Demo rats carry Ken Turkey and Utah Blaine and Republican Lloyd in Kentucky Peoples party platform in Ohio. Washington aug. 4.�?it is Learned from a very reliable source that the Alliance members of Congress from Georgia have expressed their intention of refusing to support judge Crisp for the speaker ship unless he formally and unequivocally declares his adherence to Tho Alliance platform. A general sympathy with Alliance measures will not be sufficient for them they will insist that judge Crisp come out squarely in favor of the Ocala platform sub Treasury scheme and All. It has generally been understood that Crisp is not a believer in Tho Peculiar a reforms championed by senator Peffer Jerry Simpson and the rest of the heterogeneous gathering which go to make up the Alliance and that be has sufficient courage to express his sentiments plainly. It begins to look As if the third party members were determined to Cut a considerable Figuro in the next House and that they will attempt to make their Power Felt is almost a foregone conclusion. From the same source from whence comes this news about judge Crisp the information is Learned that the Alliance men will in All probability oppose the caucus nominees of both parties and see if they Are not Strong enough to Force their own Man of tile House As speaker a contingency Winch would Lead to an extremely interesting state of things. _. What strength the Alliance will have in Tho next House is still an unknown Quantity. Several members who Wero _ elected As democrats Are suspected As having Alliance loadings and if the statements of the leaders Are to he relied on the movement is growing All the time and is stronger today in the South than it was last november when these men were elected members of the 52d Congress. Tile Triumph of the Alliance in Kentucky in being Able to elect the legislature causes some apprehension Here and will certainly have the tendency to make the third party men feel More confident than Ever in the ultimate Success of the movement. If the Alliance men can to elect their own speaker. And it is scarcely possible that they can do is believed that they will vote for some Man who is supposed to be closely in sympathy with them. Some of them say they would just As soon take a Republican As a Democrat. All they want is a speaker whose leanings Are their Way. _ party of the people. Ohio third party men nominate a candidate for governor. At the state convention of the Peoples party in Springfield of.

Democrats carry Utah. First election held on strictly National party lines. Ogden. A. Aug. 4.�?the first election in Utah on National party lines came off yesterday. There were three tickets in the Field the remnant of the Liberal party and made up mostly of republicans nominating a full ticket. The mormon vote was about equally divided Between the democrats and republicans. The former won by a Small plurality Over the liberals who were slightly ahead of tile republicans. The town is wild with excitement Over the first Victory in Utah of american politics Over Church and anti Church parties. Harry Lloyd in Kentucky. He tells his missionary experience for the Peoples party. Among the Host of speakers that the Peoples party sent into Kentucky to sneak for the new doctrines was or. Hairy Lloyd of this City. He has had a Lively time and says he was denounced throughout the state As a a Bald headed both the old parties fought against him. Quot when i went to Lexington says or. Lloyd both parties tried to prevent me having the use of the court House but i succeeded in getting it just one hour before tile advertised time for the meeting. Quot it is a habit in Kentucky to ring up an audience with a Boll and i had the court House Bell rung by the janitor As if there was a fire. When to Lell Back tired out i hired a Young fellow to ring the hour out. You should have seen How the crowd turned Tutol their Bouses. Ire soon had the court House filled and a May of people on the outside fully 4000 in All. A Gen. Watt Harding attorney general of the state was there and i offered to Divide the time with him for a joint debate hut he refused. So i went ahead alone and got plenty of applause. A but congressman Breckinridge the most eloquent speaker of Kentucky was on the stump night and Day denouncing our new party As anarchists at heart and in common with other speakers calling upon the people to vote with the republicans if they were not willing to vote the straight democratic ticket. A i spoke at Lexington Covington Paducah Paris and other cities but outside Lexington i had the largest audiences in the country districts. The Farmers heard me willingly but in the cities i began to be afraid for my life. I am no intending mar Tyr Aud if i had known what risk i was going to run in the Kentucky towns i should have stayed outside. A i did not find any Lack of intelligence in the agricultural districts hut there is. No doubt a dead weight of illiteracy. In four counties round Lexington there was not one schoolhouse As i was informed by Dennis of Reilly an old time Democrat and a Man of property in Lexington. Quot besides myself there were actively speaking in the state for the Peoples party Robert Schelling of Milwaukee. Wig. M. W. Wilkins a Kansas Man and ii. Taubeneck of Marshall 111., the one Alliance Man who held out and refused to vote for Palmer As senator. There were other speakers from the state itself and we made considerable stir. But the organization was very poor and w. Irwin Tho Peoples party nominee for governor was a bad selection broadsides were fired at him on the ground of personal character. With no sufficient answer. A if Pollock Barbour of Louisville had been put up our party would have easily polled 16,000 More votes than it did in the state. But or Barbour is an old Man and not equal to the Strain of a Campaign. He was moreover dissatisfied with the method of calling the party convention. So the Campaign has been demoralized. A i did expect that we might get 40.000 votes when i first went to the state but when i saw the poor Ness of the organization and realized the shortness of time for campaigning and other drawbacks. I thought and still think that 20,000 will be a High showing under the circumstances. Quot in Ohio our prospects Are much better and we shall draw heavily from the farming districts taking most from the republicans. Hamilton county ought to give us 16,000, and i look for a vote of 120.000 in the state at Large. Quot there we have two candidates for Tho nomination for governor. Hon. John Seitz the brother in Law of Foraker and Cash j. C. H. Cobb. Either of them will make a Good run. For lieutenant governor there Are several candidates but Only two Are really in the race. These Are Frank s. Rest and w. H. Stevenson. I should regard Ristus nomination As a weak one for he m an old Knight of labor who is now fighting his own order. He leads at present however and i no afraid he May get the nomination. For the Sake cd party Unity Stevenson would be a much better Man. Of Hist is on the ticket the knights of labor in Ohio Are not Likely to rally behind democracy on of Farmers will constitute Moro than half the legislature. Louisville. Ky., aug. 4.