And now the Mollis Maguire crop in

Wm. P. Wilaon'a republican atatscom

The democrats of Klk county pted a

Howe, tmeblue republican U.S. Sen
ator from Wisconsin, let loose his big
speech against Hayes He sort o'think-
Hayes is a failnre, that he went back on
the republi-wn party, anil that if Pack
ard is not governor of Louisiana then
Haves is not president of the I. S. Ihe
president thinks it is not worthwhile to
have any one reply to Howe. The ques
tion would be, has Hayes a friend in the
Senate on the republican side, to whom
he could apply for a reply. All know
why Jack didn't eat his supper.
Mr. Blair's resolutions to investigate

Dullard was an embexxler and ad
journed from the legislature after hav

but it will not adjourn.
The markets in breadstutfs are already
stimulated by the warlike news from
Europe. On Friday in New York a
brisk demand prevailed for flour, whe2t
and corn. Flour went up sharply, in
most instances 10 to 25 cents per barrel,
and sales are reported to the unusually
large aggregate of about 44,000 barrels.
Wheat advanced 3 and 4 cents.
The New York senate has passed a
Iree pipe line bill. In our state legisla
ture the railroad companies managed to
oil 100 many of the members and de
feated a free pipe line bill. The rail
roads wish to keep a monopoly of the oil
carrying trade and a free pipe line
would interfere and make the price of
oil cheaper.
The Penn'a RR. had another stormy
time Tuesday, 26. at their stockholders
meeting and election.
The stockholders manifested a deeper
interest in the subject of the funding
scheme than they did in the election for
directors, but as regards the latter there
was quite an active contest carried on,
and much scratching was done. The
polls opened at 10 a. m. and closed at 6
p. m. The ticket nominated by the
stockholders' committee was as follows
Thomas A. Scott, Josiah Bac.n, Wistar
Morris, John M. Keuuedy, Samuel M.
Felton, Alexander Biddle. N. Parker
Shortridge. and Henry D. Welsh. This
ticket, termed "the regular." was success
ful. The highest one on the ticket had
voted for him 479.276 shares, and the
lowest 420,049 shares. Thomas Potter
who submitted the minority report on
the funding scheme, received votes rep
resenting 66,652 shares, and A. J. Der
byshire, who was a director last year
and whose name was taken off the ticket
by the stockholders' committee was
complimented with votes representing
The funding plan was approved, the
vote standing thus: For the adoption of
the resolution on the creation of trust,
recommended in the majority report of
the committee, 375,299 shares; for the
adoption of the resolution on the crea
tion of the trust, as recommended in the
minority report of the committee, 105,-
885 shares. The largest number of
shares ever voted at any previous elec
tion of the company was 284,000. Last
year only 125,000 shares were voted.
Now since Tom Scott has had it his
own way, if he will see to it that bis
company completes the Pennsvalley
road, oar people will call him blessed.
If not then there may be some expres
sions in the opposite direction.
The majority report embodied the fol
lowing resolution .•
Rttolctd, That the creation of a trust
having for its object the purchase from
time to time of the bonds and shares ol
other companies which are guarantee!
by the Pennsylvania Railroad Company
and also of the bonded debt of the
Pennsylvania Company, be, and it is
hereby approved ; and that the incom
ing Board of Directors be, and they are
hereby instructed and authorized to take
sacb action, under the advice of counsel
as nay, in their judgment, be lawful,
n jessary, and best adapted to create
* /ch trust, and to accomplish the objects
>sr which it is designed.
The trust plan, says the Post, proposes
setting aside two per cent, per annum on
the capital stock for the purchase of the
bonds and {shares of other companies
which are guaranteed by the Pennsyl
vania Railroad. This will amount an
nually to 11,377,404. x To put the "trust
plan"in another f<3rm, the shareholders
agree to loan the Company one dollar
per share of their dividends annually,
at four per cent, interest, for the purpose
of purchasing through a trust the liabili
ties of the Company. If these securities
can be purchased at fifteen per cent, be
low par, the fund, supposing the securi
ties to yield it seven per cent., will be
increased 184,000,000 in a period of thir
ty years, at a cost, to the shareholders of
136,000,000, for which they would hold
scrip, bearing four per cent interest,
payable out of the trust fund. The cap
ital represented by the guarantees of
the railroad company amounts, accord
ing to the last annual report to $180,516,-
These are the attractive figures of the
supporters of "the plan,'' but on the
other hand its opponents, held it em
bodied the germ of mammoth stock
speculations for the benefit of a favored
few and without profit to the sharehold
ers. Be this as it may the plan is to be
tried. ginwrf - •

