Bellefonte, Pa., Jan. 5, 1894.
P. GRAY MEEK, - - - EpiTor
Call for the Democratic State Con-
ALLENTOWN, Pa., December 15, 1893.
—The delegates elected to the Demo-
cratic State Convention of 1893 are
hereby called to meet at the Opera
House in the city of Harrisburg on
Wednesday, January 10th, 1894, at
12 o'clock noon, for the purpose of
placing in nomination a candidate for
Cougressman-at-Large, to fill theva-
cancy occasioned by the death of
the Hon. Wm. Lilly.
J. MarsHaLL WRIGHT,
Chairman Democratic State Central
* «Ring Out the Old, Ring in the New.”
The sphere of political life has its
beginnings and its ending just as all oth-
ers and as time rolls on one lot of men
are set up while others are being taken
down by their party. This is true only
go far as the occupation of public office
is concerned. For a party never
wearies of its honest supporters, and
those who have enjoyed its honors
never forget the principles that are
dear to them.
With the beginning of 1894 Centre
county called three new men to serve
her, Joan P. CoNpo to be Sheriff;
Jorn Q. Mires to be Treasurer and
George W. RU.MBERGER to be Register
and as these gentlemen were sworn
into office their predecessors, WILLIAM
A. IsHLER, JaMEs J. GRAMLEY and
Jon~ A. Rupp, retired. All the new
officials qualified before Recorder W.
G. Morr1soN, he having been sworn to
succeed himself by Prothonotary
Smita. In all six new officials and
four old ones took the oath of office.
The others were Auditors H. W. Bick:
LE, W. W. Rover and J. D. WAGNER,
and Commissioners T. F. Apams, Geo.
L. GooprarT and James B. StronMm.
The new Sheriff moved into the jail
on Monday and his deputy, Mr. CALVIN
WEAVER, lives there also. Both gen-
tlemen are being tutored in their work
by ex-Sheriff T. J. DuNDLE and it will
not be long until they have mastered
the routine of the office. Both gentle-
men will make popular officials and
will serve the county with the fidelity
that will merit the commendation of
Jonny Q. Mires and his assistant, O.
D. EBBERTs, his son-in-law, are hard at
work in the Treasurer's office. Busy
as they are, however, they find time to
chat with their many friends who drop
in to wish them well. Mr. MiLEs is
one of the best known men in the
county and his official career will only
tend to increase his popularity.
The new Register is not a stranger
to the Court House, for he was Com-
missoiner’s clerk for six years and while
holding that office he so ingratiated
himself into the good will of the people
of the county that they elected him
last fall by a rousing majority. G. W.
RumBERGER i8 an old line Democrat
who will be an honor to the party and
a credit to himself.
As for the re-elected officials suffice
it to say they would not have been
where they are to-day had their pre-
vious records not been all that could
have been desired.
The retiring Sheriff, Wa. A. IsHLER,
goes from the office with the coon-
sciousness that he has done his duty
and that during his incumbency of
three years the county has not had a
more faithful officer. His deputy,
GeorGE B. CRAWFORD, is a sharer in
the honor that is due the conduct of that
office during the term just ended and
we congratulate both gentlemen on the
clean record they carry with them into
private life again.
Hard working, always cheerful JAMES
GRAMLEY gave away to Mr. MILES, on
Monday morning, knowing full well
that he left behind him a record of
which any man might be proud. He
was a popular official and his retire-
ment to take up the businessofa
merchant is attended with the best
wishes of his many friends.
The one Democrat to whose lot
befell the honor of keeping a county
office free from Republican defiling
when the trouble of 1887 carried
everything to the Republicans, is Mr.
Joun A. Rupp, the retired Register.
His career as a public officer has been:
one of usefulness to his party and die-
tinguishment to himself. Always
conservative he touched the popular
fancy of what an ideal county officer
should be and he left the Court House
Monday morning numbering every
man, with whom he came in contact
inan official wav, a friend.
The Wheels Starting Again.
An encouraging change in the pres-
ent depressed condition of business is
geen in the gradual resumption of
work by manufacturing establishment
that suspended operations daring the
past summer. Notices of such re
sumptions are seen every day in the
newspapers, including various lines of
manufacture, and observable in differ:
ent parts of the country. This not
ouly indicates a return of confidence on
the part of manufacturers, but it shows
that the overstocked market has dis-
posed of its surplus and a demand is
springing up for a new supply.
It cannot be expected that such a
suspension of production as we have
can be continued for an indefinite pe-
riod. The American manufacturer, it
is true, has not the advantage of a for-
eign market in which to dispose of his
surplus, owing to the limitation of an
illiberal tariff policy ; but the require
ments of our own people, numbering
nearly seventy millions, are large
enough to reduce the overstock with
which our home market was encum-
bered by overstimulated production.
The stagnation has lasted nearly a
vear, during a large portion of which
time manufacture has been limited
and in some lines almost entirely sus-
pended. It is easy to see how con-
sumption is disposing of the surplus
supply which caused the stagnation,
and why the industries are starting up
The return of industrial activity, af
ter it has once begun, may be expected
to assume larger proportions
day. A settled tariff policy, such as
Congress is about to give the country,
will accelerate it und add to its stabili-
ty. Those who shall be first to put
their industrial works in operation
will be the first to reap the fruits of
Anticipating the New Tariff.
Mr. AxprEw CARNEGIE has an en:
couraging way of showing his confi:
