Delegates to New Castle.
A friend writes ns for information
M to the manner of selecting tbe sub
Congressional and National delegates
to New Castle.
Our County Committee left this
point open and did not provide for
any plan. The Republicans of each
tab district therefore have the right
and power to select the said delegates
in their own way. But the difficulty
arises in districts of more than two
towuhips— or even in two townships
—to have concert of action. In some
districts some leading men have com
municated by letters on the subject,
and bad a meeting and made the se
lections. This meeting was at some
central point. In other districts the
present Committeemen, of the Coun
ty Committee, have met and conferred
and designated the two delegates to
New CMtle. In other districts the
Mid Committeemen have caused to
be published a meeting of Republicans
of MOM to make the selections, as will
bs noticed in CITIZEN of last week.
This would appear to be the most ju
dicious mode, and if not too late can
be acted upon. When no agreement,
or meeting of any kind is had, each
township of a snb district has the
right and can vote at the coming Pri
mary for two delegates of their own,
and when counted up in the County
Convention of Return Judges on the
16th inst., tbe two highest in vote in
the whole sub district would be the
two elected, to go to New Castle. In
aome districts, such as No. 2, Mercer,
Marion and Venango Tps., it may be
inconvenient to hare any general or
central meeting, but their is enough
time perhaps to yet have some notice
given either by the Committeemen
of the nme, or by notice by letter or
otherwise, and a meeting held at
some designated place to make the
selections in time for the primary
election. This would save confusion,
by concentrating the votes in all paits
of a district upon the two sub dele
gates to New Castle. The said sub
delegates vote at New Castle for the
candidate having the highest vote in
their district.
The Primary Election.
Considerable interest is being man
ifested in the Republican primary
election next Saturday week, April
14, and if the day is anjways favor
able there will be a full turnout of the
Rhode Island Redeemed.
PROVIDENCE, R. 1., April 4 The
(Molt of the election to-day was a
surprise to tbe Democrats, who had
been building great hopes on Repub
licaa dissensions. A year ago Davis,
tbe Democratic candidate, won by a
plurality of 2.984. This year he is
defeated' Taft, the Republican candi
date. carrying tbe State by abont 2,
000 on tbe general ticket. The Re
publicans win a sweeping victory on
the Legislature, capturing this city,
aad about 25 of the other 35 towns.
An Important Matter.
Within tbe n<>xt month, pays the
Philadelphia Prexs, nominations of
candidates for the Legislature will be
made by the Republicans in some of
the counties, and within tbe next
three months a large per cent of all
the nominations for the several coun
ties will t>e completed. It is never
too soon to give consideration to mat
ters of such consequences as this rhe
next Legislature will not have a Uni
ted States to elect in the natural
course of events, but questions ot much
greater importance to the people of
tbe State will be l>efore it. These
questions are not likely to ex*ite
such keen political interest nor serve
so much to produce party division,
but tbey will be such as the Republi
can party cannot trust to other bauds,
and it is important that every prepa
ration be made lor Republican'success
in the legislative districts.
The obligation of tbe party to sub
mit the prohibition constitutional
amendment to a vote of the people
has not yet been fully discharged, aud
will not "be until the next Legislature
has confirmed the action of the last
one. No one doubts that this will be
done with a Republican majority.
Every ODe knows that it wili not be
done if the Democrats secure coutrol
of the House. To that end Demo
cratic effort will be directed. The
party will have the energetic assist
ance of the free liquor interest aggra
vated to unusual exertions by temper
ance legislation given the State by the
Legislature. This element will lend
every possible support to Democratic
candidates, and that support will be
accepted by the Democrats with a full
understanding of what it is to mean
in the event of Democratic success.
The combination will have large
money resources; it will be at work
night and day, and it will require
more than ordinary vigilance and
energy to combat it. We are pleased
to note, however, that a large number
of voters who have for some time vo
ted the third party prohibition ticket,
have resolved to support the Repub
lican candidates for Assembly, real
izing that a vote lor third party can
didates is, practically, half a vote in
lavor of tbe liquor interests.
It is practically impossible to
change the political control of the Sen
ate. One-half that body holds over
With the House it is different. Every
member of that body is to be elected
this year, and the tact that the last
House had a Republican majority of
71 and the previous House of 81
should not be accepted as settling the
result. The House of 1883 had a
Democratic majority of 25, and no such
effort was made by the Democrats to
secure it as will be made this year. We
do not fear the result, but it will not
produce itself. The opposition will
give its attention to the close districts,
and employ all its resources in them.
With the aid of the liquor element
they are confidently relying upon se
curing the most of these districts.
How far they may succeed will depend
upon the way in which their efforts
are met by the Republicans,
Squeezed to Death by a Bear.
—Hiram Berth was squeezed to death
by a tame bear last Thursday in
Sweet Yalley. Two Italians have
recently been traveling through the
country with a large trained bear.
They had picked up a good many
pennies when Berth, a half-witted fel
low, created a diversion by throwing
off his coat and turning a series of
somersaults and handsprings with
After the bear and Hiram had
amused the people for some time the
Italians moved off, carrying Hiram's
coat, which contained a small amount
of money. Hiram secured a warrant
and he and Constable Samuel Kester
pursued the Italians and the bear and
attempted to make the arrest. The
Italians promptly removed bruin's
muzzle and he stood up ready for
fight. Hiram, seeing his lost coat,
rushed toward the fugitives to secure
it, One of the showmen mumbled
something to the bear in Italian, and
the animal rushed at Berth, embraced
bim and, falling upon him, soon
crushed the life out of the poor fellow.
Constable Kester in the meantime
had attacked the bear and, placing
his revolver at the enraged animal's
ear, shot him dead, but he was too
late to save Berth. The showmen
then turned upon the officer and felled
him to the ground with a club. Be
fore the Constable could regain his
feet the Italiaus wrenched his revolver
from his grasp and fired two shots at
the officer from his own weapon as
they ran away. Neither of the bul
lets took effect and the Italians suc
ceeded in escaping, leaving the body
of Berth and that of the bear lying
close together.
That Republican primary election
comes off on Saturday, April' 14.
HON. DAVID N. WHITE, for many
years editor of the Pittsburgh Ga
zette, died at his residence in Sewick
ley, Allegheny coanty, on Sunday
last, April 1, in the 83d year of his
age. Mr. White, in his time, edited
the Oazelte with great courage and
ability, and those of the old readers
of that journal yet Hying in this coun
ty will respect his memory and re
gret to learn of his death. He was
one of the builders-up of the Republi
can party.
—John H. Landis, of Lancaster,
the author of the primary election
law, has offered himself as a candidate
for State Senator for the southern dis
trict of that county, now represented
by Senator Mylin. Mr. Landis pro
poses to practice himself what his law
compels other candidates to practice,
and appends to the announcement of
his caudidacy the following notice :
"I will not spend or authorize any
one to spend for me any money, or
its equivalent, to illegally influence
voters at the ensuing primary elec
tion. 1 will keep an itemized ac
count of my expenses from the begin
ning to the close of the campaign.and
will make affidavit to the correctness
thereof, and will give a copy of the
same to any newspaper desiring it for
This is a manly notice to the party
strikers, who support candidates for
boodle only, thai Mr. Landis is not
after their votes or influence and does
not intend to waste any time or
money on them. His services to the
cause of honest legislation and an
honest ballot entitle him to the nomi
nation and election he seeks. That
be will be successful, however, is not
at all certain; for the honest voters,
who are doubtless in the majority in
Lancaster, as in most places, are
sometimes indifferent to the cause of
honest government, while the bor ti
lers are ever alert to their own inter
ests.— Philadelphia Press.

