Senator Quay's Speech.
In hi* treatment of the tariff question Sen
ator Quay cogent -and forceful. He ,
speaks rigorously and effectively for the ,
industries of Pennsylvania. He protests
not merely aga'nst the ruinous reductions
which would be destructive, but against
the constant agitation and changes which
disturb and unsettle business. He is es
pecially forcible in showing that the inter
pretation of the election of 1892 a* a man
date to revolutionize our economic system
is absolutely unwarranted. There is a
subtle and perhaps somewhat sinister
touch in his gloved attack upon the last
Administration with which he was not in
sympathy; b*t, without regard to that, his
general argument as to the construction to
be pit upon the popular verdict is sound.
On one point his observations are particu
larly worth noting and show breadth of
view. Even if the Republicans had con
tinued in power the McKinley law would
not have been treated as a finality. They
would have made reductions as experience
demonstrated their wisdom, and proved
that it could be done without injury to
labor. But auch an intelligent and friend
ly revision is something very different from
the present deadly assault.
"With so much that is strong and sound
in the speech, it is the more to be regret
ted that it should be marred by the erratic
flight on a debased currency. On thi J
point Senator Quay's view is as novel as it
is erroneous. His thought is that, if
against the threatened foreign invasion
the protection of the tariff is to be broken
down, then we must substitute the protec
tion of a depreciated currency. We must
go to the silver standard. "If we cannot
have the tariff of oustoms," he says, "we
may have a ta*iff of exchange. In other
words, if we cannot bar ont foreign goods
by a forty per cent duty, we may bar them
ont by a fifty oent dollar. Mr. Quay's idea
apparently ii that by halving the dollar
we can double prices and so exclude im
ports. This might apply to what we buy,
but how abont what we sell! If imports
were determined by the foreign price, so
would exports be. If we had to pay for
eign sellers in gold, ooald not foreign buy
ers pay us in silver! If we paid double
price, should we not sell at half price!
And what sort of trade would that be!
Besides, for the sake of regulating seven
or eight hundred millions of foreign ex
changes, could anybody seriously think of
deranging and overturning $50,000,000,000
of domestic exchanges with all invest
ments, savings,bank deposits and so on!
Senator Quay evidently has not thought
out his proposition. But it is to be re
membered that it is only put hypothetical
ly. It is only suggested a« an alternative.
The mischief is that such suggestions en
courage the delusions and ialse teudenoies
of misguided people. If Senator Quay will
stand strongly and earnestly for bimetal
lism we shall all stand -with him. When
be stands for silver monometallism he
stands for himself. This is the flaw of an
otherwise sound speech. In his tariff dis
cussion Pennsylvania is at his back.—

A Startling Suggestion,
Senator Quay's speech on the tariff bill ia
noteworthy not only as the first of length
k liii-h he has made in the Senate, but it is
me of the most significant yet beliveted oti
this subject. Withoat any pretension to
oratory, he has shown that while his
tongue was silent his brain was busy. He
has thought deeply into this subject, and
with his habitual courage he does not
shrink from his conclusions. He suggests
that if this destructive bill is made the law
over our business, so that we are made a
oommercial dependency of Europe, it may
require a financial revolution to set ua free
again. It may compel a silver standard of
money which would so effectively interfere
with our foreign dealings as to give Amer
ican manufacturers a practical monopoly
of American markets, until all nations
wanting to deal with us would be driven
to a bi-metaliic coinage, with silver on a
parity with gold. As he expresses it:
It we cannot have a tariff of customs we
may have a tariff of exchange which at the
preseni price of silver would exceed 100 per
cent ad valorem. Thi3 would amount to a
Becond declaration of American indepen
dence, which would overthrow the contin
ued power of the dealers in gold in our
great commercial metropolis and the for
eign importers of goods, and isolate us in
the production of all artlclef which thi.
country is capable of mannfactunng or pro
ducing « ' * " If protection by cus
toms must fall I apprehend that silver
monometallism in the new world is neces
sarily precedent to bimetallism in the old
This ia a bold proposition, which, consid
ered in connection with the strong and
aggressive lorce at work for a larger u»e
oi silver m our currency, must compel
gome sober thinking. It ia wensational in
the shock with which it must bring home
to business men the full gravity of the con
dition in which the abolition of the protec
tive theory in our tariff system would plsce
ua. It suggests a desperate prescription,
but who can foresee to what desperatt
remedies a people groaning in extremity
may not turn, even to the revolutionary
expedient of making money with which
the importer would find it impossible to
buy goods abroadt Senator Quay hat
given the Senate a surprise, first in mak
ing a set speech at all, and second, in ad.l
ing to a masterly and destructive analysii
of the bill, which would alone make hit
speech take high rank in the current liter
at ore of the subject, a suggestion ol conse
quences beyond what any other upeakei
has ventured.— Pittsburg Times.
