AN Oklahoma editor, speakini? of the Constitution, says "it youchs't'e the right of every man to worship Goo according to the dictates of his own prejudices."

"-Franklin News. A\-n here is the platform of the Democratic convention at Reading boiled down to short paragraphs: We look with alarm upon the abund ant harvest. We depreciate the general advance in wages. We denounce the increase of the price of wheat. We notice with regret that men are returning to work. We view with sorrow the decrease of the price of silver. We take no stock in the report that there is gold in the Klondike. We regard with horror the stifling smoke from the factory chimmeys. We regret the return of Rood times. We denounce those who would ask men to work. We brand as an imposter the advance agent of prosperity. We again assert that the tariff is a tlx. \Ve refuse to believe that this nation is prospering. We arraign as liars, villains, cut throats and horse thieves all who do not worship William J. Bryan. Any attempt to drive the wolf from the door will be considered a blow at foreign institutions and the cardinal principles of our party. We rejoice that we have at last gain ed a victory over William F. Harrity. We decry the use of any money ot her than silver in the purchasing of delegates. Judge Acheson has rendered a de cision in the United States Circuit Court at Pittsburg, declaring the alien tax law unconstitutional, that :t is in conflict with the fourteenth amendment of the constitution; that the tax law discriminates against the alien laborers as a class, which the fourteenth amend ment prohibits. Commenting on this the Philadelphia Times remarks, in which the great majority of the. people of the State will agree: A tax of 3 cents per day is only a righteous act and its purpose is twofold. First, to exclude that class of labor from our uiidst as much as possi ble. and second, to make the alien la borers who remain with us to com pete with the legitimate laltor of the State, pay a very small proportion of the cost of • maintaining the countless privileges they enjoy under our free institutions. It is not an unjust discrimination against alien labor. On the contrary it does not impose upon that class one half its share of the additional expense it imposes upon the citizens who pay the taxes to mantain the conrts. the schools, the roads and the prisons which are necessary for public order and safety. If this tax cannot be imposed then the lawless aliens can run riot in every community as they do now in particular sections of the State, loading our people with enormous taxes and yet enjoying every privilege of oui citizen ship except that of voting, and for that privilege this alien class cares nothing unless their votes have a commercial value. Judge Acheson seems to assume that the law is unconstitutional be cause it discriminates against a par ticular class of residents in the State. He overlooks the fact that without stvh statue our laws largely and oppressive ly discriminate against the honest American citizens, and in favor of the alien and temporary residents. Viewed from the standpoint of justice and 1 public order and safety, we regard the alien tax law of Pennsylvania as in ac cord with that equity that free govern shottld maintain ft>r all classes and con ditions who reside within the common wealth. POLITICAL."' Alex McDowell of Sharon is quoted as follows. "I have no doubt of his re-election. He will have no opposition to speak of and will be the next Senator without any trouble. There is not a man in the State with the power and the influence that Senator Quay has and you cannot find a man capable of taking his place. He is for tariff and that is what the peo ple of this Commonwealth want. In the passage of the McKinley bill Sena tor Quay put his shoulders to the wheel and heli>ed the bill along, because he knew the people of the State needed the tariff in order to benefit them and put money in their jackets. "Of course, there is some opposition and complaints being made against him, but when the tune comes he will likely have votes to spare. Quay is for the peo ple and the people are for Quay. Ilis re-election will not be because the peo ple do not want him, but they know he will represent their rights." What wonderous changes time doth make! Cameron Co. Republicans have in dorsed C. W. Stone for (Governor, and Berks Co. W. A. Stone. Some of the Republican clubs of the state are holding a meeting et Wil liamsport this week, and several "booms" for Governor will be "tied loose." NEARLY all crops nrean entire failure iu Ireland and famine is staring the people in the face. Pitiful pleas are being made for reductions of rent.

