The peach market in tho large cities is
fairly glutted and prices aro low. The qual

tho variety known as Hale's Early,-ahvajs

this respect may be looked for. Tho crop
throughout Delaware, New Jersey and Ma

aro of good quality. They should bo sold
here at less than usual prices.
Whenever a thunder shower occurs dur

mail fails to reach Illoomsburg by tho proper

The booms at Lock Haven and Williams

Harney M'Cuo was convicted about a year
ago, in Lycoming county, of murder in tho
first degree. His execution was ordered on
tho 17th of March, but that being St. Pat
rick's day it was withdrawn. In tho mean
timo an appeal was taken to the Supreme
court, which directed mm to bo le-senteuccd.
Another day was then fixed for his oxecu
tlon, but that warrant has also been with
drawn upon recommendation of tho State
board of pardons, in order that it may hear
an appeal in favor of commuting tho sen
tenco to Imprisonment for life. Public opin
ion in Lycoming seems to havo settled down
to the conviction that tho oifenco of M'Cuo
was no greater than murder in the second
degrco and that Imprisonment would be tho
just meed ot punishment. Thcro is much
sjmpathy for tho culprit.

Democratic Convention and lis Work.
An abstract of the proceedings of tho
Democratic county convention, by our own
reporter, will bo found In another column.
While some of tho ofllces wcro earnestly
stniirgled for, the proceedings wcro entirely
harmonious. The nominees are all excellent
men and well deserve the stippn't of tho en
tire parly. They arc each and every one
fully competent and of good report before
tho public for honesty, energy and patriotic
purposes. Now that tho nominations are
imulo wo earnestly appeal to tho party for
union and harmony, that its utmost strength
may bo dovotcd to tho polling of every poa
siblo vote for tho Democratic nominees for
Governor and Plato Treasurer. Any acttvo
disaffection or bolting of nominations, and
especially an organized opposition, within
the party to any portion of the local ticket,
will bo nil efi'ectivo means of abstracting
votes from its State candidates, and wo there
fore urge upon the party to ft own down ev
ery endeavor to crento strifo and division
within our own ranks, if such bo attempted,
Though many Democrats had other desires
as regards sumo of tho candidates, tho nom
inations wcro all fairly made, in just obedi
ence to instruction and the doslros of the
voters who elected tho delegates, as inter
preted by the latter themselves, Tho major
ity has announced its judgment, in tho legal
way appointed by party law, and it !. a uni
versally recognized principle of Democracy
to yield a ready nequiesccuco to tho will of
tho majority, when duly expressed. This
Mr. Jell'erson declared to bo tho "vital prin
ciple of Republics." If that principle be
disregarded there never can be unity of ac
tion and tho ni'isses will become the prey tit
tricksters, and their will must be over de
feated when discord prevails.
Hut we aro not apprehensive of discord.
Personally tho ticket is an unexceptionable
one, all tho candidates being men of good
character, unimpeaehed Democracy, well
qualified for the places for which they aro
named, and of substantial personal popular
ity. This preliminary work being now accom
plished, nnd tho Slate nominations soon to
be concluded, let every Democrat now gild
on his armor and prepare for tho important
struggle to redeem tho State from extrava
gance and misrule, and to place tho State
government again upon tho honest founda
tion and freedom from taxation nnd fraud
that characterized the past days of its
prosperity and renown. That battlo will
not bo tho usual ono of mcro political oxcite
ment. The plunderers of tho State who
have been these many years reveling in tho
gains they have stolen from tho people will
only bo defeated after tho most despcrato
struggle. Therefore every Democrat should
prepare to discharge his individual duty with
all the power that may pertain to him. Ev
ery ono has his sphcro of influence. Wheth
er little or much it is Ins duly now to exert
it to the utmost. To this end, union and
harmor.v in our ranks is most important of
all, and whatever the intent or motive, ho
who would destroy or mar it is an impedi
ment to the success of tho principles he pro
fesses. When a great army is on tho'eve of
decisive battle it is no timo to collect beef
bills from its individual members.
Oar Candidates The Senator.
It is quite unnecessary to waste words on
the personality of tho Columbia county
Democratic ticket. The candidates are all
well known as excellent and fit men, worthy
of personal confidence and generous support.
