Several candidates for Congress and

Tho estimates of government expenses

The Towanda Journal remarks with
conviction, "It is evident that powerful
influences are at work to shield the Star

they so richly deserve." Couldn't tho
Journal go a step further and tell us
just what those "powerful influences"
Tho great Logan has been heard from

Grant Ho introduced a bill in tho Sen
ate to place Gen. Grant upon tho retired
list of the Army, with tho rank and pay
of a General. That bill cannot be killed
too soon. The national pauper has had
about all he deserves.
It's a little rough on Chairman Cooper
that his claims for the gubernatorial
nomination aro not recognized at head
quarters. The festive Quay overlooked
him and pronounced for Grow, and now
Cameron has decided upon Beaver. Of
a tru'.h Republicans are ungrateful.
Cooper's turn to laugh will come after
next Fall's election.
The opinion of those who best know
Mr. Keiferis, that he will be the weakest
and worst Speaker the House has ever
had. Ho is a thorough-paced partisan, is
ignorantof parliamentary rules,undecided
in las views upon all the great questions
of the hour and is neither brilliant
nor deep. He's a Stalwart though, as far
as he can grasp the meaning of the term.

The permanent executive committee
of the Bi-Centcnnial association has re
quested Hayor King, of Philadelphia, to
nave tne state House bell rung two nun
dred times on the night of December 131,
1881, iu commemoration of the opening
of tho bi-centennial year. Tho churches
ot tlio city ana State aro requested to
have their bells runs on the same evening
and the clergyman of all denominations
are asked to make appropriate relereuce
to tho bi-centennial of tho State in their
sermons on Sunday, January 1st, 1882.
At a stated meeting of tho Numismatic
and Antiquarian Society, in Philadelphia,
tho venerable Ell K. Price, the Presidout,
was in the chair. The President's grand
son, Eli K. Price, Jr., a new member,
was presented and took his scat. It was
a noticeable incident in the history of
tho society that the new member made
the third generation of the same family
members and present at tlio same meeting
a fact not paralleled in the annals ot
any other learned body m the world.
Occasionally we find a reliable Kcimb
lican journal with backbone enough to
tell the truth about the present adminis
tration. The Philadelphia Ttleyraph is
one of these outspoken papers and has
this to sav: "The President is in eviii
pathy with tho repudiation of a State's
debt, and he is the political aider and
supporter, with all tho Federal power at
ma uiiuB, ui .immune, tnu uuuei ui igauier,
and barterer of his vote in the Senate;

seem as if tho present Administration
had fallen into strange company.
Rev. J. Hyatt Smith was elected Con
gresaman from Brooklyn by the labor e
cinent and, very naturally, his constitu
cuts thought he ought to keep out of
caucuses ot the other parties. He didn t
though, but took part in the Republican
caucus, much to the disgust of tho
Brooklyn Labor Ulub who sent him a
despatch in tho following words: "Your
iiiiuuious uciiuu in entering me Mention
can caucus has aroused great indigna
tion hero If you support caucus nomi
iiees on the floor your political career is
ended." Tho roverend politician will
not heed this warning as ho has undoubt
odly learned on which side his bread is
buttered. UomMinitics that elect po
litical preachers to represent them do
servo no sympathy, as such representa
tives never turn out well. Politics and
piety do not amalgamate.
Pennsylvania is a happy common
wealth, A correspondent, not an inmate

How reltcioiisly void of interest and im
portance must be the politics of a com
monwealth in which such consequences
can bo provoked by such a cause! No
doubt "General James A. Beaver, of
Bellefonte, Centre county," is a most es
timablu man. But how many Pennsyl.

Benjamin Hauis Browster of Philadel
phia has been nominated and confirmed
us Attorney General of tho Utillotl States.
He is a lawyer of undoubted ability and
an honorabfo man. Ho has been leading
attorney hi the prosecution of the Star
route thieves, and his appointment is
thought to indicate a determination on
the part of the President to push tho
trials vigorously. Mr. Browstcr certainly
has the legal qualifications for his high
position, mid, if the conviction of the
Star routo robbers is on the slate, will
doubtless mako n lasting reputation for
himself ns a prosecutor of public thieves.
Ouo of tho jurors in the trial of David
Mouat for violation of tho election laws,
in Philadelphia, was found to be serving
under an assumed name, lie was arrest
ed and held to answer for contempt of
court and such other charges as the dis
trict attornoy may prefer against him.
The remainder of the jury were dis
charged and the caso will have to be re
tried. It is a difficult matter to convict
one of the ballot bov stuffers and the
principal reason is, that there is so much
tampering with jurors. In the Times

