Dill and Cnrtin at Millheim, Friday
night. Turn out taxpayers and hear

The extreme rapidity with which the
expenses of the state government have
grown under republican administrations
is shown bv the following figures drawn
from official sources. In three years of
Gov. Packer's administration the total
expenditures of the state government
were $1,209,840.17. in the last term of
Gov. Cnrtin's administration, including
the years 1364, 1365 and 1366, these ex
penditures were $1,385,157.83, including
some extraordinary expenses of the war.
Iu the last three years of Gov. Geary 's
administration the expenditures of gov
ernment leaped op to $2,806,305.07. Gov.
Hartranft's first term cost $3,279,315.28.
In Gov. HartranfVs last term these ex
penditures have swollen to the enor
mous sum of $3,816,316.7 ft. Unless this
extravagance is arrested by the over
throw of the ring in control of the state
government where will it end?
The democratic party has ever been
the party of economy. The record will
always show this. Expenditures have
been ran up by the republican party,
and what reduction has been accom
plished is the work of the democracy.
Appropriations made by three yesrs
of democratic as compared with the pre
ceding three years of republican ascend
ancy in congress, via.:
Estimates J 176.226,348.
At Pasted M0u5e ...... 147,687,739.
At Patted Senate 161,862;268.
Uws 167,200,633.
$6,000,000 additional estimates were sent in
not included in the regular book from the
It appears by these figure* thalthe dem
ooratic house appropriated twenty-eight
and a half milliens less than the estimates;
thst the republican senate raised the bills
of the house more than fourteen millions,
and that the law* as passed exceeded the
house grants by nearly ten millions. In
the last congress, when the house com
menced the work of reducing the public
expenditures, the senate struck off ten
millions from the budget of economy, and
new they have repeated the act ef hostili
ty to the same extent. These are the nak
ed facts.
"Elect a Democratic Congress and you
shoulder a debt of ftiuO,ooo,oo0 —for pro
property taken from the rebels during
the war —on the people. Elect a
publican Congress and vou will tide over
the threatened danger.'
We find tbe foregoing stuffin nearly
all our Radical exchangee. The editors
in question are either very ignorant, or
dishonest, and assume that their read
ers are just as stupid as they are, which
is not very complimentary to either par
ty. Besides.-Tbe allegation is a naked
lie, and if any one was foolish enough
to attempt a thing of the kind, the Con
stitution would interpose and defeat the
measure. The XlXth Amendment to
that instrument reads as follows:
Sec. IV. The validity of the public
debt of the United States authorized by
law, including debts incurred for the
payment of pensions and bounties for
service in suppressing insurrection or
rebellion, shall not be questioned, but
neither tne United States nor any State
shall assume or pay any debt or obliga
tion incurred in aid of insurrection or
rebellion against tbe United States, or
claim for the loss or emancipation of
eoy slave, but all such debts, obligations
and claimß shall be held illegal and
Sec. V. The Congress shall have
Ciwer to enforce, by appropriate Legis
tion, the provisions of this article.
It looks as though "the rebel debt,"
and a few bloody shirts, was all the
stock that the Radicals have invested in
this campaign. This is a mighty cheap
platform for a high toned moral idea
party to stand upon.

