Democrats and a sprinkling of Pro

besides making speeches s.hort
ones--from the bench in the Wayne
county courtroom.
The courtroom will hold something
like 500 people that is, It can ac
commodate this number with seats.
There is not likely to be anything
more than standing room when, at
2.30, the meeting Is called to order.
The women are to bo given the choice
of seats, and the fair auditors are
urged to como in early and avoid the
rush so far as they can. The coun
ty committee are very anxious for
the women to bo there. John K.
Tener is a good-looking man, whom
pretty much everybody, men as well
as women, seem to like personally
and thero aro other reasons.

Chairman Simons Tuesday that ho
would be the chairman on condition
that his remarks should be brief.
Mr. Greene is deeply interested In
the Tener campaign and will do all
the work for its success which he
may be able to perform without se
vere bodily exertion, for the law
yer-author has not felt strong since
ho recovered from his serious sick
ness of a year ago. He tried at first
to get Mr. Simons to excuse him,
but, when Mr. Greene noted theex
treme reluctance with which Mr.
SimonB accepted his declination, he
decided to undertake tho task.
Tho Maple City Fife and Drum
corps will furnish some of their
stirring music and tiiere will be life

Alleged Deal in Favor of llerry.
Burton h, Rockwood, chairman of
tho Prohibition stnto committee, in
a statement said tho Keystone party
was trying to saudbag Madison F.
Larkin, Prohibition candldato for
governor, off tho ticket and substi
tute William H. Berry.
While in Pittsburg Mr. Rockwood
said ho was told a movement wns on
foot to have Cornolius D. Scully
withdraw as candldato for stato
treasurer on tho Keystone ticket to
nllow Mr. Larkin to tako his place.
Tho vacancy left by Lnrkln, ho said,
wns to bo filled by Horry.
Copies of two lottors havo been
sent out by Mr. Rockwood, which ho
believes tend to prove that such a
movement was on foot. Ono of these
letters Is addrossed to Mr. Larkin by
S. K. and J. R. Hoover of Glondnlo.
Thoy urge him to withdraw In fnvor
of Horry, and contond that such a
step would ndvanco tho causo of tho
Prohibition pnrty.
In reply Mr. Larkin says that his
withdrawal would ho ruin to tho Pro
hibition causo. Ho also declared
that Horry was a perpetual candldato
for fifteen years and that ho was a
traitor to tho Prohibition causo.
Faruer: "To-day under Protection, my 20 bushels of oats aro good for 2.3U0
shingles or 337 feet of spruce lumber. Fourteen years ago, tho same oats would buy
only 1.D00 shlnglos or 270 foot of spruce."
Chairman of tho Republican County
Hut Glim Will Stand Pnt.
While members of the Keystone
party who believe their fight is hope
less with Berry as their candidate
want him to quit and are suggesting
several men as available to succeed
him, none of the influential Demo
crats will admit that tho withdrawal
of Grim to permit of a fusion nomi
nation is being seriously considered.
