The Constitutional Convention.
One of the strangest things done by the
last SUte Legislature was the passage of
an act providing for a Constitutional Con
vention, provided the people vote in favor
of it, and Gov. Pattison's approval of the
bill is just as inexplicable as the action of
Qnr fundamental State law is, by gen
eral consent, a good one. It is not perfect,
and no law aver mad* by man has been,
and therefore, its framers provided, in its
eighteenth article, for its amendment from
time to time, and til the trivial mistakes
found in it ean be remedied by amend
ments, that can be folly discussed and
voted upon separately.
But the proposition is to create a con
vention for the porpoee of framing an en
tirely new constitution, and for this, there
was no mora call or demand throughout
the State than than waa or is for a law
changing the State lines or the location of
the Allegheny mountains.
The bill originated in the Senate, the
body that unanimously sat down upon a
resolution favoring an amendment to the
National Constitution providing for the
election of United States Senators by the
popular vote, or in other words for remedy
ing the defoot in oar National Constitution
that creates the "machine " or confiden
tial system of politics that has been such a
corse to this State.
However,we take it for granted, that the
same mysterious power that pushed the bill
throngh both branches of the Legislature,
and eatued Gov. Petttaon to sign it, will see
to it that there are enough votes to carry it
throngb, and therefore it behooves us to
select the beet men who offer themselves
as delegates to the convention, so that in
the event of there being one, our present
and excellent fundamental law may not be
Whim the Nation, in general, rejoiced
and made merry on Saturday last, there
were some very end hearts in the land—
hearts made sad unexpectedly. Two rail
road aocideats had caused the sudden
death of two docaa persons, and the horri
ble deaUi b/ banting of several others. So
' long as human beings continue to move
heavy mssses rapidly, so long will there
be accidents, fatal to life. Railroad acci
dents may be said to be unavoidable, and
some of ns most die that the others be
moved comfortably and quickly; but we
think the day will oome when the publio
will refer with astonishment to the risks of
travel by rail today. Compared with the
momentum of a fast moving train the
superstructure of a passenger car is but as
an egg shell to the power of a trip hammer,
and we see no good reaeon why this should
continue to be the case, or why suoh
tremendous freight trains as the one that
ran into the rear end of the passenger
train at Ravenna should be allowed to be
hauled by one engine.
Cars built with iron or steel frames, and
trains of such siae aa to be always under
the control of their locom otirea should, we
think, be the role on all roads.
Habhibai Hamub, the last of our living
ex-Vice President#, died at Bangor, Maine,
last Saturday. He was brought np in the
Democratic foith, and served that party in
the Legislature of his state, in Congress,
and as United States Senator, bnt startled
his party and the Country on the 12th of
June of 1856, by riaing in his seat in the
Senate and declaring kis purpose of sup.
porting Fremont for President. The Re
publican convention of Maine, which met
soon after, nominated him tor Governor,
and in 1860 he waa put on the Republican
national ticket with Linooln.
Reeolotkme of Respect.
Resolutions passed by the Epworth
League of the M. I. church on the death
of Howard Bediek.
Whereas. It baa pleased the angels to
beckon from the shores of eternity to onr
beloved Howard Bediek, and while in the
midst of youth he has gone down to
Jordan's wave and crossed the resistless
tide to answer in the roll call of Heaven,
so when this corruptible shall have pnt on
ivcorruption and this mortal shall have pnt
on immortality, then shall be brought to
pass the saying that is written "Death is
swallowed up In victory."
Therefore, be it resolved that we express
onr appreciation ofbl* r.ssit, :f hi-fnead
, ship, of b<i as a member of the
Epworth League and a worker in the vine
yard of the Master, that we extend onr
sympathy to the bereaved family and drape
onr charter in mourning and that we for
th ermore take the thought that, "Life is
real, life is earnest." That "It is not all of
life to live nor all of death to die;" that
in his early and sudden death we are ad

Man oometh at an hour when ye think not.

