Tue SLy OLD CooN IN THE TorLs.—- |
member a story, which we publish- |
ed over a year ago, about ’Squire An- |
drew Rankin, of Karthaus, Clearfield |
county. :
The "Squire was first brought to our |
notice as a witness on the Andrews,
murder case, tried here, in which be |
figured quite prominently. He gained
a degree of notoriety by marrying a
woman at Haag’s hotel while he was
here in the capacity of a witness. Af-
ter the conviction of Andrews the pair
went home to Karthaus to live. Out
there the ‘Squire was considered one of
the substantial men of the community.
In fact so much so that he was Justice
of the Peace, a School Director, Post
Master, under Harrison’s first adminis-
tration, and administrator of several
large estates. Time went well and so
did he, but vicissitudes always go hand
in band with prosperity and there came
a day when the friends of Andrew Ran-
kin, Esq., began to question the methods
which he had used to promotes such an
Alladin like growth of riches. Accord-
ingly an investigation was set a-foot.
Now ’Squire Rankin knew a few
things and one of them was, ‘that it
was time for him to disappear. And he
did it with a success that baffled all at-
tempts at discovery. Whilean army of
creditors seized his furniture, selling 1t
under the hammer, all tke while
heaping imprecations of the vilest kind
on their erstwhile friend, the wiley
’Squire was cosily ensconced in his own
garret, where a blind partition separat-
ed his room from the rest of the house.
It was a safe retreat and there he sat
from morning ’til night smoking and
watching the movements of the wonder-
ing villagers. There came a time, how-
ever, when he had to move. Tioga
county was the haven to which he flew,
while the {amily gave up the farm and
came to live with Centre county rela-
After he left Karthaus his where-
abouts becamea mystery until some one
discovered him up in Tioga county,
within the last month. A warrant was
sent after him and now the crafty old
villain is in the Clearfield jail await-
ing trial on charges of larceny, embez-
zlement, forgery and fraud. It he gets
convicted on all the counts he will go to
the penitentiary for seventy-four years.
He Hap Ir CnaArGeEp.—The other
day a Linn street matron hired a neigh-
bor’s little boy to go to the butcher shop
tor her. She paid him five cents, in ad-
vance, for running the errand and told
him to bring her a nice sirloin steak and
have it charged:
The youngster of course ran away
gleefully with his pennies in his hand
and was returning with the meat when
his father overtook him. In answer to
his parent’s inquiry as to whose meat it
was the young hopelul, with his mouth
stuffed with a big wad of chewing gum
and licorice juice smeared all over his
face, blurted out that he was working
for Mrs. Blank. But said the father
“how much did you pay the butcher
for it ?”” “I don’t know”, was the re-
sponce, “I told him to charge it.”
“Who did you tell him to charge it to?”
questioned the fond parent with grow-
ing idterest, which showed evident con-
sternation when the reply . “I just said
charge,” came from the lips of the scion
of bis family, ‘“ Well where did you get
it?” querried pa. “Why up where we
get our mhat.”
Nothing further was needed, but a
subsequent visit to the butcher’s dis-
closed th fact that the buy’s indulgent
father had been buying meat for the
whole community while his industrious
son was rolling up pennies for the bank
which he had busted a few days before.
The little business has been suspended
now and perhaps the industry of a
promising lad sacrified.
His HEeL TorN OFr.— While walk-
ing down the rail-road from Armor’s
Gap, last Friday morning, Samuel Meese,
an employee of the McCoy & Linn’s
iron works, was overtaken by a shifting
engine and knocked off the track. In
falling he either tore his heel off or the
car ran over it, for when he was picked
up it was in a horrible condition, besides
he was badly bruised otherwise. The
injured man was carried 1nto the home
of George Kelley, near by; where he
boards and is receiving every care. It
is said that he isslightly deaf thereby

his new play, but fearing the cold were
forced to remain at home. The opera

tinues as it bas been there will be any
better houses than Ellis played to for
some time.

