Considering tbe time of year and the _factjthat there were this year no contests over the county offices, the attendance of delegates' from tbe several towns was very large at. the county convention last Wednesday, whieh^ betokens a live- ly interest fn the campaign almost upon us. In fact, while there was only here and there an absentee, fehe town of Franklin sent two delegations, and a contest was. entered before the committee on credentials. Immediately after or- ganization the committee appointed by the chair, which waa composed »f Hon. W. T. O'Neal, George Williams, H. EL Dudley, S. G. Grow and W. B* ijteen- berge, heard tbe statements of both sides aptly decided which delegation committee for Malone are tbe same as laa* year, rfat O. S. Lawrence, Thomas Adams, C. W. Breed, Henry Baker and M. A. Martin. » Tbe convention adopted jfcfce following resolutions, reported'by a committee Com- posed of M. E. MeCtary, Boa. W. T. O'Nett ana A. I. Vosburgh:— The Republicans of Franklin County, ia con- vention assembled, at ther opening of another presidential campaign, reiterate the principles embodied in tbe platform of 1898, which have -brought prosperity to our country and plenty to he homfts of onr land. The promises of protec- ion to home industry and an honest dollar based- upon the best and only safe standard—jtoW— have been fulfilled, and the predictions of the beneficent results to follow had been realized. The busy ham of factories which have been long silent, the employment of labor in every field, the steady advance in property values, the hap- piness of the people in all stations, of life attest the wfsdotn of those policies and the\ffiteitrity\ and statesmanship of the men having the des- tinies of the nation in their keeping. Under the administration of President McKinfey, whom we hereby indorse for a renominat;0n.onr?comnieree, domestic and foreign, has been wonderfully in- creased, tbe immense resources of the nation rapidly developed, and oar prestige abroad so extended and intrenched that the United States has taken its place among the foremost powers of the world. Bis sound statesmanship and wise foresight encompass not merely the present yeir or decade, bat the great fatare-, and the exten- tioti of oar domains to the Orient was a neces- sary step in the estabBsfiment of commercial su- premacy on the Bacifie. which, by right of loca- tion and infinite design, belones.j£ the United States. If we continue mmdfal of our opportu- nities no lapse will be permitted to deprive as of this prize which the powers of Europe have been warohine with jealous eye—realizing that it means the employment and prosperity of mil- A farmer who by mistake drank just before retiring a~ptnt of yeast for butter- milk arose three hours earlier than usual oexfe morning. \ _ '.

Mas. S. A. was entitled to sit, on the question of regularity. The contestants were Cor- nelius Dewey, George Lamson arid Mon- foe Costlow, on tbe one hand, and E. W. Duffy, Francis Skiff and J. P. Kilmer, on the other. The farmer delegation was seated and the matter amicably arranged by the appointment of tows committees, one committeeman for. each side to call caucuses for the future. ''All's well tkati ends well\ is an old saying, and this re- sult will no doubt have a helpful effect in. Franklin. It is at least fortunate that no bird feeling was manifest after the decision. The convention organized by the unani- mous selection of John Carrier, of Bright- ton, for chairman, B\ S. Chapin, of West- vtlle, and 6, S. Lawrence, of Jdalone, sec- retaries. Mr. Carrier made a very neat a»d pointed speech, which was one of ttee hits of the convention. C. H» Sisson, of Aitamont, and Wm. Johnston, of Chat- iugay, were appointed tellers.

Tbe nominating speeches were short and to tbe point and were BO neb appreciated hj the candidates.

