There is local interest in the report in railroad circles that the Pennsyl vania Railroad is negotiating to pur chase the W. N. Y. & P. The Penn sylvania, as is well-known, connects with W. N. Y. & P. at Emporium. The Pennsylvania is very anxious to get into Buffalo, and by the purchase of the W. N. Y. & P. this end would be accomplished. It is said that the directors and officers of the Pennsyl vania favor the scheme. The Buffalo Commercial says that "enough has leaked out through semi-official sources to warrant the statement that the Pennsylvania has or will make a deal." ; The Western New York & Pennsyl- I vania would be a most valuable link in the vast chain. The absorption of the! Western New York & Pennsylvania by the larger company would undoubtedly take the present car shops away from Olean in the end.—Olean Times. They Were After Free Silver. I .ike carrion crows, the vultures who were after Mr. Sibley's cash were hanging around his hotel yesterday as long as he remained in town. A con spicuous one was from Bradford, a man who represents the Jamestown Vart Land. It is possible some of the Swedes in McKean county will be caught through this man's sale, but not an intelligent one will. He has not only sold the Swede paper he represents, but he is trying to sell the tried and true Swede Republicans. Will he succeed ?—Kane Republican. No indeed, Brother Rogers, the Swed ish-American Republicans of the '27 th district are too intelligent and well read, and have too much principle to sell their ballot for a littleof "Honest Joe's" filthy lucre. Dr. Bull's Cough Syrup has superior merit. Try it for a cough or cold and be convinced. There are many cough remedies on the market but Dr. Bull's Cough Syrup is the best. 4.-. ;♦. « J Uoyd'J forecast of the We&ther FORem lnE 1 7icinity. | £ FRIDAY, Fair; west winds; cooler.

Suppose we were to read of some man, living in another county or state, who managed, before he was sixteen years old, to acquire a good common school education while working as slate picker in a colliery at 50 cents per day. Suppose we should read that this boy at the age of sixteen years went away to a strange place, where a country paper was published, and hired himself out as an apprentice; that he rose by the power of hard work, honesty and integrity, from the posi tion of "printers' devil," to be sole manager, editor and publisher of this same paper; that when he was 45 years of age he had been for many years one of the acknowledged leaders of the Republican party in his county, a man of influence and a leader in all public i enterprises; and that he had honorably | represented his county in the State Legislature, (this same county to which he came at the age of 16 years), with I nothing but his honesty and energy to recommend him. Should we read this thing we would envy the county that had such a man among her citi zens. We would say, "There is a man his fellow citizens should delight to honor; there is a man any county ought to be proud of." Where does this man live? He is a citizen of Cam eron county, Pennsylvania, and has been for thirty years or more. For the above is, though brief, a true sketch of the life of Henry H. Mullin, our candi date for Representative, and a man whom the people may rely upon to be in his place from the beginning to the end of the session of the Legislature, and to fairly and honestly represent his constituents at all times. Henry H. Mullin stands squarely before the people on his record. It was common talk among the Re presentatives from all parts of the state, at Harrisburg, during the session of '94 and '95, that no man in the state worked harder, more persistently or more enthusiastically for the best in terest of his county than Mullin, of Cameron. A strong party man, loyal, brave, true to his friends, yet Mr. Mullin may always be depended upon to remain true to the best interests of Cameron county under any and all circumstances. Judge fletzger Held Up. While walking along Fourth street, near the Church of Annunciation, at Williamsport, Saturday night, Judge John J. Metzger was held up by four men who had hidden in the shadow of the church. One of the men demanded the Judge's money while the others surrounded him, but just at this junct ure Alderman Batzle and a friend ap proached and the footpads escaped into an alley. It is to be hoped his Honor will havo thepleasure of seeing these four gentle men again, but in the Court House, at no far distant day. The P. R. R. Co.'s New Bridge. Work on the new bridge that the P. R. R. Co., are putting in just below the junction, is progressing as rapidly as possible. The middle pier has been completed and in another week the west end abutment will be in condition to support the sleepers and iron railing. In order to insure a solid foundation for ttie pier and abutment, excavations were made to the depth of twenty-eight j feet below the level of the rails. Two j crews are employed, one for the day 1 and one for the night shift Austin's New Paper. Copy No. 2, Vol 1, of the Austin : Republican came to us last week and | we warmly welcome it to our exchange 1 list.