Butler county will certainly have j them this winter, for the instructors drew of the knowledge they had gained by experience and presented it to the teachers in choice language and it only remains with them to utilize it. The lecture by Geo. W • Bain last Thursday evening was replete with wisdom, patriotism and beatiful elo quence. The subject was' The New Wo nian and the Old Man" and lecturer showed that the liest of l>oth were formed and must always exist on the firm old Bible principles.

Following is the report of the com mittee on resolutions, which was adopt ed unanimously: WHEREAS, The week has been full of enjoyment and profit to us, teachers of Butler county, in institute assembled, resolved, First, That we extend our thanks to the people of Butler for thoir cordial reet>j>ti<in and the expression on every hand of regard for our profession, to the County Commissioners, who have open ed to us the doors of the court house; to the door keepers and all others who have contributed to our comfort and convenience. Second, That we recognize in Dr. Shaeffer a ripe schoolar, and a through teacher and a wise counsellor, as well as a capable officer: that we commend his interest in libraries for the people, and urge that public opinion be aroused so that the town of Butler and many other communities may avail themselves of the benefits of the act of 1895. The library is not a monument or a museum, but a centre of happiness and the school for all the people. Third. That we regard Dr. Houck, Deputy State Superintendent, a remark able student of human nature, an able educator, true friend of the true teach er. because a friend of the boys and girls, Fourth, That we appreciate Dr. Maltby as an efficent teacher of teachers, and that we look upon him as a valued friend and counsellor. Fifth, That we recognize in Miss Patridge a scientific teacher, and that as she lias kindly told us of many, many mistakes made by the teachers "in Japan," we intend to prevent, if possi ble, any Japanese errors in our schools. Sixth. That we are grateful to Prof. Sprenkel for the "dear delights of song that have been ours during the week, and that with him we believe music should have a large place in our schools; that to Miss Flora Smith, the pianist, we tender thanks. Seventh, That we are encouraged by neighborly calls and helpful words such as those of Superintendent Stewart, • Lawrence county, and Superintend) Beer. Clarion county, and that we hoj <■ they may come again. Eight" That the evening entertain ments have been highly enjoyable: that Dr. Houck, Prof. Ditumore, Frank Beard and Col. Buin were entertaining and helpful. Ninth, That we appreciate the effort 1 of Superintendents Cheeseman and Gib son iu arranging and cerrying out the program just enjoyed. Tenth, That as Pennsylvanians we entertain an honest pride in the public * school system of our siate. embracing as it does the kindergarten, the briinary , school, the intermediate school the high school and the normal school, compos ing, as they do, a harmonious i system; let this system be sustained by the united voice of tne people, and ignorance, with its associate • vice, must give way, and knowledge [ and virtue obtain. Eleventh, That in view of increasing opportunities for self-improvement, we s urge that the standard of the teacher be raised, at least in proportion to the growing excellence in school legislation ' and the growing disposition among the i peopple tv appreciate educational work. Twelfth, that we as teachers go to our work with renewed zeal and de vout mind, keeping in remembrance the sacredDess of child life, the sublime 3 possibilities of youth. En os McDi> .\" a ld, ADELAIDE K. ROHINSON, HATTIE HART UN<;. Committee. Kitti Claire. Prof Terwilliger has moved his family » to town. A large number of our young people attended the supper at Annisville Wednesday evening, Sept. Ist.

