Tt Is n pertinent fact Hint since tlio Demo
crats have resumed control In tho Southern
States there lia-t not beeu a whimper about
"outtngen"in that section It proves either that
tho alleged outrages were mwufActured by
the carpet-baggers for political purposes, or
that they were utterly Incompetent to govern.
As a matter of fact there is at present more
peace and better order than in many of tho
ltepub1can Siatcs North. Primarily this is
due to the Democratic ascendancy in the
Southern States, but the result is also large
ly due to the adoption by Hayes of tho
Democratic platform and policy as regard!

not elected President, and hu dared not ily

In (act in his Southern tour we think ho
has gone further than even Tiiden would
have done. In Tennessee Secretary Evarts
eulogized Andrew Johnson, a matter that
would have been called treason even if done
by a Democrat in 1868. But to tap the
climax, in his speech at Atlanta on Satur
day last, Mr. Hayes said :
"And now. ray colored friends, who have
thought or who have been told that I was
turning my back upon tho men whom I
fought for, now listen: After thinking it
over I believed that your rights and interests
would be safer if this great mass of intelli

And now, my colored friends, let mo say
another thing. Wo havo been trying it for

the candidate of the party for Governor of

Not beinganatlvoof New Jersey,althougb
citizen and a resident of tho State for the
(last fourteen years, I recognize with all the
.more pride the great honor conferred upon
roe by so large a portion of the citizens of
my adopted State. The fact that the nomi

Being assured that it is the unanimous wish
of the Democratic party, I accept the nami

Convention hare my hearty approval.
I beg gentlemen, to offer through you, to

honesty and economy in the expenditures oi

The venerable and distinguished Judgo
Elwell In his courteous reply gives nn emi
nently satisfactory reason for declining the
nomination of tho labor party for tbo mi-
prcino bench. He says that having full

of all others, he cannot consent to become

zatlon." Judge Etwell Is held In the high'
est esteem by the worklnEincn of Pcnnsyl
vania for the judicial integrity of his rulings
in deputes between labor and capital. On
A memorable occasion he was selected as
umpiro between tho anthracite, coal miners
and their employers, nnd such was the fair
ness of his decision that it was cheerfully
acquiesced In by both sides and remained for
years a substantial adjustment of the ills
pute. Tlio counsel aad example of Judgo
Elwell aro worthy ol being heeded by dent
ocrats who have been almost persuaded to
separate themselves from tlio great and
glorious organization of the democratic party
and connect themselves with new and
ephemeral parties.
In this admirable letter Judge Elwell fur
tber says that ho "has always been ready to
f.tvor nnd support every legislative nud gov
crnmental reform which may tend to benefit
the laboring classe, promote) all industrial
pursuits, and guard with Impartial juclg-
merit the rights and Interests of both labor
and capital." All who know this venerable
jurist have the utmost faith in his sincerity
and patriotic purpose. He sees no necessity
of abandoning the democratic party to seek
new combinations. In his honest judgment
workingmen nnd nil others will find in the
democratic party the best agency for tho ac
complishment of all needed political and
social reforms. The democratic party has
been out of power upwards of sixteen years
more than four presidential terms, and it
would be the utmost folly to hold that party
responsible for tho evils that have fallen
upon the iudustry of tho country or for tho
failuro to provide the proper remedies. It
would bo equally foolish to nbandon the
great democratic party just when it is enter
ing upon control of the entire legislative de
partment of the government. Judge Elwell
expresses thn opinion that the democratic
party will be able to accomplish the legis
lative reforms which he as a friend of the
cause of the workingman has at heart. His
letter is in perfect harmony with the spirit
of the democratic platform which declares
that "labor and capital hare no cause of
antagonism." Judge Elwell will yote for
the democratic candidates nnd all good
democrats will imitate his wise and patri
otio example.
Lewis V. Bogy, senior Senator from Mis
souri, died Thursday morning at his homo in
St, Louis, aged 04 years. Without great
abilities, 3Ir. Bogy had a successful career.
Tlio key to his success may perhaps be found
in the following paper, which he placed in
his mother's hands when, a lad of 19 years,
he left homo to push his way in tho world :
"St. Genevieve. Jan. 10. 1832. On this

