THE COLUMBIAN AND DEMOCRAT, BLOOMSBURG, COLUMBIA COUNTY, PA.
FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 13, 1885.
G rover Cleveland spont last Sunday
with Samuel J. Tilden at Grovstonc.
Tho Governor's veto of tho Phila
delphia Magistrate's bill has been sus
tained. Messrs. Fritz and Bryson vo
itod'to sustain tho veto.
Tho present legislature is strongly
republican. It has been in session
over a month nnd has passed only one
bill, and that was vetoed by tho gov
ernor. President-elect Cleveland, Vlco Pres
ident Hendricks and many other prom
inent democrats from all over the coun
try, will attend tho reception of tho
Americas Club at Philadelphia on the

Edwin Botheras, convicted at Wilkes
Barre for tho killing of William Nich
ols at Hazleton last March, will be
hanged on April 7th. His death war
rant was read to him on Monday, and
at its close he wept like a child and
'throw himself on tho bed.
Tho expedition fitted out for the re
lief of Lieut. Greely and his Arctic ex
ploring party cost the government
8759,205- Tho North Polo never has
been found, and it is not likely it ever
will bo. It is about time that such
useless expenditures cease.
Tho Board of Pardons refused to in
terfere in the caso of Dr. L. U. Beach
who murdered his wife, and his execu
tion. took place at Holidaysburg on the
12th inst. He spent his last di)H in
writing an autobiography to bo printed
and sold for the benefit of his chil
dren. Governor Pattison denies the story
that ho would ontor tho ministry when
his terra as Executive had expired. "I
do not know how the story started," ho
says j "but I presumo it was be
cause I have made a couple of address
es in churches and was lay member of
the last Goneral Conference of the
Methodist Episcopal Church."
. It is pretty certain that Samuel J.
Randall will not acccept a cabinet po
sition, preferring his seat in tho House.
Mr. Randall's decision is a wise one, as
ho can do his party and his country
more good in Congress than as a cab
met officer. No appointments have
yot been made by Sir. Cleveland
Among those talked of are Bayard
Garland, Whitney, McDonald, Vilas
Among ,vo, bills introduced in th
.Legislature is one pronibiting persons
irom treating otner persons to intoxi
eating drinks. Another bill provides
tnat any merchant who invites purclia
sers uy tne otter ot money or articles ci
value shall be fined $25 for the first
offense and 350 for subsequent offen
sea. The author of this bill says in his
preamble mat he introduced tho riieas
uro in order to discourage gambling.
Mrs. Dudley who shot O'Donovan
Rossa, is an English woman, and has a
checkered life, blio has been in this
country but a few months. Sho is an
enthusiast, and no doubt thought she
was aoing me world a great good
when she shot the dynamiter. Rossa
and his friends insist that sho was sent
hero by tho British government to kill
him, but thero is not the slightest
proof of this. She is only a crank, but
sue mignt have been torgiven for this
if she had taken better aim, even
though sho had to hang for it. Rossa
is improving, and will attempt to make
a hero ot himselt out ot this attair.
The British troops in Egypt have
met wim roverscs, and it is reported
mat uen. uoraon is Killed.
Speaking of England's position tho
woria says :
Great Britain's interest in Egypt is
wholly commercial. Tho Suez Canal,
in which tho English Government owns
snares to me amount ot $20,000,000,
attracts a large share of the Eastern
trafho and Egypt is now tho direct road
to inuia. ihis is ono excuse for sui'

