Hon. Fernando Wood, member of
Congress from New York city, died at
Hot Springs, Ark., on the 14th Inst.
He had gone there for his health.
Ice-boating on the Hudson River is
now the rage. The boats race with the
trains on the H. R. R. R., which for
miles runs in sight of the river, and
generally the boats can beat the fastest
running the trains can do.
Hon. E. B. Coxe, of Luzerne county,
whose conscience would not allow him
to take the oath, as a Senator, has been
re-elected and this time was probably
careful to keep his expenditures within
No United States Senator has yet
been elected by the legislature. An
attempt at compromise was made last
week by the selection of a committee
composed of twelve from each faction
who were to select and report on a can
didate. The person receiving a two
thirds vote in this committee was to be .
the candidate of the party and to recelv
the' united support in joint, conxejation.
So far the exertions of the committee are
fruitless though they have ballotted a
number of times. The Beaver men
however seem to stick to the idea that
compromise means that "the other fel
lows'' shall yield, and so vote most Of
the time for Beaver. Having withdrawn
the candidate for which the people had
expressed a decided preference, it would
. seem as though there should be no
trouble in selecting a man that would
be acceptable to the people and credita
ble to the State, but yet the dead lock
now, seems to be as strong if not
stronger than ever.
Tcesday'8 Elections show that the
independent voter was out in full force.
In Pittsburgh the citizens' ticket for
Mayor, beat the Republican, and in
Reading the case was reversed, the Dem
ocrats being beaten by the independents.
in .fmiadeipnia tne citizens ticket was
elected, King for Mayor beating Stokely
by about 5000 majority, and Hunter for
Tax-Receiver, having a much larger
majority. These elections are in neither
case to be classed as party victories.
Col. W. B. Mann one of the great lights
among the Republican politicians in
Philadelphia says :
" I regard this result as proceeding in
a great measure, not from the exertions
of the Committee of One Hundred, but
from the deeply-grounded dissatisfaction
of the masses of the Republican party in
reference to the boss system of making
nominations, and I believe that the
same people will beat any man hereafter
who may be nominated by the bosses,
no matter how pure or competent he
may be. I have always expressed my
Belf decidedly to the effect that the only
$&y to preserve the Republican strength
in Philadelphia and to perpetuate it is to
open the nominations to all, and by a
system of honest delegate elections,
where Republicans shall not be per
mitted to cheat each other, the favorite
of the masses may be nominated. City
Committees should be organized to pro
mote the election of the nominees of the
party, and not from year to year to
The whole secret of the disaffection is
shown in the last four lines of the above
The Snow Blockade.
Chicago, Feb. 15. The Inter-Ocean't
specials indicated that on the cross roads
and railroad lines out of the thorough
fares there is still a virtual blockade in
Illinois, Iowa and Wisconsin. In some
localities farmers are unable even to
reach the markets. There is therefore,
Coal is scarce in Omaha, there being
only forty tons of Iowa soft coal in the
city, with a prospect of several days'
blockade for freight. The loss of cattle in
the grazing sections will be very heavy".
To add to the discomfiture of rural
points a heavy snow storm set in last
evening in western Iowa aud eastern
Bioux City, Iowa, Feb. 15. The last
snow plow of the Illinois Central road
broke on Sunday last. At Sioux Falls
an indignation meeting of 200 delayed
travelers decided to seize the train and
open a road to the city, but gave it up
when the engineer disabled his engine.
They have little fuel and no whisky.
Denver, Col., Feb, 15. The Kansas
Paclflo railroad Is snowed up from Den
ver to Brookvllle.
The Change In Publlo Opinion.
It is noted by the Washington Nation
al Republican that "Fernando Wood
was a member of the Congress which
appropriated $30,000 in aid of Professor
Morse's experimental telegraph line be
tween Washington and Baltimore. Mr.
Wood voted for the appropriation, and
was, in consequence, defeated in his
next race for Congress, his constituents
having no confidence In the judgment
of a Representative who was willing to
give his countenance to such a visionary
scheme as communicating human intel
ligence over wires hung on poles."
Arrest of a Son of Brlgham.
