He was down on the program to respond to the toast of "Democracy," and covered the full range of political questions before the people ex cept silver. He dismissed that question in this manner: "I am asked as ofteu as once a week whether I have abandoned silver. To that I answer, no. But suppose I should abandon silver, what difference would it make? I am not the people, '^'hen the abandon that question, it will be an issue no longer. The people make the istue, not the man. No man is greatet than his party."  Mr. Danfcrth, the chairman of the Democratic State committee of New York, commenting on this declaration, says it shows that Mr. Bryan appreciates the importance of the new issues, and secures a united Democratic party in all States of the East. Further, says Mr. Dan-forth:  "It is all that is needed to bring the party together throughout the country and insure a Democratic victory. Mr. Bryan takes exactly the position that the Democrats of the East have b jen hoping all along that be would take, and if he maintained that position I have no doubt that he will be nominated by acclamation, and -will have a harmonious party back of him in the campaign."

Yet there are some city fathers in that state who still sneeze at municipal ownersqip.  American beer and whisky advertisements take up the greater part of the space in Manila newspapers. Possibly the administration has undertaken the task of bringing the savage Filipino to bay, with a liberal supply of John Barleycorn. And still the cry goes forth, that this is a war for humanity's sake.  The Attorney General of Texas has instituted a suit against an alleged medical college with a view to having its charter forfeited. The ^'college" was iacorporated eleven years ago. Most of its teaching was to be done by mail, but the complaint avers that its main purpose was commercial, and that it would sell diplomas at $50 a piece to whoever it chose, informed in the Bcience of medicine or ignorance of  The publisher of a newspaper has one thing to sell and one thing to rent. He has the newspaper to sell, and the space in the columns to rent. Can any one inform us why he should be expected to give away either one or the other? He can do so if he chooses, and he does, as a matter of practical fact, furnish a great deal of space rent free. But it does not follow that he ought to be expected to do it. It ought to be recognized as a contribution exactly as would the giving away of sugar or coffee by the groceryman. But, strange to say, it is not looked upon in that light light at all, yet. every body knows that the existence of a newspaper depends as much on the rent of its pace and the sale of the paper as the merchants success depends on selling his goods instead of giving them away.  ASSEMBLY CLUB DANCE.  Various circumstances hindering its success the assembly club's dance Thursday evening was not a financial success, although all those who attended had a rare good time. This regular yearly dance has always been looked forward to by our young people and much credit is due Secretary Lord in the way he mana ges to show his guests a good time.  ABSOLUTELY GOOD.

Carmel Masons held one of their usual monthly banquets at the Commercial Hotel Thursday evening and from the various re ports they certainly had an enjoyable time. The Weidensauls again covered themselves with glory by immensely pleasing their guests.

The gratifying Intelligence has been received that Thos. H. John ston, former pastor of St. Stephen's Episcopal church, but who for the past three months has been an assistant rector in Christ Church, Wil-liamsport, is to be given a regular rectorship in that city. On June Ist he will assume charge of St. Mary's church a parish with about 200 members, and which is said to have a most promising future.  "All tired out. Can't hardly take another step.
