JTJLY 8. 1S97 Now let the House hnstle and give the country a rest on thi tariff ngony. President MeTvinley is rteternvneil that the currency question shall also be settled the satisfaction of the business men of the country. He is keeping faith with' the p?orile sinrt 'in due time the full men - sure - of prosperity will he re.ilized. And. now the ezrir has taken a hand in trying to convince his good friend, the Turk, that his conduct in keeping a tight grip on Thessaly is unseemly. It remains to he seen whether the czar can convince the Turk where the little Oerman Em - peror failed. Down in Fairfield county, South Carolina, the Southern gentlemen burned a Mormon church. To them' it was an agreeable diversion from the regulation "nigger hunt." The Yellow Journals of New York are fairly reveling over the discovery of the murderer who cut his victim up and threw the remains into the river. And every one of them will claim the credit of having furnished the information that led to the arrest of the murderer. We read that at a meeting of theJnnior Christian Endeavorers in San Francisco the singing of patriotic songs was a feature. That is a good thing. Christianity and patriotism go hand in hand, and the Endeavor societies are spreading both. More power to them. They will show the Pacific coast people something this week that they never dreamed of when they invited the convention to meet in San Francisco. Mr. Cleveland has written a letter to a western Democrat in which the free, silver people can see that he still adheres to Gro - ver Cleveland's principles. He says ttiat no success worth the name can be reached except by the pah of principle. We should infer then that in 1900 Mr. Cleveland, seeing the Democratic party again captured by the free silver people, will 'assist in snowing under Bryan and his horde once more. At all events it looks as if that is what will have to be done. Governor Hastings has his hands full just n:iw. but all of the visiting de'ega - t;ons wi'l get fair play. The Governor is not going to pass on any bill without he gives it. carefnl consideration. All of thr bills now in his hands may not become ;,nvs. but none will become a law unless the Governor is - convinced that it Is for the best interests of the. people. At least that is th" way the Governor expresses himself. It Is said that within a few days Governor Hastings will, if he has not done so already, seriousily consider the propriety of legislation now awaiting his signature, and taking large .sums of money out of the public 'treasury. If Governor Hastings has obsf - rved the tone of the newspaper press of the State without .regard to party, if he has come in contact with any considerable number of people, and disonnsed with them the cbaracter of legislation of the session just closed, he must know that there is the widest and severest, condemnation of many of the bills passed for the purpose of paying so - caJled investigating committee expenses. Many of these bills are monstrous. This adjective is not too strong to designate them. They are unconscionable. They are for things that could not have been needed by the members of the committees. In one instance a claim Is made for money enough to pay a, hotel bill for all the members of the committee for 100 days at $4 per day. This is very much the character of all the bills. The Governor cannot hut believe that the people of the State" expect him to veto these bill. That they incurred some expense is doubtless true, but because rfcey incurred some expense there is no reason why ten times the amount, or twenty times the amount as in some eases, ought to be appropriated out of the funds in the treasury. Governor Hastings' opportunity is a great one. Will he make ue of it? The recent President of the United States, Grover Cleveland, notwithstanding his retirement to Gray Gables, Buzzard's Bay, Massachusetts, is not content to remain quiet. He must be in evidence in some shape or other. His last appearance is in that of a letter written to his friend Paul KerscU aliout the National Democrats of Iowa, whom he hopes will not delay to exhibit to their fellows in every State "the - bright light of true Democracy." This in connection with the fact that Governor Boies has recently de - flared against the 1C to 1 principle of the Chicago convention, can no doubt be interpreted by the Democratic party of Iowa, as also by the Democratic party of the - United States, to mean that Grover expects that the Democratic party of Iowa, in their convention soon to be assembled, will correct some of the blunders of the Chicago convention, and will declare against fifty - cent dollars, so that all the Democratic convention that follow during the - summer may have a precedent to follow. Unfortunately Grover's position during the later months of his administration, on the subject of money, was not in harmony with what proved to be the position of the very large majority of the Democratic party. As an interpreter of Democratic doctrine it may be thought, therefore, by a great many of those who supported him in 1802, that he is not just the Democratic lexicographer that he ought to be. Mr. Bayard, too, a few days ago, indicated that he also expected a recantation of his party friends in. this country on the subject of silver. It is unfortunate that Mr. Bayard has, at this late day, chosen to get on to the platform of a common sense currency, because we believe tbflt he cannot help, but can only injure the cause. He is so unpopular that any position which he may take, however right, wiJl find opponents. His career in England made him obnoxious to possibly ninety - five per cent. of the American aeo - pie. The wish has been frequently expressed during the last four years that he would remain in England after the expiration of his official life. And in this connection, too, it is well to remember that a large portion of ithe hoi - polloi of the Democratic party are foolish enough to agree with Altgeld that English, money - loaners influence American financial policies. While this is not true it makes the remarktble zeal of the. former Delaware Democratic statesman and ambassador to England, in the interest of sound money, a damage, rather than a benefit. UNIONTOWN.

