Charles II. Campbell took possession
of the Register and Recorder's oflico
oa Monday morning. Thoso who have
business to transact in that oflico dur
ing Mr. Campbell's inoumbency may
be snro that they will bo treated with

The l'oslmaster Ueneral has pro-
Dared a bill, wnloh will bo introduced
Into the House as soon aa practicable
after tho ro-nssembiing of Congress,
materially modifying the present law
relating to pormlneablo writing or
printing on the wrappers of second,
third and toarih-ciass man matter.
The bill provides that any printing
which is mailable as third olass matter
may bo placed ppon the wrappers of
such matter, provided it is not in the
natnre of a correspondence: and pro
vided further, that a suflluiently large
pace be left lor tbe address.
On Monday morning the now board
of county commissioners was sworn in
and entered npon their duties, if. t.
Zarr Esq. was elected oouusel to the
commitwioners, and Dr. J. O. Ruttcr
physician to the jail, but there was a
oonteat xor me position oi oieric,
There were fourteen applicants for
the place, but it soon became
apparent tbat the fight was be
tween John B. Casov who has
held the plaoe for the past nine years,
and J. D. Bodioe of Malnville. On
Tuesday morning after six ballots Mr.
'Bodine was elected by the votes ot
Mesa. Rittenhouse and Girton, Mr.
' Stevens voting for Casey. As Mr.
Bodine had offered to do the work for
$600 tbe salary was fixed at that figure.
It has been $800 for some years past.
Mr. Bodine a appointment was some
thing of a enrpnse to the local pouti
clans, because so far as oould be seen
on the surface the indications havo been
that Mr. Caaey would be retained, and
his appointment has been predicted all
along. But "there's many a slip twixt
the cup and the lip.
Mr. Casey who goes out, has been
very cood clerk.
Mr. Bodine is competent and intelli
gent, and it will not take him loog to
get the run of the business of the office.

Washington. D. 0., Jan. 2, 1888.
At tbe close of the year it is probably
the proper thing to briefly review the
Government's financial condition. Dur
'ins the month of December, the re
ceipts from all sources were $29,325
253, and, the disbursements were $10,'
400,682, a net gain of nearly nineteen
millions, oat of which amount about
three and a half millions interest upon
the public debt must be paid, leaving
tbe total during that month the nation
al debt was reduced' fifteen and a quar
ter millions, and for the wKole year it
was decreased a little more than one
hundred and seventeen million dollars
the largest reduotion being made in
June and November.
Many of the Congressmen who visit
ed their homes during tbe recess, have
returned, and others are daily arriving
all looking with impatience to tho
re assembling of Congress, when the
committees will bo announced and the
work of the session will begin in earnest.
It is understood that Speaker Carlisle
has finished his most tedious and
troublesome undertaking that of mak
ing out his committee lists, and with
his great experience, it is confidently
believed tbat his work will bo accept
able, although many members will be
disappointed at their assignments.
Those not familiar with the workings
of Congressional ambition cMinot con
ceive of the jealousies and bickerings
of aspiring statesmen in such matters.
If a member's name does not appear
first on a committee, he would like to
be a second or thirJ ; every Congress
man has a settled aversion to appear
ing last on a committer.
Under the lead of those Republican
malignant, Senators Sherman, Hnar
and Edmunds, a concerted effort is be
ing made to defeat the confirmation of
Mr. Lamar, but it will probably fail of
its purpose, although it may defer ac
tion on tbe nomination several weeks.
The proposed pr-imotion of the Secre
tary will be made the occasion of a
lengthy and heated partisan debate by
the Republicans, in which the South
will be severely assailed. Senator
Sawyer, of Wisconsin, and one or two
other Republican Soaators, havo inti
mated a willingness to vote for Mr.
Lamar's translation, and there is littliS
doubt of his ultimate success.
Tbe Democratic Senators are very
pronounced in favor of tariff reform,
and they have appointed a committee,
of whioh Mr. Kenna Is chairman, to
confer with the party leaders iu the
House on tho issue of tax reduction,
as snob a bill must necessarily origi
nate in that body. Mr. Kenna's select
ion is significant, and his views on tho
question of tariff legislation aro known
to be conservative, and it is therefore
thought that he is inclined to favor a
Both parties realizo that tho tariff
must be revised, and they aro accord

viow of accomplishing tbat object and
at tho same time preserving partisan
alignments. It remains to be seen
whether suob a difficult feat in political
gymnastics can be executed success
fully. The report of the Pacifio Railroad
Commission will bo ono of tho most
important measures brought to the at
tention of Congress, and it is hoped
mat tnis giant corporation will be com'

minority report is a most severe but
just arraignment, in which Republican
nud millionare United States Seuator
Stanford and his bonanza associates
are handled in a manner truly refresh

