KRKNS1M HO. fAMRKIA CO., PA., IKIHAV, JiXKr,, is-.?. I'll k Kepuhlican state convention will l.o hetil at Harrishurti, August :V. A imckak in the Heputilican tariff lines urreil, Satunlay, iu the senate when tt(nr mat tins;, burlap and cotton bagging were taken off the dutiable and placed on the free list. Tiik price of beef and mutton is going ill '" ,e effeet of the prospective addi tion to the prolit.-s of the cattle trust nwin out of the tax on hides has only increased their rapacity, which grows by what it feeds on. The more plunder they g't the more they desire. 1!gth the state treasurer and audi tor general of Pennsylvania agree that there is a deficiency in the treasury of over ", (nut. The Republicans pro p'e to cure the deficiency with increas ed taxation but the people want fewer ollices and less salaries. Two jears ago the Republican legisla ture created a iimulier of new oflices and increased the salaries of a number of oil ice holders. This year they are cut ting down the appropriations to schools and other necessary ins'itutions to foot the bill. The lattst word fram Harrisburg, says the Philadelphia .''., is that no economy in expenditures will be attempt ed except the pruning of appropriations for the common schools anil public charities. The children of the state, the lunatics, the lame, halt and blind are selected as the first victims of adminis trative recklessness and incapacity. It is no wonder that the blundering and thieving party which has looted the state treasury is unwilling to amend the election laws so as to give the voters of tiie state a fair chance to inilict proper I'iistigation ! Tmk governor has approved a bill re iiiriug all corKrations to deduct from the wages of aliens a sum sufficient to pay the respective amounts of taxes assessed agaiust them. A bill has also passed the legislature imposing a tax of three cents a day on each unnaturalized adult male, the tax to be deducted from tiie wages by employers. These enact ments will have one uninteuded effect iu putting a premium upon naturaliza tions. In the case of unnaturalized cit izens now under contract with corpora tions or private individuals it is doubt ful if such legislation can lie enforced. The state are forbidden to pass any law impairing the obligation of contracts, l uff rtunately it was net deemed ne cessary by the makers of the federal con stitution to put any bar upon the jtower of the .-tatis to impair the obligation of hospitality. Sknatok Stiskmas and Representative Reese, of this county, have arrived at that stage of their political travels where they now find themselves letween the devil and the deep sea. The jieople of Cambria county are dreadfully in earn est in having the salary of their county treasurer brought down to a sum that will, in some fair degree, be commen surate with tiie services and responsibil-iti.-s of that official, while three or four people who make county treasurers who make senators and make represen taiives are equally interested in hav ing the present exorbitant salary re main as it is or would be well pleased if it could lie increased. If the fake bill for the reduction of the salary of the countv treasurer, fath ered in the senate by Mr. t ineman and in the house by Mr. Reese, had been t-igned by Governor Hastings these pa triots would have been saved a world of trouble. They could have then gone to the i opIe with an uncious grace pecul iarly their own and pointing with pride to the act of assembly reducing the treasurer's salary in Cambria county. sed as the tsecial friends of the peo p'e, while the next elected county treas urer would have gone into ctlice with a cold deck up his sleeve and with a suit in icurt have the ad reducing his sala ry declared unconstitutional and the county to pay the costs. Governor Hastings however blocked the little game. The bill was so clearlv a fake that he had no hesitancy in throwing it orerboard. As it is now late in the session the probabiltiy is there will be nothing done and there may le at least one more good haul out of the treasurer's office .Messrs. Stineman and Reese may have Some trouble explaning to the taxpay ers how the trick was worked. t-'e IiatiT Cannon of ITtah intrrw1nr-H mi May 25 uii amendment to the tariff bill which is likely to make trouble for tli.' Ki publican leaders and which may nreuK flown tne wjoie protective sys tem. The amendment favors the Lubin scheme ;f paying export bounties on farm products. This scheniw is tinw t. ing pushed vigorously, not only by its amiier, uavxi L.utin, lint also by the prangos of many states and by trades unions and ministers. It makes its fight inside the ranks of protection nnd hn already opened more farmers' eyes to ine iouy oi tne system than all of Mie tariff reform work that has been done Senator Cannon told some plain truths When introducing this amendment, He poke in part as follows: It was with great surprise, upon an ex amination of the measure, that I fonud that the great class of our population who have from the beginning not only supitfirted the protective tariff party by their votes, but have supported the pro tective tariff principle by their industry from the beginning of its operation, were in a Jarpe degree excluded from any of its benefits. It is, I say. to sup ply a very patent omission from the measure as it now stands that the amendment is proved and will be ad a le-ateil hero until a vote shall bo had thereon. The bill as it is offered today affords no protection to agricultural staples. There is remaining, I presume, no ad vocate, of tha protective tariff tysteiu w ii will cotitor.il that in this bill" with tl ese inipo-t duties, there is afforded tiny protection or benefit of increased price arising from import duties upon ai:y of those commodities of which we export our surplus, nor are there re maining at tho present time in the school of protection very many men who will contend and none who will prove that the indirect protection afford ed to the farmer by the tariff on man ufactured poods