Pbesident Harbison will visit Clevt land, Ohio, on Decoration Day to attend the unveiling of the Garfield Memorial The Williamsport Republican i> one year old and begins the second volume in a very health; condition. Under the man agement of Mr. John P. Dwyer our enterprising contemporary haa forged ahead at a rapid rate and now ranks among the beat daily newspapers in the State. The Senate has voted to appropriate (300,000 for a statue of General Grant in �Washington, It la rare pleasure to praise an appropriation and to say at the same time that its object does not need the money. General Grant's fame does not need a statue; but the nation will be honoring itself. It lis noteworthy how great is the interest of European countries in Brazil and how jealous they seem of the United States and our snppoaed interest in the new Southern Republic It is more than a mere suspicion tbst Italy is pushed forward by Germany to frustrate Republioan ideas there. The son of ex- Senator Jones, of Florida has been compelled at last to briosj pro-* eeedings In oontt looking to the confinement of bis father in an Insane asylum at Detroit. The wretched old man is now in a deplorable condition, and the heiress whose band he has been seeking fears that he may do her bodily harm. The doubling of tho track between Pittsburg and Chicago by the Pennsylvania road is the evidence of that company's confidence in the increase of business in the near fa tore. The company's gift of more than a quarter of a million of dollars to the World's Fair fund prove* its sagacity in being for Chicago as the place for holding the Fair and the energy of its prepare tions for sharing in the benefits. Citizeu George Fbakcis Thais, of nowhere and everywhere particularly, reached New York Saturday on a trip around the world, and left a few hours later for Taooma, expectieg to reaoh there this week; thus making the quickest trip on reoord. Mr. Train had the benefit of much money, spesial trains and steamers, and all the convenienses possible, so that bis .feat will not rank with that of Nellie Bly. Ha will, however, beat Pbileas Fogg, the Jules Verne hero, who traveled in the same way as Mr. Train, iKmjlif for a Branch. Ballroad. For several days past a corps of lallroad engineers have been at work making a survey for. a branch of the Beech Creek railroad on Eddy Ltok Bun, a tributary of Beech Crack. The line will extend from the Beech Creek railroad towards the Susquehanna river, and will run through vast traots of timber, coal and fire day lands. POLITICAL AND PERSONAL.

Qalglxy and Other Worthy PoUUdana-Mora Railroad Talk-Olher Timely Topics In an Attractive Oarb. [Special Correspondence.} Willi axspobt, May 19.-"Who will succeed Hon. V. Q. Metzger as State Senator from this district?" is 'the question now agitating the minds of Dcmocralio politicians in Lycoming county. Four years ago, it will be remembered, Col. J. G. Freeze, of Bloomsburg, was a strong competitor of Mr. Metzgar for the nomination, but failed. It was expected that he would be a candidate again, but it appears that such will not be the case, and new men are now appearing in the field. Mr. Metzger has made a very creditable record as State Senator, and will retire from office with the reaped of his constituents. He is the second youngest member of that body and has made his mark a legislator, vrhioh will greatly redound to his advantage in the future. C. La Rue Manson, Esq, a member of the well known law firm of Candor & Hunson, will be the leading candidate from Lyooming to succeed Mr. Metzger. He is a gentleman of excellent ability and high standing, and endowed with any amount of pluok, dash and endurance. As Williamsport has grown to be a large oity, with great manufacturing industries and vast commercial interests, it is important that she should be well represented at Harrisburg. Mr. Munson is the man for the place and there should be no hesitancy about nominating him for State Senator. Among the names of the other candidates mentioned are those of B. S. Collins, of Sullivan, Dr. Holla, of Mot-tour, anoTGrant Herring and A. L. Fritz, of Colombia, with, possibly, Mr. Montgomery, of Munay. But it is be. lieved tbafMr. Munson will be the strongest candidate, and his nomination is reasonably certain. It begins to look as if ex-Governor Pat-tieon will be a strong competitor of Hon. W. A. Wallace for the Democratic nomination for Governor. Many of the faithful followers of the spirit of Thomas Jefferson begin to fear that the Clearfield statesman is too much identified with corporations to make a Btrong candidate, and they lean towards the young ex Governor as the most available man. The Grangers alBO look upon him with favor, but it is doubtful if he oonld tell tbe difference between potatoes and ruta bagas, or cabbage and lettuoe. Mr. Wallace, however, has many friends in this county and they will do all they can for bim and very likely secure the delegates. Hon. R. P. Allen, a leading politician and member of tbe bar, is an ardent and devoted friend of Mr. Wallace, and will see that bis fences are kept in order in Lycoming. If by any fortuitous circumstances Wallace should land in tbe obair cow filled by Governor Beaver, Mr. Allen would very likely be his Attorney General. His ability to fill the office with credit would not be doubted tor a moment, aud his fine social qualities would add greatly to bis personal popularity. But it is useless to indulge in such speculations, as the office is almost certain to go to a Republican, Just now there appears to be a lull in railroad building-or rather a