The County Commissioners did not pub lish the Caanty Auditors' Report, this year, at the instance of Jndge Hasen, who told them Uut there is no law authorising them to do ao,bnt as the lew requires them to pnbliah "a fall end accurate statement of all reocipU and expenditures of the pre ceeding yea*" for four weeks, and specifies that "such statement shall enumerate the respective rami paid by each ward and township within the county, and also des ignate all »um» expended for the support of prisons, the pay of each commissioner and of their clerk, the repairs of old or the erection of new bridges, and the sums paid to indirfdaals for lands over which roads may have been laid out, together with sooh other items as may have a ten dency to ocovey general information of the transactions of the proceeding year," and as the old board of Commissioners had not kept book* from which they oould make such a report, the new board took the Auditors' Report and made the condensed statement which appears in our oolumns Whether or BO to condensed A statement is satisfactory to the tax payers is for them to say. Attention has been directed to the item in the expenditures called "County Account," which is several times larger than the item of name name in the Audi tors' Report for the proceeding year, and we are informed that the items that go to make up the aggregate of that account were from the bunch of cancelled warrants that the County Treasurer had so labeled. "We have looked over the items at* they appear in the Auditors' Report and find that about one-half of the aggregate is composed of the Sheriff's bills for boarding prisoners and bills for transcribing. The aggregate of all the warrants issued by the County Commissioners for 1880 wa» $42,108 87, while for 1889 it was 548.67rt.81, a difference of six and a half thousand, and during the year 1890, $6,259.04 was paid to the State, while during 1869 but $3,778.20 remitted to the State Treasury. After considering the matter we arc of opinion that a ftaller report than the one published this yew should be given, and that the boat report that can be given to the people of the county, is the Auditors' Report with the unnecessary details, such as the items of tho Commonwealth account, eliminated. The Auditors are sworn to audit, settle | and adjust the aoconnts of the Commission- j ers, Treasurer and Sheriff; the business of each'and eyerj office in the Court House is connected with that of the others; the du ties of the Auditors are specific and are separate and apart from that of 'all the other officers, and it is their report that the people should see. The law provides that their report be filed with the Prothonotary, and that has been done, and how many of the taxpayers of the ooonty are going there to see it. It is also made a judgment against a delin quentoffloer and to pigeon hole it without publication, or to publish a report made out by any other- of the county officers seems to us to be an absurdity, and we do not believe suoh to be either the spirit or the letter of the law. WHY does not some member of the House or Senato at Harrisburg prepare and offer a resolution looking to an amendment of the Constitution of the United State as to the eleotion of United States Senators? All they have to do is to look at Article 5 of the Constitntion oi the United States and make the application there provided for to Congress. Let Pennsylvania lead off in this important reform, and two-thirds of the other Btates will soon follow her. "Everybody says United States Senators should be elected by the people of the States. But no State Legislature moves in the matter, as is necessary. Start the ball rolling, and let Pennsylvania have the honor of starting it at this session of the Legislature. Washington Motes. On Friday the Shipping bill which provided for subsidies to steamship lines was defeated in the House by a close vote i 147 to 145. On Tuesday it was estimated that the money appropriated by the present Con gress exceeded the prospective revenues. The President nominated W. R. Leeds of Philadelphia for Marshal of the Extern Pa. district. 8. C. McCandless, who has been Clerk of the U. 8. district court for Western Penn sylvania, for many years, resigned his office a few days ago, and Congressman PalzoH secured the place for his friend Frank P. Chaso. It is said to be worth four-thousand a year, and is practically for life or good behavior. The Central Pacific R. R. got a scoring in Congress one day last week, while the amendment to the Deficiency bill, striking out certain items authorizing payment to it for services was under consideration. Mr. Dalzell made a speech in which be claimed that the R. R. Co. was hopelessly and fraudulently insolvent, and that it now owes the National Government some seventy millions. The amendment was agreed to and the Co. will not get the three millions, it olaimed. The people of Pennsylvaina are becoming very proud of John Dalzell; he has brains and he see ma to be honest. Congress adjourned Wednesday noon. The last few hours were spent in hearing the reports of chairmen of the committees, and in the efforts of members to have the rule* suspended and private bills passed. As the hoar of noon approached Speaker Reed made his terewell speech, and ht> received a vote of thanks by a strict party vote. When the gavel foil and the House was declared adjourned sine die, the Re publican members sang "Marching Through Georgia," followed by the long metre doxology. The Senate adjourned quietly, Vio« President Morton made his