The Funny Side of It.
Those who have been following up
the great fight in the Republican party
in Pennsylvania have been treated to
a most laughable conclusion within the
past few days.
PorTER combine, having realized that
old man Quay has still a trifle too
much ginger in him for their embry-
onic political schemes, have ordered
their organs to cry for party unity.
They are beginning to make all kinds
. of propositions ‘to settle the fight and
restore barmony.” The last being to
allow Governor HasriNGs to be perma-
~ nent chairman of the State Convention
and in turn to make Mr. Quay chair-
man of the State committee.
Now this is all Mr. Quay has
ever asked for. He said at the
opening of hostilities that he had
nothing to throw in the way of the
Governor's wish to be chairman of the
Convention and the latter's organs, in
having run up the white flag, practical-
ly "confess the combine's deteat.
It reminds us of a story about a
Bellefonte boy, who once picked a fight
with another boy much smaller than
hiweelf. The would-be bully was
promptly licked and then ran bawling
to his mother, who bad no sympathy
for him under the circumstances. He
then blurted out “If he bad stood still
and kept his hands down I could have
Just s0 with the Hastings com-
bine. It Quay had been scared by the
pretentious rattle and bang made
against him at the start of the fight
and bad quietly waited to be licked he
would have gotten it, no doubt. But
that isn’t his way of fighting political
battles’ and the way the combine is
begging for a truce now is the best evi-
dence of it.

The Cornell Oarsmen in England.
The appearance of the Cornell Uni-
versity eight oar boat crew at the Hen-
ley, England, regatta this week is look-
ed upon by all Americans with as much
avidity as if some international ques-
tion of state were at issue. The Ithi-
cans, not being able to arrange races
with Harvard or Yale, went abroad
with the hope of winning from the
champion English oarsmen and in that
way lay claim to the World's cham-
pionship. The climatic conditions
there told seriously in their work, on
Wednesday, when three of the men
were utterly exhausted before the trial
heat with the Trinity Hall crew was
half over. They lost it, of course, and
most unfortunately, too, since the day
before they had won an uncontested
trial heat from the Leander crew, the
latter having failed to start. The Le-
anders abused them for an imaginary
ungportsmanlike proceeding, much of
which the Coruellians could have re-
verted to the Englishmen had they not
failed yesterday. .
The difference between the quick,
mechanical arm stroke of our oarsmen
and toe long body sweep of the foreign-
ers has beeh noted, though it is un-
fair to draw a comparieon on these re-
sults, ince the Coraell crew is unmis-
takably out of condition, owing to an

The chief executive officer of the

backing he can get in his effort to

able evidence that he made a great
blunder in signing the religious garb
bill. What he may have gained in
the darx-lantern lodges he finds he has

citizena who are opposed to sectarian
He bas occasion to discover that in
Lancaster county, particularly, where
the bill has outraged the Mennonites
and Duukards, public sentiment has
set strongly against him, and that
Quay will carry the county by a large
majority. Reliable information is to !
the effect that in consequence of tee |
dissatistaction with the religious garb
bill the Republican majority next elec- |
tion will be 5000 less than it was last
year, in addition to its having made
HasTiNGs extremely unpopular. The
people in the county afrected by this
bill, are particularly disgusted by the
duplicity displaved in his assurance
that he would veto it and his subse-
quent approval of it at the demand of

ALLENTOWN, July 9.—While the in-
dustrial improvement in and around this
city cannot be said to have as yet ap-
proached the proportions of a boom,
there has within the past few weeks been
a great change for the better, with a
promise of better things to come. The
silk and furniture industries, two of the
most important here, are running full

Button works have been purchased by
Givernaud Bros., of New York, who
have converted it into a silk mill.
For the present only forty looms are
in operation. Fifty-five are still to be
erected, while a lot more are in transit.
When the two buildings are in full op-
eration they will contain 350 looms, em-
ploying over 400 persons. Twelve wind-
ing machines, running 1,800 spindles,
and ten warping machines, arealso be-
ing put in operation. The product of
the mill will be only the finest grade
and quality of broad silk.
There has been an advance of 10 per
cent. in the wages of the Consolidated
Steel and Iron works, one of the largest
establishments in the ‘Lehigh valley,
about 500 hands being affected by the in-

