The Quay—Magee Convention.
* The Quay—MAaGEE combine, gener-
ally called the Republican state con-
vention, met in Harrisburg,on Wed nes-
day, and fixed up matters to suit the
two bosses. This of course will suit
the crowds that wear their re spective
collars.. Their work was practically
harmonious, for the reason that a har-
monious settlement of some street rail-
way franchises in Pittsburg, in which
both were financially interested, had
been arranged some months ago, and
when harmony exists between these
two political moguls there is nothing
for the people, who do their bidding, to
quarrel about.
Dgeax, who was backed by Magee,
was nominated for Supreme Judge;
McDoweLL, a special protege of
Quay’s,and LILLY a worshiper of Cay-
ERON, were selected as candidates for-
congressman at large. A slated list of
delegates and electors fixed up the
night before by these bosses, were
named without opposition. ~~ The
grangers, who wanted TAGGERT as a
congressional candidate, and the dark-
ies who wanted Day as a delegate-at
large, got nothing.
A resolution congratulating Quay
on his success in knocking out DazgLy,
was voted down, but another onere.
cognizing his “eminent party services”
went through with a hurrah.
The platform begins with creation
and ends with the Boyer tax-bill
claiming everything good, but the
birth of Curist, as the results of Re
publican rule, and charging every
evil that has befallen the world since
the flood, as a consequence of Demo-
cratic teaching.
It expresses “‘unbounded’’ confidence
in BExsamin Harrison, but does not
hanker after another dose of him, and
sends ite delegates to Minneapolis, with-
out either instructions or a request, to
give him their support.
The McKINLEY bill gets a full share
of commendation, but no where in all
the length of this extraordinarily
lengthy deliverance, could we see that
it “points with pride,” to the increased
wages workingmen were promised un-
der this bill,or to the good times it was
to secure to all classes of our citizens,
As a whole, the work of the com.
bine is no better and possibly no worse
than the people of Pennsylvania ex-
pected, and have become used to. It’s
nominees are men of fair reputation,
asreputation now goes, but have no in-
herent or personal strength that will
make them stronger than their party
or add a vote to the Republican col-
umn in the fall. On the other hand
Judge Deax’s connection with corpor-
atoins ; McDowELL’s slavish subser-
viency to QuavisM and LrLLy’s well
known opposition to the interests of
the laboring men, should make the
ticket a particularly weak one, and one
that with all its boasted majority the
Republican party might find difficulty
in electing.
As Quiet as a Corpse.
During the administration of presi-
dent CLEVELAND, that class of politi-
cians and newspapers that pretend (and
we honestly believe some of them
think,) they are better than. others,
were continuous in their praise of civil
service reform, and just as persistent
in their denunciations of the Democrat-
ic authorities, when occasions required
the kicking out of a Republican rascal
and placing in his place a Democrat.
The country took this opposition to
removals from office for political rea.
sons, in good faith, and actually came
to believe that these men and pa-
pers were honest in their professions
and were determined to oppose any
political party that did not recognize
and carry out their doctrines of civil
service reform.
For his adherence to this belief and
his efforts to satisfy this Mugwum- |
pian idea, Grover CLEVELAND, lost the
support of thousands of old-line Demo-
crats—and the election.
Harricox went into office under a
promise to the people, that this new, i
non-political, theory should have a fair
trial, and that the Mugwumps, and
Reformers, as these holier-than-thou
people denominate themselves, would
find no reason to complain.
He has turned every Democrat out
of office he found in, and put in place
every hungry Republican who applied
as long as there were places to fill and
they have made no complaint ; he has
violated every promise of giving their
theory, of non-partisan appointments,a
full and fair test and they have failed
to protest against his action; he has
even gone 2s far as to allow his Secre-
tary of the Treasury to remove a Fed-
eral office holder, who as a Republican
official had performed his duties
faithfully, because he would not use his
official position to assist a faction of
his own party to choose delegates to
Minneapolis, whom a political boss de-
sired, and as yet the Mugwump voice,
seems paralyzed,
What is wrong?
Do these protessed reformers, de-
mand civil service reform only when
Democrats are in control, or why is it
we hear nothing from the advocates of
their doctrine, about the violation of
Republican pledges, to carry it
Tell us, oh ye Mugwumps, what of
the Foster—BrLiss-—MILHOLLAND,case?
Is civil service reform dead ?
Or are‘those who professed to advo-
cate it hypocrits ?
A “Victory” that Looks like Defeat.
If people always knew when they
were defeated, what a wonderful amount
of rejoicing, would have been denied
our Republican friends over the re-
sults of the recent election in Rhode
Island. Sincethe noise of their glorifica-
tion has died out, and the dust of the
contest settled down, so that we can
hear and see and understand just what
was done, the Rhode Island Republi
can victory turns out to be a victory
than won nothing for that party that
it did not already have, and a success
that failed being a most disastrous de-
feat, only by the smallest kind of a ma-
Since 1852, that state has stood un-
falteringly by the Republican parity.
It has never, since that date, scored a
Democratic victory in a presidential
year, and at no time has its Republi-
can majority been less than 2,000 ve. ~s.
At times it has ran as high as £5,000:
At the recent election it squeezes
through with a beggarly majority of
134 votes.
These are the correct, official figures
over which we have heard so much
blowing. They are the result of a con-
test, unequaled in intensity, earnestness,
and efforts, such as was never before ex-
perienced, and show this one undeni-
able fact, that Republicanism cannot
hold its own, even in a state where
every condition of politics is in its favor,
and that it must look to some issue,
other than its protective tariff ideas, if
it would make a hopeful fight in the
Taking into consideration the voting
population of New York, Ohio, Indi-
ania, Illinois, Michigan, and Wiscon-
sin, and let the Republicans lose in
proportion to the whole vote in either
or all of these states, as they did in
Rhode Island, they would be unmerci-
fully defeated in every single one of
them. The same proportionate loss
in Pennsylvania, would make it so near
a tie that the result would not be known
until the official count was promul-
And such is the “victory” Republi-
cans are content to crow over in Rhode
Republican papers that cogtin-
ually point to the imprisonment of
BarpsiLey as evidence of Republican
justice for Republican mal-feasance,
forget that it was not the Republicans
who puthim there. It was his own con-
fession of the crime that did the job.
After he confessed, what else,under the
sun, could the Republican courts do
but pronounce the sentence the law
imposes for such offences?
Toe MEYERS VoriNne MacHINE~ Remark ble
statements are made on behalf of the Meyers
press-the-button voting machine, which has
just been tested in Lockport, N. Y. If half
that is claimed for it is true itis so perfect
that Jjmortal imperfection should almost be
ashamed to adopt it in the frail and erring
business of political elections. It will, so it is
said, accept and register the votes ot a whole
precinct within the half hour, secretly, accur-
ately, blindly and impartially. It demands of
the voter only the ability to read the names of
the candidates above the buttons which he
must press, and while permitting him to vote
on every office, makes it impossible for him to
repeat. The use of the Meyers machine at
town elections was authorized by ithe New
York Legislature last March and the Lock-
port election gave it its first trial. The aver-
age time for voting at Lockport was twenty
seconds and the result of the election was
known within ten minutes after thepoll closed.
It seems impossible to believe that the New !
York Legislature bas permitted an honest ma- i
chine to go into actual use. But if the meyers
machine is all that it is asserted to be,it should
go into use everywhere without the delay of
a single session of any Legislature that can
pass upon it.—Phila. Times.
The machine to which the Times re-
fers is the invention of a former citizen
: of this place, Mr. J. H. MEYERs. It
| has been adopted as the system of vot-
ing at all local elections in New York,
and will eventually supercede all other
systems, whether for local or general
| elections. Itisso far superior to the
Australian system in securing secrecy,
rapidity and fairness in voting and the
absolute certainty of a fair count, that
the two systems are not to be compared
in the same day. It is the coming sys-
tem of States that desire honest election,
and we congratulate our former towns-
man on the certainty of the success
that awaits his invention.

