7. L The Trenton Sun ARTBUIt OEHLEB, Editor. IKEIIY)N, ILLINOIS. IT is stated that the struggle in Central America will soon be over. People are getting tired of it. Tipsy want decks cleared for a nice, fresh struggle. THE sun is again freckled with spots. The urophets will immedi- ately begin to predict as much trouble as will be consistent with the general upward tendency of things THEchameleon has been unchained. The courts could not bear the idea ot the little creature being deprived oi liberty. There are a number of in- nocent sailors on Alcatraz island who have been prisoners for more than a year. The courts seem to bear with equanimity the spectacle of their being deprived of liberty. THERE is trouble among the Chi- nese Sunday schools of Chicago, such as has already caused them to be closed in Denver. The tendency of the Oriental ' to make love to his teacher is a matter so serious as to excite apprehension. The tendency of his teacher to be made love to is also viewed with disfavor. IT is evident that there is a gen- eral movement in the greater cities and their suburbs, as well as in the large manufacturing centers, toward a revival of building. The motive for this is in the cheapness of ma- terial, the abundance of labor, the lowered rate of wages, and the plen- tifulness of loanable funds. THERE is not a man, woman or hild in this country who is not di- rectly interested in the question el wages ann immigration and who. if a moment's thought is given to the subject, cannot realize that without any restriction ten starving men are now coming to America to scramble for the one situation to be filled. 'i'be government seems dead to the situation. A WEALTHY Englishman offers te build a $190,000 extension to the Poets' corner in Westminster Abbey for the interment of future great poets. This would seem to necessi- tate measures of some sort for the production of great poets to inter in it. England's present supply is too meagre to supply a worthy laureate. At least that appears to be Mr, Glads tone's judgment, TftE prince of Wales lately ap- peared at an evening party in a dress coat which was not black. The London correspondents hwe done wisely to cable this fact to our shores. Albert Edward is the Ward McAlhster of England, and if he is going to wear pink, yellow or mul- berry swallow tails the fact cannot be kn0wn.too soon to Americans, who aspire to be, as Ward says, "in de push." TllE proposition for a "greater New York" is assuming practical shape. That is to say, it is reaching the stage where the quarrelbver a name will be in order. It would be impossible to imagine anything more likely to arouse the ire of a Gotham- its than the suggestions of people across the big bridge who will prob- ably insist that the conglomerate of towns be called "Yorkbrook," or. at least "New Brooklyn." THE plea of insanity or transitory frenzy cannot in any way be properly applied to the assassin of Prerider- gast. He is a mental imbecile belonging to a class that cam not be legally shut up in an Insane asylum. Clothed in their right minds, they are a con - slant menace t: the salety of the general public and it is only by pun- ishing them to the full extent of the law that others will be deterred from similar crimes. LORD DUNRAVEN has not relin- quished the hope that a British de signer may be able to turn out a yacht that will win the American cup. To thi{ end he and Lord Vol- verton will build a new craft during the year aud through the royal yacht squadron challenge for the trophy, so that the races wit] be sailed in 1895. The new yacht, Lord Dunraven says, will be seventy feet on the water line, a matter o rifles n feet less than the Valkyrie and last season's cup defender. I'r is an interesting fact that the first educational institution to draw the hue at football is the military academy at West Point, The war department maintains that its pur- pose is to make soldiers, not ruffians: to fi men for war and the stern duties of life, not to cripple and in- capacitate therm President Eliot has." relatively, the same idea. but i handicapped by a lack of authority and by the indisputable fact that fractured legs and weakened bodies are more serious impediments in the army than tn the pulpit, the count, |rig house or at the bar.

STILL WORKING ON THE TARIFF BILL. iUlriors That Good Progress B'as Been lade--Conlested Election Cases in the IF/ease--Con ferrlng About Dehrlng Sea. WASII]NGTON, March 20 There was no Sabbath quiet at the Capitol yester- day, because the democratic majority on the finance committee was there working over the tariff. Some of the discussion was over sugar some over the bonded period, some over the proposed abrogation of the Hawaiian rcciprocity treaty, but more of it over various schedules and the valuation of pack- ages in the administrative sections. The statement given out is that most of the differences were harmonized and that the majority will be able to present many of the completed schedules to the full com- mittee to-day. Chairman Voorhees is still confident that the revised bill can be put into the senate to-morrow afternoon, or at the latest Wednesday morning. Since the understanding has been reached that the bill is not to be called up till April  the repub- lican members will join with the ma- jority in getting it out of the commit- tee at the earliest possible date. Most of Senator Allison's amend- ments in the administrative sections have been adopted by the majority. There is still some contention over the valuation to be placed on packages or coverings. Senator Allison has pointed out that the provision in the house bill caused great frauds under the tariff of 1893, whereas the section of the Mc- Kinley law relating to customs have, it is said, been satisfactorily adminis- tered. HOT DEBATE PENDING. t Wlll Arise on House Contested Elee- tlon Cases. WASHINGTON, March 20.--As soon as the sundry civil appropriation bill is disposed of the house will take up the four contested election eases---the O'Neill-Joy case from the Tenth Mis- souri District, the Williams-Settle case from the Fifth North Carolina, the English-Hilborn case from the Third California, and the Wately- Cobb case from the Fifth Alabama. The O'Neill-Joy and English-Hil- born cases, which were both decided against the sitting members (Reps.) by strict party votes in the committee on elections, are the most important, and will require the major portion of the time. If the contested election cases are disposed of this week, which is hardly probable, as the republicans will doubtless insist upon a democratic quorum, the house will proceed with the consideration of either the military academy or consular and diplomatic appropriation bills. In the senate it is probable the forti- fications appropriation bill will be re- ported this week. There will be an effort to dispose of the government printing site, th Russian thistle ap- propriation, and the McGarrahan bill, and of a large number of special bills on the calendar. Supreme Court Full Bench Cases "%VAsHINGTON, March 20.---The Su- preme court of the United States will soon take up and hear arguments in those cases which it has been desired ha]l be heard before a full bench. The court has set the Indiana tax cases for a hearing before a full bench the 26th of March. Among the cases as- signed for hearing April 9 is the inter- state commerce commission against Brimson, from the northern district of Illinois; ex-Senator Edmunds appears in this case as the special counsel for the commission. There arc upwards of twenty more cases awaiting argu- ment before a full bench, but up to this time no steps have been taken to assign them for bearing. Hatch's Bill Soon to De Rerorted. WASIllNGTON, March 20.--Mr. Hatch and Senator Washburn say they are going to have Internal Revenue Com- missioner Miller before lIatch's com- mittee to-day to explain how the pro- posed tax couldbe collected. "The anti- option bill will be re ported this week." said Farmer [latch. "l will not say whether it will be 5onday or Satur- day, but it will be some day before next Sunday. We will not have to wait five or six weeks, by any nanner of means," Conferring Abot Behrlng Sea. V'ASHINGTON. March 20. Secretary Gresham and Ambassador Pauncefote are holding daily conferences over the Behring sea regulations.

