The County Auditors’ Report.
Our readers will doubtless be inter-
ested in the Auditors’ report of the fi-
nancial condition of this county, which
is published in this issue of the
WarcHyaN. It is the work of careful
officers and competent accountants,
and if it shows a state of county fi.
nances unsatisfactory to the people, it
is not their fault. They give the fig-
ures and the facts as they found them.
They unquestionably would have pre-
ferred to furnish an exhibit of better
financial management it they could
‘have done so.
The first inquiry that will be drawn
from the curious reader upon perusing
this report, will be, whathas become
«of the Surplus? Where, oh, where is
the handseme balance of over thirty
thousand dollars in cash and available
assets, which the last report of Demo-.
cratic county management showed to |
‘have been in favor of the county ? Three
years of Republican management ap-
pears tokave dissipated it as the fog is
‘scattered by the wind.
But'ia the place of that Democratic
balanee we find a shortage of $5267.63
asshown by the report of this year.
There appears to have beea uousu.
ally bad financiering in the last year of
‘the Republican county administration,
although it wae bad enough all
through. In the Auditors’ report of one
year ago it was claimed that the coun-
‘ty -had a balance in its favor te the
amount of about $23,600. Now the
balance is on the other side of the ledg-
.er—against the county—to the amount
of $5,267.63, showing a sudden ard un-
.explained evaporation of nearly $30,
-000—a shrinkage, to that amount, of
the county’s cash and available assets.
“This is a good illustration of how a 2
mill tax got away with an alleged bal-
ance - of $23,000, and put in its place a
debt of nearly: $6000 in a year’s time.
There are some peculiar features of
the report we print in this issue which
we can’t refrain from calling attention
‘to. Inthe Bridge Account such items
as the following will be found : Miles-
burg bridge, Pittsburg bridge company,
balance on superstructure, $936.68 ;
Pine Creek bridge Pitsburg bridge
company, balance on superstructure,
$190.21; Karthaus bridge, Pittsburg
bridge company, balance of Cen-
tre county’s half of superstructure,
$6402, together with otherexpenses on
that bridge amounting to $534.85;
Moshannon bridge, Pittsburg bridge
company, balance of Centre county's
‘half of superstructure, $1483.58 ; How.
_ard dam bridge, Pittsburg bridge com-
pany, balance on superstructure,
These expenses, amounting altogeth-
cer to $11,297.43, belonged to 1889, as
stated in this Auditors’ report. But
‘they were purposely omitted from the
‘report of that year. The Repnblican
commissioners wanted to wake as
good a showing as possible, with the
object of affecting the next election, and
they deceived the people by omitting
from the report for 1889 the large
amount of over $11,000. But murder
‘will out, and the deception confronts
the deccivers in the report for 1890. It
was by such practices they made it
look asif there was a balance of $23,
«000 last year in favor of the county.
With the same object of deception three
charges of HENDERSON'S amounting to
$90, made in 1889, and for which he got
‘the money, were kept out of last year's
report and appear in this year's audit.
Another peculiar feature of the re-
port we publish this week 1s the large
amount of tewnship funds used for the
payment of county orders. This irregu-
Jar anc unlawful disbursement is
shown to hawe amounted in the last
year to $7,663.09, in clear violation of
the statute which makes such misap-
plication of township money puuish-
able fine and imprisonment.
This use of township fands contrary to
law showed how eompletely a Repub-
lican administration had depleted the
county treasury. Further comment is
—The Governor uses his veto with
strict impartiality, He not only puts his
foot down on a resolution that favors
the intrusion of the military at the polls,
but also knocks out a bill to print 10,-
000 copies of his inaugural address. He
doesn’t believe in putting the State to
the expense of printing what everybody
has the opportunity of reading in the
--A poll of the Arkansas Legislature

