East Smithfield, Pa., Sept. 10, 187U
Messrs. IlnocKWAY & Elwell,
Gentlemen: I notice in your paper of
tho 17th of July tho proceedings of Ihe
Columbia County Medical Society against Dr,
Turner. Will you permit me to tell you what
I know of tho great humbug and quack as they
style him. I hae n son who is twenty-four
years old, lie was taken with epilepsy when
two j cars old in its worst form, having from
two to ten fits in tho course of tweniy-four
hours. I employed the best medical skill this
country afforded, nnd my father, Darius
Bullock, who 1 1 ml practiced medicine in this
vicinity for oacr forty y.nrs, did nil in his
power for my sou's reliel, but to no purpose,
o purchased all (lie medicines wo enw
advertised in tho principal cities but it did no
good, and we had given up that there wns no
help for him, when my lather heard of Dr.
Turner and o cned n correspondence with him
which led to our trying n bottle of medicine,
i think in July 18i0, Binco wlucn time my
son has had but two fits nnd they wero when
my father died two years ego, caused by getting
out of tho medicine nnd the excitement of
my father's death. My son is now so that he
helps me in my store nnd 1 think will fully
regain Ins mental faculties.
I think if there is a benefactor to the human
family it is Dr. Turner, and I hope he may be
paied for many years to come. I nm called
upon dally for Dr. Turner's address by persons
who have heard of the wonderful cure of my
son, nnd it is a pleasure to me to give nil tho
information I can to nil that aro suffering from
that dreadful disea-e. 1 shall be pleased to
answer any and nil communications.
Ml'OP.TAKT TO WIDOWS AND CIIILDHEN
LKUlSAfctD HULU1E11S AKD SAII.UH3.
The fallowing from ihe Washington Tribune
i worthy the attention of ihe widows and child
ren of deceas- d soldiers and sailors :
It has been decided that under tho operations
of the arrears of pension hw.limita lions which
under Ihe old pensiou laws, ran against widows
who remarried without having applied lor
ension within five years from the death of the
soldier and children, and brothers and sisters
of a deceui-ed eold ier who were under sixteen
years of age at the time of the letter's death
but who neirlecled lo file an application for
pemiuns beloro they attained the age of twenty
one years, have been swept away, so that now
the late widow of ihe soldier who died in the
service and in the line of duty, is entitled to
pension Irum the dalo of her remarriage, pro'
vided she lias not received the same, Also
children who have been debarred a pension un
der the old pemdon laws by reason of the young.
est having attained the age of twenty one years
without making an application, should now
apply ; also brothers and sisters who were
under eixtien years of age at the date of the
soldier's death and dependent uiKin him fur
support (the soldier having left neither widow,
minor child nor children turviving him, and
the mother and father having died before the
brothers and sisters attained the age of sixteen

