THE PRISONERS' ASSOCIATION'.
One of tho most interesting events at the
Wvoinine Centennial was the meeting at
Wilkcsbarre on July 2d of the National Un
ion of tho'Survirors of AnJersonville and olh-
er Southern military prisons. They met in a
large tent furnished by thoQ. A. It. Numer
ous eloquent addresses were made. Among
the speakers known to our readers were Col
Hoyt, Judge Dana and C. B. Brockway.
The nation pay for an army of 25,000
officers and men. but somehow or another
they can never be found except in a politi
cal emergency. Just now we are having
our annual Indian war. We are not sur
prised to learn that Col. S perry had his com
Band of fifty men cut to pieces near Uma
till, and that only seven men escaped, nor
that Gen. Howard was far behind with his
usual cherry dispatches. But the fact is our
soldiers are needed on the frontier, and no
where else. Send these 25,000 men there,
and if they cannot whip the savages, they
can at least learn the art of war.
THE TRUTH ABOUT IT.
Andy Dill, our nominee for Governor has
been accused by the opposition of being a
"corporation man." A thorough examina
tion of his Legislative record in both Senate
and House, fails to bear out the assertion
in a single instance Not only that, but as a
lawyer he never asked or received a dollar
from a railroad company.
It is different with CoL Iloyt. His law
practice comes vainly from corporations, and
we know of do instance wliero he lias ever
been retained against ono of them, but
do know of many cases where he has de
fended them. This he had a right to do, and
80 had Senator Dill ; but Republican organs
had better ease up on the cry of "corporation
THE MILK IN THE COCOAXUT.
Some weeks ago wo did the "Nationals"
the favor to print their local ticketlas we sup
posed it would be fixed up. At the head we
placed Orvis for Congtess. From the Mon
roe Democrat we get the following news :
Resolved, That since the National Labor
Greenback party of Columbia and Montour
counties have nominated E. E. Orvis, Esq.,
as their candidate for Congress,
Resolved, That we heartily concur in the
nomination of E. E. Orvis, Esq., as our can
didate for Congress, and pledge him our cor
dial and earnest support ; and we hereby
unito in requesting the remaining counties in
this district to concur in his nomination.
The .following editorial from the Monroe
Democrat is a square hit from the shoulder :
This Greenback Paity movement puts us
in mind of Kilenspicgle : One hot summer's
day whilo he was ruminating under a shade
tree Gome Handweikbburschen came along,
complaining bitterly of the hard times. Mr.
Kilenspieglo was a very communicative and
sympathetic man, and gavo these youths lots
of information. He told them that the ruler
of his country was getting some lands ready
along the rugged hillsides to plant with grape
vines and that he wanted all the laborers he
could find to get them ready in time to plant
the young vines. This information was re
received rather indifferently by the men, and
one of the party asked the old man for alms
or something to eat Ho then told them of a
land just across the mountaius called Uptopia
where sausages of great length grew on trees
and where ready fried pigeons and stewed
chickens with the richest gravy in their en
trailx were tame and would ny right down a
man's throat if he only opened his mouth
wide enough to admit their passage. This
was received by the stragglers with great en
thusiasm, and the leader told his comrades
that they would start at once for Uptopia.
So in the heat ot tho day they started to cross
the mountain. Whether they ever reached
that promisiug land we cannot say. But we
would just as quick behove that their dreams
were realized, as that tue plethora ot availa
ble money would follow the unlimited infla
tion of greenbacks, as demanded byE. E. Or
vis, Ksq.,.of Illooinsburg, and William 11,
Sinehart, &c, of Jackson.

OR BAT STORM AT I'lTTSUURU.
A terrible storm of wind and rain swept
over Pittsburg on the -lth inst. In the city
several houses were, struck by lightning, and
the Hood of water did great damage, but no
lives wcro lost. In the rural districts the
greatest losses occurred. Houses and bridges
were washed away and the crops were great"
ly damaged. At Sandy Creek village, twelvo
miles above tho city, the water rose to a
depth of four feet and carried everything be
fore it. Tho house of Abuer Conner, con
taining himself, wife and child, Ira Long
and a man named lloyd and a stranger, who
had stopped during tho storm, was carried
away and all were drowned. Tho bodies of
Conner, his wife, child and Boyd were re
covered the next day. Tho killed are Mrs.
Conrad Iteithmlller,Sharpsburg; Mrs. Keith
miller's child, Willard Prager, (both sons of
Mr. Peter Prager. president of the Sharps

are five of Mrs. Heithmlller's children, one

them were wounded latally.but all seriously,
Lizzie Crafts, was seriously hurt. Three
children of Mr. Eurgood, of Sharpsburg,
were also Injured, one ol them fatally, and
the two others had legs broken. John Sentz,

