New York Weekly. THK COUNCIL AND FRANCHISES. It is rather a , singular fact that three newspapers of this cily the rabid Gentile Trib-une, the conservative Herald, and tho radical Mormon church organ, the Dcseret News have united in assailing tho city council for granting permits for tho investment of. capital iu new street railway enterprises. The assault of tho Tribuno was simply villainous, if the charges made are true, and wo shall not believo them until they are proven. Even if true, tho Tribune's method of attack was covert and cowardly in that it did not name the four councilmen charged with being dishonest men and boodlcrs, thus throwing suspicion upon any member of tho council. The News endorsed tho Tribuno by reproducing tho article, and staling that it was in accord with it, and that a d blow hud been struck at tho council. Tho Herald's criticism of the council's action was Half-wa- y decent and digni-fied. Notwithstanding this singular unan-imity on the part of these three papers, The Times believes that the council has acted for the best interests of the public in granting the street railway fran-chises, which have caused this upheaval in certain interested quarters. Wo believo iu giving franchises to all legitimate enterprises in every caso where tho public will bo benefitted thereby and where the promoters manifest good faith and have the capital to carry out their plans. At tho same time we believo that old cor-porations which have invested largo stuns of money in public improvements should be treated fairly, but that docs not mean that they should bo given ex-clusive rights iu order to shut out new enterprises. That would bo simply cre-ating a monopoly a thing which should not bo tolerated in any community. Iu this connection it is but fair, howoTer, to commend tho old street car company for its recent Improvements. It has given to this city a good system of street transportation, and we hope that it will rapidly uoiitiuuo its extensions on the streets upon which it lias acquired tho right to lay tracks. Tho old company has tho right to occupy a vast extent of territory, and is botiud to make money. New companies will not materially hurt its business if it keeps up its system of exlensioUH. The giving of franchises to new companies means a healthy com-petition, tho rapid building of street car lines on streets whero they are needed, the employment of a large number of... men, and the putting Into circulation of a big sum of money. Tho ' .encouragement to new enterprises means prosperity, and yet it is strange that there are news-papers that oppose tho wheels of prog-ress and villify tho council for acting in tho interest of the public. The Timks is not opposed iu any way to tho old street car company, nor is it tho champion of any uew corporation. It does favor, however, all new enter-prises upon tho ground that competi-tion is necessary for tho public good, and iu this connection it believes that' the action of tho city council in the matter of tho railway franchises meets the approval of every honest aud pub-lic spirited man in tho community. The council was requested - by the over-whelming vote of a large mass meeting of citizens, under tho auspices of tho chamber of commerce, to do just what it has done. What else could tho eoun- - cil do? Are not the councilmen tho servants of tho people? " Tho Tribuno says .tho franchise in question was secretly introduced, and railroaded through, that it covers the ground which the council had agreed to give to the qld company, that it parallels "street after street where the present service is perfect," and gives tho right to charge double the faro demanded by tho old company, aud so so. Now, tho fact is that tho only street paralleled is Second South, and that by a single track, and not by "four tracks and four lines of poles." This prlvilego had been asked iu all tho petitions of the new company, and openly and per-sistently urged for a year past. The Times, however docs not think it is hardly the correct thing to parallel any street. Two tracks on a ttrcct are enough. More than two tracks would seem to bo an infringement upon the vested rights of the old pompany, as well as a trespass upon space demanded by tho public tralllc, unless there is absolute necessity for tho occupation of a portion of a street by three or four tracks, This is a matter that ought to bo carefully considered. As to a doublo rate of faro, tho Tribuno by lookhig at the old .company's fran-chise will seo that tho rate is the same iu both charters. It is not likely, how-ever, that a ten cent fare will ever bo charged by cither company. Such an extortion would simply ho liiianeial suicide. The Tribune cannot prove a single instance iu which tho council has shown any antagonism to the old company. It has simply givoii fair treatment to tho applicants for new fraucbises, and in doing that it has acted iu accord with au overwhelming public sonlimotit. some time ago by a rabid dog, which was afterward shot. Mr. Harvey care-fully attended to his horse and expected to save him, but all tho well-know- n symptoms of hydrophobia soon de-veloped. Tho horse bit his stall, snap-ped viciously at every thing within reach, and finally died after suffering intensely. Last year the world raised 2,000,000.-00- 0 bushels of wheat. The United States grew 400,000,000 bushels; France a00,00ll00 India; 287,030,000; Russia (with Poland),8,000,000; Portugal, 9.000,-00- 0 Denmark, 0,000,009; Spain, 73,000,-00- Switzerland, 2,500,000; Germany, 84,000,000; Hungary, 05,000,000; Asia Minor, 87,000,000; Persia, 22,000,000. Mr. Youngblood. an old settler m Coffee County, Georgia, but yet a strong and robust man for his advanced age, has killed 003 deer in his time. Ho sticks to his old rifle, and says ho can yet see to cut a turkey's head off a distaneo of seventy-liv- e yards. Ho says he would not give the old gun now for a carload of Winches-ter rifles. A queer while and red robin aston-ishes tho fisherman of Quonochontaug, R. I. It has built its nest in a shaggy reach of pasture near the thundering ocean breakers. The bird's body is of a snowy white, even to the tip of its tail, except its breast, which is of a rosy red. An albino robin is very rare, but a red and white robin was never heard of before. The library of Cornell University pos-sesses an oriental manuscript written on palm leaves consisting of 1!)!5 strips or leaves, each seven by ono and a quarter inches, fastened together by a cord passing through a hole in the cen-ter of each leaf. The writing is done on each, side of the leaves by etching tho characters with a sharp instrument on the palm leaves which have been afterward rubbed over with a black pigment. Texan farmers have been greatly by tho depredations by rats, which have destroyed their crops iu many eases. ., In or'der to exterminate the rodents all the entrances but one to a burrow arc slopped up. At the open one an iron teakettle, is placed with a pipe leadiugfrom the nozzle down into the burrow. Sulphur is placed in the kettle, a lire made under it and tho fumes of tho sulphur being driven into the burrow every rat in it is quickly killed. VhlWKD AND CONUKNSEU An exulting 8uchi! took place at a burial in Syracuse, N. Y., the family nionnmcnl falling, smashing the colliii and precipitating it, tho body, uiul a pall bearer into tho grave. A new cof-fin was soon obtained and the corpse buried. . It is Hid that some genius has in-vented un electric reeoruer which may be attached to a gas meter and which will infallibly anil correctly record the xaet amount of " as consumed, no mat-ter what may bo the vagaries of tho meter itself. Not less than fifteen parishes, or ouo-fourt-of tho state of Louisiana, is affected by the present flood, and the dumage is almost incalculable. ' In 1882 it is estimated that the loss was $1.V 000,000. It will probably exceed half that amount this year. There is a craze in London for queer leather.

