ivrom notes taken by S. N. Walker
Court Reporter, wo give below tho
main parts of Senator Buokalow's ad
dress, delivered at tho Court House,
Danville, on last Saturday ovening
July 10th.
I havo been long of 'he opinion, and
that opinion liaa deepened and strengtn
ened with tho courso of years, that it
is absolutely necessary to introduce in
to tho Government of these United
States, and into the fundamental law
by which that government is created
x few radical and far-reaching changes
of system ; for, with us, as with other
iioveriiments that havo preceded us in
tho history of tho world, In course of
time various forma of abuso have arisen
to trouble and vex us, and it is neces
sary that wo should erect guards against
them, take tho -amplest securities
against their increase and against their
deleterious operation.
Under our present system, wo chooso
tho creat omcer of tho government
tho president, through a form of elect
oral colleges, chosen and assembling
in each state, tho number of members
in a college being equal to tho total
of representatives and senators for tho
state, upon ineir meeting in uiu Hum
of Government, each college in its own
state, they voto by ballot for candidates
for president and viccpresident, and re
port their votes to wasningion, wnero
they are counted.
This machinery, which was intended
by those who framed tho constitution
of tho United States to be a salutary
and effectual arrangement for the
choico of a president by men of great
wisdom And merit in each state, lias
utterly failed of its original purpose.
Tho choice of electors, the meeting of
electors, their voting in what arc call
cd colleges all this has become mero
matter of form ; lor they, in every in
stance, are expected to support panic
nlar candidates. The people do not
use this form, except by compulsion
because such is the only legal method
of expressing their opinions in a presb
dential election. They intend to vote
for A or B. or C for president of tho
United States : they are obliged to ex
press themselves through this cumbrous
useless, and in some respects danger
ous, arrangement. Wo are going on
under a system, therefore, originally
intended to be effectual, but which has
becomo mero form, and winch, m cer
tain posibuities of tho future, may
becomo possitivcly disastrous ; for, in
a closo presidential election, if wo con
ceivo that tho electors in any state
should bo corrupt, then, voting as
they do by secret ballot thoy could dc
leat tho will or tno people with mi
punity and oven without detection
But it is suflicient for the present to
say that all this oonstilutional machin
cry is useless, and ought to bo abolish
ed for that reason alone.
What may bo proposed as a Biibsti
tuto for it T This question may be
answered in few words. Allow tho
people to voto dirpctly, each man for
himself, for tho candidate of bis choice
for tho ofhco of president, and provido
that tho votes in each state shall be re
ported to the seat of government in the
state precisely as tne votes ror gover
nor aro reported, and that the governor,
the secretary of tho comnionwealtl:
and tho chief justice of tho state shall
receivo tho returns, and assign to eacu
candidate a proportion or share of th
electoral voles of tho state, exactly in
ratio to tho popular voto which has
been civen him ; tho result of which
will bo that in each state each cautl
dato for tho presidential oftico will get
on electoral voto oxactly nccordmg
public opinion in tho btate, and tho w
of the peoplo will be transmitted
Washington, and will there be duly
What aro tho special advantages
this change of system T I will mention
but one, although there are several.
is the most certain and elfectual pla
ever doviscd to render presidential
elections both fair and pure, and
good repute. Now a fraudulent, cor
rupt, or otherwise sinister vote of fivo
or ten thousand in Pennsylvania or
Now York may control tho whole elect
oral voto of tho stato at any election
it may bo tho "balanco-of-power' vote,
and deternuno tho result, lako our
own state. Suppose flint at tho next
presidential election each party has
about '100,000 votes, and can poll them
nn J tako the necessary steps for that
purpose. About an equal number aro
ranged undor each ol tho groat banners
of political party, and thoro is a corrupt
or influenced voto in the groat centers
of population and of human life of but
fivo or ten thousand, what is the result?
