REPUBLICAN COUNTY TICKET.
FOR DISTRICT ATTORNEY.

FOR COCICTY SCRYEYOR.
FRANK E. McQUISTION.
The Contest Op To Date.
The contest over the State Convention
has now proceeded for some weeks. The
discussion and action have gone far enough
to clarify the situation and tendencies.
They establish a number of unmistakable
conclusions. Here are some of them.
1. The struggle openly began by Sena,
tor Quay's shying his castor into the ring
and declaring tha'. he proposed to take Mr.
Gilkeson's place as Chairman of the State
Committee. Up to that moment there
was no issue or coaflict for the State Con
vention. Delegates had already been
elected in many counties without auy sign
•f contest. Mr. Quay'i announcement
was the declaration of war This indis
putable fact fixes the responsibility.
2. Not a pretense of a reason has been
given by Senator Quay's friends for seek
ing to depose Mr. Gilkeson. Their real
reasons they dare not avow; there are no
others they can invent; so they have re
mained silent. The actual reasons are
two-fold: first, they want to punish M
Gilkeson for standing by the Governor in
the effort for apportionment; and, second,
they want to get possession of the State
Committee for their own factional purpos
es. To these assertions they have not
evem attempted an answer.
3. Not a pretense of a valid reason has
been given by Senator Quay or his friends
why he should seek the Chairmanship of
of the State Committee. With 200,000
majority the State is not in doubt. His
abilities as an organiser are not needed in
that place. Why should he want itt Not.
he or any friends has ventured to answer
We ohallenge the production of an answer
from any of them. The explanation of
thia failure is that there is no answer
which they can openly give.
4 For the real answer it is necessary to
look below the surface. Mr. Quay doesn't
want the drudgery of the Chairmanship,
but he wants the Committee for next years
politics. His movement, therefore, means
Andrews for Chairman in fact and Camer
on for the national delegation and Senator.
This is the substantial issue. Every day
makes it plainer and the people are com
ing to understand it.
5 The Democratic papers with one ac
coard are on the side of Senator Quay and
against Governor Hastings. They know
what will best serve the interests of their
party. They are for Democracy and
against Republicanism. They know
that for eight years out of the last twelve
Pennaylvania has had a Democratic
Governor, and they are for the manage
ment which has produced that result.
The lesson is obvious. Wh at Democrats
are for Republicans are against.
6, There has been a striking difference
in the character of the campaien on the
two sides. The campaign against Gover
nor Hastings has been one of brazen false
hood and coarse blackguardism It has
not been truthiul or argumentative—it
has been simply low and vulgar. The
campaign on the other side has been a
plain statement of facts and a square ap
peal to reasjn. There is no intelligent,
reading Republican but has been struck
with the contrast.
7. The results up to date aro decisive.
The campaign has gone over-whelmingly
for Governor Hastings. Since the an
nouncement of Senator Quay's candidacy
for Chairman every delegate elected has
been against him. This sweeping cur
rent plainly marks the conclusion. The
Republicans of Pennsylvania, will stand
by their State Administration. —Philadel-
THI ltepublioans of Centre Co. held
their primary last Saturday and of the
delegates to the County Convention 108
were for Hastings and 12 for Quay.
Hastings and Capt. Bennison were elected
delegates to the Btate convention. The
resolutions extended "congratulations to
the Hon. B. F. Gilkeson, chairman of the
Republican State committee, on the
honorable, manly and able manner in
which he has directed the recent cam
paigns of the party, and on his brilliant
success in making each succeeding
mojority larger than its predecessor. "We
recognize his conspicuous fitness for the
position he holds, and oordially indorse
him for reelection."
Somewhere in New England.
Face to face with the fact, which he
appreciates in spite of the false pretense of
his claim agency newspapers, that of a
total of 15 delegates to the State con
vention who have been elected since be
declared open war on the State ad
ministration, every one, in each case
against the opposition of his friends, has
been elected to support State Chairman
Gilkeson, Senator Quay adopts the
desperate expedient ot repudiating Cam
eron just enough to gull Republican
voters who are against his heterodox
position on the money question, and not
enough to check Senator Camoron's es
sential interest and partnership in their
joint campaign. In answer to a cara
fnlly prepared letter from a Republican up
in Lycoming county, Mr. Smythe, Sena
tor Quay takes a safe straddle upon the
Presidential question by saying, "I am
in favor of Reed or McKinley" —good
Lord, good devil—although as late as
within the present month he was
specifically quoted from Harrisbnrg, with
out denial, as having declared in writing
that— lf Pennsylvania has a candidate for
President at the next Republican Nation
al Convection, it will be Senator
Cameron. Pit tab urg Times.
FOK three months a Blackford County,
Ind., farm has been burning underground,
and it has been impossible to extinguish
it. The farm is owned by Prank Williams
auditorof Wabash County. Mr. Williams'
farm contains sixty-six acres of muck,
which when dry, will burn like sawdust.
Three months ago fire started in the muck
land. Little attentiou was paid to it un
til within the last week, when it was dis
covered that the fire was burning under
ten acres and was still spreading. Within
the last few days the ten acre patch has
been a glowing furnace.

