Washington, April 28. —The director of the mint at Washington has submitted to congress a report on the production of precious metals in the year of 1889. The gold product in the United States was 1.587.000 fine ounces, value 982,800,000, against 933,000,000 in the preceding year. Of the gold products, 931,959,047 were deposited at the mints for coinage and manufacture into bars. The silver product ii approximated at 50,000,000 fine ousels, the commercial value being 946, 550,000, and the coinage value 9646 646,-464, against an estimate product for 1888 of 45,783 632 fine ounces, commercial value. 943 020 OOO and coining value, 958 195 OOO, an increase over 1888 of about 4 216 368 fine ounces, commercial value, 93,730 OOO In addition to the silver products, about 7,000.000 ounces of silver extracted from lead ores imported into the United States and smelted in this country, and over 5.000,000 ounces from base silver bars imported, principally from Mexico, making the total product of our mines smelters and refineries of about sixty-two millions five ounces of silver.

Washington, April. 28—The United States supreme court, through Chief J ii alice Fuller, to-day rendered a decision adverse to the constitutionality of the state laws providing for the seizure of liquor brought into the state in original packages. Such a law the court holds are an interference with interstate commerce. After liquor becomes the property of an importer the state may under its police powers regulate or prohibit the sale. but it has no powers in the absence of express congressional authority to prohibit the transportation of an article from another state and its delivery to the importer. The case in which the decision was made is that of Qua Leisy & Co., of Keokuk, plaintiffs in error, vs. A J Hardin, city marshal of Keokuk. It was brought here on an appeal from tho supreme court of Iowa and this court reverses the decision of the state court The chief justice in delivering the opinion of the court says: The power vested in congress to regulate commerce among the several states is a power to prescribe a rule by which that commerce is to bs governed, and is a power complete in itself, acknowledges no limitations other than those prescribed in the constitution. It is co extensive with the subject on which it acts and cannot be stopped at the external boundary of a state, but must enter its interior and be capable of authorizing the disposition of those articles which it introduces so they may become mingled with the common mass of property within the territory en tered. That ardent spirits are subjects of interstate commerce cannot be denied. Whenever the law of a state amounts es sentially to the regulation of commerce, as it does, when it inhibits directly or indirectly the recript of an imported commodity, or its disposition before it has ceased to become an arride of trade between one state and another, it comes bi con dict with the power, which in this particular has been vested exdusively in the general government, and is therefore void. Undoubtedly it is for the legisla tive branch of the state government to determine whether the manufacture of particular articles of traffic ^rill injuri ously affect the public and it is for congress to determine what measures the state may properly adopt as appropriate are needful for the protection of the public morals, life or safety, but not withstanding it is not vested with the supervisory power over the matters local administration. The responsibility is upon congress so far as the regulation of the interstate commerce is concerned to remove the restriction upon the state in dealing with the imported articles which have not been mingled with the common mass of property therein * * * To concede to the state the power to exdude, directly or indirectly, artides so situated, without discussion sprang up ahd pated in by many senators, the point turning on the question whether the levee system was the correct one, or whether there should not be a combination of the two. Mr. Vest said congress should adopt one system or the other. Mr. Reagan said his investigations had convinced him that the levee system was a failure, as it had proved in the Yellow river of China, where the bad of the river had raised and devastating overflows causing the loss of millions of lives had resulted. The outlet system was the true relief for the overflows of the Mississippi Mr. Barry held that the levee was tho only true system and said nearly every engineer who had anything to do with the river held the same view Mr. Harris had believed in the levee system but the events of the last two months had greatly shaken his confidence in it and he suggested the appointment of a commission of scientists to be charged with the duty of a thorough in vestigation of the subject. Mr. Eustis said steamboat captains were unanimously in favor of the levee system as against the outlet system. Mr. Walthall said as far as he knew the people along the river had absolute faith in the levee system and were gen orally opposed to the outlet. He firmly believed if the outlet system was adopted it would not be long before the Mississippi river would become useless for navigation. After further discussion the business of the morning hour was proceeded with. Mr. Blackburn introduced a bill for the admission of Arizona; referred. The land forfeiture bill was taken up and after some discussion went over without action. The senate bill incorporating the sod ety of the Sons of American Revolution was read Mr. Plumb made some satirical remarks about the efforts to encour age the patriotism “lying around loose in the country,” and moved to amend the bill by providing its privileges be extended to the Grand Army.

