Death of CharlKM 11. Sprecher.
A telegram received by his friends iu
this city announces that Chas. II. Sprccher,
son of Gee. D. and Careline Sprecher, died
in Brcckenridge, Colerado, en Wednesday
the 20th inst., in the 3-lth year of his age.
The paiticulars regarding his death arc
net given in the dispatch. The remains
will be brought te Lancaster for interment
and will probably reach here about Wed
nesday. Mr. Spiecher was a young man of geed
education and fine business qualifications,
ttcfeic leaving Lancaster he was in busi busi
iiess with his father and afterwards with
O. P. liitner, in the coal trade. Three or
four years age he went West, remaining
in California for a year or mere,and thence
te Oregon and ether points en the Pacific
coast and Kecky Mountains, finally settling
iu Bieckeni hlge where he went into busi
ness, and we understand was well estab
lished at the time of his death. Mr.
Sprecher had hosts of friends in this city,
and it is doubtful if he had a single
enemy. Of fine physique, standing ever
six feet iu height, finely cut
features, having graceful carriage and affa
ble manner, lie was a favorite with all who
knew him. As a son and brother he was
kind and gentle, and the worst we ever
heard said about him was that " he was
tee geed for fiis own geed," and sometimes
unwisely deferred te the wishes of his
friends rather than te the dictates of his
better judgment. He was a member of
the society known as " Survivors," organ
ized after the close of the war, of whom se
"large a proportion have already gene te

Twmif-Mr. Snewilen'n Enumerator Locked
This morning Mayer MacGenigle had

Seed Leaf Tobacco.
The Cincinnati Western Tobacco Journal
has this te say about our Lancaster county
In Pennsylvania the growers are mak
ing preparation for another large crop, and
it would seem, from present prespects. as
if the sturdy Dutch farmers of Lancaster
and adjoining counties were determined te
supply all of the seed leaf tobacco used iu
this country, as well as that needed for ex ex
eort. The great crop of last year has en
couraged the growers te renewed effort,
and the price realized was all that could
be desired, especially at this time, when
most of the products of the soil command
but indifferent prices. That there is a
brisk demand for the dark leaf of this state
no one will deny, but that it takes rank
above that grown elsewhere is net se, since
it has net the fine texture of Connecticut
seed leaf, while it is of stronger flavor.
About 2 o'clock this morning there was
a very light shower of rain in this city. In
the upper part of the county, in the vicin
ity of Mt. Jey and Springviile, the rain
was heavier and the farmers are engaged
at planting tobacco te-day.

ADELAIDE 17. MURDOCH.
Lecture en "Substance and Shadow."
Hiss Adelaide U. Murdoch, sister of the
eminent tragedian and elocutionist James
E. Murdoch, appeared at Fulton opera
house last evening and delivered her lec
ture en " Substance and Shadow," ferthe
benefit of the Free Dispensary of this city,
in charge of Drs. H. B. Stehman and H. E,
Muhlenberg. Owing te the intese heat of
the weather, the audience was net se large
as it should have been, but all present
were delighted with the substance
of the lecture aud the admirable manner
iu which it was handled. Miss Murdoch
is a woman in the prime of life, of queenly
figure and giaceful movement, aud was
dressed with the greatest geed taste. She
possesses a full and flexible voice, which
h is been highly cultivated, and these cf
her audience who have seen her distin"
guished brother en .the beards could net
fail te notice the striking resemblance she
bears te him. Her lecture treated of
the joys and cresses of the family
circle ; of the patriotism and corruption
found ameug our politicians ; of our
admirable system of government, and of
the corruption which is eating out the
vitals of the state, and even threatens its
existence. These pictures of geed and evil, of
substance and of shadow, she drew with a
master hand, and contrasted them in
highest lights aud darkest shades. During
her lecture she recited largely and with
the finest elocutionary touches from
Heed's poem " Miss Kilmanseg and Her
Gelden Leg." At the close of her lec
ture she recided a pathetic poem, which
brought tears te the eyes of many of her

Wine for Females and Invalids.
It is well known that there are cases when
the most strict advocates of temperance are
obliged te use some sort of wiue, especially
these who are old and infirm. Many weakly
females as well as invalids and debilitated per
sons in warm weather need a little strengthen
ing wine. The great difficulty has been in pro
curing a rich wine that Is reliable. There are
many cases where wine would be used te great
advantage In place et alcoholic drinks if only
a genuine article could be bad, and upon
which physicians could rely as being strictly
pnre, without alcoholic admixture. The Pert
Grape Wine of Alfred Speer, of Passaic, New
Jersey, has been analyzed by chemists In
almost every state,and lius always been proved
strictly pure and beneficial. This wine is new
being used in hospitals and in families for me;
diclnal purposes, also in churches for commit
nlen services. Mr. Speer's mode et conducting
the fermentation is such as te retain the rich
fiaveratid sweetness of the fruit wltheutmuch

