secures the county nominations must

In a speech at Bristol last week
General Beaver said that "Don Cam

man. Ho afterwards explained that
ne meant pnysicauy, ot course.
Attornoy General Brewster has ren
dered an opinion to tho effect that the
political assessments made by Ilubbcll
aro not illegal as Hubboll is not an of
ficer of tho United States. Being a
member of a stalwart administration,
Brewster was compelled to filo a stal
wart opinion.
As announced some timo ago, Judge
Elwell has consented to bo a candidate
for renomination as President Judge of
the 20th district, and his name will
therefore go before the pcoplo of this
county at tho delegate election on
August 5th. There is no other candi
date in tho field.
Tho officers of the delegato election
should bear in mind that tho law re
quires them to be sworn before entering
upon their duties. A failure to com
ply with this law may not only exclude
tho entire vote of a district from tho
convention, but may be punished on
convicton by n fine of two hundred dol
lars. If congress does not soon adjourn its
members will not be able to take an
active part in in their dis
tricts.' Tliis would be a blessing to tho
districts. Gazette & Bulletin.
Yes, a good thing for tho districts, but
as it is a republican congress the longer
they remain In session tho worse it is for
tho country.
It would bo a great blow to tho
Demoeraoy if General Beaver's friends
should succeed in persuading him to
Btoi) talking. The farther he travels
and tho moro ho talks tho greater aro
the chances of Pattison's election.
Tho Democratic state committco could
afford to pay Beaver's traveling ex
penses just to keep him on tho road.
Tho Democratic candidates wero
notified of their nomination on Friday
of hist week, by W. II. Snowden, chair
man of the committee appointed for
that purpose. Tho delay in sending a
formal notice was caused by the mem
bers living in different sections of the
State and tho document was forwarded
from one to tho other for their signa
ture and then returned to tho chairman.
It was signed by William II. Snowden,
Malcom Hay, II. E. Packer, J. A.
Coohran, Hnrman Yerkes, J. M. Thomp
son and Georgo M. Dallas.
Last week by accident, a squib from
tho Philadelphia 1'ress on Sir. Storm
ot Monroe county, found iu way into
our columns without the comments
which wo had intended to follow it.
Its point of complaint against Mr.
Storm was tho common slangy one
mado against ovory publics man who
does not go to extreme lengths in his
views upon taxing imports, namely, ho
was a free trailer. Mr. Storm served
some years sinco iu Congress with much
credit to himself and his district nnd
whenovcr occasion shall require, can
fully vindicato his voles while there.
At present, ho needs no defense against
tho Press or any other Republican
journal, whether of tho Stalwart or
1 1 ill f-breed persuasion.
On Saturday, August th, tho demo
crats of this county will elect delegates
to tho convention to bo held on Tues
day, August 8th, to name candidates
for tho several couuty and district of.
tices to bo filled this fall. It is impor
tant Unit every member of tho party
should attend this election and cast his
ballot for tho candidates ho desires to
have nominated. It is too ofteu the
case that many fail to vote at delegato
election, and after the nominations aro
made, these same men find fault with
tho nomineos. Every voter of intclli.
iron eo lias, or ought to have some pro
fereuco among the candidates, and it is
his duty to himself and his party to jjjo
iu iiiu iiiiiuui y uiuuuui: unu express ins
choice. In tfiU way only can the con
vention represent tho voico of tho poo
plo. When only n fow voto for dele
gates, it makes tho party merely a ma
chine govorned by a minority.
Another reason why thcro should bo
n full attendance is thnt under tho rules
of tho party, chapter II, rulo IX, where
thcro is a tio vote in convention, made
by instructions, tho candidate who has
received tho highest popular voto shall
1)0 nominated. If woexpect to get out
n full voto at tho general election, wo
must begin to work now, and thero is
nothing that will holp along tho good
cause, by exciting interest iu tho cam
paign, moro than by polling a big
voto on August Alb. It will show that
tho democracy is still alive, and means

Tho success of tho campaign depends
greatly upou tho energy and activity
of tho standing committee. None but
livo men should be placed on the com
mlttee, men who will seo that clubs aro
organizcd,thnt all democratic voters nro
registered, that proper places nro pro
vided for holding public meetings, and
that no democrat remains at home on
election day. To do all this requires
timo nnd labor, but when it is done, tho
result is that our majority increases.
Every voting district shotild select a
member who Is capable and willing to
undcrtako tho labor of tho position, nnd
not be satiHhed with a man who will
take no interest in the matter, and who
acta only as a figure head to fill tho re
quired number of members. It is cer
tain that the democratio nominees of
this county will boelccted oven if thero
wore no standing committee. But the
work thnt is to be dono has an object
bovond the county limits i it is tho
election of the state ticket. With vic
tory more certain than it hns been in
twenty years, this is no timo for trifling.
Notwithstanding the dissensions in
tho ranks of our opponents, tho Demo
cracy must work without ceasing.
But "the standing committee cannot per-
form all that is to bo done. They must
havo tho earnest co-operation nnu assis
tance of every citizen who desires tho

