Talk for ttao ticket, work for it, and by all means vote for overy man upon it. Don't scratch or paste a name. The New York World still continues to be the Democratic organ for this Stato. It does not protect borne industry. Witen a man tries to charge you an increased price for an article and lays it to the tariff, inquire what are his politics. Be sure yon take the bundle of green backs out of the stove, where you placed it for safe keepiog last spring, before you make fire. Don't forget to vote for the Republican Auditors. McGhee and Leitzol ar9 both good men and well qualified for the position. If you are a sincere Republican and have the welfare of your country and the success of party at heart, you will do some earnest missionary work in its behalf during the next two weeks.

THE TRUE SITUATION SET FOETH. In the jails and penitentiaries of the Ucited States now there are 4,000 murderers. Appalling figures, in themselves, bat when divided into Dearly $60,000,000 do not make such a record for the red hand as appears when considered alone. The Sheriff's ofUoe has been so well conducted by Republican officials that the best Interests of the people demand that Sheriff Leahy's successor should be a Republican and A. H. Beet is just the man to worthily fill the place. Let every effoit be made to elect him. If you want a first-class man for Pro thonotary of Clinton county vote for James Jefferis. The Democrats and the Brown family have controlled this office so lung that they begin to feel and act as if they owned it. Let the voters now have a say in the matter and transfer the office to a man whom they can feel assured will discharge the duties faithfully and jatiefoc-torilly. Ik making up your tioket on election day be sure that the name of W. F. Love-land, the Repablioan candidate for County Treasurer, is on it. Tbis is a very important office and should be filled by a careful and experienced man, one who will oondnct it on strict business principles, and not as a partisan. Such a man is the Republican candidate, and he should bB elected. Vote for him. Tlicre is something in Pennsylvania politics and among Pennsylvania Republicans which 1 admire. They set the standard of party fculty and jtrestige high. It would be unfortunate for the country, the party and U\e .Slate to lower the standard of the banner State. She must raise her colors higher than ever timbre.-Speaker Reed. George R. McCrea has made such a faithful and intelligent Associate Judge that the people of Clinton county waut to see him retained in his present position, therefore let every lover of good government oast a vote for him on the 4tb of November. On account of the aocldent caused by a runaway horse he will be unable to canvass the county, but it Is hoped that his friends will see to It that bis Interests do not suffer and that he is elected by a safe majority. As there has been some talk about a revision of the Brooks license law at the approaching meeting oi* the State Legislature, the friends of that measure naturally feel concerned about it. The liquor interest is dissatisfied with the manner in which the Judge* in some parts of the State dealt with the law. Tbey believe If the granting of licenses was placed ia the handsof an Excise Board, there would be a more liberal distribution of licenses. Naturally the friends of the present method oppose this so he me and are already preparing to resist any attempt in the direc-tion|indicated. The high license law has so far given excellent results, and there are no sufficient reasons for amending it now. Superintendent Porter, of the Ceu-sus Bureau, tells ns oar population In Pennsylvania Is, 5,248,574. That is about twice at great as the entiro population of the thirteen colonies at the period of the Revolution. Our Increase during the past ten years has been almost a million, or to be exactly accurate, 905,033, or 22.55 per cent. Some few Western States have done better than that, but none of tuo older ones have matched it. It is, indeed, a splendid record,and every Pennsylvania!, has reason to feel proud of it. What is more, our resources of all kinds are so many and so great, that onr prosperity for many years seems to be assured. When the nineteenth century closes we may stand at the head of the sisterhood of states. the recent Kansas decision. The city au tborities are arresting the proprietors and fining them $50, as was done before Congress passed the bill. There are at least 300 places where liquor is sold, but theso places will be closed up by the city authorities, and only respectable original package houses allowed to remain. Ireland's Qaestlons Now Eclipse All Oihers and Hurt Receive the Flrit Attention or ttao British Government-The Situation Hnch That the Irish People Have Good Reason to Bate Law. London, Oct. 21.