; W UYELYINLANCASTER. P A Hot Primary Election With Some Kesults Still in Doubt. HAETIK'S SLATK FOK DELEGATES, BnppoBed to Favor Delamater, Seem to Hare Seen Successful. A CLOSE CdMEST IX ONE DISTEICT rEPECf AL TKLBOKAM TO THE DISPJITCO.1 Lancaster, May 4. The fierce political contest waged at the Republican primaries in thit county on Saturday may not be con cluded until the final decision of the board of return judges to-morrow. The present is what is known as the big- year in local poli ties, nominations for municipal and county ofiices fallinj; tojrether triennially. The im portance of the contest was added to by the nominations for Congress and State Senator in the Fourteenth district and delegates to the State Gubernatorial Convention also hap pening to be chosen at this time. It was in all respects the most interest ing and remarkable contest ever known in Republican ranks here, calling out the largest vote ever polled and accompanied by the greatest expenditure of money and debauchery of the ballot. It was equally remarkable in the spectacle it presented of iormer friends battling against each other and enemies of long standing suddenly reconciled and working together for the same candidates. BKOSIDS AX EAST TVIKXER. It early became apparent that the two term principle would give Congressman Brosius a walkover. All the schemes of the opposition to combine on a candidate against him came to naught and failed to disclose 'any candidate strong enough to make the fight. "When at a late day S. U. Myers concluded to announce himself, it was against the judgment of most of his po litical friends, and the result shows that while there was a strong protest against Brosius, it was without organized strength ( or effective direction. He will have more ' majority than Myers haB votes, and already his supporters throw up their hats for Brosius for a third term. It is clearly recognized, too, that some of his most discreet friends had an understand ing with the Hartman ring taction that Brosius should not be hurt if he kept his fingers out ot the other fights. A like ar rancement operated largely to the advantage of E. K. Martin, the local candidate for Lieutenant Governor. He picked out sir delegates pledged to support his cause in the State Convention and put them into the field. He allowed his caose to be compli cated with no other candidate's interests and was spared opposition from many of his old enemies on this account. VERT SEAB DErEAT. "While Martin's men for delegates had practically a walkover in the country dis tricts, an element of intense opposition to the city delegates for Martin developed in ice past weeic, ana came very near to visit ing defeat upon Lancaster's State candidate in his own home district. Since last Mon day the Iriends of General Hastings, led by Colonel B. F. Eshelraan, aide.) by William E. Leeds from Philadelphia, and "Mr. Law rence Brown, of Bellefonte, who has been here in person, had been trying to carry the town against Martin to elect Dr. H. E. Muhlenberg to the State Convention in Hastings' interest. They failed by 150 in a total vote of 3,745, which was uncomfortably close for Martin's man Bhckeuderfer. but now that he has a full local delegation of six, be goes to the State Convention with a hopeiul outlook and ready to serve anybody except Hastings after Delamater is retired from the contest for first place. Ugly rumors are afloat of large sums of noneysent here both in the interest of Hastings and of what was con strued to be the Quay slate, and certain it is that during the past week there has been no scarcity of boodle on either side, and that on Saturday afternoon as high as 5 were paid for individual votes for State delegates. CASIEKOX'S FBIEKSS USING. Senator Cameron's immediate friends throughout the contest showea a disposition to work through quietly a Legislature dele gation that would be favorable to his re nommation, and in this they seem upon the wholeto have been successful. They had no serious interference from Brosius, Martin or the distinctly Quay elements. For Sen ator in the upper district Kauffman was recognized as the Quay candidate and Smith as the stratght Cameron favorite, but the third candidate, J. Stober, backed bv Boss Mentzer and ex-Senator Boebuck, turned up as a powerful third faction, and up to late this afternoon the three were abreast in the race. It may require