T he butcher promises to lead the ice ­ man in haughtiness by several laps dur­ ing the coming summer. M r . C leveland ’ s letter to that Chicago committee was a bid for the leadership of the gold monometallists. of the Hew York Republican county committee issued his recent address on the political situation at the metropolis, as an indi ­ vidual statement or in his official capacity . The manifesto raised the very deuce among the hetrogeneous horde of ego-mad political cranks, including the well-fed, : well-groomed muggies of the Union League club, who are the especial friends and supporters of Mayor Strong. Chairman Lauterbach ’ s address bristled with ugly facts that evidently made very unpleasant reading for the traitors and scalawags who have been doing their best to disrupt the Republican party in this State. But there was a ring of manliness and truth in every line of the address. It was a plain, unvarnished statement ad ­ dressed to honest people, and honest people understood it, just as they under ­ stand why the effort is now made to befog the issue by questioning the authority of the gentleman who issued the address instead of attempting to meet and refute the damaging statements of fact which it presented to the people. Rural Republican voters, however, will not be misled by any such efforts of men who stand convicted of lacking honesty of word or purpose, and who having been thoroughly exposed are accorded the con ­ tempt they deserve. W hat is the good of Secretary Morton investigating to ascertain what everybody - already knows — the existence of a beef trust? S ome of Grover Cleveland ’ s friends are asserting that he does not want another term. It ’ s just as well; he couldn ’ t get it if he did. How that President Cleveland has broken his prolonged stillness, we may be treated frequently to the results of his old-time epistolary fever. W e have the Trilby hats, Trilby shoes and Trilby everything else, and it would seem that the fad should have about run its course. What can we expect next ? W hat kind of lunatics do they incar cerate in theMatteawan asylum, anyhow' Is Perry, the express train robber insane ' Do lunatics perform and talk as he has done ? T he St. Louis Globe-Democrat remarks that Cleveland was converted to a belief in the income tax just in time to get wet when the Supreme Court turned the hose on it. I f General Maximo Gomez, the Cuban revolutionist leader, looks anything like the newspaper pictures of him he appears to be more hungry for a square meal than for glory. T here are people who do not think it just the proper caper for Hoke Smith to receive a $40,000 fee as a railroad lawyer while also drawing a salary as Secretary of the Interior. G rover C leveland discourses quite glibly concerning the necessity for “ sound money, ” “ safe currency ” and so on, but he carefully forgets to say what is sound money. Does he know? T he full baptismal name of the chief figure in the latest London scandal is Oscar Fingall O ’ Flaherty Wylis Wilde, but his real name, as a result of recent developments, is Mud. D id not this country have a safe cur rency during all the years previous to 1873, when silver and gold were alike used? Why then would it be unsafe to restore the old system? T he late Josh Billings used upon oc ­ casion to say “ ’ tis betfer to be ignorant than to know a lot that ‘ ain ’ t so. ” We commend the idea to some of those now posing as financial teachers. S ecretary M orton , of the department of agriculture, is investigating the cause of the advance in the price of beef. If he finds it and brings the price down to the old figure he may yet save the adminis­ tration. P erhaps Mr. Cleveland had his con­ tract with that European bond syndicate in mind when he wrote “ I believe that capital and wealth, through combination and other means, sometimes gains an undue advantage. ” T he members of a baseball club, on their way to play a game in the suburbs of Havana, were mistaken for an insur ­ gent army and arrested by Spanish troops. That gives a good idea of the insurgent armies. I t ’ s all the same who the Democrats put up for President next year, but if they wish a really picturesque campaign they will nominate Henri Watterson, the guardian of the goddess of liberty, and not adopt any platform. T he records of the weather bureau show that there are 196 people killed by lightning in this country annually, the average being that number. The number 0|£ men struck by political lightning is considerably larger, and the misses are , many times as great as all combined. T wice the United States supreme court took: a turn at passing on the constitution ­ ality of the income tax law. The authors of that measure must feel very much, like : the young doctor who celebrated his first case in obstetrics by boasting that while y . the mother and child both had died he jfead managed to save the old man. Tinkering on the new State constitution has already begun although it was only- adopted a few months ago. Last fall, the people deliberately voted against woman shffrage, by inserting the word “ male ” in the constitution. How-, a concurrent resolution for an amendment giving the right of suffrage to women has ..passed both houses of the legislature. It will, of course have to be readopted by the next legislature before it can be sub ­ mitted to the voters of the State for, con ­ sideration. But supposing that the next legislature approves, of the proposed amendment, only confirmed optimists will anticipate its adoption at the polls. While the pluck of the woman suffra ­ gists may be admired, it is to be feared that they are trying to force the fighting on their issue too soon after last year ’ s crushing defeat. SENT OUT THE troy §©?