A Great Week for Republicans.
The week that has witnessed the final
and complete success of Speaker Reed s
courageous campaign for the rule of the
responsible majority in the House will long
be remembered by American statesmen.
Ordinarily little interest is taken by the
people in parliamentary discussions and
struggles, but the fight for the new rules
has been of such a character and the per
sonality of the Speaker has been so com
manding that during the whole of the long
and close struggle the newspapers of both
parties and in all sections have given
every phase of the contention and the sub
stance, at least, of every important debate.
The narrowness of the Republican ma
jority in the House and the danger that the
meager margin might be lost by the illness
or death of a few Republican members add
ed to the anxiety of Republicans every
where, and the number of contested seats
to be decided was an additional element of
excitement and interest. The Southeastern
democrats were determined to keep seated
the notorious beneficiaries of fraud or vio
lence, or both, and Mr. Carlisle was ex
pected to furnish parliamentary tactics and
expedients for resisting the investigation of
the frands and outrages that bad con
tributed several democrats to the House
with certificates as regular as their claims
to seats were audacious and dishonest.
Altogether the outlook at the beginning
of the session for the success of the Re
publicans in adopting the new rules and in
unseating democrats who had no riglil to
their seats was far from cheerful. Had the
Republican Speaker lacked any one of the
qualities that he has shown himself to pos
sess in so high a degree,the majority might
have been baffled by the minority, and the
House might have been in no condition to
to carry out Republican policies and to
snpport a Republican Administration.
For this great emergency Mr. Reed was
the man of all others. His robust charac
ter, his intellectual stalwartness, his cotn
manding personality, his easy equality to
all the exigencies of debate, and. above all,
his open and convincing advocacy of the
tight of the majority to rule and to do busi
ness made him as much the Republican
leader for the House at this particular
juncture as Grant was for the Army of the
Potomac, when tbe time had come for the
"continuous hammering" of Lee's army.
And in Major McKinley, Mr. Butter
worth, Mr. Cannon and other able parlia
mentarians, the Speaker has had Lieuten
ants as brilliant and successful as they
have been courageous and ready.
The Republicans now have the entiro
governmental machine in good working
order, and we expect the greatest and best
results. —New York Mail and Exprcsn.

THE new rules were adopted by the
House al Washington last Saturday. Tho
changes in the proposed code from tho
former rules of tbe House arc found in
eighteen rules, and in most of those the
changes are merely formal, being in tbe
main matters of rearrangement and phrase
ology. The really material changes,
therefore, from the old codo are compris
ed within four or five rules, and the essen
tial point for which tho Republicans
fonght, and which they have won, has
been to avoid dilatory motions and ob
struction to public business.
ONK of tbe puzzling and singular features
of modern civilization is the fact tint
crimes committed in communities where
the intellectual development is high are so
frequently horrible in their details. Sta
tistics are not wanting to show that crime
is lessened by education. But now and
again in localities where the people are of
the highest type of civilization we have
murders of a blood-curdling description.
It is as if the strong repressive influence of
education intensified the depravity of the
criminal, who, once ont of restraint, socks
to exhibit tbe worst phasesof human charac
ter by way of contrast with the best. The
Bawtelle murder in New England is an ex
ample of this type. The headless body ol
the dead man has been found in Lebanon.
Me., with a bullet piercing the heart. The
evidence is almost absolutely conclusive
that he was killed by his brother for his
property and that the unnatural kinsman
afterward deliberately purchased a hatchet
with whieh to decapitate and destroy the
identity of the victim. The revolting de
pravity of the crime is no less striking than
the cold-blooded calculation with which
it was projected and accomplished. An
abnormal fiendishness seems to hare pos
sessed the murderer, iudfoativo either of a
disordered intellect or a degree of de
pravity which is marvelous in the highly
civilized communities of New England. It
is for psychologists and sociologists to
reconcile the existence of two such oppo
site forces in the same locality on any
other theory than that of insanity.

