In Another column will lie found a call fur
a meeting of cltizons oT the aevernl Inmi
Hliipt In the county on September 1st, Tor
the purpose of electing deWates to b con
veutinn, to be held on .Monday, the 3d, to
consider the erection of the proponed new

object of thta convention U wo are not in
formed. If it Ii to oppose the erection of
the building at this time, we are not in ac
cord with it. Kverrthing ha been done
that nan required in order to put the build
lag under way, contract hare been made,
and workmen are now engted In laying
the foundation?. If the whole thing should
be atoppetl It would be n great damage to
contractors who have gone to much expense
to put themselves in shape to fulfill their
agreements, and it is a question whether the
county would not have large damages to pay
If the work should be indefinitely postponed.
A new jail is needed. For years it has
been a mockery of justice to put a criminal

It requires a half dozen nrmed policemen.
ro bavo already expressed our disappro
bation of tho location, and of some other
things, and shall therefore say nothing more
on thai, subject, lint we bavo always been
In favor ot a new building, because the pres
ent one ii a disgrace to a county liko ours,
and hecanso it i.s not suitable for tho pur
poses for which it is used.
The cost of the j.ill is a question in which
every tax-payer is interested, and as it is to
be tho propel ly of tho people, they have a
perfect right to meet together for the purpose
of dlscuasiug questions of public economy.
They also have a right to hold public officers
to a str'ct accountability for every dollar of
public money that is expended, nnd if they
believe tbo County Commissioners are about
to erect a jail at greater expense than is
neceasary they will bo but exercising the
rights of freemen in so expressing themselves
in a convention.
The new prison will stand for ages to
come. It should therefure be sufficiently
Urge and substantial to meet the wants of
this county for many generations. But it
need not be a monument of extravagance.
The erection of this building may prove
a blessing to the county in moro ways than
one. Jt will put in circulation a large
mount oi money, brought in from foreign
parta by tbe sale of bonds, and as tho bond
will bear but four per cent, interest and be
made payable in six or ten years, (they
should be made even longer than that if
possible, so that coming generations may
pay weir snare or tliem,) a small tax will
pay tbe Interest, and before the principal
becomes due it is to be hoped that the pres
ent hard times will have been forgotten.
We are therefore in favor of completing
tbe work begun, because it is too late to
stop. If the object of this convention is to
oppose its completion, it comes so tardily
that but little good can be accomplished. If
It is to guard the rights of the tax-payers,
then we are with it, heart and soul.
Complaints are being constantly made
that black bass are being taken from the
Susquehanna river In large quantities by
unlawful means, and that if this goes on
unterrupted much longer the stream will be

shows how this abuse may be stopped.

