Republican Camp Fires are Burning Brightly at tbe Southern Tier. LAE6E GATHERING OF REPUBLICANS. amest and Enthusiastio Hen Attend to Hear Live Questions Discussed—Speeches iy Dr. Eeinoehl, Geo. B. Woomer, A. S. Brendle, E. M. Woomer and Gen. Gobin— People do not Want a Change this Year— Tariff and Other Important Issues. The Republican meeting held in Shaef- erstown last evening was a large and nthnsiastic one. It was organized by lectiog the following officers: President, feorge T. Lanser; vice presidents, Wm. Mssinger, M. K. Sheetz, John B. btohler, )avid Newman and Adam Simmons; ecretary, B. F. Zerbe. Dr. John K. Reinoehl, candidate for 10 Assembly, was the first speaker and Carted out by saying that an unusual want of interest in the election this year was significant of the fact that the peo- le generally bad no fault to find with he party in power. He discussed the ssues involved in the preseut campaign rith particular reference to the people efore him, and was loudly applauded at le close. Geo. B. Woomer, esq., was the next ne to mount the stump. It was his maiden stump speech, as he himself au- onnced, but it was a master effort, aud lowed a careful study of the important uestions he ventilated. His audience •as delighted with his well digested re larks, and rewarded him with hearty pplause. Hon. E. M. Woomer, our worthy can- idate for Congress, was then introduced nd in the course of bis address explained ery clearly the benefits of the McKinley riff to the American farmer. A. 8. Brendle, esq., made a very ez- elient speech to his fellow citizens, in hich he showed more particularly how le McKinley tariff is a great benefit to he tobacco Industry, which has become n important factor in that section of lir county, giving employment to many ersons. His remarks were well receive*!, y his hearers aud had a good effect in rousing Republicans to greater activity. General Gobin was the last speaker and e addressed himself to the subject of epublican legislation in the State of ennsylvania,* tending to relieve the immon people from the burden of taxa- 011 for Slate purposes. He showed how ell he had served his constituency in IB Senate by opposing extravagant ap- ropriations of State money for ques- ouable purposes. . The meeting was ismissed with three rousing cheers for le ticket. The Shaefferatown band en- vened the occasion with music. The mock election announced to be eld at Fetter's Hotel, came to nothing, wing to some oversight of those who ad charge of the arrangements. This is o be regretted, as a great many voters were anxious to put their ideas about the iaker ballot to a test.
