Takt, Rep Committeeman M. W. GORXAM, Dem. Committeeman. TIONKSTA TWP. Tue Republican voters of Tioneeta towntihip will meet at the Township House, Saturday, January 23, 1!09, at i o'clock p. in., sharp, for the purpose of nominating a ticket for the February election. J. B. Eirv, Committeeman. Col. Brian says be has been defeated three time on principle. And this not withstanding the fact that lie baa three times changed bis principles. Osk ot tbe features of Southern senti ment at present is that Mr. Taftcan draw a larger ami more earnest audience than any other speaker can bring out. Thk receipts of the Suez Canal are in creasing at the rate of f 1,500,000 yr and the dividends are never less than 0 per cent. Pauama croakers should look over the facts at Suez. Mr. Burton's promotion to the Senate from Ohio positively eliminates Senator Dick as well as Foraker. These are live ly times in the senatorial field. A double play is also pending in New York. Jcdor Taft Insists that he will not be president elect until atier the electors shxll have met and formally ratified the November vote. Technically be may not be president, but pyrotecbuically he is. According to a recent report of the Geological Survey one fourth of Alaska is a coal field. As Alaska contains 531 000 square miles, the prospect of warm ing up the north pole when reached is good. M r Bryan's paper prints whit is called a vindication of Haxkel. It must conse quently be inferred that Mr. Kryan sud denly dropped Mr. Haxkel during the campaign as a temporary emergency measure. Tue physician wbo will accompany Mr. Roosevelt on bis African trip bashad tweuty-fine years' experience in bis pro fession and is also noted as a naturalist. Another accomplishment may count In his favor. He is a dead shot. It is altogether within tbe range of probabilities that many of tbe Congress men who voted to lay the President's message on tbe table will experience the sensation of being "laid on the shelf when next they come up for re-election. The Standard Oil Company wants to retain a residence in the State of Mis souri under promise that it will be a peaceful and law-abiding citizen. Through tbe mellowing influence of time and an aggressive attorney general tbe oc topus Is not so dictatorial as it used to be. A paymaster who used to oross a Ne vada desert in a wagon with a large armed guard, now makes the trip in an automobile that covers the fifty miles in one hour, under tbe protection of a single shotgun. The speed defies pursuit on horseback n an open country. Definite announcement bas been made by J. T. Waysou, a member of tbe territorial board of health at Honolulu who has devoted much time and atten tion to the study of leprosy, that a cure of tbedisesse bad been found and that a patient alllicted witb leprosy had been restored to health. The sensational murder trial at Media, Delaware county of Mrs. Erb and ber sister, Mrs Beisel, lor tbe shooting of Capt. J. Clayton Erb, husband of tbe first named came to an end last week by the acquittal of the women on the ground of sell-defense. Tbe prominence of tbe dead man in Philadelphia politics made the case one of more than local interest, and those who followed the details closely are pretty generally of tbe opinion the verdict was about ri.ht. Juixik Taft is now tbe real President elect. Yesterday the Presidential Elect ore met in the capitals of tbe various states and cast tbeir ballots for President and Vice President, and to cboote mes sengers to carry the results to Washing ton, where the official count will take pi uce in Fehiuary before tbe two bouses of Congress assembled in joint session. Until this had been done Mr. Talt bad really not been elected, but tbe men wbo would do the balloting direct for him were elected in November. It is stated on good authority that Auditor General Robert K. Young, will vigorously oppose any effort to induce the coming legislature tn repeal the mer cantile tax law. It has been repeatedly intimated that such an effort would be made. The law was first enacted in 1821. General Young points out tbat witb the increased expenditures in behalf of va rious forms of pulilic charities and useful state enterprises it would be unwise to consider any proposition that would re duce the income of the commonwealth. He believes the objections urged against the mercantile tax are really due to the manner of Its enforcement, and as this is improving year by year he thinks It w ill soon be largely overcome. Sinck the withdrawal of Congressman Dalzell and about all the other Allegheny county candidates, Mr. George T. Oliver has praoticaily a clear field as the success or to Senator Knox when that gentleman shall place Lis resignation in the bands of Gov. Stuart, wbicb will be some time in the present montb It is thought. Mr. Oliver bas been unanimously endorsed by tbe legislative delegation of bis coun ty, and many members of tbe present legislature have assured him of tbeir sup port. He sizes up to tbe situation in all respects, and Pennsylvania's every in terest will be ably looked after In tbe upper branch of