Call for Meeting of the Republican County
The members of the Republican County
Committee are hereby requested to meet
in Huselton Hall, Butler, Pa., on Satur
day, Feb. 6th, 1892, at 2 o'clock P. M., to
fix the time for holding the Republican
Primary Election and for the transaction
of such other business as may come before
A fall attendance is earnestly requested.
A. M. Christlby.
J. A. Paihtkb, Chairman.
Meeting of the County Committee.
Tho Republican State Committee meets
to-day in Philadelphia for the purpose of
fixing the time for the State Convention,
and Chairman Christley has called a meet
ing of the County Committee for tomorrow
a week,—Saturday, Febuary 6th—to fix
the time for our primary, which will have
to be held a few days before the State Con
The resolution! adopted by the late Con
gressional Conferees will come before the
Committee, for adoption or rejection in
part or whole, and we wish to call the at
tention of the Committee to the wording
of the second resolution which is as follows:
Resolved 2. That each candidate for
Congress, at least two weeks previous to
the Republican Primary election in the
respective conn ties, shall send to the
Chairman of each County Committee in
the Uißtrict, a notice that he is a candidate
for Congress, and upon payment of the
necessary fees, said person shall be con
sidered a candidate to be voted for in that
county. Without a compliance with this
rule or resolution, votes in the said county
shall not be counted for the candidate thus
failing to announce. Our only ob
jection to it is in the words "At least two
weeks. " It seems to us that in order to pro-
Tide for the withdrawal of a candidate
who has no opposition in his own county,
that matter should be left open till the last
Another matter to be considered is the
propriety of allowing the party in the
county to name its choice for United States
Senator. Oar present representation in
the United States Senate is, we believe, a
disgrace and humiliation, not only to the
Republican party bnt also to the people of
the whole State, and as we now have, in
the candidacy of John Dalzell, an oppor
tunity of bettering ourselves, for God's
sake and our own, let ns do so, or at least
do our share.
NEARLY eighty years ago, in 1813— two
British men-of-war attaoked the United
States vessel Essex while she was lying at
anobor in Valparaiso harbor and disabled
and captured her. The people of the city
applauded the affair, and there is no record
of the Chilian goTernmtfnt entering any
IN Quay's case they(the libel suit ver
dicts)count for leu than nothing. He is a
man too deeply discredited to be white
washed. He seeks verdicts only in courts
where he can choose his own jurymen.
He has not dared to faoe facta where trials
are free. He prosecutes before juries of
his own, the newspapers of Pennsylvania
for publishing minor matters of a damag
ing sort in connection with the Bardsley
thefts, bnt he has never dared bring the
World into court for its earlier, more
■pecifio and immeasurably more damaging
aeousations involving Quay himself.
He is a man utterly discredited and no
verdict of a packed partisan jury can re
habilitate him.—N. T. World.
A Pair of Them.
An attorney of this town was telling us
the other day of bis disappointment the
first time he'met Senator Don Cameron.
He, of conrse,expected to meet a responsi
ble looking man, but was introduced to
one who in his opinion would have made
a good waiter in a fancy resturant. The
biggest thing abont Don is his mnstache,
and there seems to be enough money be
hind it to keep it in the United States Sen
But if onr friend was disappointed in
Cameron's personal appearance, he ought
to see Senator Matthew Stanley Quay—
Cameron is a beauty compared to him.
Quay is a small man, not overly stout,
with a big red faoe, and a small round
head, and there is no more expression in
that face than there is in a section of brick
wall. Many of our readers will remember
little Joo Kohnfelder, who used to keep
hotel at Saxonburg—well, take Joe, and
make bis face a little bigger and redder,
and make his left eye droop, and then set
him alongside of Qaay, and you couldn't
tell which from t'other.
MB. RODSKY A. MKRCUH.of Towanda,
is a candidate for State Senator in the
Bradford-Wyoming district. That all the
voters may thoroughly understand his
position on one of the leading questions
involved in the eleotlon this year he has
sent to the newspapers this open letter:
In reply to several inquiries relative to
my position on the Senatorial question I
will say, I am opposed to the re-election
of Senator Quay, and if 1 am elected a
member of the State Senate, I will tise all
honorable means to defeat him.
RODMBY A. MERCCR.
Mr. Merour is evidently a model letter
writer. His epistle is both emphatic and
explioit, and it furnishes a sample that
other candidates for the Legislature
might well oopy.
Joke an the Judge.
Here's a little bit of inn at the expense
of our highest county official that has the
virtue or being strictly true. -No doubt
the victim will enjoy seeing it in print as
well as our readers.
Hon. Aaron L. Hazen. one of the judges
of our county coart, met a sturdy farmer
friend from Mahoning township; after ex
changing formal greetings, the Judge in
timated that he desired to speak to the
gentleman in private.
"That's all right, Judge," said the citi
zen from Mahoning township, "but I want
to speak to yon, too, and aa my object is
quite different from yours, suppose vou let
me talk first." The Judge gracefully sub
mitted to the request for an audience, and
then was informed that something like
three thousand dollars was being raiaed by
the Baptists for a new church at Hills
ville, and a handsome subscription from
hn honor would be duly appreciated.
Thus the Judge was cornered; to decline
would have spoiled his own game, so he
promptly handed over a V, and proceeded
to pump the farmer is regard to the con
dition of fences out bis way.