So wero their competitors iu most instances,
and tho support received by tho latter was
an honor to them. Tlicy will now best
prove themselves worthy of it and of tho
confidence of their party by giving an active
support to tho entire ticket.
Of the nominee for Senator it is proper to
speak specially because tho confirmation of
other ceunties, whero lie is not so well known,
is necessary to make him the candidate of
the district. Mr. Charles G. llarkley be
longs to an old family of Columbia county,
some of whoso members have iu the past
given good service to tho public in ollicial
position. He hiniclf is an attorney in good
practice, of unblemished reputation, and
formerly served two or' threo terms, with
ability and satisfaction, in tho office of su
perintendent of common schools, and ashort
time as principal of tho State normal school
at Illoomsburg. He was named for benator
by the Columbia county Democratic con
vention three years ago, iu preference to two
able and popular competitors, by a close,
vote. He was defeated in the district con
ference, but witli tho discreditable proceed
ings on that oeoaifon ho had no connection,
lie is a gentleman of fair talents, undoubted
probity, of supeiior education and schooled
in the line of liusiiics.i that devolves upon n
legislator. Tho local claim of Columbia
county is at least us good as .my other, and
its preponderating Democratic majority
ought to command tho consideration and re
spect of tho other counties of tho district.
Presenting an unexceptionable and lit can
didate, tho fact that Columbia county gives
a larger majority than tho combined majori
ty of all tho other counties in the district,
ought not only bo respected but should havo
great weight. Tho gentlemen selected by
tho Columbia county convention as confer
ees aro men of ability and decided personal
weight of character, and will of course rep
resent her desires and just claims witli earn
estness nnd propriety. It is to bo hoped tho
other counties will recognize tho justice of
tho claims of tho Democracy of this county,
It is said that Lycoming, Sullivan and Mon
tour will each present a candidate of their
own. As tho latter couuty lias the Senator
it (ortaiuly has no churns to press, Sullivan
lsa vcrysnull couiityaud (swell represented by
having ii member. Lycoming will no doubt
bo the principal competitor for tho nomina
lion and will also without doubt present a
meritorious candidate. Its local interests
aro of great importance nnd it will thercforo
in all probability btrugglo earnestly for tho
nomination, lint this nomination is to a
largo extent n question of political proprl
cty, aud us such Columbia may fairly claim
tho precedence ou thia occasion,
Tho result of tho nominations for county
Commissioners suggests sonio explanation.
Uninterrupted by occurrences of nn unusual
nature, tho Democracy would no doubt havo
re-nominated tho Commissioners whose
terms wero cut short by the new Constitu
tion. Hut last year thero was an unusually
closo contest for nomination, Ou tho face
of tho credentials Mr. Quick had a majority
of two, but tho convention decidod iigninst
tho uccuracy of tho Hcrwick return and
required tho two votes of that district to bo
cost for Mr. Kut. This produced a tlo. It
tvui then resolved that recourso should bo
had to tho popular voto cast, tho majority to
dctermiuo tho nominee. This resulted in
Mr. Kill's favor by a few votes. Although
his nomination was submitted to, Mis fair
ness was not so generally concurred iu. Yet
his nomination this year would havo been
a matter of course, as ho Is a worthy man,
hud it not been for n systematic courso of
libel and abuse of prominent Democrats
that was pursued by a dUrcputablo littlo
patent outsldo paper, issued in Uloouuburg,
tho iusldo page of which are printed )n this
town by Mr. lint's son-in-law. Wo havo
never seen a copy, and except In general
terms nnd regarding other persons, do not
permit Its contents to bo repeated to u?, but,
as U liotorioiM, although without material
circulation, thoo of its columns printed
hero teemed eotxtanta luring the past year
with tho grossest, meanest nti'l most ground
less falsehoods against active Demociats and
faithful ollicials, to an extent that required
quiet submission or direct resentment, Vat
all this libel, smut and blackguardism, Mr.
lunt was held responsible and is tho princi
pal sull'ercr, Ho was mmlo to bear tho bat
tle for tho sins of thoso whoso family con
nection brought them in closo proximity,
tho gauntlet thrown down by tho crew of
libellers who cluster orouud the patent con
cern as responsible principal and irresponsi
ble advisers, (the latter In some cases closely
