THE COLUMBIAN AND DEMOCE AT, BLOOMSBURGr, COLUMBIA COl NTT, PA.

When tlie lying Stanton was about to bo

The people have rcvered all this. Thn

Tho Republicans having been hurled from
power by an Indignant people, are now
raislnga howl because frauds upon which
they thrived are being unearthed, and so
far as possible the perpetrators nre being
punished. They complain also because the
Democrats are abolishing useless oilicea
and cutting down the expenses of others,
But their terror and threats are especially
caused by the firm determination of Con
Kress to repeal the jurors' test oath law. By
it men who participated in the war are ex
eluded from federal juries. A man may ait
in Congress, or hold any other office, but this
relic of "reconstruction" times debars Mm
from sitting as a juror if he ever partlclpn
ted In the rebellion. Even Hayes' Post
Master General is debarred by it. The
next point of attack should be the infamous
law for the appointment of Supervisors of
elections. It was ordained for the purpose
of perpetuating Republican rule by force,
intimidation, and fraud. Its machinery cost
the people la 1878 $270,000.
Tbe monstrous power conferred by the
supervisor law is in plain conflict with the
Constitution, which declares, "No person
halt be deprived of life, liberty, or proper
ty without due process of law." Sectlou 6,
622 of the Revised Statutes not only forbids
Interference by any State authority with
"supervisors of election, or either of them,
or the marshal, or his general or special
deputies, or either of them," but provides
that every person who "refuses or neglects
to aid and assist any supervisor of election
or tbe marshal, or his general or special
deputies, or either of them, in the perform
anceof his or their duties, when required
by him or them, or either of them, to give
such aid and assistance, shall be liable to in
stant arrett without proccu, and shall be
punished by imprisonment not more than
two years, or by a fine of not more than
three thousand dollars, or by both such fine
and imprisonment, and shall pay the costs
The attempted exercise of less tyrannical
powers caused our fore-fathers to assemble
at Ruunymede in 1215, and they extorted
from King John Magna Charla which con
tains this noble sentence, " We will sell to
no man, we will not deny or delay to any man
right or justice I Acts less arbitrary than
this caused King Charles the First to lose
his head. Rut this law gives power to low
political hirelings to arrest without warrant,
hearing, or appeal, and innocent men, under
its provisions, are not only deprived of their
votes, but may be imprisoned and fined.
The law being contrary to the Constitu
tion and oppressive, we say to Congress
"Stick," and wipe from our statute book
this blot upon our free institutions, aud the
people will sustain you.
A CRAZE FOU CMXS.-ONK CENT WORTH
ONE llUNUIlKD DOLUltS.
Old American coins are getting very
scarce on this side of the water. Among
those greatly in demand are the cents of 1793.
which belong to the first series of United
States copper coinage, and were coined
this city at tbe old Mint, which was then Io
cated at Seventh and Filbert streets. Anoth
er scarce coin Is the 1787 cent, which was
designed by Benjamin Franklin and coined
in Hartford, 1793 cents are very rare. So
also are the silver dollars made in tbe old
Philadelphia Mint in 1794. One of these
which is safely locked up iu the British Mu
seum cost that institution $1,000. Silver
quarter dollars coined in 1823-27 are worth
$100 each. Silver half dimes, issued from
the Mint in 1802, are also at a premium, and
all efforts to obtain any of them to complete
sets, even at the figure of $100, proved fu
Silver dollars of 1804 are extremely scarce,
ouly five, so far as known, being in exis
tence. Three of the be are owned in Kng
land, and are valued at $1,000 each. Half
dollars of 179G-97 coinage are worth V0,
and the same figure is offered for a 1799 cent
or a half cent of 179G. Notwithstanding
these high prices, collectors say that in tell
in; again abroad they average 100 per cent
profit. They also say that tbe fictitious val
ue of coins has increased 100 per cent dur
ing the last five years, while the tendency I:
stMl upward. Kxpeiimental coins are great
ly in demand, and the goloid dollars, which
were recently coined as a sample for the
Government, are worth $25 to the collectors,

