CiixghkbsMan Kubtacb Giuso.v bays he
is more ultra than ever on the question of
"tariff reform." Well, why doesn't he
put hiuiseif under treatment for it?
Mk. Mukkison doesn't know what the

The State press is beginning to speak of
tlio esse of the Wheeling Council vs, tie

Sbxatoh Cockbkll, of Missouri, advances
the thought that thero ia nothirg

whom it pleases for President pro tern.,
whether he is or ia not a Senator. Thit
iu certainly a novel proposition, and with
deference to Senator Cockrell, it may bt
doubted whether he could maintain it b)
argument. But thero is no probability of
such a departure while there are so maty
Barkisea in the Senate.
Last night tho police arrested in one
house three women and one man. The man
was admitted to bail on payment of money
to cover his fine. The women offered to
pay but were locked up for the night.
Can tho Chief of Police put his finger en
tho law which gives him the arthority to
mako this discrimination? If he lets tt e
man go, why not the women? If he
locked up the women why not the man?
The Chiefs idea of fair play is somewhat
lopsided.

8haler, who was arrested last nigh
charged with having accepted a bribe t<
influenco his vote as a member of th<
Armory Board in connection with tin
purchased military armory aite?, was takei
to the.ofllcB of Recorder Sraythe tlm
morning. Ex-Mayor Franklin Edson,
also a member of the Armory Board, wapresent
and expressed his desire to become
surety for General fcshaler's appealanee
when wanted.
District Attorney Martine would no1
ac-'-'pt Mr. Edson as surety because h>
had no real estate in this Ktate. A con
suitatiou took place between the counse
and the Genera), after which one of th?
lawyers said that Shaler would waive aL
examination.
Kecorder Smythe fixed the bail at $10,000.
To the question if he had anything
to nay iih to the charge the General said:
"Under the advice of mv counsel I reservt
what I have to say until my trial, excepto
emphatically declare my innocence."

Atlanta, Ga., Dec. 1.?A most important
move has been t&kon in the Atlanta
local option mattor, which ruay have a
stupendous effect in every State in which
an attempt is made to prohibit the traffic
in intoxicating liquors. To-day on the
application of Paul Jones, an Atlanta
liquor dealer and importer of wines, and
of Cincinnati parties interested in the Atlanta
iirewery, Judge McCoy, o! the U. S.
District Court, granted a writ of injunction,
temporarily resttaining Ordinary Calhoun
from counting the ballots cast or declaring
the result of the election of last Wednesday.
Tho local option prohibits the sale
of all but native wines, but it does not
prohibit the importation of foreign wines,
aud it has been decided by tho Supreme
Court of the United States that a permission
to import carries with it the right to
sell. Tho Cincinnati parties appear in
court as having their vested rights destroyed.
The consequence of this action
will bo to have tho whole question of the
constitutionality of local and general prohibitory
laws decided by the U.S. Supreme
Court,

"Galea Ajar," from the Cook County

at the head of the casket. Perhaps the ,

At 9 a. m. Mn. llendricka entered the

by her brother and Mra. Morgan. The
ordeal was most trying, ami the desolate
woman seemed to be utterly prostrated, ]
clinging to the lust to the clay so soon '

impressed with the placid and lifelike *p- t
pearance of the dead, she deshed to preserve
this last Bcene, and, so late as it wbb, v
she sent for a photographer to take a pic- 1
:ure of the casket. Before he arrived,
{{ legations from distant cities began to
rome and were admitted to pass through
tnd view the remains while the photographer
wan tnjmaed at his work. The \
uembersof tho Cabinet, the Judges of j
the Supreme Uourt,and others from Wash- ,

