They hare stubbornly oontinued this deadlook in the face of ' all reason and juatioe and Clinton and Ly oominf should now stiok to Hopkins to the last day, rather than give away to conferees who declare that they will rote for no, man but their own candidate, Clinton baa shown that she has justice on her side and with six votes for Hopkins it is osrtainly very unreasonable, to say the least, for either Tioga or Potter county to pursue the coarse it has. This nomination justly belongs to Clinton county and the Interests of the Republican party in the whole distriot demands an immediate settlement of this deadlock, so that the county - tiokets can be printed and distributed. The Pittsburg Times and the Pittsburg Chronicle-Telegraph bear off the palm in this oampaign for the invention of lies, which are as stupid as they are ridiculous. Ir President Harrison were to nominate Judge Walter L. Gresbam for the vaoant seat on the Supreme Bench, he would perform one of the beat and most popular aots of his administration. In this campaign the farmer should consult his own best interesls.regardless of parti/ ajftlitions, and it tsmy candid cohvictkm thai his best interest will be served by supporting Delamater for Governor-and Republican candidates for Qm-gresl pledgedJa the policy of protection.-Victor JS.

There if something in Pennsylvania politics and among Pennsylvania Republicans which 1 admire. They set the standard of party fealty and prestige high. It would be unfortunate -for the country, the party and the State to lower the standard of the banner State. She must raise her colors higher titan ever before.-SpeAkkb. Reed, The advocates of metaUio railroad ties claim that their use will totally prevent the spreading of the rails on the railroads and thus, aside of any other consideration result favorably in a financial sense to the roads' that nse them. The rails are so effectually bolted and damped to the ties as to make ties and rails seemingly one solid and immovable structure. "I predict the entire paralysis of English iron and steel manufacturers' trade with the United States unless the tariff laws are changed," said Charles McNeill of Glassgow, a manufacturer of iron and steel specialties, who is with the foreign excursionists in this country, and was interviewed at Chicago about the McKinley bill. If the English trade Is paralyzed it will follow that home trade will spring up to take its place. Home trade will cause the employment of home artisans, build up home factories, consume home products. - Philadelphia Inquirer: Mr. Wallace has made his little apeeoh and gone home. The grand tour mapped out for him by Chairman Kan has come to a audden end. What it the matter? Has Mr. Wallace discovered the truth, that Mr. William L. Soott ja booked for the United States Seuatomhlp in ease of Democratic viotory. Has be discovered that all that is wanted of Mr. Wallaoe is that be should "stand up" before the election and be relegated to the rear rank should Pattison be elected? _ ' Perhaps the thinnest device which politicians without honor and without oon-soienos have ever hit npon to injure a dangerous opposing candidate is to trnmp up falsa charges against him, and then oall npon him to prosecute them for defamation of oharaeter, perjury and what not. It is an old trick, and has seldom been played so vigorously as in the present oampaign against Senator Delamater. It is a sham as well as a trlok. The utter use-lesanees of libel suits as a remedy for campaign lies and abuse is too well known to require further mention. Suoh Baits would drag along for years, whereas to be of any effect they should terminate before the short oampaign does. Senator Delamater has done wisely not to adopt auoh a oourse towards his defamers. He denies the charges and oalls for the proofs. They have not been forthcoming, because they do not exist. 0*Brion and Dillon 1b Paris. Pabis, Oct. 17.-The Irish fugitives passed the day making visits.

