THE EX-LE ADEE HOOTED BY THE MOB Vice President Pbootob, of the Singer Sewing Machine Company, is reported to be worth 135,000,000. He shared the inventor's poverty with bim, and afterwards married bis daughter. Singer's original capital was $50, which grew to be $30,000, 000. CoMMissiosEB Raum flnds that up to December 6 there have been but S2T,000 olatma for pensiona filed under the new law. Thia is a much smaller number than has been generally supposed, and indicates that the expenditurea under that law will be leas than baa been anticipated. Though Parnell controls the Irish campaign fund, his opponents most be well supplied with money, since we are told that the entire McCarthy manifesto, containing 3,500 words, was cabled to ihe delegation in Now York, who discussed and approved it, and then returned one still longer. Three cables were placed at their disposal, and they kept them busy. Every cloud is said to have a silver liDing, bat Done seems to have quite as much value in it as the great smoke cloud which continually overhangs the city of London. EuglisU scientists have estimated that it weighs fully three hundred tons and contains enough carbon and carbonic acid gas to make its yearly value ten millions of dollars. But the aggravating part of it all is science has been able to devise no method by which this vast carbon cloud can be captured and made to surrender its wealth. The Philadelphia Record is the first of all the great daily papers to issue its almanac for 1891. The present number is a book of about one hundred pages, every one Sited with tables and statiitics of value to the average business nan. It also gives a history of the tariff legislation of the present year and prints the new and old tariff bills in fall. It also gives a history of census taking in this ooantry and �applies valuable tables in relation thereto. In addition to all this it has tbe ens. tomary information relative to the State and National Governments, the whole farming a manual of great usofulness and Taloe. Bbsator Wade Hampton did his best to be re-elected to to the Uoiled States Senate from South Carolina, but on Thursday on the third ballot he was defeated by the Speaker of the House, the vote standing, Iiby lOo, Donaldson 10, and Hampton 42. This is a terrible blow for Hampton. U was not so very long ago that be was the idol of bis parly in South Carolina. Until quite recently it was jjeo-erally taken for granted that he would be retaroed to the Senata practically without oppoaition. But a new force has made its apppearance in South Carolina polities, and the result is that the star of Hampton goes down. This new force is the Farmers' Alliance, which placed Captain Tillman in the field for Governor last spring and, in spite of all the Democratic machine backed by the most powerful party organs in the State could do, succeeded in electing bim. An Barly Eprlnic PredlcUd. Chester oonnty's eminent weather prophf t, J. Williams Thoroo, has written bi* usual weather predictions for the winter, aooording to bis "Lunar Cycle Rule," and the Village Record has printed it. The interesting portion of the predictions la OODtained in the following: "The winter of 1890-91 will be a mod-erataone, with about three weeks of good �lelgbing. Ice will be sufBciently abundant to furnish a full supply in eastern Fennaylvania and New Jersey. The navi gation of tbe Delaware, at Philadelphia, will be obstructed with ice, but temporarily, if at all. lo Chesttr county the thermometer will but rarely indicate a temperature at or below zero, Tbe spring will be of more than average earlinefs. The Slimmer following will be sufficiently warm and moist to make good crops of gnia and bay generally. Apples, pears, p�(obM and cberiits will be more than ulultj kbaodaot." Priest!

Dublin, Deo. 14 -At Westport, County Mayo, to-day, Parnell and his followers were denounced from the altar. In many other Catholic churches similar denunoia-tioDs were uttered. Tbe National League branches in South and East Down, have voted against the Paruellites at Middle-ton. At Cork the Local League branch voted 44 lo 26 to support Parnell. A circular by the Bishop of Cloyne, rcid in tbe churches to-day. says; In coDScqueuce of the deplorable stale things produced by Parnell's unprincipled and uojatriotio action, it is of the utmost importance to reorganize the league branches of this diocoso. The leaders ought to assemble the members and explaio the necessity of withdrawing from the control of the Central League at Dublin. sticks and stones used. Parnell addressed a meeting today at Tulljrooeand Freshfail. There was much disorder. At the latter a fight was pro-vented by the police. The aoti-Parnell faction held a meeting at Tipperary. About fifty Parnellltes started cheeriug for their leader. The priests tried hard to pacify the opposing crowds, but in spite of their efforts stones were thrown and sticks used freely, and a serious ooullict was averted only by the fiual withdrawal of the Parnellites. iiealy'a severe laxguaoe. Messrs. Healy, Ksuny, Tanner and Daviit today addressed meeliogs in support of Hennessy. Scaly declared that if Parnell were allowed to retain the leadership ho would stump Ireland with a banner made of Mrs. O'Shoa's petticoats. Parnell, he said, put O'Shea in Parliament, the price being paid tbe honor of O'Shea's wife, parnell accu3ed. In a speech at Kilkenny Healy accused Parnell of prostituting the fund for evicted tenants to employ hireling boys to break his opponeui's skulls. Parnell was showing wonderful zaal and activity now, but where had he been the last five yeark? [A voice-"with Kitty."] [Laugh ler.l A riou silver strike.

