It must be extremely irritating to hieh-mlnded- Enelisnmen lo think that this man may one day be their king. Tub divines appear to be taking great interest In Or. Briggs, who has lately been on trial for heresy. Whether the doctor has taken the correct stand upon the mat ter, we are uuable to say, but the one he is advocating is what might have been expected from a progressive mind many are ago. TnAT collapse in the United States treasury, which was billed by our Demo cratic friends to take place about this time, has not materialized and what is more is will not. No nation on earth is today as solid financially as the United States ai.d it is the Republican party that has made it so and which will keep it so as long as It remains In power. By the death of Sir John Macdonaid England loses her strongest grip upon the Dominion of Canada. Although a staunch detender ana admirer of a monarchial form of government, Sir John Macdonaid was In many respects a great man and as managing puliticiau be has bad few equals. Ills extreme jalousy of the commercial supremacy of the United Slates caused biin to do many things to arouse the enm'ty i.f citizens of this coun try; but from his point of view his acts were in the main Justifiable. It is indeed wonderful bow the people continue to demaud that Hon. John Sherman be continued In the Semite. At the close of bis present term he will have served the people 89 years. He entered the lower house March 4lh, 1855, and served until March 18, 1861. when be en tered the senate as successor to S. P. Chase, where he remained continuously until March 4, 1877, when he entered the cabinet of President Hayes and servnd years, when he re-eutered the Senate and remained until the present. "Clkvkland must not be nominated," Is the burden of the Democratic senators' cry. But the Cleveland papers, such as " the Baltimore Sun, say that the Democrat ic senstors are only opposed to Cleveland because they could not control him when he was president. Meanwhile the Repub lican parly Is getting together so rspidly as .to make it every day more certain that neither Mr. Cleveland nor any other Dem- . ocrat can possibly be elected president next year. The pleasing thing about the Republican situation Is, there are no per sonal factious in tin- patty, which stands ready to a man lo aiiiioort the nominee next year, no matter w no lie may be. Tub county ct nveutlon confeired the honor of a nomlnaiion upon our towns man, J. T. Haskell lor representative, lo the regular order of things the .honor be longed to this part of the county and the delegstes so willed it Geo. L Couch en tered the race early, expecting that his past politest services would be recognized in favoring him with the nomination, but the delegates thought otherwise, hence a defeat The nomination is made now and a good, stiaight Republican has been chosen for the place and we hope that everything will move on in perfect har mony for the success of the party in elect Ing Mr. Haskell for representative, Win McKlnley for governor and Hon. John Sherman to the United States senate.

The condition and business of said company on the first day ot April, 18I.

Rixbsa, l0"" ' Superi ntendent of Ins. Jos. Dlnehower, Agent, at Wellington, Ohio. Washington Letter. (From oar Regular Correspondent. I The president has bad a large number ot prominent callers this week, among them Senators Quay, Plumb and Peffer, and although nothing baa been given out for publication It Is fair to assume that political subjects were discussed with some of these gentlemen and that the dis cussions would make mighty interesting reading. Secretary Foter, having arranged the financial affairs ol the government to his satisfaction, is now preparing to go to Ohio to look after some private business. He isn't worrying over that mythical de ficit that has been so troublesome to our Domocmtic friends. Utters from Secretary Bluioe represent him as Improving very rapidly, although, of coune.be has no intention of returning here until fall 'Ine treasury and navy departments are both doing all they can to bring about the stopping ol all illegal seal log In Bur Ing sea. Attorney-general Miller lias given an opinion that the secretary of the treasury has authority to reduce the rent of the Seal islands to an amount propor tionate to tbe number of aenls taken. The 109,000 niako the rent $30,000; therefore? the 7500 seals which are to be taken this year will make tbe annual rent $1750. Real reform never had a brass band at tachment. This is strikingly bro'lglit to mind by tbe fact that Commissioner or pateuts Mitchell haa quietly and without any previous announcement of his Inten tion abolished one of the longest lived and worst abuses that has existed in the patent office. For years congress has Imwu ap ' pealed to, but nothing has been accom plished thereby. Commissioner Mitchell after becoming satisfied that theevll exist ed, throttled It by amending, the rules of practice before bis office by tbe addition of these words: "That no person who bss beeu employed In the patent office shall be permitted to appear (as an attorney or gent) in any case in connection with which lie has taken any action while so employed." This will put an end to the rejection of meritorioua applications for patents by thrifty examiners, In the expec tation of afterwards getting an attorney's fee for getting tbe same application al lowed by another examiner and is a real favor to tbe Inventors of tbe country.

We Invite Your Attention To the following clipping from toe Na tional Stockman and Farmer, of Febru ary 12, 1801: "Our readers who own livestock will hardly fail to notice the handsome new advertisement of the Btockralsers Live stock Insurance company, of Washington, Pa. This concern, now reorganized with 1100,000 capital paid up, Is the outgrowth of the Stockraisers Mutual Livestock In surance company, heretofore operating only in Pennsylvania and Ohio for the former state with an office at Beaver and tor the latter at East Palestine, H. M. Sweet being manager of both companies. Under the new organization, with bead quarters at Washington, Pa., and In a po sition to do business in any state where the call for same are sufficient to Justify, its onward work promises to be as snh stantial as lis past record is clean. This is the only livestock insurance company that the National Stockman and Farmer baa ever recommended to its resders. 8ev eral years ago Mr. Sweet came to this of fice and submittedThis plans, which we ex amined with very great care and then gave hlrr letters of introduction to leading owners of live stock In western Pennsyl vania. These men became associated with him in business and their past record has been remarkable for its success. But two complaints have ever been made against this company and these were indirectly a compliment to the careful manner in which the Stockraisers was doing its busi ness. The names nt the officers, as given in the advertisement, and the namesof the directors are a guarantee that its future work will be safe and honorable. We are personally acquainted with all but ono ot them and we Lave every reason to believe few weeks and then they will get the In evitable discharge.

To a manly nature no conspiclous part in the world can be more galllngthan that allotted both now and later to the prince of Wales. His function Is not to lie that which It seems to be. He will be a king tolerated because be does not pecsess roy al power. As he does not chsnce to have serious tastes like his father, Prince Al bert, bis only earnest pursuit must be do ing nothing and the conditions of his po sition necesvarily tempt him to be good for nothing. It be prove to be, as tbe prince of Wales Is understood to be, I good natured saunterer living for enjoy menl, the devout Englishman may thank his stars. II scandals of various kinds occaslun:illy cloud bis career, the good Englishman may reolce if they do not involve flagrant personal disgrace. No man is subject to a more searching ordeal of character than the prince of Wales, It is no merit for poor and obscure men to be irreproachable, when it Is highly cred itable for a prince.