farewell speech and declared the Senate adjourned. THE town of Defiance, O. has a strange affair on bands. The janitor and assistant janitor of the School-building accused Supcrtendant Butler of being too intimate with three of the lady teachers, and the testimony was so strong against him that be narrowly escaped violence. But a close investigation proved the falsity of the charges, and the indignant citizens warned the janitor to leave the town. lie did not do so, a mob visited bia house at night, and next morning his body was found on the railroad track, witn bia throat cut from ear to ear. trii)cuUi«ui«svi iuui«, auu tuaue nig teen hundred people bomolees. Two Hangings in Pennsylvania. Two men were hung in 'Western Penn sylvania, last Thursday. At Washington, Pa. West, the colored man who murdered the Crouch family last May made a terrible scene. He attempted suicide a short lime before the hour for execution arrived by opening a vein in his neck with a sharpened nail, and that being discovered and frustrated, he fought the Sheriffs party when they entered his cell, and had to be chloroformed, strapped to a plank and carried to the gallows. Then the rope broke. West fell to the ground and had to be carried up again. Alto gether it was one of the most horrible affairs that has ever happened in this state. At Ebensburg.Pa. Harry Marsh, a young English miner, who killed his sweetheart. Clara Jones, last July, was hanged. lie slept soundly the night before, ate his last meal with a relish, and appeared willing to die. His neck was broken by the fall. Hi* crime was a remarkable one. He was en gaged to be married to the young woman, and spent the evening before the murder in her company at the home of her sister.near G&lliUin, Cambria county, and arranged to go with her Sunday morning to the home of her mother, in a village a few miles distant. On the way, at a loneh spot, Marsh knocked the girl down and then cut her throat with a razor. H<* stood beside his victim until a man named John Xagle came along. Marsh calmly told Nagle what he had done and asked him to take him to a constable. At the trial it was shown that Marsh was jealous of the girl and had evidently premeditated the killing. Not a single extenuating circumstance was shown. He made no de fence, save an endeavor to prove that the crime was the result or a sudden quarrel, and was, therefore, not of the first grade. SIHCB noon of Wednesday John B. Robinson of Chester this state, has been both a state senator and Congressman; and Gov. Hill ol New York is both Governor and U. S. Senator. Clearfield. Mr. Perry Doughorty is very ill with the measles. Mrs. J as. Flick is confined to her bed with a severe attack of rehumatism. Messrs Geo. Morrow and Jas. Martin are nearly over the measles. Mrs. Thos. Morrow is quite sick with something which resembles the grip. Mr. Wm. Dougherty is still growing weaker, but it is hoped that with the open ing of the spring he may recover. Mr. All. Turner is quite a gool bit better this week. Mrs. Jacob Fennell Sr. was taken very sick on last Satnrdav morning just after her breakfast The friends were called in, and a dispatch seat for the doctor. It proved however to be nothing serious, and at this writing she is able to go about. The weTl oil the Daniel McMillin farm reached the sand last week and came in dry. It is reported that the company * ill drill another well before they abaauon the farm. Quite a number of our young iolks attend the Literary Society at Kattigan. On last Saturday night while Messrs Wm. and Hugh Burke were coming home from the Literary, their horse became un manageable and threw them oat. 'I |"\ v Cowcver were not hurt bat bad quite a long search for their horse, and the buggy was oadly damaged. There is a rumor abroad that the recently surveyed R. R. is to bo built at once. II the K.R. and oil both come, Fenelton will boom. Rev. McKoe is engaged in revival work at Craigsville. Messrs Samuel Milligan, John, and Thos Dipncr have been for some lime engaged is building a barn in W estmorcland Co They are expected home in the near luturc. Messrs. John and Wm. Sipc are busily engaged trapping. The Directors and Citizens of our twp, are very backward in visitiug the schools. They should visit the schools more fre quently than they do. The farmers of onr twp, did not make a very good showing at the Farmer's Insti tute, lately held at Renfrew. We are not aware of their being one delegate from Clearfield. A Birthday Party. Some time ago two or three near friends and well-wishers of John M.' Brown aud wife, of Clay Twp., took it in their heads to surprise them on John's birthday, and as John is quite a jolly, good-hearted fel low, great fun was anticipated if it could only be kept from his knowledge. After due consideration and the possibility of a rainy day, it was thought best to only in form their near relatives. But on the morning of Feb. 23, the sun shone bright and all nature seemed gay, as did the faces of those who might bo seen wending their way towards the handsome country residence of John M. aud his wile. John, like all good farmers, was out in the woods cutting timber, and his good wife was busy with her morning work, churning, when a crowd of twenty-tive burst in upon them, and, oh. the j dly meeting, the hand-shak ing, the greeting, was one never to be for gotten. John and Margaret were glad to see their friends come and made merry for them all. The friends continued to come until about seventy arrived, and then we began to think about dinner. Two large tables wore set