Not A Quay Year.
The Republicans of Pennsylvania have
every reason to congratulate themselves
on the spirit displayed and results achieved
at the State Convention on Wednesday.
A cut and dried programme, prepared out
side of the convention and often by men
who were not members of it, has been im
posed npon the convention so often that a
free expression of the Republican senti
ment of Pennsylvania hasb*eomein recent
years the exception, not the rule. Last
year this method of procedure was pushed
to the extreme. Mr. Delamater was nomi
nated because he was the choice of Senator
Quay, and not because ha was preferred by
the convention. Th* platform contained
many things which were soon forgotten,
but one plank wa* never lost sight of dur
ing the entire canvass, and that was the
attempted vindication ef Senator Quay.
The result was that Pennsylvania's mag
nificent Republican majority of 80.000 was
converted into a majority of 16,534 for Gov
It was hoped that this lesson wonld be
taken to heart, and that Senator Quay
would be at pains to cvnid making him
self in any degree an issue in this year's
State campaign. For a time it seemed as iP
he intended to keep himself in the back
ground. He was reported as saying
this "is not a good Republican year,"
and his friends claimed for him that he ex
pected the party to he beaten, and intend
ed to keep bis hands off in th* belief that
the defeat wonld'he attributed to the want
of his leadership and council, and that a
chastened party wonld insist np«n placing
him more firmly than ever in the saddle
for the critical work of 1802. Whether it
was that he began to donbt that defeat
was the Republican portion this year, or
because he began to dream, or because
ho finds it impossible to keep quiet—hav
ing disencumbered himself ot the National
Committee chairmanship—and having
taken coonselwith Mr. Cameron at Done
gal, Mr. Quay undertookto run bis machine
again this year in th* old fashion.
But the maohin* Wonld not work. The,
wreck of last year seemed to have disloeat- ]
ed some of its Joint* and it failed to do
what was expected of it. The platform
published in most of the afterneon papers
Wednesday show what was intended that
the Convention should doclare, but th*
jflatform as adopted and published in Th*
Press of yesterday shews how far the will
of Messrs. Cameron and Quay failed to im
press itself on the coven tion. It was decreed
at Donegal that • slight shonld be put np
on President Harrison by an ostentatious
and unseasonable nomination of Mr. Blaine
for the Presidency. This (he convention
refused to do, It waa ordered that the
convention shonld declare for the Ire* coin
age of American silver. Mr. Cameron had
voted for free silver; had speculated on
on his vote, and is understood to b* inter
ested in silver mine*. The convention re
fused, however, to aid his speculations,
and indorsed the silver bill passed by the
It was arranged that there should be no
endorsement of the elections bill, which
Mr. Quay moved to lay aside at a most
critical stage in its progress and Mr. Cam
eron voted against at every stage. Bnt the
convention saw the omission and inserted
a ringing declaration for honest elections.
Chairman Andrews, who did Mr. Quay's
bidding last year, was ralegated to the
ranks and a man in whom the republicans
have confidence and for whom they can
feel respect was put in his place. Last
year the platform contained a cordial in
dorsement of Senator Quay's and C*m*ron.
This year the existence of those disting
uished statesman receives no recognition.
Captain Morrison, the nominee of the con
vention for State Treasury, obtained his
place in spite of Mr. Quay's oppostion, and
while General Gregg's nomination had the
doubtful honor of Mr. Quay's approval,
General Gregg is as little responsible for
this as is Mr. Blaine for the superservkea
ble efforts of Quay and Cameron to place
the President and hie Secretary of Stato in
Mr Quay should dream again, and per
haps he will see signs in the heavens which
will lead him to revise his apothegm,
"Not a Republican year." The indications
increase and multiply that it is going to be
a very good Republican ymr, and all the
more surely here in Pennsylvania because
it is emphatically not a Quay year.—Phila

TO MEMORY DEAR.
Butler's great welcome to the veteran
survivors of the 78th aud 100 th volunteers
and 4th cavalry.
The people of Butler never made a
greater effort to please, never succeeded
better or ever enjoyed a holiday more thor
oughly than they did Wednesday of this
The occasion was the union re-union of
the 78tb and 100 th infantry regiments, and
Our people prepared for the occasion in
every Way Beautifully decorated arches
were bailt over the streets, a great tent
was erected on the Diamond square, with
decorations, electric lights, etc, and tables
upon which a splendid feast was spread for
the six hundred guests that were expected.
Many of our business blocks and private
residences were also handsomely decorated
and more would have been had not the
supply of bunting in the town been
entirely exhausted Tuesday afternoon.
Oar streeU were crowded Wednesday,
no greater crowd was ever here, and the
day was all that could been desired.
The parade formed on McKcan and Jeffer
son Sts., marched north to Fulton, and
then to Maia, were met on Main St., by.
the battery, which had been delayed, and
eamo up the street in the following order:
Gen. G. W. Reed and staff.

j It was nearly half past twelve when the
meeting in front of the Court House was
called to order by Col. Sullivan. He in
troduced Kev. W. O. Campbell, Capt. of
Co. K, who led in prayer- Then a delega
tion of the P. N. M. 1., of Butler, under
the lead of Prof. Brown, sang "My Conn
try, 'TisofThee'; Hon. A. L. Hazen was
introduced and made the address of wel
: come to the veterans. He spoke of the re
! awakening of the patriotism of 1861-65,
thanked the veterans for choosing Bntler
as the place for their re-union, compli
mented them on their war record, spoke of
the causes and results of the war, and in
behalf of the people of Butler extended to
the regiments a cordial welcome —a short
and good speech.
Rev. J*hn Lusher, of the 78th, was then
introduced and responded to the address of
welcome. He referred to the heartfelt
greeting, said that the greeting tho South
erners gave them was fully as warm but of
a different character, patriotism alone
could move the people to such an outpour
ing; spoke of the causes and results of the
war, and of its cost in blood and treasure,
named the different battles in which the
regiments participated, said the hearts of
the soldiers were yet as young as when
they went to war in the May Day of their
lives; the result of tho war was lifo and
beauty for this country of ours, that the
groans of war were succeeded by shouts of
joy and our flag should be doubly dear; the
war taught us things about ourselves and
our coantry that we did not know before,
and oar aim should now bo the highest
good; the legacy of our fathers should be
i sacredly guarded; the war also developed
. the patriotism oi the men and heroism of
the wome and ho mentioned the cases of
Mrs. Gen. Barlow, Barbara Fretchie and
others, and thanked o*r people for tho re
ception given tbem. It wus a long speech
and a good one.

were announced; the choir Sang a selection,
and Rev. Audley Brown pronounced a
benediction and the crowd despcosed.
