Thus it has been that Campbell and Wil

more work for the defeat of Mr.Ca.rse and
the endorsement of Collins at the recent

and nerve largely that the old members

their eyes, and that Collins, the up

bell, therefore, who worked for the
elevation of his kin, was aided and

The sensational school house scandal
at Port Byron seven months ago will be
readily recalled to the minds of the read
era of the A nous. Two young Tort Bv-
ron men had been in the habit of enjoy
ing nightly carousals in tbe school house
there in company with two colored dam
sels of that place. It will also be remem
bered that on the last trip to the school
bouse, the j mi tor, who had been keeping
a lookout to discover the parties who had
o frequently entered the building, dis
covered them, and their arrest soon fol
lowed. The case hung on for some time
and finally one of the young men sudden
ly departed. Now the Mo'.ine Republican
has learned that it looks as if it would
have been better for the other if be also
had vanished, or better yet, if he bad
conducted himself properly. For, it is al
leged, the affair has taken another sensa
tional turn, and the colored woman now
has undisputable claims on the affection
and protection of one of tbe young men,
and that to prevent trouble tbe young
man will be required to take out a mar
riafle license, aud soon we may expect to
hear of a wedding being consummated
between tbe two.

About a year ago a branch of tbe Mer

local business men became subscribers to

to collect bad debts and furnish to the

reliable debtors. It cost each member $6
to go into, tbe concern, and this morniug
drafts came through Mitchell & Lynde's
bank on each of tbe subscribers for
amounts varying from $1 to $3 for dues

Sugar and Wool, However, Are Steered
In the Other Direction Speaker Reed
Shelve the Silver Bill for Awhile
What the President Woaild Probably Do
with a Free Coinage Meaanre Official
Washington City. June 19. The senate
seems to "have it in" for tbe house all
along the Hue. The way the "upper
house" sat down on the silver bill was a
caution, and now the tariff bill comes in
(or treatment which, though not so radi
cal, will nevertheless give both houses a
good deal of trouble when it gets into con
ference, unless the senate shall refuse to
indorse the many changes made. The knife
has been applied all through the bill and
duties reduced in a large percentage of the
cases where changes have been made.
The reductions, however, are generally
small, but in many canes may be as effect
ive in blocking an agreement as if they
were large. The tobacco scheduls is left
as it was in tbe house bill. Almost all of
the internal revenue features introduced
by tbe houne were struck out by the com
mittee. The most important of these re
late to the tax on tobacco, the manufac
ture of vinegar from the evaporation of
alcohol and the fortification of wines.
Changes That Make an Jncreajte.
In the sugar schedule the bounty of 2
cents per pound is extended to maple
sugar. No bounty is given for less than
500 pounds of sugar annually. -A duty of
0.3 cent per pound is put on sugars be
tween No. 13 and No. 16 Dutch standard,
(free in the house bill), and tbe duty on
sugars above No. 16 is increased from 0.
cent to 0.6 cent per pound. This is one
of the most important increases in the
bill, and the wool schedule presents some
more changes in the direction of increase.
The Dot lea oa Wool.
In the wool schedule the duty on woolen
and worsted yarns, valued at not more
thau 30 cents per pound, is to be two and a
half times the duty imposed on a pound of
unwashed wool of the first clasa, instead
of twice that -duty; and on woolen and
worsted cloths, knit fabrics, and manu
factures of every description made wholly
or in part of wool valued at not more than
30 cents the duty per pound is to be three
times the duty imposed on a pound of un
washed wool of the first class instead of
wice that duty. On blankets, hats, and
flaunels for underwear, valued at not
more than 30 rents per pound the dnty is
to be the same as that imp me I on lv
pounds of wool of the flr.it class, instead
of 1 pound.
The Tax on Earthenware.
In the earthenware schedule, glass and
glassware, uiiennmerated, covered by six
paragraphs in the house bill, are consoli
dated into one paragraph, including mir
rors (small) and lenses, wholly or par
tially manufactured, and the duty on
them is fixed at 45 per cent, ad valorem.
(This is in tbe nat ure of a large general
retfcuction.) Unpolished cylinder.crown and
common window glass is reduced 1.8 cents
per pound throughout. Decorated china is
cut from t!0 per cent, ad valorem to 65 per
cent.; plain china from 55 per cent, to 50
per ceut.; earthenstone and crockery ware
nnenumerated from 55 per cent, and 60
per cent to 50 per cent.
Reductions In the Metal Scbeclnle.
In the metal schedule iron or steel rails
are reduced from $13.44 to $11.20 per ton;
cold polished iron or steel from 1 ?i cents
per pound to ,V cent; copper in iron ore
(containing more than 2 per cent, of cop
per) from 1 cents to cent per pound;
anvils from 2' cents per pound to 2 cents;
cast hollow ware from 3 cents per pound
to 2 cents. The duty on steel billets val
ued at 1.8 cents per pound and less is
reduced 1.1 cent on each class. Class No.
2 of hoop-iron or steel, dutiable at 1.1
cents per pound, is made to include iron
from 10 to 20 wire gauge, and class
No. 3, dutiable at 1.3 cents per
pound is made to include iron thinner
than twenty wire gauge. The additional
duty imposed on iron plates and hoop
iron is made K cent per iionnd instead of
4 cent. The provision that after July 1,
1861, manufactures of which tin plate is
tbe chief part shall pay in addition to the
rata of duty upon tin plates an ad valorem
duty of 35 per cent, is struck out. The
provision making 45 per cent, ad valorem
the minimum duty on chains is struck
In the wood schedule sawed boards are
reduced from $1.50 to 1 per 1,000 feet. In
the flax, eta, schedule binding-twine is
raised from cents to 14 cents per
pound: cotton bagging is reduced from
1.6 and 1.8 cents to 1.3 and 1.5
cents. Sisal or manilla yarn is divided
into two classes, one valued at 5 cents per
pound or less, on which the duty is 2 cents
per pound; the other of greater value, on
which the duty is 40 per cent, ad valorem.
In the house bill both classes paid 30 per
The cotton goods schedule is generally
reduced. The drawback on salt used for
meats for export ts struck out. The chem
ical schedule is reduced all along the line,
except in a few cases, notably opium,
which is increased. The bounty for silk
is struck out.
PROSPECTS OF THE SILVER BILL.
Reed Futa It Where It Will Sleep for a
"Washington City, June 19. Speaker
Reed has prepared a surprise for the silver
men in the bouse, and one that will not
be agreeabla After the vote yesterday in
which Bland's attempt to have the bill
immediately ' considered was defeated,
the speaker, . under one of the new
rules, referred the measure to the
committee on coinage, weights and
measures. If the bill could be put
before the house there is little doubt that
it would be put through in tbe form in
which it came from the senate.
Heed Anticipates a Ulffloulty.
The speaker, anticipating this difficulty
whenever the bill should be laid before the
house, went over the rules carefully, and
after consultation with the leaders on the
Republican and with Bland and the side
principal advocates of free coinage, deter
mined that under the rules the bill need
not be laid before the house at all, and
that the reference of it was a formal mat
ter which the clerk could attend to. The
bill will now he considered by the commit
tee and returned to the house with recom
mendations as to the senate amendment.
It will take It place at the foot of the cal
endar to tie called up on motion at any
time. Before it is considered it will
be doubtsess made the subject of caucus
action. ''?: : - .
The President's Probable Action.
If tbe bill finally paases the house the
question is, will Gen. Harrison sign itf
The administration has all along been op
posed to free coinage, but the president is
in a position now to act for what he may
believe to be the best interests of the coun
try. It is given out as direct from tbe
president that he will not run for a second
term. If this is so, it frees him from all
political complications, and be can act on
his own responsibility without embarrass
ing tbe party. If his convictions are for a
veto, be will not sign the silver bill; but
if, after investigation, he finds the will of
the majority is beat, he will put his name
to the bill.

