The Republican County Ticket.
We don’t know just why the Repab-
licans made the county ticket they did.
In fact we doubt it those who made it
could give a satisfactory reason to them-
selves for their nominations on Tues
day. Without doubt they are respecta-
ble citizens. But it is a ticket that fails
to represent the sentiments of the par-
ty ; that is almost worthless when it
comes to work ; that is badly located
and that it will grow weaker every day
until the election turns it down under
an adverse majority that will literally
blot out the Republican party in. Cen-
tre county. :
Mr. Av. Dare who heads the ticket
is a resident of this place who has had
his shingle out ag a practicing attorney
for about fifteen years—we doubt if
the records’ would show that he ever
tried a cage in court. Personally he is
a clever gentleman, and a good citizen,
and has a large and respectable Repub-
lican relationship throughout the coun-
ty, nearly all of whom, with himself,’
have kicked like steers at times when
their party ticket did not suit their pe-
culiar views.” Most of his time, Mr.
DALE puts in complaining of dyspepsia
and the balance of it is occupied in tell-
ing what a political rascal General
HasriNes has always been. If elec!
ted he would represent the the wishes
of the Republican lawyers about Belle:
fonte, and do as the Republican bosses |
told him, oar Ni
The other candidate for legislature
is Mr. Jonny HAMILTON, for years busi-
ness manager up at the State College.
Of later years he has kind of retired |
from active duties and lives quietly and
pleasantly in one of the prettiest homes
in the county, near the College. He is
a gentleman of high character, but of
cranky notions on all kinds of subjects,
legislation that would prevent any poor
man or tenant farmers from either rais-
ing or owning a cow. While he is an
intelligent citizen, he is not the kind of
a representative the people of this coun-
ty want at Harrisburg.
Their candidate for Prothonotary,
Mr. Joux C. MILLER, is like Mr. DALE,
a resident of Bellefonte. Some years
ago he moved from Huntingdon coun-
ty and has since coming to this place
devoted his time to book-keeping. He
is a gentleman of excellent character
and would possibly make a reasonably
good prothonotary if elected. He has
always been an unrelenting, uncom-
promising Republican, and as such
must look to his party friends for the
support he expects to 1eceive. The
Democrats of the county owe him noth-
ing and that is about what he will get
from them when the election takes
No attorney in Bellefonte would ac-
cept a nomination for district attorney,
against Mr. SINGER, and the honor of
being overwhelmingly defeated was
conferred upon Mr. Gro. W. ZEIGLER
of Philipsburg. We don’t know much
about Mr. ZeicLEr. He hasshown up
but little as a practicing attorney, and
we doubt if in nominating him, his par-
ty had any idea of making any fight
for his election.
For Judge, Mr. Samuer T. Gray, a
very respectable farmer, and worthy
citizen of Patton, was put upoa the tick-
et, and for county surveyor, Mr. CLEA-
VER, a quiet unprogressive gentle
man of Unionville, was named. Nei-
ther ot these men have any special
strength nor will they add a single vote
to the ticket, the tail end of which they
are supposed to ornament.
Just what reason Repnblicans will
give why any Democrat should vote for
any of these candidates we are anx ious
to see. While they are all men of good
character and ordinary ability, there
is not one among them, the least par-
ticle better, in any way, than is his
Democratic competitor. They repre-
sent the ideas of the Republican party.
They are now and always have been
the opponents of Democratic principles
and Democratic men. They are enti-
tled to no consideration atthe hands
of the Democracy and they will receive
As the WaTeHMAN goes to press this
week the executive committee of the
Colored Democratic State League is
holding a session in Reading to fix the
time of meeting of their annual conven-
tion. The boom that the late elections
in the South, at which the colored vote
was so largely cast for the Democratic
ticket, has given to colored Democrat-
ic organizations throughout the North,
leads the men at the head of the State
Lesgue to hope that herein Pennsyl-
vania, colored Democratic clubs will
become as numerous and popular as
elsewhere, and that hereafter the col-
ored vote of the State will not beat the
command of the Republican party
without recognition or even the thanks
of the men who have controlled it for
years, It is about time that the col-
ored voter was discovering that his
ballot counted just as much as that
as he elavishly follows the dictum of
Republican leaders, just so long will
that party consider him its special
property, to use as its needs require, un-
til election times and after that cast
him aside as amonuting to nothing un -
til the next campaign. The organiza-
tion and prosperity of colored Demo-
cratic Clubs is a good sign for the col-
ored people of the entire country. They
show that political,as well as personal,
slavery is dead, and that the colored
man intends to think and vote for him-

