Tho Republican papers arc regaling their

That John F. Hartranft is the first Snlarv
Grabber who has dared to ask tho people of
this Slato for their votes! Ho struggled to
bo elected wlien tho salary was $.1,000 a year.
No sooner was ho elected than he. struggled
to have it increased to 10,000 a year. Ho
succeeded, and although ho agreed to serve
for f.i.OOO he has been pocketing $10,000 a
year ever since.
Wo guess that about this time tho Repub
licans have concluded that they did not carry
North Carolina or its Constitutional conven
tion. The latter body has organized with n
full list of Democratic officers from President
down. All tho Republicans and a portion
of the Democrats wero opposed to making
any amendments nt this time, nnd this is
why the former succeeded in electing nearly
half the delegates and that is tho oulv vic
tory they had.
Wm. II. Shoemaker represented this Sen
ntorial district in tho Krio convention, nnd
C. U. Uroekway and Warren .1. liuckalew
were tho representative delegates, Mr
Shoemaker generally voted for Noyes, and
tho others generally for Iiigler for Governor,
hut all cast somo complimentary ballots,
On tho final ballot, and some others, they
voted for Judgo Pershing.
For Treasurer Messrs. Shoemaker nnd
Buckalew voted for Mr. Piolett on each bal
lot after tho first, and Mr. Prockway for W.
It. Playford.

We give all the points of interest in our
report of tho proceedings of the Stato cor.

gather ours as best wo can from despatches

Tho convention determined nttho outstart

After tho 11th ballot the nomination of
Hon. Cyrus L. Pershing was mado unanimous,
amidst tremendous applause and cheering.
Tho convention proceeded to ballot for 1 reus.
urcr. Tho Unit ballot was too promiscuously
scattered among beggars for "complimentary
votes" to mako it worth recording. Mr,
Tiollet was not started as it candidate until
tho 2d ballot was about being taken, lie

