IN THE BEAUTIFUL WYOMING "Jolm of Lancaster1' Visits tlic Bustling City of Wilkesbarre. Heiie we go, importing industries, al though the McKinley bill m Reneral has not yot gone into effect, and although the tin plate duty in particular does not take effect till next July. A $7,000,000 com pany has already been formed to build i tin plate mill at Baltimore, and a $1,500,-000 tin plate company at Duquesne, near Pittsburg. It is officially announcud that the Can adian Government intends to subsidize fast steamship lines on both the Atlantic and the Paoiflc, "thus giving the Canadian people facilities for transporting their pro-dues and manufactures in a rapid manner to the populous regions of China, Japan and Australia, and to the great markets of Europe," Meanwhile the United States will wait and watch the result of the experiment. Whenever the British newspapers are not saying nowadays that tho McKinley bill is specially designed to hurt British interests they say instead that tho American famine relief fund is designed to oatcli the Irish vote. The disposition to imputo unworthy and petty motives is the sign of an awfully small and ill uatured disposition. Certainly such sneers should not prevent any American from contributing liberally for the relief of the hunger stricken districts of Ireland, and just as soon as possible._- - New York Press: .Democratic newspapers are publishing a table of average tariff percentage, varying from 15. GO per oent. from 1858 to 1862 to about GO per cent, for the now McKinley tariff. It is easy to show a great big increase like this in tariff percentages when lots of things that used to be dutiable are on the free list now and don't count at all, and lots of other things have become so much cheaper that tho same duty that used to be 15 per cent, of their price may be 60 per oent. of it now. The higher a duty the greater the inducement to production any how, and the lower the price. The McKinley percentages may average a good deal more tnan 60 when the new bill begins to stimulate production and reduoe prices. How It Is Done Down East. Boston Transcript-First City Father-"Mere's a fine looking street." Second City Father-"You're right there. What's best to be done to it?" "Let's have it dug up for a sewer." "But wouldn't it be proper to pave it first?" "'Of course, I supposed you understood that. Then, after it is paved and a sewer put in we'll have it repaved." "All in readiness to be dag up again for the gas pipe? I see you understand tthe principles of municipal economy. And after we havo had it repaved a second time, theu what?" "Well, then, it will be in order for widening. There's nothing I admire bo much as system in the care and improvement of our roadways." Burning Property Near Kideway. UiDGEWAY, Oct. 6.-The large Baw mill at Shorts Mills, owned by the Empire Lumber Company, was entirely consumed by fire last night about 11 o'clock. The mill had not been in operation for three weeks, and the fire is no doubt the result of spite work. Loss on the mill and machinery about $15,000, with no insurance. A small quantity of lumber was also destroyed and an unoccupied dwelling, about a quarter of a mile from the mil], was also burnt down about 8 o'clock the same evening. A clue has been obtained and the guilty party will no doubt be apprehended.

The average value, of first payments on these original claims for 1890 was $485.71. The average annual value of each pension at the olose of fiscal year wa�tl33.94. At the close of the fiscal year there remained in the hands of pension agents the sum of 4580,283.87 of the pension fund, whioh had not been disbursed for the want of time, which was returned to tbe treasury, and there were 20,638 pensioners unpaid at the olose of the fiscal year who were entitled to receive (4,357,437.50, whioh has slooe been paid from the appropriation for pensions for tbe flsoal year 1891.

The* appreciation of the large audience was repeatedly demonstrated. Tbe scenes of The Sinking Ship," tbe "Kaft," and the Lunatio Asylum" were greeted with notable enthusiasm. The mechanioal effects are remarkable and amply justified the deepest interest of tho audience. Since the last presentation of ''The World" in this city the play has been pleasingly elaborated by the addition of new scenery, costumes, etc., and is now ranked as the most interesting and effeotive of all Amerioan dramas. Mr. J. Z. Little, as the hero, is supported by an excellent and efficient eompany. Interest in the play increases with the enactment of each scene. The drama will undoubtedly score a marked and well deserved success during tho entire week.-Baltimore Sun, Sept. 10, 1890, This groat attraotion will appear at our Opora House -to-morrow evening.
