EVENING EXPRESS KINSLOK BROTHERS . PUBLISHERS CURRENT COMMENT. Let everybody torn in now �ud make the Kep ublican majority iu Pennsylvania 100,000. The New York liquor dealers and the whisky trust me on tbe outs, and the public cares mighty little which party goes to tbe wall. So far tbejcrambliog about tbe ueusus reports and the i dissatisfaction expressed at the returns come from places which discover they have not grown aB rapidly as expected. Tbe census bureau is not to bo blamed for shortcomings of this character. X Citizens' Movement to reform Tammy Hall politics bas been inaugurated iu New York uuder somewhat encouraging auspices. Its inception and organization are somewhat similar to that of the famous Committee of One Hundred iu Philadelphia.        �__ Philadelphia was a trifle nervous at the, beginning of tbe week over a report that Chicago bad the greater population. Subsequently it waa ascertained that the Quaker City's population outnumbers that of tbe Windy City and the nervous ohil) passed away.

IMPORTANT MEETING OF DIRECTORS. The unanimous renomin�tioD of tbe efficient and popular.Secretary of Internal Affairs, Thomas J.

His name on tbe ticket will also satiBfy tbose Republicans who believe in giving Union soldiers a representation in the distribution of honor*. The "Original Package" muddle baa at last got into a sensible and practical shape in the bill reported by tbe- Honse Jadi oiary. Committee. Thia bill gives tbe States contol over the sale of all merchandise, including liquor, an soon as it is bald or offered for Bale.

Mr. Cor bin Say- That His P nr.. use Wft� to Surrender the Olllce rb Soou a the par-poies of Keorsraniiation Hati Been Con-MUtuui&tert-flla KecounroeiidalUm of a Saccesfor Promptly Accepted. Philadelphia, JuLe 27.--Austin (Sorbin formally resigned the PreBidenoy o( the Philadelphia and Reading Railroad today, and A. A. McLeod, tbe Vice President and General Manager, was elected to succeed bim. Mr. McLeod resigned from the Board of Managers, aud Colonel James Boyd, of Norristown, one of the attorneys of the company, wat* elected to Gil the vacancy. No other changes were made The board met at noon and Mr. Corbin's letter of resignation was read by tbe Secretary and attentively listened to by tbe board. Among other things Mr. Cofbin said that it had been his purpose to surrender tbe presidency as soon as a reorganisation had been consummated, and recommend the election of the vice president, Mr. A. A. McLeod, to till the vaoanoy which was promptly acted upon. Mr. MoLeod was the ouly candidate, and he was unanimously elected. His resignation aa a member of the board was then accepted, the charter of the company pie-venting tbe president from being a member of the board of managers. The vacancy was filled by the election of Colonel James Boyd, of Norristown, one of the attorneys of the company. other changes to bk made. Altor the meeting President McLeod'1 was warmly congratulated by the members of the board, all of whom have the highest opinion of his ability. He ac cepted tbe congratulations with becoming modesty, and when the managers left the room he returned to his desk and resumed his work as if nothing bad happened. No other changes will be made at present. It ib understood,however,that tbe election of Colonel Boyd is a temporary matter, and that when Mr. Corbin returns from Europe, he will take Mr. McLeod's place in the board. Whether other changes iu tbe board will be made at that time cannot be definitely determined now. A number of changes in the executive staff of the company will probably be made soon. It is said that General Superintendent Sweigard will be elected general manager in place of Mr. MoLeod, and that Mr. Bonzano will be made general superintendent. The board, however, has uot vet taken up the matter. the cha.xge kavorai1lv received. The news of Mr. Cor bio's resignation and Mr. McLeod s election spread rapidly this afternoon, and was the prevailing topic of discussion in railroad and financial circles. The opinion was universally expressed that Mr. McLeod's election was a fitting acknowledgment of his ability as a railroad manager and his intelligent and faithful work in the company's behalf.