It Is'possible that after all the talk and
trouble Bloomsburg will hare no water works
for some time to come. It was generally under
stood that Ihe Town Council bad agreed to give
SlOOO a year to a foreign parly who talked of
going into the enterprise. No formal action
was taken by them, but individual members
seemed inclined to do that much, and hence
the water company expected that when every
thing was In readiness, the Town would agree
to lako enough water and pay enough for It to
warrant the company In putting in firo plugs.
An organization was effected, ten per cent of
the capital stock paid In, a charter obtained,
and then the Council were requested to indi
cate what they woulj be willing to contract for,
On Thursday of last week they met, and after
voting on several motions, which were lost.lhey
decided to offer $20 apiece for forty fire plugs,
and to contract for one year at that price. This
was communicated to the Board of Directors of
the water company who were in session at (lie
same time, and tho offer was rejected. A rej
solution was passed to the effect that no fur
ther steps be taken towards the erection of
water works until the Town authorities shall
see fit to pay a sum sufficient to warrant the
company in going to the expense of pulling in
plugs. Unless the town will do this there will
be no water works.
n erroneous view Is entertained by some o'
our citizens on the subject of an appropriation
for a water supply. They talk of it as though
the money paid to the water company would be
a gift from the public to the stockholders. We
do not understand that this enterprise has
been Inaugurated as a mere speculation out of
which the stock holders expect to become
wealthy. It is intended for the convenience
and protection of the entire community. Those
who own the most stock are as a general thing
among our largest property owners, and there
fore would have to pay the heaviest taxes for
water rents. When every body will be benefit.
ted they should be willing to encourage the
matter, and the Town Council should lk!
sucli steps as will insure protection against fire.
If the public does Dot want such protection, and
desires to continue to run the risk of lc-iag
more properly in one night than the water
rents from the town would amount to in ten
years then the late action of Ihe authorities will
meet with general approbation.
VIEWS OP A CITIZEN ON THE WATER QUES
TION. Messrs. BROcKavAT & Eltveli,,
Gentlemen: Permit me through your
columns, as a citizen and taxpayer, to express
my disgust at the action of our ,Town Council
in tbo matter of Water Works. It is very
much to be regretted, that we have a council
partly composed of narrow minded, selfish
men, who seem to Ignore the fact, that they are
only the smnnte of tht people and that when
elected by the taxpayers they are not to legis
late to suit themselves but to suit the wishes of
a majority of the citizens who elected them.
Now it is well understood that a large majority
of our taxpayers are favorable to the erection
of Water Works, ihe very fact of their sub
scribing to raise the amount of funds proves
this, nnd should have been sufficient to guide
the Town Council in the matter of what
amount the Town would bo willing to pay for
water. The Council held a meeting. "The
Mountain conceived and brought forth
mouse-" The very liberal offer of $800 per
year was agreed to, and that mark you for one
year, a sum that would hardly more tban
compensate the company for putting in the
plugs, therefore at the expiration of one year
the Company would be at the mercy of a
Council who may just decide to do villuiul vater
altogether, and the Company would be where?
echo answers where? Now let us look at
the matter in a business light. A number of
our citizens having the welfare of our Tcwniii
view, formed a company, raised -the sum of
$30,000, 10 per cent, already collected
charter obtained, everything fair for success,
only wanting one thing settled, viz.: what the
Council would do, and now this Council stands
as an obstacle in the way of the success of the
Water Woik. Would any business man aa an
individual invest an amount of money without
some guarantee of its paying, but the
Council seems to think they ought to risk it on
the paltry offer made by them of 800 dollars
I believe the Council claims to have some
business men among its members. I would
very much like to hear their reasons or an
explanation of the stand taken by six oat o
Severn They mast certainly bo aware that the
course taken by them in this matter would not
meet with the approvnl of those who elected
them. Surely If that portion of our citizens
who pay the largest share of taxes already are
willing to still increase their share, why should
iho Town Council prove an obstacle in the way
of the greatest improvement the town ever had
or will have I Oar properties will increase in
value, our insurance be reduced, our town will
become still more attractive and healthy.
I trust the citizens will not permit this
chance to be lost, but call "a meeting at onco
and petition the Council to reconsider thi
matter and make terms with the company that
will be satisfactory to all. I write you cot in
the interest of the company but having the
welfare of our town at heart-

The Yazoo Business.
Just after the war n man named Morgan,
who had some connection with the Federal
army, settled in the county of Yazoo, Miss.,
and married a' mulatto woman, engaging In
politics an an avocation. Tho population of
the county of Yazoo, at that time, whs four
fifths black.and Morgan.by thoroughly Iden
tifying himself with tho negroes, became
their leader. His word wa law. He found
no difficulty In being elected to any office
e chose, and finally, after trying a number
selected that of Sheriff as bolng the most
profitable. His reign was a reign of terror.
Things went on from bad to worse, until
every white man who did not profit by an
asoclat!on with Morgan found a refugo else
where. One day a man named Dixon, who
had been a Confederate soldier, and wns
wellknown as a desperato character, sent
Morgan an unsealed letter In which he terse
ly informed him that bo (Dixon) wa tired
of the way things had been going on, and
that he wanted him (Morgan) " to get out
f there." In order that ho might know
just what was meant, Dixon added n post-
cript to the effect, that if he had met him
after the receipt of his letter he would shoot
him on sight. Morgan was a desperate man
himself, but in Dixon he recognized his
master. Within the time prescribed be
found himself a new abiding place. Dixon
Immediately succeeded to his lordship and
The negroes feared him, but they obeyed
him. He ruled them as mercilessly as Mor
gau, and by the same mean.. One day he
chased an offending colored man to a cotton
field where thirty or forty other negroes
were at work. The hunted man saw hi
omiDg and fled to the liver. Dixon rode
up to the gang unattended and forced them
by his will-power alone to capture the rtinu
way, put a rope around his neck and hang
him to the limb of a tree without any more
ado than if he had been a mad-dog. Two
years ago, Dixon met a gambler who had
won some of his money and shot him down
without a word of warning. Ills next job
was to pack a jury with negroes, and obtain
an acquittal. By this time he had become
as great a terror as Morgan had ever been,
and the surrounding country made common
cause and drove him out of tbo State. Two
months ago he returned and announced him
self as an independent candidate for Sheriff.
That meant, if it meant anything, a renew
ai of the old scenes violence, murder and
ruin. In sheer self-defence, just a they
would have united against an insane man
wllh a torch in hts hand, or a wild animal,
the citizens of Yazoo county without dis
tinction of politics or color carao together,
and informed Dixon that he would not be
allowed to turn their peaceful community
Into another hell. In most countries fuel
a man would have been hung to the highest
treo or nearest lamp-post, and but little note
would have been made of it. Here, how
ever, a quiet but determined suppression of
him ha been tortured into proscription of
the worst grade, and Northern papers have
printed column of denunciation of what
hey style "the Mississippi method." Citi
zen who have combined merely to protect
tlii-ir firesides from rapine and riot, are as
sailed a bull-dozers and Yahoo.
The telegraph now bring us the news
that Dixon has been been shot in a personal
encounter. There was n dispute, a pulling
of pistols, one or more shots, but .somebody
was too quick for him and Dixon fell dead.
Perhap this will be the end of the trouble
and consequent notoriety of Yazoo. Possi
bly not. These statements, however, havo
been made to us by one avho had every op
portunity to know that they are true, and
we print them to show to our readers, tho

