The receipts for the first year amounted to 9402,938. The receipts for the year ending June 1,1800, reached 81,078,847 03. Gbaunct H. Dipew has been suggested as the most available Republican candidate Tor Mayor of Hew York City. It baa been estimated that he would get 50,000 Demooratia votes, and although this is rather extravagant, it is an indication of his remarkable popularity at home. The spti-ig meeting of the Pennsylvania State Board of Agriculture will be held at Wellsboro, Tioga county, on the 11th and 12th of Jane. A large number of prominent agriculturists will discuss the topics that concern farmers most nearly, one whole session being devoted to the all-absorbing road question. The election in Oregon of a Republican Congressman and a Republican Legislature, and the election of a Democratic Governor is satisfactory. Governor Pen-noyor is a popular man, and is strong far beyond his party. The State is Republican to the core, the majority being in the neighborhood of 5,000. The Congressman and the Legislature, whiah carries' the United States Senator, ensures the State indefinitely hereafter. Op course importers want to import That's their business. Eqnally of course, our manufacturers want to manufacture, our producers to produce, for that's their business. But the theory of protection is that the producers are to be protected as the moat valuable to the nation. In arraying themselves iu opposition Co the McEinley Tariff bill, importers are flsht-ins for their own peculiar interests and the interests of foreign producers. They are squarely attacking the great national interests of America. Children.' Day Frog/ram. Cbildrsna' Day will be fittingly observed at Trinity M. E.

In 'His Remarks tlio Senator Connect, the Queitlun of Silver Willi Protection, Ar-Entng the Faint ThoronEUly ami Fnlly and Showing- That Silver as an American Product Has a Greater Place TtuuOthora. Washington, June 9.-In the Senate to-day a new conference was ordered on the Dependent Pension bill, and Davis Sswyer and Blodgett were appointed son-ferrees. Mr. Plumb then addressed the Senate on the Silver bill. In his remarks he aaid the Senator from New York (Biscock) had yesterday described the great wealth and proaperity of the country, bat if the picture were true why was it that the Senator and hiB committee, the Finanoe Committee, were piling up protective duties? If there was such financial health and soundness and prosperity why not let the Tariff alone and let the financial system of the country alone. His idea was that not only should the vacanoy of the national bank circulation be made up without charge, but there ought to be added to that at least as much as would reBult from the free coinage of silver. He was willing to abandon his idea fa favor of fiat money, and to widen the base of credit structure by addidg to it all the silver that the United States mint could turn out. Plumb went on to speak of the Silver bill in connection with the question of protection. The Senate had been appealed to yesterday by the Senator from New York against the bill iu the sacred name of protection. He would not call it a feltob, although he did cot know what he would oall it before he got throngh, but iu its name the Senate was aaked to keep silver dethroned. Silver was an Ameriaan product, a mnoh larger product than many others which were to be protected by duties of 200 or 300 per cent, under the eoming tariff bill. He would like to ask the Senator from New York who was so anxious about foreign commerce? What he intended to do wi th the Tariff bill which would prevent the United States from having any foreign commerce? He showed tbat.be might interpret the Senator's remarks on that point as a hope augury of the aotion of that Senator in patting his knife into the bill now before the Finance Committee, a bill which would raise the price of nearly everything used by the masses of people. His cleik explained that point of his argument. It did not follow as a matter of course that the export trade would bediminished. If the United States could place in the markets of the world what it had to sell and could compete with other producers the nations would buy it and just to the extent that the Uaited States did not take foreign Droduots in exchange for what is exported. Would the balance of trade in favor of the unlimited states be increased? Gold would come to pay thosB balances.. The bill was laid aside and the Senate after an execntive session adjourned. BASF.

Between twelve and one o'clock the rain poured and the wind'blew. The tenten took it kindly without''a murmur. A* usual at half paat two o'floek the congregation gathered in the large pavilion and Elder A. Jones, of New York City, spoke again, taking bla text frees Isaiah 4522. "Look and Live." Tbui'tay* so and It I* so. It is by grace that; we are aaved. Not by work* of righteousness. Kph. 2:3, 0. We want righteousness. We need It. We must have It or perish. We mnst nek lor it Where shall we aeek, and how? We might seek for it in a wrong way, and thus never obtain it Then again whose ilghtaquneai must we have f' We read hereyln font. 855, thtt it ia His, or God's righteousness, whiah is declared for the remission of aim that are past. We come to thatidghteonaneaB by faith in Christ. It ia a*lrae gilt-Rom. 5:17,18. We do not work to make our-selvee righteous, but keeanae we are righteous. We are wanted righteous by faith in Christ. Our works never commend us to God. Gad Will never be any better to no- than he now ;Ia. Jam** 1:17, Heb. 13:8. When oar sins are shown n* we confess them, Which ' bring* us to see aa God �**. The Lord *aid to David that he had sinned. David laid I have. ~ He does not deny it, bnt any* it ia so. He then tanked at it just a* God did. Pa. 53:31 God waa right in charging the ain upon David; then, David was right in confessing it. Then God could be just in forgiving the ain and the righteousness of Christ could be- imputed to him by his faith in Christ We have heard it said by �ome that this people do not preach Christ bnt believe they ere saved by keeping the law. Now after hearing for ourselves, we moat aay we sever have beard Christ preached aa we have by them. He is the Alpha and the Omega in all their preaching. They preach Him aa the Creator of the world, as the Leader and Gnlde of his people in all the peat, as having oome assuming our natnre, aa dying anon th* cross, a* being buried, as being raised from the dead and amending into Heaven, as now appearing before God a* our High Priest, as preparing to oome again to this earth to fulfill the promise. A* Crestor, having all power given him by his Father. A* the Leader of his people as seen in the angel in whom the name of God w*a. Aa having come ia seen in the babe in the manger. Dying upon the cross when the rooks rent and the ann refused to shine; aa buried when the seal and guard of the highest potentate of earth attempted to hold bin In the tomb.

