Washington. D. O., March 6, 1888.
After many months of hard labor,
Mr. Mills and his Democratic col
leagues of the Hodbo Committeo on
Ways and Means have perfected a tar
iff bill, which is now beforo tho whole
committee. It will bo reported to the
House at the earliest practical moment,
whioh means when the republican
members of the committee have ex
hausted all tho methods of delay to
which parlimentary usage entitles
The bill does not entirely satisfy
every democrat no bill would. It is
not an ideal revenue reform bill, nor
such a measure as the gentlemen who
framed it would have presented had
they been clothed with plenary legisla
tive authority. Practical statesman
ship recognizes the limitations imposed
by conflicting views and opposing in
terests. Still it is a bill that is likely
to be supported by every member of
the party, as the most expedient that
can be bad at present. It puts wool,
lumber and salt on the free list and
materially reduces the duty on sugar,
aud it is estimated that it will reduce
the revenue of the Government to the
extent of $50,000,000.
Candor compels me to say that at
this timo there is much doubt as to
whether the bill will pass the House,
owing to the willingness of certain
members to sacrifice tho interests of
the country at large as well as the
democratic party becauso the bill would,
if it became a law, injure some petty
industry in their own districts.
Shouldn't there bo some way of
whipping these men into tho party
traces or else out of the party altogeth
er 1 Tho democratic party is pledged
to Revenue reform, on that issue it
won the last Presidential election xnd
hopes to win the next ; though
how it will do it if the House of Rep
resentatives, with a democratic major
ity, shall refuse to pas9 a tariff bill
looking towards teform, is more than
the most clearhiaded politician can
seo jrwt now. However, thuro is timo
enough for the people to be heard from
on this subject, and what is demanded
by tho people is seldom refused by
Congress. L9t the democratic press
bring the greatest power of modern
times pnbliu opinion to bear on this
The new tariff bill is approved by
the President and the Secretary of the
Tieasury and I might also add by a
majority of democrats.
From this time on tho House will
hold evening sessions on Friday for
the consideration of private pensions
and political disability bills.
The Senate oommitteo having in
charge the District of Columbia de

The Taxes to go First.
Tho Mills tiriff bill is nntactonizod
in tho monopolistic press, and will un
doubtedly bo met in tho House by the
old plea that tho internal rovonuo taxos
should bo first repealed.
Tho proposition is undemocratic In
pnnclplo and economically unsound.
To abate first tho taxes that bear heav
iest on the Greatest number of ncoolo
to tax luxuries and vices heavily
ana necessities lirutly is both Demo
cratic and right.
lo abolish the internal taxes on
whiskey, beer and tobacco is simply to
throw away revenue, and relievo manu
facturers and dealers from an irntiojt
that is not burdensome. No poor man
would be abto to buy a drink or pack
ago of tobaoco or a oiaar any cheaper
if these taxes wero removed. Tho tax
is, in nearly every case, too small to
divido among consumers. And if the
tax wero loll ovcrv consumer could
abolish it for himself by tho simple ox
pcdient of leaving whiskey and tobac
Very different, however, is it with
the tariff taxes that it is propose! to
abolish or reduce. To cheapen sugar
a cent or two cents a pound, to reduce
the price of clothing, i umber, glass,
and hundreds of manufactured articles,
is to givo all tho proper relief. Ab
Speaker Carlisle says : ''The people
need cheap food, cheap clothing, cheap
books and cheap tools and implements
to work with much more than they
need cheap tobacco, cheap whiskey or
cheap beer.' The vast aud complicat
ed system of internal revenue has been
cut down until only three artioles re
main, The tariff is still up to tho war
maximum. Down with it to a peaco

