April 15, 1905.
Butler, Pa.

of recent date and am pleased to learn
that yon are a candidate for State
Treasurer. lam a delegate to the State
Convention and will give you my hear
ty support.
I could not, under any circumstances,

An Incident of the Last Day.
(R. W. Herbert in Pittsburg Times.)
Thomas H. Garvin, chief clerk of the
House, was caught red-handed to-day,
(Wednesday of last week), in murdering
a bill for which a vast majority of the
members had voted. The bill was en
titled "An act providing a penalty for
making usurious loans," and was being
opposed openly by the pawnbrokers of
Philadelphia and other cities of the
State, who had paid to have it killed.
The bill has been here for several ses
sisons as a "pincher," and was probably
Introduced early this session for the
same purpose. However, the pawn
brokers refused to be "pinched" by the
members generally, and are alleged to
have paid a select few to have the
measure killed at the proper time. The
responsibility for the murder apparent
ly devolved upon Clerk Garvin, and he
went about his work in the most brutal
way. The Philadelphia members had
not been taken in, and they refused to
stand for the slaughter. The exact
amount of money employed to defeat
the bill is just now in dispute, but the
charge is openly made that the cash
was divided among two or three persons,
none of whom had a vote. The incident
was probably the most sensational of
the session, and provoked by far the
bitterest fight of the term. The bill
was promptly passed in the Senate early
in the session, but had been held back
in the House to be "juggled" in the rush
and confusion of the closing hours.
There was not sufficient rush and con
fusion, however, to conceal the bold
outlawry of the chief clerk, and he was
forced to beat a hurried and dishonor
able retreat by those for whom he had
often cheated in the past.
Repeatedly during the present session
Mr. Garvin has been able to trick the
Democratic minority and the guileless
country fellows, but to-day for the first
time he stacked up against the Phila
delphia contingent which had not been
taken in on the deal aud he was shame
fully exposed. Mr. Garvin is often
brazen and courageous in his manipula
tion of the vote on question at issue.
To-day, however, he appeared some
what of a coward. The fight upon him
was made from an unexpected source
and he shrank helplessly from the fir
ing. His count on the bill showed that
it had failed, his tally recording only
M votes for it. Twice the roll was
verified and when the final and honest
count was recorded there was not a
■ingle vote against the bill and 146
votes were recorded for its passage.
Capt. Thomas Hays, of Butler county,
took a hand in the affair and added ma
terially to the general confnsion by de
manding that Mr. Garvin be deprived
of the privilege of recording the votes
for the remainder of the session. Speak
er Henry F. Walton assumed an air .of
outraged indignation and protested
against the attacks upon Mr. Garvin,
but was successful only in keeping
Capt. Hays out of the game Just when
the fight was the hottest Caf t. Hays de
manded attention and shouted out:
"Mr. Speaker, I want to say right here
and now that I have a resolution to
knock out 'Tom' Garvin from recording
any more rolls this session." Speaker
Walton refused to recognize the Butler
county member and the fight was con
tinued until the bill was pawed finally.
Both houses of the Legislature met
for the last time last Thursday noon; in
the Senate Senator Woods of Westmore
land Co. was elected president pro. tern.
foi next session; the calendars had been
cleared, the farewell speeches were
made, the biennial boquets presented,
and both houses adjourned.
That day Gov. P. signed the Cook
bill taking away from private water
companies the right of eminent domain.
The Gov. has about 500 bills on hands,
which he must take action upon by May
18th. or else they become laws without
his sanction. During the session he
signed lOti and vetoed 30 bills.
That evening the town was deserted
by the legislators, and resumed its
customary calm, not to be awaked till
the 26th, when the Republican state
convention meets there.
"The insurrection throughout the
session developed anion*? county mem
bers. They were absolutely uncontroll
ed. Their independence demonstrated
that there are no leaders in their coun
ties allied with the State organization
competent to keep their representatives
in line. Quay always controlled the
country districts; Penrose, Durham or
the Pittsburg allies are not competent
to suceeed him in this respect. Quay
always won his fights with country
help; Penrose i 9 aiming solely to survive
with the help of Philadelphia and Pitts