WasHiNgTON, April 18.-—The mo-
dus vivendi for the protection of the
Behriog Sea seal fisheries during the
pending of arbitration, which has been
the subject of negotiations between Se-
cretary Blaine and the British minister,
was brought to the capitol about 1
o’clock this afternoon, and for some rea-
son was under an injunction of secrecy,
and therefore was not laid before the
senate in open session. Mr. Sherman,
however, was notified by the president
of the nature of the communication, and
he moved that the senate go into execu-
tive sessicn. Accordingly, the people
werg cleared out of the galleries, the
doors were closed and then the seals
were broken and the modus was read to
the senate.
It appeared from the reading of the
document that Mr, Blaine and the Brit-
ish minister have been spending the
time since March 26 ‘last, when the
British government consented to renew
the modus vivendiin trying to phrase
the conditions relative to damageso as to
secure advantages for their respective
governments. Indeed, it appears that
all of the hesitation and rcluctance ex-
hibited by Great Britain in consenting
to the renewal , was assumed with the
purpose of obliging this government to
accept terms for the adjustment of dam-
ages that would insure Great Britain
against heavy loss in the event of the
decision adverse to her by the arbitrators
and on the other hand, would promise
the assessment of such a’sum of money
against the United States as would go
far towards healing the soreness still
felt by the Brirish diplomats at the for-
midatle judgment rendered against
them by the Geneva arbitration.
Secretary Blaine has been endeavor-
ing to bring the statement of liabilities
of the two parties back to the basis laid
down in Mr. Wharton’s note of July
23 last, while the British government
has sought to escape the direct responsi-
bility for the unwarrantable killing of
seals and for any thing more than the
difference between the 7,500 skins
which lesses of the seal islands took and
the 100,000 skins they might have tak-
en had the modus of last year been en-
forced. The agreement just reached is
said to be a fair means between the two
extreme proportions. It appears that it
will, unlike the first modus, require the
approval of the senate, inasmuch as the
last document proposes a permanent
settlement of damages and provides for
the means of adjusting the claims.
The discussion to-day was generally in
the same line that has characterized the
preceding debates, and some senators
called attention to what they regarded
as imperfections in the document. It
was finally referred to the committee on
foreign relations.
Excitement in a Theatre.
PI1TsBURG, Pa., April 19.—Duringa
performance at the World’s theatre,
McKeesport, to-night Frank Seargeant,
known as “Oklahoma Frank,’’ shot and
probably fatally injured his assistant
Frank Ferguson. Seargeantis a rifle
expert and a large audience was present
to see the crack shooting. At 9.80
o'clock Seargeant came out to perform
his most thrilling act of shooting an ap-
ple from the head of Ferguson. The
audience was breathless as the two men
took their places thirty feet apart.
Seargeant turned his back to the target
and after adjusting the mirror fired the
shot which has hit the apple for five
years. At the report of the rifle Fergu-
son threw up his hands, staggered a fow
steps and fell upon the stage, blood
gushing from his head. Instantly the
audience was in an uproar. Several
women fainted and a panic was narrow-
ly averted. Thecurtain was rung down
and Dr. Black called in. The ball
struck in the centre of the forehead, just
above the eyes, and it is’ feared entered
the brain. Ferguson is still uncon-
scious, and the physician is unable to
say whether he will live or not. The
audience was calmed by the announce-
ment that Ferguson was not dangerous-
ly hurt and was then dismissed. Fer-
gusonwas removed to his home, where
he is now lying in a critical condition.
Seargeant says whether Ferguson lives
or dies he hasshot the last apple from
the head of a human being. The acci-
dent was similar to the one that result-
ed in the death of Mrs. Frank Frayne
several years ago.

