Tho prnctlcaof giving currency to fulso
stntumcuts ncnlnst public men, not only
Is disgraceful to Journnllsta personally
but completely destroys their power
when they havo truthful statements of
puullo Interest to make. With many
papers anil tho Ilarrlsburg Telegraph
unionist thorn no discrimination
mnilo between honest men and rogues
but nil aro slandered alike, when they
happen to bo not of tho editor's way of
political thinking. To bo denounced
therefore In such papers ha no terrors
for political men, and tho public pays
no moro attention to such denunciation
than it docs to tlio sayings of a common
scold. If newspapers dcslro to presorvo
Ihclrlnfluenco they must deservolt
they must bo truthful and reliable, and
If led into error must havo tho man
hood to correct themselves. All pcoplo
honor tho man who not only refuses to
bo tho author of a Ho but who ulso and
with equal flrmncsj refuses to bo used
as an Instrument to propogato untruth.
All editors, like other people, nro liable
to mistaken, to bo misinformed, to b0'
llovo that which Is untrue, but auy ouo
of them who feels n Just prldo In his
profession, or that degreo of honor
which nlono characterizes a proper man
as distinguished from a blackguard,
will correct any mlstako or error ho
may fall Into whenovor tho fact Is raado
apparent to him,
Tho retraction of tho Ilarrlsburg Tel
egraph, noticed nbovo, would havo
been far moro honorablo to tho editor If
It had been voluntarily made to bo
honest under compulsion Is no Heaven
born virtue, yet Is better than usual for
that paper.
Dcmocrnttc Convention-" Auditor General.
Tho Democratic County Convention
on Monday was pretty well attended,
considering tho season. It will bo ob
served that unanimous Instructions
wero passed In favor of Gen. W. W. II.
Davis, of Bucks county, for Auditor
General. Tho Democracy of Columbia
havo dono themselves credit In this ac
tioncredit in bringing forward n fit
candidate who was not pressing him
self upon tho party, and ono who emi
nently deserves preferment. Tho action
of tho county was spontaneous, not tho
result of effort orlntriguo, nnd wo trust
tho Btato Convention will bo controlled
by similar patriotic motives. Davis has
deserved well of his country on tho bat
tlo field as well as In tho privato rela
tions of life. Ho Is In nil respects a fit
man as n candidato and will prove as
fit as an officer. Ho was tho Democratic
candidato for thesamo offico in 1SG5, nnd
as such did energetic work to secure tho
triumph of hij party work that was
creditable to him and beneficial to tho
party that nominated him. Although
lilsyote tit tho election was a most rc
epcctablo ono, ho was overwhelmed by
tho largo Republican majority of that
day. It is but Justice to a faithful and
able man to give him another trial,
when there Is hopo of success, and when
tho merits of tho candidate will havo
so much to do with securing victory.
Xorth and West llranch
In another column wo glvo a correct
copy of tho act recently passed to Incor
porate tho North and West Branch
Railroad company. It will bo seen
that notwithstanding earnest attempts
wero made to cripplo tho bill by amend
ments designed to favor special locali
ties, it is passed in tho form desired by
tho pcoplo of Columbia county. Tlio
gentlemen named as incorporators aro
already taking tho Inltlatiory stops to
havo subscription books opened with
tho view to tho commencement of Im
mediate operations. Every citizen, es
pecially thoso of IUoomsburg and oth
ers residing along tho lino of tho pro
posed routo, ought to tako a deep inter
est in forwarding this project. Tho road
Is of moro interest to tho county gener
ally than any other that has been pro
posed, ns Its erection would glvo com
pleto railroad accommodations to tho
people south of tho river and nlso to
tho two Fishlngcrcek vallies, as well a3
to Bloomsburg and its vicinity. It is
hoped tho pcoplo Interested will tako
hold of tho project In earnest and drive
it through to successful completion with
hearty energy.
Sherman Itetreatliisr!
Tho whole administration at Wash
Ington nnd lladlcal leaders generally
"camo down'' on Gen. Suehman with
all tho powerof threats and tearful coax
Ing bceauso of his Now Orleans speech,
and they assert that thoy havo Induced
hlni to. say that ho was not correctly re
ported. Ahem! if Gen. Sherman has
been induced to this latter assertion
why dont thoy get him to tell tho pub
lic what he did say at Now Orleans?
Tlicro would bo forco In such an e.xpla
nation as that, but to say simply that
ho was not correctly reported,, without
othar explanation, amounts to Just
nothing. They attempted to get him
to deny tho main assertions In tho
speech but In this thoy utterly failed
Whether tho lladlcal battories can forco
him to retreat entirely from hl.s truthful
poaltiou remains to bo seen.
lladlcal Stato Contention.
This body met at Ilarrlsburg on Wed
nesday, and nominated Dr. David
Stanton, of Beaver county, for Aud
itor General. Tho Convention was
mado up of n majority of the adherents
of Gen. Cameron, nud no appeals by
tho moro modcrato of tho plundering
crowd was sufficient to Induco them to
nomlnato somebody outsldo of tho cor
rupt Treasury ring for Auditor General.
Having Belzed tho Treasury last winter
It was necessary to havo a tool In that
offico to glvo them full swing at tho
stealings. They already havo thoTrcas
ury lu tho hands of an agent of tho ring,
and If they succeed In tho election this
fall they will havo another agent of tho
ring as Auditor General to settlo his
accounts! There will then not bo tho
least check to prevent thorn from gorg.
lug themselves upon tho peoplo's money
to their heart's content. Such Is lladlcal.

