A Corner In Angels.
If we vote in favor of becoming a
city of the third class we may have
some trouble in finding "male angels
willing to serve as Select and Common
conncilmen. Listen to this from the
Act of 1889, regarding councilmen of
cities of the third class—
A member of councils who shall so
licit. demand or receive, or consent, to
receive, directlv or indirectly, for him
self. or for another, from any company,
corporation or person, any money,
office, appointment, employment, testi
monial, reward, thing of value or en
joyment, or of personal advantage, or
promise thereof, for his vote or official
influence, or for withholding the same,
or with an understanding, expressed or
implied, that his vote or official action
shall be in any way influenced thereby,
or who shall solicit or demand any such
money, or other advantage, matter or
thing aforesaid for another, as the con
sideration of his vote or official influence
or for withholding the same, or shall
give or withhold his vote or influence,
in consideration of the payment or
promise of such money, advantage, mat- ]
ter or thing to another, shall be held
guilty of bribery, and upon conviction
thereof, shall be punished by a fine not
exceeding ten thousand dollars, and by
separate and solitary confinement at
labor for a period not exceeding five
yean, and shall be forever incapable of
holding any place of profit or trust in
Other sections provide penalties for
having a personal interest in pending
bills, for using public property for pri

contractors, agents or other officers and

SECRETARY BONAPARTE of the Navy
Department in his speech at Annapolis
to the Bankers Association used this
significant language: "The kicker is the
only means by which an American party
la sept in order. Unless the men who
control the policies of parties know
tbat if they insnlt the intelligence and
'Sense of honesty of the masses of the
people too much the kicker will rise up
and cast them out of power, they will
treat resolutions and remonstrances
merely as "big words which break no
bones.' Nor is the kicker necessarily
outside of a party. The best devotion
to party is shown bv the man who will
refuse to follow it away from the beaten
path of right. In the last campaign I
was frequently asked if I were a Repub
lican or an Independent, and I had no
besitency in answering that I was
The influx of Senators and Represent
atives at Washington, las week, result
ed in the unfolding of a variety of
opinions on subjects that will come be
fore congress at the coming session. The
entire country was represented at the
White house by callers, and as a rule
tbey were willing to go on record on
the leading topics of the day. So far as
railway rate legislation is concerned,
the callers seemed to be a unit in the
prediction that the House would rally
to the support of the President and pass
a measure that would meet with his ap
proval. But this was as far as they
woaldgo with their favorable predic
tions. On the other hand, the majority
of the statesmen believed that the House*
measure would be sidetracked in the
Senate, and a substitute for it returned
to the house, and that the substitute
wonld be not at all pleasing to the
President. Many of the callers were of
the opinion that a deadlock would ensue
between the two houses and that the
first session wonld adjourn with the
matter high up in the air. But there
were a few hopeful ones who argued
tbat the deadlock between the two
Houses would be amicably settled in a
conference committee and tbat the re
mit would be a compromise measure
tbat wonld be satisfactory as the initial
step in such legislation. While it might
be only a half loaf they believed it
wonld be accepted by the President as
being better than no bread.

The political fate of United States
Senator Boies Penrose is at stake.

Philadelphia and the Indej>endents cap
tare the important offices of the Sheriff
and the Connty Commissioners, it will
be all up with the "Gang." Durham
came into power in 1896 bv capturing
the Sheriff e office only.
With the ''Organization" down and
out in Philadelphia, Penrose will be done
for in the State. A United States Sen
ator is in position to demand some
measure of political recognition through
sheer force of position, but a Senator
who lacks the support of his own city
for re-election is not likely to be per
mitted to make "slates" for the party
conventions and dictate the course of
The political life of Senator Penrose,
therefore, mdy be said to be hanging in
the balance at the coming November
election in Philadelphia. And the poli
tical life of Senator Penrose is of vastly
more importance to State Chairman
Andrews than the State Treasury and
all the other offices on Capitol Hill.
The lack of an expensive ''spellbind
ing" tour for Candidate Plummer and
the failure of numerous county leaders
to "get a rise" out of the State commit
tee in the matter of cash aid for local
campaign is explained
Every available dollar is being dump
ed into Philadelphia. The leaders are
insisting that Plummer is entirely safe,
but they are dreadfully anxious about
the outcome in the city of Penrose.
And their fear is justified by conditions

There are 339,000 voters in Phila
delphia and after the sale of 75,000 tax
receipts last Saturday, it was estimated
that ninety per cent.of them had quali

Senator Foraker of Ohio, who had
agreed to speak in Philadelphia, on
national issues, next week, has sent the
following note to Chairman Andrews
*1 am satisfied from reports I am re
ceiving from Philadelphia, that if I go
there to speak at this time it will be in
terpreted as having direct reference to
your local troubles and differences, with
which I cannot with" propriety have
anything to do, instead of national
policies, about which and in behalf of
yonr State ticket alone I was invited to
speak. While I think this is unreason
able and while I dislike exceedingly to
recall nn appointment that has been an
nounced, yet I am unwilling to be pot
in such attitude and therefore cancel
my engagement for the 18th."
Senator Foraker of Ohio is recognized
as the leader of the opposition to the
President's railroad policy. He is
stumping Ohio at present, and Secre
tary Taft intends setting down upon
Say! Can you make beads or tails out

efforts to get Republicans of National
reputation from other States to speak in
Philadelphia, but have met with failure.

Following on this the President is said
to have taken a decided stand against
the giving of any assistance to the band
of "corruptionists who have been mas
querading as Republicans." It is re
ported that he was partially moved to
assume this attitude by the statement
that Senator Foraker bad agreed to
speak in Philadelphia. The Ohio sen
ator has assumed the role of lead*" of
the forces opposed to Roosevelt's policy
of railroad rate regulation. Naturally
be would find congenial company with
the machine leaders of Pennsylvania
who caused the reconsideration and
tabling of the resolution indorsing that
policy which had passed the House of
Representatives. But even Senator
Foraker is said to have stipulated tbat
his speech should be confined to Nation
al questions only and he has since de
clined to speak there at all.

the Leader The present station has
long since outgrown its usefulness and

The Coroner's jury in the case of
young Emanuel Shaffer, who was acci
dently killed on Wednesday of last
week by a shot from the gun of Frank
Edwards returned a verdict of acciden
At the hearing young Edwards stated
that he was 15 years old; that he and
Emanuel were walking side by side, he
heing on the right side of his compan
ion. both were carrying their guns
| cocked, the muzzles resting in the
crooks of their arms. That in some
way that he could not understand his
gun went off and Shaffer, giving a loud
cry, fell to the ground. As soon as
Shaffer fell I ran up to a house we had
just passed and asked a man Isaw there
to come down quick tbat Shaffer was
shot. The man came with me and we
carried Shaffer to the house. Then I
started for Butler and went to Shaffer's
house and told his father: we got a bug
gy and went out to the house anil found
that he was dead Then I came to
Butler with Mr. Shaffer and went to
the coroner's office and gave myself up.
