A High Recognitlon of the Pennsyl-
vania State College.
Pennsylvania has reason to be proud
of the reputation which her State Col-
lege has acquired, both in this country
and in Europe, as an institution of
learning, particularly in the line of
technical instruction. The advance:
ment of the State College to its present
eminence among the schools of the
country has taken place under its pres-
ent management, whose efforts have
also given it a European reputation. It
must be gratifying to the faculty to
receive such a recognition of the high
results of their work as was shown by
the action of the National Association
for the Promotion of Technical Educa:
tion in England, whose Secretary re-
cently wrote to Prof. ATHERTON ac-
knowleding that the courses ‘given in
the syllabus of the Pennsylvania State
College were regarded as the best for
the purpose of the English National
Association, and asking for a copy of
the 1888 report of the State College fo
their information and guidance.
A still higher recognition of the
merits of our State College was that
shown in Parliament where, in the
House of Commons, Sir R. Pacer
asked the President of the Committee
on Education whether it would be
proper to direct the Science and Art
Department, South Kensington, to
issue, for the use of such technical
schools as might require it, a series of
plates in the nature of those printed
in the annual report of the Pennsyl-
vania State College. which were said
to be “the best available illustrations
of the progressive series of exercises
for the course of the mechanic arts.”
Recognitions and admissions of the
superiority of our State College, coming
from such high sources, should stimu-
late both the people and government
of the State to give it liberal encour-
agement, so that it may advance to the
full measure of its usefulness in im-
parting instruction in technical knowl
edge and the mechanic arts.
——The exports of bread stuffs from
the United Statesin tbe last eleven
months were $30,000,000 less in value
than the exports of the corresponding
period of the preceding year. There
has been an obstruction of the import
trade by the tariff restrictions, and such
a thing cannot occur without attecting
the amount of the commodities we
send out of the country. The loss of
$30,000,000 in the value of exported
breadstuffs is largely the result of our
high tariff system. It is thus that the
McKinley policy is injuring the
The Bird Book Vetoed.
Among the pumerous bills
through which the Governor has jab.
bed his veto pen is the one which au-
thorized the printinglofadditional copies
of the celebrated Bird Book to the val-
ue of $33,000. This ornamental pub-
lication—more ornamental tha n useful
—had already cost the State $60,000.
The copies were mnch sought after by
people who fancied birds and liked to
tion was soon exhausted. With the ob-
ject of getting a new supply the bill
was passed, which the Governor coan-
sidered it his duty to veto. It is a pity
that every body can’t have one of those
highly ornamented volumes, but it is
not the business of the State to furnish
the people with picture books.

Hard to See the Relief.
Major McKINLEY has a queer way
of consoling the American tax-pay. In
a Decoration Day speech he tried to
comfort them with the statement that
whereas in 1869 we paid $130,000,000 .
annual interest on the public debt and
$28,000,000 for pensions these figures
have been so reversed that we now pay
$135,000,000 in pensions, and $27,000,
000 in interest. But as the money
comes out of the pockets of the people
in the shape of taxes, in what way can
the Major show that the people have
been relieved, since it appears that the
combined interest and pension expense
is greater to-day than it was in 1869?
Major McKiNLey should be re-
minded that when the pensions were
$28,000,000 a year an abler Republi
can and better statesman than he,
General GarrieLp, an old soldier, by
the way, predicted that the pension
appropriations would reach their maxi-
mum at $35,000,000, and thenceforth
steadily decline. The Gencial had uo
idea that they would be swollen to five
times the maximum he allowed ; but,
then, he had no conception of the ex-
tent to which his party would use the
pensions as a means of making Repub-
lican votes.
Tin-Plate Lies.
It is not safe to push the tin-plate
lie too far. It is likely to recoil on
the liar and bring him to shame, if. he
is capable of such a feeling as shame.
In illustration of this statement we
have the case of the New York Tribune,
which since the passage of the Me-
Kinley bill has been doing a good deal
of tin-plate lying. Last April, ridicul-
ing the charge that the high duties
would raise the price of tinware,
in its issue of the 24th of that month it
said :
Why, the McKinley bill was going to raise
the price of tin-plate! Don’t you remember
the free trade tears that were shed over the
“little tin pail of the laborer ?” And now to
learn that the American market in six months
time has been so far filled by American tin
plate as to compel the Welsh trust to shut
down to prevent a glut of the market !
Having been prodded namercifully
for this evident falsification, shame
compelled the Zribune last Wednesday
to make the following correction of its
misstatement on the tin plate ques
tion :
The Tribune will frankly say that in a short
paragraph in its editorial columns of April 24
a statement was made that the production of
tin plate in this country had been so large as
to compel the Welsh trust to shut down. That
assertion was a mistake and should never
have been made. No one regrets more than
the Tribune that an inaccurate item of that
kind should have been printed in its columns.
The tin-plate liar should be more

