STRONG FACTS/ A great many people are asking what particular troubles BROWN'S Iron Bitters is good for. It will cure Heart Disease, Paral sis, Dropsy, Kidney Disease, Con •■.•mption, Dyspepsia, Rheumatism, : .analgia, and all similar diseases. Its wonderful curative power is it iply because it purifies and en ■ :bes the blood, thus beginning at itc foundation, and by building up . iie system, drives out all disease. \ Lady Cured of Rheumatism. Baltimore, Md., May 7, 1880. My health was much shattered by Rheumatism when I commenced taking Brown’s Iron Bitters, and I scarcely had strength enough to at tend to my daily Household duties. I am now using the third bottle and I am regaining strength daily, and I cheerfully recommend it to all. 1 cannot say too much in praise of it. Mrs. Mary E. Brash ear, 173 Prestmanst. Kidney Disease Cured. • Christiansburg, Va., 1881. Suffering from kidney disease, from which I could get no relief, I tried Brown's Iron Bitters, which cured me completely. A child of mine, recovering from scarlet fever, had no appetite and did not seem to be able to eat at ail. 1 gave him Iron Bitters with the happiest results. * J. Kyle Montague. Heart Disease. Vine St., Harrisburg, Pa. Dec. 2, 1881. After trying different physicians and many remedies for palpitation of the heart without receiving any benefit, I was advised to try Brown's Iron Bitters. I have used' two bot tles and never found anything that gave me so much relief. Mrs. Jennie Hess. For the peculiar troubles to which ladies are subjeft, Brown’s Iron Bitters is invaluable. Try it. Be sure and get the Genuine. A BRAVE LACY. She Endures the Pain of n Severe Surgical Operation Without Taking Chloroform*’ (From the Courier.) Mrs. Schoonmaker, of Creek Locks, Ulster Co. N. Y , had the misfortune to entirely lose the sight of one of her eyes, through an accident, and endured painful inflammatory action therein for two long years; the other eye finally becoming sympatheti cally aifected, her general health seriou ly suffer ing; indeed she was a mere wreck, a walking skele ton. In this terrible strait she consulted Dr. David Kennedy, of Rondout, N. Y., who told her at once that the injured eye must be removed. She quietly but firmly said. “All right, Doctor, but don’t give me chloroform. Let my husband sit by my side during ihe operation, and I will neither cry out or stir.’' The work wag done, and the poor woman kept her word. Talk of soldierly courage! This showed greater pluck than it takes to face a bund ed guns. To restore her general health and give tone and strength to the system, Dr. Kennedy then gave the “Favorite Remedy,” which cleansed the blood and imparted new life to the long suffer ing won. an. She rapidly gained health and strength, and is now well. The “Favorite Remedy” is a priceless ble-sing to ' ou.en. No family should be without it. Your druggist has it. If not send to Dr. Dav d Kennedy, Rondout, New York. dec25 MW&F&wnrm. (entaurJiniment The Great Healing Kemedy. MW&F&wlm NEW NAVAL VESSELS. Estimates of the Naval Advisory Board.

[Special despatch to the Press.] Augusta, Jan. 4.—After the agreeable stir and bustle of the past few days Augusta has relapsed into her customary quiet. Most of the members of both branches of the Legislature have returned home to pass the Sabbath w th their families. On reassembling of the House and Senate on Tuesday the various committees will be announced and then the active work of the session will begin. The in auguration ceremonies were witnessed by a very large audience. Many of Gov. Robie’s townsmen and officeis of the State Grange were present. The Governor’s message is universally commended here aa a vigorous and statesman-like document and its delivery was frequently interrupted by applause. Immediately after leaving the hall of Representa tives Gov. Robie repaired to his official apartment and taking the nomination book wrote: Artemas Libbey, Augusta, Justice of the Supreme Court, to till the vacancy caused by the expiration of his own term. It was his first official ret and congratulations are pouring in both upon the Governor and upon Judge Libbey. The new council met and organized and then ad journed until Tuesday next. Most of the old coun cillors started for home on the afternoon trains. The outgoi« g council was an unusually strong and able body of men. Their protracted struggle with a common enemy drew them together and their relations we e very intimate. The State owes them a debt and will remember them with gratitude. MAINE LEGISLATURE. SENATE.

