Political Notes.
The Judgeship "figh:"in Lawrence coun
ty continues to grow in interest. Carson
«t Pry or, proprietors ot the Courant, a Re
publican paper, disagreed as to the pa
per's course and Pryor bought out Carson
and came out for Martin. The Sexes,
anotbor Republican paper, published a ta
ble lately showing that more votes were
counted for Wallace at the primaries in
New Castle, than the combined Republi
can aud Democratic vote of the town.
The political cauldron in Clarion county
is boiling merrily as the election, approaches
Tiie Clarion JackJtonian, one ot the organs
of the Dam emtio party in that county,
has created somewhat ot a sensation by
bolting its party candidates for Congress
and State Senate—Hon. Aaron Williams
and W. H. Hyde.
President Cleveland left New York last
Thursday and returned to Washington.
He refused to register in New York and
so cannot vote, and also refused to say
anything or do anything for Hill.
Warner Miller presided at a Republian
mass meeting in the city Thursday night,
and Chauncy M. Depew was the principal
speaker. Depew is billed for forty speeches
in the state, this week and next, and Mc-
Kinley made some speeches in that state
last week. Piatt expects Morton to carry
*he state by 100,000.
McKinley will speak at Erie, Friday
Hastings spoke to a large audience at
Chester, Thursday evening, afterwards to
a large audience in Industrial Hall in
Philadelphia, and accepted Singerley's
challenge to trade audiences at Norristown
Saturday of this week.
Reed spoke to an immense audience at
tho exposition building in St. Louis, Mon
day night.
McKinley addressed seventeen audi
ences in Illinois, Monday, speaking t» no less
than 150,000 people during the day.
It looks odd to see a squib like this in a
Clarion Co. paper.—
"What district in Clarion county will
give the largest Republican majority?"
Judge Wickham, of Beaver, decided
that Jackson Davis and not Solomon Hoch
was the Democratic nominee of Armstrong
Co. ior Jury Commissioner.
The political and social situation in New
Castle, Pa., haft reached what in medical
phrase would be termed an acute stage.
Mayor Alexander Richardson bad been
forced to resign his office, although his
term has one year and five months to rnn.
The incident leading to this step is briefly
this: An Italian who was before the May
or was assured that by the payment oftloO.
he could escape the penalty for a misde
meandor. The prisoner "paid the money,
but he was conv cted and served a term in
the Allegheny workhouse. On being re
leased he brought suit against the Mayor
for the $l5O. The Mayor has made virtual
confession by resigning. Now, Richard
ion was the right hand man of D. H. Wal
lace in manipulating the primaries and se
coring for hitn the Republican nomination
for President Judge. Indignation against
Wallace is running high. Two New Castle
dailies, the Courant and the AVi ex, both
Republican, have bolted Wallace and are
supporting his opponent, J. Norman Mar
tin, and Wallace has been denounced by
the U. P- Beaver Valley Presbytery.—
Franklin New*.
In a speech at Carnegie. Tuesday night,
John Dalzell said that Bill's course in
Congress showed that be was the biggest
man in the Democratic party, bat that this
tall would show him he was not big enough
to be again elected Governor of New
York. TSe only way to prevent a repeti
tion of the recent distress was to elect a
Republican Cong reft s "I'm not going to
say anything about the governorship elec
tion," be continuen; "everybody knows
Gen. Bastings will win by an unprecedent
ed majority, but I want to see the opening
of the Filty-fourtb Congress, over which
Thomas B. Keed will preside, a full dele
gation of 30 Congressmen from Pennsylva
nia. Tuuy will stand for protection for
the people. Come out and vote for your
candidate in this district."
Barrison and Morton addressed an im
mense aadience at New York, Wednesday
evening. In his speech Barrison referred
very strongly to the municipal corruption
and debauchery that have been made pub
lic there.
Alarming irregularities in the registry
lists of New Castle have been discovered.