She May Die.
McKxEesport, Pa., April 18.—At the
meeting of the Salvation army in this
city last night, about 10 o’clock, Miss
Agnes Stewart, who was in attendance,
fell to the floor in a spasm, being over-
come by excitement. She is 17 years
old and lives with her parents at Char-
ity park. She was carried from the hall
to the home of a friend, where she is
lying in a critical condition,
Favors Fred Douglas for President.
INDIANAPOLIS, Ind., April 17.—Bis-
hop Brown of the A. M. KE. church is
visiting here and in an interview yester-
day, favored the nomination of Fred
Douglass for President. He said it
would tend to concentrate the colored
vote and that would show to the great
parties what it is really worth. “It
would create a spirit of solicitation’ he
continued, “and would get protection
from political motives if nothing more.
We do not get the protection from the
Federal government that we should
have. Prejudice as it prevails, only
breeds outrages like the Memphis affair.
There is prejudice in ‘Washingtoa, in
New York, everywhere. If the negro
was more independent he would be bet-
ter protected.”
Officer's Costly Revenge.
A Man Arrested Without a Warrant Sues Scran-
ton for $20,000.
ScrANTON, Pa., April 16.—A police
officer was passing by William Bo-
land’s livery stable last night, when Mr.
Boland made an uncomplimentary re-
mark about the patrolman. The latter
reported the matter at the police station,
and he and the sergeant went out and
arrested the liveryman. Judge Gem-
ster when he heard the case to-day, was
indignant because their had been no
warrant for the arrest, and the prisoner
was’discharged. Boland at once began
a suit against the city for $20,000 dam-

