During the latter part of last week
the ripper charter-bill passed the Sen
ate bp a vote of 28 to 18.
In the House the Cooper amendment
to the Grady repeal bill passed by a
vote of *9 to 84, which frustrates Grady 's
scheme and may give the state a new
law McClain of Lancaster, also in
troduced a libel bill and all the libel
bills will be considered by the House on
Wednesday next, the 27th.
Russia has lost no time in retaliating
against the order of Secretary Gage in
creasing the tariff upon Russian sugar.
Count Cassini, Russia's Ambassador at
Washington, is in receipt of informa
tion by cable that his government made
an order abolishing all concessions to
American iron, steel, hardware and
machinery. The effect of the order is
to advance the Russian tariff 50 per
cent upon all these products. American
exports of iron aDd steel manufactures
to Russia last year amounted to about
$10,000,000, and it is believed the advance
of 50 per cent in the tariff will com
pletely kill that trade.
Russia has become one of America's
best customers, and the development
following the completion of the Trans-
Siberan railroad promised to give our
mills and factories additional millions
worth of trade. Politically Russia was
friendly and had made concessions of
30 and 2.'j per cent in tarriffs to favor
American imports. At one stroke these
are alxilished in favor of Germany and
Great Britian, our only rivals in these
lines. All this for a tariff penalty upon
a paltry 1650,000 worth, or less, of Rus
sian sugar.
y The bill to authorize the holding of
"the international exposition in celebra
tion of the centennial anniversary of
of the Louisiana purchase at St. Louis
in IW)3 and appropriating $5,000,000
therefor, passed the House Monday
under suspension of the rules by a vote
of 101 to 41. The opposition was hope
lessly in the minority and the straggle
over the bill was brief.
The Ship Subsidy bill met with de
feat in the Senate.
Libel Law Tinkering.
The first of Senator Grady's serial at
tempts to muzzle free discussion of
public affairs by the press was very
materially improved by the adoption of
the Cooper amendment in the House
yesterday. That amendment, however,
does not make the new bill as good
as the existing law.
It is a clever and pertinent commen
tary to propose in this amendment to
make a statutory declaration of the
constitutional liberty of the press, and
the unwelcomed character of that
amendment is sufficiently illustrated
by the opposition of the supporters of
the Grady brand of legislation to tae
adoption of the language of the Con
stitutiyj* But an example in the way
in w Web the Cooper amendment falls
of it&own standard is afforded
in ittfexcTusion o? the plea of justifica
tion "where the words used are plainly
directed against private character."
Private character in the case of a can
didate for office may sometimes have
the most cogent public interest. If an
emliezzler in private life should become
a candidate for an office of public trust
would Mr. Cooper have the press de
barred from informing the people of
his private character?
As to Mr. Grady's second installment
of press censorship, it is the sort of bill
which the gentlemen in tempory retire
ment at Riverside and Moyamensirig
would pass if they had the opportunity
of the gentlemen at Harrisburg.
There is no need for any snch absurd
legislation. The present libel iB ade
quate for the civil and criminal punish
ment of abuses by the press. No case
has been cited of any honest man who
has been injured invoking it in vain.
There are some reckless and malignant
journals , but their nnmber is happily
few.- -The improvement in public taste
is a better corrective for papers with a
vicious animus than any ridiculous and
extreme measures like the second Grady

At the Zoo in Indianapolis.a few days

would not release his hold on the young
man till a red-bot poker was thrust into
his month.

Untonville Literary Society.
A literary society was organized at
the Uniouville school house at McCand
less. on Friday evening Feb. 15, I HOI.
After the reading of the constitution
by Jas. T. McCandless, the society was
duly organized and the following offi
cers were elected; President, James T.
McCandlei s; Vice President, George W.
Varnmh; Secretary Miss iva Miller;
Marshall, Frank Varnnm; Critics. Sam
uel Allen and Presley Heck. After
these officers were installed and had
taken charge of their respective offices,
an interesting program consisting of
recitations and a dialogue followed.
Some of these speeches were quite
laughable as well as instructive and en
tertaining and were heartially applaud
ed. A short recess followed, after
which the society was again called to
order by the president.
The regular debate was next. The
question, Resolved that there is
more pleasure in the possession than in
the pursuit, was discussed by E N.
Snyder, A. McCandless and John
Stamm, affirmative, James T. McCand
less and C. Snyder, negative. Decision
two to one in favor of the affirmative.
After the reading of the program for
March Ist fOOI, the society adjourned.
The meeting on March Ist will l>e un
usually interesting as a stirring debate
and one or two big dialogues are schedul
ed. We axe well pleased to see so
many of the parents and citizens of the
twp. in attendance and hope all will
continue to come and encourage the
young people in literaiy work.

A Blank Valentine.
The office was crowded with eager
faces awaiting the changing of the
mail. It was St. Valentine's day and of
coarse everyone was expecting their
tokens of love, at the same time think
ing of others who on this day would re
ceive the tokens of love their hearts
prompted them to send. Loud was the
laughter and many the jests when the
display of cotuic pictures was shown.
But there was one who did not tacry to
open his large envelope at the office, but
in the seclusion of his own room and
with a fast beating pulse and nervous
fingers he hastily broke the seal and
drew forth a large plain sheet of paper.
It was of a purple tint and by appear
ance without a single blot or marking
of any kind, but a faint odor of violets
prevailed the air and although disap
pointment plainly showed on his face he
smiled as he tossed the envelope into a
drawer and turned the key in the lock.
He then sat thinking of a dark pair of
eyes and a pretty face that he knew
would be bending over an elaborate val
entine which he had posted with his
own hand, although another had writ
ten that name which was so dear to
This disappointed young man thought
he was a very ill used person. Two
weeks before he had asked a certain
young lady to be his "valentine" but
his answer was the same old cry, "Oh:
this is so sudden, I will have to have
time to think it over.'' And when
wanting to know when he should call
for his answer he was informed that he
need not call as it could be sent through
the mail, and so he had to bide nts time
and wait, but now that Valentine day
was passed, and the hopes that be had
had on that day of receiving his looked
for answer, were icone, the blackest of
disappointment filled his heart.
A year spun around. A year contain
ing 365 days, each day bringing a new
disappointment, for the long looked for
answer never came. Again it was \ al
entine day and again an eatrer throng
filled the post office, but one who had a
year ago left that office with an expect
ant smile on his face now left it with a
look of diappointuitnt and hopeless des
pair in its place.
Again saeking the seclusion of his
own room and sitting at his desk he ab
sent mindedly places the key in the
lock and draws forth the drawer which
holds that fatal blank sheet of paper
which has not been disturbed for a
year As he once more draws it from
the envelope the scent of violets smites
his senses and for the first time he
notices that it is an extra fine piece of
paper, and taking it to the window, the
better to examine it. he holds it be
tween his eyes and the light and 10,
there appears thereon the face of the
one so dear to him and that has haunt
ed his dreams for a year. His delight
and surprise were so genuine that lor
the space of ten seconds he failed to
notice the verse which the light also
brought to view and which read;
"Oh! Dearest one I send to thee
My one last Valentine,
I am yours, dear, when you want me,
Coiiie and claim mo anytime."
When his eyes follow the above lines
his lips fall on a blank sheet of paper,
(for he had lowered it from the light)
and it was then thrust in his pocket,
and for the nest two hours the train on
which he traveled seemed to travel back
ward, such was his haste to reach a
certain station, but at last the train ar
rived and be was once more before the
