mmes of the cntidlilatM selreted by the pen

l-Vf Pislrict Attorney tlio honor fell to
Hubert li. Little, Eq., of this place. His
moral character nnl Irgal training fit him
fur. the place, ami give assurance to the ieo
plo that tlio duties pertaining to tlio office
wll he faithfully performed.
Isnlali Wager, of Locust township, was se
lected as n candidate Inr Coroner. He was
nominated to that ollice one year ago, hut It
was.aflcrwards dUcrivered that thero was no

popular throughout the County. If anybody

For County Surveyor tho Convention se
lected Samuel Key hard, of Centre. No bet
tfr.ioininilon could have been made, as
Jlr. Neyhard is an experienced Surveyor
nnd aithnrough gentleman.
It" s'ccmii f6 us that them is one ilofect in
the law rejrulatinj our common school system,
audit is this it leaves to tlio dkcrction of
tho iiirccfoM of each school district the adop
tion of 'tlid text-books that shall be used in
its .schools. 'Hiis oifeht to"bo changed. Un
der' the present pystcm there nro scarcely two
mljotaiit;; districts where tho Famo books aro
in us.-, and consequently when tho resident
of hua township removes to another, ho is
obliged to purchaso an entire now set of pcliool
liooka fur liis children.! It-is asking too much
to require that tho same books shall bo adopt
ed throughout tho State, but it can easily be
dona in counties. A convention composed of
delegates chosen from tho directors of each
school district oiuld appoint a cominitteo to
u'porta series of books for tho county nfter
rueful examination, and the report could Is!
presented at a subsequent eonvent.on for adop
tion or lnodiGcation. Or tho Mibjoct could
bo .brought before tho triennial convention of
fcbool directors when they niet to elect a
county superintendent. If tho samo books
could bo adopted by every district it would bo
a saving in many ways. JIucli time is lost
by pupils when they aro obliged to go back
to tho beginning of their arithmetic or geog
raphy or grammar, becausoit is different from
the one they nearly tinished In an adjoining
township tho year before ; and yet this is con
stantly doue. As tha Normal schools aro a
branch of the common school system, there
onght to bo uniformity thero also. Tho pub
lic, schools could then bo made what they aro
intended to be, preparatory departments of
tho Normal school, and those who desiro
to take a thorough course, would not bo oblig
to procure a complete outfit when they enter
tho normal. The cost of books for a largo
family, of children is no small item, and wo
knpwofno more practicable way of helping
to lessen tho expenses of tho taxpayer, than
by sotno such method as that in the sugges
tion above made.

"Ths attacks upon the railroads did not
spring from the mad tury of an "insurrec

nit( .intelligible Communistic movement.
They' were rather the Iruit of evil teachings
germinating in the minds of ignorant men.
The mass of the railway insurgents, like the
"ilollio Macuires" of the Pennsylvania coal
fields, whose reiirn of terror has only just
come to mi enu7are uneducated Irish and
German immigrants, disposed to resent their
late tail in wages as a personal wrong."

Till: CAUSE OF TUB STRIKE.
Tho Mellefonte Watchman puts it in this
"More than a score and a half of years ago
a great hue and cry was raised about tho mis
erics of the Southern negroes, and a great
party determined that they bhould bo free.
To accomplish this end, it brought on a tre
mendous civil war. Immense armies wero
rai'od and hundreds of thousands of men were
lain, and at laat the negroes wero free. The
Republican party accomplished its object. It
released tho negroes from tho control of good
masters, who gavo them plenty of food and
clothing, into a stato of "freedom," but in
which they have ever since found themselves
ten times worsa off than they ever were in
slavery. It spent thousands of millions of
dollars to do this, and the loss of tho money
thus spent, tho tremendous taxation to make
it up, the unwiso legislation consequent upon
it. and tho extravagance, theft and robbery it
gave riso to, have impoverished tho people
and stopped all tho industries of tho land,
thus reducing tho wages to starvation prices
and throwing millions of honest whito labor
ers out of employment. At its very worst
ihaso, tho condition of tho negroes of tho
South was nover ono-tcnth as bad as that of
the poor miners of tho Luzcrno region in
enusylvania to-day. And yet thousands of
these very men no doubt fought for tho Ro-
ublican party to freo tho negroes! Now,
that party by its infamous legislatiou, its ox-
travaganco, its wickedness, its corruption and
ts favoritism for tho rich as against the poor,
ms left tho laborers of tho oouutry to starve
Although in power for moie than sixteen
ears, it has brought things to such a condi
tion that thero is no longer any work or any
money for the poor man. With nothing to

