The Orphans' Schools' Syiidiiuiie Not Frightened Democracy for Wagner Accepts. i Correspondence oi THE April celleucy Jid not create very much of a sen- sation in the eastern part of Pennsylvania when he removed Rev. Sayers and Mrs. Hotter from thts they held as inspectors of soldiers' schools anrt requested the resignation of Super- intendent of Public Instruction. The in- spectors will step down and as their authority is purc-ly within the prerogative of the Executive. He can remove them for cause. ButHigbae he cannot harm beyond a resprclful call for his resignation. Hig- bee i.s a Republio.in in politics and was re- appoioted in by Gov. Pattiaon in the face of a powerful opposition from some of the hungry IX-nvjcratic knowledge dis- who hiiK'urely despite superior that Jacksonian principles should be enforced by a Demo- cratic Goveiv..-ir. Oov. Pdtliso'i as a re- fbrai politician with H very delicate of mining through his veins heeded not party ciamor. He boldly uufl defiantly ivc.igaixed the foliowerj of would-bs G ivcrnor Joha Stewarfc by ap- poioling liighee Tbe local Democracy were fnriou.s. They orgaaized a scheme to defeat confirmiilion by the Senate with the aid of a few But it fell through for want of proper en- couragement and Hiybeo secured his place. He is a smiles ab everything but a request to resign and had a good reputation previous to the pres- ent disclosurea. He will not resign. He will tight. He is already preparing a reply to Gov. Patiison. Thosj who know him say he will read his Excellency a public lecture that will make his ears ring He ia fortifying himself with figures aud docu- ments. His though will be viewed in part ay the line of defends that will be pursued by the managers of the whose lips up to the present timvhavf' .sealed. Attorney General Cas-udiiy may begin operations at once against the syndicate. HisJostnictiona are positive. Bub lie may not follow the orders of his tbe Governor. In fact I hear ib hiuterl that there will he nothing further done in the case until after tho when it will be contested for all it is worth to the State aud the news- paper which inaugurated the sensation. of Pattison's enemies say hia letter is merely a make-shift to let him down hs will not prosecute tbe syndicate at all. This I give for what it way be wortb. But it does uot lake n very close observer to dotecfc a Inkewarinness in the Governor's official n Iterances when compared with the liighly flavored and colored reports that were made to the country ueuding tbo pre- liminary examination. lustead of Inspectors atitf the Governor has appointed Gen. Louis of to serve in his place. Gen. Wagner is a consnientiocs Re- with a good clear in whom the Governor has more than once expressed unlimited confidence. At first the General was iaeliue.d to decline the on business but the influence of personal friends induced him to accept. Strange aa it may he dcE-irefi'to serve without compensation This portion of his determination is vari- ously construed by the politicians. Ia any it places him in an embarrassing position. Bat who claim to know him best say Wagner is of the same opinion on the syndicate as Gov. aud that he declines compensation in order to throw off any suspicions that his forthcoming conduct or opinion may possibly be in- fluenced by Democratic money. Again are the Democrats mad at his they is aping President Grovcr in so-called reform movements to injure the party. Although reported to be tbe Democracy of Pennsylvania are very liable to come np smiling with their customary norvo and determination when tho partisan call is made for the Gubernatorial swacp- stakes. There are a few factional dissen- sions us bnt there will be no open breaks unless TIIK EBA correspond- ent has completely his reckoning. Some are dissatisfied with President Cleve- they has created a one rrrnn power by giving Randall almost exclusive control of the patronage. Others quarrel because Pattison has fallen lamentably short of their expectations. But nothing has b said so far against the leaders that I have not in sub- at for twenty years by the same with the few changes wrought by time. Democracy is always hopelessly and insanely divided upon holding a con- aud united and solid as a rock at the polls. In convention they always kiss and make up like quarrelsome lovers. How often liavo the people heard of Wallace em- bracing Randall and K.indall Wal- of hatchet being bDr'iecl and factional strife There are already signs of a reunion. T.t will be brought about by very nm.ch the same loyal influence that usually crops out just before convention. In my the Democrats should have called the State Committee together and lead the Republi- cans iu naming a day for their State conven- tion. Why they persist in doing everything second-handed is incomprehensible to me. Randall and a few others have been HO industriously dividing the fourth class poatoflices parcelling out tbe spoils that it is hardly reasonable to expect they are ready or that they even desired to take the initiative. They may be as ag- gressive as Sorrel Top Cooper who says he is nut a soldier's orphan nor even an or- phan of the but they do not show it. Some Democratic wag says they are aggressive in their minds. Coopers convention will be held as THE ERA has already announced. Eensel s convention is yet an but ib is reasonable to assume that he will have one some time after. York county Democrats endorsed Lieutenant Governor Chauucey Black for