And he seems to need it, for he has
grossly mismanaged his own affairs.
The estimated revenue of thocountiv
is about $50,000,000, and of course the
expenditure is more, for the Khedive
has borrowed larire sums of money, in
eluding a great deal from England, and
has expended it extravagantly in luxu
ry and display. It is a comparatively
poor country, us best production and
export, cotton, amounting to less than
14,000,000 a year.
At the end of tho year 1883 Egypt
bad a consolidated debt of $477,000,
000, with a floating debt in addition of
!fai,HD13u.r, The European powers
which hold the greater part of this
debt each have in Egypt what are In
courtesy called "Fiuaucial Advisers,1
meaning sharp agents who will see that
enough is saved lroni tho revenue to
pay tho interest on the bonds, held by
meir respective governments, or by in
dividuals in their respective countries;
but the holders of the bonds aro lucky
if they get any interest at all, and tho
local events ot thu past year, especially
or me past lew weens, have not mater
lally appreciated the value of thu
A comparatively minor considera
tion is Great Britain's direct trade with
Egypt. In 1883 England exported to
that country coals, textures, diugs, ixo..
to the amount of $15,507,400 ami im
ported from Kgypt, including tho con
sideroblo item of .cotton, products to
tho amount ot a little moro than $o0,
000,000. A protectorate would bring
the amounts of export and import near
For the interference of England In
Egyptian affairs at all is merely a mat
ter of business. There is no pretense
of a eon diet between tho Cross and the
Crescent, no Exeter Hall parade of
carrying Chiutianity and civilization
to the Desert batbarians. In its orig
inal form and intent it is a question of
calico, cheese, tho collection of debts

Tho Capital durini? tho week seems
to havo been shifted to Now York citv.
il least Now lork has been llio cen
tre of political Interest, but not half ns
many Democratic Congressmen went
to see the President-elect ns were re
ported to havo gone. A fuw who went
have returned and seem to bo one nnil
all much pleased with what they had
seen of the coining man, who is praised
as a courtoous listener nnd a frank talk
er. Affectation nnd mystery are not
among tho faults of Mr. Cleveland.
iNothlng lias been learned about the
cabinet; it is evidently tho intention of
tho president to take all tho timo tho
law allows him to build it, nnd sinco
his Cabinet can do nothimr until nfter
tho fourth of March, this deliberation
would seem to bo proper nnd politic.
A certain class of ifovcriniiotit clerks
nro quietly preparing to go. Thoy nro
the chiefs of Bureaus nnd their chief
clerks, also a largo cumber who nro
conscious of their shady political ante
cedents. A lame maioritv are honinc
that they may avoid that fell sweep of
tho new broom. The opinion of thoso
who have a practical knowledge of af
fairs in tho Government offices is that
thero can bo no real improvement in
government work until nino tenths of
tho clerks, who uro drones and politi
cians, havo been swept out nnd been
replaced, not necessarily by Doraocrats
exclusively, but by competent men nnd
There is a great deal of local talk
about tho inauguration, which is now
only three weeks distant. Tho Demo
crats, of course, desire that the parade,
tho ball, tho lire works, tho decorations
and tho crowd, shall compare in re
spectability, tasto and splendor with
any previous similar occasion. I think
their vanity will bo gratified. There
will be i lino parade of citizen soldiery
and civio organizations. The night
will bo painted in all the hues of the
rainbow by fireworks ; and the ball in
a hall large enough to accommodate
12,000, and which nny one can attend
for tho consideration cf five dollars
will be simply stupendous.
General Hancock declined to lead
tho parade from tho AVIiito House to
tho Capitol on tho ground of u recent
death in his family, and Genertl Mo
CU'llan, to whom the honor was next
lenndercd, declined on account of en
gagements. It is well enough, for
neither of theso old gentlemen can sit
a horse as well as ho could twenty-five
years ago, nnd tho leader of this parade
must bestride a goodly steed. General
Sloeuni has accepted tho command of
tho ephemeral army, and there is no
doubt that the briel campaign will be
As it is anticipated that a greater
number of military organizations and
civio associations will be in lino on tho
fourth of March than were ever assem
bled here on inauguration day, tho task
to bo assigned to General Slocum is
not an easy one. Four years ago Gen
eral Sherman, with a large number of
aids, found the labor of marshalling
and moving the pniade a greater one
than he had anticipated. It is nomi
nally an honor, but in fact a very la
borious responsibility to assume tho di
rection and movement of a vast collec
tion of organizations in the brief time
allowed for such a parade.
On Wednesday the formal counting
of electoral votes for President will
take placo in Congress.

