Manufactories That Should Not be Pro-
Ifthere is any class of persons in
this country who need attention more
than the cranks, who are now over-
running it, it is the crank maker.
Scarcely a Sabbath goes by but some
professed minister of the Gospel, for
the purpose of notoriety, is reported as
giving expression to sentiments, the
only result of which must be to create
cranks and to lessen the respect that
thoughtful people have for the palpit
and those wiio fill it. The Sunday pre-
ceding the attempt on the life of Rus-
SELL SAGE, a New York minister, who
is a member of the Union League, of
that city, preached a sermon in which
Governor HiLL was taken as his text.
After berating him in a manner that
wouid have caused a meeting of politi-
cal heelers to have blushed for their
speaker, he wound up by saying:
“It is not the voice of party or poli-
“tics, but the voice of God speaking
“through the public conscience, that
“demands that he be taken to the
“precipices of the world and flung into
“the abyss of eternity.”
When fools of this calibre are paid
by the people of a community for oc
cupying their pulpits, and are allowed
the free use of dirty and d-magogical-
tongues, why should the country not be
filled with cranks and its citizenz be in
terror of their lives by night and by
It is the crazy unguarded expressioas
of those who are after notoriety ; the
unscrupulous and desperate efforts of
the men who are seeking great wealth
and power, and the teachings and acts
of those who should know beter, that
is having its effect upon the weak
minded of the country, and manufac-
turing cranks out of a class ot people
who have heretofore been barmless,
but “queer.” Itis to these manufac:
tories of cranks, that pablic attention
should be turned. They are more dan-
gerous to the public welfare and the
lives of our people than the cranks
——It iis the people and papers who
have the least knowledze of Tammany
Hall, its objects and the persons and
interests connected with it, who are
fiercest in their denunciation of its in:
fluence ‘and membership. Tammany
Hall is the oldest’political and social
organization in the United States. It
numbers among its members the very
best citizens of New York, and is nei,
as is generally supposed, made up of
the rag-tag-and-bobi-tail of the great
metropolis. It is the high business
and social standing of the men who be-
long t> Tammany that gives it the in-
fluence it possesses, and the individuals
or newspapers who speak of it as a
conglomeration of political heelers and
toughs, simply show their ignorance of
the organization they talk about.
Injuring Their Own Cause.
It is becoming a very evident matter
that the factions, now keeping poor,old
Ireland in a state of tarmoil and trouble
care little for the respect of the outside
world, unless it is just at the time they
are after money to aid them in their
political fights. In the past two years
there has scarcely been a public meet-
ing held or a congregation called to-
gether in that country, that has not
been broken ap in a riot or row, and
the bandaged heads and black eyes
that are to be seen after every puolic
demonstration, is evidence of the fact
that if either faction had the control
of Ireland, the condition of the people
generally woull be worse than it now
is. Partisans and partisan followers,
who cannot meet and talk over their
differences without resorting to the
shillalah or to cobble stones,are notthe
kind of men to pat at the head of any
government. People who cannot con-
trol their own passions are not calcu-
lated to control the actions, or have in
their hands the welfare of others. It
is the divided, discordant and warring
-condition of the Irish people themselves
that is doing more to tighten and con-
‘tinue the British yoke, and to lessen
the sympathy of the outside world for
the oppressions' they have borne for
ages, than all the works of their enemy
It is the Irish politicians now who
are doing their best to keep Ireland
what it is. Every row that is kicked
up and every riat that takes place,
adds years ot bondage to the people '
who imagine they can better their
cause by resorting to brute force.
What is wanted more in Ireland now
than anything else is peace—peace
among her own warring factions.

A Good Many to Contend With.
Judge Furst's road to the Supreme
court bench does not promise to be as
“straight as an arrow or as smooth as,
glass.” Already half the Republican
district Judges in tne State, and a
goodly sprinkling ot lawyers who have
not yet attained the dignity or a judi-
cial offize, have announced themselves
as candidates for the position and the
choice of Centre county Republicans
will be left to **hoe his row,” as best he
can. We are sorry such is the condi-
tion of atfairs. It was our hope that
Judge Furst would have a walk over

take the result of the contest when it
is announced to him.
-—In the way of fat positions Mr.
Kare seems to have struck it pretty
rich when he made the place of
chief clerk of the House at Washing-
ton. With a salary and emoluments
much larger than those belonging to a
Congressman and thirty-five appointees
at salaries ranging from fifteen to thir-
ty-five hundred dollars, the position of
Clerk of the House is one not to be
sneezed at, either for the honor, the
power or the income it bringe. Mr.
Kerr we know will do honor to the
position, and his hosts of friends,
throughout Peunsylvania, congratu-
late him on the nice plum that has
dropped into his hands.
——The decision of Judge BArNARD
of New York, that ballots marked for
the express purpose of knowing that a
bribed voter had fulfilled his bargain,
should be counted, unless bribery was
proven in each individual instance,
may be right as he under«tauds it, but
at this distance one would be compell-
ed to look throngh an exceedingly
strong Republican magnifying glass, to
sze either law, justice or common
sense in such an opinion. In this case
the Judge has traveled a long distance
out of his way, to favor a party that
holds its grip on the legislative depart-
ment of the great Commonwealth of
New York only through the most
villianous frauds and infamous gerry-
mander that ever disgraced any State.
His action will add no credit to the

