FRIDAY, DECEMHER 21, 1883.
Tho Republican National convention
will bo hold in Chicago Juno 3rd.
Here is Bomothing for our Republi
can friondA to put in their pipes ami
Binokot tlioir leisure : "It la well nnd
truly sald by a prominent journalist
that thcru is a singular incongruity l
twecn tho condition of tho country and
tho condition of tho United States traas
ury. Tho columns of tho daily journals
aro filled with accounts Of businojs
failures, strikes, suspensions of manu
facturing operations and oppression in
prices, at tho eamo timo that Uncle
Sam's pockets aro so crowded with
supcrllu m :ih that he Is obliged to
rohove by calling in tho 3 per cent,
bond which there is no necessity for
jnylng. It is apparent that the pinch
in tho pockets of tho people is aggra
vated by tho plethor.i in tho vaults of
tho treasury. This condition of affairs
is not begotten of good administra
tion." Governor Pattisou proposes to know
what is dono with the public funds,
lie recently sent the following com
munication to tho Auditor General :
iron. John A. Lemon, Auditor
General, Dear JSir : Please furnish
tho oxecutivo department at your ear
liest convenience with an itemized
statement of tho expenditures of the
contingent fundi of the senato and
houso of representnui ;s at tho late ex
traordinary session oi tho peneral as
sembly, showing the names of tho per
sons to whom the monoys of said funds
have been paid, together with tho
amount paid to each. Also a state
ment containing tho names of all ofli
cers and employes, including tho pages
of tho houso and senate, to whom mon
eys have been paid for services during
tho said session, together with the
amount' paid to each.
Yours very respectfully,
RoniinxE. Pattiso.v, Governor.
Tho American Register published
at Washington, favors tno tariff plank
of tho Ohio Democracy of last year, as
a proper one to be incorporated in tho
Democratic National platform of 1881.
That plank is as follows ;
"We favor a tariff for revenue limit
ed to tho necessities of Government
economically administrated, and so ad
justed in its application as to prevent
unequal burdens, encourago productive
industries at home and afford just com
pensation to labor, but not to create or
The Register says :
On this platform, Ohio, a Ropubli
lican State; was redeemed from the
thraldom of pseudo-Republican misrule.
The Democratic party of Virginia
adopted the same position on tho tariff,
and on this 2'osition, Virginia won a
glorious victory, last fall, against tho
coalition forces of black Republicanism
and Mahouo repudiation.
A Chicago correspondent has learn
ed from sources of the highest auth
rity that Gen. Grant and wife have bo'
recently converted to spiritualism in
its most pronounced form. Tho state
ment comes from two ladies one of
whom has a national reputation for
cnltuie iittiinoifiits and position in
soci'iiv. hiiu tho other is likewise a
lady t i. a prominence, publicly
idenii.. i tho ad voeauy of spirit
ualism, and v. Uo is not only welcome
but the pelted guest in some of the
finest of Gotham's palaces. It is stated
that both Gen. and Mrs. Grant first be
came interested in spiritualism and its
doctrines irom bei' present by invi
tation at seances held in Fifth avenue
and Murray Hill mansions. From being
mere spectators they gradually devo
loped into investigators until they final
ly found themselves in full accord with
followers of the spiritualistic school.
The unquestionable soutee from which
the information comes is also authority
for tho additional statement that only
tha fear of public ridicule prevents tho
general from acknowledging and
championing his new found faith.
Our Congressman, Hon. John 15.

in tho House.