bodes ill fcr the giant "statesman."
The country members have succeed
ed in holding up all bills they systemat
ically started in to kill. They were re
sponsible for the failure of the Senate
to send the Puhl bill aiming at law and
order societies to the Governor. It failed
to reach the Governor. The Erhardt
bills died because of apprehension on
the part of the leaders. They were de
feated in the libel law fight. Any or
ganization bill of a doubtful character
put through this session required the
combined effort of the entire organiza
At the Republican primaries in Law
rence county, last Saturday, L. Bald
win was nominated for Treasurer; C.
A. Andrews for Prothonotary; Elder
and Keimm for Auditors, andMcMillen
and Pitts for Commissioners.
In Mercer county Hawthorn was
nominated for Sheriff; Fowler for Pro
thonotary; Jones for Clerk of Courts;
Young for Recorder; Zahnhiser for
Treasurer; Cochran tor District Attor
ney; Perrine for Poor Director, and Ho
sack and Gill for Commissioner.
In Venango county Criswell is nomi
nated for Judge; Thompson for Protho
notary; Buchanan for Register and Re
corder; Algeo for Treasurer; Phillips
and Shanor for Commissioners, and
Baker aDd Stiles for Auditors.
On Monday, at Philadelphia, Senator
Penrose announced that he would retiie
as State Chairman, and it was supposed
that he would be succeeded by W. R.
Andrews. It seems to be taken for
granted that the old Judges of the Su
perior Court—Rice, Beaver and Orlady
—will be renominated, and that J. L.
Plummer of Blair, late Chairman of
the Appropriations Committee will be
nominated for State Treasurer. The
proposed advancement of Andrews
caused some talk regarding the nomi
nation for Governor, next year. Huff,
Flinn, Woods. Andrews and others
were mentioned.
It ts practtcally settled, says an ex
change, that the machine program for
this year's convention will go through
undisturbed. But for the Governorship
next year a more serious contest is fore
shadowed. An unusual number of can
didates, ranging in personal qualites
and record from very good to vtry bad,
with the intermediate grades of indif
ference, are already in the field, each
with a support behind him of no Blight
importance to the mcchine.
At the meeting of the Republican Co-
Committee of Clearfield Co., Tuesday,
no speeches were made, no resolutions
adopted, and five uninstructed delegates
to the State Convention were elected
It was a model Convention.
When the Russian fleet passed the
harbor of Saigon, in French Cochin-
China, last week, the Admiral sent all
his sick ashore in his hospital ship. The
fleet was next reported in Camranh
harbor about 200 miles northeast of
Saigon, and in territory claimed by
the French.
On Taesday the Russian fleet was re
ported off Hongkong, sailing eastward,
by the Hongkong correspondent (who is
gaining a reputation as a liar.)
Togo is reported in the vicinity of
Formosa, and his torpedo boats are
making a special effort to capture and
destroy the Russian colliers.
Yesterday the Russians were report
ed to have cut the cable between For
mosa island and Foochow, China; and
the Jap fleet was reported in the waters
between Formosa and the Philippines.
A REMARKABLE cure of a case of
cancer, by the use of dissolved radium
is reported from a New York hospital.

Cerebro-Spinal Meningitis.
Editorial reference is made by ' 'The
Medical Record," of this city, to a mode
of treatment of cerebro-spinal meningi
tis which originated abroad, about ten
years ago. As tried by Aufrecht, whose
nationality can only be guessed, it con
sisted of a hot bith. lasting fifteen min
utes and administered twice a day, an
ice pack being applied to the patient's
head in the mean time. The tempera
ture ol the bath was 104 degrees Fahr
enheit. From the fact that a Dr. Stock
ton, of Buffalo, reviewed the literature
on the subject for a recent issue of the
Albany "Medical Annals," it may be
inferred that the system iscomparative
ly new to Americans However that
may be. the most enthusiastic testimo
ny is offered by a Russian named Ro
gansky. Of 51 patients whom he treat
ed in the manDer here described 34 re.
covered and 17 died, the mortality beiDg
83 per cent. Of 50 cases in which the
Aufrecht method was not adopted 40(or
80 per cent) resalted fatally. Some di
versity of opinion concerning the vir
tues of the treatment is said to exist,
but in the figures given by Rngansky
"The Medical Record" finds reason for
recommending a trial of the hot bath by
physicians in New-York and other
American cities.
What appears to be a variation of the
g .ime thing was briefly outlined in a
Boston dispatch. Dr. Brough, a noted
brain specialist, is represented as say
ing that in cases which have come un.
der his observation (and which were
probably under his care) only the por
tion of the body below the waist was
subject to the heat, and above that
line ice was used. The principle involv
ed in the Boston venture is identical
with that which underlies the Aufrecht
system. The blood is driven from the
seat of disease and attracted to other re
gions. In one instance, though, the
brain alone is regarded as the S'*ene of
bittle, and in the other the enemy is
attacked both in the brain and spinal
cjlumn. Theoretically, at least, there is
in the Boston modification of the
plan, and it is to be hoped that statisti
cal information about its effects will be
forthcoming. The profession will also
be glad to know whether there is auy
difference in the length of time each
day during which the two methods are
Two other modes of treatment have
recently been proposed. One was tried
by Dr. William Tod Helmnth, of this
city, a week or more ago. He removed
two small sections of a patient's sknll
to facilitate the discharge of the serum
which is a product of the disease and
the pressure of which upon the brain is
believed to be one of the mischief mak
ing forces of the disorder. The opera
tion had practically the same intent as
aa older one which is still in vogue,
though the value of the latter is not
fully assured. Surgeons sometimes in
troduce a needle pointed syringe into
tie canal that contains the spinal mar
row, near what is popnlarly called "the
small of the back," and draw off the
fluid which they find there; but whether
trephining is better than "lumbar
puncture" cannot be determined from a
single experiment. If Dr. Helmuth's
example is followed by other physicians
they should scrupulously report the con
sequences. t
The second innovation in practice is
the use of the antitoxin of diphtheria in
fighting cerebro-spinal meningitis. Up
to the present time enough has not been
accomplished with that agent to con
vince many physicians in New York,
bat it is being tried rather extensively
in New Eaglaud. The dispatch from
I Boston, already referred to, iudicates
that the Massachusetts State Board of
Health is furnishing the. antitoxin free
ly to all who wish to employ it. Evi
dently, therefore, medical men will be
in a better position a few months hence
then ever before to make a wise choice
of remedies. —N. Y. Tribune.

