Titusville Herald (Newspaper) - February 19, 1886, Titusville, Pennsylvania EW1LINES SiffifiW NEW OPdSTMASTER BREVITIES Q Oi 3TV 0 LINENS and good Lines Linesof CARPET and COTTON Special things in CRASHES n the CAliPET Depart jnent we have SPECIALTIES PRICES RULE FLETCHER Pi APPOINTED BY PRESIDENT CLEVELAND M N Allen Draws the PrizeHow He Got ThereHis Public Line of Post masters from Madi son Down People comiug to tha after this juay expect to see almost any time a new mail at the wheel sorting letters distribut ing the mails including the happy valentine selliug stamps foreign aud domestic filling out money orders and best of all drawiug a comfortable salary with the regularity of j clockwork from Uncle Sam for all tbese j duties The news flashed from Washington yesterday that Mr il S Allen has been ap pointed postmaster by the President It was a singular coincidence that one or two or three leading Democrats had disappeared from their usual haunts here aud had probi ably just time to get breakfast at the Eobet House take a coupe and reach the White aud tell the President what they wanted aud what their constituents had petitioned for The President as soon as he recognized the late delegate to the Chicago Convention and Democratic candidate for Congress and the QUEEN CITY KATING f etaesflay Friilay EVENI5T6S iudies Admitted Tree Admission 15 ci Ge ills

said that geutlameu McKiuuey Fertig aud Caldwell have accomplished their mis siou to Washington aud carried their point The nesc step is the confirmation which as there IB no removal but a vacancy or will j be iu less than a week is not likely to en1 counter the objection of Senator Edmunds j which refers to holding back coonrmations where removals have been made aud the reasons are from the Senate Should this nomination be acted on without delay Mr Allen may gat his commission before the end of this mouth Tna new postmaster is a graduate of iladison College and was principal of an academy In this state for some He came to the oil region twentyone years ago and engaged in the real estate business and after wards in oil refining He was one o the original stockholders of the Titusville Daily Courier and afterwards its conductor editor and owner As such he became im mersed in local and general politics Mr Al len sold out the Courier to the Hz3ua but i he has since been busy with his pen and in every political campaign he starts into ruettlesom activity as a charger who hears the bugle call to battle His petition was largely signed by men of ail parties and uo other papers were before the department ex cept his own and those of M Dime Esq For so important an office for which any member of the Democratic party is free to aspire it is natural there should be a lively competition but Mr Allen was ahead with his petition and the leaders we have referred to were already pledged to his support They have followed the thing to the Presidents door and brought away the nomination for their favorite and there is little reasoa to doubt that Mr Alien will take Col Cogswells place at an early day and use his best efforts to make an efficient and accommodating official Our TitusvUle postofnee was established in the early part of itadisous administra tion so says a veracious chronicler of local events and Jonathan TitusbelocgTng to the first families of the

whole territory and not nve houses or families in Tittwville The mails were earned once a week on horseback from Erie io Frarikiis I The weekly papers brought here were the Crawford Messenger the Erie