Seeing the Big Circus.
What a handy thing it is to .hare a boy \
who want* to go the circus when yon feel
like taking a look at it yourself.
For over a year our boy Jim had been
coaxing for a look at the biggest circus iu J
the country, on account of the stories he j
had been told about it by some of his play
mates who were raised in or near it: and
so it came about that on last Saturday
morning a week, we were awakened by
the colored porter of a certain car of a cer
tain train and told that wo were nearing i
We dressed and got up. and found that j
the train was speeding through the swam I
py portion of New Jersey this side of Jer- .
sey City. Everybody got out, the porter
changed the berths back to seats and we j
looked around, at the country and at our
company in the sleeper.
The old rooster who had corralled the
whist party shortly after the train tad left
Pittsburg the previous eyening and who
had helped to keep up the racket half way
down the Juniata was quiet and contem
plative; the Pittsburg newspaper man,who
went one eye on things was inclined to be
talkative, and dilated on the section of
track we were running over and which had
taken the prize for years; the western coup
le on their wedding trip looked contented
and tried to look unconcerned; Dr. G. said
he hadn't slept a bit and didn't feel good;
Jim was bracing himself for a first look at
the elephant, and the others —well we
hadn't time to notice everybody.
The train rolled OTer the elevated tracks
into the new depot that the Pennsylvania
Company is building at Jersey City, and
we left it and went down the steps and
got on the Conrtland St. boat, and the boat
started across the Hudson, and Jim was
getting his first ride on salt water, and
looking down the finest harbor in the
At the station on the other side we left
Dr. G. talking to a man who wanted the
job of taking his baggage across to the Ha
vanna steamer which was lying at an Ea»t
river pier and was to sail at and we
went on up the street. The first thing that
one who has not been in the citv for some
years will notice is the elevated railroad-',
which on narrow streets occupy the entire
street on the level of the second stories of
the houses and so darken the first stories
that gas and electric lights are used all
day. They make the ground floor of amt
row street look like a
again a t
and the streets crowded,
coming "in great gangs from all
directions" like Teeters'hounds,and we were
sure something had happened somewhere,
and mentioned the matter to the first Bine
coat we came to, but he didn't seem to
think so, so we went on to the hotel we
had selected and got our breakfast.
Thon we thought we would Btart out by
locating ourselves, and went across the
way and up Park Kow to the World or Pu- j
! litser building and got in the little round
' and dark elevator, and were yanked up to
the top of it—and what a view one has
from there—New York, Brooklyn, Jersey
and hvf » dozen smaller cities; the homes
and workshops of four million people; the
Hudson, East river and the bay, the ship
ping and the steamers, the wonderful
bridge and the surrounding country mako
a panorama unequalled on this Earth.
When we were a boy we climbed up the
iron ladder to the gilded ball on the top i>f
St. Paul's and got some glimpses of Lon
don through the fog, and we havo seen
Washington, Paris and other inland and
seaport cities from a heighth, but from no
heightb can one See so great a variety of
the workg of Nature and of man as from
the top of the World building in New
York. The building itself is but little hieh
er than some of the adjacent ones, though
it is thirteen stories hifth, bnt the i r '-«.
dome, 150 feet higher, puts the sightseer
above all surrounding objects and those
who ride up -should walk down, and see the
printing offices, the restaurants and the
handsomely furnished offices.
Our next sight was the Brooklyn briJge j
—you go up stairs, pay three cents, and
ride over. The cars are propelled by cables ,
and there are two trains going all the time. |
We walked back over the footway which
rises above the cages through which the
cars pass, while the driveways are on
either side. This bridge is one of the
wonders of the world—that is one of the
wonders made by man—and as its chief
engineer was a Butler county Dutchman,
a citizen of this county can take a local
pride in it. .
A visit to Dr. G. on his steamer, a ride
up Broadway, dinner at an up town restau
rant, and a walk up sth ave. to the park
and back finished the first day for us, and
two tired fellows one of whom had not
slept iu the cars, were glad to get to bed.
All the big hotels of the city, with a few
exceptions, are now run on what is called
the European plan—that is you pay at the
desk for your room, and in the restaurant
or dining room for what yon order, the
price of each dish being printed on the bill
of fare, and you eat when and where you
A noticeable feature of all the restau
rants, both down town and up town, is that
they bring you hot, boiled milk for your
coffee, and if you try it you will find that
the hot milk makes a better combination
with the coffee, than either cold milk or

