Not a Good Witness.
Now that Mr."A. V. MILLER has ge-
cured Josniua FouLk as a certifier to
his bravery and honesty as a soldier,
we suppose he feels that the record is
all right. If Aram had only ap-
preciated how little respect the people
have for, or how little reliance they
place in JosHUA's statement he would
come to the conclusion that he basn’t
added much to his discretion as a citi-
zen or to his reputation as a soldier,
by furnishing him as a voucher.
Here, where JosHUA i8 best known, and
where people have reason to know
him, there is not one man in ten who
would give any consideration to any-
thing he would assert; and when the
Republican candidate for prothonotary
is compelled to fall back on such a
witness, to prove his character and
honesty, he is only showing, in the
plaioest way, how little reason the peo-
ple of the county have for entrusting
to him one of the most important of-
fices in their gifts”
The State Treasury Abuse.
The Philadelphia Ledger continues
its complaint about the dribbling man-
ner in which the state treasurer pays
the school money due the city of Phila-
On the 30th of June, the end of the
fiscal year, the treasury was short one
million of dollars in its payment of
the city's school claim. There was no
reason why -this money should not
have been paid during that year, ex-
cept that it was being used for another
purpose in no way conngected with the
legitimate business of the treasury.
In August the state treasurer man-
aged to pay $150,000 of this overdue
school money to the city treasury ; in
September he gave another driblet of
$150,000, and on the 19th of October
another payment of $175,000 was
made, these reluctant instaliments
amounting to not one half of the sum
that was overdue on the 1st of July,
while the balance in the treasury was
at that time officially reported to be
There is but one explanation of this
kind of business. The money in
charge of the state treasurer is more
than enough to pay all the school
claims promptly, but that official has
it out at interest for the benefit of pri-
vate parties, and does not find it con-
venient to draw it in when payment
should be made to those who are law-
fully entitled to it. Thiséxplains not
only the Philadelphia delinquency,
but also why more than two millions
of dollars due the schools of the State
This vicious practice of making pri-
vate gain out of the state money will
2o on, and get worse every year, if not
rebuked by the people. That it is
worse at this time than it ever was be-
tore is largely due to the immense Re-
publican majority last year, which
has encouraged the Republican custo-
dians of the state funds to believe that
they can do almost anything with it
without being called to account. :
Will the people confirm them in this
belief by giving the Republican candi-
date for state treasurer this year the
usual majority ?
Will the People Endorse It?
The present State administration
has played inte the hands of monopo-
lizing corporations whenever it has
been called upon to do so. The con-
sequence ig that new forms of tribute
to overgrown monopoly are exacted of
Take the case of the Philadelphia
and Pittsburg street railways. With
the competition that existed between a
number of lines the people’s interest
was protected. That was an advan-
tage to which they were clearly enti-
tled, and which legitimate competition
always furnishes them.
But immediately after the election
of Hastings a monopolistic combina-
tion was formed in each of those cities
io bring the street railways under a
consolidation control. The required
Jegiclation wae readily furnished by a
Republican Legislature and Governor,
and the citizens are now at the mercy
of those unrestrained corporations that
can charge such fares as will bring
them in the largest profits.
A new schedule of fares has accord-
ingly been arranged in Philadelphia
that deprives the people of transfer
privileges, which they had when there
were competing lines, and several mil-
lions more per annum will be added
to the profits of this grasping mo-
nopoly. These transfers were very
beneficial to laboring men, who use the
cars in going a long distance to and
from their work, but they must now
pay an increased fare in order that the
dividends of the street railway mag-
nates, already too large, may be made
This outrage upon the people of
Philadelphia and Pittsburg was not
dared to be attempted while there was
a Democratic Governor at the head
of the state government. However
much Republican Legislatures were
disposed to favor it, they were re-
strained by the knowledge that Ros-
ERT E. ParTicoN would veto their proj-
ect ; but after the election of HastiNGs
not a moment was wasted in effecting
their scheme of extortion upon street
It may be said that such treatment
serves those two cities about right in
view of the big majorities they gave
the state officials who have enabled
these corporations to oppress them,
but still they are to be pitied for hav-
ing made themselves the victims of
their own political fanaticism.