The President's Message on the Chilian
President Harrison, on Monday. sent his
j long expected message regarding our
trouble with Chili to Congress.
After quoting what he said in his annual
message regarding the killing of the sailors
of the Baltimore on the streets of Valpa
raiso, and the legal investigation then be
ing held, ho goes on to lully sustain
Minister Kgan in his conduct during the
revolution; his conduct of the correspond
ence. and his action in sheltering political
He thinks the Chilian government re
opened the examination held at V alpa
raiso, after it had been practically closed
and continued it indefinitely, in order to
gain time, and he awaited their report
which has but recently been made.
On the 21st of this month he caused to
be communicated to the government of
Chili, his conclusions in the matter as
First—That the assault is not relieved of
the aspect which the early information of
the event gave it vis.: That of an attack
upon the uniform ol the United States
navy, having its origin and motive in a
feeling of hosility to this government and
not in any act of the sailors or of any of
Second—That the public authorities of
Valparaiso flagrantly failed in their duty
to protect our men, and that some of the
police and some of the Chilian soldiers and
sailors were themselves guilty of unpro
voked assaults upon our sailors before and
after arrest. He (the president)thinks the
preponderance of the evidence and the
inherent probabilities lead to the con
clusion that Kiggin was killed by the
police or soldiers.
Third—That he (the president) is there
fore compelled to bring the case back to
the position taken by this government in
the note of Mr. "Wharton, of October 23
last, and to ask for a suitable apology, and
for some adequate reparation for the in
jury done to this government.
He also called their attention to the
offensive character of the note they sent to
other foreign governments, and States
that he has notified the Chilian govern
ment that unless it withd raws this note
he will terminate diplomatic relations with
He refuses to consider the request for
the recall of Minister Eagan, until this
matter is settled.
He is of opinion that if the dignity, as
well as the prestage and influence of the
United States are not to be wholly sacri
ficed we must protect our colors and those
who wear them in foreign ports against in
sult, brutality and death, inflicted in resont
ment against our Government, and not for
He has endeavored to cultivate friendly
relations with all governments, but this
Government, while exercising the utmost
forbearance with weaker onos, must pro
tect its people against wantonness and
Besides the evidence in the Baltimore
case he also transmits that in regard to the
outrage committed upon one of the sailors
of a United States merchant steamer.
He has as yet received no reply to his
note of the 21st inst. and brings these
matters before Congress for such aotion as
may be deemed appropriate.
The correspondence, which dates back
as far as August 15th 1890, is very volu
minous, and would probably fill 100 pages
of an ordinary newspaper.
It is divided into three portions, the first
comprising the correspondence between
Bec'y Blaine and Minister Egan; that be
tween the Chilian Minister under Balma
ceda and our Government; and that be
tween Presidont Montt and oar Govern
CHILI SENDS A REPLY.
Since the message was sent to Congress,
the Chilian government has answered
President Harrison's note of the 21st as
Chili agrees to withdraw the offensive
note sent by Senor Malta to all the Chilian
Ministers abroad, and acknowleges that its
issuance was due to an error of judgment.
Chili also withdraws its request for the
withdrawl of United States Ministe r
In addition to this the Chilian govern
ment in its answer proposes that the affair
of the attack on the Baltimore 'a sailors in
Valparaiso be submitted to the arbitration
of some neutral nation.
If this proposition is not acceptable to
the United States government, the Chilian
government suggests that the matter be
submitted to the decision of the supreme
oourt of the United States.
The dispatches from 'Washington Thurs
day morning indicated the complete back
down of Chili.

