The New York Press thlukB It a
eouud suggestion that made by Hon.
J.S. Clarkson that thefrlendshlp of Re
publican women should be utilized In
Republican clubs; that "young men
can carry on the discussions or debates;
young women can aid In the entertain
ments with songs or recitals, and the
full enthusiasm and Intelligence of tho
neighborhood can thus bo utilized for
the service of the Republican party
otherwise the cause of good govern
ment." The influence of woman has always
been potent for the Republican party
from Its earliest tlines.and Its doctrines
taught at the mother's knee by true,
earnest sympathetic American woman
hood, carried their impress through
life, In the political struggle and In the
perils of war. The Republican party
to-day Is striving to insure for the
American worklngman, through the
protection of American Industry, re
munerative wages, and that means a
comfortable home. In such an effort
it may well expect the aid and co-operation
of American women.

gation, and the facts have been fur

bare statement of the fact that a town
as near as Shenandoah, one with
which, our people have so much in
common, Is practically as far away as
Philadelphia '.when mall service is
considered, ought to cause our post
ofllce authorities to look Into this mat

takes from 24 to 48 hours to get a re

of 16,000 people less than five miles

FrackvlUe Item
The Soldiers' Home Committee, at
Erie, has issued an order requiring
the Inmates to pay SO per cent, of
their pensions to the general main
tenance fund and unless it is rescinded
the Home will be depopulated as the
veterans are leaving the institution as
fast as their pensions for the last
quarter arrives. The order should be
rescinded, as it is not only distasteful
to the soldiers in and out of the Home,
but to all their friends.

Shouts of Pralso and Storms of
Applause Follow tho Wonder
ful Peats at the Trotting
Park Yesterday.
Likeiide Is now open.
That it is destined to be the summer ro-
sortof the region is an insured fact.
It wat formally opened yesterday by a
fine oxhibltlon by Pawnoe Bill and his
Wild West Show. It was an auspicious
opening, and not ono of the twolve hun
dred people who passed through tho gates
was dissati'fied.
Tho grand stand was well filled and peo
ple stood throo rows deep along ths rail of
tho race course. The day was exceedingly
warm, but the auditors who did not secure
shady places withstood the blazing rays of
the sun and romained in the park until
Pawnee Bill announced that his exhibition
was closed.
The oxhibition was a very pleasing and
interesting one. It opened with the mem
bers of tho combination, headed by Pawnee
Bill and Miss May Lillie, parading down
the track, all on horseback, and forming in
line boforo tho grand stand to be intro
duced. Among them wero Musttnc
Walter, Don Zj Anno, Deadwood Dick,
Broncho Bob, Senoro Francisco, Aklahoma
Frank, Texas Tom and a band of Sioux
Indians, sworthy savage looking and
arrayed in brilliant costumos. Pawnee
Bill and Hiss May .Lillie gave an exhibl
Hon of difficult rifle practice which was
astonishing. Tho Indians gave a ghoet
dance and then thu cowboys drove the
herd of buddies and steers from
pasturo in one corner of tho park and gave
a realistic exhibition of lassoing, bringing
the stoers and butUlos to "a round up" in
thrilling and realistic style. Mustang
Walter thr6w his lasso over tho horns of a
stoor and brought it to such a sudden halt
as to almost throw it upon its back. The
steer was soon bound and a vaquero was
upon its back a few minutes later, holding
on for dear life, as tho steer jumped and
"bucked" in its unsuccessful efforts to
throw him off. An Indian race for a hand
kerchief was exciting. The pony express
carrying important dispatches was inter
esting. The rider started from the grand
stand at lightning speed and made four
rapid changes of ponies while making a
circuit of the track. The Deadwood stage
ooach robbery was the next on the pro
gramme. The coach left the grand stand
drawn by six mules. At the top of the
home stretch it was attacked by a band of
Indians. Shots were exchanged at a rapid
rate and as the battle was being waged fast
and furious a band of cowboys from a dis
tance hastoned to the rescue and drove the
Indians from the coach amid tho flashes of
rifles and revolvers.
Mustang Walter and Don 7.6 Anno then
gave an exhibition of picking handker
chiefs from the track from the back of a
running borse, after which they pinked up
fifty and ten-cont pieces in a like manner.
The race between a cowboy, Indian and
Mexican was thrilling.
But the featuro of the exhibition was
Miss May Lillio's shooting clay pigeons
thrown in the air while on the back of a
fast running borse.
An exhibition of dismounting and re
mounting while the horses were running at
full speed was admirably given by Mustang
Walter and Don Zo Anuo.
The buffalo bunt by the Indians wa a
realistic exhibition and the fancy and trick
lassoing by Mustang Walter and Don Ze
Anno was heartily applauded, It is worth
the price of admission to tee those two men
handle their lassos.
Tbe horse thief act, showing the mode of
Judge Lynch in the Par We.t, wo excit
ing in the extreme. The sheriff and his
two deputies were sent eastward along the
track to hunt the horse thief. The next
moment there was a great commotion at
tho eastern ond of tho track. The horse
thief was seen approaching urging his
horse to all possible spoed to get away from
tho pursuing cowboys. When near the
grand stand tho thief dismounted and ran
past tho stand on foot his horse, having
given out. The cowboys continued the
pursuit and ono ol them finally succeeded
In lassoing tho thief, who was pulled down
to the ground. The cowboy fastened the
end of the laso to his saddlo and galloped
off towards a tree In the centre of the
park, dragging tho thief after him along
the ground. Tho thief crlod for mercy,
but for reply ho was strung up to a limb of
the treo. Then the sheriff and his deputies
appeared upon the scene, drove off the
lynchers after an exchange of several shots
and returned to tho grand stand with the
supposed dol body of the thief.
The reproduction of the atrocious Moun
tain Meadow ma'sacre was equally sensa
tional ond realistic.
After the riding of wild bucking
bronchos and nnothor oxhibition of sharp
shooting tho exhibition closed with a real
istic scne of an attack on Trapper Tom's
As n wholo the exhibition was a highly
gratifying one. The show Is historical and
one which no man, woman or cnild should
fail to see.
Herewith is an illustration of Miss Mary
Lillie, of Pawneo Bill's "Wild West Show,
In her feat of rapidly breaking glass balls
in rapid succession while speeding past on
the back of a fiery broncho. Miss Lillie
is the champion girl'shot of tho world at
horseback shooting and Pawneo Bill has a