-Mr. Gladstone addressed an audience of 5,000 persons iu the Corn Exchange at Edinburgh this evening. Ireland, he said, continued to eclipse all other subjects. The oountry now fully recognized that the Irish questions muBt be settled before the others. The opponents of home rule have hoodwinked and deluded their contituencies by pledging themselves against coercion, promising local government and expressing themselves against granting large advances of Brit'sh money to buy oui landlords, yet their first favorite measure after gaining power was ooeroion; local government was vanishing in thin air and there was a proposal before parliament granting �40,000,000 to buy out the landlords. The Conservatives took credit for setting Ireland right by firm and resolute government. Their administration of the law was worse than the law itself. The state of things was such that the Irish ought to hate the law, though he would not say they ought to break it. The government itself was a perfect pattern of illegality. Its methods tended to provoke the people. |* the tipperary affair. Gladstone then referred totheTipperary affair. It was grossly illegal, he Baid, to close the doors of the court house against the people. The appointment of Magistrate Shannon to try the case .was a gross scandal, not merely because he was an executive officer, bat also because he had been involved in a serioua personal 'altercation with Dillon. If such tricks were played in England by wantonness of power, a very short way would be found to remedy such abuse. After the examples of police misconduct at M.itoli alls town aud Tipperary it was impossible to respect the police or the administration of law by the police. Their brutality and harshness constituted the crowning insult of absenteeism-the grossest that could be inflicted on the people at such a time. balfour censured. Balfour appeared to feel that it was not * part of the business of the Minister for Ireland to reside there. How many of those present knew whether there was a Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland or not? (Laughter.) Nobody heard of him. Absenteeism, which was among the lowest signs of degredatlon in the last century, seemed now a constant habit; the Irish Minister flaunting bis absence in the face of the people. The Government vaunted itself on the peace in Ireland, yet kept six times more policemen there than in England and Scotland. British taxpayers paid 1,000,000 pounds yearly to the Irish police simply to assist in collecting rents for the landlords. English and Scotoh landlords met their tenants fairly and have not found it necessary to appeal for tb'e help of policemen to oollect tbeir rents yet the British landlords had lost more on rents than Irish landlords, and if the government would grant a general election the state of the publio opinion would prove that the country was woe over to House rule. a glowing prediction. On this great question of Ireland, Gladstone concluded, the last of the fortresses of bigotry and oppression would go down before the liberals attack. Justice to Ireland would rid the Empire of an intolerable nuisance, and a deep disgrace, and would gild with a glow brighter than that of any former period the closing year of a glorious reign. The speech was received with enthusiastic eheers. A RUMORED BIS DEAL. The State Poor Director*. Lancaster, Oct. 21.-This afternoon's session of the State Poor .Directors was devoted to the reception of reports from different counties on the workings of their local institutions.

Chicago, Oct. 21.-A special dispatch from Milwaukee says: According to a re port received here a consolidation 'of the Adams and United States Express Companies is said to have been agreed upon. The present capital stock of the Adams is $12,000,000 and of the United States $10,-000,000. By increasing the stock of the Adams Company to $22,000,000 and exchanging $10,000,000 of it for the United States stock the consolidation is to be effected. An official of one of the companies, who has just returned from New York and Boston, learned while in the eaBt that an inspection of all the offices of the United States company by auditors of the Adams had been ordered. The abovo statement was telegraphed to Boston last night and shown to Waldo Adams, of the Adams Express company, who refused to oonflrm or deny the reported consolidation. He profesBed surprise, but hiB manner was such as to indicate that the story had more of a basis than a mere rumor. the kepcrt denied. New Tore, Oct. 21.-Touching a dis-patoh from Chicago reoeived in this city to day to tho effect that a consolidation of the Adams and United States Express Companies had been agreed upon, Superintendent Hoey, of the Adams Company said: "There ia positively not a word of truth in the report in question. Nor is there the slightest probability tbat said consolidation will ever be effected. England and this country are quite as likely to unite their fortunes as that the union will ever take place." The officials of tho United States Company were equally cmphatio in denying the rumor.