The tax-payers of Wayne county at least
a considerable number of them aro in rebel
lion against the building of the new court
house. A meeting was held at Bethany some
time since, when it was declared that "a great
outrage was being perpetrated by tho unaba
ted determination of a set of officials to build,
at an enormous expense, with tho people's
money, a court house, outrivaling in size,
grandeur and collosal expenditure anything of
the kind in tho State of Pennsylvania." Tne
commissioners were also charged with raising
the valuation of property, and making taxes
burdensome and unequal ; and when the peo
ple have inquired about these things they haro
been "insulted and denied the rights of jus
tice." The tax-payers then proceeded to con
demn the action of the commissioners, and
resolved that, when the people applied for an
injunction against tho commissioners, Judgo
Waller, of that district, wrote out his opin
ion before tho argument was completed ; that
to exhibited ill temper, was insulting to his
associates, unworthy of tho position which he
holds and inconsistent with the impartiality
and dignity which should characterize pro
ceedings in a court of justice." Tho Judgo is
further accused of having suggested the ex
pensive plan upon which tho court houso is
being constructed, and tho taxpayers have
lost their confidence in him anyway. If too
many of these tax-payers aro not brought up
and held for contempt of court they will have
convention at Bethany for tho pur-
poso of nominating candidates for county
treasurer and associato judge. Tho convention
will be composed of two delegates, one Re
publican and one Democrat, from each elec
tion district, and the assemblage will givo an

I'nlrnt Ofllco on Fire.
Washington, D. 0., September 21. A flro
broke out shortly beforo noon to-day In the
patent office. It is supposed to havo origl
natcd fiom tho lluo reaching from tho con
servatory. 12:1.1 p. in. There Is nil Immense crowd
on tho streets In thn vicinity of tho patent
ollico building. Tho firemen are working
vlgorously,bavliig succeeded In getting their
hose through tho windows of tho upper
story of the main building ; but In splto of
their efforts, the flames seem to bo making
headway, and while tho wholo of the upper
portion of tho west wing on Ninth street is
being devoured by tho conflagration, tho
flames are also creeping along between tl.o
celling and tbo roof of tho north wing nnd
that of tbo main building facing on ! street.
An immense number of valuable models
have been destroyed. At this timo It Is Im
possible to cstluiato tho amount of tho loss
Secretary Schurz and his assistants nro
nctlvely at work superintending the removal
of files, models and records from the build
ing to places of safety elsewhere. A pliant
of District militia under command of Ma
jor Hanneman is on duty guarding tho cn
tronco to tho main stairway leading to the
model rooms in the centre building, in
which an Immenso number of models yet
remain. Firemen nro in this room, direct
ing their efforts to their protection, but tho
position is regarded ns ono of great danger
and fears are oxprescd that the heat above
will cause the ceiling to full, which would
Inevitably create great destruction to life
aud public property.
Relays of clerks have been formed in the
cast wing leading from tho upper to lower
stories, removing books nnd papers from
places of danger. Tho clerks aro also act
ing as guards for the protection of property.
There is as yet no definite idea as to how tho
fire originated.
Tho flames first appeared in n conservatory
near the roof, Thero was also a largo man
her of rejected models packed in tho attic
above the model room, aud it is believed
that spontaneous combustion took place,
causing tho conflagration. The land office
records are nil stored In rooms two stories
beneath tho fire.
Tho measures taken to save them all will
undoubtedly be successful, and It is not
probable that any valuable papers, except
records that were on file in tbo model room,
will be lost. While there is great excite
ment, tho crowd in the neighborhood are
very orderly.
The Masonic temple is immediately op
posite the burning building, but the wind
bearing in a southwesterly direction it is not
thought to bo iu any danger.
The wind also carries the flames away
from the post office building, which is op
posite tho patent office on the F street side.
12:30 p. m.-Seven fire companies have
arrived from Baltimore, making tho trip iu
about forty minutes.
A portion of the roof on the Seventh
street or east wing will probably bo saved,
and strong hopes are now entertained that
the fire will not extend below the floor of
the model room. The most valuable records
of the patent, land, Indian and pension
offices, ns well as those of the interior de
partment proper, are stored on the first two
floors of the building beneath the model
room, and none of them havo yet been
reached by the fire. The heat was so in
tense atone time that window frames and
awnings of building on G street, just op
posite the conflagration, were ignited, but
the fire was suppressed before making much
progress. The government engine from the
navy yard and another from tho arsenal
aro also at work, with those of this city,
Baltimore and Alexandria, making a total
of ten engines throwing water upon the
burning building.
Secretary Schurz says : "We have lost
the model room, with all its contents,except
a part of tho east wing. Between the second
and third stories there is a fire-proof cement
floor, and the fire will not reach below that.
We believed the whole patent office was
fire-proof, but it seems not. All the origi
nal documents and records are preserved.
Those that are lost are not so important."
The records of the office are safe so far as
can be ascertained at this hour. Tho fire
seems to be fully checked, and is confined
to the north end of the eastern section. It
is estimated that fully two-thirds of the
models have been destroyed.including many
of the most valuable. Another train with
an engine from Baltimore left that city at
1;47 p. m.
The original copy of the declaration of
independence and the relics of George'Wash
ington, which were on exhibition in the ball
of the main building, were saved, as was
also tho Franklin printing press In the same
hall. Siuce the flames have been subdued
late this evening and the officials have had
an opportunity to make a hasty examination
it has been found that uearly all the speci
fications aud original drawings of the patent
office are safe.
JIany of tho clerks of the interior denart-
ment, laud, patent, Indian nnd pension
offices have been ordered on dutv to-nleht
preparatory to assorting the papers and dry
ing all wlilcu have been damaged by wa
ter. It is said that arrangements are already in
progress for renting a portion of the Corcor

