t Tlic Superior Court Vacancy.
The vacancy on the bench of the Su
perior Court, caused by the resignation
of Judge W. W. Porter, will be filled by
appointment by Governor Pennypacker;
the appointee to be commissioned to
Jannary 1, 1904, and recommissoned, if
elected next November, tor the usual
term of ten years.
The Superior Conrc has become a very
imjH>rtant branch of the judicial depart
ment of the state. It was designed to
lift some of the work from the shoulders
the Supreme Court justices. Wheth
er the higher court has really been re
lieved may be a question, for the con
tinued growth of litigation keeps it
busy. However that may be, the Super
ior Court has a heavy burden of ito own
to carry, a burden that is made harder
because it moves from one city to an
other. When not sitting in Pittsburg,
it is to be found at Philadelphia, Wil
liamsport, Harrisburg or Scranton. Its
duties are arduous, and its members
should be capable attorneys of ripe ex
perience and undoubted integrity.
Such a man is H. H. Goncher, Esq. .
of Butler, for whom an effort in this di
rection is now being made, and as this
aection of the state is at present unrep
resented on either the Superior or Su
preme benches, we commend Mr.
Goncher's claims and those of our coun
ty to our worthy Governor.
Twenty years ago two men, looking
for some grazing and farming land near
the southern shore of Lake Superior
came across a large tree that had been
uprooted by a storm. The long tap-root
of the fallen tree was smeared with
red stuff, and the men surmising what
this meant, dug down and found a solid
bed of red iron ore. the best known for
making Bessemer steel. They bought
the ridge for a trifle, made their dis
covery known, and in th 3 course of
time sold their holdings for twenty
The region was investigated and these
deposits of ore were found to exist
along the entire southern coast of Lake
Superior from the straits of Mackinaw,
through Michigan, Wisconsin and
Minnesota to a point northwest of
Dnluth, and the ridges containing it
have all been bought up by the Car
negies and Rockefellers. The ore is
dredged from the hills, loaded in, cars,
run to the Lake shore, dumped into
boats built for the purpose, towed to
the ports of Lake Erie and loaded on
cars there.—all by machinery—and
though millions of tons of it have been
taken out, the deposits have barflj
been "scratched," and the supply seems
inexhaustible. Thousands of tons of
the stuff pass through Butler every
week over the Bessemer on its way to
the furnaces uoar Pittsburg; the coal
of this section giving us an advantage
over other sections, and the out-put of
pig iron in this state a\one tor last year
was about eight millions of tons, as
against about seventeen million tons by
the whole country.
These figures are instructive in many
ways. The output was the greatest in
our history and would have been pro
bably twenty per cent, larger if there
had been available the coke and means
of transportation. To offset this there
was large importations from abroad,
and the demand is still ntterly beyond
the capacity of the furnaces to supply.
At Connellsville and in that region
thousands of tons of coke are awaiting
shipment, and the railroad blockade
seems to be no nearer closing than for
some weeks. In consequence the maxi
mum demand for pig-iron output can
not be reached. The position of Penn
sylvania in the ore business is more im
portant than ever. That its output
should equal that of Great Britain
seems almost impossible, and the fact
that the iron business of the country
has doubled in ten years is a most in
structive feature.
In Washington, last week, the House
had a bribery scandal on hands (which
was not "probed to the bottom") and is
now engaged on the appropriation bills.
The Senate witnessed the strange
spectacle of Mr. Morgan of Alabama
opposing the canal treaty after pre
viously voting for the bill.
The Senate continued to be dead
locked all last week by the "Statehood
Bill," which still held the right of way
after 2 p.m., and Senator Quay played
A smart trick by offering the bill as an
amendment to an appropriation bill,but
the majority of the Republican mem
bers, having in view, the case of Dela
ware, where one wealthy man is hold
ing up the entire state, were continuing
to oppose the bill. The two teiritories
have a mixed population of Mexicans,
Indians and a few white people. Ari
zona polled about twenty thousand
votes last year in her local elections, and
New Mexico polled some thirty-thous
and. If admitted as states each one
would be entitled to one Congressman
and two United States Senators, which
would not only be an imposition on the
the other states, but also an invitation
to adventurers, as Delaware now is.
The situation, as Mated by the Phila
delphia Inquirer was, "The House pass
ed the measure, which provides for the
admission of New Mexico, Arizona and
Oklahoma as States. ' The Senate com'
mittee rejected all save Oklahoma, and
coupled with that territory the Indian
Territory. The great majority of Re
publican Senators indorse the commit
tee report. The Democrats are favora
ble to the House bill. Senator Quay
has rallied enough Republican Senators
to make a majority for admission when
added to the solid Democratic vote. He
asks that a day shall be set for the vote,
but the Republican opponents prefer
debate and postponement, hence no ac
tion can be bad.
