they would be free to vote for someone
else, bat having voted in the Cameron cau

was the only Eastern Republican Senator
who voted for the free silver or coinage
bill. A St. Louis newspaper correspondent
charged that certain members of the

expected to reap a rich harvest if the
Silver bill became a law; an investigation
followed; and on Wednesday, Senator
Test, of Missouri, testified that Senator
Cameron told him that he (Cameron)

Gov. Pattison, then made a lengthy
address, beginning by declaring that be
should take care that the laws were faith
fully executed.and then referring at length
to what he called four especially important
problems —Constitutional Enforcement.
Ballot Reform, Taxation and Municipal
Under the first bead be spoke of the non
enforcement of Article XVII of the con
stitution, which relates to railroads anil
canals; under tbe second he spoke in favor
of the Australian ballot system, which
may be needed in the cities but is not in
the rural districts, under the third he made
an argument for the taxation of personal
property, and under the fourth he spoke ol
the abuses of municipal authority,referring
particularly to such abuses in the city of
His remarks on the subject of taxation
are interesting to all and are as follows:
"Of scarce less importance is the equali
zation of the burdens of taxation. For
many years there has been a well grounded
complaint against the insufficiency, the in
equality, the ineffectiveness and the par
tiality of the tax laws of the state.
The burdens of the government should
be equally shared, or at least as nearly so
as human laws can contrive. Since our
legislative policy is to tax property rather
than persons, there can be no possible ex
cuse for selecting the houses and farms of
the people to bear 10 times as much of the
buraeas as personal property. If things,
and not persons, are to be taxed, common
equty would dictate that the aggre
gate of a man's possessions, irrespective of
their kind, and simply according to their
value, should bear the infliction. What
delinquency has real eetate been guilty of
that it should be thus unfairly discriminat
ed againstT It is the most productive, the
most needful and the moat stable form of
property. It adds most to our wealth, re
mains always with us, shelters and sus
tains our people, and at once attracts, and,
if justly treated, retains and multiplies
population. There is a baleful vice in the
form of government that inflicts a penalty
upon lands and houses, and makes their
ownership difficult and burdensome. The
farmer and householder has no right to au
exemption from his fair share of the public
expense, but he has a right to just and
impartial treatment that cannot be ignored,
except at a cost of social tranquillity. The
inequality referred to is patent to every
eye. There is not a citiien in the Com
monwealth paying a tax upon his home or
farm who cannot point to some neighbor
owning many times as much in personal
goods and idle capital who yet pays an im
measurably less amount of tax. It is use
less to auswer sich undeniable facts by
any intricate theory as to the ultimate
distribution of all taxation. Such unjust
discrimination is working untold evil to
our people; is oppressing the poor; is
exempting the rich; is day by day establish
ing unfortunate social distinctions that are
foreign to our principles of government,
destructive of the happiness and energies
of men, and blasting the hopes that we
have all prayerfully entertained of our
country becoming the home of a contented
and 1 appy people.
The State tax on corporations fills all the
requirements of a subject for taxation that
can he uniformly assessed upon established
standards of valuation, and which can be
cheaply collected. The machinery for its
assessment Is simple and the cost of its
collection is nominal. Corporate wealth is
purely a creation of the State and fitly
bears the burden of its expenses. But
since this and the collateral inheritance
tax together produces ample revenues for
the State expenses, I suggest that the
revenue law be so Changed that the State
remit to fhe counties all other taxes and
license charges now levied by it. Every
dictate of public policy suggests that taxa
tion be reduced to the bare needs of Ihe
government. By enforced economy the
taxpayer is protected; his burdens are
lessened and thrift is promoted. A
revenue in excess «pf the actual needs of
tbe State puts a premium upon extrava
gance and wastefulness in legislation.
With these present sources of revenue,
now wholly or in part at the service «f the
State,remitted to the counties,tbe problem
will still remain of so ascertaining and ad
justing the different subjects of taxation
that all classes of property will bear their
equal share. To this end a revenue com
mission, which has prosecuted its work
laboriously during the past year, has pre
sented diverse reports for the consideration
of the people ana their representatives. I
will not anticipate tbe discussion which
must attend an examination of the several
bills and plaus offered, except to invoke for
the whole snbject thorough consideration
and deliberate action, and to indulge the
hope that the outcome will be a measure
which will materially relieve landed prop
erty in the Commonwealth from the
burdens which have too long lain upon it.
The authority of the State in regulating
local taxation should not, however, extend
further than the constitutional requirement
for the enactment of general laws to secure
uniformity upon the same class of subjects
within the territorial limits of the authority
levying the tax.
A multiplicity of taxing officers is also
vexatious and wasteful. The people de
mand the abolition of the office of mercan
tile appraisers. All mercantile taxes are
levied upon subjects purely of local con
cern, and ought to be applied, if applied at
all, for the benefit of the counties from
which they are derived. In advertising
mercantile taxes and in collecting delin
quent mercantile taxes the State needless
ly expends thousands of dollars.
Then ho referred to the safety of the
public funds, the apportionment, the civil
service of the state, the regulation ol stato
and private banks, tho duties of the Audi
tor General, and closed as follows:
"The task before us is far-reaching, com
prising within its scope the whole field of
material and political improvement. In
administering the affairs of the Common
wealth we must seek to enlarge tho sources
of its strength, to expand its resources, to
increase its comfort and to promote its
prosperity and greatness, so that the peo
ple, in hurmonius progress and fulfilling a
peaceful destinv, may illustrate, in the
grandeur and wisdom of their self-control
and in their majestic movement toward a
more perfect society, the power of a pure
democracy to solve every problem that
taxes <he intelligence or strains the virtue
of civilixed hnmanity."
After the address the sceno was trans
ferred tc tho Senate chamber, where Judge
Simonton, ol Dauphin county, administer
ed the oath to Lt. Gov. Watrcs; who made
a short address, tbon came the parade,
which was witnessed by the Governor and
his party from the reviewing stand erected
on the public grounds; then the two houses
of the Legislature met and Gov. Pattison
sent in his appointments as follows:

That evening there was a ball at the
Armory, and the Governor received callers
at the Executive mansion.
"God moves in a mysterious way," and
the strangeness of His moving is seen no
plainer in anything than in the removing
from earth of those whose lives nere are
constant witnesses for Him. We ask our
selves whyT Others are left about whose
oxistence there is no such aroma. But His
own are fitted for a nearer view of glory,
a higher service and a holier mission, and
he lakes them there to be "Forever with
'.he Lord." Such a lile, such a fruition of
a life and to such a glory He has called our
dear Mrs Xicholls, who went home on tbo
night of January 7th, 1891. Those who
knew her in any capacity oan bear witness
to tho deep toned piety the strong faith
aud the earnest leaf in evry department of
the Christina work she loved, whioh char
acterized all she did.
She brought a clear-sighted intelligence
to bear on whatever "he undertook, and
her consecrated spirit le<l her in the rigth
way of doing all her work. As a friend
she was kind, courteous, affable and true;
as a member of any organization, a willing
and liberal (river, faithful in the perform

ways thoroughly in ei mest. an humble,
consecrated, exemplary Christian. An
affectionately devoted wife, she possessed
all the elements of a beautifully rounded
Christian character. Her delicate health
often interfered with what she wished to
do, but her energy was unflagging.

Recollections of Butler; or Fifty Years
ED. CITIZEN. —The next square, around
the Diamond from tbe last described Gil
more one, may be termed the Keliey-
Bredin-Dougalone of fifty years ago. The
late Patrick Kelley, Sr., lived upon the
lot next to Gilmore one, an alley dividing.
He kept there perhaps the most frequented
and popular hotel of the town, 50 years
ago. His large patronage caine mainly
from the fact that his hotel was where it
was said pure Irish whiskey could be got.
The sign in front of his house, on Diamond,
could bo plainly seen from all around. It
had on it the picture of a large buck deer
with spreading antlers. Hence "The Sign
of the Buck" became the common name of
his hotel, and invitations to go down to
"Tbe Sign of the Buck" were very frequent
in tbote days. Many were tbe meetings
held there—of various kinds: some of tbein
Democratic in object, aud ono of which in
particular, in the beginning of 1844, wus a
very lively one in its nature. A regular
TOW took place, during which the chairman
of the meeting made his escape throngh a
back window of tbe room in which the
jneetiug was being bcld. And strange to
say too the dispute among them was on the
tariff question. Tbe militia companies,
when on review—"muster days"—were
very partial to the Buck Hotel, ono com
pany, on a certain occasion, breaking ranks
when drilling on tbe Diamond and making
for "The Buck," pell-mell, and despite all
the efforts of its officers to restrain them.
Part of the old Buck yet stands, in which
George R. White, Epq., has his present
law office. Tbe other part was torn down
a few years ago and a fine brick erected
where it stood by the late Mrs. Margaret
Mitchell. In this Williams A Mitchell,
attorneys, have their law office. The lraine
on the alley corner we believo was erect
ed by the late George W. Smith, Esq., and
Lewis Z. Mitchell, Esq., in which they had
tbeir law office, 40 years ago. It was sub
sequently the Eagle printing office, and is
now tbe law office of Th<mas Robinson,
The elder Patrick Kelley, keeper of
"The Buck," was a iiue old Irish gentle
man, one of the olden kiud. lie was very
polito and attentive to his customers, was
always neatly dressed and always a gentle
man. He was father to Patrick Kelley,
Jr., late deceased, who lived and kept
