Considerable opposition has developed to Robert E. Wright of AllentowD, his candidate for State Democratic chairman. Tbe anll-HarrUy people decided on Hon.

The last North Carolina legislature eleoied nine additional penitentiary directors all luflloniato. Gov ernor Carr, who is a Democrat, ignored tbe action of the legislature and appointed nine additional directors of hl9 own selection, all Democrats. TUB successful gambler is not ex* empffrom paying the income tax any more than other men who obtain large Incomes from lese quesslonable occupations. The Internal Revenue office has ruled that "gains from the pcol box, etc., should be included as Income for the year in which received and no deductions can be allowed for money lost on gaming." The many gamblers of the "sucker" variety who are not on the inside of the name will not suffer inconvenience by the de. clsion. THE figures made public by the National Wine and Spirits Association at their convention this week at Louisville concerning the responsibility of liquor for murder and suicide differ greatly from those of the temperance organizations. They are interesting, however, as the statement of the side which is not frequently heard on the matter. George Brown ol Louisville in a paper claimed that liquor was not responsible for nearly as much crime as was charged to it. He said that records showed that of 9,800 murders in the United Statei in 1894, only 756 were attributed to liquor and that of the tulcldei in 1694 only 281 out of 4,912 were due to liquor. The figures, It correct, are so damaging- to the cause of the Assooia* tion that It is a matter of surprise that they are made public. It is not sur~ prising that there is a popular demand for such restrictions as shall make such results Impossible. THE NEXT SENATE. Toor Pro*p««!t« for Any Sjw<rl»l Jatlon. The next senate will have thirty- nine democrats, sbc independents and forty-three republicans. There are eighty-eight senators, all told, so forty- five is the number necessary for a majority. The republicans, falling short by two, unless they can recruit their ranks from the six. independents, will not be able to pass any partisan measures of importance. Of course, on non-partisan questions and minor affairs it will always be easy to get a vote, but on party questions there •will be, in all probability, prolonged struggles. If the democrats and populists should unite, they would have a majority, but the union is in every way unlikely. What is more probable is tbat the republicans can win over— on some questions—two or three of these six independents. Peffer was a republican ere he became a populist; Stewart, of Nevada, would be a republican loved he not silver more, and Jones, of the same state, is of the same sympathies. Scratch Allen, of Nebraska, and he would prove a democrat; andiiutler, from North Carolina, is as democratic as Peffer is republican. Kyle, of South Dakota, is an independent, pure and simple, with no special predilections for either republicans or democrats. So these six sen? atsrs—Peffer, Allen, Stewart, Jones, Kyle and Butler—hold the key to the situation, and can harass either party, though unable to do any thing by themselves. But the forty-three republicans are not to be treated lightly. If they cannot do anything- for lack of two more allies, neither can anyone else do anything- without them. The situation looks rather hopeless as far as any special measures are concerned. Another element to add to the doubt of the senate is the probable admission of Utah as a state. She will most likely be admitted sometime during the next session, and will immediately send her two senators to Washington. This will raise the number necessary for a majority—making it forty-six. If the two senators be republican, there will still be no majority, for the republicans would lack one of the desired number. If they should add their strength to the democratic side — swelling the number to forty-one—the race would be closer. The republicans would have to win, three friends from j the independents or the democrats ' would need five. This is the situation of the senate—best Indicated in the ' one word "doubtful." With a strong republican bouse, a doubtful senate and a democratic president, the chances for any special legislation are exceedingly poor.—National Tribune. : DEPLORABLY WEAK. The F*«blo Foreign Policy ot r.bc Democratic Administration. It is quite likely that all of ihe many pending foreign complications will be amicably settled, but this result will bo due rather to the feebleness of the administration than to a proper support of our rights and interests on its' . „ „ part. Other countries understand veryrf J the"unwelcome fact that a large pro- well that our present foreign policy is. i.portion of the mills now ntwork would one of concession and conciliation be forced to stop, and the operatives ranted and essentially dishonorable. J Having given orders to domestic man- I ufacturers some months ago, in order to secure the goods they expected to • need, some buyers now cancel these : orders and refuse to take the goods because they find that they can buy at less cost similar foreign goods, whio.h, though not of as good quality, may nevertheless be made up and sold as readily, so that the consumer will be defrauded- This: is one side of the case, and the large importations of goods, mainly composed of shoddy, which are so destitute of wearing qualities that