Til, polls will open at 7 n. m. and
close at 7 p. in. on Tuesday.
A full Republican vote will elect
tho ticket, from Gregg down.
Every Republican In Pennsylvania
should resolve forthwith that no
social or business demand shallprevent
him doing his duty at the polls on
election day. He should begin to ar
range his aflalrs bo that he will not
only be at home then, but free to go
and cost his ballot.
The Republican ticket is going to be
elected, of course. Let it be by a ma
jority which shows that Pennsylvania
is still the Keyetone Stale, which
holds the arch of liberty secure. It
ought not to be called n duty, but a
privilege, of every enlightened and
y progressive man to assist in that.

Al. G. Fiold's Irrepressible Minstrels
showed In Lomison's theatre last night tq
the larost and most onthusiastlo audience
of tho season. Tho houso was literally
packed from pit to dome, and to say that
the howling audience thoroughly onjoyed
itself for throe hours is putting it only too
ralldiy. To use n popular phrase, tho show
was "way out of sight," and tho rousing
applauso accorded tho members of tho
company was tbo most hilarious over beard
in Greenshurg. Tho show throughout was
a clean delineation of negro minstrelsy,
minus tbo various ohjoctionablo features
found in a show of that kind. Mr. Field
has gathered about him a lot of people
overy ono of whom Is an artist in his lino,
as was ovidonced by tho elegant perform
ance rendered last night. Major Kibble,
tho lightning gun manipulator, of this
place, whs received with thunderous ap

If tho Domocrats aro Enthusiastic
Over tho Prospects of tho Ap
proaching Election Thoy
Fall to Show It.
The first demonstration tho Democrats
havo hold In town this full, and tho only
ono thoy will hold this campaign, was
Bprung upon tho pooplo last night and was
anything but a rally. Tho old-time hustlo
and bustlo was not apparent, there woro no
cheers, tho candidates and visiting speakers
slid into town through a stillness that
indicated a lack of enthusiasm and tbo
whole tbo affair was exceedingly luko
Hon. Robort E. Wrinht, tho Democratic
candidate for Auditor General, arrived in
town early In tho ovenm, accompanied by
ox-JudRO Harvey, of Lehigh, and took
quarters at tho Ferguson Ilnuso. Hon. A.
L. Tilden, Democratic candldato forStato
Treasurer, arrived later, alono, and with
but ono townsman to escort him to "tho
house of my friends," as Johnny Nash
termed Forguson's opera houso in his ad
dress. Shortly after 8 o'clock tbo visitorF,headcd
by tho T. A. B. band and escorted by about
thirty homo and county Democrats,
inarched from tho Ferguson Houso, clown
Main street to tbo theatre Whon tho
visitors ontored tho theatro it was empty,
A fow inlnutos after their arrival about ono
hundred Democrat! and Republicans
entered and took scats. Meanwhile the
band tried todiscourso some cheerful music
In front of tho theatre. Tho visitors and
tholr escorts stood between tho wings on
tbo slago, ovidontly depressed by the
meagienoss of tho attendance. Hustlers
wero sent out and tho band continued play
ing until finally the lower part of tho
thoatre became somewhat filled, but it was
a poor houso. Tho band tbon entered tho
theatre and thoro was more music and tho
crowd swollod a. little moro, tho arrivals
being principally boys. AVhen Harry
Muldoon thought tbo crowd was as largo
as tho band could mako it ho stoppod to tho
footlights and introduced Hon. Robert
Emmet Wright, of Allontown, as tho first
Tho montion of tho speakers name pro
voked a murmur of applause. Tho recep
tion was not enthusiastic. It was not
cordial. It was applause such as peoplo
givo when thoy fool bound to show respect.
Mr. Wright ovidontly sized up tbo re
ception and did not feol callod upon to
relor to it. Ho oponod his address by
referring to tho grandour of tho sconory
and tho hum of industry in this tectior !
and told of how bo located in Mahanoy
Piano when theso parts were a vast wilder
ness. His visit last night was tbo first since
that timo. After painting "old Schuylkill"
in radiant colors to got tho audionco in
accord with him, Mr. Wright turnod his
attention to Bardslny and tried his best to
show how Sonalor Quay and othor Repub
lienns had conspired with tho convict to
rob tho Commonwealth. Tho address was
a lecturo on Bardsley and Quay. It was
Interesting and, in many instances, amus
ing. H tried to illustrato tho method by
which Bardsley robbed tbo Commonwealth
aud charged Quay and tho Ropublican
party with being co-conspirators.
In one part of his address Mr. Wright
said, "That Grogg and Morrison may bo
puro men I would not question for a mo
ment," but ho asserted that they would not,
if elected, bo ablo to withstand tho pressure
of the bossos. Tho speakorthon asked bow
many Republicans thoro wero In tho hall
and how many would support hlmsolf and
tho farmer from Erie. He wuntod to know
if thoy woro not ashamed of Quay and tho
Ropublican party and appealed to them to
Join the Democratlo party in tho causo of
In concluding bis remarks to tho Repub
licans Mr. Wright referred to tho
failure of Gen. Hastings to securo tbo Re
publican nomination for Govornor and
said, "The Republican party was a great
party, and it is now (somo hardshell Dem
ocrats on tho stage squirmed in their seats)
but wo beliovo you aro wrong In the prin
ciples (smiles from ,the hardsholls) you
would apply to tha government. And yot
we know you are just as honest as wo are."
The squirming of the hardsholls was here
ronowed with vigor, but tbo speaker added,
"But thoso men (tbo bossos) havo put to tho
front mon who do not ropresnnt you,
Hastings will uovor bo nominated for Gov
ornor unless by consent of tho bossos,
Hastings will bo a boss candidate noxt year,
because ho has now boon ..mouldod to suit
tho wishes ot tho bosses."
Ex-Judgo Harvey was tbo noxt speaker.

