MORTIMEK F. ELLIOT.
IMI.MOCIIATIC CAXlllllATK l'OK CON'OKKSS
Hon. Mortimer F. Elliot is n tlescen-
dant of 0110 of tlm pioneer anil staunch
Ufinocrntio tnimlics 01 Tiosa eountv.
Ho is the only son of Colonel Nathan
iul A. Elliot, wlio was elcctetl by the
Democrats a member of the Hoiiee of
Kepiou'iitalivesi of I'eiinsvlvania and
nerved with credit in the vear 1818.
Mortimer was born in the township of
Charleston, in the village of Cherry-
Plats, JioKa county, la., bcptemlicr1
21th, 1842, and is therefore in tho fur-'
tieth year of his age. He was raised
upon a farm and educated in the com
mon schools of his native township and
at Alfred University, Alfred, Alleghe
ny ceunty, N. Y. The work upon the
farm, the pure mountain air, coupled
with good habits, gave him a strong
and sturdy constitution, a clear head
and vigorous mind. He studied law
with Hon. Stephen V. Wilson, and was1
admitted to practice at the Tioga coun
ty bar in the year 18G1.
At that time tho bar ot iioua coun
ty was distinguished for its able prac
titioners, among whom were Hon. Hen
ry Sherwood, Hon. H. V. Williams,,
Hon. Stephen 1. Wilson, Hon. John
W. Guernsey, Hon. 15. 15. Strang, Hon.
I. E. Smith, Hon. 0. H. Seymour, and
it would seem that there was no loom
for a young lawyer,or 110 lucrative prac
tice at his command. He however
opened an oflico nt Wellsbom, facing
the public square, among these distin
guished men, and began the p'"ictiee
of his chosen profession. His clients
were lew at Inst, but they lncieasetl
rapidly as his course and manner of
trying suits became known. His
knowledge of law, his close application
to business entrusted to hint and his
power as an ndvocato before a jury,
won tho conlidt'iico of tho people and
gave hint a high standing at the bar,
antl 111 tho year 1870 he was tho JJem
ocrotio candidate for president judge
of the 4th judicial district, composed
of the counties of Tioga, Potter, Mc-
Kean and Cameron, and although tho
district was largely Republican, ho
came near to gaining an election, re
ducing the majority several thousand
In 1873 ho was elected to tho Con
stitutional Convention and served with
distinction, being tho choico of the
young and progressive Democracy of
his district. Amid the pressing carts
of a large and sxtensivo practice al the
several courts in Northern Pennsylva
nia, tho Supremo Court of the State,
and tho United States District and Cir
cuit Courts, he has always cheerfully
espoutied to the call ot Die public cith
er 111 Northern Peiinsvlvniiia or South-
ern New York, and has done yeoman
and distinguished servico upon the
At a great mass meeting ol the lA'in-
ocraey at Ehnira, when Gen. MeClellau
was present, Elliot was literally carried
upon the shoulders of his auditors,
laving made a speech unexampled lor
argument, logic and eloquence 111 the
history of that campaign. At the great
Hancock meeting at Corning, N, Y
11 Oetobar, 1880, where Col. John W.
Forney, Hon. Darius A. Odeu and
others spoke, Mr. Elliot made the
speech 01 tho occasion, He is the pride
of tho young Democracy, and has been
justly called "The Little Giant of tho
North.'' As a lawyer he is able and
learned, and as an advocate ho has no
superior in tho northern portion of tho
State. Ho is a gentleman highly re
spected by all parties for his sterling
ntegrily, Ins legal and lorcnsio attain
ments, and in his election the peoplu of
tho State at largo may test assured that
they will have a representative honest,
capable and fearless, ono who knows
the right and daie maintain it. Horn,

