How. Dakikl Mahmiwo, late Sec
rotary of the Treasury of the United
States, died at his home in Albany,
New York, on the 24th inst. aged 50
years. When President Cleveland
was elected he selected Mr. Manning
as his Be<*retary lor the Treasury,
which position he held until his
health failed, a year or so ago It is
said be contracted tbe disease of
which be died within the walls of tbe
Treasury Department.
I LAMAR'S nomination, for a Judge
of tbe Supreme Court of the United
States, was not acted upon when the
U. S. Senate adjourned. Tbe ques
tion of confirming his appointment
will come up after tbe Holidays, when
Congress re-assembles. It is reported
that two Republican Senators are go
ing to vote lor bis confirmation, and
tbatone of these two is Don Camer JO,
one of Pennsylvania's Senators. We
do aot know how tbis may be, but
hope it is not true. Senator Quay
we are pleased to. learn will vote
against tbe confirmation.
* Tbe funeral services last Satur
day over tbe remains ol Mrs Emma
Neymao, wile of Dr. A. M. Neymau
of tbis"place, were very largely attend
ed by onr citizens and were very im
pressive. In appearance Mrs Ney
mao bad been tbe picture of good
health and hence the news of her
death was a surprise to all No more
forcible reminder of the saying, that
"in tbe midst of life we are in death,"
conld have been given our people
than was presented in ber death.
Sbe was also in the midst of ber use
fulness. Her bereaved husband and
children bare the sincere sympathy
of this entire community in their
great loss.
Mrs. Neyman was tbe youngeßt
daughter of Gen'l John N. Puryiance
deceased, and was forty-nine years
of ago. Tbe funeral services at the
bouse were conducted by tbe Rev.
J. S. McKee of tbe U. P. church and
tbe remains laid to rest in tbe north
—Tbe Christmas festivities in tbis
place far exceeded those of any for
mer occasion. Tbe Cbnrcbes gener
ally, and many families, had their
Christmas tree. We were not able
to see but one ot these church trees;
that 1b the English Lutheran Church,
and it, when lighted np with tapers,
presented a beautiful appearance.
Speaking of Christmas, we see a
sentimeat growing all over tbe country
against Santa Claus playing tbe im
portant part be does in its celebra
tion. Many are of opinion that San
ta Clans ought to be abolished—elim
inated from tbe day. Tbe clergy of
several places baye appeared in pro
tests and say tbe deception on children
should cease, and that it hw a bad
tendency on the religions exercises-of
tbe day. Apparently it baa been an
innocent and harmless deception, but
on tbe ground that any deception is
wrong in itself, Santa Claus will like
ly soon have to go.
New Years day coming will afford
all persons who gave no on gifts on
Christmas, or did nogood on that day
a chance to do something of the kind
on New Years day, and there may
be a good many of sncb.
Congress adjourned last week to
over the Holidays, near two weeks.
This bas been tbe case for years back
and strongly suggests that it is time
to have a change in that matter.
Better tbat Congress should not meet
until after tbe Holidays than to meet
and be in session but a week or two
and then adjocrn for two weeks. One
reason always given is, that the
Speaker may have time to arrange
tbe Committees. Tbis is tbe same
reason given at the meeting of each
Pennsylvania Legislature, with less
reason in fact than the one for Con
gress adjourning. Those committees
instead of being arranged according
to tbe merit of members, are always
picfaed and'arranged according to the
politics of members or with tbe view
to some political action, The present
Speaker of Congress, Carlisle, bas not
as yet announce! the C >.umi t<*es of
tbe Houm'. and will not do so no a* un
til f'ongrcas reassemble* after the
Holidays, Thus is a mouth lost be
fore Congress is even organized. It
is time tbe people eali a halt on this
business, both in State and Nation.
The Teacher's Institute.
ID attending tbe Teachfr'A Insti-I
tn'.M ia this place this week, we could
not help hot note the great change in
it* proceedings aud character from tbe
first one held ia this county. Then,
tbirty-ODe years ago we believe, the
first one, tinder the directiou of Mr.
Isaac Black,the first County Super-1
inteudent elected, WM what would
now b<s called a very "old fashioned"
gfliir. "Reading, Writing aud
Arithmetic," aud to wbich might
perhaps t>e added ' Grammar," aod
how lust to teach tbeai, were tbe
priucipai questions that engaged tbe
tescl.ers' attention. Compared with
tbe exercises now held under
Superintendent Snyder there
ban been a wonder
fol progress made. Then, If we rec
ollect rightly, there were but few la
dies or female teachers present
New they »ecm to prevail in num
bers ID a word, everything in ev
ery department shows an advance
ment only equal to that which has
taken place in our couotry generally
within that time The progress ban
been gradual, aud just bow much
farther it in to go, and where atop, it
\» difficult to now foretell or foresee
tbe "Common School Sys-
Uui" is away ahead uow from what
it wag at tbe outatart is very plain to
•11 old enough to kaow. Tbe even
ing eiercUes now, lectures and re
citals, perbap* indicate tbe greater
departure and progresH from tbe ear
ly Institutes The "Recltala" of the
Meigs Sisters, aod Mr. Underbill, fur
iostsoce, OD Tuesday evening last,
.. were of a blgb order in that line and
*cry different from tbe "Ktcitals" of
tbe Ifrtt' Institutes of this county.
