THB Ohio Republican convention at
Columbus last Thursday, nominated the
following ticket:
Governor —William McKinlcy.
Lieutenant-Governor —Col. Andrew Har
State Treasurer —Willim T. Cope.
Attorney-General —John K. Richards.
Supreme Judge—Joseph P. Bradberry.
Member Board Public Works—Frank J.
Food and Dairy Commissioner —Dr. r •
B. McNeill.
In accepting a re-nomination, Gov. Mc-
Kinley made a ringing speech, in which,
among other things, he took occasion to
say that Democratic success had not ush
ered in tho promised better times; that the
prosperous condition in which the Repub
lican party left the country had not been
maintained; that business failures had in
creased; money fcQff become harder to bor
row, and feveristf uncertainty prevailed in
business circles. On the question of re
sponsibility, he held that if nothing % could
be done by the administration or congress
to relieve the situation then the Democracy
could not be held accountable. But he
contended that what was needod to restore
confidence was tho announcement of a de
finite policy. The president had only to
say that the industrial legislation would
not be changed and that the finances
would be so conducted as to preserve the
national credit in the future as in the past.
That would end the suspension and re
store confidence. There is only one way
to repeal the silver purchase law—and that
is for congross to get together and pass a
repeal bill. If that law is the menace
which Mr. Cleveland says it is he should
lose no time in securing its removal at the
hands of a Democratic congress.
As to the tariff, Mr McKinley contended
that if the Democrats were sincere in the
declarations and pledges which they have
made, they must destroy protection root
and branch. Those who wore ready to
take that leap in the dark should stand by
Mr. Cleveland and the Democratic party,
whilo those who were not ready to take
the leap should sustain the party of pro
tection. The Republican party in the hour
of defeat stood as firmly in defence of its
principles as when it achieved a victory.
The platform is thoroughly Republican,
both as regards state and national affiairs.
It demands full and adequate protection
to American labor industries and condemns
the free-wool policy of the Democratic
party, It indorses the declaration of the
National Grange "that all tariff laws shall
protect the products of the farm as well as
those of the factory." It demands a cur
rency of gold, silver and paper maintained
at equal value under national legislation,
and denounces the avowed purpose of tho
Democratic party to repeal the tax on state
bank notes and substitute the unsafe issues
of these banks for the safest and best cur
rency ever provided in any nation.
The New Holiday Law.
Tho act making tho Saturday half-holi
day an all the year round playday goes
further and codifies tho entire legal holi
day system ot the Commonwealth, not
only fixing and enumerating all the legal
holidays, but defining the method for pre
senting, collecting or protesting negotiable
commercial paper falling duo on any holi
day. The legal holidays from aud after
the approval of the act are New Year's
Day, Washington's Birthday, Good Friday,
Decoration Day (May 30), tho Fourth of
July, Labor Day(the first Saturday in Sep
tember), Election Day(the first Tuesday
after the first Mondny in November),
Christmas Day, Thanksgiving Day and
every Saturday after 12 o'clock.
The new holidays created by the act are
election days and the Saturday half holj
days between September 1 and June 15
The change s made in the matter of tho
collection of bank or other negotiable
paper falling due on a holiday is that it be
comes duo and payable the first seoular
day after the holiday, instead of the day
before, as formerly.- If a note falls due on
Christmas, July 4 or any other holiday it is
not collectable nor protestable till the fol
lowing business day. Sight or demand
paper falling due on Saturday is made pay
able before 12 o'clock on that day, but it is
not necessary to protest such paper tor
non-payment until Monday to maintain
the liabilitiy of indorsers or others whose
signatures may constitute part ol its secur
Whether the additional holidays pro
vided for in this act will prove beneficial
to any large number of tho working or
businoss population can only be determin
ed by the test of experience. The clear
and explicit provisious contained in the
act regarding the maturing, presentation,
payment or protesting ofcoinmorcial paper
is certainly commendable.
Gov. PATTISON signed the bill giving
Butler county $12,500 for a hospital, aud
also the bill giving Slipperyrock Normal
The Borden Trial.
