DEMOCRATICCOUNTY CONVENTION, —
On Tuesday at one o'clock the Dem-
ocratic eounty convention was called to
order by chairman Heinle. On calling
the roll every district was found to be
fully represented. Notwithstanding the
fact that but a small ticket was to be
nominated and that there had been much
less than usual political excitement at-
tendant upon the canvass of the county
by the different candidates, there was a
good representation of earnest Democrats
who came to witness the work of the
convention and do what they could to
press harmony and ‘encourage earnest
and active work in behalf of the success-
ful nominees. In looking over the body
of delegates one could readily see that
they were an intelligent, earnest body of
men, who had met for the single pur-
pose of voicing the sentiment of the
Democratic voters of the county, as ex-
pressed at the primaries on Saturday last.
There were no contests, nor was there
vention was open to all and the unanim-
ity with which the business of the con-
vention was enacted left no grounds for
complaint,and consequently no growlers.

administration. Messrs. Gordon Wyche

A motion to select a committee on res-

J. Herring, of Gregg; Geo. BE. Parker,
of Philipsburg; Col. Jas. F. Weaver,
of Boggs and J. H. Reifsnyder, of
Millheim, who after a short absence re-
ported the following which were unani-
mously adopted :
The Democracy of Centre county, in con-
vention assembled :
Resolve, That we heartily congratulate the
party upon the splendid record of ex-presi-
dent Grover Cleveland who in his retirement
enjoys not only the proud satisfaction of
knowing that every promise made hy the
Democratic National ~ platform of 1884 was
faithfully carried out, but that he has the re-
spect and confidence of the American people
who are day after day realizing toa greater
and fuller extent the effects of his pure, up-
right and eflicient administration of public
2nd. That we heartily reaffirm the princi-
ples set forth in the platform enunciated by
the last Democratic National Convention as be-
ing the principles most conductive to the pros-
perity of the country and especially to promote
our agricultural, manufacturing and commer-
3rd. That we condemn the administration
of President Harrison for his hypocritical
claims to the enforcement of the principles of
Civil Service Reform, while honest and capable
officials by thousands are dismissed from the
public service for no other reason than that
they are Democrats ; for his open prostitution
of the public patronage to promote partizan
purposes in the various states to reward hench-
men and bosses ; for his glaring and shamefnl
distribution of offices among the members of
his family, turning the Presidency, the highest
earthly honor, into private property, to be bar-
tered and nsed for his personal convenience
and family gain, thereby introducing nepotism
contrary to the fundamental principles of our
We are unalterably opposed to the fostering
of monopolies, trasts and combines, tending to
enrich the fi nd oppress the many, and hold
an party to the condemnation
of the people for its open alliance with the pro-
moters of these trusts and monopolies both in
the state and nation.
4th. We denounce the Republican legisla-
tion as shown in the use of public moneys for
for their betrayal of the interests of the work-
ingmen; for their double dealing with prohibi-
tion; for their subserviency to bossism, jobbery
and boodle, making the legislature of 1889 the
monumental disgrace of the Commonwealth.
6th. We proudly invite a comparison be-
tween the fair returns of capital and just earn-
ings of labor under the administration of Gro-
, ver Cleveland, and the embarrassment of our
industries and the rednction of the wages of
the workingmen under the administration of
| President Harrison, and submit whether the
promises and pledges made by the Republican
party in the last campaign were not a snare
and cheat to secure the votes of the working
The first busine:s being the nomina-
tion of candidates for Associate Judge,
the names of Thos. F. Riley of Harris
township and, John F. Heckman of
Gregg, were placed before the conven-
tion. The balloting resulted, 59 for Ri-
ley and 38 for Heckman. Br. Riley
was declared the nominee and his nomi-
nation was made unanimous.
For Prothonotary but
were announced, L. A. Schaffer of Belle-
fonte, and M. 1. Gardner of Howard.
As soon as the balloting was over, which
showed that Mr. Schaffer received 80
and Mr. Gardner 15 votes, Mr. Gard-
ner, who was in the convention, arose
and asked that the nomination of Mr.
Schaffer be made unanimous, and in a
few well chosen words, declared his in-
tention to do all he could for his success-
ful competitor and hoped that every
Democrat in the county would do his
duty by supporting the ticket earnestly
and cheerfully. Mr. Gardner was loud-
ly applauded and made for himself hosts
of friends by the manly way in which
he accepted his defeat.
For District Attorney the present effi-
cient incumbent of the office was re-
nominated by acclamation.
The Democratic vote of the county at
the last Presidential election having in-
creased the representation of the county
to the State convention, Mr. W.F.
Reber of Bellefonte was chosen with-
out opposition as the additional delegate
to the convention of 18389, and P.Gray