it is often easy to put the j finger through them, show plainly enough what sort of stuff some cloth: icrs arc preferring. But on tbe other side there is a desperate effort made by some of the manufacturers to rival the shoddy users of Europe in their own field in order to produce goods here as cheaply as those offered by foreign makers. Beyond a question some makers have been turning out poorer goods than they ever sold before, only because they have been forced to make such goods or lose their home market. Thus the consumer is robbed both ways, getting poorer stuff for his money when he buys such American goods as have deteriorated in quality, or such foreign goods as are sent here to capture this market. The trouble about wages springs from the general impression among employes that when manufacturers get orders they get profits. But in times like these that is by no means true. Very often a manufacturer has orders that only suffice to keep his mills at work part time, which, owing to the increased cost of production under such circumstances, lie cannot take without loss, unless lie cnn somehow contrive to keep the works fully employed. With that object, and in order to retain his market as far as possible, he accepts enough other orders 'to keep his works employed, though these other orders may not by themselves yield anything but a loss. The average for the whole output, lie calculates, may yield something above bare cost, with labor at the rate recently prevailing. But when the hands demand a restoration of wages to the rates paid before the prostration, tho naked question for the manufacturer is whether he shall mu his mills at a cer- 'tain and often a large loss or not run them at all. The wages and prices prevailing two and three years aco were so closely adjusted to each other that only moderate profits were realized in well-managed and successful mills. Tbe home competition was so sharp and severe that works which were not well managed rarely realized any profit, and a large-number of them were forced into bankruptcy or compelled to stop, even in those years of prosperity. The cost of wood in the manufacture is, on the whole, less than thirty per cent, of tbe cost of goods, so that the cheapness of the material by no means compensates, as to a great number of products in general use, for the decline which foreign competition and the undervaluations -of foreign goods make necessary. It is Highest of afl in Leavening Power.—Latest U. S. Govt Report Baking IN reply to a suggestion that the legislature he called in special session to correct the fee and salary law, Governor Matthews said: "I hope no one will ask me to inflict such a calam* ty on the people."—Pharos. It Is not at all likely that Governor Matthews made any luch discourteous remark. The legislature as a whole tre&ted him with consideration, while ils own Lieutenant Governor and hie egislature two years ago were disre. pectful at every opportunity. The egUlature just expired was far super- or to any for years. The haste re- julred was the cause of the usual rrori but that was the fault of the method. The disturbance at the close was participated hrce or four members of the WM caused by the Governor and wai greatly exaggerated. rather than of dignity, firmness and gelf-rcliancp.. The fact that various nations have ventured to assail oar interests, to discriminate against our products, to treat our wishes with, indifference, implies that they rccog- i nize the weakness of the administration and feel that they are taking no' risk in adopting such a course. They are not at all afraid of being called to account for their unfriendly actions. At the most, nothing worse can happen, they are satisfied, than a little diplomatic controversy, with the probability that in the end they will secure all they want. They know that the whole tendency of the policy of the j administration in international disputes is toward a peaceful solution at any cost, and they are quick to take advantage of the opportunity thus presented for the promotion of their own welfare and prosperity at our expense. The people of the United States certainly do not indorse this policy. They believe in peace, to be sure, and prefer the maintenance of friendly relations with all the rest of the world; but they do not believe in seeking such a result by tamely submitting to all sorts of slights and injuries, or by allowing the idea to prevail that they are more opposed to war than they are to humilia; tion. It is not to be supposed for a moment that they favor the theory of dealing with every intervening foreign difficulty in a spirit of unruffled kindness and systematic condescension. They. would like to see a little pluck and independence manifested in diplomatic affairs. The policy of avoiding war by showing a readiness to fight if necessary would suit them much better than this constant suggestion of a willingness to accept almost any terms in order to prevent hostilities. They are tired and sick, in short, of methods that bring reproach and ridicule \ipon the country, and put it practically at the mercy of scheming and intimidating nations. This is one of their greatest grievances against the Cleveland administration and the democratic party. They long for a display of courageous and resolute Americanism, and for proper assertion of the fact that the flag of their country means something more than peace at any price.—St. Louis Globe-Democrat.

