In favor with the Democracy of this State,

On Friday Inst, the. name of C. 1 .Tad

Dis'rlct, was lfjccted, Jadwln is a Hepubll

devnnt, of Wilkes liarre, will next be sent
in, and there Is a probability that he will
ba confirmed. If not, it will likely be some
other Republican. John M. Clark, who wa
first named for the office, is in eveiy way
qualified fur it, a fact admitted by every
body. The district, it was understood, wa
to liavo a Democratic supervisor. If now
ve are to liavo a Republican to till tlif
place, wo shall be indebted to Senator Wil
liam A. Walhco for it, Clark could have
been confirmed without any difficulty but
for Wallace, and we are assured on good au
thority tha Wallace promised Klotz that
he would make no opposition. How In
kept that) promise we all novv.

"Why Is It" that the subscription list of
the Colu.mman is constantly increasing
and expressions of friendliness como to u
from good Democrats from all parts of the
county? It is bccauo the Democrats know
that we are not afraid to champion any man
or principle which the party has endorsid,
and that we do not fear to demand reloim
of evils wherever they exist. "Why is it1
that the Republican party is weaker to-day
In the county in proportion to the popula
tion than it was some years ago? It is bo
cause that party has no organ or leaders ii
which they have any confidence, and never
know when they will bo betrayed for a "111

History shows that a centralization ol
power has always resulted lu the overthrow
of the liberties of the people. Since the
Republican party has been in power, it has
been constantly aiming at centralization. It
has defied the constitution, ignored thi
rights of States, procured partisan construe
tions of tho laws from Its judges, and ac
corded to the Executive far more authority
than was ever contemplated by the founder
of the government. They have but two
more steps to take; first, to elect Grant to
the Presidency for a third term, thus over
riding one of the most sacred of the unwrit
ten laws of the.land, and if they succeed
this, to declare him Kmperor, thus securing
to themselves continuous authority which
will obviate the necessity of their running
the risk of losing control every four years.
Their programme has been fully disclosed
and the tour of Grant around the world.

DEATH (JF HON'. JOHN McKEVNOLDS.
John McReynolds was born in Northum
berland county, near Watsontown, April 3,
1788, and died in Iiloomsburg, Columbia
county, March 14, 1880.
He was a man of great probity and force
of character, and was a politician of the el
der type, when mere personal aggrandizs
ment was not the main business of life,
The political history of Columbia county
for the last fifty years would be lirgely
history of John Mclleynolds. Aud yet h
did not come, even locally prominent, until
he was a man of some age. He was
adroit manager of men, so much so that his
followers mostly believed that they
were carrying out their own views am
He represented the County of Columbia
in the Legislature of Pennsylvania, with
Eli Thornton in 1824 with Christian Probst
in 1825-with William Jlcliride in 1820-
wlth Christian Probst in 1827 with Joh
Kobison in 1828. He was defeated in 1849
by Benjamin P. Fortuer, but was elected
in 1850 over 0. 1). Iiowman.
He was the Democratic candidate for
Congress, in the district composed of tb
counties of Columbia, Montour, Luzerne
and Wyoming in the fall of 1858, but was
beaten by George W, Scranton.
He was nominated and elected to the of
fice of Associate Judge of Columbia county
and was commissioned November 23, 1SC1
for the term of five years, which office h
filled with dignity to tho satisfaction of hi:
constituents for its full period.
He was a member of the Electoral college
when Pearce was elected President, was Su
pervisor of the North Branch of the Penn
sylvania canal under Governor Porter for
two years, was afterwards collector for the
same for three years at Berwick; revenuo
commissioner for two years, an office now
abolished. Judge McReynolds is the last of
a family of nine children, two of which
were older than he. All lived to be over
seventy years of age, except one sister, who
died in infancy.
Thus at the age of 78 years, Hon John
AlcKeynolds, retired from active life. But
retaining his faculties to tho last, he has en
joyed constantly, the society of his friends,
and the attention of his Immediate family.
If there were ever any political asperities
they have been long forgotten for his con
freres have all gone before him, and the pol

