The first thing on the program Was dinner, and such a feast as was given by the ladies is seldom partaken of. A fine literary program was well carried out. Eev. Whitfield opened with prayer. A short address by ' Rev. Smith, giving couruge^and^ counsel to the school for though'their work might appear small, yet great results might be reaped from it. Rev. Whitfield gave an address full of wit and sound sense, and urged upon all the need of upholding our public schools as the bulwark of our country. The Sunday school scholars f uliilled their part in a most satisfactory manner. Mention might be made of the beautiful rendition of the soldier's thought of "Home and Mother," by Miss Carol Nelson. It affected many and particularly the old soldiers. Mrs. Wolfe read a humorous selection in an exceedingly imitative style. A song closed the exercises and a social time was indulged in. Many thanks are due Mr. •and Mrs. Hunt for their hospitality and generosity, as they did everything in their power to make it pleasant for the •school and its friends. Thanks are also due Mr. Nathan Pine for the able manner in which he conducted the exercises. ONE AVHO WAS THERE.

While it comes .a little late it will interest Mrs. Garfield's friends here: GRANDMA SIMPSON. Mrs. Sally Baker Simpson, widow of •the late Albro Simpson, died Monday morning, August 4, at the residence of 'her son-in-law, Justin Snow, 1884 Euclid avenue, where her home had been i.or some years past. Mrs. Simpson was born in Luzerne county, Pa., March 10, 1796, before the death of the first president of the United States. Her husband was born in 1800 and died in 1883. 'They celebrated their golden wedding, Nov. 4, 1874. The funeral was held on Tuesday at 5 p. m. Mrs. Simpson had five children all of whom survive her, and all but •one were present at her funeral, as follows: Louisa— Mrs. Justin Snow; Rev, B, H. Simpson, Augusta, Mich., not 5 resent; Miss II. M. Simpson; Almira , S.-^Mrs. L. K. GarQeia, of Algona, Iowa, and J. W. Simpson, of Harkness •avenue. The funeral service was conducted by Rev. Dr. Ladd, pastor of the HSuclid avenue Congregational church, of which Mrs, Simpson was a member. The service was opened by singing the first and last verses of the hymn commencing "How firm a foundation ye saints of the Lord" followed by prayer by Rev. Dillon Prosper. Dr. Ladd read Scripture selections, and the quartet sang "How blest the righteous when be dies" after which, D.r. Ladd gave a "brief outline of the life of the departed, making special reference to her early life in a new country, where opportunities for Christian culture were very meagre, but showing that the love of Christ in the heart, with the purpose to inow duty by thestudy of Go4's word, would develop a beautiful Christian life.