He leave- a wife and seven children lie was taken to Rimersburg, Clarion Co and buried Sept. 3rd. X. Y.Z, Anarchistic The revolutionary harangue of Dele gate Debs of Chicago at the "L.tl>or Convention" in St Louis is being very generally condemned. It was reported as follows. "I beleive the gravity of the indus trial situation in this country is well understood. It is qniteevident the dele gate-; to this convention are cognizant of the fact that civil lil>erty is dead iu America. I have said and say again for the last time 1 have appealed to the courts for justice and shall appeal to them no more. We appeal to this con j vention and to the country for an upris ing of all the common people in every j walk of life to beat back the courts and I re-enthrone the rights of the American I people. Lalx>r day is near, I predict that we will see the extraordinary spec tacle of enslaved labor rattling its chains and dancing to the music. Labor is the cheapest commodity on God's earth, and yet there are those who would have it at a lower price. Only the other day the united voice of labor was raised against the appointment of Mr.Powder ly to a Federal position, and 1 notice that he was promptly put into the place. (Mingled cheers and hisses) From justice of the peace to justice of the Supreme court of the United States, all the judicial powers of the United States are directed against labor. All the or ganized sources of society are against labor, and if labor expects to emanci pate itself, labor itself must do it. "The time has not quitecome toincite the populace. I serve notice on the pluto cratic element of this country that we are on the eve of another meeting in Chicago, which will be attended by all branches of labor. That convention will take up these same questions and will institute agitation and keep it going untiil the public conscience and public heart are aroused. There will come such an uprising as the world has nevei seen." "The time will come to incite the populace. When this time comes yon can depend on me. I will not stand in the rear and ask you to go ahead. 1 will be in fiont and say to you. 'come on.' I shrink from that bloodshed, but it this is necessary to preserve liberty and our rights in that event I will shed the last drop of blood that courses through my veins. We no longer have a republic; there is not a vestige ot it left. The judiciary of this country has placed a padlock on my lips, forbidden me to walk on public highways and de stroyed all of my rights. I.submit be cause yon compelled me to. lam help less I appeal to you and to the conn try to come to the front, take this cause to heart and these questions will then 1« solved. I will be free and so will yon. The people are ripe for a great change. All they lack is direction and leadership. Let this conference supply it. Announce to the world that it will temporarily adjourn for three weeks to renew preparations. Ask every man to pledge himself to be there. Come it you have to walk. No man has a right to plead poverty." Mr Debs went over the conditions ex isting in Pennsylvania, and when he finished with that state took up West Virginia. West Virginia, he said, had more government to the square inch than any State in the Union, and that meant less liberty. The less government, the more liberty—the only perfect govern ment was no government at all. In con clusion Debs said: "My friends, assert yourselves; enforce your cause. Let every man who can be as good as his word stand erect. " "Never in my life have I been more hopeful than now. lam not gifted with great visionary powers, but I can see the beginning of the end. When the people are ready, and that day is not far off, there will be a spontaneous up rising, the Supreme court will be abol ished, Congress dispersed and the sacred rights of American citizens and Amer icans freedmen will be enthroned. 1 ho pe in the march of common intel ligence we will reach a point where we will de able to settle these questions without appealing to the sword or bul let. Nearly every delegate iu the convention rose to his feet and cheered the speeker. He went on: "The significance of this movement portends new and important 1 developments along the line of battle. I I look forward to the time when the I people will dethrone the power that has enslaved them. The movement is marching grandly forword and pluto cracy will soon understand that silver and despotism have no right to a place on American soil." As Debs finished, the delegates rose to their feet, jumped in the air, threw tht ir hats in the air and crowded forward to greet the Speaker. Chairman Pom erov pounded vigorously for order, but it was fully five minutes before the con vention recovered irom this spell which Deb's ora tory had cast about them. Cairvicv. Facts. The Reformed Church denomination here repaired their church by putting on a slate roof, new cornice, windows, etc., on the outside, and a new floor, new carpet with very tine grade of new pews and pulpit on the inside. They will have it heated from a furnace in the basement with gas. It has not only a very fine appearance, but is very com lortaoie. On Sunday, August 29, they rededicated the church Rev. O. U. il. Kersher of St. Petersburg, preaching morning and evening. The Sacrament of the Lords Supper was observed ; also a history of the congregation read by the pastor. Rev. C. F. Althouse. The con gregation was organized in the year 1847 The present house of worship was built soon after ami dedicated on the 15 day of May, 1857.