Special telegram to the Times.
Wn.KEsiiAiiaE, March 3. Thirty
years ago when Mary Gotham was a
preltio lassio in tho town ot JJurnam,
England, she bad many suitors for her
hand but finally consented to marry
Martin Bowe, a handsome young man
of the town. Everyone looked upon
the marriage as a very agreeable one
For a while tho two young people lived
a very happy life, but disagreements
arose and the y ounce hu-band took to
drink. The wife became discouraged,
and one bright moonlight night she
eloped with a former suiter named
Gaughen. The eloping couple came
to America and settled in Schuylkill
county. Bowe, the deserted husband,
left England ten years after his wife
came to America, After a timo he
emigrated to Australia, and then came
to the anthracite retion of Pennsyl
vania, where big wages were then be
ing paid for all kinds of labr. Bowe
secured work in the coal mines and
prospered. One day while attending
a funeral in a reighboriug village he
was startled at seeing the face of bis
wife. At first he did not believe ii
was the same woman, but after some
inquiry he found that she was his long
lost wife. Mr-. Bowe was then living
comfortably with her second husband,
Gaughen, aud she declined to leave
him to rejoin her first husband. Bowe
then returned to his home with a heavy
heart and he did not see bis wife again
until about a year after, when he fol
lowed her to this county. Saughan,
the husband No. 2, thought he would
do better in this section, so he moved
bis family to Ashley, this county. He
continued to labor iu the mines and by
industry and thrift succeed in accumu
lating considerable property. One day
Bowe, husband No. 1, came along and
applied for board at the Ganghau man
sion. Airs, liaushan accommodated
him and now had two husbands under
tbo same roof. Everything went along
smoothly in theBowe-Gaughan house
hold until about two years ago, when
Gaughan began to drink heavily. Ho
tola bis Inenrl that ho had trouble on
his miud and couldu't stand it any
longer. He aud his wife frequently
quarreled. Last Christmas Gaughan
was loumi dead in bed with a bullet
hole in his head. Tho Coroner's jury
brought in a verdict of suicide. At
the time of 'his death Gaughan left all
his property to his only daughter. The
two other children objected and served
notice that they would contest the will.
it is now alleged that tbe daughter
was claughan's only child, and that the
two brothers were Bowe's children.

JUDOR AI.BniOHT DECpES THAT CON
STAlll.KR MUST nit l'AU) FOR INSPECT
Au.kntown, March 8.- Ono of Iho
most important oases tried at this
week's term of court was that of Reu-
' ben Scmmel against tho county of Le
high. Hommel has for many years
been Uonstablo of .North white nan
township and sued to recover fees and
mileago for making monthly visits to
plaoes whoro liquor Is sold, as required
by tho Brooks nigh licenso law. Tho
Constables of the county last fall form
ed a league, having for its object tbe
securing of compensation for making
inonthly visits to nil places where
liquor is sold. In October Semml
brought suit against tho county for
a feo of $1.50 for each tour of incpeo
lion and mileago. Seramel's district it
(ho largest in the county, and for this
reason ho was selected to tet the case.
On each tonr ho covers twenty-five
miles, and ho claimed that in addition
to Iho feo of $1.60-he was entitled to
six ooiits per mile, or $1.50 more, mak
ing his compensation for each month
three dollars. Judgo Albright told th"
jury that tho feo bill of 18C8 entitlod
Constables to foes for certain duties
and slnco the duties of these official"
embraced in tho high license law were
compulsory thoy were entitled to a fee
of $1.50 and mileage. Ho directed the
jury to. render a verdict in Mr. Sera
fuel's favor for twelve dollars Id pay
ment for his services for four months.
Tho Commissioners havo mado a
motion for a now trial. Should a new
trial bo refused it is altogether likely
that tbo Commissioners will appeal tbe
case to tho Supremo Court. If tho de
cision of Judge Albright is sustained
it will affect every Constable in the
State. A final deoision favorable to
Semmcl would oost this county annual
ly about one thousand dollars.
In Northampton county it has been
decided that Constables need not make
the visits and in Montgomery and
Sohuylkill the Judgis havo decided
that sitoh tours are compulsory, but in
neither case has the question of com
pensation been raised.

A cruel joke was perpetrated to-day
upon the good pcoplo who live along
the upper end ot tho Charlotte, Colum

a gang of waggish drummers, who had

tbe report that President Cleveland,
after leaving Charleston, would pas

given credence generally, t specially by
the country people.
This evening, therefore, when the
train from the South came along, the
stations at Rockbill, Pinehill, Feraille,
Seven-mile Pump, etc, were crowded
by men, women and children, ail class

lar blending of Ood'a foreordained purposes,
Iwith man's perfect freedom of action by
'which those purposes wero to bo carried out.
i J Gb 11s, as the true Messiah, had romo to the
'people to vthom be was promised. All the
(prat works ascribed to tho Messiah by their
Iprophets, had been wrought by him. Kveu
Itho soldiers wero constrained to say, "iJever
(man spoko as this man!'' And now as no
jdrcw nigh to Jerusalem and knew that ho
was Hearing the cross at every step thither,
ho also knew that his triumphal entry Into
jtho city must then be made; oven as It was
(foretold. "All things were ready." The an
ointed timo had come. Tho peoplo were
jthronglng In great multltules about him.
Not knowing why they did It, the owners of
the ass hod tied her before his door, and
;thero she stood, awaiting the messengers
of the master, coming to claim her for his
cervlce. And so he paused at Iiethphage, to
Imakotho needed preparations. And so he
isent forward two of his disciple to tho vil-
fsge over against them. It does not seem
hat he told them for what purpose the asa

