Walter : "What will you havo, sir?" Robinson : "Steak." Walter: "With mushrooms?" Robinson : "No, sir ; none for me." The present attitude of the Journal demonstrates that paper's howl against "mushroom" Republican clubs was" a pure, unadulterated fake. Such papers dislike the "mushrooms" as much as the small boy does caudy. If the Press, Journal aud like papers really wish success for the Re publican party why are they not con sistent? Heretofore they have been charging Robinson with being an organizer aud suckling of the "mush room" clubs but now they condemn him because he has had the manhood to step forward aud eay that ho is Y-opposed to such organizations and jdoes not waut their support. The truth Is that those who have been charging Robinson are the parties who CENTS per yd for thn BEST TABLE OILCLOTH, Bold In other stores for S5o. All floor Oilcloths reduced. Call for bargains C.

Mr. Roiiinson would have shown good taste aud Bound judgment if he had not thrust himself ho prominently forward at the executive committee's meeting and had permitted another to offer the resolution which so stultified ills own previous conduct. Miners' Journal. The definition of the above editorial is that Robinson should have remained silent under the charges and should have allowed the "mushroom" club fakirs to complete their dirty work by presenting a resolution condemning him for that of which he was not guilty. Mr. Robinson would have been very foolish had he not taken the stand he did before the Executive Committee. He unmasked his accusers and proved himself innocent with one blow. When the Journal attempts to show that Robinson had no right to defend himself It shows its ears. The great clinch pending in Louis iana between the lottery and anti-lot tery parties seems to have aroused the Louisiana tiger from his lair. The lot tery is a disgrace to Louisiana, no doubt, but if it cannot be abolished without carrying the open threats of revolution by both parties into ellect we cannot think the principle Involved worth such a sacrifice. It Is a turbulent people anyhow, aud threats are to the masses there as lire'to tow-. Thelottety furnishes an excuse to the masses for gambling, a business fatal to fixity of purpose and therefore destructive to public morals. It is not many years ago that people supposed to be foremost in respectability were firm supporters of the lottery. The protests indulged by northern papers were passionately resented by the moat reputable organs of public opinion there. There has not been time for a formidable public sentiment adverse to lottery gambling to grow up, and as all moraljgrowth is slow it would seem to be the best policy not to carry the war beyond an earnest but peaceable struggle at the polls, Beyond that lies great danger to the stability of thiugsln Louisiana.

THE SUMMA BURGLARY RECALLED Ono of tho Stolen Papers Found and Restored to tho Owner. Wore Mahanoy Oity Parties tho Burglars ? One of tho papers that wera missed after Iho safe belonging to Paul Summa, of South Main street, was blown open by burglars severa' days ago, was found yostorday and restored to tho ownor last night. John li. Trezise, ot town, is employed in theolBce of Superintendent John Skoatb, at Mahanoy City. Yesterday a fireman on a coal train found a paper on tho railroad, near tho Mahanoy Oity P. & It. dopot. Tho paper was turned over to tho engineer if the train, who romrked to Mr. Trezise, "This paper was found on the railroad. It looked likd a bond of some kind, but it isn't." The engineer was about to throw it into tho fire, when Mr. Trezise said, "Hold up I What is It?" "Oh, a paper bolonging to some Hunk." Mr. Trezise took the paper and, upon glancing over it, found that it was Paul Summa's certificate of citizenship. The paper was brought to town, and Mr. Tre zise, accompanied by a Hkrald reporter, cnlled upon Mr. Summa, Tho paper was dolivered and Mr. Summa was told whero it was found. It is believed that Mr. Sum ma will have a search mado in tho locality whero the restored paper was pickod up with tho hopo ot finding more "papers or other stolen property. Politics and Politicians. Major Pinnoy is enthusiastically in favor of Georgo B. McCreary, of Philadelphia, for State Treasurer. Nothing would suit the Shenandoah people botlor than to see Mr. McOreary roceivo some substantial public recognition. When Shenandoah was swept by the conflagration ot Novem ber, 1883, no member of tho Philadelphia relief committee worked harder or more persistently than did Goorge B. McCreary, for the relief of the suflorers. In addition to this, Mr. McCreary is an ex-Schuylkill county "boy" and should he bi nominsted old Schuylkill will give him a rousing vote. Mr. Pomeroy's boom for delegate to tho Constitutional Convention is an unpre cedented one and should he consent to be a candidate there will not be the slightost doubt about his nomination. Thus far tho matter has boon entirely in tho hands of his friends who are legion, and fhould ho ultimately declino to run it will be a great disappointment to them. J. J. Praney is making n warm fight among tho Ddmoetats for a dolegatoship to the Constitutional Convention. Ho is not allowing the grass to grow under his feet and if -he does not "get there", it will not be his fault. Popular Excursion. One of the most popular and cheapest summor excursions is tho nnnual Heller excursion over tho famous and picturesquo Lehigh Valley railroad, to Niagara Falls, which tke3 place this year on Sat urday, July 25th. Tho faro is only 8.60. Tickets are limited to 10 days and good to roturn on any reguular train.