Quay and Dalzell.
A dispatch from Washington to the
Pittsburgh Dispatch, dated last Monday,
said :
There is evidently a political sensation
of no mean proportions coming as a sequel
to Senator Quay's very latest move in
antagonism of Congressman Dalzell. of
Pittsburgh. It is now a settled, undenied
and undeniable fact that the fight between
the two will be most bitterly renewed as
soon as the Senator returns from Florida.
There will not only be the worst personal
row that has yet occurred between these
two statesmen, but the entire political or
ganization of Western Pennsylvania nillj
be involved, and peace will not be de \
clared until one or the other faction is
Just before Quay went to Florida
I'residcnt Harrison settled one phase ol
the contest over patronage between Quay
and Dalzell in a rather novel manner.
' Each of these gentlemen had a candidate
for Census Supervisor of the Pittsburgh
district. The President wanted to ap
point Dalzell's man, principally because he
was the choice of Census Superintendent
Porter. He did not dare to displease the
Senator, however, so he hit upon the
unique plan of making two districts out of
one and appointed both candidates.
The President then congratulated him
self on having escaped from this delema.
He is not free, however, by any means.
Senator Quay has telegraphed to tho
Senate to have the nomination of George
Oliver. Dalzell's Census Supervisor, hung
up, intimating that he would oppose con
firmation on his return.
Mr. Dalzell was very angry when he
learned of this to-day. but dot not think
it wise to talk for publication now.
One of the Pennsylvania Congressmen
said this afternoon that this last step of
Quay's meant war to the knife between
Quay and anti-Quay factions of the Re
pnblican party in Allegheny county. It is
Quay against the field, and the fight will
be fought to a finish. The Chris Magee
wing of the party will join Mr. Dalzell and
his followers, and an attempt will be made
to down Quay before next year's election.
Russia's Shame.
LONDON, Feb. 16.—1t now appears that
the outrages committed in the political
prison at Kara, in Eastern Siberia, were
even blacker than at first painted. Cipher
dispatches have been received by Russian
refugees in this city from exiles in Siberia
which relate the outlines of the story and
give details which make Russia's treat
ment of her prisoners stand out the most
infamous of the cruelties of the century.
The letters state that Mme. Sigida did
not commit suicide, as was at first reported,
but died from the effects of the flogging
she received in November last. The un
fortunate woman was lashed until she lost
unconsciousness. She never recovered
from the terrible beating she received,
dying two days later. Three of Mme.
Sigida's fellow prisoners, Marie Kaluzh'
naya, Marva Paoloona Karalefskaya and
Xadezhda Smirnitskaya. unable to bear
their cruel treatment any longer, and
probably dreading the same end that be
fell Sagida, took poison, which they had
concealed for just such an emergency, and
ended their lives.
Marie Kaluzhnaya was arrested in IHB4
when 18 years of age on a charge of dis
loyalty. She was compelled to sign a
document, by means of which some ol her
friends were sentenced to penal servitude.
She attempted to assassinate Colonel
Katuski, and was sentenced to penal servi
tude for twenty years. Mnie. Karalefs
kaya was a married woman, 35 years of
age, the daughter of a well known landed
proprietor in South Russia. In 187!) she
was sentenced to thirteen years' imprison
ment for joining a secret circle. Nadezhda
Smirnitskaya was sentenced to penal servi
tude for fifteon years.
Shortly after the death of Mine. Karaiefs
kaya a brother of hers die.l suddenly, and
it is said that he also poisoned himself.
Another exile named Hobokov committed
suicide rather than submit to the humilia
tion of a flogging. The cruel flogging of
Mine. Sihida occurred under orders issued
by Lieutenant General Baron Korff, the
Governor General of the Amour province.
These orders directed that the edict of
March, 1888, signed by the Director Gen
eral of Prisons, should be mercilessly en
forced. This edict decrees that political
prisoners shall be subject to the same rules
as criminals. The outrages are thus due
to the direct orders from the central gov
ernment at St. Petersburg. It is probable
that three other young women, who were
imprisoned at Kara when George Kennan
visited the prison, have also committed
Humiliating Gen. Osborne.
HONESDALK, I'A., Feb. 17.—The Wayne
county Republican convention was held
today and indorsed for Congress M. B.

Senate with power to appoint their own
conferees. Susquehanna has indorsed Lines

men controlled tho convention, however,
and made the defeat of Osborne as humili
ating as possible. A resolution was offer
ed hi' tho delegate from Bethany, General
Osborne's birthplace, pledging the couuty
to Delamater and Watres and giving bind
ing instructions to the delegates to vote lor
them. The resolution was adopted with
out a dissenting vote. Osborne's friends
expected tho Wayne delegates to be for
him, and the result is a very severe dis
Poisoned by Poke Root.
SHARON, PA., February 18. —The twin
sons of Mr. Robert Stambaugh, living a
short distance east of town, ate a quantity
of poke root yesterday, which their father
had gathered to uso as house medicine,and
but for the prompt action of Dr. J.ll.Reed,
would have succumbed to tho effects of
tho poison. The little fellows, who are
probably sor 6 years old, saw Mr. Stam
baugh dig the root, and taking it for sassa
fras, ate the small pieces strewed on the
ground. This was about 4 o'clock in the
afternoon, and the poison began to show
its effects two hours later. Tho children
were taken violently ill, and confessed to
eating the root. This served to excite the
fears of the family, and a physician was
soon summoned. Both boys were still
very sick last night, but will brobably bo
around in a few days.

