Hon. Horaco liinney died in Philadelphia
on the 12th inst. He was born in that city
January 4, 1780, and was therefore in tho
96th year of his ago at death. Ho was ad.
initted to tho bar in March, 1800, and was a
member of tho Legislature in 180G-7. Ho'
was also a leading member of Congress from
1833 to 183.r). Ho was a gentleman of high
character and much Philadelphia distinc
tion. Ho filled many positions of important
public trust, and was always held in tho
highest esteem in his native city.
Tlio Stato board of pardons is growing
rapidly into a sort of Imrlcsquo court, whero
sympathy instead of proof of Innocence
voids punishment. Tho lawyer witli a peek
of tears stands no chance with his adversary

of her attributes. It gives lawyers an addi
tional field for splendid fees, forms a sort of
rogue's harbor, and relieves tho Governor of
just responsibility and somo unpleasant labor,
and thero tho functions of tills board of

'o Coroner to Meet.
Tho nomination of Mr. Isaiah Yeagcr for
Coroner, by tlio Democratic county conven
tlou lost week, was a mistake. Thoroisnu
Coroner to elect at this time, 0. G Murphy,
Esq., of Cenlralia, (whero, by-the-way, they
need Coroners) having been elected last
November and commissioned for three years.
Thero was no disposition to take oil' tho
gallant Squire olhcial head, but tho im
pression erroneously prevailed that ho had
not lifted his cominIsiion,aud hence tho new
nomination. Under tho circumstances wo of
courso tako Mr. Yeagcr'a namo from tho
Mortliern Pacific I tall road.
This road, with all its privileges, franchis
es and property, was hold hist week, in New
York, to a "committco of bondholders," for
1190,000. As tho sale was on mortgage,
all its debts, bonds nnd stock aro now wiped
out, and the small tiumbcr of stock and bond
holders represented in tho purchasing com
inlttco aro the only ttpes who will reap any
benefit from tho sale. Thero are, also, largo
bodies of western lands, appropriated by thq
government to tho company, to bo Hold In
September, but those will bo gobbled up by
tho committee mentioned at a nominal price,
Tho proccfdings upon tlio wholo will wipo
out all claims against tho company and pans
tho road with all its property into tlio linnih
of tho few men who compose tho firm of Jay
Cooke A Co., and their friends and partners,

volve a few rents upon them, but that is the
but they can hope for
iSfnto Treasurer.
1'ioni oxohaiij.-.' wo learn that In caso of
tho itomliiation of a western man for Gov

for lntegrlly, or mnie deserving of such n
Jmark of Dcmociallo favor. Always a most
rellahlo Democrat and ever literally nwbcol
linrso for his party, and proverbially modest,
ho nuvcr pushed himself forward for posi
tion, and Is now well stricken in years with
little of this woil Vt poll' to sootlio his declin
ing days or ensure him against tho common
needs of life. One of thoso faithful Demo
crats who sacrificed themselves to promote
Mr. Iltielinnnn to tho VresUlency, ho was left
with nearly all otlicrlinm-working, unselfish
friends ol that utisympathblng statesman,
who worked for him in season and out of
season, to make their way as best they could
against tho open and secret enemies they
mado by tho ardor and warmth with which
they pressed his cause. While such as l"oru
ey and hundreds of others fell from this
cause, Sanderson remained firm as adamant
in tho support of Democratic principles
Cold neglect by tho successful chieftain nei
ther soured him, nor (.cut him to tho ranks of
tho enemy, nor, iiouting, to nu attitudo of
iiidillerenco to cither personal friendship or
Democratic success. On tho other hand, ho
remained as firm a Democrat as ever and as
faithful a personal friend to Mr. I'.iichnnau
as that distinguished (statesman possessed. If
tho taller has fricniN now who hold him in
grateful remembrance or patriotic rcgaid
they cannot better show it than by assisting
to confer tho high honor suggested upon his
over faithful and vigorous friend, Geo. San
derson. Republics should not bo ungrateful,
nor should tho friends of distinguished Re
publican statesmen.
Wo bclievo Mr. Sanderson never held any
olliri.ll position except that of Mayor of
Lancaster. In that ho discharged his duties
most creditably nnd honorably, as ho would
in tho position of SUto Treasurer. If an
eastern candidate bo nominated for Govern
or, of eourso Mr, Sanderson will bo with
drawn as a candidate for Treasurer, Were
the convention to nominate him for Govern
or there would bo no occasion to growl
about it.
Tho Rapacious Maw of Corporate Monopoly

