The members of the Standing Committee
elected by the people In their respective dis
tricts have important duties to perform. Neg
lect or failure on their part prevents thorough
organization and entails a heavy loss. It is
all important that they should select Vigilance
"Committees for their districts at once, and re
port their names to tho Chairman. The men

This year Ben Butler has determined to
run for Governor of Massachusetts on bis
own hook, and entirely on State Issues. He
has indomitable pluck and energy, and tho
corroptionists in office fear his advent to the
Gubernatorial chair. So far he has been
endorsed by the Workingmen's '.Party. At
Worcester, on Wednesday, the Butler demo
cratic convention was called to order at 11:20
by Alonzo S. Lynde, chairman of the state
central committee, and at that hour the body
of the ball was filled. John H.Tarbox was
nominated presiding officer. Tbe motion
was unanimously carried. As ha appeared
upon the platform there was a round of
applause and cheers.
lax. Tar box addressed tbe convention on
the local Issues of tbe day. He declared
that Butler was the choice of the democratic
party of Massachusetts for governor. He
reviewed tho action of tbe old state com
mittee. Tbe responsibility ot the demo
cratlc division Is not upon us. We falter at
no word or syllablejof tbe creed aa the great
teachers of democraey expounded It, and as
recent national councils of the party have
applied it to public questions. We stand
by tbe Jefiersonian doctrine of a sovereign
union of sovereign states absolute national
supremacy over all subjects within thecoo
stitutional prerogative of the federal govern'
meat and state supremacy as absolute over
all other objects of legitimate governmental
cognizance. We Insist that states rights
does not antagonize or weaken tbe just
authority , dignity or needful vigor of the
nation, but sustains and supplements it,
while conservative of public liberty. We
deny that the doctrine of local sovereignty,
as maintained by the democratic party, Is
akin to secession, or that tbe rebellion was
Its offapriog. The rebellion was not a con.
flict of political ideas or organized forms,
but the collision of diverse Boclal orders
and moral lroes which could not dwell
together In peace. Secession is dead ; the
lite of the republic demanded it. (.State
rights survives; the welfare of tbis republic
needs it. We are for a free ballot-box un
shadowed by the bayonet, unawed by fed
eral police, unwatcbed by federal spies.
The ticket nomloated Is as follows:
Governor. Ben I am In F. Butler; lieutenant
governor, A, O. Woodwortb; secretary of
state, YY. J. uononue; treasurer, v. a,
Skillinga; auditor, 1). J. King; attoiaey
general Wm. D. Northcud.
That Butler would make a better Gover
nor than many of bis predecessors we have
no doubt, but we do not believe in Demo
crats making "entangling alliances." They
may feel differently where they are so large
ly in the minority, but principle is always
better than expediency.

Sept, 12, 3w,
The obsolete and now entirely useless
Electoral system for the election of
President and Vice President may lead
to an uirlv complication in 1880 If
there shall be more than two parties In the
field, or If there should be a tie vote. In
either event, no candidate for the President
may bave aclear majority of all tbe Electors
as rtauired bv the Cdnstltution, and the
elec'loQ would be thrown into the House,
and that body as affected by the California
election is without a clear majority of States
controlled by either party. The Republi
cans bave majorities in nineteen States, tbe
Democrats have majorities In eighteen, and
in one State (Indiana) no party has a ma-
jorlty, unless the Democrats shall herealter
get a majority by unseating Mr. Ortb, Re'
publican, whose seat is contested by a Dem
ocrat. But even if this shall happen, the
House can make no choice, for there will
still be a tie vote of Slates, unless some of
tbe members change front.
A failure by the Electors to choose Presi
dent and Vice-President, 'and a failure in
the House to choose a President, would
throw tbe choice of a Vice-President to suc
ceed to the Presidency into the Senate ;
and all this comes out of the blundering
Electoral system. Phila, Ledger,
That good soldier, General Sherman, hav

letter to demonstrate bow unwise a "great

published, to a committee of North Caroli'
nlans who asked him to join them in
reunion of soldiers of the late war at Salis
bury one day next month Is tbe latest illus
tration of bis unhappy faculty of doing tbe
wrong thing. A similar invitation was sent
to all the prominent officers of tbe Union
army, and many of them, Including General
Sheridan, whom many consider more iiu-
placable tbau General Sherman, returned
courteous replies, promising to attend If
possible and wishing the movement for
fraternization all success. General Sherman
however, with an eye possibly to helping

