TItE fact that the match monopoly shows net' profits for last year of $1,300,0)0 indicates that even if matches are made in brawn the money in the busiuess is principally made down here on earth. WASItINGTON, which was a preten- "tious candidate for the world's fair three years ago, is going to get one of the big California trees which were exhibited at Chicago. That is a good deal better than nothing. AN asylum that will permit a murderous lunatic to escape and then fail to inform the police may fairly expect to b condemned by the pub- lic in no measured terms. What is the matter with all our asylums? Is lunacy contagious? And do the keepers catch it from the inmates? WHAT is known as the West End railroad in Boston does not have its rails looped together as are most of the single trolley railroads of the cQuntry.

IN a case in Texas, brought against the WeStern Union telegraph com- pany, it has been decided by a United States judge that mental anguish is not an element of actual damage and that no indemnity can be recovered on that plea. In other words the leaden-footed messenger boy can go on inflicting the reflnemeut of sus- pense upon the public with none to molest or make him afraid. A FIRE in a museum at Passaic. N.

TF New York press is grievously wrought uo over the audacity of Editor Astor. ex-Ameriean, in send- ing over a callow young feminine person to write up this country. Un- doubtedly she has said a good many foolish things, but perhaps no more than have been perpetrated by the young people of the New Yor] press, who are sometimes called upon to treat American subjects from the distant Manhattan island. EARLY One recent morning Frank Wyatt, a Chicago newspaper man. riding in a street car drew his re- volve# and made two thieves give back the goods they had just taken from a fellow passenger. In uoing this he was guilty of carrying con- caled weapons, breach of the peace, vault with intent 'to kill, and, so far as the thieves are concerned, with grand larceny and highway robbery. Which illustrates one difference between law and justice. IF those persons who are forever being disturbed about seeing visions and dreaming dreams would but give a little heed to their diet they would stoner become less apprehensive as to their futur The ominons char- ter of a dream is quite often gauged by the size of the piece of mine pie or portions of lobster 8ala or clam chowder consumed just before resorting to the couch.