By our county rules of nomin
ation, delegates aro required to
come to Conventions with instruc
tions for count) officers, except Cor
oner and Auditors, touch nro the only
instructions required by the rules, but
other instructions aro allowed and if
given nro to bu carried out and enforc
ed iu Convention. The only limitation
in regard to voluntary instructions is,
that tho majority of the voters of a
district present, aro to participate in
tho proceeding of voting on suoh in
structions. It has been the practice to voto in
structions upon all the principal offices
for which nominations aro mado in
Convention,and slip tickets for the dele-
ate elections aro prepared accordingly,
o tho sheet or slip ticket for tho present
year will contain names lor 1'resident
Judge, Congressman, Senator and Rep
resentatives, in tho same manner as if
they wero county officers.
For all theso offices, except tho last,
thero will bo no contest in the county
(so far as we aro informed); not because
they are not very important ones and
calculated to excite ambition, but be
cause public opinion settled down early
m tavor ot oue particular person tor
each, to be endorsed by tho county.
Mr. MoIIenry having been chosen Sen
ator two years ago to fill a vacancy,
and having served at but one session,
presents a reasonable claim upon the
county to bo recommended by it for re
nomination by the district conference.
Senator Bucknlew has urged no claim
upon tho Congressional nomination, but
will bo prtseuted by this county be
causo the nomination ought to claim
and command him into tho public ser
vice. Such men aro needed at Wash
ington, men who havo had experience
in public business and can be trusted
to do honest public work. Tho nom
ination of President Judge is unopposed,
nnd we must bo permitted to uso tho
languago of another and say, that his
conlinuaiico upon tho Bench will honor
tho district as much as it will honor
him. In advance of tho convention wo
say nothing of contested nominations
to be mado by it, nor will wo anticipate
results in our Congressional and Sena
torial districts; but upon the wholo we
havo reason to anticipate tho ultimate
formation of an able aud honorable
district and county ticket for tho sup
port of the people.
Democratio State Committee
Tho recontly appointed members of
tho democratic state committee, iu re
sponse to a call of W. U. Hensel, the
now chair man, met in tho room of the
Jefferson association, llarrisburg, Tues
day. Chairman Hensel called tho meet
icg to order, and E. P. Kisner, secre
tary of tho old committee, acted as se
cretary. A call of tho roll showed
forty-nino members present, the absen
tees being from Pittsburg aud Alle
gheny. Tho eommitteo then took action
upon the contest of Messrs. Doyle aud
Matthews for representation from the
Second district of Philadelphia. As
each man had received tho voto of three
delegates from his district nt tho stato
convention, tho difficulty was adjusted
by placing each on tho eommitteo with
the privileges ot a halt vote each.
Tho following resolution, offered by
Mr. Burchfield, of Clearfield, was un
animously adopted :
JJWra. Tlmt the secretaries tills iluv
chosen shall bu the olllcers ot this commit

point such secret nrles, stenographers unci
agents ns he may deem proper to iilil him

Mr. Blackford, of York, offered the
following, which was adopted without
a dissenting voice:
lltiolvttl. That tlio Cliiitrmim of the state
committee shall have exclusive charge of
the campaign. Ilemuy nppnlntsuch llimncc

Thrice Branded.
During n discussion in the IIouso of
Representatives on Thursday last,
aecor Robeson referred with a sneer
to tho deafness of W. E. Robinson
Reprcsontatlvo of tho Second District
of New York. Mr. Robinson was
absent from tho House, nt tho timo.
Tho next morning Mr. Robinson rose
to a personal explanation, nnd said :
"I acknowledge, Mr. Spo.iker, thnt
Providence 1ms seen fit to afilct me. not ex.
actly with deafness, hut with hardness of
hearing. 1 know of only one gentleman
more to be puled limn l, nmi unit is a cer

infamy on tho forehead of tho man
against whom it was directed, and
which wns repeated for the third time
within a fow weeks, produced no visi

Political Assessments.
Tho opinion of Attorney General
Brewster on tho subject of political as
scssments is generally treated by the
press as if it wero a judicial decision.
It simply amounts to an interpretation
of tho law bv the cabinet attorney for
the guidance of officers of tho United
States government. It is altogether
ex itarte and does not at all settle the
legal questions involved in tho matter.
Tho conclusions am ved at by tho attor
ney general may be correct, but his
opinion has no binding effect upon any
body. If ho had decided that a mem
ber of congress is nn ofiicer of tho
United States within tho meaning of
the statute ho was called upon to inter
pret, Mr. Ilubbell might stQl have gono
on levying and collecting his assess
ments with perfect impunity. Tho
courts nnd not tho nttorncy general aro
the constitutional and rightful interpre
ters of tho law.
But tho opinion of tho attorney gen
eral, though worthless ns a judicial do
('nation, serves to point a moral. Con
gress, it seems, has prohibited all other
official representatives of tho United
States government oxcept its own mem
bers irom receiving contributions from
federal officials for political purposes.
The attention of congress is now called
by an official paper to this important
omission in tho law. Thero is yet timo
beforo tho adjournment of tho present
session to correct tho matter. A sup
plementary bill should at oncobo passed
to bring members of congress within
the purview of tho act. A measure of
that kind, with no ambiguity or uncer
tainty iu its phraseology, would bo
worth all the opinions of all tho nttor-
noys-general, past, present and to como
Tho republicans of Peunsylvauiashould
seo to it that congress is at once strong
ly petitioned for tho passago of such a
bill. Both tho stalwart and indepen
dent wings of tho party havo pronounc
ed by solemn resolution against politi
cal assessments. They havo mado Hub
bell a political issue' in this stato aud
that issue can best be settled by congress
in tho manner just indicated. Chair
man MoKeo will, of courso favor this
proposition from pure principle nnd in
order to Btnko a blow at the "(iiant-Artliur-Conkling-Guiteau
Cameron Stal
warts. Chairman Cooper will support
it because it would prevent the repub
lican congressional committco from
poaching on his manor and would
enable him to conduct his own black-
tnailing operations with greater success.
In fact it would seem that such a bill
ought not to meet with any opposition