Pennsylvania avenue aud Fifteenth street,
in which the work of tho department will be
resumed and the records restored as far as
None of the land office records hare been
destroyed by fire but many of them are
seriously damaged by water and it will take
some time to restore them.
It is said an immense amount of litiga
tion will grow out of tho disaster to-day,
as tho law In regard to specifications and
models has not been complied with until
a few years past and many models cannot
therefore bo reproduced accurately. The
damago to the building is variously estimated
Irom f auu.uuu to ouu,UU0, while that grow

other valuables belonging to tho patent of

A Heavy Over-issue of Stock in tlio West
Philadelphia Passenger Hallway
Company Detected.
A great excitement was caused in business
circles on Saturday by tho report that tho
stock of tho West Philadelphia Passenger
Railway Company had been fraudulently
over-issued to a largo nmouut, and that Mr.
John S. Morton, tho President of tho Com
pany, and also tho President of tho Interna
tional Exhibition Company, was bno of thoso
mainly responsible for the wrong. The stock
of tho company consists of 8000 shares, the
par valuo of which is $50 a share, and has
long been considered a first-class sccurity,and
has been sold as high as $190 a share, all re
cent sales being at or about $150. On Satur
day, after tho exposure of tho over-issue,
thero was a great fall in the prico, and at 3
o'clock in the afternoon, only $00 per sharo
was offered for it.
Tho discovery of the fraud was mado by Sir.
Samuel Baugh ono of tho Directors of the
Company, who has since been elected Presi
dent. Mr. Baugh called at a prominent bro
ker's office on Tliird street on Monday last,
where ho was shown somo of tho stock of the
Railway Company which had been deposited
there as collateral security for a loan negotia
ted by Mr. Morton. His suspicions wero
aroused, and on Tuesday he called again at
the broker's office and asked to bo allowed to
cxamino the certificates. His request was at
onco granted, and ho found that tho stock
was regularly issued, signed by John S. Jlor
ton, President ; B. F. Stokes, Secietary, and
Samuel P. Huhn, Treasurer, and sealed with
tho seal of tho compauy. The numbers of the
certificates, however, seemed to Mr. Baugh
to be wrong,and on Wednesday he, in compa
ny with another largo stoek-holder, visited
the office in West Philadelphia, whero they
demanded to bo allowed to examine tho books
of tho Company. Mr. Morton and Mr. Huhn
wero absent, and Mr. S sokes, the secretary,
refused to show them tho books. On Thurs
day a special meeting of the Board of Direc
tors was called and tho full exposuro mado to
them. On Friday Mr. Morton resigned his
position of President, and Mr. Samuel Baugh
was elected in his place. Mr. W. J. Swain
was also elected treasurer, iu place of Samuel
P. Huhn and Mr. Wm. 31. Wright, secreta
ry, in place of Mr. B. F. Stokes. Experts
were also put at work to make a thorough ex
amination of tho books and accounts of the
Company, and this work is not yet conclu
ded. According to tho statement of Mr. Mor
ton himself, confirmed by the best information
obtainable from other sources, there have
been between ten and eleven thousand shares
of stock issued irregularly by Messrs. Morton,
lluliu, and otokes. This stock has been hy
pothecated at an averago rate of $100 a share,
and making a total defalcation of about ono
million dollars. Mr. Slorton nckuowlcdgos
:'reely tho fault ho has committed and has fur
nished the new president of tho company with
what ho btatcstobo an accurato list of tho
folso certificates outstanding and in whoso
hands they now are.
Ho states that the matter had been going
on tinco 1870, at which time he -suffered
heavy losses in Reading Railroad stock, and
ever since he has boen trying to carry tho
loss and restoro himself. He went into sev
eral enterprises hoping that by them ho would
be ablo to recover tho amounts ha bad lost
and thus make all things right. His ventures
proved failures, howerer,and things weuton
from bad to worse, until tho final exposure.
To a ledger representative he said that ho
had no excusoto make, he frcelyacknowledg
(d his error, and only claimed that ho had no
evil intentions when ho commenced his irreg
ularities, his desire being simply to savo him
self and thoso who wero involved with him,
and ho declares that he did not handlo nearly
all tho money realized, but that Messrs. Stokes
and Huhn are also deeply involved.
Mr. John C. Bullit, who is actiug us coun
sel for somo of tlio heaviest stockholders of
the road, stated yesterday that as far as ho
had been ablo to ascertain, the over-issue
amounted to about eleven thousand shares,
which was distributed around as collateral
among individuals and Institutions in com
parativcly small amounts. Tho stock having
been issued by tho authorized officers of the
company, and under the seal of tho corpora
tion, ho said it was undoubtedly binding on
tho company, and tlio holders of i( aro bona-
fide stockholders In tho company. Ho thought
however, that tho company has tho right to
redeem it at the sum at which it had been
pledged as collateral.
Mr. Morton on Friday sent in his resigna
tion as President of the Exhibition Compa
ny, and Mr. Henry D, Moore is acti ug Pro

