SWINDLERS. THE I'ROQRESS THAT HAS
BEEN MADE. THE WAR NOT YET
ENDED. A QIQANTIC BROKERS
The good that has been accomplished.and
that wi'l be accomplished, by Postmaster
General Key's starting out war on speciou
awindlers can scarcely be estimated. Thous
nnds of men in this country carry on ex
teii-ive business with purchasers and clients
whom they have neverseen. Their busi
nc?s is legitimate and honest, but it suffer;
more or less from a comparison with these
fraudulent concerns which are the object of
postmaster General Key's attack. The
lotterie's. land many other confidence
Achouies, that Judge Key has throttled
very ;truly plead that their business has
been the scource of an immense revenue to
the QOvernmeuUhrough the Post-Office de
partment. But if this plea was worthy of
consideration, it might be answered, that
bv debauching tho mails, and abusing bus-
iness confidence would have accrued to the
Government through the channels of legit
imate business. If men all over the country

secute a claim, secure a patent or pension
could believe that advertisers do just what
they advertise to do, business through th
mails would he immensely augmented, and
the vexed problem of the elimination of
the superfluous "middle man'1 would be i
a measure solved ; confidence would be re
stored, and a much better class of advertt
era would find tho press an indispenslbl
medium of communication. Judge Key
work, is not vet completed, but it is pro
greasing, and is doubtless already reaching
in healthful extirpation far beyond the so
called firms that he has denuded of power
to null greenhorns through the mails.
A gigantic brokers swindle has recently
been uuearthed in New York. Sometime
ago the attention of the Postoflice Depart
ment was called to a circular purporting to
be issued by "Lawrence & Co', Bankers and
Brokers." It was filled with seductivo word
nd accounts of poor men who had become
suddenly rich through stock speculations,
One instance in particular was given ot
clerk in the PostDfOco Department here,who
had intrusted S100 to the firm named, and
by allowing it to be continuously invested
had realized no less than S2G.000, The cir
cular was headed wtih a wood-cut of a largi
building, with several smaller houses by its
side.aud the New "York custom house in th
distance. On the wall of the large bull
dlug the words "Lawrence & Co,, Bankers
AIHrokers were conspicuously displayed
Convinced that the firm, If It really Jexlsted
was engaged in deceiving the public, th
Department authorized its special agent
in New York to investigate the matter and
report. Tho result has been to unearth one
of the largest if not the most extensive
gwindling concerns in tho country.
The list of swindling concerns published
by the Post office Department is already large
and mauy additions will be made before the
'weeding-out'is completed. Meanwhile many
wbohave so far escaped the vigilence of Judge
Key, are fleeing, of their own accord, irom
the wrath to come. A too trustful public
has been put on its guard, and poor men
and omen, who have given their earnings
lu the feverish hope of speedy fortune, have
been taught another lesson in the educatiou
that tho only way for them lies through In
dustry and economy. Honest advertisers

un delivers himself up for the mur
der of ounsino, ik 1876. .
The vicinity of Centralia and Dark Cor
ners in the lower end of this county was
thrown into great excitement last Sunday
fternoon by the reappearance of hdward
Curloy, and his surrender to the officers of
the law. He left there very suddenly about
two years ago with the suspicion resting on
him ol having been concerned in tho beat-
Ing of an old man named John Gunning on
2Glh of Jtily,187C, which had resulted In his
death a week later. Tho crime, it is tip
posed, was prompted by tho dying remnant
of Mollle Majr,uireism and Curley was the
man who executed the behests of that dread
oclety. The beating occuired on the night
of the day mentioned in a dark and lonely
pot on the road near Centralia. The per
petrators wero not discovered, but circuni-
stantlal evidence pointed to Curley and he
eft that vicinity. During tho two years
since ho has been wandering over tho coun
try and how he subsisted he alone knows.
In that time ho ventured homo once under
the cover of heavy disguise and on a dark
night to see tils family. His wife on that
occasion urged him to surrender and squeal
as was tho fashion among Mollies at that
period. At first he refused to do so, but as
ho roamed to nnd fro the idea gradually be
came more to his liking and he finally le
solved to take that course. At noon Sunday
he appeared at the residence of 'Squire C,
G. Murphy, whom he astonished by slating
his purpose in calling. The 'squire resolved
to give him a hearing before committing lilm
and it was not very loog before his office
was crowded with people, while the excite'
ment through the town rau high. While
tho hearing was In progress a scene occurred
which intensified the excitement and came
near putting a climax to it. Michael Bro
gan, a young man who bears a bad reputa
tion as a ruffian and a rogue, entered the of
fice Ktid after acting in a violent manner for
some time drew a pistol and denouncing Cur
ley in the bitterest terms attempted to fire
on him. Special police officers bad by this
time been sworn . in, and acting promptly
ejected Brogan from the room and warned
him to stay away from the place. Brogan
feelings in the matter are explained by the
fact that about nlno months ago ho married
a daughter of Gunning, lie was denounced
and excommunicated by the parish priest on
New Year's day, as a rogue of theworstor-
der. At the conclusion of the hearing Jus
tice Murphy made out a commitment for
Curley. He intimated a number of times,
that it was bis intention to turn states evi
dence, and promised to make it warm for
number of the residents of that locality,
Should he carry out his threats de
velopments as rare as those which marked
the trial of Hester, Tully and McHugh may
be expected, and a revival of the interest in
the crimes of the Mollie Maguires may be

