LITTLE ENDORSED FOR JUDGE. Large Attendance—But Little or No Excite ment. The Democracy of Columbia County held the first convention under the new rules in the lower contt room on Tuesday. There was quite a large attendance but owing to the fact that there were no contests, very little interest was manifested, The meeting was called to order at eleven o'clock by R. G. F. Kshinka, who was the Chairman of the last convention. A temporary organization was perfected by nam ing John G. Harman, reading Clerk, and W. B. Allen and H. M. Hamlin, recording clerks. The reading clerk called ofif the list of townships and the returns were handed in by the return judges. The returns from East North Conyngham were not presented owing to some trouble with the election board. A permanent organization was then made by electing W. B. Allen, chairman, H. M. Hamlin and C. A. Kleiin, recording clerks and John G. Harman, reading clerk. The chairman was authorized to appoint a committee of three on resolutions after which the adjourn ment was taken until i :3o in the afternoon. AFTERNOON SESSION. Chairman Allen rapped for order promptly at 1:30, but some little time was lost before the convention was in working order, as no one seemed to ktiow how to proceed under the new rules. W. T. Creasy, R. G. F. Kshinka and W. 11. Rhawn were appointed a committee on resolutions. The reading clerk then called the roll of judges, which was as follows : Beaver—Frank Hauck. Benton Boro.—B. E. Long. Benton Twp.—Eli McHenry. Berwick, N. E. —A. C. Drum. " S. E. —I. F. Chamberliu. " N. W.—M. H. Frantz. " S. W. —Jno. P. Stevens. Bloom Ist—W. W. Barrett, Jr. " 2nd—J. F„ Welliver. " 3rd—W. B.

" S.—John Klinger. As there was no contest and in order to expedite the work, the following motion was adopted ; That the official tally sheet in the hands of the County Chairman having been made up from returns furnished him by the different judges, that the opening of the re turn envelopes be waived, and the figures as found on the tally sheet be accepted as correct. The vote was then read from the tally sheet, after which the chair man announced that the following having received a majority of the votes cast were declared the nom nees of the convention : President Judge—Robt. R. Little. Congress—A. L. Fritz. Senator—Wm. H. Rhawn. Assembly—W. T. Creasy, Wm. Chrisman. All were given power to select their own conferees. County Surveyor—Boyd Tres cott. C. B. Jackson, C. B. Ent, J./W. Perry, C. A. Kleim and P. W. Gor deu were elected delegates to the State Convention. The committee on resolutions then made their report which was as follows: Resolved , that the Representatives of the Democrats of Col. Co , in conven tion assembled reaffirm the adherence to the principles as annunciated in the platform as adopted by the last National Democratic Convention at Chicago. Resolved., that we favor the making of laws which will equalize taxation, ballot reform and many other things demanded by the people of Pennsyl vania. Resolved , that we insist upon the maintenance of the present school ap propriation. Resolved, that we condemn the action of the past two legislatures for their extravagance in squandering the people's money for their corruptive steals, padded pay rolls and their sub serviency to the interest of monopolies. We most emphatically endorse the course of John G. McHenry as County Chairman for his untiring efforts in perfecting the organiza tion of the Democracy of Col. Co. We recognize in him a man of un questioned integrity, of strict hon esty and feel proud of the superb manner in which he has perfected the present organization of the Democratic party of the county, and of the record which he has made as an organizer which places him among the first in the state, and under his leadership in the coming campaign we will roll up an old time majority for the coming Democratic Governor of this state. We endorse the course pursued by our State Chairman John M. Garman in behalf of true Demo cracy. We endorse the course pursued by our Congressional Delegation in behalf of the independence of Cuba, and renew our expression of sym pathy for the Cuban Patriots and hope that they will soon be a free and independent people. We rejoice in the grand victory gained by Admiral Dewey at Manila which marks him as one of the greatest heroes of all times. And we hope the American and Cuban forces will display the same heroism in the coming contest in Cuba. We endorse the course pursued by our Senator, the Hon. J. Henry Cochran and the Members of the Legislature from this county in the last session. And we recommend the Hon. Wm. T. Creasy as the next Demo cratic candidate for Speaker of the Assembly for the State of Penna. That State Delegates shall vote and support a representative Demo crat for Governor and one who will favor a straight forward honest government at Harrisburg. Resolved, that we tender the pub lic request to the Democrats of Northumberland and Sullivan counties to join the Democrats of Columbia and Montour in the movement of holding their annual county conventions in the month of June, thereby giving local and con gressional nominees a longer time in which to organize and canvass their respective districts. Resolved, that the proper num ber of Conferees from this county be selected by the Hon Andrew L- Fritz to meet similar Conferees of this Congressional District, with power of substitution, and with instructions to use all honorable means to secure the nomination of the said Andrew L- Fritz for Con gress. This concluded the work of the convention, after which short speeches were made by Robt. R. Little, W. T. Creasy, W. H. Rhawn and William Chrisman. The speakers were all loudly cheer ed.

BUFFALO BILL- His Famous Wild Wost Exhibition Coming Soon—Cheap Excursion Rates on all Railroads. Lieutenant General John M. Scho field, retired, and recalled from pri vate life to act as military advisor to President McKinley during the war with Spain, said recently : "Whether this war be of brief or prolonged dura tion it has Gone one thing of incalcul able value to the country, and that is, it has aroused the patriotism of the people which lies too long dormant in times of peace. In fact, almost the only institution to excite the military spirit in the youth of the land has been a show—Buffalo Bill's Wild West—and in that respect Col. Cody's exhibition is a real institution, rather than a show." Was ever another such compliment paid to any sort of an amusement ex hibition ? When its character is un derstood, Gen. Schofield's compliment is justified. It is distinctively an in ternational military tournament of real soldiers from the cavalry and artillery of England, Germany, Russia, Cuba and the United States. Over ioo Indian chiefs and warriors from the six great tribes show the savage soldier ; Mexican Vaqueros, Guaches of Argentine; Arabs and Moors, Asia and Africa have also seen service in the Armies of their respective countries. The band ot Cuban veterans, wounded and maimed until their fighting days are ended, still can sit in the saddle and show the stamp of men who halve fought so valiantly for free Cuba. A superb military spectacle, Custer's Last Battle pro duced with spiendid special scenery, and hundreds of soldiers and savages in mimic combat as realistic as the real, is still another thing that wil' ex cite in everyone tne desire to see the greatest of all exhibitions when it ap pears at Danville June 20. Excur sion rates will be made on all lines of travel to the Wild West on that day. CASTOR IA For Infants and Children. The Kind You Have Always Bought NOTICE. R. H.
