Qcisct Htrald: The movement in
favor of senatorial elections by populsr
vote is (raining increased popular moreen .
turn. It is favored by men of all partus.
Senator Palmer stands as a represtnta
tive of the principle. He made his fight
before the people and won a populnr ma
jority and a prestige which enabled tim
to hold the vore of his party till victory
was at last attained. TLe opportunity

O.vfc. of the leading Massachusetts
woolen manufacturers ia the wool con
sumers' association has this to say about
Mr. Springer's free wool biil:
Free wool, with the present advalorem
rates upon goods, would be a great gain
to woolen manufacturers; and, as on
the woolen schedule, free wool brings a
very large reduction in the duties on
goods, with largely reduced coat on many
woolen goods, the bill for free wool
would benefit everybody. Free raw ma
terial for woolen manufacturers also
means a greater use of wool for so-called
woolen goods: mills running upon "all
wool goids," so called, are now in many
instances using no wool at all, but some
waste or shoddy, and mostly cotton.
We must beg leave to congratulate
Senator Qua; in bis first authentic "vin
dication" since the house of representa
tives in the Fifty-first congress rebuked
Congressman Kennedy for telliDg un
pleasant truths. Id the large and tt riv
ing city of Beaver, Pa., which tbesenau.r
honors with nominal residence, a jury hfs
found the editor of a large and prosper
ous journal called the Star guilty of libt 1
for having published matter reflecting on
tfee senator's official ar d pereooal integ
rity. The jury coosloted of 11 Quay
partisans and one other, who, if not a
Quay partisan, was nothing on e-rib,
btill, a vindication is a vindication,, and
Mr. Quay is not so rich ia this sort of
honors that he can afford to have this oi e
The libelous matter published in t' e
8tar related to the Keystone bank fuilute
and Quay's alleged connection therewith.
The connection could not be or at iea t
was not proved. The alleged libel hs d
no bearing upon certain earlier
chapters in the senator's career which
have been fully exploited in the press and
especially in the Evening Post, the War 1.1
and Puck, of New York. In these jour
nals it b "8 been within the past 18 months
repeatedly sss rted that Mr. Quay, while
treasurer of Pennsylvania, stole $400,000
and used the money in speculation. This
statement, garnished with many others of
equally damaging character, baa more
than once appeared in the journals
named, together with invitations from
their respective editors to Mr. Quay to
test its tru'hfulness i i a suit for libel.
Senator Q'lay has hitherto ignored these
noble opportunities for vindicating his
character in a tribtn J worthy of his na

She was pleased with the word, which
was new to her, and readily excused him.
The next day she was calling on a
friend when she remarked with much
"We had an iconoclast for dinner yes

"Oh, yes," answered her friend sweet

RUSSIA VANTS IMMIGRANTS FOR
THE SOUTHERN PART.
A RV. nl Is living Built Throucli South.

Pacific Ocean, aa an Inducement for
Settle! s to Go There.
The ra;lrod which the Russian govern
ment is building through south Liberia
from tb Ural to the Pacific ocean will
open An maiense country hitherto almost
unknowi to the world for foreign culture-,
and it m ty be of interest to see what the
condition of the land is. Generally, it may
be said S.beria, by the hand of nature, has
been end ved not less thau other coun
tries. It produces almost every kind of Euro
pean frra n and fruits, even grape's, and has
an abundance of all metals, iron, irold, sil
ver, copper, lead, zinc, etc., coal, trraphite,
porphyry and precious stones, and it is, or
has been, the home of all kinds rf mam
malian a limals. The rivers ami lakes are
crowded with all kinds of fish and the
arctic sea abounds with whale aud seal.
The ara of .Siberia is alxmt 1:2,000,000
kilometers, but the northern and greater
part of it is almost waste, inhabited only
by a few thousands of t?ainj"des and Es
kimos. Snow and ice cover the earth
ri the north almost all the year round,
i) iily melt ius? in two or three months in
the sunnier, when the sun never sets.
This coin. try is then visited by large herds
of wild reindeer, coming from the south
and returninj; there as soon as winter sets
in. The polar bear and the black fox live
here constantly, and hunting these and
the seals and fi-hiiiit are the only occupa
tion of tin northern peo.ile.
The Sa-nojedes and K-kimns seem to
be related to each otiier. Their lanuaires
are not so different t hat they cannot under
stand each otiier. Their mariner of living
and cultu e, if i: can le named so, is alrnott
the same. They are all nomads, goin
north in t lesummer and south in the win
ter. Their clothing is made, of sealskin,
and lxith sexes wear t lie same style of
In the simmer they live in tents made
of skin, ai.d t heir only furniture is of skin.
They covei themselves 1th skins and sleep
on skins. The tents are heated with open
lires in the middle of the tent, and as the
pine never here iiei-omes a tree, oiijy a
shrub, the natives use the blubber of the
whale and the oil of the seal for fuel.
PEori.E OF s!i:t.i:IA.
The people are chiefly small, filthy and
indolent. They do not provide for the

number is -a many."
In winter they live in huts, made of turf
and moss and covered with snow. The
entrances to these huts are 1oi:l; and low,
and one ha-i to crawl through tiiem. Three
and four families live in one but, wherethe

