TitH Democratic conferee! of Nor
thumberland nntl Montour unanimous
ly nomluntod Ehen a. Scott, of Han
bury, for President Judgo of Hint Judi
cial district. Mr. Scott la n young mnn
of lino legal nblllty nnd gencrnl attain
ments, and ofsound and discriminating
Judgment, unblemished reputation nnd
of moro than common natural ability.
Objection Is inado to hint that ho Is too
young. Thoso making It do not seem
to rellect that In nil countries havlog a
history, tho lawyers who wero callod to
the bench whon still young becatno tho
must distinguished, most profound nud
boat Judges. In our national history
wo need only refer to Judgo Srouv ns
ltu example, nnd In tho recent history
of our Stato to tho two Woodwards,
Judgos Black, Thompson, GiutSR.nnd
uiaiiy others. Of tho Judges now on
tho bench who nro acquitting thorn
solves with mostcrcdlt wo can confident
ly point to tho young men amongst
them, or whom Mayer of Clinton,
Boss of Bucks, Williams of Tioga,
und others, aro bright examples,
Blpa and maturo JudguionWmd nbun-
daut expericueo nro to bo respected, but
for hard nnd constant work tho vigor
of youth Is demanded. Young men
havo' a reputation to acquire, thoir na
tural and proper ambition leads them
to mako ovory effjrt to acquit them
selves with proflcloncy and honor to
excel in discharging particular duties,
or at least to rank with tho bost of their
cjtemporarlcs or predecessors nnd if
men of ordinary advantages they
usually succeed. In tho selection of
Judges It Is therefore peculiarly proper
that young men should bo taken. They
seldom err materially as to tho law, and
when thoy do thcro Is little difficulty in
correcting them by appeal to tho Su
premo Court. Thoir energy leads thorn
to disposo of tho ordinary business of
tho Courts with much moro rapidity
than old stagers can bo got to do It, and
altogether thoy aro tho most proQtablo
and satisfactory Judges. Thoy have
moro humanity, uro less givon to old
saws and old absurdities, and to worn
out nud useless theories, than old inon,
nud moro thoroughly partako of tho
spirit of tho ago they aro called on to
Judgo than old stags just ready to shuf
lio off tho mortal coll- Youth,vlgor and
energy, combined with learning and in
tegrity, aro tho elements that mako up
intellectual powcr,and aro the very forco
necessary to mako a good Judgo. Mr,
Scott Alls tho" requirement and wo
liopo to seo him elected.
The I'rolilullloiilsls.
Tho loading spirits ot thu Prohibition
canto nro much divided and exercised
Just now becamo of tho iiniiiluitlnn or
strnlghmit candidates by their p iny ior
Stato ollVcrs. Heretofore whatever lius
been dona by them In a political way
was Intended directly to bcncllt tho op
ponents of tho Democracy. Their lead
ers seem to think that such will not bo
tho result now. A portion of them
never had nny other purposo than to
mako n diversion that would abstract
votes from Democratic candidates.
Among theso aro men Hkb "llov.'1
Pennel Coomde, who to other motives
add tho lnccnllvo of fat nnd easy living
at tho expense of their moro sincere
brethren. Coomhe Is n bitter Badical
and can seo no virtue In nny schcrao of
Prohibition or other form of organized
tomporanco movement that docs not
tond directly to glvo aid to tho llndlcal
party, nnd thcro Is n consldorablo class
of which ho Is a typo.
nut lucre aro sincere ami earnest pro
hibitionists. That legislation attempt
ing to control men's nppotltcs will re
ceivo no favor at tho hands of tho Dem
