Vote and work for McCrea's election. Madahr Patti haa signed a co&traot for twelve appearances in Russia during January and February-six at St. Petersburg and alx at Moscow. She is to secure the enormous fee of $64,000 and all expenses. Adeline Patti is certainly the queen of song, bat few woald have believed that her remuneration would ever have reached a rate whioh is on a par with the income enjoyed by tbe Queen of England.      _ Vz have reason tu expect, says the .Press and tbe Pattison supporters reason to fear, that the professional Independents against the Republican tioket will be more than offset by the defection of Democrats from the Pattison ticket. This will be particularly pronounced in Philadelphia. In addition to this the Republican lines bave been notably steadied within the last two weeks. This will be more and more apparent as the con teat closes in and the hofw/essnass of the Democratic situation Is still farther revealed. This great Republican State is not to be lost this year. Gkadoallt the secrets of the Scranton Convention are coming ont. The Wallace people were in the majority and that ma-. jority was changed into a minority by tbe manipulations of the old ring which ruled while Cleveland waa President. This was done at tbe direct aommaod of Mr. Cleveland, as ail who were within tbe circle of the political manipulators very well know. And now Charles P. Donnelly, chairman of tbe Democratic City Committee, of Philadelphia, is oharged with aiding Pattison by making ornn threats to defeat 'Wallace at tbe polls. Mr. Donnelly paraded th'e corridors ol the Wyoming hotel declaring that if Wallace should bo nominated be would eat him 5,000 votes in the Congress district in which the city chairman resides. It waa by snob threats as this, coupled with the Cleveland orders to Herrity, who bad opposed Pattison, to turn in for him, that Wallace Was beaten, and tbe Wallace majority ohanged into a Pattison majority.

Baltimore, Oct. 13.-Detectives of the Baltimore and Ohio railroad, assisted by a squad of policemen from EUioott city, arrested a gang of young railroad robbers near EUioott olty to-day, and they were brought to this city. The youugBSt is abont 15 years of age, and tho oldest not over 30. Thoir names are William South comb, alias Chapman, Lee Mullen, Rube Richardson, Harry Striokor and Frank Mooney. They are tho gang that held up and robbed George W. Williams, of Harpers Ferry. One man is now lying dangerously ill at the Maryland University Hospital as a result of meeting with these young desperadoes, or others of a similar character. He was stamped under tbeir feet, hit on tbe head with "billies," robbed and then thrown from the train while it was going twenty miles an hour. Another man was assaulted and thrown from a moving train, and Charles R. Smith and James Sobroer, were made to take off every stitch of olothiag hy the gang.

Tbe President and Mr. Quay did not meet while at the station, but it is shrewdly opined they will not remain in separation.

One of the best sang and most gorgeously ootsumed comic operas ever produced In Lock Haven, was "Boooacoio" as ran dered by the Marie Greenwood company at tho Opera House last night. The honors of the evening wets about evenly divided between "Booaeoio" (Mamie Taylor) and "Fiammetfa" (Marie Greenwood.) Tbe former a handsome, bright, dashing girl in male attire, whose graceful figure, olever . acting and fine singing won the plaudits of. the entire audience. Marie Greenwood who possesses a rare, sweet voice, highly aoltivated, fonnd abundant opportunity to display it to excellent advantage as "Fiammette." The company oontains three comedians, who OAnsed any amount of laughter, and their singing was also far above the average. The choruses, some of wbieb were strikingly beautiful, were well sung and added materially to tbe pleasures of tbe evening. We can conscientiously reoommend tbe Greenwood Opera Company as at present constructed, one of tbe beat on the road. At tho Opera Hone* Thursday Nleht.

The central character, Jason Whoatiey, la an elaboration of "Si Perkins," a transported Yankee who so one can help but become acquainted with an acoount of his many excellent qualities, and Mr. Jones deplota these qualities with rare fidelity to nature.

Prom the Philadelphia Evening Bulletin, r Ex-Senator Wallaoe'a apeecjt at the Democratic mass meeting in Philadelphia on Satnrday night on behalf of Pettieoa is not nnlike tbe famous speech which' \bt late Senator Conkling, was after much persuasion, induced to make in New York for Mr. Hayes as a candidate for President. Mr. Conkling contrived on that occasion to deliver a very good Republican speech without Saying anything abont Mr. Hayes or even honoring him by tbe mention of bis name, and after its delivery Mr. Haje's friends were not eertain whether they woald not bave been better oft if they had permitted Mr. Conkling to remain at home. � It is not unlikely that ex-Governor Pat-tison's friends shared thia kind of feeling alter they listened to ex-Senator Wallace'a address on Saturday night." From the beginning to the end they stretched their eara in veto to catch some ward from the lips of the Clearfield statesman tbat would Indicate a recognition of the existence of Mr. Pattison, who eat on the same platform. Baths Mr. Pattison did not deign to make any reference to Mr. Wallace io his carefully prepared speech, so Mr. Wallace ia his equally carefully prepared speech, seems to bave thought it entirely unnecessary to call the attention to Mr. Pattison. The tone of the ex-Senator's remarks was that of a man wbo performs an unpleasant task whioh be cannot easily escape; and his declaration tbat be accepted (be oandidatea of his party and the platform of his party because "it is tbe plainest duty of tbe Democracy to yield obedience to party behests when the flat is to go forth ina particular direction," needed no interpretation. It was apparent that Mr. Wallace bad prepared bis speech without any regard to what tho candidate for Governor baa been saying as to the duty of the paity on the issues of the day. Mr. Pattison has no ooncern for the Scranton platform; he long ago put it aside, and be bas told bis party to avoid all disonssion of national questions. Mr. Wallace, probably, has not heard this order from the new leaders, or, if he has beard It, baa not thought At to obey it On the contrary, be mounted himself boldly on tbe platform, deplared tbat Demooratio principles were as vital aa they ever were, that be had no �fan Shot'in the Head.
