He has the approval io this project of Mayor Piogree, of I'etroii. Globe Democrat. Ia some States it would only re necessary to turn the ky of the State house door while the legis lature was in session to realize Gov Pingree's dream. E. M. Osires, of Paris, who recent ly bought the Castle of Malmaison, is having every room in it carefully restored. Among the best-known reotus arrNapoleon's study, billiard room and drawing room, and the room in which the Empress Jose phine died. La I'ctite Malmaison, where Josephine had her green houses, has already been restored bj the Count da Barri, brother of the King of N'aplf s. ' Tba English governess of h a Majesty Alfonso XIII, King of Spain, and formerly King of Cuba, ate, is responsible, says the New Ifork Sun, for this story about her myal charge. His Majesty evinced one day at luoeheou a decided preference for fingers in place of forks. After he bad offended sever al times in this way, his governess remoastrated'gently: "Sire, kings da not eat with their fingers." "This King doesl" came the gleeful reply, proving beyond a doubt that the small Spanish monarch has atill his share of boyish fun. The Governor of Arkansas evi dently loses no opportunity to let the world know where that State Btands on the financial, question. The. credentials of Senator Jones for his new terra, beginning March 4th, this week presented to the Senate, have the name of the State conspicuously printed across the top in silver letters and the great seal of the State is also silver. And Senator Jones is prond of bis connection with a State which is bo thoroughly devoted to silver, just as the State has shown its pride in keeping such a champion in the Senate. Thomas B. Reed will be "the fctber of the House" in the Fifty fifth Cengress, having served con tinuously for nineteen years, or ciuce his election to the Forty-fifth Congress in 1877. Judge Culberson, of Texas, was elected in 1875, and we "father of the House" in the session of the last Congress, but he baa given way to another Democrat, John W, Crawford. Congressman Warmer, or nnladelnhia, was elected in 1871, but he was out in 1876. Gen. Bingham, of Phila- delpbia, was elected in 1879, two years later than Reed. BentonMc Millio, of Tennessee, was elected in 1879. Joseph Cannon, of Illinois wee elected in 1873, but he failed la be returned for the Fifty-second Congress.' ' Galusha A.'

C, whf-n Congress as sembled ia j.iint eanreation to count the electoral votes, ly thr negro member of the House from that Slate. Jut as soon as the intention to make this objection was known, the democrats in Con gress infjrmed the republicans that if the objection was made and sus tained by either branch of Congress they might as well abandon all idea of inaugurating McKinley, and that the count of the electoral votes would not be allowed to proceed. As soon as the republican leaders ascertained that the democrat were in dead earnest thry repudiat ed the" K'hrme, and put ail the responsibility upon "that fool nigger," who was made to ai a uuce that he had changed his mind about objecting to the counting of the vote ofS. C. Congress counted the votes all right aud there was no trouble, but had not the democrats been prompt in showing their resent ment the vote of S. C. would have been protested and thrown out not to ielp McKinley, but as the Srst step towards turning the State over to the negroes aud others who thrived under the notorious Chamberlain-Moses regime. An unexpected opposition to the monetary conference bill has sprung up in the House, under the loader hip of Representatives Hill, of Conn., and Brewster, of N. Y., both of whom are uncompromising republicans, and supporters of the single gold standard idea, and both of whom have publicly stated their belief that the bill is tho result of a scheme concocted bySenatorChand icr and other anti-McKinley re publicans to get McKinley in trouble. Whether the opposition proves serious will depend alto gether upon whether Speaker Ileed withes the bill to pass, and the in dications are that he does. Secretary Herbert's idea of fixing the limit of the price to be paid by the government for armor plate at f -100 a ton has been adopted by the Senate Naval Committee, and a clause to that effect will be added to the Naval Appropriation bill by the Senate. It is probable also the committee has recommended it that the Secretary of the Navy will be authorised to call any bluff that Carnegie and the Bethlehem Steel Co. may attempt to put up by refusing to make a contract to furnish the armor plate at the price named, by establishing a govern ment plant for the making ot armor plate. President Cleveland ought to be getting used to having his vetoes overruled by Congress by this time. The bill making changes in the Eastern Judicial district of Texas, which had the support of the entire Texas delegation in Congress, is now a law notwithstanding a veto, and the House this week passed two private pension bills over vetoes. It is not surprising that Mr. Cleveland should have remark ed that he had no influence with Congress. A delegation of Michigan lumber men who think their interests will best be "protected" by not increas ing the duty on white pine lumber are in Washington to protest against the increase which the re publicans of the Ways and Means Committee have decided to make. Tbese gentlemen do net hesitate to state their