prove to bo tho merest bogus coinage,
Issued from that mint of invention, tho
brains of needy, ambitious lladlcal pol

Ku-Klux outrage, and shipped to the
North and n market. Nono of tho ex
planatory circumstances aro given, but
old Sam is decorated with an extra coat
of black paint, In order to, tho mero
certainly, imposo upon tho peoplo of
this section. Not long since, a report
was telegraphed from Ilalelgh, North
Carolina, that a band of Ku-Klux ruf
fians had maltreated sotno persons In
that vicinity, and that soldiers had ar
rested several members of tho gang.
Tho truth of this case Is that threo
young men, not disguised, visited a
shanty wlicro white) women nnd negro
men wero herding together like brutes,
to tho scandal of tho neighborhood, nnd
assaulted tomo of tho parlies. For this
thoy woro arrested. This was no Ku
Klux outrage. It was only a dupllcato
or tlio common talo of popular Indig
nation and riot against thoconcublnago
of black men nnd white women. Now
York, OhloIiunesotn.and overy other
Stato, no matter how woll-T)ehaved, has
lurnlsneu examples of similar Intoler
anco of such an association of tho two
races, and may tlo so again, to-day or

been chronicled in tho North.

The Berks county Democracy hold
their annual county meeting at Read
ing, on Tuesday. Resolutions wcrondop
ted denouncing tho Reconstruction and
Ku-Klux acts; endorsing tho speech of
Senator Schurz, nt St. Loulsr denoun
cing tlio "enormous freight charges of
tho Reading Railroad Company to resi
dents in this county" as n "gross viola
tion of tho Company's charter j" and
recommending as n remedy tho forma
tion of a labor union of working men,
business men and farmers within tho
Democratic organization, to opposo "all
unfair and unjust aggressions of capi
tal." Hon. Sharon Tyndale, has been
murdered in tho public streets of Spring
field, tho homo of Lincoln. Will General
Grant, who lately asked and got an act
passed, to glvo him power "to effectually
securo life, liberty and property in all
parts of tho Utiltd States," now over
throw tho Radical Stato Government
of Illinois? Ho did not Intcrfero in
Pennsylvania, when, threo months ago,
tho Radical majority In tho Houso be
stowed an ottlcoof profit and trust upon
n man concerned in the murder of tho
gnllant Union soldier, Colonel Riddle.
But If acts llko theso should occur at tho
South, they will bo greedily seized as
pretexts for establishing bayonet gov
ernment. Wo think there is no oxcuso
for it In any civilized community, In
time of peace. It is tho resourco of
despots and military usurpers, and
never was a euro for any soclal evlls.
The repeal of tho law which provided
that tho first session of each Congress
should commence on tho 1th of March
Instead of the first Monday of Decem
ber, was wiso and proper. Thero never
was any good reason for tho chango of
tlio old established rulo. It was ono of
tho tomporary devices of tho Republi
can party, of which tho country bus had
moro than enough. It sorved tliolr turn
during tho tlmo of Andrew Johnson,
but was found to boasourcoof Incon
vonlonco. Still tho Republicans of tho
Houso wero disposed to perpctuato It.
It was only repealed by a majority of
one, with nil tho Democrats voting In
tlio affirmative Wo hopo tho tlmo may
soon coino when tho last ono of tho shifts
nnd temporary expedients of tho Radi
cals shall bo wiped from tho statuto
That dulrUM sovereignties could cxiti un
der one government, emanating torn the
same people, was a phenomenon in the politi
cal KoMxchlch the what ttalrsnun in 'Eu
rope could not comprehend; and of its prac
ticability many in our mencountry entertained
the most serious doubts. Thus far the
friends of liberty have had great cause of
triumph in thcsuiccss of the pnnciphs vpon
which our government rests. Hut all must
admit that the purity and permanency of
this system depend on its faitlfid adminls
tration. The States and the Ecdcral govern
ment have their respective orbits within tchich
each must revoke. If either cross the sphere
of the other the harmony of the system w de
stroyed and its'strcngth is impaired. It would
be as gross vsurpatlon on the part of the
Federal government to interfere tciVi State
rights, by an exercise of powers not ddegated,
as U would be for a State to interpose Us au
thority against a law of the Union. Fcdcr