The march of civilization is fast encompassing the thickly populated Oriental countries, and we, as a «peo- ple, would prove derelict in our duty to others were we to ref ose a foothold in the Philippines, and to lend a hand in the reformation of Asia. We would prove derelict incur duty to ourselves, were we to cast aside the markets just opening «p to commeree^whioh will soon be necessary for the disposal of oar handiwork. Kkpanskra ' i a fact, and there is no turnimr backward. We ouid not if we could, for it has been the welJ- eftned policy of this nation under all its presi- denta. There is ainple reason for c<mgratula- tion and rejoieingr. President StKinley's re-elec- tion will mean the continuation df the many blessings which the past three years have brought in unusual measure. « The same wisdom which has characterized the conduet of oar national affairs has, uader Booaevelt. manifested itself throughout the en- tire fabric of our State government. Of nn- fllnchine honesty, strenuous in worthy endeavor, and possessed of the conviction that be would rather be right than be president, oar governor has given patient attention to the conduct of the State's business in its minutest detail. He is a working governor, independent and self-sacrific- ing, of high ideal and indomitable courage. In \^State's best interests no other been more than his peer. The Re- publicans of the State are to be congratulated on the prospect that he will again be their stand- ard fceafer. The needs of the whole people have been paramount without regard to class or condition of men. The_ laborer and the artizan. the farmer_and the capitalist alike have shared benefit? under the present State government. and exalt the justice of tbe administration of the many and perplexing interests of tbe common- wealth with omiorm praise. The coming campaign will be all-important in JUT national history. The question will be pre- sented for decision whether we shall hesitate m th'e march forward to fresh victories in our do- mestic and foreign economy. We pledge our- selves to exert our utmost endeavors for the suc- cess of Repablifem doctrines and the regular national ana State tickets to be nominated by our party, believing that their predominance is vital to the internal welfare of the country\ and to a proper regard for our external interests in every land, on every sea. O. S. Lawrence, W. H. Flack and Hon. W. T. O'Neil were appointed a committee to fill va- cancies should any occur on the ticket. All in all the conventioa was one of the most harmonious ever held in the county. The ticket is an excellent one, Republi- cans are united and there ought to be no difficulty in making our majority larger next fall than ever before. SOCIAL^ AND PEttSOSAL.

Miss Me tea If and Miss Jameson, of Mre* Phillips* mUHaery parlors, have goae to New York to make purchases for the spring opening. Mrs. Geo. C.

W. & O., died Wednesday uight at bis Jomein Syracuse. Mr. Butterfield has been ill nearly a year, suffering from paralysis due to a brain lesien, and often his coudition has been critical. For some time bis friends have had little on which to base their hope for his recovery. Mr. Butterfield will be re- membered as a eian of energy and re- markable business talents. Daniel Prescott, of Chateaugay. while under.tbe influence of liquor one day last week, went into the hotel and telephpned bis wife, who was visiting ia Brushton, that he was dead and asked what should be done with tbe remains. Mrs. Prescotfe took tbe first train home and was again shocked to Sod her husband standing on tbe platform. This practical joke bad a serious turn, \fof'on; Sunday last, five days tet, the death of Mr. Prescott occurred. Tbe appellate division of tbe supreme court at Albany has just handed down decisions in the case of Mrs. Luke Usher against Josiah Van Vrankeu, A. H. Le- fevere, Flower & Co., and the Interna- ional Paper Co., which sustain the posi- tion of Mrs. Usher's attorneys in that case. Mrs. Usher is suing the^defendanfcs for $113,000 damages for/^tbe conver- sion of stock held by Mr. YanVranken as collateral, and abe alleges a wrongful conspiracy of tbe defendants to deprive her of the value of her stock. Two actions have been commenced against the Ogdensburg & Lake Cham- plain Railway Company, for negligence, one in favor of Lottie Ferryall, in which she demands f2,500, and tbe other by Sylvester R. Ames, for $2,700. Tbe ac- tions arise out of an aceidetit which hap- pened on tbe-eveaiasr of Mar. 13. 1899, at a place known as CTDoooeirs crossing, io the town of Aitooa. The plaintiffs were driving togefcfcetAeross tbe r»iiroad track of tbe~O. & L. C/tl. E., when'they were struck byt a train which was passiug. Tbe venue iu both actions fe laid ia_CHn- toa county. Ames is a n^ktect of Can- ton, and Mrs. Ferryali is the wife of a hiF tei proprietor near Mooers Junction. Recently an action was brought %j the town of Piattsburgh against the eoanty treasurer of Clinton county to restrain him from paying to the State two-thirds of the excise money collected in the town on the ground that a speeial act' w subsequent to the Raines Liquor Tax law gave the entire amount to t he board of alms of the town of Plattsbtnrghl The motion was denied by Justice Kellogg a special term, which decision was after- ward reversed by the appellate division. On Tuesday, the court of appeals hand- ed dowo a deeistoa reversing the orcler of tbe appellate division, and sustaining that of Justice Kellogg. The county treasurer will therefore be compelled to comply with, the provision of the Raines Liquor Tax law, and pay over two thirds of the excise money -Collected in the town to the State, notwithstanding the subse- quent special act.

