To the Republican Electors of Pennsylvania:
After contultatlon anil correspondence svllh
the member of the Republican State Committee,
and by their direction, I hereby give notice that
the Republicans of Pennsylvania, by their duty
chosen representatives, sMl meet in .State Con

1891, a 10 o'clock A. it., for the purpose ofptac
ing in nomination candidates for the offices of
State Treasurer and Auditor Oenerat, for the
nomination of eighteen candidates for Delegates-at-Largs
to the Cbmtltuttonal Convention pro
vided for in the Act of Assembly approved June
19, 1891, ii(J for the transaction of such other
business as may be presented,
A'otice is especially directed to the fact that, in
accordance with the provisions of the latt men
tioned act, each Senatorial district is entitled to
a representation of three delegate in said Con

Members Of the majority party in said district

In this connection the Chairman desires to call
the attention of Republican voters to the rtconi'

"they allow the greatest freedom in tlte general

OliABKSON ON QUAY.
Iu an interview with Hon. James S.
Clnrkson, recently assistant postmaster
general, that Benutor Quay's resolve to
resign the chairmanship of the Repub
lican national committee is not a now
fangled Idea, but one long entertained
and only prevented by urgent requests
of members of the national organiza
tion. While the-senator -cannot bo
blamed for wish lug to surrender the
trust wo again repeat it is not for the
interest of the party that ho should
retire all the criticisms of the Mug
wumps to the contrary notwithstand
ing. The warfare on the senator has
been waged by Democratic journals
for the express purpose a securing his
retirement and for the reason that they
are mortally afraid of his energy and
generalship. Iu fact, It Is the boast of
the Now York World that the opposi
tion to Senator Quay originated In its
columns and of course the inspiring
cause was Quay's ability as a leader.
Democratic opposition could bo expect
ed, but when so-called Republicans Jolu
in the attack it looks very much like
a rule or ruin polioy a policy on the
George William Curtis order which

prefers Democratic victories to Repub
lican successes unless, forsooth, ho
can do all the bossing. Well, the groat
leader who won the light against such
heavy odds in 1883 will doubtless retire
and the reins, when surrendered, will
probably be tendered to Mr. Clarkson,
who Is able and well qualified for the
arduous duties of the position. In fact,
next after Senator Quay, Clarkson Is
tho best fitted for the position, and
with tho loyal support of tho Republi
can host ho will make a magnlllcent
fight provided ho should bo chosen
to lead in the great contest of
next year. A Republican victory Is
notouly po33lblo but probable prov
ided, of course, tlie Republicans of tho
Union enter Into the light with spirit
and courage. The light cannot bo won
with divided ranks, or with factional
disturbances; thero is but one road to
victory and that lays through tho velo
of unity. There must be forbearance
all around the board. The rule of the
hour should be forgive and forget.
Let each Republican resolve to ac
quiesce In the wishes of the majority;
In other words, to do all his fighting
before and not after nominations have
been made and victory In tho state
and nation will bo assured. The graml
old party of progress has redeemed all
its promises and long before 1802 rolls

The othor day I wus convoking with ono
ot our moat influential and prominent citi
zens, whoso opinion on most any subject of
publio interest 1 hold in high ostoom. Dur
ing tho courso of our talk tho members of
tho W. C. T. IT. and its raid upon tho
whiskey tratllo was brought up, und tho
gentleman in question procooded to criti
ciso its mombers very severely, and went
so far as to stylo them as nltogotber too fa
natical and visionary.
Now, this is all wrong. Whilo I am not
a member of tho Union, yet wo must recog
nize tho great fact that tho women who
compose it are an earnest, gonorous and
philanthropic body, working in tho best in
lereuot society. Uhoy do not act upon
tho theory ot tho revivalist, who drives re
cruits into enmp. No. Thoir's aro tho

and they'll win by theso if tho gauio is to

Don't imagine, dear reader, from these
romarks that I am a temperauco man, in
the sonso usually accepted by tho VV. O. T.
U. I am not. But, novortholess.the fact re
mains that tho noble work voluntarily ac
cepted by the3e wonion is for our indi
vidual good. Every crltic of tho Union,
whon pinnud right down to it, ha3 been
forced to acknowledge that ho or shn had
not gone into anything like a caroful con
sideration and examination of tho thoorios
oxpoundod by tho W. O. T. U., and that's
jut whore tho difficulty lies, and what
makes their work tho harder.

Turn your attention to tho fair sox.
Wore their battorioa directed with the same
amount of onorgy that they liavo exerted
in tho causo of tomporanco in tho elevation
of fallen women, I think they would bo
crownod with a greater degrco of success.
And it would bo no new departure, oithcr.
I am informod that tho womon of Wilkoa
Bsrro oxerted thoir i-fforts in this respect,
and met with a great dogroo of success.
What a grand field for them in this town,

but thero must be tomo sort of provision

social systom of our various churches
should throw its protecting arm about
llut will thoy do it ? Thai's the question.
On tho train tho other day I overheard
two prominent Domocrnts Discussing tbo
political situation, from their remarks,
and tbo inferenco to bo drawn therefrom, it
seems quito probable, if not a forcgono
conclusion, that the coming Democratic
convention will endorso Judgo Oroen for

point I don't boo what difference It will

But why bring tho judiciary into par
Every talr-mlndod citizen, with the
probablo exception of tho political office
holder, wUl agroo with me that tbo quali
fications of n candidate for tho Judgeship
should not ba estimated from a political
standpoint. Thoro aro other attainments
necessary, and which should Influence tho
cltizon iu summing up tho qualifications of
a judicial candidato.
Judgo Croon's ability as a lawyor has
never boon questioned, even bytho men
who dluor with lilm politically. But, on
tho othor hand, I bavo nuvor beard any
thing but tho highest pralso for his attain
ments as a practitioner at tho bar. Hinco
his olevatlon to tho bench, ho has honored
thatoxaltod position, and his derisions will
bear tho closest scrutiny and criticism of
tho most learned deciplo of Blackslono
now at the county bar. There Is no Demo
cratic candidate who has boon mentioned as
his suocessor that Is his equal In legal at
tainments, and his social charactorUtlca are
of tho highest order.
Honestly, I think It would b-j a shrowd
move on tho part of tho Domocrats to en
dorso Judge Green for renomination.
