—The position of our new Judge on the
vexed question of grauting licenses is plainly
set fortd in an elaborate opinion published
elsewhere. He holds that the true inteut and
meaning of the law in giving the Judge power
grant or refuse licenses, **iu the discretion of
the Court," is to confer "sound judicial discre
t on" in the premises, and "not to give an au
thority which would enable the Court to say
'the discretion of the Court is to grant no
licenses.'for that would not l>e discretion but
arbitrary power, not the judicial opinion of the
Court but the private will of the Judge." In
this his views do hot differ materially, if at
all, from those which governed the late Judge
McDermitt in his action on the question.—
Mercer Dispatch.
—lt is a curious coiucidence, at least, that
the late cold spell was almost contemporaneous
with the January fall moon —confirming a too
njuch-overlookfed observation of Artie explor
ers, especially Kane aud McClintock,_ that
"the lull moon season, with cloudless nights,
is always in correspondence with the lowest
mean temperatures of our meteorological re
cord." That the lull moon, whose surface is
probably heated to more than 212 degrees,
does exert a very marked dispersive influence
over terrestrial clouds is a meteorological tact,
which Humboldt speaks of as well known to
seamen of the Spanish Main and which Her
schel's observations coufirm. Tha fact seems
not to have escaped the fine eye of Coleridge,
who, describing in "Christabel" the attenuated
night cloud, says;—
The moon is behind, and at the full,
And yet she looks both small and dull.
The night is chilly, the cloud is gray.
By the act of the National Legislature of
1867, all wools, hair of the alapaca, etc.,
ported into this country were classified and
taxed as follows:
Clothing wools, such as merino, down cloth
ing wools and wools of like character, such as
are imported from Buenos Ayres, New Zea
land, Australia, Caoada and elsewhere, to be
Class 1, and be taxed ten cents a pound and
eleven per cent ad valorem when valued at 32
cents a pound or less, and 12 centß a pound and
10 per cent, ad valorem when valued at over
32 cents a pound,
Combing wools—Leicester, CoUwold, Down
combings, Canada long, etc., also hair of the
alapuoa, goat and other like animals to be
Class 2, and be taxed 10 cts a bound and 11
cents ad valorem when valued at 32 cents a
pound or less, and 12 cents a pound 10 per
cent ad valorem when valued at over 32 ct*.
Carpet wools, such as Donskoi, Native South
American, Native Symrna, etc., to be Class 3,
and be taxed 3 cents a pound when valued at
12 cents or less and 6 cents valued at over 12
The duty on washed wool of the first class is
double that of nnwashed and the duty on scour
ed wools of all classes is three times what it
would be if imported unwashed.
Wools on the skin were taxed the same, and
wool rags 12 rents a pound, and besides this all
manufactured wool, such as shawls, blankets,
flannels, carpets, clothing, etc, were heavily
taxtd—ready-made clothing, for instance,
be;ng taxed 50 cent? a pound and 40 per cent,
ad valdrem.
The new tariff bill—that passed last March
and which went into effect on the first of last
July—classifies wool about the same as before,
but reduces the taxes or tariff on the first two
classes by omitting the 11 and 10 per cent,
ad valorem duties and reduces the tax on the
3d class from 3 and 6to 21 and 5 cents. The
reduction in the first two classes amounts to
about 3 cents a pound, on an average, and this
is what the wool growers of the country are
at present complaining of. They claim that
the reduction is seriously interfering with tho
industry 3 and in wool-growing or ;
£abT*ing btttte and County Wool-Growers'
Associations with the object of bringing about
the restorations of the tariff of 1867 on foreign
Some of the prominent wool-growers of this
county met in tnis town a few days since and
organized an Association, to be known as the
Butler County Wool-Growers' Associaii> n, of
which Mr. Alex. Hunter was elected President;
R. D. Stevenson and Josiah M. Thompson,
Vice President'; J. E. Byers, Secretary, and
Thomas R. Iloon, Treasurer. The Association
was addressed by Mr. Herriott, Secretary of
the State Association, A. D. Wier, Josiah
Thompson aud Wm. M. Brown, and afterwards
adopted a Constitution, stating the object of
the Association, fixing the time of holding
meetings, etc., apd also passed the following
WHEREAS. The reduotion of the tariff on
foreign wools by the late Congress does materi
ally cripple the wool-growing interests of the
United States, aud threatens the destruction of
our flocks; therefore be it
Renoltrd, By the Wool Growers' Association
of Butler county in convention now assembled,
1. That we recognize the tariff law as it now
stauds to be an usjust discrimination to the
wool.growers of the oountry, and dangerous to
their interests and that it meets our disap
proval and condemoation.
2. That we urge and demand our representa
tive in Congress to "ote and twe hiu influence
to repeal tt,"t present law, and to restore the
tariff of 18t»7 on foreign wools.
3. That we ask only such protection from
foreign importations as will enable us to pro
duce sufficient wool for home consumption as a
4. That we will cordially co-operate with all
kindred organizations in an honest endeayor to
secure these ends and protect our interests.
It was also agreed that another meeting of
the Association would be held next March, the
President to name the date and place, aud that
any one could become a member by sending
his name and one dollar to the Sopretary, J. K.

