HE TEtKiM all Homes. HABBIOBUIie, SATUKDAY EVE1T1TIG, UAHCH 23, 1005. Established 1831. Vol. No. 71. 1 BRAVE MEN THESE. THEY FACED THE WORLD And Made a Gallant Against Slarery. Fight Majok Joira T.EssjiraaKE, of this city, is the possessor of a rare document, a reminder of over half a century ago, 'when the few men who believed that slavery was a corse and a sin had the courage to say so. It is an address issued by the "Managers of the Harrisburg Anti Slavery Seciety" in. 1837 "To the president and members of the convention of the 'Friends of the integrity of the Union opposed to the schemes of the immediate Abolitionists called to meet in Harrisburg on the first Monday in May, 1837." It is a strong paper, and gives the people to whom it was addressed to understand that these old original Abolitionists were terribly in earnest. It was promulgated long before Uncle Tom's Cabin was written, and at a time when slavery existed in its most terrible form. It took a brave man to attach his name to a paper of that kind, but there were brave men in those days. Here are the names of tha signers, all dead but one: Nathan Stem, Wm. W. Rutherford, A. Graydon, Washington Barr, William Boot, M. McKinney, Augustus O. Heister, John Winebrenner, Philip Enaminger. Mr. Heister alone remains of the nine. And here is an extract from this address: Gentlemen As citizens of Pennsyl vania. and as Pennsylvania Abolitionists whose schemes vou feel called upon to op pose, we beg leave, most respectfully to solicit your candid attention to the follow 1 lng conaensea view 01 our principles aau objects. Then follows the condensed view," consisting of nine articles. One says that the signers regard every member of the human family as a brother, and the highest obligations rest upon the people of the free States to endeavor to remove slavery from the country; slavery ia criminal and full of danger and it ought of right, and absolutely must be broken np. The second and third articles declare that Congress has no right to abolish slavery, but its abolition must come through State legislation. The fourth article declares that Congress has the right to suppress the domestic slave trade between States, and that it is the duty of the slave States to efface so foul a blot from the national escutcheon. The fifth declares for free speech, free press and free conscience. The sixth deprecates the forcible attempts on the part of the slaves to recover their liberty, counseling them "to preserve a quiet and peaceful demeanor." The seventh declares slavery to be sinful and injurious to the country, and its immediate abolition would be safe and wise. "All property of man in man should in sUntly cease." The eighth denies that the Abolitionists wished to do anything tend ng to a dissolution of the Union. The Bnth expresses a desire to protect the rights, and to promote the education, virtue andhsppiness of the colored race. Fin ALL', this document concludes as follows: fellow citizens, are our principles, nd so far as we know and believe, such vre the doctrines held by all anti slavery locieties in the land. And now we ask, aj you prepared to denounce these sen ti men a as unworthy of Penn lylvanians, of JepubVwans, or of Christians If so, beg nost earnestly to request that you will send forth a full, explicit and deniiie statement of the views entertained oa the subject of slavery, etc, by yotr reputable body, that the community ny compare your creed with ours, and drW their own conclusions. Our object is puely moral. It is to deliver our color brethren from slavery, and our whiL fellow citizens from the tinging repach of hypocrisy and tyranny, antpurselves and posterity from the judgmer of an offended God. This object, thrugb the blessing of God, we exoect to ifcomplish. The moral force of the univrte is pledged to sustain our cause. the history of the past cheers us on strenuous effort. The doctrine of imnediate emancipation must ultimately we hope speedily, banish slaverjfrom the face of the earth. Br little over a quarter of a century the'hing for which these men stood up so boJUy for long years was accomplished by ore stroke of Abraham Lincoln's pen, and the moral force of the universe" sustained him.

Grand Concert by the Harrlaburg Choral Society. That the proposed concert on May 19th, by the Harrisburg Choral Society, will be an occurrence of unusual interest to our music loving people, was evidenced this week by the addition of thirty new names to the honorary membership, besides a number of names to the active list. This large increase is partly due, no doubt, to the fact that honorary members, besides having free admittance to all the rehearsals of the society, are entitled to two reserved seats at the May festival. The outside public are also becoming much interested in the regular rehearsals at the Y. M. C. A. Hall. On last Monday evening the gallery was comfortably filled by paid admissions. This privilege seems to be much appreciated by persons not members of the society. The chorus is doing such excellent work that it is well worth the ten cents admission asked to listen to the grand choruses as rendered by the society. The enthusiasm of the active members over the good work being accomplished, under the inspiring leadership of Dr. Gilchrist, has been a matter for comment by visitors who have been attending the rehearsals. The culminating event of the season's work the grand concert in May is looked forward to by all the members with pleasurable anticipation. The rendition of such a work as the "Elijkh," in full, by such a large and capable chorus as we possess in this city, with such prominent soloists as will take the leading parts, should be a matter for congratulation by our music loving people. That it will mark an epoch in the musical history of Harrisburg is beyond a perad venture, as a work of such magnitude was never undertaken by any society that has existed heretofore in our city. Our public spirited citizens generally should aid the society by joining as honorary members, and thus show their appreciation of the excellent work being accomplished. HEW AHD STYLISH. A Remarkable Display for the Harris baric Xiadles. The wonderfully beautiful display of separate skirts, suits and dress waists at the Einstein Brothers' store is the talk of the city. This firm has remarkable good taste in selecting anything they offer their patrons, but they have certainly excelled their record in this respect in the handsome display that is now on view. It has been said that with one handsome dress waist and three separate skirts a woman has three costumes for street or home at little more than the cost of one, the com Dinations making a change in every in stance. To this end the Brothers firm have secured garments that are per lect in every way. The dress waists and separate skirts are "dressmaker made," with every attention paid to workman ship, style and finish. Their suits are de cidedly up to date, and are exceedingly clever conceits of the best dressmakers of the great cities. Some of them are models of the latest Paris and London styles, and au are pretty ana stylish. The vast establishment has been visited by many people wno aesire to see what is new and stylish. Series or five Ijeotures. The pastor of Pine Street Presbvterian church, will begin on Sabbath morning, March 24th, a series of five lectures on "Our Lord's Sermon on the Mount." The place which this sermon occupies in the records of our Lord's ministry, the rela tion which it sustains to practical and applied Christianity; and the attention given to it by recent writers outside, as well as within the church, are some of the reasons for a study of a section of the Divine Word which has always been attractive to the Christian ministry: (1) The subject of the sermon on the Mount, "The Kingdom of God." (2) "The Citizens of the Kingdon," Matt. 6: 1 16. "The Law of the Kingdom," Matt. 5: 17 48. (4) "The Life of the Kingdom," Matt. 6, to 7: 23. (5) "Men's Attitude to the Kingdom. Acceptance or Rejection," Matt. 7: 24 27.

