Re.uino, July 8. Tho farmers in
this section now havo a startling theory
for tho spread of tho Hessian ily and
tho wheat worm in their grain. At
the last session of tho Legislature an
act was passed erapoweriuu persons to
destroy tho English sparrows. These
birds are being slaughtered by tho
wholesale, and tho farmers say that
the Hies and woims increaso just in
proportion as tho sparrows are killed
Tho latter' they say, formerly destroy
od the insects, but now tho bugs havo
full play among tho wheat.
The Wild Woman in Bingtown Woods,
Shenandoah, July 8. Later dovel
opments lead to tho belief that the
wild woman in tho Riugtown woods,
who chasod several lads a few days
ago, is tho missing Mrs. Uonsler, of ot.
Clair. Her friends scoured tho woods
this afternoon in search of her, but
failed to capture her. It is bclioved
that she has taken refuge .in some of
the mine caverns betweon here and
Ringtown. A strict watch will be
kept lor her reappearance. Mrs. Geo
sicr, about threo weeks ago, took scv
oral children walking in a wood. She
disappeared at tho time, leaving the
children in the thicket, and uas not
been heard of since unless tho wild
woman is she. She was, apparently,
perfectly sane when alio started out
with the children.
Poker in Texas-
Private "Jim" Wintcrsmith, catidi
date for doorkeeper of the House, tells
ot a gamo ot poker ho once saw
a Texas town, where the players put
the cuspidor in the middlo of the table
lor fear tho cards would bo "put up'
on them it they turned their heads
spit. "Sometimes," he continued warm
ing up to his work, "when there are
no cuspidors tho players aro obliged to
expectorate down their vests. They
play under umbrellas bo that nobody
can look down through peep-holes
in the ceiling and give their hands
away. When one player announces
that ho has four kiugs aud another
player as.ks what his high is no further
inquiries aro made. It is taken for
granted that thcro are eight kings out,
and the ranking side card takes tho
liovernor 1'attison hied six mor
vetoes in the office of the secretary of
the stato last l riday, all ot them np

Tho veto of tho numerous items m
tho general appropriation bill meets
with general approval. Even Col
McClure, who has been sharply critici
sing I'attison, speaks of it thus, in the
"Governor Pattison swung his veto

tho folly of spending 1,900 for lilting

he has any. Tho fellows who havo

another presidential election, nor to Im
press upon him tho tact mat mu demo
cracy can win that eliction only by'
thorough and completo harmony in
their rank. Tho Republican leaders
fully understand tho Iniportnnco of a,
united party and thoy are striving with
light and main to ncuure it, now. i ncy
lo not propose to tint off tho work of
reconciliation until next year or until
tho hour when tho battlo opens. Tho
old Latin proverb has it that it is law
ful to bo (aught by tho enemy and tho
forethought nnd prudencoof tho repub
lican loaders may well bo emulated by
democrats who aro ready to prodtlco
dissensions now with tho expectation
of harmonizing next year tha cotilllct-
ing elements thoy mc nt present pre
pared to engender.
Tho democratic party was in an ac
tual majority of tho voters of the conn
try in 1870. Divided counsels in snmo
of tho states, notably Now York, dur
ing tho period intervening between tho
(residential olections of 187(1 and 1880
ost the party tho vantage-ground it
had attained m 1875 nnd held for two
years thcrcaf or. Tho division in tho
stato of Now York in 1879 which re
sulted in tho defeat of Governor Rob
inson unquestionably had a strong ef
fect on tho vote in 1880. Tho breach
could not bo effectually healed in a
single year. That lesson should not
bo lost upon those democrats who seem
to bo disposed to stir up strifo in tho
larty now. Let them remember mat
ut for the personal wrangle in Now
York which gave tho electorial voto of
that stnto to tho republicans, nancocK
would be president to-day. Do they
propose to repeat the experiment of
1879 1 1f so they may as well make up
their minds that the result of 1880 will
bo repealed also.
Tho elections ot last tall were tho
skirmish lino of the presidential brittle.
They were carried by tho democrats.
The approaching fall elections will bo
either a torward movement, or a re
pulse of the visitors of last fall. If
thov shall prove the latter the advan
tago gained at the last election will bo
lost and tho ground will have to bo
fought over again- If tho former tho
prestige of tho victorious democracy
will bo such that the battlo of 1881
will bo easily won. It is needed, then,
that democrats should bo warned
against tho petty bickerings auddissen
sions which havo never had and can
nover havo any other effect than the
distruction of the party morale and the
consequent defeat of the party ticket ?
Let us bo wiso in time 1 Let us forget

