tide. Our prize tighter cau whip
their weight in wild cats.
lr wTt.t. UK good news t'j everybody
in the Doited States to learn that
George VT. t'hills grows distinctly
stronger day after day and that this
great and good man will probably be
spared for greater benefactions aud
ampler works of benevolence in the
OJtEOV TBI reviving sigus of busi
ness activity is seen in the number of
mills which are renewing work. The
entire plant of the Carnegie steel works
at Huimstead is ou double turn, and
other manufactories throughout the
state which have been idle for some
time, have started up.
It will bl reassuring to thoss who
had invested President Cleveland with
iuiperviousnesa to sentiment to know
ttiat he was overwhelmed, with grief at
the funeral of his nephew toward
whom be felt all the affections of a
fattier, (irover is not so bad aa he is
painted by his bitterest Democratic
AD iLLisTi'.A rtoN occlki'.fli yesterday
cf the old saying that "murder will
cut." This is not always true; there
are undiscovered murd rers still nt
large and the number o,f horrible and
mysterious crimes increases contiu
nally. At Lewisburg in this state a
long-veiled crime has been explained
by means of a written confession. Rs
xuorse did the work and not detectives.
TBI RRMtiVTTlOX which was offered
by tne Dm 'cr itic asnatur from In
diana, Tuesday, as n report from the
committee on toreign rrlitious on the
Hawaiian alTiir 19 manilestly a atrad
dle. It evades the qnstion of restor
iog the qoetn but infrrentially sup
ports Mr. Cleveland and bid ambassa
dor there in their position by stating
"that annexation is nowise, and inex
pdietit" aud then to keep up a show of
adhering to the principles of the Man
roe di'ctriue adds that "foreign inter
vention will be regardel as 1111 tin
friendly act " WliPtlier so regarded or
not if the 1 'uited States dues not pro
tect the RennbltonO form of govern
ment there or take Hawaii under its
wing either by means of a protectorate
or by annexation, foreign Intervention
will take place whether it be regarded
as uufrieudly or ths revers. The Ha
waiian Islands are tne key to the Pa
cific, und if we refuse to unloek the
doors and take posiession when they
tender it tn us, England or Germany
will not hesitate to nocept the proffer.
So far as interest in the pu,'ilislic
contest at Jacksonville yesterday con
cerned the principals, it wa much de
creased by the apparent difficulty en
countered by the lighters in g-tting to
gether. The fact that they tiually met
and that one, who, as it chances, was an
individual esp?cially obnoxious to the
Atueric 111 people, was easily whipped,
is of lets coussquenoe. iu itself, thou
the curious performance of guberna
torial opera bouffe which precede I the
iu au abstract souse it may, perhapi,
1 have been a gainer for morals that
preparations for the Aght were sur
rounded by mauy eeemiugly formid
able obstacles, but there is ground for
doubt on this point. The accelerated
impulse given to ring oontssts by Clav
not Mitchell's final break-dowu will
be a serious offset. The serio-comic
spectacle of unarms I militiamen, un
der executive orders, standing idly be
lldl the arena, powerless, after mash
bluster, to make legal interference was
in.st anomalous. It is humiliating to
the better class of American citizens,
and it should hasten t'je day when
every state shall hava explicit statutes
governing crimes of this character.
There is no use trying to stem the
tide of sentiment coed initiatory of
pngilisin. That excess of the "mauly
art of self-defense" which takes the
form of brutal aud bestial animalism
for pay cau never bo m ule tolerable
before civilization anl culture. What
ever the word,. . of temporary statutes,
the moral law against Intemperance
condemns it fully as emphatically as it
condemns the opposite extreme of
physical effeminacy among men.
vVhataver form of sport winch pirmlts
itself to degenerate below th 1 level of
moderate and seemly mauifeatation
will eventually perish uuder the popu
lar fan. And the prill ring undoubt
edly has thus fallen.
Tne isfATi.ATiON of a marriel
woman fifty- five years of age for a boy
cf twenty was so great that wnen she
and her eloping companion were re
turned to their home at Hazslton, the
woman undaunted by her arrest de
clared h'tr purpose to stick to the for
tunes of the youth. There is no ac
counting for tastes as tne woman said
when she kissed the cow, and as this
woman showed when she preferred bar
boy iover to the mature companion
whom' she abandoned.
