PBICE-TWO CENTS ByENiNCx EXPllESS klNHLOE BKWTHEBS---rOltl.IHHKUa CLIMtm COUSTT'S CLAIMS. Wc herewith present tome of the claims of thin county for the Congressional nomination in this District. G'iiutnn count/ was organized J uuo 21, 1S39. Her first representative iu Congress was John J. Pearee, who was elected in 1B54 as an Anti-Nebraska Democrat, and served in tbe 34th Congress. Sullivan, Lycoming, Centre, Clinton, Potter and Mifflin counties then comprised our Congressional Distriot. Pearee was succeeded by Allison While, a Buchanan Democrat, who defeated Geo. Irvin, of Mifflin. White served in the 35th Congress. James 11 Bate, of Centre, was next nominated by the Republicans and elected over White, his predecessor. Hale auo oeeded himself, serving ia the 301b and 31 th Congress. The District was then obauged aud Clinton thrown in with Tioga, Sullivan, Lycoming and Centre, to form a new District. The Republicans nominated Wb. II. Armstrong, but .las. Hale ran as an Independent, defeated Armstrong, and served again in the 3Stb Congress. Stephen F. Wilson, of Tioga, was then nominated and elected by tbe Republicans of this District. He served two terms, the 39th and 401b Congress. Lycoming's turn then came and Wm. II. Armstrong was renominated by the Republicans and elected to the 41st Congrexs. Armstrong was again nominated, to succeed himself, but was defeated tbe second time by bis Democratic opponent, H. Sherwood, of Tioga, who represented this Distriot in the 42nd Congress. Potter county was next recognized by the Republican party in the person of Sobleiki Ross, who was elected to the 43rd Congress and re elected to the 44th. After Ross' first election Clinton was thrown into the strong Democratic District of Centre, Clearfield, Clinton, Union and Mifflin. Levi A.Sfackey, of Clinton, was nominated by the Democrats and elected tQ. represent this Distriot in tbe 44th sud 45th Congress. Setb T. Tocum, of Centre-Greenback-Kepnbllcan eandidate-was then eleatcd over Andrew G-. Curtin to the 46th Congress. Tbe Democratic party then elected Curtin, of Centre, for the three succeeding terms, viz: the 47th, 48th and 40th Congress, By � herculean (Sort, John Patton, Republican, of Clearfield, was elected in that strong Democratic District, to servo in tbo 50th Congress, Tbe Legislature then saw lit to place us in a Republican District once more, the one we are in to-day, viz; Clinton, Lycoming, Potter and Tioga, and Lycoming again walked away with the plum, Iu the parson of our prBSont Congressman, Hon. H. C. McCormick. Clinton ooonty has never had a Republican Congressman or Senator siooe its or-fr&nizatfan, wSifeereiy coonty touching the boundaries of Clinton has been represented at one time or another by a Republican Congressman whose election was proaared partly by the votes of Clinton's Republicans. Moreover Clinton has at different times waived her right to the Republican District nomination for Congress in favor of candidates brought forward by every other aoaoty now aomprialnz oar present Sixteenth Congressional district. Potter has had Ross; Tioga has had Mitchell and Wilson; Lycoming ber Armstrong, Walker and McCormiok. Tioga oonnty has bad a Republican representative in Congress for eight years- Mitchell 4, Wilson 4, and a Democratic representation of four years-Sherwood 2 and M. F. Elliott two years as Congress -man-at-Largc. Lycoming had eight years-Armstrong 2, Walker 2, and McCormick 4. Potter county bad Ross for 4 years. , In addition to this Tioga was honored by the Republican party, from 2881 to 1887, by the bestowal of the highest office lu tho gift of the State, vi2: the IToited States Senatorship, which was held by tbe lion. John I. Mitchell, to say nothing of her Register in Bankruptcy for over twenty years, a very Important office, which was. filled by F. E. Smith, Esq., the Assessor Ot Internal Revenue, Mr. Bowen, and Bank Examiner Young. With great unanimity the Republicans of Clinton county selected Albert C. Hopkins, of Lock Haven, as our candidate for Congress,subject to the decision of thoCon-gj-essional conference Mr. Hopkinsis well and favorably known throughout the district, by business and laboring men, as an extensive lumberman, a gentleman of sterling worth and in every sense nnaliSuI to fill tbe position to which his friends havo called