Washington,.!) C. March lr.th, ISSO.
Duiing the past week, betides listening to
the I'll. John Porter debate, the senato has
done little beyond passing General Bum
side's amusing bill to provide Instruction
In moral and social science In the schools
of the Dl-trlct of Columbia under the di
rection cf the Commissioner of Education.
In the House Mr. Wood has been permitted
to explain the new Funding bill, and has
received a sharp intimation that tho inaction
of his committee In regard to tho tariff Is
not acceptable to a possible majority ol tho
House. By far the most Important action,
however, has been the passage of a bill
amendatory of the act of March 3, 187C,
regulating the removal of cases from State
to federal courts. Its effect Is not only to
restrict the facilities aflorded by that act,
but, as one of its general supporters admit
ted, to alter the Judiciary act of 1879, by
limiting the original cognizance of the
Circuit Courts In civil sults.whether at com

It was advocated at length by Mr. Town

pending to repeal utterly the law authoriz

encroachment of tho Federal upon tho state
Thoso who expect an adjournment befoto
the 4th ol July will probably be disap
pointed. All the heavlcBt of the appropri
ation bills are yet to be reported. Besides
these bills tho House has before it a vast
a-nount of other business. There are in
the Committee of the whole House 109 bills
and other propositions, on the House calen
dar thirty-two bills, etc., nnd over 250 bills
on the private calendar. There are on the
table over 100 bills from the Senate. Some
nf these bills are of great importance, and
members interested in them will make a
fight for them even as against the appropri
ation bills. Among the most important
bills in Committee of the whole are the
printing bill, the bill to repeal tho taxes on
leat tobacco In the hands of the producers,
the bill to pension soldiers of tho Mexican
ar, several bills relating to coinage, and
large number for the construction of public
buildings in different parts of the country,
On the house calendar the bill for tho re
lief of Gen. Fitz John Porter,the bills regu
lating the inter-State commerce and othe
important measures. Besides this it is not
unlikely that in deference to sentiment of the
House the Committee of Ways and Means
will be compelled to reverse its action and
report some tariff legislation, relating cs
pecially to paper, sugar, and salt. Under

WHY IS IT ?
Editors Columbian :
In the Colu.mman of the 12th Inst., ypu
make tho above inquiry, and then proceed
to give some thoughts in regard to old-time
majorities in this county. I agree with you
that the candidates depend too much upon a
nomination, and do nothing afterward
Why is it? In my opinion, in nine caseB
out of ten, men get the nomination who can
do nothing after the nomination. Men will
travel the county for months, spend money
freely, and perhaps fail and feel sore, and
cry lraud. A man in this county, now dead
told me he traveled weeks, stent seven hun
dred dollars and got three whole delegates,
Suppose we reverse the order of things:
make a rule that no person, by himself or
friends, that travels and solicits a nomina
tion, shall be eligible to such office, aud that
amau when nommated.whojrefusr s to travel
hold meetings, or cause them to be held
aud in every legitimate manner possible,
works for the party shall not be entitled to
a nomination. There was a time when a
Democrat would be suspected of being un
true to principle, if he was found working
wuu tne opposition.
iNovv how Is it? Democrats are found
working with the opposition in every iiossi
hie way to the hurt of their own party,
now are you to nominate honest men? It
can only be done by honest means. I hold
that It is not honest to buy votes, whether it
be by money or jugs full. Money left with
farmertnerc'iantsor at hotels to be used ex
cept as provided by law is dishonest.
It can be'proveu that persons have trav
eled this county with jugs of whiskey in
their buggies and bottles in their pockets,
It is a notorious fact that some at least of
our nominations are conceived in sin.
born in iniquity, and defeated through ras
cality. I can not agree when you urge men
to work for themselves. Let a man work for
tho principles involved, and leave the result
with the party. Our present Rules of Con
vention are calculated to cure all tho ills of
the Democratic party, but in the last can
vass were entirely ignored, and the cry of
fraud never investigated. I agree with you
that something must be done, if wo expect
to secure old-time majorities in this county
To that end let there be a rallying of Demo
crats who want no office. Let them see that
no man is upon the ticket unfairly, or if
upon the ticket, bring him to the bar of the
rules of investigation. Make open public
isiues, and ask candidates to stand or fall by
them. There are principles involved in the
coming campaign. How will we meet them?
Will we stand firm, shoulder to shoulder, or
will we act each for himself? Let there be
a rallying of the men In this county who
have been driven out of politics, by in
trigues and office hunters, repair the breach
made last fall by our enemies, aud pave the
way for an old-time Democratic majority,
iVs soon as our enemies fiud us united, all
working for principle not men, then shall
we cease to hear the question, "Why is it ?"