But the people of the State at large
‘are suffering from another act of this
state administration that has subjected
them to a monopolistic extortion of a
more general character. There is not
a householder in the State who has
not been made to pay increased trib-
ute to the Standard oil company by
Governor Hastings’ signing the MaR-
SHALL pipe-line bill—a scheme of
monopolistic robbery that was “hung
up” while Roperr E. ParrisoN had
command of the veto power.
By the oil product being thus put
entirely under the control of that cor-
poration the price of coal oil was im-
mediately advanced. This extortion,
entering every household in the State,
amounts in the aggregate to millions,
which Governor HarsinGs, either for
personal or partisan gain, has enabled
the greediest monopoly on earth to ex-
act from all classes of Pennsylvania
A few parties in official stations, to- |
gether with their outside pals, may
have made, in this connection, many
thousands of dollars from tips given
them by the Standard in the oil gam-
ble that was gotten up immediately af-
ter the signing of the pipeline bill,
but how will this. compensate the
farmer and mechanic who, when he
lights his coal oil lamp in the evening,
is reminded of the increased expense
he has been put to in the price of oil
in order that this gentry, official as
well as corporate, might increase their
ill-gotten wealth ?
The fact of these corporate extor-
tions are as self-evident ‘as the day-
light. The people are fully cognizant
of them. They see and feel their ef-
fecte. They know from what source
they come. Now are they ready to
endorse and maintain the party that is
‘responsible for them? Have they a
right to complain of being made the
victims of such unfaithful public serv-
ice if they make no sign of their disap-
proval at the polls ? . Does it become
them to be even dissatisfied with this
corporate robbery if they endorse
the Hastings administration by their
The Records Prove 1t.
Hexry [QUIGLEY was admitted to
the bar April 16th, 1891. Four and
one half years have elapsed since then,
yet he has never had a case in court.
By this we mean he has never at-
tempted to carry one through himself.
Though the records do not show it
there ig a report current that he once
participated in the trial of ONE CASE
before a jury, that is, he made the
opening speech, but further than that
he had nothing to do with it.
Last week the Gazette charged us
with falsifying in saying that QuicLEY
has never tried a case in court and
tried to carry conviction with its
charge by publishing the following :
“The statement that Mr. QuicLeY has never
tried a case in court is equally false, as the
jurors who have sat before him in cases will
testify, and he’ has received many compli
ments from both Democrats and Republicans
on the skill he displayed in his brief but suc
cessful practice before the Centre county
It is a great pity that the editor of
the Gazette hasn't larger feet, for when
he etuck them into his mouth several
weeks ago, by admitting MiLLER’S in-
corapetency, they might have stopped
it up and saved him this second blan-
He does well to allude to Mr. Quic-
LEY's “BRIEF practice.” It has been
extremely brief. In four and one-half
years he has never tried a case by him-
self—the Gazette dares not contradict
this, for the records in the court-houge
prove it—yet its editor asks the voters
of Centre county to elect such a man
over one who has had three years val-
uable experience in office. Remember
this, when you draw comparisons be-
tween the men. Mr. QUIGLEY has
done next to nothing in court since be-
ing admitted to the bar, in truth, that
has been his life's record, while Mr.
SiNGER has had three year’s experience
as prosecuting attorney for the county.
Let the Gazette produce some of the
jurors who “have sat before him in
cages.” It knows it can’t and in its
madness it tries to deceive the people
by falling back on imaginary eadorse-
ments. Mr. QuicLey, himeelf, will
tell you that he has never participated
in more than one case, and that one he
merely opened—an opportunity for
him to make his maiden speech,
which, judging from the developments,
must have beer a dismal fzilure, since
no one has intrusted him with a case
The Gazette Crying Liar!
After having promised its readers a
fair and honest statement of facts dur-
ing the campaign now on the Gazette
last week devoted about half a column
to calling the editor of the Warcaman
liar and other invectives of a like na-
ture. This was done because, as the
Gazette charged, we had misquoted it
on the question of MILLER's incompe-
tency. In a recent issue we published
the following digest of the fifth para-
graph of its editorial under the caption
“Well Served,” as it ‘appeared in its
issue of October 4th.
“Mr. Miller’s failure as a business man was
due to charity, his incompetency would not
prevent him from engaging a suitable person
to fill the office.”
