harping so constantly on tlio cost of
tlio extra session not only loso sight of
the fact that tho cost was mailo hy tlio
f 1 r- .t , , . .
rtmuai oi mo republican scnato to leg
islate, but thoy also forget that in
1881 a republican legislature wasted
$200,000 of tho 8tatoV8 money in a
factious fight over tho election of a
United States Simator.
The Legislature adjourned last Fri
day at noon. Crawford of Philadel
phia returned his full pay to tho slate,
$1870,00, and quite a number of mem
bora returned $110 each, boing tho
pay for tho eleven days' adjournment
at tho beginning of the extra session.
Speaker Faunce being ono of tho num
ber. In tho Senate, Coxe, Gordon and
Emery returned their full pay.
It is believed that tho present session
of Congress will be brief. There is
nothing of importance that requires a
protracted session. Somo of tho timo
will bo occupied in correcting somu of
tho incongruities and inequalities of
tho tariff bill, passed at last session, in
whioh all parties will agree. The Ilar
risbnrg Patriot says :
There is, however, plenty of work
to do in ono direction, and that is in
the matter of inquiring into abuses and
irregularities in tho publio service. It
is intimated that tho manner of Stan
loy Matthews' appointment to tho su
premo court bench will bo mado tho
subject of inquiry. Tho manner in
which "Brewster, attorney general,"
has been conducting the affairs of his
department likowiso invites a search
ing inquiry while tho allegation that
George Bliss has been indulging in
crooked practices whilo a special at
torney of tho United States is also put
down for investigation. It is not ouly
proper but important that theso sever
al investigations should bo made, but
it does not follow that tho session
should bo protracted on account of
Washington, Doc. 11. Tho num
ber of bills introduced in the houso to
day oxceedi'd by 200 tho number pre
sented yesterday. Bills of.a private
character predominated and of theso
two-thirds wcro pension bills. Of tho
more important publio measures fully
one-half were old, and ono of tho pen
sion bills has been introduced in every
cougress sinco 18."2. A very consi
derable number of bills were introduced
which, whilo they varied somewhat in
.form, were identical in purpose, and
several representatives from different
states introduced precisely the same
bill, a3 a measure which had originally
been presented to the Forty-seventli
congress. There were to-day fivo bills'
to provide a uniform system of bank
ruptcy, threo or four to prevent the
spread of contagious diseases among
cattle, two or threo for the abolition of
tho internal revenue bureau, and a num
ber for tho reduction of postage and
tho withdrawal from circulation of the
trade dollar. There were also a num
ber of tariff bills, somo increasing and
some lowering the duties on articles
The Trade Dollar.
i'ho trade dollar was coined for tho
purpose of trallio in countries where
Bilver passed at its value as ascertained
by its weight and finances. It never
had a legal tender quality. Largo
numbers of these coins entered, how
ever, into tho volume of our currency.
By common consent their circulation
in domestic trade has now ceased, and
theyhavo thus beeomo a disturbing
element. Thoy should not bo longer
permitted to embarass our currency
system. I recommend that provision
bo mado for their reception by tho
treasury and mints, (as bullion) at a
small percentage abovo tho current
market prico of silver ot liko fineness.
The Tariff Issue.
WHAT GENERAL S1CCMCM.AN THINKS
Tho New York Herald of last Mon
day published an interview with GLu.
George B. McClellan.
"I have come," said tho reporter, "to
ask your opinion on tariff reform as an
issuo in tlio next presidential elec
tion." "There aro many men, answered tho
general, "who can give you a better
answer than I can. Having for my
part long since renounced all active
participation in politics, I do not wish
by any published statement to create
tho impression that I am speaking any
thing but my individual opinion, as
any citizen may at a crisis like tho pre
sent. The man who is in a position to
read tho signs of tho times to-day must
see, if ho is not blind, that fiscal ques
tions nro tho real questions of tho day,
and all others must givo way before
"Do you think tho democrats will
have the courage to mako a square is
suo on the tariff!"
"Yes, I do," said General McClellan,
with earnestness. "Tho timo was, not
many months ago, when it would havo
cost any congressman hw re election to
havo spoken favorably of free trado.
To-day, while free trado is not thought
of by any politician as of immcdiato
application, there aro many members
who preach its doctrines as an ultimate
ly good thing for tho United States
ana many more wno aro gaining po
litical strength by fighting for a low
"In this connection I may quoto to
you what a prominent member ot con
cress from Illinois told mo last Bprincr,
Ho said that not only in Illinois, but
further northwest and went, in the last
election tho winning men in both tho
democratic and republican parlies were
thoso who preached low tariff. Theso
nlono met with sympathy from tho poo
plo. And that sympathy I believe is
"Where will tho strength of the low
tariff party lio 1"
"Mainly in tho west. It is there
that tho light will be fought, and it is
there that wo shall leurn shortly wheth
er wo nro to remain in existence as n
democratic- party, will all our excel
lent tradition?, or whether wo nro to
bo forever wiped out of existuico
through our own cowaidieo in falling
to meet thin issue. It is an inovitablo
one, and will givo tho victory to any
net of men that will take it up."

