J After consultation and correspondence with
'' the members of the Republican State Committee,
and by their direction, I hereby give notice that
the Republicans of l'ennsytvania, by their duly
chosen representatives, will meet in mate Con
vention at llarrisburg, Wednesday, August 19,
1891, at 10 o'clock A, if,, for the purpose ofplac
ing in nomination candidates for the offices of
State Treisurer 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 otlier
business as may be presented,
Police is especially directed to the fact that, in
accordance with the provisions of the last men
tioned act, each Senatorial district is entitled to
a representation of three delegates in said Con
stitutional Convention, two of whom only can be
members of the majority parly 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 Chairman desires to call
the attention of Republican voters, to the recom
mendation of the State Convention of 1832, that
"they allow the greatest freedom in the general
participation in the primaries consistent with
the preservation of the party organization,"
WM, IT. ANDREWS, Chairman.
1876 the Republicans cnrrl-id four
counties In Maryland; in 18S9 tuey car
ried eight; In 1884 they carried nine; In
18SS they carried twelve. This shows
their progress towards victory. In
1892 they should carry the state.
It is announced that ex-I'resldent
Cleveland will make six speeches in
the Ohio campaign. The Baltimore
American thinks that If he does, it
will be worth the price of u circus tick
et to see bim walk arouud that free
silver plank In the Deinocratio plat
form. It begins to look as though ' in this
age of progress wo are likoly to have
the laws of nature reversed, and the
rains, the heat and the co'.d regulated
by human devices. Tho government
has sent au agent to Texas for lie pur
pose of ascertaining the possibility of
having rainfall at command, and now
ponies another project from Knusaa
City, by which the temperature of our
houses can be regulated from 70 to
zero. It may be that these Inventions
may prove successful, and that the
wisdom of the creator may be thought
to be unwisdom. We may have rain

finite minds may bo deemed needful,
and wo may succeed In lnving the
temperature of our houses under such
thorough control that wo can have

that the proposed regulations ofllie

It has been generally supposed that
the Hebrew associations of Now York
organized for the purpose of affording
assistance to Russlivu emigrants ex
patriated from their homos by the
Czar would he able to meet most of

seems that they are already encounter

the aid of tue Hirsch fund prevents
them from carrying out thelrgeuerous
purpose. With the usual liberality

believe that before this gie.it problem

who have been so suddenly thrown

THE W. O. T. TJ.
What a Member of the Local Or
ganization Has to Say.
Mr. Editor: Having read tho articlo
In this evening's Issue of your papor, in re
gard tojjio W. C. T. IT., tho thought camo
to mo, that if those persons, who condomn
tho work of the W. O. T. U., know moro
about tho work that has and is being bc
complished, they would not be so severe in
thoir criticisms. Our timo, enerelos and
money are not spent alone in trying to re
form thoso whq aro tho slaves of strong
drink, but our work, Stato and National, is
divided Into thirty-throe departments with
an active and efficient superintendent in
charge of each. No ono Local adopts ail
thoso, but each selects those departments
which thoy think best adopted to tho local
ity in which tho Union exists. Thoso de
partments come undor six different head?,
namely: Organization, Preventative, Edu
cational, Evangolistic, Social and Legal,
It Is very evident that our organization is
sot lookod upon in othor places with the
disfavor it is in this rum-cursod county, or
it nevor would havo roached tho vast num
bers it has in the sixteen years of its exist
ence, thoro boing in the United Statos
membership of 113,971. In Pennsylvania
wo have n membership of over 15,000. Nor
Is our work confined to this side of the
water, as will be seen from tho following
takon from tho roport of our missionary,
Mary O. Lcavitt, who has encircled tho
globe with tho white ribbon,
"In her oight years' absenco sho held
ovor 1,000 meetings in China, Japan, In
dia, Northern and Southern Egypt,Au8lra
lia and tho Hawaiian Islands, talking in 17
different languages. To do this sho em
ployed 231 interpreters.!'
Sbo not only organized unions in these
places, but a'to introduced scientific tem
perance instruction in tho schools and
secured the regular study of temporance
literaturosuoli as recent laws havo Intro
duced into the curriculum of tbe public
schools in our own state.
At a convention of teachora, held In
Copenhagen at which was gathered all the
leading teachers of Scandinavia, Mrs.
Lcavitt was one of the principal speakers.
Tbe outoomo of her address being the tub
sequent passago of laws compulsory in tho
schools throughout Scandinavia, including
Denmark, owoden, 1' inland und Norway.
Tbero is no way Ip which humanity can
bo benefitted but what there Is a depart
ment roaching out to holp along. Wero
one to try to do horo for orring girls und
Mien women what has been done in
Wilkes- Barro and other places, wo would
bo dubbed busybodios and rcqueslod to
stay at home and koop our houses clean, as
wo wore lu former times wbon efforts wore
niado to protest our boys and girls from
temptation and a lowering of their morals,
for when the sacred n ess oj God's day is
disrospocted tho road to ruin Is very oasy,
The indifl'eronce of mothers on this subject
l greatly to bo regretted. They stand
aloof and then whon their boys and girls
fall prey to temptation find fault with the
W- O T. V. for not do'ng more. But re
gardless of croakers and fault finders, we
shall still wage our peaceful war for God,
