EBESSBI K, CAMBRIA CO., FA., FRIDAY, FEKKUAKY 12, 1T. As ice bridge has formed over Niaga ra Fails and the ice spectacles there are said to be exceptionally beautiful. The most promising bit of pasturage in the hands of the g. o. p., in Penn sylvania is the building of a new capitol building. What an stealing will be there. opportunity for the new ryetem of a double snandard and under the present single gold stand ard, and if a majorijy of the arbitrators happened to be gold men would proba bly get a decision in favor of the claim Last week agents for the British gov ernment bought 100,000 bushels of corn in New York city to be shipped to India for seed, and this is the beginning of corn raising in India. It is the first , I. . I Via a hwn Rhinned to India UUi U lLa MJ ay-w K A, from America. The presidency of the Pennsylvania railroad ss a pretty big office. It com niands a salary pretty nesrly as large as that of the president of the Lnited statps. and the incumbent has almost as many employes as the government but in spite of that election of Mr Thompson was an exceedingly quiet af fair: there were no booms, and the elec tion of a6ingle constable in the smallest ward of a city often creates more pertur bation. The destruction of the State House at Harrieburg last week suggests some pos sibilities. There is laterally millions in puttiDg up a Staie Capitol or a city hall. The city hall of Philadelphia was de signed to cost 4,000,000. It bos so far cost 20,000,000. and the end is not even in sight. Whole generations of politi cians have fattened upon it. The New York Capitol building at Albany was tl so designed to cost $5,000,l0O, and it is still unfinished after thirty years, having so far cost $23,000,000. The new Capi tol of Rhode Island started out to cost l, 500,000, and an additional appropri ation of $1,675,000 has just been re quired. The decision of Judge Mcllvaine, in the Washington county court, regaid ing gas leases, is one of great import ance to the owners and lessees of oil and gas bearing terri'ory. The facts in the case were these. Ten years ago a nat ural gas company took a 20-year lease on a piece of land, drilled a well, and produced gas. In two years it was ex hausted and no more wella were drilled. After allowing the land to lie idle eight years, the company began to deepen the original hole, in the hopes of finding another pocket of gas. The lessor held that the long abandonment had worked a forfeiture of the lessee's rights; he sued for demages and an order restrain ing the lesse from trespassing on his laud. The court decided that the lease holds good and that the lessor has the right to operate until the expiration of the lease. Those who pretend to know say that much of the apple butter on the market is made of pumpkins. Raspberry jellies sold at cheap prices doesn't contain an iota of the raspbeiry, being largely com posed of glucose, artificially flavored and colored. Other fruit jellies, similarly put up. are similar frauds, unless they are high-priced goods from a well-known house. Much of the honey so tempting ly put up in glass jars is adulterated with glucose. The so-called cooked or pre pared vegetables, like peas and beans, and canned goods, are prepared by be ing heated and then having salicylic acid thrown over them to prevent their turning sour. This kine of acid is very severe upon the lining of the stomach and it arrests and retards digestion. The beautiful green peas known as "French peas" come from Ohio instead of France, and being copper colored they are made aa unwholesome imita tion. The bulk of the "imported" Lim berger and Switzer cheese is made in Winconsin. The cheap table cheese is made of milk from which the butter has leen taken, and oils and tallow sub stituted. It is very hard to get pure olive oil; equally hard is it to get pure spices, particularly ground pepper which is largely mixed with ground bark. Biking soda is mixed, very bad ly mixed sometimes, and so are powder ed sugars and baking powders. Now that the Capitol building at Har risburg has been burned down we shall be told again' and again how far behind the age and how inadequate it was for the business transacted in it; and the legislature will be grandiloquently ad jured, now that opportunity has ar rived, to provide for a structure suited to the wealth, dignity and possible fu ture puissance of this great common wealth. As a matter of fact this is all fudge and fustian. The old Capitol was well enough. Hie new Capitol should be so substantially built as to furnish com fortable and convenient quarters for the transaction of the public business by the Executive and Legislature. Unless we shall bring about mighty improvement in the quality and calibre of the men whom we choose to make and execute our law?, to provide ornate and costly housing for them would be grotesque. The cage should be suited to the bird. A round sum fixed in advance, for a Capitol designed in advance of erection, to be paid for when completed, without extras, is what the 6tate is entitled to hive. Bat a capitol projected upon in definite, expensive Jand extraordinary plans, correspondent to future possibili ties rather than immediate serviceable ncss, is what the people may expect. And oh, what a job there