The Democratic Congressional Con-
The Democratic Congressional Con-
ference for this district met in Ridge-
way on Tuesday last. We have not
been furnished with the official pro.
ceedings as yet, but learn throngh con-
ferees who returned about the time the
WarcamaN was ready for the press,
that everything passed off harmonious-
ly and that Hon. Gro. F. Kriss of
Clarion was nominated on the third bal-
When the conferees first met it was
discovered that considerable difterence
of opinion as to the represeniation each
county should have existed. Centre
claiming 10 delegates and Clearfield 13
under the new plan, as recommended
by these connties, while Elk, Clarion |
and Forest insisted on the old conferee
system, of three representatives from
Two conferences were organized, but
no attempt to nominate a candidate was
made in either of them, until after an
agreement was reached by Clarion ac-
cepting the same basis of representa-
tion that Centre and Clearfield asked.
When this was settled the conference
organized by this and Clearfield county,
dissolved, and the delegates were ad-
mitted to the conference of the other
counties. Representation was then
agreed upon as follows; Clearfield 13 ;
Centre 10; Clarion 8; Forest 2; and
Elk 5; Elk,however, refused to accept
the increased number and remained in
the Conference with but 3 votes. The
balloting for nominations resulted as

The second ballot was the same ex-

and voted for Mr. Kriss. On the
third ballot four of Clearfield’s confer-
ees and four of Centre’s—Messrs. Weber,

It is Working that Way.
Mr. WeeB of the New York
Central, like Mr. Frick of the CArNE-
GIE company, says there is nothing to
arbitrate between his company and the
striking switchmen, and that all that
it asks is “protection in carrying on its
business as it pleases.” This is about
all that the most radical anarchist
could desire or wish—protection in do-
ing as he pleased. It would be a fine
country we would have if this princi-
ple was enforced, aud every fellow who
has alittle money, and whose greed or
crankiness, or crookedness in conduct-
ing his business, created trouble, was
furnished with an army to stand at his
back, until he starved-out or subdued
those he would neither confer with,
nor allow their differences to be consid-
ered by a board of arbitrators. And
vet this is about what Republican
teaching and Republican practice is
Afraid of Results.
It don’t look as if they were loaded
down with hope of carrying their states
when JERRY Rusk refuses to be a can-
didate for governor in Wisconsin, and
Steve ELkins declines a nomination,
for the same position, in West Virginia.
Men of their caliber don’t throw away
certainties nor refuse positions that
greater citizens would be proud to fill.
If either of them believed the Republi-
can party,would be successful, in their
respective states this fall, they would
have accepted the opportunity oifered
with a greater delight than a darky
would that which the open door of a
hen coop would present to him.
——The Clinton county Democrats
did not have a very large ticket to nom-
inate at their convention on Tuesday
last, but they were careful in what they
did do, to do it well and to give to the
party and the people excellent and wor-
thy candidates, whose nomination will
be endorsed by every good Democrat
in the county, and whose election will
be certain to secure good officials and
a satisfactory performance of public du-
ties. For Congrees, Hon. S. R. PEALE
was named: for Assembly, Jas. C.|

tinued as county chairman.

ging the re-nomination cf congressman-

“that it is a party custom to give a rep

which party Mr. MoALEer gave his
support and assistance, the laet time he |!
was a candidate, we can form an idea ‘as’
to which ' organization it alludes to in’
referring to party custom.

tion to the fact that the $1,000, sent

office and as yet has found no taker.

Some of the Important Features of the
Baker Ballot Law.
The voter who wants to go to the

following important features of the

ers are allowed in the voting room at
once, outside the enclosed space,
and only four voters in excess of the
number of compartments are allowed
inside the enclosed space at once. Sec-
tion 22, 24.
2. Giving Name, &c.— Voters must
go first to the officers in charge of the
ballots and state name and address,
+ The right to vote must be proved and
the voter allowed to pass the guard
rail before Le can receive a ballot. Sec-
3. Preparing Ballots—Voters must
prepare their ballots forthwith, and in
the compartments, Section 23.
A cross (X)marked in the square at
the right of a party name indicates a
vote for all the candidates of that
party. : :
A cross (X) marked in the square at
the right of the name of a candidate in-
dicates a vote for that candidate.

er squares only.

er blank spaces only, and not in spaces
where names are already printed.
Names can be inserted by writing,
hand stamp, sticker or any other
means, not infringing the secrecy of
Names inserted can be marked, but
this is not necessary.
Names printed on the ballot must
not he inseried.
(Note.—When a candidate has died
or withdrawn and a substitute is nomi-
nated after the ballots are printed, the
new name is to be printed on an official
sticker. See section twelve. This
should obviously be inserted over the
name of the deceased or withdrawn
4. Help in Preparing Ballots.—Vot-
ers unable to prepare their own ballots
can be helped to do so, but only in
case of actual disability, which must
be explicitly declared to the judge. Sec-
(Note.—To preserve order this should
be done before the voter enters the en-
A voter desiring help must himself
select another voter of the district to
help him. Section twenty-seven.

out being actually unable to prepare
his balllot will be liable to indictment
for unlawfully showing his ballot. Sec-
A votea who attempts to influence
the vote of one whom he is helping will
be liable to indictment for unlawful
electioneering. Section 24, 31.

