To the Republican Electors of rennsytvania:
After consultation and correspondence with
the members of thCtfepubllcan Stale Committee,
and bii their direction. I hereby give notice that
the Republicans of Pennsylvania, by their dulu
"ehosm representatives, will meet in State Oon-
) ventlon at Ilarrlsburg, Wednesday, Auguti i
1891, at Wo'clock A, M for the purpose ofplac
ina in nomination candidates for the offlces 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 approved June
19, 1891, and for the transaction of such other
b usiness as may be presented.
Notice is especially directed to the fact that, in
accordmce with the' provisions of the last men
tioned act, each Senatorial dltlrict ts entitled to
a representation of three delegates in said Con
etitutlonal Convention, two of whom only can be
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 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 Vie primaries consistent with
the preservation of the party organization."
Wil. It ANDREWS, Chairman.
Senator Quay has resigned the chair
manship of the Republican National
Executive Committee. The new
chairman has a thankless task before
him, Senator Quay won one of the
moat notable victories on record In '88;
and, as a result of his success, ho has
been the target for the Democratic
nbuso ever since. The Democratic
papers of New York have fairly out
done themselves In coarse Invective
and mud slinging. Their intention
was to drive Quay out of power and to
prevent him from conducting another
campaign. They succeeded In forcing
him to retain the chairmanship for
months even years after he Intended
to retire. It Is no secret that he wished
to relievo himself of the dutlesof chair
man right after the Harrison campaign
but he refused to go out under flro.
and he has held on to the present time.
That much the free traders haveaccom
pllshed. Now that their fire has
practically ceased he ha3 declared his
'--'Intention of severing his connection
rvith all olllclul management and
" another is to take his place.
Mr, Clarkson will succeed Senator
Quay. A better selection probably

Is intimately acquainted with tho
duties of tho committee. He has a
knowledgo of men and politics. Ho
has the ability to conduct a campaign
such as tho next will be. Peculiar
fltiHBJ is necessary for the otllce. He
has it. The Democrats won't like tho
selection for that reason. They will
continue to cry corruption. iThe freo
trade mud batteries will open and no
matter how honestly he may direct
the campaign he must expect to bo
plastered from head to foot. This Is the
only idea the free trade papers of New
York have of conducting a campaign
Tho resolutions adopted In recogni
tion of Mr. Quay's services as chair
man are true in every particular and
are a deserved trlbuto to ability.
Croakers may croak and Democrats
may sneer, but the resolutions tell the
truth about one of the greatest political
leaders of the age. PhHa. Inquirer,
t The Democratio press continues to
insinuate that Auditor General Mo
Camant is in theBardsley mire. The
Auditor General has denied the
charges made by Uardsloy under oath
and his oath should be accepted in
preference to tho irresponsible slurs of
political organs. During his career In
public olllce Auditor General Mo
Camant has demonstrated to the peo
ple that he is not only an honest and
upright man, but that lie Is fur abovo
tho level of such men as Iiardsley and
would never allow himself to be
smirched by the doings the convict
attempts to lay at his door. The
Democratic press, iu its political view,
Intimates to the contrary, but the
Democrats should not full to remember
that if they accept Bardsley's charges
as true, they put the btnnip of guilt
upon Governor Futtison, Alexander
McClure.Slngerly and like men, whom
they hold out to the people as tho
embodiment of purity. The shining
Democratio lights stand charged with
McCamautand thus far they have
failed to make u denial. That Mo
Camant Is innocent there can be no

Ueilly has boon suggestod as a compromiso
candidate. Nash says Wadlingor "isn't in

Wadlingor's connection with Ex-Congressman
Brumm in tho law business has given
him a black eye. Lot tho band play; tho

and J am ns J. Franoy, of town, ts tho other
Hon. Klim Davis, who has boon so often
favorably mentioned by tho press and
people for sheriff, has not consented, as
yet, to bo u candidate. IIo can huvo the
nomination if ho wants it, judging from
tho comments hoard on ovory sido.
From prosent appearances thoro will bo
plenty of harmony in tho Republican con
vontion on Tuosday next. There ought
not to bo any difficulty in nominating a
good, strong ticket, ono that will win in
November, unci mako way for another and
grander victory in '92.
