sale nod rt:l dealer in oleomargarine of
Hlj, making an arsreirate loss from
the item of il.iiS.tH. This i due to
the fact that tne last congress changed
the special tasyear so as to commence on

therefore, on May 1 collectel only two
mouths' taxe from May 1 to July 1
instead of twelve months' tax;

The total amount of special taxes col

"There is a decrease in the amount col
lected from tobacco and snuff as com
pared with the amount collected during

The New York Orator's Eloquent La illa
tion or the Craft.
UTICA. N. V.. May The laying ot
the corner stone of the new borne for the
Masonic order in this state yesterday was
made the occasion of a large turn out of
members of the craft, fully 25,0 stran
gers being present m the city. The btilJ
ing will be three stories and basement,
and will cos: tlS2,000. There was a parade
with l,(Xtt men in line, and the day was
observed as a general holiday. The orator
of the day was Past Grand Master
Lawrence, and Chauncey M. Depew also
delivered an addres-, which was alril
The Stability of the Order.
Among otuer things he said: "Inst tu
tions do not survive tneir ages by acci
dent; thsy live only through the pos-es-sion
and operation of everlasting princi
ples. Dynasties have disappear;!;
thrones have crumbled; whole races have
leen annihilated; governments have suc
ceeded cce another witn a frequency
beyond the power of the historian to re
cord; civili z-ition itself ha risen tothe
hiahest excellence and then snnk in dark
aad oblivion. But Masonry has contin
ued ttrougn the centuries with tha sa ne
spirit of nn.versal brotherhool. of eq-l
democracy as existed by legtn 1 among .ts
Knows No Rank Nor Coiid.tion.
"Duriagaii these aces there have been no
tr.al for heresy or rewards for orthodoxy
in Masonic lodges. The di-ciplus of Iir.
Brigs and his adversaries are equa ly
welcome. Tne followers of Hebtr Ne v
ton, and those who would cast hiniojt
can find with us hospitanle homes. All
societies, si.ve the one which ce e
brates to day. are tLe creatures of loca.i
ties. nationality, or temporary em r
gency. But Masonry, marching under
tr.e leadership of God and the bann;r
which tears the motto 'Love Ihy Neigh
bor as ILyself,' with the peasant and
prince, the mechanic aud the mer
cnaut, the -workman and the millionairs,
the learned and the unlearned following
i n tqual rank and common step, fcnov s
neither race nor nationality; neitner ca!e
nor condition, as it proudly and beneli
ceutly moves down the centuries.
I. oval to All Governments.
"Masonry has been satis Si.-d in ail ages tf
the world to be loyal to all governments
under which it might lie, no matter what
their form, but has afforded to each mem
ber the fullest liberty as citizin or sul
ject to carry out and live up to his own
idea. It is only within the walls of his
own temple that, regardless of autocracy,
monarchy or republicanism without, th-e
Mason stand upon tbe plane and f-quar;
of a pure democracy. Our order could
live under Judaism and upon the comple
tion of Solomon's temple could carry ts
principles and faith into every part of the
civilized world. It could thrive under
the Roman empire without exciting ' ;
hostility or the jealousy of the Caesars,

Cincinnati. May 22. The People's par
ty does not propose to let the grass grow
under its feet. The banner has been
nailed to the mast, "organization and agi
tation" is tbe tattle cry. and before the
tints of autunn have commenced to dec
orate the foliage of the forest it is prom
ised that the most vigorous campaign
upon which any new prty Las ever en
tered will be iuaugurated. Kentucky, in
which state a third party bark was
launched but a couple of ntghts ago, is to
be the first field of operations, and all the
available oratorical batteries and fiuan
cial resources of the movement will be
brought into play.
Will Open up to Ohio and Iowa,
Ohio, too, is to come in tot especial at
tention, and already arrangements have
been made with half a dczen leaders of as
many movements, from different parts of
the country, to stauip the Buckeye state
in support of the People's ticket that is to
be placed in nomination a few weeks
hence. The Iowa delegates are going
Lome with the intention of nominating a
ticket and organizing the People's party
in every village and hamlet, and they ex
press themselves as satisfied that they
can carry at least a portion of the state
ticket. These are tbe only states in which
tbe adherents of the movement will test
their strength next fail. In tbe others it
will be all work with no shut-down until
The Other States to Wait.
There is a general consensus of opinion
teat it would not be juJicious for the dif
ferent state organizations to show their
hands too soon, but that it will be neces
sary to sow unceasingly in order that a
better crop may await the reaper a year
hence. So far as the three states already
named are concerned, however, it is
thought that between the granger ele
ment cf the country and the labor organ
izations cf tbe cities the test of strength
will be suftichrntly satisfactory in results
to alarm ihe old parties and give re
newed eucouragennent to tbe womers at
Views of Simpson and Powderly.
"Jerrys Simpson refuses to believe that
a new party has been formed. He says
action has simply been deferred to Feb
ruary, l.sy-i "The masses of the Knights
of Labor will indorse the new platform,'
said General Master Workman Powderly
a little while later. "I am on!y afraid of
the plank authorizing an equalization of
the scdJier' pay. and whici was put in
with the consent of of the ex-Confederate
representatives. Oa the whole our peo
ple will be well satisfied.'' In the same
vein talked Gen. Weaver, Senator Peffer,
Ralph Beaumont and other leaders. M.

NATIONAL COMMITTEE ORGANIZED.
Taabeneck Elected President and Srhill
ing Secretary Campaign Plaus.
It toon the national executive commit
tee five hours to discover ways aud means
cf inaugurating the national campaign.
At the outset Representative H. E Ta
beneck, of Illinois, was made chairman;
George Schilling, of Wisconsin, secretary,
and M. C. Rankin, of Indiana, treasurer.
It was agreed that all funds raised
by popular subscription should be re
ceived by Taubeneck, and by him
transmitted to the treasurer. As
an executive committee to act in conjunc
tion with the ciacers, Ignatius Donnelly;
George F. Washburn, president of the
Northeastern Industrial alliance, of Bos
ton; J. IL Davis, Texas and George Gar
ther, of Alabama, were chosen and en
dowed with full power to raise and dis
burse the moneys received, and manage
tbe campaign as it considered best.
The Plan of Campaign,
Then the question of state elections
was broached and it was tbe unanimous
opinion that the big fights of tbe year
should be nude in Kentucky and Ohio.
Tbe former election will take place in
Augnst, so that tbe forces in that state
can be thrown into Ohio by the first week
in September. To carry Ohio and
Kentucky, it was agreed, would be to
break tbe north and the south, and hence
especial eff-rts should lie concentrated
upon those states. Three thousand dol
lars were pledged as tbe nucleus of a
campaign fund which, it is hoped, will
reach toO.OOO to fTS.OO'J by next spring.and
tbe members of the national committee
for the various states were instructed to
meet and organize within thirty days.
Numerous dispatches of congratulation
upon the outcome of tbe convention were
presented, m any coming from the Knights
of Labor. This element is particularly
gratified with the fact that the eight
uour question, wnica was ignored
in the St. Louis and Ocala
platforms, received recognition upon this
occasion After the committee hud aJ-jo-irued
the Illinois committee appointed
chairmen and secretaries to proceed to
the work of organization in nearly two
thirds of the congressional districts.
