WHAT A thorn Jack 'Griest must be
in editor Fiedler's eve ! Last week's
Gazette trots out about three columns
of campaign literature which is all de
voted to the annihilation of Griest.
The funniest part of it is that all the
Gazette may say is taken for what it
is worth and the Democrats will vote
for GRIEST and FIEDLER all the same.
Two weeks from next Tuesday will
be election day and we hope the Dem
ocrats of the county have determined
in their minds to* support the ichole
democratic ticket We see the Re
publican candidates are flitting arouud,
banging on to the button hole of this
and that democrat and trying to show
the advantages (?) that may be de

THE remarks made by Gov. Foraker
at a republican massmeeting held at
Cleveland, Ohio, the other day, were
extremely edifying. He waved the
bloody shirt with a vengeance, de
nounced President Cleveland and the
administration in the meanest terms
tongoecan express, and said he was
going to publish a book about those
rebel flags as soon as be is out of office.
We doubt whether conservative Re
publicans will sanction that kind of
talk any length of time. It is certain

frages for a certain candidate for of
fice it is natural and right for them to
examine the past record of such a
candidate. And when we ask cur
democratic readers to cast their bal
lots for John Noll, for sLeriff, and
James Kimport, for treasurer, we take
pleasure in shoiviDg up the characters
and merits of these two men. The one
a veteran soldier who risked bis life
for his country, the other an excellent
fanner and prominent citizen. Roth
are bard wcrking men, and both arc
active and faithful democrats. Both
are highly esteemed in their respective
communities as honest men and kind
neighbors. If the republican party of
Centre county are able to place their
candidates in a better light, then we'll
take the water. IN the meantime we
urge Democrats to vote for the best
men, NOLL and KIMPORT.
DEMOCRATIC meetings, at which the
issues of this fall's campaign will be
discussed, will be held in different
parts of the county on the foil owing

COOPER, the chairman of the repub
lican state commiltco is evidently get
ting desperate. II" issued an address
to the voters of Pennsylvania, in
which he gets off the enormous lie that
the liquor men have conspired with the
democrats in order to defeat the Re
publican state ticket. Cooper is well
known as a man who for party pur
poses would not shrink to do any
thing, and his object in telling the
people this falsehood about a demo
cratic liquor combination is clearly
understood. That the liquor clement
will vote the democratic ticket on the
Bth of November is plausible, because
a republican legislature has struck a
deadly blow at their interests by the
passage of the high license law. Rut
that the liquor men have united or will
unite with the democratic party ; as
conspirators is an untruth and Cooper
knows it. Cooper hopes to work lots
of mischief in the democratic ranks by
this brazen campaign lie. lie expects
to disgust those democrats who have
nothing in common with the liquor
element, so that they will drop their
party and vote Republican, lie also
hopes to re-enlist Republicans who are
weak and shaky,and are on the verge
of deserting. Stiil we think Cooper's
game will be of no avail. The people
at large keep themselves well enough
informed to torm a sound opinion of
their own and they will sooner believe
facts than such a transparent campaign
THAT something must be doue to re
lieve the people from the grasp of the
telegraph monopolies of this country,
is apparent, says the Patriot. The
time is coming and is eveu now at
hand, when the Western Union com
pany will hold and control, as it wills,
the entire telegraph business of the
The rapid growth of monopolies in
the United States is often commeuted
upon. Companies whose charters
were sold and purchased for a mere
song a few years ago are to-day growu
so great that their influence is felt not
only throughout the length and
breadth of the land, but in other lands
as well. When a monopoly acquires
such strength as this, regard for the
law of the land aud the desires and
wishes of the people have little weight
What the people demand to protect
them from these powerful monopolies
is governmental interference, both ex
ecutive and legislative, the one to en
force and compel obedience to the
laws in existence, and the other to eu
act such additional laws for the re
straint of those growing monsters as
! their increasing arrogance demands.
In the case of the telegraph monop
oly the government should first cause
its laws to be respected and enforced,
before it nnierflie tbe (|ne*tennb)e
task of setting up on its own account
in the telegraph business, with intent
to eompete with a monopoly -which
the government has shown itself un
able to control.
Another Straw That Tells.
From the St. I.ouis Republican.
Said Colonel .Joe Rickey at the Southern
last night : "I asktxl Don Cameron some
' time ago what he thought of Cleveland,
j The only thing that can beat him,' said he,
j 'is some sort ot financial panic which can
tie laid at the doors of the administration.
In such a case he would probably belieaten,
no matter whom we might put against him.
As it stands now, however, I think he is
sure of re-election. He has shown himself
to Ire an honest, iude|>endent and heirless
official, and the predictions that financial
ruin would follow his election have lieeii
disproved." 'Do you,' I :isked, 'talk this
way to members of your own party ?
i 'Why not ?' he answered. 'I have no de
! sire to cheat them or to cheat myself; the
j conditions are plain.
THE editor of the Minneapolis Tribune
has had a lesson that ought to be of value
i to him and to all partisan writers who suf -
' jKise that politics will furnish an excuse for
had manners. He printisl a very coarse
and [offensive article about Mr. and Mrs.
Cleveland just after their visit to Minneap
olis. It was not much worse than some of
the things that Maine pnjiers in the East
have printed aliout the President, hut the
references to Mrs. Cleveland gave the ar
ticle an esjiecial brutality. It rousil the
w hole town and they have been making it
very hot for the Tribune editor. He has
been burnt in effigy ; crowds gather around
his office and hoot him, and the City Coun
cil has passed resolutions condemning the
Tribune and demanding an apology. There
has been 110 threat of violence, but simply a
universal expression of intense disgust and
indignation, all of which is very pleasant
to read about. It shows not merely the
jMipular respect for Mr. and Mrs. Cleveland,
but the respect for manly courtesy that is
characteristic of Americans everywhere.

WASHINGTON, I). C., Oct 18, 1887.
Of the many annual rejKirts now lieing
prepared in the several Federal Depart
ments. perhaps none are of such general in
terest as is that of Commissioner .Sparks, ot
the Genera lLaml Office, which has Just
been submitted to the Secretary of the In
terior and which speaks more than mere
platform platitudes of the sincere desire of
the Democrats to redeem their pledges to re
claim and restore to the people the public
domain of which Republican rapacity and
venality have wrongfully deprived them.
These vast funds are not confined to any
particular locality hut impartially and un
blushiugly penetrate and permeate every

party of the century. .
The report in question shows that since
March 4, 1885, 31,824,481 acres have been re
claimed and thrown open to honest settlers.
The investigation of land entries discloses
the startling result that 2,312 cases covering
"t7u 000 acres were condemned to cancellation
and 1,153 entries, covering about 180,000
ceres were cancelled tor fraud, pure and
simple. Added to this crowded catalogue
of crime—its crowning climax—more than
five thousand cases have been unearthed
wherein perjury or subornation ot perjury
has been committed in land transactions.
The reports of several of the bureau of
ficers—especially those of the Laud Office
and the Pension Office, call for an jucrease

The eiti/eus of the National Capital are
making an earnest effort to have the next
National Democratic Convention meet in
this city. The initiative was taken by the
Columbia Democratic Club in bohait ot
Washington, and the whole city is second

soon be called to consider the undertaking.
Tin* chief obstacle to be overcome is the fact
that the city has no hall large enough to ac
