Let Een killed in Penobscot Bay in Cue year and that this wholesale destruction had materially reduced the Bird population of the coast. Happily these Birds Are being by Oulu under the protecting Arm of the Law and it is hooked the Slaughter will soon cease. Perhaps the most important result of the meeting is the announcement that was made that the Milliner ii of Baltimore and new \ Ork would cooperate with the Union in securing Laws for the Protection of the Birds and that the Boston milliners were heartily in sympathy with the movement. In this connection we Wou lil Call attention to the work of the Rhode Island Audubon society which issues handsome placards appealing to All fair minded women to discount Nance the destruction of Birds. One of these cards will be seen on the Walls in the Postoll ice. Swinging Igns. Str Ngor coming to bar Harbor for the first time will notice As he walks the streets in the business Section of the town one kind of ornamentation if they can be called such that he does not have at Home. Itiat is he will be struck with the variety and size of the swinging signs that extend Over the sidewalk. Nor do we think he will be particularly impressed Eitnier with their Beauty or appropriateness. If he is a Man six feet or Tiore in height he will inst Likely feel obliged to stoop a Little As he passes under some of them. But if that were All there would be no need of alluding to them. The larger part of our summer population Are Here but for a few months of the year. Since their interests Are not in the Centre of the town the disfigurement of the streets does not annoy them. The trouble is not along these lines. The great objection to swinging signs or signs that Are suspended Over the sidewalk is not their unsightly appearance. Rather it is the accidents that Are liable to come from them. To be sure there is not Tiuch apparent danger from an hanging sign. But let a stiff Breeze come up and the sign begin to squeak then one can imagine what might happen if the catches should accidentally give any and the sign drop Down upon his head. Take the wind that prevailed last wednesday for instance. Two or three signs on main Street broke Loose from their fastenings causing one Corner to drop Down so that it was necessary to remove the signs altogether. No one was struck fortunately. But suppose one of those Iron signs should come Down on a Fnu of s head would it not most Likely make an ugly round if it did not kill him outright some towns wait until an Accident occurs before taking Steps for the removal of All dangerous signs from Public thoroughfares. Is that what bar Harbor is waiting for All signs should be fastened securely to the Walls of the buildings and the Only Way to get such a plan universally adopted is to pass a Law to Itiat effect. And while you Are about it Why no give attention to the awnings. Some of these Are so Low that one cannot pass beneath them with an open umbrella without coming in contract with the Iron rods extending Over the sidewalk. It would not require much Effort on the part of the citizens ill order to live Bolli of Toliese nuisances abated. Quot an ounce of prevention is Worth a Pound of Ati ods and the reduction of the War taxes mention of which i was made in last week s record will be among the first matters to be attended to. Then there Are the army and Navy departments both calling for Large appropriations. Perhaps the greatest subject to come up for consideration will be the foreign policy. At no Lime in the history of the nation has there been greater need of a Cal for Wise and careful action in regard to foreign affairs than at present. With a philippine War on hand that shows no sign of Abate me it looms up the still More perplexing question what shall we do with China the cuban question it Viil Call for legislation and the decision of the supreme court regarding i orto Rico May Call for a reconsideration of the action already taken regarding that acquisition. Take it All in All our representatives at Washington will have an Opportunity to show their statesmanship to no Small degree and the conclusions they reach will have a world wide influence. From the county. Neighbourly a trip from our re Fular correspondent. Prospect Harbor. An old Story retold.

It is similar to one that was told of the late senator h. A. W. Tabor of Denver. It was in the Early so s soon after he had built the quot Tabor grand quot at that time the handsomest opera House in the country. Or. Tabor was a Public spirited Man and Buill Fine buildings both in Denver and Leadville while the Leadville opera House was being built or.

That was a gracious act that e. W. Kinsley Post 113 1. A k. Of Boston performed last week when it elected Gen. Joe Wheeler As an honorary member of the organisation. Gen. Blackman in pinning the insignia upon Gen. Wheeler s coat made a Short address in which he quoted the memorable words of Gen. Grant at Appomattox quot they Are our countrymen. Let there be no Salute fired to Mark our Victory and their humiliation quot but instead quot Send 20,000 rations to our fam Ishing countrymen before us now prisoi4tb of War. Let them keep their horses they will need them for Spring it is Gratifying to note that the work of protecting the gulls and terns is still being carried on and that each year records some Advance of the work in their behalf.

It waa iut Towt to of gut or terns bad tile Asse Bing of Congress at Wasli in ton next monday will not include those representatives who have recently been elected. It will be the second or quot Short quot session of the old Congress elected two years ago the Sciort session occurring on every alternate year. The new members elect cannot qualify until december Izot unless it should become necessary to Call an extraordinary session of Congress next summer. This Peculiar state of affairs can be attributed to the fact that the same method is in use today that was in use at the time of the election of the first president in this particular government a not kept up wit the time. The Telegraph and daily press have wrought such mighty changes that one would think some improvement might be made. When the first president was elected there were but two daily papers in the whole country and the Telegraph was unknown. The president elect had therefore to wait for the official news of his election. The electoral colleges do not meet until the first monday in january following the election and they Are required to Send certified lists to the presi Dent of the Senate by the first wednesday in january. As a result nearly two months passes before the president elect receives the Sofii Ocial notification and he is not inaugurated until March 4. The Congress that will meet next monday will have plenty of work to do even if it is the last of an old administration. It will have one advantage Over the previous Congress. Those who Are reelected will know they Are in for four More years while those whose term has expired will have nothing to deter them from doing their Best. There need be no quot political quot reasons to prevent their working and voting for the measures that will be for the Good of the country As a whole. Business can be taken up just where it was left on adjournment while a new Congress would have to begin All Over again. There Are Many important matters to be dealt with. The Nicaragua canal Bill with itai40/ of too of a Propri the cuban constitutional convention at the opening of its session expressed itself As being pleased with the manner in which Gen. Wood had conducted affairs in the Island and furthermore stated that it was satisfied that the United states in tended to fulfil the declaration made in favor of Independence of Cuba. And this is the course that Many americans think ought to be pursued. But As there Are always two sides to every Cju estion this one should receive due attention. To Many it May seem of Little consequence to the United states whether the Independence of Cuba is granted or not. To the business men of Cuba it is of vital importance. Cuba s Independence would mean that she it uld take her chances with the other nations of the world. She would have to seek out markets for her products. Her nearness to the United states would seem to imply that this country was the logical Market for her goods. Now our Hii a Tariff on sugar tobacco and other Wourl work havoc to All Liei industries unless a Narket can be found for her products she would suffer beyond Relief. Tie business men of Cuba recognize this and when the time come for decision it May not be surprising in they ask not Independence but annexation. Congress we think will go slow in Deahn with this matter. In i >65 Freedom was granted to the slave in the United Stales and in 1868 the ballot Box was placed in his hands the Possession of which was reinforced in 1870 by the ii amendment to the Constitution. The last few years has brought up the question whether or not it was a mistake to give the slave the right to Vole before he was prepared to exercise that right in some of the Sou i Ciu sidles Lylial Light has virtually been taken away. In giving Cuba Independence in May be necessary for us to provide her with a Market for her goods. Have we that Market in mind or Are we to act on the impulse of the moment Grant her Independence and let the future take care of itself. Contributed. A. R.
