Tho members of tbe Standing Committeo
elected by the people in their respective dis
trhts have impo-tant duties to perform. Nog
lect or failuro on their part prevents thorough
organization and entails a heavy loss It is
allimportant 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 will lerve. Work and not cotnplimenti
are demanded. See that every man is duly
assessed, properly registered, and has paid his
taxes. Tho registry books arc now in the
proper places. Delay in such matters is fol
Iy, and so to work at once.
TO THIS KEADKUS OF THE COLUMBIAN.
With this issue of the Columbian I cease
to be one of Its editors and proprietors,
having sold my interest in it to Mr. John K
Bittenbender, now foreman of tbe office.
The public at large cannot be interested as
to my motives for this action, but I may
stato that tbe main reasons are a desire to
follow exclusively the practice of law, and
to endeavor to settle several thousand old
accounts, some of which have been stand
ing over fourteen years.
To those who know me it is needless to
ay that I take this step with great reluct
ance. My past, and the Columbian, have
been so closely identified that It is morn
than a separation from an old friend ; it is
more like a farewell to a dear child 1
As to Mr. Elwell, my associate for tbe
past four years, no words of commendation
arc necessary. My successor, Mr. Bitten
bender, is a practical printer of large ex
perience, and an able writer.
In stepping into theback-ground, "down
and out," I desire to thank our cotenipor
arles for their uniform courtesy, the De
mocracy for their unflinching support,
and my friends for their charity as to
errors of judgment for which I may have
been immediately responsible.
0. II. IlBOCKWAY,
I do not know that it Is necessary for me
to say much at this time.
For tbe past four years I have endeavored
by constant and careful attention to business
to make the Columbian a first class news-
iper, and to establish it on a firm financial
li.sis. How well my efforts have succeeded
I leave to tbe public to judge.
The Columbian will continue to be what
it has been iu the past,a staunch Democratic
Journal, an exponent of the principles of
that party, and opposed to dishonesty and
corruption, wherever they may be found.
It gives me pleasure to introduce to tbe
patrons of this piper my future partner.Mr.
John K. Bittenbender. Be is a young man
of ability and energy, graduate of tbe
Normal school, and a practical printer of
somb years experience. lie has been fore
man of this office for several months oast,
nd has proved himself here, as well as in
other offices with which be has been con'
nected, a fitst-class mechanic- and publisher,
He will assume control of the publishing
department and assist In tbe general man
agement of tbe paper, while tbe editorial
department will continue under my direc
tion, We ask of tbe public the same liberal
patronage that has been extended to tbe of
fice heretofore, and promise iu returu to put
forth all our efforts for the benefit nf our
patrons and to make the Coi.Uil WAN a ne
cessity In every household.

a similar thing and put forward nominees in

cose was given to the jury on Tuesday, and
they were discharged on Wednesday, not
belug able to agree. Tbey stood 11 fur ac
quittal and 1 for conviction. This bank
went into liquidation about two years ago,
and a receiver was appointed. Since then
the depositors bavo been paid in full with
six per cent ipterest, and nearly all the stock
holders have been paid. Under this show
sng the prosecution of Mr. Torrey appears
very much like a piece of personal spite, not
on tbe part of the prosecutor who was a

behind and footed tbe bills.

no prospect of increase in prices of the

HOW THE REPUBLICANS CARRY ELEC
The Republican Congressional Committee
wants more money than it has been ablotn
collect thus far for this year's campaign. In
1876 and 1878 regular assessments wero
levied on the officeholders of the country.
So much criticism was excited by this meth
od, and it was 10 flagrantly In violation of
Civil Service Order No. 1. that a new method
was resorted to this year. No circulars were
Issued and no assessments levied, but per
sonal appeals were made to the employees
at Washington. In the different States the
work of raising money from the office-holders
was delegated to tbo local committees
In Washington. This method has resulted
In the collection of about (11 000, and the
expenses of the Congressional Committee
are in danger of exceeding their receipts. In
view of this tbe Committee bat determined
to return to this old system of circulars, and
have tent out tho following to the federal
Headquarters of the Republican Com.)
Washington, Sept. 13, 1879. f
Tho heavy and increasing demands upon
tbe Congressional Committeo aa the cam
paign progresses, induces ut to invite such
voluntary contributions from all persons In
terested In the success of the Republican
party and its measures as they may be will
ing and able to make. We earnestly hope
that any contributions you may wish to
make will be remitted or paid at once to

