The bent evidence that wo have a navy {a fosnd in tbe faot that Secretary Tracy has advertised for 80,000 pounds of tctacco. TnE growing strength of the farmers independent polttioal movement iu South Carolina ia oaueiog more aud more uneasiness and alarm among the Bourbons of that State. The plans have been matured for the forthcoming Southeastern trip of the dele gates to tbe Congress of tbe Three Americas. On April 18tb they will leave Washington, returning thereto, if the schedule 1b tally carried out, on May 10. Investigation up to the present date shows that Ardner, tbe defaulting Democratic Treasurer of Maryland, stole (100,-000, and the experts haven't got through tbe books yet, either. Evidently that Ardner aimed at a high mark. Major McKinley, of the Ways and Means Committee, bas appointed Mr. Boutelle, of Maine, as, chairman of the sub-eotBroittee to eoi>slder tbe Peters bill prohibiting tbe adulteration of lager beer, and imposing a special tax upon tbe man-  ufaoture and the sale of tbe adulterated article. Pottbtowk has now given the school savings bank system * three month's trial. Daring that period 1,200 out of tbe 1,883 enrolled scholars have become depositors and tbe amount of cash to their credit b> 4,096.38. The deposits are received weekly and keep up remarkably well, those for the third month having been 1,259 70. The plan seems to be a complete success. Pnomsccocs dueling is to be prohibit, ed in the German army, but that a proper: spirit may be kept up, it bas been decided that when any high blooded military man conceives himself to have been wronged in any way by a brother officer, a council of brothers, men of honor, shall be called to which all the oiranmstances shall be re-ferreed, and if the council decides a proper justification tbe duel shall be allowed. Tbe Williamsport liepubluan published yesterday a'really excellent picture of Rev. John Keeper, rector of the St. Bonifaoius Church of that city, wbo celebrated tbe 25th anniversary of his ordination. This in connection with a complete story of tbe observance printed from clear, handsome type, on fair paper with good ink makes it a number worth preserving. The Be-pu&Ucan has bad a move on for some time and ranks among tbe best of our exchanges. It bas become a regular thing for several bills to find their way into Congress every session providing for the eleotlon of Senators by a vote of the people. Tbe House Judiciary Committee last week con. sidered several of these bills. The matter was referred to a sab-oommittee and some action with regard to tbe matter will be taken later on. It seems like a waste of time to consider such a measure. - It could never pass the Senate, even though it was able to ran the gauntlet of tbe House. Mb. Geo. K. McCbea, one of Renovo's most energetic and highly esteemed busl nesti men, is a prominent candidate for Associate Judge, to fill the vacancy caused by .lodge Caeenatt's appointment as postmaster at Renovo. Mr. McCrea is we!) qualified to 911 tbe position and his aotive services to tbe Republican party of Clinton county is deserving of recognition. We hope that Governor Beaver will appoint * Mr. McCrea and thus confer an honor upon a worthy citizen and a true Republican. Alfred Andrews' Prayor. Tbe following is tbe prayer made by Alfred Andrews on the scaffold yesterday, just before tbe noose was adjusted about bis neck: I trust I may meet tbe blessed girl who*) life I have stolen Irom the world. May i meet ber In .Haven and clasp her bands and say "I know you." I am willing to suffer the penalty of the offense I nave commuted, and since I bave committed It 1 am ready to say that I desire to suffer the punishment that awaits zae, and I hope that the friend* I see around me here to-day may meet with me around the throne of Heaven, now we will repeat tbe Iamu's prayer. - ..

