The Aaavsce ef the Pfcllaislabla fa-Hlee tm To th* Etpv&iian Voten of Hmuflnania: We beg leave, fraternally, to call your attention to the importance of electing delegatee to the next Repahllean Btato Convention, to be held et Harrisburg, June 26tb, In favor of Gen. D. H. Heatings** oar candidate for Governor. In doing ao we do not in the least desire to underrate the blgb character and political merits of any other candidate. The most thonghtlal men of our party bave not failed to discern that the tide of popular support, which oerrled Benjamin Harrison into the Presidential sbatr.haa been ebbing since the laat election, end many strong bold* of tbe Republican party ''Eva been captured and some States hitherto Republican have gone Democratic. It doee not belong to oe to speeuBtte apon ceases, for they may be removed, bat the same Inftueneaa prevail In PsnntyWanta aa in other States and being timely Warned we ebould omit no effort to keep Penney! vauia in tbe Republican column. To do tbie we feel that  proper regard should be paid to tbe overwhelming demand which comes from all parte of the State tor Gen. Hastings. In the city of Philadelphia the feeling isalnust unanimous that be should be nominated; ao strong Is this sentiment that on tba 22nd day of April, 1890, an aaeemblege of business men gathered at the tbe Continental hotel and adopted the following teaolntkma: Whebxab, The next election for Gov. ernor of Pennsylvania la fraught with important results to our State and nation, and Whebeas, The best Republicanism Is tbat which ie guided and controlled by an Intelligent pnblie opinion, now than, be it Besotoed, By tbe Wanes sacs of] dolphin bare assembled, the* wa do earnestly reooaisarod to the next Repabll can State Convention the nunc of Colonel D.

Senlved, That-tee Chairman of this meeting appoiat: a committee of one hundred eitisenS ito take charge of tbie Bjovenwntih favor of General Hasting*, to use all houorehjeaod legitimate means toeeeurebteaoMasa, . General Heating wa* born in Clinton county In lSat, and la therefore In the prime of Ufa; at bis bead of the National Guard of oar BBste, a lawyer of high standing, a man the moat dauntless ooorage and spill em Integrity, be has stamped his iadttldasllty npon the poli-ttosolonr 8tabss>0 Batiou by bia able advoeaoy of aspa|liaan principle*, while his private and paWlo virtue* have en-; deared him to the jbtlre people.

We are coaOdeat thet the Democratic party will make si';:host determined effort to carry PenueylvaBla this fall, aa a preparatory movement .to the next Presl-dentlal election. Already the indication* point to a complete rssoaclliatioo between hitherto warrlag factkna. It ft apparent to all ohooivcie that General Hs*tings would Inspire lees opposition than any otter oandVdate whom we could name, hot because the other gentlemen seeking the DominaUon are- not worthy to receive (all Republican sspport, but aimply because we believe they cannot receive it. The Repnblloana of Pennsylvania, tbere-fbre, ought not to take doubtful ehancas againat assured snsssss. Hoping yon will agree with aa, we remain. Toon truly, Joan L. Lawsoh, Chairman, Jt A.