reasons for opposing nn increase of duty on white pine lumber. They own extensive slumping privileges in Canada and fear that if the duty is increased, in addition to their having to pay the duty, the Canadians may as a re taliation for the increase of duty impose a crown tax on 6tumpg privileges. Another proof that th whole principle of "protection" is based upon individual self-interest without regard to general giod, The latest estimate is that lb number of gold democratic post masters, whose nominations will be left unacted upon by the Senate will exceed 200. Some ef these were recess appointments and are now filling the offices to which they were nominated, but they will have to step out aa soon as McKinley nominate! their auccessors and the Senate confirms tbem, and the silver Senatora will do their pan towards preventing delay io inch cases'. InterWin Ten Picture of Life in the Northwest. PiiUre to y;urelf a w;U waste of snow, wir.ii beaten anJ bliziar farrowed until the vast expanse resembles a billowy w bite sea. The '"rigid air, blowing half a gale, if filled with needle-like snow aud the ice crystals which p'.in the Srbh Lke the bites of poism-us in 8ect!, and sift through the finest crevics. The sun, low down in the southern horizon, lu..ks like a frozen globe, with halves, crescent? and bright prismatic bars encircling it. Great herdes of range cattle, which rove at will and thrive on the nourishing grasses indigenous to the noithern slope, wsnder aim lessly here and there, or more frequently drift with the wind in vain attempts to find food and shel ter; moaning in distress from cold and hunger, their noses hung with bloody icicles, their legs galled and bleeding from breaking the hard snow crut as they travel they ap peal ta the hardest hsart for pity. It is sure death for human beings to be caught out in one of these bliziards, with the temperature down to 30 or 50 degrees below zero unless rescue is speedy. Yet, such conditions frequently exist in thij latitude, as they did for fifteen days in November, 1&90, when it seemed at if the elements had con spired to bring about another ice age, and annihilate every living thing. Would the "ebinook" never come? The wind veered and backed, now howling as if in derision, and anon becoming calm, as if in con templation of the desolation on the face of nature, while the poor dumb animals continued their ceaetleee tramp crying with starvation and pain. At last, on December 1, about the hour of sunset, there was a change which experienced plains men interpreted as favorable to the coraingofthe warm southwest wind. At sunset the temperature was only 13 degrees, the air scarcely in rao'ion, but occasionally seemed to descend from overhead. Over the mountains in the southwest hung a great bank of black clouds, dark and awesome, whose wide expanse was unbroken by any line of light; only at the upper edge the curled and serrated cloud, blown into tatters by wind, was seen to be the advance courier of the long-prayed tor "clunooH." ilow eagerly we watched its approach. How we strained our hearing for the first welcome sight of the gentle breath! But it was not until 11:35 p. m. that the first influence was felt. First, a puff of heat. Summer-like in cotnpai iion to n hat had existed for two weeks, and we run to our in strument shelter to observe the temperature. Up goes the tempcra-i ture, 34 degrees in seven minutes. Now the wind has come with a twenty five mile velocity. Now the cattle stop traveling, and with muzzles turned towards the wind, low with satisfaction. Weary with two weeks' standing on their feet they lie down on the snow, tor they know that their salvation has come; that now their bodies will not freeze to the ground. The wind increases in strength and warmth; it blows now in one steady roar; the temperature has risen to 38 degrees, the great ex panseofsnow, 30 inches deep oa the level, is becoming damp and honeycombed by the hot wind, and we retire satisfied that the "ebinook" is a genuine and lasting one. Twelve hours afterwards there are bare, brown hills everywhere; the plains are covered with floods of water. In a few days the wind will evaporate the moisture and the roads will be dry and hard. Were it not for the "chinook" winds the northern slope country would not bq habitable, nor could domestic animals survive the winter. A. B. Coe inUoited States Weather Review. Changing Pennsylvania's Capital, With the r cent destruction by fire of Pennsylvania's State build ings at narrisourg ua uku stronger sentiment apparently than ever to mve the seat of the govern ment to Philadelphia; and a bil, has been introduced in the As- sernbly to give effect to that pur pose. The location of the government at a place like Harrisburg no doubt bad ground to stand upon in days gone by, before the State was cross ed and recrossed by railways. Geo graphically it was a central point; and ia ante-railroad times it wat more easily acceisible from the different pti of the State then a j place iik rhi'.adelphia, aituaud ti tan out-of-the-way orner, wa. ! Bat, aioce the intrjJjcioa oi railroads, Philadelphia has beer the natural capital of the State; ar.d the reasons which weuld substitutt a splendid city like the City oi Brotherly Love aa the seat of the State government forn antiquated and objure village Lke Harrisburg ire overwhelming. Philadelphia can now be reached from