"Finally, brethren, whatsoever things

if there bo any virtue, and if there

Phil. IV: 8.
This is a momentous and a thrilling
cene. We who are gathered here around
lie loved remains of him who lies before
is in the quiet, sublime dignity of what
vo call death, are not all who nbare the
ntereut and the bereavement. A surging
ass of living, sympathising humanity
jacks to repletion the adjacent street. A
tation turns its toarful eye towards our
:ity and counts the fleeting time by heart
hrobs, while it reads the clickings of tne
ightning to learn tho successive stages of
he lost solemn tribute which the living
;an ever pay to the greatness and virtues,
co the memory of the dead. And beyond
is and above us, if we could only with
<ye of ilesh penetrate, there in a still
vaster assemblage of "angels and archingols
and all the company of heaven," ,
A'ho desire to look into the mystery of
uuman redemption and rejoice over the
criumph of a redeemed soul.
His youth had a prolific lesson for the 1
??.i?i..n?nnrlariil. In an ariioininirnountv. i
iomo fifty years ago, ibis tutelage began. .
The days so often spent by thoughtless
boys in pointless diversions from hard 1
study, he, with energy and application, 1
Jevoted to the acquisition of usefulness, 1
permanent knowledge, with painstaking (
earnestness and zeal. The foundations '
were thus laid of that sturdy, indomita- 1
ble character which in later life carried '
him to tho proud pinnacle of exalted success;
and with sucn teachings the lads of 1
oar day should not shrink from the daily '
tasks of the common school, nor the stern- 1
er studies of tho university. And thus he '
proclaims from his collin: "Whatsoever 1
thv hand findeth to do, do it with thy '
might," and work while it is yet day, for 1
soon tho night cometh when no man can I
work." ?
MANHOOD AND MATI-HER YEARS, J
The years of his early manhood were ]
years of trial and comparative privation?
tho common lot of those who, apart from t
the thronged haunts of denser populations
ntnm the tide of pioneer resistance to <
the hostile forces of nature, and verify the i
adage that "Westward the course of em- 1
pire takes its way." To sucli spirits, re- I
sistanco is discipline, growth, develop- 1
ment, and, with the sturdy mon who !
wero his co-laborers in tho aggressive
work, carried out in tho wilderness a great
and prosperous and happy Commonwealth?the
work of thoir own hands and
our heritage who follow after them.
Then, in inaturer years, we have the
sturdy, hearty man, with a strong mind,
and a warm heart in a sound body, essav- ,
ing an active, earnest prominent part In
the affairs of his State and country?as an 1
able and successful advocate; as a pains- I
taking and conscientious legislator, both <
helping to build a new constitution in his i
Statoand adjust the complication of the i
whole people; as the second officer in the ]
Administration of this great nation, he '
was everywhere and always the tame
able, consistent and conscientious character,
which he early illustrated when first
he started ?ut upon life's arena of trial
and conflict and triumph, and sowed the
precious seed of honor, virtue and temperance.
And so he has tnught this leeson,
"Be not decieved, God is not mocked
; for whatsoever a man soweth to the
flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption,
hut he that soweth to the spirit shall of
the spirit reap life everlasting." lie carefully
chose bis seed, and he has abundantly
reaped his harvest.
A TOUCHING HirEKENCB.
Dare we tread upon the verge of hallowed
ground and touch upon the conjugal
relation of Governor Hendricks, and
described how, for forty years and two
months he passed along with dignified,
iteady and faithful pace beside the devot"
id woman whom he had chosen for bat:er
or worse; and how, through storms
md tunshine, liko Isaac and Rebecca,
[hey lived faithfully together in perfect
ove and peace, and kept the vow and covenant
between them, made in the firm
jonds of a mutual affection? We dare
lot do it here, at this time and in this
Dreaence. llut we must not tarry lonaer.

ho right side with rosettes of black crape,

[rave before the funeral party arrived.
The body of the procession had disbanded
liter passing beyond tho city limits and
>nly the military, with the mounted es:ort
entered the cemetery. The space
eserved about the grave had only been
lefined by placing a line of plants and
ivergreens, which was quite sullicient to 1
protect it from intrusion. Just before the
lead of the column came up, the crowd
km pushed back still farther to
(ive ample room to the friends who
vero assigned to the sido of
he grave from whence the column
tpproached. This order was cheerfully
)beyesd. When Mre. Hendricks, leaning
lpon tho arm of Mr. Morgan, stepped
lpon the matting placed alongside the
[rave, and beforo the casket was removed
rom tho hearse, she paused to look down
hto tho last retting place of her dead only
o see a picture of loveliness in its lining
>f green leaves and flowers. Then she
urned to tho grave of her child, which
lad been made glorious with smilax and i
lowers and read in letters of white his

