at the expense of tho Stato than any other

Tho New Orleans limes pays Wendell
Phillips this handsome compliment : "Ho
was brought tip on tho bottle. For the first

child, with a vigorous stomach. His nurse
always stood him on his head at night to

Tho Mercer Tress says: "Rev. Audley
Jlrowne, the temperance candidate for gov

of absenco by his church in New Castle.
Here is Hartranft's opportunity to challenge
Hrowne to meet him before the people on his
approval of local option repeal. No matter
how anxious Hrowno may bo to avoid meet

no reasonable excuse for declining. Will

For a commentary on Iladical rule look
upon suffering Louisiana. Throttled by tho
usurping hirelings of a centralizing adminis

and abroad, it presents tho sorriest sight of
any Stato in the Union. At last thero is
hope for Louisiana. After years of misrule

Gov. Hartranft is getting as fastidious
about lib horses as that other executive
named Grant. In tho recent examination of
the papers of tho Stato Treasurer's office a

appears that the turn of $1,000.11 has been

"Itccords" and Availildlity.
iV cotemporary says Mr. Huckalew was a
very proper candidate for Governor three
years ago, "but his opponents raked up his
war record and thereby excited a prejudice
that defeated him." Wo arc then left to in
fer that this sage wants a candidate who lias
no record Some fellow who has never
done anything worth noting or putting upon
paper, of whom "nobody knows nothing,
green, inexperienced, untutored by trial, too
ignorant to have an opinion or too cowardly
to express one! And such miserable twad
dle is copied by other papers as expressions
of wisdom. If it is, then reputation for in
tegrity, ability, honor, firmness and experi

be the best of candidates! Bosh ! Giyo lis

If a man is to be killed by such use of his
"record" as was mado of Mr. Ruckalcw's on
tho subject of the war, th!n he may as read
ily bo murdered without a record as with
one. The representations of Kusscl Erret,
(which was the record used by the Republi
cans) in that regard were unparalled auda
cious misrepresentations of the record and
downright false statements. If such things
are to control people's votes they may as read
ily be perpetrated upon no record at all as up
any. Givo us candidates well known to tho peo
ple men in wlioo honesty and ability the
voters may justly havo confidence because
they havo been tried and proved. Of the
availability of such candidates thero can be
no doubt after tho fair trial by the Demo
crats of Ohio. In fact wherever tried tho
result has proven that able, honest, bold
statesmen, whose characteristics arc well es
tablished and known of all men, are always
the strongest candidates if they havo no im
portant local prejudices against them and
are not identified with some unpopular meas

Mr. Wm. Welsh, n prominent Philadelphia
an, who is one of the Indian peace commis
sioners, has long been engaged in exposing
the frauds perpetrated upon both the Federal
government and upon tho Indians, by tho
agents and contractors appointed by tho for
mer to furnish the latter with supplies. Ho
drove Indian llureau commissioner Parker
from office by proving that ho connived at
thcso frauds. Also John Delano, chief clerk
and son of the Secretary of tho luterior.
Mr. Welsh is now engaged in firing his heavy
artillery into tho Secretary himself, who is
proved to have all along been tho protector
and patron of the rogues who aro cheating
tho Indians nnd causing them to commit
murders and threaten war to tho extent that
requires tho whole U. S. army to keep them
at peace. Mr. Welsh is evidently on tho
death track, and is determined not only to
expose the villainy of Delano nnd compel his
resignation, but to literally destroy him and
tho President loo. if the latter does not removo
him from office. Delano is not only tho
greatest rascal hut tho meanest official In the
cabinet, and even Uioko who wish tho Presi
dent no good join tho unanimous public
voice in demanding his removal. Tho only
reason ho was not turned out long ago is be
cause tho nubile desired It. A white wash
ing commltteo baa been appointed by tho
President at tho request of Delano, which Is
expected to avoid tho witnesses who know
any thing about tho charges, and by examin
ing only such as havo Information through
others, to bo ablo to report that tho charges
aro based on hearsay I Delano promises to
resign If ho is let down In that easy manner.