"The Heading railroad company has mado
a proposition "to furnish tlio forty or moro

mrnaces now out oi mast aiong me jicuuing
railroad and branches, with all tho iron ore,
liinestono and coal, and to take tho product
off their hands, paying for tho iron a reason
able profit on tho cost of manufacture. Tho
proposition, it is said, is boing responded to
favorably by tho iron establishments, and
there is a fair probability of all tho furnaces
being again in blast within a reasonable
time." The Reading railroad company has
already obtained a complete control and
monopoly of tho vast coal business of tho
Schuylkill region, and now cssayH to obtain
similar power over tho production of iron in
that quarter. Of the success of its entcr-
prizo wo suppose there is no question. Of
tlio propriety of converting tins grand onco
perfectly freo country into a land of monop
oly wo aro glad thero is yet much diifcrenco
of opinion. When it is probably too late
tho people will possibly wako up to tho im
portance of the Jacksonian Democratic doc
trine on tho subject, and they will then, too,
if not sooner, wako up to tho fact that all
tho legislation of tlio Itcpnblican party that
could infiuenco the subject has been directed
to tho creation of monopolies, in a manner
to abstract all power possiblo from tho peo
ple, whom it has taxed and robbed, and
robbed nnd taxed, witli a promiscuous pro
fusion that has rendered tlio terms insepara
ble if not symonjiuons in meaning. Tho
mighty giant, tho freeman's morally unre
strained Kilt, ono of thesa days will wako up
to find himself bound hand and foot, nnd by
every hair of his head, through tho multi
farious machinations of tho Republican
party and its iutcrminablo chain of rings.
Tho starting of the furnaces is a good thing,
but they will never rid themselves from the
grasp of tlio monster that embraces them
until that day of doom, suroto come, when
tho overloaded corporations must bo crushed
to earth by thoir own weight.
As illustrative of Reading railroad
designs, hero is an nnccdoto related to us :
An intellectual looking gentleman in a
passenger car of tho company observed a boy
Felling matches. Calling tho lad to him ho
inquired, kindly:
"How much do you mako in nday Belling
"Sometimes ten cents, sonio twenty, and
sometimes oven thirty cents, when I have
good luck."
"Well, my lad," benevolently replied tho
gentleman, "mako all you can this month;

to inform you, wo will assume this business
Moral the Reading railroad company is

Wo did not know that political lightning
had struck anywhere outside of Iiloomsburg,
until wo saw tho announcement in the last
Berwick Independent that Capt. John It.4
Yohc, of Mitllin, was a volunteer candidate
for Associate Judge. Tho valorous Captain
was the regular Democratic nominco for tho
position five years ago, but between a dislike
of tho practices by which ho obtained a nom
ination and a falluro to dlscorn his merits
and qualifications, the Democracy could not
bo very unanimously rallied to his support,
and therefrom a dwiblo oonscnicnco liaa re

time treat all his Democratic supporters to a

publicans, and if they chooso to adopt him
as a candidate we will charitably wish them
joy of their morsel. Had tleir leaders been
in smart as they think themselves they
would Imve seen to his election five years
ago, but that is beyond their power now and
would result only to their own discredit if
they conld succeed.
Hut, gentlemen of tho Republican per

