The Old Ticket of 1876.
AN AIXEUED AUTlIOltATIVK STATEMENT
THAT TILUEN HAS CONSENTED
Minneavous, Minn., October 7,
Tho Tribune to-day publishod a dis
patch from alleged authoritative quar
ters to tho following effect : Dcspito
tho many assertions said to bo made on
authority from Groystono that Tilden
would under no circumstances consent
to bo tho presidential caudidato of tho
Democratio party in 1884, it may safe-
ly bo set down that a desporato effort
will be undo to nominato tho old ticket,
with tho full knowledge and consent
or tlio two gentlemen most directly in
terested. A short tirao ago Hendricks
inado a quiet visit to Tilden and ef
fected an adjustment of tho misunder
standing which had existed between
them sinco tho campaign of 187G, after
which ho disclosed tho real object of
las visit by trying to miluoo 1 llden to
allow his namo to go before tho Na
tional Convention. After an extended
conversation, in tho course of whioh
many objections ndvanoed by Mr. Ill
den wcro met and satisfactorily an
swered by Ilondricks, Tilden said
'Well, I shouldn't mind it, except for
tho labor of making another caninaiiru."
To which Ilondricks replied, assuriug
Tiluon that the campaign was already
mado and ho had but to speak tho word
to sccuro tho nomination. This seemed
to satisfy Tilden nnd thov parted with
tho full understanding that tho old
ticket would bo put beforo tho people
Shortly after Hendricks' visit John
Kelly mado a journey to Groystono on
tlio samo business, presumably on a
hint dropped by Huudricks. IColly as
aurctl Tilden that ho had buried the
hatchet and was anxious to sco tho old
ticket ronomlnated. Ho said that ho
would work hard and faithfully to ao
complish that end and also to scouro
their election. It is intimated that
Ilondricks la actuated by tho fact that
Tilden is an old man and decidedly
feelilo and that ho (Hendricks) woult
havo much of tho woik of the Presi
lential ollico to do and would probably
jeootno President beforo tlio ond of his
term by reason of 1 ilium death or to
tal disability. Kelly wants Tildei
nominated so as to pay off old political
debts nnd his uomtuauou tvould rctiro
Cleveland aud others, for whom he has
a strong dislike.
Where the Responsibility Rests.
Sonio of tho partisan Republican
Hows papers in tho stnto havo taken,
exception to tho following Btntcinent in
tho last message ol the governor to as
sembly ! "On tho part of tho Houso of
n .'..-.! !. 1...., .. 1...
ivupreseiiiaiives u nppuiira mm. h-buiu
lions havo been repeatedly sent to tho
Scnato rcnucslintr tho nppolntmont of
committees of conference to adjust tho
differences existing between tlio two
houses, which requests the Scnato has
refused to grant. Moreover, tho House
appears to havo passed a number of
now bills, pending tho unreconciled dif
fcrences upon tho old ones, nil of which
now measures tho Scnato hns refused to
placo upon its calendar. From this it
would appear that ono branch of tho
legislature is unwilling to mako nny
further efforts to meet the other for tho
purpose of reconciling tho differences
existing between them nnd passing tho
legislation required by tho Constitu
tion." Hut sinco then it lias becomo moro
and moro manifest that tho judgment
of tho conservative people of tho state,
regardless of party, Is strictly in nccor
danco with this viow of tho matter.
That eminently judicious nnd moderate
newspaper tho Philadelphia 1'ublic
Ledger, Avhicli never takes a partisan
view of any matter, has this to say in a
recent issue :
This subject of apportionment goes
down to tho very foundation of just re
presentation according to proportionate
numbers to tho fundamental principal
upon which American representative
government is built. To compel a con-
unuanco oi mo existing iiLuiuriiuiiiuuiii.
is a violation of tho republican princi
ple of representation in proportion to
numbers as well as a defiant refusal to
obey tho constitution. Whatever tho
existing apportionment bill may have
uecn wnen cnnciou tauu u was never
fair in ono sense), it is grossly unequal
in a party sense, but a just apportion
ment, according to population. As an
illustration of our meaning wo refer to
ono district, tho Twenty-fourth repro
sentativo district of Philadelpliia.
Under the present law it nan ono re
presentative ; by tho growth of its pop
ulation it is entitled to threo on tho ex
isting basis. Such growths and shift
ing of population aro to bo found else
wheio in tho city and throughout tho
state, wherever there is a district that
has been specially attractive to popu
lation sinco tho census of 1870. The
disproportion is getting greater in some
places, even sinco tho census of 1880,
only threo years ago. Tho scandalous
and crying injustico is, by neglect or
refusal to obey the constitution to com
pel the population under the census of
1880 to ncccpt representation according
to tho census of 1870.
That there is danger of so gross an
injustice, so bold a violation ol tlio
foundation principlo of representative
government ; so flagrant a dcfianco of
tho stato constitution, is an offence
shared by tho controlling majorities
in both Houses of tlio legislature in
varying degree at tho regular session,
but for which the heavy responsibility
is on the Scnato majority at this session.
About two mouths ago the majority in
tho Senate gavo tho majority in
tho House to understand that they
must accept tho apportionments tho
Scnato expressed a willingness to con
cede, or get no new apportionment at
all. This is what is frequently referred
to as tlio "ultimatum ' tlio language ot
a sovereign power at war or seeking a
pretext for war. Tho course of tho
majority of the Senate has been stead
ily pursued on that line ever since, nnd
on last Thursday week it wa followed
by a resolution to meet thereafter but
twice a week. Threo such semi-wcek-ly
meetings have been held since as
sembling on tho appointed Thursday
or Friday, doing nothing, and adjourn
ing. Tho meeting appointed for to
day is tho fourth j that for next Friday
will bo the fifth, and it should be tho
last of that sort.
This is the attitudo of tho Senate.
It has been called "revolutionary," and
strong as that word is, it is tho right
word. Revolution does not always re
quiro force of arms. Government can
bo overthrown or paralyzed in other
ways tuan by cannon, rifles aud bayo
nets ; and refusal to obey the organic
law is ono of them. If any ono com
mand of tho constitution can bo diso
beyed with impunity, another and
another can any and all that a contu
macious branch of tho government sees
fit to disregard. This is the Berious
nnd threatening sido of their affairs at
Harrisburg, which the people will havo
The Treasury Eing.
THE INDEPENDENTS DECLARE AOAINST
THE J Olll! F.ItS.
It is evident that tho Independents
will uot Jail into the line in behalt ot
tho old Treasury Ring. Tho following
trom a recent issiio ot tho Delaware
county llecord, a Republican newspa
per, of ability and wide circulation,
published in chairman Coopers own
county tells tlio story :
"rho Humes net was passed at the
regular session ot llie legislature, and