"our Important Armta In New York City Yesterday. New York. July 7. The United States secret service ants here made four more arrests yesterdfi? - in connection with the counterfeiting of about $500,000 worth of Costa. Rica bank note. The prisoners are Louis Hawsman.

Hausman is the foreman of the Spanish American Printing Company, this eity. Ricardo de Reques - ens is the president of the concern. The latter with Mrs. Reinnwui was arrested some time ago as the principal in the counterfeiting scheme, whose object it is said was to hefp oa a rerolutionary movement in Costa Rica. Hausmani was taken into custody in the printing office. Airs. Chevin is the mother - in - law of De Reques - ens. She was arrested at her home in Long Island City. She is a respectab'e and matronly looking person ami no one would ever suspect her of complicity in a revolutionary plot. Dohn. who is a" lithographer, is believed to have printed the counterfeits at his place of business. What Mora had to do with the case has not yet developed. NABBED THE WHOLE POST.

"No." said Thornton, "you're all under arrest." He marched them all to the station house on One Hundred and Twenty - fifth street. Sergeant Osborne let .them go. with an apology, and Thornton's record of forty - five arrests is not even envied by hi comrades. AWFUL PEST OF EAGLES. Wholesale Slaughter of Sheep by Birds of Prey. Pittsfield, Mass., July 7. Eagles have been making havoc among the sheep of the farmers in Lanesboro, who have pastures near the Laeomic Mountains, within three miles of this city. The eagles come down by the dozen and slaughter the sheep by wholesale. Lester B. Gunn lost a dozen or more. Sunday he saw six of the great birds tearing one of his flock to pieces, and when he went to drive them away they attacked him and he had a sharp fight with them before they flew away to the mountains. The eagles measure over four feet from tip to tip and are very bold as they' are left unmolested, there being a fine for killing them. They are of the great American variety and have nested in the rocky Laconic Mountains ever since the country was settled and how long before no one knows. They are rapidly increasing and Deputy Game Commissioner Smith, of this city, has written to the State authorities in Boston to see if permission can be obtaned to have them shot as birds of prey. Forty Tramps In a Wrecked Train. Pittsburg, July 7. A through freight train en route to Cleveland on the Pittsburg & Lake Erie Road, was derailed at Fallston, Pa., about 2 o'clock this morning and ten cars were precipitated over an embankment into the river.

The names of the injured are: John Kelly, Chicago: George Martin, Joliet, Ills.: Adam Kavich. Koppsville, Pa. They were removed to the hospital at New Brighton. The accident was caused by a broken flange. Trains were delayed several hours ly the wreck. Consolidation of Breweries. Pittsburg. July 7. Ten of the largest breweries in Allegheny county were consolidated yesterday under the name of the Pennsylvania, Brewing Company. The company is capitalized at $10,(KM),O0U. The management positively denies that there will be any attempt made to increase prices to retailers or consumer. The ole object, they say, is to better control the market and lessen expenses. A Giant Catawba Tree. Atglen, July 7. On the property of Mrs. Anna Fulton, a short distance north of this place, there is a large catawba tree, which is of unusual interest. It is known to be 180 years old, being mentioned in the old deeds and is. beyond doubt, much older. It is a giant in "size, measuring 220 inches in circumference. It is firmly rooted in rocks along the head of a spring, and yet looks as though it might withstand another century's blasts. WEDDING TRIP TO THE AJR.TICS. j Hi. and Mrs. Lee to Accompany the Peary j Polar jcxpemtion. Meriden. Conn., July 7. Miss Florence Leonard, of this city, was married yesterday to Hugh T. Lee, a member of Lieutenant Robert E. Peary's Polar expedition. The yonng couple will accompany Lieutenant Peary on his expedition, which sails from Boston in a few days. It will be the first honeymoon trip to the Arctic regions on record. This is not Mr. Lee's first expedition to the Arctic regions. He was a member of the expedition of 1893 - 05, and Lieutenant Peary's constant companion) in the long journey over the ice. Lieutenant Peary wrote of Lee as follows: "Lee is as full of sand as the shores of his native State." Lieutenant Peary expects to reach the Pole in 1898 by planting a series of Esquimaux villages, and this work will be begun this) year. Young Lee has a pian to use bicycles in crossing the hardened snows of the Arctic region, and this experiment will also be made. The expedition on which Mr. and Mrs. Lee will sjend their honeymoon will