A FLAT PAIMIHE.
Tho Attempt of the Republican of this
week to give name, us they threatened, is
no mure n support of the charge made by
it against Dili's friend than it ii u proof
that the moon is made, of green cheese. It
I'baigril that tho friends of Dill were offering
railroad .iscs to secure votes lor liini, nnd
caid It could give name of those who had
olf.red thetu, and those to whom they have
been offered. We challenged the editors to
give natne, and they attempted to gel out
out of the difficulty by passing our challenge
over silently. Wo then demanded tho name,
mid this week In answer to that they publish
an article headed "Ilxv. .1. C. Clarke and
the Telegraph," in which it is alleged that
"Rev. Win. 11. 3)111 will not deny that he
offered a good llro. a p.iss from Sunbury to
Ualtimoro. ltev. AIcMurray will scarcely
deny that he travels on a pass secured
through tho inllucnce of Win. II. Dill and
Advocates Dili's election on the ground that
Methodi.m does not occupy tho position it
ought to nud that Dill's election will give it
what it is entitled to." And this is all the
proof of the fact that Andy Dill's friends
are offering railroad passes in his behalf
Rev. YV. H. Dill may have offered "a good
Uro. a pass from Sunbury to Baltimore." It
is a universal custom to allow ministers of
tho Gospel to travel on half faro or passes,and
tho offer may have been year9 ago. We nee,
not informed as to that, but presume that
if it was recently, the dato would have beeu
given, ltev. JIc.Murray too msy travel on a
pass, and he may advocate the election o
Dill for reasons of his own, but does that
satisfy any reasonable man of tWe truth o:
the assertion of the Republican t They made
their assertion with a great bIiow of impor
tance, nnd put it iu such shape as to carry
the impression that the Democratic party
were using passes freely to secure the elec
tion of tbeir candidate. On being cornered
they simmer down to the single point that
one man and he a brother of A. II. Dill's
did on one occasion offer to one other man a
pass from Sunbury to Baltimore, and this
charge even is entirely unsupported by any
evidence that it was during this campaign
or done in the behalf of Mr. Dill.
Who ever heard of such frivolous argu
ment based only ou inferences drawn from
uncertain evidence, used against a candidate
for any office ?
We have to add in conclusion that the
bluff game iu this case did sot scare, and
the effort to sustain their charge has proved
a flat failure.

Tho following proceedings are pertinent to
the pending Congressional contest in our Dia
trict: Tho Democratic Convention for tho Luzerne
and Lackawanna portions of tho Eleventh
Congressional District was held at Scranton,
on Monday afternoon, the 9th iust. The
Chairman called the convention to order

Secretary. The temporary organization was
contioued, except that Mr. Edwin Shoitz, of
White Haven was chosen Secretary. The
following preamble and resolutions were

