The prices of All cereals have been remarkably sustained in View of the abundance of production. The returns showing condition of the coming crops of Winter grains Are not generally favourable. On the Atlantic coast some injury is reported on Early sown areas i the hessian Fly. condition of Rye is a Little higher than that of wheat making an average of a 88.8. Eight million por hops. American growers probable receipts Tor the odorous Parent of yeast. Spring Field mass., dec.

Cotton returns of december to Tho department of agriculture relate to average prices on plantations. The complaint of a remunerative values is general and the declaration frequent that the crop does not return the Cost of production. A feeling of discouragement pervades the report and a disposition to reduce area is expressed. The Plantation Price which is the actual rate for Cotton sold at the Gin. Averages 7.3 cents per Pound. For five years preceding the Range was from 8.1 to 8.6, and averaged nearly 8.4 cents.

An almost unexampled season for harvesting is reported with picking ginning and marketing far advanced. While the Fibre is at Many Points Short it is clean Aud of Good color. _ Railroad clogging delays departure of steamers. New York. Dec. blockade brought about by the enormous amount of train shipments from the West Bas had an effect reaching far beyond Tho railroads for weeks the land transportation lines have been complaining of the dearth of cars and lately the companies have had to refuse Grain shipments and now shipping men All along Tho Atlantic coast Are confronted by a problem which is proving As troublesome to them As the car famine is to the railroads. But As the Grain is not coming through from the West in a satisfactory manner there result delays to steamers for which there appears to be no remedy. Just now labor is scarce and that sometimes Means the loss of two or three clays in handling a ship. Add to this the fact that the elevators Quot have their hands full a and one gets an idea of the annoyance to which exporters Are subject. Steamers of the regular lines which have to get away on certain Days Are now and then forced to Start without All the freight on Board which they have contracted to carry simply because the shipper has been unable to get the Grain he expected to put on Board. As for vessels other than those of the regular lines they have to wait. Practically All the Grain is now exported in steamers sailing vessels doing Little except in certain trades. Most of the steamers chartered for Grain come Here from the other Side of the Ocean without much freight aboard. The eastward voyage has to Pav the expenses of the round trip and therefore the delays at this end of the line Are All the More annoying to owners and agents. Of vessels which have left port in the last few Days a Good Many have been considerably behind the time at which they would have gotten away usually. In some instances the delay has run up to to clays or european Trade treaties. Berlin. Dec. von Caprivi opened the debate on the new commercial treaties in the Reich Stag today. After explaining the effect of the treaties on the commercial relations of Germany Austria Italy the Chancellor said that the treaties show that Germany has also made a Good agreement with America and Russia especially in tile matter of Tho reduction of Corn duties on imports from those countries from five to three and a half Murks. This was a great reduction said the Chancellor though it was necessary in order to secure1 provisions Iii the recent of a future War. The reduction he planned entailed no sacrifice on the part of Tho German Farmers owing to the present High prices of cer als which More than amply covered any differences in prices which might be caused by the reduced duties. The preamble to Tho austrian Zollverein Bills explains that the treaty with Germany is for the purpose of opening that Market still More to austrian products. With regard to tile treat with Italy it is stated that Austria is obliged to concede the italian demand for a Large Concession in Linen duties rather than to jeopardize the treaty. In reference to Grain duties p is stated that so Long As Russia will not conclude a treaty with Germany. Hungary will be Able to successfully compete with Russia Iii the German Market in the matter of cereals. The hungarian press objects to the German convention with the United states. Strong language is used about the a a disillusioning of Austria and Hungary As to the advantage they will derive from