Death of an Excellent Citizen.
We regret to hear of the death of
GORGE Jacoss, Esq., a prominent law-
yer and Democratic leader of the Ju-
uiata Valley, which occurred at the
Grand Hotel, Harrisburg, last Sunday
morning. He wen® to the State capi-
tal on business where he was taken
with an attack of pneumonia which
tersinated fatally after nearly a week's
illness. The surprise of thisannounce-
ment will be equal to its painfulness to
those who remember seeing him at the
recent fureral of Hon. A. H. Dur,
where he represented the Juniata
county bar and paid a glowing tribute
to the worth of his deceased friend and
fellow Democrat. Subsequently at
the inauguration of Governor PATTISON
he exposed himself to the effect of
inclement weather which may have
had its influence in bringing on his fa-
tal illness. His age was about 42.
He was a man of a high order of char-
acter and ability. Able, earnest, hon-
est and genial, he had the highest es-
teem of all who knew hith. In his
death his family have sustained an
irreparable loss, and the community in
which he lived and the State have
been deprived of an excellent citizen.
Congressional Apportionment.
The congressional apportionment
bill has passed both houses of congress
and has gone to the President for his
signature. It 1s based upon the recent
census and makes the House of Repre-
sentatives consist of 380 members, an
increase of 24, and raises the elector-
al college to 444. It gives Pennsylva-
nia two more congressmen, increasing
her delegation from 28 to 30. It is al-
ready proposed by the State Republi
can managers to give one of these two
additional congressmen to Philadelphia
by raising the representation of that
city from five to six representatives,
with the intention also of wiping out
the Democratic district so long repre-
sented by Mr. Ranparn. Fortu-
nately there is a Democratic Governor
to interpose his veto to any unfair ap:
—— Governor ParmisoN paid a mer-
ited compliment in making Mr. O. E.
McCrLeLLAN, the popular Superintend-
ent of the middle division of the Pern-
sylvaunia railroad, one of his aids with
the military title of Colonel. In doing
this the Governor recognized a good
Democrat and a relative of the great
Democratic soldier, General GeorGe B.
A Capable Leader.
The St. Louis Globe- Democrat, the
leading Republican paper of the Missis-
sippi Valley, with great truth remarks :
“ The Democrats of the senate have
“out-generaled the Republicans all
“ through the present session, simply
“ because the force bill fanatics have
“put their party in a weak and dis-
« creditable position.”
Well, probably this, to a great ex-
tent, was one of the causes that led to
their discomfiture, as it placed them in
a false and weak position, but the lead
ing cause of their defeat is to be found
in the superior generalship by which
the movements of the Democrats were
led. As a tactician, as well as the
master of the critical points of debate,
Senator GorMaN, who was the leader
cal usurpation and military oppres-
gion, has shown himself to be possess-
ed af extraordinary ability and re-
sources, coming out of the force bill
fizht with the highest honors. The en-
emy doubtless had a vulnerable posi-
tion, with the sentiment of the country
against them, but their defeat is more
to be attributed to the fortunate cir-
cumstance of their opponents having a
leader of unusual capacity.
Cuauncey F. Brack, writing from
Washington to the {New York World,
speaks in the following high terms of
Senator Goryan's: leadership in this
great contest for political freedom :
From first to last there was not a single
break or misstep. From the beginning of the
session to the unexpected andgbrilliant triump
of Monday Mr. Gorman committed no single
error and incurred not a word of adverse crit
icism from any quarter.
There is absolutely no parallel to this case in
the history of England or America—a man
leading in a struggle vital to the liberties and |
interests of the people, involving, possibly, the
very existence of a political party, the struggle
extending through several weeks with varying
fortunes and chances, and this man trusted
and commended with absolute unanimity at
every turn, and accorded the full measure of
credit for his conduct at the end without a sol-
itary dissentirg voice! Not GrApsToNE nor
Papvenn in Great Britain; not even RANDALL
in the great conflict of the Forty-third congress
and certainly not any one of the Democratic
leaders since in the house of representatives,
has contributed a page so fair and undisputed
to the annals of English-speaking freemen.
This is high praise, indeed, but it is
fully deserved.

Death of Secretary Windom.
Secretary of the Treasury Winpvox
died suddenly last Friday night in
New York while at a dinner given by
of the Democratic Senators in their pa- |
triotic fight against a scheme of politi- |
tion at Delmonico’s in that city. He
had just concluded a speech in which
he advanced his views in regard to im-
portant financial questions, when, al
most immediately after taking his seat,
he was overcome by an effection of the
heart and died in a few minutes. So
sudden a visitation struck the assem-
bled guests with consternation and the
banquet was immediately bronght to a

Two weeks ago the Centre Hall
Reporter, intending to place him in a
false position before the public, alleged
that Hon. LgoNarp RuoNE was an
or Parrison's administration. We do
not know that there would be any dis-
grace in any one seeking a position
under an administration that promises
to be as fair and popular as the
one just starting, but we do know
that Mr. RHoNE neither solicited nor
sought a place for himself. His efforts
to secure the nomination and election
of Governor ParrisoN were made, not
in the interest of office, but in the in-
terest of tax reform, and if the editor
of the Reporter would do as Mr.
Ruoxe did, in this matter—forget self,
in the interest of his party and the pub-
lic, there would be a different feeling

