Trying to Trade for Hamilton.
Word comes to us, from a source that
we have every reason to believe relia-
ble, to the effect that the Republicans
of the county, hopeless of accomplish-
ing anything by a straight party fight,
“are making overtures to the Democra-
ey, to give them a vote for their entire
county ticket in return for a vote for
one of their candidates for Legislature.
This proposition has been made to
Democrats in a number of instances,
and always in the interest of Mr. JouN
HamiLtoN, who, the Republican mana-
gers have set their heads together to
elect if it is in the power of political
trading to do so,
The truth is that from present indi-
cations there is no telling if the next
House of Representatives will be Re.
publican or not, The disorganization
of that party through the labor troub-
les in the western part of the State; the
“divisions that have brought to the front
independent tickets in the northern tier
of counties ; the anti-QUAY sentiment
‘that exists in every county in the State,
and other causes, combined with these,
leads many to believe that the power
_of the Republican bosses will be brok_
en, and unless members of the next
house can be secured from heretofore
Democratic counties that Quay cannot
‘be elected to the: United States Senate,
nor can the Republican party count on
controlling that body.
-It will be remembered thatthe Re-
publican county convention, that nom-
inated Hamiuron and DALE, pasted res-
olutions commendatwory of Quay and
virtually instructed fhem, it elected, to
vote for him. If Centre county. could
be got to give a vote for QuaY’s re-elec-
tion it would be a big boost to the aspi-
rations of Gen. Hastings, who wants to
be the Repnblican candidate for gov-
ernor, and consequently the leaders
“have sent out word that every effort
must be made to secure HaMILTON’S
“success, even if other candidate on that
ticket must be traded off to occomplish
The reason thiey have picked on
Hawmivtox as the candidate to make
their efforts for, is from the fact that
gome half a dozen Democrats, scat-
tered over different parts of the coun-
ty, who are opposed to any fence laws,
have talked of supporting him because
he represents their views on this ques
tion. They don’t believe in fencing—
neither does HamiLToN. They don’t
believe a man who is too poor to own
real-estate should have a cow—neither
does HamirroN. They would like to
have a representative who would vote
against repealicg the law that makes
every poor man and tenant farmer
whose cattle are turned to the woods,
trespassers, and HamiLon would vote
that way, and because a half a dozen or
go of this class of Democrats have
talked of voting for him, as a represen-
tative of their views on this subject, the
Republican leaders imagine that he is
strong aud that by trading off the oth-
er candidates on their ticket, that he
can be elected and thus secure a votes
from Democratic centre for Quay, as
well as an opponent of a just fence law.
That this scheme will work we do
not have the least fear. Democrats are
not to be fooled into voting for Quay, nor
are the poor men and farmers of the
county idiots enough to vote for one
who would vote against their interests,
at Harrisburg, as Hamirrox would do.
The fact however, that the few Dem-
ocrats in the county who are opposed
to fence laws, propose voting for Ham-
ILTON, because he represents their views
on this subject, should open the eyes of
every farmer and poor man in the coun-
ty, no matter what his political belief
may be, to the necessity of voting
against him for the very reason these
other people give for voting for him,
A most strenuous effort is being
made on the part of the Republicans
to defeat the Democratic nominee for
Associate Judge, Mr. C. A. Faurk-
NER. They have started and are cir-
culating all manner of stories about
him, and are attempting to leave the
impression that if elected he will favor
a grog-shop at every cross-roads and a
saloon at every street corner. This is
done for a purpose—to defeat him and
keep the licensing power in the hands
of a Republican Judge to be used for
the benefit of the Republican party.
Mr. FavLkner would not vote for a
single license more than would Mr.
Say. T, Gray, but the difference in the
two would be, that the former would
act as he believed the law demanded
and the best interests af the communi-
ty required, while the latter would
make up his mind to act as Judge
Furst indicated and the Republican
