ON the 16th inst., the relatives and friends of John Humphrey, Esq., of Worth township, this county, cele brated his 54th birthday, in the form of a picnic, in a grove near his resi dence.

The Dispatch-Republican, the Sharon Herald, and the GrcenviNe Valley News, of Mercer county, all either approve or copy the article ap pearing in the CITIZEN of the 15th inst., relative to changing the present Conferrce system of making district nominations, for Congress and State Senate. We have not noticed anything in the Beaver or Lawrence county Re publican papers on the subject as yet. This may arise from the fact that these counties are the two smaller ones of our new Congressional district, and from a fear therefore existing that they would not have an equal chance in a nomination if the system be changed to either of the new ones proposed, to wit: By either the popular vote or by the representative delegate system, being the only two systems proposed to be substituted If this be the fear or feeling existing in those counties we think it is a great mistake on their part, and that but a short trial of either the proposed changes might soon demonstrate this fact. Under either change the braini est, the ablest and the best man offer ing in a district, would be the one most likely to be chosen. By the popular vole plan in particular all county lines would be broken down or disappear, and the candidates of each county could and would enter into and canvass in all the counties, thus making an acquain tance with all the people of all the counties they aspire to represent in Congress or the Senate. The result would be that the man with the best reputation, who was considered the fittest and best to serve the people, would in all probability be nominated, let him reside in whatever county of the district be might. For these and other reasons we have always felt inclined to favor the popular vote system. No argument can be urged against it in a district that would not apply with equal force in a county ; for in a county there are small or large Townships or Boro's., as regards vote or population, and yet the popular vote system is ex isting, without complaint, as it does at present in three counties of our new Congressional districts, to wit: Beayer, Butler and Lawrence coun ties. Under the representative delegate system, the other change proposed, the principal object in view would also be obtained, to wit: a deliver ance from the Con/erreesystem.which was nothing more nor less than a personal system, the candidate of a county securing three personal friends as his conftrrees, who were in honor bound to adhere to and obey his wishes. By the representative dele gate system is meant the election of delegates, from each county, and in proportion to the Republican vote of each county; these delegates to meet in a district Convention, held some wbero in the district. While, as we say, the matter by this plan would also be taken out of the hands of the candidates, or their conferreefj-ind the said delegates be elected by the voters, yet to our mind that is about all that is gained under the delegate system. These men, thus chosen, would still be, more or less, subject to the in fluence and interest of the candidate presented by their County, and to that county pride always existing or that can be created. This would be natural, and could not in reason be avoided or complained of. Besides, the candidates of each county would look after the choice of these dele gates, and endeavor, if possible, to have their personal friends brought out and elected such delegates. The result would be—and has been under this system where existing— that as dead a lock often occurs as under the conferree system. The chances are lessened, but they still exist and happeD. Then the proper ap portioning of the delegates among the different counties is a matter that has always required care, trouble and expense. Then, the expense to can didates of the meeting in district Conventions, of to large a body of delegates,is to be considered. In this district the whole number would probably be not less than forty. The number would be obtained by the ratio fixed for a delegate, but whether large or small the expenses of the district Convention must necessarilly be large. All these ob jections would be avoided by a direct appeal to the voters through a popu lar vote "of the people, by the people and for the people." But, as we have said, we are not tenacious as to which system. The matter is to get a change from the old conferree system. Mercer county has led the way by appointing a Com mittee of three to meet with similar Committees to be appointed by the other counties. These Committees will have the matter ia charge and agree upon the change to be made. The Chairman of the County Com mittee here will, we are informed, move in the matter before long. If Beaver and Lawrence counties follow and appoint similar Committees a meeting of them will of course be held and the matter discussed, and a conclusion arrived at. And the sooner this is done the better. Simi lar movements are bt-ing made iu other districts of this State, and this time of year is thought the most con venient to bring about any political action of this nature. What we have said above will ap j ply to our Senatorial as well as to our Congressional district. —General Simon Cameron, at the age of ninety, sailed from New York last week on a tour, during which he proposes to acquaint himself with the politics of Europe.

