The cold since Wednesday night, ofl
which the extreme has been 14 deg. below

The transit ot Venus occurred on Wed
nesday strictly on time, but tho prayers for
a cloudless day to enable tho scientific pco
pie carefully to watch it trom beginning to
end, was but partially answered. North
of about the 40th parallel in tho United
States, (lie sky was clear during about
three of the six hours, or thereabouts, of
the transit; over the next five degrees
southward there was hardly any sunshine'
while south of that the whole day was
cloudless and inauy very fine observations
were taken, notably by the pMrty orGcrman
astronomers at Aiken, South Carolina. At
Ottawa the sun went behind the clouds
about the middle of the show.
For a couple of weeks past the loungers
about the purlieus of the criminal court at
Chicago enjoyed what to them no doubt
was better than a play in watching the pro
ceedings in the trial of Madeline Strula for
the murder ol a noted Chicago gambler
named Charles Stiles, in July lust. The
interest of the "performance" reached its
height on Monday when the defendant was
put upon the stand and allowed to tell her
own story. She did it in a way so simple
and straightforward as to 1. i'..ci.' o
its entire truth, and gave a picture el lilt:
among the demi-montle sufficiently harrow
ing to make one's hair stand on end. The
climax was reached when in the narrative
of her illicit connection with Stiles, after
detailing wrong after wrong and abuse af
ter abuse until ber sufferings became sim
ply maddening, she raised her voice, which
had grown almost inarticulate from ex
citement, as if for a final, desperate effort,
to a high pitch and cried, "And then I
killed bun ! fainting dead away as she
' ottered the words, and compelling the
court to adjourn over from Monday to
Wednesday to enable the lady sufficiently

Tho message of President Arthur, sent
to congress last Monday, will be found on
our loside pages. The document is gener
ally commended by tho press as a very
able ttidlcioua and businesslike nanvr. it
may be divided into two parts the first,
which includes two-thirds ol it, would ap
propriatelv come under the New York JV'tt
lion' headlnir of "Mere Mention." It
gives in short paragraphs a condensation
of all the matters of fact and suggestion
presented In the reports of the various
cabinet ministers, with here and there
a suggestion thrown in, but without any
distinctive expression of presidential opin
ion. While constructing a lengthy mess
age on this plan involves very little brain
labor, it Is valuable to the country press as
well as ordinary readers in that it relieves
them ot the labor of toiling through au
mcrous lengthy documents to get at their
marrow, which the President has so adroit
ly extracted for them.
Tho second part is gotten up in tho style
ot party platforms. The President is in
favor ot everything that the voice of the
country as expressed through the press and
at the late elections has shown to be popu
lar, and is opposed to everything that is
unpopular, without much regard, to liis
own attitude or action or that of his party,
or peculiar section ol his party to which
he belongs, on thequestinns involved here
Thus, in spite of i)ie utter unwillingness
ot euiicr mo rresiucni or ins party a year
ago to touch the question of a reduction
of taxation, the warning of tho President
on that subject now is quite earnest and
peremptory. Tho people, he says, have
been overtaxed by the present laws to an
extent that left in the treasury last year a
surplus of $100,000,000, and this year of
$1-15,000,000, and such a condition leaves
no alternative but extravagant expenditure
or extinguishment of the public debt by
tho wasteful process of the government
buying up its bonds at an enormous pre
mium leforo thoy aro redeemable. The
proper way, ho thinks, to reduco taxation
is to abrogate all internal taxes except on
sptrits and to effect a moderate reduction
of tariff taxation, not, however, in a way
that shall amount to an abandonment of
the policy of protection to American in
He is quite outspoken on tlie subject of
extravagaut appropriations, and recurs
with evidjnt satisfaction to his veto of the
great river and harbor grab. To defeat
tho jobbers and log-rollers in congress
hereafter, in their practice of grouping in
a single bill appropriations for a great va
riety of objects, some proper and others
objectionable, but all ot which must stand
together, ho recommends a constitutional
amendment liko that in force in New Yoik
by which the executivo may veto any item
or items of an appropriation bill without
disapproving tho measure as a whole
Considering the attitudo and action of
the President on the subject of civil service
reform, especially In connection with tho
New York, Pennsylvania and Virginia
campaigns last fall, the President's solemn
sermon on that subject Is ao droll as to sug
gest tho idea of intentional burlesque. In
the same vein of burlesque or biting irony
is his referenco to Blaine's wonderful
"Peace Congress," which was to meet at
Washington in the present month, but be
foro summoning which the President says
ho thought it but decent to "consult the
representatives of the people on the sub
ject," which Blaine bad no idea of doing.
