MR. JAMES HIGGINS, an old citizen
of Venango township, this county,
died suddenly at his home, near Hill
lard, last week. He was 83 years
old and had resided on the farm
on which he died for 50 years.
THE Clarion Republican - Gazette
states that W. A. Beer, member of the
Legislature from that county, has been
engaged in teaching school at Callans
burg in that county during the whole
of the extra session, only occasionally
spending a day in Harrisburg so as
keep on the pay roll.
CORRESPONDENTS in sending their
commnnications to this office should
be sure they have paid the necessary
amount of postage on the same. Fre
quently we have to pay extra postage
at the office here, in one case this week.
It is rather hard that publishers should
have to pay extra postage in addition
to all else they do gratis.
W* notice that our former fellow
citizen, Col. Archibald Blakelev, of
Pittsburgh, is charged with complicity
in the Murraysville, Westmoreland
county riot, that resulted in the loss
of human life. We hope the charge
against him may not prove a serious
one. A full account of that riot—about
the ownership of a gas well—will be
■een upon the first page of the CITIZEN
this week.
IT is now well ascertained that the
death of Mr. Henry Costello and his
mother, by the oversetting of the
wagon they were in last Friday night,
on the Kittanning road, near this place,
was caused by whisky. A flask was
found on the person of Costello. Whis
key was the cause not only of his own
but that of his mother's death. Could
there be a stronger prohibition argu
HON. JAMES G. BLAINE has written
letter concerning the rev
4)rce derived by the National Govern
ment from the tax on whisky. He
favors assigning the said revenue to and
among the States, on a different plan
merely from what is known as the
Wharton Barker plan. But to both
plans there are serious objections. We
will publish bis letter in our next and
may have something further to say on
the subject.
THE "False Prophet" is an Arab,
claiming direct descent from Moham
med. Recently, with an immense
army of followers, frenzied with his
religious zeal, he met and cut to pieces
the forces of the Egyptian Government
in upper Egypt, which were led by
English officers. This has alarmed
the Turkish Empire, which with Eng
land controls affairs in Egypt. The
"False Prophet" has literally "carried
the war into Africa," a great portion of
which he proclaims his intention of
rescuing from the present Turkish gov
Judge McDermitt Dead.
Hon. Arcus McDermitt, President
Judge of the Courts of Mercer county,
died at his residence in Mercer on Fri
day last, Nov. 30, at the age, it is
stated, of about 60 years. His funeral
last Sunday was attended by many
members of the Bar and other citizens
of this county. Judge McDermitt, al
though not just born within our coun
ty, yet spent most of his younger years
In Slipperyrock township, this county,
and in this town. He studied law
here with the late Hon. Charles C.
Sullivan, and after being admitted to
Bar here went to Mercer. There, by
laborious and strict attention to his
profession, he rose rapidly and was
elected Judge of the county in 1874.
He was a man of generous impulses
and many good qualities. Known to
many of our people the news of his
death was received with great regret.
Nearly two hundred of our citizens,
we learn, went on the train last Sun
day morning to attend his funeral.
Th : s body assembled on Monday
last. Carlisle, Democrat, of Kentucky, 1
was e'ected Speaker of the House. He
had previously (on Saturday last) re
ceived the caucus nomination of his
party for thit position over Randall,
of this State, and CuX, of New York.
The vote in caucus on fiist ballot,
stood, Carlisle 106; Randall 52; and
Cox 30. Personally Mr. Carlisle is
represented as a very good man, but
he was opposed by the friends of
Randall on account of his location and
his views on the tariff question. The
contest was quite au active if Dot a
bitter one. Politically it has a good
deal of significance, as the Speaker of
the body has the appointing of the
standing committees, which in Con
gress always shapes the legislation of
the House. Carlisle, we notice, re
ceived the votes of the Western and
Southern members pretty generally.
The proceedings of this Congress will
be looked to with great interest; and
we will endeavor to keep our readers
as fully posted on the same as possible.
The President's Message was de
livered as usual. In our next we will
give it, or at least those portions of it
that will be of interest to our readers.
On the McCalmont Farm, Butler
The strike on the McCalmont farm,
in the Bald Ridge district, last Friday>
is reported as the most Important one
yet had in all that territory.
This new well is known as No. 2,
on the McCalmont lands, which lay
in Butler township, and brings the
production within four miles of the
borough of Butler. When the sand
was reached last Friday the well filled
up 600 feet and immediately began to
flow to such extent that the boiler and
other machinery were removed and
preparation made for tankage, pipe,
etc. It is confidently expected to
make a 300 barrel well. The excite
ment has increased all through the
Bald Ridge district and it is now evi
dent that territory may be regarded as
permanent in its production.
