The Roulette nine came to Coudersport last Saturday with "blood in their eye." They were reinforced by four Port Allegany players Dolley, Kin ney, Page aud Card who played very fine ball. First Baseman Hlevens be ing disabled, did not play, Devall tak- iug his place at flrst. Larrabeeand Cole were In the points for the home team, but as their work was not of a first-class order, they retired at the end of the seventh iu favor of Davenport ana uevau, who did much belter, Page and Gustwick did the battery work for Roulette up to the eighth, when Page'B arm save out and they were replaced by Dolley and Kinney, the Port Allegany battery. the game, Mr. Quick, Cou deraport's leadiug jeweler, placed i handsomely engraved Bllver cup in his display window to be iven to the winner of the game. A happier base ball nine than the Roulettes after their half of the ninth, with the score 15 to 11 in their lavor, would be hard to tiud. Their hopes of winning, however, were soon blighted. They had evidently forgotten that Dolley was in the box, and, oh, what a Bnap. This is the way it was won In the ninth: Klein made a clean base hit. Peek, with a base on balls, advanced Klein to second. With Cole at bat, the slow and easy-going Klein proved himself to be a "Flying Dutchman" by steal ing third. Cole reached first safely ou au error by Fessenden. Lar- rabee then bit a long fly to left that looked like a safe hit, but It was captured by Seymour. Devall made a base bit, on which Klein and Peck scored, Cole going to third. Davenport made a short hit to Dollev aud was thrown out at first, Devall goiug to second and Cole scoring on a wild pitch. With two men out and one score needed to tie, Bently smashed out a beautiful single, Deval tleing the score amid great excitement. The "veteran" Allen thought It was time to do business. Oh, for one of those old-time "swipes." The crowd did not have to wait long. Biff! Bang! The ball went sailing out into left field for a two-bagger, bringing in Bently witb tbe winning run. Stevens made a good umpire and his decisions were not questioned in the entire game. The score: COUDERSPORT. A B. R. IB. P.O. A. E. Devall, lb, Davenport, Bently. cf. lb Allen, 2b Mage Klein n.

We are Headquarters for the most complete line of Agricultural Implements Also best asortment of Builders' Hardware to be found in Potter County. The following, from the Renova Record, is a bit tough on this sec tion of the sixteenth, isn't it 1 Is this county forevermore to remain cipher in the district "Four years ago, when A. C. Hopkins secured the nomination in the sixteenth district, after a deadlock in the conference that lasted a number of weeks, and that came near costing the Republicans the loss of a member iu a section that gave Henry Clay McCormick 3,654 plurality in 1888, the agreement was ma le that Hopkins should retire at the end of two terms in favor of the candidate from Tioga, but this is something Hopkins does not proprose to do. "Alter silence of months, during which time ex-Senator Horace B. Packer has gone ahead and secured the conferrees from Tioga and Ly coming, Hopkins announces that ue will contest for the nomination, aud a large fight is on in the four coun ties. McCormick has had or ders from Mr. Quay to take the Hopkins contest in charge, and in return he is to be the next Attor ney General. The tip is out in that way iu any event, and the Ly coming conferrees are, strangely enough, out in support of Hopkins. "Mr. McCormick is the leader in Lycoming and has able assistants in Max Mitchell, Emerson Collins, x-Postmaster Emery and other sub leaders. It is easy to make the change and Packers chances are demoralized. Iu fact, bis friends, like -Jerome B. Niles and Walter B. Merrick, are up in arms over the new game. Niles was defeated iu 1880 by what was eonsidered a steal of the Potter connty confer rees, and has never recovered from what his friends set down as an outrage. Now that Tioga is in the field again to meet the agreement the Republicans do not propose that Packer shall meet the same fate aud a bitter struggle is among the prospects. "McCormick is ambitious. He was named for governor in the State Convention of 1890 by Emerson Collins and has always had an eye that way. "Speaking abont the matter last week a Williamsport city worker said What McCormick lacks is an acquaintance. He feels that he is not known over the state and is auxions to be on the popular side. It is understood np our way that McCormick is to bo the next At torney General, an office that will enable him to build up a campaign and Quay wants Hopkins in otlii in preference to Horace Packer, who was too independent in the Stewart year to suit him, and the trade just made means that Mc Cormick has Quays indorsement for future use, no matter what hap pens in the meantime. Our people put that construction on the movement and accept the fact that Hop kins will be nominated lor a tli'id term, no matter how long it takes to get him sate out oi tne comer euce "McCormick has not been down among the prospective memberships in the next Governor's cabi net, while Gen. Heaver, Lyman Gilbert and George B. Oilady have all had their turn in the general canvass. It appears to be settled upon in the West Brauch country, however, that McCormick will have the portfolio." HIT THE JUDGE- A Tramp Attacked Judge Treble at Fort Erie Tuesday And Sets The Worst of The Battle. Fort Erie people are talking about a lively hght that occured in the Court Mouse last Tuesday be tween Squire Treble aud Chief ol Foil ce O'Malley on one side ana a tramp on the other. Fort Erie has been bothered with tramps lor several days and the police decided to swoop down aud clean them out Constable McLaughlin arrested five hoboes Monday night They were tried Tuesday morning. All were convicted and sentenced to five days in the jail, or to pay a fiue of $5 each. Three of the tramps had friends at Amigari, who raised $15 and got their com panions out. When the other two tramps saw the prison bars staring them in the face they were augry. Squire Treble told them they would have to go to jaii it toey am not pay their fines. "I won't go to jail fur you or any other Canadian," said one of them who gave his name as John Burns Atttiesame. time Burns smashed Squire Treole in the jaw. The Judge got down from his ben eh aud attacked the tiamp. Chief of Pulitie O'Malley reached Bums at tilt same time. Judge Treble hit tbu tramp in the nose and sent mm nnunuering ou the floor. The tramp jumped to his feet and Chief O'Malley gave him another blow that sent hi snrawling. That took all the fight out ol tne cramp, "nave you got enough 1" asked. Squire Trebel "1 guess 1 nave," repiieu tne tramp. 'Well go to the jail for 30 days." Jealous Pole'B Dual Murder.