Tho republican press devoted col
umns of double-leaded articles filled
with doublcd-and-t'vistcd arithmetical
falsehoods, to disprove tho statements
inado in these columns during tho ro
cent political canvass concerning tho
saving in tho expenditures of the state
government by a democratic adminis
tration and democratio houo of repre
sentatives. It will be remembered that
tho J'atriot assorted that tho expen
ditures of the state govornmont, includ
ing tho cost of tho special session of
tho legislature, for tho fiscal year end
ing November 30, 1883, would lie con
siderably less than tho expenditures of
stato government in 1881, tho lAst pre
ceding year in which the legislature
was in session. This assertion was
laughed to scorn by tho republican
journals although they were utterly
unablo to disprove it. Hut tho final
and complete triumph of tho J'atriot
in this contention is now at hand Tho
statement of tho Auditor Gener
al's otlice giving the expenditnres of
tho stato government for tho fiscal year
just closed furnishes a complete and
overwhelming vindication of our as
sertion. It proves that tho expendi
tures of tho stato government for tho
fiscal year just ended, including tho
cost of tho special session of tho legis
lature, were less than the expenditures
of the state government for the Jiscal
year ending November 31), 1881.
For tho proofs let us have rooourso
to tho official figures. Tho total ex
penditures of tho stato government
for tho t.vo years in comparison were :
.... $7,184,420 49
... 8,733,877 fit
Less In 18J1 than lnlfWl 11,483,513 87
The reader is referred to tho Audi
tor General's Report for 1881, pago 134,
and tho same document for. 1882, p.igo
150, for tho items which mako up tho
gross sum of tho expenditures for 1881.
In the Auditor General's Report for
1891 tha total expenditures for that
yo.ir are set down as 0,926,810.20,
but it will be lcmembered that tho sal
aries of members of legislature wore
paid only in part during that ye3r, tho
right of tho members to their per diem
for tho fifty days of the session follow
ing the first 100 days having been liti
gated iu tho courts and a final decision
rendered in thoir favor during tho fis
cal year 1882. Henco their salaries
for fifty days, aggregating$197,G10.29,
were not paid until 1882. This amount
of course belongs to tho expenditures
of 1881 and when added to tho total
giVen in tho Auditor General's report
for 1881, as above stated, makes the
real total of the expenditures for that
The total expenditures for 18S3 are
set down in tho statement of tho Audi
tor General just Riven to tho press, at
SG.708.090.22. Hut of thas sum S9G9,
812.50 were paid out in tho purchase
of United States bonds and cannot bo
regarded as "expenditures,'' for tho
purchase of the bonds was simply an
exchange of non-productivo assets for
others producing interest. A. any rate
it cannot bo coiisideied under tho head
of "expenditures'' in making a compa
rison with 1881, for during that year
no United Slates bonds woro purchas
ed. We therefore deduct 3969.812,50
from tho alleged total of expenditures
for 1883, and find tho true total to
bo 5,735,877.02, as above exhibit
ed. Hut there aro also credits or allowan
ces to go to tho ledger for 1831 as fol
Excess or Interest on loans In 1831 over
satno In 1883 263,809 07
Excess of cschea s in 1881 over In 1883. 4,530 4 1
Excess ot moneys paid to cora.uon

Excess of iieiuii nj und gratuities t.-.i .
in 1881 over .83 4,405 61
Total J88S,037 05
Subtracting this total from tho sum
found above as tho decrease iu expen
ditures in 1883 as compared with 1881,
us follows :
Apparent decrease ...
Allowances, as nbovo.
.. fl, 488,543 87
Wohevo 1600,505 B3
Thus 8600,505.83 would remain as
the actual decrease of expenditures in
1883 as compared with 1881. liut
18S3 is to bo credited with tho redemp
tion of loans and tho payment of pre
miums on loans redeemed to the extent
of 105,380.15 in excess of payments
on the same accounts in 1881. This
brings up to 705,891.98 tho actual
decrease in 1883 iu all expenditures of
the government absolutely under the
control of tho legislative and executive
departments as compared with the
same in 1881. The oxpenso of the
special session of tho legislature jusi
ended was about 5j5UO,OUU. .Deduct
this amount from S705.801.98 and
$205,891.98 remains as tho net actual
gain for the people under a democratic
administration of the government dur
ing tho past cloven months. This is
very closo to tho figure at which the
J'atriot estimated tho saving during
tho lato political canvass.
How was this saving effected T Tho
principal items in which retrenchment
was mado are as follows:
Public printing and binding M10.328 40
Public buildings and grounds 9,799 0 '
stationery and supplies 8,891 00
Advertising 0,343 37
Expenses ot tho two houses of tho legis
lature for regular session 77,831 90
Charitable Institutions 219,3-U 69
Penitentiaries, etc 63,530 50
Houso of refuge, Philadelphia., 11,375 CO
Agricultural college... 4),00O 00
Under head ot 'Miscellaneous'' S9,lll 61
There wero other sayings, but thoy
are nearly balanced by items of unavoi
dable increase, such us the payment of
military claims, expenses of Bpecial
The analysis just given however, is
quito sufficient to show that tho great
retrenchment effected was achieved by
careful legislation and economical ad
ministration, Tho vetoes of Governor
Pattisou wero also potential in effect
ing this splendid result. A saving of
nearly a quarter of a million of dollars,
with tho legislature in session eleven
months, makes a record of which the
lemocrats of Pennsylvania may well
bo proud and for which tho taxpayers
of tho commonwealth ought to be duly
The Same Old Dodge.
In every election which has taken
place since tho Republican party has
come into power that party has had
two Issues which it constantly pushed
to tho front. Ouo was tho "bloody
shirt and tho other tho imperilled
"business interests " Upon these two
strings it has been wont to play most
dreadful anil discordant inusio to the
uars of timid people. Tho scare on
"business interests'' was intended to
reach tho cars of tho commercial and
Industrial part of tho people, and the
dreadful outrages at tho South wus
meant tn naralvzo tho benevolent and
philanthropic people of tho country,
svhoso dplieato sensibilities could e-islfv
bo intlamed by skilfully told stories of
dospersto ass.iuns upon mu inoueii
ivo nml harmless colored brothor.
Those familiar schemes aro well known
THE COLUMBIAN AND
to nil the country, nnd ns they woro
thought to contain much food for tho
stumper, nnd abound in fruitful texts
for tho averago editor, thoy have dono
yeoman scrvico in several campaigns.
Hut it has been noticed by observing
people that as poon as tho election was
over tho colored brother found no ono
to molest or mako him afraid, and tho
business concerns of the country gave
no evidences of tho fearful danger
which thoy had escaped. This singu
lar thing has doubtless caused so tno
remark nnd perhaps given riso to tho
suspicion that after nil these pictur
csqiio accounts of Southern troubles
and impending commercial dangers
may have been only tho visions of tho
disordered fancies of Republican states
men, superinduced by dwelling too se
verely upon tho possibility of losing
their patronago mid their offices. Such
a danger to the mind of a Republican
statesman might possibly produco n
disordered fancy nndgivoiiso to tho
most fearful apprehensions. Tho loss
of position and power might possibly
present great uneasiness to the mind of
those profiling by party domination,
and tho most harrowing spectres might
rise to confront them, nnd through
them the country, in tho event of par
ty disaster. But ns no social upheav
als, no commercial disasters have fol
lowed tho narrow escape which the
country has mado upon several recent
occasions when tho Democracy were
very near obtaining tho supremo pow
er, it may bo reasonably inferrod that
perhaps all this racket is but tho do
vico of Republican politicians to save
themselves from danger. At any rate
it is safe to receive all such harrowing
announcements with much allowance,
for these dreadful visitations seem
only to come with tho return of tho
presidential year. Iu a sort of feeble
way this humbuggery is now again !
sought to be tried on. Tho Republi
can editor sees danger to tho negro in
tho defeat of Mahoue in Virginia, and
sees commercial calamities in tho elec
tion of Mr. Carlisle. Of courso tho
old plan won't work so well this time,
because the peoplo aro getting tired of
fleeing from Republican ghosts, but it
Will try tho old dodge tho same. It is
but a sorry attempt to savo a discour
aged party from defeat, but as it is the
best thoy can do perhaps wo ought not
ciiticiso them too severely. It will be
tho last timo thoy will ever uso it, and
let them mako tho best of it. Regis