which all who took part need praise.
A song, entitled Little Bessie, sung
by Annie Shannon, a little girl 9
years of age, was a leading feature of
the performance, also a song sung by
Frankie English and Maudie Weigle,
two small giris only 6 years of age
is well worthy of praise.
I cannot give a list of all the per

tbe Dialogue delivered by Bell Hays

A Murder Mystery Solved.
CeariOjV, Pa , April I.—The mur
derer ol Mrs. Jemima Everhart and
her mother, Mrs. Jaae Gilliilau, who
lived half a mile from Liekingviile,
has at last been discovered. The
t tvo ladies were fouud with their
throats cut on March 8, 188 G. and
several persona were brought to trial
for the crime, but sufficient evidence
to convict was always wanting. The
Discovery was made through Jerred
Cook, a horse-thief, who was arrested
last fall for stealing a horse by Detec
tive McKean, near Dubois, and put
in Clarion jail.
While being taken to jiil Cook
told his story. It was that, while
Berving his fourth term in the peni
teutiary for horse stealing, he became
acquainted with Henry Worlhington,
aldo a convict, and shortly after Cook's
discharge in October, 1887, he met
Worthington ngain. Then he made
an appointment with Worthington to
meet him and arrange for the robbery
of an old couple in Allegheny who al
ways kept a large sum of money in
their house. When they met Worth
ington said it might be necessary to
do a little shooting and cutting be
fore they were through with the job.
Cook objected to murder, though he
did not object to robbery. Then
Worthington told how he and two
companions committed the Everhart
murder. One of the party had been
separated from the other two in the
woods while the three were coon
hunting, and during that time Worth
ington and the other man robbed the
Everharts of S3OO and murdered the
two women, hiding the butcher knife
with which the murders were com
mitted in a drain. When Worthiug
tou bad told this story Cook still re
fused to join him in his proposed
crime and next morning started for
his home at Sligo, hiring the rig at
East Brady, tor stealing which he
was arrested. Worthington shadow
ed him the whole distance, fearing
that he would 'squeal.'
Warrants were issued against
Worthington, but John Worthington
was arrested by mistake. The police
then shadowed Harry Worthington,
delaying his arrest until further evi
dence was obtaiaed. But two or
three weeks ago he crave them the
slip, and ou March 20 Cook escaped
from jail. Another of the perpetra
tors of the Everhart murder is iu the
penitentiary for horse stealing, and
an effort will be made to get evidence
from him.