hotel for many years on the corner where
now Hunds the large new Reibor building,
and who also was much of a gentleman
and an active and useful citizen of the
town in his day, serving ws a Justice of Ibe
Peace for some years. Ilis persoual friends
called him "Alderman Kelley." lie was
father to our present John K. Kelley. His
widow is still living here.
The late Maurice Bredin, Esq , owned
and lived upou the middle lot of this
square. The largo brick he lived in is now
"The Diamond Hotel," at present owned
and kept as a public house by Mr. James
Sellers, who recently enlarged and improv
ed it. Squire Ilredin, as he wus tailed,
kept a store in this bouse, 50 years and
more ago. He was one of the earliest mer
chants of the place, and it is said brought
bis goods over the mountains on horse back
and pack saddle. Like other of the first
comers Maurice Bredin was a large man in
person, very sociable, and very fond of the
discussion of public questions He was an
especial favorite with the yt-ung men of
the tt.wn, who frequently invited hint to
their debating societies,in which lie always
took part in the debates. The young men
of that day were not only Jencouraged by
his presence with them but also by his fre
quent declaration to tbem, to-wit: That
Butler had more home talent within it then
than most any other place. He had a
remarkable power over figures, or the
faculty to quickly and accurately ca.--t up
almost any sum or numbers. Ho was elect
ed a Commissioner of the county about
1842, and held other positions of trust in
his day. He died in 1802. The late James
M. Bredin, Esq , of Franklin, Venango
county, was his oldest son and is well and
favorable remembered by many of our citi
zens. Benjamin W. Bredin, Esq., bis
youngest son, is now also living in Frank
lin, Pa., and is one of its most enterprising
and successful business men, being eu
gaged there in tho banking and other busi
The other lot of this square is one of the
two celebrated Dongal ones, which, as
they extend down Main street, we will
skip over lor the present and continue on
arouud the Diamoud.
SCLLI VAN-LINN LOTS.
The lot on northwest «ide of I>iamoud (
and next to that of Mr. Dougal's west lot,
we will call the Linn lot, as I)r. George
Linn was the first person we recollect of
living there. The houso upon it was but
recently tho residence of the late Mrs.
Eleanor Cunningham, and iR now in the
entiio possession of Dr. Samuel Graham
and family for residence and office. Dr.
George Linu erected the uinin part of this
house. Dr. Graham, wo believe, erected
the present office part. Dr. George Linn
was one of the best and most highly
esteemed physicians Butler ever had. He
had a gocd practice, was a good man, and
his death,* in 1833, was greatly regretted.
He was the uncle to our present Dr. H. 0.
Linu and therefore g.aud uncle to our
present Gib. Linn, Es<j.
The next lot, now owned aud resided
upon by our fellow citizen, I-ewis X.
Mitchell, Esq., is wbat was known as the
Sullivan lot. The late John Sullivan, Esq.,
orected the houso in which Mr. Mitchell
now reiides and ha* his office. It is said
to be the first brick house built iu Butler
and the best one at the time. Mr. Sullivan
sold tb« property to the late Jobu Welsh,
an Ex.-Sheriff of the county, and he to the
late Gt-orge W. Smith, Esq., and he to Mr.
Mitcholl when Mr. Smith and family re
moved to Kansas, iu 1855. Mr. Sullivan
owned other lots and erected other build-
ings in the town in his day, and was one
of the at tivo promoters of its early pro«-
perity. He w.i< public spirited in all that
concerned its weli ire, and as a man was
open in the expres. on of his opinions and
pronounced in »1' bis views. He served a
a term as Protbonot&ry of the county, from