Itributa money. Matt, ivll,'27. He did so in
.the case of the two disciples sent to prepare
ji'or the l'oSKiYer, Mark xlv, 18. But he did
rot do so In this case. He seems to
have sent for the ass without telling them
Srhy tbe animal was needed. There was
to ba do preparation for their playing a part
JHq hinting to them what the prophet had
said. No telling them what they would bs
expected to do. The time, had come. The
occasion would be silently brought
bofore them, and tho rest would bo as
the spirit moved them to act. And In this
direction these things are very clear, I.e. :
1. The Lord's knowledge of coming events.
2. Some. Intimations of his power.
V. 4. This, manifestly, refers to the
Saviour's knowledge of what was to bo done,
and his purpose in doing it, and not at all to
the disciples) They did what ho told them
to do without, at that time, having anything
except that he told them to do it The pur
pose ot it all lay in his own mind alone, no
knew what was written. He knew why It
was written. He knew that tho t'jno was
come, and that this proof of his Messloshlp
was to be furnished against themwlres by
ihe peoplo to whom he come. And there
fore, all this was done.
V. S, 6. This prophesy Is in Zach. ix, 0.
Nothing could be plainer. Tho time of the
coming kingdom had come. Their king him
self had come, and the shouts of the multi
tude, as they proclaimed his coming, rent the
air. Would they receive their klngt It was
the crisis of Jerusalem's destiny. Who can
say that this was not a real thing I That this'
triumphal entry into Jerusalem did not mean
the setting up of the kingdom then and there,
If the nation had received its king.
V. 7-0. And here commences the disciples'
part, with that of the multitude. Thus far
Jesus had acted alone, and now the time for
their action had come. We can see tho act
ing of the process. Every line of the record
adds some new feature to the picture. Seel
Thodlsciplos havo returned with tbe ass and
hercoltl AVhat shall they do with them) ,A
sudden impulse seems tosetzo them. They
take their loose, flowing, outside gaimonU
and lay them on the untrained colt. Rever
ently they approach their Lord, and under
his gently constratnlag power "sot bira
thereon I" There hj sits, Just as tho prophet
foretold but with no wcrd sjmken by fiim
Zion's king with his face toward Zion's capi
tal. Sudden and unlocked for as the fire ot
tho Lord that fell on Elijah's sacrifice, a
strong impulse solzod the great multitude, as
they took up tho lino of march toward
Jerusalem. It was composod of two sections
those that went before and those that fol
lowed after with Jesus iu tho midst. Tho
march begins. From those nearest the per
son of the Lord, a shout, as of triumph goes
up. Listen I Why it is tho strain of their
old prophets a portion of the Great Hollel
or song of praise an acknowledged tribute
to tho Messiah. Seo Pa. cxvill, S, 20. Tho
song passes fromtaan to man; from thoso ia
tho roar the gladsome strain rolls on: "Ho
sanna to tho Son of David I Blessed bo ha
that.cometh in tho name of tho Lord! Ho
sanna in the highest!" Those that went be
fore caught up tbo strain, and tho air was
filled with its melody as tho procession
swept on tow'ord Jerusalem.
V. 10,11. Nothing could bo' more natural
than this. Of course, , "tho. daughter of
Zion" woud ask: "Who is fhis!'iAnd,there
could be no other answer, than that which tho
tnultitudo'gavoV ' "
V. 12, 13. This is tho second of tho1 two
cleanslngs ot the temple by our Lord. The
portion ot the temple referred-to. here was
the court of the Oentlles, Into which alone
such things as are here named could bo
taken. And because many Jews came from
foreign lands, they would need to change their
money into tbo shekel ot tho sanctuary. Ex

ingly out when tho hope of their unlawful
gain was thus swept away.

Mo other preparation has won success at
homo equal to Hood's Sartaparllla. In
Lowell, Mass., where It is made, it is now,
as it has been for years, the leading medicine
for purifying the blood, and toning and
strengthening the system. This " good name
1 at home" Is "a tower of strength abroad."
It would require a volume
to print all Lowell people
have said In favor ot Hood's
Barsaparllla. Mr. Albert
Estet, living at 23 East rino
Street, Lowell, tor is years
employed as boss carpenter by J. W. Bennett,
president ot tho Erie Telephono Company,
1 had a Urge running sore come on bis leg,
I which troubled him a year, when be began to
take Hood's Sarsaparllla. The sore soon grew
less In size, and in a short timo disappeared.
Jos. Dunphy,214 Cen
tral Street, Lowell, had Praise
swellings and lumps
on his face and neck,
which Hood's Sarsapa- GnrannnrMla
I Mia completely cured. Sarsaparllla
Mrs. C. W. Marriott, wife of the First As
sistant Fire Engineer of Lowell, says that
for IS years sho was troubled with stomach
disorder and sick headache, which nothing
relieved. The attacks camo on every fort
night, when sho was obliged to take her bed,
and was unable to enduro any noise. She
took Hood's Sarsaparllla, and after a time
the; attacks ceased entirely.