When John 1'. llartraull was a candidate
for Governor In 1S7'2, tho "liquor league" of
this State suddenly turned Into his support,
and In a brief tlmo It was ascertained that
the leaders of the Republican party had
mado n solemn engagement not only to pre
vent future legislation in hostility to tho sale
and use of liquor as a beverage, 4)iit also
agreed that they as n party would throw nolni
pediment In tho way of the repeal of tho lo
cal option law. They In fact promised to
repeal that law, If they should possess the
power, Tho leaders thus pledged themselves
personally, but of courso could not pledgo
their party followers. To this arrangement
Mr. Hartranft gave Ids consent, tho consid
eration fur nil which being that tho liquor
league was to support Hartranft for Gover
nor. After ho became Governor, not n word
did ho or his personal counsellors, including
all the leading Republican politicians, utter
against tho repeal of tho local option law.
When tho repeal bill passed tho Legislature
tho Tcmperiinco men unanimously protested
against tho Governor signing it. Thoy were
joined in this by tho clergy men of the Meth
odist church then assembled in coiifcrcuco
at Huntingdon. Their resolution of pro
test passed, wo believe, unanimously. Most
of tho clergy of tho State joined in tho pro
test, or were known to bo opposed to repeal
All this formidable array of protest hail no
More weight and received no more consideration
than thouijh it had come from so many prat
tling boys who had not yet trusted themsilecs
beyond the mother's apron string. The reason
was obvious Gov. llartranlVs hands wero
lied tlio pledge to tho "liquor league" duro
not bo broken. Ho signed tho repealing lull
and local option became a thing of tlio past,
without giving it tho decent respect of a sec
ond judgment of tho people at the ballot
We make no prctenco that the Democracy
aro a tempcranco party. That party believes
in leaving all moral questions to lie deter
mined by moral means. It is ngainst nil leg
islation that interferes with personal desires,
except so far as is necessary to restrain men
from doing bodily injury to each other or
wrong to each other's properly or rights.
It passes nnd sustains no sumptuary laws nnd
in no wiso invades tho domestic circle. It
leaves moral means to accomplish moral
ends. It believes in God's power to control
His people. As to moro earthly (political)
affairs it assumes to control only so far as is
absolutely necessary. It believes that tho
less the pcoplo aro governed (politically)
the better. It oppresses no ono and intrudes
upon no one. It is a party of political
rights and proprieties and refuses to go be
youd these.
Tho Republican party lias different prin
ciples. It pretends to reach all tho wants of
humanity and to accomplish by legislation
all that can be hoped for from morals. It
would control every individual at tho will of
its leaders and dictato to him if it could
whether he should tako his provender witli a
spoon or a fork, and when ho should tako
meat and when mush, or neither or both, and
as to either quantity or quality. In other
words, it essays tho right to control men by
legislation in whatever it chooses to control
to dictato morals and tastes, as well as
tho exercise of rights or tho pursuit of pleas
ure or profit.
While the Democratic party, therefore, de
nies that questions of morals are proper sub
jects of legislative direction, the Republican
party assumes to dictato by that means in
all that relates to human existence. These
generalities explain why tho Democracy
havo no responsibility in connection with
tempcranco legislation and why tho Repub
lican party is responsible. Tho latter party
promised its aid and support to tho Temper
ance cause, but in the supremo hour of
trial, Gov. Hartranft turned his back upon
his party principles to give victory to anti-
tcmpcrance, because, for tho consideration of
a few thousand votes, ho had secretly pledged
himself to do bo! Thero was infamy in that
act becauso it embraced treachery the be
trayal of friends and the betrayal of a cause.
It was corrupt becauso treacherous, dono in
secret, without tho knowlcdgo of tho main
body of his supporters, and for personal and
selfish ends. Tho bargain was a baso ono in
all its phases.
Under thoso circumstances is it any won
der that honest Tempcranco Republicans
set up Republican candidates of their own
way of thinking and sternly repudiate Hart
ranft? Why should Republican editors
nbuso them for refusing to support a candi
date who bargains with their leading ene
mies for their votes, and supplies the power
to defeat and repeal their f.ivorito laws ?
Hartranft has proven himself tho enemy of
a principle these men hold dear, and ho has
treated them and their petitions with utter
contempt. If they havo the spirit of "frco
raen who know their rights and dare main
tain them," they will repudiate Gov. Har
tranft at the ballot box.
A curious fight is maintained against giv
ing our Susquehanna salmon their proper
name, that by which they havo been called
over sinco they havo been known. Tho
most recent effort wo notico in a legal pro
ceeding at Sunbury, whero they are describ
ed as "pike-perch," a sort of elephant-mustard
arrangement. Tho Sunbury American
enlightens us witli tho information that "tho
court decided it had no jurisdiction," but
whether this decision applied to tho offence
charged or especially to "piko-pcrch," its
readers are left sadly in tho dark. "Pike
perch" is decidedly good, but why not call
him a salmon-eel? Man is sometimes do
scribed as "a quadruped that walks erect,"
and at others as a "biped without feathers."
Doubtless cither will answer tho purposo of
description, yet tho animal in question is
not a quadruped and ho is not tho only biped
that Is fcatberlesB. Upon tho saino princi
ple why is it not proper to double up tho
names of two other varieties of fish and ap
ply them In tho singular number to another
that you do not wish to call by its right
Tho last effort on the northern line, that
camo under our notice, to change tho namo
of tlio Susquehanna salmon, was to call him
an Otsego bass, becauso somo kind of white
fish is found in Otsego lake that bears n
rescmblanco to him. Even wero tho fish
identical it would bo difficult to sco why
Otsego should havo preference to Susque
hanna, or why tho namo of tho mushy bass
should bo used in preference to that of tho
flakcy salmon, which latter the flesh of our
Susquchauua salmon so exactly resembles
except that It is not of a roscato color when
boiled. "Pickerel" has at last taken its op
proprlate plaeo among tho meaningless vul
garities and is no longer put forward as an
example of yankco ingenuity in discovering
fugitive words,