LiveLy TiMEs AT THE ForGE.—It
is seldom that one hears ofsuch a thing
as a mother, father and son being drunk,
bui such an occurrence took place, at the
Valentine Iron Company’s furnace, on
Saturday evening last. The old lady
had procured a gallon of whiskey and
straightway proceeded to fill herself up
on its contents. Ebullition was going on’
rapidly when the old gentleman appear-
ed. He took in the situation at a glance
and concluding that he had taken her
for a little better than she was then
demonstrating herself to be, began
drowning his sorrow in the jug which
had destroyed his wife’s equilibrium.
His sheets were soon in the wind too,
and when the son came home remorse
took such a strong hold on him that
rather than sec his parents in such a
condition and have to think of their
Bacchanalian revelry, with shame, in
the future, he fell in with them. Oh,
such fun.
The old man blackened the old wom-
an’s eyes and the son returned the com-
pliment, on behalf of his mother. The
woman scratched and howled like mad,
but soon they became loving again.
The ‘‘razzle dazzle’ was danced, ‘“Ta-
ra-ra-boom-de-ay !”’—was sung, and
they made ‘Rome howl,” in that vicinity
for several hours. The inside of the
house was entirely demolished. Dishe$
were broken, furniture smashed and
stoves upset. Outside they sallied, and
fired stones through every pane of glass
in their domicile. Oh! What a glori-
ous “jag” they did have on. The truth
is they have been nursing big heads ever
Shame on such people. For shame
that we have them in our community
——We wont vouch for the truth of
the following, which we get from a cor-
respondent of the Philadelphia Inquirer.
If anyone is anxious to know how cor-
rect or reliable the story is we presume
he can find out by inquiring of Major
Curtin, who is made sponsor for the
story : .
“Hverybody in the National Guard
of Pennsylvania knows what a strict
disciplinarian James A. Beaver was
when he was Governor. Austin Cur-
tin, who is from his native town, told
me this reminiscence about him at the
Coleman House the other day: While
Beaver was lieutenant-colonel of the
Forty-fifth Regiment he was sitting in
front of his tent one day, when a sloven-
ly soldier with a very badly fitting uni-
form lounged up and asked ¢
‘Vere ish der doctor ?”’
“Sir; is that the way you address
your superior officer ?”” roared Colonel
The German stared at him in amaza-
ment without saying a single word.
Then Colonel Beaver said :
“Take this chair , sir, and I will show
you how to address an officer.”
‘An’ me vas der boss of der regi-
ment 7”
“Yes, sit here and I will show you
how to act.” .
The new recruit sat down in Beaver’s
seat and the Col. walked off a few paces,
turned about, returned to a position in
in front of his temporary substitute,
wheeled around, and making a military
salute, inquired : :
“Colonel, ean you inform me where
Ican find the surgeon of the regi-
ment 7”
The recruit arose, and luok seriously
at Beaver, replied : “D—— if I know
where he is.”

W. J.and J. F. Meyers spent last Sunday at
the bedside of their aged mother, who is quite

Our young merchant D. C. Krebs reports,

Clellan Rossman are looking about for differ-

ter General Wanamaker was seen on our
streets last week. That prince of good fellows
C. M. Whipple is the owner of it and we

The Pine Grove water company recently
held their annual meeting, for the purpose of
electing officers and auditing committees
with the following result: J. G. Hess was
elected President, W. B. Ward Esq. Treasurer
Directors Joseph Ward, Chas Smith and J. L.
The post office excitement scarcely passed
away, when the sprightly form of Col. J. W-
Stewart was, seen on our streets; earnestly

The death rate in our G. A. R. Posts, in this
part of the county, has for the past few years
been small, but on the 15 inst. there came the
summons, which all must obey, to one of our
number. With sadness members of Zentmey-
er and Campbell posts, in a body, followed the
remains of Comrade George Goodwin to his
final resting place, in the Penna Furnace
cemetery. His tent is the mound that will
soon grow green over which the stars and
stripes will be unturled on Memorial day. He
was a member of Co.E. 45, Reg. P. V. and
leaves awife and a large family of children to
mourn the loss of a kind father and a true and
brave defender of the Republic.
On the 14 inst. there was a most pleasan
gathering at the Luthern Parsonage, at this
place, it was soon learned that Mr. Zet-
tle and Miss Eby, of Lemont, accompanied by
a few special friends, presented themselves at
the alter where Rev.C. T. Aikens united them
in the holy bonds of wedlock. After the usual
happy greetings they took their leave for their
home at Lemont.
And still they come: On the same date a
quite wedding came off away down in that
quiet town of Boalsburg, at the Lutheran par.
sonage, by Rev. Trostle. On this auspicious
occasion Mr. A. J. Tate Jr., oldest son of A. J.
Tate Esq., espoused Miss Annie Bottorf, the
admirable and refined daughter of Mr. and
Mrs. P. F. Bottorf. The nuptial ceremony
over the newly wedded couple were most cor-
dially received at the home of the groom’s par-
ents where the usual feast, of good things of
the land, was partaken of. Oh, then the awful
Calithumpians. Miss Anna is one of our best
young ladies and having had a training under
one of the best of mothers will make a model
wife, there is do doubt. The groom is well
known, of good character, intellectual, and of
generous impulses. Andrew may you and
your fair bride be forever happy with no dark
clouds to darken the brightness of your matri-
monial sky, and the world always seem bright

