DIUEST OP ELECTION LAWS.
Polls open at 7 a. m, and dote at 7 . in.
WHO CAN VOTE.
Every male citizen twenty-ono years of age
possessing the following qualifications shall be
entitled to vote at all elections.
1. Be shall have been a citizen of the
United States ono month,
2. He shall hare resided in the State ono
year ; or, if previously having been a quali
fied elector or native bora citizen thereof,
and shall have removed therefrom and re
turned, then he shall have resided therein sis
months immediately preceding tho election.
3. He shall havo resided in the district
wherein ho intend to vote two months im
mediately preceding tho election, instead
of ten days as-formerly.
4. If twenty-ono years of ago or upward,
ho shall have paid, within two years, a State
or county tax, which fhall have been assessed
at least two months previous to the election,
and paid at least ono month previous to the
5. Foreign born citizens must havo been
naturalized at least one month before the
election, and must conform to the require
ments contained in section 4, preceding.
The election will be held on "tho Tuosday
next following , the first Monday of Novem
ber," being this year tho Cth day of tho
Saturday, October C, is the last day for se
curing naturalization papers.
Saturday, October 6th, is the last day on
which taxes can bo paid in legal timo to
The above datec ehould be carefully remem
bered and acted on by all voters.
Col. Wilson, in order U remind the peo
ple of Pennsylvania that the Republican
organization has not utterly disbanded, ha
permitted Bob Maclcey to write a circular
to the faithful under his name as chairman.
It starts out by saying that the Democrats
havo "apparently" caried Ohio. -Yes, that
is apparent by 23,000 majority. It also
claims credit for the Republican party that
under its administration the State debt has
been largely reduced. Yes, but it began un
der Democratic administration, aud has pro
ceeded under laws established by Democrats.
The reduction would have been double but
for Radical thefts and extravagance. Again
it is claimed that "at this day not a dollar
of State taxes -is levied upon the real estate
iu the Commonwealth,"
This is untrue. The Board of Troperty
assess each county for its share of revenue,
and where it is not realized from other sour
ces the tax falls upon the fund realized by
the County from taxing real estate.
Iu these latter days people are not to be
hood winked by such bald assertions, and
tax-payers are especially becoming well iu
formed as to what they pay, and where it
goes. to. They want honest taxation, econo
my, and strict accountability.
TUK BEGINNING OF THE END.
With therestoration of Dcmocratio suprera
acy in the South, there began not only an
era of peace and prosperity but the logical
consequence of the punishment of the tuievcs
and plunderers, who, upheld by i cdcral au-
thority, had ruthlessly robbed the people of
tbat section, bomo weak minded orgaus
who do not understand the "new departure,
having been deprived of the ordinary grist
to the "outrage will," now faintly try to stop
justice by crying political persecution. On
this score they may as well bo relieved. Tak
South Carolina for instance. Two of U State
treasurers, a whito one and a black one are in
jail at Columbia awaiting trial for fraud.
Parker, it is said, will turn State's cvidenco,
nd expose liia confederates in villainy. Tho
trial comnieuccs next week. Judge Towns
end, a Ilepublicflii, will preside, and tho jury
panel is made up of 19 negroes and 17 whites
16 Democrats and 21 Repulicaus.
In Louisiana the tame is true. If it docs
prove that Hayes was fraudulently installed
by means of a corrupt Returning BoardTruth
will be vindicated, aud tho Republican party
mutt wear the badge of Fiaud thtougboll
In lSCStbe Republicans carried Ohio by
one hundred thousand majority.

