The members of the Standing Committee
elected by the people in their respective dis
tricts have impo'taot duties to perform. Nes
lect or failure on their part prevents thorough
organization and entails a heavy Joss. It is
all important that they should select Vigilance
Committees for their districts at once, and re
port their names to the Chairman. The men
chosen should be the most active and intelligent
who oill terve. Work and not complimentt
aro demanded. See that every man is duly
assessed, properly registered, and has paid his
taxes. The registry books are now in the
proper places. Delay in such matters is fol
!y, and so to work at once.
The committee appointed by the House
at Washington to investigate the cause of
business depression of which H. B. Wright
is chairman has closed its labors for the
present and returned home. Tbo committee
has been absent since the 23d of July. It
took some ten days' testimony In Chicago,
four days' In San Francisco and examined a
few witnesses In Des Moines.
A gentleman who accompanied the com
mittee states that the depression of labor
and business, into the causes and remedies
of which the committee was to inquire, was
not very perceptible anywhere on the route,
and the farther West that the committee
traveled the more difficult it became to dls
cover any traces of such depression. At
Chicago there were Communists, Socialists,
Labor Reformers, Greenback theorists and
unfortunate real estate speculators, who bad
their various opinions on the way to improve
society and to bring about the millennium
of the working classes, but their views, if
they ever make part of the committee's re
port, will not add much to the stock of the
At San Francisco the principal topic ot
conversation was the effect of Chinese immi
gration. Farmers, tradesmen, mechanics,
peddlers, miners and worklngmen all agreed
that tbey could not bold their own against
the Chinamen, and (without intending any
thing of the sort) they bore the strongest
testimony in favor of the skill, business
capacity, industry, patience, endurance and
frugality of tbe "moon-eyed lepers," as tbe
Chinese are designated by Kearney and his
followers. In fact, it is the good qualities ot
tbe Chioese that most fault is found with.
Whether these good qualities r so unde
ktrablv that immigrants possessing them
ougbt to be excluded from tbe country is a
question for Congress and tbe government,
but there is certainly little doubt that the
eeling against tbe Chioese among the work
ing classes In California la vary bitter and
very general. Tbe committee paid a short
risk to Salt Lake City, and seemed to be
favorably impressed .with the the results
achieved by tbe Latter Day Saints in build
ing up cities, towns, agricultural and other
industries in a region which, but for them,
night have remained for ages the desert
which tbey found it.
The California Vote.
Hxtr Fsikcibco, Sept. 8. Tbe complete
coust In tbo city gives the following result:
The Worklograea elect the mayor, sheriff,
auditor, treasurer, tax collector, public ad
ministrator, surveyor, district atto. ney,
police judge, one supervisor, ire members
of the board of education and one railroad
cotruaWioner, Tbe Republicans elect tbe
assessor, recorder, coroner, county clerk,
uperintendaot of streets, eleven supervisors,
eveu members of the board of education
and a member of tbe state board of equali
zation, and xe elect Congressman Davis.
The re-election of Congressman Davis give
the Republicans tbe entire state congression
al delegation, Tbe superior judges elected
aro mostly on tickets of all parties. Some
of the officers are elected by majorities so
small that an official count may possibly
result In some changes.
An aged Piute squaw deserted her husband
and children to elope to California with a
white man, Tho Irlbn Kent two younrf and
stalwart Iridium to brine her bark. Their
mls'lon was a success, and. at last accounts
the white people of Carson, Nov., which is
near by, were Interfere jr to prevint the
execution of a sentence that she bo drawn
apart by horses.
Tituv wn.t, not bk coMFonTKli. In the
beginning, the sliver men demanded the
c linage of tw millions of silver dollars a
month. When that was dons thoy were not
satisfied unless the dollars were paid out and
forced into circulation. Now when this is
being done, they object to taking the dollars
themselves, and noe of their organs at
Washington Is clamoring to have them kept
in the treasury, on the ground that there Is
m necessity fur thorn. True this list Is; but
what icill satisfy the Donanzt men? FhUa.
Young Mr, George Kvans of Chenango
county New York is fond of practical jokes.
Old Mr. George Hliapley was good-natured,
nervous and deaf. On Monday afternoon
young Mr. Evans was amusing himself by
firing oft his revolver near Mr, Shaplcy s ear
and seeing tbe old man jump. The last
time he fired he aimed too low. He thought
there was no cartridge in the revolver, but
there was. It went through Mr. Sbaptey's
luug, and, instead of jumping, the old man
tumbled down and died. Young Mr. Evans,
the rural humorist of Chenango county, was
thereupon marched off to the lockup. We
find this interesting story in tbe Utics
Important to Voters.
The next election in Pennsylvania will be
held on Tuesday, tho 4th of November.
Voters who have not paid a state or county
tax within Two years next preceding tho elec
tion (except such as aro between the ages of
twenty-ono and twenty-two years), must pay
such tax one month preceding the election,
that is, on or before Saturday, October 4.
Failure to pay tax in season deprives the
voter of tho privilege of suffrage. If an elec
tor have paid a state or county tax within two
years next preceding the election, or if ho be
between tho ages of twenty-one and twenty
two years, ho can secure his voto by making
proper proofs to the election board by his own
affidavit and that of a qualified voter of his
precinct, though ho be not registered.
Members of democralio state, county and
city committees should see to it that every
voter of our party complies with the law.

