The letter of Mr. Blaine' from
Paris, found in another place, settles
all question mto his position. He
cannot accept a nomination for the
tbe Presidency under any circum
stances and gives his reasons therefor.
Nothing but tbe Convention being
unable to agree npon any other man
would seem now to justify the use of
his name in any way.
War is it that when storms and
winds come public buildings suffer
more than private ones? Scarcely a
wind storm occurs but the roofs of
court houses, school houses and
churches are reported as faring the
worst. Tbe only explanation that
can be given is, that they are not
built with the care that they ought to
be, and this probably because of the
fact that the public's back is supposed
to be broad enough to stand trequent
W. L. SCOTT, millionaire Congress
man from the Erie district and Presi
dent Cleveland's right bower, who
baa declared himself » deadly enemy
to tbe industries and the working
idaases of our country, and who came
ont of tbe recent tariff discussion
with somewhat tbe reputation of a fal
sifier, is still good enough to boss a
Pennsylvania Democratic convention.
He had complete control* at Harris
botg M Wednesday, and an endorse
ment of the President's Free Trade
BMMage was pat tbrongh almost
without opposition.
Notice to Delegates.
Tbe district Convention, to elect
delegates to the Republican National
Convention, will be held in New Cas
tle, Pa , on next Tuesday, June 5, at
one o'clock, P, M. The delegates
from tbe different sub districts of But
ler County to the same will please
take notice to above.
The train on the Pittsburgh and
Western road that leaves Butler at
8 o'clock in tbe morning is the only
one that makes close connection at
Caltery for New Castle, and will
therefore be tbe train for delegates to
take in order to be in New Castle in
time for tbe meeting of distrtc' Con
vention. A return train leaves New
Castle at sin the evening and it is
supposed the work of the Convention
will be over in time to enable dele
gates to return on same day by the
same. The above is stated for tbe
benefit of tbe delegates, particularly
those leaving here or along the route
of the P. and W. Railroad.
To Elect This Fall.
The death of Auditor General Nor
ris makes a vacancy in that oflhe that
under tbe law mast be filled by an
election this fall. The death taking
place three months before a General
"Election tbe law requires tbe succes
sion to tbe office to be filled by an
election. An appointment by tbe
Governor, however, was necessary to
fill the vacancy daring tbe remainder
of tbe year and antil tbe first Monday
ef May 1889, almost a year.
Governor Beaver, it will be seen,
has appointed tbe Chief Clerk in the
office, Col. Tkomas McCamant, to fill
tbe Tacancy. Just bow the nomina
tion is to be made for a regular suc
cessor in the office we cannot as yet
state, but are of tbe opinion that the
late State Republican Convention
will either have to re-assemble or a
new one be provided for. There
woald probably be no serious objec
tion to tbo re-assembling of tbe late
Convention, which would seem a
more proper manner of naming the
•oxt candidate than if tbe State Cen
tral Committe should undertake to
name tbe candidate.
The Memorial Sermon.
For some years past the Grand Army
Post of this place has bad religious
service* on the Sunday preceding
Memorial Day, tbe chief feature of
which was tbe preaching of a sermon
to them by one of our ministers. This
year tbey chose Rev. D. L. Rotb of
tbe Engiiab Lutheran Church of this
place to perform that duty. That
Kev. Roth well performed it was at
tested by the bearty congratulations,
handshaking and thanks extended
bim by tbe veterans at tbe close of
bis permon. He took his text from
Jeremiah, chapter li, verse 50.
"Ye that btve eacarwl the xworil, go avr.iyi
•Und not Mill, rwuiernber the Lord."
The application of the text to the
occasion was not only fitting but
Made a sermon which was highly ap
preciated, eloquent and commend
ing very general praise. Tbe church,
English Lutheran, was crowded to
excess, in fact many not being ablo to
within its walls. It was finely
decorated for the occasion. Five Na
tional colors were al>ove or around
tbe polpit, two of the flags crossing
in front of tbe chancel railing. Some
fine palm ferns, lilies, and bouquets of
garden and wild flowers, wore on or
aroand tbe altar and pulpit. And,
more conspicuous than ail, in large
and bright letters, was tbe word,
•'Welcome ', which extended across
and in front of tbe pulpit and which
made all feel at home.
