THE INC A PA UL ES.
In two months more this ineligible ilo
nothin congress will have vaui.-hul
from the e:itth, and the country in:.j
hope never to see nnothcr like it. On Sat
unl.iy, aiiin. demoentic lemlors foulit
nil (lay to prevent anything lie in; ln ,
aiul their only excuse is thut th. y weie
anxious to prevent mischief. If they in
sist upon it, no one hns the riht to cli-n
that thW tlemoi-Tiilic house is inc:i;ilU
of doing anything without loin mis
chbf. Hut each day thnt pusses must
lessen the ch.inc? of uccouiplishin eithei
of the many iui)ort:int or needful tilings
Which it is the clear duty of this congress,
tw accomplish. If its failure or refusal
makes au t-itra session unavoidable, the
responsibility t ill be placed by the peo
ple where it belong.
Two months of hard work and the
present house has nt shown itself capa
ble of working bard at any time would
uot suffice to accomplish all that ought
to be done. There has been an incompe
tent do-nothing house for so many years
that needful public business has f;dhn
far behind. The question whether nn
extra ertihn is desirable or politic is
therefore not unlikely to be solved by
such failure of legislation as to make it
necessary. Even if no fcreat appropria
tion bill should tail, there are now man
measures of such importance that it
would be unsafe to defer action on then
for another year, and the more dangerou:-
because, with the Iigiuc very, close!
divided, and with democratic leaders in
clined to filibuster on the sliVJ.'tCit oc
casion or no occasion, it would be by n
means certain that auy wise measure
could be passed within two or tbre
months after tho next house should bi
Whether one looks at the Interstatt
law Irom the point of view of the western
producer or trader, or from that of tin
eastern shipper or investor, in eithor cast
it is equally cvideut that the law needs
to be modified. It is defeating the pur
poses of those who urge its enactment,
and yet the majority in the present house
is tolerably pu re not to confess, by such
amendments as sire needful, that tht
leaders who framed the measure were in
competent. Still bss is that body likelx
to eliminate from the; liw those fiatun
which threaten tho solvency of r.rin
railroad companies, without any rurivs
ponding hem-tit to producers or shippirs.
But there is reason to hop that the nc-v.
congress, composed 1-ss largely of dema
gogues of the democratic strij e. wouki
have the sense and the courage to do
something that ought to i-. done. I is
only the truth that results mre serious
than many imagine results even mine
hurtful to western business men t:nt;
farmers than to investors are likely tt
come within another year, if the act in
its prtsent blundering form remains in
force so long.
Much has Icu said of the importance
of reducing the revenue, and the situation
has been modified only liy the extrava
gant appropriations of the present con
gress. By the time this short session has
passed the appropriations for another
year should be made, it is true, but then
is a strong probability that a partisan
majority will be disposed to m:ke le.-s
liberal provisions for the lirst year of
President IIarrin"s Administration than
wn made for the last year ot Presidei t
Cleveland's. A change in the nmouut of
revenue may therefore become essential,
aad not some time next year, after mis
chief has been done, but before the next
fiscal year begins. Unless some change
is made at the present session, of which
there is now little prospect, this
matter nlons may render an extia
fi ssion expedient. But there arc tunny
otlu-ri; the admission of states, the pre
partion for the censu. the provision for
fortign mail service, the provision for
tnore h.iuest elections. Delay s on all
these matters will involve some "Serious

Vh n the great republican victory of
November lasf w as achieved, the individ
uals now representing the United States
government at foreign courts, were prac
tically culled bar-k, and after the 1 tit of
M uch they will no longer Wo allowed to
linger upon the diplomatic horizon. The
people have declared that thfj policy of
honoring confederates and copperheads
with such positions sh-dl be discontinued,
so there is nothing left for them to do
but to pack their trunks and buy their
tickets for their native land. Those two
sedat; and venerable sympathizers with
the rebellion, Kdward J. Phelps anil
Kohf-rt M. McLiiie, will soon vanish
from I. n. Ion and Paris, and (Jeorge II.
iVndleti.n will retire from Berlin and
Uiehard B. Hubbard will disappear from
Japan. The inebriated B. W. llanna,
will wander home from Buenos Ayers.
in short, they will come from all quarters
of the globe. The country will welcome
these retiring characters with feelings of
profound relief and thankfulness
During their absence it has been impossi
ble for any patriotic and self-respecting
American citizen to look abroad with-out.Mu-hing
for the government. In
the whole list there is not one who served
in the federal army, or who gave it a
word of support or encouragement. To
have them called hack is to have a
standing shame removed, and you can
d pend on tin people that they will
never again allow the foreign service to
.e so dishon 'red and degraded.
It begins to look as though the horri
ble stories of the atrocities of the Alaska
c mpany were the invention of the
Ihitish and Canadian seal pirates in or
der t; throw du.-t into the eyes of con
gress and prevent the renewal of the
company's contract. Then the
seal pirates probably thought that they
coul 1 soon rule the roost and deprive
Uncle Sam of hi plantation. It further
more looks as though thee pirates hud
retained Secretary Bayard to contest the
right of the United States to Alaska, any
way. The sixty thousand seals that these
oi rates have stolen during the past season
have furnished them with funds, and
'possibly they may turn around and buy
the United States and thus Jjave a free
run hereafter. Bayard has reconciled
the c ountry t the idea of "Jim Blaine"
in th-; state department, sure as you live.
The submission question is being dis
cussed by the senators and within a few
days a canvass will be taken, so we will
then know just who are the friends of
nd who are H enemies.
Tho Burdens of Womanhood
Thousands of women are silently suf
fering untold misery, simply because they
shrink from consulting a physician in
those numerous complaints arising from
functional irregularities and disorders.
Many a modest girl and woman prefers
to bear her heavy burden in silence rather
than to go to the family physician for
adviee. All sufferers from this class of
dirorders can, h -wevtr, find prompt and
sure relief in Dr. Pierce's Favorite Pre
scription. It is a specific in such case-5,
and has brightened the lives of countless
women by restoring them to perfect