Mollis Magnire Seeking Pardon.
Harrisburo, September 6. As the next
meeting of the Board of Pardons approaches,
the list of applications for executive clemency
is gradually increasing. The necessary pa
pers in the caso of Peter McManus and John
O'Neil, whose execution is fixed for the 9th
of October, were filed September 5 with the
recorder ot tho board. The murderers were
both Mollie Maguires, and in 1874 brutally
murdered Frederick Hesser, who served in
the double capacity of Coroner of Northum
berland county and watchman at a colliery.
While in tho engine room he was assaulted
with a large club and other weapons and por
tions of his body beaten into a jelly. Tbo
Supreme Court, at the May term, heard ar
guments for tho reversal of the judgments of
the court which convicted the Mollies, but a
new trial was refused. Application has also
been filed in the caso of Andrew Tracy, who
murdered his cousin in McKean CJunty.
The Crime of Fiends.
New York, Sept 8.-The Herald! t Wilkes
barre (Pa.) special says that Miss Waterman
aged 19, the beautiful and educated daugh
ter of a respectable family, in company with
a sister, went to Denmark camp meeting, in
Susquehanna county, last Saturday week.
The sisters seperated, one going home Sat
urday evening. The other was found on
tbe floor the next night, a raving maniac,
and died Tuesday night. It is believed she
was deceived by false representations to take
a walk with a young man with whom she
had a neighborly acquaintance, and when in
a secluded spot previously agreed upon, she
was set upon by a number of young men
and brutally outraged. It is stated that no
lens than fourteen infamous scoundrels were
engaged in the dastardly act. Tbe jury
returned a verdict of death by prostration.
Warrants were issued for tue apprehension
of the suspected parties. No. arrests have
John Sherman and the Democrats.
In his recent speeches in Ohio, John
Sherman, not content with revamping the
old stuff, distinctly charged that the Demo
crats, after starting out well in the Forty
fourth Congress, had latterly Increased tbe
appropriations, while he and his associates
were engaged in reducing expenditures.
Tbera (s no possible excuse for this falsi
fication of tba reoorj, A comparison of the
appropriations for tha same objects, taking
the last lour years of Republican ascendan
cy In Congress, with the foor past years
when the Democrats had possession of the
House of Representatives, will effectually
expoM this misrepresentation. Here are
tbe figures, token from the statutes at

