Tnn Kepublican state convention
speaks in unequivocal terms favoring
the opening and free nw of the Co
Tnn Philadelphia Natural Gas
company, of Pittsburg, Pcnn.. con
trols 75,000 acres of territory on which
125 wells arc in use and have a pro
duction of -100.000,033 feet per day.
The number of hogs packed in the
west during the late winter season is
estimated at 5,900,000, a decrease from
last year of about 530,000 head. The
prospective hog supply poinls to a de
crease of 13 per cent
Four, more volumes of the census of

and $70,000 will be appropriated for
the purpose. The last census will bo
finished jtwt in time to prevent it

The output of the tomato canneries
of the United State3 and Canada dur
insr 16S7. was C7.C51.162 cans. New
Jersey took the lead. The industry

A MrnnEEEB who had been roleaseil
on tickel-of-lcave, near Tempcsar,
Hungary, went to ihc house of the
judge who condemned him and killed
the judge's wife. He then went to
the house of the notary and killed tho
latter's deputy. From there he weut
hoine and split the skulls of his wife
and children, after which he fled and
ha not been raptured.
Wno will h? the Kepublican presi
dential candidate is a question with
out an answer. Now, even guessing is
dono in the d uk. It is now thought
that the effort to tevive the Blaineboom
will be sucee'sful- in the convention.
Failing thai, nil is uncertainty, though
it is not improbable that tho conven
tion, when the time arrives, will,
owing to the undoubted strength of
Air. Cleveland, carefully select for
their candidate a leader who, by his
high character and general popular
ity, will unite tho party, and who, by
his assured protective record, will at
tract from the Democratic ranks all
protectionists When the- time for
selection comes it will not likely be
asked who is williug, but rather who,
if nominated, can bo elected, and that
one will becomo the candidate. At
least such appears to bo the hopo of
the intelligence and patriotism of the
parly who want no worn-out practical
politician to fight a losing battlo for,
but a man to fit in all things, and hav
ing tho universal regard, to fight a
winning battle for. Among the mill
ion of Republicans certainly, it is con
tended, such a candidate can be fonnil
