A Correct Forecast.
It is the opinion of dispassionate
political.observers that the Democrat-
ic chance of defeeting the Repub licans
in this State at the next election de-
pends upon:the action of Quay. If
“Quay shall -succeed in enforcing his
will in the-making of the Republican
ticket the result will likely be Repub-
lican defeat. This view was expressed
the in an interview with ex-
‘Governor Curyin in New York, who,
when questioned as to the political sit-
uation in Pennsylvania, said :
“It looks to me as though Boss Quay would
-succeed in forcingiDelamater on his party.”
“And if he does?
“If he does he would be beaten, that’s all;
that is, if the Demoeratic party makes a wise
nomination. It is my’opinion that about the only
hope the Democrats have of carrying Pennsyl-
vania is in the stupidity of Republicans and
=the aggressiveness of Quay.”
“Governor, how about the recent attacks up-
on Mr. Quay’s private character ?”
The Governor was emphatic in reply. “Quay
has not answered them. Why does he not an-
-awer ? No man can afferd to be silent under
-such a stigma.”
This is unquestionably a correct
view of how the political land lays in
Pennsylvania at this time. Results
depend greatly npon Quay’saction. If aggressive in the making of the
State ticket thousands of Republicans
will decline to give it their support.
And there is every appearance of his
determination to be aggressive.
:It:Should be Investigated.
«Congressman Kerr, of this District,
deserves. credit for introdueing into the
House a resolution asking for an in-
‘vestigation of the charge that James!
CamprELL imported English glass blow-
ers into Pennsylvania in violation of
the law prohibiting the importation of
contract laborers into this country.
CamprriL is tbe fellow whose name
figured in the recent controversy in the
House ‘between Democratic members
Bynum and Wirson and Republican
member Bay~xe. He is one of the tar-
iff shriekers that clamor for high tariff
duties to protect American labor, yet
he is direetly charged with subjecting
that labor to the competition of cheap
European workmen whom he was in-
strumental in bringing into the country.
It is well that he should be ventilated,
but it is not likely that a congress that
is being run in the interest of monopo-
ly will be disposed to investigate Cayp-
BELL'S case, and in all probability Mr,
KERR'S resolution wiil be tabled.
In explaining the recent shut
down of the Tiffin woolen mills, one of
the largest establishments of the kind
in northern Ohio, Superintendent
WavuGH can give no other reason for it
than the effects of the prevailing tariff
which compels woolen manufacturers to
stand the expense of paying heavy du-
ties on a class of foreign wool which is
necessary in the maoutacture of high-
grade woolens, and which is not and
cannot be produced in this country.
“I have been a life-long Republican,”
said Mr. Wavcn. “I tell you thous.
ands of woolen mill operatives in this
couniry, myself among the number,
are having their eyes opened to this
tariff question.”
——1It is charged that W. H. Ax-
DREWS, chairman of the Republican
State cOmunittee, is laying wires to de-
feat Dox CAMERON'S re-election to the
United States Senate. The specific
charge is made that the chairman re-
cently tried to get A. A. Porter and H.
Warrace Broww, Republican candi-
dates for re-election to the Legislature,
to promise that they would vote for
some other candidate than CaMeroN
for United States Senator, if they
should be re-elected to the Legis-
lature—he (Andrews) to name the
man when the time came for action.
The men thus attempted to be influene-
ed declined to put themselves under A~-
DREW’s control, but didn’t obligate
themselves to keen quiet about the at-
tempt that had been made to control
——The delegate elections that oc-
curred this week have disappointed
the expectations of some of the leaders.
DevLamaTer got a decided set-back in
Franklin county, where the delegates
elected will vote in the State conven-
tion for anybody but Quay’s candidate.
At least such is their declaration, but
their present intention may be chang:
ed when influence is brought to bear !
upon them. The delegates from Bed-
ford were 1nstructed for StoNEg, and he
will also get the Elk county dele-
gate who is uninstructed. On the
Democratic side the Huntingdon dele-
tes elected on Monday will vote for
pe and those ot Columbia and
Mercer for Parison.
Farmers and the Censas.

——There are significant surface in-
dications in the Senate that the Tariff
billis in danger of running against a
snag in that body. In the vote on the
question to consider the bill in full,
committee Senators SHERMAN and
MorriLL voted with the Democrats
who carried that measure, thereby in-
suring a hearing to all important in-
terests, and a full and free discussion
which was prevented by Reep’s gag in

Formal Announcement of the Ex-Gov-

PuiLapeLpaIA, May 23.—-A formal an-
nouncemont ot the candidacy Robert E.
Pattison for the Democratic nomination
for Governor was made to-day through
ex-Postmaster William F. ~ Harrity.
While speaking on the Demceratic out-
look Mr. Hrrrity said. :
“It has been stated in some localities
that Mr. Pattison is not a candidate for
Governor, and that if nominated he will
not make an active campaign to win.
This is a ‘mistake. Ihappen to know
authoritatively, and [ speak advisedly
when I say that Governor Pattison is a
candidate, and will be to the end ; that
he will very much appreciate the honor
of the nomination for Governor, and that
when nominated he will promptly begin
an active, energetic and aggressive cam-
paign to lead the party to victory as he
did in 1882.”