Ownixag a Governor.
"I would like to know how it feels to j
own a governor.''
Such was a remark credited to Senator
Quay just before Delamater's nomination,
and it his gone down in political history
as one of the junior senator's worst break s.
People who are well acquainted with
the prefect contest in Pennsylvania say
that Quay's famous expression explains
the whole course of the fight. A. well
known Philadelphia gentleman, who has
held some places of honor in tho State, iu
speaking on this subject said:
"When Senator Quay, something over
four years ago, said he would like to know
what it telt like to own a governor he
probably did not know that it was just
ihat feeling that would drive him from
politics. Now. Senator Quay has nevei
experienced the deliehtful sensation of
owning a governor for the reason that the
people at the polls defeated his man l)e!a
--mater, and Gen. Hastings is the governor
of the whole people and not the creature
of one man or any Get of men. Qaay dis
covered that he could not own Gen. Hast
ings However, he Knew that he would
be recognized like any other leading Re
publican, but this lid not satisfy the 'old
man.' He knew time was fleeting, that
he was getting old, and that if he wanted
to own a governor he would have to hurry
up. Then he sent an emissary to the gov
ernor with such a demaad that if it was
granted it meant that the governor would
reallv be owned by Quay. Of course tuo
governor refused the demand, and Quay
then started on his fight of extermination.
He decided to take the bull by the horns
and wipe out every man in politios, and if
successful he would nominate, elect and
own a governor all to himself. The Re
publican workers who had gone along
with Quay for so long, decided that it was
time to serve notice on the 'old man that
he could not use the Republican party to
vent his personal spite, and, as a result,
the active Republicans all over the State
have turned against Quay and he is de.eat
ed. He is worse defeated than even
his opponents think he is. This man Quay
was defeated the day the people in Lacka
wana county voted for State delegates.
Senator Quay chose his own battle
eronnd. He chose Lackawana and oppo
nents decided to fight him on the ground of
his own choosing. They fought, and t*ie
Quay flag was hauled down. From that
minute Quay was defeated. He may try
to 'Svengalize' these delegates, but it is no
use. All the junior senator needs is a few
more Lackawannas and he will withdraw
from the fight. Now, lam not one of the
men who believe Quay should be annihi
lated. I believe he should be taught a
lesson and given to plainly understand the

of a man charged with murder in the first
degree upon the ground that he had hyp
notized another man to shoot; his enemy
was naturally regarded as the high-water
mark of modern crarkery, but Ohio seems
to have set a record bejond it two years
ago. The body of a man who -had often
threatened to commit suicide was found
in the woods with a bullet hole in the fore
head. Later the man's mother had a
dream, in which she saw the ghost of hor
son in his coffin and learned from him that
he had been murdered by a neighbor.
Upon the strenech of this testimony tho
unfortunate neighbor was sent to prison
for life. The facts came out now in an
effort to secure a pardon for him. These

