To thn licailers of llio " Columbian. "
Tn resuming tlio Kdilorlnl clinir uf the
Coi.I'Miiiax, vacated by 1110 over two years
ngo, I fully appreciates tlio responsibilities I
incur, nud tlio additional labor will ho
imposed upon me. Tlio best gunranteo of

It will be true, to tlio traditions of tlio party,

good men who founded our Government.
Whilst truo to tlio organization, it will not
shield a dishonest Democrat, nor defame a
meritorious opponent.
Gcorgo E. Klwcll is associated with me as
Editor and Proprietor of tlio newspaper. As
most of its readers know ho is a gentleman
of culturo, high social standiug, nnd posses
sing unusual ability and energy.
The recent Democratic successes in this
and other states indicate that with proper
effort wo can securo tlio election of our
candidates for Governor and Slato Treasurer
in November, and thus pavo tlio way to
victory in tlio Presidential contest of next
year. A well sustained county newspaper is
tho strongest agent in securing triumph, and
wo therefore appeal to the party for active
C. 15. I! hock way.
"Willi much dillidcnco I come before tho
public as associate Editor and Proprietor of
tho Coi.u.mman, for I am fully aware of tho
task that is before mo in assisting to mako
this paper what it should be, a first class
family journal. Our aim is to benefit the
Democratic party, and for this object we
shall give our time and attention and what
ever ability we may posses'; but without the
co-operation of our friends throughout the
county wo cannot hope 'to succeed, liy
them must bo solved tho question as to
whether tho Cour.MJiu' shall remain an
cflicent newspaper, worthy of the staunch
Democracy of Columbia ; from them must
come that hearty support which alone can
enable U3 to carry on tho cntcrprize which
we have undertaken. Tho former policy of
tho paper, under tho ablo management of
Capt. Urockway, has been indicated as its
futuro course, and I can only say that I shall
use every effort in my power to assist him in
adoptirg and carrying out that policy which
in the past proved itbelf tho proper and suc
cessful one.
Our legal business will not be neglected
by reason of our taking chargo of the Coi.

both when necessary will constantly look

Mr. Dicffenbach, as explained by him last
week, was induced to relinquish his pot as
editor of tlio CohuuuiAN, by reason of the
recent death of his wife making it necessary
to place his young children under tho care
of friends in Clinton county, whence their
mother came.
We know that it is with regret that ho
leaves the post which he had expected to
occupy for years, and tho peoplo among
whom ho had intended to pass tho remainder
of his days.
It will bo a matter of regret to his many
friends in this county, and to tiic profession
generally, that his pen, for the present at
least, cannot be wielded for tho cause in
which he has spent his life, and especially
at a timo when cditoral ability is in such
great demand.
Our best wishes go with him, and our
hope is that ho may livo long to aid our
cause by ins judicious advice, and that soon
he may sec the enemies lie has so long fought,
vanquished by an unbroken Democratic
front which ho has so much helped to
Stereotyped Statements.
In looking over our Uepublican exchanges
wo notice that tho charges against our can
didates, our platform, and our party, appear
siuitlTtaueously, and in tlio samo language,
with tlio samo italics and exclamation points.
Of course these leaders aro manufactured at
Republican head-quarters, and forwarded to
editors of tho Radical persuasion. J hey
are published as original, and without ex
amination. Tho result is that the RepublP
can papers aro edited by unknown and irrc
sponsible parties. Assertions are mado that
are proven to bo untrue,buttho mischief has
been done; tho calumnies havo spread, and
Jio word of refutation is ever heard
The charges against our candidates have
been shown to ho utterly false. Their legis
lativo records havo been misrepresented, and
neither editors nor speakers have tlio man
llness to tell tho truth. A man who will lie
for ft political purpose, will for any other
and is not entitled to tho confidence or re-
spect of honest men.