That a complete Encyclopedia, first class

any heretofore published in this country at

trifling sum of $10.00, seems so extraordinary
that many who wish it may be true, aro very
naturally incredulous. The same house pub

larly low prices, and tho presence of some of
them already in the hands of hundreds of
thousands of lovers of good books in all parts
of the land, is naturally rapidly transforming
tho incredulous into patrons and enthusiastic
frieuds of the enterprise. No mystery is
mado about tho cause of the low prices they
arc, tho reduced cost of manufacture to about
one-half what it was a few years ago, the
method of sale, direct to the purchaser, say.

many who would not admit themselves to be

Iho purity ol tho ballot box, tamper with

In the pursuit nf a nomination and In con
tending with tho agencies avhlch have been
represented to Influence) tho result I seo re
spectable men year after year yielding to
tho Importunities of the bummer element
supplying them with beer nnd whisky to
court their favor and giving them money for
their vote. On tho other hand, influential
men In the community, of high social stand
ing allow themselves to bo influenced by
such considerations. At the lat primary
election a wealthy farmer, a man of mark in
IiIh community, by reason of hi wealth nnd
Intelligence, of one of the best families in
his section, actually was paid $100 by a
candidate for one office, and avas bought by
each of tho rival candidate for another, by
his vote nnd Influence. Indeed, ho is credi
bly reported to have been so shameless a to
bring hi son, a young man, jut coming of
voting age, to Introduce him to the politici
ans a a man of rising influence, and effected
an understanding between him and them,
by which he received $ 5 hero and there lor
his support of several candidates. Another
examplo that illustrates the lavish expendi
tures by candidates Rnd tbo popular dem
oralization is furnished by another prom!
nent farmer, a man nf wealth, social posl
tion and Intelligence. He is ro very llltlo
of a politician that very few persons really
know (If he know himself) to which party
he belong j but, boing a man of mark.wheu
"money was in the air," ho wa offered and
took $100 for hi influence, which, to the
best information, avas exerted to get himself,
his son, and one or two hireling to the pri
mary elections. Those who get a tasto of thl
sort of tiling generally follow it up year after
year. It ha become known and appreciated
among tho politicians that "dlsfnterostcd''
farmers and tho class among whom the
greatest independence would naturally be
looked for aro the most importunate nnd
purchasable clns. They lake to political
bribery as a legitimate business.
Now, let u sco what the law has done to
remedy thi state of thing. Tho constitu
tion of tho state provide :
'Senator nnd representatives and all ju
dicial, state, and county oilicer shall, be
fore enteiing on the duties of their respect
ivo offices, takVi and subscribo tho following
oath and affirmation : 'I do solemnly swear
(or affirm) that I will support, obey, and

and the constitution of this commonwealth,
and that I will discharge the duties nf my

either direct!; or indirectly, any money or oth
er valuable thing to procure my nomination or

and proper expenses expressly authorised by
law ; that I have not knowingly violated
any election law of thi commonwealth nr
procured it to be done by other. In my be
half ; that I will not knowingly receive, di
rectly or indirectly, any money or other val
uablo thing for (lie performance) or nonper
formance of any act or duty pertaining to
toy oflice other than the compensation al
lowed by law.'
'And any person who shall be convicted
nflinviug sworn or affirmed falsely, or of
having violated said oalh or affirmation,
shall be guilty of peijury and be forever
disqualified from holding any office of trust
or profit within the commonwealth,'
And, in order to define and 'expres ex
actly' what are necessary and proper ex
pense, the following statute law has been
enacted by the state Legislature :
'lie it enacted, dc, That no person avho
shall hereafter be a candidate for the nomi
nation or for the ckction to the 'Senate or