tration to hesitate about allowing Mr.

to appear before the committee inves-
tigating the Philadelphia bank failures,
The inference must be drawn, rather
damagingly to the administration, that
it has something to -conceal with re-
ference to its supervision of the nation-
al banks. It should make every effort
to have these institutions properly con-
ducted. so that the public should suffer
no injury through them, and when a
case occurs in which such injury has-
been done, an administration, if entire-
ly faultless in the matter, should has-
ten to give every assistance to rectify
the wrong and punish those who were
responsible for it. The Harrison ad-
ministration has not acted in this way
in the cases of the Keystone and
Spring Garden Banks. It has held
back as if it were reluctant about hav-
ing an investigation.
In this connection there is an intima-
tion that General A. B. Nerrreron,
Assistant Secretary of the Treasury,
had business relations with the Spring
Garden Bank that exercised an influ-
ence in the appointment of a receiver.
Altogether there are appearances in
connection with the Philadelphia bank
wrecks that do not look well for the
Harrison administration,
Politics in Massachusetts is cer-
tainly improving. The Legislature of
that State has passed a nonpartisan
congressional apportionment bill which
was signed by the Governor on Thurs-
day of last week. It provides for the
dividing of the State into districts with-
out reference to party advantage and |
with no other object than a fair repre- |
sentation of the people. The unfair
ness of the gerrymander originated in
Massachusetts, and is attributed to |
of his name. It would be historic jus-
tice if the first earnest effort to suppress
it should be made where it begau.

opposition to the President in the west, |
says Senator Worcorr, but he confess- |
es to be somewhat surprised to find it |
equally strong in the east. |
It is questionable whether the Sena-
tor takes a correct view of the antag-
onism of the Blaine element as against
the candidacy of the present incumbent.
Harrison is evidently master of the
situation. He bestrides his party
more masterfully than any previous
Republicans President. He apparently
has Brain cowed, the Premier exhib-
iting a tameness which is tar from in-
dicating a disposition to fight his chief
for the Presidential succession. This
may be caused by hisill health. He
may not fzel himself physically equal
to a contest for the Presidency.
The Illinois Legislature has al-
most unanimously endorsed a constitu-
tional amendment that would make

sity of making this change. Nowhere

expected that the President will vote it. |
There wil! be strength enough in the
House to pass it over the veto, but it is
doubtful whether it could be done in
the Senate. He also expressed the
opinion that very substantial modifi-
cations of the McKinley bill will pass
the House without any trouble, and
will very likely pass the Senate. He
added : “If the senate should pass a
bill of this sort I doubt if President
Harrison could veto it. There is a
sentiment in the country that would
condemn him in such action.”

Be the Largest and Greatest
Ever Known !
The Farmers’ Encampment at Mt.
Grewna will be held this year from Aug-
ust 16th to the 22nd, and from what
we already know, it promises to be one
of the largest and greatest exhibitions
and farmers’ gatherings ever before
convened in this country. Everybody
who attended last year's gathering at
| Mi. Gretna went away pleased, and
| those from other States,who had never