dence in the improvement of the busi:
ness situation. He has given orders to
have his mills put in operation, and to
take all the contracts that may be of-
fered. By such a policy he not only
shows that he believes that the worst
of the industrial depression is over, but
he materially assists in restoring
confidence in other manufacturers by
his encouraging example.
The great Braddock manufacturer
does not appear to be alarmed at the
prospect of another reduction of the
duty on steel. In fact, previous to the
last Presidential election, he had made
up his mind, that his product could
fare very well without all the tariff
coddling which the high protectionists
were claiming that it needed, and
therefore he showed an indifference
ahout furnishing the pecuniary assist-
ance to the high tariff cause which the
Harrison managers demanded of him.
That he believes that a Democratic
tariff is not going to injure his interest,
or that of any other steel or iron
manufacturer, is shown by his disposi
tion to anticipate the passage of the
Wirsox bill with his works in full
Crazed by the Grip.
Sad Eventin the Life of a Well Known Educator
—The President of Media Academy for Boys
Driven out of his Mind by the Epidemic Shoots
His Bride of Siz Weeks.
Mepis, Dec. 31.—While suffering
from insanity, due to an attack of the
grip, Swithen C. Shortlidge, priacipal
of Shortlidge’s Academy for Young Men
this morning, shot and killed his wife
instantly while walking with her in a
country road near theschool. Profess-
or Shortlidge has been arrested and is
now raviag in a cell of the county jail.
On November 15 last, Professor
Shortlidge for the second time married,
his second wife being Miss Marie
Dixon Jones, a young and pretty in-
structor at Wilson College, at Cham-
bersburg. Miss Jones was well known
in society here, her brother being the
rector at Christ's P. E. church and
her mother is Dr. Mary Ann Dixon
Joues, a well known practicing physi-
cian in Brooklyn. Although Professor
Shortlidge is 53 years and his wife 27,
their married life gave every promise
of being happy and congenial. Pro-
fessor Shortlidge had been unwell for
some time prior to his marriage, but
until the 14th of the [present month,
when he was attacked with grip, his
illnees was not serious.
Since he has had the grip, however,
Professor Shortlidge has given many
indications of being mentally affected,
and hig family have watched him
closely. Last night he got out of bed
and insisted upon taking a walk and
sooner than let him go alone, his wife
accompanied him, [tis supposed that
the same notion suddenly possessed
him this morning about 9.30, and that
his wife again went with him. That
the walk was hurriedly decided upon
was shown by the fact that both Pro.
fessor and Mrs. Shortlidge had their
night clothes on under their other
garments, What word or incident led
i was performed by
up to the terrible tragedy is not known. |
Several people met the Professor and
Mrs. Shortlidge sanatering down a
road near the school, and spoke to
them, but the sound of the revolver
shots on the clear air was the firat
intimation that any person near by
heard of the unfortunate man’s crime.
Attracted by the shots several men
ran toward the spot and in the dirty
snow tinged mud of the road where
lay the bodies of Professor Shortlidge
and his wife. The former was
stretched across the body of his wife
moaning: “Marie, Marie, speak to
me! speak to me! What havel done?
What have [ done?”
A dark red stream ot blood was
flowing from beneath Mrs. Shortlidge’s
head and forming a horrible pool in
the muddy road. Close beside the pair
was a revolver. The men raised the
Professor trom the body of his wife and
then they found that she was dead,
the whole back of her head being
crushed in by the bullets that had en-
tered it. - Coroner Quinby appeared in
about half an hour and directed that
the body be removed, and the raving
maniac who had done the awful work
was taken in a passing wagon to the
county jail. Itis anticipated that if
technicalities of a legal nature do not
form obstacles, Professor Shortlidge
will be transferred without delay to
the State Asylum for the Insane at
Norristown. His present state excites |
the pity of those who are carefully
watching him, as he walks about his
cell moaning because his dead wife
does not come to his side.
Professor Shortlidge is a graduate of
Harvard College and his academy has
been well and favorably known
throughout the country. He is a
brother ot our esteemed townsman Col.
Wa. Shortlidge, of McCalmont & Co.
Implement dealers and is also a broth-
er of Prof. Joseph Shortlidge, of Con-
cordville, who at one time was presi
dent of the Pennsylvania State College.
Another brother is Mayor of Wilming-
WAS UNDOUBTEDLY INSANE.
Mepis, Pa., Jannary 1.—Coroner
Quinby to-day held an inquest over the
body of Mrs. Marie Shortlidge, who
was shot and killed yesterday by her
husband, S. C. Shortlidge, principal of
the Media academy. Dr. Mary Abn
Jones, mother of Mrs. Shortlidge, testi-
fied that she had never seen anything
but love and kindness shown by Pro-
fessor Shortiidge to her daughter and
that she had never known them to
have a quarrel. Dr. Laine, the
Shortlidge family physician, testifled
he warned Mrs. Shorilidge two weeks
ago that her husband was liable to a
violent outbreak and that she had
promised to watch him closely. The
jury, after hearing several other wit-
nesses, returned a verdict that Professor
Shortlidge killed his wife while insane.
Professor Shortlidge’s frienas will ap:
ply to Judge Clayton for a commission
in lunacy and he will be sent to the
Norristown insane asylum. Professor
Shortlidge was not present at the in.
quest, it being decided that his condi-
tion precluded bringing iato court.
Funeral services over the body of
Mrs. Shortlidge will be held on
Wednesday and the interment will take
place at Brooklyn,