What a beautiful thing ia civil aervice re
form under the present fraudulent adminls
tration I Hayes forbids office holders under
his appointment to take part in running the
republican machine politics, and yet sends
the members of his cabinet all over tbe
country in the interests of the republican
party. He forbids assessments for campaign
purposes to be made on govtrnment i-fllce
holders, and yet the managers at Washing
ton disobey orders under bis very eyes, and
probably at his direction. Still the drain
upon the purse has been so heavy in Maine
and California that they must have money

THE (IKANl" 1I00M.
General Grant arrived at San Fian i-co
in the steamer Tcklo on the 21st inst. When
the signal was given that the steamer was in
fight every kind of business was suspended
and people poured forth in such numbers
that in a few minutesjthe streets were denst
ly crowded with citizens flocking toward the
Utn down Market street. The sun was
shining brilliantly and tbe effect upon tie
decorated buildings, arcbes and flags was
Silu;e was flrwl from every fort and bat
tery in the harbor. The cross fire from tbe
batteries on lh approach of the Tokio and
escorting jewels, i-howed that auv hostile
descent upon San Fraucisco would be ex
tremely hazirduus. At least thirty thousand
people were ufi tat on the bay and two bun
dred thousand on tbe street. The Tokio
passed up the water front at a quatter to 'six
p. m., followed by the escorting fleet. About
seven General Grant landed from the ferry
boat Oakland, according to arrangement, at
(he foot of Market street, and was received
by the mayor and g-ivernor, also by Govcr
nor-elect George C. Pirkius. Governor
Irwin was accompanied by his staff.
Tbe mayor welcomed General Grant in a
brief speech referring to the honors the lat
ter received when abroad and to the fact
that General Graut was once a rttldent of
San Francisco. General Grant in riply
made a abort speech expressing his gratifica
tion at bis returu to his native couutry.
Tbe procession was one of the greaus. over
seen in San Francisco. The streets were
lined with people and the indows and. bal
conlet. were crowded, Tbe procession was
fifteen blocks loug, and ab mt seven tb iu-
sand persons tonic part in it. It counter
marched on Market street bifire General
Grant, from which point the general went
to the Palace hotel ami was serenaded in
the court yard. General Graut, on arrival
at the bote) u'ter the Jproies ion, retired to
bis rooms and asked not to bodlsturbtddur
tbe night. A number cf gentlemen were
presented by the committee to General Grant
who received tin in cordially.
Tbe enthusiastic populace thronged the
court aud refu-ed to leave. Finally Mayor
Bryant appeared and auuuuiiced that as
soon as the general had finished bis dinner
be would show hiuiselr. In a fjw minutes
Grant appeared, auiid deafening and long
continued shouts. Mayor Bryant called tbe
crowd to order and the general wua again
greeted with a succession of cheers. When
tbe noise subsided be udJressed them as
Fellow Citizens of Sn Franc'uco : After
twentj-fivo ycirs absence I am glad to meet
you and assure you of my oirdial thanks for
the kind greeting you have given me. I

He then withdrew amid prolonged and
tremendous cheering . ud the crowd reluc
tantly scattered. Toe geueral is looking ex
tremely well and expressed his satisfaction
with his experience of his trip and his sur
prise at the tremendous demonstration which
greeted his arrival home. He specially re
marked that good health had attended htm
during hU trip and related with evident rel
ish that he had got rid of his superfluous
flesh, as he weighed 18C pounds when he
left tbe United States and now pulled down
tbe scales at 169.
General Grant informed tho committee
that he was in their bands as far as the re
ception was concerned, and that in regard
to his stay on the coast and future meve