THE determineation shown by Senators
Cameron and Quay to force the free silver
question npon our next Btate ConTention
should cause Republicans all over the
state to question candidates for delegate
tothe convention as to their views in that
The Gazette of yesterday sounds this
Senators Cameron and Quay are malting
a mistake in trying to find an excuse lor
committing lhe next Republican state con
vention to a declaration in favor of Tree
rilver—based on the pretense that free
trade and the demonetization ofsilver have
been forced by England's money interests
now in control at Washington. The pro
position that protection and the free coin
age ot silver should go hand in hand, anil
that Republicans should make their cam
paign on that issue is fraught with
alike to the country and the party. That
protection will continue to be the policy ot
the country under Republican auspices is
as certain us anything can be, and that the
boon will be ei joyed without the sacrifice
of a sound and stable currency is equally
certain. _
Washington Notes.
In the House Thursday a resolution
was introduced and referred to Committee,
providing for a fine of $lO for every mem
ber present who relused to vote on the
pending measure.
In the Senate, Friday, Mr. Mitchell of
Oregon denounced the Wilson bill as vi
cious in almost every schedule. That af
ternoon the Republicans and Demoorats
agreed that debate on the bill should end
on the 23d.
That afternoon the Democratic caucus
by the emphatic vote of 80 yeas to 44 nays,
nearly two-thirds, swallowed a huge dish
of crow meat, and decided in favor of
counting a quorum. This is a complete
vindication of the stand taken by Speaker
Reed in the Fifty-first congress and of the
rules that governed the house at that time
On Tuesday the House by a vote of 212
to 47 adopted a rule providing for the
counting of a quorum. This overwhelm
ing vote vindicates ex-Speaker Reed's eel
ebrated ruling of three years ago, which
the Democrats denounced as infamous.
On Wednesday in the Senate, Cameron
of Pennsylvania under pretense of making
an argument against the Wilson bill, made
a silver speech.
Origin of land Titles.
EDITOR ClTlZKH— Kecently a friend made
the following inquiry of us by letter, to
wit: "How aid Mr*. Collins and the Me-
Calls get to own so much laud in Butler
This i* no doubt a natural inquiry to
many from the fact tbat tbo only history
we bare of thin county so far doe* not
state how Mrs. Collins came to own all the
lands she did in the county. Stephen
Lowry is spoken of as owning many tract*
of lacul in the county, and it it bad just
been added tbat Stephen Lowry wan the
father of Mrs. Sarah Collins then it might
have been inferred how she got her lands
These lands all belonged to Robert Morris
before they become the property of Steph
en Lowry. Robert Morris, a* mist all
school boys know, was a distinguished pa
triot of the Revolutionary war. He wan a
wealthy merchant residing in Philadelphia
lie w»s th« friend of Washington and aid
ed the cause of the Revolution and its
soldiers in every way be could. About the
close of that war the soldiers were in much
distress, and the then Legislature of this
State, in order to pay them for their
services, provided for the survey and sit
ting apart of lands in the western part of
the state for that purpose. By an aci of
1783 all tb« lands embraced from where
our western state line crosses the Ohio
river (now Beaver County), up that river,
north side to the Allegheny river, and up
the Allegheny to the mouth of the Mahon
ing creek now dividing Armstrong and
Clarion counties, thence duo west to nta'«
line again (now Lawrence county) and
thence south.to the Ohio river where started
were surveyed into districts, known as
Elders, Cunninghams. Jones, Nicholson
and Alexander districts of "Depreciation
lands". These lands were not really
depreciated or poor lands. Bat the cer
tificates granted to the soldiers for these
lands did become much depreciated in
value And here is displayed the patriot
ism of Robert Morris. He lifted and paid
the needy soldiers for some 311 of these
tracts of land. 107 of these tracts were in
this coui.ty in the Cunningham survey or
district. In 1807 Robert Morrin, to the
great regret of all then patriots, failed in
business and all bis lands were sold.