But laws change as well as manners
aud customs, aLd we have to change
with them.
The Question Discussed by the
A bill introduced «n the Senate by
Mr. Reagan to regul&tß immigration
authorize* the Secretary of tbe Ireas
urv to appoint "Insfiectors of Immi
gration," to be stationed at such
ports of entry a3 he may deem proper,
and to receive a saary of per
day. The Secretary is directed to
draft regulations for the lauding of
passengers, and to protect tbern from
imposition. Power is eonfcired ou
the in-pectors of Immigrat : on to board
vessels and remove immigrants tem
porarily for the purpose of ascertain
ing whether they be prohibited from
landing by this act. Ail unfit per
sons are to be kept under the surveil
lance of fhe Collector of a Pom unvii
they shall have been returned to tbe
country whence they came, the ex
pense of their return to be bo.-ne by
the owners of the vessels bring iag
them over. Before any immigraur
shall be permitted to land
the master of the vessel shall produce
a certificate for each immigrant cerM
fying that he is not deported for
crime, is not a pauper, lunatic or id
iot, not jn charge of blocd relation*
or authorized guardians, is not an
assisted immigraut, and not under
contract to labor in the Unite State?.
A bood sball be given as a guarantee
of di»criminated issuing of certficues
on tbe part of tbe steamship company
It is made unhwful for auy perso i
interdicted by the provisions of the
■act to enter tbe Uuiei States, or for
any steamship company to bring him
to this country.
The Seuite then took up the bill
introduc-jd by Mr. Morrill to regu
late immigration, and was addressed
by that Senator in explanation aud
advocacy of the bill Iw main ob
ject, be ?aid, was to have the charac
ter of foreign immigrants examined
first by Uuited S'atea Consuls at the
ports of departure, instead of by
State Commissioners at the ports of
arrival. The foreign idea, he said,
was that the United States invited
free immigration regardless of the j
immigrants; but the American idea
was that it never really offered an
aeylnm to convicts, to irreconcilable
enemies of law and order, or to the
occupants of the Old World's insane
asylums and workhouses. The doors
were left open only to persons of good
moral character. The fact that near
ly 5,000,000 immigrants bad come to j
this country within the last t n year*
proved that the q lestian was ooe of
very great importance. The great
American principle of immigrants
was not proposed to be abandoned;
but that principle has always been on
the condition that the immigrants |
should be of good moral character and i
able to support themselves. Tie re- '
ferred to the fact that recently the
Mayor of the Athens of America hal
presided at a banquet given in honor j
of the champion slugger of the prize
ring; and that, if not the will, at leant
the political necessities of the Mayor
had prompted that action. He said
that, seventy per cent, of th? popula
tion of Boston was composed of per
sons of foreign parentage; eigbtv per
cent, of the population of New York,
aud ninety-one per cent, of the popu
lation of Ch cago, and these figures
might be aggravated by future immi
By the census of 1880 the popula
tion of foreign b rtb aud par*n;age
was 15,000,000, aod the immi/r-ition
since then hud been 4,334.00'), so
that, without including the children
born of foreign parents since ISSO,
there was now in this country a for
eign population 19,430,000, or nearly
one-third of the entire populttion.
This disclosed the enormous a..rac
tive force exerted by this on thu in
habitants of Europe. He had 1 itely
visited Castle Garden, in the pot of
New York, where a vessel h*d just
arrived from Antwerp with 000 iiu
migrants, and the sight he had wit
nersed suggested the doubt whether
this country possessed the trausc;rid
eut power to t ansform all those im
migrants into good and valuable A. u
erican citizens. He qno'-ed the reply of
Mr. Balfour to a question in the II >u-«o
of Commons to the eflTe-t that the
Government would apply no more
money to that purpose during the re
mainder of the year. This, ho said
was a negativo pregnant with sugges
tion. Mr. Balfour bad not said that
parishes or ueigbbora should uot aid
emigration. At the cud of the year
emigration might be aided by the Brit
ish Government again unlssfl the
Fishery Commission should implore
Mr. Balfour to refrain from putting
briars in their path while cunning
diplomacy was going on here.
The paupers of Great Britain num
bered very nearly a round million
outside of uncounted vagrants and
casual paupers, who tar exceeded the
number of so-called paupers. There
was too strong a tendency iu Eucope
to regard the United States as a cess
pool lor the violent products of tha
Old World. Provident husbandry
demanded that Young America
should not be wholly deprived of his
birthright The measure introduced
by him was intended to regulate im
migration by a scheme so moderate
as to receive general approval. it
would, of course, be referred to the
Judiciary Committee He hoped that
the committee would report a measure
to checkmate the gross imposition
from foreign nations to which ibi-t
country has been so largely subjected
He moved that the bill be referred to
the Judiciary Committee.
Mr. Edmonds suggested that the
j subject more prope ly belonged to the
I Committee on Foreign Relations, and
he moved that reference The latti.r
I motion was agreed to
Vindication of Kev. Dr. Hildreth.

