PKiCE-TWO CENTS EVENING EXPRESS I BROTHERS---reBl.ISHF.RS CURRENT COMMENT. Stanley is putting in all his �p�ro time prodding the British lion, to make the beast uegry at Germany. The only way in whioh a census oiin bo had that will be valuable, and give to the. people such information as tbey really ueed, will tie by everybody giving and telling the truth and nothing bat the truth. Tub English have just invented $7,500,-000 more iu a California Byndioate. Who hears of millions of Amerioan money being Beat to England for investment? And y%t if the free trader* are right, the senses ought to How towards the British isles and not to the United States. Thhhe Is nothing astonishing in the report that ex-President Hayes Ib worth a million dollars. He owned three or fonr hundred thousand dollars' worth of real estate ioToledo when he was elected Presi-den^sed its natural increase in valuewould . make him a millionaire, without any Red Tape speculation. Tbk Emperor William i� getting very angry at Frinee Bismarck, and has informed him that if he does not stop his utterances through the press, "the result will be serious." Evidently his Hejesty thought that the ex-Chancellor, who is the author of German unity and the constructor of the imperial throne on which William sits, would consent to the mute when dismissed from office. Cleiiks of the Provincial Bank of Ireland can't marry till their salary reaches �150 a year, and it generally stops at �120. The injustice of it is seen when it is said tbat Ihef bars to contribute each 84 s year to the widows' fund, even while they are thns shut out from having any widows themselves to get even. No wonder the Irish bank clerks are in favor of home rule.  What is home without a wife ? An akotheh Indication of the determination not to be dominated by any threatening labor organization, the Reading Railroad has notified all i.s conductors belonging to the Brotherhood of Conduc- J tors that tbey must leave the Brotherhood ' or the company. For years the organization had an antl striking clause iu Its constitution. At its recent convention held at Jiocbestor the anti-striking clanse was repealed, and they may now strike when and as often as they please; This is what tbe Beading Company objects to.

The tobacco growers have been considerably disoouraged over the outlook for plants this spring. (The cold wet weather prevented the growers from Bowing their seed as early as usual, and the oontinued cold, wet weather retarded the growth.

LARGE DELEGATION OF THEM HEABD Mr. ,1. M. Constable, of the Iiw York Bouse, Heads tho tilt-Tho Silk Inter, cits, Importers off Fotterj and Glass, ware, tho Wool Indnatry^Upkolsterors Protest Against the Bill. Washington, June 1.-A delegation of abont one hundred importers appeared to-day before the Senate Committee on Finance to protest against the passage of the McKinley Tariff bill. Tbe commit tee adjourned, owing to the throng, to the Senate reception room, which was crowded. All the members of the committee except Chairman Morrill ( jow iu Chicago) were present at 11 o'clock. Senator Sherman presided. Mr. J, M. Constable, of Arnold, Constable & Company, was chief spokesman for the delegation. He presented the formal protest of the importere of New York. VIEWS OF uboi IlirOHTKHS. Mr. Constable said it was not true, as had been stated in the press, that they were all from New York. They name from all the important centres of this country-New York, Chicago, Philadelphia, Cincinnati. The importere protested against tbe bill because they believed it would legislate in favor of one class against another class; for the benefit of the manufacturers against the importers; also because it will work against the poor men of this country. If the McKinley bill west into operation a great many of the importere would have to retire from the business. A speaker at the Home Market Club eaid he was in favor of giving the greatest benefit to tbe greatest number of people. He hoped the Committee believed in that, and if so this bill would never become a law. He then introduced Henry W. Curtis, repreeealiog tbe silk and velvet interests, who announced himself as a Protectionist Republican. The silk commission houses, he said, were more largely interested in domestic silks than in tbe foreign article. Their money was in domestic mills, and including importing and manufaoturing, the importers of New York represented 1500,000,000 of capital. Tho MoKinley biii bore hardest npon the people who could afford it the least-those using the cheaper silks. POTTERY AND OLASBWafcE. Isadore Strauss, representing, he caid, nine-tenths of the importers of pottery and glassware of New York, declared It to be untrue that the importers were generally free traders. They decidedly preferred the present tariff to free trade. Ie was more to their interest, as part of their profit was on the duty. The McKinley hill increased the duty on the poor man's glassware much more than on that of the rich man. He exhibited a Bohemian tumbler costing 45 serfs a dozen laid down in New York, duty paid, and thBn showed a domeetis article costing 25 cents a dozen. The present tariff was therefore practically prohibitive; and yet it was proposed by the McKinley bill to largely increase it. The effect of this would be that the price of the domestic tumbler would be inoreased. Senator Bherman having asked about the existence of trusts in tbe pottery trade, Mr. Strauss declared that a trust was in full operation in yellow ware and cheap �tuff which was not imported at all, and rather dletinotly intimated a belief that there wae a trust either actually in existence or else in contemplation in the higher grades of pottery and in glassware. Senator Bherman asked if the reduction in price of Glassware during the laet ten years was not the result of domestio com. pettlion. Mr. Strauss thought that tbe cause was competition all over the world and great