Price One Cent. tNORWj lAZETTfi. THE FAVORITE HOME PAPER. - IidsieMeiit it all tilings; Neutral looming. The Gazette has the Iarsest circulation of any paper'In Norwalk, and furnishes the lowest advertising rates. I jJ*. ' Still a Local issue, ^v ". .' ,s One of the things that has been ele'ar- Jy demonstrated by the recent hearings j • before the Ways and Means Committee, says the Washington Post, is that the ? late Gen. Winfield Scott Hancock was ~ qnite right when he declared that the ; tariff was a local issue. Every witness who appeared before the committee was actuated by the law of self-preservation " i and partisan ties were thrown to one side when they came to plead for legislation calculated to assist their business interests. " _ The owner of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, a Democratic journal that clamors for lower tariff duties, was on hand to plead for the retention of the duty on lead and lead ore. Being interested in lead mining and smelting, as well as newspaper publishing, Mr. Holden was of the opinion that the ' - burdens of the people could be lessened ^ by attacking some other industries, and " " he so informed the; committee. The esteemed contemporary of Mr. Holden i is the Cleveland Leader, a Republican journal that is quite vociferous for protection via the high tariff route. Like Mr. Holden, the owners of the Leader > don't depend solely on the newspaper business for a living, but are interested in the manufacture and development of •_ brass. - ^During the sessions of the Ways and v.'.,Means Committee of the Fifty-fir^t Congress, the editor of the Cleveland Leader had representatives present to plead for certain free raw materials V which entered largely into the manufacture of brass. Here is a rather remarkable case, and, taken in connection with the appearance of the Democratic governor of West Virginia, who favors protection for the industries of his own State and free trade on the productions • —: of New England, we have a most forci- : ble illustration of the truth of Gen. Hancock's famous remark. The tariff is not only a local issue, but it is pro-ductive of. much selfishness. ^ ^• s Music Hall. & A large audience greeted the Fred Solomon Opera Company at j^Musio Hall last night, and many were the words of prajs^ lieard-afc the.Tourtain was rung down on :*thes ^ast act. si,The comedy opera, Poor Jonathan wa.s presented for the iirst time in Norwalk, and the excellent company were at their best. Of Fred Solomon nothing more can be said in his? praise than has already been eaid, as'he is always good and. carries the audience with him. Madge:- Lessing was a perfect little kitchen maid and delighted all with her winning ways, dancing and songs. Drew Donaldson as Harriett, a prima donna, "captivated the audience with her excellent - singing and fine voice. W. F. Rochester, an impresario, was excellent as was also Charles Priest in the character of a wealthy American. In fact all were good and tne entertainment a delightful one. The costumes were rich and the scenic effects good. All in all it is one of the best comic opera companies that ever visited this city. "The Brigands" will be presented this afternoon, and to-night the ever popular "Nadjy." The company is deserving of a crowded house. V; TERSE TALES OK THE TI M ES.

The doctor at once went to work to counteract the effect , of the acid and relieve "the suffering woman. She was made as comfortable as possible but may die at any moment.

Dr. Briggs, who has beta reduced from preaching In the regular Presbyterian pulpits, in charge. It has been understood for some time that some of the leading lights in the Cumberland Presbyterian church are leaning towards Briggsism and it is evident from certain articles in their denominational paper that overtures have been made by tfcd denomination to Prof. Briggs to come with all his followers' into the Cumberland Presbyterian church. Some of the young ministers of the Cum berland churoh who belong to the recently organized Princeton presbytery of the Cumberland church are students ia the Union seminary of New York, in which institution Prof. Briggs has long taught.

A piece of iron rail which had probably been used by farmers for breaking corn stalks had been plaoed batween two ties. The train struck the obstruction with considerable force breaking the iron rail short off. Had the train been derailed a fearful loss of lifa would likely have occurred as the coaches were alljfilled and the banks are very steep and rough at that place. This is the second attempt that has been made within the past ten days to wreck this same passenger train. - THE PENSION QVESTION. Secretary Smith Explains That ife IS Only After Unworthy CM«I.

THE FAVORITE HOME PAPER.
- IidsieMeiit it all tilings; Neutral looming.
The Gazette has the Iarsest circulation
of any paper'In Norwalk,
and furnishes the lowest advertising
I jJ*. ' Still a Local issue, ^v ".
.' ,s One of the things that has been ele'ar-
Jy demonstrated by the recent hearings
j • before the Ways and Means Committee,
says the Washington Post, is that the
? late Gen. Winfield Scott Hancock was
~ qnite right when he declared that the
; tariff was a local issue. Every witness
who appeared before the committee was
actuated by the law of self-preservation
" i and partisan ties were thrown to one
side when they came to plead for legislation
calculated to assist their business
interests. " _
The owner of the Cleveland Plain
Dealer, a Democratic journal that
clamors for lower tariff duties, was on
hand to plead for the retention of the
duty on lead and lead ore. Being interested
in lead mining and smelting,
as well as newspaper publishing, Mr.
Holden was of the opinion that the
' - burdens of the people could be lessened
^ by attacking some other industries, and
" " he so informed the; committee. The
esteemed contemporary of Mr. Holden
i is the Cleveland Leader, a Republican
journal that is quite vociferous for protection
via the high tariff route. Like
Mr. Holden, the owners of the Leader
> don't depend solely on the newspaper
business for a living, but are interested
in the manufacture and development of
- ^During the sessions of the Ways and
v.'.,Means Committee of the Fifty-fir^t
Congress, the editor of the Cleveland
Leader had representatives present to
plead for certain free raw materials
V which entered largely into the manufacture
of brass. Here is a rather remarkable
case, and, taken in connection
with the appearance of the Democratic
governor of West Virginia, who favors
protection for the industries of his own
State and free trade on the productions
• —: of New England, we have a most forci-
: ble illustration of the truth of Gen.
Hancock's famous remark. The tariff
is not only a local issue, but it is pro-ductive
of. much selfishness. ^ ^• s
A large audience greeted the Fred
Solomon Opera Company at j^Musio
Hall last night, and many were the
words of prajs^ lieard-afc the.Tourtain
was rung down on :*thes ^ast act. si,The
comedy opera, Poor Jonathan wa.s presented
for the iirst time in Norwalk,
and the excellent company were at their
best. Of Fred Solomon nothing more
can be said in his? praise than has
already been eaid, as'he is always good
and. carries the audience with him.
Madge:- Lessing was a perfect little
kitchen maid and delighted all with her
winning ways, dancing and songs.
Drew Donaldson as Harriett, a prima
donna, "captivated the audience with
her excellent - singing and fine voice.
W. F. Rochester, an impresario, was
excellent as was also Charles Priest in
the character of a wealthy American.
In fact all were good and tne entertainment
a delightful one. The costumes
were rich and the scenic effects good.
All in all it is one of the best comic
opera companies that ever visited this
city. "The Brigands" will be presented
this afternoon, and to-night the ever
popular "Nadjy." The company is deserving
of a crowded house.
