Popular Vote for Governor. j
As there was no existing rule requiring !
a direct vote on the subject, the Executm ,
Committee, at its late meeting, did no.
feel at liberty to order snch an election.
Stoce then the matter has been freely
canvassed and it is believed a very large
majority of the Republican voters of the
county desire to have an opportunity to
ernress their preferences in this way. in
TtoTof this fact, after consulting with all
the members of the committee wc were
able to consult on the subject, *c have
concluded to invite the Republicans, at the
primaries on the 24th inst. to give express
ion to their preferences for Governor cn
their several ballots, by writing the name
of their choice on their tickets, to be re
turned and counted as the other candi
dates shrfl be counted by the County Con
vention. S. D. BELL, Chairman. .

Call for the Republican State
I Philadelphia, April 23. 1«90.
The Republican State Convention will ba
held in the Opera Hou?e at Harrisburg, on
"Wednesdav, June 25, 1890, at 10 o clock
ul ii< l niinatii | i' T citn- :
didates for Governor, ueuieuanl Governor
Secretary of Internal Affairs, and for the
transaction of other business.
The attention ot Republicans throughout
the State Is repectfully directed to the
following Permanent Rules for the holding
of State Conventions and the conduct of
the party. _
FIRST, That Delegates to the State Con
vention shall be chosen in the manner in
which candidates for the General Assembly
are nominated. •
SECOND, Hereafter the State Conventions
of the Republican I'artrshull be held not
earlier than the third Wednesday of Au
gust, except in the year of Presidential
election, when it shall be held not more
than thirty days previous to the day fixed
for the National Convention, and except in
Gubernatorial years. At least sixty days
notice shall be given of the date of the
Bute Convention.
THIRD, That we recommend to the
county organizations, that in their rules
they allow the largest freedom in the gen
eral participation in the primaries consist
ent with the preservation of the party
The State Convention of June 30, 1686,
having abolished Senatorial representation.
Delegates to the approaching State Con
vention will be selected according to the
number ot Representatives in the Legislat
ure to which each county or city is entitl
ed under the Representative Apportion
ment law passed by the Legislature of 1887.
By resolution of State Committee
THE oft-repcated remark that a coil of
inch rope is a better anil more reliable
device for ewapinr from a burning building
than seven-eight* of the patented "fire
escapes" in use, was practically illustrated
In New York on Sunday. A tenement
house, provided with the usual '"fire
escape*," took fire. Panic seized the occu
pants, and there would have been a trage
dy, for the flauies stood between them and
the "escapes," had not one of the tenants,
foreseeing jnst sueh an emergency, provid
ed himself with a Btout rope. The womeu
and children were lowered by it to the
street, and the men and boys slid down it
easily and quickly, and everybody wan
waved. New York has a law that every
room in every hotel shall have a rope long
enough to reach the ground. Of course it
is not obeyed
The Political Ou'Jook.
Several more counties held their pri
maries last Saturday. The results on local
matters are of no interest to ns, but as far
•a they .concern the probable nominee for
Governor they are of interest.
In Armstrong county Mr. Delamater
succeeded in electing one delegate in bis
interest, the other one bciug tor Mon
In Clarion Co., a Democratic stronghold,
there were but nineteen votes of a differ
ence between the Delamater and Mon
tooth delegates,in favor of Delamater. It
is always taken for granted that the
' 'machine" will control the minority
counties, but in this case it came near
missing it.
Clinton county elected delegates who
favor Hastings, and Lehigh elected three
Vho will support Montooth:
Lancaster county has a candidate for
Lieutenant-Governor and elected delegates
in his interest, and the delegation is report
ed to be divided on Governor.
THI Republican primaries in the con
gressional district composed of Venango,
Warren, McKean and Cameron counties will
be held tomorrow, and there is a hot fight
there for the nomination for Congress, be
tween Ex-Senator Lee of Venango and Ex
congressman Watson of Warren.
In Venango Co. also, there is quite a
contest for the nomination for State Senate
between "Willis J. Hulings, W. It. Crawford
and Isaac Ash, Esq. who is a native of this
county. Of Mr. Ash, a correspondent of the
Pittsburg Times says: Mr. Ash is an older
man than either of his rivals, and is a law
yer at Oil City with* good practice. Ho had
not the best ol opportunities for education
in his youth,and has been too busy to study
grammer since. He is esteemed a man of
good sense and character, and if he should
get into the Senate, although tho bills he
might approve might not parse according
to Lindley Murray, his votes would proba
blybe cast with good judgment and honest
purpose, anyhow.
It was Mr. Ash, if I don't misreinetnber
an old story, who once paid a unique
tribute to General Grant.
"What was it fellow citizens," he ex
claimed in the course of a public speech,
"what was it that riz General Grant to the
place he has riz tot Murrit, gentlemen,
The Pan-American Congress.
Writing of the International Congress,
which adjourned a few days ago, G. W.
Curtis says: The point that Mr. Blaiue em
phasized was really the important point,
namely, the scheme of international arbi
tration. If that scheme should be approv
ed and ratified formally by the various
American states, the result would justify
the assembling of the congress. Each gov
eminent will now have in its returning
delegates counsellors thoroughly informed
both of the reasons of the propositions and j
of the feeling of the other states. This I
will greatly facilitate the negotiations of
treaties to secure the objects proposed
Moreover, the presence of so large a num |
ber of delegates for so long a time in tin- |
United States must have indirectly an effect j
npon local opinion in their various coun- |
tries. The delegates have seen for them
