PUBLISHERS current comment. A movement has been stirted in New York to send Chauucey M. Depow to the BoD�te in plaoo of William M. Evatts. Occasionally the old soldiers die, ami the people thought that U would be a good thing to j>r->-vide a kecent burial for those who die indigent, even at the expense o/ the State. M'ovlS you halt for Governor a man teho would refltsu thetn a dc-cent burial t-Aujutant-Gknekal Hastings. Before the passage of the MoKiuley bill ire were told that measure would about wipe oat the great cigar industry at Key West. It is now said that the output of cigars in Florida will be doubled within a year. Tiiebb is nothing in the annals of war-fare braver than the act of a body of men, still dated by the shook of a great explosion, ooolly fighting a fire on the roof of the OuPont powder magazine, knowing all the time that if a spark should make its way inside they would be instantly -blown to pieces. When the editor of the Democrat insists npon there being but 700 present at the Republioan meeting it must be remembered tbat he retired early to the shades of the Court House and did not return to hear either Mr. Stewait, Graham or Warwick-Even up to close of meeting standing room was at a premium. Judge Stewart, of Baltimore, on Thursday rendered a decision tbat will be of interest to a good many people everywhere. - He decided tbat the giving away of orookery, glassware or any other article with puroha�e of tea and coffee was contrary to law, and that dealers who praotioe this method of advertising their business are amenable to a fine of not Icbs than fifty dollars. The very Billy yarn which the Demo crats have been spreading abort the retirement of Chairman Andrews from his place at the head of tbe Stata Committee and the substitution of ex-Chairman Cooper has been promptly squelched by Mr. Cooper's own statement. Chairman Andrews1 management of the campaign has been energetio and intelligent, and has given satisfaction to the party leaders. The more many of the Clinton county Democrats think of the way in which their oounty ticket was nominated, the less they like the methods adopted by the powers that be to name several of the candidates there on, Dissatisfaction is reported in all parts of the oounty and s large number of Democrats are bo disgusted that they will not go near the polls. The proper way to rebuke the Lock Haven Democratic ring is to vote for the Republioan candidates, all of whom are worthy of support. J. N. Welliver was ioroed out of the way for the Legislative nomination to make room for a favorite of tbe Lock Haven Democratic ring. Bold methons were adopted to bring about this result and it was only accomplished a few days before the convention met Mr Welliver's lead being so great tbat itwasvery difficult to overoome. The ring knew wbatstrings to pull, however, and one of the best men in the Democratic party in Clinton county was sacrificed. It was done so completely that bis name was not even presen ted to the convention, although it was no seoret tbat be bad more tbau enough delegates promised to secure his nomination. Captain James W. Fredericks is the Republioan oandidate for Assembly and the people can vote for him with the assurance that he will faithfully represent tbem at Harrisburg. Terrible Drowning; Accident. Philadelphia, Oct. 13.-A special to the Ledger from Einkora, New Jersey, says: Solomon Fletcher, John Fletcher, Angelo Fletcher, brothers, CheafuB Merry and Alonzo Cannon, were drowned this afternoon by the capsizing of a boat in which they were bringing large pilings from the Silver Lake ice house. The bodies of Angelo Fletcher and Merry were recovered. The aged mother of the Fletchers was so overoome on hearing the news tbat she fell to tbe floor faoturing her arm. Her condition is pronounced dangerous. New Steel Plants for Coatanllle. Coatesvllle is likely to have two steel plants in tbe near future and the business ooudition of affairs there Is of a very promising oharaotex.

Minnie Boblnson tfomps From a Fifth Starr Window With Her Child In Her Arms-The Woman Crushed to Death But the Child Miraculously Escapes Injury. CmcAoo, Oct. 12.-By a fire which brake out in tbe Putnam European Hotel at Adams and LaSalle streets early this morning four lives were lost, and a score of persons had narrow escapes. The flro was caused by the explosion of a kerosene lamp which had been left burning in one of tbe hallways. Mrs. Minnie Robinson, who was sleeping in the front room on tho fifth lloor with her husband and baby, became orazed with fright, and rushing to a window leaped to the pavement with her infant in her arms. 8be was terribly crushed and lived but a short time, but miraculously the infaut escaped unhurt. By 2 o'clock tbe fire was under oontrol, and the firemen began a search of tbe house to see if any other casualties had occurred. In a room on the third floor Edward Peyton, a colored porter of the hotel, wsb found burned to a crisp. The search was continued and the firemen soon found in another room on the third floor tbe charred bodies of two other men, who had been caught in the trap and burned to death. Their names have not been learned. The names of those killed are: Mrs. Minnie Robinson, Tom Dowler, a barber, fl. K. Sams, formerly a Pinkerton attache, Edward Peyton, coloted porter. The total loss is about (63.000. The President at Indianapolis. iNDiAXAroLis, Ind., Oot. 12.-Tho President's trip from St. Louis last night was uneventful. The chief executive arose about an hour after tbe train roach- vestibule of "Hazelmere,,' about 7 o'clock Mr. and Mrs. R. S. MoKee and Baby MoKee put in au appearance and were warmly greeted. Beyond these and tbe reporters there was none to welcome tbe distinguished guest, this having been Mb earnest reqnest. The President occupied bis old pew at the FirBt Presbyterian Church, with Secretary Tracy and Mr. and Mrs, McKeo. At tbe conclusion of the sermon the holy communion was reoeived by the congregation, in whioh President Harrison participated. At tho conclusion of tbe services, the President stood for some time iu front efthechnrob, exchanging greeting with many old friends, who orowded about him to grasp his band and renew old acquaintanceship. After dinner tho President and Secretary Traoy reoeived a number of friends and then took a drive about the city. Otigin or the "Stovepipe." How few of us know that the stovepipe bat, which has come, to bo regarded as 'quite foreign, y'know," originated in the United States and was introduced into Europe by Benjamin Franklin. The old gentleman came to Paris in the Spring of 1790, wearing the simple attire of tho Quaker. A distinguishing feature of this was the hat, which has narrowed and heightened into tbe fashionable "plug'1 of to-day. It waalcw-orownod and broad-brimmed, and presented so quaint an aspect that tho Parisian dandies were disposed to make it the butt of their wit. Not so, however, tho rest. The leaders ol the French Revolution fancied that hat and they forthwith adopted it to bo their own. In three days' lime tbe Franklin hat was all the rage. And from that time-just 100 years ago-tbe tile haB grown in favor, although it is probuhlo that a machine more destructive to the bair and more useless for praotical purposes was never invented.