ho grave, on a field of white, in pur>le
letterf, the sentence, "And a !
hreefold cord shall not be broken." j
Che tender love she discerned in this
reatment of her treasure by sympathetic
fiends seemed to give her courage for the
ast ordeal. Her glance caught the monunent
with its drapery of the national flag
mveloping a life-size portrait of her hua- '
?aud, and she turned with the bravery of 1
lerowm to witness the last rites. Just as <
ho coffin was placed beside the grave there 1
vaa a slight sprinkling of rain, causing 1

The Columbus Barracks Band at this ,
joint played the American hymn and the
eading of the service followed. Mrs.
lendricks only leaned more heavily upon ,
Mr. Morgan, resting her head at last upon
lis shoulder, but her self-control was
jravely maintained wbilo tho service was
ead. The Congressional Committee, the
nembersofthe Cabinet and other disinguished
visitors stood upon the other
tide of the grave. The words of the clergy
vore drowned by the sound of the minute
guns, which kep't firing until after the in;erment
was ovor.
When the coflin had been lowerod into
;he vault by the four colored assistants of
;ho undertaker and there was nothing remaining
to be done, Mrs. Hendricks and
the friends of tho family passed by the
Hill open but not repellant praveand took
iheir carriages. The people who had
waited so respectfully then Hocked to the

Washington, Die. 1.?Postmaster Gon- c
eral Vilas, in his annual report, Bays of ji
the large increase in the deficiency of the g
postal revenues to sustain the cost.of the a
poatal service,?that the transactions in the ti
padt two years have changed from a cash w
surplus gain uf nearly two millions to au t,
outlay ot over seven millions surplus of .
cost, a change of more than nine millions
in two years. 0
DIMINISHED REVENUE. f(
Chiefly, tho decrease of revenue has J
resulted from the diminishment in tho [,
rate of letter postage from three to two e
cents upon the half ounce, which was the e!
unit of weight during the period, while ?
tho increase of expenditures has arisen
principally from the natural increase of ti
mails to be carried and the natural ex- n
tension of the service, although other ai
causes have contributed something to both si
effects. fti
The revenue for the last year being less cl
man ior ine precuumg, nmiu iuu vA.youoi.-n r
continued to grow nearly aa before, it fr
might hastily be inferred that tho rate of ai
pontage has been reduced too greatly to m
justify the expectation that the service tr
win again become sell-sustaining. A 01
more attentive examination gives reason si
to think such a deduction to be erroneous, tl
Tho general depression of business is held
responsible for the f illing oil', and tho improving
condition of the postal revenue .
for the last quarter oi the year is regarded ir
as an encouraging sign of businesi re- st
vival. The cost of the service lor the rl
year was $50,942,415; tho appropriation was
$50,147,000. [r
TIIK l'Lt/MS.
Two thousand and twenty-one offices Q,
were newly established aud discontin- w
tinued during the year, leaving at its close ai
the total number to be 51/220; of which j>:
2/233 were Presidential and 4'^,01'J fourth ^
class. Both establishments and appoint- a;
menta weio considerably less in number gi
than during the preceding year. More ^
new ollices were created in the Southern *
Srates than in any other section, as was h
the case during the year before; and it is h
interesting to note that of these, Virginia *1
reouired more than any other State?one
hundred. In every Stato and Territory
the number of poBtolllces was incroasod, Jj
Bave only in Nevada, in which discontinnances
exceeded new establishments. 1)1
The number of appointment of post- 01
masters duriug the year was 11,203, less al
by 2,038 than during the yeur preceding. fl(
The decreasa arises from the feet that a]
comparatively few offices were established al
or appointments made duijng the incum- 01
benov ol Postmaster General Iiatton,
who left it to the incoming administration "
to till vacancies to the number of two
thousand and upwards cccuring during ?
his period of service. The number of re- 11
movals during the year was 810, exceed- n'
ing by 297 those made in the preceding J*

