A WORD TO OUR PATRONS.
The present volume of the Beptjb-
licas will Boon close. In a few
weeks we shall enter upon oar fifth
volume. While we feel thankful to
oar subscribers for their patronage,
we' feel compelled to call upon, those
of them who are in arrears, to come
forward promptly and meet their
dues. It is a small matter to each
,one,yet the aggregate is of very
great consequence-to us. It is no
small and inexpensive job to run a
paper the size of the Republican.
Thi daily expenses are heavy,which
must be met promptly, whether ve
have the money or not. If we can
not' get at oar own money, by reas
on of its being in the hands of our
readers, we are obliged " to borrow
and pay a heavy interest while
many of our readers are using our
money without allowing as any in
terest whatever. Daring the past
six months mosey matters have
been very close, apd it has taken
about one half oar timeto look after
thefinaicial interest of oar paper,
to make arrangements to meet de
mands, fcc.,so much so that we have
not had the. proper amount of time
to devote to the editorial work that
wrought to have. As a conse
quence our readers suffer also. Now
this should not be the case. We
know that if the people think of
this, and look at the matter in this
light, they will come forward and do
their part promptly. We desire and
mast, give more time to oar editor
ial duties, and we therefore ask our
patrons to respond promptly, in qr
der that we may be enabled to meet
our demands without loss of time
on our part There is hard work
to be done this fall in oar county,
and we wish to give all oar time to
the work if we possibly can. You
can assist us greatly in the work by
settling your "back pay'' and by re
newing promptly. We ask this fa
vor for your own good, as well as
onrs. Please give it your attention.
General Spinner .and Secretary
Bristow have come in collision, and
their dispute has been referred to
the President. .The trouble has
grown out of General Bristow's
thoroughness in enforcing the re
trenchment policy by weeding out
supernumerary clerks hitherto em
ployed. Upon this basis General
Bristow has been thinning out -the
incompetents from the various de
partments of the Treasury. Inevit
ably he came to the '-redemption
bureau," created by a recent act of
Congress and presided over by
Treasurer Spinner. General Bris
tow says that the number of clerks
in that department can and must be
reduced, but the venerable Spinner
lays .his hand on his heart and calls
Diety to witness that they shall not
be reduced, or if they are he too
wtli resign. There being no com
promise, the President is asked to
arbitrate. The general belief is that
Bristow is in the right and will be
THE OCEAN CABLES.
The cable or 1860, it will be re
membered, was broken last year,
and could, not be used for the trans
mission of telegrams business hav
ing during the winter and spring
been confined to the. other English
and French cables. The announce
ment is now made that on Tuesday
the broken cable was successfully
repaired, and is now in working ord
er. All three arc in operation, and
the Anglo-American Cable Company
will soon lay a fourth. The opposi
tion cable, the section of which be
tween Halifax; and New Hampshire
was finished this week, will also be
completed across the ocean in a
short time. With five cables be
tween England and America, there
is no reason why the present exorb
itant tolls should not be reduced.
CHICAGO FIRE DEPARTMENT.
Chicago is in earnest in her efforts
to prevent the recurrence of the
great fires that have visited her.
Action is to be taken at once to pro
hibit the erection of the wooden tin
der boxes in the fire limits and the
force and efficiency of the fire de
partment are to be increased. 'forth