W. C. T, U. Convention.
Some years ago, when the oreat Web-
ster made light of the abolition move-
ment as the work of a few women and
clergymen, Calhoun replied that the
danger lay in that very fact ; that wom-
en were the agitators, To-day a far
greater and wider spread evil than ever
slavery meant to the African, a bordage
which recognizes no color line, nor di-
vision of Mason and Dixon to protect it,
an evil which annually numbers its vie-
tims by tens of thousa.ds, is threatened,
and the death kuell of the liquor traffic
is being rung from the Atlantic to the
Pacific. ‘Who is doing 1t? The agita-
tors; ‘the women, who, to-day, are more
feared by the liquor sellers than even
the “Prince of Darkness 7” himself. He
never troubles them ; they are doing his
work well and faithfully, and he can
safely trust them. The magic letters,
‘W. C. T. U., have been aptly interpret-
ed, “women continually trouble us ;”
and not only have the dear ladies of
Bellefonte been accused of painting
green the beautiful bronze angel which
continually refreshes both man and
beast, and which wns presented to the |
City Fathers by the W. C. T. U., and
bence is no longer theirs to adorn, but re-
cently, when a number of young gentle-
men applied to the Court for a charter
to open a club room, the Court, seeing
fit to deny it, one of our young editors,
in criticising the action of the Court,
politely (?) spoke of us as “the old wom-
en,” and gave us credit for far more in-
fluence with the Court than we ever
dreamed we possessed. However, these
little incidents, trivial in themselves, go |
to prove that the man of to-day differs
but little from the first man—Adam—
in one respect. “The woman whom
thou gavest me,” as of old, must hear

the large majority the county gave in
its favor was due to our previous years
work. as well as during the campaign;
but “Ye did run well, who hath hinder-
ed you ?” might be justly said of us
since. The discouragement of the de-
feat of June 18th, followed by the—we
cannot but feel—uncalled for withdraw-
al of some of onr faithful workers, to
form a new organizatiin in the State,
has been hard to rally from; but the

that He has preserved this peace and

though we may not all see with one eye,
let us all “Strive to live with an eye sin-
gle to God’s glory.”
Let me urge upon you a more thor-
ough consecration and a more determin-
ed effort to increase our membership.
| We do not doubt that the Lord has? laid
the werk upon us, nor that as He hath
led in the past, so He will continue to
lead. We believe thatout of the defeats,
and apparently adverse decisions of
higher and lower courts, He is overrul-
ing all to ring about His own plans.
Our eyes are only holden for a little sea-
son. The recent decisions of the Na-
tional Supreme Court, in the Kansas
ligour case, namely : that any State has
a right to ship liquor into u Prohibition
State without molestation, or seizure,
but proves that Prohibition, to be effec-
tive, must be made a National issue.
Mr. Lincoln said of slavery that “the
public mind must rest in the belief. that
1t is in the process of extinction.” So
we believe that all these current events
are God’s answers to the cries of Iis
Last year our work suffered from lack
of system. This year let me urge upon
officers and superintendents of local Un-
ions, when appointed to at once com-
municate with County officers and sup-
erintendents in regard to their wor,
thereby “stirring up the pure minds” of
County superintendents and increasing
their diligence in the work. Our State
has made scientific temperance instruc-
tion the work of the year. Let every
Union see that a capable, intelligent
woman, whose heart isin the work, fills
the office of superintendent, and those
who are neither officers nor superintend-
ents should be the Aarons and Hurs,
holding up the hands of the workers,
both with words of encouragement and
liberal pocket books. Weare =o happy
ourselves in having a iarge-liearted Mrs,
Aaron as one of our members, that it we
tell it, it may be suggestive to others.
A few days ago our treasurer received a
check from this generous member for
$30, not her first either, for last year she
gave us $20, and has for several years
given us these pleasant surprises, never
binding the gift with any suggestions or
limitations; thus showing her confi-
dence in the honesty and faithfulness of
our efficient treasurer. No good cause
can be carried on successfully unless
those who are interested learn to give
towards it. Money is needed, and
money should be supplied to carry on
the Juvenile and Sunday school work
in every local Union. Papers, cards,
prizes fof essays on alcohol, tobacco and
kindred topics, should be in the hands
of our workers to attract and educate
children. Literature should be scatter-
ed freely and good temperance papers
be in the homes of gur ministers, school
superintendents and day-school teachers.
Dear sisters,do not forget that the little
bow of white ribbon is itselt an educu-
tor; keep it for every day use, not pinn-
ed on the dress or coat ‘aleve that you
wear to the meeting. Remember it
means, “I am pledged to do all in my
power to promote the cause of temper-
ance.” Let it be so much a part of you
that when your busy hands ure peace-
fully folded, loving hands will pin the
little bow in its place, for you wonld
not lock like mother or sister with-
out it.
I close with the advice of our beloved
Francis Willard, “Never speak a dis-
couraging word of the work or the work-
ers’. And whate’er thou findest to do,
do that thy best.”

