6 THE RAMIE PLANT. A Very Profitable Industry for California. The Soil and Climate of the Sacra mento and San Jonquln Valleys Best Salted for its Growth—Chance for Paying Investment. The bulletin lately issued by Professor E. \V. Hilgard, Director of the Agricult ural Experiment Station of the State Uni versity at Berkeley, on the ramie plant, is one of more than usual interest to this State, and especially those having lands in the Sacramento Valley. The bulk-tin comes just at the time when a movement is on foot to establish a station for the working of the ramie plant at Sacra mento, and it will therefore be rend with greater interest. Interest in the culture of ramie has been revived lately on the announcement of satisfactory experiments, and a bill has been reported favorably in both houses of the Legislature authorizing the State Board of Agriculture to give a premium of one cent per pound on ramie produced in the State up to £5,000 each year.

Vest, in opposing the Nicarague Canal bill, said that if Great Britain assumed that the Clayton-Bulwer treaty was in existence (and the Senate has no intima tion that it did not), then it was fair to assume that the Government of Great Britain would act as the Government of the United States would act itnder similar circumstances. If Great Britain should, in spite of tho Cbiyton-Bulwer treaty, undertake to build a canal across the isthmus without the consent of the United States, would Great Britain be satisfied when told ...

The Placer Argus, in referring to the published bill of fareof the Elstner Hotel, Hanetown, in 1850, which was a feature of the late pioneer gathering in Chicago, says: "Milt Elstner was a prominent figure in El Porado County for many yeans, and, if we mistake not, was Sheriff of that county in the fifties. He ha* been gathered to his fathers long ago. No mention is made of milk in the "bill of fare," but we know a lady who sold milk for a dollar a pint, eight dollars a gallon. Mhi» who want**! miik would go to the. lady's rabin before she milked and wait patiently, in turn, like going to general delivery of a postollice, and when the pint of milk was measured out, they ■would open their buckskin purses and the lady would put in the thumb and two fore fingers and take out a pinch of dust in payment for the milk. This was twice a day occurren...

DOYNES' WONDERFUL DOGS. "Yes, it was plucky thing, certainly, out I can't help thinking that the motive j was not altogether an unmixed one.

This largely exceeds the con traction in the way of the retirement of bank notes, and in ten years would, at tin 1 same rate, gradually add to the value of currency above the amount of bank notes, should they all be returned, $300, --000,000.

SUNDAY LAWS. The Subject Discussed From the Standpoint of a Pastor. Some Extracts From a Dlsconrse Preached on Sunday by Rev. G. P. Tindall. In his morning discourse yesterday, Hoy. G. P7 Tindall, pastor of the Four teenth-street Presbyterian Church, said: We are hearing much aboat public morals. Each branch of the .Legislature now in session lias a Committee on Pub lic Morals. These committees have re cently held a joint meeting to hear what people had to .say for and against a Sun day law. This is wise, for the most emi nent legal writers, as Blackstonc, define the province of law to be to cooimend What is right and to forbid what is wrong. And we ail know that what is written is very true, "Righteousness exaltcth a na tion ; but sin is a reproach to an y peo ple."

6 LAMBERT'S LETTER. Our Correspondent's Views of Mr. Cleveland's Chances. What He Thinks About the Prospects of the two Great Parties—Theoso phy Made Clear—Some Interesting Scraps of Ancient History. [Special correspondence or the Record-Union] "Washington, Feb. 14,1891. During the debate on the silver bill in the United States Senate, the hostile atti tude of President Harrison was often re ferred to derisively by the Democratic Senators. This onslaught was as frequently met Dy the Republican Senators and success rally repu'sed in kind. The latter had simply to recall ex-Presi dent Cleveland's famous Warner letter in 1885, advising a suspension of the coin age of the silver dollar. It was before he took his seat as Presi dent of the United States. It meant sub stantially the repeal of the so-called Bland bill, and its operation would have demonetized silver. They also referred with equal force to his subsequent bitter enmity to silver, even extending up to the end of his term of of...
