Harrlsburg, Aug.16. "When the seven
Israolltlsh priests, obeying the orders
of Joshun, started upon their novel
method of warfare against the Pales
tine town bearing trumpets of rams'
horn and blowing therewith they could
have been no more confident of what
should come to pass at the time of
their blowing the seventh blast "early
about, the dawning" of the seventh day
than was National Committeeman
Harrlty of the result of the bugle blast
that he sent from the walls of his
castle of stone and mortar at urban
Overbrook a week ago.
,. Air. .Harrlty has for some years been
acustomed to go ahead In the Demo
cratic party without waiting the bid
ding of some son of Nun or any son
of anybody and he did not, therefore,
nave tne inspiration wnicn gave conn
dence to Joshua's cornetlsts. Hut he
blew quite as furiously and just as
confidently as they. He proclaimed
a straddle plank for the Heading con
vention, and by the token of that
straddle he adroitly thought to save
himself. He believed that one good
old time wind ripper from his bugle
would array about htm all his old
henchmen In his favor and put to rout
all old and Indeed all new enemies,
should there be.
It cannot be concealed Mr. Harrlty's
past successes In Pennsylvania Demo
cratic politics have made of him an
absolute bold warlor. He has cultivat
ed a powerful sight of self-confidence
and of this no better proof could be
submitted than his cool, If not saga
clous, demand from Overbrook that the
Reading convention should tactically
and for harmony's sake desert the Chi
cago platform and the Nebraskan ora
tor by writing upon Its banners: "This
is not the year for discussing national
questions." But Mr. Harrlty's poli
tical foresight has not Improved by
his vacation from political work.
Within the week since his call from
the Overbrook castle ten counties have
made responses and each one In turn
has more violently opposed the com
promise proposition than Its predeces
sor. These answers have been brought
out by the accident of convention or
county committee meetings nnd with
no view of .king special cognizance of
the natli al committeeman's demand,
but tliey have been notable and mean
ing responses nevertheless. Bedford
county replied negatively and vehem
ently. Bucks county, edging upon his
own, most earnestly shouted no.
Greene not content with asserting its
determination to continue In the open
for the Chicago platform denounced
Mr. Harrlty for remaining on the na
tional committee and Instructed Its
delegates to Reading to vote for his
Franklin county elected aa Its county
chairman one of Its most outspoken
Bryan men, young Mlnehart, a rising
lawyer, popular campaign speaker and
an out-and-out antl-Harrlty man. Col
umbia county, led by Representative
Creasey, who headed the Democrats on
the door of the house of representatives
last session, adopted as a whole the
resolutions of the York county conven
tion, drawn by ex-Lieutennnt Governor
Black. Allegheny's response has gone
to every corner. Latest, Fayette and
Lawrence counties demand the Chi
cago platform, and denounces strad
dlebugs. Clearly the rule of Harnty
as a platform writer, Is over.
What of the Philadelphia's chances
for retraining nominal leadership
through membership of the national
committees? This may best be an
swered by giving such information as
has been gained from unprejudiced
sources during the past week. A com
pact body of local leaders made up
from various counties has determined
that the.Readlng convention shall not
only take eagerly all that Is visible
of what some dissenters call the Bryan
dose hut th'at it phall no longer leave In
doubt the wishes of the Pennsylvania
Democracy as to representation In cam
paign direction, nominal or real.
The leaders have not yet determined