the memorable strike several years ago.
Several of the old hands, who had mov-
ed away from Fullerton, are returning
and the prospects are that the village
will assume to some extent its former
activity. From 100 to 150 hands will
be employed in the start, and, if Pusi-
ness permits, the forces will be increased
Frightful Railroad Wreck,
The Second Section of a Canadian Excursion
Train Crushed Into the First Section.
QUEBEC, July 9.—A terrible accident
occurred at 8 o’clock this mornng at
Craig’s Road Station, on the Grand
Trunk railway, about fourteen miles
west of Levis.
A very large pilgrimage from Sher-
brooke, Windsor Mills and Richmond
had left the latter town about 10 o’clock
last night for the shrine of St. Ann de
Beaupre. There were two sections of
the train, one running a few minutes
behind the other. The first section was
standing at the Craig Road station tak-
ing water, when the second section,
passing the semaphore, dashed into the
rear Pullman coach of the first section,
smashing it to kindling wood and kill-
ing, it is said, everybody in that car ex-
cept the Pullman conductor, who
Engineer McLeod and Fireman Perk-
ins, of the second section, were killed
outright. The Pullman coach was
telescoped into the first class cars of the

twenty-five and the number injured

Only One Idle Industry.
READING, July 9.—Orders were issu-
ed yesterday for the resumption of the
Keystone furnaces of the Reading Iron
company, and employes are now at work
getting them in readiness. There are
two stacks at the Keystone furnaces,and
their product is between 40,000 and 50,-
000 tons of pig iron per year. Recent-
ly there has been such a lively demand’
for pig iron from the various plants of
the company that its other furnaces were
unable to furnish it fast enough. The
resumption of the Keystone furnaces
leaves but one idle industry in Reading.
All others are working full handed and
many over time. The, Keystone fur-
naces have been idle since November.

Cornell Given a Heat.

Start.—The Challenge Cup Holders Claim
They Were Not Ready When the Word “Go»
Was Given—The Americans Awarded the Heat
by the Umpire—The Cornell Bight to Try Con.
clusions With the New College Crew To-Day.
HENLEY, July 9.—Good weather and
a record-breaking crowd for numbers
attended the opening of the regatta
here to-day. The principal event wag
the eigh-oared race for the Grand Chal.
lenge cup, which is rowed in heats, the
final one being decided on the last day
of the regatta. The crews entered were
the Leander Boat club, holder of the
cup’; the Thames Rowing club, the
London Rowing club, the New College
(Oxford) Rowing club, the Cornell Uni
versity Boat club, Trinity Hall (Cam.
bridge) Rowing club and the Eton Col-
lege Rowing club. The first heat was
won by Trinity Hall, who beat the
London Rowing club by six lengthe,
The second heat was won by Eton,
who beat the Thames Rowing crew a
length and a quarter.
Then came the heat of the greatest
interest, both to Englishmen and
Americans. The Cornell crew had
drawn to contest with the Leander
club, which was considered the strong-
est crew in the race.
It appears that when Umpire Wil.
lard asked if they were ready, some one
in the Leander's boat said “Yes,
whereupon the umpire gave the word
“Go!” Almost at the same time the
stroke of the Leanders shouted “No,
no!” The Leanders, or part of them,
at least, made a faint attempt to get
away as the Cornells started, but i
was evident that the crew had no in.
tention of going over the course, though
for what reason nobody can imagine.
Cornell rowed leisurely over the course
and was \awarded the heat. The Le.
anders have protested the heat.
The Argonaut Rowing club’s four
and the four of the London club rowed
a terrific race in the first heat for the
Steward’s cup. The Argonauts had a
stroke of 42 to the minute and the Lon.
doners rowed ata 40 stroke. There
was never a distance of half a length
between them. and first one led by a
few feet and then the other, Coming
to the winning post, the London crew
made a final effort, and the Canadians,
feeling the eftect of their tremendous
exertions, were beaten by about three
feet. The finish was 80 close that it
was at first thought that the Argonaute
bad won. Time, 8.13.
New College and Cornell will row
against each other to-morrow in the
second round, while Eton rows with
Trinity Hall." Cornell and New Col-
Jege will both be fresh and in good
CORNELL BADLY BEATEN,
HeNLEY-ON-THAMES, July 10.—The
Cornell crew was beaten by eight
i by the Trinity Hall, (Cam-
bridge) crew this afternoon in the
fourth heat for the grand challenge
cup. The Lthacans were first to catch
the water, and lead for halfa mile,
when Freeborn dropped his oar and
put his bands to his face. Before he
could recover Trinity Hall was a
length ahead. Then Hager fell back-
ward, and before he had time toshake
himeelf together Fennell's head drop-
ped forward and he seemed about to
faint. This put Cornell out out of the
race. Dyer, Roe and Hall were the
only members of the crew who remain-
ed steadfast, and they virtually did all
the rowing, each looking the picture
of dispair. When the craft crossed the
finishing line Fennell fell into a dead
faint. The men seemed to have been
As the Cornell crew pulled to the
judges’ stand in order to go through
the formality of leaving their weights,
they were all looking like death. About
the stand was a crowd of Leander men
in their boats, and one of them said :
“I suppose you lost on account of the |
hard race you “had yesterday?’ Aun-
other Leander man jeeringly remark-
ed: “Of course you are coming again
in '96 2’ The Cornell men made no re-
ply to these sneers.
Moore's Fruit Crop Report.
WasniNgtoN, July 9.—The first
fruit crop report signed by Professor
Phillis Moore, the new chief of the
weather bureau, issued to-day, says the
temperature conditions of the week
have been favorable throughout the
country, but the northern and central
portions of the cotton region have suf-
fered from excessive rains, while
drought conditions in Michigan and
Minnesota have been intensified.
Northern New York, central Ohio and
eastern Iowa are also suffering from
drought. Detailed reports from New
Jersey and Pennsylvania follow : New
Jersey—Conditions unfavorable for
harvest ; growing crops greatly stimu-
lated by cloudy, humid weather. Penn-
sylvania—Oats, corn and grass much
improved ; harvesting and haying well

