SECKETAKY BLAIW'S answer to Minister
Rudini was made public yesterday morn
ing. He goes over the indemnity matter
and says the justice of such a claim is yet
to be settled, quotes Webster's position in
1851 regarding » mob that attacked the
office of the Spanish consul in New
Orleans, quotes from the treaties and says
our Courts are open to all for redress, and
ends as follows:
If, therefore,it should appear that among
those killed by the mob at New Orleans
there were some Italian subjects who were
resident or domiciled in that city, agree
ably to our treaty with Italy, and not in
violation of our immigration laws, and who
were abiding in the peace of the I mted
States and obeying the laws thereof and of
the State of Louisiana, and that the public
officers charged with the duty of protect
ing life and property in that city connived
at the work of tne mob, or, upon proper
notice or information of the threatened
danger, failed to take any steps for the
preservation of the public peace, and after
wards to bring the guilty to trial, the
President woald,under such circumstances,
feel that a case was established that should
be submitted to the consideration ot Con
gress with a view to the relief of the fami
lies of the Italian subjects who had lost
their lives by lawless violence.
Accept, sir, the renewed assurance of my
high consideration. JAMBS G. BLAISE.
The reply is considered an able one, and
not likely to aid Rudini in his local
politics. >
Harrisburg Notes.
In the Senate, Thursday, bills enabling
teachers to secure permanent certificates
withont the recommendation of Directors,
if they have taught six successive terms;
requiring school directors to be sworn, and
extending the jurisdiction of the Court
over them; prohibiting soliciting candi
dates to buy tickets, etc., passed finaUy.
The Senate refused to confirm some of
Governor Pattiaon's nominations, because
he had not issued commissions to Librarian
Egle, Superintendent Waller and Inspector
Martin. The bill regarding actions in
assumpsit by joint owners wis reported
negatively. The Kemble re imbursement
bill was passed finally; also the bill requir
ing insurance oompanies to pay an annual
bonus to the fire companes.
In the House the apportionment and
appropriation bills were under consider
ation, the Judiciary Gen. Committee
listened to arguments on tho Pittsburg
street bills, ana it was noticed that the
"lobby" had disappeared.
The latest senatorial apportionment bill,
makes Butter county and a part of Alle
gheny county a district.
A hundred appropriation bills, aggregat
ing eleven million' dollars, were dumped
into the House by the Appropriation Com
mittee last Friday.
In the House, Monday, all the appropri
ation bills were read for the first time.
Senator HaH, of Elk, introduced a reso
lution providing for the appointment of a
committee of six to confer with the mana
§ers of all the denominational schools in
le state in order to learn of some feasible
plan whereby ail such schools could .be
brought under state control —a pretty big
On Tuesday the Baker Ballot-Keforvr.
bill passed the House finally by a vote of
171 to 16, and the constitutional conven
tion bill came oat of committee same day
and was given its old place on the calendar.
As amended it provides for 130 delegates
—2 from each senatorial district, and 30 at
large, no person to vote for more than 15
of them; one Besaion and SIOOO salary. The
delegates are to be voted for at the next
general eleotion and at the same time the
people are to vote as to whether or not
they want a convention.
The Xesbitt bill creating a board oi tax
revision was defeated in the House that
On Wedneaday the wholesale liquor bills
were under discussion in the Honse, and
some amendments to the present law were
agreed to; and in the Senate the Tax bill
was up.
The new tax bill is now before tho
Senate. It is essentially a farmers' bill,
and this naturally arrays the city members
against it. By it the old tax laws are not
changed, bnt several new sources oi
revenue for local purposes are created.
In the first place railroads, telegraphs,
telephone, ana pipe line companies will
pay to each county 4 mills on the dollar
of thir valuation within such county. All
"moneys and credits," meaning moneys
loaaed, etc., will be taxed 2 mills, for
school purposes, and in addition a tax of
ten mills will be imposed on the gross
earnings of all private and unincorporated
banks. The several classes ef taxable prop
erty named by the proposed law are as
Class 1. Real estate, not included in
class 2, including leaseholds and personal
property not. included in classes 2 and 4.
Class 2. Real estate and tangible
personal property necessary for transacting
the business of Railroad and Telegraph,
Telephone, Pipe line, etc-sompanies.
Class 3. Honeys and credits, excepting
of said companies.
Class 4. Horses and cattle over 3 years,
•hcep and swine over 1 year, household
furniture, tools, implements, gardens, or
manufactories. Amounts to exceed S3OO
or not taxable.
Class 5. Capital stock of banks.
Class 6. Gross earnings ot banks.
State and TJ. S. property, county proper
ty, asylums, benevolent and charitable in
stitutions, parks, schools, churches, ceme
teries, etc., are class 7, which is not
taxed, but is liable for assessments for pav
ing, sewering, eto.
ACCORDING to a recent census bulletin,
the ratio of land and water surface is 98.16
*nd 1.84 per cent respectively. This bul
letin also gives the area of tho States and
Territories by counties, and the classifica
tion of the latter by sizes. The average
number of persona to each square mile of
the land surface of the Union is 21.08. As
illu>trative of the sust?tiuing capacity of
the I'nited States, the bulletin says that if
Texas, the largest State in the Union, was
as thickly populated as the State of Rhode
Island, it would have 83,623,628 inhabi
tants, while if the United States had a den
sity of population eqnal to that of Rhodo
Island, tho population of the Union, in
stead of being 62,622.250, would reach tb>-
enornie>us «am of 045 766,300. or nearlj
two-thirds of the present population of the