Income Tax Is to Be Discussed Me- Millen' Scheme Will Cause a Flow of Oratory in the House--Senate to Talk ou BawaiL WASIIINGTON. Jan. a0.--There will now be a cessation for a brief neriod of tariff talk in the house, and the members will address themselves for three days to the mysteries and per- plexities of the income tax question. The McMillen .bill upon this subject will be submitted as an amendment to the Wilson customs bill. so as to unite in one measure all the schemes for raising revenue asid from the sales of bonds. The general debate on this proposition will occupy to-day and to-morrow. Wednesday the bill will be considered under the five-minute rule for amendments The generalde. bate will be opened by Mr. McMillin of Tennessee. the author of the meas- ure. Speeches are expected from Bland, ltall, and Tarsney of Missouri. Cox of Tennessee. Williams of illinois, Pence. the democratic populist of Colo- rado. and others in support of the in- come tax. ]fr. Pence will propose to amend the bill by the adoption of a graduated tax on incomes, running from 2. to 10 per cent. which, he be- lieves, will produce over $100.000.O00 of revenue, instead of $30.000.000. the es- timate of the pending bill. After the duty shall have been taken in committee of the whole Wednesday afternoon, on making the whisky and income tax schemes a part of the Wil- son bill, the latter will be ready to be reported on Thursday to tbe house for ratification. Before the final vote is taken, however, Messrs. Reed. Wilson, and Crisp will address ihe house on the general subject of tariff and revenue, their text being the perfected bill. It is likely that a vote will not be reached until quite late Thursday and possibly not before Friday. When the committee of the whole house arose at the expiration of tbe session Saturday afternoon, but one amendment proposed by the committee on ways and means remained unacted on. It proposed to increase the duty on barley and barley malt from 20 and 30 per cent ad valorem respectively, to 30 and 35 per cent. It failed of adoption because of lack of time and Chairman Richardson said he should hold that it was pending, but whether or not that would be the judgment of the spealeer of the house he could not say. Two or three of the defeats thc committee have sustained have been notable, but they retrieved one of them Saturday in re- establishing the time when the free wool and manufactured wool schedules should go into effect. The house had decided in favor of Representative Tom L. Johnson's motion to have both go into operation the day of the approval of the bill. Saturday the ways and means committee got the dates re- stored as proposed by them--free wool, Aug. ]. 94: manufactured wool. Dec. 1. 1894. Another defeat from which the committee did not re- cover resulted in placing all sugar-- raw and refined--on the free list. and abolishing the bounty at once. This was the most important ir,cident in the consideration of the bill. AII attemptsto take iron ore, coal. and lumber from the free list were unsuc- cessful. Among the more important changes effected in the text of the btll were: Putting plows, rakes, disk and tooth harrows, thrashers, cotton-gins and harvesters on the free list ,.,verthe cmnmittee's objection). Taking crude opium containing con- taining 9 per cent and over of mor- phine from the free list and fixing the duty at $1 a pound. Increasing the duty on morphine and morphia salts from 50 cents to 7a cents. Striking out the reciprocal clause from the petroleum paragraph. FEDERAL ELECTIONS AND HAWAII. Subjects That Will Occupy the Atten- tion of the Senate This Week. WASItINGTON..]an. ?0. The senate will probably wind up the election law debate this week. so far as the republi- cans are concerned, by the conclusion of the speech of Mr. (;handler of New Hampshire and two further addresses by Mr. Hawley of Connecticut and Mr. IIiggins of Delaware. But both the senators from Tennessee will take oc- casion to reply to Mr. Chandler'e at- tacks on election methods in their state before the debate ends. Hawaiian relations are still an open question in the senate. The resolution reported xtrom the committee on for- eign relations declaratory of the sense of congress in the matter is still pend- ing. Notwithstanding the fact that the report was almost unanimous it appears that some of the republican senators, following in the lead of Mr. Allison, find the first section, declaring against an- nexation at the present time, is ob- jectionable to them. So it may be that the resolution, which at first promised to pass speedily, will con- tinue to occupy the attention of the senate for some time, and particularly is this probable if an issue is ramed by the moving of the Dolph amendment requesting the recall of Minister Willis or by Mr. Vest's insistence upon his amendment materially modifying the language of the section touching an- nexation. Republicans Will Not Caucus. majority protocols to execute its com- mission," said Mr. Burrows. "We recognize that it would be futile for us to attempt to execute any affirmative policy. We have offered amendment but they have either failed of recog- nition or have been defeated by the majority. What need. therefore, is there on our side of the house of a policy? We will quietly wait while the other side furnishes the policy." Bidding for Bonds Not o Lively. WaSlIIOTON. Jan. 0. Theaction of the house committee on the judiciary in reporting the Bailey resolution favorably has had the effect of deter- ring any large bids so far from being received for the new bonds. The action, too. of the Knights of Labor in seeking an injunction against Secretary Carlisle to prevent him from issuing bonds has had a disquieting effect. Secretary Carlisle will. while in New York, assure all prospective bidders they need have no fears on any score about bidding for the bonds and that they will be amply protected. Mr. Feekham's Nomination. WASIIINGTON. Jan. 30. News from New York is to the effect that IIill's friends are confident the nomination of Peckham will not be confirmed. It is also given out there that th l)resi - dent is ready to make this struggle with Hill a fight to a finish and that he will withhold nominations until the senate determines what it will do in the Peckh am affair, which means in effect that the Presidellt is to make of this a test case. DOCTORS AGAIN. Cannot Decide as to tile Cause of Cronin's Death. CmCAOO. Jan. 30.--Medical expert testimony took Saturday's session of the Coughlin trial. Dr. ' Hcktoen. the first witness, swore he was unable to testify whether Dr. Cronin had died from kidney disease or from the wounds found on his head. This farce of expert testimony is expected to ter- minate early this week. At the con- clusion of Dr Hektoen's examination, court adjourned to 10 o'clock Monday morning. Coughlin himself will be the chief witness for the defense, and the state is rather curious to know what sort of a story he will tell. The absence or presence of a motive for Coughlin to desire the death of Dr. Cronin will be an important point t o be brought out in his examination, and when it shall appear that he was a member of the committee that tried Dr. Cronin, it is difficult to see how the investigation thus begun is to be limited. From the rate of progress made since the defense began it may be inferred that the last day of the trial will not be far from March 1. Thede- fense is confident of an acquittal or a disagreement of the jury. Faihng in this they claim enough errors have been made in the ease to insure the Supreme court granting a new trial. when the result would be the same as in the event of a disagreement in the jury. The case would never be tried again. In any event, Coughlin feels safe from all harm greater than a year or two longer in posen. DOES NO1" WANT BONDS. Holman of Indiana Thioks the Country Wlil Do Well Without Them. WASHINGTON', Jan. 30--Mr. Holman of Indiana is not in accord with the administration on the bond question. He intends soon to introduce a resolu- tion in the house reciting the fact tnt there is no justification for increasing the interest-bearing debt of the gov- ernment, but that the condition of the nation's finances demands a retrench- merit in the expenditures. When it was proposed during the panic of 4873 to authorize the sale of bonds to re- plenish the treasm\\;y, Congressman Holman put through the house a reso- lution similar in tone to that which he is preoaring. "Following the idea of retrench- ment," says Mr. Holman,"the congress following, the panic of 187 made sweeping reductions in expenditures. The people were pleased and there never was another demand for the sale of bonds until the recent agitation which resulted in Secretary Carlisle calling for bide" Talmagc May Decide to Stay.

At each meeting the church debt was discussed and it was stated that it was believek if the debt was wiped out Mr. Talmage would withdraw his resignation.