At tho Opera Houo on Wednesday evening
of last week nn immense crowd attended tho
exercises of tho Frccdnicii's Aid Society. It Is
estimated that there were otleat fourteen hun-
ilred people present. During tho progress of
tho exercises thcto was loud applause, damp
ing of feet, fcrcams and whistling. Binco
then, many visitors havo expressed their sur
prise nnd amazement at such conduct in n ro
ligous meeting, and the impression has gono
abroad that tho pcoplo of this town nro n dis
orderly act of rowdies who do not know how
to behavo thtinsclvcs. We regret that thero
should have lieon any occasion for tho numerous
rematks of censure and disapprobation that
havo been called out by tho occurrences of
that evening Ulooni'bnrg has nlways enjoy
oil tho reputation of being a quiet, law abi
ding town, with strong religious tendencies,
and it is unfortunate that anything occurred
during tho Confcreno to givo n different im
pression, lliit whilo it is a fact that tho con
duct of aomo was disgraceful, wo cannot allow
tho charge against our general refinement and
propriety In pass by unnoticed without n
word in sclfdefcnsc. In tho first pl.ieo thero
was an unusual inducement for a largo attend
nnco. A company of co'ored vocalists was
announced to Iks present and sing a number
of plantation songs. No admission feo was
charged, the doors were open to the world
without any retrain!, and the consequence
was that the gallery and some other parts of
thu hall contained an clement of toeicty that
cxits in almost every place, but which docs
not oltcn inako Its appearance at public en.
tcrtainmcnts, because they are prevented eith
er by admission feo or by nolico regulations,
In the second place, tho inoJting was not n.
religious meeting. There were threo speech
cs made, nnd whilo that of Col. Jackson was
n fair, practical address, tho other two were
simply repetitions of tho old radical abolition
speeches of twenty years ago. Tho meeting
was therefore uiado a political gathering, by
the character of tho remarks, and the noisy
part of tho audience lost sight of the fact
that they were attending tho exercises of a re
igious organization. The applauso was first
started on tho lloor by members of tho confer'
enco and others who do not by any means
belong to tho rabble. This gave the gallery h
cense, aud they added to it by screams and
whistling. We do not wish to bo understood
as reflecting on tho conferenco, as it, as a
body, was not responsible for tho speeches,
and we know that numbers of the clergy were
indignant, aud by no means approved of tho
rcmarka of tho speakers. Political .speeches
arc all right at tho proper time and place, but
they aro entirely out of order during tho scs'
sions of a religious body.
Thero were no police icgu'atlons at tho rial1
that night. If a few officers had been cnga
god by tlioso whoso duty it was to make such
arrangements, and if tho speakers had not
changed tho character of the meeting them
selves, and if tho brethren in front had not li
censed the galleries to applaud by example,
no one would havo had occasion to say that
they were amazed at tho rough character
of a Bloomsburg audience.
Finally, as a matter of fact, fully one-half
of the audience was made up ot members of
tho conference, and pcoplo from the neighbor
ing villages and country. It is therefore not
fair to pay that all the noise was mado by the
Bloomsburg half. We are willing tobecharg'
cd with what belongs to our account, but uu
der all the circumstances it appears that when
the blame for the disorder of that night is
justly distributed, tho citizens of Bloomsburg
come iu only for a small share.
The sermon of Bishop R. S. Foster of the
M. E. Church at the Opera House on last
Sunday morning is spoken of on every side
as one of the ablest ever delivered in this
town. The house was crowded to excess,
and hundreds were disappointed by not be
Ing able to obtain admission. That tbe
Bishop is broad and liberal in his views, if
lie be the same man, we gather from tho
following extract which we clip from nn ex
''Preaching recently in the North End
M. E, church at Boston, Bishop Foster paid
a high tribute to Catholics. Among other
things he said : "I have a great deal of re'
spect for Roman Catholics and the Roman
Catholic Church, and the feeling becomes
stronger as I grow older. I do not think we
can afford to criticise Catholics until we dis
play at least equal zeal in the service of the
Master. Who are they whose feet go clatter
ing by our bouses these cold winter morn
ins before daylight ? Who are they who
fill their churches to worship God while we
are in our beds ? Who throng our streets
prayer-book in hand, reverent faces, aye,
and perhaps with as reverent hearts as any
of you bear 7 They are zealous, faithful
Catholics, who believe in the truth of their
Church, and feel that through it alone they
can worship the God whom they (Var nnd
love. To what church do those self-sacrificing
communities belong that toil from morn
lug until uight lor the good of God's peo
pleT Who are these who come herefrom
foreign lands, poor aud strange, with noth
ing but a spade, and have erected temples
that put us to shame 7 Isn't the poor ser