COLUMBIAN AND DEMOCRAT, BLOOMSBURG, COLUMBIA COUNTY, PA
The Democratic convention of Lycoming
county, on Tuesday, unanimously nominated
Robert P. Allen, Esq., of Wltllamspott, for
Stato Senator, with authority to nppoint his
ownconferecs, nnd also passed thejfollowlng
Hctolted, That the representation of the
counties in this Senatorial district should be
the same as the restiectlve counties arc cnll
tied to iu tho House of .Hcprcs?utntlvcs,
ami mat llio senatorial eonlcrces bo request'
ed to meet at Willlainsport.
So far as the representation of tho respect
ivo counties of tho district Is concerned,
this is in accordance with tho recommenda
tion of the last Senatorial conferenco held in
tlio district and with lio action of the Colum
bia countv Democratic convention. The
basis proposed Is a just one nnd ought to bo
acceded to without murmur, as thero can be
no possible good reason why a Democrat in
Sullivan or Montour should have as much
weight in making n nomination as three or
four in Columbia or four or fivo in Ly'
Mr. Allen is a leading lawyer at tho Wil
liamsport bar and a gentleman of high per
sonal character, qualified for Senator and
would bo a candidate worthy of his party.
In all these respects, however, ho is equalled
by Mr. Harklcy, the candidate of Columbia,
and willi the superior Democratic majority
of this county wo think tlio latter ought to
have the preference.
The following is tlio balance of tho Ly
Register and Recorder Frederick Hess.

Dr. Wm. F. Logan, Dr. II. II. Martin,
and Joshua Taggart, Esq., wero elected del
egates to tlio Eric convention with imani
moils instructions to support Col. A.C. Noyes
Tlio ticket is a strong one, made up of fit
candidates, and will be elected. Although
tlio nominee for Register and Recorder is a
very worthy and deserving man, we regret
the defeat of Col. Seeley, of tho Jersey
Shore Herald, who has given a considerable
life of devoted, unselfish and efficient service
to tlio Democratic party, and now bejining
to bo well stricken in years deserves and
needs some of the favors of the party. It
is to be hoped the Democracy will do better
bv him in the future.
The Democratic county convention met at
1 1 iville on Monday and nominated tho fol-
I' wiug ticket ;

District Attorney L. K. Mmvrer.
Commissioners Wm. J. McKee, James
Auditors W. D. Weidenheimer, F. C.
Delegate to Stato Convention J. C. Am-
Tho county ticket is a good ono and ought
to be elected. As Mr. Clialfant is now before
tho district for re-election, it is proper for
bun to explain why ho did not vote when
the bill was before tho Senate which exclud
cd the sinking fund from the observation of
the Auditor General by repealing the law
which required the Stato Treasurer to make
monthly reports to the Auditing department
of the amount on hand and where-deposited
The New York World, Lancaster Intelligen
cer, and other reputable papers, havo fre
quently stated that ho was present when the
bill passed, and yet there is no evidence, of
opposition by him by protest or vote, and ho
has offered no explanation. As he is now
officially named for re-election the people of
tho district arc entitled to an explanation.
The Democratic convention of Northum
bealand county, on Monday last, nominated
George W. Strino for Sheriff, W. R. F. Wci-
mer for I'rothonotary, D. C. Dissinger for
Treasurer, and D. S. Reitzand H. Henrio for
Commissioners. Tho nominations aro all
most worthy ones, but that of Mr. Strino for
Sheriff is particularly commendable. Ho is a
mechanic, a hard working and earnest Dem
ocrat, and an honest man. Although North
umberland of late years lias become a close
county politically, we do not doubt that Mr.
Strinc's merits and personal popularity will
ensure his election by a large majority. Ho
is eminently worthy tlio mo-t generous sup
port his party can give him.
Hartranft to lio Withdrawn.
It is understood that tlio Republican Stato
leaders who do not belong to tlio Treasury
ring aro discussing tho propriety of with
drawing Gov. Hartranft from thccanvass.md

Robert Audley Hrowne. A majority of tlio

aro in no wise apprehensivo of a blunder
thero and aro at a loss to conceive what
grounds the Republicans have to hopo for
such a result. A Republican union upon

Since tlio temperanco people havo put

their being nut of humor because thoy havo

Taken as a mas the American peoplo not
only lovo to bo humbugged, but they lovo
tomfoolery too. As illustratlvo of this It
may bo Mtggcstcd, as every ono knows, that
the greatest matters of public or patriotic
concern cannot assemble so largo n crowd as
ono of Itanium's humbug circusses, that nny
absurd project that pos'esscs novelty will pro
duce nt least general national gabble, and
that almost any pleco of iionenso opposed
will divide the nation Into contending fac
tions. Tlius,recently, an agricultural society
iu Illinois, for novelty pako no doubt, invited
.It'll', Davis to deliver nn orntionnt its annual
meeting. Deeply and directly Interested In
projects for tho improvement nnd extension
of commerce on tlio Mississippi and its trib
utaries, Davis accepted the invitation. There
upon n batch of fools at the head of tho or
ganl.ation known as tho "grand army of tho
Republic," started up mi opposition and sent
a long protest to Davis. Ho of courso do.
cllned to bo mixed up in such a muss and
withdrew his acceptance. Hut such a prolif
ic piece of tomfoolery could not be sullcred
to die out after such a brief life. Now the
mails aro literally loaded with invitations
from agricultural societies all along tho Mis
sissippi, throughout the western States, ex
tending into Pennsylvania, New Jersey, ivc.

