The state is in natural developed re sources the richest in the union, and it lias received the most ample tariff protection. This proctection, it is now pretended, is for the benefit of the American workingman, for the ad vancement of his interests, for the in crease of his wages. Notwithstanding all this, capital and labor are at war in Pennsylvania. They often are at war. Protection has made capitalists rich. It has enabled them to live in luxury far from the grim surroundings of their mines and mills, to maintain palaces in New York, in Paris, in London and in the hills of Scotland. Mr. Carnegie goes back to his home in which he was born a peasant richer, by means of taxes taken from the American people, than ths nobility whose hereditary castles lie rents. He founds libraries and music halls and lives like a gilded prince on his bounty fostered profits. His workingmcn, on the other hand, are always struggling for their rights. If they secure a share in the growing prosperity of the business of their em ployers it is because the latter cannot, afford to stop their works for a struggle. On a rising market tho wage-earners are the last to feel the benefits, and usually they gain their end after a pro test, a threat, or an actual strike. On a falling market they are the first to feel the reverse, for the protected man ufacturer insists on not losing any of the benefits of his bounty. If prices fall off the workingman must make up the deficiency out of his stip end. If orders entirely fail the works close, pay stops, and in this way the operatives of Pennsylvania lose from two months to 200 days every year. If labor becomes too troublesome by in sisting on its rights the manufacturer imiKirts cheaper and more subservient men from abroad. The story of labor in Pennsylvania is one of painful suffering or strenuous struggle. The fiction that capital is asking for taxes and bounties from the consumers in order to divide the money with its wage-earners is not believed in the mills and mines of the Keystone state. There the men who work with their hands know full well that what they gain from their employers is by compul sion, the compulsion of strikes or of the demands of business. Protection is for the rich to make them richer. It is hostile to the poor, and the poor are beginning to know it. NOWHERE was the Fourth celebrated with more enthusiasm than in New- York, where the Tammany Tigers held their annual patriotic and political meet ing. Addresses were made and letters read from all the prominent Democrats of the country, including Ex-President Cleveland. His name was given one of the greatest demonstrations it ever re ceived, and as it was mentioned by every speaker the meeting was almost one continuous cheer for our next president. THE expected fight between Scranton and Connell for the Republican con gressional nomination in I.ackawanna county will not take place this year, as the latter has withdrawn from the con test on account of illness. Great pre parations had been made for the battle, and the disappointment among the G. O. P. warriors in the Wyoming valley is intense. GRNEBAL JAMES B. WEAVER is the People's party candidate for president, hut the people's candidate is Grover Cleveland. ; A COMING GOVERNOR. I Ellas Carr, Candidate of the Democrat* of the Tar Heel State. I Elias Carr, the gubernatorial candi date of the Democrats of North Caro lina, is a practical farmer who has made money at the business. He is a well educated man, and had no idea that ho would be so highly honored by his party. The only Carr who was a candidate be- ELIAS CARR. fore the convention was Jules S. Carr, tho wealthy tobacco manufacturer of ( Durham. Mr. Ellas Carr has been pres ; ident of the North Carolina Farmers' j Alliance, and has held minor elective of fices in his county. He will be the next ! governor of North Carolina without doubt. In his speech accepting the nomination Mr. Carr said: "I know how i to do only two things: One is to super intend a farm, and the other is to vote tho Democratic ticket." Au Impregnable Candidate. For the third time the Democracy of the nation summons Grover Cleveland , to lead it against the host of Republic anism. The third time he is summoned I from private citizenship by tho almost unanimous voice of his party, with the approval of hosts of independents and amid the applause of patriotic citizens generally, whose interest in good gov ernment and honest administration is net hedged in by party lines. It was the desire—aye, the demand—of his party that the brave, courageous, hon est president who suffered defeat in the first battle for tho people's cause should lead them on in the final and decisive battle, when promises of victory are so abundant. The forces that compel the nomination of Cleveland will be poteut in the election. Grover Cleveland will be chosen to the presidency by the larg est popular majority and by the largest electorul vote ever given to any candi date.—Utica Observer. I UNION, HARMONY, DEMOCRACY. Differences of opinion and judg ment. in Democratic conventions are by no means nil wholesome indica tions, but it is hardly conceivable, in view of tho importance of our success to the country and tho party, that there should bo anywhere among Democrats any lack of harmonious and active effort to win in the cam paign which opens before us. I have therefore no concern on that sub ject. It will certainly be my con stant endeavor to deserve the sup port of every Democrat. Grover Cleveland's Card to the Public. Stevenson a Strong Man. Adlai E. Stevenson, the nominee for vice president, is a man of education, ability and high character. Unlike his Republican competitor, Mr. Stevenson has held an elective office, having served in the lower house of congress. Mr. Stevenson is exceedingly popular at home, as the record of his candidacies shows. He lives in a state which Sena tor Palmer is confident can be carried for the ticket.—New York World.