BYRON CLARK, A, 1, M, 0„
Trsatmsnt of Chronic
Diseases ! '
And a physician whose experience Is strictly un
limited by u practice which in extent, variety
and successful results is equalled by lew and ex
celled by none.
Dr. Clark confines his practice to CHRONIC
DISEASES exclusively, and will treat only such
cases as are susceptible of a certain and positive
Diagnosis as a basis for specific treatment.
Serious Cases,
In cases seriously complicated or of uncertain
diagnosis, patients have the advantage of Dr.
inations, which are most complete. Chroulc In
valids should not fall to consult Dr. Clark, as he
makes all Examinations without questioning
patients or allowing them to make any
statement concerning their disease or its symp
toms. If their diseases are not sufficiently de
veloped to make a positive and certain Diagno
sis in tiits manner Dr. Clark wl.l not treat the
Dr. Clark's Methods for the Clinical Examina
tion of Patients constitute a real advance in
Practical Medicine, and
From a Physiological and
Pathological Standpoint
Dr. Clark believes that every fully developed
disease lias its own definite diagnostic symp
toms by which it is known.
Patients know how they feel, but the physi
cian, after examining Ills case, should not only
know the patient's teeiings and symptoms, but
should know why they exist.
Dr. Clark's Claims.
Dr. Ciark's claims to the patronage of the af
flicted public consist In liis belief that every
fully developed constitutional disease presents
its own specific diagnostic or characteristic
symptoms, which It thoroughly understood by
tiie Examining -Physician, can be accurately
poiated o!it and described to the entire satis
faction or every patient.
Hence Dr. Clark makes Lis examinations
Willi) ut tiuest ,:ht patients, or allowing them
to make any statement concerning their disease
or its symptoms.
Positive Diagnosis.
It such O vaiidJation and description is not In
strict accordance v illi the disease and its symp
toms, as patic ts know thein to exist, all such
patlouts arc advised to go elsewhere for treat
ment, as by this t.iaiidard only will Dr. Clark
examine and treat diseases.
Thorough huouledge.
This method of examination prevents the
Doctor's Judgment Horn being in any way bias
ed by what the patient may say; and the Doc
tor's treatment of the case is based upon his own
knowledge of the disease, .derived from a thor
ough examination of the patient's condition,
and not from anything the patient may say.
All £xiiuiiuatfou.
An examination from Dr. Clark, or an inter
view, will convince the incredulous or satisfy
any one of ids professional ability derived from
a large experience, lu this way patients receive
satisfaction before incurring expense for medi
cal treatment.
l>r Clark's Visits arc Made
Ist—To meet the chronic Invalids who cannot
leave their iamilles to doctor with a Specialist
in chronic diseases. 2d—To meet elderly persons
who cannot go from lion:e to doctor with a Spe
cialist In chronic diseases. 3d—To meet chronic
Invalids who cannot leave their business to doc
tor with a Specialist in chronic diseases. 4th—
To meet patients who are physically unable to
go from home to doctor with a Specialist in
Chronic Diseases. sth To meet patients
who are financially unable to go from home to
doctor with a .specialist in chronic diseases. Cth
—To meet all patients who from any cause can
not go from home to doctor with a Specialist in
chronic diseases. Tth—Dr. Clark visits a large
number of places regularly for the examination
and treatment of every form of diseased persons
Bth—Dr. ( lark s consultations are Free. The
ciiarge for treatment is governed by the nature
ot the disease and difficulty oi treatment.
Dr. Clark's Positive Diagnosis and Specific
Treatment can only be acquired by an unlimit

tutional Chronic Dlreases—and In Developed
Acute Diseases subsequent to period of Incuba
