by tlio Democracy of the county ns their

tho Legislature, has repeatedly been other

fore for nearly a decade of years conducted
ho Columbian, as I believe, to the satisfac

Klivcll is a son of the respected Judgo of
your Courts, is a young man of honorable
characteristics and promising ability, and a
member of tho bar who has given more than
common evidences of success in his high
profession. I therefore have tho satisfaction
of passing the paper not only into entirely
competent hands but into sucli as you have
fully endorsed, and havo the ability to mako
it all that you desire it to be.
In this connection, however, let mo re
mind you respectfully of a fact to which I
can freely attest after a long experience in
tho business, to wit: that the Idler a paper
is supported the belter will any publisltcr or
editor male it. Therefore if you want a
superior paper, tlio way to reach the end is
to give it liberal support. In that regard I
have nothing to complain of and have no
reason to apprehend that you will not ex

In looking back over my career hero I see

It would require a sheet as largo as an or
dinary bed quilt to correct all tho erroneous
statements of the Republican papers in re
gard to Judgo Pershing's votes in the Legis
lature. ISut we may hero state that it is not
truo that ho voted against the soldiers being
permitted to voto in the field, and it is not
truo that lie voted against tho bill to prevent
tho payment of laborers in storo orders. It
la not truo that ho voted for tho "calamity
net," restricting damages for railroad acci
dents to $3,000 for injury and $5,000 for
death, and it is not true that ho voted for
the repeal of the tonnago tax. Ho is also
charged with voting for and against sundry
proposed enactments when ho was not a
member of tho Legislature at all. It would
tako a man not less than ten years of steady
voting to voto for or against all tho measures
that aro now attempted to bo saddled upon
It isto bo noted that all tho timo during
which Judgo l'ersliing was a member the
Republicans had the Governor and a major

