POSTPONKO.— The Democratic Mate
Convention has been ,
two weeks—from August Sth to the --d.
The Democratic Senatorial Conference
of tliia district, met at the Ward House,
Tyrone, July 31,1STT, for the purpose of
electing a delegate to represent the 34
district in the Democratic State Conven
tion to be held at llarrisburg. Aug. 22
Conferees prreent:
Clinton—R. K. Bridgcne, G. W.
Bachelor and Mr. Crawford.
Clearfield—E. Bloom, Matt M'Atee,
and Col. Brisbin.
Centre —John Rishel, John Meyers,
and J. F. Kreba.
The Conference organixeil by electing
Mr. Brisbin Chairman, and Messrs.
Crawford and Krebe, Secretaries.
After diseuasing the propriety of in
structions and non-instructions the fol
lowing resolution waa oflbred by Mr.
Raolr*d, That Adam Hoy, of Relle
fonte. Centre county, be unanimously
elected Senatorial Delegate of the 34 dis
trict to represent the same in the Peru*
ocratic Convention to be held in llar
risburg on the 22, of August 137 >, with
in-trtctiona to rote for Col. A. C. Noyea
for State Treasurer, provided Hon. C. A.
Mayer is rot nomiuated for the office of
Supreme Judga.
Signed by the officers.
The Clinton Deme. rat gives the fol
lowing explanation relative to the sus
pension: On Monday morning last
Lock Haven National Bank posted tl e
following notice on the door: "Tliia
hank ia close*! for the present for want
of currency to pay dei<oeitora." "Ibis
action was undoubtedly caused by tbe
great depression existing ip the lumber
bnsinere. the bank having loaned out ita
funds on what it believed to be good
paper, but failed to collect the loans
when they fell due. To make matters
worse, the distrust created in the minds
ofmauy of the depositor* owing to the
great strike, caused a great run upontl.a
institution last week, which resulted in
its having been compelled to close. On
Monday morning a large crowd eject
ed in front of the building, but no per
sons. except the Director* and employ
ees, were admitted. On Tuesday morn
ing the bank resumed business to the
extent of renewal and payment of notes
but no other business has been transact
ed as yet. Th* Directors and officials,
assisted by several experts, are making
a thorough investigation of affairs, and
up to th* time of going to press, there
were apparently enough assets to meet
all liabilities.
We hope that the bank will *oon be in
fall operation, as the officers and Direc
tors are men of integrity, and deserving
the fall confidence of its patron* and the
public generally.
The suspension has not affected the
First National Bank or the house of
Moore, Simpson, & Co. They are re
aring and paying out about as much
as they did previous to the suspension,
and discounting notes as usual. They
are fully prepared for any emergency.
The director* and President of the
Pennsylvania Railway Company now
testify directly that no more than ten
per cent, of the employes ofthat railway
took any part in the recent strikes, and
imply indirectly that of this small pro
portion some at least were intimidated
into lawless interference with the com
pany's rights and interests by "men in
no wsy connected with tbe railway ser
vice." A resolution of thanks waa pass
ed by the board of directors to the em*
ployes who remained faithful.

The recent whipping the Czar got, has
stirred him up. St. Petersburg despatch

An nkase ha* been iasued ordering

the divisions are to joir the army in

of the newiy-mobilizeu troops go to re

Another ukase, signed by the Czar at
Btela, Jnly 22, order* a levy of 188,000 of

A FOOL AT LARO*.— During the riot in
Aitoona, on Sunday last, District At*
to rite v, Col. James F. Milliken, the
prosecutor of the criminals of Blair
couutv, made a speech to th* mob, auJ,
among other foolish and wicked things,
he said.
"Ererv umu not controlled by the
Pennsylrania Railroad is with you
heart and soul. So long a* you are or
der!*, interfering in no man's private
business you will have the support of
Blair county and Penns> Ivania. I was
once Colonel of the Fifth Regiment, and
have in the paat had a good deal of had
luck. I think 1 struck a good streak
just now. And I wish to add one thing
just here ; not one man in the regiment
can be compelled to turn out. If auy
one does so you may mark him as one
who wants to turn out against yon.
There is nothing in the militia law of
this Commonwealth which can be con
strued as compulsory. In conclusion,
'l'nited you stand, divided you fall.
Now is vour time. If the shop men turn
out now* the Pennsylvania Railroad can
not over-set the demands of the people.
You know vour rights. Stick to them
and youwiil get what you want and
what you are entitled to —a fair day's
wages for a fair dav's work. lam with
you heart and soul. If you want a friend
you will find him in Jim Milliken.
Good night!"