This new strike is nearly two miles
north east, towards Butler, from the
first, Simcox well, and is a mile north
ward from the Scheidemantle No. 2,
on the Wallace farm, and the Agnew
well, on the Wallace farm. It is also
more than a mile towards Butler from
the Forest Oil Co.'s well on the Ren
frew farm. All these are good wells,
but this last strike by the Agnew,
agent, Company, bids fair to bo the
best yet obtained in the Bald Ridge
By Her Mother's Dying Bed.
The many friends of Mr. Edward P.
Johnston, of Brownsville, Pa., and
Miss Mollie E. Fullerton, of Freeport,
Pa.,were doubtless surprised to see the
announcement in yesterday's Tele
graph of their marriage, which occur
red at the residence of the bride's moth
er, Mrs. Jane Fullerton, on Thanksgiv
ing afternoon, at 2:30 o'clock. The
marriage ceremony was to have been
celebrated next summer, but Mrs.
Fullerton, Who was the widow of the
late William Fullerton, well known in
past years as the head of the Freeport
woolen mills, was ill, and it was at
her request the ceremony was perform
ed Thursday. It gave her special
cause to give thanks that her daugh
ter, who had been a constant compan
ion and untiring in her love and care
of her mother, would not be left alone.
The Rev. T. M. Thompson officiated,
and the ceremony was performed in
the presence of a few of the near rela
tives of the family of the bride, there
not being time euough to notify the
friends of the groom. Mr. Johnston
is a graduate of the Indiana Normal
School, was Principal of the Freeport
public school for two years and is now
in charge of the public school at
Brownsville, the home of his parents.
Wherever located he has made many
friends by his literary attainments and
social qualities. The bride has many
friends in the city as well as at her
home. She is an active member of the
Presbyterian Church, being the organ
ist, teacher of the young ladies' bible
class, a leader in the missionary aud
other work. The ceremony was per
formed none too late, for Mrs. Fuller
ton died last night and although the
young couple have such sad surround
ings now, their lives will no doubt be
bright and happy. Pitts. Telegraph.

What the People Think of the
Salary Bill.
The Senate nt Harrisburg finally
yielded to the demands of some of its
members for full pay during all the
extra session, including the recess
taken at its commencement and all.
The bill agreed upon last week is called
a "lump bill," and was put in that shape
in the expectation that the Governor
may not be able tojknow what is appro
priated according to law and what
is not according to law. That he will,
notwithstanding, veto it is confidently
The following from press notices
will give our readers an idea of the
present situation on the question.
The Senate yesterday reconsidered
and passed the Salary bill which was
defeated on Friday. As it now stauds
it provides full pay for every day from
the beginning of the session, including
the reces3 of ten days at the outset and
all the subsequent adjournments.
This measure cannot, however, be
accepted as embodying the deliberate
judgment of the Senate. It had been
so entangled in a parliamentary knot
that, under tht ruling of the presiding
officer, it could not be amended. It
thus was tied up in a thin Senate on
a light vote, and when the question
came up in a fuller body there was no
power to modify it. It had either to
be killed outright or passed as it was.
The Senate chose to pass it, and trust
for its correction to the Conference
Committee. It ought to have adopted
the bold course by killing it and then
taking a fresh start.
The House has shown itself eager to
secure the largest amount of pay, and
it may hasten to accept the Senate bill
as it stands. In that case the hope of
an amendment which should strip the
measure of its excessive allowance
would prove delusive. But the Sen
ate has made a grave mistake in pass
ing the bill as it is, and the House
would make a greater one in accepting
it. There is no justification or excuse
for such a grab. The Legislature
ought to have the pay which the law
gives it and to which members are
fairly entitled for the service actually
rendered. But that principle does not
warraut pay for the long recess taken
at the beginning, nor in the case of the
Senate for the time when it was only
nominally in session.
It will not pay to trifle with this
question. Members will find that an
inordinate grab which cannot be de
fended is the costliest business they
have undertaken. Let them deal with
the matter in a manly and hone9t way.
Take legitimate pay, but make no grab.
—Philadelphia Press.
The Democratic House exposed its
members and its party to just criticism
and vigorous resentment before the
election, by placing itself in the posi
tion of responsibility for the long pro
tracted session.
