Mercer County Adopts tne New
At a special convention of the Re- j
ot Mercer County, held in j
Mercer last Thursday week, the new
for the nominating of a candi
date for Congress in tLis district was
approved. Tbis action has now com
pleted tbe movement, tbe whole four
Cosnties of the district, Butler, Bea
rer, Lawrence and Mercer, having
now ratified tbe new mode. While it
la«u candidates for Congress will be
nfnTl , ff at a district Convention
of the foor Counties, to beheld this
jeer at Sew Castle, Lawrence Co
Tbis Convention will be composed of
aixty delegates, fifteen from each
county. These delegates are to be
eUcUdtnm fifteen sub districts of
each County; Beaver. Lawrence and
Better have already apportioned their
couattea off into these sob districts,
and Mercer is providing for tbe same
Tbe sob districts of our county, as
formed by the County Committee,
have been published. In each ot
these, two delegates are to be elected
one to go to and act in a distrist Con
vention for tbe nominating of a candi
date for Congress, and one to go to
•ad act in a district Convention for
tbe selection of two delegates and
two alternates to tbe coming Nation
al Convention, to nominate the next
Republican candidates for President
and Vice President. The National
delegates have, under the National
rates of tbe party, to be selected in
the same manner that Congressmen
are nominated in tbis district.
The voters at tbe primary will vote
for these, tbeir sub delegates, and
sot direct for the candidates for Con
gress and National delegates. But
the voters at the primary have the
right to tnsfrucf tbeir sub delegates
as to tbeir choice on Confess and
on National delegate. Tbis instruct
ion they will no doubt giro them
Tbe mode is new and a little compli
cated, particularly for this first year
of its trial Where there are only two
townships forming a sub district it
will not be so difficult to have some
anderstaoding between them as to the
delegates to be elected in same. But
where there are more than two town
ships, or more than two election dis
tricts in a sub district, some concert
of ection between and among them
would be advisable. But where this
action is not taken we presume tbe
voters at the primary will, at each of
tbeir polls, elect their own two dele
gates, one for each matter, and when
tbe County Convention meets the
vutes ia each and every one will be
counted op, and the two delegates
having tbe highest vote in all will be
declared tbe ones elected and instruct
ed by the voters in same.
SENATOR QUAY has been compell
ed, on account of his health, to go to
Florida, where he may remain for a
month or aix weeks. Florida is the
point sought now to escape from the
chills of the North. It is the land of
oranges and flowers and it is to be
hoped its delightful climate may be
beneficial to the Senator.
The meeting of the citizens of this
place ia the Opera House, on Tues
day evening last, was more largely
attended than was even expected.
Hon Robert Storey presided and
Re*. McKee served as Secretary.
Hon. Bamoel B. Miller of M-rcer ad
dressed the meeting in one of the
moat practical and convincing argu
ments against the license Bystem yet
listened to by onr citizen". He illns
traied the evil# flowimr from license
to the citizens of any place both as to
the morals of the place an well as in
a financial view, that carried convict
ion to all. Mr. Miller referred to the
improvement made in bid own
town of Mercer wnce licenses were
refused there, and said among other
things that no respectable attorney
of that conuty could now be got to
present license applications to their
Conrt. A vote of thanks was given
him by the meeting for bis able
Rev. Nesbit read the resolutions of
the meeting, which will be found in
another plaee. The audience then
responded liberally to a request made
by Rev. Oiler for funds necessary to
make a proper opposition to licenses
in this county. Committees were
appointed to look after the interests
of the citizens in the matter and the
meeting then adjourned.
The Penally for Disturbing Pub
There are a number of literaries
he id in the ounty and occasionally
persons attend whose conduct is very
reprehensible. We have been re
quested to publish the law in relation
to the «<ubj«H:t in the hope that it may
bave a salutary effect and prevent
disnrbances in the future. Here is
the law as we copy it from Purdon's
"If any person shall wilfully and
maliciously disturb or interrupt any
■teetinfr, society, assembly or
gati >n convened for tbo purpose of re
llifiou* worship, or lor any moral, so
cial, literary, scientific, ajrriculiural,
horticultural or floral object, cere
mony, examination, exhibition or
lecture, such person shall, on convic
tion, be sentenced to pay a fine not
exceeding fifty dollars and Buffer an
inpriaonment not exceeding tbree
months, or both or either, at the dis
cretion of the court."
Now, if there are any persons who
attend gatherings in the oountry for
the ostensible purpose of disturbing
thosa assembled they should giv»
good bead to tbe law as we publish
it, ar alee they might some day find

Mr. Blaine Means It —His Dec
laration That He Will
Positively Not Be a
NEW YORK., Feb. 25.—Mr. Blaine,
in the course of a long conversation,
distinctly asserted that under no cir
cumstances whatever would he allow .
bis name to be used in connection
with the next Presidential nomina
tion. He insists on the sincerity of
his withdrawal and asserts that he
bad made up bis mind thereto long
ago. He considers, first, that any
man whose name has been associa
ted with a defeat in a presidential
campaign owes it to his party not to
allow himself to be renominated; sec
ondly he is unequal to facing the
fatigues, worry and excitement of an
other canvass, all the more as he
would feel bimpelf bound to work as
hard as on previous occasions. Mrs
Blaine and the o'her members of his
family are most emphatic in approval
of his withdrawal, which is definite,
and neither hasty nor recent in its
decision, Mr. Blaine will not return
from Europe until June and not until
after the Republican Convention.
He declines to express himself on
the subject of the Republican candi
dates now in the field, but asserts
that he did not retire in favor of any
particular one of them. He is con
vinced of a Republican victory, bas
ing bis conviction in particular on
the tariff question.
HI WILL NOT BE A CANDIDATE.
When Mr. Blaine was asked tba
direct question whether he would,
under any circumstances, permit his
nama to be used again as a candidate
he replied in the most emphatic nega
tive, but then added: "I do not wish
to make any new affirmations upon
the subject. I have said all that I
wish to say upon this subject in that
letter- That letter, as you must
know was not a bap-hazard, off-hand
affair. It was the result ot much de
liberation and careful thought. You
will remember that I told you in
Paris last December that I had no in
tention of being a candidate again,
and that I haa practically made up
my mind at that time to forbid the
use of my name in the approaching
More than this, there is another
plain reason for my withdrawing. 1
could not go through the burden and
fatigue of another presidential can
vass—such a one as tbe canvass of
the last campaign. To accept a nom
ination and to do less than before
would be impossible."
MR. BLAINE'S BELIEF.
The correspondent thus concludes:
"Towards tbe close of my last call
I asked Mr. Blaine when he expected
to retarn to America. He said that
he expected to reach New York about
tbe last of June. He expects to
spend the late Spring in London. He
has not determined upon his move
ments. After leaving Florence he
will probably go straight to England
from Italy. He said, with an air of
frankness not to be mistaken:
"Yon have no idea what a relief it
is to me to tbink that I am now out
of the canvass, and that when I come
beck to New York in tho Summer
that I shall not be going back there
to face reception after reception and
to enter into the turmoil and excite
ment of a political canvass. ( can
now come back quietly,after the Con
vention baa once decided the result,
and enjoy my own life in ray own
way, free, I hope, from farthor crili*
cism or comment."
The Farmer And Free Trade.
Tbe free trader delights in assuring
tbe farmer that no agricultural pro
ducts receive the benefits of protec
tion by tbe tariff. The claim is on a
par with tbe other fallacious claims
and theories of tbe free traders. The
tariff list very promptly stamps this
statement as a falsehood and the
thoughtful farmers well know this
