FOR JURY COMMISSIONER,
HBSRY W. NICHOLAS.
As we show onr inner selves by our
acts, so as Americans, we show our nation
al characteristics to a great extent by the
observance of Memorial Day, which it
would seem, in the natural order of things,
would lapse and be forgotten. That this
gains in reverent feeling each year, speaks
well for the American people.
The day is well selected, as to season,
for consecrating with flowers and tears,
and loving memories, the.brave lives that
went out for their country. It is fitting
that amidst the sunny peace of May,
amidst its flowers and green grass, with
the smiling blue and gold above, we hal
low the memory of the dead heroes.
Thero is no longer any thought of the
bitterness engendered by the war. To
gather they lie to-day, blue and gray, and
together north and south weep over the
forms that are gone. Not forgetting that
we were forever right and they forever
wrong we eliminate all enmity from onr
recollection. Together we stand, as to
gether they fought, brothers; now with the
broad principles of human liberty and
freedom before us. ...
It is the good fortune oi memorial day
that its date marks no anniversary of the
great and bloody battles of the civil war.
It need not be pointed out that hardly a
day in the calender ia without its record
of battle, or skirmish during the constant
four years struggle, and May was an espec
ially favorable time for operations. Never
theless it so happens that the conflicts ol
the 30th were of a minor character, and
none of the great conflicts took place on
that day. . ,
If, then, the selection ot this season lor
memorial ceremonies is made felicitous
through the fact that now all over the
north the wealth of flowers is at its fullest,
it becomes doubly so with the feeling that
this, the only public holiday based on
events of the late war, commemorates no
great victory or defeat which might bring
bitter memories to any portion of our
countrymen. Let it be a memorial not of
the strife, but of the peace that followed,
and may it continue to be celebrated
The State Convention.
Two thousand persons were present in the
hall at Harrisburg, Wednesday noon when
the Republican State Convention was
called to order, and 257 delegates answer
ed to their names. Only seven districts
Ger. Wagner waa elected Temporary
Chairman over Ma). McCaully, by a vote
of 183 to 64, Lyman D. Gilbert was made
Chairman of the Committee in Resolutions,
and Evrerett Warren Chairman ol the Com
mittee on permanent oiganization, and the
Convention took a recess till 1:30.
In the afternoon Dr. Flood was made
permanent Chairman; Gen. Beaver nomi
nated Gen. Hastings lor Governor, C. E.
Smith seconded the nomination and the
convention by a rising vote made the nom
C. L M agee nominated Walter Lyon for

nominated Jack Robinson and Lyon was
nominated by a vote of 193 to 62.

After Grow and Huff were placed in
nomination for Congressman-at-Large,
S. H. Miller, of Mercer Co., nominated
Maj. McDowell, but McDowell withdrew,
and the two first were nominated.
All the candidates appeared before the
Convention and spoke; the platform was
read and approved, and the Convention
The platform reaffirms the plank of 1893
calling for an expansion of the circulating
medium to S4O per capita, and also re-af
firms the financial plank ol" the Minneapo
lis platform. It charges that the threats
and efforts of the Democratic party to de
stroy the protective system have wreoked
our manufacturing establishments, destroy
ed the value of our farm products, ruined
our employers, beggared our workingmen,
and brought distrust upon the honesty of
their proposed legislation The Democratic
assaults upon our industries embodied in
the pending tariff legislation are strongly
denounced, and the platform approves the
efforts of our Senators and Representa
tives to delay and defeat such legisla
The choice of a Southern Democrat as
Secretary of the Interior is characterized as
a deliberate betrayal of the welfare of our
soldiers and sailors, and the persecutions,
suspicions and privations to which they
have been subjected under that hostile ad
ministration are deplored. The Cleveland
administration, the platform declares, has
realized the worst apprehensions of those
who opposed its election. It has shown
incapacity to govern, alike in foreign and
domestic affairs, incapacity to wisely ad
vise even its own party followers, so that
Democratic Congressmen are adrift upon
all questions where the power of public
patronage does not compel them to think
alike. Majorities are justly chargeable
with all the affairs ot government, but
majorities which were premitted to drift in
tho sea of impotency deserve the contempt
of all thoughtful citizens.
President Cleveland is denounced for
his Hawaiian and Samoan policy. A more
stringent system of immigration laws,
which would prevent criminals, paupers
and persons physically or mentally incap
able of supporting themselves coming to
this country, is demanded. The platform
recommends such changes in our natural
ization system as will deny the rights of
American citizenship to Anarchists, and
all other hostile to our government and to
the liberty of the law upon which it is
Failed to Agree.
The national convention of bituminous
coal miners and operators called to attempt
a settlement of the miners' strike ended at
Cleveland, last Thursday. There was not
a sufficient number ot operators represent

