A recent issue of the Johnstown Triliune contained tha following edito- rial: The versatility and great agility with which the average country editor is endowed; the ease with which he climbs to the dizzy heights of social and political eminence, and then vaults to the almost fathomless abyss of menial service, only to again clam- ber and tumble and numer- ousother things, pathetic and other- wise, were probably never better illus- trated than in last week's issue of the MotmtainEelw, published at Osterburg, Bedford county. As a starting point it should be noted that the Echo is absolutely "independ- ent" in political matters. Like any other echo, it only repeats on that sub.- ject what some one else has said. But this can be better understood from the "principles" which stand at the head of the editorial columns, reading thus: We desire Echo readers to distinctly re- member at all times that matter calculated to boost the chances of political candidates, which appears in this paper, is paid for the same as any other advertisement. This is strictly an independent paper and we are free to criticise anything that bavors of dis- honesty in any way. Nevertheless it appears that politic- al matter does sometimes get into the JJclw outside of the advertising col- umns. One a correspond- ent, penned an article concerning a picnic at which were present Hon. Joseph E. Thropp, congressman for Osterburg and the Echo, as well as the balance of the Twentieth district, and also Hon. John M.Reynolds, who is said to hanker after the shoes of Mr. Thropp, who has no notion of throw- ing them away at the end of the pres- ent two-year term. In this article who may or may not be an applicant for a postoffice or a consu- lar position, or as some intimate, to be partially reinstated in his old position as minister by being appointed chap- lain to a Philippine regiment, lauded Mr. Thropp and prodded Mr.Reynolds The editor is sorry for it. He must needs again assert his independence, and thus he does it: It matters not to the editor who the polit- ical candidates, may be, but we will have it distinctly understood thut this organ cannot be used by any one of them or their friends in casting reflections upon the char- acter or integrity of their opponents or sup- posed opponents. If Hon John AL Rey- nolds desires to be a candidate for congress see no reason why he should not he. Surely a thrust at Mr. Thropp And surely Mr. Thropp did not know it was oing to be "thrusted" or there would ave been no occasion for the editor of le Eclio jauntily jotting down this ttle society squib, making himself le envied one of all the people round s he sits upon the very pinnacle of >cial fame and smiles complacently at s humbler brethren of the race On Monday the editor was delightfully itertained by Congressman and Mrs Jo- ph E. Thropp at their home in Everett. Down from this dizzy height plunges le the echo of the rattling Iverware and clinking glasses ring- g in his ears. Hear this doleful cry explanation of the appearance of 3ayseed's" contribution For several weeks the editor has per- rmed all the duties connected with the ublication of this paper, having been cu- rie to secure the services of a printer, and r that reason the article referred to xive was not seen in its true light. Any rson who works on an average of eigh- en hours a day will temporarily lose his ute power of perception, and this was ecisely the case in this instance. What wonder that perception is dull- with numerous social duties piled >on editorial occupation. But other earns of glory shine in. Witness: The large dailies of the state have an- unced Hon. John H. Reynolds' candidacy r congress on the .Republican ticket to cceed Congressman Joseph E. Thropp an interview ire had with Mr. Reynolds learned that he has not declared him- If on the subject and that the statements the press originated with his f ave for some time been urging him to be- me a candidate. We desire to state at this [the K. G. E.J big picnic will be eld at beautiful Spring Meadow on the nd invitation of Hon. John M. Reynolds, nd he desires HS to state that everybody ill be welcomed. The italics, of course, are ours. They low that Mr. Reynolds is determined hat Mr. Thropp shall not be alone iu joying the companionship of the ewspaper man of Osterbnrg. Should jese two distinguished men fight a uel_over him yet we would not be urprised. Why, indeed, should the spirit of lis mortal be sad The editor of the clio is having a great career. D. H. Lovell Promoted. D. H. formerly superintend- nt of the Bedford division, P. R. R., as been appointed acting general gent, ic succeed W. J. Latta, who has The appointment, which oes into effect to-day, is provisional ntil confirmed by the board of direc- ors at its meeting September 13. Mr. Lovell was born at Duneansville eptember 19, when but a few ninths over ten years of age he enter- d the service of the Pennsylvania ailroad company as an "all around" oy. On the 1st of May, 1 SOU, he was ppointed a messenger in the office of the iperintendent of delphia, and advanced to a clerkship n the general superintendent's oUice n February, 1S70. Feeling the neces- ty for further preparation for a rail- oad life, Mr. Lovell entered school, here he remained until March, 1873, he re-entered the general super- ntendent's office as a stenographer. He continued in the employ of the ompany until 1875, when he took a hree years' collegiate course, after hich he entered the office of the prin- pal engineer, Philadelphia, January 1873. One 3'ear later he was ap- ointed assistant supervisor on Divi- ion No. 10, Pittsbi rg division, and ad- anced to a number of higher posi- ions, until he was made superinten- ent of the Bedford, Cambria and learfield and Monongahela divisions le received the appointment as super- ntendent of the Delaware Extension nd Kensington division on January 1 899. This division has always been onsidered an important one. The uperintendent has not only charge of he passenger