SHEKAmOAH, PA.. THURSDAY, JULY 23. 1891. ONJE CENT. f THE STTBEST BO AD TO WEALTH IS THBOUGI-I LIBEBAL ADVERTISING- CONVENTION CALL. To the Republican Electors of Pennsylvania: After consultation anil correspondence with the members of the Republican State Committee, and by their direction, I hereby give notice that the Republican of Pennsylvania, by their duly chosen representatives, villi meet in Stale Con '' vention at Ilarritburg, Wednesday, August 19, 1891, at 10 o'clock A. M., for the purpose of plac ing in nomination candidates for the offices of Slate Treasurer and Auditor General, for the nomination of eighteen candidates for Delegates-al-Large to the Constitutional Convention pro vided for in the Act of Assembly approval June 10, 1891, and for the transaction of such other b uslncss as may be presented, Noliceis especially directed tolhefact thai, in word'ince with the provisions of the last men tioned act, each Senatorial district is entitled to a repreientatlon of three delegates in said Con stitutional Convention, two of whom only canbe tnembrrs of the majority party in said district. The electors of each district are therefore re quested to make proper nomlntUions for dele gates to satd convention, the rules governing the nomination of candidates for Sxite Senator to be applicable. In this connection the Cialrman desires to call the attention of Republican voters to the recom mendation of the State Convention of 1832, that " they allow the greatest freedom in the general participation in the primaries consistent with the preservation of the party organisation." UMf. II. ANDREWS, Chairman. THE "POST" AND PENSIONS. - 7 Tho Evening Post complains bitter tly because the pension roll If) lucreas ing at ft rate which will carry the number of names on It "up to about 000,000, or more than four times the tiital as far back ns 1878," and asks where Is thlB thing to stop?" It ought not to stop until every old sol dier who is entitled to a pension gels It. Does the Post dispute that propo sition ? Does it advise the Democratic party, of which it Is an ally, to stop it short of that point? Does it advo cate the repeal of the, present pension Jaws? Does it advice tho next House of Representatives, which is Demo cratic, to refuso appropriations for the payment of pensions? This ia a fea ture of Democratic policy, in which about 1,400,000 old soldiers in the Nor thern states are deeply interested, and as to which they want a definite avowal of the Democratic-Mugwump Intentions. Perhaps the Post will lye It to them and then, again, per- aps it will not. JV. Y, Press, Tho exhibition in Ferguson's theatre building is for ladies and gentlemen. Seo Thauma.

Tho man who remarked tho otbor day that "Lakeside is tho Atlantic City of Schuylkill county" novor gavouttorancot? moro truthful words. Lskesido is an inland suramor resort with all tho advan tunes for sea coast attraction and when tho improvement company that has it in band flnho3 its work Lakosido will ho a resort without an equal in tho ttato.

Whon tho rosorU on tho coast nra storm-beaten and all tho torrrs of thoir exposed position havo full swing, Lakosido will be affording amusement tu the inlanders. Tho lakes will attract the skators and tho hnraenso pavilion will shelter tho merry dancers. THE QUAND MARCH. Likcside stands to-day tho peer of many ot tho most famous resorts of the country Thoro is no placo on tho continent that possesses more natural advantages and by n judicious oxpendituro of mouoy tho artificial advantages can be so added as to mako tho placo second to no resort in any of tho states. Thero is a mint of money in Lakebido for tho company that has tbo placo in hand. Tho Pottsvillo Republican describes tho place as follows : "Lakeside, with its beau5 tiful surroundings, is tho haven of rest in tbo midst of a wido and stretching grovo entirely separated from tho busy world without. Notwithstanding its roughness of surfaco and goneral storillty, the anthra cite coal region posaosses many advantages as a place for rosldenco and pleasure. Its elevation above the sea levol secures pure air and a healthy climate, while tho mag' niflcent scenery with which it abounds is unsurpassed by anything in tho country, Much labor las been oxpondod to add tn tho attractions with which naturo has been so lavish at Lakosldo Park. Hero and there through the woods are nlcoly cloarod walks loading into shady labyrinths, delightful in their retirement. Tho grounds occupy 200 acres, twouty-slx of which aro covered by two lakes that produce tho finest spring water loo in Pennsylvania; during tho win ter.and.stnckod with bass and salmon.afford excellont flhlng and boating to oxcursion Ult during the summer season " Tho improvement company says that by tbo opening of the summer season of 1892 it Will havo a largo hotol on tho grounds, will havo bathing houses bordering tbo lakes and tho beautiful knoll that slopes so gracefully to tho beautiful body of water will be studded with handsome cottages of exquisite design. Some farmers who llvo in tho vicinity of Lskesido and who look upon tho advent of tho improvement cmpany as tho red moo viewed tlonrrival of Columbus, savs ''It's all daru noneenso. What's tho use'n doin' all them things. We kin al'us git Sunday skeulelbr, efimo,1jei;9' jwd rjvkat'n uso'n going ttj All Ml ttfujfnsa," ,, , ' !