It is n well understood nxlom with minor
ity parties that volunteer candidates belong
ing to tlio majority party always Inflict great
mid irreparable Injury upon that majority,
mid thercforo minority parties always en
cntirngo them, unless somo spccinl reasons
reipilro n contrary course. Volunteers may
therefore bo regarded, and should bo consid
ered, the worst enemy any party can have,
capable of and Inlllctlng more injury than
any other enemy. Tor that reason tho pres
ent editor of tho Cohimman (now writing)
lias over refused to havo npy business con
nection with volunteers. Ho would print
neither announcement", cards, advertise
ments, tickets or handbills for them, or linvo
any thing to do witli them, except to opposo
tlicm. 1 They aro insidious enemies, who stab
their party to tlio heart, wlillo professing
and receiving' friendship. They are men
who to promoto selfish Interest and ambi
tion aro at least willing, if they do not seek
(which latter is generally tho cao though
hypocritically disguised) to defeat and des
troy their party, to betray tiio principles
they, profess, and to sacrillco every patriotic
and honorable emotion to gratify their own
lust for ofiice, and their object is usually cor
rupt gain. So much for "volunteers" in
general. During our editorial career in Co
lumbia county wo havo had to confront
them in every campaign, and though mndo
to suffer pecuniarily by their enmity wo havo
not profiled by tho crushing defeat that over
This fall thcro will be nless plentiful crop
than usual, partly becauso of Into continued
defeat, but mainly because tho Itepublican
convention garvo them a decided cold shoul
der, for the reason that they endangered He
publican success in electing a county Com
missioner. Tho Itcpublicana havo been pre
vented from bargaining with constitutional
bolters in tlio Democratic party to run ono
of their number as a volunteer for Treasurer
against Dr. McUeynolds, firstly becauso
they would in all probability defeat their
own nominee for Commissioner, and second
ly becauso Dr. Mclteynolds' personal popu
larity is sucli that ho would easily bo elected
at any rate.
The volunteer field is thorcforo left to bo
occupied only by John H. Yoho for Associ
ate Judge and John Knt for Commissioner.
As to Yoho wo have little to say. We aro
only surprised that ho did not wait to run
for President Judge ho is as lit for that as
for Associate, and ho would bo just about as
likely to reach it. We think it is palpablo
that Providcnco never intended him for .1
Judgo of quarter sessions, no liss for a court
of cmnmoii pleas and it would not bo well
to defy that authority for shelter under the
wing of John It. Yohe.
To tho writer of this (tho retiring editor)
the candidacy of John Knt is peculiarly
painful. With his closest relatives wo have
for many years sustained tlio most intimate
relations of friendship and confidence. For
Peter Knt wo have felt a respect and confi
dence, during a long acquaintance, tlmt bor
dered closely upon real affection, and that
friendship was freely and confidently extend
ed to his sons. To bo compelled, therefore,
to comment unfavorably upon tlio unjustifi
able and ungrateful action of a brother aud
uncle is any thing but pleasant, but a sense
of public duty rcquiaes it.
Last year John Knt was a candidato for
nomination, lly the alteration of n return
of ono of tho Conynghams and tho rejection
of that of lierwick, a tie vote was produced,
and this was followed by an unauthorised,
unusual and unwarranted plan of arriving
at a result which could only be regarded as
a trick. Yet Mr. Knt was eventually de
clared tho nominee, though not upon a bal
lot. Strained and irregular as this was, his
opponent, Mr. John D. Quick, one of tho
bcst'nieu in the county, declined to bo fur
ther regarded as a candidate and declared
his purpose to snpport Mr. Knt, which was
honorably carried out. Other persons who
entertained tlio idea of not submitting to the
irregular nomination, were deterred from en
tering tho field because of the well known
determination of Mr. Quick's friends not to
"bolt," and the additional fact, well known,
that they wonld receive no quarter from tho
Columman, notwithstanding Mr. Knt's
family relationship to a hostile and unscru
pulous interest set up and sustained by the
habitual bolters in opposition to it.
When John Ent announced himself as a
candidate for re-election this year it was un
der tho distinct pledge of abiding by tlio ac
tion of the Democratic county convention
is established by the fact that his name was
announced in the Columbian. Overwhelm
ingly defeated, without even a show of suc
cess, ho now violates his pledge, refuses to
do by others as others did to him, and at
tempts to destroy tho harmony of his party
and do all the injury he is capable of to
Judgo Pershing and tho wltolo State and
county ticket, by announcing himself as a
volunteer candidate! Wo will not charac
terize this conduct-in the fitting tcms it de
serves. Tlio fucU exhibit him in a sufficient
ly objectionable and repulsive light. Thcro
ho stands! Make of him what you please.
Wo havo only our usual appeal to make,
and that is in behalf of the Democratic cause.
Every body knows that union and harmony
are essential to success and tho exhibition of
tlm full strength of the party. Whoever dis
turbs that is against tho party an enemy to
tlio party. Ilally for tlio great cause Ually
for Pershing Itally for your own nomi
nees! I The Democracy of Columbia coun
ty aro btrong enough to compel harmony in
their ranks. Let tlicm exerciso their newer
and cure the evil that nlUlcts them.
CoiisiHiuenccs of Democratic Defeat,
Political parties are overly sensitive to the
elements of success. They will not long ad
here to measures or professions that con
sitlntly defeat them, however tenacious they
may bo of deeper principles, as has been il
lustrated in tlio latter respect by the Democ
racy over and over again but mora especial
ly sinco 1800. Thercforo if tho Democrats
are defeated in Ohio and Pennsylvania at
the ensuing elections, every body will yield
to tlio policy of severe and rapid contraction
of tho currency, as the means by which spe
cie payments iiro to be reached, in preference
to tho policy proclaimed in the Democratic
platforms of thoso States. Democratic de
feat In thoso States will bo sure to compel
tlio party to yield to tho policy of contrac
tion. Any man who has judgment will
readily perceive this for himself. If voters
desire a greater scarcity of money they can
reach that end by voting for tlio Itcpubli
cana. If they debiro better times they must
vote witli tho Democracy to sustain tho pol
icy of nov contracting tho current further

