Worman, of the I-emo-cralic society of Pennsylvania, announ cing that the general assembly of the Democratic societies of Pennsylvania will meet at Erie on Wednesday morn ing, August i'O. He says the meeting will take the form of a grand state rati fication of Bryan aDd rSewall. Askki in New York, a few days ago, what the issue of the pending contest is, Millionaire Mark Hanna, the head of the Republican party, replied: "The only issue in this campaign is the elec tion of McKinley." From Hanna's point of view that, no doubt, is correct He is one of the syndicate of millionairefe who hold a mortgage on the Republican presidential candidate. More truthfully and plainly stated Hanna's reply means: The only issue in this campaign with some of us is to realize on our mort gage, which can alone be accomplished by MeKinley's election. The London ntnciil Srus Ukes the following fiew of the cndiiion of thing? in this country. "The financial situation in the Uni ted States is very servri5.

"With the addition of silver to the volume of money, everything in Amen ca would take on a new face; labor and industry would gnin new life. The grip of the gold ctundard on the products of the world would be loosened and prices would rise. Great Britain wvuid lot her markets in South America, Asia and Europe, and American shijis would n-it be lontr in capturing the carrying trade of the world. "British creditors must now apply themselves quickly to the American money problem. The American people are now thoroughly aroused and edu cated on fhe power and use of money, and made desperate by debt and buri ness depression, they are furciDg free silver as the main issue. "Great Britain need fear no injury t her trade or investments if the Republi can party can force 'protection tariff as the main issue in the coming presiden tial campaign, but if free silver domin ates the American mind and carries at the polls, it will bring about a change in England that will be ruinous from its suddenness and severity. The damage that can be dont? British manufacturer by a protective tariff is slight compared with the disasters that would be en tailed by a change from a single gold to a complete bimetallic standard. "The success of free coinage will bring down the rate of interest on money, and cause an immediate rise in the trice 01 all commodities When silver become? primary money the American mines wili pour their products intcf the mints, and a Dew era similar to that produced by the issue of greenbacks during the civil war will begin. Gold will leave the banks and eater into competition with silver in the avenues of trade, and the manu factories of the Uuited States w hich have been Ehut down or crippled since will again resume their tight foi English markets. "It matter? not to Great Britain which party succeeds if the gold standard 1j- aiaintained, but either of the old parties or a new party which goes into power pledged to free coinage will be inimical and prejudicial to English manufacto ries and trade. "The American people are massing now on free silver. When that issue comes fairly before tho American peo ple, England will regret her apathy am; adherence to the single gold standard." H a-Lirietor-. Letter. H hest of all ia Leavening Power. Latest U.S. Gov't Report Chairman Roi ert E. Wright, of the Democratic state Central committee, has forwarded his letter of resignation as chairman of the committee to Secretary Matt Savage. Secretary Savage is auth orized to present the letter at the meet- irn of the committee, which will be held in Harrisburg, August 13. Mr Wright is right in resigning the chair manship, but he should not have been no long before doing so. In his letter, which is a lengthy one, Mr. Wright at tacks the Democratic platform in detail and it is an insult to the Democrats of the state. His inclinations are with the gold -bugs, not his party, and he Is per lectlv welcome to eo with them. The Democratic masses can spare him. Os Wednesday evening, William J Bryan, the next president of these Uni ted States, formally opened the cam paign at Madison Square Garden, in cw York Citv. The candidate for president, William J. Bryan and Ar thur Sewall candidate for vice president were formally notified of their nomina tion in presence of the largest crowd of neoDle that ever congregated in that a ' building. In the presence of the vast throng, Mr. Bryan accepted the nomin ation and in a speech lasting one hour and forty minutes announced the prin ciples of the platform ;and in words of burning eloquence that carried convic tion to the vast throng that had gathered there to greet the nominees, he gave his views on the great questions that are now before the eople. The reception was an enthusiastic ovation and the tremendous outpouring of the Democ racv is a wholesome indication of the greeting he will receive in November. An interesting annual report, has been preparedly State Forestry Commissioner Rothrock, one of the most valuable fea tures of which is the information as to the forest tires.duaing the past year. During lSi5 about 225,000 acres of woodland were burned over, causing a loss of valuable timber aggregating fully $1,000,000. About 5,000 men were en gaged a total of days in extinguishing the fires, representing a wage account to the farmiDg community of about $45, 0O0. Twenty buildings were destroyed two men and five horses and cattle lost their lives in the fires. Much cut and sawed timber was also burned. Upon these figures Prof. Rothrock bases his advocacy of a bill which has been prepared for the consideration of the next legislature, providing for the ap pointment of fire wardens whose duty shall consist of directing the work of ex tinguishing fires as well as enforcing the law against those who carlessly or mali ciousness set fire to the forests. Prof. Rothrock further holds that the question of pure water, vhich is agita ting the larger cities, could be easily settled by the establishment of forests, which retain and purify the rainfall. Certainly this object of forest preser vation is becoming more and more important each year and soon must receive the earnest consideration of (he lawmakers of the state. Does the farmer realize tnat ne it- practically paying three times as mud taxes in ly.'o as he did in lio, mea sured in cereals, fruit and vegetable.- the chief products of the country? In June. 1S73. Pennsylvania red wheat was quoted in the Philadelphia . niaikeL- at $1.00 to $1 05 a bushel; to-day tht same grade of wheat is quoted at 01 i cents a bushel. This year it would take about 50 bushels of wheat to pay a $80 tax bill; then only about IB bushels would have been required to pay the same bill. Twenty-five years ago mortgages on country farm lands were comparatively few. To-day it is safe to estimate that there are between $4,000,000 and -3, 000,000 of them on record! Necesities are cheaper now, it is true, and a dollar will buy more than it used to; but, before the era of cheaper goods farm products had fallen and the farm had to be mortgaged. Every Farmer who has been in business twenty to thirty years knows this. In lbo forty bushels of wheat paid the interest on $1,000 mortgage. In 18V0 it takes near ly 120 bushels. While goods are cheap er, the rate of interest is practically the same. It would seem that overproduction was not a condition now, for, though the population has largely increased the world's wheat crop for 1'J5 was Iese than that of 173. Then why this grea change since 1873? It is the duty of every farmer to inquire whether the present condition has not been brough about by the excessive protective taxa tion, goia monometallism and a wrong financial system. The comparison be tween the conditions of 18'JG and 1873 show unmistakably that the farmer un der the gold and silver standard was prosperous, while under the present sin gle standard be can hardly make end meet. These are practical lessons that no amount of theory can explain away Washington, Aug. 7th. 1'." Sena tor Jones.