1830 to 1839. and i.eld various other posts
of trust. Mr. Sullivan died in 1854. He
was the father oi our present Col. John M
Sullivan, who is i ..s only son. Mr. Welsh
was a tailor by 'rade and a very active
man in the affair- of the town. Mr. Smith
was a prouiinen lawyer, particularly in
criminal cases, p nerally defending crim
inals among thp: the Mohawk case, with
Mr. Mitchell, his partner.
THE WALTL It IOWBIE SQUARES.
The two squares in the rear of the Court
House, west end of Diamond, were known
as the "Walter Lowrie squares. The lot
where the jail now stands was owned by
hitn but is now. with the one adjoining
west, the property of the county, t pon
this, where jail cow is on corner, was a
framehonse bnilt by Mr. Lowrie and paint
ed in a yellowish color and from a paint
said to have been made from some clay or
earth obtained in those days along the
creek. Several <■:' the first frame houses of
the town received their first ornamental
coloring from a paint made from this
material found along the Connoquenessing.
In this house the late Mr. W. W. Brandon,
uncle to our present W. P. Hraudon, Esq.,
had a store, 50 years or more ago. The
late Mr. Clark Mci'herrin also had his first
store there, probably for a time with a Mr.
Jonathan Plnmmer. Mr. McPberrin after
wards removed his store to the east Dougal
lot. Both he and Mr. Brandon were men
of much moral worth and highly respected
as citizens. Both are long since deceased
and are now remembered but by few liv
ing. Henry Krug, Sr., and the late Mr.
Samuel S. Wilson, father of present County
Treasurer James S. Wilson, also once
lived in this house. The late Col. Francis
Me Bride lived there at one time, and he
and our present L. Z. Mitchell, Esq.. had
their .'aw office there, as Mcßride &
Mitchell, attorneys. Col. Mcßride had
been Sheriff of the county, about 1830, and
afterwards studied law and was admitted
to the Bar. He was a portly, fine looking
man. gentlemanly in hia manners and
generous in bis isature, and a particular
friend and favorite with the young men of
the town in his day. Many others lived or
had their offices in this old house, among
them the writer of this, who in the sum
mer of 1850, bad liis law office in corner
rooui of same.
The old jail stood in the rear or ■west ol
the present out. It wan a stone building,
perhaps 45 by Si ieet, and two storied. In
some of its windo'.va were great iron
crossed, from an:! through which prisoner*
in those days conld often be seen looking
out upon the street. Meu were imprisoned
for debt in those daya and tip to the year
1842. when the law abolishing imprison
ment for debt in ibis State was passed.
We well recollei seeing men standing be
hind these bar* who were put in jail be
cause they could not pay theirdebts. uudei
a law that we now look back upo in won
der, and which i; now n existence no jail
could possibly be made large enough to
bold all that w: ild be lialilo to be put
tr.crc for that cat »e.
But the most notable event in connection
with the old jail was that growing out ol
an attempt to re . ue the Indian Mohawk
from its walls an . to deal summary punish
ment upon him. This was in the rammer
of 1843, and shortly after Mohawk had
1 een imprisoned. A fear prevailed in the
upper part of the county among the friendh
and neighbors ol Mr. Wigton, whose wife
and family bad been most cruelly murder
ed by Mohawk, that the jail was insecure
and that in pome way bo might escape
punishment. This fear was increased l»y
various reports t" that < fleet, and resulted
in a combined a ul determined effort t<
prevent any ►•u l. escape. The people up
there assembled.i .ly armed and organised,
aud were niarehiig to Butler, under tin
