Tue way in which the Western stctioa or tbo United States is preparing for the Chicago Exposition is an admonition to tfee East. California is getting ready for a display of bor resources and products that will be a grand exhibition lu it so If, and Utah, from which few people ou the Atlantic coast would expect anything, has asked for ten acres of space. Hoy. Ricbaud Yacx, who was elected to Congress for the unexpired term of the lato Samuel J. Randall, seems to be possessed of too much of tbo elements of the Roholnrly gectlornaa and respectable citizen to suit the ward bosses of his Congressional district, nonce, they have decreed that he uiu&t be thrown overboard to make room for a trained politician of their own kind. President McLeod, of tbo Reading Railroad, leads off in what must eventually become the universal order in this country as it is Id England-tbo abolition of all grade crossings. These are weak points which neither the railroads nor the ootn-muuity can afford to maintain. Every city street and every country road should bo carried either over or under the railroad tracks that cross it, then there would bo no detention of fast trains and no fatal accidents to absent-roinded travelers on the highways. The arrest of John Dillon, AX. P.i sod William O'Brien, on charges of conspiring to p.event Irish tenants from paying their rents, will reflect anything but credit on the English. Government if, as we arc now advised, the offenses alleged were committed in public speech. In this country, where freedom of speech is guaranteed in the constitution, the arrests will aronso indignation as well as wonder that England should oommit so Berious a blnnder. Messrs. Dillon and O'Brien wore coming to America iu October, and it is probable that their apprehension was due to the desire of the English authorities that two such powerful advocates of Ireland's cause should be prevented from com jug here to relate their version of the wrongs of Ireland. THE REPUBLICAN CAUCUS. Tho House Will Endeavor to Get a Quorum By Moral Suasion, ABSENTEES BITTEHLY DENOUNCED The allegation has been made that Colonel MaClura had said that Senator Qua; had said to him months ago: "I have been making Governors all my life, but I have never had one of my own. I am going to nominate Delamaifer and know how it feels to own a Governor just , for once." Senator Quay denies that he ever said anything of the kind. Now Colonel MoClure says that he did not use the word^ attributed to him, but "the substance of tho assertion (first made by Sir. Chris. Magoo) may bo found in a dozen articles in the ZViueiduring the past year." This is a disingenuous way of getting out of a scrape. Colonel McClure did nut use the exact words, but he meant them, and ho now wishes bo had said them. Senator Qnay's emphatic denial is worth a good deal more than Colonel McCIure's insinuations.___ Letter 1,1st.

For Seeming the Attendance Of Oerettct Conirreiitnen- Some Talk of Imposing Heavy Fines to Bring Them to Their Sensen. WASnrKfiTOX, Sept. 22.-About the only conclusion reached by tho Republican representatives id caucus thia afternoon was to go on with the Langston-Venable election case at all hazards. There was long discussion, and some members who have been lukewarm in their support of the elections committee, and others who are oxtroamly anxious to got away to attend to private business or political mat tors, sought to escape the necessity of remaining in the oity. There were also several members who were induced to remain over Sunday by a promise that the election oases should bo disposed of to-day, and they expressed a good deal of disappointment at tho failure of a quorum to materialize to-day. But the largo majority of the members present took tho ground tbat it would be bad policy to retreat, and they succeeded in getting the caucus to arrive at the determination above noted. There was some lively denunciation of tho members who by their absence, it was alleged, retarded public business and postponed an early adjournment, and there was some talk of fining them heavily if they failed to appear. But nothing of this kind waB agreed upon, and the oauous after going over tho list of absentees and receiving statements from the state delegations, satisfied itself that a quorum could be obtained by moral suasion, and did not adopt mora vigorous measures than coiila bo contained in appealing telegrams to tho absentees. rST TUE 3esate. The Senate to-day resumed consideration of the bill to deQno and regulate the juris, diction of the United States oonrta. Daniels' ameudment, offered Saturday, was rejeoted. The bill went over. C0SDITI03 of TrlE COSVEHEKCK. At a late hour to-night it was the confident expectation of the Republican conferees on the Tariff bill that on Wednesday or Thursday at the latest would be witnes sed the opening debate on the adoption of the bill by the House. The bonding period has been definitely settled, February 1st being agreed upon. There is, it is thought, good rBason to predict that the free sugar standard will bo placed at thirteen and not at sixteen as proposed by the House, tbat a compromise generally favorable to the House rates will be the outcome of the disputes over the various items in the schedule, and that binder twine also will be subject of compromise. Tbe Southern Republican Congressmen held a mooting to-night and adopted resolutions declaring that it wad eBgButial to the interests of their constituents that the tax on tobaoco, should be left as fixed by tho House. Some of them were quite emphatic in expressing their determination to carry their point on this matter. ----. i*. School Teacher's Walking. Last Saturday afternoon a party of Reno-vo lady sobool teachers walked from that place to Wotham, where they boarded a train and enjoyed a ride back home by rail. The News says the pedestrian party consisted of Misses Maud SaunderB, Agnes NicholsB, Mary Hall, Teresa Dleffenbach and Mamo Dieffcnbacb. Next Saturday the ladios propose to start early and walk to this city. Wotham is half the distance from Renovo to Lock Haven, and the ladies are confidentof their ability to roach this city if the weathor is favorable next Saturday. -- *--- Jail Breakers Foiled.

Long silence ensued, i>nd the burglar began work again. Ooos more be was ordered in sepulchral toneB to "oomo off the perch."

'The evidenoe was taken at' tbe office of 'Sqaire ~ Benjamin Grnbcr, at Shoemakersville. .

This term is applied to the foil moon wlifch comes noare%^ to7 th4'Autumnal equinox, la 1890 the harvest moon will happen on SeJrtembeVStfc The moon was on the wane when iho cnonth began. Ou the 14th it entered its new stage, on the 21st it arrived at its half -phase, and seven days later its full Ijroad " disk will be seen swinging InWs vie* over the easterly horizon as the'emVeinbohv of sight in tbe west;' The peeulisrity 1 which has given- this partioular fall ttrdon this designation is the fact that it rises on several- eacoessive evenings at nearly the" '-same time by the dock.

To tile simple-minded peasants of England of an earlier age this singular'''eon-'; duet of the September full tnoan was looked upon as 'providential.
