The Bardsley Pardon Promise.
The Philadelphia Press calls it “idiot-
ic-clap-trap” in the WaTcHMAN to as-
sert that “if the next Governor of
Pennsylvania be a Republican he will
pardon JouN BarpsLEY,” for the rea-
son, a8 the Press puts it, that “the
Governor of Pennsylvania has no
power to pardon any one.”
This is possibly as easy a way, as
the Press can conceive of, to try to
dispose of the fact that the pledges of
the leaders of its party were given
JouN BarpsLey that his pardon
would be secured as soon as a Republi-
can Governor was elected, in return for
his silence, at the time of his trial as
to who were the beneficiaries of the
robberies inflicted upon Philadelphia
and the State during his administra-
tion of the office of city Treasurer.
But it won’t succeed.
That these pledges were given the
Press does not dispute, that they will be
made good it does not deny. It only
seeks to discredit the statement by as-
serting that the “Governor has no
power to pardon any one.” That the
Governor of himself has not the power
to grant pardons the WarcEMAN well
knows, but it also knows that it is
through him all pardons are issued and
that the method of constructing the par:
don board, is such that in case of Repub-
lican success, any pledge that he has
made can be as readily carried out
through its recommendation and his
action, as though he was exclusive ar-
biter in the matter himself,
To the people of the State, and as a
matter of justice, it matters nothing
whether a pardon is granted through
a Governor himself, or by the joint ac-
tion of the chief executive and a board,
part of which he appoints and part of
which is elected at the same time, on
the same ticket, and pledged just as he
is. It is the fact that the ends of
justice are to be thwarted ; that the ras-
cals who stood back of BarpsLEy and
assisted him in robbing the city and
State are to succeed in the payment of
their promised bribe for his silence ;
that the Republican party, that benefi!-
ted by the robbery, is to escape the ex-
posure that otherwise would have been
made, and that the power and author-
ity of the commonwealth are to be
used for these base ends, is what will
create public interest and arouse public
The Press cry of “clap trap,” may
satisfy itself. It will not convince the
people that the promise of a pardon
for BARDSLEY, as a reward for the si-
lence that saved Quay and Wana-
MAKER, and the big Philadelphia con-
tribution to the Republican presidential
campaign fund, from exposure was not
made ; nor does it assure them that
this promise will not be fulfilled in
case of the election of a Republican
Governor next fall.
——The Democratic voters of the
county should remember that to-mor
row, Saturday, afternoon is the time
fixed for them to expose their preference
as to the candidate they prefer voting
for at the fall election. The ticket that
will be placed in nomination on Tues
day next, will be virtually named at
the primaries to-morrow. At these
each voter has the right to express his
preference, and he who fails to go out
and vote will have no right to com-
plain if some candidate other than the
one he desires to see nominated should
succeed. Let there be a full turn out to
the primaries; a general acquiescence
in the will of the majority, and then a
Democratic victory that will put all
past victories far in the shade.
When the British Parliament
is enlivened by the practices of Donny-
brook Fair, the English members are
not behind their Irish brethren in hit
ting any head that may appear in
sight. This was shown in the row
that recently came off in the House of
Commons, when English, Tories ‘and
Liberals struck out from the shoulder
with equal vigor and vivacity. It
used to be a favorite slur of the Lon-
don papers to speak of the rowdy pro-
ceedings in the American Congress,
their prejudice always exaggerating the
altercations that sometimes occur in
the latter assemblage, but it never hap-
pened that American congressmen
rolled over the floor in a rough and
tumble fight as was done by honor-
able (?) members of Parliament, in a re-
cent squabbleover the Home Rule bill.
That was a scene exhibiting exclusively
the high breeding of British leg

continued. The chaps who are doing
the kicking, about a revision of the
while they sought safety in the hospi:
tals or at home. These, along with
Republican politicians and pension
agents, are the opponents of a peasion
system that will discriminate between
the deserving soldier and the bounty
jumper, the skulker and the pension
shark, No real>old soldier has, or need
have, any fear of being left in the
struggle for an honest and honorable

he deserves, and the full measure of
his deserts, that the effort is being
made to revise the list of pensioners.
——-Contrary to the reasonable be-
lief that the invention of labor saving
machinery would make labor more
plentiful, than it was when every farmer
needed at least a dozen men to garner
his crops, the experience of the season
now drawing to a close has shown that
farm help was never known to have
been so scarce. Notwithstanding the
fact that there are a large percentage
of self-binding harvesters in this county
farmers have been greatly handicapped
for want of helpers.

who started the calamity howl for the

effort to create a business panic, but
succeeded admirably in bringing about
a banker's panic, and just now the re-
sults of their labor, like chickens, are
coming howe to roost.

