[Enteredaa necond-clasB mutter at tue Logsnfr- [>ort t-ost Office, February 8, THE AND DEMOCRATIC TARIFF LUMBER. Tne evil effects of Democratic tariff tinkering have no! been confined to a few industries or to any section, but the whole country ba» suffered. While one community has suffered in one way another community baa been affected ID u different way. An Erie couDty, Now York correspondent of tUo American Economist ehows how the lumber trade has iuilered, Ha •aye: . "There are flyo sawmlllo in our town of a capacity oi from 250,600 to 1,750,000 feet of lumber yearly, which have In former years been run to their fullest capacity. Owing to the reduction of the tariff duties on lumber and logs, the two largest mills will not purchase logs thie year. Last winter these two mills purchased and sawed into lumber 1,673,833 and 1,751,912 feet of lojfs respectively, paying from $7 to $9 per thousand feet for maple and beech logs, which gave a revenue of between $110,000 and $115,000 to the farmers from these two mills which, In a community of 259 farms, Hsaisted quite a little toward paying taxes and meeting ordinary expend! tures, and n revenue that the farmers will Badly ml8a. I had a conversation with one of our largest mill owners concerning the shutting 'down of the mill, asking him the reason for BO doing, and his answer was the following: '•Com. 1 petition in our home market with Canada has ruined our prospect3 for selling our lumber. If we saw it, hence we must not buy logs this season." This is the general feeling of all the lumbar producing mills in this town, aud the annual product which, during the past ten years, has averaged about 4.3^0,000 feet, will not exceed 1,500,000 feet this year, which will mean to out town a loss of $224 000 cash,a sum that the farmers can ill-afford to spare. In thirteen towns in this vicinity I verily believe tho loss in the lumber trade alone will roach a total of $2,SOO 000. So much for humbug Democracy's tariff tinkering.

The measure is being fully discussed by tho press of that State. Ttifc later Ocean says: "The question of divorce for insanity la an exceedingly difficult one. No ono is in favor of it except in hopeless cases. The difficulty is to determine when the case is really hopeless. Tho moat expert alienist is far from being a prophet with unerring power to look into the future. But, on the other hand, the percentage of recoveries after tho exports have had ample time to study tho case and then pronounce it incurable, is very email.