DEMOCRATIC STATE CONVENTION.
Tbe Democracy of 1'ennsylvanla gathered
at Ilarrlsburg, on tho 21st lust, in couven
lion tii nnmlnato candidates fur Auditor
Cleneral, Treasurer and Huprcmo .fudge.
There was tlinmiial amount of rnnvasin
by tbe mends of the neural aspirants,
There an many imrms nientiuiHil tor tl;
several positions, l-'or Auditor Oeneral
lton. W. 1'. Sclicll has but llltlo opposition
l-'or Treasurer, Hon, Joseph Powell, of
Bradford county, Col. Noycs, of Clinton
and J. ! Barr, of Allegheny, were most
prominent, while tho contest for Judge lias
narrowed down to Judge Trunkey, of Ve
uaiign, and ! armnn Sheppard, of Phila
has occupied much attention from tho more
thoughtful leaders, and the sentiment
very general that it will be conservative.
The organization of the convention was
the chief bone of contention. Hon. W, S,
Stenger, member oi Congress from Franklin
was supported by the friends of Cot. Noycs
and Hon. Edward 11. Worrell, of I'hiladel
phia, was the Barr caudldate. Stenger has
personal strength by reasou of his position
wider reputation and conceded ability,
which gave him an advantage in the race,
while Worrell was handicapped In l'hlla
delphla by his open opposition to Sheppard,
nnd has but little acquaintance in the rural
the surnniiE judgeship.
Tho Judgeship is involved in the greatest
uncertainty. Mr. Shepperd could undoubt
edly be nominated if the Philadelphia dele-
gallon was thoroughly and earnestly united
in his support, but while nearly all ot tho
members will vote for lilm, there are a num
ber who do not conceal their preference for
another man. A few would retnliato on
him for trying Kelly too often, others really
want Patlison for Auditor Oeneral, nnd
others display tho usual cussedness that
characterizes Fhiladelphians In alt party
conventions. It looks as if tho contest was
really between Sheppard and Trunkey and
the result depending upon the fidelity with
which Sheppard shall be supported by bis
own delegation. If ho fails it will be be
cause ho is wounded in tho houso of bis
friends. A whirlwind is quite possible that
will throw the nomination to Wilson, of
Beaver, or Golden, of Armstrong, but tho
Issue seems to be pretty square, so far, be
tween Sheppard and Trunkey.
I.uzerne will likely vote for Trunkey,
Kchcll and Xovc-i. Berks will oto nearly
or quite solid tho same way, and Lancaster
will vote 5 for Barr and 3 for Noyes and
give Sheppard 0 votes. Bucks and Mont
gomery incline to Truukcy, but may divide
in favor of Sheppard, and they will also bo
divided between Noyes and Barr. Noyes
has tho Northeast pretty clean and tho bulk
of the whole southern tier east of tho moun
tains, exceptiug York, whero there is a divi
sion. The Juniata and West Branch re
gions are generally for Noyes, the West
Branch enthusiastically so. The North is
for ex-Congressman Powell, of Bradford,
and the West and Northwebt aro mainly for
Barr, with frequent exceptions for Noyes.
Barrsufl'ers from a galling firo in his rear,
not only from Allegheny, but also from
many other western counties. It comes
from both delegates and outsiders. While
the efforts for Barr are much better directed
than those for Noyes, tho nomination of
Barr is barely possible, while that of Noyes
seems to be inevitable. Unless tho conven
tion should be thrown with a jerk into some
perfoimance not down in any of the bills
Powell would tethe compromise candidate
in the c vent of a smash in both tbe regular
slates, but it does not seem likely that there
will be u dead-lock between Noyes and
TWO NOMINATIONS MADE.
The following dispatch to the Jlscord of
the Timet is the latest news received by us
up to this time. (Thursday 11, a. m.) The
morning papers, as usual, when most need
ed did not get through to-day.
IIarpisburo, Aug. 22. The Democratic
State Convention met in the hall of the
House of Representatives at noon to-day.
Many of the most prominent Democrats of
the State were present. At twelve o'clock,
noon, Capt. Wm. McClellan, Chairman of
the Stato Central Committee called the con
vention to order and presented list of dele
gates banded to him and then banded tbe
convention over to them. Jacob Zeigler, of
Butler county, and editor of the Butler Her
ald was made temporary chairmau. Hon.
A. C. Noyes, of Lock Haven was nomina
ted for Stato Treasurer and Hon. W. P.
Schell, of Bedford county for Auditor Gen
eral. A close contest is now going on be
tween Sheppa'd of Philadelphia and Trun
key of Venango for the nomination of Su
preme J udge.
Judge Trunkey was nominated for Su
preme Judge on the fourth ballot, on Wed
Trouble at 1'ittston.
Pittston, August 18. According to a no-
tieo posted last night to tho effect that tlio
miners and laborers employed by the Penn
sylvania Coal Co, were to meet their bosses
at their respective places of work this morn
ing at ten o'clock, at and about each placo
thero gathered all the employees to hear what
proposition tbo company hud to make. Af
ter calling the different meetings to order tho
bosses read tho following petition, which had
been transmitted to each works: "Wo tho
undersigned miners, laborers and other em
ployes of tho Pennsylvania Company, do
hereby agrco to resume work immediately
upon the saino rates as paid in July, 1877,
leaving it to our company to mako an ad
vance, should thoyin their judgment deem
it proper so to do. ' The reading of tho pa
per was in most cases received with a firm
"no," Action was then taken and out of
three thousand five hundred men and boys
employed by this company thcro was less
than 200 that would feign it under any circuia
itanies. Tho'cencral icelinir anions; tho com-
uiunity is, that bad tho company put up a
notice for all tho works to etart up at onco
tlicro would not have been any trouble, but as
it is now the men will not sign tho petition
nor will they go to work without a raiso. It
looks ai if tho company, instead of being
afraid of the Scrautoo miners, had fears of
their own employes, or they would not havo
taken this unwiso aud injudicious courso to
stir up n feeling between themselves aud tho
men at this critical moment As it is now,
this is a dead lock between them which time
can only tell when it will be broken.
The trial of Jacob Huntzlnger and J,
Albert lluutzlnger, president aud cashier of
tho suspended Miners' Trust Company of
l'ottsville, Is now going on at Reading be
fore the Court of Quarter Sessions, a change
of venue having been obtained. The charge
is contplracy to defraud depositors, and the
trial Is secret. It Is alleged that $-100,000
belonging to tho bank was divided among
the Huntzlnger family shortly before tbe
assignment. Tbe counsel for tbe accused
aro fighting the case at every ttep, having
begun with a plea to tbo jurisdiction of the
court, which has not yet been decided.

