''The cost of getting elected to the Son-ate from California is about 300,000,'* So says Mr. M. H. Da Young, of the San Francisco Chronicle, now iu Chicago. He declares that he will not buy an office at that or any other figure. But if the Sona-torship is offered to him be will not refuse it. The office- of County Commissioner is of great importance to tho people and they can safely trust the duties of the position to Jlcssrs, Frank 12. Welsh and Andrew C. KiBBell, both of whom are practical, sensible business men. Every effort should bo made by the Republicans to elect them. The name of James W. Fredericks should appear on the legislative rolls at Han isburg this winter and if the Republicans of Clinton county do tbeir full duty he will be our next Representative and a very creditable one bo would make, too. Bo sure that his name is on your ticket whea you come to vota next November. George R. McCkea tills the position of Associate Judge in a manner cutirety satisfactory to the people and they propose to retiiu him in hia present position. He ia one of the strongest and most popular candidates on tho Republican ticket and his friends intond to work earnestly to secure hia election. When men like Mr. McCrea arc nominated for office tbe voters should take pride in electing them. Jamkb J&fkeius is one of the represeu-tativo citizens of the county and it would be hard to And a more capable man for ProUionotary. It ia time to make a change in this ofiice and Mr. Jeffem is just i.hcj man for the place. Tbere is--.no question on this point and ho should receive a heavy majority, especially ia Lock Haven where he is �o well and favorably known. The Sherifl's office has bceu ably conducted by Republican officials for nearly three years past and it should be placed in ohaTge of a Republican fur another three years. A. U.

THEEE BEPUBLI0AN3 OPPOSED TO IT The Oeaiocrata Slake Good U#je of thaFlve Huurfl 13ebate-Mc4Uoo Characterize! the B1U at* a Declaration or War Against the World-Vigorous Opposition to Reciprocity. Washington, Sept. 2S.-The House yesterday promptly ended their labors on the Tariff bill by concurrence in the report of the conferees by the decided vote-152 yeas to 81 cays. Bat tbree Republicans Coleman, of Louisiana; Featberstone, of Arkansas, and Kelly, of Kansas-voted in the negative. The aotion of Mr. Coleman 'iB regarded as a most extraordinary proceeding, as his State will be benefitted to tbe extent of eight million dollars a year in bounties. Kelly of Kansas, being a granger, and making a bid for the Farmers' Alliance vote, was influenced in his aotion by considerations of policy. A report will reach the Senate Monday and will immediately be called up for limited debate and a speedy vote. The fate of the report is in doubt, as five of tbe w oh torn Senators-lagalls. Plumb, Paddock, Davis and Pierce-havo indicated their dissatisfaction -with tbe action taken on binding twine. If they should persist in this feeling and carry out their threat, tbe vote will be uncomfortably olose and the report may be defeated. There is no doubt of the. anxiety of members of the committee and the Republicans generally as to what may happen. It is not believed that all theso Senators will take the responsibility of defeating the measure upon which tbe very existence of the Republican party depends. A prominent member ot the committee said tbat the Tariff bill is the most pronounced in tbe line of protection which has ever passed the two houses of Congress. If this should fail, the Republican party will be held responsible for this violation of pledges brought about by these Ave Senators. action os the  ItEPOllT. When the House met Saturday morn* ing Mr. McKinley gave notice that he would demand the previous question at 5:30 o'clock. There was a grumble from the Democratic side of the House, but the consent was given. Mr. McKinley then made a business statement of the ohanges between the provisions of the House bill and the bill as it passed the Senate. Regarding the Bug&r schedule, he said that after a hard fight the Senate conferrees had yielded and made sugar up to No. 16 free. Over No. 10 the duty was placed at five-tenths of a cent with an additional one tenth of a cent on aU sugar coming from countries where bounties were paid to domestic producers. In regard to the subjeot of binding twine he expressed his opinion was too low. Mr. Flower said the measure was nothing but a cyclone bill, tho whole point of which was to cut off trade between this and other countries and which would eventually ruin 300,000 New England workingroen. Mr. Turner kicked about the limit on debate and said that the bill was a sectional bill calculated to ruin the South. He objected to the reciprocity clauses because it would result in no benefit to the Halted States. Mr. Herbert, Alabama, also objected to a reciprocity idea, on tne grouud that it is impracticable. some democratic howls. Mr. Cummiugs made a speech against the whole tariff system, and gave it as his idea that tho protection train would soon be dumped. Mr. Peters, of Kansas, caused a good bit of amusement by asking that it be made a penal oflenae for any member to introduce a bill for the revision of tho tariff during the next ten years. Mr. Dolliver, of Iowa, believed that the ponding bill was the moat complete and national measure which has ever been presented to Congress in the whole history of the country. Mr. Ilitt, (Ul.) said that the bill reducod on