Tried it on the Cat.
PIKKVILLE, KT., February 18.—Ellison
Mounts was banged at this place this eve
ning for participating in the murder of
Miss Alafair McCoy and her brother.
Mounts was a*.member of the celebrated
Hatfield faction. The prisoner took his
seat on his coffin in a wagon, the guards
surrounded the vehicle and the death
march commenced. Only a few minutes
elapsed after reaching the scaffold before
the execution occurred. Death was in
stantaneous. The scene was witnessed by
thousands of people, many others being ab
sent through fear of an attempt to rescue.
The body was given to friends and will be
interred in the mountains of West Vir
ginia. After the execution the officers
discovered a plot which, if successful,
would have resulted in the escape of the
prisoner, and the probable death of a num
ber of the guards of the jail. Through the
confusion of the jail cook the disjovery
was made. The details were as follows :
The Hatfields had paid the cook S2OO
to place a drug in the food of the jail
guards. Tho night before tbe execution
the cook was told that the drug
which was given her was merely
to make the guards go to sleep.
She became suspicious and concluded to
try the effects of the preparation on the
jail cat. The result was the instant death
of the animal in ho:nble agony. She theu
became alarmed, and refused to put the
poison into the food. She did not com
municate her intentions, however, to the
outlaws, and they were gathered near the
jail to await the signal which would indi
cate that all the guards were sick within.
Had this wholesale attempt at murder
been successful, not only the prisoners in
the prison would have been killed from
tho effects of the poison, but aiso tho Sher
iffs family and posse. The drug was found
to be strychnine. The cook was immedi
ately arrested. All the outlaw gang have
fled to the mountains of West Virginia,
where it is sure death to officers wjio fol
low them. All these lawless persons who
are responsible for this outrageous affair
are from West Virginia. The Sheriff is
having the necessary papers arranged to
secure requisitions for the would-be mur
derers, and every effort will be made to
bring them to justice.
Missouri's Liquor Crusade.
The Missouri women who have been
breaking in saloon doors, emptying the
beer kegs and whisky flagons in the gutters
and smashing the bottles so as to destroy
their contents are an exaggerated of
the praying bauds that entered on a liquor
crusade in Ohio and Indiana several years
ago. That crusade aimed at moral suasion,
whereas this new movement is one of
physical force exerted by the supposed
gentler sex. The gallantry of mankind to
womankind, which has been bred by
eighteen centuries of Christianity, protects
the Missouri women in their assaults on tho
property of saloonkeepers,but it is doubtful
if their movement will result in any sub
stantial or lasting benefit to the cause they
seek to promote. The crusade was for a
time successful, bit women gradually
found household cares demanding their
attention, and so it came to an end, and a
reaction set in which gave saloon keepers
greater immunity from public or legal in
terference than ever before. The legal
authority is being invoked in Miss mri, and
the calm administration of justice is quite
likely to land some of tho Amazonian war
riors against liquor in jail. They may have
much sympathy in their purpose to rid the
communities in which they live of the
liquor curse, but if jail doors close on them
they will realize that their violent methods
haye been unwise. The country is not yet
ripe for a successful physical rebellion
against liquor selling.—New York I'rcss.

It is self evident; you can't go wrong on

metropolitan hotel the other morning, and
watched a loving couple of is sort eat—
or pretend to eat. A bald beaded man
with a grizzly-grey mustache and puffy
bags under bis eyes, also took in the scene.
The young fellow and bis wife ordered a
sumptuous breakfast, and they ate it in a
furtive way as If one wasafraid the other was
watching. Ho would reach over and help
her to a supply of this, and she would in
sist that he should take some of that, and
they would stop in the middle of their eat
ing and regard each other with such ten

grew red in the face and shoveled in hot
cakes as if he had no fear of dyspepsia.
Once the hands of the Pwo touched as they
reached across the table and her face flush
ed and he looked sheepish and they forgot
to eat. When they had finished breakfast
they left the dining-room arm in arm, and
the fat man followed them with bis eyes,
tugged at his stubby mustache and said in
a low, hoarse voice, "Gosh!" Then he
looked up and caught Gossip's eye and