Preparing to oome again a* seen in the message of warning now going to all the world. Christ ia their theme always. They believe that they and all are under obligations to keep God's law, not to merit salvation, bat to do good because we are good. They understand that every christian should obey God because it Is right and all christians wsnt to do right. We believe the people of Look Haven will see it exemplified to their satisfaction, that a oamp meeting can be held and have order prevail. We will now return to the next aermon Friday evening. Elder Van Horn preached as bad been announced upon the subject of the fate of the wicked. Before commencing his discourse, he said, as the sun went down the Holy Sabbath of the Lord began. Bible time ia. so recorded. He was sorry that at such a time he was to speak upon so dark a side of the question. He would prefer to apeak of the reward of the righteous, God has revealed In bie word what, would become of the finally w inked. That the great mass of the human family are wicked must be admitted by all. The popular idea la that that class will lire eternally In torment He read Matt. 85:46, Lake 16, and many other scriptures showing that eternal punishment did not and oonld not mean eternal torment. Showed bow unreasonable it would be to punish Cain five thousand yean longer than Booth, both committing the same crime. From Mai. B, ISA, Rev. 80 and other text* that the final end of all the Impeni- tent would be death. Not life in torment but death. He read from Ezek. 28, that Satan himself, spoken of here nndar the symbol of the King of Tyros, will be bronght to sshes and will never be any mora. " In closing tbe apeaker carried the minds of bis hearers In the other direction. The new heavens and the new earth ia promised to tbe righteous. This earth is to be melted, not burned, and to some from that condition back Into its Eden beauty. He read from Rev. 21 and 2 Peter, 8, and other parta of the Bible. The large congregation present listened with marked attention. Light emenated from tbe Bible aa never before to many. To bear onoe ia only to have ajdesire to hear more. 8o the meetings are increasing in interest and In nnmben. If It continues fair no donbt many will avail themselves of the opportunity to attend to-morrow. None Fill regret it if the do we are sura. We understand the meetings will close Tuesday morning, then the oampmeeting will be a matter of the past, but we hops the good impressions msde upon the minds of those who have listened may be lasting, and many may have a high estimate of the Bible and the religion it teaches than before, xxx. LIGHTNING, WTND iND RAEN C1TT SCHOOL BOAST*. VIKVfINO TBK COtJJrrHT. A Canute TourThrenih the Mountain portions of Lycoming- and Vleajav Csamtlee. From the Wllllamsport Hepubllean. Ex-Sheriff P. B. Smith, of Look Haven, and D. A. Cochran, proprietor of the Gamble House, Jersey Shore, accompanied by their wives, have been making a tour by carriage throngh the mountainous portions of Lycoming avd Tioga eonntie* this week. Monday they drove up Lyoomlog creek to Roaring Branch, where they tarried daring the night. The drive was exceedingly pleasant, as the scenery along the creek is always oharming, but at this season of the year it ia more delightful than at any other time. Tuesday they continued their drive to Troy, passing Canton and the famed Minnequa Springs on the way. The pretty oottagee of the Davenports and "Davy Crockett's Lodge" wen closely scanned as they passed, and Mr. Smith was so delighted with them that he almost concluded to erect one oo some of th* height* overlooking Look Haven before another Summer aolstioe is passed. They spent the night at the pretty borough of Troy, end Wednesday they drove over to Wellsboro, arriving then soon after 7 o'oloek in the evening. The distance is 'twenty-eight miles, and they bad an opportunity of seeing much of the county of Tioga. Mansfield, one of the pnttiest town* in tbe comity, the seat of the Normal School, waa paased on the way. The night was spent at the Colas House, Wellsboro, and early Thursday morning they started for Bloasburg. Before bidding adieu to Wellaboro, however, they drove ont to the pretty cemetery on the hillside and examined the unique tomb just oompteted by Hon. 8. F. Wilson. It is fashioned after a typical Western log cabin, covered with bark, and it la believed that its counterpart doea not exist lu the world. It ia constructed of Ohio blue stone, dressed to resemble notched logs, and the tomb Inside, where the ex-Jurist expects to be laid when he receive* hi* "final orders," is covered with a ponderous marble slab weighing 1,850 pounds. Mr. and Mn. Smith returned home last night, highly delighted with their trip. Work or the Wind. The wind got in some pretty lively work at WiUiamsport yesterday afternoon and among other things that suffered from the effects of it waa the "Battle of Gettysburg," which is located under a large tent in Ross Park. The Sun, of that city, aays: There were several persona on the plat form in the tent and the lecturer was graphically describing the daring deeds of Pennsylvania's biggest battle field, when the wind took a hand in the performance and ohanged the scenery very quickly and in a way that it la surprising .that none of the visitors were injured. Thewindstruok the tent so suddenly that tbe manager bad no tima to strengthen the guide rope* and the entire tent waa flattened to th* platform. Those persons In the tent had to lie down and crawl out to the steps where the manager assisted them to get out. Fortunately no one was injured aud it waa a lueky incident, for tbe centre pole la a large one and went down with the nat. -�-- -- Homo Grown abrawbarrlM.