many articles-in all eighty millions- but increased tho tariff on some, and greatly on the wino and spirit sabedule. This was opposed by a powerful borne interest, as it might diminish trade, and by a strong foreign influcnco, as it would chill 'other nations. Mr. Cander (Mass.) said that in many particulars tho bill was not in accord with his judgment; but ho believed that every njjin had a fair hcariug, and that under no circumstances was it possible to have the l.iriff bill without making concessions. utniii: owa'ions. Mr. Morse, of Massachusetts, said that the business interests demanded the passage of tbe bill. The uncertainty banging over tariff legislation must como to an end, and ho would vote for the bill hoping that a future Congress would right tho great wrong to his constituents contained iu tbe cordage provision of tbe measure. Mr. Dingley, of Maine, argued that the result of the bill would he to increase our foreign trade by increasing prosperity at home. Mr. MoAdoo, of New Jersey, characterized the bill as an international declaration of war against the world. Mr. McMillin then made tho dosing speech for the Democratic side of tbe House. The bill as agreed to increased by one dollar the tax paid by every Caucasian negro, man, woman and child in the land. Referring to the reciprocity amendment, he deolared that tbe reciprocity provision of tho bill was a cowardly surrender of the highest prerogative of the House. The bill gave the President power not exeroisod by the Czar of Russia. He appealed from the majority of the House to the people who made and unmade Con~ grosses. closing the debate. When Mr. McMillin had finished Major McKinley arose to make the closing argu ment. It was not he said, a bill of retaliation or a bill of dfplomacy; it was a bill for the people of the United States to supply them with the necessary revenue to meet tho current expenses. Tho committee had so discriminated in the adjustment of tho tariff as to give protection to our people, defense to their industries and a compensation to make up tho difference between the prices paid labor in Europe and prices paid labor in the United States. The mere words of the gentloman of Tennessee, or of other gentlemen, wore only the words of tho press of England or of the press of othor countries. On this question, in opposition to this bill, Great Britain and the Democratic party were in uuholy alliance. (Applause on Republican side.) what the  bill is. This bill, if it became a law, would put upon tho free list one-half of all the pro-duots which the United States imported- the like of which was nover known in any Tariff Bill passed by the Congress of the United States. Under the Mills bill only 40 per cent, of foreign importations were placed upon the free list. The bill recognized the principle which was found in tho Morrill act--a principle on which this country had risen to bo tho iirst^manufacturing nation of the world. The gentlemen on the other side would tax the people of the oountry to make an income for the governmeut; the Republican party would tax tho product of other people seeking markets in the United States to supply the necessary revenues of the government. The previous question was ordered- yeas 151, nays TO. The conforenoo report was then agreed to-yeas 152, (tbe Speaker voting in the affirmative); nays 81. Mr. McKinley then reported from the Committee on Ways and Means a resolution providing for final adjourn meat next Tuesday, and it was adopted without a division and the House, at 6:50 adjourned. the session' nearly ended. Washington, Sept. 28.-When the Senate meets to-morrow morning tbo report of tbe conference committee on tbe Tariff bill will be ready for presentation, aud will paobably be taken up at once for consideration.   How muoh time will be consumed iu the discussion cannot be accurately stated, for the rules of the Senate do not permit the limitation of debate, except by  unanimous consent, but the leaders ou both sides were confident on Saturday that a vote could bo reached by Tuesday at the farthest.  If that proves to be tho case, the ffoal adjournment will follow the next day.  Whatever tbe result tbe adjournment will come tho day after tho repoit is disposed of. So far as known, Carlisle aud McPberson  (if he be well euough to talk) are the only Senators on tbe Democratic side of the chamber who will make speeches ou the report.   Ou the Republican side, Mr. Aldrioh, who will submit the report, will probably answer them.  Sir. lugalls had not decided tonight whether or not to make a speeob. Some   discussion   of   the   report  by tho   Republican    Senators   who    arc not satisfied with its recommendations ia anticipated, but how wido a range it will take or extend, it cannot be foretold.   In addition to the tariff bill there is only one othor measure, the general deficiency bi which is likely to recoivo tho attention of tho Senate prior to au adjournment. That is now pending in the House and will be ready for consideration by tho Senate ou Tuesday.    With tho exceptiou of tbo adoption of the conference report on the general deficiency appropriation bill, tho House has completed its labors for tho session aud wails upon the pleasure of the Senate as tu tho date of final adjournment. During tho time between Lo-raorrow aud that date the business tnw.aactod will doubticso hw largely made up of measures t:ikcn irrvgularly from the  calendar to which there is no pronounced  opposition. It may be that an effort will be made to pass the two shipping hills �out over by tho Senate, out this will bo strongly resisted by the Democrats, aud unless special provision is made for their consideration tho effort is likely to fail. Moreover as there is little prospect of the maintenance of a quorum, nothing can be done without unaairaous eonaeot. work ok the fifty-I'IKST C0Nr.liP.S8. Washington, Sopt.IlS.