ever so much Invited to deliver agricultural

cause a few cowardly shoulder strapped and

not because of respect for him, but to rebuke
fools by another sett who aro not much bet

fuss about nothing. Hut peoplo who like
such harmless amusements as acting the fool
havo a right to enjoy themselves it they do
no harm to any body. Of course free conn

Hrrors of Meillcal I'raclitlonors.
Tho Reading Oaietle notes tho fait that
Mr. Mulliollaiid, n prominent gentleman of
that city, died recently, as was supposed,
from consumption of tho lungs. Ho always
maintained, It is stated, that his lungs were
not diseased, hut his physicians nt Heading
declared that his wholo disease consisted in
atuberctilar affection of them. Dr. DctVln,
who is quoted as "tho leading physician of
Philadelphia," declared that ono lobe of the
lungs was entirely gone and the other teri
ouly affected by tubercles. Mr. Mul
liollaiid was advised to travel south, which
ho did, nnd there physicians told him the
same story. Finally ho died and a pos1
mortem examination established tlio fact
that his lungs wero not nll'ected at all, by
tubercles, or other disease, but that tho liver
wrs almost entirely decayed i
Iu Daniel Webster's lnt illness tho most
eminent physicians of Hoton doctored him
for ulceration of tho bowels, and when they
discovered that none of their remedies had
tlio least effect upon these they pronounced
his caso hopeless. A post mortem examina
tion revealed the fact that there was noth
ing wrong with tlio bowels, but that diseased
liver caused death. Tho ulcerations of the
latter discharged into tlio former and they
had performed their proper function in car
rying off tlio offensive matter. This they
did notwithstanding the doctoring to pre
vent them, and for that reason great Web
ster was given over as incurable. The phy
sicians, however, complacently informed the
public that if they had known what disease
affected tho distinguished patient they could
not have cured or relieved him.
Hut people should not for such reasons dc
preciato nnnlical science. Physicians can
not take a patient to pieces, like a machine,
nnd see what is out of order. At best they
can only make up n judgmemt from symp
toms. Most diseases clearly dcvclope them
selves, but many it is often impossible to
detect. Perhaps tho best suggestion to make
is that peoplo should obtain such physiolog
ical knowledge of themselves as to be able to
give tlio physician efficient aid iu detecting
the diseased parts.

The Erie Observer warns tlio Democracy
that all the hotels in that city together will
not be ablo to give beds to more than fiOO
persons, even by doubling, and tliereforo it
suggests to delegates to secure rooms in ad
vance. The Observer further adds :
Our citizens will do their best to take caro
of such persons as are tinablo to tret into tho
hotels, but as the exact number who will be
bcrc cannot bo known until the timo comes,
tlio ililliculty ot providing lor tlicm in nu
vance will bo appreciated. In caso any ex
perieiico trouble iu getting accommodations,
wc trust they will remember that the Conven
tion was placed hero not only without the
solicitation but ncainst tho advico of our
representative men, and that tho people of
J.ne nave ilono their utmost lo make me
best of nu embarrassing dilemma.
There was no excuse for forcing tlio con
volition upon Erie, against tlio wishes of its
citizens, who were well aware of the want of
hotel room for such a crowd as would proba
bly gather, but tho generous people of that
city yet seem determined to do all they can
to render thoso comfortable who attend on
the occasion. Wero they to leave them out
in tho cold they could not fairly bo censured
under tho circumstances, Hut our advice to
all who aro not delegates is lo stay at home,
whero they can at least find bed room,

