Olean Democrat, The (Newspaper) - September 23, 1884, Olean, New York The Olean Democrat VOL. V. OLEAN, CATTARAUGUS CO., NEW-YORK, TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 23, .1884 NO. 44 RAMBLING NOTES. Gossip from the Tfoithern of the State. Part What the Democrats, and Republicans are LAKE GEOEGE, cold wave has struck the summer resorts on Lnko George and Lake Cliamplain and tourists visitors and dudes have made a stampede for the York, Olean and Podunk, particularly the latter. Only few days ago every one sweltered even iu the most shady nook of the veranda, blessec hotels and panted for a breath of air whic h even the lakes begrudged as tliey seemed in league with old Sol to reflect his beams to burn up prespirin? humanity. Even I, an unrighteous scribe, did not escape, and while being jolted over Qaeensbury moun- tain, west of Glen's Falls, in a stage, was overcome by the heat and for forty-eight hours tried to die, but couldn't. Regaining my normal condition a day, or two at Lake George, a row across the lovely surface and swim in its clear cool waters rejuvenatec my enervated constitution, and prepared me for the cold wave which is now here. By the way, an address for Cleveland was given at Glen's Falls by ex-Assemblyman Bradley. Although it wasn't our mutual friend "Hank" it reminded me cf some of his vigorous anti-Blaine talk with which he recently favored a few of us in the Times office at Olean. Although in wasn't he, cer- tainly the denunciation of Dodger Elaine was his sentiment. A sail from Caldwell to Baldwin's on the a palatial paddle wheel steamer, occupied nearly three hours and re- vealed a vision of lovely mountain scenery really surprising for "this blarsted country, you know." The Democrats are enthusiastic in the N. E. of the state. Butler Las no following. Only the old steel engrave 1 Gret nbackers will vote for him. The Rev. Mr. Barbour, of Lake George has bolted Blame for St. John, and the Rev. Mr. Bate, of Ticonder- oga, who has also bolted Gen. J. G. B. Mul- ligan, will vote for Cleveland. The temper- ance men are busy organizing St. John this county which last fall only registered two votes for prohibition will on Nov. 4th make quite a respectable numercial showing. It is no wonder that our friends the Republicans are hot as pole-cats. Our friend John A Nichoils is whooping it up for St. John and endeavoring to success- fully do "the grave digger act" by trying to bury both the old parties. The indica- tions are that the G. O. P. will prove the first corpse. That is now it smells anyhow. Is it true that the old local ring of pot house politicians have been stirred by fear to scheme so that ''Ihe cannot be sent through the mails? I learn that their efforts will prove i n the end futile, and that Olean will have a permaaeiit prohibition journal. Am glad .to learn that the capable presi- dent of the Great Valley St. John club is a brother to the city editor of the Down at Luzerne, a beautiful mountain resort 45 miles north of Saratoga, I ran across an item. An old inhabitant had died heavily insured a few weeks before agei sixty-five. The policy was placed at Troy three weeks ago. The amount of the policy just claimed and suspecting something was wrong the company sent ad agent to the village who found that a relative had personated the old man who had been an in curable invalid for eighteen years. The en- terprising relative will probably have an opportunity to inspect the interi .r ot "Sins Twice." Long's hall, Glen's was engaged for a St. John meeting. The party lasii whizzed through the air, and Mr. explained that the meeting could not be held in his hall, as the Blame and Logan club who wanted the ball for headquarters threatened to establish themselves elsewhere if the St. John rally was allowed in his hall. Tbe Mulligan Guards had th-'ir way, but a rous- ing meeting was held in the west side M. E. church and a considerable num- ber of Republicans renounced Tricky Jim for St. Joim and Da- The R'.-v. A.

