Friday, .Tuna 10, 1870.
Our Rlati'liiil? Committee at its last wsainn
wisely rufrulnfil I'rnin lii-liitctine; our Dele
gates to tlio next State Convention, a4 to
whom tlioy should voto for as our candiiUto
For Stnto Treasurer. As they will bo on the
spot, and, can compart) views with other
delegates, they will be in better jiOMtion to
niako a choico than a committee which was
mt iuforincd as to candidate? or their merits,
Our choico is Ditiiel O Barr of Plttsbutg.
In 1877 we preforrfd Col. N'oyos fur icaous
that it is not noccssiry now to mention. Mr.
ll.irr iu the fifi-l p'aco has business iUalil!f v
tious that euiiucnlly lit him fur thu office. His
character ai an honest nun and ai an uti
Mvcrvinjr, Democrat, is beyond question. West
of tho Alleghenies our party strength has
becu Mcvlily growiiu, and should bo foster
cd by tho nomination or such a popular can
didate as Mr ISarr.
The insinuation that his nomination would
bo tho succc-s of tho Itandall, Wallace, Huck
slow or other factious is far-fetched. In tho
first place wo do not know that any such fac
tions cxi.-t, and If they do it is about timo to
know that tho party is not going to bo pet by
tho cars on account of nieio personal rivalry.
Our only duly this year i to uominato tho
b 'tt man for tjtata Treasurer, and wo belicvo
that man is Daniel 0. Harr. If nominated,
it is every Democrat's duty to go to work and
try to elect him.
On the morning of September 9th, 187",
tho citizens of Lighlstreet and the surround
ing country wcro startled by tho report tliu'
tho body of a murdered man had been fouud
on tho Drakctown road near the widow John
sou's. It was that of John Vanliew, who lay
there with his head crushed, and a number of
shot in bis body. Circumstances show that
he had been dead for some timo wheu found,
tho body being cold, and tho dew on his bair.
It is probable that ho was shot when on bis
way homo nt a littlo after eleven o'clock the
night before. Ho bad been at Lightstrcet,
and left there with Samuel Crevcling between
ten and eleven o'clock. Mr. Crevcling test!
fied at tho inquest that alter leaving Vanliew
he heard two reports of a gun, which sounded
about halfway between Aim Vauliew's and
where the body was found. He also heard
dogs barking in the direction ol Johnson's
house. It is therefore probable that this
murder was commuted at that time.
A coroner's inquest was held, two arrests
were made but the prisoners discharged at a
h&eas corpm hearing, thero being no evi
dence against them. The County Commis
sioners offered a reward for tho apprehension
of the assassin, and then tho matter dropped.
Tho mystery is yet unsolved.
Whoever committed the deed had a mo
tivo. Thero was no quarrel or sudden heat
of passion, and no ono would have been out
at that time of night with a gun, without the
intention of making some particular use of it
Tho deed was deliberate and premeditated, aud
tho person who did it, knew that tho victim
would be along that way soon, and lay in
wit for him, shooting him down without a
moment's warning. The motivo was not
plunder, as nothiog was taken Irom bis per
son. This murder was cold blooded, and there
is nothing in the dark annals of Molly JIa
Euircism that surpasses it in atrocity. In
sight of his own home, without any appar
ent provocation, an lnotlensivo citizen was
struck down and left to welter in his blood
until death closed his eyes forever, and yet
tho foul perpetrator is undiscovered.
After a few days of excitement tho affair
seemed to drop from tha attention of tho pub
lie, and to day tho body of John Vanliew is
in the grave, tho crimo unavenged and tho
violated law unvindicatcd.
If such things aro permitted to go unpun
ished in this county what security is there to
tho lercs of citizens ? Any man may bo as
sassinatcd in his own door-yard, with impu
nity. We owe it to ourselves to discover this
murderer, and to seo that the full penalty of
tho law is meted out to him.