They bo lievo with the company, that LakosidS can bo made in timo a resort that will attract hoaltli and pleasuro seekers, fiom all parU of this and adjoining" slates. Thoy are also wise enough to see that overy dollar spent in improvements at Lkosido onbances the values of tho adjoining ostatos. Fortunately there are no hayeowlors in tho East Mahanoy Junction Land and Im provement Company. This is ovidoncod by the rnco track which has supplantod a field which somo Aid residonts said was ouly fit for a pumpkin bod, It is also evi denced by tho raagnificont dancing pavil ion that now stands bosido tho old way back hotel, a pavilion that ranks with tho most substantial, commodious and beauti ful structures of the kind in tbo state. TUB POLKA. Tho popularity of Lakeside as a resort in tho day time has been established. On Tuesday last six thousand pooplo from ail parts of Kastorn Pennsylvania were thero and thero was not one who did not speak of the placet with enthusiasm. A few days ago it was decided to test Lakeside as a resort for moonlight parties. Jlertre. Ilenry Wlederhold, O. A. Keiru, George II. Krink, John A. Grant, Goorgo Patterson, h. 0.

The first thing tbo visitors turnei their attention to was tho immense dancing pavilion. Tho structure, in tho language of somo of the ladies, was "nerfeollv grand." Then tbolr attention was turned to the lakes. Stand upon any of tho knolls surround ing the lakes at Lakesido on a moonlight night and watch tho reflection of tho moonbeams upon tho crystal surfaco as tho tiny crafte with the marry voyagers ply to and frj. Just try it some time. Tbo artist's brush has never pictured naturo as hodisnlavs herself at Lkiirln DM n miv-m. "iht night. THE QUADIUIXH. Half an hour on the water was followed by aslrolUUrough the gioyo opposito the ttotltng park. Then tho preparatory5 strains of the lamous Schoppa orcli9stia shualled the dancors to tho pvilion aud a few minuto3 later tho couples were march ing over tho spacious floor. Tho intorior of the dancing pavilion pro sents a splendid appearance whon ilium! natod. The plan upon which tho building was constructed is not unlike thoso of thn long, Queen Ann6tyleof hotels, along Ihe Atlantio coast. On tbe sido of tho build Ing fauing the railroad is an outsldo cov oiod piazza twelvo feet wide and extending tho entire length of tbo building. From this piazza a full view of Iho dancing flour may bo secured by means of largo win dows, with which the building is plant! ful y supplied. At ono end of tbo build ing. Inside, aro two broad stair-cases that load to a wido balcony extending tho length of the building, on each sido. At the opposito ond is a stago for tho orchestra. A largo Chickering piano rests upon the stage, which, by tho way, is large enough for concert purposes. At this end of the building thero is au annex, which is being titled up as an ice croam parlor and restaur ant This parlor is largo enough to accom modate nearly throe hundred pooplo at ono timo. The hnp was a splendid tuccess and it will no doubt bo followod by a number of liko ovents before the season closes. Thus the popularity of Lakeside as a moonlight resort is ostabllsbod. As ouo is homeward boupd on the train he overhear" the oozing ot onthusiasm : "Why, I had no Idea that there was such a plaoe in tho ooal regloni." "What a delightful placo it is. I am sure I would like to llvo there." "I oannot seo .why pooplo want to travel hundred of miles for a health resort when thero Is ono at their door. I am delighted with it." "Shenandoah," yells tho conductor. As I stroll homeward I bear the chordB of "Moonlight mi tho Lake." There it plenty ot it at Lakoiide. It. Saqo. Thauma, the mystifying.

Palmer, of this town, has been suggested as a suitable person for tho nomination for Sheriff on the ltepubtlcan ticket. While the Hkkald believes thoro aro many other available men for tho posi tion in the party, it must be admitted that Mr. Palmer would mike a formidable Ottiididate and oould be elected. Uo is well known throughout the county as a hard-working and onsclenlious miner and, no doubt, he would be accoptablo to U pirties. Although the IIkkalo is 4ltclind to other matorial at present, it wouW.'not. WUbhBld it) Kippert' from Mr. Palmer.

Joo Well, of Pottsvillo, who is seoking , tho Democratic nomination for Sheriff, was it Lnkosido on Tuesday and circulated as Ane of tho most jovial Germans on tho grounds. "Joe" made a favorable im pression, as usual. Thoro ia no longor any question as to who tho Democrats will nominato for Judge this fall. Tho nomination of John A. Nash, Esq., of Poltsville, is oonooded. Among tbo.latest candidates nnnouncod for delegates to the Constitutional Conven tion is that of John ,1. Coyle, of Mahanoy City. Uo is popular and no doubt would add strength to the Republican ticket, be ldes being deserving f tho honor at tho hands of his fellow workers. Tmnarma's young and popular attorney, J. O.
