W. M. CHENEY Editor
The President has positively anil
finally refused to take any part in
the fictional quarrel of the republican
party of Virginia. He has been
visited by strong delegations from
both eides as well as by a number
of prominent individuals. To all he
has given the same answer; f 'As
President of the United States, 1
do Dot feel authorized to interfere in
politic.'! quarrels in any State.
Wherever there is a divided party
my only feeling is indifference ting
ed with disgust, and I must decline
to accept any responsibility for the
sufferings caused by lack of harmony.
"The President is generally com
mended for the position he has taken
in this matter, allthougli of course
the Virginia people think it wrong.
The President has also denounced
as false the re)>ort that he has in~
structed Assistant Postmaster Clark
sen to appoint no Virginia post
masters without the endorsement of
Gen. Mahone.
The Republican State Convention
will take place at Harrisburg, on
August 7th.

The majorities "for"and "against"

Uncle Sam to Take A Hand,
The Government is about to take
cognizance on its own behalf of the
illegal liquor traffic in this State.
The enforcement of the Brsoks law,
under which the business has been
remarkably restricted, has tempted
hundreds of men, man.y of them ex
eatoon keepers, to engage in the
sale of liquor irrespective of State,
laws or license. This evil has grown I
to such proportions in Allegheny
eonnty that it is estimated that, no
less than 400 such resorts flourish in
Pittsburg alone.
During the past week Revenue
Collector Warmcastle, of the Twenty
third District, has received instruc
tions form Washington, directing
him to arrest and prosecute every
person discovered manufacturing or
selling liquor who has failed to com
ply with the revenue laws by taking
out a Government license. This
action is directed solely against the
proprietors of resorts who regard
neither Nation nor State laws.
Though the national Government
takes no cognizance of state license
laws, yet an unlawful dealer who
may desire to secure a Government
license for his own protection against
the dreaded processes of a United
States court would almost inevitably
disclose his object and identity to
alert local authorities.
The supplemental statement that
Government detectives will be em
ployed to unearth violators of the
revenue laws indicated there is
a very interesting and costly time
ahead for such a? persist in violating
both the laws of the State and the)
United States. j

A PMity Marriage Solemnized at
Umestone Thursday,
I From the Era.
I A perfect day In the crowning
month of the year, unclouded skies
and bright sunshine greeted one of
the faiiest of June brides. On Thurs
day the nuptials of Miss M. Agnes

Cloud, of Custer City, were celebrat
ed. Surrrounded by loving friends
and relatives, with hearty congratu
lations and good wishes the young
couple entered upon their wedded
life under most favorable auspices.
The ceremony was performed in
the Methodist ehurch at Limestone.
A. graceful act of the ladies of
Limestone, headed by Mrs. Dr. Bis
sell, was the decorating of the church
and surprising the bride and her
family by this thoughtful attention.
An arch of ferns and daises, with a
floral bell banging in the centre, was
a very pretty design. A coach full
of guests from Custer and Bradford
arrived on the Erie train. They
at once proceeded to the church.
The ushers were Charles Lockhnrt
and David Cloud, of Custer, and
Fred Schooninaker, of Limestone.
Promptly at one o'clock Rev. D. C.
Nye walked down the aisle. The
Jeweti sisters, Alisses Blanche and
(jrace, played a march from Men
delssohn with artistic ability and tlic
bridal party entered. Four maids
of honor preceded the bridal pro
cession, Misses Grace Francis, May
Chesney, Edith Strickles and Sadie
Supples. The youthful maidens
were dressed alike in white surah
silk. J'Le bridesmaids were sisters
of the bride, Misses Trinaand Lottie
Degen, and their attendants were
John Degen, brother of the bride,
and Carlton Cloud brother of the
grooiu. The groom escorted the
mother of the bride and the bride
leaning on the arm of her father
completed the wedding procession.
The marriage services was the im
pressive ritual of the ring services.
The bride and groom plighted their
troth iu clear, distinct tones, audi
ble to every one. After the cere
mony the bridal party proceeded
to the home of the bride's parents,
Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Degen, where
a reception was given.