ance of the policy mapped out at their
national convention in Columbus, refused
to make a settlement and the strike will

At tbo conference of the 27th district
held at Kane, Thursday Chas. W. Stone
was renominated for Congress,
On Thursday of last week the Democra
tic leaders of the Senate concluded to
force the fighting in the tariff bill. Harne
tried to secure a continuous session, the
Republicans broke a quorum, absent mem
bers were sent for. dilitory motions made,
and the Senate did not adjorn till 10.30
that night. During the day a committee
of fire, consisting of two Democrats, two
Republicans and one Populist was ap
pointed to investigate the charges of bribery
and as to whether any Senator had been
speculating in sugar.
On Friday Senator Gray returned to
Washington, and expressed an unwilling
ness to accept the chairmanship of the
Investigating Committee, but was finally
induced to accept.
Mr. Gray realised that if he accepted thu
appointment which was conferred upon
him during his absence he would be oblig
ed to ask a great many unpleasant and di
rect personal questions of those of hi*
Democratic associates on the floor of the
Senate whose names have been connected
by current report with speculation in sugar
As a friend of the Cleveland administra
tion, Mr. Gray also realized that an investi
gation sincerelv conducted of the histoty of
the tariff bill and of the formation of the
sugar schedule might lead to revelations
which would reflect disatroasly upon the
conduct of the campaign which resulted in
the second election of Mr. Cleveland, ror
these reasons Mr. Gray was very unwilling
to serve and he privately expressed this
unwillingness to several Democrats.
Then the Senate agreed to begin its ses
sions at 10 A. M.. and went to work on the
Tariff Bill, and disposed of five more pages.
Coxey, Browne and Jones were sentenced
to 20 days in jail, and the former two fined

On Tuesday the iron schedule furnished
material for the most interesting debate
yet had on the tariff in the Senate. Seven
paragraphs were passed upon that day, and
the spirit of concession seemed stronger
among the Democrats than ever before.
The classification of certain forms of iron
used in the McKinley law was adopted in
two or three paragraphs. The rates were
reduced, but specific duties were pretty
generally retained. The offering of the
new schedule was somewhat of a surprise,
and the Republicans were dazed for a while.
The dam at Horse Shoe Curve, above
Altoona , well known to all travelers over
the Pennsylvania railroad, burst on Sun
day night, thirteen teet of it being earned
away. The people living below had ample
time to get away. Rains fell heavily all
Saturday and Sunday and it is feared the
whole dam will go. The city of Altoona
gets its supply from this body of water.
At Williamsport very high waters pre
vail and there was much fear of a recar
rance of the floods of 'B9. Bradford, Bel
lefonte, Jamestown N. Y. Dußois and
other points report heavy floods.
Pittsburg had high water with higher ex
pected, and coal operators would ordi
narily have been glad to see shipping
stages, but their was no coal to go.
The Conemaugh was higher than since
the great flood. Much damage was done
and one boy lost his life.
The papers on Tuesday contained still
larger reports of the floods. The Alle
gheny was a raging torrent and great loss
of property waa occasioned in the two
cities by the high water. Two lives were
lost in Pittsburg, and there was a general
stagnation in business. Lumber dealers,
boat owners, and others suffered. The
large stores adjacent to flood territory
were busy removing goods from basement
to upper stories.
The P. <fc W. R. R. tracks were com
pletely flooded and trains were run in over
the Pennsylvania tracks. The Conemaugh,
mindful of'B9, was again raging and miles
of the main line of the Peansy'vania rail
road were under water and destroyed. The
train which left Pittsburg at 8 P. M.
loaded with delegates to the State Conven
tion was forced to return and transporta
tion secured by way of the B. & O.
Williamsport reported an average of 6 ft
of water through the city, with great suf
fering. Every foot of ground in the city
was under four feet of water, and but a
single telephone wire remained to send
word outside the place. Railways, tele
graphs, telephones, all were useless. One
and one half millions of dollars worth of
property were destroyed.
Johnstown suffered a loss of half a mil
lion, and two lives were lost. Tracks
were washed away and all business suffer