(Note.—As the constitution provides
that every ballot ‘shall be numbered
in the order in which it shall be re
ceived,” each voter must give up each
ballot to the inspector to number and
deposit it, as has been the rule hereto
fore. By the new law the inspector
must, in the presence of the voter, fast-
en the corner securely down over the
number, and voters should see that
this is done/and that the ballot is then
placed in the box.
6. Challeuges should be made before,

but it may be’'madeat any time before
he casts it.
A Victory in Two Duels.
A Couple of Artists Successively Shot Down by a!
German Army Officer.
BERLIN, Aug. 22.—Lieutenant Ho-
born had trouble early last week with
Herr Treuhglz, a sculptor. and Herr
Pertz, a painter. "The differences were
caused by the officer’s slighting remarks
concerning | the members of a club:in
Breslau to which Pertz and Treuholz be-
longed and were aggravated by the
Lieuterant’s reflections upon women
of the artist's acquaintances,
Hoborn brought matters to a head by
insulting both men in public. They
challenged him, and both duels were
fought with pistols Thursday. In the
first duel Treuholz was severely and per-
haps mortally wounded ;/in the second,
Pertz was shot dead. Hoborn is under

‘| All Quiet, Troops not Needed and Railroads Still
BurraLo, August 22.—Third Vice
President Webb, of the New York
Central Railroad, boarded his special
car this afternoon and started for home.
As he stepped into his carriage at the
Iroquois Hotel, preparatory to leaving
the city, he said ; “The strike is over ;
all that remains is the lawlessness. and
Almost at the moment he was saying
this seventy switchmen employed by the
Western New York and Pennsylvania
on the Buffalo and Pittsburg divsions
‘gathered up their dinner pails and wear-
ing apparel and went home. They hud
previously given notice that cars from
the Central, Erie and Lehigh Roads
would be refused if offered, and until
to-day the notice was studiously respect-
ed. The Central, however, insisted on
its right to send trains into the Western
New York and Pennsylvania yards sad
as a result the latter for the first time
disregarded the mandate of its workmen.
At 4 o’clock a Central train was backed
and the yardmen went home.
STILL ANOTHER STRIKE.
This is the second strike of the West-
ern New York and Pennsylvania switch-
men within a fortnight. They went out
with the yardmen of the Erie’ and Le-
high, but returned when the ten-hour
day was established by the road. At
2.80 o'clock this afternoon tha Lehigh
division of the Reading system r:ceived
another set-back in the shape of a strike
on its coal trestle. Thirty-five men
employed in shunting cars and assisting
at the damp went out in sympathy with
The arrival of Grand Master Sargent,
of the Firemen, and the prospective
coming of Messrs. Wilkinson, of the
Trainmen ; Clark, of the Conductors ;
Arthur, of the Engineers, and Ramsay,
of the Telegraphers, to hold a grand
council in which the question of calling
out all the railroad organizations will
be discussed, put the switchmen in ex-
cellent spirits. They believe a decision
favorable to a strike will be made and
that their cause will be won. Ttis
known that Sargent favors such a deci-
sion and that Wilknson isn’t averse to it.
The matter will then rest with Chief
Arthur, Chief Ramsay and Grand Mas-
Burraro, Aug. 23.—Shortly after
the tie up on the Lackawanna this after-
noon, the switchmen waited on Super-
intendent Seabert and offered their ser-
vices to protect the company’s property.
They were willing to be sworn in as
special patrolmen and to patrol the
Lackawanna yards until the present
difficulty was settled. Mr. Seabert re-
plied that he did not think the company
would require guards, millitary or other-
wise, and thanked the men for their
One hundred and forty switchmen
struck to-day in the yard of the Lacka-
wanna and the Buffalo, Rochester and
Pittsburg. Thus within two weeks past
switchmen have struck in all the yards
centered here. The men who went out
have been replaced as far as posible by
others, who are now doing the work in
all the yards,
General Doyle was seen at military
headquarters to-day. He said he did
not anticipate that any additional trcops
would be called here, unless something
occured which could not be foreseen.
He had a strong hope that the railroad
companies whicn had been temporarily
crippled by the desertion of their former
switchmen, would be able to handle their
business in two or three days as they
were before the strike began.
An American Missionary’s House
Burned in Asia Minor.
WasnHiNGgTON, Aug. 19.—The Secre-
tary of State to-day received a cable-
gram from the United States Charge at
Constantinople, informing him that the
house of Dr. Bartlett, an American mis-
gionary, at Bourdour, province of Ko-
nia, Asia Minor, has been burned, and
that the lives of the missionaries are in
danger. He believes that if prompt
action isnot taken the missionary cause
and lives of missionaries will be in se-
rious danger in other places.
The building of Dr. Bartlett's resi-
dence was originally stopped by the lo-
cal authorities. ‘On: application being
made for permission to complete the
house, it was refused, unless Dr. Bart.
let would furnish a bond or guarantee
to neither hold religious worship nor -
instruct children on the premises. The
withholding of the permit was claimed
to be under orders from Constantinople.
The legation applied to the Sublime