Like tho dulchman's r.un who "got nbovo
his business" by jumping over tho fenco from
tho pasture of tlio sheep to that of tho cows,
the delegates to tho Erlo convention got
themselves mixed with tho Federal finances,
with what success our readers may sco by
reference to tho 7th resolution. The ques
tion is ono with which tho Stnto nud this
election havo nothing to do. Xcxt yenr,
when tliero is a President nud Congressmen
to elect, it may have practical importance,
but not until then.
Tlio business of tho Eric convention was
to deal with Stato affairs and in that regard
it has dono most nobly. It has given us
candidates who are eminently qualified for
tho positions named and nro eminently prop-1
cr men, nud ns to State alllilrs has laid down
a platform that re-alllrms Democratic con
victions and plainly expresses Democratic
purposes. 'Ihose points were witliin tlio lino
of Its duty and of its instructions, and its ac
tion in that regard meets with universal
It is to ho hoped that tho Democratic press
and speakers will seo tho Importance of
charging homo upon tho Radicals their mis
government, dishonesty, extravagance and
corruption, in both State and Federal affairs,
but especially as regards the latter, and that
they will steadily refuse to bo diverted from
this grand purpose by any attempts of the
opposition to mnko tho finances an issue.
Tho people want to redeem the Stato from
corrupt and oppressive misrule, from extrav
agant expenditure nud squandering of pub
lic money. That is tho solo business now
and at this election, nnd let us not bo divert
ed from the discussion of that purpose. Of
courso the Radical press and orators will do
their best to get up discussion on other mat
ters and bring them in issue, just as they try
to bring forward the war that closed ten
b.ars ago, in order to distract attention from
nho wroncs their ollicials havo nernotrnti'il
a - i--i -
upon tho people. Rut let the Democracy
every where stick to the text and not bo fool
ed into the discussion of irrelevant subjects.
Tho cxtravaganco and corruption of llart
ranft's administration and tho Treasury Ring
of Stato plunderers, and tho gross corruptions
of tho Grant government and his third term
aspirations form tlio text of the issue at this
election. Let us stick to those issues and
not bo diverted from them.
Tlio Xcxt (lovcrnqr.
Cyrus L. Pershing is not only tho Dcmo-ci-.uie
nominee but ho will bo tho next Gov
ernor of Pennsylvania. Ho is a very able
man, an honest man whoso integrity lias
never been questioned, and ho is a vigorous
reformer in whom all who desire a return to
economical and just administration can have
tho fullest confidence. When Pershing be
comes Governor dishonest legislation will
stop, tlio revenues of the Stato will bo hon
estly applied, and squandering and extrava
gance will cease. Of these things his whole
public as well as private life give tho fullest
Judgo Pershing served fivo consecutivo
yeais in tho Legislature, representing Cam
bria county, where ho was born and reared,
and he can point to his honorable rcconl as
the sure proof cf his integrity and fitness for
Governor. Although our Stato Legislature,
under Republican sway, was about as cor
rupt a body as existed any where, no man
impeached or ever suspected tho integrity of
Mr. Pershing. Always nt his post, and
always discharging his full duty, his record
as a legislator is without a flaw and without
an act that raises suspicion either against his
ability to judgo correctly or his motive to net
honestly. So high did ho stand nftcr this
long service that tho Democracy of tho Stato
lSti'J nominated him for Judgo of the
Supremo court, but he was defeated by tho
same system of fraud and f.ilso counting that
defeated tho election of Judgo Packer for
Governor nt tho same time. Rut ho was not
long suffered to remain in private life. Tho
people of Schuylkill county, without distinc
tion of paity and without solicitation, in
1873 elected him a Judge of their courts by
a majority of over three thousand votes. In
that position ho has discharged his duty with
accustomed ability. Rut recently tho
Commissioners of that county were brought
before him upon a chargo of fraud in swin
dling the county in the erection of an alms
houso barn. Under his correct ruling the
charges were established and tho guilty par
ties convicted. Ho sentenced them to two
years imprisonment and ouo thousand dol
lars lino each, to restore tho sums improper
ly taken from the county, to removal from
oflico and prohibiting them from holding of
fice hereafter, and to stand committed until
tlio sentence was complied with. They wero
held proves, two wero Democrats and ono a
Republican, and ono of tho former it was
shown did not participate in the frauds fur
ther than to let them go on without opposi
tion. In sentencing them Judgo Pershing,
in remarks wo shall hereafter publish fully,
referred to tho pain it gavo him to send
men of their standing to the fcllon's cell, but
said that fraud hud become, so common in
official position that ho felt it a high duty to
imposo severe scutenco as a lesson to nil
either public officers who might como within
rim inri.ilir'lwin nf lilj i..nrf MMilj
affords a striking cxamplo of what Judgo
Pershing will do with peculating officials
when ho is eluded Governor. It gives a
guaranty to tlio people that tho beginning of
his administration will mark the end of olli
cial rascality, that tho rights and interests of
Vho tax-payers and upright peoplo of this
commonwealth will l,o protected, and that
impartial justieo will bo dealt to all with a
firm hand.
Judgo Pershing was several times n Dem
ocratic candidate for Congress, anil always
ran considerably ahead of his ticket, but was
defeated becauso of tho overwhelming Re
publican majority of tho district. Ho Is now
about fifty years of age, in tlio prinio anil
vigor of matured intellect. His election
will bring back the pure and uoblo times of
Francis R. Sliunk and glvo to Pennsylvania
au administration that will form a laud
mark in tho history of American govern
Tlio nomination of Judgo Pershing Is re
eclved with enthusiasm all over tho State,,
not only by Democrats, but by conservative
men and advocates of reform of all parties,
Ills nomination was not brought about by
arrangement of politicians, hitt by tho popu
lar demand for nn honest, sterling, able man
who would bo sure to put an end to govern
mental abuses and oppression. Tho peoplo
will flock to his standard. Wherever per
sonally known ho will run far beyond his
party strength. Ho will command tho votes
of nil intelligent men who demand a reduc
tion of tho immciiHo annual expenditures of
our Stato government jo tho economy of tho
olden time, and who desiro Just and honest
administration and a strict accountability of
all public officers,
Stale Treasurer-Col. l'iollet.
Past differences arising from local issuos
whllo Columbia, Bradford and other counties
formed a Congressional district, render tho
nomination of Col. l'iollet somewhat dis
tasteful to a portion of tho Democracy here,
but it is to bo hoped that every feeling of
hostility will bo submerged when cool rcllec
tlon upon tho importance of the Isstio per
forms its proper ollico.
That Col, Piollct Is eminently qualified
for tho position of Stato Treasurer wo pro
sumo nono will dispute. That when ho en
ters upon tlio duties of tho ofllco ho will take
particular palm to ferret out nnd cxposo nil
the frauds that havo in tho past been com
mitted iqioii tho people, and that ho has am
ple qualifications fur the task, will no doubt
bo admitted by nil. In fact, in theso respects,
ho probably has no mipcrlor nnd few equals
in the Slate. That tho peoplo would bo Im
mensely benefitted, therefore, by his elec
tion, is apparent. Can any Democrat, then,
hcsllato as to his duty in tlio case? If nmad
dog wore approaching any ono in dangerous
proximity ho would not stop to choose
mong his friends who should knock tlio dog
own, or caro whether it was friend or ene
my wlio did it. Tho Treasury Ring is now
in that attitude. It is the mad dog in tho
path tho enemy to bo destroyed. That can
and will be dono by Col. Piollct's election.
His defeat would continue tho Ring nnd in
crease Its powers and usurpations. Can tiny
honest man of good sense licsitnto in ills
choice? Shall privato resentment or patri
otic emotions prevail? Rut ono nnswer is
Col. l'iollet has been a life-long Democrat,
and though recently very prominent among
the Grangers of the State, it was his Demo
cratic instincts thnt led him there. A
Frenchman by blood he has no doubt, ns al
leged, been too impulsivo to bo always dis
creet ho may nttinies of excitement havo
uttered what his cooler judgment would con
demn but under and over all that is the
admitted nud most important fact that when
poso mem to tlio people, recover haclc a
gieat part of tho sums lost, and put a com
plcto stop to all the dishonest practices thatij
havo characterised tho treasury manage
incut ol tho itauicais. lie is therefore a
proper man for tho times just tlio kind of
candidate that is needed, and ouo who ns au
officer will fill tho demands of tho peoplo.
Rally, tlKTcfore, for the reform nominees
for tho men who will do what you want
done in State affairs.