BUTLER IMAUGURATED. Sharp and Vigorous Inaugural Address. A TERRIBLE BLOW TO MASSACHU SETTS CONCEiT. Bostov, Jau. 4. In recent years no inaugura tion ba-been so popularly attended a« Governor Butter’s at the St ite House to av. Hours before the time for him to appear the halls and passages were crowded, so that motion whs difficult and the jhr-overflowed down the broad steps and even into the Common. The jo.nt convent! nfor inaug uration oucurred in the H-*use of Representatives which was packed. • ver an hour was consumed by preliminaries and the crowd which could not get in gradually dispersed At half past 12 o'clock the supreme judicial court entered, followed by General Butler dressed in an evening suit, carrying a gold headed cane and wear ing hit* usual buttonhole bouquet. He walked up the aisle and sat at the speaker'* desk, amid the applause of his friends Distinguished gues's fol lowed and soon the House was packed to the last Inch. Among those present, besides State officers, were Colonel N. A. Plimpton, manager of Butler’s cam paign in 1882, Colonel dorms H. French his mans* gerini877, Hon. Marshal P. Wilder, President Eliot of Harvard, ex-Governor Banks, Collector Worthington, John K. Tar box, Mayor Palmer of Boston, Major Haggerty, Judge Thomas Russell, Hon. A. C. Woodworth, candidate for lieutenant governor with Butler in 1876. "When the guests and crowd were all in, President | Crocker el the Senate administered the oath at.d Governor Butler signed hie name to the oath. The instant he did so his friends applauded, both in the galleries and on the fi »or, and a few seconds later the first gun of a military salute was fired on the common. Secretary * Pierce thenl made proclamation that General Butler had been installed as Governor and warning all people, t specially the State officers, to take due notice thereof. Roncwed applaused followed this declaration. immediately after Oliver Ames was inaugurated as Lieutenant Governor. Governor Butler was then presented formally to the legislature and proceeded to read his address. GOY. BUTLER’S ADDRESS. In his inangural address Governor Butler first calls attention to the financial condition of the State a- sh wn by the treacursr’s statement. He men tions the fact that the Hoosac tunnel and Troy and Greenfield roads are in such condition as to be non supporting and iutimates that this and other mat ters per1 aining to the finances of the State will be marie the subject of a special message to the legisla ture her* after. The question of suffrage is consider d at length. In his opinion a capital tax should be paid as the duty of a citizen but not as a suffrage Qualification, but the penally for m >n-p*ymeut should not be dis franchisement. Poll taxes should be assessed by ci ieS and towns for their proper benefit only and not 8 a State and county tax, and a change in the law to that effect is recommended. The desirability of establishing free suffrage to all citizens at as early a day aB possible is urged, and authority quo ted to show ’hat his is a right at id immunity guar anteed by the constitution of the Unit, d States. Some modifications ofjthe registration lawi are sug gested. I he right of suffrage in women is affirmed, a constitutional amendment is necessary to secure the full right for women to vote for all state a d na tional officers, and the question wi-ether that amendment should be made should be le t to the women themselves to determine. It is suggest* d that a law be p ssed allowing women to vote under the same regulations as men in ..-unicipal elections, which law ’■had take effect a hen it shall be accepted by the majority of the women voting at some general election. 