TION. —Promptly at 12.85 County Chair-
man, J. C. Meyer, called the annual con-
vention of the Democracy of Centre
county to order, and after a few explan-
atory remarks about the presence of dele-
gates, acting Secretary, William G.
Runkle, called the roll of delegates by
When chairman pro tem Meyer de-
clared the convention ready for the elec-
tion of a permanent chairman, W. C.
Heinle HEsq., South ward Bellefonte,
nominated Dr. F. K. White, of Philigs-
burg 1st ward, while Walter Garrity,
North ward Bellefonte, nominated W.
Miles Walker, of the North ward of
Bellefonte, for the office. The roll of
delegates elected White on the first bal-
lot, the vote standing

Upon motion of Mr. Heinle the final
organization of the convention was com-
pleted as follows: reading clerk, I. J.
Dreese, of College Twp. ; roll clerks,
Mortimer O’Donohue, of Spring,
and J. P. Sebring, of Halfmoon ; secre-
taries, R. A. Bumiller, Millheim; W.
Fred. Kurtz, Centre Hall; Charles 1.
Kurtz, Bellefonte, and Geo. R. Meek:
Bellefonte. The committee on resolu-
tions was appointed by the Chairman as
follows: W. C. Heinle, Bellefonte ; S.
J. Herring, Gregg; J. C. Smith; Mill-
heim ; Oscar Holt, Burnside; and W.
W. Spangler, Potter. The order of
business was then adopted and carried
out as per motion.
In order Cyrus Brungart, of Miles ;
Geo. B. Crawford, of Gregg; John P.
Condo, of Gregg ; Geo. Parker, of Phil-
ipsburg; H. F. McGirk, of College ; and
John Corrigan, of College, were placed
in nomination by their constituency.
At this juncture and before the ballot-
ing began the committee on resolutions
reported that it had completed its work,
but asked to have its report held until
after the nominations. Balloting be-
gan as follows :
Corrigan 4 4
8 92 90
Under the party rales the candidate
having the lowest number of votes on
the third ballot was dropped, and the
fourth ballot finds Mr. Corrigan’s dele-
gates divided between MecGirk, Parker
and Brungart, but as the Philipsburg
leader did not catch quite enough he fell

Crawford. 25
Condo... «13
On the fifth ballot the thirteen dele-
gates let loose on the fourth attached
themselves to Brungart and Condo thus
leaving Mr. McGirk out of the contest.
The sixth ballot was perhaps the most
interesting of the lot as the contest be-
tween Condo and Crawlord, the two
Gregg township aspirants, waged very
warm. The McGirk delegates cut loose
decided the question in favor of the
commercial man and the present deputy
sheriff was laid off to wait further and
more propitious political weather.
The seventh and last failed to decide
the contest in favor of either candidate,
the ballot resulting in a failure of the
tellers to bring the result out alike. An
eighth ballot was taken resulting as fol-

The presentation of names for the of-
fice of County Treasurer having been
declared in order the following were
presented: Wm. T. Speer, of Belle-
fonte; J. H. Beck, of Walker; A. J.
Griest, of Unionville ; John Q. Miles, of
Huston; John F. Potter, of Boggs;
Howard A. Moore, of Howard ; J. T.
Lucas, of Snow Shoe. The first three
ballots went as follows :
1st. 2nd. 3rd.
8 92 9
The third ballot resulted in a tie vote
between Johnston and Potter and as un-
der the rules neither one could be
dropped, both candidates withdrew
promptly and let their delegates loose
for the fourth ballot, which resulted as
follows :
Speer. sessssnites 13
Br ri ere 21
The question arose at this juncture as
to what constituted second instructions,
whereupon chairman White ruled that
for second instructions a candidate must
have a majority of the votes cast at the
primaries to that effect.
The fifth ballot bowled Mr. Griest out
of the race and resulted as follows :

Mr. Speer was declared out of the race
on the next ballot, the figures being:

Things took a decided change in the
seventh and when the Speer delegates
got themselves adjusted, it was disclosed
that as a dark horse Mr. Moore was a
winner, for he forced the Walker town-
ship aspirant out of the races,

The eighth and last ballot ended the
monotonous roll calling for the treasur-
er nomination, by giving Mr. Miles,
the Huston township chieftain, the plum.
It was made unanimous on motion.

