HENRY BEBUH, the founder of the
American Society for the Prevention
of Crcelty to Animals, died iu New
Ycrk oa Monday week, aged 62 He
WHS an energetic, practical philanthro
pist and his life was devoted to good
works. On his labors fur the dumb
crea*i<>u rests bis fame. Alone, in
the face cf indifference, opposition,
and ridicnle, he began the reform
which is now recoguized as one of
the b.*n» 6cent movements of the age.
Through his exertions as a speaker
and a lecturer, but above all as a bold
worker in tbo street, ia the court
room, before tbe Legislature, the
cause be adopted gained friends aud
rapidly iocreased Io Influence. Tho
American society .was iucorporated

The Law Means Something.
Down io Lancaster county,
week, five men who constituted the
election board of one district at The
Republican primaries of laet May,
were convicted of fraud after a hotly
contested trial extending over a whole
week The indictments were found
under the act of 1881 to regulate pri
mary elections of all parties, and the
result is a noteworthy and salutary
proof of the efficacy of a law which
has been looked upon by many poli
ticians as a mere dead letter.
There is no doubt that frauds of
a similar character had frequently
been committed with impunity, not
only in Lancaster, but in other coun
ties of the State, and it was high
time that the tricksters were taught
that the law means what it says
when it denounces cheating at nora
inating elections as an offense to be
punished. The men who set on foot
and carried through the prosecution
cf the ballot thrieves of Lancaster are
entitled to the thank* of good citizens
all over the country fur the efficient
service rendered the cause of honest
The two acts of 1881 relating to
the conduct of primary elections aud
nominating conventions place in the
hands of honest men the meaus of se
curing fair aud unpurchased local
nominations, if those are only enforc
ed They give to the party rules all
the force and tffieacy of statute laws;
they require every elec'ion r.fficer to
take an oath to faithfully discharge
his duties under the party rules aud
public laws; they denounce as (.flen
ses any attempts to buy or sell votes
or influence, and they impose ade
quate penalties the violation ol
ib?se salutary provisions In short,
they hedge about the necessary work
of sel< cting party candidates with
safe-gnards similar to those that sur
round the ballot box at the general
election To secure a fair vote aud
an honest count at the primaries it is
only necessary for any party to adopt
just rules aud intrust their enforce
ment to men who know the law and
feel a wholesome respect for it.—

California in 1849.
The survivors of those who in the
spring of the year 18-; 9 went from
Pittsburg and hereabouts to Calilor
iiia, in qutst of gold, have formed an
organization, to perpetuate the event
and their trials. They were known
us the "Forty-niners," but now call
themselves the "Argonauts," after
those who in the old time weat with
Jason iD the Argo from Colchis, in
quest of the golden fleece. Last week
the "Argonauts" held a re-union in
Pittsburg and only 15, out of the 40U
who left there now 39 years ago,
were present to participate in their
meeting and banquet. Muj. F. C.
Negley of Pittsburg, who was among
those who went from Butler, was
chosen Chairman of the meeting, and
Mr. Henry C. Heiueman represented
this county. Speeches were made in
reply to toasts and the Argonauts
bad a pleasant reunion generally.
They adjourned after resolvtng to
hold their next meeting in California,
to celebrate the fortieth anniversary
of their going there.
The Mills Tariff Bill.
The Democratic "tariff reformers"
protest vigorously that they are not
"free traders," and yet the Mills bill,
based upon the President's message,
and to be made the test of party feal
ty, is constructed on free trade priu
ciples, and proposes absolute free
trade as to many of tho leading pro
ducts of the country. We have re
ferred to some of these products here
tofore and agaiu call attention to
them. As for instance:
Free trade in wool.
Free trade in wood, lumber, and
timber of all kinds.
Free trade iu salt.
Free trade in copper ores.
Free trade in hemp, manilla, and
all vegetable fibres
Free trade in tin plates.
Free trade in Ssh—to secure Ca
nadian consent to tLe fisheries treaty.
Free trade in iron nod steel cotton
ties, or hoops—to please the South
Free trade in vegetables.
Free trade iu over one hundred
other articles of more or less import
Hardly less sweeping and destruc
tive are the reductions proposed in
regard to some other articles.

SAN FRANCISCO, Miirch 10.— The
Ilong Kong J Jail gives a description !
of the earthquake iu the Proviuce of
Yunnan, Dec 15. indicative of fright

tho interior department of Ching
Chan the disturbances were extreme
ly violent, being continued at irregu
lar intervals for four dajs, when they
ceased entirely. The departmental j
city is said to have been reduced to 1.1
mass of ruiiis, scarcely a house escap |

persons are reported to have been kill
ed by falliug buildings. Many of'
them were buried under the ruins,
while the number of injured is too
large for computation. Yamen was
destroyed, the magistrate escaping
with slight injury.
•'At the City of Lamon, tbe effects
of the earthquake were scarcely less
disastrous. At this place, v\ hen the
shock was being felt, an enormous
chasm opened in the earth and water
was thrown out from its depths. At

has been caused iu the appearance of

HUNTINGDON, PA., Maich 20— This
afternoon Judge Furst heard the li
cense applications for this county.
Tho court housw was well tilled with
interested spectators, many ladies be
ing present. The, Court reserved its
decision. Owing to the well kuown
temperance proclivities of tbe Court,
oulj five persons made application !'-ir
license, and it is generally believed
that all will be refused.
Last year President Juijje Furst
was iu favor of giauting a few lioou-

