The city was already fall of strangers,
Monday, soma wearing Quay badges and
other* those of the Combine. During the
day ax Senator Cooper and Judge Miller
of Mercer visited GOT.
Ed compromise, but were told that he had
nothing to compromise. Judge Mi Her told
the Governor that he could not afford to
take part in the contest. To this the Gov
replied that if Judge Miller could afford
to leave the bench in Mercer county to
Uke part in it he was unable to we
why he should not. Chairman Gilkeson
refused to attend the meeting of part of
the State Committee, and Cooper presid
ed at it and the Committee made up a
roll tnat had but six names on it, that
were not on Chairman Gilkeson s roll
five of these being of Philadelphia men
The Onay men denied any intention
bolting the contention. There were ru
mors of gangs of ruffians being employed
in Philadelphia to go to Harnsburg.
Tuesday was a hot day both physically
and politically. Both sides put forth
their best efforts to hold their own dele
gate* and pull some from the other side,
and the doubtful delegates had a distres
sing time of it. ...
Rumors of a forceful occupation of the
Opera House, caused Chairman Gilkeson
to put guards in it, who were provisioned
for the night. The town was full of re
puted attempts to bribe delegates
After midnight committees of three
from caucuses held by either side, met
•nan endeavor to make an agreement up
on the preliminary points of difference
and avoid disorder and possible not in
the convention. This was in pursuance
of an arrangement made by C. L.
on the one side and Judge S. H. Miller,
of Mercer, on the other. Before either
caucus met, Mr. Magee suggested that
in order to insure against threatened
trouble, give no excuse for either side to
cay it had been beaten by unfair methods
and avoid the party scandal of either a,
riot or a bolt, all persons should be ex
cluded from the convention except dele
gates, contestants and representatives of
the press.
Accordingly after the caucuses adjourn
ed sub-committee of the State committee,
composed of Thomas V. Cooper, Judge
Miller and Lieut. Gov. Walter Lyon
came to meet a similar committee of the
Hastings people, composed of Senator
William Funn, George S. Graham, of
Philadelphia and ex-Congressman Yard
ley, of Bucks. They brought as their
basis of settlement and agreement to the
suggestion to exclude all but delegates,
contestants and newspaper men, with the
further condition that they would recog
nize the right of the Gilkeson delegate to
a seat from the Fifth Philadelphia dis
trict, and that the four contesting and
four regular delegates from the First
Philadelphia district, and the two dele
gates, one regular and one contested
from Wyoming, should be admitted to
the preliminary roll with half a vote
The doors of the convention hall were
opened at 9 o'clock, and by 10 the great
er part of the delegates were seated.
None but delegates, candidates and news
papermen were allowed to enter, though
a few others forced an jntrance. Chair
man Gilkeson called the convention to
order, and the compromise roll was call-,
ed by Assistant Secretary Rex. It was
not considered necessary to appoint a
committee on contested seats. Jack Rob
inson was elected Temporary Chairman.
By resolution offered by Senator Quay,
Gov. Hastings was made permanent
chairman of the convention. Quay and
Magee were Jnamed to escort the Gov
ernor to the chair. Magee was at work
with the Committee on Resolutions at
the time. The convention seemed de-
i frnr 'r l u* tain rtf called in
chorus by the delegates. In Magee's
absence Senator Win. Flinn assisted Quay
with the escort, and finally Magce hur
ried in response to the general call just
in time to help the Governor to the
stage. Goy. Hastings said:
I thank yon for tbirt great honor. I
will not make a speech, because it is too
warm. Recent events in the Republican
party in tbi« State prove that electric
storms clear the atmosphere. We will
reserve our oycloces for the debt creating,
prosperity-destroying, free trade Demo
cratic party.
The permanent organization was com
pleted by making Frank WiUing Leach,
secretary, and Supt. Roger D'Mara was
made Sergeant-at-Arms.
All the resolutions presented were re
ferred to th* Committee on Resolutions
without debate. Among the number was
a resolution offered by Quay, embodying
the reform ideas set forth in recent state
ments. This was added to the platform.
While the resolution committee was at
work in the rear of the building it was
decided to nominate the several State
Col. Henry Hall nominated Benjamin
J. Haywood, of Mercer county, as the
candidate for State Treasurer. The nom
ination was made by acclamation.
Senator Quay then placed in nomina
tion the six Superior court Judges named
for the new bench recently by Gov. Hast
ings, and they were also nominated by
acclamation. They are: Gen. James A.
Beaver, Charles E. Rice, E. N. Williard,
George B. Orlady, John J. Wickham and
Howard J. Reeder.