the official vote to deter mine which of them is elected, and there will probably be not over 100 difference be tween ihera. The chances at present are in Stober's favor, with Smith second and Kauffman third all scared and none nope less. Bellingi'elt falls away behind. In the city district the piesent member of the Legislature, W. W. Franklin, won by 500 over Frank McClain, who was backed by both Sensenig and Mentzer- In the lower Assembly district A. C. Baldwin, the pres ent member, is renominated, with second place in doubt between Baby and Heidel- baueb. In the upper district Seifert and Boyd, both of whom were deteated by very close votes two years ago. are certainly nominated, with the chances favoring Dr. H. K. Blough for third place. A. rorULAB CANDIDATE. For SheriQjJohn Sides proved as popular as had been predicted, and wins by an enormous majority. He had widespread popular sympathy, and owes his success to no particular boss or faction, although Levi Sensenig, J. W. Johnson and J. T. Strine backed him heartily. Two of his deputy ships are already assigned to ex-Deputy Hippey and Charles M. Strine, who on the eve of the primarv withdrew as a candidate for Quarter Sessions Clerk. The most jubilant man in the countv, and the one who carries it out with the greatest pcisuuu victory, is i,ew iiartman. Three years ago he ran for a Fecond term as Pro thonotary and was flattened out. His enemies followed up his defeat with crimi nal prosecution of his friends in several election boards and sent them to jail. He seemed to be ruined as a politician. His candidate for Mayor in February last was beaten, hundreds of the Mentzer Republi cans openly cutting him. When Hartman proposed to run again for a lucrative county office his best friends de nounced his scheme as suicidal, and pre dicted that he would drag down a'll his fac tion in defeat. A violent quarrel with Levi Sensenig some weeks ago seemed to drive away his strongest supporter, but he has triumphed over all and galloped over the course an easy winner. His candidate for Register, Geyer, and for County Treasurer, Hiestand, have also pulled through, and his reconciliation with the Martin forces prom ises to be permanent On the balance of the ticket there was a scattering fight, and the winners for all the places cannot positively be named until the returns from the back districts are brought to town to-morrow. gress, Marriott Brosius; Assembly (North ern district), A.

Saturday Night Roisterer Whack Cp for Their Fun Some of Them Fat Oat of Temptation's Way for Awhile Sunday Follce Coons. Forty-six ladies and gentlemen stepped up to Piper Gripp yesterday morning, and paid for the merry dance they led the police the evening before. Mrs. Mary Carroll, of the Yellow Row, was arrested early yesterday morning, sur rounded by 157 bottles of beer, and seven earnest and enthusiastic drinkers. Mrs. Carroll's busband was caught at the same trick a week ago, and was sent to the work house for 60 days. He will get out just one week before his wife. The rest of the party was discharged. Mike Boho was married Saturday evening at the residence of his brother on Tustin street. After the bride the greatest attraction was found in four "quarters" of beer. The festivities were at their height, and all the sleepy people in the neighbor hood were cursing the party, when Officer Bacley swooped down and arrested the bridegroom and seven male guests. Magis trate Gripp was lenient and discharged them all. Peter Boyle volunteered to instruct Officer Arthur in his duty. Boyle will have 30 days in which to draw up new police regu lations. Stella Koehler, of 433 Thirty-third street, was arrested for selling liquor without a license, and her five guests were taken along. No liquor being found the whole party was discharged. The other cases were trifling and were dis posed of summarily. The increased number of saloons on the Southside evidently had an effect on the police business in that section of the city Saturday night, as there were 39 cases be fore Magistrate Succop at the Twenty eighth ward station yesterday morning. This was exclusive of the persons who were arrested on warrants for illegal liquor sell ing. Of the latter class Mrs. Elizabeth Coxen, Jacob Eichley, John Shay and Frank Meyers furnished bail yesterday morning for a hearing. Early yesterday morning Inspector Mo Kelvey and Captain Stewart