ring here in town requested. Mr.
FAULKNER is a sober, upright, intelli-
gent, gentleman, and when elected will
act, under the law, for the best interests
of the public, morally, as well as other-
CR TEI HR,
AL. Dale before he was old
enough to try to shirk work, took the
cows to pasture and did odd chores on
his father’s farm. As soon as he was
grown enough he was started to school,
and since that time he has never done
a day’s work as a farm hand, and yet
he is continually blathering about be-
ing a farmer, and is asking votes be-
cause he was raised on a farm. He is
the kind of a farmer that every county
seat in the State is filled with—one of
the kind who was too lazy to work and
located near the Court House to try to
skin the real farmer when he got into
trouble. There is no farmer or work-
ingman in the county who owes AL.
Dare anything, nor is there a single
interest in which they are concerned
that if elected, be would care a bob-ee
for. A fellow who is afraid to say
where he stands on the fence law ques-
tion is nct the man to represent this
county in the next legislature.
——During the last session of the
legislature there was no more careful or
consciencious members of that body
than Jyo. T. McCormick. What
was right he supported; what was
wrong he opposed. What he believed
would be beneficial to his constituents
he favored ; what he thought would in
jure them he worked against. At all
times his first thought was for the inter-
ests of his people, and under all circum-
stances he labored to do the best he
could for his own county. He isa can-
didate again, and every voter in the
county who desires to see the interests
of the whole people cared for—the poor
as well as the rich—-will cast his vote
for Joun T. McCorMICK.
Joux HaMiutoN’s inhumanity
to man is being freely commented on.
He even wants to pull. the fence out
from under the undecided voter. But
those of you who are on the fence
just stay there until you decide to
place your Xs at the right of each
Democratic group column, then you
will not only have voted yourself proe-
perity and sound government, but you
will ‘also have voted a fence for the
good old Democratic rooster tofly up
on and sound their clarion notes of
victory on the morning of Novem-
Under the Wrong Caption.
In its efforts to find enough political
buncombe to stem its rotten party or-
ganization over the tide of disaffection,
which threatens its destruction, the
Republican press of the land is ransack-
ing every nook and cranny in which
it might possibly find some food on
which to turther fool the people. Even
the pages of history are vigorously
thumbed in the blind zeal of the party
organs, and it is from this latter re-
search that they are unwittingly pab-
lishing some of the most damaging ar-
guments to their cauee. 3
People would be fools indeed to think
that the same necessities, which were
required to run the governmeat when
Cray, Wesster, and HamintoN
were at the helm J guiding its
course, are requisite now. That theex-
igencies of 1800, of 1820 and even of
1860 were the exigencies which con-
front us to-day, yet the Republican
press is continuallv quoting the sayings
of such old fellows, who no doubt were
wise in their day and in the needs jof a
then infant government, but who knew
no'more of the conditions which would
exist in 1892 than a Papago Indian
does of a Dutch spelling book.
When ALexanpEr HAMILTON began
to figure in American politics the Uni-
ted States did not have a farthing in
the national treasury. The govern-
ment was bankrupt and without credit,
but by a careful imposition of duties,
for the protection of the few industries
which then flourished, and the institu-
tion of a sound banking system it was
gotten on its feet. HAMILTON'S name,
in the opinion of many, will go down
from generation to generation as one of
our greatest patriots, yet the wisdom
which elicited from WEBSTER the eco
nium: “He struck the rock of
national resources and abundantstreams
of currency flowed forth, he touched
the dead corpse of public credit and it
sprang upon its feet,” would wreck the
government of to-day in far less time
than it took to make it when Hamir-
TON was at its head.
What CLAY, what WEBSTER, and what
HamiutoN had to say in their day has
no bearing whatever on the conditions
which exist to-day nor can they be used
in any way to subvert the truths of
Let the Republican press busy itself
hunting up all the musty old doctrines
of the past, for the people will not be