the Zoll Verein. Hungary expected a monopoly of the German Corn Trade and now fears that the same facility will be extended to Russia this distrust in Hungary is held to account Tor the desire shown in Austria to hasten tile commercial treaties through the Reichs Ruth. Notes. The american Bobbin. Spool and shuttle company which recently purchased the Wood turning Plant of f. S. Richmond at Livermore Falls me., has a capital of $2,000,000 and owns 22 Mills in new eng land and several thousand arms of Timber land in the Best sections of Maine and the White Mountain Region of new Hampshire. The new Woollen Mill at Newport. Me., has been finished and Hie machinery is being put in. Ladies dress goods will be manufactured Aud there is already an order for several thousand pieces of a particular pattern. The Mill is owned entirely by local capitalists who have already advanced $28,000. Or. Henry c. Sproul of bar Harbor me., has two farms on Isle a Haut one containing 500 acres of pasturing the other too acres. He has 40 acres under cultivation. On june i to had vegetables for Sale Iii his Market from tin re. He raised this year 800 bushels of potatoes has 400 bushels stored also 500 bushels of roots has 27 cows 300 sheep and 3 horses. T. O. La ame of Massachusetts formerly of Winslow Bas been engaged recently in the Vicinity of Waterville. Me., in ascertaining the greatest height the River Bas reached Iii the past Century the greatest fresher was that of May 22, 1832. I Hen at Fairfield the water was 26 feet above the usual height and Iii october 1854, the water was nearly As High. These facts will enable Mill owners to fix the height of the dam and site of the new Mills. The Farmers in Indiana Are preparing to demand of Tho next legislature that a Law be enacted reducing the state rate of Railroad fare to two cents a mile. This is precipitated by the action of Tho Central Traelic association refusing to Grant reduced rates to members of the Many Farmers organizations which meet Here this month and next. Heretofore the toads have Given these Farmer representatives a half rate fare without any questions being asked but this year it was decided to make those who came to Indianapolis to attend agricultural meetings pay Lull fare. The London times doubts whether Chancellor von Caprivi s plan of forming alliances to secure a food Supply in the event of War will prove a More trustworthy resource than the alternative of a maritime Supply. The question of contraband will not to determined by belligerents alone. On Tho contrary it is pretty Clear that the deciding voice will be that of a Strong Power like England or Tho United states at once Neutral and farm in the West. An unsuspecting Public licks its chops and the Kansas Genius reaps a Rich Harvest. Lawrence ran., dec. 8.�?on the Bank of Tho Kaw River about two Miles above this City is a farm on which is probably the most unique business in the West. The English Sparrow has always been looked upon As an outlaw among Birds and a Post to Man but j. D. Norton had an Eye to business and thought there was Money in Tho Little Birds if they were proudly handled. He got As Many Asho could collect and took them to his place whore he had arranged houses and Corners for them to build their nest and propagate. All along the River there grows a tall Weed which nears a seed especially liked by the Birds and the sparrows soon found it out and Mado their Home contentedly on Tho farm. This was four years ago and the Little Fellows have multiplied in a marvellous manner. Or. Norton is now reaping the Benefit of his foresight and is supplying the Market with Birds at Good round prices. They Are sold As sparrows at All seasons but when they reach the Tabios of the first class hotels Ami restaurants in Kansas City St. Louis and Chicago they become Reed Birds and Rice Birds according to Tho season. The Birds have accumulated by the thousands. And now the whole country is alive with them. Or. Norton Lias the business Down to a system and does not flood the Market with them but Sells just enough to keep Ute hotels scantily supplied Ami thus keeps the Price up. Tho Birds multiply so rapidly that there is no Clanger of their boing depopulated. As they bring Good prices Tho Man who thought of the idea is coining Money and while lie is at very Little expense his flock is increasing rapidly and bids fair to bring him a Fortune As the intention is to Supply the Eastern markets As soon As lie can make Tho proper arrangements for transporting the Birds. _ _ bacteria in our milk. Prof. Sedgwick discovers faults in our system of Supply. Prof. W. T. Sedgwick of the Institute of technology read a paper on Quot milk Supply and Tho Public health at the regular meeting of the society of arts Boston last week. The professor said among other things a the milk Supply of cities is not As clean and As fresh As it ought to be owing to the condition of the cow stables and the time which elapses Between the drawing from the cow and the Selling. Quot germs of decomposition have time to grow and milk arrives in the City partly he gave figures showing the bacteria in the milk in different parts of Boston and suggested that this condition of affairs was not Only unclean but a positive menace to Public health. It was shown that we Cook most of our food before using but milk is still used very much As our Savage ancestors used it. In the raw condition. The professor suggested As a remedy to these evils that greater cleanliness on the part of Tho Farmers and special care to secure greater freshness of milk would go far to alleviate the condition of things. A for adults a he said. A it is a matter of less consequence than to invalids and delicate what and Why is horse Power the term horse Power was derived from the Power of a horse As established by James Watts who found by Experiment that the average Mill horse could lift 150 pounds when attached to a rope Over a Pulley at the continuous Speed of 220 feet per minute or two and a half Miles per hour 150 times 220 equals 33,000 pounds lifted one foot per minute. This has since been verified in England by an average on the continued Day work of 144 horses used m ploughing when the average work was found to be 163 pounds lifted 220 feet per minute or at the rate of two Aud a half Miles p a hour. This somewhat exceeded Watts assignment of the horse Jio Wor of work. The actual Power of an average horse is Between two thirds and three quarters of the accepted horse Power 33,000 Foo pounds. _ there is Only one Boston. There Are two Kansas cities. The principal one is in Missouri the lesser one in Kansas. This second Kansas City tries to Bank on the Prosperity of the first.

They Are also Verv free to charge that there was a Deal made Between senator Brice on one Side and Sherman s friends on Tho other which looked to Briceus retention in the Senate and Sherman a re election As senator. A one of the clauses in Hie contract was that or. Brice was not to furnish too Many sinews of War in the recent Campaign. Witness the following which is copied from a Cleveland special to the Cincinnati commercial g Lizotte As an interview of a Brilliant Ohio Republican i v a i have been red \ to it a Sherman but i am beginning to weald.1 n. I can to exactly understand How it is that Secretary Foster Tho life Long Friend and business partner of Cal Brice comes out and declares himself for Sherman for the Senate and then less than 48 hours afterwards or. Sherman through the columns of a democratic paper declares that As far As he is concerned lie will not object to or. Brice taking a seat in the Senate to w High nobody in the state be he Democrat or Republican. Believes he has Tho slightest Legal title. Its mighty queer. That s All in be got to it is further the talk among Foraker republicans that two years ago Brice gave $25, to the democratic Campaign fund w Hen lie was a candidate for senator and this year when there was an equally Good Chance to elect a democratic legislature failed to give hut a paltry $5000. Iii this connection Secretary of the Treasury Foster is receiving a Groat Deal of abuse from his old a arty associates in Ohio. Maj. Mckinley is experiencing in overwhelming Force the truth of the old quota to on. A uneasy lies the head that wears a the Foraker men Are determined to make a. Mckinley show hts hand in the senatorial fight. The major said that be would remain strictly Neutral that both candidates had helped him in his canvass for governor and tie did not feel that it would be becoming for him to take part either Way. This does not please Hie followers of the sex governor who Are Prei Liik him so hard that the Sherman men now say that if the pressure is continued maj. Mckinley will announce himself and will speak for Sherman. Whatever Mckinley a real sentiments Are his old acquaintances and associates in Congress who Are acquainted with his accomplishments As a Sailor will never believe that he has taken such a step until the evidences Are really before their eyes. They know the major