, WASHINGTON LETTER.
Washington, D. C, July 9, 1878.
On Wednesday the 10th, tho Potter Com
mittee will continue the examination ol
witnesses here. So far as has been made
public Senator Kellogg is the principal wit
ness to be called at present. The late re
markable change in bis relations with the
Administration will attract general attention
to his testimony. From being very free in
his condemnation of Mr. Hayes he has be
come equally free in bis praise, and is often
with him. The Committee expect to close
here in about two weeks. The sub-committee
in Louisiana will continue its labors in
definitely. Your correspondent has often urged upon
heads of Departments and especially upon
Mr.Schurz, because he was believed to havo
given civil service reform some honest study
the reorganization of the force employed
under them. The folly of attempting to im
prove things solely by an absurd competitive
examination on points not likely to ever
come before the officer after appointment,
seemed to have control of Mr. Schurz's
mind for a time, but has not now its old In
fluence with him. Last week he did a sen
sible and practical thing in dismissing from
office the appointment clerk of the Interior
Department. This man had been, under
Chandler, employed by one of the Republi
can Campaign Committees, and, on account
of his partisan bitterness, wr s lifted by old
Zack into tho delicate and highly responsi
ble position from which Mr, Schurz has just
displaced him. Mr. Schurz will now havo
less difficulty in finding out what are the
actual not partizan qualifications of his
subordinates, and can go on more intelli
gently in the work of reorganization.
Some of the Republican journals show a
disposition to defend John Sherman from
the charge of leaguing with scoundrels for
the purpose of stealing the vote of Louisiana
but condemn or fail to defend Senator Stan
ley Matthews. Others are eloquent in de
fence of Matthews, but attack or fail to de
fend Sherman. The evidence against both of
them is strong. That against Matthews Is
especially strong being in his own handwri
ting, but his offense is no less than Sher
man's. A man would rather be convicted of
disturbing the peace than strongly suspected
of burglary. Matthew's offense was that he
tried to cover up the frauds which there is
now little doubt Sherman assisted to commit.
It is not (proved that Matthews was in tho
House and encouraged the robbers in their
work, and promised them protection, but
only that he afterwards became aware of the
fads, and tried to conceal them for the bene
fit of the man who had the stolen goods.
Either offense is grave enough, and the Re
publican newspapers friends and enemies
of both the distinguished statesmen will do
well to compromise matters andsay nothing
about either of the distinguished criminals
With intelligent Democrats and with Re
publicans who have become alienated fiom

WiLKLSBArtiiE, July 4.
Tho weather and tho crowds hayo to-day
been more 'cndurablo than on yesterday at
V yotmng. The enterprising folks of Wilkes-
barro have had the wit to utilize the immense
throngs who crowded to the centennial to
make the biggest Fourth of July show that
the little city hai ever known. Tho city has
done its part too, right nobly, to give enter
taiumcut and amusement to tho people. Ev
erything is of tho holiday order, and as elab
orate as the dccorat.ons wcro on Tuesday and
yesterday they were largely added to in every
way during tho hours of last night. Thcro is
scarcely a building of cither public or private
character in the place that has not some show
of ovcrgrccu or bunting, and tho cooling shade
trees along Franklin street arc hung with ban
ucrs and Chinese lanterns as lar as tho eye
can see. The multitudo has had possession of
the thoroughfares ever since its return from
tho valley early last evening. At no tinio du
ring the night was thcro anything like quiet,
ami after the women and children had found
sonic place to get u little icst men and boys
took possession of tho pavement and with
horns and bells and liitleom shouts opeucd tho
way for to-day's big time.

