Two new announcements for Jury
Commissioner, this week.
The Pittsburg Times asserts that
Mathues is to have the nomination for
State Treasurer, with the salary raised
from |5.000 to #IO,OOO, on account of his
treachery to El kin.
The fight in Lawrence county over
the succession to the Honorable Wil
liam Wallace is already on. Both
factions will try to capture the County
Committee at Saturday's primaries.
At the local elections in Ohio, Mon
day the Republican tickets in Cincin
nati and Columbus won, but the Demo
crats carried Cleveland.
The spring elections in that state are
of unusual import, this year, on account
of a new law requiring the election of
all officers in all cities and towns.
State Senator Focht says that U. S.
Senator M, S. Quay, will resign his
office, in the near future, and that Gov
Pennvpacker will appoint Quay's son
Dick, to fill his unexpired term.
Focht goes on to say: "Gov. Penny
packer, I am told, sympathizes with
Quay in this matter. His own exper
ience clearly demonstrated the fact that
Quay is possessed of an incomparable
judgment when it comes to passing
upon conditions for high offices. Hence
the governor will do anything in his
power to prevent a mistake being made
in regard to Quay's succession.
"The present legislature is singularly
blind. Quay and the governor both
realize this fact. They know that if
the senior senator should resign prior to
April 10 that the general assembly
might elect any one of a half dozen
men to fill the vacancy, also that Dick
Quay wonld not be on the list of eligi
"And this is why Col. Quay does not
intend to trouble the legislature with
the matter. He will wait till the legis
lature has adjourned, April 16, and
then he will fulfill his time-honored
promise to retire from active politics.
Gov. Pennypacker is not one who would
permit the great state of Pennsylvania
to be without proper representation in
the upper house of Congress. He will re
gret Col. Quay's retirement. Of that I
have not the least doubt. But he will
appoint Dick to fill the vacancy. It's
a family matter, anyway, and the
governor is one who has a high regard
for political reciprocity. He owes his
nomination and election to Quay, and
the appointment of Dick would even
"By this arrangement Dick would be
able to serve two years in the United
States senate, long enough to sprout a
constituency, which might re-elect him
at the next session. And this is his
father's program. Nothing can inter
fere with it except the governor, and he
will not. The 'Old Man' has cfteu told
me that Dick has the most important
qualification for a seat in the United
States Senate—plenty of money. By get
ting there via the appointment route, he
will not impair this most essential pre
requisite, and it will be available when
needed two years from now.
WHEN it was announced a few days
ago that the British Government had
decided to recommend a grant of $150,-
000 for the purpose of helping to make
a creditable display at the St. Louis Ex
position there was much surprise and
not a little dissappointment at the com
parative smalhiess of the amount.
More than twice as much had been ap
propriated for a like object by the
German Reichstag, and, all things con
sidered, it was felt, not without good
reason, that the British should be ex
pected to do more and to go further in
this connection than the Germans.
This Legislature has passed two acts
which are of the first importance in con
nection with public education. Eleven
millions of dollars have been appropri
ated for the next two years and a law
has been passed making the minimum
salary of teachers thirty-five dollars per
month. The last act is excellent so far
as it goes, but eyery person connected
with school management knows that it
is not sufficient for the needs of certain
communities The total sum paid by
State and local taxes for schools per
capita of attendance is about S2B a year,
a sum that is probably the largest in
any community in the world—certainly
involving the largest aid afforded by
any State. If properly expended this
sum ought to accomplish a great deal.
FRATERNAL organizations that issue
beneficial life assurance are far from
b 'ing favorably impressed with the
doctrines of the Christain Scientists.
One of these, the Lodge of Foresters,
has refused to pay the claim of the
widow of a disciple of this faith, who
died a few weeks ago of jaundice ai
Lansing, Michigan. The proofs sent to
the Superior Court of Foresters on the
widows claim under his SI,OOO policy
showed that, although he was seriously
ill for two weess, a physician did not
attend him until the day before his
death. The Forestors have rejected
the claim under the section of their con
stitution, which withdrawn* the benefit
of insurance from any who neglect to
procure or refuse to receive medical aid.
THE World's Fair at St. Louis will
not be ready for visitors until 1004, but
the dedication ceremonies will take
place in the Palace of Liberal Arts on
the 30th of this month. This is the
hundreth anniversary of the signing of
the Louisiana treaty. President Roose
velt will dedicate the exposition, and |
the principal address will be delivered I
by ex President Cleveland. A chorus of
three thousand voices will furnish the ;
music. Not enly will President Roose
velt attend, but the members of his 1
Cabinet: the foreign ambassadors and I
ministers and the entire diplomatic j
corps; the Chief Justice and Associate I
Justice of the Supreme Court; the mem j
bers of both branches of Congress: a i
number of the highest officers in the'
army and navy; the Governors of near ;
ly all the States and Territories, with 1
their staffs; and many other persons of '■
Gov. Pennypacker, ou Monday, vetoed
the bill regulating the practice of
barbering, and a bill authorizing one
railroad to buy part of another, as be
The Cook anti trading stamp bill
passed finally in the Honse Tuesday. A
duplicate, introduced by Mr. Woods of
Allegheny, has passed the Senate,which
insures the passage of the Cook bill,
which now goes to the Senate, where,
after comparison, it will be read once
and passed finally.