the United States of 200.000 tons (2,240
pounds each), being an increase of
18,000 tons In the preliminary estimate,
all of which is due to the unusually fa
vorable conditions during harvesting.
The largest increase shown in any one
state was Colorado. Last year the total
crops amounted to 208,135 tons.
New Wood Seaaonlnar.
The "powelllzation" of wood is a new
process reported from England for sea
soning wood quickly for Immediate use
by saturating it with a solution of beet
■ugar and then drying It with artificial
heat. The treatment Is said also to
greatly Increase the strength and the
durability of the wood. The timber so
treated resists dry rot The wood is no
longer porous and therefore more sani
tary for such uses as street paving
blocks. -
Oar Present Wheat Situation.
The present wheat situation in the
United States was the subject of an ad
dress by John C. Williams of Washing
ton before the recent meeting of the
Association For the Advancement of
Science. According to Mr. Williams, an
increase In the consumption of wheat
hns gone steadily forward in this coun
try since 1001, while the production
has declined, so that at present, tem
porarily at least, the home consump
tion and the home supply Just about
balance, leaving but little for export
Roughly stated, the wheat crop of 1904
la 552,000,000 bushels agulnst 038,000,-
000 In 1903 and 748.000,000 in 1901.
Xew Wheat Territory In XexleoT
A Canadian authority affirms the
strong probability that Mexico will bo
come one of the great wheat producing
countries within the next few year*.
Experiments with different kinds of
wheat show yields of from fifty to six
ty bushels of wheat to the acre from
the "turkey red" variety. It Is stated
that a number of syndicates have ob
tained concessions from the govern
ment by which they have the usa of
large areas of land for terms of years,
and If it is discovered that large
crops can be raised in Mexico an en
deavor will be made to place the grain

Insect Injuries to Corn.
Great is the American corn plant, and
to it is devoted a portion of tip annual
report of the Illinois state entomologist
under the subject of "'The More Impor
tant Insect Injuries to Indian Corn."
The same Is also published as bulletin
No. 95 of the Illinois experiment sta
tion. Concerning, as It does, one of the
industries of widest extent throughout
the United States, the Information
given touches the interest of nearly
every region of the country. Every
farmer north, south, east and west
may take an instructive stroll with Dr.
Forbes through the entomologic field.
There are few who will not learn some
thing of worth from the practical re
port, and the illustrations really illus
trate It in an exceptionally clear and
admirable manner.
While the economic feature receives
full attention, the author also takes iu

material value for tills purpose to the
public school teacher and student of
whatever grade. The study presented
Is Intended to furnish a clew to the
whole system of Insect life of which
the corn plant Is the center. It thus
stands as In many expects a type or
example of the relations of a plant to
Its Insect visitants.
Dr. Forbes has a pleasing way of
throwing illuminating side lights on

Official crop reporta from St. Peters
burg show the winter wheat crop in
European Russia to be good and the
crop of winter rye below the average.
'•Nursing dairy calves" is a new busi
ness noted by Rural New Yorker. Dai
rymen who retail milk In large towns
cannot afford to raise calves. The milk
is worth more to sell. After a few days
they send the little creatures to some
farmer who has a hand separator and
sells cream. He raises them on warm
skim milk and grain and sends them
fcck as yearlings.
An encouraging fact In forest man
agement is the growing determination
of large timber land owners to handle
their holdings less wastefully and to
protect the forests with the view to a
continuous yield of timber.
An area of 31,093,000 acres seeded to
winter wheat Is Orange Judd Farmer's
estimate, an Increase over the area har
vested last year of 2,500,000 acres, but
a decrease of about 1,000,000 acres as
compared with the acreage actually
seeded In the fall of 1903.

Our Half Price Sale marks a sort of division between winter
and spring. Of course, there will be a steady demand for
certain of the staid and staple lines in heavy-weights
till April, and this demand we shall meet. But
the Half Price Sale is practically the round up
of the fall and winter season—in this in
stance a season that has vastly exceeded
all former ones in volume of business.
We're determined to close out all
winter goods so a'i to make room
for our SPRING line.