The extension of the free delivery sys- la
torn is recommended. The postage upon pi
local mail matter at carrier delivery oft
dees amounted to $5,281,720 10, exceeding
the cost of the service by $1,21)5,7(18 55. 8j
There has been also a general increase in ^
ill the usual statistical items bccause of p
the additional cities taken into the systorn.
The avorHge cost per piece lor bl

however. w
The great labor performed by the car- w
riers may be conceived trom the (act that 91

190,307; au increase of 1.08 percent over
the proceeding year's experienco. Postal
clerks make au average daily run of 120.49

The public has responded well to the ?
special delivery system, and it is suggested b
whether steps ought not soon be taken to
expand that system to the utmost limits b
ot the postal service. The question ol lor- a

not to be insisted upon at the coat ol the

A UB1CJIITKH OUTLOOK
'or Da*laeti?An Active Winter Trade Pre*
dieted.
ptcial Corrttpondmct of the InUllUjeneer.
Philadelphia, Nov. 30,?During the
ut ninety days textile mills have been
ither built or projected, which, if placed j
a line, would reach nearly half a mile. t
'hese mills are for the manufacture of fl
arpeta, hosiery, upholstery, ginghams, L
irseys and in fact all kinds of textile B
oods usually made in this market. The e
ctive fall trade has stimulated manufac- t
iring activity, although the high price of
ool to the extent to which it enters into v
fxtile manufacturing has made manufac- v
irers somewhat cautious. A great deal jj
f new machinery is already contracted
>r and will be placed in position as soon d
a completed. A large amount of fire- si
roof material has been contracted for, g
asides elevator work, architectural work, o
lectrical lighting work, heavy and light o
ngines and boilers and other ri
laterials.' The indications this week
oint to a resumption of industrial tl
2tivity in textile lines, in iron and steel L
laking, and in somo other branches of gi
lanufacturing on a large scale aftor Janu- 13
ry first. At presont demand is rather w
ack, as the fall trado is over and rotailers ft
re anxious to distribute the stocks pur- it
lased and square, up accounts for the
aar. Report* irom travelling agents, and
om distributing houses all over the West A
ad South, just to hand, show jobbers and
lanufacturors that a very satisfactory disibution
of goods of every kind is going
i, and that buyers will be r^ady for d
>ringand su aimer goods a little sooner ti
tan usual. *
THE IRON MARKET.
The iron trade ia only fairly activo, but n
i stool rails, nails and some kinds of con- ?ji
ruction iron, orders are far ahead. Steel p
lils are $35; nails $2 50 to $2 75; bridge tj
on 2 to 3 cents; forge iron $15 to $10; ^
mndry $10 to $18. tj
The proipects for an active winter trade l
vcr the country are more favorable this ic
eek than a week or ten days ago. Boot je
ad shoe makers' orders have fallen ofT, j,
ut the manufacturer and dealers in &
ather report a good deal of heavy buying 0
f manufacturers, and prices are still u
loving upward. Common and medium ri
rade wools ore in light demand tjut jj
I outside prices. Here and there ti
slight weakening is shown by hold- (j
rs of large stocks. The carpet and j
osiery manufacturers will stock up as e(
savily as their facilities will allow with
mug and buouaer goods. The export \]
ade from Philadelphia is steadily in- a
-easing in hardware specialties, cnairs,
xtile goods, chiefly hosiery, cotton cloth, x
le export of which is increasing from x
3th northern and southern mills. Agents c]
! Philadelphia manufacturers in Central c,
id South America and in Kurope are 0j
inding in larger orders than ever before ^
(id find less difficulty in making sales, ,,
though tho difference in business metli- q
is of American and foreign merchants [j
:ts as an obstruction to the easy estab- a
dhment of trade in these countries. yi
Tho coal trade, although (juite active, is
ear the cloao of its season and consumers
i both Kartern and Western markets are
qw pretty well supplied. Stocks at tide d
ater have declined, but the demand is n.
io heavy to justify any stubborn course .
y producers as against the reasonable 11
umands of miners. Receipts of lumber ri

utic coast are pretty wells.ocked with ^

Berlin, Dec. 1.?Prince Bismarck, in
the Reichstag, to-day announc ed a protest
from the Emperor against attempts to
inter/ere with his sovereign righto. Prince
Bismarck deemed the expulsion of
Grangers from Germany a wise measure,
md explained that the empire was
powerless to interfere with the
rights of the different federal States
comprising the German Empire.
Be stated that the edict of expulsion corngained
of was issued by Prussia in the
sxercise of its lights as one of the federal
itate?, and m tlio I'rusaian i'lenipoteniary
ho was bound to oppose Imperial inerference.