That tho thirty electoral votes of Penn
sylvania for president raav be trans
furred from ono party and given to the
other, making a ohango of sixty elect
oral votes in tho choico of president,
and you can't help it. Four hundred
thousand men may struggle during
a long election campaign! exerting
themselves to the utmost, expending
their means, timo and labor, their ut
most energies honestly in behalf of
what they believe to bo principles of
importance to tho government of tho
country, and in behalf of a candidate
fit for tho high ollico for which they
support him i and yet nil their labor,
oxertion and patriotism may bo wasted
becauso a corrupt or tnauaeod voto in
Philadelphia or Pittsburg is cast into
tho opposing scale, by which thoy will
not only loso their votes in tho elect
ion, but by which all their just share
of power will bo transferred to tho
other side. Say that tho opposito
party was entitled to fifteen electoral
voles, becauso they had nbout half tho
votes in tho state, that tho party virtu-1
,lly disfranchised was entitled to tno
other fifteen, becauso thoy had tho
other half. Do you not sco that, under
our present system, these fivo or ton
thousand bad votes, bought up In tho
corruption-market, or otherwieo obtain
ed by illegitimato means, control tho
voto of tho slalo mid Uislrancluso halt
f tho honest voters therein 1
You may preach ncainst electoral cor
ruption unlit you becomo blind and gray
headed, and you wfdi't Btop it t It is in
creasing in this country ,and it must in
crease ns ths country grows richer, as
tho number of offices to bo filled shall
becomo greater. Preaohing against
it will not accomplish your purpose ;
you may check tho evil a little, but
you cannot destroy lt,nj long ns human
naturo rcmaius what it is, and men
oven in our Btngo of civilization can
be illegitimately influenced in public
elections. You know all this very
But, by allowing each voter to voto
for his candidate for president, with
tho certainty that hid voto will bo re
ported as votes for govornors aro re
ported, and that his candidalo will get
us complete snare or the electoral vote
f tho Btate, iu proportion to tho popu
lar voto civen him, what is tho result 1
That is what I propose to point out to
you. Uuservo, U you divido tho popu-
ar voto of this state,the 800,000 votes,
by 30, you havo about 27,000 popular
votes for ono electoral vote, that would
be what is called "the ratio," 27,000.
It would now require about that rum
her of votes in Pennsylvania, under
this plan, to secure ono electoral voto
at Washington, sent there from tho re
turns at Harrisburg ; mid, as our popu
lation increases, tho ratio for an elect
or will incroaso also. At no remoto
lay it will reach forty or fifty thous
and j so that, when your high officers
of stato tho govornor, tho secretary
of tho commonwealth and tho chief
justice come to count tho popular
vote, and to assign to each candidate
his share of tho electoral vote,thoy will
givo an electoral voto to each candi
date for overy forty or fifty thousand
votes ho has received from tho people.
Do you not perceive that a corrupt
voto in rinladclphia ot five or ton, or
even fifteen or twenty thousand, would
not mako an atom of chango in the
result 1 Twenty thousand would bo
but one-half an electoral ratio, and
would not control ono vote, and of
course any ordinary corrupt voto of
ten or fifteen thousand would amount
to nothing upon tho result. But sup
poso you havo forty or fifty thousand
corrupt voters, thoy could control tho
casting of only ono electoral voto in
stead of thirty, as at present. Do you
not see that the motive lor corrupting
elections would bo cut out of our sys
tem, would no longer largely exist in
it 1 Do you not sco that men would
not spend money to buy votes when
those votes were not to attect tho
geucral result ? Thei'o would be no
motivo for corruption, and we would
get purity in our great elections, and
honesty and lair play. At present, tho
party that rn&orts to improper intlneno-
cs is tho ono likeliest to win. It is
like gambling, and tho party that wins
sweeps the board.
Under tho honest and fair system
that I have stated, each party would
get lust what it is entitled to. I say,
therefore,that this ohango would reach
down to the very foundations of our
system, would eradicate tho motivo for
corruption and illegitimate influence
winch attend our great elections, would
secure to the people equal rights in
their elections, and the ultimate result
would be an honest and pure govern
ment, which is tho legitimate object
tor which elections aro held.
In conclusion upon this point I will
mention ono fact : You remember
that, in 1870, in tho election canvass
between Hayes and J llden, there was
great excitement. I am not ironic to
discuss what happened the merits of
the returning-board in Louisiana, nor
tno action ot Uongress I am on
another point. I then wrote a propo
sition for ohanging the constitution of
the U mtcd states in this particular
putltmg into form tho ideas 1 havo
mentioned to-night and sent it to Mr,
JMaigb ot lork county, a gentleman
of great ability and pcfect integrity
or nurnnso who 1 lion m I in llnnsn
ot Hcprescntativcs. Ife presented it
and it was reierrcd to a select com
mitte, and was fully considered and
agreed to by tho committed : it was
then by that committee reported back
to tho House, accompanied by a writ
ten report which explained tho propo
sition and put it upon the grounds
which no one, I yenturo to say, can
ever answer. But, shortly afterwards
my friend Mr. Maish, under tho prin
ciple of rotation iu office, that soino of
us valuo so highly, was left at homo
and his place was supplied by another,
Tho proposition sleeps, but it may bo
wakened to life. When wo havo
another terrible danger over a prosl
dential election, peoplo will wako to
the necessity of amendment. But
mink it proper now, in time of peace
and quiet, when the passions aro not
up, when no individual interests aro iu
volved, when parly passion is silent,
that this plan shall bo considered and
action taken upon it by Conirress. and
the subject submitted to tho peoplo of
(ho states. If it is so submitted it will
bo certainly and promptly adopted.