�?there was considerable interest in the election yesterday for the politicians who Are seeking for some gauge by which the strength of the new people s party May be measured. Kentucky was the first state in which the new party has been Given an Opportunity to show its strength at the ballot Box. The result is disappointing to the leaders who expected 40,000 votes for their state ticket. The Alliance men Tado their strongest efforts to secure members of the legislature. They have elected hut 15 out and out Alliance men. But in democratic Farmers constituencies they have brought about this change that a Farmer Democrat was insisted upon instead of electing As formerly a lawyer Democrat. Thus Tim incoming legislature will to overwhelmingly democratic and at the same time will have 54 Farmers or More than half the whole number of members. In other words the legislative Branch is controlled by what is called Here Quot the Rural on joint ballots the legislature will stand about As follows Alliance 15 former democrats. 58 straight democrats. So. The most important question at Issue and the one that attracted the most attention was the adoption or rejection of the new Constitution. The new Constitution suppresses lotteries equalizes taxation provides for the australian secret ballot and introduces reforms in Tho government of cities. Ninety live out of no counties in the state give John Young Brown the democratic nominee for governor a net plurality of 27,707, which would indicate a plurality for the whole it aloof about 25,000. The vote for the Constitution was Large and resulted in a majority of at least 90,000 for the new instrument. Blaine the Choice. Convention of Republican clubs enthusiastic for him. Syracuse n. Y., aug. 5.�?the fourth annual convention of the state league of Republican clubs began a two Days session at Tho grand opera House in this City today. At 10.30 a. In. The executive committee was called to order at the Globe almost every county in the state being represented and the utmost Good feeling prevailed. After a Brief session adjournment was taken to the grand opera House the lower floor of which was filled with delegates and alternates while the balconies and galleries were crowded with spectators. When president e. A. Mcalpin entered at 11.80 there was prolonged applause followed by cries of Quot Blaine Blaine a and Quot Harrison Harrison a amid enthusiasm and cheering. At 11.40 president Mcalpin called the convention to order and the divine Blessing was invoked by Rev. J. H. Bachman of Syracuse. President Mcalpin a address was frequently interrupted by applause. The Secretary then called the name of each club the chairman of Tho delegation responding. When the name of James g. Blaine association of new York was reached there was an outburst of vociferous cheering delegates rising in their seats and waving hats canes and lags. In All 200 clubs answered the Call. Committees on resolutions credentials and league work were then appointed. Letters of regret were read from Secretary of the Treasury Charles Foster Secretary of the Navy Tracy senator Evarts Hon. Warner Miller Thomas c. Platt and others. Where red men Rule. Politics which affected elections in Indian territory. Tahlequah i. To a aug. 4.�?yesterday was general election Day in the Cherokee nation and this much improved order of red men habitually make the most of it. It is a great nation for politicians. There Are a vast number of offices to be filled Aud the main differences Between the two has been that one is in office and the other Isnit. Nothing definite has yet been obtained As to the result. The candidates voted for were principal chief second chief judges county officers and members of both branches of Tho legislature. It is believed that j. B. Mayes the Downing party a nominee has carried the nation by a Small majority. C. W. Bushyhead who ran on the Liberal or allotment and settlement and j. D. Banga nominee of the National party were the opposing candidates. There Wero several important issues in the election which Only a knowledge of Tahlequah politics can make Plain. The National party represents in general the full blood cherokees and it is Clear enough that when questions involving citizenship Are Rife and therewith the right of sharing the ownership and proceeds of tribal lands held in common there is a very practical basis for this National party. But Tho Downing party is More progressive and of late has been running the government. Two years later in 1889, that party repeated its Victory with much greater ease thanks to having control of the offices and perhaps also to the fact that Mayes did secure a much higher offer for Tho lease of the outlet Asho had predicted. The ticket headed by Mayes and Smith was completely successful Over that of Bushyhead and Bunch and the Downing party also elected a working majority in the legislature. But new issues were coining up. The Washington government desired to open the Cherokee strip to settlement and Congress authorized Tho offer of $1,25 per acre Tor the entire tract containing 6,024,239 acres. Chief Mayes thought he could do better by leasing it to the Cattie Syndicate. The government checkmate this move by ordering the cattlemen away from Tho strip which of course seriously interfered with the project of deriving rent from it. Home of the cherokees became alarmed and thought that Mayes had overreached himself. The government commissioners had resented in their report tile reception they met and there was some Plain talk in Congress of seizing Tho tract and appraising it As when other lands Are occupied for Public uses under the right of eminent Domain. The recent canvass started betimes. The nominations were made As Long ago As last september. So As to be sure to give Tho nation a full years enjoyment of politics. Mayes was nominated for a third term by the Downing or progressive party but Iii the convention of the nationalists Bushyhead was beaten by George w. Benge and thereupon bolted Tho ticket. The result has been a triangular canvass Between Mayes the Downing candidate Benge the National and Bushyhead leading what has been called the Liberal or Peoples party. The nine districts into which the Cherokee country is divided have been stumped by the three candidates the principal issues discussed being the disposition of the Cherokee outlet and compliance with the governments wish to take lands in severally Aud become fully american citizens to will therefore be seen that the election we As probably the most important in Cherokee history. The growth of willingness to meet Tho government on a fair footing in the Sale of the Cherokee outlet is also a Good sign. The results of this election May have an influence on the politics of the remainder of the civilized tribes. Men who help nominate presidents. New York aug. 8.�?next tuesday the executive committee of the National association of democratic clubs will meet at the Hoffman House. It will bring together some of the leading lights in the democratic party and incidentally several Indiana democratic politicians who Are now in the City holding conferences Wither Secretary of till Navy Whitney col.

