The New Mode Adopted —The
County Districted and
the Primaries Fixed
for April 14.
Although the severe wer-ther of
| last Saturday prevented a full attend
ance of the members of the Republi-
I cau County Committee, yet, a suffi
cient number were present to transact
| the business thsy were called for.
The first thing in order before the
: Committee was to consider the adop
' tion or rejection of the new plan of
fcrred for the nomination of candi
dates for Congress in this district.
As will be seen by the proceedings of
the Committee in another place the
new plan was unanimously approved.
The nest thing in order was the dis
tricting of the county into 15 sub dis
tricts, in accordance with the provis
ions of the new mode. This was
done as will be seen, and the 15 sub
districts formed and numbered Un
less Mercer county declines also to
adopt it, the new mode of nomination
for Congress will take place for this
year at ieast, under this new mode
The election of Delegates to the Na
tional Convention for the nomination
of candidates for President and ice
President, has to be done in similar
manner to the way in which Con-:
gressmen are selected. The 15 sub
districts of this county will therefore
have a double duty to perform,to wit,
voting at the primary for one dele
gate from each as a Congressional!
delegate, and one as a National del- i
egate delegate, so to speak, j
The voter will instruct j
said delegates in each case,
for Congress and for National dele
gate, Whether one delegate can be
made to answer for both the purposes
cannot be exactly seen as yet,and may
depend upon circumstances that can
not now be foretold. We may have
more light to give on this point here
The County Committee decided to
have but one primary election this
year and fixed Saturday April 14, as
that date. At this primary all candi
dates, of whatever kind, will there
fore be nominated. In addition to
Congressional delegates and National
Convention delegates, two delegates
to tbe State Convention of April 25,
have to be elected. This latter it wa6
that required the early action taken
this year. And. in addition to all
above, a candidate for the State Sea
ate from tbis district, and two mem
bers of Assembly, to represent the
county in the next Legislature, have
to be chosen at the primary on April
14. And thus it will be seen that
there is work ahead for the Republi
can yotefs of the county to do, and
not a very great time given to do it
BROTHER DUMARS, of the Green
ville Shenango Valley News, asks,
"Why would not the popular vote
system be just the thing by which to
nominate a Congressional candidate
for this district ?"
We answer, that we think it would,
taking all things into consideration,
have been the fairest mode of making
a Domination, and that wa have not
changed our views as to that. But
the trouble was that other 3 thought
differently, and if oar good friend Du
mars could have, or yet can, devise
any way of making said others think
as he thinks, and as we thought, we
and all others will bs pleased if he
makes said way kiiown. The idea at
the district conference seemed to pre
vail that county equality must bo
kept up. That "little Lawrence"
should have as much to say in the
matter as "big Mercer," or Beaver or
Butler county. This view of course
set aside at once the view that a nom
ination should be made on a ratio of
the Republican vote of the district,
and carried with it of course a refusal
to accept the popular vote system in
the whole district. "Little Law
rence" didn't think as others thought
and, as we say, if our brother of the
News can devise a way of making her
think different we, with all others>
will be gkd if te divulge it. The
mode settled upon is the nearest the
popular vote that could be obtained,
and was voted for, if not proposed, by
the committeemen from Mercer coun
ty in ths late district conference. If
Mercer declines, at her coming Coun
ty Convention, or Committee Meet
ing, to ratify or approve ot the pro
posed new mode, we presume the
whole thing will fall through, "the
fat be in the fire," and love's labor
elected in this County this year.
WE are indebted to the Hon. John
11. Mitchell, of Oregon, for copies of
his resent speaches in the Uuitcd
States Senate, on "Chinese Immigra
tion," and "Pacific Coast Naval Sta
tions". Mr Mitchell fuvora the abso

this country, and on all public ques
tions guards well the interest of the
people of Oregon.
THE Lawrence county Republican
Committee on Saturday last adopted
the new plan for nominating Congres
sional candidates and, as a cons°-
quence, the selection of delegates to
National Conventions.
Butler county having approved the
same day and Bearer county it is
said done likewise, it remains now
for Mercer county to act on the ques
tion. One county of the district, it
is understood, refusing to adopt the
new plan will cause a failure of the
whoie woik. The Mercer County
Committee meets on the 23d of this

Fire at Parker.
Parkers Landing was visited by a
disastrous fire at 1 o'clock last Friday
moruing. Flames were discovered
issuinjrfrom the rear of Ivelley's drug
store and in an incredibly short space
of time the whole building was
ablaze. The fire department was
powerless to render assistance owing
to lack of water. In two hours the
fire had consumed or damaged four
stores and four dwelling houses.

