The sub-committees which have

ules of the new tariff bili have fin?
ished their work and ihe bill is now
beittg l.i.i -i.lereal by tho full demo-;

tee on Ways and Means. While I
some minor changes may be made
iu the bill before it is made public
it is practically finished and the re?
publican members of the committee
will probably be furnished with
printed copies of it within ten dav-,
gfj that it will be ready to report to
the House during the first week of
the session. The bill has be; n ap?

Divorce laws have been tinkered j

cert. Tbe new democratic tariff
does not suit them. This is not
strange, although they pretend to
think it so. The Chicago platform
d eel ar eel against the doctrine of
protection and in favor of a tariff
for ivva-uiie only, and the Wilson
tariff lill is in letter and spirit
strictly in accordance therewith.
It give.-the largest free list the
county ha's ever had and in accor?
dance with the expressed wishes of
hundreds of manufactures in that
free list is encl oded much of the
raw material used by American
manufacturers. Among them the
following: iron ore. coal, pig tin.
hemp, ihix, jute, silver, lead ore,
copper, wool salt, crude borax,
binding twine, cotton ties, and lum?
ber not advanced in preparation
above sawing. It cuts about every
protective item in the McKinley
law down to a strictly revenue ba?
The new bill is in the main satis?
factory _ to democrats, although
thorn is some things on the free
lisi that some democratic members
of the house would have preferred
seeing a small duty retained upon.
Prominent among these are iron
ore, lead ore and coal, but the dem?
ocrats on the committee after care?
fully studying the matter from
every point or view concluded that
it would be undemocratic to make
fish o_ one and flesh of the ot I: cr
and they were accordingly put on
ibe nee list, liiose who are best
informed believe that the judge?
ment of the majority of the Ways
and Means committee will be en?
dorsed by tho majority of the
Ileane and that the bill will be
passed by that body substantially
as it is today. The action of the
Senate is net so certain. The op?
position will be consentrated upon
the Renate, because of the slim
democratic majority in that body.
There are several reasons why a
section providiug for a personal in?
come tax was not attached to the
bill. In the first place there are
quite a number of democrats who
arc (inposed to a personal income
tax. But probably the strongest
reasons of all was the desire to
know just how much revenu? it
vs ill be necessary to raise by on in?
come tax before deciding the rate
and method of that tax, a knowl?
edge that could not be obtained an?
ti] ibe new tariff bill becomes a
law. Meanwhile the tax imposed
by the bill upon the net earnings
of corporations may prove a satis?
factory substitute for a more gen?
eral income tax.
President Cleveland will not, I
am informed on good authority, go
into the Hawaiian matter in his an?
nual letter further than to say that
it will be fully treated in a special
message later. He prefers to wait
until the episode is closed before
dealing with it in a message to
rou gr ess.
Secretary Lamont's annual re?

