More About Hail Stones.
BUTLER, PA. May 23. At Chicora
hailstones as big as walnuts coveredtbe
streets.—Albauy Journal.
We have waited patiently for many
years, but have heard of only two kinds
of hailstones. Why are all hailstones
that are not "as big as walnuts," "as
larife as hens' eggs?" This is au extra
ordinary meteorological fact, if fact it
lie. Are there no hailstone* as big as
hens, or Lima beans, or olives? A hail
stone the size of a small cocoanut would
l»e a relief from the monotony. But
hailstones will only come in two sizes,
and clouds are ulways "no bigger than
a man's hand."- N. Y. Sun.
You're another—these clouds were as
bit; ss all creation outside of Butler
county, and one of the hailstones that
fell in Milleretown was six feet in diam
Highway Robber}'*
Under the former Constitution of the
State, when corporations were chartered
by special act of Assembly, it was the
custom of speculators at every session to
secure a variety of charters for all
imaginable purposes, which they kept
on hand and peddled out to aßy com
pany that might be in need of special
privileges. Innumerable passenger
railway companies were chartered in
this way, with no other pnri>ose than to
pre empt as many streets as possible and
hold them againts the future formation
of a bona fide company that actually
proposed to lay tracks. The new com
' panv would then have to buy the fiau
chine of the speculators.
Oi - of the important purposes of the
Constitutional Convention was to put an
end to this kind of trading. The dis
tinct intent of the present Constitution
is not only that the incorporation of
! railway and other companies shall l>e
regulated by general law, but that
there shall be no such speculative pre
emption of public /ranchises as was
formerly permitted. All existing
charters under which business had not
already been commenced in good faith
were declared void.
The new railway bills now in course
of rapid transit through the Legislature
return to the worst features of the old
system and antagonize the whole spirit
and purpose of the Constitution. Tbey
provide, in effect, that »ny p-rsons may
form a company and secure a charter to
build railways on, over or under any
specified streets, with the consent of the
local authoiities; but they shall have
two years to obtain that consent, two
years more to begin operations, and fi\ e
years after that to complete the work,
and meanwhile—for nine years at least
—they will hold an exclusive monopoly.
This vicious provision is significant
of the speculative purpose of these bills.
Their introduction has been ingeniously
managed to have the appearance of pro
moting competition in railway service
while in fact they would exclude it.
The first comers would simply stake off
any unoccupied claim and hold it tor a
future trade, much as the special chart
ere used to be traded in under the old
Constitution. It is not necessary that
tbey should put up any security or
make any more than a pretense of be
ginning business. The streets would
belong to them, with the consent of the
Councils, and any one who wished to
buiid a railway must deal with them.
It is fruitless to nrge that this is in
violation of the purpose of the Constitu
tion. The recent spirit of interpreta
tion leaves Constitutional restrictions in
effective. It is highway robbery of a
flagrant kind, taking tho public high
ways and public privileges for private
use, without compensation and without
responsibility. ,The constitutional re
quirement of the consent of the local
authorities cannot be evaded, but that
affords little security, and the local au
thorities are not authorized or directed
to exact any payment, to impose any
conditions or to retain the power to re
voke a misused grant.
The speculative purpose of these bill s
is further indicated by the entirely ne#
right which is granted to companies in
corporated under either of them.
"To sell or lease their road and fran
chises or parts thereof to other passen
ger railway companies, or to acquire the
roads, property and franchises of other
passenger railway companies by lease or
This is a power which the present
street railway companies do not possess,
but which might be of great use to
them. They could not get it for them
selves; tbey may be willingto -'acquire
it from others.
Moreover, the Focbt bill expressly
conveys to corporations organized under
it the right of eminent domain, without
the restrictions that limit its exercise by
the steam railroads. They are empow
ered also to occupy any turnpike, so
that a company acquiring this franchise
could operate a continuous line, "partly
elevated and partly underground, with
surface rights.'' They are authorized
to issue bonds to the amount of the
capital stock "authorized"—not paid m
—-&j that there need be no cash outlay
in stock, a right never before granted in
such legislation.
There are particular provisions in one
or the other of these bills which indi
cates a particular parpose as in the
clause which evidently refers to Brojul
street; bat the essential viciousness of
the composite plot iB not in such details.
The schecne creates a new kind of cor
poration, with now and enlarged
powers It purposes to convey, for the
mere I'jtking, to a combination of men
as yet unnamed franchises of incalcu
lable value and powers that ought never
to be put in private hands, and author
ize them to trade upon these franchises
for their own profit, and in no way for
the profit of the public.
No more dangerous, more infamous
legislation than this has ever been pro
posed in Pennsylvania. It is conceived
in secrecy and is to be consummated in
deceit, under the whip and spur of a
corrupt combination, to rob the people
of rights that belong to them, and that
their representative!, cannot alienate
from their control without betrayal of
their trust.
Whatever fit legislation is required in
this State to facilitate legitimate enter
prise and promote the public conven
ience, ought to be fully provided. It
need not be dono in the dark. The
secrecy attending these bills and tho
indecent haste with which they are
urged wouid condemn them were their
faults far less glaring than they are.
They are not to be opposed because
they would promote railway-building.
Their immediate effect is more likely to
be obstructive Ja> the competition that is
desired, and their ultimate effect to
create monopoly. They are to be op
posed because they are fundamentally
vicious, snrrendoriiuf into the hamls of
si*cnlators, without payment, without
security, without restriction, the powers
of the Commonwealth that were in
tended to be exorcised for the public
profit and advantage. A corporation
enjoying any of tlw» franchises conveyed
under these bills ought to pay for them,
and some of these extraordinary fran
chises ought not be conveyed at all.
The whole scheme is a conspiracy of
greed that must -win public execration
for all who lend themselves to its sup