Other recommendations, such as the re
duction of letter postage to 2 or 1J eta. an
ounce, protection ot our forests, &c, are in
the same voteeatching, parly platform
vein, but while they may elicit some news
paper praise as being conceived in a states
manlike and patriotic spirit, will hardly
come to fruition, any more than bis tariff
and revenue and civil service reform re
commendations, until the republican party
passses out of power and tho reins come
into democratic hands.
Si;hbay Law in New Youk. New
York city had a genuine surprise last Sun
day in thu sudden enforcement of what a
large portion of her people regarded as a
new edition of the old Connecticut Blue
Laws. There have lecn on the statute
books of that states, as on those of many
other states, for a hundred years, very rigid
Sunday laws, but which, by reason of their
non enlorccment tor many years, were sup
posed to have been Ion ago repealed. For
a year or two past New York has been
getting up a revision of her peual code, and
in this revision the old Sunday laws were
embodied without change, with au addi
tional provision or two imposing heavy
peualties on police ofllcers, constables, &c.,
for neglect to enforo them. The revised
code went into force on tho 1st iust., and
last Sunday was the first to try the practi
cability as well as wisdom of enforcing
the old Sunday laws. The police tried to
do their whole duty, and the result was
that ollenders were arrested by the thou
sand. Street venders of all commodities,
newspapers iucluded, were arreted, barber
ln -m ri lint, and the tonsorial artists
in bonis were kept busy, as outsiders who
wjfehed to be shaved, claimed to be guests.
The street cars were not running, and ex
press drivers were taken in if found violat
ing the law. Projectors of sacred concerts
fared in a similar way. All suloous Wine
rigidly closed, thirsty people were driven
to the hotels, where, like the unshaven,
they were scored as guests. Kveu the drug
stores were closed in some part of the city,
but in other paits they were Kept open and
did a lively business in "liquid medicine."
Also expressmen, convoying baggage of
passengers to tho railroad depots, were ar
rested. The law was evidently enforced in
a way as to make it odious, with the view
of securing its early rental. Comparative.
ly few liquor dealers were secured, milk-
meu. butchers, bakers, grocers, barbers,
rag pickers, and Hebrew storekeepers mak
uig up the number. A laborer employed
bytheSimm Heating Company was the
llrst person arreste I.
Congress re-assembled on Monday, a
quorum being present in both bouses.
Aside from rending the President's mes
sage, which was the first business in order,
the only business done in the senate was to
take oflicial notice of the death of benator
Hill. In the house, in addition to reading
the message and the announcement ot the
deaths of representatives Lowe and Updo
graft', a republican member, duly mindful
no doubt of the November cyclone, hasten
ed to introduce a bill to prohibit political
assessments, or Hubbclllsm.
The same subject was brought to the
attention of the senate on Tuesday by a
resolution of Mr. Beck instructing the
Judiciary committee to report on the
amount of political assessments levied dur
ing ilie lato enmpaign, bow it was dis
bursed, &c.
Mr. Kelly introduced his bill in the
house on Tuesday to strike off the internal (
revenue lax on tobacco in July in all its;
forms, mi l it is understood that the ways
and means committee Maud 0 to 5 in tuvor
of tho bill.
The senate on Wednesday and Thursday
discussed the Lowell bankruptcy bill.
Tlie iiouse tin ednesday heard majority
and minority reports read in favor of and
against Kelly's bill to repeal the Ux on
tobacco; and on Thursday ordered 20,000
copies of the report ot the tariff commis-
sion to be printed and discussed the Indian
appropriation bill.
Tlie report of the tariff commission has
rather taken congress and the country by
surprise. Indisputably the object in crea
ting the commissi) n was to relegate the
tariff over to the next congress, but tho late
elections gave the commission such a nudge
that they not only concluded to report to
the present congress but to recommend snch
a revision of tho tanfl as will reduce the
tariff by 25 per cent.
Mr. Folger's report on the state of the
finances contains a great many words and
a great many numerals.