in the dining-room and tilled with such stuff as delights the eye and much more the appetite. And as to the committee, the two gentlemen that arranged the tables did their duty nobly as did also the two that took charge of the heavy-ladened baskots. Those that were to take charge of the horses of tho invited guests were a little backward at lirst. but 1 think afterwards made up for lost time. As for the ladies they did their work splendidly, and everything went «n like the workings of a clock. When dinner was announced John was seated at one end of the tablo and bis wife nt the other end, aud the spaces at the sides were tilled with their brothers and sister - , who, 1 am sorry to say, were not all Lhere. Some were detained on anoouut of sickness anil bad roads, others bad trifling excuses, but everything went merry as the marriage bell. After dinner tho brothers and sisters of John and his wife presented each ol them with a handsome rocking chair; and many other presents both useful and orna mental were given by his nieces, the Misses Setloff, Ada, Lizzie, Etta, Mary anil Charles Brown, Mrs. J. E. Bortinas, Misses Maggie A. and Tillie C. Brown. John Rei hart, Amos Young and Jacob B. Hutch ison, and as John is amply able to supply nimsolf with everything to make home comfortable, this goes to show the love and esteem their lriends have for them. When this was done the young men enjoy ed ball playing and other sport, the older ones discussed the road law, the ladies took their general chat and the more pru dent returned home early, and some guests continued to eat (especially pickle) until we thought going home was an absolute necessity, and altogether it a day ol joy never to be forgotten, and hope it may come again.

The Burdick Oil bill was permanently killed in the Senate Thursday by being refused a place in the calendar. The enemies of the Tax bill recommend ed by the ltevenne commission, and which makes corporate property taxable for local purposes, are try ing to kill it by proposing that the state gives four millions to the public schools, instead of two millions. The memUtrs from Allegheny are en deavoring to secure another Judge for that county, and allege that the legal business of the county is at present clogged, and present Judges over worked. On Tuesday several bills were introduc ed. and there was considerable talk as to what would bo done with the $1,000,000 to be received from the National Treasu rv: and a school book publisher testified before the book committee that they sold their books at from 16 to 20 per cent below their li.-t prices. Mr. Burdick made an effort to have his pipe line bill placed on the calendar of the House, last Monday night, but the motion was defeated by a vote of 97 to 84. Our members, Messrs Thompson and Williams spoke for and voted lor the motion. Farmers' Meeting at Renfrew. This gatheing of farmers and laborers was an index to the public puise to a lim ited extent. Farmers are not a class that protest so long as grievances can possibly be borne. They had their essays and talks oj ensilage, under draining, speed at the Fair v i economy on the farm; and amr. eil i.. •:i Ives for a couple of hours by good t„ "1 the pleasing perform ances of their o . . .ttlo ones in compet ing for a literary prize. We noticed that every countenance bore a more serious aspect, a more thoughtful, wistful and ue termmed cast than it did a few years ago. Wonder, surprise, suspicion, lear, love, doubt, anger and thoughts of the future lent to every countenance mora anxiety than I ever saw -efore. The farmers aud poor men of all classes feel that a great and unjust burden rests upon them aud they fear the combination is so strong that it cannot be remedied through the ballot box. The corrupting influence of capk nl and the fact that it now holds the fort,casts a shadow of despair on the facj of the hon est man. But the teeth that are hid by lips that can no longer smile r.t crime are set, aud the bea'ts that suffer beat iu unison, ana the cause ot humanity can and will rally l'or the final conflict when the t.me comes. Miss Bulah Tiaiblin received the prize for recitation, with a fi-w dissenting voices in favor of her brother. This was a well earned prize, the contest v< as clo.-e aud the performances seldom it' ever excelled on any stage. The interest taken and amuse ment furnished far exceeded the anticipa tion of any one. As the rain increased the crowd increas ed. and the Opera House in the afternoon and evening was crowded. The tax ques licn appeared to be the natural centre of the five hnndred minds present. The unanimous opinion was that corpo rations should pay their equal share of local tax, r\ud if the people rule this will soon be onr law. The good . itizcu and the poor citizen look forward through the evolving human ity of this progressive government, to the day when there will be a little home free froui tuxatiou for every man; and the un earned millions that fortune.fate and crime have placed in the hands of the few, shall pay the buiuen of taxation in this coun try. All healthy, just and humane laws are opposed by capital; and that capital seeks to control legislation and the administra tion of justice, as well as the ballot box itself by n.any corrupt means: Ist. Direct bribery. 2d. Controlling the press. 3d. Controlling the pUlpit. 4th. Free passes to Legislators. f>th. Free passes to Judges of our Courts. 6th. Reduced fare to ministers. 7th., Whisky and beer. Sih. Promises of position and power. This is the belief of the people. SIMEON NIXON.

