THE SCRANTON TKIBUNE-MOXDAY MORNING. DECEMBER 14, 1890.
OF INTEREST TO Tp COMMONWEALTH Suggestions la the Bl-eonial Report of Secretary Reeder. REGARDING BAKER BALLOT LAW Severn! Changes to Remedy Defects Are Recommended by the Secretary. Nomination Paper Are Declared to be at Variance with the Intent of the Law. Harrlsburg. Pa.. Deo. 13. The bl-en-tlal report of ,he secretary of the commonwealth contains some Interest ing data ami Important recommenda tions. It shows that during the last two years over 1.200 charters were Is sued, not including railroads, there be ing about 150 of these. The receipts of the department were $S,iM.07, about $75,000 being from fees upon letters patent. The expenditures were $ui. dito.SO. A large number of commissions Were Issued. He suspcests that a law be enacted fixing the terms of all officers appointed by the governor, owing to much con fusion in computing these terms. During the period covered by this re port forty-six death warrants, respites and commutations were Issued and l:il pardons. Secretary Reeder speaks of the attempt of the publishers of the Supreme court reports to increase the price from $1.17 to $2 per volume and stales that Hanks & Urothers have agreed to maintain the former price pending an adjustment of the matter. Regarding the Haker ballot law the seen tarv ivcumnie'n's several changes t.i remedy defects which have been found In the practical operation of the law. There were llled 755 papers con taining the names of 1.S77 candidates, ul'S of these papers being certificates of nomination and -'27 being nomination papers. Kighteen different parties were represented in the papers llled, and the work of the department, in the prepa ration of the olliclal ballots and In pre paring the (necessary return sheets upon which the prothonotaries should certify the returns filed in their of fices, and the compiling of said re turns, and the Issuing of certificates therefrom, was more than doubled In comparison with any previous year. He refers to the many objections to nlm inatlon papers and suggests that some provision should be made whereby a body of citizens making a nomination by nomination papers should have the right to the exclusive use of the polit ical name or appellation adopted by them. AT VARIANCE WITH LAW. He adds that the hearings in tho Dauphin county court disclosed so many practices In the preparation of nomination papers that were totally at variance with the intent of the law as to make it Imperative that some form for such papers should lis pre s rilied by the legislature. He suggests further that the time In tervening between the last day of fil ing objections to nominations and th clay of election be Increased, and that it also be provided that all contests should be determined by a certain day, thereby giving to the department and coun'.y ollicers n proper and sufficient time for the accurate completion of their work. lie also dwells upon the importance of changing the low so as to make the blankrt ballot Impossible by preventing the multiplication of candidates. An appropriation of $7,000 is recom mended to cover the cost of two sets of indices, one for Pennsylvania and the other for foreign corporations. He says reform is necessary in transcrib ing and comparing bills, owing to many errors discovered in tho laws of 1S95. An Increase In the number of pamphlet laws is recommended. The compila tion of the several corporations laws from 174 to 1SH3 Inclusive was entirely destroyed when ready for the binder by the state printing house fire. The printing of another series of Pennsyl vania archives is recommended as Is also an appropriation to continue the work of classifying, arranging and tab ulating old papers belonging to the files of the state department. Secre tary Reeder concludes his report by bearing testimony to the fidelity. Indus try and cfllclency of the clerks of the department. MUST PAY THEIR OWN BILLS. Committee Will Not Pay Expense of Visiting Organizations. Washington. Doc. 13. At a meeting last night of the executive committee of the inaucural committee reports were made showing a satisfactory con dition of progress. The question of where to hold the inaugural bull was discussed informally, but went over until the next meeting. A resolution was adopted declaring that while no pains would be spared to extend a hearty welcome to all vis itors and make all possible provision for their comfort, whether as individu als, associations or military organiza tions, free entertainment will be fur nished none, nor will the committee entertain any proposition for the pay ment of part of the expenses of visit ing organizations. MURDERED HIS AUNT. A Cold-blooded Crime for Which Isom Vaughn May lie Lynched. JefTerson City, Mo., Dec. 13. Mrs. William. Blrdsons, wife of a wealthy farmer near California, Mo., was brut oily murdered last night. Isom Vaughn, the murderer, was brought here and placed In the penitentiary for safe keeping, as the citizens of Cali fornia were preparing to lynch him. Vaughn confessed to the murder of Mrs. Rlrdsong, who was his aunt. While the woman was alone at home, Vaughn crept to an open window and fired a bullet into her body and then cut her throat. He told of the murder to his wife who at once caused his ar rest. No motive for the crime is given. Reduced Rates to Washington on Ac count of the Inauguration via Penn sylvania Railroad. For the benefit of those who desire to attend the ceremonies incident to the inauguration of President-elect McKlnley, the Pennsylvania Railroad company will sell excursion tickets to Washington March 1, 2, 3, and 4, valid to return from March 4 to 8. at the fol lowing rates: From New York, $S.W); Philadelphia, $5.40; Baltimore, $l.H0; Harrlsburg, $5.06; Wllliamsport. $8.79; Buffalo, $11.20; Rochester, $10.48; Al toona and Pittsburg, $10.00; and from all other stations on the Pennsylvania system at reduced rates.