RED RIBBON. Our Water Works and Water. MESSIIS. EDITORS Complaints as to the character of the water the citi zens of our place now have to use, and as to the management of the Water Works, are so numerous and strong that public attention should be called to them. As to the water itself, for some time past it has been unGt for use, in our houses, either to drink, to cook or to wash with. The least rain appears to color and dirty it to this extent. Should this state of affairs be longer endured ? The Company is bound in law to give pure water and enough of it. But recently we have been told that it is scarce, and cautioned not to use it for sprink ling the streets or other purpose?. This, with the fact that it is so unfit for near all other purposes, have caused the people, who pay well aad high for it, to inquire if there is uo remedy ? It is the duty of the Com pany to furnish the water they are obligated to, and it is our right to have it. It is said the water at the works on the creek is not filtered as it should be. And a better and larger supplv of it, it is said, could easily be procured by the Company sinking gome wells on f he creek and making other improvements that they should make. Will this be done ? And if not what should our people do ? As to the basin even worsa reports come. It is reported that boys bathe in it and even dogs arc seen to swim in it. Dead fish we know have been found in the pipes. Our purpose is to call attention to these complaints so that some remedy may be devised. A CITIZEN. Re-Union of 'the Campbell Family. EDS. CITIZEN: Will you pleaae give space in your valuable paper for a notice of an an niversary which took place at the house of Mrs. Nancy M. Campbell, near Concord Church, July 9, 1887. It was given in honor of Miss Mar tha Campbell, the only surviving daughter of Robert Campbell, it be iug her 70th birthday. Friends and neighbors concluded to give her a very pleasant surprise, and although the morning was wet, by ten o'clock quite a respectable audience had gathered in with their baskets well filled with the good thiugs that are common at such places. A table was ■ spread in the orchard near by and a sumptuous dinner was partaken of by about two hundred people (more or less). After dinner the meeting was called to order by electing Linn Christie, Chairman and K A. Kinzer, Sec'y. Samuel Russell led in prayer and D. J. Russell, one of our oldest citizens, was called upon and made a very appropriate address. The friends and neighbors having raised a purse i of money and brought with them nu merous presents, Capt. John G. Christie was called upon to address the meeting and present the presents to Miss Campbell, which he did in a very excellent manner. Mr. Christie gave a brief history of Hie Campbell family from the earliest settlement of this section of the county down to the present time, and spoke in the highest terms ot Miss Campbell, as being a very worthy person to bestow such honors upon. Josiah Campbell, i in a few well chosen remarks, thank , ed the people for the kindness shown ' to hia sister. The whole proceeding was inter spersed with very excellent music by the young people. The meeting ad journed by singing the long meter doxology and all returoed to their homes feeliDg that it was good to be there. K. A. K. Gov. Foraker Renominated At the OLio Republican State Convention, held at Toledo yester day, Governor J. IJ. Foraker was unanimously nominated for re election as Governor of that State. Hon. John Sherman was also endor sed as a candidate for the nex' Repub lican nomination for President, but not without considerable opposition. In our next issue we will be able to give the proceedings of the Ohio Con vention more fully. ESTRAY STOCK. The Law Relating to Horses, Cattle, Etc., Running at Large, Condensed. W hen auy person shall discover on his or hi-r enclosed or improved lands, anv stray cattle, horse, mule or sheep, it is lawful to take up the same ; and it is the duty of the person so doing to give notice to the owner, if ho or she can be readily found, but if other wise such person shall within four days deliver to the township clerk, a desciption of the marks (natural or artificial) of such stray in writing, or in some other satisfactory way ; and for everv neglect or refusal so to do, the person subjects himself to a pen alty of five dollars, to be recovered as debts of like are recoverable. It is the duty of the township clerk, under the same penalty for neglect or refusal, to enter the same in his book, for which he is entitled to the follow ing fees, viz: , for each head of horse kind, fifty cents; for each head ot cattle, twenty-five cents, and each head of sheep, six cents, to be paid by the person delivering the notice, the person to have the privilege of retaining the stray or strays, till the fees are reimbursed by the owner, and pay all reasonable charges for publishing notice (in clerk's book) which shall not exceed six cents a mile from his residence to the place of keeping the book, and all reason able expense for keeping such stray or strays as well as the damage done by the same. If the owner appears and neglects or refuses to pay the above mentioned charges, &c., or the parties cannot agree then either of them may complain to any Justice of