TRACTION COMPANY. ARRANGING THE DETAILS Application for a Charter to be Made Soon. The formation of a traction company which will include the East Harris Durg and Citizens' passenger railway companies as outlined in last evening's Txlbgbaph, ia nracticallv assured, and application for a charter will probably be made to the State Department next week, xne aeiaus are now being arranged, the important features of the plan of consolidation having been agreed upon. All the larger stockholders of the two companies have assented to the traction proposition, which will reduce in large measure the expense of management and in other ways benefit the stockholders of both companies. The consolidation, it is understood, will mean the abandonment of the Mulberry street bridge extension, which has always been a most unpopular project to citizens not interested in'the electric railways. A prominent official of one of the companies said to day that terms of the proposed consolidation under the traction agreement was not proper information for the public at this time, but he said they were regarded as fair to all persons in interest. The publication by the Telkgbaph of the first reliable information regarding the doubling up of the East HarriBburg and Citizens' companies has set at rest a lot of foolish rumors which only injured those most affected.

We desire to extend our thanks the court officers for many courtesies extended." When court adjourned yesterday the jury in the case against Fred. Engle, of Royalton, for destroying saw logs, the property of the Lumbermen of Williamsport, had not come in. They had been charged at 11. Their delay was unexpected. There had been no witnesses for the defense, and the defendant had not been put on the stand by Mr. Paul Kunkel, his counsel. It looked almost as the jury would convict without leaving the box. They disappeared, though, and weren't seen all day. The verdict came in when court opened this morning. It was not guilty and put the costs on the prosecution. The Court turned to the jury and said, "Do we understand that you brought ia a verdict of not guilty and direct the prosecutor to pay the costs The twelve men, good and true nodded their heads in assent.

The grand jury for tho third time has called attention to the dangerous condi tion oi tne uemiocK bridge over Paxton creek. A constable also made re turn of this bridge a few months ago. But it is not repaired. A South Harrisburg citizen said to day: "A year or two ago Frank Downey recovered from the city $1,350 for injuries received by neglect to repair Cameron street, and the cily had no defense because the nuisance had been reported. I suppose the city will neglect this bridge until a suit for damages follows. The bridge is twenty one feet wide on a fifty foot street and ought to be supplanted by a new one of proper size. The county built a bridge at Sycamore street with the understanding that the city would fill approaches. Last fall the bridge was finished, but can't bo used because the city has failed to fulfill its part of the contract." Drawbangh Telephoae Company. Tho Harrisburg stockholders of the Drawbangh and Central telephone company are much interested in the present contest in Philadelphia. The Ledger today says: 'The Drawbangh and Central telephone bills, having been passed by select council, must now depend upon special meetings of common council for passage. Friends of telephone competition will, therefore, have to resist all attempts to amend the ordinances, or they will almost certainly fail of passage. And if they fail note will cortainly lie made of the men who, under any pretext, tako any action that obstructs their passage." The day of cheaper telephone service, it is claimed by the Drawbangh company, Is near at hand. Married at the Farsonage. Mr. Samuel W. Burd and Miss Kate L.

Surratt.

Monongahrla, Pa.i March 22. An immense gas well has been struck by W. J. Weixel Co. on the Zsbulon Hess farm, four miles from here, which is said to break all records in Pennsylvania. Its roar can be heard a mile and a half away, and its force makes the earth tremble near by and almost shakes the derrick to pieces. It is said to exceed in power the famous Ziegler well in the McDonald oil field, which had a pressure of 900 pounds a minute. The well is at about the center of 2,000 acres that are under lease and are yet to be developed. Two other wells near by are gaseous, and this is taken as a promise of an unlimited supply of gas in new territory. The head of the firm owning the well is a bookkeeper, who will probably be a rich man as the result. No estimate of the well's pressure can be made until it is cased, an undertaking that may wreck all the machinery before it is finished. Carnegie officials visited it to day with a view to purchase.