cessation in the work of projecting new roads for entering into Williamsport. The Pennsylvania is doing nothing towards extending its oanal branob through the city, and already there is a great deal of grumbling at the delay in filling up the abandoned ditch, whiob has beoome a veritable open sewer. And it is feared that if it remains in this condition it will become a breeder of pestilence when the warm weather sets in. In the meantime the best informed persons on the snbject of railroad extension, claim that the surveys for the projected outlet of the Reading have been completed and tbe line located. It is claimed that the road will run from Newberry Junction via Blossburg to Erwin's, in Steuben county, New York, and that the distance is 83 miles, instead of 113, as by the Fall Brook route up Pino Creek. Tbe grades aro reported light and there will be no water to contend against. In anticipation of the road being built through a new oountry, preparations for opening mines and lumber operations are being made by parties who have an eye to business. It is hoped the project will be carried out-it would open up a country rich in coal and iron, and prove of great value to land owners. New towns would spring up at various points along tho line and a fresh impetus would be given to business. The Pine Creek region, which is noted {for tbe beauty and grandeur of its natural soenery, is last becoming a popular place for summer cottages. H. C. Green, of Wellsboro, contemplates building one near Four Mile Run, whiob he will also use in winter time as his headquarters for lum bering. A party of gentlemen living in Williamsport erected a cottage a short distanoe above Waterville a few years ago, wbioh has become a popular plaee of resort for their families. They gave it tbe peculiar name of Pa-du-co-hi, which has puzzled tho onrious to know what it meanB, and from what seuroe they obtain ed It. The j oint owners are Messrs. Page, Duble, Cornell and Hill, and by taking tbo first two letters of their surname* the combination Is formed and an odd as well as appropriate title is the result. Mr. Cornell, the well-known druggist, spent last week with bis family at the cottage and will be followed by other members of the company soon. In this way the owners of Paducohi pass the time around and en jay themselves during the season. Other oottages along the oreek will soon spring up. Only a year or two ago John S. Tomb, of Jersey Shore, built one near Slate Run, where he has a saw mill, tbat has become a delightful plioe of resort in hot weather. Its location is high above the railroad, and pure water, as oold as ice, is conducted from a spring near by. The surrounding soenery is wild and ragged, and the air ia as pure and bracing as it is in much higher places in the Alleghenles. To return to politics. There will be a large number of Democratic candidates for the Legislature here this fall. Among tbe number mentioned I notice tbe name of Hon. A. J. Quigley, of this oity. Mr. Quigley was a representative from Clinton county in 1878 and is not without experience at Harrisburg. He oomes of one of the oldest families on tbe Weat Branch and is a gentleman of excellent standing and ability. If the Democrats should nominate him he would infuse a good deal of vigor in tbe delegation and make it lively for some, of tbe dronea. Dr. George G. Wood, of Muoey, will probably be one of tbe nominees. He se.rved in the last ses-| sion with great credit and made himself a useful legislator. He was a member of the Library Committee, and proved to be "the right man in tbe right place." Census Supervisor Brioker, of Jersey Shore, will soon announce the name* of the enumerators selected to do the field work in his district. Unavoidable delays, caused by parties declining to serve after they hsd been designated, have kept tbe work of organization back. Williamsport has been honored by having one lady- Miss Porter-selected as enumerator In the sub-division of the Eighth ward. A lady has also been seleoted in MoKean county, wbioh makes two in the district The gallant Captain, for his recognition of woman suffrage, in this respect at least, ia entitled to tbe thanks of tbe ladies. The present census promises to be the most exhaustive ever taken in this oonn-t ry, and the work is indeed eolossal. Captain Bricker'b district is one of tbe largest in tbe State and covers vast and important interests. It embraces tbe great hemlock belt, in which are located the enormous tanning industries, to ssy nothing of lumber, soft coal and petroleum. Tbe manufacturing statistics of Towanda, Williamsport, Lock Haven, Bellefonte aud Bradford will probably be gatbeisd by experts specially seleoted for that purpose. This work will not begin until after the enumerators have taken tbe census of population. Very few persons have a true conception of the vastness of the manufacturing industries of the eleven counties constituting this census district, and when the figures are gathered together and put in a position where the mind can grasp, and comprehend their magnitude, the result will be as surprising as it will be gratifying. Several Williamsportershavestarted for Europe already this spring, and more will follow during the summer. Among them is Addison Candor, Esq. He is making, bis arrangements to sail early In August, and expects to visit Xondon and Paris. No one is more deserving of a brief vacation than Mr. Candor. He only expects to be absent from bis desk six weeks, bnt in tbat time be will see tbe splendor and glory of two of the largest oitles In the world. OUR LOCAL DRAG NIT.

