broken In nearly every houso in the town.
Tho path of tho storm was three and a half

The game of bull between Berwick and

tlio latter by 10 to 0. At tho end of tho
eighth inning it stood 0 to 0, and on the
ninth the Berwick boys were put out with
out n run, by three successive flics taken
by Klcchncr In the left field. Bloom wont
to tho bat nnd made ono run and the game
closed without playing the Inning out. Ber
wick imported n pitcher and catcher from
Nanticokc, and came evidently with tho
expectation ot winning an easy victory,
and were considerably disappointed at tho
result. During tho gamo thero was too
much fault found with the umpire. He in
tended to act fairly, and did so to the best
of his judgment. Tho loud talk of specta
tors and unfavorable criticism of tlio um
pire during tho gamo ought to bo .stop.
Miss Mamc Sloan, daughter of tho late
A. J Sloan, died at her homo on Sunday
morning. For some tlmo she has been in
ill health, hut was confined to her bed only
for a few weeks. Her sufferings were In
tense, but sho retained consciousness until
tho last moment, and expressed her wil
lingness to die. She was a young lady of
lovable disposition nnd Christian character,
and her loss is a heavy ono to her assocl
atcs and friends. To her aunt, Miss Mat
tio Wells, who for many years has filled
the place of a mother, and to her brothers,
H. W. and W. M. Sloan, her death Is a
severe blow, and the sympathy of tho com.

LlLLBV & SlKI'I'Y,
Editoiu Columbian i
I endorse every word and Hue of your
editorial of last week entitled "The Next
Congressman," and am freo to say should
I be the choice of Columbia county, I will
uso all honorable means to secure au en
dorscinent of tho conferenco j but should
I fall, then party usages entitle Hon. John
B. Storm, present member, to tho nomina
tion, and without paying my expenses of
canvass. I would further consult tho
leading Democrats of tho county as to my
J. M. O. Basck.
Dr. Megargell has in his possession
somo letters from Mr, Storm, showing that
tho friendliest relations exist between them.
Wo nro assured that If tho Doctor should
bo tho cholco of this county for congress,
that his lnflucnco will ho given to Mr.
Storm In caso the district nomination can
not be obtained for himself.
A Good W'oril for M. 1 ltycrly.
Wo would most earnestly recommend to
the public Mr. M. F. Eycrly, candidate for
tlio Plllco of Register & Recorder, ono well
qualified In every respect of sterling lion
esty and Integrity, possessing also qulto an
amount of legal knowlcdgo which would
be of great scrvlco In said oftlco ; tho old
est candldato, a man of couslderablo ex
perience nnd worth, always un honorable
nnd respectable citizen of thls'place, This
is ono reason why ho should be supported,
besides, In cvory position Mr. K. has filled,
ho tried to discharge his duties to tho cn
tiro satisfaction of nil concerned, never
llluchlng when right was In the case, no
matter how distasteful u task to perform,
his motto being "do unto others as you
would bo dono by." Mr. E. will not court
public popularity or votes by tho offer of
free intoxicating drinks (as remarked upon
by opponents), which should be no detri
ment but rather an Inccntlvo, for men of
Intellect and culturo to support him, He
would rather loso tho election than gain
it In this manner.
This noblo principle should elcvato Mr.
Eycrly i not crush his prospects or bo raised
ns an obstaclo in his way. Just meu of this
stamp aro qualified for public olllces, but
Let all his friends prove such by doing
and working In good earnest, and w
would say to him "NIJ Dsporandum."

Tlio track at tho fair grounds has been
enlarged to n full half mile. Tho grand
stand nnd Judges' stand wilt bo removed to
tho west sldo of tho track, thereby afford
ing u much belter view of tho whole track

as flno n rnco course as thero Is In tho stntc.
Arrangements nro being mado which will
bring somo good horses hero this fall, nnd
thoso who enjoy trials of speed will have
an opportunity to witness some first class
races. A number of other Improvements
nro contemplated on tho grounds.
Early In the spring tho Columiiian an
nounced that Its columns were open to
nnybody for tho discussion of any subject
proper for publication. It has invited cor.
respondenco touching the political situation
In this county, but received only two or
three communications, and to these tho
writers were unwilling to sign their names.
It has boldly denounced all political meth
ods that linvo a corrupting tendency, nnd
insisted that tho campaign should be con
ducted entirely within tho law and tho
rules of tho party. To show that It was
sincere. In this, It offered to subscribe fifty
dollars towards a fund to bo used In tho
conviction of any person who violated tho
election laws, and urged that the fund bo
enlarged to five hundred dollars. Not a
single individual endorsed the proposition,
and not a cent has been offered by any
body towards such a fund. One of scv.
crnl things must be true ; there is no re
form necessary, or this paper has been
mistaken In Its efforts to bring It about.
Wc have Insisted that If nny person
know of Improper practices on the part of
any candidate, that the fact should be pub
lished, openly, honestly and fearlessly, and
have offered to print anything on the sub
ject that was accompanied by the name of
a responsible person. Wo have frequently
criticised tho practice of circulating char
ges against candidates, nnd have Insisted,
nnd always will Insist, that such charges shall
bo fairly made and openly sustained, or bo
looked upon with suspicion. Wo have en
deavored to bo strictly impartial, and have
had no regard for persons lu the appllca
tlon of these principles, seeking only that
which, ns a general rule, we believed to bo
for the best Interests of tho party. All
that can bo done now is to urge nil
voters to attend the delcgato election on
August 0th, nnd cast their ballots for those
who they bellcvo are best qualified for tho
positions to bo filled. If you believe any
candldato Incompetent, do not vote for
him; if you believe any ono dishonest,
Tote for somo ono else ; If you bellcvo that
Improper means hayo been used to secure
votes, vote accordingly. At all events, GO
TO THE POLLS AND YOTE.

