Tho Judges on Printing and Print
iug Material of tho World's Industrial
Exposition at New Orleans haro award
ed tho only two first premiums (gold
medals) for printing presses to Messrs.
C. B. Cottrcll & Sons, of Now York.
Ono of these premiums was on their

James II. Hotter, President of tho
Now York Central railroad, died at his

Tho governor's message, vetoing tho
Congressional apportionment bill camo
before tho legislature, last week. Tho
Senate passed tho bill over the veto,
Senator Hart of this district and three
other democrats voting with tho repub
licans, liio bill failed in tho House,
however, and the district remains un
changed. Tho new bill put Columbia
with Northumberland, Lycoming and
Montour, and would have been prefer
ablo to tho prcsont ungainly district
that reaches way up to tho northeast
corner of tho state. Thcro wcro some
objectionable features in tho apportion
ment as a whole, that led the house to
defeat it
Public sentiment will sustain the
Postmaster General in his refusal to
assign tho $100,000 subsidy voted by
tho last Congress to bo distributed to
American steamship lines for carrying
tho mails. Its distribution was left
discretionary with him,although it was
tho evident intention of Congress that
tho Pacific Mail Steamship Company
should b3 tho. gainer. But so many
claims were advanced that the sum
would have been a mere bagatelle if
distributed among all the claimants.
Besides the subsidy principle is dis
tasteful to tho American people,- who
will commend this tational exercise of
discretion on the part of tbe Postmas
ter General, as well i as tho saving of
$400,000 which would have boen no
better than thrown away.
Dregs of the Orime of 1876.
Tho electoral burglary of 1876-7 is
now and .then recalled to the nation,
by tho retributive blows which fall
upon tho criminal dependents of that
monstrous villainy.
Last Saturday camo tho announce
ment that Thomas C. Anderson, one .of
the members of tho Returning Board,
of Louisiana in 187G, and for whom a
petty placo was provided in tho New
Orleans Custom House, was dropped
from tho list of officials and his place
abolished ; and that C. C. Antoine,col
otcd Lieutenant Governor under Kel
logg and a participant iu tho fraud, was
dropped in like manner and his office
abolished. Tho news of the samo day
also announced tho death of L. G.
Dennis, tho chief manipulator of tho
Florida fraud of 187G. He bad been
convicted of tho crime but escaped by
a technicality, only to live an outcast
and dio of delirium tremens.
There are two men in Ohio who
should read these records with inter
est. They arc Rutherford B. Hayes,
who secured the Btolen Presidential
title, and John Sherman, who aided in
the theft and accepted a Cabinet port
folio to his reward. Sherman has some
what outlived the stain by his less pre-
tcntious political morality and his ac
tive and creditable efforts to givo the
country a sound financial system ; but
who recalls the name of Rutherford
B. Hayes with respect T lhila.
The Employes' Salary Bill.
Tho employes of tho Legislature, tho
appropriation ior whoso pay was pass
ed over the Governor's veto, aro great
ly inccuscd because tho Attorney-Gen'
oral has warned the Auditor-General
against auditing tho accounts and tho
Statu Treasurer against .paying what
seems to him excessive salaries. There
is really no ground for resentment on
this scoro. The Atloriiey-General is
simply following what ho considered
to lo the lino of duly in the matter,
no one ought to complain of that.
Tho determination of tho claimants
to tost tho legality of tho appropria
lion in the courts is nevertheless leoiti
inato and proper. If they are entitled

In the cause which will by this legal
procoduro bo determined by the court,
tho lay mind will naturally incline to
tho opinion that tho claimants have tho
best of it. Tho Altomcy.General relies
upon tho provisions ot tho act of 1874
to KiiDDort him. But it is not clear how
ho will inttoduco tho provisions of that
net into tho cause. Tito issue is simply
as to tho power of the Legislature to
appropriate money for any purpose. If