Dear Sir.
Your kind wishes, and of the many friends
of Bellefonte, for a prosperous voyage were
realized. The fact is after 8 days of sea and as
many by land, I reached home safe and sound
as a gold dollar. This is the sixth time that
I have crossed the ocean, butthe onlyone I
have, escaped the usual consequences of sea
sickness, not only myself, but out of 1,000 pass~
engers perhaps about half a dozen didn’t feel
well. My receptionat home from relatives
and friends was very great indeed, and so
pleased am I, that I intend to stay a few
weeks longer, then will proceed by rail to
Lombardy, and from there will make a visit
to some of the principal cities of Italy includ .
ing Milan, Turin, Naples, Pisa Florence and
Rome, then will be back here again, hence to
Paris, and finally to Havre where by a French
steamer will return to America on hand to re-
gister my name and castmy vote for the next

rival I found your valuable paper, for which

Resolutions of respect adopted by Victor
Grange, No. 159 April 16 1892.
Whereas, God in his wisdom saw fit to re-
move from our brother and si ster Worts, a
loving daughter, Annie C, aged 15 years 7
months 24 days. Therefore be it.
Resolved, that as a Grange, we tender our
heartfelt sympathy to the bereaved family
knowing that they alone can fully realize the
extent of their loss, and we should commend
them to the all wise Father, who will sustain
them in this their great affliction.
Resolved, that a copy of these resolutions be
sent to the bereaved family and to the Farm-
car's Friend, Democratic WArcumaN and Key -
stone Gazette for publication.
Vainly we held the hand of our loved one ;
Strove to call her to earth once more,
Heard she only the songs of angels,
Come afar from,the golden shore.
Boldly she entered Death's rising waters,
Floated away on the gloomy tide,
Beckoning over for us to follow,
Follow and meet on the other%ide.
Thou who breakest the bruised seed never,
Thou who turnest the night to day,
In this time of sorrow and anguish
Be our guide, our refuge, our stay.
Only to Thee we look for comfort,
Only to Thee all hope we bring,
Lead us, O lead us up to our darling
To thy promise ever we cling

Ellen Williams,
Ormsby was a bright and interesting little
boy. But his life was short, he came into this
world of trouble, and remained just long
enough to win the affections of all who knew
him, and then in the morning of life, in the
spring time of the year, he passed to the
better world, leaving in many hearts an aching
void that even the pitying touch of time can
not fill. .
How his parenis, and his brothers and sisters
will treasure up his childish speech, how care-
fully they will gather np!and lay away his toys
and everything that belonged to him, and
keap them sacred to the memory of the little
hands that used them.
“When neath the daisies cold and white
Those little hands shall folded be.”
He has passed “beyond the smiling and the

hearts sad, he is better off, as he has escaped

they shall be mine, saith the Lord of hosts, in

After the] remains [had been deposited in

of the deceased, sang the hymn, “God be with

In Memory of Reuben Richards.
Reuben W. Richards, of Julian, Pa., breath-
ed his last on Monday evening April 11that 8
o'clock. He was aged 62 years and 3 months.
He suffered many weeks, but bore his suffer-
ing with patience and when death came to
claim him he was prepared for the great
change and is now at rest in the bright world
above, where the inhabitants are never sick
and never grow old. He leaves a sorrowing
wife and six children to mourn his loss. One
daughter, Zillie, having preceded him to the
glory world several years ago. His six child-
ren that are living are Josephine, wife of Mills
Alexander, of Julian ; Nettie, wife of Rober
L. Rodney, of Port Matilda ; Julia, wife of W.
B. Parsons, of Unionville ; Roland R. Richards
who is married and lives at Silver Dale ; and
Morgan the youngest, still at home, who is a
telegraph operator at Port Matilda.
Reuben Richards was born and always lived
in Huston township, he was the son of George
Richards, one of its first settlers. He then
lived on the land owned by John Campbell and
on which Julian is situated. Eightbrothersand
