PARKER TO SPEAK
IN THE CAMPAIGN
Heads Democratic List of 3,009, luclucl
irig Cleveland and Bryun.
Three thousand orators are to be turn
ed loose in the doubt'ul States by the
Democratic campaigu managers the last
week in September. Announcement was
made at national headquarters yesterday
by Daniel McConville. head of the speak
ers' bureau, of the list of speakers, de
cleared to l»e the strongest ever engaged
in a National campaign.
The list is headed by Judge Alton 15.
Parker. This is the first oilicial an
nouncement that has been made that the
candidate is to speak. Where and when
or how many speeches lie will make was
not explained, but it was said definitely
that he would participate in the speak
ing campaign. It was explained later
that his speaking plans are not definitely
made. In the formal statement issued
by Mr. McConville it was said:
•'lt is known that Judge Alton V».
Parker, ex-President Grover Cleveland
and William J. Bryan will each take
part in the campaign."
It was declared that about every em
inent speaker-oil the roster of tne Dem
ocratic party had enlisted. From one
end of the country to the other they will
be heard from tin last week in Septem
ber until election day. Mr. Cleveland
is expected to make a few speeches in
the East, the number not having yet.
VOICE STRANGE TO OWNER
Never Sounds Exnctly the Some us It
Does to Friends.
That a mau docs not hear his own
voice as all the rest of the world hears
it is shown by an interesting experi
ment described by Dr. L. Laloy in
La Nature of Paris, says the Literary
Digest. Kays this writer:
"If a person records on a phono
graph a few sentences pronounced by
himself, together with others by his
friends, and causes the machine to
reproduce these at the end of a brief
period, it generally happens that he
easily recognizes his friends' voices,
but not his own. On the other hand,
the friends recognize his voice per
fectly. This singular fact proves that
every one hears his own voice differ
ently from others.
"As is remarked by Professor Ex
ner, the difference must lie in the
quality of the tone. It must be re
membered that one hears his own
voice not only through the air, as do
his auditors, but across the solid parts
situated between the organs of speech
and those of hearing. The sound
thus produced has a different timbre
from that conducted to the ear by the
"We may show this as follows:
Take the end of a wooden rod between
the teeth and pronounce a vowel con
tinuously. Let the other end be al
ternately taken between the teeth and
released by another person, who at
the same time stops his ears. The
latter will find that every time he
seizes the rod in his teeth the sound
becomes stronger than when i! reaches
his car through air alone, and has a
different quality. The experiment
may bo varied by applying a wooden
rod to the larynx of the person ob
served and touching it from time to
time to the observer's own larynx.
As in the preceding case, it will be
found that its passage through a solid
body augments the intensity of the
sound and modifies its quality."

So impressed is Harry. Wertfall, of
Portland, Oregod, with the noble
work being done by the Women's
Christian Temperance Union of this
place in suppressing the profanity
that was formerly rampant upon the
streets of that city that he has written
the president of the society asking if
there is not some marriageable mem
ber of it who wants a good home and
a good husband.
Wertfall recently saw an account
in the papers of how the woman had
induced the Berwick Council to pass
an ordinance forbidding swearing up
on the street. He writes under date
of August 27:
"I see that you are going to curb
the use of profanity; that is right.
Now, while you arc doing that try to
see if you can find nie a wite. Ido
not smoke or use profane language,
and am :!0 years old and good looking.
Please show this to your society and

