Si'AiN has becotno a convert to tbe doctrine of protection. Her new Prime Minister says that will hereafter be the ruling policy of the country. A scan has jast died iu New York who did a profitable business by predicting fires for the benefit of the in&uranoe companies.

THE TARIFF CONFERENCE. A Southern Congressman proposes that tbe remains of General Grant shall be interred in a Bimple, but massive, tomb at Arlington, and that the nation build a bridge from Washington to Arlington, to be called the Grant Memorial Bridge. There is good sense in this suggestion. The devolopement of electrical soieuce and mechanics is one of the wonders of the . world. At the Centennial exhibition in 1870 a few electric lights were displayed aa a sort of experimental plaything. Today there is nearly $400,000,000 invested in electric light plants in this country alone, and as a motive power it is rapidly superceding steam. The Now York Sun publishes the confessions of several of the men engaged in the recent attempts at train-wrecking on the New. York Central Road. They did not implicate any others than the men arrested in the actual work of plaoinE; obstructions on the traok, but did declare that Master Workmen Lee, whose edict precipitated the strike, gave some of them money to escape to Canada. The bill to extend free mail delivery to cities having a population of 5,000 or yielding a gross revenue to the Post Office of $5000 passed the Senate on Saturday. As it has still to pass the House, it is not likely to become a law at this session; but it is in the line of constant movement in which this country is advancing toward the same system of mail delivery tnat pro-vails in England. In that country every man's mail is carried to him, whether ho lives in town or country; the free delivery system is universal. The Fat*. Ring. I was told of a singular tale of a ring while on a recent visit to the Paris Morgue For nearly one hundred years a certain family of working people in Paris have ended their lives by suicide. From father to son, from mother to daughter, has been handed a-piain gold ring, end on the fiuger of each of these suicides has been fonnd this trinkut. It has been called the fatal ring, and only last year it made its appearance on tbe finger of a young man-the last of the race. The ring waa buried with the corpse. The cupidity of not oven the most grasping body-finder could be tempted to the possession of this ominous golden circlet. The Sugar and Binding Twine Schedules Not Tet Settled.

At a meeting of the Council of the borough of Renovo, on Monday night, a WilUamspoiter named Lee Berry, was recommended by Chief Burgresa Furgo-son, for Chief of Police, and the Council confirmed hia appointment by n\ vote of four in favor to three againnt.

Washington, Sept. 23.-The Republican conferees on tho Tariff bill were in session this morning. Alter they had separated it was said there was no further progress to the report. The principal items of difference are those that have been obstacles like mountain peaks in the way of agreement from the beginning-sugar, binding twine, metals and glassware. The key to the whole situation is tho sugar schedule. Were an agreement reached on that less than five minutes would be required to settle all other questions. It is expected, however, by the House conferees that an agreement will be reached before 12 o'clock to-night, while on the Senate side there is a feeling that the situation is not quite so favorable as it was last night. After an agreement is reached it will require at least a day for the clerks to prepare a report for presentation to the two houses, so that it probably will not go into the House before Thursday at the earliest. REPUBLICAN SENATORS IN CAUCUS. This afternoon a conference was held of Republican Senators who voted in the Senate to put binder twine on the free list. There were present Messrs. Ingalls, P.umb, Peiroe, Casey, Pettigrow, Moody, Wilson, Davis, Power and Paddock. It was Btatcd to them that the conferees on the Tariff bill proposed to impose a small duty, the amount not named, on binder twine, and the qaeatioo was asked whether or not they would accept such a compromise. .Niue out of the teu Senators named pledged themselves, it is said, to ] vote against the adoption of the confer- \ ence report in case binder twine were taken off the free list. This determination was conveyed to the conference, who were then in session in au adjoining room. THE DEMOCRATS VEXED. The Democratic minority was considerably vexed over the result of the day's proceedings in the House, and a call for a caucus WdS circulated with the purpose of endeavoring to unite the party by way of retaliation upon the policy of treatment of the conference report upon the Tariff bill, which would require the Republicans to maintain a quorum of their own members to dispose of that report, but owing to tbe lateness of the hour, and the small attendance of Democratic members tho attempt to caucus was temporarily abandoned, although it was stated that it would probably be renewed to-morrow. TIIIXKI3n it ,the odor of stale jokes plays no part; it is a new show with new witticisms, new music, new dances, new burlesque, new specialties. TLo male quartette is worth the admission and is only one of a dozen good features. Every min in tho circle is a solo singer and the euphonium aud olar-ionut solos by Geo. Dunbar aud Walter Scott are nothing loss than a first class en-teitiinmettt. Some minstrel companies aro larger than Vreeland's but none better. Tho above ia from the DnBois Courier of Monday.

Ringliug Bros., Proprietors and managers of Ricgliiig Bros,' colossal railroad sbow, wish to announce to tho people of Clinton county aud the surrounding couutry that on Wednesday, October 1 the date of their great moral show at Lock Haven, cumbltng, etc., will positively bo prohibited. The press in tho towns where they have appeared speak highly in their praise and there is no doubt that they will fulfill their promises, as they have done in the past. THE REPUBLICAN CLUBS.

