PRESIDENT Cleveland has justly hon
ored another of Pennsylvania's dis
tinguished democrats by appointing
Hon. W. A. Wallace as a member of
the board of visitors at the naval
academy at Annapolis.
PUILADKLPNIA wants an elevated
railroad. A syndicate backed by
thirty million dollars is ready to build
fortj miles of road. Pennsylvania's
metropolis has • pushing set of busi
ness men and when they put their
shoulders to the wheel it is generally
a "go."
TMT Philadelphia Times of last
Friday agitates the question of get
ting up a rousing Fourth of J uly cel
ebration in the Quaker city this year.
Being the birthplace of American In
dependence there is no place in the
Union where that important event
ought to be rejoiced over and appro
priately commemorated with more
vim than in the city of Philadelphia.
THE great number ot distinguished
men of this country who have gone to
eternity in the past two years has been
joined by two more in the death of
EX-Yice President William A. Wheel
• er, which occurred on Sunday last, and
that of Chief Justice Mereur, who died
last Monday. A short biography of
these men may be found in another
MARSHALL Dill was sworn into of

by Judge Butler on Tuesday morn

bond is $20,000 ami the new United
States Marshall and his two sureties

CURRENT reports have it that ex
governor A. G. Curtin may re enter
the political field as a candidate for
congress from the newly formed
twentieth congressional district, con
sisting of Centre, Clearfield, Clarion,
Elk and Forest counties. If true it
will be a surprise all around as the
ex-governor was pretty generally con
sidered to be on the retired list of poli
THAT the people of this state are
thoroughly aroused by the injustice
which would naturally result from the
failure of the new revenue bill, which
was blunderingly allowed to be lost
at the late session of the legislature is
shown in the following circular which
is being sent to the commissioners of
every county in the state :
WILKESBAKKK, Pa., June 3, 18K7.
To the Commissioners of — Co. GENTLE
MEN :—Your attention is called to the fail
ure of the revenue bill, and the jiosition of
the Governor upon the subject. In justice
to your county and its tax-pajiers it becomes
necessary for you immediately to urge upon
your Senator and members to insist U]K>II
an extra session, and liave all your local
papers demand the same. By this blunder
(if such it be,-) a great injustice has been
done to the people and it should be remedied.
Yours respectfully,
Chairman Co. Corn's. Convention.
GOVERNOR BEAVER vetoed the State
Capitol improvement bill and gives as
bis reason the "uncertainty as to the
revenues." Now we never thought
mnch of patch work on public build
ings and especially not on the state
capitol buildings, and since the pro
ject of erecting a new capitol has gone
under we are satisfied to see the repair
bill go along with it. But the Gov
ernor's reason for vetoing the bill
brings us back to the mysterious fail
ure of the revenue bill. If according
to his opinion the revenues of the
state are uncertain, or in other words,
unequal to the expenses, then the loss
of the new revenue bill is indeed a
great loss to the treasury of the state,
and we join in the general sentiment
of the representatives of the people aud
of the press,which urges the Governor
to call an extra session of the Legisla
ture for the purpose of re enacting the
lost bill. True, extra sessions are ex
pensive, but the gain by having the
revenue bill made a law would exceed
that expense by $2,000,000, and con
sequently the recalling of the Legisla
ture would pay in the end. If noth
ing is done in the matter it will sim
ply bo another illustration of how cor
porations are layered and how they
can do as they please.
Since writing the above article wo
see that Governor Reaver's chief oh
jeetion to calling an extra session is
removed, as nearly nil the momliers of
the legislature expressed their willing
ness to serve during such session
without pay.
EVERY day President Cleveland's
popularity seems to increase and his
strength as tbo next candidate for the
high office which he now fills with
such undisputed efficiency becomes
more and more npparant. Thefollewiug
conversation which was had ontho sub
ject between two representatives from
Texas and a no wspaper reporter at
Washington will explain itself and
cau be taken as a finger board to
the approaching campaign of ISSB :
"What Jo the people of your state think
of the president ?" asked the reporter of
Representative Stewar.t who had eoiuo to
the National capital the other morning.
"There is no opposition in Texas to the
president," was the reply. "The Texas
delegation will le unanimous for his
nomination. And on this suhjeot 1 can
spenk for tho entire South. The whole
South is for Cleveland. There is no op{>osi
tion to him and in the eoiiventiou |h will
have the solid, hearty and enthusiastic sup
port of our people. His popularity increas
es as the people know more of him. He
has given the country an honest and eeono
mical administration, and in the national
convention next year lie will le renomina
t<<d by acclamation. He will !*• renomina
te! and re-elected."
Representative Savers, of Texas, who has
just come from his home to attend the
commencement exercises at Annapolis as
one of the board of visitors to the naval a
cadenty, was also interviewed. He corrolt
oruted all that Mr. Stewart had said in r--
gard to the democratic enthusiasm for the
president in Texas. He said there was hut
one sentiment in that state as to the next
canvass, and that was for Cleveland."

