If we vote in favor of becoming a city of the third class we may have some trouble in finding "male angels willing to serve as Select and Common conncilmen. Listen to this from the Act of 1889, regarding councilmen of cities of the third class— A member of councils who shall so licit. demand or receive, or consent, to receive, directlv or indirectly, for him self. or for another, from any company, corporation or person, any money, office, appointment, employment, testi monial, reward, thing of value or en joyment, or of personal advantage, or promise thereof, for his vote or official influence, or for withholding the same, or with an understanding, expressed or implied, that his vote or official action shall be in any way influenced thereby, or who shall solicit or demand any such money, or other advantage, matter or thing aforesaid for another, as the con sideration of his vote or official influence or for withholding the same, or shall give or withhold his vote or influence, in consideration of the payment or promise of such money, advantage, mat- ] ter or thing to another, shall be held guilty of bribery, and upon conviction thereof, shall be punished by a fine not exceeding ten thousand dollars, and by separate and solitary confinement at labor for a period not exceeding five yean, and shall be forever incapable of holding any place of profit or trust in this commonwealth. Other sections provide penalties for having a personal interest in pending bills, for using public property for pri vate purposes, for becoming surety for contractors, agents or other officers and for pnrchasing warrants or claims at a discount. There are lots of "female angels" in Bntler, if not in the Bible, bnt ' 'male angels" are scarce, and the absorption of twenty of the latter by Councils wonld probably create a "corner" in in them. THE blowing up of the "Mikasa" the Jap. flagship is now said to have been doe to a mutiny. SECRETARY BONAPARTE of the Navy Department in his speech at Annapolis to the Bankers Association used this significant language: "The kicker is the only means by which an American party la sept in order. Unless the men who control the policies of parties know tbat if they insnlt the intelligence and 'Sense of honesty of the masses of the people too much the kicker will rise up and cast them out of power, they will treat resolutions and remonstrances merely as "big words which break no bones.' Nor is the kicker necessarily outside of a party. The best devotion to party is shown bv the man who will refuse to follow it away from the beaten path of right. In the last campaign I was frequently asked if I were a Repub lican or an Independent, and I had no besitency in answering that I was both." WASHINGTON JfOTES. The influx of Senators and Represent atives at Washington, las week, result ed in the unfolding of a variety of opinions on subjects that will come be fore congress at the coming session. The entire country was represented at the White house by callers, and as a rule tbey were willing to go on record on the leading topics of the day. So far as railway rate legislation is concerned, the callers seemed to be a unit in the prediction that the House would rally to the support of the President and pass a measure that would meet with his ap proval. But this was as far as they woaldgo with their favorable predic tions. On the other hand, the majority of the statesmen believed that the House* measure would be sidetracked in the Senate, and a substitute for it returned to the house, and that the substitute wonld be not at all pleasing to the President. Many of the callers were of the opinion that a deadlock would ensue between the two houses and that the first session wonld adjourn with the matter high up in the air. But there were a few hopeful ones who argued tbat the deadlock between the two Houses would be amicably settled in a conference committee and tbat the re mit would be a compromise measure tbat wonld be satisfactory as the initial step in such legislation. While it might be only a half loaf they believed it wonld be accepted by the President as being better than no bread. CIIUBCH NOTES. The next M. E. Conference will be beld in Butler. Rev.

The 20th Annual Convention of the Woman's Home and Foreign Missiona ry Society of the Pittsburg Synod met in Grace Lutheran church, Tuesday afternoon, Mrs, J. C. Nicholas made an excellent address of welcome; greetings were received from the other Ladies' 'Societies of the town. In the evening the President's address was "V-livered, some interesting pajiers were read, fol lowed by ;i reception and acquaintance meeting in the Sunday School room at which ice cream, cake and coffee were served. * Tbufe are over a hundred delegates present and the ladies of the congrega tion are serving the noon lunclj to the delegates in the Sunday School room, and the choir rendered some excellent music Yesterday's session was devoted to the reports of the officers and depart menta; business meeting, efc.