strides in the knowledge of the art, com bined with the. use of natnral gas. THE RAW WOOL INDUSTRY. Louis Windmullar, speaking for the raw wool industry, said that the McKinley bill proposed to raise tbe duty oo wool wortb 12 cents or less from 24 to 33 per cent., and on higher grades from 30 to 50 per cent. The only effect of increasing the duty on tbe lower grades of ooarse carpet wool would be to increase the prioe. No matter how muoh the duty was,the American wool grower would not raise these coarse oarpet wools, because it would not be to bit interest. Matt ot this oosne wool came from the plains of Asia, where civilization was at a low stage. He also protested against raising the duty on camels' hair and ostrich featbere, neither camels nor ostriches being raised here. Ernest Werner said it was the opinion of tbe importers that ths MoKinley bill would establish absolutely prohibitive rates of doty on all woolen goods for man's wear wdrn by the masses. The bill bore with especial severity on woolenB toe poorer people wear. THE UPHOLSTERY lMPaRTEHS. Mr. James H. Thorpe, epeaking for the upholstery importers, said that at present silk plnsh used as covering for furniture boxes, albums, and other purposes pays 50 per oent. sd valorem, whioh, under the MoKinley bill, would be increased so as to range from 76 to 148 per sent., the obange falling with the greatest emphasis on the cheapest work and the lowest grade sf goods. He exhibited various samples of plush and other coverings in support of this charge of discrimination against tbe farmer and the worklngman. The benefit of this lucre see of duty would chiefly inure to two or three New England manufacturers on some lines of goods, and to a comparatively few others on some other grsdes. At tho conclusion of the hearing, Sir, Constsble thanked the committee for its attention and consideration, and expressed his earnest hope that it would do some thing to settle properly the tariff question, whioh was now being agitated to the detriment of the business interests of the whole eourntry. Senator Sherman responded for tbe committee, saying It bad heard the speakers with great interest and would give due consideration to all that had been said. The printed protest presented to the committee by Mr. Constable is signed by 455 msrsantile Arms of New York city. It embodies seventy pages of argumentative reports of the sub-eommittea representing the various branches of trade and concludes by eaying that in view of these re-ports, and many others of like tenor, the memorial respectfully protests against enactment of the pending bill.

Jones, of Slew Park, Gives a Stirring Appeal to the Worshipers - Singular Vetalltv- Death ot a Tonog Ladj-Burglars at Worh-A Feature of tho IMebmtloB. Tuesday evening, June 3, the Seventh Day Advsntista oampmeetlng started out in full fores. Tbe first sermon of the regular meeting was preached by El0t I. D. Van Horn, of Michigan, npon the importance of Christians assembling themselves together and exortlng one another to faithful continuance in the things of God. Wednesday was a busy day for the campars,and according to the programme, several meetings wen held In the interests of their different branches of missionary work. At 2:30 o'clock, p. m., Elder A. T. Jonee uf New York gave a stirring appeal to all Seventh-dayAdveutists,ssttlng before them the necessity of their maintaining a right relation toward events that are transpiring in our country, ths relation whioh these events sustain to the work of Go4,and their duty to understand the underlying motives which actuate those who are framing laws to change the present farm of our government. The speaker went on to give some of what he claimed to be indications of impending danger. Among these were the attempts lately mads Iu the Senate and Honss of Representatives to legislate upon things that pertain solely to religion and religious observances. In this be referred to the Blair Sunday BUI in the Sen-ate, and a hill of similar Import introduced In the House by sir. Braokenridge, of Kentucky. The spsaksr claimed that all legislation for the promotion of nllgious obssrvanoes, -^all legislation whioh was intended to take from men the opportunity to do wrong-was virtually an attempt to make men good by law, wbicb was contrary to the spirit of Gospel; for the real work of the Gospel would make manly men. These Sundsy laws, be said, wore now huug up in Congress, but they might be taken down and pnt into force in a very short time. On account of the active opposition which tha Seventh-Day Advantiata have been making to religious legislation of every kind, they have been brought Into more prominence lately than ever before. This, the speaker claimed, to be a gnat advantage to them, and opens np an avenue for their work which they could not have without it. Mr. Jones saw in many great movements of the present time an indication that our government was gradually being urged to take upon itself the paternal garb, trying to pry into the secrets of individual life, and usnrping the rigltts of its subjects. He stood npon tbe ground that while then were State rights and National rights, there were other rights whioh the State and Nation had no authority to touch-the rights of the Individual subjects-and held that attempts at religious legislation would be the entering wedge of Church and Btate, and if adapted by this ' country, onr government would be taking npon itself the oharaoter of the papal government instead of holding to the gnat principles of true American liberty. The evening service was attended by a large audienoe, and tbe large pavilion was filled almost to Its entire seating capacity. Elder I. U. YauHorn again addressed the audience, taking as hie text Heb. 8:1. He said the great subjsot here was the contrast between the old and new dispensations and the transposition from the one to the other. Helehesideo and bis lineage