Governor Pennypacker on Monday
approved the bill authorizing James
RUBS, of the Commonwealth Hotel,
Harrisburg.to bring suit in the Dauphm
county court against the State. This
bill is one of the echoes of the trip made
bwthe Legislature to New York in the
spring of 1897 to participate in the dedi
cation of the Grant tomb. Mr. Russ
was the caterer on that occasion, and
furnished such a magnificent feast that
the Legislature passed the bill appro
priating money to pay the bill with but
little opposition. In round figures the
bill was $6,000. Governor Hastings,
however, was of the opinion that those
who had participated in the feast should
pay the bill, and he vetoed the appro
priation In 1899 the Legislature passed
a bill authorizing Mr. RUSH to bring
suit in the Dauphin county court to re
coyer the sum alleged to be due him,
and Governor Stone vetoed it. At the
session of 1901 no effort was made to
again pass such a bill, Governor Stone
still being in the executive chair, but
this year Mr. RUSH' friends feeling that
an injustice had been done him. intro
duced the bill through Senator Dewalt
and it passed with small opposition, and
the Governor has approved it. Mr.
Russ will at once set the legal ma
chinery in motion in the Dauphin conn
ty court, and the State will be defend
ant in a suit for the collection of the
Till-; Supreme Conrt of the United
States has jnat derided another of the
elective franchise cases involving State
constitutional provisions avowedly de
signed a prevent negroes from voting.
As in all other cases, the decifion is ad
verse to the claimant, it being held in
effect that the franchise is a matter of
State regulation, in so far as the selec
tion of these allowed to exercise it is
concerned, outside the express provis
ions of the Fifteenth Amendment to the
Constitution. The present case is rather
a novel one, inasmuch as it referred to
registration, which is a necessary pre
cedent to votintr. The majority of the
court held that it had no jurisdiction,
from which three justices dissented
It was officially stated in Washington,
Monday, that the United States is still
awaiting an answer from Russia in re
gard to the scope of the demands she
has made upon China, especially in re
gard to the proposed exclusion of foreign
consuls from Manchuria and the non
opening of more treaty ports.
The Chinese minister. Sir Chentung
Liang-Cheng and the Japanese min
ister, Mr. Kogoro Takahira, called on
Secretary Hay that day. The latter
asked whether the United States was
inclined to withdrawn its objection to
the closing of the open door. What
y answer Secretary Hay made to this is
not known.
A most sensational development of the
investigation of postoffice department
affairs occurred just before the depart
ment closed last Thursday when Post
master General Payne announced the
summary dismissal of James M Tyner,
assistant attorney general for the post
office department, coupling with the
announcement the startling charge that
all the papers and records in the safe of
the latter's office had been abstracted
by Mrs. Tyner, wife of the discharged
official, with the assistance of others.
The postmaster general states that Mrs
Tyner has refused the demand of the
government for the return of tVie papers
taken, and said the circumstances in
the case will be submitted by him to
the department of justice next morn
ing. On Saturday General Tyner,
through his attorney, returned the miss
ing papers to the P. M. General.

RUSSIA'S determination to retain
possession of the Chinese province of
Manchuria, contrary to treaty, makes
h.-r commercial interests conflict with
those of Japan, on the Japan Sea, and
may be followed by a war between the
two nations, into which some European
nations may by drawn.
Business -Morality.
Ex-District Attorney Philbin of New
York told a story the other day, as an
example cf average business morality,
of a commission merchant who boasted
that he once sold only a t>ortion of a
consignment made to him for the money
that the consignor expected, and con
verted the remainder to his own nse.
This raises the question whether snch
extremely loose views of honesty really
represent business ethics.
As a witness on the other side the
words of a prominent business man at
the head of a great department store
are quoted. He says: "1 can afford to
lose in a transaction, bnt I cannot afford
to have my customer lose. * * * He
must learn to trust me implicitly with
regard to my goods and to see that I
would much prefer to suffer than to
have bim suffer. I must make my cus
tomer my friend."
There is no doubt that, even consider
ed as enlightened self-interest, there is
a much higher standard in the second
statement than in the first. But it should
also be recognized that its truth depends
on a factor not stated. The merchant
cannot afford to let his customer suffer
from misrepresentation or defect if the
customer can go elsewhere to get the
goods. The only reason why the state
ment is true lies in the loss of trade
that would result if the customer is in
jured. But if the merchant were the
only one of whom the customer could
buy any given goods then he could af
ford, so far as pecuniary penalty is con
cerned, to let the customer suffer the
loss from inferior goods or hidden de
fects better than to pocket that loss him
The universality of the rule stated in
the second case depends on open and
free competition. Wherever competi
tion i 3 suppressed by combination the
losses from unfair dealing, and even
from dishonesty, can l>e imposed on the
buyers with impunity.—Dispatch.