him. Bis nomination will he a simple act of justioo to Clinton couuty, wbiob hti will oarry by a splendid majority-thus helping oar county ticket-more than this, ho Is the only man who c�n carry every county la tho district for Congress. Mr. Hopkins has named as h'.s conferees W. C. Kress, Esq., John Myers, Esq., and J. B. 6. Kinsloe, and with such a record as the above they can well claim recognition for Clinton's abofoe at expressed by tbe Republican convention, I DEATH OF KAY HAMILTON Letters Received Removing the Uncertainty Surrounding Bis Death, FULL DETAILS OF THE SAD EVENT Drowned While Ketorolac; From an Ante-lopo Haul-There are No Suspicions of Foul Play-Letters Received by Schoy-ltr Hamilton, Jr., a Brother-Attacked or a �upatic New Tc�k, Sept. Ifi,-The uncertainty which surrounded the rcpoit of Robert Ray Hamilton's death by drowning in tho Snake river, Idaho, has changed into the conviction that the ex-asscmblyman has met bis death. Two letters havo been recoived by Mr. Sohuylei- Hamilton, jr., which give fnrtbor details. One is from John D. Sargent, keeper of the ranch at which Ray Hamilton was staying, and the other is from Cas-simlr Do R. Moore, of Sine Stag, who was on a hunting expedition in the vicinity of Sargent's ranch. Kt'LI. nETAILS Of TIIE SAP EVEKT. Mr. Sargent's letter gives full details of tho sad event, as far as ho know, lie says that Saturday Aug. 23, while at Ivamtuck postoffice, Idaho, Mr. Hamilton was accidentally drowned in Snake rivor, six miles below the- outlet of Mary Mere. The day before be lelt tbo ranch alone-although Mrs. Sargent tried to pcrsuado him not to go-for tbe lower end of tbo lake, via the Sheridan trail, ou horseback, to hunt auto-lope. He had to ford Suako river below the lake. He forded all right, going down Friday, staid at tbe south camp all night, and started baok Saturday night with an antelopo head, skin and bams tied on his saddle, and went iuto tho river after dark, half a milo above tho ford, in about the worst place he could havo struck. It seems that his spurs tangled up iu the e,rass iu the bottom of the river. It really was the only placo in tho river where there is dead water. THE BOUV FOLXD. Mr. Sargent returned to tho ranch on I Wednesday night, Aug. 27, at 9 o'clock. Mis. Sargent said, "Hamilton has not re-1 turned from his hunt," and Mr. Sargent immediately sent an official mosaengcr to turn out tbe best mountaineers in tho lower valley to search for him. On Monday, Sept. 1, they found his horse with the saddle and the antelopo aattcrs; and hams tied on it. The horse's back was ruined by tho saddle turning and tbe weight hanging so long by the cinches. On Tuesday morning at half past S o'clock they found his body. His watch had stopped at half past 9 o'clock Saturday night, Aug. 29. lie was brought to Mary Mere in the boat, and buried close to the house on a spot overlooking Mary Mere and the Teton mountains. _S1K. MOOllE'3 BETTER. Following is tbe lottcr sent by Mr. Css-simir De R. Moore: LAKt 5IAIIV 3Sr.nK, Sept. b. ISM. Dxah ScarYUSB-IJHUe ami I have just arrived here at the lake ami met Air.

Will you please aenrf word to theih at home?" LTTTI.E ItOOM FOR UOl'E. Gen. Schuyler Hamilton, father of the drowned man, was seen by a reporter at the Windsor hotel. Tbo old gentleman, who has been mentally tortured by alternate hopes and fears since tbe Grst rumor of hiB sou's death reaohed him on Saturday night, seemed mora resigned to the blow now that be knew tho worst. "There is little room for hops now," be said sadly; "tbe two letters received by my bou Schuyler end all uncertainty as to tho truth or falsity of my son's death. I havo no doubt that ho is dead, and that ho died iu the manner Indicated by Mr. Sargent's letter. There is noLhing in the details so far received that would jutttfy a suspicion of foul play. "Mr. Sargent was well rcccoromenilod to my son by Mr, Wendell Goodwin aud ether friends, nutl I sec no object that nny ouo out there could havo in bringing about my sou's death. Neither du I think bu committed F.uicide. jtfyhnn w�s tuu bravo to take his own lifo, nr:<! had plenty of couragu to livo down ll.o cloud which Irr.porarily overshadowed hiscait-.er." yt'li'ilinil I'AllTK.'L't.AK:! TO r.F. SOI/GUT. Gen. Hamilton f-tated that further information must he obtained from Mr. Charles A.