CULTY in identifying Tin: remains.
Full reports of the burning of Pestering
& Co's. cigar box factory, by which six em
ployes lost their lives, as gleaned from our
Cincinnati exchanges show thatthe building
was erected about a year ago, and as con
structed was nothing but a man-trap. Tho
engine room, where the fire originated, is in
the rear of the building, and near it an ele
ctor runs from the top of the building to
the bottom, and there is a piano leading from
the fourth Btory to the engine room, through
hich all sawdust, fine pieces of wood and
chips were dropped, and it was in this de.
ris that a upark fell. The flames flashed to
the top story, where about twenty girls were
ere employed. The poor things had not a
moment's warning of the terrible catastrophe
and the first intimation they received that
beneath them were hungry, roaring, and de
vouring flames was their eutranco through
the floors aud windows. Blinded and near
ly suffocated by smoke, and almost fainting
from the iutcuse heat, they rushed in fran
tic terror to the windows on either side of
the building; but theirescape was impossible
as to jump to the ground was almost certain
leath. The stairways were ablaze, and all
hope by this means was abandoned. Three
men In Wheatly's place, next door, ran to
the rear,, and, looking up to tho flame-en
veloped building, beheld seven or eight Im
prisoned girls standing at and in the wind
ows, wringipg their hands in terror and be
seeching help, their voices sounding loud
and clear above the din and confusion of
crackling flames and the noise of the excited
crowd. Soon the floor gave way and three
girls were seen to throw their arms up and
fall through to the ground floor. When their
bodies wero afterwards recovered not a shred
of clothing remained by which their friends
could tell who they were. A large number
were seriously and more fatally wounded.

organized party of twelve or fifteen men.who
came from Mexico sometime during the
night of yesterday. They liberated two des

jail and opened fire upon every one in the

enmity attorney, Sir. Noah Cox, and two
jailors, and severely heating one other jailor
and a woman. Two ot the party were recog
nized by name. The one is a fugitive from
jail, and the other is a resident of Camargo,
"The prisoners who wero thus liberated
are named Segunda Garza and Rudolpho

against the laws and public peace demands

The New York Sun declares that on th'
night before Judge Bradley, of the electoral
commission, delivered his opinion in the
Florida case, he read it over to Judges Clif
ford and Field, and tho conclusion of it
was, "that the votes of the Tilden electors I
Florida were tho only votes which ought to
be counted as coming from that State.
That was his opinion when he finished th
naner. But. "during the whole of that
nleht Judge Bradley's house In Washington
was surrounded by the carriages of visitors
who catuo to sco him, apparently about tho
decision of the electoral commission," and
next day, lo "Judge Bradley gave his
voico In favor of counting the votes of the
Hayes electors In Florida 1" This Is a state
ment of alleged'facts that carries with it th
unmistakable charge that Judge Bradley
was tampered with, and was Induced by out
side Influences to change an opinion upon

accusation, and ii It cau be justified should

bitter indignation at tlio wicked pains that

It is the story of tho Cusloi masacro over I
again, without a redeeming feature nnd hard-
a ray of comfort to lighten tho wunbro
tale. General Terry set out on tho campaign
cainst Sittinz Bull nnd met a powerful
bravo and stragctic foe on a battle-ground of Lof
is own choosing. Custer s bravo soul dis-
dained thoughts of prulenconnd caution, and
his life paid tho penalty of his rashness,
Tho nrmy had barely enough men left to get
back to reinforcements. That General How-
nrd's campaign against tho Nez Forces could
mvo any better ending was almost hoping
against hopo. Had ho been conducting a
Mojdy and Sankcy movement or a Murphy
tempcranco revival his egotistical and despi-
cablo bulletins might liavo been less out of
placo. Rut ho was pursuing tho bravest and
the strongest tribo of Indians in tho conn-
try, through a region with which they wero
loroughly familiar, its conformation such
that they could cliooso their ground so that
ono man might well stand ngaiut a thousand.
Ho was entering nn a campaign such as has
balked tho energies nnd defied tho strategy of
our nblcst general,and ho spent his timo tell-
inn the people in tho Fast how skillfully Gen.
Howard was conccntratine his forces, how ho
was driving Joseph, and how tho capture of
is wholo forco was only a question of days.
t last ho learns that Joseph is ready to sur-
ndcr, and whilo ho hastens to inform tho
ar Department aud an anxious public whom
10 has appointed to rcceivo Joseph's surrcn
ler, the wily Indian chief is quietly planning
tho trap which has cost us two scoro of our
rarest men. General Howard's plan of fight-
ing tho Indians by telegraph lias tho merit of
novelty, it is true, but its success does not
seem to warrant its general use in tho futuro.
Bravo General Gibbon pushed ahead with
is little command, numbering less than half I
regiment 182 men all told with Howard
thirty-six or forty-eight hours in tho rear,
Coming up with the Indians at night ho left

them with 7f0 men, but the fate of Custer
lad no warning for them. They rushed in
.single-handed, charged upon the lodgus and
were repulsed. The fighting continued all
day and ended by tho troops holding their
own. Rut they had gained nothing; they
ad lost a man for every Indian that bit