to find that Mr. Phillips so highly regarded

Mr. Black left the impression that he
may be a candidate, and that then again
be may not. As for President, said he,
"James G. Blaine can have'the whole But

been for Blaine since 1878. Next to him

THE Democratic national convention
will be held in Chicago, Tuesday, June 21.
This decision was arrived at by the De mo
cratio national committee sitting in Wash
ington last Thursday night on the fifteenth
ballot. The early ballots disclosed that
there was quite a floating vote and this
after the first few ballots was given in
tarn to various competing cities as a com
plimentary expression. As to the political
significance of the selection the prevailing
opinion is that it is a straddle of the
Cleveland-Hill fight and favors, if anyono
a western man.

The Quay Libel Suits.
The case of the Commonwealth vs the
Pittsburg Post (a corporation), A. J. Rarr
and J. F. Mills, for criminal libel was i-on
tinue<l in Criminal Conrt Room No. I, in
Pittsburg, last Thursday. The defense
set up by the defendants was thft they
published the Bardsley-Quay certificate,
and commented thereon, in good taith,
having been assured by Attorney General
Hcnsel that the proofs of Quay s connec
tion with the Bardsley thefts was com
plete. They denied malice or negligence
and therefore claimed that under the cir
cumstances, the publication was privileg
ed by constitutional right.
The evidence was all in and the attor
ney's speeches were all made by Friday
noon, and that afternoon Judge Porter de
livered his charge, which consisted in
great part of a lot of as contradictory and
confuting sentences as wo have ever lis
tened to. It was so unsatisfactory that
the jury, after being out for an hour or
two, came back for further instructions
and after getting another dose of the same
medicine returned with a verdict of guilty
We happened to be in the court room at
the time and thought that several of the
Judge's remarks were open to criticism;
but the most extraordinary feature of both
this trial and that at Beaver, was the pack
ing of the jury; and this was done by
Quay's attorneys in both cases, by reviv
ing au old and obsolete statute giving the
State the right to stand aside two-thirds of
the jury-panel without reason. It is an old
statute, copied from the old English law
giving the King the right of challenging
as many jurors as he pleased, and its un
fairness and injustice haw* been so general
ly acknowledged that for many years it
has remained a "dead letter" on the books;
but Quay's attorneys saw fit to revive it,
and with its aid, they and they alone se
lected the jurors in the two cases. The
Post says it will appeal the case on this
point and we hope it will, and we hope our
next Legislature will repeal the law, as it
puts the partisan pres9 at the mercy of the
officials of the opposite party, according to
PRESIDENT HARBISON'S strong and con
vincing message to Congress on the Chil
ian affair, was sent to Congress Monday,
and itjwas well received in both Houses.
It was referred to the proper committees,
and will, without doubt be acted upon
promptly unless the Chilian government
makes ample amends in the meantime.
The butchery of the sailors of the Balti
more, while ashore on "liberty" was an
outrage that no civilized government can
afford to overlook. In this case it wonld
be an invitation to every petty govern
ment on Earth to insult our flag and im
pose upon those of our citizens who hap
pened.to be within their jurisdiction. The
Chilian government has acted the
part of the vicious cur in this matter.
It is a pity that such a government exists on
the American continent.
Election of Senators by Popular Vote.
National Tribune, 'Washington.
There is no mistaking the fact that the
proposition to elect Senators by the direct
vote of the people is rapidly gaining favor.
At least a dozen bills have already been
introduced into the House to recure that
result. That introduced by Representative
Bryen, of Nebraska, is attracting most at
tention. It contains the following pro
"Provided. That whenever the people
of any State shall through their Legisla
ture or by the Constitution of the State,
make provision for election of United
States Senators by a direct vote of the
people, then thereafter the United States
Senators shall bo elected in such
State by a direct vote of tho people, a
plurality shall elect, and the electors shall
have the qualifications requisite for electors
of the most numerous branch of the State
This leaves it optional with each State
as to how it shall elect.
Tho main difficulty that ire see will be
in getting adopted the necessary amend
ment to tho Constitution. Constitutional
amendments—State or National —are
notoriously difficult to get through. People
are exceedingly conservative in matters of
organic law, and it usually requires a great
convulsion, like that which brought about
the Thirteenth, Fourteenth and Fifteenth
Amendments, or intoaso and long contin
ued agitation, to secure any change, im
portant or unimportant.
The election of Senators by the Legis
latures —like that of the election of a Pres
ident by electors —is a relic of distrust of
the judgment of the people by the fouivlers
of our Government. We suggest that the
surest and quickest way of bringing about
the proposed ohange is a course like that
which reduced tho Presidential electors to
the position of mere political automatons.
Let the question of the Senatersbip be
made an issue in the State election im
mediately preceding the election of the
Senator, and all tho candidates for the
position be passed upon by their respective
parties, and nothing be left to the legis
latures but to register the will of the
people as expressed at the polls. It would
not take long to make this the established
custom all over the country, and it would
be as much unheard of for legislatures to
elect other than the popular candidate, as
it is now for a Presidential elector to exer
cise the liberty given him by tho Constitu
tion and vote for somo other candidate
than the one whose name headed the ticket
upon which he was elected.
FOR some years past foreign travel has

