Death warrants were signed Tuesday
by Gov. Hastings for two Alleghenv
county murderers. George Douglass is
to be hanged November 30 and Phillip
Hill is to be hanged December 8. They
are negroes, and one of them was con
victed for one of the murders along the

railroad. Another death warrant sign

on December 7of Herman P. Schultz,

will be executed on a Tuesday, while
Hill is to die on a Wednesday, indicat

j The nomination papers of Willian R.
Thompson, a Pittsburg banker. Inde
pendent candidate for State Treasurer,
were filed at the State Department
Tuesday. Some of the papers were re
jected because of the neglect of the
signers to give their occupation, but
not enough were thrown out to keep
Thompson's name off the liallot.
A preliminary injunction was grant
ed Architects Alden & Harlow at Har
risburg on Monday in the suit brought
by the Pittsburg designers against Gov
ernor Hastings and the Capitol Com
missioners to prevent those officials
from breaking a contract. The hear
ing for the answer and argument was
placed for Friday, this week, when it is
expected a permanent injunction will
be granted, as Governor Hastings him
self refused to join his fellow commis

An Abxirrri Amendment To
The Ballot Liw.
The people who drew and the Legisla
ture that passed the amendment to the
ballot law whereby a candidate is pre
vented from being placed on the ballot
in more than one column were evidently
blind. A more absurd proposition was
never before advanced. Under the law
the judges nominated by the Republi
can party in Philadelphia were lucky
in having their certificates of nomina
tion filed first in the State Department,
for if the Democrats, who have since
nominated the same candidates for
judges, had taken precedence in the mat
ter of filing the certificates of nomina
tion, the names could not have been al
lowed to again go on the ticket under
the Republican head. Take another
view of it. Suppose the Prohibition
party had nominated ffie samecandida
ten for judges nnd had hitd the good for
tune to file the certificate of nomination
firstin the State Department -under the
crank law ax it now exists the Repnbli
can and Democratic parti en would be
barred from placing the names of those
candidates under either the Republican
or Democratic heads because the Prohi
bitionists ha<l filed their certificate first.
If this law had obtained last year a mi
nority party might hive nominated
William McKinley for President and
barred any other party from placing his
name on the ticket in this State, provid
ed the nomination papers of tlie minor
ity pariy were filed first Hoe how ut
terly ridiculous such an amendment is.
We question very much whether it is
constitutional, but the court will settle

CALLING oat troops to suppress a

If all we have heard of the profligacy,
general cussednes* and pitiful incompe
tency of onr legislatures is true, we
must conclude that representative
government, as at present constituted,
is a failure. Certain it is that many
men are sent to legislative assemblies
to make liws who are totally and abso
lntely unfit. They not only take
no interest in the work, but seem to be
utterly lacking in judgment. The
great problem is. how are we to im
prove the caliber of onr representatives?
In many cases they are in no sense rep
resentatives. The members selected
are often below the average intelli
gence and morality of the community
they represent. The remedy may be in
higher salaries, which will induce the
most talented to seek the office, or in
no salary at all. which will prevent
those who have no talents or fitness
from seeking the office. Members of
the English Parliament receive no sal
aries and they seem to think it is better
so. One of the most responsible as
well as respectable officers we have is
that of school director. As a rule the
best men in the comunitv are willing
to accept that office, and. generally
speaking, they are men above the reach
corrupt influences, such as school book
agents sometimes resort to. The troub
le about a non-salaried legislative of
fice would be that only a wealthy man
could afford to accept it and stand the
expenses, and it might be that unscru
pulous poor men would accept it and
permit some corporation or trust or
other interest to pav his expenses. To
increase the salaries, too would have
its objectionable features. Corrupt
men would then spend more money to
secure their election, and legislation
would cost more without improving
the quality. It is a hard problem, and
resolves itself back to the old solution—
the elevation of the general standard
of intelligence and morality of the peo
FOR sometime past the women of the
anthracite-coal region have entered
actively into the task of forcing the
workers out of the mi nes. A mob of
two hundred of them visi ted a mine a
few days ago and compelled a large
number of the men to quit work and
join the strikers. A mob in petti coats
is undoubtedly the most embarrassing
one to meet, for it can only be com
batted in a passive way. A riotous mob
of men can be actively attacked and
dispersed, but a mob of women can
only be resisted. At any rate, this is
the way most men are inclined to look
at the matter, and it is this feeling that

V New I'lmsc at Mailritl
The latest intimation by Associated
Press concerning Minister Woodford's
communication to the Duke of Tetuan
is that unless Spain shall find means to
end the struggle in Cuba, or to deprive
lit of the revolting features, the United
will sever its diplomatic relations and
cease lo recognize Spain as a civilized
nation. \\ hether this report is more
accurate than the first rumors, or not,
it represents an entirely probable and
proper action njsm the pari of the Gov
eminent at Washington.
The effect of such a course will be
readily nndersto.l. Filibustering
would no longer Is- curlied by United
States authorities. Spain will have to
depend entirely upon her own resources
to prevent the landing of men and mu
nitions of war and that without the ad
vantage of having diplomatic agents in
this country to obtain information of
the organization of expeditions. The
result can hardly be a matter of doubt.
Spain would be driven from Cuba in
short order, with no recourse except to
hasten her defeat by a mad declaration
of war against this country- Dis

