William S. O'Brien is a gradaate of
Duff's Business college, Pittsburg
Though he started in life and worked for
six years as a coal miner and lost both
legs in an accident on the railroad, he
has still managed to work his way up
Vote for him, and give a deserving
and competent man your help.
If last year and the year before there
were auy Democrats who hesitated
about going to the polls, the open de
bauchery and corruption of the Hast
logs legislature, should call them to a
sense of their duty to the public. Any
man with a spark of patriotism in him
must certainly feel a sense of resentment
at the shameful record. Assert your
manhood and .vote against the ticket
set up by the rings that stood back of
these rascals.
Many claim that the tariff question
is one which they cannot understand
Here are tha results of the two latest
laws on that subject which all can com
prebend! Under MeKinleyism business-
was depressed wages reduced and h ,n-
dreds of thousands of men thrown out
of employment. Uuder tariff reform
business has leen revived, wages in
creased and emnloymeut furnished all
idle men. Persons who don't under-
. Ftand the details of those laws can at
least see what has followed their opera
tieu. The MeKinley act was a Repub
lican law; tariff reform is a Democratic
measure. The former produced a gen
eral blight; the latter has proved a uni
versal blessing.
United States senator cjcay is ac
tively pushing his boom for Republican
national chairman. He lets no chance
go by to keep the name of Matthew
Stanley Quay before the people, and, as
usual, is ready to sacratice all others to
attain this end. His champion is the
Philadelphia Inquirer, and while that
paper does not publish one editorial in
favor of the Republican state ticket it
gives columns to Quay and his schemes.
His latest scheme waa promulgated from
Washington in the form of an inter
view, in which ue explodes a plan to
raise $ 10,000,000 by increasing the im
port duties on woolen and other goods.
He savs he will do great things in the
way of harbor improvements, etc., if
the tariff is increased. Here is another
instance of "the people be d d," for
he wants to increase the duties ou wool
ens and increase the cost of goods to our
people. It is a great play for increased
popularity, but it will hardly work, as
the people are satisfied to pay low prices
for good clothing, and will not willingly
jet urn to high prices and low wages.
Is looking over the list of Democratic
candidatt? for superior court judges, we
find that no I tier selection could have
been made as to location in order to give
the new U-noh the exierienee that is re
pired in such an important post.
Hon. O 1'. IJchtel, reared and living
a!i his !if-; in S huylkill county, the
richest district of ihe anthracite coal re
giou. and Hon. I' I Smith, holding a
prominent position m Lackawanna
county, the northern f-nd of the anthra
cite district, give to the bench that ex
perience in the coal business that is in
dispensable in any high court. No
section in the country brings a greater
volume of business to the legal profes
sion than the anthracite coal region of
Pennsylvania, and it is only proper that
it should be well represented on the
bench. In Hon. James S. Moorehead,
of Westmoreland, and Hon. Christopher
Magee, of Allegheny, our vast fields of
bituminous coal and the great iron in
dustries of Western Pennsylvania fine
representatives who cannot be equalled
anywhere. Hon. Charles H. Noyes
comes from Warren county, which is up
in the northern belt, and, therefore,
that region has secured a wise and
learned candidate. The farmers in the
southern portion of the state have Har
man Yerkes. of Bucks county as their
tvDical representative. Could a fairer
distribution of candidates been- made
Could a more experienced ticket have
been placed iefore the people of Penn
sylvania? We do not think so, and we
believe that the jeople are wise enough
to cast their ballots for the whole ticket.
Ix his speech in Philadelphia last Sat
urday, our candidate for state treasurer
Hon. B. F. Meyers, said:
"The rapid return of the country to
prosperous conditions promises sufficient
revenues. At any rate an election at
which only a state treasurer and seven
judges of a su)er(luou3 court are to be
chosen can hardly be expected to deter
mine the question whether or not a re
vision c : the tariff should be had. True
it is that the changes are being rung on
this question by our political adversa
ries, hven the transcendent splendor of
Senator Quay's civil service reform pro
gramme is not permitted to dazzle the
eyes of the Republican saints so as to
blind them to the great importance of
saving MeKinleyism by the election of a
machiue-made candidate for state treas
urer. .Nay, the unspeakable virtues of
the Lexow committee, whose grand and
glorious purpose seems to get such in
formation for the use of the next legis
lature as will have the effect of deterring
that body from changing the name of
this city to Maitinsburg, is postponed
until after election, lest, indeed, the cal
cium light which is to flash upon the
precincts of the City of Brotherly Love
might so affect the optics of the regula
tion Republican voter that he would get
his cross mark into the wrong column
for state treasurer on the Australian bal
lot." Ax esteemed contemporary very brief
ly and aptly sums up the political situa
tion in the following paragraph:
The fact that the Democratic candi
date for governor of Pennsylvania polled
4G4.200 votes in lS'JO. and was lelected
bv a majority of lt,554, shows that
there are enough Democrats and Inde
pendents in the state to turn the usual
Republican majority upside down when
ever they are so minded; and they are
never so apt to be so minded as in an
off year, and in the peculiar .political
situation now prevailing in Pennsylvan
ia. Aside from any question of faction
al division in the Republican ranks, the
fact is undeuiable that among the more
thoughtful Republicans of both fac
tions there is undercurrent of dissat
isfaction upon various accounts, and
notably because of the profligacy of the
legislature of 18.5, the wanton creation
of useless oflices, and above all, the Ua
grant wrong of the state administration
in attempting to pack the superior court
and make it a helplessly partisan arm
of the state judiciary. This is an abuse
which grates upon the better instincts
of th ose Republicans who do their own
thinking; and it is most likely effect will
will be to swell the Independent vote for
the Democratic superior court ticket."