called at the residence of Ed Grinder, No. 126 South Twenty-first street, to see how his business was prospering. The time was a little un seasonable for a lively traffic, but, early as it was, the officers found that the host was still doing business at the old stand. They wefe sorry to drag Mr. Grinder away from his business, but it had to be done, and the trio started for theJTwenty-eighth ward sta tion, where Judge Succop was holding court. Mr. Grinder was unable to pay a fine of ?50 and costs on the charge of keep ing a uisoruerir noose, maae against, bim by Inspector McKelvey, and was committed for 60 days. Mayor Wyman's hearing yesterday morn ing was prolific of a number of disorderly conduct cases, but none of them of any un usual interest. John McGuire paid $10 ana costs. John barber and James Mar tin went to jail for ten days and James Malarkyfor five, while Thomas Walsh, Jack Burke, Tonie Lendo, Frank Seisan, Joe Farmer, Peter Roman, Alex Brown and George Brown paid $5 and costs each, all for disorderly conduct. Magistrate Hyndman disposed of seven drunks and disorderly cases at the Nine teenth ward station yesterday morning. WAYS OF STAGE EOfS. Some of the Little Eccentricitje Act ors and Actresses Display IN THEIB MOMENTS OF LEISURE. Stuart Bobson's Amnsing Attempts at Play ing; a Barber's Part, PITTSBURG PEOPLE IN HEW I0EK ICOnKXSrOXDEITCE OF T1TJE DISPATCn. 1 New Yobk, May 5. As a rule all pro fessional actors affect some whimsical ec centricity after arriving at a certain degree of prominence. I mingle with hundreds of them almost daily, and each and everyone is possessed with the idea that to be suc cessful on the "staige" some little caper must be cut in their everyday life to attract attention. Yesterday I was being shaved in the St. James Hotel barber shop, when X noticed Stuart Robson sitting next to me, with a waxed-haired, razor-wielder standing idly yet interestedly looking on. The famous funny fellow was shaving himself, and the sound of that blade traversing the stubble field of his physiognomy was like unto the gentle touch of a small boy, a short stick and a paling fence. He won't allow a barber to divest him of that hirsute wire which adorns his face, and the greatest joke about this idea is that he doesn't know how to shave himself. He looks like he needed a shave, no matter how often the habit has been indulged in during the week. MAKES THE BABBLES STABE. Another strange feature of this jugglery is that instead of Mr. Robson shaving him self down, as other mortals" do, he pcrsist ingly pushes the sharp steel up against the gqin of the beard. The barbers all stand back aghast and wonder how he survives such an ordeal, but no one is more compla cent than he when the job is done. The clever comedian then seeks the washstand, allowing the bowl to be filled with cold water, into which he plunges his whole head and face, holding bis breath as long as pos sible. After this the poor barber gets a chance at him. His only opportunity has now arrived, and he takes advantage by vigorously rubbing down the "patient," who will not deltfn to allow a plebeian handle him. After all this is finished Mr. Robson pays the usual price of a shave, shampoo and "brush, but practically he has done all the work himself. One not in the business cannot imagine to what a poor stage-struck girl is subjected when she faces the stern and critical man ager of a company, there to display her tal ents, whatever they may be. I accompa nied a young lady the other day to a man ager's office up town jnst to see and hear what goes on in such a place when a new subject arrfves. The young actress during the past season has been a popular favorite throughout the countrv, possessing lots of personal beauty and a very charming voice, besides having other accomplishments which go to make up the requisites of a successful all-around actress. creasing. Notwithstanding I met them on all the prominent thoroughfares and In the leading hotels. Among the ones whose names are known to every one in vour city, I noticed the following: W. A. Magee and wife, who have just returned from a southern trip; J. M. Hemphill and wife, J. B. RIcketson, Joshua Rhodes, James H. Mur dock, ChristopherL. Magee, J. R. McGinley, of the Philadelphia Company; E. M. Byers and wife, Miss M. P. Laughlin, Miss Leila Laughlin, Miss Magee, Miss O. C. Denning, W. B. Rhodes, Captain J. J.