Illegal Trafflo hi Whiskey.
stumps that AnsoniiKi) T1IK rtAH.WAt
IIiiNTiNOTOK.Pa., Juno 17.-An exten
sive illegal trado in whiskey,demoraliz-
ing the laborers,dclaying worK,and caus
ing great loss to tho contractors, has
been carried on along tho lino of tho
South Pennsylvania or Vandcrbullt
Railroad in Bedford, Fulton, and
Somerset counties, and tho United
States authorities, under directions of
tho Secretary of tho Treasury, havo de
termined to break it up. Eleven per
sons charged with Felling tho liquor
have been lodged in Bedford jail.
Two of three, Fletcher G. Lunt and
David Ruby, both of this county, es
caped after being imprisoned, and three
others, Frederick and Hermann Kasc-
fong, father and son, and l'atrick
McNeil, havo not yet had a hearing1.
Tho other six bavo been committed by
United states Commissioner oingen-
fcltcn to jail in Pittsburg; to await
trial at tho next term of United States
District Court in Erie.
Peculiar methods wcro used in carry
ing on this business. Somo of those
engaged in it openly peddled tho liquor
among tho men, but tho moro nsual
way was for those wanting it to placo
their bottles and money on a stump,
and thcu go off a short distance out of
sight. On returning they would find
the bottle filled and the raonoy gone.
Thcro aro stumps all along tho lino
that mysteriously Bwallow tho coin and
poured out whiskey. At other places
shanties ono and a half or two stories
high, wero built. The lower story was
open to tho public and tho nppcr ono
was occupied by tho proprietor, who
was unseen by and inaccessiblo to thoso
below. Through a hole in tho wall a
small clovator, or dumb waiter, could
bo reached, on which tho money and
bottlo would be placod. Tho customer
would then put bis month to the bole
and halloa i "Moses'' to tho man above,
when the dumb waiter 'would ascend,
and soon return with tho bottlo filled.
It has not boen ascertained where the
liquor is obtained by theso retailers,
but it is believed thcro is a moonshine
distillery somewhere in tho mountains
near tho road. Search has been made
for it, but it has not been found.
The Work of the Session.

Qo-as-You-Please Marriages Halted,
The go-as-you plcaso marriago sys
tem that has dono so' much to impair
sanctity of the marriage relation in
Pennsylvania, and that has becomo a
consplcious reproach upon our State,
has been wisely halted by tho lato'Leg
islatnrc. The elopement of mihors, tho
clandestine marrriago mockeries of
adventurers, and tho vocation of tho
libertino who deludes tho unsuspect
ing by professed privalo contract mar
riages, will all be brought to a sudden
and peremptory standstill by tho new
marriago law that takes effect on tho
1st of October next
On and after the 1st day of next
October, as the new law declares, "no
person shall bo joined in marriago un
til a license shall havo been obtained
for that purpose, from tho olerk of tho
Orphans Court' in the county whero
tho marriage is performed." Minors
can obtain the necessary licenso by
presenting to tho Clerk of the Court
tho'-written consent of their parents or
guardians, and it must bo acknowledg
ed before a notary or other officor com
petent to take acknowledgements. Min
isters, justices or others who shall per
form a marriago ceremony without tho
presentation of tho license, will be
fined $100 for the benefiit of the
county, and anyman who persuades a
minor to becomo his .wife without a
license, invites a prolonged residence
in tho penitentiary. Tho license fee is
only fifty cents, so that it will bo In no
degree oppressive to tho poor.
This act is one ot tho best achieve
ments, of tho late Legislature, and it
will result in incalcuable good to soci
ety. , It ends all doubtful and, disputed
marriages in Pennsylvania; it will pro
tect tho young and unsuspecting from
tho wiles of adventurers; it will bo tbe
faithful, guardian of homes. alike before
and .after marriage, and it will cut off
one-half, or more of our divorce cases.
It was wisdom on tho part of law-makers
to. delay tho operation of the law
for several mouths bo that all can have
tho amulest oDiiortunitv to act advis
edly in regard to its provisions. Bo
foro tho 1st of Ootobcr the new law
will bo known not oulv to every min
ister and officer who can perform tho
marriage, ceremony, but to every
family in the State, and tho day it bo
comes operative will be mcmorablo ns
dating tho ronowed, devotion of a great
Stato to tho sanctity of marriago and
homo. Tunes.
A Terrible Story.

The papers are full at tho present
time of articles on tho foreign traflio in
English girls, a traffic that cither in
spite of, or through tho negleot of tho
authorities,both here aud abroad, is car
ried on in an infamously wholesale man
ner without any check. Let any ono at