It is not surprising that the chair
jian of the committee which recom
mended the tax on incomes and whis
key should spring to the defense of the
femur. He has not been asked to de
iend the latter bnt it is to be presumed
The responsibility for the deficit In
the treasury is placod by the Democrats
upon the R -publicans and Jtt the for
ur hava not the smallest bislsupon
j which to justify their statement We
are at peace witn all tuo world, and
there are no special demands upon the
financial resources of the government;
and yet we have an increasing monthly
deficit which is likely to aggregate
from fifty to seventy-five millions by
the close of the current fiscal year
This signifies in plain words that the
revenue is not sufficient to pay the or
dinary public expenses, aud that bauk
rnptcy is to be averted only by borrow
ing. The Democrats insist that they
are not responsible for the situation,
and that it is properly attribn table to
the extravagance and mismanagemiut
of the Republicans.
Now let u sea what truth there is in
this statement; what bisis it has in
fact There was a large surplus in the

Thliie is one characteristic about
Senator Hill which commands the ad
miration oven of his enemies. Ho
fights boldly and makes open procla
mation of his intentions He places
himself in opposition to Mr. Peckuain
and announces his intention to defeat
that nominee's confirmstion More
over, as was said of Corbetr, be is
"confident of success," and the vim
with which he enters iuto the contest
against Cleveland makes an entertain
ing spectasle for all observers,
j 1 a
The uisFosiTiox to take "something''
was so strong among the members of
the Dalton gang that when they failed
to open the safe of a bank which tbey
raided iu Okloboina they stole the
Lank cashier, putting him on a horse
aud carrying him twenty-five miles
into the country, theu compelled him
to make a pedestrian tour back to tbe
place of starting. There is a grim
sort of humor about this which every
body will appreciate exeept the un
happy official whose feet were probably
blistered by tbe time he reaehed the
Thjc interest which is manifested by
our citizens in the building of the pro
posed bridges was shown by the at
tendance and the enthusiasm at tbe
central board of trade rooms Wednes
day evening, when the representative
people of Seranton were present and
decided that circulars containing all
necessary information for the enlight
enment of voters should be distributed
liberally. It is to be hoped that wben
voting time comes, none of those en
titlsd to suffrage will fail to cast their
votes for these new enterprises which
benefit our municipality so much.
It may he tbe financial depression or
the inefficiency of the police and pos-
rated, they say, and then was none of
it left when he retired The country
knows, of course, what became of that
surplns. It was mainly used in paying
off tbe public debt and lessoniug the
burden of taxation. A large reduction
of tariff duties was made to stop the
accumulation of money in the treasury
and the peoplo were benefited accord
ingly. But conceded that Iho surpliii
whs exhausted by nuwis appropria
tions, where does the responsibility lie
and whose fault waa it that such ap
propriations were not prevented'' The
constitution requires all bills concirn
ing revenue to originate in the homo.
Not a dollar can be collected nor ap
plied without its consent and direc
tion. Which party has controlled the1
house during the past twenty years.'
Ouly twice in that time, covering a
period of four years, have the Republi
cans been in the majority. The Diino-
crats have prevailed iu tho lower house
in the other sixteen years, and since
December, 1311, they had absolute
mastery of the financial situation in
the sonsa that nothing could ba done
In that respect unless they sanctioned
Tbey had two ysrs in which to pre
pare tho way for smooth sailing after
the re-election of Cleveland. Why,
then, did they not us their power to
defeat tho alleged extravagant schemes
of the Republic ins and thus keep the
treasury in a sound aud healthy con
dition' The fact is, that tbe appre
prlations made by the oongross in
which Crisp was speaker compelling
the last two years of Harrison's term
were much larger than those in ids by
the preceding one in which R:el was
speaker. The Democrats are lft to
explaiu, therefore, how they cann to
vote away mora nnney than the
Republicans and why they should
not be held reipontlble for the
consniuonces which tbey isld
have come from such Improvidence.