Suntos—The Advance Loses Sev-
eral Men.
The United States and Brazil Mail
Company's steamship Advance arrived
off Quarautine yesterday morning, and
the Captain reported that two of the
crew had died ot yellow feveron the
‘voyage. The deaths occirred fifieen
days azo, and since then all on board
have been in fine heaith. The steamer
had twenty cabin passengers, one of
whom was Capt. Alexander Rodgers,
the World's Fair Commissioner to
On the certificate of the ship's doc-
tor the officials at Quarantine permitted
the company to transter tae cabin pas-
sengers to the tug Charm, and they
were landed at Roberts Stores, The
ship was fumigated and got up to her
pier lite in the afternoon.
The yellow tever victims were Wil-
liam B. Thomas, the ship's carpeuter,
who died on Nov. 17, and O. Hl. Nel-
son, the quartermaster, who died on
Nov. 29. The Advance left Santos
Nov. 10, Rio Nov. 15, and Bahia, Nov.
21. The fever broke out among tue
crew at Rio, and in the short sail to
Cahiat spread with great rapidity. At
Bahia it was necessary to send seven
of the sailors ashore to a hospital, and
the ship was quarantined for tour days
and fumigated.
There was hardly a boat in the har-
bor at the time that did not have cases
of the tever aboard, and it was reported |
that on land the poorer people were |
suffering frighttully from the fever.
From Bahia the Advance

Halt the crew were down, aud tae ota-
bali were hardly fit to work. The
most stringent measures were taken by
the doctor, and when Para was reach-
ed, on Dec. 1. the fever had eutirely
disappeared Dr. Randall, the ship's
surgeon said.
Since we left Para we have all been

state as it was when we came away.

ship Weiser She had just come from
Santos, and everybody aboard was
sick,” :
Capt. Rodgers of the World's Fair
Commission did not altogether agree
with Dr. Randall. He said that when
he left Braz: the affairs of that coun-
try were uot so bad as reported. The
health of Rio was improving because
of recent and heavy rains. The mor-
tality at Santos was frighttal, He said,
and death was everywhere. Ships
were lying in the harbor and crews
were dying by hundreds. The people
had ditficulty in caring for the dead.
Tried to Kill a Priest.
Would-be Assassins Enter His Hone at
Night and Shoot at Him.
HoLLIDAYSBURG, Pa., Dec. 13.
An attempt to murder Rev. Father
John Heine, of St. Michael’s Roman
Catholic Church, last night has aroused
the people of this vicinity, who are
making great efforts to locate the would-
be assassins.
Two murderous robbers pried open a
window of the residence leading into the
kitchen late at night They crawled
through very quietly, felt about for the
door leading up-stairs where the priest
was sleeping, and mounted the stairs.
Each carried a revolver in his hand.
Father Hzine was disturbed from his
sleep by a click of the door latch, arose
and waiked into the hall. Quicker than
a flask the burglars each fired a shot at
him and fled. The priest was unharm-
ed, but was so dazed by the astounding
reception he met that it was a few min-
utes before he could give an intelligible
So far officers have failed to get track
of the villains, whose object in killing
the priest cannot be imagined unless it
was to punish him for interfering with
their plundering his house.

Cathedral in this city by Cardinal Gib-
pons. Heis Charles R. Uncles. Anoth-
er colored priest has been laboring for