will be if the jobbers shall be permitted to arrange gutters to their likingl i Senator Daniel has made a point gainst the arbitration treaty which may result in arraying the silver senators sol- dly against its ratification. The point is that if the United States should adopt the free coinage of silver while that treaty was in force. England could put in her claim for the difference between the value of principal and interest of American debts held in England, under We wish to call the attention of those American citizens who are making sar- 1 castic and sardonic remarks about the "return of McKinley prosperity," and the -'advance courier of prosperity" and all that sort of thing, says the Harris- burg Patriot, that they are making a grave mistake. They should read the history of the past seven years, not that they need know everything that is writ ten in the name of history, to grasp and realize the fact that McKinley prosperi ty is here. Immediately after the passage of the McKinlev law in 1SW wages began to j fall, as they have in many cases since McKinley's election, 'he contrast to these be in e waee iocreBSes because of the operation of the Wilson law. In 1S90 mills began to close, and since the maior'8 election mills that had never w closad before shnt down. When thai high tariff bill became a law, banks be gan to fail and much rascality was dis closed. Since last November there has been a loDg Drocession of bank failures and defalcations. When the McKinley bill was in preparation manufacturers went to Washington and told congress men what tariffs they wanted, and these were placed in the law subsequently en acted; and this is being done now. Af ter the enactment of the law, manufac turers, who got what they wanted in the way of "protaction to American labor," cut down the wages of their employes, The men now most loudly insistent upon tariff for the "protection of Amer ican labor" are the very ones who made these wage reductions. After the Mc Kinley bill was passed soup houses flourished and charitable associations did a large business; this state of affairs is again coming into prominence. There has len only one kind of Mc Kinley prosperity, and it was misfor tune to industries and hardsships to workingmen. The country would rath er have the fortune it is enjoying under the Wilson law, with a favorable balance of trade of $320,000,000. The only prosperity McKinley can give us is here, but nobody is enjoying it, and a higher tariff will not make it more palatable. The farmers are to be looked after, says the Pittsburg Post, in the way of humbugging them. In the occasional glimpses we got of the progress making on the new taruf bill we often come acroo the statement that "the interests of the agricultural class are to be looked after," and there will lie a restoration of the McKinley duties on farm products. With corn in use as fuel in the big grain belt and begging for buyers at 12 cents a bushel, what benefit is there likely to come to the farmer of an in creased "protective" duty amounting to 50 per cent, instead of the Wilson rate of 15 per cent? The idea of making the agricultural class prosperous by tariff taxes on articles of which we import none, except for seed purposes, is the most bald-faced attempt at humbug ever devised in this country, and we lead the world in ingenious humbug in politics and legislation. The farmer wants wider foreign markets and untaxed n cessanes of life, so that he will not be continually selling in the cheapest mar ket and buying in the dearest, thus burning the candle at both ends. American agriculture is depressed be cause it has been subjected to such bur- Hens lor the last 30 years. It is to le said, however, that when it comes to vo ting the farmer rather enjoys being humbugged. It is true we import a large class of ag ricultural products, but they are suchar tides as are not produced in this coun try at all, or not in sutlicient amounts to meet the demands for consumption. In 1S96 the excess of agricultural exports over imports was 190,000,000. Of the imports sugar, tea and coffee aggregated nearly $200,000,000 of the total. We imported but $2,7S0,000 of breadstuffs, while we exported $141,350,000 and yet our wise legislators propose a big tax on the importation of breadstuffs as a meas ure of relief to the farmers. Our exports of cotton and cottonseed oil during the same time was $190,000,000. Would a duty on wheat and corn help the northern farmer, or a tax on cotton aid the southern farmer? These figures sh ow how dependent our crops of bread stuffs and cotton are upon a foreign market. A war for business is being waged with savage competition between the Carnegie Steel company, of Tittsburg, and the Illinois Steel company, of Cui gago. The fight began in Chicago on Monday after the break of the steel pool, when the Illinois concern charged that the Pittsburg firm was invading its ter ritory and was shading prices. To meet the competition it met the prices offered by the Carnegie company's agents, and the latter came back with still lower prices. The railroad buyers played the two firms until open quotations were $17 Pittsburg and $18 Chicago for rail? of standard sections, which means actu al selling prices of $13 and $16, respect ively.