A MECIOUS SHYSTER,
Among tho u.clci satellites that hang
around tho cnpltolnt Uarrlsburg h (.no John
Dolnney, by courtesy called the Governor's
Mesenger. The poltlnn I n mero sinccuro
nnd could Milly bo filled by n boy. Hut It
would seem that occasionally the Governor
has dirty work to dn, and after n thorough
search for a fit tool ho selected ono John
Delaney,who claims to carry tho Irish Cath
olio vote in his hands, nnd boasts of his in
fluence among the"Molllc Maguircs." Tho
duties of his office- are not so laborious as to
prevent Mm from traveling through thorituct
each fall on free passes for tho laudable pur
peso of buying up his "co-rellglouists" to
support their ancient enemies, the llepubll
cans. This year he has struck iu boldly at
Pittsburg, Luzerne, Schuylkill, nnd else'
where, not on public business, for which he
is paid, but to buy up nil tho purchasable
material he cau for the Republican ticket
Hit first effort was among the Ancient Order
of Hibernians at Pittsburg, and tho Pitts
burg Tdegraph, a strong Republican paper,
speaking of it, boastlngly says :
"Hut a creator defection than the one led
by Foley, Larkin ct ni.hasjust been brought
to light, nnd II the movement now projected
is carried out according to tho programme
it cannot fail to result disastrously to jNoyes
nnd defeat him beyond peradventure. This
is the revolt of tho Ancient Order of Hibern
ians in n bodv. The statement that this or
der would opposo Noyes having been made
in certain quarters, aituougu not currently
vn nf Thr. Ttlearanh
this morning called on State Delegate James
.Moral), tuo head ol tne A. u. n. ot i'enti
svlvanla. to learn the facts respecting this
new source of alarm and danger to the Dem
ocratic applicant for tuo money bags ol tuo
Treasury. Mr. Moran stated that In nil
probability tho entire strength of tho Hi
bernians in Alleghanev county would bo
diverted from Noyes. Tho order numbered
2,500 in this county, of which number about
IfiW were voters."
It then adds:
"From other Bources it is learned that Air.
J. D. Delnney, of Luzerne county who holds
n position in one of the departments at Har
risburg, was in the city yesterday for the
purpose of putting the matter in regard to
Noyes' candidacy properly before the lead
ers and influential members of the order.
With what success his mission wns crowned
has not been nscertained, but, judging from
tlw expressions of Mr. Mnrnn, thero will bo
a vigorous and determined opposition on the
part of the Order to Mr. Noyes, with n pro
bability that their entire voting membership
will be transferred to support of Hart. No
matter how much tho Democratic papers
may seek to ignore the fact, it is patent to
nil who are posted, that Noyes' campaign In
this "neck of timber" is a very bad way."
This is not Delaney's first dirty mission,
at the behest of his superiors in office. In
1875 he came to the authrac'to coal regions
to bribe "Molllie Maguires to Bupport his
principal, Uartranft. On this point we have
not only the declaration of Frank Gowen,
but the sworn testimony of John J. Slattery
in the trial .of Jellow Jack Donahue. If
Slattery's testimony was sufficient to convict
Donohtie and others, it is equally as stiong
against Uartranft and his tools. Slattery on
the trial of Donahue for the murder of Pow
ell, testified as follows :
"That he (Slattery) and Jack Kehoe
were, on the part of the 'Mollies,' parties
"to the contract for the purchasof the'Molly'
"vote for Governor Uartranft ; that the per
sons with whom they made the contract
were two republicans of influence and also
"a professed democrat who was opposing the
"election of Judge Pershing ; that the con
sideration was a certain amount of money
"in hand paid, and a certain amount con
tingent on results, and it was understood
"in the order that pardons were to be grant
ed the commissioners and other criminals ;
"that he had himself arranged for the pur-
'chase of the'Molly vote in Luzerne county,
"and that the money was carried there ore
''that purpose by a person from Ifarrisburg
'a messenger in the executive department, one
'John O. Delaney." Slattery also testified
to the fact that a large amount of money was
to have been sent to Pittsburg to purchase
the "order" there.
As a further illustration we may add that
In 1872, when Mr. Buckalew was a candi
date for Governor, we made a trip through
the anthracite coal flelds,and conversed with
the leaders among the worklngmen. They
were unanimously in favor of Mr. Buckalew,
not only because Mr. Bchell, their candidate
had withdrawn. in his favor, but because of
his steady advocacy of their material
interests. But ten days before the
election those leaders proved treach
erous. Many of them had been "in
terviewed "by Republican agents, and many
more hastened to Uarrisburg to consult with
Republican officials. Pardons for some men
were freely promised, and alterwards grant
ed. Other so-called leaders were bribed at
so much a head, and men of the Delaney
stamp were the go-betweens. It remains to
be seen whether this game can 'succeed this
The Indian have been cheated so often
by Indian traders and agents, that they have
lost all faith in Radical treaties, promises,
or honesty,. A last attempt has been made
by an expensive commission to invite them
back, "will you walk into my parlor Bays

associates prefer to be let alone.