Bitten by a Mad Cat.
It Attacks and Injures Five Persons.
Five persons were bitten on the
hands, on Friday last,by a rabid cat, in
Newark, and the bitten persons will
come to this city to-morrow to be treat-
ed at the Pasteur Institute.
The cat was a big black f'om belong-
ing to Mrs, Josephine Geiger, of No.
49 Lewis Street. It attacked her on
Friday morning and lacerated her fin-
gers. Then it ran about the house at-
tacking everybody in sight, springing
at their faces and biting the hands
thrust ont to repel it.
The other persons bitten there were
Rudolph Klingel, aged 12, Frank
Brohm, aged 28, and Rudolph Brohm,
aged 20.
After biting them the cat escaped in-
to the street and sprang upon and bit
Mrs. Wagner, of 22 Fairview avenue.
Mrs. Wagner is 60 years old and she
was thrown into hysterics by the at-
tack of the cat.
The frenzied animal ran about the
streets for several hours and may have
bitten other persons, but no other cases
have been reported.
It returned to Mrs. Geiger's house,
and was locked in a room until veter- |
inary surgeon LR. Sattler came and
caught it on Saturday morning and
n iled it up in a barrel.
Dr. Sattler has had considerable ex-
perience with rabid animals. He took
the cat to his hospital, on Boyd street,
and kept in a cage. It developed all
the symptoms of rabies, and died of the
disease this morning.
A post mortem examination of the
cat was made by Dr. Sattler, assisted
by Dr. Charles F. J. Lehlbach, Jr. the
Health Officer of Newark. The brain
and spinal cord + ere taken and rabbits
will be innoculated with them. A
number of other doctors studied the
cat, before and after its death, and
agreed that t had rabies.
Dr. Frederick W, Becker cauterized
the wounds of the bitten persons, but
‘they a.e not gotisfied with this treat-
ment, and will go to Dr. Gibier to be
innocnlstod with attenated virus by
the Pasteur method.
How the Chilian Dictator Died.
Fort TownNseNnDp, Wash., Dec. 14.—
J. Perkins Shanks, an American en-
gineer, who for the last twenty-two
years has lived in Chili, and who arriv-
ed here a few days ago, tells the tollow-
ing story ot how Balmaceda was be-
trayed :
“Balmaceda was betrayed by the Ar-
gentine Minister, Senor Uribirru, in
Santiago. When Balmaceda sent his
Minister to request Senor Uribirru to
shelter him against the attack of insur-
gents it was agreed that Balmaceda
should arrive at the Argentine Legation
at 4 o'clock in the morning. When he
arrived he was net by Seffor Unribirru,
and on entering he met, face to face, the
wife of his most bitter enemy, Mrs. Car-
los Walker Martinez, who bad taken re-
fuge in the same legation, fearing an at-
tempt on her life on the part of Balma-
ceda’s adherents.
Great confusion followed the meeting,
and Mrs. Martinez was compelled to
take a solemn oath not to divulge the
whereabouts of Balmaceda. But she
entered into a conspiracy with the Ar-
gentine Minister to betray Balmaceda
to Joege Montt, Word was sent noti-
fying Montt of Balmaceda’s hiding
place. Montt immediately took steps to
induce the ex-Dictator to surrender him-
self peacefully to the newly constituted
authorities, promising every guarantee
of a fair trial. Balmaceda agreed to
surrender during the holidays. From
the day Balmaceda received the first
word from Montt he began to prepare
for death, and wrote instructions dispos-
ing of all his personal effects; and when
the time arrived for him to surrender be
killed himself, knowing he would be put
to death unless he took his own life.”

to the volcano of Colima will share the
fate of Pompeii, and has theretore ord

umes of lava, ashes, and smoke, and

trial at Williamsport on Monday last.
The defendant was not in’ court, being
absent from the city, and after the jury
was sworn, C. LaRue Munson, Esq.,
for the plaintiff, offered a note in evi-
dence. There was no defense and the
Judge remarked that there should be

favor of the plaintiff, and the whole
business did not last a minute.

A New Harp CoaL RErcroN.—A
discovery that will surprise Geologists,
has been made recently on the farm of
Mr. Geo. Miller, near Abbottstown,
Adams county, by Mr. Henry Gentzel
of this place. [tis nothing less than a
large body of anthracite coal. Mr.
Gentzel hada sample of it with him,
in Bellefonte on Tuesday last, and with
the single exception that it lacks that
brilliant black color that characterizes
the hard coal of Northeastern Pennsyl-
vania, it could not be distinguished from
it. Mr. Gentzel says the vein is about
three feet thick and grows thicker and
batter as it gets into the hill.
Well, if this thing keeps on there is
no telling but we will all be anthracite
kings, or getoir hard coal for nothing.
We had just finishel writing the above
item about the find of a bed of coal at
Abbottstown, in Adams county, when
on opening the Lock Haven Express
we rua across the following :
“The people of Dunnstown, and in
fact all the citizens and especially the
land owners in and about the village,
are excited over the discovery of a vein
of what is said to be anthracite coal near
that place. The discovery was made
by the quarrymen who are quarrying
stonu for filling at the chute. The loca-
tion of the supposed coal mine is about
one and a half miles from the court
house, and about midway between
Dunnstown and Liberty. On Saturday
last the quarrymen with their blasting
threw out a vast body of rock and open-
ed up a vein of black substance which
they believed to be coal. Several par-
ties from the city went over to Dunns-
town and obtained specimens of the sub-
stance. It looks like a fine quality of
anthracite coal, is very bright and glossy
and when a sample was placed under
the blow pipe it burned readily and is
undoubtedly coal. A miner who has
worked in the anthracite mines near
Shamokin examined the specimens and
pronounced them an excellent quality
of coal. Further prospecting will be
necessary to determine whether there is
a large body of the substance and ar-
rangements for doing so will likely be
made within the next few days. The
coal is on the land of farmer Joseph