Indiana, Venango and some other counties

Judgo Drehcr will havo somo strength in

ono not yet named may carry off the honor
at line.
It will bo tho duty of the Krlo convention
to nominate tho fit candidate who can obtain
tho most votes at tho election, mid tho dele-
gates should scorn to cat their votes selfish

Tho Democrats of Centre county have
nominated Hon. P. Gray Meek, tlio vigilant
and nblo editor of tho liellefonto Watchman,
for Stato Senator, to succeed Hon. W. A
Wallace. Although violently opposed Mr,
Meek was unanimously nominated by tho
convention of his county. Ono of his oppo
ncnts went even to tho extent, probably by
tho instigation of others, ot committing an
assault upon him by striking him while
writing a telegraphic despatch. As Meek is
neither tall nor broad, and wo suspect could
not turn a scalo ngainst a hundred pound
weight, a moro cowardly act could scarcely
bo imagined. Tho fellow who did it narrow
ly escaped mobbing by taking himsolf out of
tho way. Tlio excitement and general feel
ing of resentment was intense. Kxccpt for
the fact that somo of our old friends in Clin
ton (among tlio best of counties) aro candi
dates, Meek ought to bo nominated in tho
district. He is n brilliant star and (except
physically) is an aggrossivo and successful
warrior. Though not an orator ho is a very
active, efficient and experienced legislator.
Every Democrat should bear in mind that
any ono who now attempts to produco or pro
mote discord, by fomenting opposition to or
prejudico against Democratic candidates or
ngainst active members of the party, means
injury to tho party itself and is probably do
ing it moro harm than if ho wero an open
enemy. At tho next election tlio Democrats
will need every voto for their Stato ticket
that they can possibly poll, nnd to this end
cntiro harmony should prevail, so that the
energies of every ono can bo directed to ac.
quiring every possiblo voto for tho Stato

