A Tribute From the Vanquished.
The New York Tribune, one of the
most radical partisan journals in the
land, a paper which has never stopped
atanything when the advancement of
Republican banners was at stake, has
proven beyond the peradventure of a
doubt that the rankling sores of politi.
cal wounds can be forgotten when our
people are one in a common sympathy.
In the issue of last Friday the Tribune
published the following under the cap-
tion “Mr. CLEVELAND at Fremont.”
_ “Peculiarly graceful and becoming
is the act of the President-elect in sub-
Jeeting himself to the inconveniences
and discomforts of travel in a most in-
clement season and making the long
journey required, that he might pay
the proper official tribute ot respect to
the memory of ex-President Hayes.
He would not have been criticised had
he consulted his own convenience and
comfort and contented himself with
communicating te the family of the
deceased ex-President the ordinary
forma! assurances of his sympathy,
without putting himself to the trouble
of making the journey to attend the
the funeral in person.
It is for the Tribune a very grateful
task to award praise to a political op-
ponent it such circumstances. Mr,
Cleveland is not our President in a
partisan sense but he is the President
elect of the United States, and what-
ever he does in an official or semi-offi-
cial capacity concerns all of us who
are citizens. For many reasons his
conduct in this matter deserves special
commendation. He has done with
modesty and dignity and at covsidera-
ble sacrifice of personal ease and com-
fort a very gracious and becoming act,
for which all American citizens who
have pride in their country, its history
and its rulers, and all men everywhere
who believein that common humanity
which at the edge of the grave forgets
all nnkiadness, will hold him in high
honor. It may be but a little thing,
but it is one of those little things that
20 a long way towards smoothing out
the differences that make so many
misunderstandings in the world.”
A more graeeful tribute to Mr.
CLevELAND’s nobility of purpose and
modesty can scarcely be imagined than
is contained in the article we quote
above. Coming as it does from a paper
which is owned by and breathes the
sentiments of one whom he has so re-
cently vanquished it is specially an
acknowledgement to be proud of.
We congratulate the Tribune on its
recognition of the traits which it finds
to admire in Mr. CLEVELAND.
The Auditors Are Responsible,
Section five of the Baker Ballot law
“Certificates of nominations and
nomination papers for candidates for
township and borough officers and
school directors in the same, shall be
filed with the auditors of the respec:
tive townships and boroughs at least
ten and seven days respectively before
the day of election.”
This being done the township audi
tors are responsible for the proper
printing and distribution of the ballots
for their respective Districts. They then
testify to the cost before the county
commissioners who pay the expenses.
Auditors should be careful to post
themselves immediately as to the
working of the new law, There can
be no excuse for mistakes, as there is
plenty of time to study it yet.

Frightened Away The Robbers,
A Citizen of Greenville Prevents a Bank From
Being Looted.
‘GREENVILLE, Tex., January 23.—
W. T. Ward, in passing the First Na-
tional Bank yesterday, discovered a
man in the doorway and the door open
behind him. He heard voices inside
and suspected robbery. He passed on
intending to give an alarm, when one
of the robbers called to him to stop, to
which he-paid vo attention. At anoth-
er command to stop Ward drew a six-
shooter from his pocket and turned on
the man who was following him.
As he turned the robber fired and
ran. A pal of robber number one fircd
at Ward, wounding him in the left
thigh, just below the groin. Ward
then fired on the robbers six times,
They all escaped. Ward's wounds are
painful but not fatal.
When thie bank was examined it was
found that the safe door was blown to
atoms and $10,000 in silver was stacked
at the east door of the building but
©150,000 in gold and currency in the
steel chest was not reached. The rob-
bers were frightened away and obtained
but $780. They left all their tools, elec-
tric batteries, ete., behind. Twenty-fve
shots were exchanged between Ward
and the robbers.