PHHjAr/BLPHLi, 'May 19.-Tbe Supreme Court emphasises Upvalue of good character in an opinion delivered by Chief Justice Paxton' this morning, granting a new trial to Charles' Cleary, who was oon-vioted of murder in' the first degree in the oyer and terminer, of Clinton oonaty for the killing of a police officer in the town of Renovo, at the close of an evening of hard drinking. There was no doubt that Cleary was the man who. killed the offioer; and his defense consisted almost'wholly of evidences of intoxication at. tbe time and of previous good oharaeter.' In charging the jury the judge told them ."good character la always of importance, and is evidence to be duly oontldered by tbe jury, and may turn the socle when there Is a reasonable doubt as to tbe degree or grade of the crime." The jury found ;the 'defendant guilty in the first degree, and the Supreme Court revetea the judgment and orders a new trial on the ground that this instruction gave the jury no right to infer that the evidence of good oharaeter might create a reasonable doubt which entitles a prisoner to a safe deUveranoa.. "The rule deduoibla from the author^ ties,'' says the Chief Justice, "may be briefly atated thus: Evidence of good, character is always admissible for tha da-, fondant In sj criminal esse; it is to be weighed and considered in connection' with all the other evidence in the' and it may of itself in ' some ; lnstanoes create the reasonable doubt which would entitle the eooueed to an acqultaL The rule itself is not merely meroiful; It is both reasonable and just^ Then may be oases in wbioh evidence of good oharaoter is all that a man can offer in answer to a charge of crime. Of what avail is a'rood oharaoter which a nun may have beta a lifetime in acquiring if it is to benefit.bim nothing In bis hour of peril ? .      . The Chief Justice points out thatNtVtbe other evidence raises a reasonable doubt, the" prisoner is entitled to an acquits). . Bo, that to restrict the force of good oharaoter to suoh oases is to give it no weight whatever. Iu considering tha opinion of tbe county court refusing a new trial, in whioh it was said that as the. commission of the crime was not disputed, the only question for the jury wsa that of degree, which depended solely on the degree of intoxication so that the evidenoe of good character wsa not material, the Chief Justice continues: 'The commission of the homicide was conceded, but not the commission of murder in the first degree. Tbat was the orime for whioh he was on trial, and of wbioh he was convicted. The commission of that offense was disputed. Nor did the question of tbo degree depend alone upon tbe condition of intoxioation.. The jury found that he waa not intoxicated to the extent of preventing his forming the wilful, deliberate and premeditated intent to take tbe life of tbe deoeased. Just here was the place where the evidenoe of good oharaoter was entitled to come in. and bare its due weight. Here was bis supreme, peril. The defense of intoxication had failed. If a man's good oharaoter is to avail him at all, when does he need it more than when a jury is deliberating upon the question whether he had. formed in his mind tbe deliberate intent to take a human life? It might not have availed anything in this case; we are not considering tbe weight of the evidenoe upon this point; tbat was for tbe jury, but it should have been submitted to them in snob a manner as to give them a proper understanding aa to bow they should apply it. We cannot. treat this as an Immaterial matter which did prejudice the defendant It may not have, done so, but we cannot say so. Tbe issue of life and death is so vast, both as to this world and tbe next, tbat it ia our duty to weigh every word carefully and leave notbing to conjecture." time by the farmer,' who had arrived iin tbe scene with a fence rail.
