vote of her Legislature. Ho U one of the

nation is better fitted for the Prejidaucy
than he.
Upon examination the Wayne county
Herald will find that the Columbian was
accurate in its statemiut about the proposed
increase f salaries of county officers, if the
Philadelphia papers gave a correct . state
ment of tho bill. It is not the practice of
Legislatures in time days to re luce nalaries is the order of the day.
The PottsTillo Standard urge the nomi
nation of Hon, James Ellis, of Schuylkill
county, as the next Democratic candidate
for Governor. Mr. Kllis served several
years in the State Legislature with ability
and distinction, and in all respects acquitted
himself most honorably. He would 110
doubt nuke a good Governor.
Hon. George Soott, of Columbia county,
has been elected President of the State Ag
ricultural Society. We need not tell the
people of this county who ho is or what are
his meriU, but will say that the choice is one
eminently fit to be made. Notwithstanding
tho fact that i day's service between two
plow handles would senrely be agreeable to
him, he will no doubt make an efficient
President. Tho timeand place forthenextStato

A Republican Congressman who ventured'
to remonstrate with Gen. Grant about tho
danger to the party resulting from his Lou

declaration "I could be re-elected to-mor-row."

In Massachusetts, Henry L. Dawes, Re
publican, was last week elected U.S. Senator,
which is an immense iinproveinentupou any
thing that the blue-bellied State has had in
that body within the last twenty years. Al
though 1111 able Republican, Dawes Is a gun-
ttcmau and lias disposition and cnurago to
fight many forms of corruption, and withal
lias ruucli candor.
His election is a surprise. List winter he
and Hoar divided the party so equally that
the Democrats held tho balance of power
and prevented tho election of cltker. This
year it was supposed tho same result would
follow, but a majority of Hoar's friends for
(some unexplained reaon caved and Dawes
was elected, liutler ami Dawes now laad