Sam'l Lino, Oct. 10,1soo, by Jos. Parsons. Brethren ofthn liar of Clinton County: Mr. Chairman : .Solemn, awfully solemn is llie occasiou, which this day assembles u.s. We come not as heretofore, to commemorate the birth of a nation, or to celebrate the vie tories of onr country. We come not to proclaim the victorious deed* of the living patriot, or the warlike achievements of the existing hero. We came not to rejoice. Wo come to mourn; to mourn departed worth, and pay a tribute of gratitude to unparalleled merit; merit once on earth, but now removed The electric wires brought the sad news that Hon. Samuel Linn is dead; it fell like a thunder-bolt on our minds, each one looked with surprise to the other. With deep, pungent and heart-piercing pangf.it passed through our bodies. "Death thou hast killed another Wine and great, and s-xxl as he. Time shall throw a dart at thee." We cast onr eyes around and see the great( the wise and good fall around us. Judge Linn and Chief Justice Miller, of the Supreme Court of the United States, are no more. Like "ears of corn, ripe for the sickle," as was proclaimed from Mount Gil boa, "how the mighty are fallen." Language would fail to give a full account of Judge Linn. As a hueband, beside his fidelity, he was attentive and affectionate; as a friend, he was faithful and sincere; as a neighbor, he was just, generous and obliging; as a citizen, he was highly deserving of praise. For he not only honored thelawBof his country, but in every respect, promoted Its Interest to the utmost of his power, especially by his countenancing and promoting those principles that he upheld. As a lawyer and Judge, upright, honest and fearlesn in doing right. It might truly be said of him, "au honest man, the noblest work ofOod." To the poor, he was liberal, to the stranger, hospitable, and to all his deportment was ailable; though grave, benevolent, without pride, and pleasing, without aflectation. His manners were plain, bat dignified; In his conversation eaey, Instructive, but not loquacious. He encouraged modesty and virtue, but frowned upon Imprudence and vice. As he venerated truth, he discountenanced falsehood, and being generous himself, he abhorred meanness of spirit. He was beloved and revered by all who had the honor of his acquaintance. Educated In the principles of Christian religion, he continued to embrace it from conviction of its truth. He adorned it by a life of Industry, sobriety, temperance and chastity; humility, Justice, charity, piety and fallb, and trust In God. Judge of thlH district, Judges, lawyers and pollLlcal olllcers of all ranks; well may each of you say, "O, that my head were waters, that mine eyes were a fountain of tears." for you mourn the best of friends, and first of men. He duly appreclatedyour beneficial Influence In the civil and judicial system; your Importance with regard to general good. He knew, tbat of many members, unequal In dignity, faithful In their appropriate spheres, a perfect body Is composed. Be inspired by his example, and you will strengthen the filaments of society. Von will be guardians for the rights of Individuals, as well as for those of the nation. Amidst alt trials and contests Judicially, behold his manly and Judicious conduct. He1 Etood I "Like some tall rock that lifts Its awful form,! Swells from tho vale, and midway leaves the storm; I Tho' round hiH breast, the rolling cloud be spread. Eternal suushlno settles on his head." In vain can tongue express the many bright spots In his life. He needs no panegyric from me. There they are, behold them, they stand I like the monument of Bunker Hill, and there | they will aland forever. \ To us, who still travel on in this "vale of; tears,"-to us It belongs to honor bla memory, and Imitate his virtues. All men think all men mortal, but them* selves; , Them selves, when some alarming shock of fate Strikes Lhro' their wounded heart the sudden dread, But their heart wounded, like the wounded air. Soon close; where, pass'd the shaft, no trace is : found. As from the wing no scar tho sky retains; Tho partial wave no farrow from the keel; ! So dies In man the thoughts of death, I Ev'u with tender tear which nature sheds o'er those we love, we drop it in their grave." -Youno. The history of the world Is full of monuments; mausoleums and obelisks, commeni-oruttvo or the heroes that gained their renown by shedding blood and desolating the land, bringing Innocent women and children to poverty, but rarely to uphold freedom. Where in Greece, Rome and Egypt, their great monuments, their pyramids and Bpluxs and chcops, their orators, statesmen and philosophers are forgotten, no monuments to mark the spot where their remains are. Whero Is any %u!ogy paid tho Illustrious ie-males or place to mark their habitation, save In three instances. Cleopatra, she was of regal descent. Nor Mahal, a poor slave to a mogul Prince Akbar, her Godlike character, hor amiability, her great magnamlmlty, her power to sway the most savage beast, became � tho wife of Akbar, who was cruel, blood-thirsty ruler.