There is a decided trend toward sex con Gressman Crapo among Massachusetts Republican politicians. Up in Worcester county there is still a feeling that cd congressman Allen May be Tho Man but the feeling is not Strong. But it is very Clear that at the present moment or. Allen is not the nominee.

Bid for votes. Cabinet position to him who can meet the terms. Washington aug. 9.�?�?oany Illinois statesman competent of bringing a Harrison delegation to the 1892 convention can get a seat in the Cabinet a said a member of the into congressional committee. Quot or. Harrison has offered the Job to several persons already who have declined the undertaking. Quot first it was offered to Joe Cannon who said in language More forcible than polite that the Job was impossible. Ton the polite and diplomatic Hitt was solicited and he being a genuine Blaine Man declined in a diplomatic Way with thanks and considerations of the highest esteem. Quot finally Robert t. Lincoln was sounded and the offer made of the Interior department soon to be vacated by Secretary Noble. Or. Lincoln was also permitted to gaze upon the presidency in perspective for 1886 and told that to could succeed surely in that year. Quot the minister who thinks it possible that lightning May strike him As Early As 1892 declined finally a Long Jones chairman of the Republican state committee of Illinois was consulted and he said that Oglesby might possibly do the Job. And there it a unique Calendar. Every Day a greeting from a Distant Friend was seen. Its Pei a Bazar. I some one the other Day thought of this about a Calendar a daughter was to go away to be gone a Long time on the other Side of the Earth so the Mother thinking to bring her Good cheer bought a Calendar. Now Tho Ordinary Calendar differs Little from its fellow except happily now and then in the Way of quoted phrase or Blithe some child or maybe decorative fruit and Flower. More than that no Ordinary Calendar seems an individual s very own. As How could it with its counterpart on anybody a desk and its mates All manufactured by the dozen. But the Calendar this Mother made could be duplicated by no one. For this is what she did. Below the Date on each Leaf there was a Blank space. She therefore took the Calendar apart sending its 366 leaves to As Many friends and relatives asking each to write some sort of salutation on this Blank space below the Date. When these were returned they were bound together again and the Calendar was Given to tile daughter who knew nothing of what had been done. She was made to Promise however to tear off no Leaf until the Day had dawned when the Leaf was due. What a source of Delight such a Calendar a would to to an exile from Home can easily be imagined. Every Day a different greeting from a different Friend. Every Day a new Surprise and never to know till the Morrow what Friend was to Send a word of Good cheer. Tho one addition this Mother might make on another Calendar of its kind would be to ask each Friend to keep a record of the Date when the greeting tis it were fell due then to remember both greeting and Date so that when the exile read it in one of those faraway countries she and her friends at Home might for a moment at least stand consciously Faco to face. A refractory Finger. The ring Finger proves a source of trouble to All pianists. Houston Herald every one who tried to learn How to play the piano knows what a refractory member Tho ring Finger or As the foreign piano fingering designates it the fourth Finger is. Of you Are not a piano student place your hand on a table and see for yourself How impossible it is to raise that Finger As High As you do the others. Now Whilo Many Aro aware of this difficulty not everybody knows just what is the cause. Some simply allude to it As the a weak fourth Finger and let it go at that without seeking for the cause of the weakness. The trouble is that when Man was created the possibility of his wishing at some future time to play the piano was overlooked and some unnecessary tendons were placed in his hands which do not tend to facilitate his efforts in that direction. If the Muscles of your hand were Laid Bare you would find two tendons running to the first Finger and two to the Little Finger while but one goes to the Middle and one to the ring Finger but the one connected with the ring Finger sends off two Short tendons which connect it with the tendons of the Middle and Little fingers and it is these two Short tendons which do not seem to be of any special use which cause piano students a vast amount of trouble. Not Only do they hold Down the fourth Finger but they abridge the Span of the hand. A Way to overcome the difficulty by some other Means than by Long and assiduous practice has often been sought. Robert Schumann fastened a Cord to hts fourth Finger and passed the Cord through a Pulley fastened to the ceiling. He could elevate hts Finger by this Means at will while playing his pieces and would hold it Back for a Long time. His device was not Only unsuccessful in releasing the fourth Finger but caused permanent injury to the hand to such an extent that he was forced to give up piano playing. That the difficulty caused by the superfluous tendons May he overcome by persistent practice there can be no doubt. , Rubinstein Balow Tau sip and hundreds of others attest this truth in their work. As to the policy of having these tendons Cut by the surgeons knife and thereby escaping much hard work we find that it is a mooted question among musicians. More of a circus than intended. Ashland wis., aug. 9.�?when the circus tent was blown Down by the wind at Washburn yesterday prof. Williams was exhibiting his trained horses. The horses dashed through the crowd of spectators trampling Many children under foot. One More of the victims died today. The tent was carried fully a mile into the Woods. All of the animals which escaped were recaptured today after an exciting Chase except the Bengal tigers and an Anaconda which Are still at Large. A Bear was caught behind a restaurant eating Peanut shells. Two bosons were captured and led Back like pet dogs. One of till elephants became mired in a hog and was badly injured. The total damage is estimated at about $30,000. Tried to raise twins in an incubator. New York aug. 9.