I was in error last week in saying William McCreery sailed for Europe. It should have been Mrs. William McCreery and daughters, Lidie and Emilie. The latter, who is already? a brilliant musician, will perhaps complete her education in Germany. Lyman Kaine. SHOWBILLS SOUNDLY DEJT0UKCED. A Street Preacher Entertains nXarjte Crowd in Allesheny. An outdoor evangelist named Grier, who on Sunday evenings declaims from the eastern steps of the Allegheny Citv Hall, last evening stoutly berated a goodly-sized assemblage of people, who stood in the drizzle, for the manifold sins of these twin cities. He denounced, as a burning dis grace, the display on bill boards of "the pictures of variety show and comic opera beauties. "They are," he declared, "vile in every sense. Their gaudy colors attract the youth young girls as woll as young men. Fathers and mothers, would yon be willing to dress your sons and daughters in the style of these pictures and let them walk down street No, you would not. But you think nothing of letting th,em see these pic tures on the walls and in the windows. They are not satisfied with seeing them. They must go to the theater where the plays are presented, and thtfs not only vitiate their minds, but waste their money and their time. If all the Christian people of these two cities would unite, they could suppress the vile representations within two weeks. "How the Sabbath is desecrated herel To-day I saw a horrible thine. A man, who secured his license by not telling the truth, had his saloon doors wide open. The six week days were not enough for him, but he must desecrate the Sabbath by having work men laying a new floorfor him, for the sake of the mighty dollar. If whisky was not drank there, it is beyond my comprehension. If Jesus Christ were on earth he would shed no tears over 6uch a mean, low-lived, con temptible, vile, unprincipled scoundrel." HE LUKES RAIHY DAYS. Officer Crossan Apparently Not la It an Nice Weather. "This is the kind of weather J like to see," said Officer Garrett Crossan, one of the handsomest policemen on the force, as he knocked the rain from his helmet with his mace yesterdav afternoon at the postoffice corner. It had been raining steadily all afternoon, and the onlyprotection the officer had was a gumcoat; yet, despite this fact, he was happy. "I have not been compelled to say 'move on' once to-day, which is a rare occurrence on Sunday. You see, a rainy day keeps the loafers off the avenue, and the heavier the rain the fewer loiterers are to be seen. On a nice day it beats anything to see the way young fellows will stand, block ading the sidewalk, and it gets monotonous to tell the same crowds every half honr or so to get a move on. . "When the young loafers see me coming they gaze up at the top of the building on the opposite side of the street, and study the architecture of the structure. On rainy days they like to take up positions in doorways and study the footgear of young women. As I said before, tastes are different. I like rainy days, notwithstanding my wet condi tion, and dislike sunshiny weather." An Ex-Pollcerann Considered Insane. Owen Hummel, an ex-policeman, late night watchman at Brown & Co.'s Iron and Steel Works at Tenth street, was arrested last night while roaming through the Twentieth ward. He is stated to be insane, and was committed to jail for ten days by Magistrate Succop, in order that his mental condition may be looked into. WEDDING PRESENTS.