The fact that we condensed the Gla
zette's article has evidently encouraged
it to believe that if it.cried : liar ; sen-
sible people would be deceived and
overlook the condemnatory admission
of its blundering editor. From the ar-
ticle mentioned we quote as follows :
“MiLLER hae ordinary ability, supple.
mented by good sense enough to em-
ploy efficient help.” “The Republican
party will hold itself responsible for
the proper keeping of the office, etc.”
As to the words referring to Mr.
MiLLER'S failure as a business man we
need not even quote the Gazette, since
every one who knows MiLLer knows
that they are all too true.
Now if Mr, MiLLER has only “ordi-
nary” ability is he a fit man to be
made prothonotary? If he must fall
back on the Republican party “for the
proper keeping ofthe office’ is that a suf-
ficient guarantee to warrant anyone to
vote for him ? Do you remember when
this same promise was made tor Rob:
ERT Cook, whom they elected sheriff ?
Do you remember when the same
promise was made for that notorious
HENDERSON-DECKER board of com-
missioners. They were expensive illus-
trations of men with only “ordinary”
ability and the taxpayers will hardly
be likely to try the experiment again.
The Gazette tries to equirm out of its
admission by claiming that it was mis-
quoted. Admitting that it was in
words, but not in meaning, it assumes
a baby role and hopes to undo its bad
work in denying the admission its own
Fight Declared Off.
The Corbett- Fitzsimmons Battle Will Not Take
Place— What Martin Julian, Fitzsimmons’
Hor Springs, Ark., Oct. 21.—The
Corbett- Fitzsimmons fight has been de-
clared off by the Florida Athletic club.
Corbett and Brady were willing to
postpone the fight to Nov. 11, but Ju.
lian as Fitzsimmons’ representative,
was not, and the club then declared
the match off.” The negotiations were
brief and not in the best temper. Each
side charged the other with an at-
tempt either to get the better of the
bargain or to kill the fight altogether.
At.the conclusion of the talk, Martin
Julian, Fitzsimmons’ manager, said :
“I did all I could to make satisfac:
tory -arrangements, but the Corbett
people would not listen to reason. I
offered to let Fitzsimmons fight Cor-
bett in private for the side bet, but
they would not agree to it. They
wanted a postponement to Nov. II,
which was merely another way of say-
ing that they did not want to fight at
all. Of course I declined to listen. to
the proposition. Vendig and his
crowd tried their best to job us, but we
would not have it.”
Brady on the other hand, charged
that Julian flunked, and that he would
not agree to anything, ‘except a title
to the whole State of Arkansas,
with Governor Clark’s office to sleep
in,” as he expressed it.
Brady later announced that Corbett
was prepared to fight any man in the
world on Nov. 11, Robert Fitzsim-
mons preferred, the man to be named
within twenty-four hours. Vendig an-
nounced that he would match Peter
Maher against Corbett for £5,000.
The outcome of the muddle cannot
be foretold, but it looks as though
there will still be a fight of some kind
on Nov. 11.
Vote for Six,
That is What the Supreme Supreme Court Says.
Pittsburg, Oct., 17.—The supreme
court of Pennsylvania, sitting here to-
day, reversed tht recent decision of
judge Simonton, of Dauphin county,
and declared the act creating the su-
perior court of the State to be constitu-
tional. The opinion sustaining the
new court act was handed down by
justice Dean. Chief justice Sterrett
and associate justice Williams - dis-
sented, however. In his opinion jus-
tice Dean decided that but six of the
candidates can be voted for by an elec-
tor. Among other things justice
Dean says the courts are without au-
thority to revise the work of the state
Legislature, eo long as that work is in
strict harmony with the constitution.

~The Board of advisors of the 4th

——Wahile constable James McFeeley
and James Miller, of Altoona, were
hunting wild turkeys on the mountains,
in Huntingdon county, the former was
riddled with fine shot by G. W. Prath-
er, a Pittsburg gunner, who mistook the
Altoona man for a nice big gobbler.
The accident happened in this way : It
had grown dusk on the mountains when
McFeeley sat down on a log and took
out his turkey bone with which he be-
gan to call. It was not long until an
answering : gobble, gobble, gobble, came
from a knoll not far off. Thus encour-
aged he kept very still and tried to en-
tice the other turkey up to him, but
when he had accomplished his end a
flash and a sharp report told the story of
his- mistake. The other turkey had
been Prather and as he saw McFeeley’s
hat in the twilight he let go with the
result already mentioned.