Reaping, Pa., Jan. 3 The worst
news anticipated in connection with the
Roading Railroad troubles has just
been received from the coal regions to
tho effect that every colliery of the
Philadelphia and Roading Railroad
Company in the Schuylkill Coal Basin
quit work to-day. With the oxoeption
of a few individual oollieries about Ash
land and Mahanoy City, which agreed
to pay their miners tho 8 per cent, ad
vance, nil the regions are idle to-day,
and it is a question whether the miners
in the individual colleries will not join
Master Workman Holmes of St.
Clair, who answered tho ciroular lettor
of Prosidont Corbin, after roviewing
tbo entire situation, says the minors
aro courageous to enter the mines and
work. There are' no cowards among
them. Thoy know tbey will have to
face misery, want, and starvation, while
tho officials livo in plenty. Yet the
miners claim that tho 8 por cent.- ad
vanco which the company can easily
pay gives them but a scant living, and
tbey prefer to suffer and go hungry
and seo their wives and children in de
spair rather than give up the strike,
whioh is a strike for principle. Suob
is the feeling of the miners of tho
Philadelphia and Reading Company.
They are determined. All the eloquenoe
of Mr. Parker, Congressman Biunner,
and other labor leaders oould not per
euade them to keep at work. Thoy
went out, and this means a long and a
bitter struggle. The miners Bay the
company need not hire extra polioe,
but that tho miners will scrupulously
guard and protect tho company's prop
erty. All is quiet in tho regions. Coal and
freight trains are moving and the rail
roaders strike has quite drifted into in
significance; it is defeated. The miners'
ntrike is now the topio of all. The in
dividual collieries will be obl to supply
the local demand for coal if tbey are
not interfered with. There are rumors
that tho company will not furnish the
individual collieries any empty cars to
shin their product, but this is denied
by the officials. From now on the
coal shipments will be very light.
Ashland, Pa., Jan. 3. The Knights
ol Labor miners at a meeting hero last
night decided to go on strike, and as
a consequence there is but one Reading
colliery in' this distriot wo'king, and
that one is short handed. Riley and
Company bavo made a satisfactory
agreement with their employes and
their oollieries are in operation. This
agreement, it is said, is a continaanoe
of tbe rate of wages in force during the

TUB LOCK HAVEN MUBDEBEB TELLS TIOW
HE MUBDEBED THE COLBTS.
Shaffer, the murderer who has been
sentenced to death for tbe murder of
Mr. and Mrs. Colby at Lock Haven has
confessed all the facts of the murder
to a Williamsport Chit reporter. Fol
lowing is his full confession as piyen
He says that he came from the West
last Summer on account of the scrape
he got into by passing a brass obeck
on an old farmer and aft -r ward escap
ing from tho olnoers. tin traveled on
freight tr.iins nearly all the way until
he reached Milesburg, where he left the
railroad and took to the wagon roads.
He went through Belleforite to Zion,
thence to ftublersburg, and on down
through the Narrows, whore he com
mitted tho robberies on Saturday morn
ing, August Gib, before uavligbt. Un
Saturday morning ho went to Colby's
housn and got" breakfast. To these
people be Htated that his name was
Wilcox, and that he was engaged in
hunting stray horses. All day Satur
day and Saturday night he slept in tbo
bushes in tlat locality, and on Sunday
morning went back to Colby's for
Nora Colby recognized him on the
second visit, and asked him if his real
name wasn't Luther Shaffer, and find
ing it was useless to deny it any longer
he admitted that such was his name.
After breakfast be went out aud laid
in the bushes near Dy tho house until
Isaiah went out to cut grass to feed tbe
stock, when he came out of his conceal
ment and went back to the bouso. He
states that Mrs. Colby had been very
agreeable to him all alon ', and bo im
agined that sho was "struck on" him,
and xccoruiiigly he made certain pro
posals to her which were rejected. He
then tooK hold ot her to throw her
down, but she struggled and screamed
and her clothing was bally torn. When
ho fell she let out a frightful scream
,i,!i, r.:..u,A qi,(t. i.i. v
up, whereupon she raa out of tbe bouso
(creaming at the top of her voice. Ho
followed her and told her to stop, but
eho refused, so be drew his revolver
and shot at her. When the first shot
struck her sho oried out, and turned
half way around and throw up her arm
as sho ran, as if to protect her head
from tbo shots. This fact probably
accounts for tbo ball lodging in her
back Just as tho second shot struok
her she bad crossed tbo stream, wbero
she fell. Ho tiien went over and shot
her in tbe head "finished her," aa he
Colby, hearing tho shots and soreams

himself in tho bushes tbat grew thick
on all fides, and as Isaiah ctrao up

He then went back into tho house
and looked about for whatovor he
could find. Ho took tho watoh down
from tbo nail, took Colby's pants and
tho gun, and left. He says he took the
gun for fear some one might- discover
tho crimu at unco and start in pursuit
of him, aud shoot him with it. Tho
reason ho gave for killing these people
was, that as he had boon rccogulzed by
tho Colbys and had mado the attempt
to outrage Nora when sho was alive,
bo was afraid that tho robberies aud
all would como out Ho theu started
for Lock Haven, and when he roaohed

