THE COLUMBIAN AND DEMOCRAT, BLOOMSBURG, COLUMBIA COUNTY, PA.
J. K. Blttsatandjr.J E""'
FRIDAY, AritlL 11, 1884.
LiUikawaiitiA county's now court
houso was opened witli appropriate
David Lowonbcrtf of this town nnd
Dr. It. 1). Fruit of lliizli-toti, wcro nt
pointed delegates to tho Democratic
National Convention, by tho represen
tatives to tho Statu Convention from
this congressional district, nt Allen
town last Tuesday.
Tho Times recently addressed nil
tho chairmen of tho democratic county
committees of Pennsylvania asking
answers to tho following t First, "Who
is tho favorite of the democrats of your
county for president t" ''Second, " Do
the Democrats of your county goner,
ally favor a tariff with incidental pro
tection or a tariff for rovenuo only 1"
Of tho sixty-sovim chairmen in tho
Btato sixty replied, fifty of whom un
hesitatingly declared Handull to bo the
cholco for president and tho others
declaring for "Tildcn or Itandall."
Only one county mentions any other
candidate, Qreeno couuty declaring for
Hancock. Moat ol tho "replies favor a
tariff with incidental protection, though
many of them simply express their
choice for president without referring
to tho tariff question.
The State Convention.
About 5000 people attended tho
Democratic State Convention on Wed
nesday at Allentown. Ex-Congressman
It. Milton Spcer of Huntington,
was chosen temporary chairman, who
was continued as permanent chairman
On taking his seat Mr. Speer said :
"To this graceful tributo I return ray
sincere acknowledgments, and in taking
this chair I do it with tho earnest pur
pose to presido impartially and fairly.
As I look you In tho lace I remember
the last democratic president who was
inaugurated, but not tho last who was
elected, was a Pennsylvanian, and I
hope tho issue ot this convention will
bo tho nomination of another Penn
sylvanian who will bo elected. Penn
sylvania could not be unmindful of
herself and tho democratic party can
not bo unmindful of her. As long as
tnero is employment tor labor she will
not turn' to tho democracy in vain. The
enlorcement of tho laws and tho piinh
catiou of the civil service arc dear to all
of us. A man has been named hero who
has been in the public service for twenty
five years and is to-day poorer than
when he enterod it. If he shall be
declared, as ho will be, the choice of
this convention for the national execu
tive, let him go not only with your
votes but with your hearts."
After the transaction of preliminary
business tho convention adjourned at
in --'I - -1- . .i .
ii uuiuus iu meet, at z p.m.'
THE rEltMANENT CONVENTION,
Mr. Spcer renewed his expression nf
thanks and announced Ins readiness to
d'lBpatuh business. It was announced
that tho committee on cotiti'Hted seats
would not bo ready to report before
three o clock, and the ch-iir sk-d what
the convention would he pleaded to do
meanwhile. A delegate proposed that
the platform committee bo r quested to
report and that was adopted. Con
gressman Mutchler presenting the re
port .During tho reading of tho reso
lutions tho li rut real enthusiasm wai
developed when the name of Samuel J,
Tilden was pionounced. Tho wholn
convention gave itself over to howling
ana lor several minutes all bUHineas
was suspended. Then tho resolution
was read and when tho tariff plank was
reached an outburst followed : but tho
climax came when Mr. Randall's namu
was mentioned and Mr. Mutchler be-
camo embarassed. When quiet was re
stored, lie proceeded with tho reading,
however, and the vote by which tho
report was unanimously adopted pro
vo-Kea a ireaii outburst. Iho cora
mitteo on credentials not being yet
ready a delegate called for Mr. Itan
dall and this was followed by a eener-
al cry for tho favorite son. Mr. Sneer
said that he didn't know that Mr. Itan
dall was present but would gladly eu
tertain a motion for a committee to
wait on him. Tho motion was made,
tho commtlteo appointed and Mr. bow
den called on to raako a Bpecch in tho
interval. Ho responded in his usual
eloquent style and was just warming
np to tho work when Mr. itandall
tntered by the stago door. "I give
way to thnnext president of the United
mates, ' said Jur. bowden, and tho con
vention stood up and yelled. For sev
era! minutes hats were thrown up and
pandemonium reigned. Mr. Uandall
meanwhile advanced to where Mr
Speer stood and tho gentleman with
words of welcome introduced him to
tho convention when he said :
REMARKS OP MR. RANDAL.!..
I am present in obedience to your re
quest and I desire to acknowledge mv
deep and lasting obligation to you, the
representatives ot more than tour nun
dred thousand democrats of this great
and glorious commonwealth, and to
thank' you for the high honor which
yon have to-day unanimously bestowed
upon me. 1 do not attrtuuto this action
lit any degreo to my personal merits.
On the contrary, I rccognizo and roa
lizo it as an approval of tho reBolute
and aggressive course which 1 bavo
pursued in congress in advocaoy and
defense of those cardinal principles ad
vocated by Jefferson, Jackson, Polk and
liiolmnan. A-it ban bjen wjtb me in
the past ho it will be to tho end, and
now I thank you one and all and beg
that each of vnu will convey back to
your constituents tho assurance that in
tho future they will find no faltering by
the wayside in deti ncu ot your nghtH
Then there was a freh outburnt, and
the idol of the people hid himself in the
scenery. The rnutioo proceedings were
resumed alter the episode,
Senator Kennedy reported that tho
committee on conti'HtB had agreed, and
the report was adopted. General Da
vis was nominated for congressman at-
large. Eleolors-at-large were chosen,
utter which tho uaiioiu g lor delegates-
at larguwas proceeded with. This was
tho subject in wh ch tho greatent inter

