ITABBISBCBI;, December I'.' —The
Board of Pardons, at its meeting to
morrow, will consider a number of
important ca?es, amonj< tLem that of
Miltou Weston, who desires anothsr
hearing, which his counsel believes
would result in the presentation of
arguments causing bia release from
the penitentiary. Weston is unfor
tunate iu having the enmity of the
! widow of Obadiah Haymaker, for
whose death the ex-millionare is sutf- ,
ering imprisonment. Several of her
letters, against a parden are on flle,
one of which arrived yesterday. In
this letter she says:
I come to you again, proving that
you will not grant the pardon of Mr.
Weston. I know you must be weary
of this matter, but I never weary of
pleading the casae of one so uear arid
dear to me, and whose life was so
cruelly taken at the instigation of
this man, Milton Weston. I know
what has been tbe action of the board
in tbe past, and I thank you Kindly
for it, yet I fell I have suffered no
much from this man that I must do
all I can to prevent his pardon, and
that is wbv I plead that you will not
grant his pardon.
Mrs Jamison, of Chicago, has a
letter on file in the pardon department
even more emphatic against the favor
able consideration of Weston s case.
She talks as if tbe wife of the priso
ner had caused great misery in a Chi
cago family by provoking kindaess
to the male head of it, and sbe is
wearing sealskins and other Beery,
while the family indicated is suffering
for want of sufficient clothing.
Tbera have been reports that tba
refusal of the board to recommend
Weston was due to the protests of a
woman whom the prisoner had de
frauded maDy years ago, but there
does not seem to be any founda
tion for them' The board has volu
minous papers presented for its con
sideration a deposition from a New
York woman, who opposed the par
don of Weston because of his treat
ment of her, but her etorv of the
wrongs &te is alleged to haye sutler-:
ed at his hands can have had no ef j
feet on the board, which has refused
recommendation to executive clemen
cv because of the failure to produce ,
testimony not submitted at tbe trial,
tending to show the innocence ol
the prisoner.
The papers filed iu the Weston case
constiute a bulk about three feet in
circumference, and the letters and pe
titions in favor of his pardon, in the
number and character of the persons
who wrote or signed them, have
never been been approached. A Gov
ernor, Judges, United States Sena
tors and members of Congress are .
among those who have atked that the j
prisoner be liberated, in addition to !
nearly 1,500 people of Allegheny j
This overwhemingly demand for j
bis pardon has not bad the desired I
effect,because of tbe absence of suflioi-1
ent proof as to bis innocence to justl- J
fy the board in favorably considering
his case.
The board will to-morrow also hear
arguments in thecaseof David L Kii g
the Clarion county murderer, for the
commutation of his death penalty t>
imprisoment for life.

be among those to be considered by j

Terrible Chinese Disaster.
SAX FEANCISCO, Dec. 15.—Chinese
advices received to-day state that the j
Yellow River overflowed its banks in
the province of Honau, Sept. 20, and
completely inundated the city of |
Cbingebow and ten other populous .
cities. The whole area is now a rag- j
ing sea, ten to thirty feet deep,where •
it was once a densely populated an<f ;
rich plain. The former bed of the j
Yellow River is now dry, and the j
present lake was the bed of the river
centuries ago. The loss of life is in- j
calculable, and the statement is m nlo
by missionaries that millions of Chi- j
nese are homeless and starving, i
Thomas Patou, one of the American
missionaries, writing from Honau ,
province under date of Oct. 28, says: .
'•The newly gathered crops, houses ,
and trees are all swept aw;»y, involv- >
ing afear'ul loss of life. Th 3 country
was covered with a fine Winter braid j
which is gone arid implies complete .
destruction to next year's crop. 'Bread
tread' is the cry of thousands vvhoj
are on the river baDk.
"Benevolent people ijo in boats and
throw bread among the masses here
and there, bnt it is nothing compared
with the requirements. The mass of
people is still being increased by con
tinual arrivals more hungry than the
last. There they sit, stunned, hun
gry and dejected, without a rag to
wear or a morsel of food. Mat huts
are being erected for them. VY bat it
will be in two months I can not con
ceive. The misery is increased owing
to the bitter cold weather."

