FARMERS HELPED BY LEGISLATION There were tremendous cheers given at a banquet of Canadian free traders Thursday night when dispatches were road announcing Democratic success at the recent eleotion. How does this sort of thing strike patriotic American voters. The Department of Agriculture estimates that the wheat crop of the present year is 401,118,000 bnsaels, which ia about 80,000,000 leas than that of last year. In 1389 the yield the country over averaged about thirteen bushels to the acre; this year it is a little over eleven bushels. So many accidauts have resulted from the racing between the steamships City of New York of the In nun line and Teutonic of the White Stir line that the officials of the two companies at Liverpool recently decided that after January 1 next tbe vessels of tbe two linos will run alternately, one each week. OtJR free trade friends who are talking so glibly of repealing the MoKiuley Tariff are rookoning without their host. The MoKinley Tariff will remain so long as the United Stites Senate ie Republicau, and at preseut there is no prospect that the Senate will be anything else but Republican for several years. The German Government will be asked to establish a bauteriologitul institute to enable Professor Koch of the Berlin University to tgst and prove his mothod for tbe cure of consumption by inoculation with attenuated tubercular bacilli. His discovery, if the test prove it infallible, will be one of the greatest in medical science. _ lteuis From Up Hirer. From the Renovo News. Ho?:.

It was 10,000 when half the.State had been heard from and over M.000 when a little less than two-thirds of the precinotB had reported. It looks as if it might bo 18,000 or 20,000 when all the figures are In. President Harrison's plurality W38 7,087.

Wasiitkoton, Nov. 9.-The Secretary of Agriculture has presented his annual report to the President. He expresses a distinctly hopeful view of agricultural affairs, indicating obvious benefits to farm ers of certain legislation w hioh he specifies, By comparing prices at Chicago for Octo. her, 1800, and 18S9, ho shows a marked increase in the value of agricultural products, especially of cereals. A tabular statement of the agricultural imports of the last fiscal year, including live animal barley, hay, potatoes, hops, cheese, eggs, flax, wool, tobacco, wines, etc., the old and new tariff's rates being given for each incieates a material increase in the import duties on these articles, and shows each to have been imported iu considerable quantities. The Secretary asserts that without ig. noring the effects of natural causes enhancing values it is evident that the eoonomio legislation of tbe last session of Congress has directly benefitted the farmers, the improved value of cereals, as he believes, being largeiy due to the silver legislation, which moreover has leaseuod the influence of Russia and India, our wheat competitors in tbe British markets. Our Increased export trade in cattle and animal products is anothor cause of congratulation. He traces it to the energetic and effective measures adopted for the eradication of pleuro pneumonia, aud to tbe growing appreciation, at home aud abroad of the departments ability to suppress or effectually control oont igious animal diseases. Tbo outlook for the home sugar industry is considered favorable. A good article of sugar is shown to have been produced profitably from sorghum, varieties of which, with largo sugar contents, have been developed through tbo efforts of the Department of Agriculture. The analysis by tbe Department chemist of beets grown in various states from Beeds distributed last spring, indicate a high per ceut. of sugar and afford what is regarded as conclusive proof that large sections of the country are adapted to the successful culture of sugar beets. Practical results obtained in Nebraska aud K*nsa s, he says, demonstrates the feasibility of home grown sugar manufacture. Tbe Secretary predicts that in the near future half of our sugar will be thus supplied. AaarchUt Celebration In Chicago.

By reference to the report of the proceedings of Council ia another column of this issue of tbe ExritEsa, it will bo soen that the Look Haven eleotrio light and power company have asked Council to grant them the privilege of erecting poles and wires in this city. Mr. A. C. Robertson, of the firm of A. C. Robertson & Co is tho gentleman who with the assistance of Electrician J. E. Kelley, of this city, baa organizsd the new company in Look Haven. Tbe eapftal is $20,000, moat of whioh ii already subscribed, and Mr, Robertson is assured that the balance can easily be raised. Tho location of the plant has not been decided upon, but the oompaoy has two sites in view, one of whioh will likely be selooted. A portion of the city has been canvassed and she encouragement extended suoh that tho work of putting in the plant will be pushed as rapidly as possible. As soon as C>mnoil grants permission to erect and maintain tho poles aud wires, tho com pauy will be permanently organized, a ohaiter applied for, and the actual work of preparation for furnishing light commenced. Tbe preliminary steps have been taken and as council men reoognize the necessity of keeping ahead of tho times, fchero is little doubt but the incandescent system of electric lighting will Boon be in operation and Look Haven will have taken another step forward in its steady march of progress and improvement. It is a fact well known that when capitalists are looking about for a location for an industrial plant one of tho first questions asked is "has Lock Haven the incandescent system of elootric lighting." If a fair degree of QQOOuragomeut -js given to the new company this question need not be answered negatively for a much longer period. Give us more light. PI/NGKNT POT POCKBI. Tbe Memorial Home.