Whiskey and Fighting.
DUBLIN, March 18—At Druralish,
County Longford, on Saturday night,
two factious of drunken St Patrick's
Day paraders, numbering aggressive
ly about 200 persons, became involv
ed in a fierce fight. After the con
flict the former antagonists fraterniz
ed and jointly made a:< attack upon
an inn. Five policemen attempted
to qnell the disturbance and disperse
the mob, but thecrowd set upon tberu
with stones and drove them toward
the barracks. The police turned and
fired six rounds of buckshot into tbe
pursuing mob, wounding a score of
tbem more or less severely. The po
lice then retired to the barracks, upon
which the uiob ;-howered stones until
morning when, becoming sobered und
exhausted, thej withdrew. Bloody
stones were found this morning scat
tered about the scene of the conflict in
great profusion.

Armstrong County Licenses.
The license question in Armstrong
county was settled on last Monday,
by the refusal of Judge Neale to grai.t!
any licenses in the county. This in j
surea a ''dry season" in that county j
during the term of the present Judge j
We commend Judge Neale for the i
stand he has taken ou this question, j
Last year he took the advanced posi- j
tion in refusion every contested ap- j
plication, and had iie granted licenses;
this year in the face of the large op- :
positiou that bad developed, he would j
have shown that he bad not the moral j
courage to stand up for what he be-!

Spelling at No *'6," "Deuny," Mid
dlesex Tp, March 15. 18S8. Owing
to tue roads being somewhat muddy
we did not arrive till the spelling bad
commenced ana been in session about
29 minutes. After spelling for some
5 or 10 minutes more, the teacher,
Mr Graham, called that part of the
program to a close. There were atil!
four boys who iooked as if they were
good for an hour more. On inquiry
we found tbeni to be Rob aud Frank
Stiner, Louis Urboeh and John Fer
guson. \Ye were then given a recess j
of 10 minutes and owing to the '
crowded condition of the house this
was very acceptable There was j
hardly standing room to be bad then
and still mora coming. Amonj; those
present we noticed Messrs. Patrick
and Wilson, two teachers from Rich hind
tp. Allegheny c> Finally we were called
to order and the Literary performances
opened with an overture by the min
strel troupe, which t<> say the least
was grand and kept the audience ronr
insr all the time After that Miss
Sadie Fulton recited the "Bine aud
the Grey," iu a manner which gave
great credit to her. Then followed
the side splitting dialogue,' Our Cous
ins," acted by two boys whose uames
we were unable to iearn. Then we
were treated to some choice reci
tations by Carrie Logan, Emma Fer
guson, Mamie Ferguson, Laura Shep
ard, Frank Stiner, Charlis Truver
aud Mr Graham After this carne
two very comic negro dialogues enti
tled "Ex mining the Bumps," and
"A Darkv in a National Museum,"
acted by Masters lleruiau Truver aud
Frank Stiner, both of whom did well
particularly Master Truver who k'.;pt
the audience fairly wild by his comic
j blunders as the negro comedian. Af
: tor this a readiug entitled "Jennie
! M'Neal's ride," was rendered by M.is

! manner. Then came the hit of the
j evening made by Master Gilbert
j Logan, who for his age can't be beat in
I declaiming, after which came trfvo
very comic declamations, entitled the
; "Yankee iu Love,'' and the "Dutch

; L Urboch.and then a declamation by
•John Ferguson Two very comic
j tableans were acied, "The Ancient

what 1 know about Easter Sunday

landed iu Butler Co., Middlesex Tp
oc the 31st any of March, 1823 It
wus a clear, beautiful sun shiny day
Ou Sunday morning, Easter, there
were 2 feet of snow all over Butler

I will give you a full detail of this
the first time I see you.
I have enclosed vou a sermon
please to print it. Yours Truly,
They sit in the wiuter gloaming,
Ami the lire bums bright between;
Cue has pasted seventy summers,
And the other just seventeen.
They rest in a happy silence
AS the shadows deepen iast;
One lives in a coining future,
And one in a lon,', ID: g past.
Each dreams of a rush of music,
And a question whispered low;
One will hear it this evening,
One heard it long ago.
Each dreams of a loving husband,
Whose brave heart is hers alone;
Fur one the joy is coming,
For one the joy has flown.
Each dreams cf a life of gladness,
Spent under the sunny skies;
And both the hope and the mern'ry
iShine iu the happy eyes.
Who knows which dieam is the brightest?
And who knows which is t!»e be«i ?
The sorrow aud joy are mingled,
liu coiil; the end is rest.