#ERi;HcS: 'CLOSED. SESSION Appointments of Castors in tills Vicinity for ’ tile Coining fear. O h , fie, Quigg ! Last week you pre ­ tended to be cocksure of your ability to prove the alleged facts in your sensational bribery yarn. How, you are whining that anonymous parties are building fences so that you cannot get at the testi ­ mony to prove your case. Why, Quigg, what kind of talk are you giving us ? Do you mean to say that you assassinate the reputations of honest men without having the damning proofs of their guilt already in your vest pocket ? “ Firemen intimidated by their superiors, ” eh? Oh, come off! Where ’ s your friend Fire Commissioner Sheffield ? Have your hysterical ravings made him as tired as you are making the public ? A THIN YARN, APPARENTLY. [From the Albany Journal.] A committee of the State Senate has been appointed to investigate charges affecting the integrity of Senators Cog- geshall, Raines and Robertson. It is charged that these senators endeavored to “ hold up ” the bill to increase the pay of the Hew York firemen, and demanded $45,000 fora favorable report. This is vhat the matter really resolves itself into, but of course the charge is not presented in these specific terms, nor does the evi­ dence so far presented in any way sustain the charge. It is made by the Hew York Press, a newspaper that recently came under the control of Congressman Quigg, and since then it may be said to have developed a spirit'of eccentricity which must keep its readers wondering from day to day. where it will be found floundering in the next 24 hours. While pretending to be a Republican newspaper, it has made a shameful at ­ tack on the integrity of three Republican senators on no other evidence than the floating gossip of the street. It says when the firemen ’ s bill came from tire Assembly and was referred to the Senate committee on Cities, it was amended so as to increase the pay of the officers of the fire depart ­ ment as well as the men. This made it objectionable, but according to the “ Press, ” the three senators insisted on the amendment and demanded $45,000 besides. As a matter of fact, the amendment was subsequently withdrawn in deference to- the wishes of those who introduced the bill, and the bill was reported to the Senate, was passed and is now law. It will be seen, therefore, that this at ­ tack on Republicans, made by the erratic “ Press, ” is of a very tenuous, character. It does not appear to hang together at all. It is apparently the product of idle and malicious gossip, and unless the “ Press ” makes out a clear case against the accused senators, it will be in a position which an honorable newspaper should not care to occupy. A lleged “ great ” newspapers pub ­ lished at Hew York appear to be run to a large extent on the strength ot “ sidewalk gossip. ” That kind of journalism may go at the metropolis but it wouldn ’ t be tolerated by the despised “ hayseed ” editors up the State. They couldn ’ t afford to run their newspapers after such a fashion. Besides, they have some con ­ science and believe that “ rumors, ” espec­ ially when they affect the reputations of reputable men, should be thoroughly in ­ vestigated and proven to-be absolutely true before they are published. The average country editor insists upon know ­ ing that he is right before going ahead. That ’ s where he rises superior to the sen ­ sation-mongers at the metropolis. Q uigg is already impeaching his own witnesses. Hext he will be indicting the jury. AN EXPERT ON BRIBERY. The committee to investigate the charge of bribery in regard to the fire depart ­ ment bill have made an excellent selection in the Hon. Elihu Root for counsel. Mr. Root is an expert on bribery. He knows how it is himself. — [Albany Argus, yester ­ day. Justice to the Senate Investigating com ­ mittee demands that the mistake made by the Argus should be corrected. The com ­ mittee did, not employ Mr. Root as their counsel and were not responsible for his appearance at the session held on Satur ­ day. Root participated as the hired attorney of Quigg, the “ sidewalk gossip ” editor of the Hew York Press. T he painful fact is rapidly dawning upon Quigg ’ s mind that he doesn ’ t know where he is at. THE MILK IN THE COCOANUT. The Hew York Press wants to have Louis F. Payn driven out of Albany and confined in some kind of a bastile. The Press seems to think that Mr. Payn knows too much. Perhaps he does know too much for the peace and comfort of the editor of the Press, and that may ac ­ count for the latter ’ s desire to have Mr. Payn confined in a dungeon cell. — [Albany Journal. WAS IT “ BOODLE ” OR “ PAP ” ? A Moulder of Public Sentiment Makes Curious “ Plop ’ ’ — What Tvas the Consideration ? [From the Up-Town Press, New York.] The editor of the daily morning Press, for a considerable time up to about April 1st, had bitterly attacked Mayor Strong ’ s administration concerning police matters. Suddenly there was a complete change of front, and the Press appeared advocating the appointment of the very men for JPolice Commissioners that the Mayor a few days after announced were his choice. Was there a