The .V. 1. Sim pertinently says :
Seventy-eiit,ht year ago the Legislature ol
New York, foreseeing that the libertic of
the people must be endangered if troop were
permitted at the poll, enacted the follow
"An act for regulating election, pa'sed
March 21, 1S01.
"Section 18. No officer or other person
shall cull out or order any of the militia ol
thl (jtatc to appear or exercise on any .lay,
during any election to be held by virtue ol
tlii act, or within ten days thereof, exeppt
in canof invasion or Insurrection, on pain
of forfeiting the sum of JoOO'fjr every meli
otfence, to be recovered by any person who
shall sue for the same, with costs, tho one
moiety of such penalty to hi own use, and
the other moiety thereof to the use of the
people of this State."
Gov. John Jay did not send an Insolent,
dictating menage to the Legislature, com
plaining that it abridged bis powers as
Chief Executive of the Suite. He signed
the bill and it became law and a proper
law it Is.
Snc. 5 of the Declaration of nights in the
Constitution of Pennsylvania says: "Elec
tions rluill be free and equal ; and no power,
civil or military, thall at any time interfere to
prevent the exercise of the right of suffrage."
The Wolf investigation at Ilnrrisburg has
gone far enough to show that a deliberate
and organized effort was made to buy up the
Legislature of Pennsylvania to the support
of a bill providing that the State should as
aume the payment of the real nnd alleged
losses caused by the Pittsburg riots in the
summer of 1S77. It has also been shown
that the Individual described as the "King
of the Roosters" was the head and manager
of a movement, the nature of which involv
ed proficiency in the art of Addition, Di

elsewhere, the bribery, or attempted bribery,
of legislators, i a crime. Are the criminals
in this case to go free because they arc
wealthy and influential, or will they be giv
en an opportunity for meditation and re
pentance in the cells provided for convicted
criminals? The laws of Pennsylvania are
as a rule, severely enforced against petty and
friendless offenders. It remains to be seen
whether the King of the Boosters and bis
gang can evade the punishment thy have
richly earned. A'. ". Sun.

The Negro exodus to Kansas has been
stayed. Political agents and interested
steam-boat companies started the movement,
and for a time the example was contagious.
But the negro cannot compete with the
northern emigrant in Kausas, and it is, no
charity to induce him to , emigrate to that
land of grass-hoppers. If be will work, he
can get employment in the South; if he will
not work, there i no philanthropy in our

people of Kansas want him, they should
foot the bill. It feems to us that a little
charity extended to the fullering masses of
the north would be more appropriate.

birre Coal Company wa burned to the ground
at an early hour this morning It will bo re
membered that a fire caused by au explosion
of ga has been raging in this shaft since the
7 tli iustant. Tho origin of this morn'ng's
conflagration is attended with considerable
mystery, but the perioral belief is that it was
caused by the accidental ignition of the gas
which has been issuing from the shaft iu
great volumes since the explosion at tho time
mentioned above. Tho original cost of erect