On tho first of next mouth an opportunity
will be given to try experimentally a kind of
GovernmentSavings I und. The certificates of
djpo'it of tho denomination of $10, to bo
issued then and thereafter, bear interest at
the rata of four per cent, per annum, but
they do not fully answer tho purpose of a
savings fund, because they aro uot directly
redeemable, but may bo converted into four
per cent, bonds. Ten dollars having been
invested in a certificate, tha holder, to realize
upon it, must tell it at its market value, or
having five of them, convert it into a bond,
and sell that at its market value. The certifi
cates will, however, bo very uselul to those
who desire to buy bonds out of small savings
for a permanent investment. They can by
mcausofthe certificates gaiu four per cent,
interest on each ten dollars saved, instead of
hoarding the money witlnut profit to them-i-elves
until they obtained fifty dollars. There
is besides a real advantage to the p or man in
having his small savings put where, with
perfect security that ho can recover, thero is
still ulittlo obstruction io the way of his doing
so. Tills prevents him from wistiuj his sav
ings. The certificates may do the tamo for tho
spendthrift man that the little toy savings

audits pennies; teach him the advantages of
self-denial and the truth ofsomo old proverbs.

Tho last meeting of tills kind was In 1871.
Alter tho late war, from 1S67 to 1871, eajh
year witnessed such gatherings fur counsel
and concurrent action, These meetings were
followed by earnest appeals for the suppres
sion of the license system, and the enact
ment of prohibitory laws, which resulted In
the passage of n Local Option law, by the
L-gWalureyf 1872 -intended In 1873.
Embracing thn opportunity thus alforded,
the electors of forty-two of slxtyslx coun
ties, voted agalii-t llcene. As results ol
right law and right action, peace, prosperity

creaso of 22 Distilleries and 205 Breweries,
in this stale, from 1873 to 1875. The pto
ceo ings of tho Beer Brewers' Congress for
1875 say, "The Local Option law of Penn
sylvania reduced thu Breweries" In that stato
from 500 In 1873, to 31(1 In 1871," nml de

in 1S74. "Very severe they nay, is the
injury which the Brewers havo sustained lu
tho so-called temperatico states." "Thero is
mi doubt they continue, that, tho temper
ance agitation and prohibitory laws are the
chief ciiuscs," etc.
We all remember that families and com
munities pro'pered as tho manufacture and
sale of liquors diminished under Local Op

ho streets, and Irroligion nro thus again
shown to be Inevitable sequences of liquor
selling, and that the latter rises in power for
evil just in proportion as it is able to secure
tho protection of law.
Without animadverting upon anyone, we
shall be credited when we say that it was
an evil day nnd a wicked blow against the
bestjnterests of our state, when, against the
protests of thousands of petitioners, and
without re-submission to the people, the
Legislature and Executive repealed that
law, and remanded those no-license districts
back to a rejected license law. The tyranny
of this act is inoro apparent when we re
member that no convention of the people,
either political or non-political, asked for
such au overthrow of the popular will,
though large and earnest conventions, nnd
thousands of petitioners protested against
such action. Thus, evil triumphed 1
But, if we do our duty, "the triumphirg
of tho wicked will ha short." That power
which frameth mischiefbyalaw," shall be
overthrown I With the evil comes this
good : we can coutrast the two years of no
license, with the three that have succeeded

value as n law.

In the committee making problem, a thank-
ess task In which he will plono and offend
everybody, the question Is, what next 7 The
wires may tell before this letter reiches you,
but there is nn answer to the question, at
this end nf tho line, nt the present writing.
The joint caucus nf the now politically con
cordant legislative bodies will agreo upon a
business programme fir tho session. At
present the Senate Is disposed to adjourn as
aoon as the bills, for which the extra session
was called, are passed. The House, on the
contrary, seems disposed to plunge Into gen
eral legislation and revise and expunge gen
erally. A'Ummer in Washington lias no
terrors for members from Memphis, New
Orleans and thereabouts, ao thev are in fa
vor of revising the tarilf, amending the In
ternal revenue Uw, and inflating the cur
rency. Many believe that Congress will
remain In sf sslon all summer. There Is great
newspaper clamor for an early adjournment,
but it is doubtful whether the American vo
ter is at the bottom of it. Members of
Congress are paid by tho year, and there
would seem to be no reason why they should
not make bills, motions, amendments, rise
to points of order, nnd personal explanation
all through the summer. If members of
Congress were paid only for the time they
are at the Capital and attending to legitl
mato congressional business, the public
treasury would save money, and somo mem'
hers would get less than half their salary,
If Congress really wishes to pass a useful
law let it enact a bill appointing a time clerk
who shall keep a record of the time of each
member and pay him only for the time that
he is attending to the public business. The
millionaire senator from Neyada, who was
present in the Senate, if I am not mistaken
only sixty five days during the four years
since he was elected, had the effrontery and
dishonesty to draw his pay for the full time,
amounting to more than $20,000, and includ
ing $125 fur stationery. There is a law on
the statute book to this effect :
"The secretary of the Senato and the ser-
eant-at-arms of the House, respectively,
shall deduct from the monthly payments of
each senator, member, or delegate tbe
amount of his salary for each day that he
has been absent from the Senate or House
respectively, unless Mich member or dele
gate asigus as the reason of such absence
the sickness of himself or some member of
his family." Now, will some one sue the
Sergeant-at-arms of the Senate for money
illegally paid ?
tuesday the 20th, inst, will be remember
ed In the Senate for Its lively interchanges
of rhetoric, parliamentary of course, but
verging on the language of Billingsgate,
Senator Blaine said to Senator Hill : "don't
be childish," and Senator Eaton told Sena
tor Blaine that his talk was babyish. All
this was on the subject of electing a secre
tary, sergeant-at-arms, and other officers of
Democratic precedents and proclivities to
tie ollices that have been held by Republi
cans. Theso officers are about one hundred