A more despairing crowd than the Cam
eron ring has been up to this lime has never
beeu found In a political campaign in Penn
sylvania. Hut iu the last few days their
leaders have ret up a cry of confidence, and
It is to be font all along the line, Like
Swift's philosopher who extracted sunbeams
from cucumbers f omo ol the Cameron lend
ers have sought todrnw consolation and hope
from the Maine election which resulted for
the first and only time in twenty years In the
loss of a republican governor nud two mem
bers of congress. They know belter than to
fight with despairing troops if they can help
It, and hence their extreme anxiety to create
as large a degree of confidence as possible
among their followers. But they have con
fidenco In the power of the only element uiv
on which fliey can depend for success Me
power of money. They publicly boast of
their success In having raised an immense
sum from federal office holders rf every
degree. Their candidate for United States
senator who Is the reputed possessor of two
or threo millions Is to contribute largely of
his wealth to carry the legislature, nnd the
chairman of the state, commltteo Is to come
lown liberally with a contribution from the
lees of the off ce of lecorder. So large is
the sum raised that Impecunious politicians,
and county committees are everywhere bold
ly assured that ihey will be supplied with all
tho money they need, or all that may be
profitably employed In corruptlngvoters and
In manipulating the ballot box.
Lot our democratic friends therefore be
on the alert. They can only interpose per
sonal ffurt and sleepless vigilance againt
tho insidious powerof money corruptly used.
Watch the traitors, foremost among whom
are volunteer candidates. Watch the men
who start any cry of discord. Chairman
Specr Is doing all that human effort honestly
aud earnestly directed may be expected to
accomplish with the means nt his disposal
for strengthening the democratic lines, and
he I struggling for victory with an energy
and confidence that know no abatement.
But the essential power of money for tho
necessary and legitimate purpose of distri-.
buting political information among the peo
ple is wanting. He has no source of supply
to draw from, but must depend upon the
generous contributions of private individuals.
For these reasons wo appeal to democrats
everywhere to buckle on their armor and
prepare for n desperate struggle with tho
power of corruption. The utmost attention
should be given to the payment of taxes on
or before the Cth of October, so that no dem
ocrat be prevented from depositing his bal
lot by non-payment. This duty should be
.attended to at once. Success may depend
upon efficiency nt this point.
The democracy of Pennsylvania need not
be warned in regard to the reckless and cor
rupt foe that confronts them. They need
not be pointed to the means on which the
Cameron ring must depend to retain their
hold of power. No democrat will falter at
a time like this or attempt to sow discord
hi the ranks of the party. None will fall in
the effort to combine every element of re
form in the state for the purpose of arresting
the abuses and extravagance that have
grown up in the government. Then up and
to work I Rally like strong men for your
cause, your commonwealth, and the best in
terests of all the people. Let nothing im
pede your just efforts to rescue tho state from
the grasp of tho spoilers. Patriot,
A Voting Iies'nlence.
No person can, at the same time, have
more than ono residence or domicile.
A person employed or in business at any
other place than his residence, can only legal
ly vote in tho district whore ho resides and his
presence in any other district for more than
two months immediately preceding tho elec
tion does not qualify him to voto in such dis
tricts. Residence, for tho purpose of voting, is
tho unrestrained, voluntary act of an elector,
who elected a residenco for his convenience
and comfort, without any other consideration
for more than two months immediately pre
ceding the election, and all pcrcons that claim
the right to vote in any election district of the
state, must have bonafide resided therein, and
bo otherwiso qualified according to tho con
stitution. Tho 13th section, articlo Sth of the consti
tution of Pennsylvania says : "For the pur
pose of voting no person shall be deemed to
have gained a rcsidenoe by reason of his pres

The severe storm, of which a portion was
experienced in this locality, did great damage
in Western Pennsylvania, Virginia, West
Virginia, Ohio, and portions of Canada. Iu
Western Pennsylvania tho rain lasted three
days, tlie istorni reaching the climax with a
futious gale of wind on Thursday night. Tel
egraph lines wero prostrated, and travel on
tho western railroads was icterrupted by wash
outs. At Meadvillo, tho creek running
through tho town was flooded, and $100,000
worth of property was destroyed. A freight
train on the Atlantic and Great Western
Railroad broko through a bridgo about three
miles from tho town, and tho engineer, fire
man and brakeman wero drowned. Yesterday
morning a man was drowned by falling iuto
thoswoolen creek at Meadville. A train on
tho Erie and Pittsburg road ran into a culvert
uear Shenango, killing tho engineer and fire
man and fatally injuring the brakemnn. A
houso was swept away atGuntown, near Con-
ucantvdle, and it is feared several lives have
beeu lost. M Geneva a tuau aud a boy were
drowDcd. In Virginia great damage was
dono by tho wind, as well as raiu.many hous

persons injured. Tho river at Lynchburg is
rising rapidly. Bridges on various railroads
have boon demolihed. Iu West Virgiuia,
tho rain at WhecliHg, was "the heaviest and