John B. Robinson who hail returned to
* seat in the body of the convention en
tertained the delegates while they waited
for the return of the committee on reso
lutions. Mr. Robinson said he did not
mean what he had said al>out Chairman
Gilkeson's management of the fund in
the last campaign. Since making the
charge against Gilkeson, Robinson said
he had been informed by reliable author
ity and by personal investigation that the
fund had been properly handled. Rob
inson probably made the explanation,
apology'and correction in view of the
fact that Senator Quay's platform abol
ishes campaign funds.
Congressman Stone presented a resolu
tion that the rules providing for the elec
tion of State chairman l>e suspended ami
that the convention shall elect as soon as
the report of the Committee on Resolu
tions lie disposed of. This was adopted,
and then Chairman Gilkeson said.
It i* perfectly evident to my mind'
after the vote whioh was taken, what the
result would be if a vote was taken upon
the auestion of State chairmanship. I
therefore, in the iaterest of party har
mony and for tha purpose of continuing
that spirit of peace that my friend, Sena
tor Cooper, alluded to. and with perfect
eoofidenca in surrendering the reins of
the management of the Republican party
to the hands of Col. Quay, withdrew as a
candidate for State chairman, and move
that Senator Matthew Stanley Quay be
•lected State chairman.
Senator Quay was then elected by ac
clamation. There were calls for a speech,
but he simply said: "I will endeavor in
the campaign now ensuing to make it a
campaign of merit."
The platform was then presented and
after iis adoption the convention adjourn
The Committee on Resolutions had no
trouble excepting over the money plank.
Kiter, of Philadelphia, offered as a sub
stitute a strong and direct declaration in
favor of sound money and against free
coinage, but it was voted down, the fig
ures standing 26 to 16. As the question
apjK Hre<l to IK: one that would not read
ily settle, a motion was made to adjourn
to the Senate chamber, where the com
mittee could discuss it in comfort. This
motion was lost by the same figures, Kit
er then offered the well-known sound
money plank adopted by the Union
League club, of Philadelphia. It was
also refused by a vote of 25 to 17. No
doubt existed any longer that the com
mittee had pre-determined to adopt the
platform wltl*out changing a dot on ati
i, or : oss on at. As nothing remained
except to report to the convention the
platform al.eady prearranged, the com
mittee repaired to the lower part of the
house where the convention was assem
bled and made its report.
Chairman Graham announced that a
report had been adopted by a large ma ;
ioritv against a protest of the minority. ]
which explanation, as he told Senator :
Penrose, who thought explanation un- j
necessary, he made to save the delay and .
annovan'ce of a minority report, I
Congressman Dalzell added that the |
gallery' was not a place wherein it was I
possible to properly consider a platform |
because of the noises below, and the
cramped condition. Riter, of Philadel
phia, was still of the opinion that the |
monev plank should be toned up, and he
offered again on the floor of the conven
tion the Union League money plank,
supporting it with a brief speech, in
which he expressed his opinion that the
Republican party should not hesitate to
espouse the cause of honest money.
Congressman Dalzell, of Allegheny, al
so championed the sound money plank.
He said he believed in money good at
par everywhere and that the sentiment 1..
support of the 16 to I doctrine in the
State, if counted up, would be found so
small as to amount to practically noth
ing His opinion was that the Reputih
cans of Pennsylvania should declare
against free silver on any terms," We
cannot afford to permit our loyalty to any
man," he said "to compromise us with
our consciences." ... , ,
Mr. Dalzell asserted that in this plan*,
which declares for a parity of the two
metals, thousands of Republicans west ot
the Mississippi river find what thej
lieve to be argument that the National
platform is a silver platform. He said
the Republican party should ta,ce a stand
against coinage at any ratio except sue 1
as should be fixed by an international
agreement. The honor of Pennsylvania,
he argued, was at stake, and the State
could not afford to have the announce
ment go out to the world that this great
Commonwealth had lost its head in the
free silver craze. .... i
Senator Quav arose in his place and
said he saw no' objection to the incor
poration of Riter's amendment in the
platform, if attached to the money plank,
and in less than no time the amendment
was a part of the platform, which was
originally built so a= to evade this impor
tant question, the same statesmen wno
had persistently voted against it when
presented in committee now voting unan
imously for it after thev got the tip. I hen
it occurred to a delegate from Luzerne
county that, while personal compliments
were not lacking in the platform. Gov.
Hastings and State Chairman Gilkeson
had been overlooked in the original draft,
and the convention suitably compliment
ed them.