This is his second year here as our teacher and the attendence is so large this year we may have to employ a primary teacher. A DEATH from yellow fever in New Orleans last week startled the people of ■ the gulf states. Snake Stories. While C. L. and S. S. Stuchal of Lnd vvick Pa. were working in Keaggy's stone quarry west of town a few days ago, they tl- ivered a rattlesnake with a live rat in its mouth. In the struggle ' snake and rat were precipitated into tne quary when they were quickly dispatch ed by the men. The snake measured :;.j teet in length*nd had 14 catties ad a button. Willie aged 7, and Eddie aged 9, sons of Mathew Cox. a fanner, of Taylor Co. Ky. met terrible deaths from rattle snakes' bites. They were playing hide and seek with some other children, and Willie ran into the bushes. Presently Eddie heard cries from his brother, and hastening to his aid found that four big ■ rattlers were bitting Willie, time and again. Badly frightened, bai determined to rescue his brother. LMdie reached in for ' him, and was bitten repeatedly. They liotli died in a few minutes. The snakes were killed, and it was found [ that the younge.-t child had jumped ill > to a nest of four big rattlers in the hol low of the old slump. One day la.->; week Al. Guist, of Arm i strong twp I;i.liana Co.. killed a black snake that measured r tiven feet and three inches long. He cut it open and i found inside of it a full-grown grey [ squirrel, which his snakeship had but recently swallowed. NOTES. The town of Broad Ripple, lnd , was litterally blown to pieces by a series of gas explosions on Saturday. Seven people were killed and thirty injured.

Franklin. Pa.. now claims the biggest. sunflower, one that is 1:5 feet 7 in. high has s4 large fully developed flowers and 26 small ones. The Carnegie Steel Co. is bidding 10 j open- hearth furnaces, 32 gas producers and a large fitting shop for streetcar rails to their Homestead plant. These improvements cost $750,000, and will give work to llXmi additional men. The Pennsylvania railroad intends to build a new Union station at Pittsburg costing several hundred thonsamf dollars, also a new station at East Liberty. The schools of Hickory township Mer cer Co. are to lie furnished with good pure water from drilled wells, and six i artesian wells are to be put down at once. Another innovation will be, a teacher of vocal music, who will visit the different schools of the township, and give musical instruction. In Shawnee county, Kansas, the other day, a man presented himself in his shirtsleeves, before the Probate Judge to be married. The Judge removed his own coat and then performed the cer uiony. That s the acme of etiquette in the corn State. That's a wild storv that comes from Boston in regard to Miss Alice W biting. It says that while driving home from an excursion in the country the horse kicked, striking her full in the mouth, knocking out thirteen of her natural teeth without touching her lips. Miss Alice must have been carrying her upper lip at a right-shoulder shift. Four hundred coal miners, their wives anil children marched from Grove City to Filer, Sutliff & Co.'s mines at Chestnut Ridge, headed by the Knights Golden Eagle band, where they induced the Italians, who had been imported, to join them. William McKay was arrested by one of the deputies for intimidating the men at work, and when he was being led away the women set upon the deputy and clubbed him so badly that he had to release his prisoner anil flee for safety. Two otner miners were arrested for trespass ing on the company's property and fined 75 cents. The miners have succeeded in closing nearly every mine in the county. Only seven men are working at the Chester Ridge mine. Filer. Sut lift' & Co. have secured an injunction against the mineas and trouble is anticipated. Thus far the miners have shown no violence. About a dozen deputies in the county are guarding the mines. There were at least 10,000 strangers in New Castle, Monday, at- the celebra in honor of Labor day by the Trades assembly, and the parade which took place that morning was the largest of any kind ever seen in New Castle. There were fully 0,000 men in line. Beaver Falls alone had nearly 1,000 men in line, and Elwood City and Wampum had 500. There were 20 bands of music, and prominent speakers were there from neighboring towns and cities: including President Garland of Pitts burg and Rankin of Cleveland. The speaking took place at Cascade park and fully 20,000 people assembled there. The addresses were made by Garland and Rankin, for the labor organizations; William Cox.Es<i, of Beaver Falls Hon. Thomas W. Phillips, Hon. John b. Brown, Judge Wallace and others. That night closed the day with the finest display of fireworks ever seen in the city. It is the intention of the manager.-; of the demonstration to next year join with Beaver Falls in celebra ting the day there.