In the midst of this deadlock Quay
stives notice of amendments to be of
fered to certain appropriation bills and
asks that tbey be referred to the Com
mittee on Organization, Conduct and
Expenditure of the Executive Depart
ments. When safely referred it be
comes known that the amendments are
really copies of the Statehood bill. The
rules are that amendments to appropri
tions must be submitted by regnlar
committees The committee chosen for
this work by Quay is one which rarely
meets, but one of which he ischairman.
The majority of it is with him, hence
the amendments have been reported fa
There are also roles that alien mat
ters must not be tacked on to appropri
ation bills, and the President Pro Tem.
will doubtless rule the territories out;
but the Senate is always able to reject
the railing of the chair if there is a ma
jority against him, hence Senator Quay
believes that the Senate will declare
that the amendments can be made.
This being the case, he farther expects
that upon a direct vote the territories
will be admitted.''
If the bill is insisted up to the end of
the session, all legislation will be block
ed, this will necessitate an extra ses
sion of the Senate to consider the trea
The hitch in the Venezuela negotia
tions was caused by all the creditor Na
tions of Venezuela insisting upon being
treated equally in the division of her
Some days ago Mr. Bo*en, acting for
Venezuela, submitted to the blockad
ing powers a proposition that thirty
per cent, of the custom? duties col
lected at La Guayra. Puerto Cabello
and Maraeaibo, the three principal
Venezuelan ports, should be devoted to
the liquidation of the foreign claims as
to whose validity there is no dispute
and tc the payment of any awards that
may be hereafter made. This offer was
accepted by the three allies with
the reservation that the claims of the
blockading powers shonld be entitled to
a priority of satisfying. It was here
that the existing difficulty developed.
Mr. Bowen replied by pointing out that
the Venezuela Government had entered
into an agreement with other of its
creditors from which it could not with
out their consent diverge, and he ex
plained that the desire and the inten
tion were distribute the thirty per cent,
of the customs duties equally among
those entitled to receive it. He has
since, under instructions from his prin
cipal refused to favor the blockading
nations, and there the matter rests.
Unless the allied powers withdraw
from the position which they appear to
have assumed it will be difficult to
avoid the conclusion that their couise
is inspired and directed by some other
motive than the collection of the out
standing debt, that they have some ul
terior purpose in view which they are
unwilling to disclose.
About seventy-five Republicans of
Butler met in Room G of the Younkin's
building last Friday evening and
elected P. W. Ruff chairman of the
city committee, W. J. Marks vice
chairman, A. M. Christley secretary,
and J E. Franklin treasurer. A
number of preliminary matters were
considered, discussed and acted upon,
and an aggressive campaign was de
cided upon
The receipts of the State Treasury for
this year, available for appropriations
are estimated at 15i millions, and the
estimated of the expenses of the state
for the year is 16i millions, leaving an
imiaginary deficit of a million
In the Senate, Tuesday, Mr. Williams
of Bntler introduced a bill appropriat
ing $50,000 to Slipperyrock Normal.
The house, by the decisive vote of 111 to
57, defeated the Grady bill appropriat*
ing #25,000 for the erection of a monu
ment to the memory T>f Simon Came
ron In the bill Senator Quay, Alex
ander J. Cassatt and Col. Alexander
McClue were named as a commission to
fulfill the obligation imposed. As Sen
ator Grady was authority for the state
ment that Col. Quay is very much in
terested in the measure, in reality its
sponsor, an unfriendly significance was
by some placed upon the action of the
house. The bill wfts reconsidered
Wednesday by Durham's orders and
The proposition to erect a statue to
the rebel general, Robert E. Lee, on the
battlefield of Gettysburg, was debated
in the hall of the House of Representa
tives on Tuesday evening of last week.
Col. A. K. MtClurespoke infavorofthe
bill providing for the erection of the
statute, and Judge John Stewart, of
Chambersburg, against it.
Colonel McClure said he did not plead
the cause of Confederacy, but on the
other hand, he pleaded the cause of the
Union—the common union. He wanted
to make the battlefield of Gettysburg
worthy of the nation. It should in it
self tell its own story. He pictured the
monuments and tablets on Cemetery
Hill which tell in every detail the story
of the Union side of that great battle.
Across the fields, on Seminary Ridge,
he said, the story of the other side
should be told in monument and tablet.
They should not be placed there as a
j tribute to the Rebellion, but as a tribute
to the heroism of the Blae and the Gray.
