A FIGHT 1S now on among Pennsylvania -
sylvania Republicans , having for
its purpose the overthrow of Senator -
ator Quay , the great reigning boss.
It will be a fight of extraordinary

preachers and politics will not
mix. He opines that men of the

brass band crusades against vice
and crime , The result has been , I
he says , that eradicating municipal . -
pal vices in one locality only
makes them break out in another

christianize the people so that
they will rise and wipe out all
forms of vice and lawlessness.

this space , and bracing her feet on

when its feet were within a foot of
the bank , and would have gone
over the next step , carrying 'Ger-
tie and the cart to the bottom. It
was surely a narrow escape.