but one, tho Military Academy bill,

It awaits the action of tho President.
The condition of business in Congress
is such that a minority of either house
can easily force an extra session. But
it is not apparent that there is any pur
pose to do so. , The leaders of both
houses express the opinibn that tho ap
propriation bills will be passed before
tho 4th of March, in which case no ex

A Civil Service Administration.
i-resiuent-oiecl Uleveland has not
said many things fur the benefit of tho
public during his visit to New York.
In fact, he Bcems to have devoted his
time chiefly to private consultations
with prominent members of his own
political party on questions rclatim? to
wiu organization ami policy ot his uew
administration. It was scarcely to be
expected that the details of theso confi
dential consultations would bo given to

seekers who called to siunifv their
readiness to fill tho official ranks as
soon as some vacancies wero made for
them wero told that ho did not wish to
clean out the Augean stables by a pro
cess that would make them fouler than
ever and alienate tho men who had
voted for him on civil service princi
ples. In other words he did not intend
to turn out ono set of rascals merely to
mako places for rascals of another po
litical complexion. Tho civil service
refrnui he professed before election bo
proposed to live up to after election
and that meant that removals would bu
raado for cause and vacancies filled by
men who had something to recommend

this nuiot announcement on tho part
of tho President-elect of his intention
to conduct his administration on tho
same general business plan which
characterized his Gubernatorial admin
istration was not needed to assure
thoso who knew Mr. Cleveland best
that his pledges would bu kept. Still
the pabho at large will bo glad of his
renewed assurance, as it clearly
foreshadows an honest intention on the
part of tho President to ndminister tho