too Well. If it should get into such shape that his attitude is suspected by both parties he might possibly to compelled to show his hand. Unless he combines the qualities of forgiveness and forgetfulness lie can never bring himself to Hie support of Foraker. Memories of the Chicago convention of a he Aud Tho ballot Box contract of �?T89, on which his name appeared would deter him. The aggressiveness seems All to be on the part of the Foraker men and Tho Foraker organs. They charge Sherman with using Money and in the same breath charge him with penurious Ness. With apparent relish the fact is related that in a Campaign in Richland county not Long ago one of his neighbors called upon him to contribute to Tho Campaign fund and though in Sherman s own town Aud county he offered $5. Ii is also added by or. Fork or a supporters that Money cannot save Sherman this time and there is an intimation that thee Are willing to meet him on that ground. When a financial problem is hinted at they mysteriously speak of Gen. Asa Bushnell of Springfield of or. Firestone of Columbus and Gen. Alger of Michigan. It is said that the latter is aching for the Opportunity of doing something that will help defeat the old Ohio senator. It is the unanimous opinion of persons who have Given the situation intelligent consideration from a conservative standpoint that senator Sherman will succeed himself. The sentiment of the state is for him and it is too Strong for the republicans of the l legislature to run counter to even wore they so disposed and they Are not. Russell for president. New York world favourably reviews his successful career. New York Massachusetts has not Given a president to the United states since John Quincy Adams. Among the democracy of the Bay state there is a sentiment which has found some expression that the time has come for the Commonwealth to resume its old time distinction in the matter of presidents. Massachusetts Bas become a doubtful state. And there is one Democrat who has demonstrated his ability by the Mere Force of a Strong and attractive personality to secure in two successive years a plurality of the votes cast for governor. This is William Eustis Russell who will have attained by the the of january next the age of 36 required by the Constitution Iii a president of Tho United scats. Gov. Russells friends contend that in the event of his candidacy four votes would also be forthcoming from Rhode Island and four from new Hampshire. Or. Russell s Public career has been sufficiently remarkable to give some color to such claims made on his behalf. Or. Russells first election stirred up the leaders of Tho Republican party to a systematic Effort Quot to redeem this was Tho third time Rinco the outbreak of the civil War that a Democrat had been elected governor of Massachusetts hut none had been re elected nor As the republicans claimed could to. No Effort was spared in Tho Campaign of Tho present year to justify this boast. The Campaign Bogan Early on the Republican Bldr and was Moat hotly w aged. The loading Federal office holders of Tho state look the stump against Russell so did retired leaders of Tho party some of its most distinguished members of Congress and every orator who could be pressed into the service. The crisis was recognized As a Bravo one. For it w As proclaimed from every la publican platform that Tho electoral vote of Massachusetts would to in danger ii a democratic governor were re elected in 1891. 1 arty fealty was evoked to Avert such a catastrophe and race and religious prejudice was aroused to help Tho Republican cause in spite of a Campaign of almost frantic Effort to Compass his defeat Iii spite of Tho drawing out of 32.000 More votes than were recorded in 1890, gov. Russell was reelected by a plurality of Over 6000, having received nearly soon Mere votes than were Ever before cast for a democratic candidate in Massachusetts. In the discharge of Hia duties As governor or. Russell bos lived up to the highest Standard of impartiality and of rectitude. He has been a Frank and fearless exponent of democratic principles and Bas let no Opportunity pass to rebuke the perversion of free institutions from their proper end. A Man so straightforward so courageous and so conscientious As free from the imputation of being a prig As lie is from that of being a demagogue Iii whom modesty is As conspicuous As manliness and a chivalric generosity As strongly marked As either cannot fail to exercise a unique influence Over his fellow men it w As said of him