HARTFORD, JUly!, lbBS. ERAirrns S. Day. Chairman R. Jay Walsh, Secretary. MR. BLainB. Mr. James G. Blaine is expected to arrive in this city this afternoon and to make short speech. He will be enthusiastically received, and what he has to say concerning the political sitnation will be heard with in tense interest. He has returned to this coon- try with Vigorous health, and he will do powerful and effective work for the party whioh he has so long and faithfully served. His remarks in New York show that what he has seen In Europe has made him more con vinced than ever that free trade is not a good thing for the wage earners of this country, His message to them has already echoed through the land and has made a deep and abiding impression. Mr. Blaine is a great politioal leader, and he is also a sincere friend to American workingmen and their interests. They will do well to heed his counsel. , REGULATING TBI TELEGRAPH. The aotion of the Senate in passing, with out discussion, objection or division, the bill regulating the business of telegragh compa nies, is significant. The Inter-State Com merce law has been pretty thoroughly forced, and its' effect has, on the whole, been beneficial. It is now proposed to regulate the telegraph business af the country in much the same way that the railroad business has been regulated. The bill brings telegraph oompanles doing an inter-State business under the jurisdic tion of the Inter-State Commerce commission. It declares that all charges made for tele graph service in the reoeiving, transmission and delivery of messages, shall be reasonable and just, and any unresonable charge for any suoh service is prohibited and declared to be unlawful. It declares it to be unlawful for any telegraph company to give any unreason able prefeSbnoe or advantage to any particu lar person, company, firm, corporation, or lo cality, or class of business to any unresona ble discrimination or disadvantage, in any respect whatsoever, or to charge any more for a shorter than for a longer distance over the same line. Every telegraph company must afford equal facilities for the reoeiving, forwarding, transmitting, and delivering of messages to and from their several lines and those connecting therewith, and must not discriminate in its rates and charges between suoh connecting lines. It makes it unlawful for any telegraph company or companies to divide between them the aggregate or net proceeds of the earnings of suoh companies upon their respective lines or any portions thereof. Further, the bill makes it unlawful for any telegraph company directly or indirectly, by any special rate, rebate, drawback, or other device or contrivance, to charge, de mand, collect, or receive from any person or persons, corporation or corporations. greater or leas' compensation for any service rendered or to be rendered in the transmis sion of messages than it charges, demands, oolleota or receives from any other person or persona, corporation or corporations, for do ing for him or them a like and contempor aneous service; but nothing in the aot ia to be construed as prohibiting any telegraph company from receiving, transmitting, and delivering messages for the United States or for any State or municipal corporation, or for the press, intended for publication as news, at lower rates than are at the aame time oharged for social, business, and other messages, but no such company shall dis criminate between two publishers of news papers by allowing terms to one or more newspapers for a like and contemporaneous servioe, whioh are not allowed to other news papers in any city, town, or place where there is, or may be, a telegraph office from which suoh messages may be dropped. Every telegraph company is to publish its rates to such extent, and in suoh manner, as shall be prescribed from time to time by the Inter-State Commerce commission. Suoh a law as this will meet with general approval, and it will be interesting to see the Inter-State Commerce commission regulating the Western Union telegraph company. EDITORIAL NOTES. The Chicago News, an ardent administra tion naner. savs of General . Harrison: A kindly man, with a clear record, experience in publio affairs and determination to do right, is a good man for President.' That de scription fits Mr. Harrison very well. If the Republican ticket does not win' next fall it will not be his - fault. He has saddled no quarrels on his party. He has healed its wound, whioh gaped in 1884., The statistics of suicides in France show for the past twelve months 7,572, one-fifth of these being in and . around Paris. Poverty has only caused 483, andTtbis figure includes a morbid fear of impending misery without actual privation; 1,075 oases may be traced to mental aberration, and -1,228 to physical suffering. Among the moral causes domestic troubles Btand first and alcoholism next. There are 200 cases of disappointed love, 27 from jealousy, dislike, of military servioe giving 25. ..