command of the 1. tc Col. Samnel London,
of, now. Clay Twp The Sheriff, the late
James 0. Campbell. had of course his duty
to perform under t!iu law and to prevent
such are seue of prisoner. He summoned
every man to bis aid, filled out the i
comilat"*. the to assist hiui in de
fence of the jail, ij pointed a press body,
consisting of the 'ate John Graham. Esq >
Lewis Z. Mitchel'. Ksq , and others, whose
ilnty it was to in press aud- force all into
service. One verj funny incident occurred
in this duty. A .-oung Irishman, lately
arrived, was in tl. crowd in front of the
jail, looking on ;> ■ scene in wonder. lie
was ordered to t.-tV; up arms for service,
but he objected aud instead of doing so
broke awuy and ran. Nearly the whole
crowd ran to eateli him, around the Court
Bouse aud dow:. South Main Street to
what is now the f. tenmiller Hotel, where
a priest was then staying and to whom he
rushed iu aud claimed the protection of.
lie made good his escape, by safely reach
ing the garret ol the house, but frightened
almost to death. The two military com
panics of the town had been ordered out
by the Sheriff for duty, one, the German
Guards, Capt. l»nrr, promptly responded
f>r service; the other, the late DeKnlb
! Grays, Capt. Ziegier, did not respond with
the same alacrity. The whole town was
in great excitement At every door and
window of the jail, and all around on its
walls and at ovorj ipproach to it men were
stationed, with g i is in hand, and ordered
to defend the jail at any extremity. But
this extremity fortunately did not come.
The rescuing party, however, bad reached
as near town as the then Sleppy Hotel,
now Berg farm, a mile up the Mercer road.
Here they were tret l»y some of the then
principal citizen of the town, Judge
Bredin, Mr. Beat';,-, Samuel A. Gilmore
and others, speech's were made to them
aud assurances given that Mohawk should
bo more safely secured, and be tried aud
punished, by due process of law. Mohawk
had been confined in a basement room of
the jail, a very dungeon looking place,
called the murderers' coll, in the middle of
the floor of which was a huge iron ring, to
which by strong ■ . ains attached to his feet
he was secured until tried and executed, iu
the early part < ! 1*44. Where he was
buried, then iu tit - woods, is now fast be
coming a part ol «>ur growing town, lots
being recently laid out and sold aud
houses built iu that vicinity.
OTIIKR I.OWRIK SQUARE.
Across from jail square is the otter one
ol the late Hon. Walter Lowrie, now own
ed And lived upon by Mrs. S. C. Sullivan,
willow of the latn lion. Charles C. Sulli
van. Mr. Lowrie ; re- ted, about 1828. the
large dwelling in • resided in by Mrs. Sul
livan. He was one of Butler's principal
old time citizens ;md if not its greatest
man ho certainly achieved more fame and
rose to a higher distinction than anj - of her
other'ormer pnblic men. Ho came here
a poor young man, from what is now Alle
gheny Twp., un<l became a merchant,
clerk in stores and clerk to the County
Commissioners. He was finally elected to
the State Senate torn this then district,
anil lieforo the cb. ■■ of his term there ho
was chosen by the Legislature a United
States Senator to represent this State in
Congress. It is recorded that when the
balloting began he received but four votes,
from fellow members who knew his worth
and who continued to vote (or him, day
alter day nnd ballot after ballot, until
finally be was elected, the only United
S<Hes Senator Butler county ever had.
How different WHH ;.bat way of choosing a
IT.l T . S. Senator from the present enutun
system, into whir!; members now go and
therni.y smother the choice of their comity,
their own choice as well as their own
convictions of right and duty to their con

