The secretary of agriculture is pre paring for the governor a brief statement of the status of the agricultural societies of the commonwealth. Hisbooks show I'H county organizations, sixty three be ing represented by members on the state board of agriculture, and which under the art of 1851, are entitled to a county bounty. The hay crop of this country is about O,OO0,(KH per annum. It is less or more some years, but is one of the most important crops grown, being in value aUmt e-.-ual to corn and twice as much as the cotton crop. But very little of it is exported, nearly the whole being con sumed or finding a market at home. The growing of hay pays as well as any staple crop on the farm. Priii.Ai.Ei.rniA had a fire on Sunday morning which destroyed property esti mated to ie worth a million and a half dollars. The Haseltine building and the American Baptist Publication build ing were totally destroyed and the La fayette Hotel damaged to the extent of nUu:t f '-j ,(KX). The Haseltine collection of pictures, worth :i50,000, was also destroyed. The tire occurred at Broad and Chestnut streets. A KKrrr.ucAX contempary says: "The jieople of this country are losiug fs.lW.tHH- a year by slaughtering their sheep, iustead of clipping the fleeces, as they did lefore the duty was taken off wool." On the other hand, the people of this country are making $40,000,000 a year, by reason of the removal of tariff on wool, in leing enabled to purchase cheaper and better clothing, tlannels aid blankets. New Yokk architects have completed plans fir a 200 story building in that city. The plans were prepared by order of a Gotham capitalist who proposed to have the structure erected. It vwill oc cupy an eniire city block. It is design ed somewhat after the Eiffel tower, except that it will le nearly three times as high. There will be a total of 24,000,000 square feet of space on the 200 floors It will contain 100,000 separate offices or looms, capable of accommodating -ttM.tHX) persons under oue roof. Mr. and Mrs. John W. Mackay and their son Clarence were among the pas sengers on board Ijl Touraine, the French liner which arrived at New York, on Saturday, after a tempestous voyage The Mackays brought with them the body ot their son John W ., who was thrown from his horse and killed while hunting at his country seat near Paris, O.-tober 18 last. The remains will be taken to San Francisco, where they will be placed in the magnificent mausole um recently erected by the elder Mack ay. Is these days when the genius of re form is abroad in the land and political traders everywhere find it necessary to take desperate means of self defense, it is not surprising tosee even so astute an old stager as Tom Piatt, the Republican b' ss of New York, come forward with a tale of woe about treason in his party camp, the knavish tricks of reformers and the ruin that hangs over the Re publican party if it does not stand by gentlemen who are past masters in the art of making the party machinery con tribute to their own aggrandizement. The Republicans iu the senate, hav ing warmed the free silver viper in their tiogoms, are now suffering the conse quences of their own greed and political contriving. The Dingley "Revenue" bill, like the Dingley bond bill, has been reported back to the senate with all the Dingley business cut out of it and a free coinage proposition substituted. Thus Populism strikes at the public credit from under the cloak of Republicanism. Happily, in this instance protectionism of one sort has been side-tracked and submerged by protectionism of another sort. They are both of the same brood, and lottomed upon the same vicious principle. urn una J" uxuiiui. Amoso the queer items in the audi tors' report is that under the head of "classificition of expenditures" in the report of the receipts and expenditures of poor and bouse employment as pub lished in this issue. The items are as follows: "By amount expended by Thos. Hoover for three months ending March; 1S95, fS,57V54; Anil, paid Thomas Hoover for l." trips to Johnstown, and pumping not included in abve amount, $375,00; amount expended by Thomas J. Hughes for 9 months ending Decem ber 31, ISO.) $10,550,04," and the clas sification ends. Of course the intelligent reader will see at a glance that the object of the "jays" who for the first time interjected the classification" into the reports was to inject into the reader the belief that what was costing the taxpayers under Steward Hoover about $2,S00 per month was only costing about f 1..S00 under .Steward Hughes. But as the classifica shows nothing, and when the fact is considered that the same directors issued the orders to pay the $8,570,54 under Hoover, that issued the orders to pay $16,550,04 under Hughes, we conclude that the first three months were about as honestly conducted as the latter nine. As to the item "amount paid Thomas Hoover for 15 trips to Johnstown and pumping not included in above amount $375.00," it is as clear as mud and that is about as clear as the present board of auditors could make anything. But why not include the pumping and tell us what kind of pumping was done? Was the pumping done in Johnstown, or along the road or at the almshouse? Was it for pumping water, pumping beer or pumping Director Sumerville's son on the pay roll? Was 6ome of the pumping done on each trip or was it all done at one time? If the auditois had given the items that made up the various amounts, in cluding the "pumping" the "classifica tion" would furnish Eome information, but as it is it shows to nothing. The English parliament will meet in a few days, and the Salisbury ministry that went in with such a tremendous majority finds itself at the outset in hot water, which the patriotic furor caused by the quick equipment for service of the Hying squadron will hardly dissipate. In rejecting arbitration on the Venezu elan boundary, with the attendant re sult of a sharp and dangerous issue with the United States, the premier is clear ly out of touch with English