ELECTION, TUESDAY NOVUMUEIt Olh.
Most of tlio members of tlio Stand

duties faithfully and well. All that
remains for them to do now is to give
ono tnoro day to their country and sec
that every Dcmocratio voter attends
tho polls next Tuesday. Get out the
This is tlio year for Democrats to
voto tho Democratic ticket. Every
voto now counts for 1881. Encou
ragemont to tho Republicans in any
quarter, whether they aro running for
municipal or stato oflices, means just
so much moro hard work and uncer
tainty next year. Turn them out as
you go along.
Tho Bellefonto Watchman, Chief
Clerk Mcek's paper, says : "Keep it
before tho people that Mri Nilcs, as
soon as ho received tho nomination for
auditor general from tho Republican
State Convention, deserted his post at

ary action of tho Republican State
senato in refusing to oboy tho plain
mandate of the constitution that -an
apportionment of tho Stato shall bo
mado after every decennial census.
This refusal has cost the Stato 100,000.
A Democrat who fails to vote, en
dorses this outrageous and useless ex
penditure just as much as tho Repub
lican who votes. Stand by your Gov
ernor and your party representatives,
and help to put tho seal of condemna
tion on tho ultimatumists.
Tho ancestors of Joseph Powell,
Democratic candidate for Stato Treas
urer, camo to this country a century
ago. Mr. Powell was. born in Bradford
county and has always lived there.
William Livsey, Republican candi
date for Stato Treasurer, was born in
England, and has been a citizen of this"
Stato for only a fow years.
Last year . tho Republican press
urged as a reason why Pattison should
not bo elected, that ho was born in
Maryland. If thero was any justice
in this claim then, tho fact that Livsey
was born in England is a good reason
why ho should bo defeated this year.
As predicated by tho Intelligencer
ex-Govornor Iloyt did not speak at the
Republican meeting in his old home,
Wilkesbarrc, on Saturday evening. It
is true that ho was confined to his room
in Philadelphia and was unable to go,
but ho never had any intention of going
nor of making any such speech as ho
was billed for. Chairman Cooper
knew that ho would not bo there, but
held out tho promiso of his presenco as
an attraction to secure an audience for
himself. Ex-Governor Hoyt sent no
letter or regrets for his inability to bo
present, nor of sympathy with tho
cau'so that Cooper advocates. His
friend, Gen. McCartney, mado no sign j
his political associato and confidante,
ex-attorney uoncrai ueo. ijQax, aia not
go, tnougn inviteu. Tlio attempt to
make it atmcar that tho Tm1nnriiflnnta
aro reconciled and all tho Republicans
harmonious is a dismal failure. Wolfe
wants Livsey beaten ; Levi Burd Duff,
the candidate for lieutenant
-on tho Stewart ticket last year, is now
out spoKemy lor tho uemocratio ticket ;
vjui. ?t m. iuuiMiuiuiui, iiuu imiepcu
dent candidate for congressman-at-large,
has nothing to say for tho regu
lar Republican nominees. After in
dustriously drumming through tho
stato for a week and sending nut Inln.
graphic appeals for authority to nppend
namesjto the Leo address, Wharton
Barker succeeded in getting only about
a half score of names appended to it.
j.no Jiepuuiican party must go. M.an