The Senate has another fool libel bill
under consideration. "Fortunately the
liberty of the press is guaranteed by the
Constitution, along with free speech.
Certain publications are privileged and
courts and juries have not the same in
centives to hate the publication of the
truth that actuate some politicians.
A SOUTHERN paper sums up the
Burdick case as follows: "If the
coroner's jury would declare that Pen
nell murdered Burdick and thf n com
mitted suicide, and recommend that
Mrs. Burdick be hanged by the neck
until she was dead, it would about hit
the nail on the head and mete out exact
justice in the case. ''
The Sec yof State has selected D. T.
Watson of Pittsburg, as a member of
the Alaskan boundary commission.
A year and nine months have passed
since the reduction of the internal
revenue taxes took effect which was ex
pected to cut off seventy million dollars
each year. The year which ended last
July showed a very decided falling off
in the net revenues, but nothing like
the amount expected, though this was
largely due to increased receipts from
other sources. In the last nine months
the Nation's pocketbook has made a
better showing than ever, with the re
sult that there is at present an increase
in the available cash balance of $45,000,-
000 over the same date a year ago. The
following figures are for receipts during
the nine months ending March 31 for
the two years mentioned:

PRESIDENT ROOSEVELT'S speech at
Chicago, last Thursday night was al
most entirely regarding the "Monroe
Doctrine" —a review and defense of it,
in which he said: "The Monroo Doc
trine is not international law, and
though I think one day it may become
such, this is net necessary as long as it
remains a cardinal feature of our for
eign policy and as long as we possess
both the will and the strength to make
it effective. This last point, my fellow
citizens, is all important, and is one
which as a people we can never afford
to forget. I believe in the Monroe
doctrine with all my heart and soul; I
am convinced that the immense ma
jority of our fellow-countrymen so be
lieve in it; but I would infinitely prefer
to see us abandon it than to see us put
it forward and bluster about it, and yet
fail to build up the efficient fighting
strength which in the last resort can
alone make it respected by any strong
foreien power whose interest it may
ever happen to be to violate it.
Boasting and blustering are as objec
tionable among nations as among indi
viduals, and the public men of a great
nation owe it to their sense of national
self-respect to speak courteously of
foreign powers, jnst as a brave and self
respecting man treats all around him
courteously. But though to boast is
bad, and causelessly to insult another,
worse; yet worse than all is to be guilty
of boasting, even without insult, and
when called to the proof to be unable to
make such boasting good. There is a
homely old adage which runs: "Speak
softly and carry a big stick; and you
will go far."
The First Clear Night.
(By the Prospect Star Club.)
It is astonishing how little people
know about the stars that nightly pass
in silence over their heads. These
are the same stars that stood out there
in the blue sky before you were born,
before Columbus with their aid dis
covered America; yes, they were there
"in the beginning." In the oldest
writings of the oldest nations we find
these same stars described. We find
them mentioned in the Old Testament
books of Job and Amos. Yet if we
happen to look at them at all we show
but a passing interest in them.
The first clear night at eight o'clock,
look northward. You will easily make
out the Great Bear, or Big Dipper as it
is usually called. It is composed of
seven very bright stars. The cup of
the dipper is inverted at this hour,
Tne last two stars on the outer side of
the cup were named Dubhe -and Merak
by the ancients. They are best known
as the "Pointers" because they point to
the North Star, Dubhe being the nearer
one to the North Star
The North Star being almost directly
in line with the earth's axis, appears in
the same place from night to night, if
we were at the North Pole, it would be
exactly overhead. Around the North
or Pole Star all the other stars make a
great circle in a days time. Some of
the most northern constellations or
star-groups never set but are visible in
all positions. But those farther away
from the Pole Star are only visible to us
in part of their circle, rising in the east
and setting in the west [A neat device
for showing this daily rising and setting
is Whittaker's Plainsphere, published
by T. Whittaker, 2 and 3 Bible House,
New York, Price 65 cents, postpaid. ]
The North Star is very distant from
us, so far indeed, that it takes its light
forty-eight years to reach the earth.
This is a long distance, for light, altho
not instantaneous, is very swift, the
swiftest thing in the universe, traveling
twelve million miles in a minute.
Next week we will become acquaint
ed with some more of the prominent
constellations. This will do for a be
ginning. "If you want to know
eternity and live—look at the stars "