Death of Phillips Brooks.
The Renowned Bishop Passed Away Rather Un-
expectedly Yesterday Morning.
Boston, Jan. 23.—Bishop Phillips
Brooks died at 6 o'clock this morning,
of pneumonia. The death was entire
ly unexpected. He was ill Thursday,
but nothing serious showed itselt until
last evening. Dr. Beach, his physi
cian, discovered last evening diphtheret-
ic symptoms, and considered a consul
tation advisable, and called in Dr. R.
N. Fritz. At this time nothing serious
was anticipated.
Dr. Beach was with the Bishop the
entire night. About half past 6 the
patient was seized with a coughing
spasm, which lasted for a fev moments,
and his heart ceased to beat. Dr.
Beach said this morning that death
was caused by heart failure and not by
To last Thursday the bishop was in
the best of spirits. Tharsday morning
he contracted a stight cold, which,
however, caused no alarm. Every-
thing progressed well until Sunday,
when diphtheria symptoms necessita-
ted the calling of Dr. Beach. The lat-
ter even then found no cause for seri-
ous alarm and lelt, promising to call
later, in the night. During Sunday
evening he seemed to grow worse, and
as the evening wore on the nurse, Ka-
tie Hogan, who has beenin the bishop's
family over twenty-five years, noticed
that he was not so well as earlier in
the day. He appeared bright, howev-
er, for at 10.15 be looked atthe clock
and said: “Come, Katie, it is a quar-
ter past 10. I don’t think I shall need
you any more. Good night.”
The nurse replied that she hardly
thought she would go yet awhile, as he
might need her. Bishop Brooks insis-
ted upon it, and she retired to an ad-
joining room, where she could hear
every move he made. Sone noticed he
was restless, and, when Dr. Beach
came over at 11 o'clock, bishop's dis-
ease had taken a very serious turn, and
the physician became alarmed and
sent for Dr. Fritz for consultation.
Shortly before midnight, while the
doctors were both in attendance, the
patient’s mind began to wander, al-
though he was still conscious. Look-
ing up at the faithful servant, the bish-
op said : “Katie, you can go; I shall
not need you any more. Iam going
home.” These were the the last words
of the great divine, the man who com-
manded the love and admiration of the
known world. After that he lay
quietly, suffering to ro great ex-
tent, but was not entirely unconscious.
His tremendous vitality seemed to be
giving way to the influences of the
disease as the night's hours passed,
and the two doctors in attendance
could see him gradually weakening.
At 6 o'clock this morning he was
barely alive and stimulants had to be
administered to keep up his fast ebbing
strength. At 6.30 it was decided to ad-
minister a hypodermic injection of
brandy. They raised his arm to in-
gert the tube uader it but before the
contents could be injected the bishop
was dead.
The funeral arrangements have not
yet been decided upon.
Bishop Philips Brooks was born in
Boston, Dee. 13, 1835. His degree of
B. A., he received in Harvard universi-
ty in 1855, and subsequently that ot D.
D. He studied at the Episcopal theo-
logical seminary at Alexandria, Va.,
and in 1855 was ordained. The same
year he got his first charge, be-
coming rector of the Church of the
Advent in Philadelphia, where he re-
mained for three yeers. He was then
transferred to the Church of the Holy
From 1870 until last year he was
rector of Trinity church, Boston, a
charge that allowed of his talent as a
pulpit orator becoming world wide.
He was as well known and appreciated
in England as here, and such church:
men as Canon Farrar and the late Dean
Stanley were among his friends. He
had preached for the former in West:
minster Abbey, London, and both of
these English divines have occupied
his pulpit in Boston. Early last year
he become Bishop ot Massachusetts,
succeeding the late Benjamin Henry
Paddock, Previously, in 1886, he was
offered the assistant bishopric of Penn.
sylvania, but declined.
An active philanthropist, as well as
preacher, Bishop Brooks was also an
author, and several volumes, mostly
sermons, have come from his pen. His
first work was ‘Lecture on Preaching,”
published in 1877 ; then came the “Ser-
mons,” (1878 and 1881); “The Influ-
ence of Jesus ;’’ Bohlen Lectures, de
livered in Philadelphia in 1879, and
“Baptism and Confirmation, (1880).
Bishop Brooks was a giant in stature
as well as intellect. Head and should
ders above most of his contemporaries,
he bad a deep, musical voice, and his
words fell from him with such rapidity
of utterance as to be a perfect cataract
of eloquence.

Eight Miners Killed.
The Accident Occurred at the Fort Schritt Mine
Near Dux, Austria. Caused by an Explosion
of Gas—Besides Three Killed Scores Were
Badly Injured—DMost of the Victims Crushed
to Death Under Falling Timbers— Rescuers at
VIENNA, January 24.—Eighty min-
ers were Killed and scores were injured
in an explosion in the Fort Schritt mine
near Dux this morning. As the shifts
were changing a cage full of
miners had been lowered halt way
down the shaft when the ground trem.
bled, a loud rumbling report was heard
and the cable attached to the cage gave
such a lurch that the lowering machin-
ery broke. A rush of air and dust from
the pit’s mouth, the sounds of crashing
timbers and the cries of the men in the
cage gave warning to the men above of
the extent of the disaster.
Help was summoned the machinery
was repaired after delay of half an hour
and the cage was raised. Ten of the
occupants had been killed instantly by
the shock, ten had suffered fractures
from which they cannot recover; five
who had broken limbs and internal in-
juries will live,
They had been half suffocated by the
gas rising in the shaft and said that vo
man could live below. An hour later
the superintendent of the mine and five
miners from the night shift went down
in the cage. They were unable to go
more than a hundred yards from the
ehaft into the gallery, but they found
fourteen dead bodies. Of the fifty men
who were waiting for the cage ten had
been kiiled and forty had been partial
ly crushed by falling timbers or half
suffocated by the foul air. A short dis-
tance from the shaft the superinten-
dent found four bodies which had been
crushed beyond recognition by a falling
The bodies and the injured were tak-
en to the top, where the whole mining
settlement had gathered to watch the
work of rescue. The men who had
been brought up from the bottom said
that a few minutes alter the explosion
they heard cries and groans from the
mouth of the gallery about 300 yards
from the shaft. There was heavy tim-
ber work at this place and others be-
lieved that the men in this gallery had
been imprisoned by the falling beams.
They believe that some forty men had
been at work there shortly before the
cage went down ; they said] the cries
ceased. Another rescue party went
down at once and alter three of them
had been carried back to the shaft un-
conscious, they penetrated to the en-
trance of the gallery. The entrance
was completely blockaded by the
wrecked woodwork. The rescuing par-
ty could see several dead bodies on the
other side of the timbers, but were un-
able to get at them and returned to the
top empty handed. TItis believed that
all the men in the gallery were suffc-
cated or killed by the shock of the ex-
plosion. Miners who worked in the
extreme interior of the mine on the
night shift and had not started for the
shaft as soon ae their companions, are
also hzlieved to be dead.
Despite the apparent hopelessness ot
of the situation, a rescue party is still
in the mine and thousands have gath-
ered at the pit’s mouth.