Judge Hnzen has summoned the county
commissioners and registry assessors to ap
pear before bim Thursday afternoon and
show cause why 155 names should not be
stricken from the lists in the Second pre
cinct, First ward, and 46 in the Fourth
ward If the same ratio of irregularity is
found in other precincts the list will
amount to about 700 ov. r the real number
of voters.
Triumphant Japan
Japan has struck another sturdy blow at
the prestige, and therefore at tho stability
of the Chinese Empire. Ci>uat Yam
victory at Kiu-Lien-Cheog, form* a fitting
sequel to the triumph of hi* arms at Pings
Yang. On thin occasion, however, the re
sistance encountered was absurdly slight.
Tho Chinese appear to have become utter
ly demoralized on the approach of the
enemy, and they were routed and slaugh
tered with the greatest ease.
The way seems now completely opened
for a march upon Moukden. Judging from
the melancholy exhibition made by the
Chinese troops on the frontier, where a de
termined stand would natural!.} have been
expected, Count Yamagata is not likely to
meet with much hindrance on the way.
Th«u, with the fall of Moukden and the re
daction of Port Arthur and Wei-Hai-IVei
whose garrisons are already flying Irom
them, tho cup of China's humilation will
be auificiently full. Should internal dis
ruption not result from this succession of
national disasters and the present Empire
of China still oxist, Japan will.be able, if
not interfered with by the greater Powers,
to impose upon her rival what terms she

Walter Besant, the well known Euffllsh
novelist, has been looking Into Britain 9
trade policy and Is not pleased with it. In
a well directed attack upon free trade fal
lacies ho roused Inquiry and forced Blr A.
KayShuttleworth and Sir J. Hibbert to
aJmit that a great sum of public money
*ent abroad for supplies which could bo
produced at home. Mr. Besant brought
to light many things not generally known.
The Danes furnish more than half the pork
used in the British navy; lubricating oil is
supplied from America; boilers were re
cently brought from France and nsed in
equipping gunboats. Hent wood chairs,
which oould bo easily manufactured in
England, are imported from America; the
British fleet is supplied with Danish but
ter, and the admiralty use German boats;
foreign paper. Bavarian pencils and Swed
ish matches are supplied to the govern
ment stationery offices.
All this means loss to labor at home.
"Let us remember that (5,000,000 spent out
of the country," argues Mr. Besant-, "de
prives at least 1,500 British workingmen
of their daily bread, and that it sends to
the workhouse or abroad at least 7,500. Ia
that a matter to be disregarded?"
It is evident from the present condition
of labor that a great anil distressing chanp<
has been and is pending. To make a mis
take in deciding why this condition of in
dustrial unrest and idleness has set in
would make matters worse. To fairly un
derstand what the trouble is intelligent®* -
tion can be taken.
The Democratic party proclaimed the
old Calhoun doctrine of free trade. The
people elected them on that issue. As soon
as this was done business adjusted itself
for the change. It meant the destruction
of our industries or a heavy reduction in
wages. To look elsewhere for the disease
and to apply any other remedy than pro
tection will only prolong the disaster.
We are in the midst of what our past ex
perience teaches us would result from the
election of a party to power that would
abandon the protective policy. After 1816,
after 1833 and after 1846 tell the same story.
Everywhere an abundance of everything
to add to our prosperity except work for
our people. Without protection work for
the American laborer at American wages
has never been, and will never be, found.
The party that will not give us protection
cannot give us prosperity.
The storekeeper is congratulating him
self upon a slight improvement in his
business, and he needs it badly enough.
He is thankful, indeed, for the little re
vival that he is now experiencing, but
wonders why he is not doing the rushing
business that he did in 1832. Those were
the good old palmy days when everybody
had work and money to spend. His store
was always full then, and he could go
home at the end of each week feeling con
tent with himself and the world at large.
