A NEW FEATCRE. —An important
change has been made by the Legislature
in the granting of letters of administra
tion. Hereafter all executors or parties
applying to the Register for letters of ad
ministration must make an affidavit before
that officer, setting forth as nearly as pos
sible the day and hour of tho decedent's
death, before letters will be granted. It
will be well enough, therefore, for parties
applying for letters of administration lo
bear this fact in iniad and ascertain the
precise hour when death occurred.
— A CORRECTION —We among many
others of the newspaper fraternity were

virtually repealing the S3CO exemption
law of 1849. Such a bill was before tbe

as slated, and as the ; üblicalion may lead
to misapprehAision and difficulty, we

we have not had a Senator for many years . true, that
we are the central county in the distm t . but are the*#
sufficient grounds upon which to accept a man of In
ferior ability. Until wo present a person as well, or
better, qualified than ary other section of the district,
we don't deserve the nomination, and I am con&dent
that Centre County Democrats are patriotic enough
not to desire It.
There la one point that I would esiwn iallr urge uimn '
the Democrats of the County, which In the peat boa
been too little Inflated upon, viz let the County Con
rent lon. not the candidate* select the conferee* The
latter plan her "been tried about frequently enough In
prore it* Inefficiency. We should send men to meet
the other counties who will be the repn-srnUtlve* of
the democracy of the county, and not of a particular
individual,-- men who in raaea M emergency, will
hare power to act for the beat lntereats of the party
We bare sent wwdrn men to conferee meetings too
long for our own good . and, perhaps. If we took some
different plan in this direction, we would not foreier
be complaining of not baring had such and such an
office for yearn. The new plan will be equally fair for
the candidates, aa we could Instruct them if that were
necessary • ai d there can be little doubt that It would
be much fairer for the party at large.
Another matter that I would urge upon th* town
ahlp* is to send their best men as delegates, and not
to load tbern down with instructions. Select good men,
of sound judgment, who have tbo best interests of the
part j at heart, and there will be no occaalon to Instruct
them for every office from Congressman down to Audi
tor. You need have no fears that such men will fall to
do that which will best promote the welfare of the
whole party And unless you do sllow them some free
dom of action, you might as well send wooden men for
all the good they can do. Recent events In the party's
history have, 1 think, fully impressed us with the In
expediency of this wholesale instruction business , snd
it is an open question whether the party would not be
benefitted by amending our rules in this particular
After the third ballot instructions should not b bind
ing , and if the best men were always chosen as dele
gat* there would be no necessity for any instructions,
as the abuse* to which they ore subject for more than
couateroalsnce the benefits accruing from them.
I hope the Democrats of the county will consider
these suggestion*!, and. If they find them well-founded,
act upon them. We have been in power so long that
we are apt to be careless in regard to our internal or
ganization We have relieved the county from the
embarrassments into which it had been plunged by
republican pilferers and plunderers ; now let us spare
no efforts to preserve what we have achieved.