The Brett piano leads the world. For catalogue and terms write to O. B. Hummel, 318 Bellefonte Avenue, Lock Haven, Pa. Emerson's Son as an Author. Ralph Waldo Emerson's son, Dr. Edward Emerson, himself a boy when Louisa Alcott was a girl in Concord has written an article on "When Louisa Alcott was a girl," which the Ladies' Home Journal is about to publish. Doctor Emerson gives a new view of the author of "Little Men"—as a mimic, and as the central figure of every dance and merrymaking in old Concord. Wedding Bells. One of the prettiest autumn wed dings ever witnessed in Emporium was solemnized at the Methodist Episcopal Church last Wednesday at high noon, when Miss Mary Ardelle, only daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Matthew Phoenix, of Cameron, and Mr. Richard Skyles Oyler, of Westport were united in the holy bonds of wedlock The church was beautifully decor ated; the altar being one profusion of roses, ferns and smilax and the chancel rail was banked with palms and autumn flowers. At half-past eleven the guests began to assemble and before the midday hour had arrived the church was filled with interested spectators. Messrs. Mock, Porter and Harris as ushers discharged their duties most gracefully. Promptly at the appointed time the doors were thrown open and to the strains of Mendelsshons Wedding March, rendered by Miss Sadie Chap man, the ushers entered and slowly moved down the aisle followed by Miss Gertrude Potter, Miss Byrde Taggart, Miss Staples, as bridesmaids, Miss Nellie Huntley, Maid of Honor, with Mr. Skillington as best man and the bride leaning on the arm of the groom. The bride was arrayed in a rich gown of mousselinc de soie over white silk and carried a boquet of Bride's Roses, and the groom was neatly attired in the conventional black. At the end of the aisle they were met by the Rev. J. M. Johnston who per formed the beautiful and impressive marriage service of the Methodist Episcopal Church, after the two had been made one the blessings of God were invoked and the newly married couple marched down the aisle, the admired of all present The bridal party together with a largo number of relatives and friends were conveyed to the Warner House where a brilliant reception took place, and at 8:20, amid a shower of rice and the best wishes of their friends, the happy couple departed on a wedding tour to Washington, Philadelphia and other eastern cities. The bride with her many accom plishments and charming personality has ever been a central figure among the younger society of Emporium, and her popularity cannot be better at tested than by the genuine regret with which her host of friends witnessed her departure. The groom is a popular and talented young minister and at present is filling the pastorate of the Westport M. E. Church, at which place they will reside upon their re turn from the wedding trip. POLITICAL NOTES. If District Attorney Graham has no more evidence against Senator Quay than he has yet produced he may find himself impeached and removed from office, as it is somewhat dangerous to attempt to blacken a man's reputation with trumped up, rotten charges. The Pharisaical reformers make a great ado about Senator Quay's tele gram in which he says"he will shake the plum tree." These wonderful second sight-seers will get it through their heads after a while that what they think this phrase meant is not evidence and that they can by no pos sibility learn what the Senator did mean by it unless the Senator himself tells them. The Philadelphia Press published an important dispatch from Norristown, which stated that the Anti-Quay League "expected to poll a largo vote in the strong anti-Quay districts" of that county. That a man would be likely to meet the strongest opposition where he had the strongest opposition is, to say the least, a very peculiar thing, the importance of which it requires the enormous brain of a poli tical genius working over time to dis cover. Another Murder in Potter. At three o'clock last Saturday after noon at the quiet little town of Mills, located in the heart of Potter county, James Whitehead frenzied with jeal ousy deliberately entered a neighbor's house, where his wife was staying and fired three shots into her defenseless body. After committing the cowardly deed he cooly walked away from the house, entered a piece of woods and has not been heard of since. A large posse of