almost alt points in the State more quickl than Harrisburg can. It is a great ity, with hotel accommodations equal to th ise of any of the other large cities of the world, and a ith all these civilizing adjuncts of ad vanced social life which interest and improve visitors as well a. residents. In Philadelphia the sessions of the Legislature wocl i have an attention from the people that they never have bad and never could have in a spot like Harris bur?; and nothing holds legislators so well np to the mark as public attention tocused on their work at close range. - Lieut. Gov. Lyon, whose home is at Pittsburg at the other side ol the Slate from Philadelphia, would like to see the capital changed to Philadelphia. He says: "Philadelphia has a fully equip ped, pid and thoroughly reliable tire department, which Harrisburg has not Philadelphia is also more accessible'.. One can leave Pitts burg at night, lake a sleeper, and pet up in tim for breakfast at Philadelphia. The plan of keeping the capital at Harrisburg because it is nearly the centre of the State, geographically speaking, is purely sentimental, and should not be considered for a moment under present conditions. "The people of Philadelphia would do handsomely by the State in furnishing ground and funds for the construction of building I have no doubt that Philadelphia would be satisfied to give the State from twenty to thirty acres for the State building It would not be i.rpri-ing, either, if the Phila delphia citizens and councils should propose to gi ve the State $1,000,000 for the work of construction. "It is ridiculous to ta k of re modeling and reconstructing the old building I am also opposed ' a cheap liffiir. Let us have a fireproof building of the finest ma terials, that will stand a century, if we have anything at all." The chances are, therefore, that the L'gislature of Pennsylvania will pass the bill to submit to the people at an early election the question of changing the seat of the State government as indicated; and, the law p.issed, there is very little doubt hut that the people would readily rutify the prcpo.-ed change "Albert Koss" the WcII-Khowu Author, Insane. Linn Boyd Porter, the famous "Alberl Ross," whose books have attained a greater sale in this coun try than those of any other author in the world, is insane. He has been removed to a private asylum. His physician is trying to have the i-t ry suppressed on the grounds that if Mr. Porter should see the story in print that the shock would pn.bably kill him. The strange nconsisiency oi air. rorter e in sanity is bis hallucination that he is financially embarrassed and practically on the road to the poor house, when, as a matter of fact, he is one of the wealthiest authors in America. Every cent of his money he has made himself, the foundation of the fortune coming from the proceeds of the sale of his books and the remainder from his successful manipulation of this money in his extensive real estate transactions. Mr. Porter maintains a magnificent estate in Cambridge, where his family, including two beautiful daughters, are leaders in society in the Uiuversiry City. In his stables Mr. Porter has some of ihe finest blooded horees in this section of the city. Mr. Porter's health has not been good lately. ;ind he was much upset from .the published rumor of his death. The members of the family refuse to talk for publication. His strange hallucination had taken sueh ahold upon him that he Bold some valu able horses for a mere song, and ittempted to sacrifice other proper- ty at ruinous prices. Mr. rorter was, not many years ago, a com liositor on a Boston daily, when his famous book, "Thou Shalt Not," brought him notoriety and sudden iffiuence. The South haa 8nly begun to manufacture its raw products. Its natural advantages are in every way superior to the West. In a few more years it will be a commercial absurdity to tell cotton to New England instead of to the mills that adjoin the fields where it is grown. LosisviUeCtmrieTJoarnal, Hafety in Fdaeation. I'r. J. L M Curry, agent fcr the j Peibjdy and Slater tunJs, per haps given more attention to the 'abject a! education than any other ce man in the South, and ia pur nit of his du'ies has visited the capitals uf the Southern States His visits are generally timed to meet the Legislators, by whuui he is always warmly welcomed, to Mississippi at least, and generally manages 3 get ia a speech cr two that is brimful of good bard sense and it liable information as to whai is being done along educational lines, bnt more especially concern ing the distribution of the great fanJs of which he has the manage ment. Dr. Curry ' hjppened ' over at Raleigh, N. C, the other day, and in his address to tbeTar- Heel soIods look them to taek on the average length of their public school term, which is only two months. He very correctly told tbem that no child could learn or teacher instruct in that short time, and madd a very urgent appeal for a larger appropri ation to tbe public school fund, longer tenns and better teachers During his rpeech Dr. Curry beard a man in the audience say to another: "We are all in favor of education, but we are too poor to make better schools," and turning upt n Lim the apcuker said: " In the name of God (and I say it reverently), you are too poor not to educate. I would like to burn that into your consciences. If you do not rducate you will