Our Soniitorul District.
MR Kt>n Oß A person from your
township, last week wrote it letter to out
paper, '.He Berivhtcr, in which he advo
cates propositions, in which tunny demo
crats of this taction cannot concur,* al
though soma things he saya are un<|uc*-|
tionnldy true. After speaking of the sit
ttatien and treatiucut of our county in her
former Senatorial relation*, h say*
"We never could get another nontina
tion in the old district, a* the counltet
alonjt the line of the Juniata \alle> com
bitted against us. We are now fortunately i
in a new district, cut ft" troui all our old t
associate*, in wlnch Centre county i> tlie
Central county, not only geographically,
but alto in political Important* wclkm
fore liave a reatonable hope of faring hit
ler in our now district."
In order to appreciate the ludicrcu>ia
of the conclusion which the writer ilrawf
from these premise*, namely, that Mr
Meek should be nominated lor the Senate,
it is necessary to remember who is enti
tled to the blame or credit of making these
districts From time immemorial, prior
to 1804, Centre was connected with Clin
ton, Lycoming and other counties on the
West Branch for .Senatorial purpose* In
order to overslaugh the democratic major
ilies in these counties, the Republican ma
jority in the Legislature of let>4 broke up
these ancient senatorial relation*, by put
ting Lycoming with Cnion and Snyder,
C.inton with Fotter, McKcan, Catueron
and Tioga, and Centre with Blair, Hun
tington, Mitßiti, Juniatta and Ferry,
against the protest of our reprcsctitalix e. C
r Alexander. Ne democrat was respon
sible for this, a* it was done by our etie
mirs in order to swamp the democracy ot
Central Pennsylvania. The result *
not what the republicans expected. John
Wails. John B Beck and A H Dill were
respectively elected senator in the l.ycom
lug district- all democrats. In the unna
tural double district in which we were
placed, our candidates in 1h64, Messrs.
Christy and Walters were elected, but
counted out by the soldier vote. lit I!W7
our candidates, Shugert and Mvlntyre
were elected and returned, but Mr. Sbu
gert was turned out of his seat by a packed
and perjured committee of the Senate. Iu
1870 our candidates Fetrican and Crawford
were elected by such large majorities that
they were not interfered w tth. Those re
sults convinced the republicans that they
could not so gerrymander the state as to
prevent the democrats of the central coun
ties from electing a senator, and they
therefore in the apportionment of 1871 con
ceded us a democratic district.
Knowing that the apportionment would
be made by the legislature elected in the
fall of 1870, our people were anxious to
have an experienced and competent repre
sentative, who would be able to secure us
fair and proper districts. The friends of
Mr Meek urged his nomination on this
ground. Ho had already served two years
in tho House, and his admirers claimed
that he pos-es-cd more ability, tact and
influence than any of hU then competitors
Principally because ot these claims he
was nominated and elected, and if he did
not or could not control the making of our
own senatorial district, his constituents were
deceived a* to his capacity and influence.
He was in the minority it is true, but as the
district was to be democratic, the majority
had but little interest in the quotion of
what counties should compose it, and I
atn told that in such cases the representa
tives of the minority, if they are men of
standing and influence, are permitted to
arrange tho districts concedes! to them lo
suit themselves. Probably trtry one of
Mr. Meek t constituents at that time, de
sired to have Centre county severed from 1
the unnatural, unsatisfactory and unpleas
ant connection in which she had been
placed in 1864. Mr Meet knew that no
aspirant for senatorial honors in the coun-
ty except himself, affilliated with the de
mocracy of the Juniatta Valley, and
therefore that no Centre county candidate
could be nominated in the Senatorial con
ference. unless he himself wa presented
by this county. Acting upon this belief,
disregarding the withes of all his constitu
ents, and looking only to bis own future
advancement, he connected us in a sena
torial district with Huntingdon, Mifflin
and Juniata, throe counties from which
our people unanimously wished to be de
tached. 1 .-ay he formed the district, fur
lam willing to concede the capacity and
influence claimed for him by his fiiends.
Neither do I complaiu that be in this in
stance acted for his own good instead of
representing the interest of his cen-titu
ents. This seems to be natural, and in
iiime degree the common failing of all our
representatives. In accordance with Mr
Meet's plans found in 1871, ho was a can
didate tor Senator last year, and having
no opposition carried th> county unani
mously, but was defeated in conference
by a providential interference. His friend
Gen. James Burns, upon whom he relied
to manipulate the Juniata Valley, wa
in tho early part of the canvass struck
down by paralysis, and being thus inca
pacitated to take tho field in person, his
own county of Miffiin was carried by his
enemy "Honest Joe Waream," who de
feated Meek in conference. Thus was
again illustrated the proposition of anoth
er ;Burns--"thc Ibest laid plans of mice
and men gang alt Kglee."
That Centrttcuunty now occupies a cen
tral and commanding position in demo-i
cratic senatorial and congressional dis
tricts is due to the efforts of our last repre
sentative, Judge Orvis. Ido not think,
however, that he is entitled to much credit
for this, for though he may havo no scna
loiialor cor.gre-.ional aspirations, these
districts were made in connection with
the judicial district, which was undoubt
edly designed to furnish him with a nice
place for the'next ten years. He will bo
lucky if his calculations do not turn to
ashes as Mick's did.
The principal point, however, in the let-
t< r of your citizen, from whicli I, in cum
min with many drinocra's of thin locality,
dis*ent, is contained in the latter part of
the communication. In speaking of Mr.
Meek'* services during the wnr, (not as u
substitute broker) he say*:—"lt i true
