On Thursday the Democratic member* of the Senate Finance Committee finished their tinkering of the Wilson bill, and re ported the bill to the whole committee. Sugar is taken off the free list and a tariff of one cent a ponnd put on it, 40 cents a ton is pnt on coal and iron ore; wool and laraber are left on the free list; 50 per cent, ad valorem is pnt oil clothing; glassware is raised for 30 to 40 per cent; the Income tax remains a part ot the bill, etc. On Friday President Cleveland relieved the suspense that has been overhanging the postmastership of Pittsburg for the past year by sending to the Senate the appoint ment of John C. O'Donnell. J. J- Finney, the celebrated detective, was appointed postmaster of Tarentum. The Senators were all studying the amended Wilson bill,and some Democratic Senators were said to be dissatisfied. Senator Pefier created a sensation by asking for a*committee to investigate the charges certain Senators had been speculating in Sugar. On Monday by a strict party vote the Democrats on the Senate Finance Com mittee refused to give even five shoit days to a hearing at which workingmen,farmers and manufactures might state their object ions to the Wilson bill. And this in the face of tbe fact that five weeks had been spent is-fixing it up so as to suit the Sugar trust, the lead trust, and those Democratic Senators like Gorman, of Maryland, and Pugh and Morgan, of Alabama, to say nothing of giving opportnnities to other Democratic Senators to juggle with tbe sngar duties and make fortunes in the New YdSrk stock market. The Republican Senators on the finance committee began their dissection that day. Part of the schedules were gone over and their faults shown up. But the Democrats, while not defending their work, made no changes. On Tuesday Chairman Amos Cummings of the Naval Committee introduced a reso lution in Congress calling on Secretary Herbert for full information concerning the much talked of armor plate contracts. Mr. Cummings said that tbe object of the resolution was to get all tbe facts in the case. Said he: Tbe House wants to know tbe truth and the Country wants to know it, and this is the way to get it. We want all the infor mation the Secretary of the Nary has, and more, if there is more behind it. I know what the coarse of the Navy Department has been in the affair, and there is nothing in it to its discredit. If anyone is entitled to b!ame it is the Carnegie company, which is responsible for tbe trouble. On Wednesday the Benate passed the Bland seiguorage bill; refused to consider the sugar investigation resolution; and tbe tariff bill was yet being discussed by the Finance Committee. The Proposed Site for the High School. Section 1 of the act of assembly author izing and regulating the taking, use and occupancy of certain public burial places for common school purposes, reads as fol lows: Bsc I'. Be it enacted, "That when ever the board of directors or controllers of any school district in this Commonwealth shall deem it desirable to occnpy for pur poses of common school education any ground therein used as a public barial place, or conveyed in fee to a municipal corporation to be kept as a public burial place, such board may, by resolutioa pass ed by tbe affirmative vote of at least four fifths of all the members thoreof, and duly entered on the minutes, declare its inten tion to take, use and occupy tbe same for the,purpose aforesaid, designating the same in said resolution by metes and bounds: Prodded, No more than one half •ere of ground shall at any one time be so taken, used or occapied: .ind Provided, This act shall not apply to burial grounds of religions societies, churches or congre gations, or of private corporations or asso ciations, nor to portions thereof devoted to public use or the burial of the poor, nor to the burial grounds on or connected witb almshouse properties. Then..it goes on to provide for viewers, damages, judgment, etc., and acting un der tbe law the School Board of Butler at its special meeting of Saturday evening, by a vote of-14 to 2, resolved to occupy or obtaiu control of the old cemetery lo>. facing on McKean and North ets., for school purposes, and will petition Court to approve of tbeir resolution, appoint view ers, etc. The lot in question was deeded by tbe Cunninghams to tbe borough for burial purposes nearly a hundred years ago, no interment has been made in it for many years, it has not been kept in order, and is now and has for many years been an "eye sore.'' The few bodies remaining in it could easily be removed, and the lot would then be one of tbe most central and therefore the most available in Butler for a High School or for general school pur poses. • ... Theatres and Their Influence. To everything there