The Battleship Maine Blown up in
Havana harbor.
At 9:4.5 P. M., Tuesday night a ter
| rific explosion took place at the bow !
of the battleship Maine in Havana j
harbor. Two hundred and sixty are j
reported to have lost their lives, of j
| which two are officers and the balance j
: seamen.
Captain Sigsbee, commander of the S
j Maine, reports that twenty-four officers ;
| and sixty-eight men, many of whom \
| are badly injured, have been saved. j
While taking the men from the ,
I wreckage a second explosion took J
place at two o'clock Wednesday morn
The battleship now lies partially
submerged, and Captain Sigsbee be
lieves the major portion of it can be
| The cause of the explosion is a mys
tery and the Administration has de- 1
ciiled to regard the disaster to the
Maine as an accident, until a full re
port is made by Captain Sigsbee.
President McKinley lias decided not j
to send another warship to Havana at
present. The number of killed is 260; !
saved '24 officers, GS men.
Measures have already been adopted i
for a rigid investigation which will be
made by divers.
A Spanish naval officer said that |
Captain Sigsbee was the last man to j
abandon the sinking ship and that he
remained alongside the wreck as long
as it was possible to do anything in
the work of rescue.
Why not buy an overcoat now, when i
you can got it 33j per cent, loss than 1
earlier in the season.

dent Judge and candidates for Congress
and State Senate.
Mr A. C. Blum, an ardent friend of
Hon. Chas. W. Stone, of Warren, our
present able Congressman and prom
inent candidate for Governor, present
ed the following resolution. Capt. C. F.
Barclay was the first to take the floor
and warmly endorsed the candidacy
of Gov. Stone, stating that he believed
this county to be almost unanimously
for his nomination. Remarks were
made by Jno. J. Hinkle, A. C. Blum,
S. (i. McElwain, J. W. Lewisandß L.
i Spenee, when the following preambles
j and resolution were adopted amid ap
! plause :
J WHEREAS, The Republicans of
I Cameron County in County Conven-I
I tion assembled in 1897 were the first I
! to declare in favor of the candidacy of
| our eloquent and popular Congress-
I man, Hon. Chas. W. Stone, of Warren,
I for Governor of this State
WIIKKMAB, By reason of his high 1
; personal character, his eminent ability,
| his efficient and faithful public service
in legislative and executive positions
and his devotion to the principles of
the Republican party, lie unites the ele
ments desirable in a candidate for that
office; and knowing that he would
wisely and conservatively administer
the duties that would devolve upon
him as Governor, therefore be it
Resolved, That we heartily endorse
his candidacy and pledge him our uni
ted support and we earnestly recom
mend his candidacy to the favorable
consideration of the Republican voters
of the State.
Hon. C. W. Stone on State Issues.
Last Monday's issue of the Pittsburg
Dispatch contained portraits of all the
candidates for Governor and brief
views of the several candidates on the
political situation. Our popular Con
gressman, Hon. Chas. W. Stone, of
Warren, states the issues in no uncer
; tain tone. The following is his admir
able letter:
WASHINGTON, Feb. 5, 1898.
To the Editor of the Dispatch
The Republican party has won its
j notable victories when it has agress
j ively championed some great principle.
Its failures have come when it has been
j diverted to collateral or minor issues
i or has allowed itself to be forced into
! a defensive position
Prudence and wisdom will hold the
j issues of this fall's campaign closely to
• the national record and creed of the
: Republican party; but to accomplish
: this, factional discord in the party
1 must be avoided, and no ground be
i left for the people to distrust the sin
j cerity of party professions, or the
personal independence and high pur
-1 poses of party candidates.
They must be satisfied that liepubli
| can success will mean honesty and
1 economy in legislative and executive
action and a due regard for the rights
j and will of the people They are in no
mood to be trifled with. They must
be treated with entire candor and fair
i ness or they are liable to make their
own issues There must be no evasion
; of proper responsibility; no attempt to
mislead; nor to forstail nor to nullify
; the free and honest expression of the
i popular will. The people arc the
: rulers; their officers are their servants.
I There mast be no attempt to reverse
this relation.
The Republican party stands for
! honesty and honor in the conduct of
the .National Government—it must
stand for the same guiding principle
j wherever it is intrusted with power.
| The people propose to give a dollar's
| worth of value for every dollar they
I owe. They expect a dollar's worth of
value for every dollar of their money
expended. They demand not parsi
mony but honesty, and they want
| this not in word but in act, not in
promise but in performance.
This fall's campaign then must be
1 fought under the banner of protection,
, sound money and honest government.