last from three to four months. Both Mr. and Mrs. Lee will remain with Lieu - tenant Peary through the entire expedition. The return trip will be made by way of Davis Strait, the Gulf of Cumberland and Fro - bi slier Bay. Mr. and Mrs. Lee will return to Meriden and make their home there. Mrs. Lee displayed great courage when she bade her friends good - bye. Uncle Sam and the miners. Cincinnati, July 7. A very important step was taken, here yesterday in connection with the coal miners' strike which puts the power of the United States against all violence or unlawful acts in at least a portion of Ohio. An order of the United States Circuit Court was made by Judge Taft upon a showing made by Myron T. Herrick and Robert Blickens - derfer, receivers of the Wheeling & Lake Erie Railway Company and of the Wheeling. Lake Erie & Pittsburg Coal Company, whereby the United States Marshal is directed to protect their miners at work and to prevent unlawful interference with the operation of their railway. The President's Mother. Baltimore American, There is a tender spot in every true American's heart for the President's mother. Her bearing during the campaign, and her beautiful solicitude after the crisis was past, rem'ain as precious memories with all who appreciate true womanhood and real manhood, and the President ties - himself closer to the people by his devotion to his 88 - year - old sweetheart in Canton. It was to see her that he went to Cantou to spend, the Fourth of July; and, while the happiness of the meeting must have been great, the misfortune of yesterday's accident was most deplorable." Mother McKinley fell over a piece of carpet and received an ugly wound. It was not dangerous, but it was bad, and the people of the country will regret it keenly. JUST A FEW SMILES. Disappointed.

At last, world worse lie crossed the sea And went to claii3i7ii3 love, but found That she was married and had three Uproarious children tearing round. Cleveland Leader. A Good Man.

Boston Budget. HIS LITTLE DINNER. "Your mistress has she como in yet?" he demanded eagerly, as the servant opened the door. "Xo, sir." Thus reassured he drew from behind his back a hand in which be held a big bunch of roses, which, if not very choice or artls tic in their sel ction, still spoke eloquently of n great, lo ins heart. His ayes sparkled, his fingers trembled with joy, when, in the dining room a moment later, he arranged bis flowers in a handsome vase, and with tender little pats and touches set them carefully In the center of the little round table. Then from his pocket he drew. a tiny jewel case and hid it under one of the two napkins. "Now," he murmured, smiling gayly, "now she may come in!" How was it all going to happen? Should be run to meet her, take her in his arms and call her "My beloved?" No; at first he would say nothing. He would seem quite indifferent, unconcerned; then, by accident, his arm would slip around her waist, and he would lend her as it were unconsciously to the dining room door, where he was going to enjoy the delight of her surprise and pleasure. Ah, at last a step outside! His joy must be disguised, lest she suspect something, and again he caught up the paper. "It is wired from London" "It is wired from London" but tho words danced beforohis eyes, red, blue, green he could not distinguish another letter a hand, her hand, was on tho knob! She entered, blond, beautiful, but looking out from the soft, luxurious warmth of her costly furs a littlo weary, a little di: beveled, ..iter an afternoon spent in visiting, shopping, 6wlft ridirg in a coupe. The "good day" she gave him seemed a littlo weary, too, the gesture a little petulant with which she drew off her gloves, threw buck her furs and dropped into a chair. "I am very late," paid she, "and we must dine quickly; the Daubignys are coming to tako lue with them to the opera. " He started, pained and surprised. "What, you are going out, dearest? I thought we were to spend the evening together hero in our littlo nest." She had thrown herself into a low, easy chair, with her tiny feet outstretched to the fire. "Really, my dear, you are very unreasonable," she answered indifferently. "It was very good of the Daubignys to invite me, and as I am not at all spoiled, you know, by visits to the theater, I accepted with pleasure. Still, if you wish to forbid my going you can. You are my master. The law is on your side." He dropped the paper wearily, all the brightness gone from his face. "There Is no need o be angry, dearest," he expostulated. "I had no thought or wish to deprive you of a pleasure. You reproach me, too, needlessly. You know that I am nearly always busy in the evenings. Tonight, however, I am free, and I was promising myself" "All right, I'll not go." "No, no, dear