liovo in a well organized and disciplined mil
ilia, but do not favor a small standing army
in this State in a timo ot peace, and which
is worto thin useless in times of intestine
troubles. Wo quoto with approval fiom the
Cambria FYeeman, that "Tho maintenance of
tho National Guard of tins Stato in all tne
liride. nouip, and circumstances of glorioii;
war,' has assumed the form of a raid upon
the public treasury ol tho most alarming pro
portions. Tho leport of tho Auditor General
for 1878 pliows during tho year tho amount of
money paid out of tho Stato Treasury for
militia expenses,' was SlG0,GS7.i4. Aud now
a bill is pending m tho Legislature, and nctu
ally passed the Houso early lat week, appro
priating the sum of one hundred and sixty
thousand dollars out of tho Treasury, to bo cx
pended by tlio Adjutant General in purchas
iu? for tho National Guard such uniforms,
treat coats, blankets, knapsacks and accou'
trements, as', may be necessaty to complete its
cnuinment. after tho stylo and pattern ol sun
ilar articles now in use by tho United States
armv. Shortly beforo tho Legislature met
Mr. Wickcrsham, the Superintendent of I'ub
lie Instruction, stated in a public speech that
it was useless for him to draw his warrants
for common school purpose, for tho reason
(thanks to tho Republican Legislature of last
year) that there wa no money in too treasii'
ry to meet them. With this disgraceful state
of affairs starin? tho Legislature in its face.
tho members of the House by a votoof 124
yeas to C2 nays, found no soit of difficulty in
endorsing this huge and extravagant appro
priation to tho National Guard. Mr. Doyle,
n Greenback member trom Huntingdon cuin
ty, made nuito a spirited and vigorous atlack
on tho bill, mainly on the ground of tho p res
ent depleted condition of the Stato Treasury,
and also because of tho inefficiency of tho
Guard, charging it with being directly respon
sible for tho Pittsburg riots. Tho Adjutant
General, however, and his brigadiers who
were on hand lobbying for the money, had
their forces well organized, and rushed the
bill through by the vote we have stated. Will
the hopes of tho people for legislative 10
trenehmcut and reform ever bo realized 1
Candidates for tho Legislature are always very
loud and emphatic iu their profusions of re
form before tho election, but bIifii they go to
Haniburg they appear to think that the only
or at least tho chief burine.-s of a legislature,
is to vote away the people' money. Wheth
er tho taxpayers of tho Stato will quietly
submit to this extravagant wajte of tho pub
lic funds for military purposes, is a question
which they themselves must answer.' "
To show tho further absurdity of the estab
lishment, it is only necessary to quoto tho fol
lowing formidable order :

Wo admit that tho majority of this formi

a mockery at this time to organize Pennsylva

than that of tho Commander-in-Chief of the

Gen. Butler'a Individual report frcm tho
Potter committee concludes thus !
From tho evidence produced btfuro tho com
mitted, my mind has been brought to sou-r
at conclusion.-", namely :
tint. That in 187G thcro was no loir mid

of that Stato ousht not, therefore, to have

l-lics, as they noro called, wcro within tho
fiir an 1 jii't.exoicioof I ho jtiri-ilietlt nof tho