The Reporter-Journal is opposed to the
re-election ot Senator Quay, and for these
He has on several occasions misrepre
sented the State, and ho misrepresents it
now by his hostility to tho Administration
of President Harrison. He is comparative
ly useless as an advocate of the interests
of the State, and is incapable of debate.
And, most important of all, ho has been
accused of grave crimes and has not met
the accusation in the way in which an hon
est man should have met it.
These reasons might be elaborated, but
elaboration is not necessary. They cover
the case. And those reasons are sufficient
to determine the attitude of the Reporter-
Journal, as they should be sufficient to de
te-mine the attitude of its readers. The
great State of Pennsylvania should be rep
resented in the Senate by a man who is
not silent when the interests of the Com
monwealth are at stake, who fairly and
honorably represents the Statu, aud whose
character is abovo suspicion. ifono of

All Within the Party.
There are those who maintain that all
efforts for party reform should be made in
side the party and before conventions are
held; while after the decision on nomina
tions has been formally made all good par
ty men should abide by the action had and
support, in the party's name, the person
nominated or the declaration announced.
This is true so far as personal judgment
and preference are concernad, where ac
tion has been free and unbiased and the
will of the party has been voiced. It falls
utterly where any taint oflraud or coercion
interpose, or where convictions of right
are oppcsed. It is the favorite argument
of machine politicians, after they have
made a nomination, that everybody must
stand by their party,for the sake of harmo
ny and support the nomineejthat the thing
may not be just^right, but the place to se
cure a remedy in the future is inside the
party, and there is where the good work for
reform ought to and must be done.
in thisyear of grace 1892 a contsst
is on for the United States Senatorial nom
ination of a successor to Mr. Quay. Mr
Quay is a very poor Senator. X o man has
ever yet, in the five years of his Senator
ship, ventured to call the Junior Senator a
statesman or a patriot. He is a failure as
a Senator, and he opposed Republican pol
icy in his tailure to work for legislation
the Republican party was pledged toward.
Will the politicians join hands to secure
to the Republican party an able and cred
itable Senator f Will they .turn into help re
form the evils.under which Pennsylvania
Republicans labor -x having'such Senators
as we bavef Will they help the reform in
side the party t Are any of them ready to
turn in to aid in raising party character*
The moveineat in favor ot John Dalzell
for Senator was begun by Republicans, is
urged by Republicans, is indorsed by Re
publican newspapers, and is entirely with
in party lines. As to Republicanism, ex
perience, capacity, and devotion, Mr. Dal
zell is the peer ot any Pennsylyanian, and
is widely known to be so. Based strictly
upon the linos of reform within the party,
his candidacy cannot be assailed from any
point. It should commend itself to all in
telligent thinking Republicans and receive
their hearty approval and support.
If those who have talked most of reform
within the party mean what they say here
is the opportunity to back their words by
their actions. There is no question as to
Mr. Quay's inferiority as a Senator and a
Republican, and the general dissatisfaction
with his course.There is no doubt as to the
promise which Mr. Dalzell's record and
qualifications hold forth as to his eligibil
ity for the place. There never was an
easier or plainer chance for reform within
the party if the Republicans who support
this doctrine so ardently mean anything.
There is but one side to the proposition.
If those Republicans who are for reform
inside the party do not embrace this op
portunity it will be because their profess
ions were words only. If the movement
against Quay and for Dalzell shall fail to