He Passes Away to the Realms Above
on Saturday Morning.
MALONE, N. Y., June s.—Hon.
William Alrnon Wheeler died here at
10.10 O'CIOCK Saturday morning. He
was born in this place on the 30t.1i of
June, 1810. His lather died when he
was eight yers old, leaving his mother
in poor circumstances to take care of
him and his two sisters. Mrs. Wheel
er worked hard and succeeded in keeping
her son at school until has was capable
of earning his livelihood as a teacher.
Later on he went to the university
of Vermont for two years and there
studied law for four years, when he was
admitted to thebar. From that time
on until he was relieved of the vice
presidency he always held public office
of some kind. Briefly, some of the of
fices to which, he was at various times
elected were town clerk, school com
missioner, school inspector, Malone ;
district-attorney of Franklin county,
twice a member of assembly, and once
state senator.
113 was a representative in congress
thirty-seventh and forty-seventh ses
sions, and in 1877 took possession of
the vice-president's chair with It. B.
Hayes as president. Shortly after go
ing into this office his wife died, and
thereafter his whole nature seemed
changed, and he rarely appeared in
public at any of the receptions in
Washington or elsewhere.
When his term of office I ml "xplied
lie retired to his home in Malone and
secluded himself as much as possible
from all liis old friends. Lately he de
clined rapidly and it was apparent
that his demise was only a matter of a
short time.
Dr. Gay was in almost constant at
tendance, and the dying man could
hardly hear him out of sight. Friday
afternoon ho seemed more cheerful
than usual. He talked with unusual
animation, but as night approached his
spirits tailed and he became alarmingly
worse. Finally he lapsed into a com
atose condition and passed quietly
without a sign of recognition of those
about him. The once strong and ag
gressive political leader was wasted to
almost a shadow of his former self.
Of late years Mr. Wheeler spent a
gieal deal of money in charity and im
proving the condition of the poor In his
native locality. Mr. Wheeler hud heen

party and before that time had been a

l>cnth of Chief .lustlee Mereur.
PHILADELPHIA, June 6.—Chief Jus
tice Mereur,of the state supreme court,
who has heen ill for the past ten days
with pneumonia, died at the residence
of his son at Walliugford, Delaware
county, this morning.
Hon. Ulysses Mereur was ls>rn at Towan
da, I 'a., May 2S, tsis. He graduated lYom
the Jefferson college, I'unonshurg, at lin
age of 21. He read law in the oltiee of
Judge William MeKeioion, of Pittsburg.
He was a delegate to the convention that
nominated John C. Fremont for president,
and was a Lincoln presidential elector in
IStk). lie was apjktintcd judge of the com
mon pleas court of Bradford county in 18fi2,
and was subsequently elected to till the
same intuition for a term of ten years, in
the fall of ISU4 lie was elected to congress.
He served several terms in congress. He
became a chief justice of the supreme court
in January, IHS3. His ancestors went to
Bradford county front Lancaster county,
anil his early professional career was sj>eui
in that locality, where lie had eminent suc
cess at the l>ar, and was conspicuous in pol
itics. He was formerly a democrat, and as
such ttx>k an active interest in polities, and
was elected to the Thirtieth congress, He
was a frequent delegate to state conventions
and a leading eounseller in the party. The
detection of David Wiluiot, and other cir
cumstances before the war changed the jo
--litieal complexion of that region and Mi-r
--cur leoamo a republican. 11• was elected
to judgeship of the local courts, but after
Ave or six years service thereon, resigned
to accept an ejection to the Forty-second
congress which lie served with much dis
tinction. ill 1X72, in the famous Huckalcw
llartranft campaign, he was the nouiiuce of
the republican party for judge of the su
preme court,and was elected by a large ma
jority which his party had. Since then his
career has IR-011 solely judicial, and in tin
course of time he attained the chief justice
ship of the court from which, had he lived,
he would have retiml on January 1. He
was a known candidate for re-election, but
Quay and otln-r republican liosses had de
creed his defeat and it was generally !*•-
lieved he would not have been nominated,
though many of the lawyers of the state had
declared for him and he had a great many
inAuontial friends. His daughter is the
wife of Colonel It. Frank Eshleuia,of Lan
caster. His son Rodney is a practical law
yer in Towanda. ,lames resides at Wall
iugford. John practices medicine in l'hiht
dclphia. Another s.u, l lyss.s, jr., is a