back the title
Miss May Lillie was born on tho Dela
ware, at Philadelphia, Pa., not a stono's
throw from the romnntic spot whero Will
iam Penn signed his famous treaty with
the Indians.
The first evidence of hor wonderful skill
with the rifle was evidenced at Hnrnmon-
ton, N. J., where hor brother is engaged in
fruit farming, who keeps dogs, guns, etc,
for bis own amusement. A party of young
folks accompanying her, sho went to spend
a fortnight with her brother, as was her
custom every year. Among the party was
Miss May Wanamaker, who, through her
brothers, had cultivated a tasto for the rifle,
and had brought several with her. At the
first shooting match Miss Lillie carried off
the honors by mising tbe object not a sin
glo time. This was her first attempt with
the rifle, and she has ever since continued
to improve, so that today she stands at the
head, sublime and alone, in her particular
style of fancy rifle shooting. In appear
ance the is highly prepossessing, nnd of one
of the first families of Philadelphia.
Her great skill with a rifle was at'
tested when the juade a hunt with the
Pawnee and Comanche Indians in the In
dian Territory, in the summer of 18S8
killing S prairie chlckent and ID wild
turkeys in the afternoon from 3 o'clock
to 7.
Cornan, the Chief, was so well pleated
with her wonderful skill that ho presented
her with a little colt, which she named
"Hunter" and which the now rides, and I
her favorite horse; she trained him herself,
and was the first person to ever mount hlin
ijhe has in many Instances rode him in
competing for prizes.and thus far has never
been defeated, and Is, without doubt or
denial, tbe most graceful lady rider in the
United States.
On November 12, 1889, when she gave
her exhibition at the Penna. State Klile
Bange, shooting 200 yards, the made the
marvelout score of 21 pointt out of apos
tlble 25, tbe best score ever made by a lady
at this range of shooting, A handsome
solid gold medal was presented her for this
by her Philadelphia friends, of which the
is justly proud. On October 31st, 18S9, the
won the Piedmont Medal at Atlanta, Oa.,
against 5 competitors, and tbe highest com
plimentt from such distinguished and
honorable gentlemen as Gov. J. B. Gordon

Washington, June 10. Sir Julian
Pnuncefote, accompaniod by Mb first sec
retary, called n,t tho State Department
enrly in tho morning to put tho finishing
touches to the agreement between the
United States and Groat Britain looking
to the protection of tho deal fisheries In
Beb ring Sea.
After n preliminary conversation be
tween Sir Julian and Acting Secretary of
Stato Wharton, an official document,
with the decorations of important State
papers, was producod and carefully
perused by the British Minister.
It was apparently satisfactorily drawn,
for ho afterward placed his official signa
ture to It, and Acting Secretary Whnrton,
as leprescntatlve of the United States,
did likewise.
Later tho President Issued a proclama
tion, stuting that an agreement, a modus
Vivendi between the government of the
United States and tho govemtnont of
her Brltanlo Majesty in relation to thu
lur seal Ushorles In ISohrlng sea was con-
lluded on tho loth day of Juno, in the
Tear of our Lord ono thousand eight hun

.voiding Irritating UlUoronces, anil with
vlow to promote tho friendly settle
ment of tho questions ponding between
the two governments touching their re
spective rights, and for tho preservation
of tho seal species.
. The agreement authorizes tho United
States vessels to seizo otlondlng British
vessols, which, however, are to be turned
over to the British authorities for trial.
This featuro Is expected to prove of great
value In tho pressing emergency that Is
held to exist ot clearing out tbe law-
breaking vessels before irrepnrnblo dam
age Is dono to tho seal llsherles.
The President also addressed communi
cations to tho Secretaries of the Navy
and treasury departments advising
them concerning the modus vlvondl,

all float well above their lines, and it Is
well knowu that the Mineola took on