is sufficient comjiensa tion to him for the vast cost entailed upon him iu carrying the protective tariff system upon manufactured goods. It has become apparent to all thought ful observers, and certainly it is known to all who have any direct connection with the agricultural industry of the United States, that the farmer cannot, and the man who reads him well knows that the farmer will not, much longer bear this burden. There are three remedies possible. The second remedy, and one which I, as a believer in protection, would be ready to accept rather than to hold to and vote for an inequitable bill, would be absolute free trade, by which the farmer might buy as cheaply as he is compelled to sell, and that remedy this congress will not seek to enforce. There remains, then, but the third the appli cation of an export bounty which shall in a measure give restitution to the farmer for the higher prices which he is compelled to pay in protected markets. No proposition based upon the decla ration of equal protection to all tho in dustries of the United States is com plete, nor can there be successfully made a contention that it is just, unless it gives to the exporter of agricultural staples from the United States an equiv alent benefit to that given to the manu facturer by the imposition of an import duty. A duty of 25 cents a bushel upon wheat is a delusion and a snare. The farmer of the United States gets no ben efit from it. The imposition of duty upon cotton, if that were attempted, would be of no value to the cotton producer. Tiie imposition of a duty on rye is of no value to the farmer of the United States. Every other protected industry has a direct benefit from this tariff, because where we do not produce in the United States sufficient for our own consump tion ami a quautity considerable in ex tent for export the import duty serves as a means whereby the local producer can enhance tho price to the lqcal con sumer. The immediate benefit to the farmer derived from the treasury of the United States would not be all. For this com paratively small expenditure to him lie would receive for these staples more than $225,000,000 in higher prices than he now receives. It is true that this would increase tho price of breadstuff's to the consumers in the cities, but un der the declaration made here today that with higher juices the people will be more able to buy we will have a larger consumption of wheat and wheat flour and other agricultural staples in the cities of the country than we have now at the low prices. Mr. Butler Mr. President, the sena tor from Utah said he was in favor of about 1 13,000,000 export duty on w heat at 10 cents a bushel. If we pay au ex port bounty of 10 cents a bushel, that will raise the price of every bushel of wheat, whether exported or consumed at home, that much, will it not? .Mr. Camion Certainly it will. Mr. Butler Then, for an investment of 113,000,000, which the government would payout in the shape of au export bounty, the wheat farmers of the coun try would get their protection of .?'i0, OUO.OOO or $70, 000,000, would they not? - Mr. Cannon They would, if there be any truth in the protective principle. Mr. Butler That would be a very good investment. Mr. Cannon It would be a very good investment if it were to be made iu be half of any manufacturing industry or auy trust iu the United States, but any thing in behalf of the farmer is looked upon with scorn ami is considered a doubtful iareptweut by the legislature of the United States. In addition, Mr. President, it is a very pexir argument, when vou have N-en robbing some man for years and he asks you for justice, to say that you ironist; ij continue to rcD mm ot more and say that you do not know whe re you are going to get the money with which to re'Store that which you have unrighteously taken. It is the very first duty of the congress of the United States to provide a bill which shall not only be honest in its present applica tion, but which shall pay back semie portion of that which has be-en taken Irom the pockets of the toile rs of this laud. I have talked with the famiers in 20 states of the Union since last fall, and I firmly I lieve that this tariff will no longe r endure than until the farme rs of the Lnited State s can have a chane-e to revise it at the polls, if you do not give to them some portion of its bene-fits. The fanner id betiding beneath a bur den which he cannot carry longer. He has been the backbone eif the? integrity or the L lilted State-s, but there come-s in the place of the fre-e unit independent farmer of this country a race of tenant ry to reap servile ly where he sowe-d nobly, men who receive their opinious from others instead of giving their own inde pendent voie e at the jolls and iu all their ekrlaratioiis to their fellow men. The senate of the United States can afford to be absolutely just. I believe the amendment should be adopted. Mr. Chandler May I ask the senator from Utah a question? Mr. Cannon Certainly. Mr. Chandler I heard the senator speak of robbe ry a little while ago with refre-nce to the tariff. Does the senator mean that the farmer has been robbed all these years by the tariff? Is that tho senator's argument? Mr. Cannon Yes, sir, decidedly. Mr. Chandler When did the senator first think that the American tariff sys tem was a roLbery of the fanner? Mr. Cannon Just so soon us the sen ator gave sufficient attention to the sub ject to understand the truth of it. I ad vocated Re publican tariffs as earnestly and as faithfully in my humble way as the senator from New Hampshire, and I believed exae tly what I taught. But I am not dispose! any longer to advocate a system by which one portion of the population is taxed for the benefit of another jiortiou of the population. I think that it is unfair to cherish only one class, and that the class which has already the most power of self protec tion. If the senator from New Hamp shire will go across the plains of Kansas, as I have pom, and across the plains of Nebraska, I believe in him sufficiently to think he will come back and say that this bill is robbery of the American farmer. I have stated that I am in favor of a ' prote-ctive tariff system. I stated that in the guilelessness of my soul, leing a Republican, I went out and advocated the Republican idea of a protective tar iff. I never was brought quite so close to responsibility concerning it Ufore as I am today. Heretofore I have discussed it on the stump, advocating it in gener al terms, but as soon as I am couf route d with responsibility which obliges me to look more closely into its amplication to all the people I am simply dischareiiur my duty when I setk to amend this measure so that it ahall be honest to all. Washington Letter. Wishing!. m, June 1. 