Mrs. Dinsmore's Acquittal.
The case of MM. Eila Dinsmore,
trial a* accessory to tb? murder of
J. C. Davis, was concluded at Frank
lie, on Monday evening of this week.
The day was taken up by arguments)
of counsel and the Judge's charge to
the jury. At 4 o'clock the jury re
tired and at 5:30 returned a verdict of
not cmity.
Tf.e verdict was received with
groat applause. The prisoner stood
like a statue and seemed completely
srunn» dby the verdict. She did not
seam to realize what was going ou
until she was returned to the jail,
when she broke down and wept with
joy. Tha verdict is io accordance
with tue evidence aud meets witu the
approval of ail.
Mrs. Dinsmore at her previous trial
before Judge Wilson, in Ciariou, was
found guilty of complicity with David
L King iu the murder of James C.
Davis, at one time a well known oil
producer. Tnis conviction carried
with it the death penalty. She was
granted a new trial and change of
venue and the case brought to Ve
nango county. David L King is
now in jail at Clarion waiting sen
tence of death for killing Df.ris in
Mrs Dinsmore's house in St. Peters
burg, reb. 5, 1887.
When Davis was flourishing as an
oil operator in Clarion county he be
come infatuated with Mrs. Dinsmore
When Mr. Dinsmore dis
covered that Davis's attentions to bis
wife were not repulsed he packed up
bis clothing and, takiug his little son
with biro, suddenly left for the West
and has never been heard of siuce.
Davis neglected his own family, and
his wife, a woman of excellent family
in St. Louis, left him and returned to
her home. He bought Mrs. Dins
more a house iu St. Petersburg and
their intimucv became quite notorious.
Mrs. Diusmore is closely related to
some of the best families in Warren
county, and the scandal was soon the
theme of the towo. Davis met <vith
reverses in business and to save the
house in which Mrs. Dinsmore lived
deeded it to her. He then went West
and tried to persuade his wite in St.
Louis to again live with him, which
she refused to do.
Dave King was a handsome, dash
ingl young Diaa, about St. Petersburg
and supplanted Davis, still in tbe
West, iu the affections of Mrs. Dius
more. The evidence iu the trial at
Clarion showed toat Mrs. Diusmore's
daughter Lilly.a handsome girl of IG,
was a rival of her mother for the af
fections of Kin?. When Davis's
skull was produced iu court last Fri
day, Dr. Wireback ran his lead pencil
into the eye to show the jury the di
rection of the bullet. Lilly Dinsoiore,
who was seated beside fcer mother,
fainted at the sight and was carried
trom the court room. Letters were
produced from Mrs. Dinsmore to show
that she had written to Davis to re
main 111 the West; that she loved the
ground that King walked on and
wished to retain his affections un
questioned by aDyoue.
Davis at once returned to St. Pe
tersburg. He was seen about hotels
and bar rooms drinking and exhibit
ing a revolver. Iu a drug store he
si'id the revolver was for King
King was in the store at tho time,
and going out, went at once to Mrs
Dinsmore's, and, according to the
testimony of Mrs. Cotton, who
was lying sick in the
Douse at the time, Davis
came in and presented a revolver at
Mrs. Dinsmorw's head and threatened
to kill heir. Previously he had threat
ened to kill Lilly, and prevented her
leaving the house when she wanted
to notify Dr. Moore, the Burgess.
Davis kept his pistol presented at
Mrs, Dinsmore's head and she backed
from him in the direction of a door
opening into a room in which King
w&c. There was a scuffle at the door
and then the shot. Davis fell dead
and King walked up town and sur
rendered himself to the Burgess
Davis was blind of one eye and in
this the bullet entered.
At Clarion the prosecution made
much of this circumstance. It was
set forth that Davis had been lured
into this house by tha woman and
King for the purpose of murderiug
him and getting him out of the way.
Ivin r worked with such deliberation
that he got on the blind side of his
victim and fired into his defective eye
There was a strong feeling against
both Mrs. Dinsmore aud King 1 in
Clarion county for the notorious way
in which they had been living, and
it was the universal opinion tuat this
had much to do with their conviction.
Ki-g has been respited by the Gov
eruor until March (>.
Important Decision on the
Fence Law.
Judge Taylor yesterday rendsred
an important, decision on the fence
law. The oid colonial law of 1700
requires fences in this State to be con
structed of a certaiu height and
strength. In 1885 the Legislature
passed au act allowing couutifcs to
settle the fence question by voting for
or against the repeal of the old law.
Venaugo county voted for the repeal.
Some months ago cattle belonging to

