We notice in sovcml exchanges, and especially in tho Now York Farmer, articles condemning the passage of laws preventing fishing by other means than rod, hook and lino. Wo are in sympathy with pro per laws.rogulnting fishing. There is a largo class of utterly irrosjxmsible persons, which if not restrained would soon depopulate every stream, regardless of profit to themselves.or to tho rights of others. It is a fact hero tlmt boforo tho sooBon opens for trout fishing, tho strooniB have , boon invaded, by thorn who disre. gard tho laws, and aro only a law unto themselves. Tho honest sports man waits until tho time is up only to find that ho has lx;en anticipated, and he must take the leavings of the vagabond who did not wait. If eel weirs, fish baskets, or pots would be honestly constructed, and so usod as not to destroy everything in the rivers, thoy might lo made a source of profit and benefit. Tho cupidity and rocklessnoss of those who oroct these traps generally load them to violate tho provisions of tho law, and thus they become on injury to the public interest, by their dostruc tivenesa of small fish. Wo do not know how it may bo in other places, but we do know that fish wardens may bring reproach on the very laws they are supposed to enforce, and thus render not only themselves, but the law obnoxious. What we want is a law which while it will protect the fish, will also enable them to be taken when of proper size by moans which will not kill everything in tho waters. Then we want wardens against whom the sus picion will not attach, that they are tending bar when they should be employed in tho proper discharge of their duties, or winking with one eye at a violation, and with the other alert to discover and punish gome violator who has no pull. There is a golden mean in this matter, which would satisfy, and it can be attained. Pass laws not illiberal in spirit to. ward either the public or the fisher man, and then appoint wardens who have no favors to bestow, or appeti tes to restrain them, in the equal, and exact discharge of their duty in seeing that the law is rigidly and in- discriminatingly enforced. "gETTTNU RICH. In 1895 the United States uniorted about two hundred million dollars worth of products all of which we could have produced ourselves Farm animals, breadstuffs, eggs . flax, fruits, hay, hops, oils, provi sions, seeds, sugar, vegetables, and of wool over thirty throe million dol lars worth. And we paid for it all in gold. Add to this the amount we paid to foreign shippers to carry our produce across the ocean and what we paid them to haul things here and the interest we puid them on borrowed money and dividends on stocks, and it amounts to over six hundred million dollars. Three fourths of the above is paid by American farm products. There will soon be a call for unoth er popular loan. Farmers haul some of your Democratic, dollar wheat to market, and take a few thousand dollars worth of bond,, If yon can 1cnt tho syndicate and tret them. ' MARU1I TERM OF COURT. We publish this week, nnoffloially the trial, argument and jury Hutu for tho March term of Court, beginning tho 16th. The rules of Court says liogo 3(1, boo. 2. " The trial and ar gument lists shall bo pub lished for throe successive weeks in two newspapers published at the county seat ; which publication shall lie miflloiont notice to all concerned except when an Act of Assembly or rule of court shall direct other no tices. " The act of 1885 snys commissioners shnll furnish printed court colanders and trial lists for the use of the offi cers and attorneys of said court. Does not say In lieu of other pub. lication " Tim " Campbell said " what's tho constitution among friends, " and what Is a rule of court among economical county commiss ioners any way. KC'ENE IN COMMISSIONERS OF FICE. Enter oommissionor.loquocionsly. Buy is that blonkety blank I'ikk County Press hero ? What does it say now? Well I don't care a blank- blank if it does, the people who will voto mo don't rood that paper any how. " "Boy fellows have you hoard the story about the two ladies. fells it.