Snow Storm in Kentucky
The heaviest and most disastrous snow fall
iny ears in Eastern Kentucky fell last Sun
day At Stanton,in Powell Co., ten inches
fell, doing great damage to the extensive
fruit orchards in that section. The apple
and peach cro»)s are almost totally ruined
At Beattvville. in Lee county, eight
inches tell," breaking down hundreds ol
youug trees and stunting gardens, corn
and wheat. Seven inches fell at Carlisle,
in Nicbol county, the worst in forty years,
damaging tobacco badly. At Harodsburg,
in Mercer county, six inches had fallen up
to 9 o'clock that night, and at that hour
was still coming down at a lively rate.
Two inches fell at Nicholasville, Jessa
mine county; five inches at Frankfort, two
inches at Richardson, four inches at
Georgetown, doing heavy damage, particu
l«rly to wheat and tobacco, while gardens
were completely knocked out.
From all parts of Eastern Kentucky re
ports of less s s gnificance came in showiug
that the precipitation was general and
damaging, and it is feared that the loss
will be shown to be very heavy when re
ports come in from the mountain counties,
where extensive experiments had just been
begun with tobacco and garden crops.
There was but a trace ot snow in Louis
ville, through it was very cold. Through
out Eastern Kentucky the "oldest inhabi
tant" has retired from sight.