Under this Vend the Philadelphia
Times lias an article which expresses
our sentiment* and which will do for
Centre county democrats to read. The
practice of letting candidates select their
own conferees, is one that leads to
abuses, in nine cases out of ten the can
didate vfants to select his conferees so
ho can control them for corrupt purpos
es, sell them out to the highest bidder.
The proper way—and the duty of the
Co. Convention —is toclect the eon forces
and leave it to their discretion ss to
who should be nominated for congress
or senator, after following their instruc
tion* to the line where instructions
should he no longer binding and a nom
ination made for the beat interests of
the party instead of balloting for weeks
in the Interests of an individual.
The Time* Mrs: t >ne of tho | roll tic
evil* of our prwrnt primary political
system in all parties, is the now com
mon custom of naming a candidate for
a reaponsible district office,ami allots nig
him to select his own conferee*. In 'hs
many struggles for the important posi
tions of Congvsssmcn and Senator in
districts embracing two or more coun
ties, the rule is for every county to otlcr
a candidate, who selects his conferee*
from the circle of his personal followers
and then goes into the political market
to get the best possible price for his
men. We hare known unimportant
men in unimportant A>untie* to crowd
themselves forward as candidate* for
Congress at every Congressional H
tion for rears, get possession of the con
ferees and regularly trade them ort for
post offices, revenue offices or places for
themselves in the document room at
thecapitol. So common ha* this cus
tom become that it has demoralised both
parties fearfully in many sections of the
State. It ha* often effected by potty,
shamefhl barter, making the very worst
or the least desired nominations, and
many local defeats of the majority part>
have hoc?) the fruits of the disgraceful
system. It denies to a political party all
voice iu the selection of it* candidate*,
and invite* hummer* to enter contests
when good men do not offer and when
counties have no jnst claims, merely to
trade themselves into a little prominence
or wl! out their power for so much cash.
At a recent Democratic conference in
the Westmoreland district, ;o adjourn
ment was asked for and enforced be
muse Mr. Wise, one of the candidates,
msisted t,iat ccmU not attend, and
since then Wis*, of Greend, Doyle, of
Fayette, and Lomiaoo, wf Westmorelal!'
the rival candidates, are aco#pm-i fis the
managers the confused conference
that has been meeting and adjourning
for a month just. Instead of the party
selecting comjctent and faithful rej>re
sentative men to vote for the choice of
their county and then exercise a sound
discretion when their choice falls, it is
I understood in these later days that .only
j the candidate is the party to ho consult
! t-d. while his conferees must subordi
j nate themselves to his whims or cuj>idi
: ty. It is high time that all parties took
a manly stand to arrest the growing
evil. It would Tastly impair the power
of adventurers in politics, and majority
I parties would save themselves from
[ many just defeats thereby.
There seems to be an unusually strong
desire on the part of leading democrats
—we may say of all the leading demo
crats—in and outside this congressional
district, to have Gov. Curtin receive the
democratic nomination for congress, and
his friends in this district, and especially
in this county, in response to that de
sire, arc now urging the governor's nom
ination and it seems to meet with a
hearty endorsement from the rank and
file of the democracy everywhere; as it
would in all probability bring to the
support of the democratic ticket the
liberal republican vote.
Gov. Cnrtin has been acting with the
democratic party for six years already—
since his return from Russia. He re
signed one of the highest and most
honorable positions in the gift of Presi
dent Grant —minister to Russia, a first
class mission. The republican party
was in full possession of the government
when Gov.Curtin resigned and he came
home to take the Wtutnp for Bnckalew
and thesnccess of the democratic party,
which was then in a minority. This
course of Gov. Curtin can be taken as
the best evidence of his sincerity—leav
ing a party in power because of its
corruption, and which lent him a high
position, and resigning his place in
order that he might do battle in the
democratic party against the corruptions
of the Grant administration and of the
Cameron ring which was disgracing and
plundering our state. Where is there
another man, in the history of parties
in this country, who has made such a
sacrifice of high position and party for
such reasons as actuated Gov. Curtin in
the step he took ? There is none on re
cord. Gov. Curtin is an acquisition
to the democratic ranks worth having
and deeply regretted by the repnblicans
who would gladly have retained him in
one of the chief places in order to keep
him. But there was a higher duty, and
he followed the dictates of it. A thrill
of joy went through every democrat in
the county when it was announced that
the great war governor, Andrew G. Cur
tin, had turned upon the corruptions of
his party and found that to purify the
government he would have to take his
stand in the democratic ranks. Every
democrat bid him welcome then. He
has been with us since, voting our ticket
all the time, and speaking for our cause
and the cause of an oppressed and plun
dered people.
When such old and tried democrat* as
Gov. Bigler, H. L. Dieffenbach, Chair
man Hpeer, and many other democratic
leaders of the state, advise the nomina
tion ofGov. Curtin for congress, it is ad
vice that deserves respectful attention,
and we may add, safe to follow. These
men seek only the success of the party
and the good of the country— and we
know that many of them regard the
nominatien ofGov. Curtin as one of the
potent agencies to be used in securing
the success of the state ticket. No good
democrat will question their motives.
We know also that the candidates on Iho
democratic state ticket, have exprcused
their opinion and wish for Ourtin's nomi
We do not deem it necessary to offer
any advice here, and give the above
that democrats may fairly understand
the movement in favor of Gov. Curtin
and why it meets with so much favor.

have tUo welfare of the party gt heart be
fore casting tboir ballots on Saturday,
In thr flr.t place, the nomination of a
Coiißreaaman in thia district tor the pre,
rnt Year u a matter of more than ordinary
importance. It is the district In which our
candidate for tiovernor resides, and he
wilt, in a mea.ure, lie losponsibte (or the
character of the nominee. If a weak man
is nominated, he will weaken the Slate
ticket in the rery section where it should
be strongest. On the other hand, if the
strongest man is nominated, one whose
na'fie I, familiar throughout the length
and bu'adth of the Uut ar.d a tynojiyqi
for ability, integrity and liojie-ty, nu one
can estimate the strength it will clvo to
the State ticket, nut only here but in other
parts of the State Thi would be un
doubPdly the effect of nominating uoh
a man a> Ex Gov. Curtin. There is no
name in the district better known through
out the I'ouiMOutottaUli, popular or
that would be better received in all sec
tions. Secondly 11 is nomination would
be singularly exjedient and popular this
war above all others,— not only with Dem
ocrat- but also with the anti-Cameron Re
publican- The contest this year is one
for tho ovynatoi* "(theCameron dynasty,
and any actiou ve can take jabich will
convince those Republicans who are whal
ing under the Cameron yoke, that we are
sincere in our attempt to exterminate this
dynasty, will inducu thU elaqinot to join

