The mau who cau pay his poll-Hx and doesn't, should not have a vote. Every Republican should see that his tarces are paid before October 1. Every day emphasises tho idea that 'bis is an off year for Democrats only. When Thomas 13. Reed makes a speech on the stump ho always has a quorum. Oysters live to be twelve- to fifteen years old. It is strange how few of them die young. Tnx latest duet by Congressmen Vanx and Kerr relates pathetically how they "weren't in it." Passed by the Senate and Now Ready for the Presidents Approval Tni; melancholy days are upon us, when the coal man begins to wear a sweet smile and good clot hes. If Farmer P.utisou doesn't keep a lookout for his fences ho will find that Farmer Black has stolen his post, holes. There was an explosion in tho oil country on Friday night. Sir. Emery was the exploder, cxplodce and exploded. Voter, remember that October -1 is the last day on which to pay yonr '� ixes, if yon wish to enjoy tho right of suffrage this year. Mit. PatiihOn need not have his shoes half soled to walk up Capitol Hiil to bo inaugurated Governor. The other fellow will ride there. VIGOROUS CLOSING SPEECHES MADE Mr. Cleveland is said to be In excellent health. It is encouraging to know that his retirement agrees with him as woll.as with the people. The anti-lottery law has not been slow in haviug its good effect. Soveral unscrupulous publishers have already been arretted under its provisions. Col. Wattkkson has grave fea:b for the future of tho Republican party. It likely that ho also has a grave fear -)f tho Republican party of tho present. Mk. Pattjsc-v evidently doesn't have much respect for the voluntcir firemen.

Senator CmiIUIo Makes the Final Effort in Opposition to the Measure, and Senntor Aldrich Knd� the l>ubate for the Republicans- I*roceeiiliifjs of the Honse -Other NfiWH. WA9uixiiTO>", Sept. oO.-Senator Carlisle Bpofco for nearly threo hours in opposition to the tariff conference report, and at tho close of his speech some of hisstate-monts and figures were challenged by Son-&tor Aldrich. Allisou also criticised several of Carlisle's statements, and domed their accuracy. Several other short addresses were made, and then Aldrich took the floor to make the closing speech. It was a general defence of the Tariff bill. Iu reply to questions by Gorman he stated that tho Conference bill reduces tho revenue about $G,~S0,000 below tho amount that the Senate bill would reduce it. The priuoipal reduction made in tho conference was on the tobacco and on special taxes for retail dealers. He added that tho rate of taxatiou on goods imported iu 1SSS was percent., and that the rate under the oouferouco bill would he -J4 2U as against GO per cent, asserted by Carlisle. At the conclusion of Aid rich's remarks tho Senate proceeded to vote on the conference report. The first break was made in party Hues, when Poddock voted no. Pottigrew and Plumb also voted with the Democrats against the report. The vote rcsultod, yeas 33, nays 27. Tho Tariff bill uoeds now only the signatures of tho presiding officers of both House and the President to become a law. The House resolution to correct the enrollment of the Tarifl bill was agreed to. Adjourned. ix the iioc3e. The Houso ou motion of McKinloy passed the concurrent, resolution dirootiug tho clerk of the Houso to number consecutively the paragraphs of enrolled tariff bill. This is to correct certain unimportant errors. Some other routiuo business was transacted. Throughout the aftarnoon was manifested in tbo Houso every appearance of an early dissolution of Congress. Members congregated in tho space in front of the Speaker's desk and earnestly sought for recognition. Such as were recoguizsd had (for the most part) only private bills to bo considered. Holmau, of ludiana, had a bill of a constituent, for the recovery of $200 for a horse taken by tb.oUnu.edSt a tea troops during the war. He immediately became a target for the vocal slings and sarcasm of members who had suffered from hia numerous objections, but tbo discussion was entirely good uatured and his bill was permitted to be passed. Tho House finally discoverin g itself without a quorum, adjourned. J it r beau-"5lt*rIIcht." The celebrated little French comedienne, Miss Veruoua Jarbcau, will be seen at the Opera House Monday evening next in her successful musical comedy, "SUr-light," described on the playbills very aptly as a dramatic piece of bric-a brae. It was axpicssly written for Miss Jarboau's debut as a star. The plot describes a search for a prima donna made by a inusi-'criiiik" anxious to become an operatic manager. He discovers a shepherdess Willi a voice, brings the mstic singer to America, and she makes her appearance at a fashionable reception, where the various guests assist her at a rehearsal. The charm of "Starlight" is the bevy of pretty girls who are to bo seen in it. Miss Jarboiu herself has a fascination both of vo'.co and gesture, and she has been iemarkably successful in surrounding herself with womou who are comely and charming in every sense. Tliti Baptist Aid Society. The Ladies' Aid Society, of the Baptist Church, will meet at the residence of A. Munro, West Church street, Thursday evening. Refreshments will be served, the proceeds to be used in beautifying tho main auditorium of the church. Hand in Hand Meitinj;.