While filling the White House chair. Chorus. In the buttle next November we will fight the people's cause Under Grover Cleveland's banner of Just and equal laws. We'll never lower his standard, nor after fight ing pause Till he's in the White House chair. Chorus. Wo are hunting up a relic fcr the fair in TO A likeness of the foreigner who came across the sea To pay the loss of tariff on things which should be free, With Harrison in the chair. Chorus. Another thing we ought to have, and for it we'd be praised, And sight of it would please us all and make us much amazed— A picture of the workingman who had his wages raised, With Harrison in the chair. Chorus. Harrison's men will court again the tariff plu tocrat. And scheme to carry their ticket through by "frying out the fat;" But what the people favor is the honest Dem ocrat Seated in the White House chair. Chorus.

A Bellaire, 0., dispatch nays: "There is mtioh excitement in this section over a wonderful well on Pawpaw creek, near Salein, a vlllago on the Cleveland and Marietta railroad, fifteen miles south of Summerfield, Noble county. A well waa drilled to the depth of 1.400 feet about nineteen years ago. Oil or gas not being found it was abandoned. Sev eral years later water and gas com menced coming from the hole in great force, which threw the tubing out. That | gave it a chance and it washed out a large cavity, forty feet in dinmeter. Six or seven years ago it ceased to flow. Jacob Martz, about two years ago, filled the hole with logs, stone and earth and built a large born on stone pillars, one of which stood in the center of the cavity. "Recently gas burst up alongside the pillar with a report like that of thun der, a large flow of oil and wuter fol lowed, and before a naif hour passed around the pillar began to sink and was soon out of sight. In twenty-eight hours a basin some thirty-five feet in diameter and no one can tell how deep was formod and was filled with water, which is constantly in motion, and the earth for several feet around it also moves up and down. It is believed that tho well is an outlet for a subterranean sea of oil, gas and salt water, and that it is in the Maxburg oil and coal fields. Thousands of people visited it and are afraid to make an investigation. The oil, when separated from the gas and water, is of first class quality. The roar of escaping gas and the underground grumbling can be heard for miles around." Mai# Approaching the Earth. The mouth of August next is expected to bring important, if not wonderful and sensational, developments in the study of our mysterious heavenly little kinswoman. Aug. 5 next Mars will ar rive at a point directly opposite this earth, which it reaches but once in fif teen years, when tho distance between the two planets will be reduced from 141,000,000 to 85,000,000 miles. Upon that night a thousand telescopes will be leveled at the planet, which will repose in refulgent beauty in the southern skies, and a thousand eyes will seek to pierce the veil of distance that conceals the knowledge for which science thirsts. Wonderful results are expected by reason of the marvelous improvements that have been made in astronomical instruments within fifteen years and j since the last most favorable observation I was made. With the powerful lenses and the photographic appliances of to day it will be as if the far away visitor, tempted by curiosity, had drawn nearer to the earth than ever. Although Mars will be 85,000,000 miles away, the pow erful Lick telescope will magnify her to a size as if viewed at a distance of but 17,500 miles.—Washington Star. Count Herbert llismarck and the Italian. I met at a recent entertainment a gen tleman who had just arrived from Italy, and who had gone much into Italian society during a prolonged stay in Rome. He told me thut Count Herbert von Bis marck, when he lately visited that city, contrivod to make himself very unpopu lar by his arrogant and aggressive man ners. On one occasion he pushed so rudely against an Italian of high rank that the personage thus assailed gave vent to his indignation in very for cible terms. Without a word of apol ogy the insolent Prussian retorted an grily: "I am Count Herbert von Bismarckl" "That, sir, is an explanation of your conduct, but it is no excuse," wus the response.—Paris Cor. Philadelphia Tele graph. The Soda Water Season Open. Soda water fountains are blossoming out all over the east side for the sum mer season. There seems to be more soda water drank there than anywhero else in the city. Prices are one, two and three cents a glass. The highest price is for a new flavor which seems to be fashionable on the east side, though it has not yet apparently l>ecome known elsewhere. It is spelled in different ways, but the usual spelling seems to be Aramatariene rose. This is the cost liest flavor that there is. Another popu lar flavor, which sells for only two cents, is rosberry, according to the soda water spelling.—New York Sun. A Hoventy-Flve Foot Dive. At Arctic Springs Floyd Williams, a twelve-year-old boy, climl>ed a tower seveuty-fivo feet high and, reaching the last turret, dived off into the river. The descent was made in safety, and the boy after coming to the surface swum around for several minutes. It is regardod as a marvellous act. The tower was built expressly for Professor Leuv emnark, the famous diver, who gave an exhibition on Sunday by diving from the top, and who was said to be con sidered the only man in the United States able to dive safely from such a distance.—Cor. Indianapolis Journal. Teacher of On© .School Forty Year*. Mr. Carlos Slafter, who for forty years past has been the principal of the Ded hain High school, will tender his resig nation. There is much regret that he is to leave the school. The Dedham High school waa founded in 1851 and in l& r >2 Mr. Slafter became iU principal. From early manhood Mr. Slafter has been an educational instructor. Ho waa born in Thetford, Vt., July 21, 1825. He was graduated from Dartmouth in 1840. Boston Herald. The FUh Caught the Man. While capturing a large gar in the river Monday, a fisherman became en tangled in his line, was dragged from his skiff by the fish and nearly drowned. Hell) arriving, he was rescued and the gar landed. It weighed 152 pounds.