Tho members of the Standing Committee
elected by the people in their respective dis
tricts have impo'tant 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 the Chairman. The men
chosen should be the moil acliee and intelligent
who will sem. Work and not compliments
are demanded. See that every man is duly
assessed, properly registered, and has paid his
taxes., Tho registry books are. now in tbe
proper places. Delay in such matters is fol
ly, and so to work at once.
Tho "outrage" mills of the Republican
party are still grinding out horrible details
of crimes in tbe south, all committed by
Democrats, of course, and having a political
aspect only. If a pig is stolen by some poor
vagabond who wants meat for his family, or
If a man is killed in selt defence a terrible
shriek at unco goes up from the Republican
organs of tbe danger to property and life In
tbe south. The victim is always a republi
can saint while the criminal is always made
out to be a Democratic sinner. This kind
of material nut of which to make political
capital Is getting worn threadbare. But
being devoid of all principles of honor and
honesty this party that stole the presidency
by the most fraudulent and disgraceful act
in the history of the world, does not hesitate
to make props to bolster up their waning
power by the most absurd lies about things
that never happened at all, and by misrep
resenting the facts in occurrences that bave
taken place. Nobody will deny that there
have been murders in the south ; but does
anybody propose to assert that there are no
such crimes committed In thenortb? When
a man is found dead by the roadside in the
south, cold and stiff, his body riddled with
shot, we at once learn that it is the work of
the Ku-Klux, tbatitis a Democratic outrage,
committed for the purpose of lessening the
Republican vote, or because tbe victim was
an ardent Republican or for some other po
itical reason. Where tbe act is done no
such things arc asserted, but when tbe news
reaches the north it is too good an opportu
nity to let slip, and tbe republican organs
take it as a text to show tbe constant danger
in which routhern republicans live. A
well might they assert that the man found
dead near his bouse with gunshot wounds
upon his person,in a certain township in this
county was murdered by the Fishlngcreek
confederacy. The last named organization
has just as much existence here as tbe Ku
Klux and other alleged Democratic criml
rial gangs have In tbe south. How much
longer will tbe people endure tbls sort ol
thing ? How long will they submit to keep
in power a party whose record Is one of
falsehood and fraud, which has shielded tho
worst of criminals because tbey are Republi
can tools, ami persecuted thousands of in
nocent men because they are Democrats ;
which has robbed the treasury of this state,
and plundered the coffers of tbe national
government ; which keeps up a large stand'
ing army at enormous expense, not for tbe
protection of the people, but fur the pur
pose of carrying elections; which occupies
the Wbito House now, not by the voice of
the populace, but by fraud.
As shown by tbe undisputed vote of 1870
the Democratic party is in the majority in
the nation by a quarter of a million. It has
a majority In ibis Commonwealth when uut
couuteu out, democrats, to wore tuen.
Let not a vote be lost. (Jo to the polls on
the 4th ot November and assert your rights,
and roll up such a majority for our whole
ticket that even the repeaters and rounders
uf tbe corrupt euemy shall cot dare to over'
come It by fraud. In this county we re
sure of the success of our local candidates,
but that Is not enough. Stand by the princi
ples of the Democratic party by Retting out
every toter, and thus kIu Iho first atcp In
Ibo great victory that will mn be ntirs, by

The Sprague Troubles. A special to
tho Jew iork H'orM from Providence, It. I.
statu that much comment has been caused
by the publication of a note addressedito
O ivernor Sprague by Z. Chaft'ee, asking
Sprague to vacate Canoncbet, and claiming
eutlre control of the properly, threatening
dispossesaory proceedings in the event of his
remaining. Mr. Sprague.it iswald, will pay
no attention to this note. Ue claims that
Canouchet is part of the Quiduick company
property, and that the Sprague trust deed
does not cover the Quidnick company. The
ex governor has said to hia friends that his
enemies mead to ruin him aud to send him
to an insane asylum, Mr. Chatfee, however
says that he views the matter purely as u
question of property. The report of Mr.
Sprague a insanity is attributed here to Sen
ator Conkllng's personal friend.
Oneoftbehighestcompllments which could
he paid to the newspaper press was that
of the Rev, Dr. Hansom, of Harlem,uttered a
fewdays since at the Baptist Ministers' Con
ference. He gave it as his matured and de
liberate opinion that "there is not a Becular
paper in this city or country that is not ready
at any time to correct a report, if the editor
can be satisfied that such report is unfair or
false." There may be journals which are
an exception to tbe rule, but if there be tbey
are not likely to do anybody much harm. V
character for persistent misrepresentation
renders tbetn comparatively innoxious.