years he was chosen cbiel" Secretary of the

sons, Rev. John C. Lowrie. Another son. [
Wa'ter. a minister and missionary, was ;

other, Reuben, also a missionary, perished ;
in India. Another. Matthew B. Lowrie, j
Esq.. was a member of our Bar and died in
Cuba, where he had (tone for his health.
Another, Jonathan Roberts Lowrie, Esq.,
died recently in Huntingdon county, Pa.
The religious character of Mr. Lowrie
may be seen from the calling of three of
his above sons. He was a deeply religious
man. and one of our very few public men
who ever carried into his public life the
morals and principles of his private home
life. He was in a word a Christian states
man. At all times be was modest and un
assuming in all the relations of both his
public and private life. In person he was
. a rather tall man. being over six feet in
height, and in complexion he was quite
The late Charles C. Sullivan. Esq., father

The Philadelphia Press
Has won the foremost place among Penn
sylvania newspapers by the liberality,
enterprise, and lainiess with which it con
ducts its business, reports great events,
and the completeness with which it records,
day hy day, the life of the city, State and
Its field is world-wide, and its staff, its
special correspondents, so many and well
organized, its source of news so numerous,
that it appeals to a wider constituency
than any other newspaper ever published
"THE PRESS," said one of the man
agers of tho Western Union Telegraph
Company, "now receives more telegraphic
news than all the other Philadelphia news
papers combined." This statement is au
thorative and conclusive.and THE PKESS
presents as daily witnesses to its truth, its
twelve to twenty-four bright and interest
But it is not only by its news enterprise
—by the zeal, energy, and integrity of its
reporters and correspondents that THE
PRESS has won ami held the confidence
of its many thousands of readers, rep
resenting every age and eyery condition of
life, every trade aud every profession,
every faith and every political opinion. It
is the excellence and varied interest of
THE PRESS as a general family journal,
appealing to women as'well as to men,
which have made for it so many friends at
home,and extended its reputation through
out the country. It prints every import
ant event of the world's progress.
The printing of news is always its lirst
business, but its columns are also enriched
by contributions from the most gifted
special writers, the most famous novelists,
anil some of the most eminent public men
of the time. The literary engagements al
ready made for 1891, probably surpass in
number and variety, and nearly equal in
cost, any contemporary magazine, for tho
field and resources of such a newspaper as
THE PRESS made it not only a daily
historian, but a daily forum aud a daily
It* steadily growing profits and its stead
fast constituency not only demand, but
insure progress. The greatest authors, as
well as the brightest news correspondents,
find their largest profits derived from and
Pennsylvania newspapers, as well as their
best Pennsylvania audience, in DAILY,
SUNDAY, and WKKKLY I'KKSS.
In politics TH K PRESS is Republican,
but it knows 110 other master than the
people whoso rights, aspirations, and
needs it always defends. It has no enemies
to punish, no individual political ambitions
to foster or promote, and is subservient to
no politician or clique. Faithful to the
great body of readers and voters, whom it
truly represents, it promotes its own in
terest and influence by faithfully uphold
ing their. Its editorial opinions are fear
less and frank—never captious. Its news
is always impartial. In its pages the
the workingmcu limls as ready audience as
the capitalist. To all commercial and
industrial progress, to the best through
and best action in every ■sphere of bumau
enterprise, it accords a generous and eu
lightened hospitality. In the columns of
TilK PHILADELPHIA PRESS justico

Some advertisers are too timid.
They KJHIIII A few dollars ami trait

any more. Trade was never built

that attraets the purchasers.
"Ohj yes, that's a mighty good

the non-progressive merchant.
So it is, of course, for they get
paid for giving the merchant j>nf>-

give him the more they should be
paid. Hut as good a scheme as it