direct deal there or not ? Was there or was there not a bargain entered into by which treachery on the side of the newspaper was to be rewarded with official favor on the other ? Simul ­ taneously with this the same newspaper bitterly attacked ex-Sheriff O ’ Brien, to whom it was generally known the Mayor had impliedly promised a Police Commis- sionership some time ago. Was or was there not a well-understood, tacit agree ­ ment that if the Press could create enough appearance of public, opposition to O ’ Brien, the Mayor could find this the excuse to back out of appointing the ex- Sheriff, on the plea that the public (?) would not sanction it ? A DEMORALIZING PRACTICE. Gambling in oil is very tempting, but people who have money and are inclined to engage in that kind of speculation just now ought to hesitate until they have concluded whether or not it is true that in such trading the thing that is meat for one man is misfortune for some other. In other words, the winnings of one must necessarily result in loss to some ­ body else. It is natural that the public should centre its admiring attention on the suc ­ cessful speculators who are making great fortunes in a day, but in the fever of ex ­ citement we are prone to overlook alto ­ gether the numberless unfortunates who have been left on the losing side. Speculative oil trading is only another form of common card-gambling, masque ­ rading in artificial respectability; and its demoralizing tendencies are as reprehen ­ sible as the influences of a faro room. CURREN T CO MMENT. The Florida Senate has fired a shot at the Spanish flag by adopting a resolution of sympathy with the Cuban revolution ­ ists ; and no apology will be made in the case, it is safe to say. — [St. Louis Globe- Democrat. If the Democrats must have a southern man for President in 1896, there is Dink Botts. — [Rochester Times. If the President had only added a post­ script defining what he means by a “ safe and sound currency, ” his letter might mean something. — [Detroit Tribune. To his former stock of choice phrases and epigrams Mr. Cleveland has added “ vanishing visions of increased wages ” and the “ illusions of a debased currency. ” — [Chicago Record. The President ’ s sound money letter is disappointing. — [Cincinnati Commercial Gazette. The income tax law resembles a Chinese puzzle, part of which is lost. We do not envy the authorities the amusement of putting it together. — [Rochester Union- Advertiser. Hew York barbers are now shaving their customers for three cents, and will cut their hair for five cents. This is re ­ form that will be wisely appreciated. — [Syracuse Courier. There is a rumor that Perry Belmont is to marry the divorced Mrs. Vanderbilt. It would be even better as a speculation than the last bond syndicate. — [Rochester Post-Express. Presidential candidates are more num ­ erous this season than they \will be next. All the dark horses are occupying box stalls. — [Hewburgh Register. The market quotations of oil, meat and house rent invite the attention of the man of family as] fly-time swings around. — [Brooklyn Citizen. Du Maurier ’ s object in coming to Amer ­ ica is, no doubt to see what people who become maniacal over “ Trilby ” look like. — [Buffalo Times. Van Clove' — Who is going.to be the best man at your wedding with Teddy Thought ­ less ? Miss Vanderwack — 1 am. The 63d annual session of the Troy Methodist Conference opened in the First Methodist church at Saratoga last Wednes ­ day morning. Bishop Walden presided. Bishops John P. Hewman, of Omaha, and ” Henry W. Warren, of Denver, were also present. Of the 266 members enrolled about two-thirds were present at the opening session. The conference was organizedhy the election of Rev. Edwin Genge of Hewtonville to be secretary, Rev. Joseph Zweifel of Troy, re-elected, statistical secretary and Rev. Edward Comstock of Ketchum ’ s Corners, re ­ elected, treasurer. The business session was devoted chiefly to completing the organization, and ad ­ dresses by Bishop Walden and others. On Thursday the reports of the presid ­ ing elders were presented. The report from the Albany district showed that church improvements costing $1,600 had been made at Kinderhook. In the Troy district, Presiding Elder Griffith reported very cheering results in almost all lines of church activity. His report included the following: “ Our Epworth League work continues to'progress. Additions have been made both in the number of chapters and mem­ bers, and several thrifty junior leagues have been organized. But better than all other signs of advancement is the percep ­ tible fact that a clearer grasp of their duties, responsibilities, and possibilities is dawning upon the vision of officers and members of the ’ various chapters. Fra ­ ternity, zeal and efficiency have been fostered and stimulated by enthusiastic branch conventions held at Valley Falls, Sand Lake, East Hassau, Horth Chat ­ ham, Horth Hoosick, Dalton and Grace church, Troy. The influence of these gatherings was augmented by the superb district convention held in October at Pittsfield, Mass. “ A careful inquiry into the condition of our class meetings has disclosed the fact that while there is a diminution in attendance compared with thirty or forty years ago, still both interest in and attend ­ ance upon these means of grace are notice­ ably greater than for a decade or two past. If our young people ’ s societies at the out ­ set seemed