New York, July 8.—The Times will

Ducey, pastor of St. Leos Roman
Catholic church in this city, is 8u-
thority for the statement that the pope
has promulgated a decree abolishing
all the days ot abstinence in the year,
except Fridays even during lent. "This
decree, however, is applicable only to
poor persons and their families.”
That such a papal decree had been
issued has been surmised in Catholic
circles for some time. That it was an
absolute fact Father Ducey assured a

Great Coal Shipment.
PrrrsBuRe, July 9.—There are good

Cambria Iron Company Adds Two Millions to
PHILADELPHIA, July 10.—To-day
udded $2,000,000 to the capital of the\
Cambria iron company, making the
total $7,000,000. It was the last day
upon which subscriptions could be made
to the new stock, and when the books
closed it was found that all had been
taken. This result was not unexpected,
in view of the revival of the iron and
steel industry, and the fact that Drexel
& Co., had underwritten the entire issue
and agreed to purchase all stock not
taken by shareholdors. The proceeds
from the sale of the $2,000,000 new stock
will be used for the recent extension and
improvements of the company’s plant at
It is understood the company will
shortly declare a stock dividend of 12}
per cent on the total capital of $7,000, +
000, which will further increase it to
$7,875,000. This will leave $2,125,000
yet to be issued, the authorized capital
The Cambria iron company presents a
remarkable history of prosperity. For
30 consecutive years it has regularly
paid dividends, not even suspending
them during the memorable flood at
Johnstown, which swept away a large
portion of its plant, nor during the un-
precedented depression of the past three
years. Last year the company’s sur-
plus and undivided profits were estima-
ted at $4,000,000.
About Five Millions.
Will Be Spent In Pennsylvania Railroad Im.
PHILADELPHIA, July 10.—The Penn-
sylvania railroad company this year
will spend in the neighborhood of
$5,000,000 in the way of improvements,
alterations and extensions to its proper-
ty east and west of Pittsburg. The
amount will be almost equally divided
between these two sections.
Oa the lines west of Pittsburg the
largest expenditures will be in the con-
struction of the new bridge at Cincin-
nati. This will take about $600,600.
The company will make the Cleveland
& Marietta a low-grade road which will
do away with the tunnel about 15 miles
south of Newcomerstown, on the Pan-
handle. The company’s share of the
construction of the new Union depot at
Dayton, O., will be $250,000, and a like
amount is to be expended in Columbus
in doing away with grade crossings. On
the Panhandle line $200,000 will be
spent in widening the tunnels, of which
there are two left on this division.
Another expenditure is to be made in
the building of 1,500 cars to meet the
demand for lake iron ore and coal
traffic. The company’s new loan of
$5,000,000 in London ‘at 3} per cent per
annum is to be devoted toward these

Orders for Structural Iron Still Pouring Into

from Honolulu to the effect that ex-

are plotting to form an alliance with
Japan by her marriage to a Japanese
count. The Japanese have 30,000
residents on the island and with this