Theunion depot wa discovered on fire about 12:30 o'clock Sunday morning in the second story, and spread with such rapidity that by the time the fire de- partment arrived the bleze lit up all the lower portion of the town. The entire structure, extending from Six- teenth to Eighteenth streets, was de- stroyed. The bilding was of stone and was owned by the Union Depot company. It cost $50,000; fully in- sure& Was With Perry In Japan. EW YORK. March 20.--Commodore Whiting, U. S.

DEATH IN THE WIND, A Terrihle Storm Sweeps the Longvlew, ]'exas, egion. LONGVIEW. Texas, March 20.--A de- structive storm passed over this place at 1 o'clock this morning, lIaiistones fell weighing fourteen to eighteen ounces. Chickens and turkcys roost- ing in trees were killed, while ducks, geese and hogs were pelted to death. At Lansing Switch the cyclone struck the house of John Caines, occupied by a family of negroes. The house was destroyed and six persons were killed. three mortally wounded and five ser- iously hurt. Old man Alex. Lester was found en- tirely nude, fifty yards from the house, dead. Alex. Lester, Jr., 18 years old, the mother, Sarah Lester. Robert Lester, Jasper Collins and Sissy Lester, 2 years old, were also killed. Sissy Lester was found several yards away in a treetop. Many other casualties are rc- ported. At Emery, the county seat of Rains county, the entire western portion of the town was ruined at .':30 Saturday evening. Miss Easter Alexander, Eras Henry, George Walker and the 4-year- old son of Henry Murray, colored, are the known dead. Tiree unidentified bodies were found north of Emery. The postoffice was used as a hospital and morgue. BRECKINRIDGE DIVORCE CASE. Nothing Known of "the Proposed kction of the Congressman's Wife. LOUISVILLE, Ky.. March 20.--If Mrs. Breckinridge intends instituting di- vorce proceedings against her husband, the defendant in Miss Pollard's breach of promise suit, the fact is unknown to her relatives in this city. Dr. Pres- ton Seott Mrs. Breckinridge's brother, is at present in Florida for his health, but Campbell Scott and other members of the family are in the city. Inquiries have elicited the informa- tion that the family of Dr. Scott knew nothing of Mrs Breckinridge's alleged intention to sue for a divorce. They say the first intimation they had of any suchintentim on her part was conveyed to them by the press dis- patches from New York. The Sc0tts are much annoyed by the light in which they stand and are seemingly greatly harrassed by the various rumors afloat concerning the former Mrs. Wing's actions. GOV. Altgelds Health. SPRINGFIELD. liL, March 20.--For some weeks there have been rumors of various kinds afloat here concerning the health of Gee. Altgeld, but they can not be traced to any authoritative source. The fact that the governor is away again from the capital and is now reported as being at Biloxi, Miss., so soon after his recent trip to Hot Springs has given to these rumors the apparent semblance of truth, and it is known that a member of his house- hold said some days ago that Gee. Altgeld's hfe will not be extended for many years, that it may not outlast the term of his governorship. Certain it is that his health is so precarious that he has almost decided to gve up his senatorial ambition. He has not now the vigor or the inclination to en- gage in the strife, lle has never fully recovered from the exhausting illness which prostrated him soon after the gubernatorial campaign of 1892. All the Bank Oflleials Arrested. EXCELSIOR SPRINGS, [O,, March 20.-- All the officers of the bank of Excel- sior Springs were arrested yesterday at instance of the school board. The bank held$3,400 of the city school funds when it failed. The only secur- ity the school board has for the funds is a bond composed of members of the bank. The rec'iver has not made a statement, but the bank is believed to be in a rotten condition. The bank carried about $S.600 in deposits and as yet no good assets are in sight. Inter-State Democratic Association. WASIIINGTON, March 20.--A meeting of clubs from the various executive de- partments was held yesterday to form an inter-state democratic association to co-operate with national and state democratic organizations toward the success of the party in coming cam- paigns.

Noble, wife of ex-President Itarrison's secretary of the interior, died suddenly at her home in this city yesterday afternoon.

Will Not Surrender da GamL Rio JANEIR0, March 20.--Judging from the course of events here it is thought the Portuguese government does not intend to honor the request made upon it for the surrender of Ad- miral da Gama. Yesterday the Min- dello and the Albuquerque, another Portuguese warshlp, having on board Admiral da Gama and seventy of his officers, put to sea. Wreaths on Sisters' Graves.