The text of the money pldDk as amend
ed is as follows:
We accept unreservedly the determina
tion enunciated bv '.he Republican nation
al convention of 1392; that we demand the
ase ol both gold and silver for money,
with puch restrictions and under such pro
vision?, to be determined by legislation,
as will secure the maintenance of the
parity of the value of the two metals, so
that the purchasing and debt-paying pow
er of the dollar, whether of gold, silver or
paper, shall at all times be equal.
Faithful to the Republican party and
believing it to be the settled doctrine ol
the party that the honor of the nation
and the interests of its citizens requiie tfio
maintenance of a national currency, every
dollar of which, whether of gold, silver or
notes, shall be of a staple value and of
equal purchasing power, this convention
hereby declares its opposition to the debase
ment of the national currency by the ad_
mission of silver to free and unlimited
coinage at the arbitrary ratio of 16 to 1
The other planks favor protection, criti
cize the opposition, t . faT( ! r
better roads, indorse Stone s immi
gration bill, commend Hastings' admin
istration, etc.
The third annual re-union of this, very
numerous and widely known family, took
place on Thursday, August 22d, 189 a, in
the beautiful grove whioh belongs to Mr.
Matthew Sloan, one of the aged and moat
esteemed members of this family, and
which is situated on the public highway
leading fiom Six Point* in Allegheny twp.
to the very pleasantly located town of
Farmiogton in Venango twp. and about
equi-distant from tho»« two places. Oil
this occasion *e bad a pleasant interview
with the estimable wife of Matthew Sloan,
Mrs. Valla" Sloan, nee Welsh, who was
one of Butler's old time dunsels.
It is estimated ttat there were about
1000 people present, one-half of whom were
in some way, either by affinity or consan
guiniijj related to Lks.SivW twUi'- XJU
music at frequent intervals during the day;
aud a very pleasant and enjoyable time
was had by all present.
It having been announced that old Sol
had reached his meridian, all repaired, in
groups, to their own selected localities on
the green sward, and there, alter spread
ing thereon snow-white linen, the ladies -
God bless them—with deft and delicate
hands, loaded the same down to a safe an
chorage with the richest and most palata
ble viand* of the season.
Dinner dispatched, an organization was
effected, and speech-making, according to
the universal American custom, was in
dulged in. Appropriate addresses were
made by Rev. Torry of Parinington; Key.
Miller of Emlenton; Rev. J. R. Coulter of
Scrubgrass, et al
This family plant, like all others in this
occidental country, is an exotic. The pi
rent stem first found a congenial clime on
' the old Attloman farm, a mile irom Farm
' ington, and now owned by our honored
tellow citizen Amos Seaton, Esq. From
it sprang all this numerical strength ol
limb and of foliage. Andrew Sloan of near
Six PoiDts is the oldest surviving member
; of tha family. Having onoe, as Supervi
sor, been the means of conferring a luxury
upon the people of Allegheny township,
her tax payers are always glad to meet
and greet him. They would be proud to
confer on him any oflke of profit or trust
in the township, but he is too old to loug
er serve them.
We regret that we do not have space in
which to make rnori extended mention.
Mr. Matthew sloau was elected Pieoi
dent for the entuing year; aLid Mr. Elmer
Sloan, cashier of the Emlenton Naticnal
Bank, Secretary and Treasurer.

In Reference to Registration.
VTe wish to call attention to the fact
that September 5 is the very last day lor
registration and assessment in order to lie
qualified to vote at the November election.
The act of 1891, section 3, says: "After
the assessments have been completed on
the ruty .first day before tha * * Tues
day next following the first Monday ot
November ia each year the assewor .-ball
ma*e a return,'" etc., thereby plainly mak
ing September 5 the last day lor registra
tion and as-e»sment.
The duty ot the assessor of each district
is to b« at 'he polling place of his respec
tive district for the purpose of registering
ai d assessing voters on Wednesday and
Thursday. September 4 and S, from 10 A.
m. to 3 p. M. and from C to 9 P. M. of each
sn:d days.
If you are not certaia that you are reg:s
tered, examine the registry bo..* banging
uu the door of yoar polling place and it
your name ia not on the book notify your
"assessor of the fact on or before September
5 and see to it that you are a<-eased as well
as registered, since many votes are lost
every year because altaoigti registered
properly the voter failed to be asse.-.-rd. It
is possible to supply the omi.sioa to regis
ter, but nothing eat. cure the failure to be
assessed. Such omission is fatal.