attorney for tho District of Columbia, who

No Democrat will have reason to be asham

tho money of tho State; no connection with
treasury robbers: no tacrifico of the public
eood for privato interest. It is a clean re-
cord throughout and will need no defense,
Judgo Pershing has ever been tho con
sistent nnd straightforward friend of labor
ing men, While In tho legislature ho voted
for a bill which prohibited tho practico or
paying wnges willi store- orders. The bill
was inliodiircd by Hon. licrmml Relly, a
Democratic Senator from Hchuylklll county
wid pasted llto legislature, but was vetoed
by the Republican Governor, thus failing to
It coino a law.
Now niul Then.
When our nominee for Governor was a
candidate for Judgo In Schuylkill county,
his war record, his votes in the Legislature,
nnd his purity of character commended him
to the ltepublicans nnd Labor Association
in that county. T lio Miners Journal then as

The ltepublicans affect to believe thattho

leaving the restoration of legal-tenders to

A Contrast : Tho commissioners of
Schuylkill county two democrats and ono
republican were recently convicted of wil
ful misappropriation of tlio public funds. A
motion for a new trial was at once made, but
after being fully and ably argued, was re
fused, and Judgo Pershing sentenced each
of them, Patrick Conroy, Moses Hinoand
Valentino Rcnner, to two years imprison
ment, $1,000 fine and to pay back the
county's money which they had wasted.
They were, too, at once removed from ollice,
and their places filled by appointments by
tho court. Tnis was done in an overwhelm
ing democratic county, by a democratic
judge, and prosecuted throughout by demo
cratic officials.
Contrast this case with another wo all re
member, when thrco years ago a republican
governor, within a few days of the election,
opened the door of tho penitentiary and
freed two convicts whoso false, oaths ns a
consideration for their freedom, placarded
broadcast over the country, might gain votes
for tho then republican candidate for gover
nor, John F. Hartranft, now again before
the peoplo for tho samo ollice, who had rest
ed for a year under a chargo preferred by
tho oaths of these samo convicts. How do
you like the picture? Where, too, aro the
thousands of republican defaulters and cor-
ruptionists throughout tho land. Look
around, and you will find them in tlio front
ranks, nouo of them molested for their
crimes. Allentown Democrat.