Lower New York, with its immense office
buildings on Broadway from Battery Park
up to the vicinity of the P. 0. and on Wall
street; the elevated railroads which are
constantly carrying vast throngs of people,
particularly in the morning when they
come in and in the evening when tbey go
out is a mechanical wonder; and upper
Broadway and sth ave. with their numer
ous large and elegant hotels, the palatial
club houses and residences of the million
airs, is an exhibition of wealth and gran
deur beyond the imagination of one who
bae aoi- «®eo it. The piost magnificent
hotei we looked into was the •• riaza near
the sth ave. entrance of the Park, and you
cannot see how they could stuff more
more in one building, the Vanderbilt resi
dences are grand and some of them rather
gloomy looking; St. Patrick's cathedral—a
marble structure built in the shape of a
cross—is beautiful, inside and out: and the
Grand Central depot, from the bridge over
the street back of it, from where one can
see them making up and starting out trains
for all the northern parts of the country is
an interesting sight for a boy.
Sunday is a great day in New York.
There are lots or churches there and part,
at least, of tbe immense population goes
to church in the morning, but a far greater
part, we judge, go out of town that after
noon. Transportation is the only cheap
thing about the place; the fare on the ele
vated, or " L." roads, as they call them,
for one block or the length of the line,
eight or ten miles, is a nickle; you can go
to Coney Island and back for 40 to 50 cts.
according to the Toute you take, and there
are a dozen of tkem; vou can go to Long
Branch by Bteamer and back same day for
75 cts.; you can go a hundred miles up tho
Hudson and back, or as far up Long Island
Sonnd and back for 75 cts. or a dollar, and
besides this there are excursions to country
places, and everybody seems to go some
where, Sunday afternoon. We wont to
Coney Island. After a late breakfast and
a look over the morning paper, we went
down to Pier No. 1, of the North or Hud
son river, which is just above the Battery
Park or Castle Garden; one crowded
stesmer started out just as we got there
and we bad to wait half an huur iu the
second-story of the pier for tbe next one;
and the pier was soon full of people, some
of whom amused themselves at the drop-a
nickle-in-the-slot, catch-penny, devices that
are being spread all over the country; then
tbe steamer came and we had a delightful
ride down the bay, through the narrows,
and to one of the great piers built out into
the sea from the beach of the island.
The sun was hot, and we walked along
the beach with our coats off to the fashionable
East End " Oriental" hotel, whero the
prices are put high enough to keep the
common herd away, theu we rode back by
tbe elevated railway to tbe Manhattan
hotel and beach, where hundreds of people
were dining and a few bathing, and then
back by a public railway, to tho West Oi
Brighton beacb, where all the circuses,
restaurants, concert balls and all the catch
penny devices you havo ever heard of were
in operation. Hundreds of people were
bathing there, and Jim and a Kentucky
gentleman who had made our acquaintance ;
took a dip together. The bathing house
is quite a distance from the beach; on the
lower fli or yon secure your bathing suit
and deposit your valuables, then you g" to '
your room on the 'Jd floor and change your
clothe*, putting the rubber bands holding
vour key and check, over yonr head and
around yoar neck, then you run down the
"runway''and hop into the water. The
water and wind were both cold and Jim
didn't stay in long, and then we took a
look around the place. There were two or
three kinds of mem'-go-rounds in opera
tion;. several kinds of swings; two in
clined circular railroads, on which people
were hoisted in small cars and then let
flicker down and around, and flicker they
did; an elephant restaurant and dozens of
others, some of them with concert hall at
tachments, and everything you could think
of to got the money out of the crowd. A
hundred Barnum circuses wouldn't equal it.
The steamers and trains continued to come
in crowded and by 4 o'clock that aiternoon
we judged there were half a million people
there, and they told us the season had not
yet opened. The ride back was also de
lightful; Bartholdi's statue of Liberty is a

us his chronometers and a government

it proved it by bis Waterbury.
Then we did Wall street and the Stock
Exchange, from the gallery ol" which you
look down upon the "bear-garden" so
called from tbe noise and fuss the fellows
make who are selling stocks upon tbe floor.
The Stock Exchange, Custom House and
Sub-Treasury, are all near each other. On
the steps of Sub-T.is a monument of Wash
ington, commemorating the fact that he
took his first oath as President of the
United States there. The Custom House
is a pillared, gloomy building, full of ofli
ces, and if you are expecting dutiable
goods on a steamer, yon roust go there and
swear to the manifest, and pay
the duties, get a release ticket and go
to the wharf and take the
goods away within a certain

into a store house and charge storage.Then

a few minute?.

woman who had a little baby in her amis

she cried, ''will no body do anything for
