Value of Cool Lands.
In a review of the realty situation in
the Pittsbnrs district the Pittsburg
Press of Sunday quotes a broker as say
ing that he expects to Bee the prices of
oo*l lands soar a great deal higher, in
the next two or three years. It was
pointed out that the sales in the last
year or two bad been so enormous as to
cause a shortage in the supply. There
m but few big blocks in the market
anywhere in the Pittsburg district The
Piw says that this view of the situa
tion should be of value to owners of
owl and they should act wisely by hold
ing on to their land and awaiting de
velopments. This advice can be taken
for j»b»t it is worth by the fanners of
Butler county who have not yet sold
fhafc coat. The fact remains, however,
that those who have waited have realiz
ed much more than thoee who let go of
their holdings when the first purchaser
along. The value of coal lands in
the greater Plttaburg district of which
Butler county is an important part will
continue to increase in value and it is to
HM material interests of the owners of
this property and of the county that
they should realize from this enhance
merit of values.
The Democratic Millstone.
—— *
Mr. Bryan in his address at Chicago
Saturday gave an interesting exhibition
of a man so self-centered and self com
placent aa to be unable to read and inter
tntthetoaaooaoCthe recent past. As to
bis sincerity there can be no doubt, and
the certainty that be is sincere makes
the spectacle all the more amazing.
Mr. Bryan,while right in the conclusion
he reaches that the Democratic party
could not succeed with Cleveland for its
nominee, is wrong in believing that the
Democratic party is handicapped in any
degree by the attitude of tbe Cleveland
ndmlnUtration toward corporations.
What is remembered against Cleveland
la Us attitude on protection to Ameri
can industries, and what is remembered
in hto favor is his attitude toward tbe
money question. His attitude toward
American industries is, however, the
traditional attitude of his party, and in
adhering to his party's free 'trade poli
cies he waa entirely true to his plat
form of principles. It is. therefore tbe
particular policy that distinguished
Cleveland's administration that is an
Impediment to his party rather'than the
man himself. There is no effort in tbe
Democratic party to repudiate free
trade aa a cardinal plank of party prin
ciple. Mr. Bryan bimslf adheres to it
as strongly as does Cleveland. If we
looh U >h»agtion of Democratic conven
tions to find what is by tbem consider- 1
ed to be the handicap to Democratic
success, we discover that there is a
Strong feeling that tbe handicap is the
particular party policy which was dic
tated by Mr. Bryan himself in two
campaigns, and which he is endeavor
ing to fasten upon bis party in another
campaign. Tbe lowa Democratic con
HMlHHlßsatprmctically all Demo
crate approve the inspiring motive of tbe
Cleveland administration, while a large
atetiOß of tba Democratic party
mpodtotea tba inspiring motive
;tf tba Bryan dominance of tbe
Democratic party enables disinterest
ed observers to sse what is obecured to
Bryan's vision, that be rather than Cle
veiand to looked on by Democrats as tbe I
mfltotone —Pg. gazette.
No Hanger of Htortn.
Although United States Steel stocks
touched the lowest point yesterday since
the combination of vast interests, com
mon selling for $25 flat, the market
showed a slight tendency toward recov
•ry at tbe close, and all alarm over the
possibility of a financial storm has been
pretty generally dispelled, even in tbe
most conservative of business circles.
Tbe depression of leading stock* is a
fixed programme with many of tbe
most influential operators of Wall St.;
but, tba dally battles having narrowed
down to men who are able to stand the
rude sboc&s of war, tbe public is well
satisfied to leave tbem to their own
method? to long as tbe prosperity of tbe
country and tranquility in tbe financial
world arenot disturbed.
Tbe general belief to that a return to
higher atocb values to only a question of
a short time, although this desirable
condition will hot be reached without
severe losses to thousands of heavy in
vestors the country over: while as for
Urn small fry in the market, they have
already been pretty generally wiped off
tbe speculative earth.— Dispatch.