is a season and a time to every purpose under the heaven. — Kcclesiastes. iii., 1. The place which the theatre occupies in onr modern society, whether we are to stoutly defend its claims or humbly apolo gize for its necessary evil —this is a ques tion which is always in the air. It has ex cited almost as mach controversy as relig ion, but while both parties have beec equally honest they have not made much progress toward an agreement. The peculiarity of the debate is one that obtains with no other subject under dis pute, for while the advocates of the stage -peak from a large personal experience those who denounce it have generally had no personal experience whatever. If the clergy,whose motives are by no means to ue impugned, shonld see Mr. Jeflerson s Rip Van Winkle orMr.lrving's Becket,and then declare that the spectacle lowers the moral tone of the audience, we might differ with them in opinion, bat their judgment would deservedly have exceeding weight. It is not necessary for a man to visit a gambling dive in order to discover that it is harmful, because it is universally con ceded that gam es of chance are an nnmiti siated evil and cannot be defended by any show of argument. Dramatic representa tion has been wrongly classed in the same category but assuredly it does not belong there. The drama is not essentially evil, and must therefore be criticised by the effects it produces on society and the indi vidual. What are some of these effects and to what extent are they to be deplored T There is no reason why we should lay aside all prejudice and preconceptions and judge the case simply on its merits. We can al ways afford to be fair and there is no good ground for bsing unjust. First, then, it is charged that actors and actresses have a oode of morals of their own and that there is a degree of looseness in it which is not to be tolerated. This is at least partly true, aud it is unfortunate that it is true. It is very desirable that both actors and actressess should be above re proach, but it is desirable that the men and women who apolaud them should be above reproach also. If every actor were a Bavard the stage would urdoubtedly be different from what it is, but we are bound to add that if every man in the audience were a Bayard society would take on a different complexion. The rule which is applied to the stage shonld be used else where,and it is not quite generous to spurn an actor for a course of life which is —such is the laxity of public morals—easily con doned in other people. There is no excuse for immorality any where, neither on the stage nor in business life, nor in :he fashionable world. It, how ever, a genuine crusade were to be under taken and tbe attempt made to reconstruct human nature it might be will to begin with the stage, but it would never do to end with it, and we venture to say that we can name a score of actors and actress es who would hail such a movement with enthusiasm, for good men and women in a profession ought not to suffer for the short comings of the unworthy. This is true, both behind and in front of tbe footlights. We might refer to the late Mr. Booth's career in illustration of this fact. He was a noble, self-tacrificing, charitable and pa triotic citizen as well as a great actor. Take his life as a whole and there are few in any profession who have exerted a more manly and uplifting influence. He had a great soul, and riobly deserved not only the fame be won, but also tbe respect of tbe world which was so cheerfully and abundantly given. Actora and actresses are public property. Whatever they do is knewn. If they have faults or if they commit a crime against ex it ting customs it is at once spread broad cast. A business man, a lawyer, a doctor may be equally guilty, but his obliquity is bidden. The world sees tbe worst side of tbe actor's character always, and forms its j ndgement from that side; it sees the best side of every one else, and frequently over estimates bis worth. Ihe actor can hide notbi ng; other men in the community can bide a great deal. We aro defending no one by these state ment:*, but simply trying to tell tbe plain, a nvaraished truth. The stage is nothing more to us than one of the factors of our social life, which we would criticise with candor and a regard for the general welfare. But we must needs be careful not to over blame one class whose faults are made glar ing by oircumstances and ignore the faults of other classes who have the opportunity to conceal their misdoiDgs. Second, it is charged that the theatre is an unwholesome stimulant which cannot fail to do injury If this be true it is a very serious matter. But is it truef It is a question which each one mast answer for himself, and his answer should govern his conduct. If