According to tho act of Congress passed
nt Its last session, specie payments aro to bo
resumed in this country In 1871). Tills legis
lation suits tho National Ranks nnd govern
ment bondholders Tlio lntter class it will
ho boino in mind pay no taxes of any kind,
while tho National llauks havo large grants
from tho government to sustain their mono
poly, which is intended to mako tho rieh
richer, and tho poor poorer. I o iilustrato
how the National Hanking law works:
Suppose, A. 11. and C. havo ono hundred
thousand dollars and wlsti to go into tho
hanking business. Tlicy tako tlio ono hun-
Ircd thousand dollars and buy government
bonds with lt,whlch bonds they deposit with
tho government, and receive in return
ninety thorrSaiid dollars in national bank
notes, nnd then receive their charter and
open tlio bank. How much money can theso
three capitalists mako out of their money ?
Tlio answer is as follows :
For tho ono hundred thousand dollars
of the bonds which the government
holds, tho government pays A. It,
nnd C, six per cent, interest, or $iJ,000
Tlio national bank notes, amounting
to ninety thousand tlollars,for which
tlio bank pays tho government no
interest, nro loaned out to borrow
ers for ut least six per cent, interest,
nnd in many instances eight and ten
per cent are charged, but nt six per
cent, this sum of money would
yield in one year, 5,100
Total, 811,100
Thus under the National Hanking law.ono
hundred thousand dollars invested without
any banking at all, will mako almost twelve
percent on tho money, or 11, -100 interest on
$100,000 capital, and yet this large return,
in tlio eyes of the bondholders nnd national
bank', is not largo enough, but specie pay
ments nre to bo enforced four years distant,
which means that the property of tho work
ing peoplo now out of work will pass out of
their hands and into tlio possession of tlio
men of capital, who will buy it at a sheriff's
sale at n mero song. Caii thero bo any other
conclusion unless they obtain work? Tho
working people and their families must live,
md to obtain food and clothing they will be
compelled to raiso nioncyjthcy will bo obliged
to go to the capitalists, who will securo
themselves by taking mortgages or judg
ments on their property. These liens being
unpaid, measures at law will bo taken by the
leaders to get their money and thus tho pro
perties of thousands of industrious and
thrifty families will bo sacrificd under the
Sheriffs hammer, to pay tho persons who
loaned them the money. This terrible
calamity can be averted by a repeal of the
law, fixing a day for a return to specie pay
ments, abolishing tlio odious national bank
ing system, issuing more greenbacks and
taxing government bonds. Heading Gazelle.
Tom. Clialfant anil tlio Hiding Act.
To the Kdltors of tho cou'ihiian :
As Tom. Clialfant pours out a considera
ble quantity of spleen upon your humble
servant in tho last issue of his paper, I beg
your indulgence for a small spaco in reply.
Through tho paper I had asked him to ex
plain why he failed to vote when tho "Hid
ing act"pa.sed,which enables TroasiirrrMack
cy to amass millions of tlio people's money in
the Treasury and pocket tho interest, using
it to corrupt elections and defy tho peoplo's
ballots, besides enriching himself, Ac. This
was a fair question which any constituent
had a right to ask without ollence,atid which
any honorable representative would have
felt bound and been glad to explain. In
stead of giving explanation ho scolds like a
drab, saying I obtained my information from
New York papers two years after tlio occur
rence, Ate. Tlio fact is, I havo not read a
New York paper or looked into ono in two
years, or in ten years, and I did not refer to
his culpable conduct bctore becauso ho was
not worth a reference until candidacy for re
election gave him soma momentary imp or
tance. That he was a tool of the. Treasury
ring during his Senatorial career his acts
demonstrate, and that ho was nominated by
their agent is equally well known.
II is attack upon mo is based upon tho
assertion that I charged too much for adver
tising tlio new Constitution. I will only
say that I charged strictly in accordance
with my published terms and at precisely
tho same rato that I charged Uloomsburg
merchants nnd mechanics for tho samo kind
of advertising. Tho job being a largo ono it
mado a large bill,perliaps more than I would
havo asked under different circumstances,
but tlio terms of tlio blank allidavit furnish
ed by tlio Secretary of tlio Commonwealth
required the chargo to bo mado at a regular
rato. When I forwarded my bill I at tho
same timo informed tho Secretary that I was
willing to take whatever amount was paid to
other reputablo papers of equal circulation.
And that is all there is of that mare's
Rut there is much difference in tlio action
of Tom. nnd myself in referenco to this
matter. Ho obtained nearly as much ns I
did for tlio advertising in question, though
liis paper had only about one-third the cir
culation that initio had, nnd ho therefore
dono only one- third ns much ivork! Which,
then, is guilty of charging exorbitantly?
Another difference ; my bill was paid only
after legal approval by tho proper officers,
(Secretary of tho Commonwealth, Auditor
General and State Treasurer,) while his was
paid by Mackey, ns I am informed, before
there was any law authorising tlio payment!
Tom. sneers at mo for being "old." Well,
while age is certainly not discreditable, it is
equally truo that I am considerably In
junior. 11. L. u.