least. With an ordinary fair set of men
in power, he would be forced to trial on

majority in the legislature, and party
morality so low. that he will be screen

way the Legislature is wasting time is
shown by the fact the Kenate has ad

Eagle Pass, Texas, March 10.—One of
the guides in the employ of the military
at Fort Clark, Texas, went over to the
town of Uttragosa, Mexico, which i about'
thirty-live miles in the interior, and
there finding some Indians in the town on
a spree, Jojped in with them, and, after
taking a nuiuber of drinks, and loafing
about the town unt.i after dark, he (tho
guide) succeeded in getting of the In
dians out alone, threw his lasso aiou..<J J.:?
neck, and put spurs to his horse, dragging
Mr. Loo the lasso. After getting some
distance, and out of danger, he then strap
ped the dead body on a pony, and brought
it to Fort Clark, a distance of over lifty
miles. The guide, when asked why he did
so, said he was determined to bring in one 1
dead Indian.

The discovery of tho satellites of Mars,
, by Professor Asaph Hull, of the Wash- j
t J
. ington Naval Observatory, was one that
11 had an important hearing on the scien-|
i titic theory known as the Nebular Hypo-,
thesis. It was found that the innerj
-utellite revolves about the planet in MI
shorter time than IS occupied in a revo
lution of the planet on its axes. Marc I
, revolves once in about twenty-four
hours, while the innersatellite complete.-!
f j its revolution in a fraction over seven
] j hours, .s.j nil observer stationed iijjoii
the surface of the planet would see one!
i moon apparently rise like the earth's
* moon in the east and set in the west.
' | while the other moon—the inner ,
' j satellite—would rise in the west and set',
in the east. But according to the Neb-j
. ular Hypothesis, all satellites derive ,
. their motion from their primaries when
thrown ofF from the latter. Their veloci- 1
ty ought, therefore, to be nogreaterthan
' their primaries, but rather less. The
' Nebular Hypothesis supplies nothing tol
account for this motion of the inner .
, satellite of Mars, and tin less other causes l
<-n be found to explain it, that hypo-!
thesis cannot stund.
The force of this objection lin- been j *
' felt by scientific men, and ivnumber of''
conjectural explanations of the anomaly ! i
have been proposed. It is well known (
' that in the case of planets having an ,
ellipsoid orbit the radii are shortened '
f by any resistance met, and that thus 1
. itieir velocity is increased. In order to 1
account for the propagation of the waves I
of light through the interstellar spaces. i|
• physicists have assumed these spaces tol,
be tilled with an ' invisible ether." 11J
has been suggested that this ether might *
offer sufficient resistance to account for
these changes of velocity. This theory 11
was broached previously to the discove- li
ry of the satellites, to account for some t
observed aberrations in the motion of „
Kncke's comet. But it is replied to this
that VP know to° little of this lumini
ferous ether—La very existence being' 1 ;
hypothetical—to draw any .afp ponclu- j'
sions about its effects on the
moving through it.—Moreover, the acH M
celeration in the velocity of Encke's „
j comet is not uniform, but greater inji,
' some of its periodic revolutions than in n

We propose to sell at quite low prices,

Thu Grand Depot ia an inexpensive
building, located in thu very benrtof tho
city, and admirably adapted to the busi
ness conducted in it. Tho expense of lur
rying on business is always smaller where
llio largest "inutility of goods is distribu
ted The economy thus attained iaan im

the rat id turning of goods into Cash, even
though with small profits, new and fresh
stock can always he off- red to our patrons.
These considerations, together with our
unbending purpose to make the bouse al
ways worthy of tho coo lid en ce asked for

liepot to the fair consideration of the buy