$25,000. Tho breaker was insured for $-19,-000.
WILL THE PEOPLE HEED 'I
To tho offico bolder, demagogue and scoun
del "words of wisdom" would bo fruitlessly
addressed. Hut let a mechanic, workingman,
or farmer ponder tho following from the
N. Y. Sun, an independent journal :
Tho pending bill appropriate in round
numbers twenty-seven millions of dollars fir
tho support of tho army during tho next fis
cal ycir. This army consists of twenty-fivo
tliousaud luen.a large proportion of whom are
not citizen of tho United States, and are not
in any manner or form identified with the
welfare of this country. They are mere ad
venturers, picked up at recruiting stations,
from whom no other oath is required than
obedienco to tho orders of their superior of
ficers. Plainly speaking, they are, in the
main, nothing hut imported mercenaries.
Each soldier costs tho people about eleven
hundred dollars a year, besides being housed,
fed with tho best, and well taken care of iu
other respects. What number of skilled la
borers, average farmers, or good mechanics
get in these times eleven hundred dollars a
year, even exclusive of rent, subsistence, and
the like, which tiic common soldier docs not
pay ? Look at the matter practically, for it
directly concerns every woikingman. Tho
highest form of mechanical fki!! dees not
command over $3.50 a day, and, to get thai,
tho woiknian inust bo exceptionally able. The
average is little above one-half that wages,
but we take the best for au illustration.
There arc" but three hundred and nine
working days in the year, excluding Sundays
and national holidays. Now, if u first rate
mechanic should work every day in tho whola
year without interruption, and have no de
duction for lost time, sickness in his family,
or accidents, ho would enru just $1,031.50 at
$.'1.50 a day, auj from that sum ho would
have to houo his wild and children, and
clotho them and feed Ihcui. Brcklayers.stone
maons, painters, carpenters, and a number of
other trades, even in prosperous timcs,cannot
work regularly throughout the year. They
are fortunate in tho present period of distress
to find employment for one-half or one third
of tho year.
Tho law thus not only makes tho coudition
of the regular soldier, who is mostly an alien,
au i has no tic to bind him here, and no
knowledge of or care for free institutions, not
only far better than that of the aveiage citi
zjn, whether fanner, mechanic, laborer, or
professional, but it stations him at tho polls
on the day of election, which may bo callod
the poor man's day, and places a bayonet iu
his hands to control the billot. This is tho
exact application of tho existing system, and
has been illustrated over and over again in
many of tho States. It was this bruto force
that stood behind tho conspiracy to steal the
Presidency in IS7l),and helped to consummate
tho fraud at Washington.
History is full of warning as to the downfall
of republics. Corruption and oxtravagance
first sap the moral foundations, and then an
army of meicenarics complete tho work. In
his iu( morable oration ou the completion of
the Bunker Hill monument, Daniel Webster
described tho ptcsent situation with almost
tho spirit of prophecy in those striking words:
"Quite too frequent resort is rnado to mili
tary f'oico ; and quite too much of the sub
stance of tho people is consumed in maintain
ing armies, nor for def'euco sgainst foreign
aggression, tn( for enforcing obedience to do
mestic authority, Standing-aruiies aio the op
pressive instruments for governing the people
in the hand of hereditary aud arbitrary mou-
archs. A military republic, Government
founded on mod elections like that of Iloyos
Lb. and nupKrted only by the sword, is a
move indeed, but a retrograde aud disa.-tious
movement, from the regular un J old fashioned
"If men would enjoy tho blotsinga of re
publican government, they must govern them
selves by reason, by mutual counsel and con
sultation, by a scuso and feeling of general
interest, and by the acquaintance of the Mi
nority i' the will of the majority, properly ex
pressed a by the repeal of the army at tho
polls Ed , and above all, the military must
bs kept, according to the languago of our bill
of rights, iu strict subordination to the civil
authority. Wherever this lessuu is not learn
ed aud practiced, thcro can bo no political
freedom, Abiurb, preposterous is it, a so-fT
and a satiro on U'reo forms of constitutional
liberty, lor frames of government to bo pro
scribed by military leaders (like Graut aud
Slieiuian Kl., and the right of suffrage to
be exercised at the point of the sword."
When Daniel Webster gavo utterance to
these American sentiments, tho couutry was
at peace us it uow is, and the regular army
was little moro than a third of its present bum-Ler,

For this tho Commonwealth is indebted to
Asa Pucker more than to nny other person
to hi far-seeking rngacity when the Lchkdi
Valley Hallrnad wa lingering on paper a a
thing without lile to his abounding faith
that tho rich icsoiiices of tho Val'ey in coal,
lumber, slate, manufactures, nnd other arti