The visitor from a foreign land to the
battlefield of Gettysburg would traverse
its magnificent avenues, study the posi
tions occupied by the two great armies,
and could not fail to be impressed with
the equal valor of the forces there lock
ed in deadly conflict. He would inquire
why one side of the story is given in im
perishable KORurnents, while the other
has nothing to tell of the equally skilled
and valiant chieftains whb gave oyer
twenty thousand of their heroes to the
dead and wounded of the battle, ami
would he not ask the question :
"Were njt the chieftains and warriors
on both sides Americans ? Were they
not brothers, whose fathers had reared
the great free gov*rau;ent of the world
deeply crimsoned with their LIocU, and
who had shared in the trials and tri
umphs of the Union in the Revolution
ary War, in the second war with Eng
land, and on the plains of Mexico?"
What answer could we make to day
to such inoqiries forty years after this
great battle waa fought'' Viewed from
the standpoint of the teiupe>ej passions
of the present, does not the battlefield
of Gettysburg now stand as a colossal
monument teaching the gospel of hate?
Legislators, soldiers, patriots of Penn
sylvania, how can such a monument en
dure when hate has perished?
Speaking of the opposition to the mon
ument. he called atteatiop to the high
places now occupied by Confederal* gen
erals. "There is no honor short of the
Presidency," fce said, "that has not been
given to Confederates with the consent
of all parties."
At the conclusion of Colonel McClure's
address Mr Bliss introduced Judge John
Stewart, of Chambersbum. JudgeStew
art said he was sustainedby an abiding
confidence that in no event would the
Lee statue bill receive legislative ap
proval "I am deeply and unalterably
opposed to this measure," he said,
amidst loud applause, and followed this
by a prophecy thaf, after its defeat no
body would ever attempt tu re/iye it.
He did not think this bill was the prod
uct of Colonel McClure's good judgment.
It was begotten of exaggerated charity.
He denied the legal right of the Leg
islature to pass this bill. "We who are
opposed to it will never give over our
opposition until the court of last resort
says we .jjinet," said Judge Stewart,
with upraised band, f»pd applause fol
He gave a brief sketch of the forma
tion of the Gettysburg Memorial Asso
ciation and said: "You cannot pass a
law that impairs a contract and we rest
upon th« right of those who gave that
field to its charitable use.
"What is to be gained by putting this
ntatueof Lee on Gettysburg battlefield;"
asked the speaker. "If yon want his
toric accuracy as your excuse, then place
upon this field a statute of Lee holding
in his hand the banner under which he
fought, bearing the legend: 'We wage
! this waragainota government conceiv
ed in liberty and dedicate/) to humanity.'
"There i» nothing in history to com
pare with this," said Jndge Stewart.
"Will the speaker pardon me?" said
Colonel Tom Cooper, "but there Is now
a uionnment being erected on the battle
field of Brandy wine to Washington and
"But they were pairM* *}gbting for
th« same cause," retorte/l Ju(Jg« bf,e-y
"Yes," said Cooper, "bnt they lost
the battle,' and a wavu of laughter
swept over the room, which increased ao
Colonel Stewart retorted with "Jnst as
I trust yon will lose this bill."
In closinic he begged the Legislature,
"in the name of the dead who rest in
the hills of (iettsburg to leave them
alone in their glory. "

Much disappointment is expressed
and much indignation is manifested at
the discontinuance of R. F. D. route
No. 74 on account of the delay in and
disarrangement of mail intended for
patrons of this route. The majority
had provided themselves with approved
boxes and the money loss thus expend
ed is no small item. It has been diffi
cult from the beginning to secure
carriers for this route on account of a
loop in the route that never should have
been made and which extended to a
point within 'A miles of West Sunbury.
This loop shonld have been divided be
tween two routes from West Sunbury
that enter the twp. and one from

on this road are mostly a quiet, civil
and intelligent class of persons.
George W. Moser died at his home on
Friday morning of an illness of long
duration. By his death our twp. loses
one of its most highly respected citizens.
At different periods he held positions of
profit and trust in the twp. which, in
part, shows the high esteem manifested
toward him by the home people. Mr.
Moser was a brave and loyal soldier in
the army of the Union during the
Civil War.

In the death of Mrs. Mary Clark and
daughter Emeline, of Middletown, not
only the immediate family, but also the
friends and neighbors have sustained a
loss which has not its counterpart with
in the recollection or our community.
They were both lovely characters.
This was an example of that beautiful
confidence which should, but often does
not, exist between mother and daugh
ter. As WHS remarked by our pastor at
the funeral of Mrs. Clark, "She was ca
pable, faithful and patient."