"All soldiers In tbelr bocial reunions glorify
tbelr deeds of beroUm, aud ibis leuuion

tbe same paragraph, aa if to sustain, t least

justice in tho community, to make such a re
vision of the present excise laws as will make
them intelligible to all, and better secure the
rights of the citizens to life, liberty, prosperi

Nominations for governor being in order,
the name ot Lucius Robinson was presented,
A number of warm speeches were made both
for and against Mr. Robinson. The name of
General Slocum was presented by the Tam
many men. Tbis was followed by considcra
ble confusion, during which Mr. Cowing of
Saratoga nominated John C. Jacobs, the
chairman of the oonvention.for governor. M
Jacobs cot on bis feet, but could not be
heard. The secretary put the question amid
loud cries of 'aye.' There were very few re
plies in the negative. Then for ten minutes
of confusion and noise, Mr. Jacobs being on
his feet all the time, shaking his head. Cries
of 'You must take it ' 'Stand up, John.'
Many motions were made for recess, but
Mr. Jacobs would not recognise then. When
tbe convention got quiet Mr. Jacobs said if
he had had time, he would have said he could
never be a nominee.
Erastus Brooks insisted on putting the mo
tion to adjouru, and a viva-voce vote wa tak
en, when the ayes and noes wore demanded
and called. The secretaries did not agree,
and another vote was ordered. Ibis was re
garded as a test vote, tbe Robinson peopli
voting no. Jacobs finally succeeded in do'
dining tbe nomination.
The convention then proceeded to vote for
governor, the vote resulting : Robinson, 243
Slocitu, 60 ; Clstkson N. Potter, 1 ; Hora
tio Seymour, 1. Robison was declared nomi
nated amid treuieud ms cheering and hissing,
The Tammany delegates then marched out of
the hall, and the noise and confusioo that
ensued was deafening.
Tbe following nominations for the other of
fices were thou made. Clarkson N, Potter,
Lieutenant Governor ; Allen C. Beach, Sec
retary of State ; Alcott for Comptroller :
Maokin for Treasurer ; Scboonmacker for
Attorney General ; aud Horatio Seymour Jr.
for State Engineer.
After bolting, tbo Tammany men hiroda
hall, and after a number of speeches John
Kelly was nominated as candidate for Gov
ernor. Kelly came forward and said that he
did not expect to be elected governor, but he
did expect to defeat a man who had commit
ted great outrages upon the people of New
York. He reviewed Robinson's course from
the now familiar Tammany standpoint, and
in conclusion promised that those who had
attempted to tyiannize over his hearers would
be beaten in New York city by ot.OOO.
The opposition to Robinson from Tam
many arises from the fact that they cannot
control him and run all the offices in New
under his appointment. The balance of tbe
ticket was endorsed by Tammany.

