On Thursday Quay was in Phil'a pre
paring for his trial; Senators Martin
and Grady were paired until March 2d.
and no election was expected until after
the trial: Quite a number of bills were
introduced in the House that day in
cluding the Kirk Road-bill, and a club
license bill and in the Senate the Brown
road-bill was introduced.
The vote in the joint session, that day
was Quay 9G, Jenks 78, Dalzell 15, Stew
art 6. etc 215 in all.
Sibley was in Washington that day
unfolding his plans for Quay's re-elec
Friday, the vote was 80, 65, 12, 7, 6,
etc, 185 in all, 98 necessary for a choice
and Quay 13 short.
The House resolved to investigate
charges of efforts to corrupt members
in the interest of the McCarrel bill
made by a Philadelphia paper.
On Saturday Jenks led for the first
time—the score being Jenks 14, Quay
18 Irvin 1. No quorum was expected un
til Tuesday. Speaker Farr had not yet
appointed his bribery investigating
Henry W. Oliver was talked of for U.
S Senator this time, and C. L. Magee
for next time, and it was conceeded
that there would be no election until
after Quay's trial.
Monday's vote was 10, 14, 1. Dr.
Weiss of Lebanon county was present,
but did not vote.
Speaker Farr named Kreps(chairman),
Voohees, Skinner, Tighe and Koontz as
his committee on the bribery case, there
by surprising the House, as by custom
Gen. Koontz should have been Chair
man. He was bit tcrly denounced for
his act.
Tuesday's vote was 85, 67, 11, 7, etc.,
194 in all and Quay 13 short—and then
one. The action of Speaker Farr in
packing the Bribery Committee with
Quay men was yet the subject of interest.
Sibley arrived during the day accom
panied by a lot of Democrato from the
northwestern part of the State, and oir
culated letters from Democratic Con
gressmen favoring the re-election of
Quay. He showed letters from several
Sonthern Democratic Senators and Con
gressmen. This o«e was from fiery Ben
Tillman, of South Carolina:
"I do not hesitate to say that if it is
impossible to elect a Democrat, and we
must have a Republican, I believe a
sound and prefectly defensible policy
would make the election of Mr. Quay
best for our party.
"He cannot be any worse than any
man who is likely to be eljo3en by the
Republicans; and by reasou »f his
course on the force bill, and in many
other important particulars, as well as
the inevitable effect on politics in Penn
sylvania, he in preferable to any other
Republican in my judgment. ''
Yesterdays vote was 105, 80. 1«, 8. 7,
etc—236 in all and Qua} - 14 short.
Quite a number of bills were introduc
ed in the House.
Quay was in Harrisburg stopping at
the (Governor's honse, and Sibley, was
ready to quit.
Guffy gave out a statement thinking
the southern Senators and Congressman
for their statements, but intimating
that they had heard but one side of the
question and that Penn a Demociat*
were able to take care of themselves.
THE Spanish Cabinet resigned, yes
The House, on Thursday voted a $445
maximum rate far armor plate per ton.
Both Senators Quay and Penrose were
absent from their seats in the Senate,
that day. and the item of SIIO,OOO in
the river and harbor bill, for the in
provement of Pittsburg harl>or was
stricken out. Senator Quay denied
that this item was stricken out of the
bill at his request, and in order that he
might have revenge upon the Pittsburg
Coal Exchange for endorsing Mr Dal
zell for United States Senator: but there
is good reason to believe that it would
have been approved by the Senate Com
mittee had the Pennsylvania Senators
insisted upon it.
On Friday the compromise army bill
was introduced.and Congressman John
son violently criticized President Mo
Kinley's Boston speech.
Quay's trial at Philadelphia was the
absorbing topic in official circles.
There is no doubt that when the
struggle at Harrisburg firist began.Sen
ator Quay had the sympathy of the
leaders in Washington. There has
been, however, a most decided change
in sentiment and some of the strongest
men in th 6 Republican party now de
clare that he should be retired to pri
vate life. This reversion of sentiment
is due to Mr. Quay's courting Democrat
ic influence and to the open support
given him by Congressman-elect Sib
Mr. Quay's action in the Senate when
he voted directly against his party on
the Bacon Philippine resolution a.id
against taking up the army bill was be
lieved to have been solely for the pur
pose of currying favor with the Demo
crats in the Senate in the hope that the
latter might have influence with their
party in Harrisburg.
Mr. Sit/lev's visit to Quay and his
avowed purpose of assisting in the lat
ter's re-election has further angered the
Republican leaders. It was regarded
there as proof that Sibley is trying to
discharge a political obligation and re
pay Quay for aid the latter is alleged to
have given in accomplishing the defeat
of Congressman C. W Stone.
On Monday the compromise army b:ll
passed the Senate by a vote of 55 to 13.
The bill increases the Regular Army to
100,000 men until July 1, 1901, when it
must come down to 27,000.
Yesterday, the Senate passed the
House bill to pay Spain $20,000,000.
At daylight, Thursday, thePhilipinos
took possession of Tondo, a small place
near Manila and held it till during the
afternoon when they were driven out.
All day Friday the natives continued
action, and kept up an incessant firing.
Admiral Dewey a«ked the Navy Depart
ment to send him the Oregon.
ON Tuesday the Oerman war vessels
at Manila received orders to go to Hong
The Postponement.
The continuance by the District At
torney of Philadelphia of the Quay case
until the April term has caused a gen
eral expression of snrprise all over the
State. Speculation concerning it ranges
all the way from intimations that the
District Attorney had discovered that
the jury panel was tampered with, to
the opposite theory that a compromise
has been arranged. The representatives
of the defendants profess great disap
pointment at the postponement.
Another theory- and it can be no
more in the absence of definite proof—
tinuanceof the case carries the trial
well past the date when the McCarrell
jury bill will come up in the House.
The remarkable aspect of the case so
far has been the efforts by which it has
been postponed over critical periods.
Few people looking back over the rec
ord can believe that the writ of certio
rari was taken out with any real expec
tation that the Supreme Court would
quash the indictment. But it would
put off the trial long enough to permit
the hope of passing the jury bill, and it
would certainly carry it past the end of
the term of District Attorney Graham,
whose ability and earnestness in the
prosecution were beyond dispute.
The attitude of the present District
Attorney in the case has been a sub
ject of conjecture. The absence of any
arrangement to have Mr. Graham con
duct the prosecution joined with this
postponement is not calculated to allay
the doubts. It is quite possible that
the District Attnrney may have had
valid reasons for his action, but he
must show decided vigor in the future
trial cf the case if he wishes to indicate
his sincerity in the prosecution. —Pitts-