What a newspaper needs, if its conductors
wish to be eveu financially successful, is a
reputation for speaking the truth. Mistakes
will be made, but they cause at least as
much annoyance to tbe average editor as to
thoae about whom they are made. The Con
ferenra showed its appreciation of Xi. San
som's remarks by refusing to exclude report
ers from its meetings. Ar. Y. Tribune.
The Mot Cases.
THE SUPREME COURT DECIDES AGAINST AL
The supreme court has decided against Al
legheny county in tho riot cases.
The opinion is very voluminous, covering
thirty-six large pages. It will be remember
ed (bat there were two cases before the court,
one brought by a citizen of Pennsylvania,
and the other by a citizen of anothor state
against the county of Allegheny, fur goods
burned by tho mob in Pittsburg. There were
judgments against the county of Allegheny
in both cases, and the opinion ot Judge Pax-
son is to the effect that not only the citizens
of Pennsylvania but also citizens of other
states arc entitled to recover against the coun
ty of Allegheny for any goods destroyed by
the mob in the riot. The opinion, naturally,
covers a large number of points, but tho sub
stance of it is that given.
The southern republicans are organizing a
rebellion against the scheme of the stalwarts
to make a 'Solid North' by abandoning their
organization in the southern Hates so as to
be able to continue the cry of a 'Solid South.1
Quite a number of tho more influential south'
era republicans recently held a meeting at
W ashington for tho purpose of serving no
tice on tbe loaders of their party that in case
it became apparent that the purpose of the
managers is to array one section of the coun
try against another, representative southern
republicans will stump the northern states
against tho nominees of tbe party. Ex Sen
ator Pool of North Carolina, an oiiginal re
publican who represented his state in the U,
S. Senate during the reconstruction period,
was one of thoso in attendance at tho meeting
and took very strong ground against the scc
tiocaliziog poller of the stalwarts. It looks
as if the republican party might encounter
danger from a quarter in which its leaders
least expect it. Patriot.
Tbe scarcity of pennies has been felt all
through tbe country of late. Tbe Pbiladel
phia Ledger accounts fur it in this wise :
The revival of Business, which began
with the larger establishments, where but lit
tie use is made of the pennies has got down
to the smaller store, where penults and
small notes are Indispensable for "change,"
That is why there is an "unusual demaud'
for tbe one cent pieces. What a mischiev
ous piece of nonsense the Bland silver law
Is is showu by the fact that the Mints are so
busy coining the silver dollars that nobody
wants tbat tbey cannot supply tbe coins
that are really needed. As to the business
revival, iU effects are seen on all sides. At
a recent meeting of the directors of an edu
cational Institution iu this city, the directors
of wLicb have been exceptionally faithful
in their attendance during the last few years
a quorum could not be obtained because tho
majority nf tbe business men in tbe Board
were obliged to be at Ibeir work night aud
day. For the first time in two years the
complaint was ot too much to do and uf or'
ders far ahead of the capacity of some of the
largest mills and manufactories in tbe city,
That is the reason why more pennies are
wanted for change.
The Stale Treasury Ring.
THE ATTEMPT TO ItRVtVK A. CORRUPT AND
We have no Congressmen to elect in Penn
sylvania this fall ; no members of the Stat
Legislature, and no State officers with tbe
single exception of tbe State Treasurer, but
upon the choice of this officer important re
sults depend, lie Is by law the custodian of
alt moneys In the public treasury and re
sponsible fur their safe-keeping. In recent
years Republican Treasurers have had con
trol of millions nf dollars of balances, pre
sumably lying Idle In the Treasury vaults,
but in reality loaned out all over the State.
With the reviving business, which will
largely Increase the State revenuos, It is al
most certain there will be large balances un
der control of tho State Treasurer to be
elected In November, and who will assume
tbe duties nf tbe office In June next, succeed
ing Colonel Noyes, the present Democratic
Treasurer. Tho Democratic party holds
that this system of unexpended treasury
balances Is all wrong ; that they are a con
stant temptation and Invitation to the lib
erality and corruptlonof Legislators, as well
as a means of corrupt and unlawlul gain by
the State Treasurer, who Is tempted to use
them, as Republican Treasurers invariably
have done in this State for the past twenty
five years, for purposes of speculation. These
unexpended balances, the Democratlo party
holds, should be applied to the reduction of
the State debt, and if this cannot be advan
tageously done, then the taxes should be re
duced so that the revenues collected will
only be sufficient to defray the expenses of
tbe Government, economically administer
ed. We hold further, and our candidate for
State Treasurer, Daniel O. Barr, Esq., is
pledged to this course of administration, tbat
the State funds, remaining unexpended In
tbe public treasury, shall not be used for
speculative purposes, but sacredly guarded
to uiett all just and lawful demands of pub
He creditors. During the two years past
that the State Treasury has been under
Dem icratlc guardianship, there has been no
scandal as to Its management no Treasury
ring dispensing favors in the interest of a
political party or the section of a party I o
inlsapproprlati n (if the public funds. This
condition of alTalrs we desire to perpetuate,
and if the Democratic party is successful in
tbe flection of its candidate for State Treas
urer, the assurance can be confidently given
that it will be done.