On Monday, Iu the rooms of Representa'
tive Kelhy, tne Greenback Congressman
held a caucus in which they agreed to vote
with the Democrats for the repeal of the
test oath, and tbe law allowing the soldiers
to be sent to polling places, and for modi
fyiug the supervisors law. The Greenback
era hope that their financial schemes will be
supported Tiy a sufficient number of Demo
cratic votes to give them "the balance of
poner," and their fraternization with Dem
ocrataon political questions will be diplomat
ic and with this expectation. A sub-corn
mittee nt the caucus was appointed to pre
pare a bill authorizing the issue of millions
of greenbacks, tbe redemption of United
States bonds in legal terders, and, In other
respects, to carry out the plans of the Na
tional party. Whatever may be the policy
of the two great parties, with regard to the
length nf the session, it is plainly the inten
tlon of the Grcenbaekers to contend for
more paper money, "if it takes all summer;'1
aud, if the majority shall decide to adjourn
after passing the appropriation measures
they will endeavor to foster their financial
bill to one of the appropriation bills and
pass it through. The Grcenbaekers will
doubtless be able to form a coalition with
some men in both parties who have similar
views, but the strength of the coalition can
not be determined until it is tested by actual
O A. 8.
In tho general appropriation bill now before
tho House at Ilarrisburg tho sum of $540,000
is appropriated for the payment of the ex
pen.-es of tho Legislature for 1879 ; for the
pay aud mileage of members, for tho pay and
mileage of tho clerks and other employcsof
both houses, for postage stamps for tho oieni
bers and clerks, and for postage ntf the Leg
niii're Record. This sum of $540,000 is tho
outsido figure ; that is, it is a sum sufficient
to cover all the pay and expenses of the mem
bers for a session of one hundred and Gfty
days, the utmost limit all iwel. It is at the
'ruto of $3,G00 a day for every day, including
the threo or four days of each wtek that they
do not sit. Nobody Is ridiculous enough to
supposo that it could not have done
the ono hundred days of the regular session
all that was required, and an adjournment in
that timo would save the State $180,000. Io
stead of doing this, however, it generally pro
(era to waste timo discussing ths reduction of
salaries of Stato officials, witli tho alleged de
sire of saving fifteen or twenty thousand dol
lars n year. The imitation statesman knows
his business. Tima,
Tho Republicans are liorriQeJ at tho poiil
Lility that the Democratic Congress may attach
to tho appropriation bills, clauses rcpealiog
the outrageous laws creating I'ederM Super
vi-tors ot hlections aim establishing a test
oath fir jurors. Inasmuch as these measures
were passed by attaching them to appropria
tion bills, there should bo no Hpicaling if tlioy

audiences were generally large, nnd at times

ion) Church, and closed tho evening nf Fob,
9th, having preached 21 times, and baptized
eighteen penitent believers, nnd ono reclaim
cd. Wo effected a temporary organization of
a Church of Clirlbt at this point of upwards of
35 or 40 members. Silas W. McIIenry, late
County Commissioner was appointed leader,
and a good religious sentiment generally es
tablished in the community. There aro scv
cral others at this point who havo declared
their intention to go forward in obodience soon,
My next appointment was at Cambra, Lu
zerne county, where I baptized four, making
fifty-nine in all since January 5.
I will (D. V.) begin a series of meetings at
Benton, March 30th, and hopo to report
good work for that place. Hoping to hear
from tho ministers generally, and that the
Lord will bless you in every good word and
work, I am, Yours fraternally,
