[See preceding page for late telegraphic news.] COMMITTEE MEETING. The Democratic county central committee will meet at the court house in Carroll on Tuesday. June 12, at 1 o'clock for the purpose of fixing a date for the Democratic county convention. JNO. T. JAy, County Chairman. No wild-cat bnokB for ne; *he house wisely voted down the bill repealing the 10 per cent tax. The bill to repeal the 10 per cent tax on state banks was defeated in the house last Wednesday 'by a large majority. Every state but Iowa baa plenty of water; but then none of them bad each a fool legislature aa we did. Prohibition ia still on top. Joe Dreee wants to know if. the committee will be padded next Tuesday ? Well, if it ip, it will not be packed with the family journal aggregation to any pereeptible extent. The family journal aggregation wants na to tell why Oololo tried to defeat Kennebeok two years ago. When it tells as why five or six hundred Democrats tried to do this it will be in order for as to give oar experience. Kelley and bis army are now floating down the Mississippi. At tbe rate be is going be will not get to Washington until quite late in the sweet bye and bye. But he and his men are -being supported without laboring and tbia is a big thing for them. John Sherman, the master of American politics, would not vote against the sugar schedule as passed by tbe Democrats of tbe senate, -end wben bia name was. called be refused to vote. He disliked to go on record •gainst bia party but be was too honorable to vote against BO just a schedule. horses of the party for a cumber ot years and has never received anything from the hands of his parly that hae remunerated him to any degree for tbe time and money he fans devoted to the cause of Democracy in this state. We are pleased to know that hie services have at laot been properly recognized. Tbe sugar schedule in tbe tariff bill baa been passed by the senate and tbe party crossed tbe bridge in safety. This was tbe schedule that it was hoped defeat tbe bill and now it has gone through tbe Republicans have given up oil hopes ot defeating tariff reform and thucountry breathes easier. Hill and Ir'n' were tbe only traitors in the senate on tbe Democratic side. Three Republicans were favorable to the sugar schedule as adopted by the senate. Oregon held an election Monday and tbe Republicans are enthusiastic over the fact that the state went Republican, so that a United States senator will te returned to succeed Senator Dolph a Republican. In all probability Mr. Dolpb will be bis own successor. Tbe Republicans get up considerable enthusiasm over tbe fact that the party is still alive. We are pleased to know that Pennoyer baa been retired. It is a godsend to that commonwealth and one for which all tbe people should feel truly grateful. The Republican county convention to select delegates to the state .congressional and judicial conventions has been called to meet in this city June 26. The judicial convention will be held in this city July 2, and the congressional convention at Webster Oity July 10. Judge Paine will soon know bis fate. It looks no was if his own party was going to set down on him, as there will be a candidate from every county to assist in HARBIET BEECHER STOWE. June 14 Is the eighty-second birthday of the famous author of " Uncle Tom's Cabin." She was born at Litchfleld, Conn., In 1813 and was the third daughter and sixth child of Dr. Lymaa Beecher and Roxana Foote. Henry Ward Beecher was her brother. sealing hie political career, politics, judge, and yon must such things. Such ia look for No officer or ex-officer who has hsld offioe for four years in this county is eligible to a nomination for a county offioe by tbe Democratic party until be bas been out of offioe at least four years, so said the last Democratic county convention. The question is did they mean it or were tbe delegates talking through their hats. It tbe conspiracy combination thinks it oan prove what it bos been saying regarding the official papers it is hereby challenged to appear before the board of supervisors and show wherein we have taken one cent from tbe public treasury that we were not justly entitled to. It can't do it and it knows it as well H any one. • What's tbe matter, with the two term rule? Have lie friends all died or are Chairman J. T. Jay bos called tbe meeting of tbe Democratic county central committee for Tuesday, June 12, at 1 o'clock at tbe court house. Tbe general opinion is that the committee will select July 26 as tbe date for holding the county convention for nominating a county ticket, and to select delegates to the state, congressional and jndioal conventions. As the state convention is called for August the first, no later date than July 26 can well be selected without holding two conventions and the, rank aud file of the party is opposed to that. ' The name of P. J. Koenig, of Washington township, is being quite prominently mentioned for tbe offioe of county supervisor. A delegation of bis neighbors were in the city one day this week and desired us to state that Mr. Eoenig would make a competent official and that they were desirous of seeing him become a candidate. It begins to look as if there will be no scarcity of aspirants for this offioe, for we understand that 0. H. Flenker, of Washington township, aod Ed Date, of Union, will not object .to filling tbe vacancy to be made by the retiring of Obris Hausmann. Now Prove What You Say.