Taken altogether thiri Memorial !
Day servfoe sod *ermon on Sunday,
May 27, 1888, surpassed any yet bold I
in tbia place, and to say that all
t*!t I*oefitted by ibem is bat to ex.
press the general opinion.
Randall's Great Speech on the
Mills' Tariff Bill.
Below we we give the principal
points of the speech in Congress
made by Hon. Samuel J. Randall
against the Cleveland-Mills tariff bill
there pending. Mr. Randall is a De
mocrat,a life-long one,and has he'd im
portant statious in his party. His
opinions are therefore the opinions of
a Democrat, a Democrat answering
the arguments of Democrats. It is
not a Republican replying to Demo
crats, but one of their oldest and
ablest men replying to his old party
friends. Who has changed? Surely
not Mr. Randall. For he shows that
be stands where he always stood on
the question of protection to Ameri
can labor and our industries. But
his party has, or rather is trying to
change and to read him out of its
folds. He takes the right view of
matters, the same as Republicans
hold, and coming from him should
open the eyes of all Democrats who
are being mislead on this important
question of the tariff.
He opened his speech by discussing
the President's position on the tariff,
and, mentioning the remedy he (Ran
dall) proposed, said:
Tne Democratic convention of 1884
declared that internal revenue was a
war tax, and this declaration, takeu
in connection with the other declara
tions of the platform, clearly estab
lished the fact that the opinion of the
convention was that some of the in
ternal revenue taxes should firat t?o,
and that they should all go whenever
a sufficient sum was realized from
custom house taxes to meet the ex
penses of the Government, economi
cally administered. The country
was practicallv in such a condition
now, and the true response to those
declarations warranted the repeal of
the internal revenue taxes to the ex
tent proposed by his bill. He favor
ed now, as he had always done, a to
tal repeal of the internal revenue
taxes, [Applause] In the bill
which be introduced he proposed to
sweep all these taxes from the statute
books except a tax of 50 cents on
whiskey, and he would transfer the
collection of that tar to the custom
officials, if that was found practicable
With Albert Gallatin, he regarded
excise taxes as offensive to the gen
ius of the people, tolerated only as a
measure of emergency, and as soon
as the occasion for them had passed
awav, they should cease to exist.
Mr. Randall here entered into an
explanation of the principles upon
which his bill had been constructed,
and stated distinctly that if it could
be made to appear in any case mat
the measure he had proposed confer
red more protection than was needed
to cover the cost of production, he
was ready to lower it. If in any in
stance the rate was too low to cover
that cost, he was ready to raise it.
Monopolies existed without the tariff.
The Standard Oil Trust, the Whisky
Trust and the Cottonseed Oil Trust,
and others that he could mentiou
the greatest trusts in the whole coun
try—were not protected by the tariff.
He was for the protection of labor—
not in one State, but in all. He was
for the protection and maintenance
of that industrial system that allow
ed to labor a larger proportionate
share of its products than was reali
zed in any other country or under
any other system.
lie then proceeded to a criticism of
the committee bill as follows: A de
clared purpose of this hill is to*secure
"free raw material to stimulate man
facturers." In execution of this idea
the bill places > I the free list a large
number of articles which are really
manufactured articles. At the same
time, the bill leaves or puts upon the
dutiable lists articles which might be
called raw materials. Further, the
bil' not only makes so-called "raw
material" free, but places on the free
list the manufactured products of
these materials. Thus the manufac
tare of such articles is made impossi
ble in this country, except by reduc
ing American labor to a worse condi
tion than that of labor in Europe. In
other words, the bill leaves or makes
dutiable the raw material and puts on
the free list the articles manufactured
from it, thus not only placing an in
surmountable barrier in the way of
making such articles here, but actu
ally protecting tho foreigu manufac
turer and laborer against our own,
and imposing for their benefit, a bur
den upon the consumer in this coun
In some cases the difference be
tween the duty imposed by the bill
on the so-called raw materials and
the articles made from them is so
small as to destroy industries
except upon the condition of leveling
the wages of home labor to that of
Europe. This was so in the cise of
pig load and red lead, which is made
from it, and of pig iron and steel
rails. Such legislation would leave
the ore in the mines, or the pig lead
in the smelting works, or tho pig
iron to rust at tho furnaces, while
foreigners would supply our market
with these manufactured products
Instead of the bill reducing customs
revenue $54,000,000, as was claimed,
it would be fair to estimate that its
effect would be to largely increase
the revenuo instead of reducing it,
while the amount of material wealth
it would it destroy is incalculable.