Miss Xannie Staples, of Callery, wa- the guest of Mrs. Lepley last week. Tho play entitled, "The Commercial Drummer." given at the close of the term of the Academy, was very good, and was listened to by a large audience. The by-word aoout town now is •'shoo! chicky, shoo!" On whom is the greater joke—on the boys that lirst. fooled the old hen or on tho boj's tha ? got fooled out of the soup?

The "Republican convention" held in the Academy ball on Friday eve, Feb l!". was a decided success and became quite exciting towards the latter part of th.- ses sion. The candidates for President were James G. Blaine, who was named by W E. Caldwell and seconded by Everet .sproul; John WauamakT named by N. W. Campbell, seconded by Frank Thomp son; Robert T. Lincoln, nominated by Laurel Christlev. seconded by Ross Por ter; Cbauncey M. l)epew nominated by Charles Timblin, seconded by Will Stew art. The characters of the men were ably disoussed and much honor was _ g'ven to our n<>b!<- statesmen. All who were pres ent seemed to be much pleased with tho convention and think l.rw that they are much better prepared to vote for the next presidential candidate. The students also learned how our conventions are conduct ed and all honor should be given to tnnui for taking such an active part iu the wel fare of r>ur nation.

I Recollections of Butler; or Fifty Years Ago. (Continued.) OLIVKB DAVID—SCOTT —McKKK SyfARE. The middle lot of this square i<s lirnt rec ollected by us as that of the late Robert Scott, Esq. Upon it at present stand the tine store buildings of Mr. Al RufT. Mr. 1). j 11. Wuller and Mr. F. P. Baldauf. Whore* they stand fifty years ago stood small frame or brick buildings. The late Mr. Philip Bickel became owner of the one where Mr. ! Ruli' has his shoe store and had his shoe making shop there, near fifty years ago. He was followed by Bickel and Schenck in same business. Mr. Adam Schenck was i father to present Schenck enterprising cit izens. Mr. Adam Schreiber followed Bickel and Schenck in the same business. So it will be seen that this particular place has beeu occupied from the time of Mr. Philip Bickel down to the present by men engaged in the shoe trade or business, Mr. Al Rutf being the present one with his tine boot and shoe store, composing a part of the Union Block, erected since the fire of 1878 that burned the old buildings there. Where Mr. D. H. Wuller's fiue drug store stands the late Mr. William Criswe 1 had his saddlery shop fifty years ago. Mr. Criswell was a prominent citizen of our town for many years. He was one of the earliest and best saddlers in the place. In his latter days he had connected with him in business the late Mr. Curtis Smith, and Mr. Smith probably carried on the saddle ry business there himself for a time. Da vid H. Mackey had his marble shop there atone time. Wni. S. Ziegler, Esq. had his.tin shop there at one time. Present Drs. Graham and Zimmerman had a drug store there for a time and we believe sold out same to present Mr. Daniel H. W uller. Ills building is part of Union Block erect ed to replace those burned down by the fire there in 1878. Fifty years ago where now etands Mr. Baldauf's shoo shop and store stood a small building, which has had many occu pants. "too numerous to mention" as they say in vendue bills. It is longer ago than that since our present Gen. George W. Reed had we think his first saddlery shop there. Present William S. Zeigler, Esq. afterwards had his Justice of the Feaee office there. This part of lot finally be came the property of Mr. John Greer of Prospect, from whom we believe Mr. Bal dauf obtained it and upon which he has erected the fine brick now standing there, in upper rooms of which is the office ol the Western I'uiou Telegraph Co. Robert Scott, Esq. who owned above lot of this square was iu his day one of But ler's prominent citizens and an active and influential man in its political affairs. We have but a faint recollection of him. He was the principal Justice of the i uce ol the town for many years, and was at one time a Commissioner of the county, aud ult-o its Register and Recorder for a num ber of years. He was the lather of ex- Sheriff John Scott., whose widow is still living here, aud the grandfather of our present Robert Pressley Scott, Esq. of the Butler Bar. Ho died in the latter part of 1830. MctiKK LOT. The late Hugh McKee, Esq. was the owner, fifty years ago, of the lot on which now stands the Savings Bank. theSchncid eman clothing store and the former Nation al Bank, now Berg Bank Building. W here Savings Bank is formerly stood a small brick, generally used for a butcher's shop. Our present Mr. Christian Otto had his meat shop there aud probably owned the propertv for some time. When Nicholas aud Lewis Miller first came here they had their meat shop there. The late James Glenn had his tailor shop there in former vt ;irs. and the present Mr. Nelson McCaud less had his tailor shop there for some time. Where store of Mr. Herman Schneide man now i was a frame which was part of the rt :idence of the late Mr. McKee. Mr. John A. Sedwiek, about ISGS, had a sad llerv shop there. Present Mr. Joseph Rockenst.