No stops will bo taken for some tirau toward a coutinuanco of tbo suit for tho annulment of tbe alleged fraudulent marriage between Mr. Hamilton and Eva Manu. Window Echoes. Huston Saturday Evening Gazette. Open bouse windows on still anmmer nights afford good entertainment for thoso sleepless individuals who spend their time in kicking the sheet off and pulling it up.; "For heaven's sake, Maria," peals out a voice as startling as if from a ohurohyard, "don't snore so loud: I've done nothing but invent ways to wake yon np ever since I came to bed. The neighbors will certainly think I am strangling yon. Can't you put on the soft pedal * little? Ease up, anyway, till I get a cent's worth of nap." "Me snoring.'" Maria replies, in sleepy disregard of grammar. "It's your own echoes yon hear. I havn't had a wink of sleep. I can't sleep witb you coming in all hours ol the night, and turning up tbe gas full tilt to see if yon've dampened your patent leathers. Me snoring I Never snored in my life, and you know It. You didn't know what you were about, anyway, when you came in. You said you bad been down to Taft's, and there isn't any Taft's now. Think I'm a fool? You got into ono of your mixed drink snoozes and hoar yourself snore, and then yell 'Maria'.' Go to sleep, will you, and remember there's only ono person snores in this family, and that's you'. And a deadly silence rolgbs behind those windows. "Mar-mar, is you here'.'" "Tea, darling," "Is par-par here?" "Yes, darling." "Is we gofn' away to-morrow?" "Yes, darling." "Is I goin'?" "Yes, darling." "Is you goin'?" "Yes, darling." "Is par-par goin' ? "Yos, darling." "Is we goin' in choo-choos?" "Yea, darling." "Is I goin' in oboodhooe?" "Yes, darling." "Is yon goin' in eboo-cbooa?" "Yea, darling. "Is par-par goin' in choo-choos?" "Yes, darling." "Mar, Mar'." "Yes, darling." "Is wo goin' to Granmar's?" "Shut that child np, will yon, nelcn, or I'll come In there." And silence falls on another happy nocturnal talk. "Maud?" "Yes," in eager shrillness. "Are yon awake?" "Yes; are yon?" "Yes. I can't sleep." "Neither can I." "Wasn't he splendid." "'Sh, sh? Your brother will hear us." "Don't care if ho docs; he acted like a perfect brute to-night, to drag us home so early." "Well, Ruth'.'" "What?" "Don't you ihink?" "What?" "Don't you think" (subdued giggle)- "Do tell me what I don't think." "Don't you think your brother"{suiakor) "Don't be an idiot, Maud; what do you mean?", "I think your brother is" (sound as of pillow rammed into month)- "Maud Newbury, H you can't stop being a fool at midnight, what hope is thero for you?" "All right, Rutbic; I'm going away next wook, and you aan be as wise as you please, only I was going to say something that you might"- "Well, what is it?" "Why, I, (ecslucy ol Knickers)- "M.iu !" "I know it." "What do you know?,' "That I am a fool; but there"- "But what?" "But your brother is so very" (gyration of giggles)- "So vory what?" "Why so very" (choaks In a spasm of mirth)-a window suddenly bangs, and the sheot kicker is left in the summer midnight slough of silence again.

BLAINE'S SODHB LOGIC The Seorotary Makes a Strong Point iu Tavor of His Hobby. ANOTHER LETTER OH BXCIPE0CIT7 Thin Additional Expression of Mr. Blaine's Standing; an the Question BronSht Out liy a letter Written by Dim Daellnlnc the Invitation ol the Boot and Suae Clab to Address Them at a Bano.net. BoS'lON, Sopt. II!.-Secretary Blaiue has written a letter declining, on account of prior engagemente,an invitation to address the boot and shoe club at their annual banquet. In it he reiterates bis well known views on reciprocity, aud says: "Certain wise men ask: 'How can we sell farm products in South America when tbo same things �re produced there ?' Cereals are uudoubtedly grown in the aouthmost parts ol South America, but wise men will remember that cereals and sugar do not grow in tho same soil, and that tbe sugar countries of South and Central America, and the West Indies islands contain 40,-000,000 of people who import tbe largest pert of their breadstuff*. Indeed tbe largest part of the BUgar product of all latin America is at our doors, and we can greatly enlarge our exchanges there if Congress will give na the opportunity for a reolp roeal treaty. ' / 'Another class obsorve that they want time to study tho system. To this I might reply that the best method of studying a system is to observe its practical workings, while studying in tbe abstract and refusing to tike some objeot lessons. These gentlemen propose to open our market to latin American products free of all charge ithout asking latin America to givens in turn some freedom in their markets. The object lesson immediately before us ia the treatment of tbe sugar question. Shall we make latin America a gift of that trade ? When we have studied that lesson we shail be prepared for the second. The worst proposition of all is put forward by those who say: Let us put sugar on the free Hal now, and next year we will take np tbe subject of reciprocity. If I understand their logic, it is to make sugar free this year without condition, and next year to ask Spain if she will not kindly consent to grant us reciprocal tra.de, holding the complete vantage ground oor-solves. The proposed policy tranBlers the vantage ground to Spain. Instead of granting a favor to Spain to-day wo are to ask ber for a favor to-morrow. Thoso who take this ground belong to that class of careful guardians of property who prepare every strong lock for tho stable when the horse is gone." BASK BALI. BKCOBtl.