B. Wilson, of Bellefonte, has been elec

The coalition on which President Mac-
Mahon relies to overcome the Republi

seems to be falling to pieces. In the

Legitimists and Bonapartiats, aud then
came about divisionsiu the ranka of the
Bonapartiata, Konher leading one fac
tion and Caaeaignac the other. The suc

ing October elections is generally con
ceded. What will the President do if
again confronted by a hostile majority ?
That's the next question.

London, August 1— A dispatch to the!
Dally Telegraph dated Pent, July 31,j
midnight, says-' "Intelligence just re
ceived here from Osman Pasha announces
a great Turkish Tictory. The enemy ware
completely routed after two days' severe
fighting, with a lots of 8,000 killed and 16,-
OHO wounded. The Turks captured a great
quantity of arms and ammunition. Tha
Turkish casualties were comparatively
small, owing to the fact that tbey fought
upon the defensive.

Prince Scbackoeko's force, telegraphing

give* an account of the retreat, lie says
the road from Pardin to Dulgarini was
cumbered with broken and retreating
troops wholly destitute of ordor, officer*
without soldier*, loldiori without officer*,
without cohesion, and mostly without
arm*. At tho narrow bridge near Bui
garini there was wild confusion and a com
plete block. Tumbrils, ambulance wagons
provision wagons, officers' calaches, led
horses and cart* filled with wounded, all
were jamyiod In indescribable chaos.
Tfiorc had been wounded all along tho
road, but the bulk of tho wounded began
a little way beyond Dulgarini and extend
ed in an unbroken line for seven miles
along tbo road to Sistova. They were
mostly carried in ox carts, several cases in '
ambulances, and largur numbers tramped
cn foot. Immense numbers of wounded
had tramped tho whole way from tho bat
tle-fiold and were already entering Sisto
va at six o'clock yesterday evening. They
must havo walked forty miles in twenty
four hours, wounded, however, consisted
of men who had somehow managed to ,
walk out of the battle. The bad vases
were mostly left whero they fell. The staff
officers, with whose estimate I am Inclined
to agree, think the wholo force lost be
tween six and seven thousand men in kill
ed and wounded. A brigade ofthe Thir- .
ty-second division has suffered tho most
heavily. Besides the terrible loss of men,
it sacrificed tho imperial banner of one of