Tho confederate song, "Dixie," was of northern authorship. Forcight hours an infant of Stephen Bnrlecuof Bridgeport, lay in a trance, and an undertaker canto and put the. babo in a casket. Everything was ready for tho burial when the child suddenly woke up and sang out lustily, "Ma!" It is all right now. Tho servants and mistresses of Vi-enna have to mauage their affairs un-der the superintendence of the police. Tho latter keep a "servants' boot," iu which each girl's dismissals and aro recorded, together with copies of character given by each Tho little town of Pankow, near Ger-many, is preparing for au event which promises to make her name famous. From July 6 to 10 10,000 Gorman marks-men will assemble there to celebrate tho tenth national German shooting fes-tival by competing for $100,000 worth of prizes. Between the Ural and Okhotsk seas there is a spot half as large as the stale of Michigan, which is frozen ground to the depth of ninety-fou- r feet. That is, it has never thawed out sineo the world was created, and probably never will, and even if nobody would havo any use for it. That mysterious disease, La Nonna, lias appeared in western Franco. A farmer belonging to a village near Dole, iu tho Jura, slept for four days and nights, anil awoke in such an exhausted condition that bo died two days later. Another fatality occurred near Press-bur- g in Austria,' a boy of ten dying after a similar sleep of four days. Tho New York Coaching club, which has begun its trips, uses three different classes of horses, tho fancy "city" team, which prances along to One Hundred and Twenty-eight- h street; the gallop-ers," which will make up for any lost time, theneo to Unionporl, and the "business" horses, which will tackle the rougher roads on the last part of the journey. The statement in an eastern magazine that "butlcrllies have gone to the re-markable height of 800 feet in the Alps" lias elicited from Mr. Maxwell of Cali-fornia, a letter to the Scicntilie Ameri-can, in which he pronounces the trip not at 'all- remarkable. Ho writes that last summer he encountered numerous butterflies ou a peak of the Sierra Ne-vad- 13,000 feet high. Tho roads are not so straight as they might be in Redinglontowr.ship, Maine. Last week a man who wanted to drive two yoke of oxen to the camp from the other side of Saddle-bac- k Mountain, only six miles away in a direct line, had to travel fifty-eigh- t miles before he reached the camp. An old duck hunter of Savannah says that a flight of ducks coming south on one day, if followed by other flights in the same direction days or weeks after-ward, will not vary to exceed twenty-liv- e feel from the path of the ducks which have preeeod them, aud they will alight in almost the exact spot where proceeding flights have settled.

The Tribune and the News occupy-ing tho same couch, present a singular spectacle. They aro strango bod fol-lows. Is not this a violation of tho Edmunds-Tucke- r law? 'Itr'rcgard to tho Tribune's attack on the council, Tub Times ventures the prediction that that body will be hoard from in no uncertain tones. Tho Hor-al- d can rest assured of that fact. ' KOVEB Cleveland will probably not suffer much longer from superfluous ilosh. The "anti-fat- " that is being given him in largo doses by Dr. Dana contains enough vinegar to reduce him to a shadow, The Hcraltl just now is treating the coifticil rather smoothly. It is not so very long ago that it handled the city fathers pretty! roughly. Tho Herald needs watching, it may bo a little too "smooth" at times. It is positively stated that Col. Kich-ar- d J. Hint ou, chief of tho artesian well investigation that is being conducted by the department of agriculture, is to make a thorough investigation in Utah and adjoining stales and that the work will be vigorously prosecuted. Tnn.Triljtine certainly has souio very queer methods. For instance, in criti-cising Councilman Parsons it goes out of its way lo get in a lick at tho coun-cilman's brother, who was not the Tribune's candidate for tho office of United Stales marshal, and who lias nothing to do with the affairs of tho council. ...
