An indian scalping knife was found
in a tree in Clearfield county, a few

20 feet from the ground, and as the
tree counted 17L rings from the point

dicate that the blade had been in the
same position for almost two cen
turies. The stamp on the side of
the knife consists of the representa

was no doubt imported from England
in the early days of the colonies and
was probably traded to the Indians.

An old time newspaper man saj's:
No sensible man should or ever does
get angry because a newspaper man
duns him for money. A dun is not
au impeachment of a subscriber's
integrity, but is simply an outcrop*!
ping of a public necessities. For
instance, a thousand men owe a man
from ouc to ten dollars; ho has to
dun them in order to pay his ex
penses. Instead of getting angry
and stepping his paper because the
publisher asks what is due, the sub
scriber should thank the editor for
waiting so patiently, and pay up
like a man.

Washington, March 23.—Reports
received here indicate that a bitter
fight is on for the Republican State
chairmanship In Pennsylvania. It
is war to the knife l>ctwecn two of
Senator Quay's trusted lieutenants,
namely State Senator Andrews and
Executive Chairman Frank Willing
Leach. Mr. Leach has enlored the
contest, ovidently asking favors from
no one, Senator Quny himself includ
ed. This much is gleaned from a
letter which is one of the many that
he has been sending to editors of
Republican papers throughout Penn
One particular letter, which is
marked "confidential," and which is
addressed to the editor of a Republi
can weekly in the western part of
the Stale, has found its way to this
city. From its wording it appears
to be the counterpart of others writ
ten tor the same purpose. This
letter is written by Mr. Leach on
State Committee paper, and is
accompanied by a printod pamphlet
bearing his picture and numerous
quotations from State newspapers
endorsing tbe work he has hitherto
done for the State Committee, as
recommendations for his election as
chairman. The letter reads as fol
AN APPEAL FOR HELP.
Philadelphia, Pa., March 19, 'flfi.
Mv Dear Sir:—You have probably
noticed the announcement of my
candidacy for State Chairman. Ex ■
Chairman Andrews is also a candi
date, I am satisfied your paper
does not favor the election of Mr.
Andrews, Whoever is chosen will
naturally be friendly to Senator
Quay, llut it has occurred to me
that you might conclude to say a
favorable ward in behalf of my can
didacy as against, that of my oppon
ent. You will notice, by the way,
his friends claim support from Wash
ington. Concerning this, I can only
saj that T am ft candidate upon my own
responsibility unj will not accept
the chairmanship unless it is the de
sire of tlio party leaders and workers
throughout the Statu that I should
bo placed at the head of the party
organization. It is to them that I
j propose to make an appeal, I have
J always had, ns a rule, the active
support ot the interior papers (see
the inclosurc) without which no man
can succeed in Pennsylvania. 1 will
be grateful for any friendly word
editorially which your paper might
say in my behalf.
Yours, very truly,

QTflpQ flirt nnwnMrtf r ,. -
tliis letter, In the shape of an editori-J
al from a Philadelphia evening paper j
which is particularly bitter against I
Senator Andrews, and protest in the
name of all political decency against
his selection ts State Chairman. The
fact that Mr. should select
this cdltoiialas cmboding his argu
ments in favor of bis own election is
taken as an indication of the bitter
contest in which these two gentlo*
inrn are engaged. The editorial at
tracted considerable attention at the
time it was published, and some ot
the sentences and accusations are
particularly interesting when used
by one Quay lieutenant against the
interests of another Quay lieutenant
Here is one of the extracts:-
'•The one tiling upon which there
should be practical unanimity is as
to tho uuworthinesß and unfitness of
Senator Andrews, of Crawford Co.,
as the responsible director of the
coining campaign in this state,"
A PLEAS \NT PARAGRAPH.
Further along occurs this very
pleasant paragraph, which must
have the Indorsement of Mr. Leach,
since ho U6es the editorial as his
campaign document. It reads;—:
''lt (the Republican party) would
cut a rediculous figure making em
phatic declarations In favor of'rtcceut
polities, reform and good govern
ment, and then calling a man like
Senator Andrews to the front to
direct the battle, to handle all the
resources which will be at the dis
posal of the State Committee, and
which in that, case would, without
doubt, be selfishly used to promote
Again the editorial says, in regard
to his management of tile campaign
of 1890: "Dclamaterism and all that
it implies, and Andrcwsism, it was
soon discovered, were interconverti
ble terms, and tho peoplo again turn
down the Republican party. But
Mr. Andrews was placed at the
head of the Philadelphia Senatorial
Investigating Coinmitteo and the
result has been precisely what might
have been oxpoeted. Tho whole
affair has dogenerated into a miser
able and disgraceful factional scheme
which has disgusted every friend of
municipal reform. Andrcwsism was
again illustrated all the way through.
This supplemental performance on
the part of the Crawford Senator
should put a period to his public
career. It should make his alleged
candidacy for the State Chairman
ship this most important year an
The editorial abounds in such ref
erences to Mr. Andrews, while the
pamphlet gotten out by Mr. Leach
is Just as laudatory of tho latter's
ability and Qtness for the plaoe as
the editorial is denunciatory of the

If one tenth part of the statement*
contained in the Press of Tuesday
in relation to the attempted set
tlement of the difference between
Senator Quay and the Pittsburg
Republicans is true, it places all
partie3 to the transaction in anything
but an enviable light. When two or
three parties pretend to have the
power to barter away the patronage
of a city like Pittsburg, it is abont
time some one called a halt. In so
far as these agreements were pro
posed or accepted have the parties
concerned brought reproach upon
the fair name of tbe Republican
party T We prefer to believe that
some denial or explanation will be
made in the near future by which
Senator Quay's skirts will be cleared
from any connection with what
appears to be an attempt to enter
into a disgraceful conspiracy to dis
pose of the offices in Pittsburg with
out as much as saying "by your
leave," to the voters of that enter

The New York World editorially

Ist. He is the only candidate rep

mentioned for the candidacy is links

sentiment or a national measure.
3d. He is a western man and has
behind him the enormous sectional
pressure of western sentiment, with
out which no Republican has ever
been elected president. 4th. The
' opposing candidates have s-uo of
them any strength outside of their
