tho House of Representatives on Tues
day last, and adjourned on Thurs
day morning. Tho scenes witnessed

From beginning to end a bitter fight

and his enemies.
Cardoza wns cleaned out by Elliott,
and when the Convention broke up
tho watery eyed Treasurer looked
like a whipped house cat. Elliott
accused him with having attempted to
sell out the Republican parly iu the
Inst campaign, and proved it by sever
al witnesses in the Convention. Car
dozr. accused Elliott with having bor
rowed money from him, which the
Spcnker of the House replied to by
saying, "1 had to do so because I am a
poor man, never having robbed the
Trcnsury. You have had good
chances to grab from the public crib
and well have you acquitted your

ten or twenty per cent proposition to
his "creditors"Jon the dollar.
A business man in difficulties calls
with a long face, on one of his princi
pal creditors, and says :
"Mr. Prompt, I find, owing to the
pressure of the times," I thai] be oblig
ed to call a meeting ol my creditors."
f'Indoed'," said Prompt, "then you
can not meet your liabilities."
Debtor?'I regret to say I cannot."'
Prompt?'Well, let me sec, how
long have you been in business?'
Debtor?'About eight years.'
Prompt?'How much capital did
you have to start with?'
Debtor (proudly)?'I had only one

Prompt?'How much would that

Debtor?'Well, il l could go right
on with the old stock, I might realize
a couple of thousand dollars, but the
creditors couldn't do to much with it.,
Prompt?'But how about your
house in the suburbs? Thnt goes in

Debtor?'Well " hardly. That's
only worth eix or seven thousand

Prompt?'H'm, hum ! Let mc see;

Debtor?'I should, at a rough cal- j

Prompt (indignantly)?'Why, con

that have been cheating pad are
cheating honest men either through
your rascality or accursed ignorance.
You haven't been solvent, according
to your own confession, the whole
eight years you have been in trade,
I'll be bound. Hero you acknowl
edge you started with only one thou
sand dollars of real capital; you have
your family living eight years, saved
out a $7,000 house, and after settling
with your creditors will have double
the capitpl you began with. Such
men as you have no right to bo 'in
business for themselves, but should be
the employees of those who have
brains to guide them. I'll accept no
proposition, and on only wish creditors
instead of 'setting on their leet" such
shams as you to compete with gen
uine business men, would send you
back into*'the ranks where you be

It will be remembered that the
Council levied, for the benefit of the
Fire Department, a tax of one mill,
(which will not realize more than
two hundred ($200); at their last meet
ing they appropriated to the use of |
V. A. and Comet Companies, for
hose &c, about two hundred and
fifty ($250), which will exceed the
levy by say $50. Query: Is it
right for Council to spend the whole
of the levy, and more too, to improve
these tico Companies, when there are
other Companies representing the
Fire Department, and the third as
needy as the two above named ?

The anti-Chinese agitation in Cali
fornia is no^y being avowedly ncgi-i
ncered with a view to forcing the
Chinese immigration question into the
approaching presidential canvass.
Since the decision of the United
States supreme court declaring the
head money tax unconstitutional, it
has dawned upon the California dama
gogues who would exclude cheap la
borers from their state?which more
than any other in the union is suffer
ing for lack of laborers?that so long
as the Burlingame treaty stands
I Chinese immigration cannot be ob
structed, and their movement is to
I fetch a pressure to bear upon congress
j for the abrogation of that treaty, and
the anti-Chinese mass meetings arc
held to bring this about. Their boast
is that upon that issue will depend the
electoral votes of California, Oregon
and Nevada, and that the contest is so
close these cannot be ignored. To
aid in importing the Chinese ques
tion into national politics, the San
Francisco Chronicle, independent re
publican, republishes, with high
laudatory approval, an old speech of |
Governor Hendricks, in which he de
alares that Chinese immigration
should be excluded altogether. This
evidently is designed by the Chronicle
as notice to the republicans that it is
season to put in their bid on the
Chinese question for the electoral
vote of the Pacific states. The San
Francisco Bulletin, also independent
republican, and probably the most
influential journal on "the const, also
significantly remarks of the agitation
for abrogation of tho treaty that, "if
it is to be attempted, the season of
congress preceding a presidential
election is the most promising. The
democratic house, if a show of unani
mity and determination can bcpie
sented, will not be disposed to throw
away the votes of the Pacific states
for wo presume Nevada and Oregon
will bo with us in this mat' or. The
republicna senate will be likely to bo
swayed by precisely the same motive."
Among the possibilities of the ap
proaching national canvass may thori
foro bo reckoned a discussion ot this
Chinese problem, which may fan the
trades union communistic spirit to a

The new Methodist Church at
Ninety-Six was dedicated on last
Sabbath week with imposing cere
monies. Bishop Wightmau preached
the sermon and was assisted in the

The church was built mainly by the

named St. Paul's.

carotid arteries. This caused an
aneurism an large as a hen's egg.
Three weeks after the accident, Dr.

An intelligent and thrifty farmer
ays: "But for the co-opcrdtiSn of
my boys I Should have failed. 1
worked hard, and so did they. The
eldest is near twenty-one, and other
boys in the neighborhood, younger,
have left their parents. Mine have
stuck to me when I most heeded their
services. I attribute this result to
the fact thnt I have tried to make
home pleasant for Shcir?. I have
furnished them with attractive and
useful reading; and when the night
comes, and the day's labor is ended,
instead of running with other boys to
the railway station and adjoining
towns, they gather around the great
lamp and become absorbed in their
books, and papers." Such is sub
stantially the testimony of a farmer
who has known bow hard the struggle i
for a footing on free soil without capi
tal is, and how valuable and com
paratively cheap arc the aids which
good reading brings to him.

about half a dozen of the best and
