"If the Republican party docs not bmt Pati iaoK sixty thousand J shall not 7iave much respect for its ability"- William Ar Wallacb. Heldo.m have oar farmers been favored with a better season for securing their grass and grain orops. The weather' has been unusually accommodating. If the Democratic faotlona in South Carolina continue to bulldoze eauli other odb of them may next be heard oalliug on the Federal Government for troops.

The Explosion Injures and KiJls Many People and Causes a Fire. A CARTRIDGE FA0T0SY BLOWN UP. It is still a question in Chicago whether the Fair will be % success or failure. Says the Uirald: "Success means that Chicago may be ranked among the greatest cities of the world; failure means that she must drop down to third or fourth rank." If it be true, as the Democratic papers assert, that Senator Quay has embezzled thousands of tho public money, it is their bounden duty, as good citizens, to punish him. The courts of the State are open to them. Why won't they prove their assertions, if thsy oaa? People take no stock in such a rpckleu, random Assertion that shrinks from presenting any evidence in the way of proof. The Philadelphia Eoening Bulletin appeared do Monday in a new dress and in a new "makeup." So great was the change for ths better tbat one could scarcely recognize the old reliable Bulletin in the handsome and modernized paper, which is now printed by a Gobs web perfecting press at the rate of 30,000 complete copies an hour. Our enterprising contemporary was always a good newspaper, but with increased facilities for gathering and printing tho news as last as it occurs, it will naturally be better than ever before. Senator Blair is something of an original genius, and occasionally gets off a good thing. His speech on the Silver bill was one of these. It was not five minutes long, und did not give his reasons for his vote; apparently he had none of bis own, but he founded his vote on the actions of bis fellow Senators. One, Mr. Dolph, said he, would vote for it because he saw a gold standard in it; another, his colleague, Mr. Mitchell, discovered free coinage lurking iu it and accepted it on those grounds, while Mr. Plumb was sure it meant free coinage and Mr. Teller was uncertain about it. Under these circumstances Mr. Blair thought he could safely vote for the messure, which gave satisfaction to all. Wallac* on IJcUuiat�r. Shortly before the Scran ton conventiuu er-Senator Wallace was a visitor to the store of 3. M.

The latest advices say that ten persons, rooBtly railroad employes have been killed aud thirty or forty of the mil! employes wouuded. A great crowd has gathered at the scene and are assisting in fighting the fierce fires. The excitement at the place is so intense that it is diffiatilt to ob:ain any names of the killed or wounded, or definite in for mat ion of any sort. THE CYCLONE'S FUKKf. Crops Rained by Hull.