remain poor until Gabriel's horn blows " Dr. Curry told his hearers that he was no politician, and would express no opinion on the great questions that have divided parties, but said he: "Moral character is above all of the standards of gold and silver. While you are debating the ratio between gold and silver, I want you to consider the ratio between edu cation and illiteracy." He declared that no man ought to be allowed to put a ballot in a box who could not read said ballot and who did not understand what he was voting for. lie commended very highly the constitution of those States wherein the educational test is required, pointing out that in Massachusetts, where the white people are almost the only voters, education is insisted upon, and lhat in the South, because of con. ditit ns peculiar to the section, the qu :ilnication8 iioulii bo urged lor all it is worth. Clarion-Ledger. From the fact thai certain county papers are opposing the Loud bill. fir restricting and preventing the abuses of the second class mail matter carriage, we judge that there is some misunderstanding of the puipose and provisions of the said bill. It does not aim at or affect newspapers at all. In the way of correcting such misapprehension, and of removing opposition to what we deem a most meritorious meas ure, the following extracts from the report of the postmaster general are published: "Of the 3-18,988.648 pounds of second-class matter handled during the year 52,318.318 pounds were "county" lree matter that is. "newspapers, onp copy to each sut scriber in the county where same are printed in whole or in part, and published" -which is carried free in the mails. This grant ot free transmission is of longstadingu and rests on grounds of public policy which I have no disposition lo question. So, likewise, the granting of nominal and losing rates for the transmission through the mails of legitimate newspapers and periodicals may be assumed to be a deliberate policy of congress in view of the legislation of 1874, 1879 and 1885, though it is doubt ful if congress anticipated the im mense loal involved in the grant of the 1 cent a pound late in 1885 But the virtual concession of t ie franking privilege to publishers if serial libraries, of sample editions for advertising purposes, to news agents for the return of unsold peri odicals, to fraternal societies for circulating publications of a mere advertising character, to 'house organs'and other advertising sheets, to publishers acting as agents ol advertisers or purchasers in send ing to addresses furnished by the latter, and to similar private enter prises, can be defended on n ground of public policy, and is nothing short of a perversion lo private interests of a public service, supported by its legitimate patrons, and, 8o far as its deficits are con cerned, by burdens on the general taxpayers." Senators Hill and Turpie were the only Senators present who did not take part in the joint session to count the electoral vote. When the Senate, headed by Vice-President Stevenson, marched over to the House chamber thoso two gentle men remained at their desks writing letters. Tbey escaped a very dull three.(joarterg cf an hour thereby. College Dots. following -Whiuier" pr. -wa carried cut on Friday Th gram Last: Memory Gems by each member of the Society.

Conwell, who recently returned from Cuba, asked a boatmau in Havana if be thought the rebels would win. "I canuot say," replied the man, "bul I know that people about here hope that they will. But you see that for so many years no native Cuban has been allowed to carry firearms that there are no guns here. We can't get hold of them." A loyalPpaniart', an old retired lawyer, did not see what the United States wanted of Cuba when they refused Hawaii, and added that the whole adminis tration of Cuba neded reform. Continuing he said: "I should say that w e wanted a limited monarchy ot our own, under the care of Spain. Every educated man and every unedtcatcd man worth not les than $500 ought to vote, and no man should hold office, except the Governor General, who has not made Cuba his permanent home." Rev. Conwell adds: "I found that the insurgents have adopted a system of signals as complete lis a telegraph, and, by means of fires as beacons on the mountain tops, keep each other informed of Wry ler's whereabouts day by day. There are some indications that a row is brewing in the Populist camp which will result in a split in that party. Washburn, who is the leader of ihe Populists in the East orn States, has arranged for what he is pleased to term an informal and unofficial conference at Mem phis on the 22nd, at which rceo. lutions will probably be adopted recommending that the Populist party sever tho alliance with the free silver Democrats and lie publicans and go it alone for the next four years on its own issues Secretary Edgerton of the National Populist committee, SenatotlJutler and other leaders of the party in the South and West are bitterly opposed to Washburn's plan and there will be two conferences which in the end will result in a tug of war between the two wings, and a vast amount of discord and division. The extreme or middle-of-the-road element will go with Washburn. while the more conservative Popu lists will follow the lead of such men as Allen, Butler and Edgerton. who favor an alliance of all the forces that advocate free silver principles.