When the polls closo and tho votes aro
counted, tho effectiveness of tho work

win ue kuowii. i nis uas necessarily
been a quiet canvas. There havo been
no brass bands, no torch light proces
sions and no stump speeches for tlio
mimosa ot firiiinr tho heart nf tlin vntor.
But because there has been no publio
demonstrations in this county, our
peoplo should not feel indifferent. It
noes not rcquiro a brass band and a
spread eaglo oration to incito a true
Democrat to do his duty, and there
foro overy momber of tho party, old
and young, is expected to go out next
Tuesday and cast his ballot against
the Republican ring that has ruled
Pennsylvania for many years.
Chairman Ilensol says wo can carry
tho Stato if wo got out tho voto. Last
year's olection proved that thero aro
enough Democrats in tho Stato to
carry it this year if they will all vote.
Tlio great secret of Republican buo
ccss for ho many years Is that they
always vote, while Democrats aro too
much inclined to feel indifferent, and
not put thcmsolves to any trouble to
get to tlio polls.
Columbia county is oxpectcd to give
a majority of at least 2,300 for Tap;
gart and Powell. Sho can do it
easily with a fair voto j sho can do
better than that with afull voto.
Then let overy Democrat got out on
Tuesday and help to mako a solid
Dcmocratio administration in this
commonwealth. It will bo a granfl
victory, and will put Pennsylvania in
tho Dcmocratio column for tho Presi
dential election next year. . Get out

nearly every measure that was intro

A snocial "disnatch to thn J'ntrint
from Washington, dated October 30th
Tho republicans hero aro distracted
over a now element of dissatisfaction
in tho party in Pennsylvania. The
complaint is against tho management
of Chairman Cooper. It has been dis
closed that Senator John Stowart, late
independent candidato for governor
is an aspirant for United States senator
to succeed Cameron. This is distaste
ful to the stalwarts who attribute all
their recent troubles in the Keystono
stato to the treachery of Stowart. Coop
er, as alleged, has been toadying to
Stowart and if ho has not actually
promised him aid and comfort in Ins
ambition, has at least prompted it by
:..! i.:... i -i... .i . , i .
giving mm mm uiu inner inuepenaeniB
undue prominence- in tho canvas as well
as on tho floor of tho stato senate.
These things, it is said, aro ranidlv
alienating tho stalwarts in tho stato
from tho support of tho ticket. Tliov
reason that Cameron being abroad do-
lcat coum not bo justly charged to bun
wncrcas bucii a result would naturally
aid him in future political manaceinont.
His friends could plausibly assert that
the disaster proved tho necessity of tho
senator's personal efforts to securo suc
cess. An invitation to rcsumo tho
leadership on his return would natural
ly follow, and that would Involve tho
acceptance of him as the
candidato of tho party to bo his
uwu buccuhsur, -iii- inbi una measure
was received with alarm ami discour
aged as too desperate a remedy for
tlio evils complained of. But Cooper
failed to listen to tho quiet admonitions
sent to him on tho subject of his flirta
tion with Stowart, and it was finally
determined that tho lieroio reniody was
tho only courso left. Mithone, who is
tho political oracle hero, now recom
mends this course, and a quiet but well
considered movement looking to this
result has been inaugurated.

The following extracts from Gover
nor Hoyt's letter of November 3, last
year, will be read with interest in view
ot the fact that the same condition of
affairs in tho Republican party, which
me governor so uiiiony assailed, pre
vails at tho present time. It is a man
ly and indignant protest against tho
methods of a party whioli required from
its followers tho most ablcct survlhtv

Dosses, and tlio governor In his letter
clearly proves that no citizen, if iudo
pendent, could long remain in their
company, without absoluto forfeiture
ot ins titlo ns a scli-respectlng man.
Tho withering indictment of Hoyt is
equally applicable at the present tiino
when a corrupt treasury ring is strug

Nokwai.k, Oct. 29. Following aro
the particulars of a mystery which pro
mises to become as prominent as somo
of tho other strango crimes whioli havo

was fixed in the blaok mud of tho
water's edge, rising and falling with
the movement of tho tide, and was in
a shocking condition. Blood smeared
over tho hands and faco and not 'yet
washed away by tho water, pointed to
a crimo. Over the right oyo was a
deep gash and on tho head in two or
threo different places wcro large bumps,
resulting, probably, from heavy blows
iullicterby some blunt weapon. Near
the Sentro of tho forehead was u deep
indentation. Here had fallen a blow,
it seemed, whioli had resulted in the
fracture of tho skull. Tho body wns
ascertained to be that of Mrs. Julia