Open Day and Evening 616 BROADWAY. Welcome To All, WANTED. THE three women legislators of Colorado are attraction much attention They are said to be above the averag-e of members oi the legislature In ability. One of the three has created somewhat of a sensation by refusing to sit for the legislative court photographer. She does not desire her picture to adorn the capitol of the Centennial State. This lack of vanity is noteworthy. It may be said without exaggeration that the question of the hour is the supply of seamen for our Hc-et. says, the I'ull Mall Budget. Ko jug with figures can conceal the fact that in case of war we cannot send even ::!' our modern vessels to sea. Ihou every nerve was strained at the maneuvers! though the depots were depleted of seamen and stokers, we had to leave in port no less than 1133 fighting craft. In this total are included ten first and second class battleships, ten third-class battleships, seven coast defense ironclads, four old ironclads, seventeen cruisers, eleven torpedo gunboats, forty destroyers and sixty-nine serviceable torpedo boats. Many of the vessels in this enormous category are of the newest construction, and, though some are not yet completed for sea, all should be finished by the end of the financial year. We have none too many cruisers us it is, and when war is upon us we sliull want every single one to protect our colossal trade. All the older ironclads will be needed to convoy ouv slow- ocean tramps, all our coast defense vessels to protect our unfortified ports nnd towns on the coast. The French are known to contemplate the bombardment of open towns, and this is the only means by which we can prevent stray cruisers doing us terrible harm. Our battleships will be wanted for the combat and to watch our enemies" ports. Our ironclads lack their proper complement of torpedo gunboats and torpedo boats; ind ced, our first line, the Mediterranean ' fleet, has still only two. The crews required for tho ships which woul d not be able to put to sea amount to no less than 22,610 men, or, reducing them to the lowest possible limit, i!0,000. Ships we can build in three years and less, br.t sailors can hardly be trained for war in twice that time. Since 18SO we have been building faster than we could obtain seamen. We have on the stocks, or projected, to-day another mass of vessels which rcquive at least 10,000 more men. It is true that the naval estimates for 180-i contemplate an addi- tiod to our personnel of over 0,000 men, but this is a mere drop in the ocean to tho number which we require. Wo must understand that the Englisli fleet disposes of practically no trained reserve. • Though the naval conflict of to-:norrow will be bloody beyond belief, involving holocausts of ships and men, we have not merely too few sailors to take our effective ships to sea, but no one to replace those who fall in the struggle. Year by year the proportion of !>-£• lish seamen in our mercantile m:u'i:it dwindles, while tho proportion of foreigners increases. Of our 80,000 .Tb:<! seamen nn less than 07,000 are foreign crs, and half the romaiutior havvj had less than four years' service. Nor ib it a question of wages, prom tho ship owners goes up the ominous co-.vipla.mt that the iwvedc or the Germaa is butter educated, more sober, more respectful, lie does not desert, lie is a better sailor, and his physique is superior. "The supremacy of the English sailor is waning," says the chairman of the West India and" Pacific Steamship company. These are terrible words for us, whose pride and whose heritage in tho past has been the sea. Our naval reserve numbers in its first class 20,000 men. Their training in . limited in tho extreme. They, are, j many of them, ignorant of the manlpu- I lation of the breechloader, for roch is tue wisdom si our rulers that thoype** : Bist in drilling our reserves with ob- ! soleto guns. At Wick, where 1.160 wen arc trained, there is not a single. modern weapon. After t.M« they |ret a month at sea on a war ship. And thaft is all. The trumpet will eonadi aa ' many of them as can be obtained In- ; our home ports will be huddled on board our ironcla'ds; lieutenant* and officers will be borrowed from ablpa la ; commission, and our fleet will b« putt ; to sea—to sure o.nd 'certain defeat.; ' Abroad there is readiness for action, at home unreadines*. - A DnUMMER'S BLACK £YE. >" »f Annoyiinoa (1 Crriiu:d for Ui« and \\-yttUmi. j Loinuie tell you soaielhing. said the ' di-ammer as he slowly e;i ressed the bandage which held the piece of raw boe£ lightly over his right eye and got 'iis right knee up where he could clasp but'.! lu'.iuls arinin-.l It.

REMARKABLE RUNNING. An Acconnt of the Fast Traveling Don» by an Indian. A, W. Anthony, a mining engineer and naturalist, now living in San Diego, tells of an instance of fast travelling so extraordinary as to put all six-day go- as-you-please records in the deep shade, says the Los Angeles Times. We were In Stin Fernando, Mexico, several hundred mHes below San Diego, f says Mr. Anthony. A band of renegade Indiana held up tho camp, stealing nil portable property. It was desirable to get a message to the nearest governor, two hundred and sixty miles away, for assistance to chase the outlaws. One runner, Jose, a mision Indian, six feet two inches tall, weighing about one hundred and eighty pounds, all muscle ha .f r 1 " ske "', iiTirl hmi/i WH* rrivon the distJEich and ^°' rc P^ le< l president paused in the recitation, turned a deadly pallor and, sln-ieking, mounted a chair. Confusion reigned, four of the heroines fainted, nineteen others mounted tables and convenient furniture, while two climbed up the chandelier, just as a wee little mouse scampered across the floor. Instantly the sergeant-at-arms f our'.shcd a small poker above her he-d and with that the little mouse made a bceline for tho nearest hole. After q-.iict was restored the president put the following resolution: ".Resolved, That the. reason the honorable body arose in such consternation with the advent of a mouse in the sacred precincts of this castle of feminity was not because it was a mouse, but because that mouse was of the opprobrious sex which this estimable body has sworn to repudiate once and forever.' 1 "liut how do j'ou. know it was a man mouse?' ?' 1 inquired one of the more cour- of the council.

English companies crtvn lines having 1 a length of more than 150,000 miles, which cost over £30,000,000 and produce a revenue of more-than £4,000,000. The government- has done everything in its power to facilitate the laying of these cables by subvention and patronage, a;ad the preliminary 'surveys have beeji nearly all made by the' naval authorities. In return <. the: - companies are obliged to give, priority to, the dispatches of the imperial.,and .colonial, governments over all others, to employ no foreigners and to- allow no wire to be under the control of..foreign govern-, menta, 'and in case of vrar to replace •their servants by. governn&ri't official*' ' bone, was given the dispatch and •urged to make haste over the rugged and sometimes mountainous road to the governor.