tree upon appUca'u -s
what method the convention should
take to depose Harrlty, but from what
they say it Is certain they perfer a
plan which in Itself will servo as a
clear declaration of unalterable devo
tion to Bryan. It Is not unlikely that
the conclusion reached will be to havo
the convention formally declare a va
cancy and recommend to National
Chairman Jones the appointment of
some such pronounced antl-Harrlty and
Brynn man as Colonel James M. Quffcy,
of Pittsburg, to fill the vncancy.
The party rules make no provision for
the contingency of a vacancy, but as a
state convention Is the supremo party
authority it can make suitable regula
tions for any emergency and the Rend
ing gathering will be sufficiently ver
satile to confront any condition. Dur
ing the halcyon period of Mr. Harrlty's
reign he run conventions that way, and
he will probably find that his succes
sors have no objections to following
precedents that may bo to his disad
vantage. Ex-Lieutenant Governor Hlack, of
York, and Editor D. A. Orr, of the
Hirrisburg "Patriot," nre leading the
movement to depose Mr. Harrlty. Both
predict the Reading convention will de
clare his seat In the national commit
tee vacant, and nt the same time re
nlllrm the Chicago platform. Mr. Orr
says "the Rending convention will show
this political laggard ( meaning Mr.
Harrlty) how to gel out of a place
where he Is not wanted, nnd by its
drastic, action may give needed Instruc
tion to narrow and nmbltlous politic
ians who would make all party ends
servo their selfish desires to the detri
ment of a, patriotic organization and
the harm of public morals."
Mr. Black says that while he did not
uniformly ngree with Mr. Harrlty while
he nctcd with the Democratic party,
he has followed his leadership with
pleasure on many occasions. "But I
cannot follow him out of the Demo
cratic party," Mr. Black adds. "A
Democrat might feel a very high per
sonal esteem for such Republican lead
ers as McKlnley, Quay, Ilnnna or By
num, but he would not wish to plaoe
the management of his party In their
hands. They are not Democrats."
A score of prominent Democrats who
have visited the state capital within
the past ten days hold and express
views similar to those entertained by
Messrs. Orr and Black. Indeed, only
a few have been found thus far who
havo thought that Harrlty should re
main and these have excused his hold
ing on by saying he should not retreat
under fire. At the sameNtlmo they agree
that he could save himself from much
embarrassment, perhaps, humiliation,
by gracefully yielding to the demand
of his opponents and make way for his
Tlmothy O'Leary, of Pittsburg, and
other friends of the national commit
teeman allege that there was an "un
derstanding" throughout the last cam
paign with National Chairman Jones
and that the latter was wholly satis
fied with the noa-actlon of Mr. Harrlty.
An attache of the state Democratic
headquarters In this city, who Is con
versant with much of the offlcial work
of the Bryan managers, declares that
this statement has no foundation In
fact. Not only did not Mr. Jones have
a friendly understanding, but ho re
garded Mr. Harrlty as hostile, disap
proved of his personal and political be
havior and would now be glad to be
formally requested by the Pennsylva
nia Democracy to recognize his suc
cessor. The same gentlemnn states that Mr.
Harrlty has not nttended a single
meeting of the committee since the
election of Mr. Jones; that he has ren
dered the chairman assistance in no
way and that when he did not refuse
requests made by the chairman he Ig
nored them, which is considered worse
by his foes. Being a political prophet
Is a perilous avocation nnd the Tri
bune correspondent shall not try to
become one. But he may judge and
tell of this political situation as he has
found It after careful inquiry. It may
be summed up thus:
Mr. Harrlty will be badly beaten at
Reading, unless he can save himself
by some Napoleonic movement not
now at all likely to be made within
the next fortnight. As to a straddle
platform, there will be no compromise
The Maryland resolutions find no favor
among any delegates with whom the
correspondent has talked, except a few
Philadelphlans and a few from Alle
gheny who have personal reasons for
wanting to oblige Harrlty. The Read
ing platform will reaffirm the Chicago
platform, congratulate and compliment
Bryan and It may select for special
approval the Chicago-Bryan position
on trusts, the tariff and the currency.
ONLY FIVE PER CENT. MAY WORK.
Deputy Attorncy-Gcncrnl Interprets
tho Convict Labor Iituv.
Harlsburg. Pa., Aug. 16. An Inter
pretation of the new law that limits
the employment of convicts In certain
branches of Industry has been given by
Deputy Attorney General Elkln. The
act provides that only 5 per cent, of
the number of prisoners can be put to
making such articles as nre manufac
tured elsewhere in the state.
The deputy attorney general holds
that each Institution must be consid
ered separately, and the percentage
mentioned means 5 per cent, of the
number of Inmates In each Institution.
Some of tho Institutions took the
ground that they could employ In each
one 5 per cent, of all tho prisoners In