— ~Velasco Cor. Galveston News. Snow and Apple lltossoms. When the apple trees In Franklin COUntv, Me., were in blossom on a re cent Sunday, snow claimed to be from six to nin4 inches deep covered the Runguley district, and a man rode in his b-tgh through the stnets of Phillips. 1 Agasßtn'i C\irmd Llf. Frank Agassin, the sole survivor of the cave in the Anaconda mine, is in the goneral ward at the Sister's hospital in this city. He says he feels a little sorer on his right shoulder and left hip than . when first taken out. This is oscribable I to the muscular reaction after the terri ble strain of remaining fifty-five hours in a cramped position, his left leg dou bled up on his breast. There is al6o a pain in some of the internal organs. The attending physicians at the hospital ap prehend no ill results, but say he will recover in a few days. His mind is not the least impaired, apparently. Agassin was born in Buris and came to this country in 1888. We had a simi lar experience to his late one when work ing in a mine near Georgetown, Colo. He was caught in a drift by a fall of rock that kept him a prisoner Bix days before he was released. Then he had plenty of water, as there was a spring at the end of the drift where he was, and was not cramped as he was this time, having plenty of room to move about. Ho had no idea of the passage of time during his incarceration. When he found himself imprisoned, with no pos sible chance of escape except with the aid of others, he shouted several times, but getting no answer he concluded to keep quiet till he heard something. At intervals he could hear the rumble of cars passing on the level overhead. He mode no call for assistance again until he heard the sound of his deliverers at work, when lie called out, and to his great relief was answered. He has hod an oxperienco such as not one man in a million has survived, and from coming through two such trials successfully may be said to bear a charmed life.— Helena Journal. Suicide Prevented by a Dog. A noble shepherd dog, the property of Joseph Langin, has performed a remark alile feat that entitles it to wear a medal for bravery. The brave animal plunged from the foot of Soulard street into the raging torront of the Mississippi, and seizing a drowning man by the collar of his coat swam with him to the shore, thus saving him from certain death. The rescued man was Joseph Reinert, twenty-one years of age, who resides in the same house with Langin. Reinert had been playing cards with Langin. Some words passed between them, and Reinert, who had become very morose, vowed that he would commit suicide. He left the house and ran down to the river. Langin followed, but by the time he arrived at the levee Reinert had plunged into the water and was being swopt rapidly from view. Langin was helpless to save him, as he could not swim, but his dog, who had followed be hind, plunged in and reached Reinert just as he was disappearing.—St. Louis Republic. Long Distance Telephone Lines. The long distance telephone systom has already attainod large proportions in this country. Beginning two or three years ago, in an exjierimental way, through New England and New York Btate, lines were next run across New Jersey to Philadelphia and thence on ward to Baltimore and Washington. Until recently the line between this city and Buffalo was the longest in the world used commercially, being about 450 miles and giving excellent service. Be tweon Boston and Pittsburg, via New York, communication is often had over 000 miles of circuit. A little while ago a trial was made lietween Newark and Boston, connecting through Philadel phia, Pittsburg, Erie, Buffalo and Al bany, giving about 1,000 miles.—New York Telegram. Peculiarly Afflicted. One family in Utica is peculiarly af fected. They have hay fever in the house six months of every year. When the trees bud the wife comes down with it, and for two months she wheezes, sneezes and coughs night and day. At the end of the two months she lends the disease to her husband, who keeps it until the grass is ripe and haying be gins, at which time ho transfers it to his sister, who is also a member of the family. For two or three years the family has been regularly visited by the disease, and now the coming of summer is hailed with anything but pleasure, for it brings misery with it.—Utica Obser ver. Dug His Way Out of Jail with Toothpicks. A Navajo Indian, arrested for theft ot Gallup, N. M., was fed before being put in jail. While at dinner he provided himself with a couple of toothpicks. After incarceration, a few minutes' work with the toothpicks enabled him to loos en a piece of wood 2 by 4 that Was stuck in the wall next to the cell door. This removed, a large rock about twen ty inches square dropped out of the wall into the main room of the jail, where he found an iron stove poker, which he used to pry off the inside door casing. This done, he was a free "Injun," and is still at large.—Phcenix Herald. Paper Making at the World's Fair. The proposed exhibit by the paper makers at the World's Columbian expo sition will mark a wonderful advance ment in this branch of manufacturing, which is now fifth in the list of Ameri can industries, having risen from the tenth place since 1880. It is important not only in its magnitude, but, to quote the motto of a leading paper trade jour nal, "The consumption of paper is the measure of a people's culture."—Engi neering Magazine. Quakers Fighting Over a Church Organ. The Friends' church at Odon is in a factional fight over the use of an organ in worshiping.