It is a state very dear to me. For it is not a stranger’s blood that leaps in my veins in affectionate response to the mention of its name. It was long the home of my kinsmen, many of whom remain to sleep in its soil. A few miles up one of the busy j rivers that hold in their arm this city of commercial victory my mother was born. Therefore I am in part Pennsylvanian; and every foot of Pennsylvania soil and every leaf of laurel about the fame of the state, or the fame of any of its people, is very dear to me. I love it for all that it is in history and for all that it has done in a brave and generous way for country and mankind. It was in Valley the best republican of them all. who died forgiven by the confederates for having been a patriot, but unforgiven by the mugwumps for remaining a republican— is still good enough here in thia state. and it is for me. The republicanism of Thaddeus Stevens, Simon Cameron, Zachariah CHandier and John A. Logan, brave spirits all—God bless their memory—is still good enough republicanism for this state, and it is good enough for every man of honest blood and faith who has any pride in his party at all.

The limit of the cost of the building is $50,000 The message of the president returning without his approval the bill to allow Ogden, Utah, to increase its indebtedness was referred to the committee on territories. The legislative, executive and judicial appropriation bills were passed without division. The house then went into committee of the whole on bills relating to the dis trict of Columbia. The pending bill was for the establishment of Rock Creek park. In the course of the debate Hooker, of Mississippi, alluded to the confed orate graves in Arlington cemetery, on the head boards of which are carved the word ‘-Rebel.” He did not object to this. “Rebel” was not a word of re preach. It only showed they were the men who were led by the second great rebel of America, Robert E Lee, George Washington having been the first. The committee having risen, the Rock Creek park bill was defeated. Mr. Hemphill, of South Carolina, moved a reconsideration and the house adjourned. LIvm Lest at Tamarack Ne. 3, Near Rad Jacket. Marquette, Mich , April 28 —Tamarack shaft No. 3, near Red Jacket, was destroyed Sunday morning. John Williams, pumpman, the only one at the foot of the shaft at the time, was burned to death. In attempting to rescue Williams, John Rowe was suffocated and John Thomas so badly burned that his recovery is very doubtful. Thomas was rescued by John Pentrost, who also brought up the body of Rowe. Williams’ body was not recovered until 3 o’clock this afternoon. The origin of the fire is a mystery, and incendiarism is suspected. AN ACXBX*S KILLED. TMS ‘Pearl of Pekin” Trompe im a Terrible Railroad Wreck. Staunton, Va., April 28.—Early this morning the brake of an express train on the Chesapeake and Ohio railroad became unmanageable and the train ran through the town at ihe rate of eighty miles an hour, tearing away the depot roof. A Pullman sleeper in which there were fifteen members of the “Pearl of Pekin” troupe en route for Baltimore, was derailed and turned over. Of the company, Miss Myrtle Knox died while being taken from the car, Miss Edith Miller had a leg broken and a number of others sustained more or leas serious injuries. The young lady who was killed was formerly a telegraph operator in Kansas City and joined the company not very long ago contrary to the wishes of her father.