" ' Enter on the minutos commissi oners met and proceeded to transact miscellaneous business" " Now lets adjourn this is work enough for one day." Exit, to treasuer's office with chock. Rumor has it that some aspiring DeiiKx'rats in this county ore shy. ing their castors in the Representa tive ring. It is stated that John M. Van Aukin, of Matamoras ex Trea- surer.ex-Dcputy collector, ex-Assis tant State Libraian, and F. A. Kess- ler ex-Sheriff of the same place have announced themselves, Miles C, Rowland, of Lackawaxen, ex-Asses sor, when approached blushingly keeps silent, E. F. Peters, of Lehman is said to be on the anxious seat, and there may be more in this little nock o' woods, who aro like brer rabbit " lying low. Come out gentlemen, and train, tho Republicans of this county are expecting to give you all a Fitzsimmons tap at the proper timo. Now is tho time, if you have not done so already, to see that all farm machinery is well cloanod and in good working order. Don't delay this until you want to uso it. Shrewd farmers are beginning to look around for a few sheep. With tho advent of a Republican admini stration, and protection to wool, sure to como, they know it will be a pro fi table industry to raise them. Phosphorus I Wir. Tho Cuban insurrectionists are de. torminod tlmt the planter shall not grind his sugar cane while the war is on, and if he attempts to do it his plantation is to be burned to the ground. The idea is to paralyze trado, show the power they wield, and perhaps secure the Intervention of a strong power. Undor any cir cumstances it means ruin to most of the planters, whose crops are now ripe for cutting and very combusti ble. But the interesting part is the me thod the Cubans are said to have adopted which is distinctly novel. A small piece of phosphorus coated with wax is fastened to a snake's tail, and the creature left loose to make its way among the cane. The sun molts the wax and ignites the phos phorus, and the business is done, Military protection or other efforts are claimed to be unavailing in the facoof such a formidable foe. Popu lar Science. To be descended of wealth and titles fills no man's head with brains or heart with truth ; those quali ties come from a higher cause. Doing is the great thing. For if, resolutely, people do what Is right, in time they come to like doing it. Ruskin. THE LADIES' COLUMN.

Tho church row at (Vntrevil1o is as suming: vnst proKirtions. Hero is an epitome of the whole story. In May lastmrly stories were in circula tion reflecting tiiion the reputation of the Itev. C. W. Dcming. Charges were preferred ngninst dim before the) ljuiirtorly ConferentiC by J. V. Major and John lounirs, both trustees, and meinlx-is of the Cen treville Church, but the presiding officer Rev. A. A. Craig refused to entertain tho charges. Mr. Doming called a meeting for tho eltxiioti of trustees on hob. 14. At that meet ing trustee Young called the meet ing to order and proceeded to nomi nate and unanimously elected J. V. Major, chairman, and W. 0. Hursh secretary. Mr. liemitig objected and was ruled out of order bv the chair roHatedly,but utterly refused to oltey the chair, and ho and his party created so much noise that he and party went to the vestibule, and nominated a list of trustees and up on re-entering tho church proodcd to elect, without secretary or chair man. Trostco Young had onnoun. cod a meeting in the church on Feb. 18, to fully explain all charges against Mr. Deiuing, but before the hour set, Mr. Dinning announced di vine services, and not wishing a col lision Mr. Young and friends went to the residence of J. V. Major and honied the Minister over the coals in groat shapo at the sumo timn offer ing Mr. Dcming 75 dollars with which to prosecute J. J. VaOsickle for slander, but the Reverend gen tleman declines to accept it. Mr. Deming's friends put a lix-k on tho church do jr to prevent tho trustees from holding a business meeting on the 25th when Trustees Major and Young entered the church by a win dow and removed the look and trans acted their business. Frank Lay- ton, the third trustee, sworo out a warrant the next day and Major and Young were taken to Newton where they gave bond for the April term ofoourt. A social was announced again but did not take place. On the 29th Major and Young went to the church and finding an addition al look on tho dtxir quitely smashed the lix-k and entered tho edifice. No arrest for that. On March 6th the social was again announced to be held in the church, but Lay ton, Bonsly and Lodor borricodod the church so effectually that entrance was impossible, and yet that social was for paving for in suranco and repairs of that church. This row will eventually disrupt the church as evorylxxly is taking sides for or against Mr. Doming. But why don't Mr. Doming prosecute for slander? Our trustees met on tho 3rd and employed a teacher for tho famous Fisher school in tho person of Alon zo Dopuo. Our sehixil law soys all teachers must have a certificate at the timo of hiring.hut that mado no difference in this case. Changes of tenants will bo numer ous in this town this spring.