A correspondent at Augusta, Me, tele

The Governor looks more cheerful
night than when he arrived here this fore-
uoon. His ideas, so far as could be gatb
ered in conversation this evening, have not
been changed by the event of Saturday,
He will do nothing more, simply leaving
the new legislature to settle the contested
seats with all the light they can obtain
But he will issue no address, as was cu
rently reported this afternoon. He feel
tired and worn, and will lay down
cares of office on Wednesday without
sigh. The governor, who Is always ready
to.defeud bis action, thinks one point of im
portance has not been sufficiently noticed
and he said to-night that during his re
marks at Waterville Saturday evening he
stated Borne facts of peculiar significant
aud which he considers an answer to
large proportion of the buncombe which
has filled the public press for several weeks
past. It has been stated over and ov
again, ho says, that none bit tho return

nine towns aud plantations. Of these
fifty-nine towns thirty were democratic

had tie votes. The difference between the
aggregate majorities In the republican an
democratic towns was 142 votes against the
republicans. That is, the republicans lost
142 votes more in the twenty beven towns
than the democrats lost in thirty towns
This comparison embraces the defects of all
kinds for which the returns were rejected
and shows the results, he maintains, of an
impartial application of the rules of action

The Democratic Emergency.
The probability of the nomination of
Grant imposes upon tho Democratic party a
responsibility above and beyond all ordinary
considerations of partisan success. Political
parties ought to be judged by their efforts to
eserve success. If tho Democratic leaders
by their prudence, moderation, and wisdom,
are able to meet the reasonable expectations
f their countrymen, the election of their
candidate will be assured.
Tho duty of the Democratic party In this
emergency is clear. It must make so plain
its patriotic purposes tliaf'a wayfaring man,
though a fool, may read ns he runs." It
must first of all comprehend that it Is not as
strong as it was iu 1S7G. The Credit Mo-
blllcr exposure first compelled lione t men,

to stop and consider. What food for thought

A Democratic House of Representative!',
with almost two-thirds majority, was elected
in 1874, just two years after tho Credit Mo
bilier revelations startled the people into a
convincing knowledge of the moral turpitude
of Republican leaders. Besides bringing
Belknap to the bar of the Senate for high
crimes and misdemeanors in office, scores of
other lesser rogues were brought to grief by
that Democratic Uouse.and in addition to it,

From the first day of January, 1873, down
to the close of tho Presid ntial campaign of

