For months past tlio Masoalc frater
nity, belonging totho Catawlssn Lodge
and Chapter, have been busily engaged
In building a Masonic Hall, which on
Tuesdnv last, was dedicated "in ample
form." The building is a largo threo
storv brick, nnd is located near tlio
Academy at tho upper end of tho town
The basement has been leased by tho
mercatitllo Arm of Yottcr, Lool, A Co.
The second story consists of a fine, spa
cious town-hall. In tho upper story is
tho Masonic Hall, and accompanying
niite-roonis. Tho celling Is finely paint
ed, and tho walls frescoed. A uiugmfl
cent Brussels carpet covcia tho Hoom,
and tho furniture and decorations aro
all now and appropriate. Tlio build
hi" has a gravel roof, mid Is warmed by
heaters. Upon thowbololtis creditable

Tho heavy rains of Sundny night
and Monday had so swollen tlio creeks
and river that it was almost impossiuio
to reach Catawlssn from tills side of the
river. This fact prevented hundreds
from attending tlio ceremonies, who
had expected to do so. Tho morning
trnln broucht theGrand Master, Hohert
A. Lamberton, tho Grand Secretary,
tho Grand Senior and Junior Wardens,
and theGrand Marshal. At 111 A. M.
tho Lodgo and Chapter assembled at
their old hall, and tho Grand Lodgo
officers and their substitutes met at
Kosienbauder'9 Hotel: Tlio proces
sion, numbering over ono hundred,
marched in tlio usual manner tj tho
new Hall, preceded by tho Catawissa
band. Wo may hero remark that our
neighbors have one of tho finest bands
In this section, considering their oppor
tunitics, and arc making rapid progress.
Tlio usual tolcmn ceremonies of dedica
tion wcro observed, alter which a lino
address was delivered by Grand Mas
ter Lambcrton, who was followed by
numbers of visiting brethren. Among
tho Speakers wcro District Deputy
Grand Master Knapp, andUro. Irish,
a Mason of fifty-two years standing.
At 2 P. M. the Lodgo closed, and
those present, including many of their
wives and tlaugters adjourned to tho
second story of tho Academy, but a few
yards distant, where n magnificent din
ner had been prepared by tho ladies of
Catawissa. Wo will not attempt a de
scription of what was there, but simply
remark, that there Is nothing good to
eat but what was there, and that if any
of our friends want a good cook for a
wlfo, ho should get her at Catawissa.
In the afternoon tho officers of the
Grand Lodgo loft for their respectlvo
homes. In tho evening, however, now
attractions appeared, and having been
disappointed in tho expected arrivals
from abroad, tho Catawlsslans fell back
on their own resources, and tho result
was tho finest ball over held in Colum
bia county. Wo arpnotart adept In such
matters and therefore will not attempt
a description in detail. Tho dancing
began between eight and nino o'clock,
and continued until two in tho morning.
Tho public hall in tho Masonic Buildiug
was used, and tho Masonic rooms nbovo
wcro given up for tho occasion to tho
indies, who gazed curiously enough at
tho emblems of tho order displayed.
Most excellent music was furnished by
Eepatz's famous band of Williamsport.
Some sixty couples wcro present, and
generally fivo or six sets were on tho
floor at a time. Tho utmost decorum
prevailed; and not a single improper
word was uttered nor was tliero any
drunkenness or dissipation among tho
dancers. At midnight a splendid col
lation was served at tho Academy, and
tho fables almost bent with tho weight
of tho edibles. Cakes, fruit, oranges,
lees, etc., besides tho moro substantial
kinds of food, woro there.' In profusion.
Tho young people of Catawissa owo
tlio Masonic fraternity a debt of grati
tudo for having furnished them so
much genuine pleasure, and the day
was ono lone to bo remembered In tlio
annals of "ynancicnt town."
"J Happy Kentucky Tamily
Thu secretary of tho treasury has re
ceived a letter, In which tho statement
Ismailo that In (ho third lovenuo dis
trict of Kcntucky.thcro exists tho great
est enso of nepotism on record. Tho
collector or tho distrlrt, E. L. Mottloy,
has a brother, H. V. Mottley, as a gnu
gcr. Theiissetfor, W. E. Hobson.isa
cousin of tho collector. Hobson has In
his tfiUohls father, uncle, son, father-in-law
and two brothers. Assistant as
sessors, clerks, gaugers, etc., aro all
filled bv his and Mottlev's kindred.
Tho secretary referred the matter totho
commissioner oi internal rovenuo,
with tho endorsement that a change
must bo mado, and tho happy family
dispersed fiom tho government care.
Tlio commisslone? notified tho two
miislnn that thovmust ntonccmakon
chnngo, or they would probably hear
from tlio rresiuoni on meir account."
All of which may bo very true, but
Hobeon's choieo in tho matter Is only
tha of others in high nuthorlty.
Wliero Is tho member of Grant's fam'
lly, or relative, howsoever dlstaut, of
that eminent chieftain, who is unpro
vided with a place at the pubiio crib?