WRITING BY TELEGRAPH.
laiilm Gray'n Invention for SeiitUnz Let
ter by Wire.
Electricity is the good genius of this
century. Those wb know most about
it say that what wo have tlono with it
in the p:ist is but a trillo compared
with what wo may bojH to do with it
in the future. There are peoplo who
expect some day to bo nble to call a
distant friend by wire, see his imago
in a mirror, hear his voice, and, if de
sired, get Ids exact signature to a sub
scription paper or a check.
Theso things may all come. At
present wo get along with an inter
mittent and exasperating repetitign of
the voice over tho wire, having no
means of determining tho identity of
our interlocutor, no certainty of get
ting his words accurately and no
record of what lie says. Cases uro re
ported whero ingenious rascals have
secured considerable sums by cleverly
imitating over the telephone the voice
of wealthy business men; in other
cases orders to buy or sell goods or
securities have been repudiated by
those who gave them by telephone,
while the simple blunders caused by
faulty telephonic transmission would
ElishaGray, the well known Illinois
inventor, recently patented a device to
insure uceuracy and accountability
over tho electric w ire. The sender of
a message can writo it out at his desk,
and an exact reproduction of the writ
ing will be made at the other end of
the circuit. There have been previous
attempts at transinittin fac similes of
writing, but inventions which de
pended upon a variation in the in
tensity of the current or upon revolv
ing cylinders proved unsatisfactory.
Mr. Gray's device consists of two
current interrupters at the sending end
and a pair of electro motors at the re
ceiving t-nd. The sender uses either
pen or pencil, near the point of which
ure attached two threads running at
light angles to each other. These
threads are kept at an even tension
automatically, and each one passes to
a cun-cnt interrupter set into the tele
graphic circuit. Vhen the pen moves
to tho right tho current is broken a
great number of times for a small
movement. When it moves to the left
the current is reversed and is similarly
interrupted. Tho same arrangement
prevails on the movement of the pen
up and down. Tho writer can write
or sketch as rapidly and as freely as if
he had no telegraphic attachment.
At the receiving end there are two
electro magnets fitted with rods set at
right angles to each other, so pivoted
as to givo any motion desired to the
pen which they carry at their inter
section. Whc-ii a series of breaks in
the current is caused by a motion of
the sending pen to the right, the mag
net draws the lateral rod also to the
right. Similarly upward motion is
given by the vertical rod. Left hand
ed or downward stroke.? of tho sending
pen are l-eproduced by the receiving
pen in th3 samo manner. Conse
quently every motion made en the
paper at one end of the wire is copied
with faultless exactness at the other
end. When tho pen is taken off or a
new line is begun an automatic device
operates with tho saino result on tho

Tlie Fine Tree State.
The assertion has frequently been
mady that the title "'Pine Tree State"
has become a misnomer for Maine,
and, although there aro lots of pine
trees still standing in the northern
part of the state, there is some ground
for objection to the old time sobriquet.
The statistics of the amount of pine
lumber surveyed at tho port of Bangor
yearly show that the cut of that kind
of timber on tho Penobscot has fallen
oil' from 123,000,000 feet in 1S53 to
J 000,000 in 1SS7. In the four years
from 1S53 to 1S57 there was a falling
oil in tho pino survey of 47.000,000
feet, and in 1S77, twenty years later,
pino had got down to 15,000,000 feet.
The total survey of pine at this port
from 1S55 to 1SS7, inclusive, was
1,510.000,000 feet, or considerably less
than one-half of the spruco survey,
and about three times the cut of hem
lock, juniper, etc. Pine used to lead
all other kinds of lumber, but now
spruce heads the list. In 1S55 tho pino
survey was 123,000,000 feet, the spruce
73,000,000 feet, but during the war
spruce took tho lead, and theso two
kinds of lumber gradually changed
places, until now tho cut of spruce
averages 120,000,000 feet, or four times
the output of pine. Nearly all of our
largo near by pino has been cut, and
most of the logs now driven down the
Penobscot are second growth. Thcro
is plenty of big pine away to the north,
but in tho face of western and Cana
dian competition in the leading mar
kets it would hai-dly pay to cut it and
drive it long distances. Spruce is king
on tho Penobscot, and all other Maine
rivers now, and this is really more of
a spruce tree stato than anything else.
