THX increased interest which was
manifested all over the country in the
observance of Memorial Day goes to
show that tbe sacrifices and cnduranc
-08 of tbe fallen heroes and their living
comrades of the late rebellion are fur
from being forgotten.
One of tbe duties devolving upon
Governor Beaver within a very short
time will be the selection of proper
men to serve upon the committee
which is to take charge of affairs con
' nected with the approaching centen
nial of the adoption of the constitu
tion of tbe United States, to take
piAn in Philadelphia next September.
It is said that he has already a large
bulk of applications from which to
AN extra session of congress is now
looked upon as a certainty by most of
the members of the cabinet, and tLe
president fully expects to be obliged
to call it The cabinet officers are
guided in certain department matters,
which would be affected by a call, by
the assumption that congress will be
here in October. A large number of
senators and members are in the city
this week, and they nearly all expect
a call-
IT is principally due to the efforts
of our worthy representative, Hon.
John A. Woodward, that the legisla
ture made an appropriation of over
SIOO,OOO to the Pennsylvania State
College, located in this county. It
has been President Atherton's desire
for several years to make necessary
repairs and improvements on the col-
IpffQ IHBHIiIMn tiul I"* JawljUm
much gratified that the needed money
is forthcoming now. State College
will soon rank among the first of its
kind in the country.
IK the usual rash of unfinished bus
iness, incident to the adjournment of
the legislature, the new revenue bill
which would increase the revenues of
the state by two millions of dollars
annually, by laying a just tax on
moneyed corporations, failed to be
come a law on account of not being
signed by the President of the Senate.
It may have been accidental, but it
looks suspicious, because its failure
benefits the very parties who are least
needy of exonerations.
The Patriot advises Governor Beav
er to call an extra session to rectify
the mistake and reminds him that be
can only realize his ambition of doing
a good deal of debt-paying by having
this additional revenue.
AMONG all the traps in which hun
dreds of souls are being rushed into eter
nity by the fire fiend, the opera house
with its narrow and winding staircases
andits inadequate means of exit, is the
worst The recent conflagration at
Paris adds another to the long list of
these horrible fatalities. The Thea
tre Comique of the French Capital
was burned to the ground last week
and over two hundred lives were lost.
The death scene among the ruius beg
gared description. The fire was caus
ed by a gas jet which ignited one of
the wingß,and the stage was in flames
in less time than it takes to tell it. The
theatre was the oldest in the city and
its condition was considered danger
ous more than a fortnight ago. Old
theatres ought to go the way car
stoyes are intended to go
COMPLAINTS about the Democratic
national administration are always in
order with the Republican papers.
The Philadelphia Press squeals be
cause Republican United States offi
ere in Pennsylvania are discharged,
and says that Philadelphia has but
two importantjOffices filled by Republi
cans, while there are only thirty Re
publican postmasters remaining in of
fice. Such is the case. But what of
that Supposing the Democrats had
been in power and a republican presi
dent had succeeded a democratic presi
dent, would not every office in the
gift of the United States government
be Riled by republicans in less than
two months ? The answer is obvi
ous. Every democratic official would
have to go instanter. We don't see
anything wrong about Democrats
holding offices while they have a
chance to do so.
RHODE ISLAND had n big time on
Tuesday wlicit they inaugurated their
democratic governor, .John M. Davis.
The fact that for the first time in nian v
years the Democrats havo a hold of
the state government greatly added
to the excitement and enthusiasm ol
the occasion. Newport was lavishly
decorated and there were grand pa
rades and tho usual amount of noise
and confusion.
A CORRESPONDENT to the Philadel
phia Times writes from Washington
that the administration contemplates
meeting tho great tariff issue with a
earefully drawn up bill of its own,
which will be a distiuctive measure
upon which tho Democratic party
may safely conduct the national cam
paign. lie goes on to say that for
some days there has been more or
loss informal talk in administration oirolos
on the tariff question. From intimations
dropped in those quarters it may Ik- an
nounced that Secretary Falrehild is serious
ly contemplating a movement with the ap
probation of the President and his colleagu
es looking to a concentration of the lVmo
crats in the llonae of Representatives and
the Senate upon a measure of tarritf .reduc
tion. After careful inquiry it has loei as
certained that every member of the Cabi
net is favorable to such a programme. Af
ter the experience of the just two Congress
es the President is conviueed that but one