Damning 'Jestimonyof Adolph StrepoULi.
Nor.ntsTowN, Sept. 22. During tho jtnt

about, in this vicinity, except tho trial of
Hcinrieh Wahlcn for the murder of Mnx Hu
go Hoehnc, during tho Centennial Exhibition
and which tragedy is known throughout tho
country ns "tlio Elm Station murder."
Tho trial of Wahlen for tho murder has
now consumed cloven days' time, nud ns tho
case progresses tho grip of tho law hns slow
ly, but surely tightened itself about tho per
son of tho prisoner, nnd as the links in tho
chain of cvidenco against him wero being
closely rivitcd together tho popular interest
On Wednesday tho all-important witness,
Adolph Strepolski, was called to tho stand,
After giving a personal account of himself,
and how ho first met Wahlcn, ho gradually
eamo down to tho day of tho murder, when
ho gavo tho following thrilling testimony:
After relating about meeting Hochno and
Wahlcn, (tho latter being known to witness
only by tho namo of Keller,) and then
describing how ho went out with them on
tho Pennsylvania Railroad track, ho said:
"Keller and Hochno gavo mo a diink of
whiskey, nnd coaxed me to go along with
them ; I went n littlo further and they coaxed
mo along ; 1 went with them ; wo stopped
two or thrco times, nud Keller was "boss;"
ho treated two or threo times afterward ; it
was nearly six o'clock when wo got to a Cnth
olij Institute, whero wo got something to cat;
I didn't know tho place, but Keller did ; when
we eamo out wo had another drink of whis
key, and sat down about three quarters of an
hour, eating our bread and butter,which was
given us at the institute ; it was dark, and
after wo got on tho hill young Hochno could
scarcely stand, but wo walked on a littlo far
ther to tho station near where ho was killed;
Keller coaxed him to go up tho bank to tak
n rest, but wo went up tlio bank a littlo high
er, and Fat there thrco quarters of an hour ;
Keller gavo us another drink of whisky when
wo wero sitting there; after that we nil go t
up and wanted to go away ; a train passed
and Keller said. "Let it pass let us all put
our heads down whero nobody can see us ;"
as the light of tho tiain passed I heard the
young man "holler," and I looked around and
Keller hit him again aud ho fell over toward
me ; I would of ourso liked to havo helped
the young man, and when I wanted to do so
Keller took tho hammer and wanted to striko
mo ; tho hammer slipped out of his hand and
fell to tho ground ; ho kicked mo and I lost
my breath, and after that time he "went af
ter" Hochno again, and ho fell twice ; Kclier
struck him several times on tho back aud
once in tho face ; after that ho took the clothes
off him, turned him around nnd robbed his
pockets ; Keller then said to tho dead man,
"You've got enough ;" I was sitting down
half dead ; after that ho came up to mo and
said I should help him ; I said "I can't bo
causo you kicked mo ;" ho said, "You got to
do it ; if you don't I will play tho barao with
you as I did with him ;" then when he saw
that I could not lift, tho body ho wanted me
to help him carry it ; it was too heavy for
me ; then ho took it by tho neck nnd pulled
it himself; ho told mo to tako tho clothes
and then wo wont to another side ; then I
went down tho hill ; I throw tho clothes to
him and cleared out ; I fell down tho hill and
ho fell over mo ; ho made mo tako the clothes
again, and went after mo to another placo
whero tho water runs down a step ; wo got
them in a holo and left them there ; ho said
to me : "If you say anything, I nui as good
