Tho Republican, district conference for the twenty-eighth Congressional district of Pennsylvania was held at the Com mercial Hotel parlors, in DuBoia, on Thursday oening, September :M, HMX), at t o'clock. It was certainly one of the most pleasant, harmonious and enthusi astic gaiberings of the kind ever held in the district. There were lour candidates in the field, a'd pood, strong men aud well worthy to represent liio district in Couuress. All tho candidates and conferees were on the -round by two o'clock, but those from Clarion county, whonrrivod at 7 p. in. The altei noon was very pleasantly spent by tho candidates and conferees in social intercourse, getting better acquainted villi each other and discussing the chanc es of defeating the euemy and redeeming this district, pood reports being heard from every county. Shortly alter 8 odock, the conl'erees as sembled In tho hotel parlors and were clied to order by W. II. Baker, of Ridg vay, who moved the nomination of W. C. Miilcr, Ehi , of Clearfield, us Chair man ol Hie con foi once. The motion was seconded and carried by unanimous vote. The brilliant young attorney accepted tho honor in an eloquent speech, which elicited great applause. Mr. Miller re ferred to the splendid administration of President M( liinluy in glowiug terms, and spoke of tho great iufporlaiico and bright pn-t;oct of his re-election. He Urged the conferees to put their host foot foremost in making tiie wisest and strongest possible nomination, for he fuit that thore was a good chanco to car ry the district with the right mau. lie warned the conlcience of the great dan ger of losing our present small majority iu Congress, aud tho urgent necessity of carrying every district where there is a possible chance. The eloquent words of tho young orator thrilled the whole con ference and Lo whs rcpeadly interrupted by loud and prolonged applaue. A rter the ad. 'ess, tho organization was cimtde.cd by tho election of Thos. II. Carter, Ihe talented editor of tho Key stone tiaelle, of liellefonlo, Center coun ty, and C us 15. Evans, a hustling aud popular young Republican of Forost county, as secretaries of tho eonforonco. The of ihe counues was then called in alplmbetcs a! order, when tho follow ins conferees presented thoir credentials ui-d were leistered as members of the coiitcioijce: (Vui. r-Tbos. II.

The organization being completed, the nominations of candidates were announc ed ne.a in n.der, and the roll of counties was railed iu alphabetical order. Prof. Giamley presented the name of Clement Da!o as (.V nter county's choice ; Geo. W. Pol, of Clarion county, presented the iia'iie of N. E. Giahani ; Geo. A. Luke- bart. of Clearfield presented the name of A., L. Cole E-k)., and Chairman Oeer. of Elk county, presented the namo of Col. A. A. Clearwalei, thN nomination being seconded by Mr. Geist, of Forest county. When the first ballot bad been taken, it was found that Col. Clearwater had six vofosand tho others threo each, A second mil call was started, and part oi . ne i onlor conferees had voted, w hen Mr. l.nkehart, of DuBois, aroso and said that he thought ihnt long and tedious con test for nominations were not fur the best :ini:reU of tho parly, and iu tho In tel est of harmony and tho success of the party at ihe polis iu November be wished U withdraw iho name of A. L. Cole, Esrj. Tho second ballot lesulted in three votes each for Mr. halo aud Mr. Graham, and nine votes lor Col. Clearwater. Chair man Miller promptly declared Col. Clearwater tho m. in nee, when (.'apt. C. T. Frvhoiyr, ( f Center, arose and staled Hint a a member of the minority he wished it inovf- to make tho nomination unanimous. Tliis motion was promptly oniied Ly M .-. Thoma-, of Clarion, and itva tanit.i v.iih ti rush amid gnat ftj'pia'isi. Piof. Gr.imle moved that tho Chair appoint a eoinu.iive of three lo notify the tiominee as v.rjll a the other candidate aud bring them all Ulbio thejcoiifcrenco. Tho motion was carried and Ihe Chair appointed Messrs. Urauitey, Evans 'and GtHir as the committee to notify Hie can didatos. On motion, Cbsirmau Miller appointed W. II. Baker, T. H. llarter and . A Lukehart a committee on resolutions. By this time the rooms had tilled up and Col. Clearwater was formally noli fied of his nomination in a very neat lit tie speech by the Chairman, in which be said in part, "Col. Clearwater, this eon ference has chosen vou from our list of splendid candidates as tho Republican nominee for this Congressional district- to act as our standard bearer and lead us to victory in November. It is both a high compliment and great trust which has boon bestowed upon you, but we all feel that your splendid record as a sol dier, Republican and eiti.en will add strength to our ticket and aid us greatly to win a glorius victory." "Mr. Chairman," replied tho modest and unassuming uomiuee, whosegroatest fault is lack of egotifin, "I did not sock this nomination for myself, my great de sire being to get a strong uiau to take up our banner and lead us to victory, but when the nomination is thrust upon mo with such hearty accord and enthusiasm, it seems to me that I can do nothing but accept it as a ca 1 to duty for our beloved parly and country. I accept this nomi nation, therefore, and will servo you as a candidate to the best of my ability, but I want it understood and agreed that if I serve as your standard bearer it must bo a clean and honorable campaign. Thore will bo noopeuiug of a ban el of either money or strong drink with which to debauch the voters of this district. If we can nut wiu with a re-peetablo cam paign let us go down with an honorable lel'oat. I would also remind tho mem bers of this ttfinl'erenre that niv aevopt- auce of this nomination certainly binds every one here iu honor to go homo and take off his coat, as it were, to work tor tho election of the ticket." This and much moro was said by the earnest nom inee, and his periods brought for;U loud and prolonged applause fro u ail preseul. Tho conference knew tho kiud of man they were pressing