We want to tell these men that our bill is filed for our charges and that tbe board will act on it during tbe next week. It they are men and believe what they bave been saying, that tbe proceedings were not published properly and that we were robbing tbe county by padding tbia list, that we wont them to go before the board and demand that our bill be corrected. If they do not do this and show tbe board that we have been cheating, they are black-nailer* and are only trying to injure our standing with the people of this county. No, gentlemen,we insist that you do Ibis and if you do not we will be justified in claiming that yon wen misrepresenting us and at tbe same time deceiving jour readers. Be men and do not come tbe baby tot. We challenge investigation and now is tbe time to do it. GonyreM. Tbe senate bas spent another week on the tariff bill. WhiUtue prog nn bas been •low, still tbe work of going through tbe bill and reviewing tbe various achsdoUs is progressing favorably, Xbe main feature during this period has been tbe lage of the sugar eobediil*, This wot tba plow where the Republicans bod confidently counted on- defeating tbe bill if at any period. Now that this portion of the schedule bos baan disposed of, this is BO longer my question regarding tbe uttimaJe passage of tut bill. All the time. that will be consumed from this on will ta for political effect, for. tbe Democratic senators bave demonstrated their intention of passing tbe bill jast as ills and all tbe debate tbet ma? be in- dulf *d i» will have no «ffsot whatever on a bill banks. After wrestling with it for tea dnvs the bill was defeated by a large mnjor ity. This disposes of the question of wild oat banks and leaves tbe finances ot tbe country on a solid basis. The Electric Hallway. Forty-four per cent of the population of thts country now live in the cities. The number of those who ara drawn from the farms annually to engage in labor or business in the city is increasing rapidly. This tendency bids fair to continue at least for some years to come. But there is one thing which is bound not to continue. That is the constantly increasing and exorbitant rents charged for city dwellings and flats. It has almost reached its climax now. Perhaps the best place for the busy worker at work is the city, but certainly the best place to live in is the country. The citj workers will increase no doubt, but it i no less certain that the country dweller will soon begin to increase in like ratio One reason why town rents have risen till they eat up a third of a-man's in come in some instances ia that the town man must be at his business early am late. He must be near it In order to make this possible. Therefore he cannq live out in the country. It would COB sumo two or three hours going .bock am forth. A suburban town is not the real conn try in which a man of moderate means can have a garden and keep a cow, if not a horse. To reach this, the real country and share its delights and have health for his family, the city business man must go too far out .to reach his office or factory in time in the morning. So he and his wife and children mure themselves up in stuffy flats and remain pale and languid and bewail their fate. But a busy little agent is working quietly that is going to change this state of affairs. It istheelectrio'railway.witb its clean, bright cars flashing and bumming swiftly by. The time is at hand when every country neighborhood of any importance will have its electric railway conveying passengers to the steam rail road station, if not always to tbe city itself. Wherever there is a country road within a hundred miles of a city, there it Is the mission of the electric car to build up, beautify and develop the rural home. It will enable the city man of small means to enjoy the rustic luxuries now only within reach of the millionaire. Tbe electric railway ia an important factor in civilization. \Tfa* bona* bos been bosj w|tb tM u More Men Thau Women. The United States census bureau baa issued a special bulletin containing marriage statistic*. It baa been as carefully compiled as tbe nature of the case would admit. Its conclusions upset several points of popular belief. One of these is that there are more women than men in the country. The cold figures show that this is not true of the country at large, even if it be so of Massachusetts, But Maasachiuetta is not tbe country, though Boston may think the country revolves around her aa a pivot. Tbe fact is that we bave 1,422,410 more males than females in the United States, ao that every woman could have a hut- band if she wanted one and bave a fraction of a man to spare besides, so far a* the mere supply of men goes. This ought to comfort those maidens who still bava hope that their affinities may be found, though it holds oat small consolation to bachelors. Statistics of widowhood and widower- hood show 1 a difference on tbe other aids. Widows are (or acme reason far more constant to tbe memory of the dear da- parted than widowers. For every widower who remuiiiR in tba single state tbera are ty widows, And yet, with the majority of widower* remarrying, there art •till nearly* million and a naif husbands left over for tbe ladies who want them, Perhaps they are not distributed iu the right districts. Until a northerner visits the ground •iiuuelf he has not an accurate idea of the problem that confronts the south in the future of tbe negro. Northern wen who bave taken up their residence iu tha former slave elates have been accused of turning traitor |«4 toadying to the wutb' ern sentiment on the negro question ic order to succeed in- business. It is a fact, however, that even the views of the most radical friends of the black man are modified by a stay in the south. In the north the blacks are in the minority. They are stimulated by the influence of the white people among whom they live to clean themselves up, to wear whole clothing, to educate themselves and save money. The northern negro can meet on equal- terms in many instances the most cultivated white people. In some of the southern states the blacks are so numerous that it would take a half century for the cleanest and most thrifty of white people to induct them into permanently better ways. One visiting these black states for the first time is vividly impressed with the different between the northern and southern ne- gro. The southern black is stupider more ignorant and horribly dirty in his person. This last seems the most hope less feature in the case. If the southern black seemed to have any pride as to a clean ekin and whole garments, thenizn provement in the moral and intellectual region might be looked for. But the southern negro seems even