Doei the editor of thu Columbia Herald

Mr. ISratton would make a most acceptable

If tho legislature undertakes to protect reck'

Kx-Senator llaytiril, of Delaware.
Ex-Senator James A. Rayard, of Delaware,

In a conversation with n Tribuno reporter,

wero dead, and ago prevented him from mix.

with fear and anxiety tho spread of corrup

revereuco for tho old constitutional princl
pies which prescribed limitation of powers
and forbade tho interference of the federal
government in internal improvements. Tho
abandonment of these principles breeds cor
ruption, and government interference with
railroads or other matters which should bo
left to individual enterprUo will ultimately
lead to its destruction. Ho believed it was
n great mistake to give the right of euffrngo
to tho negro race. They aro untutored, lull
of passions, without deliberation or argu

political demagogues. J hey did not expect.

We have so far discussed tho prominent
names suggested for nomination for Govern--r
by the Democracy, without expressing a
preference for either, and wo havo largely
given tho opinions of soino of tho alilest
Democratic newspapers as to tlio character
that should bo pnssscd by tho prospective
nominee So far tlicro will bo 110 disagree
ment nmong men of patriotic and useful

take will havo been passed. Settled nltor
nios of railroad companies and other hugo
corporations, men whoso records nro not
clear of tho stain of know nothingism, sal
ary grabbing, or other damaging blotches,
should not bo delegates and would be fatal ns
candidates. To rally tho full strength that
may be massed wo must have a candidate of
marked ability and stainless record, who is
well known to be independent of corpora
tion inlluences, nud favornblo to tho most
economical plans of government. Thus, a
recognised disciple of tho old Shunk school
would bo tbo strongest candidate that could
bo put forward, and such would carry the
State overwhelmingly. Had he not been mi
recently elected to tho Supremo bench a
position in which he will be most useful to
tho people wo would namu Warren J.

A Prosecution Dismissed.
In the United States District Court at
Williamsport, last week, tbo prosecution
commeuced some timo since against Captain
Rroekway for an allcdged offense under tlio
Pension laws of tho United States, was fi
nally disposed of by tho grand jury, tlio bill
of indictment against him being ignored.
Wo aro informed that tho facts- of tlio caso
were as follows: Catharine Rcinaly, a sol
dier's widow, resident in Salem township,
Luzerne county, employed tho Captain to
obtain certain back-pay and bounty monoy
due her on account of her husband from tho
U. S. Government and gave him a letter of
Attorney for the purpose. The demand was
prosecuted through a firm of claim agents nt
Washington, and was recovered. A Treasu
ry certificate for tho amount was forwarded
to tho Captain on tho 7th of February, 18GG,
and after deducting charges and expenses
there was due to Mrs. Remaly tbo sum of
52S3.74. For this sum, on the 22d of the
samo month, the Captain drew a check on
the First National Rank of Rloomsburjr, in
favor of Mrs. Remaly, and had it marked
"good" by Mr. Tustin, the Cashier. Tho
check was then forwarded to Mrs. Polly An
derson, at Reach Haven, for delivery to tho
claiuiaut, Mrs. Anderson then keeping n
small store at that placo and acting for Mrs.
Remaly in the business. On the 27th of tho
same month Mrs. Anderson wrote to tho Cap
tain, by mail, and enclosed a regular receipt
for tho check, signed by Mrs. Remaly. The
check itself was endorsed by Mrs. Remaly,
n her ewu proper handwriting, was present
ed at tho First National Rank of Rerwick,
was jiaid there, and by that bank charged to
and forwarded to thu Rloomsburg bank, and
by tho latter entered to the C.iptain'saccourit
and paid by him, About all theso facts
thcro is no dispute.
Rut within the past year.'uud moro than
eight years after tlio transaction, Mrs. Rem
aly made complaint before United States
Commissioner Halm, at Wilkes-Rarrc, al
lcdging that she had not received, more than
117 of her claim, which was paid to her
at Rloomsburg and not at Reach Haven.
Upon tho production of tho check for 283.-7-1,
sho admitted that tho endorsement of
her name on tho back was in her handwri
ting, but pretended to bo ignorant of tho
contents of tho paper. Tlio testimony of
Mr. Davis, tho Cashier of tho Rerwick bank,
wastotliecll'ectjthai itwas tho ruloand pinc
ticuof the bank, upon paying a cheek, to re
quire tho person presenting it to place their
nameupom it (if not already therej,and that
ho knew of no caso where this was dispensed
with. So, not only did tlio claimant at tlio
timo of tho transaction give a receipt for tho
check, and endorse tho cheek itself, but in
all probability alio drew tho money upon it
personally from tho bank.
Tills caso illustrates the harrassmcnt to
which citizens mav bo subjected by petty or
groundless prosecutions in tho United States
Courts, tlio jurisdiction of which courts is
being constantly and unreasonably increas
ed. Ercn an acquittal in 0110 of these
courts will cost mi innocent defendant hun
dred! of dollars, and wo bolievo ho cannot
recover costs. However innocent ho may bo