What a bonanza tho county elections nro
to tho landlords nnd political dead beats.
It is wealth for the ono nnd freo whiskey
for the other.
Wo notice tho hotels nro filled half tho
time with these would-be county ofllccrs
and their following. Can not a candidate
canvass the votes of his district without
getting all the dead beats drunk ? Wc no-
tlce somo few of tho candidates will not
stoop to this whiskey bribery to Influence
votes, and they arc the ones best fitted to
1111 the olllces.
It seems to me that a man holds n very
poor opinion of another when he thinks to
bribe or lnflucnco his vote by a drink of
whiskey ; and yet that is just what somo
of these candidates aro doing, offering n
drink of whiskey for your greatest privi
lege as an American citizen. And some of
these candidates have not even tho grncc
to feel ashamed of theso disreputable meth
ods, but they publicly avow that they buy
It by tho barrel and use It In their canvass
nnd, as If this wns not disgraceful enough,
they oiler to pay the bills of their pimps at
baudy houses. Will any Intelligent, re
spectable man vote for ono who stoops to
such methods to secure his election ? I
wish somo one more able than I would
take this matter up and show up the char
acter and methods of these candidates, and
then let the voters determine who is best
fitted for tho olllces. Let merit, not whis
key, elect tho men. IlErortM.

AFFIDAVIT OF W.M. KUIOKllAUir.
Columhia County sa :
Before me, John M. Clark, a Justice of
the Pcaco lu nnd for said county, personal
ly came Wm. Krlckbaum, who being duly
sworn according to law, deposeth aud
salth. That to all of the above questions
except 4th deponent says, No.
As to 4th question deponent has this to
say j bometlmo In October of Inst year, nr.
rnngemcnts wero mado wltli tho commit
teemen of Fishlngcrcek, Benton, Jackson
and Sugarloaf townships to meet tho coun
ty chairman and deponent at Benton, for
tho purpose of making arrangements to get
out the Democratic voto in the aforesaid
townships; hnving met nt the tlmo appoint
ed nnd when nbout ready to proceed to
business Mr. Kverhart of Jackson stopped
in front of the Hess Hotel, and when re
quested by tlio depoucnt to como into tho
house, replied, that ho had a barrel of
sweet cider to dispose of first. Thedepon
cut wishing him to assist in tho caucus,
thought tho only way to mnko suro of it,
was to get rid of '.he elder, asked M Wire-
man if he wanted It, nnd upon his answer
ing In tlio nlllrmatlvc, the deponent order
ed it to be taken to Mr. Wlrcmnn'snnd then
paid for it. What Mr. Wircman did with
it tho depouent has no knowledge. As to
tho barrel of whiskey tho deponent snys,
that ho lias not n barrel of whiskey nt tho
new jnil nor anywhere else.
In answer to slanderous reports circulat
ed by Wm. II. Snyder that tho deponent
sent out demijohns of whiskey by tho Ben
ton stago to Daniel Kams, James Wircmnn
or to any other person, nro untrue ; and
for the purposes of deceiving tho voters
nnd to Injure tho deponent.

A few weeks ngo 1 requested Mr. Krlck
baum to answer n few questions over his

I would ask Mr Krlckbaum again if ho
did not purchase a barrel of elder from Au
gustus Evarhart of Jackson township, and
placo it In James Wcirman's cellar to bo
used for electioneering purposes ?
2nd. I also nsk him If he did not invito
Messrs D. Kams, James Wclrman aud
Jesse Hartman to go with him to the
Mountain a few weeks aco, keen them
clear, give them money and after he re
turned to Bloomsburg, send Messrs. D.
Kams and Jesse Hartman each n demi
john of whiskey up in the stnge?
3rd. I also ask him if ho did not get a
barrel of whiskey, directly or Indirectly, nt
Fowler's distillery, and havo It hauled to
tho new jail, and if his friends do not con
grcgato thero at night and on Sunday to
drink it ?
4tu. I also ask him If ho has not re
quested 'persons to bring their demijohns
to him to get them filled, during tho pres
ent campaign, nnd if ho has not had ono In
the vault of his otllco 1
Oth. I also ask him if ho has not had
boxes of beer delivered at the Lime Ridge
back of Afton, nnd in private cellars at
different plaecs, and If he lias not taken
whiskey with him electioneering ?
Oth. I also ask him If he has not given
men money, whiskey and beer In violation
of tho rules governing our County Convcn
tion and tlio election laws ?
I have not tho slightest prejudice against
jir. nricKoaum, nut i am violently op
posed to any candidate corrupting the peo
pie to secure his election, which Is a shame
and disgrace to any civilized community
If Mr. Krlckbaum Is innocent let him
make a clear, clean and positive statement
his affldavlt. I am sorry Mr. Krlckbaum
did not reply to my questions sooner so I
would hayo had nn opportunity to reply
before the primary election.
i,ci it no aejmutiy unucniood that we
want an honest, unequhical statement, con