men under the leadership of Sheriff Gillon are scouring the woods and patroling the different roads lead ing out of Mills, in search of the mur derer and as his description has been telegraphed to all surrounding towns, his capture will only be a question of a few hours. Mrs. Whitehead is still alive but can not r cover. Whitehead's description is as follows: Five feet, six to eight inches in height; weight, about 140 pounds; dark hair and moustache; thumb off right hand; left shoulder recently injured, may still be bandaged; reserved demeanor; generally uncommunicative to strang ers. He wore a light-weight coat —no overcoat —and pointed shoes. County Commissioner Stevens visited the scene of the murder yesterday and assured the District Attorney that a reward would immediately be offered tor Whitehead's apprehension. A Romantic fleeting. There was a somewhat romantic meeting at the home of Hon. C. W. Stone, Sunday, when Gen. IJ. F. Fisher, of Valley Forge, Chester county and Captain L. T. Borchers, of this city, grasped hands and exchanged felicita tions for the first time in thirty-four years. Both are veterans of the civil war and the last time they saw each other was in Libby prison, where for seven months they endured together the terrible hardships of rebel prison life. The two former comrades were invited to dine with Congressman Stone. They spent the afternoon to gether and recalled incidents of the war and prison experiences. Gen. Fisher w.'is one of the party of eleven, headed by Captain Rose, who dug a tunnel out of Libby prison and escaped on the night of Feb. 10, 1864. He was never recaptured. He kept under cover of woods and after a number of days he reached Fortress Monroe. About that time Captain Borchers was paroled after twenty-seven months of prison life. Gen. Fisher returned to his home Sunday evening.—Warren Mirror. For Sale. A thorough-bred English Setter dog, 20 months old, all ready for business. Enquire of THOS WADDINGTON. Facts for Republicans. "Silver Joe" Sibley can only be elected to Congress by Republican votes. Why should he be elected ? Look over his record. While in Con gress he introduced nine bills; only one was taken out of committee; and not one of the nine became a law. What was he good for in Congress? Our present representative, Charles W. Stone has a much different record. No member is more faithful to the interests of his constituents; no mem ber is more prompt to answer every inquiry; none more active diligent and attentive to duty. In what way can Mr. Sibley be'a better representative of this Congres sional district than is Mr, Stone? Why should Republicans elect a full-blooded Silverite ? A man of fads isms and notions. There is no good reason. We say to the Republicans of Warren county: Don't let the personal differ ences and factional quarrels of Repub licans in Kane, Oil City or any other place in this district, influence you a particle or turn you away from sup porting Mr. Stone for Congress; a man who is an honor to Warren county and who stands higli in the estimation of President McKinley and other promin ent Republican leaders. Don't forget that the election of a Democratic Con gress this year would be a public calamity. Vote for men who are true to the party and to the people they represent. The chairman of the Venango Demo cratic county committee said recently: "THE ONLY HOPE WE HAVE OF ELECTING THE DEMOCRATIC TICKET IS BY GETTING REPUBLI CANS TO VOTE FOR OUR CANDI DATES. WE HAVE NOT ENOUGH DEMOCRATIC VOTES TO WIN." This open admission ought to be sufficient to inform Republicans of Warren county as to the purposes and plan of campaign by the Democrats. Every possible effort will be made to induce Republicans to betray their party, and repudiate their life-long devotion to its principles. Appeals on personal grounds and every other device will be used as a means of get ting Republicans to vote for the Demo cratic candidate for Congress, who, if elected, would vote in opposition to every Republican measure calculated to support the administration of Presi dent McKinley. Charles W. Stone, the Republican candidate for Congress is a tried, true, able, honest man. Don't fail to vote for him. He will represent you faithfully. Installation.

The Appellate Division of the Su preme court has awarded James Purdy of Wellsville N. Y. a verdict of §SOO in his suit against the Erie Railroad Com pany.
