THE STATE CONVENTION.
State Chairman, Senator Penrose and
SECY Col, Andrews, have issued a call
for the Republican Btate Convention,
to meet in Harrisburg on Wednesday,
April 26th, for the purpose of nominat
ing one man for the office of Btato
Treasurer, three men forjudges of the
Superior Court, and for the disposal of
such other business as may be presented.
Selecting so early a date for the State
Convention comes aa a surprise to the
Republicans of this connty and will
necessitate some action, if we wish to
be represented in the Convention, as
onr County Committee, under the rules,
selected Saturday, May 27th, as the date
for onr Primary, this year.
To be represented in the State Con
vention we will either have to change
the date of onr Primary— say to Satur
day, April 32nd— or else have a special
election for Delegates. ' The County
Committee will probably be called upon
to meet and consider the matter, and
when they do meet all the candidates
should meet with them. This county
should be represented in the State Con
vention, and if the same effort is made
then to slur Roosevelt, as was made
in the House a few days ago, it should

Under the rules Butler county is en
titled to three delegates, while Alle
gheny county will Have 46 and Phila
delphia 114 : and it is the ward-heelers
of the two big towns who do what the
bosses tell them to, and sometimes mis
represent the sentiment of the state.
The Convention will or should consist
of 425 delegates.
The Russians, last week, estimated
Marshal Oyama's entire army at 365,000
and said they had 50,000 more than that,
and that another battle was imminent.
All sorts of "peace rumors" emanated
from London, last week, though the Jap
minister there says there is no founda
tion for them, that all his information
is to the contrary, and that proposals
for peace must come from Russia.
The second year of the war began last
Thursday. The Japs made their attack
on the Russian fleet in the outer harbor
of Port Arthur, Feb. 8, 1904, and have
done wonders since, though as they
took the initiative they have lost the

Gen. Stoeseel is on his way home from
Port Arthur, and as his court-martial
approaches, stories of the strength of
the fortress and the needlessness of the
surrender increase in volume and def-
Initeneas. Perhaps the best evidence
is that of the correspondent of the
London Times, who was allowed to go
about and inspect the surrendered for
tress. He claims that the surrender
oonld not have been due to the lack of
available men. for 25,000 of those who
were taken by the Japanese were well
fed and comfortably clad. There was
no scarcity of ammunition, as much
was available to be destroyed just be
fore the surrender, two magazines of it
were blown np and a third was crowd
ED to the roof with powder and shells.
The Japanese had avoided shelling the
populated portion of the town, where
were over 500 women, and it was little
injured. The S+ories of damage to Red
Cross hospitals were fabricated to ex
cite sympathy, as they were hardly
touched except in a few instances where
they lay in the range of the fire directed
_ to the ships and forts. Several of the
vessels were not destroyed and can be
made effective once more. Finally he
found that the supply of food and cloth

The soldiers have been patting down
demonstrations as they appeared, but
these continue to break out in new
places, resulting in conflict fatal to the
agitators. The general unrest was in
tensified by the assassination of the

Probably more significant, however,

President Roosevelt carried his policy
through the House was a warning sriven
by Representative Hepburn to the
makers of the giant combinations of
wealth. He hoped they would be wise
and obey this and other laws. If they
did not. he said, Socialism would be
come a term of terror, not for the
future, but for the present.
"When they get any other idea than
that the interests of the masses are of
greater importance than their own,
when they think theirs is the greatest
power in the land, then there will be
The utterance of that terrorizing word
produced a deathlike stillness in the
chamber. Hepburn was in earnest in
his warning to rich men. The House
caught the spirit that was moving the
lowa veteran to his utterance, and the
silence was the result, evidently, of a
realization that what he was Eaying is
Colonel Hepburn's speech alone would

The Swayne trial is on in the Senate
and witnesses are being heard every
day. One of the women from Florida,
subpoened as a witness was over-awed
by the Senate, and became too nervous
to testify. This is the first time a wo
man has appeared on the floor of the
Senate Chamber, during a formal
session, since the trial of President
"On aatumay tt»e senate snowed "its
antagonisim to the President by defeat
ing some agreements he and Sec'y Hay
had made with other Nations to sub
mit disputes to the Hague Tribunal.
"It has been evident for some time
that the Senate was preparing for a
breach with the President to test where
the real power lies. The preliminary
talk from the Senate has dwelt on as
sorted transgressions of constitutional
lines. But this is not the real cause;
since former cases in which the hasty
disregard of constitutional formalities
was more evident than in the recent
cases were swallowed by the Senate
with avidity. The Senatorial disposition
to open war has dated from the discov
ery that President Roosevelt was in
earnest for the curbing of trusts and
corporate abuses. But that was a peril
ous question on which to join issue with
a popular President, so tbe Senate wait
ed for some matter on which it could
draw a deadlock without so much
hazard, and has pitched on this one of
the arbitration treaties."
The President says he will withdraw j
all the arbitration treaties, on acconnt
of the Senate's amendments.
On Monday, in the House, Reps. Sul
livan, of Massachusetts, and William
R. Hearst, of New York, both Dem
ocrats. indulged in personalities of the
gravest character, and so stirred the
House as to arouse among certain mem
bers a feeling of the greatest indigna
tion. Mr. Sullivan heaped npon Mr.
Hearst a tirade of denunciation, while
the latter, by implication, charged Mr.
Sullivan with complicity in a murder.
A Democratic Member of Congress
from Missouri propounded this connn-,
drum the other day, ' What is the dif
ference between Jndge Parker, the
recent Democratic candidate for Presi
dent, and Moses, tbe Hebrew lawgiver?"
The answer is God hid Moses where the
people couldn't find him and the people
hid Parker where God could't find him."
The Hon. Robert Baker, of New
York, is a radical of the radicals. There
is nothing extreme enough or revolu
tionary enough for him. He is an ultra
all the time. While Mr. Baker is never
taken seriously, and does not apoear to
have any particular object in life except
to make all other extremists look like
conservatives in comparison, he is a
very ready talker, sometimes almost
brilliant. While he puts much in the
Record under the leave to print privi
lege, he is not an ordinary leave to print
orator. If he were given time enough
he would fill the Record with socialistic
propaganda and kindred literature iu
the form of fiery orations. Mr. Baker
amused the Republicans and disgusted
the Democrats the other day by accus
ing the South of having been responsible
for the nomination of Judge Parker.
"Thomas F. Ryan and Perry Belmont,"
he said, "induced you to believe that if
you would go along and support Parker
you could get the offices, and yon were
so anxious to get the offices that you
went back on your principles and joined
the procession of the safe and sane, and
you are reaping the result of your