But how different has his business been
this year. He might have discharged all
his help, but kept more hands than he
needed, partly out of sympathy and partly
because he hoped every day that business
would improve. Many was the time that
he has looked out at his empty store and
wondered if ho would be able to pay the
month's rent and salaries when they be
came due. He Is doing a little better
now, but not much. That big boom in
business that was to follow the passage of
a Democratic free trade tariff bill has not
turned up yet. The storekeeper is still
waiting for it.
The way that the northern states sup
ported the Democratic nominee for presi
dent in 1892 really looked as if it delirium
had seized upon the people. In every in
stance, however, since that fateful year,
where the people have been called upon to
ratify or condemn their former action, the
result has been an overwhelming an
nouncement against the fearful mistake
into which they fell.
Every true friend of industry and the
hundreds of thousands of the unemployed
throughout the length and breadth of the
country will look to the industrious east
and the great northwest for a thunder of
protest against the party of free trade in
the coming election, and for such a con
trol in the next congress as will check far
ther tariff reductions until all branches
of the government can be recovered in
189 C, and the devastated industries of the
land be rehabilitated and restored by wise,
effective protection laws. The emphatic
protest from Louisiana, too, will be one of
the features of this year's congressional
Not later than the early part of this
month between fifty aud sixty ladies and
gentlemen living in St. Louis were invited
to visit the springs at St. Clair, Michigan,
where they were highly entertained and
had a trip on a steam yacht up the river.
During this trip the captain called the at
tention of the party to a smoke stack, 100
or more feet high, saying: "See that smoke
coming from the chimney? That factory
has been closed for.elghteen years, and last
week was the flint time since 1878 that it
has been in operation."
A couple of prominent St. Louis citizens,
who an' strong Democrats, immediately
jumped up and said: "What can McKinley
say to that? Here we have started a fac
tory running that has been idle for eight
een yenrs."
As soon as they had finished their little
jubilee the captain quietly remarked:
"Gentlemen, that factory is on the Cana
dian shore." It was then the turn of the
rest of members of the party to laugh.
FKEE TP. AOK , as advocated by the Dem
ocratic party, is for revenue only. Dis
carding the policy of protection to all
American industries, the tariff is laid on
non-competing products that the people
most need, and when on competing prod
ucts it is made so low its to encourage the
Importation of such competing products.
SOME people think that the tariff ques
tion is settled. That's where they make a
mistake. It is still the liveliest kind of a
live issue.
The Democrats have always insisted
that there was no necessity for protective
duties on farm products, as other nationa
could not possibly send such products here
in a competing way. They framed the
»ew tariff according to this theory, de
creasing and removing duties previously
imposed upon articles of that kind, and
now the farmers are beginning to have
object lessons presented to them upon the
subject of the practical working of the
non-protective policy.
For example, a consignment of eleven
cars of cattle was received at Chic ago a
few days ago from Mexico, a thing hereto
fore unknown in that market. These cat
tle, numbering 234 steers and fifty cows,
were shipped from a ranch at Sabinas,
Mexico, crossing the line at Ragle Pass,
anil the freight on them was >101.56 per
car, and the tariff duty—2o per cent, ad
valorem—amounted in all to al>out 3600.
They were sold at prices averaging
$10.8:) per head, and after payment
of all expenses the shipper had a good
profit left, and predicted that the success
of his experiment would result In large ex
ports of cattle from Mexico to this country,
as they can be raised there on native grass
at a comparatively small cost, and profit
ably transported by rail across a large por
tion of the United States and sold at rates
which put domestic competition out of the
question. Thus we have one of the effects
of the Democratic tariff law, and it is cer
tainly not an agreeable one for agricultural
voters to contemplate.