tie.", the majority ut votes weioca-t fur Pack
aril tor go- emor and n poition ef the Tildeu
electors, leaving two or nioro H-tyej electors
I'ifth. Tint such a count an 1 return would
have, for which along thero seems any author
ity in thoboird, given full expression to tho
will t;l the people, in such puts of the state
as were not affected by coeicion and loteitee,
iu lavor of Pnekaul and ngiinst two or moio
of tho Hityes electors, which would hive giv
en tlio presidency to Tilden, as would have
been tho caoiflha whale voto of the state
had been rejected by I o h Horses.
Sixth. Tho declaration of both Houses of
Congics that under tlio circumstances the
stato of LouUtann should not be counted tor
cither candidate, would have been tho best
possiblo result to tho country, becauso it would
have taught a good lenn to. tho over zcalmis
partisans that elections cannot bo cirriod eitl
t r byj foieo or intimiditinu at tho poll", or
by fraud in tho returns so as to avail tho suc
cessful candidate, an 1 if so carried by cither,
tho votes wou'd bo rejected by the final count
ing tribunal. On tho contrary, under the rul
ings of tlio electoral commission, if they are
accepted as tho governing law, every encout
agemcnt is given to reckless, strenuous parti
sans t3 carry their states cither by favor or by
Seventh. That tho electoral commission, as
constituted, has alfoided no practical solution
of tho constitutional difficulties attending tho
count of electoral votes in disputed states.nnd
that an exigency again arising like that of
1S7G-7 will surely lead to revolution by the
Eighth. That the appointment of such elec
toral commission to have anything to do with
counting tho votes returned for president and
vieo president of tlio United States whatever,
is in so far an abdication of the constitutional
powers and duties of the two Houses, is
wholly beyond aud outsidoof tho constitution
and ought to have no legal force or effect.
Ninth. That tho appointing of tho judges
of tho supreme court upon such political for
mation has dono great harm to the cause of
justice by impairing tho reverence that tho
peoplo have always justly had for tho integ
rity of tho decisions of that court, of causes
between party and party, and in undermining
the popular estimate of the stern impartiality
of the court, that in all questions it will do
equal and exact justico under tho law lo every
citizen, aud in view of its ill success tho ex
periment ought never to be tried again.
Tenth. Tho result has shown that it is
against public policy and tends to bring ele
ments of corruption into political methods of
action to send semi-official partisans of large
political infiuenco on ono side or the other, or
both, into states for tho purpose of controlling
or advising either in regard to how its electors
shall voto or to'adviso as to the manner in
which tho voto of slates shall be returned and
Eleventh. That tho counting iu of Mr.
Hayes was obtained by a serios ol gross and
unjustifiable irregularities aud frauds, which
caunot be too strongly condemned and repro
bated. I'welflh. That if any title to tho governor
ship of Louisiana resulted from tho late elec
tion in that stato to any one, it was to Gov
ernor Packard, who was legally elected, duly
qualified and inaugurated, and had a right
to tho support of tho genoral government
against domestic violence and insurrection, by
which tlio stato and himself were equally de
prived of their just political rights.
Thirteenth. That tho act of Mr. Hayes,
ns president of tlio United States in ap
pointing antl sending tlio McVeagh com
mission down to Louisiana for tho purposes
and under tho instruction to act under which
it was sent, was an act wholly unauthorized by
the constitution, and not within tho power or
scope of tho executive, and specially repre
hensible, ns its lnotircs and purposes wcro to
carry out a corrupt political arrangement,
agreement aud compact on bis part, made by
his friend', with his knowledge and acquiea
cenco and consent, the fruits of which ho is
still enjoying without right and ajinst law.
I'uurteenth. That thero neither is nor ought
to bo any indeteasiblo titlo to any executive
office which cannot bo tcachctl, re-examined
and decided by proper proce;dings authorized
by Congress, to bo taken and heard ultimately
before tho supremo judicial court.
A Oootl Hill.
Hon C. T. Alcxauder, Senator from this
district, at IIarrhburg, last week lead in
place a bill making it a mUdemeanor for any
person between the ages ot 18 and 1!1 years to
ash for liquor at tho barof auy hotel, and al.-o
making it a misdemeanor iu any pcr.-on to
represent a minor as bcins cffull ago for tho
purpose of cnabliug minors to ge t intoxicating
beverages. This is an excellent bill, and if
pa-scd by tho Legislature will have a good
effect upon the publio morals. Wo novcr
could exactly understand tho j istico of tho
law which holds a tavern keeper responsible
fur selling liquor to a minor, wliilo it
lets tho minor himself go free. There aro
many persons under ago who havo tho appear
ance of having attained their full majority,
and sv ho are sometimes bearded liko a parti 1
Wlicu such persons, thorefore, go up to the
bar uud ask for liquor, how is tho bar keeper
to know that thoy nro minors ? It would be
an insult to ask them such a question.
It is ju.-t as criminal lor a person knowing
himself under ago to ath fur liquor at the bar
as it is for tho bar keeper to sell it to hiui.aud
ho ought to bo held responsible, if detected.
Wo hope this bill will become a law, and urgo
all honest and well iutcntioned legislators to
support it. Ilelleonte Watchman.