leaders. "Well, let him bo a Granger I That
does not hurt any body nnd does not consti
tute a reason nor will it havo the effjet to
induco nny Democrat or reformer to voto

among tho office-holders it would bo far bet

Tlio Senatorial Conference Duty of Harmony
Tho Senatorial conference of this district
will conveno nt Williamsporton Wednesday
September 22, at 2 o'clock, as has been ar
ranged by representatives of tho several
counties. A protracted struggle may bo an
ticipated but ought to bo prevented if possi
blc. Tills is a time for unanimity of action
above any that havo over preceded it or are
.likely to occur for years to come. In the
great battle of tho people against corrupt
rings, peculation and fraud, every sacrifice
ought to bo mado and endured for the peo
ple's cause, and nil unseemly struggles for
placo by Democratic leaders ought to be
avoided. Tho whole energy of tho party
ought to bo united against tho corruptionisls
and used solely for their destruction. Who-
ever docs any thing to prevent this is a more
effective enemy to the caiiso than any open
Then let us havo harmony. The confer
ccs from Columbia will be tho only ones
present who havo been appointed by a con
vention and aro therefore representatives di
rectly of the party of their county. Those
of tho other counties aro appointed by tlio
candidates (by authority of tlicir conventions)
but aro therefore merely representatives of
tho candidates. As such the candidates they
represent aro responsible for their action.
These, however, may bo appealed to (safely
wo hope) to havo the great interests of tho
party and through it of tho country, in view,
rather than the interests of mere candidate.
Wo appeal to all to avoid discord and divi
sion, or long protracted session, and to give
,their party a unanimous nominee who will
bo a faithful mid efficient representative, ns
well ns n creditable candidate. Let tho as
pirants show their manhood by tho exhibi
tion of honorable unselfishness and heart
felt desire for union and harmony. If noth
ing else, will do, toss up, draw cuts, join the
army, or do anything clso lionornblo to put
au end to struggle. All this, however, an to
a nominee wdio will bo a proper candidate
and au honest representative of tlio princi
ples and purposes of his party.
llarfraiift's Extravagance.
Tho snobish attempt of Gov. Hartranft to
imitate a sort of regal splendor is costing"
tho people a round sum besides making both
Governor aixl people ridiculous. Ho keeps
around him the following personal attend
ants, at the salaries set opposlto their names,
paid by tho Stato:
Private Secretary, '- - - 53,000
Clerk to said Secretary, - - 1 ,-100
Messenger, - ... yuo
Errand Roy, .... -100
Tho privato secretary imposes all tho work
upon tho clerk, at present, and spends his
timo In Philadelphia as secretary of tho Re
publican Statu Committee. Thu messenger
is nliseut on tho sumo business, and tho boy
does his work. That is tlio way tho people's
money goes, though theso nro only items.
There is no law lor any of tho above offi
ces. Twenty years ago ono messenger,
without ussistant, was enough for tho Ex
ecutive, Ktato and School Departments,
During Pollock's Republican administration
ono was appointed for each of the-o depart
ments, and now Gov. HartraulVH inc.sciiger
has an assistant in tlw "errand boy I" Dur
ing Gov. Packer's administration ouo of tho
clerks was detailed as private secretary, with
a salary of $(500, which was taken from the
salaries of other clerks, and therefore added
no expense. Rut now this "private secre
tary" icccivos $3,000 per year, as much av
Democratic Governors used to get, und lias
n clerk at a salary of $1,1001
With such examples of snobish cxtrava
ganco It Is no wonder that thu expenses of
llurlranfl's administration are mora than
double those of any of his predecessors und
aro nearly, or qulto thrco times ns much as
tho expenses of any of his Democratic pre
decessors! When nil is counted they will
bo found to exceed thrco times ns much.
If tlio tax-payers stand all this, the proba
bility is that it will bo doubled in a future
term 1
Tho Tidal Wavo Gathering Strength As
It Rolls On!
Tho Republicans havo barely escaped de
struction In Maine, heretofore one of their
strongest and most reliable holds I In 1872
Grant had 32,000 majority, though Greeley
was popular in Maine, nnd Radical majori
ties havo ranged from 15,000 to 40,000 for

