vention, at the Opera House, on Tuesday
tho 12th Inst.
The attendance was quite large of repre
sentative men from all parts of the county
and although the caucusing bad been lively
and animated during the preceding after

The prohibitionist intend holding a state
convention and nominating somebody. We
suggest tbat tbey ratify Mr. Quay's candid
ate, the Hon. Samuel Butler, of Chester.
Ho was a warm supporter and advocate of
the local option bill in the last legislature,
thus filling the bill so far as requirements are
concerned ; besides, by this arrangement,tho
prohibition party would poll a decidedly
larger vote than it ever has before.
Butler, Quay's, Kemble' s and the republi
can ring candidate for state treasurer says
be will have the solid vote of the repub
licans of Philadelphia. This is probably
correct. He is certain, at least of that large
ly preponderating element known as the
"rounders" and "roosters." His Tote in the
Legislature against the expulsion of the no
torious Petroff, settled that business.
Bumbergoris not altogether unanimous
in his support of Butler for treasurer. The
Armstrong County Statesman fails to see
the fine point of discrimination indulged by
Mr, Quay's candidate In voting to kick him
out of the legislature while he sustained and
vindicated the noted rooster of Kemble's
coop, Emil J. Petrofi. To bts friends, pri
vately, Bumberger declares that he will not
take the stump or travel rainy nights for the
purpose of aiding Butler's election.
Maryland Democratic Nominations.
At Baltimore Friday the Democratic con-
vention unanimously nominated Hon. Wil

for governor ; 0. J, M. Gwinn was unani
mously renominated for attorney general,

nominated for comptroller. There was do
other nominations for these offices and they
were made without the formality of a call of I

A remarkable homicide has occurred In
Luzerne county. Frank Walker arrived at
Wilkes-Barre, called on thq District Attor

his open hand. An Investigation corrobora
ted his statement, and it was learned that
the name of the deceased was Thomas Jev
era. There were Borne half-dozen men sit
ting upon the turf, when there were hot
words, and the blow was given, resulting
fatally. Walker says tbat he traveled sixty
miles in order to arrive at the District At

payment, which brought on a lawsuit. Mr,

Among the numerous names presented to
tho convention on Tuesday, from which to
select a candidate for Bhoriff, It was hardly
possible to make A bad nomination. Of
the ten aspirants for tho place all were
"good men and true," Individually compe
tent to faithfully and efficiently discharge
tho ilutlc-i of the position. Consequently,
under theso circumstances, It U a high com-
lillment to the character and sterling honesty
of A. K. Smith, that he was selected from
among mkIi a list nf candidates to be the
standard-heftier of the Democracy nl Colum

their hands to bestow.
Mr. Smith was born and raised In Madi
son township, and comes of sturdy, old-fash
ioned Democratic stock. Madison has nev
er had a sheriff since the division of the
The name of Mr. Smith has been thrice be
fore presented In convention fur the nomi
nation and on the fourth trial ho has been
successful. To his credit be it said that
when previously defeated for the nomlna
tlon he submitted with the best of grace and
taking off his coat worked earnestly for the
election of his successful competitor. Ho
has never held an office, is In the prime of
vlgoroui life nod his election Is assured by
an overwhelming majority.
The convention made a prudent and prop
er selection in the nomination of I. K. 1)11
dine, E-q , of Mt. Pleasant township. While
there Is nothing political In the duties of the
office, It is at least a fair recognition of the
claims of the township, as well as an en
dorsement of an active, hardworking and
worthy Democrat.
The re-nomination of Eli Bobbins, E q.,
of Fishtngcreek township, for the position
of Jury Commissioner, Is a well-earned com
pliment to a faithful and conscientious of

