party composed of H. W. Jewell, D. E. Powell,
David Munoe, Frank Packquette, John I-'redette,
Chas. Keiper, of Emporium, and Elijah Johnson,

rium last Monday, shaking hands with our peo
ple. He is a candidate lor Congress in case
our present worthy Congressman should be
nominated for Governor, and the indications
are daily growing brighter. Mr. North would
make a very acceptable candidate. He is emi
nentily qualified for the place and would make
a popular Congressman.
Three From Potter.
Cameron county voted down the
poor house proposition by a big majority. And
she made a mistake.
Bessie Kissell, of Sterling Run, who has been
spending a few days with friends here, returned
home Tuesday.
M.M. Larrabee was re-elected Justice of the
j Peace of Emporium with no opposition—a just
| tribute to a worthy man.
Mrs. Hoffman who is to speak in Em
i porium on the evening of March 19th, in the M.
E. church is highly recommended by both the
press and individuals. Like most first-class
I speakers she has her regular price but an unusual
exception has been made in favor of Emporium,
and her lecture here will be free, but a collection
; will be taken. The following is from the Clarks
[ ville, (Mo.) Sentinel:
Mrs. Hodman is a woman whose witticisms
will make you laugh ; whose close analytical ar
gument will make you think, and whose sincer
] ity and honesty, whatever your opinion of her
cause, will command your respect and esteem,
j Her effort here was a masterpiece.
To the Public.
Realizing t hat there are a great many
j people who would like to have photographs of
themselves or their families, but owing to the< x
! treme hard times, really have not the money to
j pay for my best work, and the cheap work they
j don't want. Appreciating this fact, that my
j customers know good work when they see it,
; and will have only the best when they do get it,
! I have concluded to reduce my prices to suit the
; times and within the reach of all. Beginning
i March Ist, I will make my best Cabinet Photo
j graphs at J3.00 per dozen. Thanking you for
I past favors and hoping to receive a liberal pa-
J tronage in the future.
I am very truly,
School Entertainment.
! The teachers and pupils of the High
School building gave a very enjoyable entertain
ment to the patrons and friends of the public
schools and the only regret expressed was that
the building was not large enough to accommo
date all who wanted to come. As it was more
than five hundred people were present and the
entire program was carried out without a
"break." The music both vocal and instru
! mental, was a pleasing part of the program and
| the systematic course of study in music adopted
j by the Board three years ago was certainly a
I step in the right direction if we may judge from
the manner pupils acquitted themselves in the
musical selections. We have not time to elaborate
much in detail, suffice it to s*y that the orderly
conduct of the pupils both old and yonng during
the exercises was a subject of very favorable
comment on the part of many patrons.
Miss HATTIE ERHARD, aged twelve |
years, died at the residence of her parents at j
Erie, Pa., on Sunday. The remains were brought '
to Emporiun 011 Monday, the funeral taking I
place on Tuesday, at 2 p. in., from the home of 1
| Mrs. Erhard's sister, Mrs. W. S. Walker- Rev. j
| Robert McCaslin officiating. The former friends j
j of the grief-stricken family (who formerly re- j
! sided in Emporium) wore pained beyond ex- ■
] pression to hear of the sad death of one so young 1
j and beloved as was the deceased child—the idol j
j of all who knew her. Only a few weeks ago the !
writer noticed the happy child in our midst and j
I admired the cherry disposition, little thinking I
i that we should so soon be called upon to chroni- j
I cle her death.
I This greatly bereaved family have indeed been j
j terribly afflicted during the past year. Mrs. Er- i
j hard (formerly Miss Laura Hackenbergi who has '
been called upon to follow to the silent city of i
I the dead,a sainted mother, a dear sister and nort
her only daughter has been called home. Words
cannot express our sympathy for."Jr. and Mrs.
! Erhard.
Kaye-Briggs Affair Settled.
The case of H. C. Kaye vs C. E.
Briggs, General Manager of The Ivlondyke Pros-
I pecting Mining Co., of Coudersport, which has
| been the subject of much discussion and com
i ment during the pest week, was settled in a very
I amicable manner on Monday last. The Company
j refunded the money which Mr. Kaye had de
t posited with them inpayment for stock, and paid
all costs.
Two More Mails.
The new mail service for which Post
: master Seger has been zealously laboring, went
I intoefrect last Monday morning. Train No. 9, at
j 5:10 a.m., carries a local pouch from all points
j west of Williamsport, and train No. 6, at 3:25 p.
I in., carries a local mail. Our people are greatly
benefitted by the change, as well as ah towns on
the line.