From Leeds' Mercury, Mr. Uosie, tho British Consni at Wen-obow, in his late report, contrasting tbe methods of harvesting the poppy prevailing in Western and Eastern China, says that if the cultvatiors of the poppy in the East were as skilled in the art of collecting tbe juice as tbeir eountrymon iu Western China it is alt but certain that the foreign import would be very small, indeed. In Western China tbe capsules are sacrificed by moans of a parallel row of knife points projecting from one of the ends of a short wooden handle. The inoiafons, which are exceedingly fine, are made iu tb3 evening, and the juice, exuding slowly, is harvested iu the morning before BUnrise. There is no waste. In tbe Eastern provinces, on the other baud, au instrumout resembling a small carpenter's planeisemployed. The operator paBSes the plane over the capsule, leaving the shaving of the skin attaohed to its lower end. The juiae immediately exudes from the oap3ule, and although the collector follows closely on tbe heels of the operator it flows so fast that niuoh of it drops on tbe leaves of tbe stem and is lost. As an example of the manner in which native, as compared to -Iudian, opium is eonsumod iu his district, Mr. Hosie mentions that a refuge for the oure'df; opium smokers was opened by a missionary in the city of Wenohow during the past year, and that out of many scores of applicants for admission only one smoker ot Indian opium presented himself/'and he haB ascertained from parties well qualified to judge that not more than fire per cent, of smokers consume the foreign drag. With a view to insure the fnll payment'of likin or inland transit duties ;on native opium, regulations were, with 'the sanction of the high provincial authorities, promulgated previous to:tbe harvesting of last year's orop by the likin officers. They enjoined intending purchasers before proceeding to tbe cenntry districts to report at'tbe offices tho quantities they proposed to purchase, and to take out passes, which with the opium, had to be' presented at tho barriers and stations for examination. Opium not covered by pisses was to be confiscated and the carriers punished. But owing to the ea9e with which tbe drng oan be coooeated and smuggled,, tho regulations have not been' generally ' respected. Senatorial and Congressional Conferees. Messrs. J. W. Smitb, Judge Crawford and W. H. Brown left this morning for Tyrone, where the Democratic Senatorial conference for this district meets to-day. They go as T. O. Hippie's conferees, and were accompanied by a number of prominent Democrats of this oity, and will nse every honorable effort to obtain the nomination of Mr. Hippie. There are a number of gentlemen in the oity to-day who are en ronte for Forest aouuty to attend tbe ^Demooratio Congressional oonferenoe of tbe .Twenty-eighth district, which is composed of the counties of Centre, Clearileld, Elk, Clarion Forest. Among the oonforees In tbe oity are Captain Clark, J. A. Woodward of Centre. A. W Lee, A, O.Smith, George Dimeling and J. F. Snyder, of Clearfield eonnty. They are all registered at ffhe Fallon House. The lEoard of Trade Meeting. A special meeting of the Board of Trade was held last night to bear tbe repott of the committee on tbe matter of propositions to sub-lease tbe rooms in which the Board meets. The committee reported propositions from tbe Young Men's Chris-tiun Association and Cliutoo League. AHur considerable discussion Ihu whole mutter was referred back to the committeo for report at another meeting. The committeo waa instructed to ascertain whethor either of the associations named in their repott would tahe the rooms oil the bauds of the Hoaul of Trado, iustead of sub-leasiug from that olgauiz&tiou. Ouo of tbe census enumerators in Clearfield county found a woman twenty-two 1years old who had given bitth to nino children. "Little Nugget" � Success. . There are many aohing. sides in Look Haven to-day caused.by .the continual laughter at the comical situations and funny Bayings in "Littio: Nugget," as ptesented at tbe Opera Hpiue: but sight. The plot of tbe play is about as. thin as a church festival oyster stew but-the fan flows as thick as molasses in January, Why, even tbe life-like figure painted in the dome of the theatre was noticed to smile at some . of the antiosjof H. S. Cawthorn as "Barney O'Brady." J. Cawthorn as vJakey Jumpher," and Mies Druoio Gilmore as "Little Nugget" provod themselves clever artUU, fine dancers and sweet singers and the entire company were at tbeir bout and answered encores. In short "Little Nugget" is one of the best cures tor the blues that has struck this place in many days. A Saw Mill Burned. The steam saw mill, owned by iR. Vf. MeCormick & Sou, and situated at Cherry Run, iu Lainar to .vuship, this county, was destroyed by fire laBt night. The loss is partly covered by insurance with tho agoncy of J. N. Wolliver & Co, Thb origin of the Ore is a mystery*. None of tho lumber was burned excepting about 1,000 fuot which was in the mill. John Fisber uf this oity, lost all his tools iu the Gre. This is the second tirno bo lias sustained a loss of tools by fire this sutpnier, the first time being when tho mill of Kintziug & Biokfoid ourned.