In this city ei the electro-plated ware et the Gerham Manufacturing Company. These are the
best finished and most durable in the market, and in recommending them te the trade this
company (whose representations are always reliable) claim ter them the following merits :
" The base of the Gerham electro-plate Is of nickel silver. The silver-plated wares made upon
this base combine all the excellence of the solid silver goods except the intrinsic value of the
silver itself. One of the remarkable features of the process of electro-plating Is perfect accu
racy and delicacy with which the finest line of the engraving or chasing traced en the surface
of the nickel base Is reproduced en the surface of the silver coating. Thus all the excellence et
workmanship which baa earned ferthe company its reputation us makers et sterling silver
goods is made tributary te the production of unsurpassed electro-plats. The quantity of pure
silver deposited en the finely finished base exceeds that upon the best of foreign plate. This
ware would be excellent and take a flue polish without a coating et silver, yet upon it is laid u
silver surface which will If net abused last mere than a generation. The object is te pre. luce
plated ware which shall have all the beauty of the solid wares. This high grade et ware Is un -distinguishable
from work in Sterling silver. Its pattern, ornaments and workmanship are
made equal te these for which the Company s Stoning Silverware has been se highly com
mended. Te these conditions is added the undefinable air or style which distinguishes the
genuine in everything from the work et Imitators aud which naturally transfers itself from
the Sterling te the plated ware." The price of these goods is only a trifle higher than some 01
the inferior productions.

Demeerata aad the Election Laws.
There can be very little doubt that the
Democratic party has secured the vantage
ground in the recent debates en the federal
election laws. The whole drift of the dis
cussion has been as te whether these laws
shall be enforced in a parttsan or non-partisan
manner. Ne effort has been made
by the Democrats te alter the laws se
as te secure te their own party any
special privilege? in their enforcement.
On the contrary, all their energies
have been directed toward making that
enforcement as impartial and independ
ent as possible. Their opponents en the
ether hand, have striven with all their
might te retain the laws in their original
shape in order that they may continue te
control the machinery of the elections in
the interest efthe Republican candidates.
They are thus forced te occupy before the
country the unpopular position of resist
ing a wise and temperate modification
of the election laws te which some of
their own leaders stand commit
ted, and which the independent press
throughout the country has approved. The
bill passed by the Senate ou Wednesday
regulating the appointment of chief supei supei
visers was antagonized by Republican sen
ators, notwithstanding the fact that it
places the appointing power in the hands of
t.ie Republican executive, simply because
its practical effect will bete legislate out of
eflice a number of men who have proved
themselves te be pliant tools of the stal
wart wiug of the party and who, accord
ing te tfie terms of the nrovise added
en the motion of Senater Thurnian,
cannot be reapjieiiited te the offices which
they have disgraced. Indeed, through
out the whole discussion of questions
affecting the fctlcr.il supervision of the
polls the Republican senators have appar
autly had but one aim the defeat if possi
ble and change iu laws which are as dan
gerous te the liberties of the people as they
are partisan and odious te all fair-minded
men. The course of the Democrats, en
the ether hand, iias been all the people of
moderate views could ask, ami we doubt
net will meet with substantial recognition
at the polls.
The ClirUtUncy Divorce .Scandal.
The papers, consisting of bill, answer
and cress bill, in the Christiancy divorce
suit, are filed. Mrs. Christiancy is charged
with infidelity and she chanres Mr. Chris
tiancy with having brutally treated her
en many occasions, endangering life at
one time when her condition was deli
cate ; with knocking her down at Lansing,
Mich., and with forcing her, when he was
intoxicated by opium and liquors, te
flee from the American legation in Peru
and take refuge in a neighboring yard.
On this occassien. it is allege!, he further
more threatened te blew her brains out.
His most recent act of brutality, she adds,
lies in his attempt te obtain a divorce
011 the ground that she has been unfaithful
as a wife. She prays, in turn, fera divorce,
alimony and the expenses of the suit. Mr.
Christiancy's counsel, it is said, will make
no defense te the allowance during the
pendency of the suit, but will ask that it
be graded te suit Mrs. Christiancy's con
dition before her marriage.