�?two interesting patients died at Gouverneur Hospital today. They were twins Only two Days old but the methods taken to preserve their lives invested the Case with unusual importance. Their vitality was very Low at birth and their tiny frames were imperfectly developed. Or. L. F. Donahoe the House doctor saw at a glance that it was a Case for a mechanical incubation. There is no incubator at the Hospital hut he improvised a hatching Box out of a Small Bath tub Aud at one time his i Experiment gave Promise of Success. The Mother of the twins is Lizzie Gold i Berg 23 years of age. She came from j Russia with her husband Isaac Goldberg 1 two to Quot Quot a business incidental remarks on crops and booming and All Europe to to supplied with brain from reports of climate and Harvest a foreign notes. New York aug. 7.�?r. G. Dun amp weekly review of Trade says Iii part Quot with business in Many lines disappointingly Dull the feeling of Confidence nevertheless distinctly increases. Its basis is that crop prospects Crow clearer and brighter while prospects of foreign demand for american Grain expand with every weeks nows. Unless Many concurring reports official and unofficial Are greatly in error Tho russian crops have so far failed that exports from that country must be Small while requirements of England France and Germany must be unusually Largo. Hence a very heavy movement of wheat for the season receipts at Western Points exceeding 1,000,000 bushels every Day depresses the Price but Little. The belief increases that the country will be Able to sell such vast quantities of Grain abroad and to draw so heavily upon foreign supplies of capital that All Home industries will be greatly stimulated. Cotton reports Are also most favourable on Tho whole and cont is making excellent Progress with an enormous acreage. Monetary difficulties Are still in the future for though at Somo Northern Points markets Are tight supplies at Western centres Are adequate for legitimate business and Mere speculation gets less help than usual. Depression in Somo Arent industries continues and is real but May be traced to causes obviously not permanent. Thus the Iron manufacture is much ret Back by inability of railroads to make purchases. Because they fail to negotiate securities. But when Large crops and profitable business have placed the companies in a stronger position they will to Able to buy freely again. Cotton manufacture retarded by the extraordinary fall in the Price of Cotton and consequent losses on goods made from material purchased Early in the past year still finds a fairly Large demand and at some reduction in prices most goods Are moving freely. The Wool manufacture is distinctly improving and sales of Wool at Boston Rise to 5,196.000 pounds the sales there at Philadelphia arid new York since Jan. A being 148,000,000 pounds against 138,000,000 last year to the same Date. Reports from other cities reflect a growing Confidence in the future at Boston Trade in merchandise increases and is very Good for boots and shoes with factories Well employed and Western and Southern reports quite favourable. With Active Trade in Wool and better in goods the close Money Market causes Somo embarrassment sales of Wool Are Largo at Hartford and of dry goods increasing. There and at Philadelphia in most trades there is much complaint of slow collections but considerable activity is seen in Glass and fair sales of paints and chemicals at Philadelphia with improvement in shoes hides Ana leather. Grocers find no fault with the volume of Trade but collections Are extremely poor. At Pittsburg manufactured Iron is fairly Active and the Glass Trade Good but collections rather slow. At Cleveland Trade is enlarging with Confidence and at Cincinnati the furniture Trade is especially growing but at both cities collections Aro but fair. Chicago feels the effect of great crops distinctly wheat receipts being seven fold last years Rye fivefold Barley twofold Wool nearly double and in porn beef butter and hides some increase appears As also in sales of dry goods. Sales of clothing and shoes Are larger than Ever before at this season and in All lines collections Are satisfactory at St. Louis the demand for Money in Tho Interior grows More pressing and commercial borrowers Aro held closely to their needs. At Minneapolis and St. Paul Omaha and Kansas City Trade is generally Good at Ixia Siville and Nashville improving and of Montgomery the demand for goods is fair but credits very conservative while at Memphis and Savannah reports of Trade Aro less favourable and at Jacksonville business is very Dull. Unfavourable weather has strengthened Cotton at new Orleans and the demand for sugar is Good with Rice Strong and Money in Good demand but with supplies ample for legitimate Trade. The business failures occurring throughout the country during the last seven Days As reported to k. G. Dun amp co. And e. Russell amp co. Of the mercantile Agency number for Tho United states 207. And for Canada 24. Or a total of 231, As compared with a total of 247 last week Aud 254 the week previous to the last. For the corresponding week of last year the figures were 208, representing 179 in the United states and 29 in Canada. More Money than Ever. National finances show a healthy condition. Washington aug 5.�?a statement has been prepared at the Treasury department in regard to the amounts of Money in circulation on the first of july of the years 18g0, 1865, 1885, 1889 and 1891, from which it appears that the assertion that there has been since the War a great reduction of Tho amount of Money in circulation is without foundation. The statement is As follows All the statements furnished Are made upon precisely the same basis. Tho amount of each kind of Money in the Treasury and the remainder is Given As the amount in circulation. There is nothing omitted from the statement which should appear there except minor coins Nickels and pennies and they Are left out of All the reports because of the difficulty in estimating the amount of them in use. As the amount at the present time is certainly greater than in the earlier years their omission will not be unfavourably criticised by those who contend that there is now a Scarcity of Money. The amount of Money in circulation in 1860 was about $436,000,000, and the about per capita was $13.85. In 1865 there were $723,000,000 in circulation Aud the per capita amount was $20.82. Twenty years later Tho circulation was Over $1,292,000,000, and the per capita was $23.02 while on Jan. I 1891, the amount was nearly $1,529,000,000, with $24.10 As the per capita