The American who grumbles at the proposed increase in the pension of gal lanl General Custar'a widow to $2,000 per year is a mighty poor sort of Americikn. The qaeation of subaidiea for A.inerioan ahlpfioK hai at last been brought before the House. The next step should be the pansage of Bach a bill as will give Ameri-oaa �b)pp)D^ eoflouragemBDt equal to that whiob now makei England "tha mistress of the aeaa." IiABT Friday the Lebanon Kewi issued a ten page Industrial edition that shows that attraoti�� city to ba a busy hive of varied industries. The i'tws is desbrving of mueh credit for the part it baa taken to bring about tbia desirable atate of affairs, and it* latest effort oannot tail to prove beeeSoial._ ' The big macaroni faotory which rumor orediuted for Minneapolis just after the HoKlnley bill beeame a law is now assured. The oontraot for the building has bean given out. This is said to be the firat macaroni factory in the United States, and is the first fruits of the removal of macaroni from the free list to the dutiable list.        _ FnoM a oomoiunioatioD sent by the Secretary of the Treasury to the Senate, it seems half a dozea States and several oitica still bava olaims pending acainst the General Goveramant on account of mouies adranced and ezpeuditarea incnrred by them during the War of 1813. Amongst these oredjiors we find our own Srate figuring to the extent of t3C8,4ll. The severity with which soldiers in the Vmitci 8Ute� Armj were treated for a nnmber of years, and to wbieb the greet number of desertions was due, has been materially lessoned under Secretary Proctor's mansKementof tbo War Department. The Secretary having done all that was reasonable to render array life comfortable, and having enabled soldiers, under oertaio restrictions, to rise from the ranks or secure honorable discharge, now proposes that the soldiers themselves shall live up to their enlistment cootracts. While all eyes are directed to the Northwest, where the issues of war or peace hang suspeDdod In the balance, it is well to ponder on the words just uttered by one of the commanding officers now at the eoeoe of (be distorbsDoe. He say� "every pcssible means have been exhausted to re-etrain the friendly Indians now on the reservationB. The ID,COO Sioux who have been restrained and professed loyalty should have positive assurances, witb the least possible delay, that the Government Kill perform and fvlfiU its treaty oUiria-Hon:" The insinuation contained in the foregoing is that the OovernmeLt has not complied with the terms of ita treaties witb the Indians._ A Plctnr* of BIr,. 0'Sh�a. From the New Vort World. What is Mrs. O'abea like? What Banner of woman la this "modern Helen?" Are her claims so overpowering that even the aasual observer is impressed? Inasmuch as no adeqeate portrait of Mrs. O'Bhea has been published in this country, at least sioce her name became a part of history and her beauty a mountain ja the path of liberty, the following description of her from the lips of a famous traveller �will satisfy some cnriusities: "She is not a brilliant woman intellectually, any moie than was Delilah or Helen of Troy. Cleopatra was, but there has never been but one Cleopatra. Mrs. O'Sbea is a sort of an Amazon; she has the thick lips and bulging brow we see in the Cleopatra medals, and is as cold-blooded ordinarily SB Cleopatra was known to be, while she is not a very tall or big boned woman, she Is ruddy and full blooded; her hair is blond and profuse, and her oomplexiou Is fair. Her brother, General BIr Evelyn Wood, is the soul of honor, and the mystery of the sister's conduct is apparently inexpliaable. TrjiDC to BWDra an Industry. The business men of Williamsport are engaged just now In the effort to raise one hundred and fifty thousand dollars for the purpose of securing an industry whieh it is claimed will give employment to not less than fifteen bnudred men.

SrnisoFiELD, Mass , Deo. 23.-Ao elaborately planed canvass to ascertain the opinions of farmera throughout the oonn-try on certain practical economy and political questions, has been conducted on an extensive scale for the past three months by the agricultural press of tspringfleld. Liberal responses were interchanged and caused mnoh discussion by farmers' organizations everywhere, and induced a large poll of postal card ballots. The answers have been fully tabulated only aa far they relate to the last qnestiun: "Who should be the Republican and Damooratio nominees for the Presidency in 1S02 ? " But enough has been done to show that federal aid to agricultural education and the teaching of agricultural scioooe in the rural public schools are overwhelmingly endorsed. The sentiment regarding the government owoerabipof railroada is quite evenly divided. A great many who vote against such ownership insist ou government superviBlon, and fnll control of the railroads. Tbo views expressed as to the new tariff law, reclprooity and the proposed modifi catiou of the National Land policy arc so diverse that it will be some days before they are classified. THE CHOICE  FOB rilESIDESI. In referenee to the vote on presidential candidates it is explained that the journals Interested interpreted the November elections as sacaning that the farmera were weary of old favorites and old measures and demanded now men and new issues. These journals therefore advocated J. M. Rusk, of Wisconsin, Beoretary of Agriculture, and Congressman William H. Hatch, of Sllssouri, ex-chairman of the House Committee ou Agriculture, as proper Republican and Democratic standard bearers for 1893. In spite of this in-fiuecco, however, the farmera expresied their preference tor ptesideatial candidal >� in the following manner: FOR RErUBLICAN CAItDIOATEB. TTun-i- tiratUT- lilahji'.       lull.

Wabhisotos, Deo. 22.-Kavy Department ofiiclals are discussing with great avidity the designs of tbe battle ram prer seated at the bidding Saturday. The ship' is to be conatrnoted after plans drawn by Bear Admiral Ammcn. It la expected ts develop about seventeen knots speed, and at this rate her huge prow, it is thought, will bo able to pierce and sink the greatest armored ^oroisers and line of battle ships known to modern times. The shape of tbe vessel is to be turtle backed. No part of her bull is to stand more than six feet out of water. The exposed surface is so rounded that the heaviest shot from the enemy, it is anticipated, will glance off like marbles. The ram is to be of wrought steel, and it will give the vessel the ap^ pearance of a huge cigar. The Bath iron worka of Bath, Maine, offer to constrnot the ship for.gOSO.OOO ac-eurdiiig to the proposed plan, except the provision that the ram shall be rejected if she fails to make seventeen knots an hour. It is believed that the department will reject tbe bid, or rather teadvertlse or build the vessel at the Navy yard. Farners* Tnstltnte.

' A number of eitians of Woodward township were in the eity to-day in a very indignant frame of mind over the fact tbat a channel was cut in the lee on the river last night from the bead of tbe obuta to a point oppositg Vesper atreet. Tbe oban-nel is wide enough to eompletety obstruct tbe passage of both pedeatrlana and tsama across the river on the ice.
