PUBLISHERS CO. HASTINGS FOB GOVERNOR. Adjutant General Hastings is gaining friends all of cr the State in bis canvass for the Republican nomination for Gov. ernor, and the people of Clinton county, big native county, are deeply interested in his success. Thore seems to be no question as to his being entitled to the delegate from thiB coonty and bis friends are earn estly working in his behalf. The following complimentary notice is from tbe Daily Democrat, of this city, whose editor was formerly a fellow townsman of Gen. Hastings at Bellefonte: Tbe editor of Tlie Democrat bas known General Hastings pleasantly for many years and always found him an agreeable and honorable gentleman, who merits tbe highest respect and esteem. While differing with him politically we can sympathize with bis efforts to secure tbe nomination of hiB party for the Governorship and earnestly wish him success. The Republicans of Clinton county, of which the General is a native, being a Salona boy, should certainly give him tbe delegates from bere. This much in our opinion is certainly his due. Tbe General is making excellent progress tn his march toward tbe nomination, and it does really look now as though he was going to be successful. We hope be will be able to knock tbe old politicians of his party all out, and crown himself with the circlet of the candidacy. If we mnst have a Repub-lican Governor, a condition however,whicb we hope the Democrats this year will be able to prevent-then give us General Hastings in preference to any other Republican yet named.

The Victim of Trenton's Mysterious Murder Burled-Miss Purcell's Position. Tbekton, Jan. 7.-The funeral services over the body of Mre. Mary EuifCn were held at 8 o'clock in the morning. It had been announced that the services rould be held an hour later, in the expectation that thus tbe presence of a crowd of morbidly curions persons would bo preveutcd. As early as 7 o'clock, however, tho street in front of tho house was choked with people. Tho house itself was packed witb the relatives and friends of the family. The body was incased in a satiQ lined casket, on the lid of which rested a wreath of flowers. The Eov. Dr. Stud ford, pastor of the Third Presbyterian Church preached the sermon. On tbe way from the house to the station the first carriage oi tho procession was occupied by Dr. Kniiun and Miss Pur-cell.

Pleasant, four miles away, at whiob place tbe body was interred. Tho further tbe investigation in the Kniffin murder case is pushed tho more it seems as though tbe crime was committed by Emma Purcell.

With the assistance of the maps, however, the condition of the weather at different places throughout the United States can be ascertained, and the people themselves ean "predict" or foretell the weather. The residents of Look Haven appreciated greatly the signal service predictions whioh were formerly sent to this oity and made known by tbe display of flags on tbe Simons' building.

THE NEGRO'S FUTURE HOME Senator Morgan Thinks That Africa is Their Proper Abiding Place. THE LAND OF FLOWERS. THE POSSIBILITIES OF THE CONGO Non-F artisan Temperance Women. The following call, signed by MrB. Harry White, of Indiana, Miss M. S. Sliep-pard, of Mansfield, and representatives from seventeen counties in the State, has been issued for a conference to be held in Philadelphia on tbe 16th and 17th inst. The call reads at follows: A crisis in the progress of women's Christian temperance work has come, whioh makes It necessary that the temperance women of Pennsylvania who are opposed to the partisan policy of the National W. C. T. U. shall meet in conference, to unite and decide upon their future notion. Chester, Butler, Tioga and Lebigh County W. C. T. Unions have already divided. Individual unions throughout the State have withdrawn, and many noble Christian temperance workers decline longer to approve, by remaining in the W. C. T. TJ., of a polioy that their conscience and judgment condemn, while many who have quietly dropped out of tbe work are now expressing a desire to join an organisation formed upon tbe original plan of the W. C. T. U. A conference of all women who desire to do Christian temperance work, and who object to the partisan policy of the National W. C. T. TJ., is therefore called to meet in the hall of the Amerioan Sunday School Union, 1122 Chestnut street, Philadelphia, on the 10th and 17th of January, 1390, at 10 a. m. It is moat earnestly urged that officers of non-partisan W. C. T. Unions, local and county, of W. C. T. Leagues, and all other non-partisan woman's temperanoe organizations, as well as individual Christian temperanoe workers who approve this oall, be present at this oonferenoe.

An African Republic that May Hold Oat Many Advantages to the Colored Race in America-The Question of Incongruity Between the Whites and Blacks Discussed In the Senate. Washington, Jan. 7.-In the Senate nearly tbe entire day was consumed by Senator Morgan, who advocated the passage of Senator Butler's bill providing for the immigration of negroes from this country to Africa. The Speaker argued that there was a natural incongruity and an Irrespressible conflict between whites and blacks, which nothing could cure except separation, and he therefore urged the adoption of this plan of assisting the colored people to go to Africa. In summing up bis speech Senator Morgan pointed to the fact that the negroes had no chance to rise in thiB country. There were no negro bank Presidents, no negro railroad Presidents, no negro Presidents of manufacturing, commercial, mining or navigation companies, no negro directors, cashiers or tellers in banks, no negro engineers or conductors on Railways, no negro Btate~or Federal Judges, no negro Governors of a State or Territory, no negro in any Northern Legislature, no negro Representative in either House of Congress from any Northern State. The negroe's entire field of endeavor was limited to political exploits. This field was occupied witb little benefit to himself and with great injury to others. Political influence would never lift the negro race in this country above its present level. On the oontrary the friotion or collision caused by the negroe's nse of the ballot would create more and more envy against tbe negro race. Mr. Morgan looked forward to the establishment of a free Republican government in tbe Congo region by tbe influence of American negroes, who would thus be the redeemers and regenerators of their fatherland. in the house. In the House Speaker Reed announced that he had visited the home of the Hon. Samuel J. Randall and administered the oath of offioe to him. Then ensued qnite a lively debate brought out by Democratic objection to tbe transaction of business under the rules of the last Congress, which have been adopted from time to time, pending a report by the Committee on Rules. The Repnblioans finally carried their point, tbe Speaker being sustained on a ruling he had made by a party vote. The Second Personally-conducted Tour to Florida via Venna. R. K. The first of the series of persouaUy-coo-ducted winter pleasure tours to Florida, under tbe auspioes of tbe Pennsylvania Railroad Company, left New York on January 7th, and, notwithstanding the unfavorable weather, proved a marked suo-oess. The seoond of the series is fixed for Tuesday, January 21at. The party will leave New York by special ttain of Pullman sleeping and dining care at 9:20 a. m., Philadelphia at 11:53 a. m,and arrive in Jacksonville tbe next evening. Tbe special train will be in charge of the Tourist Agent and Chaperon, who will render the members of tho party every assistance toward making the journey pleasant and comfortable. Considering the very hiBh grade of these tours the rates are exceedingly low. Excursion tickets, including railway transportation, Pullman accommodations, and meals en route in both directions, will be sold from New York at $50, Philadelphia at $48, and at proportionate rates from other principal stations on the system. . Tbe tickets must be nsed on the special trains in both directions, and are limited to two weeks in Florida. No other arrangement offers such a desirable medium for a pleasant winter visit to tbe tropics. The next party promises to he a very large one, and to insure engagements they should be made well in advance.
