An bow latet (bepriaoner was fonnd t<> beill and an ambulanee was called. Dr. Broglia, wbo leapooded, said he was BUffering from acntfl eirrhosis of tlie liver and was in a aerioua condiUon. Not lotiji after the reinoval of the doctor, tWO wonien visited tbe police -tation. Tbey ioQUired about the doctor, -aid he had been ill and that the ehild belouged to B wealthy family on Long Island. Tbey. loo, refnaed t,. roveal the idetititv of tbfl paretit or parcnts of the ehild.

Now thal tbe Pennaylvania Railroad Wagfl dispute I- settled, otliciaN of otlier lims aie pr.-dicting that President McCrea will diacontinua the policy of mainiaining a higher -tamlard of pay than that prevailing on most roads. Among those who discussed thesub ject in Philadelphia on Tuesday weteex p.rts oonnected whh the Baltimore and Ohio, the Philadelphia and Reading and the Lehigb Valley. These ajaerted that the Pennaylvania had k.-pt other companiea in "hot water" for years. their managcrs being constantly in a state ...' fear leal at any time tbey be conftonted with demamls that would seriously affed their corporatioii' nnancea. Por this reaaon, it was said also that the railroada of the coontry were atixiou- that the l'etinsylvania shotild refuse to yield to demamls that meant increaaed wagee. This th.- Pennayl vania did. It is maintained that Mr. McCrea and his sitcccssors will let the wage acale atand as it is. that no more voluntary increases will be made, at l.ast not until otlier lines have readied the Pennsylvania'a higber wage level Thereaftor, aay the offlciala referred to. the Pennaylvania will be fonnd d< ing what the other roads do and noth . 11 _: more.

In this way the Outlook in its eurrent iaaofl sums up an editorial on tbe coming campaign. Although not signcd by Theodore Hoosevelt, and not written in his char acteristic style. the artiele is known to to oxpreaa in many reepecta his views, and tbflffl is good reason to believe that he was ,-onsulted in its preparation. "The paramoonl iaaue,'1 aaya tbfl artiele, "on which tbfl Ameiican pflonlfl will have to vote in the campaign this fall is not between the teptiblican and democratwpartiea; bfltwflen protection and free tradc; between Ballinger and anti-llallinger. It is between oligarehy and democracy," _ ST. \\\r. \ KVKRATKI). A great and devottt congregation at tended St. Ann's Catholtc Cburch Philadelphia Tuesday to venerate a relic ofthe patnui saint.