The Republicans had a fearful wea
pon against the Democrats on the cost
of the session and the apparent purpose
of the House to demand and receive
full pay for recesses and absentees, and
the Republican side of the campaign
was conducted mainly in contrasting
the economy of the Republican Senate
with the profligate Democratic House.
The election is now over and the
Republicans won; but where are the.
pledges given to the people by the
Republican leaders, including every
Republican Senator by formal public
address? After much censure of Dem
ocratic salary grabbing and a profu
sion of promises on the side of economy,
the Republican Senate makes the Dem
ocratic House respectable by getting
down to its level on the issue of legis
lative pay,
As the issue stands now, the salary
question presents Democratic pot and
Republican kettle equally black, except
that the Republican Senate has less
excuse than the Democratic House,
as it proclaimed ail effort or purpose to
legislate at an end nearly three months
ago. Both sides are bad enough, but
the darker shade belongs to the Kepub
lican Senate, as it professed more, did
less and now proposes to take full pay.
It is pot and kettle on the salary issue;
that's all! Philadelphia Times.
The Ledger. goes right to the mar
row of the question of legislative pay
when it says that "pay for sessions
actually held and for attendance at
them, and no pay to wilful absentees
or for sessions not held" is "the plain,
common sense, honest test with the
There are many worthy gentlemen
iu the present Legislature who hope to
retain the confidence and respect of the
people for future promotion. Let none
of them delude themselves with the
idea that they can take full pay for
this odious session that was unearned
by actual attendance upon the pretend
ed sessions of their respected bodies.
The people are more than disgusted
with the whole extra session business,
and they will hew to the line in the>r
reckoning on the question of unearned
pay. Don't forget it.
The Legislative appropriation bill
will doubtless pass both branches of
the Legislature to-day and likely ieach
the Governor before he takes his tea.
As every day's delay of the Executive
iu considering the bill threatens to
cost the sum of three thousand dollars,
Governor Pattison will readily see the
necessity of prompt action.
His veto message should be prepar
ed before he goes to bed to night. It
need not be long. The less of stump
speicb and the more of terse Saxon he
employs the m >re he will do for his
party, for himself and for the State,
and every departure from the one vital
point must weaken his deliverance.
Neither explanation nor apolocry will
cure or even temper past blunders,
they are fixed iu history and have done
their work Go at once to the mar
row of the salary grab and give the
Legislature a brief, incisive, patriotic
and wholesome essay to embellish the
chaplain's prayers to-morrow morning.

LONDON, NOV. 22.—A dispatch from
Cairo auuounces that General Hicks'
Egyptian army has been entirely de
stroyed in the Soudan by the forces of
El Siahdi, the false prophet. General
Hicks, Col. Farquarhar, Chief of Staff,
live English officers, two German offi
cers and O'Donovan, correspondent of
the Daily News, were among the slain
The forces of the False Prophet are es
timated to have numbered 300,000, in
cluding regulars, Bedoius, Mulattos
and Dervishes. They fell upon the
troops of Hicks Pasha numbering only
about 10,000 and completely annihilat
ed them, the only person known to
have escaped being an European artist,
who accompanied the expedition. The
news of the disaster was brought to
Rharton by a Coptic official. The bat
tle occurred near El Obeid, the capital
town of Kordofau, 150 miles west of
the White Nile. It began on the 3rd
and continued with fierce fighting on
both sides until the afternoon of the
sth, when the final attack was made
by El Mahdi's fanatic horde. In the
first, part of the battle Hicks Pasha's
forces were divided iuto two columns,
but it was afterwards deemed advisable
to reunite them into one body. A
square was formed which successfully
resisted El Mahdi's attacks uutilon the
third day it was broken by a desperate
onslaught. The Dervishes were first
sent forward by El Mahdi, who declar
ed that Alia would aid them to van
quish the euemy. They were repuls
ed, however. The regulars were then
ordered to attack Hicks. The engage
ment became general and ended in the
Egyptians being overwhelmed. Gen.
I Hicks' army had suffered severly on
their march of 230 miles through a hos
tile region. They were short of pro
visions, and the intense heat caused
men and beasts to drop by hundreds,
while they were also constantly har
rassed by marauding bands ot natives.
The entire force of General Hicks
comprised about 25,000 men, but the
necessity of keeping open a strong line
of commu jication with his base of sup
plies had largely reduced his fisrhting
force, and it is supposed that the
troops actually engaged in the battle
did not exceed 10,000 men.
