The Republican State Convention to
be held today at Harrisburg, will prob
ably be a tame affair.
Senator Penrose is slated for tempo
rary Chairman and is to make a strong
administration speech. He took the
draft of, the '-Platform'' from Philadel
phia to Harrisburg, Monday, and it was
put in final shape. Generally speaking,
it indorses the administration ot Presi
dent McKinley for its record on finances,
the tariff, and its conduct of the war
with Spain and with the Filipinos.
The Pennsylvania soldiers are commend
ed for their services in Cuba. Porto Rico
and the Philippines. The State admin
istration is indorsed, with a declaration
for economy in all departments of the
State government. The Dingley tariff
bill will be indorsed as the main factor
in the country's present prosperty, and
the money plank will, it is said, de
clare for gold as the only satis
factory basis for the Nation's finances in
the interest of labor and business. Col.
Quay will be indorsed as the Republican
party's choice for United States Senator,
but it is said that there will be no con
demnation of those Senators and Repre
sentatiyes who refused to support him in
the last legislature, the desire being, as
one who is engaged in framing the plat
form says, to "say nothing that will be
offensive to anyone." There will prob
ably be -a plank declaring for prompt
payment of the school appropriation.
The ticket selected by Quay i. e. J. Hay
Brown of Lancaster for Supreme Judge;
J, R. Adams of Philadelphia for Super
ior Judge and Lt. Col. Barnetc of Wash
ington Co. for State Treasurer, will prob
ably be nominated without opposition;
Frank Reeder is said to be slated for
State Chairman.
A dispatch from Ilnrrisburg dated
last Friday, said that Goyemor Stone
has fallen into line for the machine slate
and he is doing his best to have it ratifi
ed by the State convention. He has
finally endorsed ex-Senator Quay 's selec
tion of J. Hay Brown for Supreme Court
under protest. The Governor would
have preferred either Superior Court
Judge Porter, of Pittsburg, or Judge
Archibald to the Lancaster lawyer. His
first choice was Judge Porter, and when
he saw there was no chance for him he
threw his support to the Scranton aspir
ant. But neither Porter nor Archibald
has a ghost of a show and there was
nothing for the Executive to do but
turn in for Brown.
Thomas B. Reed sent the following
short notice to the Governor of Maine,
PORTLAND, Me., Aug. 21.
To the Governor of Maine, Augusta:
I hereby resign the position of mem
ber of Congress from tne First District
of Maine, to take effect on September 4.

