A few mornings ago he was unable
to como to his shop because of u so

such is tho way of life.

Tho Hog Combino sheet ot the

Amalgamate is a good thing,
but tho fusion of u Democratic edi
tor with republican Senatorial can
didates must surely result in dis
comfiture for both.
Josio's frequent trips to tho West

pose of enlarging tho usefulness of

For Libel Reform.
The Pennsylvania Editorial As
sociation at its next meeting will
act upon n report of h committee
appointed to draft a now libel law.
Tho proposed law is intended to
prevent criminal prosecutions whero
there is no element t)f crime, und to
prevent the recovery of damages
when no damages havo been suH'i-r-ed.
There is not a feature of the
proposed measure that does not
hold criminal libel-that is libel pub
lishod maliciously to tho injury of
others to the strictest accountabili
ty, or that does not hold that any
newspaper, whether by accident or
intention, inllictsdamugi h iih.mi un
person, shall pay tho full measure of
damag.i thus inflicted. The new bill
offers no protection to licentious
journalism, and affords the grout ust
protection to every good cilien.
Ihis provision is a very r essury
ono to halt tho speculative libel suits
now common in every section of the
country, usually inspired by lawyers
who degrade their profession to
contingent contracts, ami who bring
actions with the hope of forcing (In