The Democratic Financial Hank.
Wo did not think tlio Krio covention had
nny business with Federal finances, and wo
havo not changed that opinion. Having an
utter contempt, too, for tho ephemeral plat
form erections of politicians, except when
they aro confined to tho slmplo rc-nfilrnin-tlon
of defined principle, or dcclaro opposi
tion to acts of extravagance, corruption and
usurpation, or when new parties appear, wo
seldom glvo them muro attention than wo
bestow u noil other transient sayings. Hut
this ono put fortli at Krio lias been so much
misrepresented, and possibly misunderstood,
that somo comment seems to bo necessary.
It is not an "inflation" platform, as tlio
Itepublican press generally represent, under
tlio lead of rockless papers of their party at
Philadelphia, Harrisburg and Pittsburgh.
In that regard it is about as dcflnlto ns Gen.
Jackson's famous declaration that ho favored
a judicious tariff. Hut it does opposo en
forced resumption of spcclo payment in a
vny or at a timo that will destroy tho pros
perity of tlio producing interests, tlio work
ing men of tlio country, and glvo a harvest
of gold to brokers, bankers and money lend
ers at tho expense of honest industry. In
other words, tho Democratic party Is oppos
ed to a resumption that will literally con
fiscate tho property of tho great mass of tlio
people and place it in tho hands of tho money
lenders, a great portion of whom aro Kuro
pcans. Hccauso of this feature of tlio plat
form, tho paid and subsidized organs of the
brokers in New York, like tho World and
Tribune, as well as tho whole kennel of small
fry Itepublican sheets that follow in their
wake, chargo the Democracy with abandon
ing tlio llAltn money doctrines of tho foun
ders and ablest supporters of the party. Now
let ns sec about that.
When suspension lias occurred and paper
money has ceased to command specie at the
pleasure of the holder, it is plain to every
body that it is only a question of expedi
ency as to when resumption shall take place.
It must occur at some time, or tlio paper
money will becomo worthless, and tlio only
question is when? Hy what means nnd
at what timo can it best bo brought about,
in a way to do tho least injury and ellect the
greatest good 1 A question of expediency, a
temporary measure, can not bo distorted into
a principle, though principles may bo effect
ed by it. The leading principle that gov
erns tho Democratic party in tho case, and
always will govern it, is contained in the
fact that that party was founded aud i.s
maintained to promote the greatest good of
tho greatest number. Hcnco it always de
fends labor against unjust encroachments and
oppression of capital, upon tlio principle of
protecting the many weak against the pow
erful few. That is just what it did when
it (at all times) demanded that bank
notes while forced upon the public as
a circulating medium should be redeemable
in specio at tlio will of the holder. Hence,
also, (and mail: for precisely tlio samo rea
son and upon tho samo priuciplo of action)
it now demands that specio payments shall
be reached in n way lo do no injury to the
people not by forced enactments of Con
gress, but by cutting down the expenses of
government, by abolishing wholo armies and
swarms of useless ofiico holders and greatly
reducing tho salaries of those that remain,
by ceasing to make extravagant appropria
tions of public money and by frugally hus
banding all tho resources of tlio nation, and,
in short, by confining the government down
to only actually necessary expenditure.
This will make greenbacks equal to gold and
there will then be no more trouble about
specio payment, and peoplo can then cx
chango greenbacks for gold and gold for
greenbacks at pleasure. Of course, as de
clared at Krie, National bank notes must in
thu meantime bo wiped out, which alone
will save the people not less than thirty mil
lions a year, and tho circulating medium be
confined to gold, silver and government notes
bearing no interest.
Wo repeat that tho Democracy aro in favor
of hard money, ns they over have been, and
tho only point at issue is how to niako
the immcuso load of eight hundred mil
lions of paper money entailed upon the
country equal to specie, ho that specie pay
ments may be resumed without doing great
injury to tho country.
Treasury notes, tlio same as our green
backs, only not in such small denominations,
were issued by the Democratic administra
tions of Madison and Van Huron, with tlte
approbation of thoso great apostles of De
mocracy, Jefferson and Jackson. All these
had to deal with tho question of resumption
of bpecie payments, and all insisted firmly
that it must be effected in a way to do no in
jury to tho business of the country and to the
great body of tlio people. .The mere interests
of bankers aud brokers were never allowed to
control by tho Democracy aud ought not to
bo permitted to do so now
It is been, therefore, that nil tho blabber
of tho Itepublican newspapers about the
Democrats abandoning their hard money
doctrines is sheer blubber, and that tho par
ty stands whero it nlways did, upon tlio
great fundamental priuciplo of Tin: our.AT-

himself despised by it, Ho joined the Lib

After that, finding no further occupation in

of American bonds with bis importance mid

but in great furtherance of the interests of
Kuropcan bondholders and money lenders.
In u speech recently made at Cincinnati tlio