Representatives T! inpson and Williams
have their boys witem at Hamsburg.at
present, and previous to the re-assembling
of the Legislature, last week, took them to
Philadelphia and Carlisle. In a note to
us Mr. Thompson speaks of their trip as
"Our group then,consisting of four boys,
Mr. Williams and myself, had a delightful
trip over the mountains, which was enjoy
ed as only boys can enjoy new and grand
scenery, sucfc as the Penn a route affords.
Wo arrived at Philadelphia at 6:45 p.m.,
took lodgings for the night and on Friday
morning took our boys to as many of the
molt interesting places of that beaitiful
city as it was possible to do in one day.
We returned to Harrisburg on tho late
train, to start next morning for Carlisle,
Cumberland county, to visit the Indian In
dustrial school there, which was most in
teresting to the men as well as tho boys.
This school has Certainly demonstrated the
peculiar suscepibility and aptness of the
young Indian to acquire high attainments
in literature and the industrial arts.
At 1:15 p.m.. same day, we started for
Gettysburg to visit the historic battle
field, at that now peaceful but strangely
interesting little town; and after having
been driven over the battle field at the in
stance of the gallant Capt. Zeigler of Get
tysburg, accompanied by himself and
guide, who gave an intensely interesting
historic sketch of each of the most inter
esting periods of that never to be forgotten
battle of July 1, 2 and 3, 18G3. When we
again embarked for Harrisburg arri\ ing
here in time lor the evening session of
Monday, April 6. Our boys succeeded in
finding quite a number of relics such as
minnie balls, grapo shot, etc., which had
hitherto escaped the notice of visitors.
Capt. Zeigler of whom I speak is at pres
ent H member ot the House of Representa
tives, and a full cousin to our well known
"Uncle Jake" late of Butler, and is the
happy possessor of the same amiable and
genial characteristics so well de\ eloped in
uncle Jake.
The gayel hM Bounded and we must go
to work. We have been very busy since
our return. Tours truly,
THE Presidential party, consisting of the
President, his wife, P. M. G. Wanamaker,
Sec'y Rusk, and others, left Washington
last Monday night. Their first stop was at
Lynchburg, Va. They are going to Cali
fornia by the southern route, and will re
turn by the northern.
THB confession of Polits, one of the
Italians who was lynched at New Orleans,
has been made public. He says that at a
meeting of the Mafia society, ten names
were drawn from a wheel and the men so
drawn were ordered to "do'' the chief of
Police, that the arms were carried in a
bag to a certain shop where the men also
met; that a boy watched for the chief and
gave the men notice of his coming, and
that they them stepped out of the shop and
shot him.

you had better take very good care of your

Mr. John McDevitt, as usual, intends
planting a large crop of potatoes. We
believe this to be a good idea and think
that some more farmers might profit by
doing the same.
Prof. J. F. Timmeny was a visitor at
Brady school oa Tuesday of last week.
Misses Emma Dipner and Maggie Young

We are pleased to note that Mrs. Fuller
ton, who has been quite seriously affected
for some weeks with a trouble o f the inner
ear, is now much better. We hope she
will continue to regain her health.
Hay and feed seem very scarce with
some of our farmers this spring, and indeed
this state of affairs is not to t>e wondered
at when we take into consideration the
time the farmers have been leeding.
"We notice that the correspondent from
Frogtown to the Millerstown Herald notes
the fact that one of our farmers has hit
upon a cunning device for the protection
ot pumpkin vines from bugs, viz: The
farmer has fenced a frog-pond in with his
corn-field, The frogs are to eat the bugs.
To the front, farmers!
Mr. W. S. Sipe is agent for Dr. Tal
mage's latest and greatest work, "From
Manger to Throne." Judging from the
prospectus which we saw, the book will be
a grand one; and how could it help being!