i lighted with the placeand its surround-

i space will be added to the already large
{ area devoted last year to the exhibi-
| tion of machinery, and it is confidently
| expected that it will all be occupied.
| Already inquistes -for exhibits are com-
ling in rapidly, and in addition to those
who were there last year, who will
greatly enlarge and improve their ex-
hibits, many new ones will be there.
Mt. Greina, in itself is a great at-
traction and has become the famous
picnic grounds of eastern Pennsylvania.
Daring the summer almost daily there
are large excursions and picnics at this
place, and its adaptation for the ac-
commodation of large crowds, is one
of its principle features. A hundred
thousand people do not crowd the vast
grounds. The State Encampment of
National Guardsmen is held here and
it has been pronounced by United
States Army officers, who with their
commands have encamped with our
State troops, to be the finest camp
ground in the country. For such a
gathering as the Farmers’ Encampment
no better place than Mt. Grea could
be found.
There will be some great speeches,
and interesting events in addition to the
great exhibition, that will form attrac.
tive features of the great encampment,
Among the prominent men who wi'l
be in attendance may be mentioned
Hon. Jeremiah Rusk, Secretary of

For Cleveland's Renomination.
According to the New York Press ba-
fore leaving for his summer vacation ex-
President Cleveland suggested that a
consultation be held, and to it he invited
not only those who were prominently
associated with him while he was presi-
dent, but one or two others who did not
sustain intimate relations with him then.
Among those who accepted the ex-presi-
dent’s invitation were Senator Gorman,
Senator-elect Vilas, Don M. Dickinson,
Senator Brice, William C. Whitney and
Colonel Daniel L. Lamont.
Mr. Cleveland was very frank with
the gentlemen and stated that he desired
to know first of all ‘whether it was their
opinion that the Democratic party wish-
ed to have him become its standard bear-
er again. If that was the wish he would
cheerfully acceed. He also wanted to
know whether the disaffection which
dicated any serious opposition. If that
were the case, he would not be a candi-
date. The situation was gone over very
thoroughly. The conference, which was
protracted until a late hour, and was in
fact renewed the next day, resuited in
this determination : Messrs. Gorman,
Dickinson, Vilas, Briceand J. J. Bell,
of Minnesota, agreed formally that they
would at once begin to canvass for the
renomination of Grover Cleveland.
Senator Vest was asked Saturday at
St. Louis : “How about the charge that
the Democratic senators are working
against Cleveland ?”
He answered : “It is false, and every
Democrat who repeats it is helping the
Republicans. Of course, the enemy
wants all the internal dissensions and
distrust in our ranks that are possible,
but the Democrat who falls into the
trap is not intelligent. There is some
feeling among Democratic senators as to
Cleveland’s silver letter, but in my
opinion our ticket will be Cleveland and
Gray, and the Republicans will nomi-
nate Harrison and Morton."

is the quickest thing to regulate the

those who have confidence in that
method of treatment. The following
from a Lock Haven paper relates to
these alleged medical miracles: “Oar
friend, Johnny McDonald, of the Cus-
ter House, who went out to Allegheny
on Friday to consult Father Mollinger,
returned home on Tuesday, having
been unable to see the disease-curing
priest at all. tle states that there are
apparently 15,000 people there camped
in tents in the fields and wherever they
can find a place, and that it is a wonder-
ful sight. The craze and excitement are
so great that he found it impossible to
get near the good priest, nor could he
by any effort find out the name of the
druggist who puts'up his prescriptions.

A BorLp FoRGER.--A very bold and
persistent attempt to do business with a
forged check was done in this place last
Monday by a person who represented
himself to be an employe at the nail
works. He bought a $40 gold
watch and chain at Richards’ jewelry
store, giving in payment a check for
$25 and his due bill tor the
balance. The check was on the Centre
County Bank, signed ¢John G. Phil-
ips,” and endorsed,” L. M. Munson.”
It was pronounced a forgery when tak-
en to the Bank by Mr. Richards, who
immediately hunted up the man from
whom he got it,found him in the street,
demanded and got back his watch, and
handed the check back to him. The
mistake was made in not arresting him
at that very moment. He afterwards
went to the clothing store of Simon
Loeb and wanted to buy asuitof clothes
for $12, off2ring the same check and
asking in change the difference between
the price of the suit and the amount of
the check. Mr. Loeb’s suspicions were
aroused and he pretended that he had to
go to bank to get change, but his pur-
| pose was to have the check examined.
The man objected to this, saying that
he would call next week for the change.
But Mr. Loeb started for the Bank and
