Qdker man cx Speaker Carlisle. A little over a jear at� be was coaiphiu.u'g that thore was too oiuch surplus iu the Treasury. Now be complains that there Is not enough surplus. Mr. Carlisle, it seems, is determined never to bo satisfied. Judge Aon'EW is advised by .be oculist, whom be bas consulted, tb.it tbe trouble with his eyes is inctpieut oataraat, but that by refraining from using them much, it may not iuerease to such an extent as to deprive bin. uf the moderate unjtiyumnt of bis sight. Cable de?-pitched from Australia tell of Hoods tbat prevail there, doing much damuee. 1� one oily the losses *av� estimated at a milliou and a half. It in something of a coincidence that great floods should prevail ou opposite sides of the globe at tbe same moment. One by one the shaky vessels of our old navy are discarded. It having been decided by experts that the repairs needed to put tho United States steamer Ossipee in seaworthy condition would take more than 20 per cent, of her cost, she will be con* demued acd ber name will be erased from the navy list. One hundred and twenty walnut trees at Delphi, led., were recently sold for $10,000. It is to be hoped that one hundred and twenty other trees were plauted in their place. But this feet bas this significance. If people will not pUut trees because tbe -public interests demand Bo doing, selfishness should spur them on. Trees have a commercial value, and require nothing but time to raise them. Tele, Philadelphia Record has just added to its establishment three new Hoo perfecting presses capable of priutiog 144,000 copies an hour. Tbe large and constantly increasing circulation made this necessary and all demands tor this xcelltmt newspaper can now bo promptly mot. The Record has the largest daily circulation of any newspaper in Pennsylvania and is one of the newsiest aid ablest published any where. The Government persecutions of tbe Jews in Russia Beem to have their due influence on all classes of the population, so that when the champion Canadian skater, Louis Kubenstein, went over there to contend in the great skating contest, be bad bard woik to Be cure a place in tbe races. He turned tbe tables on the narrow minded Muscovites by beating their vaunted champions with ease and carried off two gold medals. Thinks Defeat U Certain. The Tyrone correspondent of the Al-toona Times, of the 18th .oat, Bays: Hon. William A. Wallace was in town yesterday for a short time between trains. Some people have an idea that be is anxious to get the Democratic nomination for Governor, but in this ibey are mistaken. In a conversation with us lasting fifteen minutes we are led to believe that1 Mr. Wallace is not putting forth a single effort to capture delegates to tbe State, Convention. He says no man need covet the honor, for if successful in getting the com)Dai ion bard work stares him iu the face, wifh chance* (or d�ft�f*t; almost certain VV'Ljie be doti'r, wane, tho Domination.   it would bp tendered tu him with any degree of unanimity he would no doubt accept its responsibilities and put bis best energies into the campaign. He left for Philadelphia on Day Express, where be will meet some of the leaders of the party for consultation. She Evidently Knew. Jones1 wife was n�t a very bright woman but Hhe sometimes said things wb ch was worthy of a wit. One day after doing or saying something silly, ber husband snapped out: "Well, you are a little tbe worst I ever �aw.11 "Why, what's the matter now? Have I done anythiog wrong?" "I Bhould say so. You don't know tbe difference between a horse and a donkey, I don't believe," "I didn't say you were a horse, did I?" she replied meekly, and Jones said no more. A Heavy Snow Sturm. One of tbe snow storms, which was looked for so Anxiously last winter but never came, arrived to-day. The storm was unexpected, yesterday being beautiful spring weather with cloudless skies. At 1 o'clock this afternoon a telephone ''message from Cteartietd to the Expkkss stated that tbe snow at that place was over a foot deep and still falling. At that hour tbe beow id this city was a boot 6 inches deep. THE NEW TARIFF BILL The Reduction In the Bevenne Will Abont TweDty Million Dollars Bo THE LUMBEB SCHEDULE BEDTJOED The Tax on Tobacco Material Modified, Bat Clear* and Clg�r*tt�* Not Affected Tbe ftnty on Steel IUtlfl lUduced four Dollars* Ton, ltut tbe Tin FUt* Industry Will b� Boomed. Washington, March 18.- The Republican members of the Ways aud Means Committer have practically agreed upon every point uf division on tbe tariff schedules and the reductions to be made from tbe internal revenue, and will present the bill to the full committee for its consideration before the end of the week. Tbe clauses relating to carpet, wools, Mexican lead, ores and one or two other articles have not yet been Jiually and definitely passed upon, and while the bill is not absolutely completed, aDd will of course be subjected to revision, it is behoved to be substantially finished so far as the majority of tbe committee is con-cere ed. INTERNAL REVENUE REDUCTION. The Internal Revenue features of the bill are as follows: The entire abolition of all special taxes upon dealers of alt kinds, commonly known as licenses. Tbe taxes upon snuff will bo repealed. Farmers and planters growing tobacco will have the liberty to sell to whosesoever tbey please without restraint in tbe same manner as any farmer can do tbe same as of another of the products of his land. The tax upon manufactured tobacco will be reduced fro"i 8 cents to 4 cents a pound. Cigars, cheroots and cigarettes will carry the same tax as is imposed under the present law. Alcohol need in tbe arts is free under substantially tbe same restrictions as are prescribed in the Senate bill. The reductions in revenue from these sources will be in round numbers between 115,000,000 and >19,000,000. THE