screening themselves) was taken up, nnd
tho result is n complete, perfect and triumph
ant vindication of tho person against whom
tho principal slanders wcro u'nncd,and of all
who were included iu or bespattered by the
patent outaide's libelous ftiluilnalions.' This
whole matter Is only nnolhcr ii'u.tration thai
houest officials will nlways Lo vindicated
by an honest pcoplo when unjustly traduced.
Of courso Messrs. Mclicnry and llcrncr,
the succcs'ful nominee, had nothing to do
with the personal Uue.The decided popular
ity of tho former nominates! him by acclama
tion, nnd tho latter received his nomination
by a vole that any man might be proud of,
lu lew ot tho recognised division of tho
county mado by tiio r'.vcr, Mr.MclIenry nnd
Mr. Knl wcro tho nulm-jl antagonists. Tho
voto cast for Mr. Kut m against Mr. Her-
tier, was In obedience only to indiuclion.s,
slippo.-od lo be applicable in an issuo they
were not intended lor, and were east it no
disposition to deny tho south side of the
river a representation iu tho board of Com
missioners, and as wo judge from no inten
tion even of defe'nting Mr, llcrncr.
Thu Treasury Investigation.
Mr. Treasurer Mackcy having exhibited
names aud places where lie lias Hie large
balances of the sinking fund deposited, it
will now be proper for tho House investiga
ting committee to examine these bankers nnd
nscertaiu what interest they pay for the de
posits they have, to whom, and what securi
ty they give for tho safety and tho eventual
return of the State money they have on
hand. If tho committco can not compel
tho bankers to testify, they can exhibit their
refusal to do so, nnd the negative testimony
thus furnished will bo nearly as valuable ns
though tho affirmative had been obtained.
Lot the public havo all the facts it is a dis
cerning body and will sift out tho truth.
It would scarcely bo accepted as genu! ne
repentance if u robber sinner were to make
confession but refuse to make restitution
though iu tho full possession and enjoyment
of tho ill-gotten gains. Mr, Mackey's con
fession is only a partial one, and now that he
has turned State's evidence he ought to be re
quited to tell all he knows. L"t him appear
before the House committee nnd tell his talc
let him refuse to appear if that suits him bet
ter but let him bo followed up by the com
mittco and driven to tho wall! Ho has re
fused to submit his books as desired by the
committee, but after giving a partial state
ment about the condition of the sinking
fund, which ho desires the public to believe
was voluntary, how can he refuse to tell all
he knows to members of Assembly who have
a light to ask for the information, whether
they are a legal committee or not ?
Thcro can bono manly or just excuse, for
an officer to refu-o to give the public any in
formation regarding his ofiico that may bo
of general interest. It is tho right of the
public to know how their affairs aro being
conducted. It is tho business of their rep
resentatives to find out. As tho House has
appointed a committco to act for it, let it
show that it has made every endeavor to get
the information desired. If any officer re
fuses to answer them, let them givoliis namo
to tho public. Whether means can be
found to punish his wrongaction in refusing
to testify is not of any present importance.
It is tho facts in the case, whatever they lie,
that tho public jtiat now want. As to any
political effect it is of littlo importance
whether Mr. Maekey opens his shell or not,
A refusal lo answer will probably tell more
than all he will say. Hois somewhat ex
pert as ii gabby witness as a dumb ono ho
will bo prolific.
Hartranft Implicated in Treasury liolililnxt
Hy tho State Treasurer's leport for 1S07 it
is shown that Wm. It. Mann received 512,
1 1 1.3 1 "for examining books of foreign in
surance companies,'1 and iu ISO'S? ho received
$17,922.71 for tho same service making in
the two years over $,"0,000 for services of
littlo account and littlo value! It was pri
vately explained, however, that this money
was not given to Mr. Mann for hia personal
uso but to aid in carrying tho elections for
tho Republicans. This is only ono of tho
many ways by which tho pcoplo wcro plun
dered to cnablo the Republicans to carry tho
elections ono way that was combined witli
many but is nn item to show how merciless-';
ly tho pcoplo ;havo been plundered and de
frauded in order to keep power in the hands
of tho Republican party.
When theso accounts wero settled Gov.
Hartranft was Auditor General, Ho certi
fied to the correctness of both items. Ho
is thercforo responsible for theso amongst
numerous other frauds perpetrated upon tho

