When the man uf:ii (ori.-s close, and the work is ione ;n Europe, as under present rule", the M orkingiiian goes hungry and ragged, it matters not lio' cheap tliitigs are in the market. These are ooitom facts. Tin: llcpuhlicans of the Kentucky legislature have nominated Congress man 11 (inter for United States Senator. It is telcgraph.-d that Senator "Joe" llhiekltuni has aliandoncd all hope of re-election. His frietidsstill hojie, how ever, tiiat something may turn up to pre vent Mr. Hunter's election. Th k De mocratic National Committee Ins fixed upon Chicago as the place1, and July 7th as the time, for holding the Democratic National Convention. The free coinage advocates wanted St. Louis a the place, and the Cleveland ites str igzled for New York. Finally Chicago was agreed upon as a compro mise. At the time of his death Stephen C.irard left S2,000,OUU to the college which he established. Since that time the property, which was in coal lands and various holdings in real eftate, ha. inereased to nearly 15,m,ii0. The revenues from this vast estate last year were over $1,M),wi. Tm: Republican caucus of the Utah legislature has nominated Frank J. Cannon, a son ofCeorge I. Cannon, a. pillar of the Mormon church, and Arthur Ilrown, a Gentile, for United Stales Senators, and they will doubt less lie elected on tiic day fixed for tak ing the ballot. Roth are sturdy Re publicans and presumably free coinage ad voca'es. Thk Iowa delegation in Congress has formally launched Senator Alli son's Presidential liooiu with the sanc tion of Mr. Allison himself. A com mittee of three Representatives, 1). 11. Henderson and Hepburn, and Senator Icar, was selected to take charge of Mr. Allison's interests in Washington. The solid delegation in Congress, the State ItepuMieati Committee and the R pul.licaiis of the en! ire State are ab solutely unanimous it: his support. At thk municipal Republican pri mary flection in Philadelphia, last week, the tight was bitter and fiercely (-untested, and the Combine brought to a Dtaiid-still. There were over so.uiO votes Milled, and out of that nuiiilicr the Combine sccued only .'U.tKio. The iuay, or anti-combine people, carried three out of the five delegates to the National convention, and forty out of seventy delegates to the State conven tion. The Comb-tie, however, have apparently secured a majority of the city councils, which is ivmarkab'e, if true, considering the immense majority f ihe popular vote against it. Mb.

For more than thirty years previous to the in-coming of this ad ministration these not have done duty s our priueipad currency without dis aster or the loss of a single dolh.r; but now this young country lawyer, hith erto unknown to fortuue and to fame, take it upon himself to cry down a ystem endorsed by such finam-iersas Salmon I. Che and John Sherman, snd known to Uie whole country as Kife, sound and satisfactory, U-cause iiaseI upon the credit cf the United Hutes. According to Mr. Kckles, who merely mouths the opinion, or. rather, the desires of his chief, the deficiency in the revenues is brought aliout by this legal ten-ler money, and not by reason f insuflieieut tariff duties, and, there fore, this kind of curre-m-v should lie withdrawn from cireutaliou. AVe do ik think that this war upou tin cur rency will meet with success, and it strikes wuii p.itical dxlge to raise a t-ampaiga bce to distract attention from the cwwitiug necessity of the r tuulrv to secure i!Meii-d revenue.

