The attempted revival of the trailing skirt for street wear Is meeting with such resolute objection from society leaders that the fashion in this oonntry is likely to be confined to what are known as "rich and shoddy" people, and when that is understood there will be no more street trains. SSKATOU MOROIN, of Alabama ia the leading Democratic member of the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations and a man of influence in bis party and State. Like ex-Minister to England Edward J. Phelps, Morgan supports the administration and Secretary Blaine in the con-troversy with Great Britain over the Behring Sea. CmsA is trying to become a competitor in the tobacco markets of Europe. She has lately been sending samples of her products to the European markets to test their saleability. Japan has long been doing the same. As Cbnia's capibilities in this direction are virtuslly limitless, she may become a formidable competitor of the nations who now supply the European markets. Tbe Suprememe Court of ludiana, in its decision sustaining tbe eight-hour law of that State, has undoubtedly precipitated a crisis in the labor world there-aboats. The law makers of any Commonwealth may declare eight hours, six hours, or even three hours a legal day's work, but there are no law makers in Christendom who can compel any man to pay ten hours' wages for eight hours' work. Wholesale dealers in profane language are getting pulled up all around for over iodalgenoe in ;their favorite pastime. In Baltimoreoneof these swearers was pulled up for such indulgence. He was fined S3 and costs. "Make it $10"' he exclaimed to the magistrate in his anger, and the Justice at once granted the request. "Put it at $50" was his angered response. The obliging 'Squire again accommodated him. and then beiog^unable to pay the fine, he went to jail. So Pensstlvasia, to, is to have a Saturday half holiday law. There is a permissive clause in this measure for the special accommodation of banks and their customers, making it subject to adoption when a majority of the Directors so decide. This will remove tbe objection to the Saturday half holiday so strongly urged in New York. Doubtless, too, there will be more or less public discretion exercised as to its observance. Though it only applies to three months of the year, from June 15 to September 35, it certainly will .'prove a great boon to employes generally whose employers cheerfully give them the advantage of it. Of course it is not the province of tbe State to declare that six day's full wages shall be paid for five and one half days' labor. Tbe half holiday, when taken will ba at the expense of workmen. Sanitary Convention. A sanitary convention under the auspices of the State Board of Health will convene at Altoona, Friday, May 35. There will be three sessions of the convention on the \T>^h and one on the lOtb. Tbe annual conference of the Medical Inspectors of the State will also be hold during the convention. FIGHTING THE FOREST FIBES Yesterday's Eeports From Jotter Oounty Exaggerated.

A number of persons have signified their intention of taking part in a boat race on the river next Saturday it the weather is favorable. The start will be made below tbe bridge. "Eat onions," said one of our most distinguished physicians to a lady a few days since, "and yon'll never have spasms." To which the patient answered: "But, doctor, which of the two do you really think is the worst ?" There's one good feature of the masculine shirt front that heaves on the female bosom. There are no tobacco juice spot-lets on it. In School,-"What is a volcano?" A Iiot mountain." "Yes, but what does it throw out ?" "Well, dirt, stones and saliva." People borrow trouble becQuse it is easy to get and need not be paid back. A man nevf-r gets too old to hint at what a sly devil be was when a boy. Tbe absence of soft water is no excuse for drinking hard. The growing grain already waves in tbe paniDg breeze. The reports from the Potter county forest fires, which were received jester-day, contained dreadful intelligence of the loss of life and wholesale destruction of property. Much of the news was mere rumor, and there was no doubt exaggeration oonoerning the number of lives lost. Tbe following specials were received at the Williamsport Gtuette and BulUtin ofBoe last night. heavy lobs ok upe bepoktbd. AnsTiN, May 11.-Destructive forest fires have raged in this TicinitJ the past forty-eight hours. The entire lumber region is badly damaged. Goodyear Broth ers wilt be heavy losers. While fighting the fire Sunday night one work train was surrounded by flames, tbe engine and oars destroyed and seventy men narrowly escaped with their lives. Twenty-five or thirty men were seriously if not fatally burned. Oar town presents a scene of suffering. Superintendent Badger, of tbe 8. V. railroad, and three or four others ate still missing. Austin �'AcTOGiL\rH.' sup't badger's body becovered. AuSTiH, May 11.