a sensational 8cbnk.
There was a sensational scene in the j
leichatag to-day when the President read <
he Emperor's message, which was counter- ]
ignedby Prince Bismarck. After Bis arck's
speech, which created still greater
urprise, Dr. Windthorat, who was greatly t
xeited and hardly able to speak, moved j
a discuss his interpellation. t
The motion carried, the whole house, J
rith the exception of the Conservatives, 1
otiag in iw favor. Thereupon Prince !
tismarck, followed by all the members of G
tie Buudesrath, lelt the House.
Dr. Windthorat then moved to with- ?
raw the interpellation in order to con- 1
ider the Emperor's message. The I'ro- 1
resaists waating an immediate discussion
f the meaaage, challenged the division
n Windthorat's motion, which was carled.
in the discussion of the budget, when 8
le item of Bismarck's salary was reached, v
>r. Windthorat renewed his question re- f
irding the expulsion of thePolea. Prince 11
iismarck, who re-entered the chamber F

Sir:?No contest in the parliamentary d
lections of Great Britain and Ireland ex- ?
ites greater interest than that in the Dar- 8
en Division of Lancashire, which takes IS
lace to-morrow (Wednesday). This arises
om the fact that tho Conservative candi- *
ate (Lord Cranborne) is a son of the Mar- J
uis of Salisbury, and also because the j
onstituency is about equally divided in a
mtiment, neither party claiming over t
DO majority, although the registered c
oters number 12,300. The Liberal
indidate is Mr. J. Gerald Potter, a very fl
withy and popular gentleman, the head fl
f tiio largest waU paper concern in the ii
rorld. located at Darwen, xar. rotter's nave
place. Employing over 1,000 hands,
nd being a Lancashire man, over 50 yeara
f age, Mr. Potter has advantages over his
ontnful opponent, who is fresh from
chool and has no interests binding him to.
ancaahire. (In Great Britain it is not
aquired that a member ahall belong to
he district he represents.) Both candiates
have made a gallant fight, as the
ampaign has lasted about four months
nd each of them during that time has *
veraged about three speeches per week,
Adressing the electors in every part of the

The laws against bribery at elections are
ery strict in England, and to an Amerian
they will appear unreasonable. It is
gainst the law to pay any money for
ny bands of music, torches,.flags, banner*,
ibbons, Ac., and there is a penalty of ?100
>r leudiug or asing for the conveyance of
oters, vehicles or animals usually kept
>rhire. The same penalty is inflicted for .
ubllshing placards, potters, bills, Ac., 1
rithont the printer's name and address.
Threatening to withdraw custom, or
hreatening to evict a tenant, if done to i
alluonco a vote, renders one liable to a '
ear's imprisonment, or afine ol ?200, and i
epriyation ol the right ol voting for seven 1
ears. U is a crime to pay or receive <
noney for the conveyance ol voters, except i
rhen hired by voters for their own ex- I
losive nse. Private conveyances lent I
ratuitouslv can alone be employed. i
The pnnlshment is very severe on those i
rho treat TOteri to meat or drink, and to (
I give a tin rattle to ft voter's baby (if done
to influence the man's vote) 10 to risk
imprisonment, fine and disqualification
for any public office. If these olfenses be
committed by a candidate he also loses
his seat if elected, and can never again
represent the constituency. Payments
for losb of time, wages, traveling expenses,
<Scc., are considered equal to bribery.
The law as stated above is not a dead
letter, as many may suppose, and in a few 1
months we may hear of ten or a dozen
members being unseated for bribery, tho |
candidates being liable for the acts of.
their agents, canvassers, ?Jcc.
