Friday Morning, Januarjrn* 1873.
The official returns of the vote in
"Clearfield county on license or no
license show ja majority: of 480
against license. There are thirty-one
districts in the county,of which, nine
gave majorities for license > and
twenty-two against. Senator‘Wal
lace and ex-Gov. Sigler, distin
guished Democrats, reside in Clear
field bordugh, which,for the borough
ticket elected bn the same day, gave
129 Democratic majority, but polled
under the Xiocal Option law, 113
for license and 161 against
This is not a party-question, and
neither the Republican nor Demo
cratic party is committed to either
side* -It is generally understood
throughout the State that politics
shall have nothing to do towards
deciding the question either way,
but the people shall be left entirely
7 free to act and vote in regard to it
.as their judgments and consciences
We are in favor of trying the no
license law for three years, and so
find out hy experience whether the
measure be good or bad, and if the
facts prove it to be beneficial at the
expiration of that time, ihep retain
it on the eonservative principle of
bolding fast that which is good; but
on the other hand if the contrary
experience results therefrom, the
people, having the matter in their
hands, can easily abolish the prohi
bition. We trust that the subject
will be discussed calmly and se
riously, and that all classes will
come to the conclusion to give the
no license law*’ a trial, which will
place all parts of the county on an
equality as regards the liquor traffic.
Now there is no equality, and the
privilege of selling is granted to a
few who are fortunately situated,
and denied to the rest*
Prohibition without a public sen
timent to. sustain it will be a dead
letter on the Statue books, and
therefore it is desirable that a full
vote be cast either for.or against li
. cense, in order to show the exact
statP. oT fooling county" in fCr
gard to the matter.
As we announced in our last issue,
pur columns are open to a full and
- free discussion of the merits of the
question, and we wiH endeavor to
treat frieh<& of either side with
equal consideration, our only ob
ject being to ascertain the truth* and
inform the people fully as to their
duties on this subject.
Hear both sides, and then vote
according to your best judgment for
the good of the county and the wel
fare of your neighbor, cer
tainly will act wisely you
may, vote.
We are gratified to know that
Senator Cameron has been re-elect
•ed to the Senate of the -Jinked
States, without being charged with
the use of improper means to secure
«ueh a result. His political enemies
heretofore, defeated, soothed
their sorrows by the reflection that
it was not popularity, but money
that overwhelmed them, but now
their grief arrises from the fact that
Tower was not up to time, and the
Republicans.went into caucus with
only tone candidate for the position,
thus rendering impossible the use of
money in the contest.
True, four members voted for Kel
ley and two for Wicker sham, but
these gentlemen were not candi
dates, and didnot know that their
names were to be-used as such. The
** Hon. John 'Allison, who was named
for the place, not only absolutely re
fused to allow the use of his name*
but recommended his iriendh, of
whom we consider our Senator one,
to vote for Senator Cameron. We
may, therefore, truly say that there
was no the people had an*
ticipated the caucus and decided
the matter in advance; the choice
practically unanimous. *The
faithful but slandered public? ser
vant has justly been rewarded for

A memorial froih the ; Women’* •
Suffrage Association of Pehnsylva;-
nia has been presented to the Con--
stitutional Convention, urging that
as one-half of tbe adult citizens of
Pennsylvania are now deprived of
the ballot, and compelled' to obey
laws in the framing of which they
have bad no voice; that, therefore,
the Constitution be amended so as
,to secure, perfect equality of citi
zenship without distinction of sex.
There is some probability that the
pew constitution will embody a
clause of this kind, or that the ques
tion will be separately,, referred to
the deoisipii of jhe people, ,V

