THEtreasurj department is informed
tLat many of the tradedollars present

been filled so skillfully as to almost de.
THE legis ture of New Jersey propo
se sto allow women to vote for school
directors says the Harrisburg Patriot,
and adds that this is eminently proper,
but doseß't go far enough. If the wo
menof the state had the right to vote
for members of the legislature the
probabilities are that the standard of
statesmanship in that commonwealth
would be improved.
THERE seems to be a general dis
position favoring the location of new
capitol buildings, ifsuch are to be e
rected, at Bellefonte. Hon. J. A.Wood"
war done of the rep rese ntatives from
this county, was the first to offer a re
solution to that effect in the House,but
the legislature did not seem to be ready
for the question and tabled the reso
lution. SiDce then the press and the
people tave strongly expressed them
selves in favor of Bellefonte, as as uit
able and convenient place for the state
capitol, and it looks as it the mat ter
might assume a tangible shape. It is
beyond dispute that the capital of
Centre county is just as well adapted
for the capitol of Pennsylvania. One
of the chief points in its favor is its
central location and should Bellefonte
be chosen for the state's bureaucracy it
would make CENTRE county the ccutre
of the old Keystone not only geograph
icaily but in point of importance and
attraction. There is no town in the
state we think that would carry the
honors of the governmental seat with
more grace than thee t' of the "Beau
tiful Fountain". Should the buildings
go up we hope it will be at Bellefonte.
LEGISLATIVE business was brisk in
both Houses* this week. A large
Dumber of bills were finally passed by
the Senate and the House. Among the
bills passed by the Senate were those
providing for the payment of the ex
penses of the county commissioners
incurred in the conveyance of indigent
insane to state lunatic hospitals; to
prevent unauthorized persons from
wearing badges or other military de
vices; to traosfer the supervision 01
insane from the board of charities to
the committee on lunacv.
A resolution was adopted for the
adjournment of the senate from to-day
until next Wednesday.
ID the House the bill providing tor
a bank examiner to regulate bank
affairs,etc.was defeated by a vote of 7G|
to 71* The following bills were pass
ed finally: To amend the sixth section
of article 10 of an act to provide fcr
the health and safety of persons em
ployed in and about the anthracite
coal mines of Pennsylvania and for
the protection and preservation of prop
erty connected therewith, approved the
30th day of June, A. D* 1885, to a
mena the second section of article one
of the same bill to prevent the stale of
intoxicating drinks on Decoration day;
making an appropriation to the east
ern state penitentiary for the salaries
of officers, repairs, books and station

making an appropriation of $90,000
for tbe support of the Pennsylvania

WASHINGTON, Mar. 28,1887.-
Seeretary Whitney has placed anoth
er brilliant feather in the caD of this
Administration Probably no Demo
crat, not even Samuel J. Tilden while
living, ever received such unstinted
praise from the Republican press as has j
been showered upon him during the
past week. Nothing lias been done by
any member of Mr. Cleveland's Cabinet
since it was organized more calculated
to win popularity than is the act of the
Secretary of the navy by which the
work of fortifying our seaports and
building ironclads is estaolished on a
• From every side his energy and saga
city is applauded, the work he has done
to beguile bidders to accept offered
terras, and the ability he exhibits in di
recting the general work of his Depart
ment. It really looks too as if the
name of Mr. Whitney would be associ
ated in history with the building of the
American Navy. The response to him
was so prompt that the work of lilting
up the Washington Nayv Yard as an
ordinance factory for the assembling
and completion of heavy guns and steel
forgings, will be begun soon and rapidly
carried forward. Needless delays can
be avoided tecause it is shown that the
gun forgings and armor plates can be
furnished in a much shorter time than
For more than eighteen months Sec
retary Whitney has bee i industriously
devising the means that make success
possible. He has been studying the
conditions of the problem— determin
ing the needs of defensive armor, gaug
ing the impact of projectiles, fixing oil
tests by which the Department will be
governed, and making the inducements
as at tractive as possible
It is to be hoped that there will be no
more lamentations for the present over
the failure of the Naval bills. At least
Secretary Whitney is satisfied with the
outlook, lie says the problem which
puzzled everybody is solved, and that
work of fortifying coasts and equipping
ships is in as good shape as it would
have been if the Senate bills had become
Since I wrote you the long discussed
Inter- State Commerce Commission has
been completed, announced, commented
upon approved—and now it is about to
organize and go to work. The five law
yers composing it, and who represent
the States of Alabama, Illinois, Michi
gan. New York and Vermont, are
practically placed in charge of private
pi owelty valued at about seven thous
and million dollars. This tremendous
responsibility is greatly increased w.en
it is rememliered that almost the entire
interna 1 commerce of the country is af
fected by the action of this new court.
No one doubts the honesty of the
commission, and they are all conceded
to be men of ability, but their labors
will be complex and comprehensive, the
new law is a vast problem; every feature
of its operations more or less perilous,
and whatever is done, the Commission
will be criticised and opposed on every
side. The railroad men, shippers and
travelers, producers and consumers are
waiting to pour complaints, queries,
communications and requests by thous
ands upon theCominissioners as soon as
they are ready to receive them, and will
make their lives burdensome of course.
I'lie effect of the new law upon this
city will he pronounced. Praeticullv
it gives the Capital a new Government
Department. A large important bu
reau at once, a large
clerical and official force will he ap
pointed by the Commission, legal and
other representatives of all the rail
roads in the United States will he
drawn here, besides thousands of peo
pie interested in questions brought be
fore the Commission. Altogether it
will greatly add to the activity of the
coming summer in Washington.

Two lawyers fought a duel in court
at Newberry, S.C., the other day. The
trouble arose from Jones calling John

firing at each other. The end of the af
fray was the killing of Jones, who is
hut 21 years old. Johnson at once sur
rendered himself to the authorities.
Pension Claims Filing Up*
WASHINGTON, March 25. The com
missioner of pensions, in a weekly re

states that 287,137 applications are now

Claims are being filed at the rate of 8,

NEW YORK, March, 27 —Five hun

rived at Castle Garden Jale this after
noon. Tlie scene that followed beggar
ed description. They rushed into the
rotunda pell mell shrieking and howling
for food like ravenous wolves. They
crowded around the lunch tables, climb

helpless women and children, pande
monium reigned supreme for fuilv an
hour. The surging mob was utterly
uncontrollable. Women and clti'dren
were trarppled on, crowded and pushed
away. The officers of the garden aided
in the distribution by throwing loaves
orer the heads of those nearest to tfie
crowd. Every timeaJoaf was fired into

An extensive cave-in occurred on
Monday morning in this stale by which
the lands of the Fairmount coal compa
ny, near Pittston station, on the Dela
ware and Hudson railroad, were seri
ousl) affected. Largo, gapping holes
appeared that threatened to swallow up
every thing within their reach. All the
direct openings of the mine were closed
by the crash and the ventilating ma
chinery brought to a standstill, cutting
off all air from the large numlier of
mules stabled in the underground work
ings, all of which are now no doubt suf
focated. The loss on property of the
company will reach over 101)000. The
track of the Delaware and Hudson rail
road has sunk from ten to fifteen teet
where it crosses the cave-in.

PHILADELPHIA, March 27,—A collis

valuable horses, oc cured last night a