a sufficient voucher for the quality of the
Wo take great pleasure in stating that
Fenelton has some very loyal followers of
the grand old Stars and Stripes; and not
only is this true among the young folks,
but it is also true among the more ad
vancd in age. "We frequently hear men fa*
too old to go to war, stating that they are
willing to fight for our country if neces
The season for milking roads is near at
hand, and we join with all other good citi
xens in asking that there be a little more
and a little better work done on our roads
this year than that which was done last
year. True the roads in many parts of our
county are very bad in- the extreme, but
we must acknowledge that ours, taking
them all in all, are the worst we have ever
seen anywhere under the circumstances.
Now that some of oar schools have closed
and the others are drawing near to com
pletion, the question naturally arises in
the minds of all those who are interested,
viz: Has the means adopted justified the
ends accomplisbedT or in other words,
Hare the increased wages paid to our
teachers the past season been beneficial to
our pupils, and to our citizens at large?
Have the "imported" and so-called "low
grade-eertificato" teachers, proved them
selves worthy of their calling; and have
our directors been paid for their courage
and perseverance in calling some of their
teachers from abroadt Our answer is in
the affirmative. In the first place, so far
as our observation and knowledge extends,
the new teachers have givon entire satis
faction to both pupils and parents. They
t.'ve, as it were, inl'used new life into the
schools; they have introduced new ideas,
and presented some of the old ones in a
new way; they have, we believe, been try
ing to perform their duties faithfully and
have realized the truth of the old saying,
"The gods help those who help them
selves." And even those who were retain
ed from last year seem enthused by the
current of affairs, and are pashing on and
doing their best. In the next place, to be
sure onr directors have not been paid in
dollars and cents, but they have been paid
with something of far more comfort and
value than mere dollars; they have been
paid in that they have had the pleasure of
witnessing good schools. The pupils have
been benefited and some compensation has
been given for the money expended. We
think that any person who is acquainted
with the condition of things, cannot but
believe as we do.

quire different treatment in sowing.
Here we can sow in early spring on the
bed of winter wheat or rye; or perhaps
the best way is to sow after the first
harrowing of oats. It makes a fino
growth with the other grain, and as
the weather is apt to be moist at harvest
time it is not killed out by hot snns
when exposed after the cutting away
of the grain.
In sections where it is likely to bo
dry in midsummer wo should ndvise
sowing alone on stubble ground early
in tho spring, and then keep weeds
mowed down two or three times during
the season. This will prevent at any
time a dense shade, and also furnish a
mulch for the young plants. Then
there will be no woody, coarso weeds
to rake up with tho crop the next year.
For oue of the best paying crops,
simply as a crop, and for the drawing
in and retaining of valuable elements
of the soil, sow clover. —J. M. It ice, in
Prairie Farmer.
To Increase Fertility It Is Almost as
Good as Clover.
Clover is considered ono of tho best,
if not tho best crop that can bo used to
build up a run-down soil. But in pome
cases the land has been cropped down
so much that a good growth of clover
cannot be readily secured, and when
this is the case something else must bo
used. In the absence of clover one of
tho best crops to use is buckwheat. It
will grow in a soil too poor to make a
good crop of clover; it makes a quick
growth and will soon shade the soil
thoroughly. Shading tho soil aids in
nitrification and also in destroying the
weeds. One advantage with buckwheat
is that two good crops can be grown
and turned under in one season and a
sufficient quantity of plant food secured
in this way to grow a crop of clover,
oiid a soil that will grow clover can te
built up into a good condition of fertil
The first seeding can be done as soon
as all danger of hard frost is past; sow
broadcast, taking pains to sow tho seed
as evenly as possible over the surfc.ce
and harrow in well. As soon as a good
growth has been uiada, or when in full
bloom, it will pay to plow under, taking
pains to cover as completely as possible.
A second sowing can bo made as soon
as the first is plowed under, and beforo
a hard frost in tho fall it will have
made a good growth. In this way a
considerable quantity of valuablo for
tilizer can be applied at a comparatively
small cost and a good start be made
towards building up tho fertility. Liko
clover, buckwheat will help to make
the soil looser and more friable and to
make plant food already in the soil
available, as well as to add to the sup
ply of fertilizing material. Its quick
growth and its branching habit of
growth make -it a desirable crop to
grow for a green manuro, and as It will
grow on very thin land it will be found
a good crop to use for this purpose, es
pecially in the spring.—St. Louis Re
It Will Savo Great Veratlon In Handling

The illustration herewith furnished
represents one panel of a movable
fence, which my be constructed of any
length desired, anil spaced to suit. The
open figures show the fence boards, tha
dark figures inches; letter A the cross
cleats of 4-inch crib lumber; space be
tween two end cleats 4 inches. Nail
the cleats on with wire nails clinched;
end cleats 4 inches apart. Lumber does
not need cutting. Where used for hogs
only, 4 planks is high enough, and the
fence will stand without any supports
when set at an anglo of an old-fash
foned rail fence. Have fence boards all
iame length, with upper and lower
boards reaching the outside cleat at
one end, while tho 3 middle boards
reach it at the other end, leaving top
and bottom vacant to hook into the nest
panel. I'ut cleats all on same side of
fence; manner of setting up is readily
seen. A few panels o£ this fence will
save great vexation in handling con
trary stock. —Cor. Orange Judd Farmer.
Fertilization of Plants.
Bees serve as active agents in the fer
tilization of plants, and arc not destruc
tive in the least degree, says a writer.
They arc profitable, because they gatliet
and store up that which would be entire
ly lost without their aid. They work in
places that are rarely seen, and the
fence corners and neglected spots are
often valuable pasture fields for them.
Though regarded as resentful in nature,
yet they can bo cared for easily, for,
like animals, they are conquered by