Those supporting the bill hold
themselves up as the champions of
the farmer, while they take from him
the protective duties on wool, hemp,
!Ux, meat, vegetables, etc. And what
do they give him in return? They
profess to give the manu
facturer better rates than he now has.
If this be so, bow is the farmer to be
benefitted, or where does he cjet com
pensation for the loss of his protective
duties? Much has been said about
removing taxes on necessaries and im
posing them on luxuries. What does
this bill propose? It gives free olive
oil to the epicure and taxes castor oil
97 per cent; it giv.is free tin plates to
the Standard Oil Company and the
great meat-canning monopolies, and
imposes a duty of 100 per cent, on
rice; it gives tho Sugar Trust free
bone black and proposes prohibitory
duties on grocery grades of sugar; it
imposes a duty of 40 per cent, on the
'poor man's' blanket and only 150 per
cent, on tho Axminster carpet of the
rich. It admits free the fine animals
imported by the gentlemen of the turf
and makes free the paintings and stat
uary of the railway millionaires and
coal barons.
Mr. Randall said he yielded to no
man on his side of the Mouse in bisdo
sire for continued Democratic control
in tho administration of the Federal
Government He did not believe tho
adoption of the committee's bill would !
muku such u result certain, and he
added: "I cannot be coerced into'
any particular action upon particular ,
action upon economic questions by '
the direction of party caucus. The J
period of political caucus has depart
ed, never to return, and yet we should
confer and have unity, if possible."
In these matters he spoke only for
himself. "My convictions on the
tariff are strong and founded, as 1
think, upon principle and upon infor
mation and comprehension of the
subject. When anyone here enters
upon the task of invoking caucus
power or other modes of coercion, I
can only say to him, if he acts with a
good purpose: that it will prove a
fruitless undertaking; or if with ill
motive, then I assign him to all the
natural contempt which such self con
stituted superciliousness deserves."
Before Mr. Randall had finished his
speech his time had expired, when
the pitiable scene was presented of
Mr. Mills objecting to allowing him
additional time. Mr. McKinley and
Mr. Breckenridge, who were to speak
after him, volunteered to allow him
fifteen minutes of their time, when he
concluded this terrible lashing of
British supporters in preference to

The Democratic Convention
Tho Democracy of the State met
in convention at Harrisbirg on Wed
nesday of last week and nominated
J. B. McCollum, Esq , of Susque
hanna county, lor Supreme Judge.
The selection of a candidate for Aud
itor General was left to thoir State
C ommit.tee.
David S. Morris, of New Castle,
was selected as the Presidential Elec
tor for this district, and A.F. Heiilieu,
of Greenville, and W. A. Forquer, of
Butler, as the delegates to the St.
Louis convention.
Hensel was temporary chairman
and Wallace permanent. Randall
wasn't thoro, and wasu't wanted.