ESiIcott,the defaulting cashier of Sergeant-at-Arms Leedom's office, has been a resident of the Isle or Wight (England) since his mys terious disappearance from New York last winter. Soon after Silcott's disappearance his wife came to this county (their, old home) and visited her brother-in-law at Youncsville SIick" Silcott. Several days after that Sam Colfas, of Baltimore, as he was introduced, called on Mrs. Silcott ana accompanied her to West Union, where her father resides. nnlfi only remained here ore hour and then left for the East. He explained his visit by saving that he had stepped off to see how Mrs. Silcott was. by request of her son. Craved, Mho held a position in one of the departments at Wash ington. Mrs. Silcott remained m this vicinity until about two weeks aco, when she received several telegrams one a cypher one, and then Sam Colfas again mado his appearance for an other hour. Mrs. feilcott had her clothing all packed and seemed to be awaitlnc his coming. She was driven to the depot by Colfas. and they left on the first east-bound train. Mrs. Silcott told some of her friends that she was going to her son's, who had removed to Baltimore since his father's disappearance. At Baltimore she took passage for England, and in a letter yrltten to a near relative, found by a gentleman of Youngsville. which had been lost by the person for whom it was in tended and by whom It evidently had been read and lost, says that Silcott met her, and that now they aro happily settled." Mr. Leeaom. who is now at home here, received a telegram from Washlncton yesterday evening stating that Mrs. Silcott was met by her hus band on the Isle of Wight. From appearances now it would seem that several persons, near relatives, have not been near so ignorant of his whereabouts at any time as has been the gen eral public ALL AHE ANXIOUS.

An Increase In the Amount Distributed From Year to Year. rSrECTALTELEOBjLM TO THE DISPATCH. Cincinnati, May 4. The semi-annual profit sharing took place at the Proctor & Gamble factory at Ivorydale yesterdav. The amount distributed was $14,875 47," being 54,256 69 more than was divided last October, and 4.493 37 more than was shared a jear ago. This is the sixth time the emploves of the company have shared in the profits, and mere is no uouot mat me generosity ot the firm in this matter has much to do with the continued good will and satisfaction of their employes, who by extra exertion, add not only to the profits of the firm but also to their own.

She wished to join a certain company which goes out with a new niece next season. and the manager is endeavoring to get to gether a band of bright lights in the pro fession. The young lady answered an invi tation to call at 3 o'clock in the afternoon. When she made her appearance she was welcomed only with a business-like warmth by the cold and worldly manager. About the room sat several other men, who were joking and telling hard-luck stories about some rival companies, which was a "frost" in Denver, or 'Erisco, and immediately -alter expatriating npon the enormous business' done by their party in Omaha, or Chicago. While all this talk was going on, we entered. "Are you ready to try your voice. Miss So-and-So," askec the manager, at the same time motioning for a professor of music to the piano. - "Yes," she answered, hesitatingly, as she worriedly gazed about the room at the ogling spectators, "uui, continued sne, "not be fore all these strangers." "Why, certainly, they won't hurt you." And so she had to display her vocal tal ents in the presence of a whole room full of people. She afterwards told me that such an experience was extremely embarrassing and unsatisfactory, much more so than be fore a large audience in a tneater. HOW STABS AEE DISCOVERED. I siso discovered that many of the stran gers sitting around were the agents of dif ferent managers who are constantly on the lookout for new material in the profession, and if this young lady or any one made a favorable impression on them, they so re port to their respective eraplovers. Thus it is that many stars are brought out in the the theatrical world; also the chances are that many are kept in the background just because of the mortifying presence of bold bad men at a "private" rehearsal. ' H. P. Dilworth, the prominent voung commission broker of your city, is"at the Gilsey. I had a very entertaining talk with him there yesterday upon subjects of general interest to Pittsburgers. He is a young man of nineteenth century ideas coupled with ,an indefatigable disposition,' which has placed him loremost in the younger ranks of business men of the Gas City. He has just passed the thirtieth mile stone, but his premature gray hair a singu lar feature of the 'Dilworth family leads people to think him much older. His firm recently became associated with the Claus oprecKies mammoin sugar rehneries, which is the largert in the world and one which has successfully battled against the great Suear Trust. Mr. Dilworth is also identified with