PALACE OF TUB TltOOADEttO,
l'Aius, August 30th 1878.
A few weeks ago thoro was published in a
lit orcarly a score of scientific; congresses
that were to bo held in tho Talaco of tho
Trocadcro : A cougress'of "Demography,"
Dr. Bcrtillon, n distinguished savntit is tho
inventor of tho science of Demography or at
least of the name. His excellent maps enable
ono to take in rapily tho parts of Franco
whero legitimate provail over illegitimate
births, whero incgular unions aro most fre
quently "regularized," and natural children
recoguized by their fathers ; where thero is
most druukeness ; where criuio is virulent
aud barefaced and where it skulks ; where
primary instruction is most general j along
what t'ivch cancer, or croup, or bronchitis, or
typhoid fever, or pulmonary consumption pre-
vail, tho statistics of diseaso at river' mouths'
and rivers' sources ; tho climates and soils
niot fatal to infants, to youths, and to young
girls ; for tho geographical condition that suit
tho limb organization in youth are often per
niciousto tliol'cuia'o and ri'cf verm. Two of
tho most moral departments, if morality is to
be tested by tho scarcity of illegitimate chil
drcn and tho frequency of marriages, aro the
nuduo and tho Gers. Tho former is n very
wealthy and a very bad department, nnd has
fonts chief town Angnou, into which, before
it was annexed to France, tho violeut men of
of tho south, flying'from justice, ued to con
crczate. Its population still savors of this
origin. Rut apart from violence they aro an
essentially virtuous people in the chief town
of tho Department of uucluse.
Paris is a sink of corruption if judged by
Dr. Rcrtillou's maps. Why it should bo so
requires Mine explanation. When a provin
cial girl meets with a misfortuuo which causes
her to bo shunned by her neighbors slio turns
her face Parisward, and coms here to luako
a new departure. Other girls are attracted
by the high wages given to domestic servants
and the clamour of the dazzling city ; while
a vast number who doiro to reap the wagfcs
of sin, and amuso themselves immensely iu
reaping them desert farms nnd workshops in
small towns to join the army of vice. Tho
largest proportion of recruits from this direo
tion is furnished by Rheims and its environs
Why this is so is not explained by the statis
tician I have named. It is probably duo to
tho poverty of tho Chainpcnois soil and tho
exciting nature of the wives of the Maono
Valley. Poorly fed women have not vital en
crgy enough to faco bravely a life of hard
work. Anaemia follows on insufficient nutri
tion and laziness on anaemia. The well fed
robust Norman Peasant girl is covetous and
selfish, but it is not her way to seek a live!!
hood in vico when she comes to Paris. The
high rents of lodgings in tho department of
tho Seiue U a serious impediment to mar'
nage. A workingman can live pleasantly in
garret where two would bo miserable, and
an infant would soon perish from the heat of
the slate roof immediately overheard in sum'
mcr or from the cold in winter. Tho Nord
take it all in all is the most vicious depart
mcnt in Franco. Factories, drunkenness, and
gross appetites, render tho towns pandeinoni
uuis. Sunshine, fruit and olive oil, aro grca
boons of heaven to the inhabitants of tin
southern provinces and conduco to health
contentment and longevity, when onco tho in
fantile diseases aro surmountcl. Rut the
principle of natural selection operates severely
there on young children.
In the right wing of tho Trocadcro there
aro fifteen small rooms devoted to a French
ethnographic exhibition. It shows the pro
gross of this nation towards civilization from
the prehistoric period, when men lived en
tirely in caves and holes scooped out in hill
sides, aud carved rude images on the tusks of
elephauts which then roamed iu the jungles of
western Europe. Here skulls of a remote pe
riod may bo seen, and there is but little differ
ence to be found in the skull of tho troglodyte
of that time and the cranium of the better
sort of ape. The artistic aspiration, scientific
theorists tell us, proceeded from the superior
quality of tho brain. In the lacustrian period
of progress toward civilization made a long
stride. Living in habitations resembling those
of beavers aud defended from their natural en
emies, thecaruivcrousbeasts.by tho water that
environed them, our ancestors took up seden
tary habits and occupations. Their water
huts, construsted on islands and dams, became
to some extent workshops, and when the la
custriaus quitted their water defeuded homes
to live ou terra firtna they had acquired hab
its of sociability and mutual dependence.
The food on which they lived amid tho lakes
was piscatory, no better food for tho brain,
scientists tell us. The early Gauls left the
deepest traces of their foot prints on the up
ward path towards civilization iu tho graves
of their progenitors ; by them implements of
bronze wero manufactured, the altar became
the meeting place of tho tribo ; processions
wero orginized, and in Druidical rites those
glimmerings, of science and philosophy which
wero castiug light on tho Gallic brain were
brought iuto a focus. A literary element was
brought in by the high civilization of Rome,
which next came upon tho scene. The church,
as in the time of tho Druids, was the synthe
sis of art, philosophy and science As com
pared with pagan antiquity, Christendom was
very benighted under the Morovignian and
Carlovigniau dynasties, but an inspection of
this ethnographic museum will convince many
that tho darkness of that era has been over
rated. In tho 15th century the drama began
to evolve itself in' tho "passion plays" aud
"mysteries." Wo Gnd in this section seven