Kobinson, an avowed candidate f.r Mr. Cameron's seat In tne i mien States Senate, which is to be filled by the Legislature next year, has sent tne following letter, under date of January 13, to Senator Quay, chairman of the Re publican State committee, at St. Lucie, Fla.: M. , . "As you are aware, I am a candidate for the United States Senate, to which honor able station there are several distin guished Republicans aspiring. It seems to me, in view of this fact, and to save the State committee frani any criticism whatsoever as to partiality or bias toward any of the other candidate, that it would I well Tor the State chairman to wiKCkt Ui the various chairmen of the Republi can County oimmiitecs in the Slate the advisability of printing the names of all the candidates for the United States Sen ate so far as known, upon a separate part of the ticket to be voted for at the coming primaries, so that there may be some indication as to the views of the electors regarding their choice for this important position. As a member of the sub-committee of the Executive commit tee uiou the matter of the rules for the government of the Republican party iu the State of Pennsylvania, I am some what familiar with the various rules now in force in the several counties of the Commonwealth. I do not think there is anything in the rules of any county to prevent this suggestion from tiemffaaopi ed. While it would not le mandatory, it would be in the nature declaratory, and would oresent a fair, free and open method of determining, to a very large vtmit the desires of the zreat Imdy of Republicans in the Commonwealth as to the succession to this high and uonoraiue office so long and ably filled by the Hon. J. I tonal d Cameron, who declines to lie considered further in connection with the place, I might suggest, iu view of the fact that there is no rule governing the subject in the State rules now in force, that it would be wholly within the prov ince of the State chairman, and not an unwise or improper act, for the various candidates for the United States Senate to signify their candidacy to him, and that the chairman fix a reasonable fee to cover the expenses of the printing and notices necessary in connection with the vote upon the subject, so that au authen tic list of candidates could le furnished to the various county chairmen in due time for the primary elections for select ing the memliers of the tJeneral Assem bly, who will lie called upon to elect a colleague to yourself." Vomited A Big Fish. KenANTOx, Pa., Jan. IS. A live fish, perfc-tly formed, which was seven inches long and over an inch thick, was vom ited by Mrs. John Davis on Thursday night. She resides on Itriek avenue, in the Providence sectiou of this city. She has a husband and five children. They came here from Wales last year. For ten years Mrs. Davis has been suffering from stomach ailments, which at times were most acute. The physi cians were puzzled as to what troubled her. ne of them, however, ventured the possibility of some live thing having got ten into her stomach. Four months ago her father, who has lived in Scranton eight years, urged his daughter and family to eoine here, hoping she would le Ivcnetited by climatic changes. There was no improvement noticed, and six weeks ago it became impossible for Mrs. Davis to eat solid food. Since, that time wine and nnlK nave lieen ner omy nourishment. Three weeks ago Dr. Wil liam i. ;ulton was called to attend Mrs. Davis, who was then obliged to take to her lied. Thursday evening an unus ually severe and painful sickness sud denly came upon her. and in alarm.the nearest physician. Dr. W. i. Donne, was summoned. The woman's husliand, meanwhile, gave her brandy and tea. Violent vomiting followed, when a fish, which fell on the floor, caused great amazement to the persons iu the room. Mrs. Davis was almost strangled, but she wept for joy when she knew the cause of years of misery was removed. To-night she is much improved in spir its and health, and focis she will soon regain perfect health. She lielieves she must hve swallowed the fish when it was quite small in drinking from a spring at her home, in Swansea. The fih has been put in ah-ohol, and was viewed to-day J3 hundreds of jieople. Gtn. Harrison Admit it. Xkw York, Jan. 17. At the Fifth Avenue hotel to-night ex-President Har rison formally announced his engage ment to Mrs. DiiniiKK-k, niece of his late wife. There was a crowd of newspaper monalioutthe hotel at 9 o'clock, when Col. Tibbetls, firm Harrison's private secretary, handed them the following: "(en. Uurrisen authorizes the au-nouiu-emciit that he find Mrs. Dimuiock are engaged to lie manic!, pud thut tiie inarricge will not take place until after Lnt." Col. Tibl-ctt refused to further uiscm the announcement, and although the ii Pitsu'tiit v-es up Mails iu his r in at the time, he denied hiuielf to ail news paper men. Col. Tibbetts said that tlen llarrisou would remain in the city until a.Vr Sunday, v Lin he would go to In dlau: 1'ilis snd from there to Wash ington. Mis. Diir.inei-kV uill iiumc is Caroline Lord Dimuiock. She is (he daughter i f the l ite Mis. Lord, the eldest sister of ten. Hani -n"s first wife". She is the widow of u naval utt'ii-cr. After her bus tiand's de.jii si.' lived for some time, with her mother iu j'ixtshurg. Mrs. I'd (lied while 4cii. ti-:;.