The manager sends word that at 350 leet in the tunnel they uncovered a six fooc vein of silver orf, and that tbe assays gave uot less tliau J600 to the ton. This mine is acros-s tbe Platte river from Brush Creek, whi^re the gold iiuds have been made, and the reports apparently be.ir out the theory that the mountains of Southern Carbon couuly are rich in minerals, as the range contiuiies inlo Colorado. IN CONGRESS. What wki Tafca riuce la Itotli Honitos TUIh Week. Washikoton, Deo. 14 -Juat whjt wil I take place in the Senate this week is largely dependent upon tbe Ropublioao caucus which it is expected, will meet t'j-niorrow or Tuesday. To-morrow will be the twelfth day of the poudoncy of the elec-tion bill, and the probabilities are that, unless the caucus decides to take sumo dc-oidcd step toward tbe speedy terminutiou of the debate, the pressure for fioaucial legislation will become loo great to he resisted. In this case the dissatisfaction felt by some Republican Souator.i may find expression in an effort, made before the week expires, to lay aside the election bill io favor of some measure ujw on the calendar which will admit of aice.dmjnt in the direction of increased U3e of silver as a basis for note circulation if not of free coinage. The irapressiou is that in any e�ont tills week will witness a depari-uie Irom the order which has governed the proceedings of the Senate since it reassembled on the first of December. There io a large number of important measures pressing upon the attention of tbe house for consideratiun this week. Monday is individual auspensiou day, and will bo taken up with measures to which little opposilion is anticipated. Mr. Dtinnell, (Minn.,) has given notice of his intention lo call up Ihe rcapportioumcnt bill Tuesday, as there is no concerted opposition to tbe bill CD the part of tbe dum-ersts. Tke bitter fight over the apportionment, which at the beginning uf the session was generally predicted, will not come off. Mr. Cuteheu purposes to call np the army appropriations bill tbe first opportunity and tbe District of Columbia bill should also be ready for consideration daring the latter part of the week. The friends of tbe shipping bill have biwn assured of the friendly dispasiiion on tbe part of the rules committee toward their measure, and it is possible the reapportionment bill may be disposed of quickly enough to permit the shipping bill to come up this week. The Dorsey bill to reduce compnlsory deposit of bonds by the national banks and to authorize the issue of the circulating notes to a par value of the bonds held by tbe United States government for those banks will be urged by tte banking committee for an immediate con sideration. The commerce committee also have a request on file for a special day. To The Cliarltable. We know that there were charitable people in Look Havoo last year, and for many years before, because when we asked them to assistus in relieving the poor and destitute, they came to our assistance. We believe that many of these people are still here, and when we toll them, that in our investigations we have found much destitution and want, such as can be relieved bytheirgivingwhatthey have iu their own home, and do not use, they will respond with the promptness and generosity they have hereiolore exorcised. Wo can use'to good advantage any clothing, hats, caps and shoes that you may choose to send.

The following complimentary notice is clipped from the Baltimore American: "A company of first-class artists made their appearance at the theatre last night, before an audience as large as It was appreciative. 'Old Jonathan Coburg,' a comedy-drama in three acts, was acceptably presouted, with William Moore and Miss Bella Vivian in the leading characters. Both of these artists are well known in this city, having appeared here a number of limes belore iu biirletque and extrava-g.iuzaa.