3e recommends that municipal and State elec tions be held the same day and that said day be a legal holiday. A repeal of the restriction of naturalization to th»* supreme and superior courts only is recommend ed. Governor Butler allndes to complaints made as to delays of ju-tice. This he says is not the fault of the court8 but of the system of juri-diction un der which they act. He proposes to give his views of the * hing s and alterations of this system to the legislature in another communication. The only criticism he makes upon the mili’i&is that of iate there has been^n attempt to make the r discipline too mu< h like that of ihe reguar army, which disgusts militia men with the sendee and ac counts for the fewness of the numbers who appear for camp d ity. He promises to remedy this so far as he is concerned. He recommei ds an act providing that any person convicted of train-wrecking shall suffer oeath, and condemns the practice of stock gambling or specu lations upon the necessaries of life as an offense at common law tnough rarely prosecuted. The affairs of the various reformatory, correc tional and pauper institutions of the State are con sidered, and attention is called to the ’disproportion ate amount of t*-*-salaries to all the other costs. T he present statutes virtually place the trustees of thes institutions beyond the reach of executive in terference. The executive has no power to correct abuses, even if kD wn and flagrant. Extravagance is charged by Governor But er, and figures are given to show that the cost to the tate tor the support of the inm .tes of hese iustitutions is considerably greater than that i ucnrred in county institutions of the same character. In regard to the State prison affairs he asks whether insubordination or sul enness among con victs might not be prevented or reduced by legisla tion by providing that every pi isouer by steady and effi dent work and obeyi-g nil rule- and regulations may work off a portion of his sentence every month, according i o his deserts Now only obedience to all rules counts. He believes this would do more to prevent insubordin «tion and outbieak than guards, solitary cells or other punishrn-*nts. He also; asks “Might not a certain percentage of the prisoners’ earnings be invested in a fund »n t be given|th« pris oner when discharged, to s art him in ihe world again, tLis perven age to be enlarged when the pris on becomes self-supporting? If the legislature will approve this experiment the executive will give all needed support.” ui ihe industrial school for girls the Governor says. ‘ 1» has outlived its usefulne«-6.’' Of the school for idiotic and feeble minded youth he says “Give th m an a-ylum with good and kind treatment, but u»t a school. A well fed, well cared for idi t is a ha, py creature; an idiot awakened to h s condition s a m serab e one.” He recommends the classification of ’he insane in var.ous asylums and presents as a matter for legis lative con-ide ation the fact that the doors of in sane es ablishmeuts, private as we‘l as public, open a tng ther oo easily i. ward and with too great dif ficulty outward iu the reception and discharge of in mates A cha» ge in the system of auditing the accounts of the State is r*-commen 'ed; also, that provision be made for the appointment of a purchasing officer for a 1 State supplies as iu the interest of ecoi omy. He advises* as a measure of “civil service r-*fo m” that at least one-third of the paid officials doi g the business of he commonwealth who *re uot imbed ded in th* constitution aud cai not be reache-1 by law, shou'd be cut off bv stringent enactments of law ami the salaries of the remainder reduced on the average aj least one-half in araouut of emolu ments. travellii g and official expenses. These lat ter terms are a fruitful source of abuse. Upon the subject of taxation he says: “If all the property in the state could be reached and p- op »r tionately taxe , even if our expendi ures were not essei-ed our taxes would be ieduced one-haif, they nowbei g nearly equal to one-balf the income re ceive * upon perfectly safe investments in public stocks. One of the best methods to lessen taxation is the strictest eco omy iu making appropriations for public expenses, whether for 'tate, county, city or town. Abolish all unnecessary offices and paid employes f the State. Cut off all questionable expenditures.” Discrimination in favor of foreign insurance com pauies as against home companies in the matter of taxation is referred to as a subject for legislative inquiry. Legislation is suggested thereby no employe of any steam railroad shall be obliged to work more than trn hours in any one day, except in an emergency. Other modifications of the laws defining the liabili ty of railroad corporati ns for injury to their em ployes are recommended. i pon the subject of educaiion, after asserting that salaries are as a rule much too large, he says: ‘‘Restrict the branches taught