Volume Thirty-Three.
With this issue the PRESS starts upon its thirty
third year. During all these years the PRESS has
adhered steadfastly to the principles of right and
justice. We have always endeavored to give
our readers a news paper and how well we suc
ceeded will leave to our readers. The PRESS has
never faltered in its duty to the county or its
fealty to its party or its candidates. We hope
and expect to make many improvements in the
near future and shall spare neither labor nor

To our business men and patrons in general
we thank for their continued patronage and
extend to one and all our sincere thanks for their
confidence and encouragement.
There are a few families in Cameron county
into whose homes the PRESS has thus far failed
to reach. We should like to have upon our sub
scription list, every home in this county. Send

to set up their fences for county offices, and hand
shaking has commenced. Be honest and do not
promise to support a candidate unless you fully
I intend to keep sacred your pledge.
If you find it difficult to pass through
Harry Lloyd's store it is all because he has just
received a large number of 1893 wheels and if
you don't have wheels in your head before he
gets through with you it will not be his fault.
L. Taggart's new drug clerk is the
right man in the right place. A competent clerk
and reduced prices will be appreciated by our
people. See prices of prescription work, etc., in

Wm. M. Singerly, editor of the Phil
adelphia Record, died suddenly at Philadelphia
on Sunday, of heart failure. Mr. Singerly was
one of the foremost editors of the State and held
a high position in the councils of his party. The
first position held by Mr. Singerly, was in 1864, at
Cameron mines, in this county, where be filled
the position of book-keeper. Many of our older
citizens remember the incident. J
The teuderest pathos the HOUI con
tains, the silken cords of love, engen
dered by the thoughts of home and
What is a home? The enshrined
throne of peace and love, where the
weary spirit of man can at all times
find a haven of rest. Never since
man was driven from Eden has truer
| words been inscribed by a pen: "Be it
ever so humble, there's no place like
home." If the lirst law of nature is
self-preservation, why is not patriot
ism the second.
True manhood will leave all, will
even lay down life itself in behalf of
home and country. Why is this done?
Is it to gain honor and fame, or is it a
wontoness in human nature; a desire
at the first opportunity to shed human
blood ?
Nay, patriotism is only in reality an
advanced stage of the first law of
nature, self-preservation. It has long
been a confirmed fact man is a
social animal. In the history of by
gone ages we find, in all race's of peo
ple, be they black, white, yellow or
copper, they have always banded to
grther; all have recognized, "in unity
there is strength." Mutual safety,
therefore, calls together high, low,
rijh and poor, and a leader is chosen.
Sometimes the leader has been given
absolute power; but that decade, we
are thankful to say, is slowly passing
away. The majority of governments
to-day consists of a leader with two
houses of executive representatives of
the people. Kingdoms and Empires
are thus formed. A constitution is
framed, laws laid down, and a govern
ment established. The land wherein
they thus form, the people call "our
country." They individually have
sworn to obey the constitution and
laws of the country; to guard, uphold
ai.d defend the country, even to death
itself. They thus have become each
o»e link of the great chain that binds
man toman, man to home, and home
to country. The name of that chain is
Patriotism. The sweetest memories of
manhood's years or declining age, are
the lithographic views engraved in the
