1IANLAN AND COURTNEY..'
The boat race which was to have taken
place on the lCth inst, on -Lake Chatauqaa,
New York', between Ilanlan and Courtney,
came to an untimely end. On the evening of
tho 15th two men who had been looking af
ter Courtney's boat found that the boat house
had been entered and the boat sawed nearly
in two, rendering them useless, Courtney
refused to row in any other and so ilanlan

Courtney knew something about the injary

NO NONSENSE NOW.
Tho campaign thus far has been a quiet
ono. Very few if any laigo meetings havo
been held through tho state, and ns it is an
on year' it is not likely that thero will bo
many grand demonstrations. Hut this is no
reason why Democrats should remain passivo
nd quietly permit the enemy to canturo
their camp while they are asleep. About ten
days remain yet in which to wo'rk, and this
time must bo improved. Wo must not closo
our eyes to tho fact that there Is danger of
defeat unless wo aro prepared for the situa
tion. In our local affairs things aro some
what mixed. Wo liayo as candidates for
sheriff A, K.Smith, tho regular Democratic
nominee, llcfco Fsitman, tho regular no
publican nominee, U. II. Knt, tho Greenback
candidate, Aaron Smith, the Temperance
candidate, and other men running independ
ently whoso chances are so far out of sight
that it is hardly worth whilo to count them
Of all theso, thero aro but two whoso chancos
of election are worth considering, viz : A
K.-Smith and lleeco I1 airman. Mr. Smith
was fairly nominated. Ho has stood by tho
old party for years, and whou it refused to
make him its nomiuco on eoveral former oc
casions, he gracefully, submitted and cheer
fully gave his support to his successful com.
petitor. Thero is no good reason why ho
should not receive every Democratic vote in
tho couuty. On tho contrary, thero aro
many reasons why he should bo sustained.
Ho is an earnest democrat, n good business
man, and will make an efficient officer. Ho
can only bo defeated by democratic votes.
It has always been tho, policy of rcpuMi
cans, when they are in the minority, to raise
up as many new parties, and as many inde
pendent candidates as possible, in order to
draw votes from the democrats, while they
themselves stick closely to their ticket They
are playing their old game in Columbia coun
ty to-day. They are encouraging independ
ents with tho promise of republican votes to
help them, but tho very fact that they havo
ruado a nomination ot tneir own, proves
clearly that they do not intend to do anything
of tho kind. Again, tbey have selected men
for their tools whom they know can command
no republican votes, so that tho draft will be
entirely from the democrats, llepublican
Grccnbackers were careful to see that a dem
ocrat was nominated on their ticket, but oh
election day these same men will turn their
backs upon their candidate and vote solidly
lor the republican nominees. That is what
they did in Ohio, three-fourths of the green
back voto being cast for the republican tick
et after having previously endorsed the dem
ocratic nominees, and it is what they intend
to do in Columbia county. Democrats who
ave affiliated with the Greenback party
here will find themselves sold and deceived
by their pretended brethren on the 4th of
November, unless they are wise enough to
get oat of the republican trap that has been
set to catch them.
We have but few words to say regarding
tho Temperance candidate. lie was once
elected sheriff as a bolter, against an unpop
ular oandidate, by democratic votes, and
thcreforo ought not to ask the office again,
He does not deserve it from democrats, as ho
sought tho endorsement of tho Republican
county convention, and thus showed himself
willing to become the regular Republican
candidate. Will Democrats voto for such a
As to the little side show that is being car
ried on by independents wo havo only to say
that none of them should receive any coun
tenance or support from the party they are
seeking to disorganize and betray. There is,
then, but one course for democrats to pursue
and that is stick to the ticket, and not only
that, but work for it, Voting for anyone but
your nominee simply helps to elect the re
publican candidate. Apathy and indiffer
ence will bring about the same result. If you
vote for anyone but A K. Smith tor sheriff
you throw away your ballot on a man who
cannot be elected, and at the same time in
crease tho chances of Fairman by diminish
ing the vote of Smith.
But all this is only precautionary. Wo do
not believe that the Democracy of old Co
lumbia will allow themselves to bo deceived
and swindled out of a sheriff by radical tricks.
They havo too much good sense and
party principle for anything of tho kind
and wo therefore look for the election of A,
K. Smith' as sheriff of Columbia county for
the next three years, by the usual democrat
TO THE SOUTU SIDE.
The Democratic party in this county last
fall polled on their candidate for Governor
three thousand two hundred and seventy
eight votes, and to make up this number
the Democrats of the south side of the river
oast ten hundred and sixty .nine votes, just
twenty-three votes over .one third the whole
number. The Greenback vote on their
candidate for Governor at the same election
on the South side amounted to three bun
dred and eighty-two. In Beaver township,
Mason, the Greenback Governor candid
ate, received seven votts, Locust gave him
ten, Franklin, Main and Mifflin, but four
each. Down in the Conynghams, amongst
the miners, the Democratic candidate for
Governor received only seventy five votes
out' of a poll of three hundred and thirteen
But this was expected, as the Labor-Union
Greenback question in that particular local i
ty was constantly being agitated during the
whole campaign. It has been reported that
the South side will not do her whole duty
this tall on our State and County ticket
This we can hardly credit. . The South sld
should have no grievances at this time, as
they had no candidates of their own before
the convention, to receife nominations or,
suffer defeat therefore it is nothlug more
than their plain duty to give tlie whole
Democratic ticket their full and hearty sup
port. The vote on the South side will b
more closely examined this fall than at pre
vious elections, from the very fast that th
office of Sheriff and that of Treasurer will
be claimed by the democracy of that side
for the next term. The townships falling
back now, cannot come forward and deman
support from the party la the future.wlth
very good grace, if tbey allow this sort of
thing to happen when It is in their power to
prevent It. We feel confident that the South
side will do her duty and do It well, on
will not do anything else, while two thirds
of the democracy ot the county are looking
for n good report from her Bide.