effect a reform it will be a proof that
reform inside the party is an impos
sibility in Pennsylvania. Will Keystone
Republicans allow this T The answer
cannot be made in words but must stand in
THE Philadelphia Times in commenting
upon the action of the attorneys for the
prosecution in the late libel suits says:
The right of a prosecuting officer of the
county to stand aside jurors indefinitely,
even in the trial of a misdemeanor, is not
questioned, as it has been deolared legal by
the highest judicial authority of the State;
but it is so violent a departure from the or
dinary course of justice in our courts, that
it is regarded as justifiable only under the
most extreme necessity. In this city it is
very uncommon for the District Attorny to
exercise this prerogative, and it is a matter
of the gravest doubt whether the old com
mon law rule permitting it should not be
supplanted by a statute, permitting the
power to be exercised only upon specific
cause shown and the approving judgment of
Thi3 old common law rule reverses the
whole theory of our criminal jurisprudence.
Instead ofprotect.ing defendants in criminal
cases until they are clearly proven guilty,
it places within the power of a prosecutor
the absolute right to pack a jury whose re
ligious, political, business or social preju
dices or partialities may render a verdict
in disregard of the evidence. It is certainly
a most dangerous power, and should be
either absolutely repealed, or its exercise
narrowed to the discretion of the court
upon tho presentation of specific cause.

Angels call thee, our little darling,
Xever to come back again,
Xever more to love and cheer us,
Ours the loss and his the gain.
He has crossed death's chilling river,
O'er deaths dark sea his bark did glide,
Bnt not alone, our darling Johnny,
His Savior was his guide.
He led him to the port of heaven,
Where pearly gates stand open wide,
To his eternal home in glory,
'Tis just beyond deaths chilling tide.
He will never come back to those who
He has gone, he will know no pain,
E're his heart had known a sorrow
Before his soul with sin was stained.
Dear little lips too cold for kisses.
Dear little heart so free from pain,
Laughing blue eyes from whence the love
Will never shine on us again.
We would not ask thee back our darling,
Calmly, sweetly, sleep thou on
Till the voice of God awakes thee

LIFE DUNCE CO.
In the Superintendent's report of the investigation of the
Company the management is criticised for the way in which
its agency department is conducted, and it is claimed that the
Company is conducted virtually for the benefit of the agents of
the Company. With regard to the report as a whole, without
at present going into particulars, we remark that the severe
language of the criticisms is not justified by the facts as found.
Not one word of commendation for what is good in the very
large and successful results obtained in a series of years to be
found in the creation of one of the largest and soundest insti
tutions in the world. It is a notable fact that between Ist
January and 30tb June the assets have increased as per Com*
pany's report from $115,947,809.97 to $120,710,690, as
per Superintendent's report. Notwithstanding the severe,
and in many cases very improper, deductions from real estate
values and all other eliminations made by the Insurance De
partment, the Company is allowed by the report a 'surplus of
$14,708,675, which is within $190,000 of the amount
claimed by the Company January Ist, and in this comparison
no account is taken of the amount paid out as dividends be
tw*en January Ist and June 30th, amounting to over
$400,000. Practically the Company has earned more than
enough in six months to wipe ont the deductions made from
the assets by the Insurance Department.
The New York Insurance Commissioner's Report
proves that the
n YORK LIFE IS. CO.
Has a surplus over all liabilities of
Which is a larger surplus than is claimed by ANY OTHER
PURELY MUTUAL LIFE INSURANCE
COMPANY in the WORLD.