To the Congregations tinier the Inspection
of the United Presbyterian Presbytery
of Butler:
DEAR RRKTHEIK: The undersigned
were appointed by Presbytery at its late
meeting to address von a fraternal letter
on the subject of Christian liberality, hav
ing special reterence to that liberality that j
should characteriie you in the support of
the benevolent enterprises of our own ;
church. The appointment of the commit- j
tee implies that in the judgment of Pres |
bytery there is a lack in her congregations, j
in thi.s particular, and the deficiency gen- j
erally among the congregations to make up j
the full quota to the several boards, as
levied by the General Assembly, proves
most conclusivelv that this judgment is
well founded, and. brethren, snch should
not be the case. _ ,
Congregations should be liberal in the
support of ordinances at home. They
should mind their own things, and unless
they do so they will not prosper, nor need
thev expect much of the divine blessing.
But the minding of their own things is not
enough: as the apostle directs. "They
should look also on the things of others." •
Our church is doing a good work in
foreign lands. In Egypt and in India the
labors of our devoted mißsionarie.i, both in
teaching and in preaching the gospel, h .ve
been crowned with remarkable success and
still a great door, and effectual, is opened
np to ns in these far-off and benighted
countries, and the cry of their perishing
tr ;, lions to ns is, "Come over and help us.
Some of the young men in our Theolog
ical Seminaries have already responded to
this call and others have expressed a will
ingness to respond. The only obstacle to
their so doing is lack of funds. In con
sequence of this, many of these young
soldiers of the cross who are ambitious to
carry the glad tidings of the gospel to the
heathen are compelled to remain at home.
We have also inviting fields, fields that
are white and ready to harvest in the
Western States and territories in our own
land, and we have some such fields in por
tions of the East, and our work in the
interest of the freedmen of the south is ia
a most flourishing condition, and we trust
our efforts on the Pacific Slope in behalf of
the Indians and Chinese are not in vain in
the Lord.
Had we ample funds at command, home
as well as foreign work could and would be
prosecuted with much greater vigor aud ef
ficiency than what it is.
With a view to improvement in the mat
ter of Christian liberality within our
bounds, wo would suggest that giving be
regular and not at long intervals. "1 pon
the first day of the week let every one of
you lay by him in store,'' and farther we
suggest that it be proportionate, every one
giving as the Lord hath prospered him.
Contributions to benevolent objects should
not be confined simply to the heads of
families. Children should be trained to do
this also, and if so trained, when they at
tain maturity they will esteem it a pleasure
and not consider it a burden to give, and
this giving devolves upon the poor as well
as the rich. No one is therefrom.
Hence, as quoted. "Upon the first day of
the week let every one of you," <£e.
Our liberality towards the Lord's cause
should not fall short of the one-tenth of our
income. The Jews were r«quired to give
this. Abraham gave it, and Jacob promis
ed to give it centuries before Moses was
born and hence like the Sabbath it is not a
mere Mosaic institution. It rests on a
more staple basis. And in New Testament
times Christ sanctioned the tithe system,
when he approved the conduct of the
Pharisees for paying tithes Mat. 25:23.
And if the tenth was exacted of the Jews
who were not required to carry the Gospel
beyond their own borders, nor the other*
save their own people, surely it is not
reasonable to suppose that the less would
be required of the Christians now, who are
commanded to go into all the world and
preach the Gospel to every creature.
-jAs motives to Christian liberality permit
us to submit to your prayorful considera
tion the following:
(1) Such liberality will eminently re
dound to the interest of those by whom it
is exercised. That it is a commanded duty
no one will deny, and siuce in the keeping
of God's commands there is a great reward,
obedience iti this particular will certainly
be promotive of the result indicated.
Again, by the exercise of this grace,
Christ is honored,and them that honor Him
He has promised to honor—honor them in
this life and in that which is to come, and
thereby, also, a wholesome restraint is
placed upon a selfish and worldly spirit,
which is both needed and beneficial.
As far as the giver is concerned he will
always realize, "That it is more blessed to
give than to receive."
(2) The claims of the needy and perish
ing should prompt us to this. The human
family form one great brotherhood. "We
have all one father, and one God has creat
ed us. This is true in regard to Jew and
Gentile, barbarian and Scythian, bond and
free, aud hence when we see any portion of