ocratic party Is vory sure, for that party
holds all such legislation ns being for
eign to tho lcgttlmato purposes of gov
ernment, nnd tho cxperlenco of two
thousand years has proved It vain.
That tho Bopubllcaus uso It only nsa
political foot-ball Is rendered clear by
tho fact that although that party has
controlled all our legislation for tho last
ten years, It ha douo nothing In tho
way of prohibitory liquor legislation,
and It does not daro to do bo, oven if it
had such desires, which It has not. If
men want prohibition, therefore, and
are In earnest in attempts to establish
It, thoy havo no other rccourso than to
form a party of their own and noun
nato and voto for their own candidates.
This Is so clear that neither argument
or Illustration is required to demon
strate Its exact truth. Tho present
movement, then, is n touchstone to bo
applied to all professors of prohibition
to test their slncorlty. Truo, advocates
of tho doctrlno may esteem other Issues
of superior Importnnco and therefore
support candidates with referenco to
thoso issues, to tho exclusion and con
tempt of prohibition. Hut thoso who
profess to think that prohibition is most
important of nil Issues now pending
havo no other course to tako than to
support tho candidates nominated by
that party. Not to do this will prove
Insincerity and hypocrlcy in them.
Tlio Democratic Stato Executive- Committee.
Tho complaint is general that tho
DotnocratlcState Executive Committoo
is inefflciont. Of courso tho direct re
sponsibility rests upon tho chairman (
but wherever it rests, moro efficient ac
tion is domanded. Information should
bo laid before tho public of tho immonso
quantities of public lands that aro voted
to railroad companies by tho Badical
Congresses, o'f thoir division afterwards
among the members who voto for tho
schemes; of tho immenso fortunes ac
quired in brief periods by Badical Con
gressmen and offlco-noiuers j 01 tne
amount of oxtravagant and injustlfla
blo appropriations made by Congress ;
of tho amount of Federal defalcations
and extravagant fees and salaries that
aro paid; tho amount of money annu
ally received by tho government that is
unaccounted for or squandered ; an ox
position of tho number and cost of use
less offlco-holders ; of tho amounts ab-
' etracted from the people through the
National Banks; tho amounts paid
ttnanclal agents for negotiating loans,
bo entirely unnecessary ; of tho value
of presents received publicly by tho
President and tho valuo of tho favors
ho bestowed upon tho donatory there
for; and numerous other abuses perpe
trated by tho Federal administration
uot necessary for us to enumerate.
Nor should tho corruptions of tho
Federal courts bo loft to ba only talked
of occasionally by acountry nowspapor,
but their doings should be carefully
looked Into and fully exposed.
State affalrsshould also bo thoroughly
sifted nnd exposed to public view, even
if an occasional Democrat got a bloody
noso in tho operation.
Fact3 susceptlblo of proof in regard
to theso things and other enormities is
what is wanted. Neither editors or
political speakers can obtain them short
of an cxponso thoy cannot afford, but a
State committee can.
Nervous appeals and spasmodic ox
posurcsof single frauds, woll enough in
their way, aro not efficient. Tho Dona
ocrutic party is a party of reason and
tobcr rcflection,and it is only from such
people that It can obtain converts and
theso need facts. Tho fanatical, or per
tons moved by sudden oxcltemcnt