BUSY BAY FOR THE HAHGM1M Bartholomew, the Easton Murderer, Corses With His Last Breath. REFUSES PEAYERS IN HIS BEHALF And The Ministers Become Discouraged- Prefers Gin to SunpHcatUne-TU Hardened Wretch Wss Without a Htioggle -The. Bunting; of ZacbmrtaH Taylor and Charles Carter. Easton, April 9.-William H. Bartholomew was hanged here this morning for the murder of Aaron W. Dilliard. The drop fell at 10.-81J, and in fifteen minutes be was pronounced dead. Rtv. Y. O. Btom, Rev. J. W. Maybrey, and a clergyman from Allentown, called on Bartholomew last night, expecting that, as his time was short, they could induce him to make a confession, repent, and join tbem in prayer. Tbe prisoner told tbem they oould pray all night if they so desired, but not for bim. After a trial of two hours they gave op and left. Bartholomew slept two hours during tbe night, spending the rest of tbe time smoking cigars and talking to his guards and the reporters. He was in a good humor all night, and laughed and joked with those about him. Warden Walton called at 5 o'clock this morning. Bartholomew was then sweeping the floor of bis cell, and said he wanted to bave it nice and cli an before the ladles came. wouldn't eat art bbeakfabt. Wben asked what be wanted for breakfast be replied: "I don't want any breakfast. I am fnll enough now." Afterward he said be would eat, provided be was given a drink of gin so long (pointing to his arm below tbe elbow.) He was then asked if be was ready to put on his naw black suit, and he replied: "Too can keep it; I don't want it. This prison suit and check shirt are good enough to hang in. I hope it will either rain pitchforks during the execution or a cyclone come and blow jail and everybody in it to eheol. If these ministers would only bring me some good gin Instead of bothering me with their prayers, we would get along better." TBE MINIiTKBB DISCOUBAGED. Bartholomew kept his promise made early this morning that be would not wear tbe black suit purchased for him to wear during his execution, and that he would not eat bis breakfast. Four ministers entered his cell at 9 o'clock and remained with him with the blind doors closed until 1020. During the religious exercises he remained quiet and bad little to say. When the ministers began to pray be told them they sbonld not pray for him; that it would do no good. TurniDg to Rev. Dr. Kurtz, of Allentown, he said, "As sure as there is a God in Heaven, I am as innocent of the shooting as you are." At 10:12 Rev. Hess came from tbe cell and said it was no use; the ministers could do nothing with him. At 10:25 the Sheriff read the death warrant and asked Bartholomew if he was ready, "Yes, long ago," replied Bartholomew. Icstead of showing Bgbt, as be had promised, Bartholomew walked quietly to the scaffold and ascended the steps apparently unconcerned.^ swears OK TBS scaffold. He then took his position on the trap, gazed at the thousand spectators below. He then watched the movements of the sheriff while shackling biro, and when everything was iu readiness said in German: "I bave nothing to say, except that I am innocent. Where is Detective Johnson? He ought to be bung, too. Where's the--(referring to Mrs. Dilliard). She ought to be here, too." Bartholomew then began to awear and curse bis accusers. Then followed a streak of blasphemy and "gooo-by, doctor," and tbe drop fell. A half minute later a slight twitohing was n oticeable, and all was over, his neck having been broken. After tbe body bad been lowered it was attired in the black suit which be had refused to wear, placed in a rosewood coffin, and sent to Catasa-qua, from which place it will be taken by wagon to tbe home of bis family, at Weaversville, where tho funeral will take place next Sunday.

Washington Cor. of Pittsburg Dispatch. Senator Teller told me last night how he lost (900,000. The story made my eyes bulge out, but the Senator related it in the same cool, metallic tones in which be talks about tbe weather. Said he: It was some years ago in Leadvillethat I met one day upon the streets a friend of mine, wbo asked me to go in with him and his partner and buy the Robert E. Lee mine, The mine had been in the courts, bat tbe question of its title had been settled, and It was only necessary to have $90,000 to pay off its indebtedness. I asked how muoh it would take for me to come in. He replied that it would take (45,000 and this would give me a one third interest. 'But' said I, raising my hands ic holy terror, 'I haven't got tbe money, and would hate to risk it if I had.' 'Oh,' said he, 'you run no risk. We j have ninety days in which topay this (90,-000, and we will work it out of the mine in that time. Yon need not put up a cent, and we will pay your $45,000 out of the niine, and in case the mine doesn't pan ontatonce Ben, my partner, and I will put up the money for you.' "I said I would consider the matter, but I did not think I wanted it. For the next two days that man hung around me and begged me to take tbe third interest in tbe mine. He told me he oould sell it for (45,000 cash to another man, but he would rather take mo in for nothing. "I held out and at the end of two days he sold tbe interest to the other party. Shortly alter this I heard that tbe mice was paying, and about two years lator I met Ben, my friend's partner, ia tbe Windsor Hotel at Denver and we got to talking about mining property. 'You made a great mistake, Mr. Teller,' said he, 'in not going into the Robert E. Lee with us.' "Yes, I know it,' said I, "and I wonder just how much of a mistake I did make? Suppose you tell me.' "Well, said ho again, 'we got your (45,-000 out of tbe mine in less than three mon ths and you would not have had to pay a cent on it. Tho man who took your plaoe atuok to us, and be cleared within twoyears just (900,000. 'I must have looked a little surprised, for the man said: "Well, Mr. Teller you wish you had Riue in.' '1 don't know,' replied I, 'Provideuce runs tuehe thine?. Uis own way. I have two boys, and tbey had better make their own way through the world thau be pampered with tbe inheritance of a millionaire. Perhaps on tbe whole it is as well as it Is."

Many men have become insane through their efforts to perfect a machine that would furnish Its own motive poweay but thus far perpetual motion bas never been* discovered. Sometting very near to perpetual motion however may be seen at tbe house of Mrs. Dunn on West Churcb street, where Mr. Freman Batcheler now resides. It is simply a wooden ring on an ordinary window ourtain pole, and for several weeks the ring has kept up a eon* atant motion backwards and forwards, at tbe rate of about forty strokes per minute. Were it not for the fact that a steam heat radiator is near by, tbe motion of the ring would appear mysterious. "Ho. ���, aim. Her."

These are mauy women wbo contend that men causa all tbeir trouble. But why marry such men? A g'Wd man rarely turns out badly if he secures a good wife. It is not often tbe oase where an honest, indu8trioue,weU-to-do young man becomes lazy and worthless after marrying a good, sensible woman. If women want good husbands they must select good men, treat them well and respect tbem when tbey get them. At present young ladies are apt to judge too much by appearances- good clothes, jewelry, etc. Tbe prettiest aud best dressed young men do not always make tbe best husbands. Nor tbe most flashily-dressed, painted and powdered young ladies make tbe best wives. It is character, good training; aqd common aenae tbat makes good men and women.
