In dlrect phrase and with no attempt at
rhetoric, Mr. Petit set forth the history and
character of the order and traced Ha
growth from Its Institution lu 18S0
until new. Starting with soven engineers
iU membership had grown te thousands
and In Pennsylvnuta nlone there were
nearly 600 members. They must all be
citizens of the United States, of geed moral
character, sound health and limb, and
have at least one year's active service s
engineers, and where a ltcotise Is required

' Mil. COWLKS.' ADDRESS.
The mr-ager of the organ of the order,
the American Engineer, Mr. Merrick
Cowles, or Chicago, then read a brief ad
dress, in which alter paying a high compli
ment te the principles or the erder, and te
Lancaster and Its people, he sketched the
practical operation of the bonellcial fea
tures of the Engineer's association. He
spoke from practical experience and wide
observation, and his addr03s was pointed
and well lecelvcd.
URfnESKNTATIVK FllANKMN'b Nl'KKCU.
W. W. Franklin, esq., made an Interest
ing address, tracing the history of the
steam ougine from the first experiments,
B. C, through the rudimentary stages te
the successful application of steam power
by Watt, Fulton and ethor great inventors.
He praised the principles and objects of the
present erder and favored a law regulating
the licensing of these who were put In
ebarge of them.
IlliMAtlKS 11V MR. HhNSLX.
W. U. Hensel being introduced, arose in
the rear end of, the room, and said he f'ilt
that he ought te take the feet of this class.
He belonged te no secret society and no
beneficial erder, and knew nothing of their
inner life and spirit, but had noticed that
most of tbeiti when they wanted a man te
talk about something he knew nothing
about sent for a lawyer or a politician,
The speaker had never directed any mere
difficult machine, than n political commit
tee, nor held the throttle of anything mera
dangereus than a county convention;
but, seriously speaking, he had been much
impressed during the previous speeches
with the universality or the use or the
steam engine and its wlde beneficence.
Nearly everything about us that con
tributes te our moral wcirare or material
c'.evutlen is the product of steam power.
The history or the steam engine is the his
tory or our civilization, our country and
our century, for the steam onglne of the
pagans wero only toys, and there really
was no perfected steam engine until near
the close of the last century. On Indo Inde Indo
pendence Day, 1770, there wbre only two
steam engines in all the United States, and
new our steam pewer Is nearly doublethat
ei cngiana, me worssnep ei tne worm, u
took the toil or 100,000 inen Ter twenty
years te rear the Great Pyramid of Egypt ;
60,000 Americans directing the steam
pewer of their country could perform the
name amount of labor between the rising of
the sun and its going down en n winter
Mr. Hensel extolled that passage, in the
avowed principles of the erder which de
clared that it "shall at no time pait'cipst)
in strikes, nor intorfero iu any way be
tween employer and empleye,"aud which
pledges that, "recognizing their identity
or Interests, it shall take no part In any pre
ject or euterprise that shall Interfere with
perfect harmony between thorn ; neither
shall it be used for political or religious
purposes." He pronounced a great deal of
the clamor about a " conflict between labor
and capitol " as mere " ret ;" social condit
ions in this country chnnge se rapidly that
the laborer of te-day is te-morrow's capi
talist. Associations of men who work with
their hands, forcemmou benefits, were his
torical ; and never could become unpopular
se long as they were wisely dlrccteJ.
Ah Ui state regulation and license, euro
must be taken net te ask nor te expect the
state te de tee much. Hut in Pennsylvania
the principle of license and bisection as
a proper oxerclso of the police power had
long been recognized. The Inspection of
petroleum and of boilers was provided for
bylaw; the sale of Kisens, explosives,
deadly weapons and cigarettes; and the
practice of medicine, dentistry, pharmacy
and even of "boss docterin'. " It did net
seem unreasonable, therefore, that the
stute should be asked te protect the
lives of Its citizens by enforcing effic
iency und ample qualifications en
the part of theso who nre in
chargoef thodcllcute and dangerous en
gines in crowded centres of population,
whose ill-working might at any time deal
death and disaster te life and pioperty.
Harry Hhaub, of this city, an engineer,
and J. K. Sklrk, the well known manufac
turer, concluded the meeting with some
well-timed remarks in eulogy of the erder,
its principles und practical operations,

Postmaster General Wanamaker iu order
te incroase the efficiency of the free dolivery

letter box at each bouse would save much

securlty or the mail. The government has,
of course, no right te comel people te get
boxes, but it Is thought that an official
recommendation by the department would
inducea great many poeplo te get thorn.
He has appointed the Kstuiasters of New New

and Halt imorencommltteo te report as te
the style of box best suited for the purpose.

