For Governor, 1898,
CHARLES W. STONE, of Warren.
Subject to the decision of the Republican
State Convention.]
Representative North, of Mc-
Kcan county, is getting ready to
take Congressman CI las. W. Stone's
place in Washington, when Mr.
Stone has been elected Governor.
The Hon. Thomas V. Cooper
having denied that he sent any
despatch to Senator Quay such as
has been printed in the newspapers,
should now hunt out the fabriertor
of the message and hold him to
scorn. If he will do that he will
deserve to be Governor.
Gold continues to pour into the
Treasury of the United States.
The amount now on hand reaches
in round numbers $170,000,0(10,
with the prospect of a steady in
crease. while the gold in circula
tion has increased with even great
er rapidity during the past year.
February receipts at the Treas
ury Department have averaged over
a million dollars a day under the
new revenue law, thus fullilling
the pledges made by its trainers of
producing suflicient money to meet
the running expenses of the Gov
ernment, which average only a
million dollars a day, taking one
month with another, the year a
Chairman Jones and his politi
cal associates who still call them
selves Democrats seem to have ab
solutely forgotten the chief feature
of Democratic faith, the "tariff for
revenue only." In their recent
communications to the public their
views as to the subjects for discus
sion in (he coining campaign, they
made no allusion whatever to the
tariff, the one subject which has
been the battle-cry of the Demo
crats for generations.
One per cent, a week is a pretty
rapid fluctuation for a money me
tal. That is about the rate, how
ever, at which silver has deprecia
ted in the last eight weeks or so.
Silver bullion was quoted in the
New York markets early in
December at (>()..'{ cents per ounce,
and and by February 1 it had
fallen to 55.T0 cents, with a pros
pect of going still lower. The
New York World market report
quotes it as follows: ''Weak at
55.75.'' This must be rather dis
couraging to the people who pro
pose to make the use of silver as a
money metal the sole basis of their
claim for support in the coming
Congressional campaign.
The answer of Senator Kauffman
lias taken all the wind out of the
resolution of the Lancaster County
Committee requiring candidates to
pledge themselves to abide by the
result of the Republican State Con
vention. Senator Kauffman de
clares that lie cheerfully subscribes
to the resolution. It was ridicu
lous to have supposed that he
would do anything else, lie isa
candidate seeking the Republican
nomination for Senator in the dis
trict which he has so well repre
sented for four years, and lie has
not been taught in that school of
political morals which would en
able him to do what one faction of
the party in this city has been ac
customed to. The Lancaster Re
publicans will, of course, enter a
protest against any of the Philadel
phia bolters sitting in the State
convention. —Philadelphia Press.

Republican, who enters a conven
tion as a candidate for a nomina
tion, is honorably bound to sup

Another large cotton mill in
New England lias, through (he
action of its board of directors,
taken steps looking to a transfer of
its works to the South, where the
conditions are more favorable in
i the matter of fuel, wages, proximity
to cotton fields, power, taxes and
labor. The advantages which the
) South presents in these particulars
and which are now recognized as
the real cause of the reduction in
wages in the New England mills
are such that the cotton mills of
that section, which numbered L s <>
in ISNO, have now increased to 5 ( .Mt;
the number of looms, which in
Is,so was 14,000, has increased to
I 115,000; the number of spindles,
which in INNO was <>(>7,ooo, lias
I increased to 4,100,000, and (he
capital employed from $'21,000,000
to $1*25.000,000. These facts an
swer completely the gibes of the
low-tariff men regarding the neces
i sitfor reduction of wages in the
j New England Mills since the adop
-1 tion of the new tariff law.

Eld. t. N. Williams, of Corydon, the
| president of the Pennsylvania confer
; ence of Seventh Day Adventists
i preached in the Sweesey school house
last Wednesday and Thursday even
| ings. Wednesday evening he preached
| from Luke, 19, 10. "For the son of
( man is come to seek and to save that
j which was lost." He showed from
the bible that when man was
| created he was pronounced by his
! Creator "very good," that he also had
j dominion over all the earth, but
j through disobedience he lost his holy
| character, his dominion and his life.
! Christ was to restore all that was lost
and what he has undertaken to do he
will surely accomplish and the earth
will be restored to its Eden beauty.
Thursday evening he preached on
the signs of the times and proved con
clusively both by the scriptures and
| by what is transpiring all around us,
j that we are living in the last days.
I People are crying "peace and safety,"
bet they are preparing for war. They
are heaping up treasures and the poor
are getting poorer, which is also a
sign of the last days. See James 5, 1-8.
Oh! let us see to it that we are pre
pared so that when He comes we can
say: "So this is our Lord; we have
waited for him, we will be glad and re
joice in his salvation. Isa. 25; 9.

says Bordeau mixture would have
saved the fruit. I think it would have
taken more than his "mixture" to save
the fruit after the three successive
frosts in the middle of June, and as for
the early planting of potatoes we all
know there is as many failures as there
are in late planting. DING.