Nominations for Register came in
promptly when the chairman called, but
they stopped after the names of C. A.
‘Weaver, of Harris; A. G. Archey, of
Ferguson ; W. J. Carlin, of Millheim ;
and G. W. Rumberger, of Philipsburg
had been presented. Before the ballot-
ing began, however, Mr. Archey’s name
was withdrawn leaving but three men
in the field. The first ballots resulted
as follows.
92 9 02
On the fourth Squire Carlin having
cut his delegates loose there was a gen-
eral distribution in which Mr. Rumber-
ger came out on top with a small mar-
As there was no person who cared to
contest Mr. Morrison’s right to a re-
nomination for the office of County Re-
corder, the convention gave him the
honor by acclamation. The fever of
giving acclamatory nominations seized
the convention and T. Frank Adams,
of Bellefonte, and Geo. L. Goodhart, of
Potter, were nominated to succeed them-
selves as Commissioners of the county.
The contagion spread and carried H. W.
Bickle, of the North ward of Bellefonte
and W. W. Royer, of the Southern pre-
cinct of Potter, through as candidates
for auditors. Ellis L., Orvis was the
unanimous choice of the convention for
County Chairman in 1894.
Mr. Heinle having secured the floor
he read the report of the committee on
resolutions which was adopted as fol-
lows : ”
Tue Dewocracy oF CENTRE County IN CONVEN-
1st. That we endorse the administration of
President Grover Cleveland as being a wise
honest, able and upright administration of the
government. We commend his efforts to
bring the government to a sound financial’
basis, in order to restore !confidence to busi-
ness and prosperity to our industries:
2nd. We demand the absolute and uncondi,
tional repeal of what is known as the Sherman
Silver purchase law, a speedy and complete
revision of the tariff, and that strict economy
shall be observed in all public expenditures.
3rd. We insist that the congress now called
in extraordinary session shall with all speed,
laying aside every feeling ot partisanship,
looking only to the prosperity and glory of our
_eountry, promptly and patriotically discharge
the duties for which is was assembled at the
call of the President.
‘4th. We endorse and re-affirm the declaration
of principles contained in the Democratic plat-
form adopted by the Democratic national con-
vention at Chicago, in 1892, and upon which
the people declared for Cleveland, Stevenson
and reform. : .
5th. We commend the patriotic and eco-
nomical administration of Governor Robert E-
Pattison to the confidence and support of the
people of Pennsylvania.
6th. We commend the wise, careful and
faithful administration of the affairs of tha
county by the present board of County Commis-
sioners. Coming into office, 8s they did, when
the treasury had been depleted, and existing
indebtedness of $5,267.63, the taxes due to the
several school, poor and road districts from un-
seated lands misappropriated and commissions
thereon unlawfully taken, they paid the in-
debtedness, returned to the State and the sev-
eral districts the funds justly and properly be-
longing to them, and so managed the county
finances as to have at the last'annual settle.
ment a balance of $6,880.90 on hand over and
above all liabilities. We therefore with confi
dence commend them to their fellow citizens
for their re-election. :
7th. We commend the ticket this day nomi-
nated as worthy the support of the citizens of
Centre county irrespective of party The can:
didates are known to be men of the highest
integrity and honesty and well qualified for the
positions to which they have been nominated.
The following amendment to the rules regu-
lating the Democratic party of Centre county
was offered.
That rule No. 2 of the rules governing the
election of delegates and the County Conven-
tion be amended to read as follows to wit:
“The election for delegates to represent the
different districts in the Aunual Democratic
County Convention shall be held at the usual
place of holding the general election for each
district, on the Saturday, preceding the sec-
ond Tuesday of June in each and every year
beginning at three o'clock, p. m., on said day
and continuing until seven o’clock, p. m. The
delegates so elected shall meet in County Con-
vention in the Court House at, Bellefonte, on
Tuesday following at 12 o'clock m.
The next business taken up was the.
nomination of a candidate for coroner.
Dr. H. K. Hoy, of Bellefonte, being the
only one presented bis nomination was
made unanimous. Thre convention then
adjourned sine die, without having selec-
ted delegates to the State Convention.