opinion of the court.
Before the statute of Westminster 2d 13
Edw. 1 Cap. 45. Roberts Dig. 240, the
plaintiff in a judgment could not maintain
a scire facial upon a personal judgment, nor
have execution where the judgment slept a
year aud a day, but was put to a new action
upon tho original judgment. 3 Salkeld 321
The rule of the common law was for the
protection of the debtor, and, one object of
the statute was, says Gibson J, in Pennock
vs. Hart 8 S. & R. 376, 'to preserve to him
the benefit of It, while a more speedy and
less oppressive remedy was provided for the
creditor. Both at the common law,
and under the statute, the presumption
prima facie that the judgment has been
discharged, and the defendant is not to be
molested with an execution before he has an
opportunity to show the truth.'
A scire facias is in the nature of an orlgi
nal action and the defendant may plead to
It in bar of an execution. Co. Litt. 290 and
2 Troubat and Haley Pr. 372, 3d Ed.
The action by scire facias is a substitute
for tbe action of debt upon the judgment,
and tbe latter action may still be maintain
ed In England, but it has become less fre
quent because of the statute of 43 Geo,
which precludes the plaintiff from recover
ing costs in an action on a judgment unless
the Court or one of the judges shall other
wise direct. 1 Cbltty PI. 111.
In Duff vs. Wynkoop 74 St. Rep. 305 it
was held that a scl. fa. is a substitute here
for an action of debt elsewhere; the judg
ment on it is quod recuperet instead of a bare
award or execution.
By our Act of 1845 the time within whlth
a plaintiff may have execution upon a judg
ment is extended to five years. If the
plaintiff after the lapse of that time shall
cause an execution to be issued without
previous scl. fa. it will be set aside. Comly
vs. Russell 1 Pblla. 402.
At common law a judgment was not
lien on real estate, ibe necessity for a re
newal of tbe judgment after a year and
day was In no way created bv any question
on that subject. It arose altogether from
the presumption of discharge or release by
the lapse of time. This presumption as we
have seen does not create a bar to tbe re
coverr of the debt unless it is rebutted by
proof, but it extends no further than to re'
quire that tbe plaintiff who has taken
steps to execute his judgment during the
year and a day at the common law, or the
five years now allowed by statute, to call
upon tbe defendant by legal process to show
cause why he should not have the frutts of
his judgment. If he will not do this the
presumption stands in the way of his col
Iecting the judgment by execution of any
By tbe Act of 1S34 tbe party entitled to
tbe benefit of a judgment against a township
shall have execution thereof by a writ com
maudlng payment thereof out of any mon
eys in the treasury unappropriated, aud If
there be none, out of the first niorey that
shall be received for the use of the township
and siot otherwise.
This proc-ss U what is called in Ilia act
an eii-cnti in, and is theref ire within the
prohibition ot the common law as extended
by the act ot 1845.

upon the iteteudiint t show cau.n why he
should not have ex. ruiloii accordi-ig to that
act. It is no auswer for the d-f nduut to say
thejudgment Is not h lieu on real e.tate aud
therefore the act prohibiting execution after
five years does not apply. Why it does not,
itappears to me to be Impossible to establish
by any course of sound reasoning,
In no statute nor by any decision of any
court has a different rule been established
for Municipal Corporations Irom that in re
gard to natural persons as to tbe presump
tion arising from lapse of time beyond
which a judgment cannot be executed with
out a revival. Why should there be a dis
tinction T There is greater reason why the
officers of a township, after the lapse of five
years, should be afforded an opportunity to.
show cause why tbe statutory writ of exe
cution should not be issued, than lu the case
of an individual. New officers are annually
coming in to take cbarg of the financial af
fairs of the township. Aud therefore protec
tion to the township requires that where s
plalntlrt baa taken no action for nve years
he shall be put to bis writ of scl. fa. before
he can bave execution.
If the plaintiff bad Issued the statutory
writ instead of this scire facias it would have
been set aside on motion. Inasmuch there
fore as the plaintiff could not proceed other
wise than by scire facias be is entitled to
maintain bis action. It is no objection to
tbis proceeding that other creditors have
judgments upon which scire facias may be
issued and thus costs be mado to the town
ship. The only question it, has tbe plaintiff
the riitht to have judgment that he may re
cover bis debt by sucb form of execution as
is in sucb case provided by law.

In this rase an auditor was appointed on

filed by counsel for Mrs. Bach that the

paid out of tbe fund,
OPINION OF THE COURT,
Ten the request for the appointment of

question to be settled was tho right of the
wife of the defendant to secure the proceeds
of tbo sale upon a judgment lately confessed
for n large sum, l'rima facie eho had not

against her claim. Unless she could rebut
this presumption by proof sho had no right

The creditors therefore had reasonable
ground to require nn nudlt to compel her to
establish ber claim by other proof than tbe
sluipio judgment note ol ber husband, it is
but simple justice therefore that the expense
necessary to sustain ber claim snouia ne