Womai|f enfranchisement
ing moire' add'more a vital question,
which will soon have to be solved at
the ballot box; but Pennsylvania is
not ready for the change now, for
the mass of women in the State do
not desire it, and would not accept
the duties involved therein. If this
change in the organic law everj
takes place it will be a matter ofne
cessity similar to the enfranchise
ment of the negro, in order to se
cure by the votes of women import
ant reforms, and perhaps tbe perpe
tuity of our free institutions. Ne
gro emancipation and enfranchise
ment were not so much a matter of
sentiment as it was the logical re
sult of our education ; it couldn’t
have well happened otherwise, for
suehvVast interests depended on it.
So wall come woman’s enfranchise;
ment in good time; but not now.
She has a mission to perform, a
great work to do in way of moral
reforms that she can accomplish on
ly when clothed with the full power
of citizenship. . But the time to en
ter upon that work is not yet.
Gen. W. W. lewin, in a letter
dated Jan. 11, published in the last
Argu8 y states unqualifiedly that our
Philadelphia letter, of 7th inst, sign
ed “Trefoil,” was prepared in No.
42, Girard House, by J. S. Rutan,D.
L. Imbrie and John. F. Price. We
do not like to make use of hard epi
thets; but the man who could delib
erately write the above, without a
particle of information in , regard to
it, and desire to have what he had
written believed by the public as a
lacis unworthy puWio confi
dence, and so depraved that lying
is made easy. Neither one of the
gentlemen mentioned above ever
wrote or dictated, or caused to be
written or dictated a word of thcT
letter referred to ;*nor did either ofib
of them ever see the. letter or heab
it read, or know of its existence un
til it was published. The letter was
written by our regular correspond
ent, who resides in Philadelphia,
and who alone is responsible for
what he writes. It was hardly nec
essary to make this denial for the
purpose of destroying the General’s
story, but while it does that it mab=
also serve to disclose the true char
acter of the man.
The investigation of the stocl
transactions of the Credit Mobilie:
has already brought to light sonn
ugly testimony. James Brooks, i
distinguished member of Congress
from New York City, is badly dam
aged by the testimony of his son-in
law, which seems to contradict his
own, and to in the public
very grave suspicions in regard to
the other so-called innocent stock
transfers. Further investigation
will proceed with vigor.
The Republican party Cannot af
ford to hush this matter up; it must
clear its skirts of the whole transac
tion. If any guilt attaches to any
member let pot the Republican par
ty become- a participant by aiding
in its concealment! Search 'Out the
guilty, if any there be, and let Ju

Correspondence of the Radical.
: Jan. 13, 1873»
Bofh Houses of the Legislature organ
ized qd Tuesday, and the same day the
Republicans met in joint caucus to nomi
nate a candidate for United States Sena
As the election does not take place un
til the 21st inst. the caucus was held rath
er early; but as it was understood Sena
tor Cameron had no opposition, there was
a general desire among the members to
have it over. General White was elected
chairman of the caucus, on motion of
Senator Rotao; and Mr. McCormick, of
secretary. Senator Graham
nominated General' Cameron, and a mo
tion was made to nominate him by accla
mation, when Senator Dayis, of Phila
delphia, nominated Hon. W. D. Kelley.
A ballot was then taken, yrhich resulted
in Genera] Cameron receiving 65, Kelly
4 and Wickersbam 2. • Davis bad declar
ed himself for Cameron, a|nd many were
surprised at his nominating Kelley, as it
was known Mr. Kelly was not a candi
date, and had no thought of being placed
in nomination. Senator Davis lives in
bis district, which may Account for bis
action, but we venture the opinion that
Judge Kelley will not thank him for plac
ing him in such an unenviable position.
There were more than !siz persons in
the caucus who preferred eome one else
to Cameron for Senator, and had Allison,
Ketcham, Armstrong or some man of like
character desired the nomination, or per
mitted the nse of their nam|p the vote
would have shown this fact. As General
Cameron’s nomination was conceded after
the October election, there; were no other
candidates in the field, hipped the oyer
whelming vote for the General. I
!= JBpiS: John Allison wajs the favorite,,
among the western meinbers, and'had; he

sentative Allison of your district, and

would have : been presented and would
have received a good vote| He requested
his friendslo vote: for Cameron, if a can

tion, and the people expected it. The
nomination, so nearly unanimous, was cier
tainly very- <»nipilmentiary to thp fold
chief, but not more than the- indorse-
I ment he received at tfae polk:in October.
This is the first Senatorial election in
the Commonwealth, wlthjin the recollec
tion of the oldest inhabitant, about
which there were not phdrges Of briery
and corruption. .It "Is creditable to pur