allowance the highest in Tho history of the United states. Owing to shipments of Gold to foreign countries there has been a decline since Jan. I 1891, not Only in the per capita amount but in the total circulation. On aug. I notwithstanding the outflow of Gold the total was about $1,600,000,000, and the amount per capita was $23.37. A Good time Oom Long. Handsome prospects ahead for the Export Trade of Boston. Boston business circles Are listening to rumours that Are crowded with Prosperity. All the nows that has come from the great Grain centres of the old world is burdened with Tho same complaint Quot prospects for crops poor. The weather has been most unfavourable. There will be a Groat falling off in the yield per on the other hand the news from our Grain growing districts is most encouraging a Quot Western Farmers Are rejoicing in the wealth covering Thier wheat Fields. It will be the largest yield per acre for Many already Bostons Commerce has begun to feel the increase in foreign demands for bread stuffs. All the outgoing european steamers Are booked to carry Largo cargoes of grains As an example of this increasing Trade the report at the chamber of Commerce is that Quot the engagements of sacked flour for London daring the past week have been for the next two months special steamers will in All probability have to be chartered to meet the demands of our Distant neighbors for food. Over 16,250 tons Are now under contract to be taken by ships during August and september besides 50, Bushel of whoa. That our present Means of communication is overburdened was shown yesterday. When Over 2600 tons which were offered Bud to to held for Lack of freight room. So it is Only a question of a Short time when Tho bags of Gold the Export of which created some alarm in our financial world a month or two ago will begin to return and Tho business world is shaping its Broad eat smiles. They know. So they say. That it would return. They know that it simply wont to pay the extraordinary importation that closed Tho old Tariff taxes in anticipation of Tho new. Now that the Western Farmer is asserting himself and the Fertile lands of that Groat country Are smiling under a Bountiful Harvest the Gold must come Back that the people of the old world May live. Tho Cecal exports from Chicago now York. Baltimore and Boston will if Tho present indications Are reliable exceed Tho outgo for very Many years. All the flour for Export is now coming from the Northwest by Lake and rail on through Bills of lading. Carpets May Cost More Tariff ruling affecting importers of cheap wools. The decision of Tho general appraisers at new York upon the interpretation of paragraph 383 of Tho now Tariff act strengthens the position of the Ohio protected Wool growers Tho decision was Given yesterday upon the protests of h. S. Higgins so co., Tho carpet manufacturers and Thacher amp co. Of new York. The conclusion of the appraiser deals a serious blow at the importers and manufacturers of Smyrna. East Indian russian and the cheaper wools which Are used in the manufacture of carpets upon the construction of this Section of the Tariff act much controversy has been wagered by the Wool growers and the manufacturers. The manufacturers and importers have contended from the beginning that Wool of the third class i. E., Smyrna. Valparaiso russian Ca moist hair and South american wools together with imported wools from Turkey Greece. Egypt Aud Syria not provided for should come in on an and Valorme duty of i2 per cent of the value of 13 cents and under and 60 per cent above that value. These wools come from the countries named via the markets of England where they Are sold to our manufacturers and importers. Before leaving their native country the wools Are sorted and thence shipped to English markets. The foreign buyer has no Choice in the condition of the wools whether assorted or in the crude fleeces when buying. This All ii is with Tim Wool grower in the Distant country. Under the decision of the appraisers this Wool of class three when assorted is subject to a specific duty of twice Tho duty to which it would be otherwise subject under Par. 883 of the now act. The decision of tile appraisers holds that the Quot sorting clause of the paragraph applies to All wools including those of the third class. The effect of this is to place a specific duty of twice the amount to which the Wool would be liable As third class Wool thus making the duty amount to Between la and 12 cents per Pound. This of course will make it inconvenient if not an impossibility for Tho manufacturer of carpets and the importer to do business. Sugar Sells at old Price Bear movement does not Benefit the consumer. Leading grocers Wero interviewed in Boston upon the probability of a reduction of Price in sugar to the general consuming Public resulting from the Spreckles slave Meyer Quot heart Light in new York. At Cobb Aldrich amp they say the Low sugar barometer indicates a temporary condition of things Only. These belligerent sugar Barons they say May Compromise and come together at any moment. The stocks in the hands of Large retailers hero Are not heavy and there is no reason for their shifting the Price Winch is now Low enough. Or. Larker at Cobb hates amp Yerxa a says Quot of present quotations should last the Price would be lowered to Consumers. I done to think however that the present prices will hold. There will probably be a reaction to higher prices soon. Four cents is the Price at which foreign sugar in Bond was held Tor delivery april i when the duty was at s. B. Pierces it was said that Tho present Quot drop would not reach the Tea table or the breakfast table. Maune husbandry. Monthly crop bulletin of state Board of agriculture. Augusta me., aug. 5.�?Tho monthly crop bulletin was Given out by the state Board of agriculture tonight. The Hay crop has been almost harvested Aud it is estimated will amount to from 1,250,000 to 1,400,000 tons. Oats Barley and wheat wherever sown have made Strong vigorous growth with rugged stalks and Heads Are now filling with every indication of a full crop. Especially is this the Case with the oat crop. Which now promises to be very Largo All Over the Stato. The area in Beans is larger than usual and the present Outlook extremely favourable. Wherever soil and climatic conditions Are favourable for Corn growing a larger area was planted this year than for Many years the greater portion being yellow.