Borough Election.
It should be the interest of all the taxpayers
in this Borough to call a meeting of the citi-
zens and to organize for the purpose of placing
in nomination candidates for the different of-
fices in this Borough who will faithfully dis-
charg the duties of their offices, Itis true we
have some good men in office, but they are
few and far between. We should nominate
and elect competent men to the town council
for the reason that they have the power to
make contracts for the borough and spend
the money, and for the same reason we should
nominate and elect competent men to the
school boaad. They have the power to make
contracts and spend the money. There
should not be more than one Overseer acting
in this Borough. It is an outrage upon the
taxpayers of this Borough to be compelled to
keep up the expenses of two overseers. If two
Overseers continue to act the result will be
that the Overseers will be compelled to levy 9
mills next year to pay past indebtness and
the running expenses. during the year.
will faithfully discharge the duties regardless
of politics, be he a Democrat or Republican,
and who will do what Overseers did in the
past when 5 mills paid the running expenses
and past indebtness.
We should consider well who we nominate
and elect for taxcolleeter. He holds the finan-
cial power all within himself. He deals out
this Borough, to the overseers, school board
and town council. If he does not collect and
pay over, the financial wheels of this borough
will stop running. The question that now pre-
gents itself to the taxpayers of the borough, is
a collector? No, he will not. He has already

two thirds of the taxpayers have not yet been
notified of their taxes. Taxpayers are moving
away from town. They do not know whether
they owe him taxes or not. What will be the
result of this is easy to explain. The millage
will be increased and the taxpayers that do
pay will be compelled to bear the burden of
the increase taxes. We should nominate and
elect a man to this office who will faithfully
and honestly discharge the duties of this of-
fice, He is at the head of the financial foun-
tain of this Borough. He should be a man of
good judgment, and a good financier. The
present collector is lacking in all the requisit
| that are required to make a good collector. We

The following is a minute from Pomona

WHEREAS, a certain newspaper claiming re-
i sponsibility and honor, is constant'y and per-
! sistently publishing low personal attacks upon

intended to lessen his influence in the Order
and bring reproach upon him as a citizen,
Therefore, Resolved,
1st. That our confidence in the honor, in-
tegrity and usefulness of Worthy Master
Rhone is undiminished.
2nd. That we recognize him as a heroic and
successful leader of our organization.
3rd. That we denounce the attack made up-
on our Worthy Master as ungentlemanly,
wanton and outrageous, and deserving of the
severest condemnation.
4th. That we deem it but right and proper
that patrons should “boycott” the paper that
sinks the dignity of a respectable public jour-
nal and perverts the higlr pxivileges of a jour-

Miss Kate M. Zimmerman has returned
home after a pleasant week’s visit with her
brothers at Curtin’s. She reports a very enloy-
able time.
Mr. Henry Dunkle, of Lock Haven, former-
ly of Walker township, has made s short
| visit with his son, J. T. Dunkle, and other re-
! latives of this place.
John N. Deitrich, who had been at work in
| Bellefonte, took ill very suddenly; he is at
| the present writing with his brother Henry of
this place and is rapidly convalescing.
Mr. Frank Garbrick, one of our esteemed
citizens, is very ill at this writing, We sincere-
| 1y wish him speedy recovery.
| It is quite interesting, indeed, to hear our
| two brave soldiers, Messrs Wm. Cronoble, of
this place, and Wm. Gnipe, of Michigan, relate
their adventures on the battlefield. They de-
serve much credit for their bravery and should
receive our highest honors for their nobility
and love manifested to this glorious country.
We have some “get up” about us here
too, as well as other places. Shuman Zimmer- |
man says he gets up bright and early every
morning, and out he goes for a fox chase on |
| his Canadian, with two favorite canines, Ring |
and Spring. He is, oh, so very successful; his |
| latest game being that of rheumatism, but
still he seeks his prey with the deadly weapon,
a new Winchester, as you may suppose.
Public Grange meetings will be held at Zion
Feb. 10th, 1891, at 10 a. m., also at Hublersburg |
at 2 p. m., of seme day. Hon. Leonard Rhone, |
State Master, and St:te Lecturer Ailman, and |
others, will be present to address the meeting. |
The oyster banquet which was recently sery-
ed atthe home of our muc'. esteemed friend, !
Lewis 8. Zimmerman, was altogether a social |
and pleasant affair. Oysters, cakes, bananas
and other delicacies were in abundance and
not till after twenty-five guests had their inner
man fally satisfied did the table cease its
groaning caused by these palatable delicacies.
P. S. Hockman takes the prize as the cha mp-
ion oyster eater. The participants return their
¢incere thanks to Mr. Zimmerman and family
for the kind hospitable manner in which they
were entertained.

describes “How the Mails are Carried,” in an |

deftness of touch and perfection of choice
which is so characteristic of her sketches of
the character and actions of Hon. L. Rhone, !
New England character, whether the person-
ages be children or adults. We would call at
tention, also, to Mr. Davies's illustrations, be
cause of their careful adherence to the types
of the time and place. “A Little Girl's Diary
in the East,” by Lucy Morris Ellsworth, is de-
lightful reading, apart from its conscious and
unconscious humor. The verse of the num-
ber includes poems by Louise Chandler Moul-
ton, Mary E. Wilkins, and a most amusing one
by Oliver Herford, whose verse and pictures
strive equally for superiority. Besides, there
are uninventoried riches in the pictures and
departments, enough ta rank the number with