Third, For political meetings, demon

"The foregoing expenses may bo incurred
either in penou or through other individuals
or committees or organizations duly const!

in this act shall be so constructed as to author

seven of the constitution of this common

"Every person violating either of the pro

lavishly in execs of tbeso specifically
authorized purposes; but even after nomina

'The Plain Ivsno In I'cnnsjlviinia.
Ordinarily the addresses of political com
mittee arc of email importance machino
made, and low-grade avork at that. But the.
address ol the Democratic Committee of
'cnnsylvuuia deserves to bo read and pon
dered by every voter in tho Slate. It is re
markable, because it lays stress on tho real
grievances of the people and strikes boldly at
tp powers which havo been supposed to
hold and govern that State.
Formany yeais the Republican party in
'cnnsylvania, ruled by tho Treasury Ring.
ias maintained an intimate and profitable
llianco with the most powerful corporations.
lktween tho two they owned and controlled
tho Legislature, tho Stato ndininUtration.aiid
to municipal goa-ernnicnts of tho richest and
most pppulou communities. Tho power of
is combination was believed to bo irresisti
ble until tbo people, by tho adoption of the
Constitution of 1S73, in spite of their desper
ate oppo-ition, broko tho charm of invin
cibility and taught the politician that the
line of duly as well as of policy lay in resis
tance to the encroachment of 'corpora'c poav
cr in collusion avith political rings.' But Ibe
Republican party avas hopelessly rotten ; to
cut out tho gangrcuo was to tako the heart of
the patient. I o reform it, and induce it to
stand a a guard of the people's rights again
their oppressors, avas impossible. Tho King
the corporations, tho monopolies thee were
the party tho bone of its bone and flesh of
its flesh. Without them, without their mon
oy and their power to cocrco and intimidate
otcrs in its interest, it would bo as thor
cjughly defunct us tbo Whig parly or the
iVud it lias certainly been a most unforUv
nato circumstance that, until recently, the
Democratic parly of Pennsylvania has been
withheld from boldly following out the logic
of its principles by men in its councils avho
were cither in sympathy avith its corporato
cnctnie.s or fcari-d to strike the blow that
avould serve as the signal for tho beginuing of
a long nnd bitter struggle, in which all the
odds of power, organization, and conuptiou
fuuds avould bo against the Democracy. They
continually fiatteied themselves and their fbl
lower avith the idlo notion that the railroads,
and especially the great Pennsylvania Rail
road, would seo its interest in abstaining Irom
lolitics, or in dividing its strength between
tho tavo parties. But it never did, and it
never could. It could no more shake off tho
Republicau Kings than they could exist with
Tho Convention which nominated Mr. Barr
mado its issues so clear that uo child can mis
understand them. It said that tho corpora
tions must accept and obey the Constitution
the adoption of a Inch they so fiercely icsist
ou, arm avincii lurouH all discriminations in
rates of freight, a liich remands tho railroads
to tho legltimato business of common carriers.
and which prohibits combinations injuiious
to tho public interests, and abolishes the in
famous system of bribery and corruption car
ried on by tbo unlimited isue of freo passes.
The Convention also denounced tho Riot bii
under avhich tbo Stato wa to bo plundered of
M.OOO.OOO without even so much as a pretext
and the) robbery of tho Commonwealth by
tho Treasury Bin? plunder which a com
mittco of tho Legislature found had in a feav
years amounted to $1,200,000 in the ono item
of interest on tho public money.
On all these issues tho Republican Conven
tion avas dumb ; it put in no defenco of tho
past, nor any promise of amendment in tho
future. On tho cjntrary, it explicitly ap
proven me corrupt means employed lo pas
tho Ittot bill, openly sustained tho corruption
ists, put a gag upon freo discussion, and
smothered Wolfo's resolution in favor
'honest men in oflice.'
Tho Democratic address dwells upon tbeso
vital questions. Tbo Republican address
liko tho Republican Convention, avill nodoubt
pass them in silence. X, Y. S'n.