as you ; you will get into tho eamo scrape
with mo ; ho then went back and got tha
package which was taken out of tho trunk ;
it was mado up in a strap, and ho mado mo
tako it to whero tho clothes wero : wo staved
at that hole about three quarters of an hour ;
after that a man came past with a light, and
Keller made mo go up higher whero tho
ground was level ; tho next morning about
half past thrco o'clock I tried to get off ; ho
watched mo and didn tslecp; ho said : "You
had better stay hero ; you can't get off; to
morrow you aro in my hands ;" I told him I
would not bo in his hands very long; at three
o'clock wo went to anotiier place, and I help
dd him to bury that man ; it was after six
o'clock; it was very light, when wo could see
tho blood thero and everything ; wo went
down to a cross road, wo washed our pants ;
alter that wo went into a houso aud called
for breakfast.
Witness said Wahlen struck noehno with
a steel hammer belonging to him (witness.)
and he identified tho hammer in court.
On cross-examination, witness said ho
had tho hammer six or seven years. (Tho
hammer was shown, and identified by tho
witness.) "When young Hoehno was struck
ho hollered, 'Raubcr I rauberl raubor 1' "
said tho witness. As tho witness, in loud
tones, imitated tho tremulous and affrighted
accents of young Hoehnc, every person in
the court room was vuibly affected. "Keller
took young Hoelmo'a right hand and led him
up the bank to whero ho was killed," said
tho witness, and after tho murder Keller said
to him : "You are got enough." Tho man
ner in which tho body was stripped of its
clothiu? was minutely described by tho wit
ness, and also tho pawning of young Hoehno's
clothes by Wahlcn, who gavo tho namo of
Keller, and was known as such by tho wit
ness. Ho said that he missed tho hammer
with which tho fatal blows were struck in
Franklin. Square, and did not seo it until af
ter tho murder. Witness said Keller (Wah
lcn) gavo him four or fivo drinks on tho eve
ning of tho murder.
Nearly all day Thursday was taken up by
tho counsel for Wahlen in the cross-examination
of Strcpolski ; but his original testimony
was not shaken In any material points.
The Commonwealth closed ou Thursday
morning, and the counsel for tho defense be
gan examining witnesses, but no testimony
calculated to shako tho case of tho prosecu
tion has been elicited.
An oriental traveller describes this busy
Bcene,witne8sed on historic shores : "Our steamer
landed on a beach which was the' port of An
tioch, where the disciples were first called
Christians, Thero was no town at the water's
edge, no people, no wharf. The passengers and
the merchandise were put ashore In lighters,
which ran up into )ie sand. A troop of cam
els, with their drivers, lay on the beacii, ready
to transfer the goods into tile Interior. Among
the articles landed were boxes marked 'Dr. J.
C. Ayer & Co. Lowell, Mass., U. S. A.,' show
ing that they contained medicines and whence
(hey came. Theeo with other goods were hois
ted on the bucks of camels, for transportation to
Antioch. Thus the skill of the West sends
back its remedies to heal tho maladies of popu
lations that inhabit thoso castera shores,whence
oar spiritual manna came." )Yidar (Yt
The Russian Court invited Dr. Ayer and his
family to the duke's wedding In tho Royal Pal
ace, This distinction was awarded him not on
ly because lie was an American, but also be
cause ids name as a physician had become fa
vorably known in Ruaeia on its passage round
