'FrECJAL TELEGRAM TO THIDISPATCJM
Hahbisbubg, September 26. The Union
Prohibitory League Convention prosecuted
its business to-day very expeditiously, con
sidering the difficulties which appeared to
environ most of the delegates. Kearly all
who made speeches while the committees
were preparing work for the convention
ireely admitted their inability to suggest
any practical plan to make the league a
factor in promoting the cause of temper
ance. The convention contained a considerable
number of active third party Prohibitionists
who would have been delighted if their can
didate tor State Treasurer hsd received a
direct indorsement. Other delegates were
just as anxious that no action should be
taken looking like support of any of the
three candidates in the field. Others again
appeared utterlv at sea as to what course
should be pursued in the matter of making
a choice from the several aspirants for State
A PLATFOEM EASIXT MADE.
The Committee on Resolutions had a har
monious meeting, and the platform was
adopted nithout a hitch. This the Chajr
man, Horace Geiger, of Philadelphia,
thought a good omen, but after it had been
read VT. H. Bros! us, who a few years ago
was a member of the House trom Lancaster
county, made an attack on the plank which
required the record of the several candidates
for State Treasurer on the liquor question to
be printed, in order that the members of the
league might arrive at a proper decision as
to whom they should support. Brssius
thought this plank was an indirect delara
lion in favor of Mr. Johnston, the third
party candidate for State Treasurer, and
wanted it dropped trom the platform, but
the convention did not take kindly to his
suggestion, and even voted down a proposi
tion to consider tbe resolutions seriatim, the
purpose of which was to have a separate
vote on the obj -ctionable plank.
PROHIBITION ABOVE ALT
A. C. Rankin and B. C. Christy, of Alle
gheny, both made speeches in favor of sub
ordinating party aflhhations, if necessary,
to the success of prohibition, the latter
stating that he had never scratched a Re
publican ticket except once, but that here
after he would vote lor men who represented
the principles of the league, without regard
to party. The plutlorm was adopted with
an immaterial alteration, without a dissent
ing voice. After stating that 575,000,000
are paid annually by the people of this State
lor intoxicating liquors, without any return
of value, the platform says the constitu
tional amendment failed for a number of
reasons, chief of which was tha; many
temperance people believed the existing
laws gave greater promiseof relief "a delu
sion dissipated ten days after the election
bv the astounding decision of the Supreme
Court of Pennsylvania, which, il final, will
permanently fasten this bondage upon oar
great cities, if not upon the whole Common
wealth." ONE THING DEMANDED.
The platform demands the earliest possi
ble enactment of laws under which the
voice of the people will be made effective in
the 29 counties which voted for prohibition,
and says that while the league does not aim
to unite its members in any particular
party, ii recognizes tne lact mat political
measures are indispensable to the end it
The platform proclaims in favor of the
election ot such candidates for public office,
without respect to party, as will best repre
sent the principles of the league, and all its
members are advised to inquire diligently
into the character, record and purposes of
all candidates for office, and prove their
principles by their votes. The final resolu
tion, which caused several discusssions in
the convention, provides for an investiga
tion into the records of the three candidates
for State Treasurer.
Samuel Collins, of Pittsburg, Chairman
of the Committee on Educational "Work,
made a long report, suggesting plans for the
distribution of prohibition literature, in
clading a lecture bureau.
MONEY THAT'S NEEDED.
After Captain W. AV. "Wallace. Chair
man of the Finance Committee, announced
that 5,000 were wanted to defray expenses
of the league the coming vear, $1,000 were

Lean; Mr. "Welsh for Chester county; John
1. Dravo, for Beaver, and A. "W. .Tap.tuin
for Dauphin. While contrihntinn. ,
being registered many delegates left the
ball, and President Kynett remarked that
collections usually throw a coldness on the
proceedings of a convention.
The number ot delegates in the convention
at no time was over 110. To-nighta number
of addresses were made under the auspices
of the league in the hall of the House.

AJAX AS A PLUMKEB.
He Failed to Meet Prof. GUkeson and tbe
Pen Got Away With the Sword A Very
One-sided Debate, Indeed.
Sewickley was on tiptoe of expectation
lact night, it having beeD arranged that
Prof. Charles Gilkeson, ofSewickIey, and
Statesman Ajax Jones, of the Pittsburg
Mayor's office, would settle definitely and
for all time the question as to whether the
pen or the sword is the mightiest weapon in
the hands of those trained in their use.
The debate was arrayed to take place in
Choral Hall, under the auspices of the
Sewickley Gymnastic Association. Prof.
Gilkeson was arranged in full evening
dress, and though it was the correct thing
in the matter of toilet, it impeded him sadly
in his gestures, which, by the way, were
very fine, having been perfected under the
tutelage of Mr. Erskine. Prof. Gilkeson
was loaded to the muzzle, and the treat
promised to be immense.
But Ajax came not, and as the minutes
sped the audience became restive. Ajax had
essayed to maintain the reputation of the
sword, and was known to have made his ap
pearance at the gate at the Allegheny sta
tion. The people had paid their money to see
the show, and Prof. Gilkeson and his back
ers being honest men, were determined to
reduce the disappointment to the minimum,
So a colored combination composed of
Messrs. Ward, Harrison and Henderson
sang some sonns,af ter which the general man
ager of the athletic association declared
the lists open, giving notice to Ajax and
other sons of Mars that they must either put
up or shut np.
Prof. Gilkeson then shied his castor into
the ring and shouting "Ajax" three times
in stentorian tones, taunted the opposition
with their attempt to scare him off bv ih
exhibition of a carcass. He next proceeded
to speak of Ajax as a man of straw, as a man
of paper and as Prof. Gilkeson's similes
soared Ajax finally became a figment of tne
flimsiest kind of tissue paper. Not to allow
the audience to be entirely disappointed.
Prof. Gilkeson recounted the triumphs of
the pen, beginning with the graven tablets
of the law written by the finger of Omnipo
tence on Mt. Sinai, and winding up with a
recital of the triumphs of Mrs. E. D. E. N.
Soutbworth. But Prof. Gilkeson's gestures
were the main part of the entertainment
They cannot De described.
The judges, Messrs. J. K. Fleming, J. T.
ifevin and W. W. Scott, awarded the laurel
wreath to Prof. Gilkeson, according honor
able mention to H. W. Whitesel, usher.
The audience was so well satisfied with
.uc cubciMtuiucuk luafa aiuiuugu we man
ager offered to refund the entrance fees there
were no applications for them.
Judge Over was so affected that Jamaica
gineer was prescribed bv Mr. W. W. Scott
with a dash of '"suthin' 5 stronger, but the.
judge insisted that catnip tea would relieve
him. and refused stimulants.
