The House of Representatives has done well in passing, by the necessary two thirds vote, the Tucker resolution for an amendment of the constitution that will require that United States Senators shall be elected by the direct vote of the people. In taking this ac- tion the House has responded to the popular sentiment which regards with serious apprehension the senatorial de- generacy that is largely due to defects in the existing methods of electing United States Senators by the State Legislatures. It is seen that the char- acter of the Senate has greatly de- teriorated ; that the material of which it is composed has grown to be of an inferior quality, presentinga humilia- ting contrast to what it was before it it became the custom to secure seats in that body either by manipula. ting State Legislatures through boss influence, or effecting the same purpose by the corrupt use of money. These means of attaining the senatorial posi- tions have been adopted in many of the states, with the effect of filling the Senate chamber with party bosses of the Quay description, and millionaires, . who have used their money to pur- chase the distinction of being Senatore- This vicious practice has not yet de- graded senatorial elections in the Southern states, but in most of the Northern state Legislatures the sena- torial toga is for sale. The necessary consequence is a marked decline in the quality of the membership of the upper branch of Congress which began when old Simon CameroN bought his way into that body by corrupting the votes of Wae- ENSELLER, MENEAR and Leo. He has the ignoble distinction of introduc- ing the practice of making the Senator- ship a purchasable article, a practice which has since contributed so largely to the prevailing senatorial demoraliza- tion. The debasing example he set has been followed in other states until a large percentage of the members of the Senate are men of inferior ability but of superior wealth, who occupy their seats for no other reason than that they had the mouey to buy them. For awhile this demoralizing prac- tice was coufined to the Republican party, with which it originated, but the Democrats ot Ohio made a bad break when their Legislature, setting aside such Democrats as ALLEN G. THUR- MAN, and others of unquestioned ability and integrity, allowed itself to be influenced into electing as one of Ohio's representatives in the Senate, a New York stock-jobber and railroad manipulator whose only claim to dis- tinction was the wealth he had gained in Wall street, and whose money-mak- ing instinct led him into an attempt to betray his party by the money that might be made out of a dicker with the truste, The Democratic Legislatures ot New York and New Jersey, also succumbed to the seductive millionaire influence, and the Democratic party has suffered for it in the Senate. Brice, Smite and MurpHY are instru- ments of retributive punishment to the Democrats for their having contributed to the demoralization which hasseparated the Senate from popular interests and sympathy, and made it the stronghold of favored wealth and protected greed. If they serve no better purpose, the three Democratic millionaires in the Senate, who have tried to block the progress of tariff reform, may be of use to the Democrats in warning them of the danger of making the senatorial position a prize to be gained by the money of wealthy aspirants, and in- spiring them with the determination to bring about a change of the constitu- iton that will put the election of United States Senators in the hands of the people. —1Is there a probability of the Chi- nese adopting the Dowg bullet proof coat ? The Governor Foolishly Censured. At the time when President CLEVE- LAND ordered troops into some of the states to enforce the law that was being violated by riotous railroad strikers, the New York Herald sent in- terrogatory circulars to the different State Governors asking them to de- clare their attitude on the right of the President to exercise such executive authority. We are not aware of the number of Governors who responded to this rath- er meddlesome interrogatory, the ob- vious purpose of which was to add to the journalistic reputation of the paper by a parade of gubernatorial replies to its conundrum. In the case of Gov- ernor ParmisoN that official did not think it necessary that there should be a newepaper display of his attitude on the question of the President’s action, and therefore he made no reply. The public service did not require that he should encourage such intrusive news- paper enterprise. There was nothing in his previous official conduct that called for his rushing into print to as- sure the public that he was for law and order, he having by his past course in time of riotous disturbance already given the public that assur- ance. His failure to respond to the meddlesome inquiry was an assertion of his good sense and self-respect ; but there are some Republican newspapers