to Senators Teller and Wolcott, who pre

this seemed to lie the policy of the office.

THE OTHER TWIN TALKS.
The Skullduggery Causing More Kxclte
nient Than a Cyclone.
ST. Pait June 19. There is more ex
citement in the Twin Cities over the ar
rest of seven census enumerators in Min
neapolis on the charge of making false re
turns, and the capture of half a dozen
sacks filled with completed census
sheets, than if a cyclone had
swept over Minnnesota. Residents
of St. Paul are indignant over
the detection of an alleged attempt to in
flate the population of the other twin,
while the citizens of Minneapolis are
stirred up es they never have been before,
and with one voire assert that a high
handed and infamous outrage has been
toting for the Supervisor Net.
Warrants for the arrest, of Supervisor
Davenport, of Minneapolis, and five more
of his enumerators have leen sworn out,
but as yet tbey have not lieen served. Col.
B mdinot. l he inswctor of the census bu
reau, dispatched to VinncapoliR to investi
gate the alleged frauds, mailed his report
to Superintend.-nt Porter lad. evening. Its
tenor he refused to divulge, but it is
learned that he expects to receive instruc
tions from Superintendent Porter to make
a recount in Miuueaimlis, and, it may be,
in St. Paul also. The census returns of
Minneapolis held in this city, and which
the Minneapolis officers tried to capture
yesterday morning, are the strongest link
in the chain of evidence against the enum
erators. INDIAN BUCKS ON PARADE.

read with intense interest came from the
White House yesterday. It is no less than
a positive declaration by President Harri
son that he will not be a candidate for re
nomination under any consideration or
circumstance. The president, it appears,
made up his mind some time ago not to
seek the presidential nomination again.
He did not think it necessary to make any
announcement of the fact, although it was
assumed by thousands of party men that
in the natural course of things he would
be a candidate for a second term.
How the Story Hot Out.
Indeed, the announcement was made
yesterday in the moet casual way. The
president was in conversation with an in
timate friend at the White House, and the
talk turned on the silver bill. Incidentally
national politics was mentioned, and tbe
president expressed himself quite freely,
lie said among other things that he had
made up his mind not to be a candidate
for renomination, and that at the end of
his present term he intends to settle in
Indianapolis again and resume the prac
tice of the law. The president's declara
tion touching his relation to the nest pres
idential nomination, made, as it waa, with
out reserve, was soon in wide circulation,
and afforded a topic for conversation that
in interest subordinated all other topics
for the time.

Bennett law, and has written and spoken
in Uhalf of it, while Mr. Xieman, who was
a Mugwump in 1SS4, has as earnestly op
posed it in his paper.

The natural sequence was ridicule of Mr.
Felker in The Journal, and caustic crit
icism of The Journal by the Oshkosh at
torney. The two met in the cafe of the
club house Tuesday evening, and engaged
in a spirited argument, which ended with
Mr. Xieman giving the lie ami receiving a
slap across the face, which was evidently