A.STUI1Y OF LINCOLN.
J. S. Brisbln gives the following to tho
Philadelphia Times :
Oue day not long after Mr, Lincoln is
sued his Emancipation Proclamation, Mr.
Wade came in, laughing all ever his face
"Well, Old Abe has just done tho damn
edest thing you ever heard of. He has giv
en out he has the small-pox to keep tho pol
iticians and offici seekers away from the
The story ran tliu: Mr. Wade weutto
the White Houo to see Mr. Lincoln, who
had been ill. He fmid the President a lit
tle pal-", hut j illy as ho could be.
'Sit down, Wade, I am glad to see yu.
Oh, 1 have the funniost thing to tell you; it
will make )ou laurli. 1 never did such a
thing before in my life, and never will
azain. Then the President laughed until
the tears ran down his cheeks,
"Now, Wade," ho mi.l, "ynti are not to
repeat this outside, for it would give offense,
aud it by no manner of means comports
wi'h the dignity which Is supposed to hedge
a President about. The doctor put nie up
to it to rid mysell'of a bore; I ought not to
have dune it, but I couldn't help It, it was
so tunny. You know I have been ill, and a
great many people have wondered what
ailed me, but none of them could find out.
The truth is 1 was worried to death and
talked sick, pretty much by one man, the
most everlasting bore you t-ver saw who
wanted an office. I knew he would come
again as soon as I was able to sit up, and
the doctor put me to bed to get rid of him
by saying I had the small-pox. I only go1
out j'tsterday,aud sure enough, this morn
ing he called on me. I had determined to
be polite to him, but he stayed so long, tho
humor seized me and I determined to send
for the doctor. Giving him the wink, I held
out my hand and inquired :
"Doctor, what marks are those on my
"That's varioloid, or mild small-pox,"
said the doctor?"
"Well," said I, "Its all over me. It's con
tagh.us, is it not, doctor?"
"Very contagious, indeed," he replied,
'and you should see no one."
"My visitor, who had been getting more
and more nervous every moment, now could
stand it no longer, and rising, said:
" 'Well, Mr. Lincoln, I can't stop any
louder. I just called to see how you were,'
aud then he started to hurry out.
" 'Stop a minute; I want to talk to you
about that office. '
" 'Excuse me, Mr. Prtsiden'. You nre
not well this morning, and I won't bother
you,' said he, shoving toward the door.
" 'Never mind, said I; 'don't be in a bur
ry. It's all right, and if you are cniiig to
get the varioloid you will get it now any
how; so you might as well sit down.'
" Thank you, sir, but I'll call again,' he
replied, fairly turning livid and executing a
masterly retreat from the fearful contagion
with which he supposed me to be iiillicttd.
" 'Now, said Uncle Abe," it will be all
over the city in au hour that I have small
pox, and you can contradict the story, but I
want you to promise that you wl.l not re
peat what I have just told you.' "
Wade laughed until ho was weak and
when he could get his bieath sufficiently to
speak he looked at the clock as was his cus
tom, and said:
"Now for a little business and then I will
"Don't an," cried Uncle Abe, and laying
his bead in his hands on the desk in front of
him, he laughed until he shook all over.
Presently raising up his face from between
his hands he wiped his eyes and blew his
nose until the report sounded like the wind
ing of a horn. Alteranother fit of laughter
"Wade, you should have seen him, and
how scared he was. I'll bet that fellow nev
er comes back here while I am President."
As might have been expected, hardly had
Mr. Wade quitted the White House, when
he heard the President had the small-pox
and was very sick. Wade promptly contra
dicted the story, but that night It was tele
graphed all over the country, and many
people will yet remember the story of Mr.
Lincoln's having the varioloid during the
Commenting on the report, Uncle Abe
said to Wade: "Some people said they
could not take my proclamation very well,
but when I get the small-pox, Wade, I shall
then be happy to say I have something cv

