In his annual report to the State De
partment Consul General Bittlnger, at
Montreal, says that Canada Is about to
make an important change in her postage
rates. On the 25th of next month there
will be three rates of postage on letters,
viz: 2 cents for Great Britain and her col
onies; 3 cents for Canada and the United
States, and Z cents for foreign countries.
If the experiment proves satisfactory
the postmaster general, it is understood,
will then reduce letter postage for Cana
da and to the United States to 2 cents.
After January 1 next the newspaper rate
will be a quarter of a cent a pound, but
after July 1 this will be increased, to half
a cent a pound.

Bitter Arraignment of the Jn
ALLEGED TO BE PARTISAN
The President Appointed Nine Re
publicans, Three From Ohio.
Assr-rt Tlml tlio lltnly Wn Packed.
Witrkiii;; l'ijIe I.On- Confidence.
Conferees Jln lut cstiasH1.
According to opinions cxpresfed by
many people, and it is asserted that they
are indorsed by lawyers wao have ex
amined the matter. President McKinley
has not adhered to the spirit of an act
of Congress, which became law during
the latent session of that body. It is even
said that his action in Ignoring the ac
cented intent and meaning of the act may
be the occasion of dissension In the ensu
The- cause of the trouble is the act cre
ating the Industrial Commission, which
is now meeting In this city. The act
ckvirly stales that the Commission shall
be non-parii&an and "shall fairly repre
sent the different industries and employ
ments." These men were to be selected
from all partiex and from the various
sections of the country, according to the
act, and herein has the President violat
ed the law.
His appointments have been all Repub
licans, nine of thtjm. and jiotwithstaud
ing the fact that the- act v.s construct
ed so that labor might have representa
tion, only one man on the whole Coin
mission represents wage workers, and
this man is n lieutenant of Mark Hanna.
Another complaint is that the "West is not
represented. Not one of the McKinley
appointees -comes from a State west of
the Mississippi, and, while the Commis
sioners -were to be widely scattered, the
President has appointed no less than
three from one State, Ohio.
The nine appointees are as follows: S.
X. D. North. Massachusetts, protective
tariff expert; M. D. Katehfor.l, Ohio,
president Mine Workers and Hanna
agent. A. J. Harris, Ohio, ex-lieutenant
governor of Ohio; J. L. Kennedy, Ohio,
correspondent and politician; E. A.
Smytlie, South Carolina, cotton mill own
er; J. M. Farquhar. New York, ex-Republican
congressman; T. W. Phillips. Penn
sylvania, oil producer;" A. S. Harris,
North Carolina, mine owner; Eugene
Conger. Michigan, politician.
These appointees, with live congress
men and live senators, are supposed to
represent the wage workers of the coun
try, but the wage workers cannot see
it in this light, and they are appealing
to their representatives to have matters
changed so that they may have some
repr sentation on their own commission.
The cause of the drafting of the bill
for the Commission originally was the
fact that no wage workers are ever elect
ed to Congress, therefore, the working
class was fUHirely without representation
by their -own people. The bill was to
give labor a representative commission
which would consider and recommend
legislation to meet the problems present
ed by labor, agriculture and capital, each
of these three being equally represented.
After the bill had passed the House by a
unanimous vote. Senator Aldrich amend
ed it to give capital, or the employing
class, a majority vote and to have capital
represented by five congressmen and five
These were to be appointed by the
Speaker and Vice President, while labor's
representation was to consist of nine
members, who were to be appointed by
The bill was agreed to in this form and
in spite of the protests of railroads and
other corporations it also passed the
Senate by a -'unanimous vote. This was
the only labor bill which was agreed
upon and had the support of every labor
union In the country.
It is now claimed that the corporations,
seeing the danger of such a commission,
if truly representative, fortified their inter
ests by seeing that the commission was
packed and that none but men hai'ing
Haana's O. IC were appointed. Thus, it
Is claimed, has the President deprived
labor of representation by violating the
letter and spirit of the act.
A precedent was set for the President
by the Vice President and Speaker Reed,
who appointed their share of the com
mission very impartially. But when the
President was given opportunity to ap
point the nine labor representatives he
so far forgot himself as to make these
all Republicans and to give labor only
one representative, Ratchford, and he a
safe Hanna man. Not one of the other
eight has any interest whatever with
labor and seven of them represent the
The plan of the labor men and of many
of the congressmen and senators is to
force the President to vacate at least one
half the positions In the commission
filled by partisan Republicans and mem
bers of the employing class and give labor
a ratio of representation accordlhg to
the provisions of the act.
Many of the Western congressmen and
senators are indignant that the- West
should be ignored by McKinley and state
that they will vote against the confirma
tion of every one of his appointees. The
law has been clearly violated by the
President and the friends of the commis
sion bill think that a very little com
plaint will quickly cause him to recon
sider his act and clear himself In the
eyes of the laboring people of the coun
try. Allan MeNatiprliton Ak.hIiik.