A British consular report from Persia
states that almost every child in that coun
try Is taught to read nnd write. The Koran Is
the text book. But as there aro no books In
the Persian character except manuscript
books, tho condition of popular intelligence
Is that of five centuries ago. When ths
Consul reports no books except manuscript,
he probably overlooks the versions of the
Bible printed In the Peisian characters.
That, however, Is not printed Iu Persia, and
would not be included among books In gen
eral circulation. Few ,new books aro read,
the cost of manuscript being too much for
popular circulation, an 1 few nre written,
Tho Persians ad he re in chemistry to the old
notion of four elements. In astronomy they
nre in nccord with the colored Virginia
teacher, who maintains that the sun moves
round the esrth. In other sciences, as pre

same ; nllhough of course , the highly edu

of western products before them, they nro

this plensint picture. Tho yearly earning of
twenty five to fifty dollars ns n sufficient in

rica and Europe, but the mental stagnation
which this Arcidlan life Involves Is
condition which reconciles tho Western
world, even to the dally newspaper nud tho

Our readers will remember that some time
since a man residing in this city who felt hini'

was of actual necessity. The Altoona Evening

A Washington correspondent of the
Graphic writes : There is a curious fight
going on in the attorney general's ofhee be
tween a judge and a district uttorney in
Wyoming territory, A couple of years ago
Judge Peck, of Vermont, was appointed
judge of Wyoming, but on account of his
notions regarding morals aud court etiquette
he soou became very unpopular in the terri
tory. He even carried his whim of profes
sional propriety so far fls to prohibit swear
ing lu court, and is said to have fined a law
yer who swore at a witness during his cross
examination, Another peculiarity of this
judge is a dislike of seeing attorneys, when
arguing a case before him, pass around a bot
tle of whisky, nnd he Is said to be violently
opposed to lawyers treating the jury to
'drinks' while u ttial is in progress. Judge
recfc is also reported to have violated com
mon decency by refusing to proceed with a
case until the attorneys engaged in it had
extinguished their pipes ; and a community
at once rose iu indignation when be ordered
a lawyer to remove his feet from the judge's
desk. These whimsical notions nre alleged
to "have made Judge Peck very unpopular In
the territory j but wheu ho instructed a grand
ury to indict every man who indulged in
gambling or sold liquor without n license,
the outraged public demanded his removal.
Not being able to secure this, a bill, drawn
by District Attorney Johnson, passed the
territorial leflislature.reapportloning'the ter
ritory judicial districts, nnd assigning Judge
Peck to the northern district, which does
not contain a town or a court house, and is
entirely uninhabited except by military gar
risen?, Indians aud wild beasts, He was de
prlved, by this bill, of any jurisdiction what
ever, nnd the Indignation of the public was
satisfied. The governor of the territory who
approved this remarkable bill was removed
by the President last winter, and an act was
passed by the senate disapproving the action
of the territorial legislature ; but through
the influence of the delegate iu congress the
house of representatives refused to concur
with the senate, and the bill was defeated
Judge Peck, who has now no jurisdiction,
has nothing to do but labor for the removal
of District Attorney Johnson, who, he claims
U the author of all nf the mischief. But
Johnson Is warmly sustained by the citizens
who feel a debt of gratitude to him for bis
brilliant achievement in shelving such an
outrageous judge ; and Johnson, backed by
the citizens, la endeavoring to secure Judge
Peck's removal promising, when that Is ac