sentiment. John Morley. who stands in succession to Gladstone as the Liberal leader in his canvass for a seat in parliament at a by election, has declared in favor of arbi tration to settle the Ixjundary question. The Liberals will also challenge the Ar menian-Turkish policy of indifference and timidity set forth in Ixrel Salisbury's recent speech, which is freely denounced in England. This speech sets heavy on the English conscience for one thing, and the confession of inability to disci pline Turkey, while Russia, which stands ready, is prevented only by Eng land's opposition, is something of a hu miliation. The intense selfishness of the foreign policy of Britain has its best illustration ia these incidents. Sexator Qcay, says the Fittsburg W, is an apostle of the quality of "smartness" in politics, hence he should congratulate the silverites on the persistent and curious wiy they press their financial fad, instead of showing temper, as he is alleged to have done The senator well knows the so-called emergency tariff bill, which is an at tempt to revive Mckinleyism, does not stand the ghost of a chance of becoming law. His riding that horse, therefore, is simply on a par with the tactics of the silventes, as they know there is no chance of a free coinage law. It is t case of diamond cutdiamond. The sen ator when he promoted the bargain which gave the silverites, contiol of the senate finance committee dealt winning cards to his colleague and other free coinage senators. There is no more chance of the tariff bill becoming a law than there is of free coinage, and both should be dropped. The advocates of high protective tar iffs never tire of referring to the year 1S02 as indicating the Hood tide of in dustrial prosperity in the United States There is no doubt that 1S92 was t prosperous year. There was an extra ordinary European demand both in 1S01 and in 1S02 for our agricultura products, which helped matters material ly. It may, however astonish our man ufacturers to know that in 1S02 our exports of manufactured goods were less by nearly 40 million dollars than in the year 1S95. The country is striding forward at a great pace in finding a for eign market for manufactured goods In 1S02 our manufactures were less than one-sixth of our total exports. In 1S05 they were one-fourth of the exports This is a marvelous change following upon a modification of tariff rates chief ly in the direction of untaxing raw ma terials. A rich gold discovery is reported from Flint Creek, in the Georgetown Mon tana, district. Nine weeks ago Sam Snyder, a destitute and hungry Butte prospector, trailed a deer over the hil! and accidentally disco verd a fabulously rich ledge, which he has since been working alone and in secret. He went to town a few days ago with thousands of dollars' worth of gold, and the re ports of men who have since inspected the property say that Snyder has a mill ion dollars . in sight, bis prospect hole is only about ten feet deep. The vein is only eight inches wide so far as developed, but is yellow with virgin gold. The report has caused a stam pede into the new district.

C, Feb., 1. 1S9G. rresideiit Cleveland spent a day duck ghooting this week and that may have Etarted the rumor of his iutentiou to de cline forwarding to the European na tions which signed the lierlin treaty that concurrent congressional resolution, ex pressing sympathy for the Armenians and calling upoit the powers named to enforce the Beilia treaty and com el Turkey to prelect the Armenians, ou the ground that to do so would be a violation of the American policy inaug urated by Washington and iudoised by all our presidents, of avoidiug entangle ments in European politics Whether the president has any such intention is doubtful The resolution i'self beiug a concurrent one does not require the president's signature to become binding, nor ca:; it bevttcd by him. It "re quests" him to eommui icite the resolu tion to the governments of the countries named, and while it would be unusual for him to decline, he has tue right to do so if he thinks it best. Should he do so it will not be because he does not sympathize with the condition of the Armenians, as he expressed his sym pathy for them in strong words in his aujual message to congress. Cuban matters came to the front with a rush when Seuator Morgan, of Ala bama, on behalf of the senate commit tee on foreign relations, reported a lengthy resolution setting forth the un fortunate condition of affairs in Cuba and their depressing effects upon our commercial interests, and requesting the president to use his good orhces with vpain to get the Cubaus recognized as belligerents, in order that the fighting in Cuba may be governed by the rules of war. No one expects that Spain will agree, but if she doesn't it is altogether probable that the United States will, un less there is a change in the situation. Senator Tillman, of South Carolina, made the speech this week which showed that he lacks the respect which every man should feel for the occupant of the president's chair, and that he is more of a Populist than a Democrat. It also showed ljut why write more about it. Senator Thurston, of Nebraska, more than balanced the speech of Senator Wolcott, of Colorado, against the Mon roe doctrine resolution, now before the senate, by one in its favor which specifi cally pointed out the eriors upon which Mr. Wolcott built his argument. An swering the stitemenls made iu English papers about the people of the United states being divided in sentiment sena tor Thurston said: "Standing upon the lloor of the American senate, knowing whereof I speak, I say to the people oi Great Britain that the grave issues which have been settled bv brave men upon American battlefields cau never be re opened again. Sir, there is no division of sentiment in the L'uited States. Let but a single drum beat be heard upon the coasts announcing the approach of a fereign foe, and there will spriugtoarms n North and South the gravest army the world has ever known; animated