Tho City a capacity was sorely taxed to Tako care of All tis visitors but All went Well and the end of the week saw the crowds of veterans depart full of praises for the City. Tim 25th annual Encampment of the o. A. Met in formal session wednesday morning in the Mammoth Hall that had been set apart for the business deliberations of the veterans.

In his address Tho commander in chief referred in fitting terms to Tho deaths of the senior vice commander. Richard f. Tobin and fast commander in chief Charles Dev ens acknowledged Tho Aid received from the women a Relief corps and paid a High compliment to the sons of veterans. Rela Tive to the color question which has been disturbing the departments of Louisiana and Mississippi he said Quot from various sources of information that have been acres stifle to me i believe that a Large majority of both White Aud coloured comrades in Tho department of Louisiana and Mississippi Are Strong in the conviction that it would be for the Best interests of All individually and of their posts and of the order to have a separate department in Louisiana and some of the other Gull states. Under the head of charitable Relief he had this to say Quot the official reports show that our order during the year now closing has liberally met the demand upon the Toioi fund. The amount paid from the fund alone is $333,-699.85. It is estimated that nearly or quite As much More has been paid by individual comrades and not appearing in official reports. In addition the amount paid for the Relief of distressed comrades by the women a Relief corns during Tho same period As officially reported and not including cases of personal Aid not so appearing. Is $152,710.80. Reports have not reached me from other auxiliary organizations. Such As sons of veterans ladies of Tho g. A. R., Etc. The figures Given above show a Largo increase Over the amount of any previous year. It will he seen in Tho adjutant general a report that the total amount of Relief paid out by the grand army of the Republic not including payments by auxiliary bodies since 1870, is More than $2,500,000. Tile commander in chief recommended that action be taken for the care of the Mcgregor cottage by act of Congress or otherwise. Aud that further action to taken with regard to Tho erection of a memorial Hall at Decatur iu., upon the subject of pensions.

It is known As the disability Bill. It repealed none of the previous enactments but was supplementary thereto. The last National resolutions thanking Congress and the president for this Law but favouring service pension legislation. Under the most recent pension legislation pensions have been allowed at Tho rate of More than 1000per Day and it is expected that this average will be maintained until the docket of applications is substantially cleared. While i Boli Evo that we should not be carried away even by a generous sentiment to a liberality beyond our Means i for one cannot refuse my assent to the principle which our pension legislation has enacted into Law that no Man who risked his life in defense of the Union should Ever want for bread.

Something of a Novelty in Tho Way of entertainment for Tho veterans was provided by the City authorities wednesday in the shape of a monster picnic at belie Isle bark which was participated in by Over 10,000 comrades and their friends. A bounteous lunch preceded the formal exercises. The delegates to the annual convention of the National association of naval veterans filled one of Tho big rooms in the court House. Thomas l.

A Fortescue or Philadelphia Secretary treasurer Charles Dewitt Marcy of Boston historian j. Willard Brown of Boston. The of the g. A. have hold a very successful meeting.

This is the fifth year of its National organization. Its total membership is Between 15,000 and 20.000, and the president states that 260 new circles have been chartered during the past year. Other societies. Thursday was the closing Day of the 25th annual Encampment of the g. A. Home sensation has been created by the address of the president of the National association of Union sex prisoners of War e. H. Williams of Indiana. Referring to the treatment accorded the sex prisoners the president says Quot for number of years Bills have been presented to Congress looking to such measures As we Felt were due us. But so far All of cur appeals Havo availed us nothing. It would seem that Tho suffering and death of 47,000 of our comrades who Ara buried around the Southern prisons should Ever be kept sacred in memory of what they suffered for their country for by the sacrifice of such men civilization survives. Yet for 25 years our government Bas never so much As Given us a vote of thanks for tile sacrifice among the reports of committees made was one embodying a Bill to be presented at the next session of Congress in behalf of the soldiers who Wero in prison for a period of not less than 60 Days or More providing that they shall receive $2 for every Day of their confinement from the the new officers of the organization Are As follows president Stephen m.