- It has long been understood that there are too many doctors in this country, bnt in England the medical profession appears to be fctlU more crowded than here. In Engfand the proper ratio of dootor to population is said to be one in 1,200, but by this rule there are 1,943 too many doctors in London, and while 600 die every year, 1,800 new ones are turned out. Competition is so great that in some parts of the city doctors will see a pa tient, prescribe and supply medicine for six penoe a visit. - . . A French journal, published for the pur- i pose of giving curious information, has bean Investigating the story that during the Beiga of Terror Mile, de Sombreuil was made to drink a glass of human blood as the prioe of her life, and asserts that this honored legend is untrue. All the foundation there could .be for It, the paper says, is that she probably was asked to drink a glass of wine to the health of the republic, and the hand of the man who gave it to her might have been dripping with blood. . Boston is famous for Its notions. A Bos ton firm is at present engaged in the con struction of a couple of oof&ns, which, when finished, are to cost $5,000 apiece. . They are made of mahogany, seven inches thick, carved in bold relief with the most elaborate designs, all variously emblematic of death. On the top of each coffin is carved a ooat-of-arms, and every available inch of the interior is beautified by the cutting tools. Inside the caskets' are swung two silken hammocks. A $125,000 mausoleum ia a local cemetery will serve as a reosptaele for the costly boxes. The persons for whom they are In tended are not yet dead. Dr. Edgar E. Dean, of Brockton, Massa chusetts, a prominent Democrat, is among the latest repudiators of free trade. Last summer Dr. Dean traveled in England in company wiiu oenator r. . r , i , r, ' .TT T T 1 l. I shoe manufacturer, and he has visited other parts of Europe and Canada, and he says he saw enough of the effects of free trade to convince him that lowering the tariff means lowering wages, while "higher wages mean better food, better clothes and living in a house instead of a hovel." In a co operative shoe factory at Leicester, England, Mr. Douglas inquired the wages earned by the women In the stitching room, and was told that they were 8 to 13 shillings a week, or an average of $2.40. Mr. Douglas ex claimed; "Why, I, have no atitoher who earns less than $10 a week and some earn as high as $20." The Petersburg (Virginia) Index-Appeal is a Democratic paper, but it is not oblivious to the real situation of affairs. For instance, it rays: There is no ground to suppose that Mr. Cleveland is stronger in New York now than he. was in 1884. For various reasons, among which may be enumerated his tariff message and the mugwumpian assaults on Governor Hill, there is ground for apprehen sion that he is not as strong as he was four Years aso. Last January the writer of this had an excellent opportunity of judging per sonally the effect of Mr. Cleveland's message on the farmers of New York Democratic and Bspnblioan and the resnlt was very far from encouraging. On the other hand there is reason to believe that Mr. Harrison is stronger in New York to-day than Mr. Blaine was in 1884. And yet we all remember how near Mr. Blaine came to carrying the electoral vote of that State. Mr. Labouchere makes pnblio for the first time, he savs. a letter of the Duke of Wel lington about the battle ef Waterloo, in ref erence to certain stories about the "world's earthquake." "I can refer vou," says the iron warrior, "only to my dispatches pub lished ia .'The London Gazette.' General Alva's report is the nearest to the truth of the other official reports published; but even that report contains some statements not ex actly correct. The others that I have seen cannot be relied upon. To some of them may be attributed the source of the false hoods since circulated through the medium of unofficial publications with which the press has abounded. Of this a remarkable instance is to be found in the report of meeting between Marshal Blucher and me at La Belle Alliance: and some have gone to fars to have seen the chair on which I sat down at that farmhouse. It happens that tha meetins took place after 10 o'clock in the village of Gemappe and anybody who attempts to describe with troth the opera tions of the different armies will see that it could not be otherwise. The othsr point is not so material, bnt in truth, I was not off mv horse until I returned to Waterloo, be tween 11 and 12 at night." GREEN, A Connecticut firm is making ink out of green apples.

WUat dame a Philadelphia Found In the Cat.hOUs. I From the Kingston Freeman. A Philadelphian named Stickler ' spends several weeks each year in the Catskill' Mountains. He had an exciting adventure on Monday. Stiokler left his retreat, which nestles among tall pines in a picturesque valley, early in the morning. He took with him a double barreled gun, and a small Scotch terrier dog ' followed at his heels. Following mountain paths he soon came in sight of the Hotel Kaaterskill, where he stopped a short time and chatted with friends, who bantered him about shooting a bear. Stiokler took the jests good natured- Iy, and remarked that he would return with a bear. Bidding his friends good by he sallied forth on what he anticipated wonld prove an enjoyable day'a sport. Stiokler soon came to tne Drow or tne. mil wmcn overlooks a deep valley south of the hotel. The hnnter descended the mountain side into the valley, which he crossed, and then he tramped on for a mile or two. Stickler kept a sharp lookout for gsme. ma itttie dog kept several yards ahead of him. Sud denly he heard it bark and it ran baok to him. It aoted as If it were badly fright ened. Advancing cautiously stiokler saw something that filled him with pleasure and his pulse quiokened with excitement. Be tween four tall trees, which formed a space of abont twenty feet, were two cub bears at Dlav. Their antics amused him, and it was some time before he awakened his senses that what he had started out for was right before him, Baising his gun he took aim at the largest of the cubs and fired. The little