a thing is not wrong in itself, then it mu»t be judged solely by the effects it produces. It is not merely tbe love of amusement, but the actual necessity of it, wbich sends most people to tbe theatre. A few hours "respite from business cares, and, so far as women are concerned, from tbe harass ment of domestic life, is very desirable and and in most theatres it can be had without injury A hearty laugh at a farce, an ev eumug's nonsense which drags one out of the rats of daily routine and forces one to forget for the time being that the morrow has heavy bnrdensi it is not only innocent, but helpfal. We venture to declare that in this re gard tbe stage is accomplishing great good, and fills a place f->r which there is no sub stitute. Instead of abolishing it, if society were itself pure enough to demand only the best kind of drama, the theatre would respond at once, for the manager is a busi ness man, who ran t please the public in order to reap success. The theatre never leads, but always follows its patrons. They find there just what pleases them, and are themselves responsible if tbe stage falls below nar A cleau play can harm no one,but an un clean play, and for that matter an unclean anything else, whether it is found in poli tics, in 'aw or in society, is not to be tol erated. That is the only rule by wbich our judgement should be controlled.—N. Y. Herald. Sinfully took the Cake. A speoial from Slippery Rock says: "A breach of discipline that would be funny if it were not for the serious consequences involved for tbe offenders developed at tbe Normal School here yesterday. The stn dents got a ration of cake at tbe Sunday evening tea. Knowing that the cake must be in the cupboard, Sunday morning. G. F. Dumblat, Todd Goodie. Frank Foulk and J. C. McMillen, rooming in tbe gentle men's dormitory,left their beds at 2 o'clock and in reckless disregard of the sacred day and the pain and penalties sure to follow detection, broke and entered the pantry in the boarding hall and did sinfully and surreptitiously steal, extract and eat eight cakes. Principal Dr. Maltby did the de tective work that practically convicted these men of cribbing the cake. Middlesex Item*, Miss Margaret Jane Mcßride visited ber sister, Mrs. S. A. Leslie, on Monday. Misses Sadie Leslie and Katy White sides were tbe guests of Mrs. Robt. Kyle on last Wednesday. Wendell Hicky is on the sick list. M r.'. (Jor<i«lia Donahue and Miss .Susie Le.ilie are visiting friends in this vicinity. Mrs. Kobt. Jack visited f.-irmds in Bak erstown and reports having a splendid tiai®- The New Railroad. The following lrom the East Brady Hcrietc of last * eek is of interest to the people of Fairview. Concord, and ad joining townships: In oar last issue -we announced that the sale of the Brady's Bend IronCo's property would be confirmed on Tuesday. March 6th, and that no doubt something coal J then be learned as to the intentions of the new syndicate in regard to the developments at Brady's Bend. We were not disappointed. What ba.-> transpired since oar last it>n» should set at at rest all fears of the '•Doubting Thomases" and quicken their pulses in the interests of an enterprise that will make this entire section from East Brady to Butler teem with business in a Very lew months at best. The new rail road will be pushed forward ja«t as rapidly as possible and there is no mistaken sound in this. Only a faint conception of what benefit will result froin this for East Brady can be bad, for the enterprises that will be established when a route to the great lakes ie secured will put in the shade any past advancement ia the history of oar to*n. The first thing of interest in connection with wnat has lately transpired to start new inteiest in the B. B. I. Co. was the arrival at the express office on Thursday afternoon ot a big bundle ot scakes to be used in marking tbe line of the railroad, and in tbe evening four surveyors from Pittsburg also arrived and next morning began work on a line from Brady's Bend to connect somewhere near Butler with the Sbenango <fc Allegheny Railroad. The names ot these gentlemen are E. Holbrook, J. W. Patterson, Jr., S. F. Hammond and D. D. Miller, all ol Pitts burg, Mr. Holbrook being tbe chief engineer i and an experienced and successful survey or. He, with Mr. S. F. Hammond, looked over the property last week preparatory to 1 commencing active operations. Friday they started from the river bank just op posite here and followed the line of the old railroad up Sugaroreek to M. Kockett's store, where they crossed tbe run and kept up the right band side along the base ot the hill until Mrs. Jos. Foringer's store was reached, where the line was run up the hollow, ana when the surveyors left tbeir quarters at the Hotel