There have been several lively collisions

Arkansas A Texas railway, was wrecked
by six masked robbers near Texarkana,
Arkansas, at midnight en Monday night.
The onglne, tender and oxpress cars left
tbe track, and an unknown tramp, who
was stealing a rlde was Instantly killed.
The robbers attacked the express car, but
the messenger repulsed them with a Win
chester. Nene et the robbers wero hit and
they returned the lire. Olie of the band
vtafked up and down beside the train with
a Winchester at full cock agalust his
shoulder and shouted, "nobody en this
train will be hurt unless they resist ; keep
your heads in and don't go te firing toy
pistols or you'll get kllled." It Is needless
te say that the passongers ebeyed the In
structions. The messenger, was told that he would
be cremated In the car unless he sur
rendered and he promptly gave In. The
safe woseponed but the robbers only so se
cured about $200. Six masked men went
through tbe trains but molested no ene
Nevlln, the express mossengor, and the
fireman and engineer wero taken into the
weeds by the robbers and tied te trees.

death te all throelf they evor roslsted an

The following petition, signed by 1,575
citizens or Derks county, Mas been sent te
the Senate finance cemmittee:
We, the undersigned, cigar manufac
turers and empleyes or the city of Heading,
Pa., beg te submit te your most favorable
consideration the following!
The McKlnley tariff bill as new framed.
Imposing a two-dollar duty en Imported
wrapper tobacco, would crlpple our busi
ness. It is a certainly, the quantity of do
mestic wrappers new produced Is entirely
Inadequate and of a very Inferior quality.
Whenever the farmer produees a crop
that is at all available for wrappers, he will
find ready sale for same and at better
prices than auy ether product he raises.
If the manufacturers are obliged te dis
card the line quality and line appearing
Sumatra wrappers, and are compelled te
place before our people cigars inade out of
domestic tobacco, which gives atastone
ene can acquire after being accustomed te
smoking goods made out or line quality
domestic tllller and Imported Sumatra
wrappers. There has been mera domestic
tobacco raised and prices obtained ler
same have been mere prolltable te the far
mer than before the Introduction of Suma
tra. Wlien we already pay a duty of 35 te
75 cents per pound Ter Sumatra tobacco, It
is self-evident it is an article we cannot de
without even If we are compelled te pay a
duty or fi per pound.
But we will simply compel the censumer
who would be able te ay llve cents Ter a
mixed cigar te go down Inte his )ecket
and draw u dime te buy ene that would net
under any circumstances suit his taste.
Through this a great many smokers will
de without and tliore iv doereaso tue con
sumptien of cigars te such an extent that
we will be eoniiKslled te clese our plants
and discnntiiitie a business which te-day
gives empleyment te thousands or people.
We are well satisfied that the farmer
will net have the ready sale for his domes
tic filler that he new has, having a to
bacco (In the Sumatra leaf) sultable te
wrap his filler.
If space would permit we would lllus lllus
trnte by statistics the enormeuso incroase
of the manufacture and consumption of
Tlie manufacturers have produced such
a line cigar out of domestie tobacco and
Sumatra wrappers that u great majority of
the smekers accustomed te imported are
new smoking domestie cigars.
We bolleve It an abselute necesslty te
haeSumutra tobacco, and from the facts
set forth your honerablo coramlttee can
see that an Incroase of duty will net In
crease the demand for domestic tobacco.
Thoreforo we horebV1 vigorously pretest
against the passage of said bill and earn
estly pray It te be se amended te give us a

FunNiss, Lan. Ce., Pa., June 10.
Knnens lNri:i.i.tORNci:n : Who will be
the Democratic candidate for governor Is
an absorbing question In the minds of
many Democrats as well as many conser
vative Republicans throughout the
state of Pennsylvania te-day. There
are elements entering into the guber
natorial contest Iu the coming election
which It b well for our Domeoratlc load lead
ers te consider. The unsavory record
or Dolamater, te whom Indications point
conclusively as the Republican candidate
Ter governor, as well as the methods being
ompteyed te brlug about this nomination,
willcause many Intelligent, conservative
Republicans te support the Democratle
candldate If said candidate Is at all ac
ceptable te thorn. They de net ask
us te nominate anyene In whom we
as Democrats have net entire confi
dence as te their Demecracy, but they
simply ask that we nominate ene who will
be "no mans man" and who when
elected will be govorner of the state and
work for the best Interests of the whole
people The man who abeve all ethers
satisfies the conditions Is Rebert E.
Pattlsen. We may speak as highly as we
llke of the availability and qualifications
of ether candidates, but it remains a fact
Itidlsputable that wtille no ene ei an tun
prominent names mentioned can poll mero
Demouratle votes than Rebert K. Pattlsen;
there Is no ene who can poll nearly an
many Republican votes as he. He retired
from the governorship or Pennsylvania
popular and honored because or his fidelity
te duty, and he would outer the contest
again with a prestige unoqtialed by any
ethor moiitlenod. A goldeu opportunity
awaits the Democracy or this state. Can
we as a party rise abeve the petty personal
jealousies which te often endanger success?
lr we can and de the next Democratic state
convention wilt nonilnate the next gev
orner of Pennsylvania and his name will
be Rebert K. Pattlsen.