that are trying to give a very sinister appearance to the Governor's omis- sion to make a printed parade of his ap- proval of the President’s action. Among them is the mischievous Philadelphia Press which would like to put a con- struction upon this incident that would make our governor appear to be some- thing of a Pennsylvania ALTGELD. Governor ParTison’s attitude on oc- casions requiring the maintenance of law and order has been sufficiently evinced in the past by the exertion of his executive authority for the sup- pression of riotous and unlawful demon- strations. Ex-Senator EpMuNDs never had the reputation of being a joker when he was in public life, but since he has retired to a private station, he seems to be developing a facetious vein. As a joke nothing could be better than the remark he recently made on the subject of electing United States Sena- tors by popular vote. He said that the election of Senators in that way would be “likely to reduce the quality of the body.” Itis expected that the laugh should come in after every joke, and in this case the laugh is pro- voked by the facetious idea that the Senate is more likely to be reduced by members getting into it through the votes of the people than through the influence of money exerted upon pur- chasable State Legislatures. McKinley's Delusion. McKixLeY ig of the opinion that ‘the people in this country never wanted to vote as badly as they do now.” This he is represented to have said at a reception in Cleveland given by a Republican club, at which he was booming his presidential candida- cy. However badly they may want to vote at this time, McKINLEY will find them two years hence equally anxious to cast their ballots, but notin the way he thinks they want to cast them now. Two years experience of a Democratic tariff policy will have ful- ly convinced them of the fraudulent pretensions of those who have support- ed a high tariff for its alleged benefit to the country, and if a high tariff party shall have a ticket in the field at that time, which is questionable, the people will want to snow it under. It will take but a very brief time to disabuse McKINLEY of the impression that the next President is going to be a high protectionist. He is wasting his time and preparing a bitter disap- pointment for himselt by working a high tariff presidential boom. ——The Republicans have been hold ing conventions in a number of states during several weeks past and it is ob- served that in not a single instance did they imitate the $40 per capita demand of the Pennsylvania Republican plat- form. There is a similarity of clatter in all of them, but the Pennsylvania platform is the only one in which the wildcat asserts itself on the currency question. Forty dollars a head is a tempting bait for the unwary in a campaign, but the Republicans outside of Pennsylvania are shy of using it in their political trap. It is to be seen what sort of a catch Hastings will make with it. Wheat, 50 Cents a Bushel, HARRISBURG, July 31.— Wheat, new and old, is now the same price—50 cents a bushel.

Another Battle in Which Japs Destroy a War. ship and Two Cruisers.— Most Decisive.—The Mikado’s Sailors, as Usual, Proved Better Fighters.—A Thousand Men Perished. Suancaal, July 31.—News have been received of a desperate battle be- tween fleets of China and Japan, in which the Chinese were defeated, and the Chén-Yuen, the largest Chinese battle ship but one, was sunk, and two other large Chinese cruisers were cap- tured and destroyed. The battle was hotly contested, but the Japanese handled their arms with more skill than the Chinese. The news of the battle came here by private telegrams from Tien Tsin, If the report is true, of which there is little doubt, it means than an end has been put to China's fighting upon the geas. The Chen-Yuen must have started out from Taku after leaving the Chinese transports there. The Chinese fleet carried nearly 1,000 men, and few, if any, of the Chi- nese engaged escaped. Two German officers, in command of the Chen-Yuen are reported to have met death with the crew of that.vessel. The Chen-Yuen was a battle ship of 7,400 tons, carrying 14 1.2 inches compound armor at the water line. Her battery included four 12-inch guns, protected by an armored breast- work and two smaller Krupps. She had 11 Hotchkiss cannons and tubes for Whitehead torpedoes. In addition the Chen-Yuen had two 8 1-4 inch and 6-inch Krupps in her main battery, and a secondary battery of Hotchkiss revolving cannon. The Chen-Yuen was built for China at the Stettin, works. She was a sister ship of the Ling-Yuen, and was the most power- ful warship in the Chinese navy with the exception of the Ting-Yuen. The two Chinese cruisers supposed to have baen captured or destroyed dur- ing the engagement which ended so fatally for the Chen Yuen are the Chin Yuan and the Foo Ching. The Chin Yuan was a protected cruiser, built at Elswick, England; she had a dis- placement of 2,300 tons, and attained an average speedjin her trial trips, with all weights, batteries and crew aboard, of 184 knots. Her armament cousist- ed of three 8} inch Krupps aod two 6 inch Armstrongs, protected by splinter proof shields. She also carried eight 8-pounder rapid fire Hotchkiss guns, six Gatlings and four torpedo tubes. The Foo Ching, was also an English built protected cruiser, very much simi- lar to the Chin Yuan. She had a dis- placement of 2,500 tons, was built of steel, in 1890, and carried 10 guns of about the same caliber as those carried by the Chin Yuan. Uncivilized Warfare. The Chinese Complain of the Way the Japanese Are Fighting. SHANGHAT, July 80.