PRICE-TWO CENTS EVENING EXPRESS KINSLOK BROTUKKS---PUBLISHERS CURRENT COMMENT. Republicans Bhould not (ail to be registered before September 4, and thus secure the right to vote in November. Fobeign competitois of Amerioan manu-faoturos continue to be the most vigorous opponents of the McKinley Tariff bill. Maine and California olasp hands aoross the oontinent. California Republicans heartily endorse Speaker Reed in their State convention and oheer enthusiastically when his name iB mentioned, and the whole Republican party eohoeB the cheer. If the Demooratio newspapers of the United States devoted half as muoli time and energy to scouring honest elections in Southern States that tbey do to defeat the proposed Federal Election Law, there would be no necessity for that measure; This phase of the question never soerr.s to have ocourred to them. Since the Edmunds law has restricted the practice of polygamy in Utah, the Sainti have been seeking new fields for the praotice of their peculiar doctrines. Many of thorn have gone to Canada, where their ways are very objectionable to the poople, who speak of driving them out of the country if the government does not prohibit their further inroads. The Franklin Repository suggests that .ex-Governor Pattison be invited to Cham-bersburg to explain why be vetoed the bill giving $50 for the burial of impoverished old soldiers and sailors. This bill was passed over Governor Pattison'e veto, and the Repository siys that under it sixty old soldiers of Franklin county have been given decent burial whose bodies otherwise would have gone to the potter's field. Those who during the summer season are oarefnlly noting the sanitary condition of Florida in anticipation of a winter visit will learn with pleasure, no doubt, that the health of the State generally has been uniformly good, and that there is nothing to indicate a changt. This is the statement of the State Board of health, and in the absence of contradiction from any source it should be accepted as truthful. There are to-day about 1,000 beet sugar factories in operation in the different countries of Europe and all of them seem to be working with satisfactory profits. In the United States, where the consumption of sugar per capita is larger than in any other country in the world except England, there are only two or three such factories in operation. Hay we not hope that under the system of bonnties proposed by the MoKinley tariff bill, we may see this number augmented many fold and a great agricultural industry placed on a permanent basis.
