among others , listened to the stories afloat
and checked out $10,000 without giving us
any notice. I believe the suspension Is
only temporary , nnd even If the bank Is
closed for good vvc can pay all our debts
If we collect 35 cents on the dollar of what
Is due us. "

( Continued ttom
tin caucus action will be the passage of
the house bill with the sqnnto amendments ,
While the house bill Is a better measure In
my judgment than this the nt nsuro which
will b. come n law Instead bytolay's action
In a wonderful Improvement ; on the Me-
Klnley law. It gives free wool , free lumber ,
free hemp , flit and jute , and
reduces largely the duties on
manifold goods Into which nil thesj ma
terials enter. To Illustrate , the average
duty on woolen goods under the McKlnley
law Is 9S'4 ' per cent. Tlilp has been re
duced more than half. Jh ret Is also con
siderable reduction on all schedules and the
average on all will bo about 38 per cent ,
as against nbout GO per cent under the
present law. The right of the president to
Impose taxes without congress Is taken away
and given back to the congress to whom It
belongs nnd from whom It was wrested by
thtMcKlnley law It should not be for
gotten also that the sjstem rccomm-'iided
by the house , known as the Income tax , Is
retained In the bill nnd becomes a part of
our fiscal policy , lly this It Is proposed to
tax what people have In excess of their
needs , rather than to tax what they lined
and have not got. "
There Is good authority for the statement
that the president wit neither sign nor veto
the senate tariff bill , but vv'll let It become
n law without his signature under the ten
diys provision of the constitution.

Important Dlscovprj In Kthnology Miulo by
Prof. Cjms Tliomiifl ,
WASHINGTON , Aug. 13. What was char
acterized as the most Important discovery
concerning aborigines made In many years is
announced as the result of researches made
by Prof. Cyrus Thomas of the United Stales
bureau of ethnology. Contrary to previous
statements , Prof. Thomas set forth as a
fact that Mexican civilization originated with
the Malays of the south Pacific seas , and
established a connection between the
languages of the Malays and the Mayas , now
In Yucatan. The latler language , according
to his vlows , is n direct off-shoot of the
Malay , that spoken by the people of Malacca ,
Java and Sumatra. It is claimed at the
bureau that this discovery throws now lighten
on the aboriginal races , and will result In
an entire remodeling of the views hereto
fore advanced as to the history and native
civilization of Central America. : TKIJATV CONl'IKMIJD.

Prompt Action of nil Unglnecr I'rovi'nts
A crew of a LenlEh Valley freight train
had a narrow escape from death near Wllkes-
barre recently. They were saved by the
prompt action of the engineer , John Titus.
The engine with three freight cars was
going down a heavy grade near Miner's
Mills at the rate of about thirty miles an
hour. Tllus was at the throttle nnd was
keeping a sharp lookout ahead. The track
was clear for nearly a mile. Suddenly the
entire roadbed a few yards In front of the
engine settled down , leaving the rails and
tics skeletonized for several yards.
At the rate the train was running and
on the down grade Titus realized that he
could not stop the train In time and he
opened the throttle wide. The train jumped
forward and , gaining Impetus In the few
yards separating It from the hole , flew over
the unsupported rails , and before Its weight
could displace them was on Ihe other side.
The train was stopped and the crew hur
ried bick. The ground was still sinking ,
and the hole was fully thirty feet across.
They couhl not eec the bottom. It was over
an old mine working. Several veins had been
worked out and the timbers supporting them
gradually rolled unlll Ihey gave way.

That year occurred an event little worthy

to take part In the b.mqucl In Jupiter's
temple , according to the ancient custom ,
withdrew , every one of them , lo Tlbur , so
that nobody was left at Homo to play dur
ing the sacrlftcis. This Incident shocked
the religious sentiment of the senate , ami
the senators sent messengers to Invite the
Inhabllanls of Tlbur lo make every effort
In order tint the phrvers should be restored
to the Romans. the Tlbur tines , having
promised not to neglect anj thing necessary
for that purpose , mused the llule placrs
lo come to the place where the onntc met
and exhorted them to go bick to Rome
Seeing that they couhl not prevail upon them
to do so , they employed rr stratagem In keepIng -
Ing with their character On n dty of festi

crease the Joy of the fcasl , every citizen In

them In such qtmntllles Dial Ihey fe'l ' Into
a deep sleep They were then tliroun Into
wagons and transported to Rome. They
only became nwntc of whal had happened
on the day after , when dawn surprised them
lying on the carts , which had been left In the
forum. A large crowd had ; ! emjl' | > d , nnd
they were Induced to promise that they
would remain at Rome The tight of attend