11 a hopeless Democratic minority, his
dcraooracy is clean cut, hut liberal, pro

Three line Young Men.
A proud man was Mr. Abel Leonard
proud of his houso and everything in
it, proud of his elegant niid accomplish
ed daughter, proud of his long estab
lished business as a merchant.
Abel Leonard has been heard to
boast that ho had in his counting house
the three finest young men in the city.
There was his own ?0n Charley he
was certainlya fine young man", and
his father was moro than a little proud
Then there was Evan Jones, tho head
book-keeper. Certainly Mr. Evan Jones
was a line young man.
Thirdly, "a sort of head clerk and
general manager, who mf.de himself
felt everywhere, and of whom oven his
employer was half inclined to stand in
awe 'there was Walter Sterne, with an
expussion of self-contained firmness
about his full, solid looking lips that
forbade any one denying that Walter
Sterne was a Very fine young man.
Three very fine young men were
these, and undoubtedly Abel Leonard
was justified in being proud of them ;
but the time had come, in tho natural
course of human events, when tho old
gentleman must necessarily bo puz
zled. For forty years ho had no partner in
business, and for half that time ho had
accustomed himself to look upon his
daughter Hello as a girl ; but now two
impoitant facts wero slowly dawning
upon him. One was that ho must
speedily assign tho chargo of his busi
ness to younger and more active man
agement ; and the other was. that two
of his very fine young men were rival
ing each other in well direct efforts to
establish even a nearer connection with
himself than that of partner in business.
Abel Leonard had always pretended
to keep a sharp eyo after his books and
balances ; but of late years this had
been little more than a pretence, until
now that ho seriously contemplated a
change in his arrangement ; he once
more made a practical reality of his
former examinations. No ono but
himself knew this, however, for Abel
Leonard was not a talkative man.
Perhaps the old gentleman was not
as quick at figures as he had oneo been
and there were some accounts that puz
zled him sadly. At all events ho went
over them ngain and again.
Still ho called no ono to his assistance
though, ;m Charley was cashier, Evan
Jones head book-keeper, and it was
Walter Sterne's duty to go over things
after them, ho could very easily have
had everything explained. To be sure
Walter had been absent for two or
three days just before the worst of the
puzzle came. That night Abel
Leonard went homo with a clouded
brow, and a good deal less pride than
usual iu his heavy step.
"Thero can bo no doubt of it 110
doubt of it whatever; there's a deficit
of eight hundred in tho cash account,
mid it was well coveted up too;falso
additions, and what not; but they
could not deceive old Abel. I wonder
low long this thing has becu troinir
And then, in if somebody whispered
to him thero came the thought of Wal
ter Sterne's bank account, so very large
for a young man with his salary and
1 lie next day, Abel Leonard sent
lown woid that ho was ill, and did not
make his appearanco on that or the
day following, so that tho three fine
young men had it all their own way.
Tho second evening Walter Sterne
came up to the house to mako 0110 of
ins iiequent calls, lie was received as
usual, made a good repoit of tho busi
ness but hu seemed to have some
thing heavy on his mind.
Alter the talk with tho old L'entlo-
man, thero followed a very interestinir
call in tho parlor, and never beforo had
Hello Leonard Btctned bo subdued 111
her manner or sosweetlv eiigaiiiiL'. To
such an extent did her manner and tho
half pleading expression of her face
work upon tho already pretty well
formed determination of her young
friend, that tho recivt, which for a loinr
tiiuo hud been only half a secret, forced
its t ay to its lips 111 a rush ot earnest
mil eloquent avowal.
Hello bowed her face upon her hands
for a moment, and then raised it. pale
as a marble, but as firm.
".Mr. bterno must irivo tiiuo for con
sideration. If ho will call again to
morrow evening I will give him his an
Walter's fellow clerk was destined to
receive a very similiar reply to a very
similar question, only that Evan was
put on somewhat indefinitely.
Still later that same evening, two
very tine young men wero walking
down Hegent street, when ono said to
"Evan, 1 can't go to tho old gentle,
man for moro money just now have
you any 10 spare T
'Not a penny. You know how uic