to be competitors, it is now be ­ lieved they are becoming helpful auxi ­ liaries to this time honored Methodist institution. In some of the churches of this district there is a genuine class meet­ ing revival, and the tone of the services is equal to that of any period. “ notwithstanding the financial de ­ pression of the year, which has found thousands within our district territory, and many within our churches, in the ranks of the unemployed, we have gone forward in our fiscal undertakings. Hew churches have been erected or projected, other properties improved, ministerial support and benevolent claims looked after, and none of the interests under this head has been negleted. “ Among' improvements to church pro ­ perty we briefly note : Hiverville has ex ­ pended $600, Chatham Centre $225, Eagle Bridge, for a new bell, $212, Averill Park $120, Cheshire $110 and many other points also in various sums. Indebtedness has been reduced or extinguished as follows : State street, Troy, has paid $4,000 on parsonage and Grace church, $900 on its debt and by the sale of the old property expects in the near future to reduce its indebtedness $6,000 more; Hoosick Falls has paid $1,107.50, Pittsfield $600 and Memorial $700 to lift a mortgage on its parsonage. “ Four charges, Brunswick, Tomhan- nock, Cooksboro and Chatham Centre, have during the year paid the arrears due former pastors on salary. In one case at least this conduct extended to a former presiding elder a most commendable 'example. Our benevolences we trust will , exhibit a fair showing. One-third of the, charges have reported at their quarterly confer­ ences an increase in the missionary collec ­ tions. Most of the.others will we believe hold their own at least. A few may reveal shrinkage. We expect the district will keep at the front. “ The Sunday school interests are ad ­ vancing. They with the pastors indicate a laudable interest in our missionary work and also in our own literature. Our Sun ­ day schools stand loyally by their own church publications. ” The conference sent a resolution to the Legislature opposing the passage of the Gray-Percy racing bill on the ground that it is “ designed to evade or override that wise and salutary provision of the new constitution, prohibiting alb pool-selling at race courses. ” The dominies meant well, but the fact is that the design of the bill is exactly the reverse of that which they supposed. On Friday morning Bishop Walden re ­ ceived into full communion a class of thirteen, all of whom have been engaged in ministerial duties from one to four years. In the afternoon, at the anniver ­ sary of the Freed men ’ s Aid and Southern Educational Society, the claims and de ­ mands of the work in the Southland were presented by the corresponding secretary, the Rev. Dr. John W. Hamilton, of Bos ­ ton, formerly of Virginia. Bishop Wal ­ den made an address on “ Africa, and dwelt upon the importance of Methodists, with other denominations, pushing for ­ ward the work of the Master in evangeliz ­ ing the whole colorerd race. -M, the Troy Conference Educational Society anniversary in the evening ad ­ dresses were made by the Rev. Dr. J. R. Day, of Syracuse, H. Y. ( and the Rev. Dr. Henry Graham, of Rutland, Vt. During Saturday ’ s session, C. F. Hoble, of Middleburgh, and H. C. Curtis, of Troy, were elected conference trustees. ' In connection with conferring local dea ­ con ’ s orders on several candidates, there, was quite a discussion over the case of Charles H, Quinlan, of Valatie. Many speeches were made counter to the ruling of the bishop that he should not be ad ­ mitted to the conference at this- session. The speakers, J. H. Coleman, Homer Eaton, S. W. Thompson, Joel W. Eaton, Presiding Elder Barrett, S. Palmer and others, spoke vigorously in favor of re ­ ceiving Mr. Quinlan. The bishop ’ s argu ­ ment was that being taken out of the itinerancy, and the Drew Theological seminary, by unavoidable causes for a part of the year^more than six months — he has not given the necessary service. The bishop decided against his reception, and by order of the conference, Mr. Quin ­ lan was continued on trial. Later in the session, however, Mr. Quinlan ’ s case was again presented, and he was elected to local deacon ’ s orders. At Monday ’ s session a committee re ­ ported that Rev. John G. Patton had withdrawn and gone to England where he has joined the Congregationalist church. He will be asked to surrender his credentials. Rev. Wm. M. Brundage, of Albany, having become a Unitarian preacher, he was given leave to withdraw on surrendering his credentials. The conference agreed to unite with the Horthern Hew York conference in setting apart May 17, as a special day of fasting and prayer for the conversion of at least 10,000 souls during the coming year. At the afternoon session it was decided to hold the 64th annual session in April, 1896, in the First M. E. church at Glovers- ville. An invitation was also received from the State Street church, Schenectady. The vote on the selection of the place stood 102 to 52. The annual session came to a close at 1 o ’ clock yesterday morning, when the appointments for the coming year were announced. In this vicinity they are as follows : Chatham Centre — G. H. C. Bain. Old Chatham and Malden — W. Flouton. Horth Chatham and Hiverville — G. Easton. * Yalatie — J. W. Quinlan. Kinderhook — J. H. C. Cooper. Stuyvesant and Stuyvesant Falls — A. H. Hash.