animal was badly wounded, and it set up a orying that could be heard a long distance. Tne plain live sounds were heard by the old mother bear, whioh had been feeding on berries. It went tearing through the bushes to its vounz. noted the wounds or. its enspnng, and looked around for the hunter. The old bear caught Bight of Stiokler, and, with growls that sent cold shivers running up and down his spinal column, it made for him. Between the place where Stickler was standing and the spot where the cubs were there was stretched a huge trunk of a tree, which had been denuded of its branches. The log rested in such a position that a small animal could orawl under. This-proved a fortunate circumstance for Stickler, for his life was saved by it. Bruin was rspidly approaching, and the hunter raised tne gun to his shoulder and took careful aim, as it was the only charge he had, in the ex citement that followed the shooting of the cub he having fore.tteu to reload the other barrel. The charge hit the bear near the Bhonlder and infliotcd a terrible bnt not fatal wound. This only served to enrage the shaggy brute still more and it reached the log and had Its forepaws on top of it when the little terrier, whioh had stood trembling with fear behind its mastsr, darted unaer the log and caught the beast by one of its hind legs. The bear turned its attention to the nog, which slipped back under the log. The new turn of affairs enoouraged Stickler, who did not let the chance slip by. Grasping his weapon by the barrel he advanoed and struck tne Drute on tne neaa. Bruin did not seem to mind the blow and it again mounted tha log and the little dog azain repeated its performance. Stick ler began to reload one barrel of his gun, but so nervous and excited was ne tnai ne spiled half his powder on the ground. He managed, nowever, to gel a cnarge in just aa the bear was on top ol the log for the third time, lie Bred, and the terrier at the same instant went for the bear's hind quarters. This time Brain did not turn back, and Stickler, realizing it was life or death with im, again rushed forward to club the animal. He had the weapon elevated, when the bear raised its forepaws and strnck him a terrible blow in the breast. aad he fell unconseions to the ground. When he opened his eyes he saw the bear lying oy ms side. It was dead. It had struck the hunter in its last death atruggle. On examination Stickler round that tne last shot had entered the bear's mouth, whioh, he remmembered, as it came aoross the log, was wide open. The brute's tongue was cut off at the roots and was filled with shot. The Amster Dressmaker. From Good Housekeeping. The great difficulty and expense, of secur ing a skillful dressmaker has forced many ladies to do their own work. The first es sential is the fitting of the gown. Many ladies have this one item done by a first class dressmaker, who will charge half as. much for his one item as an unskilled dressmaker would charge for making the whole gown, but it is an expenditure wisely made if the lady cannot fit herself success fully. After the waist is carefully fitted care snould bo taken that the trimming is not Dut on in such a way as to interfere with the contour or tne ngure. uniy a lew oi tne new bodices show any buttons this season. X vest and revere cover the buttons, xt is well to have this vest and revers ap plied after the dress is fitted, buttoning tne waist straignt aown tne irons as usual, and buttoning the vest over it under one of the revers. Collars remain exceedingly hieh. They should be a bias band, three inches or more wide before they are fin ished, and should be held toward the seam stress while they are put on, stretching them a trine so that they will fie snucly around the throat. The shoulde Beams, the side form seams and all other seams on the inside of bodices should be opened and bound on the edge with bias silk or bind ing, which comes lor this purpose. The edges of the basque and the collar of dresses of wool should be faced and lined with silk or farmer's satin. An interlining of crinoline about two inohes wide should be nsed around the edge of all bodices of wool or silk. The convenient casings whioh come by the yard in all colors shonld cer tainly supersede tne narrow bias tolas of lining with whioh it has been customary to cover whalebones, xt is not wise, nowever, to nse the covered steels which have been introduced to take the place of whalebones, as these are liable to slip or wear out of place and break, and -in a thin dress are UKeiy to snow tueir outline.. Increasing Valne or Walnut. From the St. Louis Globe-Qemocrat. For many years walnut was a wod that held absolute predominance over : all other woods for furniture. But while other woods have become very, popular and walnut is ap parently on the decline, yet really walnut will always be a fashionable wood. The price will gradually Increase, for the large demand is fast consuming the supply. In many States fifteen yearsjAgo the farms were inolosed with walnut rail fences, as the wood was not so valuable in those days. But In these States where walnut grows the lumber that would have formerly been oast aside with the "culls" is to-day sold for high price. Even the small limbs of walnut trees . . . . .. i . are now sawea up iota uawnu xur- ruuKS and posts of parlor chairs. The old Snarled limbs and knots of the walnut trees are sought after with avidity by buyers through the country distriots, who sell them to firms that manufacture them into ornaments for antique shelves, fancy hassocks and other tissual furniture.
