A WISE LEGISLATOR.
He is successful, becaune he has the manly
courage to rise above all personal motives or
interests and casts his vote and influence on
the side or measures which will contribute to
the well being of his fellow men. The good
of the many, even though It proves injurious
to the interests of the f few, is the maxim of
the wise legislator. But certain men will
never admit the wisdom of this doctrine, any
more than 'some selfiish private practitioners
will admit the superlative value of Dr. Pierce"
Golden Medical Discovery and Pleasant Pur
gative Pellets, because these remedies have in
jured their practice. Of course, no man in
his right senses wll pay a physician $5.00 for a
consultation, a bottle of bitters, a few powders,
and a prescription, when a bottle of Dr. Pierce's
Golden Medical Discovery and a bottle of his
Pleasant Purgative Pellets, both costing but
$1.25, will accomplish Ihe same result viz :
cleanse the liver, and blood, regulate the tone
of the stomach, and impart a healthiul action
to the bowels and kidneys.

We heard a little story the other day about
n doctor not n hundred miles fiom Omngcville,
which proves that doctors don' t like medicine
any better than other people. This doctor
always thought it quite foolish when the
members of his family rebelled against taking
pills and ollen laughed at them: but the day
came when Ihe Dr. had to take a pill nnd if
our story is true, ho got Inughcdat too. When
ho attempted to lake tho pill ho found it as
hard a dost aa others do and made as much
fuss about it. At last his wife out of pity
offered to hide the pill in applo sauco. She
soon offered him a teaspoon of applo sauco
and tho Dr. tried to swallow it, but that hidden
fill was too much and he had to give it up.
But what was tho delight of the family and tho
chagrin of tho good Dr. when his wife
informed him it was only a teaspoon of apple
sauco as she had put no pill in it. This
reminds us of another Dr. story. As Ernest
Sloan was riding over Summer Hill lately, a
woman called to bim, "hold on Dr.," and
immediately came rushing out with a baby in
her arms for him to proscribe for. His ouly
answer was, "I guess you ate mistaken in the
man." "Well I guess I am," she said, and
carried the baby back to tho house.
The National Greenback Labor Convention
met in Furman's Hall, at 2 p. in., Monday
August 11th, 1879, and having been called to
order by Jackson M. Hower, Chairman of the
Counly Committee, proceeded to organize by
the election of J. R. Jamison, of Maine, as
President, and Capt. J. B. Robison,of .Bloomsi
burg, as Secretary.
The credentials and returns being referred to
a committee consisting of R. 8. Howell, A. B.
Herring and N. L. Campbell they reported
that Capt. Uznl H. Ent, of Orange, had receiv
ed a majority of the votes for Sheriff, where
upon be was unanimously declared the nomi
nee of the party for that position. Jackson M.
Hower, of Bloomsburg, was nominated for
Coroner, and Lemuel Kisner, of Pine was nom
inated for Jury Commissioner.
The Committee on platform consisting of Jas.
C. Silvan, Samuel Mnsgrove and Wm. M.
Hartman reported the following platform which
was unanimously adopted :
WnEBEAs, The National Greenback Labor
party has been called Into existence by the
necessities of the Deonle. and is onnoaed tn all
class legislation favoring the few at the expense
ui many. dDU
Whereas, The financial legislation of the
past presents one of the darkest paces in the
financial history of any civilized government,
has stopped industry, made an army of tramps,
crowded the insane asylums, crammed the
prisons and swelled the suicides.
Therefore. We the farmers, mechanics.
laborers and business men of Columbia Counly,
in Convention assembled, having deemed it the
uesi interests 01 our country to separate our
selves from the so-called Democratic and Re
publican turtles, who by their actions have for.
feited the confidence and respect of Ihe people.
do therefore adopt the following platform as
ine exponent 01 our principles.
llemved, That the real Issue before the
American people is Involved in the money
question, which the Democratic and Republican
parties by the laws they have passed, the plat
forms they have adopted, and the candidates
they have nominated, have ignored, and those
parties do not represent the wealth producing
people of the land, but are the servants of a
gigantic money lending power a power that
aiMoma an anu procuces notmng.
J!orl That it la the duty of the govern'
ment to establish a just standard of distribu
lion to labor and capital, bv providing a nure
ly national circulating medium, based on the
laun ana resources 01 toe nation, issued directly
to the people without the intervention of any
system of banking corporations, which money
shall be a legal tender in the payment of all
debts, public antl private, and subject 10 such
restrictions. as Congress may impose.
Kat&Kd, That we demand the abrogation of
an laws tuat uo not bear equally upon capital
anu labor ; ine removal ot unjust technical!
ties. delays and discriminations in the admin
istralion of justice; and the adoption of mea
sures providing for the health and safety of
those engaged in mining, manufacturing and
building pursuits, believing as we do, that
humanity is more precious than'prosperily.
Radml, That the right of the legislature to
regulate and control the railroads and other
corporations by the Stale must be vindicated.
established and maintained as an essential of
the Stale government.
Iltiolml, That we recognize and accept the
piatiorm 01 principles adopted by the malional
State Convention at Altoona, July 15th 1879,
and we dedal e our firm attachment to the
lUxslved. That we heartily endorse the nom
inalion of Peter Sutton, of Indiana county for
estate 1 reasurer, anu pledge mm our hearty
Resolved, That under the National Green
back banner, with these declarations inscribed
on Its tolas, we engage in tne conmct ; and we
earnestly appeal to patriotic men of every class
without regard to parly names, or past differ
ences, to unite with us on terniB of perfect
equality in the struggle to rescue the govern
ment from the hands of dishonest men. and
redeem it from the flood of corruption which
threatens its ruin.

with G per cent, interest, and reports a hand
some surplus to be divided amongst the

the management of Mr. Alden, as well aa it

imo aud that no money should bo spared to