"derwriters atftheir meeting on Sat
urday said that the companies inter
ested in the Board would shortly
discontinue business in the city un
ljsslh'e Fire Department was thor
oughly reorganized and its present
incompetent head dismissed. It re
mains to be' seen whether all this
virtuous indignation will last.
Mayor Havemeyer has at last re
ceived a rebuke from Governor Dix.
His attempt to abolish the office of
Armory Commissioners does not
meet the Governor's approval, and
the latter politely tells him the May
or of New York kaa no such power.
This is a little matter, comparative
ly , but it is very acceptable to the
New Yorkers, as it strengthens their
hope of being able soon to lay up
the troublesome mayor on a shelf,
for a season at least.
Exports from Philadelphia have
increased largely during the past
few years. The increase for the
year 18723, over that of the pro
ceeding year, was more than four
millions ol; .dollars. For the year
1873 itlie increase was over eight
niillions'of-'dollars, making an in
crease since the close of the year
1871-2 dfmore -than twelve mil-
lions-of dollars. So much for the
eatablishmeat ofthe American line
" ofocean steamers.
A new and deserved honor says
the Cleveland Leader, has fallen
upon the head of Mr. Henry M.
Stanley. The letterspf Dr. Living
stone and the testimony of his ser
vants concerning the liberality and
kindness of the American journalist
to the veteran' explorer, have made
the English people quite ashamed of
the jealous suspicion with which
they greeted Mr. Stanley on his re
tarn from Zanzibar, and they arc
now loading him with' every mark of
honor and respect. More than this,
the London Daily Telegraph has
united with Mr. Bennett, of the
New York Herald in fitting out a
strong and perfectly equipped ex
pedition to go to Central Africa,and
there if possible solve- the remain
ing problems of geography, and in
vestigate and report on the slave
trade. It is designed in fact to com
plete the work left unfinished when
death laid its unwelcome hand upon
Dr. Livingstone.- 1 ae command of
this important expedition is to be
given to Mr. Stanley, who, a3 the
London Telegraph says, "will rep
resent the two nations whose com
mon interest in the regeneration of
Africa was so well illustrated when
the lost English explorer was redis
covered by the energetic American
correspondent. In that memorable
journey Mr. Stanley displayed the
best qualities of an African traveler;
and with no inconsiderable resources
at his disposal to reinforce his own
complete acquaintance with the con
ditions of African travel, it may be
hoped that very important results
will accrue from this undertaking
to the advantage of science, human
ity and civilization."
Nothing -of course could please
Bennett better than to play a part
in sqch a scheme as this and it is
said besides famishing his part of
the outfit he will place his yacht at
the disposal of the expeditioa to
carry the party to Zanzibar. It is
greatly to the interest of science
and humanity that the geography of
uentrai Africa De settled ana tiiat

on that country be broken up. If
Stanley can lead an expedition
which shall contribute directly to
either of these results his country