Tlio Eiiston Sentinel thus alludes to the
scandalous act of Governor Hartranft in ta
king the money of the Stato to pay for his
stable doors :
Governor Hartranft is getting as fastidious
about his horses as that other executive
named Grant. Iu tho recent examination
of tlio papers in tho State Treasurer's office
a warrant turned up on tho face of which it
appears that the sum of $1,0(10.11 lias been
paid for walnut doors for the Governor's
horso stable and the further sum of $1,350
for carpets lor Ins earnairo house, 1'rolKV
hlv the next that money will lie paid for will
bo mirrors so that tlio horses can seo them
selves while standing iu the stable.
Thero it is again, nnd it is getting worse
and worse. Thirteen hundred and fifty did
lars for carpets for his carriago house! Well,
really this tiling is getting decidedly inter
cstlng. As the Sentinel observes, tho noxt
thing will probably bo mirrors that the
horses can seo themselves in, or lounges for
them to lio down on. Now, wo don't object
to this so far as tlio horses themselves nro
concerned. Wo believe in kind treatment of
tlio hruto creation, and tlio horso particular'
ly ought to bo mado comfortable. Ho is an
invaluable animal, and is deserving of tho
gratitudo of mankind. We aro willing that
he shall have walnut doors for his stnblo or
carpets for his stalls, but wo insist that the
owner who desires to havo his. steeds provi
ded for in this way, shall pay the ejjiense of
so providing for them out of his own pocket.
Wo aro not willing that ho shall reach into
our pocket or Into tho pockets of our neigh-
bore and steal what littio money wo havo in
order that ho may bo enabled to put on style
without cost to himself. And particularly
does this view of tlio caso striko us, when
tlio man who docs it is independently rich,
and is rccclvingSlO.OOO a year to boot. This
Is just what Hartranft has done. Saved his
own money (of which ho has slathers) and
used ours. Just let us see for a moment
what thcso two items amount to : First, for
tlio walnut doors fl,0C9.11, and for carpets
for his carriago hotiso $1,850 making a to
tal of 2,110.11, expended for tho beautify
ing of his stable. And all of this money
taken out of tho treasury without authority
of law and In direct deihinco of decency and
right. Hereafter, if tho peoplo aro to bo
taxed for tho purpose of keeping up tho
Governor's stables whllo ho rolls In wealth
and gels $10,000 a year beside, they had bet
ter know it beforehand. Two thousand four
hundred and nineteen dollars and cloven cents
for walnut doors and carpets for a horso
stable I And all paid for by tho people.

Tlio Taxation, Extravagance and Oppression
Wo extract tho following from n brief
speech recently made before n convention
In Chester county by R. E. Monaghan, Esq.
It is a plain exhibit nnd one that tho people
hoiild not pass over without serious thought.
It impreses the lesson that must become
apparent to every thinking man, viz : that
the extraordinary salaries and enormous
taxation of Federal, Stato and municipal
go eminent- must be brought down or the
people iiiut become bankrupt. Mr. Mon
aghau said :
Tho question now interesting the peoplo is
whether their general nnd Stato governments
shall lio carried nn for their advantage or in
the intoiest of cliques and rings? Tlilslslhe
question tlio peoplo nro now agitating and
The crops arc good, tho products of Iron
and oilier manufactured articles arc consum
ed as never before, vet wo find business par-
ulyzed and a financial panic o'crsprcauing
the whole country. What is the cause of all
this? It can be nono other than bad govern
ment tho truth is, we arc managing our
local, State and National affairs corruptly
and at too great cost.
His statistics taken from tho reports of tlio
departments nnd traced from tlio general
government to tlio lowest offices in the laud
showed the expenses of each incrp.isnil from
ono bundled to three hundred per cent.
Lincoln's salary was ?25,000, nnd now for
the first timo in tlio history of the govern
ment the salary of the President has been
doubled without the first iota of cause, with
none demanding it, excepting the chief ex
ecutive himclf. Extravagance In govern

wnnjiiv-, in uiu inner uepariiunuis, inn inc
tame uilu of an increase would be found nn.
pile-able tocaeh iindnll. Coining nearer home
wc find the same condition of our govern
mental affairs. Take Pennsylvania, Curtin's
salary in 1SC2 was f.'i.UOO, "and now for the
nisi, mm.' iii iiiu nisiory oi ine ciate, me
Governor's salary is $10,000, an increase of
ono hundred percent. In 1SG2. tlio eencral
expenses of tho Stato Government were
flTO.OOO, while in 1874 they amounted to
$1,090,000, an increase of ono hundred nnd
fifty per cent. Go ir you plcaso to the legis
lative and judicial departments, it is tho
same. In counties and cities tho rate of in
crease ranges from one hundred to two
hundred and fifty per cent. Thcso are the
secrets of our hard times. If men should
farm in the same way and increase their ex
penses to tlio same extent, they would be
soon bankrupt. Ami tho worst of it is, that
it is our money that is thus recklessly squan
deredmoney taken from the pockets of the
lauorers ana business men ol tlio country
and a paralization of every industry has nne
ever will bo the result.
Our government to-day, though Republic
can in form, in practice moro closely re
sembles an Aristocracy. Tlio distinctive
feature between them is, that the former is
made and governed by the people for the
people, and tho latter is ruled by a few, and
for tho benefit of the rulers. And when a
State, under whatever name it may be called,
is managed for the advantage of" the office
holders, it ceases to lie a Republic for tho
people, and becomes an Aristo;raey or per
sonal government. In an Aristocracy the
few flourished but the many suffer, llings
anil ringstcrs nro rapidly becoming tlio
.ristocracyoi our country ; and wlicrever in
power their will is as despotic, extravagant,
and corrupt as that of any Aristocracy on
Alas, at the head of our ring ruled States