The County Commissioners with commen
dable spirit have offered a reward of $400 for
the appichension of tho criminal. This
itself amounts to nothing. It will not alone
bring tho offender to justice. The people
must organize themselves into a detective
force, and anyone who knows the slightest
fact connected with tho crime should com
juunicato with tho proper authorities. The
murderer may sleep without fear of detection
but so suro as there is a God in Heaven, so
sure will ho be visited with a just retribution,
It may bo soon, it may bo for years,but "uiur
dcr will out," and John Vanlicw's assassin
will one day ornament a gallows, unless death
shall come before tho avenger overtakes luui
l'arr Dead.
Philadelphia, June 10. Edward Parr,
tho murderer of his daughter, who sank down
in the prisoner's dock in the court room yes
terday from tho effects of poison just after ho
had been sentenced to death, died this morn
ing at ten minutes before six o'clock iu tho
ante-room of tho court house. A number of
eminent physicians from different colleges
were with him all night, but they failed to
restore him to consciousness. All of l'arr" s
immediate relatives are now iu custody, and
a rigid investigation will bo had with a view
of discovering the manner in which and by
whom poison was conveyed to the deccatcd.
The new State Loan of $2,000,000, was
cageily taken on bonds having fifteen years
to run at four per cent, at a premium
$1.18 on tbo average. This not only show
how good tho ctedit of the Commonwealth
Is, but also that tho exaction of moro than
six per cent, on good security, by Uanke, ba
ying Fuuds or individuals, is extortion.

that nowithftanding tho boon of biennial
legislatures aconrdi-d under tho new Consti
tution of tho State, tho existing Ijegislatuie,

ful), will have to be called together again
next winter by tho Guvcrnor. Inquity mado
of well informed metuWs briugs the welcome
intelligence that thero is no real necossity for
extra session noxt year i that tho Governor,
if ho chooses, can get along very well with
out the LcgUlaturo until 1881. So may it
bo. Meanwhile wo shall have an election in
1SS0. Ledger,
In the United States senate on Friday,
Senator Wade Hampton took occasion to
make a nfn-t pertinent and telling remaik.
He said that the south "could not he hiameil
for tnntlng her Interests in peace to those
who 1 1 -ked their lives and fortunes for her
In war" and that "If tho north had In like
manner honored thoe whose who fought her
battle, the legislation of the country would
not be embittered by tho renewal of section
al strife." At this juncture the stalwart
leaders began to glance around blankly for
s iino of their number who have a war re
cord. It may bo well to state that the eyes
of all wcro not turned upon Zacharlah, tho
standard bearer of the bloody shirt.
These aro two of the great evil-t of the
d ly, and we cordially eudnrie the following
sensible remarks from the Patriot,
"It appears thai It is some times necessary
to swear olf other things besides whisky
niiking. A man up In New York state,
ho had lost considerable motisy by endoM
log tho commercial paper of friends.recently
went before a magistrate an 1 took a solem n
ath that ho would from that timo forth
nevermore endorse any paper of a pecuniary
alue. Some man with the "gift ol gab"
ho Is casting about for an easy way to make
living might strike a bonaoza hero by the
organization of a reform movement of this
kind. The reason for signing such a pledge
would be nearly if not quite as strong as
those for signing the temperance pledge.
The endorsement of commercial paper for
frienJs amounts to almost as great an evil
as social drinking. It Is the cause of a vast
amount of financial distress over the whole
country and wo venture to say that statistics
ould show that it produces nearly as many
murders and suicides as the use of strong
Of course there are cases in commercial
transactions and in legal proceedings where
the practice is proper and necessary, but we
refer to the indiscriminate methods now in
vogue. A man may not intend to "stick" his
friend, but unforseen causts may lead to that
Exciting Court Scene.