est courngo to his industry, singleness of aim,
fidelity to purpo'o aud unswerving integrity
of character. Thesj are the qualities that
made hiui so successful, nod to which his fel
low citizens aud lh Stato owt so much.
To theso qualities, which aro frequently
found iu company with austere manners in
other men, Judge Packer uuited gentleness
of demeanor, placidity of disposition iu times
of anxiety excitement and emergency, con
siderate thouhtfulnoss and charity for the
temptations in tho way of erring and mis
guided men, and broad generosity and liber
ality iu the bestowal of hcncvwlcucc. It is a
rare thing to find a man at once so gentle aud
firm as hu was so amiable iu discussion and
yet so immovable after his mind was made
up Hi ii ental viion was of the clearest,
and his will was most inflexible.
Betweou the young lucchnn'e from Con
nccticut who wandered into tho Susquehauna

with his knapsack and kit ot tools, sicking

centuty there is tho who o span of Ameri
can possibilities ; there is tho whole story of
an American fortune, and of the success
which was duo to thrift, pal ience, toicsight,
and, above a'l, character. The story of Judge
Packer's life is better than a romance. Op
portunity of no common order was his, it is
tru, but how many other striplings of Yan
k e or Pennsylvania growth who wero on the
ruad ho travelled by, had the discernment to
the opportunity in the fust place, tho fru
gality and hard endurance to giasp and bold
it, aud the rugged truth of character that in
duced men to h'dd fast by him when disas

was the uicati of turning his attention to his
gnat educati nul work. The problem of the
"strike," which ennfmnt tho best minds of
ciipitali-ts and laboring men today with its
costly and menacim? possibilities, was tho
cori er stone of Lehieh University. Long
shall the story t o remembered of that sccno
on the river when the striking boatmen of
the Lehih Canal with their boats wero col
lected on tho pool of the Lehigh river, above
the dm at Kaston, with all the uncontrolled
passion and disorderly exesses that accom
panied tho ' strike" in the coal regions.
Tudirn Packer, himself a boatman of a few
years back, in the full confidence of his kindly
fetlings and his knowledge of their thoughts
and need, went to them for a friendly talk
on the situation. He had no fear of his life
in meeting this excited crowd, although, from
personal experience, he knew the temper of
theso turbulent men. They would not listen
to him, but seized him and flung him into
the river Home men would have accounted
it a life long grudge and an added reason for
severity in pursuing the mob leaders to pun.
ishment for this nutrairo. But the perfect
teuipor of Judge Packer viewed this "mob
baptism" differently, it was an outburst of
passionate ignorance, ho reasoned, and his
answer to tho outrage was a great Free
School. It would tako a generation to dis
lersft the ignorance, but tho rising generation
should have the benefit of all that free tui
tion and the wiso disposal of his wealth
should give it.
For many years Judgo Packer has been the
President as well as the largest owner of the
Lehigh Valley Railroad, and no company has
possessed a higher or safer order of executive
ability in its directing head. His manage
ment has been skillful, sagacious, prudent,
and eonspieious for Its fidelity. In his official
staff he was surrounded by men like himself
holdbg the same views of official duty. As
a consequence, there has been no wreck about
that road, no charges of inalfeasanco or mis
management, and no scandal. In all respects
he has been a model railway chief, and his
good influence so thoroughly pervades tho
organization that it must remain tho ruling
influence fur years to come.
Judgo Packer's charities ond acts of be
nevolenco to individuals and to many insti
tutions wero very large, for his heart and
hand were always open to tho call of suffer
ing, for purposes of relief and for the promo
tion of auy good work for either private or
public welfare. His crowning act of Leievo
lencc, however, is the foundation and endow
ment of Lehigh University, the early motive
for which has just been mentioned. Tho im
mediate object is to furnish frco of cost to
young men of talent and ambition a place for
a collegiate education cf practical character,
such ns can bo turned to account in the more
important walks of professional and business
life peculiar lo our Stato in our day.
To this end ho has expended to this time
in the ciecliou of tho commodious and spa
cious buildings of the University, in the en
dowment of its Chairs and Professorship,
and in its general maintenance, tho munifi
cent sum of a million ar.d a half ol dollars.