drinking red lemonade mid eating gingerbread.
To them it was better than a circus, and it is
too much to hope that any of them will live
long enough to see another such time in
Wilkcsbarre. It was well on to noon when
tho procession got started, but when it did
move it seemed as though thcro uever would
bo an end of it. Wilkcsbarre lias worked on
this procession not alone with enthusiasm,
but with artistic intent, and has succeeded
in distinguishing itself with a show surpassing
anything of the kind ever undertaken in the
interior of the State. Tho procession consist
cd of seven divisions, leading off with the
military, at the head of which was tho Vet
erau Corps, under General I.atta, and inclu
ding tho Grand Army, civil and benevolent
societies, historical tableaux, and trades and
mechanical displays. The Sixth division,
composed of historical tableaux, was of pecu
liar interest and attraction. Indians of the
olden time, were represented in paint and fea
thers, by somo members of tho Onondaga
tribo J fifty Continental?, on foot, represented
so much of the Revolution as could be ex
pected at this remoto period. The war of
1812 was represented by a three masted ship,
carrying 18 guns and fully manned. The
peace period from 1778 to 1878, required ten
cars in the illustration, and bringing out the
various industrial developments of this valley
of beauty and wealth. All the well and clab
oratcly arranged programme for this part of
the day's show was carried out with remarks
bio fidelity. Tho Presidential party and
many other distinguished folks reviewed the
procession from the balcony of the Valley
House. The people reviewed it from tho
curbs and windows and boxes and doorways
all over town, and rather seemed lo like it. It
was lato this afternoon before this initncnso
procession had concluded its march and dis
banded and tho pcoplo had again begun their
restless ramble around the squares.
FOLLOWINO AFTEIl fJItEATNESS.
The event of the later afternoon was a re
ception at the residence of W. L. Coiiyng
haui, beautifully located on the river at the
foot of South street. There was champagne
down stairs and up stain and everywhere.
Major Norris and Stanley Woodward presided
at ono spiggot with great eclat and ushered
the folks through tho conservatory into tho
house. Tho erswd, as at all other places, was
nnmcuse. Uie President and Mrs. Hayes
with Governor Hartranft, Secictary Sherman,
General Devcus, Col. Hoyt.Scnator Cameron,
and many other distinguished people, had
gone there at 5 o'clock, and the street crowds
not slow to learn tbo drift of greatness fol
lowed closely.' The mall which stretches
eastward from the liouso for a quarter of a
mile was soon covered with men and women
while immediately in front of the house hu
manity was almost as densely packed as in
front ol the Wyoming Monument yesterday.
There was some speaking here. Colonel
Hoyt was master of ceremonies and made a
brief speech welcoming everybody to Wilkes
barre and all that the city affords. He was
followed by the President, who for the third
time since he has been here repeated his
great speech about theludiaus and the army
and apologized for speaking so long, when
some irreverent fellow iu the crowd told him
that Graut never talked so much in his life.
Mr. Hayes then wound up with a brief
eulogy of his predecessor. Governor Hart
runft spoko after this, devoting himself to
comparing tho suppose 1 hardships of tho
present with the real hardships endured by
the settlers iu the valley a century ago. He
was followed by ex-Senator Uuckalew iu
"ome remarks about the valley and the his
tory of its nomenclature. At this point Mr.
Henry W. Palmer, of this city, in a full
and clear voice read the Declaration of In
dependence, which noble document afford-
d Secretary Sherman a text for a little
American-eagle talk and some of the first
Fourth of July sentiment that the occasion
bad inspired. Ho finally dropped the eagle
and began to talk on the weather and vast
territorial extent of this glorious couutry,
and was giving the people some statesman
like advice about moving on the waste lands
of the West and South when a rough son of
Luzerne, sitting on the stone steps, asked :
"Why don't you give us Colonel Wright's
bill, and we'll go." "If you mean tlioblll to
give every man five huudred dollars," said
the Secretary, "let me tell you that the best
way to get five hundred dollars is to earn it."
Thi gentleman for Luzerne closed this joint
debate by yelling "Mrs. Jenks," and Mr.
Sherman closed his speech without further
disaster. Attorney General Devens follow
ed up. He began, as he always does, with
a story and then wove the history of Mas
sachusetts into the history of this valley
with njeasanl ease, i lie closing speech was
made by Judge Sylvester Dana, who came
all the way frcin New Hampshire for the
purpose of bringing a picture of old Gener
al John Sullivan, who came to the rescue of
the Wyoming pioneers In their time of din-
tress. The picture Is from the Executive
office of New Hampshire. On motion of
Colonel Hoyt three cheers were given for