The Speaker of the Kritlsh Home ol Commons About to Retlffc* The approaching retirement from politic-."' life of Arthur Wellesley Peel D. C. L., speaker of the British house of commons, is announced. The speak er was elected on the retirement of Sir Henry Brand in 1SS4, and has prcside( with skill and to the satisfaction of al parties ever since. Ho is the younges 1 son of the great Sir Robert Peel, and ARTHUR WEW.KSLET I'EEL. was born in 1S29. Educated :it Eton, and ut Balloil college. Oxford, he entered parliament in 1S05 for Warwick, and has represented that borough since then. After the dissolution of 1SSC he was proposed as speaker by Lord Randolph Churchill, and seconded by Mr. Gladstone. Mr. Peel is accounted the strongest speaker since the late Lord Everslcy. lie had a remarkable control over the house, and restored order in manv of the turbulent debates of recent years. The salary of the speaker is twenty-five thousand dollars annual ly, with an official residence, and the post is considered one of high social as well as political distinction, ifr. Peel has been offered a peerage. It will be remembered that this honor was declined by his father, who also left the expression of his wish that neither his widow nor his heir should accept any such distinction. SOCIETY'S FUNNY BLUNDER. Bow a Confailon ot Niitnos liroucht Btra- dred» to the Wrone Keccptlon. There are various things that con tribute to make a reception successful in Washington. One of the most unexpected, and curious factors to this end was developed at the farewell reception given by Representative White. of Ohio, a few days before the adjournment of congress. Representative and Mrs. .White had sent out invitations to nearly everybody in official circles there. When evening came, it was evident that the attendance was to be un- j usually largo. Now it happens that there were three people in Washington occupying high official positions who bore tbe name of White, and recipients of the cards had gotten the names very much mixed. Some, hastily glancing at them, took them to be the name of the one they knew best, whether it was Senator White, of California; Associate Justice White, of the supreme court, or Representative White, of Ohio. When the guests arrived the general misunderstanding which had prevailed" was the amusing incident of the evening. Representative and Mrs. White were not very well known in official circles, the health of the former having made it necessary that he. should take » trip abroad, which consumed a large portion of the last session of the Fifty- tliird congress. So it was that the guests generally expected to find the giver of the reception to be either the senator or the associate justice. Representative White enjoyed his mammoth reception •immensely. At one time in the evening, when the three officials bearing the same name were gathered together, he thanked both his namesakes for having so largely contributed to the success of the reception. "I have all tbe friends of the White family here," he remarked. "Some of the guests may have been disappointed, but I am not."

"Some of the earlier ninety-nine- year leases made in this city were written in inks that are in great danger of fading out long before the lease expires," said a microscopist and expert in handwriting. "There is not an ink on the market but will fade seriously in thirty years. My business requires me to be informed, and I purchase samples of every ink I hear of and submit them to microscopic and chemical examination. I base what I have said on the results reached in those examinations. The inks made thirty or forty years ago were not so good as those of the preceding three centuries, for many documents written in the latter are extant, the lines in which are clear and bright. The inks of the present day are poorer than those of a generation back, because in this age of adulteration nothing escapes tne adulterator. The same ingredients are used, but in a weakened form. Iron and gases tnat are aeveiopea oy me conai- tions act directly on the inks and' hasten their disappearance. If in the middle of the next century a future biographer wants to examine tho correspondence of anyone living to-day, 16 isn't unlikely he will find in it pieces of paper that once was covered with writing which has passed away, leaving- only pale faint lines. As to leases, probably there is some understanding; of these facts, for instruments that have a long time to run are now printed." (WOriAN'S FRIEND.) is the BEST REMEDY lor GIRL, WIFE, MOTHER.
