usual places —1 to 7P. M., Saturday,
January 25th.

hold their primaries, Saturday, Jan. IS,
from 1 to 7 p.m.
Fairview twp. —At Election House at
Kama City, 1 to 5 p.m.
To Elkin or not to Elkin—that's the
question with Quay Redivivus.
At the meeting of the Butier-West
mjreland Congressional Committees,
last Saturday, nothing was done, and
the Committees adjourned to meet at
gams placa —Duquesne Hotel, Pittsbnrar,
—ne*t Saturday.
The Westmoreland county men sub
mitted two propositions to the Butler
men —one that a delegate for each 2000
Republican voters be elected in each
county to the Congressional Convention:
and the other that the popular vote of
the whole district be taken for each can
didate—but neither of these propositions
was accepted by the Bntler men.
This last proposition is the one we
have always advocated in making Con
gressional nominations, for the candi
date then receives his nomination from
the whole party in the district, and is
under no obligations to the professional
politicians of either county
In this case Westmoreland is much
the greater county in populate, and
casts 15,000 Republican votes to our
0,050, but being the larger county the
chances are that she will always have
the most candidates, and it is ridiculous
to suppose that a first class man in either
county can not seenre votes in the other
county: and (should abuses spring up the
remedy remains where it belongs—in
the hands of the people.
The Republican County Committee of
Lawrence county declared against
Elkin's nomination, for Governor; and
the Indiana County Committee (Elkin's
home county; declared for him, Monday.
The Republican Convention in Pitts
burg, Tuesday night, nominated Jos. E
Lewis for City Controller. The fight
between Lewis and Larkin will be in
teresting, and perhaps control the nom
ination for Governor.
The action of the Republican Com
mittee of Lawrence county—a Quay
county—in refusing to endorse Elkin
for Governor, looks as though Matthew
the First was not in favor of John the
First, at this time.
Senator Quay is quoted by a Pittsburg
visitor as saying lately:
"The books between Governor Stone
and me are closed.
"I nominated and elected him and he
has returned the service, so we are
quits. lam not going to quarrel with
him, as I have no quarrel of my own,
but I am clearly of the opinion that as
much attention should 1*- paid to the
legislative situation as to the candidate
for governor this year. One depends
upon the other. If we nominate a
candidate for governor, who will bring
on us a desperate tight, it will not be
possible to elect a Republican legisla
ture or a stalwart United States sena
"The election of Larkin would make
it peremptory that the Republican or
ganization in the state should take
some other candidate than Mr. Elkin
"If I owe anything to a man in the
state organization, it is to John P. El
kin." "When I was embroiled in battles
throughout the state and the organiza
tion was fighting for its existence
against Mr. Flinn and his fellow in
surgents, Elkin led the fight. He is the
best organizer in our ranks But it
will not do sacrifice the legislature and
possibly the state ticket, too, to gratify
his ambitions.
"The election of Larkin in Pittsburg
would be construed through.the state as
a repudiation of the governor's arrange
ment svith the Pittsburg organization.
Even a close vote would predicate dis
aster to the state ticket. In that event,
I can see nothing to do but to stop
factional fighting and select some can
didate of broad party feeling, who could
command the whole strength of the
organization. The control of the next
legislature is as important as the elec
tion of a governor. If I owe an obli
gation to Mr. Elkin I do not owe a less
one to my colleague, Boies Penrose, and
I am as much interested in the legisla
ture as I am in the governorship."
LEGISLATURES are parsing resolu
tions favoring the election of United
States Senators by direct vote. It is
the same old thing over again. Every
body favors it, and then when the mat
ter reaches the Senate it is pigeonholed.
The explanation is easy. If Senators
were elected by direct vote many of the
present members would be enjoying
private life. •
The supplementary report of the Isth
mian canal commission deciding unani
mously that, under the changed condi
tions existing since the offer made by
the French company to sell its rights
and property for $10,000,000, the Pana
ma route is the most practicable and
feasible route for an isthmian canal,
was the topic most under discussion in
Congressional circles this week.

An exemplification of record of the
minutes of the Evergreen Street Kail
way Co of Pittsburg has been filed
which states that a meeting of the stock
holders, R. S., A. C., and Thomas M.
Latimer, David E. Wilbert and Jacob
Shrock, held Jan. 10. 1002, they decided
to extend their line over the following
ruutes in Butler county: from Allegheny
City via the Evergreen and I'errysviilo
plauk roads, through Wexford, through
Cranberry twp.. Harmony and Zelien
ople. Lancaster and Muddycreek twps.
Stamford and thence west to New
Castle, returning to Allegheny City over
the suae route. From Stamford a
second branch will run eastward on the
Butler —New Cattle pike to Bntler,
pass through town on Jefferson St. and
uut the Kittanning pike to Kittanning,
returning over the same route. From
Stamford the lines will probably run up
tin* Yellowcreek valley to Portersville
before striking west to New Castle and
will have to run northeast to Prospect
before striking the road for Butler.
It this road is built it will be just the
sort of a developer the western i<art of
iho county needs
Stamford is the location of tti"

Fatal Burnings,
Miss Lizzie McCandlesa, second ■'
daughter of Judge A. McCandless,
deed., was fatally burned at the old p
homestead in Butler township. last i
Saturday morning. o
Miss Lizzie was upstairs at the time,
making the I*HIS. when she brushed too .
near the coal fire in the grate and her '
apron took tire. Her mother, who was ,
lying sick in the room below, heard her
tramping heavily, and called to her j
sister. Mary, to go np stairs, that some- c
thing was the matter. Mary ran up t
and' fonnd Lizzie standing speechless f
and bewildered with her clothes all g
aflame. She threw her upon the bed
ar;d pulled bed clothing over her and
smothered the flames and another sister •
carried water and threw it on the hang
logs of the room which were afire in *
several places. Lizzie was terriblj ,
burned abont the IKXIV and limbs, and |
suffered greatly, until death released j i
her Monday night. She was about to '
years of age. and will be buried 111
South Cemetery, Butler, today. (
Miss Sadie Beers, aged 24. years, a
daughter of Alex Beers of Evans City,
was so badly burned last Saturday
afternoon, that she died that night.
She and her mother had completed t
the house work, and Miss Sadie went
up stairs to dress, while her mother
went out on the porch. Shortly after (
Miss Sadie came rushing down stairs
with her clothes all aflame and rnn out i
upon the porch. Her mother caught ]
her and threw a piece of carpet over her *
and a neighbor threw water upon her.
and she was carried into the house, but
nearly all her clothing had been burned (
from her bodv and she lingered in asrony ,
till about 3 o'clock that night, when ;
death relieved her. . ,
The peculiar part of the tragedy is
that there was no fire in the upper story
of the building, and nobody could tell i
from what source the fire originated. >
though it is supposed she stepped upon
a match. She had no idea herself, and
asked how it all happened.
She is very highly spoken of by those j
who knew her, was a sister of Mrs.
Walter Galbreath of Butler, and her
death was a terrible blow to her parents.

When we announced to the public we were going to try
and make the after part of this season equal the forepart we
had little idea we could bring this month up to December's
I business, which was the largest one month's business we have
had since starting, but our books show for the first two weeks
of this month a business almost as large as the first two weeks
of last month and more than twice as large as any previous
jear for the same time. We have always commenced taking
stock January 10, but this year we'll have to postpone stock
taking till people get through buying shoes.