Death of 15. .1. Haywood.
Ben. J. Haywood, ex-State Treasurer,
died at the Carver House in Sharon last
Thursday morning.
He was troubled with va]vnlar dis
ease of the heart, resulting from the en
largement of that organ. This had de
ranged its functions, so that the lungs
became involved by sympathetic action.
For months he had not had that rest
which restores the lost energies, and on
account of the constant strain upon the
nervous syetem his appetite failed him.
Overwork had much to do with his
late illness, and it was only upon the
advice of his physicians th it he relin
quished his duties as Cashier of the
Treasury last December. Since that
time he had been confined to his bed.
Last Summer he made a trip to the
Omaha Exposition, hoping to regain his
health, but the tremendous strain he
was under completely broke him down.
He was brought to Sharon about fonr
weeks ago. lint instead of improving he
grew worse, aud from that time until

Harrison 011 Quay.
Ex-Pre»ide!jt Harrison is quoted re
garding his experience with Quay, as
"When I came into the Presidential
office 1 found Mr. Quay Chairman of
the National Republican Committee and
Senator from Pennsylvania. Naturally
I felt that I should consult him in re
gard to appointments in his State. Bui
I found there was no satisfying Mr.
Quay. His demands were incessant
an<J hit' api>etite for spoils insatiable.
After I had oowplisd with his requests
in many instances I desired to ."blige a
Pennsylvania Republican who had don<,
much valuable service for the party. I
mentioned f he matter to Mr. Quay,
who straightway 4"' n!lu ded. "What
do you want to giye him for'.'"
He himself was determined evidently tr.
be absolute dictator.
"Finally he came to me with the re
quest that I should pronjote Ijis won
from the bottom of the list of Heeont]
Lieutenants in the regular nrtny to H
Captaincy. To this I demurred, saying
I had no authority under the law to do
such a thing. He insisted that the law
didn't matter. I then absoluted refused
to do what he and he at once be

