A Republican paper in Cincinnati re
marks that the party does not want a

size of the Cox dose, the suggestion
All talk of a contest for the office of
Sheriff of Butler county has subsided.
The decisions of our Supreme court as
to the marking of tickets are against
it, and besides this the costs, which
might run up into the thousands, would
follow the verdict.
•Among the visitore to Harrisburg last
week on legal business was Charles W.
Stone, of Warren, former State senator,
lieutenant governor, secretary of the
Commonwealth and congressman. Mr.
Stone was not grieving oyer the recent
defeat of the gangsters. It was the
Andrews gang that eliminated him
from politics in his congressional dis
trict, simply because he would not do
the bidding of the late Senator Quay
To humiliate him, Sibley, a Democrat,
was put op and then every Quay-
Andrews Republican in the district was
ordered to vote against him. As a re
sult Stone was defeatsd, and retired
from politics. He says it is a good
•thing for the party to get a shaking up
once in a while, as it takes some of the
conceit out of the men who think it
could not exist unless they are leading
The evidence of Senator Piatt of N.

The testimony that he had Teceived
fIO,OOO per year as "campaign contri
butions," involving an understanding
that this was to prevent legislation dis
agreeable to the big insurance man
agers, is so entirely in accord with what
has gone before as to be almost com
monplace. But the assertion that while
this commenced not less than ten years
ago, he cannot be certain exactly how
long, because he has "no records, is
worth considering as starting a new
line of thought If a record was kept
of the money spent for a certain
candidate in this county, this year, its
publication would make interesting
Announcement is made that the Quay

It is not entirely impossible that

Tbe Republican caucus of members
of the next House of Representatives
will be held on Saturday evening. Dec.
2, and promises to be of short duration
and harmonious action. Joseph G.
Cannon, of Illinois, will be nominated
by acclamation as the Republican can
didate for Speaker, and his election will
be confirmed when the House assembles
on Monday. December 4.
Besides the unanimous nomination of
Mr. Cannon, the leaders says that the
officials cf the last House will be nomin
ated again by the caucus and re-elect
ed. The officers are: Clerk. Alexander
McDowell, of Sharon, Pa : sergeant at
arms, nenry Casson; doorkeeper, F. B
Lvon: postmaster, Joseph C McElrov;
chaplain. Rev. Henry N. Condon. It is
also said that tbe new officers will make
no changes in the minor officers under
them, and therefore very few if any
changes will occur in the officials of the
The alleged election frauds in this
country are a source of wonder to the
Germans, and the comments of their
press on the corruption and bribery of
our elections will probably do more
than all the efforts of tbe government
to keep German subjects from emigrat
ing to America.
Similar outrages perpetrated upon
the voters of Berlin or any other great
German city would have created a revo
lution, and charges of cheating in the
coant of votes have never been made
against any party there even during the
most bitterly fought contests between
Socialists and Conservatives.
That anybody could be so degraded
to sell his vote is also considered most
remarkable, and the concensus of opin
ion is that the people of America have
exactly the government they deserve as
long as they have the remedy in
their own hands.
The arguments used in the United
States against municipal ownership ap
pear most ridiculous to the German
mind because of the success of the same
principles in many cities there. ' 'Things
are called anarchism in the great re
public on the other side of the Atlantic,'
says a Berlin paper, commenting in the
in the arguments used by the antagonists
of municipal ownership dnring the
campaign in New York, "which the
most conservative people here consider
perfectly proper, and it would be quite
interesting to know what Americans
would think of the plan which is being
seriously considered by representatives
of many German cities of giving sub
urbanites free transportation to and
from their work and business on mu
nicipally owned street cars to encourage
the building of homes and abolish tene
mente. "Undoubtedly this must be
ranked as anarchy, and the kaiser, who
heartily approves of it. would, in the
United States, be denounced as an arch
conspirator of the public welfare.
"In a great many respects we are
better off under our municipal govern
ment than the people of the United
States in their much praised republic,
which is developing into an earthly
paradise for the privileged few and a
perfect hell for the working masses.

the Pittsburg Dispatch, Mr. Hays, one
of our Assemblymen, wrote—
To the Editor of The Dispatch:
Yours of the ICth to hand making in
quiry in regard to my opinion as to the
matter of the principal subjects of tbe
Governor's proclamation. First —When
the people of Pittsburg and Allegbeny
agree on some plan to unite I am with
them. Second—l favor a higher rate of
interest for the use of the State money,
and limit the amount of money placed
in banks or depositories to 10 or 15 per
cent of tbe capital stock of the banks;
payment of all the State debt, and pay
ment of the appropriations due the
schools, hospitals and all the charitable
institutions promptly when due. Let'
the Treasurer take the same securities
that any good business man would when

by fine or imprisonment. I will vote

Eigbteen-thousand barrels of old
rye whisky went up in blue flame at
Broadford, Fayette county, near Con
nellsville, last' Sunday afternoon. One
of the bonded warehouses of the Over
holt distillery took fire and burned,
with all its contents. The A. Overholt
Co. is one of the largest manufacturers
of whisky in the world. The plant is
practically owned by H. C. Fr'ck and
the Mellons of Pittsburg. It was es
tablished by A. Overholt in 1810. It
was burued in 1884 and was rebuilt on
a much larger scale. The burned build
ing was one of fonr ware-honses con
taining 18,000 barrels of whisky eight
years old. The fire presented a firilliant
picture that night, tbe flashes of flame
lighting the country for miles around.