Jatl-Tha Shot Find by a Man Named Duffy, Who Says He Is Willing to Hang. New Orleans, Oct. 17.-Chief of Police Hennessey, who waa fired at by an known persons at his own door Wednesday night, has died from his wounds. The tragedy was not unexpected, and for two or three yeara he has always been accompanied on his way home by a trusted friend. While the body of the late Chief of Police. Hennessy lay in state at the City Hall, Antonee Soafflda, identified as one of the assassins, was shot and mortally wounded In the parish prison by Thomas C. Duffy, a brother of the ex-prize fighter of that name. Duffy informed Deputy Sheriff Andry that he called for the purpose of seeing one of the "Dagos" arrested for the assassination of Chief Hennessey, as he believed that he was able to identify him. Soafflda came down, aooompanied by Deputy Sheriff Dwyer, and put his faoe within a few inches of the gate to recognize who it was that wanted to see him. Duffy, who was standiug also about a foot from the gate, with a lightning like motion drew a revolver from his hip pocket, and putting it within a few inches of Soaffida's faoe, pulled the trigger and the Italian with a groan fell baok in the oor-ridor, the blood spurting from a wound in the left side of bis neck. Duffy was disarmed. While in the station Duffy said that if the Italian died he was willing to hang. He said: "I only wish there wero about seventy-five more men like me." Duffy was locked up. When the wounded man readied the Charity hospital Judge Bringier was sent for, and with his assistant, arrived in a few moments. Soafflda was asked if he had anything to say before he died, and replied in the affirmative. He began his statement by saying: "We knew that Chief Hennessy and the Provenzanoa were good people. We were good friends of the Matrangas. I am going to die and I die innocent. My idea is the Matrangas did that to keep the Provenzanoa in jail. "Oh, my God, I am going to die," and Scaffida oloaed his eyes and remained silent. More than fifty arrests have been made of parties believed to be implicated in the assassination, and to-day another Italian, Pedro Natl, was identified by Officer Lan-nagan as one of the men he saw running away from the scene of the murder. PREPARING B*OB THE OPENING. to the Chicago Already Looking Ahead World's Pair. Chicago, Oot. 17.-Seoretary Diokinson, of the World's Columbian Exposition, has prepared an elaborate plan for the exercises and ceremonies for the dedication of the world fair building on October 12th, 1892. As the plan has received the endorsement of each member of the committee on ceremonies it will doubtless be adopted. | Mr. Diokinson proposes to give on the grounds and in the buildings a great inter-State and international military encampment and band tournament He would have the exercises begin on the first Monday in October and conolude a few days after October 12th, making that day the great event. He thinks that one day's festivities would not draw a complete representation from each State, and that the celebration would not be but the day. The plans, suggested, Mr. Diokinson believes, will bring together all craok military organizations and finest bands in the country, and make it the greatest military and musical event of the age. The Bocret of Libby Prison. One dark night in February, 1864, more than a hundred Union officers escaped through the tunnel of Libby Prison, Richmond. The Confederate sentinel on guard at the time was true to the Southern Confederacy, and saw the shadowy figures as they emerged into the light of the street lamp, and yet did not challenge or fire npon tbem. It has low; been a source of wonderment why he acted thus, and the real reason has never been made public The true explanstion is given in No. 44 of lite Holiday, which paper will be sent, on re-oeipt of five cents, to any address in the country. Address The Holiday, 19 Beek-man street, N. Y. What a Comrade Has to Say of the Kepuoll eaa. Candidate for County Tnasnr Mr. Editor: Please allow me spaoe in the columns of your valuable paper for a letter of recommendation for W. F. Love-land, Republican caudidate for Treasurer of Clinton county, a gentleman whom I have known from boyhood. His father, Reoben Loveland, a native of Connecticut, emigrated to this State early in life. He was an axe maker by occupation, residing in the vioinity of Bellefonte until 1844 when he became successor to the firm of J. & W. N. Hayes in the axe business, near Washington iron works, at the place now called Yankee town. Mr. Loveland waa a man of integrity) a consistent member of the Methodist Cburob, enjoying the friendship and confidence of the en tire community in which be lived for nearly forty years. W. F. Loveland, the subject of this brief sketoh, was but a lad when I first knew him. In October, 1801, he enlisted in Capt. t B. Schseffer's Company of the 7th Regiment Pa., V. V. Cav., serving until toe olose of the war. His record as a soldier is without a stain. His genial countenance and fund of wit and humor was always hailed with joy by the boys of the company as we gathered about the camp fire after a battle or a day's weary march. The relation of a little incident which happened to him mora than 29 years ago will not hurt bim now. On a Sabbath morning in November, 1861, during the period of our preparatory drill in Camp Cameron he dodged the guard and went to Chnroh in the eity ot Harrlaburg. On his return to camp he was gobbled by the patrol and lodged in the Guard house, along with others guilty of the same offense. But the survivors of the war will not hold him accountable for so slight an offense, as you all remember that many a brave man, many a faithful soldier who has long since heard the last roll call, found himself inside the guard house for merely coaxing a fat ohiokeu to oamp with him, or slipping a roll of golden batter from its cool retreat in a neighboring spring honse into his haversack. Such crimes were punished by military authorities in those days, but regarded by the boys as "military necessities." But to return to sober facts, I wish to say to the surviving soldiers, irrespective of party ties or affiliation and to any and all voters of our oonnty, to give Mr. Loveland your hearty support. Other things being equal, why is not the veteran soldier worthy the support of any man? Daring the four years of our National peril It was the surviving soldier, with his fallen comrades, whose bones find a lodgement in almost every cemetery in the land, who guarded your homes and your best interests, securing to your prosterity perpetual peace and National honor. Don't forget them now in the heat of political campaigns. Mr. Loveland is an efficient business man, abundantly qualified for the disobarge of the duties of any office in the gift of the people of our ooonty and if elected will makeaneffioientand worthy officer. W. H. KILLED BY A POLICEMAN. Prohibition Law Null and Void. Cedah Rapids, Iowa, Oct. 17.-Judge Stoneman, of the Supreme Court, deoided to-day that the State prohibitory law was null and void as far as the sale of original packages is concerned. If the laws of nature wen not violated here would be fewer funerals. Sensational Tragedy at West Pitt.ton last Evening. Wilkbs-Babre, Oct. 17.-j. W. Davis a wealthy coal operator of Wast Pittston, was shot and killed by Policeman William Weathers in the Windsor Hotel at Pitts-ton this evening. Davis, who waa under the influence of liquor, came into the hotel about half an hour before the tragedy and picked a quarrel with some guests. His conduct became so boisterous that the proprietor sent for an officer. Weathers responded and attemped to arrest Davis. Davis knocked bim . down. Weathers got np and made another attempt, when he was again knocked down by Davis and badly punished. The policeman drew his club and approached Davis, threatening to arrest him. He resisted and the polloeman drew his revolver and shot him four times. He died half an hour later. Davis was a prominent man in Pittston, and leaves a wif and two children. The shooting has caused much exoite-ment. The polloeman la under arrest and will be sent to prison awaiting a hearing. --.-- .i A Deserved Compliment.