naturally belong to tho other sldo, and
will generally remain there.
We appeal to the committco to goto
work nt substantial facts. Tho com
plaint wo mako lias been repeated to us
by prominent men from different parts
of tho Stato, nnd must bo hcedod if wi
would obtain certain victory. Tho fate
of tho Nation is at stako and no stone
should bo left unturned nud especially
the huge rock that would arrest tho
Bndlcal career.
The l'lnlge.
Tho following persDns havo becu
named for nomination by tho noxt
Democratic County Convention. All
who are announced In this list aro pledg
ed to abido by the decision of the Dem
ocratic Convention. ,4
This pledge was subscribed to by C.
B. Brockway, 13. J. M'Honry, Stephen
Polio, Jacob S. Evans, Wm. Shaffer, S.
C. Shlve, John K. Grotz, James Lake,
David Demott, Irani Derr, William
Lamon, Illram F. Evcrltt nnd James
Brysou, all of whom wero candidates
for nomination before tho lato Demo
cratic county convention. In giving
publicity to this plcdgo nnd presenting
It to tho Democracy of Columbia county
as a genulnoand rellablo document, tho
editor of tho Columbian becamo a par
The Hi an IlniboM-lrmont.
Tho Evans embezzlement Is not n
thing to bo charged only to tho Blnglo
KPoiiudrel who Is directly responsible
for tho theft. It was Gov. Geary's
duty totseo that ho.mndo.lils reports ns
required by tho agreement; it was mo
duty of Auditor Goncinl IIAUtiiani't
and Treasurer Maukk to hnvo tho
money promptly paid Into tho Treasury
when collected, nnd of Attorney Gen
eral Brewster to prosecute if this was
not done. Tho wholo fratornity of Stale
officials aro therefore culpablo and leave
themselves open to tho suspicion of be
ing concerned In tho frnud, .
And further, It Is believed that tho
wholo claim of thrco millions, or very
nearly tho wholo, against tho Federal
Government was groundless or fraudu
lent, and was allowed only becauso of n
resort todlrectandunmltlgated bribery.
Tho Badical officers nt Washington,
tlierefore,nronlsocrlmlnally Implicated.
Tho claim could not bo nllowed thcro
without tho knowlcdgo or Senators
Cameron and Scott, and by their
direct approbation. Everybody familiar
with tho filching propensities of tho
former well knows that ho could uot
permit such a hugo robbery to go on
without cither himself or his tools hav
ing n hand In It and sharing tho profits.
Tho wholo batch of Badical officials In
this Stnto, therefore, nro as directly re
sponsible and culpablo as Evans him
self. It Is by such means as this that tho
Badlcals ralso such Immenso sums to
carry elections, to mako converts by
bribery, nnd to create divisions and dis
tractions In tho Democratic party by
purchasing apostates to opposo nomina
tions. Wo do not-sny that all tho lead
ers who nro caught lu this trap are so
purchased, but slitfply that It is n com
mon trick for Badical leadors to do that
thing. This Evans embezzlement, and
similar transactions, show how they
obtain tho money to do It. The pletho
ric rogues do not supply tho money
from their own pockets but they steal
It from thopcoio, nnd it is dono lu
order to enablo them to steal moro.
Will not tho people nrouso and put n
stop to this wholesalo robbery '.' Tho
way to do It Is to voto tho Democratic
ticket, and especially to elect n Demo
cratic Auditor General to watch tho
Badical Treasurer. Tho facts of tho caso
show that all tho prominent Badical
offlco-holders in tho Stato nro directly
or indirectly responsible for tho theft.
And this caso Is only one of many cases.