Bill Scott run the Convention and
Cleveland and tho Mill's Bill were
almost unanimously endorsed. The
tariff plank of the platform as adopt
ed, is as follows:
The Democratic party of Pennsyl
vania, by its representatives in con
vention assembled, declares that revis
ion of the tariff laws is necessary with
a view to their simplification the cor
rection of their incongruities and in
equalities, the regulation of dutius
in such manner as will pu;, American
industry on a firm and permanent ba
sis, covering the difference butwe.iu
wages in this country and in foreigu
countries, the abolition of taxes on
ruiv nifitcrial for manufactures, and
tbe relief <ft tho people from useless
and onerous taxes and from extortion
by trusts and monopolies controlling
the prices of the common necessaries
of life. That to this end, and that
labor may bo the more effectually
protected in the enjoyments of its
earnings and in steadiness and con
tinuity of employment, wo give our
most hearty and emphatic indorse
ment to the recommendations of Pres
ident Cleveland's last aunual m«s
sag.t to Cougress, and as in lino with
tho principles laid down in that mes
sage we commend to Congress the
prompt adoption of tho Royenue bill
reported from the Committee on
Ways and Means and urge tho Dem
ocratic Representatives in Congress
from this State to give it their earnest
and undivided support.
"WERE it possible for every voter
of the Republic to see for himself the
condition and recompense of labor in
Europe, the party of free trade in the
United States would not receive the
support of one wage-worker between
tbe two oceans."— /llaine'H hull, nr.

Fifty Cents Reward.
EDS. CITIZEN: —Ah! this beautiful
world, indeed, we know not what to
thiub of it Sometimes it is all glad
uees and sunshine and then it changes
suddenly, and all is dark and sor
rowful. But in the lives of paddest
of us there are bright days, like the
25th day of May, 1888, when many
hearts were made glad when they
met at the residence of Mr. and Mrs.
J. C Redic of Allegheny tp., in hon
or of the 70th birthday of Mr. Redic.
About 10 A. M., the neighbers and re
latives came in on Mr. Redic withoot
giving him any notice; Mr. Rtdic,
being rather a good natured man, ap
peared to think the guests meant no
harm. About 11 A. M , quite a num
ber of relatives arrived from flntler,
Mercer, Emlenton, and Parker City,
which added very much to the happi
ness and pleasure in all the exerciser
of the day. "The women will soon
get a vote," for they can always pre
pare a erood dinner for the birthday
parties, tnd perhaps they would do
likewise on the election ground. On
this occasion the women prepared a
grand feast for all were who present.
At 12 M. dinner was announced, the
table was filled up at once, with Mr.
and Mrs. Redic and Rev. Miller and
wife at the bead of the table. After
a blessing by Rev. Miller, it was a
pleasant sight to look at the guests
and see how willing they were to
help themselves to the abundance of
good things that were placed before
them. After dinner, the rjeeting
was called to order; EsqHire John
Thomas was elected president, and
William Turner, sec'y-
was opened with prayer by Rev.
Miller, of Parker City, who was also
called on and delivered a feeling and
very able presentation 6peecb, and
preeented Mr. and Mrs. Redic each
with a handsome and valuable rock
ing chair. Sheriff Redic made the
reply to the presentation speech,which
was short and sweet; a number of
other presents were preeented to the
happy couple, by many friends as
memorials of the 70th birthday of
Mr. Redic. Mr. and Mrs. Redic
return their heartfelt thanks to the
donors of the valuable gifts, and to
all who were so kind as to be present
on this occasion. They will say as
they look on these gifts, "See what has
been given us," and they will boast
of the love and friendship of the do
nors. In conclusion would say that
the above reward of fifty cents will
be paid to any person who will pro
duce three men, who will consume as
much chicken and good things at a
Birthday Dinner, as Sheriff Redic, J.
C- Kiskaddon and William Turner.
Yours truly, ONE PRESENT.
Resolutions of the Vestry of St.
Peter's Episcopal Church on
the Death of .lacob Ziegler.
Resolved, That bv the death of
Hon. Jacob Ziegler, Vestryman aDd
S* nior Warden of this parish, this
church has lost a highly valued officer
aad one of its most zealous and useful
members, one whose thought and
laln/f was devoted to its boat interests,
aud whose life was in accord with the
faith which ho profensed.
That ID all our intercourse with
him as a member of the church, as a
citizeD and in social life, he was al
ways found true to his honor, over
faithful, just and sincere in his friend
ships, kind and generous to all, pre
ferring their good and happiness to
his own.
That as an almost life long member
of this community he was greatly es
teemed for his integrity, honesty of
purpose, devotion to duty and good
will to all.