—At an early hour, on Sunday morn-
ing barber R. A. Beck came down from
his home to his place of business in the
basement of the First National bank
building to see if everything was in good
condition, just as he has been accustom-
ed to do for a number of years. His at-
tention was attracted by the smell of
smoke and upon making an investiga-
tion he found that it was coming from
the large four story stone. building
fronting on Allegheny street and just
in the rear of the Exchange. He gave
an alarm and the fire department was
on the scene ina very short tinte.
When it arrived the firemen went to
work to locate the fire and as the Irvin
hardware store was puffing out smoke
likea monster engine it was there that
the flames were supposed to be. No fire
could be found in the large store room,
until some one reached the rear of it and
discovered them in the cellar. Three
streams of water were directed to it and
it was not long before the last spark was
flooded. :
‘When the smoke had cleared out, an
investigation revealed the fact that the
fire originated in the rear end of the
cellar and had evidently been burning
for some time before the discovery was
made, as the heavy joists and a large
part of the floor were burned out. The
cause of the fire is not definitely known,
though it is supposed to have been from
spontaneous combustion. There were
several cases of glass goods, packed in
swamp grass, immediately under the
place where the fire began and it is
thought that the grass being damp had
become heated and taken fire.
Ed Irvin, who manages the store, was
out of town, having started on a bicy-
cle ride to his home, at Julian, just a
few minutes before the fire was discov-
ered. The only damage to the stock
was done by the water and smoke, as
both those elements are particularly
destructive to hardware goods. Mr Ir-
vin estimates his loss quite heavy. The
insurance adjusters are at work on the
case and just as soon as a settlement is
effected the store will be open for busi-
ness again.
——The Lock Haven school “oard
has gotten itself into a rather coupro-
mising position by accusing contractor
Tate of this place of being in ‘‘cohoot”
with architect Cole, both of whom are
employed on the new school building in
that city. Messrs Tate and Cole are rep-
utable men and should demand a re-
traction of such a charge as can surely '
have been made from no other than a
" malicious motive.

resident of Lock Haven, was killed on

——While driving up the mountain
from Centre Hall, on last Saturday
evening, Robert Roan, a young man liv-
ing in Buffalo Run, who was accompa-
nied by a young lady met with an acci-
dent which proved rather disastrous.
They were driving a horse from Potter’s
livery stable, in this place, and "some-
thing frightened it causing it to plunge
over the bank. The occupants of the
buggy jumped and escaped uninjured,
but the horse fell over the bank and
was killed.
—— About two weeks ago an oid man
named Shearer, of Black Bear, went
into Philipsburg where he hired a horse
and buggy, ostensibly to attend a funeral
at Port Matilda. He did go to Port,
but continued to Bradford county, where
he has relatives. Liveryman Adams
started to look the matter up and tele-
graphed the Bradtord officials to arrest
the old thief. They did so, but the
horse died the day after its recovery in
Bradford, and Shearer escaped over the
line into New York state. He served
a term in prison for horse stealing some
years ago.
—On Monday morning a new schedule
went into effect on the rail-road between
this place and Snow Shoe, whereby the
the train service was reduced to one
train a day. Formerly a passenger train
left Snow Shoe in the early morning,
ran into Bellefonte and returned to
Snow Shoe at noon, making a corres-
ponding trip in the afternoon, but un-
der the new schedule the train will
leave this place at 8:58 a. m., arriving
in Snow Shoe at 10:23 a. m. Leave
Snow Shoe at 8:00 p. m., arriving in
Bellefonte at 4:50 p. m.
Such an arrangement has undoubted-
ly.been necessitated by the dullness of
traffic and we hope will not prove a
permanent one. It is extremely unsatis-
factory to both ends of the line and will
i have a tendency to drive away what lit-
tle trade from that region Bellefonte

kilns of A. G. Morris, on Buffalo Run,
were badly damaged by fire and yester-

them with destruction. Shortly after din=

It was still very hot and being dumped,