this is not tlio subject of inuiiirv now. but
such is undeniably the fact.
1 lie country has now, and has unit lor too
last twelve years, n paper currency, irredeem
able in gold nnd silver. This has been ad
opted as tho basts of values. Tho system
was not tho offspring of Democratic legisla
tion. It is claimed, by thosowho introduced
it, as ono ot those necessities caused by tho
Rebellion. Right or wrong, the country ac
cepted it, and since tlio close of the war, to
the present moment, nil our business trans
actions have been regulated by it.
Upon tlio legal-tender basis tho tanner
lias purchased his laud, the manufacturer
ml in motion Ins machinery, nnd the work
nir man coucht the lot upon which lie erect
ed bis home. To change this dasis of values
suddenly, by tho substitution of gold and sil
ver, would depreciate the price id land ami
caiio alarm nnd distress in all tlio avenues
of trade. Tlio change will bo u work of time
and cannot bo effected until tlio country is
in a better condition to receive it. And
however much the politicians of the country
may interfere, the solid sense mid good judg
ment ol tlio masses win, by tlio loroe and
power of the ballot, prevent hasty and in
digested legislation on tlio question of specie
However much wo may complain of the
want of wisdom that prompted the intro
duction of tnc present system, there can bo
no doubt of the folly ol attempting now to
destroy it. Whatever evils belong to it have
already been realized; tho business of a
whole decado and more has been based upon
it, and only those who desire to speculato
upon a breaking up of all values, whether
of labor or property, aro now advocating a
contraction of tho currency, and it may not
bo inappropriate to add here that in nothing
has the commence ot tlio peoplo l it their
government been to strikingly illustrated as
in tho universal acceptance and use of tlio
money issued by H notwithstanding tho bad
management ol the administration.
Wo claim that tlio Democrat!)! paity has
always been anil is now m lavor ol a sound
and s'tablo currency, and wo have uniformly
opposed tho mercenary nidations that have
so often disturbed and destroyed tlio business
of tlio cuntry. Composed as tlio Democratic
party is, in a largo part, of the labor of tho
nation, it is essential to its best interests that
all needless fluctuations of tlio currency
should be avoided, and it is entirely safe to
sav that with the government in their hands
lies tlio only hope of reaching tlio specie
standard as the basis ol our currency. It is
no part ot its mission or its destiny to aban
don! this idea. It will not. Hut that same
party must bo governed by reason as to tlio
time, the mode aim manner in which tho
point is to lie reached. It cannot afford oven
if it had the power, to march on to tho ob
ject point over a desolate country and amidst
the ruin ot its industries, it does not pro
pose to commit any sucli folly ; and, there
fore, when in council at Erie, tho party de
termined to put ltseil in a conservative posi
tion and act witli deliberation and discretion
when they passed a resolve "demanding
that tho volume of money bo mado and kept
equal to the wants of trade, leaving the res
toration of legal tenders to par in gold to bo
brought about by promoting the industries
of the people and not destroying them"
they but evinced sound judgment, and mado
no sacrifice ol principle
Tlio effect of this is to make one common
currency, save where Congress has made spec
ial provisions to tlio contrary, in the nation
id loan. Tli cio is no inll.itiou in this pait
of tlio Erie platform ; is is but supplying tho
peoplo with tin1 amount ot currency with
drawn by tlio National Legislature from cir
The peoplo of this Stale cannot bo forced
into submission to a strictly commercial ruie
in their business affairs. Commerce clam
ors for free trade. Tho people engaged in
commerce carry on a Ir.ilhc with all nations.
They obtain and receive large profits. They
can well afford to nay differences in exchange.
Our mines, manufactories and agriculture
want and can only prosper under protective
revenue laws, Pennsylvania has always been
a protective Slato and is so now. and she can
not dispense witli this feature but with serious
Tho commercial interests of Pennsylvania
in common with tlio interests of tlio Western
States, aro identical in this particular, and
their common de-iiny lies in t no samo chan
nel. With tlio exception of Philadelphia,
and which may bo classed more as n iiiaim-
factniiug city," with a limited commercial
marine, they havo no ships upon tlio sea.
Their tiado "and barter is at homo. Their
profits are comparatively .small, and they are
not in condition to meet sudden convulsions
in tlio contraction of currency. 1 ho est
cm States havo realized this stato of affairs,
and tbev havo boldly assumed a position in
which the Democratic party of this Stato lias
sustained them.
Tlio platform ndotned nt Erio takes tho
position that hankers and brokers may not
havo the control ol the currency, that mo
industries of the Slate anil the great question
of labor have, as thev should have, n voice
in tho currency iiuo-tinn, and wo fearlessly
maintain that this is correct. Tlio men who
rcprecnt these interests aro entitled to a
voico in tlio common council of tho State.
To their elforls wo owe its prosperity, and
' their advice is not to bo discarded.
Tho coal and iron tradu to-day in lids
Stato is prostrate : it is paralyzed. Tens of
thousands of men who aro employd in these
Industries will bo discharged it the doctrine
of immediate resumption is suce-slul j nor
will they bo in a much poller condition if
tho currency as contracted by government.
with n view of fixing n day for resumption, is
I'cllow-citizciis of Pennsylvania, these nro
important issues, and they claim your serious
consideration in tho approaching canvass.
The pressure is upon us. If wo cannot
avoid its evil consequences absolutely, wo
must nmignu) mom as as is mum pum-i.
It has not been tho work of tho Democratic
nartv. "Thou canst not s-iv wo did it."
Therefore in declaring, at Erie, that wo
would not permit a contraction or tho cur
reney, we deserted no Democratic laud mark
Our policy, as a nartv. has ever been to pro
tect and L'linrd tho Industries of tlio country.
Wo demand that the legal-tender issues bo
made receivable for all dues to tlio govern
menta policy that will speedily bring them
to par with gold and inicrchiiiigeanio mere
Wo denounced tho system of National
Hanking. Wo did so for tho reason that tho
National Government pays tho banks, acting
merely as her fi-cal agents, over twenty mil
lions a year lu coin. As tho government is
responsible for tlio redemption of tlio notes
they issuo to thoso corporations, why pay
them a premium for circulation? Why not
let tlio government issuo legal lenders lu
their place, and appropriate tho twenty mil
lions of coin annually paid as Interest upon
banking bonds, towmd tho relief of tho peo
plo In taxation. And wo aro sure the pro
ducers of tho country will bo startled to ho
told, for they nro in realtly tlio taxpayers of
the nation, that Ibis bank note circulation
has in ten years, sluco tho eloso of tho war
cost them over ono hundred mid fifty million
dollars, which has been paid in gold raised
by taxation, and wlilclj has been constantly
sold by tlio banks for purpose of speculation
affecting by its artificial nnd gambling quo
tntions tho prices, if not tlio values, of jjveiy
tiling continued in tlio country.
Wo condemned, too, tlio policy of tlio na
tional government In the iucrenso of officers
and tho profligate system of salaries.
Wo rjsolvwrthat the unduo multiplication
of the public ollleers and tlio inordlnato in
crease of salaries mid emolu iieiils of offices
are niiMii tho ria ly evils which liadlcul
ni'o has luive l lip-m Hie country ; nnd lu
I'm .n it ail ivonnnilcal administration nf tlio
l'V I nd mid Htab' gov iMii.iiciits, so that tlio
ponplu may be as speedily a possible relieved
from tho burthen of taxation; with which
they nro now seriously oppressed, wo call
upon our Federal nod State representatives
to strive by all proper means to reduce them
both to their very lowest practicable number
mid amount,
i'lii abuse of Federal power cannot bo
denied. It Is known to the country and tho
people are untrue to ihemscHcs ll they do
not correct tlio evil.
And not more glaring nnd offrusivo is tho
conduct of souio of our local ofllcials. It Is
alleged that the largo nuns of money set
apart in the ,lato Treasury, ns n sinking
Hind lor tlio payment ol tho public debt,
have not b.'ou impropriated its the laws re
quire, and Hint no interest on theso millions
lilts been accounted for to llioState. If tills
be true it is n crime of great enormity. Tlio
res .life of the Coll vent Ion charges openly:

