VOL. VI.--NO. 18S. SHENASTDOAH. PA., THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 10. 1S91. ONE CE THE 8TTBE ROAD TO OPULENCE LIES KNEE-DEEP THBOTTGH PRINTER'S INK MoKINLEY DID IT. A towu uubIiiws man yesterday showed n Hkhald reporter n circular he had just received from a New York City nrm rending aa follows: "The MoKlnley bill having advanced ' the duty on gold and silver medals to 60 per cent, (freo of duty heretofore), it In Impossible to Import them In fu ture and sell thum at the old prices. We have therefore begun the manu facture of medals In our Nhw York factory for chalices, etc., and, having made new dies with correct EuglUh texts. The following list will show we are prepared to make them now at thnnlfl nrtae." The members of the ilrm are Democrats, too. This is a great country. It can feed the whole world and still give its owners meat three times a day and bread and butler between meals. The country is richer to day than it was in 1860. Then there were $13 85 for each inhabitant; now there is $21.10. Republican rule aud pro jection are the cause of the change for V the better. Hhenandoah Is fortunate in this particular : Our business men nre united in all matters of public enter prise. They only have to contend ngalnsttho little two-for-a-nlckle fel lows to carry any broad-guage meas ure that will build up the town and advance Us Interests. Closely following the wholesale denunciations of State Treasurer Boyer by the Democratic Convention, comes the testimony of Governor Pattlson before tho Legislative Investigation committee, which as far as the Gover nor could go, vindicates the State Treasuier from the charges of speculat ing In state funds. The Governor testified that the bank of which he was President had state deposits of many thousands of dollars, but had paid no Interest on the same nor given , any other consideration for its use.

Other bank ca3hlera of Philadelphia, whose banks had state fundson deposit, gave the same testimony. Thus do the Democratic Blunders fall to the ground oven upon tho testimony of n Democratic Governor. An Associated Pj ess dl-patuh from Loudon, giving the views of leading manufacturers In England, Scotland and Ireland, ou the MoICluloy bill, reveals the fact that the hope of tho foreign manufacturer Is concentrated in the belief that tho result of the next election will be against the tarifi. Acting upon this belief they are re ducing the C03t of manufacture by reducing wages and nre thus ablo to keep up the volume of their Bales In many kinds of wares. They frankly admit that If America sustains the tarifi their business will be greatly curtailed, therefore the fight of 1692, so fur as the American working man Is concerned, resolves itself into one for bread, for If the free traders should Bucneed In electing a free trade Presi dent and a free trado Congress next year, it will be a victory In the in terest of the British manufacturer and opposed to the best Interests of Airier lean labor. The census gives Pennsylvania a uopulatlon of 6,158,014. Tills makes her larger numerically than many nations of whom the world bears much, nnd her people average much hlgber than theirs in wealth, eduea tiou, Intelligence, and industrial skill, Here are the populations of some of them for comparison : Argentine Republics 3.028,000 JUlglum 5,8i3,278 nhllk .-. 2.627.SJ I Denmark 1,1W'0.'

XGEPTIONS FILED YESTERDAY. , Musoum Floor Goes Down. Fortunately Nobody Sorlously Injurod Moro Baso Ball Proaocutions. Tho following oxocptions to the report oi tho commissioners appointed to report on the I'dvi-nbllity of dividing tho wards of this borough wore presontod to tho courts at oUsville yesterday and orderod fllod: First. Tho petition is void booaU'O It inks for a division of words already created nto two or moro wards and to or.ct now wards out of parts of two or uioro wards. and is thoroforo bad for duplicity. Socond, Thoro aro a sufficient numbor ot wurd alroady existing in tho said bor ough, and tho creation of four additional ards will rondor tho borough council and school board of said borough too cumber- soruo forgood government of tho said bor ough and school district. Third. That said ward could be divided into a sufficient number of voting precincts without disturbing tho present arrange ment of tho ward, and thus accommodato tho voters of the borough without disturb ing tho present municipal divisions. Fourth. The division as mado by tho said Commissioner is neither mado of compact and continguous territory as nearly equal in population as Pottsvillo, but aro composed of districts of narrow width and groat length and very incon venient to tho voters of said new district. Fifih. That said now wards as laid out by '.ho saii Commissioners aro not of equal population but aro of largoly unequal pop ulation, Tho exceptions were filed by John A. Nash, Esq., the attorney for tho parties who opposod the p -titioners whon tho hoar, ing was had in this town somo woeks ago. Air.

A Floor In a Museum Goes Down Tho storo room in Bobbins' building on South Main street, formerly occupied by T. Rico, has been occupied by an Egyptian mummy museum tho past few days. Last night about 150 men and boys crowded into tho place. Tho woight was lot groat for the floor and down It went. Tbo sound of falling lumber, combined with tho shrieks of fright by tho timid and oaths of the unterrified made tho place a pandemonium. Tho north end of tho floor broko from its fastenings and the couth end retained a hold upon tho foundation wall, forming a toboggan slido, and down went tho men and boys Into a heap, with the musoum manager and a couple of Egyptian mummios on top. Tho drop was about eight foot, but fortunately no one sustained moro than a few scratches. An examina tion of tho placo showed that when tho building was put up the carpenters found that their joists were too short and they rested them upon a 4x2 pioco fastened with spikes to serve as a girder.

A Jolly Gathering. Oommunloaed. A very sociable gathering of the Shen andoah Choral Union was hold at tho Watson House, Tuesday evening. The main feature of tho gathering was tho pre sentation of a very handome badgo to lh!r loader, Prof. P. T. Evsns. The badgo Is an elejrant piece of workmanship and tho professor may feel proud of it. The prnsentation sponoh was made by Mr. .1. J. Price, tho Main street dry goods mer chant, who stated that the bulge was not given in compensation for services ren dered, but was a token of tho high ostoom in which tho gallant loader is held by the choir. Mr. Evtns responded In a neat littlo speech thanking the choir and also ad vising them not to bo tho loit discouraged by tho defoat they suffered at Lakt-sido, but to bo firm with tho determination to win back their laurels at an early period. Tho choir then opened tho evening pro gramme by singing ' Shatlor the Bonds," which excellent pieco was followed by ' Hon Wtad fy Iladia," which wai ably sung by Jlr. Thomas Uavis, of Wm. Penn.

Mr Editor: It is due to tho gentlemen who nppoared as prosecutors of the Sunday base ball player that an explanation of thoir action should bo mado public. As a re-ultof a largo public meeting committees were ofllcially appointed by tho goneral churches to deviso somo method of secur Ing a betlor observance of tho sabbath among us. At a subsequent meeting of these committees a volunteer sub-corn mitteo of one from each church und ono at-large was appointed to bring such tiros ecutions as might bo agreed upon. It was decided to make Sunday base hall tbe first object of attack, becaueo mora peoplo aro implicated in it and because its very popularity it loading so many of our young peoplo astray From tills it will appear that the pros ecutors aro acting not for themselves, but in bohalf of tho churches who aro behind them and stand pledged to their support. Theso prosecutions, and others that aro likely to follow, aro not potty prosecutions growing out of personal grudges, but tho first exhibitions of a movement on tho part of a considerablo number of intelligent, upright and determined men and wumon who soek nothing but tho wolfaro of tbo community through tho enforcement of! tho law. The persons against whom proao cutions may ho pressed havo no truer triends than they will find intheporsons who press them tbo moment they "cease to do evil and learn to do well." In behalf of law and order, I am very truly yours, Wm. Powick, Pastor Methodist Episcopal Church. Shenandoah, Pa., Sept. 10, 1891.