TARIFF SCHKDULES. Tho following are the principal provisions in tbe tariff schedules: The chemicals schedule contains but few changes from tbe existing law. There are some reductions and no advances in duty, and it is believed that tbe duties of this schedule will be found below tbe Senate schedule. Tbe earthenware and glassware schedules remain substantially as in tbe existing law. There are a number of important changes in the metal schedule. Existing rates are maintained on iron ore and pig iron. Barb wire for fencing is made dutiable at 6,10 cents a pound, which is below the duty upon that kind of iron entering into other uses. Beams, girders and structural iron is reduced from 1 1-4 to G.10 cents a pound, whioh is a reduction below that of the Senate. Kail way iron is reduced to 6.10 cents a piund, the present rate being 917 a ton, a reduction of about 94 a ton, and a reduction in the rate fixtjd by the Senate bill. STEEL RAILS REDUCED. The duty ou steel rails ib reduced 94 a ton. The duty ou tin plate hiw been increased to 23-10 eeuts a pound. Pig tin } remains free. It is believed that with this encouragement our tin plate will be manufactured in tbis country. Already we make tbe sheet iron and sheet steel which is 95 per cent, of the tin plate and with tbe assurance that there is tii in tbe Bluok Hills, it is thought, will cause a great industry to Rpriag up. There is an increase in tbe duty upon pocket cutlery, which tho com3iiU**e justify upon tho ground of the deri-reimed cjiadiuou ot that iudustry in the United States and the sharp and ruinous competition tbat has already been felt from Odrnuoy. Quo barrels are pUced upon the free list. Hand sewing needles are also placed upon the free list. The new metal, aluminum, is given a designation for the fiiBt time under "Metals and Manufactures Thereof," and is made dutiable at 33 per cent, advalorem. LUMBER DUTIES REDUCED. Iu the lumber schedule the duty ou sawed boards, planks and uniahed lumber is reduced 50 percent, from the pres ent rate. There is a special provision inserted that Id ease Canada lays an export duty upon lumber then tbe duties shall be collected according to tbe rates under tho existing law. The duty on Sumatra tobacco is increased to 92 per pound. There is an increase generally all along tbe entire list in tbe duties upon agricultural products. The duty upon barley is raised to 30 cents per bushel, bops to 15 cents per pound, buckwheat to 15 cent* per bushel, macaroni and vermioelta 2 cents a pound, oats lOoeuls a bushel. Tbe duty on agricultural seeds is increased. The duty on rice is reduced from 2{ cents a pound, rice, flour and rice meal from 1 cent t'.> 2 cents a pound, and broken rice to $ ceut a pound. Hatter sad substitutes therefore have tbo duty increased to 6 cents a pouod, Tbe duty on eggs is raised to 5 cents a dozen, potatoes to 25 cents a bushel. Hides whioh are now ou thp free list ar� made dutiable at IJ cents a pound. Thi-ro is a small increase in the duty upon fruits, oranges and lemon** iu packages of 1{ cubic feet or less, 25 cents per pttckage. Ou packages exceeding Ij and not exceeding 2) cubic feet, 50 ceuts a package. Raisins 2� cents a pound. Spirits, wines and other beverages have been left as found in the existing laws. Sj.lt also bas uot been touched. COTTON AND WuOL. Cotton manufactures are left substantially as in tho Senate bill. Jute, man ill a and Bisal grass are put upon the free list as is wool. A reduction is made in the duty on binding twine. In the wool schedule, wools of the first olass, known as clothing wools, IX eeus a pound; wools of the second class, known as combing woo1*, 12 cents; carpet wools valued at 12 cents or less 3J cents a pouud, valued at over 12 cents and S cents a pound. This is a reduction of � cent a pound from the Senate bill, and an increase of H cents from the present law. It is believed, however, that the definitions aud classifications and restrictions provided for will make this duty even more valuable to the wool growers tban the duty fixed by tho Senate bill. In tbe Mills bill wool was put on tbo free list, and the duty given to tbe manufacturer of woolen fabrics was from 40 to 45 per cent. As tbis bill makes wool dutiable it gives a compensation to tbe manufacturers for tbe duty imposed upon wool. The difference between tbe duty given the manufacturers by the Mills bill and the proposed measure is only 10 per cent., after giving to tho manufacturers a compensating duty for the duty upon wool, yarn and clothes are made duitable at forty per cent, advalorem. Additional woolen goods at 50 per cent., and ready made clothing at sixty per cent. The carpet schedule has uot been definitely arranged. It is understood, although there is some division in the committee upon the subject that for the encouragement oi silk culture in the United States a duty will be recommended upon raw silk. SUOAH AND MOLASSES. There is a cut in duties upon sugar of from 50 to 00 per cent. Molasses is made dutiable at 25 percent, advalorem, the present rate being specific. This is a considerable reduction. The committee bas not yet settled what duties shall be levied upou lead ores, this being one of the few matters yet to bo definitely passed upon. It is estimated by the framers of the bill that it will produce a revenue above 960,-000,000. Forty llouri Devotion. Tho Renovo A'ews of yesterday says: Revs. Power and Scibert of Look Haven, arrived iu Ilenovo last evening to assist Rev. Qormley in conducting the forty hours devotion, whioh are still in progress at Sr. Joseph's Catholic Church. Rev.

A Rash of Vr*l**ht� Auy person who will pay a visit to the junction of the Philadelphia and Erie and Bald Eaglo Valley Railroads in this city wilt be convinced that there is an unusually large amount of freight passing over those roads at the present time.
