THE TOWN TO BE 'FENCED IN. Shenandoah's Boastod Enterprise) Has Taken WlngB and Flown Away Tho Old Fogies Must do. Tho mooting that was caljod, through the eolicitalion of several of our prominent citizens, for last Fridiy ovening, for tho purpose of forming a Board of Trade In town, proved to bo what vo partly antici pated, a compioto failure in fact, thero was no mooting hold Ono or two of those whoso namo3 appeared in theso columns on Thurfday In this connection, appeared at tho hotol in the course of tho oyonine. looked in through tha windows, and then solemnly and quiotly moandered up tho street, with tho feollng that thoy had faith fully performed their duti s as publlc spiriloi citizens. Othnrs claimed the no tice was too short, not giving sufficient tlmo in which to p-eparo themselves for this grand event and procuro tho dross suit which should bo worn on all occasions when grave matters of state are to be con sidered. Then, again, thoro woro a low who could not resist tho fascinations for tho tusoatorul sport for a few hours in favor of their fellow-townsmen and tho borough's futuro prosperity, while there wero others whose industry compelled them to devote thomsolvos on this 'particular occasion lo garden-making by moonlight. With all theso varied and unforeseen ob stacles in the way of tho formation of a Board of Trado, tha result is not to bo won dorod at. Tho IIkiiald has dovoted con sldorablo spare to tho discussion of this question, and justly feels that tho failure was not duo to any lack of interest on its part. Can thoso citizens, who it is but natural to as.uma should tako tho initiative in such matters, say tho same? Wo leave the tolution of that question to their own conscience and their fellow Uwnsmen. Tho boasted enterpriso and prating about helping along this aud that industry" for a start in the industrial lino that has been frequently Indulged in by some of our bus. mess men and property owners, seems to havo consistod mora of wind than anything olse. Wo havo tried to find somo tangible oxcuso that could be oflerod for tho inac tivity exhibited by many of our leading citizens, but have utterly failed, Tho whole truth of tho matter can bo summed up in tho ono word -jealousy. And why thoro should bo any caubo for ono citizen to bo jealous oi another "in this matter wo cannot eeo. All our citizens, both tho Oipitalist and tho laboring man, will ba pqually benefitted by tho'location of man ufacturing industries in our midst. All will reap a proportionate share of tho boi.o ttts to be derived thoVofrom tho monled mon will roceivo their percentage on tho cipilal invested, and the laboring classis will be furnished moans wberoby they can earn a livelihood for themselves and those dependent upon them. Wo are lead to the conclusion that Shon andoah, so tar s manufacturing industries are concorned, is ontirely depondent upon the tenure of lifo granted tho obstructionists and cheap tenement owners that this town is burdoned with. Wo must confess that tho prosiectsaro anything but bright, under these circumstances, for tho largost town in the county becoming tho loading manu facturing centre, for as a general thing the averago tenement owner is vestod with a long lease of life. So long as tho monled mon refuse to lend their aid it is usoloes to agitate tho blatter any longer. We havo boon requostod to call another meeting, but havo decided not to do so. believing that our Hurts would be rowarded in (his caso as in previous ones. While wo refuse to tuko the rsep nsibility of calling unctbor meeting, yet our columns aro al ways opn for such a notlco from any num ber of our citizens with their signatures attached. Our object in forming a Board of Trado is from no eelQsh motive. Wo are desirous of seeing our citizens take advantage of the opportunities oll'orod them and reap tho benefits. For wo bolievo, nolwithrtanding tho opposition that may bo met with Irom a cotorla or obstructionists, that foreign capltslists, recognizing tho great advantages oi this town as a manu facturing centre, will eventually locato hero and reap tho benefits. The Herald, m in tho past, is In favor, (if any movement that will enlarge opportunity lor business, Increa o tho volumo of production and trade, and givo the town a standing in this respect to which its advantages Justly entitle it.

The olghth sermon uf tho series on tho "Voyngo of Lifo" was dollvered In tho Methodist Episcopal church last ovening. It was dovoted to a consideration of "Tho Pastimes." Tho question ofton raised: "How do you past tho time away during a sea voysgo" was answored by an account of tho forms of amusement, and tho extent of gambling and drunkenness which are In dulged ' in. Extemporaneous ontertuln morits, lectures, sermons, etc., by tho pas sengers break up tho monotony. This raisod tho question of the pattimnsol lifo. Emphasis was laid upon tho fact that spare lime is tho character-making period of life. Spare moments are part of tho precious stuff of which lifo is made. Yet itsoemstobea burden to some. Many constitutional grumblors aro wasting bolter opportunities than many millionaires h ,d whon thoy latd the foundation of thoir princely lorlunos. So tho presont charac ter and futuro destiny hangs to a largo ex tent upon tho use mon mako of sparo time. Man is not a mero machine to bo kept in perpetual motion ho needs rot and chango to rocuporate bis wastoi cnorgies. But tho epidomlo of vacation shows that in many instancoin vacation is only tho exchango of busy idlonoss nt homo for fashionablo dis I pation abroad. But to many persons there is no alternative between buing a pieco ol porpelual motion and a men) baby that needs to bo amused. From tho imperious demand that is made for merely It mo kill ing amusemonts wo might think that the chiof and of man is to find somo easy ami congenial method of "killing time." Such paltry conceptions of lifo a,id its responsi bilities gives rise to' tho various forms ol plcasurjjthal antigoniz-i tne spiritual lifo of tho church, that gives support to tho Sun day nowspapor.

POLITICAL POINTS. Tho absoneo of contest and of bitter feel ing which characterized tho Republican primarios on Saturday shows that tho timo is ripe for tha comenling of all tho factions of tho party in Schuylkill county into ono harmonious and united body. Wiso ac tion by to-morrow's convention will achltvo this most desirable result and signalize tha beginning of n now und successful era in tho history of Schuylkill county Republi canism. For years tho party has only had to cease its internal broils und nominato decent candidates in order to havo at tracted Eufficiont oulsido support to oloct its tickets. It has, howover, unfortunately timo after timo disgusted Independent Dem ocrats who had announced their dissatis faction with thoir own nominees and their intontlon to vote for uny competent Repub licans by solocting tho worst possiblo ma ter.ul, and it tho samo timo taking such ction as offended tho bett Republican son timent and opened up anow factional sores. Tno Republican county convention meets in Pottsvillo to-morrow. Everything points to a harmonious meeting and tho nomination of a strong ticket. Miners' Journal. Tho following resolution, which wns a'loptod by tho Delaware County Republi can Convention, Thursday, is ovidenco sufficient that Hon, John B.