At Bedford, Mass., Tuesday, several
lawyers who were attendiug the Borden
murder trial stated that unless thu pruse
cution presented stronger evidence agaiust
the prisoner she would never be convict
ed. *
Dr. William i)t>lau leoame I his testi
mony that day. The blows that killed Air.
Borden, be said, must havo been diverod
by a left-handed person, as they were de
livered from left to right. The blows were
of moderate force. Tho blows were, in his
opinion, one-handed ones, the hatchet not
being held in both hands at any time. The
Eerson who struck the blows stood at the
ead of thu sofa and in front of tue sitting
room door. Tho blows were of such a
character that the blood spurted all around
particularly upward. The hair was cut
clean and sharp, as though by a very sharp
instrument. During tho recital of these
ghastly details Miss Borden hid her face in
her handkerchief and seemed much agitat
ed. When she removed her handkerchief
it waß seen she had been weeping.
Mr. Adams gathered togetner all tho
bloody pillow-shams and sheets aud spread
them over the laps of the jurors in the
front seats. Juror Hodge fanned at the
sight, but soon revived.
A new feature brought out In the testi
mony of the doctor was that the murderer
struck some of the blows on Mrs. Bordou
astride the bodr. Either of tho two
hatchets directly in uvidenco could have
been used. The 2J-ineh cuts might have
been made by a lIJ-ineh hatchet.
Tho witness admitted it was a matter of
speculation about the time that passed be
tween the murders. Ho believed Mrs.
Borden was killed tally an hour aud a half
belore Mr. Borden.
The blody tale was too much for Xliss
Borden, and during a brief recess she was
led from the room.

The Disaster at Washington.
Another tragedy, less national in c har
acter, but involving the IONS of many more
lives and much more human snffering, has
stained the walls of the old Ford Theatre,
where Abraham Lincoln was assassinated
by J. Wilkes Booth iu April, ISCS. It is a
coincidence also, which will not escape at
tention, that this second tragedy occurred
on the very day when the remains of the
great tragedian whose life was so darkened
by his brother's crime that he never visited
Washington afterwards, were being laid to
rest in Mount Auburn Cemetry.
The house in which Lincoln died, on the
other side of the street from the theatre
where he was shot, and which is still sen
timentally kept intact as it was that fatal
night, looked down last Friday upon a
scene of agony, excitement and grief,
which even the great crime of 186") could
not parallel, and the horrors of the scene
were by no means lessened by the knowl
edge that a blunder, surely in this case
almost "worse than a crime," had caused
the death of from twenty to thirty persons
at least and inflicted maimings and injuries
upon fifty or sixty more.
The evidence as found in official
appears conclusive that as long ago as IS,->.J
this building, which the government pur
chased after the assassination and used as
an army museum, was officially proclaim
ed by Congress an unsafe depository for
even the inanimate skeletons, mummies
and books of the army medical museum,
for which a safer place of storage was pro
vided by act of Congress. Bnt notwith
standing the fact that in the public press
and in Congress also continued attention
was called to the bulging walls of the
building and its darkness and and general
unsuitability and insecurity, it continued
to be used tor the offices of JOO govern
; ment clerks of the pension record division
of the War Office. .
With a refinement of discrimination,
ho*ever, between what could be replaced
and what coald not be so easily supplied,
while the clerks were trusted in the unsafe
brilding the original records were retained
in the substantial fire-proot War Depart
ment building proper. So the comforting
official assurance is given that while thirty
clerks n:ay have been killed the pension
records are all saved and uninjured
The building collapsed in the midst otan
ill-iudged effort to remedy some of its de
fects. The moral of the disaster, if there
is any, is emphasized by the fact that there
are known to bo at least two great govern
ment buildings—the printing office and the
Winder building annex of the Vr ar lie
partment—each containing more employes
than were caged in Ford's Theatre death
trap, which are in an equally dangerous
condition. .
The hour of the disaster was very shoit
ly after the departments had settled down
for business. The workmen whose opera
tions under the building were the immedi
ate cause of ths catastrophe had been tink
ering upon it for two hours or more Halt
an hour earlier and few lives would have
been lost.
