The polite and wealthy city of Balti
more is taking the load as tbe promulga
tor of the principles of dress reform. A
short time ago, tbe press noted the act of
a squadron of athletic young ladies there
in discarding corsets and sundry other
articles of fashionable feminine costume:
and now we are'apprised of the calling of
conference of the students of the Wom
an's college for tbe purpose of debating
tbe question of adopting; the university
hat and gown as a daily dress the four
cornered hat and the flowing black gown.
It is probable that reporters will be ex
cluded frrru this interesting conference,
bat we shall surely find out its decision.
We do not need to give the youDg ladies
any advice on tbe subject They will act
with propriety, tnd the New York Sun
adds: ,-While'we thus have reports of pro
gress in the conservative state of Mary
land, what is the news from the all-reforming
state of MssstchuselU? Tie
professor of physical culture in the High
school of tbe town of Woburn was con
fronted recently with rebellion when she
ordered her pupils to discard their corsets
and adopt a reform dress. At one time
they played sham; at another they were
defiant, and at last several of them
fainted when deprived of their corsets and
garters. The doctors have been called in,
and it now lies with them to determine
whether the reform shall be carried out
at all btz trds.
"It is truly an instructive fact that the
young ladies of Maryland are ahead of
those of Massachusetts, that the athletic
students of the Biltimore "Woman's col
lege have reformed the dress which the
Wobi. ra High school stick up for."
Our Candidate For OVt-ri:o-.
Warren Co. Democrat
Elsewhere is tound an article from the
Herald correspondent of this city making
strong argument why Hon. D. P.
Pnelps should be tbe democrats norm me
for governor. Laying aside all feeling
of local pride we see no reason way War
ren county should not be honored with
this nomination. This county has been
under republican rule for so long that the
memory of man runneth not to the con
trary, and urging this recognitor at the
hands of the slate democracy is only a nt
iotf tribute to tbe worth and high charac
ter of the candidate No man bas 6tnoi
bigher in tbe councils of the party than
Chairman Phelps. No man of such
worth bas asked lor so few favors, nor
has he in any way sought this noraiai
tion. With the dignity of a true
American be has Dot asked favor.
With the ability of a Douglas he baa never
betrayed trust imposed by the party,
nor bas be ever failed to stand as a true
representative of the best elements of a
grand party. With courage equal to that
of Grover Cleveland he believes that a
public offlje is a public trust and con
scientious discharge of tls duty wbetber
public or private has been his life motive.
While admitting the worth of other can
didates we give place or precedence to
none, and believe tbat tbe candidacy of
Mr. Pbelps would place Illinois in the
column of triumphant democracy and
that bis election would be assured. Tne
democracy of Illinois could do itself no
bigher honor tban to nominate and elect
the Hon Delos P. Pnelps as govern r.

THE SILVER-LEAD ORE DUTY.H
A Tartar Imposed Solety for the React
of Colorado Lead Producers. i
i.. duty of m cents per pound of lead
cor tain ed in silver-lead ores imported
fran Mexico was imposed by the Mc
Kii ley tariff solely in the interest of a
few lead producers of Colorado. Utah
and Montana, who believed that it
wot Jd materially increase tbe price of
lead here and thus swell their dividends.
The duty was opposed by the smelters
of load in Kansas, Missouri and Illinois
on the ground that it would so injure
their business as to compel them to shnt
down their smelters or remove them to
In reviewing the history of the lead
industry in 1891, Mr. R. P. Rothwell
says: "For a short time, indeed, toward j
the e nd of 1890, the price of lead was
advanced by the McKinley bill, and the
smelting charges on dry silver ores were
also .idvanced quite heavily, owing to a
temjorary scarcity of lend fluxing ores,
bnt a more liberal interpretation of the -bill
jy the treasury department again
allowed the Mexican ore to enter. The
price of lead thenceforward declined,
thonjh the smelting charges did not,
and as a final outcome it must be ap
parent to every one that the MeKinley
bill his been an injury rather than a
benefit to the lead, and especially to tbe
silver, mines of the west."
Thit shows that the lead miners, who
had the duty imposed, have got no bene
fit fro ai it.
Of the effect of the duty on our silver
and lead smelting industry, Mr. Roth
well says: "Previous to IS'JO only a few
unimportant smelting works existed in
Mexico, the product of which was very
small, but when the American market
was cl ised to the Mexican miners, who
could not afford to pay the heavy freight
charges to Europe on the low grade ores,
nothing was left for them to do but to
establish a smelting industry of their
own. The opportunity was promptly
seized, not only by them, bnt also by
some 01' the larger American smelters
who found themselves deprived of a por
tion of their supplies. They. too. went
over to Mexico and started np smelting
works, which are now partly in opera
tion and will be entirely so early this
Now 1 hat the McKinley bill has built
np the smelting industry of Mexico tbe
Mexicai. government has imposed a pro
hibition export duty on high grade silver
and ores, as the following dispatch from
El Paso. Tex., shows:
"For the last two days no silver ore
has boon imported from Mexico into this
country, though seventy carloads of ore
stand in the yards of the Mexican Cen
tral railway, in Juarez (Paso del Norte;).
The caue of the blockade is a new order
just sent out from the treasury depart
ment of Mexico placing a heavy duty
on all hii;h grade ores exported into this
country. It is for the protection of
smelting companies forced to establish
plants in Mexico on account of the em
bargo placed on Mexican ore containing
lead by t'ae rulers of the United States
"Heretofore the only tax paid by tbe
Mexican government on ore shipped to
this com. try was regular state tax. bnt.
according to the new order, ore running
more thin ninety ounces to the ton
must pay a duty of $MG on every
$100 of ore in excess of the ninety
ounces. The ore must be assayed at a
Mexican taint and the dnty paid before
it can pass to this side, and in addition
the shipper must pay a stamp tax on
Of all tl e injurious results of the Mc
Kinley bi.l this is probably the most
How "lleclproclty" Discriminates.
The total exports of the United States
to Great Britain and Ireland during tbe
last fiscal year amounted in value to
f441,5!HJ,807. This is $10,000,000 less
than the viJue of the exports to Great
Britain and Ireland in 1881. Yet this
country's exports last year to the United
Kingdom amounted in value to more
than its exjiorts to all the world besides.
While throwing every tariff obstacle
in the way of this great trade, the bril
liant policy of the administration is to
bully or g commercial favors from
countries v. hich, in the nature of things,
can have little or no trade with the
United States. It is considered a great
stroke to ol struct commerce with Great
Britain and Ireland, whose people draw
upward of 0 per cent, of the exports
of the United States, and to negotiate a
treaty of reciprocity with Venezuela,
whose im)0--ts from this country amount
to one-half of 1 per cent, of its total
The McKinley organs made a great
cackle over a reciprocity treaty with