Betting on the Election. YORK, Sept. William Wyse bet even with Col. Charles 8. Spencer at the Fifth Avenue Hotel on Saturday thnt Cleveland would be elected. The samr> even- ing at the Gilsey Housa Mr. Wys-e bet even with Mr. Parker that Cleveland would carry New York State by majority. Mr. Robert Taylor, the furniture dealer, vi ho was present, offered to duplicate the wagers, but the offer was declined by Mr. Wyse. A group of sporting men were gathered in the corridor of the St. James Hotel on Sun- day evening, and when Mr. Wy.-e entered the discussion driftel into politics. Charles Davis, the bookmaker, offered to bet 8500 even that Mr. Blaiue would carry the State of New York. Mr. Wyse took the bet and was promptly placed with Capt. W. M, Connor, proprietor of the St. as stakeholder. Mr. Wyse cffered to repeat the wager with any of the other bookmakers but the offer was not accepted. A few days ago it was 1 that Al. Smith representing James E. Kelly, tue bookmaker, was authorize 1 to bet any part of on Elaine's election. The rumor reached Mr. Sol and he sent two representatives with each to interview Mr. Smith at the Gilsey HOUSJ. Mr. Smith said he represented Mr. Kelly merely in the matter, a d that personally he was backing Cleveland, and believed that he would be elected. Mr. Saj'le's representatives were referred to Mr. Kelley, who said he had changed his mind, and did not then propose to make the bet. A Noted Journalist and Author. Tltc Driver of Jay-Kye-Scc. Kansas Germans Stirred Up. TOPEKA, Kan., Sept. result of the Maiie election is beginning to show it- self in this State among the Germans. They are just apparently becoming aroused to the fact that prohibition is a national issue. A few evenings ago Herr Von Langen spoke in this city to a large and intelligent audience of German citizens, and his remarks were received applause. He argued to his countrymen that their hope for constitution- al liberty and personal freedom lies with the Deim cratic party for the present at least. Herr Von Langen is the editor of the Tele- graph, the leading German paper of the State. Four years ago it supported Garfield and w as rock-ribbed in its Republicanism. To-day it supports Glick and Cleveland. Mr. Von Langen said that as near as can be esti- mated there are German voters in the State. I have been a resident here for some time, and have an acquaintance atuoiig Germans all over this State, and I am not aware of one single German who cast his ballot for the Republican State ticket. "Four years ago we had only between 000 and and voters m.this State, and 1 can truthfully assert that from to 000 cf these votes were cast for Garfield. This year we have voters, and of the will go to Cleveland and Heudrieks. The Germans have an organ'zation the object of which is to defeat all sumptuary legisla- tion and the election of men w ho are in sympathy with them on this question. I am; and mind what I say: this is what "will bring about a revolution in the politics of to-Jay, at present unlouked for. The society in this State includes some of our most prominent and well known people. It comprises voters, and one half of these have been Ger- man Republicans. Every member will vote for George W. Glick for Governor and 40.000 votes of the society will go to Cleve- land." _ SUBURBAN If JEWS.

The Allegany Lumber Company purchased the timber on acres of land of Hoyt Brothers. Thd land is located but a few miles from Bradford. Hoyt Brothers have built a standard gauge railroad twelve miles long, running from the Erie railroad in Bradford to the heart of the tract. The Allegany Lumber Ci mpany will load the logs on the cars, aivl transport them to their mills at Carrollton, N. Y. On the 4th of last November, says the Smethport Democrat, John Lindren, a Swede, living in Port Allegany, fell into a railroad culvert and broke his leg. Tne limb was not properly set and consequently never flesh on the leg becoming a putrid mass so that amputation became necessary. Last--wesfc Dr. Free- man, of this place, and Dr. Otto, of Port Allegany took the limb off, but Lindreii only lived about au hour after the opera- tion was performed. OUR BAPTIST CHURCH. A 3IUSJEJIEX m The Fiiiest Churt-li in Olcaii as De- scribed by a Bradford Era Reporter. The finest building in Olean, it is claimed, is the new edifice of the First Baptist con- gregation, which n ill probably be dedicated about the middle of October. The new church, which faces the park, when com- pleted w ill cost, including the carpets, exclu- sive of the memorial windows, L. Vols, the noted architect of New York, fur- iiisbei the plans, and Gillmgham Co., builders, of Olean, are tbe builders of this beautiful and substantial edifice. The build- ing is composed of sto: e and terra cotta, and is of the niodernizeJ gothic style. Mr. explained to tbe writer that the original gofhic does not beyul to any one. while the modern gothic dres be d to buit ideas of comfort and convenience. The terior of the i.ew church, with the exception of the speaker's platform, appears to be nearly completed. The ceiling, wh.ch is made of corrugated iron, is beautifully fres- coed by the best of artists. The new jjpe is also in its place. The latter was furnished by a Buffalo company at a cost of It is run by water power. One of the features of the new Baptist church is the beautiful stained glass in the windows.

At the outbreak of our civil war he entered as a and soon after accepted a position 011 the staff of Gen. Robert C. Schenck, serving with honor through the war. In Col. Piat: was elected froni Logan county to the Ohio legis- lature, here he made himself obnoxijus to the politicians by his aavocation of reform Sickening of politics, with an experience that has since proved invaluable to him, he turned his attention to journal- ism. For three years Washington" correspond- 2nt of The Cincinnati Commercial he sup- plied that paper with a letter a day during tile- sessions of congress. These letters were a tremendous success, reason for which CoL Piatt says was that "the American public longed for personalities and I catered to that taste. In Washington I found the house a cave of the winds, and the senate a preposterous fog-bank. My holding a solemn old pump of a senator up to ridicule was as startling as it was delicious to the public." At tbe end of his three years work as cor- respondent he joined with George Alfred Townsend in starting The Washington Cap- itol. Townsend shortly afterwards retired from the paper, as did Mr. Piatt in time. Florence Fools a Hotel 'Cleric.
