Wbkh the election for Speaker up in the Fifty second Congress, will be no absence of a Quorum. Neablt every Ohio Republican exchange baa but one opinion about McKin. ley, "Next Govcraor of Ohio," say all of there. Is ft negro uprising at Fairmouat, Ind four darkies were killed. It is queer that in almost all ''negro uprisings" the blacks are the ones that lie down to die. Web Flankagak, of Republican National Convention fame, knows what be is io Texas for. He ran for Governor oo tbe Republican ticket and (rot whipped by 80,000 majority. If anybody has any idea that David B Hill is sot supreme "boss" of tbe Demo oralio party of tba State of New York, let him watch events in reference to the United States Senatorsbip. We have all tad enough of politics lately; soma of ua more tban enongb, witboat fiuuing' takers for the surplus. Now let ua drop tbia subject and try to forget our disappointments in a close attention to business. Victoria, B. C, has retaliated on tbe McKinley Tariff by taxing every American flrnmmer $100 a year. The drummers propose to retaliate on Victoria by boycotting the town, and it looks as if the drummers rather bad tbe best of it. Coffee, whose odor baa been considered bo delightful, is getting into bad odur. Tbey make brandy of Ihe coffeo bean in Mexico, r.nd New England physicians have pronouooed the malady of an insane patient to be clearly doe to coffee drinking. It mast have been boarding house coffee. Wits the true scientific instinct, Dr. Koch declines all emoluments and honors until bis supposed disaovery shall have made good its claim to a permanent place in medical science. It does seem a little strange that all these honors should be heaped on him before permanent cures have been effected. Dekxark Is tbe butter factory of Europe, and, as a result, tbe farmers there are about tbe most prosperous of any Dn the oontinent. Their great success is said to be owing to the fact that the farmers' daughters devote themselves enthusiastically to tbe oare of tbe dairy. The newest dairy machinery has breo introduced and tbe largest percentage of butter, as well as tbe beat quality, is tbe result. In this country it i� a matter of donbt whether butter making pays the farmer at all. Tbe secret of eoscess seemB to lie in tbe intelligence and enthusiasm with which farmers go at this work. Gould and the TJ. F. New York, Nov. 12.-Mr. George Gould refused to talk this morning with regard to the report tbat bis father, Mr. Jay Gould, has secured control of tbe Union Paoiflc Railroad.

A Run on the Tforlh River National Bank Results la That Institution CIoiloc Its Doors, But the Amount Involved Small and Will B� Eajlly Met-Secretarv Wjndoio Comes to the Belcne Acaln. Navf Your, Nov. 12.-The stock market to-day showed materially a better feeling both in the street and outside, and there was a most gratifying confidence displayed that not only shows tbat the worst is over, but that the improvement would be quick and sharp. The action of tbe clearing bouse committee in coming to tbe relief of tbe banks in difficulty was tbe means of restoring the confidence of many, while the improvement in tbe situation abroad was also a powerful factor to tbat end. Not only were active stocks mncb higher all day long but Inactive specials, which yesterday oould not find buyers at any price, to-day were taken at constantly advancing figures, and a heavy slump in those shares was in a great measure made np. a run closes a bask. Tbe North River bank closed its doors this afternoon, the State Bank Examiner taking charge of its affairs. The bank is a member of ibe Clearing House. It operates under a state obarter granted in 1841.

This is one of tbe banks which bad to be helped oat by tbe Clearing Bouse yesterday. It loaned too much money, according to tbe atatemeut of lbe oasbiBr. a small AXOVST isvolvkd. The amount involved, Vice President Brokaws said to-night, was less than $60,000. Its dealings were mainly with produce merchants of Greenwich strci't and vicinity. The cause of this present difficulty is Bimply light money. On account of the mention of tbe North River bank as one of those assisted at tbe Clearing Bouse yesterday, the depositors started a quiet but steady run on it tbis morning. Tbe bank stood out until 2:30, when its ready money was exhausted and it had to close its doors. It did an average business of $3,000,000. No statement can be made before morning, when tbe bank may resume. kot 80 bad as supposed.

Tbe Harrisburg correspondent to tbe Hazleton flnin Speaker relate* the follow-ing humorous incident in referenoe to tbe late oampaign in Dauphin coanty and the part tbe phonograph took iu electing Bam uel Keller to the sheriffalty: "Sam Keller, a well-known conductor of the Northern Central Railway, one wbo is known by nearly everybody from this' city to Renovo, was eleoted Sheriff of Dauphin county last week. Three years ago Hani was defeated for tbe same office but notjius daunted he again asked for tbe nomination, promising to wipe tbe floor with bis opponent no matter who be might bo. That be did successfully, befog elected by more than 700 majority, being tbe first Democratic Sheriff eleoted in Dauphin county in mauy years. There is a funny incident connected with Sam Keller's oampaign, wbiob may possibly introduce the phonograph into, and give it a high place in future politics. At a place called Gratz, in tbia county, ia held an agricultural fair each year which lasts about five days. The fair is to tbst section what tbe AUentown fair is to tbe Lehigh valley, and large crowd* attend it daily. At tbe fair were a couple of youug men exhibiting the phonograph, and tbe country people were In raptures over the novel machine and crowded each other for an opportunity to bear bow wonderfully it reproduoof} evorf thing, Harry Reynolds, a well known character of tbis eonsty, and wbo is known aa "Bunco Harry," bad a bright idea ooma into bis mind, and be called to one side one of tbe young men wbo operated the mschiae. After a few minntea' conversation with him tbe operator gathered up the phonograph and stepped into a tent with Harry  In a short time Harry, who has a pretty good gift of gab, delivered to the phonograph aa excellent little speech in bebalf of Sam Keller for High Sheriff of Dauphin county. The machine was put on exhibition again, and as the youug farmers and country folk in general put the tubes in their ears they heard the wonderful ma-obine extolling tbe virtues of Dam Keller and begging ot every honest citizen to stand by bim on election day, as be was the cboioe of tbe people. The news spread around tbe country about tbe wonderful talking machine that was delivering speeches for Sam Keller, aDd every one who attended the fair for the week had to hear itand all were impressed with tbe idea that Keller was a great man. 'BuDCo"Harry's scheme resulted in giving Keller a great majority in tbat sectioned in the town of Gratz, wbere tbe fair was held, only three little votes were oast against him. TRAMIRM ft A DAY.

It is only within a year or two that California prunes have been offered for Eastern consumption. But so popular bave tbey beoome with housewives tbat a struggle is goiog on between California and France for the American market. So warm has become the contest tbat, it is alleged, the wily Frenchmau now Bends to ua the product of bis orchards put up In tbe most attraotivo packages, which bear all tbe appearance of fancy brands of the genuine California article. It is a cheering thought that European manufacturers aro beginning to find it necessary to mark their goods with an American brand in order to make tbem sell among Americans. Too long has it been thought necessary for Americana to brand their goods with a foreign label. If by-and-by French wine growers aud uilk weavers will find the Name difficulty in meeting tbo American market, the time will surely come when thorough belief in Ameriuan products possesses American minds. The Emperor William is said to have onoe remarked: "I drink only German wines," If Americans would etiok to this polioy and nse no foreign goods when American were) available, we should toon hear tbe last of tbe tariff question.