Tho lu'llon of thu Radical Legislature
In defeating tho will of tho pcoplo, and
declaring Jewell Governor, Is ono of
tho most daring abuses of power yet
perpetrated outsldo of Washington.
Tho purpoio to commit this fraud nnd
to consuinmnto tho result was clearly
foreshadowed from tho hour In which
tho returns elected Knolish. Tho only
question was, how could It best bo nc.
compllshed? First, It was proposed to
glvo Jewell votes lu Cheshire, which
had been rejected. As that plan would
not work, then tho expedient of reopcib
lng tho boxes In tho Fourth Ward of
Now Ilnvon was adopted. And when
it was found that tho ballots gnvo Jew
El.LlOO less than was returned, by count,
Ing two packages of CO each as 100 each,
thoy fell upon tho despcrnlo resource of
going out on tho highways and gather
Ing In enough swift witnesses to swear
they had voted tho "Radical ticket'
not for Jewell, but tho ticket.
Although, oven with this hnrd swear
ing, tho number of 100 was not mado
out, still tho Radical candidato was
elected by tho Radical Lcglslnturo, Just
as members of .Congress havo been
elected by tho Radical Houso of Rep
resentatlvcs, whllo they wero In n ml
norlty at homo of many thousands.
It Is worthy of nolo, tjiat lu tho pro
tended Investigation, no Democratic
witnesses were examined or wero allow
ed nny part In tho proceedings. It was
allfjmrc, nnd against tlio constitu
tion and laws of tho State, which pro.
vldo tho formal modo of declaring nud
contesting elections. Tho wholo course
of tho majority, from tlio beginning to
tho cm! of this business, has been revo
lutionary, nnd, In that respect, consls,
tent with tho conduct of tho Radical
party hero and everywhere. They de
termined to gel possession of tho Gov
ernorship, by any fraud, however bold,
and nny violence, howovcr extreme.
This scandalous outra''o has already
produced n great rc-actlon In popular
sentiment ,Lan easier In tclligcnecr.

Tho Treaty of the High Commission
has ono peculiarity which Is worthy of

As tho hours woro on thoslreots wero

Bound to Exercise Care. Per
sons aro apt to bo too careless in re
gard to the manner in which they sign
notes, checks, or legal papers, and tho
manner in which they nro filled. Somo
think, too, tho responclbllity or all
changes In such documents falls upon
tho person receiving tho paper; but
tho following decision puts tho matter
in a now light, and shows that thoso
slgnlngnny such obligatlonsaro morally
as well as legally hold for tho exerclso
of till tho caution they can use. Let
this decision bo a warning to nil par
ties: A man drew n noto promising to pay
ono hundred dollars. Ho used a print
ed rorm, but did not closo up tho blank
dovolcd to dollars, nnd after It passed
from his hands and became negotiable,
paper, somebody Inserted "and fifty"
after tho ono hundred. Tho noto thus
nltercd got Into tho hands of an Inno
cent parly, who presented, it to tho
drawer, but payment was refused. Suit
was brought nnd tho Supremo Court de
cided that tho maker of tho noto was
liablo for Its full face, becauso, through
negligence, ho had not drawn n lino bo
tweon tho written word "hundred" nnd
tho printed word "dollars." Any tes
timony tho drawer might offer to estab
lish the fact thathogavoa noto for only
ono hundred dollars, must go for noth
ing, as "thero was nothing on tho fuco
of tho noto showing that it had been
altered," Evldenco of un alteration on
tho faco of tho noto would havo chang
ed tho rase. Let this decision boa lesson
to nil drawers or promissary notes. No
ono can bo too careful in such matters.
Lutherans. Tho Interior says:
"Tlio Lutherans aro rapidly becoming
ono of tho largest religious bodies in
this country, and If immigration from
tho Lutheran countries continues at tlio
present rate, they nro likely to bo tho
most numerous of nil denominations.
They now claim n membership of four
hundred thousand, ranking, perhaps
fourth among Protestant churches in
tho United States.
I probably have as good means of informa
tion as most persons in regard to what is
called the Ka hlux, and am perfectly satisfied
that the thing it greatly over-estimated ; und
if the Ku-hlux bills were kept out of congress
and the army kept eit their legitimate duties,
there arc enough good and true men in all
the southern states to put down all Ku-ltlux or
other bands of marauders." GENERAL
