The Union's direct snub of Judge

P oria Ilenl.l.
While George Hunt is making such
a spectacle of himself in trying to
knock out what he is pleased to term
the gerrymander of 189:1." he- has
offered a gratuitous and utterly un
called for insult to the republican
justices of the supreme court of this
state. Hunt assumes that the court
will declare the apportionment un-
constitutional because a majority of
the justices of the court are republi
can. Mr. Hunt nntst have a very
poor opinion of the republican jus
tices of that court.
It wonld have been bad enough had
some fool democratic shyster based
an action on the supposition thut the
justices would render an absolutely
Iiartlsnn opinion. I'.ut when George
lunt, who has Irecn the attornev
f'nncral of thi state, and is r rsonnl
y attainted with the jtt:ico of
the supreme court proclaims opcnlv
that he expects a decision on parti
san grounds there is reason for be
lieving that Mr. Hunt has no other
ground for his action, and still bet
ter reason to believe that Mr. Hunt
and his case will be thrown out of
the window by the justices.

MORE TARIFF TALK
Further Development of the
Democratic Plan ' i
TO GET A VOTE ON THE MEASURE.
Republicans Inclined to Make No Trouble
If Those Forty-three Votes for tha Bill
Materialize, in XVIilch Caae Obstruction
Would Not Ho' "Worth the Candle"
Great Number of Dangerous Derelict.
Adrift In the Atlantic.
WAsiitscTos.Mny 4. If the programme
which fat nndcr consideration for a com
promise on the tariff bill enn be arranged
so that forty-three Democratic votes can
be assured for it, an effort will bn made
to secure an- agreement with the Repub
licans upon a time for taking a vote. One
of the Republican leaders was informed
that it would be best to try to secure an
agreement as resistance after the com
promise had been agreed npon would
mean that forty-three Democrats would
sit early and 1 ite and insist upon such a
lengthening of hours as would mean a
deal of discomfort to all senators. He an
swered: "Of course, if you have the mat
ter arranged so t hut there is a sure ma
jority iu favor of the bill, we will have to
give in Home time, but uutil you couviuco
us ot it, we will fight."
Democrat. Are Confident.
The air of contldctice among the Demo
crat was somewhat dispiriting to the lte
liulilicnns who hnd b.-en working to break
up the conference. It npiienrs from a
cnrefii! estimate of the Democratic side
Hint the Populists have not been taken
into consideration, and for this reason it
is l!-licvcd that Senator Murphy will vote
for the bill. It is thought liy several
Democratic senators that Senators Allen,
Kyle, ntui Stewart will vote for the bill,
ns it is certain that the Republicans do not
count i:poa Stewart's vote to assist them
In defeating the bill, but some of them
have thought that Allen might vote
against it. If the compromise could not
lie arranged and it became apparent that
several IVmocnts were dissatisfied, it
was the hope of the Republicans to assist
in mukiug the bill still more unsatisfac
tory. Iise a Vote Here end There.
This would be done by trying to make
sugar free and by such cither amendments
as won id lose n vote here and there on the
Ih-mormtic sid and by lefusing to sup
port nmcntlmcuts which northern and east
ern senators might propose. If the com
promise which has been proposed should
1 carried out, it is expected then that
every one ol the forty-three Democrats
would support all the amendments ns
they were tillered by tho senators repre
senting the senators who arranged the
compromise. In that event the Republic
ans would consider it a fruitless effort to
try and talk the bill to death and would
find that the discussion of the various
schedules would not afford them much re
lief from the extra ptcssure which tho
Democrats put would on. If an agreement
can he reached npon a time for taking a
vote, it is quite likely tnat the 11 o'clock
meeting hour will tic abandoned and the
bill will not take an unusuul course.
DANGER TO NAVIGATION.
Tnlnable Infiirnmtloti t'linrerning Dere
tirt. In the North Atlantic.
Washington, Muy 4. The growing im
portanee of the kubject of derelicts, or
aliandoned vrssels in the Xorth Atiuntie,
the interest manifested by the press and
the probability of an extra arrangement
with the Iiritish government for concerted
action in reporting and destroying these
menaces to navigation, bos caused the
publication by Commander C. D. Sigsbe,
the naval hydrograpiicr, of a pamphlet,
giving a history und much valuable in
formation of these wrecks and derelicts
in the North Atlantic from 17 to ISO.
Some of the ligures are startling, show
ing as they do the great tiumber of
wrecks that arc Hunting iu the course of
oceau traffic, constituting perils some
times impossible to avoid.
In sevcu years there were seen as many
as U'.-J-s f these derelicts. During tho
p.ist tive years the iiumlier has lieen con
stantly increased, and while iu lfStsT they
n l:mls ml eighty-two, last year they
readied a;.'. The recorded increase is
probably not so much due to the actual
increase of derelicts as to the better effi
ciency of the system adopted for reKrting
them. Most ol thcsetlcreliclsnre sighted in
the Cull stream off the United States
coast north of 30" degress and west of GO
degrees, the number gradually decreasing
to the cast war J along the trans-Atlantic
routes. A number of those which remain
ailmit the longest time make a circuit of
the Surg::sso sea. The average period of
drift is alKiut thirty days, so there is an
average of nineteen derelicts constantly
Decided Against l'eauut Flour.
Washington, May 4. Consul General
Edwards at Berlin rejiorts that the ofli
cials of tho Cierman army and navy after
an exhaustive set of experiments have de
cided against the use of peanut Hour as
food for the troo and sailors or as horse
food. During the experiments no imme
diate health injuring symptoms were no
ticed, but the men showed an unconquer
able dislike to the food prepared with pea
nut flour or grits. Its frequent use can
not be regarded as healthful or nourish
ing and the food has Leen discontinued.
To Repeal State Bank Tax.
Washington-, May 4. Senator Walsh
has introduced a bill for the repeal of the
tax of 10 per cent, on the circulation of
state banks. Senator Walsh said in reply
to question that the bill was intended
to provide for unconditional repeal. "That
is what we want," he said. "We claim
that the federal government has nothing
to ito with the regulations of our state
bankiug institutions aud ask to have the
tlotB buuktax stricken from tb books."
It Is Coins; Awajr from Vm.
Washington, May 4. Assistant As
tronomer Ueorgc A. Hill of the naval ob
servatory baa sighted a large, bright
comet, just above the southwestern hori-
son. According to lTofessor Hill's calcu
lation tlie comet was 8,0UO,(iuu miles from
the eurth and going from us at the rate of
about live thousand miles a day.
Want a Mint at Beaver.
DtsvER, May 4. The committee on
mines and mining of the Chamber of Com

for the removal of the mint at Carson
City. New, to Denver, as to do so would
antagonis the Nevada people, and the

An Anarchist Dt Hantly C'onfr'ses.
liMios, May 4. Polti and Farnaro, the
Italian anarchists, are on trial at the Old

"Uuilty. I -.-anted to kill soma capital

WlLKtsuAlcuii, Pa,, May S. - Jacob
Gould, a relative of the late Jay (iould,
was adjudged insane. He was one of the
wealthiest residents ia Salem township,
but developed the insane idea that bis
property was depreciating in value, and

W hen placed on the stand he was unable

money shown him.
