Ks Chairman W. II. Andrews, Quay's
Chief nontenant. In Pefcstlnj the
Desires of the Farmers. Now Auks
Them to Help Him In a Crisis.
Special to the Scranton Tribune.
HarrUburg, July 5.-The frtinds of
Senator Quay, notably ex-tftate Chair
man William H. Andrews, of Crawford
county, are endeavoring to make It ap
jiear that In the present contest In the
Ke publican party Senator Quuy Is the
only friend of the UraiiKer. They
boast that his strenK!h lies prlnvlpally
with the Xarinintr element of Pennsyl
vania; that the farmers and members
of the State Oranges are his most ard
ent adherents. On this basis they are
endeavoring to secure the Granger sup
port for Senator Quay In the present
If Senator Quay Is the friend of the
farmers of 'Pennsylvania his friendship
must have been of swift and sudden
growth, since June 8, when the late
legislature adjourned. During the last
session of the legislature Senator Quay
was not only not the friend of the
Granger, tout he used all the prestige
of his name, and all of the political
power that he possessed In that legis
lature to defeat the expressed wishes
wf the farmers of the state. This state
ment is borne out by the facts and is
substantiated by members of the legis
lature. One bill which received the conspicu
ous and undivided support of every
farmer, and farmer's friend In the last
legislature, was what was known as
the revenue tax conference LIU. Dis
tinguished members of the state grange
and others from the rural districts were
members of the conference which for
mulated the revenue tax conference bill.
Leonard Rhone, grand master of the
State Orange; Hon. Frank Moore,
member of the legislature from Brad
ford county, and Hon. Jerome 0. NUes,
of Tioga county, were conspicuous rep
resentatives of the farmers In this state
who helped to frame, ar.d who voted
for the passage of this bill.
yuay IK: rested the Tax Hill.
Senator Quay defeated that bill In the
He gave the orders to his followers,
and It was defeated after one of the
most stubborn fights on the part of the
farmers ever known in the history of
Pennsylvania's legislature.
In the defeat of that bill the men who
are now conspicuous as the" leaders of
Senator Quay's faction were the men
who compassed Its killing. It was dis
tinctly a farmer's measure. The ten of
thousands of names of grangers which
were attached to petitions asking for
the passage of the measure, the en
dorsement of Pomona granges,' even
the petition of the State grange, asking
for Us passage, were Ignored by Sena
tor Quay.
To furnish a reason for thus tramp
ling on the wishes of the farmers of
Pennsylvania, Senator Quay enlisted
the aid of statisticians at Harrlsbu-rg,
who were his friends. Dy an elaborate
series of arguments they presumed to
show that the bill would not furnish as
much revenue as the present law. In
less than six weeks these statisticians
endeavored to prove that men who
stand highest In point of authority on
tax laws In Pennsylvania, men who
had given them years of careful
thought and study, and who had heard
representatives of all classes upon the
subject, had made a series of inexcus
able blunders.
The facts are that after Mr. Quay's
statisticians had made their statement
Joseph D. Weeks, of Pittsburg; Stuart
Patterson, the most eminent lawyer
of Philadelphia; Leonard Rhone, grand
master of the state grange, and Gen
eral Nlles, simply tore their arguments
to tatters. They proved that the fig
ures from the auditor general's office,
furnished at Senator Quay's orders
were entirely misleading and were fur
nished for a purpose.
These firmer on the tax conference
had no political end to subserve. They
were laboring for the people. But Sen
ator Quay's orders, given through ex
Chairman Andrews, were all powerful
and the measure was defeated.
Risked (Jusy to Pass It,
Before the defeat of the bill hnd been
finally accomplished a delegation of
farmers and others favorable to this
granger bill visited Senator Quay at
'his home In Beaver and asked him to
throw the power of his Influence toward
the passage of the measure. Senator
Quay told them that If his statisticians
showed that the bill would bring In as
much revenue, or more than the present
law, that he would be In favor of It; If
not, die would be against It.
That was all the satisfaction that the
statesman from Beaver would give
them. He knew at that time Just what
report his statisticians would bring In.