fullow up tlio "iny coitilicato" business by

Loo, as tho next witness.
Loo is a light-colored mulatto. Ho was
formerly n slave. .My first remembrance of
him was in 1807 as a witness in tho cno of
tlio United Slates iignimt Crump, Davis
Arniin, for running nn illicit distillery. Ho
struck mo ns n man of great self-possession
nndshrowdncss for his opportunities. After
reconstruction ho was nude a member of the
Legislature from Aiken county, and evinced
such tact as n parliamentarian that ho was
generally called to prosido in the Speaker's
absence. This made him Speaker when
Muses was elected Governor, llu soon began
to drivo tho most spanking team through Ai
ken and Augusta, G. This made General
Elliot who prided himself on his equipage,
jealous. Klliott was only a member of
Congress at the time. At tlio next elec-
tion Klliot mado Leo tako a back scat, and
was himself made a member of tho Lcgisl.v
lure, and then Speaker in Leo's placo. Lee
contented himself with a county office until
last election, when ho ran for Solicitor of tho
Circuit and was elected. Ho has been several
times complimented in tho Democratic news

Tho committee keep Governor Moses well
in hand fiucc their success in confronting him
and his papers witli the distinguished Judge.
They havo him and his faithful body .servant,
Robert, installed in rooms in tho Greenfield
building, and provided with meals from Pol-
luckV, not far from tho Stato Houve, so thai
ho can bo within calling distance should any
of tho witnesses swerve from the Pentateuch
or fair liooks of Moses.
Lea was in jail, with no hope of giving bail.
Hosaw tho fate of llio "distinguished Judge,"
and ho knew ho must swear like an Israelite
according to tho Pentateuch. Accordingly,
when he was brought forward, ho too, mado a
clean breast of it. His testimony was mainly
as to tho pay certificates issued by himself as
Speaker and those issued iu connection with
Lieutenant Governor Gleaves, who presided
over the Senate. Ho was not as lavish with
these papers as Moses, but told enough to
keep Governor Gleavcs, who is hiding out,
fioni ever returning to stand his trial. The
committee were bo well tatisficd with the
completeness of Leo's story that they left him
out of jail upon ids individual recognizance,
upon condition that ho would resign his so
licitorship. Loo is now rcpoited to bo ono of
tho loaders in tho Liberian exodus.

THOMAS JEITEIloON'B PLAN FOR THE SET
TLEMENT OF ELECTORAL DISPUTES.
The New York World i.s indebted to Miss
Sarah N. Randolph, a great-granddaughter of
Thomas Jefferson, for a memorandum pre
pared by her illustrious ancestor, of practical
suggestions towards a bill to regulate tho de
cision of disputes over tho results of a Presi

