EBEXSBl'RG, CAMBf.IA CO., PA., FRIDAY; DECEMBER IS, 1S!k. Mexico has made claims for indemoi ty upon this eovernmeDt for damages guffered hy the diversion of the waters of the Rio Grande. A report has been submitted to Sec retary Heibert upon the investigation of armor plate being made at Carnegit Iron works. Ex-Presidext Harrison has publicly denied that he is a candidate for the United States Senate and would not ac cept the nomination under any circum stances. It is indeed surprising that PennyN vanians submit to the dic tation of one man in the selection of I'nited State- wnaiors. tsut, men, ivnn.vlvama if- the "banner Kepublican state." ISi air county got an overdose of Mc Kinley jrfn!y or. Monday when tht rind .National JUnk of Hollidayfburg. an well m tbe Martinsburg Deposit Bmk, and the Williamsburg lUnk, closed their uoore. me oilicials of the respective banks eay that the suspension is onl temporary. iiiERE is an otiiect lesson in a FitU- w . . . lurg business house window, says thr iW The cartoons that were therein displayed prior to the election coarsely abusive of Bryan, and heralding "the advance agent of prosperity," have been displaced by a sheriff's sale placard The advance agent didut get there quit soon enough. The Philadelphia Reconi Almanac for 1S'.7 is on our table and a hasty glance at its pages Oiled with useful informa lion tells us that the Iln-onl almanac for the coming year has made no step backward but is still the same reliable reference book that has on each succed ing Xew Year taken its place within handy reach there to stay until its suc cessor drives it away. The advance agent of prosperty has reached the Indiana coal mines, and notices of eviction have been issued against a thousand miners employed by coal companies in the vicinity of Terra Haute, The operators want the tene ments for men; who will work for less than the established rate for mining. We would wager something that these coal rompanieg preached letter wages and steady employment should McKinley be elected. Amv.rihnu to every indication he military display at the inauguration of McKinley and Hobait on the 4th of March neit will be Tery imposing. Hie military organizations expected are the Twenty second regiment of New York, the eventh regiment of Xew York, the Pennsylvania National Cuard in its en tirety, and all of the New Jertey and Ohio militiamen. The Seventh regi ment have a sjcial train, and live in it while there. The Cuban Junta in permanant ses sion in New York has appointed General Juan Rius Rivera, second in command under the murdered General Maceo, in the province of Tinar del Rio, to succeed the murdered General in his command of that province. General Rivera is a trained soldier, fully equal at all points to the gallant man whom he succeeds. The war will be pushed with the great est vigor by the addition of thousands of recruits from the Gulf states and else where. Having succeded so well at the last session of the general assembly in secur ing legislation to strengthen its monopo ly, it is 6aid the Standard Oil company. will make another effort, at the coming meeting of the state legislature, in the same direction. An attempt will be made to repeal the free pipe line law o 1SS3. That act grants all pipe lines the right of eminent domain. It was secured by the independent producers and re liners after years of hard fighting. The repeal of that law now would re move all competition in Pennsylvania and make the monopoly of the Stand ard practically absolute. hat me Cuban general Maceo is dead hardly permits of a doubt, but how ne came to nis aeatn is oy no means clear. One story is that he was murder ed under a flag of truce; another that he mistook Spanish guerillas for the ad vance guard of Cubans he was to meet; another that he was fired on while leav ing a boat; another that he was in the field, and that when hard pressed he took shelter in a hut which was ignited, and as he fled from it was shot down; another that he was poisoned by the scoundrel Zertucha, and his body maimed after death to conceal the crime, and so on, some of these contradictory stories coming from Havana newspapers. The American Manufacturer in its edi tion last weak will say concerning tbe outlook in the iron and steel trade: On the whole the trade shows an im provemen which, however, is in no way pronounced. Eastern markets report only a fair business. Chicago reports a lull in pig iron but no weaker prices In Cleveland pig iron sales are slower, while no early advance is expected in Cincinnati. Locally the week has been uneventful In all lines there are preparations made for a greater production and a larger de mand. Some lines, however, show a tendency toward lower pnices. but there has been no big drop, while somewhat higher rates are being secured for future business. The reported trouble in the steel billet pool has had considerable effect on the market during the last two free kg. It is aiQOUDi J from Wa-hiDgton, says the llt-llefon- i M titchman, that the leading colored U'pul lioan club of that ... i t - t : 1 w'(i . city, winch was estaunnneu in i for the purpo.se of furthering Mclviu ley's election, opposes the suggestion of colored nma as a member of McKin ley's cabinet. It proposes that the new- President should Eive a nnmer of color ed men a share of the loaves and fishes ruber than to heap all the honor on one by a cabinet appointment. Do these deluded darkies think they have the slightest show for a cabinet of fice, or for any otlicial positions which ! white Republicans may consider worth occupying:' inougn mey eieci nrpuo lican presidents