The argument in its favor is contained in
the following communication which we pub

ALLKIlllKNY COUNTY'S PLEA,
A question that occupies the attention o:
tin p t. pie at this time is who b to pay the
not claims tor damages causeu by tne ran
road riots of 1877 1
We cannot but think that a brief present
ation of the uncontroverted facts in reference
to the riot will remove the prejudice so un
Justly entertained against Allegheny count
When n riot occurs, winch originates
local causes, the damage to property created
theieby must be discharged by the people of
tne locality, mat is clear, uui it it origi
nates iu causes so extensive in their opera
tion as tc embrace teu or twelve States, and
a particular locality is but the
scene of the outbreak then th
State Is responsible, for it Is charg
ed with the duty of suppressing sucn riot
within its borders, it is wen Known that
the caes which led to tho riot were opera
ling for months previous to the outbreak all
over I'ennsylvaula, Ptow, is it jut that Al
legheny county should pay for damages ere
uletl by the riot simply because Pittsburgh
was cho-en as the place for the overt act ?
The destruction to be paid for was wrought
in Allegheny county, true; but there are
thousands ot men iu that county whr took
un part in it, were not near the place where
ic occurred, gave tne woric oi violence no
encouragement, men who wcro practically as
far from the scene of it, anil actually as inno
cent of any criminal deed or intent as any
of their fellow citizens iu auy other part of
the State. On what principle nf abstract
justice, which is the standard appealed to,
are the peopb of Allegheuy county respon.
sihle for the riots, nnd liable for tho dama
ges none, aim those en any oilier onion oi
the State- not ?
Tho injustice of holding Allegheny county
responsible for the loss inclined during tho
riots, and exempting tho counties Immedi
atc-iy adjoining, is more appairnt when the
circumstances which led to the loss aro con-
Idered. Tho strlkn and the events which
followed it wcro not brought about by tho
people nf Allegheny county. Many of tho
strikers, ami many nf the railway employ
es who sympalhizd with them, have no lo
cal habitation, They are migratory, living
on the rnilway lines that forms a net work
Ihrtiiishnut the Uolon. thcso men coming
into Allegheny county for the purpose of
sus'nintug tho strikers, assumed sucn num
bers as to nt era wo tl.e local auihotlltrs, and
neees'ltatu tht' Interposition of tho State for
the pititecllon of the railway properly, pri

Tho claims arlslti from thedamngecati'cd
by these Ishmae'ltes must be paid, so says
the law, it Allegheny county is legally rc
sponlble, they should bo charged to that
county. If the State is responsible, the Leg
islature should tnaiiluMy assume thorn lor
th" people of tho wlmleHtate.
Hut Is Alltuhenv county Icrra lv or mor-
rally responsiblo lorlheso losc? Wo think
not. It was not n lint, but an Insurrection
cxtrnillng over ihe w-liolo country. Nearly
evriy Stale ill the- Union was Involved, and
not only the militia ut iiiescveral stale,but
tlio Federal troops were cellod out to sup
press the Insurrection and preservo public
order. In tills State the outbreak occurred
at Pittsburgh, but this was simply an acci
dent, and It might have occurred anywhere
else iu the Uommonwenlih. it has been as
certained that Ics than five per centum of
Ibosn who e-onlribule-d most to the destruc-
tiouon that black buud.iy were citizens of
Tue local nutliotlties finding their efforts
at rt-'toring order wholly tut fleet ual, called
upon the State for aid. The State assumed
control, ami the iroops marched into Alle