the first section of the act of 1 700 is

that the act ol 1885 is unconstitution

The Reading Strike.
The following letter written by an
official in good standing in the
Kuights o!' Labor and one of the en
forced Reading strikers of this city,
speaks out what many of ths railway
strikers aud probably many of the
striking miners feel bat hesitate to
To the Editor of the Times:
i thank you for the bonest state
ment tfiven in the Times of today on
thw subject of the strike
Our rHilrimd strike was not approved
by one in ten, no, not one in twenty,
of the men who were ordered out
We had good and steady work, and
good pay und prompt pay; but we
were put in the position ot strikiug or
defying the authority of the order,
and being scolded as traitors.
If Mr. Corbin had wanted to get
the Knights of Libor in a false posi
tion and hired Chairman Lee to do it
for bim, the work conld not have been
done better Lee and those v\ ho are
flviug around and living high, while
we pay tbe piper, have done more to
make trouble among the Knights,
aDd to prevent the miners from get
ting an increase of than all the
corporations of the State; and until
we have the courage to strike against
such rattle-brained fellows, we wili
always have trouble and no promise
of safety in work, even when wages
and work are all that we want.
PHIL'A., Jan 28, 18$!> 11 T.P.
The Ledger of yesterday presents
the same practical view of Chairman
Lee's efforts in the following editorial
"What a pitable position the rail
road strikers are getting into with
Chairman Lee as their spokesman
writing frivolous letters while the
men are without wages, and others
of tbsir leaders rejoicing that the
strike is solid, and that there are "no
more propositions for settlement!"
They pretend to treat the strike itself
as a good ihiny: (which it may be to
them), where at best it can only be
the purpose of tbe strika that isgjod,
aud their whole aim should be to set
tle it as soon as possible on tbe best
attainable terms. That is what they
would do if they represented the best
interests of tbe men "
It must be evident to all intelligent
and dispassionate iniuers, that they
are put into a false attitude by the
efforts of Chairman Lie, aud that un
til they can dismiss him aud his
theories from the dispute there can be
uo reasonable hope of ending the
strike at. au eiriv tiav, and very little
hope of succeeding iu the demand for
the increased rate of wages. The
miners' strike is a strike for wages.
Whether wisely or unwisely begun,
it has a tangible aud debatable issue
to consider, an! iu would oj>en the
way lor the consideration of the wage
if the the miners would distinctly
sever themselves and their cause from
the follies of the Lee crusade. There
is natural sympathy for the Schuyl
kill miners as there ever must be for

—The i niportanee of publishing a
di.-solution notice in any case of a
change of firm is shown by a case re
cently decided at. Erie. A note was
given for $2500 by a former member
of a firm, and the firm name signed
to it. This was discounted at a bank
and the maker of the note appropria
ted the proceeds to his own use. Be
ing unable to collect when it was due,
the bank t-ued the firm for the amount.
They showed that his connection
with the firm had ceased before be
made the note, bat as they had not
published the dissolution previous to
that t : n'.3as required by law, judg
ment was rendered against them
This is a rather common matter in

Bhould never be overlooked.

Beware of Scrofula
Scrofula is probalily more general than any
other disease. It Is insidious in character,
and manifests itself In running sores, pustular
eruptions, boils, swellings, enlarged joints,
abscesses, sore eyes, etc. Hood's Sarsaparilla
expels all trace of scrofula from the blood,
leaving it pure, enriched, and healthy.
" I was severely afflicted with scrofula, and
| over a year had two running sores on my neck. I
Took five bottles Hood's Sarsaparilla, and am j
cured." C. E. LOVE JOY, Lowell, Mass.
C. A. Arnold, Arnold, Me., had scrofulous
sores for seven years, spring and fall. Hood's
Sarsaparilla cured him.
Sait Rheum
! Is one of the most disagreeable diseases caused
by impure blood. It is readily cured by Hood's
Sarsaparilla, the great blood purifier.
William Spies, Elyria, 0., suffered preritly
from erysipelas a::d r.alt rheum, caused by
handling tobacco. At times his lmuds would
crack open and bleed. He tried various prep
arations without aid; finally took Hood's Sar
saparilla, and now says: '• 1 am entirely well."
"My son had salt rheum on his hands and
on tho calves of his legs. lie took Hood's
Sarsapariihi and is entirely cured." J. I>.