——Last Friday afternoon Mr. Charles
A. McCauley, head book-keeper of
the firm of R. B. Wigton & Sons, of
Philipsburg, died suddenly under very
sad circumstances. He had been in ill
health for some time and was attending
the funeral of his little child. After the
ceremony was over in the cemetery, an
accident occurred just outside the gates
of the burial ground eausing the horses
to kick violently. This so excited the
ladies in the carriage that they screamed
loudly, and in his eager desire to assist
them Mr. McCauley was observed to
stumble and fall. Heart affection had
overtaken him and death ensued.
In giving fuller particulars of Mr.
McCauley’s death, the Philipsburg
Journal of Saturday says: The carriage
in which Mr. McCauley and wife were
seated was Mr. 'W. H. Wigton’s and
followed immediately behind the hearse.
Next came the carriage of Mr. W. P.
Duncan. One of the horses of the team
by some means got aleg over the tongue
of the carriage, and in trying to extri-
cate itself from the position caused an
amount of excitement which reached
the carriage occupied by Mr. and Mrs.
McCauley. The scream which came
from Mrs. McCauley, added to his weak
condition and the fright, and possibly an
affection of the heartcaused by the rheu-
matism from which he had been suffering
for so long, was the cause of the death.
He was lifted from the carriage, and
medical aid sent for. The funeral cere-
mony was conducted by Rev. S. A. Cor-
nelius, but Mrs. McCauley’s condition
was so critical that she did not attend at
the grave. Dr. Allport was speedily in
attendance, but the stricken one was
past all human aid.
Mr. McCauley has resided in this dis-
trict for many years, but has lived in
Philipsburg for about three years only.
He was 42 years of age and leaves a wife
and five children to mourn his sad and
untimely death. He was a Freemason
and a member of the Osceola Lodge, No.
515, of the Clearfield Chapter, and also
the Commandery of Knights Templars
of Bellefonte. He was also a member
of the K. of G. E., of Phillipsburg.

Death or Hon. JouN Irvin, Jr.—
[n the death of this gentleman, which
occurred at his residence on High street,
Bellefonte, August 14, inst., at 1.30 p.
m., our community loses one of its oldest
members and the rank of business men
one of its brightest ornaments.
Judge Irvin was born March 13, 1808,
on the farm of his grand-father, William
Fisher, in Spring township then, now
Boggs, near Snow Suoe Intersection.
His grand-father, William Fisher, be-
longed to the Friends Society, and re-
moved from Chester county to Bald
Eagle Valley in 1800, and in 1812 built
the stone mansion, a well known land-
mark still standing near the Intersection.
His daughter, Mary Fisher, was mar-
ried to John Irvin, Sr., at Muncy meet-
ing-house, Lycoming county. John Ir-
vin, Sr., removed to Bellefonte in 1811,
and in 1859 died in his seat while at-
tending worship at the Friends meeting
house in Bellefonte. His wife survived
him many years and died in the 91st
year of her age, at her residence in Belle-
fonte, and the fragrance of her beautiful
life still lingers in the home she left for
the brighter one above.
John Irvin, Jr.,commenced business
as a clerk for Valentines .and Thomas,
the iron manufacturers of Spring town-
ship, and was promoted manager. After
learning the iron business thoroughly,
while still a young man he went with
Mordecai Miller to Kentucky and in
connection with him started a furnace
there. He was married, October 19,
1837, to Anna H. Linn, daughter of the
late Rev, James Linn, D. D., and took
her to his new home home in Kentucky
where several of their children were
From Kentucky Mr. Trvin returned
to Bellefonte and in 1841 became associ-
ated in the mercantile business with the
late Henry Brockerhoff. The firm of
Brockerhoff and Irvin was dissolved by
limitation in 1846. Mrs. Anna H.
Irvin died March 27, 1847, and
in 1884 Mr. Irvin removed to
Howard Iron Works as Superintendent
and part owner, carrying on the works
under the firm name of Irvin, Thomas
and Co. In 1865 the works were sold to
Griscom, Bright and Co., and Mr. Irvin
returned to Bellefonte, having purchased
the residence of the late a L
Burnside which remained his hothe ever
He then associated in the hardware
business with the late Col. P. Benner
Wilson, underthe firm name of Irvin
& Wilson. This firm soon established
a large trade and built a handsome hard-
ware store building on Allegheny street.
Mr. Irwin retired from the firm in 1872,
and on the 17th of August 1876 he was
commissioned by Gov. Hartranft As-
sociate Judge of the several Courts of
Centre county, vice W. W. Love, de-
ceased. Since the expiration of his com-
mission he has been actively employed
in managing his private business and the
important trusts committed to him under
the will of the late W. A. Thomas, de-
During his life Judge Irvin managed a
very large amount of business with skill
and success. Having excellent business
habits, good memory, sound judgment
and great knowledge of men, he made
few if any mistakes, and he retained his
remarkable business ability up to with-
in a few days of his death, surviving all
of his businessassociates.
Judge Irvin was a life-long member
of the Society of Friends. He was affa-
‘ble and cordial to those whosought him;
kind and engaging in his manners; and
with good tastes and many acquirements
he became a model business man. By
strong self control he kept a constitution
not of the most rugged eharacter in
healthful condition, and lived in appa-
rent freedom from the ordinary weakness
and sufferings of old age, and after a
short illness passed away quietly and
Even at his advanced age it is sad for
his children and friends to part with him;
but their loss is his gain, and their com-
fort rests in pleasant recollections of his
kindness and gentleness; aud that he is
now united with her whom he lost so
early in life and his kindred dead who
have gone before him.
Of his brothers and sisters who sur-
vive him are Ellis Irvin, of Lick Run
Mills, Clearfield county; Mrs. Malissa
J. Hagerman, of Bellefonte ; Mrs. James
C. Williams, of Philipsburg ; Dr. James
Irvin, of Wyoming Territory, and Mrs.
M. J. Hyman of Milwaukee, Wis-
consin. His surviving children are Mis.
M. F¥. Blanchard, widow of Edmund
Blanchard, Esq.,and Mm. Jennie L.
Bright, wife af Joseph ©. Bright, of
Pottsville. His funeral will take place
on Saturday at 2 o’clock p. m., from his
late residence on High street. *