The point is often made that no protec
tion should be given to the sugar industry
by the payment of a bounty, because no
bounty is given to the farmer who grows
corn or wheat. It Is forgotten that corn,
wheat and cotton rank on the same foot
ing as the sugar cane and not with the
sugar product, which is quite as much a
manufactured product as cotton or woolen
goods which arc protected under the Re
publican policy, which, moreover, aims to
protect the wheat, corn or sugar cane of
the farmer just as much as it does the
manufactured product of the manufact
urer. It has protected the rice of the south
and the barley of the north, but the Gor
man tariff bill, while continuing protec
tion to the rice of the south has diminished
the protection to the b-irley of the north,so
much so that imports of Russian barley
are shortly expected at New York. The
next southern industry that will probably
need protection will be that of raw cotton,
in view of the large quanity of that com
modity that has been grown in other parts
of the world, more of which is each year
finding its way into our markets. When
the south finds its cotton growing industry
needs protection it will also find that the
Republican party will IK- glad and willing
to vote for its protection.
The following notices, taken from adver
tisements of importers of foreign goods,
are given a national application:
Owing to reductions in the tarifT we offer
greater bargains than ever.
Owing to reductions in the tariff Maine
and Connecticut roll up unprecedented
majorities for the party of protection.
Our prices are lowered with the tariff.
Democratic chances for carrying any
state where industry »«rmerly thrived are
also considerably lowered with the tariff.
Great reductions on account of new tariff
Yes, great reductions in work and in op
portunities of employment; great reduc
tions in wages and in ability to buy the
cheap things so industriously advertised.
Great resumption of industry. Our store is
crowded daily.
Our industries are not helped when the
importer's store is crowded. It is the whirr
and rattle of the loom and the spindle and
the hum of productive machinery that
helps our industries. Activity in the im
porter's shop means activity of industry
in Europe, not in America.
The American sheep farmer and wool
grower pays taxes for township purposes;
pays taxes for county purposes; pays taxes
for state purposes; contributes to the build
ing of churches; contributes to the sup
port of the ministry; seeks to raise and

people in the world. His lands are valued
at 125 to SIOO per acre.

no county taxes; he pays no state taxes;
he pays no road or bridge taxes; he sup
ports no church or other enlightening in
stitution. He simply raises wool, and
now under the new tariff law he comes
into the American market and competes
with the American farmer.
This is "tariff reform"—free wool to
drive the American fanner out of busi
ness; to nduce him and his family to
want; to rob him of the thousands of dol

The claim that the protective policy robs
labor for the benelit of capital is shown to
be false by results. Under protection
labor has steadily gained on capital in the
division of their united earnings. In 1860
labor received $44.50 and in 1890 $54.50 out
of each hundred dollars' worth of net
products, while capital hail $55.50 in 1860
and $45.50 in 18' JO. Lal>or advanced from
1389 to $485, or 70 per cent., while capital
went from s.'i6l to S4OB, an advance of only
40 per cent. This shows a differenoe in
favor of labor of 30 per cent.
An Englishman. James Edgecombe,
writes from London to the BirminghaA
Post to make some comment upon the
recent speech of Mr. William L. Wilson
to his British constituents at the cham
ber of commerce banquet in London.
Mr. Edgecombe wants to know how it has
happened that, if one tariff has been so
destructive to American interests, the
United States within forty years has built
up an iron and steel industry greater than
that of England. England used to le&4
the world in this business, but, observes
Edgecombe, "the tariff protection of the
United States has placed us second'* This
inquirer also wants to know how protec
tion has harmed the American iwople if it
be true, as Wilson says, that we have
created here a manufacturing plant which
will meet the home demand fully by run
ning for six i«'>nths in the year. It is not
indc<d reasonable to condemn a system
which has within three decades made tho
nation self containid and self dependent.
These thoughts, of course, occurred to
every intelligent Englishman who hark
ened to Wilson. His hearers must havo
wondend, first, how so foolish a man could
ever have been raised to so high a place;
second, how he could have supposed his
audience so stupid as not to j)erceive that
his entire performance at Washington was
in the interest of Europe, and, third, that
an American citizen could find satisfaction
in honors paid to him by tho industrial
enemies of his country because he had
sacrificed the interests of his own people
to them.—The Manufacturer.

Henry Calvin Black was born January 4,
1838, in Mercer county, and died at Harris
ville October 27th, 1894. ol appop'.exy.
