DEMOCRATIC STATE TICKET.
FOR STATE TREASURER,
CONRAD B. DAY,
DEMOCRATIC COUNTY TICKET.
Jbr Jkry Cbmmutttonir—JOHN ROAN,
Jbr Coroner—Dr. H. K. HOY.
THE Day is dawning when fellows
like Quay must stand oat of .the way
for honest men like Conrad B. Day.
IRA DAVENPORT for Governor, and
General Carr for Lieutenant Govern
or, is the ticket nominated by the Re
publicans of New York, on Wednes
day ot last week.
THE Republicans of this county
nominated Daniel Hess, of Linden
Hall, for Jury commissioner, and Dr.
S. F. Lytle, of Philipsburg, for Cor
oner, at their convention on Tuesday
of last week.
JOHN M. KIRKPATRICK, Judge of the
Alleghany County Court, communi
cated his resignation to Governor Pat
tison .last week. There are quite a
number of candidates for the vacant
(dace,which will not be filled however,
until the Governor's return from
CANDIDATE Day and Chairman
Hensei had a consultation on the com
ing state canvass] with the principal
workers of the party at Harrisburg on
last Thursday. Many counties were
represented and by all reports the con
dition of the canvass is a very hope
THE independent republican move
ment against Quay is taking a organ
ized shape. A mass meeting OF the
opposing republicans is to be called at
Philadelphia in a few days for the
purpose ot starting an effective bolt.
This shows that the time for political
bosses, unscrupulous ringsters and
wirepullers is about past, and when
ever one of them lifts his head, the up
right and honest voters of either par
ty unite in crushing the offensive
DEMOCRATS, remember that if we
do our full duty, to wit: Pay our
taxes before next Saturday, in order to
enable us to vote, and get out a full
vote in November, we will be able to
elect a man for state treasurer whose
record is unspotted and who for hon
esty and strict integrity stands high
in the party. That man is Conrad B.
Day. Do not, for sheer neglect of
doing your doty, run the risk of having
a man like Matthew S. Quay in that
responsible office, a man who is going
to be rejected at tbe polls by a large
majorityjof his own party on account
of his unfitness for the office.
THE New York Democracy, assem
bled in State Convention last Thurs
day and nominated Gov. Hill for their
candidate for Governor on the first
ballot, tbe vote standing as follows :
Hill, 235 ; Hewitt, 33 ; Slocum, 8 ;
Flower, 13. The total number of
vatds cast was 380. From this ballot
it can be iufered that the]democrats of
the empire state are well united in
their choice of a governor and that
the nominee will receiye the undivid
ed support of his party.
Roweli P. Flower was unanimous

THE following item from the Phila.
Times gives a bit of information a
bout the domestic life of u well known
and prominent politician, that may le
of great interest to many of our read
Senator Wallace has had more than
the common inheritance of sorrow tall
into the evening of his honored and
useful life. He is a man of the strong
est domestic attachments, a devoted
husband and father, and his home has
ever been to him the centre of attrac
tion, even in all his conflicts of ambi
Within a few years his estimable
wife, who had fulfilled a mother's no
blest duties in the care of children
until they reached manhood and wo
manhood, bowed to mental infirmaties
which not only necessarily separated
her from home and loved ones, but
made her a stranger to all she loved
most. Sho is, and has been for some
years an inmate of an asylum near
Philadelphia, and her malady is re
garded as beyond the power of medi
Not far dittant from tho retreat of
the wife and mother, is a son of Sena
tor Wallace, hopelessly feeble in in
tellect from a fall received in early
childhood, and another son oi much
promise and just in the flush of youth
ful manhood, was killed by an accident
only a few days ago. The world
little knows of the sorrow which
shadow the lives of men who are
known mainly in the rude conflicts of
ambition ; but they often retire from
the strife that they seem to enjoy to

Cleveland Strikers go to Work
The strike of the workmen of Cleve
land Rolling Mill, Ohio, was amicably
settled in an open air meeting of the
strikers, when the leaters advised the
men to resume work aTOnce, accepting
the terms of the company. All were
enthusiastic and agreed to take the
work offered them. The mills started
up last Monday with a large force of
Murder in the Second Degree.
HUNTINGDON, Pa., Sept. 24.—10 p.
m.—The great murder trial of John
Laporte, son of Judge Laporte, of this
county, is ended and the defendant has
been found guilty of murder in the sec
ond degree. After deliberating on the
evidence only three hours and fifteen
minutes the jury returned with the ver
dict at 8.30 o'clock to-night. When the
yerdict was announced by Foreman
Dunkle, the prisoner manifested no
concern whatever, but when his sister
congratulated him she remarked, 'Why,
John, how cold your hands are,' show
ing how well he had concealed his feel
ings. His counsel are disappointed at