his followers were not committed as to who

Tlio Senatorlol Conference.
Pursuant to appointment, tho conferees
from tho counties of Columbia, Lycoming,
and Sullivan, met at Wllllamsporl on tlio
22d Inst, but for somo unexplained reason
thoso from Montour failed to attend. Tlio
conferees present finally adjourned tho con
ference, without formal organization, to meet
nt thu Kxclmugo Hotel, lllooinshurg, on tho
1 1th of October. Tho Wllliamsport (la
telle A- Jlulletin gives tho following facetious
account of tho proceedings.
Something Is evidently tho matter with
tho Hon. Thomas Clinlfant, Senator from
this district and candidate for re-nnnilnatlon.
Tho candidates and conferees from three
counties have been In tills city for two days
waiting to hold a conference which could
not bo complcto without tlio presenco of
Chalf.int and his conferees. Hut they did
not come. Thoso present gathered at tho
City Hotel Wednesday morning and talked
tlio matter over, and then they went lo tlio
Hcrdic House aud talked It over, and finally
camo down town and talked it over somo
more. And then they adjourned till yester
day morning, tho Columbia and Sullivan
county representatives getting a llttlo Indig
nant in the meantime. Yesterday morning
nil parties excepting, of course, nny body
from Montour gathered down town nnd
had n llttlo conversation, nnd then they
marched up town and had n littlo moro con
versation, nnd a telegram was received from
Senator Clinlfant Unit neither lie nor his
conferees could meet hero this week. The
conference wns thereupon adjourned to meet
at llloomsburg on October 11th j then every
body marched down town again. And so it
is a question what is tlio matter with the
statesman of Montour. Did he havo a hopo
that the conferees hero would get into such
a fight that they could only extricate them
selves by nominating him, without any of
his aid? Or was ho afraid to faco the music
nnd carry out tho promises lie is believed to
havo made when iio was nominated at tlio
last conference? Thcro is n story Hint lie
promised assistance to both Columbia lind
Sullivan, and of course he cafluot carry out
two such promises.
It is not correct that Clinlfant mndo nny
promise to Columbia county thrco years ago.
Tlio Itepublicans, says tho Cincinnati En
quirer, say that a Dcnocratic gain of nearly
11,000 in Connecticut, of 32,000 in California
and 8,000 or 10,000 in Miano aro owing to
local causes. It is si curious local causo which
is felt nt the same timo in tho opposito ex
tremes of tlio Utiion,nud which has permeated
every State which lias voted.
Itepublican organs aro engaged in the work
of misrepresenting tlio Prohibitionists, with
a zeal that is worthy of h better cause It
shows that they begin to realize tho fact
that tho good and true men who havo ncled
with them against armed rebellion, to save
tlio nation, do not propose to stand by nnd
seo the whiskey ring destroy it, just to sa re a
party that is proving quite cnclusivcly
that it has cither outlived its usefulness or
got into tlio hands of bad men. Temperance

Tlio former exclaimed from his pulpit in
1804, "I thank God that Plymouth Church

HowConsistent! Wo notice tliatseveral
of our Itadical exchanges aro pitching into

Times, and calling him a renegade, because
lie has abandoned the Itadical party. This
mode of abuse is a littlo sarcastic under thfc

ifest their wratli in this manner fly tho names
of two renegades, Hartranft and Kawlc, at