The engine, the baggage car and cafe
car were set on fire and burned, The
occupants and passengers in the three
palace cars were badly shaken up, but
not seriously hurt. Yard engines pulled
the burning cars apart and kept the
fire from spreading.
About noon on Saturday another
tank exploded, setting the stock yard
enclosures on fire. A crowd of by-
standers rushed forward to save the
yards, when there was a second explo-
sion, which shook the earth for a half
mile around and scattered the burning
oil in all directions.
There was no escape for those with-

a wail of woe went up. Ina moment

_ Justice Lamar’s Successor.
WasHINGTON, January 24'—Specula-
tion is already rife over the successor of
Justice Lamar on the supreme bench,
The particular person who will be chos-
en is not <onsidered so much as the
question whether or not President Har-
rison will make a nomination to fill the
vacancy or leave the matter open for
President Cleveland’s action. It is cer-
tainly in view of the attitude of certain
democratic senators toward the nomina-
tion of Mr. McComas to be judge of the.
court of the District of Columbia, and
that a nomination by President Harri-
son will be antagonied to the end of
the session and defeated if possible. In
view of that fact it is probable that the
president will not care to provoke a bit-
ter controversy and will take-no scticn,
but it can be said that he has come to
no determination upon the matter and
will not consider it for several days at
least. Should he decide to make a
nomination, the probabilities are that a
member of the United States judiciary
within Justice Lamar’s old circuit will
be honored by the appuintment. The
circuit embraces the states of Alabama,
Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi
and Texas.

Thinks War is Imminent,
BERLIN, Japuary 28.—During the

who was ambassador to Italy, said the
utterances of Chancellor Von Caprivi
bis own observations of the relations of
the great powers and some signs which
should be intelligible to everybody sc-
quainted with foreign politics had con-
vinced him that war was more im-
minent to-day than at any previous
time in the last twenty years. Many
things point to the probability that it
could not be deferred much after 1894.

Thursday of last week, the citizens of
Walker township, paid tke last tribute
of respect to the remains of one of
their oldest and most respected members
in the christian burial of Mr Samuel
Walkey. At the time of death, Mr
Walkey had reached the age of 82 years
one month and six days. He was born
in Union county and at an early age
moved to Brush Valley this county.
After a few years residence there he
came to Walker township, where he
resided the remainder of his life. He
was an honest, unassuming man, always
ready todo a kind act for anyone in
need, and never failing in any of the
duties demanded ‘of a citizen. In his
death, the township, the immediate
community in which he resided, and the
Democratic party, of which he was an
earnest member during all his days, will
loose one whose faithful services and
good judgement could always be rehed
upon. He has five sons and one daugh-
ter, Mr. Henry Walkey of this place
being the eldest of the family,
Ex-Governor Beaver has been in the.
city for several days, and, in company
with Ex-Lieutenant Governor Davies, of
Bradford county, yesterday greeted
many acquaintances on Chestnut street.
Governor Beaver is devoting his time to
the development of his large land acd
coal interests in the central part of
the State, and Davies is giving
almost his entire time to his large law
practice in Towanda.
Both thesa gentlemen still retain a
lively interest in public affairs, and
talked freely of the political outlook,
‘When interrugated on the question of
Governor Pattison’s successor Governor
Davies said : “The Republicans of the
northern tier, in my judgment, will be’
for General Hastings. He is very popu-
lar with us, and there is a growing sen-
timent for him.”
“Yes,” said General Beaver, “I am
for Hastings. « He was my personal
friend and adviser in both of my cam-
paigns for Governor. He was my
Adjutant General. I have been inti-
mately associated with bim in business.
I know him like a book. He is the son
of Scotch-Irish emigrants, and was born
in Clinton county, just below us. He
had nothing but a common school edu-
cation, but he made his own way and
has done it well. He has worthily fill-
ed every position to which he has been
called. He is the right kind of timber,
and his record, public and private, is as
clean as a whistle.”’—Saturday’s Phila.