He was a son ot Robert Black who was
twice a member of the Legislature from
Mercer county, and who died at. Harris
ourg in 1848. His mother Sarah Über died
in 1846. Being left an orphan at the age
of ten years he made his home with his
Uncle, Alexander Black, in Mercer connty,
receiving a common school education and
later attended Mercantile College at Pitts
burg. He embarked iu merchandising at
Harrisville, Butler county, in 1867 aud
continued in that business in connection
with two of his sons, until his death. He
was married in 1861 to Adaline Painter,
WHO with six children, survives him. He
was a member of the U. P. Church, a kind
husband, an indulgent father and a good
citizen and neighbor. His many sterling
qualities of mind and heart had endeared
him to a large circle of friends many of
whom followed him to his last resting
place, the funeral being one of tbe largest
ever held in the county. Five ministers
were present and participated in the servi
ces, Rev's. Kerr, Dickey, Imbrie, Blaney
and Mcßride.
George C. Fowler, late of Allegheny
township, Butler county, Pa , "has gone
to tbat bourne from whence none ever re
turn." He died at bis old home iu that
township at 4:30, p.m., on Monday, Oct.
22d, 1894, at the advanced age of 91 years,
6 months and 6 days, having been born in
Greensburg on the 16th day of April. 1803.
He was universally beloved aud respect
ed. All, of course, knew that he had met
the inevitable; yet, ali deeply deplore the
loss which the community iu which he had
so long lived, sustained by his death. All
feel that a valuable landmark has been re
moved, He was an important connecting
link between the past and tne present. The
traditions of long.gone by days which he
banded down to us with wouderful partic
ularity are invaluable. Many of them
have been crystalled into imperishable
history. We only regret that we will not
again be privileged to listen to bis pleasant
He was a son of John Fowler, who was
born in Bucks county, Pa , July 4tb, 1776
His natal day was, therefore, the same as
that of the great American Republic ol
which he became an honerahlc aud uselul
citizen. What au inspiration! Think, for
a moment, of having been born contempo
raneously with tbe tolling ot the renowned
bell which proclaimed liberty to a great
nation, and inspiie the down trodden aud
oppressed of the world everywhere with a
new hope snd higher aspirations! Could
one ever forget such glorious circumstances
of birth.
Mr. John Fowler, father of the subject
ot this sketch, as above stated, removed
from Bnrk* county at an early age, and
took up bis residenpe in Westmoreland
county, where he Jived lor several years,
and there matried, in 1802, Miss Margaret
Carson. His wife died the following year,
leaving one child, George 0. Fowler, whose
life we now commemorate. Abont four
and a half years thereafter, and, when tbe
subject of this sketch was only five years
old, John Fowler migrated to Butler coun
ty, where he followed, as he had in West
moreland, the occupations of millwright
and parpenter. While if) Westmorland
coqnty he built numerous mills, among
whjcb was one on Loyalhanna creek, not
far trom its confluence with the Cone
maugb river, where the two streams unit
ing form tbe Kiskiminetas, and not far
distant from Saltsburg, Indiana county.
Upon his arrival in Butler county.be im
mediately, aud with marvelous enterprise,
put itbyjjf developing the latent, natural
resources o} the county in which he ihen
expected to spend the' residue pf his life.
He accordingly purchased that tract of
laud on Hear creek, in Parker township,
which is now known as the "Stone House
fjroperty, 'ou which, with as much dis
patch poj»#;ble, he erected a carding mill
—an almost equipment in
pioneer life in those days— ai'tl. glvO, a
sawmill—au equally valuable appurten
ance. He also erected the stone house,
which, although now vacant, is still stand
ing on that property, and which, in later
gave it its name. Along in the
sevent/fes f.hr prouerty became a celebrat
ed oil field, aud, p on it, a Jew wells are
still producing the oleaginous fluid in pac
ing quantities.