Freeman this (Wednesday) morning they expected to reach the Summit, at high ridge about six miles from this place and three from Mil lerstown. They cannct tell at just what point they will strike the S. <t A. Ky., but i it will no doub, be at Hilliards or Uoal i town. The distance between Hilliards and Coaltown is about 8 miles. The grade of the new railroad wilt be about 80 feet to the mile. At tbe Summit the grade is more than a hundred feet, but this will be overcome by cuttiug down ttje hill: It is thought about two weeks will be required to run this line, and then tbe surveyors expect to begin on another, and probably a third, before a definite route w ill be settled on, as the very best way out will be tbe one selected, and not the cheapest. Tuesday morning, March 6.0, the con firmation of tbe oale took place at Kittau ning without delay, there being no ob jections tiled, and toe new company hare now no hindrances to prevent the speedy development of their property. Th« 10:54 train Wednesday deposited Messrs. X. G. Tustin .ind W. J. Hammond, of Pittsburg, both members of the new company winch purchased the B. B. I. Co's property, and the former its new manager. Oar reporter secured an inter view with these gentlemen just before taey started to inspect the property and found bold pleasant and energetic business men, who are almost enthusiastic regarding the future of their vast property, East .Brady and the country through which the road will penetrate They are here to locate two oil wells somewhere across the river, and left oGr reporter alter the interview shortly alter dinner to commence tnoir work, intending to return home on the evenittg tram. Operations in drilling these wells will be commenced without delay. Regarding the new railroad they said that as soon as tbe surveyors had found the best route a railroad would be built. This means that in a few months men will be employed preparing a bed for a railroad through Brady's LSuud that will open up an outlet to the lakes whereby their coa£ and minerals can be shipped at least 27 cents a ton cheaper than before or now. Around The World. A peculiar accident occurred at the lit. Tacoma Manufacturing Company's mill in Tacoma on the moruiug of February 6, which is reported in the West Coast lum berman as follows; Charles E. Tuttle. a logger in the employ of the mill, was di rected to split a large ce iar log lying upon the carriage, as it was too large for tbe saw. Tuttle stood upon tbe log and drove a number of wedges into it, when the log suddenly parted and the unfortunate man in endeavoring to get oat of the danger, slipped and fell into the opening between the halves. Before he conld escape the pieces closed in upon him leaving only hia head outside. A number of workman saw the accident, and the unconscious man was released by prying the log apart. At first it was thought that he had suffered I internal injuries, but after a few days ot rest be was able to resume work again, John Rodgers, a resident ot Indiana, was killed a few nights ago by a number of members of tbe "Mulberry retective as sociation," an organisation of farmers of his conntv recently tormed with the purpose of making horse stealing and other modus of thieving which have been quite prevalent for u long time, unpopular. While Warren Thompson with his family way absent from home, thieves entered tbe house and made away witb a quantity of meat flour and other provisions. John Rodders was suspected. Farmer Thomp. son called the association togatber and it fn decided to watch R'Klgers' house for tbe appearance of the thief with his plun der. Fifteen men accordingly concealed theuiselve* at various places about Rod gers' premises and at 11 o'clock Rodgers made bis appearance. It was asserted that be was loaded with tbb stolen property. At any rate an attempt was made to arrest him. Rodgers resisted and drew a revol ver. Tbe next instant bis body, riddled with bullets, was writhing on the ground. He lived ab.mt ten minutes The Free School Books. Supt. McCollough requests us to publish the following communication received by bim. HARRISBUBU, Feb. 8, 1894. DBAB SIB:—School text books purchased by Boards of Directors at tbe expense of their respective districts as authorized and required by the Act of May 18, 1893, P L, page 93, "are for use in tbe public schools." The books cannot, therefore, be used un der any conditions, whatever, in private schools of any kind. Tbe directors have no discretion in tbe matter, except what tb«< law gives to them; and inasmuch as the law itself limits the use of tbe books to the public schools, tbp directors cannot con sistently nor legally permit tbe use ot free text-books in private or subscription schools. The patrons of the schools are