Did you know tbat Queen Elizabeth ate with her fingers? You may have known tbat she loved show and style, tbat she was so iond of fine clothes tbat when ahe died she left 3,000 dresses and any quantity of jewels; but did you ever imagine that such a great lady could be so inele gant as to eat with her fingers? But she did, and Shakespeare, and Chaucer, and William the Conqueror, and King Alfred, and everybody else who lived before her time. These last wore more excusable than she-they bad no forks; but even she was not without excuse, for though she had several, they had been given her as curiosities, which, I suppose, nobody expected her to use. There was one of crys-, tal garnished with gold and sparks of garnet, another of gold with two little rubies and two pendent pearls, and still another of coral. Why didn't abe ua% them* you ask. Well, because she bad never eeen known anybody tbat used jdc, and they were something new; aud, besides, there was a prejudice against thia invention just from Italy. But you must not think because there were no forks that the old fashioned made no pretentions to elegance or refinement. The guests bad knives and tbey bad fingers, and with these two fm plements they managed nicely. From their old books of etiquette we learn how they did it. In the first place, tbe fingers must be publicly washed before beginning tbe meal, even if thia had just been done privately, it must be repeated at the table, tbat no one might feel uneasy in eating after bis neighbors' flngerB bad been in tbe dish. To aid further, the meat was pre* pared as far as possible before it was brought on the table. If io a stew as was usually the case, it was in bits; if roasted, it was cut by a carver, and passed large plates with a knife. As to tbe way of helping himself, each guest must choose and keep a particular part of the dish for his own. He must help himself daintily from this place, using only three fingers', afterward, in carrying the food to the mouth, which, of course, was done with the hand; these same three muat be used, taking care, however, not to touch tbe nose with them, to do which was extremely inelegant, and showed lack of good breeding. Of course all this soiled the hands, and in refined households at various intervals bowls of perfumed water and different napkins were passed, and no one must refuse to wash. This old fashion of banding round a silver bowl or dish of rose water is still sometimes seen in Europe, THE FATAL SOUTH FORK BAM Civil Engineers to Discuss the Made by the Experts.

Civil EnKina.ni Now In Sesaloa at Vreason Hav. the Beport of Those Who Made the Examination-A Larger Waste Weir Would Have Prevented the Dlwuter-. Base Ball Soon*. Pittsburg, June 27.-There are proa peats of some lively times duriag the convention of civil engineers now in session at Cresson Bpringa over the action of the committee appointed almost a year ago to investigate in regard to the condition of SSnth Fork dam before the Johnstown flood. Tbe committee investigated the matter thoroughly and sealed ita. report, but did not band tbe letter in at the last meeting of tbe society held in January. The reason given by the committee waa tbat tbey did not desire to become involved in litigation over tbe flood pending then at the present meeting. Tbe committee has given it out generally that no report will be made unless it is forced by tbe society. Tbe sealed report is aaid to contain some highly interesting data concerning the condition of the South Fork dam prior to the flood. It is stated on good authority that tbe report states that tbe dam was structurally as perfect as it could be made. The evidence, by circumstance, that at the time of the flood afoot of water passed, over tbe dam for two hours, and that when at last the dam broke it did so from ibe top. It is said tbat tbe report will further state tbat a large waste weir might have prevented the flood. Many members df the society are already clamoring for the report and many stories are current. They will be in order Saturday when a business session will be held. HILL FAKM HEROES. Th.v Rl.k Tkelr Live, to Ascertain  I Fate or the Catombed Miner*. - Ddnbar, Pa.;' June 87.-The flames which have been burning in the Hill Farm mine burst from tbe mouth of the pit at 8:30 o'clock to-night and leaped thirty: feet in the air. All efforts to extinguish the flames have proved fruitless and the build ings is the vicinity have been torn down to prevent tbe fire from spreading. A hurried consultation followed between the inspectors and Master Workmen Watohorn as to tbe advisability of abandoning the search for the imprisoned men. It waa the belief of tbe inspectors that it was absolutely dangerous to proceed further, but they decided to finish the work themselves. A hole has been drilled into, the Hill Farm mine and at 11 o'clock the ins pea-tors started on their perilous search. Tbey have taken their lives in their own hands,, and may never see daylight again. It is feared tbe mine is on fire all through, or else full of smoke. In either case tbe danger is very great. It is of a character that tries to the utmost tbe courage of man. In the dark, with tons of loose earth above them, a false step or any kind of a move may bring death in an instant. OoUars a Foot Lang. You would be amused to see the silver dollars tbat compose the stock of tbe Government assayer at the Treasury building. Each one of them is about a foot long, of a narrow oval shape, and perforated with hundreds of little round holes. Suoh is the form they appear in after being rolled out thin and punched witb a machine. They are sent in from the mints as specimens, taken at random from every fresh lot made, and it is the duty of the assayer to find out whether these samples are of the weight and fineness required by law. -Washington Star.
