THE COLUMBIAN AJND DEMOCRAT, BLOOMSBURGr, COLUMBIA COUNTY, PA.
J. K. BlttesVender.,; Ellt0"'
FRIDAY, JANUARY 20, 1880.
, Samuel Ithodcs, tho Democratic
member of tlio Delaware County Hoard
of Auditor.'", ha i of used to npprovo
Uiat portion of tlio County Treasurer's
icport In which the bill of tlio firm of
Vernon & Cooper, publishers of tho

that tho advertisement in the .i-lmfrcan

nnd this is admitted by Senator Cooper's
til in, who published tho report on the
interpretation of tho law which pro
vides that it shall appear in thrco of
the county papera including tho official
organs of tho two political parties.

A friend at court Ls sometimes a
good thing to have. Tho law requires
that tho Mercantile Appraiser shall
certify that the papers asking for pay
wero selected by him to publish tho
list, but tho Auditor General paid tho
bill of tho Republican state chairman
without compliance with the law.
And especially concerning law li
braries, in which it seems to mo a
great revolution and reform might and
should be made. The small, compact
and neat law library is a thing of the
past. Of tho making of law books
thcro is no ond. Subjects arc sub-divided
and largo and expensivo volumes
written upon branches which, a few
years ago, wero sufficiently treated in
a chapter or division of a volume. On
one Binglo subject, that of "Corpora
tions,'' legislation and litigation have
evolved hundreds of volumes, and rail
road reports ate coming to bo a nuis
ance, and a oumberer of the shelves.
And what is still raoro frightful they
aro being produced by tho Courts and
tho reporters by tho dozen a year.
Every largo county in the Stato must
havo its legal jonrnil, and tho weekly
issues aro forced upon tho attention of
the Bar of tho State, and support ve
hemently urged. I do not mean to say
these publications are of no value far
from it. It is the fact of their value
to tho busy practitioner, that causes
tho trouble, for it must bo admitted
that much of tho matter in them is
mere padding. Still they exist and in
most cases give good reason for con
tinuing to exist. And it is to be feared
that instead of diminishing they mav
increase; though the new enterprise of
tlie Uounty Court Kenorts is a step in
the right direction, and may prevent
somo and absorb others.
Tho date of our first reported Su
preme Court case in Dallas is 1754, and
up to 1854, one hundred years, there
were only eujbty-six volumes issued.
From 1854 to 1884, only thirty years,
there are eighty-six more, and these do
not lnclu-io Urant and 1'ennypacker.
And if to theso we add the side re
ports, making several hundred volumes
more, it can be easily seen that we
need not go outside of Pennsylvania
to overwhelm the poor country lawyer
wiiu books, and distract the ludces
with conflicting decisions whioh are
called authorities, and altogether mak
ing confusion wono confounded. But
in addition to all this, the reports from
sister States and of the Supreme Court
oi the United states aro thrust upon
us; and as if thero were not yet
enough, the "American Decisions" bo
gin out in California, aud propose to
come troni too beginning ot the lov
ernment to tho year 1809; and thcro
the "American Keporta becin and
propose to continue for all time to
come," and wo may well repeat tho
agoniziug cry of Solomon, "Of the
making of books there is no end."
But after all, this is only the beuin
mug of sorrows. There are carl loads
of books upon evidence, civil and
criminal, upoe uanKrupicy, upon
Jiiens, upon Atlmavits ot Defense, Mo
chanics' Liens, Saving Funds, Married
Women. Divorce, tho Domestic Re a
lions, and about every other subject
wiiu which uiu courts aro caned upon
it is manliest mat tno monov in
vested in books and book cases is cnor
mous, far beyond that it should bo or
need be, and it is in this matter cspeo
ially, whero revolution and reform
must be made. A few considerations
aud figures will show what could bo
dono and what soon must bo dono.
Thero nro forty members of tho Bar
in Columbia County, and it is safe to
say that there are twenty-fivo complete
pets of thn Reports of our Supreme
Court in thocounty, and also numerous
incomplete ones; together with several
thousand volumes of outsido Reports
and text books of tho law. Including
tho collection in tho Bar otlice io the
Court House, it is safe lo say that tho
law books in Columbia county cost not
less tnan tiitrty thousand dollars; and
many of them aro duplicated, as it
wero, more tlian twenty tunes over
Tho cases nnd shelves for the earn of
theso books cost more than a thousand
dollars. This is a dreadful wasto of
wonoy. Ten thousand dollars would
probably pay for all tho separate works
nnd reports in nil tlio libraries in the
county; and ten dollars a pteco an
nually would keep the library stocked
with nil tlio necessary curreut law liter
ature. If all tho. law libraries iu Blooms
burg wero put into a ioint stock con
cern, with duplicates of the Reports,
and a proper and convenient building
erected for tho purpose, tho tax for law
books, which now runs to hundreds of
dollars a year, would be a mero baga
telle. The capitalist who would erect
such a building would make n profit-
nolo investment, and all parties would
bo benefitted. Take a building iu
winch tliree or lour lawyorsaro tenants
if thero was ono good, warm, weli
lighted room lorn common library, ono-
loiirth us many I ooks as aro now pro
vlded by them would bo enough, and
they would have tho uso and advantage
ot ii large library at small cost.
Fifty volumis of working books
would be all that any lawyer would
need in his ofliee; and ho couM exam
ine his authorities at his good leisure,
at his table in tho common library
room, and with tho use of tivo times ns
many bonks us ho could owu himself.
His stock iu this Library compiuy
would bu valuable, aud could be sold as
now members were desirous lo couie
in and use, for a few hundred dollars,
u library worth thousands. J. G. F.

