The Republican State Convention
that met in Harrisburg yesterday was
composed of 429 delegates the largest
in the history of the party. Judges
Rice, Orlady and Beaver were renomin
ated tor the Snperior bench , and J. L.
Plummer for State Treasurer; without
opposition. Capt Hays having with
drawn. A. M. Christley of Batler was
named as member of the State Commit
tee, The convention was called to or
der at 10.40 and adjoarned at 12.00.
A Washington D. C. correspondent
got off this, last week. ' Pennsylva
nlans here, and eeperinUy vkx® o£ tb«s
Republican persuasion, are discussing
the developments of the past week in
Pennsylvania in so far as they have a
bearing on the fight for governor next
year, and it must be admitted that all
•re more or less mystified. It is con
ceded that there is a "nigger in the
woodpile," but his identity cannot be
figured Qut. There were at least lour
developments that have tended to befog
those who pietend to be in the confi
dence of the leaders and heretofore
have established reputations of being
able to predict whom Senator Penrose
and Insurance Commissioner Durham
will name when the time comes to de
cide," and he goes on to blather about
Andrews, Elkin, Huff, Wiley, Sibley,
Watree, etc.
On Thursday last Gov. P. signed
seventeen and vetoed seven of the bills
in his hands. Among the bills signed
was the new pure-food law, and another
fixing a penalty for throwing rubbish
on the streets; also the Greater Pitts
* burg bill, which was the cause of a
jubilee in Pittsburg.
On Friday he signed two bills and
heard some arguments; and on Satur
day he signed twenty-nine bills and
vetoed six. The bills signed relate to
Sheriff's deeds, turnpike sidewalks,
adulteration of oils, division of town
ships, state supervision of sewerage,
railroad crossing, underground conducts
for telegraph and telephone wires,
building cf school houses, election of
school secretaries, collection of collater
al-inheritance tax, public libraries, use
of explosives, capital stock of corpora
tions, etc., etc.; and will make some
reading matter for the attorneys of the
ftate when the Pamphlet Laws for the
session appear in book form.
THE discovery of a revolutionary plot
among the officers of the Czar's personal
guard shows more than any other re
cent development the internal condi
tion of Russia and the extent to which
the spirit of terrorism has spread.
A COLLATERAL issue of the life in
surance squabble appears in the discus
sion of the propriety of using insurance
funds by having either the companies
themselves or their officers 'underwrite'
corporate securities. The existence of
this practice seems beyond dispute.
Frank G. Bigelow, president of the
First National Bank, of Milwaukee, was
arrested, Monday, charged with the
embezzlement of over SIOO,OOO of the
bank's funds. The arrest of Mr. Bige
low followed his confession to the board
of directors of the bank that he was a
defaulter to the extent of $1,450,000.
Following Mr. Bigelow's confession he
was removed from the presidency of the
bank and facts in the case were laid be
fore the Federal authorities. He lost
the money speculating in stocks and
THE New York corrupt-practices bill
passed by the Senate of that state with
out a dissenting vote contains feature*
that introduce new deterrents to the
methods by which elections are debauch
ed. The main one is the expenditure of
money contrary to the provisions of the
statutes, bribery or attempts to bril>e
yoters or to induce them to refrain from
voting or registering in sufficient num
ber to indicate that they are part of a
general plan is cause for declaring tliu
election null and void and ordering a
new election; but, if a petitioner alleges
fraud without having proof to make
good his allegation the law provides for