And now as to the candidates we havo
plac ed upon this platform and pledged to
n icloiiii nf the aliu-es set linlli.
Judge Pershing, the nominee for Governor
lias pioved liimsell to be, in his legislative
capacity, a statesman ; ho is an upright and
feailis- Judgo a moral and conscientious
man. lie is i-iiiiin-ully fit for the high place
he is in: in nomination to till, and the tax
ridden people of this Stale cannot aliiiid his
flic candidate wo present to you for Slato
Treaaurer, in tho person of Colonel Piollett
is woithy ol your suiiport. lie is a plain
intelligent larmer. lie has no purpose to
accomplish inconsistent with the honor and
credit ol tho state, ins rigid honesty is
proverbial with tho people nf Northern Penn
sylvania, and if elected, the public monies'
principal mid interest, nro safe in bis hand.
Ho would scorn to appropriate illegally for
private gain a solitary farthing of tho people's
taxes. Heaven Knows, wrung as they aro
from the hard blows and preserving industry
of our people, they ought to bo honestly ap
propriated. With candidates who are beyond all ques
tion properly selected; Humiliated outside of
all political lings and com biualions; selected
because of tiieir peculiar fitness, they should
bo triumphantly elected. Our political op
ponents concede that they are upright and
Honest men, and we Know them to bo sucli.
Let us elect them.
,f,Tlio time lias coino for change in tho
management nf the National and Stato affairs.
And in that change is there any conceivable
possibility that nllairs can bo placed there
by in a more deplorable condition than thoy
aro now? Our eicdit, our industries, and our
moral reputation as n people are demoralized.
It is to bo hoped that profligacy bad manage
ment and cmbczzlcuinl and ollicinl peculations
have reached a point beyond which they may
not further advance Tho tax-paying and
tax-ridden peoplo of this State have it in
their power at tlio approaching election to
relieve themselves fiom the sad condition in
which thoy now are. Will they do it?
Tho campaign wo are entering upon must
be aggressive. We havo no apologies to
iiiaKo and no bribes to oiler. Keasou must
bo our argiiiuont, and tho peoplo of this
Commonwealth, who are deeply interested
in a pure ami economical administration ol
their ulluirs, must como to tho rcscuo.
Wo charge upon our opponents that they
havo wasted tho puplic treasure in tho be
stowal of it npon their politcul friends and
puitisuiis; that through a want of capacity in
conducting the public nllairs the trade and
liusiness of the country mo pro-tratcd ; the
iron mills nro out of blast, the coal trade de
pressed, the wages of labor reduced, and the
productsoffarin areata ruinous price. Gloom
and depression in rur industries sla c us in
the face, and the time lias come lorn change
of policy as well as a cbango of rulers. Let
those who'liold the political power of the lam
answer these charges at the great tribunal of
the people, l hey have no right to nsic a
further continuance in power if they are in
the wrong, and they cannot deny but that
they are responsible- lor that want ot pros
perity which tho people of this Stato are en
titled to and of right ought to have.