Who Has Our Money?
Elsewhero will bo found tho statement of
Auditor General Temple, showing tlio tax
payers whero State Treasurer Mackcy keeps
tho public funds. Mackey's own bank, tho
Alleghany National, at Pittsburg, lias nearly
three hundred thousand dollars, and a concern
in Philadelphia, termed tho People's Rank,
owned by Itill Kembloand his Pilgrim Ring
has three famdaed and screnty-two thousand
dollars. Thero aro no moro "scaly" institu
tions in tho United States than tho two just
named: compel them to pay over to the
Stato what thoy owe and they aro bankrupt,
Tho largo balanco of from one to two mil
lions of dollars, which has been kept in tho
State Treasury for tho past twelve years, has
been used by tho treasury ring for banking
purposes, and tlio members of this Pilgrim
ring have coined millions out of this bank
ing capital, and not ono dollar of these larce
profits have been returned to tho Stato trcas'
u ry.
To know that this huge palpablo fraud has
been successfully perpetrated upon tho tax
payers of Pennsylvania for a dozen of years
gives cvidonco of tho moral depravity nnd
commercial dcadness of tho people, who, in
a single day, could turn every robber out
without firing a gun. Clearfield Ilepublican
Three Remarkable Things.
It is remarkablo that no Republican
newspaper ventures to defend or deny tho
complicity of Governor Hartranft in tho
robbery of tho Sinking Fund, without an
thority of law, in defianco of a constitution
al prohibition, and against the tenor of his
official oath.
It is no less rcmnrkablo that no Republi
can newspaper bos ventured to defend Gov
ernor Hartrant's veto of tho fee bill, a mea
sure mado necessary by tho now Constitu
tion, which cut down tlio enormous salaries
of certain Republican officials in tho State.
Tt is equally remarkablo that no Republi
can paper has explained his approval of tho
repeal of tlio Sinking Fund act of 1S70,
which mado it necessary for tho Stato Treas
urer to report to tho Auditor General tho
names of tlio corporations and persons with
whom tho public moneys were deposited
once every month. Under tho law approved
by Governor Hartranft, May 9, 1871, the un
restrained custody of tlio moneys in tho
Sinking Fund is given to the Stato Treasu
rer, without any knowledge or assurance
Lupon tho part of any other officer of tho
Stale that such moneys arc safely or properly
bestowed. l'atriot.
Radical Ring Robliery.
In his exhibit of tho Sinking Fund nnd
where deposited, Treasurer Mackey says ?3,
8'J(V18 aro in the Rank of Commerce, Krie,
Pa., and $7,2M,G0 in tlio Venango National
Rank, Franklin, Pa. total $11,120.08. Tho
Venango fijteetator reminds tlio pcoplo that
both theso banks aro utterly broken, and wo
bclievo both havo been out of business for
somo tlmo past. How many more of Mr,
Mackey s pet bauks aro broken wo aro not
iuformed. If ho wero to attempt to collect
the 30,000 dollars Jacob E. Rldgeway has
held for tho last twelve years there would bo
a buzz in tho Radical ring hivo that would
bo refreshing, Thero nro many other sums
in the list a demand for which would raiso a
war in tho ring family. Yet upon tho largo
amount of money theso Radical ring pets
hold averaging two millions of dollars
the people are required to pay the annual inter
est in cash, This is why it is necessary to
tax coal, and to toll every bushel of wheat
tho farmer sells, or dollar's worth of store
goods ho buys (ly tax on tho gross receipts
of railroads,) Tho pcoplo pay tho Radical
treasury ring reaps tho fruits, and tho above
loss of fl 1,000 will bo paid by tho pcoplo,
taken indirectly from tho taxes Imposed up
on nnd paid by them.
FitAcrioNAi, Cuiuu:nct, It is supposed
that a largo percentage, perhaps ono-foutlh
of the fractional currency has been destroyed
by various accidents, and the government
will doubtless gain a considerable sum by
tho failure, neglect or Inability of tho tran
sient owners of this portion of Its paper is
sues to return them for redemption. It is
probable that ten or twelvo millions of dol
lars may ho realized by tho national treasu
ry In this manner, but of all forms of rais
ing money this is ono of the most discredit
able. It exposes tho pcoplo to a great deal
of inconvenience and final loss mainly
through a neglect of tho government to per
form what is ouo of its most important
functions in ordinary times tho colnago
of small denominations of metallic money
to servo as a circulating medium for all tho
small transactions of tho community, Tho
government thus profits by its own money,