This morning's session will be devot ed to reports of Committees, election of officers, etc.. and the convention will adjourn at noon. The church is handsomely decorated with palms and cnt flowers. POLITICAL. Coanty Chairman yuigley and the county candidates started out, Monday, t J tour the cunnty, each candidate, this yeir. at the suggestion of ex-Prothono tary McCollotigb, going in his own buggy. A late dispatch from Harrisbnrg says that the Republican State Committee has literally abandoned the State cam paign. and is devoting all its attention and cash to a desperate effort to save the remnant of the Philadelphia ma chine. The political fate of United States Senator Boies Penrose is at stake. Shonld the City party ticket win in Philadelphia and the Indej>endents cap tare the important offices of the Sheriff and the Connty Commissioners, it will be all up with the "Gang." Durham came into power in 1896 bv capturing the Sheriff e office only. With the ''Organization" down and out in Philadelphia, Penrose will be done for in the State. A United States Sen ator is in position to demand some measure of political recognition through sheer force of position, but a Senator who lacks the support of his own city for re-election is not likely to be per mitted to make "slates" for the party conventions and dictate the course of legislation. The political life of Senator Penrose, therefore, mdy be said to be hanging in the balance at the coming November election in Philadelphia. And the poli tical life of Senator Penrose is of vastly more importance to State Chairman Andrews than the State Treasury and all the other offices on Capitol Hill. The lack of an expensive ''spellbind ing" tour for Candidate Plummer and the failure of numerous county leaders to "get a rise" out of the State commit tee in the matter of cash aid for local campaign is explained Every available dollar is being dump ed into Philadelphia. The leaders are insisting that Plummer is entirely safe, but they are dreadfully anxious about the outcome in the city of Penrose. And their fear is justified by conditions With election day only a month off "Capitol Hill," after a careful scrutinv of the situation and dge consideration oLthe public and private statements of both sides, is convinced to a man that the "Organization" is beaten in Phila delphia-' There are 339,000 voters in Phila delphia and after the sale of 75,000 tax receipts last Saturday, it was estimated that ninety per cent.of them had quali fied to vote at the coming election. Senator Foraker of Ohio, who had agreed to speak in Philadelphia, on national issues, next week, has sent the following note to Chairman Andrews *1 am satisfied from reports I am re ceiving from Philadelphia, that if I go there to speak at this time it will be in terpreted as having direct reference to your local troubles and differences, with which I cannot with" propriety have anything to do, instead of national policies, about which and in behalf of yonr State ticket alone I was invited to speak. While I think this is unreason able and while I dislike exceedingly to recall nn appointment that has been an nounced, yet I am unwilling to be pot in such attitude and therefore cancel my engagement for the 18th." Senator Foraker of Ohio is recognized as the leader of the opposition to the President's railroad policy. He is stumping Ohio at present, and Secre tary Taft intends setting down upon him. Say! Can you make beads or tails out of Pittsburg politics? There's the Citizen's party, the Lincoln, the Or phans. the Republicans and the Demo crats; the Flinn-Leslie crowd, the Paul- Davis combination, the Stevenson & Co. association, etc , etc., and a diagram is needed for outsiders. President Roosevelt is understood to have made it clear that he does not de sire any of his cabinet to speak sylvania in this campaign Penrose and Dorbam have been making special efforts to get Republicans of National reputation from other States to speak in Philadelphia, but have met with failure. Secretary of the Treasury Shaw was ap proached, but after bearing from Secre tary of State Root as to the situation in Philadelphia and Pennsylvania, de clined to come to the aid of the gang Following on this the President is said to have taken a decided stand against the giving of any assistance to the band of "corruptionists who have been mas querading as Republicans." It is re ported that he was partially moved to assume this attitude by the statement that Senator Foraker bad agreed to speak in Philadelphia. The Ohio sen ator has assumed the role of lead*" of the forces opposed to Roosevelt's policy of railroad rate regulation. Naturally be would find congenial company with the machine leaders of Pennsylvania who caused the reconsideration and tabling of the resolution indorsing that policy which had passed the House of Representatives. But even Senator Foraker is said to have stipulated tbat his speech should be confined to Nation al questions only and he has since de clined to speak there at all. Railroad legislation u to be the keynote of the President's forthcoming message to Congress. IN the war for the control of the Wa bash, the Gould people triumphed over Ramsey, at Toledo, Tuesday. The number bf yellow fever esses in New Orleans and vicinity ran past the 3000 mark, some days ago. Ten thousand people living on au island at th 6 mouth of the great Chinese river—the Yangtse—were lately killed by a typhoon. New Station ut Uutler. l'lans are being drawn up by the Bal timore and Ohio for a new passenger station at Butler, work on which is ex pected to be started next spring, says the Leader The present station has long since outgrown its usefulness and is entirely inadequate to the needs of the road in that city. The new depot will be a handsome brick structure, with spacious waiting rooms and all the modern conveniences of a railway ter minal It will also have a freight house attached. Ry reason of the fact that the business of the Buffalo, Ro chester and Pittsburg is handled at the same depot larger quarters are absolute ly necessary. The building will cost about $25,000. ACCIDENTS. The Coroner's jury in the case of young Emanuel Shaffer, who was acci dently killed on Wednesday of last week by a shot from the gun of Frank Edwards returned a verdict of acciden tal shooting. At the hearing young Edwards stated that he was 15 years old; that he and Emanuel were walking side by side, he heing on the right side of his compan ion. both were carrying their guns | cocked, the muzzles resting in the crooks of their arms. That in some way that he could not understand his gun went off and Shaffer, giving a loud cry, fell to the ground. As soon as Shaffer fell I ran up to a house we had just passed and asked a man Isaw there to come down quick tbat Shaffer was shot. The man came with me and we carried Shaffer to the house. Then I started for Butler and went to Shaffer's house and told his father: we got a bug gy and went out to the house anil found that he was dead Then I came to Butler with Mr. Shaffer and went to the coroner's office and gave myself up. He was greatly agitated over the sail fate of his companion. His gun was a 22-calibre Marlin rifle ! John Bayer worked at the Purvis mill, without accident, for 1« years, but he hail a thumb cut off last Friday Miles Hutchison's team met with an accident along the pipe line near Anau dale, last week. He was hauling pipe at the time, and it slid forward anil so injured one of his horses that it bad to shot. George Stroebel. a demented teamster who lived by himself on lustitnte Hill, shot himself through the head, Tuesday morning, and was dead when found.

The well was doing about sixty larrels, but it had to be shut down until the necessary tankage could be provided. A sample of the oil tested by a Pittsburg firm showed the unusual gravity of 33 degrees, and it is said to be worth $3 per barrel. Tommy is well known in the Butler county fields as a "wildcatter, and as this is by far the best strike he has ever made he is being congratulated on all sides. —Reporter. A Surprise Party.