The entire Russian fleet left Kamranh
Bay, Cochin China, last Saturday at
noon; were heard at target practice
that afternoon, and when last seen were
headed north, though it was said they
would stop for coal at Hainan island.
It would be a rash prophecy, aavs the
Scientific American, to declare that in
the impending battle victory must fall
to the Japanese fleet. Matters are not
as they were when the determination
was first taken to dispatch a second
fleet to the Pacific. Since that time at
least one, and probably two, of the Jap
anese battleships have been lost beyond
recovery, and it is quite possible that
Togo can oppose but four battleships to
the seven battleships under Roiestven
sky—and it is battleships that decide
the fate of a naval campaign.
There can be no question that the
Baltic fleet has been greatly underesti
mated by the general public, partly be
cause of the North Sea incident, and
partly because of the widely-circulated
rumor that this was a "scratch fleet,'
composed of obsolete ves3els. As to
this last, nothing could be farther from
the truth. Four of the battleships are
absolutely new. They are an improve
ment upon the "Czarevitch,' which, it
Will be remembered, stood for hours
tbe concentrated attack of Togo's bat
tleships, without having any of her big
gnns silenced or the structural efficien
cy of her hull seriously impaired. These
f jur ships are probably able to stand a
giverer hammering, and are more diffi
cult to sink by gun fire than any ships
afloat in the world to-day. The "Boro
dino'' "Orel,"' "Alexander III." and
"Survaroff" mount, among them, six
teen 12-inch. 40-caiiber guns, which,
b?ing absolutely new, are good for a
muzzle velocity of 2,600 feet per second.
The Russians use capped projectiles,
and with these the gun is capable of
penetrating 12 inches of Krupp steel at
5,000 yards and 15 inches at 3,000 yards.
If Admiral Togo is to sink these ehips,
or so cripple them as to have them at
his mercy, he will have to fight at a
rang? so near that the Russian ships
cannot fail to place their shells with
considerable effect upon his vessels. In
addition to these battleships there is the
"Osliabia." built in 1900, which carries
four 10-inch guns, capable of penetrat
ing ICH inches of steel at 5,000 yards
and 13 inches at 3,000 yards. All of
these vessels have a trial speed of 18
knots an hour, although, of course, they
are just now much slower because of
foul bottoms The other two battle
ships, "Sissoi Veliky" aDd "Navarin."
mount between them eight 12-inch,
35-calibre guns, capable of penetrating
8£ inches of Krupp steel at 5.000 and 11
inches at 3,000 yards. Their speed is
two knots slower than that of the other
The four Japanese battleships (or five
as the case may be) mount between
them either sixteen or twenty 12-inch
guns of about the same penetrative
power as the Russian pieces. With the
exception of the "Mikasa," however,
they are protected by Harveyized armor
of considerably less resistance than the
Krupp steel on the latest Russian ships.
In battleships the Russian have un
doubtedly a preponderance of power.
It ie to be borne in mind, however,
that Japan possesses eight or seven
(one is repoited to have been lost) very
effective armonred cruisers, any one of
which is more than a match for the two
old armoured cruisers "Nakhimoft" and
"Donskoi" of the Russian fleet. They
mount, between them, thirty-two guns
of 8-inch caliber, and they are protected
by 6to 7 inches of Krupp armour. It
is scarcely likely, however, that these
ships will be placed in the first line of
battle, within ranue of the 13-inch guns
of the Russian fleet; and with the pos
sible exception of the Italian-built
''Kasuga" and "Nisshin," they will
probably be held in reserve until it is
seen how the fight between the battle
ships is going. Should Togo be able to
draw the sting from the Russian battle
ships, and seriously cripple them, his
armoured cruisers would close in to as
sist in delivering the "coup de grace."
The Russian fleet includes several
fine protected cruiserß of between li.ooo
and 6,000 tons displacement, and a few
torpedo boats. If Rojestvensky should
by any chance elude Admiral Togo and
effect a junction with the armoured
cruisers at Vladivostok, his fleet would
be greatlv strengthened, and his chances
of success enhanced; but that is a re
mote possibility.
So much for the material of the fleet
and It must be admitted that, judged
on this basis, the second Pacific
squadron is a menace to Japan's com
mand of the sea, so serious P.S to make
it possible that a victorious peace may
be snatched from her grasp in the very
moment of its attainment. Bat when
we come to consider the other elements
of efficiency, sach as the condition of
the ships, the familiarity of officers and
crews with their vessels, the skill of
the gunners, and the general "morale"
of the whole fleet, it must bt admitted
that the advantages lie very greatly
with Japtfh, The Japanese are very
familiar with the sound and the shock
of battle. The Russians, who doubtless
have been doing much target practice
during their six months' cruise, are ac
customed merely to the discharge of
their own guns -they know nothing of
the awful crash of bursting shell; the
rending of steel plating; the sight of
shattered limbs and all the hideous car
nage of a 'tween decks that is being
swept by tho enemy's fire. It is one
thing to aim at a floating target during
the quiet routine of a cruise, and an
other to aim at a target that is making
the deck upon which one stands a verit
able shambles. Rojestventsky leads
his fleet to what the world, perhaps un
justly, considers to be at best but a for
lorn hope; whereas the Japanese steam
into battle flushed with all the confi
dence and self-posses3iou born of an un
broken succession of victories. Rarely
did two contending fleets fiulit with
such stupendous consequences hauging
upon the result. Should Japan win,
she will reap the fruits of a series of
victories that is without parallel in the
history of the world, and move at a
bound to the front rank as a world
power. Should Rojestvensky, by crush
ing the enemy, obtain command of the
seas, and cut of Oyama and hi." armies
from Japan, he will have wrested vic
tory from defeat, and saved to Ilnt-sia
an empire that has all but fallen from
her grasp.
THE Stete Supreme Court, upon the
application of ex-Gov Stone has grant
ed a preliminary injunction restraining
the Mayor of Pittsbnrg and other city
officials from filing in the common
pleas court of Allegheny connty, a peti