—The following is the latest Chinese version of the sink- ing of the troop ship Kow Shung,chart- ered by China from the China mer- chants trading and steamship company}: When the Kow Shung was overhaul- ed by the Japanese cruiser, the latter sent a boat alongside the transport, with a prize crew to convey her to Japan. The Japanese boarded the Kow Shung and ordered ber commander, Captain Galsworthy, an Englishman, to proceed to Japan. He refused. The Japanese then opened fire upon the transport, using machine guns. This fire soon cleared the Kow Shung’s decks. The cruiser then discharged two torpedoes at the transport, sinking her and drowning nearly 2,000 on board. Colonel Von Hann, a German, for- merly the viceroy’s aide-de-camp, and other foreign officers were among those killed by the firing. The effect of the torpedoes is said to have been terrific. Gaping holes were torn in the steamer’s side, and through these the water poured, drowning be- tween decks those who did not leap over- board. According to the reports two German passengers, on their way to Corea, jump- ed overboard when the transport began to sink, and succeeded in swimming to the Japanese cruiser. In spite of their announcement that they were non-com- batants, they were shot by Japanese marines. A number of Chinese who swam to the cruiser shared the same fate. The Japanese refused to quarter them. A French warship the Lion, steamed up as the transportsank, and succeeded in rescuing some of the Chinese, but all foreigners are reported to have been kill- ed on board the Kow Shung, while re- turning the fire of the Japanese, or else were drowned. The Japanese are said to bave behaved with an utter disregard of the laws of civilized war. To the Atlantic Coast and Return at #8.65 the Round Trip.

A Diplomat Thinks the Sinking of the Kow Shung a Grave Error.—Under the British Flag.— The Mikado’s Government Had to do Something Vigorous.—Latest News of th Battle. ‘WasHINGTON, July 30.—It is the opinion of diplomats here that the Jap- anese have made a grave error in sink- ing the transport Kow Shung, and one which is likely to cost them much mon- ey in reparation,besides the humiliation of an apology. The Kow Shung was of a line of coasting steamers belonging to Hugh Mathieson & Co., and trading between Chinese ports. The vessel was under the British flag when she was sunk. Although she carried Chinese troops to Cores, it is said here that she did not in so doing violate the law of neutrality, for there had been no decla- ration of war or open acknowledgment by either China or Japan that a state of war prevails. The vessel, therefore, was engaged in legitimate traffic, and the Japanese are likely to pay dearly for sinking her and destroying the lives of the ship’s company. An interesting explanation of the pres- ent attitude of Japan toward China was furnished by a diplomat of much ex- perience in Asiatic affairs. He first pointed out the fact that internal con- ditions in Japan are and have been for some time very much disturbed. There has been great friction between the mikado and his cabinet on the one side and the parliament and people on the other. This steadily increased until the parhament actually passed a resolution requesting the mikado to remove his cabinet and replace it by men more near- ly in accord with their ideas, which are marked by resentment of the presence of foreigners in Japan and the extension of modern civilizing systems. The emperor’sanswer came quick and stiarp in a decree proroguing parliament. This added to the feeling of dissatisfac- tion, and the government ‘became alarmed, Tha date of election of the new parliament began to draw near, and some heroic measure was neccessary to prevent an overwhelming defeat, the result of which might be to turn Japan backward in the march toward civil- izatissi, and perhaps overthrow the em- perar himself. The Japanese relations with Corea growing out of the obstacles to trade with that country, with its limitations upon the fisheries and upon the number of ports open to Japanese trade, were in a very unsatisfactory state, and this, with the state of domestic affairs, led the Jap- anese government to adopt very vigor- ous foreign policies, in which it is quite sure of popular support.