Heic aro tour words and two rows of
figures from the accounts of the last fiscal
Internal revenuu $ 1 -lt, 497,535
Surplus Revenue 1 15,54;,810
Volumes of discussion on the state of the
finances could add nothing to the force of
this coincidence.
The internal revenue has just provided
the surplus! N. Y. Sun.
Mr. Dana, of tho Sun, who was formerly
a bright light in tho Republican f.dd, still
clings to his old "protection" notions, and
agrees with Judge Kelly in urging the
total repeal of the internal revcuue taxes
so as to compel congress to leave tho pres
ent tariff substantially undisturbed. A
fairer way to state the figures, and that in
which President Arthur appears to concur
as well as tho tariff commission, would be
about this: Remove all the internal rev
enue taxes except on spirits and tobacco,
and reduce the present tariff taxation 20
per cent., would leave
Internal revenue reduction $ 85,000,000
Tariff reduction 60,000,000
Surplus revenue $14(1,000,000
Nine-tenths of the vo.ers ot tho whole
eountry would readily assent to suoh a so
lution of the revenue reduction question.
Internal Revenue. The report of
Gen. Raum, Commissioner of Internal
Revenue, submitted to the Secretary of the
Treasury on the 1st iust., shows that taxa
tion by Internal revenue has increased
rrom $113,000,000 In 1879 to $146,500,000
in 1881, and estimates tho receipts for this
year at $1 15,000,000. He believes the rev
enues should be reduced from $00,000,000
to $70,000,000 annually, and that if they
aro continued at tlie present rate the Treas
ury would contain a surplus in a short
tlmo which would necessitate the purchase
of bonds, the demand for which by the
government would enhance their value at
the cost of the people. He thinks the duty
on sugar, now amounting to $40,000,000
yearly, should be abolished, and that home
producers, ns an offset to the loss of pro
tection, be given a bounty of cents on
each pound manufactured. The Commis
sioner estimates the stock of distilled spir
its in bond as about equal to six years con
sumption, and thinks an extension of the
bonded period is a pressing want ot the
trade. As the manufacturers, to avoid
withdrawal of their property, and conse
quent payment of taxes, are thinking of
exporting their whisky and then reimport
ing and storing It in customs bonded ware
houses, General Raum Is of opinion that
legislative relief could be ufforded with
safety, without putting the manufacturers
to this outlay.
Tho English in r-gypt, in capturing
Arabi Pasha, found themselves in the pre
dicament of the man who bad caught the
bear by the tail and to w hom it was equal
ly dangerous to hold on or let go. If the
English dismissed Arabi they would there
by bo menaced by the presence of a dan
gerous character; while if they gave him
a fair trial, which the world insisted be
was entitled lo. the evidence would reveal
such an amount of English and French
jobbery in Egypt during the lal half doz
en years that the sympathies of the world
would have teen enlisted on the side ot
the "rebels." In their strait IorU DuUetm
was sent to Cairo to pilot them out, and he
did it very ingeniously. Jlis device was
to persuade Arabi to plead guilty and then
to have the Khedive pardon him on con
dition of b leaving the country. With
the private stipulation that Arabl should

The First Performance A View from the
Jltitrlers' (lattery Speaker Keifer't
Washington, I). C, Dec. 4, 1882.
A "first performance," be it theatrical or
parliamentary ,always forms a great attrac
tion for the spectacle-loving Washlngtonl
ans; mid especially for the large number
of transient visitors always iu the city. It
was, therefore, not surprising on this first
day to find the galleries of the House
crowded within, and its portals surrounded
by a throng of eager sightseers. The open
ing scenes in the House and senate were
such as have been often described. There
was great confusion on tho floor of the
House both before and after the opening of
the session. Members greeted ono another
with great effusiveness and joked and
laughed loud, or talked seriously iu pairs
or groups. I he senate, on the other hand,
maintained thitt dignity for which it is re
! uowned
By half past eleven o'clock both houses
hud answered to the roll call; and then
members and senators made themselves as
comfortable ns possible while they listened
to the monotonous drawl of the clerk read
ing the Prciident's message.
