Chicago bas a great deal to do between now and 1B93 in order to be ready to wel e >me all: the world to tier fair. The first task la to repress,- rrguiate and control her Anarobiata and other oriminal olasses. The Direotor of the Hint reports that the gold prodnot of the United States for the calendar year 1869 wait 1.587,000 fine ouneee, of the value of (33,800,000. The -silver'product-was 50,000,000*fine ounces, of Ibe commercial value uf 446,750 000 and of the coinage value of $61,646,464. The Pot stown. Ledger last" Saturday issued a 16 p�k'e industrial edition, containing mucb_ valuable information in regard to Pottstowa and i's enterprising business men. _ Mr., W. ,I., Binder, the energetic propritor and: publisher of the Ledger, has just reason to feel proud of this, special. Usue, which is oarefully edited and printed^ and.'would do honor to any town. Pottatown is to be congratulated on having a live newspaper like the Ledger and it is a pleasure to know that it i* properly apyreelated by the people of that oity ^nd'Vioinlty._ :; ;, , ,      'i, " , The first yeto that President Harrison �eat to; Congress is interfiled to puts check on municipal extravagance. Congress had passed a bill which; permitted the city of Ojtden, in Utah, to increase its indebtedness to the extent/of eight per oent. of the last sssesraont, forpsrpoeesof taxation, the general law on the subjaet,which il more liberal than similar' laws' to the States, fixing the limit at four per oent. The President set his fees against snob legurtation, declaring that i'a largo. city debt retard's growth and in* the end defeats the purpose of those who think of mortgaging the future to attract population and property." -These are sound and Wholesome words.    ,,   , The United States Supreme Court, through Chief Justice Fuller, rendered an opinion adverse to the conatitutionality of State laws providing for the seizure of liquor brought into 'the State in original packages. Such laws, the court holds are ' an interference with interstate commerce: After the liquor becomes tbe property of the importer- the State may, under-its police powers regulate or prohibit sale, but it has no power in the absence of express Congressional authority to prohibit the transportation of the , article from another State and its. delivery to the importer. � The casein which .the decision wai made:.waa_ |tbatJofi Gas Leidy & Co.; plaintiff*, in error, versus A.

Y., April 28-Notwiih-standiog'all the elaborate preparations for the electrical exeoutiou of William Keinm-ler, notwiifastsudiug Warden bjraum bad practically decided upou tbe time vf administering tbe (atal curreut, and uot-twithatauding tbat most of the authorized witnesses had "arrived iu Auburn, tbe �hole proceeding is now stopped and definitely adjourned. T is pustpouinent has been accomplished by the serving oi a writ of habeas corpus, aud not iu many years has there been go dramitio an illustration in New Yoik state of tbe tremen-bus power' exerted by 'that venerable Anglo-Saxon process. It is only by 'chance that tbe present step, ostensibly in beball of Kemm-ler, coouta for anything, for had there not been a little delay in getting tbe apparatus in final order and iu completing the- other arrangements, the criminal would* have been shocked into the next world tbis morning just after" daybreak. It was the warden's intention, it Is declared by those who have seen the .first notifications, to have the deed done'this morning. Had his original plans been carried out, tbe movement of Kemmler'e friends would have been fruitless. A frequent topic of speculation here, since tbe developments of to-day, has been upon tbe point as to when and where tbe writ of habeas oorpus proceedings bad i'a incept lioj. Tbe writ was presented to tbe warden by Roger M. Sherman, a Sex York lawyer, bertofore. unknown in'-the ise. Judge Wallace granted a writ ol habeas oorpus on the ground that the manner of the execution is in violation of tbe constitution of the United States. Tbe writ is made returnable in June. Mr. Sherman will not say wbo retained him, but the presence in the ci>y of a lawyer known as counsel for a number ot eleotric light companies, gave rise to suspicion that they were behind tbe movement. Kemmler received ibe news of bis. respite quietly and with the remark, "That makes me feel much easier." His face wsb expressionless. The future of the case will be one of long protracted litigation. The court of appeals ban already passed upon the esse, and now it is thrown into tbe courts of the Uuitsd States aud the question of federal constitution is in volved. The act of Congress of 1878, under which the application is brought, hss already been constructed by tbe United Stabs Supreme Court. It was intended to cover the southern outrage cases when violation of, election laws were common. Tbe Supreme Court in passing upon the ease wherein it claimed that the eighth provision of the constitution applied to State laws imposing certain punishments, decided that the provision applied to Na tional and not to State legal violation. A number of leading attorneys here were quick to declare to-day that tbe application will not be successful, as it is dearly within the limits of the decision referred to. The lawyers say it was an affair by wbich it was hoped to gain time, and it is not expected that the writ witl be allowed. BASE   BALI. RECORD. ECHOS OF TOWH TALK. DAMAGES CLAIMED.