The Eight Hour Law.
the president declares in its iwvort.
In a recent interview President
Cleveland said, concerning the eight
hour law: "1 believe that the law is
a sound and good ono nnd that it
should bo enforced to tho letter. I
have no information regarding instan
ces of its violation or evasion, but if
such instances nro presented to tno I
will seo thai tho abuso is remedied and
tho full spirit of tho law enforced,
which I understand to be to pay work
men in the government employ for
eight hours' work daily what is paid
outsido of the government employ for
a full day's work. Tho govcrnmonl
cannot afford to set the examplo of
non-enforcement and non-observance
of its own enactments.''
The President further said: "I
appreciate the effect upon tho mechan
ics of tho country of the constantly
increasing use of labor-saving machin
ery and I can think of no more prac
tical relief for the unemployed surplus
labor than tho occupation by it of tho
publio lands. I do not hesitace to say
that I am heartily in favor ot any
feasible plan for tho encouragement
and .issistance, if need be, of prospec
tive American settlers upon the pulic
domain by the General Government."
In this the President expressed somo
very radical views upon tho subject of
tho occupation of vast tracts of public
land by foreign capitalists. The Pres
ident seemed desirous of impressing
upor. his hearer his willingness to heart
ily co-operate with Congress in any
efforts it may mako to elovato the
working class and improve tho social
condition of the bread-winners.

"You know, of course," said a Clin
ton township gentlemen to a Telegram
representative recently,"tbat Miss Rose
Cleveland, tbo J resident a sister, was
a teacher in tho Munoy Semiuary at
"So l'vo heard," said the Telegram
man. "How long ago was that'"
"Abouruen years. -Miss Cleveland
was not over twenty-five years old
when sho came to Munoy and during
her stay there sho became quite popu
lar. To givo you on idea of her dis
position: One prominent lady of
Munoy conceiwd a strong aversion to
Miss Cleveland upon first meeting her.
The latter thereupon determined to
make this particular lady the very best
friend sho had in Muncy. Not only
did she mako this determination, but
she accomplished it, and before sho
left Munoy tho lady in question hold
her in very high regard and had bojomo
her warm and devoted friend.
"Sho 1ms silica paid frequent and ex
tended visits to Miss Cleveland at her
homo at Patent. Among her other
close friends wero Mrs. Patton and
daughlor, of our township, where she
often visited. Shu also visited the
family of Colonel Lilloy, who is n-son-in
law of Mrs. Patton. Sho enjoyed
her visits to these farm houses exceed
ingly and made herself entirely at home.
Sho was very praotical and sensible
and adapted herself perfectly to the
situation wherever she went. At Mrs,
Patton's sho was in tho habit of climb
ing n lnrgo applo trco that stood in tho
yard and sealing liersolf in tho fork of
the trco. There sho would remain for
hours, reading some favorite book. At
this timo sho was familiarly called
'Johnny' Cleveland. She did not for
get her friouds after leaving here,
either, but has kept up correspondence
over since. Letters have been received
from her by these families since she
has been living in tho Whito House.
Sho has also sent them her pictures
and they havo received invitations to
visit her at the capital.
"A lady nt Muncy nttnided ono of
her receptions at tho White House.
Tno hostess promptly recognized her
and said: 'Aro you hero Maiy Don't
go nway, I want lo havo a talk with
"Do you think Rose has much in

