The greatest band of patriots this
world has ever seen were "kickers.'
The men who pledged "their lives,
x their fortnnes and their sacred honor *
tojstand together in an effort to redress
th««ir grievances were "kickers." They
the leaders of the English colonists
tftwng the Atlantic Coasts, and they
believed "that the emigrants to America
should enjoy the same privileges as if
they had remained, or had been bora,
within the realm." That sentence was
in all their charters; and James Otis, in
his speech in Boston in 1760 asserted
that "Taxation without representation
(in Parliament) is tyranny—a sentence
that became a watchword during the
exciting years that followed.
The "Stamp Act" came in 17G5, and
. delegates from nine of the colonies met
in New York and put np a "kick"
against it and "Sons of Liberty " asso
ciations were organized all through the
colonies. Then came the restrictions
to the trade of the colonies; the quarter
ing of troops in Boston andthe' 'massacre
of March 5, 1770; the destruction of tea
in Boston harbor, (Dec. 16, 1773); the
Boston port and other tyrannical bills;
the first "Continental Congress, " held
in Philadelphia in September 1774; the
"minute men" organizations; the Lex
ington and Concord affairs of April
1775; the assembling of armed men
•ronnd Boston; the battle of Bunker
(or Breeds) Hill in Jane 1775; the
wcond Continental Congress in Phila
delphia and the appointment of George
Washington to the supreme command,
the organization of an army, tbe attack
mi Boston ; and then that great event
which we celebrate «next week, the
signing of the "Declaration of Inde
depence," by the second Continental
Congress in Philadelphia, July 4tb,
1776— from which event dates the birth
of this Nation.
The war for Independence and against
the usurpation of the civil rights of the
colonists, was practically ended at'
Yorktown, Virginia, on Oct. 19, 1781,
by the surrender of Cornwallis; though
the treaty of peace was not signed (at
Paris)-and the British army did not evac
uate New York until Nov. 1782. Then
the American army was disbanded;
Washington resigned his commission,
and the colonies continued for some
years under the "Articles of Confedera
tion," adopted in 1777, But these prov
ing unsatisfactory a constitutional con
vention was called to meet in Philadel
pbia. May 1887. and after a long dis
cn«iion,the delegates adopted the present
Constitution, the following September.

The Senate followed the House, last
Thursday, and declared for a Lock
Canal, and its "cut loose, now, and dig."
The highest lock will be 85 feet above
To a Senator who brought him the
news of the vote President Boosevelt
said that as soon as officially notified he
would issue orders to "cut loose and
dig dirt."
The bill was passed by a majority of
only five votes, the result being 31 to 310
intfavor of the lock canal.
The Senate and House conferees on
the railroad rate bill deadlocked, lost
week, over the pipe line provision.
Senator Tillman and Representative
Richardson, the Democratic members
of the conference committee, would not
consent to the striking out of the pro
vision nor to a change in it which will
parmit pipe lines to carry their own
|§ . products.
Senator Cullom, of Illinois, one of the
Bepublican conferees, stands with Till
man and Richardson on this question.
The House, on Saturday, passed the
conference report on the rate bill by a
vote of 210 to 4.
At Harrisburg, yesterday, the Demo
cratic State Convention nominated
Lewis Emery, Jr., of McKean county,
for Governor; Jeremiah S. Black, of
York county, for Lieutenant Governor;