travel in and ou t of Broac treet station, but the various freight .tations within the business limits oJ and also handles the coa' ,ommerce seeking inlet or outlet via he Pennsylvania railroad and the >ort of that city. The many import- int positions held by Mr. Lovell have 'urnished him with a varied railroa e ballots and have paid a tax at least lirty days before election. Young en between the ages of twenty-one nd twenty-two years can vote at that fe without paying- a tax. Some of the Republican editors had ich an abiding faith in the resources f the machine that they put the re- ult of the convention in cold type be- )re they received word that Quay'scan- Hay Brown, for supreme mrt justice, Josiah R. Adams, for ipreme court judge, and James E. arnett, for state been afely landed. The returning volunteers, as with ne mighty voice, assert that General :is, McKinley's minion in the Philip- nes, is incompetent and that under .s regime the war will continue in- efmitely. Yet, despite this authentic nd indisputable testimony, the major sfuses to remove his favorite, but is oing to give him more troops. What the use to send re-enforcements with- ut a competent commander? The election will be held this year n Tuesday, November 7. The law re- tiires that all citizens should be regis- red sixty days and have their taxes aid thirty days before that date in to make them eligible to vote, herefore voters must be registered ot later than September 7 and pay ir taxes on or before October 7, the th'falling on Sunday. Every voter lould examine the registration list nd see that his name is on it. The following story about Admiral ewey has been "going the rounds seems that Dewey on his return a cruise was attacked with an Dcess of the liver and had to stop over t Malta, where he underwent a sur- ical operation. Some clays afterward ne of the surgeons said, "It was too ad, commander, to rob you of your ver as we did." Dewey replied: Don't mention it. It gives me great leasure to think that I shall never be o bilious again as I have been.1' Among the many transactions which be Republicans will have to explain n the next campaign will be the ae- on of the administration in regard to he court martial of Capt. Oberlin M. arter. It is now fourteen months ince a military court unanimously entenced him to dismissal from the rmy and a fine of for complic- ty in frauds in harbor work at iavannah, Ga., by which it is estimat- d the government lost In pite of this verdict, Captain Garter is till an officer, drawing full pay, the 'resident having so far failed t3 give he sentence of the court his approval o as to give it effect. It is generally uelieved that if action is delayed for a few months longer the defendant's bondsmen will be protected from bility by means of the statute of limi ,ation The latest excuse for fur ther delay comes from Attorney-Gen ral Griggs, who says that Captain Carter's lawyer has gone to Europe on a vacation trip and he can do nothing until his return. Captain Carter ap parently has very powerful "friends a court." They are One of the Greatest BleasingR To Any Community, One of the greatest blessings to any oramunity is the privilege of' good ducational advantages; schools that re conducted upon the principles of rue education and whose teachers are evoted to the work and not such who re merely teaching in order to have omething to.do. Bedford county is fortunate in num- ering among her educational institu- ;ons such a school as the Bedford Clas- ical academy. The old time academy was a very mportant factor in the educational ork of a generation ago. The acad- my buildings which are found in many communities are a monument to he generosity of the people, and the fe and influence flowing forth from icse centers have in turn enriched and nnobled them. We are indebted to the Id time academy for inestimable priv- eges afforded in the development of mny of the most illustrious statesmen nd most prominent professional men f our land. Some years ago the acad- my came to be looked upon as an old me institution and the popular favor was directed to schools of another aaracter, but we have come to our mses and the old time academy has gain come in favor and in greater de- and than ever. Everywhere in response to this de- and are being established schools of iis character under various names. The academy, with the public schools, as to do with the most important part f education, the laying of foundations, caching that which is fundamental. A very prominent educator of onr ay recently made the assertion, that ur need to-day is not so much for more universities and colleges, but for ood preparatory schools which will rcpare our boys and girls for college r for the active duties of life. That 3 what we need for our boys and girls: rst thorough grounding in what we sually term the common branches and let them have all the advantages f advanced studies that can be afford- d. Bedford is particularly fortunate in aving an academy in charge of such, ompetent hands as Prof, and Mrs. C. Smith. Both are thoroughly edu- ated and experienced teachers and of ich unquestionable character that the outh under their direction must re- iive lasting impressions for good. The young men who have entered the everal colleges from this school are olding high rank in their classes, and t least several promise to be "honor men." The advantages it affords under tbe ersonal direction of Prof, and Mrs rnitk to such who are not looking for- rard to a college education, but to m mediate preparation for the practi- al duties of life, are excellent. Bedford and community ought to Lve this school their best support by ay of attendance and all who are in- erested in the cause of education ught to give their moral support and ympathy to the noble work Prof, and rs. Smith are doing in our midst. SUN DAY'S STORM. Uutton Hole tarty. On Saturday a button hole party w: in honor of Mrs. Dr. Wuth, o Pittsburg, at the home of her aunts Misses Mary and Emma Barclay.