the Peace of the county, who is re quired to issue his warrant to three honest and disinterested freeholders of the neighborhood, to view the said trespass, to value and appraise the same, having due regard to the sufficiency of the fence of such enclo sure. aud the costs of the township clerk, and the cost of keeping said stray or strays, aud report the same to said Justice with all convenient speed. If the valuation, &c., amounts to more than the sum tendered by the owner, then the party taking up the same is entitled to costs, and the same as if no tender was made. But if it amouut to no more than was tendered then the judgment carries no costs, and the justice on the judg ment thus obtained can issue an ex ecution. But if the owner shall not appear within ten days after it shall have been taken up, then it is the party's duty to advertise it, (particularly describing the stray) in at least one newspaper of the county, and if no owner appears within sixty days from the time of said publication, the person taking up the same shall make application to any justica of the peace of his township who is author ized aud requested to issue his war rant to any constable within the township, aud to cause him to expose the stray or strays to public sale, after giving ten days' public notice by three or more notices in public placeß in said township, and after paying the costs aud charges, damages &c , to the party taking up the same, the justice shall pay the balauce to the county treasurer, if any balance there be "if the owner appears with in one year after tale aud proves his property to such stray or strays, then such justice or auy other in the eountv shall certify the same to the county treasurer who shall pay the whole amount of such surplus to said owner. After one year it belongs to the county and the owner is barred from recovering it. If any person takes up any stray or strays aud neg lects to give notice as required by law, they are entitled to no damages for trespass committed by said strays, and shall deliver it up the same to the owner without any fee, recom pense or reward whatsoever. We find the aboye in an exchange. Whether it is all law now or not we caunot say. But there are some parts of this old law that are said to be still iu force, und therefore we pub lish it Sea Serpent and Whale. A telegram from Fort Popham, Me., says : While Thomas Neilsou and Francis Ziegler, both of Phila delphia, were in bathing by moon light ou Friday evening, they were greatly startled by a huge object sud denly" appearing before them. It looked very similar to a barrel at first, but soon assumed a more lengthy appearance. The attention c>f seyeral persons was called to the object, and soon the beach was crowed with spectators. A scientific Boston gentleman asserted it was a sea serpent, and persons who saw the monster agreed with him. Suddenly crashing noises were audible near the pier. Instantly every one rushed to tbe scene and beheld one of the most startling sights ever recorded. The sea mounter was lashing about, snap ping his huge mouth like a steel trap, apparently endeavoring to bite some thing. Near him was some sort of fish with the same object in view. Both frequently came to the surface locked in each other's embrace. TLis performance continued lor nearly a quarter of au hour and then both of the combatants sank. Nothing was seen or heard the entire night, al though a watch was kept on all points of the beach. When the steamer Percy L. arrived in the morning her captain reported the startling intelligence that a whale was stranded on the liar near the beach and looked as though he had been gashed with harpoons. lie thought he was in a dying condition. A number of persons have gone to the bar and viewed the whale. He is covered with large, deep bites ar.d in some places threat pieces of flesh have been torn off. Nothing has been heard of the other participant as yet, but it is supposed that he got oil safely. A New Industry for Women. New York Tribune. A young woman has a card, iu the corner of which is the inscribed state ment that she is prepared "to person ally conduct" female visitors iu New York to places of amusement, ou shopping tours, or sight-seeing about the city. A great many women come to New York in the course of a year, the wives ol prominent and wealthy persons who require the attendance of Eouie oau to direct them about the city. The young woman has been so successful in securing the the patrouagc of these visitors that her income is three or four thousand dol lars a year. Some of the large shops have discovered that her iulluenee with shoppers is of value to them and pay her a commission upon Baled to customers that she brings to them. —Don't over-eat, und you will re duce tlic cnutieH of over-heatiug. Political Events of 1887. If this were not the year preceding the one in which occurs the great quadrennial contest for the Presi dency it would have little interest politically speaking. In only a few States will there be elections for State officers and members of the Legisla ture, and only three or four of these will possess a National interest. Five States will choose Governors—Mas sachusetts, Ohio, lowa, Kentucky aud .Maryland. The avowed purpose of the Democratic-Mugwump alliance to try and