1SH7 Mr. McKinley is a graduate of the Ohio school of politics, and few slii'ker indi v:.du ds hold diplomas from that source. His trotting out of that new treaty for the annexation of Hawaii at this time is a very slick a'tenipt to take atlvantage of be popularity of the idea of auuexing Hawaii to distract public attution from his failure t'jannouoce hisOuban policy, in accordance with promises made in his behalf in congress II 1 1 the people not been clamoring for action towards Cuba it is not likely that the Ha.vaiin treaty would have been hearel from be fore next winter, notwithstanding the declaration of some of Mr. McKinley's frienils that it was brought forward to assist the senators to intelligently dispose of the tariff. Although it is well known that many of tne I emocratie senators favor the ul timate annexation of Hawaii very few of them have committed themselves on this new treaty. It is too important ft matter to be tlecideel on the ppur of the moment, and it will not be surprising should the Democrats oppose any at tempt to railroad the treaty through the senate at the present session. Nothing w ill be lost by allowing the treaty to go over to the regular session of congress. Already the question is lieing askeel, why do so much for Hawaii, several thous and miles away, and nothing for Cuba, which is suffering right at our doors, so to speak. There is some talk about de laying action on the Hawaiian treaty until Mr. McKinley agrees to do some thing for Cuba, which mtny think must also ultimately come under the control of the U. S. in some form or other. Some Democratic senators favor holil ing a caucus to elecide just what attitude they shall take towards the Hawaiian treaty, but nothing definite has yet ieen determined upon. .senator Tillman has proposed an amemlment to the tariff bill that woulil do more than all the recent attempts to restrict immigration. It provides for a head tax of $100 on each immigrant and makes it a misdemeanor for any alien who does not intend to lwcome an American citizen and to remain such to enter the U. S, for the purjtose of en gaging an any mechanical trade or man ual labor. There is a provision that the head tax shall cease to be levieel as soon as the I. S. adopts the free coinage of silver. Fearing that the antitrust tariff amendment offered by Senator Petti grew might le adopted on a direct vote Senator Allison, who is in charge of the tariff bill tluring the absence of Senator Aldrich, resorted to a little parliament ary trick to kill it, and succeeded. He moved that it be laid on the table anil the motion was carried by a vote of 35 to o'2. Had Senators Morgan and Pet tus, the only Democrats who voted for the motion," voted against it, it would have been defeated by a vote of 31 to R'J and the anti-trust amendment would have been added to the tariff bill. It is but fair to state that Senators Morgan and Pettus stated their opposition to the amendment to be that it would create more and worse trusts than it would in jure existing trusts. Senator Vest gave Senator Allison sev eral blows straight from the shoulder in a few remarks dissecting the figures set forth by Mr. Allison in place of those submitted by Mr. Aldrich when the change was made in the sugar schedule. Mr. Vest believes that each sugar sched ule has been a little letter for the sugar trust than the one it succeedeel, not withstanding the public howl against favoriug this colossal monopoly, and he presented figures to back his belief. A -cording to his figures, the present tariff gives a protection on VG-degree sugar of 37 cents er hundred pounds; the Ding ley schedule 41cents; the Aldrich sched ule 4t" cents, and the caucus schedule, afterwards adopted by the senate, 47 cents. Thus it is that the Republican senators who opposeel the Wilson bill because they said it gave the sugar trust too much protection have put them selves on record in favor of giving the trust exactly ten cents a hundred pounds more ttian the ilson tariff bill gave it M Six Tliou-iantl killed. rimia, June i:. it is announced to day that ovet o,0o0 lives have Ieen lost in the earthquake disturbances which nave receutly visited the Providence of Assam.

Gov't Report ABSOLUTELY Carp le Much fur an F.agle. Havre-de-t'race, Md., June 19 A j large bald eagle was captured on the Sus- J quehanna flats yesterday under rather, novel circumstances by Jesse I oplar. He not only got the eagle, but along with it a 20-pound CJerman ca-p, which assisted iu the capture of the big bird. While Bailing across the flats Poplar noticed the eagle pitch out of the air and strike something in the water, but wheo attempting to rise with hia prey he was instead pulled into the water. After watching the maneuvers of the bird a moment it waa evident to Poplar that it could uot free itself, as several times he had been taken entirely under the water. Poplar hurried to the scene and found the bird had fastened his tal ons into a huge German carp. But little trouble was had in taking the bird and fish into the Ioat by means of a large scoop net, the bird being near ly exhausted from his ducking. The eagle has fully recovered, and is a line Secimen. He is caged in a large box and seems to take his imprisonment philosophically, eating tresh fish with a good appetite.