into the service in the same inauu'r in whtch thogallanl Rough Rider was drafted at Iho Republican Na tional convention at Philadelphia last Juno, and tbey were in hearty sympathy w ilh the sentiments ho expressed. Addresses wero also matle by tho uu- sticcessful candidates, in which ovoryono of them expressed tho most cordial and hearty support to the winner. They all realized the great importance of carrying the district and had faith that the pcoplo would sustain the administration on the grest issues of tho day. A uumbor of good speeches wero also made by tho conferees. Tho whole couferenco turned out lo be such a pleasant and enthusias tic alfair that evorydody interested was highly delighted with the result. After passing the following report of tho Com mittee on Resolutions, with most hearty accord, tho couferenco adjourned, but it must have been an hour before those present cot through congratulating and visiting with tho now candidate and were ready lo retire for tho night.

W. II. Vbkek, ) T. II. IIartek, Committee. Uko. a. Lukehart, For tho above exccllctit report of the conference tho Republican is indebted to Bro.Baker of the P.idgway Ahjeaic. The best sign of returning sanity iu China is that tho authorities recognix the friendly attitude of tho United .States. Only four of the forty churches of Gal veston are etauding. The fact gives tho world a true sense of the devastation of the City. The caroer of the Hon. Webster Davis is an illustration of the folly of trying to run a trip ha.nnior with the power en gendered from a soda-water fountain. Ik his lettor of a;eoptance Goy. Roose velt says definitely what bo would do in regard lo trusts. Tho Democratic party suguosta no particular remedy. It rants awbilo and then groans aw hile, and no one is tho wiser, for it propo-es nothing. Cuba's constitutional convention will meet Monday, Nov. ", tho day before tho presidential election, and its proi-redin;; will bo noted with unusual interest. The a.ssomblago will be a searching test of tho politacal capacity of tho people of the island. The paramount issue was created by Bryan, named by Bryan, inserted into tho platform at Bryan's orders and has been worked by him for all there is iu it, but already, before the campaign gets fairly warmed np, ho learns thore is nothing in it. Tho country refuses to scare. Thkiik is one utterance of Lincoln's that Mr. Bryan is not likoly to iuole. It was made iu 1S6'I, w hen tho Democratic leaders protested against sending Vallan dinghaiii across the Federal lines to tho Confederacy, and is as follows: "Ho who dissuades ono man from volunteering or induces one soldier to desert weakens the cause as much as ho who kills an Amer icau soldier iu battle. Must I shoot a simple minded soldier Isiy who tloserts, while I must not touch a hair of a wily agitator who induces him to desert ? This is none tho less injurious when effected by getting a father or mother or friend into a public meeting and there working upon Ids feebngs tilt bo is persuaded to write the soldier boy that ho is fightinU In a bad cause, for a wicked adniinisl.-a lion of a contemptible governm"nt. I think that, in such ease, lo silence iho agitators and save the boy is not only constitutional, bill wilhal a great meicy. Tns Conferees of this, 2Slh, Congres sional District did their duty at Dulhiia last Thursdry, when on Ihe second ballot they placed hi nomination as the Repub lican standard bearer Col. A. A. Clearwat er, of Wilcox. Elk county. A moro lion orablo, upright or worthy gentleman could not be found within the confine of Ibis immense district thau Col. Clear water. A stalwart Republican, a brave veteran of Ihe civil war, bearing tho marks of that bloody struggle, a splendid business man of wide experience, who has bv his owu efforts risen from ihe ranks to high place in the estimation of his fellow workmen and business associ ates, whose moral character is of tho very highest type, all this and much more to his credit can truthfully be said of him. If tho people of this district are anxious to elect a man of splendid Intel lect to Congress, whose evory act will be in harmony with the best interests of the laborer, the farmer, the mechanic and the business man, they 1 ave an op portunity atlorded them in Col. Clear water such as rarely presents itsi If to any constituency. o know we have an uphill fight, but with the right spirit and a will to go into it w ith determinationjwe .'an win. We have done so and can do it i gain. Om k more the wheat shipments at Galveston are iu motion, and otlu-r main lines of the tralllo w ill soon bo opened. A little experience has convinced tho Democratic managers Hint they would rather have Senator Hanna gathering in campaign subscriptions than making speeches ou the stump. Carl Soiivhz and Rouiko Cochran differing widely as they do about every thing else, unito in wishing tho Demo, cratic party to win "just for fun," and in promising that it will not bo allowed to to do much harm In anv case. "Mnml Iiy tho Hoy." "Father, if you knew the effect tho ac liou of your party has on the situation here, I am sure you would never vote lo haul down the flag." That appeal was continued in a lotter which an old mm, a lifo-long Demociat, living in an Illinois town, received from his sou who is a soldier in tho Philippines On his way homo 'from the postollice he met a neighbor, a Republican. The let ter, which naturally he had opened at once, was still in his i and. Mo read to Iho neighbor, what the son had written. Then bo said : 'For forty years I have voted a Demo cratic ticket, but I'll stand by the boy this year. You can place my name on your McKinloy club roll." There is a motto for all loyal A morl eans! "Stand by the boy" the boy wl o is lighting under his country's flag iu our distant new possessions, whether ho be your boy or your neighbor's boy, or sim ply one of the multitudo of patriotic American boys who are personally un known to you, but whom you know to bo evor ready to uphold the nation's hon or and her flag.