The foreigner says the Yankee never undertakes to manufacture a thing without getting up a newer process. That is true. You enact this duty upon tin plate and yon will not see probably 100 pounds of it made as they make it in Europe now, by going around and clumsily dipping the plate into pickle two or three or four times. You will soon find a machine that will travel those plates through from one bath after another. You will find it done by machinery. You will find the process improved and the price of your tin brought down. The Yankee contractor never undertakes to make 10,000 of anything in the world without having ten or fifteen or twenty workmen in the shop all the while studying as to how they can do it better and cheaper. In the language of the Englishman, the American invents as the Greek sculptures or the Italian paints. It is genius, and we have had the great statesmanship and common sense to foster all this by an admirable patent law, which has been as cheap as dirt compared with the patent laws of foreign countries. Now, give us tv chance. Put up a fence for a time; keep out not a legitimate competition. I do not care if the margin is so close that some of the foreign goods get in, perhaps so much the better; but it is no fair fight when people are compelled to work for ten or fifteen or twenty cents a day in other countries. I hold it is worth while that we should establish those industries in this country. SENATOR PADDOCK. During the last decade the farmers of our state have more than doubled their own wealth and the wealth of the state. They have seen their farms appreciate in value, often a hundred fold, and their crops find ready sale at remunerative prices. Overproduction, resulting from want of proper diversification, unwise haste in marketing the products of their farms, local partial failures of crops, due to caprices of nature over which neither they nor a protective tariff have any control, have at times decreased the returns of their labor and lessened the annual rewards of their toil. But I affirm, with the confidence of intimate personal knowledge, that no class engaged in building up its fortunes by personal labor has prospered in a fuller degree during the past decade than the western farmer; has been enabled to earn more, or to save more, or, in proportion to capital invested, has secured larger interest returns on its principal. However unremunerative agriculture may be in a seetion drained of its inhabitants through emigration from its worn out soil and stony hills to our rich western prairies, the mere fact of reduced populations in such portions of the east and south is the highest of tributes to the paramount and splendid advantages offered by the western farm. The well settled valleys and prosperous uplands of my own state, dotted with generous farm houses, to which hundreds ,of thousands of acres of corn wave welcome even in this year of universal drought and disaster in the corn belt; the hundreds df thriving villages and towns, the churches, the handsome institutions of higher learning, and the thousand and one humbler little school houses on the hill tops—each and all the product of barely thirty years of settlement in an agricultural state—are a sufficient denial of these extraordinary statements as to the desperate condition of Nebraska farmers. I repudiate them utterly on behalf of the agriculturist of the state which in part I have the honor to represent here. There can be no disaster in Nebraska as the result of a protective policy properly adjusted and applied. SENATOR STEWART. Mr. President, I think that of all countries on earth Canada should be the last to be favored by this country in our protective tariff. She discriminates against everything that comes from our country. Take agricultural machinery. An import duty of 85 per cent, is levied by Canada on machinery from the United States, while all other machinery has to pay a duty of from 10 to 25 per cent. Canada puts a duty on coal oil especially high, 100 per cent,; also on anthracite coal We have no duty on anthracite coal, while they have a high duty on it, fifty-sis cents a ton. And so on through the whole list, which I have not time in my five minutes to recite. When we come to lumber we have no duty on logs. If tea and coffee go from this country into Canada they .have to pay a duty of 10 per cent, ad valorem. 1 have a long list of discriminating 1» to their people ana to tneif government, and keep it there for the benefit o2 the Canadian people and the Canadian government as against our people, who take this tariff off. It will not benefit the people of this country one iota, be- cansd they will put on all the burden it will biftrj and come into our market, and if yott take off any part of the burden they wilt put it on again, because they will pw it at a point where they can compete' with the American market. There is,too use in oppressing onr people for the benefit of strangers. ': SENATOR MITCHELL. Listening to some of the speeches made on the 'other side of the chamber, one not properly informed, not conversant with the bill nnd its provisions as they really are, would naturally conclude the effect of the passage of this bill would be to largely increase taxation, advance customs rates all along the line, swell the annual revenue and oppress the people. If such were, in my judgment, to be the effect of the pending bill it never could receive my vote. Such, indeed, is not the pending measure. And in this connection it may be properly stated that never, perhaps, in the history of legislation has there been such studied, deliberate, persistent attempt to misrepresent any proposed legislation—its nature, character and probable effect—such determined, yet poorly concealed, efforts to deceive and hoodwink the masses of the people as there has been in reference to the pending bill. The bill is precisely what it purports to be—a bill to reduce the revenue and equalize duties on imports—the effect of which will be, if enMcted into law, most unquestionably to reduce the revenue to the extent of very many millions of dollars, and to equalize the duties on imports so as to operate more equally and fairly in reference to all the industries of the country. SENATOR DOLPH. As I understand the constitution, when the thirteen original states adopted it they agreed that we were to b$ one nation, and the right to regulate foreign and interstate commerce was to be giVen to congress, to a body which was to exercise its authority over the whole country and over all the people, over every foot of soil and over every citizen. Therefore the duty of congress in legislating upon this question is to legislate for the good of the whole. It is a mistake to say that what injures Oregon does not injure Maine, or that what injures Maine does not injure Oregon, or that what injures Maine and Oregon does not injure Florida and Louisiana. You cannot injure one of the states of the Union or destroy an enterprise or a business in one of the states of this Union without injuring the whole; and all the talk about whether the tariff on this or that will be beneficial to this state or that is foolishness. Sir, I am in favor of protecting every industry of the United States, and all alike, so fax as I am able to judge of what is necessary. 1 am not ready to join the corps of sappers and miners in this body who are seeking to undermine the wall of protection which keeps out the,cheap labor products of .other coun- tries'from this country. ..'/:''/ SENATOR SPOONER. 1 have sat nero day after day, week after week, voting fair protective duties upon articles in which my state and my people have no direct interest, keeping in mind, the larger interest of the whole country and of its labor, not limiting my view to the lines of the state which sent me here. The people of Wisconsin make, for example, no pottery, so far as I know, but that is a great industry in New Jersey, employing vast capital and labor. I have not been willing, Mr. President, that it should be overslaughed either as to that capital or as to the interest of that labor by throwing down the barrier which alone prevents an influx of that product made by capital carrying a lower rate of interest and labor earning infinitely less in other lands. The people of Wisconsin have no direct interest in the duty on rice, but I voted for a duty to protect the rice farmer in the general interest in its relation to the system tinder which we have prospered, and in which I believe. If the principle is to be abandoned, however, by each one whose local interest does not seem to be directly subserved there will not long bo much of it left. A FREEJflFT! A Good Farm Journal.

They have a duty of $1.01 per thousand feet. Senators will remember that two years ago last spring a raft of logs came into this country known as the Joggins raft, and it paid $3,080 export duty to Canada, They have another metho4 of getting even with us on lumber. Most of the lands belong to the, public, and they charge a stumpage of $5 per square mile and a royalty of 5 per cent, on all sales. Now, if yon put lumber q» the free list the Canadian government, according to its uniform practice, will add to this royalty and put on an export duty, so that you will get no gain whatever from it. You will injure the million people engaged in the business for .the benefit of the Canadian people and the Canadian government. It is a square give away of tb» rights of the American psopte.

The splendid vote given to Speaker Reed Sept. 8 means more than anything else that Maine most heartily supports Messrs. Reed, McKinley and their associates in giving the country the best tariff legislation we have ever had. The campaign was really in Mr. Eeed's district, though the vote of all the rest of the state was of course influenced. The following figures are most significant. During the fourteen years that the First district of Maine has Beat Thomas B. Reed to congress it has done so by the following vote: 1870 Plurality 1,093 1878 * Minority 1880 Plurality 117 1882 .,....,.,. Elected on general ticket 1884 Plurality 9-35 1886 Plurality 1,188 1888 , , Plurality 8,433 1800..., ,... .....Plurality ,.4,600 The plurality to 1888 was up to that year the largest ever given Mr. Reed, and yet this ye^r—ail off year—w^th no material increase in the voting population, against the greatest effort of the Free-traders, against their money and their cry "Anything to beat Reed," he is retivroecl % the magnificent plurality of 4,509. We congratulate Mr. Reed on this most significant victory. We congratulate Mr. McKinley and Mr. Lodge, who contributed so much to the result. We congratulate the country at large on the bright prospect ahead for the prosperity which is sure to follow the tariff bill which has now passed the senate and which will soon bear tbepi-esi- New Goods.