Philadelphia, June 9. Quite an excite-
meut was caused this afternoon in the court
of oyer and terminer, when Edward Parr,
convicted of the murder of his daughter,was
brought into court to receive the sentence
of death. The prisouer was brought up the
little stairway leading from the loner story
and placed in the criminals' dock to be
sentenced. While thejudge was pronounc
ing the sentence, it was noticed that Parr
placed a bottle to bis lips and drank the
contents, and in a moment fell over. The
court room was at once cleared, and the
apparently lifeless form of Parr conveyed
to an adjoining room. It was stated that he
took a dose of strychnine. Restoratives were
at once applied and medical aid summon
Dr.Chapman and Beveral other pbyslciana
who have been In attendance upon Parr ever
since be was carried out of court, have made
every exertion to restore him to conscious
ness, but at half past 2 o'clock this after
noon Dr. Chapman stated that be thought it
was all up with the prisoner, and that he
did not think he could recover. It is thought
Parr had the poison down in the lining o
his coat, us he had made a threat, it is stated
at the prison, this morning, that be had
something which would prevent him from
being taken to the gallows. Thejudge who
sentenced him said that he noticed that, as
soon as the sentence was finished and when
he had spoke about his soul, the prisoner
seemed to fall back upon himself and be
gan mumbling. Somebody remarked that
lie was saying his prayers, but be soon com
menced twitching and bad to be removed
from the court.
At one o'clock Parr appears to be some
what improved, but it is not thought that
he can recover. Barney and Edward Parr,
bis sons, were arrested on the 9th inst, on
suspicion of having mrnUbed their father
with the poison.
Disgracing the State.
Looking at the utterly disgraceful pro
ceedings iu the Harrisburg House of Rep
resentatives in the last two days, there is
one point of relief that the disgrace is the
work of a minority of the members. It Is
not a majority of tha House that says th
Pennsylvania Legislature shall be a free
field for the operation of bribery, aud that
corruptionists shall go unpunished. Thii
mitigates the humiliation in some degree,
but it does not lessen the gravity of th
damages done to the Commonwealth au
the people. The corruptionists have been
shielded because there were not enough
members with a sufficient sense of duty to
join the majority and vindicate the House
and the State by expelling the men who had
broken the law, the Constitution and thei:
oaths. This failure Is as effective as if th
corruptionists had been acquitted by a unani
mous vote, and is as potent in assuring them
and all uf their stripe of Immunity for the
future that is, all of the future so long as
the people who elect legislators shall choose
men as unscrupulous and as dead to sense of
sworn duty as those who have done this
thing. It is the work of "ring" politics and
machine voting.
The offenders have been protected by a
minority that was within thirteen votes of
being a majority of the whole House.
Eighty-eight members out ol one hundred
and eighty-six who voted declared by their
votes that the corrupt practices of which
Petrotf, Ruraberger and Geo. K. Smith were
reported to be guilty hIi all not be punished
in the Pennsylvania House of Representa
tives by the only penalty within the power
of tho Legislature. There Is the shame,
there the disgrace, there the Irreparable
damage to the public.
It may have been reserved for some such
outrage upon public decency as this Four
Million Riot bill and its corrupt career to
arouse the voters of the State to their dere
liction of duty in going to the polls llko cat
tle driven to ttie hamble,to ratify the nom
ination of any sort of mau for the high
trust of making laws for four millions of
people. Yet who expects otheiwise than
that, when the next election fur members of
the Legi'laturo shall coma around, submis
sive voters will be found following the vaine
old cry, "stick to the ticket," "stand by the
regular nominees ofthe party," Thhj Is the
anchor to windward the wire-pullers of the
machine always rely on ; and It has proved
to be a trusty reliance in many a bard
blow. Le dgcr.
