It seems from the Democratic con
ference in Chicago that the managers
of the party are fjr thec l i ticket and
the old result.
The character of this season's coru
husts indicate a mild winter, and the
number of theia beepeaks a great Re

The late Vice President liobirt was
the sou of a country school-leaciier, and

Mr. Bryan asys the people fail to
make the proper distinction between a
standard dollar and a credit dollar.
Bryan assumes to be very learned about
different varieties of dollars, but unless
their valus is one hundred cents the
American people have no use for them.
Says the Harrisburg Telegraph:
"Those Insurgeuts who are going to
Washington to protest against the seat
ing of Senator Quay will have to ex
plain what they intend to do with that
half a million dollar that they have
raise! as a corruption fund. Then the
chickens will come hoaie to roost."
Thocgh without a national reputa
tion when nominated for Vice Presi
dent, Garret A. Hobart was equal in
every way to the duties of the position,
anl illustrated, with honor to himself
ani advantage to the country, theca
picity of an American citizen to rise at
sh rt notice to high responsibilities.
The death of Mr. Hobart creates a
vacancy in the office of Vice President

presidential election. Senator Fry,
President pro tern, of the United States

The contrast between an Adminis

meet the ordinary expenses of the Gov

conducting an expensive war, is able to
buy back millions of dollars' worth of
the bonds, is a very sharp one, and
should furnish a very instructive object-lesson
to the voters of the country.

Colonel McCli re, of the Philadel
atWphia Times, said to a New York
Tribune reporter the other day that he
regarded the rece. "lections as one
of the cleanest -cut .ategical moves
ever made in the arena of American
politic. As a military genius like Na
poleon or Grant would plau a cam
paign, the Republican managers plan
ned theirs, and their opponents march

manoeuvres, with the natural results,
that they are now at the mercy of their

The trial of the suit brought by the
City of Pittsburg against State Senator
William Fiinn for $200,000 damages by
reason of the defendant having unlaw
fully obtained from former city officials
$113,000, was commenced before Judge
White, without a jury, Monday morn
ing The case has excited great public
interest, the people being auxious to
know whether the great reform boss re
ally did beguile the city officials of the
pjople'a cash, and it is to be hoped that
th j trial will bring out the facts. The
testimony elicited at Monday's hear
in $ disclosed that Fliun had gotten
$118,000 from the city officials, but
whether it was private funds of the of
ficials, or money belooging to the city,
was not fully shown, although a pretty
good guess can be formed.
Aocixaldo is pretty hard pressed
t'teae days. He may elude the troops
for a few weeks longer. Possibly he
may escape from the island altogether,
and go to Asia or Europe. The end in
any case, however, will be the same.
Most of his army will be captured, and
the rest of it so thoroughly dispersed
that it will never get together again.
We presume the Government at Wash
ington would not make any especial
efforts to bead Aguinaldo off if he were
trying to escape to the outside world.
The prime object is the capture of bis
army, and this can not be delayed
much longer. It is pretty clear, in any
event, that the Tagal rebellion is on iu
last legs, despite the aid it got and ex
pected still to get from the great party
whose victory in the recent elections all
the Filipino rebels prayed for.

Filipino Congress Scattered Sever to Xeet
Ma Hi la, November 24. Bautista, Pres
ident of the Filipioo Congress, presented
himself to General MacArthur to-day and
formally renounced all further connec
tion with the insurrection. Ha waa one
of the influential Filipinos who hesitated
at the beginning of the war as to which
side to cast bis lot. He was offered a
Judgeship of the Supreme Court, but de
clined. He now announces that be desires to
accept the position, and ay the Filipino
Congress and Cabinet are scattered, never
to reassemble. Koine of the members, he
adds, have returned to their home, while
others are fleeing for safety. M any of the
Congressmen have resigned, and be be
lieves the Filipiuo soldiers will lay down
their arm everywhere a soon as they
learn the truth.
General Otis summarizes the situation
in Luzon in a dispatch to the War De
partment in which he says that the Filip
ino Government can no longer claim to
exist, that its troops and official are scat
tering, and that Aguinaldo is in hiding.
The dispatch follows:
"Claim to government by Filipino can
be made no longer under any fiction ; its

Akkapolis. Md., Nov. 28. If Lloyd
Lowndes, Jr., had not had a twin brother,
Richard, be might not have been married
at Chillioothe, Ohio, last week. The
twins are aons of Governor Lowndes, of
Maryland. The bride was Mis May
Campbell Quiun, daughter of J. C. Quinn,
vice president of tbe First National bank
Lloyd and Richard Lowndes haveoften
been mistaken for each other. Richard
has been married several year. Re
cently he was going west when hewa
approached on the train by a young man,
who slapped him familiarly on tbe back
and said : "Hello, Lloyd, you are going
to pass through my town, and I want you
to stop off and spend th night with nie."
Richard said that be was not Lloyd, but
tbe other insisted that be was. Richard
allowed himself to be persuaded to stop
over at Chillioothe. Among tbe people
he met there was Miss Quinn, to w hom
he was introduced as his host's old col
lege chum, Lloyd Lowndes. Tbe ac
count of tbe visit interested Richard'
brother so much that Lloyd entered into
correspondence with Miss Quinn, and
fiually went to Chillioothe to visit ber.
It is related that Miss Quinn diti not dis