A despatch to the Chicago limes, dated
Fort Walsh, British Territory, the 17th inst.,
says the Commissioners sent by our Govern
ment to treat with them have met him and
utterly failed to.obtain any terms of settle

the part of the Americansand places no trust

Notslneo Avondale has there been such a
terrible mining disaster na that which occurr
ed at High Bl.intyro, Scotland, on Monday
last. On that uiornlng 233 men descended
iulo tho mini's, and about nino o'clock an ex
plosion of coal gas took placo. b'our of tho
miners wero discovered nlivo nbout 11 o'clock,
but in so exhausted n condition that ono of
them died before morning, and tho ensa of
nnotlicr is thought to bo hopeless. Mining
experts express tho opinion that nil men re
maining in tho pits havo perished, but even
if they nro nlivo no rcscuo party can reach
them iu less than eight or tcu days. Tho
work of bringing up tho dead was lo'timcd
Tuesday morning. Tho bodies found tiro
feariully mangled, showing that the explosion
was of terrible violence.
Tho lofs of life by tho explosion at High
Blautyro which from present appearances
will reach tho appalling total of 229 is prob
ably tho greatest tint has ever resulted from
u similar accident. By tho great explosion of
fire damp in tho Felling colliery, near New
castle, Kuglund, in May, 1812, which led to
tho invention of the safety Limp by Sir Hum
phrey Davy, only 02 lives wero lost. In com
paratively recent times, much greater loss of
life has resulted from colliery explosions, not
withstanding all tho appliances which expe
licnco and scienco havo brought Into vogue.
Two of tho most disastrous explosions on rec
ord were that in tho Luudhill mine on Eng
land, in 185", by which 180 lives were lost,
and that in tho Avoud.ilo mine, in this State,
in 18C9; which was attended with a loss of
110 lives nltogcthtr. This last named acci
dent, which was wo believe, tho most disas
trous of tho kind that ever occurred in this
country, took placo on September G, 1809. A
firo broke out in a fluo in the bottom of the
Steuben shaft in tho Avondalo mine, at Plym
outh, Luzcrno county, which soon communi
cated to tho coal breaker nnd outbuildings
covering the mouth of tho shaft. A portion
of tho buildings then fell into tho shaft, chok
ing it up so that tho miners imprisoned bo
low could not escape nor obtain any air. By
this accident 108 men and boys were suffocat
ed, and two persons who wcut down into tho
mine to rescue tho victims also loU their
lives. In 1802, by n fall of a portion of the
shaft of tho Hartley colliery, in England, 202
persons wero killed. There havo licen several
mine disasters this year, which havo resulted
in serious loss of life. By a firo in the Stone-
lill colliery, near Bolton, England, on the
23d of January last, IS men nud boys were
suffealed. An explosion occurred on Febru
ary 14 last in a coal tnnio at Graissesac
department of Hcrault, Franco, by which 55
livs were lost On March 8 last, an explos
ion took placo in tho Worcester colliery, near
Swansea, Wales, whicli resulted iu tho loss
of 18 lives.

its merits nor Indicato nil tho details in which
it is superior to anything of the kind yet seen
in this part of the country. But we must sny a
word about ono very valuable feat ure. Tho
colored chronological charts, which show nt a
glance what cannot bo gleaned from the text
of any history the men nnd events whioh
were contemporaneous, make a new nnd valan
featuro of distinguished merit nnd peculiar to
this work. More than fifty topographical dia
grams show tho vicinity of every battle and im
portant event ; and tho maps which aro not
not only geographical hut civil and historical
show tho political divisions of tho country from
time to time, with comprehensive indices of
our territorial growth.
It is as neat a volumo in its physical propor
tions, general mako up and illustrations as one
would wish to see. Its publishers, (Messrs.
ones Brothers & Co., of Philadelphia, Cincin
nati nnd Chicago,) havo spared neither pains
nor expense to render it acceptable to both
eye and mind, and wo learn they aro reaping n
large reward for their enterprise and forethought
in its large sales. If our citizens look into tho
merits of this History wo have no doubt bat
that the sales will bo still further accelerated.
Mr. Have's First Message.