The Republican Congressional Conference after taking the 131st unsuccessful ballot yesterday, adjourned to meet again next Tnesday in Willismsport at 2 o'clock. From what Mr. Hopkins' conferees say there was no likelihood of breaking the deadlock, and an adjournment under the circumstanoss was the best step that could be taken. Yesterday, in order to make a suooaaatnl effort at bringing about a nomination, the following resolution was noted npon: � RttolveA, That a committee consisting of one from each county be appointed to wait upon the candidates being voted for in this conference, for the purpose of ascertaining if they will, in the interest of the party, release their oonferrees from all instructions and obligations, leaving them free to unite and made a speedy nomination. ^- .

The Rating oa a Case Drops Like a Bomb. sheUlathe Prohibition Camp aad Cannes Coostenatlea in' the Btato - Original Package Bosses Will Now Re-Open, and the TraOte Will Resume. TopEKA, Kas., Oct 17.-A deoiaion was rendered in the United States Circuit Court in this oity, this morning, that has dropped like a bombshell and created consternation among the friends of prohibition in Kansas. ~ The decision in question allows the reopening of original package liquor houses in this state, and in effect declares that the Wilson bill enacted by congress does not restore the power of the Kansas prohibitory law as against original package saloons. The facta in the case are that Charles Roher, agent for a Kansas City liquor bouse, was arrested tor selling liquor in Topeka after the passage of the Wilson bill. The defendant applied to the United States Cironit Court for a writ of habeas oorpns, admitting that he had sold liquors as charged, but claimed that inasmuch as the Kansas prohibitory law waa enacted before the Wilson bill, that the Wilson bill did not apply. Judges Foster and Philips sustained the view and granted the writ PERSONAL PENCILING*. SOUTHERN BARBARITY. A Negro Pnachar Kills a Kan to Show He Hen In Theatricals. The New York Herald of Jnne 11 says. It's strange what strides the stage baa made daring the past Ave years, not to speak of a century. Business men have now taken a band in the pie, and find it a very profitable outside investment. Barrett, daring his grand struggle through numberless difficulties, was basked by some of the solid business men of London, who recognizing his ability during his season in London, saw a ohance for a good investment. And now a few busi-of New York have taken bold of a comedy drama sailed "Casey" Troubles," whioh they will put on with wonderful effects. They have a monstrous tank in whioh takes place a river scene of real water. The tank contracts and expands to fit the size of any stage, and during their trip across the country, prior to their seven weeks' run in San Fraaeisoo, they can take in some of the minor towns and thus make the journey to the Paoiio with more ease. Arrangements are under way for a big production at the Aoademy of Musio as soon as "Old Homestead" has had its run. Theatrical managers, look sharp. The business men will crowd yon out. Interesting News From Japan. Intelligence from Yokoboma, Japan, received in this city yesterday is to the effeot that there is considerable exoltement there about Treaty revision. The foreigners there thought the Japanese were getting too much power over them in the new treaties, and held a masting to protest This so enraged a certain olass of Japanese that they threatened vengeance on the men who spoke at the meeting and the members of the oommittee appointed to send a report to the home governments. The homes of these people are now guarded by polioemen provided by the government, for the officials know that should there be any trouble their treaties would never be received. It is not generally known that foreigners living in Jspan are not under Japanese law, but each nnder the law of his own oountry administered by the consuls sent out by the government he belongs to. The Jspaneae are not satisfied with this. They want all to come under their laws, and this the foreign merchants are not willing to do. -It is thought the Japanese will carry their point The fence around the Court Hoses has oeivedaooatofblaokpeint.