Itiots in Paris.
The Dreyfus trial, whicn is exposing
the rottenness of the Army Bureau; and
what of the they call the "Gueriu affair''
over there, are making trouble in
France. On Saturday last the "Jour
nal of the People" edited by Sebastian
Faure, published a manifesto denounc
ing the military party, the anti-Semites,
the monarchists and the priests, and
urged its supporters to meet force with
"Should Dreyfus be convicted," said
the manifesto, "it will be the triumph
of bandits. Should he be acquitted, the
military section will be open to rebel
The paper called on all anarchists to
demonstrate against the priests and the
Jesuits. Copies of the manifesto were
scattered broadcast, and the result was
that the anarchists flocked into the
streets singing the. "Carmagnole" and
crying "A has Rochefort!" "A bas Dm
mont!"and "Abas Guerin!"
On Sunday great numbers of people
assembled in the public squares and
then marched from church to chnrch
destroying the furniture and breaking
the windows. The police attempted to
stop it; there was fighting all day, and
some four hundred people were hurt.
Taken all in all the situation in
France just now is critical and unique.
Momentous events hang upon the out
come of the Dreyfus trial. Should
the prisoner be acquitted there
is danger of a military revolt, for those
who control the army are the bitterest
foes of the persecuted Jew Should he
be convicted the public opinion and nat
ional conscience of France would be so
outraged and wounded by the verdict
that a revolution would be almost in
evitable. On the one hand is Scylla on
the other Charybdis, and to steer the
ship of state safely between the two is a
difficult task.
Washington Notes.
An order has been issued directing
that 10 additional regiments of infantry
volunteers be organized for service in
the Philippines. The regiments will be
numbered from 38 to 47, and will be or
ganized at the following places in the
order named: Jefferson barracks. Mo.;
Fort Crook, Neb.; Fort Riley, Kansas;
Camp Meade, Pa.; Fort Niagara. N. Y.:
Fort Ethan Allen, Vt.; Fort Leaven
worth, Kan.; Fort Snelling. Minn.;
South Framingham. Mass. The Colo
nels and Lieut. Col's have been named,
and this will increase the Regular Army
to 93,000. _
One Forcible Opinion.
ED. CITIZEN: —In an article in the
CITIZEN of last week, written by J. 11.
Negley, asking for opinions as to the
proper time to hold our centennial cele
bration, or when is the county one hnn
dred years old?
The writer then says, "On March 12,
1800, the Act was passed creating But
ler county, or rather taking it from
Allegheny county, but that it remained
attached to the mother county for judi
cial purposes until 1808."
A simple comparison or illustration
will solve the difficulty: A child born
on March 12, 1800. but remaining with
the mother for nursing and care until
1803, then weaned; when would the
child lie one hundred years old? From
the time of birth or when it was wean
ed? On March 12, 1800 the umbilical
cord was severed uniting Butler to
Allegheny county and hence on March
12, 1900, is its centennial birth day.
A Few Words from the County
Iu a few more ilaya the schools of otir
county will again be in session. Anil
now before the school term logins I
wish to sav a few words to the direc
tors, teachers and pupils of our school*
in Butler county.
First, then, to the several directors let
me say that yon have lieen chosen by
your fellow citizens to look after the
public school system of our county. A
trust has been placed into your hands
that demands a vigilant care Great
responsibilities are resting upon you.
You no doubt have already hired your
teachers, secured the necessary books
and supplies for the year. Yet your
work as a director has only begun.
That teacher into whose care and keep
ing has been placed the school you es
pecially represent, needs your hearty
co-operation from the day she is hired
until the term's work has been finished.
The regnlar monthly visit to your
school is not enough. A few words of
encouragement, a show of your appre
ciation and some heartfelt sympathy,
will do very much towards helping your
teacher to teach her school well. Di
rector, your work is difficult; your
grievances are many: your pay is poor;
yet I assure you in reality, that your
office is one of the most important, and
honorable in onr county. Do your
work faithfully and the reward shall be
And here I might say to the fathers
and mothers, as patrons of our schools,
you, too, can help your director in pro
viding a good school for your children,
for the teacher very much needs your
sympathy, good will and help. Ite 11
you that the cares, and the trials, rest
ing down upon the school teachers of the
land can be carried successfully only
when the fathers and the mothers join
heart and hand with the teachers in
their work. Parents teach your child
ren whilst at home to respect and love
their teachers and their school as
they do their own parents andtheirown
This kind friends is what school lite
should be. and can be if we all work to
gether. Do not expect too much from
your teacher and remember that they
are but human and may make mistakes;
"for to err is only human, but to for
give is half divine."
To the teachers of our county let me
say, the work in which you are about
to engage is a noble one. What one
term of school is worth to a communi
ty, no man can tell.
The seeds you shall sow in the hearts
of your pupils will bloom and ripen in
this world, but will be garnered in eter
nity. We boast of our free school sys
tem. and well do we do so, for we be
lieve it to be the great corner stone of
our nation and the strong hope for its
future greatness. Teachers remember
your word. Be honest with it; be in
earnest in it; and ever have before you
the desire to teach not only the lessons
found in the text book, but to teach al
so the grand, everlasting principles of
honesty, truth, temperance, love for
God and love for home
Boys and girls you who are to be the
pupils of our schools this winter let me
remind you that the schools are for you
and you are for the schools. The day
is here when you must have a good
practical education if you wish to
take part in the world of usefulness
around you. For without an education
you can fill no useful station with the
rising generation of the "Keystone
State." Be in school every day this
term if possible, and always remember
that every day of school yon miss is like
the broken link in a chain —that part
you missed may sometime be found
Again, I ask pupils teachers, parents
and directors, let us one and all join
heart and hand in our school work here
in Butler county, and if it is possible,
let us put forth better, nobler efforts in
the work this year than we have done
in the past.
As Superintendent of Butler county
schools I promise to put forth my best
efforts in the work, and 1 do most earn
estly plead for the heart}' co-operation
and support of the people in this coun
ty during my entire term's work.
Yours very truly,

pany for the payment of the £3,100
which his son secured some months ago
from the trust company on forged war
rants of Wilkinsburg borough. Mr.
Douthett has told those who were vic
timized that he will settle all losses sus
tained throngh the criminal action of
his son. He said last night he was anx
ious to get the matter settled up as
soon as possible, "so thai my son can re
turn and begin a new life.
Mr. Donthett stated that he had not
secured almost SI,OOO that had been de