Men who were in the building say the
crash came without warning. Those on
the top floor were suddenly precipitated to
the floor below and the weight ot laliiug
timbers and furniture carried the second
and first floors with it. Fortunately onlj
the forward half of the floors give way.
The outer edges of the floors and the rear
part of the structure remained intact. The
walls did not fall. ..... . , ..,
The news that the building jau lallen
spread with lightning-like rapidity and
soon Tenth street and adjacent thorougu
fares were crowded with people. « itnin
an hour the news was Known ail over
Washington, and hundreds of anxious re
latives and friends swarmed to the vicinity
of the old theatre.
A general tiro alarm Was turned in a
few minutes after the crash, and then all
the ambulances in the city wore summon
ed. As quickley as possible the po.'ico anu
firemen formed a rescue brigade, and ready
bauds assisted them to take out the killed
and wounded. In less than an hour about
twenty-five people had been taken out,and
every few minutes thereafter some slili
form would bo boroe on a stretcher fiotn
the building. Police and army ambulan
ces, cabs, carriages and vehicles of every
pesciiption were pressed into service lor
taking away the dead and injured. All
the hospitals in the city were utilized in
caring for the injured, and scores of phys
icians volunteered their services tor this
The beginning of the inquiry of the Cor
iner's jury Monday into the causes which
led to the disaster at the old Ford theatre
last Friday was sensational enough to
promise exciting scenes before the end is
reached. Just a bit more intensity added
to the excitement, just a little more nerve
on the part ot those who led in the shouts
against Colonel Ainsworth, Ciiiei ol the
Pension and Records Office ol the \V ar
Department, and a lynching iu ancient
Willard's Hall, where the Coroner and his
jury were sitting, would have occurred
without a donbt.
There was a startling and sensational
scene in the inquest in the Ford's Theatre
disaster alter the recess. Charles E. Banes
denounced Colouel Ainsworth as intimi
dating witnesses, and immediately there
was a most threatening demonstration
against the Colouel Mr. Banes walked
forward, and, when close to Colonel Ains
worth, bhook his fist in his face and iu a
voice trembling with passion, cried out.
"You murdered my brother, and you
have no right to sit hero and intimidate
There was a dead pause. Then ilr.
Warner, one of the jurors, said that, owing
to the evident feeling displayed,ho thought
it only right that anyone who might be
implicated in this matter should be asked
to withdraw. Intens3 excitement follow
ed. Mr. Perry, counsel lor Colonel Ains
worth, got on his feet, but howls and
shouts from all sides drowned his voice.
In vain he appealed to be heard.
Excited men were shaking their fists,and j
cries of "murderer!" arose. Mr. Warner t
sprang upon a chair and appealed for j
quiet and peace. One mini yelled "Kill,
him!" another "llang him!" and a general ;
movement was made toward Colonel Ains j
worth. Finally ilr. Warner succeeded it: ;
quieting the storm, and the Coroner iiu- ]
mediately adjourned the hearing
The inquest began at 11 o'clock in Wil ■
lard's Ball.
Colonel Ainsworth, of the Record and |
Pension Division, had been placed on the j
defensive by implying accusitions that hi- j
was responsible for the presence of clerks j
in the old building.
Dr. Shaeffer, Deputy Coroner, conducted 1
the inquest.
After the hearing of several witnesses, j
who testified that the clerks stood in fear
of the Colonel, a mad rush was made in |
the direction of Colonel Ainsworth, when!
Mr. Warner arose, and, standing on his i
chair, begged for order. The sight of him
standing stopped the rush. Dr Shaeffer
directed Mr. Warner to take his seat, out
the latter refused, and, raising his voice,
managed to make himself beard. His I
first words brought quiet.
"This outbreak of feeling must be snp :
pressed," he .-aid, "not by the strong hand j
of the law, but by the hand of fraternitv
[Applause ] I appeal to you to have tail !
play as American citizens, and not to stain 1
the fair name of the glorious Capitol ol j
this Republic. I appeal to you in the '
name of the Master who reigns above."
