Poverty will be ameliorated if assets on tbis scale are comins into fash ion. We've a couple of f 10,000 "setters" ourself, by-the-way. In a review of work on the Panama Canal Col. Roosevelt states that tbe Cbagres River bas been brought under complete control. 'I his feat alone is one of the most remarkable lu the history of engineering. Expenditures on the Panama Canal are at the rate of 130,000,000 a year, but tbe treasury meets tbe demand without trouble it seems. No other nation could so iu to sucb an enterprise and borrow money for It, if necessary, at 2 per cent, Thk Franklin News suggests that, as a matter of safety in these days of buzz wagons, persons traveling at night with equine motive power should have a Ian ten attached to their vehicle. The object la to avoid overworking the surgeons and undertakers. It is a good suggestion. Thb nomination of Hon. P. M. Speer s the Republican candidate for Congress in this district gives very geueral satis faction In this section, where the candi date bas bad a large acquaintance for several years. Those who know Mr. Speer best will endorse every good word spoken of nim. He is clean-handed, able, energetic, and above every other requi site, honest, with a spinal column as firm as steel for right principles and clean motives. He will grow in popularity as be mingles with the people, aud in bis olticial course will come out just as clean as be went in. Tbere is nothing wrong with Speer. About 600 percent profits is what tbe officials of the post otfice department figure must be made by tbe gangs ol men who are selling "city lots" in tbe New Jersey swamps by mall. It is now pro posed to stop tbe frsud. "Seacrest" is tbe name of one of those idyllic places. It was advertised by the promoters as being "within a short distance of Atlantic City laid out with beautiful avenues and broad streets, high aud dry aud sanitary." The authorises find that tbe actual place is swamp and wild land which goes begging at 3 an acre, and as tbe asenta make an acre up into 12 lots; that makes each lot cost about 23 cents. The promoters pre tend to award the lots as prizes to smart people, and all they try to get out of them Is f 1 to "cover tbe cost of cooveyaucing,' etc. ' Replying to the attack of the New York Evening Post, Colonel Roosevelt referred to that journal as a liar, explain Ing that be used the world scientifically and descriptively, not as a mere epithet, or vindictively, but "because no other term expresses the fsct with the necessary precision." Continuing, Mr. Roosevelt said: "Tbe statement of tbe Eveuing Post Is not only false and malicious, not only in direct contradiction of the facts, but is such thst it could only bave been made by a man wbo, knowing tb facts, deliberately Intended to pervert them. Such an act stands on a level Inlamy with the worst actever performed by a corrupt member of a legislature or city official, and stamps tbe writer with tbe same moral brand that stamps the bribe-taker." Peter M. Speer For Congress. Hon. Peter M. Speer, the Republican candidate for congress, wbb born in Oak land township, Venango county, Pa., December 29, 18C2. He attended the county schools until be was l." years of ago and by that time qualified as a teacher worked at tbe job during the winter and farmed in summer until be accumulated enough money to pay bis tultiou for one year at Allegheny college at Meadville and one term at Westminister college, New Wilmington, Pa. lielheu retururd to Venango couuty, taught school for two years more and then entered Washington A Jetl'erson college graduating with the clans ot'18b7.

In November, lsutl, was elected a member of the House of Kepresentativts and was one of the strongest members of that body In point of character and ability, being found on the right side of all questions that came before tbe House. With Mr. Speer In Congress tbe 28lh district will bave a representative who will rauk with any in the land. H0X. P. M. SPEER FOR C0XURESS. Conference at Franklin, Saturday, Names Popular Oil lily Lawyer as Republican Nominee. The conferees ofibe Republican party of the 28th Congressional district met in Franklin last Saturday afternoon and placed in nomination Hon. Peter M. Speer, of Oil City, to till tbe vacancy caused by the withdrawal from the ticket of Joseph C. Sibley. Tbe conference was made up of the following duly chosen representatives of the five counties com prising the district: Elk -S. R. Armstrong, ofJohnsonburg. Forest-C. A. Randall, of Tionesla. Mercer J. A. Stranaham, Jr., of Mer cer; J. L. Greer, of Stoneboro; Oscar J. Denny, of Sharon. Venaiigo-C. R. Galbralh, of Franklin; Colonel George C. Rickards, of Oil City. Warren W. P. Nutting, of Youngs- ville; M. H. Shick, of Shellleld. Mr. Nutting was chosen chairman, and Messrs, Galbralh and Denny wore named as secretaries of the mteting. Upon tbe call of tbe chairman for nomi nations Elk county yielded to Venango, and Col. Rickards placed Mr. Speer'a name before tbe conference. Mr. Ran dall of Forest seconded the nomination of Mr. Speer in a neat speech in which be said in part: 'We should name for this office a man who will represent tbe whole district and one who will carry out the cardinal prin ciples of the Republican party. Forest county lavors straight line Republican ism, the principles espoused by McKln ley, Roosevelt and Tall. It favors a pro tective tariff, which bas enabled this dis trict to build up its industries. Forest county Hants a man nominated for con gress wbo will carry out its wishes in this respect. In congress questions arise that