-The forest fires in this vicinity have ran their length, resulting in tbe most disastrous consequence, to life and property of any ever known. F. H. &, C. W. Goodyear will lose many million feet of logs, and many thousand cords of bark, but the worst feature of the fire is the loss of life of men fighting in tbe interior. W. H. Badger, General Superintendent of the S.V. railway, perished in tbe flames. His body was recovered late this afternoon in an almost unrecognizable condition. More Uvea are supposed to have been lost. F. H.&C.W. Goodyear will greatly expand operations this season, owing to tbe present loss, and the amount ot bark peeled by them will fairly exceed any previous years. AnsTiN "Actogbapm." details op the calamity. COL-dersport, Pa., May 11.-Tbe Associated Press furnishes the following de. tails: To-night the lumber farming towns of Austin, Costello, Galeton and Moore's Run, in Potter county, are on the verge of a panic, two especially being threatened annihilation from forest fires that seem to form an Impenetrable wall on eveiy side. For several daya the skies have been lighted np with fires apparently in every direction, but little fears were entertained by the people living in the towns, as thise threatened and in danger were farmers in tbe oonntry districts or lumtwr camps in the midst of the blazing forest. In spite of every effort, however, the flames crept steadily in toward the helpless towns until it was seen tbe people must fight back the flames or have their houses burned down over their heads. At Moore's Run, on the pretty Sinne-tnahoning road, a crowd of seventy-five willing men, sent out from Austin Sunday nigbt, had been fighting back tbe fire. They made trenches, piled up earth and lighted back fires, but were finally obliged to retreat. Tbe men hastily boarded tbe train and started to make a ran to another point when it was found they were hemmed in by tbe forest fires on one side and a huge skidway of loga on the other. It finally decided to dash past the burning skidway, and tbe engineer and fireman, with faces covered with dampened cloths and their bands and arms wrapped in wool, mounted the little engine and pulled out tbroagh the wall of fire. The men gathered in groups on the flats for protection or lay on their faces on tbe floor. As the blazing furnace of logs waa approached tbe heat became unbearable and tbe smoke so blinding and stifling the men 'ere obliged to cover their mouths with olotbs. Just opposite the millions of feet of burning logs, where the heat and smoke and flames were the greatest, a terrible thing occurred. Tbe engineer had forgotten that such great beat would surely spread the rails, and be pnlled lbs throttle wider in the hope of sooner escaping from tbe torment of beat and smoke. Then there was a lurch, an ominous heaving and a shriek of despair as tbe train toppled over into the bell of fire underneath. A scene ensued never to be forgotten by those who escaped, though every man will bear to his grave a mark of that awlul moment. Thenars caught fire and the men, half blinded and scarcely realizing anithing, except that tbe; were being slowly rosstcd to death, struggled fearfully to regain the track where safety lay, tor �time at least. Those un-jnred from tbe fall, and only smarting from the pain of intense beat, bravely turned their burned, blackened hands to aid their more unfortunate fellows. At this hoar it is impassible to secure details, though enough is known of tbe scone that followed the hurling of the struggling mass of men into the furnace of flames, to say its like bad never occurred before. Superintendent Badger, of the Sinnne mahoaing Valley road, was in charge of tbe relief train and bad worked the hard est of all to save the properties of others, When the train ditched and rolled over so suddenly be must have been injured so as to be unable to help himself, and owing to the smoke and panic he was not found until too late-jammed in the wreck he had evidently slowly horned to death. At this time, 9:30 p. m., it is known that six others also misarably perished at once or died 8aseo ac Oil City. Tbe farmer thought he acted queer and told his wife so. The young man after leaving tbe farmer's house went ap the road in the direction from which he had come. A short diatance up the road is an old abandoned oil well and a two-story house. On the first floor was a bedstead with some straw upon it. Oa Monday morning the farmer sent hia two boys aged 12 and 15 years, to the old house to see whether the man bad slept there. The boys went to the bouse and not seeing him, opened the stair door when they saw him standing as they supposed, at the top of the stairway. On Tuesday, Mr. Blair, the farmer, went to Warren, returning late in the evening. Wednesday forenoon, aboutelevcn