Bellefonte, Pa., Aug. 16. It has been
stated here on pretty good authority
that Governor Hastings has aspira
tions to succeed "W. C. Arnold as the
next representative in congress from
the Twenty-eighth district. Tho gov
ernor himself has neither affirmed nor
denied tho rumor. Should it bo true,
there will undoubtedly be one of the
hottest congressional lights experi
enced In this district since Andrew C.
Ctirtlh won his last election against
great odds. It is now a settled fnct
that Colonel J. L. Spanglor will again
try for tho Democratic nomination, nnd
Got'tysburg,, Aug. 16. At the Demo.'
orntlc county convention today, alt the
districts were fully represented. Hon.
M. Howard Dicks, of Rending towrjshlp,
presided, nnd the .resolutions adopted
endorse William JMDryan for tho pres
idential nomination, in 1900. John D.

for Jury commissioner.
THE BIG STRIKE
Tbrec Thousand Men Go Out at One
MULE 0R00MINQ CAUSES TROUBLE
The Drivers Claim Thnt Since Adon
rold Was Made Ilondqnnrtors for
Mules Thoy Work Two Hours for
Wllkes-Barre, Aug. 16. A Hazleton
special to the Times says: Three
thousand men in the employ of the
Lehigh and Wllkos-Barre Coal com
pany In what Is known ns the Honey
brook district are on strike. The trou
ble broke out on Saturday when thirty
five drivers went out, giving ns their
reason that since the Audenrlcd stables
were made headquarters for the mules
they are compelled to go there each
morning and evening, for which they
received no extra pay. It Is said they
made a demand for remuneration for
this two hours' extra service, hut It
being refused, they finally concluded
to strike, which they did. In addition
to this they stationed several of their
number along the road leading to the
stables In order to prevent others tak
ing out the teams.
This morning the strike assumed a
more serious aspect when 300 of the
striking drivers nnd their sympathiz
ers paraded from one colliery to an
other and n,s each works was reached
the entire force threw down their tools
und Joined the strikers. When the
hist, or sixth colliery was reached
something over 3,000 men had gone out.
POLICE CALLED OUT.
The company, fearing that trouble
might ensue, ordered out the entire
Coal and Iron Police force, each mem
ber thereof being armed with a rapid
firing Winchester rifle. These armed
policemen were met nt various polrits
by the parading strikers, but as the
latter offered no violence, no trouble,
There was a clash on Saturday be
tween Gomer Jones, the superintend
ent, and some of the men. Mr. Jones
called for assistance and the first to
respond to the call was Oliver Welsh.
He had no sooner reached the super
intendent's side than a stone was
thrown from the crowd, which struck
Welsh on the head, cutting his scalp
and Inflicting a painful wound. Mr.
Jones was roughly handled and was
struck and kicked several times.
Superintendent Lawall left Wllkes
Barre at an early hour this morning
and Is now on the ground. The strik
ers positively refuse to deal with Super
intendent Jones. They will hold a
mass meeting this evening, when they
will submit their grievances to Gen
eral Superintendent Lawall.
ARMOR PLATE COMMITTEE
Members Aro Investigating the Cost
ol Erecting nnd Maintaining a Plant
for the Use ol the Govornmcnt.
riethlehem, Pa., Aug. 1G. The mem
bers ot the Investigating committee
who are trying to find out for the
United States government what It costs
to erect and maintain a plant In which
armor plate for the nation's big vessels
can be manufactured, came here to
day. Tho committee Is composed of
Commodore Howell, Captain A. II. Mc
Cormlck, Chief Engineer J. II. Perry,
Chief Civil Engineer M. T. Endlcott,
Lieutenant T. P. Fletcher nnd Lieuten
ant W. I. Chambers, of the United
States navy, and C. W. DeKnlght, sec
retary of the naval committee of the
United States sennte.
The party were met nt the station by
Lieutenant J. P. Meigs, the Bethlehem
Iron company's armor expert. One of
the committee stated that their Inspec
tion would probably take up all of the
week. They will not remain together
more than a week. ,
This committee Is Interested only in
the manufacture and cost of armor
plate and will confine Its Investigation
to that particular branch of ordnance.
The members will endeavor to learn
whether or not It would be advisable
for economic reasons for the govern
ment to erect Its own plant; what It
would cost to build and maintain such
a plant, and, If the Bethlehem Iron
company desires to dispose of Its plant
,to the government, the committee will
report whether the sum the company
may ask is a satisfactory one.
Late this afternoon the visitors were
taken to the ordnance works by Lieu
tenant Meigs, who showed them
through tho armor plate department.
They witnessed the tempering of big
plates and of tube for thlrteen-lnch
guns. Every process In the manufac
ture of plate was carefully watched
nnd voluminous notes were taken. The
company's officials showed the visitors
every courtesy and all Information
asked for was promptly given. The
members of the committee say they
are greatly pleased with the plant.
VOLUNTARY RAISE OF WAGES.