beauty, the grace, the modesty and the
natural acting of Miss Nora O’Brien as

than persons in other places visited by
the Clarles B. Hanford, Elihu R. Spen-
cer and Nora O’Brien dramatic ‘confed-
eracy. Mies O'Brien is, so many smart
critics affirm, destined to accomplish
great things on the stage. In sweet
‘Portia’ she appears at he. best, for the
character is a many sided one. Mr.
Hanford will play old ‘Shylock’ and
Mr. Spencer will impersonate that
frolicsome blade, ‘‘Bassanio.” Every
other character in the piece will be play-
ed by an expert actor. James Cardon,
a player of ripe experience and rare
power, plays ‘‘Antonid,” the merchant,
from whose breast ‘Shylock’ hoped to
cut a pound of flesh. The scenery 1s
the finest of the sort ever presented to
an audience in Bellefonte.

CounciLs’ REGULAR BubpgETr., —
Council had rather an interesting ses-
sion Monday night. Interesting be-
[cause it promised a reform that the peo-
ple of the town have longed for for
some time, but there is little reason to
believe that the reform will follow coun-
cil’s promise. A body that enacts ordi-
nances which it never tries to enforce is
not the kind to inspire much confidence
in the public. However the past has
been we gladly accept this manitestation
of a determination to bring about a re-
form in the town as an atonement for
having neglected the demands of the
people for so long. i
The first business considered was the
petition of Jacob Knisely,and William
T. Royer, representatives of the Undine
fire company, that the annual appropri-
ation be paid to that organization at
Monroe Armor asked for a change of
grade near his east Linn street property
and urged the repair of Armor street,
between Linn and Lamb.
The Street committee reported work
on east High street, the widening of the
bridge over Logan’s branch, on Wil-
low-bank street, to conform to the street
as widened by the setting back of Sam-
uel Deihl’s fence. The committee was
of the opinion that Mr. Deihl has still
taken up borough property. A new
grade was reported for Pike alley and a
compromise for $300 was reported made
with W. E. Gheen for damages to his
lot through the opening of Armor
The Water committee reported a new
flue in No. 2 boiler at the water-works,
also a new concrete pavement along the
The Market committee reported the
collection of $4.10 fees, then the solicitor
was instructed to prepare a petition to
hand to court for the appointment of a
successor to high constable Michael
Berger, who has moved to Jeanette.
After this was all done council began
tearing up the police force. All man-
ner of complaints were made and from
the way things started out it looked
very much as if the officers were going
to lose their jobs, forth. with, but it final-
ly resolved itself into explicit directions
to the burgess to have the ordinance re-
lating to children being on the street af-
ter night strictly enforced, also to pro-
vide helmets for the officers and to see
that they wear them, reporting any de.
relictions at once.
It is to be hoped that council and the
burgess will have the courage to stand
up for the enforcement of their orders.
The way things have been running in
this place lately is indeed a disgrace.
Such spectacles as drunken children
making the air blue with their blas-
phemy are rot unusual in the West end
and, sad to relate, they have been allow-
ed to go so far in their wickedness that
many of them are incorrigible now and
have no fear, whatever, of an officer of
the law or a night in the lock-up.
Possibly it has never occurred to
them, but upon the council and burgess
of Bellefonts rests the blame for the con-
dition that is sure to make criminals of
a large percentage of these boys. Had
they been properly looked after by the
police they would never have become so
hardened in sin and brazen in their
manner that the probability of subduing
tham now is beyond reason.

The protracted hazing and other dis
graceful actions among the students has
brought several of their number to grief at the
hands of the faculty. The cool h&aded ones
have been instrumental in calli ng some meet-
ings in the College chapel, at which the whole
student body have given the question of self-
government thorough consideration. The
following committee has been elected by the
respective classes to represent them before
the faculty to secure power to enforce rules
.and regulations relating to the proper conduct
of the general student body viz. Seniors,
McCaskey, Carter and Kuhn; Junior, Hill;
Soph’s., Walker; Fresh., Carpenter; Sub-
Fresh, Parry. Self government has proven it
self to be a success just so long as the students
faithfully abide by the demands of its com-
mittee and no longer.