o'clock, he wont to the old house to see if the man was still there, and on looking up tbe stairway saw him in the same position as when he was seen by the boys on Monday. Mr. Blair then went for two neigbborB who accompanied him back to the old boose and upon ascending the stairs they found the body hanging by the neok. Tbe coroner was notified and on his arrival from Warren an inquest was held and in a pocket book on the body tbe tax receipt waa found by which tbe remains were identified as those of Lewis P. Merz, of Lock Haven. Ha evidently had committsd suicide either on Sunday night or early on Monday aorning. A BAILBOAD GBOWS. do Excitlajr Chase. Constrblo Ira Hall, of Ronovo, had a lively chase this morning alter a man for whose arrest he had a warrant. The man wanted is a stranger in tbesa parts and is said to belong in Bradford county. He is charged with having taken a row boat from some point up river, and early this morning the Uenovo constable started out to look for him. Ho was foand fishing at point near Great Island, and fled from the officer. Tbe constable gave chase and followed his man over the iron bridge at the west end of the Island. When they left the bridge, the fleeing man ran through the flolds towards the railroad bridge which crosses the crook, the constable fullovring as fast as he could run but the man in the lead was the fleetest of foot and escaped. Tbo ooastsble fired five shots after his man, but the bulleta flaw wide of their mark, and no harm was done. The shooting gave rise to a report that Charles Cleary had escaped from jail, and in the upper part of the city caused considerable esoiteroent. A MoDtli ot Court. At the end of the proaeut term of court Judge Mayer will have had a full month's work presiding over courts, which commenced with the special teim in this city, April 27th. The week following the special term, the Judge bold court at Emporium. A l!Ie Ilattler Killed. O. B. Love and son, of this city, were over in the Cherry Run region yesterday and when near the old Colby place, killed r,ittlcanBke which was nearly four feet long. Tbe snake bad eleven rattles. A SmaU Wreck. Yesterday afternoon while a coal train was backing down on tbo aiding in tbe lower yard, a slight wreck occurred, and vo loaded oars were thrown from the track. Snipping Tobacco, Another largo sbipmant of leaf tobacco is being made from this city to-day. Tbe purchaser is Isaac Stirk, of Lancaster county. Father (coming in upon thera at 11:30) �"Jonuic, don't you think It's about time to go to bod?" Dangbtci-"Why yes, papa, what on earth keeps you up so Icti-?" Flowers look very out of place in a stiff, nautical hat. Remarkable Ohaiiga in tlie Atlantic City Bailioad, the Boyal Eontoto the Sea. The following article which wa quote from the Philadelphia Inquirer of,Hay Cib, is a deserved compliment to tbe present management ot the Philadelphia and Reading Railroad Company: None of tbe many acbievementa ot the present management ot the Philadelphia and Reading Railroad Company reflects more eredit than tbe rebuilding snd rehabilitation ot the Atlantic City Railroad. Previoua to the accession of the present administration that road waa a dead piece of property which resembled very much that Western Line of John I. Blair's, designated, by an expert who went ont to examine it, as consisting in its sntirety of "two streaks of rust and the right of way." To-day it Is the fluest piece of railroad connecting any city with any seashore resort. THE CHANGES EFFECTED. Formerly the road bad no terminals whatever in the city, and scarcely what could be called terminals in Atlantic City. It was a single track road, that ran np over over tbe Jersey hills and down into tbo swamps, following the surface of the earth so closely that the grades were so steep as to make the line almost imprac-tible for operation. Few people patronized it, and tbe result was that barely suf-flcleut was realized to meet tbe actual operating expenses and keep the line in condition "to hold the wheels," in tbe parlance of railroad men. Within a year all this was changed, and to-day there remains not a vestige of the old road except the right of way. Tbe elevations have been reduced and tbe hollows filled up until the grades are so light as to be inoonsequential. Permanent bridges span all tbe waterways. Two tracks of the best steel rails are laid in the best manner and ballasted so perfectly that every day trains pass ovei tbem at less than a mile a minute, but so smooth is the track that the passengers are aware ot tbe speed only by consulting their watches as mile post after mile post flies by with, tbe same rapidity that telegraph poles were passed in former days. WHAT IT PAYS. But the physical regeneration of the road is not more remarkable than the financial revolution that has taken place. Last year the company paid all the interest on tbe cost