Here is a warning for tbe Delaware and Maryland fruit growers iu the news that comes from California, where they say there Is promise of tbe lament frnit crop known for many years. Onlt a little while ago the Democrats were decidedly unhappy because President Harrison was not doing any vetoing Now they are sneering and finding fault because he has vetoed two bills in tbe interests of economy and jaBtice. A call his been issued by the Fulion County Republican Committee for the election of a State delegate by a convention. This is in accordance with the re cent action of tbe. State Committee, i-nd it will remove what might bive been a mis obievous precedent hereafter. The Republican primary election in this county on Saturday, resulted in favor of Geneial Hastings as tbe choice of Clinton counly for Quvernnr. In faot there was lo apposition to him and tbe delegate to - the State Convention will go instructed for Hastings for Governor. Gotkbkob Hill, of New York, has signed the Sax ton Ballot Reform bilL After fight ng the principle of ballot reform for three years tbe tricky and resourceful leader of the New York Democracy has been compelled to yield to tbe greater part of what be fought for. Tbe new measure is less thorough than Republicans would like to have it, but it marks a great ad-ranoe. * PnoHiBmoH under the constitution and laws of Sou h Dakota went into effect in that State las: week,' and tbe Prohibitionists are hopeful of success. As South - Dakota is made up chiefly of agricultural communtles, having few towns ajd none of them very populous, it is probable that they will have a more favorable opportunity there of entoroing their doctrine than they bave bad in any other State to which it has been applied. . Irish patriots are again busy collecting money in the United States to send to the politicians. Last week (7,500 were seut in one remittance. We wonder if these people bave ever stopped to consider that tbe money that has been collected during tbe past quarter of a century for this purpose wonld be enough to buy farms for half the people in Ireland, and that thus far practically no good has been accomplished? It is moat astonishing that tbe voters and taxpayers, of Ohio should ever bave placed tbe Democratic party in power in that State. Tbe Cleveland leader publishes the names of thirty-four Democratic county treasurers who bave been defaulters to tbe amount of one million eight h undred and forty-six thousand one hundred and twenty-one dollars, while there bave been but two Republican county treasurers who proved defaulters since the organization of tbe State.

Washington, Hay 4 -Senator James B. Beck, of Kentucky, dropped dead in the Baltimore and Potomao railroad station at 4 o'clock Saturday afternoon. He bad just arrived on the limited express from New York, and wss accompanied by bis daughter, Mrs. Goodloe, wife of Hajor Goodloe, of the United States Marine Corps. He got off the train with the rest of the passengers and walked with his daughter the entire length of the platform and through tbe station proper. He seemed to walk with an effort, and to breatbe with labor, but these symptoms were the usual accompaniments of exertion with bim for some months past. After passing into the station the Senator and his daughter stopped and were joiued by his private Secretary, who had brought a carriage to take them home. a startling death scene. A few words were exchanged with regard to the ease of bsggsge, when the Senator suddenly turned pale, and with the remark, "I feel dizzy," fell into the anus of his companions. They could not support bis weight and he dropped to the floor, where he swooned away. His daughter was naturally alarmed and screamed for help. Willing bauds were numerous, as the station was crowded at tbe time, and tbe limp and helpless body was borne into the office of tbe station master about twenty feet away, where be expired without having regained consciousness. ' Tbe death of Senator Beck, while not entirely unexpected, was nevertheless, a great shook in Washington. For more than a year past he has been a sick man, and since tbe death of his wife, three years ago, he has been ailirg. A month ago there was a rnmor in circulation to the effect that he was contemplating resigning, as bis doctors had warned bim that any oontinued mental application would have fatal results. This rumor was denied by his friends, but bis death proves only too well that tbe prognosis of the pby.icians was verified. Mr. Beck was a typical specimen of a Scotobman, both in language and appear, ance, and be bad in a marked degree the traits of the sturdy race which has done so mush toward tbe development of this country. While it is too early to talk about bis successor, it is generally thought that Mr. Csi lisle will be sent to the Senate,allbough both Representative Breckinridge and ex-Governor MoCreary have many friends who would like to see them receive the honor. viewing the remains. The remains of Sunator Beck have been placed in a oaaket and lie in tbe parlor of the home of Representative Breokeuridge on Capitol Hill. A large number of persons, including most oi bis senatorial colleagues, called during tbe day to view tbe body and tender their condolence to Hrs, Goodloe, the daughter of the late Senator. A large number of telegrams of condolence were also received. The funeral arrangements have not been fir ally and definitely determined upon yet. sketch of bis life.

London, Hay 4.-To day'a labor demonstration in Hyde Park was a magnificent success, snd excelled in point of numbers and orderly enthusiasm. alt working class gatherings since the great reform assemblage in 1866. The splendid organization of the different trades taking part in the processions brought together in the park half a million people who met, went through the business and dispersed without a single incident ooonrring of a disorderly character. The total number taking part in the various processions is estimated at 170,000, and these were almost lost in the vastnesa of the assemblage gathered around the thirteen platforms upon which ths Labor Day advocates beld forth. re80lbtioh8 adopted. Resolutions demanding that eight hours be recognized as a day's work were put and carried amid the exclamations of the multitude, and by five o'clock, when the panders hsd reformed in line, the assemblage began to disperse. Half a million is a moderate computation of tbe gathering, the character of which bore everywhere the unmistakable stamp of tbe solid, respectable artisan olass, the rsg back and bobtail being conspicuously absent. Ths speakers included Hr. Davitt, Mr. Cunningham Graham, John Burns, Thos.

Social Equality. Washington, Hay 8.-Archbishop Ireland, of St Paul, Minnesota, preached to day in St Augustine's colored Catholic Cbnroh, In this city, to s large congregation of white and colored people, on "Social Equality." He felt ashamed, be said, that prejudices of this kind should exist, especially in tbs United States, when the. equality of all men was the corner stone of the tenets' of the Cstholio Cbnroh. Let Catholics who hsd been made to see that all were equal before the Lord extend tbe right hand of fellowship to their colored brethren and say that there wss not and oonld not be a oolor question between Catholics, and that was the true and only solution of the problem.