Stephen Lowry ,a merchant of Baltimore,
became the purcbasor at the sale of the
Morris lands in Butler County. Mr. Lowry
in his will gave them to his daughter
Sarah, who married Thomas Collins, Esq
and bonce became the expression of the
"Collins land." The Collins lands all lay
from a line about four miles north ol
Butler down to and embracing moat or
part of Centre, Oakland Summit, Butler,
I'enn, Middlesex, CMinton, Buffalo, Win
field, Clearfield and Donegal townships,
and including whero Butfor town now
As to the lands of Archibald McCall,
Chew and others,in this county, these par
ties were speculators or what were known
as land jobbers and bought or get their
lands in tbat way. Mr. MoCall was also a
Philadelphia merchant and urobably in
herited bi* land, much of which lay in
what is known as the "Donation District,"
North of the "Depreciation" districts and
which waa also donated to soldiers of the
The above is as full an answer to the in
quiry of our friend as we ara Able to give
at present, and hope is satisfactory.

End of the Pollard-Br eckenridge Suit
The most noted breach of promise trial
u the history of the century ended at
Washington, D. C., last Saturday. MaJ e
ine Pollard, for her nine years of shame
ind tor her disappointment in her prospect
>f marriage, was awarded the verdict and
Congressman Breckinridge, who sowed
wild oan at a too matnrc age, must pay
lor the harvesting the sum of $13,000.
This is the jury's decision. For six week<
this fuit was a flowing fountain of filth,
spreading its myriad streams of pollution
throughout the land. Months before the
case opened in court both parties to the
rait were anxiously making use of every
opportunity to get their points and argu
ments before the pnblic.
Judge Wilson closed his address a few
minutes after the court bad resumed its
iftemoon session, Saturday. Then Judge
Bradley began bis charge to the jury. In
the opening it seemed to be extremely lib
oral, and was not as much in favor of the
plaintiff as expected, but when the absolute
instructions were made it seemed difficult
to see how the jury conld fail to find for
the plaintiff. In the early part of his
charge he stated that the only question to
be answered was whether there was a valid
contract of marriage and whether that was
broken for any sufficient reason. The law
and the facts were all that the jury should
consider. . _
It was inaccurate to say that the com
munity at large was a third party to the
case. Except to see that justice was done
between the parties the world at large had
no interest in the case. Public opinion
shonld not weigh a featherweight;abstract
principles were not to be vindicated, nor
the country girl, the home and the family.
The question of the duty to society, the
punishment of either party for improper re
lations or for outrageing the proprieties
and customs of life are not to be consider
ed The efforts to work upon the mind of
the jury by sentiment and their doty to hu
manity and society must be disregarded
and the plain question as to whether there
was an agreement of marriage, accepted in
good faith by her and broken by him, un
less for sufficient reason He then in
structed the jury: .
pj r gt—if there were mutual promise.-- of
marriage that wonld constitute a contract.
If the defendant married another after the
contract it would be a breach of contract.
It is not sufficient defense that she had im
proper relations with another person prior
to this contract if the defendant knew that
fact when he made that contract. Nor is
the fact that she continued her relations
with the defendant a sufficient defense.
Second—The claim that he made the
contract in bad faith is no defense if she
believed and accepted it in good faith
Third—Her conduct must be considered
by way of determining whether she ac
cepted it in good faith.
Fourth—lf he made such promise and she
ac cepted it the burden is upon him to show
sufficient cause for breaking the contract.
Fifth —The claim that she had improper
relations with any person prior to the mar
riage contract is not ground for its being
broken if the defendant knew of these re
lations at the time be made the contract.
Sixth—lf the plaintiff had told him ol
her relations with Rhodes prior to tbeii
engagement, the fact of such relations can
not be pleaded for breach of contract.
Seventh—The fact tnat he had made a
secret marriage after only a portion of thf
promises were made is not sufficient war
rant for the violation of the contract.
Eighth— ll Le made a promise of mar
riage to plaintiff after his marriage and she
did not then know of his marriage, the
fact of such prior secret marriage wonld
not be a sufficient defenso.
Nineth—Tbe jury must consider the
pecuniary condition of the plaintiQ and
defendant, and the advantages the plain
tiff wonld have gained by the marriage, ia
fixing the amouut of damages.