Washington, Juno 15, 1885.
Tho rear portico of tho White Houso
looks southward over half a milo of
green sward and au artificial lako to
tho Washington Monument and beyond
dowq tb broad Potomac, command
ing a viow seven miles in extent. For
fiity summers the Presidents of tho
United &ates bavo stood on this port
ico of Saturday attcrnoous, chatted
with theirifriends, aud listened to tho
musio of tho Marine liand from tho
green sward below. President Cleve
land bouorcd tho custom for tho first
timo last Saturday nnd hundreds of
W'ishiiigtonians got their first glimpse
of, his strong .rugged f aco and non-
Appollo-liko figure. It was curious
to seo soverai hundred people standing
below looking up at tho, .President on
the portico above. Tho gazers wero
mostly ot tho uovernmeut clerk class
and their faces woro an expression of
anxiety, curiosity, hopo and fear. I
looked in vain for an expression of res
igation in their government pap-fed
faces. It may be said with emphasis
that they will not resign. They aro
trying to read their fato in the faco of
tho President, witli a curiosity that
was moro naturaVthan polite; they star
ed in. silenco by tho hour.
Tbo reader who is not nn oilico icok
or or office holder will be more interest
ed iu tho appearance of tho President
than of tho crowd. Ho looks ruddier
and healthier than when ho delivered
his inaugural on the 4th. of March:
His manners aro unaffected and pleas
ing. Ho greets. thoso whom ho knows
with an unstudied grace cordial but
not effusive. Ho woro a Prince Albert
coat and a fashionable silk hat. In
greeting thoso who called ho would
rcmovo his hat, and while talking to
ladies, would stand uncovered for a
few minutes. But tho rays of tho sun
made it necessary for all the L'entlo
men to wear their hata most of tho
Mr Cleveland dhores to his early
hours and habits. of hard work and in
theso respects ho is imitated by all tho
heads of Department.
Visitors bavo no trouhlo in seeing
the Cabinet officers. It is only thoso
who como.laUiwho havo any trouble.
Two of tho best busiuess men iu tho
Cabinet aro Manning and Whitney,
There was some criticism at tho tune
of, their appointment becauso two mem
bers trom .Now lork wero placed in
tho, Cabinet. Tried by the test of ex
perience they havo proved among tho
best selections that the President has
made. It is further proof of his good
judgment that theso two men wero
personally known to him. His weak
est selections havo been thoso whiuh
wcro rccomcridcd to him by other p;o
plo. Tho Treasury Department is now
in belter hands than It has been lor a
number of year. Mr. Whitney U a
thorough man of tho world and liis
his department on a very good fooiliig.
Ho U polite to every one and
does not ajiuoy his callers with the
constant declaration mado by somo of
thu new officials that his timo is ux
cessively occupied and that it is with
only tho greatest difficulty that he can
afford to givo a fow seconds of his
time to any individual. Any ouu to
seo him with his visitors would think
that lie was tho casicst-going and most
thoroughly good-natured member of