And crowd in the places
Where presents are bought.

We tilled long ago.

Of genuine, home-made,
Delicious miuce-pies.

A Christmas Meditation.
j>t us go with the to
the manger of our Lord, the Church;
and there we shall find the babe j
wrapped in swaddling clothes, even
in the Holy Scriptures Lei us wijh
Mary, the blessed mother of our Lord,
keep' tbe: words of so great a mystery, j
and, with her, daily pouder them in
our hearte. Let us write cur voices
in soug with those of the angels aud,
give befitting thanks to God for so
great a blessing. Let us rejoice" aud
be glad in one accord with all tbe
host of heaven. For if angels do so
greatly rejoiced for our sake, how
much more should wo rejoice unto
whom ifcU Child is born, unto whom
this Sea is given? If the t hildren of
Israel raised a shout of joy when
the ark of the covenant was brought
into their midst' bow much more
should we rejoice to whom the Lord
descended in our assumed Il
Abraham rejoiced greatly when he
paw the Lord.'who came to him in
human guise put on for the moment,
what should we do, since now lie
bas united to himself •-•ur very uulure
by an unchanging and unchangeable
covenant ?
Let us wonder at the infinite good
ness of God, who, when we couid not
ascend to him, was' himself constrain
ed to come down to u->. Let us won
der at the infinite power of God who
was able to form a most intimate ut-i
--ou between two completely distinct
and widely differing natures —the di
vine and 'the human—so that now
one and the same person is God and
man. Let us wonder at the infinite
wisdom of God who knew bow to
plan a way for our redemption which
neither man nor augels could do. In
finite goodness had been offended;
infinite satisfaction was demanded.
.Man had offended Gud; (satisfaction
was required at the binds of man
But neither infiuita satisfaction could
be furnished by man, nor could
divine justice be satisfied without an
infinite price. Therefore God became
man, PO thut both be who had ainned
made satisfaction, and Ho who is infi
nite paid the infinite price.
Let us wonder at this marvellous
tempering ofjastica and mere/", which
no creature, before God became m ini
fest in the flesh, cuuid suggest; mi
ther after his manifestation could ful
ly understand. L':t us wonder a:
these thirngs. but not curiously pn
into them. Let us desire to look in
to .these things, even though we may
not fully comprehend them. Let u
confess our ignoranco, rathor than
question the power of God.

Phenominal Snowtall in East
ern Pennsylvania.
READING, PA , December, 10. '
The snow storm in this city and
V icini tf yesterday was the heaviest

but were unable to get their trains
through on time. The Now York
mail train was five hours late in gst
iiug to this place. Street car travel
was abandoned. The churches were
so slimly attended that services were
not held m some of them.
West Chester—The snow in this
section was very heavy. A strong
wind prevailed and as a result some
of the rural roads are tilled lull of
snow and are impassibls. The snow

A Brutal Kight.
The prize fight between Jake Kil
rain, an American slusger, and Jem
Smith, the champion of England,
took place on the small island of St
Pierre, in the Seine, France,last Mon
day, beginning at 2 o'clock i' M. aud
lasting till dark, when it was declar
ed a draw.
The fight was witnessed by over
100 persons, none of whom, excepting
the guide knew where the fight would
occur when they left London, and
each of whom p.*id over S2OO to see
10(5 rounds were fought, both men
were badly up. and when it be
came evident that Kilrain was going
to win, although one of his eyes was
closed,attempts were made by Smith's
seconds to gouge out his other eye
and break one of his lingers when sep
arating the two men utter a clinches
and falls.
A four column account of the fight
in Bome of the dailies ends as follow?:
"It would be difficult to imagine
anything more revolting than the con
dition ol the two men at the end of
the fight. It had grown dusky and
the spectators were shivering in the
winter's wind; the two magnificent
athletes of three hours before were
battered almost out of human sein
blance. Kilraiu's right eye was pull'
ed up like a miniature balloon; his
left eye was battered, but still partly
opec; he had a heayy cut across the
nose; his jiw looked lik-3 a piece of
raw beef steak, and bumps oa his
fon'L' ad stood out like egijs. Aco i
tiuu il stream of blood flowed from
his ru'ntear, where it was torn, all
over his body from big abrasions.
Continual sponging could not keep
the blood from uncaring his body.
But bad a-s Kilrain's appearance was,
Smith's was much worse, lie bad
been pounded '-ill his face was batter
ed out of its former semblance His
l;ps had bien cut by early blows of
Kilrain, arid each subsequent suaah
had puffed and Fwolleo them violent