carry Massachusetts and so give Free Trade and the Cleve land boom a lift will lend au unusual animation to the canvass in that State. The Kentucky State campaign is already under way, the election oc curring at the usually early date of .August 1. The Republicans are making a praiseworthy fight under the lead of candidate Bradley. The Prohibitionists, the Labor element, the shameful mismanagement of the finances and the confessed inability ot the Democratic Governor to pro tect the lives and property of the peo ple would in almost any State except Kentucky make Democratic success uncertain. But in the most illiterate State in the Union the probability of overcoming a Bourbon majority of 44,434 is confessedly not very prom ising. The three other States which will choose Governors are Ohio, lowa and Maryland. The only change probable in the first is the re-eleetion of Governor Foraker by an increased majority. Iu lowa the re nomination and re-election of Governor Larrabee appear certain, the refusal of the La bor party to form an alliance remov ing all possibility of Democratic suc cess ; while in Maryland the reform movement, although proceeding steadily, is not strong enough as yet to defeat Senator Gormon's machine. On account of the biennial session system wnich prevails in a great ma jority of the States, 1887 will be nearly barren of legislative elections. But Massachusetts, New York, New Jersey, Ohio, lowa, Kentucky and Virginia will choose new Legislatures either wholly or in part. Governor Hill's desire in New York to have a Democratic State Senate to confirm his nominations to office will add zest to the legislative contests in that State. But the chief interest will be shown in those States where the in coming Legislatures will elect United States Senators. This occurs in only three States, lowa, Kentucky and Virginia. The Republicans are reas onably sure of controlling the Sena torial succession in lowa, as the Democrats are iu Kentucky, but the situation is not so clear in Virginia. The imbecility shown by the Demo crats in managing the State debt question and their defeat by 20,000 majority last Fall have certainly dark ened their prospects, but whether the Republicans are in a position to take advantage of the situation has yet to be shown. New York and Pennsylvania will also elect minor State officers, which will compel the calling of State Con ventions and the waging ot State canvasses. If the submission of pro hibitory constitutional amendments to a vote of the people in Texas in August, in Tennessee in September, and iu Oregon in November, be added, a general survey of political contests of 18S7 will be had.— Philadelphia Press. Krupp, The Gun-Maker. BERLIN, July 15. Friederich Krupp, the well-known German metal founder and gigantic steel gun manu facturer, died to day in his villa near Essen, Rhenish Prussia. The enor mous manufactory at Essen was es tablished by his father iu 1827. At first the elder Krupp had only two workmen and the works were con ducted on the most limited scale, but under the supervision of the son, who was born at Essen in 1812, they gradually attained their present colos sal proportions. Friederich Krupp was the discoverer of the method of casting steel in very large masses. He sent to the London Exhibition of 1851 a block weighing fifty German quiutals, which was regarded as a marvel, but he has since cast a block weighing more than four thousand quintals. Ilerr Krupp manufactured a large number of articles used for peaceful purposes, but his name is more particularly associated with the gigantic steel siege guns which the Germans used with such terrible effect against the city of Paris. The steel works at Essen are the largest in the wcrld. They cover nearly five hundred acres and employ seven thousand men. Two huudred and forty steam engines, with a power of 8,500 horses, are continually running. There are fifty steam ham mers and two hundred and forty fur nace?, which consume eighty thous and tons of coal a year. Krupp was at oue time offered letters of nobility by the King of Prussia, but declined the honor. The Ohio Democracy. The Ohio Democrats appear in a new role. At the convention just held they, adopted a resolution de claring that "a proper regulation of the liquor traffic is necessary, and that they believe it to be the duty of all good citizens to aid iu reducing to a minimum the evil 3 resulting therefrom, aud to this end favor the submission of an amendment to the Constitution prohibiting the license of such traffic." This is substantially the same declaration, word for word, made by the Republicans of Penn sylvania last year, and is in direct opposition to the he retofore policy of Democracy on the whole subject of what they choose to call sumptuary laws. But this change of front by Ohio Democrats is not uuusual. In fact, change of front to suit the cir cumstances is a sign of the true Democrat. In its struggle for power during the past ten or twenty years the party has been ou all aides ol every political question that has vexeif the public or puzzled politicians, but now that it is found endorsing temperance and falling into the rear of the procession of moral reform, some of the old Bourbons will have no little difficulty in keeping step to the music.— Ex.

