WITII this number the JOURNAL
completes the 6ixty-first year of its
existence and if the present condition
of the plant may be taken as a guide
its future stability is good for quite a
number of years to come. It required
hard work and a considerable amount
of cash to get the paper up to a fair
standard, but we think we have in a
measure succeeded, and our labors do
not seem to be in vain True,the tem
porary reverses incident totLe news
paper business, along with the sharp
and plenteous competition, have
caused us much worry and vexation,
but we managed to get through it all
and have the gratifying reward of an
increased subscription list and the kind
encouragement of our patrons. To them
and to all others the JOURNAL sends
its compliment or the season.
While it is not necessary here tore
peat the history of the JOURNAL, hav
ing done so on similar
fore, we would say that ever since we
took a hold of the paper, nearly five
years ago, we labored honestly and
persistently to make it as interesting
and useful as we knew how with the
menns at hand, and we have the satis
faction of knowing that we succeeded
to a large exteut. The JOURNAL has
many warm sriends and if kind Provi
dence favors us with continued health,
we expect to increase* their number
during the coming year by giving our
readers fully as good, if not a better

In recapitulating our journalistic ex
periences of the year ISS7 we are
forcibly reminded that we owe special

vices added much to the success of this

with tteir newsy contributions. With
these few retrospective remarks we
bid good bye to 1887 and are ready

SENATOR QUAY has introduced a bill
to increase the pensions of soldiers and
sailors of the late war who were total
ly disabled,from SSO to $72 per month.
THE granger's convention which
was held in Harrisburg last week, is
said to haye been the largest in point
of number that has been held during
the past ten years. Some important
measures were introduced relative to
tariff reduction on agriculturalproducts.
JAMES G. BLAJXE is thought to be
at the bottom of the convention of re
publican clubs, representing every
state of the Union, which was held in
New York last week. The object of
the meeting was to organize for pre
paratory work in the coming presiden
tial campaign aud to make united ef
forts for the renomination of Blaine at
the national convention to come off at
Chicago next June. The general tone
of the convention was Blaine, first,last
and all the time, and this gives rise to
the supposition that the meeting of the
clubs was called 'at the instance of
Blaine himself. A platform was a
dopted which, in keeping with Blaine's
sentiments, favors high protection and
unlimited pension grants ; stirs up the
flag scandal and also waves the bloody
shirt. Such are the tactics to be em
ployed by the man from Maine and
his faithfal the coming
battle for the presidency. It is a <
fortunate thing that the people have a
* voice in the matter when they go to
the polls.
THE two bills which have been in
troduced in Senate purposing to re
strict immigration staud an uncertain
change in their single handedness.
Senator Morrill, of Vermont proposes
to keep out paupers, lunatics and an
arehksts by requiring the consuls on
the other side to investigate into the
character and means of livelihood of
emigrants and if found wanting to re
fuse tbem a certificate of admission to
our ports. But who wouldn't be a
CODSUI with such a trying burden ? 1
Senator Reagan, of Texas, in his bill,
would throw theresponsibiltv of bring
ing offensive foreigners to American
ports upon the steamship companies by
compelling them to give bonds that
jthe immigrants are all 0. K. in politi
cal and other respects. But this plan
would have a dampening effect upon
steamship traffic and most of the com
panies would feel like going out of the
business. Some law will have to be
framed to prevent the immigration of
foreign social offal, but neither of the
ahoye bills seems to exactly cover the
~• ground.