to be oom mended for tbe progressive spirit shown in tbe desire expressed to have better educa tional advantages for tbeir children than are ofFered by short terms of school. The proper course, however, to pursue in all such cases, is to extend tbe term of tbe public schools and thus give all tbe chil dren tbe advantages of longer annual terms, aud free text books as well as free tuition. This is the correct solution of tbe whole question aud is in accordance with the spirit of tbe laws governing the operation of the public school system. Where free text books are in use, the schools must b i free also, open to all children alike without any conditions or restrictions which tbe law itself does not authorize. Very respectfully, V C. SCIIAEFFKR, Supt. of Public Instructions. A Surprise Party. A very pleasant birthday surprise party was given Tuesday evening in honor of Mr. John Manic of East End and Lewis Hite at the residence of tua latter on Brady street. l>y sooie thirty five of tbeir fiiepds A very pleasant evening was spent in dancing auJ various other amusements, Mr. Martin honored his lady friends witb beautiful roses and tbe gent» with tine figars, after which a very delicious lunch was served.

NEIGHBORHOOD NOTES Six men were arrested in the first ward, Pittsburg, Thursday, for illegal Toting; and Judge Porter ordered the arrest of fifty-seven other*. 0 The other day a mail train on the Penn sylvania railroad from New York, earned the largest mail that has ever passed through Pittsburgh on any single train. There were seven cars of mail matter, aggregating over eighty tons. Sixty truck loads of it were transferred to the Pan handle and went on west, while the re mainder went over the Ft. Wayne. A well known Greensburg clergyman, while dining out recently, was placed in a very awkward predicament. The waiter, in handing the soup, came in contact the clergyman's pet corn, and tripping, landed the boiling contents of *he tureen into the clerical waistcoat: The situation would have justified the use of strong Saxon language, bat with bland and meek •erenity the victim merely observed,"Will not gome kind layman make an appropri ate remarkf' The 15 year-old son of Robert J. Evan, of Lancaster, Pa left his bed one night 1 «st week, and in his night dress opened tje door, climbed on a balcony rail and let himself down on the roof of an adjoining kitchen. He swung himself clear off the roof of this buildiag and clutched the limb of a tree. Then he slid to the ground and ualed a fence, entering the premises of a neighbor. He rapped loudly on the neigh bor's door, awakening the family. He was sound asleep and almost froren when taken into the house. A man who begins a fifty dollar law sua to recover twenty dollars acts like a fool, but tnere are plenty such. Bat a worse case still turned up over in York county last week. A farmer from a dis tant part of the county went to Tork to haveu cow which died for him taken from his assessment. The cow was assessed at sl6 and the tax would have been six cents. To have this done cost him a trip to the county town and return for whiob the fare was one dollar, the loss of a day's time and the expenses while in the city. A curiosity in the form of a rabbit-cat was recently presented by A. Nunn, to J. H. Carman, and has attracted considerable at Rupp <t Carman's saloon, where she or has been kept. The freak was found in a lumber yard in Erie a couple of years ago, and was presented to Mr. Nuun who in turn gave it to Mr. Carman. Its hind quarters are rabbit and its fore-quarters cat, the two animals being perfectly rep resented in the parts named. Its hind legs are the longest, aud it bops rather than walks, and whether it is a rabbit or a cat depeuds entirely on how yon look at it, says the MnaJviile Republican Eduiuud Bleakly, cashier of the Inter national Bihk at Franklin, is in a peck of trouble. List week suit was entered against hiui for $5,000 for alienating the affections of the wife of Clayton Newing ham. The plaiutili' makes charges of the persistent pursuit of his young wife, and specifies alleged times, places and inci dents involving grossly immoral conduct on the part ol the defendant. The accus ed is a prominent figure it financial as well as social circles in Franklin. He has de clined to make any statement but tays it is a case of blackmail, pure and simple, and will stand trial on the case. The detail* of an unhappy affair, that uia} involve a lamentable tall from grace, are waited from the Mc(jui»tun settlement, in Scrubgrass township, Venango Co. Her. Mr. Stillwagon, a minister of the "Church of god," is to bare a hearing beforw a local Justice of the Peace on the charge of audultery. The Co-respondent in the case is Mrs. Win. Brown, of Mt.
