The following editorial is from the Re' publican Advocate, of Wollsboro, Tioga county, and refutes the Democratio stories that the Republicans of that county will not support Hopkins for Congress: The Republican Advocate presents to you this morning the name of the next Congressman from this district, Hon. A. C. Hopkins, of Lock Haven, Clinton county. Mr. Hopkins is a man who is able to represent you in Congress with honor to himself and constituents. What is more he is the choice of this district for Congress and it is your duty to vote for him. The oandidateof Tioga was Hon. J. B. Niles, the most popular man among the people of this oounty and one of the ablest men within our borders. He waB our choice, and it is with feelings of regret that we learn of his being set aside and another man selected. That cannot be helped. We went into the Congressional conference with the tacit understanding that we would unqualifiedly support the nominee whoever he was, that the majority of the Conferees should decide and we be bound by that decision. The Representatives of tho Republicans of the 16th district have named Mr. Hopkins and it is the duty as well as pleasure of the Republican Advocate to give him the heartiest support, and urge the Republicans of Tioga to do likewise. A vote for Mr. Hopkins means your endorsement of the conduct of the party in Congress. It means that the act ion of Speaker Reed was right. It means that the bill known as the McKinley bill is right. It means above all that you still believe iu the principles of the Republican party, and that your faith is unshaken in its integrity; that you are proud to be counted a member. It will be urged upon some of you that you can bolt the ticket, scratch the ticket or stay at home and be a good Republican still. But you can't. Stand up like men and be couoted, and when the smoke of .Tuesday's conflict rolls away and each Republican has done his duty, the fires of victory will blaze along the whole line and Pennsylvania he indeed the Keystone in tho Republican column.

Tbe fronts of the buildings of Messrs. Scott A; Sons, ou Main street, are receiving tho finishing touches by the painters today, and aro without doubt the most attractive iu the city. The new brick building will be occupied by Harder'* gun store as soon as completed. Mr. L. A. Scott, who manages the erecting and repairs of buildings, for the firm, is deserving of the many compliments he receives for the good taste displayed in finishing these buildings in tbe manner he has. A few more such handsome fronts in the business portion of the town would work a complete transformation and add to tbe attractiveness of the oity. Preparing to Peed the Hungry. The preparations for the supper which Hand-iu-Hand Hose Company will give to-morrow night, aro being completed today, and tho Montour House will be filled to-morrow evening with guests as it has not been for a long time. The committee will spare no pains to serve an excellent supper and the indications are that the "boys" will be liberally patronized. HE WAS DETERMINED TO DIE.

A Sensible War to Get Married. From the Atlanta Constitution. A certain Georgia editor, who is also a real estate agent, a building and loan association director, an attorney-at-law, clerk of tbe Town Couuoil, and pastor of tho village ohurcb, was recently asked to marry a couple. He waa in a great hurry, and the oouple surprised him in the middle of a heavy editorial on the tariff. "Time is money," said he, without looking up from his work. "Do you want her?" The man said yes. "And do you want bim?" The girl stammered an affirmative. "Man and wife," cried the editor. "One dollar. Bring me a load of wood for it-one-third pine, balance oak." Potting NewX.tr. Into Industries. The McKinley bill seems to be pntting uaw life into every kind of already established business, aa well as stimulating new enterprises in all directions. Woolen and ootton mills that have been olosed a long time have started up again. In Easton $100,000 bave been subscribed to establish a silk and velvet plush faotory. In Sanford, Maine, another, to give employment to 1,000 operatives, is in process of erection, while several English manufacturers are at this moment in Philadelphia, prospeoting for a site to erect suoh a mill. These are indications of what may be ex-peoted in case tho tariff bill is not disturbed by the Democrats. A QUIET A lilt EST. Mo One Could Find What Ha Bad Canle Bis Arrest. from the New YorK Trltiuue. A West Shore Railroad ferry boat vrltb some 1200 passengers on board, was crossing the North Rivor at forty-sesond street. Iu mid-stream the whistle blow three long blasts, which after the lapse of a . minute were repeated. As there was no other craft within half a mile of the spot, those of (he passengers who noticed the unusual Bignals glanced curiously up at the pilot bouse. Again tbe tbreeLlong blasts split tbe air. The boat was Dealing ita slip on the Jersey Bide and all on board crowded forward to the extension ' gates. Tbe fourth time tha three long - blasts sounded, and tbe ungratrtled curiosity of the passengers gave way to a feeling of uneasiness. The slip was reached, the gOug rang once and the engines stopped. Two deck bands passed through tbe middle gate and closed it behind them. . Slowly the boat felt its way up to the bridge, pushing along from side to aide .like a man groping in a dark corridor. Tbe bridge was but three feet off when a Btern looking man ".n citizens elotheB ran down tbe inoline and leaped aboard the boat. Four policeman in uniform followed him. The instant they made the leap the gong rang twice and tbe boat backed oat of tbe slip. Silently and quickly the officers and their leader passed through tbe gate. "Here he is," said a deckhand, pointing out a young fellow with a face gbaBtly pale standing in tbe oentre of the orowd. Not anotberword was said. One officer took tbe youth's right arm and one his left, while their companions formed a guard front and rear to keep tbe people baok. The man in citizens olothea pat his hands in tbe prisoners pockets and took possession of his personal property. Then the pilot up above, seeing the majesty of the law being upheld, gave tbe go-ahead" signal and tbe boat waa soon tied to the bridge aud the passengers went their various ways and tbe yonng fellow with bis five captors went bis and not a question was asked. And that night some 1200 gentlemen and ladies went on their way to tbe Opera House to see the regal beauty, Lillian Kennedy, and the funny oomedian, Alfred Kelcy, in "Casey's Troubles," and during the three boors of mirth and merriment forgot tbe incident of the day. 1!