-ison was President. Mr. Harrison thereupon sent for her favorite niece and iian.eiike to coin3 t- the White House, and made the young widow her private secretary. Diring Mrs. Harrison's illness Uith ut the Adirondack cottage and iu the White H uise, Mrs. Dim mock was her faithful a:id devoted nurse. Itis Parrot Wu Reformed. Xtw York, Jan. James J. Brown, of Wiiiiamsburgh, got a green parrot a few years ago which had a reputation for prol.-.nity. He took it to his home and tried to make a better bird of it. His house is close to the Catholic church of SL Vincent de Patit, of which Rev. Martin Carroll is the pastor. Mr. Brown, after a w hile, succeeded in reforming the moral of the bird. In good weather its cage was bung out of a lutck w indow, where it bad vcry opportunity of study ing the masse said iu the church. I-at suminerth-jparr.it began to annoy the priest and his associates by imitating the chsnting of the mass. It learned to utter several I -a! in phrases, and recently worshipers noti-ed it. Mr. Brown was rcqne&cd by nome of the church people to get rid of the bird. He refused to do this but to-day. instead of hanging the cage outside the luu-k window, as had lieen the custom, he kept the bird in his house. He said ho was not aware that the parrot had mastered the I-a!iu tongue, but pleased with the thoroughness of its rertiuitioii. A Girl Xarui Alive. Ci.i:vF.r.xi, O., Jan. 17.

During the sitting of the Superior Court in Philadelphia the appeal oi (ieorge I Ioberneck front the appeal of j the Juarter Sessions Court of Indiana county, though it belonged to the Pitts burg district, was given a special bearing, and after argument the Court left the matter in the hands of Judge McCarthy to prepare its decision. The Court then adjourned to meet on the first Monday of the present month in Scranton, and the decision of the case was there handed down on Tuesday. Doberneck had applied for the license of a brewery and had lieen refused. He thercuMin appealed to the Superior Court and that Court has just reversed the Quarter Sessions of Indiana county. In doing so Judge Mc 'arthy said : "It is well settled that the discretion vested in the Court of Quarter Sessions under the a.-t of June !, I!-!, to grnnt or refuse licenses for the sale of vinous and spirituous malt or brewed liquors by wholesale will not justify the arbitrary grant or refusal of such licenses, but that it is a judicial discretion to bo exercised for legal reasons and in a judicial man ner. There must lie a judicial hearing and if the license is refused the refusal must be for a legal reason. Where these two points appear the Appellate Court will not discuss the correctness of tho re sult reached by tho court lielow, but if there has not lieeu a judicial hearing or if the reasons assigned for refusal are not legal and valid the judgement will lie re versed. It soems reasonable that the Court should not have the same kind and extent of discretion in all kinds of licen ses and that tho discretion should be greatest in the cases of hotels and res' taurants, wlnise principal trade is to sell liquor by the drink to the consumer and least in those of brewers and distillers. who are manufacturers and farthest re moved from the consumer. "In the present case it appears from the record thut there was a judicial hear ing. The license was refused, and tho reasons therefor are set out in an order of the Court. "The first reason expressed is that the place to lie licensed is not .nccessary for public accommodation. This is not a lecal and valid reason. Tho vivo of Mark tiemas" appeal is directly in point upon this ouestion. There the action of the Court of Quarter Sessions in refusing a license for a distillery under the act o JuneS, IS'!, 'as unnecessary for the ac commodation of the public was reversed and pr.icedetido awarded on the ground thai the proviso of tho fourth sect ion of the act expressly ena ts that the neces sity for the accommodation of the public sh::ll not apply to the case of a brewer or distiller, and that th? sixth section of the ai-t which would seem to give a discre tion to the Court to refuse licenses w here evcr the same are not necessary for tho accommodation of the public in general "Tho second reason assigned bv the court Is-lo-.v for the refusal of the license is liecause applicant 'is not a citieu of the Imrough of Indiana, where the