jfPTTTC SUES EOAD TO OPULENCE LIES KNEE-DEEP TI-1EOUGH PEINTER'S INK
The "Wllkes-Barre Record, which
was with tho opposition against Quay,
eays: Mr. Dalzell disappoints a great
. tn.auy of his friends in refusing to ac
pt Mr. Robinson's proposition, for
loth to retire from the League presi
dent contest in tho interest of party
Chairman Watres Is sufllctentlj
disinterested to give an unblused
opinion in the matter, and when he
Ptates very pointedly that tho Inter ts
of the party would be served by Dal
zell's acceptance of Robinson's propo
sition, the Allegheny Congressman
ought to acquiesce like a good patriot.
Chairmau Watres appreciates the fact
that to win this full It is necessary to
Buttle every discord within the part;;
ranks. Tho contest for president of
the League of Republican Clubs has
already caused considerable trouble,
and If tho fight at the convention
should grow unusually hot, as is prom-
' leed, it would cause sores that might
not be healed before the November
'Slr. Dalzell is too big a man anyhow
, to be the centre of a factional contest,
for a petty office that, if even captured,
would not bring him any particular
prestige. If the office was really worth
fighting for, there might bo some ex
cuse for his refusal to forego the pleasure
of occupying it? And, moreover, there
is no certainty that he will be elected
to it even if he should make a desperate
struggle for it. His refueal to com
promise with Robinson does not add
to his strength by any manner of
means, and apart from this clement of
weakness he lacks tho necessary num
ber of votes to assure ids election.

barometers of the couditlons of com

the land. The Pennsylvania is the
greatest of all our great nrtorles oi

of tho country into our leading marts

true Index of tho condition of our groat
mining an industrial enterprises.
The comparative statements of both
these lines for July, 1800 and 1891, are
especially gratifying.. The Pennsyl
vania shows an tnorcase of net earn
ings amounting to 5120,000 ou the
Hne3 east of Pittsburg, and for soven
mouths of the year, including six
monthsof general prostration of trade,
tho increase in net earnings on the
same lines was ?530,000. Tho lines
west of Pittsburg also show an Increase
in net earnings of $131,000 for the
mouth of July, and an increase of net
earnings for the seven months of
The Reading shows an increase of
nearly $100,000 in gross receipts for tho
month of July, with a Blight decrease
of expenses. Its increase in gross re
ceipts for the soven months of the
year amount to 5410,000 and the de
crease in expenses is ?S7,000, showing
a sain of nearly $300,000. The Reading
Coal and Iron Company shows an in
crease of $S4,000 in gross receipts for
tho mouth, and an increase in gross
receipts for tho seven months of tho
year of 5900,000. In both lines the
chief lucrease has been during tne
last month, showing that there is
a general quickening of industry and
trade throughout the whole country
All this is proof of general prosperity
of a growth in trade that is solid and

Tho Pennsylvania Telegram, published
Ht Reading, takes Rev. Martin L. Fritoh,
onoeof Koading, to task for certain deal
ings with the people of yorristown in con
nection with one Teisley and wife. It
soonis that Rev. Fritcb, who was deposed
from tho ministry at Reading some time
ago, has represented himielf to the peoplo
of Norristown as a canvasser for a journal
called The Ladies' Frieml, tho money
collected to be used for tho education of
Yolsley for the ministry. Tho Telegram
charges Fritoh and Yeisloy with duping
tho people and says, oonoerning tho Utter,
"from all accounts Yeisley was an all
around bad egg. Before ho boarded hero
he boarded with a lady named Underkoifer,
who had to sue for what ront was due her.
While here ho paid another bill which had
been runninK Boveral years. It is thought
that Vols'oy is not at Pittsburg as ho loft
word when he left horo that ho was going
thero to spmd his vaoation. His w'lois
doubtlose with him. Right here it may be
woll to state that Mrs. Yeisljy is or teems
to bo, tho business head of tho Yeisloy
household. Her name was Sadio Oberdou'
before it was Sadie Yeisloy, and she came
from Mifflinburg, Pa. Yeisloy, in addition
to his other accomplishments, claimed to bo
mind reader and faco reador. Alto
gether ho and Fritch appear to bo a prec
ious pair and deserve showing up."

of the papor to thu Schuyll.i'i Stil.nel, but
after trying for about eight weeks to re
volutionize local journalism ho dusted out
with his wife and child, leaving several
mourning compositors and merchants.
Yeisloy, in working upon tho businoss
men during his brief stay here, laid greht
fctress upon the statoment that ha had
itudiod for tho ministry and his goody
goody appearance, together with his stale
mont, aided him in securing considerable
printing at prices for which tho sto-.k could
not bo purchased.
But the Shenandoah pooplo didn't know
half as much about Yeisley as they did
after tho Herald republished an articlo
published in the SKamokin Dispatch
shortly after his disappearance from this
place. Tho Disatch referred to the man
as "tho irrepressiblo and scheming J. V

speak he said: "I have nothing to say, be
causo I don't liko tho organization of this
meeting. There are members here who
haven't got their churches at the buck of
them and I think we had better do nothing
than to make a mere sham."
James G. Hutfon endorsed Mr. Kurtz'
