EVENING EXPRESS KINSIXli: KKOTHKKS---IT1SLI8HEKS YISITED BY RAIN AND WIND CURRENT COMMENT. It is very good of ex Senator Wallace to offer himself as sacrificial victim. He will make a good subject for tbe Republicans at next fall's election. The. Australian system aeeiu* to be working satisfactorily wherever it bas been tried. Even tbe politicians express tbeir satisfaction with it Four, tbousand immigrants arrived at Caetle Garden on Monday, tbe majority of them from Italy.

Os tbe Srst of April women of Kansas exercised tbe right of suffrage again in tbe local elections of that State, and strange and remarkable as it ma; seem all the officials o! Manhattan elected two yean ago, and all women, were re-elected to their positions witb increased majorities. ' The appointment of Baron Bierberatein to the position of Foreign Secretary of State demonstrates Emperor William's purpose to divide tbe responsibility and tbe authority which were formerly Bismarck's. It shows that Caprivi will not be tbe head of tbe German Government as was his predecssor. Governor Hill has vetoed the bill pass ed by the New York Legislature to iusure pure elections. It was a Republican mess* ure. It is wbat pure election Democrat* are preaching-Mr. Cleveland iu particular. Bat when it comes to laws designed to make sure of pare elections they' fall into line against tbem. It is understood tbat tbe Democrats propose to present to Congress a tariff-smasbing bill on tbe same general plan aa tbe Mills bill. A little thing like the adverse verdict of tbe nation upon the principle of the Mills bill a year ago last fall doesn't count for anything in the opinion of tbe Democratic leaders. Tbe Mormons are taid to be utterly disgusted witb tbe wan ing of tbeir power in Utah, and arc rapidly moving to Mexico and other climes more congenial than Utah for tbe practice of po'ygamy. At the recent elections tbe Gentiles defeated tbe polygamists at every turn, and the Saints have discovered tbat tbe new officers are strictly enforcing the anti-polygamy laws. Williamspurt is to have a handsome new opera house for sure, and probably two of tbem. A company has been formed to erect a handsome play bonse on the Bite of tbe Orit establishment, and Wm. G. Elliot, the owner of tbe Academy of Music, is contemplating erecting a now place of amusement near the new public buildings. One new opera bouse would donbtless prove a paying investment, but two, never. Tbe Lilly Clay Gaiety Company will disport tbeir charms before an Altoona audience to-night. erratic express-ions.
