Some idea of valuation will be obtained from the following figures. The one cow to the third Ward is valued at $25. The two in the fourth Ward Are valued at $95 and the seven head in the first Ward at $97. It is the item of dogs however that affords the most food for reflection. According to the assessors returns there Are just 1,008 dogs in Montour county distributed As follows Anthony township 131 Cooper,49 Borough of Danville 246 Derry 118 Liberty 156 Limestone 54 Mahoning township 86 Mayberry 27 Valley 76 web Hemlock 45 Washingtonville 20. The 246 dogs in Danville ate distributed through the wards As follows first Ward 70 second we Ard 74 third Ward 40 fourth Ward 62. In Mahoning township where the assessor this year found Only 86 dogs last year there were 125 dogs.

If this agreement is carried out it will not Only prevent Focht s renomination now but keep him out of the Senate for eight years. Fochts adversaries say he realizes he is beaten and that he will withdraw in Godcharles favor if lie can induce the state machine managers to Promise him the nomination for state treasurer next year or auditor general the following year. Godcharles returned Friday from his wedding trip and it is expected a meeting of the senatorial conferees will be held within the next ten Days. Should Focht absent himself from the conference a nomination will be made without him.