The Laramie Republican says tho buffalo hunting expedition organized in that city includes .1. C. Robbins, Jack Hills, John Woodruff and Frank Kelly, who are accompanied by a couple ot the most expert lassoors iu tho country. Their object is not to slaughter the herd, but to lasso! them, and take them alive to Laramie. The herd has been seen by sovoral different parties during the past year, and its haunts are pretty well known. It is supposed to bo now ranging on Red Desert, in Carbon and Fremont counties, and that is the objective point of the Laramie hunters. They tako with them a grub wagon ami tan saddle horses, and expect to be absent four months. If at the ond of that time they should return with a half dozen or more buffaloes, they will have a property nearly as valuable as a gold miue,and will, in all probability, start a buffalo ranch on the Larame Plains, after the style of that owned by the Hon. C. J. Jones at Garden City, Kansas. "Buffalo" .Tones as ho is familiarly known has a very large ranch at Garden City, on which he has some two hundred head of full blooded and gradod bisons. He has made a great success at breeding them with native cattle, and finds that tho animal thus obtaiucd is iu many respects superior to tho bison, the robo particularly being of a lovely seal brown and as fine as a genuine sealskin. Jones has been trying to get hold of all tho buffaloes loft on this continent, and two years ago purchased tho famous herd owned by a party near Winnepeg, paying a very large price for them. The only other herd known to exist in this country, ib one atBismaiok Grove, Colorado, numbering fifteen and owned by Col. H. II. Stanton, of Kansas City. They are not for sale at any price. That tho capture of the herd is feasible is shown by the fact that a few months ago a cowboy who ran across them lassoed one, threw it and branded it after which ho turned it loose, tho State law making it a penitentiary offence to kill a buffalo. Tho difficulty tbo party will encounter will not bo so much to capture this noble game as to got them to Laramie after they are taken, as they are tho most stubborn and intractable brutes on earth. It is probable that they will be taken to tho nearest railroad station and shipped in the cars. There is scarcely a donbt that this will ba the last buffalo hunt enjoyed by any party in tho United States-it certainly will bo tho last in Wyoming if successful, and if through its moans the species can be increased and perpetuated the expedition will not have been undertaken in vain. A full-blooded American bison is worth from $000 to $3,000 whore they can be bought at all. TERSELY TOLD HAPPENINGS. The Sixth I'ennsylvaniit District.

When a trainman prospers and gets a passenger train he speaks of his good fortune as running varnished cjrs and eating pie. When be is iu tho humbler calliug of working on a freight traiu he sometimes calls it eating corn bread in the dog house. Genoral Manager Tallmage, of the Wabash, was of tho old achool'of railroaders, who believe in attending to tbe do-tails of the lino. IIo bad boon a trainman himself, and ho knew the weaknesses of the craft, lie would watch the train sheets, aud if a erew reported delays at a certain point on about every run,' he would go down- there ; quietly and keep an eye out for them. He took one of these trips on one occasion and supposed his movements were unknown to the crews he wished to watch, for he went secretly as an ordinary passenger, and did not reach his destination until after dark, but to use tho slang of the men, they were on to him. He .secreted himself on a gondola loaded with ear wheels, and thought that he was unobserved until a bra kern an, pretending to cake him for a tramp, camo along and kicked him most mercilessly. At every blow of tho foot he accentuated the action with some ornamental profanity very painful to hear. Mr. Tallmage did not reveal hia identity, but limped away, aud he found out that the man who had so maltreated him was really a valuable man, and not responsible for the delay. After tho kicking tho braketnan went back to the caboose and Biid'to his conductor: "Well, I fixed the bid 'man. I suppose I'll got my envelope at the end of the run. It's all right, though This ain't the only road." Two days later the brakeman was summoned to the general manager's office. He shook hands with the boss, bade him goodbye, pushed his cap over" his loft oar defiantly and walked away to tho slaughter. Mr. Tallmage asked him now long he had been braking, questioned' him about various matters pettiinlng to handling trains, and then .fairly knocked him silly by informing him that he should report to the trainmaster; who would' give him a position as conductor. 'By the way,"said Mr.Talmage, as the astonished man-was leaving, the office, are you bothered with tramps on your division ?" Tho brakeman blushed a little then summoned all his stolidity and said; "Yes, but we're cleaning 'em out. I ran across ono two nights ago hid in a car o' wheels and kicked the old bum half way across the State. He won't bother me no more." Indianapolis Sun. The Barrnndla Afl"*lr. San Francisco, Sept. 30.-The Pacific Mail steamer, Acapulco, arrived here today from Panama.