-Intwour three days the long session of tho Fifty-first congress will come to an end, and its work is already practically finished. It has been almost tho longest ever held, and in many respects the most Interesting session for many years. Although the first session of the Fiftieth congress lasted until October 20, the present session by reason of its longer daily sessions, has far exceeded it in working time, and. the amount of legislative work actually accomplished has been extraordinary, viewed in the light of previous congresses, and of the unusually important obaraoter of the measures considered. In figures the business of the session Is expressed as follows: Bills and joint resolutions introdvoedia tbo house, 12,402; in the senate, 4,570, or a total of 16,972, against 15,578 In the first session of tbe last congress which, in this matter, far exceeded all previous records. Reports mado in the house, 3,215; in tho senate, 1,817 (do account being taken in the senate of other than written reports.) Bills passed: By the houBe 1,292, of whioh the senate has passed 349; aU etc ope a few of theso 84D have become laws or are awaiting tho President's approval; by the senate 1,100, of which 43b' have been sent to the President, mako & total number of about 1,335 acts or laws. Of these acts, 606 Bouse and 275 Seuato bills were for pensions to Individuals, It is probable that in the few remaining days of tbe session the list of Senate bills eu-aotod into laws will bo considerably increased, as the House will have an opportunity to digpoae of a number now on tbe calendars while awaiting the Senate's passage of the Tariff bill. In the completed work of the session, aside from the revision of the tariff and internal revenno laws by tho McKinley-Aldrioh "tariff bill," the following measures enacted into laws may he named as tho moat important: The biJI providing for tbe monthly purchase of 4,500,000 ounces of silver, the customs administrative bill, the dependent and disability pension bill, the anti-lottery bill, tbe provision for a World's Fair in Chicago in 1S93 to celebrate tho four hundredth anniversary of the discovery of America, the admission of Wyoming and Idaho to statehood, the meat inspection bill, tho land grant forfeiture bill, the original package bill, the bill recommended by tho international maritime conference to prevent collision at sea, and the provisions (in the naval appropriation bill) to add to the new navy three Une-of-battle ships, one protected cruiser, one torpedo caulser and ouo torpedo boat.

Mai a and Van Ain'mrgh** Mastodon Show* Consolidated. A new and desirable era has been inaugurated by tho fortvitous blending of these two great leading shows. What the Van Am burgh show is and what it has been for over half a century is so patent to everybody that it is like gilding refined gold and painting the lily to descant on its w ell-known superiority. Of the Walter L. Main show it is equally needless to speak in words of sounding praise. Nothing then can be more meritorious and attrcotive than their limitless wealth of consolidated marvols. The vast multiplicity of novel feats, features and arenio episodes that by 'association they are enabled to present to the public, oan not be mentioned within the limited space of any newspaper article, and we can only, therefore, mention a few in the briefest outline. We will oall attention to Madame DuBois, the French Hercules, who outpulls tbe most power-ful team of horses that can be produced; Mons. Leonard, the man with jaws of steel, who lifts a ponderous horso with his teeth alone; Jumbo, the giant horse; Hazel, the Rlondin pony, who walks a tight-rope suspended fifteen feet in mid-air; Dan Rice, tho talking horse; a den of performing lions; Romeo, the performing elopbant; forty first-class performers; ton beautiful lady aritistea. Como early and see the grand street parade, bauds of music, golden chariots, Wild Burt and Colorado, together with a band of cowboys. Also a grand free performance, worth coming one hundred miles to see; it costs you nothing. The price of admission has been placed within the reach of all, making it the cheapest and best show on earth. Remember tho day and date, and remember that one 25 cent ticket admits to all the departments of the big show. Lock Haven, Tuesday October 7.

Farm or Puttison In Town. The Express and Democrat on Saturday contained notices that Robert E. Pattison,1 the Democratic nominee for Governor, accompanied by other distinguished gentle-1 men, would pass through Lock Haven at 3 o'clock this morning, as passengers on Erie Mail. * It was expected that the Democrats would turn out in fnll force to Bee their candidates, but there was only a small crowd i at the depot this morning when Erie Mail came in. There may have been one hun-1 dred persons present all told. When the ex-Governor stepped from the car and greeted his friends as they were presented to him three cheers were proposed by some enthusiastic person, but the cheering was very faint and not at all enthusiastic.