From Jus voncrablo father to the portly
brother-in-law who keeps tho door of
tho Whlto IIouso, ail live at the public
expense. Thero Is not, unfortunately,
anv commissioner to notify him to
"mako n chango." Of tho two, Hobson
or Qrant, wo prefer Hobson, who has a
precedent for his action in tho high
places of tho land.
The Trenton True American has tho
following with summary of Grant's re
construction of Mississippi;
"Itcconstriictlon" In Mississippi is an
Instructive little study, Tho President
makes Brovet Major Central Ames
commander and Provisional Governor,
Brovet Major General Ames makes a
Legislature. The Legislature, In a
spirit of reciprocity, makes Brovet Ma
jor General Amea Senator. And then
comes tlio said Ames und certifies that
tho said Ames lias been so elected."
Advantages of tho Tree Vote.
Hefnrmed voting has tho following
Military effects, Illustrated moro or less
fully at our lato local election!
1. Tho expulsion of disfranchisement
from popular elections. Men do not
voto and hso their votc-i. Thoy uro not
counted out -ostracised deprived of
all volco lu their government. This In
justice they havo often suffered In both
general and local elections, but will
sufler no longer when reformed voting
shall ho established. How much of con
tentment and of Increased attachment
to republican Institutions must this ono
beneficent chango produce 1
2. Tho best men can bo selected as
candidates and olectcd. Availability;
a mero capacity to get votes and often
tho worst votes In tho community tho
whiskey boys of saloons, tlio bigots of
churches, tho purchasable and tho tim
id citizens loses nearly all its irapor-
tauco In tho selection of candidates.
For tlio floating voto tho voto subject
to influence will no longer hold tho
balance of power hot ween parties nnd
control elections. Tljo Independent,
upright citizen, unskilled In tho cor
rupt devices of majority voting, can nf
ford to bo a candldato and can succeed
lu splto of tho rogues and rulTalns of Ills
district. And in ofllco ho can defy
them, for thoy will not hold his ro-elec-tlon
and his future lu their bauds.
3. An unembarrassed and bolter so
lection cau bo mado by tho voter from
among candidates. His freedom of
choice will bo a reality and not a delus
ion. Even the degree of his preference
for a candldato cau bo expressed by the
frco voto. Ho can givo all hU votes to
ono candidate; ho may distribute them
among candidates at ho shall think fit.
For tlio first timo thn principle of self
government Is to be realized lu elector
al action. Thovoteristojudgo for him
self, and not tho law for him, how his
votes shall bo bestowed.
4. Under tho free voto but fuw candi
dates at popular elections will bo de
feated and they and their frionds mor
tified and soured in mind for tho future,
But a single candidate for member of
our town council underwent defeat at
tho late election, and the running of a
surplus candidate aroso out of particu
lar circumstances and wa3 nu excep
tional case. Ordinarily thero will bo
but six candidates Instead of seven.
But under the old plan of election thero
would havo boon at least twclvo candi
dates and six of them would have been
defeated. Six beaten men in tho com
munity would havo meant discontent,
resentment and retaliation hereafter.
At all events, a reduction of nearly ono
half lu tlio number of candidates at
elections would bo highly advantageous
fi. Finally, the Frco Voto strikes off
two-thirds of tho oxponso and cono
quent corruption of elections. It takes
away most of thomotivo to corrupt vo
ters, for under it tho necessity of buy
ing majorities will no longer exist and
press upon parties and candidates.
Wo will conclude with a single addi
tional remark. Tho free voto in order
to its complete operation to its thor
ough renovation of our electoral system
must bo applied to tho nomination of
candidates as well as to their election;
to tho primary as well as to tho legal
olcctlons. That it can bo so applied
with convenience and effectually wo bo
liovo will bo proved at no distant day
In this county of Columbia, which now
onjoys thohonorablo distinctiou of hav
ing had held In her principal town tho
first truly republican and entirely just,
liberal and reformed election ever held
in the United Statts an election in
which no man felt that ho was stealing
power from his neighbor or that his
neighbor was stealing power from him!
Senator Lowry on the Murder of
In a rcmarkablo speech on tlio sub
ject, Senator Lowry spoke as follows in
regard to tho execution of Mrs. Surratt.
" As an atonement for tho wrongs of
tho South, the great men of tho North
at Washington put to death by.r-tran-gulatlouanold,
Catholic mother, who will go dowu in
history a victim of injustice. This wo
man's execution was a monstrosity that
history will point at as "judicial mur
der." Sho was tried by a military tri
bunal when sho was not subject to mil
itary duty and executed with indecent
liasto by tho order of Andy Johnson,
(and ills cabinet did not attempt to stay
lils hand,) In violation of all law and all
conscience. I wash my hands of her
blood, for I appealed for her life nnd
declared ' 'the teas not a subject lo mill'
teiry duty, she hail no epaulets upon her
shoulders, she had no spurs upon her
boots, and could be tried legally only by a
civil court," and I belloved, and so ex.
pressed mysolf, that no civil tribunal
would convict her upon such testimony
and hang her by any court whom tho
Lnrd'.s Prayer was' read."
rorgcry of the President's Name
It has eomo out to-night that tho
Prosldent has discovered a forgery of
his name by a person who was anno hit-
cd to a Federal ofllco in tho Itovenuo
Bervlco. Tlio papers aro now in tho
hands of tho President for critical ex
amlnatlon, and your correspondent Is
not at liberty to givo particulars until
tho preliminary investigation of tho
incis i.s eonciuueu.
