Monday week was a great day iti Ohio— because for the first time women had a voice in electing members of the school boards In nearly every city and town there were women candidates for members.

His m&nv West \ irginia friends congratulate him. The appointment ia a reward for his services in stumping the Bacond district last fall for Postmaster Gen eral Wm. L. Wilson.—State Jon rant (Rrp. All other things being equal, that was a good reason for his appointment. The voice of Senator Frye, of Maine, is for war. He says: “Give us Republican rule and we will hoist the American dag on whatever island we think best, aud no hand shall ever pull it down.” Over thirty year* ago, when Jubal Early was at the gates of Washington, the doughty Frye was not ou the breastworks to help keep “Old Glory a-wavin’, though he had attained muster age. There are other jingoists having like records, perhaps. ♦ ♦ Gen. James L. Kemper, ex-Governor of Virginia, died at his home in Orange couu ty, Virginia, ou Sunday night. He was the first native Governor of Virginia after the war—nominated through the induenee of Gen. Mahons, but not dominated by him. He was one of the ablest and most fearles* executives that Virginia has had since the war. During the war he commauded a brigade in Pickett s division, and at Gettys burg was left upon the field for dead. Shepherdstown is to have a new industry. Robert G. Miller has leased from Joseph L. Coo bus an acre of land north of town and is now fitting it up as a skunk farm. Mr. Miller expects to stock it with about fifty sk uuks, and if he has any sort of luck at all he will make money from his queer in vestment by selling the pelts from the odor iferous little animal*. Mr. Miller has been buying skunk bides for lor several year past. He sells them in New York to man ufacturing furriers, and the demand is con Siam. r rum .v*/ *.pw Hums nrr irnppru each winter in this vicinity, and there is money to be made by the trappers if they follow the business persistently.— &>e/. >henis town Rejuter. The per scent tbe proprietor will get on his 'vestments can hardly be exaggerated. Whether the people of Sbepherdstown be profited by this new industry, or summer boarders be attracted, may depend on the propinquity of the farm to town. One thing is sure : The keeper of the cats wilt not need to herald his approach by trumpets, ami all that will be needed to disperse the crowds that block the thoroughfares of good old Shepherdstown will be to sav “S’cst!” aud they'll scatter. There's au aroma about this scheme to turn an honest penny that exceeds that which hangs around the fishstanda in spring times. The Supreme Court on Monday rendered its decision on the Income Tax law. Two sections are proclaimed unconstitutional, but tbe remainder of the law stands, the court being four to four. The turned down sections are those that relate to incomes de rived from rents, and from ^tate, county and Municipal bonds. The effect of all the opinions delivered is to show that the court was unanimous in the opinion that the law is unconstitutional as to municipal and State bonds ; that Chief Justice Fuller aud j Justices Field, Gray, Brewer, Brown and Sniras held it to be invalid on incomes de rived from rents, and that Justices Harlau and White dissent from this opinion as to rents. It is imposible to state the exact Ji . vision as to the validity of the other parts of the law further than was disclosed by the proceedings. It appears quite clear that Chief Justice Fuller and Ju*tices Harlan and White voted to sustain the other parts of tbe law, and the best opinion obtainable is that Justice Brown stood with them in this opinion, which would leave Justices i Field, Gray, Br°wer and Sliiras as the op ponents of the law as a whole. Politics < seems to have had little or nothing to do | with the decision. ttw ” - The Baltimore Conference. The Baltimore Conference of the M. E.

Cleveland Indignant• Washington, April 7.—When the repori of a speech made in a Methodist Conference at Salem, Mass , by Rev. Dr. Pausing, and his subsequent published interview accus ing the President of intemperance was shown to Mr Cleveland this evening, he said w ith considerable warmth : ‘‘This is simply au outrage, though it is not the first time a thing of this kind has been attempted. 1 cannot avoid a feeling of indignatiou thal any man who makes claim to decency, and especially one who assumes the role of a Christian minister, should permit himself tc become a disseminator of wholesale lies and calumnies not less stupid than they are cruel and wicked. “I easily recall other occasions when those m >ro or less entitled to be called minister* of the gospel have been instrumental iu put ting iuto circulation the most scandalous fast hoods concerning my conduct and char acter. The elements or factors of the most approved outfit for placing a false nml bare faced accusation before the public appear tc be first, some one with baseness and motive sufficient t» invent it ; second, a minister with more gullibility and love of notoriety than piety, greedily willing to listen to il and gobble it; and third, a newspaper anx iously willing to publish it. “F<>r the sake of the Christian religion 1 am thankful that these scandal-mongering ministers are few, and ou every account I am glad that the American people love fair play and justice, and that in spite of all ef fort to mislead them they are apt to form a correct estimate of the character and labor* of their public servants.” Hon. Wm. L Wilson took the oath ol office as Postmaster General last Wednesday and eutered upon his duties the following day The oath was administered by Chief Ju«;ice Fuller in the presence of the prin cipal officials of the department.

B. Rouss, of New York, to aid them in building a uaw hall and engine house in this city. The hall was crowded, and as Governor Holliday stepped to the front he was greeted with applause, as the boys seemed iuspired with the idea that their friend Rouss would be heard from thro’ hint. The Governor most feelingly referred to the fact that Mr. Rouss was a member of the Union Company in his boyhood days and helped to work the old hand engiues then in use, and when he said that Mr. Rouss had instructed him to draw a sight draft on him for $5,000 when the company needed it, a burst of applause was prolonged and, taken up from the outside, was echoed over the entire town. A committee was ap pointed by Capt. George Kinzel to draft suit able resolutions thanking Mr. Rouss for the magnificent gift. After retiring for a few minutes the committee returned with reso lutions, which were adopted by a rising vote, the entire audience joining with the company.