Col. McClure will be counted as a Dem
ocrat ih making up the committees, al-
though he protests be is not one and will
not act with that party. Indeed it looks
as If the regular Republicans and Demo
crats would act together, and by combin -
ing crush the Liberals altogether.' When
McClure introduced his first Reform b 11
on Tuesday, Senator Wallace was the first
to attack it, and he was followed by Gen
eral White, after which the Colonel’s mo
tion for a special reference was voted
down by a large majority. The Chair-
man: of the Liberal State Committee was
very much disgusted with his late allies,
and now shows more disposition than ev-
er to come back into the fold.
From present appearances there will be
a lively contest foi the Speakership of the
Senate at the close of the present ses
sion. Senators Graham. White, Strang
and Davis are all spoken of, and if they
all determine to be candidates it is hard
to tell who will be the victor. The fact
of Senator Graham being Speaker during
the session of 1868, and residing in the
same 1 county with the present Speaker,
will injure bis chances very much, while
White’s beihg in the Constitutional Con
vention, Wfll be as much or more in bis
way. He was complimented with a nom
ination and election at the close of the
session of 1870, and cares so little about
it now that it is thought he will decline
to be a candidate. In this event it is safe
to predict that Strang is the coming man,
and he has few superiors as a presiding
The members of the Constitutional
Convention are already for an
increase of pay. They get the same pay
and mileage as members of the Legisla
ture and yet they are not satisfied, but
demand three thousand dollars for their
services. From present appearances their
services do not promise to be worth
much, and they will be overpaid if they
take what is allowed in the act of last
year. In this connexion justice to Gen
eral White the statement that
he r lwill not acce|R of any salary as a
member of the Convention, but will be
content with his pay as Senator. If any*
thing practical or valuable emanates from
the Convention the people. will be. very
agreeably surprised. Some of the dele
gates are beginning to realize this, and
are so foolish as to talk of adopting the
Constitution without submitting it to a
vote of the people. If they want to be
taught a lesson to be remembered let
them try this. To show the fitness of
many of the delegates, it is related that
one of the most distinguished members of
the Convention was asked to address the
committee on Suffrage and Flections, and
solemnly asserted in his address that he
was informed and believed that the ballot
boxes in Philadelphia at the election in
October were taken to room No. 43, Gi
rard House, in broad daylight, opened
and the out and changed,
making the majority to suit those pres
ent. Another member of the Convention,
who hails unfortunately from an adjoin
ing county ito Beaver, declared that the
statement in the Governors Message,
showing the reduction of the public debt
was untrue; that there bad beet no re
duction of the principal whatever, and the
Governor was adding the amount of inter
est paid during the years named, and
claiming credit for that amount of debt.
From a Convention in which the opinions
of such ignoramuses have weight, what
can the people expect!
Mr. Mackey authorizes your correspond
ent to state he does not intend to devote
bistime to journalism, and that bis posi
tion is not correctly reported in our last

■ Many Republicans here think that The
Radical might get another correspond
ent in Philadelphia, and dispense with
the services of the Assistant Secretary of
the Liberal State Committee. These
Philadelphia politicians don’t understand
how an editor can print communications
from a Liberal Republican and yet re
main orthodox. As there has been much
complaint about this matter among your
subscribers, it is well enough for you to
know if, and then you can govern your
self accordingly. If the position of the
correspondent is understood, the editor
cannot be censured for what appears in
his Communications. M.
I The Masonic authorities of Nebraska