Why shouldn't the U. S. govern?
ment print its own postage stamps?
Ohief Johnson of the Bureau of
.Engraving and Printing isn't the
Srst man who has asked that ques?
tion, but he has asked in a very
iractical manner, by submitting
igures to the Post Master General
ihowing how much cheaper the
Bureau of Engraving and Printing
oula do the work than any of the
>rivate parties who have submit?
ed bids for printing the stamps
luring 1804. An unofficial esti?
mate is that the government could
ave at least $2">,000 a year by
>rinting its own postage stamps.
rilera is a doubt it seems as to
vhcther the Post Master General
an under the present laws give
he contract to the Bureau of En?
graving and Printing, and the mat?
er is now being considered and will
n a few days be decided.
Secretary Herbert thinks, not?
withstanding the present depressed
ondition of government finances,
hat we should continue making
ddition to our navy, and his
nnual report will recommend the
onstruction during the next fiscal
ear of one battle ship* and four
orpedo cruisers, and there is reason
o believe that the recommendation
'ill be endorsed by the President's
lessage. Representative Cum
lings, chairman of the House
:mimitteeon Naval Affairs, says
jere will be no trouble in getting
bill favorably reported from that
)mmittee to carry out the Secreta
r'a recommendations, and that he
opes the bill will get through all ('
right, but it is plain to see that he
has some doubts about it. There
are a number of democrats in the
House who will oppose any further
expenditures for new vessels at this
time, some because they think the
navy already large enough, and
others became they think the mon?
ey cannot be spared.
It is with much regret that we
chronicle the death of Mrs. John
M. Colaw which, occurred at her
home in Monterey on Tuesday
evening last about 5 o'clock. She
had been sick for two weeks en?
more, but bore her great suffering
with marked submission and
christian fortitude. During her
comparatively short residence in
town she had won the friendship
and respect of all, and her untime?
ly and unexpected death is greatly
lamented. She being only about
28 years of age, and lip to the time
of her last illness, retaining much
of the grace, beauty and vigor of
her girlhood, she gave promise of a
a long and useful life.
She leaves two little children ?
too small to realize their loss, but
old enough, we trust, to retain the
impress of a noble, christian moth?
er's character. The greatest good
that we can wish for the<e little
ones is that Mamma's hopes and
prayers may be fully realized.
The young,heart-broken husband
has the sincere sympathy of all in
this the saddest and darkest hour of
his life, but, realizing hdw unsatis?
fying is human sympathy, we
hope that he may seek that conso?
lation which God can give, and
which may be found in the blessed
assurance of a re-union beyond thc
portals of death.

Small pox has not for many years
been so prevalent in Pennsylvania
as it is ai the present time. In
Reading the disease haas had a firm
foothold for over a year, and the
State Board of Health has officially
declared the disease epidemic there.
In other portions of Berks county
there w<as also cases.
There are many others in all
parts of the State. This general
outbreak of the disease is due, it is,
said, to the fact that vaccination j
has been neglected. A plan is
talked of and St.ite Superintendent
Schaeffer may be interested iu the
matter to have all the school chil?
dren in Pennsylvania vaccinated.
It is estimated that 300,000 school
children are in danger of sm.allpox,
not having been vaccinated.
Fortunes For Coins, Stamps
Enormous prices are paid for va?
rieties of U. S. and foreign coins
dated before 1883. There are also
good ?sized premiums on Confed?
erate and fractional currency, also
old stamps. There are dealers who
buy the above. One of the most
reliaVe concerns is the National
Coin Ca., 832D Exchange Build?

stamp you can get a 16-page pam?

Bkistol, Va., Nov. 14?The peo?
ple of Southwest Virginia are very

The following account of quite
an unusual and sad occurrence is
taken from the Pendleton County
News of last week.
On Saturday last 11th about dark
Miles Bible, son of James Bible of
the Buffalo Hills died very sudden,
aged about 17 or 18 years, lt seem
that young Bible had some disease
like that of itch, and had procm-ed
a bottle of ointment of Drs. Moo
mau & Johnson, and af ter apply ing,
died inside of five minutes.
On Sunday, Esquire Pennybaker.
Drs. Moomau & .Johnson and I. C.
Johnson, went to Mr. James Billie's
home to hold an examination. The
family objected to the doctors mak?
ing an autopsy, and Esquire Pen?
nybaker deemed it unnecessary to
hold an inquest over the body as
they believed he died from heart
trouble. The doctors claim that
the ointment Was harmless and
could not have caused death, as
other members of the family used
the same medicine. Deadly poison,
in our opinion, would not have kill?
ed a mau so soon, and of course we
have the right to believe that he
died from heart trouble.
The ointment has been sent of!
to be analyzed, and in justice to
our friend Dr. S. B. Johnson, who
so carefully prepared the ointment
we will gladly publish the result.
The family has the sympathy of
the News in the loss A their son.
For a sore throat there is nothing
better than a flannel bandagi

severe cases. 50 cent bottles for