Pleasant Surprise.
Last Friday evening a "stag" sur
prise was given our friend Fred A.
Hill, at his pleasant home on Sixth
street. His good wife and daughter
carefully planned, with the aid of
: friends, to keep Mr. Hill "down town"
I during the major portion of the after
j noon and when the usual hour to re
| turn home came around Henry Auchu
I had to he met at the depot upon the
arrival of Niagara and brought home
to supper. Those were the orders is
sued and Fred obeyed. Of course
when he arrived home he was surprised
to nee a large number of gentlemen
friends comfortably fixed in his parlor
and then Fred "saw what it all meant."
After an exchange of pleasantries
and Fred given time to "see where he
was at," the ladies who had been
diligently at work to make the 42nd
anniversary of their loved one pleasant,
invited the guests to the dining room
where—oh, dear! —was spread one of
the most inviting scenes ye scribe
seldom sees, and that's saying consid
erable for there is no one, unless it be
our sedate friend Blum, who appre
ciates and knows a good dinner better
than ye editor. Seated at the hand
somely decorated table were Messrs.
F. A. Hill, Henry Auchu, Geo. J. La-
Bar, B. W. Green, A. C. Blum, G. F.
Buleom, Thos. Gallagher, M. P. Whit
ing, I. K. Hockley, J. D. Logan, Josiah
Howard, H. H. Mullin, Chas. Seger
and H. S. Lloyd. The elegant dinner,
while a compliment to the ability of
Mrs. H. and daughter, was certainly
highly enjoyed by the guests of the
evening. After the inner man had
been bountifully supplied the guests
repaired to the parlor and by the aid
of good cigars succeeded in regaining
their former composure. After a time,
Mr. B W. Green,"in a few brief re
marks," addressed Mr Hill on behalf
of his friends assembled and presented
him, with the well wishes of those
present, a beautiful painting. In ac
cepting, Mr. Hill thanked his friends
for their kindness to himself and
family. At a seasonable hour all de
parted for their homes to dream of
turki y and—well, you have been there
know the natural result.
Jealousy's Promptings.
As a result of the shooting of Miss
| Mary Vannerman by her uncle-lover,
at Hornellsville, N. Y., the residents of
that town are greatly excited. Smith,
who is a well-known railroad man, has
been paying marked attention to his
neice, Miss Mary Vannerman, a pretty
I and talented young lass of 18 years.
I Being madly in love and also very
I jealous of her, it enraged him to have
her receive attention from other men.
Especially was this so regarding the
young men of the place. He was con
siderably older than the girl, and it
j was probably the fear of being sup
planted by some one nearer her own
age that aroused his wrath. Smith
chanc 1 to see his neice walking down
the street with a young male acquaint
ance, and this so enraged him that he
\ procured a revolver and shot her. He
then turned the gun on himself and
sent a bullet crashing through his
I neck.
The girl is probably fatally injured,
| and the Coroner has decided to take
j her ante-mortem statement.
Smith is not seriously hurt. He
j states that he and his neice were en
| gaged to be married, and he admits
; that jealousy prompted him to commit
; the deed Daniel Smith, named above,
j is a brother of Thos. Smith, of this
place who was called to Hornellsville
| last Monday, by a telegram informing
him of the shooting.
Killed at a Log Slide.
Alexander Humes, of Dents Run,
j was killed at S D. Billing's log job on
Johnson's Run Saturday afternoon.
Humes, together with several other
; woodsmen, was rolling logs off a side
hill. He started a log down the hill
■ side but fell while trying to get out of
the way and tho log rolled over him.
He made an effort to rise when a
second log struck him on the head,
, fracturing his skull and killing him
instantly. His body was taken to his
home at Dent's Run, where interment
was made. He leaves a large family,
the mother of which is just recovering
from a long and serious illness.—

A Progressive Newspaper.
The Times has a larger circulation
J by many thousands than any other
daily newspaper published in Pitts
| burg. This is admitted even by its
! competitors. The reason for it are not
hard to find. The Times is a tireless
j newsgatherer, it is edited with ex
j treme care, spares no expense to en
j tertain and inform its readers. It
; prints all the news in compact shape,
i caring always more for quality than
i quantity. It keeps its columns clean,
, | but at the same time bright. Nothing
that is of human interest is overlook
|ed by it. It aims to be reliable rather
| than sensational. It believes in the gos
| pel of get there, but it gets there with
I due respect for facts. Test any depart
j ment of it you choose—religious, mar
kets, sporting, editorial, society, near
! town news—and you'll find the Times
may be depended upon. §3.00 a year,