Concluded from Page 1. exageratlon might be In all those re ports, and that Zertucha's only fault was that he drank too much. BLOODTHIRSTY TORT. Colonel Tort, who Is a very blood thirsty Spanish officer, recommended Zertuca to the Marquis of Ahumada as the verv man needed to attract Maceo to a given place, and to inform the Spaniards of all the Cuban leader's movements. Weyler agreed and, af ter promising Zcrtucha through Tort, a monetary reward, with which he could live safely In Spain, started again to Plnar del Rio with more forces Btill to compel Maceo to some desperate ef fort which Weyler hoped would bring him into the desired trap. But Maceo received advices from Go mez that the commander-in-chief was preparing an Invasion of the west with Calixto Uarcla. and that he thought it would be of the best moral effect If, leaving a good leader in command of the trocha. Join him, and march with him to the very gates of the city of Havana. The crossing of the trocha was not an easy aflair with a large body of men, and even when opportun ity offered but few Cuban soldiers could do it without attracting atten tion. Maceo knew how, and moved to Mariel; but the Spaniard), through Zcrtucha, knew of his movements and of the communication from Gomez. On the 2d of December Maceo sent four men to reconnoitre the trocha on the north side. They exchanged shots with the sentinels, nnd by this the Spanlnsh knew the proximity of the in surgent leader. Then orders were given by the Spanish commander not to resist. On the 3d Maceo sent some more scouts, who came back and as sured him that the trocha was not well defended on that side. He passed the trocha on the nlslit of the 4th without reslstunce, after leaving General Ruis Rivera in command of the Cuban forces in the Province of Plnar del Riu. On the 5th, In the morning, he sent a commissioner to the Junta at Hav ana. On the fith. while marching with six men, among them Miro, the son of Gomez, and Zertucha, the latter ad vised him to take a route through a cane field which he knew. They did so, and fell Into an ambush of 500 Spaniards, commanded by Major Clr ujeda. "If you surrender." said a voice, "we offer you your life and an honorable treaty." BUTCHERY BEGINS. "Viva Cuba libre!" answered Maceo, and then the butchery begun. Pancho Gomez was wounded and fell before Maceo. but Miro escaped. At this mo ment, said the Cuban commissioner to the- junta in Havana, a band of rebels who were going to Join Maceo at the Havana side of Marie!, approached and were Informed by Miro of the ambush. The Spaniards had already taken Ma ceo, who was pierced with bullets, and Gomez, who killed himself with the last bullet of his revolver. They had searched the bodies, and four men were curry them when the Cubans came up. A terrible fight ensued, nnd the Cu bans recovered the bodies of the two leaders, pursuing the Spanish with their machetes clear to Punta Rrava. Major Clrujeda had a narrow escape, but he was able to take with him tne objects seized In the first search, though he left the bodies of Maceo and Pancho Gomez dressed and in the hands of the eu"bans. Zertucha was taken by n Spanish sol dier to San Felipe, because he said that It was agreed with him that he should surrender to Colonel Tort. When Weyler heard that Zertucha had informed Ahumada of the passing of the trocha by Maceo, he said he was glad. He preferred to leave to Ahu mada the whole responsibility of the failure as well of the success and to keep quiet In the province of Plnar Del Rio. If a story of a battle could be afterward invented he was sure always of the glory, as Maceo would always appear as falling under his military plans. The whole story Is repeated In Ha vana now by every Cuban sympathizer of the revolution, and the greatest care has been taken by the authorities to prevent the truth from being sent out by letters or cables. The price offered to Zertucha bv the Marquis of Ahumada Is said to "have been $50,000. DE LOME DOUBTS THE TALE. He Says the Story of the Manner of Macro's Death is Absurd. Washington, Dec. 13. The Spanish minister, Mr. Dupuy De Lome, ex pressed the Jiope today that the Ameri can people will suspend Judgment re garding the reported assassination of Maceo until the real facts are known. He ridiculed the statement that the vice Captain General Ahumada should be a party to such an occurrence nnd he believes that there are a sufficient number of reputable correspondents In Havana to Investigate these charges fairly and publish the result. The statements of the Junta which he says, bear the stamp of absurdity upon their face are made to neutralize the effect of the