GET UP CLUBS. — We hope that our
friends in each of the townships will
go to work to secure us a list of sub
scribers for the campaign. The price
of the Republican for three Months is

should subscribe for it. We appeal to

clubs for the Republican.
A. 0. FURST
ARE You REGISTERED ?—All citi
zens who desire to vote at the October
election, should see to it that their
names aro on the Registry, as made
by,the Assessors, under the new Reg
istry law. Naturalized citizens must
present their certificates to the As—
sessor when applying for registration,
unless they have been voters in the
district five consecutive years. It is
well to attend to this matter in time,
so that all who are entitled to vote
shall be registered.
That the leaders of the Democratic
party entertain any genuine sympa
thy for the workingman, or concern
themselves in his fortunes, has be—
come too apparent to require any se
rious argument to demonstrate. Just
so long as they can be wheedled and
cajoled into the support of that party
by promises as baseless as ropes of
sand, the Democratic leaders will be
loud in their sycophantic avowals of
interest in the welfare of our hard-toil
ing mechanics and artizans. Promises
are as cheap as confederate notes, and
Democratic promises are about as
- sorthless, The suffrages of our la
boring classes are required tokeep the
Democratic aristocrats in power and
place, and to this end, and for no oth •
er earthly reason, do Democratic
bowlers grow hearse in their wordy
professions of sympathy and interest
in the welfare of the poor men in this
cous!try. The Democratic leaders en
tertain the belief that poor men can
wav- fat upon these promises—can
support, clothe and educate their
families. At least they do no more
than promise. Just so surely as a po
sition worth money is to be given
away to members of that party, just
so surely do the political jobbers who
control the appointinents pass by the
claims and needs of the very men who
have placed them in position, and
deal out the "nit takes" to some fa
vored high—shirt-collared ar!stocrat
who never did a hard days labor in
his life. The workingman is always
the very last man thought of, though
possessing equal, and in many cases,
CEO. N. YOCUM
In connection with this subject, it
is pleasing to note that here and there
as the fact forces itself upon their at
tention, workingmen are breaking
away from the party to whose for
tunes they have so long clung, and
are ranging under the banners of the
only party their friend, protector and
help in their Limes of need—the Re
publican party. The Scranton Re•
"Workingmen put in nomination
and supported in the Democratic con
vention by the delegates from their
own localities, were thrown over, and
men nominated in their stead who
could not secure the endorsement of
their own districts. The only work
ingmen running for office in the coun•
ty are to be found on the Republican
ticket. And this is not the first year
that such has been the case."
The Germans of Luzerne county
held a convention last week,and unan
imously voted themselves out of the
Democratic party, and will hereafter
be found voting with the only party
thoroughly at heart their friend. The
Germans of Luzerne are hardworking
men, but the shameful treatment they
have received at the hands of the
Democratic leaders, has had the ef
fect to arouse their indignation and
result as stated.
Will the workingmen of Centre co.,
still in the Democratic ranks, longer
affiliate with their enemies?
That me. fa sal laing aristocrat, J.
G. '‘loyer, has in press, a new piece
of sheet music. The frontispiece em—
bellishment represents two immense
streams of oil—on paper of course—
falling in broad waves upon Haines
and Penn townships. By an ingenious
device the skilled engraver has man—
aged to give us a very complete life
history of J. G. One wave reads :
"$BOO out of my brother's pocket;"
another, "How I swindled Jaky Neid
igh ;" others " How handy to have
tenants with wives ;" Farms from my
neighborspockcts; " "school funds for
substitutes," etc., etc. The words to
which the music is set, commence :
"If so soon I am to be done for,
I wonder what I was begun for."
Moyer does not anticipate a fortune
from the sale of this "document" in
Miles tp.,as he says they "cannot com
prehend his system."
Just Like Them
The "Harmonious Democracy."
Our exchanges are filled with notices
of Democratic bickerings, and a gener
al dissolution of that party in a large
number of counties and principal towns
and cities throughout the State. It is
steadily breaking up, and its members
being paroled, or else are boldly desert
ing the demoralized ranks of the "har
monious," and rallying under the ban
ners of the confident and irresistable
Republicans. The work of disintegra
tion, like an insatiable cancer, has seiz
ed upon the once proud democracy, and
the pillars are crumbling and tottering
to their fall. The dissensions which the
party leaders and press have heretofore
partially covered up and kept from pub
lic view, can no longer be buried, healed
or banished from sight. The differences
existing are radical, positive and fatal,
and the result of the campaign will de
monstrate that the democracy have no
where advanced, or even held their own,
but. have steadily Lost in votes and party
spirit. The democracy of Philadelphia
are in a deplorable plight. Their nomi
nees—or the best and strongest of them
—unwilling to incur the expense of a
hopeless contest, are resigning, and the
bewildered leaders are praying lustily
for somebody more reckless than Sam
Patch to take their places. in the 15th

the interest of certain independent can
didates, and the growlings, mutterings,

Fred Krauts' "noserag" at Centre Hall,
are attempting to make a ripple in the

broken out in that famous Democratic
precinct. We have patiently waited for
both these doughty warriors to express
their sentiments, and vainly hoped, for
some tangible proof—some fact or figure
in their ocean of words upon the subject
—before going into a general history of
that famous railroad transaction in which
the papers mentioned clamorously charge
Mr. Coburn with being unpleasantly con
nected. We shall wait no longer. The
record of Mr Coburn, and that of his op
ponent., Mr. Moyer, alias Meye”, in con

THE Centre Hall "noserag" comes to
the defence of Meyer, and attempts to
break the force of our inquiry touching
Moyer, or, rather, Meyer's complicity in
the Haines township oil swindle. The
defence but plunges Moyer, or, rather,
Meyer, more deeply into the mire of cor
ruption and deceit enveloping the trans
action, and substantially admits the
truth of our charge. How many hun
dred dollars did Jacob G. Moyer, or,
rather, Meyer, take from the pockets of
his poor, toiling, but honest neighbors,
and transfer to his own ? How many
corner lots, tenements, fast horses and
extra suits of broadcloth has he been
enabled to purchase with this money-2

A NEW scheme of rascality, having in
view the withdrawal of thirty millions
of gold, whereby those who pay duties
will be compelled to buy it of the ras

foot in New York. The prompt interro

earnestly invoked to protect the business
community. Better invoke the aid of
the stern arm of . the law, if there is any
suiting the case. In San Francisco,
when there was no law adequate to the
emergency, Lynch law was invoked with
happy effect, and this, too, when threat
ened with results less injurious than
would flow from the success of the New
STILL NO ANSWER .I—Packer and his
supporters are dumb concerning the
charge that he sneaks out of paying his
taxes, and saddles them upon those who
are not so fortunate as to he worth mil
lions or even thousands. Such a fact
proven against a man asking credit at a
bank or business house, would probably
cause him to be instantly rejected. It.
covers the man's entire character. It re
flects him like a mirror, and causes him
to be seen and comprehended at a glance
by the whole world. The charge is no
"electioneering dodge." It is a perfect
ly authenticated fact, which no one pre
tends to deny.
The Democratic papers are attack
ing Gov. Geary on account of hie
extremely temperate habits. Andy
Johnson and Frank Blair suit them better.
