The Shortest Convention Ever
Held in Pennsylvania.
The Republican State Convention
yesterday nominated a complete State
ticket in the shortest convention ever
held in Harrisburg or anywhere else in
Pennsylvania Bince the birth of the
party. In a harmonious gathering
presided over by that ablest of par
liamentarians, William E. Crow, of
Fayette, which began at 10:35 and end
ed at 11:59. The following ticket was
selected for the four State offices to be
tilled in November:
JOHN K. TENER,
Cbarleroi, Washington county.
For Lieutenant Governor,
CONGRESSMAN IOHN M. REYNOLDS.
For State Treasurer,
C. FREI» WRIGHT,
A strong platform was adopted
and ex-Speaker Henry F. Walton, of
Philadelphia, elected State chairman
in succession to the lamented Col.
Wesley Andrews. Half an hour after
the convention adjourned the certifi
cates of nomination for each candi
date was on tile in the State Capitol.
It was a wonderful convention. It
contained the leaders of the party in
t lie citadel of Republicanism and every
nonination was made by acclamation.
Men who had come to llarrishurg urg
ing the nomination of aspirants other
than those selected joined with the ad
herents of the successful men in mak
ing the convention a model for expi
ditious dispatch of business, harmony
aud enthusiasm. The party presents
a united front and the delegates and
sightseers left the city this afternoon
cheering for the ticket and rejoicing
in the prospects of victory in Novem
Sinnamahoning Odd Fellows.
The members of Sinnamahoning
Lodge No 1138 I. O. () F. held A t 'IH»H
initiation on Saturday evening. The
work was performed by the Renovo
Degree Stair in an able manner. A ban
quet was served to visitors Iront Look
Haven, Renovo, Emporium, Driftwood
and Hicks Run. A class of eight was
initiated into the mysteries of the first
ami second degrees of Odd Fellowhlp.

ttlg Fire at Kane,
Fire brokeout yesterday in the Kano
Sliding Blind Company's factory and
destroyed the whole plant, entailing a
loss of over f'to.ooo with only SIU,OoO
Insurance. Just what caused the fire
is not ileflnately known but It is sup
posed to have originated in one of the
lillishing rooms where considerable oil
ami tarnish is used, During the pro
cess, oily waste is used in rubbing and
it is thought that a tire was caused by
' simultaneous combustion.
Injured in Woods.
A young man, by the name of Davis,
from Rich Valley, received a bad cut
011 the left leg below the knee, ou Wed
nesday morning, which required sev
eral stitches to dlaw It together. The
accident occurred while he w.u» «t his
work in Howard's wood* Dr. H, M.
Falk was the attending physician.
Violation of Trespassing Law.
Trespassing on railroad property in
violation of the law has caused the
death of more than 50,0 00 people in
the United States in the last eleven
years. In this same period more than
55,000 trespassers have been injured.
With a view to reducing to a mini
mum the practice of trespassing on its
property, the Pennsylvania Railroad
has determined to redouble its efforts
to secure on its lines that rigid en
forcement of the law against trespass
ing which in foreign countries has
done so much to decrease the number
of fatalities resulting from trespassing.
In 1907 the Pennsylvania inaugurat
ed a vigorous campaign against tres
passing, and, duo doubtless to this, the
number of trespassers killed in 190S
was only 757. In 1909, 732 lost their
lives in this way. In the eleven years
prior to January Ist, 1910, exactly 7,-
972 people who were on the Pennsyl
vania Railroad's right of way in wilful
violation of the law, in spite of thous
ands of warning signs along the rail
road, were killed. It is thus seen that
in the eleven years an average of two
trespassers a day have been ki'led on
Pennsylvania Railroad proper y.
This long death roll is every year
charged up to the Railroad even
though there i>eople are killed as a re
sult of their violating the law, and
under conditions over which the Com
pany has no control.
It is not only tramps who are killed
and injured while trespassing, though
thousands of them lose their lives this
way every year. Men of the laboring
class, factory workmen, their wives
and children, who use railroad tracks
as thoroughfares, are killed by hun
dreds. That the practice of walking
on railroad tracks is prevalent in in
dustrial districts gives added signiti
cance to the fatalities on the Pennsyl
vania System as a result of tre <pass
ing The tracks of the Pennsylvania
ate lined with factories, as they run
through the densest industrial section,
through territory which holds more
than half of the population of the I'ni
ted States. Over 10,t)0o trespassers
were arrested in the year 1!»"»
In IMiS, tr«*spassers lost their
llvee on American radroads, five years
later the number was 6,000 and in 1907
the nimilier killed was 5,K12 more
than 15 a day. These figures are tak
en from the annual reports of the In
tcrstate Commerce Commission. Fig
ures compiled by the Pennsylvania
Railroad alone show that hi > trespass
ers lost their lives on that System's
lines iu ls!»9, 7*l were killed in 1904;
while in 1907 the number reached fl.»
an a\crage of almost throe for every
business day in the year.
The Penns< Ivuuia Railroad has now
posted its tracks auil stationed watch
men to see that waruiugs against tres
pa-wing are respected, liy redoubling
its efforts the Company is endeavoring
to reduce the number of trespassers
who are killed and injured by an even
greater numlier than It baa doue iu the
past three years.
The co operation of City aud Couut)
authorities it.is been solicited iu this
campaign. Heretofore the actual
punishment of |>ersous violating the
laws f.irbidding trespassing on a rail
road's prl\at«i property has heeu in
frvtpieiit. The cost of iui prison me ut
has deteried the local courts from
holding Hume arrested while trespass
lug on railroad property.
