To the Republican Electors of Pennsylvania: After contultatlon anil correspondence svllh the member of the Republican State Committee, and by their direction, I hereby give notice that the Republicans of Pennsylvania, by their duty chosen representatives, sMl meet in .State Con vention at Ilarrlsburg, Wednesday, August 19, 1891, a 10 o'clock A. it., for the purpose ofptac ing in nomination candidates for the offices of State Treasurer and Auditor Oenerat, for the nomination of eighteen candidates for Delegates-at-Largs to the Cbmtltuttonal Convention pro vided for in the Act of Assembly approved June 19, 1891, ii(J for the transaction of such other business as may be presented, A'otice is especially directed to the fact that, in accordance with the provisions of the latt men tioned act, each Senatorial district is entitled to a representation of three delegate in said Con stitutional Convention, two of whom only canbe Members Of the majority party in said district The electors of each district are therefore re quested to make proper nomination for dele gates to said convention, the rules governing the iionmtaion of candidates for Slate Senator to be applicable. In this connection the Chairman desires to call the attention of Republican voters to the rtconi' snendatlon of the Stale Convention of 18S2, that "they allow the greatest freedom in tlte general participation in the primaries consistent with the preservation of the jtarty organisation, ir.lf. It. ANV11EWS, Chairman. OliABKSON ON QUAY. Iu an interview with Hon. James S. Clnrkson, recently assistant postmaster general, that Benutor Quay's resolve to resign the chairmanship of the Repub lican national committee is not a now fangled Idea, but one long entertained and only prevented by urgent requests of members of the national organiza tion. While the-senator -cannot bo blamed for wish lug to surrender the trust wo again repeat it is not for the interest of the party that ho should retire all the criticisms of the Mug wumps to the contrary notwithstand ing. The warfare on the senator has been waged by Democratic journals for the express purpose a securing his retirement and for the reason that they are mortally afraid of his energy and generalship. Iu fact, It Is the boast of the Now York World that the opposi tion to Senator Quay originated In its columns and of course the inspiring cause was Quay's ability as a leader. Democratic opposition could bo expect ed, but when so-called Republicans Jolu in the attack it looks very much like a rule or ruin polioy a policy on the George William Curtis order which 0333STTS per yd for tbo BEST TABLE OILCLOTH, Sold iu other stores for 3So.

Well, the groat leader who won the light against such heavy odds in 1883 will doubtless retire and the reins, when surrendered, will probably be tendered to Mr. Clarkson, who Is able and well qualified for the arduous duties of the position. In fact, next after Senator Quay, Clarkson Is tho best fitted for the position, and with tho loyal support of tho Republi can host ho will make a magnlllcent fight provided ho should bo chosen to lead in the great contest of next year. A Republican victory Is notouly po33lblo but probable prov ided, of course, tlie Republicans of tho Union enter Into the light with spirit and courage. The light cannot bo won with divided ranks, or with factional disturbances; thero is but one road to victory and that lays through tho velo of unity. There must be forbearance all around the board. The rule of the hour should be forgive and forget. Let each Republican resolve to ac quiesce In the wishes of the majority; In other words, to do all his fighting before and not after nominations have been made and victory In tho state and nation will bo assured. The graml old party of progress has redeemed all its promises and long before 1802 rolls around the fruits of the wise tarifTand other legislation of the Fifty-first con gress will be so apparent that none, short of full blown Democrats, will oiler the sligheat objections to a con tinuance of Republican rule. It is tlmo for factional diilorences to cease ami from this hour forward lot there be peaeo all along the line. Victories can only be won by united action and hence tho wisdom of getting together of rallying under one common banner for vigorous campaigning against those who advocate tho withdrawal of tho barriers erected to protect American labor.