Tenth— lf the charges against her chas
tity wero not made in good faith, but
merely to prejudice her case, this must be
considered in fixing her amount of danr
ages, which, however, must not exceed
$50,000. , , ,
In explaining the instructions the Judgt
said there must be grosser impropriety
than that testified by Julian regarding t
mock marriage to form an excuse to fulfill
a marriage contract, and he quoted Juliam
testimony. Lewd and lascivious conduct
meant more than Julian had testified to, oi
Rosell, who told only of such act* as wert
common between people engaged to b<
To sura it all up, if a contract was liol
made, or if it was agreed to with the uu
demanding that it was not to bo carried
out, the verdiot should bo for the defond
ant. If a contract had been mado aui
broken, they were to find for the plaintiff
awarding such damages as they saw fit
Their verdict must be formed upon the pre
ponderanoe of evidence.
The oaso then went to the juiy. \vhil<
the jury was out, Col. Breckenridge an.
his counsel strolled outside, and directly i
barouche, containing his wife and daugh
ter, drove up. lie chatted a few minute
with them as the crowd looked on, am
they drove away. At 4:40 there was i
stir about tbe courtroom, tho crowd hasti
h put iUelf in order and tho jury filed iu
"Gentlemen," said the olerk, "have yoi
reached a decision?"
"Wo have," said the foreman, "wo Urn
I for the plaintiff.''
"What amount of damages,' asked tb
clerk? , .
I "Fifteen tboniaud dollars," was ibo re
There was a profound sileuoe for a mo
ment, as the Judge had warned the spec
tators that there must be no demonstra
tion. Col. Breckenridge, who had witl
his long experience evidently seen in th>
countenance* of tbe jury the adverse ver
diet, did not move a muscle or change ex
pression "flow much damages?" he ahk
ed of Phil Thompson, as he had not fullj
caught tho statement of the foreman. '1 hi
reply of Thompson made no change in hi
expression. Ma). Bntterworth asked ho«
long they would have for a motion for
motion for a new tiial, and was told tha
four days would bp allowed. lie said i
motion would be made at the proper time
Then the judge thanked the jury and tai
case ended. Meantime Mr, Carlisle, tin
junior counsel for Madeline Pollard, hai
hurried across the street to his office
where the plaintiff awaited the verdict
When he told her she did not make i
soeiie—there were no tears and no fainting
but she shook bands over and over agait
with her counsel and thanked them cord
ially and earnestly PeopU began to droj
In, and soon she was given ao orfttlon
At tbe same time Mr. Breckinrldg" stroll
ed out of the courtroom, laughter when H
newsboy tbrtul an "extra" with the ver
diet under nose, bought the paper and
turned his face homeward, accompanied
by his eon.
Neither Mr. Breckinridge nor Miss I'ollard
will consent to an interview.

Coxey's March,
Thursday night the army camped at Ad
liaon in Somerset Co .where they were en
tertained by a farmer named Augustine,
nuch against his will, as the original con
tract was misunderstood by him.
Next day the army marched across the
ine into Maryland, and camped that night
kt Grantsville.
During the march from Grantaville to
Frostbnrg next day "The I nfcnown and
Browne got into a dispute, Coxey was
iway, and the army deposed Browne and
put the unknown, whose name is Smith, in
command. The details of this affair are
jiren a? follows.
Browne, jealous of Smith's command
jver the men, has never let an opportuni
ty to humilliate the Unknown go by unus
»d The big Swede has suffered in silence
Sut the vindictive expression on his face,
when under Browne's cowardly la3h, and
the mntered curses he bestowed on the
jead of the leather-coated scamp, told too
plainly that he was treasuring up his
wrath and waiting for an opportunity to
let it burst forth to the entire route of his
3nmy. On the road near Grantsville, these
wo leaders, who are striving so nobly to
aring the kingdom of heaven on earth, en
raged in a brawl and created a scene,
which came near raising tie atmosphere of
brimstone on the spot. They got into a
iispute about the clash of authority, back
it the Maryland line, when Browne over
ruled Smith's order. In the discussion
Smith intimated a desire to tap Browne 8
carcass in various unwashed spots, not
they were separated before the I nknown
could carry his laudable threat into execu
tion. That morning when the army start
ed for Forstburg, Smith was sullen and
Browne "drunk as a boiled owl. Courier
the big gray stallion had been put to work
in the wagon on account of the heavy hills.