For two or three jears- ?ast there have been rumors that the pres- ent feridge, consisting of three arches with abutments of solid atone, had settled and become unsafe. It is known that one of t£e arebes ha*j spread away 'roan the other somewhat; but this is not surprising considering that tbe present ttroctTtrs har-sttjciMis^fatsrnresriy If uot quite fifty years. A while ago it was ex amined by H. H. Jones, bridge builder of the O. & L. C. Railroad, who pronounced t safe and as good an is required for the place. Indeed^ we doubt if aay of the modern structures, whether composed of steel or otherwise, would be a* good after seeing; the service jdWch the old bridge has givtn oor.«peo]p since beyond tbe memory of all save the oldest residents. But now we are told by one local aud >oe foreign engineer that tbe bridge is insffe and their reports appear elsewhere n this issue. We are told that the :bwn board are considering its removal ind the sabstitutiorrrjf a steel bridge at & p** of thirty PT forty thonsand doHar--s jjlight surpris fp^ t t Aflfteac tk« Cbarefce*, Tbe young ladies of the Congregational Chorch* will serve a 15c supper In Che cborch parlors, Thursday, March 23d-, at 6 o'clock.

With, we believe, nine-tenthw of tbe tax-payers of this town and village, we object. There should be no action and ao town meeting on the representation of any one or two engineers. That old bridge is too precious a heritage to be condemned *o easily. No such action should be takea without tbe unanimous decision of several of the best engineers in tbe State w*feo have not been sought out by anybody - interested in replacing it with another structure. Action must be deliberate and mly after the fullest investigation. We, have jo»t bonded the town for 16,000 for new bridges. That is enough for one year or two years unless by abso- lute necessity it must go higher. We have just built a Dew and expensive pave- ment over tbe bridge, and tbe question of the safety^f the arches came up then, baf our trustees satisfied themselves that le ! bridge was all right and went on with ie work. We care not who may want to (11 bridges. That ongbt not and will aot be permitted to enter into the ques- We are glad to learn that, Supervisor Lawrene* and the other members of tbe board will decline to give their consent to any such extensive expenditure without a vote of ttopeople.

Diligent irfqniry at tbe office of the State engineer and department of public works here fails to show that any author- ized engineer oi agent of either depart- ment has inspected the Maione bridge, and if such inspecdon has beejimade it WHS. without State official authority. On'a plain statement of facts tbe -State engineer himself believes tbat over a cbasoft such as Mai a street crosses in the center of oar village a steel or iron bridge is not nearly as desirable as stooe, and, sloce high stone abutments are required. the completion of the arch of stone would propably be DOC more and even less ex f peusive than any snitfole steel or iron ' * that could be supplied. If the ot-s are defective tbe entire bridge may Deed to be rebuilt, but it should be of stooe if it is to be permanent and it fs desirabie to save expenditure for repairs. The State engineer would probably send a competent man to inspect the bridge if such inspection is desired by tbe town officials. Xt is possible that, if defective, the'bridge could be repaired at much smaller *fost tfaau tbe ertction of a new one.

The lecture was almost entirely confined to a description of. fhis work. The speaker made the statement that there are so book-binders \n the United States, which was taken mart, no first-class oses, but he is edu- , n >ing some Americans to do this work aad the chances are thai they will be able to obtain very- high remuneration for their services. All in all his shop seems to l>e a fearful and wonderful place where people of all kiads and characters find work to do at good prices and incidentally improve morally.