Denver, February 15. John W.
Young, a son Brlgham Young, enroule
to Arizona, was arrested on his arrival
here last night by a deputy United
States marshal on telegraphio lustruo
tlons from the United States marshal at
Salt Lake City, where he has been in
dicted for bigamy. He gave a bond for
$2,000. The first wife supposed to be
the complainant, is from Philadelphia,
a lady whom Young married some years
ago upon his pledge not to practice po
lygamy and who bad left him when he
took his second wife, Lucetta Cobb.
The latter was in Denver awaAtjjJj'g
Young's arrival. .V
Edens.D. TV," February 16. -There
are sixteen,ises of small-pox in Call
cope, a W( tie village in Sioux county,
Iow. Rufus Stone, publisher of the
Sioux county Independent, died last Sat
urday of smallpox and remains unburi
ed, the fear of contagion being so great
that no one can be prevailed upon to
bury him. Five dollars a day has been
offered for nurses in vain. The supply
of fuel and provisions has given out.
Movements will be made in Sioux City
for the relief of the suffering com
munity. Poisoned by Diseased Pork.
Rondout, Feb. 16. Members of two
families named Boyce and Felter,of this
city have been made dangerously ill
by eating what is supposed to have been
diseased pork. Some of the same meat,
which was given to two cats by the
Felter family, killed the felines. The
pork was purchased in this city of a
dealer who said it was farm raised in
in Ulster county. The symptoms of the
sick persons are the same as the symp
toms attending trichina poisoning.
(HSTTwo brothers died under rather
peculiar circumstances, in this county,
last week. It seems there had been a
disagreement between them respecting
some property, and they had not been on
speaking terms for a long time. The
older brother, lately expressed a wish to
see the younger. The latter on being
requested to call on his brother, replied
that " he would see him in h 1 first.
The elder one was burled last Friday,
and the younger died on the day of the
funeral. Was it judgment? Rahway
N. J. Democrat.

OUR WASHINGTON LETTER.
Washington, D. C, February 16, 1881.
The debate on the River and Harbor bill con
tinues in the House, and may for a length of
time that will make the prospects of an extra
session probable. Public attention Is now
being drawn to this bill in such a manner that
the iniquities contained In it will be so fully
exposed that there will probably be some im
provement In the manner of legislating for
Rivers and Harbors after this year.
Commodore Oliver Perry Green Watson,
sixty-three years old, six feet high, arrived
here yesterday by way of the chain bridge, all
the way from Ashtabula, Ohio, having, as he
states, left there in November last for Wash
ington, and walked all the way to see President
Hayes, whom ho states he met last fall in
Ohio, and received from him an invitation to
visit him and remain until after the Inaugura
tion. He visited the Capitol, Smithsonian and
the President's House after he came to town.
He did not see the President but was sent by the
doorkeeper to police head-quarters, where he
would be provided with lodgings, etc. He pro
poses to call ou the President, who he thinks
will receive him cordially, having Invited him
to Washington. It appears that the President
on his recent trip to Ohio, made a speech, In
which he invited his Ashtabula friends, if they
came to Washington, to call and see him, and
that induced Mr. C. O. P. O. Watson to make
his long trip.

The death of Hon. Fernando Wood, which
occurred at Hot Springs, Arkansas, on Sunday
night last, cast a deep gloom over members of
Congress. The House and Senate passed ap
propriate resolutions In respect to his memory,
and the former body, which in his death loses
one of It's ablest members, appointed a com
mittee to superintend the funeral ceremonies.
The remains will be brought h ere and will
he in state at the Capitol.
Mr. Wood was Chairman of the Ways and
Means Committee of the House and the value
of his good judgment and wide experience in
financial matters and In the financial history
of the country, will make his death a severe
loss In the deliberations of Congress upon these
matters. The present funding bill Is Mr.
Wood's latest act of public service. It was his
ambition to see It become a law, and to secure
this he hastened his death, for nntil it passed
the House he neglected the entreaties of his
physicians and friends to retire from active
duty and seek the quiet and rest In the loss of
which the country now suffers a greater one.