"For tho first time in probably twenty

upon us in the stillnss of the night, step

Now let us put a stop to this, let us re

Schell's administration of the offico of Au
ditor General, It Is such a plume iu the
party's cap as tho Republican party has not
once in tho entire history of Its domina
tion In Pennsylvania entitled Itself to wear.
It has been honest as the day Is long,
and efficient, as the lullest appreciation of
its importance and the most intelligent
nnd scrupulous application of the law could
make it. Mr. Schell entered upon thu du
ties of his office with the intention to en
force the law rigorously and with absolute
Impartiality, and to do no thing nnd per
mit tho doing of no thing for which there
was not tho clearest warrant In the law; nnd
to that intention he has lived constantly
and wlthoutan lota of deviation, It will be
remembered that a year or so ago It was
charged against him that he had appointed,
we think It was two of his sons, nt special
attorneys to prosecute claims of the Stato
against delinquent corporation, This nct,lt
was s.iid,vas au act ofinexcusable nepotism,
The fact that the annual report of the De
partment just emitted shows that these two
SchelN, jr., and thirteen others similarly
employed, (not by General Schell as alleged
but by the Board of Public works which iu-
eludes the Governor, the Auditor General
and btato Treasurer, havo collected nearly
half a million dollars nf tax that were due
and unpaid Dec. 1st 1878, and much of it
due and unpaid years before that, justified
the remark made at the time by some friend
that it was a pity he had no more sons of the
same soil for thai, kind of service.
The business of the Auditor General's de
partment is to-day in better shape than it
has been iu any previous time- in the Slate's
history. Old and defaced records have
been restored or carefully duplicated. Old
accounts have been gathered iu. Olllcinl'lu-
terpretntious have been given to all debat
able points of the law relative- to the assess
ment and collection of Stato taxes and the
payment and auditing of Stato expenses.
Corporations and indlvidulas who under
previous administrations successfully
shirked tho payment of taxes legally due
by them, have been hunted up and made
to disgorge. Tho facilities for close collec
tions in the hereafter have been greatly
added to. Tho books and records have
been made to show more clearly tho finan
cial transactions and slatus of the state.
Very many disgraceful and serious Trcas
ury leaks have been effectually stopped up.
The current work has never at any time
been permitted to accumulate, but lias been
industriously prosecuted as it came in to
be done. Much valuable information has
been collected and furnished tho Legisla
ture and been made by it the basis of
fresh and greatly better statutory regula
tions of tho department, its business and
generally of the tax levies and financial
expenditures of tho state. Tho report
just i'sued is the most complete and com
prehensive ever yet put out by tho Auditor
General's Department. In short.the busi
ness has been proptly done, honestly done,
well done, aud wholly done. If, as General
Schell and Treasurer Noyes believe, the
$2,000,000 deficiency in the State Treasury,
the result of criminally extravagant Repub
lican legislation shall be made up in two
years, no small share ol the credit will
be due General Scholl nnd tho efficient and
gentlemanly corps of clerks in his employ.
Edward Herrick, the chief of those subor
dinates, is a candidate for the position Gen
eral Schell will vacate in May 1881. lie
has been a valuable- lieutenant to his chief,
and if nominated and elected, can be de
pended upon for an equally conscientious
performance of his duties, and to still fur
ther improve the efficiency of the Depart
ment as the official supervisor of the receipts
and expenses of tins great state Union
A Portrait Out ufl'liu'e.
At the banquet given to Gen. Grant in the
Uily ol .Mexico I iy American rfMiietilf,
among the decorations of (lie hall was a
portrait of Georire Wa-h ingto-i.
This portrait was entirely ou of place at a
dinner to Gen. Grant. Almost eervheie
in the presence of Ainciican citizens it
would be appropriate. But Graut is the
ouly President we have ever hud whohrs
been found wauling in respect and appreci
ation for thp character of Wa-hinut"ii, He
is tho first and only incumbent of the rflieo
of Chief Magistrate who lias ref'u-ed to fol
low Washington's example and lav i finally
down at the end ol eight years.
It is this high exampln ol ashincton,
followed, as it has been, bv his illustrious
successors, that now stands iu the way of
Grant s selfish and lnssliable ambition. es,
the portrait nf the Father of his Giuntrr
was wholly out ot place. Grant mti-t hate
the sight of those grand, inujentic features
as ho does the example rhich limits the
Presidency to eight years.
It is perhaps the first time the portrait of
Wrs'iiiigton was ever nlaced in a nublie hall
to bo dishonored. A'. 1". Sun.

Judgo Butler in the United States District
Court, in refusing a new trial to Thomas
Clare, recently convicted of violating the
revenue laws, decided that bottlers ol malt
Honor who dispo-e of at one salo a number
of hollies containing iu all over five gallons
of malt liquor must pay annually a special
tax lo t lie aovemment of filly dollar.-, addi
tional to the retail tax nf twenty-six dollars.
This was a test case, raised in order to as
cerliiin the lepnlity of a recent order of the
-internal lteveuue Uouimls-ioner directing
tho collection of the special tax. Judge
Butler, iu dt-liverini: his onii ion. stated
that the defendant had been guilty of no in
tention to evade the law.