one; not at all? Come, we'll dine quickly. You'll go and make yourself beautiful, and when the Daubignys arrive" "I am not going, I tell you ! I no longer wish to go. " ' She flung off her furs and her dainty hat, and tossed them angrily on a cough. He watched her sorrowfully, miserably, all his Innocent joy gone, feeling himself aged and enervated by thia quarrel, that was so useless, ao unforeseen, so in - coin prehensiblo. She was seated now at the other side of the Are, her slender white hands clasped carelessly about her knees. He sought and sought for something to say to her, anything, no matter what, that would break the horrible silence, but nothing would come. "By the way," said she suddenly so suddenly that ho perceptibly jumped "I have invited Paul Bernard to dine with us tomorrow. He is very agreeable." "Ah!" "Why 'ah?' What do you say'ah' for?" "For nothing nothing ot all, dear. I said 'ah' just as I would say 'oh;' just as I would say" She had haughtily raised her pretty head, with its crown of golden curls, the haughty head of a little princess, but with its beauty just then marred by the hard, scornful curve of tho red Hps. "Perhaps you intend to be jealous and make scenes?" she persisted. He did not reply. His chin dropped on his breast dejectedly. Still this quarrel without reason or sense! Sho was not usually 60. And suddenly a great terror was born within him to clutoh and tear at the strings of his heart. This nervous excitement of his wife, this oversensitiveucss to unspoken words could it be the outcome of some hidden pain, some secret suffering, or God in heaven, crush the thought the remorse of a first fault? No, no, impossible! She was only tired, fatigued by paying calls, by the chattering of uncongenial acquaintances. Meanwhile she went on, exasperating herself more and more. "You might as well know, too, now as any time, Lucien, that when you begin that, when you take it into your head to be jealous, suspicious well, I know but one remedy for it divoroe!" He paled at the horrible word, for she had hurled it at him cruelly, brutally as a blow, looking him straight in the eye, her elbow resting on the mantelpiece, and apparently quite calm. Eight o'clock began to chime. In the street the rain still fell, a slow, mournful rain, sounding like a dlrgo. They passed into the dining room, she leading, he following like one in a troubled dream. In tho interval tho cozy little nook seemed all at once to have grown chill and formal. Discontent, bitterness, suppressed irritation, lurketl in tho air. Dinner, which had been served, bud grown oold on the pretty white table, the crisp littlo rolls had lost their tempting look, and there, in the midst of it all, the poor, forgotten bunch of roses bung its head with a look of woe, as if it felt itself a stranger, an uninvited, an unwelcome guest. Sho glanced at the flowers with a little careless, absent air. "Ah, roses!" said she. Then he replied, the sadness of his heart making his voice shake : "Yes, dear, roses. It is the anniversary of our wedding day." Wavorlcy Magazine. EAGLE KILLS A WOMAN. Was Working; In Bcr Garden When the Bird Attacked For. Mrs. Jane Mortenson was attacked by a great golden euglc in the suburbs of Honey Creek, la., recently, and so badly injured and frightened that shu expired from the shock tho following day. Mrs. Mortenson was 70 year old and was working in her garden In a stooping posture when the eagle swooped down and fastened its talons in her back and spread its broad wings in a desperate effort to carry her off bodily. The woman shrieked with pain and fright and began a desperate fight with the huge bird. The eagle showod no disposition to release its hold, although tho woman hit it a number of blows with her hoe by striking backward over her shoulders. The blows only seemed to madden it, nnd it buried its beak repeatedly in the llesh of her neck and face. She Anally struck the big bird on the neck and partially stunned it. She had become, however, too weak from fright, pain and exertion to kill the eagle, and it ilow away. Mrs. Mortenson fell on tho ground in :t faint and romnined there until she was found some timo ufter by members of the family. No one had seen tho encounter, j and it was some time before the old wom an recoverea sumcientiy to givetneiietnils. The bird bnd sunk its talons deeply into the" woman's back and had inflicted r.o - no terriblo wounds on her neck and face with its cruel beak. Owing to her age and frail condition her injuries proved fatal. Siio appeared to suffer as much from nervous shock as from her wounds. The eagle lias been seen in the vicinity a number of times. Several farmers h;.c gone gunning for tho bird, but have nee;' been ablo to got within rillo rungo of it. New York World.
