For Governor, •
For Lieutenant Governor,
For Judge of the Supreme Court,
' For Secretary of Internal Affairs,
For Congressman-at-Large,
Ex-Go v. Curtin for Congress.
The friends of Ex-Cov. Curtin a
gain bring our distinguished mem
ber before the people of the county
and district for re-election to a seat
in congress: and while the people of
Centre county will give him their
suffrages vrith flattering unanimity,
it is hoped that the other counties
composing the far-famed Twentieth
District will cheerfully accord the
member to Centre county without a
serious contest. There may be oth
er gentlemen in Union, Mifflin, Clin
ton, Clearfield or Elk, who would
fill the position with credit and whom
the Democrats 01 their respective
counties would delight to honor, but
it will not be claimed that any one
local candidate is the equal of Gov.
Curtin in point of ability or experi
ence. When a statesman of nation
al reputation consents to serve the
people on the floor of congress, local 1
preferences and interests should be
of little consequence.
Gov. Curtin has met the high ex
pectation of his friends so fully, as a
congressman, has served the inter
ests of the people with such marked
ability, that the party in honoring
him witl£a unanimous re-election,
will honor and benefit themselves.
Throughout the valleys there is but
one vioce and wish as to who should
be elected our next representative in
THE State Committee of the In
dependent Republican held a meet
ing in Philadelphia last week to con
sider the four propositions of the
Stalwarts for union, all of which
were rejected with entire unanimity
and emphasis. There is now no
probability whatever remaining that
the two factions of the Republicans
will unite, and this fact alone, inde
pendent of the great popularity of
our candidates, would in itself be
almost enough to insure the success
of the Democratic party in the state
It only remains for the Democrats
to organize, carry on an active and
vigorous campaign, and victory will
follow. _
THE Republican party of Centre
county—in its collective capacity of
course —is bankrupt, and a cam
paign debt of some SBOO is anxious
ly waiting to be paid. The debt
wa3 contracted in 1880 under chair
man John I. Rankin. The creditors
are losing paiience and have employ
ed a Democratic lawyer to institute
legal proceedings. Lively times
and interesting developments are ex
pected. Go in, gentlemen.
To-Aay we publish the law governing
primary elections, and we trust every
voter wili read and familiarize himself
with the same. The better our citizens
understand their lights and duties the
better will they lie qualified, the more
anxious and active to elect good and
pure men to office.

What the Cameron Boss Rule
Costs the People.
The Republican party came into
power ift this State in 1861. and the
cost of the State government then was
SUtT,9I I.B3,exclusive of interest and
reduction of debt. The Republican ad
ministration of Governor Curtin, even
with all the enormously increased ex
penditures of war and the highest in
flation of values known in this age, in
creased the State expenditures to only
*1,481,485,67 in 1365. In ISC6 the
Cameron machine entrenched itself in
the Republican citadel and for fifteen
years it has been supreme in every
channePof Republican power in the
State. With it came reckless profliga
cy; the creation of offices for favorites;
the lavish waste of public money to re
ward partisan henchman and the abso
lute subordination of Republican integ
rity and manhood to the cohesive pow
er of public plunder.
In 1870, after three years of machine
rule in the State, the anDual expendi
tures, in time of peace, had grown to
$2,228,970.27, being an increase of
$1,281,058.41 over the expenses when
the party assumed power, and an in
crease of $707,436.60 over the expendi
tures under Governor Curtin with the
extraordinary demands of war to meet.
But the profligacy of Boss government
was not conteut with the expenditures
of 1870. The Auditor General's report
shows that the cost of the State gov
ernment for 1880, including its share
for the Legislature, foots us the enor
mous amount of $4,962,105.56—the
fraction over its millions being more
than the entire cost of the government
in 1860, when the Republican party
first attained power. This expenditure
does not embrace either interest or
principal of public debt. It issimply the
regular annual, and presumably legiti
mate expenditures of the State govern
ment. There is a Jigitimate increase
in schools and judiciary, made by the
Constitution, but t hat is little more
than half a million, and the other ex
penditures are mainly or wholly the
creation of machine legislation.
THE people of Pennsylvania have
'lately been carefully reading and con
sidering the record made by Controller
Pattison in Philadelphia, and tliev
have learned that his entry into the
Controller's office dated the beginning
of the practical reform that has chang
ed the city from a $2.25 tax rate and
three millions annual increase of debt
with little or no improvements, to a
$1.95 tax rate, an annual surplus of a
million and substantial inprovements
in every department, and that is just
the sort of an administration they want
in Pennsylvania. They see the State
expenditures more than double the
first ten years of Republican adminis
tration and then more than double a
gain in the second ten years, swelling
the expenditures from $947,911.83 in
1860 to $4,962,105.59 in 1880, and when
they study the history of Philadelphia
under Controller Pattison they will
strongly incline to the opinion that he
has just about the qualities for their
complaint. As a mere regulation Dem
ocratic candidate for Governor Mr.
Pattison would baye few elements of
strength. He has never popularizod
himself in the regulation machine way;
but as the most stubborn and success
ful representative of honest govern
ment the State can boast of he is cer
tain to prove the most formidable
Democratic . candidate presented by
that party for many years, and fiiends
and foes may as well look the fact
squarely in the face.— Philadelphia

Gov. Hoyt expressed the opinion in
Philadelphia last week that the Stal
warts would not have bothered their
head%about peace propositions if they
bad not believed that the Beaver ticket
would need the support of all the yoters
who could be drummed up.
Clinton Democratic Nominations.
LOCK HAVEN, August I.—The dem
ocratic county convention assembled
here to-day nominated the following
ticket, to wit:
Congress, A. G. Curtin, unanimous
ly; senator, S. Woods Caldwell; assem
bly, Joseph W. Merry, by a two-thirds
vote over L. A. Mackey; prothonotary,
L. R. McGill; register and recorder,
James W. Clark.
Titos. M. Marshall, who declined to
! accept the nomination for Cor.grcss
! nwi-at-Large on the Cameron King
ticket, said to a Pittsburg Post report
er, a few days ago:
"You Democrats have nominated a
great man for Supreme Judge, and by
Ileaven I will vote for him. I have
known him for years. He is a big
beaded, strong man. Ido not know in
Western Pennsylvania a lawyer of
more straightforward moral, Natural
strength than Silas M. Clark. He is
clean cut and courageous in asserting
his principles. If lie is elected he will
do himself honor and ahttl luster upon
the Supreme Bench. lie is a big man
all over and in every way. tlV* will
have the courage to pursue Ids convic
tion In every opposition. 1 have often
heard him before the Supreme Court.' 1
What tho Mormons Propose To Do.
OGDKN, Utah, July 26.—A wholesale
persecution-of the Gentiles has lieen in
augurated and arrangements have been
made for testing the constitutionality
of the Edmunds act in the Supreme
Court of the United States. If tlie de
cision should be adverse, tho Mormons
have determined not to submit, at any
cost. The polygamists, from President
John Taylor down, with the apostles,
bishops and elders in the most extreme
part of their domain, lmve separated
from their wives and are living openly
with one only. All t>olygamists have,
under orders, resigned from all muni
cipal offices, and monogamists, as
strong in the faith as those de
posed, have I Kim Selected and com
missioned in their places. Every effort
will be made to lieat the government on
all the sections of the Edmunds net.

the inspection of heirs and legatees, creditors
