SHENASTDOAH. PA., THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 10. 1S91.
THE 8TTBE ROAD TO OPULENCE LIES KNEE-DEEP THBOTTGH PRINTER'S INK
MoKINLEY DID IT.
A towu uubIiiws man yesterday
showed n Hkhald reporter n circular
he had just received from a New
York City nrm rending aa follows:
"The MoKlnley bill having advanced
' the duty on gold and silver medals to
60 per cent, (freo of duty heretofore),
it In Impossible to Import them In fu
ture and sell thum at the old prices.
We have therefore begun the manu
facture of medals In our Nhw York
factory for chalices, etc., and, having
made new dies with correct EuglUh
texts. The following list will show
we are prepared to make them now at
thnnlfl nrtae." The members of the
ilrm are Democrats, too.
This is a great country. It can
feed the whole world and still give its
owners meat three times a day and
bread and butler between meals.
The country is richer to day than
it was in 1860. Then there were
$13 85 for each inhabitant; now there
is $21.10. Republican rule aud pro
jection are the cause of the change for
V the better.
Hhenandoah Is fortunate in this
particular : Our business men nre
united in all matters of public enter
prise. They only have to contend
ngalnsttho little two-for-a-nlckle fel
lows to carry any broad-guage meas
ure that will build up the town and
advance Us Interests.
Closely following the wholesale
denunciations of State Treasurer Boyer
by the Democratic Convention, comes
the testimony of Governor Pattlson
before tho Legislative Investigation
committee, which as far as the Gover
nor could go, vindicates the State
Treasuier from the charges of speculat
ing In state funds. The Governor
testified that the bank of which he
was President had state deposits of
many thousands of dollars, but had
paid no Interest on the same nor given
, any other consideration for its use.

An Associated Pj ess dl-patuh from
Loudon, giving the views of leading
manufacturers In England, Scotland
and Ireland, ou the MoICluloy bill,
reveals the fact that the hope of tho
foreign manufacturer Is concentrated
in the belief that tho result of the
next election will be against the tarifi.
Acting upon this belief they are re
ducing the C03t of manufacture by
reducing wages and nre thus ablo to
keep up the volume of their Bales In
many kinds of wares. They frankly
admit that If America sustains the
tarifi their business will be greatly
curtailed, therefore the fight of 1692,
so fur as the American working man
Is concerned, resolves itself into one
for bread, for If the free traders should
Bucneed In electing a free trade Presi
dent and a free trado Congress next

opposed to the best Interests of Airier

Third. That said ward could be divided

Fourth. The division as mado by tho
said Commissioner is neither mado of

A Floor In a Museum Goes Down
Tho storo room in Bobbins' building on
South Main street, formerly occupied by
T. Rico, has been occupied by an
Egyptian mummy museum tho past few
days. Last night about 150 men and boys
crowded into tho place. Tho woight was
lot groat for the floor and down It went.
Tbo sound of falling lumber, combined
with tho shrieks of fright by tho timid and
oaths of the unterrified made tho place a
pandemonium. Tho north end of tho floor
broko from its fastenings and the couth end
retained a hold upon tho foundation wall,
forming a toboggan slido, and down went
tho men and boys Into a heap, with the
musoum manager and a couple of Egyptian
mummios on top. Tho drop was about
eight foot, but fortunately no one sustained
moro than a few scratches. An examina
tion of tho placo showed that when tho
building was put up the carpenters found
that their joists were too short and they
rested them upon a 4x2 pioco fastened with
spikes to serve as a girder.

A Jolly Gathering.
A very sociable gathering of the Shen
andoah Choral Union was hold at tho
Watson House, Tuesday evening. The
main feature of tho gathering was tho pre
sentation of a very handome badgo to
lh!r loader, Prof. P. T. Evsns. The
badgo Is an elejrant piece of workmanship
and tho professor may feel proud of it.
The prnsentation sponoh was made by Mr.
.1. J. Price, tho Main street dry goods mer
chant, who stated that the bulge was not
given in compensation for services ren
dered, but was a token of tho high ostoom
in which tho gallant loader is held by the
choir. Mr. Evtns responded In a neat
littlo speech thanking the choir and also ad
vising them not to bo tho loit discouraged
by tho defoat they suffered at Lakt-sido,
but to bo firm with tho determination to
win back their laurels at an early period.
Tho choir then opened tho evening pro
gramme by singing ' Shatlor the Bonds,"
which excellent pieco was followed by
' Hon Wtad fy Iladia," which wai ably
sung by Jlr. Thomas Uavis, of Wm.
Penn. Then, at tho request of Mr. John
Phillips, Messrs. Evans nnd Price sang
Tho Two Bards." Mr. Evans then an
ouncod Mastor George Ilonry Phillips,
who gavo that grand old song "Tho Sword
f Bunkor Hill." Tho balanco of tho pro
gramme consisted of a song by Miss Mary
Jonkins, recitation by Mis? L. Bevan, and
song by Mr. Thomas Divis. Tho choir
thon adjourned to the spacious dining room
of tho Watson Housn, whero they partook
t all too delicacies ot tho soasnn. Un re
turning to tho parlors tho choir was mot by
tho Hon. T. J. Higgins and Mr. J. A
Boilly, who desired to hoar somo tolec
tions, among which was "Hallelujah
Chorus" and "Tho Summer " It Is need
oss to say that both genllemon wore do

Mr Editor: It is due to tho gentlemen
who nppoared as prosecutors of the Sunday

thoir action should bo mado public. As a
re-ultof a largo public meeting committees
were ofllcially appointed by tho goneral
churches to deviso somo method of secur
Ing a betlor observance of tho sabbath
among us. At a subsequent meeting of
these committees a volunteer sub-corn
mitteo of one from each church und ono
at-large was appointed to bring such tiros
ecutions as might bo agreed upon. It was
decided to make Sunday base hall tbe first
object of attack, becaueo mora peoplo aro
implicated in it and because its very
popularity it loading so many of our young
From tills it will appear that the pros
ecutors aro acting not for themselves, but
in bohalf of tho churches who aro behind
them and stand pledged to their support.
Theso prosecutions, and others that aro
likely to follow, aro not potty prosecutions
growing out of personal grudges, but tho
first exhibitions of a movement on tho part
of a considerablo number of intelligent,
upright and determined men and wumon
who soek nothing but tho wolfaro of tbo
community through tho enforcement of!
tho law. The persons against whom proao
cutions may ho pressed havo no truer
triends than they will find intheporsons
who press them tbo moment they "cease to
do evil and learn to do well." In behalf
of law and order, I am very truly yours,
