WATSON, KLLLS.ANO KEBNKTXS.
The Best Variety Shew of the Season.
Last evening the best variety show of
the season was given in the opera house
by the "Watsen, Ellis and Kerncll com
pany. The house was net large, hut a
mere enthusiastic and better pleased au
dience has net sat there for some time.
The performance opened with an old sketch
entitled " A Practical Jeke." Alice Bate
man, a fine clog dancer, followed, after
which R. G. Allen played the banjo, told
stories and san songs in a taking style.
The horizontal bar performance of the
Suydani Brethers was excellent, their
equals net having appeared here this sea
son, if ever. Harry and Jehn Kerncll, the
Irish comedians, "caught" the house the
moment they came en the stage. They
were brimful of wit, and their reception
was of the warmest kind. Beth are
capital dancers and comedians and they
were recalled a number of times ; Clara
Moere, a pleasing little lady,
sang a number of songs, appear
ing in different costumes ; "Watsen
and Ellis form a strong Dutch team, and
there is probably no pair in this country
capable of surpassing them in their pecu
liar line of business. Thatcher and Hume
aie very geed acrobatic dancers, but their
singing was only fair. One of the best
features of the evening's show was
the club swinging of Gus Hill. He is very
graceful in all the difficult movements
which he makes, and throws, with appar
ent cake, clubs weighing ej pounds. The
comedy of " A Splendid Time," closed
the entertainment. It was extremely
funny, and Harry Watsen as Mr. Cehn
and Harry Kerncll as Mr. Oitcn almost
convulsed the audience with laughter. It
was the best variety show that has visited
us since Teny Paster was here last season
and deserved better patronage.
The Influx of Tobacco.
The favorable weather for the stripping
and shipping of tobacco continues, and from
early morning until the hour at which we
go te press te-day there has been the
greatest activity in the trade, all the ware
houses being thronged with farmers bring
ing in their crops, and the warehouse
men beinj: actively encased in re
ceiving it. It is estimated that te-day's
business is the largest of the season. It is
impost ible te make a fair estimate of the
amount actually received, but the buyers
seem te be satisfied with their purchases
and the farmers with the prices received.
OIT te Washington.

A Loese Calculation.
Seme "smart Alecks" would undertake
te disprove the calculation of the finance
committee of councils, that our bended
municipal debt is en the verge of the con
stitutional limit, by subtracting the sink
ing fund from the total bended indebted
ness. This is a (inancial error, approved
by no respectable authority en the subject
of public indebtedness or constitutional
law. The sinking fund is sacredly set
apart for a special purpose) te gradually
wipe out the debt. Ne debt can be created
hereafter without making such prevision
for its gradual redemption, and te count
e!T the sinking fund in calculating the
amount of the debt in law is only little
"better than te appropriate it at once te
paying dcpaitnicut deficiencies. Such
methods of calculation would only tend te
keep cities forever in debt, and te put
money into a sinking fund would be pour
ing water into a bottomless tub.

The Ceal Miners of the .Schuylkill Kclen
Net te Strike.
Seme time age the Knights of Laber in
Schuylkill county passed a resolution de
manding that basis wages should be paid
for mining after January 1, 1S80, and
threatening a strike if the demand was net
complied with. Uasis wages for December,
according te the
tec appointed by
exchange te fix -the monthly
which report will be published to-iner-row
are ten per cent, below the basis ;
but, as usual, the rule of the Philadelphia
and Heading company will govern the
matter and will raise the rate te eight per
cent, below basis. Fer January the rate
will be four per cent, below the basis.
An afternoon paper reports that there is
much dissatisfaction among the miners,
especially in the upper part of the county,
and that a strike is freely threatened. One
of the leaders of the order was asked
if the report was correct. "Ne," was
the reply. "I can answer that very
positively. A strike was talked of, but the
cooler heads of the order met. here last Sat
urday and squelched the whole business.
There will be no strike. There is no need
of one. The men are making fair wages,
and arc satisfied that they can gain noth
ing by such a movement. Nobody wants
te strike except a few het-heads, who arc
always dissatisfied. It was for the
special purpose of settling the grumblers,
by taking decisive action against them,
that Saturday's meeting was called, and
this eflieial action decides the business,
.for the present at least. The Schuylkill
tuen will net strike."

the city had been covered with .placards

Referring te Sawyer's criticisms and
challenges, Edisen says : " The secret of
his animosity te me lies in the fact that I
refused te have any business transactions
with him. Seme time age Sawyer wrote
me a note, which I still have. It was
couched in language something like this :
' Let bygones be bygones. Take me in with
you en your light. I will meet you at the
Aster house this evening at 8 o'clock te
talk it ever.' Well, I wrote him a' note
politely declining te meet him or te take
him into partnership." If Sawyer can get
that plaster off his mouth he will deserve
te be "taken in."