Those courts arc farther removed from the

that many prosccutlonsnro begun in them in

faith for public purposes. Somo of theso

to clip tho wings of Federal jurisdiction und

THE COLUMBIAN AND
Tlio Federal Treasury.
It Is now sonio time since a new United
scutes Treasurer lias been nppointcd, yet It
is not altogether certain to this day that the
new appointee will accept. Ornvo hints nro
from time to time thrown out that tlicro Is
dltllculty because tho new ollicer demands
that all tho money In tlio Treasury shall bo
counted boforo ho receipts for it. Tlio fear
is that n very largo deficiency will appear
and that oxposuro of this fact will work ma
terial Injury to tho Republican party. In
discussing this subject thu Philadelphia
Chronicle says :
"Mr. New, tho gentleman appointed to
succeed Treasurer Spinner, lias taken alarm
at tho recent thefts and other unpleasant de
velopments In tho department, ol which ho
has been invited to become tho head nud
front. Those irregularities are not in ac
cordance with his ideas of propriety. Mr.
Ncw's head is evidently quito level. Ho is
one of the kind who would llko to lake the
honors of the position, if, in so doing, lie
could bo relieved of tlio immense responsi
bilities. Ho is reported to havo requested
Secretary. Hristow to releaso him from tlio
asjuranco of acceptance given, and tho Sec
retary is reported as expressing a decided un
willingness to let him olf.
Just hero there comes in another littlo ru
mor which may or may not mean something.
When General Spinner leaves tho oflico of
ireaslirer, a count of all tho money on hand
will have to bo made, in order that his suc
cessor may know precisely where ho stands.
That affairs in Mr. Spinner's department
aro said to bo in any other than a satisfacto
ry condition is well understood; there aro
broad intimations that an honest count of
the money will reveal discrepancies so great
that tho Republican party will bo crushed
beneath them. If revealed, they would give
tho Democrats a clear "walk over" in 187(1,
it something not nt nil in ascordaneo with
their wishes or intentions, if it is possible to
avoid it. To obviate this difficulty there are
two alternatives. Tho first is to keep on
counting without making a report until tho
election is over. This might bo done if Mr.
New would consent to it. Mr New will not
consent. The other is to havo Mr. New de
cline, and prevail upon Mr. Spinner to re
consider his resignation, and despito his
waning health, to hold on, and thus possi
bly help to tido the party over tho flood that
threatens to sweep them awav. Hence these
hints about Mr. Ncw'a sklttishncsi."

It is considered rather singular that whilo

every imaginable purpose, tlio agriculturists

our scientists should surely bo equal to the
task of inventing somo way of destroying po
tato hugs and grasshoppers without danger
to human beings, as is alleged to be tho caso
when Paris green, apparently the only ellica'
clous remedy, is used. Persons who argued
that tho grasshoppers could not cross tho
Mississippi are silenced by tho fact that they
have done bo. The samo class of persons
once ridiculed tho idea that tho Colarado

cannot be stopped by sucii obstacles as rivers

They must bo such as Gov. Allen, of Ohio,

The tendency of extravagant salaries and

devolves upon thu Democracy of tliuStato at

When tho peoplo of tho Stato of Ohio in
1S73, and New York iu 1874, felt that a
change of rulers was necessary iu their re
spective Slates, they sought for them, not
among those holding olhcial positions, but

outspoken Democrats, neither office-holders
nor ofiice-seekcis, always ready and free to

and political integrity wero unquestioned,
and whoso lives allbrdcd a reliablu guarantee

If tho Democratsof Pennsylvania aro wise
they will profit by these examples, and nom

At the lato term of tho U.S. Court nt Wil
liamspoit, Amos Applcnian, of Columbia
county, was found guilty on four indictments,
containing two counts each, for "attempting
to defraud tho United Statesof tax on spin
its and failing to give bonds." Tho report
of tho trial adds: "Sentenco was suspend
ed until tlio Commissioner oan bo heard
fiom." This means simply until tho petty
officials find out how much juico can be
squeezed from that lemon. It was proved
that Mr. Applemau had a small still and
some spirits iu his cellar, ho alledging that
tho still was used only in preparing food for
stock. If tlio Radicals keep in power much
longer peoplo will havo to tako out govern
incut licenses for making root beer and gin
ger pip, and if they do not cover tho bottles
with government stamps they will bo
"squeezed" sufficiently by arrests to support
wbolo hordes of pimp iu government petty
employ. Tlio land is now full of spies to
find out whero chances to punish men for
slight errors may exist and to"qucezo"
them out of every cent they aro able to pay,
if technically guilty of the slightest offence.
That is the way a largo proportion of tlio
Radical petty officials live.
Tho Reading Jiigle, advocates settling tho
