In Butler a Tax Collectir must be
elected to succeed John S. Jack, who
has filled this jiosition for the hist three
years strictiy and efficiently two Over
seers of th% Poor, one to succeed J. Har
vey Miller and one to fill out the unex
pi red term of George Ziegler, removed,

Thomas McNair and a Borongh Audi
A School Director, Councilman,
Judge of Election and Insjiectors must
be elected in each ward.
For Tax Collector, Isaac Andrews
and Benj. Jack, both of the Ist ward,
are candidates for the Republican nom
ination, and Joseph Rockenstein, Rob't
A. White and D. M Ward are seeking
the Democratic preference.
Mr. Miller will ask the Republican
party to re elect him overseer, but this
office is nearly a thing of the past in
Butler county, the County Commission
ers intending to take charge of the
conntyTpoor on April Ist corning.
Attorney John W, Coulter, who was
last year elected auditor for one year,
will no doubt be a candidate for the Re
publican nomination for a full three
year term.

While this will I*! the last year the
tioroughs and township will have the
office of ' iverseer of the Poor, yet for
this year it is a most important one in
Butler Isirough The accounts of the
Board will have to be settled when the
county tak'-s charge of the jsior and
outstanding taxes must be collected.
The Board is aliout fVMHi in debt from
outs tali ding warrants and a live mill
tax has been levied fur the present year,
which will raise alsmt slo,'mK)
Now is the time for the tax payer to
attend to the matter ami select the men
he wants and whom he is willing to ei>
trust with the handling of his money,
lick the men yon want, nominate and
elect them, and then stand by them in
the strict discharge of their duties. Its
wrong for the public to let offices go by
default and then raise a howl about
corruption, im ffieiency or any other
fault, thus casting suspicion on the of
lieial and preventing him from giving
his liest services to his fellow citi/.cns
Itcuben McEJvain is spoken of as a
Republican candidate for Burgess while
Thomas McNair will likely receive the
Democratic nomination.

County Chairman Wise has called a
meeting of the Republican County
Committee for Saturday afternoon, the
20th, at which meeting the principal
subject for discussion will be the date
of the the primary, which must be ear

Convention being fixed for April 25th:
though there is another matter .hat
ought to be attended to. and that is the
re districting of the county for Con

but part of one.

Armstrong county, in all fairness, is
not entitled to the State Senator this
year. It is Butler county's turn to
have it The Ring knows this, and the
object of pntting Hon. S. B. Cochrane
forward (he has.already certified his
candidacy i is that conferees that will
do the Ring's bidding may be selected
and a bargain and sale can be made
with the Bntler county choice. If the
latter will agree to the conditions laid
down by the Ring he can have the con
ferees from this county. If he does
not there will be a deadlock, and the
State Chairman will have the right to
decide who shall have the district nomi

Chicago's iiig Canal.
Chicago boasts of doing big things,
and one of the biggest of Chicago's
achievements is the new drainage canal
by which the foul-smelling Chicago
river is made to run np stream and
carry its sewage into the Illinois and
Mississippi rivers instead of into Lake
Michigan. Besides cutting a canal
with a capacity of MO,OOO cubic feet of
water per minute and of sufficient depth
and width to carry steamers drawing '32
feet of water for a distance of 28 mile
Chicago has paid for the job the neat
sum of *1)3.000,000 without securing a
dollar from either State or Federal Gov
The primary pnrpose of the undeitak
ing was to divert the sewage of the city
from Lake Michigan in order that a
pure water supply might be obtained.
The excavation from the Chicago river
to Iy*-k|»ort, a distance of 28 miles, is of
ship-canal capacity, however, and it is
the intention of th-» Chicago business
interests to ask (Congress to continue
the canal by slack water improvements
the entire length of th<- l>es I'laines and
Illinois rivers to where the latter falls
into the Mississippi, a distance of more
than !100 miles, thus creating a great
water way from Lake Michigan to the
(Julf of Mexico.
The first effect of the Chicago drain
age canal will be to get its promoters
into all sorts of trouble. The people of
St, Louis and the towns along the Jlli
nois river are calling it a ditch of death,
and are getting ready to apply to the
courts for protection in the form of le
straining injunction* Those interested
in the navigation of the lakes fear that
it will lower the level of the water in
the great lakes and prove a detriment
to navigation. Unless this fear proves
groundless there is likely to Ik- litigation 1
from that sonrce It is evident, there
fore, that the promoters of the Chicago
drainage and ship canal are only at the
beginning of their troubles now that
the water has begun to pour through
their new ditch into the tributaries of
the Mississippi. They will be required
to exercise a great amount of tact, skill,
patience -ind energy before they can
point to a finished ship canal to the

ever, by being willing to spend <

cannot claim that our own is the great

Still another triumph for purer pol
itics and common honesty was witness
ed In Philadelphia on Thursday last,
when the ballot thieves and political
sharpers who stuffed ballot boxes in
Philadelphia were Indicted and held
for trial by the grand Jury. Chief
among the crowd was ex-Representa
tive Samuel Salter, deputy coroner of
Philadelphia. It will be remembered
that a witness, who was one of the
gang of repeaters from Washington, D.
c , swore that Salter had placed over
200 fraudulent ballots in the ballot box
before the polls were opened on elec
tion morning. On the evidence of the
same witness four other men charged
with fraud In this same district, the
Thirteenth division of the Seventh
ward, were also held for trial.
District Attorney Rothermsl, who has
charge of th'-Hf- eauspil the ballot
boxes to tie brought Into court anfl
opened, when complete evidence of
fraud was shown. Not all of the evl
flenip gathered was suhmlttetl to ths
grand Jury, but It was sufficient to se
cure the indictment of the guilty men.
There are oth«'i- eases In Philadelphia
of a similar nature to come before the
grand Jury within a week or two. in
every one of these Instances It was
shown that thf> llstis of voters hnd
been enormously padded. Indeed, It
Is believed that not Ifss than 65,000
fraudulent mime* havf been added
every year to the voting 1! ts of Phila
delphia by the Quay machine.
The farmers and rural people of
Pennsylvania are vitally Interested in
this. It take.' thousands of dollars out
of their pofkets every year. Under th»
present, law the appropriation for pub
lic schools Is divided upon this basis;
first, of the number of pupils enrolled;
Recond, the numbei of ti-achers employ
ed; third, the number of taxables in
the district. Philadelphia gets full
credit, therefore, <-very year for 05,000
bogus citizens whir}i she does not pos
sess. and fui that basis draws thou
sands of dollars from the state treasury
that should go to the counties.
It would be Interesting to know Just,
how riiurli has been taken out of the
pork KM of the country people In this
way liy I fin Quay marnine in the past
five or ' Ix year And It must not be
forgot tin, In addition to this, that It
was a Quay governor who took $1,000,-
000 out of tie >u h'Kil fund, while pro
teasing to I'• the friend of the plain
people N»i should it he forgotten
that thin s>l,M;o,o'o WIIS taken on the
plea that tin- i trite could not afford It
ttfter a Quay legislature had refused to
tux corporations aiid breweries to the
umouut they deserved. Mow noon will