DEWXT CUT TO TEZ QUICK.
Admiral Eeieat CritieUm ef Hi Action
ia Presenting Eons to Hi Wire.
Xrs. Dewey Deedi Property to
th Admiral's Boa.
Admiral Dewey, who wa harshly crit
icized for making a deed for tbe Wash
ington resideuoe presented to him by tbe
American people over to hi wife, gave
the following statement to the news
"Wbeo I made over this house to my
wife I thought I was doing the most
gracious act that an American gentleman
could. It seem that I waa mistaken.
Mrs. Dewey understood belter than I did
the feeling of the people, and at first de
clined to permit tbe house to be trans
ferred to her. She did consent only after
an arrangement bad been effected where
by not only tbe house, but her entire per
sonal fortune, which is considerable, was
to ultimately go to my son George.
"I would never have believed It possi
ble that the American people who lately
applauded me could so suddenly turn on
me. Where I was a hero two month
ago I am now reduced to such a position
that certain people cannot say things too
villanous, too scurrilous about roe; and
no one defends me. If I bad known bow
much trouble, how much abuse waa to
ome upon me as the result of accepting
this house, I would never have taken it.
"When I sailed into Manila bay over
dangerous groan d, with death and even
worse in front of me, I little thought in
such a brief period after I returned to my
native land the American people would
countenance such monstrous attacks up
on me because I was doing what I con
sidered to be the most gracious thing I
could do, to present my home to my
"I do not intend to arraign the entire
American people for the act of a few.
But I am cut to the quick. I never have
felt so badly in my life. I want the
Americans to know it I want them to
know that if I could I would return to
tbe contributors to tbe fund the bouse
purchased with their money. If I should
continue to feel as I do now, I would cut
It alL throw up everything, go on tbe
retired list and go abroad. In fact, I feel
so discouraged and so worn out that I
scarcely know what I will do. I hardly
feel like living jn a country where 1 can
be attacked in so outrageous a manner
without being defended by anyone.
"The American people are not through
with ine yet When the American people
wanted me to command a fleet and to
ail into Manila harbor, I did my duty
as I saw it aud as I believe a sailor
should. And if thry want me now, or at
some future time, to command another
fleet my life and my sword are always
at the dixposal of my country. But"
aid tbe admiral, pointing to a local
newspp r containing a number of letters
abusing him, "when I think that in all
probability the writers of these letters are
tbe very ones who, two months ago, were
professing the greatest admiration and
love for me and are now trying to rend
me and my domestic happiness to pitces,
it disgusts me with the whole affair. And
if it were not fur my country, I would
wish that I bad never fongbt tbe battle
of Manila, a I now wish I bad never
taken this bouse.
"As for conveying it to my wife to
avoid tbe payment of any debts orobli
gationa, I can only say that I have never
had any debts. I have always had a
horror of them and of bills ; and as far
as I know to-day, I have but two bills in

who bad been in the bands of the Fili

officers, have arrived at Manila during

100 of them from General Wbeaton. They
were a motley-appareled and bearded
company. Some were ill, aud had to be

Buencamino has been lodged 1n com
fortable quarters at the police station,

allowed to communicate with him. He
is classed as being the most slippery per
sonage connected with the insurrection.
He was a colonel in the Spanish army,
and a traitor to Spain.
At tbe time of tbe first insurrection he
tried to sell out to the Filipiuos, and his
present imprisonment excites no sym
pathy among bis own people, while the
Spaniards think it is mistaken leniency
for the Americans to refrain from shoot
ing him on the Luneta, the fate dealt out
to better men in the anti-Spanish upris
ing. Aguinaldo' youngest child, who was
recently christened at Tarlac with great
ceremony, died, and waa buried at Day