in the primary schools by law specifically to spelling, reading writing, grammar, arithmetic geography, h siory, preferable of the United States, and require that these shall be taught upo* the same system to tbe same grade of schools eve y common school in the commonwealth. When ike scholar can show that he is well grounded in the elementary English branches, then let him be admitted to a school of higher grade where he shall bo taught bookkeepi* g, algebra, geometry, the rudiments of ilie Latin and French languages, chemistry, physics with natural philosophy in a rudimental degree, and there com mon school educaiion should stop When bv this system of echo--Is we have brought Massachusetts ' from her present position to be the first state in the Union in the reading and writing of h r citizens, t b-ere wid be somebo iy here doubtless more compe te ni to advise what is best to be done ” in conclusion Governor B- tlur s«ys: “I have pre sented tbe result of my best thought; upon the top ics occiiring to me as of interest to you aud ike dis • ussion -of which would benefit th« Slate The time has not been possible to me to give them needed care, classification and condensation. It has been my endeavor to exclude therefrom every partisan consideration. I have every inducement and no lempt&'ion to do otherwise, for I rauvh desire that my suggestsons shall have weight with all of you. From my recommendations no |>ersonal advantage can come, for i now and here declare that I have neither wish nor intent on again to ask the suff ra ges of the people of he commonwealth for the posi tion 1 hold, for which high h*nur 1 am filled with the most profound seusibility. It is both my pleas ure aud duty to give one 5 ear of he best energies of my life to the service of the commouwealtu, thereby to pay an honest penny ot my grati ude Governor Butler read his address in that sty lx whi h has become so familiar in his public speech es. Frequent touobes of sly humor enlivened it and the applause • as iuterspersed as pr -fusely as ever in a stump speech. Off hand interpola'ions were made. Speaking of the abolition of the poll tax as a qualification for suffrage he interjected the words, “and such men as Harvard students.” • he argument for woman suffrage was liberally app'auded. When urging reforms in various de partments ho said that fortunately tbe military was under control of the ciunman ler-in-ebief, a thrust of grim humor which caused side-shaking laughter. His earnest recommendation of the de «th penalty tor pe sons »ttempting to wreck or actually wreck ing • atlr* ad trains was applauded and there was an other outburs of laughter wh-n he said of the expenses for salaries of charatable and pauper offic ial* c mpared with the c st for supporting the poor aad the insane thatethe “ed was larger than the home.” He hit the faun manag inert of th^se institutions as run by a “half a d- zen colored larmers and employees.” Ilis arraignment of tbe board of health, lu acy and char ty did not make as much of accusation as was expected, though it was red in a slow an-i solemn manner. Comments of the Press. New Yokk, Jci 4.— I he -*un referring to Gen eral Hu ler s message says: It is a remarkable paper such as irigbt be oxpeoted from so r. marka ble a man.

MAINE’S FISHING INTERESTS. Report of the Portland Fish Bureau for 1882. By the kindness of Mr. Willard, of the firm of E G. Willard & Co., president of the Port land Fish Bareaa, we are able to lay before onr readers a copy of the doings of the Maine fleet for the past year, as forwarded to the Bos ton Fish Bureau to be incorporated in their annual report. It has always been impossible previously to collect these statistics, but since the . formation of the Portland Burean, last year, arid owing to its exertions, the work has been accomplished. The catch of cod and other ground fish landed at home ports is as follows: - ° .|§888||oio»|l|8S|8S88?g £ <1 u ®» w© ia»idt-t-o c J 2^V®cois ■* ©mVVi^c«»h ^^xcolo H g a:) W -• n»h *-<2 33 ^ w a cr W *!“§ :8g2g§gSS :gg : :8ggg2 =2 a g a aS •»®oZ®q^i» .3q.. ot-g-Jg :g s> 2 ® «*rf :-»a^ »«» :»n : :®j ■tS^a © ** c* 5*3 ;^|§g|S : : :g : :8 ,g§s| • : :gg : |g ■gdaSt-n®.* : : ;S • -q. :a.®w.3- • : :«» : .* S>-S^t-“>= • • ;e> : ■'» -NWt-g : . :»w ; m 5c : : • : : • I *• i £ •OOXUCOOX-2X^Oi-WrtQO I in s!