Chester, Aug. 16. Notice was posted
yesterday at the mill of George C.
Hetzel & Company, at Front and
Broomall streets, this city, that the
wages paid by the company In 1892
would bo restored on September 6. This
news was received with delight by the
employes, and was the more appreciat
ed as the restoration was done without
solicitation on their part. Hetzel it
Company manufacture a fine grade of
worsted goods, and employ about 200
hnnds. Since 1892, when the hard
times began, the company has mado
two reductions In wages, aggregating
20 per cent.

English Capitalists Hunt to Invest in
n Hie Enterprise.
Pittsburg, Pa., Aug. Id. English cap
italists are willing to build the Pitts
burg and Lake Erie canal, which has
been surveyed and declared a feasible
route to the lakes. John E. Shaw, secre
tary of the canal commission, admit
ted the rumor was true today, and
said the commission had authorized
the printing of 6,000 reports, of 300
pages each, with 100 illustrations. One
half the number are to be sent to Lon
don for distribution among investors.
An English syndicate has had renre-

and these have gone carefully over the
ptoject. The Pittsburg and Lako Erie
canal Is Intended to connect the Ohio
river at Rochester with Lake Erie at
Ashtabula. It has been figured that
the amount of ore and coal traffic will
alono pay dividends on the Investment.

A l'rcnk Among Flowers with
Almost Human Action.
From the New York Herald.
Now and ncatn, in exploring Ameri
can woods and swamps, botanists have
come across floral curiosities that al
most brldze over tho great gulf that
divides tho animal and vegetable king
doms, says tho Designer. Ono of these,
to he met with nowhero In tho world
save In North Carolina, Is scientifically
classified as dlonoea musclpula, but
Is colloquially known as "Venus' fly
In appearance the extraordinary
plant is pretty but unassuming, the
leafless ilower stem, running from six
to eight Inches In height and surmount
ed by a cluster of five petaled blossoms,
rising erect like a rosette-llko bed of

leaves, fringed with delicate bristles
and hinged together on one side. The

alights on these bristles In anticipa
tion of a feast, but at the first touch

Under the stimulus of the victim's
struggles the tiny glands with which
the Inner walls of the trap are furnished
pour forth a secretion which Darwin
analyzed as a vegetable gastric Juice,
resembling that which insures diges
tion In animal life. Under the Influ
ence of this curious fluid the fly is ac
tually digested alive and Its Juices
being extracted the trap doors are re
opened and the skeleton Is flung out.
The scientists declare that the plant
unquestionably lives upon the Juices of
Its victims, but one or two expert
florists take exceptions to this state
ment. It is worthy of note that, al
though the habit of the plant Is carni
vorous, experiments have proved that
It lives longer and thrives better when
so Inclosed that no Insects can reach
It a superabundance of Its favorite
diet apparently rendering It even more
delicate than It Is by nature. The set of
muscles controlling Its leaves are said
to resemble those of the human eyelid.
