may be regarded as a reflex of the Do

the reciprocity resolution Introduced
into the United States Senate Monday
by Senator Sherman. Speaking of the
terms of Ibe resolution. It will say
"This proposition seems to us admirablv

to take up the whole question of the

of a reciprocity arranccment Unlike
the projects of Mr. Wlman. .Mr. Hltt,
Mr. Ituttcrworth and the Canadian

ample scope for negotiation, mutual

however, Is ono of tbo most Influential

It is qulto possible ho will havo tho sup

the Legislature, is editor, declares itself
opposed to the election of Delamater as
Governor, and calls the State of Penn
sylvania "a reproach In the eyes of the
nation" because of "Its abject subserv

commercial politicians. It says:
"The Commonwealth has permitted
itrelf to become the plaything of conn
tcrfclt statesmen, who, in utter disre-
?:ard of every principle of manhood and
lonor, have selected as their candidates
for office the most pliant and submis

publican party In the Keystone State
has been thwatted and dwarfed until It
has become n common machine for the
elevation to power and ploco of a set
of unscrupulous Incompetents."
The Truth further declares "It high
time Republicans shake off baneful boss
domination, and boss and boodlo poll
tics," and says: "Tho present campaign
affords ample opportunity for giving
both these vicious Inlluences the

people should elect a Legislature
pledged to the realization of ballot re

only one of thu kind In the country.
borne time ago Senator Jones, while
conversing with a friend, Mr. C. C.
Goodwin of Salt Lake, said that the joy
of his life was riding upon the cable
cars of San Francisco, and that the
miieiy of his life was trying to And
tbe nickels to pay for his trips.
Mr. Goodwin went to .Messrs. Joslin
A- Park of Salt Lake and gave them an
Idea of the kind of cane he would like
them to make for Senator Jones, and
the idc 1 was carried out. The head of
the csne Is hollow, and In It are placed
a number of nickels. A pressure on
the bead of the stick releases a five
cent piece. It Is likely that the street
cars will be well patronizetl by the
Governor West. In his speech, referred
to wliat Senator Jones had done on the
sliver question and predicted the future
goed results of the Senator's action.
The miners, he said, were all friends of
Senator Jones, In thanking Governor
West for his eloquent speech, referred
to tbe great progress made by the
towns and cities beyond the mountains,
which were built by tbe toll of the
laboring man. He said he had always
been tlte friend of tbe miners, and was
determined that their silver dollar
should be worth a dollar In gold. The
Senator said that all had not been done
for silver tbat would be done, but that
the Silver bill was good enough so far
as it goes.

case of suicidal mania has come to

cured. He staunched the How of Wood,
fearing to leave her long enough to go
for a doctor.
Again he fell asleep, when the woman
made her way Into (he cellar and tried
to beat out her brains with an axe. Mr.
Spiegel found her unconscious in the
(lliili)ir room, wbltber she had crawled.

constituted a strong dose A doctor
was then sent for, who brought her out

attempts to kill herself as soon as she

strangle herself by drawing tbe pieces
of coid tightly about her neck, and
afterward by stuffing a part of a sheet

She wanted to get up and go t tbe

Travelers who have entered the terrl
tort of all the Ktiropeim monarchies
ami despotisms lose their mthnstatm for
the free Institutions of America when
tliry strike Its custom houses. In Eng
land thev are asked whether their bag
gage contains any tobacco, spirits or
Kngllsh reprints. When a traveler w
piles In the negative he Is allowed to
depatt without upsetting the contents
of his trunk. In France, Germany,
ltelelnm, Italy and other Knropenn
countries the baggage is I rely opened,
and the traveler Is rarely subjected to
the formality nf an examination as to
his ident ty. When, however, he wils
for the Untied States he Is informed on
shipboard that he imtt rill up a blank,
giving the following Information:
Country to which he brlonea.
Count ry to which he Is Koine.
Number of piece of baggage.
The official Mint who prenred that
blank did not know that the Information
he strove to obtain respecting age and
sex was utterly worthless for statistical
purposes, Wause he did not know the
ages or sex of those who left the coun
try or of those who entered by way of
the Canadian frontier.

given to him.
After a tedious delay tbe passenger
riacbesthe dock and then presents hi J
check to the chief inspector, who de
tails a fubnidlnste to s e whether the
passenger has rierjured himself.
This Is a chilling welciuue to tbe land
of the free.
A lady onlv recently returned from a.
prolorgid Continental trip declares,

at New Yoik, that it was the only un
pleasant exiierience sbe bad ever haul in

not only ransacked but where, a ship
load of passenger Is often forced to ru

tbe customs otticUU refuse to examine
their baggage. When tbe Inspector Is
secured courtesy is not always extended
if anything Is discovered which he
thinks is dutiable. Generally he does
not know. Any per cent, of the pur
chasing value is charged, and tbe Gov
erntueut does aot always receive tbe
w bole amount.
No doubt much smuggling Is done.
Tbls could be largely corrected if more
judgment were used, but travelers are
treated like criminals, which leads
them to "declare" nothing aad to claim
all as "personal."
It is niiat unreasonable to suppose

Why should the officers not be
