NEW POSTAL LAW.
Washington, Feb. 18.?The Senate
passed to day without a word of explana?
tion, the bill which, if it. become- a law,
will extend the postal card service. Its
title is "A bill to extend the Uses of the
mail service." It was introduced in the
early part of last session by Mr. Yilas and
was referred to the [postolllce committee,
from which it was reported back with
amendments. A week ngo an attempt
was made to have it. passed by unani?
mous consent, but objection was made by
Mr. Allen, who said from the reading of
the bill it appeared to propose the con?
ferring of a monopoly. Mr. \ il ls admit?
ted that it conferred a monopoly, but said
that as the company concerned owned
the patent for the invention then- must
necessarily be a u otiotmly. Mr- Allen
promised to look into the matter: and
when Mr. Yilasasked unanimous conseut
to-day for the passage of the bill, and
said that Mr. Allen was satisfied with it
no objection was made and the bill was
passed without its beim; even read except
i by the title.
Its purpose is to allow the circulation
by mail of postal cards ami enveh lies,
with coupons attached patented and
owned^by a West Virginia corporation,at
regular postal can's and letter rates,
"paid on oresentarion of the coupons
from the said cards and envelopes when
detached at. the Office of delivery."
The Postmaster Genera) Is to test the
principal operation of tin- plan in one or
two more important cities, and is tu sus?
pend its operation if the test proves un?
favorable. There ate nine sections to the
bill: but thev do not convey a very clear
idea of the plan. The Senate had spent
only t wenty minutes in legislative session
when, on mot ion of Senat or Sherman, t he
galleries were cleared, the doors closed
and the considerat ion of executive Intsi
ness entered upon. At 0:45 the Senate
adjourned until to morrow.

An Electric Lamp Combination Has Been
St. Louis. Feb. is.?The Republic to- !
day says: One of the most, powerful
combinations ever formed in the United
States has .just, been entered into by prob?
ably a do/.en of the largest manufacturers
of jncantlcscent lamps.
The combination seeks to regulato the
price of incandescent lamps all over the
country. It had its origin in this city,
ami is already eugnged in an effort to
crush out conipetitii.n through threats
for suits for damages for alleged in?
fringements upon certain patents.
There has been no exchange of stock or
consolidation of the physical effects of the
companies, but. instead the combination
has been effected through the pooling of
patents controlled by the companies in
order that they may be able to array
themselves against all competitors who
refuse, to come in and raise prices on
lamps. In this way the promoters of tie
scheme hope to crush out all the small
concern-, that have waged unceasing war
fare against wealthy competitors
.1. II. Rhoteuhatnel, president of the
Columbian Incandescent Lamp (!ompnny,
of this city, is said to hnuc been the orig?
inator of the plan. Resides the Colum?

"It is a irreal comfort ami a great

In speaking of mother's love, Mrs.
Booth compared it to Divine love, the

experiences in the different prisons she
said that it made no ditFercuce bow low a
criminal had fallen or what crime he had
committed, there were times during his
incarceration when he still showed some
traces of bis mother's training. One of
t he greatest errors ever committed by any
legislature, and one that is a very black
spot on the name of New York State,
was to deprive the convicts of Slug Sing
of work. Referring to the advancement
of women, she said, that should a woman
engage in the different meetings being
held at the present time it was no excuse
whatever for her to neglect her children.
A .woman who neglects her babe for

At the conclusion of Mrs. Booth's ad?

"Few seem conscious that there is such
a thing as physical morality. Men's ha?
