I THE calls for the stale and'eongres- sional conventions tire made and are published to-day. Wo should have favored an earlier date for the congressional convention this year, to enable the candidate te moro fully work the district. Wo notice most of the congressional conventions are being hold in June or July and certainly this district needs as mnoli work as any in the state. But if the right man is nominated perhaps the time will bo ample. Now that ex-governor Larrabee is out of the race wi sincorely beliovo that Hon. S. I). Zeigler is the strongest man in the district, but if it shall be deckled that anoiher can poll more votes we are for that man. We have no friends to reward or enemies to punish. All we want is the nominee who o»n <;et t liore. LAST Saturday's trains from lliu nisi, were demoralized by the washing out of the bridge at the mouth of Turkey river.

During tho brief porlod, less than one year, the tin-plato duty has been operative, it appears that already from 60 to GO tin-plate factories have been located, niue coming from Wales. When the required 400 shall have boon erected •00.000,000 in wages will be saved to Amorioim .workingmon—a sum winch hitliorto has gone U British hands.

ACCOSDINO to » recent census bulle- 'tin, the combined state and local debt* of tbo;United States lu 16-30. amounted to f 1,186,210,442, au Inorease of nearly '$12,000,000 since 1880. The average per oapita was, however, ttduoed from $1140 to 118.18. The debt of New York: ilatc'-ls about one-sixth of the 'whole. The largest debt per capita is •thtiV-.of ,th«"District of Columbia ($86*86); ofthe sta'tes tho largest aver•age per head'is Maryland ($40.48), and the smallest in West Virginia (W.82). 'The state debts in 18.8$ amounted to •288,997,889,'tbe county debts to n4l ,r 548,045, the municipal debts to $724,468;060, 'and the school district debts to ^86,701,948.

[Sutu Resistor.] Speaking of the splendid reception given to MeKinler and Head in the Minneapolis convention, n prominent ' democrat, remarked that the Amuii.'nn people, after all has been said, loi « ' pluck aud courage. They admire a ' man for backbone Referring to tho Reed rules, the same democrat said that he believed they were right. Filibustering ought to be no part of con- 1 grossional proceedings. Tho Heed rules are bound to be the rules that will govern the congresses of the future. If the present democratic congress had adopttd the same rules the party which tkey represent would have been in a batter position for victory at the polls in November. Every day that has been spent in filibustering in the present congress has cost the domu- cratl* party hundreds of votes. There <s no doubt but that a great many honest democrats feel the same way. Thoy caanot endorse all that was done by Reed's congress, but they can at least admire the courageous way in which the business of the country was transacted. Nover in tho history of the country has an equal amount of business been done so expeditiously. They seo that the 61st congress was a eoogiess of business men and business methods, aud admire it accordingly. Whatever democratic papers and democratic resolutions may say about the Reed rules, there is'no'doubt but that they have met with the approval Of tho business sen.se'of the country as well as the npproval of the Minneapolis convention. They aie the rules that will govern'the'congresses of the future. The congresses of the future to deserve tho support and approval of the people miut be business bodies, not gatherings 'Of 'politloal 'ttlibusterers. The Reud 'rules set that pace and the people are going to insist that it -shall be maintained. Ilow to bo n >*lrn Follow. Alwnys try and adapt yourself to ;lri'\i:»vi,ances.

WALES MOVES WESTWARD. (Minneapolis Tribune.] On the day of the adoption of the republican platform of protection in the Minneapolis oonventlon one of the largest tin-plato companies of Lianclly & Swansea, Wales, announced the completion of negotiations for the removal of its 20 mills te Uas City, Indiana. The plant is valued at $1,000,000, covers CO aoras aud employs 2,000 men. 'Work begins at once and the mills aie to bo constructed within three months. The result Is a, triumph of the MoKin- ley law. The Welsh proprietors so admit. .• ; Oa the following day, the day of the nomination of Harrison and Reld, the International Tin Plate and Refjnlng Company was organised in Chicago. The head of this concern also is the S roprietor of large Welsh interests, [e says ef the situation: "Wales produoos99 percent of the tin-plate of Great Britain, and 76 per cant of this oomes to the United States. To meet this demand 400 mills will be needed, as against 60 or 60 now located In the United SUt*s. The value ef the tin consumed in this oountry annually is about $60,000,000, and. the labor employed in its production equals $20,000,000.

Lord Lytton was seated one day at ilnnor next to a lady whose naino was Oirch, and who, tradition says, was oeautiful If not over-intelligent. Said she to his excellency: "Are you acquainted with any of the Olrcho s?" Replied Ills excellency: "Oh, yes, I tnowsomo of them most Intimately while at Eaton; indeed, more Intimate- .y than I cared to." "Sir," replied tho •ady, "you forget that tho Itlrches are relatives of mine." "And y'ut tlioy cut ne," said the viceroy; "but, nnd ho smiled his wonted smile, "l have never felt moro Inclined to kiss the rod than I do now." Mrs. lilrch, sad to say, did not see the point, and, so .the gossips have it, told her husband that his excellency had insulted her. REPUBLICAN STATE CONVENTION.

In "Marl brouek" the death and burial of Queer Anne's groat eaptaln are burlesqued, and, in what some French critics hav< considered it scathing satire, the disasters of lllcnhcim and Uamillles are believed to havo been avenged.