art gallery of the brain by the eye of
budding youth. The sapling may be
bent at pleasure, but the sturdy,
mature oak can withstand the blast of
a hurricane. A great deal depends on
the surroundings of the youthful sap
ling as to the beauty, strength and
value of the tree, or whether it shall
become a tree. Should the ground be
rocky, bleak and sterile, the tree shall
be knotty, gnarled and almost worth
iese. Good soil and favorable circum
stances will grant to the tree a far
different birthright. He shall rise a
monument of strength, a gem of nature,
a perfect gift from the hand of its
maker. Thus with man, though down
trodden from the cradle, the youthful
mind is more susceptible to the .joys
than the sorrows of life. Great and
wonderful indeed is the superstruction
011 which is based the life of the uni
verse. Frolic and fun is the natural
gift of youth from the Supreme Giver
of all gifts. To prove this, look over
| the picture gallery of your own mem
ory. You will be surprised to find
how many sunshiny spots the camera
of the eye has engraved there. No
water was ever so sweet as the spring
that came bubbling from beneath the
rock under the elm tree, at old home
stead. No apples were half so sweet
as the rosy-cheeked fellows that grew
on the little tree at the corner of the
orchard, 110 sky so blue, no mountain
so fair, no meadows so green; the
birds, the bees, the butterfles we have
chased; the flowers we have plucked,
all comes rushing back to us in a flood
of recollections, bearing us almost
bodily back to the old home-nest A
man may forsake all, and in a moment
of fury curse all, and become a wan
derer to either or all points of the
compass. Anger may part him from
his grey-liaired father, may part him
from the mother who bore him, but
what can turn him against the sunny
spots of his native hearth. Patriotism
is the father of liberty. The stronger
the patriot the greater the liberty. In
this great nation, which ranks among
the foremost of the world, we do not,
we cannot realize our indebtedness to
the patriot. He stopped his plow in
the middle of the furrow, slung his
musket over his shoulder and started
at the call "to arms," to drive the op-
I pressor from our shores. The patriot
J will not, cannot be a slave. The
| morality of a nation depends largely
I upon the patriotism of its citizens.
| "God made all nature free " Freedom
j of conscience is the glory crown of the
J patriot. Where ought we to look for
j a higher sphere of morality; where
I shall we look for a higher standard of
j patriotism, than in this great, glorious
! and most noble of Democracies 011 the
' face of the globe. As a people, we are
| a family, with half a continent for a
I home. Though of all nations, all
! colors, all creeds, we are still one peo
! pie. We are governed by the same
j laws, have all the same freedom and
j independence. The constitution and
j laws of the Democracy place all men
l on a level. High, low, rich and poor,
! young and old, all form a unit of this
i great household.
What interest in common have we
jto hold this household together? Is it
I a love for our neighbor: do we strive
for the advancement of those whom
we have never seen, or having seen,
! may have only done us a personal
| injury? No, not even a brotherly
love, would hold this nation, as a
family. Love of home, love of country,
j patriotism alone can bear us through
j the various vicissitudes, turmoils and
trials of human life. Sow the seeds of
patriotism, remembering that the boy
of to-day will be the man of to-morrow.
The true patriot can never be aught
! than a good citizen. True to himself,
| true to his home, true to his country,
! and true to his God. Long live Col
j umbia! Long live her patriotic sons
and daughters. JAMES CASSELS.