Doom to Peary’s Trip.
The Falcon Nearly Swamped in a Severe Storm,
—Donkeys Perished From Exposure.~Dogs
Must be Found to Replace the Burros or the
Expedition Will Fail—Now Searching for the
Needed Animals— Lieutenant Peary Unable to
Find Dogs at the Settlements he Visited.
Harrrax, N. S. July 81.—Lieuten-
ant Peary’s expedition to the North
Pole is evidently doomed to serious de-
lay and perhaps utter failure, according
to word from St. Johns, N. F.
Notwithstanding that the Falcon is
commanded by Henry H. Bartlett, one
of the most experienced commanders on
the coast, the party bad a very severe
passage on the voyage from Newfound-
and to Labrador, the storms being so
furious and severe that the vessel was in
danger of going down. Their donkeys
perished from exposure, and as Lieuten-
ant Peary depended on them for much
of the laborious work, their loss is keen-
ly felt.
Lieutenant Peary was unable to buy
dogs at the settlements he visited and
was forced to go further in the endeavor
to obtain them. It is necessary for the
explorer to replace the donkeys with
dogs suitable for the work in view, oth-
erwise his movements in the frozen
North will be seriously handicapped.
The lieutenant hoped to be able to re-
place the lost animals, and was willing
to pay a big price for substitutes, as
failure to get them might mean the col-
lapse of the expedition.
Repair will be made to the Falcon
while cruising in search of dogs, ard if
success crowns his efforts. Peary says he
will at once set out for the desired goal.
Siam Accepts the Ultimatum.
A Big Indemnity Will Also Have to be Paid by
the Siamese—The Concession Made Removes
the Probability of War.
Bangkok, July 80.—The Siamese
governmen?, has accepted the full terms
of the French ultimatum. The sub-
stance of the ultimatum was as fol-
lows :
First. A recognition of the rights of
Annam and Cambodia on the left or
eastern bank of the Mekong river, as
far north as the twenty-third parallel of
Second. The evacuation within a
month of the forts held by the Siamese
on the east bank of the river,
Third. Full satisfaction for various
Siamese aggressions against French
ships and French sailors on the Menam
river. !
Fourth. The punishment of the cul-
prits and provision for the pecuniary in-
demnity of the victims.
ifth. An indemnity of 1,000,000
francs for various damages sustained by
French subjects.
Sixth. The immediate deposit of
8,000,000 fraacs to guarantee the pay-
ment of the fourth and fifth claims, or
the assignment ofthe taxes in certain
districts in lieu of the deposit of 8,000,-
000 francs.

Bering Sea Case Decision.
It Will Be Theoretically in Favor of America’s
Paris, July 81.—The decision in the
Bering sea case will be theoretically in
favor of America’s contention that pelag-
ic sealing should be restricted so as to
prevent the extinction of the fur seal
species. But the arbitrators will not
give Americans the full property rights
in the herd which are claimed. This
forecast of the result is given by the
New York World's correspondent, and
is substantially indorsed by those Ameri-
cans and Englishmen best qualified to
Such a decision would avoid the com-
plete turning down of either party to
the dispute, and in that respect would
be agreeable to both sides. If the arbi-
trators decide to restrict pelagic sealing,
the American counsel will feel that they
have won their fight for great princi-
ples cf humanity and morality.
The date for announcing the decision
is only to be guessed. The question of
damages is understood to be the one
which is chiefly prolonging the labors
of the arbitrators. Senator Morgan had
announced his departure for Aug. 5,
but has changed his date to Aug. 19,
and says he is not sure he can get away

have something on band. When it is'nt
flowers it is fruit. For several years he
has been favoring this office with sam-
ples of the peaches he raises in his yard,
on Reynolds avenue, and while we were
kind of expecting one of his visits this
year we had no idea he would be around
so early in the season. On Wednesday
morning he dropped in with sume of the
most luscious fruit it has been our plea-
sure to taste. ,

The Italian and Hungarian workmen have
all left Hecla, and moved to Nittany Hall to
resume their work on the railroad.
The farmers are appreciating the thought of
having soon stored away their summer crops,
but are grieved at the idea of sacrificing it for
the meagre sum of from sixty to seventy
cents a bushel.
Everybody seems to be elated over the fact
that Nittany Valley will goon step to the front
rank in the line of rail-road accommodation®
it will, no doubt, revive many a dormant and
sluggish enterprise, arouse the people from
their lethargy, and instill into their minds and
hearts energy and enthusiasm.