Col. S. I. Rase as n Spiritualist.
The first Association of spiritualists are
holding n camp meeting on tho Bound Itrook
Boad, and the following from the Sunday
Tunis shows that Col. S. P. Case, one of the
founders and builders of the Heading & Co
lumbia B. B,, Is boss of the meeting. It Is
a racy sketch :
One of the funniest little disturbances
that has helped to lift the camp meeting ftf
fairs up out of the depths of monotony was
created by the appearance upon tho grounds
of Mrs. Mary E, Tillotson, tho reformer.
Mrs. Titlotson comes from Vineland, N. J.,
and she wears a bloomer costume. Her
woolen skirt only reaches to her knees, the
lower portion of her nether limbs be
ing encased in baggy pants. She is said to
be a really good woman with a screw loose
In her bead, which permits tbe ventilation
of some queer ideas upon the question of
dress. Her strange appearance and her wild
talk proved a counter-attraction to the talk
ing match that the Spiritualists were hold
ing, and everywhere that Mary wen', the
crowd was sure to go. This so aroused the
Ire of the camp meeting mauagers that Col.
P. Kase, the chairman of the committee,
ordered the lady from Vineland off the
grounds, because, as he said, her short skirts
were simply disgraceful, and the book she
was selling, entitled "Love and Transition,"
wns nothing more than a Free Love pamph
let. The dress reformer made the retort
"I don't know why," she said In loud
tones, so that all around her could hear,
'Col. Kase should object to toy short skirts
when at a seance held recently in his house
a spirit appeared dressed in little more than
nothing and Col. Kase urgently invited her
to come again. My limbs are covered with
decent pants." Mrs. Tillotson's tongue
proved itself so long and so sharp that the
chairman of the committee was r.lad to beat
a retreat, leaving the wearer of the bloomer
costume mistress of the situation.
Nearly every person connected with Spiri
tualism, or at least those who have attended
the camp meeting, liave a peculiar history
Upon the stand the other day was a small
gathering, each member of which has a re
markable story surrounding his or her life,
In the party were Col. Kase and Mrs. Kase.
Dr. T. B. Taylor, P. O. Tomson, Mtdium
Mrs. Mary Dartin and Medium Mrs. Dr.
Rogers, formerly Miss Mary d'Holien, and
Medium James A. Bliss, remained upon the
staud long enough to have Ins ghost show
advertised. The story of each is interest
Col. S. P, Kase is known among his ac
quaintances as the Railroad King, or the
man who can build a railroad without mon
ey. He prides himself upon looking like
Geo. Washington and his spirit friends flat-
terhim by calling him the ''materialized
George." He is u man of splendid physique
aud stands fully six feet four inches in
heiitht. Ills hair Is white. He is about
sixty-five years of age. The town of Dan
villa, up in Montour county, Pennsylvania
is where ho halls from and where he is
best known. He built the Diuvillc and
Haz'etnn Railroad, and through it had his
great difficulty with the Pennsylvania Hall-
road Company. The Danville road was a
failure and some time since it was sold out
He It was who had surveyed und staked out
and chartered the road through the Dela
ware river valley, un the Bushkill aud Mil
ford, tapping the Erie Railroad at Port Jer
vis. It is understood that New Yorkers
have now obtained possession of the pro
posed r.ute. Among his friends Col. Kase
passes as a man possessing wealth estimated
at $000,000, but ns to this matter opinions
diflVr. His house at the northeast corner of
Fifteenth and Oxford streets is held In his
wife's name, and, a couple of farms that
he has in Maryland are nominally his rum's
possessions. Li is first introduction to Spiri
tualism, through an affair made up of a lot
of twaddle about Abraham Lincoln Isruing
the Emancipation Proclamation through
spirit intervention, has frequently been ex
plained in publications. In 17 he mar
ried tbe present Mrs. Kase. Now a word as
to this remarkable lady.
As Col. Kase so he thinks, is tbe exact
impersonation of Geo, Wasbingtion to with
a peculiar fitness does Mrs, Kase imagine
that she is tbe perfect image of Martha
Washington, Wily mediums, after addres
sing the Col. as "Materialized Geo." makes
bis wife's bosom swell by refeilng to her as
"Materialized Martha." If the wife of tbe
Father of his Country weighed something
over two hundred pounds and was nearly as
broad as she was tall, then does Mrs. Kase
possess one point ot similarity. The Col's,
estimable wife does possess a really magnifi
cent head, but it is a masculine head. It Is
so much like a man's head that it renders
Mrs. Kase quito a curiosity. If her husband
Is not at her side one might think tbat she
had borrowed tbat portion of him that tow
ers above his shoulders. Her hair is gray
and very short. She parts it on one side
just liko a man, has a bald spot ntar the
parting point just like a man, aud brushes
it back with her fingers just like a man. Her
first husband met a violent death down In
Texas. After tbat for about twenty-five
year she lived as tho wife of ex-Fire Mar
Bhal Baker, of New York, and as Mrs
Baker she raised a family. Baker had been
married and had separated, but not actually
divorced from his wife. The present Mrs
Kase, when termed Mrs. Baker, developed a
Spiritualistic craze and notorlously-fraudu
lent mediums made her house in New York
their headquarters and received every en
couragement at her hands. She honestly
believed in their truthfulness and honesty.