it i foolish for them to expect any of the orlices, except such ai- tre of a menial charactei, and theii chances for even such are slim in com petition with Republicans of the lo iown order who are willing to clean of ficial cuspidors. The colored brothers gave McKinley more than the popular majority that elected him. The last census showed that there were 1,700 00 negroes in the country qualified to vote, and it is with in bounds toiay that of this number at least 1,200,1 Hit) voted at the last elec tion, and as they are practiraily solid for Republican candidates, it is obvious that the votes they cast for McKinlej numbered almost half million more than his popular majority, which has settled down to about t.00,000 The addition of the vast mass of ne gro ignorance to the voting population of the country is one of the crimes which the Republican party has com mitted against the Republic. They an committing another by utilizing the semi-barbarous horde's of 'D.igos and Huns as voting material, that ignorant mass having leen secured by purchase ud intimidation at the last election ind we.e tit-eel conjointly with the ne groes in outvoting the intelligent arti sians and farmers who supported tht Democratic ticket and constitutional bi metallism. Reti'Rns from the collectors of cus toms at New York, Riltimore, ami oth er export markets show extraor dinary shipments of apples this year. which since the opening of the pe-ason in July have varied from 150,000 to 175,- 000 barrels a week. The total ship ments up te november 30 will exceed 1.- 750,000 barrels. This surpasses all re cords. The largest previous shipments were during the winter of lS'.M when the total reached 1,450,000 l.arrelc; bin the total thus far with several iiiontb. remaining, now surpasses thaj high wa ter mark by over :oo,IRi barn Is Last year the shipments were only 75o.om barrels. In l-'.'l they were only 171.- ooo barrels. Most of the-e apnU-s have- gone to I.iverjmol nearly two t ird-s of them: 375,tNi to lndn. :;ie;.(nni to Iasgow and o,ohi to Germany, which is practically a new market, and by cul tivation may l? made very valuable Good apples are now Ftliir.fr in New York at from $1 to 1 25 a barrel. The The present rates of freight to Liverjiool are three shillings, or 75 cents a barrel. and to Ixindon t cents. The rate to Hamburg is 75 centsand to interior points of Germany $1. Very few apples go to France. The orchards of that country usually furnish sutlicient for the local demand, and French apples often compete with those from the Uni ted Htates in the British markets- At the present time Massachusetl seems to have set the example and pace for the country. According to a recent report of the Road Commission of that Commonwealth, the total expenditure of the State on its road work this year has been o00,000, and it is expected that the legislature will be asked for fSOO.000 for 1S'J7. The commission has has been in existence for only three years and during that time 130 miles of im proved highways have been constructed The fact that a larger sum of money is expected to be voted during the coming year than in the present one is sutlicient evidence that the work done is satisfac tory to the people and is regarded as an economy in every sense of the word. It is computed that in some districts of Massachusetts there has been an av erage rise in the value of property along improved roads of over $6 an acre. It is moreover estimated that the losses to farmers in that State in hauling their product over mud roads as compared with the cost of hauling it over improved roads amounts to more than enough to pay for the improvements. It will be soon, therefore, that as the profit in the hauling of produoe pays for the cost of the road the advanced value in the land is a clear gain to the land owners. Another project for the partition of Turkey has been announced by the Lon don Daily News. The scheme contem plates the occupation by Russia of that part of Turkey bounded by the Bos phorus on the west, the Black Sea on the north and the Taurus Mountains on the south; the establishment of joint protectorate by tne I owers over Constantinople; the dismantling of the forts of the Dardanelles; the opening of that channel, as well as of the Sea of Marmora and the Bosphorus, to the free navigation of the vessels of all nations, including ships of war; and finally the abdication of the Sultan. The plan is incomplete however, inasmuch as it fails to provide for the distribution of those parts of the Sultan's Empire not assign ed to Russian occupation. The Daily Xeus, morever, is in the habit of discov ering a new scheme for tbe dismeiuber mentof Turkey about once in every fort night; it might be well, therefore, to suspend judgment upon its latest an nouncement until tbe report shall have been confirmed from other quarters. The mine owners in Lackawanna county, who have to carry on their bus iness with the aid of shot guus, will no doubt soon reach the conclusion that cheap labor is the (dearest. There is nothing like experience to clear away economic delusions. ItatiUngtotl Letter. Washington, December 12tb, lHi'o 'Dear !