A Hini«lre«l learn Ago.
John Fulton and Annie Hays, his
wife, came to Butler county in
and their son. Nelson Fnlton of Middle
sex twp., is yet hale and hearty in his
69th year John Fulton died in 1557.
Samuel Fulton came to the county in
and his daughter. Mrs Nancy
Mahan, wife of W. A. Mahan,
is yet living in Middle
sex, aged about 72 year*.
These notes are in answer to a note in
our issue of March 26th last, which
read: Butler was surveyed a hundred
years ago. How many men are yet liv
ing the county whose fathers lived here
then 1 We would like each and every
one of them to send us his name with
some account of his family.
The First Clear Nlglit.
In speaking of the solar system la9t
week, it was said that besides the plan
ets, revolving about the sun were aster
oids, comets and meteors. The aster
oids were explained as remains of a
former planet that had undergone re
peated explosions. The comets are im
mensely bulky masses of gaseous sub
stance that haye somehow beome inhab
itants of the solar system. They are
thousands of times as large as our sun,
but the weight of any one of them is
comparatively insignificant, perhaps as
great as that of the earth's atmosphere
The comets are supposed in their flight
through inter stellar space to have come
near enough to the solar system to be
drawn in or captured by one of the
planets and compelled to revolve about
the central sun.
The meteors or "shooting stars" are
not so well understood, though they
are evidently related to the comets, for
the orbits of comets and meteoric
swarms are often identical. Meteors
only shine when they come in contact
with the earth's air, the light being due
to the heat of friction. Most of them
actually do "fall" to the earth; usually
however, after being pulverized by the
intense heat.
The study of the planets has shown
great similarity between them. They
all revolve in the same direction in el
liptical orbits; they all rotate on inclin
ed axes, many have satellites, etc. How
did these things come to be? The simi
larity of condition points to a similarity
of origin. The generally accepted ex
planation is that the solar system has
gradually developed into what it is now.
This explanation is called the Nebular
According to it the whole solar sys
tem is supposed at one tine to have
been an immense "nebula," or cloud of
gaseous particles separated from each
other and acted upon by gravitation
These particles, attempting to reach the
centre of gravity, in battering against
each other developed intense heat and
collected ill a globe with a rotary mo
tiou upon an axis. As this globe con
tinued to contract, it rotated more
swiftly, bulged out at the equator and
formed thickened belts or rings which
it successively abandoned. These rings,
believed to be like the rings of Saturn,
finally broke and collected together in
masses or planets which continued to
revolve about the sun developing rota
tion on an axis at the same time. Each
planet, by continuing this process, pro
duced its existing satellites.
This is the Nebular Thory. It is a
guess, but the most probable, at the or
igen of the solar system. It explains
nearly all the known facts.
It does not do away with creation.for
it begins by assuming t.he nebula and
the force of gravitation. There is meth
od in the solar system. There must
have been method in the creating of it.
This method the nebular theory at
tempts to explain.
I'at, Just Over.
As I was walking down Butler's mane
A sassy polaceman I chanced for til
He looked strate in me face and he gave
me some fan,
Haying whence came you over from
Erin go braugh?
I grabed my shelalah right tight in my
And around his bitr boddy I caused it to
The paple came round me like a parcel
of gase.
Saying catch that wild Irishman he
struck the polace.
They kicked me, they cuffed me—at me
they swore.
Saying what brought you over from
Erin's grane shore.
I t<>uld thhem praties had failed, 1 had
nothing for til ate,
And I wanted to be a bould polaceman
and slape on me bate.
Then the wild mob howled and said
take him till the jail,
He will lie there a long time before he
finds bail;
Just then Mayor Kennedy came along
he took in the sight,
His kind heart was moved to pity at my
sad plight.
He said I know yon are a Pat by the cut
of your hair,
I know you are a pat by the clothes that
you wear.
Then Mayor Kennedy dispersed the
wild, jeering mob,
Saying come to my office and I will give
you a job.
Now Paddy in his fine uniform struU on
the strate,
And like his brother palacemen he
slapes on his bate.

Ciir«t of Thanks.

Mr. and Mrs. Ariodante Corsini wish

Many people go to bed —not to sleep
but to think—to tnmble and toss—to gel
up, walk about until tired Nature gives
way and a few fitful hours of sleep are
obtained jnst before dawn—a sleep that
does not rest—a sleep from which one
wakes weary and tired, wholly unfitted
to take up the daily routine of house
hold. shop or office duties. That this
condition goes on uncared for is almost
criminal, when the well-known, time
tried and tested powers of Dr. A. W
Chase's Nerve Pills to give restful
natural sleep have been so fully proven
in such cases.
Mrs Maggie Edwards of 246 West St.,
Bntler, Pa . says:—"My l>oy, aged 11
years, >vho by reason of overwork ran
down—could not eat or rest. He was
nervous and did not sleep well at night.
He needed lifting up and I got some of
Dr. A. W. Chase's Nerve Pills for him
at D. H. Wnller's Drug Store 112 South
Main St. The medicine has acted in a
more than satisfactory manner. He
sleeps finely now— strength coming back
now—nerves steady and sleeping well.
There is no question but that a short
time will put him right again. The
gain in health has been very rapid."