Tho resolutions ndopted by tho con
vention on Wednesday nre ns follows :
1. Tho democratic party of Penn
sylvania, in. statu convention met, do
elates lis unalterable determination to
maintain thoso principles of govern
ment ordained by tho federal constitu
tion and their true interpretation which
tho founders of the partv Mettled and
nado known, and denounces tho late
attempts by the ngonta of the federal
government to overturn theso princi
ples by judicial legislation nnd execu
2. Wo nre against centralization,
monopoly, oxtrnvacant expenditure.
Htibsidies and a debasement of tho civil
service to partisan spoliation.
3. Wo believo the electoral frnud
of 1870 77, bv which Samuel J. Tilden
nnd Thomas A. Ileudiicks were cheat
rd out of the offices of president nnd
vico president, to which they wero
fairly elected, was tho most deadly
blow over aimed at our system of rep
resentative government, and jlie duty
of driving from power tho men aud
mrty who made that train! triumphant
is tho most sacred obligation ever im
posed upon the consciences of freenioti.
4. wo lavor n tanil for revenuo
limited to the necessities of tho govern
ment economically administered nnd
so adjusted in its application as to pre
vent unusual burdens and encourago
productivo industries at homo and af
ford just compensation to labor, but-
not to create nud foster monopolies :
and to this end wo favor tho abolition
of tho internal revenue system of taxes,
and Biich adjustment of the existing
tariff duties as will bo consistent with
o. M'ery legitimate effort of labor
to belter its condition, advance its re
ward and protect its right commands
tho sympathy aud support of the dem
ocratic party. Tho importation under
contract of foreign pauper labor is an
evil which should bo remedied by ju
G. We favor tho enforcement of tho
constitution of Pennsylvania in its
every articlo aud section and especially
demand tho regulation by law in ac
cordance therewith of tho corporations
of tho state, the equalization of the tax
laws, tho appropriation of public mon
ey to public uses only, an honest man
agement ot tho state treasury and rigid
enlorcement ot tho laws governing it.
7. iho retusal ot tho republican
members of the, legislature to agree to
a just apportionment of tho state was a
flagrant violation of the constitution,
for unworthy partisan purposes. We
denounce their course ; wo approve the
determination of thu democratic gov
ernor, representatives and senators to
insist upon an honest and fair appor
tionment, and we commend the pres
ent democratic state administration for
its maintenance of the constitution, its
enforcement of tho law aud its honest
and oauablo discharge of public duties.
8. mat Samuel J. Kandall is the
choice of tho democrats of Pennsylva
nia as the candidate ot the party tor
president. By long faithful public ser
vices he has illustrated unfaltering de
votion to high political principle and
leaity to the democratic party, tits
honesty and honor, his capacity and
courage, his faithful labors and signal
abilities have merited, and won for him