'J he subject ol this sketch, as soon as he
became sufficiently advanced iu years,t >ok
charge flf fhjs carding and sawmill, and, as
a young man for bjs operated them
for nine years. About this ijuie, his
father erected what is Uow known as
"Harper's Mills" on the North Brunch of
Bear creek, in Parker township, Butler
county. Then having purchased a tract of
laud containing 400 acres udjacent to Six
Points, tbe family rao.'fcd hijfcer, and, after
making some necessary iuiprov - »'i/, 0) 4c
thereon, George C. Fowler f<>riu»d a matri
monial alliance with Miss Elizabeth Ilealty
on the 2d day of November, 1820. As the
result ol 'his umou John P.; Margaret C.;
Samuel n.; Frances T. ■ Sarah G.; Dorothy
T. aud Nancy A. Fowler were born, s'l of
whom are now deceased except Frances T.
Forquer, of Foxburg, Clarion county.
Shortly after his marriage, he purchased
fiU acye;) of laud which now constitutes a
part of the Cobbet*., formerly the Blyinil
ler farm, ou which be erected 3 dwelling
house and other buildings After living
here a few years he disposed of this prop,
erty, and then bought one-half of the 400
a;res tract from his father to which we
have above »efe;rred. He divided this por
tion into two jarins, aod twin cno and
retained the other, on which l&tte;- ho re

B. in Oklahoma, Elizabeth B. Grant in
Emlenton, Pa ; Simeon B. on the old
homestead near Six Points, Butler county,
Pa.; and Ureta E. Fowler in the lower oil
field of Butler county.
Mr. Fowler was a good citizen, a success
ful farmer, and an upright and honorable
man. He was po&essed of most admirable
qualities of both head and heart. He had
a must remarkable memory, apparentlv
never forgetting anything. He never
sought to take advantage of his fellow man.
Dc mortuia nil nisi honnm, need not be en
joined in his case, for no one can trnthfully
or justly epeak otherwise. He was a man
of sterling integrity; kind and affectionate
disposition; and of large and varied inteli
gence. He was tbe most inveterate and
indefatigable reader with whom we have
ever been acquainted outside the learned !
professions. Up to the time when he took
his bed, two weeks before his demise, be |
read each week regularly nice newspapers
—six dailies and three weeklies, besides
much other good pabulum for both mind
aud heart. His mind during the course of
bis lite devoured good books, among
which was the Great Book of Books, which
he read and re-read many times, and prized
above all others. A large volume contain
ing verbatim reports of sermons delivered
by the celebrated D. L. Moody, the evan
gelist, was twice read through by him a
abort time before God, in bis goodness and
mercy, called him to come up higher.
Politically he was au unswerving, un
compromising and staunch Republican.
Be was no political weather vane, shifting
around with every political breeze, and al
ways ill at ease. His political affiliations
were always with the great party of freedom
and equal rights toward all men, without
regard to color or provious conditiou of
servitude—that party which has ever and j
always been in lavor of America as against
all the rest of the world. On his tomb
stone should be inscribed as an epitaph, in
letters both bold and bright: "He voted
ticiee for Abraham Lincoln."
He was a consistent and devout member
of the Presbyterian church. He had given
bis heart to God and connected himself
with the church in his early manhood
From this consecration he never wavered
nor faltered. He always considered it
''more than his meat and drink to do his
Master's will." lie died peacefully and
happily, and with all the ooinfort aud con
solation incident to the closing of a ohris?
t inn's life. The dissolution of bis soul and
body was like the burning out of the last
vestige of a candle. Thai he has obtained
a glorious immortality beyond the grave,
and been permitted to sit down at the mar
riage supper of the Lamb, no one, who
knew him intimately and well can, for a
moment, doubt, liequicscat in pace.
His funeral took place on Wednesday,
tbe 24th instant, and was attended by a
large concourse of his friends and fellow
citizens, all desirous to do honor to his
memory. liev. J. K. Coulter, of Scrub
grass Presbyterian Church, his pastor, as