Because of the sensational law and
order crusade in Philadelphia directed
against Mayor Weaver and the social
evil, there is a report current in Karris
burg. last Friday, that Boss Durham
has ordered a general shakeup.
Mayor Weaver, according to the story,
will b« appointed to a position on the
bench. The President of Select Coun
cil, it is reported, will succeed Weaver
until the present troubles have been
forgotten. To create a vacancy for
Weaver on the bench it will be neces
sary to pass the Judges' retirement bill,
which explains the anxiety of Repub
lican leaders to force through the Leg
islature a measure vigorously oppos
ed by a majority of the members.
Representatives Hays and Hot-ken
berry, who voted for the resolution en
dorsing the President's stand with re
gard to railway rebates and discrimina
tion, and who thereby incurred the dis
pleasure of the U. S. Senator Boies Pen
rose, have earned the thanks and heartv
congratulations of every citizen of But
ler county. Their constituents, regard
less of party, are proud of them and en
dorse their denial of the right of a boss
to dictate their votes.
Frank McClain of Lancaster Co. is
no.v the floor-leader of the House, tak
ing the the place of D. J. Shern of Phil
adelphia, who was a failure at it.
Among the bills introduced, Monday,
was one by flays of Butler, providing
that no plea of the statutes of limita
tion shall operate to bar or defeat recov
ery in any proceeding against the per
son or estate of any person who has not
had or maintained an actual residence
in Pennsylvania during the running of
any of the periods of limitation pre
scribed in such statutes in any case
whpre the cause of action shall have
arisen in this State.
An anti-treating bill was introduced
in the house by Mr. Hitchcock of Tioga.
The bill prohibits the "gratuitous fur
nishing of wines, spiritous, malt or
brewed liquors or cider at any licensed
hotel, or restaraunt or other place kept
for the sale of such liquors."
A penalty of from $5 to SSO is pre
scribed for the first offense, and from S2O
to #l2O, or from 10 to 90 days' imprison
ment for each subsequent offense.
Prosecute the Beef Trust.
If there is such a thing as a "criminal
trust" the Beef Trust fills the bill.
That trust ha 6 used its vast power,
gained by rebates from the railroads, to
lay violent hands npon the food of the
people and to fix prices at will. It has
played both ends for its sole profit It
has refused fair prices to the cattle rais
ers and has sold the product of its pack
ing houses at prices to the con
Judge Grosscup long ago granted an
injunction against the trust restraining
it from committing acts of conspiracy
in restraint of trade. That injunction
has just been made permanent by the
Supreme Court. Apparently the trust
has paid no heed whatever to the Grogs
cup ruling. If this is so, if it defiantly
went about its business as an organiza
tion or by general agreement to control
the market, then it has rendered itself
liable to criminal prosecution.
It is believed that President Roosevelt
contemplates such prosecution. If he
Bud ground for action, he will be heart
ily commended if he pushes it to the
legitimate finish. With prison threaten
ing them there would be some regard
for the law hereafter among the beef
Bad for Mitchell.
In a Federal Court in Portland, Ore.,
last Saturday, Judge A. H. Tanner,
United States Senator Mitchell's law
partner, confessed to perjury in his evi
dence given before the Federal grand
jury in connection with the investiga
tion of the land frauds iu that state,
when testimony was being taken with a
view to connecting United States Sena
tor Mitchell with the conspiracy to de
fraud the government.

Thomas Diver, the engineer of the
Bottle Works, met with a frightful ac
cident, Monday. His hand was caught
by a belt, which whirled it and the arm
into a pully, which twisted his arm off
at the elbow. He was taken to the hos
pital, where the stump was amputated,
and it was thought yesterday that he
would recover. He has made his home
here for several years, and is not mar
ried. Diver exhibited the utmost
"nerve" when the accident happened.

was bound up, and the flow of blood

New Brighton was the scene of a
terrible bob-sled accident, last Friday
night. A large sled carrying sixteen
boys dashed down a bill and into a pass
ing train, and those who did not save
■ themselves by jumping or falling off
were either k'lled or injured. Anions
tht killed was Merl Saviers, a son of
John E. Saviers, and whose mother was
Mattie Keefer, a daughter of Daniel
Keefer of West Liberty. He lived for
but ten minutes aftei the sled struck
the train. The boys had watchers post
ed at the track but their sled was going
so fast they conld not stop it. County
Commissioner McC'andless is related to
the Savifrs, and attended the funeral.

Texas oil—The Jennings oil field,
according to Colonel Alba Hey wood,
a heavy producer of the Texas and
Louisiana oil fields, is the largest in the
world. The proven area is now about
00 acres, but in this limited territory
over 8,000,000 barrels of oil have been
produced since September, 1901. Over
one half of this amount is stored in
earthern storage tanks. The present