a year ago that ills speaking tour of the stale attracted to him a affectionate admiration and wondering sympathy comparable Only to that Given to a dashing military Leader. No More Brilliant successes than his have bet u achieved in so Short a space by any Public Man of our time and whatever next year May have in Storo for him it May be asserted with entire Confidence that the in Amienee of William e. Russell of the development of the destiny of this Republic is certain to be a growing one. Democrats ousted. Baltimore. Md., Doc. republicans of the state Are rejoicing Over a decision reached today which places Calvert county in the Republican column Ami ousts several democrats from office. The contested cases were considered by chief Justice Briscoe and associate judges Brooks and Crane of Tho seventh judicial circuit. Tim Only Point considered by Tho court was whether or not the election held at St. Leonards. Calvert county was valid. The decision of the court places in office the following All republicans states attorney Frederick Gantt sheriff Elijah Brown county commissioners Charles g. Apr Knell George p. Ross and Joseph a. Hall. Tho democratic candidates for these offices to whom commissions Havo been issued by gov. Jackson and who have qualified will Havo to give up their places political Points. President Polk of Tho Farmers Alliance w. 8. Mcallister of Mississippi said Hie statement made by Mcallis Ter in regard to the falling off in the strength of the Alliance membership is untrue. Or. Polk says to has never expressed himself to any one As convinced that the charges against Maccune were True and ins relations with Maccune Are very cordial. Or. Polk says that All efforts of Mcallister and ids friends to hold a convention have been miserable failures. The South Carolina House of representatives yesterday passed a Bill to require Railroad companies operating in this state to furnish separate and equal accommodations for White and coloured passengers by a vote of 45 to 37. Representative Vvs egg the coloured member from Beaufort Iii his speech against the Bill said that politically the negro had yielded to the logic of the situs Tion. Quot pass this Hill and he will hesitate no longer. He believes that in this country there is no Middle ground Between a free Man and a slave. The coloured people desire peace with their White neighbors but they can accept none but an honorable peace. I warn the gentlemen who Are forcing this measure to the defeat of Roger q. Mills for the speaker ship has Given widespread sup Ort to the efforts of his admirers to elect him to the United state Senate. Gov. Hogg has stated that an extra session of the legislature will be called in March or april. T he election of a successor to John m. Reagan will be one of the duties of that body. Senator Chi Hen holds tile appointment from the governor and although a candidate for election by the legislature the friends of representative Mills Are confident of electing the Tariff Reform Champion. Expressions from All darts of the state favor or. Mills and his election is confidently predicted. Wax is the thing not Oil wherewith to treat your stained floor. A highly polished floor is effective. Beyond its artistic value it is economical. The secret is not hard to find. A tin of Wax and a Little system Are the essentials. Do not be induced to Uso Oil As less trouble. In reality it is More. Tho Oil will cling and every atom of dust with it no amount of polishing will carry off this evil effect of Oil. First have the floor washed with soda and hot water then apply the soft Wax lightly Aud evenly rubbing with the Gram. If you cannot afford a regular polisher. Have a Flatiron covered with an old piece of carpet a mop Bandle tied on to obviate stooping Aud that weight thoroughly rubbed on your floor will make it Shine like a Mirror. Once Overy Day or two instead of sweep ing have any dust taken up by a soft cloth wound round Tho Broom then Tho weight applied and this will last months. Should there be any scratches from Tho moving of furniture or stain of any sort there will to ample Wax in the Box to rub lightly Over the injured place. It will rub in so smooth and dry that the whitest garment will not he soiled in passing Over it and its decorative effect in the room is by no Means its least recommendation. She was not timid. Tho baby had rights and the Mother fought for them. Lynn la real it happened last night shortly after the Pullman train that arrives in Lynn about 6 a. Rn., left Portland.