NATION PAYS TRIBUTE.
Pater-sox, N. J., Nov. 25. All that
was mortal of Garret Augustus Hobart
thirty first Vice Presideut of tbe United
States, waa borue to the tomb thia after
uoon. The funeral honor for thia most
distinguished son of New Jersey were
simply in keeping with the character of
the man, but tbe tear-drop of thousands
of sincere mourner paid greater tribute
to bis memory than any funeral pomp or
ceremony that human ingenuity could
Tbe city of Paterson never mourned as
it mourned to-day. There never was a
greater gathering of New Jersey' fore
most citizens to pay funeral honors to
one of her sons while the nation was
represented by the President the Cabi
net aud the chief men of the legislative
and judicial branches of tbe government
Tbe stranger in Paterson ueeded only to
glance at tbe face in the silent sorrow
laden crowd around the church this af
ternoon to appreciate tbe force of these
clofclu g words of Rev. Dr. Magie's eulogy:
"Wear to lay iu the grave, 'the bouse
appointed for all living,' these mortal re
mains, but in our hearts Garret A. Ho
bart live and will live while life re
mains." Paterson is one of the great ist manu
facturing cities in tbe oountry, but there
was no whirl of wheels in iu great silk
mill to-day. Every industrial estab
lishment was closed, and the army of
toilers were out on the streets in Sunday
attire to join in tbe last honors to the man
w hom they respected and loved above all
of their townsmen. Flags everywhere at
half staff; drapings of black ou dwellings
as well as on public building; bit of
crepe or black rosettes on ooats these
were silent evidences of the universal
grief. But the voice of the city was
beard in tbe tolling of the bells, d leful
bells. Their monotonous dong, doug,
dong, mocked the glad sunshine and the
dancing breeze. It waa the deep note
of a sorrowful city and a mourning na
tion. What contrast to that gladsome
summer day only a little over three year
ago, when Paterson went wild with joy
in welcoming home Garret A. Hobart as
tbe Republic n Vice Presidential nomi
nee. All the arrangements for Mr. Hobart'
funeral were carried out without a hitch
or a marring incident Crowds of people
flocked to c'arroll Hall, the Hobart resi
dence, ud lined the streets leading to
tbe Church of the Redeemer hours before
tbe time set for tbe funeral.
During the services the chief magis
trate of tbe country bowed bis head in
his band. He waa visibly agitated.
There was scarcely a dry cheek in tbe
crowded edifice, and the widow was ap
parently the most composed.
There were thirty-two pall-bearers,
eight representing the United States Sen
ate, eight representing the House of Rep
resentatives, eight personal pall-bearers
selected by Mr. Hobart two months be
fore his death, and eight Senate police,
who carried the casket
In the throng were Senator from States
that were Territories before the war and
for years after. There were Hoar, of Mas
sachusetts, representing tbe old, and Bev
eridge, of Indiana, representing tbe new
in national life. There were John W.
Diuiel, of Virginia, representing the
Confederate soldier, and Hawley.of Con
necticut standing a a type of the Union
veteran, each of them to day as Senators
mourning tbe loss of their presiding offi
cer. There was Jones, of Arkansas, arm
in arm with Frye, of Maine.
From every State came men of broad
culture and prominence in national af
fairs to honor the memory of tbe illus
trious American, whose acknowledged
ability bad won bim a foremost place
among men of the time.

Fraud ia th Jury List.
Distrct Attorney A. H. Woodward, of
Clearfield county, swore out warrants,
Fiiday charging Sheriff David D. Gin
gery aud Jury Commissioner Millard
F. Johnson and Joseph A. Phillips, with
perjury, conspiracy and common law
misdemeanor in drawing the jurors for
the December term of court which was to
convene the first Monday cf next month.
This charge grows out of an investiga
tion made Thursday by Singleton Bell
and G. M. Bilgsr, attorneys for the Clear
field Republican, the editors of w hich
paper are defendants in a suit on the list
for trial at this term.
On examination of the records in the
Prothouolary's office it was found that
apparently '12 of the 24 name on tbe
Grand Jury drawu bad never been in
the whtl and must have been substi
tuted when the December jury was
drawn. Of the 50 jurors drawn for Oyer
and Terminer and General Jail Delivery
Court 44 names, it is alleged, are fraudu
lent The name are in a large measure made
up of the Democrats who have been sup
porting Matt Savage in his factioual
tights in the Democratic party in the
county, although there are some who
have not been supporting him of late.
Tbe Republican, notwithstanding its
name, is a Democratic paper, but its ed
itors have uot trained with Mr. Savage.

United State Government Hot on Trail
of Three Spaniards.
Officials of tbe United States Govern
ment after months of secret investiga
tion, have discovered the explosive used
in blowing up tbe war-s'iip Maine in Ha
vana Harbor, on February 15, l.S.
It was guncotton.
S-vin hundred pounds of it were used,
and it was the property of tbe Spanish
It was sent from Barcelona, Spain, to
Admiral Manterola, the Admiral com
manding the port of Havana, a month
before the destruction of tbe Maine.
Six cases, each containing 350 pounds
pf guncotton. were received at Havana.
The contents of two of the boxes, 700
pounds, were either stolen from the mag
azine where the stuff was stored or taken
away with the knowledge of the officials
Admiral Manterola' records will un
doubdtedly show tbe names of bis subor
dinates who had direct control of the ex
plosives, and in that way tbe identity of
the authors and executioners of tbe plot
to destroy the Maine may be discovered.
Tbe Government at Washington has
been or soon will be in possession of all
the facta relating to the new discoveries.
It will piobably solicit tbe assistance of
the Spanish Government in securing the
punis'tment of the authors of the crime.

For the Disposal of Gen- Agninaldo.
Washington Nov. 27. Considerable
interest is being taken inofficial circles
as to tbe disposition of Aguinaldo in case
of capture. Some persons say that tbe best
solution would be his death in action, but
this is not expectel. Should he be cap
ture I, Geu. Otis will undoubtedly await
instructions from Washington as to the
treatment he should accord him. Should
Aguinaldo escape to Hong K-ng tbe
United State could not as a matter of
rightask for his surrender, aud tbe Pres
ident would therefore most probably de
termine to leave tbe insurgent leader
alone. Infoonneclion with the disposition
of Aguinaldo in case of capture, tbe au
thorities would have to consider tbe ef
fect of the policy upon the natives.