good husband for her. With many

Mr. Cleveland's Offer to
Alton B. Parker.
Nut many persons are aware of the
fact that Alton B. Parker WHS offered
a place in the first administration of
President Cleveland. McCready Sykes
tells the story in the 4t Greenbag n as
"Parker was in close and intimate
relations with the Albany Regency of
latter days, and was a warm friend
of President Cleveland. Early in
188/), ho was summoned by a tele
gram to Washington, where Presi
dt nt Cleveland offered him the post of
First Assistant Postmaster-General of
the United Slates. The salary was
live thousand dollars. Parker thought
the matter over, and although his
salary as Surrogate was only three
thousand dollars, he promptly de
clined the place, as he feared that to
withdraw from the active life of his
own county would mean the lo s of
his practice, which gave every prom
ise of being established within a very
♦'Somewhat surprised ami a little
disappointed, Mr. Cleveland sent for
Mr. Vilas the Postmaster-General,
saying, 'Vilas, Parker says he has a
three thousand .dollar salary as Sur
rogate of Ulster County and is build
ing up a law practice, and he can't
afford to take a live thousand dollar
'• 'That's strange, 1 said Vilas. *1
left a twenty thousand dollar practice
to take an eight thousand dollar place
in the Cabinet,'
11 'Yes, 1 retorted Parker; 'and if 1
had been making twcuty thousand
dollars a year for ten years, 1 should
not mind taking a live thousand dollar
place in Washington.'
"Later in the same year the offer
was authoritatively made to Parker
of the Democratic nomination for
Lieutenant Governor of Now York,
but this, too, he declined.
■'The time was at band when Park
er should definitely retire from poli
ties, although he was not yet half
through his thirties. Oil the urgent
solicitation of the Democratic leaders,
I'arker consented, in the autumn of
1885, to act as chaiiman of the Demo
cratic Executive Committee in the
State campaign. That campaign is
still spoken of as one of (lie most efli
cient and successful campaigns of the
past generation. With practically
no campaign funds, Parker fought an
uphill light wherein few hoped of
success, and ended the campaign
with a decisive victory. Here his
political service came to an end, for
in December of the same year, 1885,
he was appointed to a vacancy ou the
bench of the Supreme Court. In the
following year he was elected to a
full teim, the Republicans paying
him the compliitient of running 110
candidate. He was only thirty-five
The Motor Car.
(From the London Telegraph.)
The motor car is indeed making a
revolution both in town and country
life. House and land agents state
that people aie 110 longer unwilling
to rent mansions in districts formerly
regarded as inaccessible. With the
mo tor car's almost magic agency of
transport dwellers in the couutry
cease to consider <he number of miles
that a house may be from a railway
station or tolvn. A lady may do her
shopping iit a town twenty miles
away with as little trouble as she had
in visiting one live miles off by means
of a horse and trap. She may lunch
with a friend at forty miles distance
and return home comfortably to din
ner. The motor car has this advant
age over the train; that it takes the
traveller all the way from his start
ing point to luJ destination. There
fore, on a fifty-mile journey one may
travel as quickly by car as by train.
For although the train traveU fast
er—sometimes—that the car, the
time lost in getting to and from the
railway station at each end of the
journey annuals that gain. In jour
neying from London to Brighton, for
example, most people are so situated
that they could, without transgress
ing the legal limit, get from houso to
house by car in very little longer
time than by train, with the advan
tage of starting when they liked and

With k proniptitute unprecedented
in tho history of Pennsylvania's fi
nances, State Treasurer William l<.
Mnthuus last Thursday sent a check
for 41,200.000 to the oity of Philadel
phia, returning to thai city its share

paid into the treasury for personal
Never before has the payment been
made so promptly, never before has
such a largo check been drawn at the
State Treasury and only once before
has the payment of Philadelphia's
share of the tax been made in a lump
There is nothing to compel the re
payment of the money so quickly. As
a matter of fact, it generally drags
along for weeks or months. The only
occasion when but a little lime elapsed
between the receipt of the entire
amount and the repayment of the
portion due the city was several years
ago during Colonel Harnett's term as
State Treasurer Mathues preferred
to repay the fund as quickly as possi
ble and to send it to Philadelphia in a
lump instead of having the accounts
drag along and be split into small
amounts during the Fall and Winter.
It was said at the Treasury that
this check for $1,200,000 is the larg
est ever issued from that office.
The personal property lax was, ac
cording to the law, paid by Philadel
phia into the treasury only a few
days ago, the amount being $ 1,600,-
000. Under tho same law three
fourths of the mouey roverts to the
city and the other one-fourth remains
in the coffers of the State.