YzvrZRDAY'h dispatches contained
accounts of soother battle in Venezuela,
in which the government troops captur
ad the town of Bolivar. One para
graph of tha account reads tbmdy—
"The government forces, which were

Public Franchises.
Up in the pretty city of Toronto, |
public franchises are negotiated
for thr- a municipal agency repre
senting the community as a whole. In-'
stead of leaving street railway franchis- •
ee to be scrambled for by the politi
dans, the city of Toronto itself took the
franchise, fixed ite terms and invited
competition for a lease limited to 35
years. The main consideration was to
provide accommodation for the public,
and the interests of every class of the
community were considered. Different
classes of tickets were provided for, ran
ging in price from 10 for 25 cents to 8
for 25 cents, good daring special hours.
Tickets good at any time on week
days 6 for 25 cents. and on
Snndays at 7 for 25 cents. Moreover, it
wa f provided that the ca»s should be of
such design as the city engineer should
approve, and that the lines thould be run
on such streets, and cars should be run
at as frequent intervals as the city an
thorities should direct.
For a franchise so conditioned and
limited to 25 years, reserving to the
city the right to purchase the plant at
the expiration of the franchise the
company which holds the lease pays
$»00 per mile of single track and 8 per
cent on all grow receipts up to a million
dollars, the percentage increasing for
each additional half million until it
amounts to 20 per cent, upon all receipts
over #3,000,000 per annum Thus, in ad
dition to securing cheap fares for the
people, the city derives a large revenue
from the franchise, amounting last year
to $235,447, and, moreover the company
pays taxes upon all its property, the
sum last year amounting to $22,758 96.
The company is prosperous and declares
regular dividend/*, but, of course there
is no capitalization of franchise value
in its stocks and bonds The exhibit
shows what good municipal manage
ment can do; the results of municipal
mismangement and incompetency can
be seen all about ns.

Brady's Jump.
John P. Cowan wrote up Brady's Bend
for last Sunday's Gazette, and winds up
hia interesting article as follows:
"Fonr miles from the river is the
bamlet of Kaylor A few months ago
this place could boast only of a store
and a blacksmith shop. Mince tbe com
ing of tbe railroad and the bnilding of
the coal tipples its population ho* in
creaaed to almost 1,000.
Everywhere there are evidences of
prosperity. Many of the house* thai
nave been vacant for a decade have
been rebuilt by Mr. Dewey and are be
ing rapidly picked up by tenants.
A drive through tbia region i* a reve
latiori to tbe sojourner who delights to
a away from tbe maddening crowd,
first thing that your driyer will V 11
you is the story of Bra/1 y's escapade.
It seems that every tx-rson in the town
has bia own version. Down on tbe
bank of the river, while sitting in a
skiff that is used to ferry the romantic
stream, a boy pointed out a jotting cliff
on the Armstrong county side of tbe
stream and said confidentially:
"Over yonder is where Captain Brady
lumped off when the Indiana chased
him. He jumped clear down ofT the
top of that rock into the river and
swum the *tream and they didut dare
to follow him, either.''
The story Is a good one but it would
be rank heresy to repeat it in Beaver Uo.
where the people point out one of their
hills and tell the same tale. Neverthe
less the youngsters up here like to relate
the incident and I suppose it doe* i hem