THE WEDDING Dip CoME OFF.-- The wedding of Mr. Cal. Temple and Miss Mattie Minnemyer, of Milesburg, which was to have been solemnized last Thursday, did not take place because when the appointed day came the groom failed to materialize. This circumstance gave ground for the rumor that the groom, prospective, had fled for parts un- known, but to the chagrin of the gossips of thattown he turned up next day. He had been unavoidably detained in Pittsburg. The wedding took place on Su nday. A NEw SwiNDLE.—There is a chap going about working 8 clever swindle. He calls at a residence and represents that he is repairing clothes-wringers. If the housekeeper gives him a job he asks permission to take the wringer to the nearest blacksmith shop. At the shop he gets permission to use the tools and in afew minutes has the wringer in pieces. He selects those parts which are good and carries them off. The housekeeper never sees her wringer again. The swindler steals enough parts to construct wringers which look like new. These hesells and gets full price. Look out for him. A DisTrEssiNG AccipENT.—The horses hitched to Reuben Crust’s self binding harvester frightened while ag work in an oats field on the Crust farm, near Fillmore, on Monday, and ran away. A young son of Mr. Crust was riding one of the lead horses at the time and he was thrown to the ground, the heavy machine passing over him. The boy suffered most frightful in- juries. His one leg was broken, his left hand cut clean off, the flesh torn from the arm and he received internal injuries as well. His recovery is doubtful and even should the unfortunate lad recover he will bea cripple for life.

He Lost His Heap.—On Monday Pardee mines, near Philipsburg, started up at the 40ct rate under the protection of deputies. Among the officers pro- tecting the workmen was James Meyers, who was discharged from court here some time ago under suspended sentence for robbery. During the day a Mrs. Jennie Jones, the wife of a striking miner, taunted him and he became so provoked that he shot her in the left shoulder. The man immediately gave himself up ard was hurried oft to Clear- field to jail, for the frenzy of the miners, when they heard of the shooting, might have been satiated only with a lynch- ing. The bullet was removed from the victim and she will recover. Mirn HALL Is THANKFUL.—Dear Sir :—In recognition of the assistance rendered the people of Mill Hall, Pa., during the terrible conflagration of July 13th, 1894, when the greater portion of the business part of the town was de- stroyed, the town council at its first meeting thereafter adopted, by a unani- mous vote of that body, the following resolution and preamble. ‘WHEREAS, Our village has been visited by a most destructive fire, caus- ing great loss of property and greatly impoverishing many of our people, and WaEREAS, The prompt and efficient efforts of the Lock Haven and Belle- fonte fire departments greatly lessened and subdued the devouring flames, be it Resolved, By the Town Council of the borough of Mill Hall, that the thanks of this body and the people of Mill Hall are due to his honor, the Mayor of the City of Lock Haven, the Chief Burgess of Bellefonte, the fire de- partments of the two municipalities and to Hon. J. W. Gephart for their prompt generous atd efficient services in re- sponding to the call of their sister muni- cipality for assistance ; without whose assistance & much greater loss would have been sustained.