The mysterious elevated and sub
way railway bills were passed finally
in the Senate Friday morning by a vote
of $2 to fl. Senator Keyser. of Philadel
phia was the only Quayite to oppose
the bills aud be only voted against them.
He is alleged to be concerned for the
Union Traction company of Philadel
phia and his vote was cast against the
bills. He. to an extent, disposed of the
minor that the bills were intended to
benefit the Union Traction people in
Philadelphia, who, in the same rumor,
were alleged to have made peace with
the administration and its political ma
chine. The Senators voting against the
bills were J. Henry Cochran. Lycoming

Mr. Keyser. Qnayite. Senator Weller,
Bedford. HUti yuay Republican, and
Senator Miller, Cumberland, Democrat,
voted for the bills.
For quick action the Senate has broken
its record on these bills. Within 4$
hours after their introduction they
were passed fianally.
Monday night, the underground rail
road bills were started through the
The mysterious bills carry remarkable
privileges and here are some of then:
To appropriate and hold to the exclu -
sion of all others the right to construct
railway lines over or under any street or
road, public or private, in the state.
To appropriate and hold to the exclu
sion of all others, the right to construct
surface lines on all streets or roads not
now occupied by lines of existing com
panies, or on which the track.*, of the
latter are not used daily for transporta
tion of passengers.
To use to the exclusion of subsequent
applicants, the tracks of existing com
pauies over all bridges and for 2500 feet
at any point on any street or road where
a pretense of necessity for circuits or
connections may be set up.
To condemn and take any citizen s
land, residence,factory or store, with no
other restriction than that the aggriev
en party shall be paid a compensation
fixed by a jury appointed by the court.
To hold absolutely these privileges for
nine years, during which time not a car
need be operated, nor a passenger car
To acquire these nine-year titles to all
available trolly sites in the state with
out the conveyance of a dollar's worth
of 1 Kinds or securities tor the faithful
performance of any obligation to the
public, expressed or implied.
To sell, lease or dispose of in any man
ner all the above outlined rights and
privileges at any time during the nine
years, or a longer period, if the local au
thorities shall consent to extend the li
To do all this without paying a cent
beyond the usual incorporation fees into
the treasuries of either township,
I borough, city or state.
So certain are the promoters that the
bills will pass and receive the approval
of the Governor that it is openly boasted
| in Harrisburg that the articles of incor
poration for a new company under these
acts are prepared and in the capital
ready for presentation to Secretary of
the Commonwealth Griest as soon as
the name of Governor Stone is attached
to the bills. Those who have been care
fully inspecting the two measmes have
discovered that both omit the customary
requirement for advertising the inten
tion to apply for a charter.
This appears in the general corpora
tion :ut of 1*74 and its supplements, and
requ . -is that the object of the proposed
incorporation, the names of the incor
porators, and the amount of the capital
stock shall be advertised for thirty days
in the city or county where it is to bo
located. Until this provision of the law
is complied with under all other cor
poration acts the Secretary of the Com
monwealth and the Governor are pro
hibited from granting letters patent.
On Tuesday the railway bills parsed
the House, on second reading, amid
scenes of wild confusion.
When section 10 was reached Mr.
Coray, Rupublicau, of Luzerne, made
the hit of the day in the way of speech
making. He moved to amend by pro
viding that the franchises should go 1-0
the highest bidder. "I have here two
little pieces of paper which I think will
interest the House, particularly the stal
warts. They are relics of a great man.
and I prize them highly. The first ib a
letter headed, ' Headquarters Republican
National Executive committee. New
York city.' It is signed M. S. Quay.'
The other is an extract from the plat-:
form adopted by the Pennsylvania Re
publican State convention on August j
27, IH»S.
"The geutleman who writes the letter
commends the principles of the platform
to my consideration, as I was a member
of the House then. The platform stari
out: 'We decry the growiug lise of
money in politics,'and winds up with.
'We are against the granting of exclu
sive franchises covering public comfort
and conveyances. Corporations enjoy
ing public privileges should be made to
pay for them ' "
Mr. Coray declared that he is uow
standing on the platform which was
constructed when Mr. Quay was in
political trouble and when he was raid
ing the corporations of the State. "Mr.
Quay has shifted his position some
what." Mr. Coray declared. "I was in
favor of Mr. Quay's platform when he
originally issued it, but he has abandon
ed that position He is now the chief
promoter of these bills, and he now pro
poses to do just what he declared should
not be done, in this letter over his own

