THE CAMERON COUNTY PRESS.
ESTABLISHED BY C. B. GOULD, MARCH, 1866.
XWHEN you see this item mark
ed with an X, ill blue or black
pencil mark across its face you
will know that your subscription
is due, or past due. Your name will
be found printed on each copy of the
PRESS, as you receive it and gives the
last date to which you have paid. Our
terms are §2.00 if not paid in advance,
$1.50 in advance. Many, very many,
of our patrons allow their subscrip
tions to run year after year. This we
are unable to stand. It requires
money to purchase paper and pay em- 112
ployes and we must insist upon the 1
payment of subscriptions due us. We j
have been patient, but "patience has |
ceased to be a virtue," and we now j
propose to weed out all those subscri- j
hers who show no disposition to pay i
for their paper.

What is the Hatter? Waste!
One item of waste is time. Elihu
Barrett, the learned blacksmith, was
able to converse in several languages
and could read and write in many.
This he acquired while at work at the
forge, and that when his advantages
through books and living teachers
were much less than now.
There is not a boy or girl in our land
of fair abilities and health who may
not become proficient in some calling,
choosing that to which their talents or
Another source of waste is careless
ness, thoughtlessness. The want of a
nail in a horse shoe causes the loss of a
horse; the want of a bolt in a carriage
causes the loss of the carriage; the lack
of the use of a plow, cultivator or hoe
causes the loss of a crop and allows
the weeds to grow and to seed, which
increases the time and labor of caring
for the succeeding crop, and lessens
the value of it, for the strength re
quired to produce the weeds takes so
much of what should have gone into
the crop. The cook sits down to read
a silly story, or steps out to discuss
some gossip with an associate and the
steak or other food is injured or spoiled
and with it the tempers of the house
Were it not for woste of time, means
and talent, what a nation this might
become in knowledge, wealth and
power, and how happy.
Supporting the Administration.
From the Pittsburg Dispatch.
The complete figures of the vote for
Governor and Congressman, respec
tively, in the Twenty-seventh District
of this State, will give the people an
object lesson in supporting the Ad
ministration and upholding national
issues that are calculated to take away
the public breath This, it is to be
remembered, is, according to all re
presentations of the Republican au
thorities, the first duty of man, and
the way that duty was performed up
in the Venango district was a stunner.
The full returns show that there
were about 1400 people who nobly
rallied to the defense of Republican
principles and the support of the
national administration by voting for
W. A. Stone for Governor. But having
done so they had to have relief and
recreation, which they found by voting
to send Sibley, the rankest free silver
man the State has produced, to Con
gress. The novelty of upholding the
Administration in that way is striking,
but may lead to incongruities. For
instance, if two years hence a large
element should be found to uphold
Republican principles, in voting for
county officers, and then rest them
selves by voting the Democratic elec
toral ticket, there might be sarcastic
comments evoked, to say nothing of
the jeers of the unregenerate.
The Philadelphia Inquirer, a reliable
Republican paper, wraps the "party
wreckers" over the knuckles in the
"While they have elected neither a
Democratic Governor nor a Demo
cratic Legislature, they have succeeded
in sending several new Democratic
members of Congress to Washington
to aid other Democrats in opposing
the policies of President McKinley.
While they did not assail Republican
candidates for Congress, except in one
instance, we believe, they stirred up
strife in bitter factional speeches, and
in close districts this was fatal. They
went into C. W. Stone's district and
Mr. Stone was defeated. They went
into the Luzerne district, and Morgan
B. Williams was beaten. They went
into the Crawford district and Clear
field district and the Schuylkill and
Northampton and Northumberland
districts, and the Republican candi
dates were all defeated. The present
Pennsylvania delegation in Congress
stands: Republicans, 27; Democrats, 3.
The next delegation will stand: Re
publicans, 20; Democrats, 10. We
trust that the Party Wreckers are en
tirely satisfied with their work. How
grandly they stood by McKinley !"

