THE SUREST ROAD TO WEALTH IS THROUGH LIBERAL ADVERTISING!
The News has found out "who
signed the petition." If the paper had
the enterprising characteristics it lays
claim to it could have published the
list last Sunday.

day in every year, but have the peo

The News is trying to weaken the
ledlvislon of the wards of town and,
for that purpose, places in the mouths
of some of the signers as excuses for
appending their signatures to the peti
tion. But the News gets In from the
rain by admitting the necessity for
dividing the wards and places tho
"kicking" at the doors of others.
Ex-Senator Delajiater paid a
visit to Harrisburg last weok and met
with a cordial receptlou. From those
who met him it is learned he was
hopeful and expressed himself as
Jundauntedby last fall's defeat. He
'says ho will oe before the people again.
We believe It. We have faith in Dela
raater as a man and feel confident that
in due time he will rise, Phoenix-like,
f.'ora the ashes of his finauclal failure
and put to flight the demagogues who
"jumped upon him with both feet"
when ho was down.

BARDSLEY A PRISONER.
The Arrest of Philadelphia's City Treas
urer May lSrlug Out Exposure.
Philadelphia, May 23. Tho great
climax haB come In tho bank falluro son
sation and tho matter of tho accounts of
John Bardsley, city treasurer, and holder
of almost $1,000,000 of money belonging
to the State.
Bardsley has been arrested, and is now
watched by two detectives In his elegant
residenco at Germantown. Ho is too 111
to bo taken ta court or prison, but it is
expected that ho will be arraigned to
morrow. The warrant was issued by Mayor
Stunrt, when ho learned that the records
of the city treasurer's office are irregular,
that his books aro crooked, and that
there are gross discrepancies in his bank
accounts, and that the experts appointed
by olayor Stuart have already discovered
a condition of affairs which indicates
that the recent revelations aro merely tho
beginning of a series of ttill mora as
"Thero will bo somo big corpses lying
about this city," said one of tho persons
who is interested in an official capacity
in the investigation, "and if John Bards
ley will tell the truth thero will be on ex
odus to South America or some interest
ing additions to the penitentiary popula
tion. Philadelphia will furnish a Bonsa
tion for the whole country."
Mrs. Bardsley, who is almost wild over
the whole affair, has promised Mayor
Stuart that she will uso all her power to
make her husband tell everything ho
knows in relation to the defunct banks,
and the city officials are hoping thai ere
long they will get to tho bottom of what

GLEANINGS MADE BY THE
ANOTHER DEPREDATION BY BOYS.
They Break Into a Fruit Stand,
but Secure Little A Suspicion
that Others are Bohlnd
Last night the fruit stand at the corner
of Market and Centre streets, owned by
Frank Spania, was broken into. Tho
stand has attached to it a email place of
shelter in which tho proprietor sits during
rough woather and in which ho is supposed
to koep somo of his stock aftor business
The door of this place of shelter was
fastened by a flap, staplo and pad-lock.
The burglars last night forced tho staple
and gained admittance to the place, secur
ing a fow bananas and a box of cigars. A
peculiarity of tho robbery is that it is but a
fow nights sinco tho stablo owned by Otto
Carl, on the came block, ;was broken iuto
by forcing tho staplo, and at the time the
boys were caught in tho lattor oct it was
believed they were acting as "feelers"
for older heads. The similarity of
the two burglarios, in tbo same
neighborhood and within a fow niehts of
each other, leads to the suspicion that an at
tempt has been made to build a case in
favor of tho boys already in custody by
committing an act as near alike tho other
ae possiblo to give tho iniproaiion that tho
real parties who broke into Carl's stable
aro still at largo. If such is the case it is
quite natural to believe that the supposed
backers of tho "feelers" robbed tho fruit

Pushing to tho Front.
The Homo Friondly Society, of Balti
more, Md., is rapidly pushing itsolf to the
leadership of Industrial insurance societies.
Its statement for tho year ending January
1st, 1891, is a flattering ono, one which can
bo expected only from a well and con
servatively managed institution. Tho mem
bers enrolled during 1S00 numbered 23,471,
makingi businoss of $1,672,700, and the
incomo for tho year amounted to $111, 050.
60. Tho slok and death claims paid during
the same porind numbered 0,480 and
amounted in cash to $50,501.42. Tho in
surance carried .at tho end of the' year
amounted to $5,021,000 and thoro is not a
disputed claim upon the books of the
society to-day. A compsrison of the re
port of lb00 with that ot lb85 shows a
wondtriul growth of tho sooioty's business.
During tho latter year tho insurance
amounted to $152,090. The income wat

IT'S A SUCCESS.
That is the Way tho "Olironlclo"
Tho Schuylkill Press Association in thi
first your jf its existence has boen a good
thing if for nothing r,!sa than to convince
tho members that somo of their editorial
brethren do not wear horns, and to awaken
among others a respect for the printing
press that was not heretofore entertained.
Tho several gatherings, hold sinco May,
1890, have thrown tho membors of tho pro
fession of Schuylkill county into tho hap
piest relations with each other. Somo rf
them still shout liar in italic but no one
pays any attontion to that, because the
man who. uses that sort of argument is
sized up to his propsr estate very quickly,
and .oonoror later the Schuylkill Pros?
Association will eliminate that sort of
journalism by force of contact.
But whilo tho mombers of the press of
Schuylkill county aro gotting together,
a very large majority are already together
and the others muet get there or havo a
very lonesome time, there are others who
havo learned the lesson tho organization
was intondod to teach. They no longer go
oif to job offices to get their work done,
and then oxpect tho newspapers to puff
them. Every newspaper office in tho
county depends on the job office attached
to it to a certain extont. Printing news
papers is only a means to an end. It is
hard work with but little outcome. In
times gone by people have gone off to job
offices that were unencumbered with news
papers and got their printing done, and
then asked and expected to be puffed by
The Schuylkill Press Association is put
ting an end to that. Tho reports yester
day were very gratifying on that score as
on every other.

Tho Reading Gets the Gettysburg
The Philadelphia and Reading Railroad
Company ha- consummated an arrange
ment with tho proprietors of the Gettys
burg and Harrisburg Railroad by which
tho Reading will assume control of that
road, taking formal possession at once.
Mr. McLeod was elected president of the
Gettysburg and Harrisburg Railroad, and
a board of his choosing was ?lected to take
tho place of the retiring board, who re
signed on Tuesday last.
Mr. W. H. "Woodward, who for many
years years has boen superintendent of the
Gettysburg and Harrisburg Railroad, will
be retained by the Reading, being placd
in chargo not'only of the Gettysburg and
Harrisburg, but cf the Philadelphia, Har
risburg acd Piltsburn Railroad as well,
with his office at Harrisburg.
The Gettysburg and Harrisburg Railroad
is an exceedingly valuable acquisition, fur
nishing as it does the most direct route
from tho East and "West to tho greatest
battle field of tho rebellion. It givts tho
Reading an additional conncctitT: with the
Cumberland Valley Railroad at Carlisle,
and with tho "Western Maryland Railroad
at Gettysburg, the litt ir making way for a
short lino to Baltimore via tho Westorn