require atrong and forceful uieu to solve Item and that's the kind we should have. Forest county bas no complaint about the treatment it bas received in the past, for we have been well taken care of. How ever, we expect some consideration, . Of course, we are a small county, but don't forget that we are always Republican. As tbe representative of Forest county, I second the nomination of Mr. Speer." Mercer county presented the name of ex-Judge Samuel LI. Miller, tbe nominat ing speech being made by Mr.Slranabau. HON. PETER M. SPEER, Republican nominee for Congress in tbe Twenty-eighth District. The question was then submitted to tbe conferees and a vote was taken which re sulted I'' six voles being cast for Speer and three for Miller, tbe Mercer county conferees voting for the latter gentleman. Tbe nomination of Mr, Speer was then made unanimous upon tbe motion of one ol the Mercer conferees. Throughout, tbe meeting was one of complete harmony, and it adjourned with tbe best of feeling all round. Mr. Speer was called upon for a speech, and after thanking tbe con ference very heartily for the great honor conferred upon him, said in part: "The Republican party bas bad from its inception, and still possesses, thst vital force, acquired by it from the many great men wbo bave shaped its policies, which gives it t lie power to take up, discuss and solve those problems of government, the correct solution of which will lead to tbe advancement of the nation's welfare. Its past is a record of achievements, rather than promises; of deeds, rather than words. It preserved the nation from destruction; it made liberty universal; it bas taken advanced grouud upon every new question of government policy; It has enacted laws by which these new policies have become a part of our law and put them into effective operation; It has ever been the party of progress. Not only our nation but the world owes it a heavy debt of gratitude lor its achieve ments of the past, and it is the political party which is to-day the hope of those who look for further betterment and up lifting of the human race. I bave faith in its sincerity aud its power to accomplish. I am confident of its success. I will not at this time attempt to define or discuss any of the issues of this campaign; I hope at a later dale, fully and candidly, to dis cuss them from the public platform. I bave an abiding faith in the Intelligence of the people of this congressional dis trict; I do not believe they will be led astray by false and fabricated Issues, from a consideration of the real issues of the campaigu. The Republican party Is in the right In the issues now before tbe na tion, and I believe tbe voters ol this oon gressional district will so decide. Again tuauking you for the honor of this nomi nation, 1 pledge you to make every hon orable effort to win, and should I succeed my hope is, that my conduct In this high olllce will be such as will enable me to continue to have your coulideuce and trust."

U. oounty convention held tbere recently: On tbe evening of August 30th Nebras ka was houored by the presence of three eminent ministers, who came in l espouse to the Invitation of the local committee who had charge of that evening. They were the Rev. Harry A. Bailey, pastor of the Prenbyterian church of Tlonesta, the Rev. J. F. Scherer, pastor of the Presby terian church of Endeavor, and the Rev. W. O. Calhoun, pastor of tbe M. E. churches of Tlonesta and Nebraska. For tboir kiudness In coming we think they deserve more than simply a passing no tice. The time being limited they oould not dojustice to tbe great subject of in temperance, or to themselves as orators. Neither can we dojustice to them in this late report, but it Is at least fair to say they were each capable of making tbe sole address of tbe evening. Rev. Mr. Bailey was the first speaker. He gave ua oue of the most forcible, clear-out talks on the foibles of the day It has ever been our good fortuue to listen to. He spoke of tbe different forms of Intemperance we as a nation are drifting Into over-dressing, foolish fashions, ex pensive and elaborate cooking, and other evils tbat sensible men and women should shun. For the man who Is a'l business to tbe exclusion of everything else, or the man wbo Is all for religion to the exclusion of all else, the world bas little noed. Statistics show that the con sumption of liquor has increased in tbe last ten years and national prohibition is the only remedy for the cure of drunk, enness. The Rev. Mr. Scherer took as the basis of his remarks the willful waste that seems characteristic of the age. A waste of time, of money, of ambition, and of energy. A good Illustration of tbis was tbe story of two working men and the manner in which tbey spent th9ir spare time at noon, tbe one in perfecting an in vention, tbe other in teaching bis dog to stand on its hind legs. He thought the temperance cause was hindered by a waste of effort In too many different channels; tbat if all good men and true would unite their energies the cause of Intemperance could be stamped out. The Rev. Mr.'Calhoun was tbe last to speak and tbe hour for adjournment ap proaching, be made his remarks quite brief, touching on some points made by tbe others. He explained the increase of liquor drinking as being due to tbe large foreign element in Pennsylvsnia aud other states. He placed himself on reo ord as opposed to tbe teaching of scien tific temperance to childreu under 12 years of age, believing in moral training up to tbat age. He considered tbe times not yet ripe for absolute prohibition.