What Troubles You, Sam?
"What particular fault can neighbor
Rogers, of the Kane Republican, find
with Dr. Smith, of Cameron county,
the Democrat who was elected to the
Assembly in that county last week,"
asks the Smethport Democrat. As Dr.
Smith's name has never before appear
ed in this paper, and as no occasion
has called for any reference to him or
his candidacy, it is not easy to deter
mine what editor Lindsley is driving
at. Dr. Smith may be all right as a
citizen, but as a legislator he was very
much of a nonentity in the last House.
He did not command anything like the
position that Mr. Mullin did in the
proceeding House. This is the reply
we make to Mr. Linds'ey's mythical
Miss Laura Evans, of Emporium,
who has had five years experience in
tlio large dressmaking establishments
of Philadelphia is prepared to do dress
making at home or by the day. 2t
The Philadelphia Press, in a recent
issue, says:"The Lewisburg Satur
day News, whose esteemed editor was
defeated for the Legislature at the late
election, seems to be impressed by the
idea that the result was brought about
by bribery. It declares that some of
the attendants at a prayer meeting in
West Buffalo Township were called
out by a Democratic constable, who
treated them to whiskey, "one fellow
being offered seventy-five cents for his
vote." It further says that in Hartley
Township "another Democratic office
holder exhibited a marked ability as a
convincing behind-the-door orator and
passer of red-eye and coin," and"to
record every incident of this kind
that occurred in the recent campaign
would require more than ten columns."
Bribery or attempt to bribe is a pretty
serious crime under the statutes of
Pennsylvania. Our contemporary
would 1)0 doing the whole state an im
portant service by using its informa
tion to prosecute the guilty." Had the
editors of the Philadelphia Press and
Lewisburg News been in Cameron
county on the Bth of November they
could have seen the most brazen ex
hibitions of bribery—no beliind-the
door business about it, but open bargain
and sale to the highest bidder The
prices paid for votes for the Demo
cratic candidates were from $0 to §ls;
§5 to $lO to refrain from voting and
"name-your-priee" should you be a
Republican worker or committeeman,
to stand around and keep quiet and
call "assistance" when voting. No
wonder a leading Emporium Demo
cratic worker exclaimed the other day,
"don't talk to me about the election,
we have nothing to be proud of; it was
a disgrace and I am ashamed of it —
ashamed of our people—and, seriously,
what is Cameron county coming to?"

Rev. W. R. McNeil's pastorate of the
First Baptist church of Emporium,
ceased with last Sunday's services.
Rev. McNeil came to Emporium eight
years ago and has labored zealously
for the upbuilding of his church. Dur
ing the past year his health has failed
and his physician has ordered him to
cease active labor for the present. It
is with general regret that this elo
quent divine leaves Emporium. He
has by his genial manners won the re
spect and esteem of all classes and
creeds. Ever ready to lend a hand in
any laudable enterprise, always gladly
raising his voice in behalf of any good
cause. W. R. McNeil was closely iden
tified with our town and county. A
man of liberal and consistent views up
on all subjects, a man of strong will
power, he dares to do what he con
siders right at all times and under all
circumstances and never buries his
opinions under a half-bushel measure.
Rev. McNeil is a broad-guaged gentle
man, a consistent christian —a true
American citizen. ,
The services at the Baptist church
last Sunday were largely attended by
our people, a mark of respect to the re
tiring Pastor. At the evening services
Rev. Rob't McCaslin, Pastor of the
Presbyterian church, occupied the
pulpit and delivered a very able ad
dress and feelingly referred to the high
esteem in which Rev. McNeil is held
by our citizens. Rev. McNeil's re
marks were notofthe ''farewell" order,
yet he spoke in his usual happy strain
and related his experience of forty
years in the ministry.
Prof. H. F. Stauffer, principal of Em
porium schools, spoke a few words in
behalf of the friends and admirers of
the Rev. gentleman present. His re
marks conveyed the unanimous senti
ments of our people.

Mr. Herrick was one of the pioneers
of Cameron icounty, having been
identified with its interests since 1803.
One by one the old pioneers are drop
ping by the wayside, wearied with the
long march of life, while time covers
up their foot-prints, as generations
come and go. The deceased will be
missed in the circle of friends that
surrounded him —sadly missed, yet the
Ruler of the universe doeth all things
well. The funeral was held from his
late residence at Sterling Run, on Sun
day afternoon, at two o'clock and was
very largely attended by friends from
adjoining towns. Rev. W R. McNeil,
of Emporium, preached the funeral
sermon, a very able effort and highly
appropriate to the occasion.

himself with. Ho was thrown on his
head and shoulders close to the car

presence of mind of Station Agent
Gallagher, who pulled him from the
passing wheels, the Reverend gentle
man would have been terribly mangled.