General Howard is primarily responsible
for tho sacrifice of these men. Tho soldiers
who had won laurels on nobler fields only to
lay them down on tho prairies in a vain con
test with savages, were lost becauso wo had
not a general in Howard's placo. It was on
Wednesday that Gibbon's force attacked the
main body of the Indians. Howard, with tlio
main body of the pursuing forco, was so far
in tho rear that ho had uot heard of tho bat-
e when a courier left on Friday. General
Howard must answer for moving in this
straggling way. Then General Gibbon must
render an account for the foolhardincss which
led him to risk tho attack that ho did with
reinforcements almost two days march in tho
rear, assailing a forco quite as great as his
own in a camp with natural defenses and on
battle-ground chosen by the enemy. Tho
whole sad affair is only another of tho many
lessons that we have learned with stripes and
ores, that Indians must bo fought in their
own way. i hey uo not attacK by rule nor
defend in accordance with Upton. In short,
ono ought to movo against them not with
gold laco aud epaulets, but with buckskin
and moccasins. Wo mut fight Indians with
Indian fighters. A trapper is worth all tho
generals that West Point ever turned out to
plan tho campaign, and ono frontiersman is
worth a dozen regulars, bravo as they arc.

A Call fur Investigation.
Iteferring to tho labor troubles in the Uni
ted Statea. tbo London Daily Kews of a ro-
cent date says
"Though the worat maybe over, as re
gards violence, it will be important to learn
how it is over, and whether violence and
riot will be allowed to celebrate a triumph
over law and to carry off tho spoila of victo
It will be interesting to ascertain, too,
n what proportion tho rioters consisted of
native and in what proportion of foreign
workmen. Something of the futuro proa.
perity of the United States is involved iu
that questiou. Whether the authors and
contrivers of tho strike were workmen and
trades unionists, or whether tho instigators
came from other quartets is a matter which
will need investigation when peace is ro'
stored. Such an Interruption of traffic and
the means of locomotion as is usually the
accompaniment of war has separated some
of tbo most Important cities of tho nation.
Though the trade and profit have been in
part diverted to other lines on which a strike
lid not take placo, yet, apart from the injU'
ry to person and property, and the murder'
ous destruction of human life, the balance of
inconvenience and trouble cannot bo estinu-
ted. The matter will, it may be hoped, be
sifted to tho bottom.
What is the Difference ?
In another column of tho Watchman we
republish an account of the valient (?) man
ner in which our Governor and his troops
'forced their way to Pittsburg." It will be
observed that the bravest part of the work,
as given by the correspondent,was the bunt'
ing up "crews which he procured only after
placing revolver, at their head, and.ordering
them unaer ytnatiy oj aeam 10 gei on ine toco-
Motives." Now, what we would like to know
Is, where the difference is between a striker
who, with a revolver in his band, prevents a
brother workman from doing his duty, and
a State official, with a revolver in his hand,
forcing men under penalty of death to work
for waees they deem insufficient? The one
l M r.Wr a violation of Ian and iustice aa
the other, and each are alike euiltv of riot,
if that kind of work constitutes riot.
It is certainly a sad commentary upon the
rnndltlnn nf affairs in tbls Commonwealth
to see the Governor, with tho militia at his

A diabolical attempt was mado in Seranlon
on Wednesday night of last week at about !l
o'clock, to surrender sixol the Mayor s Iato

and tho mob assembled nl Taylorsvillc, but
their plan was thwarted by the prompt ac-
lion ol tho military, which took possesion

statements mado by several of thd Aider
man s deputies that tha posso when arrested
wero to bo taken In wagons to Wilkcsbarro;
and it was also stated that they would never

writes a correspondent of tho I'rest, "that it
was tlio intention of the friends of the dead
rioters, and you may call all tho stikers their
friends now, to liavo taken tho gentlemen

conspiracy, however, was frustrated by tho
prompt action of General Huldekopcr." Tho
samu correspondent adds: "Mayor McKuno
says that tho action of tho jury was no sur
pnso to hluii but that there could and would
not bo any reasonable doubt of its verdict bo
jng set asido, as ho himself gavo tho order for
tho posso to fire, aud that he, m his official
capacity, is cntiiely rcsponsiblo for tho action
of the posse, nnd the rioters alono aro to blauio
for the killing of their friends. Warrants nro