"Has shot You can depend upon it
she has. Why ono of her old ftiends

wrote to Miss Cleveland, stating his
desire in that direction, and almost by
return mail ho received a letter convey
ing tho coveted appointment. Oh, yes.
sho has plenty of influence with
"It has been claimed that Miss Clove
land helped write the message; do you
think sho did ?''
"Well, I heard a lady who is well
acquaittd with Miss Cleveland and who
is thoroughly familiar with her literary
style say: 'If the President's sister did
not write three-fourths of his lato mes
sage then I am worse mislnken than
I've over been in my lifobefore.' "
Tho same petili- im-n m-snred 1 lie
Telegram cuti-poi.dent that Miss
Cleveland while with tho Muncy Semi
nary displayed a strength of character,
a self reliance and a degree of literary
ability that attracted attention nt the
time, and those who then becamo ac
quainted with her have not been sur
prised at tho prominence sho has since
attained to, aside from tho distinction
involved iu being tho mistress of the
White House. Tho peoplu about
Muncy aro naturally viry proud nt
having known a lady who is now in
such an exalted position Elmira
THE NATION'S FUTURE.
Governments and nations havo their
origin in a higher than an inherent
power hence, liko individuals, nro
born to die, to live nnd servo their day
and generation then perish. Their
deeds are, and should be, put upon
record for future judgment by succeed
ing generations to profit withal. Liko
individuals, they are subject lo malig
nant convulsions that threaten their ex
istence nt every stage by sudden ami
open rupture, or, afllicted'with diseases
milder in form that may bo overcome
by reform, and prolong thoir existence
to a more nature age. Our country's
hopo la in the rising generation. Since
all tho flood gates of light and knowl
edge incidental to science and ait,
wealth ami renown, civilization and en
terprise have been lifted up, and the
mighty rush of general intelligence has
swept away types and shadows, ignor
ance1 and superstition, and upon tho
surface of the current carries tho drift
wood of vice, immorality and crime in
every channel aud avenuo of liberty
and justice, forming formidable gorges
and obstructions that either menace or
threaten destruction to society at large,
and more especially to society in local
communities. Hence wo said, that in
the rising generation is the hopo of our
country, since totbein will bo submitted
issues moro profound and momentous
in importance, hence, greater responsi
bilities will devolve upon them. Re
formers aro to-day upon the active
arena that belongs, to lutuio genera
tions, preparing tho way by their praise
worthy deeds that will .lead to the
abolishment and exclusion of many
eviis now sancuoneu ana protected by
law. This will bo a necessary result
for tho perpetuation of our free insti
tutions, and more paiticulnrly for
tho protection against tho continual
and unlawful encroachments of evil
upon society. There aie but two
classes that enter into the composition
of society, both of which strugglo for
supremacy and leadership; and lo fur.
ther their causes make uso of all the
power and intluenco they can bring to
hear upon each. Theso two classes
may bo known as tho law loving, or,
law abidiiur, and tho insubordinate.aud
in these two classes aro visibly mani
fest the two spiritual kingdoms tho
"Powers of Righteousness" and the
"Powers of Darkness." Insubordina
tion is duo largely to a lack of exercise
of parental authority which gives rise
to insubordination to still timber au
thority, and which is daily augmenting
both ns to numbers and magnitude.
Aim me nnat issuo will bo tho strug

wise, prompt and energetio action of
tno rising and luture generations.