The truth If, Ins inconsistency whioh
had always mlrred the course of the
Democrats was manifested when, after
yelling tbemielves hoarse about "tbe
billion dollar congress" and causing re
actionary sentiment to make the houie
Democratic they immediately set
themselves to work to see how they
could outdo "the billion congress,"
which they had eiecr&tad, aud exaeed
its extravagances. And they did it
just r.s having made hostility to the
imposition of an Income tax tbe chief
plank in their platform, when thi'y
nominated General MoClellan for the
prialdeucy against Abraham Llneolu
for a second term, they now insist, iu a
time of peace, npon that very eitne
measure, than characterise! by them
as odioiiK, but now the chief feature of
thair financial metho Is of relief. The
plans proposed by the Democrats for
the financial lifflcultixs of the country
are ns odious, Inooosttteat and imprac
ticable as were the Duuocratic expen
ditures which originated in the last
Democratic house, thus fixiug upon
them the plain responsibility for the
It is UiitiryiKQ to know that iu the
statemeut of the different large oitltw'
bonded debt, population and debt per
capita the showing ot S -rauton is su
perior to that of any other ssve one iu
this state. It coats every citizen f
this municipality $ HI apiece, distrib
uting the debt among our whole popu
lation, it costs each inhabitant of
Philadelphia $28 99. t coats eaeh resi
dent of Pittsburg $12 02. Wilkis
llarro is favoredand tho lack of iin
provementf iu that city indicates that
taxes ought to be low thoro to the ex
taut of $4.U8 per capita. There is tio
city where taxes exceed ours which
gives evidence of such general prog,
rcss, well paved streets and attractive
uees to the stranger as our own muni
cipality. - - , ..
While in W tikes Barrs Colonel Hnri
(VattortOO chatted with much freedom in
relation to lew.. The sprightly Times tbua
iiuotes him: "So fares tho next bomocra

ihis room, raysel! tnolnded, will be uanied.
History shown that the man for the place
quickly materialized Polk waen't thought
of until within hii weeks of the convention.
Mr. Taylor whv. h year before lie tilled tbe
Chair, called Z.Taylor, ami was not known
scarcely beyond the limits of uis town.
Pierce had uo national reputation and was'c t
dreamed of for the place until within a
short Unix belore his nomination. Much
auan, iu bouorable exile, was lost to view
when his uaimi carried the convention of
Gil. Lincoln. Hayes, Arthur, Unt field,
Harrison and Clevelaud were uukuown, in
a national souse, two years beroro they
were elected. It is three years before an
other president will be chosen and three
years in politics is a generatinu. As I say,
tbeinau who will be named by the Demo
crats ia quite likely to be dwelling in ob
scurity today. 1 think, however, IteKin
ley will be the Republican standard
Asked what he thought of Mr. Cleve
land personally, Mr. Waltersou said : "I
want to say that Urover, personally, is a
good fellow. He is good compauy when
yon kuuw him well, plays a fair game of
poker, takes his whisky Btraight and
temperately and all that. But he seems to
lack foresight, He won't be advisid. He
a bullheaded. He runs away from bis
party. In short, Mr, Cleveland 19 fatal to
his fneuds. "
Some foolish fellow in Luzerne narm
unknown, sorry to say has contributed
.V.o to the Markley wild goose cbae. The
sauio authority from which this vagary Is
ascertained credits the anti-Hsrriiy fund
with fjo.uuo. Uut what 0 that!- Sup

that is, all along the line, or else publicly
assumo tbe role of a great slop-over. By
experience we wonld say he was qualified
for either role; with a possible preference
for the latter.
Dr. Wood, of Muncy, andJ. Henry Coch
rane, of Willianuport, are mentioned as
possible successors to Herring'a senatorial
shoes.iucaso Representative Hitler, one of
tho best qualified men iu tbe district, de
cides to hare nothing to say.
Postmaster Lmery's term expires in
March, and these distinguished Williams
port D.-mnrrats are understood to bo M16
ceptlMe to persuasion when it comes to
filling the vacancy: Uoiooel Embiok, Thom
as Duffy, J. M. Wolf, Major Lnca, W. H.

ticular plum is symbolised at t3,QO0 per