ty and that is the formulation of a bill in
consultation with such men as Randall and
Carlisle and others representing the diverse
positions of Democratic sentiment on the
subject for the purpose of bringing them to
gether upon some common ground of agree
The President has seen for some time
that an issue will IK- made on the tar it! and
has urged that it would In- more sagacious

administration policy than to let the qnes
tion continue to play havoc as a tlrehrand
in the ranks of the party. It is proj>osod to
make the bill an administration question in
the House and thus bring it Wforo the JHXV
pIe as a distinctive issue upon which the
1 kniiocratic jurfy will stand in flic next
Judging from the present situation of af
fairs among the party 1 nailer* jt will take a
large amount of pressure to bring the opjst
site v lews of Messrs. Carlise and Itandall
together. It has Wen suggested in Treasn
ry circles that Kentucky whisky infill euro

by pooling their differences and evolving

Secretary Fairchild is v*y ducjded in his
advocacy of reductions of revenue from
customs. The necessity of some action of
this kind, he thinks, will make itself felt
very soon. The accumulation of surplus
will now go on steadily and will
lead to formal action on his part ln-fore the
Cabinet as soon as the first indications
manifest themselves in the monetary "itera
tions of the people. The theory of re luctiotj
will be in placing raw materials, like iron
anil wool, on the free list and reduction ot
rates, on certain manufactures. There is an
idea, notwithstanding the ruinous *-
... j-icsuut rates, that certain manu
factures of iron and steel can stand a re
duction. Members of the administration
believe that there is a point at which modi
fications of tb tariff can be made without
detriment to American industry, It is no
ticeable iu their conversation that as a
rule they favor putting most of the articles
they intend to touch at all on the free list
as the ohly way to reduce revenue,it having
been the usual esjirrjeuce that reduction of
duties ou articles of home manufacture and
of large demand increases rather than di
minishes the revenue,
(Prom our regular correspondent.)
The past week has been very
lively and interesting one in Wash
ington. The National Drill has been
the great event of course, and the pro
gramme was so arranged that eacli day
of the week had some important event
of its own, so that there was variety
and interest all the time. To-day (Dec
oration Day) is H legal holiday. The
Departments are closed, and the Gov
ernment employes are free.
Unusually elaborate memorial ser
vices have been arranged to take place
at Arlington, Soldiers' Home cemetery,
the Congressional cemetery and at Gen
eral Logan's tomb. The soldiers who
have participated in rhe National Drill
will Join the Grand Army of the Re
public and the Army of the Potomac
ia processions to these places,and there
will be music and oratory aud prayers
and poetry and flowers.
The contests of the Drill are over.but
the encampment does not break up un
til this evening. The military compa
nies which went through the ordeal of
the competitive drills.after their duties
were ended, gave themselves up to fun,
sightseeing and the enjoyment of camp
life. The soldiers from Maine add New
Elsmpshire think it is pretty hot weath
er in Washington aud on some of the
parades a few of them were oyeicome
by the heat each day. But the lads
from Texas and Louisiana think it is
very cold for May, and shiver and put
on their overcoats. Altogether the
health of the camp has been good, con
sidering there are so many soldiers
here from various climates who Lave
been subjected to changes of different
kinds and to unusual exertion aud fa
tigue. Still the hospital has proved an
indispensability of the camp and there
ha 3 been constant demand for the ser
vices of the Red Cross Society, which
has charge of it.
When the rain and wind amounting
almost to a cyclone struck the city of
tents on three successive afternoons,
making havoc with camp paraphernalia
of every kind and buffeting and drench
ing the soldiers,the latter felt that they
were having a taste of the realities of
military life on a war basis which the?
had hardly anticipated. The rain
storms were quite disastrous, too, to
the finances of the Drill. Besides un
roofing the grand stand and causing
other damages which represented actual
outlay, they caused a postponement of
the pyrorama performance on two eve
nings, depriving the Drill Committee
of receipts Irem that source, and thev
also cut out a portion of etch day's
programme, as for instanco the dress
parades, at five o'clock, p. m., which
would have attracted many spectators.
General Cireely visltoJ headquarters
shortly after tho first storm and in re
aponse to somejocular reproaches about
tho weather promised that it should be
food for tho rest of tho week.
The General of the Virginia Brigade
and tho members of his staff expressed
themselves as much pleased with the
results of the encampment so far as
t heir men were concerned. They si id
it had boon a camp of instruction to
them, many of whom needed such x
--l>erieace. The strictest military disci
pline has been maintained and tbe
troops have been required to attend to
every camp duty with as much fidelity
as though they were actually in service
in the field. One of tbe odicers also
said that the encampment had boon of
great benefit to many of the ofilcers.
They were good drill officers in their
own armories but knew little of tho du
ties required of them in tho field. Some
of the captains have had their men up
and in line at five o'clock in the morn
ing, and no point has been neglected to
give them all the benefit of instruction
that a camp off mis.
The chief interest of the Drill now
lies in that which nobody lias yot found
out,namely: how the various companies
stand in me competitive drill, and
which will get ihe $3,000 prize. The
announcement of the awards will be
made by the judges at three o'clock
this afternoon at tbe Drill grounds,
with due ceremony, and until this for
mal presentation no one but the judges
will know who are tbe winners. Gen
eral Sheridan selected tbe army ofiicers
who are the judges of the Drill and lie
will present the prizes to the successful
The State CunnotTmpnsc a Tax on the
tlross Receipts of u Steamshlp|Com
pany Derived from Transport
ing Passengers.
I WASHINGTON, May 27.—When tbe
I United States supreme court assembled
at noon to day there was a largo attend
ance of telephone people, including rep
resentatives ol interested pirlies in
Boston, New York and Philadelphia,
who anticipated a deciston in the tele
phone cases, Tiiey were ail, however,
disappointed, us no decision in those
cases was made. Judgements were
briefly announced in about forty cases,
the most important of which are as
follows : No. 202. The Philadelphia
and Southern Mail Steamship Compa
ny versus The Commonwealth of
Pennsylvania. In error to ihp supreme
court of that state. Tho decision in
this case whether tbe state can con
stitutionally impose upon a steamship
company incorporated under its laws a
tax upon tho gross receipts, derived
from the transportation of persons and
property by sea between diffiueut stat
es. and to and from forofjn r umtL->.
The court, in a long and careful opin
ion by Justice Bradley, decides that the
states cannot impose such tax, for the
reason that it would be regulation of
interstate commerce. This drcison,
so far as it relates to taxation of inter
state commerce carried on by corpora
tions, applies equally to domestic and
foreign corporations. The capital stock
of the former, regarded as iuhabitants
of a state or their property, may be
taxed as other corporations carrying on
foreign or interstate commerce, so as to
make the tax in effect a tax on such
commerce ; but their business as carri
ers in foreign or interstate commerce
cannot be taxed by a state under the
plea that they are exercising a fran
chise. The judgement of the supreme
court of Pennsylvania is reversed.
The court rendered decisions to-day
in about forty cases. Only a few of
the judgments announced are of public
interest. Tho petition for a hearing of
tbe Maxwell land grant case denied,
Tbe court adj tnrned for the term.