selves. They are, as we understand, un
usually intelligent uieu, and they have *tn
doubtedly measured our performances by
our assertions. They have seen at close
view the greatest of popular republics.
They have been sitting 111 the capital sim
ultaneously with Congress, and they l.un
becn impressed either like Lord Chatham
by the Continental Congress, or like a lat
•r lord of great distinction in English
public life, who remarked thai nothing
impressed him with our power so much a-
Congress, "for if yon can stand that, YOU
can stand anything." In any -..-cut tliere
is no disappointment. Great resuit< were
not anticipated. Yet if the arbitration
treaty shall be ratified, one grint re-'lt
will have been achieved.
THE most cold blooded thief yet heard
from is the Baltimore negro who stole a
stove with a well kindled fire in it fr« m the
Cfthin of an oyster pungy the other day.
The Directors' Convention.
There is a charm about a contest, and
men will engage in one, even though it
costs them something, and there is no
hope ot profiting by it.
Of the two hundred and eighty-eight di
rectors of the county, two hundred and
thirty nine, many of whom had traveled
several miles over mnddy roads, put in an
appearance in the Court rooui. Tuesday
afternoon. The convention was called to
order at one o'clock by Sup t Russell. D.
B. Donthett, Esq., of Brownsdale was
nominated for Chairman, and elected by
acclamation, and he made an excellent
presiding officer. J. A. Brandon of For
ward twp. and Rev. Imbrie, of Harrisville.
were elected secretaries, and AV. G. Rus
sell and Dr. Hoekenberry, reading clerks,
all without opposition, and they all did
well. Rev. Crowe moved that the list of
directors be corrected, and that the con
vention proceed immediately to the elec
tion of a County Sup't, as many of the di
rectors living in the southern part of the
county wished to leave town on the 3:50
M. N. Greer and C. M. Brown were in
favor of fixing the salary first, but did not
insi>t. and Rev. Croll's motion carried.
G. I>. Swain moved to exclude all but di
rectors and members of the press, a motion
that carried and spectators were invited to
leave the room.
Rev. Imbrie moved that the candidates
be nominated in five minute speeches, but
an amendment providing for no speeches
whatever, simply presenting names and
credentials carried.
Another motion to proceed to fix the
salarv carried, and Pat Burke moved that
it be "fixed at $5 per school. This brought
on a discussion, during which it was stated
that there are 207 schools in the county,
which would have made $1285, not a bit
too much considering the work, but the
motion wiii tmiiiiseil ami ftii amendment
".It ?4 ooper school, the old rate, earned.
Then the convention proceeded to elect
the County Sup't.
F. M. Campbell nominated S. M. Meals
and presented his credentials, Thos. Hay
did the same for N. C. McCollough, J. A.
Brandon the same for M. A. Sutton. Reu
ben Shanor the same for F. W. Magee.
Kev. lireaden the same for S. J. Christley,
and J. C. C'.aisford the sauie for H. H.
The candidates being all nominated, a
rira roce vote was taken which resulted as
follows: Cbiistley 40, Elliot 34, Meals 36,
Magee 40, McCullough 40, Sutton 38; by
which it will be seen that the directors of
the county were very evenly divided on
first choice. No time was lost in taking
ballot No. 2, which resulted as follows:
Christley 56, Elliott 29, Meals 32, Magee
43, McCollough 40, Sutton 38.
Ballot No. 3 was begun immediately al
ter No. 2 was announced and resulted as
follws: Christley 72, Elliot 17, Meals 24,
Magee 52. McCollough 48, Sutton 26.
After this ballot was announced quite a
number of directors left the room to make
tbeir trains.
Ballot No. 4 was then taken but before
the result was announced the Millerstown
delegation changed their votes from Elliott
to McCollough and the result_ was as fol
lows: —Christley 95, Meals 17. Magee 56,
McCollough 51. Sutton 8.
Friends of Messrs. Elliott, Meals and
.Sttttou then withdrew their names, and
ballot No. 5 resulted as follows: Christley
95, Magee 48, McCollough 70.
Mr. Reuben Shanor then withdrew Prof.
Magee, and the 6th and last ballot was
Christley 103, McCollough 112, and Prof.
McCollough was declared elected by the
President of the convention.
Nearly all of Magee's friends voted for
Met'ollough. Prof. MeCollough being call
upon and introduced, thanked the conven
tion. promised to do his best and praised
his competitors. Theu the convention ad
journed to the sidewalk, where the candi
dates for county and other offices met
them, and made time pass as agreeably as
possible till they started for their homes.
We think that the next legislature should
pass .in act giving school directors pay for
one day and traveling expenses, for attend
ing to "this bit of public business.
Awful Fire In Quebec.
Government insane asylum at this place
was destroyed by fire io-day. There were
in the institution when the fire broke out
1,300 lunatics. It is believed that 200 of
these have perished.
A long lino of gaunt towers and a mass
of blazing debris reflected in the wild eyes
of the maniacs is all that is left of the luna
tic asylum, and tho horrible sights that
were witi.essed during the destruction of
the building will never be forgotten by the
spectators, though to the lunatics it. was a
time of supreme glee, and in their delight
they disported themselves amid flames and
waved their arms in turbulent satisfaction
at the ruin that was being wrought. Not
until the walls tumbled over their heads
were their maniacal screams silenced.
There were incarcerated in the asylum
1,300 lunatics, for the place was more like
a prison than a hospital, and this evening
not more than 1,100 had been accounted
for. But many had escaped into fields
and woods. The number of dead is now
purely a matter of conjecture and is not
likely to ever be ascertained, since no oth
er record is kept than the asylum books,
and these were destroyed in the lire. Tak
ing into consideration all the evidence
from firemen, half-sane inmates, the Sis
ters in charge, bystanders and personal
observation, it is a conservative estimate
to say that 100 victims met their death in
the flames, although some assert that the
number is 200.