place where ho can contlnuesuch action? It

It should bo specially noted that this ex
hibit is mado at a time when tlio deposits
are the lowest of any timo in tho year, a
considerable amount of the principal and
all the interest upon the State debt having
just been paid. Here is nearly n, million,
and in a month's time thcro would be a mit
lion nnd n half, of the people's money in tlio
Hanks, Sec, to tho credit of tlio Stato Treas
ury, upon which tho people receive no intcr-c-t.
Hut no doubt somebody elocs. Of course
that somebody can only bo tlio Stato Treas
urer, or the bankers pay the sum directly to
other Radical leaders for election purposes
for their personal use. This busbies is often
transacted thus : Mr. Radical goes to a bank
and says (alter an understanding with the
State Treasurer) to the officers: I will get
you a deposit of ft"iU,000 of Stato funds pro
vided you pay nio live per cent interest on it
while you havo it. Of course tlio bank ac
cepts, as it can loan tho money out again at
ten per cent at lcat. Thus an average sum
of two millions of dollars of tho people's
money luu been used for tho last twelve
years, aud it is with this that tho Radicals
carry elections. It is ii-ed all over the State,
has been used in Columbia county, to buy
up corrupt politicians and voters and to com
mit frauds upon tho ballot box and in the
If the resolution forced by General Tem
pi o is honestly carried out, this electioneer
ing fund will be destroyed. All tho money
iu the Sinking Fund will be promptly used
in payment of Slate debt, nnd the people bo
thus saved from the payment of a large
sum of interest upon it.
What business has Mr. Jacob K. Ridgc
way, of Philadelphia, with t?!iO,000 of tho
people's money ? Ho pays tho Stato no in
terest. What business has the "People's"
bank of Philadelphia with three hundail
thousand dollars t It pays the Slato no in
terest. And the same question may bo asked
of each of the others. Not one of them ev
er pays the Stato a dollar of interest, yet
they use an average of two millions of tlio
people's money and rcceivo a largo interest
upon it! This is the way tho Republican
leaders cheat the people in order to obtain
tlio means to corrupt and control them, nnd
Ihus retain the power to cltc.it them.
The Radical papers givo Mackcy great
praise for making this exhibit. Hut why did
lie do it? llo never did it before no other
Republican Treasurer over did it why is it
made now? Jleeausc tho Auditor Gencntl
mmptllcd him lo do it. General Tcmplo is
not a closed mouthed mousing owl, but is an
honest, frank man who has no hesitancy in
declaring that he will dischaige his duly and
how lie can reach the purposes the interests
of tho peoplo demand. Ho said ho would
offer his resolution and ho did. Ho ex
pressed his determination at tlio same tiino
and iu tho same way to compel :i full expo
sition of tlio Sinking Fund, and where de
posited. Tho Republican ollicials knew tho
thunder was coming and they sought shelter
under a confession when they saw they
could no longer escape expo-ure. That is
why they opened their mouths. So much
for an honest and determined Democratic
Thin tho-public havo the facts and now Is
thu time to apply tho corrective. To com
plete tho protection of their interests tlio
peoplo muit elect a Democratic Governor
nnd State Treasurer. Then thcro will bo a
full opportunity to cxposo frauds, to compel
restitution, and to carry out reform to its
Iiailh'iil Stupidity in Sihcr Coiuai.