There is much talk and speculation in
oflicial and political circles in relation to
the course of legislation during the pres
cut session. Neither party has as yet held
a caucus or mapped out its programme
From conversations with different incin-
beri and senators, one is convinced of wide
and apparently irreconcilable differences
of opinion, especially on the subject of the
reduction of taxation. All agree that there
must bo reduction, but how? That's the
question. Individual democratic members
and senators have expressed the opinion
that tho better policy for them is to oppose
legislation on this question so that the
coming democratic house can have a clear
field. But others, among the most experi
enced nnd practical of their party, express
the opinion that such a course will be dan
gerous. 1 hey say that the democratic par
ty in congress will commit a serious mis
take if it undertakes blindly any reduction
of taxation; that it nothing in this line is
accomplished at tins session of congress,
tho house democrats, when the next con
gress meets, will find themselves confront
ed by a grave problem, tho difficulties ofl
which they will surely hnd themselves un
able to surmount, as tho republicans, with
their splendid leadership and organization
in the senate, will harass and embarrass
them at every turn. The result will be
that tho republicans will have an effective
rallying cry to go to the country within
the presidential campaign of 1384, and the
democrats will again be put on the defen
sive, than which there can lie nothing more
fatal in politics. If tlie reduction in taxa
tion which the country demands, and de
mands speedily, be accomplished this win
ter, the responsibility will in a great meas
ure bo divided, and both parties will share
the praise. These views will be Impressed
upon senators and members of the demo
cratic party, and will have much weight
The strong probability is, therefore, that
there will be a material reduction in taxa
tian before the adjournment of congress on
the 4th of March.
On aecount of the repairs that are being
made In the White House, the President's
receptions will not begin until after the
The Aurora Deacon makes the absurd
statement that the reason tor Judge Cody's
declining to run against Cullen for con
gress in this district was that the commit
tee had assessed him $2,000 for campaign
purposes. The Deacon should know that
that is not the democratic style. Hubbell
ism is a peculiarly rcpulican institution.
Mr. Haley made a pretty thorough can
vass of the district, and we doubt whether
it cost hi in $150; Judge Cody would not
brve been asked to spend any more, and he
would havo beaten Cullen ''higher'n a
kite," as Mr. Haley would have dono had
he been regularly nominated and not
picked up so late as a mere makeshift.
The outcome thus far ot the attempt of
J. R. Corbus, "the rotten ulcer of political
depravity whom God in his goodness al
lows to be postmaster" of La Salle, as Jack
Reddick designates him,to suppress the cir
culation of the La Salle Democrat, is that
Mr. Rtddick, the publisher, has been sum
mnned to appear before Commissioner
Hoyue, at Chicago, next Monday, to an
swer tho charge of publishing an obscene
paper. The complaint was lodged against
the Ikmocrat by Corbus on the suggestion
of the Department at Washington, in
whoso view, It seems, there was probably
good ground for excluding the Democrat
from the mads, but that Corbus was a trifle
"too previous" iu doing so before first giv
ing the paper a hearing and getting an
order from competent authority Tor such
action. Jack, pending the heariug at Chi
cago, is held under $2,000 bail.

old sou of John Bell had a miraculous es
cape from a most horrible death last Sun
day. The child and father had been tak
ing a ride, and the parent had left the bug
gy to assist his wite into the vehicle. The
horse at that momentdashed away at furi
ous speed with the boy clinging to the
lines. At tho corner of First and Wright
street some idiot picked up a board and
threw it at the horse to stop it. Instead of
accomplishing it the board struck the boy
across the face, knocking him from the
buggy and breaking his nose. It Is a won
der the little fellow's head was not crushed

up and in a few moments he was under

serious will happen.
freePmx: "Mrs. John Robinson, of
Streator, on Wednesday evening, went
from the house to the coal pile a few feet
from the door and on returning with a
full pail in her hand, she slipped and fell.
It is thought that as she fell she must have
struck on the edge of the coal pail with
her neck; the skin is broken about her
nose and eyebrows and the general indi
cations point to a violent fall. Her little
daughter, 8 years old, saw her drop to the
ground, and ran to her and asked her if
she was much hurt. Not receiving any
answer, she became alarmed, and called
on the neighbors for assistance. They
quickly responded but their help was un
availing, for when they arrived the woman
was dead. The generally accepted belief
now is, that her death was due to a dislo
cation of the neck caused by tailing on the
pail. Mr. Robinson and his four helpless
childreh, one of whom was a babe still on
the breast, are left in deeply pitiable con
dition and deserve the sympathy of all in
the community.