To the Republicans of Butler Co.:
Whereas certain unprincipled and de
signing persons have put in circulation a
report to the effect that 1 belong to the
Third party, I take this way of informing
the voters that the report is entirely false,
and solemnly affirm before God that 1 have
never voted the Third party ticket in my
The whole thing is an electioneering
scheme to hurt me, and favor somebody
else. 1 invite investigation in regard to
my standing in society, but 1 request vot
ers not to believe every falsehood that
may be started. The person who cannot
present his own claims, without misrepre
senting others is unworthy of tho confi
dence of decent people.

IN 1880 there were in the United States
twenty cities with a population each of
100,000 or over. Judging by conservative
local estimates, the census of 1890 will
show as many as thirty, and probably
thirty-five cities each having at least ICK),-
000 inhabitants.

Why certainly we are here. Don't yon
remember we told you a year ago we were
going to stay and don't you remember we
told you how we had been working for ten
years to reach the top of the business, and
told you we were nearly there. We told
you we were not certain then whether we
were the largest dealers in our line in this
great state of Pennsylvania. But now we
are the largest. Just think of it right here
in Butler—the largest wholesale and retail
carriago dealers in tbe whole state —well it
is true we have the largest wholesale and
we have the largest retail trade. We carry
the largest stock and sell cheaper than any
house in the state, the amount of business
we do enables us to do so. We do not sit
around doing nothing till customers come
in then size him up and go for all he has
we do a straight forward business and hav
ing all kinds of grades of work we tell you
the quality you are getting every time.
Why just "think we sell the very same top
buggy for $45 that others sell tor $65, ami
we keep also the very best hand-made
buggies—we keep tbe best work kept by
any dealer. We have harness for $6 and
up. also the very best hand-made harness
—in fact we are"the only place you can
get a really good tine harness \ou should
look at our stock of surreys—the best you
ever seen at one place iu your life. We
had them all made for this year's trade
and they are the latest styles, and
the finest work too —and spring wagons,
we have more spring wagons than you
could shake a stick at. Just think of it,
$33 for a spring wagon, also the very best
kind made; and then the best part of it is
you always know just what quality of work
you are getting when you buy from us.
Our rule has always been never misrepre
sent and never try to get rich off one cus
tomer. Remember we keep everything in
our line and pay strict attention. Yon
will always find us here. We cannot
enumerate, but just think of it, the best
collar pads for 50c, horse collars 50c and
up, carts tor $lO up. We ha-e 12 different
kinds, lap robes for $1 that others sell at
$1.50, fly nets cheaper than you could
make them yourself, good kip collars tick
ing face, tufted with hair with pat fastener
on top for $2, —just tbe
collar (only a little better) you
have been paying $2.50 to $3.00 for. Good
hand made team harness —best oak tanned
leather, all complete for $32. You paid
S3B to S4O for the same, only yours hadn't
as good leather. Now do you think this
talk is all true or is it only an advertise
ment. It's quite a picture isn't itt Well,
now neighbor, look nere; If you just come
down and spend one hour looking through
our large stock and don't say its true as
far as it goes only not half told we will
pay you for your time —is not this fair?
Come down, it is only a little distance
ftoin Main St. down to 35 W. Cunningham
St. —where we pay no rent. We want to
sell and get acquainted with you if you
never were here before, and if you have
been here come and see us for we are glad
to meet old friends.

P. S. We forgot to say we sell about 25
Kramer wagon per month just for variety
and could sell a great many more it they
could make them faster - We have a car
load of 26 on the way now which will be
here about May Bth. if you want one, come
noon, they go off like dynamite. Don't
forget the place. Read tho name again