KILLED BY THE CARS. Pittsfield Man Meets DeatU Near Canaan Four Corners. Michael Conroy, aged about 50 years, a resident of Pittsfield, left thatcity, Thurs ­ day, for Troy, where his sister lives, in­ tending to obtain work. During Friday he was seen by a resident of Canaan Four Corners who says that Conroy showed signs of having been drinking. Hothing more was seen of the man until Saturday morning when his body was found beside the B. & A. railroad tracks between Canaan Four Corners and ^tate Line. The remains were carried to the depot at Canaan Four Corners where efforts were made to identify the body. The head was crushed and from the left jaw up one side was cut off. The left arm above the elbow and the left leg at the ankle were also gone. The remains were afterward brought to Hamm's Under ­ taking rooms in this village. The dead man was finally identified as Michael Conroy, by his clothing and some articles in his pockets. The body was removed to Pittsfield on the “ Modoc ” train, Sunday morning. It is supposed that while in an intoxicated condition, Friday night, deceased started to walk home and in the darkness was struck by an express train. ANOTHER SAFE CRACKED. Burglars Malte a Raid on a Business Office at Rebanon Springs. Burglars visited Lebanon Springs last Thursday night and entered the office of A. R. Clark & Son, where they broke open the safe. The thieves secured about $40. It is supposed tha,t they are profes ­ sionals. They escaped without leaving any clue to their identity. 'THEY ALL GO DOWN TOGETHER. We have received private, and confi ­ dential information that Mr. Samuel J. Tilden, Jr., Hon. W. Frank Holsapple and ex- “ Smiling ” Jimmy Purcell, the outgoing managers of the State House of Refuge for Women, at Hudson, have severally and individually come to the conclusion that Governor Morton is a man with a marble heart. Groceryman Charley Rogers mournfully seconds the motion. THE EASIEST WAY. The Spanish authorities continue to assert that they will-demonstrate thei!: ability to suppress the Cuban insurrection without much trouble, but they give no sign of assurance that it will stay sup ­ pressed. The easiest way out of the wilderness is for the Madrid government to fix a price on Cuba, and permit its peaceful annexation to the United States, where it properly belongs. ' Miss Lena Travers gives a birthday tea party to-day. Mi ss Millie Smith has been spending a week in Greenbush. There will be preaching in the church next Sunday at the usual hour. Mrs. Jane Ann Clapper, of Hudson, is is a guest at John I. Clapper ’ s. Mrs. Homer Kingman has left town for a week ’ s sojourn at Albany and Fort Ed ­ ward. Mrs. Lincoln Seaman has a very pretty petunia 3 % feet high with 25 blossoms and as many more buds. Pal rick Devlin has given up the surgi ­ cal work among the apple trees and gone into the shoemaking business, with head ­ quarters at Arthur Scott's. Bessie R., a three months ’ old daughter of Elbert Steenberg died April 16. The funeral services were attended last Thurs ­ day and the interment was in the East Greenbush cemetery. Yery strong suspicions are resting on the purloiaer of two bushels of clover seed and a harness from Lewis Rowe ’ s wagon house recently. Padlocks are of no avail to the seed seeker.

Kingman, secretary and treasurer ; Sylvester Bame, librarian ; Ernest Whitbeck, organist ; Etta Sim ­ mons, assistant. Born March 29, to Mr. and Mrs. F. J. Thompson, a son. It is not certain whether he is born to be a farmer, a black ­ smith or a cycler, as all three kinds of business appears to be carried on, on this place, Delmer and Lewis running the blacksmith shop and Lewis the wheel.