Philadelphia, Jan. 14. iffla.
: It is universally conceded by the Jrbm.
inent actors intbe field of politics in this
city, that Col.: M;< 8; Quay, of
will* as Secretary of the Commonwealth*
be made the chief of Governor Hartranft’g
cabinet. The mere announcement of this
proposed appointment * meets with a
hearty response from lhepoliticians; great
andBmaU,of this city, as well as from
the business community generally. The
acquaintances of the active partisans of
Philadelphia with Cot Quay has been
so intimate, their, relations with him of
such an Agreeable-character, and their
knowledge Of his eminent qualifications
for this important office so general, they
have created a degree of satisfaction &]-
dom experienced in regard to gubernato
rial appointments. Republicans and Dem-
ocrats Unite In the belief that qd better
choice could be made; and the admission
is general, that with so competent, care-
ful, reliable and affable a Secretary of
State, to guard the interests of the Gov-
ernor. the administration of General Hat-
tranft will be remarkably successful.
There are not a tew among us whose
friendship for Col. Quay is so warm that
in the fertility of their imagination, they
see in this probable selection of their
friend, the first step taken, the second' of
which leads to the chair of the Executive
of the Commonwealth.
Andrew G. Curtin retired from the of.
fice of Secretary of Stale, under Govern.
or Pollock in 1858, to assume gubernato-
rial duties in 1861. Doubtless It was the
experience gained by Secretary Curtin,
that gave his administration, as Govern
or, such historic prestige; and if civil
service reform is to be extended to State
politics, Col. Quay being in direct line of
promotion, it is eminently proper for onr
prospective Secretary to become the suc
cessor of General Hartranft.
_ Gen. Charles H. T, Collis, our amiable
and learned City Solicitor, having fore*
sworn local politics, since becoming
statesman, is not unwilling to serve the"
State and himself by accepting the office
of Attorney General under Governor
Hartranft. The bravery acqa ited by Gen
eral Collis, wb ile fighting the battalions
of General Lee, has become so deeply
rooted that oncein a while it breaks ont
as it did a few days ago, when be inform
ed your correspondent that • although by
a majority pf ten thousand his fellow citi-.
sens made him the Solicitor of Philadel
phia, yet his modesty would prevent bis-;
soliciting from General Hartranft the?
appointment of Attorney General ;
if it was tendered him, he would accept
it, and as bravely mnriii Tn dufr
role of Attorney General as he marched
to battle to conquer Lee, in the. role of
a soldier. General Collis being one of our
safest lawyers, a worse selection might
easily be made.
Shall I tell the readers of The Radical
how a recent candidate for Senatorial
honors came to grief. I take it for grant
ed that the people of Beaver have a faint
recollection that a gentleman from Schuyl
kill recently had a hankering for the Sen
atorial seat, occupied by General Cam
eron. To get possession of it, this same
gentleman who is a great soldier and ac
quired fame as such in the late war, knew
that if be could capture the Legislative
delegation from this city, he would bare
little difficulty in storming the citadel and
putting Cameron to the rout. The cam
paign was well planned, but failed in the
execution, for the reason that the Lieu
tenant detailed to., make the capture fell
into the hands of bushwhackers and guer
rillas; and it came about in this way;
A certain lawyer from Schuylkill county
was given $l,BOO in cash and ordered to
repair to Philadelphia for the purpose
of sounding the “delegation” aforesaid is
to how they felt in regard to the Senator
ship, provided a man was put up in oppo
sition to Cameron whose very name, was
a Tower of strength, and whose pocket
book was almost as plethoric as Uncle
Sam’s. This lawyer was directed to dress
gorgeously while in Philadelphia^ l' ,ve
astoundingly, as the representative of »
millionare Senatorial candidate should do.
Well, the lawyer began to live a gorgeous
life, and the day following his arrival
several of the “delegation” Were invited
to his rooms; champagne was ordered
and it flowed freely; from wine to set
back eucher, “McCullough” and a few
other “heathen Chinee” took a hand,
and before many of the small hours of
morning were ushered ixa; the young man
from Schuylkill lost bis pile; *his astound
ingly sumptuous style of living terminat
ed rather unceremoniously, and- with the
loss of the $l,BOO, in the little game the
lawyer did not understand, and in which
“Tit” took a hand, the bottom fell but of
the Tower, and “Tit” thus having saved
his friend Cameron Jrom the raid of
Tower’s man, ought to be*made Collector
of the Port, vice S-1. Cpmly. '

him during the campaign, and as often
endeavored to persuade him to return

to say Robert has returned, and is now
one of ns, having been restored to full
fellowship in the ranks of Hartranft re
