of Con gress last week Congressman Atkin son voted against the bill A Fine Tribute to General Hancock One of the finest paid to the late General Hancock was that of ex President Hayes commander of the Ohio Loyal Legion In closing his address he said If when we make up our estimate of a public man conspicuous both as a soldier and in affairs we are to think first and ot his manhood his integrity his purity his singleness of purpose and his unselfish devotion to duty We can say truthfully of Hancock that he was through and through pure gold His death is sorecent and such a shock to xis all that I hesitate on this occasion to enter atlargeon the facts of his life During many years he has at the head of tho military order of the Loyal Legion His presence his prestige his name Las given to this soldiers organization we know not how much of its prosperity its interest and its influence His commanding figure and so impressive inspiring and were the outward symbol of a charac ter and achievements which left noth ing for the most exacting imagination to desire when seeking for the model American soldier patriot and gentle man One reference to his record as a soldier is enough for my present purpose lost or The won single battle which humanely speaking WHAT astonishes the Pension Bu reau is that there are now on the rolls the names of 17212 women widows of soldiers of the war of 1812 It has been frequently asserted says the New York Herald that not one of the 60000 Hebrews in this city is the keeper of a liijuor saloon THI House Committee on Invalid Pensions has decided to

beenintroduced in the House of Representatives by Congress manPulitzer of New York granting n pension of five thousand dollars a seemed destined to decide the great conflict was Hancocks opportunity

United States Senator he should be given the second place on the Presidential ticket Ai this is a good ways off yet there need be no hurry in discussing the merits of the suggestion the Ohio Republicanswent out of office two years ago tney left a cash balimce in the treasury amount to 4618000 The Democrats haw just gone out leaving udeficit pi 05678271 But the precioustnenior ies left by the Democracyare worth millions WASHINGTONS birthday was honored with more than usual recognition on Monday in the civic uncVmilitarypa rades It is the only celebration in the American calendar that takes no tice of individual merit in this case celebrates the grandest man of hu man history ExVicE PRESIDENT and exUnited States Senator Hannibal Hamlin is now seventynine years old and boasts that

cent und the population 63 per cent while the public debt has de creased by 54 per cent and the per capita 72 per cent The cereal crops have increased about 250 por cent over those of twenty years ago An Obsolete Pension Law There are a few old laws upon the statute books that are obsolete and that ought to be repealed Among is the act of March 19 1836 re lating to the pensioning of the soldiers of thatearly day and which has been taken advantage of byclaim agents of Washington and other places These havrt issued and widely distributed among Government pensioners a cir cular soliciting employment in the1 prosecution of a claim which they say not in the nature of a pension and which they believe is due the sioners from the Government under the actof Congress of March 19 1886 which provides halfpay for five years to widows of soldiers killed or who died of wounds subsequent to April 20 1818 The commissioner of pensions reporting upon the subject to the com mittee on Invalid Pensions uses the following language The act of March 191836 appears to be obsolete as all the beneficiaries are provided for by the more compre hensive act of July 41836 and its ben efits cannot be extended to the sol diers of the late war or Jheir heirs as bv the terms of section 6 of sairl jict its benefits are limited to those who served in the Florida Indian war of 1S36 Commissioner Black asks for the re peal of the act mentioned on the ground retention an the stat utes tends to create confusion and of fers inducements to claim agents and others to introduce claims against the Government resulting in unnecessary labor and costs to the departments even when it is shown as in this case that all the benefits confessed by the act have been fully satisfied Soldiers widows should take notice that the act of March 191836 is obso lete and not pay out any money to claim agents under that act Political Pointers General Hartranft has gone into the life insurance business Joseph G

The Governorship According to the Inquirer an es teemed New York contemporary again states as if by authority that Mr Randall proposes to accept the gubernatorial nomination of his party His alleged reason for resigning his prominentand certain position in Congress is that beinga candidate for the office of President of the Unitecl States he would occupya stronger position in the office of Governor of Pennsylvania that being a goodplace to start from in the presidential race If Mr Randall had been born yester day or had embarked in politics to day it might be reasonably assumed that he believed he can be elected Governor of this Commonwealth But having been born a long while ago and having a ratherprotracted ex perience in politics no one probably knows better than he docs the abso lute impossibility of his election to the chief executive office of Pennnyl viinia If any Democrat could be elected to it undoubtedly Mr Randall would have a very much hotter chance than another but it ia no more possi ble for a Democrat to succeed Gover nor Puttison by the votes of the people than it would be for a Democrat or Republican to stop the overflow of Niagara with a handful of sandMr Randall is one of the shrewdest of politicians and he knows aa well as he knows his alphabet that the next Governor of this State will be a Re publican and his name is Adams Beaver of Centre county uv