He know that their figures on the face
would be unfavorable to the bill.
Even while the delegation of grangers
and friends of an equltaible tax law
wre hof-whln B'-nitrir Quny nt his
home In Beaver to help them pass their
bill, he had resolved on Its defeat nnd
hid given orders accordingly, for Sen
ator Andrews, Deflator Orddy and other
Quay lieutenants In the legislature
were announcing . the fact to their
friends that the granger bill was
That Is how Senator Quay "played"
the grangers.
While he listened to the prayers of
the farmers, hls lieutenants In Harris
biv'g were passing the word around
that the farmers tax bill must he killed.
One of the remarkable things In con
nection with this fight on the confer
ence tax bill lies In the fact that, the
men who fought hardest' and longest
to help the farmers pass their bill were
the leading members from Philadelphia
and Pittsburg? Hon.' Frank Rlter, of
Philadelphia, rough for It even aft?r

New York. July 5. It. Q. Dun &
Co.'8 weekly review of trade tomorrow
will say:
Thjre is 6.657 commercial failures In
the first half of 1X95, against 7,(i:l in the
first half of 1894. and 6.401 In the first
half of 1S9H. These commercial fail
ures involved liabilities of $88,839,944
this year, against $101,793,306 lust year,
and $168,864,444 in 1893.
The midsummer reports from all
commercial centers are of especial ln
terts, covering the questions on which
the future business depends. They In
dicate distinctly better crop prospects
than other official or commercial ac
counts, a marked Increase in retail dis
tribution of products, and active de
mand for goods, and a general enlarge
ment of the working force, with some
advance In the wages of more than
half a mllHon hands. At the same time
thy-show that-the rapid advance In
prices has somewhat checked buying
of a few classes of products. In every
part of the country the outlook for fall
trade Is considered bright.
Nothing disturbs the money market,
the government begins the new fiscal
year with more than the required gold
reserve, and the disbursement of near
ly $80,000,000 by corporations In interest
and dividends will stimulate business In
many branches. The latest agreement
of railroad presidents Is treated at Chi
cago as meaning more than usual, and
shipments have .Increased, amounting
for four weeks to 208,877 tons east bound
against 187,309 last year, and 208,118 In
learnings of railroads In June thus
far reported amount to $23,080,870 In the
United tates and are 6.8 per cent, larg
er than last year, but 15.7 per cent, less
than In 18U3. The advance In Iron con
tinues and the Thomas company has
raised anthracite No. 1 another dollar
per ton. Comparison of prices for vari
ous Iron products shows an advance
ranging from 72.2 per cent, since Febru
ary for wire nails to 7.1 per cent, for
anthracite pig, and in all kinds averag
ing 22 per cent. The demand and rise
have come so suddenly that even while
the first order for shipment of steel bil
lets to Kurope, given some time ago,
when prices were low, Is toeing an
nounced, the price here has advanced
from $17 In April to $22.25, or about 31
per cent.

Philadelphia, July 6. Senator Quay
said tonight that Instead of returning
directly to his home at Beaver when he
left here on Saturday as he expected to
do at first, he will go to Brranton on
Sunday afternoon. There he will see
his friends In Lackawanna county and
from there make a brief tour 6f the
state encouraging his partisans before
he returns to Beaver. The delegates
of Delaware couirty held a meeting to
night at Chester ond unanimously
voted to support Quay.
Senator Quay this evening expressed
himself as well satisfied with his fight,
and confident that he would win, al
though he added In a somewhat re
gretful tone that he would have been
better plwiNed If Mayor Warwick was
upon his side. Senator Quay has ad
vised the senatorial Investigation com
mittee to accept the offer of the citi
zens Municipal association of $20,000 to
defray the costs of the Investigation.