The wool-growers cannot reasonably expect
any relief froin the preset Congress, as the

new tariffschedule, putting all raw materials
on the free list.

More Valuable than Ever.
We call our readers' attention to the value,
usefullness and direct profit of supplying
themselves this year with the American Agri
culturist, the cheapest as well as the most val
uable journal in tne country. Every number
contains one hundred columns of original read
ing matter, by the leading writers of the coun
try, upon all topics connected with the Farm,
Garden and Household, and nearly one hun
dred engravings made specially for the Ameri
can Agriculturist. The papar, now in its 43d
year, is unquestionably more valuable than
ever before. Each number brings fresh evi
dence that no time or money is considered
where the iatarest ot the paper is at stake. Its
House Plans and Improvements, profusely
illustrated, are worth more than any Costly
architectural works. Its persistent and fear
less exposure of Humbugs and swindling
schemes, is of great value to the whole coun
try, particularly the farming community. In
short it has something good and valuable for
everybody. Owing to a special arrangement
with the publishers, we are enabled to offer the
CITIZEN* and the American Agriculturist for
one year, and the engravings "Foes or Friends?"
and "In the Meadow" for $2.75.

says: John X. Irwin, Governor of
Idaho Territory, has returned to the
Treasurer uf the United States the
draft tor siJftO Pent him as salary for
the quarter ended October 30, 1533,
and has declined also to receive the
salary due him for the quarter ending
December 31. He states that he has

scientiously accept the pay.

Songs Never Sung.
"How does that verse run? Something like this,
isn't it?
'There are who touch the inaitie string.
And noisy fame is proud to win them ;
Ala? ! for those who never sing.
But die with all their innsic in them.'"
"Yes. that's beautiful, pathetic and true," said
your representative. 'The poet aliudes to people
who are some how suppressed, and never get their
full allowance of joy and air. \Y'hi;h reminds me
of a letter shown me the other day by Iliseox &
Co. of New York, signed by Mr. K. <'. Williams, of
Chapman, Snyder Co.. Pa., a prominent business
man of that place. He writes :
"'I have Suffered with asthuia for over forty
years, and had a terrible attark in Decern Iter and
January, 188'.'. f hardly knew what prompted uie
to take Parker's Tonic. I did so, and the tlrst day
I took four (loses. The efleet astonished nie.
That night I slept as if nothing was the matter
with me, and have ever sinee. I have had colds
since, but no asthma. My breathing is now as
perfect as if I had never known that disease. If
you know of anyone who has asthma tell him in
my name that Parker's Tonic will cure it—even
after forty wars,' There was a man who eseupetl
the fate of those whom the poet lament*.
This preparation, which ha& heretofore been
known as Parker's Um«er Tonic, will hereafter be
advertised und sold under the name of Parker's
Ton jC. Inasmuch as ginger Is really an unimport
ant ingredient, and unprincipled deajers ate con
stantly deceiving their customers by substituting
inferior preparations under the name of ginger,
we drop the misleading word.
't here is no change, however, In the preparation
itself, and all hottles remaining in the nandsof
dealers, wrapped under the name of Parker's (lin
ger Tonic contain tlio genuine medicine if the fac
simile signature of Hiscox & Co, Is at the bottom
of the outside wrapper.