coal and glass interests in "Western Pennsyl vania. He speaks of Pittsburg and its ad jacent towns as being in a happy state of prosperity, far exceeding any era in its his tory. Now that the Schenley heir is con templating more improvements he thinks that Pittsburgers should be abundantly sat isfied with its plethorio gain, as against the larger cities in the country, He goes from here to Boston, where business engagements will occupy his full time. TO EUROPE FOR BEST. Wilson G. McCandless, with his family have apartments at the St. James. They will sail for Europe on the 14th, so I am in formed. Mr. McCandless, his many friends will be glad to learn, is enjoying better health than for months past. He tells me that New York agrees with him far more than Pittsburg, which is accounted for in the fact that he indulges in that panacea for all ills rest to a much larger deirpR here than when involved in the trying du ties of a bank president. it is prooaDiy distasteful to anyone to have his native city run down by a non resident, but the way Philadelphiaus are quizzsd when they come over here is some thing pitiful to behold. And they deserve it, too. I had occasion to run over there this week, and the contrast was so great that my friend who accompanied me could not remain over night When anyone speaks of going to Philadelphia, he invaria bly is met with the remark, "Philadelphia? Why where is that place? Is it on the map?" To lurther Illustrate the disdainful feeling a New Yorker has for the City of Brotherly Love and green shutters, a little colloquy in the "City Directory," between the clerk and porter oi a notei, nttmgfy covers it. A new feuest arrives, the porter takes his card and baggage up to the office, while the countryman from the banks of the Schuylkill awaits the assigning of his room. As the porter .goes out, the clerk asks, "Where's the gentleman from?" "Philadelphia," answers the porter. "Well go up and show him how to turn off the gas." The audi ence fairly howl at this bit of ib-called humor, at the expense of "the water station" 00 miles from here. the Local Accommodations on Pennsylvania Will bo Hammers. Chief Train Dispatcher Culp, of the Pennsylvania road, is. a busy man these days, working on the summer schedule. He went to Altoona last evening to confer with the officials there about running the trains. Mr. Culp could only say definitely that the schedule of the through passenger trains would not be changed, except that the Eastern express that leaves the city at 1 p. M. will rnn IS minutes faster to Al toona, making the trip by 5:45, instead of 6 o'clock. The schedule of the local trains has not been prepared either, but all the trains as far out as Wall will be quickened. Some of the trains will make fewer stops than now, while others will make all the stops, but faster time will be made Detween stations, xne engines are capable of making almost 60 miles an hour. Some important changes in the running ot trains are to be made on the West Penn. Superintendent Hutchinson would like to put on fast express trains, but he doesn't see his way clear. The local ac commodations as "far as the Allegheny liver will be increased by the addition of several trains. This will relieve the traffic on this end of the line, and the through trains can make fewer stops and better time from Butler Junction into the city. More trains will also be added to the Butler branch. Superintendent Hutchinson has the grad ing done for additional track, but he can't go ahead with the work until the appropriation is authorized by the directors. A LAZY OAKLAND HAN'S DOG. Trained to Drop The Sunday Dispatch Into the Postofuco Box. A well-known resident of Oakland has a large Newfoundland dog that is a wonder in his way and he weighs about 160 pounds. The gentleman walked into The Dispatch business office yesterday, accom panied by his dbg, and purchased an addi tional paDer to mail to a relative in Illinois. The paper was wrapped up, and after plac ing a 2-cent stamp on the wrapper and ad dressing it, the gentleman gtve the paper to the dog. The owner got into his buggy and drove to the postoffice, the dog rnnning alonside the horse. At the postoffice the gentleman stopped, but the dog didn't He mounted the steps, trotted down the corridor to the receiving boxes, and talking hold of one end of the paper in his teeth, he inserted the other in the opening into the paper box, and with his nose pushed it through the. hole. He had no hesitancy about brushing' his wet coat up against the light check, trousers of several young men standing near the box. and when one of them wanted to help him puih the paper through the open ing he growled, as much as to say, he knew his business and could get along without outside assistance. After depositing the paper in the box the dog bounded out again to his master, who was waiting for him. "It took me two weeks to train him to do that trick, but it paid me for the trouble," said the gentle man, as he drove off. i Undo Sam's Prisoner.