Wo resido in a congressional dis
trict of very peculiar formation. It
extends from tho lino of Lycoming to
tho Lehigh valley, and boyond it to
the Delaware river, and up that river
ns far as Port Jervis on tho Now York
and Erie railroad. You pick up Montou
then you go cast, and pick up Colum
bin ; then comes a tier ot township
across western i,uzcrnp, all tho way
down to tho ocnuyikiii border, by
which you get a uuio comer ot oon
ncctioii across into the Lehigh valley
you then pass east, picking up n tier
of townships and boroughs through tho
south end of Luzerne and tho Hazel
ton country, until vou roach tho line
of Lackawanna ; you thon drop down
the Lehiuh river and pick up Carbon
county, pass across to tho Delaware
river, co un it. as I have already men
tioned taking tho counties of Monroo
and Piko ! and then you como back
over tho Pocono mountain into tho
Lackawanna valley ; run down, and
pick up some townships and boroughs,
until you como to tho city of Scrautou
mid then you hook out tho old twolttl
ward of 'that city and that makos
your district. That is, tho way tho
district was made, in 1873, by pickini;
out and piling up together nil tho
Democratio majorities that could bo
found iu this section of Pennsylvania
thus giving us some eight or nine
thousand majority ; ho that the Demo
cratlo party on ono occasion, could ru
three candidates against ono Kemibll
can, and yet elect ono of their men to
Congress. That was tho caso when
Mr. Klotz was first elected. Captain
Brockway ran ns nu independent candi
date. Mr. Orvis ran ns tho Greenback
candidate, but most of his voto was
from tho Democratio party, and Mr,
Klbtg rnu na tho regular oandldoto t
nnd, though tho voto of tho majority
party of tho disliict was distributed
nmong theso threo candidates, tho low
est of tho threo getting nearly two
thousand votes, tho regular nominco
was elected, having a clear majority
over Genoral Albright, tho Republican
oaudidate. In this district, tho Repub
lican voto was viitually obliterated by
tho action of tho Republican legisla
ture which passed tho bill. Tho legls
lallvo majority said to their political
frionds In this district, "You must sub
mit to oxtliiL'uishinont for ten vears,
you can elect nobody, but wo will tako
all tho Democratio majorities iu Piko,
Monroe, Carbon, Luzerne, Columbia
and Montour, and pile them into one
huge mass, ami then thoy won t do
nny mischief in hciahborina districts."
That is tho way tho bill was made.
was a vory unnatural district i very
little social intercourse between the
peoplo of tho eastern end of tho dis
trict nnd those of tho western end t
very little of business relations be
tween tho two sections almost as
widely Heparntcd as if the main chain
of tho Allegheny mountains lay be
tween as a lino of division.
What has been tho history of this dis
tricts For tho first four voars a repre
sentative iu Congress was chosen from
tno Lackawanna division of tho district;
for tho second four years, tho represen
tative was chosen from Carbon county;
for tho third four years, tho representa
tive has been chosen lrom tho county
of Monroe ; so that for twelve years
the conuressman has been taken fiom
the eastern sldo of the district. Tho
constitutional duration of tho appor
tionment would bo ten years ; but, as
tho legislature and tho govornor did
not agree alout n new bill of appor
tionment, the old bill continues, and an
other election must bo held under it be
fore a new apportionment can bo made.
.Now let us co back into a Iittlo local
history of our own. Tho county of
Columbia was erected at tho sessions
of 1812-13 ; it has, therefore, had an ex
istence about seventy-four years. Mon
tour county was cut from it iu 1850,
but has always remained with it since
that timo in tho samo congressional
district. From tho year 1812 down to
the present time, tho county of Colum
bia within its present territory, has
furnished a representative in Congress
for barely two years. Dr. Leib, of
Catawissa, was elected, lor a Binglc
term, in 1814, Ho was beaten for re
election by tho voto of Luzerne county.
