2b the Republican Electors of Pennsylvania;
After consultation ami correspondence with
'the members of the Republican State Committee,
and by their direction, I hereby give notice that
the Republicans of Pennsylvania, by their duly
chosen representatives, wttl meet in State Con
ventlon at Ilarrisburg, Wednesday, August 19,
1891, at lOo'ctockA.M., for the purpose of plac
ing in nomination candidates for the offices of
Slate Treasurer and Auditor General, for the
nomination of eighteen candidates for Delegates-at-Large
to the Constitutional Convention pro
vided for in the Act of Assembly approved June
19, 1891, and for the transaction of such other
bustness as may be presented,
Notice is especially directed to the fact that, in
accordance with the provisions of the last men
tioned act, eat h Senatorial district is entitled to
a representation of three delegates in said Con
stitutional Oonvenllon, two of whom only canbe
members of the majority party in said district.
The electors of each district are therefore re
quested to make proper nominations for dele
gates to said convention, the rules governing the
nomination of candidates for S ate Senator to
In this connection the Clmtrman desires to call
the attention of Republican voters to the recom
mendation of the State Convention of 1S82, that
"they allow the greatest freedom in the general
participation in the primaries consistent with
the preservation of the party organitation,"
1VM. H. ANDREWS, Chairman.
THE POLITICAL "REFORMER."
As a sample of the mnd-dog poli
tics of certalu so-called Republican ed
itors wo call attention to the appeals In
sucb journals as the Doylestown Intel
ligencer for Republican harmony which
according to Tho Intelligencer, should
be signalized by politically killing
Quay and supplementing that act by
kicking to the rear all of his friends.
The query therefore urlses how much
would there be left of the Republican
party to do business with after the kill
lug and Kicking bee was at an end?
AVhydon't these poor Idiotic reformers
stop to consider that harmony is not pro
duced with bull whips or by insulting
those who, to say tho least, are just as
honeat, just as sincere and just as
419 much entitled to vote their convict
Ions as the sweetest smelling "reform
er?" And how In the world can tho
"reformer" hope bo score victory
against a united Democraoy by need
lessly antagonizing tens of thousands
of men, all of whom are needed to in
sure tho safety of the ticket, unless it
is conceded that the cudgeled, car
tooned and "flayed" victims of his
wrath are so much better Republicans

than himself that they will submit to
every indignity, bo branded with all
sorts of obnoxious names, and yet
march loyally to the polls not only to
vote for the ticket, but to labor en
thusiastically for Its success?
Tho facts aro tho "reformer" is a
squealer. He is not any better than
his neighbor; possesses no greater
rights; Is made of no better or cleaner
clay, but ho is a natural born whlncr
and when ho cannot do all the bossing
ho refuses to play, turns his back upon
his fellows and trudges homo bellow
ing like a calf over the "mean boys"
who refused to acknowledge hlssuperl
or (?) authority. Ho is not satisfied with
a division of honors; he must have the
whole hog or nothing regardless of the
rights or wishes of others. To be ex
plicit. The regulars, the men who re
spect the wishes of the majority, are
not gunning for mugwumps nor are
thoy preparing spits to roast the chaps
who deserted last fall and made a Dem
ocratic governor possible. They
recognize the fact that there was a fool
ish division, but as there Is nothing to
be gained by discussing that point
they are willing to forget and forgive
and to hold the gate open for all to re
turn to their father's household. But
strange to relate tho deserters want to
drive out the regulars; in short, they
refuse to condone the loyalty of the
men who steadfastly stood by tho
ticket and herein is tho ridiculousness
of the whole situation. However "re
formers" who vote the Democratic
ticket are not the Republican
party of Pennsylvania and it is highly
probable tho Republican party will
not throwup Its hands at thecommaud
of any such crowd now or hereafter.
The Republican party wants peace
and good will all around the board,
and we submit the question: "Isn't it
about time the mugwump laid asldo
his bull-whip and began practicing"
that which hesogllbly preaches good
will toward his neighbor, and' har
mony, and decenoy, aud lustlce, and
respectful consideration of tho rights,
privileges and feelings of his fellow
men? In short, hasn't there been
enough name calling and isn't it about
time to come together for an old fash
ioned love-feast to basupplemented by
an old fashioned Republican victory
in November? Tribune-Republican.

Also tho rost of tho walls. The stono wall is
a very poor pioco of work in every respect.
Wo find uo headers whatever in the wall
and do not consider It sufficient to carry
tho walls resting theron. The brickwork
is a very good piece of work. Tho poor
