The Philadelphia fifties'expresses the wish that the English syndioate, which is anxious to buy everything American, would make an oiler for our political bosses, so that we might get rid of them. Oar political bosses are alwaya ready to sell themselves, and a deal in that direction would Dot be a hard one to effect. The Philadelphia Inquirer says the . white members of the Grand Army of the Republic in the Department of Mississippi and Louisiana have gone off by them-selves and formed a new organization, leaving the original field in possession of the colored members and those whites who are willing to associate with them, They have done this because the colored veterans were permitted to organize camps of the Order and to participate with the whites in the obsequies of Jefferson Davis. Meanwhile, in the G. A. R. Convention, just adjourned at Shamokin, colored members were received on terms of absolute equality with the white one, and nobody's feelings seemed to be hurt by it. Southern whites are making a great deal of trouble for themselves by their foolish Indulgence in race prejudice. The P. O. s. or A. Ball at Benovo. Benovo News.

Miller, assisted by Miss Emma Goldsberry called for the assem bling for the grand march, when seventy-five men, each accompanied by a lady friend formed in line, and to the time of the music followed the graceful movements of the conductor.

Firmness on the Part of the Speaker Checks a Strong Outburst THE POINT OF HO QUORUM RAISED Trouble Over the World's Fair BUI, and the Clotl Cry of No Quo-ram-The Democrats Try a New Plan by Demanding Tellers, and Then .Dispute the Speaker's Bight to Count those Not Voting. Washington, Feb. 17.-After - the reading of the journal in the House to-day Mr. Carlisle rose and said that since the 29ih of January bis side of the House had been protesting every morning against the approval of the journal on the ground that it contained an entry made by direction of the Speaker showing the names of oertain members present and not voting. Last Friday the House had adopted a code of rules providing for such practice against the Democrats who had protested and wonld protest as an unconstitutional practice. Bat it was a question which eould not be decided in this House and whenever the proper cases arose it would go to some other forum. It was the purpose of bis side of the House to see that this occasion should be made in such a shape as would permit it to be finally and decisively passed upon. Therefore, he saw no reason why the journal form of which tba Honse bad a right to prescribe, shonld not be approved. This was done. a livelt debate. There was another parliamentary debate, the Democrats disputing the right of the Speaker to oonnt a quorum present when tbe vote by tellers showed less than a quorum. Mr. Candler, of Massachusetts, offered a resolution providing that Thursday and Friday next be set aside for debate on the World's Fair bill, and that tbe vote be taken on Monday. Mills, of Texas, demanded a second. Tellers were appointed and the result announoed as fo'lowe: Yeas, 114; nays, 8. On tbe point of no quorum the Speaker, after running his eye rapidly over tbe House Baid: "There are 172 members present, more than a quorum." McMullen, of Tennessee, immediately protested that the rules prescribed tellers as a means of ascertaining the presence or absence of a quorum, and it was not proper for the Speaker to count. the speaker's rOLICY. The Speaker responded that a majority bad eeoonded the motion and the debate was now in order, but the Democrats made an earnest resistance to proceeding further and Mills, Carlisle, Blount and Crisp argued tbatou a vote by the tellerauobody should be counted who did not actually vote, and the report of tbe tellees to the Speaker was the only guide be bad for as-serting whether or not a quorum participated. Their arrangements were opposed by Cannon, Lodge and Burrows, who up- I held the Speaker in his interpretation of the rules. authorities quoted. The Speaker made quite a lengthy address, citing bis authorities for determining the presence of a quorum, and saying In conclusion that in this case he had repeatedly oounted the Bouse during the vote and was satisfied that a constitutional quorum was present to do business. Messrs. Candler, Flower and Hill then spoke briefly, urging speedy action on the World's Fair bill. The question wsb then taken on the motion to suspend the rules and make a special order for the World's Fair bill, and this was agreed. The bill for the relief of the Sioux Indians at Devils Lake agency, North Dakota, who are represented to be starving, was then taken up on a suspension of the roles and passed. Adjourned. in the senate. In the Senate to-day Mr. Freye, from tbe Select Committee on Pacific railroads, reported the bill providing for tbe funding of the Pacific railroad bonds, which was placed on the calendar.

Tho subject of this notice was born in New Berlin, Pa., Dec. IS, 1332. Her father, Dauici Lemon, was one of the old time Methodist, and his house a home for tbe preachers. Hannah, at an early age, embraoed religion, aud maintained her profession during life. She was married, April 24, 185G, to James T. Thompson, and two years later came with her husband to Salona, which bee .mo their permanent residence. Hero were born and nurtured seven children, five of whom, two sons and three daughters, survive. Here, she quietly and unobtrusively exemplified the conjugal and maternal virtues which made her home a happy one, and make her memory dear. For almost two years she had suffered from a bronchial affection; and last December, during a revival, having ventured to walk with ber husband to evening meeting, she took cold, and tbe visit to tbe house of prayer was her last out door trip. February 9, 1890, after seven weeks of severe suffering, it pleased God to release her from pain by a painless exit, which, though solon? imminent, came with startling suddenness at last. During her illness, ibis dear sister expressed deep regrer, not lor anything she had done, but that she had not done more; that she had not been more earnest and active in Christian work. But while humbly conscious ol uuworthiness, she trusted in the Sauior, and no one who knew her doubts that now being absent from the body she is present with the Lord. Her funeral servioe was bald in the Salona Methodist Cbaroh, Eeb. 12, 1890, by the pastor, assisted by Rev. H. A. Diettt-riob, pastor of the Lutheran Church. The text was I Cor. xv :2G. Her remains were laid In Cedar Hill cemetery to await tbe resurrection morning. Salona, Pa., Feb. 15, 1890. .7 s. u. To-JHorrow Night's Attraction.

Arnold Wolfred was a chipper Passe-Partout, the servant; James P. Fleming was John Archibald, the American, and Harry Stoddard was Fix, tho detective; Aonda, the Rajah's widow, and Ayeesha were Misses Edith Potter and Cecil ReeB. The play is a great spectacular sensation, and a tro< mendous auxiliary and ballet corps are tbe extraordinary features of tbe play tbat help forward a "go" that went before and goes again with much sucoess, as tbe crowd of last night showed.-From the Baltimore .Sttn. of Oct.