The President's message, after referring
to the failure of the late Congress to pats
tho Army Appropriation bill, and speaking
f the army as a branoh of the Government
authorised by existing statutes, and of the
obligation to maintain it in full force, says
that in the nbsenco of a specific appropria
tion, the Government was unauthorized to
make the necessary expenditures. The ab
sence ol this authority Is regarded as tit
ground for the assembling of Congress in
extra session. The message asks that the
appropriation be made upon the basis of
on army of 25,0000 men, and that the con-
ideration of all questions of the increase or
decrease or modification of the personnel ad
ministration iu either branch of the milita
ry service be postponed until some future
time. The message then sets forth that tho
amount considered necessary by the War
Department for this purpose, according to
estimates, is 32,43G,7C4. Some reasons aro
then given lor the various estimates which
accompany tho message, Btich as the items
for Library of Congress, for binding news
paper Jilts, etc., 22,800 ; for adjudicating
cases under the Court of Claims.tl 206,453 ;
for divers miscellaneous deficiencies in the
Treasury Department, $273,891 ; for print-
ng stamps in tho Post-office Department,
$700,000; for tho deficiency of the navy pay
$2,003,801, and for contingent expenses of
United States Courts, $262,6S5. Tho Presi
dent also calls attention to the great benefits
to accrue to the Industrial and manufacture
ng interests of the United States, by a prop
er representation of American industries at
the Exposition at Paris, to be opened in
May, 1878. He alludes to the receipt of
communications from our diplomatic rep
resentatives in the various countries of Eu
rope, which have expressed a determina
tion to participate, and recommended a plan
somewhat similar to that adopted by Con
gress for representational Vienna in 1873.
The message refers to the amount of $200,
000 as the sum appropriated for that occa
sion. The President closes his message by
alluding to the invitation sent to this
Government to appoint representatives to
the International Prison Congress to be held
next year, at Stockholm, and adds that these
measures, in the interests of tho prevention
of crime, are regarded as highly satisfactory
n the post. lie recommends that a suita
ble appropriation be made, so tbat Ihe Invi
tation may be accepted, and representatives
of the United States be sent to participate
in their deliberatit ns.
The Pittsburg Itlots The Attachments
Against State Officers Granted.
In the criminal coun last Baturday Judge
Kirkpatrick rendered a decision on the up-
pllcatiou of the grand jury lor attachments
for Governor Uartranft, Secretary Quay,
Adjutant General Latta, Major Norris and
It will bo remembered that Attorney Gen
eral Lear, in his argument in opposition to
the motion, took the position that the court
had no authority to compel the attendance
of the officials named in the eubpcoua, and
tbo chief law officer of the state withdrew
the application for the attachments. Judge
Kirkpatrick granted the writs. It is under
stood that Attorney General Lear will take
the case to the supreme court on Monday,
with the view o'f obtaining an immediate

A Town Swept by Ure.
St. John, N. B., October 20,-Ooe of the
most terrible disasters which boa ever be
fallen a Buburbau town occurred this morn
lng at a quarter to three o'clock in the town
of Portland, a sjburd of this city. Upwards
of five hundred and fifty families, number
ing 2,300 persons, wero literally thrown
homeless and penniless upon the charity of
the benevolent. Two hundred and fifty
wooden houses and email shops and sheds
were burned. The district was almost en
tirely covered with wooden building, bar
lng, in fact, but opt brick structure in it.
The loss amounts to upward oi 1300,000,
and the insurance companies bold riska to
the value of $80,000 only.
Dn. BII.AS K. GHErARD.
In Troy, Bradford county, Ta., on tho 12th of
Octolxrl877, Dr. Silas E. Shopard, nged
Dr. Shepard wns of a Now England fam
ily of great prominence, being a lineal de
scendant of Thomas Shepard, for many years
pastor of tho Independent or Congregational
Church of Cambridge, Mass , and an author
of considerable celebrity in his day,
Thomas Shepard tho progenitor of the
American Shepard family, whose father's
name was William, was born in Northamp
tonshire, England, in 1GQ1, Ho was n grad
uate ol Cambridge, England, and became a
Puritan clergyman. Sleeting with persecu
tion and oppression In England, ho came to
this country in 1633. His brother Samuel,
who camo over with him, was also a Puil
tan clergymen, and left tho old country for
tho samo cause. Thomas Shepard was set
tled as pastor of the church at Cambridge
Massachusetts, which placo ho retained un
til the time of his death. In a publication
of the Historical Society of the stato of
Massachusetts, we find the following notice
of Thomas Shepard, and of the Shepard lam
ily: Shepard remained pastor of the church nt
Cambridge till his death, August 1649,in the
44th year of his ago. Ho is described as a
poor, weak, pale complected man. Edward
Johnson speaks of him as that gracious,
sweet, heavenly, minded, and soul ravishing
minister, Mr Shepard and Fuller, classes
him among tho learned writers f Emanuel
College's. After the death of his second
wife, lift married a third, Margarett Boradell
by whom he had one son, Jeremiah, who
became the minister of Lynn, October 6,
1680. After his death, she married his suc
cessor in tho church at Cambride, tho Rev.