Chairman Democratic State Committee,
I'rom the Farmer's Friend.
RncooNi iiov or, Faumiius. Tlio polit
ical convention which Assembled nt Erie on
tholSth of September last, had the sagacity,
at tlio latest moment, lo recognize tlio claims
of tho fanner, by placing in nomination for
the ollice of StatoTreasiirer, a representative
of tho class in the person of our worthy Stale
Lecturer, Col. V. E. Piollet.
While it is not our pioviiice, as a general
rule, to discuss the proceedings of political
convention, their platforms or nominations,
yel in this e.iso wo may pe permitted to say
a few words.
That the nomination for Stale Treasurer
was entirely un-ouglit by Ilrothcr Piollet we
know from u conversation had with hint four
days previous to tlio meeting of tho coiivcu
lion ; and whether lie will accept tho honor
tendered him wo have not yet learned; but
of tills wo feel assured, if lie accepts the
nomination and is elected by the people they
will havo a relormer lor 1 ronuicr who, in
the administration of tho nllairs of his de
partinent, will bo influenced by neither fear
nor favor, and will know neither friend nor
foo. We this prediction upon a per
sonal knowledge of the characteristics of the
Wo havo not tho riuhtnr inclination load-
viso members of out order to support this
nomination. Each ono will act for himself.
Col. Piollet has been nominated by n Demo
eratic Convention as a Democrat. That lie
is a representative fanner and a leading man
in our order, may not assist him in the
campaign, hut it should not injure him.
Ilavingsaid thlsniuch, wudhmlsstho mat
terlVom further consideration in our editorial
columns. Our order Is not political, and its
organ will not advocate the claims of any
party nominee for oliico.
