A number of the democratic dis
trict committees in this state have met
and elected delegates to tho S ,ato Con
vention. In nearly every instance they
aro instructed to vote for Samuel J.
Randall for president.

day. The new law will make a radi
cal chango in the Ohio Penitentiary.
Col. A. K. McClure in a despatch to
the Times says : The nomination of
Samuel J. Randall on an accptable
platform would make a desperate con
test in Pennsylvania, and would hold
New Jersey, New folk and Connecti
cut to the party.
Senator Mitchell in an interview
last Saturday evening referring to the
methods used to secure the nomination
of Arthur by tho Republican conven
tion is reported to have said :

From the Wllkesbarre Unlon-Lcader, Dem.
A Il4rrisburg correspondent of the
Philadelphia Times guesses that there
will bo no factious contest at the uem
ocratic State Convention ; that Con
gressman Elliot will be renominated
that the convention will be largely for
Handall ; that a delegation will go to
Chicago for Randall, with Wallace as
one of the members, hut that it will
not be instructed for him, as Randall
himself is committed against what
known as the unit rule by his action in
1870 and again in 1880 : and that the
Ohio platform,, which is made up bodily
from expressions of Jefferson, Jackson
and rolk, is about what will bo tli
view of the convention on tho tariff,
All the signs point with sufficient
plaincss to these probabilities to make
it reasonably certain that each and
every one of them will bo fulfilled
And the great advantage of tho uitua
tion such foreshadowing presents is its
indication of entire peace and harmony
in the ranks of the Democracy ot

said : lilt statement made by tho liar

He was politician enough to know that
it was always beta to get on ttio win

A Vein of Sapphire Corundum Found on a
Professor J. C. Wilson, of Chicago,
ono of the leading geologists iu the
country, has been paying a visit to tho
anthracite coal regions and has spent
some time in examining tho coal for
mations and geological structure of the
region outside the coal field. He was
requested by Mr. Samuel Werb, a well
known fanner, living about twelve
miles from Line Mountain, Northum
berland county, a few miles from Sun
bury, to examine a specimen of miner
al which he had found on his farm.
Mr. Wilson examined it nnd found il
to be a sapphiio corundum. An inves
tigation proved the existence of a !)8
inch vein of sapphire corundum, the
value, of which the professor estimates
at two bundled dollars per ton. The
tract on which the discovery wax made
is barren and sterile and the fanner
had offered tho tract for fnlo at three
hundred dollars, but its value becom
ing apparent by thu juofci'sor's discov
ery he has closed with the agent of u
Boston Block company for u largo sum,
said to be $50,000, The company in
tend developing the vein at once.
This usually quiet section is ablaze
with excitement nud the value of laud
adjoining that on which tho discovery
was made has greatly increased. Some
time ago the daughter of Mr. Werb,
while out berrying, found a largo green
stone, to which she took a fancy nud
preserved. Professor Wilou examin
ed it and found it to bo n fine sapphiio,

in the city and besides its interesting

services there on Sunday evening and

continent. This ijreat roatl extendinc
from tllf Kio Uremic for a distance of
1.200 mllo thmllirli ), nnnlrn ofllm
country to the city of Mexico, connects
with our railroad system so lliat a con
tinuous ride in the cars can be had
from any railroad point in tho United
States to where the halls of the Monte
zuma are supposed to have been locat
ed. Very little attention was given by
the public to this road while it was
being built. It was known that a
great railroad enterptiso was going for
ward in .Mexico in which some capi
talists were interested, and that was
about tho extent of the interest in it.
Its completion came like that of the
Union and Central Pacihu railroads, as
something of a surprise. In the case
of tho railroad across the continent,
which was built when public attention
was occupied to a great extent by the
events immediately following the war,
although there were occasional reports
that the work was going on, tho pub
lic was not fully prepared to hear of
its completion when the announcement
was made that the road was about to
be 0ened for business.
The laying of the last rail of tho
Mexican road was attended with as
much ceremony as was possible at the
time. Two locomotives, one from the
United States and the other from the
city of Mexico, decorated with the
American and Mexican colors, after the

At the time of tho war with Mexico
railroads were scarcely more than
heard of in Mexico as wild schemes
firojected in foreign countries, while
wro they were so limited in extent
that the troops from Pennsylvania, on
their way to the seat of war, were
transposed by canal to Pittsburgh
where they were shipped by steamboats
t0 New Orleans. Nothing marks tbe

When Mahono entered tho Senate
in the doubtful garb of n Rcadjustcr,
who had headed a separate ticket for
Iancoek in 1880, and had professed to
bo a Democrat, he was sharply cate
chised by Mr. Hill of Georgia. Senator
Mill unmasked .Mahone, and left him
in the Republican camp as a
lipendiury of the Administration.
Mr. Hill obtained for a respectable
colored man, who had been in the ser
vico of President Madison toward the
nd of his life, an humble place under
the Sergennt-itt-Arms. The duties of
this place the colored man performed
faithfully and acceptably. When
the Republican civil service reform-
rs in the senate decided to remove
the Democrats who were holding
ffice in that body, Mahone named
Canady of Ncrth Carolina forSergennt-nt-Arms.
That officer has control of
the principal palionnge of the Senate.
One of the first demands made by Ma
hone after C.inady's election was the
dismissal of the colored man who
wed his appointment to the late Sena
tor Hill. This is tho Rcadjusters
revenge for the castigation he received
three years ago. He bided his time
and got his satisfaction.