——The announcement of the mar-
riage of Miss Rose Sternberg and:
Moyer Lyon was somewhat of a sur
prise to the people of Kellefonte, who
had not an idea thatsuch a thought was
contemplated. The wedding was sol-
emnized in Allentown, at the home of
the bride’s sister Mrs. S. H. Lichten,
the day after Christmas and was a
very quiet affair. The bride and groom
are hoth well known throughout the
community and the ~~ WATCHMAN,

——A swindler was brought to jail
the other day for having worked on the
sympathy of Boalsburg and Potters-
bank residents to the tune of consider-
able money. He professed to be col-
lecting charity for John Wolfe, whose
house burned down at Centre Hall,
and then for John Scott, but his stories
didn’t work and constable Alf. Osman,
of Boalsburg, brought him to jail.
——The sudden death of Mary Jane
Glenn at her home on Spring street,
on Wednesday of last week, was a
shock to community in which she re-
sided and had many friends who were
aot aware of her dangerous. illnese.
Typhoid pneumonia is given as the
cause of her death, but itis not defi-
nitely known to be true as the unfortu-
nate woman was found unconscious in
the kitchen of her home, by neighbors,
and never spoke a word aftewards.
Deceased was about fifty years of age
and was a member of the Presbyterian
church. Funeral services were held
on last Friday. One sister, Mrs. Maj.