Tlio Political Power of Corporations.
One of tho cvlN, In which is embraced a
vast nmtunt of public Injury, attending the
(xlstcnen of powerful corporations, Is the
tact that they always aim to control gorrru
nent nod to filch largo nuns of money frors
,mblip treasuries. A bad i-hariftcrUlic "I
this fact is also that they aim to contr il olli
lals and official kodle by the corrupt "rr
ir of money. Having ones corrupted public
llliecr.s to nrrve their own enl.s, the officers of
ourso remain corrupt ns to all things, and
ciintiuuo to swindle the people In every pos
sible form. An example in point is the
Pacific Mail Steamship company. It paid
seven hundred and fifty thousand do1 1 aw, as
its own books show, to eficettue page of a
llll through Congress giving to it ten mill
ions of dollars from the United Stales Treas
ury. And to this same system of systcmatit
corruption may bo traced the bad action of
our State Legislatures for years past. First
they wero corrupted tt servo Railroad pur
poses, chief amongst which weru the sale of
the public works, which In itself was perhaps
.1 proper measure, but the passage of the bill
in tho csso was effected by corruption of the
most glaring and ramified character. This
iras followed by the repeal of thotouagotax,
oy means of the boldest and most direct bn
bory. Tills was naturally succeeded by the
corruptions and recklessness incident to war
times, ami tho advent uud stoutly lease of
power of tho Republican party, built on that
foundation anl maintained by the profligate
and illegittaiato use of public and corpora
tiou money. A huge Railroad corporation
speedily came to own the Legislature and
nearly all branches of (ho State government
It controled at will, not only Legislatures,
but nominating conventions, ftcn of both
patties; it appointed fcitatoTrcasurers and used
the miney of tlio people in the Treasury to
the person il profit of its officers, to carry elec
tions by tho introduction of au immense sys-
tjm of fraud at tho ballot box; it appointed
U. b. b-inator.s, who became its rcnre-seiita
lives instead of representatives of the State,
it made the ajcountius officers for tho State
to screen its Treasury oflisiaU, and it bought
to crush, still seeks to crush, and to a great
extent succeeds, every public man and every
newspaper that attempts exposure or resis
tance. It aims at exclusive and (practically)
Imperial power, by stilling all honest action
by public men, giving bold notice to the
justly ambitious tint they can not succeed
except by yielding to its desires and aband
oning all idea of economical government. In
fact it looks upon the tax payers as tho legit
imato and most promising obiects of nluii
der, and it will try to crush every public man
who does not cive assent to the sentiment
fliis powerful corporation largely makes our
Judges, our benators, our Ojiigrcssmen, our
Legislators, Governors, State officers, and nil
officials who have control of important pub
lic ffices and corrupts them nil.
Not only all that, but it and liko corpora
tions seek to control tho business, the finances
and the general interests of the land, as well
as its politics and its government. They are
a powerful at Washington asnt Harrisburg,
md several are thera n.jw, headsd by the
President of tho Pennsylvania railroad com
pany, impudently asking millions upon mil
lions from tho Federal Trsasury while tho
President of tho United States is demanding
the addition of millions to tho taxes of the
people to save that same Treasury from bank
ruptcy 1
How long, oh, now lonq, will tho people
bear this corruption, robbery, dictation and
tyranny? They crushed tho Republican
party for yielding to it. Aro the Dsmocracy
to bo captured in tho same way and the
hopes of tho pcoplo again to be dashed to
tho grouud? We confess wo soo terrible
symptoms and fear tho result, especially in
our State. .
Even our friends, the Grangcra, tho honest
farmers who control and compose that body,
when they nssemblo in Convention, in they
did recently at Williamspnrt with a repre
sentation said to number 1500, whoso whole
interests nro against monopoly control, were
kind as doves as to any thing that might ef
fect the great corporation. Tho fact is every
public body of influence is reached for and
controlled if possible, as is every single in-
lividual having material influence, by these
corporations, lhey seek to control every
thing for their own benefit, and unless they
aro noon powerfully and successfully resist
ed, tho whole country, with all its business
and interests, will soon .bo in their hands
and under their control.
It is high timo to go hack to tho patriotic
doctrines of Gov. Shunk erect corporations
only for such necessary purposes as can not
bs reached by iudividuil enterprise, and
allow them only enough and land
enough to conduct that .special business.
Whenever they undertake to muddle injio-
litical affairs lot them bo crushed.
As illustrative of the power of tho Pen n-
sylvania railroad company, wo ask, what
chance have tho people to resist any thing
it a-sks at Washington or Harrisburg? The
people havo their voice, ami it is powerful ;
they may protoitand nuko a representative
tremble in his boots. IJut the corporation
cau take from its ooa'urs and charge to "re -pair
fund," a hundred thousand dollars, or
two, throe, four or fivo hundred thousand
and with this fund uivo to this Legislator
one thousand, to that fivo thou rand, to anoth
er ten thousand, &., according to his im
portance or influence, and promise him all
the funds ho needs to secure his ro-election.
Tho sum is a small one to tho corporation
as a six penco to a larnur. What cares he
then lor protest or voice of pooplo? llo has
plenty of money and tho promise of enough
more to re-elect himself. He can go to every
election district in his county and by leaving
small sums with men who will bo active in
Ins behalf easily rally supporters enough to
a delegate election to Bocuro his re-nomina
tion, and by a similar distribution before
election among all parties, get such 11 vote
a to make himself appear tlio most popular
of candidates. Tho result to the people is
that their interests are lost while corruption
triumphs, llaware of the "clever fellows"
who spend large sunn to bj electod to office,
as well as 01 corparatlous!