"The tlranJ Army of the llepublic"
It will 13 nliserved by our readers that Just
now tho ltcpublican newspapers or tho coun
try aro full of notices of tho Grand At
my of the llcpublic, which they speak of as
being revived in every direction and establish
ing now "Potts,'1 as they call them, nt every
point. Tho Decoration services this year
woro generally conducted by tho members of
this association, nd there seems to bo a gen
eral arousing of interest in it among its ad
Wc long ago charged that tho Grand Ar
my, wlulo containing among its members
many unvispectitu Democrats, was neverthe
less a spawn of tho Henublican party, and
used in that party's interest. Wo have nev
er yet seen any reason to change our opinion
on this subject, and still believo it to lie n
hcuio of the Republican party to capture
and hold tho votes of tho soldiers. Wo ar o
tho more inclined to this belief from tho fact
that such great efforts are uow being made to
recruit the ranks of the Grand Army, which
for tho past couple of years havo been suf
fered to becomo depleted and thinned, Th t
the year before the presidential lection of
ISM), and this accounts for tho activo inter
est now taken by tho Republican politicians
and leaders in tho Grand Army. They want
to havo it recognized, its ranks filled up, new
'posts" established, and every soldier or sou
f a soldier who can bo deceived, enlisted
ndcr its banners. They hope and expect to
bo ahlo to control its voto for Grant or who
ever tho Republican notuiiiMj for President
may bo, although, as usuai, they disclaim any
political intention In tho matter. Hut as it
was in tho past, so will it bo in the futurc.and
no stone will be left unturned to accomplish
their purpose. They controlled it for Grant
before and they will do it again, no matter
how cunningly they may cover over their ue-
sigus with the cloak of a patriotio purpose.
The Graud Army of the Republic Is undoubt
edly a Republican device, and this is proved
by their efforts to revive it just on tho eve of
a presidential electiou. If there is nothing
political in it, why is there such a stir in the
camp just at this particular time ? Why is so
much wore interest taken in it note than for
the past two or three years?
We have only to say to Democratic soldiers
and Democratic voters, keep out ol this or
ganization. You will be warmly solicited to
join it, aud will be assured that it has no po
litical purpose whatever.but we tell you if you
ato wise you will not allow yourselves to be
thus deceived. There is a political purpose
in it, and that purpose is to gain votes tor the
next Republican oandid.ite fir President.
Any man with half an eye can soo this, when
he takes into consideration the present active
effort to revivo and strengthen it an effort
that is being made onlv br Republic in lead
era. Wo warn our D'luoeiatio friends a gainst
it, and if alter this warning they are foolish
enough to lx deceived, their fau!t will bo
their own. Bellefonte Walchmin.
Killed Uy a Pin.
Miss Sophia Lehrberger died at 325 East
Fifty-fifth street, from the effects of swallow
ing a common brass pin. When the piu was
swallowed, neither she nor her mother nor
siiters have any idea, hut the supposition is
tint she had the habit of putting pins iu her
mouth, and that over a year ago she inadver
tently bulled the bit of metal. In July or
Augu-t of last year, Miss Lehiberger began
complaining of occasional severe pains in the
lower portion of her bowN, on the right side
with sometimes sharp paius iu the back. These
troubles gradually increased until Jin the lat
ter part of September, wheu sho suffered a
violent attack of inflammation ol the bowels.
Dr. J. W. Ranuey, of 17 East Fmtysixth
street was called in and treated the apparent
malady, of the cause of which nobody then
suspectid. Thecase, as ho relates it, then
progressed as follows : The inflammation
of tho bowels was controlled, but then a large
abscess formed in tho right groin, from which
when I lanced it.was discharged a great quan
tity of pus. It continued op-u and discharg
ing, and about a week fiom the time I lanced
it there osuie out through it a haid lump as
thick as a crow quill and about au inch and
half long, which upon examination I found to
be a common brass piu imbedded in some cat
careous substance. Hero is the pin. Where
I have cracked off the chalky shell fiom its
centre and poiot, you see plainly what it is,
When I first saw it, the calcareous covering
over it all was of the thickness that you see
it still is on the head a littlo thicker than a
common quill pen. The abscess continued
opeo, and ten days after the pin appeared
this tack head came out. That was about the
latter part of November last. Although the
abscess developed into u fistulous connection
with the bowels, the you-jg lady grew strong
er, and in ten days alter gettiog rid of the
tack head was able to be about. Two weeks
ago she was attacked with peritonitis, or iu-
flamuittiou of the bowels, and ou the 2d of
June died.