London, August 2—A great battle is
still going on at Softscba. Tho blow
struck at the Ninth Corps by Osman
Pasha, at l'levna. on the 19th of July, was j
no severe that the Eleventh Corps, which
had readied the river Lorn, on the out
skirts of Kustchuk, wa* compelled to
countermarch, and to mass as rapidly as
possible seventy miles west, whery they
were reinforced by the beaten divisions
south ofNlkopolis. Mean while tho Kou- I
inanian division WHS sent to the garfhon ■
at Nikopolis, thus setting freo General 3
Hchildei t treops It was not until yester-
Iday that tha Human* were not fully pre
pared P> renew liio oiigageiiinnl. At thai
time the entiro force of the Kussian* con*
aisled of about <V>,(IOO, embracing tha Ninth
and Klevonth Corps. They wem drawn
up In three columns on tha plain beside
Ilia river Vldi, where tbo troops wore •♦
hortsd by General Krudcnor to bo brwvs
and re'riove their previous lsa*.
Tha order was thru given to advance on
Soflscha, where (Ismail l'asha, with tifty
thousand men, was intrenched behind
hnstily thrown up earth works, having r
jointd the division under Adel l'asha, at
that place. 1 accompanied General
Scbllder, commanding the Ninth Division.
Itsin ws* dropping dismally upon tha al
ready wet roads, and great embarrassment
was caused by thelardiness of tha artillery 1
trains, which could only be dragged
through tha mud with the greatest dtfhcul-i
A halt wns made on the heights over
looking Hofto ha, nud riding < ul upon the
spur jutting from the ridge, one could tec
the white tent* of the Turkish army hvrdv
ed by tbe riverside beyond tha town,'
whilst the long, black, low-lying streaks
marked the recently constructed defenses
Certainly not pleasant looking position
to attack, and, indued, that opinion was
• Ipressed by General Krudsner, when he
came gallopping up where 1 was standing,
followed by Don Carlos, Colonel Mangoff
and General Schilder, but tha attack was
decided at all hssards, and tha artillrry
was brought into position.
The first roar of the cannon was prompt
ly echoed front the Turkish intrenchiiieuts
end then began the most furious artillery
duel, from which our troops did not escape
unharmed, for tha Seventeenth and Kigls
teenth Itegiiuents of infantry of the event
garde were swept through and through by
iron missile*, piling tbe dead and wound
ed lu sickening heaps together. In the
midst of this lbs order was given to storm
the positions in accordance with tbe usual
Russian tactics. Gallantly the Sole-at
Cossacks of the Ninth Corp* ruslNb to the
attack, speeding down the road under a
cloud of smoke. Fur some time 1 was un
able to distinguish anything in tha direc
tion of the town save tbe arhite mineral
upon the hill. Our Infantry advanced
with a solid frcnt, and volleys of musketry
added to the noise of the cennon, making
deafening and continual thunder. The
lighting was for a lung time almost hand
to hand, the Turks making fra<juent sor
ties from behind the shelter of the red
'cross. The attendant* were unabla to car
ry off the wounded so fearful was the
jslaughter When at last the order was
gtvsn to ratire and the Russian gun* grad
' tally ceased firing. I watched tha men
marching just as grimly and steadily hack

It is wonderful what nerve tha*e Russian
men of the iii.o possassed, considering the
awful decimation of their ranks.
Tha Turks did not letlow up their suc-
I cess, evidently eapecling a renewal of tbe
attack on the mornw.

Ail*) minutes baforo flva o'clock yater-|
day afternoon a number of amployoes at
tha foundry of Mcaira. Totter. A Co., on
ilia corner of Twenty-fourth street and
the Allegheny Valley railroad, were en
gaged at casting a chilled rolL Nearly
two tons of iron were required to make
the casting, and the services of twenty
men wrra required to handle it. While
they were |ouring the tnoK<n metal into
the mould there was a sudden r.nd terrific
report, which was closely followed by a
shower of liquid iron. Tho red hot metal
j f.ew in every direction and dropped in
splotches upon and about the terrified
workmen. Realising the horror of their
situation the men ranlto eecape the shower,
in their terror, dropping the lade! which
yet contained most of the metal. The la
. del was overturned and immediately great
streams shot out in quick pursuit of the
j flying laborera. Two of the workmen,
closely fallowed by streams of the red hot
Iron, fall into adjoininfrpilt and the met
al ran in upon them, burning their flesh to
a crisp in many placet. News of the hor-
I rible calamity spread with remarkable ac
tivity. and in a very few moments the
shrieks of women and children living in
the vicinity were added to the groans of
the Injured men. People rushed franti
cally to the foundry with palid counte
nances, wringing their hands in anguish
and piteously calling in God's name to
learn if their friends had escaped the ex
cruciating torture. Arriving at the acena
of the disaster they were still more appall
ed at the horrible sight which met their
gaze. Lying in one of the pits was a man
with his fsce burned to a crisp in different
place* and his eyes literally burnt out of
bis head, while in their places the sockets
were filled with chunks of chilled metal-
Tbia man was George L. Ebbcrt, of Alle
gheny. Ina nother pit way lying Walter
Mo ran. One of his eyes, too, wa* literally
burnt from the socket by the cruel nial,
while hit face, breast, arms and hands
war* burnt to a crisp at different places.
Here and there the redjhot metal had act
ually eaten ita way to the bonce of tho vic
tim. Other men were lying about with
their breaste, arm and legs severely
burned and the scones were certainly the
most heartrending which have been pre
sented in this city for many a long day.