very cold wet time last Saturday attending

Judge Agnew on the Confiscation of
MB. EDITOR:—The following is the opin
ion of Ex-Chief Justice Hon. Daniel Agnew
as to the policy of confiscating graveyards.
All who have a knowledge of the Judge's
character and attainments will read his
views with interest. They are worthy of
a careful study at this time by our people.
In the case of Craig vs The First Presbyte
rian Church, where the congregation alli
ed leave to remove the dead from their
old burying ground, the Judge says:
"In my judgment it offends against
natural feeling and constitutional law. I
grant the right of the State, in the exer
cise of her police power to regulate grave
yards for the public good, and to remove
decaving remains for the preservation of
the health of the citizens. I grant her
right of removal, by way of eminent do
main, where a great public interest re
quires it, but on compensation of those
who have acquired & right of sepulture by
contract, yet even in this respect, the state
has showu her sense of propriety and right
in the General Railroad Law of 1849, Sec.
10, by excepting burial places from the
powers of a company to appropriate lands;
but I deny the right of removal for inuivid
al or private interest, whether it be for
building a lecture-room for a ohurch con
gregation or a sabbath school room. Its
purpose is to save money by taking ground
appropriated lor the dead. A religious
congregation is a private body, an J its in
terests are individual, not public. Thus
to coin money out ot the bones of the
dead, is to violate a purchaser's right of
sepulture, contrary to the instincts of the
race and the keenest sensibilities of the
Among all the tribes and nations, sav
age and civilized, the resting places ol the
dead are sacred. There, memory loves to
linger and plant the choicest flowers; there
the sorrowing heart reviews the past, re
kindles into life the viewless forms of the
dead, revives the scenes where once they
moved, and recalls the happy hours of love
and friendship. There parent and child,
husband and wife, relatives and friends,
with broken spirits and crushed hopes, re
visit often the spot where they deposited
their dead. Who does not feel the foun
tains of his heart broken up and the warm
gushings of emotion, when standing ovei
the green sod which covers the departed.
Wherever the single stone is placed, or
the marble monument is erected,spontane
ous thought inscribes upon it 'Sacred to
This sacredness is evidenced by one ot
the most toucning incidents of scripture,
when Abraham standing by the dead body
of Sarah addressed the sons of Heth, say
ing, 'I am a stranger and sojourner with
you, give me a possession of a burying
place with you, that I may bury my dead
oat of my sight.' They offered him a
choice out of their sepulchers, but Abra
ham, intent upon a possession of his own.
where the remains of her ho had loved
might repose in security, purchased the
field of Macpela of Ephron, the Hitite, lor
tour-hundred sheckles of silver. Even
more touching is the reference to Jacob,
who, dying in Egypt, surrounded by his
children, charged them and said unto
them, 'I am to be gathered unto my peo
ple; bury me with my fathers in the cave
that is in the field of Maepelah.' There
they buried Abraham aud Sarah, his wife,
there they buried Isaac and Rebecca, his
wife, and there I buried Leah.' Tradition
has preserved to this day, the identity
of the cave and the tombs of these ancient
worthies, undisturbed even by tte Moslem,
whose mosque covers and protects their
The man who violates the homes of the
dead, who erases the tablets by which af
fection records their lonely dwelling, is
lost to natural feeling and does an act
which e*citos mankind to rage. The law
seizes hold of him for condign punishment,
Act 31 March, 1860, Sec. 47. At common
law it was a misdemeanor and indictable
as an offense, 'highly indecent and contra
bonus mores,' King vs Linn, 2 Lerm_R 733;
Commonwealth vs Cooley. 10_ Pick 37. The
law enacts no new standard, but follows
only the natural impulses of the race.
Even now thi i common instinct is swell
ing in united chorus from the Atlantic to
the Pacific, in the voice of the press, over
the robbery of the grave of Stewart. Bat
a few short months ago it thundered over
the desecrated tomb of Harrison. And
are wc now to say that the descratiou of
scores of graves to save ffioney to a con
gregation is according to lawt
In my judgment it is equally against the
constitutional inviolability of contracts.
Can a private association, corporate or .»n
incorporate, sell a right of sepulture to
day, aud to-morrow or next year take the
ground (or a lecture or school roomf It is
immaterial whether a grant ot sepulture
confers an estate or a privilege; it is a pur
chased right founded in contract, wtiieh
' no law can violate, except for a public ne
cessity. They who advocate this violation
of nature and of the sanctity of contract-*,
by calling it a mere privilege, assert its
application to green graves as well as moss j
covered tablets Ttiis is the necessary and
logical result of their argument, lor power
stops not even when the mourners lira
bending over the lreshly filled grave. Thu j
power to do it to-day, is the same power J
which must do it to morrow or years hence.
Let it be a privilege, aud this is the erijire
scope of the argument founded on Kir.
cade's Case, 16 P. F. Smith 412, yet it is a
right also paid for bj r the legal iepres«u
tatives of the dedeased. What law can take
it away for a private purposef
It has no analogy to append and cannot
fall with the building. Its occupancy is
permanent, not like that of a pew, periodi
cal and temporary. If the building tall,
is burned, destroyed or rebuilt the pew
right fails with it. But the purchased
grave has no such necessary and intrinsic
weekness of title There the body is laid
away, according to the rights of christian
burial, aud in the acts of christian faith, to
await the resuroction morn when its dust,
reanimated by the Creator's call, shall rise
to meet the Lord. Then why should a
christian congregation violate instinct aud
law, on the ground of privilege 1 Poverty
is the plea, but such a plea would better
defend a larceny of bread to feed famished
children. But can poverty sanctify tnis
disturbance of the bones of the dead t The
principles stated in Kincade's Case go the
length of my conclusions. The opinion
there states that owing to its neglected
condition, the grave yard was rapidly be
coming a "nuisance" to the neighborhool
It is also admitted that if a congregation
from mere motives of convenience or orna
ment, resolve to pull down the old and
erect a new chnrch edifice, in such case
the pew holder is entitled to compensation.
In Kincade's Case, the law provided that
the proceeds of the sale should first pay
the expenses of removal including the cost
of new lots, and in the second should com
pensate lot-holders before any division of
It is said also io the opinion: "But when
it is an act of necessity required by the
ooudition of the building or other impera
tive exigency, he (the pew-holder) has no
claim whatever to compensation." For
this many cases are cited. But what ne
cessity or exigency exists in this easaf
None whatever. The purpose is to raise
money, to raise money to build a lecture
and S«nday school room, a mere improve
n;ent the congregation ought to pay for
itself. It has no analogy whatever to the
case ol a pew-holder, whose privilege
fails by the destruction of the building of
which"it is a part. This is a contract priv
ilege not depending on a building. If I
buy the privilege of running water, or
right of way, or a right to open any win
dows over my neighbors yard, what law
justifies its violation f It is a right secur
ed by contract, which the constitution pro
tects; hero a right made sacred by the in
stincts of nature which precede constitu
tions, and implant upon them the highest
obligations of mankind to each other."