A dispatch from Philadelphia, to tbe
Pittsburg Dispatch says that city "is to
be the scene of the first great prosecu
tions to be brought by the Government
against the Pennsylvania railroad and
the Standard Oil Company. United
States District Attorney Thompson will
conduct the cases, arrangements for
which will be completed this week at a
conference between Alexanderpimpson,
Jr., and Charles E. Hughes.
The one great question under con
sideration is that of the advisability of
individual prosecutions against A. J.
Cassatt, President of Pennsylvania.
By both the commissioners and special
counsel appointed by the Attorney Gen
eral to follow tbe testimony and prepare
prosecutions it is believed that more
good can be accomplished by centering
the prosecution upon Mr. Cassatt than
by scattering their energies over prose
cutions of the presidents of all railroads
concerned, most of which are directly
or indirectly controlled by the Pcnn
i sylvania.
Although Mr. Simpson and Mr.
Hnghes were the lawyers especially ap
pointed to report upon prosecutions, it
is understood they have the consent of
tbe Government to associate with them
selves other counsel as they see fit and
when the first of the prosecutions is
called William A. Glasgow, Jr.. who
has conducted tbe probing for the Inter-
State Commissioners, will be found
ranked with the prosecution
District Attorney Thompson has been
advised by the Attorney General to pre
pare for the prosecutions of the Penn
sylvania railroad; lawyers are working
night and day making plans for a de
fense from what the revelations already
made show will be the strongest anti
trust attack ever made in American
courts. /
The charge to be made by the Gov
eminent will IKS that of conspiracy. This
is ordinarily a hard charge to prove,
but the lawyers believe that facts have
been brought out in the investigation of
the dealings lietween the railroads, the
Standard Gil Company and certain
| favored coal companies which can be
explained only upon the grounds of a
private understanding.
Moreover, the charge of conspiracy,
if proved, carries with it imprisonment
as punishment, and President Roosevelt
has made it clear to the prosecuting
lawyers that, in his opinion, the public
will have more respect for the sincerity
of a prosecution thus directed than in
one which results only in fines against
the richest corporations in the world."
The Gullugln'r Ca»<\
The Kittanning Times of last week
•'Fifteen minutes after the jury in thi
case of Com. vs James S Gallagher,
charged with embracery by Detective
Baumgardner of the West Penn road,
retired from the court room Tuesday
afternoon for the consideration of the
eviaence, a verdict was reached, but as
court had adjourned with their retire
ment, the verdict was sealed up aud de
livered when the session opened Wed
The court room was about half filled
when the jury Hied in aud when Clerk
Williams read "gentlemen of the jury
liarken to your verdict, that you find
the defendant, Jas. S. Gallagher, guilty
in manner and form as indicted," the
deepest silence prevailed.
The defendant was not present when
the verdict was read", but later in the
morning it was learned from one of his
attorneys that a motion for a new trial
will be made at once. The penalty pro
vided by law for embraoery is a fine not
exceeding SBOO or a term ot imprison
ment not exceeding one year, or either
or both.
All the testimony in the case was in
shortly after i o'clock, Tuesday, and the
jury went ont about an hour later The
attendance at the case was much larger
than usnal and a great deal of interest
was manifested in the proceedings "
Commenting on the Thaw and
Hartje scandals, the Dispatch says:
"Undoubtedly modern social opinion
tends too much in the direction of uiak
ing wealth the measure of success in
life. But do not such things as these
show the hollowness of that standard?
What are riches, luxury, glitter and
prominence compared with integrity,
industry, affection and conscientious
performance of duty ? On which side
is real happiness in this world? Which
furnishes th« most comforting retro
spect for one who uaiint contemplate the
passage from this life to a succeeding
existence? Let this not be understood
as impugning wealth as a clasu. The
rich circles of Pittsburg as a whole
represent good citizenship, domestic
viitne and little assumption on account
of their fortune. Hut such things as
these must bring the lesson home to
every thoughtful mind that great
wealth alone Is the poor, it thing in life,
since it cannot buy any of the things
really worth having.
Thk U. S. Steel Corporation has
has taken alarm at the Universal Graft

slant dismissal, to accept any present,
whether it be for Christmas, a wedding,
a birthday or any other pretext, coming
from any person or corporation doing
business with subsidiary companies of
the corporation or the corporation Itself.

St. were the victims of a runaway, on
the road near Saxonbnrg. last Sunday.
While going down hill the harness
broke and crowded the horse, which
started off at full speed, and a tilt to
one side threw iir. Thorn out upon tbe
road and made him unconscious. The
borse continued to run. and began kick
ing, and Mrs. Tbom dropped the baby
upon a clump of grass and was prepar
ing to jump when horse and buggy

but not seriously injured, and returned
to Butler in another rig.

in Franklin by relatives that James
Higgins had been killed by falling, from
a third-story window of the Hotel Rider
at Cambridge Springs sometime Sunday
night Mr. Higgins, who was 49 years
of age, bad been employed as barber at
the hotel for the past six weeks, and oc
cupied a room on the third floor. It is
believed that, at the time of the acci
dent, he was sitting on the windowsill
taking off his shoes, and that he leaned
back against the screen, which gave
way, precipitating him to the ground.
The screen was found broken through.
James Higgins, son of the late Edward
Higgins, was born in Butler county;
came to Franklin when a young man,
and spent the greater part of his life

his job there.—Spectator.
Miss Martha Nightwine of Grove
City, aged 28 years, died last Saturday,
after more than seven months of intense
suffering, the result of an Resident in
the Montgomery Broom works last fall.
She had been employed in the works
only a few days, and on the evening of
the third of November of last year when
preparing to return home at the close
of the day's work she stepped into an
elevator shaft in one of t lie bnildings,
not knowing that some of the employs
were running the (-levator up and down
the shaft in way of amusement. Just
as she entered tin- '•.haft the desceiuii"*-

floor beneath it. When she was remoy 1
ed and an examination of h>-r injuries |
made it was found that her backbone
had been dislocated, one rib broken and
one long crushed, l>esides numerous
other injuries of a less serious nature
inflicted. At the time it was thought
nhe could not survive for more than a
day or two, but the work of the destroy
ing angel was not completed until Sat
urday, when death came as a welcome
relief from the sufferings which it was
realized could be abated only by this
usually unwelcome guest. —Reporter.

Ha imo a u favoritism reaches to all
sections and to all interests. In the
Senate, Monday, Senator La Follette's
resolution to have grain added to coal

certain railroad companies and owners

Enough steel rails have been ordered
by the railroads of this country to build

enough to girdle to girdle the globe and
have enough left for sidetracks and

place the number of tons of steel rails
for delivery in 1906 at :j.800,000. The
