BY all appearances the silver ques

A BILL providing for the admission
of Montana Territory as a state was
introduced in senate by Mr. Yoorhees
daring Monday's session.
THE committee on invalid pensions
of the House agreed to report in favor
of the bill increasing the monthly
pensions of widows from $8 to sl2.
The Judicial Salary bill was passed.
It gives all the United States District
Court Judges $5,000 a year, and pro
hibits them from appointing tLeir rel
atives to office in their courts.
THK total amount of the appropria
tion for improving rivers and harbors
was limited to $11,000,000, by the
. respective house committee last Fri
day. Now for a struggle to divide
these $11,000,000 to best advantage
among the needy districts.
Gov. CURTIN, after having refused
to serve as chairman of an insignifi
cant committee, in justice to himself
and his state, is given a place on the
committee on naval affairs, A. S. He
witt having surrendered his place in
favor of Curtin. This looks more
like business and fairness. Broad
statesmanship should always have
the preference to factious schemes
iu filling important house committees.
THE DAUPHIN COUNTY COURT decid
ed against the Pennsylvania Railroad
Company in the outh Pennsylvania
Railroad question. The decision of
Jndge Simon ton meets with almost
universal favor, as it compels great
railroad corporations to obey the dic
tates of the constitution as well as
other people have to obey it. The
. Pennsylvania now determines to ap
peal to the Supreme court, but no
body expects a change of Judge Si
monton's decision, except the compa
A DISGRACEFUL political action,
which very much resembles the elec
tion fraud of 1876, was that commit
ed by the Ohio legislature, when they
pitched out the democratic members
of the Cincinnati district and filled
their places with republican rivals and
so managed to re elect John Sherman
to the United States senate, and avoid
the danger of a possible election of the
democratic candidate Allen G. Thur
. man. Then, in order to still the
. pangs of their consciences, some of
the members proposed an amendment
to examine the rights of said demo
cratic members to their seats in the
legislative halls, and if the examina
tion should result in their favor, to
reinstall them. A poor way ot
throwing sand into the people's eyes.
THE PRESIDENTIAL SUCCESSION BILL
passed the House and the serious
question of who shall fill the execu
tive chair in case of the President's
and Vice President's death is satisfac
torily decided. The bill has the
President's approval and signature
and is now a law. The Presidency,
according to the bill, will after the
Vice President, devolve upon the
members of the cabinet in the follow
ing order—Secretary of State, Secre
tary of Treasury, Secretary of War,
Attorney General, Postmaster Gener
al, Secretary of Navy and Secretary
of Interior. This seems a fair dispo
sal of an important matter, and Con
gress may be congratulated for get
ting rid of it at this time. Besides
putting seven lives between the pres
idential chair and the people, it is a
most gratifying thought to the democ
racy that the succession is by this
new law securely put within their
party. If the law should become part
of the constitution yet it would settle
the question for all future time.
The Bill Passed Exactly as It Was
Adopted by the Senate.
WASHINGTON, January 15.—The
House took a whole afternoon's session
on the Presidential succession bill and
sat continuously until after six o'clock
in order to finish it. There was a prior
order for an eyeniug's session on pen
sion bills of a private character, but on
motion of Mr. Mason, chairman of the
pension committee, who stated that
there was very little business of that
kind ready, the order was vacated.
The succession bill was thus pressed to
a final vote aud was adopted without
alteration as it came from the Senate.
With the president's signature it will
become the law of the land.

The shock was felt for many miles a

WASHINGTON, Jan. 14.— Senator
Miller, of California, and Representa
tive liankin, of Wisconsin, who have
both been lying critically ill for some
time with Bright's disease of the kid
neys, are reported as gradually growing
worse. The Senator has been uuable
to go to the Capitol since his arrival
from the Pacific Coast, but Rankin,
after a desperate effort, made liib ap
pearance upon the first day of the ses
sion and was sworn in, though since
that time Ue has been losing strength
and his death is expected witnio a day
or two. He is now partially paralyzed
and delirious most of the time. Until
very recently both patients were report
ed as improving, and their friends
were much gratified, but at-the'present
time the friends of the member from
Wisconsin have given up all hope, and
the family of the California Senator
are anxious about the result of his ill
Huntingdons Tale of Sorrow.
Severe Weather Oomp9ls Worthy
People to Appeal for Aid to
HUNTINGDON, Jan. 17-—'There are
more hunger and suffering among the
poor people of this city this winter than
ever before in its history. The recent
extremely cold weather has compelled
the disclosure ot many cases of destitu
tion that were before concealed. There
has been scarcely any work for labor
ing men who haye not had regular em
ployment, especially since the building
of the water works was suspended, and
men of sober and iudustrious habits
have been unable to provide for their
families. During previous winters
there was a relief society, but now
there is no organization of th 3 kind,
nor other systematized charity here.
The applications to the Directors of the
i'ocr of the county for aid have been
unusually numerous, and, because of
their number, those officials have be.
come more careful and reluctant than
ever in granting it. The industries
that have just beeu revived will employ
but a small proportion of those in need
of work, and tlie fact that there aie
prospects of work for a few is likely lo
bring more people here than there a 6

A Sudden Summons.
WASHINGTON, Jan. 17.— The com
munity was profoundly shocked ytster
day afternoon at the announcement of
the death of Miss Katherine Lee Bay
ard, eldest daughter of the Secretary of
State. She received the guests at the
large reception at their home last night,
aud was gayer and more spirited than
she had been for some time, as for a
week past she had been suffering from
a severe cold and neuralgia. The phy
siciaus pronounced the cause of her
sudden death heart disease.
Miss Katharine Lee Bayard was the
eldest of the six daughters, and through
the long period during which her moth
er had been an invalid she had been
given all the charge and responsibility
of the family. All leaned and depend
ed on her, and her younger sisters had
a love and admiration for her that was
unusual among sisters. She was a
clever and brilliant girl, whose wit and
repartee was proverbial; and she was
always surprising her friends with
some unexpected turn and phase of her
character. She was a most fearless
rider, aud at hunts and riding parties
would not hesitate at putting her horse
The Cabinet circle and society in
general will pay respect to Secretary
Bayard's family by canceling all en
gagements of this week.