Philadelphia, July S. Miss Margaret
May Thompson, a professional nurse,
today brought suit In- the common pleas
court against Dr. (lllbert J. I'aleii, a
well-known Philadelphia physician, for
$25,000 ditmuges for alleged breach of
promise. On June It Dr. I'ul.-n, whose
mother is u sister of the lute Jay Clould,
was nctrrled to Miss Aduinson, of ler
niuutown. Miss Thompson, rtio will be
21 years of age on Aug. 31, Is the daugh
ter of Samuel IM. andlluorglana Thomp
son, of Huntingdon, I'a. She has been
a ( professional nurse In this city since
July. 1893.
IMIss Thompson, In her afliduvlt,
states that while employed as a nurse
at the Philadelphia I-yiiig-ln charity
she -became acquainted with the de
fendant In iMurch, 1894. He Immediate
ly paid marked addresses .to her, and
on July 9, 1894, agreed to marry her as
soon us he would complete his medical
studies at the Hahnemann 'MeHlcal col
lege. For some time after that, the
complainant avers, his addresses con
tinued with much ard'ir. -Miss Thomp
son declares the defendant has broken
his promise by marrying Miss May
Aleanor Adumson. She alleges that
she Is In no way responsible for the
broken engagement, as she has always
conducted herself In a ladylike and
proper manner, and that the defendant
Intends to presently leave this country
to complete his medical studies In Eu
rope. Judge Gordon Issued a capias for Or.
'Palen's apprehension, with special ball
fixed at $1,000. The Palen-Adamson
wedding was a notable affair. To at
tend the nuptials, Mr. and Mrs. Edwin
Ciould brought a party from New York,
making the Journey by coach and re
turning the same -way. Or. Palen is a
son of Dr. Gilbert E. iPalen, of this city,
a wealthy practitioner.
Palen Is Surprised.
Dr. Palen was seen by a reporter this
afternoon In the office of his bankers,
whither he had gone to purchase letters
of credit, to be used In his trip abroad,
as he has engaged passage for himself
and wife on the steamship Southwark,
which will leavo this city tomorrow
The young physician was asked for
a statement as to the charge pre
ferred by Miss Thompson. He was ap
parently surprised and said: "I am
greatly surprised that this matter has
been made public. But It la as well now
as later on. In ' reference to Miss
Thompson's suit against me I wish to
Bay that her charge ls false in every
particular. I not only did not promise
her marriage, but was never on Buch
terms of Intimacy with her as to give
her the slightest ground to suppose
that a marriage between her and my
self was either remotely possible or
even to be contemplated for a moment.
It Is a case of blackmail,, pure and sim
ple." Dr. Palen's lawyer denied that his
client and i.Mhss Thompson had ever
been anything but friends, and In proof
of this assertion showed the ' reporter
a letter from Miss Thompson to Dr.
Palen. The letter was written to Dr.
Palen at the time of his marriage and
concluded as follows:
"I offer you congratulations, and
wish you and Mra. Palen happiness
and long life."
The letter was written In a neat, pret
ty hand, and bore as Its signature
"That letter," said Lawyer Keater
In conclusion, "proves that Miss
Thompson only conceived the bringing
of this suit sines hi marriage, when
she discovered by the reports what his
connections are."
She Is Nearly killed by the Beast Before
i Kcscned.
Mt. Carmel, Pa.. July G. A wildcat
yesterday attacked Mrs. Andres Cain
and seriously wounded her before she
was rescued from the furious beast
by her son. She resides at German
town, three -miles from this place. Mrs.
Cain was gathering eggs In the hen
nery whtyi she was startled by a low
growl from a corner of the little "build
ing. She looked and beheld two bright
eyes glaring at her and she Instantly
turned to run. At the same moment
the huge wildcat sprang upon her and
began to tear and claw at her flesh, at
the same time giving vent to the most
unearthly screeches.
The woman fought off the anlmat
bravely, shouting for help, and suc
ceeded In grasping It by the throat. It
tore long strips of flesh from her arms
and lacerated her face and hands In a
fearful manner. Nearly all of her
clothing was torn away. Mrs. Cain's
son had heard her call and rushed to
her assistance with a shotgun. Then
the beast fled. The young man fired
and shot off one of the wildcat's legs
and then beat the animal to death
with stones. It was three feet long
and weighed twenty pounds.