Costs in Criminal Gases.
The follow iDg act of Assembly
was pa. e 3ed at the last pe j s:oa of the
I Legislature and approved May 11»,
ISBT. It is entitled:
"An Act, Providing for the pay
ment of costs in crimiuai cases I>y the
. proper Couuty:
• CECTIOX I, Be it enacted. That

everv case of misdemeanor iu any of

The above act so changes tbe law
that now, immediately after a case is
ended,the C.maty is liable for the
costs of tbe prosecution in misde
meanor cases. Heretofore the Co.
was liable onlv in cases of felouies.
Now a county will have to pay tbe
costs in every case in the first in
stance, and subsequently collect them
where it can. The reasou for the
passage of the law was, we presume,
tbe fiCo that iu many cases of misde
meanors parties and witnesses lost
tbe r costs where bills were not found,
or where was a failure to con
vict, or where the costs could uot be
It will also be seen by this act that
the District Attorney has the labor
and duty of certifying to the County
Commissioners what witnesses were
in attendance and necessary to the
trial of a case. The county will only
be liable for the attendance of such
witnesses as the District Attorney by
his order directed to be subp<eoaed.
This places a very important task in
nia hauds aud iu some caßes may be
a very difficult and unpleasant one,
but one necessary for the protection
of the County treasury. It will re
quire him to examine all cases care
fully in order to determine who and
what number of witnesses should be
subpoenaed iu a case. This in order
that be may be able to certify to the
A party cinnot subpreut an
unnecessary number of witnesses, as
heretofore, but in that matter be sub

The 2d section of the act makes it
of the District Attorney
and County Commissioners to use ali
due diligence to collect the costs iu
every case mentioned iu this act from
the party made liable therefor, and
pay the same into the County treas
ury " Hie effect of this act, there

coats of every prosecution at the end

It is English, You Know.
I have never met an Englishman

that British support is not precisely

Good Lecture Promised.
Ilev. Theophilus lloth, of IJtica,
New Vork, will lecture in the Eng
lish Lutheran church of liutler on Fri
day evening next, January 0. Jli-<
subject will be, "An Unfortunate Sub
ject," And from this novel titlu or
name we iijay expect some new or
novel ideas From Itev. lloth's rep
utation as a scholar we think it may
bts relied upon, that while his subject
is "Unfortunate" hy name, yet in
fuct it will bo a fortunate treat to all
who may hear hiiu. Ho is
classed among the elo
quent pulpit orators of the day.
and this with the fact the proceeds of
the lecture will go to the missionary
work of the church shfluid b«cure bin

The t* achers have taken possession
of the town. They have filled the
hotels to overflowing, thej are here
there ind everywhere, and as usual
1 their fact s are all smiles over this,
' their only holidsy. They have a
hard time of it usually and when they
do get out for a recess, they let you
understand they are having a good
; time. Of course they come to learn,
and try bard to do jo and they have
the best of instructors, yet this does
prevent them from thoroughly enjoy
; ing themselves. The boys say that
; ihe lady teachers are especially sty
j lish and handsome this vear, and the
girN tli nk the voung men are nice
looking and have given the town boys
the cold shoulder since Monday.
The lustiiute is a decided success,
> lhe teachers are all more than satisfi
. Ed and praise the iustrnctors highly.
There is not a single weak man
among them. Their talks are all
teeming with new ideas and practi
cal knowledge and are a'l ot the kind
calculated to make the teachers entbu
s:astic in their caliiug. Financially
the liiß'.iiute is also a success The
entertainments and lectures have bad
i crowded houses, and on Tuesday