The Governor has fixed November 19
as the day for the execution of Curtiu
McClam, convicted at Mifflin county of
the murder of William Smearman,at
Newton Hamilton Camp Meeting, in
August, 1884. The mother and wife of
McClain were endeavoring to secure
Executive clemency, and had an affect
ing interview with the Governor. They
claim to have after-discoyered testimo
ny which will establish McClain's in
nocence. The Governor held out no
hope to them, but kindly told the aged
mother and child-wife that they had
sixty days In which to present their
after-discoyered evidence to the Board
of Pardons. They left for home this

A Terrible Aocident at York Haven
Opposite Collin's Station.
YORK, Pa., Sept. 25.—A terrible ac
cident occurred at York Hayen about
teu miles from here this afternoon,
which resulted in the death of one man
and serious injury of three others. A
large paper mill is being erected there,
and workmen weie engaged in excavat
ing rock in preparing the foundation.
A number of blasts had been made, but
one of tbem failed to explode, and it
was thought the workmen had neglect
ed to charge. John Morrissey,of Wash
ington, O. C;, began drilling out the
hole,and with his drill struck lite dyna
mite with which it had been charged,
when a terrible explosion occurred.
Morrissey's right hip was crushed and
the fiesh was torn from his limbs. He
died this evening. Thomas O'Brien
was cut about the head and was badly
burned with powder. Patrick Hagerty
bad his left eve blown out and was also
seyerely burned, and John O'Conner
was badly injured about tbe bodj. Med
ical assistance was sent from Y ork and
tbe injured men were brought here to
A Crank's Letter to the President.
WASHINGTON, Sept. 24.—A rather
curious letter was received by the Pres
ident tbe other day. It called upon
him to resign by October 3. The writ
er signs himself "Henry N. Kerp,Pres
ident-elect of the United States, Phil,,
Dr., M. D.; Professor of Military and
Civil Jurisprudence, National Military
Home, Virginia." lie addresses the
President as "Grover Cleveland, Act
ing President," and says: "Your
functions are no longer required. All
acts made by you after October 3 will
be null and yoid." He attatches to the
letters orders from 2.2G2 to 2,170 to
each of the Cabinet officers, addressing
each as "Acting Secretary." To Sec
retary Bayard the writer tenders his
thanks for the faithful performance of
nis duty, but cautions him not to "pay
too much attention to these scribbling
newspaper critics," and requests that
the Secretary will have no direct diplo
matic any British sub
ject,nor their SpOTlsh or Rusaianjallies.

STRIKERS TAKE UP ARMS.
The striking iron workers formerly
employed at the Laughlin mill at Mar
tin's Ferry, Ohio, numbering between
40 and 50 men, marched up to within
about 200 yards of the mill at 2 o'clock
in the morning of the 26th of Septem
ber, under cover of the darkness, and
prepared for an assault upon the build
ings aud its inmates, while a squad of
half a dozen bearing a largo basket, in
which were 30 dynamite and giant pow
der hand grenades, went up on the rail
road to a poiut just west of the compa
ny's warehouse in which the workmen
were asleep. The main body advanced
toward the east face of the warehouse
for the purpose of making a diversion
in the rear. Within 20 yards of the
building a mill picket challenged the
mob, but the only reply was one or two
scattering shots. The picket again
challenged,but was fired on again,when
he retreated to the corner of the ware
house. Here Major Alderson, a stock
holder and director or the company,
challenged the party. He likewise was
fired on, when he returned the fire. The
main body of the guards on the south
side of the mill, had by this time ad
vanced to Major Alderson's aid, and a
brisk skirmish at once began between
the opposing forces. Both sides were
well armed, and the firing was rapid.
While this was going on at the east side
of the factory the party with tho hand
grenades on the west advanced and
threw half a dozen into the building,
when the men were driven off from a
fire from within. Two of the grenades
exploded, but only slight damage was
done to the house and none at all to the
inmates. By this time three men had
fallen on the side of the strikers, and
tbe latter began to slowly retire, taking
their wounded with them.
Of the guards at tbe works two were
seriously wounded. The excitement is
very great and a renewal of the trouble
on a more extended scale is very prob