cERS.—One of our exchanges has pre-
pared the following concise instructions
to election officers for holding the
Spring elections. As it is a matter of
interest to every tax payer in the county
as well as to these who will have charge
of the elections, on February 21st, to
know all the details of the new law we
bave arranged them to suit our county
and publish them as follows :
“The elections in the various bor-
oughs and townships of this county, cn
February 21st next, will be conducted
precisely as was the election on Novem-
ber 8th last. So far as the actual vot-
ing and the duties of officers on election
day are concerned the provisions of the
Baker Ballot Law applicable to both
these elections are identical. But with
regard to preliminaries there are differ-
ences of the utmost importance. The
method of nominating tickets for the
February election, and of preparing the
ballots for the third Tuesday of that
month, are so radically different under
the new law from the custom of long
standing in many districts, that officials
upon whom duties are devolved by the
new law, as well as citizens interested
in local political affairs and in the pro-
motion of good municipal government,
should lose no time in familiarizing
themselves with the new requirements.
To aid in the dissemination of infor- |
mation on this subject, we herewith pre-
sent an epitome of those requirements of |
the Baker Ballot Law which will ma-
terially effect the 51 election districts of
Centre county in preparing for the
February election, and which differ
from the provisions that controlled the
preparations for the elections in Novem-
In the boroughs one primary and one
certificate will suffice for each party.
These certificates, which will be fur-
nished in blank by the county commis-
sioners, must be filed with borough au-
ditors, and it then becomes the duty of
these officials, after the time for the fil-
ing objections has expired, to see that
proper and legal ballots, the cost of
which is to be paid by the county, are
prepared and ready for election day.
The time for filing certificates in bor-
oughs is not less than ten days before
the election, but it will be well to have
all the primaries much earlier than this
(many townships have fixed on the last
Saturday in January as a suitable date),
80 as to allow ample time for the dis-
charge of the responsible duties with
which the auditors will be charged.
Nominations for any borough office
may also be made by nomination papers
or petitions signed by at least three per
centum of the largest entire vote cast for
any officer elected at the last election in
the borough. To geta name on the
official ballot for chief burgess in the
borough cof Centre Hall for instance by
virtue of nomination papers, or petitions,
such papers must be signed by at least
three per centum ot the number of votes
cast for chief burgess at the election
last February. Such nomination papers
or petitions must be filed with the bor-
ough auditors not less, than seven days
before the election, but should be filed
much earlier for the reason heretofore
stated with regard to the certificates ot
Objections as to the form of certifi-
cates or papers must be sent in writing
to and determined by, the borough au-
ditors. The time for filing such ob-
jections is within three days after the
last day for filing. Objections as to the
validity of certificates or papers in bor-
oughs are filed within the same period,
but with the Court of Common Pleas,
to be determined by it.
In alarge number of the townships of
the county the new law works a revolu-
tion in the method of naming a ticket.
It makes mandatory , in order to get
party representation on the official bal-
lot, party primaries. There is no other
way for political parties to get represen-
tation on the official ballot. - Heretofore
in many of the townships primaries
have not been held, but in lieu thereof
one ticket was made up, having printed
on it the names of all who desired to
run for office, whether Democrat or Re-
publican, and then the voter on election
day made his choice. This was very
easy, simple and satisfactory, but the
new law sets it aside and puts in its place
ings. : :
In undivided townships, only one :
certificate will be made out by each .po- |
litical party. It willbe filled with the
township auditors. But in townships '
that are divided into two or more elec- |
tion districts, such as. Spring, it will
be the duty of the officers of the |
primary meeting ‘in ‘each election dis- |
trict first to certify to the township au- |
ditors the party nominees for judge and
inspector of elections and also for regis-
try assessor and then to consolidate the
vote of the townships on echool directors
supervisors, constable and the other
township officers, and jointly certify on
the blank form furnished by the county
commisssoners the names of the nom-
inees to the township auditors,
This must be done, according to the
lettor of ‘the law, at least ten days before
the election. But it may be well to 1e-
iterate here what was said with regard
to this matter under the head of bor-
oughs, that in order to give the audi-
tors sufficient time to properly discharge
their duties the primaries “should be
held not later than the last Saturday in
this month, and the certificates filed
immediately thereafter.
Nomination papers or petitions may
also be filed in township affairs, and the
candidates thus petitioned for are enti-
tled to be named on the official ballot,
providing the papers are signed by at
least three per cent. of the largest entire
vote cast for any officer elected at the
last election in the district or township
for which the nomination paper is in-
tended. Such nomination papers must
be filed with the duditors at least seven
days before the election, but should be
filed much sooner than this, as was ex-
plained above, so that the auditors may
have sufficient time to prepare for elec-
tion day.
Objections as to the form of any town-
ship certificates or paper must be sent
in writing to the auditors within three
days after tke last day for filing, but ob-
jections as to the validity of such papers
or certificates go to the Common Pleas
Court of the county for decision within
the same limit of time.
It then becomes the duty of the town-
ship auditors to arrange the data filed
with them for the official ballot, the ex-
pense of printing which is borne by the
county. A separate and different ballot
will be necessary in each election dis-
trict, and in the township of Spring
for instance, two sets of ballots
wiil be prepared, one set for each elec-
tion district. Great care must necessari-
ly be exercised by the auditors in doing
this work. A mistake in the fcrm or
matter of the ballot might invalidate
the election. Apnlication at the county
commisioners’ office for proper blanks
and instructions will doubtless aid audi-
tors materially in concluding their work
in a legal manner.”