This is tho record of Columbia county
as now bounded. Montour county had
Dr. Pelriken as representative in Con
gress ; that is tho territory now com
posing Montour it was not then erect
ed into a separate counts was repre
sented by Dr. Petrikeu from 1831 to
1S38. And again, in 185G, John G.
Montgomery, a distinguished member
of your bar,. and a reputable and able
citizen ot Danville, was olecled to Con
gress. Ho died before his service be
gan, of tho National-Hotel disease, at
Washington, and Mr. Leidy of your
town was chosen to fill out his two
years' term. Since that timo when wo
wero connected with Bradford, the
election of Strawbridge, & Republican
congressman, took place ; which with
n,.mr,.rn.tu. T hnlinvn ,lno nnl .,,
This is tho record.
Neither county has been locally rep
resented during tho last twclvo years
while we havo been with tho counties
on tho Lehigh and the Delaware ; and
before that tune, throughout this long
period sinco Columbia county was
ercctod three-fourths of a century sho
has had JJr. Leib ono term of two years.
and tho town of Danville a Democrat
ic representative barely six years. This
is the record ot tho past.

tative to Congress, what was dono in
Columbia county T Ho had served the
waiter beforo in tho llouso nt Harris
burg, while I was in tho Senate. I
knew him to be a man of thorugh in
tegrity ; his whole course while ho was
a member of tho house was without re
proach, his record was clear and able.
Although there wero between our two
counties remains of old local feeling
what did wo in Columbia do t Get up
a candidato thoro against Montour ?
Allow anybody to como out iu Colum
bia as a candidato against that fit man?
No, wo wont to work among our
people, and said to them ''This man is
to be trusted ; ho is fit for tho placo ;
he will do himself honor aud will do
you honor, if you agree to send him to
Congress.'' Accordingly, upon consid
eration, our peoplo joined Montour,
united our strength with hers, and wo
went np to a conferenco with Luzerne
and Wyoming united. What was the
result! Mr. Montgomery was nomi
nated and elected. Afterward, when
his death opened a vacancy, Mr. Leidy
was naineu to succcca mm ; tno same
united action was repeated, and ho was
elected and served. Wo havo not had
any nomination in this congressional
district for twelve years, because our
two counties havo been separate, pull
ing different ways ; and wo shall get
no reprcsontatifo for tho remaining
two years that wo aro to continue iu
this district, if our countios aro apart
in action. Precisely tho same causes
that iiavo produced results in six no mi
nations arc sufficient to produce tho
samo result in tho seventh. If our two
counties go together, united, and say
to our urcturen oi tue oast "vo aro

it is high timo that some semblance of

General, Major Norris, is getting into
hot water. At Gettysburg tho other
day ho opened his campaign witli a
furious assault upon 'tho Third Army
Corps nnd upon General Sickles, who
with his friends has replied in person
giving Norris tho lie. Thoy go furth

taken as to alleged facts related before
ho mado his speech, but said it was too
lato to avoid the error, as his address
was in print. Of courso tho old sold
iers aro intensely angered nt him, not
only for his misrepresentation but for
tho ill tasto he displayed in turning tho
occasion to ono of controversy and al
tercation. Tho reception given to Geit
oral Sickles and the increased affection
shown him sinco the Norris attack, go
further to prove with what disfavor it
has been received. Tho Republican
politicians are apprehensive that Norris
will continue to make n fool of him

"Tlio pcoplo'slaw is habitually violated,
evaded nnd defied."
"No frc-o government can long exist
wbero tho organic law of tho Stato
is habitually defied.''
"Tho Constitution of 187-1 is not com
munistic. It assails no right of
property, nor does it givo counte
nance to principles which would
degrade or demoralize society.
'Tlio Constitution cannot wholly cn
forco itself, nor could it provide
detailed regulations for its en
forcement; these must bo provided
by tho Legislature."
"In the selection of members of tho
Legislature at tho next general
election, select only such as are
pledged to tho long-neglected
work of Constitutional enforce
ment." From address of Consti
tutional Committte, 18HC.
Tho people, through the ballot box,
should upon all laws, sumptuary
or organic, have an opportunity to
express their opinion, before be
coming a settled law. Let ail bo