"The autopsy showed that there was an
adhes'ou of the bowels aud the walls of the
abdomen, and through this extended the fis
tulous opening fully as large as a crow quill
perforating tbe intestine. That was the
channel through which the pin and tack head
passed. Those foreign substances bad un
doubtedly passed successfully through all the
convolutions of the ileum or small intestine,
uutil they reached the blind cul do sac known
as the appendix vermiformis at tbe end of
the caecum or large intestine, below the en
trance into it of the ileum, and theie h
lodged. The infiammation caused by the ir
ritation ot their prescnoe commenced at the
entrance of the lieuui, and from that point
tho adhesion. Pins may, aud doubtless some
times do, pass through the body without do
ing any harm, but they are liable to be de
tained iu the cul da sao mentioned, and, in
stead ot passing through the natur
al channel, form for themselves an artificial
channel, as this one did, through the right
groin, with the consequences seen in the pres
ent case. I have met with no such case be
fore in my practice, and know of none re
corded in tho books, though there may be,
Llko results have, however, followed the
lodgment ot cherry stones in tho appendix
vermiformis. I have had numbers of eases
in which needles that had been swallowed
worked themselves out after the lapse of con
sidcrable time, and without any serious inju
ry. They are prone to follow tho line of the
muscle they first reach alter making their es
cape from the intestine, and may come out iu
the most unexpected places and ways. Hut
the beads ou the pins prevent their travelling
so freely, and they are, consequently, more
dangerous." N. Y, Sun,

Washington, IU!., June III, IS70.
VER mix,
Somo surprise Is expressed at tho very
large majority vote by which tho legislative
appropriation hill was passed In the House
nn yisterday. It had been urged iigalnstlhe
bill that Its prnvliniis were not clearly do-
liunl and that it would be dllliciitt ol con
struction. Some member, Democrats as
well as Republicans, were iu favor of tho
vetoed bill, witli tbo repealing section and
appropriations for court expenses omitted,
and there was au cuilearor to havo this sub
stituted for tlio committee bill. Gen. Haw-
ley was of opinion that a sufficient number
f Lemocratic votes could be secured to car
ry a bill to this effect through the House.
In the late Democratic caucus the speaker
f the House proposed and advocated a new
bill biit he was voted down, the caucus
otitic; in favor of a continuation of the
present law with certain additions. Gen,
ltawley finally voted in favor of the com
mittee bill, ns did nil the Republicans. Tho
twenty two opposing volts were cast by
Democrats, some of whom wcro not willing
to favor the bill denuded of the repealing
legislation originally proposed, nnd by
others who objected to the form of the bill.
Mi. Cox refused to vote for the bill giving
as his reason that bis constituents insisted
upon the first stand taken by the party and
wrre unwilling to abate their demands. Tho
Army bill will be brought before the House
by the committee on appropriations to-day
and will be passed immediately. Yesterday
Mr. Ryan, Republican, of Kansas moved to
pass the army bill, as reported by the com
mittee, containing the clause forbidding the
sending of troops to the polls. The Demo
crats moved and carried an adjournment be
cause they were unwilling to allow the Re
publicans to have the eclat of passing their
bill. The supplemental sundry civil bill
containing appropriations tor judicial ex
penses will certaluly be passed as soon as to
morrow and it will probably get through
The Impression generally expressed among
members now is that Congress will adjourn
next Saturday or Monday at the latest. Con
gress is very anxious to get homo, and since
both houses are practically unanimous on
the appropriation bills, iu their present
shape, there will be little or no debate, and
the only work expected will be the routine
of passing the bills. The Senate will take
up the legislative bill to-day, and, it is ex
pected, will get through with the other ap
propriations by Saturday.