Chairman Gilkeson, of the Republican

to the letter of Mr. Smyth, of Williams
BRISTOL, PA., July 22, 1895.
James S. Smyth. Esq., Chairman Re
publican City commi'tee, Williamsport Pa:
MY DKARSIB: Your
not reach mo until this morning: ber.ee
the delay in my reply. In my judgment,
your third question really covers tho first
and second, and for this reason, with your
permission, I will answer the third ques
I am not in favor of the free coinage of
silver at a ratio of 16 to 1. I cannot
favor such a proposition, regarded, a* 1
believe it to be by the great mass of the
Republicans of Pennsylvania, as a poli
tical heresy. Inasmuch as the Hon. J.
D. Cameron is in favor of the free coinage
of silver, and believing that such a nation
al policy world be disastrous to the great
agricultural, manufacturing and commer
cial interests of Pennsylvania, I cannot
favor Mr. Cameron as a candidate for the
Presidency, nor as a Senator from Penn
sylvania to succeed himself. These are
my earnest personal convictions, and to
the utmost of any influence I may be able
to exert as a Republican, in ray own coun
ty and elsewhere, I will maintain them.
The party organization, however, be
longs to the whole party—not to any
person or faction in it, and should not, in
my judgment, he misused to carry ont the
personal opinions or preferences of any
Stale chairman, but should leave the
selection of Republican candidates to the
froe choice of Republican voters at their
primary elections. Trusting that mj
reply fully answers your questions, and
taking the liberty of stating that im
position upon the silver question is that I
am in favor of bimetallism, provided it
comes by international agreement, and
further stating that I will take the liberty
to-morrow of publishing my reply to your
letter, I am, very truly yours,
B. F. Gilkeson.
GOVERNOR Hastings has appointed Mrs,
J. A. Kaufl'man, of Columbia, and Mrs.

The Cuban War.
A New Yorker lately returned from
Cuba believes the Cubans will win their
fight for freedom. It will, he says, re
quire probably two years to settle the
matter, but his firm have advices from the
interior of Cuba stating that the workmen
on the tobacco plantations are abandon
ing labor and are joining the rebels in
their struggle. The Spanish, he pays,
are just now fighting against long odds.
The new recruits .being brought from
Spain are dying from fever on every hand,
and those that are escaping the rebate are
being carried off by sickness beforo they
get acclimated. Ho holievos that busi
ness will be practically suspended in Cub»
within the next few months, whrn the
natives will dtvote themselves to fight
The Spanish authorities keep wonder
fully well posted in Cuba on the move
ments of the rebels, and any person who
goes there. All mail matter is opened
by the authorities before delivery, and
anything relating to tho rebellion is con
fiscated and destroyed. The chief cause
of tho insurrection and uprising, Mr. Flah
erty says, is the outrageous and unreason
able way i n which Cubans and visitors to
Cuba are taxed. The hotel-keeper* are
required to affix a government stamp op
posite the name of each guest an he regis
ters. The stamp must be paid for by the
hotelkeeper, but is charged into tho hotel
bill by him HO that the visitor pays the
tax. The stamp is similar to that used
for playing cards by the Internal Revenue
Bureau of tho Uni'ed States, The stamps
are placed upon all mail matter after it ar
rives there, and must be paid for by the
receiver before the mail can bo lifted. The
same kind of government sta:;ips are plac
ed upon street *igns, placards, show bills
and al! petty artiel".-* Urire enough to hold

Christian Endsavor Societies.
The grand gathering of "Endeavorers'
in Boston last week draws attention to
the remarkable growth of this society.
The organization was founded by Rev.
Francis E. Clark, I;. D., while pastor of
the Williston Congregational Church in
Portland, Mo., on February 2, 1881. His
olject was merely to unite the young
people of his congregation in a society
for the purpose of having them, under
suitable instruction, eugage in promot
ing each other's Christian character and
usefulness. From this modest begining
has grown an organization with loci',