Grow on the Presidenoy.
Eic-Speaker G.iltwlia A. Grnw- was
recently intei viewed on the subject of
"I'em svlvaniaisftrongly for lilatne.
said Mr. Grow, "and I believe that he
will be nominated at Chicago unless
the deliberate judgment of the conven
lion will be that some other man
would be Rirdnger. Remember, that
the Juno Convention at Chicago will
bo about the first deliberative National
Convention tho Republicans have had
sinco I860, when the majority preferred
Seward, but tho deliberate judgment of
tho body was that Seward; could not
"The Juno Chicago Convention,"
oontinued Mr. Grow, "will bb emphat
ically a deliberative body, and it will
seek to select tho strongest man. If
that judgment shall indicate iilaine, he
will undoubtedly be nominated ; if not,
some other man will bo taken. The
Democrats meet a month or moro after
our convention, and however unprom
ising the Democratic outlook may bo
in June, we must be prepared to con
quer a Napoleon. The Democrats may
bo weak in June and strong in July,
and wo must take our strongest man,
and I now believe Blaine to be that
man. The Southern delegations will
not Beek to forco any candidate upon
the party against the better judgment
of tho delegations from tho debatable
Mates, and 1 lock for a grand delibera
tive Convention that will confer until
the strongest man shall bo ascertained
and then nominate him.."
Mr. Grow is a delegato to tha Ro-
Li! o. i r . . ., .
puoucan ouuo Vyonveniion, out no de
clares that it is no indication of his re
turn to political life."
A Porlorn Hose.
As the tunes for tho conventions of
the two partits draw near, theie is less
inturext in the result of their delibera
tions than was to be expected. While
this is somewhat surprising, tho rea
sons for it are entirely obvious. A
close contest always develops intense
interest in the preliminary struggle,
but where the result of tho ultimate
batth) is so clearly forecast, as in the
case in the present instance, much of
tho exoitement gives place to the apathy
mat ueioncs to uespair.
With tho republican party united
and harmonious this year there might
nave been suincient hope of viotory to
induce an active effort on the part of
the manager", nut instead ol that the
organization Is broken into fragments
aud dtstracto-l by adversa and con
dieting iuteieta to such an extent that
all promises of snoops novo departed. In
this state the Blaine people arc con
ducting what Heeins to bn nu earnest
endeavor to nominate their favorite. It
is, however, thu shallowest pretense.
Thoir only purposo js to crucify aud
destroy tho other faction of their own
parly. That accomplished thoir zeal
will ilag and die out, aud when the
mam battle comes on they will refuse
to meet the dangers and expenses of
In any aspect in which tho case is
presented they are alike hopelessly in

Massachusetts and tho Pacific states
Inst bevond the nossibilitv of re
covcry. If Blaine is defeated for tho
nomination Pennsylvania, Ohio and a
number of other states in which his
adherents am numerous and influential
will default in tho November contest.
With corruption and chicanery ruling
their primary contests 11 is not surpris
itiL that these conditions are apparent,

Sympathy fdr tho Amerioan laborer,
tenner soniMimiu lor vuu wurKing'iiau,
whloh has slumbered now for close
upon four years, begins at last to
awaken. Iu the course of tho next
foW monthi we shall find men perfect
ly frantic in their devotion to tho In
borer's Interests and their desire for his
vote. And this will last until after
lection, nud then tho labor question
will not trouble tho politicians for four
years ngain. AUoona Times.
Blaino has a boom in thu republican
camp jlist now. Pennsylvania will jro
to Chicago with n delegation almost
solidly instructed for him, but thu hand
of tho machim can be seen sticking
out very prominently in tho fact that
many of tho delegates who havo been
chosen nre among thoso who four years
nsro went back on their instructions for
Blaine, nnd bellied to defeat him.
While the republican sentiment of this
stnte in favor of Bljiino is too strong to
permit of Instructions for any body
else, his friends havo been content with
securing instructions, without regard
to the record of tho delegates, and the
stalwart element has controlled tho
appointments, Tho object of this is to
irevent lilatne from throwing his
strength to his favorite nfter he is off,
u caso ho cannot bo nominated, itiu
Stalwarts aro not for Blaine, nor any
of his kind , and many of tho Penn-
ylvania delegation will bo found vot
ing for Arthur or.Kdmunds after Blaine
ij out of tho way, and will quietly do
all they can to defeat him. It looks
as though tho Chicago Convention
might causo a big row in the republi
Internal Berenne Stamps.
Manufacturers of and dealers in,
spirits, beer, tobacco or cigars, havo
been notified that applications will now
bo received for special tax stamps and
special tax stumps issued for tho year

