nomination of eighteen candidates for Delegates--at-Large
to the Constitutional Convention pro
vided for in the Act of Assembly approved June
19, 1891, and for the transaction of such other
business as may be presented.
Notice is especially directed to the fact that, in
accordance with the provisions of the last men

a representation of three delrgates in said Con
stitutional Convention, two of whom only canbe
members of the majority party In said district.

In this connection the Chairman desires to call
the attention of Itepubllcan voters to the recom

participation in the primaries consistent with
the preservation of the party organization."

Thk Philadelphia Star says that the
experiments of a few clays ago with the
great twelve-Inch American made s teel
gun having proved a grand success, we
may hereafter look to our own gun fac
tories for coast defences. The big gun
tried on Saturday showed its capacity
by sending a shell twelve miles. Now
that that point has been settled, we
shall have no further occasion for the
services of Mynheer Krupp's great es
tablishment. What has become of"that bankrupt
t treasury cry? The bottom has already
dropped out of that tub. The treasury
is not bankrupt the government is
funding its 4 per cent, bonds at 2 per
, cent., and the country everywhere Is
prosperous and happy. Tho prophets
of evil have come tq griefTand tho free
trade falsifier is being shown up in his
true colors. Some people wilL yet dis
cover that It don't pay to lie.

Was that tariff added to the price of

to pay an increase for his goods?
At the beginning of this century
calico coat 63 cents a yard; it cau now
bo bought forS cents. At any distance
from the seaboard, It was then difficult
to get more than three shillings 37J
cents for wheat. Now It is in the
neighborhood of $1 anywhere in the
Uulted States. Then It took one nud
a half bushels of wheat to buy a yard
of calico. Now one bushel will buy 20
yards. In 1800 coarse brown sugar
cost 18 cents a pound. Now Hue
white sugar can be bought for 6 cents.
Before the war 6 cents was the cus
tomary price for eggs in the greater
part of the country lying west of the
Alleghenlea, and it took from two to
three dozen eggs to get ayard of calico.
Now, two dozen eggs will buy from
eight to 12 yards of catlco.