In Its Hist Issuo after tho Dcmocrntlc

can gavo currency to an absurd false
hood to tho effect that Mr. Shaffer,
tho Domocrnllc nomlnco for Commis
sioner, had bribed dolegatcs to voto for

oftho chargo. Upon authority of Mr.
Shaffer himself wo promptly denied
tho nssortion nnd called for tho proof.
Now tho llepubilcan attempts to escapo
from Its libel by saying that No. 1 had

somebody hnd said that such an offer
had been mado or would bo accepted I
Verily, on old wives talol
Tho matter now plainly stands thus s
tho llepubilcan gavo currency to tho
libel! It Is branded as false; tlio editor
said ho could glvo proof; ho Is chal
lenged to produce it. Then ho must
cither substantiate tho chargo, retract
tho slander upon an honest man, or
stand before tho public n branded cal-
umnlalor. Knowing tho chargo to bo
false, wo look to him to sustain tho dig
nity of tlio press and an honornblo man
hood and frankly retract it.
Wo tnko this occasion to say that any
such charge, usalnst any candidate or
delegate, is falsi:. Jf any man makes
such assertion, wo chnllcngo him to
tho proof, with tho nssuranco that if
any candidato can bo proven guiny ms
namo will bo promptly taken from tho
ticket. Of lato years It has becomo so
common to utter this libel with Impu
nity that It Is high tlmo n stop was put
to It, or Its authors bo hold to both mor
al and legal responsibility.
Wo aro rather fond of honorablo po
litical warfare, but spurn tho low and
dirty practlco of giving currency to per
sonal libels or falsehoods, and wo always
feel humiliated to bo compelled to an
swer them. Wo shall therefore meet,
them In a very peremptory manner.
Tin: European powers aro playing an
Immenso game, to preserve an equilib
rium of power. An alliance between
Franco and Bussla is said to bo on tho
carpet, if nny authority lu I rauco could
bo depended upon. In any caso it
would resemblo an nlllanco between nn
clciihant and n vanquished tiger. An
nlllanco between united Germany and
Austria nnd Italy is formally announc
ed. Tho latter could probably hold all
Europo nt bay.
Franco Is yet a slumbering volcano.
Thiers and tho Assembly will cither
fall through their own divisions and
excltablo factiousness or will eooii ba
flying for their lives. Tho former now
wants to bo mado President for thrco
years by the Assembly, but Its power Is
dcnlod. When loo lato his wishes will
probably bo ' complied with. Tho
friends of tho Empire demand a popu
lar election.
The cholera prevails In many parts of
Secretary Boutwell's " Syndicato "
of European Bankers havo nt length,
and after enormous expense, suc
ceeded in placing about $70,000,000 of
tho United States flvo per cent. loan.
Tho lour nnd four nnd n half per cent,
loans were with drawn, there being no
takers. Nearly nil tho European coun
tries borrow any amount of money they
want at from threo to four per cent.,
without extra expenditure, nnd even
tho loan of revolutionary nnd crushed
Franco is readily taken at six per ccntj
Tho Immenso cost of negotiating our
loan exceeds tho annual interest pnld
by England on a similar amount. Tho
Badical bunglers at Washington pay
the bankers a largo bonus for taking tlio
loan at the rates named, after feather
ing their own nests atn princely rato.
The Democrats or Montour and
Northumberland counties havo nomi
nated Thomas Chalfant of tho for
mer, nnd A. J. Gallagher, of tho
latter for Assembly. Tho district is
strongly Democratic and will' no doubt
elect tho nominees by largo majorities,
notwithstanding somo local disaffection
that is spoken of as to tho latter. If
there over was a timo when all Demo
crats should unlto upon their nominees
and present a tolid wall to their politi