president's, message and to creat sympathy with their fail ing cause. "We have been accused repeatedly," he said, "of circulating the report of Maceo's death to affect the action of congress. It is quite rea sonable to assume now that Maceo is known to be dead that the Junta Is or iginating reports of his death by treach ery for the same reason." WILL FIGHT FOR CUBA. Volunnteers Arc Thronging the Re cruiting Ktntion in Ohio. Columbus, O., Dec. 13. A Cuban In surgent recruiting office has been opened at the Grand Central hotel here. The man In charge of the office seems to have plenty of money. He is engag ing non-commlssloned officers of tho Seventeenth regiment. United States of America, located here, as they are dis charged on the expiration of their terms of enlistment, paying them $50 per month. A detachment of ten will leave here next week, going by way of New Or leans. Toledo, O., Dec. 13. A company Is being organized here of members of the Ohio National guard for service In Cuba. It Is said that already fifty men have been enrolled. Philadelphia Provision Market. Philadelphia, Dee. 12. Provisions were jobbing fairly at steady prices.

MRS. GOOLD'S GRATITUDE HOW SHE WAS RESTORED TO HEALTH. Condition Before and After the Birth of Her Child. From every city, town and hamlet on this vast continent, come letters from Buffering women; from those whose physicians have been unable to assist them, or from that num berless class whoso confi dence in Mrs. Pinkham's ad vice and the curative prop erties of her Vegetable Compound is unbounded. Every letter received from wo men is recorded, and hundreds of volumes of cases treated aid in fur nishing1 practical information for the women of today. No letters are published without the request of the writer. The strictest confidence is observed. The following letter represents thousands : " I always enjoyed good health un til six months before tho birth of my babe. Then I was very weak; my back ached all the time. My physicians said I would be all right after the birth of the child, but I was not, although at that time I had the best of care. The pains in my buck were utmost uu bearable. I had lcucorrhaa in its worst form; menstruations were pain ful. "Any work or care would entirely unnerve me. When my babe was 11 months old, friendt persuaded me to take Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound. Itefore I had taken one bottle I felt the effects. My back did not ache so badly, and I felt stronger. After taking four bottles I felt well. My ambition returned, menstruations were painless, leucorrhcra entirely cured, and I could take care of my babe and do my housework. I shall always recommend your Vegetable Compound for all women, especially for young mothers." Mrs. II. L. Uool.n, Oregon, Wis. If Mrs. Uoold had been well before the birth of her child, subsequent suffering would have been avoided. Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Com pound should always be titken before and after birth, in order that the system may withstand the shock. MARKETS AND STOCKS Wall Street Review. New York, Dec. 12. Less than 00.000 shares of stock were traded In at ".he Slock Kxchange today and the fluctua tions In prices were on a parity with the transactions. There was little news afloat to influence the market, but in a general wuy the unsatisfactory condi tion of trade and poor railway earnings had a tendency to weaken the list. There was little pressure to sell, however, ami the decline In the first hour was the wakest, ranging from fc to l' per cent. Manhattan scored the greatest loss, fall ing to Ki',. Heading sold down to 2tir'i. tne lowest point of the week. The losses in the Grangers, Industrials and Trunk Lines were confined to exceedingly narrow lim its. Toward the close bear traders start ed In to even up contracts, and the mar ket, In consequence, displayed a Ilmier tone. A recovery of -n per cent, was noted at this time, Manhattan, Wes'ern Union, Sugar and the gas stocks all be ing prominent. Speculation closed dull and firm.

We bought from one of the larg est Cioak manufacturers in the United States, Ten Thousand Dol lars 10, 000 worth of High Grade Jackets and ( apes at prices less than cost of manufacture. This season has been a treach erous one for cloak manufacturers and dealers. Therefore, havinz made such a heavy purchase bf High Grade Goods, and in order to protect ourselves, wo will slaughter those handsome gar mentS at prices never betore heard of in the history of Scranton. GARMENT GUARANTEED PAR S THE CLOAK TRADE Has had a trifle the worst of the weath er. Mild weather and a brisk cloak trade seldom come together.