INCREASE DURING liAST lit4 U
Annual Report of Colonel Aiiimvortli
Submitted to the Secretary
During the fiscal year ended June SO,
1S3S, the number of cases received and
disposed of is as follows: From the Pen
sion Office, 121,707: from the auditor for
the JVar Department, 1S,C02; remuster
cases, 0,390; desertion cases, 5038; all oth
er cases, miscellaneous, 321S9; total 19'.,
.191; on hand June 30, 1S93, none.
. This shows a net Increase of 43 1S3,
more than 29 per cent, in the number of
cases received and disposed of.
There was a large increase duiing the
lutt fiscal year in the number of remuster
The 5,03j desertion cases mentioned in
the statistical tabic include only those
briefed and recorded as applications for
removal of the charge of desertion. They
do not include, the cases in which the
charge of desertion was incidentally en
countered and considered under the law
without u formal application therefor.
During the last fiscal year, the latter
class of cases numbered 7..S97, making a
total of 12,935 cases.
The work of reproducing the individu
al military and medical records of the
officers and enlisted men of the volun
teer forces by the index-record card .sys
tem has been minutely described. The
great mass of the volunteer records of all
wars in which the country has been en
gaged (except those of the recent war
with Spain, which have not yet been fil
ed in this office), have been carded. The
records, however, are of great impor
tance, and it is essential that those con
taining evidence of personal military
service shall be included In the general
system of index-record cards. This Is es
pecially the case with regard to service,
in the Revolutionary War, the only evi
dence of service In that war belli?, In
many instances, the personal mention
found in the miscellaneous and fragmen
tary records now in process of examina
tion and reproduction.
The index-r.c rd card work for th2 fiscil
year included the preparation of 657.G33
military cards (179.S11 of this number were
a consolidation of 2,SfS,7Sl cards made fiom
monthly returns) and 9.0G7 medical cards,
making, with the number prepared in pri
or years, a total of 40,215,911 of the for
mer and C.970.C63 of the latter class, aggre
gating -17,1S6,577 index-record cards prepar
ed up to and including June 30, 1S3S.
One object of the transfer of the records
of the Revolutionary War and the war of
1812 to the War Department was that they
should be "prepared for publication."
Congress will doubtless make the neces
sary appropriation for the publication of
these records at the proper time, but it
is clearly not advisable to undertake
the publication of any portion of them,
especially ofthose relating to the individ
ual histories of officers and enlisted men,
until the compilation shall have been com
pleted and every available source of in
formation shall have been exhausted.
It is due to the employes of the ollice
to state that the prompt and satisfactory
dispatch of the business of the office is
the natural result of the commendable
industry, faithfulness and zeal which they
display in the performance of their re

Wilkesbarre, Ta., Nov. 17. The big fire
in the Ravine mine at Pittston has been
extinguished at last. The fire started in
an explosion six weeks ago, and since an
army of men -have been fighting the
' Beauty and Power."
The secret of a woman's
power is in her complete
"womanliness, both phys
ical ana mental. This
does not mean per
fection ot outline
of features. It
does not mean
wit, nor talents
tractiveness that comes
tion and the
bright, happy cheerfulness of disposition
which only complete health can insure.
A woman with a bright eye, clear com
plexion, mantling color in the cheeks and
buoyant -elastic step and manner has a
natural attractiveness that no artificial
agency can counterfeit.
A woman who is afflicted with the morti
fying misfortune of a dull, sallow, pimply
complexionor that listless movement and
attitude which provokes only disgust and
revulsion in the opposite sex, ought to avail
herself of the purifying, invigorating power
of Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery,
which makes a strong, healthy stomach
and digestive organism ; purifies the blood
and imparts a Tiatural stimulus to the ex:
cretory functions ; insures .healthy weight
clear skin, bright eyes and the animated
manner and bearing of perfect health.
A lady-living in "West Virginia, Miss Anna
Callow, of Kyger, Roane Co.. writes : " It is
with pleasure 1 write you After using a few
bottles of Dr. Pierce's 'Favorite Prescription
and 'Golden Medical Discovery,' and I think
them valuable medicines for female troubles
and weaknesses. I could hardly go about my
work I had such inward weakness and constant
inisenr In the womb. It worried me so that I
would give out in walking a short distance. I
had a bad cough and my lungs hurt me all the
time. I got very thin, my complexion was bad,
and my eyes would get so heavy in the evening
they seemed stiff in the lids. I could hardly
move them. Many persons were alarmed about
me, I looked so bad and had such a cough ; they
were afraid T would go into consumption. I
felt so badly every day that I had no life about
me. I used only five bottles in all. I shall ever
epcafc in praise of your grand medicines. They
are blessings to suffering females."
Another good thing to have in the "house

They cure biliousness and constipation

This club was formed three years ago,
with Parker Mann as Its president. Its
exhibitions proved from the outset very
popular with Washington people, and
each recurring one 'has been looked for
ward to with increased Interest. In fact,
even more enthusiasm has been awaken
ed in water color pictures than has been
maintained by oil exhibits.
The jury of the club, composed of th'e
board of managers, have received an un
usually large number of applications
from both artists and amateurs for space
in the exhibit. The number- that can be
received is necessarily limited on account
of the wall space. The exhibit will con
sist of about two hundred pictures, and
is declared by artists who have the privi
lege of seeing the collection to be the
best, throughout, of all previous exhibits
of this class of art.
There is an absence of very large wa
ter colors, but the standard is high. A
private view of the exhibition will be
given on Saturday to the profession, press
and people known to be particularly in
terested In art.
The resignation of President Mann was
accepted by the club several months ago
when ho left on his trip abroad, and
James Henry Moser, chairman of the
board of managers, was elected to fill
