To the Republican Electors of Pennsylvania:
After consultation anil correspondence with
the members of the Republican State Committee,
and by their direction, I hereby give notice that
the Republican of Pennsylvania, by their duly
chosen representatives, villi meet in Stale Con
'' vention at Ilarritburg, Wednesday, August 19,
1891, at 10 o'clock A. 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-al-Large
to the Constitutional Convention pro
vided for in the Act of Assembly approval June
10, 1891, and for the transaction of such other
b uslncss as may be presented,
Noliceis especially directed tolhefact thai, in
word'ince with the provisions of the last men
tioned act, each Senatorial district is entitled to
a repreientatlon of three delegates in said Con
stitutional Convention, two of whom only canbe
tnembrrs of the majority party in said district.
The electors of each district are therefore re
quested to make proper nomlntUions for dele

In this connection the Cialrman desires to call
the attention of Republican voters to the recom

" they allow the greatest freedom in the general
participation in the primaries consistent with
the preservation of the party organisation."

THE "POST" AND PENSIONS.
- 7 Tho Evening Post complains bitter
tly because the pension roll If) lucreas
ing at ft rate which will carry the
number of names on It "up to about
000,000, or more than four times the
tiital as far back ns 1878," and asks
where Is thlB thing to stop?" It
ought not to stop until every old sol
dier who is entitled to a pension gels
It. Does the Post dispute that propo
sition ? Does it advise the Democratic
party, of which it Is an ally, to stop it
short of that point? Does it advo
cate the repeal of the, present pension
Jaws? Does it advice tho next House
of Representatives, which is Demo
cratic, to refuso appropriations for the
payment of pensions? This ia a fea
ture of Democratic policy, in which
about 1,400,000 old soldiers in the Nor
thern states are deeply interested,
and as to which they want a definite
avowal of the Democratic-Mugwump
Intentions. Perhaps the Post will
lye It to them and then, again, per-
aps it will not. JV. Y, Press,

tho company that has tbo placo in hand.
Tho Pottsvillo Republican describes tho
place as follows : "Lakeside, with its beau5

tbo midst of a wido and stretching grovo
entirely separated from tho busy world
without. Notwithstanding its roughness
of surfaco and goneral storillty, the anthra

as a place for rosldenco and pleasure. Its
elevation above the sea levol secures pure
air and a healthy climate, while tho mag'
niflcent scenery with which it abounds is
unsurpassed by anything in tho country,
Much labor las been oxpondod to add tn

Tho popularity of Lakeside as a resort in
tho day time has been established. On

and thero was not one who did not speak of
the placet with enthusiasm.
A few days ago it was decided to test

The first thing tbo visitors turnei their
attention to was tho immense dancing
pavilion. Tho structure, in tho language
of somo of the ladies, was "nerfeollv
grand." Then tbolr attention was turned
to the lakes.
Stand upon any of tho knolls surround
ing the lakes at Lakesido on a moonlight
night and watch tho reflection of tho
moonbeams upon tho crystal surfaco as tho
tiny crafte with the marry voyagers ply to
and frj. Just try it some time. Tbo
artist's brush has never pictured naturo as

Half an hour on the water was followed