Farmer William Williams, of Bristol
township. Bocks county, missed three
settings from one of his hens on three
successive mornings, He was a good deal
mystified and, determined to learn the
cause of the disappearances. He set
seven steel traps about the hen's nest and
awaited farther deTelopmehts. Thursday
morning he was struck with amazement
over the fruit of his plans. Each separate
steel trap held a good, fat opossum, and
one of these had four of her young by her
side, making eleven in all. Farmer Wil
liams thinks he captured the whole family.
There is a farmer residing near Blooming
Valley Crawford Co., who has about 1,000
bushels of wheat on hand, yearly one-half
of which is two years old. He could have
taken 90 cents for it in the fall of 1892 but
he was a firm believer in Sibley and his
ability to give him $1.25 wheat, and he
held on to it, refusing to take less. This
same farmer has several hundrsd pounds of
wool, the clip of two seasons, to which will
be'added another soon. Some of this wool
he could have sold in 1893 for 24 cents in
the dirt, and now about 16 cents is the best
he is ottered. He will have to build a
larger granary this season, as he has more
wheat growing, and he will have to in
crease the storage for another seasons clip

several places, and afterwards at Greens
burg and Bethlehem, this State, in all a
term of about 20 years.
He has been the pastor of the English
Lutheran Church here for the past two
years. Some months ago he showed evi
dence of failing health and the Council of
the church relieved him of active labor.
Everything that triends could do was done
Rev. Smith was a man of education and
culture and was regarded as a minister of
much ability and usefulness. He leaves
a widow and six children to mourn
their great bereavement. Only last week
a son in the ministry at Minneapolis died
and was buried there, a fact his father
was never permitted to know, owing to his
weakness. Thus the widow and family

McCANDLESS' HEAVE CUBE.
I have a Heave Cure that will cure any
ca-"i of heaves in horses in forty days, il
used according to directions, and if it does
not do what I claim for it, I will refund
the amount paid and no charges will be
made for the treatment. The following
testimonials are the strongest proof of the
medicines power to cure:
A. J. MCCANDLKSS,
Butler, Pa., 1893.
MR. A. J. MCCANDLKSS:
On the 2nd day of April, 1892, I com
menced to use your new cure for one of
my horses that had the heaves very bad,
and continued to use the medicine for
about forty days and the horse did not
show any signs of a return of them. It is
now about a year since I quit givin the
med\c'\no and the horse has never sowed
any signs of heaves, and I feel stisfied
that he is properly cured.
W. C. CRISWELL,
Butler, Pa., April 3, 1893
A- J. MCCANDLESS:
1 have used your Heave Cure and fonnd
it will do the work if used according to di
rections. Yours truly,
R. J. MCMILLIN.