Chlcaso's (.rent Strike .
NEW YoitK, May 3 >.-The next six
days are liable to witness the critical
period in the great attike of the build
ing Hades. For four weeks strike Ims
followed strike, terminating In a lock
out affecting to a greater or less ex
tent almost eveiy trade in the city of
Chicago. Fully 17, (KG men are idle,
and it is stated upon good authority
that over 1,000 flist class niechahics
have left the city. A careful estimate
sliows that wages to tho amount of
$1)00,0)0 have tieen lost to the strikers,
it is impossible to estimate the amount
of capital which lias been diverted
from the building trades. Well known
eastern capitalists have instructed ttieir
Chicago agents to make no invest
ments pending tlie adjustment of the
sliike, and iu several logo entur
pnses w ill be dropped until next year,
and pet haps for ever. The master ma
sons realizing that so 1< ng us trades
unions were governed by their present
iaws and customs the strike was liable
to bo duplicated at anytime,resolved to
make a supreme effort to force the ab
olition of the abuses of which they
were conspicuous victims. The code
of principles and working rules adopt
ed would, if enforced, result in tiro
complete abolition of the unions as
now constituted. Tho developments
of last week have d- monntrated that
this is accomplished it must le dono
by the master masons. They formula
ted the plan of the campaign and have
asked the kindled trades to indorse
their code of principles and follow it:
their footsteps.

married woman to aeep house for him
and that she consented to do so pro

another family. Tills Showers agreed
to do. It is further allegid that at