this brotherhood (of which we ourselves
form a part) in need or perishing for lack
of knowledge, we should lend a helping
hand with a view to relieve them. A fail-,
ure to do so, or to shut up the bowels of
our compassion under such circumstances,
would be both criminal and cruel.
(3) Christ's claims upon us should con
strain us to the performance of this dut}*.
These are many and potent. For the sake
of brevity, we will simply say to you on
this point, as Paul said to the brethren at
Corinth when he wished to stimulate them
to increased liberality, "For yo know the
grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though
he was rich, he became poor, that ye
through iiis poverty might be rich." He
has done great things for us, whereof we
are glad, aud when he asks us to honor
him with our substance, and send portions
to them for whom nothing is prepared, we
should noe decline to do it. By our con
tributions as well as by our personal efforts
and prayers we may be instrumental in
adding fresh jewels to Immauuel's crown,
aud surely his claims should prompt us to
r this, and that iu a measure that will com
mensurate with our means. Otherwise
we will bo guilty of the crime of robbing
the Master, a crime that does not escape
His notice. Ilence, He said to the Jews,
"Ye have robbed me iu tithes and offer
(5) We have the pecuniary ability to
abound in this grace of Christian liberality.
It is true, the congregations within the
bounds of this Presbytery are perhaps not
among the wealthiest in the church. Pro
bably there is not one millionaire among
them. Still they possess a fair portion of
this world's goods, and in this respect are
on an average with their brethren in other
Our soil is reasonably productive. Our
mineral resources are very abundant, and
a portion of our territory, at least, is un
surpassed in its yield ol gas aud oil. God
in the ordering of his all-wise providence
has given us largely of these natural prod
ucts, "u.nd to whom much is given, of
them also shall much bo required." Hreth
ren, the church at large is untrammeled at
the present time, as regards tvangelistic
work. At home and abroad she finds an
open door, and of no branch of the church
can this be affirmed with more truth than
of our own, uiid on none rests a greater re
sponsibility for helping forward the Lord's
cause in the world, and hence we, as a
Presbytery, should do our part towards
me;tiug this responsibility, a d alsoj in
the way of aiding our institutions, both
literary aud theological. Brethren, we
fondly hope aud pray that our congrega
tions will evince such a measure of liberal
ity towards tiiese laudable objects, that
it can, in truth, be said of each of them,
"She hath done what she could," aud
when this attainment shall bu made the
treasury of the Lord will be tilled to ovcr
tlowiug, and as a consequence the good
seed ot the World will be more generally
diffused iu those places which now consti
tute the sphere of our labors, and we can
open up new fields iu destitute regions,both
at home and abroad aud thereby be instru
mental, at least in a measure, iu hasten-'
ing the fulfillment of that cheering prophesy
found written iu Isaiah : "The people
that walked iu darkness have seen a great
light; they that dwell in the laud of the
shadow of death upon, them hath the light
shined." And what a glorious time will
this be "When the earth shall be filled
with knowledge of the glory of the Lord,
as the waters cover the sea." "And they
shall not teach every man bis neighbor,
and every man his brother, saying, know
the Lord, for all shall know me, from the
least to the greatest." The Lord hasten it
in his time.

Adkx, Feb. 18.—An awful scene took
place on board the Peninsular and Oriental !
company's steamship Victoria, homeward J
bound from Australia, when midway b.-- j
tween Colombo and Aden, a male pas- |
senger leaped overboard- The engines
were instantly reversed, and a boat was
ordered to be lowered. As the crew obey
ed the order the forward davit tackle slip
ped from the hands of the boatman who
was overhauling it, and the crew number
ing thirteen fell into the sea.
A second boat was instantly lowered
with a crew of eleven, this latter was
lowered in perfect safety, and succeeded in
rescuing eleven of the unlucky thirteen,
the other two, together with the unfor
tunate suicide, were devoured by sharks in
full view of the horrified passengers.

Purify the Blood.
TVe do cot claim that Ilood's Sarsaparilla It the
only medicine deserving public confidence, but
we believe that to purify the blood, to restore and
renovate the whole system, It is absolutely
unequalled. The Influence of the blood upon
the health cannot be over-estimated. If it be
comes contaminated, the train of consequences
by which the health is undermined Is immeasur
able. Loss of Appetito, Low Spirits, Headache,
Dyspepsia, Debility, Nervousness and other
"little (?) ailments" are the premonition! of
more serious and often fatal results. Try