no such sum had been dei>osited by his
son with the company. There is such a
sum in the hands of a well-known lmsi
ness man which will be used in liquidat
ing some of the defalcations.
The suit of the Butler County Nation

for several hundred dollars, has been
satisfactorily settled. The indorsement

that amount in the First National bank
of Wilkinsbnrg to the l>orongh under
certain conditions. These were that
the two bondsmen should have permis

warrants and receipts. This demand
was granted by a resolution of council,
and the money was deposited in the
bank. Some of the members of council
afterwards wanted to collect the money
without allowing Mr. Donthett and l)r.
McClymonds to see the receipts and
warrants. The warrants have never
been examined by the two liondsmen.
and until they are the borough will not
receive the amount of the bond.
When asked last night if there hud
been any agreement made to pay the
forged warrants held by the banks. Mr.
Donthett said: "There has been no ar

The big island east of Cuba is called
San Domingo, and it is divided into two
parts called Haiti and Dominica. The
President of Dominica was assassinated
a few days ago, and as that goveruient
and that of Haiti are-probably alike, the
following account of Haiti by John X.
Purviance, formerly of Eutler. and who
has lately visited relatives in Pittsbirj;
is interesting.
"I first went to Central America,
to rnn a coffee plantation, but the na
tives had the pernicious revolutionary
habit so badly that I was not sorry
when I was able to sellout at a fair prof
it and come back to the United States.
Not long afterward I was asked to goto
Mexico and take charge of several arte
sian wells which were being drilled ou
the estate of the Cueves Brothers, near
S,m Luis. Potosi. You can get some
idea of the extent of aMexican farm when
1 tell yen that the one 1 was drilling on ,
was as big as the whole of Butler Co.
My headquarters were in a cornfield
that was eight miles long. Maybe that<
wouldn't make some of our Pennsylva
nia farmers open their eyes.
"Last November 1 went to Port-au-
Prince, Haiti, to drill wells on a sugar
plantation near that town. To begin
with I will say it is not a white man's
country. The people and those in
charge of theGoverir.ent are all negroes.
They are very jealous of their country,
and every stranger is subjected to the
closest investigation on his arrival, :*nd
during his stay is under a syatem of es
pionage that is somewhat galling to a
free-born American. Although the
( i overmen t is supposed to be a Republic,
it is virtually a monarchy, as old Presi
dent Sam will never give up his office
as long as he can hold ifc by force. His
White Honse is surrounded by parks,
filled with artillery, and a cordou of
soldiers, which it is impossible to pass
without giving strict account of one's
self. He is suspicious of everybody,
and I have been told that he lives in
constant fear ol' assassination. When
ever he appears in public he is attired in
the most gorgeous uniforms, and tries
to impress the common people with an
idea of his great importance.
French is the language of all. and al
though as a general thing the natives
are intelligent, they are very treacher
ous and cruel. They seemed to me to
lie of a different type of negro from
that in this country, and they appear to
think that the white people of all other
goyeruients are trying to roh them of
their independence. Some of the bet ter
miens of manhood, and have received
good educations, but the officials .of
President Sam's staff are careful to see
that no man or set of men liecome too
• They do not desire to trade with
outside merchants to any extent, and
they are very chary regarding innova
tions. Merchants or traders who try to
send goods into the island find at the
start that a tariff which is practically
prohibitive will shut them out.
" I left thore only a few weeks ago,
just before the assassination of the
President of San Domingo, and even
then I noticed in Haiti a feeling of un
rest among the natives for which 1 was
at a less to account. Ido not know pos
itively that they knew of the revolution
ary feeling on the other end of the is
land. but judging from what I know
now the Haitians must have been aware
of the plot in San Domingo. Down
there it is simply a question of which
side has the strongest force, and might
makes right in that island. Although
white men are not disturbed, they are
not welcomed to any great extent, and,
taken altogether, it is a fair sample of a
black goverment.
"Unless President Sam is killed I
think he will be able to hold the reins
of government indefinitely, as be has
apparently taken every possible nrecau
tion to put down rebellions wirh a swift
and merciless hand. No clemency is
shown to enemies of the existing power
in Haiti, and 1 pity the men who go
after the President's toga and fail to
get it.