I said that as a rule the IV'pu.isis in Xhd South would follow the patriotic course and support bryan; mat there were some who, for etllish motives. Would not do m, but would prefer to have MiKiniey ek-cted." The charge of mismanagement against Senator Joue-s falls of its own weight, for the very good reason that there lias leen practically nothing to manage and will uot te until the meet ing of the national committee in New York City on the 11th iut., when the membership of the executive committee will be announced aud the general plan of the campaign mapped out and adopt ed. This charge w a accompanied by a demand that Senator Gorman S servico le requisitioned. That really explains one of the main objects of those who made the charge to upset the extreiuely ordial relations existing between J-ena- or Jones and Gorman, thus depriving the national committee ot tne advice which Mr. Gorman has promised to give during the campaign in lieu of accepl- ng the chairmanship of the executive committe-e which was offered him. The gold Democrats of New York may be quite the patriots they claim to e. but siuce it became known in Wash ngton that they tried to make a deal wuli Mark Hanna to cas-t their voles for the McKinley electoral ticket in ex change for Republican vote iu the New York legislature for one of their numliei senator to succeed David B. Hill, they are class' d as plain, everyday dirgrunt- led politicians, more l-nt upon get- tintr ofhee thau upon defending prin ciples.

A great wiod and raiDgtorm. accom panied by most terrific lightning, passed over a portion of the southern end of Westmoreland county at an early hour on Monday morning, doing great dam age. The new glass plant near Mt. 1'ieagant was struck by lightning and live men working on the walls were hurled to the ground. All were more or less injured. The injured are Jim Brown and John Sweezy, hod-carriers, colored; and George Karbaugh, David Siovaker, and Harry Tozier They were conveyed to their boarding houses in an unconscious; condition. It is expected that they will all- survive. The glass plant was badly wrecked, the main stack having been split from top to bottom.