decide until he bad lime to examine letters

OUR DELEGATE SYSTEM.
Editors Columbia! ! A few weeks ago
I read with much care and attention a com
munication in your paper on this subject, and
would ask- tho ptiviicgo of submitting a few
thoughts of my own, believing at tbo same
time that I represent tho views ot a largo
number oi your readers. At tbo outset allow
me to stato that I do not in any nay chal
lenge the regularity or propriety of tho nom
ination made for ShcrliTat tbe last convention
nor do I allege that tho result would have
been different under any provious plan.
In my opinion tro eelcctiou of delegate;,
and the nomination of candidates should bo
by some cqultablo and clear system Propor
tional representation, based upon the Demo
cratic vote of a district is therefore Just. The
difficulty is to have the wishes of tho voter
properly recorded in convention. It is affirm
ed that that object can bo accomplished un
der our present rules. It may bo so, but
whether from stupidity, or the verbiage and
technicalities surrounding ihoso rules, it ia a
fact that they arc not understood by nine
tenths of the voters ; and if their illustrious
uthor wero to die, 'twould bo confusion
worse confounded to try and explain tbem,
And then they arc io pliable so likely to be
interpreted so as to meet the views of inter
ested parties I
A few illustrations will suffice. Ono object
of tho present rules was to prevent tho mlo of
01 bargain undelegates, and tlicrcforo cuoh
and every ono was obtigod to come into con
vention instructed for some ono or more can
didates. How easily is this evadtd? The
knowing candidato for delegate, and his con
fiding constituents instruct for souio ono who
has not the ghost of a cliaucj fur nomination.
In duo oourso that candidato is dropped, and
then the delegate is free to vote for whom ho
chooses, and that may bt for the man with
the largest purse,
Again, whec John Knt and John O, Quick
were candidates in convention for Commis
sioner, after much tuanccuvreing it was found
that there was a tie cf delcgato votcj. For
such a dilemma tho rules did not provide, but
tbe interested ones cut tho Gordian Knot,
and set a precedent that in such a case the
popular majority thould determine. Mr
Knt, having nearly 100 majority was then de
clared tho regular nomiuco. To regulate such
cases in tho future, in the convention of 1870
the precedent was formulated into a rule.
But this must have been a poor rule, be
cause it did not 'work both ways,' In that
same convention Dr. Mcgargrll and Capt.
Brockway wero candidates for the Congress
ional nomination, and a tio vote of delegates
again ensued. In this case neither precedent
nor rnlo was followed, although Brockway
had about 300 majority on tho popular vote,
The way in which th managers got out of
this was ingenious Fint, disregard the pre
cedent and rule, and then give each a con
feree and a half vole split a man I
Another illustration is in point, and it was
forcibly brought out in the last convention.
The rules contemplate a Fecond or more in
structions, if the voters sen fit so to act. But
how is it in practice ? Generally they instruct
cd for but one candidate. But shrewd politi
cians would go to one class of delegates, and,
when in their favor, insist that they were
practically instructed for tho Bfcond highest
name on the tally list, if the first was off, even
if not named on the ballots In other cases,
that tho delegates were told that thfy were
not so bound. The cases of Beaver and Jack
son illustra'e the point, an illusion which
the Chair did not see fit to correct.
Let me illustrate again. At tbe late conven
tion the contest for Sheriff narrowed down to
A. K. Smith and William Miller. In Beaver
Miller got 33 votes Smitli 1, and yet under
this vaunted system Miller got but one dele
gate and Smith two 1 In Jackson Smith got
13 out of 68 votes, and yet got both delegates.
And so on through the list As to the pop
ular vote, as between the two, Miller had a
majority. Understand me Messrs. Editors, I
do not dnny the rrgulaiity of Mr. Smith's
nomination under tho rules, but I am only
criticizing iho results under them
Lastly, it semis to me that a p'nn eou'd be
devised by which fractional votes could bo
eliminated. They ten 1 to no good and cro
ate conl'uM u No man in the heat of con
vention feels like calculating whether he is a
ball', fuuith, eighth, tie, of a man. Imagine
the indignat'on of our woithy friend from
Catawissa, Mr. Tvwksbury, wheu ho was re
duced to a vulgar fraction.
But I huve written enough I hope, to ca'l
renewed attention to the subject.