TO MESSRS. STKINMANAND 1IBN8F.I. EDITORS
or TUB Lancatter Intelligencer.
Gentlemen : I congratulate you and
your readers on the proposed improvement
of the Intelligencer typographically, In con
nection with tbe opening of a new volume.
You could not well add anything to the
earnestness with which R has always advo
cated Democratic principles, and battled for
the Democratic organlsttion, Its force and
power as a representative of Democratic
opinion, and of the best tendencies of the
party, are conceded everywhere, and tliat
business prosperity attends your labors Is
proof positive of tbe fact.
It seems to me that greater activity on tbe
part of tho Democracy of the state to sus
tain and extend the circulation of their
party journals, tbe wide-reaching country
press, as well as the dailies ot the cities, is
demanded by the necessities of the times,
and the grave Importance of impending
political ovrnts, particularly those of next
year. The country -press is the direct local
educator of the people, in current events
and contending principles. The one hun
dred and thirty Democratlce newspapers in
Pennsylvania reach or should reach tbe
voters, whose presence at the polls deter
mines elections and the policies of the states
and nation. It is a business proposition that
the press will be effective, capable and in
fluential, just in proportion as it is liberally
and justly sustained. Without Its active co
operation, our political organization would
loose Its efficiency, discipline and courage
under defeat. As we have had something
more than our share of defeats in Pennsyl
vania, the duty of facing reverses with man
liness and determination has been the touch
stone of fidelity to the party, and in doing
this, and in encouraging the Democracy to
renewed exertions for the cause, the Demo
cratic press has rendered its most conspicu
ous service. Especially in view of the great
battle of next year should the active Demo
crats of every county in the state set about
tbe practical and important work of getting
a Democratic journal luto every Democratic
household of tbe commonwealth , as well as
into the households of as many of our Re
publican and National friends as tbey can
accomplish. It is tbe best mode of election'
eering,as It elevates all efforts in that line to
the plane of reasoning and thinking.
Again congratulating you on the past and
the outlook for tbe future of the Intelligencer,
and wishing it centuries of Democratic life
I am yours truly,
D. O. Barb.
The Thirteenth Regiment of the National
Guard of Pennsylvania which was here on
Tuesday went Into camp at Long Branch,
N. J., on tbe 21st of August. Tbe com'
mander, Colonel Henry M. Bois, at once is'
surd the following orders :
'Uutil otherwise ordered by superior au
thority, tbe Sabbath day will be observed
by this regiment or any part of it in camp
for the purpose of drill and Instruction, as
a Christian Sabbath of rest, quiet ani relig
ious service. Undrus guard mounting will
replace tbe dress guard mount, and undress
parade tbe dress parade, Tbe usual Sunday
inspection will be made immediately after

drill calls will be intermitted. Church call
will sound at 10:30 A. M , when tbe band,
If present with its instruments, the conipS'
nits without arms, will fall iu, answer roll.
call, and be cor.ducltd by their officers to
tbe place selected for divine service.
'This departure from the usual Sunday
routine in tbe army is made possible and
proper by the nature of our service as cUi
zen soldiers. We are oational Ousrdsmen
for the protection and defence of American
institutions, of which t);yre is none more
vitally connected with our history from the
landing of the Pilgrims to tbe preseut time,
or more essential to our national welfare, or
dearer to tbe heart of tbe patriot, than tbe
American Christian Sabbath. Let it, there
fore, be observed by thr frgiment iu such a
manner as shall best prerye Its sacred in
tegrity iu accordance with tbe command of
God, by the (vsaatiou of all work except of
necessity and mercy,'
Accordingly, on Bsbbstb morning, the
Guard was mounted without luuslo. The
whole regiment marched to public worship
by companies, and Dr. S. C. Logap, If
Scranton, tbe chaplain of the regiment,
preached a sermon tj them and to a large
body of visitors present.
In tbe afi ernoon the Sunday school lesson
for tbe day was studied, and iu tbe evening
Dr. L'igau delivered a Itcture on tbe 'Re

The eight gentlemen, five Republicans and
three Democrats, who appear to tako tho
lead in tho race arc (to arrango them alpha
betically so that do hearts may bo broken) i
Thomas A. Bayard, James G. Blaine, Roscoo
Conkling, Georjio F. Edmunds, U. S. Grant,
John Sherman, Allen G. Thurman and Sam
uel J. Tilden. Senator Bayard has bocn de
clared for by political clubs in this city, in
Delaware and by perhaps fifty influential
newspapers. Senator Blaine, who is the only
man in tho list without a profession or trade
unless politics be a legitimate trade is a
popular man and his own candidate. Senator
Conkling is strong becuuso of his State. Sen
ator Edmunds is one of the ablest men in tho
Republican party. General Grant is known
by his boom, as it were. John Sherman is
tho financial and administration candidate,
with what he regards as the pivotal State
wheeling under him like an entry-clerk's chair
as he throws speeches bast, West, North and
South. Senator Thurman is to Bayard as an
elevator full of Ohio corn is to a half-peck of
Delaware peaches, hx Governor Tildeo
owns New York, perhaps, and then pcrliaps
ho doesn't. These are tho big men, and the
stable-full of dark hones are touched off in
the following paragraphs :

In good condition for work. Of course no
body denies that we are a nation with a bis

sible rebellion is a rebellion of bsyonet rule

of New York can make this plain to the In

going to decide tbe contest.
If tbe Syracuse Convention shall put Its