must be procured and posted on pre

will be received lor stamps.
The Great Place for Gold.
MINERS GROWING RICH IN THE WONDER-
Fill. COEUR D' AI.ENP. REGION.
A dispatch from St. Paul, Minn.,
says that State Senator Griggs has re
turned from the Cccur d' Alene region
and says that tho yield of gold the
coming season will be extraord.nary.
Une miner, ' said he, "who a tew
weeks ago was too' poor to buy, his
own outht, has tanen out ipauut worm
from a placer six feet square. Another
has sold quarter of his claim of five
acres for $10,000 cash. A miner at
Kathdrum has sent, $1200 in gold to
the United States Mint He showed me
three nuggets worth $167.
"lhc merchants at Spokane fall
have taken in $40,000 front the min
ers iu exchange for supplies. A few
of the places are working, but on, most
of thi-m there aro from two to twentv
feci of snow. The 8 iow,however,is melt-
ug rapidly and the miners who are
working take out $40 a ay per mm.
The men who jumped the "Widows"
claim last Full, while fighting thn mat
ter in courts, have taken out $18,000.
The to are 500Q men in the mines and
their claims cannot be bought. Many
sit with gun in hand watching their
claims. People are flocking into the
mirung region at the rate of 100 a day.
Al Thompson s alls over 100 build-
ngs havo been erected in the last two
weeks. I anticipate an influx of from
50,000 to 100,000 people."
Payne not a Candidate.
The Washington Post of the 4th
inst. contains tho following interview :
"Was the statement purporting to
como from you regarding Senator-elect
1'ayne of Ohio not being a candidate
for President, published in this morn
ing's Post, authentic 1" was asked of
Dr. Muuford of the Kansas City
"It was, he replied. "I am well
acquainted with' Col. Payne, son of the
Seuator-elect, having been thrown with
him on a voyago to Liverpool last
summer. We then talked a good deal
of politics, and ho told mo of a good
many things that, have siuce come to
pass in Ohio. After his father's elec
tion I wrote him a congratulatory let
ter, in which I hinted at the possible
availability of his fattier as a President
caudidate. In course of time ho re
plied, thanking me personally, and also
tor what tho Uimet dad said in de
fence of his father against ill advised
and unjust, attacks. In that letter he
stated that his father would uot be a
candidate for President, but as he did
not say he would not accept tbo nomi
nation if tendered him, I, like overy
body else, was of the opinion he would,
and that his friends nnd family would
bo very glad to havo him nominated.
1 met Uol. 1'ayne in Isow York
last, Friday, and had a long and con-
lideutial talk with him on the Butiject,
To my surprise and disappointment,
i;oi. ray no men not only reiterated
what, ho had written me but assured me
in the most positive manner that not
only was his father not a candidate, but
that ho would not accept tie nomina
tion if ho knew he could receive it
without effort, and was assured of
election afterward, His reasons were
entirely personal and were based on his
father s ngo and condition ot health ;
that while he was in most excellent
.health, for a man of his age, and was
fully prepared to discharge the duties
of beuator, ho was not able to undergo
tho excitements of a political cam
naicn and tho worry and wrantfles of
thu i'resKlvucy, SvOI. rayno iniormed
me that they held a family conference
on the subject that this was their filial
aud irrevocable conclusion, In wliicu
his father coiucidtd. He then author
ized and requested me to give publi
city to this statement as coming from
him, and I telegraphed, it to ray pa
per." Dr. Muuford said to an Associated
Press reporter that ho had an inter
view with Congressman Paige of Ohio,
through, whom tbo denial ot the autu
oi mo interview puruorveu vo
come, and that Mr. Paige said he had
not received cither letter or a telegram
from Col. Payno referring to tho in
terviow in any manner, nor did ho
know of any ono elso haying received
anything from Col Puj no on the sub
ject. Congressman Graves and ex
Cougressiuau Franklin of Missouri
wero niesent at tno interview uevween
Muuford and Mr, Paige, and heard tho

porting to como to him.

an Indian was hanged there on suspi

Stories about thu prodigality of
Americans, and the astounding pro
jects which they aro supposed to bo
continually forming, are very rife in
Europo Tho Utest seems to be tho
largest, aud is solemnly told by the
Fiffaro, of Paris. It is to the effect
that "twelve American millionaires
have united aud intend to build in Jo
rusalcm a temple- that shall exactly
correspond to that which was deitioy

The sinking of tho steamer Daniel
Steimnann and loss of 130 lives adds
ono more to the largo list of disasters
whioh have lately occurred by flood

miinn the large loss of life is apparent
ly to be attributed to the consti notion
of tho vessel, which was long and nar
row and built on a model which ex
perience has, unhappily, proved to be
entirely incapable of holding together
after striking. Cyclones, riots, mine
explosions and wrecks at sea have fol
lowed each other with startling rapid
ity, and death has claimed, with rigid
impartiality, large numbers from both
those who travel and these who stay at

consequences are to be attributed to tho
absence of foresight and care on the
