Good Congressional Timber.
In these days of political unrest and
the great pleasure of the American
people at the ovations to Roosevelt in
Europe, much thought Is turned, by
the people, to the American Congress.
There is a del and for high-minded,
able and trusted representatives to
Congress. Without any disrespect to
any other representative, the people
of this Congressional district are turn
ing their thoughts and desires to the
faithful, tried and trusted represent
ative, Gen. Harry White, of Indiana
Co., Pa. If he will consent to stand
for the Republican nomination in this
Congressional district hundreds will
rally to his standard.
For six years he was Senator In the
Pennsylvania Senate and an able record
he made there. He was bIbo repre
sentative In Congress and he made a
name there which is known throughout
the whole country. For more tban
three years he was a soldier In the
great civil war, and through the mis
fortunes of battle on Lee's march into
Pennsylvania In 1803, he fell into the
hands of the enemy, and because of his
important and influential position in
Pennsylvania he was refused all offers
of exchange, and 8' yed solitary con
finement In the dungeons of their
Gen. White has a glorious record as
a soldier, as a statesman and jurist.
His influence, experience and ability
still belong to the people. Hun
dreds of his old frlendp are urging
bis candidacy and are hopeful he will

PATIENTS NOT ABUSED. - V '
Gum Hoke Used on Insane Patient
Woman Not Injured at Home.
County Commissioner Reitz, In an
interview with a representative of the
Spirit tuts morning explained, the
situation at the county home in de
tail, and from his statements, it would
appear that the first reports of the
Investigation by the grand jury were
exaggerated, and that the ml!d recom
mendations of that body was entirely
in keeping with the situation.
Mr. Reitz states that Superintendent
Smith bad used a gum I ose on a big
Italian, the demented mm who gave
the physicians at the Punxsutawney
Hospital so much trouble, on
occasions, w'u? . the big fellow
grew especially obstreperous, but that
he had at no time been Inj red or
marked by use of the cane.
The boy reported by a member of
the grand jury to have had his finger
broken when struck by Superintendent
Smith with a cane, is Bald by Mr. Reitz
to be a youngster who does not know
the meaning of the word "obedience,"
and that he Is somewhat harder to
handle tban the majority of the insane
patients. The boy had his finger
slightly Injured, not broken, when Mr.
Smith endeavored to fan his trousers
with a light cane, and the boy placed
his hand behind him and received the
blow on bis first finger.
The woman who tee tided that she
had been permanently Injured by being
thrown against a table is said to have
been injured before she entered the
institution. Punxsutawney Spirit.
THE NURSERY CASE.
Farmers and Agent Still Wide Apart but
the Latter is Trying to Untangle
Matters this Week.
The peculiar situation which develop
ed in portionsof Pineoreek and Wash
ington townships last week over the
refusal of many farmers In that region
to accept nursery stock previously or
dered, has changed little during the
past week, but the agent who secured
the orders, who is also president of the
nursery company, retured to this sec
tion Monday and is endeavoring to un
tangle the matter. He carries with
him this time evidence of the reliability
of the house and many testimonials
from people in nearby piaces to prove
that bis statements regarding the prof
Its of currant and other small fruit rais
ing were not exaggerated.
A few of the purchasers, whose orders
were small, have aooepted the deliver
ed goods, but some of the larger pur
chasers are awaiting further develop
ments and will neither pay for the
stock or open the box. So far as has
been learned the stock delivered has
been of first-class quality, but the peo
ple In that region were led to believe
that the nursery was not reliable and
that there was not the profit in currant
raising which had been represented,
two points which the agent hopes to
approve to the satisfaction of all, and If
he does matters will, doubtless, quiokly
adjust themselves and costly litigation
will be avoided.
The Business Men's Association held
a largely attended meeting last night.
A full report of silk mill affairs was
made and the Association voted to call
a special meeting of its local stockhold

The most destructive Are that has
vUlted Rldgway in many years broke'
out at one o'clock Saturday morning
In the Hyde-Murphy plant and before
its progress was checked damage esti
mated in the neighborhood ot $300,000
was done. The blaze originated In the
engine room of the p'lanlng mill and
spread with incredible swiftness to the
other parts of the struoture and soon
the entire structure was a mass of
flames. The buildings were nearly all
wooden and the efforts of the local
department were of little avail against
the fierce blaze. It was early seen that
if the progress of tne flames were to
be checked that assistance must be
secured and St. Marys, Johnsonburg
and DuBols were called upon for help.
The flames, after onnsumlng the
Hyde-Murphy plant, traveled up Broad
street and Mill street and traversed a
section of Main street, cleaning up
everything In Its path. The flames
were checked on the west at the Lund
& Shanlev building, and on the east
at the Union block. On Main street
at Smith brothers' store.
There U a rumor current In Rldgway
that the fire was the result of incen
diarism, it being stated that the night
watchman had put out three incipient

that baa gotten beyona control.