Relinquish not one whit of toil, whatever be
thy pain.”

Senator Wallace Speaks.
James R. Tyson, of Reading, a mem-
ber of the county agricultural society, a
few days ago asked William A. Wallace
this, by letter: “Upon what grounds
can the farmers of Berks or any other
counties of Pennsylvania claim that
your nomination and election as Gover-
nor of this state would condict with the
interests of the farmers? Is there any
known reason for this assertion ?”
In his reply, promptly given, Mr. -
Wallace says: “In my record as Sena-
tor, both at Harrisburg and at Washing- |
ton, neither speech nor vote of nine can
be found upon which to base such an
opinion. It was and is my constant
effort as a public man to be just toevery
important interest in the state, and I
never by vote orspeech have discriminat-
ed against the agricultural interest, for a
long lease of production and prosperity
in that field are vital to prosperity in
every other. I have repeatedly written
and spoken against the system of double
taxation that now oppresses it. In my
professional life I have never been what
is commonly known as a corporation at-
torney. Since retiring from legal prac-
tice I have aided in building railroads to
develop the mineral resources of the sec-
tion of the state in which I live, and un-
til September, 1889, I acted for four
years, without salary, as the president of
one of those railroads. In the history of
my public and professional life, which is
open to all, I believe it will be found
that I have tried to do my duty toward
all of the people. I awn very sure that
sich has been my aim, and such it will
continue to be whether in official life or
in that of private citizen.”
Republican Papers on Quay.
Unless Senator Quay takes some no-
tice of the charges of the New York
World and the Evening Post, the general
public will take it for granted that he is
a scoundrel. Does the Senator think
these specific indictments are child’s
play ?—Topeka. Capital.
Should the Pennsylvania Senator be
ambitious to hold hereafter some higher
positior. than he has yet held,and should
these same charges then be preferred
against aim, he would have to meet and
refute them, else they might seriously
interfere with the realization of that
ambition.—Columbus State Journal.
A United States Senator, the manager
of the Republican party’s campaign, an
active man in the high councils of the
nation, the obligation of Quay to weet
the charges is more than a personal one,
and, if he fails to do so,the party has but
the one thing to do, to repudiate utterly
the man and his methods. — Greenfield
(Mass.) Gazette.
Senator Quay is putting the wrong in-
terpretation on the adage “Silence is
golden.” Perhaps he means to stick to
his own axiom. “Addition, division and
silence.” If so, either the Repubiican
party or Mr. Quay must pay the penal-
ty. Which shall it be ?—Minneapolis
Senator Quay is deservedly praised
for his habit of reticence, but there are
times in the lives of all men when they
need to say something, and he is just
now facing a situation of that sort.—
Missouri Globe-Democrat.
Now, Mr. Quay is not only active in
the management of party uffairs, but he
represents the great State of Pennsyl-
vanian in the United States Senate. If
these charges are true he should be com-
pelled to seek the obscurity which alone
can shelter such a criminal record. If
they are false he owes it to himself, to
his State and to his party,to demand an
investigation, and to punish as they de-
serve the men who make defamation of
private character the instrument of polit-
ical hate. Too long time has already
elapsed since these things were published
without any move to inquire into or re-
fute them. Mr. Quay cannot afford to
maintain silence a day longer.—Se. Paul

Paid High for His Revenge.
dn Dwa Farmer Charged $700 for a
Tar and Feather Exploit.
It costs just $700 to tar and feather a
man in Iowa. C. A. Chambers,a wealthy
farmer near Thurman, was assessed that
amount by a jury recently. In Novem-
ber last he sent his wife to Hot Springs,
Ark., for treatment for some nervous
affection. While she was absent some
suspicion was aroused that all wasn’t
right between her and a school teacher
named Wolfenberger, who had come
from Monroe county. After the wife
started for home a long letter from
Wolfenberger was picked up in the
room she had vacated at Hot Springs
and forwarded to the husband.
It began with the warmest protesta-
tions of love, and showed in exact
terms that numerous letters of a simi-
lar kind had passed between them.
As soon as the husband received the
letter he consulted his brother and
some of the neighbors, and they con-
cluded that a coat of tar and feathers
would be appropriate punishment. On
the evening of December 16, after
schocl hours, the outraged husband
and his brother and the brother of
his wife met at the school-house, and
after reading the letter to Wolfenberger,
and after his confession that he wrote
and sent it, they applied a coat of tar