irei!Miui, miu 11113 oc:iumi) m me vjuuiniuu-
wealth. The civil aud military representa
tives of the Kxecutive of Ihe Slate with tho
National Guard were on tho ground, and
there were 110 nsaults made, no bloodihctl,
nor plundering, nor Incendiarism, nor de
struction of property until after the State
troops appealed, and tho btate authorities
had a-uinetl abs-iluto control ofctrilrs; aud
therelore, the responsibility lor the suppres
sion of the riots, and failing in that, the re
sponsibility lor Ihe losses consequent on
them, devolves upon the Slate.
Itjt apirt from the legal responsibility of
Allegheny county, the payment of the
amount of thelo-ses ($4,000,000) would fall
upon that county with crushing weight. Its
payment would involve the couoty in bank
ruptcy nnd ruin. Allegheny county cannot
best) completely Isolated, that this burden
can be inflicted upon her people, anil not
felt by the rest nf tne Stale. As the seiond
city in tho Stale, and the busy mart ot the
people ol tho entire western region, Pitts
burgh cannot suffer financial ruin, anil the
people all around her ccape from its eff-cts.
If an important member be paralyzed by
such a str.,ke, the whole body must sufi't-r.
There should be no subterfuge in this mat
ter. It will not bear trifling with. hat
ever may be tho duties anil responsibilities
of the State to those sufferers by the riots
who were under the protection of her lews,
it is plain enough that Allegheny county
caunot bear the burden.
The easiest nnd quickest way out of the
dilemma, ut this time, is the best way, and

Legislature should receive the sanction of
every honest mau within the borders of our
This is 1.0 more than simple justice. No
more than good citizenship and neighborly
We ask the representatives trom this coun
ty to think this matter over carefully, and
see if both justice and public policy will
not be subserved by extending n helping
hand to Allegheny. Certainly, if we were
caught in so bad a trap and any county is
liable to be so caught we would cry out

"On the twenty-first antl twenty-second
days of July, 1877, the city of Pittsbure
was visited by nn extraordinary 'strike' of
railroad employes, extending over a vast
urea, ami through many states. Among the
citietdisturbed by itsebulltions we reChicago,
at. i'iih, inoianapous, rtewnrk-, Martins
burg, Denniston, Heading Harrisburg, lial
timore, Cumberland. Scrantnn, Syracuse and
Hulfulo. Whether the grievances complain
ed of were just or unjust it is notour pro
vince, or perhaps yours to determine. It is
sulhcient to know that their wages were re
duced when tim0' were hard, and the coun
try depressed : and they thought they had
cause to take tho remedy into their own
hands. Highlftilly or wrongfully they did
so. As a mere 'strike,' the public had no
immediate connection or privity with it. Re--Training
from labor was the right of each
individual, and when criminal by combina
tion, it was but a mere conspiracy, punisha
ble ai law.
"Put the misfortune of all such great and
combined movement', is their growth into a
tumultuous and public character, csu'ed by
the very multitude and heterogeneous mass
of materials. That which at first was hut
a mere cessation from labor, became an in
surrection or uprising over tho country, bv
men banded together by a common interest
for a common purpose. Such uprisings
must navoa place ot beginning or lirst out
break. This happened iu tho cit of Pitts
burg, where it rose suddenly like a water
spout or a cyclone, small in its first whirl-
lug',butlncreasingasthe lorcesolthepent up
spiritof insurrection found themselves loosed
Irom Ihe bonds of order and social duty. A
mixed antl molley multitude gathered, the
natural concomitant ot the disorder. Wise
ly, or unwisely, we do not say, a military
force appeared upon tht scene. Intention
ally, or unintentionally, by command or
without, it is immaterial which, the work of
death began. It is riot lor us, probably not
now lor you. to determine whose tho fault,
We neither of us possess the attributes of
punitory justice, and can not try the offense.
We now consider the terrible consequences
only which have fallen upon a portion of
the citizenship of the State. Lives were lost
of the innocent and the guilty, millions of
property wero destroyed. Uwners distant
and nesr were involved in a common vio
lence, and a common ruin. Delicate ques
tions of relationship antl liability have aris
en, confined to no narrow limits but co ex
tensive with the residence of distant owners

erty and freights. Put her concentrated
populiiion and force only illustiate moro
forcibly the utter biipotriica and want of
organized power of a rural population, scat
tered over numberless farms, small towns,
ami a wide territory. The city of Pittsburg,
it is iiil, did not its duty in its organized
capacity, though lis best anil most leading
citizens, roused by the fearful danger, met
iu an unorganized form, created committees

whose (dliclals may not have performed their

cent people of Allegheny county and Alle
gheny city, or deprive them ol that just pro
tection which the Justice, conscience, and
welfare of this great Slate owe to them as a
part of its common citizenship.
"This Is no debt which the State is asked
to assume for another. It Is a damage a loss
sustained by owners of properly through the