the good people of Heiver." ,

Poi>e Leo XIII, died at the Vatican in
Home, at -1 P. M. of Monday, or about
10 A M. of our time—(there being a
difference of six hours'—aged 03 years.
The funeral will not occur for several
days, and after that will come the elec
tion of a new Pope by the College of
In the meantime Cardinal Oreglia
Dean of the Sacred College will act as
The death of the pope brings about a
widespread change in all the administra
tive departments of the church and con
siderably influences questions of church
policy. The change within the Vatican
affects practically all the officials from
the highest to the lowest. Cardinal
Rampolla retires from the post of secre
tary of state, where he exercised a
strong influence, owing to the physical
infirmities of Leo. Other high officials
are similarly affected, the master of the
chamber, the under secretary of state,
the vicar of Rome, the vice chancellor,
the grand penitentiary, the librarian of
the Vatican and a host of lesser officials.
These will continue to exercise their
functions until the new pope is elected,
when he will designate his own secre
tary of state and other officials to carry
on the various important branches of
the church's work.
Thus there is a complete transforma
ation of apoetolic authority, tbe death
of the pope meaning the nominal death
of all the officials under him. The pro
paganda alone remains intact, as the
prefect and entire machinery of the
propaganda is unaffected. The chief
international questions which may be
affected by the death of the pope are
thoe< connected with the suppression of
religious orders in France, the change
of the clergy in the new Spanish-Ameri
can possessions, the selection of the suc
cessor of the late Cardinal Vaughan and
attendant questions connected with the
administration of the church in Eng
land. Emperor William's visit to the
pope created a new bond of sympathy
between Germany and the vatican All
these questions are more or leaf affected
by the death of the pope.
Among the Vatican officials the
Philippine question involving transfers
from tne Spanish to the American hier
archy and the elimination of the friars
is regarded as one of the most impor
tance. The present Philippine policy
had the hearty approval of Leo XIII.
and there is no reason to believe that it
will be changed The relation" be
tween the Italian government and the
Vatican continue to be serious problems
Although the temporal authority of the
papacy terminated eight yean before
Leo XIII became pope, ha steadfastly
maintained the principle of temporal
power and lost no oppitotllnity to B|
deavor to secure its r<fttstation.
though the futility of tts cdirtest has
been recognized in recent years, -ftfe
question of the relations of the govern
ment and the Vatican remains one of
tbe highest importance.
Monsignor Gasparie, who, it is said,
will be designated by Cardinal Oreglia
to succeed the late Monsignor Volpini
as secretary of the consistory, served as
secretary of the special commission of
cardinals appointed to deal with the
Philippine question. In this capacity
he took a prominent part in the negotia
tion with the Taft commission in Rome
last year.
In point of longevity Leo was third
among the popes, having been surpass
ed only by rope Agatho, who died in
6*2. at the age of 107, and Gregory IX,
in 1241, aged 08.
HIM Beat Monument.
Much has been printed within the
{last two weeks about the life of Leo.
He has been acclaimed the greatest of
modern popes. His closing hours have
revealed bis greatness as a man. Take
tbe incident where Mgr. Angeli. one of
bis secretaries, described to him the
world wide sympathy which his illness
had elicited, declaring that it had pro
duced a revival favorable to the Church
unexampled in its history. "Blessed
illness! " exclaimed the Pontiff. Devo
tion could go no further. It is this ef
fort of his exhibition of fortitude which
is most consoling to those who have es
teemed him. 'He has shown the world
how a good man can die. Something
of tbe same spirit was felt by th»; nation
I which watched around the bedside of
William McKinney. There was a mor
al quickening which could not be mea.s
tired, yet was undoubtedly far-reaching.
The calm courage of the dying pope
will no don M b*• r—Hrr&xi in n similar
awakening, extending even bevond the
limits of the church over which be pre
The progress toward the sympathetic
union of the churches which has been
accomplished during his tenure of office
has been strikingly shown during his
illness. Creeds and dogma were forgot
ten. I'rayers were offered for his recov
ery in churches as wide apart when be
ascended the throne as the poles. There
may not be any tangible tendency to
ward unification, but that there is a
broadening liberality and tolerance is
indisputable. As much of this as i* dne
to the wisdom and progress)veness of

Geo. Clay Declared Insane.
< >ne of the final scenes of a remark
•>ble rouuanee was enacted in the court
room at Richmond, Kentucky, last
week when Gen. Cassias M. Clay. aged
93, was declared insane. A week pre
viouslv Dora Richardson Brock, the
divorced child wife of the aged Ken
tnckian, had declared her intention of
going on the stage. It is alleged Gen.
( "lay has been insane several years, and
his mad love for a 16-year old girl, who
was 13 when she married him, is held to
be largely responsible for his condi
tion. At the time of the marriage
Gen. Clay was 90. He was cultured, a
a man of repute in the affairs of the
Nation, the scion of a famous family
and the possessor of wealth. She was
illiterate, untutored in the ways of the
world, content amid her lowly surround
Gen Clay treated his wife as a child,
He bought her dolls, picture books, toy
furniture, and many other things which
have been made to amuse children. Fi
nally the old man purchased his young
wife a doll about 20 inches long and
filled with mechanical contrivances that
caused it to talk, and cry, and laugh.
The general's attempts to educate his
wife were futile. She read a little and
wrote a little, but she had no taste for
books and art After a few months she
ray away with a fanner youth, whom
she married after Gen. Clay secured a
The girl's second husband, whose
name was Brock, died in a short time.
The love of the aged soldier and diplo
mat for the young country girl then
sprang to life again, and he sought to
have her return to Whitehall, his coun
try seat, as his wife in as ardent a
fashion as when she first left him to go
back to her brother's humble shack in
the woods. His children interfered,
however, and prevented a reconcilia
tion. By the proceedings in the insane
court they have also blocked his plan to
leave his whole estate to Dora Richard
son. He is now confined to bis home
with a nnrse and guards His health is
poor, and it is feared he cannot live
It is said Dora Richardson will make
her first stage appearance nert month
in Boston, and that she will be advertia
ed as "the child wife of Gen. Cassius
M Clay."