brew ery is located.' "The only provisions of the act of June 9, l3il, having relation to citizenship or residence are the first and third clauses of section 4, which require the petition to contain the name present address of ap plicant and how long ho has there resid ed and the place of birth of said appli cant, and if naturalized. These pro visions do not i r scribe that the appli cant shall lie a citizen or resident of any particular locality, nor is there any other enactment which so prescribes, and the reason thus assigned for the refusal of the license is l;ecause it is well known to the court judicially that in the conduct of the brewery heretofore, w hen the owner who yet owns it had a li-ense, the license law were violated and he was convicted there for, and the manner in which the brew ery was conducU-1 was the cause of jrreat disorder and confusion in the town. appears that in this reason the court re fers to the conviction of Frank M. iMlier neck, which o-etirred some eight years airo. We are unable to see that the fact that Frank M. iKiberncck lieing a eensee was guilty of infractions of the law eight years ago affords any ground for the inference that George I- lfcilier- neck, another man, if made, a licensee, would be guilty of infractions of the law at the present time. Such a proposition is neither good law nor sound logic, and the reason thus assigned is neither legsil nor valid. "We are of opinion, therefore, that none of the reasons assigned for the re fusal of this license arc legal and vali under the statute. Judgment reversed and prm-edendo awarded."' Got Their Mency at Last. Ei.iz.uiKTir, N. J., Jan. 17. A decision was handed down to-!ay by Vice Chan eel lor Emory by which five young men will hnvc divided equally among them alumt sum in cah. The case has bee :n tne courts f.r nearly ) vears. On August 7, lk7ii, William Casliman Thomas Fox, RoN-rt Deviue, Charles Fox and William Crawford, then boys, were naming mong the banks of the Kli-ilielh River when Crawford picked up an old stocking full of something, Craw ford liegan to swing the slocking as a plaything.

Hampton, w ho resides near Taylorsville, has been deprived of his pension in a pe culiar manner. He has lieen drawing ?17 M a month for a long time. Some time ago had a disagreement with his wife. Mr. Hampton secured a divorce, and his w ife went West. Some weeks ago she wrote to her former husliand that unless he sent her f-V) at once she would see that his pension was stopped. Mr. Hampton refused the request, and thought the threat idle. The woman put herself in communication w ith a special pension examiner, and tiie result was that Mr. Hampton was re-rated, reducing his pen sion from 8i7 .Vi Ut 1J a month, the re duction to antedate to the time of origin al issue. Hampton has already drawn ? 1,4 17 more than he is entitled to, and in oonsecpi.enco the Pension Department refuses to allow him ,to Ji!e his voucher again until tho year l'jov, by width time tho amount alleged to have leofl'oyey.-. drawn will lie offset or covered back into the Treasury of the United States.

Tho men making this statement will not permit their names to lie used. Tho statement has lieen made to their colleagues on tho committee by two or three of the com mitteemen who are friendly to Mr. Cleve land and have talked with him on the subject that Mr. Cleveland voluntarily announced to them that he would not run for a third term and authorized them to let the committee understand this. Mr. Cleveland is quoted assaying that he does not feet called upon to make an announcement in the newspapers, but would liko his friends on the national committee to know his position. These confidants of Mr. Cleveland go further and say that if anything should occur to warrant his doing so, Mr. Cleveland will at the proper time make a formal announcement, taking strong grounds agaiust a third term. Tho Democratic national convention will lie held at Chicago on July 7. Such was the decision reached on the twenty ninth ballot by the naiion.il committee after a spirited contest in which Chicago won by a bare majority with SL Louis only two votes liehind. What Farm Hands Earn. Secretary Edge's annual report of the department of agriculture deals with the work of the re-organized department and outlines what is proposed to lio done this year by each of the bureaus. Especial attention is directed to the efforts to stamp out the traffic in oleomargarine and adulterated food products. Tho report is voluminous and gives much valuable information. The av erage salaries paid farm hands, employ ed for the year by the month and biarj- cd by the employer, is fliC.t, while, w hen the hand boards himself, he re ceives Jl!.01. During harvest lime lie receives ?l.o7 by the first plan and 2.0. by the latter. The employer estimates th'il it costs 34 cents a (lav to board tho hand, w