On motion of D. Lowcnborg, it was or
dered that future conventions assemble, for
organization only, ut It o'clock, a. in. Ad
After tho adjournment of tho convention
thu committco met : but us there wero but
few in attendance, it was determined not to
ell'ect n permanent organization nt this time.
Warren J. lliieknlew was chenon chairnf.iu
pro tern, and E, E. Orvis, clerk, nro ttm.
The t'ommiUrp then adjourned lo inert at
the ofllco of C. R. Iluckalow & Son, on
Thursday, Aug 111, 1875, to organize, and
attend lo such other matters ns may require
attention nt that time.
How tin' l'ciili Pay fur It.nlical Mectlnss.
Our opponents for weeks gavo nolico that
a grand opening of tho campaign would
como oil' at Erio durliti; tho session of the
U. H. court there. Tho Chairman (Col.
lloyt) of tho Radical State Committee, had
invited all his parly friends in tho Stale to
be present and assist him ou ids grand open
ing occasion. More, south-western New
York nnd north -eastern Ohio, and friendsby
rail stid the Lakes wero invited. Well, tho
period nriivrd, but the thousands, nnd even
thu hundreds who wero invited did not come,
A few scores wcro present to assist iu the
grand oponing ceremonies; chief among
them weio Chaiiman Hoyt, ox-United Slates
Senator John Scott and about fifty other
grand and petit States jnroiv, who had found
their way lo Erie at three dollars per dag and
ticcntg evil's per mile, which amount was
drawn out of the United States Treasury.

Senator Scott's mileage was much less as
ho resides In Pittsburgh, while tho Chair
man lives away up tho North llranch iu Lu
zerne cotrgty. Tho bills for tho other open
ing delegates averaged about i?f.". The sur
face cost of this opening process, as near as
wo can conjecture, were about as follows :

This sum was paid out of the United
States Treasury. What amount was drawn
out of the Statu Treasury for incidentals, wo
havo no means of ascertaining, as State
Treasurer Mackcy will not allow any body
to take a look at his two million unexpended
balance. Rut wo have no doubt that tho
Stato Treasurer and tho nominee Rawlo
who was right at his home would raic a
good opening campaign fund from some
source, if not out of tho State Treasury, they
would of course, take it out of their pock
ets iu order to ofl'-ct the bill paid by Undo
Sam. Tlioso fellows aro all great Union
Let it be remembered that crerg tpeakcr at
thii lladival eaiiip'tign opening at Eric drew
out of the United Stales Treasury nt least $Co.
This for meanness aud superlative impu

small rogues when compared to Scolt and
Hoyt. The former robbed the people when
money was plenty everybody h ail it, such
ns it was but theso campaign openers conic
down on us nnd tako their swis; when wo
have not money enough to pay our taxes,
after having added 2." per cent, to our to
bacco and -10 per cent, to jur whisky bills.
It ically looks as though George O. Evans'
butties were determined to clean out the Uni
ted States and the Slate Treasuries before
they ship for Europe, where many of their
dear friends havo gono already to escape
Lastly, we learn that thisopcniiigoec.ision
was oneof tlio tamest allairs tli.it ever c.tme
oil' at Erie Ordinary county meetings are
often as largely attended. Jiur the ojfitvrs
a)id speakers were never before jmid out of the
Unitut Stales Treasury. The next Radical
meeting at Erio will no doubt bo a lingo one
in view of this fact. Clearjield Republican.