I done to care who you Are nor whether you sleep a Wink or not. I know my business if this baby wants to howl All night she can howl an a but nothing More was necessary. The fat Man rolled out of his bunk half dressed. Suspenders hanging beneath his coat and grip Iii hand he fled to the smoker. Called Clay a the reference to Henry Clay As a Quot Blackleg a which precipitated the historic encounter was made by Randolph in the course of a Debato which began in Congress on feb. 16, 1825, on a Resolution about the propriety of discussing with open doors a communication Trout president John Quincy Adams on the prospective Assembly of american nations at Panama the invitation to mortal combat was issued forthwith Iii a Brief and Businesslike note from Clay then Secretary of state in spite of All the negotiations to persuade Randolph to say the t the term a a Blackleg d d not apply to or. Clay the proud virginian refused to yield further than to declare that Hie exact words in Bis speech which had caused Tho offence were puritanical diplomatic Blac legged triste this in a political primer. New Jersey and new York elect their i governors for Throe years Aud of the other 42 states 19 choose their governors for fou years. Fifty second session opens with great contest for introduce a i grist of business and fallen ire some committees not yet appointed and no work done. The proceeding of the two Hon a of Congress during the past week partake of Tho usual desultory routine character the Only feature lending excitement being Hie echoes of Tho severe inter party fight for speaker ship of the House report of which will he found in another column. In the Senate Tho opening was distinguished by notice of contest of seats of various members. The details follow. Senate assembles. Gov. Hill not present Brice objected to by Sherman. Washington dec. 7.�?tile Senate of the 52d Congress assembled with More than the customary amount of hand shaking and Hearty greeting among tile members on Tho floor. The galleries assigned to Tho Public were. Of course crowded the special Section set apart for Tho families of senators was filled and the diplomatic gallery had few vacant seats. Wreaths baskets and festoons of Flowers decorated nearly one halt of Tho desks. The new members were chiefly assigned to seats on the outskirts of the chamber. Senator Dixon of Rhode Island occupied or. Edmunds seat. Promptly at noon Tho vice president s Gavel Ell and the chaplain offered the open lug prayer. The vice president in a few Well Cheson words delivered in a clearly audible voice extended a Hearty Welcome to the senators assembled and Suid that this being the Day designated by Hie Constitution of the in Iii Tod states for the meeting of Congress lie declared Hie Senate now in session.

Harris of Tennessee said he desired to present tile Senate the credentials of Hon. John m. Davidson who was on the 22 i Day of september appointed by the governor of Florida to he a senator from the state of Florida to till a vacancy created Here or. Harris paused Ana Cor reeled himself by the a alleged laying Strong emphasis on the word a a alleged created by the termination of Tho term of Hon. Wilkinson Call. This appointment he said was attested by the governor and Secretary of state and attested by Tho great Seal of the state. These credentials presented a question As Between these the two claimants to the meat. His own opinion was that the proper course to be pursued was to refer the credentials of both claimants to Tho committee on Privi Leges and elections so that the question might be decided Iii the Light of a thorough investigation but for the present he would ask that both credentials lie on tile table today with the probability that to would tomorrow move a reference to the committee As soon As it should have been appointed. The credentials of or. Davidson having been read to the Senate. Or. George of Mississippi said that while he would not object to Hie suggestion of the senator from Tennessee lie might a Well say that after a careful examination of this Case he found there was no controversy As to the facts and therefore no necessity Tor an investigation by the committee As to the facts. As to the Law of the Case that had already received judicial determination by tins body so that there now Ramai Uei no question either of Law or fact upon which a decision of Hie Senate could he asked. The Equality of the states Iii this body ought not to to impaired for one single hour when there could to no question Al out which there could be any difference Between senators who had looked int the matter. However in deference to the senator from Tennessee or. Harris he should not object to the question going Over until tomorrow but then he should insist on Hie immediate swearing in of Tho legally elected senator or. Call. Or. Hoar of Massachusetts chairman of the committee on privileges and elections remarked that Hie statement of Tho governor of Florida in regard to this Case Hail been sent to him As Well As to Otner senators and he had carefully examined it. It presented simply a question As to the constitutionality of the present Law of con Gross As to Tho election of a senator. This was a question which had been before the Senate often before and had always been decided in one Way. Indeed lie was not aware that there was any difference of opinion among senators of the Point. If in the course of the discussion tomorrow it should turn out there was any question in the mind of any senator he would not object to the Case being referred to the committee but at present lie saw no reason Why the Senate should not dispose of it without a reference.
