Nothing Has Ever Equalled the Enthusiasm
of Western Republicans.
"I have been through a number of
lively campaigns." said A. J. Colborn,
Jr., yesterday, who had Just returned
from a speaking tour of Allegheny,
Beaver and Lawrence counties, "but 1
want to say that I have never seen such
a universal feeling of party enthusiasm
as is to be witnessed at the Republican
mass meetings in the strong industrial
districts in and near Pittsburg. The
crowds that gather there are simply
enormous; and the spirit they manifest
makes me think that all estimates of
General Hastings' plurality next month
will be far exceeded by the reality.
"Just one instance. The other day
they Dined me to speak in an old skat
lng rink In what is known as the Bouth
Side of Pittsburg. I was afraid there
would be a small attendance, as I was
the only speaker from a distance,
When the doors were opened, 8,000 steel

It wasn't so much my talk; that was
only ordinary. It was Just simply the
vent of pent-up enthusiasm for the Re
publican cause and of dissatisfaction
with the way tnings nave Deen going
since the Democrats took hold."
Week after next, at the urgent solid
tatlon of David Martin, Mr. Colborn
will' go to Philadelphia and remain
there, delivering speeches nightly In the
different wards, until a few days before

Magnificent Meeting Held in Nutter's Hull
on Alder Street.
South Side Republicans last night at
tested their party fealty beyond all
question by the unanimous and enthu
siastic reception given to the speakers
at the mass meeting In Natter's hall, on
Alder street. The hall, although spa
cious, could not accommodate the num
ber that sought access.
At 7.30 Germania band from the bal
cony opened the meeting with an over
ture. Charles Neuls was chairman
and Attorney John M. Harris was the
first speaker. He paid a tribute to each
Charles B. Krelm, of Philadelphia,
spoke after Mr. Harris, and his remarks
in German were frequently applauded.
The drift of his talk was on the relative
effect of tariff and free trade.
The next speaker was Congressman J.
A. Scranton. Mr. Scranton's speech was
a ringing declaration of the policy of
protection. He greeted his hearers not
as Republicans, but as fellow-protectionists.
He said he was no calamity
howler, but could not pass blindly the
action of the party now in power. The
Democrats are rsponslble for idle mills
and suspended Industries. Mr. Scranton,
in conclusion, prophesied that the ma
jority for General Hastings would roll
up to 250,000 votes.
Cundldate John R. Jones was the next
sneaker introduced. He reviewed the
work of each aspirant for favor at the
hands of the Republican party; what
work each one had done to entitle him
to recognition. Mr. Jones' speech was
eloquent and well delivered. The con-
luiling speech was delivered ly it.

Eulogy on Mr. Lclscnring.
The chairman announced to the asso
elation the death of E. B. Leisenring,
the vice-president. After an address by
Secretary Simpson, In which he related
the Important part taken by Mr. Lels
enrlng In the negotiations which led to
a renewal of the contracts between the
Individual operators and the Lehigh
Valley railroad, and also the interest
which Mr. Leisenring had always shown
in the organization of the association
and its policy and aims, the following
resolutions were adopted:
Resolved. That In the death of Vice-
President Edward B. Leisenring, the
Anthracite Coal Operators' association
loses one of its most faithful officer
and warmest friends. Identified with
the anthracite coal trade all his life,
hrouuh his knowledge, energy and in
fluence freely exerted on behalf of all
trade interests which hud a claim upon
his attention, and by his business sa
gacity and personal character he won
for himself a leading and enviable posi
tion in all trade councils. Born In
Mauch Chunk 49 years ago, son of the
late John Leisenring, who, during his
lifetime, was prominently identified
with the development of the Lehigh
Coal and Navigation company. Mr.
Leisenring was made president of that
company a year or more ago. vi nue
Mr. Leisennngs business ventures
brought him Into prominence in the
slate, lumber and other Industries In
many states, it was as a leader in tne
mining of anthracite coal that he will
be best remembered. In company with
the trade at large, this association feels
the loss of his services, which were
valuable beyond estimate. Careful In
his business methods, yet bold when
occasion required It; prompt in fulfilling
every duty; possessed of that true po
liteness which comes from a kind neart;
always exhibiting that kind considera
tion for the rights and feelings of other
which distinguish the gentleman, Mr.
Leisenring, as a man of business and a
man of character, will long be remem
bered by his friends nnd associates.
This association gratefullly puts on rec
ord its recognition of tho valuable ad-
vice and warm friendship snown ov
Vice-President Leisenring during the
organization of the association, and ot
the active interest which he continued
to take in its objects and aims till his
Resolved, That as an expression of
sympathy for the loss which this as
sociation, as well as the whole trade,
has sustained in the death of Mr. Leis
enring, these resolutions be spread
upon the minutes and a copy, appro
priately prepared, be presented to the
bereaved family.
Matter of Insurance.
Statistics reported by the fire in
surance committee showed the actual
losses during the last live years on
breakers and engine houses to have
averaged $1.40 per $100 of insurance an
nually, being about $1 per $100 of in
surance lower than the usual rates
charged by tho Insurance companies.
A very interesting paper was reaa
by E. L. Fuller on the brenking ot
grate coal into smaller sizes, which elic
ited a great deal of discussion. The
subject will be taken up again at the
next meeting.
Addresses on the state of trade were
made by Messrs. Watklns and Ely, and
on motion of Mr. Jermyn thanks were
voted to Mr. watklns lor nis moors
on behalf of the assoclatino. A paper
by T. L. Greene was read on the sub
ject of better anthracite statistics.

purposes. He would settle the case only

They Attempted to Tear Down the House
of Mrs. Mary McConncll Because She
Would Sot Admit Them.
Mrs. Mary McConnell, who resides in
a little house on the road between Dal-
ton and La Plume, has had some decid
edly interesting experiences during the
last few weeks.
Some time ago she was deserted by
her husband, but continued thereafter
to live, with her 16-year-old daughter,
in the house that had been the home ot
herself and husband. Occasionally she
had young lady visitors and some ot
the young men of the neighborhood
were wont to pay a visit to her home to
spend the evening.
hhe disliked the calls of some of these
young men and about three weeks ago
whn they came to her house in an in
toxicated condition one night, she re
fused to admit them and they proceeded
to riddle the windows with stones. A
week ago last Saturday night they
again called on her. hut. the door did
not open at their knock. Thoroughly
Incensed, they made an assault on
Mrs. McConnell's domicile and tore out
the greater part of one side of the build
ing, rendering it uninhabitable.
Mrs. McConnell, several days later,
came to this city and swore out a war
rant before Alderman Wright for th6
arrest of George D. Murse, Edward
Ryan, William Toner and Patrick
O'Malla, whom she charged with being
the leaders in the work of demolishing
her house. She returned to her home
to get an officer to serve the warrant,
and after several days wrote to Mr.
Wright, telling him to hold the warrant
he had Issued. In the meantime she
swore out another warrant before Jus
tice of the Peace Feohley, of Waverly.
The thoroughly alarmed young men at
once begun to make every effort to have
the case settled and negotiations are
now pending.
Report has it that the attempt to
tear down Mrs. McConnell's house was
Instigated by a number of women of the
neighborhood who, it appears, did not
look upon the lady and her daughtei
with much favor. The building has been
repaired and Mrs. McConnell is again
Installed in it.