-in followed him with his sad dlery shop there. It finally became the prcperty of present Hon. Charles McCand less and Mr. • Charles Dufley, from whom Mr. Scbneideiuan purchased same. | The corner, where -iresent Berg Bank stands, was also a part of the McKee residence, or used rather by him as the drying part of his tanning shops. After Mr. JicKee's death. and about 1846, this whole lot became the property of his s-m, Doctor J. Cooper McKee, now <f Liiitcd States Army. About I*7l the p'irt where stands Berg Bank was purchased l»y Col. John Ai. Thompson for banking pur poses. paying #12,000, for samo, soon alter which, lHTii. the construction of what was known as the National Bank building was commenced, and completed in sn.ue year. It did business there to the lime of its failure or being closed up by the Govern The liite Mr. ilugh McKee was one of the early and enterprising citizens of Jjutli*. "Our recollection of him is but he was always spoken of as a most worthy man and excellent citizen. It is said that the present prosperous U. I'. Church of this place owes uiore to Mr. Mc- Kee than to any other of its early members for its origin and success. He was regard ed by all as a good man. In person he was tall, quiet in manner, cool of bead and I collected in speech. lie was a tanue.r by trade and his tannery was the most c-s tensive one in town for many years His shops and business extended down Jeilei son street, from Main, and the tan hark alter being used was thrown upon Jeffer son. This tan bark deposit and placo wa a favorite (.ne for exercise to the small b»vs of the town, particularly iu the exercise of jumping, and many were the contests there in "running jumps,'" iu the "hop, step and jump," and all the then other kinds of jumps. The leaps that were claimed to be made there lar exce< : the one made by the celebrated Sam. Hnnh when pursued by the Indians. The springy nature of the tan bark and tho soft places it afforded tor leuping aud lauding were however better than' Brady hail. But none who ever exercised on Mr. McKee's waste tan bark yards will lorget the ex citement and fun of the running, leaping and jumning done there In connection with his faunlng business Mr. McKee al>o had that of a meat market which was a great convenience to tho people of the town at that day. H« acted as a Justice of the Peace for some years and tilled other plaoos of trust. Bis'family although larfte became scattered aud no child 11"his is now living ir. or about Butler. Doctor J. Cooper MeKee, surgeon iu the Uuiled State.- Army, is probably his only chiid living. Be visits Butler occasionally and was last here two or three summers ago. Some grandchildren of Mr. McKee however are still here, being tho children ol his daughter, the lain Mrs. Alexander Mc Bride. • KEARXS—STKIN—CARNAUAN SQUARE. Cro.-ing Jefferson St. and continuing on West sido of Main, is the square to which we ve the almvo name. The late Mr. Palton Reams owned the first lot, on cor ner of which is now tho large dry goods, carpet and lornislrng storeoi Bitter«t Ral ston. and on the remaining parts the line shoe store of Mr. B. C. Huselton and tho dr»g store of Mr. Joseph L, Waller. Tne lirst recollection we havo of this cnner is a tin shop being on it. kept by the lato William B. Leininon, fifty years ago at least. The late George G. Koessing fcTsq. shortly after coming here was in part of this at one time with his cabinet maker shop, which part was moved away an<l is now the house, or part of it. in which lir. Pillow lives at present, i'in dly the ground was li'Xred of Mr. Koarus by the iate Mr. Martin Kc.ber a.td tho late Mr. Eli Yettor, who under a ton years lease erected tho briik store house there, latoiy much im proved and extended by Iho present Bitter £ Kalston firm. Messrs i&eiuor and Yettor kept a store there during their lease of iho 2ri>anil Mr. Button lCearns followed, keeping a store Uioro until ho sold to Hit ter KaUton, 1871. The CITIZEN was pub lished in the nppor story of this Kearns store bouse from IJHH t<> spring of 1872, the three last years of which time by the writ er of this, "when it was removed to its pres ent place of publication on Diamond.