It is significant that, notwith
standing the assertions of himself and
his"organs, Matthew Stanley Quay does
not think that the Republican party
ticket is going to win by anything like
the party majority, let alone such an
extraordinary vote as it polled last fall.
He has come to Philadelphia with
large army of camp followers, hench
men and confidential clerks, and is
working for a state victory harder and
more persistently than he did when he
was national chairman of his party
In fact Mr. Quay plainly sees the day of
nis political decline and the sunset of
his career as on alleged statesman.
This is his last supreme struggle for
the boss ship of his party and he is
sacrificing everything to maintain his
hold. He is like unto the monster of
the Northern ocean, who, pierced by the
spears of many brave whalers, lashes
the sea and in its fury makes a vain en
deavor to destroy his enemies and regain
his liberty. So Quay, who though
himself invulnerable, has found himself
mortally wounded by the lancers of the
respectable portion of his party, and yet
tries to crush them with his waning po
litical power.
The Democrats of White, and the
Mountain districts of Reade, Dean
Gallitzin township, Cresson, Washington
and Portage township, numbering in all
over 1000, have all seen the Republican
prediction of disaster refuted by plenty
of work in the mines, and good markets
for farm products. They will be out in
force on Tuesday next to rebuke the par
ty of false predictions.
There are 76 voting precincts in Cam
bria county; a loss or gain of one vote
in each district might be sufficient to de
termine the result. Let not one Dem
ocrat remain at honje.
Washington Letter.
Washington, D. C, Oct. 25th. ISI'5.
PrttiJeut Cleveland found ou nis retnru
from Atlanta that although the season
for the propagation of cabinet resigna-
ti .ns was a little late in opening u tmu
lc-en working overtime to catch up. lie
learned tor the first time tiiat a disagree
nieut existed between himself and Secre
tary Olney of such a serious naiure that
the latter was going to rcure in wn-
jhinet, and that it was on account of
that disagreement that Mr O'.nr-y did
not accompany him to Atlanta. T .i.
might have been very distressing to him,
if he had not known that it was because
he would have to go to Atlanta a little
later on with the foreign representatives
to take part in tne exercises of Diplo
matic Day at the exposition, and tne
pressing nature of some private business
in Boston, that prevented Secretary O'.
ney going with him.
Tne president presided over a cabinet
meeting to-day, but there was nothing
said or done which implied in the slight
est degree any disagreement over the po
sition of this government in dealing
with the dispute lielween England aud
Venezuela. From the first the presi
dent and every memer of the cabinet
have heid the same opiuiou ou this mat
ter, and they still do'. While not pre
tending to speak for the president or the
members of his cabinet, it can be said
that many prominent Democrats lelic-ve
the current stories about disagr enieuts
and intended! resignations are circulated
for the purpose of trying to goad the ad
ministration into declaring what it will
do in ease England should resort to force
to carry its poiut in Venezuela, aud that
some of the circulators have benefitted
at the exnense of the Knglish secret
fund. Be that as it may, the adminis
tration has no idea of showing its hand
to England at this stage of the game.
Its position has been fullv deterniiied
upon and will be annouueed it will be
approved by a great majority of our peo
ple, if not by all or the president s io
litical opponents.
A very small thing is needed in w ash-
mgton to start a very big sensation.
One of the verv smallest of these
small things was the order for contin
uous work on the guns wnich are being
made in the government gun shop, for
the new battle ship Oregon, now lying
at the Mare Island navy yard waiting
the completion of her armament. This
order was made the foundation for
String of the most outrageous stories as
to the administration's hurried prepar
ations for the inevitable war with Kng
laud and similar rot. the truth was
easily obtainable, if it had been wanted.
The order for continuous work was
issued by the navv department for no
other purpose than to have the guns
ready at the stipulated time in order to
prevent the throwing of auy blame for
delay on the department by the con
tractor. By working three eight hour
shifts three days work are accomplished
on the guns every 24 hours. How very
warlike these preparations are may be
seen from the size of the working shifts
one foreman, four machinists, oue
engineer, one fireman, and two laborers
to each.