Mr. Momi"haii hero drew a startlinc con
trast in statistics between a number of our
Tims wc see wherever States are uncon
trolled by corrupt rings salaries aro kept
steadily down to a fair standard, and in the
ring-ruled States tlio more potent tho ring
tlio higher the salaries. Compare tho sala
ries of tho Governors of thcso to classes of
States, cither on a population or property
basis, and the extravagance will appear more
These startling contrasts show that wc are
ruled to ruin by allowing ourselves to be
ruled by rings. Our peoplo are overburden
ed with taxation. Tlio State, county, city
and town taxation of tlio United States, ex
clusive of that by the Federal Government
for tho year 1S00 was in tlio aggregate
$03,774,421, and for 1870, ten years threaf
tcr, the taxes for tho same purpose over the
samo territory wero $277,802,105 an in
crease of nearly three hundred per cent.
How long can this bo endured? lfow long
can any nation stand such taxation? How
far distant is bankruptcy if this be not
stopped ? Now it is not so easy to pay taxes
as in 1800, when comparatively freo from
debt. To-day ho was told by an intelligent
man that in one of the wealthiest townships
iu Che.-tcr county there wero only three
properties free from mortgages mid liens.
Resides our individual liabilities, a huge
mortgage in the shape of our public debts
rests upon nil our possessions. The Federal
debt is $2,100,000,000, of which Pennsylva
nia's share is one-tenth, or $210,000,000 ; to
which adding our county, city ami Stato
debt of $100,000,000, we have the mortgage
of this Stato nt over $310,000,000 Each
year Pennsylvania pays over $15,000,000 in
terest on this great debt, and as no ono to
day thinks of dishonoring any public obli
gation, wo must eventually pay tlio huge
principal. Yet this burden must be borne
while over $2,000,000 improperly taken from
tho pockets of tlio people by taxation lie for
years iu our Trea-ury, on which corrupt
ringsteis may speculate and carry on privatu
Our remedy as in individual enterprises
must be by curtailment of expenses, which
wo cannot hone for from tlio Republican
party. And tlio demand of tho people of
Pennsylvania should be for a reduction of
both salaries ami office-holders. Tlio form
er nro far too huge, and of Iho latter wo
have many who should be discharged and
mado producers instead of consumers. Sal
aries must be reduced to tho lowest point at
which wo can command tho services of our
best men. And when we can havo pood men
for low salaries, wisdom demands in our crip
pled condition tnnt wc should take mem.
Tlio thousands of men looking towards und
scrambling for office prove that wo may easily
reduce salaries without injury to tho public
Fraud and peculation have become so no
torious at Washington that even tho court
journals begin to discount it by anticipation.
Tlio Washington Chroniclcxn referring to the
prospective investigation of tlio afliiirsof tlio
Washington navy yard says: "When a
congressional investigation committee begins
its work on this institution, as it surely will,

Tho Parmer's Friend, tho Pennsylvania or
gan of tho Grangers, makes tho following
suggestion ; "It is altogether probable that
250,000 Patrons of Husbandry will visit
Philadelphia during tlio Centennial ; and it
is also probable that one-half of this num
ber could so arrange their nflnlrs as to bo iu
tho city at tho samo time. Suppose, then a
time that would bo likely to suit tlio greater
number were appointed, n place selected nnd
engaged for a grand national mass meeting
of Patrons, a score of stands erected, and
speakers appointed from among our mem
bers in all tho States, Territories, and Cana
da, is it not possiblo for us to have ono of
the grcutest demonstrations of tlio nineteenth
century? This tan bo done if tho Patrons
deslro It, and tho moral effect of such a
meeting would bo greater than that of any
convention yet held by Patrons."