who was a Senator from Virginia in 1800,and

Tlio Worklngmnn's Party.
Those who aim at tho establishment of
tho destructive doctrines of tho associations
engaged In tlio recent "strikes" can do not!
lug moro Innocent than lo form political
(larlles, and If passionate and bigoted men
can blow off their surplus pteam In the form
of platforms nf principles nnd nplnlnns,
nobody, unless It bo themselves, will be
greatly hurt. They should be encouraged
In suclf amusements. To begin to look Into
tho mnuRgement of public nllalrs may lead
somo of them lo understand something of
Thcro are somo things so plain that any
sane man, if ho will think coolly, will
readily rccognlzo them. For instance :
1. Tearing down established Institution
is not always followed by the building up of
others calculated to benefit tho people.
2. When evils exist In n community it
requires a high order of Intelligence, much
Information and calm judgment to find
means to removo them,
3. Our Government places all power In
tho hands of tho people, nnd any funda
mental cbango lu Its character must tako a
part or tho wholo from them.
It Is truo that the people havo been cajoled
by demagogues, and havo permitted them to
use nnd abuso this power. The people havo
allowed politicians to impose heavy indirect
taxes upon them, and to uso llio money for
selfish purposes. Representatives in Con
gress, iu Stato Legislatures, and iu mutiicl
pallties have been elected by the people, or
allowed to gain positions through neglect of
voters to guard their own rights, nnd while
ostensibly representing the people liavo sold
special privileges to corporations for bribes
nnd havo dono nothing to improve tho con
dition nf the people. Instead of selecting
from their own occupations men of their
own condition to represent them and take
care of their interests, the voters havo per
mitted persons who mako a trade of politics
to manage (lections and to elect themselves.
In most cases they have received tho votes
of tho people. No form of government can
protect voters from tho consequences of their
own folly nnd negllgenco; and whllo woik-
ingmen will listen to tho appeals of crafty
demagogues who pander to their prejudices
they will always bo dupes and victims.
1. It is not easy for men deprived of the
ordinary comforts of life to look upon those

owning tho property of rich nun is no
remedy for those inequalities which exists in
society, nnd every net of violence tends to

The recent riots of tho railroad strikers
have done more to injure tho causo of free
government in all civilized nations than
theso men can ever repair. Tboy have
given tho friends of imperialism tho argu
ments against liberal institutions which
they most desired.
In different parts of the country, persons
professing to represent workingmcn have
attempted to euunciato principles for n new
party ; but their notions are so crude as to
show clearly that they do not know what
measures the present troubles of the country
need. If workingmcn in their associations
would dispassionately discuss questions in
which their interests aro involved, much
good might como of it, but they will accom
plish nothing of importance unless they
will discard tho demagogues who strive to
ufluenco their prejudices, and who, them
selves, at least, aro utterly indifferent to
results so that they mako profit and cscapo

Tno Tichlurno Claimant. '
Orton, the everlasting claimant, continues
to worry tho public mind in England and to
aggravate editors. A few weeks ago ho in
duced n fellow-convict, William Duncan,
who was about to be discharged, to write to
tho Timet, detailing tho alleged grievances
of tho obese prisoner. Duncan's statements
were forthwith categorically denied. Orton
is declared to bo in good health, and o ex
tremely troublesome that he has frequently
to be subjected to punishment. And now
comes Mr. Charles Dunsby, one of tho
Tichborno jury, who has addressed a petition
to the Queen, in which ho states that he be
lieves he was in error in agreeing to a ver
dict against tbe defendant. He adds thnt
since tho trial he has become acquainted
with facts which the defendant could not
then have brought in evidence, but which,
if ho had known them at tho time, would
have prevented him from giving such n ver
dict. Tbe petitioner therefore asks that Her
Mojesty will bo pleased to order that tho
defendant be forthwith released, or that
fresh inquiries may be instituted into tho
matter. Her Majesty's Judges, to whom
similar applications havo been repeatedly
made, are not likely to waver in their de
termination to protect society against such a
calamity as the reopening of the Tichborno