Whnt Salary Dors n Farmer Iteceivc ?
lln receives the equivalent of a larger sal
ary than ninety-nine out of n hundred ol
them aro willing to admit. They tinder-es-tlniato
their own profits nnd overestimate
the profits of men living on n salary,
Tliero Is a great difference nmong those
who live hy farming. A grent many work
the soli because they do not know what elso
todo, or because they cannot live by nuy
thing else, Many of this class hardly de
serve to be classed ns farmers. They lower
the standard of farming ns a business. I
bellevo there Is no business by which a man
can live so well with so much neglect as In
agriculture. Still nothing better repays
good care and ability. It Is rather slow to
yield brilliant returns nt the outset ; bo Is
nny business. Tho farmer's profits are con
cealed in the rise of land In Improvements
by ditching, clearing, new buildings, more
land, more tools, or better stock. Most
farmers have no Idea how lauch It costs them
to live. They forget to fijrure in the pork,
poultry, mutton, butter, flour, vegetables,
etc,, etc. The salary man lives entirely by
his Individual efforts. In estimating a sala
ry we must do so by looking nt the privileges
enjoyed, the bard woik of brain and muscles,
and tho gain In property nnd Improvements.
I nin personally ncqualnted with two
brothers In Michigan, who started out nn
equality nbout twenty yenrs ncn. Ono of
them, after receiving n good education, went
to farming, the other to teaching. They had
only n few hundred dollars to start with.
The one who followed teaching for tho last
six years has received annually from two
thousand to two thousand seven hundred
dollars. One-third of this amount would be
called a large salary by nine-tenths of our
farmers, who can save as much each year as
does the tho teacher referred to. The farm
er of the two brothers under consideration,
owns nnd works n smalt place of seventy or
eighty acres, which ho is steadily improving.
He has good building. He owns small
cheese factory. He is out of debt. He has
lately bought fifty acres more of land, worth
$2,000, nnd, from previous experience, ho is
certain he can save $500 a year nbovo all ex
penses, to apply ns payment ou his recent
purchase. He is easily keeping up with the
teacher in accumulating wealth. He works
no harder. The natural tact of the two men
for work and business was not much differ
ent while they worked together on the old
homestead. Tho farmer is not an old fogy
in any sense of t'le word. He is nil the
time looking for new and better Implements
but he is very cautious nbout buying any of

that he can make good use of them. He
does not mako costly experiments, but he is
every year trying some new vegetables, or
grnins or grasses. He is improving his stock

good bargains. What he has earned has
come by legitimate farming. Some would
call him a little conservative. He is very