"Can't you raiao some!'
"Don't think I can. You know l'vo

"Yes; but that will bo all right when
jou marry Hello."
".est you must help 1110 thon repli
"Why don't you propose!"
"I tlltl Hint very thing this evening,"
"You don't say bo I Whntluek !"
"Good, I should think ; only alio has
put 1110 on n wcck, ' ndded ISvan.
"Oh, that s nothing. You couldn't
have ojtpectcd an answer offhand.
"Not from so proud a girl as Hello
Leonard. Still, you can help mo."
"twill. JJont bo afraid) Im not
anxious for Waller Sterno ni
brother in-law, I assure von.''
"Iln, ha I don't you worry yourself
And so they separated ; but the next
morning, no sooner did Evan Jones
reach tho warehouse 1 than Walter nail
ed him aside for a privato consultation.
hatever was its nature, even the
countenance of Walter Sterno was un
able to conceal an expiession af aston
ishment and consternation,
"Hut why did you not tell mo nt
once 7 no asked.
"I now your cast iron ways," replied
Hvan, 'and I was afraid vou would tell
the old gentleman, and that wouldn't
tlo, you know.
Walter Sterno was unusually busy
with tho accounts that day, and in tho
afternoon late, Abel Leonard came
down in his carriage. Ho tumbled the
books over, as usual but had littlo to
say, and he really looked ill when ho
started for home.
Tho ride was not a lone one. but it
seemed to have shaken all tho pride out
of the fat littlo merchant. As ho
entered the hull ho was met by Hello.
"Tho very worst, Helle!"
"How do you meant"
"The additions and entries aro cor
rected, and the cash is all straight
"Hut how is that tho worst V
"The corrections aro all in Walter
Stern's own hand. He lias been alarm

"Oh father, isn't it terrible 1"
"Indeed it is, Helle. And I loved
that young man almost like a Bon. I'd

And to tell tho truth, both father
and daughter were thoroughly miser
able. Hello especially looked forward
with a nervous honor to tho fast ap
proaching hour for Walter's call.
At last the expected feet were on
the doorstep, and never had ho looked
so near the beau ideal of a "fine young
man" in eyes that already swollen with
tears, looked out at him, through the
curtains. There was oven a look of
prido and elation on Walter's fneo as
ho entered the parlor, but his countc
nance fell as ho cast his on tho face
that came forward to meot him.
"Miss Leonard "
"Mr. Sterne "
And for a few minutes neither of
them could say more, and Walter's
heart beat almost audibly. Their joint
embarrassment was changed in its na
ture by the entry of Abel Leonard
"Walter Sterno I will save Hello tho
trouble of giving you her answer.
Does not your own conscience tell you
what it ought to bo?"
"My conscience 1 1 cannot compre
hend you !"
"Then I will say that I have ex
amined tho book's. Yes, you may
well turn pale, for I saw them beforo
you mado the corrections. I may also
add that I have extorted an unwilling
confession from Mr. Jones not that
ho has dono wrong in anything but
his desire to shield you. It will not bo
necessary for you to come to the counting-house
to morrow Mr. Walter
While tho old gentleman had been
speaking, Walter had been thinking
with lightning speed, and ho now re
plied, in a deep and firm, though
husky voice :
'Mr. Leonard, I seo now into what a
snaro I havo fallen, but I see also that
I cannot at oneo lift myself out of it.
I will only say now, that I have been
utterly honest with you, and moro
than honest. Thero is not one stain
on my conduct."
And so saying, Walter stiodo out of
tho room, and out of the house, leaving
ticeper impression behind than lie
was aware ot. As for Helle she throw
herself upon a sofa in the back pailor,
ami an out souueti nerselt to sleep.
Perhaps an hour, perhaps more,
passed by, when Hello was awakend
by manly voices, conversing near her
n low tones, 111 tho darkness.
"No you can't Charley; that was
tho very money I let you have. I told
him that you helped yourself to it, and
ho made it good to straighten tho
books and clear you. It was only by
bad luck that tho old gentleman found
it out, and its too lato to help it. IIo'll
forgive Walter in a day or so. Then,
you know, it settles tho other thing."
Thus far Charles had said very lit
tho that Hello could hear, but now his
voice was raised a little.
'Evan Jones, I never did a mean
thing in my life. Do vou think I'll
shield myself, or you cither, at the ox-
penso ot a man that would do so gen
erous a thing as that ? No, not bv "
f "Hurrah for you, Charley f" cried
his sister Helle, as alio sprang "from the
sofa and threw her arms around his
neck very narrowly missing tho mis
tako of hugging the wrong man. "I