A very pretty wedding was sol-
emnized Thursday, the 28th of Decem—
ber, in the Presbyterian church, at
Boalsburg, when Mise Mary Laura
Woods and Prof. Edgar Sands Place,
were united in marriage by Rev. J. H,
Heany, assisted by the Rev. Mr. Black.
The bridal chorus was sung by six little
girls dressed in white, who were closely
followed up the aisle by the ushers
Messrs Goheen and Woods. The groom
and his best man Mr. Frank McFar-
Jane, the brides maids Miss Place a nd
Miss Nellie Wcods, and the bride on
the arm of ber father Dr. J. F. Woods.
After the reception at the house, the
young people were driven to Belle-

——The injunction case which Wm.
H. Long, his wife and his mother-in-law
brought against the borough of Howard
to restrain said borough from taking wa-
ter for public use from a small trib utary
of Lick run was argued before Judges
Furst, Riley and Faulkner last week.
The evidence as brought out at the
hearing places the plaintiffs in a rather
enigmatical position, for after having
admitted that the water service propos-
ed would be a benefit to them they
brought suit to recover $3000 damages
for impairment to their water power.
The Longs operate a grist mill, which is
located on Lick run, but of recent yearg
it has been run by steam and the old
dam not even kept in repair; so that
now when Howard borough has built a
reservoir at the mouth of one of the
small feeders of the run they claim that
a water power which they have not been
using is impaired. Careful estimates
place the amount of water diverted from
the stream at one horse power. The
court refused the injunction, but re-
quired the borough of Howard to file a
bond ot $500 that W. H. Long et al
may have recourse to in case they are
awarded damages for possible loss
through the running over their property
which the construction of the reservoir
and laying of the pipes necessitated.

All our churches celebrated the Christmas
festival in the usual way with glad anthems,
good cheer and toothsome candy. The Luth-
erans rather out did the others in the way of
decorations as they used potted planis ever-
greens and ferns besides two beautiful Christ-
mas trees well ladened with presents,
perhaps the most costly of which was a §20
violin for Arthur Fortney, who bids fair to
become a musician. At Pine Hall the exer-
cises were exceptionally good and parent and
child were treated alike. Rev. C. T. Aikens
had charge of the program while Prof. Frank
McCormick presided at the organ.
The Christmas festivities were brought to a
close New Year's evening at the academy hall
where the I. 0. 0. F. festival was held during
the latter vart of the holiday week. Not with.
standing the disagreeable weather, the crowd
was all that the boys expected and taking it

——Among the contents announced of the
January number of The Forum (which has

a noteworthy article on Sumner by Senator
Hoar, who knew Sumner as intimately as any-
body knew him; an article on “The New
Sactionalism: A Western Warning to the
East,” by Professor Keasbey, of thé Univers-
ity of Colorado, a new writer, buta careful and
independent student of public questions and a
writer ofboth power and charm; articles on
Foot-ball by Dr. D.B. St. John Roosa, the
celebrated physician of New York, President
Angell, of the University of Michigan, and
President Warfield of Lafayette College—an
interesting discussion from both the medical
and the educational point of view: a striking
literary article on ‘*Has Immigration Dried up
our Literature 2” by Mr, Sydney G. Fisher of
Philadelphia, and other notable discnssions.
——The New Year's (January) Home and
Country is replete with good things. Of the
illastrated aiticles. “Ready to Make an As-
signment. A business man’s story of the pan-
ie,” “Kissing and Kisses,” “The Develope.
ment of Light Cavalry. The Dragoons,” and
“an American Girl in London. A reminis-
cence,” are worthy of special mention. The
American student and those who delight in
“looking backwards,” will be interested in
“Pioneers in American Literature. From
Capt. John Smith to Edgar Allan Poe,” Pensa-
cola Navy Yard, Old Fort Pickens” and ‘‘An.
thropoid Apes. Gorilla, Chimpanzee and
Orang-Outang;” while lovers of light litera.
ture will find much that is enjoyable in “La
Belle Anglaise. A novel,” ‘“How No. 99 Beat
the Record: The story of an old time locomo-
tive engineer,” and * Merritt Foster. An in
cident of the Civil War. Homé and Country is
published monthly at 53 East 10th Street, New
