Fee were appointed a committee to meet the speakers, and A, B. MoCIoy, J. J. YanEunn, W.K.Gaihraith, Joseph Templeton and W. H. Sipe a committee on finance. - The Chronicle Ttltgruph says: When Senator Sherman speaks on the subject of finance, his words are of the highest an-ihority. He rightly characters the Democratic proposition to go back lo the old . system of state bar.ks as n kind of lunacy, and a proposition which he cho scarcely discuss wilh palience, for it recalls the old adage of "gold for tha government and rags for the people." In his speech at North Fairfield, O , after vigorously combating the state bank platform of the Democratic party, he ad vom led uniformity of coinage among the nations and the adoption of an int"rnalio:ial napt-r monev as the representative ol g-ild c !'a t'ie world over. The marc!) of improvement will no doubt eventually bring this convenience. The Reporter says: Mr. Bennett, the Kansas cyclone, epoke in the court house Friday evening to n large audience. There is. a general opiciou to the effect that his answer to Mr. McKiuley's speech was not well given, but all agree that his defense of prohibition and his arguments for the party were strong and convincing. The Washington Observer says: Washington county scoured fleece 6ells in the United States for CO ccnta per. pound, twice as much as received for the same product in the Australian or London mar-bet. The amount of tariff is 33 cents per pound. Ex-Prt siiient Clevelaud has sent his check for $10,000 to the Democratic National committee. It is also reported tbat hi. personal friends, E. C. Benedict, W. C. Whitney and Don M. Dickinson, have each con'.ributed $10,000. The Republicans calculate on having a big parade in Canocsburg the week before tiii! neciion. umos are expectea rrom me neighboring towns and surrounding townships. " 1 hit eveniug the colored voters of the borough will meet in the council chamber to make arrangements for attending Monday evening's meeting. .'., Small red, white and blue lanterns are now carried by marching clubs instead of torches.
