and a platform adopted. At the afternoon

ably discharged veterans of the late war,
whose advanciug years, or wounds, or in
firmities, disable them from total or par
tial support; endorses the action of the
last Legislature in its efforts to improve
the road Jaws, and recommends amend

on the license law is as follows:
"The Republican party having in 1880
declared in favor of the submission of the
question of the prohibition of the manufac
ture and rale of intoxicating liquors to a
rote of the people, and having in two sue
connive Legislatures, through the method
ordained by the Constitution provided the
machinery for reaching a fair expression of
the public sentiment, and the vote, to se
cure which it was pledged, having been
taken, declares that it has fully and honor
ably fulfilled its contract in fhis regard.
In view of the result of said election, and
having regard for the preservation of the
purity of tie homes of our Commonwealth,
we heartily endorse the Brooks High-Li
cense law and recommend such
amendments thereto as will tend
to its proper and progressive improvement,
and also bring witliilt its scope the control
of wholesale licenses."

The Internal Revenues.
The report of the Commissioner of Inter
nal Revenue for the year euding J uno 30,
1889, is of interest in many in many ways.
Among other things it shows that the to
tal collections for the fiscal year just end

been duly accounted for and covered into
the Treasury. For the fiscal year ended
June 30, 1888, the total collections wore
$134, which compared with fiscal
year ended June 30, 1889. show an increase

Legal Side of the Flood.
The Conemaugh disaster has given birth
to-many dilliculi problems other than that
of providing for the wants of the thousands
of sufferers. One of tl"ese is a will contro
versy among the heirs of Christian Kiinpel,
a Johnstown furniture C«siur who perished
with his wife in the flood. The couple
were childless, and under the terms of
Kimpel's will his estate, amounting to
♦IB.OOO, of which 10,000 was personalty,
was bequeathed to his wile, tile personalty
absolutely, and his real estate to be held in
trust for her, going to his tivc brothers and
sisters after her death. One of Kimpcl's
brothers, Valentine, is a resident of this
city, and lie engaged Lawyer Sorbemhoim
er to Mean the estate. The relatives of
Mrs. Kiinpel, however, had already secur
ed letters of administration on the ground
that the personalty belonged to Mrs. Kim
pel absolutely and al her death would in
vert to her heirs.
A nice legal question i« presented by
thi.- slate of affairs. If the wife died Lrst,
of course the bequwst to her would be iu
valid, and the estate would pass to Kim
pel's relatives. It, on the other han 1. the
husband was the firs*, to perish, then Mrs.
Kimpcl's relatives are entitled to her be
quests. Then' is absolutely no means of
ascertaining which was the first to perish,
but Lawyer Sorbernheimer believes that
the matter will bo settled by the presump
tion. under the common law, that the wo
man, being the "weaker vessel," was the
first to die.—Philadelphia Record.
Tiih battle which took place on Saturday
at or near Toski. a small town on the west

At the third meeting of citizens in the in
terest of the Union Reunion, held in Court
room Xo. 2. Tuesday evening, it was stat
oil that the members of the 13th and 102 d
regiments had already secured accommo
dations at the hotels aud boarding houses,
that the members of the 134 th and 137 th
would picnic at the Fair grounds during
the afternoon, and all would banquet in the
riuk that evening
Col. Sullivan, of the banquet committee,
said they had estimated that from five to
six hundred seats would be needed at the
banquet, an.l besides these, there would
be present 140 ladies, and the committee
men. and that as these would probably fill
the hull, the committee had passed a reso
lution prohibiting the admission of any
others, and had decided to issue regimental
tickets to members of the different regi
ments. also that the members of the 13th
and 103 d would receive their tickets in
Sheriff Redic's office, those of the 102 d in
Treasurer Amos Seaton's office, and those
of the 137 th in County Clerk Reuben Mc-
Elvain's office: that a sub-committee had
arranged for tables, chairs and kitchen fur
niture, another had arranged a bill of fare,
another had arranged for the purchase of
supplies, another for securing order in and
about the hall, and another had been ap
pointed to assist the ladies; that invitations
had been sent to 140 ladies to meet, Tues
day evening, in the T. M. C. A. rooms,
that the greater number of these had at
tended, that their eagerness aud zealous
ness to make the banquet a success was
inspiring, that the committee had arranged
the ladies in groups of seven, on# group for
each of the twenty tables and that all had
acquiesced, and that it was a foregone con
clusion that the banquet would be a per
fect success; that the banquet committee
would need about lour hundred dollars.
When the finance committee was called
upon for their report. Mr. Stein said they
had not yet done anything but would meet
and organize and go to work as soon as
they ascertained how much money was
needed, then he referred to the fact that
almost everybody who subscribed liberally
would expect tickets of admission to the
banquet aud that some would not subscribe
unless they received such tickets.
This brought on a general discussion of
the management of reunions, wnich was
participated in by Messrs. Clark, Black,
Heineman. Fleeger, liazen. Goucher and
Sullivan, and though it ended in referring
the whole matter back to the banquet com
mittee, it seemed to be the general opin
ion that no civilians whatever, exccptiug
those members of the banquet committee
actnally necessary to assist the ladies in
their work be admitted to the hall. No
arrangements were made for speeches in
the hall, and if the members of the regi
ments present want speeches the}' will
have to call upon the orators of their regi
The program committee reported that
they had done nothing, but would meet
the next day.
Mr. Eastman said that the 102 d had se
cured half rates at the hotels i.e. 25 cents
a meal, or one dollar a day.
The decoration committee was reported
to be at work and was decorating the hall
in connection with the committee of the
liose Co. aud would divide the expense
with then.; the transportation committee
would arrange for the hauling of tho aged
and crippled from the depots and for horses
for the regimental officers; the music com
mittee would need a little money, and the
whole_sum needed to make the reunion a
success would probably be S6OO.

'the Veteran Legion, the military company,
the Hose companies, and the boys of the
Orphans' Home were invited to take part
in the precession, and were asked to be in

The finance committee wa.> authorized
to fill vacancies in the committee.
Gen. George W. Heed was unanimously
chosen chief marshal of the parade.
The selection of a person to make the ad
dress of welcome was left to the program

periments ore attracting the attention of
the mcdinal world. His elixir is the "in
spissated juice i f the proereative glands of
guinea pigs and rabbits," and is iitod by
injecting it under the skin. Some of the
results, as reported, nre remarkable—old

proereative glands of guinea pips and rab

been used was because they had been han

'•I thought I -aw an objection to using
the proereative gland ot a guinea pig or
dog—that the one remarkable thing about
the guinea pig was that it is timid, and
that the dog i- not carnivorous and not ed

ferable for sueh experiments as I designed

glands of a sheep, cut them in small bit-:,

with a small quantity of water, and then