A Popular Candidate - Dynamiting old Iron-Death or aa Old Resident-One of the Best-Tbe Tramp Nuiianee-A Nice Birthday Present-Judge McGrea's Condition. Last Friday evening at 7:30 o'clock the whistle of a locomotive, which was approaching from tbe west, was heard in Renovo, and the report was immediately circulated that tbe Delamater train was coming. The Newt says men left the stroet corners, the store boxeB, the curbstones, the billiard balsl, and tbo divers other places of amusement; business men dropped their work; clerks let fall their yard sticks and their measures, and all joined the laity in a grand race to tbe passenger station to see the distinguished and honored sou of Republicanism. More than two hundred people bad oollected by tbe time the "special" had reached the depot,and all were greatly disappointed when they learned that it was not the Delamater train. One of the Best. We quotad Saturday from the Altoona Tribune a very complimentary notice of the Marie Greenwood opera company that appears at the Opera House to-night. Tbe following notice ia takon from the Altoona limes of the same dace: "On account of the bad weather a rather slim audience greeted the Greenwood opera company, in Boccaccio, last evening. However those who did brave the elements were very wall repaid, as the presentation . was of the finest. Mamie Taylor's impersonation of Boccaccio called for thB highest praise, as was also deservedly given to Adolpb Mayer as Leonetto, and J. Leslie Apple as Pietro, while Fiam-etto was easily upheld by tho. only Marie Greenwood." Sir.

Magruder, of tbe Confederate army, who held tho "Peninsula" against MoClellan In the spring of 1862, begins in the New York Ledger of October 18 a Berial entitlod "Jephthah's Daughter." The story is an exquisite and artistie adaptation of the Biblical tale. A Nice Birthday Present. Mr. Wm. G.

It consists of a silver water servioe, of the latest design and was purchased from the popular and reliable jeweler, X. B. Ricgler. It is needless to add that "Billy" is very proud of it. - At LargM Again.

That reminds us of something. Two years ago a gentlman in this city bought building lot for $550. He made a payment of 1100, then told his two boys, aged respectively twelve and fifteen years, that if they would meet tbe payments as they fell due until the lot was pais] for tbey might have it. The boys have sold daily and Sunday papers, attending eohool meantime, and tbe last payment of $50 baB just been made. They now intend to keep their eyes open and see what ean be done in the way of roal-estate speculation, Whether they lose their little property or make it the nucleus of a fortune remains to be Been, but the money certainly bas been more profitably spent than if it bad gone to the pool room.

Tbe shafting and other heavy pieces of iron in the old steam saw mill of Hopkins & Weymouth at Dunnsburg is being broken to pieces with dynamite.

A stock broser who was on bis way to the olty observed that one of his fellow passengers iu the 'bus was closely regarding him, and after a time tbe man leaned over and asked: "Didn't I see you in Liverpool in 1879?"'

The broker prrtested and objected, but finally, just to humor the man. be took the �5 note offered him, and returned tbe �4 ohange. The stranger soon left the 'bus and everything might have ended then and there if tbe broker, on reaching tbe office, hadn't ascertained that the "fiver" was a counterfeit, and that be was ��! out of pocket. The Hoprerae Court. WksmsoTON, Oot. 12.-The October term of tho United States Supreme Court will begin to-morrow morning. Tbe familiar face of the oldest member, Justiae Miller, will be missing. In the last four years or more there has never been a full bench, save for a very brief period last spring. The session to-morrow will be brief. A few preliminary motions will be received, unless the death of Justioe Miller, aa is generally expected, occurs before the court convenes, in which oaae an adjournment will be at once taken, out of respect to the memory of the Justioe. A dozen or more oases whioh had been ar-guod at the last term still remain to be decided, but no opinions will Joe handed down in any of tbem to-morrow, and it will probably be two weeks before tbe court announces any deoisiona.
