The documents referred to nro worth
reading for tho Information they con
Wo last week conled from tho Lan
caster Intelligencer nn ablo artlclo on tho
subject of tho next Democratic nomlna
tion for Auditor General, which, wo
observe, is copied and approved by the
Democratic papers generally. That ar
tlclo demanded tho nomination of a
candidate of unspotted character, of ac
knowledged Integrity nnd undoubted
ability one who would confer honor
upon tho offlco and upon tho party that
elected him. Such a candidate would
insuro success, and if our Stnto Conven
tion havo senso nnd patriotism it will
nomlnato Just such a candidate.
The fact that at such a time any man
would press his own nomination ought
to bo sufficient to set him asido. Such
conduct at onco establishes that self
glorification is held by such individual
as paramount to party success, and a
man who proffers himself in such an
emergency thereby proves his unworth
Iness and general unfitness. Let all
such be thrown aside, nnd that man se
lected who can give greatest strength to
tho party. Thero need bo no inquiry
whether such a man will accept a pro
per man nominated undor such circum
stances will of courso not decline.
Tho Intelligencer well says that such
a candidate would add ten thousand
votes to tho party, and of that fact wo
can not conccivo a reasonable doubt.
While no man is fit for tho office or for
a candidate who will scramblo for tho
nomination, no ono that Is really lit will
declino it if tho nomination Is confer
ed upon him for tho reason that tho In
terests of his party demand it. Ono
who accepts on such grounds alone will
command tho confidence of tho public
to such extent as to secure him hund
reds of votes that would never bo cast
for a seeker of tho placo. Let tho Dem
ocratic press, therefore, continuo to
appeal to tho delegates to cast asldo all
selfish aspirants and select tho fittest
nnd strongest candidato that can bo ob
tained. A Democratic victory In Penn
sylvania this fall Is of incalculable im
portance and every other object ought
to bo merged Into tho grand ono of suc
cess. The Scranton Troubles.
In another column wo glvo two ac

Although tho statements of tho latter

they are probably nearly truthful, as

upon n tolorably fair version.

to this result. Tho mcro actors in tho
assault mado aro but slightly to blnmo
in comparison with tho leaders whoso

havo. Both ought to bo punished, but
tho latter most soverely.
Such outrages and kindred acts of
'violence and contempt of law and au
thorlty are but tho legltlmato results of
Iladical example. From President down

Tho placo to commenco reform is at tho

to do this is to voto tho Democratic

No Armed Interference with Our Stato
Senator Turner lias introduced Into
tho Stato Legislature a bill, which pro
vides that elections for members of Con
gress shall hereafter bo held In Penn
sylvania on Tuesday after tho first Mon
day in Novomber. Tho object of tho
law Is to defeat tho purposes of tho ad
ministration at Washington, In their
design to lntlmldato voters by placing
i eueral soldiers nt tho polls. Tho mero
threat of such n thing is nn outrago
which ought to b(5 indignantly resented
by every Pennsylvanlan. Wo are per
fectly competent to manago our Stato
elections without nny interference from

will no doubt pass tho bill promptly,
and It ought not to meet with a sluglo
objection in tho Houso. Tho question of

in connection with such an important
matter. If tho Federal government In

bounacn duty of our Legislature to
chango tho tlmo for holding such elec

him their candidato, with tho tacit un
derstanding that ho should speedily ro-
sign and accept a Boat In tho United
States Senate, leaving tho carpet-bag
Lieutenant-Governor to rulo in his
stoad. But to tlio Intense disgust of tho
wholo hordo of carpet-baggers, Alcorn
commenced appointing natives of Miss
issippi to fill tho offices. Immonso ap
pointing power had been purposely con
ferred upon tho Governor with tho ox
pectatlon that tho carpet-baggers would
profit by it. Of courso thoy wcro in
tensely disgusted, when thoy found Al
corn using tho power for tho benoilt of
natives Instead of for tho purposo of

Tlio Scranton Republican gives tho
following account of tho riot :
Yesterday was a day of lawlessness
nnd not, in sad contrast, witn tno usual
observances of holy day, Good Friday.
Early in tlio morning a largo mob, com
posed of W. B. A. men ot Hydo Park
and neighborhood went to tho coal
works of Messrs. Hill & Fellows,
and drove tho men who uro employed
thoro from tho promlios and stopped tho
works, threatening to kill ovory "d d
blackleg" who attempted to rosuino
work. About tho samo time another
body of tho same cIum of men proceed
ed to tho Council mine, a fuw miles
down tho river, where tho snmo scenes
of intimidation, threats and lawlessness
wero enacted, und tho workmen forced
to join their ranks. A body composed
principally of tho samo men, number
ing nbout 000, noxt marched to "No, 5,"
L. I. & O. Company's works, whore,
nfter heaping curses and nbuso upon nil
employed in tho initio, thoy demanded
that tho miners throw down their tools
and como out, nnd after soveral hours
parley tlio demand was complied with
and work ceased. At about 8o' clock lu
tho morning tlio rioters commenced
assembling at tho Tripp Slopo (wliero
an attempt had been madoon Thursday
to stop tho works,) nnd in soveral hours
tlio mob had increased to nearly a thous
and. Hero tlio most Infamous and mur
derous outrages wero committed ; out
rages so brutal and unmanly that nono
but base nnd cowardly wretches would
havo committed them. After boino of
tlio men attempted to leave tho works
nnd proceed to their homos thoy wero
set upon with pistols, stones nud clubs,
nud injured In such a brutal manner
that tho lives of somo nro despaired of,
nnd thoy may oven now bo dead. Du
loss Moore was pursued by Fix men
nnd escnped with his life by fording tlio
river. Ho wns repeatedly stoned but
kept tlio villains at bay with his revol
ver. His brother Thomas did not
escapo so fortunately. Ho was over
taken and beaten and kicked In n most
bhocklng manner. Ho would undoubt
edly havo been killed on tho spot, had
not still another brother William
Moore fortunately como upon tho
scene, and by a few well directed blows
scattered tho assailants. Tho injured
man was taken to his homo nud bis
wounds drowsed by Dr. Roiierts. Mar
shal Suzeh was nlso torrlblv beaten nnd
cut in tliu back, legs nud head. Iio was
cared for by Dr. Hollister, Another
man, whoso name wo could not learn
was shot In tho face, and Is now in,a
vuiy ciuicm condition perunps ticau.
After clearinir out tho works tho crowd
marched to tho Notcli to attack tlio
works of Sir. Ed. Rock, (tho breaker
at tho Olark shaft,) who had a few men
at work, Tho samo cowardly and bru
tal scenes wero hero repeated, with tho
addition that tho gates wero hoisted
and tho pockets emptied of nil tho coal
In them, Tlio rioters (hen proceeded to
tlio old Rockwell breaker which thoy
fired nnd burned to tho ground.
Early in tho morning, or during
Thursday night, tho rioters mado a raid
upon tho coal works of Mr. Joseph
Church, leased to Messrs, Morris &
Weeks. Hero thoy tore up the track
from tho slope to tho screen houso, und
blew up tlio moulh of tlio slopo. Tho
destruction hero is complete, and it will
tako a long tlmo to repair the damaso.
Tho wholooffalr wasovldently well un
derstood nnd deliberately planned by
tlio Ku-Klux branch of tho W. II. A.
Tho plan was to permit no minor, or
any ono else, to cut a pound of coal for
any prlco, for nny ono, or for any pur
pose. They will find that tho very end

murder, violence and outrago Is boyond