ID I) )i Pennsylvania Voters Will Not Fol low Bryan and Encourage Aguinaldo. (Special Corre ipondene.) Harrisburg, Sept. 25. Reports from different counties In Pennsylvania, carefully gathered within the last few weeks, all show that the cry of "Imperi alism" la having no effect upon Repub lican voters, and that many Democrats are denouncing Bryan for hia course on this issue, which has been encourag ing the Insurgents In Luzon to contlnuo their hostility toward tho United States. Leading politicians Identified with the state committee of the Democracy In Pennsylvania have been making wild boasts about the Democratic gains that are to be recorded it the coming election on acount of the policy of the McKInley administration regarding the Philippines. The president has put himself squarely on record on this Is sue, and In his recent letter of accept ance of the nomination for vice presi dent Col. Roosevelt was equally em phatic In expressing himself on this subject. His letter contained one pass age which presented Bryan's false "par amount" Issue In a novel aspect, and made a valuable addition to the liter ature of the present campaign. ROOSEVLT TELLS THE STORY. Col. Roosevelt said: "Properly speaking, the question Is not whether we shall expand for we have already expanded but whether we shall contract. The Philippines are now part of Amer ican territory. To surrender them would bo to surrender American territory." Bryan's position could not be more cleavly explained nor more forcibly expressed in ftve times the space allot ted to him in these threo sentences. Bryan Is not an anti-lmperlallst, for no such thing as imperialism threatens the United States, and no American .Is an Imperialist. Bryan Is a rontrac tlonlst; a eontractlonlst of American territory, If he has his way. (Jovcrnor Roosevelt Is an antl-eontractionlst. The governor's letter effectively sup plemented McKinley's discussion of the Philippine policy with this straight forward proposition: "To turn over the Islands to Aguinal do and his followers would not be to give self government to the Islanders; under no circumstances would the ma jority thus gain self government. They would simply be put at the mercy of a syndicate of Chinese half breeds, un der whom corruption would flourish far more freely than ever It flourished under Tweed, while tyrannical oppres sion would obtain to a degree only possible under such an oligarchy." Many Democrats throughout Penn sylvania and the Union at large have refused to follow Bryan in the present canvass on account of his so-called "antl-lmperlallstlc" campaign. WANTS COMMERCIAL EXPANSION. A well known Democrat of this city, who, for years, was prominent In the councils of the Democracy of Pennsyl vania, In commenting upon the Bryan plan of campaign yesterday, Bald: For years the Democratic party - has been clamoring for a return of the old commercial prosperity; the prosperity which sent the clipper ships of the United States Into ev ery sea on the globe, but now that un ideal opportunity is offered whereby the long sought end may be attained the party turns its bacfusquarely upon It. The Demo cratic party Is in the position of Moses viewing the expanse of promised land and then dropping dead. As for Bryan, ho is simply adding another chapter to his old time fallacy of 16 to 1. I believe In expansion for com mercial reasons. Trade with the east was the financial making of all the ancient nations, and It ac counts for the present prosperity of many modern ones. Columbus stumbled over this continent while searching for an easier route to the East Indies than the path then known, and since the time of Tyro the east has supplied the commer cial wealth of the most prosperous nations of Europe. At first It was trade wllh India only and some of the adjacent Islands. Later Japan and China became big factors, and now, when the United States Is In a position to practically monopo lize, or If not that to control, a great part of the eastern com merce, the Domocratlc party throws up Its hands and protests. Consider the advantage which this country hag over others. In the first place our Pacific coast Is about 3,000 miles nearer to tho eastern trading center than any of the European nations. We have besides a half way station in the Hawaiian Islands, and In the Phil ippines what has rightly been termed the doorway of the east. Thus equipped, the United States Is second to no other country In Its ability to carry on a successful trade with China and Japan." No patriotic and wida awake Amer ican should support Bryan.