making part of the day was a kind of com
plimentary benefit to Colonel Hoyt.
MRS. 1IAYK&' 11ECE1TION.
This evening Mrs. Hayes was given a card
reception at the residence of Charles Par
rili, It was a full-dress affair, and several
hundred invitations were out. At 11 o'clock
the general company retired and a supper
was given to a select few, including the
President and Mrs. Hayes and Governor and
Mrs. Hartranft. The Presidential party wll
leave here early In tho morning for Wash
ington, The display of fireworks kept many
on the streets till late, but at midnight tho
first Indications of quiet for three days are
manifested. Thousands went homo In the
afternoon trains and comparatively few re
main In the city. Dripping and cross and
needing rest, everybody Is glad It Is over
although everybody has had a good tlmo and
lots of it.
The celebration has been in all particulars
n success, attended as It was by some thirty
five to forty thousand people, for whichWilkes
llarro is entitled to all credit. It was tho city's
good luck that It had yesterday's anniversary
or a send-off, and it is evident to the quiet
observer who can see things impartially that
the politicians have made prompt use of this
patriotic affair to open the Republican cam
paign hero at the home of the Republican
candidate for Governor. It was natural that
Conel Hoyt should have a local Interest in
bJth these celebrations, but it has not
been iu altogether good tnso that ho has been
so conspicuous, particularly In tho events of
to-day. Not an opportunity has been missed
by Colonel Iloyt's wideawake friends to turn
things to Ids political benefit, and they have
been sometimes moro zealous than discreet.
I feel it necessary to say this because it is n
matter of common gossip all over town to
night. Senator Dill has also had a busy
threo days of It, but he has declined all pub
lic display. Only once, when bo was called
(.tit by a sernading party onJTuesday night,
has he appeared to the people. He rode up
to Wyoming with a personal friend yester
day, and at all other times has been kept in
his room by n constant crowd of people, who
have poured in, anxious to see him and
take him by the hand. Ho has made friends
by his modest conduct and his cordial tay
with everybody, whether miner, farmer or
professionaliii.nl. Ho bus bad callers from
all parts of the State, and bis party, includ
ing Chairman Speer, Senator Allen and
Congressman Clymer, has been a busy one.
Senator Dunkel has been doing some light
campaign work, and Judge Sterrelt has been,
here, becomingly comporting himself, but
other candidates are absent.
The following is tho act of the last session
of the Legislature iu reference to the rate
of interest in this commonwealth. It extends
tho provisions of tliu act of .May, 18."S, regu
lating the rutu of iuterest to all corporations
authorized to loan money within the common
wealth, and repeals all laws inconsistent with
the provisions of this act :
Section 1. That hereafter every contract
for the lean or ulvaneu nt money, iu ull cases
where no express contract shall have been
made for a less rate, shall be fl per centum
per annum; and tho 1st and 2d sections of the
act passed March 2, 1723, entitled "All act
to reduce the interest of money fiom eight
to six per centum per annum,'' bo and tho
samo is hereby tepealed.
2. That wlieu the rate nf iuteiost for the
loan or ue of money exceediug that estab
lished by law shall have been reserved or con
tracted for, the borrower or debtor shall not
bo required to pay to tho creditor the excess
over the legal late, and it shall lie lawful for
such borrower or debtor, at his option, to re
tain and deduct such excess from the amount
ol any such debt, and in ull cases win re any
borrower or debtor shall hetotofjre or hereaf
ter have voluntarily paid tlio wholo debtor
sum loaned, together witli interest exceeding
tho lawful rate, no action to recover back any
such excess shall be sustained in any court of
this commonwealth, unless the samo shall
have been commenced within six months from
and after tho timo of such payment. Provi
ded always, that nothing iu this act shall af
fect tho holders of negotiable paper taken
bona fide iu the usual ourse of business.
3. All tuns or parts of laws inconsistent
with t lie provisions of this act are hereby re
pealed, 1'iovile.l, that this act shall uot be
construed o effect or impair in any manner
contracts made prior to its pa-sago.
This nariows tho matter of usanco to a
generally satisfactory point, and takes fiom
the question of usury nearly all that iu it is
objectionable. With thi" act in forco, as wo
understand its second section, those who bave
heretofore been enabled to profit from their
own wrong on tho plea of usury are no loug
fcr tempted by law to play tho part of rascals.
Au Enterprising Reporter.
There was a picuic in Eby's Grove, near
Dayton, Ohio, one day, Some of the young
men wandeied down the river. Iu n se
cluded nook they discovered a pile of female
clothing. They looked into the river for
sigus of life or death, but saw nothing. A
newspaper reporter of the party took down
all the surroundings, rummaged among the
clothes, and found there were several sets or
suits of them, little and big. Iu on e pocket
a love letter was found, written by Hal to
Julia. The clothing was tenderly bundled
up and taken to the picnic camp, stuffed un
der a buggy seat, and the party started home
feeling very sad. It did not.occur to them
at once that it was a little strange a young
woman and two or three little girls should
commit suicide all at once. It was perhaps
Julia aud her little sisters who had thus
plunged into eternity. It was a very Bad
case all agreed disappointed love perhaps
and on the theory of suicide the love let
ter would be a good thing for the account.
The clothes were taken to the police office.
The reporter was satisfied that he bad a good
thing. The account was read evidently,
for early in the morning an angry father
came raging into police quarters demanding
the clothes. His daughter had taken a walk
on the river bank with two or three little
neighbor girls, and the place being secluded
and the temperature warm and the water In
viting, they concluded to take a bath. Soon
tboy beard voices in the woods, and hid
themselves iu the bushes. They huddled
together as quiet as mice uutil the Intruding