hile the hand estimates that it costs him about '21 cents a day to Ixiard himself. The difference of NS cents a week is made up by tho hired help doing more work for his employer, liecaiibO he is mere to lo mo ciiorcs when ins em ployer Ixiards him. In order that tho department might know just where adulterations might be expected, and tho extent to w hich they are practiced. Secretary Edge nr. tiered the selection of a large nuui!cr of articles of food and food products iu various parts of the Kt;;te, and these samples were sent ti the chemists of the department for examination, analysis and report. The result of this action thus far proves that such adulterations sre largely confined to the substitution of lower grade articles for the pio ptie of enabling mauufa.-turers and dealers to compete with other low grade goods. The cases in which materials injurons to health are used as adulterants aro rare, and, except iu tho case of the use of copper for coloring pickles, might possibly be attributed to accident rather than design. The otticial reporters of tho depart ment have been utilized for tho collec tion of a large amount of data relating to the prices of different kinds of farm live stock, and sundry other items of interest to the general farmer. It is proposed, during the coming year, t-i stil further utilize this branch of the department iu obtaining regular rejHirts as to the acreage, condition and yield of the leading farm cros and the con dition of live stock in each county in the state. Lively as a Cricket Alt hough in the first instance as slug gish as a tortoise, the kidneys become as lively as a cricket w hen a healthful im pulse is given to them with Hosteller's Stomach Bitters, a promoter of activity in these organs which counteracts a ten dency to their lethargy and disease. In action of the kidneys, it should be re memliercd, is the first stage of those dan gerous renal maladies against which the resource! of medical science are too often exhausted in vain. Peril is forestalled by the Bitters, which averts Bright's dis ease, diaiietes, dropsy, gravel and the troubles arising from a weak bladder. Equally efficacious is it in checking and eradicating malarial, bilious and nerv ous ailments, dyspepsia, constipation and rheumatism. Appetite and sleep are im proved and convalescence hastened by its beneficent action. Either when health is slightly or seriously impaired, the value of this restorative and preven tive medicine is speedily made manifest. Horrors of Filled Cheese. Agent F. N. Moore, of the State Food and Dairy commission, has about con cluded his investigations into the extent to w hich adulterated, or filled, cheese has lieen sold in Pittsburg. Mr. Moore i-ays nothing but eternal vigilance will prevent the filled product from driving the pure cheese from the market. He said filled cheese was a fraud f.-oui a hy gienic and financial standpoint and a menace to public health. The filled cheese manufacturer subjects the cheese to a process which extracts from it but ter fat. its most valuable and costly in gredient. Continuing, Agent Moore said: A full cream cheese, weighing 4."i pounds and requiring )Hiun'tsofmilk, should contain bi pounds of butter, and the maker or tilled cheese extracts al most four-tifths cf this butter fat, the most nutritious part .f milk, and substi tutes foreign fats, the cheapest and most iujiiiiotis, of course. Cottonseed oil is ustd, and that is not fit for food. The butter f;;t taken out is sold ami m-ts tho ruunu failures about ji-W for each 4.V p. u nd 1-h.cepe, and in is place is put cith er ncutrai 'aid or coUonseed oil. The forimir uoits 1 1 pound, or Si ccnU for the choose, and tho iatu- 3 cents a pound, or 3(1 cents for the i lioiwe. T!w full cream cheese Is worth at the factory Scents a pound, or l.0, and the manu facturer takes out almost of this, making the filled product, selling in the guise of pure cheese, a monstrous swin dle. The law is very clear in regard to this, and lsith the swindling feature and the injuriousness of the adulteration are good grounds for prosecution. Roth neutral lard and the cottonseed oil are unfit for food, and the latter particularly vicious. Mr. Moore is at present giving atten tion to the manner in which adulterated and deleterious foods for infants are sold as pure, harmless and nourishing. He ha received letters from women asking him to use his good offn-es to protect the innocent laby from frauds, which cause distress and morbid appetites in after life. Mr. Moore has also lieen informed by physicians, that much ofthe stuff sold $s vhn!esonie food for infants did much o ruu ihe cliid for life, and created un naltiai nppeLilejs jiir iinan'a and opi ates, which proved ruinous Jo U,.e chifd. physicians have also told him stories' of after fclfrcts of the use of some foods w hieh can searuaiy lie credited.
