Again at Eureka California only n
few das ago bits of charred wood
were brought up from a depth of 500
feet in boring an artesian well. There
were found also pieces of shells such
as arc common aloug the ocean beach.
Thcso came up from as far down as
580 feet which depth has now been
reached. Theso fragments of shells
arc found in considerable quantity
and two or three pieces of bone from
the skeleton of a bird havo come up.
The folding of such things so deep in
the earth is exciting considerable in-

quiry naturally arises how camo they

that at some period the strata in
which they are embedded were not

time those shells were on the surface.
And on thourfaco iu ages past some-

Trying to Organize a Gigantic
St Louis May 25. A local paper
gives an account of a gigantic scheme
to cousolidato all the cattle interests
of the Northwest and form a company
which shall control $150000000 worth
of cattle and grazing lands. It seems
to have originated with tho Wyoming
Stock Association of Cheyenne and
is the outgrowth of a combination of
smaller cattlemen iuto companies
which has been going on for several
jcars. This scheme has been formed
g the largest cattle coni-
nown controlling nun-
lousands ot cattle and
ranges larger than mauv States.
The failure of Swan Bros brought
matter to a focus unexpectedly. The
plan is to uultc Wyoming Colorado
Eastern Utah. Western Nebraska
Southern Montana aud Southern Da
kota into one great company each
surrendering his iudividual herd aud
ouch anu reccivlug a proportionate
amount of stock in return. A similar
association has becu recently formed
in Texas but one of far less extent
aud Ics? complete in its organization.

tho danger that Mr. George fears.
Tho now law is In keeping with the
sentiment of the country and rcspon-
bivc to the best iutcrests of both the
Indians and the whites. Mr..Gcorc
must admit that in. their present coo
dition the complete civilization of the
race cannot be hoped for. With the
millions of dollars spent upon them
annually and tho millions they derive
a3 interest upon their iuvested funds
and with all the provisions made lor
their education and social advance-
ment they make uo perccptiblo pro-
gress while the negroes who havo
been out of bondage less than a quar-
ter of a century are already rapidly
adapting themselves to their now re-
lations and duties. To make them
individual proprietors of land in uso
and caltivatiou 13 tho only way to civ
ilize and qualify them for citizenship.
All other methods have failed and
the forcible system of degradation to
which wardship and tribal ownership
has kept them reduced has involved
tho government in great cxpsuse and
coustant annoyance. Answering tho
objections of those who obicct to In
dian citizenship Secretary Lamar
rightly says :
After incorporating iuto our body
politic 4000000 of blacks in a state of
slavery and investing them with citi-
zenship and suffrage wo need not
strain at the gnat of 260000 Indians.
It would only bo an additional mor-
sel and a very small one.
The ownership of homesteads will
stimulate them to industry and educa-
tion if anything will and give them
a responsible interest in the affairs of
government which as wards absolute-
ly under its guardianship they would
never require. Tho time has certainly
come when the policy of keeping the
Indians together iu their tribal or-
ganizations and restraining and con-
trolling them by bayonets and rifles
should bo abaudoncd and a new era
inaugurated on era in which tbey
shall be enabled and required to
qualify themselves for the duties of
American citizenship and to support
themselves by industry and toil.

they 'taw it and they knew that It was
wrong to "tarry long" over the wino
cup. This opinion cuts no figure
however as to whether prohibition is
a good thing or not. Wino is all right
in its place even when it is a little
stronger than tho so-called grape-tea
unt-that does not prove that men
should be licensed to set themselves
up in public places to persuade pccplc
to buy and drink it. The wine con-
troversy is a small-sized side issuo and
has little to do with tho main question.

Mr. Jay Gould is quoted as sayiug
ho intends to build 6.000 milc3 of rail-
road this year. And yet there be
people who think he is ruiuiu" tho
So long as Mr. Gould puts all his
surplus earnings into new railroads
tho country cau stand it yet it mav
ue uaugerous lor so much power to
be concentrated in tho bauds of one
man. But in the course of events Mr.
Gould will die and his property will
be divided up and go inf o other hands.
If rich men did not die in the course
of time their power would ultimate
ly become really dangerous. But
time is a great leveller and bi3 scythe
spares none. Fortunes are gathered
together and agaiii scattered to tho
Winds. Sous of poor'meu to-day will
be tho millionaires twenty five or fifty
years hence while the descendents of
onr uabobs of this generation may be
the hod carriers of tho future. Tho
glory of this country lies in the op
portunities for advancement that it
offers to the sons of poor men. Take
away these opportunities by making
it impossible for men to become
wealthy and j on destroy ambition
stop progress and chM.k civilization.