"Squaro Timbor" Noyns, bo said, was
elected Stato Treasurer by tbo Domocrats,
but ho was a poor, weak old man and could
not withstand the pres uro brought to bear
by Quay and tho other Republicans. Judge
Harvey was quite funny at time, vorv
fortunately for tho audienco for his re
view or tho threadbare charges against
Quay, Boyer and McCamant would havo
been exceedingly tiresome had ho not in
jected somelfunny stories. Ho told a story
of a man who had n coon ho wished to got
rid 01, but was loo tender-hearted to kill it.
Ho met throo boys of extraordinary intel
ligence and docidod to give tho coon to ono
who would givo tho most satisfactory an-
swor. '"Why aro you a Domocrat?'" ho
asked tbo first boy. The answor was, "be
cause I am In favor ol a government of tho
peoplo, by tho peoplo and for tho pooplo."
J.ho second boy was asked, "Why aro you
aGreenbaeker?" Tho answer was. "Bo-
cause our folks havo no monoy and I want
tbo government to mako paper money, so
wo may all havo plenty." Tho third boy
was then asked, "Why aro you a Republi
can ?" Tho ready answer was, "Bocauso I
want tho coon."
"And that is tho way with tho Republi
cans," continued the ppeuker, "they aro
Republicans because thoy want tho offices
and tho spoils."
Hon. A. L. Tilden, ol Erio, tho Demo
cratic candidato for Stato Treasurer, was
next intr duced. Mr. Tilden was roferrod
to during tho ovoning astlio "fartnor candl
duto." As a public speaker ho is a genuina-
J"hn A. Nash, Eq., of Poltsvillo, mado
tho closing address and caused signs of
relief when ho announced that ho would'
not speak of Quay, otc. He directed hig
attontion to the Democratic county ticket
and said ho favored tho election of every
candidato on it. Ho said he had nothing to
say against Judge Oroen ; that ho was a
gontlemnn, a scholar, an honest and im
partial man, and an ablojurist. But what
ho said ot Judgo Green ho wantod applied,
to Candidato Wadiingor. Ho also spoka
favorably of Deputy ShcriiT Smith and
said ho had no doubt that gentloman would
mako an excollont Sheriff, but ho also had'
tbo same confidence in Woll. Aftcrspeak
ing for tho rost of tho ticket Johnny jumped
into a discussion of why a constitutional
convonticn should bo hold. Ho floundered'
Bomewhat in making his explanations, but
finally eucceedod in getting at tho end of
his ropo and flarry Muldoon closed tho
meeting by urging that tho whole Demo
cratic ticket bo supported on oloction day.