Tbe Last Detective Dodge.
The latest fashion in modern detection of
crimo is to put a detective in the jail cell with
an accucd murderer, with a view of drawing
the accused into conversation and thus in
veigling him into confession of guilt. This
has been dune in. Connecticut, whero ono
Buchotz is being tried fr tho murder of a
wealthy miser. Tho evidenco against tho ac
cused was by no means complete. Detective
Stark was lodged in the cell with him to cn
gago him in talk, worm a confession out of
him and put it all down on paper. To a cer
tain extent Stark's work was successful. All
day for several weeks he thus shadowed him
and at night wrote down the substance ot
what ho had said. Stark and his memoran
dums are now admitted as in court, with a
possibility of carrying considerable weight
against Bucholz. But lawyers and other
thinking men in various directions are begin
ning to reflect seriously on this method of
extorting a confession and on the propiiety of
using such extorted confession as evidence.
What a murderer confesses is no evidence-
Ills mind may bo unsettled by remorso and
general embarrassment or under excitement
his memory mar fail bim. Tbo evidenco of
tbe detective is no evidcnoo at all. Ho saw
nothing of tbo murder and knows nothing of
it except in a second hand way by what bo
heard from the accused. Were such a meth
od of obtaining testimony ever so reliable, it
is open to dangerous abuse. A detective
thus serving as a bogus prisoner docs not liko
to make a failuro of his undertaking, nor do
his employers like to send bim to engage in
it in vain. lie may bo an unscrupulous man.
There is nobody except the accused prisoner
to contradict what he says. The word of the
accused, even though possibly as good as that
of tho detective, carries no weight with it.
The unfortunate prisoner is thus put at the
mercy of the mn who is paid for being bis
enemy and whose interest it is to bring bim
to the gallows.
It is comforting to know that tbe detective
who uodertook this miserable business found
the wear and tear on bis nerves so great as to
necessitate hit being bailed out of jail and
giving up for a season this unpleasaut tort of
confessional. And it is cheerful to reflect that
when he gavo the accused man an axe to
show how a blow might have been inflicted
on tho skull of the deceased miser, the accus
ed wliltked it around in such a lively and vig
orous manner as to cause tbe detoetivo to be
lieve a death blow was to be inflicted on his
own skull. With such risks there is no rea
son to bopo that the new fashion of defectivo
confessional will not become popular. 'Afa
The Origin of Shaving.
The custom of shaving the beard pas cu-
foiced by AlexAnder of Macedoo, not for
the sake of fashion, but for a particular end,
He knew that tho soldiers of India, when
they encountered their foea, had a habit of
grasping them by the beard, and so be or
dered his aoldlers to shave. Afterwards
shaving was practised In the Macedonian
army and then among the Greek citizen'.
The Romans Imitated the Grceka In the
practice, aa they did in many other things.
and apread it to the dlflerent European na
tions yet barbaric, In the middle ages at
tbe time of tbo Renaissance, shaving was
Introduced nnd the bablt was retained,
though classicism gave place to romanticism
and that in its turn was replaced by realism,
The beard was asourco of troublo to Peter
the Great, who, simultaneously with the in
troduction of his great reforms in Dussia,
tried to Induce his people 1 1 Imitato the
shaving nations. This innovation was re
listed by his subjects with the utmost resis
tance, and they preferred to pay a heavy fine
rather than suffer disfigurement as they be
lieved, of the Image of God. To tbe Russian
of olden times tbe beard was a symbol of
liberty. In several countries of Western
Europe and In the United States, the beard
was restored to honor only about twenty

tho genuine. Sold by all druggists. Ask for E. P,
Kunkel's Bitter Wlno of Iron, and take no other.

All I ask Is a trial ot this valuable medicine. It
will convince the most skeptical of its merits.
Never Failing Worm Syrup.
B. P. Kunkel's Worm Syrup never falls to destroy
Seat, Pin and Stomach Worms. Dr. Kunkel Is the
only successful physician who removes Tape Worm
In two hours. Head and all complete kllve, and no
tee tut head passes. Common sense teaches that If
Tape Worms can be removed, ail other Worms can
be readily destroyed. Send tor circular to Dr. Kun
kel, S5 North Ninth Street, Philadelphia, Pa., or
ask your druggist for a bottle ot Kunkel s Worm
Syrup. Price, tl per bottle. It never falls. Used
by children or grown persons with perfect safety.
By virtue of a writ of Lev. Fa. lwiort out of ttie
Court of Coin mon Pleas of Columbia county and to
me directed, will be exposed to public sale on
tho premises la lie r wick, l'a., at t o'clock, p. m , on

Eighth and Market Sts.,
In thefaco of everything, Wanamaker & flrown increased
their great Clothing business last year at Oak Hall nearly a quarter
of a million dollars, and for 1879 the new plans will make the
house more popular and increase the business much more.
Eighteen years in the people's service at the old corner of Sixth
and Market has taught us how to do the business well.
Whatever may be said, no house in the United States selU any-'
thinK lilce so much Clothing at Retail as Oak Hall, and no house
m 1 hiladclphia 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
witn uak Hall, and will give his whole energies and valuable
experience to improving the manufacture of our Boys' and Men's
Clothing. We flo net buy Clothing like the dealers, but make
it expressly for our own sales. The Spring stock is splendid,
and no other make of goods, so far, have as much merit, or are
told ns cheaply.
Impression 5 have been erroneously given to the effect that
Mr. John Wanamaker, who founded Oak Hall, is not interested in
the old s ore, and that it docs not have his attention; on the
contrary, his ownership of it remains unchanged, and ho has lost
none of his love for it. Everyday finds him supervising all its
P.mr?Ti, M"j' w,ll'am Wanamaker spends his entire time
on the Oak Hall business.