Wo clip tho above from tlio Phlladel
phiif" Press, and must confess our sur
priso that any man of Republican proc
livities should havo so conducted liinv
self. If It wero n difficult thing for ono
of thnt moral party to obtain an office,
wo should not feel so shocked, but It is
not bo. if tlio "person" was not a ro-
lativo of tlio President, why did not ho
subscribe- for something, or buy sonio
thing for his Excellency nnd thus estab
lish an undoubted right to somo of the
public spoils. Out on such contempt!

Tho Frco Vote,
An election was hold In Bloomsburg,
Columbln county, on Tuesday, tho 12th
Instant, for a Burgess nnd six members
of Council. This election is important
for bolng tho first ever held In tho
United States according to tho plan of
cumulative suffrage advocated by Sen
ator Buckalow, to whoso persistent
efforts It Is duo that so much Interest
mid attention havo been awakened lu
regard to tho need of reform lu elections.
Bloomsburg Is tho home of Senator
Buckalew, and ho has. had tho gratifica
tion of seeing tho principle of tlio "frco
voto" first put in practlco under his
own personal observation.
Tho Columman of Bloomsburg con
tains full particulars of tho election.
Tho Burgess was elected under tho old
majority rulo, but tho bIx members of
Couucll wcro chosen in accordanco with
tho following clauso of tho recent act In
regard to elections In Bloomsburg.
"When six persons aro to bo chosen,
each voter may givo ono voto to each of
six persons, ono voto nnd a half to each
of four, two votes to each of three, threo
votes to each of two, or six votes to
Thero wero two tickets in the field,
tho people's nnd the democratic. Tho
pcoplo's candldato for burgess was
chosen by a majority of eleven votes in
a voto of four hundred and thirty, and
tho democrats carried four of tho six
councllmon. The voto In Bloomsburg
has been very eloso on a strict party
Issue, tho democrats generally carrying
the town by n voto of from twclvo lo
sixteen. As we havo seon,tho opposition
to tho democrats carried tho burgess by
eleven votes. Then, according to tho
cumulative suffrage plan, if adhered lo,
each party was entitled to throo mem
bers of the town council, nnd each could
havo obtalued threo by a proper effort.
At this dlstnnce, It "seems that tho
people's party lost ono candldato by
finesse, when they might havo secured
three, having carried their burgess. It
Is evident that tho system docs not
allbrd much opportunity for tho display
of genius In party trick. Under tho
old majority plan ono party would havo
had all the members of thu town leg
lslature,aiid a largo minority, approach
ing tlio majority In numbers would
have had no representation. By tlio
new system, tho legislature is divided
in strict accordanco with party strength
at tho polls. Tho tyranny ofmajorities
Is modified audallcvlntcd. Every voter
deposits his ballot In tho urn under tho
conviction that It is not lost, it' lio do re
side in a locality where tho majority is
against him. Tlio democrats in Lan
caster county, under thissystcm,would
have ono ov two representatives in the
legislature, and tho republicans of
Berks would havo as mnny. They
would not bo practically disfranchised
so far ns tho choice of members of Con
gress and representatives in tho State
legislature is concerned, as at present
is tho caso. Thus would the interest in
elections of tlio citizens living in a
county where thu majority is largely
against him, bo powerfully stimulated
by giving lilm n motive for oxcrtion.
Both parties would bo compelled to
present their best men as candidates,
under penalty of defeat. Elections
would be purged of much of tho cor
ruptlon which now makes them so ro
pulsive; Above all, Justico would bo
dono to minorities, and tho true spirit
of popular representation preserved.
Tho election in Bloomsburg, in itself
unimportant, is interesting as tho first
under tho just nnd equitable principle i
of tho "frco vote." Morning Patriot.
Easter Sunday, and in fact tho wholo
previous week was much celebrated by
our Lutheran, Iteformcd aud Episcopal
friends. Tho Institution of tho Lord's
supper, tho death of our Saviour nnd
his glorious resurrection aro indeed
worthy to bo remembered, and wo liko
thcto denominations all tho better for
their doing so.
Bloomsburg is beginning to look
much nicer ; trees aro sprouting, the
grass has assumed the soft green which
is so pleasant and beneficial to tho eye.
Tho borough seems proud to bo a bor
ough, to havo a council and a burgess.
Wo hope thnt tho newly elected may
be energetic and efficient and if it is not
premature, wo would humbly suggest,
that soon, very soon, n law may bo
made, to forco tho property holders
to mend tho sidewnlks, or to havo in
stormy nights, liko last Sunday oven
