THOMAS A. HENDRICKS.
Again death has taken one of the
foremost men of this country and
this time the merciless king of terrors
called away the Vice-President of the
United States. In him the land
loses a statesman of proven abilities
and a patriot in the highest sense of
the word. He was a modest but
true representative of right and
reform in political matters and of the
duties of good citizens and officials to
the republic. His inculpable career
should have an exemplary influence
on his successors in public life.
Thos. A. Hendricks was born on
the 7th of September 1819, in Musk
ingum county, Ohio, and was conse
quently 66 years of age when he died.
When Hendricks was a child of three
years his father moved to Shelby Co.,
Ind., where he gave his son a
thorough education. He graduated
in 1841 and was admitted to the bar
in Chambersburg, Pa., in 1843. In
1848 he entered the legislature of
Indiana. In 1850 he became the rep
resentative otthe Indianapolis district
in congress for five years.and filled the
position of land commissioner of the
general land office for the next four
years. In the campaign of 1860 he
was the democratic candidate for
governor but was defeated by Henry
S. Lane. In 1862 the democratic
state legislature of Indiana elected
Mr. Hendricks U. S. Senator, and
there he was at once recognized as a
leader among his party associates,and
soon gained national fame. At the
expiration of his term as senator be
retired to private life, but in 1872 his
party again nominated him for gov
ernor and he was elected in spite of a
On the 30th of January 1876, the
third day of the democratic national
convention at St. Louis, Hendricks
was nominated for Vice-President of
the United States, with Tilden at the
head of the ticket The result of that
election is well-known.
Again Mr. Hendricks retired from
political life and started on a
European tour. Shortly after his
return he was nominated by the
Chicago Convention for Vice-Pres
ident and in November he was
elected. Last March he entered upon
THE torty-ninth congress will con
vene nextMonday,December 7. It will
consist of 325 members, of which 184
will be democrats and 141 republicans.
Since the democrats have a decided
majority there will be no contest for
▼ i *
In the senate, where as hereto- j
fore,the republicans are in the majority,
the election of a new president, w r hich
office became vacant by Vice-president
Hendrick's death, will be the first
work on hand. Of course, under the
circumstances, the substituted Vice
president will be a republican. Log
an, Sherman and Edmunds are the
most available candidates, aud we
think, that the choice of the
people naturally falls upon Edmunds,
as the most honorable and temperate
partisan of the three.
A PECULIARITY of the existing civil
service reform is that a vigilant watch
is kept over those who enter govern
ment service and not over those who
are discharged or who will likely have
to leave it. Commissioner Eaton ex
pressed himself the other day in words
like this: "The civil service has two
doors, and ouf business is to watch
only the one, which admits the new
officials; who gets thro wn out of the
other door is none of our business."
IT is said that in all commercial
centres signs of increased business
activity are noted. What we hope
for in this section of country now is,
that such activity may spread to the
remotest parts of the commercial

Ilcndricks, which took place on Tues

The Cost of the Postal Service.
WASHINGTON, November 29.—A. 1).
llazen, Third Assistant Postmaster
General, has submitted to the Post
master General his annual n port for
the year ended Juno 30, 1885. The to
tal postal revenue during the year was
$42,567,843, while the expenditures
were $50,942,415, leaving the excess of
estimated total cost over gi oss receipts
$8,381,571. During October last the
number of letters received for special do
livery at all special delivery offices was
140,820, and the gross income from the
special delivery business during tli3
month was $14,082, while the net reve
nue was $2,828. From information de
rived from the separate reports ot Post
masters Mr. llazen thinks that perhaps
at most of the letter-carrier offices the
special delivery system has been reason
ably successful and,with proper man
agement. is likely to increase; that at
places having a population of less than
20,000 the system has been and proba

Representative Randall could not at
tend the funeral of Vice- President
Hendricks. On Saturday evening he
received a telegram announcing the
sudden death of his near relative, Mr.
George Earp, of Baltimore, and on Sun
day he went oyer to that city to make
the arrangements for the funeral, lie
took the body to Philadelphia on .Mon
day. Mr. Randall and Mr. Earp grew
up together from childhood,"Were part

Fear the Epidemic.
HUNTINGDON. NOV. 29 —The diph
theria, which has prevailed at Saxtou
and the neighboring parts of Hunting-
Jon and Bedford Counties for two
months, causing the closing of schools
and churches,lias been slowly extending
in'this direction and there have been a
number of fatal causes in the rural
districts adjoining this city. 11 is
feared that the disease will become as
epidemic here as at Saxtou.
Have Stopped Fighting-.
LONDON, NOV. 29.—A dispatch from
Belgrade says that'an armistice lx j t w< en
Se.via and Bulgaria was concluded
3.30 yesterday afternoon. Advices
from Sofii state th it the armistice was
only concluded after the Austro-Ilung
arian Minister to Servia had notilnd
Prince Alexander that if the Bu'gai ians
advanced another kilometer Austrian
troops would cross the frontier and
fight the Bulgarians. The /Minister
added that the capture of Pilot had
saved Prince Alexander's military hon
or and assured his reputation. Fifteen
thousand Servian troops are disabled.

Secretary Whitney Makes Clerks
WASHINGTON, NOV. 26.—This day of
thanksgiving, if making others happy
lends to our good cheer, was a joyous
occasion for Secretary Whitney. On
the desk of each employe of the Navy
Department yesterday there was laid a
card reading as follows:

A Black Eagle Captured.
HUNTINGDON, Pa, Nov. 27.—A few
days ago Mv Peter ITelTncr, a farmer
of Juniata township, captured a large
black eagle in a trap prepared express
ly for tho purpose. It is a beautiful
specimen of the American black eagle.
It is thirty-three inches high and meas
ures seven feet and six inches across
its outstretched wings. Mr. HelTner
brought his prize to town to-day and
disposed of it. to Mr. Gilbert Green burg,
the agent of the Philadelphia zoolog

handsome sum. Mr. Greenburg will on

Tho Italians Leaving for tho South.
READING, November 28.—Three
hundred Italian laborers passed
through hero this morning for Charles
ton .South Carolina. They are believed
to be the fiist foreign laborers sent
South ftom Eastern Pennsylvania, and
hundreds are preparing to follow them
to various Southern states. They are
promised $1.25 to $2 per day, and it is
believed that the climate of tho South
will suit them better than that of the
North. The indications are that a
great exodus of Italians, Poles and
Hungarians wiil take place from East
ern Pennsylvania this winter and that
most of them will go South.

NOTICE TO TAXPAYERS.— wiu>rcas there
is a general i pinion prevailing among
the taxpayers throughout the county that l>e
cause a collector's warrant is good for two
years, they have the same length of timo in
which to pay their taxes. Tax Collectors fre
quenty complain to us that many person* make
this a pretext for refusing to pay their taxes
until they are actually forced to do so, and
these being generally such as are b.-st abie to
pay. We therefore submit for votir informa
tion the following Aet of Assembly of April 15,
1834, in relation thereto :
"Every collector shall, within three months
i after receiving the corrected duplicate., pay in
to the hands of the treasurer of the property,
county or township, as the case may ,be, the
whole amount of the taxes charged and assessed
in such duplicate, excepting such sum ies the
Commissioners, or Supervisors and Oyerseers,
as the ease may oe. m their discretion, may ex
houerate him trom, on pain of being answer-
Able tor and charged with the whole balance re
maining so unpaid."
You will readily see by the above Act that tax
collectors are required to pay in the full a
mouiit of their duplicates within three nonths
after the duplicates arc placed in their hands