The crowd fell in*4> Mr. Warner's way ol
thinking and cried "Yes," "Yes " lie saw ,
his advantage and made an app.-ul to let <
the question of allowing Colonel .\ir,s
wurth to remain be settled bj cool heads
When be took his seat, however, there was
more threatening uintterings. and Dr
Shaeffer quickly adjourned the inquest uu
til the next day.
The proceedings in the Coroner's inquest
in the Ford's Theater disaster, Tuesday,
were tamo compared with those ol tin
previous day. The spirit of Judge Lynch
has been quelled. There was ntil! a pnt
ty high t'eeliug manifested among the
clerks whose passions got the belter of
tbem yesterday, but no occasion fin an
outbreak presented itself.
Colonel Ainsworth was not at the session
this morning, but was taking steps to com
pel the Coronor to admit him unit his at
torney to a part in the proceedings. He
through hi* attorney, presented a pnti ion
for a mandamus upon the Coronor for the
above purpose. The writ was granted and
answer tiled to it. The decision of the
Court was withheld until next morning.
This step of Colonel Ainsworth ext ited
considerable comment. Bis friends do not
understand whv ho should be so anxious
to take part in the proceedings as long as
he is not on trial. Bo would surely be
called in the regular course of the inquest,
as a witness, when he could tell his own
story, but to act as a defendant when no
charge Las been made agaiust bim is
thought to be au evidence of fear that, the
finding of the Jury will be adverse to him.

The Free Text Book Law.
There were some mistakes in the free
text book law, as published last week.
The first section alone of the law of June
25, 1885, was changed and it now reads as
Section 1. "That School Directors or
Controllers shall purchase text books and
other necessary school supplies for use in
the public schools of their respective school
districts as such new text books and sup
plies are required in addition to those at
present in use in the hands of pupils or
owned by the school districts, out of the
school fund of the district, and when so
procured the necessary books and school
supplies shall be furnished free of cost tor
nee in the schools of said district, subject
to the orders of the Directors or Controllers
thereof whose duty it shall be to provide
for the return of and for the safe keeping
and care of the books, which shall be re
turned at the close of the annual school
term in each year, or as the board may
THE Governor has approved the bill re
lating to polling-places, passed by the
Legislature just adjourned, and it is now
a law. It provides that polling places for
townships must be held in the townships
themselves and not elsewhere. This will
make it necessary to change the places ot
holding elections in almost every rural
county in the state. In this county there
are eight election districts whose electors
vote in a neighboring borough. They are

Jac-kson East, Franklin, Mercer, Slip

districts it will be very inconvenient for
the voters to attend elections within their
district; but the new law is peremptory,
mul new polling-places will have to be
designated by the Court for each district

Far in the distant sunny South,
Disease had seized his form;
And vainly comrades strove to cheer,
With words of friendship warm. —
llis father hastened to his side,
And hope beamed from his eyes;
llis ono desire was gratified—
They brought him home to die.
Hardship and toil he underwent,
But bravely all he bore,
And never from the burden turned,
'Till lie could I car no more;
Then when disease had laid him low,
His lonely heart did sigh
For home and friends,and he was spared
But to come home to die.
Kind hands a stretcher made for him.
His wasted form to bear;
They brought him from the boat, unto
His home with tenderest care.—
They came just at tho closo of day,
But death was drawing nigh;
Aud ere the morn the spirit fled —
He but came home to die.
T .is thought may como tocheer the heart
Of every mourning friend:
That loving ht»uds in his last hours,
Could all his wants atteud;
Loved ones of Lome could cool his brow
And in death close his eyes
Could breathe the earnest prayer for him
Who had come home to die.
How sad lhe thought that far away
From home aud dear ones all,
So many on tho battle field,
Or by disease must fail;
More calmly could those soldiers bravo
Bid all earth's scenes good-by,
If they, when life was ebbing fast,
Could but come home to die.
Our Nation never can forget
The gratitude she owes
To all those brave and loyal men
Who conquered all her foes;
And when lor every fallen brave,
Tears fall from an eye,
Remembered then will that ono be
Who but came home to die.
