President Schwab, of the United States Steel

said: "lie energetic. Make mistakes if you must,

The folly of early primaries in Snyder county
wis demonstrated last week at Harrisburg again.
Fully eighty per cent of the republican voters of j
Snyder county were for Klkin. The delegate
was elected four months ago when no one knew
who would be candidates for Governor or what
issues would arise for the state convention.
The sentiment of the people counted for noth
ing and the delegate voted for Peunypacker. We
leave no criticism to make concerning Judge
Pennypacker as he is iu every day entitled to
the support of every it publican voter in the State.
Tho point we wish to make is to show the Stand
ing Committee the folly of early primaries.
Klkin and Watres certainly got gold bricks
for their financial deluge on the heads of the few
iu Snyder county. Later quotations seem to in-
dicats a bull market.

The rights of boroughs to collect from tele
graph companies license fees for the maintenance
of telegraph poles and wires was finally decided
by the supreme court in affirming the judgement
of the superior court. The suits were bought by
the loroiigh of Taylor, in the common pleas court of
Lackawanna county, and the borough of New Hope,
in the pleas common courtof liuckscounty, respec
tively, against the postal Telegraph Cable com
pany, to recover the license fees under ordinances
passed in each borough. The telegraph company
contended that the ordinances were invalid, as
they interfered with interstate commerce, and the

Illinois has two nicknames. It was
early called "Prairie State," from the
character of its land, which in most
quurterg is a rolling prairie. It was
nicknamed the "Sucker State," from
the fact that early travelers on the,
prairie often suffered great straits
for lack of water. They soon learned
from the Indians how to satisfy their
thirst, for proceeding to a low place inj
the prairie, they would search for
crawfish holes, into which they insert
ed a long straw, and sucked up the wa
ter beneath. Such, at least. Is the story
told and explanation given of the nickname.