Recognizing in his death the dis
pensation of an nil wise Providence,
we reverently bow in submission, ac
cepting it as another evidence of
man's mortality and as an admonition
to be always ready.
That our most sincere sympathy is
hereby tendered to the bereft family
of our deceased brother, and in their
great affliction we commend them to
the merciful care and protection of

PROSPECT, PA., May 28.—We have
just witnessed one of the worst storms
that ever passed through this section
of country. It was about 2 o'clock
this afternoon when far off in the
west a very black cloud came up, and
just in a yery few moments, limbs
were Hying through the air. fences
blown down, and trees of the largest
kind torn up by the roots, aud splint
ered in every possible shape and man
ner. There are ninejtrees here in my
yard that are entirely destroyed,
Twenty-livo of our best sugar trees
are destroyer!. liut the greatest los<»
of all was the finding of my best cow
crushed to the earth uuder a large
maple tree, and after releasing her we
found that her back was broke, and
her ribs crushed. Wo hope that the
next cyclono will be more moderate.
Visiting tho Graves.
El>s. CITI/.KN: A good many
thought the O.A.R. on Wednesday
sh.mld have visited in a body the
South Cemetery as well as the North
one. To merely send a delegation to
the one, and going in a body to the
other, looks like honoring one more
than the other. It is said that about
the [fame number of soldiers' graves
are in the one as in the other, and
therefore tho grounds should be equal
ly honored* if wo cannot go to both
(in one Memorial Day we ought at
least to alternate, year and year
about, as to visiting them. ,

PARIS, May 17, 1888,
VVhdr.ltiw /li-id, Km/., Kdilor New
York: Tribune,:
DEAR tint.—Sinco my return to
Paris from Southern Italy on the Bth
inst., 1 have learned (what I did not
before believe; that my name may
yet bo presented to the National Con
vention as a candidate for the Presi
dential nomination of the Republican
party. A single phrase of my letter
of .lan. 25 from Florence ( —which
was decisive of everything I had the
power to decide—) lias been treated
by many of iny most valued friends
as not absolutely conclusive in ulti
mate and possible contingencies. On
the other hand friends equally devot
ed and disinterested have construed
my letter (as it should bo construed)
to be an unconditional withholding of
my name from the National Conven
tion. They have, in consequence,
given their support to eminent gentle
men, who are candidates for tho Chi
cago nomination, some of whom
would not, 1 am sure, have consented
to that position, if 1 had de
gir. si to rt'prespnt the party in the
f Presidential contest of IBSB.
If I should now, by speech or by
; silence, by commission or omission,
; permit my name, in any event, to
come before the convention, 1 should
incur the reproach of being ttneandid
with those who have always been
candid with me. I speak, therefore,
j because I am not willing to remain in
a doubtful attitude. 1 am not will
ing to be th 3 cause of misleading a
single man among the millions who
have given me their suffrages aud
their confidence. I am not willing
that even one of my faithful support
ers in the past should think me capa
ble ot paltering in a double sense
with my own words. Assuming that
the Presidential nomination could by
| possible chance be offered to me, I
could not accept it without leaving in
the minds of thousands of these men
the impression that I had not been
free from indirection, and therefore I
could not accept it at all The mis
representations of malice have no
weight, bnt the just displeasure of
friends I could not patiently endure.
Republican victory, the prospects
of which grow brighter every day,
can be imperilled only by lack of
unity in council or by acrimonious
contest over men. The iesue of pro
tection is incalculably stronger and
greater than any man, for it concerns
the prosperity of the present aud of
tcenerations yet to come. Were it
possible for every voter of the Re
. public to see for himself the condition
and recompense of labor in Europe,
the purtv of free trade in the United
States would not receive the support
of one wage worker between the two
oceans. It may not be directly in our
power as philanthropists tJ elevate
the European laborers, but it will be
a lasting stigma upon our statesman
ship, if we permit the American la
borer to be forced down to the Euro
pean level. And in the end the re
wards of labor everywhere will be
advanced, if we steadily refuse to
lower the standard at home