$: Unlet you can buy sev eral more senators it will be impossible to pay a tariff dividend on the inter ments of the late campaign " Winle the above is not the exact wording of the message eeut by the caucus of Kepuhli can Senators to King Htan.i. it con tains the substance aud real meaning o the req-iest of the caucus steering -om-niittee. that Mr. Hamia shsll try to ' in fluence" the election of senators who will pledge themselves to act with the Republicans on the tariff, in S-'veral i states Among trie legislatures upon which the Republican senators ilesire Mr. Hanna to try his '-liiliuence are those of North Carolina, Kentucky. Washington and South Dakota If nigh tariff senatois can be secured for all all of these, the passage of a high tariff bill at the extra session of the next eougrtss will le assured. Otherwise the matter has been made very doubtful, with the chances against high tariff, by the action of the silver Republicans in declining invitati ns to euter the Repub lican senatorial caucus While the caucus of Republican sen atoit Uid not by a formal vote abaudon the Dingley tariff bill, they did what was practically the same thing when they referred it to the steering committee and empowered that C mniittee to act np iu its own in. lenient. Pressure from the woolen manufacturers may compel the Republican senators to demonstrate by some sort of a vole, not necessarily on the bill itself, that the Dingley bill can not pass, but the bill is as dead as Ren Harrison's force bill, so far as any seri ous attempt to pass it is concerned Tne Republicans couldn't pass it if ttiey wanted to, and very few of them want to 1'tiis was shown this week when the dill was lefore the senate for a few min utes (ud Senator Allen's motien to tike it up, which was carried by a vote of 35 to 21), by the consternation which exist ed among the Republicans who had vo ted for the motion because they were afraid to do otherwise. Representative Stokes of S. C. has beeu served with notice of a double con test for his seat in the present and in the next house. Dr. stokes came to Wash ington iast year with the prop r certifi cate of election but his seat was conttit ed by Mr. Johnson, a Republican. Fiuding nothing in the case up.ni which tc base an excuse for giving Johnson the seat, the Republicans of the house declared the seat vacant. Tbe two men were again candidates ami Dr. Stok-s was elected to the vacancy and a!so to the next house. Johnson's contet-t de pends more upon tho Republican ma jority thnn it does upon any evidence tie expects to produce. Senator Rlanchard voiced the senti ment of near'y ail of the D.-mocratu in Kith branches of cangrtss when he said: 'The Iemocratic party, while beaten in the recent selection, is compact, organi- .J, anil full of hope for the future. It simply bides its time. It has l- st ma erial which can te spared, and gained ots of friends, adhcreuts, and well-wish ers, it lias always tMtn a partv ol won- le'fol reciier-.ttive capacity. Jt will le ready for the fray in lS'.ts and in l'.'Oo. Woe to the R'puhli''an party if it d s net make good that dat)gerns pronu.-e It has heralded throughout the lend of prosjierity and good tunes." Senator tuay has at-tonished those who thought they kn-w him, not on'y by his c hange of tactics he has here tofore been the most silent of fighters but by the wording of some of his pul- lished interviews against thectndidacy Mr. John Wauamaker for the senate, ror instance, when he said: "In the United States senate, we havd millionaires and business men enough to serve all legitimate purjxises. Senators are needed who have no Secialties but who will act fo the interest of the country in gross witht out special allinities. The people most doserving of representation and most in need of legislative protection are the farmers, the small store keepers, the ar tisans and the laborers, and I stand by them" The truthfulnessof the above is unquestioned, but that it should come from Mr. Quay is astonishing. While not himself a millionaire, Mr. Quay has always hail the reputation of being in touch with the millionaires of the coun try. But, he is first ot all a politician. and as such is apt to make use of what he thinks to be the most effective weap ons to carry his purpose. Senator Mills has left all the other re solutions relating to Cuba away behind by offering one directing the president to take forcible possession of Cuba and hold it until the Cubans organize a gov ernment of their own. The house is going right ahead pass ing bills just as though the senate calen dar was not already choked up with house bills passed at the last session haven't a ghost of a chance to get acted upon. lne Mountain would not go to Ma- I . r.i . . . iiuinei eu luauumpi went to the moun tain.

Mme Jerocka was a claimant for J2.000.000. which her famous granduncle had ad vanced to the United States government to aid in the war of independence.

Dropped Dead Passing the Lie. ooutn lietnienem, Pa., Dec. 15. White an itinerant peddler of medicine was naranguing a crowd and giving a show at Weaversville, a village thiw miles north of this place, last night one of the spectators, named Keim, excited ly 6aid to another: "Don't you call me a liar!" and then dropped dead in his tracks. The excitement had caused heart disease and instant death. Keim was a farmer, 32 years old, and leaves a wife and child. Some man in the crowd had addressed a pet name to a weman who was assisting the medi cine peddler. Keim had been pointed out as the man. He, however, insisted that it was his accuser who did it, and the latter called Keim a liar, with the result stated. The daughters of the Prince of Wal could swim before they could read.

A communication from United States Senator Mills standing by his resolution in the national congress and declaring that it meant war with Spain if necessary was read and created the wildest enthu siasm. Speeches were made by promi inent Texan-. Resolutions endorsing the stand taken by Senator Mills were passed by a unanimous vote, also a res olution deploring the death of Maceo.
