lb (he Republican Electors of Pennsylvania:
After consultation and correspondence with
the members of the Republican State Committee,
and by their direction, I hereby give notice that
the Republicans of Pennsylvania, by their duly
"chosen representatives, will meet Instate Con
vention at Ilarrisburg, Wednesday, August 19,
1891, at 10 o'clock A, M., for the purpose of plac
ing In nomination candidates for the offices of
Stale Treasurer and Auditor Oenerat, for the
nomination o etghtceneandldatesfor Delegates-at-Large
to the Constitutional Convention pro
vided for in the Act of Assembly approved June
19, 1891, and for the transaction of txtch other
bustnees as may be presented.
Notice is especially directed to the fact that, in
accordance with the provisions of the last men
tioned act, each Senatorial district is entitled to
a representation of three delegates in said Con
stitutional Convention, two of whom only canbe
members of the majority party in said district.
The electors of each district are therefore re
quested to make proper nomination for dele
gates to said convention, the rules governing the
nomination of candidates for State Senator to
In th Is connection the Chairman desires to call
the attention of Jlepubltcan voters to the rccom
mendatlon of the State Convention of 1882, that
"they allow the greatest freedom in the general
participation in the primaries consistent ullh
the preservation of the party organization."

ONE REASON WHY.
The considerations urged to account
for the large immigration Into this

Important is one seldom advanced;
the fact that the debt of many leading
foreign nations is increasing as that of
the United States steadily decreases.
The tabulated statemeut prepared by
the census bureau for the decade of
16S0 to 1S90 shows that the former has
increased more than two thousand
million dollars; the latter has decreased
half that amount. The fact that this
heavy increase of foreign indebtedness
is due largely to preparations for war
furnishes a further inducement to
, seek uland of peace and comparatively
jjjj small national expenditures.

tho platform with a doath grip. The train
sped on, with the legs of tho foolish young
fellow swooping along tho rails about four
inches ahead of tho front whoels of tho car.
Prico, tho onginoer, reversed his engine es