How Is It with the Republican party and
Its candidate T With their success it is an
admitted fact, demonstrable by tbe control
ing influences of their convention and the
surroundings of their candidate, that the in
famous and corrupt Treasury riug which
dominated the politics and legislation of
Pennsylvania foryears, will be rehabilitated
iu all its power at Harrisburg. This can
not be gainsaid. It is in the air. The elec
tion of Mr. Butler will bring a revival of
tbe old Treasury ring, with all its demoral
izlng schemes of personal and political gain.
The ad-iption of the new Constitution and
the election of Colonel Noyes in 1S77, drove
the ring from the Treasury, but as the Re
publican Legislature has steadfastly refused
to pass tbe ueedel laws lor carrying out the
reforms ut the new Constitution let tbe Cam
eron Republican ring candidate for Treasurer
be elected this fall, and within a year tbe
nld combinations will be at their old work in
the Treasury and throughout the State.
From 1SC1 to 1877, with tbe exception of
two years,tlie 1'reasury ut tbe State has been
controlled by ringsters, some ol whom se
cured their election by the Legislature by
tbe must audacious bribery. This was the
golden period uf tbe Treasury ring's power.
It is reported uf one Treasurer that be paid
out iu one day, from his room al Harrisburg
over sixty thousand dollars for the legisla
tive votes that secured his nomination and
election as Treasurer fur oue year. The
salary attached to the office was but five
thousand dollars a year, and under tbe law
the Treasurer was not allowed to use a dol
lar of tbe State funds for speculative ot per
sonal purposes. But the Treasury ring cared
nothing fur the law or official oaths. At
times there were as bigU as three millions of
dollars of unexpended balances in the Treas
ury. This was tho bankiug capital of the
ring; the money it loaned outiu prosperous
times at slx,eight and ten per cent, interest.
The fact that a candidate could pay out, for
one year in the office, sixty thousand dollars
bribe money, sbuws tbe money there was in
the place for tbe ring. Treasury Mackey
lost, by the failure uf political friends with
whom he had deposited State fuuds,over one
hundred uud sixty thuusaud dollars iu a
single year, yet be promptly made the de
falcation good out of tlx proits uf his otber
operations with tho unexpended balances.
The Treasury ring, cuuducted a bauking
business witb tbe people's money, against
which uo legitimate bank iu tbe State could
successfully compete. Tneir capital was tbe
two or three millions iu tbe State Treasury,
and operatlug through tbe Legislature of
course corruptly tbey had uo difficulty in
securing laws maintaining the uuexpended
balance at tbe highest figures. They atlually
collected unnecessary taxes from th,e people that
they miyht tpeculale with the money I
Nor was this all. While the Treasury
ringsters amassed gieat wealth,' out of their
speculative operations in State funds, tbey
built up and consolidated the republican
party for years, and through tbat controlled
tbe State ; and tbe attempt is now being
made, through the election of the Ring can
didate lo. Treasurer, to reinstate this power
at the State Capital. Tbe ways of the Treas
ury ring in strengthening their political su
premacy were peculiar, aud were felt in
every county of the Sate where a needed
delegate to a convention or a desirable mem
ber of the Legislature waa to be chosen.
Deposits of State funds were alloted to
favored politicians to place In banks for their
own personal benefit ; and private banks,
or chartered banks, whose Influence It was
important to secure, were made depositories
aud allowed to make what profits tbey could
by loaning the people s money back to the pw
pie. It was by such methods, as well as by
bold, unblushing bribery, the Treasury ring
of Kemble aud Mackey,they being tbe lead'
Ing directors, was maintained and perpetU'
ated. Its hold on tbe politics of tbe State
waa firm and sweeping, fearfully deinoraliz'
ing. It controlled Ce Republican party in
convention and Legislature ; nominated aud
defeated candidates ; had a powerful Harris
burg lobby at its beck and nod, and tbe Re
publican press pensioned aud corrupted. It
was master of tbe State.
It is this Treasury r.ng that the Republi
can managers and jobbers propose to rein
state In power at Harrisburg. Theie bas
been an interregnum of honesty and square
dealing for a couple of years. But the riug
Is hungry for its old power aud its old gains,
The plan of operations was laid down at the
Republican State Convention, aud tbe first
step was the nomination, under tbe auspices
of Cameron, Quay, Kemble & Co., of Mr.