ELEANOR KIBE'S LETTER.
Bbookltk, N. Y., Jan. 1838,
A tour among tho fancy stores at
this season is wonderfully productive
of ideaa as well as bargains lor master,
and birthday, and oven for another
Christmas. While it may not bo al
together advisable to follow tho ex
amplo of one cnergetiolady who invari
ably began on Christmas day to mako
somolhing for next year, yot thoso of
us who sit up nights and wear our
selves out to finish our gifts in time,
might well nlilizo the stormy days and
long evenings of Jan. and Job. in
making pretty trifles whioh will bo in
roadiness oven for another Christmas.
Tho "decorative crazo" is said to bo
over, and yet there nover wore so many
pretty, ingenious aud useful articles to
be found. Every thing oan be utilized
by a woman of quiok wit To day I
saw a hair brush whioh had outlived its
usefulness in its original form, turned
into a very pretty pin cushion. Tho
bristles wero clipped off with a sharp
soissors, the wooden back after being
thoroughly cleansed in strong soda
water was gilded, and in lieu of tho
bristles was a thick padding of cotton
covered with yellow silk, the buo of tho
gilding. Then pins were stuck in like
bristles, and there was the old brusb
a dainty enough present for any friend.
For tidies, thoso necessary evils,
there is no end of fabrio and design.
The danger is in making the tidy so
dolioate and beautiful that it is no long
er useful. I saw one not long ago made
of whito boltiug cloth of finest texture.
The design, a group of grasses, was
exquisitely painted, and the onds wero
finished with a long white silk fringe.
As a work of art it was beantifol, but
it was not artistic, simply because it
was not adapted to its supposed use.
A tidv is primarily a light, easily re
movable protection for anon-removable
furniture covering, and may bo
made as pretty as yon Tike, but a tidy
which needs protection for itself is an
off'nisO to a really artistio eye.
There is a great rage now for em
broidered bedspreads. They are made
either of linen, or of Bolton sheeting,
both of which como wide enough for
tbe purpose. Tho Bolton sheeting is a
twilled cotton goods, whioh comes in a
soft, creamy white, and is very pretty
for the purpose. Thn design should
be a bold, conventional one, and work
ed in outline with flourishing thread, a
heavy linen thread which is manufac
tured for this use. It oomes in beauti
ful soft colors, and washes well These
spreads are not cheap affairs. One of
them stamped with the work commenc
ed, and materials for finishingoosts at
least twenty dollars, and from thero
up to fifty, according to i-ize and elab
orateness of design. Thes are finished
with a plain hemstitched hem, or with
fringe according to taste.
Bags are also in high favor. Large
bags to be worn at the side, loog bags
to do thrown over the arm, dainty little
bags to be carried in tbe hand, sensible
looking bags to hang in some ' con
venient corner all sorts and conditions
of bags, and of overy possible material
from cretonne to China silk.
A young girl who "can neither paint
nor embroider'1 wishes to know how to
make a pretty sorap-basket. A lady
friend in the same fix mado one the
other day in this fashion. She got a
long rope, and sewed it round and
round, moulding it over a tile. When
finished, a thick coat of white paint
was applied inside and out, with a
large brush. After this was thorough
ly dry, a small brush was dipped in
gold paint, and drawn around in the
hollows left between tbe successive
ooils of rope, and presto, there was one
of the prettiest Borap-baskets ever
"It would seem from your article on
Mrs. Cleveland's brown-bread as if
every cook ought to know something
of chemistry," "old housekeeper" writes
and perhaps my ignoranoe of that
science accouta for my non-success in
the culinary line."
There are a few practical chronical
principles whioh seem to mo indispen
sable. Still, I am forced to say that
some of the best cooks I have ever
known are entirely unacquainted with
this soienoe. But they had common
sense and acute observation. They
noyer mado a mistake the second time.
And again, there are women of excel
lent sense, and a knowledge of chemis
try, who oan not cook well to savo
their lives. The "knack" or talent is
comnletelv lackincr. "Old Honsekeen-
er" adds that her daughter made some
bread from myTeceipe "dissolving a
Fleischmann'a yeast cake in hotwater,''
and it was not as light aa she could
wish. I am inclined to think that both
mother and daughter fail from careless
ness, for if tbe latter had read straight,
she would have seen that I was partio-
ular to say "warm water, not hot.'1 If
my rule is followed intelligently, "there
is no such word as tail.

time rain fell in torronts.
Thus far the Winter has been mild