J. L. Wullw 4r»« btaud was uiso u lrauao in which we litmh the late Mr. George W. Croiier had his, paint shop at one time. On the middle lot ot this square now stands the tine dry goods store of Mr Lewis Stem Soli] and the re-idence of Mr. George lieiber, (blacksmith.) Former ly the late Samuel C Stewart. Esq. had his cabinet making shop there Two I merchants named Parker .1 Donelly. who ! came from Ind ana. Pa ■ had a store there j about 50 years ago. We believe Messrs I Parker «fc Donelly when they left here re turned to Indiana. Mr. Stein and Mr. I lieiber we believe bought this lot from the I estate of the lat* Hugh McKee. hut before ' that it was piobai.lv part of the estate of I the late William Kearus, father of Patton and the present Mr James Kearns. Sr. Gen, Reed had his saddlery shop there for a time after leaving the Scott lot. Mr. Stein came to Butler about 50 year; aco and was lirst in bu-in< ss w;th tho late Mr. Bernard Roessing. The remaining part of this square was. 50 ycar> ago, and more, the property of the late Robert Caruahau. Esq. and hence the name we have given it. Squire Carna han was a cabinet maker and carried on his shop here previous to becoming a Jus tice of the Peace. The present extensive tin and hardware store ot Messrs Biehl and the present grocery store of Mrs Koch «fc Sons, now occupy this lot. Mr. Henry Wagner became owner of the corner aud built the brick there, now the Koch store. The late Thomas Burton £ Sons we believe purchased it trom Mr. Wagner, and kept store there for a number of years. It is now the property ot Mr. Charles Duify who obtained it from the Messrs Burtons. The Biebl part came through Squire Caniahan either in his life time or through his es tate. Both the Biehl and the Koch stores are now among the largest and best in the town of their kind. MCIJEI DE-LAS K-Ut'l'FV SyI'AKK. Across Main street is the square to which we give the above name. That of Mcßride will no doubt be as new to most of our present citizens as some of the names we have given to other squares. But fifty years ago, and more, the late Col. Francis Meltride owned the-lot-where now stands the Lowry House, and the first persons we recollect of living on this corner were bim aud family. The house that then stood there was a rather large log frame, used as a hotel and one of the oldest hotel stands of the town. Col. Mcßride we believe kept hotel there, between 1830. and 1340, and probably after he was Sheriff of the county. The next persons wo recollect living there were Messrs Marquis and Kelker, who kept hotel there about I*4o. They came from about Harmony. The present Mrs. Edward Melloiv of Zelienople is a daughter of Mr Marquis. Two of the Kelker girls married two ol the late Pearce men west of town. Silas and John. Be tween 1840 aud 1850 Mr Benjamin Niblock kept that house for a time, and probabh some others before or after him. About 1840 it became the property of the late Mr Saniul M. Lane.aud9oon after the property of the late Mr. Martin Reiber, who bought it ol Mr. Lane and in turn sold it. about 1850 to our present Mr. 11. Julius Klingler The late Mr. Jacob Reiber kept hotel then duriug ownership bis brother Martin and when he left there went to and kept the late Bcalty limisnC and alter keeping it a time went to New Castle. He is deceased for some years. Mr. Iftingler removed the old frame and i:l, 18S0 erected there the present thrca gti<p< >1 brick oil the corner, being rbe in the town, t Wffiiglbe old*, Court House was being hunt. the Courts were held in the basement'in i h«» then Presbyterian Church, and" rooms lop the juries to meet iu or retire to. w up of their ver dicts were obtained