Wilkes-Baree, Pal, April 29- the Carpenters' and Joiners' trades assembly of this city, to-day entered suit against tbe trustees of the Osterhout free library, claiming .110,000 damages. The Csrpen ten'assembly leased the large hall in tbe Osterhout block for a term of years with the privilege of subletting to other organi zations. Among the associations to whom: they have sublet was the Axle Workers' local assembly of the Knights of Labor. On Saturday evening last, when tbe carpenters met at their ball, tbey found tbe doors locked, with notice thereon informing them that they bad for feitsd tbe lease for subletting to tbe axle workers without a written permission from tbe trusteed. .The notice characterized tbe axle workers *s'drunken vagabonds, which naturally excited considerable in digestion among tbe workingmen of thl* eity Wbfl claim tbst the axle men are among tbe' most .orderly citizens here. Last night the carpenters swore out a warrant for tbo arrest of the trustees, who were held eaeb In (500 bail for sppearanoe at court. In addition to thiF, the civil suit for damages was brought.

Tbe flood of last June played havoc with both fruit and shade tress in Lock Haven. Many fruit trees that were' not destroyed by the drift that was floating at tbe time of the deluge died during the summer and many others which were supposed to be alive are found to be: dead this Spring. Large orders were placed with the tree dealers for tbis Spring's planting, and for a week or more it has been Arbor Day th� whole week through in -Lock Haven. Yesterday W. W. Ritohey planted forty Lombardy poplars in front of O.W. Hippie's property on Bellefonte avenue. Daniel Grose, proprietor of tbe 8t Cloud Hotel, bas also planted Lombardy poplars in froDt of bis property on Washington street to replace tbe trees killed by the flood. The Queen's Run Fire Brick Company planted elm trees along the river bank west of their works, and the Lock Haven Clay Company planted willows. AH over tbe city tree planting Is in progress, and it will likely be several years yet before tbe dead trees are all replaced. >  � '- Married la Kaaaas. Tbe Herald, published at Hope; Kansas,r bas the following marriage notioe, the parents of the bride being well known in Clinton county, having formerly resided in Woodward township: "The residenoe of Rudolph Blesh, in this city, was the scene ot a pleasant event Tuesday evening, the occasion being tbe marriage of his youngest daughter, Miss Addie May Blesh, to Dr. Chandler, a rising young physician of Pardeeville, Wis., and an o'd class-mate of Dr. A. L. Bleeb, brother of ibe bride. The ceremony, at wbioh the Rev. A. H. Boyd, of tbe Methodist church, officiated, was witnessed by none except family relatives, ot whom quite a number ware present.

The Huntingdon JSiasf says the streets of that town are to be paved with vitrified paving brick. A committee from the Borough Counoil visited Wheeling, W. Va., to inspect the paved streets of that city and were muoh pleased with what they saw. > The committee: were given a carriage ride through the city. This was a practical trial of the merits ot the brisk paving that was highly enjoyed, and added greatly to tbe favorable impressions previously formed. It wss a luxury, indeed, to ride over tbe forty squares of vitrified b-ick paving without a Jolt or j�r and to find every street where it was laid as smooth almost aa a floor. Tbe cost of the briok is about -one-third less than Bulgian block or asphalt. The estimated cost of vitrified brick to be laid in Huntingdon is #2.10 per square yard,'. Here in Look Haven the briok oaa ba furnished for less than balf that sum per square yard. Last year City o'ounoil had -under consideration a proposition to pave one block of Main street with briok, but after the flood the subject wss dropped. Under tLe law of 1889, two-tbirds of tbe property holders upon the street of a borough or city can petition the oouooil to ley snob paving as they- desire^ the borough or city to pay one-third of tbo expense and the; property; owners two-thirds. A crossing made of vitrified briok baa been laid by the Queen's Run Fire Brick Company in front of their offloe on Water street, where it oan be. inspected by any. who are interested in the matter.