are the issues of to-day and not the re-
quirements of a government of fifty

F. Smita, who is upon the Demo
cratic ticket, is a good German scholar
and speaks the language readily. This
fact alone should secure him the vote

he was talking about, but after the elec-

The Outlook in New York.
A Rise in the Democratic Tide Reported to be
New York. Oct. 17--The Herald,
which has certainly not been a sup-
porter of Cleveland in this campaign,
has a corps of correspondents travers.
ing the State to ascertain the political
situation, instructed to give the facts as
they find them after careful investiga:
tion, no matter what their party bear-
ing or significance may be. The gen-
eral tenor of the reports so far shows a
lack of enthusiasm on both sides, but
far more marked on the Republican
than on the Democratic side. Indeed,
there seems to be a Republican apathy |°
or indifference which indicates serious
Republican losses unless a change
takes place before election day. In
three banner Republican counties, in
the Genesee Valley, which gave Har-
rison 4559 plurality in 1888, ‘“the
most enthusiastic Republican does not
think that this year it will be over
3850.” Cattarangus and Chautauqua
Counties gave pluralities of 2413 and
5930 respectively. “This year the
Republicaas claim only 2200 and 5800
respectively, while the Democrats con-
cede but 2000 and 5400.”
Tn Orleans County a shrinkage of
163 is expected by the Republicans,
and about double that number by the
Democrats. A similar tale comes
from Monroe County. ‘In Rochester,
where the German vote is heavy, the
tide isrunning toward Clevland.’ Otsego
County gave Harrison 967 plurality.
“If it goes so by 600 this time, the re-
sult will surprise thinking men of both
parties.” The Herald concludes its
review by saying that “in the quarters
go far heard from the Republican tide
seems to be falling and the Democratic
LOSSES TO REPUBLICANS.
ALBANY, N. Y,, Oct. 17.— The
Argus to-day printed an estimate by
counties of the vote to be cast in this
State for the national ticket next
month, Forty counties are covered,
estimates being given in of some them
by both Democrats and Republicans.
From these figures it appears that the
Republicans will lose about 16,000
votes, or over 1500 more than Har-
rison’s plurality in 1888.
The Argus says: “It is notable
that few Republicans look for Re-
publican gain in their respective lo-
calities, and some concede Republican
losses. Some Republican responses
conceding considerable losses have
been sent out of courtesy, with the re-
quest that they be not published.”

Cutting Down Wages on the Eve of a Campaign.
LoweLL, Mass, Oct., 16.—The Re-
publican managers are interesting
themselves in the effort of the cotton
spinners of this city to have their wa-
ges raised. The spinners were in se-
cret session till midnight last night and
postponed action for several days. They
claim that although they made extra
money by faster machinery in some of
the mills the system of fines really cuts
down their pay, which is wretchedly
small, notwithstanding the claims of
Republican orators that wages have
been raised by the McKinley bill.
The National Union has given: the
local union leave to strike, and it 1s be-
lieved that there will be a tie-up before
the end of the next week. Such a
strike may extend to all the big mills,
of Lawrence, Fall River and Manches-
ter. It would prove disastrous to Repub-
‘licans in the coming election, justas a
strike in one of the mills two years ago
defeated Congressman Greenhaige, &
Republican, in a district that had 3500
Republican majority. /
A delegation from the Republican
State Committee visited the mill agents
yesterday to urge them to make conces-
sions, and the situation was discussed

BirmiNngHAM, Ala., Oct. 17—The
Executive Committee of the straight-out
wing of the Republican party met here
to-day and held a conference with Mr.

stormy at times and Chairman Stevens
rejected all propositions looking to a
union of the factions.
Two of the three whites on the com-

The Crowd Went Wild.
Enthusiastic Demonstration in Honor of Mr,
Stevenson in Birmingham, Ala.
BIRMINGHAM, Ala., Oct. 18.—Gener-
al Stevenson’s visit to Birmingham was
marked by perfect order and great en-
thusiasm. Several thousand people
came from other parts of the country and
state, and the workingmen were not-
ably numerous in the crowd that filled
the grand stand at the fair grounds.
General Stevenson’s speech was largely
devoted to the tariff and was addressed
chiefly to the workingmen.
‘When he denounced the force bill as
a scheme to turn the elections over to
officials not one of whom would be elect-
ed by the people, he provoked the great-
est demonstration of applause.
He contrasted the economy and the
surplus ot Cleveland’s administration
with the expenditures and empty treas-
ury of the present one, and in his tribute
to Cleveland read Chauncey Depew’s
tribute to the ex-president. At this the
crowd went wild and the band played