Jonathan Mitchell, Shepar I's eldest son,
Thomas was ordained pastor of tho church
at Charlestown, April 13, 1659, in which
place he was succeeded by his bou, Thomas,
May 0, 1680. Samuel as hasalready been
stated was settled in tho ministry at
Rowley, Nov. 15, 1665. Anna, tho daughter
of the first Thomas Shepard of Charlestown,
was married in 1682 to Daniel Quincy. They
had one son, John Quincy, born July 21,
1689, whoso daughter Elizabeth married
William Smith, the minister of Weymouth ;
and his daughter Abigail married the first
President Adams, and was the mother ot
John Quincy Adams, who is thus a descen
dant, in tho sixth generation, from Thomas
Shepard of Cambridge."
Dr. Shephard formerly resided in Madi
sin township, Columbia county, between Ey-
er'H Grovo and Jerscytown, and about one
mile from tho former place, whcrclthcre is
still etandiug a framo house crcotcd by hiin.
Ho married Nancy Lake, a sister of James
Lako.of Espy,by whom ho had thrco children,
ono son and two daughters. Ho leaves a
widow and two daughters to mourn his loss,
Iris son J. M. Shepard, having died iu 1853,
Iliseldcst daughter Mrs. Catharino Harvey,
resides in Williamsport, and his youngest
daughter, Mrs. Alma W. Kingsly resides in
New York city.
While residing in Columbia county, Dr,
Shepard was pastor of tho Madison Baptist
Church, many of tho first members of whi?h
wero received into tho church under his mm
istrations, some of of which still survive. Ho
also preached extensively throughout tho
county of Columbia, which then embraced
what is now Montour county, and also in ad
joining counties. A writer in the Montour
American, of May 25, 1876, in giving ''Ran
dom Recollections of Danville as it was Half
a Century Since" mentions the fact that Dr.
Shepard preached thero occasionally, and
add3 : "Ho was an eloquent and popular di
It is perhaps about fifty years sinco Dr.
Shepard removed from Columbia to Bradford
co., which has been his residence ever since,
except about four years, during whicli time ho
resided at Auburn, N. Y., although ho has
traveled aud preached extensively in many
parts of the United States, and British Pro
vinces, sometimes having charge of church
es forsoveral years at a time, but still retain
ing his residence at Troy, Pa.
Dr. Shepard was a man of great ability as a
publio speaker, of wonderful critical and log
ical acoumcn, and of extensive learning, es
pecially in tho languages. It is said that he
could readily read fourtrcn different langua
ges Ho was at ono timo President of a College
in Ohio Hiram Collogo, I believe Ho was
also in tha employ of the American Bible Un
ion for several years, in miking the revised
English translation of the Now Testament,
and was held in great osteon by tho Board,
He translated for tho Bible Union, tho Letter
to tho Phillipians, and assisted in the trans
lation of other parts of tho New Testament,
besides being employed to aid in tho final
revision of tbo wholo work, In which he
made over three thousand corrections ; many
of them however being corrections in orthog
raphy and punjtuation; but many others con
sisted in the selection of English words and
phrases better adapted to express the nicer
shades of thought in tho or ginal.
As a preacher, Dr. Shopard has been en
gaged for tho lost fifty yoars in an effort to re
store the faith and practice and ohuroh of
primitivo Christianity. Ho behovod that what
passes under the name of Christianity iu our
day, both among Romamtts and Protestants,
is a mixture of Christianity, Judaism, pagan
religion, pagan philosophy and modern hu
man inventions, and is really an apoetaoy from
the pure Christianity of apostolio timos.
Whilft recognizing and appreciating tho great
good achieved by Luther, Calvin, Wesley and
others in their attempts to reform various
abuses, he claimed that something was needed
mora radical than a mero reformation, to wit,
a restoration of Christianity as it was in tho
beginning ; an abandonment of everything of
human origin in religious matters, and a re
turn to tho simpio teaching, faith, practice
and church of the apostolia ago.
Tho attempt to eliminalo from modorn re
ligious systems all humanisms is no easy task,
and to induce men to abandon long-cherished
habits of thought, feeling aud action oven
when thobO habitudes aro wholly unauthorized
by tho word of God is etill more difficult.