Soap which " floats " is being con stantly paraded for its excellence, but if a grocer attempted to sell su gar on the ground of its having the same property he would soon lose his customers. You can try this and see how you like it. Take some lumps of sugar, and dip them for a moment into a weak collodion solu tion, such as photographers use, Then expose thorn to the air for a few days, so that all the ether in the mixture will evaporate, and leave only the thin envelope of collodion benind.

(Spoclnl Cijrrespnnrtenre to thn Pwtss.) 1-ATTOV, N. J., March 10. MR. KimtoR: Having always been, and nxppct.ltift to remain a permanent oltlien of tills community, and having neither gone to war, nor had my scalp lifted yet at this ilatn, 1 think my claim that. I try and Igh lmth shies of the question of the day fairly and reasonably, niny be. con ceded. We am now In full view of a church war, and none others aro known that equal them for bitterness. You may le- lluvn nio when I say that In thorn rows their gun are ranged to rover the whole ground, and .lucky Is ho who can keep on neutral territory. Then; are principles In volved that make this eonllUt of Interest to the public, and 1 excuse, myself on this ground for bringing the facts lx'forn them. During the early summer a scandal was bruited abroad reflecting unpleasantly up on tho character of Kcv. C. W. Dcming, pastor of the M. K. Church at. Ccntrevllhi. This would havo posxlhly died out had the pastor not commenced upon and aired It fri-ely from the pulpit, with bitter rcfloo tlons tijKin, and threat of prosecution against those who had exposed hi unmlo Istorlnl conduct. Tho explanation from the pulpit a well a at other time and place develoxd m:h glaring lnconalsten- les that It set Messrs. John Young and John V. Major, monitor and trusteed of the churoh.to investigating which reaulted In their preferring charge agal nt their pas tor. Thoe charge were adroitly evaded by the pastor transferring the bunion of meet ing them upon the board of trustecs.and by them, in Indefinitely shelving them. Mr. Youngs wishing the public to hav"e the re sult of hi Investigations annminoed that he would deliver a lecture upon the sub ject at the ehurch on Feb. Kith. The pas tor evidently not wishing the light turned on, called an annual trustee meeting for the 14th. The meeting organised on the hour, J. V. Major waa elected chairman, W. C. Hursh, secretary, both unanimously, J. Van Pickle in plaoe of Francis Lay- ton, J. V. Major and John Young to uo- coed themselves wore nominated. The pastor thereupon made vigorous protest, claiming it a his meeting, and stating that it was called to prefer charges against tho old board. Tho chairman ruled the pastor out of order on the ground that this was an annual meeting according to the notice, and charges oouid not therefore be entertained. The nomination mentioned being seconded were carried by a vote of All to 10. Tho pastor then under protest from chairman placed William C. Drake In nomination who was defeated. The pastor urged Mr. Drake to accept the chair anyway but he declined to act stating that he was in the minority. The pastor and alxuit a down of hi adherents then se ceded and went Into the hall where ar ranging a program hastily, they returned. Tho minority of not more than a dozen nominated the pastor a chairman and he putting only the affirmative voto declared himself elected. Ho then proceeded to name Ave or six of Ida friend n trustees, calling only for tho afllrmativo vote and then declaring each one elected. There was no secretary elected and tho negative vote wa not called. After the return of thu pastor and the minority from the hall, tho entire proceedings were under em phatic protest f mm tho regular chairman, and the majority, whose rights were being ruthlessly rixle over by tho pastor and his few determined adherents and amid great disorder. It was a most unseemly xrtjulo. Kvcn our f reoholdcr who should havo main tained a becoming dignity made a very un pleasant exhibition of himself In the melee and came near precipitating a free fight. Ho is hardly excusable under tho plea of Intoxication, and wo aro happy to say there was no other case of the kind observable. Tho not 1(50 for tho trustee meeting being illegal, tho whole proceeding is obviously void. Tho old board therefore hold until tho annual mooting for the election of trustees In May, although the pastor claims his as the legal trustees. The lecture which all this was to prevent, was still sanctioned by the majority of the trustees and assured to take place in the church. Tho pastor now turned his attention to heading it off In some, other manner. He Interceded with Sheriff Qunderman but the sheriff turned a deaf ear. He then