The i of lord troops nobly the vexed Quot Raco problem was effectively settled for ail time so far As it concerns Tho grand army of the Republic thursday. William Warner of Missouri As chairman of Tho committee on Tho Coni Mander in Ehica s recommendations presented a re port. I says. Quot this organization the grand win of the Republic from its birth at Decatur 111., in 1866, to this. Its Silver Encampment has never turned from its posts doors any deserving Comrade however Humble on account of his nationality Creed or color the Only qualification for membership is an honorable discharge rom Tho United states army Navy or Marine corps of 1861 to 1865,�?~ As the evidence that How aided in maintaining the Honor integrity and supremacy of the National government during the late rebellion providing always that the applicant has done nothing in civil life to cast a stain on his honorable record in Liberty a cause. Quot during the fierce struggle for the life of the nation we stood shoulder to shoulder As i comrades tried. It is too late now to Divide i on the color line. A Man who is Good enough to stand Between the Flag and those who would destroy it when the Tate of the nation was trembling in the balance is Good enough to he a Comrade in any department of the g. A. In the opinion if your committee the fact that the department of Louisiana and Mississippi consists of posts a part of which Are composed of White comrades the others of coloured comrades is no sufficient reason for making this Radical change in our rules and regulations. Quot in View of the facts submitted to your committee it is of the opinion that it would he inexpedient to place the authority with the Cotmil Sundor in chief to organize new or provisional departments in state in which there Aro organized a minority report signed by one member. Was also presented. A discussion arose but finally by a Viva Voce vote the majority report was overwhelmingly adopted. H. M. Duffle id of Michigan was elected senior vice commander in chief t. S.

Detroit mich., aug. 6.�?immediately after the meeting of Tho Encampment this morning the election of a comma Dor in chief w As declared the first business. There were four candidates John Palmer of Albany n. A a. G. Weiss Artof Milwaukee we. W. P. A Godbery of California s. Ii. Hurst of Ohio. O capt. John Palmer. Benjamin e. Bryant of Wisconsin placed Weis Sari in nomination in an eloquent speech. Corporal Tanner of new York placed Palmer in nomination and Massachusetts new Jersey and Pennsylvania seconded Tho nomination. A. J. Hollingsworth of Ohio nominated Hurst Aud w. B. L. Barnes of California nominated Smedberg. Just before the ballot opened s. H. Hurst. Ohio a candidate withdrew in favor of Palmer of new York. The announcement of Tho first ballot with Palmer far in the Lead indicated the certainty of his ultimate election. At the conclusion when the result was still somewhat in doubt the California delegation changed its entire vote to Palmer. An enthusiastic Delegate at this juncture moved that j Almers election be declared unanimous and it prevailed amid the wildest enthusiasm. Col. Henry m. Outfield of Detroit was elected senior vice commander in chief by acclamation. John Palmer was born on Staten Island Mardi 22, 1842. In Early manhood he removed to Albany where he engaged successfully in the wholesale fruit business. He Aas been twice elected commander of the new York state o. A. A. And has also been senior vice commander in chief. His four be us faithful service during the War established his record As a Gallant Soldier and an efficient officer. Comrade Palmer enlisted in company a 91st new York volunteers sept. To. 1861, and during his continuous service with the regiment in Caum and Field was successively promoted from private to Corporal sergeant sergeant major second Aud first lieutenant adjutant and Captain. Fie participated in every engagement in which the regiment took part Ana the fact that it inst Over 300 killed and wounded is the Hest evidence of its services. Comrade Palmer lost his father in the army. He had two Brothers who left Tho service physical wrecks from wounds and disease contracted in the army and when the War closed lie was left with a Mother and her five children to care and provide for. Comrade Palmer is a charter member of in a Benedict Post g. A. A of Albany which was organized in 1867, and Dun Jig its existence has spent Over $50,000 in Charity. He has been commander of the Post five times and presided at the National Encampment of the g. A. R., hold at Dayton o. While senior vice commander in chief his 24 years Active service in the g. A. Has Given him an extended acquaintance with prominent g. A. Men throughout the nation. And has gained for him a wide Circle of friends and admirers. At the National Encampment at Boston last summer Comrade Palmer was chairman to the committee on resolutions and acquitted himself with great credit. He not chairman of the executive committee of the Board of trustees of the Bath n. Y., soldiers Home of which he has been to years a member. In politics he is a stanch Republican. He has never held a political office. As a citizen Comrade Palmer commands Confidence and esteem and in his business relations his ability and integrity Are above reproach. In whatever he undertakes he is open Active and aggressive. And is never afraid to make a fight for w hat he believes to be right. No Man in the state Las a cleaner or brighter record As a Soldier nor has any been More devoted to the interests of the g. A. K. Policemen and there kept passing through and into the legislative chamber members who wished to secure Good seats for the Days sitting by following an old custom of leaving their hats on the benches. Hardly had a big Ben a the great Bell in Tho commons Tower struck off the hour when from a Distant passage came a Peculiar Long drawn Monotone of Quot speaker a announcing the coming of the presiding officer of the House of commons. Presently so Melody roared and in swy ept that functionary with his at i tenants. They made quite a procession. First i came a very respectable looking Gray haired Man of perhaps 50. Attired in Black silk drawing room costume such As May have been worn too or More years ago and carrying a sword by his Side. After him strode another respectable looking old gentleman similarly attired and carrying Over his shoulder a enormous Golden Mace surmounted by a Golden Crown. Then came the speaker a judicial faced old gentleman wearing the celebrated wig and Long Loose Black Robes the train of which was carried by another Gray haired Man in old fashioned costume of Black. Next