by a dea bless loyalty to their country's nag, and marching to the mingled and inspiring strains of our two national airs Yankee Doodle and Dixie." The editors of those newspapers which are printing what purjort, to be ac counts of the bids received by the treai- ury department for those bonds have probably not carefully read the call for those bids. If they will do so they will discover that the bids are to be "sealed" and not to be opened until February 0 ith the exception of a few letters con taining bids, which were opened, by mis take, owing to their not being endorsed on the outside "bids for bonds," no bids have been opened at the treasury, and none will be opened before the date specified. This makes it plain that when a newspaper prints the amount of bids submitted and the prices offered it either has an accomplished second sight man, or an unblushing liar, upon its staff. Secretary Carlisle doesn't know the contents of the sealed bids, but he knows the bonds will be sold, because intending bidders have so assured him A dinner party of gen lemen only was entertained by Senator Murphy, of New York, at his Washington residence, this week, and one has only to glance over the names of the guests to be certain that matters were discussed that would interest every Democrat, could the con versation be with propriety made public Senator Murphy's guests were Senators Hill, Brice, Gorman, est, Smith, White. Pugh, Roach, Chilton, Faulkner and Walthall, and Representatives Crisp, Baitlett, Sultzer aud Cumings and Hon. Richard Croker, of New lork iu whose honor the dinner was given It will be noticed that every man of the party is a Democrat of the rock ribbed, tried and found true variety. 1 don't know that they discussed presiden tial politics, but if all of that party will agree on a candidate his nomination might be regarded as settled. The debate on the free coinage sub stitute for the house bond bill, which had dragged ever since the measure wa6 reported to trie senate from the finance committee, became quite lively in its closing hours, although everybody knew just what the vote would result in. M Lumber Trust Formed. Port Townsend, Wash., February 3. 1 he biggest trust ever formed on the Pa cific coast, and representing a capital of over ,o,ouu,otio, went into effect last night. It is the Central lumber, com pany, of California, and its membership includes every lumber mill, - all ship owners, wholesale and retail dealers of the western coast of the United States and British Columbia. All charters of vessels and sales of lumber must be ef fected through the Central lumber com pany, which regulates freights and nut the buying and selling price on all lum ber, regulating also the product of each mill, and the proportionate amount of 1 I I , t. lumuer eacu vessel snail carry during the year, l-.very mill on the coast has its product regulated. The first order issued by the company was to advance the price of lumber $2 per 1,000. Las year the estimated product of the coast was COO.000,000 feet, and this advance will enhance the profits of mill owners the coming year over $1,000,000. Effort to Save Holmes. Philadelphia, February 3 The ap pcai ui xierman . luogett alias 11. II Holmes, the convicted murderer of Ben jamin F. Pirtzel, came up for argument in the supreme court to-day. Samuel P. Rotan, counsel for Holmes, in his argument made a point that the evi aence ot .Miss ohe against Holmes fcnouiu not nave been admitted inas mucn as she had been the wife Holmes. Miss Yohe was married to Holmes, believing his name to be How ard. She subsequently denounced him. Rotan also criticised the action of Judge Arnold in having allowed District Attorney Graham to prejudice the jury by reference in his opening address to the alleged murder by Holmes of the Pietzel children in different pvrts of the country.

Although the result ou the final vote on the silve-r substitnte to the tariff bill is iu a great deal of doubt, there seems to 1h3 a very general opinion that the resolution of Senator Quay will le defeated, as it is asserted that all the Democrats ami all the Populists will vote aframst it. If this is true the motion cannot carry ami the contest will come lire-tly uiion the substitute. Some stnind money Democrats are inclined to supiirt the Ouar motion, but most of them take the position that they sIkjuM vi:t. against the motion us a means of killing the tariff bill. ' Chairman Morrill made the report To the senate stating that a free silver amendment had taken the place of the original biy, and adding, amid laughter, the lssiig phrase of official procedure of Massachusetts, "and may God save the commonwealth." Mr. Quay made two attempts to have the bill recommit ted to the committee with instructions to rort ba k separate tariff and free silver bills, but was cut eff by parlia mentary obj.-e tions. His re solution for recommittiiK'iit will ceiue up, under the rules, today. The substitute was suggested by dil ator Ve st ami was agreeil to by a major ity of one, Senator Joiie-s ef Ne-vada voting with the D-mocrats for the sul stitnte, and all of the Republicans pres ent voting against it. Se-nator Wolcott of Colorado was the only Republie-an absentee-, and he was re!cerdt as voting against the substitnte. Se-nator Jones of Arkansas, the only De'inocratic liie-m-ber not pivse-nt, was rverdeel as voting for it. Tho substitute agree-d to is in the? e-xaet words of the silve-r substitute for the imnd bill, which passed the se'U ute. em Saturdav. The men ting of the eHimniittw eud net last to e-xce-e-d half an hour, and was devoid of a siK'cial feature be-yond the offering and aeteiption of the substitute. The Republicans breraght up the tariff bill and e-xpn-sse'el a elesire to g't It eut of committee in some shape. "When Mr. Ye-st pro os. el the silve-r substitute it was re-marked that the se-nate' had al ready leeu through one silver fight this session, ami the eipinion was e-xpresse-u that another e-ontet ceiuld avail little or iiethiiig.