for the purpose of ascertaining the
views of the citizens on a proposition to
consolidate the cities of Pittsburg and
Allegheny. The case will be heard by
the court dnring the week beginning
May 8 next, and a decision may be ex

Military operations in M anc^nr ' a
came to a standstill with the arrival of
the Russian fleets in Eastern waters.
No news has come from the armies, and
they seem to be occupying the same
positions they did a wtvlt^go.
A Russian victory on the water would
be of such vast import to both sidts,
and would so change all the Japanese
plans, that their generals ara undecided
and waiting.
Yesterday the two Russian fleets were
reported to have come together, and to
have taken possesion of a port of the
Chinese island of Hainan, thereby great
ly exciting the Chinese authorities, at-d
the Jap fleet under Togo was reported
at Masampo bay in lower Corea, but
the chances are he is in hiding among
t'ue Pescadores islands.
The Jap government was reported to
be buying steamers of all kinds where
ever they could get them.
TfiE RUSSIAN government has just
issued a new edict regarding the gov
ernment of Manchuria and tbe peninsu
la ; also reorganizing the school system
of Port Arthur, and appointing two po
lice judges for that city. This should
be followed by a program for Kuropat
kin's triumphal entry into Tokio
As there is a governor to be elected
next year the people of Pennsylvania
ought to begin looking around and siz
ing men up with a view to getting tbe
right sort of an executive. He should
be a man of approved and unquestioned
honesty, with the good of the State at
heart: who could be relied upon at all
times to aet from a sense of right. He
should be a man of exalted ideals, with
no suspicion of the political "rooster
about him, who dees not regard the Con
stitution as a joke, and who has no ec
centricities to exhibit and no enemies
to punish. If the people do not take
sufficient interest in this matter to select
the man they want for Governor of the
Commonwealth, they need not be sur
prised or indignant when they learn
that a candidate has been picked out
for them and that they have not been
consulted about the matter. Spirit.
Some awnings stuffed in the hallway
of the old frame building, adjoining the

they indulged in spontaneous combus

Brown's barn, at the corner of W
Penn and Broad streets, was discovered
to be burning yesterday noon, and the
firemen went out there and put it out —
put the fire out.
Winfield township was the scene of
an extensive fire, on Wednesday of last
week. The summer house attached to
the house of Geo. Watson, on the old
Tom Watson farm, took fire from the
bakeoven that afternoon and the flames
spread to the house, which was entirely
consumed, witn all its contents, except
ing the organ. Mrs. Watson was sick
in bed at the time, and was carried to a
neighbor's. The flames then spread to
a straw stack, and from it to the barn,
which burned with all its contents
several tons of hay, 300 bushels of oats,
farming implements, etc. A rail fence,
nearby, then took fire, and the flames
spread to the fields. It is said that the
neighborhood was fighting the fire until
11 o'clock that night. Mr. Watson's
entire loss is several thousand dollars,
and his insurance with the Grangers is

been crucified last week.
The crucifixtion was the result of the
annual Good Friday observations of the

The life of women and uirls who work
is at best a hard one and even under the
most favorable circumstances the results
often show shattered nervous systems
and broken down health. To meet the
conditions required of her, to sustaiu
the extra strain and nervous tension of
duties never intended for her in the plan
iof nature, she must use every endeavor
to preserve the vitality of her nerves
anil the regularity of the female func
tions. No remedy ever offered the world
has accomplished the results obtained
from the use of Dr. A. W. Chase's
NervH Pills. By supplying the nerves
and blood with the elements necessary
to their life and activity, they cans-i a
steady increase of natural strength to
both ihe body and mind, brighten the
eyes, clear the complexion ami instead

will bo one of buoyancy and life. Dr A.