Tbe thirty-tbird annual session of
the Teacbera' Institute was opened
l,y tbe address of welcome by Jos
L Purvin. Tbe address was plain
aud practical aud filled witb tbe best
of advice to teachers, and was listen
tened to witb attention by all. It
responded to in an appropriate
manner by Prof. Magee, of Prot-pect i
Academy. From then until our
time ot going to pre3B the Institute
bas been addressed almost entirely
by tbe foreign instructors and Butler
county talent is to be listened to
fiora now till tbe close. I)r. Jeffera,
the lirst instructor on tbe program,
is from Limcoln University. His
firnt subject was "How to get the
besiefit of an Institute," and it was
most excellent. nis talks were
maiolv directed at tbe teachers and
catiuot tail to do good. Dr. McCal
lister, of lt'"iver Falls, lectured en
tirely on Civics. Ilis talks were full
of information concerning affairs of
•Slate and Government and many of
bis ifleas were new. He is a torcible
speaker who carries an air of convic
tion with him and would have been
greatly missed by tbe teachers had
be not been here. It was noticed
tbat bis name on the program was
a sure for a gathering of the at
torneys in the Court-room. 11. S
Joues, of Krie, proves to be the fun
ny man, aud it follows that he is tbe
popular one, but bis stories all bare
a moral and his jokes, a point. 0«e
of bis talks was, "Business is Busi
ness," in which he showed tbat a
teacher had to make a regular "busi
ness" of teaching, using every meth
od to accomplish bis purpose. He
tol l one story which onvulsed the
audience with laughter It was
ab >ut a young lady (we believe
she was a school teacher) on tbe
tra'n while coming to Butler. She
came into the cars followed by sever
al other girls, all bunting seats. In
front of Mr. Jones wan an empty one
nod wheu Ihe school teacher came to
it nbf! said, "Hurry, girls, here's a
setting place," and iu their vocabu
lary they sot. Mr Jones had many
comic stories. He read a paper on
electricity out of a dtily newspaper
and discovered, nt the close, that it
wts a pitcat medicine ad. Pres
II: II <jeorg«, of Geneva College,
gitvy the teachers and directors several
energetictemp;iranc3 talks which were
greatly appreciated by tbe Prohibs.
He said thut the teachers by doing
their duty ran briug about buch a
state ol affairs that iu ten }ears no
man w >uld to apply for licenbe
in Butler county.
Prof. W VI. Gibson, of Meadville
has charge of the music aud is giving
muse lovers a treat. Tho songs sung
are well selected and are participated
in hv all the teachers. It is doubtful
whether any class of people conld
bo found who are better
singers than tbe teachers. The voic
es of nearly three hundred teachers
united iu singing that grand song
"My country, Tis of thee" filled one
witb *>ucb a patriotic feeling that we
wished for an opportunity to save the
! country. That was the last verse
though and »'e did not do it. The
singing was eertaiuly grand, far bet
ter than that of any previous insti
tute which wo remember. Tho organ
and the piano, which were admired so
! much, were loaned by Mr. Alex,
r Williams, the music deuler.
W K !>ugan had tbe time table of
bis school on a black board and ex
plained it to tbe teachers on Tuesday
morning. What be said was clear
and practical aud was commended by
several of our beat teachers.
On Wednesday afternoon Jap. M
Galbreath, Ks(| , of Butler made some
clear and sensible remarks upon grad
ing country schools.
Wednesday evening, Hon. It. J.
Horr of Michigan, a short, stout man
with a big head and a big heart, en
te.rtaiiicd und instructed a lurpe audi
enco with a synop«i%of his researches
into tho Capital and Labor problem.
Mr. Horr has a poor opinion of these
agitators who are trying to pull oth
ers down to their own level He be
lis vrs in pulling the weak up to bis
levi 1 a principle that includes the
whole of Christianjty. We will

crackling noise Arising from his
bed he touud himself surrounded by a
glaring light. He gave the alarm of
fire to his family, then throwing the
door opeu fouud that it was his ba-n
that was on tire. The roof was al
ready caved in and he proceeded in
haste to the barn, clad only in his
night clothing, and succeeded in sav
ing all his live stock. By daybreak
tne barn witb its contents of hay,
straw, cornfodder, wheat and rye.aud
harness and many farming imple
nients, together with one stack of
hay standing by the barn were re
duced to ashes.
Mr. Flick is a hard working man,
with not the best of health, and bas
the sympathy of this neighborhood in
this sad loss.
It is believed that the bara was set