fleasant Summer Trips,
Krom tho New York Times, Juno 7, 1885.
With the first hot breath of Summer como
recollections of broad highways, of hard
satul, stretches of billowy ocean, tho roar
of surges, the cooling breath of Neptune,
the plash of tho waves, the salty nlr from
tho wldo sweeping sea, and the countless
other delights of lite ou tho sen coast.
Anil nature, ever kindly. 1ms placed within
easy reaching distance a sea coast for the
pleasure of mankind and womankind In
their hours of leisure, and which man has
Improved until it seems perfection- From
Sandy Hook to Capo May tho Atlantic
Ocean dashes upon a coast of tho most var
iable, but always beautiful description.'
Years ago this wasj for the most part a
desolate shore, but to-day it blossoms like
rose, and attracts to It the tired dwellers In
cities who havo a day, a week, or n month
of relaxation. Atone end of this shining
strip of sand lies Long Ilrnnch, and tit tho
other, Capo Slay, while between them aro
located numerous other resorts, all worthy
of attention, and each of which has Its
champions of Summer tourists.
Tho most important of lho intermediate
resorts Is Atlantic City. It has thu distinc
tion of being strikingly unlike all other sea
side resorts. It reminds one of n striking
character in "Uncle Tom's Cabin," o young
woman who "just growed." Atlantic City
wasn't planned. It jumped luto exlstcnco
apparently of Its own accord, and has
seemingly made a lilt. It Is practically an
Island, for it U separated from the main
land by miles of salt marshes. It Is twenty
miles nearer to Philadelphia than any oth
er New Jersey resort, and perlups for this
reason It Is the Mecca of PIiiIadclpUIan3
and of people who llvo hundreds of miles
from that city. Every one In Pcnnsylva-
nla lias heard of Atlantic City, nnd when
the denizen ot the rural districts takes a
vacation, and reaches Philadelphia, his
first thought Is to get out of It aud reach
Atlantic City as quickly as possible. Tho
first thing to do Is to find a hotel, and,
with a guide, this Is not diflloult they aro
numerous. There nro, besides tho hotels,
cottages without number and private board
ing houses beyond count. Atlantic City
lias, beyond doubt, mado a hit, for it is al.
ways crowded in Summer witli a vast con
course of peoplo drawn from every walk of
life. The facilities for reaching Atlantic
City are favorable. The distance from
New York, by way of Philadelphia, Is ICO
miles by rail, and Is covered In about four
hours by lho Pennsylvania ltallroad and Its
seashore connections. All kinds of fish
abound In Its waters, nnd salt water birds
aro numerous In Its immediate vicinity,
Its even temperature makes It a healthful
resort, and this, perhaps, helps to account
for the fact that It is patronized by lho rich
as well as the poor. Its board walk is a
joy forever, if not a thing of beauty.
Uathlng and swimming is indulged In to an
unlimited extent. On Sundays the crowd
Is immense. On week days It Is also Im
mense. Atlantic City has nothing to com.
plain of. Tho present season promises to
eclipse all previous seasons in the matter of
attendance, and the natives are making des
perate efforts to provldo for the rush that
they may make all tho hay posslblo while
the sun remains above the horizon. Nortli
and South Atlantic Cities arc adjuncts to
tue parent town,and arc making big strides
to catch up. Between Atlantic City and
Capo May arc a number of other pleasant
and flourishing resorts, such ns Ocean City,
bca Islo City, aud Sewcll's Point, but
comparison with Capo May these aro but
us the lowly snow drop to tho full-crown
rose. It lias been said that tho West Jcr.
scy ltallroad carries tho traveler through
a desert before it Anally deposits him at
Capo May, but if so, does not tho journey
enhance the attractions of tho queen of
watering places? Even a sight of it has a
soothing Influcnco on tho most dissatisfied,
and there seems to ho some ground for tho
statement that had the lotus eaters discov
ered Capo Moy they would have pitched
their tents there In preference to any other
spot on tho globe. Thcro Is nothing
ephemeral about Capo May. Away back
In 1075 it boasted of a llapllst church, and
surely if there wero a church there It must
have had a congregation. This, of Itself, is
a sort of gratification to the residents of
tho beautiful city on tho sea, a city which
csn boast of a population lho year round,
with great hotels, magnificent privato resl.
denccs, and countless other advantages,
and a life all Its own. Nothing, apparent,
entry, can shako its popularity. Ilutltupou
a strip of upland, where the waters of bay
and ocean meet, it has a grand view of the
Atlantic. Its beach Is broad and smooth,
and It is considered tho grandest bulbing
ground ou tho coast. Tho dangerous un
dertow, that makes bathing at sumo points
insecure, Is hero unknown, und perfect
safety seems to reign over tho waves that
lavo Its silver sands. Its streets are broad
and level, and all Its structures have an air
of solidity and nn absenco of newness that
is refreshing of Itself, An unobstructed
view of tlio ocean Is obtained from one cud
to the other of lho maguificcnt boulevard
that runs parallel with tho occun for a dis
tance of live miles. Its bench Is its clary.
nnd its now Iron pier, tho prido ot its peo
ple. It is as smooth as a billiard table, Its
sky is always blue ind Its sun is seldom
hidden. Its bathing facilities nro glorious
and are taken advantage ot to tho full.
Noon U the favorite hour for this diversion,
and thousands of both sexes, all In cos.
tumcs more or less unique and striking,
then tako their dip In view of oilier and
admiring or amused thousands. Capo
May's hotels aro qulto as famous ns tho
city Itself. During tlio Summer season,
from Juno till September, Capo May's ac
commodations, extensive ns they aro, aro
taxed to the utmost. Early as It Is the In
dications nro that tho present season will
push lis predecessors very hard In nn effort
to beat the record.
At tho extreme southern end of New Jer
sey Is situated Capo May Point. Except
on tho north-east sldo It Is surrounded by
tho Atlnnllo Ocean and Dclawaro Hay. Al
llioueh It Is but two miles distant from
Capo May It Is connected with that resort
bv mall, and tho icsldcnls of tlio two
points are generally well acquainted will
both stamping grounds. Like Spring Lake,
Capo May Point possesses a fresh-water
lake, which Is fed by cool and sparkling
springs. The lako Is situated within a row
hundred feet of tlio Atlantic's salty-break-
crs. Its notois nro cxccncm, ami us guesm