A Candidate for Justice Mercur's
WILKRSDARRE, June 7.—The lieath
of Chief Justice Mereur having created
a vacancy in the supreme court to be
filled by Governor Heaver, Charles E.
Uice, president judge of the Luzerne
county courts, will be strongly urged
for the posit ion. The Record earnestly
advocates his appointmeut.
The Failure of the Revenue IIIU Labi
on the Senate.
Representative John 13. Robinson,
was in the city yesterday, in speaking
of the revenue bill, said ; "The Gov
ernor ought to call an extra session. It
would; cost the State nothing as the
members would not have the cheek to
ask for pay for a few days' service.
The same mistake about an important
bill took place last session, but fortun
ately the error was discovered in time
and the bill called and signed .
"Regarding whose fault it is that
this revenue bill has failed it wi.l
probably never be known, but I have
my own conviction, based on what oc
curred with bills 1 had in charge, that
the fault is on the Senate side. Mes
sage Clerk Taylor was one of the most
careful and conscientious officials on
the Hill and won the resect of all the
House side by his cleverntss. The Sen
eat has a fashion of chatgingevcry error
on the Ilouse.Chief C'erk Losch, one of
ihemost competent of officials,was dur
ing the session charged with some mis
take; so was Resident Clerk Voorhees,
another excellent and accuiate officer
by the Senate Clerks, and when it was
investigated it was found the fault
was on the Senate side.
"The revenue bill did not go through
in the last bouts, but early in the last
week, when there was plenty of time
and no particular rush."
BLOOMINOTON, Ills., Sep. 18. 1882.
Messrs. F. J. Cheney & Co., Toledo,
Ohio Have taken Hall's Catarrh
Cure. Had catarih all my life ;am 48
years old. Had asthma l'J years, and
a d.eadful cough for five years. Have
taken everything ; went to the Hot
Springs; I have doctored with the doc
tors here; I have done nothing but take
medicine fjr l'J years. When I com
menced using Hall's Catarrh Cure I
was almost dead. I sent for the doctor
the day I got Hall's Catarrh Cine and
I told him that 1 would die any way
and that I w.,uld try your medicine. I
was very bad. How I suffered for t)
years! I could hardly breathe at times.
1 saw Hall's Catarrh Cure advertised
in the papers and commenced taking it.
I would have been under the ground to
day if it had not been for that. 1 have
not had one bad spell of coughing since.
In breathing my head feels well and I
am well. It has done me a thousand
dollars worth of good. There are ten
of my friends, on seeing what it had
done for me, taking it, and it is helping
them. I only wish thateveiy one who
has catairh, asthma and a had cough
could see me, so that I could tell them
all to take it. All that know me here
kr.ow how I have suffered, (I have
been here since 1558.) and say to me
that "I am so glad that you found
something that could cure you." Ev
eryone says, "how much better you
look." The doctors say they are glad
I found flail's Catarih Cure as they
could not cure me.
I cannot express my gratitude to you
for the good Hall's Catarrh Cure has
done me. You can use as much of this
letter as will do the alfiicted good. Pub
lish it to the whole world—it is all true
and tney should know it.