O’BRIEN IS DEAD Union Carpenters roaring into Chicago—Riotous Strikers. Chicago, April 28 -The non-union men, in numbers larger than even the strikers care to admit, are pouring into Chicago, and it is believed the master carpenters anticipated the fruitless conferences of Saturday and had agents in other cities securing all the non-union carpenters they could find. Chief of Po lice Marsh says the non union men will be protected in their work if it takes the whole police force. In the meantime the boss carpenters’ association and carpenters’ council are making arrange men ta to put four thousand carpenters to work. A teamster in the employ of one of the largest contractors in Chicago was hauling some carpenters’ tools when he was set upon by a gang of strikers. The horses were cut from the wagon and the teamster dragged to the ground and given a severe beating. The strikers cut the harness to pieces and wrecked the wagon. A local paper says this evening that the trouble between the Carpenters and Builders’ association and the striking employes has become a game of freeze out. The members of the association have informally agreed to entirely bus pend all attempts to carry on business for the present. The few men of other trades now working will be discharged Wednesday night. gomfer’s manifesto. New York, April 28—The general executive board of the American Feder ation of Labor, after a protracted sea aion this afternoon, issued a manifesto signed by President Gompers. After denouncing all who did not yield to his views as enemies of these who work, Gompers closes thus: “The Executive Council of American Federation of Labor having seletced the united brotherhood of carpenters and joiners of America to make the demand for the enforcement of the eight hour day, I ask you to re frain from any sympathetic strikes; rather remain at your work and aid the carpenters and joiners to win in the contest. To the carpenters and joiners my advice is to demand and insist upon the enforcement of the eight hour work day. In the demonstrations to be held on May I turn out in vast numbers and by your presence manifest your unalterable de termination to have the eight-hour work day enforced, though by one trade at a time, yet for all as the ultimate result Allow no one to provoke you, refrain from all violence, and let yonr watchword be the enforcement of the eight-hour work day.

It was at Gettysburg that, the union army with its valor and blood placed the scarlet line of sufficient defense between the exultant rebel arms and the discouraged government at Washington. In all the great crisis of the nation, in every time of every great and honest need of mankind, Penney! yams has proven its humanity, its faith in God, and its love for men. So I say here, as a son returned to tile home of his forefathers, God bless the noble and faithful old commonwealth. THE ADVANCE GUARD OF THE PARTY. If I were going to make a speech in politics, and if I were going to speak for a Republican press, as I have been asked to do here to-night, I would say many plain tilings in this time of plain need. I can speak little for the press, as I have been a truant from my own work for over two years, and hardly feel the title to speak here in its behalf to-night, a1 though my heart has been with it all the time I have been in other works. It needs little speech from any one; it speaks for itself. The Republican news papers of America form, as I believe, the strongest intellectual force on tills contr nent; and it is a party press that is loyal, while independent, unselfish, and always the advance guard of the party. The consideration of the party press daily grows more and more important. We are in a state of transition somewhat as to party methods. Mr. Brice was much derided for his phrase in 1888 that the campaign of that year was an intel!ec tual one, yet his statement was true. Political contests are coming more and more to be fought in the arena of discussion and in the newspaper press. The days of parades and physical demonstra dons are pretty plainly passing away. The torchlight and the rediight as political arguments are being superseded by the intellectual discussion of the press. The campaign of 1892 will be largely a newspaper campaign, and it has already begun. Let us be frank, and say that the Damocrats probably saw this before the Republicans, for any close observer must have seen with interest, and almost astonishment, the marvelous manner in which the Democratic party has been strengthening its lines in the newspaper way in the last few years. It did not use to care much for the newspaper or the magazine—did not use to care as much as tile Republican party for the newspaper and magazine. In latter days it has been beating us in our own game In the large cities of the east they have captured nearly all the magazines and illustrated papers. All the mercenaries of press and literature have been lured into their service. A TRIBUTE TO THE ENEMY. The reinforced democratic press is a startling thing for the republican party to face, and must face it with courage and wisdom. In New York city 1.400, -OOO copies of newspapers are printed daily. Less than 200,000 of them are republican. This means that two-fifths of the republicans of New York city and its environments are reading democratic with your friends better than your enemies. I believe that the pledges of Republican campaigns and platforms can be redeemed better by republicans in office than by democrats. Pledges made by a political party to gain the sovereign approval of the people should be kept in honor by putting in official place the men who believe in the principles and in keeping the pledges. A QUESTION OF SELF-RESPECT. It is not a question of cfficc nor of salary, but