Expelling Anarchists.
Everybody but the Anarchists themselv
es will agree with Congressman Adams, of
Illinois, that the Anarchists are a pestilent
lot of which if the country wore well rid it
would bo exceedingly fortunate. Hut there
are a good many jroople who will regard
Mr. Adams' scheme for getting rid of them
as rather more dangerous than the An
archists themselves. Mr. Adams proposes
to give the President, the power to expel
these undesirable aliens when in bis judg
ment the public interests demand it. This
seems an easy way of disposing of the Mosts
and Schwabs, hut the trouble is that it
places in the hands of the President a ]ww
or that some time might be wielded for per
sonal rather than public ends.
It is natural that Congressman Adams,
who represents a State in which the
lent Anarchists have made themselves
lartienhvrly obnoxious, should desire a
simple and easy | way of settling the An
archist question, lint this is a country ot
lawful methods, in which men who are
criminals must be punished by legal pr>-
eesses. The legal method is a little slow,
hut it generally gets there in time. The
Illinois Court managed to dispose of some
recent Anarchists in a very effective way,
if the process was a trifle long winded.
They can hang more Anareliistsif any more
evince a desire to try conclusions with the
It might not be a bad notion to banish
some of the windy advocates ot anarchy,
hut if this is done the law authorising it
should make the courts the sole arbiters in
the matter. The power should not be lodged
in the executive of the nation except on a
clear finding by a jury after a fair trial that
the accused was, in word or act, hostile to
the American Government. Hotter than
this, however, will IH an effective measure
to keep these enemies of all government
j from landing on our shores in the future
, leaving the courts to deal with those al
| ready here. — Hi it a Times.

WASHINGTON, I>. L\, L>ee. IP. PS7.
Congress, although in session two weeks,
has as yet accomplished very little work,
mainly for the reason that Speaker Carlisle,
owing to the unusual pressure brought to
bear upon biin lor choice committee places,
has been obliged to defer the appointment
of his cuiuiuittes until after the holiday re
cess, which will be from Dec. 22 till .Jan. 4.
The only really important committee thus
far organized is that on Elections, which,
I for reasons personal to himself Mr. Carlisle
. request eel the House to appoint, one of its
| duties being to decide the issue between
Carlisle and Tholo. Apparently there is Jno
1 good cause for a contest, still as one has been
instituted by the missguided labor reformer,
so called, it must l>e disnosed of according
to the forms of law There can be little
doubt of the validity of the Kentucky
statesman's claim to his seat.
It is already evident that mueh of the
time of Congress during the present session
will be uselessly consumed in the discussion
of purely political questions ; baton the eve
of what is destined to be one of the most ex
citing and closely contested Presidential
campaigns in the country's history, this is,
perhaps, unavoidable. The tirst political
tirade was delivered, witlout the slightest
provocation, in the House by the Republi
can leader, Mr. Reed, of Maine, 'being a
' rather feeble aud flatulent arraignment of the
j Democracy on the tariff question. However
! a few ringing sentences from Messrs Cox,
| and Hatch sufficed to effectually silence the
batteries of the burly Boanerges of the Re
j publican party.
In the Senate that notorious champion
of fraud and vote stealer, "Bill" Chandler,
i has presented an indictment against four
sovereign States—South Carolina, Florida,
Mississippi and Louisiana—proposing to
regulate their Congressional elections,
through the medium of Federal interven
tion. Chandler's idea of regulating dec-
I tions was exemplified by the Republican
j rape of electoral votes of three of these same
States in the canvass of 1870-77, and Bill
realizes that the support of these common
alities is necessary for Republican success
next year. But Chandler will get nothing
but a little cheap political capital out of his
partisan resolution.
Probably the Senate bill tliat will excite
the most interest and discussion is that of
Senator Cullom, providing for the United
States Postal Telegraph, appropriating four
million dollars for that purpose aud desig
nating a number of principal cities of
the country to be connected by the proposed
liues ; it also provides for the appointment
and regulations of the employes of the Postal
The in dications are that there is some
oppoiv'qon to the ccuflruiation of Mr. La
mar'* nomination, but not enough to defeat
it. It is hardly probable that the matter
will lie taken up until after the holiday re
cess ; then the three most iuqioriaut nomin
ations will be acted ujion in their regular
order—Lamar, Vilas and Dickinson,
The recent reception in this city of two
distinguished Irish members of the
Parliament, was an impressivedemonstration
of American uatn*.aj smypathy for the suf
ferings of Ireland,and tit ting oppression was
given to this feeling by the eloquent y t^er
auce* of several prominent Congressmen.
