Henry Ward Beeclier Talks of Both States- men and Also About Labor Troubles. April Ward Beecher has been stopping in the city in reply to a finestion as to Roscoe Conk- Hog's said he hoped that Conkling would return to public said Mr. best law-pleader at the bar. He is not the greatest because of his political but he prepares hia cases more thoroughly than any man I know. He goes to academies and colleges and reads np on any branch of a cause with which he is not familiar. Conkling is an honorable man. He quit the United States Senate as the outgrowth of his imperious his only defect as a public man. He quit not only bnt in debt about It was not ordinary but money for which he indorsed for his friends. Ha turns over every big fee he gets notwithstand- ing his creditors have offered him all the time he desires. I think when he has dis- charged his debts and got ahead he will again go into where he is badly needed. His hands are clean and he is a great President Cleveland fulfilled your expectations of far more. He is the greatest man since Liucoln to occupy the Presiden- tlJil r he be I think not. He is too good for his party. He does not provide swill fast encash for the dishonest element of his party. The miserable little fellows don't like him. They will want a different kind of a and if the Republi- cans are smart they will put up a clean man and win. Cleveland has said that he would not accept a but that was and I suppose he might bo in- duced to repent. One thing is he is not conducting his administration with a view to a reaomination. I was for him because Elaine's hands were not clean. Jim is a smart but he would have formed a government of meu whose palms were as itching as his own. The people will never have a preach on labor topics some- quite often. I Iiave been grieved by the course the trouble in the southwest has taken. I like the Knights of Labor. I like their principles. Organ- ized labor is the one tiling that will pre- vent abuses by organized capital. That man Irons ia a living the whole strike ia a blunder.

About yesterday Norman who was still leading tho peds by several was taken very sick and suffered intense pain in his stomach. His condition necessitated fche services of a doctor who finally got him but not until the elderly walker had fallen fearfully behind in the race. It was rumored that Taylor's coffee hid beeu while his compe- titors attributed his sickness to the free use of cider the day before. Taylor was reti- cent ami only wauled to get back on the sawdustagain. He walked a mile or two in the afternoon but was obliged to give np. In the evening he came on and walked steadily. Then he was thirty miles in the rear of Golden and Burns who were leading in the order named.