A Corript Lobby.
AND THE ATTEMPT OF THE REPUBLICAN
PARTY TO REINSTATE IT IN POWER.
Tho Constitution of 1873, adopted by the
people of Pennsylvania by an overwhelm
ing majority, was intended to be a death
blow to the corrupt lobby which for many
years had made legislation a matter of bar
ter and sate at Uarrlsburg. Half the abuses
nd wrongs of the sjBtem have never been
told. It demoralised the politics and legis
lation of the Stati, and plastered the Com
monwealth over, from' the Delaware to the
Ohio, wlth.speclal privileges to a favored
few, which were auctioned off to the high
est bidders, to embarrass and oppress future
generations. A regular trade In special leg-
latlon sprung up, and out of this grew tho
legislative lobby, mainly composed of lead
ng and influential Republicans, for that
party had coutrol of the Legislature, and tho
Executive. The lobby was a section of the
By the Constitution of ,1873 special leg
slatton was abolished, and the offense of
bribery by members of the Legislature and
the "corrupt solicitation" of members by the
lobby, made a high offense punishable by
no and imprisonment. The people deemed
they had achieved a great victory and re
deemed the State from the obloquy which
rested on It bv theso salutary reforms, To
certain extent they had ; but at the ses
sion of the Legislature in 187G a powerful
lobby Invaded the Statt capital and attempt
ed, by corrupt solicitation, to control a bill
affecting the Susquehanna Boom Company,
The House of Representatives at that time
was Democratic, and as the attempt at cor
ruption concerned its integrity, the Demo
cratlc Speaker of, the House demanded a
Committee of Investigation. It was granted
with Hon. Joseph Hayes, Democrat, of
Allegheny county, as. Chairman. Among
its members was Hon. Charles S. Wolfe, Re
publican, of Union county. This committee
prosecuted .its researches witli unflagging
energy and a determination to expose and
punish the guilty, Evidence was accumu
lated which showed an organized movement
to debauch the Legislature. The committee
reported in favor of the expulsion of two
members, l'elrofl. Republican, and Lynott,
Democrat, for bribery and corruption, and
they were expelled by a two-thirds majority
of the members of the House. Lynott was
allowed by his constituents to sink into ob
scurity, but the Republicans of Philadelphia
took up the case of Petroff and twice re
elected him to the Legislature.
The action of the Democratic House in
1876 illustrated the Democratic method of
disposing of legislative corruption. It was
promptly exposed, and summarily punished
regardless 'of party affiliation. It was a dis
agreeable duty, but cleared the atmosphere
and showed the people of the State that the
anti-bribery prohibitions of their new con
stitution were not mere idle words. It was
hailed as a greatjvictory for honesty in poli
tics uud legislation.
Let us look for a moment at the record the
Republicaus have made on this .same vital
question. It is not necessary to recapkutate
the evldeuces.of a rrupt solicitation ut liar