i-ma.ll places and his ear was so swol

shoulders and ribs too, h >re t v idence

which the Yankee had p.uudvd &o
persistently, was knocked clear out of
What Ruined Grevy.
PARIS. Dec. 15 —Now that Wilson
has beeu acquitted, as everyone knew
h<; would be, the explanation is given
of the withdrawal of the two letters
from the prefecture of police, which
resulted in the overthrow of Grevy.
It appears that when Madam Limous
in's pnp' rs were seized, Gragnoti, pre
feet ol police, found two letters from
Wilson among then), iu the first let
ter it was stated that the President of
tbo Republic and he were doing their
best to hive General Thibaudin pro
moted and that, although they were
not successful as yet, they were not
This letter brought Grevy into the
scandal The Prefect of PUI'CJ took
these letters to the Klysee and showed
them to the President. He WHS dis
i aed humiliated at tha use
tn.dj of his naiti'i by Wilson, and, in
a fj" i f impa'-i'Mice, threw the letter*
in*o the fire Afe v days later the

withdrawal could not be concealed.
It wns tin a tl.n*. G'evy himself di
rectf-d his son-in law to rewrite the
letters, leaving out his name.
If it, hid not been for the water
mark in the p»p"r this substitution
could not have been proved As the
e.i-e stood, any pro.-ecqtion of Wilson
would also havo involve I the pros ra

What ibe English Papers Say ol
That the message is locked upon as
a free trade document we present the
following extracts from English pa
pers The Morviny Pop I, London,
England, scy.-:
"TLe Message will produce a pro
found i-ensation in Europe, as well as
in America and will strengthen the
free trader's cause throughout the
w >rld."
The London Daily AViiw pay-:
"Seldom has en American President
La i a more important or impressive
lesFon to teach. The fact is, that al
though President Cleveland makes a
pretense of shutting his eyes to it.the
policy of protection his been reduced
to a practical and theoretical absurd
ity. The stone now set rolling will
uot stop until the idol of protection is
broken in pieces."
TVC doubt if there is or can HE, a specific
remedy for rheuinati:.M ; but thousands who
have suffered its pains have been greatly ben
efited by Hood's Sarsaparilla. IF you liavo
failed to find relief, try this trreat remedy.
'■ I was afflicted with rheumatism twenty
vears. previous to V- A I found no relief, but
itrew worse, and at one time was ALMOST help-,
lens. Hood's Sarsaparilla did me more good
than all the other medicine 1 ever had."
11. T. BAI.COM, Shirley Village, Mass.
'• I had rheumatism three years, and got no
relief till I took Hood's Sarsaparilla. It has
done (.Teat things for me. I recommend It to
others." J.KWIH BUUUANK, lliiideford. Ale.
Hood's Sarsaparilla Is characterized by
three peculiarities: Ist, the combination of
remedial agents; 2d, the proportion; ad, the
process of securing the active medicinal
qualities. The result is a medicine of unusual
strength, effecting cures hitherto unknown.
Send for hook containing additional evidence.
e Hood's Sarsaparilla tones up my system,
jxinfles my blood, sharpens my appeiite. and
{teems to make me over." J. I'. RNOMFSOJI'.
itegister of needs, Lowell, Mass,
"Hood's Sarsaparilla beats all others, and
Is worth its weight in gold." I- U.viutiMi'ron,
LOO Bank Street, New York City.