the defensive by these successive exposures

cratic House of the Forty-fourth Congress,
The damning villainy of the carpet bag
Governments in Mississippi, Louisiana, and
South Carolina were during this same period
becoming every day more and more appar
ent to the Northern mind. The bitterest
Republican partisan could hardly muster the
courage to defend the policy of force and
fraud by which these vampires were kept i
power. It was a renegade Democrat a man
without respect in his profession, and whose
social crimes were without parallel In the
worst days of Roman debauchery who bad
the effrontery to attempt a defence of Grant's
order by which a legally elected Legislature
was ejected at the point of the bayonet from
The political situation of 1860 is not that
of 1870. The last vestige of carpet bag rul
in the South was eliminated by the result of
1870. Sympathy for a people afflicted aa the
citizens of Louisiana, Mississippi, and South
Carolina were had a great deal to do with
Republican disaffection at the North from
1874 to 1870.
The alacrity with which Southern Demo
cratic leaders responded to the overtures o
Hayes Republicans to sacrifice Tilden for the
State Government of Louisiana and South
Carolina thus solidifying the South made
a very untavorable impression on the North
ern Independent Republicans and disgusted
many Northern Democrats. Having got
possession ot their State Governments
which undoubtedly belonged to them, and
which would have been theirs without even
the semblance of a bargain the people of
Louisiana and South Carolina have not met
the expectations of their Northern friends.
The tissue ballot frauds of South Carolina
were inexcusable, but election frauds are not
peculiarly a Southern product. Repudia
tion, however, just now appears to be alto
gether too popular at the South. Louisiana,
Tennessee, and Virginia have inflicted a
greater injury upon themselves ami the Dem
ocratic party than 'he war of the rebellion
did Far be it from me to bold the whole
Southern people responsible for these local
events. These events, however, have ex
erted an influence in shaping the politics of
The nationalDemomtlc party would have
been but slightly injured by these compara
tively trivial events had tbo Democratic
Representatives in Congress been true to the
cause of reform. That large and rapidly
growing element iu the politics of to-day
the men who care little, if at all, for party
ties very naturally conclude that if the
Democratic majority in Congress disregards
its reform professions a Democratic Admin
istration would do like-wise. Incidents in
themselves trivial assume an undue impor
tance if the public is inclined to regard
them as party characteristics. Unfortunate
ly for the Democrats, their majority in the
House of Representatives twice blundered
in selecting the third officer of that body,
In both cases the persons elected Doorkeep
er were from the South, They were of course
unknown to four-fifths of the Democratic
Representatives, but their character and
ability were vouched for by the delegations
from their respective States.and the endorse
ment was accepted by tho caucus. Both men
were incapables, and were dismissed after
they had been proved guilty of acts de
rogatory of the dignity and honor of the
House of Representatives.
Southern Congressmen lament the fact
that tbey are overrun with applicants for
office. A considerable percentage of their
constituents, impoverished by the war, with
out capacity for business pursuits, and un
fitted for manual labor, look to State or na
tional Governments for their support. These
things, Insignificant as they are, have led a
very large and intelligent class ot people to
believe that a Democratic, administration
would be powerless to effect reform, because
the Democratic machine would be no Im
provement on the Republican machine.
Then, again, almost every scheme tor the
profligate expenditure of the public money
has been chatuplontd by Southern Demo
crats, aud if successful It was by their votes.
Fortunately for the country, such monstrous
swindles as the Texas and Pacific and the
Brazilian mall subsidies have been defeated
by a combination of the best elements of
both parties. The rlyer and harbor appro
priations, which grew to gigantic, proportions
nder Republican ausnices.havo grown larg
er since the Democrats took charge of the
public purse. But corporal's guard of
Southern and Northern Democrats have had
the courago to resist those shameful bills.
Northern Democrats, as a rule, have been
as greedy for large appropriations for their
district as their Southern colleagues. Re
publicans and Democrats unite, and by dis
graceful logrolling millions are annually
squandered upon so-called national improve
Little by little the Democratic majority in
Congress has been drifting away from the
reform policy which, In obedience to pnpu-
ar demand, was so worthily began In 1874,
The vast reduction in national expenditures,
which the Democratic House of the Forty-
fourth Congress accomplished, could In de
creased proportions have been continued,
But tbcro was a perceptibloretrograde move
ment in the Forty-fifth Congress, and with
both Houses Democratic, no improvement Is
thus far promised by the Forty-sixth Cou
grcss, The influence of the Domocratic rings
and jobbers is beginning to be noticeable.
The manifest absence of elevated statesman
ship, of commanding ability, of efficient
leadership in tho Senate and the House is
most disheartening. Personal jealousies and
Presidential rivalries have a controlling In
fluence in shaping the party policy.
Tho secret history of the Intrigues which
were successful In compelling the extra ses
sion has not been written. Three Independ
ent motives Inspired them. The first and
most potent was a determination to defeat
Randall's re election to the Speakership.
Personal pique, sectional feeling and job
bery inspired the fight against Randall. The
second was a movement to create new issues
for 1880, and was directed chiefly by the
friends of Thurman, although the chief op
ponents of Tilden cordially assisted Mr.
Randall, as an avowed friend of Tilden,had,
of course, the enmity of his enemies. The
third was greed for the Senate patronage and
the control of the perquisites and stealings
of the Government Printing Office.
There were a few blathering idiots from
the South mere bangers on the lobby here
who intemperately demanded the defeat
of Randall because he was the friend of Til
den, who had mortally offended them by de
daring against Southern war claims. For
three years and a half the Democratic rep
resentatives have made it seem as though
their party was steadily drifting away from
the relorm policy which made success
possible in 1876. Possibly they may sharp
ly recover the lost ground, but is not six
months too short a period in which-to satisfy
the public that their repentance is gennine
Unfortunately, while the national Democra
cy has been driving off elements of moral
strength, corrupt local politicians In New
York and Pennsylvania have been doing
their utmost to disgust all decent men with
the very name of Democracy.
It is true that the nomination of Grant for
a third term should make it possible for th
Democratic party to elect any reasonably
good Northern Union Democrat. He must
be a man acceptable to patriotic Republi
cans. He must, be a mau of known moral
courage. He must have a record, and one
that gives positive assurance that in each an
every one of these particulars he is above
suspicion. JV. Y. Sun.
