The friends of Secretary of State Stone think that be Is in excellent position to be a "compromise" candidate for Governor before the Republican convention. Not lees than four handrud and twenty �is marriages have been oontraoted In Camden daring the plat four weeks. The great majority of them save been entered into by couples who live elawhere than in Camden, bntatbiefly in Pennsylvania, 8evek TJ. S. Senators spoke into a phonograph congratulatory messages to explorer Stanley. Col. Geaureaud, Mr. Edison's partner, will take the phonograph to London, where at tbe Stanley dinner it will repsat the messages in their voice and language. A good deal has been heard of the lamentable condition of tbe iemale workers in tbe New England factories. Bat the statistics of Massachusetts show that the unmarried females of thst State have �29, 000,000 on deposit in tbe Savinga Banks of that State. Their condition doea not seem so desperate after all. Tkk Democrats of Jersey City, in their Board of Aldermen, bave jnat practiaed a beaotifn! gerrymander. The Republicans elected fire out of e>x Aldermen at the re-oent election, whereupon tbe Democratic msjoiity in tbe Board proceeded to carve the districts into sneh Bbape that hereafter tbe Democrats will elect five oat of the six!__ It seems rather more than a coincidence that since the Legialstnre of North Dakota bas spurned the bribes oflered by the Louisiana Lottery oompany, tbere have been no more (10,000 and 15,000 prina drawn by Dakota people. Tbe oiroam-stance has set the people of that young Commonwealth to thinking. Tbe census of 1890 will show that the people of this country are prodnciog about 814,000,000,000 worth of useful products annnaliy. Oar exports are about 1700,. 000,000 only, showing that we seod abroad only about 5 per cent, of all we produce, and tbat the borne market takes 85 per cent. Doesn't this show tbe importance of fostering the borne market? Theke are to-day three beet-sugar factories in the United States. Two are Jn California and one in Nebraska. Each one of these cost about 1500,000 to build. They nse about fifty tons of coal psr day dqring tbe sugar-making season and employ two hundred men each, turning out about thirty tons of angar per dsy. To supply onr sugsr needs in tbe year 1930 will require seven hundred each factories, and necessitate an investment of' 1350,000,000 to build. Every industry in the land would be benefitted by such a colossal enterprise._"_ JOHV M. WARD AND HIB WIFE. RANMLL IN HIS GRAVE.

A special to tbe Philadelphia Pnu Says: The fact that Mrs. Helen Dauvrsy Ward is living apart from her husband, John M.

"I go back to the atage because I sm sep-ated from my husband. I am not separated from my bnsband because I want to go bank to tbe atage. There is a vast difference between the two.