It is, of course, known that President
Cleveland is and will be a verv busy
man until after his message to cougress
is completed, but there is one thing that
all the Democrats hereabouts would like
him to take time enough to do. That
is to dismiss the negro, Taylor, who is
recorder of deeds for the district of Col
umbia. Taylor claims to have been
Democrat before he came to Washing
ton, but his rascalities have been much
more marked than his Democracy since
he secured one of the best local posi
tions in Washington, and this week he
attended a negro Republican mass
meeting and made a speech in favor of
a negro Republican being elected as one
f the delegate-s to the national Repub
lican conventon. Since men every
Democrat one meets expresses the wis!
that President Cleveland would kick
Taylor out of the olfice to which he ap
pointed him.
Secretary Carlisle proposes to set
good example bv going all the way to
Covington, Ky., to register in order that
he may be able to cast his vote for the
straight Democratic ticket in that state.
The stoppage of the coinage of stiver
has no bearing whatever upon the silver
question. The only silver that has been
coined for sometime has been worn and
mutilated silver. The appropriation for
that purpose for the current fiscal year
having leeu exhausted Secretary Car
lisle directed that the mint at New Or
leans be closed and the employes fur
loughed until such time as coinage may
le resumed. It is probable that th
question of the coina e of the lo7,"44,
(AH) ounces of silver bullion which the
government now has on hand, remain
ing from the purchases made under the
Sherman law, will be referred to con
gress. Should congress order this silver
to be coined the government would
make a profit of almost $34,000,000 on
it, that being about the difference le
tween its cost and the amouat of silver
dollars it could be coined into. Inef
fectual attempts were made to get the
last congress to authorize this coinage.

Constantinople. October 2). Another
massacre of Armenians, accompanied
by the outraging of women, is reported
to have occurred recently at Baibut, be
tween Erzerum aud Trebizond. Ac-
. . . i . - ,1
cording to trie report, received iiere a
mob of about 500 Mussulmans and
Lazes, the great majority of whom were
armed with rifles, made an attack upon
the Armenians inhabiting severol vil
lages of that vicinity and set fire to
their houses and schools.
When the Armenians tied from their
dwellings they were shot down as they
ran and a numher of Dien and women
who were captured by the rioters were
fastened to stakes and burned alive.
The Armenian women who fell into the
hands of the mob were outraged and
mutilated. The churches were desecra
ted and the villages attacked were pilla
ged, the cattle and all the portable prop
erty of any value belonging to the Ar
menians being carried off by the rioters
During the disturbance loO Armenians
are said to have been killed.
The surviving villagers applied to the
governor of Baibut for protection, and
he, after hearing their complaint, sent
three policemen to the scene of the mas
sacre, alter the slaughter was ended.
The Turkish officials, it is claimed know
the riug leaders of the outbreak, but uo
steps have leen taken to arrest them.
The Turks, it is stated, have also at
tacked the Armenians in the district of

many of them.

Mill Adopt a Sew Plan.
Belief on te. Pa., October 28 Deputy
Secretary of Agriculture John Hamilton
will this year inaugurate a new plan of
holding the farmer's institutes through
out the state over that formerly in vogue.
Instead of holding just two institutes in
a county, lasting two days each, he pro
poses to hold four institutes of one day
each, and thus hopes to be able to im
part an additional interest as well as
give instruction to a much larger per
centage of farmers than has heretofore
beeu the case.
The department proposes, in addition
to the allotment of money furnished
each county, to aid tne local manage
ment by providing, free of expense, out
side help, the visiting workers to be
pret-ent oue day, and then proceed to
the next place and thus throughout the
entire state. If the local managers
think it advisable, they have the privi
lege of continuing the institute as long
as they see fit.
Mr. Hamilton also makes the sugges
tion that the institutes be held in the
small towns aud villages, rather than in
the larger towns, and as a better means
of reaching the larger class of people for
whom the help is designed. And he
urges that the local management secure
home talent and induce them to think
out and put in presentable shape impor
tant problems in agriculture that need
investigation and solution. Thus, he
believes, the object of the farmers' in
slitutes will be more readily and nearly
attained than by the reading of and el is
cussing scientific papers that half the
farmers cannot understand.
Mraigliteuing the Iiues.
Philadelphia, Otcober 2S. On re
turning from his tour of inspection over
the Pennsylvania railroad President
Roberts said:
"There has been a remarkable im
provement in business in both the East
and West during the past few months,
and the winter gives promise of a 6till
greater increase in activity in all direo
tions. The renewal of prosperity was
striking, especially in the West, where
the farmers have had an unusually large
corn crop. Our road has been gTeatly
improved in every respect since the last
annual inspection, but still there is al
ways opportunity for improvement. On
the eastern system, the principal work
contemplated is a continuation of the
division and straightening of the lines.
W e propose to take out more of the
curves, and in fact all that we possibly
can. In the West we will lengthen our
double track and add to the equipment
in various ways. We have ordered
",000 freight cars, which will be built
aud delivered during the year."