LCorrespotideuce oi THE April the first time since his fishing expedition iu Florida Col. State made hia ap- pearance in Barrisburg Tuesday evening. Your correspondent waa the first on the 'ground for au official call Wednesday morning. I did not have long to wait. The State Treasurer took n course such as mine host Hunter of the Lochiel Hotel dishes up to politi- cians aud humanity in general. He came from the dining-room through the public orSce picking his teeth with a quill in a very old-fashioned way. His entire ap- pearance had improved wonderfully since I last saw just a while previous to his departure for the evergladea of Florida. Eye voice step man- ners just the natural M. S. Quay of years when politics were a barter and a trade and business of a second- ary consideration. Ia their days Col. Quay followed for tbe most part the instructions of the elder and the younger Canaerons. They were the recognized managing lead- ers of the having for their trust- worthy field marshals Magee and others perhaps of equal impor- tance. Cameronipin as practiced by the Camerons is yet the friend of but they are in no sense his master. The pres- ent State Treasurer was a very apt scholar. He was not long iu asserting an individual- ity that was prompted by an intelligent and ambitious Long ago he was feared by the Camerons as a bav- too much brain. He thought aud read too much to snit them. Camerous have always feared a reading and a thinking man. When such virtues were combined with ambi- tion and personal magnetism their possessor became doubly dangerous to them. But Quay served them ou too many occasions to incur their enmity novr. Indeed they are his friends al- though he is independent of them as politician iu the United States. Quay is not the man to shun ix friend no matter what may have happened to change the opinion of the public toward tbe man. He is a prominent leader with a keen appreci- ation of the value of every voter. It is the esteem and regard for everybody that has made him popular. Under the leadership of such a man as Quay the voter always has the satisfaction of knowing his feelings will be reciprocated and bisopmibn respected on all occasions. Iu manners ho is methodical aud even to coldness afc bnt there is an indefina- ble cordiality about him that stamps hitn as a man who should be as he is deservedly popular amoug the trusted massb-i wen X did not J a to to SUy SO much about Pennsylvania's brightest and most reliable politician when I begnu this scrawl. _Quay was not long ecteriug into u discussio'n iu politics iu general irom tho administration at- Washington to the local bittles that will be fought throughout the States tha coming fall. He was particularly liberal iu expressing hiuiself on the politi- cal situation iu Pennsylvania. Like every- body who thinks enough or reads the signs of the he believes General James A. Beaver will be re-nominated nu first ballot or perhaps nD.inimou.sly. He is not un- mindful of the opposition that exists toward Beaver in very high circles of the Republican party. Bntthe remouslniuces are not formulated iu opposition can do him harm. Aside from this Quay be- lieves Beaver is demanded by the people. He may have fears others do about Beaver bying tbo beat candi- date for the pirly. If he has them ho is as usual shrewd enough to conceal them. He is not the lender to buck wilfully against the combined voice of the .Re- publican party. ITe has soon too many politicians lloored and knocked out by indulging too liberally in their own will against that of the people. Bight here ia one of Quay's strongest points. Beaver will be nominated. will reserve any individual opinion on tlie crmncea of liis election until after the Democracy have made their nomination. My mind ia t-olerftbly well made up but TJIK EaA'S independence ia .1 barrier to ante- belleura statements ou tho coming politi- cal contest. Beaver is pulling his own chestnuts out of tho fire. He refuses to have aught to do with others members of the old ticket of 1832. who ate doing some heavy log-rolliog to secure a place on the reconstructed plans for 188G. Greer and Davis arc making desperate efforts to have themselves reinstated. j3nt they are not likely to catch any of the .Republican pudding'that is passing around tbia sea- son. BrosiiiH is not pushing himself for arenoaiinafcion. He i a most deserving of but be is not unmindful of the strength that courtesy guarantees to success. Gen- eral Osborn will be renominated. He has made a but not excessively brilliant CoDgrcasman-at-Largc. His be- jag successful will side-track Chill tbe mushroom for the place from the west. Another-star from Alle- gheny has also eclipsed It is a star of the first magnitude. Major Mon- of is conceded a place on the ticket. He lias an excellent war and civil record. He haa brains and common and a united Allegheny delegation to back him. .Such a combination would strength to the Standard Oil who never indulge in poli- tics. Mayor Mo 11 tooth can make old Allegheny roll np the high water mark majority as no other man can. He would an axcepiioually aWe Lieutenant Governor. His knowledge of parliamen- tary usages makes him a fit person for the place. Cris the old reliable and never-weakening happened in as I EVERY conceivable shape and color in an incidental appendage to the horde of straw for ment youths and at politicians who visited this WOLFE week. He fished and bunted in Florida with Quay. He looks as fat and hearty as a fall partridge with eyes as sharpand clear as the head that htlda them. Of course Cris wants Moutooth on the State ticket. He came here to talk politics and make arrangements Jor the few changes that will be necessary the first Monday in May toward installing State Treasurer Quay in power. Qoay has just filed his bond with tbe of State. A glance at tbe names ia all that is necessary to convince the average mind that they are mostly solid men from all sections of the State. If Quay should ever tackle the uickle-plated j or Oil Exchange and lose all the money entrusted to his care bondsmen could good. But Quay will not speculate with the peoples7 money.

What the whole fuss about this dis- trict is is simply Wells were drilled on both ends of the so-called belt which proved failures. The next ventures wore mighty small producers. From points they worked together trying to both ends meet until 100 barrel wells were got aud likewise ou tbe sides. Tho only place pertaining to the liold whom there ia auy fear of getting wells of larger calibre is ou lots which ou pitpcr makes Grand Valley look precious small. On these totals there is probably a little pool about two miles long and half or three-quarter of a mile wide that is capable of furnishing wells of from 50 100 bar- rels. These largo wells are all iu de- fined territory aud of no import to tho trade as they arc completely surrounded by dry holes aud extraordinary small wells and it wonld not require the drill to go a great distance from the pool before they conld drill below the level of the Grand Valley sand without a'tiding any formation capable ot producing oil.