And now Democrats, your duty is nsplnin
as a jilkc-stnff'. Tliero can bo no such thing
a misunderstanding it. It is simply this:
ORGANIZl'5 thoroughly in every town,
township, ward and nrecluct. and do it
promptly. You havo everything to encour-
ago you to sucn action, l our standard hear
ers have been named, and aro ready to lead
you on to victory. Rut victoricsare not trcn-
erally won by mere rabbles. At tho polls
all men's votes count nliko; but the men
must bo brought to tho polls in order to
mako their votes effective. On tho day of
election every vote should bo polled, and to
accomplish this, dlscipliuo is vitally neces
sary. Discipline and effective organization
co hand and hand tosrether. They aro in
separably connected, and when brought into
play aro next to invincible. To work then
at once and secure tho rnzo now offered to
you, Vhila. hremmj Chronicle.
All that is good, and it is to bo hoped that
every Democrat in Columbia comity will
act upon tho suggestions of tho Chronicli
which aro not new, but tho valuo of which
have been tested in many a cainnaisn.
ORGANIZIO, in clubs and otherwise, every
where, therefore, and prepare to poll every
possidlo vole, and to take every ono from tho
opposition that is possible. Lcavo no stone
Rut no Democrat will fail to observe that
any attempt at discord, any division within
.the party, any "volunteering" of candidates,
must have tho effect to injure if not prevent
such thorough organization ns tlio times
require. Any man who now offers himself
as a volunteer candidato does so with his
eyes open to tho fact that ho thereby injures
his party, abstracts strength and votes from
Judgo Pershing ho will thereby provo that
ho is altogether selfish, and docs not caro for
Democratic success at this important crisis,
but that ho is ready and willing to sacrifice
tho cause of Democracy to gratify his own
personal ambition.
Therefore, Democrats, if you would bo
strong and do your utmost for success, frown
down all attempts at discord, all family
quarrels, and organize thoroughly, in every
township, und where practicable in every
locality. In this good work tho best Demo
'erat.s will bo foremost the most deserving
of future promotion will take the lead nnd
bo ino-t nctivc. Rally for tho cause for
Pershing and l'iollet! Rally now!

Tho following is tlio Republican ticket of
Montour county, to wit: Prothonotary
Wilson M, Gearhart, Commissioners Geo.
W. Dcrr and Daniel Do Long, Auditors
.lames McMahon nnd K. M. Sheldon, An
earnest effort will no doubt bo mado to elect
this ticket nnd unless tho Democrats attend
sharply to their business it may bo success
ful, in part at least. The Democratic ticket
is also a strong one, which with'proper effort,
tho inculcation of harmony and sensible
good will, can bo elected by the usual major
ity. Small as tho county of Montour is, so
common has bolting become there that tho
Democrats aro split into spiteful little fac
tions, and unless they wisely put au end to
such nonscuso they will soon find it impossi
ble to elect any ticket they cau nominate.
The friends of the cause every where Iinpo to
sco them forget their personal differences
and struggle alono for tlio succesi of their
principles. This end can only bo accom
plished by a thorough acquiescence in nom
inations regularly mado and au efficient and
unanimous support of them. Union is a
bulwark irresistible in majorities and always
potential too in minorities. It will bo well
for tho Democracy of Montour not to disre
gard either end of tho truthful saying just