Washington Letter. Washington, February 5th, 1S97. The scheme to keep Stuator-elect Kh ney of Delaware, out of his seat, wrnch was concocted by "Little Billee" Chand ler and other Republicans of his ilk, is in a fair way to fall through. Al though the senate committee on elec tions is controlled by Republicans it has refused to be a party to this scheme to the extent of reopening the claim of Du Pont to the sent, and it is not btlievtd that the llin.sy claim of Gas Addicks will be se.iously con sidered by the committee at all A Re publican senator said to day thai ne thought Kenney's credential were all right and that he was sausneu ne nuuiu be seated. Nobody seems to have any idea that the amended arbitration treaty with En eland, which has been favorably rejwrt- i.-. tho senate, will be acted upon at iLis session. In fact, its friends would be afraid to force a vote at this time lest it should result in rejection of the treaty. One of the legacies of the Harrison administration is a treaty that binds the United States to pay $6,000 a year to wards the support of a monarchy and an almighty poor specimen of monarchy at that: The treaty in question was made with Germany and England and the money goes to pay the expenses of the semi-savage King of bamoa. A year or so ago President Cleveland re commended legislation looking towards the abrogation of tois treaty, and each year there has beeu a protest made when the house reached the item of the diplu malic and consular appropriation bill carrving that $0,000. This week when the item was reached Representative McMillin moved that it be struck out. because he did not think it right that our people should be contributing mon ey to the support of a monarchy any where and under any circumstances, but his motion was voted down, not because a majority of the house favored the ap propriation but because they considered that as long as the treaty is allowed to stand we are in honor bound to pay our share of the money. General Bradlev T. Johnson, who was recently in Cuba is now in Washinglon and doing some very plain talking. For instance he said: The Cubans will surely succeed unless the policies of the administration in aiding Spain cru hes hope out of the Cubans. Every power, the army, the navy, the judiciary, of this great government is now in active operation to aid Spain and crush the re bellion. Every power will be exerted during the next administration to the same end. The money power demands peace, quiet, rest; but behind it all is the irresistible, omnipotent, all-prevailing force of manifest destiny which controls history, directs the ages, and is also- lutely beyond and above the force of onp generation, and controls them all. In this case, the will, the hope, the euthu- siusni of the American people over whelms Wall street and the peace of the money-changers, and will have free Cu ba." Hon. John W. Kern, of Indiana, now in Washington, says of the Democ racy of his state: "The Democratic party in Indiana is as full of life and in as good condition as it has been during any time within the last twenty years Every day since the election has inten sified the belief of the voters out our way, who supported the Chicago ticket, that they had the right side of the argu ment. Instead of higher wages and full time, promised by the Repulicans. wage-earners have experieneed a de crease in their earnings since last No- vemkr. Even now there are thousands of good meti who were scared or bun coed into leaving the Democratic party inai are very wining to come into me fold once more. They realize that they have been made the victims of a big confidence game. The dismissal for the second time of a silver Democrat from the treasury de partment may result in a scandal. The man dismissed is Mr. William E Ryan, an expert accountant, who was a candi date forcongress in the Rochester (N. Y.) district last November. Mr. Ryan wa first dismissed the da' after election. On uecemoer na he secured a re-ap- pointmen tit a reduced salary, under a civil service certificate. He recently served notice of his intention ti content the election in his congressional district, on the ground that the use of the Myers Ballot Machine was illegal, and this week he was again dismissed. It is said he was given a hiut by a person in author ity that it would not he wise for him to make a contest, and he thinks he now knows why. If Senator Chandler can tell in the speech he has promised to make on his resolution declaring it to be the sense of the senate that this country should not permanently accept the single gold stand ard, but should strive to have gold and silver put on the same term by the free coinage of both, any other reason for the adoption of the resolution than the bam boozling of silver Republicans into the belief that their party is going to do something for silver the silver majority in the senate will doubtless vote to adopt his resolution, although they and every one else know that it would le meaning less so far as accomplishments are con cerned.