Yesterday immediately after adjournment
there was another caucus of Democratic
Senators. It remained in session nearly
three hours. The Warner silver bill was
exhaustively discussed. It was not proposed
to make the bill a "caucus measure," except
to the extent of inBuriug prompt action up
on it, but the discussiou yesterday developed
such immovable opposition to the bill ou
the part of some Senators, and such irrecon
cilable differences nf opinion as to the ques
tion ofexpediency that no proposition what
ever was pushed to a vote aud consequently
the caucus adjourned without takiug any
action and without its members being any
nearer an agreement than when they as
sembled. The speakers in favor of the bill
were Senators Thurman, Beck, Voorhees,
Garland, Maxey, Hereford, Coke, and Pend
leton. Senators Bayard, Eaton, and Ker-
nau made tbe priucipal speeches in opposi
tion to the bill. The merits ofthe bill were
debated only incidentally, there being evi
dently no hope of changing opinions con
cerning tbem. But the question of the
probable effect of its passage by the Senate
in connection with its anticipated veto by
the President, was the subject of very ani
mated discussion.
On tbe one hand it was argued that the
effect would be to give Increased strength to
the Democracy in tho West, and especially
iu the coming Ohio contest, on the other
hand, It was insisted that, aside from the
doubt whether the bill would obtain a ma
jority vote in the Senate, its passage by the
dominant party in that body would tend to
alienate Democratic votes in Eastern States,
and notably in New York and Connect!
It was also earnestly argued iu opposition
to the demands for Immediate action upon
tbe bill that the friends of the bimetallic
system would most effectually promote the
permanent establishment of a double stand
ard In this country by deferring the present
measure until the next session, and thus
avoid an alleged threatened embarrassment
to the efforts already in progress to establish
an International common ratio of values be
tween tbe two precious metals. The indi
cations Iu the caucus were that at least eight
or nine Democratic Senators will vote
against Mr. Coke's pending resolution, and
that It will therefore be defeated.

Owning the largest retail stock of Dry Goods in Philadelphia

we submit that we aro in a position to ofTcr unequaled inducements to all
buyers of Dry Goods. In addition, our store, built by ourselves, ior our
own business, Is conceded to be the most conveniently appointed and the
best lighted business establishment in tho United States. To be able to
examine goods under a perlect light is no small advantage to every pru

In tho face of everything, Wanamaker & Brown increased
their great Clotbin;; business Inst year at Oak 1 lall nearly a quarter
of a million dolljis, and for 1S79 ,uo ncw plans will make the
house moro popular and incicasc tlio business much more.
Eighteen years in the people's ccrvicc at the old corner of Sixth
and Market has taught us how to do the business well.
Whatever may be said, no bouse in the United States sells any-'
thing like so much Clothing at Retail as Oak Hall, and no house
in Philadelphia sells more than a quarter as many goods as
Mr. Wanamaker sells In Clothing alone. Doing this large
business shows the people's regard for our goods, and enables us
to buy cheaply and sell at small profits. '
New patterns have been made this year and ncw styles intro
duced through Mr. Robert C. Ogden (formerly partner of the
famous firm of Devlin & Co., New York), who is now associated
with Oak Hall, and will give his whole energies and valuable
experience to improving the manufacture of our Hoys' and Men's
Clothing. We do not buy Clothing like tho dealers, but make
it cxprcsslv- 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.
Impressions have been erroneously given to the effect that
Mr. John Wanamaker, .!io founded Oak Hall, is not interested in
the old store, and that it docs not have his attention ; on tho
uuiurary, m3 iiwncrsmp t,i n remains unchanged, ami lie has lost
none of his love for it. I'.vcry day finds him tupcrvising all its
departments. Mr. William II. Wanamaker spends his entire time
on the Oak Hall business.