iu the new Klingler hotel. We recollect, as the then District Attorney, of cliniWn* up the stairs with a Grand Jury to oncof the rooms on the third story of Mr. Klingler's new hotel, not then entirely finished. Away up there the Jury deliberated, with the late Hon. Samuel Marshall acting as its Foreman. Mr. K'ing ler kept there until he sold to Col. Lowry. about 1804. and Col Lowry was there until he sold to Mr. G. J. Cross, when it was kept by Cross and MeOmber until again pur chased by Col. Lowry and kept by him aud sou Mr. John F. Lowry until recently sold to present owners. Mr. Howard Campbell aud Mr. John D. Brown. It has been known as the "Lowry House" since Col. Lowry lirst went there and still retains his name. Last summer it was enlarged by him and wins aud n».w covers the whole of this lot on Main street. To the middle lot of this square we give the name of Lane, the late Mr. Samuel M. Lane being the first person we recollect of owning it. He erected the house there, now the property of Mr. B. K. Roessing, in front of w liich he lias recently built his saddlery shop. Mr. Lane livqd about 50 year > ngo, and sold the property to the late Mr. James Campbell, who lived there until he sold to Doctor Stephen Bredin, who lived thereuntil he removed to Frauk lin Pa. The late Doctor J. S. Lusk then lived there until his recent death. Mr. Roasting* present owner, now lives there. The Doctor J. C. Redick drug store occupies the remainder of this old middle lot. The building on it was erected by Doctoi R. L. MeCurdy when living here. It is now the property of Doctor Redick and in which he continues his fine drug store, being one of the principal drug stores of the town for many years. The remaining lot of this square will readily be recognized by the name of Duffy. It has the same name now it had more thau 50-years ago, beitig one of the few original tots of the town of which this can be said. >» hile i! did not receive its name from its present nwt>er. Mr. Charles Duffy, yet the large brick block standing upon its whole front is d..e to, bis enterprise. In 1854 fie build part of it and l'n 180S enlarg ed it to what it n«»w ! is. His large dry goods and general Jtort- occupy two parts of it. and the Urge clothing and gentle man's furnishing store of Mr. D. A. Heck the other pact. 3 Where thUdargo I'lildiug. now staud*. 50 years g'iow, one story frame, in which a tore tfas kept by the late John and Peter Duffy. As has been stated here tofore. thev ficst-built and kept a store on one of the "Dougitr'corniks'when they cane ti> the town.

Tii*v w>'to recognia«iA by ail their fellow cit zeu.- as honest men in bu»ine>s and fair men in alt th< wafts of life. There are few men in this life who entirely escape enemies or censure, but we do not recollect of ever hearing tba name of either Johu and Peter Duffy spoken of in any other thnn that of respect. Mr. Peter Duffy was the farther of present Charles. He died as lato as 1883, at the age of 65 years, and is remembered a- a good man. He was Prothonotary of the eountyfor a term of that office, appoint ed 1833, and was previously the postmaster hi re for a term -of that office. He held other offices and posts of trust, always tilling them with fidelity to duty. Hon. John Duffy, older brother of Peter and uncle to present Charles, was an Associate Judge of the County for ten years, appointed ia 184' J. We recollect "seeing him on the Bench with the late James Borard, the dther then Associate. Jndge iJuflV was appointed to fill the vacancy created .by the death of Judge John Barker, (farther ot tne late lieorge Parker of Parker Tp. this county, and of Fullerton Parker, of Parker's Landing.