was spoken of. Many questions an' raised as to who this peculiar person was, but tbe only thing that is known of him is that he is Helahesideo, king of Salem, without father or mother. The priesthood of Aaron reqnired that in order for a' man to be a priest, he must mnst trace his lineage direst from Aaron, but the priesthood of Melehesides required no such thing. When the sanctuary was to be built in tbe wilderness, the Lord ssid the tribe of Levi should be the priests. Now when we come down to Christ we Mud that the priesthood la ohauged back to tbe Meloheeideoal order. Chriet oame through the tribe of Juda, who was the oldest son of Jaoob, and this was in accordance with that ancient cos torn. Jfelohesldeo was both � priest and a king, and Christ according to prophecy la also to be a priest and a ruler, and haa been ever since he ascended to Heaven; and befoie he leaves his throne the sins of his people are to be blotted from the book of remembrance. Christ has an nnohangable priesthood because he ever llveth, and be makes intercession ror those that geek him. Tbe scriptures tell us that snob an high priest became us. Ho had a part in the work of creation, made all things, and yet gave himself a siorifloe for mau. He made no mistake in creation, and he will make none in redemption. He is sinless,'undsBled, and la separata from sinners, made higher than the heavens. Tbe soriptnres say that the end shall some when he givas up hiB throne. This throne is the throne of grace. Then sinners fall Into the hands of tbe living God, to be rewarded according to their works, and tboae who have been asoounted worthy of eternal life,, are given their grown of glory, Christ nigns on bis Father's throne until tha Father puts all things under the Son, then tbe Son takes hia own throne, which is the throne of David. Christ occupies four positions, in his work for man; first a prophet, second s sacrifice, third a priest, and fourth a king. Many people get the Idea that Heaven is an Imaginary place; but then ia a real Heaven, and when Christ ascended to that plana ha was not a spirit, but a real tangible being. The change from mortal to immortal Is not a vanishing out of sight, but simply a change accomplished in the twinkling of an eye; and the heavenly beings themselves an tangible in their form. The aacrifloe of Christ was not simply made to atone for Adam's transgression, but also for tha sins of the whole world, otherwise no one could be saved in all the world.    " The best of order is maintained on tbe gionnd, and everything seems to indicate a pleasant time. c. tt. s." THE SILVER QUESTION.

A Variety of Arguments Both For and Against the BUI As It How Standi-A Proposition ta Place Gold aad Sliver an > Parity-The Hliver Man Object-Haw the Mattel Stands. Washington, June 4.-The Republican representatives went into oauous immediately upon the adjournment of the House this afternoon to consider tbe silver question. It had been announced in advance by the leaden that the real purpose was a conference rather than a formal oanous. Chairman Conger, of the Coinage Com-mlttee, opened the proceedings by setting forth urgent reasons for passing a bill that should relieve tha country from the present contraction of curreaoj. He desired above all things that any silver bill that should beswme a law should be distinctively a Rapubliaan measure, and ha trusted that the party alignment would be preserved. He understood that a considerable number of Democrats stood ready to vote for a frae coinage bill, and in the event tbat a sufficient number of Republicans wan led off to carry suoh a proposition. It would be claimed a Democratic measure, a thing to be deprecated. Representative Payson followed with a savage attack npon the Caucus bill, which be said, waa a delusion and a snare. It failed to mast the wishes of tbe western people, and he could not support it nnder any circumstances unless it remonetiied eilver. At this point it was suggested that then waa no definite proposition before the caucus, so Representative Buchanan, of New Jersey, submitted a motion that the Caucus bill as it stated, be re-endorsed. Huou talk followed, and developed a diversity of views? Representative Walker, of Massachusetts, submitted a proposition, which In effect proposes a reference of tbe bill back to the former caucus committee, with Instructions to report a bill which will plaoa gold aad ailvsr an a parity by allowing the issue of certificates to an unlimited extant on deposits of either metal, at tha market value. The silver men immediately mads the objection tbat then Could be no parity as long as tha privilege of free coinage accorded to gold was denied to silver. Finally Representative MoKinley oame to tha front with a compromise proposition. He proposed that the treasury should punhase fonr and a half million dollars wortb of Amariaan silver each month; tbat the certificates in payment therefor ehonld be legal tender quality, redeemable in lawful money, that silver bullion might be solned to meat tha demand of production. Hie proposition also contained the national bank redemption fund feature of tbe Dorsey bill; also provision that when gold and silver reach par than shall be free coinage, It omits the bullion re demption provision of tbe oauous bill and waa therefore, Immediately assailed by seven! members on tbat account. The Speaker himself led ths attaek.and, after making a speech in favor of including tbe bullion redemption feature a vote waa taken, resulting in its Insertion in the MoKinley substitute. The substitute as amended wsa than adopted.. An effort waa made to sscnro the passage of a measure binding Republican members to support in tha Hons*, .this last oanoas meaaun. Representative Payson submitted a proposition contemplating the recognition of the right of Republican members to offer amendments to tbe bill when it comes before the house. This wsa nega  fassd?