Tlio Treasurer Nomination.
To tiik Editor or the Colum
iiians Your energetic support of the
Democratic; candidates in this county
deserves a hearty approval from overy
slncoro member of our party, without
regard to what Ills preferenco wero
among candidates before tlio nomina
tions wero mndo. Although my sym
pathies wore In favor of somo of tho
candidates who wero not nominated, I
acknowledge tho duty of supporting
nominations nnd bcliovo It to bo wrong
in prlnclplo for n man who has submit
ted Ids namo to n convention to run
against tho ticket, Tiio caso must bo
very extraordinary Indeed, which will
Justify or exctiso such conduct.
In this frame of mind I do notrecolvo
with any favor tt circular which has
been sent to mo .by a volunteer candi
dato for tho olllco of County Treasurer,
in which ho complains that ho was not
nominated instead of Mr. Lamon, nnd
says that ho will run against tho ticket,
which means that ho will beat It If ho
can with tlio help of Bcpubllcan votes.
And what Is his excuse for taking this
courso? His namo was published as n
candldnto for nomination under n
plcdgo that he would nbldo by tho do
clslon of the convention, nnd his friends
supported him nt tlio delegato elections
In view of that plcdgo and without nny
expectation that ho would break It.
They may well bo surprised If not In
dignant that ho puts them ns well as
himself Into a falso position in tills
matter, aud certainly fair play to all
parties concerned requires that ho
should keep his word.
But ho says in his circular that cer
tain delegates in Convention ought to
havo voted for him and did not do it,
which would bo bad enough if it wore
truo but still would not Justify him In
breaking his word. But It Is not true,
and In order that all fair, honest citizens
may understand how falso It Is, I shall
stato tho facts. I bellos'o firmly in tho
disposition of tlio great mass of tho
pcoplo to do right, that is to act Justly,
and In tho policy of full und careful
explanation of tho truth to them In
times or contest.
Tho following was tho result of tho
delegato elections, so far as districts,
considered as such, wero concerned :
For Lamon: Borwlck, Brlarceeok,
Centre, Scott, East Bloomsburg, West
Uloomsburg, Mt. Pleasant, Madison,
Montour, Franklin, Boaringcrcek, N'
Conyngham, S. Conyngliam and Con
For Everitt: Sugarloaf, Benton,
Jackson, Greenwood, Pino, Hemlock,
Orange, Milllln, Beaver, Main, Cain
wlssa and Locust 12.
Fishing Creek was tt tic, each candi
dato receiving 103 votcson instructions
Thcro can bo no question as to a sin
glo ono of tho nbovo districts unless It
bo Mndi&on nnd there on Instructions
voted, Lamon had 10 nud Everitt 0.
In any caso it is undcniablo that La
mon carried tho county by districts.
It is nlso truo that ho had a clear ma
jority upon tho popular voto in tho
county taking all tho instructions ro
ported and tho voto for delegates in
Berwick nud soveral other districts
from which instructions woro not ro
ported. Lastly, In Convention ho had
tho votes of 3"i delegates to 32 for his
opponent so that in fact he hail
majority of delegates, a majority ojmlis
tricts and a majority of the popular vote,
and his nomination stands sanctioned
by overy test that can bo applied to It.
But besides this, on looking nt tho
Everitt circular it will bo seen that by
his own showing wo inu3t como to tho
samo conclusion ns to tho nomination.
Ho claims that ho should havo received
tho votes of thrco unlnstructed dele
gates from Locust and ono from Pino
becauso ho had tho most votes in thoso
districts, But this plan of correcting
tho Convention voto will not answer
his purposo. For if it is used to glvo
urn four delegato votes In Locust and
Bine it must nlso bo used to tnko away
from him thrco votes In Madison and
Centre, and ho is still left in a minority
on tho Convention voto. Lamon had
CI votes in Centre, and Everitt but
20, yet ono of tho Centre delegates vot
ed for Everitt. In Madison also La
mon had tho mo3t votes on instructions
yet two of tlio Madison delegates voted
for Everitt, a3 thoy had a right to do
because they were not Instructed by a
majority of the voters icho elected them
On exactly that very samo ground tho
Locust nnd Pino lelegato3 nbovo mon
tioncd had a right to voto for Lamon,
whilo tho McIIenry delegato from
Centro also voted right becauso a ma
jority oi tho voters who elected ifi
wero for Everitt, though a mroorlty
of tho township was tho other way.
All tho dolegatcs from thoso four town
ships had a perfect right to voto as

Mr. Lamon was therefore regularly

not but denloro tho inexorable necessi

" all tho pomp and circumstances of glo

tlio direst calamity mat couiu havo ho-

Hut when Leo, Johnson, and Boauro

tho Federal forces they plucked up
ircsh courago nnd ucieruuneu to proso

It can. however, bo said of Dr. Stan
ton, as it can of but fuw military heroes
of equal prowcs-satid renown, that when
his tcar-dlmmcd oyo rested upon tho
war-worn forms oi our soldiers, no nan
tho proud satisfaction or knowing that
ho never led them Into danger In his
life. But whilo I could dwell forever
with Increaslnir ranturos unon this do-
llgiittul theme, I could not withhold n
fitting tribute to his equally brilliant
mul extraordinary caroor ns a poiui

from tho hourot his mrtn to mo prosem

collego youth ho was a moro brilliant
exemplification or tho old. lino Whig

In nil tho gorgeous sheen of a thous

comprehensive creed of the Abolition
disunionlsts found in him n noisy friend.
In 1 SCO tho machlno turned again, and
tho dim outimo ot tho liiuncai party
fell feoblv unon his vision. In 180S oc
curred another revolution of tlio pro-

That Dr. Stanton over meant to kill
oven n rebel, nobody nssqrts, and It
would bo difficult to provo that ho ever

was that of a contractor and loplolly.
Tho tltlo of Colonel which tho Bcpubll

merely from tho fact that ho draw tho
pay of a Colonel as compensation for
his services as medical contractor.

Whilo McCandles was battering away
in all tho severe engagements of tlio
Pennsylvania Bosorves, Stanton moro
wisely kept at a safe distanco in an Ohio
hospital. Though there wero no dan
ceroid rebels there good living was
plenty, and shouting loyalty there was
a much lovelier business than lighting