u a partisan interest. Tho doleful

SHOULD THE LAW BE AMENDED ?
Criminal laws nro certain legislative
enactments clothed with stipula
ted bains nnd penalties, and cnu-
mrrating specifically what constitutes
crime, nnd tho order of procccduru to
punish tho one, and to vindicate the
other by submitting the snmu to the
sworn judgment of a Itiry for decision
after deliberating upon tho evidence
produced. Legislative bodies are Inde
pendent of, and co-ordmato with thu
other branches of government, and
probably the most important of nil, as
they aro tho law making power, and
can only bo held in check by tho veto
power of tho executive, or their enact
ments rendered null nnd void by judic
ial decisions on constitutional grounds.
As nil interests are represented in all
legislative bodies, individual infl.icuco
upon such bodies avails hut lilttle, ex
cept by petitions numerously signed,
and setting forth local advantages do
rived by certain local enactments not
nutngonistio to the general laws, for
which special laws aro passed with lit
tlo or no opposition. A legislative
body is never deaf to tho demands nnd
interest of their constituents. Laws aro
therefore parsed for the better protec
tion against unjust encroachments from
various source.'', nnd for the promotion
and welforo of local communities us
well as for the community nt large. It
is also necessary that the laws should
chango and vary with progress, times
and circumstances, and in accordance
with general public opinion.
From observation in legal nnd crim
inal proceedings in courts of justice in
different states, there is a law relating
to homicide that deserves some notice
and to which we will hero mako allu
sion, and which we think should either
bo repealed, or amended, and specify
ing what constitutes justifiable homi
cide, if thero bu such a thing as justifi
able homicide. Hence tho question, is
thero justifiablo homicide 1 Wo never
thought thero was, except in caso of
purely self-defenso. But past experi
ence in publio opinion, and the general
verdict of tho people say thero is.
Therefore wu beliuvo that such a thing
exists. For illu-tratiou, Common
wealth vs. James Nutt, tried for tho
murder of Dukes and acquitted, and
Commonwealth of N. "i. vs. Rawlo
tried for thu murder of his wife's para
mour and acquitted, ami all similar
cases in theso parallel lines in which
juries usurp prerogatives not clearly in
cumbent upon them, seeming justifia
ble, hence, an utter impossibility to
convict, the law and evidence to tho
contrnry notwithstanding. Sineo then
publio opinion and juries coincide in
justifying such a course, therefore let
juries bo lawfully authorized to exer
cise the functions of tho pardoning
power in tho jury box, as they do any
way in too many instances. And ltt
the struggle between oath bound olli
gations on tho one hand, and conscience
nnd justice on tho other cease. Ac
cording to pub'.ic opinion, and univer
sal demand for tho acquittal of tho
above named culprits during teir try
ing ordeal last winter, who, through
tho most aggravating provocation, and
repeated and most repulsive encroach
ments upon the chastity, peace nnd
happiness in domestic affairs commit
ted homicide, the ends of justice were
best subserved, by Acquittal, nnd the
verdicts received with universal natis
faction and approbation, and the juries
commended nnd highly applauded by
an appreciative public. How a jury
under existing laws can bo exonerated
from their sworn obligations when tho
homicide is clearly proven, and ac
knowledged by tho accused, in render
ing a verdict for acquittal contrary to
law nnd testimony is a point we fail to
see, except however, in case of actual
insanity, or self-defense. Wo never
believed that Nutt and Rawle should
havo been punished, but always doubt
ed tho right, or propriety of tho juries
to acquit them. Wo always believed
tho result a just ono and in accordance
with public sympathy and opinion, but
always failed to see how tho ends of
justico could honorably bo met in tho
manner they were. Wo do not wish
nor intend to censuro or criminate ju
ries, but would plead for a deliverance
from thoso unjust obligations in cases
of justifiable homicide, for tho reason
that precedents are fully and firmly es
tablished without any probability or
even a possibility, and perhaps without
an inclination to ro verse similar future
decisions. At all events tho precedents
in future will be cited and icferred to
ns examples worthy of imitation aud
as highly commendable in tho past,
aud through which the ends of justice
wero best and most satisfactorily an
swered by tho acquittal of tho accused,
and which will have their' influence and
desired effeot upon future juries. We
believe that universal opinion should
culminate into law, or cease to bo law
as tho caso may bo. Hence juries are
tied and bound to a law by solemn
oath, when, by common consent, thei
better judgment must either be respect
ed, or violated, or tho oath in the ren
dering of thpir verdict. If thero is
justifiablo homicide we should like to
sco the law amended. If not, then le
juries bo responsible1 for acting in bad
faith in the faco of n violated and
broken law whose guardians thoy aro.

down from 75 to 55 cents;
Lupin's " Rayon d' Or"
down from $1.25 to 75 cents,
" Daisy Cloth " is like a
Clutdda, the India-shawl
fabric; a dainty twill of soft
long.fibre wool, finely spun
and not too closely woven ;
never heavy, never light, but
with an airy softness in its
drapery that lends its easy
grace to common use as well
as to more luxurious dress.
Like the oriental Chudda, it
belongs to no time of year.
It is fit to be as universal in
its use as Cashmere, the
other India fabric whose ori
gin is forgotten in our fam
iliarity with it. Chudda and
Cashmere differ only a trifle
i'i the weaving. One is as
r.cavy or light as the other, as
durable or frail. Lupin's
Cashmere and Lupin's
Chudda or "Daisy Cloth,"
both, have the same title to
permanent acceptance, viz.,
ancient origin in the nativf
land of the loom, and the
work of the greatest loom
inanager in the land of
modern textile wonders. We

" Rayon d'Or" is the pop
lin weave; but poplin is harsh
and "Rayon d'Or" is softer.
It is about the same as the
well-known Empress. Made
by another it would have
been Empress. Made by
Lupin it is "Raycn d'Or."
It is heavy and strong and
fine. You will buy it for
double reason: its goodness
and the fifty cents you save
on every yard.
Very strong twilled