Tact, tusto nnd thu solving of problems
In (Innnco nro all necessary In tho making
ot Christmas presents. In ton days Christ
mas will bo here. It tho presents aro of
home manufnetnre they are well underway
by llils time : If they nro to bo purchased It
Is well not to delay tho shopping until tho
Inst moment. Christmas presents can of
ten bo bought to tho best advantage Imme
diately after tho holiday season. It Is too
into to prnctlce that form of economy In
buying presents for the coming Christmas,
but tho suggestion may. effect a saving In
tho distribution of next year's presents.
It Is not necessary to enumerate- tho ad
vantages of making Christmas purchnscs nt
leisure. Any ono who has chased about
from shop to shop on the dny before
Christmas nnd squandered his money In
tho making of n collection of inappropriate
presents, because he Una not tho tune to
choose suitable ones, does not need to be
told of Iho folly of such delay, nud of his
own accord will begin curly next year to
pick up articles hero nnd thero that fit In
nently with untntcinlonnl hints dropped In
tho conversation of his friends. It is its
appropriateness which gives the chief vnluo
to a Christmas present, nnd It Is because of
the appropriateness of tho gifts that articles
In tho manufacture of which time, care nnd
labor hnvo been expended cause more
pleasure to tho recipients than tho uncon
sidered bauble which Is given as It is re
ceived, without thought and without grati
tude. Tho purchased gift can express as much
ns the ono conceived nnd made nt home
with infinite pains, provided the necessary
forethought bo exercised in the making of
the purchase. Tho Christmas season is
ono for tho practice of liberality nnd gener
osity. It is well to stint yourself that you
may give, but If the giving is felt to bo a
burden it Is hotter not to give. Do not
give for form's sake. Bo sure that you
want to give before you give, but no not
run into debt or involve others in your sac
rifice. There may be nn abuse of even tho
beautiful Christmas custom. Do what you
can to keep the Christmas giving above tho
cold, perfunctory habit which too of
ten prevails in the making of birthday or
wedding presents. Phila. Press.

Tlio Legislature recently passed n law
for tho suppression of Hint perambulating

tract tho following provisions from the
Section 1 provides that any person going
from placo to place begging nnd acquiring
money nnd n living, nnd having no fixed
phico of residence in tho county or city In
which he shall bo arrested, shall bo deemed
a tramp, nnd on conviction shnll bo sen
tenced to a prison for a period not exceed
Ing twelve months.
Section 2 provides that any trnmp en
tering a dwelling houso without tho per
mission of the occupant, or shall kindle
any flro in tho highway, or on tho land of
another without the owner's consent, or
shall bo found to bo carrying dangerous
weapons nnd firearms, nnd shall on being
tried by n jury be found guilty of unlawful
practices as aforesaid, shall bo sentenced
to prison at hard labor for n period not ex
ceeding threo years.
Section 3 provides that nny net of beg
ging or vagrancy ns described shnll bo

same Is n trnmp.
Section 4 provides that any person may
apprehend a tramp and take him before a
justice of tho peace or nldcrmnn, whose
duty It shall be nftcr hearing the evidence,
to discharge or commit the prisoner for
trial, ns in other cases of misdemeanors.
Section 5 provides that the act shall not
apply to nny femalo or minor under six-
teen years of age, nor to nny blind, denf or
du :ib person, nor to any crippled person
unable to perform manual labor.