WASHiNdTON, August 11. Tho town is
all agog over tho reports in circulation con
cerning tho afiair between Senator Conkling
and ex-Senator Spraguo, at tho rcsidcnco of
tho latter at Narragansctt Pier on Saturday,
Washington gossip has for some time rolled
under its tonguo tho sweet morsel of scandal
afforded by tho apparent intimacy between
Senator Conkling and Mrs. Kato Cliaso
Spraguo, wife of cx'Scnator Spraguo of
Rhodo Island. Tho reucontro betweon tho
men at Narragansctt on Saturday lias given
a now impetus to tho talk about tho relations
between Senator Conkling and Mrs.SpraRue,
It is now recollected how tho New York sen
ator exerted himself to havo a bill passed
through congress to get tho taxes on Mrs'
Spraguo's country residence, 'Edgewood,' re
duced : how during tho pendency of the bill
Mrs. Spraguo was in tho habit of meeting
Senator Conkling in his committee room
(that of tho committee on commerce of which
he was then chairman), and how that they
were sometimes closeted in that room witl
bolted doors ; how that Mrs. Spraguo would
sit in the gallery and writo notes to tho sena
tor of the Hyperion curls and how the sena
tor would write replies, which interesting sen
atonal Dy-piay so disconcerted tho reporters
that they actually on several occasions missed
important parts of the proceedings ; how that
Mrs. Spraguo grow strangely pale and well
nigh fainted in the gallery during the violent
feccne between Conkling and Lamar at the
last session, and how after it was over sho
immediately sent a messenger to Conkling,
who at onco wrote her a note ; how Conkling
spent much of his time at Edgewood, and
how tho senator was frequently seen driving
Mrs. Spraguo behind his spanking pair of
horses ; and much uioro of a similar nature,
Tho story that tho difficulty between Conk
ling and Spraguo originated in tho efforts of
the former to prevent tho latter from chas
tising tho German tutor of his (Sprague's)
children finds few believers hero among thoso
who havo been cloo observers of tho social
side of senatorial life. They regard it as
very thin disguise of tho truo 6tate of the
case. Word was received hero to-day ironi
Narragansctt Pier that ox-Senator Spraguo
refuses to bo interviewed, saying, 'it is pure
ly a family matter and tbo public can havo
no possible interest in the affair.'
Tbe Mormons.
The editorial comments of the London
Timet on an American protest against Mor
man emigration, sent by cable, were doubt
less called forth by the circular dispatched
to the governments of Great Britain, Ger
many, Sweden and Denmark from the state
department to the following effect :
That under our statutes bigamy Is a crime
in any of tbe territories of the United
States, and that men or women destined for
Utah go there with the intention and for the
avowed purpose of violating this law; that
by the act of July 1, 1SC2, every person
having a husband or wife living who marries
another, whether married or single, in
territory or other place over which the
United States has exclusive jurisdiction, is
guilty of bigamy, and shall be punished by
a fine of not more than $500 and by impris
onment for a term of not more than five
years. Beference is next made to existing
obligations on the part of tho governments
'of these countries not to allow persons to
depart trom their jurisdiction for the United
otaies who are Known to nave criminal in
tentions, and further explaining that all
who come to this country for the purpose of
affiliating with tho mormon church do so
with tbe avowed intention of becoming
criminals and subjecting themselves to the
penalties of the criminal laws. Therefore
the United States will consider it a friendly
act on the part of tho governments of these
nations if they will also regard the matter
In this light. Attention is called to the
large number of women who are induced to
become emigrants, and who therefore aid
and abet tbe crime of bigamy, aud to the
principles of the mormon chuich, which re
quires a plurality ol wives. uslonists or Lackawanna county
held their convention Wednesday, and nom
inated a decidedly 'mixed' ticket, the effort
being particularly directed toward selecting
candidates who would satisfy tho various
elements of the combination. The princl
pal interest attached to the contest for the
Judgeship, in which Hon. F. D. Collins was
Bucoessful. Much satisfaction Is felt over
the defeat of Stanton. It is already announc
ed tbat tbe latter will now organize a party
ot his own, call convention and have bim
self nominated, or if such a proceeding
should be too tedious, to come out as an In
dependent candidate. Stanton's friends say
that be was defeated by tbe liberal use ot
money j that a large number of delegates
pledged to him, and elected In his Interest
were corrupted by Collins' friends. Stanton
undoubtedly has a considerable following in
Lackawanna county, and It is not certain
tbat he would not poll quite as large a vote
as an independent candidate as Mr. Collins
will as tbe nominee of the Combination or
Fusion party. This campaign, ns it now
stands, oilers a splendid opportunity to Stan
ton to ascertain precisely how papular he
Mr, Collins Is wbat Is popularly called as
a good fellow, but ho has no known fitness
lor the position, as u lawyer. He would If
elected, doubtless do the best he knew how
but that Is not the kind of man the judiciary
demands. Wtlkenbarre lUcord.

Tl the face of everything, Wanamaker & Brown increased
their great Clothing business last year at Oak Hall nearly a quarter
of a million dollars, anil for 1S79 the new plans will make the
house more popular and increase the business much more.
Eighteen years in the people's service at the old corner of Sixth"
and Market has taught us how to do the business well.
Whatever may be said, no house in the United States'seUVany-'
thing hko so much Clothing at Retail as Oak Hall, and no house
in l hiladelphia sells more than a quarter as many poods as
Mr. Wanamaker sells in Clothlnu alone. Doing this large
business shows the people's regard for our goods, and enables us
to buy cheaply and sell at small profits. -
New patterns have been made this year and ncvTstyleT intro?
duced through Mr. Robert C. Ogdcn (formerly partner of the
famous firm of Devlin & Co., New York), who is now associated
with uak Hall, and will give his whole energies and valuable
experience to improving the manufacture of our Hoys' and Men's
Clothing. We do not buy Clothing like the dealers, but make
it expressly for our own sales. The Spring stock is splendid,
and no other make of goods, so far, have as much merit, or are
fold as cheaply. 1
Impressions have been erroneously given to the effect that