The Woman's Choice.
Will She Choose Dr. Experi
ment or Dr. Experience?
Put the question plainly to any woman:
Will you cnoose the experienced or the
experimenting doctor? and there's no
doubt about the answer. What woman
wants to be the subject of experiments,
to drag out weary months while the
unskilled practitioner vainly tries various
medicines, and charges the sick woman
liberally for his experimental failures?
Yet willing or unwilling a great many
women have to go through just such an
ordeal. Their disease baffles the local
physician. He tries all he knows to
effect a cure and fails. Sometimes this
goes on for mqoths, sometimes for years,
the woman meantime suffering daily
Perhaps the difference between the
•doctoring" of e*periment and experi
ence cannot be better shown than in the
following statement:
" for seven years I was confined to
bed most of the time," writes Mrs. M. P.
Davis, of Honaker, Russell Co.. Va. " I
had four doctors and they said I could
not be cured. I had ulceration of uterus
and female weakness, so I coula not
stand on my feet but a short time; had
bearing-down sensation, pain in the
•mall of my back. My stomach and
bowels, also legs and feet would swell,
and everything I ate hurt me. I could
not sleep wellj was so short of breath I
could not lie down at night; had sore
ness and tenderness over Uterus, toubled
with palpitat ion of heartj and suffered
with headache all 4 the tipie. I would
Set blind and have fainting spells, had
ark rings around my eyes ana my eyes
seemed Dloodshot; suffered from pain
ful periods ; could not lie on my left side.
I would have numb spells, pains around
my heart every morning, my lungs hurt
me a great deal and my shoulders too.
I would spit up blood at times, memory
was poor, hearing was bad, hands and
feet were cold all the time, and I had
chills and night-sweats. After the doc
tors said I could not be cured I got hold
of one of Dr. Pierce's Memorandum
Books and read how he had cured so
many patients afflicted like I was so I
thought his medicine might help me. I
wrote to Dr. Pierce for advice and he
sent me a very encouraging letter in
reply, advising me to take his ' Favorite
Prescription ' and ' Golden Medical Dis
covery ' and ' Pleasant Pellets.' I got
two bottles and used these and felt much
better. I seyit and got si* bottles more.
I can now work all day and not feel
tired at night. I can sleep all night and
can eat anything I want at any time. I
can walk and go anywhere I please. I
<eel better than I ever did. Can do all

Dr. Pierce's medicine when I first began
to have poor health. I could have saved
what I paid to humbugs. My friends
say that I do not look like the same
woman. When I commenced your
medicine 1 only weighed one hundred
pounds. Now I weigh one hundred and

your good medicine and your kind ad

between experiment and experience in
treating womanly diseases ? The differ
ence between success and failure. The
difference between health and sickness,
happiness and misery. The reason that
Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription cures
so many women is that it is a medicinv
which is the product of years of experi-
ence in the treatment
and cure of womanly
diseases. It is a medi
cine made to do certain
things and it does what
it is made to do. Every
woman understands the
fine points of this differ
ence between experiment
and experience. When
the housewife engages a
cook she demands experi
ence. She does not want
a cook who is experi
menting with unfamiliar
recipes. The inexperi
enced man might say—
Why, there's the cook
book. It tells how to
make anything. All
you've got to do is to
measure and mix as it
instructs and you can't
come out wrong. Can't
you? The wife knows
very much better than x
that. Given the best
recipe in the world it
takes experience to make
a success of it. The dif
ference between the suc
cess of Doctor Pierce's
Favorite Prescription and the failure of
other medicines is the difference of ex
perience. It is no experiment to use Dr.
Pierce's Favorite Prescription for the
cure of womanly ills. Experience—the
experience of hundreds of thousands of
women proclaims that it makes weak
women strong and sick women well.
Thousands of grateful letters have
been written to Dr. Pierce. They covw
cures of every form of womanly disease
which is medically curable. They show
that " Favorite Prescription " is a perfect
regulator, that it dries enfeebling drains;.
that it heals inflammation and ulceration
and cures female weakness. They prove
"Favorite Prescription" is the best pre
parative for maternity; that it keeps the
mother strong and healthy and makes
the baby's advent practically painless.
Sick and ailing women are invited to
consult Dr. Pierce, by letter, free. All
correspondence is privately read, pri
vately answered ana womanly confi
dences are guarded by the same strict
professional privacy which protects the
womanly confidences made in a personal
consultation with Dr. Pierce. Address