In no senso does tho county owe a debt

JDI)(1E I'EARSOX PECIDKS THAT THEY CAN
NOT 11E l'All) OUT OF A DIX'EDEXT'S
In settling up the estate of Daniel Hook
er, deceased, a resident of Harrisburir.hU ex
ecutors filed their account at the last session
of orphans' court, in which they took credit
for the paymeut of funeral expenses and
medical attendance during his latt ill
uess, which amounted to about $140. The
balance exhibited by the administrators was
the proceeds ol the sale of real estate be
longing to deceased, sold under nn order
from the orphans' court. The lines against
the real estate wero more than sufficient to
absorb the whole balance. Exceptions were
filed to this item of the account relating to
funeral expenses and medical attendance,
by the counsel for the judgment creditors,
and the question was argued, II. M. Graydon,
Esq., appearing for the administrators and
Ovid F. Johnson, Esq., for the judgment
creditors. Judge Pearson yesterday filed an
opinion in which he decides that the pre
ference given by the act of 1843 to tho pay
ment of funeral expenses and medical at
tendance during last illness applies only to
personal estate if the real estate be encum
bered, end that such debts have not a pre
ference over ll'cns of record. In this case
the court struck out the item of funeral and
medical expenses, because the real estate
was encumbered, and when sold tlio whole
amount would have to be paid to lien credi
tors. This decision is of importance to under
takers and medical men, inasmuch ns their
services cannot be paid for out of the pro
ceeds of the sale of a deceased person's real
estate if the latter be encumbered by mort
gages or judgments sullicient to coyer its
full value and if the dead person is not
possessed of personal property. This point
has never been distinctly decided by the
Supreme Court, though some of their de
cisions tend to that direction. Judge Smy
ser, of the Court of Common Tleas of liucks
county, some years ago decided tho question
tho same way as Judgo Pearson, Altoona
An interesting case, covering the power of
the bhenil to distribute funds arising from
a sale of property, wras tried before Judge
Mayer, at Williamsport, last week, Tho
facts are briefly : In July, 1878, Sheriff
Uastian sold property nf Peter Hertlic, the
amouut realized being about $50,000. Will
iam Weightman, of Philadelphia, held the
tirst and second mortgages upon the proper
ty Bold, but between the execution of tho
first and second mortgages several iudc
ments Sheriff Uastian skipped and paid al
most all the money realized to satisfy the
mortgages, notwithstanding an order hatl
been issued by the court directing the money
to be paid into court for distribution. Tl
case was ably argued by the leading counsel
ol the bar, but Judge Mayer ordered Sheriff
Uastian to pay into court within ten days
suincient monoy to pay tho judgments be
tweeu Mr. Weightman's first antl second
mortgages. Upon failure of the Sheriff to
comply with this order, an attachment is to
issue. About ?18.000 will be required. It
is understood that Sheriff Iiastiau was fully
indemnified by Mr. Weightman before tho
money was paid, aud will, therefore, lose
noming, Muncy Luminary.
We hope to see Mr. Hewitt's Resolution
pass to have the llouse appoint a Committee
to examine into tho numerous steals indulir
ed iu by that body. The members are nald
enough without indulging in peccadilloes.
anu mere is no reason why tho oihcers should
be constantly committing petty larceny
against the State. For instance, we are in-
formed that the Hem of stationery alone,
which is put down at $23,000, was in reality
but $8,000 , the explanation being that $115,.
000 was spent for advertising or proposals to
jurmsntct JNow members are not only
furnished on demand for necessary station
ery, but some get a small quantity for less
than what they are entitled to, and favored
ones carry offloads. This is hut one branch