Rights of Juries.
At the pr.sent session of the Supreme
Court nt Harrisburg Chief Justice Shuts
wood delivered an opinion which is inter
esting and important to both lawyers and
hotel-keepers. The history of the case is
briefly this: At tho June sessions of 1877
of the Montgomery county Criminal Court
Francis M. Kane, a licensed inn-keeper of
Norrlstown, wa Indicted for selling liquor
on election day preceding that term, nfter
tho close of the polls, and after two trials
was Anally convicted and sentenced to pay a
fine of J200 by Judge Henry P. Boss. A
writ of error to the Supremo Court was
thereupon taken out, tho main points of the
defendant being that "election clay" does
not include the whole period of twenty-four
hours, but merely the period from 7 A. M.,
the opening of the polls to 7P. JI., the close
of the polls, that th e jury are the judges of
tho law and the fact. Argument was had
before the Supreme Court and the opinion
wasdelivered by Chief Justice Sharswood. On
the first of the two points mentioned he said
they had no doubt the Court below were
right in saying that the word "day," as used
in the eleventh section of the act of April
12, 1875, includes the whole twenty-four
hours of the day upon which an election is
held. Judge Boss declined to affirm the de
fendant's point that the jury in the case
were judges of the law and the facts. He
admitted that the law wa as stated ou this
point until tho adoption of the new Consti
tution, iu 1873, and the legislation in pursu
ance of it which gave to defendants in crim
inal cases a writ of trror to the Supreme
On this point Judge Boss was overruled,
Chief Justice Sharswood, in bis opinion re
versing the judgment and awarding a new
tiial, say :
"It has been strongly contended that
though the jury have the power, they have
not the right to give n verdict contrary to
the instruction of tho Court upon the law j
iu other words, that to do so would be a
breach of thcii duty and a violation of their
oath. The distinction between power and
right, whatever may be its value in ethic,
in law is very shadowy and unsubstantia'.
He who has legal power to do anything has
the legal right. No court should give a
binding instruction to a jury which they
are powerless to enforce by granting a new
trial if it should be disregarded. They may
present to them the obvious considerations
which should induce them to receive and
follow these instructions, but beyond this
they have no right to go. The argument In
favor of their taking the law from the Court
Is addressed very properly ad vcre cueidlam.
The Court is appointed to instruct them.and
their opinion is the best evidence of what
the law is."
The Chief Justice further says that It was
the opinion of the founder of this Common
wealth and of his friends nnd followers that
juries are judges of the law and the facts,
and cites a few authorities on the same point.
After referring to the fact that President
Judges have often been overruled by Asso
ciate Judges not learned in the law, and
whose opinions have in many easis been
concurred in by the Supreme Court, the
Chief Justice concludes as follows : "The
power of tlie jury to judgo of the law in a
criminal case is one of the most valued se
curities guaranteed by the bill of rights.
Judges may still.be partial and oppressive as
well from political prejudices, aud when a
jury urc satisfied that this is the case, it is
not oiily their right but their duty to inter
pose the shield of their protection to the ac

Tn the faco of everything, Wanamakcr & Brown increased
their great Clothing bus incss last year at Oak I Ir.ll nearly a fiuarter
of a million doll .is, and for 1S79 the new rUns will make the
house more popular and increase the business much more.
Eighteen yean in the people's service at the old corner of Sixth
and Market has taught us how to do the business well.
Whatever may be said, no house in the United States sells any-thin-
li.:e so murh Clothing at Retail as Oak Hall, and no house
in lhiladclplua sells more than a quarter as many poods as
Mr. Wanamaker sdls In Clothing alone. Doing this larre
business shows the people's regard for our goods, and enables us
to buy cheaply and sell at small profits.
New patterns lnvo been made this year and new styles intro
duced through M-. Robert C. Ogdcn (formerly partner of the
famous firm of Devlin & Co., New York), who is now associated
with Uak Hall, and will give lus whola energies and valuabb
experience to iniprov r'; the manufacture of our Boys' and Men's
Clothing. o do n..t buy Clothing like the dealers, but make
it expressly for our own sales. The Spring stock is splendid,
and no other make of goods, so far, have as much merit, or are
sold as cheaply.