We do not think there is a man named for
the position, outside of our own county,
who would stand in the way of his nomi
nation. They are all truly patriotic Dem
ocrats. and would not hesitate for a mo
ment to sacrifice their own personal inter
ests Cur tho welfare of the parly. Fourtli
! !y: ilis nomination would reflect boner
und credit upon tho district. IV# l'enn
-ylvanians have a mistaken i4.i that ey
ery official position must be uonceJeJ to
1 the men who run with the machine, who
make thom-clves the party workers, and
that no one is entitled to any consideration
until this clas is provided for. Not so in
New England or the South. The ftirincr
i* represented in our national council by
her Blames, and KJmunds, ksr Dawes,
lloars, Butlers, and Eaton*, and lha iauar
by her Lamars, Stephens, Gordons and
Hills,—names familiar as hou*ehold words
throughout the entire land. Both lections
send their ablest and best men to repre
sent tiicm, and keep them there during
good behavior. The result is that they ex
ext an influence upon and shape the legis
'ation of the nation. Now are we willing
to abandon our mistaken idea and to fol
low their example? If so, wo have the
opportunity. Gov. Ci'RTis's nomination
will be applauded everywhere. If elected
ho will at once become a leader in Con
gress, he will command respect and exert
nn influence for his constituents such ns no
other man can. tVo will confer littla or
no honor upon him thai he does not al
ready possess, but he will honor us.
Such are a few of tho consideration*
which should govern us in our action on
this subject on Saturday next. True, it
will be urged CURTIS has not always been
a Democrat, I care not for that. He is a
good, sound Democrat to-day, as good as
any of us. 110 is in favor of the honest
and economical administration of affairs,
outspoken in his condemnation of the late
electoral fraud, opposed to rings, lobbyists
and jobbers of every ilk, anxious to bury
all animosity existing between tho North
and South and has done more toward this
end than possibly any other man in our
Commonwealth, and is an inveterate foe
of tho Cameron dynasty—this is Democra
cy enough lor me, and for you fellow vo
ters, and for every one except those who
are continually asking, importuning and
domanding offices, and who, like the camp
sutlers, appear to follow the Democratic
party more for the sako of the spoils to bo
gathered than from any patriotic motives.
Besides there are thousands in our ranks
to-day, battling manfully for the over
throw of corruption and peculation, who
aro no better Democrats than Gov. Curtin,
and thousands more ready to come if we
only give them some such ovidence as his
nomination that they will be wolcomo, and
that we are sincere in our declarations.
With CURTIS as our nominee for Congress
and DILL for Governor, victory will be as
sured in tho State. Democrats, of Centro
the responsibility icsls upon you I See
tbatyou discharge it manfully, and in such
away ns will redound to tho best interest*
of the /nirfy atui nation, regardless of tho
claims or fate of individuals. •

two great regulators, the north and

than tho Mediterranean, causing a cur

The pleasing picture of the lowa he

down a pond in a beautiful itllie boat,
was the sweetest flsh story ever clipped ]
with an exchange editor's sheara. But,
who shall say that the ingenuity of the
local chronicler has got to the end cf it*
tether and devised the gWMtret possible
fish story? Here is tho Whitehall
Times, for instance, with a romance of
tho quoon of the speckled beauties. A
man has an artificial trout pond with at
least 3,iWo fish, each weighing from half,
a pound to two pound*, more or less.
He also has a little girl, five years old,!
who has succeeded the flah;
so that she can go to the edge of the!
pond and with a handful of crums feed
them from her chubby hand. They
have learned to jump out of the water
and snatch worms from her fingcra.and
they au extremely fond of their little
mistress. One day ah# lojt her balance;
and pitched headlong into thp water,
where it was deep, She says that when 1
she went "way down" she called loatily[
for help. Her cries quickly attracted 1
her parents, and they were horrified at
seeing the little girl floating upon the
surface of the pond. The father rushed
to the water's edyc end reached out for
his pet, and as ho raised hv* from the
water a perfect solid mass of trout w**
found beneath her. These faithful sub
jects of the little queen, as she fell quick
ly gathered beneath her and thus show
ed their love for their mistress by bear
ing up her body until aid arrived, thus
preventing her from meeting a watery
grave, 'lisa beautiful tale, but the