and "Greasy" disported his jag astride a
bony nag. picked at random from one ol
the vehicles. His moonshine soake. con
dition allowed full sway to every builyinf
and vain characteristic. Whenever a gap
ing crowd of mountaineers was passed,
however small, Browne would call a hall
and in all. the glory of his greasy coated pro
portions would go through one of his dis
tempered pranks. The groups were close
together and the march was one successiot
ol spasmodic starts and halts. Ihe mei
ttrew disgusted and when the Summit o
Big Savage mountain was reached the;
were ready for a revolt. One ot the com
mand's to halt was given at this place
Smith, not hearing the order, and not un
derstanding the halt, orderer the eolumi
forward. To show his superiority of com
mand Browne in a thick tongued, abusivi
tirade, told Smith that he was in commam
and he wanted no interference. Thisae
Smith wild. Rising in his saddle he turn
ed to the men and howled:
"Members of the commonweal, thi
thing must be settled once for all! Wil
you have tor a leader Smith, the man win
has led yon, taught and drilled you, o
this leather-coated skunk ?
One man threw up his head and yelled
for "Smith!" Tho name ran down th
line like a spark along a train of powder
They howled for Smith. .
• •Very well, then it is Smith. rill in
commonweal. Forward. March.' Th
exoited men who had crowded around th.
leaders during the storm fell into place
and sot l'jrtb for the town. tveri
oomuiissiouary wagon had adherents o
Browne's on it and they refused to move
Smith, noticing this, halted tho column
ordering the marsballs of every coinmun
to send four men each to the wagons. I
was done and willing hands grapsed th
the bndles, lashed the horses and in spit
of the protests ol the half frantic teamster
hustled the wagons on toward town. Thi
last move made by the L nknown, exhibit
ing, as it did, the tenacity with which h
held the men together, made Browne fairl,
wild. Swearing that he would secure war
rants for the arrest of Smith and Jessi
Coxey, bis staunch supporter. Brown
jumped into Coxey's buggy, lashed th
spirited animals and started down the hil
at a dead run. Tho army then continue;
its inarch to towu. At tho foot of the lull
obout a mile lroin the scene of revolt, th
army saw a startling sight. Coxey s pbii'toi
was overturned by the roadside. Onoof th
fine broodmares that drew it was standin
near the Hcene ol wreck, and Browne wa
staring wildly into spaee. When the col
umn came up he howled for his steed,
was given bim by an act of courtesy
Mounting it "Cireasy" made another wil
break for town Hero he met Chi'.ds, th
advance agent, whose methods in th
hotels along the route brought down
merited and personal reproof from the r«[
resentative* of the press. Brown Iran' l '
lly unfolded bis tale of trouble. Uiil.l
joined forces with bim.
When Sinitti —leaving Oklahoma Sain ..
care for the exhausted horse—marched th
army into to AU, neither Browne nor tli
strutting absurdity with him would te
where the army was to camp, but by dii
of persistent inquiry it was learned tb«
the citizens had aligned them tho use <

u.and quarters were prepared, the hors t
put up under lock and key in a barn an

The Swamp Angel Road.
(The following communication, mailed
at Prospect, is annoaymous.but as its«em*
to be good-natured, we publish it.)
EDITOR CITIZEN: —There was an article
appeared in a recent issue concerning the j
Swamp Road, by an unfathomable blind to 1
the innocent public. The Philosopher has I
built an air castle based upon the corduroy ;
Eart of the road, this being upheld on the j
acks of those swamp horses (commonly j
known as the mud turtle) and other water
fowls. He now has surmounted every
imaginary obstacle and seated himself on
the topmost pinnacle aad driven his swamp
horses to Cutler to try to get said road dis
annulled, with the plea that it is not in
the right place, and again that it is not
yet completed, also that the viewers ap
proximate cost was too low for the Com
pletion of said road.
Before there was any talk of viewing
said road, Unionville had been the site of
a creamery, the road was to be a short
route from the creek to said town, and now
since the creamery has been a failure and
the Swamp Angels have their swamp
drained by an extra tax on the tax payers
of Franklin township, they are wanting
said road to be disannulled. If that load
is disannulled there «rill be several other
swamps drained on the same plea, unless
those persons who petitioned to Court for
the view pay back full face of amount ex
pended on road already. The viewers ap
propriate cost of construction was S2OO,
but I think they wanted only to drain the
swamps with one draiD. Now they have
two good ditchas. and they had the pleas
ure of seeing us fellows floating around on
the back of a swamp horse trying to make
a ditch around Lizard Bend. Of course
they had their tax worked out on the bet
ter part of the road."
Ido hereby make a motion that if the
Philosopher's scheme works well that all
sign boards in the county shall be draped
in mourning for at least thirty days. I
respectfully write the opinion of all per
sons concerned. Your Servant,
Black Bird Paradise.