St. Paul, Minn., July 15.-The e-yaloue which smote Eastern Minnesota on Sunday has bad few parallels in this country aa regards the destruction of human lite. There i'b scarcely a doubt now that the number of victims will exceed 200. At Red Wing funerals have been teld right along during the day and mournful pro< cessions passed along the streets every few minutes, business houses were closed and In mouruing garb, while tho whole plaoe has an air of disconsolate grief. The awe following the terrible disaster to the pleasure steamer Sea Wing is now gradu pies about the same rpace a piano does They are, however, eminently practical machines, and with their aid some fifteen young ladies can count accurately a half million of names a day. It is expected tbat when the work of counting the census returns really begins there will be seventy or eighty of these maohines at work. The retnrns from tbe census districts throughout the country are coming in slowly, There are more than 50,000 of these districts, and so far only about 2,500 districts have seat iu their returns. As fast as the returns come iu they are counted, although not as rapidly aa thsy will be, as it is ne-oessary to train the young laiieAn the use of tbe maohines. In making thiB oonnt, whioh is known as the "rough count, the returns for eaoh district are counted twice. After being oounted on one ma. ebine they are passed over to another, and when the latter count ia completed the rwo �re compared, aud, if their are diacrepan-les, neceaaary oorreotions aro made. Fol' lowing this method, if the total population or the country is 60,000,000, there will be counted in the census office an equivalent to 120,000,000 names. The machines, which are the invention of Mr. Hallorith, and supplement bis tabulating machine, are very simple. A keyboard resembling that of a typewriter is at the right of the operator. Each key has a number, from one to twenty. The operator has a pile of census schedules at her left aide, and as she turns tbe sohedules over ehe notes the figures which indioatetha number of members in each family enumerated in tbat schedule. If there are five members in a family she strikes the key marked No. 5. When the key is struck an eleotric connection is established with the hands on a dial. That dial is marked No. 5, which means it reoorda the number of families consisting of five persons. Eaah time the No. 5 key is struck, the No. 5 dial reoorda one. When the count is completed tbe recorded number on eaah dial ia multiplied by the uumher of the dial, the results addsd up nod the total number of individuals In that disrtiot ia ascertained. If tbe same result is obtaiued by a different operator, then it is concluded tbat the count is oorreot. It is expeoted that by the use of these maohines the results of the census will be known muob sooner than by any other known method. a disastrous cloud burst. It Occurs in tho Wyoming Valloy and Causes a Flood, MTSHE80TA 0B0PS RUINED BY HAIL. Stanley's Early- Matrimonial Affair. Stanley bad a matrimonial affair of which be himself told. I think it was iu '07 or 'OS-any way, it was about the time of bis affair iu Asia Minor- that be stopped for a few weeks on one of the Ionian Islands. He met there a beautiful Greek girl to whom he took a fauoy. He oouldn't spsak ber language, uor she bis; but with the aid of an interpreter, be asked for and obtained bor hand. The girl's family was of the best and when'the wedding day came great preparations for the bridal event were made. Stanley took his stand bosido his bride that was to be and everything n-as in readiness for the ceremouy-at least so he thought. It happened, though, that it was customary in tbe Isluuds for the prospective husband to hand over to tbe father of Lis fiancee, prior to tho marriage, a sum of money in proportion to the beauty, rank aud aocom-ptishmcuts of his expeoted bride, as a aort of recompouso to ber father for the loss of his daughter and the ooet of bringing her up. Stauloy kucw nothing of this expectation, aud of course, made no move to hand over. Finally, the hard but businesslike father beckouod the interpreter and quietly told him to remind Stanley that he was overlooking an important feature of tbe marriage proceedings. Tbe interpreter complied. When he had made bia message clear to Staulcy, the destined explorer of world-wide fame pushed aside his affianced bride, to thB amazemout of tho gathered throng, drew the Interpreter by the arm to the presence of the puzzled father, and in his most indignant fashion ordered the interpreter to convey to hiB not-to-be father-in-law tbe message: "Sir, I came here to marry, not to buy, your daughter." So it happens that Henry M. Suuley has wedded Miss Dorothy Tennuut.

Wilkes-Bauue, July la -A terrific thunder storm and cloud burst ooourred over tbe Wyomiug valley late this afternoon, and in a lew minutes every inoh of lowland for miles around was covered with water. Tbo rain cams down in sheets while the oraah of thunder and vivid blinding flashes of lightniug struck terror to the hearts of the timid. The streets in the lower portion of the city were Hooded to the depth of six inobes, every cellar on Canal street being flooded and. thousands of dollars' worth of goods damaged. A washout on the Pennsylvania railroad delayed the passenger trains, while the New Jersey Central Railroad trains were compelled to come into tbe city on Lehigh Valley traokB. Tbe Jersey Central crossing at Market street was completely submerged, the water surrounding tbe station. The full extent of the damage oanuot as yet be ascertained, but it will foot up several thousand dollars. The railroad station and freight house belonging to the Little Miami railroad, together with all the adjacent buildings, were set ou fire and totally consumed. The havoc wrought by tbo explosion is dreadful. The track and tics of the railroad are fairly torn out of the ground. The Peters oartridge factory was burned to ths ground. Nothing but a mass of blackened, smothering ruins remain to mark the spot where the building stood. News from Kings mills st 9 o'olook tonight is that ten dead bodies have been taken from the ruins and tbirty are known to he wounded. Definite cows ia mora likely to swell the list of casualties than to dimioish it. rKKSONAL PESCIXINOS. BASE BALL. HECOBD. The Three Organizations and Their 8tending to Date. satiosai. league.

Secretary Blaine has written,a letter to Senator Frye saying that bo has received intelligence from Ha/ana that "American flour under tbe new duties imposed by Spain cannot reach the Cuban market under a ooat $11.40 per barrel. Counting the shipping price iu New York at |4 80 por barrel, Spain holds the markets for herself, and is able to send European flour at a price which totally excludes tho American flour from tbe markets of Cuba and Porto Rico. It would certainly be a very extraordinary policy on the part of our Government just at this time to open our market, without charge or duty, to the enormous orops of sugar-raised in the two Spanish islands. Here is an opportunity where tho farmer may be benefited-primarily, undeniably, richly benefited. Here is an opportunity for a. .Republican Congress Co open the markets of forty millions of people to the products of American farms. With nearly one hxtndred million dollars'worth of sugar seeking our market every year we shall prove ourselves most unskilled legislators if we do not secure alargefieM for the sale and consumption of our breadstuff, and provisions.