se cured Constable Dlllistln, of Branchvillo, and prepared to hold religious servioes at the same hour and plaoe as was advertised for the lecture. Mr. Young and his friends being law-abiding citizens and averse to engaging in an unseemly row, or resort to force as the pastor and his friends anti cipated, quietly adjourned to the house ot John V. Majors where an able lec ture was delivered to fully one hundred people. The charges before made were re iterated, with others of like degree. Many corroborative acts, with the equivocations of pastor Deming were clearly stated and the climax was reached when the lecturer assorted that he believed that justice and right would prevail, that the guilty should be punished and the Innocent vindicated, and to that end there was a subscription in his hands to the amount of ITS, which upon proper guarantee that the pastor would use it to prosecute his accusers and clear his character he could draw at will. Messrs. Majors and Youngs followed this later, advertised social at the church Feb. 39, to raise money to pay for insur ance on the church, now past due, and which Mr. Majors as trustee had given his note for, any surplus to be used for the benefit of the church. The pastor and his friends put a new lock on the door. Trus tees Majors and Youngs entered after us ing the only key that is the property of the church, (the other being a private key held and owned by Mrs. John Snider,) presum ably the now lock was broken when Majors and Youngs entered. At least they were arrested under the in stigation of the pastor and Francis Lay- ton. They gave bonds to appear at April term of court where it will be settled who are the trustees and other matter relating to it will also receive attention. The so cial was not held however on account of the severe storm, but was adjourned to March 6th. On that date the pastor and his friends barricaded the dour with heavy timbers, put on a new lock and strongly Intrenched themselves within. Of course, they held tho fort. The social wa again adjourned without day. On the 7th there was a little stir as usual preliminary to candidates for the spring flection. The pastor's friends smelling a mice held the fort again Saturday iilght, but no effort was on foot to enter, apparently a false alarm. Tho guilty flee when no man pur- sueth. It socms evident that at the bot torn of all the evil lies this fact that the pastor's end will be gained if the in vestigation can be fought off until after conference meets.

Kintnor in last weeks (falsetto airs his unfortu nate remark olxiut tho Tnppnntown iron bridge at great length, but foils to tell his roaders what tho remark was. His article with the remark omitted is somewhat like tho play of Iliimlet with Hamlet left out. It dxis I fear haunt his droams, and like Bonquo's ghost it will not down. At tho close of a conversation as to the cost of that noted bridge, the brilliant remark was mado as fol lows. " It makes no jmrticular dif ference to mo for my tax is always the some, one dollar. " It would have boon much wiser,nover to have said it, but having said it 'twould also have been much wiser to have honestly owned it. One difficulty like ono lio leads to another, and genoraly each succeeding one, as Mr. Kintner's experience must teach him loods deoix?r into the mire. Mr. Kintner says in his affidavit that ho told mo on Feb. 4 that ho had mado tho remark quoted, in Nowton, that is true. Ho also says I told him on Feb. 4 that the remark was addressed to .Daniel Ctinnor.ond that I overheard it. That is not tho truth. I did not tell him so. He made the remark at tho close of a conversation with Messrs Carmor and Evcritt, as he was turning to leave the polling place, and I again repeat that I have not stated to Mr. Kintner, nor to any other person that the remark was addressed to any particular person. Mr. Kint ner evidently realizes that unloss this untruth was included in his statment the affidavits of Messrs Carmer and Evoritt in which neither recollects nor remembers anything would lack both point and relevancy. Mr. Kintner further says he did not make such remark in his official capacity as Freeholder, about the Montague bridge. Well then by in ference he made it in an unofficial way. I never claimed it as his offi cial utteranoe. No indeed, I will admit that he waa off duty as well as a little off otherwise just at that particular time. I will also admit, if Mr. Kintner claims it, that he may not himself remember that he made the remark quoted, at Tut tie's Corner. It waa election day, a day of liberal libations, and his friends and all who know him well, will therefore make due and liberal al lowance, as I do, for any lock of memory on his part as to what oc curred on that day.