CAPITAL JITY CHAT, .etter From Our Washington Cor- respondent, FOREIGN CONQUEST Our People Now Realize the Danger of the Adoption of An Imperialistic Policy the United States. Ipscial correspondence of THB GAZETTE. WASHINGTON, August we, as a people, anything to gain by join- Dg hands with Great Britain in a Na- poleonic policy of world-conquest? Ithough the administration is at aresent carefully concealing any dis- position, it may have to enter upon uch a policy, the disposition is believ- d to exist, and that question may be- ome a leading one in next year's pres- dential campaign. In diplomatic cir- les it is believed that the first steps oward sueh a policy have already een taken and that the suspension of 3r. Bedloe, as United States consul at lanton, China, at the request of the overnment of China, is one of them, Ithough it is stated at the state de- artment that the suspension of Dr. Sedloe was brought about by some rregularity in connection with his is- uing papers to an American vessel en- aged in supplying arms and ammuni- ion to the Filipinos and in issuing ertificates to Chinese merchants trad- ng with the Philippines. The present attitude of greatness ccupied by the United States was ttained by following, from the days f Washington, a policy of strictly at- ending to our own affairs and leaving be people of other nations to do the ame. The glamour of foreign con- uest has turned the head of the peo- le of other nations many times in the ast and a few months ago there ap- eared to be danger that the Americans rould be blinded by the same glam- ur, but the common sense for which are renowned has come to he rescue and our people are realisi- ng not only the meaning but the dan- er of the adoption of an imperialistic olicy by the United States and resent indications are that that reali- atiou will result in a restoration of he Democratic party to power and a esumption of the only safe foreign olicy for tlrs government to follow. Men who at the beginning supported de expansion policy of the administra- on are now severely criticising the esults obtained by foDowingthat poli- y. For instance, the Washington which has to all intents and pur- oses been an expansion sheet, says ditorially: "Either we have not the enius and the temperament for suc- essful colonization, or we have been rotesquely unfortunate in the selec- lon of our agents. It is impossible to ee at this moment where and in what espect we have accomplished anything mportant either in Cuba or in the 'hilippines. In the latter we have ndertaken to set up the regime of law nd order and civilization, and we have ailed utterly. In the case of Cuba we ave undertaken to give the people elf-government, or at least to test their apacity in that line, and we have done either. In the Philippines we have or six months or more been engaged n a petty and perfectly fruitless war .vith the natives. In Cuba the govern- ment consists of a military autocracy, ittle if any more beneficent than that onducted by the Spanish governor- erals in times of peace. In Luzon t is actual war we have upon our ands. In Cuba it is smouldering dis- ontent, turbulence in various parts of he island and a fatuous and feeble yranny at Havana.'' The designs for the new silver ertificate, one having upon its face a ignette of Washington and the other me of Jefferson, have been submitted o Secretary Gage. It is said that a Republican senator heard about this md at once hurried to see Secretary to tell him not to admit the Jef- erson design, because, if he did, it might become known as a Democratic note. Be that as it may, treasury olli- ials say that the Jefferson design is iot likely to be adopted. The prediction that all of the olunteers authorized by congress would be enlisted has been almost veri- fied. An order for the enlistment of one more additional regiment, which will bring the number of volunteers icarly up to the limit, has been issued >y Secretary Root, and the new regi- ment will be composed of negroes. The officers will, of course, be white men. Notwithstanding the statement of Secretary Gage that the be able to meet all of the expenses in- idental to the large army we are pre- paring to send to the Philippines, in addition to other governmental ex- penses, without asking congress to im- pose new war taxes or issuing more jonds, expert financiers whohave care- !ully studied the matter and whose opinions are not influenced by politic- al exigencies, still predict that more bonds or more taxes will be necessary, and when it is remembered that there was a. deficit of round figures, at the close of the last fiscal year, the prediction seems reasonable. It may also be mentioned that special agents of the internal revenue bureau are known to have been engaged for months in investigating the working of the various stamp taxes, presumably with an eye to more congressional leg- islation in that direction.