IN EXTENSIVE IHrROVKMEXT TIIENKW STORE Of
STRAW BKIDOB & CLOTHIER OKOWTU OFTIIKIlt
In 1SC2, la an old-fashioned, three-storied brick
building, at tho northwest corner of Eighth and
Market,JustusC. strawbrldge and Isaac H. Clothier
commenced tho dry goods business. Their capital
was not large, tho ground noor of tho store, not
more than twenty-live feet square, and tie stock of
goods they had on hand.although well selected, yas
necessarily small. As their business increased tlisy
mado several Improvements.but soon their trade be
came too extensive for their contracted quarters.and
the question how to Increase their faculties, which
bad been under conslderttlou, had at length to be
solved, so, In iscs, tho Orm transferred their busi
ness to a store across the way, and commenced the
erection of a building on the old site, better adapt-
d to tho Increasing trade which, through fair deal-
Ing and honest enort, hod grown from almost noth
ing to cuWable proportions. The new building was
ave btorles high, thenrst story of the Market street
front ibelng of iron, and the other stories ot Plctou
stone, Tho Eighth street front was of brick.
As soon as tho new building was completed (In
tho latter part of 's) the nrm took possession of It,
and their fame and reputation, already well-founded
In the city, soon spread through the surrounding
country, and tho result was an uncxpectedlylarge
lncrraso of patronage. In isis thoy wero again com
pelled to Increase their facilities, and this time they
extended then- bulldlnr nlong Eighth street S3 feet
making their storo wo feet deep, the frontage of 4 1
reet remaining the sane. Tho Increase in thtlr bu
slness was still so marked and rapid that the nrm
were again puzzled as to what they should do for
moro room. To the west ot them wero two buildings
(S05 and 6')7 Market street) for sala, and these they
lmmedUtely purchased, and bought at sos. Tho three
buildings bad a frontage of is feet and run back a
distance ot 100 feet. Early this ) ear they decided to
utilize this newly acquired property, and on June
1st the demolition ot the buildings was commenced,
with a lew to erecting upon the premises an addi
tion to the Arms atready commodious store. The
Improvement has Just been completed, and on Mon
daj", tho wholo building, which by the way, Is one ot
the largest nnd best arranged mercantile houses In
ne city, will bo thrown open for the Inspection of
The buUdlng as It now stands presents a handsome
appearance, Its Irontago b Ing 90 feet, depth loo.and
helghth Ave stories. Tho architecture nnd material
of tho old and new parts are tho same, and Immedi
ately In tho rear, trontlng on Filbert avenue, have
been erected the counting rooms and ornee s of tho
establishment. The Market street front of tho
structure as it now Is has no superior In appearance
among tne business bouses along that thoroughfare.
It U regular and symmetrical, being broken wily In
Ihe centre by the main entrance on the ground floor
large sunken windows abOTC and a tower, or observ
atory, springing from the roof. To heighten the
architectural appearance, thero has been construct
ed, of gal antzed Iron, a roof bearing some relation to
the treiieh mansard.
The Internal arrangements of tho building are
comple le. On tho first floor, a spacious and well-
lighted np.ut v.cnt, thero are many circular and
straight counters, and In the centre ot tho room,
equally btndy to all the clerks, are accommodations
for four cashiers, and those employed to wrap and
pnek tux goods sold. Each counter Is devoted to
some particular line of goods, and there are display,
ed In profusion silks, dress materials of all kinds
cloths, easslme'es, hosiery, underwear.fancy good",
oress trimmings, domestic and foreign cottons, etc.
Back are the counting rooms and onices, and adjoin
ing the sUk counter is a dark room where the night
hues and tints of the stlk on sale aro shown.
The floor ahOTe Is handsomely ntted up and richly
carpeted. This Is the ready made goods department
ot the itabllshment, where ladles' underwear,
wraps, suits, cloaks, shawls, etc., are sold. Parlors
and retiring rooms aro ntted up In connection with
The third floor Is principally used as a sewing
room, w here much rf the ready-made stock ot the
Arm Is prepared. On the same floor ts the mall or
der deportment, where the wonts ot the peopld liv
ing out of the city are attended to.
The fourth and fifth floors are used as examina
tion and steraio rooms. To this place all goods are
sent for examination before being placed upon the
counters, and here, also, duplicates of stock in band
are kept stored.
In the basement of the old part ot the binding Is
where linens, blankets, sc., are kept on sole, while
the basement of Ihe new part Is demoted ;to several
purposes. Here are the engines and boilers, which
furnish the building with steam, and the freight and
passenger elevators (the flrst of which leads to the
ground tloor, and the latter to tho fifth story,) with
motive power, Thero are also In this department
the package room, dining-room, coat room and lav.
In the whole btoro about WS men and women are
tmploj ed, and all comenlentes for their comfort. It
would seem, as well as facilities for the firm's pat
rons, havo been provided.