AND J. B. TUAT11KW.
Tried at JJloomsburg, Dec. 4, 1883.
C11AHOE OK THE COURT.
Gentlemen of the jury. This is a
question between the commonwealth
and tho defendants charged in tho in
dictment with two offenses alleged to
have been committed nt tho same time
forcible entry upon property in the
possession of' James Kinsley and as
sault and battery upon Margaret Kins
ley his wife.
The constitution declares that per
sons shall not bo subject to unreason
able searches, or to seaiches without
warrant that officers shall not go into
dwelling houses and ransack through
them, without authority of law.
If one claiming to own land in pos
session of another turns him out by
force and arms, with a strong hand,
with a multitude, with weapons or
threats, in a word with violence, his of
sence against tho peace is called forci
ble entry ; if ho keeps the possession
thus obtained, preventing the return of
tho former occupant, his offense is for
ciblo entry and detainer. A forcible
entry must bo with menace to life or
limb, or accompanied by some act of
violence or circumstances calculated to
inspire fear. One may make a forcible
entry by breaking open tho door of a
dwelling house, whether any person be
in at tho time or not, or by any act of
outrage upon entering. This is a high
crime punishable with a heavy lino and
with imprisonment. Tho indictment
charges such an entry upon a certain
lot of land (described by metes and
bounds) "by raising tho catob,'' &u.
The commonwealth' testimony as to
the entry is that Woodward, ono of the
defendants, knocked at the door, that
Mrs. Kinsley opened the door far
enough to see who tvas there and for
badu him to corao in, but that Wood
ward pushed past her, went in, and
took a seat ; and it is argued by coun
sel for tho commonwealth that "tho de
fendants thrust themselves in, deter
mined to gain admission at all hazards;
on the other hand, that thero was noth
ing disorderly or unusual about it, tho
lestimony oeing mai wooawam was
bid "come in" by Mrs. Kinsley, Thero
was no breaking of a door : nt most, it
is alleged that Mrs. Kinsley, kuowing
Mr. Woodward was a eonBtablo and
suspecting his errand, resisted his com
ing in. Was there anything like a
threat,-ncythiug to alarm Mrs. Kinsley!
Ono man personally known to her ob
tains .entranoo into tho house. I call
your attention to' the facts as testified
to by Mrs. Kinsley and her daughter
Margaret, on tho ono side, and by Mr.
Woodward on the other, in reference
to the mode of his getting admission :
if you aro satisfied thatthcro was noth
ing calculated to alarm in manner of
ontranco, it could hardly bo called a
forcible entry if thero was, it might
A second count in this indictment
charges the defendants with an assault
and battery upon tho poison of Mrs.
The history of this wholo transaction
appears to bo about this : On tho 14th
of May, 1881, an ngent of tho Singer
Mnnufacturing Company rando nn nr
rnngement with James Kinsley in re
spect to a sewing maohino valued at
tho sum of fifty dollars. A lease was
made, by which Kinsloy agreed to pay
tho sum of three dollars a month on tho
14th day of every month after the date
of this instrument for tho uso nnd hire
of the machine, Thero is nothing
wrong iu leasing a sowing machine
any moro than in leasing any other
item of property ! if tho bargain was
fairly made, the lessor would contiuue
to bo the owner, and, if he agrees that,
when ho has received by way of rent a
certain sum of money, lie will transfer
ttiu title, that is not .an uncouscionablo
agreement i all that tho person who
acquires the possession of the jnoporty
has to do is to pay his rent, and ho be
comes the owner j if he fail to do that,
thou his rights are to bo determined by
tho terms of his agreement that iu
case tno payments aro not mudo as
stipulated, tho company's ngent may'
enter upon too promises and tune away
tho machine Tho contract, whether
leaso or conditional sale, is binding as
between tho parties j but tho company,
in carrying out its provisions, must not
do any act that amounts to a broach of
tho peace. Suppose a tenant has a
lease, that tho term oxplres and he re
mains in possession when ho ought to
leave, and that tho landlord re-entering
sets out his goods i trespass will not lie,

