On Monday of last week Mr. Charles
Conner In plowing on his farm near Orange
vlllc, turned up what proved to bo a part
of n human skull. Upon further Invcstica-
Hon they found two human skeletons lvlnu
side by side. The manner and location of
their burial, and the general appearance of
their skulls would .Indicate that thoy wero

ino whiles. The fact that thoy were bur.
led near whero onco stood nn old sugar

the additional fact that no traces of a cof.

buried. The father of Jacob Mellck Esq.,
of Liglitstrect, was present at the burial.

On Monday all the Judges being present
a Habeas Corpus was issued to tho Sheriff
to bring beforo them live doctors of Cata
wissa who have been surrendered by their
ball before a magistrate, to answer at court
on a charge of having conspired corruptly
to persecute Dr. Eiskamp for practicing
medicine without being registered. It was
contended by counsel for tho Common
wealth that the fact that the defendant had
joined in the persecution was evidence
that they had maliciously conspired to vex
and harass him. The prisoners wore dis
charged, tho court holding that the joint
prosecution was not evidence of a corrupt
agreement to faintly accuse Dr. Eiskamp
with crime j and also that If to all appear
ances Dr. Eiskamp was practicing, not
being registered, the defendants could not
bo indicted for conspiracy to prosecute
him, because he could make it appear that
his visits to patients of Dr. Bauer were
merely to gather information for Ills prin
cipal or to tako medicine to the patients
prescribed by the latter. The defendants
wero discharged. District Attorney Buck

dire of the Committee on Lunacy. In ono

Tho largest wntcr works In this county,
and ono of tho largest in tlio State, has Just
been completed and put into operation In
tho lower end of tho county, one-half milii
north of Montana. It was built by tho Lo
cust Mountnln Company nnd Is known as
tho Locust Mountnln Water Works. Tho
reservoir Is 250x150 feel, and Is deserving
of much credit to tho contractor ns a fine
plcco of work. Tho water Is pumped
through clghtccn-lnch column pipe from a
dam In Brush Valley by two largo pumps,
which havo proved themselves moro than
equal to their work, having, on their first
trial, given tho water In tho pipes such a
pressure ns to break them, and forco its
way out through tho top of tho ground In
several places. Other and heavier pipes
wero replaced nnd now thb water Is
brought to tho reservoir hi tho pipes' fullest
capacity. Thero aro threo nine-Inch pipes
leading from the reservoir one to Mt. Car
met, a distance ot Ave miles, one to tho
Ccntralla and Logan collieries nnd the
other to tho Continental colliery, each of
tho latter places being tlirco miles distant.
Tlio scarcity of water heretofore felt in tho
Centralla valley during tho Summer months,
and often causing tho collieries to suspend
operation, will bo prevented hereafter by
Uiis new water supply. Tho Mt. Carmcl

Tho nominations made at the Convention

here, and tho nominees will no doubt rc

The Republican County Convention Jwns
held In tlio Opera Houso Monday after
noon. Tho fifty-eight delegates wero pres
ent. Tho chairman, Isaiah Hagcnbucli,
being necessarily absent from the conven
tion, J. C. Brown called tho meeting to
order, and O. T. Wilson of Bloonisburg,
was chosen chairman, with R. S. Bowman
of Berwick, as secretary ; C. 8. W. Fox of
Numidia, and N. II. W. Brown of Mifllin,
were chosen ns tellers. Tho only real con
test was for that of County Commissioner,
for which the Republicans had voted In
structions on Saturday last. Ell Mendcu
hall had so far beaten Joshua Fctterman
that the delegates considered it unneces
sary to report tiic result of last Saturday's
vote, and moved to nominate Mr. Mcndeu
liull by acclamation. There was some ob
jeetion to this motion, and a new one
made, but not seconded, that tho list of
delogatcs be called. At this point Mr. C.
II. Zehndcr of Berwick, stated that ho was
authorized to withdraw the name of Joshua
Fctterman. A motion was then made to
nominate Ell Mendenhall by acclamation,
nud was unanimously agreed to. L. D.

Register and Recorder by acclamation
Rev. D. M. Kintcr of Fishingcreek, Rich-

Tho tellers could not agree on the result of
tho vote nnd the chair ordered another vote
to bo taken, which resulted ns follows :
Klnter 27, Stiles 21, Holmes 0, Eves 4.
Upon motion the names ot Holmes and
Eves were both dropped, and a vote taken
upon tlio remaining two candidates giving
Klnter 20 nnd Stiles ISO. The tellers again
could not agree upon the result, and the
chair ordered another vote. Mr. J. C.
Brown then assistod the tellers, and the
fourth ballot gave each 29. Upon the fifth
ballot Mr. Stiles received 30 votes and was
declared the nominco of tho convention.
L. F. Bower of Berwick, J. B. Yetter of
Catawissa and C. C. Evans were plnred in
nomination for County Auditor. L. F,
Bower received fl, C. C. Evans 11 and J,
B. Yetter 41 votes. Upon motion tho nom
nation of Yetter was made unanimous.
Tho question was raised as to whether
nominations should bo made for Represen

would namo a full ticket or none. Chan-
dloe W. Eves of Greenwood aud Samuel

by acclamation for Representative. Au

Treasurer. W. E. Smith of Berwick, and

uiTOits Columbian i
The smoko of battle having cleared
away I thought I would pen a few lines
for publication in your paper, llio con
test that wo have passed through In this
county has been the most bitter and cruel
that 1 can remember. The defeated par
ty's friends aro violent lu this section. Tho
lieutenants of the Buss feel sore. They
even refuse to go to the store whero tho
stars and stripes aro Moating to tho breeze,
fearing It Is a Snyder Hag. bhame on a
man, or set of men, that has no moro rev
erence for the national ensign, ueuue-
mcn, If there Is ono thing In this country
that I lovo abovo another (my wife ex
cepted) It is tlio stars and stripes. Many
timo have I born it aloft over the hills of
this county to political meetings, and sang
Its praises. Many n timo our party has
sufTvrcd defeat. Did I think less of tho
Star Spangled Banner ? Never, no never.
But with the enthusiasm of a patriot with
renewed courage, with faith in tho princi
ples that I advocated I havo waved it
timo nnd ngaln. When I, gentlemen, re
fuse to walk under the National color, It
will bo when I am too old or crippled to,
walk. This boon then I ask of my friends
that they carry me to a point whero I can
gnzo with admiration upon the proud em
blem ot the "Land ot tho Free and the
Homo of tho Brave." 1 understand there
is n portion of the Ring men that aro rebel
ling against part of the nomination going
bolt the ticket as far as Mr. Snyder Is
concerned. Now let me say to those gen
tlemen, "go slow I" Remember tho old
adage, that "they whom the Gods wish to
destroy, they first make mad." Mr. Sny
der was honestly and fairly nominated. Is
It posslblo that Is the reason they want to
go against the ticket V I nlmost bellcvo It.
The way some people act it looks as If lion-
sty, purity and virtue wero at a discount,
while fraud, dishonesty nud corruption
wero at par. Things have got dreadfully
mixed. Let me say u few words to the
Democratic voters of Columbia county :
Stick to the ticket as nominated j vote for
Snyder, and for the whole County nnd
National tickets, and an overwhelming
Democratic victory In November, I bclicvt
will be ours. You.no Hickory.