Politically speaking the Aborigines know a thing or two about the ways that are dark and tricks that are vain. A red hot political campaign among the Cherokees is now in progress. I The election for President or Govern- j or of that people takes place in the j present year, and the campaign meth- ; ods are strikenly similar to those ; which prevail elsewhere on like oc- ! casions. For the past four years Mr. 1 Bushyhead has held the position of j chief of the Cherokees—not,however, with the full consent or to the entire satisfaction even of his own party, i whice is the Bourbon or aristocratic party of the Nation. A certain Mr. llabbitt Bunch, a "magnetic" politi cian has accused Gov. Bushyhead of ruling by "ring" methods aud other high crimes and misdemeanors. Mr. Ilabbit Bunch has preseuted himself for the nomination of the Bourbon party as a "reform" candidate and a champion of political purity. He has succeeded in impressing tie party with the loftiness of his motives and in obtaining the nomination, though it is asserted that a liberal distribu tion of wampum and promises helped him very materially. During the canvass personal encounters are fre quent and sometimes fatal, and bar becues and free drinks are the order of the day. Gov. Bushyhead seems to be a man of considerable magnanimity. Al though defeated for the nomination he refuses to quit the party and has given his adhesion to the decision of the convention. He is now support ing Mr. Rabbit Bunch against the Half-Breed or Radical party, which is headed by J. B. Mayes, a lawyer and astute politician. The negro vote looms darkly in the background as an uncertain quantity, and is being canvassed with much as siduity by both sides, and the air of the Indian Territory, is thick with campaign lies and canards. If the Cherokees have anything to learn in the matter of politics wo should be glad to hear it mentioned.— Ex. The Temperature Causes Eggs to Hatch. INDIANOPOLIS, July 21, —A novel sight was witnessed here Tuesday as the result of the high temperature of past three weeks. Some time ago a firm received a consignment of eggs packed in boxes after the usual man ner. The eggs were placed in stor age, and yesterday morning the con signee had occasion to open the cases. Wheu the lid was removed the low call of chicks sounded in his ears. One entire layer of eggs wete found to be hatching out, aud in a few min utes after the eggs were brought to light fifteen well-developed "orphans" picked their way through the shells. Another layer of eggs began to hatch out about noon and it now looks as though the entire consignment will hatch. The above would seem to confirm a similar case of the kind happening on the farm of Mr. English, of this county, as reported in the CITIZEN last week. How They Run. The Toledo Blade has been making a circular letter canvass as to Presi dential preferences in the State of Ohio. It received 21,300 individual responses to its inquiries, and the showing is as follows: For Blaine, 11,010; Sherman, 0,634; Lincoln, 2,- 237; Allison, 384; Edmunds, 95; with tha balance scattered amongst a half dozan others. —A picnic party went to McCon nell's Mills, on Slipperyrock Creek, Friday of last week in Al. Garvin's band wagon. Among those compos ing the picnic party was ex-Sheriff Wm. F. Douds, of this city. When they arrived at the creek the horses were turned loe to graze. One of the animals got into an excavation at the mouth of an abandoned oil well, and fearing that it might be injured, Sheriff Douds ran to some of the party and told them the condition of the animal. It is evident that the Sheriff over-jeated himself by the ex ertion, for when he attempted, with others, to haul the hor3e out, he was completely overcome and fell uncon scious. Fortunately Dr. Wilson, of Portersville, was near at hand, as also was a quantity of ice. The Dr. administered restoratives aud suc ceeded in restoring Sheriff Douds to consciousness. Soon afterwards, however, he suffered a relapse. He was again restored and brought to bis home in this city. He had recov ered sulli :iently by Sunday eveniug to be out of the house again. Gar viu's horse, for which S2OO was re fused last week, struggled in the pit in which it had falleu until it disem bowelled itself on a snag, aud it be came necessary to shoot it where it lay.—New Castle Guardian. —The Yellowstone National Park is a region full of natural wonders, of which explorers and travelers have told the world something; yet nothing short of a personal visit can serve to aid the mind in a comprehension of its marvels. Before the majesty and beauty of the Great Canon of Yel lowstone, flecked with all the colors of a gorgeous sunset, the mysterious loveliness of the springs, which have carved for themselves fonts of the most exquisite form and finish, and above all before the gigantic geysers, huge fountains of hot water which cast their steaming columns hundreds of feet into the air, language is feeble.

It is hard to see why he is so iutent upon having an endorsement of his Presi dential aspirations by the State Con vention of Ohio now, when such ac tion will not have the slightest bind ing effect ipon the delegates to be chosen next year. It will but afford in the interim a better chance for his enemies to concentrate the fire wholly upon him ; and give to those now nominally for him more time in which to discard the old love and on with the new.— Beaver Times.