Congress witb Oliver aud Penrose in the Senate. Two cents will carry a letter, weigh ing less tban ao ounce, from any part of the United States to any part of Germany Tuis postal agreement went into effect ou the 1st of January. But there la very important modification In tbe arrange ment tbal has escaped most of the news papers. Tbe two cent rate applies only to carriage on steamers that sail direct from New York to German ports. On veels that go via England and several other countries, tbe rate remain at five cents Hence a hurry-up letter should have a five cent stamp. Letters tor Germany, with a two-cent stamp attached, are beld In New York until a mail-carrying ship that goes direct to Germany leaves tbe port. Thk vacancy on the supreme court bench in this sta'e soon to be created by the expiration of Justice Mitchell' term is atti acting considerable attention in tbe northwestern section of the Common wealth, mainly because this great section bas no representation on that bench Al ready three distinguished Judges have well developed booms well under way, and their friends are energetically push ing their claims. Tney are, Judges Criswell of Venango, Bouton ot McKean, and Reed of Jefferson, and each one of them is strongly backed. We of tbe northwest would be delighted to see one or tbe other succeed, but its going to be nut of the question for sll of them to get there, and it ought to be plain to them tbat double or treble-teaming it will not win fight of this nature. Get together gentlemen. This cherry can't be divided into two or three bites. When Matbues, tbe former State Treasurer, died, says the Oil City Bliz zard, it was generally believed tbat his nervous breakdown was a result of bis conviction and sentonce as one of tbe State Capitol grafters. And now comes word that Sanderson, tbe Capitol "trim mer," who collapsed in couit on receiv ing sentence, is critically ill, and is likely to follow bis colleague to the grsve. It is strange bow illness bas pursued nearly every man beld responsible for this pub lic wrong. Another of them, James M. Sbumaker, is a very sick man, and may not recover. James C. Jeffries, tbe warrant clerk, who knew more about the payments for the trimmings than anyone else, died suddenly, more from worry, it is believed, than from disease. Payue, contractor for tbe building, and indicted on one charge, diod after a lingering ill ness. These may be only coincidences, tbat might have happened if there bad been no wrongdoing and bringing to justice of these men. But it looks as it one of the heaviest burdens any man tries to carry Is the sentence of guilt and shame, pronounced upon him by a court of justice aud ratified by public opinion. By a vote of 212 to 35 Congress on Fri day administered what we read in tbe headlines of tbe daily press Is entended 48 a "stinging rebuke" to the President. The "rebuke" consisted In tbe refusal of the House to receive that portion of tbe President's message ref 'rring to tbe work of tbe secret service men, aud whicb inti mated that tbe honorable Congressmen didn't want to be "watched." Tbe dig nity of Congress was offended, as it were, and that's too bad. Nobody believes tbat all the Representatives are bad, noither does anybody balieve they are all good and don't need watching. If a Congress man is straight and loyal to bis constit uents watching neither hurts nor annoys him, hence it wouldn't seem necessary to otl'er this socalled "rebuke" to the Presi dent. Mr. Roosevelt still bas the confi dence of tbe American people far above the power of Congress to destroy, and it is quite likely tbat many of those who voted to rebuke him because be bas a habit of calling things by tbeir right name will find difficulty in bringing tbeir con stituents into accord witb tbe Congress ional notion on this subject. "Hark, bark, tbe dogs do bark," Did you ever note whiffet barking at tLe heels of a great big personage and how very little the bark amounted too? Do you uote tbe "barkers" at tbe heels of our grand, glorious, courageous President in the last days of bis unparalleled adminis tration? And bow tbe little puppies are dodging out from all corners to get a nip at tbe passing heels! Poor, puny curs! How they'd like to sink their nasty faugs Into bis flesh if tbey bad the courage to get near enough. Every last one of them that bas scraped together enough to buy a few dollars woith of corporation stock bas turned "barker," even a few of tbe little- pated country editors(?) have caught tbe infection and are doing tbeir utmost which is insignificant enough to help along witb the noise and din. Meautime the incorruptible, undefiled Roosevelt pursues tbe course of righteousness and unfaltering devotion to the rights of all the people, God bless him. When all these puppets have gone into their boles and been forever forgotten and un missed the name of Roosevelt will be honored and revered as the greatest apostle of honesty, courage, and loyalty to tbe principle of the "square deal," tbat bas ever graced tbe greatest ofllceof the great est nation on eartn. 18100 HKWAItl), 9IOO.