Another Postponement.
Upon the application of District At
torney Rotherrael, the trial of the ynay
conspiracy cases, growing ont of the
failure of PeopleV Bank, were on Mon
day continued nntil April 10.
The District Attorney himself sug
gested the new data*, and Judge Beitler,
while doubtful of his authority to name
a day for the trial which wcmld come in
the term of service of a judge other
than himself in the Quarter Sessions
Court gave his consent and directed
the cases against Senator Quay and his
son. Richard R. Quay, to be carried
Whatever may have been the reasons
which prompted Mr. Rothermel to post
pone the trial, he declined to reveal
them to the public. He stated them to
Judge Beitler before the opening of the
Court Monday, and the idea of deferring
the trial was fully approved by the
Judge, but. in announcing his intention
not to call the cases at present, the Dis
trict Attorney merely stated that, for
reasons which he did not propose to
make known, he had decided to let
them go over until the April term.
Mr. Rothermel furnished the Conrt
with sufficient cause for continuing
them beyond the March term by calling
attention to the fact that during next
month the judges assigned to the Court
of Qrmrtet Sessions and Oyer and Ter
miner would be engaged with the bear
ings of applications for liquor licenses,
l)iit gave no reason for not goin# on
with the trial. Monday, when be had
previously notified the counsel for the
defense he would be ready to proceed.
Senator Quay and his son, Richard
R., were in court with their counsel,
RUFUS E. Sbapley, A. S. L. Shields and
David T. Watson, of Pittsburg. The
last named lawyer was engaged to
argue the legal points involved. The
defense was ready to go on with the
trial and so declared. After Mr. Roth
ermel had stated his purpose to put it
off. the lawyers for the Quays took care
to make known in open court that they
had no intimation of the Common
weal ht's desire for postponement until
they had summoned their witnesses,
made every preparation for trial and
come into court with every expectation
of proceeding without futher delay.
The action of the District Attorney
created somewhat of a sensation in
political and official circles and rumors
were soon flying thick and fast to the
effect that he had declined to try the
cases because the jury panel had been
tampered with.
Whatever may have been the source
of these rumors, they had no origin, nor
could they be confirmed, in the District
Attorney's office. Mr. Rothermel him
self refused absolutely to discuss them
or anything relating to the panel of
jurors, and his assistants preserved a
like reticence. Lawyers who expressed
opinions on the subject \yere not inclin
ed to take any stock in the idea that at
tempts at jury fixing had halted the
trial, since they said, if such had been
the case, the District Attorney would
undoubtedly have laid the matter be
fore the Court and asked for a judicial

The Sarversville Institute.
The Farmer's Loeal Institute held at
Sarversville on Feb. 24th and 35th, 1899,

ner which was very ablv handled; "Bost

February SHOE SALE.
This is a case of force—
W<? must have room.
This will be your month at our store.
If you need Shoes or Rubbers, you can
have things pretty much your own way.
We have too many goods in the bouse,
and just a short mouth to sell them—we
must reduce our stock; there is no other
way out of it. Our spring goods will be
here March Ist, and this sale is to empty
our shelves of winter footwear AT ANY
PRICE to make room for new goods.
We Want to be Understood
We are not in business for our health,
and it is not often we sell shoes without
profit. This is one of the times we do,
and we consider it good policy to close
out all our winter goods even if we do so
at a loss. We then get the much-needed
room and can buy ar, enti-o new stock in
the fall.
Our Prices This /Wonth
Will be Record s rec k^ rs -
We cannot go into detail regarding
prices, but we promise ycu to meet and
better any prices you can get in Butler.