Hopkins, the Kepublioan oandidate for CoDgress iu this district, deserves the full Republican vote of the oounty. On his election tho Kepublioan majority in the next House of Representatives may torn. The 10th must ho represented by a Republican and that Republican must be Hopkins. Voto for him." SiiiKtnj Services at Mill Ball. There will ho preaching in the Presbyterian church at Mill Hall next Sunday at 11 o'clock a. m. The three County Commissioners, two Democrats and oue Ropublioau, mado and signod tho contract with Gallagher for repairing tho stouo work of the Island bridge, and tbe effort of tbe Democrat to saddle the whole responsibility of the transaction on the Kepublioan Commissioner is a little too thin, The Prothonotary's office has been in the bands of Democrats for more than twenty years. Large sums are paid there, each year, for Commonwealth oosts, by the oounty, on tbe order of tbe Commissioners; the same Commifsionerswho paid over 400,000 for a $28,000 bridge. Perhaps the oosts have been Increased in the same proportion. Investigate by electing Jef-feris, and change the line of desoont from the Brown family. The power of the Look Haveu ring was never more plainly exhibited than in the matter of forcing Harvey Kleckner off the Demooratio ticket and placing Lyons Mussina thoroon.

Exasperating ohant of an impeonnious i dude: "Listen to my tailor of woe," Bopklns for Congress. Philadelphia Inquirer Editorial. The contest for the Republican nomination for Congress in the district oomposed of Lyooming, Clinton. Tioga and Potter counties bas been happily settled, Albert C. Hopkins, of Look Haven, will Bueoeed Henry C. HoCormiek, who declined a re* nomination. Mr. HopkinB is extensively interested in tke lumber business, and has given employment to twelvo or fifteen hundred men annually. He is popular with his employees, having long ago adopted the system of making cash payments for wages weekly. He was born in 1837, voted for Abraham Lincoln and has been a real Lincoln Republican ever since. There is a difference between tbe genuine article and the spurious brand. Mr. Hopkins will be opposed by Mortimer F. Elliott, of Tioga oounty. Mr. Elliott ran as Congressman-at-large on the Pattison tioket in 1882 and was elected. But he is without hope this time. The Sixteenth distrlot oan easily tarn out a 5.C00 majority for Hopkins, and it ought to do it. Now that the long contest is over let everybody get to work. The Republicans have a duty to perform to their State as well as to their diatriot, and in piling-up the majority for Hopkins let them get out a full vote for Delamater, Waires and Stewart.

Words for Veterans: Veterans of the Civil war listen to what Senator Robinson said in the State Sanate when Paltisou'a pauper grave message was Bent into that body: "I would rather be tho lowliest soldier who ever wore tbe Union blue, crawling into a nameless grave in the most obscure oorner of tbiB Commonwealth, then be His Excellency crowned with the Gubernatorial honors and the author of a message like this." Is there a single soldier in this county with so little self respect as to vote for the man who would have sent their needy comrades Into pauper graves ? ;
