A SHORT LIVED TlilOIPII
C.nt this victorv wis short-live 1.

grand rally of the lower enders. H

on donble quick to r-1n force the wav
ering; and when fit 2. JO in the after
noon, after an agonizing wait outside
the convention hall in a temperature
strongly sn-igeative of sheol, tno doors

Bpiring delegates were a second ti in
permitted to surge in, it soon became
apparent, from the complacency nuinng
whom was Field Marshal Keck, th it
the lines had all been sirengtnened and
that some of tho "amateur" scouting
parties had captured a number of Strug
glers from the enemy's camp.
And then happened a thing that il
lustrates vividly the superior chivalry
and liberality of the Republican party.
While tue sweltering convention was
waiting for the report of belated com
mittees, speakers were culled uuon,
and among them were two Democrats,
who frankly proclaimed their political
eccentricity and yet were npulau led to
the echo when (successful in witticism
or r partee. Indeed, had they been
Republicans of national renown, they
could not have received a more hospit
able welcome; and even when one
-went somewhat to an extreme in op
position to the partisan ciinplexion of
the convention, he was permitted to
complete his daring sally and cordially
applauded when he concluded.
TWO OKATOI'JCAu DEMOCRATS.
The first of these speakers was Dis
trict Attorney John M. Gurinm. of
Nunticoko. When asked wuut he
could say about the Republican party
he promptly retorted tuat he could say
nothing ubont it except that if be were
running ngainst it, the convention's
nominee lor congress would not be in
eight. Later on, Playwright Daniel
L. Hurt, just returned from un outing
in the Catskills, was solicited to amuso
the nssemhlage, and he did it to per
fection, He began by quoting David
B Hiil's famous purasa, "I uiu a Demo
cratl" and declared that if Luzerne
Republicans didn't want to hear him
make a D. mocratic speech they should
not have culled upon him. This
was the preface to t spirited expjsi
tion of Democracy, mainly humor
oua iu its character, but sufficiently
rabid to exhibit in conspicuotm relief
the Republican liberality which toler
ated it. Mr. Hart might have added
another famous speech to the list of
great partisan orations had he not in
advertently ucensed General Grant ol
having been a Democrat "befouh do
wnh." This excited the ire of a vener
able delegate in one of the rear seats
and, with capillary portiorros vibrating
in indignation, he aroso and launched
forth a vehement denial. A verbal duel
at long range ensued, to the infinite
amusement of tho onlookers; aud altor
a vaiu effort to withstand the rural
veteran's wrath Mr. Hart grucefully
FCLLEIt's MASTERLY EFFORT.
Following the permanent orgnnizi

Chairman Sliouk's retirement in fav r
of Dr. W. G. Weaver, nominating
speeches were called for. 1'hnt of H.
H. Fuller, plucinir in nomination the
of Morgan li. Williams, was the ora

the vermiform appendix, which, wh-n
swollen into the disease called political
appendicitis, had once before called
for surgical excision of the man he

a repetition of that treatment, the con
vention fairly rose to its feet wi h
laughter ana cheering. In the inor"
seri uis phns 'S of his Uress, Mr. Ful
ler referred most i ff ctively to th
spurious claims of Iliim to the friend
ship of the laboring classes, aud said
that the kind of d.-inago-ism which,
for political t ff 'ct, lauded poverty as a
virtue aud lir.nded property as a
crime, aud which, instead of men of
sagacity, intelligence an 1 merit, tilled
the halls of legislation with P apulists,

Joun Leisenring's life were passed iu
goou, tiaru work. Although his lather
had already laid the foundation of an
ample fortune, the son was never an
idler, either by disposition or from
choice. In fact, the prudent discirillue
of the parent would soon have put a
stop to uny juvenile inclinaiiou on
John's part to smrk work, had there
been such. The ambition of Mr. L I-
senring, sr., was to rear a family pos-
