The national pike, after it leaves Uniontown, runs directly up the western side of the mountains. In places it is both steep and rocky, and had it not been for the timely assistance of the cowboy com- monwealers with their lariats the commissary wagons would never have reached the summit. As the »rmy toiled upward the rain •changed to heavy, wet snow, which came down slowly, settled upon the clothing of the marchers and wet them to the skin. Before reaching the top of the ridge the snow on the hills was over 1 foot deep, and both men and teams found the greatest difficulty in toiling through it The men bravely kept in line, however, reaching thia place late in the afternoon without notable incident CHAJ.K HILL, Pa., April 13,-The army of the commonweal had not regained its accustomed sprightlineus when the bugle was sounded in the old colonial stage house at 0:30 a, m.

The committee on rules, consisting of Speaker Crisp, Messrs, Outbwaite and Cotchings (dein.) aud Messrs.

There are now eitftit condemned prisoners in the jail here to be hanged within three months. There are six other murderers to be tried and it is thought at least three of them will hang^ ^ THE MATCH IS OFF. The Eo«»««m«nt Between Tonne Gould and Ml*. Tyler Broken. NEW YORK, April IB.—Howard Gould and Miss Odette Tyler, the actress, whose engagement was formally an- nouncad on March 87, are not to be married after alL Mr. Gould himself made public the fact that the engagement had been annulled, with the con- seat of both parties. This sudden conclusion of the romance of multi-millionaire Howard Gould and the pretty comedienne of the Frohman company was not altogether unexpected ifter it became known that Gould's ..brothers, George and Edwin, and his sisters were Irrevocably opposed to the alliance. As that opposition would result in Howard sacrificing one-half of his heritage under the terms of his father's will, which specified that none of ; his children should marry without ; the consent of the majority except at the cost of such a sacrifice, it was believed from Ihe outset that the match would never be consummated. The . fact that Miss Tyler herself broke it off is taken not only as an evidence of her natural independence, but of the willful spirit which has controlled all of her actions since her earliest girlhood. It is stated that a powerful reason which operated upon Miss Tyler's mind and induced her to throw her millionaire fiance over was the action of somebody unknown iu sending- a detective to Savannah, Ua., her birthplace, to investigate her early life. When Howard Gould heard this he was very angry, and is Raid to have pressed Miss Tyler to marry him at once. Hut Miss Tyler refused to listen to t,ho appeal of her ardent young lover and finally notified him that their engagement was ended. Whatever else may be said of Miss Tyler hereafter she will always be known as the woman who refused to marry one of the richest young- men in the world. It is her purpose to resume her career on the stage at the beginning of next season, and it goes without saying that her recent entanglement will not detract from her value as a footlight attraction. Another Win-rant I»ued. SAGINAW, Mich., April 12.—A third warrant has been issued for Newell B. Parsons, the confidential bookkeeper of the Wells Stone company, now under arrest on a charge of forgery. The complaint this time alleges that Far| sons abstracted from the vault railroad ' bonds payable to bearer to the value of 8488,000.

NRW YOBK, April 12.—The storm which began to level things along the Atlantic coast Tuesday night is gradually losing its cyclonic nature, although thu wind is still sweeping down the coast with considerable force. In this city and on tlic direct coast line the fury of the storm was spent by dawn, but in the wake of the cyclone, which is slowly passing out to sea, the weather continues sufficiently rough to cause well-founded apprehension for any unfortunate vessels which may be in "its track. It will be days before the full extent, of the loss of life and property can be determined. I'«rhaps the fate of some of the smaller craft, which were off the coast during the heightof the pule, will never be known. Certain it is, from the meager number of arrivals at this port since the storm began, that a. lleut of sailing craft lias been driven out to sea or forced to fly before the tempest under bure poles and to be tossed about at the mercy of the waves. All that is known now is that two more vessels, in addition to the two which were wrecked Wednesday, have been reported cast up on the coast, and that more lives have probably been crushed out during the night. Storle. of Wreck and DlMiter. There is scarcely a point on the Staten Island, New Jersey and Long Island coasts but sends its story of damage by the gale. Railroad washouta, undermined buildings, ruined bathing pavilions, demolished piers, wrecked sailing craft, uprooted trees and prostrate telegraph poles are some of the features of the tale of devastation which is told after the subsidence of the fiercest storm known in this fi- cinity for year*. TwMity-Five TIctlmi. Reports from places on the Long Island coast say that eight persor-s who were at sea in three yacht* are missing and we beliered to be lost .This increases the number of victims Irom the storm to more than twenty-five. f Three men who sailed in the yacht Sudlose on Friday from Rockrille Center for Long Beach have probably been drowned. They are: Thomas Mack and Carl Ayres, wealthy plumbers of Brooklyn, and James Hutchinson, employed on the yacht. Jones' inlet, the outlet from the bay, has been the scene of many wrecks. Searching parties have not been able to find any trace of the boat or men. Daniel DeMott, superintendent of the sawmills at Rockville Center, and his son Robert, who sailed oceanward in the yacht Joseph before the storm began, are missing. It is thought that they were caught outside by the gale and that both have been drowned. Three duckhunters started out on Monday afternoon from Prceport, L. ] , and have not been beard from since, ft is believed that they may have been drowned. Bad for the Farmer*. The meadows between Jersey City and Hoboken and Newark are several inches under water and nothing is visible except telephone and . telegraph poles. At Bayonno'many boats and boat bouses were washed away. At South Amboy a partially erected house was blown down and at New Brunswick electric light, telegraph and telephone wires were leveled to the ground. Incalculable damage was done to the fruit crop. The peach crop suffered particularly, and it is feared that the entire crop will prove a failure. Farmers throughout the state will be heavy sufferers. Sale Declared Off. CHICAGO, April 12.—The world's fair buildings are still the property of the South park commissioners. At the meeting yesterday afternoon the sale of the buildings to L. C.