county four million riot damage bill. They
are fresh in the memories of the people.
powerful lobby, acting under the direction
of ex-S'-ate Treasurer Kemble, a noted and
influential Republican politician and the
Pennsylvania member of the National Re
publican Committee, laid siege to the Leg
islature, and organized a corrupt conspiracy
to promote the passage of the bill by the
use ol money. Associated with Kemble
were noted Republicans in and out of the
Legislature. The claim was put in for four
millions of dollars, although the riot dam
ages proposed to be made good did not ex
ceed two millions and a half, leaving a clear
profit to the lobby brigands of a million and
a half of dollars, to be taken from the pub
lic treasury at a time when the people were
bravely struggling with the ruinous depres
sion of all business and industries, following
the panic ot 1873.' Little cared the lobby
thieves. The charges preferred against
Kemble and bis lobby forced the Republican
House to take the matter up. A committee
was raised, and after a searching investiga
tion, reported to the House evidence war
ranting the expulsion of four members, and
among the number the same Pe'roff who was
expelled-by the Democratic House of lffrfi
for bribery. The evidence against the mem
bers implicated was of the most positive
character.aud considered by fair minded men
conclusive of their guilt. But the lobby was
too powerful with the Republican House,
and it refused to expel the corrupt members,
Tbey bold seats iu the House of Represents
Uvea to-day as law-makers fur the- honest
peoplo of Pennsylvania I Add it is a fact
of great importance, in view of the coming
election for State Treasurer, that Mr. Butler
of Chester county, the Republican candid-
ate for that office, as a member of the House
voted against the expulsion of the members
convicted of bribery, including Petroff, who
bad been expelled from the House in 1876,
and .was therefore an old offender, doirving
no consideration or mercy.
This illustrates the Republican method of
dealing with the criminals who seek tore
establish at HarrUburg, the rule of corrup
tion and bribery that prevailed about tho
Legislature prior to the adoption of the new
Constitution. The reason of this consider
ation shown the lobby is obvious. Its di
rectors and members were leading and jn
iluentlal members of the Republican party,
Tbey controlled its action.
We say nothing at this time about th
criminal proceedings pending in the Dau
phin county criminal court against Kemble
and other Republican politicians for bribery
and perjury, for it would be improper to
discuss them in advance of judicial action
The trials, however, have been put off until
after the election.
Mure Important than auything stated
above as to the disposition of the Democrat!'
party to enforce and of the Republican party
to nullify the anti-corruption safe guards of
the new constitution, was the action of lb
State Conventions of the two parties iu July
last. The corrupt practices at Harrisburg
bad become matter of State notoriety and

adopted by the Republican Stato Conven
tion, at Harrisburg, in 1876, which demands
"honest men in cilice men with brains
enough to know dishonesty when they see it
and courage enough to fight it wheresoever
they fiud it,"
This resolution met with a chilling re
ception. Mr. Keuille's lawyer in the chair
refused to have It read, but being overruled
n this by the pertinacity of Mr, Wolfe,who
was hooted at and Insulted for his manly

of "Hooten's gag." No alltitjan was made
in the Republican platform to what was the
engrossing subject with all Intelligent citi
zens of the State. The Kemble lobby ruled
the Convention, dictated the platform and
nominated the candidate.
All this unmistakably shows what we set
out to make plain ; the position ofthettto
parties in this State on the most important
home question to be decided by the election
this fall the question of honesty or corrup
tionasa controlling power in legislation.

Tho Supreme Comt at Pittsburg, has de
cided the celebrated Stack O'Hara case, in
favor of tho priest, Stack. The case is a
peculiar and important one, involving, as it
docs, the authority of a bishop over a priest,
Stack was a priest at Williamsport, and about
six years ago was dismissed by Bishop O'
Hara from the office without accusation or
chareo of any- kind against him. Ho toek
the matter to court, but beforo a decision was
reached a new priest was installed who met
with favor !h tho eyes of the congregation
and the court did not liko to turn him out.
The decision, however, was that O'Hara had
no. right to remove him. Bishop O Ham
did not like this decision and applied for a
reargument and the case has been dragging
its weary length along all this whilo. Last
June the case was argued before the Su
p. -erne Court, counsel appearing for Lath
er Stack, the Bishop being represented
by Geo. W. Biddle, Esq., of Philadelphia
and J. 0.. Parker, Esq, of 'Willianisport.
Recently the Supremo Court rendered a de
cision that the action of Bishop O'Hara in
removing Father Stack was illegal and b
yond his authority and that Stack has the
right of action for damages. This settles the
dispute whether a bishop can remove a priest