quired to pay tho interest on tho pub
ho debt ; tlio commissioners then being
authorized to purchase Stato or Feder
al bonds, nt their discretion, said inter
est to accrue to the benefit ot the State
Treasury, Tho tenth section of tho
act ot Alay a, 1871 provides that when

Treasurer from sources of general ro
venuo apart from amounts payable to
tuo bmking 1' unit snail exceed 55UU,
000, such sum shall bu carried to tho
account of tho Sinking Fund.
"Tho report of Stato Treasurer Ilaily
shows that on August 31, 1883, cxclu
sivo of moneys appropriated to tho
Sinking Fund, 82,018,808.12 was dis
tributcd among twenty banks through
out tho Stato ; and further that no part
of tho surplus over tho contingent fund
of 500,000 was carried to tlio account
of tho Sinking v und, but this surplus.

tchicfi this surplus ought to contribute

"Nor is thia all. Tho last quarterly
report also shows that tho sum of $'.,
709.090.01, belonging to tho Sinking
Fund, was distributed among ,'i7 banks
in tlio htate, tuns aggregating the enor

ropositiou that this largo surplus should

isions ot tho Humes act. Jiotli .Messrs
Lemon nnd Bally opposed tho offer,
Mr. Hailv assigning as a reason for his
opposition that to withdraw these de
posits lrom somo ol tlio county banks
ould cnuso scmistagnntion, it not n
financial panic, thus virtually confes-
mg that these deposits were interest
bearing, ami as sucfi, could not be
withdrawn without due notice. Where
and to whom this interest goos no man

ono tiling is certain, the State docs not

of 1 per cent per annum upon $1,788,
858, tho interest alono would amount
to $191,552 t a sum certainly largo
enough to constitute an inferenco for
tlio reasons of opposition to tho appli
cation of tho provisions of tho Humes
act. This is n plain statement of tlio
present status of tho Treasury depart
ment, and certainly furnishes to the
nverago Pennsylvania tax-payer suffi
cient of issuo upon which to baso Ins
udgmcnt and cast his ballot. The
jobbers who opposed tho enactment of
tho Humes net aro well known ; their
opposition is spread upon tho official
records of tho State, and thoso samo
jobbers, failing in their efforts to do-
teat the Humes bill, aro now shame
lessly and unscrupulously endeavoring
to thwart aud circumvent tho provis
ions of this most wiso nnd beneficent
measuro. This, then, wo repeat is tiio

How Watch Cases aro Made.
Most persons hare an ambition to carry
b gold watch case, and yet few people know
how a watch caso is made, or tho vast dll.
ferenco Inthoqualityof them. In a Solid
Gold Watch Case, asldo from tho ncces
6a ry thickness for engraving aud polishing,
a largo prujiortion of tho metal Is needed
only to btlflen and hold tho engraved por
tions in place, and supply strength. Tlio
surplus is not only needless, but undesira
ble, because gold is a soft metal and cannot
furnish thobtluiicss, strength und elasticity
necessary to make the catu permanently
strong nnd close-fitting. Tlio perfect watch
caso must combino gold with somo metal
that will supply that in which the gold is
deficient. This has tiecn accomplished by
IhoJamtiJiou'GM Watch ChHtst w
which save tho waste ofnu".' O