during tlio war, thousands havo funned now
political relations. In tho South tho Repub
lican party Is now n powerful organization,
nnd consllutcs tlio majority in somo of tlio
States. Among Its membership aro found
those who wero conspicuous leaders in tlio
Confederate army, and who aro now in pos
session of lucratlvo offices conferred upon
them by tho National Kxccutlve. Now issues
nro now presented for the consideration of
tlio people. Tho question of tho currency is
attracting tho attention of tlio thoughtful
minds of nil parties. Its final settlement
rests with Congress and tlio President. Tlio
legal-tender issue lias becomo incorporated
into tlio business of tlio country, and its con
stitutionality has been nllirmcd by the Su
premo Court of tho United Stales. I nm
opposed In its truo senso to inflation, and
inflation is not demanded by tlio Krio plat
form. Tho platlorm stands opposed to any
further contract ion of tlio currency nt this
timo of financial distress, when our work
shops, mills and manufactories are closed
und thousands of men willing to work nro
out of employment. To expand tlio volume
of tlio currency when tlio people are incur
ring debts and rapidly contract it when tlio
timo for payment has como will prove ruin
ous to every business enterprise. The at
tempt to force tho country to a rcsiimntion
of specie payments, under the provisions of
uio act passed uy tlio last Congress, will only
intensify tlio distress which now everywhere
prevails. Wo must cease exporting gold to
pay interest on our Indebtedness abroad beforo
specie payments can safely bo resumed. I
favor such a volumo of currency ns tho leg
itimato demands of business and tho revival
of tlio industrlcs of tho country may require.
Kxpcrieneo will best determine this, nnd it is
to bo hoped that an adequate standard, or test
for regulating tlio amount of currency, may
bo established hy our representatives In Con
gress. I will only add that I adhero to tlio
doctriuo nlwayslieldby the Democratic party
that gold and silver constitute tho truo basis
for a bauk-noto circulation- This presents a
question dill'erent from that of a paper cur
rency that is of itself mndo by tlio sover
eign power a legal-tender, and therefore
I will regard it as my highest duty should
tho action at Krio bo ratified by tho people
to meet tho demand for reform in tlio Stato
government. Tho taxes paid into tho sink
ing fund have steadily decreased tho Stato
debt. It is well known, however, that for
years past largo amounts belonging to tlio
sinking fund have been diverted from it
and applied to other purposes than the pay
ment of the debt of tlio State. Tlio effect
of this is to leave a largo indebtedness, tlio
payment of which, with tho accruing interest
has lo be provided for by taxation, which, in
many cases, operates oppressively on tlio
mining and oilier industries of the State.
Tho faithful appropriation of tlio public
moneys to tlio purposes for which they wCro
paid into tho 'Ireasury by tlio people, would
liave lessened the amount of taxation now
required when business interests aro so gen
erally prostrate. Not only should the taxes
paid into the sinking fund bo promptly nnd
honestly applied to the payment of the Stato
debt, but tlio condition "of tho Treasury
should bo open to the inspection of the
people's representatives. Tho monthly bal
ances in tlio Treasury, frequently very large,
should bo used for tlio benefit of the "peoplo,
and pot converted into a sourco of private
gnin to tlio State Treasurer. To distributo
the funds of tlio Treasury over the Stato in
hanks on such terms ns will most ndvantngo
not the tax-payer, but tlio officer having
tlicm in charge, is to establish u system at
onco corrupt nnd dangerous. Reform by
holding all public officers to a strict account
ability, by dispensing witli supernumary
ollicers, and reducing expenses to tlieloivcst
practicable amount, thus relieving the people
as much as is possiblo from tho burden of
taxation, should bo regarded as objects of
chief importance on tho part of the Kxecu
tivo. Labor, thu foundation of our pros
perity, should bo amply rewarded, and to
this end sucli legislation as is just to tho la
borer as well as the employer should bo en
acted. Abiding hy the action of the convention in
its nominations and declaration of principles,
I accept the nomination tendered mo with a
duo sense of tho rcspontibilities involved in
an election to the Gubernatoral chair. Tlio
nomination has como to mo unsought. It
found mo busily engaged in the disebargo of
tlio judical duties intrusted to mo by tlio
people of tlio Twenty-first Judicial district.
Yielding to what appears to bo their unanim
ous expression of opinion, I do not proposo to
tender my resignation to tho Governor and
solicit votes from the stump. Tlio issues are
well understood, and I havo faitli in tlio in
telligence of tho peoplo to decido them.
Should they seo proper to call mo from my
present position to a btill higher one, I will
endeavor to servo them faithfully. To tlio
people of tho State I leave tlio decision of
tlio coolest believing that He who rules the
destinies of States will guide to that con
clusion which in tlio end will bo for the

tho discharge of this duty, permit mo to
tlinnk you. In accepting, ns I hereby do,
tlio honorable position of candidato for Stato
Treasurer, allow mo to say there is nothing
personal in this entire proceeding. My
nomination was the unsolicited nnd free-will
oll'ering of tho representatives of that portion
of tho people of Pennsylvania who aro anx
ious, nay determined, to arrest and finally
overthrow tho ruinous measures Unit havo
loaded our people with unnecessary taxation
and prostrated tho industrial pursuits that
iilibrded tho laboring class employment and
the menus of support for themselves nnd
thoso dependent upon them. Tho adminis
tration of tlio Stato aud tho National govern
ments has been and is in direct conflict with
tho truo interests of our laboring masses,. can
not bo upheld by tlio exercise of tho official
power or tlio forco of party; nor will an in
telligent nnd thoughtful peoplo (bucIi as
characterize our State) forego tho principle
of sound morality in tho conduct of public
affairs. Tlio mass of tho peoplo in Pennsyl
vania havo fur vcars persistently demanded
a truo oxhlblt o'f tho condition of their Stato
Treasury. My nomination is wholly duo to
a general belief that if intrusted with tho of
fice thcro would bo no concealment from tlio
public of its exact condition or current op
erations. Tho resolutions embody nnd set
forth tlio real purpose of tlio earnest and in
telligent gentlemen forming tlio convention,
composed of truo representatives in sympathy
witli tlio thousands whoso enforced idleness
is fast reducing them to penury and want,
whoso occupations and pursuits should bo
honored and not overthrown. Without fur
ther comment, I desiro to bo understood as
giving mv unqualified and hearty concur
rence to nil theso resolutions, nnd I firmly
bellove, It adopted by the American people
ns a governmental measure, wo will attain
Immediate relief In all branches of our pros
trate Industries, and enter upon a new career
of prosperity. 1 am, most respcctluffy, your