About 11 o'clock .p. m., Thursday night some
mischievous person, or persons presumably:
set fire to the immense pile of brushes below
the furnace school-house. Several saw the
blaze, and thinking it to be Clarence Cooke’s
mill, shouted fire which was quickly taken up
by others and led Bert Poulsen to blow his
famous mill whistle. This again startled the
town, which remembering the afternoon oc-
currence, thought that fire had started again,
and started to help fight the dreaded monster.
Luckily this was but a hoax, and Mr. Poulsen
is heartily thanked for his prompt action, but
if those who possibly setthe fire had been
known and seen, they might never have been
heard of again. Every one isready to respond
to an emergency call but when fooled about
two or three times, are ready to grab anything
that comes handy and use it with effect.
As the gravel train passed through this bor-
ough last Thursday, the engine threw sparks
from its stack, spitting fire over the fields
in the vicinity of Poulsen’s mill and Reber’s
house, setting them afire as well as portions
of the surrounding farms. Pretty soon Anse
Schenck and our genial ticket agent, Walter
L. Cooke, ran over to see what was going on.
Brother Schenck came back in a harry,
leaving Walt thereto fight the flames, while
he called out the fire department and, by
way of courtesy, the whole town, by the
vocal fire signal. Had not the thirty or
forty men and boys promptly responded
and watered the fire as well as beat it out with
brush, Mr, Reber's barn would have been des-
troyed and that portion of the borouzh been in
constant danger of catching; as it was about
as hard a fire as is generally known to |
have occurred. Many thought the Poulsen’s :
mill was on fire and hastened to the scene !
and offered help. That wasa mistake, but !
they all turned in and put the fire out,
Beyond burning the stubble, and parts of the
fence no damage was done.

Our school board have posters up giving

part of the district, to have it moved westward.
To this the eastern patrons will object, unless
a new district can be formed, which is not at
all probable, it being too close to Patton and

larger house is needed in the district.

To the Democrats of Centre County.
Boggs Township, July 31 1893.
I desire to say to my friends, in this Way,
that I was unable to call upon them personal-
ly and talk to them on the subject of County
Treasurer, for which office Iam asking the
nomination, because [ was too poor to make a
general canvas. I lost my home in Bellefonte
by going security for others and hence moved
to Boggs township, five years ago, and went to
gardening. At the time of the June flood, I
lost all I had on four acres of ground and the
soil with it to the depth of tree feet, and a
deposit of stone was left in place to almost the
same depth in many places ; a month later my
household goods were destroyed by fire turn-
ing me out of house and home without any-
thing, but a family of thirteen children to
support (twin babies about five months old
now) and the only source of income I have is
through my hands at day’s labor. I wish to
say further that over 22 years ago I. had one
term in the District Attorneys office to which
I was entitled to two terms according to party
rule ; but did not get it. I do not claim that
Iam ony better or have any superior . merit
over my competitors for the nomination, I
take them all to be honorable men. I only
say that if the Democrats of Centre county
can give me the nomination that I will surely
feel very grateful.
CALDREN—July 27th, at Lemout, Harry, son
of William and Agnes Caldren, aged 6 years,
7 months and 22 days.
Dear Harry, we are lonely
Since thou art gone to rest,
Our hearts are wrung with anguish
And sorrow fills our breast.
Our home we thought so happy
Is now a lonely place,
It is there we miss our Harry,
That dear sweet little face.
We did not ask for honor.
We did not ask for wealth,
We only asked that Harry
Might be restored to health.
But that wish was denied us,
And we are le ft to mourn ;
The little one we loved so well
Is to a new life born.
Oh ! our darling little boy.
'Tis hard to give thee up ;
'Tis by the Father's gracious will
That we drink the bitter cup.
