Wo lire therefore unalterably opposed to all lloviccs and schemes for tlie debasement cf kur currency and to all evasions and cotn liromlses of a question so closely affecting Individual and national credit and honor. I "We heartily indorse the administra tion of President Cleveland and congratu late the country upon the firmness, wia lloiii and ability showed by him In all ■natters affecting the interests of the coun try. We especially commend Ills wlso, de termined and successful efforts to main tain tho national credit, to avert financial nnd business disturbance and to protect fho country 's honor. "Tho Democracy of Pennsylvania pre sents to the national convention as Its [unanimous choice for tho presidency the fmnio of Robert E. Pattison.

Tho company has boon playing an engage mont at Parsons' theater slnco Monday last. Tho guests of tho Heubleln hotol ware alarmed by the roport of pistol shots and by tho tllght of a young woman down tho stairs und through tho hallways. Sho was pursuod by un Infuriated mao bearing In ids hand a pistol. Tho mau was Edwin Bither and tho young woman his wife. By tho aid of T. K. Laird, a guest of tho hotol, and Clerk Kstlow, Hither was secured and held until polloo arrived, when he was arrested and locked up. Blthor was greatly excited and was evi dently under tho influonco of liquor. Blthor und Gertrude Ash n were mar rlod In Brooklyn three years age, tho bride being at that tlmu but 17 years of ago. For a titno tho couple lived happily to gether, but about a year after the mar riage they separated. They lived apart for u year, when a reconciliation was effected, and all wont well until six months ago, when thoy again separated, tho wife find ing a position in tho Crano company and Bither remaining In Boston. Since then Blthor has tried repeatedly to induoo his wife to sec him and to live with him, but says he has always been thwarted by Mrs. Ashlan, his mother-in law, who told him sho should not allow her daughter to receive his letters. Appealed For Money. Mrs. Ashlan accompanies her daughter on tho tour with tho Crane company, and when the troupo reached Hartford last Monday tlioy put up at tho Hotel Heub leln. Front there Mrs. Hither sent this telegram on Tuesday to her husband in Bosto»: Hartford, April 28. To Edwin: Pleaso send me some money at the Houbleln hotel. Gertrude. On receipt of this Hither gave notice to the management of "The Hoodman Blind" company, In Boston, that he should sever his connection with the company and go to Hartford to rejoin his wife. Boforo leaving Boston ho bought a revolver. On arriving in this city he visited tho various hotels and drank freely. Whlla looking over the register at tho United States hotel he was recognized by Mnrlon Abbott, one of tho Crane company. Miss Abbott at once notified Dallas Tyler of her husband's presence In Hartford, and the young actress and her ntothor paid tlioir hill at tho Heubleln and Instructed the clork If any one called for them to say that they had left. They thon went to their room on the fourth tloor. Bither musthavo seen them, for he at once went up etnlr4 and knocked loudly for admittance. Tho door was opened by Mrs. Ashlan, and Bither went In. An angry altercation onsuod and soon the door opened and the young wife rush ed screaming through the hall and down the stairs. In the hall Bither fired one shot, and when bis wifo reached the foot of tho Rtu'.rs leading to the third Door he dls chaigcd his pistol three times more in rapid succession. Tho wainsoollng of tho halls was cut by the flying bullots. Mrs. Ashlan hung on to her son-in-law wltilo ho was pursuing his wife, and this doubtless caused his defective aim. All Hither lmd to -sny in defense or ex planation of bis desperate attempt upon his wife's lifo was that it was a caso of mother-in-law. Mrs. Ashlan and Dallas Tyler were very reticent about the Inci dents of tha affair. May !!o a Filibuster.