A GOD LAND FOR SETTLERS.
Central S beria has a sterile laud ami
cold winters, which make it unfit for agri
culture. In this part Of the country are
found mines of coal and metals, and there
are small tettlenients where merchants
drive bargains with the natives. Taxes to
the government are paid iu skin, fur or
other naturtJ products.
Here are i nmensc forests of pine, larch,

There will bo a great numlier of stations,

Almost m Panic.
The Confederates had left a big forest
fiee burning somewhere within half a mile
Ol. is, says the historian of the Forty-third
Massachusetts regiment. It illuminated
the forest all around with a dim light and
we were near enough to hear its constant
dull, furuacelike roar.
My six companions were supposed to be
asleep iu a small but close to me the re
serve post. 1 was iu a sitting posture out
side, dozing, but conscious. In an instant
I was put upon my feet, wide awake, by
one of the most tremendous crashes I ever
heard. Some giaut of the forest bad gone
down, and in its fall had dragged down an
acre or two of trees with it.
I comprehended, the state of the case at
once, and so of course was not thrown off
.my balance; but not so my companions,
' -.11 r ...i - i , i
an oi nuuui were naturally cooi nun urave
men. I judge that they were soundly
asleep, but in a state of mental tension
from their recent experiences, especially in
blowing up some Confederate earthworks.
At any rate they were for an instant or
two scared out of tiieir wits. Only once in
I my life bad 1 seen men's hair actually rise
en their heads and t heir eyes look like sau
1 cers, and that was in circumstances of exe

The sight was ludicrous in the highest
' degree, and yet it was fearful. For a few
seconds I thought they would get away
, from me and go back to camp on the dead
run without their guns; but the tones of
my voice, as much as anything I could say
; iu such a situation, soon calmed them, and
I then the laughter was as uncontrollable as
j the terror had been.

The Wedding Keporter.
This reporter is young, goiwl looking and
dresses weii. His forte is weddings. No
marriage in the district in which his paper
circulates can be said to be complete with
out the attendance of our friend, Mr. Tur
tledove. The numler of young people he
has seen take one another for bettered for
worse niibt be remarkable for so young a
man. Upon t lie subject, of the dresses of
the bride ami bridesmaids he i.-, as reliable
an authority as most of those ladies who
make a point of pricing every wedding
with their presence, and what he does not
know on the whole subject of marriage
ctremouirs is not worth knowing.
In his day lie must have written enough
about "happy couples" to fill a good sized
volume. Notwithstanding all he has trone
through, he is still a bachelor, and perhaps
a similar experience would frighten the
tnot reckless man from venturing upon
tbe married stale. His friends suggest to
him that his large and varied experience
in weddings might lie turned into a good
source of revenue if he were to hire himself
out to would lie bridegrooms who want in
struciiou in their part of the important
proceedings. London Til lii'.s.
A Language for Iog.
It tnu-t also be borne in mind that dogs
are and always have beeu bred for special
i purposes, such as pointing, retrieving.
running, waU iung and biting, but not for
general intelligence. Mr. tialton, who
cans attention to this fact, suggest that
it would lie interesting as a psychological
experiment to mate the cleverest dogs
generation after generation, breeding aud
educating them solely for intellectual
power and disregarding every other con
sideration. In order to carry out t his plan to perfec
tion and to realize all the possibilities in
volved in such a comprehensive scheme, it
would le necessary to devise some system
of signs by which dogs would lie aide to
communicate their ideas more fully and
more clearly than they can do at present,
both to each other and to man. That the
invention of such a language is not impos
sible isevident from what has been already
achieved in the training of dogs for exhi
bition, as weil as from the extent to which
tiiey have learned to understand human
speech by mere association with map.

In Harrison's Chair.
A rather laughable scene was enacted all
day long yesterday in front of one of the
house furnishing stores ou Main street. A
rocking chair was set on the sidewalk and
a placard stuck up stating that President
Harrison sat in the chair at the time of
the Bennington celebration. An affidavit
of the sale by a Bennington furniture
dealer to the Worcester linn was pinned
up. The sign stated. "Sit down in tbe
chairthat President Harrison once sat in."

then hurried along.
It was laughable see some people elo
he as. Thry would be walking along at
a rapid pace, see the sign and land lightly
tn the cushion, :ind in Knot her moment
they were pone. Others, of a more mode-rate
temperfimetit, would make them