At tho late election in New York W.
W. Astor, the millionaire, was a candi
date for Congress in tho strong Repub
lican district formerly represented by
Levi P. Morton. Astor spent largo sums
of money to secure his election but was
hopelessly defeated by Mr. R. P. Flower,
a Democrat. When the successful can
didate went to Washington ho learned
that ho was entitled to the salary from
the timii of Mr. Morton's resignation.
This sum, amounting to $!",01i.G.", Mr.
Ilowcr has sent to Rev. Dr. Morgan of
St. Thomas' Church, New A'ork, whom
he appoints chairman to distribute the
money among deserving charities of tho
district. This is a most creditable act and

Two of President Arthur's recent
nominations are so dissimilar in character
as to call for comment. For Justice of
the Suprcxio Court of the United States
tho President has named Hon. Horace
Gray, now Chief Justice of tho Supreme
Court of Mnssachuctls. He is a ripe
jurist and a man of unblemished reputa
tion. The appointment is nn exeollent
ono and reflects credit upon the Presi
dent. The same cannot bo Baid for the
nominee for post-mastcr-general. This
is Timothy O. IIowo of Wisconsin, ex-
Senator from that State. Ho is a Grant
worshipper and a thick-and-thin partisan.
He was not a shining light in tho Senate
and will not mako a respectable Cabinet
officer. The appointment of Judge
Gray to tlio Supreme bench is doubly
acceptable because it prevents uoutweii s
promotion to that Court a consumma
tion devoutly to bo grateful for.

In th Senate last Friday, tho only
business of interest transacted was the
discussion of Mr. Hoar's resolution for a
special committeo of seven on the rights
of women. Mr. Vest made an amusing
speech in opposition. In the House a
bill was introduced appropriating soO.-
000 for tho relief of Mrs. Garfield. Mr.
Kelly asked for a woman-sufTrago com
mittee. Mr. Shallenberger had a bill to
prevent persons living in bigamy from
holding any oll'tco of trust or emolument
in the territories of the United States.
The call of States was not finished, but
8G7 more bills were introduced, making
1,G21 iu all. It was agreed to tako a
recess from December 21 to January ."5.
On Monday the Senate confirmed the
nominations of Benjamin II. Brewster
as Attorney General and J. C. Bancroft
Davis as Assistant Secretary of State. Tlio
question of presidential succession was
discussed and tho House resolution rela
tive to a recess was agreed to. In tho
House, a number of bills were presented,
one of which was for tho protection of
tho person of President, providing pun
ishment by death for an assault with in
tent to kill that ollicial.
The Senate only was in session 011
Tuesday. Mr. I lay an reported from
tho coinmitteeo on finance a bill to re
leaso the Philadelphia and Reading R.
R. from payment of certain taxes. Tho
woman sullrage bill was again debated.
In tho House on Wednesday resolu
tions were adopted for a meeting of the
two houses to listen to a memorial ad
dress by James G. Blaine on the life and
character of the lato President. Tho

A plaster cast has been made of Gui

his son, Theodore Mills. After some hes

quickly and skillfully performed.

The prisoner was very unruly and insult

A HAD APPOINTMENT.
The New York Sun does not tako
kindly to the appointment of J. C.
Bancroft Davis to the oflico of Assistant
Secretary of State, and insists that he is
unfit for any high official position. Tho
story of one dishonorable act as told by
the bun is as follows:
"While a director of the Erie Railroad
Company and its retained legal adviser,
ho took sixty thousand dollars from tlio
noston, Jlarttord and J'.ne Kailroad
Company to draw up certain contracts
between tlio two corporations and assist
in carrying them through. This trans
action resulted in an enormous loss to
tho company of which he was director
and legal adviser.
I his payment lor these purposes has
been proved by uncontradicted testi
mony under oath before a legislative
committee in Massachusetts. The ac
ceptance of such a fee implies an utter
disregard of those obligations of moral
ity which constrain honorable men in
the execution of a trust."
It would certainly seem improper to
appoint a person who could bo guilty of
such bad faith and treachery to an impor
tant federal office. Reputation and fit
ness do not, however, constitute very
strong claims for political favors under