Governor. In where they elected Lattimer a Republican Jndge last despite tbe usual three rhousand Democratic Democ are divided on local but severely united they say on State nnd National i aaues. As the readers of THE EBA doubtlessly know is also a grand p'oachable family record. Black has inherited the traits and charac- teristics of his sire. He is a brilliant and indefatigable writer. As correspondent at large for the New York Sun for many years he has added greatly to the reportorial corps of that pre-eminently successful jour- nal. Black weighs two hundred pounds or more. He ia as kind and open hearted as he is bulky Aa lawyer and politician he is decidedly the severest candidate yet named by the democracy. lu politics he is liberal and socially he is a prince of good fellflws. Daring his term of office he has made himself deservedly popu- lar with a large class of political op- ponents wlio would not quit him at the polls.- I have heard many Republicans say they would sooner vote for Black than Beaver for Governor. They mean as they are not the kind of men who would boast ol their political in- tentions. Ia several social circles of the Democracy Simpson the present Secretary of nnl is mentioned PA a possible for Governor. Africa is from. Huntingdon county. He is fully in every particular for the position he holds. He has followed civil engineering for more than a quarter of a century. He is bnt his or some of his closest do not think he ahould be advanced over Chaancey Black in the party councils. Every partisan in Pennsylvania would cheerfully concede him a renomination to the office be holds. He been the ablest uiun in the place for fifteen years. Lucius of the Republican who was entitled to the office years would have made as capa- ble a secretary as Africa. I recall no other man that would compare favorably with him. Senator has hosts of who want him to accept the Democratic bub the statesman from Clearfleld firm says he does uot want the office. He says to THE ERA correspondent that he hfis nofc given tbe subject a thought aside from the refereuce.s made to personal friends who have urged him to he a candidate. It is understood Wallace would lead the party providing he could bs chosen 'without going through n bitter fight to secure the place. it is already hinted that Randall and Hensel and others understanding the situa- tion have passed the word all along the Administration Hnefl that Wallace must not ba opposed. Oa the other hand- they claim they will support him. Such unan- imity quite naturally makes the Wallace- ites suspicious. They think it premature and insincere. They base their opinion on the uncivil and con- temptible treatment their favorite has received from the Administration. Be this as it Wallace will remain a quiet candidate in the estimation of many stalwart Democrats who claim they want revenge now that Randall has all the spoilfi. But they and I think change from this position and remain true to the principles of which they claim Randall has since abandoned. One of the most prominent Democrats in Penn- sylvania says Randall is a Democrat. He is still a Whig and has voted with the Re- publicans on all important protective tariff legislation for twenty-live lie says he can produce the record to substantiate hu asserts. nc.-jimteuria there is an absolute bargain between Ran- find Col. McClure for the spoils of Pennsylvania. The friends of this trio can get anything they want. McKean Democrats already know post- ofiico was recently supplied with a candi- date named by President Cleveland at the solicitation of M. F. a warm friond of Randall's. Elliott had little outside bub he had a advantage pushing a dark horse after all other a dozen or more had abandoned the field. This is merely a small evidence oi' tbe countless illustrations that could be recited. In fact all that has been done came about in Hie same with few variations as to locality and But tho cer- tificates of endorsement have been practi- cally the Ifc is also hinted Randall will be urged as a candidate. He also .is opposed to running for the bnt sev- eral of his iutiraiUe say he will consent to do HO if he cftu save the party to the Democracy. There are iiuuiy administration Democrats wlio are sincere ia their opinion that is the only candidate who can secure Pennsylvania t.o the Democracy. say President Cleve- land will give him the full support of the Administration and its friends. Randall would certainly make strong candidate if the .1 of the Keystone State would care as much about getting him out of Cabgresa MS of who thinks Randall is the only man in America thatremaius an obstacle to tariff reform. I hear it on tho that Hon. W. W. Brown will practically have a walk-over far a nomination for a third term iu Cougres3 if he desires it.

It does not appear to be sprnviug as much oil as it did last evening. The owners are making ready for a large well. Munhall Co. iiave been shut down putting up tankage. The well commenced spraying last night after dark about the same amounf- Willetts No. 2. Ifc was a surprise to the owners this as they did not expect to reach the sand until to-morrow. These two wells are so much like the old Dyer Xo. 1 that they look favorable for good paying wells. Deeper drilling is all that can determine what they are good for. Pew on the have got the last bit and drilling again. The gas seems to be increasing and iu consequence thereof it will take time to get to the in- teresting point.

