powers.

The quo

the President sent a message to Congress, recommending that a formal declaration of war with Spain be made, and a bill to that effect was passed by both Houses, the same day. It enacts “ that war be and the same is hereby declared to exist, and that war has existed since the 21st day of April, 1898, including said day, between the United States of America and the Kingdom of Spain," and authorizes the President to use all the land and naval forces, call the militia into service, etc.

THE effect of the war will be to practically prohibit for the time trade with Europe in American ships. A dispatch from Plymouth, England, says it is rumored that a Spanish gun boat is patrolling the entrance of the English Channel, off Lizard Point. A dispatch from New York, 26th, says, “there has been a sharp advance in rates of ocean freights since the outbreak of war, a natural result of the greater hazards of sea voyages and of the inevitable retirement of American vessels from the foreign carrying trade.”

A BILL was unanimously passed by the House of Representatives on the 23d, to “reorganize" the regular army. It authorizes the army to be increased to 61,010 men. The number, heretofore, has been about 26,000. A bill to lay new taxes intended to produce an increased revenue of 90 to 100 millions of dollars a year, has been presented to the House. It imposes additional taxation on distilled and malt liquors, tobacco, etc., and revives the stamp taxes of the civil war period. Stamps will be required if the bill passes on nearly all business and legal instruments.

The policy of Spain, it is said in dispatches from Madrid, will be to prolong the war, make it costly for the United States, and, if possible, embroil” other nations. An extended period of preparation appears to be contemplated at Washington. " It is stated at the War Department that it is likely to be several months before any of the volunteer forces are sent out of the country. The interval in the meantime will be utilized in instruction of the recruits. It would be almost fatal to troops from this country to operate in Cuba during the warm rainy season.

NEWS AND OTHER GLEANINGS.

It must not be supposed that the support of militarism in Germany is universal. Three parties there have made international arbitration a part of their program. These are the Democratic Party, the Social Democrats, and the Bavarian Peasants' Union. Franz Wirth, the late President of the Frankfurt Peace Society, left a legacy of ten thousand marks to the Society. Pastor Otto Umfrid of Stuttgart, continues to give addresses in his own and other German cities. Some of his audiences number a thousand people, so great is the interest in the cause of peaee.

-At the recent school elections in Ohio, women cast a large vote in many towns. In Toledo, during the two days allowed for registration this spring, 3,793 women and 2,394 men were added to the list of voters registered last fall. Dr. Mary Law was a candidate for the school board, and was defeated by only 53 votes in a total of more than 5,000. In the little town of Wooster, more than 600 women voted. In other places, also, the women turned out in large numbers. In Warren, Mrs. Harriet Taylor Upton, the treasurer of the National American Woman Suffrage Association, was elected, with Mrs. Carrie P. Harrington, by a majority larger than had ever been given to any candidate in Warren. - Woman's Journal.

-The Directors of the Chicago, Burlington, and Quincy Railroad, have voted to spend something over $1,000,000 in elevating their tracks within the limits of Chicago.

-It is stated that a meeting was held in New York, on the 14th inst., between representatives of a number of the largest manufacturers of knit-goods. Plans were made to form a trust, with a capital of $30,000,000, to control the manufacture of all goods of this class in the country. There are now about 1,300 separate firms in this business in the United States. The intention is to buy the plants of these firms, paying half in cash and the other half in stock of the new combination.

-Edward Bellamy, famous as the author of "Looking Backward,' and " Equality,” who went to Colorado last autumn in the hope of regaining his health in that invigorating climate, is reported dying of consumption. His near relatives in the East were sent for, and it was expected he would be brought back to his home at Chicopee Falls, Mass.

-A current news item says : Nearly $5,000,000 in gold is on the way from Japan to London, and it is reported that the withdrawal of gold from that country is growing very serious. The Japanese government seems likely to be forced to reissue the silver yen, in which case the gold standard will practically collapse.

-Prof. Charles W. Shields, of Princeton University, who was so affronted by criticism of the " Princeton Inn" and its liquor license, has gone over to the Episcopal Church. His. sympathies appear to have been with its system.

-Hayti and San Domingo have agreed to submit their boundary dispute to the Pope for arbitration.

A GOOD INVESTMENT. One of the safest of all investments is the bond of a good Pennsylvania water company. Recent decisions of our Supreme Court have determined that when a town has given such a company the right to supply the town with water, the franchise cannot be withdrawn, except for good cause.

The Muncy Water Supply Company, of Muncy, Lycoming Co., has just issued First Mortgage Gold Bonds, to run forty years, which are now offered for sale to investors at par and accrued interest from April 1st.

They pay FIVE per cent interest. They are free from State Tax.
Interest paid in Philadelphia at the office of the City Trust Company, 927 Chestnut Street.

The present revenues of the Company, with about 400 more houses yet to be supplied with warer, are sufficient to pay all expenses, including interest on the bonds, and still leave a surplus. A Sinking Fund has been provided sufficient to pay off all the bonds at maturity, or purchase any that may be offered before maturity, at a price not exceeding 105 and interest.

The bonds are in denominations of $500 and $1,000; they are either coupon or registered, as preferred.

This is an excellent opportunity for a safe, profitable, and convenient investment.