Yet Dr. Shepard braved these difficu!lies,and
by force of Scriptural facts and arguments
and by a liberal exhibition of tho spirit of
Christ, he bod the satisfaction of seeing bis
efforts crowned with a largo measure of euo-0O.-B.
Fifty years ago those who wero willing
to abandon every human tyttem of religion
nod ail human devices in religious matters,
and bo governed exclusively by the authority
of Christ, wero few and far botwoen. Now
thero are half a million of them in tho United
States uloue, and many thousand more in
other parts of tho world. Then Dr, Shepard'a
fullow-laborcrs in tho great work he had un
dertaken wero few in number and many of
tbcin wero comparatively illiterate Now
there are many thousands of highly educated
minister i ready to putli forwaid the good
work with untiring energy. Then bia breth
ren wera without literary institutions ef einl
sence. Now they are ably conducting a Urge
number of the bast Atademiea, collage tad
universitiea t Junenea.
And these are not the only good results of
tho labors of Dr. Shepard and Ills coadjutors.
Tho principles advocated by them havo, in n
greater or less degree, permeated nil ranks of
religious society Many dogmas mid obser
vances formerly regarded as sacred havo ei
ther becomo wholly obsolcto or nro retained
with much less tenacity. Tho authority of
Christ is much more generally respected, nnd
tho authority of nicti correspondingly lessened.
Formerly tho word of God was mado to bend
to tho human creed. Now,in many instances,
tho human creed is abandoned altogether ; in
others, it is mado to bend into at least greater
conformity to tho Scriptures.
Paying Off HuilJing Association Mortgages.
There aro to-day hundreds of men through
out this nnd adjoining counties who havo loans
from buildiug associations mado when both
work and funds were plcntier than now, who
find it almost, if not quito impossible to keep
up their monthly payments. Tho writer is
cognizant of thce facts, for he has had near
ly ten years experience as an officer of ono of
theso societies, and daily meets with men who
are at a loss what to do tinder such circum
stances. Tho law rclativo to theso associa
tions is that when a member is in arrears fur
dues and Interest tho officers nro to foreoloso
Iho mortgage and proceed to collect the in
debtedness. A man out of employment, or
with wagos insufficient to meet the payments
soon has tho six months to slip by, when tho
law is put into operation, too often without
an attempt on the part of thoo who might
save for him the homo for which ho had to
long and arduously labored. Tho fault lies
not in tho association, but iu tho neglect of
the member to seek ndvico from proper par
tics and act upon it when tendon d. Wo havo
learned that tho better policy in bticli eves is
lor the member ol tho association to with
draw from tho society, repaying his loan will:
tho withdrawal valuo nf his shares and the
ptoccods of n losier loan from somo individ
ual. This else is to bo undorsto id :
Jim Brown som i years ag built n houso
that cost him upwards of $2,000. This prop
erty ho mortgaged for S2,000ta a building
and loan nssociition, expecting to pay $20 a
mouth until tho shares of tho association be
camo worth $200 c.icli, thus balancing his in
debtedness. But his business was less pro
porous or his wage.) wero reduce! and ho finds
$20 a month too largo a sum for him to raise.
In tne meantime tho association has run eight
years, and in n few yo.ira at mo't is expect
ed to bo out of itabt. But tho evil bout camo
upon him and hu must look about for a new
nvenue. His shares aro now worth in liqui
dation of his mortgages from $140 to $150
each let us say $1,450 in round 1'u'uros. Ho
needs but $550 to satisfy the S2,0f)0, nnd to
lift tho heavy monthly burden of $20 from
his shoulders. Hii property is a sufficient
security fjr nny such sum, nnd ns money is
sccKing s-ato investments, lio cin hivo no
troublo to make tho new loan, when his an
nual interest will bo los than $30. It is truo
mat it miy cost nun icsii no can keep in
tho as-iociatioii until it "runs out," but that is
a matter that timo alono cm decide. . Fiom
tho number nf properties tlrc-o n-8ciations
are c unpolled to take it is a difficult matter
to tell how long thoy will need to leach the
valuo the law ostablishoi for th-'ir shares.
Our advice, and it is given after mature con
sidertation, is for all parties who cannot keel
up their monthly payments lo withdraw upon
the pun wo have suggested above, lie.
The Heading Riots.
At Reading, Pa., on Tuesday last cases of
37 persons indicted for rioting, on Monday
