One by oue of the reciprocity con ventions that were arranged for in the McKinley tariff act, and which it has been the care of the administration to conclude so far us this republic could conclude them, are maturing as fast as time and circumstances permit. The Spanish convention touching Cuban and American products after consid erable discussion of details, is an nounced. Not to recite here the par ticulars of the agreement it suffices to say that Spain yields to us, so far as the Spanish West Indies are concerned, her trade in flour, beans, olives—prac tically a monopoly in these articles— in exchange for the privilege of a free market here for the Antilles sugar,mo lasses, coffee, hides and a reduction of the tea duty. It may be that the Spanish manufacturers of flour, pro ducers of the other articles effected, aud exporters of all these products from the mother country will object with exceeding vigor ; indeed, they murmured at the first hint of the pro posed agreement. And as to the Span ish government it was a choice be tween alienating the »Spanish West In dies or offending interested hut not dominant classes of idividualsat home. Who will say that Premier Canovas del Castillo did not make valuable, nay necessary, concessions to the unity and welfare of the Spanish monarchy ? On the American side Secretary Blaine and »Special Commissioner Fos ter of the State Department deserve commendation in including the affair on a basis satisfactory to tho American i interests. or | "There is absolutely nothing new in j the political field," said »Senator Wm. j D. Chandler to your correspondent ; recently. "No, there isn't even any I gossip as to presidential possibilities or impossibilities. Personally I am an administration man and expect to give jj j president Harrison my hearty support, j There is a strong sentiment in the oast and. all over the country favorable to ; Blaine. This sentiment is growing, j but, as I understand the situation, Mr. »Blaine will not allow hi? name to used. What do I think of the appli cation of civil service reform princi ples to the Navy Yard? Why its a good thing. I do not understand that Secretary Tracy is going to call upon the civil service commission to supply him with foremen or mechanics, but what lie proposes is commendable. know there is a law which pro vides that no employe of a navy yard shall be removed because of -his po litical convictions nor be appointed unless he is competent and skilled. On that statute Secretary Tracy may build up a system which may he pro ductive of great good. Yes, I was aware of the existence of that law when I was Secretary of the Navy and I was governed by it. I never removed a man because* he was a Democrat or appointed o r >e because lie was a Republican. It , is a good law and should he enforced." Bel va A. Lockwood was the first woman to ride a tricycle down the Avenue. This was several years ago, and at that time people raised their hands in holy horror, and said that Betvft had eternally disgraced her sex. but the pioneer in female bicycle and trycicle riding only laughed, and said that the time would soon come when women would be seen riding up and down the avenues as gracefully as boys and men. Then, of course, the idea was hooted; at, and Belva was placed on the crank list. To-day the scones which arc Witnessed on our pub lic thoroughfares give evidence that what she predicted has been realized, and some of the most respected ladies of the city find no finer exercise than gliding over the smoothly concreted streets on bicycles. What if the Fifty-first Congress did appropriate for public purposes over one billion dollars ? Criticism based merely upon the amount of the appro priation will fall on the ground. The sum is large, but the country can spend it and not feel it, and it is indi cation of the national wealth and prosperity that this is the case. At tacks upon the appropriations by the recent Congress to be effective, must be aimed, as in other years when the amount has been smaller, at the folly and extravagance of particular appro propriations for particular purposes. If all the expenditures by the recent Congress were wise and for the public welfare, as is the case in almost all in stances, the larger the amount thus expended within the national resour ces the better the Record of the Con gress would be. of oc to the the in re ex Y i; on Morning New«. The New Divorce Law. The bill for the amendment of the divorce htwW this Estate, - which introduced iivthe Ht nate by Mr Pill ing, and promptly passed by that body, passed the House of Represen tatives last Thursday for the second time, and upon the completion of the usual formalities will be a part of the law of this State. This bill passed the second time because a reconsideration had been curried, in order to afford an opportunity to consider an unknown amendment. The amendment, how ever, evidently did not appear and af ter waiting an ample length of time for it the House passed the bill again» and so settled the matter. The efleet of this new law will be to relieve Delaware at one stroke from those persons who come here ft er states in order to procure divorces from our courts for reasons which would not secure a full divorce for ou gli ? Otll them at home. Hereafter ihe.se per sons will bring the divorce laws of their own states with them to Dela ware, and courts will not graut di vorces to sojourners here from other states except upon the terms of the law of tho State where the applicant was living when the alleged cause or causes for divorce occurred. Since these persons leave their own states in order to escape the more rigorous statutes in force there, it follows that they will no longer come to Deluwf and that we are relieved from what was a great and growing scandal. p. Every Evening. For the position of receiver of taxes and county treasurer, it would be both graceful and proper on the part of the governor to appoint the outgoing county treasurer, provided he be qual ified and worthy. The bill aims to lake the office out of politics and to make its incumbent a purely fiscal agent ; and in doing this it necessarily legislates the present county treasurer out of office. It does this not to change the man but to change the system. Such being the case, it the man is of the right size to fit the new place he has a strong claim upon it; a claim which very many good Demo crats in New castle county recognize the rightfulness of. One month ago there would have been a great outcry if the Five Commissioners bill had been so amended as not to go into ef fect until after the next general elec tion. Yet within one week this very thing bus been done and that, too, with I he (-ndoreemont of the Democratic I' 7 < in or an masses.^ Aud, if the governor finds the outgoing county treasurer usure up to the standard of re ceiver of taxes und county treasurer, he can put him there in the confident assurance that the same real Democ racy which insisted upon justice, being done toward the Republican commis in doing treas on to sioners will hack him up equal justice by the Republic be'urer. a as At the the Fourth of July Excursion to Gettysburg via Pennsylvania Railroad.

This preparation strengthens the scalp, promotes the growth hair, restores the natural color to gray and faded hair, and renders it soft, pliant, aud glossy. "We have 1 1 hesitation in pronouncing Ayer's Hair Vigor uuequaled for dressing the hair, and we do this after long experl ln its use. This preparation preserves the hair, cures dandruff and all diseases of the scalp, makes rough and brittle hair soft and pliant, and prevents baldness. While it is not a dye, those who have used the Vigor say it will stimulate the roots and color glands of faded, gray, light, and red hair, changing the color to A Rich Brown black. It will not soil tho pillow a pocket-handkerchief, and is al ways agreeable. All the dirty, gummy hair preparations should be displaced at Ayer's Hair Vigor, and thousands who go around with heads looking like 'the fretful porcupine' should hurry to tho nearest drug ■tore and purchase & bottlo of the Vigor."—^ The Sunn}/ South, Atlanta, Ga.