A Republican dry for Tree Trade.
From the Chicago Tribune (Hop.)
Before long the American farmers
and, planters will insist on tho right to
buy as well as to sell in tho market that
is most prolitablo to them. They now
have the right to export their surplus
cotton, grain and meat to any country
without paying an export lax thereon.
One of these days they will insist on
importing the goods taken in exchange
for these surpluses of fibre and food
without paying an import tax on such
goods. They will wako up some fino
morning aud propound the question to
their Congressmen why they should bo
taxed -10 to 100 per cent on their im
ports any moro than on their exports.
When they ship their farm products to
foreign countries it is for the purpose
of exchanging them for goods which
they need. If they bhip and sell o00
millions ot their crops to other nations
'(tho homo market being unable to take
tho products) why should tho larmers
and planters not be permitted to bring
homo all the goods they receive in ex
chango for such surplus products f
Why aro they taxed 200 millions of
dollars before they aro permitted to
land their goods at New ork or other
American ports '? If tho homo market
had bought all their crops they would
not need to havo shipped any surplus
abroad, but could have exchanged all
their products with tho American towns
people for their manufacturers. But,
as the townspeople cannot buy and use
all their crops, aud they arc obliged to
seek foreign markets for the portions
which tho homo market is unable to
take, we ask again, why should tho til
lers of tho soil bo forcrd to pay an
enormous tax on the iminilcd goods
which they havo received in exchange
for such products of tho farm as the
homo market refused .' Now, this is
really the gist of the question involved
in tho free trade and protection ques
tion, asido from all sophistry or parti
sanship, and if tho farmers wcro uot
carefully and systematically deceived
and stuffed they would seo it, and act
at onco in tho direction of their inter
ests i but the wool has been completely
pulled over their eyes, and thoy go on
paying two prices, like a lot of simple
tons, for their imported goods.

First We tinu itali ti.-iu nimrotr
nnd - demand the continuance of that
system of protection to, home industry

basis of populalioii. to ruliovu them
from tho burdens of local taxation and
provide ample means for tliq education
of their people.
Hum I hat as tho depreciated
trade dollar is largely in the hands of
our laboring people and is a disturbing
leincnt in tho business ol tjiq country,
vo declare it to bo tho duty of con
gress to adopt such legislation as will
insure its full ledcinptton und conver
sion into other coin for circulation
Fourth That wo protect against
tho practice of foreign governments in
aiding or enforcing tho ('migration of
their pauper anil criminal classes to
this country, and we call upon the gen
eral government to take proper steps
to prevent the same.
tiiev am. i.iki: Aunit it this yi:au.
Fifth The republicans of Pennsyl
vania most heartily endoiso tho wise
and conservative administration of
President Arthur, and believe that his
administrative policy has under the
circumstances dono much to secure tho
present happy and prosperous condi
tion of tho couutry, and thus-wo recog
nize in him a faithful and' worthy suc
cessor to our lamented martyr, Presi
dent James A. Garfield.
Sixth Wo heartily approve of the
provision made by republicans in con
gress for giving the patriotic soldiers
of tho lato war a preference nccord
ing to qualifications for posit'10113
under the government ; the sol
diers and sailors, their widows and or
phans havo a first claim on the care,
protection aud gratitude or the Amen
Seventh Wo commend every effort
to inaiigurnto thorough and correct
civil service reform in all tho depart
ments of tho national and state admin
Eighth Wo require that all offices
bestowed within the party shall bo upon
tho solo basis ot htness. mat compe
tent aud faithful officers shall not bo
removed except for causo ; and that
the ascertained popular will Hhall be
faithfully cariied out by those holding
olhce by tholavor ot tho party.
Ninth That the. republican party is
unequivocally committed to an ecotio
micnl administration of tho affairs of
tho commonwealth ; the abolition of all
taxes not actually required for tho nec
essities of tho stato government. That
all laws to prevent frud and waste
should bo rigidly enforced and a watch
ful care given to tha multifaiious inter
csts ontrusted lo the executive depart'
ment of tho government.

Tenth That the republican paity of
j. uiuinriviiiiiii uereuy piouges hsuii m
secure tho passage of such legislation
as will tend to its reform of the govern
i i :.. i t... .
ment of the stato and its municiuali-
ties, and more particularly pledges itself
to provide tor cities such relorm char
ters as will correct existing abuses and
promote wiso and economical govern
Eleventh That the democratic party
in tho legislature of Pennsylvania is re
sponsible for retarding tho ligitimato
and necessary business of tho legisla-
tare, causing tho calling of nn extra
session, at an expense ol moro than
$200,000, and preventing a fair and
just apportionment of tho stato into
congressional, legislative and judicial
districts, and we heieby heartily com
mend the action of tho republican sen
ate on tlieso tneasiiies.
Wiii:ui:as, It is the sense of this
convention that tho freest and fullest
expression of republican sentiment
should be encouraged and sought in the
primary meetings, which aro tho fount
ain of party action and tho sourco of
popular rule, and that tho object will
bo promoted by holding tho primaries
for tho election of delegates to stale
conventions throughout tho state, as
far as practicable, on sonic convenient
day not leiuoto from the convention j
Jlesolced, That tho stato committee
bo instructed to inquire into tho ex
pediency of fixing a uniform day
day throughout tlm stato for tho hold
ing of primaries for tho election of del
egates to the stato conventions.