He was an honest, upright, temperate man and was highly respected by his neighbors. Edward W. Hays. Edward W. Hays, Esq. of Penn twp., Butler county, Pa , died on Friday, Feb. 27. 1891. The other eventful period, his birth, is not exactly known to the writer but it "must have been about 1802, and this would make him about eighty-eight—a good round age for this country. He was an American by birth, and truly American in manner, style and enterprise. In the prime of life he was engaged in the stage coach business from Pittsburg to Erie, and was a partner of Arthur McGill. McGill was once Sheriff of Butler county. He was a Democrat aud Hays was once a candidate on the Republican ticket, but his age was made an argument against him and he was unsuccessful. Mr. Hays lived on a farm in Penn twp. with his family, but was oftener in the ho tel business. He was always considered a good landlord. He kept in Butler. Pitts burr, Bakerstown and Talacava. He kept a licensed house for over twenty years and .et he never tasted whisky or beer. He was a strict tetotaller all his life, and while accommodating thousands with what was then the necessary he was never known to take a drink, and he used tobacco "in no form. His life was one of business, all business. It was his boast that he never was iu an opera house, a circus or a menagerie- Ho was, during his public life, a servant to his customers. He once kept a farmers' hotel in Allegheny City, he not only boarded the farmers but he had such a tact in business that he always helped them t<> sell their produce or stock without extra charges. There was a time when "Xud" Hays, as he was called, knew more men, and was known by more men than other man in Butler county. Every business man from Erie to Pittsburg was acquainted with Edward Havs. while his name was a household word in the greater portion of Western Pennsylvania. Before there were any railroads he would go to Washington on horseback and in stage coach to bid on the carrying of the maii from Pittsburg to Erie and other points. He was well known at headquar ters aud noted for his promptness anil re liability. His word was the word of honor, aud his word was law on all matters con cerning staging, which was the only -mode of travel iu those days. He was a man of very limited education, and ".is knowledge of figures was not suf fieient for the large business he transacted, llis long anil laborious siege in the stage business proved unsatisfactory to both him and his partner. His liberality and kiuduess to all left a balance on the wrong side of bis book, and the latter years of his life were spent on the farm which be occupied but did not own. He was twice married. By his first wife he had a argc aud well-to-do family, four sons and three or more daughters. Ky hi< last wife he had one daughter, the pride ol his old a«re. now the wife of Win. Kennedy, of Butler. Howard Hays for his temperance was rewarded with long life, his contempora.ies all died before him. When iie thought of Washington, all the contractors aud men he knew there and men that ruled in that day were dead. When he thought of the past, and his memory all alone glided by the old stand tin Pino Creek hill, then Tallycavey, Hak erstown. Glade Mills, Butler. Stone House, Krauklin, Erie, Ac., the old houses were torn down aud new mansions in their stead. And the landlords and all the neighbors were dead at every ten-mile station, as he called to see the folks. The sound of the locomotive whistle had taken the place of the stage driver's whip. And the young men he hired to sit on the boot and ply the silk have lived and died since that day. The old man felt lonely in the last days of his journey— the roads were neglected, the driver was sleepy, the horses were weary, the coach lagged, and at every cross-roads a shrill whistle of monopoly cried "Old man get off tho track." Tho last passenger bad left the coach, the sun was hid behind tho Western bills, the twilight was long, the road was lonely, nature was exhausted, but with nerves of steel and will of iron the old man late in the evening reached home and reclined his weary head on Nature's loving bosom to rest, to rest, to sleep, to sleep. THE French people must have their fun. The lite visit of the German Empress to their Capital worked thciu into a spasm aud they barked at her like a lot of dogs barking at a cat on a fence. At Barrisburg Wednesday it looked as though the Brook's law would be amended, and the school-book committee reported in favor of free school books to be furnished by the districts.

From millions of customers, during the past years, comes the verdict that VICE'S SEEDS never disappoint. Wby waste time, money and patience on others, when yon can bny the BUST at same pricef Make no mistake this year; send cents for Vick's Floral Quid*, deduct the 10 oonts from first order, and it costs nothing. It is better than ever; 100 large pages, colored plates, grand novelties worthy of cultivation. Cash prises SI,OOO and S2OO. JAMES VICK, Seedsman, Rochester, X. T. Keep at it Some advertisers are too timid. They spend a few dollars and icait to tee biff returns be/ore spending any more. Trade w as nercr built up in that tray. It w the house that KEEPS AT IT all the time that attracts the purchaser*. "Oh, yes, that's a mighty good scheme for the ncicspaj>ers.'" says the nonprogressive merchant. So it is, of course, for they get paid for giring the merchant pub licity, and the more publicity tlicy give him the more they should be paid. But as good a scheme ax it is for ths newspapers, it is a better one for the merchant. If any one doubts it, let him make a list of the most success ful business men in Butler, and then examine the papers to sec if they are not the most liberal ad x+r titers.
