We surrender a largo portion of our

cratic and Republican papers rolativo
to llio noniinntlon of Mr. Uuckalow for
Governor. His nomination excites un
usual enthusiasm all over thoState.and
carrios doubt to tho breasts of our op-
ononis. Let us in Columbia County
not disgrace ourselves by petty divi
sions, and personal quarrels slneo this
ilgh honor has been conferred upon us,
but by activo, arduous work aid in
making Chaiu.e.s R. Bucicai.kw tho

Mr. Phillips, tt member of tho Dan vlllo
Council, who favored tho system, told
usthatflOO, had been offered n certain
editor of that place to favor tho plan,
ana the matter btrcamo so notorious
that tho comnanv had to disavow the

tho Jlepuoiican has received its $100, but
it is earning it by weokly advocacy of

probably, to tho vory fact stated by

Mr. W. O. Holmes, freight nnd llnket
ngont nt Uloomsburg for tho abovo cor
porntlon, takes oxceptlon to tho charges
preferred against tho management of
tho road, in tho Coiajmman, nnu
furnishes the Republican with what ho
facotiously calls a "raw facta." Ho ad
mlts that tho accommodations glvon
tho pooplo on tho occasion of Barnum's
show in Danvlllo was not first-class, but
explains that Barntim had engaged nil
tho decent cars, and that "tho Company
gavo tho pcoplo tho best that could bo
procurtd nt tho timo." "Tho host'
tho Company had for passengers, pay
Ing full faro, was a lot of dirt cars with
rough hemlock boards for seats. In tho
samo breath with tills admission Mr.
Holmes says that thero is "no road In
tho slate which affords better nccom
modallons for passenger travel or for
freight business." Docs Mr. Holmes
moan seriously to say that there is a rail
road In tho Stato doing a business of
over four dollars a year which could bo

von I of a circus nnd compelled to trans
port ladies and gentlemen on dirt cars'
Hecauso if ho does ho will excuso tho
sensible portion of this community, not
deriving their incomo from tho L. A 1J.

further asserts that this Co. uses tho
same rates for freight as tho other roads
In tho Slate. Lotussco: FromShlck

freight on coal nmounts to 1 cents per

the Co. to bring to Rloomsburg; tlioy

to Pittsburg tho charges would havo
amounted to something over $10011
Thero aro yot other cases in our posses
sion which wo might enumerate, but
it Is needless. Tho instances nro suffi
cient to corroborate fully the chargo
mado in tho Coi.umiuan that "the
freights aro simply outrogous." And
yot at theso oxecssivo rates, tho cars
are often furnished grudgingly or not
nt all and tho Iron Company havo ab
solutely lost sales of iron from want of
cars in which to ship. Mr. Drinker of
tho Uloomsburg Iron Co. testified in
his examination before the Committee
on tho Judiciary General of tho Senate
in relation to the Anthraclto Coal diffi
culties, (Report of Commltteo p. 20S)
that "Wo send our pig iron to Rupert
in summer by canal and in winter haul
it in wagons; wo find it cheaper than
sending it over tho Lackawanna and
Uloomsburg railroad company ; tho rail
road company charges 40 cento per ton
from Uloomsburg to Rupert; tho dis
lauco is about two miles" by tho Ca's.
schcduol it is 1.77 miles. Thoro'schenp-
A very good idea of tlio manner In
which tho Co. do business may bo do-
rived from tho testimony of David T.
Round, tho former Supt. of tho road,
boforo this samo Senato Committee. Wo
submit it ; tho point under discussion
was tho switching and changes at Dan
vlllo over a prlvato road.
"By Mr. Hall. Q. Docs your charter
allow you to do that?"

A. "I presume wo havo a right to do
(Report of tho Committco p. 70.)
The Co. being relieved by special law
from tho rates prescribed by tho net of
1810, for distances under fivo miles
presumo that tlioy havo a right" to
chargo anything they pleaso and so ar-
rango thoir rates that tlioy exceed tho
limits of charges and assumo somowhal
tho shapo of potty larceny.
Tho Co. alleged that tho limitation
of four and sixteen. hundredths cents
per ton per mllo Is confined to freight
carried in cars of othors, thus loavlng
thorn at liberty to chnrgo what they
chooso when carrying In their own cars.
Hut your Committee nro of opinion that
this chargo cannot bo justified under
tho terms of the law. (Report of Com
mltteo p. 10.)
Mr. Holmes may bo hone-t in his
convictions that thero is "no road in the
Stato which affords better accommoda
tions for passenger travel or for freight
business" than tho L. A 11. but ho
spoaks from hl3 own experience which
Is obviously very limited. Whcnovor

advico to htm, meant In tho moat kindly