lecturer and applaud him as he de-
The Cleveland Herald says there
has been a law suit in Buffalo grow
ing out of the expulsion of a passen
ger from a street car, for the offense
of spitting on the floor of the car.
So far as the general principle is
concerned, spitting on the car floor,
steam car or horse car should be
held as a nuisance not -permitted.
Our average American rail car is
utterly unfit for a cleanly man or
woman to walk through. But on
our steam railways women, in a
measure, can be protected by devot
ing certain cars to tnem and tueir
male attendants,provided such male
attendants are not "exoectorators."
And the spitting nuisance can par
tially De avoided by paying for a
seat in a drawing room car, where
every seat has its spittoon. But we
insist upon'it that a spitting man is
unfit company for ladies and gentle
men and should not be permitted
to spit on the floor of a streetcar or
it on a steam railway he should be
compelled to stay in the smoking
PLAGUE OF LOCUSTS.
It is goad to learn that the plague
of locusts by which Minnesota has
been visited is not so senous as the
first alarming accounts have led the
country to suppose. Instead of the
utter devastation of the State, it is
now estimated that only about ten
per cent, of its area is affected, and
that the decrease of the crop from
this reason will not be much more
than eight per cent, of the general
average. This distress, of course,
remains very severe among those di
rectly involved, and the contribu
tions of the charitable to relieve
will be well employed. But those
who feel the importance of a crop
this year have as yet no reason to
count Minnesota out of their calcu
Governor Baxter is reported to be
very angry at the action of the con
vention in declaring that all officers
from-the lowest to the highest shall
be elected, as his Democratic friends
had promised that his term should
be scheduled over by constitutional
provisions, ircrsons'who havezcon-
versed with hint say he threatens to
disperse the convention with the
militia if it interferes with his term
of office. The Democrats held' a
caucus Friday night to ascertain
how many members of the conven
tion could be relied upon to disband
the militia and thus prevent Baxter
from interfering with tbeni.
POISONED BY POTATO BUGS.
One day last week Dr. J. H. Fish
burn, of this city, was called to
Dunnstown to attend a small son of
E. H. Forgis, who had been taken
suddenly very ill. Upon the Doc
tor's arrival he found the lad in
very high fever his pulse running
as nign as 10B and at times it was
impossible to count it. Upon the
first examination the Doctor was
confident that it was specific fever
and the symtoms were more like
poison from some member'of the
belladonna family. But to all in
quiries he could not ascertain that
the boy had eaten or drank any
thing that would produce tho above
result, nut in alter conversation
the father referred to tho manner in
which his little boy had been in the
habit of catching potato bugs, and
laying them on a flat stone, would
take another stone and crush tbem.
This information-gave Dr. Fishburn
an idea that it might be possible
that the boy had been poisoned by
inhaling the effluvia, and immedi
ately administered medicine that
showed he was correct ic his suspi
cions of poison, and alsojgavc him
control of the disease. This is the
first case of the kind that has been
brought to onr notice, and we trust
tuas una may act as a warning to be
careful how they dispatch these
troublesome and poisonous pests. It
was fortuoate for Mr. Forgis and
family that they'called in Dr. F..
whose skill, no doubt, drove sorrow
from their house. Lock Haven Enterprise.
ANOTHER DAM DISASTER
Immense Damage to Farms
Bridges and Railroad
Sprq-gfield, Mass., July 13.
Details are coming to hand of a sec
ond nood in Hampshire county,
Mass., caused by the giving way of
tne lactory reservoir or tne village
of Middlefield. The Union gives
tno following particulars:
The reservoir was situated on
Middlefield brook, which empties
into the West branch of Middlefield
river at Middlefield switch. It cov
ers nearly one hundred acres, and
was built about thirty years ao by
Uriah Church, father of the present
owners The reservoir was made
by raisins the nlain joad from Mid
dlefield Center to .North Becket
hills. On either side of the stream,
forming the sides of the reservoir,
the dam was raised auotit twenty
feet for a distance of about forty
rods. The dam eave way once be
fore it was finished, but since the
completion it bas been regarded as
safe. For the purpose of furnishing
additional water for a large new
mill now being erected, it was the
intention to raise the dam tno feet
the present season. The reservoir
was used for storage of water- for
the Church Brothers' broad-cloth
mills, for William Blush's felloe,
thrill and stave factory, and for the
mills owned by Oliver Blush, and
formerly used as a crorsted mill, bat
lately as a grist mill. inese were
all the mills 'situated on the Middle-
field branch. Below the .reservoir,
between Middlefield switch and
Chester, there is, upon the West
branch of the Westfield river, into
which the Middlefield stream enters,
West's woolen mill, formerly used
as a shoddy mill, and at Chester
there is the Hampden emory mill.
From Middlefield switch the flood
poured down toward Chester, where
it did very serious damage, ne
waters swept over farms, gardens
and woods, and several houses were
moved some distance. The heaviest
loser at Chester is Dr. Hcmans Lu
cius, who estimates h"i3 lo3s at $10,
000 by the partial sweeping away
of his emory mill. The water went
through the lower story, carrying
off about $2000 worth of emory.
The water also did considerable
damage to the Hanum Edge Tool
company. The water power of this
company is entirely destroyed. The
Lucius farm of fifty acres was badly
damaged. Also the large farm of
Newton Cowles. Nearly all of the
valley residents in the vicinity of
Chester have suffered more or less
by damages to farms and gardens.
Bradford Palmer's barn and Samuel
Otis's shoe shop were moved some
distance, and William Fay ifc Son's
furniture warehouse was badly
flooded out. The building was un
dermined and turned partly
High water continued at Chester
for about an hour. The town of
Chester suffers heavily in loss of
bridges and damage to roads. Four
bridges were carried out and to re
place these bridges will cost about
$10,000, besides several thousand
dollars to repair roads. The Boston
and Albany road is very badly dam
aged for a distance or nearly twenty
miles. Every bridge between Mid
dlefield and Huntington is vrbolly
or partially destroyed. The road
bed is also washed out in many pla
ces, and travel between this city and
Albany will be suspended for sever
al days. "The wires are still down
beyond Chester and no definite in
formation has been received as to
loss of life at Blush Hollow, which
is now thought must have been considerable.

estimation he holds Lake Chautau

"Although this region cannot be

"From Long Point there is a splen
did view of the lake, extending a
distance of more than 12 miles to
the small town of Maysville.
THE DRIVES, FISHING, BOATING, &c.
"Nowadays no one thinks of walk
ing: that is too healthy an exercise
to be indulged in; but if such a
thing as fine wlks were needed,
the whole neighborhood of this lake
abounds with them. The drives are
the finest I have ever seen around
such a small lake, and they are quite
numerous and all enjoyable. The
fishing is always good, but at this
season remarkably so. According
to the evidence of the oldest inhab
itant, no such fishing bas been ex
perienced for many years. The boat
ing is as good as water from two to
five miles in width and twenty -four
miles in length can afford. The wa
ter is clear as crystal, the shore is
pebbly, and the beaches made for
children and women to bathe in.
Men can bathe or swim anywhere.

his way to Europe he saw President
Grant for the first time. This is his
first trip down South, and he speaks
in the highest terms of onr people
and our resources. He spoke of the
good people of Richmond, Va., and
how kindly he was received in that
city. When Mr. Waite first heard
of his appointment he was just tak