of the original road (which was practically a dead loss), all the interest on tbe cost of rebuilding and tbe acquisition of branch lines, and, besides, paid three per cent, interest on the |2,000,. OOOoft'-ie common stock In tbe treasury of the Reading Railroad Company. This year the road will pay six per cent on the stock, all of which is a clear gain to the parent company, and in effect, tbe treas. ury ia enriched by $2,000,000 in stock, worth pat or more, when two years ago it was not worth the paper it was written on. This siuab for a business aontrol of a great corporation that has bad a generation of bad luck and worse management. WHAT THE rCBLIC GETS. Not only is the Reading Railroad benefited by this change for the hotter, but tbe people of Philadelphia get the very best line to the sea that money and brains can secure. The terminals in this city are ample. In Atlantic City the main station is a magnificent structure, commodions enough for a city thrice the actual and transient population. The line np Baltic avenue to the Inlet gives travelers a chance to reach any hotel by a few moments' walk, saving the cost of transfer and also aaving time to the early travelers to this city, who are very numeroos In the summer time. There ia no seashore road out of New York or elsewhere so weli built, so Iboroughly equipped or so excellently managed as the Reading's line to Atlantic City. ATLA.NTIC CITY's oais. Another not unimportant result ot this line will be the gain to Atlantis City in its permanent population and in tbe increase of permanent improvements. The easier any seashore resort is ot access tbe more popular it will be. This fact has as much or more to do with a resort's prosperity as its alt-active features. Tbe incieased avenues of approach will enable Atlantic City not only to maintain her sapremaoy in the seaabore travel, but will unquestionably doable her popnlation in tbe next few years. Free KntextalBineat. The Yonng Ladies' Missionary Societf and Mission Baud, of tbe Baptist church, will give a free entertainment in the church Thursday evening,-May 14tb, at 7:30 o'clock. The entertainment will represent heathen women in their home costumes, imploring American women to help thom to Christian light and life. All is lifelike and very imprenaivo. Alter the entertainment, ice cream and cake will be served in tho bASoment to alt desiring, at the usual prices.

The Cue Hastily Decided Wlthoot a Oil' cnHlon^There WM no Gonfarenee, It is Alleced, and Jnd(e Haxwell Was Not Permitted to Express Bis Views-Tamed to a Sensation. . Chicago, May 11.-A special dispatch from Omaha says: A bombsbell baa been exploded in political eiioles by tbe official announuemsnt that the verdiot in tb< Boyd-Thayeroont�st osse waa tendered by tbe Supreme Court without a discnssion of tbe issues and merits ot the oaae by the Judges of the oontt. Never during tbe entire proceedings waa there a conference held in which Judge Maxwell was permitted to express his views or interabange views with bis ooUeagoes. Judge Cobb was ont of tbe State eev-eral weeks, and Norvkl, the youngest man on tbe bench is tbe ostensible aattaor of the majority opinion to which Judge Cobb appended bis name after a private consul tation in which tbe oldest Jastioe on the Snpreme Bench waa entirely ignored. Immediately after tbe opinions were filed J udge Cobb left the court room with Governor Thayer, John T. Webster and Jndge Mason. He went to tbe olerk'a office and ordered tbe writ issned withont tbe consent of bis assooiates. When Maxwell and Nerval learned that the writ ot ouster bad been snrreptitionsly issned, Jndge Maxwell indignantly characterized tbe proceeding as beneath tbe dignity ot a court. He cited tbe role of tbe ooart that the defendant bad a right to bia motion for a rehearing, and that in no event could any writ be issned inside ot forty days unless by express order of the court. Norval agrees with Maxwell that tbe proceeding on tbe part of the Chief Joatioe waa irregular and in violation of tbe rale of tbe court, yet he did not join with Maxwell for a recall ot tbe writ.

The Pardon Board consists of four mem-hers, namely, the Lieutenant Governor, tbe Attorney General, the Secretary of the Commonwealth and Secretary of Internal Affairs.

Harrity, Secretary of tbe Commonwealth, and W. U. Hensei, Attorney General, being Democrats. Section 9, Article IV, of the State Constitution, says: "No pardon shall be granted, nor sentence commnted," (by tbe Governor), "except upon the reoom-mendation in writing of tbe Lieutenant Governor, Secretary of the Commonwealth, Attorney General and Secretary of lo-ternal Affairs, or any three of them, alter full bearing upon due public notice, and in open session; and snob reoommenda-tion, with the reasons thereof at length, shall be recorded and filed in the ofllce of the Secretary ot the Commonwealth." boy.
