It is the duty of every Republican voter to altund tlie primary election to-night aud help select the beat men for tbe various municipal offices. With tfood candidates tbe Republicans can win at tbe coming election, and none but good men should be nominated.

ANOTHER EXCITING DAY After a Turbulent Time Speaker Beetl Wins a Victory in tbo House. MINGLED HISSES AND OHEEBS The whisky trust has collapsed. Doubt less somebody watered tbe stock. Ba&nvm is tbe king of showmen. This accounts for bis royal reception in England. Much trouble in this world would never be found, if we only would not bunt for it. The demand for better roads in this State baa assumed the proportions of a general agitation. 8ocra.tes would be at his wit/a end if be were alive to-day and should set out to rind an honest cold wave.

Brazil has placed herself abreast of tbe most progressive nations by issuing a decree establishing civil marriages. Tbe new government is evidently alert to all tbat concerns the interests of the people. The Norristown Herald says, "Tbe ex-1 tension of the school savingB system is merely a question of time. Tbe School Directors of every district in the county 1 should take measures to secure tbe benefits of the plan for those whom they represent." It Is gratifying to learn from Maine tbat tbe ice crop "is ten to fifteen days ahead of 1889 and tbe ice is of better quality." This ib comfort for the consumers tbat are supplied with ice from Maine. But this is a large country; and other portions are in danger of being left more than ten or fifteen days behind Maine on tbe ice question. Only 416,738 immigrants arrived in this country from Europe last year, or nearly 100,000 less than in 1888. If, as there is some reason for supposing, tbe improvement in quality bas been commensurate with the decline in quantity, the country 'will regard the shrinkage whicb these figures indicate with entire equanimity. Of a certain class of Poies, Italians and Hungarians we bave bad more thnn our fill. Speaker Reed has made a decision �which will establish a precedent in Congress. It is a decision which should hive been made long ago. and had it been the work of Congress would have been facilitated to tbe interests of tbe country many Congresses back. Tbe decision is simply this: A contested election case was called up. The Democrats refrained from voting in order to break a quorum. Speaker Reed declared those who were present and not voting as present within tbe meaning of a quorum. Naturally, the Democrats objected, for under such a ruling it will always be possible to obtain a quorum and filibustering will become one of tbe lost arts. _ Sale of u Fur in. ,f. G.

The facts which bave transpired during tbe last few days have transpired in tbe presence of this House, aud of a verj large auditory. No man can describe tbe action of tbe occupant of this chair, which will endure, unless that description ho truthful. [Republican applause.] A man, much more famous than any in this hall, said many years ago that nobody could write him down but himself. No man can talk any member of this House down except himself. [Republican laughter.] Whatever has been done bas been done in tbo J face of the world, and is subject to its discriminating judgment. The proceedings of this House, so far as the Chair is concerned, have been orderly, [ Democratic hisses] suitable in conformity to the rules of parliamentary law, [renewed Democratic hisses] and the refusal of the Chair to entertain a motion to adjourn at this juncture is strictly in accordance therewith. [Democratic groans.J There is no possibility by which orderly methods of parliamentary procedure can bo used to stop legislation. action, sot obstruction. "The object of a parliamentary body is action and not stopp ige of action. Hence when any member or set of members undertake to oppose the orderly progress of business, even by the use of ordinarily recognized parliamentary motions, it >s ' tbe right of the majority to refuse to have those motions entertained, and to cause the public business to proceed. I Primarily, the organ of the House is the man elected to the Speakership. It is his duty in a clear case, recognizing the situation, to endeavor to carry out the wishes and desires of tbo majority of the body which bo represents. Whenever it; becomes apparent that the ordinary, proper parliamentary motions aie being used solely for the purpose of delay and obstruction when the members break overan unprecedented rule, (correciiijg , himself) break over a rule. [Applause and laughter on Democratic side]. the CiiAIIt's plain duty. '*In regard (continued the Speaker, calmly) to the reading of the journal, when a gentleman steps down to the front amid the applause of bis associates aod announces tbat he intends to make opposiiion in every direction, it becomes apparent to the House and community what is hi.s purpose. It is then the duty ol the occupant of the Speaker's chair to take under parliamentary law the proper course in regard to such matter; and in order that there may not be any misunderstanding as to whether or not it is the wish and desire of. tbe majority of tbe House, apparent as it J seems to be, or tbe question of an appeal from the refusal of the Chair toeuteitniuj the motion,wiil be presented tothe Housf\" a pertinent answer.
