We have received a circular
giving an extract from the new
postal bill now before congress
in which is a provision that no
newspapers shall be delivered
at letter-carrier offices or dis-
tributed by carriers unless pos-
tage is paid thereon at the rate
of one cent for each two ounces
or fraction thereof. There are
nearly one hundred letter-car
rier offices in the United States.
The injustice of this law is at
once apparent; it applies not
only to newspapers published
in cities where there are letter-
carriers but it affects every
newspaper published in the
United States There is hard-
ly a paper published in the coun-
try but what sends more or less
papers to the cities. Should
the bill become a law it will
require every paper to pay the
present rate of postage on tran
sient newspapers yhen sent to
subscribers or advertisers in
cities where the free 'delivery
system is in force. Instead of
bciriga free delivery asatpres-
ent the result will" be that it
is a very expensive luxury. The
bill is a very unjust one; not
only to publishers but to the
pub'lic at large. The rate of
postage would be almost pro-
hibatory. The press of the
jentire country should protest
against the passage of this very
Unjust bill. .-

zer.sprcscnt. Col. Carl Schutzc
ted in' front of the speaker's
stand when the president an-
nounced that distribution of

strictest sense of the word.

The chief of that department should be a
man of superior intelligence and adminis-

land system; and the laws in relation to
land claims of every character; such a
knowledge in fact as could be acquired by
a personal acquaintance with the origin
and history of our State and its institutions;
and in addition to these qualifications he
should bear a character above reproach;
of invincible pluck and determination in

early age and went to Califor-

marked his early career in the

the firm of Flood & O'Brien
liquor dealers was established;
a saloon was opened which in
after years became the favorite
resort for mining men and stock
dealers. Here the firm commen-
ced speculating in stock in a
modest way. In 1868 the sa-
loon was sold out and the firm
engaged only in the mining
buisness. In this as is well
known they were very success-
ful. Mr. O'Brien left a fortune
of fifteen or twenty millions.