the committees appointed to solicit aid
for the men at Homestead submitted
After denouncing the Homestead
management for its attitude and ex-
pressing sympathy with the men, the
committee recommended that October
29 be known as “Homestead relief
day’ and that all working people do-
nate one day’s pay, or according to their
means toward the relief fund. The re-
port was adopted.
A Leper in Philadelphia.
PHILADELPHIA, October 18,—It was
made public to-day at the office of the
board of health that another leper had
been discovered in the city and that the
victim of the dread eastern plague was a
woman. The health officers refuse to
disclose the woman’s name, but they
say that the disease is not of the conta-
geous character. It was deemed advis-
able. however, to remove the woman to
the municipal hospital and she was tak-
en to that institution yesterday.
The unfortunate woman will have for
her companions a chinamen and a Japa-
nese who have been at the hospital for
some time awaiting death from the same

acknowledged fact that the late Father
Mollinger confided the secret of his
prescriptions which produced such won-

that is A. F. Sawhill, 187 Federal street
Allegheny, Pa., and that all the origi-
nal prescriptions, written by him are in
Mr. Sawhill’s possession. The fact ¢an-

are now using his name in order to de-

Previous to the last Presidential El-
! ection the Republican party made three
- distinct promises to as many different
| classes of peaple.
First :—To the Protected Manutac-
turers they said ‘‘Vote for Harrison and
give us your “fat” to elect him and if
we elect him you shall come to Wash-
ington and fix whatever Tariff rates you
please to tax the people for your bene-
SECOND ;—To the soldiers they said
“These Democrats have stored up a Bil-
lion Dollars of surplus in the Treasury.
Vote for Harrison and if we elect him
you shall have such a portion of that
money as shall give you all increased
Tuirp: To the laboring men they:
said “Vote for Harrison, and if we
elect him you shall all have continued
work at increased wages.”
Harrison was elected. The votes and
the money of the Manufacturers, the
votes of the soldiersand the votes of
“protected” working men elected him.
Then the Manufacturers made up the
schedules of the McKinley Bill and put
the heaviest burdens of taxation the
world has ever seen on the people. The
soldiers got over ninety-two millions of
dollars with more and more to come.
And the protected laborers got their
wages reduced and were shot down by
Pinkerton detectives. !

A STRIKE IN THE = PHILIPSBURG
ScrooLs.— Yesterday's Altoona Tribune
had the following account of a rumpus
which was stirred up in the public
schools in Philipsburg on Wednesday :
“This place had several decided sensa-
tions yesterday morning and afternoon
which terminated in the lodging of infor-
mation before Esquire Laporte by
James Cale, charging Professor J. G.
Anderson, superintendent of the Phil-
ipsburg public schools, with assault and
battery on his daughter, Mary Cale ag_
ed 14 years, a pupil in the school, the as.
sault and battery consisting, as alleged
by the girl, of whipping her, dragging
her along the floor and up and downa
flight of stairs, until ste dropped in a
dead faint, and permitting ber to re-
main in that condition on the floor.
Principal McLaury secured a rig from
the livery, and in company with a school
companion, sent the child home, and, as
alleged by the parents, in an uncon-
During the assault the cries and
screams of the child were heard through
out the building, ending in alarming
and frightening the children to such an
extent that many of the High school
girls arrived home in a greatly excited
and terrified condition, several of them
between their sobs, declaring that they
would not retrun to school, Shortly be-
tore 1 o’clock at least twenty of the High
school girls met at the school and decid-
ed that they would not return, their fear
of punishment seeming to get the
better of their judgement, Tn a
‘body they marched down to William
E. Irvin's office, who is one of
the leading members of the school
board, and presented their grievances
and made known their fears to him.
Mr. Irvin advised the young ladies to
return, assuring them of the protection
of the board and a thorough investiga-
tion of any charges they or others might
bring against any of the teachers.
The girls, while admitting the wis-
dom of Mr. Irwin’s advice, said they
would return if they could do so with-
out taking an excuse for tardiness, be
cause the excuses would have to be pre-
sented to the principal, and under all
the circumstances of the morning, as
well as their parent’s absence from the
building, they declined to see Prof. An-
derson. Prof. Anderson’s side of the
case has not yet been heard. Mary
Cole's story, if it is corroborated by the
evidence which is said will be presented
in court, will place Prof: Anderson in a
very unenviable position, but in this
case, as in so many cases of teacher vs.
pupil, the former may be able to show