Jennings received a message from Clark Hayes last evening to the effect that the Wallace well was doing over a foot of oil in a250-barrel tank. The Galey Bros.' well passed through the sand and is dry. The Eachel and Hopper wells are due to get the sand to-day. STORY OF ALLEGANY. Not long ago in tba history of oil oper- ations the little of Allogany had quite a fascination for mystery artists who thought they had a little oil field all to themselves and were desirous of painting the towu u crimson color. Tbe prospects were not at all favorable ior n large but the.n it is presumed thafc they worked on the strength of surface indications. Here they worked with a persistence that no market could discourage and no oppo- sition intimidate. The first symptom of resistance that was was last Monday when thelvnox Stone well came iu which gives Allegany a mighty bad black and the Anchor Oil Company's which is almost worthless knocked the rosy color out of her. When a press slave dropped oft1 the train he noticed C. C. Charles William'Corse and J. A. Schraeder standing on the platform waitiug for tlie west bound train. Mr. Conroy extended a cordial invitation to the reporter to visit his No. which waa accepted. The re- mainder of the party were feeling sore or something transpired to prevent them from from joiniug in. Upon arriving nfc the well Charles paid off the informing Hint faithful servant that his services were no longer opened the tank house and made tho.se winch were mysterious and iiAbalistic features for the two public property. That which at- tracted the attention of Couroy Johnson wns the old Wood well ono location west of their No. 1 which wag oozing over one day while Couroy waa present. Fancying there waR something rich iu the immediate neighborhood these gentlemen leased all the surrounding land and sunk a test well. The sand was tapped at the deptli of feet and the drill finished up at passing through seventeen feet of oil bearing sand which looks very much like the regular Bradford third sand. They shot about .seventeen feet of sand and in the first Uveni.y-four hours the well mnde four inches in the bottom of a barrel tank. The well produced just thirty-four and three-fourths inches in the first thirty days and made sixty inches in sixty daya ending or a total of 270 bar- rels. No. '3 is still drilling and due to get the sand next week. The Anchor Oil Co on the Kane is through the third sand and if Gallagher were allowed to treat it toaJSO quart shot she might produce U barrels for a few days. Knox on the Zester loca- ted about a mile Houthwcst on a line from the Conroy Xo. was finished up at finding some eight feet of infe- rior sand with no trace of oil. The Wood referred to was sunk about ten years ago. The tubirjgand casing are on but no casing-head. A board that is over the hole holds the casing up. Oil oozes over every other day. They will build a rig over the hole and it. The Smart Aleck Oil Company and Ste- vens Company cased yesterday. Jqjio Knox intends building a rig on the Mrs. Chamberlin farm. Five Mile Oil Company are drilling on the Hall farm. The Little German Oil Company died on the 18th day of with convul- sions. Three days ago this who had an option on considerable land surrounding the could nob be persuaded to set a price on their property. Now they will sell tor an acre. The following appeared on the hotel reg- ister Monday with no given names or place of in large black MONDAY. MONDAY. MONDAY. MONDAY. MONDAY. The producers have all left this field and land in offered at very low figures. Little Datcby expressed his-willingness to sell at any figure. We were informed this morning that the contractors of the St. Marys well intend building a high fence around the derrick in order to the inquisitive visitor at a distance. They have an en- trance guarded by a who collect tea cents from all who desire to see the mysterious work conducted within. A person will be employed to re- main in the derrick alt the time and answer all qnestions pnt to him. By this means they hope to prevent the drillers being an- noyed. The plan is a good but whether it will ever be carried out or not we are unable to say. It will be noticed from tbe above clipping from the Times that the producers oat iu Ohio have contrived a scheme in which they will endeavor to realize enough money to help pay for sinking a well by charging the innocent ten cents to look at a driller. We have not yet been informed whether this specimen of hnmauity draws the houses that Barn urn's Jumbo did. If the results are why not do like- wise at Kane or Of course these places would uot attract the crowd's attention that Lima bat if worked probably the producers could make the scouts pony up a halt to catch on. BURNING On.. An Excltliiff Time lu u Blazing Tank Onr. Some weeks ago an iron tank on the bill at Carroll ton caught lire and the oil was drawn off into a pool near the Erie Railroad track. A spark from a passing freight train fell into the pool about noon yesterday creating a lively blaze. The burning oil overflowed the track and set on fire a tank car full of crude standing near the loading rack. The telegraph wires were very quickly destroyed so that it was impossible to wire Salamanca for assist- ance. Au engine dashed up how- and the firemen being appealed to turned out very quickly. They together with a steamer and other apparatus were hauled to the scene and by hitching to the dome of the burning tank car succeeded ia overturning it. In this shape there was no eacapa for the heated oil and gas. Sud- denly with n noise like the report of a heavy cannon tbe. tank blowing out one end.. Fortunately the forty or were working at tho opposite end or there would have baeu a fearful casualty. Burning oil was thrown over 150 feet iu the air and to a great distance. The car aud 300 feet of loading rack were destrayed involving a loss to tbe pipe line of The railroad company's loss was and a dam'aged track. The car held 103 bar- rels of not a large amount but enough to make it very interesting for the firemen who worked very putting on two streams from their steamer which was stationed on a flat ear and drew water from the tank of a locomotive. There was no great delay to passenger owing to tbe time the accident occurred. THE STRIKE AT CHICAGO EXBRTgA TKU-STATK COM5TERCK.