tlcincn aro all men of standing, nnd for this
reason appear to have incurred tho most bit
tor hatred of tlio strikers. W. W. Scranton,
tho superintendent of tho Coal aud IronCom-
pany, who was m command of tho posso at
the timo of tho riot is especially obnoxious to
tho strikers, and they would not hesitnto to
murder him if they had tho opportunity. The
military will have to bo kept here for some
time yet if tho pesont stato of feeling contin
ues. Tho strikers won't work nor will they
allow others to ; and how they are to livo
much longer without it is a very serious ques-
tion, as hundreds of them now are upon tlio
verge of starvation. They must be fed somo
way, or thero will bo serious troublo in thi
region before many days."
Governor Hartranft went up on Wcdncs
day with his stall' and a body guard. His
head quarters were in a palace car, with en-
gino attached, ready to start at short notice,
Tho persons who wero taken from tho con
stable by Huidekopcr's command were taken
to Wilkcsbarro before Judgo Harding and al
lowed to enter bail in tho sum of $.1,000 each
lor killing several of the mob.
The B'orW gives the following as tho rea
son why violence got the upper hand, in the
judgment of that paper : "It seems to us
clear that the tcmporarv success of thi;
abominable insurrectionary movement has
been due, not to the weakness of the general
government, but tho weakness of tho states
and municipalities. It is well that the gen
crai government should he strengthencd,and
thcie can bo no doubt that it will be. But
tho immediate duty of good citizens is at
their own doors, for tho imbecility of our lo
cal governments is at the root of the present
disorder. It was primarily their duty to
deal with tho rioters, and had they been
generally in a condition for prompt and vig
orous action no general disturbance could
have occurred. If West Virginia had been
able to assort her authority at the beginning
of tho unlawtul interference with the run
ning of trains it probably would have gone
no further. Had the mayor of every muni
cipality which has been threatened with dis
order thrown himself into the front with all
tho organized forco of tho locality and called
upon tho citizens of the place to support
him, wo do not believe thero is a town in
the country in which rioters could -have
maintained control lor twenty-four hours.
Had the sheriffs of every county disturbed
by disorderly strikers and the scoundrels
who followed in their wake called upon the
community to aid him in enforcing the law
and led the way in the task, no railroad
trains need have been delayed no property
destioyed. If our' civilization is not. a fail
ure, tho idle, the vicious, tho lawless in
every town and city must be a small minor
ity, and in a minority easily controlled by
tlio well-to-do intelligent and law-abiding
elements, if only the latter are led by men
and not by demagogues or figure-heads.
In most of tho cases where riot was immi
nent in old and well-governed municipalities
it was suppressed ; where it raged unchecked
tho calamity may in most cases be traced to
the weakness of tho local authorities."
A Wild Man
Hughesville and vicinity havo been in a
state of excitement for a few days past, on
account of the rumor that a wild man bad
been seon in the woods near that place. The
report was not fully credited until Thursday
morning, when the Htrange object was Been
by Hon, George Steck and others, In a corn
field owned by Jlr, Steck. The news spread
like wild fire, and the excitement was terri
ble. Every able bodied man ran for his
gun, and a company of thirty or forty men
and b.ys, fully armed, was Immediately
formed, and started in pursuit of tho object,
resolved to solve tho mystery. It is reported
to be a very large man, entirely naked and
very shy, running swiftly away when ap
proached by any one. Tho searching party
returned lato Thursday, not having been
successful in capturing the mysterious being
although several of the party claim to have
seen it at some distance. It is probably
some lunatic, who, to suit his mad fancy,
has taken to the oods, there to end his
wretched days. Another party Btart out 1m-

towns and villages.
Where in tho morning thero was a thriv

thero wero no moro than threo houses left

A bottlo was picked up a few days ago
near Quebec containing a paper with the
word: "Whoever finds this bottle let them

say no more" Tho paper was scorched and
much decayed. It had no signature or date.
Tbo steamship 'l'icton' left Quebec on tho

found of her was some of her spars and
other pieces of tho wreck.

Although shut up within four walls, with
death-warrant hanging over him, Jack
Kehoo does not despair of his life yet. Ho
says : "I can eat more now than ever I
could. Of course I am falling oil' in flesh
though this is from confinement and lack of
exercise. But I can't complain. I am bet
ter off than many are outside, as I hear; I
have plenty to eat." His case comes before
the Supreme Court in October next. Ho
confidently expects relief, because tho oth

tho second degree.
A hunter in tho woods of northern Mich
igan fell into an old mine holo or well re
cently. He was badly bruised, 'but his cries
attracted attention, and ho was drawn out
with a rope. An exploration of the holo
was made the next day, and a human skele
ton was found nt the bottom in a sitting po
sition. Investigation left no doubt that It
was the skeleton of a man who had fallen
in and perished of starvation. Marks on
the Bide of tho excavation showed where he
had tried to cut step?, and his rusted gun
was found near the top. An old almanac
for the year 180G, taken from tho remains
of his clothing, rendered It probable that he
met his fate in that year.