The recent find is in Bald mountain,
situated in the northeast portion of
Watcom connty. northeast of Mount
Baker. The mineral range runs north
west and southeast, and to-day is located
for 30 miles. There is no telling how
much further it extends.
•The vein is in five claims—Lone
Jack. Bennie, Sidney, Lulu and Whist
—varies from three to five feet in
thickness. It runs under a layer of
porphyry ledge in a serpentine manner,
and auriferous shale appears in the
ledge. It is free milling quartz of sugar
and rose color, carrying copper and
silver The vein can be traced half a
mile. The cropping is under solid

CREAM AND SKIM MILK
How the Siale of Tlifm May B« SnoMfM
fully >1 *n*£«-d.
Mr. J. Bollinger, who sells cream to
manufacturers, likewise ice cream, skim
milk and buttermilk to private custom
ers, and has made a good thing of it,
thus explains his method in The Rural
The ice cream manufacturer always
takes back what cream is not sold in
case a great quantity is left over. He
sells it to hotels and boarding house
proprietors at a somewhat reduced price.
They serve it to their boarders instead
of pie or other pastry. But the real ob
jections and drawbacks are that during
the ice cream season tlie weather is va
riable. A hot spejl, during which it
seems impossible to get enough cream
to supply the demand, i-i followed by a
cool wave, when the cows set-in to make
up for lost time, and one is puzzled to
know what to do witli all the cream, as
very little is used. While this was a
great worry I practically mastered the
obstacles in the following way: A rough
icebox cf suitable dimensions to hold
ten 20 gallon packing cans, with space
for ice around them, was erected. As
soon as 1 had more cream than was
used daily the ten cans were packed in
ice, in the sau e way i:i which ice cream
is packed. The surplus cream was now
evenly divided among the ten enns, and
all the err;..n sold was taken from these
cans. If t< n gallons were sold, one gal
lon was taken from each can, and the
fresh cream, as soon as skimnud, was
evenly divided again among the ten
cans. In this manner I kept cream
sweet for ten days and over, thus tid
ing me ovt r a cool spell; then, with a
Jot of cream on hand and a daily sup
ply added to it, a hot spell, that usually
followed, had no terrors for me. Bat
when freezing eld cream mixed with
new one must be careful and start the
freezer slowly and stop every few revo
lutions at first until the cream is at the
freezing point. If these precautions are
not observed, one is more likely to get
butter than ice-cream.
To handle cream iu the above men
tioned way, perfect cleanliness in milk
ing and handling milk, and, above all,
in washing cans and utensils, must be
observed. We had a good sized box in
which cans were washed first in cold
water. Then wecoald turn a steam pipe
from the boiler into the box and heat
the water in a few minutes. Washing
soda being added, with the help of a
good root brush utensils were washed
perfectly. After washing steam was
turned into the cans uutil they were
very hot, tbns securing the best results.
Sometimes, however, a cool spell lasts
unusually long, and we were obliged to
phurn some of the oldest cream, but we
Jiad a ready sale for all the butter we
fnade. To get rid of buttermilk and
skimmilk I started a wagon lettered as
follows: "Sweet skimmilk and fresh
buttermilk. Two quarts for 5 cents."
This wagon was run at first on the
streets where the employees of factories
and shops lived. Instead of using tea or
coffee with their dinners, ice cool, sweet
skimmilk proved a healthful substitute.
Often in hot weather bread and skim
milk were relished by these working
people and their children for supper.
Pudding and custards were had oftener
than when milk had to be bought at 6
cents per quart the regular milkman's
price. It was but a short time before I
bad a traele worked up that took all the
milk I had, and often I did not have
enough to go around. People on other
streets soon left word for the wagon to
pall there. Boarding houses and bake
sbops soon became steady customers,
and olie Laker gave me a standing order
for ten gallons a day. He used it to
mix up some bread dough, which he
sold for cream bread, and had a big run
on it. But this milk was not diluted
with water, and as cream was tak' n
from it by the cold, deep setting process
a little more cream was left in it than
the separator now leaves. Separator
milk has very little butter fat remain
ing iu it and consequently may not be
quite so desirable us that from the
Skimmilk, pure, fresh, sweet and al
together clean, is a healthful and pleas
ant drink. It should be honestly sold
as such by milkmen at whatever rate
will pay a moderate profit. The cheat
and the dishonesty consist in selling
skimmilk for something else. A trade
in honest skimmilk might bo worked
up in almost any town.
The tjme has come when everything
connected with the milk, cheese and
butter business must be brought to an
exact scientific system. Take cream
selling. There are different grades of
cream wanted. For ice cream making
and some other purposes tho pure,
heavy article is needed. City people
who want cream to drink like it ratlie*r
thin. Then to season fruits aud desserts
and to put in coffee it is wanted medi
um thick, • it so thick as for ice cream
or so thin . that used to drink. A lit
tle milk is mixed in to make the thin.
Persona engaged iu cream selling must
come together and establish a standard
for the exact amount of richness want
ed in different branches of tho trade.
The staiidard is to be fixed by the
amount of pure' butter fat in tho creuin,
but let that amount be fixed and let all
dealers aLic'n by it.
Commercially there are three grades of
cream, thick, medium and thin, graded
according to the amount of pure butter
fat in each. The price varies according
to tho quality of creani.
The peopleof Great Britain are great
butter eaters. They like theirs mildly
salted and not high colore If the
creamery men of the United elates do
not secure their share of this fine butter
market, they will be wickedly negli
gent, that's all.
Lack of cleanliness is the cause of
seven-eighths of all tfie bad butter,
milk aud cheese upon the market.
Selling crtai i at 60 cunt-i a gallon
pays well enough, considering that you
have the skiiuuiilk left.
Koyal make* the loud pure.
