Same Old Story;
Tariff For Revenue.
Democratic Leaders Line up on That
The revision of the tariff, upon the
plan of a tariff for revenue only, is to
be the aim of the democrats.
This announcement was made to-day
by several democratic leaders of in
fluence in the party's affairs, and fol
lowing the receipt of the following tel
egam from Representative Underwood
of Alabama, one of the prominent
"I favor a tariff for revenue only. I
believe the difference in labor and cost
of production of manufactured articles
at home and abroad would be covered
by a tariff that raised a sufficient reve
nue to support the government eco
"I am opposed to protecting profits
and because I believe protecting profits
means protecting a monoply."
The PRESS sanctum was on Saturday
last, honored by a social visK. from our
old and esteemed friend the venerable
James O'Day, of East Emporium. Al
though well advanced in years, now
being almost 68 years old, he has for
37 years been a faithful member of the
repair crew of the Pennsy R R., at the
Junction, in the department managed
by Mr. Elmer Klock, than whom there
is no more competent employee of the
Pennsy, kind and popular with his
men, yet firm in the direction of his
department. Mr. O'Day is profuse in
his praise and admiration of his fore
man. Long may they both live, for
they are an honor to our town.
"Human Hearts" the melodramatic
success announced at the Emporium
Opera House appeals to every class of
playgoers. It deals with a story that
teems the heart from beginning to
end. 'Tom Logan" an honest young
blacksmith in the Arkansas Hills,
falls in love with and marries a re
formed confidence woman. The dull
country life soon palls on her. She ac
cidentally meets her former lover and
pal. Without cause they conspire to
gether to ruin Tom and kill him if ne
cessay The woman calls him while
her accomplice conceals himself. The
father of Tom responds and is mistak
en for the "Young Blacksmith." He
is fatally stabbed by the ambushed
man. Tom, coming out to see where
his father is, is accused by < lie adven
turess and her "pal" of the murder.
He is finally sentenced on tiiat charge.
But his friends ultimately establish his
innocence and he is released. Retribu
tion overtakes his villainous and mur
derous accusers. No play of its kind
possesses a stronger plot or more sen
sational incidents. The serious ele
ment is mingled with comedv, forming
a combination that never fails to touch
a responsive chord in the hearts of
Chinese and Coolie Competition.
Chiua is sending pig iron to the Uni
ted States and is getting ready to pro
duce many other thint;» with the star
! vation wages paid in that country. A
beet sugar manufacturing company is
completing a factory at Harbin to pro
duce 28,900 pounds of sugar each day.
Other factories already in operation.
Can American farmers raise beets and
can Americans produce sugar in com
petition with the Chinese and Japanese
I without protection.
An official report from Trinidad says
that coolies are employed on the es
tates on that island, and that the high

for men and 21 cents for women. The

Democratic Tariff laws have been
tried twice Both times everything
was cheap! Neither time did labor
have the price to buy.—Eaton (O.)
A Kansas farmer bought a lumber
wagon for S6O, in 1894, paying for it
with 000 bushels of corn. He went to
the same dealer for another wagon the
other day, and objected to the price,

bushels of corn, as you did in 1894, and
I'll give you the wagon and a surrey,

Cameron County Should be Well
There is an institution of the State
that has been established exclusively
for the public, and for the benefit of
citizen in the Commonwealth.
It is the State Museum at Harrisburg,
where a collection is being made of
every kind of mineral, animal, bird,
insect flower, specimen of tree, and
historical relic from each county of
Cameron County should be well re
presented in this institution, which is
laying a foundation invaluable for fu
ture years. The purpose of the var
ious divisions of the museum is as fol
DIVISION OF ZOOLOGY.
Where can be seen the animals in
their respective haunts and natural
surroundings; many valuable features
for the agriculturist, where informa
tion may be obtained in reference to
the birds, insects and animals of the
locality that are helpful or destructive
to the crops.
DIVISION OF GEOLOGY.
Since Pennsylvania is rich in miner
als, there should be placed before the
people of the Commonwealth one of
the best State mineral exhibits found
in the L'nion. This should include
mineralogy, paleontology and indus
trial geology. Each county in the
State should be well represented by
its respective minerals, the coals, irons,
oils, clays, glass sacds, building stones,
etc., with maps and charts showing
where located. The educational and
industrial should be closely allied to
be of use to the Commonwealth
There should be maps, charts and fos
sils of the geological era, portraying
the earliest formations known, includ
ing the glacial period, upheavals,
mountain and valley making, rivers
and lakes of the State, with relief maps
and models showing strata formations,
A DIVISION OF BOTANY,
with specimens helpful in learning the
different species of trees, their uses
and their woods; the care of forest pre
serves, as well as the flowers and
plants used for beautifying or for their
chemical and medical qualities. Many
fossil plants of the coal fields of Penn
sylvania are on exhibition at the Mu
seum. With the realization of the
Capital Park extension, it would be
pleasing to see every tree, shrub and
flower native in the State planted and
labeled, as far as practicable, within
' DIVISION OF ARCHAEOLOGY.
Pennsylvania should be well known
by a collection from the contents of
mounds that have been unearthed,
which tells of an early people inhabit
ing the State, antedating the Ameri
can Indian. These implements of his
tory, arts and crafts should be gather
ed at the Musem, that our present and
future generations could have a more
definite knowledge of these early peo
ples. Follow : ng this, the American
Indian collec on should be arranged
and preservei There are several good
collections in heState,now obtainable,
and in a few y iars these may be scat

ranged to show their manner of
arts and crafts in war and peace; mon
uments, implements, inscriptions, rel
ics, dwellings, clothing and food ob

properly shown in its relation to the
other. Maps of their paths over the

Indian names of cities and towns,
rivers, etc., throughout the State
Then follow with the customs and arts
of the early European settlers, and the
implements of their arts, crafts, etc.
This influence was the nucleus around
which the moulding of our early his
tory of the State was formed. The
early publications, German pie plates,
and the hand printing should also be
There are historic relics of war and
p6ace in which the State Is very rich.
Many good collections are scattered
throughout the State, and should find
a home in the museum. There are
also many unmarked historical spots
in each county of the Stato which
should not be neglected. Either the
State or historical society of each
county, should see that these are au
thentically and intelligently labeled,
even if only ultha small bronze tab
let on a boulder, so that they may nut
be lost to posterity.
t'HKFUL AND PINK ARTS

hae produced articles from the looms,!