For CongresHmen-at-I Jirge, HANNIBAL K. 8 LOAN, J. C.BUCHEtt. The County Committee met today and decided to hold the Convention at Germania, August 28th. It was the almost unanimous sentiment of the Convention, and also of four-fifths of the Democrats of Coudersport, that Seibert should resign They did not want to force hhn out, but they gave him to nn derstand it would be a pleasure to receive his resignation. However, Seibert said no to-Uay. We are disposed to wait a few days longer. What's the use of holding a Con vention if Seibert doesn't resign 1 In his prayer before the Eepubli can Stat Convention of Iowa yes- terday, Rev. J. L. Weaver, of the Christian Church, said "The Dem ocratic party is about to be buried beyond resurrection. I pray that as the clods fall ou its coffin we may remember the good it did with the evil, if indeed, Lord, it has ever been responsible for any good The bigotry of such language from the lips of a professed preacher of the gospel is not astonishing in these days when the pulpit is made the rostrum from which peculiar doctrine 18 preached. It is language similar to this prayer of Rev, Weaver's that is fast emptying the pews in the churches. The Pullman Car Company, although it claimed to be doing such poor business as not to be able to pay its employes living wages, man aged last week to declare a quar terly dividend of 2 per a rate equal to 8 per cent a year. This does not indicate that the order for ears had fallen off a great deal which was given as an excuse for cutting the pay of the workmen. A corporation that is making 8 per cent, dividends ought uot to be compelled by hard times to gouge their employes iu their wages, But. it is evident that however poorly the men may fare, the Ful'man company is careful to maintain it own profits. Ita policy, however, may be to make its profits at the expense of its men. The Entebpuise hopes to see much good come to the working men of Pennsylvania from the im migratiou bill presented by Representative William A. Stone aod passed in the House without opposition or debate. The bill is far reaching in its effect on the system of inspecting immigrants, as the entire inspection is trauferred to foreign ports and placed in the hands of United States Consuls, instead of waiting lor inspection at New York and other ports when the immigrants arrive in this country. Mr. Stone says that he expects to see the bill taken up by the Senate at an early date and passed, and that already several Senators who recognize the evils of immigration have signified their intention to i ge its speedy passage. Governor Hogg, of Texas, al though uot a quadruped, is a queer animal. He predicted that within six weeks martial law would be declared iu California, Kansas, Col orado and Illinois, and that the an a re his la of Chicago would use dy namite and "bespatter the loffy buildings of the city with the lungs, livers and hearts of the citizens." Hon. Jerry Simpson has been renominated for Congress. Though it was Mr. Simpson's feet which gained him national notoriety, this Kansas populist's level head has won him considerable respect afc the nation's capital. The "President's predicament" is au oft-written alliteration these days, KILLED FOUR. A Los Angles- Ex Policeman Makes A Sensational Record. Los Anoelks, Joly .30. Three people iiJHt.aiitly killed and one fatally wounded was the wholesale murderous record made by Joe Craig, an ex-police officer, lasf night. About 5 o'clock Craig hi ted a horse and buggy uwiil drow to the houso of his divorced wite. Before Craig started he announced that he was going there with the intention of seeing his children, but murder was evidently his intention and he had armed wiih two revolvers and had bteu Uriuking h-avily during the afternoon. When he arrived at the home of his wile he deliberately diew a revolver and shot her dead- Her brother who was some distance Irom the house when the shooting occurred rushed to bis sifter's assistance. Craig shot him, indicting a wound which proved fatal. He then drove rapidly back to Los Angeles. Ar riving at the house ol his father-in-law, William Hunter, he tied up bis horse and, without any cere mony, ran into the house aud shot aud instantly killed his lather aud mother-in law. He then applied the pistol to his own head with (he intention of ending his owu exist ence, bnt only pucceerted in mlliot- inir a slight flesh wound. To neighbors rushed in and disarmed Craig, detaining him until the arrival of the police- He claims that his witt and her family have tre-- quentiy threatened his life and that his shooting anticipated the fulfillment of this threat.