because the tenant had agreed to go
out t bni supposo tho landlord in re
entering uses lorco and violonco amount
ing to a breach of the public pence, ho
is responsible for that not to tho ten
ant, but to tho commonwealth. Tho
Singer Manufacturing Company not
having been paid according to contract,
had the right to go upon any premises
occupied by James Kinsloy, nnd ntnko
their machine j in doing it, did thoy
commit nn assault mid battery t
Mrs. Kinsloy says that after tho
ngent Trathon camo in sho sat upon
tho sewing mnchlue, and (In substance)
forbade its removal, Hint Woodward
took hold of her two hands nnd pulled
her awny, at the same timo directing
tho agent to tnko the machine out of
tho house, that, struggling, c ho nnd tho
constablo reached the door, ho main
taining his hold on her t that sho
touched tho machine now loaded upon
tho wagon by Trathen, was pulled off
by Woodward, thrown down, (or partly
so), struck, considerably hurl, nnd had
to keep her bod for some timo after
wards, tier daughter testifies in sub
stantial accord with her mother. Tho
defendants say that Mrs. Kinsley be
gan tho iissnult, struck tho ngent fierce
ly In tho region of tho stomach, mado
demonstration that sho was going to
strike him with a chair and did siriko
tho constable with it, and that
nothing more was dono on their part
than to protect lticmclves : it their
version is correct, tho second count is
scarcely mado out against them or cith
er of them. Hut, it bIio had planted
herself on the machine, nnd they did
pull herofT in order to get tho machine,
they would bo guilty of nsault and
ballciyiif she made nn attack upon
them, and 'hey did nothing more than
to g ard mselvcs they would not be
guilty, h.. ng n right to take iho ma
If both these defendants participated
in tho matter, they are both equally re
sponsible for whatever was done by
concert of action between them. If
tho agent did nothing to encourage any
assault upon jUrs. Kinsley, did not as
sent toany, then he is not guilty ; but
if the ngent nnd constable went on a
joint enterprise, intending, at all events,
to accomplish it, they are both equally
guilty or equally iunocont, as you may
find the fact to-be.
If you fiud tho defendants, or either
of them, guilty of either offense charg
ed in this indictment, you havo nothing
to say about costs ; if you acquit both
tho defendants on both counts, you will
impose costs upon tho prosecutor,
naming him, or upon the defendants or
either of them, or upon tho county, or
upon prosecutor and defendants in such
rales as you may deem fit.
How the Arthur Boom is Managed.
From the Washington Critic (Kep).
The conspiracy to nominate Arthur
thickens and assumes ohape, nnd the
tactics employed are of the log-rolling
kind, the "I ticklo you and you tlcklo

has sometimes won. The Republicans
of Indiana are to be mado solid for Ar
thur by n8socinting Postmaster Gener
al Grcsham's namo for the second place.
The same result is to bo achieved iu
Illinois with Secretary Lincoln's. In
Ohio itifi F-ister who is to have second
place. Aim bo on through tho cata
logue of Republican States, always
seeking to select a popular man for
second place. The game will scarcely
win in 1881. Une blast from blames

set up. Then Logan may havo some