The election for Governor next fall In
Pennsylvania will no doubt bo one of the
most exciting political contests tint ever
took place on this continent. Upon Its re
sult will probably depend tho Presidential
election of the next year, and tlio future ex

politically a deatn sniggle. The deleat of
tho Republican p irly then will bo its utter

The Radical leaders are having 11 grand
time of it at Washington. Tho carpet
baggers demand the passage of the civil
rights bill and authority to Grant to suspend
the writ of Imbcus corpui. which would end
in remanding several of the southern States
back to a territorial condition. As there was
opposition to this in tho Republic m ranks a
caucus was called, and under tho leadership
of Ren liutler it was agreed to repeal the rule
which requires a voto of two-thirds to take
bill from tho Speaker's table. Strength to
adopt this 111 mucus was acquired by prjinis
ing to pass a number of plundering bills un
der the same programme, as a majority voto
could then take up anv tiling. Hut to the
dismay of liutler and his carpet-bag friend

reached in tho House, some Radicals voted
against it, others dodged and many ran aw.iv!

present State government cannot main
tain itself in power a singlo hour without
the protection of Federal troops, and oven
with this protection they will not be able to
collect taxes and perforin tho functions of
government. The Statu government has not
tho confidence or respect of any portion of
the community." Further on he savs : "If
the expressions of tlio pcoplo are to bo be
litivcd, and I do believe them, there is a verv
sincero desire to livo quietly under tho lira
tection ot tho Constitution of the United
States and enjoy tho blessings of tho Nation

The Jstgulative Record is a publication
that would be useful (particularly to editors)
if properly mailed at Harrisburg. It should

often four or five rolls together. These of

the value of wasto paper. We aro informed
by an cx-mtniber tint tho reason of this is
that theStutc pays postagcon each single num

in which lie took strong around against
tho extension of patents, by which pa.ipb
using patented articles have to pay about
three times their value. This is one of the
most outrageous abuses that is niw imposed
upon tho public, audit is gratifying that
ono able man has at length Iujii elected to
Congress who is strong in the determination
to attack and if possible destroy it. As farm
ers are most seriously oppressed and taxed
by tho patent abuse it is strange that the
Grangers do net speak out on the sub
ject nnd demand of their Congressmen to
give the required relief. U is true that

Grangers with special reduction to them.
but is this only to a class, even to them
the reduction that would follow a repeal of
tho patent laws, their modification as to
timo and sons to prevent renewals or tho

three times as much asany patentee, will make

The election of Mr. Wallace to the Senate
of tho United States rcquirqs t'aa resignation

it is held that he need not resign until the

Iaptrtant Ultctiju litcislm.
In a contested election cas- In Venango
futility, Judge Trunkcy, one of the clearest
and ablest Judges In tho State, decided sev
eral points of much public interest.
1M. In one case the law fixed the place for
holding tho election at an old school house.
A new one had been built nt about 80 rods
distance, te take Its ptacr, and the officers
held at election of the latter. The Judge
rejected the return deciding that "If nn elec
tion be held without necessity, at a ditl'orent
place I'rem thootio drslguatcd by law, the en
tire poll must bo rejected."
2d. Tho law disqualifies persons in .the
service of thn United States from acting as
election officers. In imo case a postmaster
had served as Mich and on this ground it was
Hought to throw out the return.
Wliile the Court condemned in plain
terms the gross violation of the constitution
and the 1 aws of the State on the part of in
dividuals who assume and perform the du
ties of nn office for which they are disquali
fied, and said such men should not be allow
ed to escape a penalty, if one can bs found
for the oll'enee, it hold that the action of
theo officers was valid, and the election
held by them legal.
Tlio remaining question at isue related to
the legality of tlio votes of unregistered per
suns who were not required to produce proof
if their qualifications at the time of voting.
On this point Judgo Trunkcy's review of au
thorities was full and elaborate. The gist of
tho decision is that, "under the act of 1871,
the voto of a person, name is not on
the registry list, without the proofs of quali
fication, is illegal when received, and cannot
be made legal by evidence of qualification on
the trial."
Therefore it is plainly tho duty of elec
tion officers to require proof in all cases from
pcrsot.s offering to vote, whose names aie not
on tho registry list, aud that f.ict should be
kept in mind lor future occasions.