In roturn lor her greatness, he orccLed a mausoleum on the bankit of the Jumna river near Agra, known as tho Taj Mahal; over her remains. It took 2"J,000 men twenty years to finish it; said to have cost 850,000,000; inlaid with precious Jewels, the greater part of tho Koran, ot a cream marble.

I, In speaking of the contemplated mill Mr. Barrez said to-day: 'The Frenoh firm of which I am a member and which I represent in this country think that we manufacture a better class of woolen goods in Franoe than is made Amerioa. We have a number of Philadelphia and Chioago gentlemen with us who are willing to spend big money to see the scheme carried out. Of the four sites to be submitted, one of those in Philadelphia is almost certain to be chosen. The mill will be a great thing for American labor, as it will take at least a year to build it and when completed will give employment to not leBB than 0000 people." HIS FIRST CHEW.

Cantos, O, Oct. 21.-Governor Hill addressed an audience of over 2,000 people here to-night. He was heartily ap-luaded. And He Had Enough of the Weed to I-�*t Him a EJfe Time. From Harper's Young Peoplo. Tbe boy Baid it was a peculiar kind of tobacco, and was known as molasses to-baooo, beoause It was so sweet. The other boys did not ask how be came to know its name or where he got it-boys never ask anything that it would be well for them to know-but tbey accepted his theory and hiB further statement tbat it was of a mildness singularly adapted to learners without misgiving. The boy was himself oh iwing vigorously on a large quid, and launching the juice from his lips right and aft, like a grown person, and my boy took as large a bite as his benefactor bade hint-He found it as sweet as he had been told it was, and be acknowledged the aptness of tbe name of molasses tobacco. It seemed to him a golden opportunity to acquire a noble habit on easy terms. He let the quid rest in his cheek, as he had seen men do, when he was not orushing it between bis teeth, and for some moments he poled bis plank np and down tbe canal boat with a sense of triumph that nothing marred. Then all of a sudden he began to feel pale. The boat seemed to be going round and tbe sky wheeling overhead. The sun was dodging about very strangely. Drops of sweat burst from the hoy's forehead; be let go his pole and said that be thought he would go home. The fellow who.gave him the tobaooo began to laugh and the other fellows to mock, bat my boy did not mind them. Somehow, he did not know how, he got out of the canal boat and started homeward, but at every atep the ground rose as high as his knees before him, and then, when ha got bla foot high enough and began to put it down the ground was not there. He was deathly siok, as be reeled and staggered on, and when he reaohed home and showed him. self, white aud haggard, to his frightened mother, he had soaroely strength enough to gasp out a oonfession of bis attempt to retrieve tbe family honor by learning to chew tobacco. In another moment nature came to his relief, and then he fell into a deep sleep, whiob lasted the whole afternoon, so that it seemed to him tbe next day when he woke up, and glad to And himself alive, if not so very lively., Perhaps he had swallowed some of the poisonous juice of the tobaooo, perhaps it had acted upon his brain without that. His father made no very close inquiry in* to the faots, and he did not forbid him the use of tobacco. It was not necessary; in tbat one little experience he bad enough for a whole life-time. It shows that after all a boy is not so hard to satisfy in everything. Llppiaeott For November. The complete novel in the November number of Lippineotl't Magaiin* is contributed by Mrs. Jeanle Gwynne Bettany, the olever author of "The House of Rimmon." The story is entitled "A Laggard in Love," and the aoene is laid in England, principally in what ia known as the "Black Country." The homes and characters of the people dwelling therein are described with a wonderfully graphio pen, for Mrs. Bettany possesses a touch and genius something akin to that of George Eliot, whiob enables her to weave a thrilling romanoe out of the lives of humble people. The birth and development of an overmaateiing passion In the heart of a young oountry maiden, and the tiagio force whioh it beoomes, is piotured with the hands of a master. A great variety of character*, representing different phases of English life, are introduced, and all an oapitally portrayed. Without obtruding itself, tbe moral of the story is a strong and healthy one; Gambling oa the High Gambling on the high seal has Increased at each an alarming extent daring the present season's travel that several of tbe largeat steamship companies have Lately found it necessary to issue orders to their offioers to guard against the evil in their respective vessels.