The same virtues were characteristic
of the daughter. Always at their post.
Always diligent in every good work
Neither waited for sickness to make
them ready for death, but long ago
with all the promise of long life, their
hearts were given to their Master. So
while lying on beds of pain they had
nothing to do but wait for the change
which will surely come to all, aud may
suddenly come to some.
Their last sickness was contracted at
the bedside of the aged father and
grandfather, and although every thing
was done which love and skill could de
vise, the mother was first taken, and
while sorrowing friends stood over Eme
line hoping almost against hope that
she would be spared, she too in less than
a week passed away.
The family has the sympathy of the
entire community. While we feel this
loss keenly we are not forgetful that in
tense beyond comparison is the sorrow
around the desolate fireside, where the
places of these loved ones will ever be
found vacant. May we all live sc that
we may be reunited at the "marriage
supper of the Lamb."

to consult the ordinary
gathered into that brief sentence, "A
chance for life."
There is another class of people, those
in danger from disease, who understand
how much lies in those few words.
There are meu and women living to-day
in healthy, active enjoyment of life who
can look back to the time when they
were weak and emaciated, coughing un
til the blood trickled over their lips, see
ing no hope of escape from that dread
disease consumption.
But a chance for life came to them
and they took it.
"I feel very grateful for the home
treatment given me by the World's Dis
pensary Medical Association," writes Mr.
T. J. I*. Brown, of Sands, Watauga Co.,
N. C. " I had catarrh for several years,
then took grip, also had hemorrhage
from the lungs. I had the l>est medical
attention, but only to bring partial re
lief. I got up for a few months, but had
more hemorrhages. I too* Dr. K 's
Discovery (twenty-five or thirty bottles),
but in a few months I had more spells of
bleeding. I wrote to Dr. Pierce and re
ceived directions what kind of medicine
to use; I commenced taking his 'Golden
Medical Discovery' and Dr. Sage's Ca
tarrh Remedy. I had only taken one
bottle when I could see I was improving.
I used five bottles of the ' Discovery' and
three bottles of Dr. Sage's Catarrh Rem
edy. I have been able to do any kind
of labor for more than twelve months.
Well, I just simply owe my life to the
World's Dispensary Medical Association."
Arguing from the cures effected by the
use of Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Dis
covery, there's a good chance of recov
ery for every one who suffeis witli weak
lungs, obstinate cough, bronchitis and
other forms of disease which if neglected
or unskilfully treated find a fatal termi
nation in consumption. What the
chance of recovery is may be determined
by the fact that of the thousands of per-
sons who have used "Golden Medical
Discovery" (and when necessary con
sulted Dr. Pierce by letter, free), ninety
eight per cent, have been perfectly and
permanently cured. In severe cases of
pulmonary disease "Golden Medical Dis
covery " has worked wonders. It has
come to the sick man or woman as a last
resort. The breath came in gasps; the
cough was deep and distressing, there
were hemorrhages, night-sweats, emacia
tion and great weakness. The doctor in
many cases had gone his way saying
"There's nothing more to be done."
Then Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Dis
covery was used and the cure began.
The cough disappeared. The hemor
rhages ceased. Flesh w.is put on. And
the once hopeless sufferer was at length
restored to the activities of labor and
the enjoyment of life. Thousands wit
ness to these facts and these witnesses
know whereof they speak because they
are men and women who testify that they
owe their lives to "Golden Medical Dis
specialist in dbeast-? More in most cases
than the average person lias to spend in
fees. Yet persons suffering from chronic
diseases are invited to consult an extra
ordinary Specialist by letter, free.
Dr. Pierce, chief consulting physician
to the Invalids' Hotel and Surgical In
stitute, Buffalo, N. Y., is an extraordin
ary specialist. He is extraordinary in an
unbroken experience in the treatment
and cure of disease which extends over
thirty years. He is extraordinary in his
success: 98 per cent, of those lie has
treated being absolutely and entirely
cured. He is extraordinary in that he
puts at the disposal of correspondents
not only his own services but the ser
vices of his medical staff numbering
nearly a score of qualified physicians.
There is no other offer of free medical
advice which has behind it so renowned
an Institution as the Invalids' Hotel and
Surgical Institute, or such a successful
specialist as Dr. Pierce. Write in confi
dence to Dr. R. V. Pierce, Buffalo, N. Y.
Dp not accept any substitute for " Gold
en iledical Discovery." The medicine
that dealers sometimes offer as "just as
good" as Dr. Pierce's is not the medi
cine which has cured the thousands who
testify that when all other medicines
failed "Golden Medical Discovery" re
stored them to perfect and permanent