of self-respect, for a political party must have its self-respect as well as a man. It has its own self-respect to preserve to the people at large, and just as much it is bound to preserve the selfrespect of the people in its own ranks When it has called upon the republicans everywhere, and the smallest neighborhood in the nation, and republicans everywhere have responded, aud the republicans of the smallest community have done all that men could do and made enemies for its sake, the party selfrespect in that community must be regarded as well as its own self-respect in the nation. It does not matter so much who hold the clerkships in Washington, but in the days of a republican administration every federal office in every neighborhood in the land should be held by a republican. I not only believe in republicanism of the old-fashioned sort but also in Americanism. The American theory is for fre quent changes in all public offices and for every American boy to have an honest chance, whether he-seeks it in poll tics or elsewhere. There is no American sympathy for a life-holding class in of flee aud no real American sympathy attends the present experiment of creating a profession of office-holders. The peo pie’s name is taken in vain by such re formers as have set up in America in la tor years to try to teach the people to be indifferent to public affairs. Here is the point that Americans guard most jeal ously of all things else. They have not watched history in vain. They realize the truth stated by Hallam in his great work on constitutions that “all governments begin as pure democracies drift into oligarchies, and end in monarch ies.” NO USE FOR THE ENGLISH THEORY Americans do not believe in the English theory of superior classes and life holding classes. Their own acts and not the theories of reforms constitute their own opinions. All offices under their own control they change every two years or four, whether in township, city, dis trict, state, or nation. Never anywhere have the American people made the least expression iu favor of a life tenure in civil office. They believe that frequent changes in public office keep the public service pure, just as the tides purify the sea. They have seen corruption almost invariably follow long continuance in office. They also believe in the rotation of public honors. The humblest family in the land may have an ambition to see one of its number placed in official posi tion. The whole sympathy of the Amor ican people is with the family in that aspiration. Besides, we cannot have too her public schools. If her schools keep up the same rate of advancement that they have in the past few years they will soon rank among the best schools of the state. The tables were very tastefully arranged and decorated, and needless to say surrounded by an anxious throng of admirers each and everyone patiently waiting to become a competent judge of the good things toereon represented. We married folks were, without exception, assigned to the large central table running the entire length of the room—the young folks to the small side table. This was satisfaction to all the married folks excepting Mr Tom Hale. The arrangement, as we were afterward informed, was made on account of the central table holding the largest supply of provisions, the committee on arrangements well understanding the fact that when we old folks go to a festival we go to eat, leaviug our at home to feed on when provides The “master of was very properly seated of the central table. Although Mr. G. T. Pullman peformed the duties of this high office very creditably, this position of honor should be filled by a very “moderate eater.” one who will have time to moat satisfactorily perform the duties thereon devolving. At nine o’clock the signal to be seated was given. On glancing over the assembly we noticed Mrs. Lillie M. (Sellers) Brann as the only representative of the graduating class of 1885. Graduates from other classes were present as follows: J. H. Morrison, Louella Wood, T. T. Powers, S. N. Goodwin, A W. D^wns and Kate Hablnr of the class of 1888; Minnie Ransom, Eva J. Ruusell, R H. Swift, Ota D. Rucner, Inez J Cal leu and E. L. Stickney of the class of 1889; Clare Rippey, Belle Berry. Charles Downs, Mary Tuttle and Effie Carey of the graduating class of 1890. Good music was furnished by the orchestra throughout the evening. Professor A R Morgan made a brief but brilliant address, in which he traced the comparative advancement of the human mind with that of the geological ages. A recitation by Miss Lovells Wood was well selected and well rendered. Mr. E. L Stienney in his response to “Tllh Cloud ii*. Our Horizon,” things of which our limited space denies mention. Mr. S. J. Cf. Eby briefly responded to the toast, “Our Public Schools.” The exercises were ^closed by an address by T. T.

The dedication ceremonies were presided over by Deputy Grand Master T. P. R’xey, of Mexico, Missouri, and his address was one of the best ever delivered in the city. The audience was held spell-bound for more than two hours, and after the services were closed many anti-secret people acknowledged that Odd Fellowship is an excellent society and a good institution for every community. At six o’clock all visiting members, their wives daughters andson8, were escorted to the Red Ribbon hall where a magnificent banquet was had Deputy Grand Master Rixey stated that he had travelled all over the state of Missouri and had visited nearly all the lodges, and he was proud to say Unionville has the finest Odd Fellows’ edifice, outside of St. Louis, in the state. cannot have too many intelligent Americans passing through office for a while, to serve with pride and to fall back into the ranks of the people to teach what I they have learned.