If the weight of the products alone is considered, the six principal species, placed in the order of their importance, are as fol lows: Pounds Cod. 66,004,325 Herring. 34.6M5 192 Mackerel. . 31,694,455 Hake.!. 24 447,730 Hadd ck. 17,728.735 Lobster. 14,234,182 If, however, the money value is considered, the relative importance of the species is some what different. The following arrangement represents t he fisheries according to their value: Herring fishery (including the sardine industry).$1,043,722 Mackerel fishery. 659,304 Cod tish-ry . 656,753 L'>b-ter fishery. 412,076 Hake fishery. 278,336 Haddock fishery. 225,393 The statistics are intended to represent the fishing interests for 1880. The first lobsters ever sannod within the limits of the United States were put up :n Eastport, in 1842, and, with the exception of a limited business in Boston at various times, Maine, has always had a monopoly of the industry for the entire country. In 1880 none were canned outside of the state, and the table, therefore, shows the extent of the business for the United States. The entire lobster catch of Maine for the year is found to be 14.234.182 pounds, of which 4,739,898 pounds were sold fresh, and 9,494.284 pounds were put up bv the twenty three canneries located in different parts of the state. Several of these can neries were owned by Boston capitalists, but the great majority belonged to Portland dealers, who, in addition to their home interests, oper ated 17 canneries in the British provinces. During the same season according to the sta tistics furuished by them, they bought 10,588, 578 ponnds of live 1 >bsters from the Provincial fishermen, from which they put up 2,198,024 cans of the various brands. Tbe sardine industry is peculiar to Maine. In fact, if we expect the menhaden, put up in Nr w Jersey several years ago, under the name of “shadines” and “club-fish.” the industry was, up to 1880, coDfiDed exclusively to the village of Eastport. Though experiments were made in the preDaration of herring as sardines as early as 1866, the business did not practically begin till 1875, since which time it has grown with remarkable rapidity. In 1880, as shown by the tables, it furnished employ ment to over 1.500 fishermen and factory hands in addition to 376 fisherman be'onging to N <w Brunswick, and the value of the products amounted to nearly $825,000. In the Atlantic Coast fisheries Maine em ploys 606 vessels, with 17,632 65 tonnage with 5,920 boats. 8,110 fishermen, 2,961 packers and factory bands, and takes 202,048,449 pounds fish of a total value of $3,614,178 with an In vested capital of $3,375,994. Somerset County Notes. Fairfield, Jan. 3. Mr. Editor:—The exciting question of the past few days is settled, and the wire pullers of the Democratic party are disappointed. When I wrote you Saturday, the question as to who would be Deputy Sheriff was in a tangle, and it looked as though Mr. Lawry would be re appointed, but instead Mr. Geo. O. Brown, a trader and well knowu citizen, received the commission, and has entered upon the duties. Now the people will wait with some interest to see what will be dona to check the liquor traffic in our midst. Io Kennebec county a Republican sheriff h >s declined to reappoint Mr. Matthews ot Waterville, a thorough-going temperance man who believes in tbe enforce ment of the law and has attempted to com nletely stop rumselllng. The reason reported Ib that Mr. Matthews is too radical. A brass band has been organized in this vil lage and will give their first concert next week. The following officers of Fairfield Lodge, No. 68,1. O. of O F , will be installed next Monday evening: Fred Rowell, N. G ; V. P. Stevens, V. G.; J. R Foss, R. and F. S.; W H. Emery, Treas.; S C. Mullen, W. C. Simp son, E. S. Crosby, Trustees. The Em ampment, which has for several vesm line,. | c*’es here, has lately been re moved to Waterville. Last I'ueteiay Mr H. E. Tuck, collector of taxe<. settled with the town officers, the entire taxes, amounting to over 816.000, having been paid over. Not a cent has been lost to the town or assumed by the collector. The errors n assessing amounted to about forty dollars. This is tbe sixth year that Mr. Tuck has filled this .'esnonsiblo office, and each year the entire amount has been in the hands of the treasurer on or before January 1st. By rtason of this the town has been able to reduce the rate of taxation, wipeout the indebtedness and show a good surplus on hand. Towns which are In debt and collecting undei the old system are advised to pay a fair per cent for the labor and demand prompt payment. Wednesday was a very cold day, the ther mometer indicating 18® below in the morning and 10° above at noon.
