In the entertainment of the Spanish Infanta and her suite, who were In Washington a week as the official guest of the nation, It discharged an un usual task in a most satisfactory manner to all concerned, in spite of the attempts of some tuft-hunting Americans to per suade it into making a mess of things by fol lowing Europeon customs. Not a little of the credit, however, is due to the Infan ta, who proved herself to be a woman ful ly endowed with common sense, ready to adapt herself to American customs, In stead of expecting Americans to adopt Spanish customs. Before leaving for New York yesterday, she expressed her self as delighted with her visit to Wash in uton and with the people she met there. After spending a few days in New York, she will go to the world's fair. Representative Chas.

Mr. O'Neill is justly celebrated for bis clearness of vision In political matters. Although it was announced some days ago that the administration program of congressional legislation included an in come tax snd there are the best of reasons for believing tbat announcement to have been authentic, the talk ot some of the men close to Pres. Cleveland during the last few days makes it apparent tbat If the idea proves very unpopular, as It Is al most certain to do, they are preparing the way tor Pres. Clevelaud to say that he neyer thuught of recommending sn In come tax, just as he said recently that neither be nor Secretary Carlisle had ever bad any Idea of redeeming treasury notes in silver, although Secretary Carlisle had .positively stated tb more than one man that such a course had been agreed upon.

Many of the above goods wore bought for our new store in Lorain, but the delay of our building compels this sale. In shor, the idea of an Income tax is put out as a feeler ol public sentiment. It it appears fayorable it will be recommended to congress, otherwise it will be dropped for the time being. Commissioner Lochren, In a published iutervlew talks very nicely about his in tending to justly administer the pension laws and about tho justice of every man entitled to a pension being granted one, but, Inasmuch as the number of new pen sions granted has fallen away below what the average was when Gen. Raum was at the; bead oi the ofllce, there must be a wide difference between his talk and his actii and no man under the government occupies a place where the effects of his acts are sooner or mure widely felt than are those of the commissioner of pensions.