iho laws in tho luturo will necessarily
beuomo moro speedy nnd effectual in
tho punishment ol crime, or, insubor
dination will be kept at bay only at
tho point of a bayonet. All our cities
aro governed to-day, moro by police
force (t) than by civil law?. On no
count of tho lenity and delay ol tho
laws and punishment of crime, tlio
lawless havo lost all terror for civil
laws. Behold tho chronology of crime

by so many through reformation by
expulsion of many of tho Present oyils
through tho enforcement of compulsory
laws t It is evident to all that a crisis
is approaching which many believo to
culminate in a deadly conflict between
"capital and labor." Of such a result

of Vermont. Ho is tho arch enemj of
uiu juiiiucruuu party, nnu no shaped
this little game while professing great
admiration for tho President's good in
tentions and an anxious desiro for uis
success. Ho took pains to call at the
White Houso at the timo of Vice-Presi
dent Heudrick's death and affected
good will towards Mr. Cleveland by

and he has laid bis plan for entrapping
the President very artfully. Ho would
like aonve all things to convict Mr.
Cleveland of inconsistency as a Civil
Service Reformer and to trip the Ad
ministration. President Cleveland's fnturo course
in the matter cannot be outlined. Ho
has expressed his willingness to fur
nish the Senate with all tho papers on

his appointments, and such documents
havo been sent. But. whether or not
he will agree to Mr. Edmuuds' propos

may be relied upon for knowing his
rights under the Constitution, and
also tho application of the Civil Ten

The Senate has again been debating
tho old Electoral Court problem. Sen
ator Sherman went at length into tho
issues involved, opposing all other
plans nnd offering ono of his own, to
tlio effect that if the two Houses disa
gree, they shall meet in joint conven
tion and elect a President. Other
Presidential candidates besides tho
wily Senator from Ohio, discussed how
the next vote for tho Electoral Col
lege should bo counted. These weie
Evarts, Mr. Hayes' Secretary of State,
and Edmunds "and Hoar, either of
whom is reckoned as an eligible New
England candidate if the other one
can be gotten out of tho way. Four
other Presidential aspirants 'sat in a
grou, silent but alert listeners, turning
occasionally to .1 neighbor and whisp
ering with tho emphasis of a clenched
fist. Theso were Ilawley, Harrison,
AIHsod, and Cullom. The subject evi
dently had a personal interest for each,
although Logan has said recently that
no man can go from tho Senato to the
White Houso nowaday.
The Houso has been discussing Pen
sions among other things. Nearly all
the old pension projects of the Forty
Eighth Congress havo been introduced
in this, whilo there aro some new ones
which outdo in extravagance anything
hitherto pioposed. Thero was a warm
debate on the bill increasing widows'
pensions from 8 to 12. "Represen
tative Reagan, of Texas opposed it.
Said he ; "I do nol expect to defeat
the bill, nor any Pension bill brought
up here, no matter how great an out
rage it may bo upon common sense
and common right. But in the name
of my constituents and tho tax payers
of this country, I protest aginst the in
discriminate giving of pensions to all
men and all women who ask for them.
The purpose of thoso who bring for
ward theso bills is not to benefit the
men or women in question. Their
motive is to buy thoboldier's vote, and
to make the tax-payeis of the country
pay for their political supieniacy.
The Silver Question.
Congressman Brown, ot Bradford' is
very conspicuous in the Pennsylvania
delegation for his attitude on the silver
quoatiou. Last year he was an advo
cato of suspension, but during the
Summer vacation or in tho weeks pre
ceding the announcement of commit
tees his views underwent a change.
Ho announced that he was in favor of
fice and unlimited coinage of the
American metal, and introduced a bill,
of which tho following is tho most in
terestiug section :
"Thai at the option of tho owner of
any silver bullion produced and miued
within the United States, but not else,
wheie, he may deposit tho samo with
tlio Treasurer of tho United States iu
quantities not less than 100 ounces
Troy weight, and receive in exchange
thereof, at tho rato of $100 for every
112 J grains standard silver, silver cer
tificates iu tmius not less than SlOeach
and any multiple thereof correspond,
iug with tho denominations of tho
United Stales notes ; and the bullion
deposited (or or representing tho certi

ceilificates, authorized by tho second
and third sections of this act, shall bo

to tho same extent and for tho bame
put poses that gold certificates nro a
legal tender under existing laws."
Noaily overy one of thu newspapers
in his district havo taken tho ground
that his proposition is wrong, and a

written him protests and advice to
abandon it. The pressure seems to bo