followed the chaplain in his Robes none other indeed than the venerable and scholarly Canon Farrar and the rear was brought in by two or three More lesser functionaries Only one of whom was dressed in the Ordinary present time garb. This was part one of the show. Part two no strangers were permitted to witness. It consisted of the chaplain Reading the statutory prayers of the established Church to which following some old usage none but those having the privilege of the House Are permitted to listen and very very few of those who were privileged listened either How old this ceremony attending the Entrance of the speaker is or How much longer it will continue no Ono ventures to say though it is treated As 81115 and i Zeles by the great majority of members. Still More absurd is the passage of a Black Rod Quot to Tho commons to summon them to the bar of the lords to witness the Royal assent to Bills which have passed parliament Black Rod who is really the sergeant at Arnis of the House of l ords is decked out in an old fashioned and showy uniform and carries a Long Black Rod capped with Gold. Ashe approaches the floors of the commons Are quickly closed. Three times he raps with his Gold capped Rod on the closed doors and then Tho head doorkeeper opens a Little wicket in one of Tho doors and asks who knocks. Black Rod answers giving his name and his business of which the doorkeeper apprised Tho speaker. Seeing that All is Well the speaker bids that Black Rod be admitted. Whereupon the latter with great deference reports the summoning of the commons to the bar of the lairds. Thereupon the speaker of Tho commons with certain members of the House leave the commons chamber with much dignity and state and follow Black Rod Over to the lords where they Are made to stand in a sort of Little pen at the Bottom of the chamber. All this comes Down through history. Tho Sovereign is not supposed to come to the commons but goes to the Peers where the commons Are summoned. The closing of the commons doors and the formal knocking of the messenger is a survival from the Days of those in real nits unseal tile stuarts when Tho commons Wero fighting against the encroachments of the Royal prerogative and Quot the divine right of in the lords there is still More ridiculous and meaningless ceremony. At the top of the chamber where the speakers chair stands in the commons is tile Roval throne wit i a Dull red covered chair and a carved Wood dais. On each Side and lower is a chair one for the Prince of Wales and the other for tile next highest functionary. These three Clairs Aro occupied Only on rare ceremonials when tile lairds Aud to the pageant their Robes coronets garters decorations and swords. Lord Salisbury a portly gentleman with grizzled hair and Bald intellectual head. Sits a pretentiously on tile government Bench his hat on or off. As fancy dictates. With him sit Tim other members of the government who belong to that House and on Tho Bench across the aisle facing them Are the chief members of the opposition. Tho primate of England in his Black gown with White sleeves sits on the Bench just behind the prime minister lie is an old Man and at a distance has a resemblance to senator Gorman. Every once in a Whilo the Duke of Argyle puts in an appearance Aud makes things hum by hotly and bitterly attacking something or somebody for attempting to break Down privilege and extend Equality and democracy. Now and again the Premier with that ease Aud ability of which he is master rivets attention with a few words touched with supercilious Ness. At most other times the Short sessions Are marked by the dullest Deariest talk. Practically All the vitality of parliament is in the commons where the new men appear and the great political Battles Aro fought the Peers being above everything else a conservative body xvii use strength is in defence. There Are several features about the rules and methods of procedure in the commons which Are radically different from those Winch govern in Congress. In Tho first place the speaker is much less of a partisan. Though elected from among the members of the House his office is that of a presiding officer and nothing More. He does not appoint committees As does the speaker of the House of representatives. That is done by the House itself for Tho most part through what is known As the committee of selection. In order that there shall be no personal influence bearing on him the speaker of the commons is provided with a salary of �6000 $30,000 a year. He moreover is Given free a splendid residence in the parliament building thoroughly appointed at Public expense and has a pension of �5000 or �6000 a year to look Forward to on his retirement. Procedure is governed for the most part by Quot orders a which Are made up of resolutions of parliament passed at various periods within 350 years. But outside of the orders Are customs which Are closely observed. For instance it is Only a custom which reserves a Bench for the members of the government and another Bench for the chief members of the opposition. Tile most important feature in both branches of parliament which Congress has not is the privilege of questioning members of the government. After the transaction of preliminary business each legislative Day the ministers Are subject to questions by members As to Public matters. All questions Are a a put upon the notice anti Are brought up in due form. A answer May be declined on the ground of Public interest but this does not occur very frequently. The custom of members wearing their hats in parliament is an old one. Tho members uncover to address the speaker or the House at All times save when the question Lias been put when the member if he desires to address the speaker must Wear ins hat and Call the speaker not by title but by name he being in theory outside the rules. Parliament is sometimes called the first club of Europe. It might Well be for it Bas All the elegance appointments and exclusiveness of an aristocratic club and since no salary is paid to members Only men of Independent incomes can afford to be elected to it so that there is that polish about those who frequent it which comes from tile Possession of wealth. Beholding Only the splendid equipage that come rolling Uno Palace Yard with the Coachman in gorgeous liveries Aud with powdered hair. And observing the Fine Rai Merit of tile ladies who come to Dine with their husbands in the commons or peer a apartments or on the Terrace overlooking the thames a stranger might easily mistake the houses of parliament for anything but apolitical Centre the Homo of the most Fant ods Abd powerful legislature in the world.
