he flakes an Announcement to that
Effect, Before Leaving for Florida--
Offers a Reward of SIO,OOO.
Senator Quay, before his departure
for Florida, formally announced his
candidacy for re election. He was in
consultation with Senator Penrose,
State Chairman Elkin, ex-Auditor
General Mylin, Allen I?. Rorke, Senator
Durham and other lieutenants. Sena
tor Penrose, Allen B. Rorke and the
Beaver man's three sons accompanied
him to Florida.
The announcement of Senator Quay's
candidacy was made in the following
signed statement given out by him
just before lie left the Hotel Walton
for Florida:
"Throughout the remarkable cam
paign just closed I declined to give ex
pression to any opinion regarding the
issues involved or the methods resorted
to by the enemies of Republicanism,
though persistently urged to speak It
may not be out of place to briefly do
so, now that the battle is over and the
victory won. There has never been
such a contest in Pennsylvania or any
other Commonwealth. Those engaged
in the warfare against the Republican
candidates and against those conspicu
ous in the councils of the party cast
issues and principles to the four winds,
and the contest was a man-hunt, pure
and simple.
"Villification and misrepresentation
took the place of argument and logic,
and the passion of man was appealed
to rather than his reason. Never in
the history of American politics did
personal abuse reach such a high tide
of development, not even in the days I
of Alexander Hamilton, who was j
hounded by malicious enemies as no |
man in political life had ever been j
before. The result in Pennsylvania ]
is not only personally gratifying to me, |
but it must be to every fair-minded j
Republican in the State.
"The sovereign people have, by their
emphatic verdict, set the seal of con
demnation upon the hideous methods |
of campaigning resorted to in the late ;
contest, by the enemies of the Republi
can party. The falsifier, the scandal- ;
monger,the libeler,has been repudiated i
by the people, and never again will
the present generation witness the
performances of this brood of character i
"Despite the extraordinary efforts to :
defeat Republican candidates for the •
Legislature, which have been success- ]
ful in a number of counties, the Gen
eral Assembly will be overwhelmingly j
Republican, the political complexion
of the two bodies being as follows:
"Senate-Republicans, MS; Democrats,
12. House —Republicans, 1*27; Demo
crats, 74; Independents, 3.
"The Legislature will comprise,
therefore, 165 Republicans. 80 Demo
crats and 3 Independents, a liepubli
cro majority on joint ballot of 70, or
nearly two-thirds. Regarding the
United States Senatorship, I can only
say this: All of my personal friends
have been aware of my personal an
tipathy to another term in the Senate,
but those prominent in the late crusade
against the Republican State Legisla
tive candidates chose to force the issue.
"They have made it imperative that
I shall be a candidate for re-election.
"The guage of battle is accepted.
The result is in the hands of the lie
publican members of the incoming
legislature, a very large proportion of
whom are my political and personal
"Of the result there can be no pos
sible doubt. Throughout the campaign
just closed enormous stuns of iioney
were used to defeat Republican Legis
lative candidates. 1 have no doubt
efforts will be made to tamper with
, some of the members-elect, but they
will not be successful. The attempt to
purchase i he United States Senat orship
two jean: ago did not succeed then,
nor will a similar attempt succeed now,
bargain-counter methods having been
repudiated by the people of this State.
"Should, however, any attempt be
made to bride Legislators-elect, the
same leniency will not be shown as in
the Van Valkenburgcase. That there
may be no mistake regarding my posi
tion in this matter, I hereby offer a
reward of £IO,OOO for information lcad
\ ing to the arrest and conviction of any
one endeavoring to bribe any State
Senator or Representative-elect. The
money for the payment of this reward
I is on deposit with George A. Iluhu &
; Sons, bankers and brokers, Philadel
phia." M. s. QUAY.

Austin Burglarized.
The "Saw Dust City" was visited
early Tuesday morning by a gang of
"bold, bad men," who proceeded to do
the place up brown. After procuring
a slab they broke in the plate glass
window in Warner's jewelry store and
secured revolvers and ammunition to
the amount of twenty dollars. They
then repaired to the Enterprise House
and relieved the till of about thirteen
dollars in cash, and taking the cigar
ease with them up Turner street, where
it was emptied of its contents Wat
kin's Racket Store was next visited
but they couldn't have made much of
a racket in effecting an entrance to the
store as they found no trouble in
reaching the old gentleman's bed room j
and gaining possession of his clothes,
which they quickly rifled of a watch,
pocket book and pair of spectacles. At
this hour no further depredations have
been reported. No clue to the robbers.

Sailing Under False Colors.
The Erie Dispatch in commenting on
the defeat of Geo Higgins for Congress,
in the Erie-Crawford district by only
21 votes, claims the almost unanimous
vote of the Prohibitionists (?) was east
for the Democratic candidate. Why
bless you soul, of course they voted
for the Democratic candidate—they
will do that always. As a class the
Prohibitionists are the most hypo
critical, inconsistent and unreliable
commodity on the market and may be
expected to work and vote with the
whiskey class every time, no matter
how worthy the other fellow may be
or how strong he may be in favor of
temperance. Honest, conscientious
temperance men are not Prohibition
ists—this class of men have long since
deserted that crew. Prohibitionists
are sore-heads, disgruntled, "holier
than thou" class of men—demagogues
masquerading tinder the disguise of
temperance. Scratch under the hide
of nine out of every ten of the leaders
and you will find a free trade, free
silver Democrat.
All for "Reform."
The 27tli Congressional district
should have six Republican members
in the Legislature but the potent in
fluences of free silver and lots of it
knocked out three of them—two from
Venango and one from Cameron.
Thank the Lord that Dempsey and
Richmond of this county and Parshall
of Warren were saved; even if the lat
ter only got in by a scratch. Mullin
of Cameron, by good rights should
have been elected. It is it disgrace
that he was not as the rest of the Re
publican ticket in that county went
through in good shape. It seems that
there are treacherous, purchasable
Republicans in that county as well as
in others of the 27th district.—Kane

Senator Magee says he is not a can

into a convention or a contest, he