ITEMS GLEANED IN THE EDI TOR'S SANCTUM. THE TATTLES OF THE TATTLER. Gossip That is Dlshod Up to tho "Newspaper Man in His Sanc tum Mingled With Scraps Caught by Himself. The othor day I wus convoking with ono ot our moat influential and prominent citi zens, whoso opinion on most any subject of publio interest 1 hold in high ostoom. Dur ing tho courso of our talk tho members of tho W. C. T. IT. and its raid upon tho whiskey tratllo was brought up, und tho gentleman in question procooded to criti ciso its mombers very severely, and went so far as to stylo them as nltogotber too fa natical and visionary. Now, this is all wrong. Whilo I am not a member of tho Union, yet wo must recog nize tho great fact that tho women who compose it are an earnest, gonorous and philanthropic body, working in tho best in lereuot society. Uhoy do not act upon tho theory ot tho revivalist, who drives re cruits into enmp. No. Thoir's aro tho calmor and moro Golf-conviuoing uioihods, and they'll win by theso if tho gauio is to bo won at all. Don't imagine, dear reader, from these romarks that I am a temperauco man, in the sonso usually accepted by tho VV. O. T. U. I am not. But, novortholess.the fact re mains that tho noble work voluntarily ac cepted by the3e wonion is for our indi vidual good. Every crltic of tho Union, whon pinnud right down to it, ha3 been forced to acknowledge that ho or shn had not gone into anything like a caroful con sideration and examination of tho thoorios oxpoundod by tho W. O. T. U., and that's jut whore tho difficulty lies, and what makes their work tho harder. A pointer to tho membora of tho Union. Turn your attention to tho fair sox. Wore their battorioa directed with the same amount of onorgy that they liavo exerted in tho causo of tomporanco in tho elevation of fallen women, I think they would bo crownod with a greater degrco of success. And it would bo no new departure, oithcr. I am informod that tho womon of Wilkoa Bsrro oxerted thoir i-fforts in this respect, and met with a great dogroo of success. What a grand field for them in this town, l'roloct our girls from tho human serpents that infest society. Our courts aro too loniont with tho wrockers of female virtue. It judgos will not moto our proper punish ment, thon lot tho laws bo made so vigorous that tho criminal will not escape just pun ishment. . And juit boro a quostion arises. It is this: "What shall bo dono to sheltor tho fallon woman? It is not enough that they shall ba shown tho orrojof thoir way, but thero must be tomo sort of provision for thorn alter their reformation. Tho social systom of our various churches should throw its protecting arm about them. llut will thoy do it ? Thai's the question. On tho train tho other day I overheard two prominent Domocrnts Discussing tbo political situation, from their remarks, and tbo inferenco to bo drawn therefrom, it seems quito probable, if not a forcgono conclusion, that the coming Democratic convention will endorso Judgo Oroen for renomination. From a Kepublican stand point I don't boo what difference It will make, for thero la no doubt of his election If bo securos tho Kepublican nomination. But why bring tho judiciary into par tisan politics? Every talr-mlndod citizen, with the probablo exception of tho political office holder, wUl agroo with me that tbo quali fications of n candidate for tho Judgeship should not ba estimated from a political standpoint. Thoro aro other attainments necessary, and which should Influence tho cltizon iu summing up tho qualifications of a judicial candidato. Judgo Croon's ability as a lawyor has never boon questioned, even bytho men who dluor with lilm politically. But, on tho othor hand, I bavo nuvor beard any thing but tho highest pralso for his attain ments as a practitioner at tho bar. Hinco his olevatlon to tho bench, ho has honored thatoxaltod position, and his derisions will bear tho closest scrutiny and criticism of tho most learned deciplo of Blackslono now at the county bar. There Is no Demo cratic candidate who has boon mentioned as his suocessor that Is his equal In legal at tainments, and his social charactorUtlca are of tho highest order. Honestly, I think It would b-j a shrowd move on tho part of tho Domocrats to en dorso Judge Green for renomination. PEUSONAIj. Hon. Klias Davh, of Wadosvllla, was In town yesterday.