The member of the County Committee
it. each district should see to it —it is a vi
ttl duty of his appointment —that not oac
vote is loi-t through neglect to register and
tenet's, in tbis w&y a committeeman ap
proves himself to his party ami no one
nh suld «ccept the burdensome position
who will not faithfully perform its duties.
The c inmitteeman can be a great aid to
t a Mse-sor in goitg over too registry
liet and seeiDg that not a single aauie is
ouimittea that should go on the list.
Tlu.g who wiil at the coining election
vote on age should have tbeir names
pliced on the registr} lift, thereby sav
ing time, delay and trouble on eirc'ion
dsy. Those who have voted heretofore
who wili be 22 years old on or befo.e elec
tion day should be registered nlid a •<*» :ed,
u hile those who expect to take out tbeir
fir.al naturalization papers tb..- yesr, in
order to vote must be registed and as-- ssed
While first naturalization papers can be
taken out at the Prothonotarj s office at
any time, second papers can only be ob
tained when court is in se j s on, and in
open court.
If any voters h&ye mi u : into a pre
cinct since las' election i» should 1 e seen
to that they are reg-tered and a-e-srd "<i
or before September 3 irliich is the last tiny
on which it can be done in order to entitle
to a vote.
If these directions are strictly followed
nianv votes which otherwise will be iost
wiil be -aved to the party *nd much time
and tronole will bu saied to the election
board and a quiet election with no jarring
»ill prove ho* it pays to attend lo the
preliminaiieo at the right time.

T am desirous of correcting a statement
which appeared in the Gouiersol items of
last week. The Gouiersol correspondent
says that "ground hogs havti't been so
plsnty for years. Hugh Stevenson and
Rev. J. J. Wolford went on a "hog" ex
pedition not long since, but we believe
they didn't h.iv» much success its they had
no salt along." Bogs are not so plentiful
in this piecinct as to excite attention,
th r ough the medium of a periodical.
Secondly—that Bugli Stevenson and Rer.
J. J. Wolford wont on a "hog" expedition
is untrue as the event never transpired,
other than in onr worthy friend's mind.
—Thirdly—lt seems that our friend, the
GOUHTSOI correspondent is accustomed to
professional society but there is no excuse
for a lavish bestowal of such high titles
when speaking of me as I am not u minis
ter and do not profes to any professional
ability—Am just an ordinary civilian and
my fancy does not induce me to relish a
title so high as reverend, not that the
title is not virgini>tl enough for me but
that more regard should be attributed to |
the title. . J. J. W.

The following biographical sketch ot
r the late Dr. William White is taken from
\ R. 0. Brown & Go's history of Butler Co:
"Kev. William White. D. D.., the hon
ored and respected rector of St. Peter's
Protestant Episoopa'. Church of Butler
for hall a century, was one of the pioneer
- ministers of his church in Pennsylvania.
, He was a native ol Stewart-town. Cou.ity
I Tyrone, Ireland, born March IS, 1811, and
1 wa-thus ia the 85th year of his age. He
- grew to nianh >od in his native land, came
to Pittsburg, Pennsylvania, in 18.12, and
I entered the Western University, gradu
i ating trom that institution in 1834. In
; 1837 he graduated at, the General Theo
logical Seminary of New York, was or
dained a deacon by Bishop Onderdonk, in
Christ chnrcb, Philadelphia, the same vear
r and was sent tit take charge of the tree
1 port and Butler congregations. In 1838
- he was ordained a priest by the same bish
-1 op, and retrained in charge of both
churches mentioned until 1842, when he
gave up the Preeport charge and confined
his labors to Butler and vieijiity Dr..
White was married October 1. 1840, to
Mary liredin, 1 daughter of Jnmes Bredin,
- of Carlisle, Pennsylvania, to whom have
t been born six children, as follows: Annie;
Isabella; Thomas, an Episcopal minister
9 of East Albanv, re-v York; George ii ,
. attorney at law of Butler; James 8., d«j
1 ceased, and William, a consulting engi
r near of Pittsburg. For several years Or.
White combined with bis parochial duties
t those ot a teacher in the old Butler Acad
-3 emy, and many ol the leatiii g men of
Western Pennsylvania looked up to him
with pride as their preceptor. He con
tinued as pastor of the Butler congrega
tion until 1877, when the infirmities ol ad
vancing age induced him to lay down the
burden, although he still occasionally per
formed the offices of his sacred calling in
the adjoining counties ot Armstrong and
: Clarion, With the passing years this
work also had to be abandoned, and at the
ripe age oi 84 he confidently and patiently
awaited the call to his eternal reward.
Por nearly sixty years his name has been