Butler of Chester county for State Treasuier,
Kemble, who promoted his nomination, was
a leading spirit of tbe Treasury comblna
tion when Mr. Mackey was at Its bead, as
well as during bis own term as State Treas
urer, when he amassid immense wealth on a
trifling salary, Butler is the chosen one of
the Ring. He Is allied with the legislative
corruptlonlsts. He moved In the Republican
caucus that Cameron's nomination for the
United States Senate should be made unani
mous, thus Ignoring and disregarding the
honest sentiment nf tbo Republicans of
Chester county. He voted against the ex
pulsion from the Legislature of the convict
ed briber ami lobbyist, Petroff, Ills especi
al friends and supporters In the Republican
Stato Convention njected with Insults and
contumely Wolfe's resolution demanding
honest men in office and denouncing the cor
rupt methods adopted to piss Kembte'a four
millions steal last winter. Obviously, In se
lecting Mr. Butler as their candidate for
Stato Treasurer.the Treasury ring knew what
It was about. It picked out a reliable man
for tho work proposed.
We turn from this dangerous and alarm
ing record of the Republican candldato for
State Treasurer,whlcb dearly shows his con
nection with the worst elements of the Re
publican party, to tho Democratic nominee,
Mr. Barr, and wo have overy assurance that
under his administration of the State Treas
ury the Constitution and laws will be rigidly
construed and Implicitly obeyed, In tbe
management of the State funds. There will
be no Treasury ring. The books of tbe of
fice will be open to the public. The unei
pended balance will not be banking capital
of a combination of reckless political and
financial speculators. Mr. Barr Is pledged
by tbe resolutions of the Democratic Con
vention, and by bis own record and declara
tions, to this course. And his election is the
one guarantee possible to the people of Penn
sylvania that the old Treasury ring will not
be revived in ail Its power and corruption.
This Is the most Important home issue on
which our people will vote In November,
Hon Chas. B. Brockway has sold his part
interest in the Bloomsburg Columbian, to
Mr. John K. Bittcnbcnder, and after some
thirteen years service, retires from tho edito
rial tripod to more fully devoto his time and
attention to tbe practice of law. Geo. K.
Elwell, Em , Mr. Brockway's late partner,
will assume the entire editorial conduct of tho
Columbian, and the firm namo hereafter
will be Elwell & Bittenbendcr. Mr. Brock
way has had large and varied experience as a
public man, having on several occasions rep
resented the Dcinocincy of Columbia county
in State Conventions and in the Stato Legit -
lature, and is a good lawyer, an able public
speaker, and an earnest Democrat. Williams
From last week's Columbian wc learn
that John K. Bittcnbcnder has purchased
Mr. Brockway's entire interest in tbat valua
ble paper. Mr. Bittenbeuder is a thorough
gentleman, and a most enterprising, artistic
printer ; his proprietary connection with that
popular fstabli.-hmcnt can but prove mutual
ly beneficial. Mr hlwcll still promises to
furnish unadulterated democratic thunder ;
"and tbe legal opuiiou. tbat have alono made
some numbers of tho Columbian worth more
than a year's cost to its subscribers, will bo
continued. Mr. Brockway's law business
and public duties will rccetvo bis whole at'
tention hereafter. Sulltean Jleview.
With last week's issue Cupt. C. B Brock-
way sovcrcd his conned iou with the Colum

years duriu? which time the Columbian has
maintained a leading position among the
Democratic journals of tho Stato. Our bus
iness relations have always been of the most
pleasant kind. We hope he may enjoy tho
exclusive practice of the law which we bc
lievo he proposes to fullow. Btoomibury Re
Tbe Columbian legal luminaries have
parted company it seems ; that last tremen
dous effort to be sarcastic on the Jiiteligcncer
must have 'busted' the concern. Cupt Brock

Capt. C. B. Brockway has disposed of bis
Interest in the Bloomsburg Columbian to

much improved in contents in the near future
We shall endeavor to have the hope of
Bro. Smith realized, and will take tho Inde
pendent Weekly for our model perhaps.
C B. Brockway, Vm , made his bow aud
gracefully retired from tbe Columian last
week, leaving bis partner, Geo. E. Elwell,
Esq,, to hereafter manage tho editorial de
partment alone. Mr. Elwell introduced to
his patrous a youug mau by the name of
John K. Bitteubcnder, who will in the fu
ture be associated with him in tho publica
tion of the paper, as 'a young man of ability
and energy, a graduate of tho Normal School,
and a practical printer of some years exper
ience,' and he might have added a graduate
from the Republican office of this town. He
will be obliged to compromise his politics a
good deal if Mr. Elwell allows him to enter
the political columns. Berwick Independent,