Tlio Reasons cf It.
That narrow-minded nnd unenlightened
journal, the Springfield liepublican, is sur
prised "at the hesitation of a largo class of
Republican leaders," "who havo virtuo en
ough to perceive the virtuo of Mr. Hayes'
administrative reforms, in comini; forward
openly and heartily in tho endorsement of
him and his work,"
There is nothing to be surprised at in this
Indeed, any other result would be surpris
ing. It is impossible that Mr. Hayes should
succeed in roforming anything, because ho
owes his office to Fraud first triumphant in
American history. That strikes him with
impotence from tho start. No intelligent,
self-respecting Republican leader can en
dorse him, or undertako in earnest to coop
erate with him.
A second reasou may bo given for his col
lapse, and that is tbo incompctenco of the
men be bus called about him as official ad
visers. Such a Cabinet was never before
composed. Tho elements of common senso
and practical executive faculty are absent
from every man in it, except Mr, Thompson
in tbe Navy Department, and perhaps our
own Mr. Evarta. No doubt Messrs. Schurz,
Key, and Dcvens possess certain kinds of
talent, but as practical men they are utter
failures. It is an opera bouffo Cabinet,
Moreover, tho civil servico reform, so
called, which Mr. Hayes has undertaken,
and which the Springfield Republican ad
mires, is contrary to tlio Constitution of tho
United States; and no man who understands
I he provisions nnd appreciates tho supremacy
of tho constitution, will give it bis endorse
Thero Is still nuother reason 'why Mr.
Hayes' administration cannot como to any
good, and this is the intellectual Incapacity
of Mr. Hayes himself. Very possibly he
might mako a fair country justlco of tho
peace, but when Buch n man is placed in tho
position of President he becomes absurd.

Taking Usurious Interest.
WM. DUNCAN A llROTlIEIt VS. THE 1'IRST
NATIONAL BANK OP MOUNT
In au action under tho 80tb section of tho
- National Bank Law of June 3, 18G4, to
recover from a bank the penalty for taking
usurious interest: Heidi
1. Special Acts of Assembly, authorizing
certain banks to charge a higher rate ot in
terest than six per cent, apply only to such
banks as were created by them.
2. That Congress deals with general rules
regulating banks and the rate of interest to
be charged. The rate of Interest in Penn
pylvunla being six per cent, tbe taking more
than this amount Is usury, and Is prohibited
by the National Banking Law,
3. Whero more than six per cent, has been
paid, tbo borrower, or his legal representa
tive, may recover back from said bank, in
an action for debt, double tbo amount of in
terest thus paid or retained : lovided, suit
is commenced within two years from tho
time the usurious transaction occurred.

Lieutenant Pnrncll companies of cavalry,
Captain Wilkinson, General Howard's aid-do-enmp,
is here, to assist Colonel Wllkins
aud Indian luspectors in the settlement of
affairs with tho Indians In this section.
Word has been sent to nil the different tribes
to collect at this point for this purpose
They nro coming in rapidly nnd largo num
bers attended divine servico in tho camp yes
terday, Mr. Simms, Indian Agent from
Colville, ninety miles distant, wits prescut.
There nro expected to bo nearly ono hun
dred Chiefs and head men, representing tho
following tribes, present at tho coming Coun
cil: Lakes, Pond d'Oreilles, Colvlllcs,
Sjiokancs, Cocur d'AIcnes, San Poucls, Eno
spellcms, Methows, Chalkancs, Anti Atkas,
the Mooes band, or Columbia river Indians,
and the Okanngons, amounting in all to
3517 men, women and children and ablo to
furnish 1500 warriors. The report says they
nro not well nrmed. The above nil mbers
aro obtained from tho chiefs actually pres
ent, nnd nro somo 400 less than tho census
of 1871. There has been no act jal outbreak
among tlico Indians, but since the war com
menced there has been manifest uneasiness
among them, nnd many instances of inipu
dence on their part reported by settlers.
Four Nez Perces were put in tbo guard houe
this morning, supposed to be connected with
Hush Hush Cult's band, part of which now
is with Joseph, and that they know some
thing of tho minder of the old man Richie
and other robberies perpetrated on Pino
Creek, which cimcd all tho settlers in that
vicinity to leavo their homes somo weeks
since. They will bo detained until It is as
certained positively whether they are guilty
or not, there h no doubt that all the In
dians iu this section have been indirect com
munication witli Joseph, and havo been
ported several daj s ahead of the whiles of
every movement id' General Howard's ar
my, nnd iu case of Joseph's success bun
dreds of young men would undoubtedly
bavo followed Mm, although tho old Indians
who bavo stock farms in tlio country havo
manifested n desiro to remain at peace.
There is iiaturally.much anxiety felt among
tho settlers hs to thu result of the coining
conlerenee, ns they fear in case it is not sat
islactory to tbe Indians and tho troops
should leave, that they would have to aban
don their liuiiies and leavo tho Indians as