The Steamer Nimrod, which went out in search of the missiug steamer State of Georgia, is frozen iu an ice lloe five miles south of Cape Ilace. Two of her crew came ashore over the iee to day to re port that the Nimrod had found no trace of the missing steamer after steaming 170 miles north.

Krly in the week at the close of banking hours one of the clerks closed the safe door, but failed to start the time clock, which operates the combination. The omission was not ''iseovered until next morning when all efforts to open the safe proved futile. An expert was sent from the safe-makers iu Cincinnati. He said the only way to get the safe open was to start the clock. This he did by getting a large piece of timber and with six men, using it as a batteiing ram, they pounded on the door until the jar staried the timepiece. Then there whs nothing to do but wait until the clock ran the required number of hours, when the door was readily opened. The bank lost four days as a result of the mishap. Want alarics K educed.

I'rt the Captaln-tieneral Talk About the Hebrli Itclnc; Pacified la That Prov ince Another Train lilown I'p by the Insurgents No Compromise. Copyrighted.l Havana, Feb. 10. The various re ports aud statements of Captain Gen eral Weyler announcing the pacification of the province of Piiiar del Uio and the almost complete disappearance of the insurgents in that part of the island, are far from being liorne out by facts. As intimated in these dispatches when the Spanish commander made the re marks cited, if Pinar del Ric was as quiet as he alleged it to be what has be come of the arms, horses, amuiiitiou. stores, etc., of the 7,000 men whom he admitted were under arms there. As a matter of fact, the insurgent forces in Pinar del Rio seem letter off, more thoroughly equipped aud disci-? plined than at any previous stage of tho campaign. In support of this assertion statements have lieen gathered from the most reliable sources, showing there are fi.ooo men in the field. In addition to these forces i3 a strong body of insurgents, which seems to have mysteriously disapix-ared from the neighborhood of Havana. The where abouts of this force is causing the Span ish staff considerable anxiety. The friends of the insurgents intU mate that a big surprise is being pre. pared for Captain General Weyler when he tries to return to Ilavauu, On Feb. 1 the insurgents destroyed by dynamite a culvert lietween Taco and liacanagna, Pinar del Rio, and wrecked a train. The culvert was to tally destroyed, and one passenger on the train wa killed. The engineer, two firemen, a captain of the artillery volunteers, Suarez and rive soldiers of the batallion of Asturiaa were seriously wounded ; two of them have since died of the injuries thus received. Advices from Remedios say that Gen eral Maximo Gomez has removed from the district of Santo Spiritus to La Siguauea, which canned rumors to b circulated of a probable conference l-e-tween tho generals and eventually of tke conclusion of peace. Hut those re ports have since been denied from in surgent sources. Rebels do not want a settlement. A number of Spanish generals will return to Spain, which seems to indi cate that they have given up the light. GOING AROUND THE WORLD. The I'leaaant Trip Cleveland Will Take After March 4.

A passenger agent of the Canadian Pacific, now in this city, is authority for the statement that President Cleveland will take a trip around the world immediately after the inauguration of his successor. The president and his party will go to the coast over the Canadian Pacific road, and Division Passenger Agent Sheehy of that line will conduct the party in person. It is the desire of the president to start as soon as jiossible after the inau guration of President-elect McKinley. lie desires to avoid public functions as much as iwssible, ami intends to make the circuit of the globe as a private citizen. Private Secretary Thurber and sev eral members of President Cleveland's cabinet are expected to accompany his excellency. Mrs. Cleveland and the children may accompany the party ; that matter has not been fully decided yet. Washixotos, Feb. 10.