Too many merchants look upon ad
vertising as a scheme to help the
editor. With rural delivery and de
partment stores sending out tons of
advertising matter, the country
merchant must have the goods and
the prices and he must advertise or
get run over in the march of civiliza
tion. His rents are less, his help
ccsts less and be can compote with
the city retailer and pay his advertis
ing, too; and the time has come when
ho absolutely has to do it. The

At the Methodist Preachers' Meet

the slightest evidence there of the re
spectability claimed for it, in building
decorations, bar, bottles, customers or
atmosphere. 1 do not know what a
first-class saloon looks like, except lor
the glimpse I have had through
swinging doors, but in comparison I
should call the Subway Tavern a

PARKER ABOUT TO
May Goto New York for the Purpose-
Startling Rumors Concerning It.
Esopus, Sept. 12.-It is reported
that Mr. Parker will soon make tin
announcement of great political im
portance. About its nature there
were startling rumors, none of which
can bo confirmed. Mr. Parker him
self refuses to say anything except
that whatever statement or announce
ment he has to niuke will be made
when lie is ready to make it.
Ho may goto Now York for this
purpose within a few days.
In the mean time there are mauy
conflicting rumors, from which it is
safe only to make the modest predic
tion that there is going to be an im
portant change in the attitude and
In the series of important political
conferences which have been going
on at Itosemount for several days to
day's was given to David B. Hill. Mr,
Hill has persistently kept away from
a private conference with Mr. I'arker
ever since the good telegram to Shce
han and Mr. Sheehan's public state
ment that Judge Parker l.ad not tele
graphed on any subject to Mr. Hill at
The afar olTncss of I tic lolatlons be
tween Mr. Hill unci Mr. Parker has
been well known in poli ical circles,
also the fact that their ideas as to the
conduct of the campaign ami the
make up of the Statu tic ket «lid not
coincide. Kumor has gonj so far as
to affirm that this is a real reason for
Mr. Hill's announced withjrawed.
Mr. Hill arrived from Albany 011
the noon train, lie was (net by the
L'arker wagonette. The call was sud
den and had been quickly arranged
by Mr. Parker over the telephone af
ter last night's conference with
Messrs. Slicchan and Belmont, which
lasted until 2 o'clock.
Mr. Hill stayed until the evening
train to Albany. He refused to say
anything about the conference except
that it was not concerning the State
Burdette on the Saloon.
Robert J. Burdette, who is now
the popular pastor of a Baptist church
in Los Angeles, made the following
sturdy and sensible speech in that city
recently, before the W. C. T. U.:
"About the power of prohibitory
laws to prohibit—the laws of the
.State against murder do not entirely
prevent murder. But nevertheless, I
am opposed to licensing one murderer
to ever so many thousand persons,
even on petition of a majority of the
property-owners in the block, that we
may have all the murder that is de
sirable in the community under wise
regulations, with a little income for
the municipality. I believe in the
absolute prohibition of murder.
"The laws of the country prohibit
ing stealing do not entirely preveut
stealing. Nevertheless, lam opposed
to a high-license system of stealing,
provided that all theft shall be re
stricted to certain authorized thieves,
who shall steal only between the
hours of say 6 A. M.and 11:30 P.
M., except Sunday, when no stealing
shall be done except by stealth, en
trance to be made in all cases on that
day by the back door, tnd at the
thief's risk. I believe 111 laws that
absolutely forbid theft ntnny hour, or
on any day in the week.
"And, on the same ground, and
just as positively, do I believe in the
prohibition of the liquor traffic. And
I never said I didn't. And I did
say that I did. And I DO.
"I do say that the best way to
make a man a temperate man is to
teach him not to drink. But a saloon
is not a kindergarten ot sobriety.
Your town is uuder no obligation to
any saloon. All that it is, in respect
ability and permanent piosperity, it
has grown to be without the assist
ance of the liquor traffic.
"If the saloon men insist iu quot
ing me on this topic, let them com
mit this to memory, that they may
repeat it as they need it: Ido not
know one good thing about the saloon.
It is an evil thing that has not one
redeeming tiling in all its history to
commend it to good men. It breaks
the laws of God and man. It dese
crates the Sabbath; it profanes the
name of religion; it defiles public or
der; it tramples under foot the tendcr
est feelings of humanity; it is a moral
pestilence that blights the very at
mosphere of town and country; it is
a stain upon honesty; a blur upon
purity; a clog upon progress; a check
upon the nobler impulses; it is an in
centive to falsehood, deceit, and
' 'Search through the history of this
hateful thing, and read one page over
which some mother can how her grate
ful head and thank God for all the
saloon did for her boy. There is 110
such record. All its history 19 writ
ten in tears and blood, with smears of
i:hame and stains of crime, and dark
blots of disgrace." —Selected.