this country the McKinley traiff wages

The following table of the prices of

In commen ing upon this in a letter
which he wri es to The Wool Reporter
a wool grower of San Antonio. Tex.,
says. "As the passage and beooining a
law of the M ;Kinley bill has had tbe
effect of causing our domestic wools to
decline in va'ne from two to three cents
per pound, it '.vonld seem but natural
that to repeal this law would caow
prices of wool to advance."
Dream os Her Life Hal Vanished
with Her Returning KyesifrhU
A young physician, who had left his na
tive town iu boyhood, returned to it toprac
tice his profession. He found the people so
changed that he felt himself almost among
strangers. One day, while walking about
the streets he saw what looked like a fa
miliar face and form in a nejrro lounging
at Btreet corner. It was Tony, the boy
. who had been bis playmate in childhood.
"Is that you. Tony" he called "Howdy,

A subdued light filled the room. The
woman unclosed her eyes and looked up,
her face quivering with emotion, while her
hands clutched nervously at her dress.
A look of great disappointment swept
over her face. The doctor noted it, "Is it
possible that the operation has failed?" he
No. Before her she -saw standing a tall,
bearded man, not a line of whose f;ice was

Iiision of Itoot.v " a liuccaiiccr.
The customs and regulations most com
monly observed on tioard a buccaneer are
worth noting. Every pirate captain, doubt
less, hail his own sri of rules, but there
were certain traditional articles that seem
to have !ecn generally adopted. The cap
tain h;ul the stale cabin, a double vote ia
elections, a double share of booty. Un
some vessels it was the captain who de
cided what direction to sail in, but this
and other tr tters of moment were oftentr
settled by a vote of the company, the cap
tain's vote count ing for two. The officers
had a share and a half, or a share and a
quarter, of all plunder, and the sailors one
share each. Booty was divided with scru
pulous care, and margining was the penal
ty of attempting to defraud the general
company if only to the amount of a gold
piece or a dollar. Kvery man hail a full
vote in every affair of importance.
Arms were always to lie clean and fit for
service, and desertion of the ship or quar
ters iu battle was punished with death.
KlfCtricity ill Ships.
In view of tlie present rapid development
of speed in ocean steamers, it is interesting
to note the lines on which still greater im
provement i o,iked for. Oberlin Smith
has propiu!i.'.rd the idea that the ships of
the future will probably lie driven by elec
tricity by means of a simple rotating ar
mature fixed on t he shaft of the screw it
self. The source of the electric current for
driving the motors of the prospective three
or four day Atlantic liners, .Mr. Smith con
siders, would probably lie storage batteries
placed in the extreme liottom and along
the whole length of the hold, where they
will serve us excellent ballast, or else the
current will lie generated by some direct
process from coal or other fuel, either
burned or otherwise chemically disorgan
ized during tbe passage. Philadelphia
Peacock for Uinner.
What roast swan is to roast goose, such
is roast peacock to roast turkey. Many
owners of country bouses who keep pea
cocks ami let them run wild aud nest in
their woods and shrubberies take little
trouble either to fatten or cook the pea
chicks. If they did. they would perhaps
take more pains to n.ar these birds for the
table. The meat is very white and of ex
ceedingly line and close grain and iiss the
true game flavor, with none of the svringi
liess of the common t.ii '..cy. The American
wild turkey is. however, an even liner bird