I MR. EDITOR : —Kindly allow me a
! little space in order that I may reply
' to "Rip,J' and also set myself in the
- proper light before the reading public.
! In the first place allow me to say that
i my article in the Letterman case was
written at the request and earnest so
licitation of several of the most promi
nent citizens of Cameron county. At
' first I hesitated, but after much
' thought on the subject I finally decid
ed, out of charity and for the sake of
i argument, to take the side of Letter
In doing tliisl based my article on two
or three facts which seemed to me to
strengthen, to some degree, the side
of the defendent. These facts came
from what I regarded a reliable source
and I took for granted that these facts
could be substantiated and in a kind,
gentle way, I proceeded. The facts to
which I have just referred were as fol
First—That Mr. Lettermen was un
der the impression that his former wife
had, during his abscence from State
College, succeeded in having their
former marriage contract annulled.
Second—That Mr. Lettermen was
honest in his intentions, truthful in
his statements, and urged upon Miss
Fulton to write to different persons,
whose names she possessed,and satisfy
her mind beyond any doubt that he
was telling her the truth.
Lastly that after the duplicity was
discovered Miss Fulton begged of her
friends to "fix up the matter and bring
about a reconciliation with all parties
concerned." Now, I ask our many
readers, in all candor, whether the
above facts are not worthy of some
consideration. I love the entire Fulton
family, as far as I know them, and
would almost as soon lose an arm as to
say a word that would bring a pang to
the already smitten hearts. Neither
do I crave notority. I simply took the
side I did because I thought some one
at least ought to have a little mercy on
the accused. But my effort is perhaps
all in vain. I have learned in the last
twenty-four hours that "Rip" is the
nearest to the truth, so I will have to
retract what I said last week. I have
not one word to say in Mr. Letter
men's favor. If he has done all that
"Rip" claims—laid that deep, dark
plot—and by lying and a cunning
strategy and blight the prospects of an
innocent girl forever, then he is a
villian most vile, or a consummate
fool. lam inclined to cling to the
latter. Surely no sane man would do
as he has done, with everything
against him. No, 1 cannot undertake
to defend Mr. Lettermen, at this time,
any more than I could defend Judas
Iscariot or old lascivious Felix. We
will leave the accused in the hands of
the Court and his God. But be
fore I close I have few words for you
Mr. Rip or llereules. This is not the
first time you have leveled your shafts
at me. You have rushed at me like a
mad bull and your impetuosity leads
me to believe that you desired to tear
out my heart and dig up my father's
grave. No, Mr. Rip there is no skele
ton in our closet. I wonder if you
are not measuring me with your own
yard stick. Neither has society cast
me off'. If it has then it is news to me.
Of late years we have entertained
many prominent people, and some of
the elite of Cameron county have sat
at our table and enjoyed our hospi
tality. And I fully believe dear Rip
that I have as many friends in this
county as you have. I have enemies
too, but it is a good thing to have
enemies—enmity is sometimes better
than friendship. I think you too are
an enemy of mine. I remember the
last time I shook you hand, it felt a
good deal like the paw of a polar bear.
And now Mr. Rip were you ever at
my home? You ought to comedown
and see how we live. I have the
sweetest wife and the most charming
daughters on earth. And we are so
happy and enjoy each others unbound
ed confidence, and we swim, as it were
in a river of domestic felicity. We
have no family fears, no cloudy skies,
nothing but joyous sunshine. Come
down sometime, when convenient, and
drop in and try our rambos. Plenty
of them in our cheaply constructed
cave. Make yourself at home. Have
j another rambo ? If yon desire a few
| more hints in this case I refer you to
| the Independent.
John J. McAdam.
The funeral of John J. McAdani, a
popular young man of the South End, took place
last Wednesday morning from his late residence,
i 51 Rensselaer street, thence to St. John's church,
j where a solemn requiem mass was chanted by
j the Rev. J. H. McAdam—a brother of the deceas
ed. Rev. John T. Slattery delivered the eulogy.
The remains were enclosed in a steel grey casket
with silver trimmings. Deceased had been a
faithful employe of the Albany Brewing Co., for
| the past twenty years. Through respect for the

its employes to attend the funeral in a body. He

district, including Cameron, Elk and
Clinton counties, was in Port Allegany
Monday. Mr. Johnson is well and
favorably known in these parts, and
has many friends who wish him suc
cess in his efforts. A brief sketch of
the man may not be uninteresting to
his friends and acquaintances. Mr.
Johnson, who was captain of Company
K, Pennsylvania Buektails, did signal
service during the lato rebellion, win
ning in the south fame and glory upon
many a battlefield. At the close of the
war he returned to Coudersport and
resumed his study of law in the office
of Mr. Knox, where he remained until
his examination in Potter county, and,
having also graduated from the Ann
Arbor Law School, after being admit
ted to the bar, he removed to Empori
um and opened an office at which
place he has received a large and
and lucrative practice in both civil and
criminal departments of jurisprudence.
Mr. Johnson is a genial, pleasant gent
leman, of a kindly and charitable dis
position, a man who has interested
himself actively in every enterprise
having for its object the "growth and
development of Emporium. Perhaps
no lawyer is better known to the people
of the district than this prominent
citizen of Emporium. We are disin
inclined to agree with the Miner in
reference made to Captain Johnson's
success in his judicial aspirations,
owing to the fact, "he is a good Repub
can." We think the office is above
partizanship and we wish Mr. Johnson
success because he is in every respect
worthy of the honor and is well quali
fied to discharge the arduous duties of
the bench creditably to himself and
: with distinction to the district.—Port