blacker in color than the northern one. There is as much difference between the two as between a poverty stricken Russian Jew just landed and a Belmont or a Rothschild. It is not Latin and Greek or a professional education that the southern negro wants. He must first of all be taught to earn his.own living systematically and faithfully. He wants industrial e& ncation most of all. Particularly he should-be instructed in improved methods of agriculture. To this end the experiment stations in the south ought to labor unceasingly. A great future is before the south, especially in products of the soil. The negro is the laborer best adapted to tilling that soil. Beading, writing and arithmetic enough to enable him to keep accounts constitute book education sufficient for him in the face of the greater need of industrial instruction. North should unite with ,Bouth in one great effort to elevate the negro by giving him a scientific industrial training. It ia the solution of the problem that faces the south. the New National Libra** Marty people have wondered what had become of the magnificent hew National library building at Washington, the one which wp,8 ordered by congress more than nii o years ago, but which is not ner.:.-.- finished yet. A writer in Kate Flail's Washington uncovers some of tlifl dust that 1ms accumulated around tins subject and informs the world what is going on inside the great board fence east of the capitol building. On the point most of interest to us all, however —that is, when the work will bo finished —even Kate Field seems unable to give information, it is certain that the great and beautiful building, when once it is done, will be the largest and finest library structure in the world. It will cover 111,000 square feet of ground and will hold more than 4,000,000 books. At present in the Congressional library, which will be transferred to this building when it is finished, there are 700,000 bound volumes and 800,000 pamphlets. The number will be increased to 1,000,000 before the new edifice is complete. Librarian Spofford says it will hold all the books needed for the National library for 160 years to come. France now contains in its National library the largest number of books. Great Britain comes next and after her Germany. As to ourselves, it will not be flattering to our national vanity to find that we are behind even Russia in the size of our library. She comes fourth, and we are fifth. Municipal" government in the tfaitetl States is a feat-fill and wonderful thing. For instance, Philadelphia pays $31 • year for each gasoline lamp in its streets. Chicago gets tlie same service for $15 a lamp, and Chicago is not a very econoin* ical city either. Great is "pull." , People are sometimes very Unkind. There are those who are * even cruet enough to say that the redhot preaching of Mr, Taltnage through so many yean was v/hat set fire to his Tabernacle. -1 Forosf'ttres are burning 15 miles out ol West Superior, Wis., on the Northern Pacific railroad.

Wentbrook. Unique Railroad Advertising. In one instance at least a railway general passenger agent bas turned missionary, and to good purpose. The main part of bis road runs through a district givtn up to, dairying and keeping summer boarders. Indeed a thriving farmer in that region declares that his most successful prop is summer boarders and that it increases every year, Realizing the vast possibilities of the summer boarder, tbe shrewd general passenger agent began the task of drumming up trade In this staple for the farmers along his route. .Every victim that waa secured meant just so many dollars ad- litioual for his road. He made a house » bouse canvass of every neighborhood along his route and ascertained bow many families did or would, if'strongly enough tempted, take city people for the summer. Then he published their names and addresses in a railway guidebook asued by .his company. The attractions n each neighborhood were specified, and other information was given, But that was not enough. This mi* sionory railroad drummer-had a bright girl write a book telling country people tow to retain summer boarders alter hey had got them, and how to make hem long each winter for the summer « come, when they could return to tbe familiar restful farmhouse. Result—everybody waa happy, and tbe rood reaped a harvest of gain.

That expresses it all to his mind. The Chicago man, on the other hand, alludes ;o Atlanta as the "Chicago of the south." Joth are satisfied, and no harm is done. Atlanta is indeed different from the supposed type of southern city. Not anywhere, even in the cold and bracing northwest, is there more aggressive business activity. Some of the most beautiful homes in America are embowered in bloom and verdure along its shaded streets. It has given evidence of much literary and journalistic talent. It has bestowed on mankind Joel Chandler Harris, Henry W. Grady and Sam Small, not to speak of Secretary Hoke Smith. A new poet, one of the rising verse makers of America, Frank L. Stan ton, belongs at present to the staff of the Atlanta Constitution. For these and other reasons the International and Cotton States exposition set down for the last third of 1695 at Atlanta will be a striking success. It will be different from any fair we have yet had in this country, in that it will make a marked feature of products from the West Indies and South America.

For the great common people the Concord grape is the best table grape known in all the eastern and middle sections of the country. When allowed to get fully ripe, it is scarcely excelled in flavor by even the product of California vines. It is cheap enough to be within the reach of all,* It has undoubtedly added to the health and lengthened the life of thousands of people who will regret to learn that tbe man who gave it to America— EphralmW. Bull—is dying in poverty and obscurity at Concord, Mass., the town whose name Mr. Bull gave to his new grape. Nearly 60 years ago he planted grape seeds and crossed their product on the wild vines that grew along tbe Concord river. The result is the grape that is perhaps more widely cultivated than any other in the world. Other men have made fortunes off it. Mr. Bull, at the age of 67, lingers on in extreme poverty. It is a shame. There is something that should be sat upon. It is the impertinence and pomposity of. a considerable minority of tbe doctors employed on salaries in insane asylums, hospitals and other public institutions. Reputable physicians themselves should be among the first to help suppress tbe impertinence and pom- pouty of these hirelings who take advantage of a sure living to show out all tbe uuwhipped savagery aud barbarity of their natures.