Wonderful Friendship Manifested For Senator Penrose, and G. T. Olivet Received With Enthusiasm Gov ernor and Legislature to Work in Unison. The organization of the present Pennsylvania Legislature was attend ed with less strife and contention than has characterized the organiza tion ot that body in nearly a quartet of a century past. The regular Kopttb ltcans. largely in the majority, iliac everything their own way. The policy which has riven to the individual mem bers of 1he party equal voice in all affairs ia w hich the Republican organ ization to concerned, lias brought the party as a whole Into its own. and the Indications are hat ouly lojris'.ation of Interest to the whole people will re suit from the pending session of th lawmakers. United States Senator Roles Penrose was ahnoat unanimously indorsed at hi own successor. In the caucus ol the Republican members of the Gen eral Assembly but a few scattering votes were cast against his reelec tion, and It seems iiighly probable that those few votes will b. cast with the preat majority when the actual reelec tion of Senator Penrose takes placo on Jan. 19. when the General Assem bly -will meet In Joint session for that purpose. Senator Penrose suffered very re cently a severe affliction in the death of his father. But feeling It was a duty he owed the people of the state to meet with the legislators and there by get more closely in touch with the wishes and desires of the people, he was in Harrisburg before the open ing of the Assembly and remained there until tfie adjournment taken for the purpose of allowing the commit tees to be made up. While in Harris burg his friends gathered about him from every section of the state, and many of those who were pledged to vote against him in the legislative caucus pledged their support and influ ence for his reelection next week. The friendship manifested on every hand for Senator Penrose, the accept ed party leader, promises well for the future of the Republican party. George T. Oliver, who seems to be the only genuine candidate for United States senaior to succeed Senator P. C. Knox when the latter shall resign to go into the Taft cabinet as secre tary of slate, attended the organiza tion of the Legislature. He had head quarters at the Commonwealth hotel, where he met legislators from every part of the state and where he wbf given kindly consideration by Republi cans of every degree, large and small. It seems a settled fact that Mr. Oliver will be chosen as the successor to Mr. Knox with no more of a contest than accompanied the caucus nomination of Senator Penrose as his own successor. Mr. Oliver made many new friends during his stay in Harrisburg. He also met a host of old friends and upon every 'hand his candidacy was received with genuine enthusiasm, and the Re publican party was generally congrat ulated on the political conditions which seem certain to provide for the elec tion of two I'nited States senators at the same session of the Legislature without an unseemly struggle, ine fact that both Senator Penrose and Mr. Oliver represent the highest types of American citizenship both pol ished and capable reflects graciously unon the Republican party as a whole and the party managers in particular. The election of John F. Cox of Alle gheny county as speaker was in no manner a surprise to the Republicans of the state. Governor Stuart's message to the Legislature was one of the most Inter esting papers coming from the state's executive in years. His sincere and earnest way of putting his recommen dations, his very apparent grasp on the affairs of the Commonwealth and his ability to say Just what he means gave to his message a decidedly busi nesslike tone and its reading was lis tened to with marked respect and In terest. The Governor fairly glows 1n dis cussing the efforts made and makl-g for the protection of the health of the people of the state. He discusses In no uncertain manner the need of bet ter conditions for road building. He treats liberally and intelligently many other important trabjec ta. but the put lie nealLh and the necessity for good roads seem to appeal to him with the greatest force, and about these topics be writes like an expert. There are distinct signs that the Legislature will have much effective help from the Governor, and the Gov ernor seems to have positive assur ance of getting about all the state wants and really needs from the Leg islature. Speaker Cox Is a personal friend of tho Governor. The Governor will ask him for nothing not for the best interests of the state, and it is Just as certain that Mr. Cox will give to the Governor all his Influence In letting for the slate those things which will best serve the people. The Senate as a whole is also in genial harmony with the executive, and so it is that all conditions point to a leg islative session which will help large ly to make the administration of Gov ernor Stuart go down in history as a brilliant success.

BYER-4, Solomon By era was born Deo. 17, 1833, and died of chronic Brigbt's disease, at bis home in Tlonesta township, F rest couuty, Pa., Jan. 8, 1009. In 1855 he was united In marrli-ge witb Sarah Ann Mealy, and to this union seven children were born, six of whom remain to mourn tbe death of tbeir father, as follows: Mrs, Christopher Kagle of Emlenton; Mrs. Jerry Black of Warren; Mrs. Peter Bra- dylmugh, Mrs, Heck Brumbaugh, Philip and Kdward Dyers, near the old home. For many years Mr. Byers bad been devoted and consistent member of tbe Evangelical church. He was a man hon ored and respected for his kindness, gen tility and unllincblng honesty, against whom no word of reproach was ever ut tered by his neighbors or acquaintances. Funeral services were held at Mt. ion church near his late borne ou Monday, aud the body was laid to rest In the cem etery adjoining tbe church. Rev. F. Tun in ins conducted the services. There's a Hi ssing link at home, A dear father left today, And we trust In realms of glory, Where we know be'll always slay. There's a missing link at home, The children bathed In tears Kor a father long beloved, Whom they loved so many years. But he left the dear old borne Kor anoiher far above, And took with him a Saviour's And his dear chtldreu'a love.