The afternoon train reaches Mill Hall in time to connect with the Beech Creek train west to Snow Shoe, Philipsburg and Clearfield and the Penn’a. R. R. train east to Lock Haven, Jersey Shore and Wil- liamsport. This new arrangement will be especially convenient to the travel- ling public residing along the line of the Central railroad. Foster PREDICTS EARTHQUAKES FOR AUGUsT.—My last bulletin gave forcasts of the storm wave to cross the continent from July 26 to Aug. 2, and the next will reach the Pacific coast about Aug, 3 cross the western moun- tain by close of 4th, the great central valley from 5th to 7th and the eastern states about the 8th. This disturbance will beat its greatest force west of the Mississippi about the 4th and 5th. Rainfall will be deficient in a few limit- ed localities. This will also be an earth- quake period. It will be noted that the great earthquakes at Constantinople, July 9 to 13, occurred very near the predicted dates, From July 31to Aug. 6 will probably bring as great earth- quakes as did the July disturbance. The warm wave will cross the western mountains about Aug!3 the great cen tral valleys about the 5th and the east. ern states about the 7th. The cool wave will cross the western mountains about the 6th, the great central valleys about the 8th and the eastern states about the 10th. August will bring spots of drought in many places and corn and cotton will be injured to some extent. The drought will not be general, but taking the whole of the United States and Canada, the month will average warmer and dryer than usual. | the chapter and his He TrouverT IT OUT IN BED.—One of the most valuable inventious which the late Bernard Lauth, of Howard, made, was thought out while in bed on a rail-road car, during a night journey from Paris to Stradsburg. The Philadelphia Record tells of it as follows : : “When he made his invention of cold rolled shafting be experimented a great deal on thin sheet iron, and was anxious to reach some method by which he could secure a reduction in the thickness of thin sheets and a finer fin- ish for their surface. He knew that he could do this if he could use rolls with a small diameter, but as he attempted to reduce the rolls they would spring and break. One night he and his oldest son, Mr. B. C. Lauth, were traveling from Paris to Stradsburg, when the thought occurred to him that he could place a small roll between two large rolls and get the effect of the small roll and prevent its breaking by the support of the larger rolls. This was the end of son received a thump and, on a shake toawake him, he was informed that he ‘had it,” ‘Have what?’ asked the son. “Why, I can roll single sheets and put a face on them like a looking glass ; that’s what I want for Russia sheet iron.” He then ex- plained his invention in detail. A short time afterwards he went to the works of M. DeWendel, at Hy- range, near Metz, and explained his new mode, and suggested to M. De- ‘Wendel that it would be a great im- provement for cold rolling tinplate. That gentleman said that he would sub- mit the plan to his engineers, which he did, and after a thorough investigation by five of them it was pronounced im- practicable. They claimed that the small roll would break. This was a little more than Bernard Lauth could stand, and he said some hard words and begged to differ from them, stating that, with all due appreciation of their very learned technical knowledge, he was sorry to say that they did not know anything about rolling. He then turn- ed to M. DeWendel and said : “I will build this mill at my own expense if you will pay mae a certain sum of mon- ey if it accomplishes what I claim,” This offer was accepted, and the mill was started and did more than was claimed for it.” Marriage.

The heated spell still continues, rain is needed. Corn and potatoes are suffering from the dryness. Harvesting is about done excepting the oats which is badly blighted with rust, it isa late and a light crop although a large “acreage was sown. The steam thresher is heard in all direc. tions and the yield is short in many cases it istaking 2 and 3 dozen sheaves for a bushel of quite an inferior grade. The cause is attributed to the frost. The recent heated spell brought death to a number of animals. Last week Har- vey Bowersox lost a valuable mare from cerebrae sclerosis. Dan’l Dreiblebis lost a young gelding from cerebritis from which a number of other horses are af. fected. D. IL. Johnson lost a young horse from anattack of azoturia and a cow from tympanites and one from the lodgement. of an apple in the pharynx. T. H. Decker is the looser of a #75 Jersey cow from fever. At noon on the 28th inst. a messenger came to announce to relatives here, the death of Mrs. Sarah Humell, of Lillieville, Miffiin county. She was the widow of John Humell and a sister of W. J. and Fred Meyers of this town and D. W. and Wes. Meyers, of Boalsburg. She leaves one girl 14 years old who will be cared for at the Orphan's School. Mrs. Humell was a landlady who was widely known for her kindly disposition and she had been at- tending to her usual duties after eating a hearty supper when she was compelled to git down on the lounge and immediately fell over dead from heart failure and dropsy. She lad been complaining for the past year but no thought was enter- tained that her death was so near. She: was 48 years 10 months and 14 days old and was buried at Lillieville cemetery on Sunday a. m. at 8o’clock on account of the extreme heat. Many of her friends. failed to reach the house of mourning in time to take a last 100k at one everyhody so much loved, but the memory of her kind deeds will long live in the mind of the many to whom she was good.
