Mr. Gephart, one of our nominees for
Assembly, and chairman of the Dem.
Co. Committee, is managing an active
campaign against the wiles of Cameron
in this county. The Cameron influence
is now directed against Mr. Gephart, in
order to defeat him and secure one vote
at least from the county for Cameron in
the legislature. It has been ascertained
that Cameron has the aid of a few pre
tended democrats, bribed Jto work for
the defeat of Curtin and our legislative
nominees, especially Mr. Gephart.
Democrats will understand the impor
tance of electing both our members
Gephart and Murray, and the entire
ticket While Mr. Gephart is giving
his attention to his duties as Chairman
the rank and file must be all the more
vigilant and see that his vote is a big
one. He is doing great service to the
party In his present position, and de
serves to have one of the largest majori*
ties for it

month before he was named for Con
gress, never voted your ticket in his life
and we doubt whether he will vote for

man, and after the election yon will find
this out, if not sooner. Beware of any
man who is supported by the Camerons
—their enmity is preferable to their
friendship! Rebuke those who would
betrav vou and vote for Curtin!

Charley M'Cormick, who is an inde
pendent candidate for president judge
afler having promised to abide by the
decision of the democratic convention
(but didn't) is not doing himself any
credit at all by his attacks upon Judge
Mayer. He will not gain a single vote,
and the only tendency his warfare will
have, will be to lessen him in the esti
mation of many who were his friends.
The people know Judge Mayer too well
to be mislead by M'Cormick's newspa
per articles. They have watched Judge
Mayer's course upon tbe bench for ten
years, and have come to the firm con
clusion that he has worn the judicial
ermine unsullied in all that time, and
that so long as he remains upon the
bench their rights and property, as well
as their lives are in safe hands. It does
not become one who seeks a place upon
the bench, to pursue the course that
Mr. M'Cormick is taking and traducing
a man who is held in so high esteem as
Judge Mayer, simply to get his place.
The people will give their disapproval

OoTcriior Curtin ou tbe Store
"It has come to my knowledge that
"in some parts of the State a system
"exists of paying the wages of work
"men and laborers, not in money
"but in orders on store keepers for
"merchandise and other "articles.
"This system, by preventing all com
"petition, leaves the men to the uncon
"trolled discretion of the store-keep
"crs. It is a system most unwise and
''unjust, and it affects classes of useful
"citizens, who, as they live by the pro
"feeds of their daily labor, have not
"adequate means to resist it. I have
"no doubt that most of the difficulties
"which occasionaly occur between em
"ployert and tbeir workmen are due
"to the prevalence of this system.
"That every man, for a day'a labor,
"should receive a fair day's wages, is
"but the dictate of common hoDeety ;
"and while it would be most unwise
"for the State to interfere at all with
"the rate of wages, it is in my judg
ement incumbent on her to protect
"her laboring population by requiring
"that whatever may be the wages
"stipulated, they shall be BO paid thai
"recipient may purchase necessaries
"for himself and his family, whore
''they can be had best and cheapest.
"I do most earnestly recommend this

The Lewistown Democrat puts Curtin's
majority in Mifflin at 350.
In 1870 Meek advocated the nomina

President; and asserted that he knew
Curlin was as good a democrat as there
was in the country. Why does he uot

who haa always heretofore been identic

cast every ballot he ever voted for its

joined the Nationals for the purpose of
seeking office. Again on the one hand,
you have a man who has always been
opposed to and waged war with the
Cameron dynasty, and in order to com
pass whose defeat that family will leave
no stone unturned on the other, you
have a man who has always been iu
hearty acoorfl with that family,and who
is to-day supported and bolstered up by
Cameron's lieutenants and Cameron's
funds. This is the (juration you must
decide. And yet there are democrats
who would urge you to join hands with

suggestion should be booted with scorn.

by ♦);!), Wallace and Speer, or for Yo

election is urged by Cameron, quay Hip

Can I>emocrats expect any benefit from
such a combination? Certainly not.
Read what the Lewistown Sentinal, a
jtajter formerly opposed to Curtin has to
say upon this subject. It says:
"The order has come here from Don
Cameron's committee. Recorder Quay,
chairman, thai 'Republicans' must
fall into line and support Yocum for
Congress. The guarantee is given that
he w ill be 'all right aAer the- election, 1 '
which means that he intends to fool the
Greenbacken aAer he gets their votes.
'Curtin's defeat,' says this order 'must

There Democrats and Greenbackera is
the command sent forth from the Came
ron headquarters. Are you ready to be
made the dupes of the Winnebago tribe
—to be sold out body and soul to the
reigning clan who have been oppressing
the tax-payers of our Commonwealth
for more than twenty years, and bring*
ing us into contempt and disgrace
throughout the length and breadth of
the land? If not, arise in your might
and squelch those who would betrsy
you, and who, no doubt, in case of sue
cess expect, if they have not already,
their reward. Cameron's support in itself
should be sufficient to alienate all who
are battling against the "powers Hiat
be." In this contest, Democrats, Green
backers and anti-Cameron republicans
have all a common cause. Why not
join hands, and give not only Cameron,
but those who are endeavoring to sell
out both the Greenback and Democratic
organisations to him, such a crushing
defeat that they can never recover from
the blow? Down with Cameron-Green

Democrats, the Reporter says now
what the Wathman said in 1872: Give
Curtin every vote; the Camerons are
trying to defeat him; he should sun
ahead of the ticket on that account; the
republicans would glory in his defeat,
therefore it is the duty of every good
democrat to work all the harder for him.
Such and much more, was tbe argument
of the Watchman in 1872 in favor of Cnr
tin, and it does right well and even much
better, to repeat it in 1878.
If Curtin waagood enough in 1872 HE
IS SIX TIMES BETTER IN 1878, and
the Watchman knows it, and we can
use its own columns to prove it.
Soldiers who have received tbe
League Circular, read the able letter of
Mhj. Forstcr in this issue, on Pensions.

A GRAND RALLY AT PHIL>
Tho democratic meeting at Philipe
bnrg, on last Saturday, was one of the
largest held in tliia state during this
campaign, and a grand rally of the dem
ocracy of Centre, Clearfield and Clinton.
Four ex-governors, Hendrickf, of In
diana, Walker of Virginia, and Bigler
and Curtin of this state, were present;
also Mr. Africa our nominee for Sec'y of
Gov. Itigler was chairman and deliv
ered a good speech. He was followed
by Gov. Hendricks who made a ringing
speech, that did every democrat's aoul
good to listen to. Upon ascending the
stand tremendous cheering went up
from tho assembled thousands, and
throughout his remarks he was fre
quently interrupted by applause. In
his opening he paid a glowing tribute to
Gov. Curtin, and said that no good dem
ocrat would refuse to vote for CurtiD. At
every mention of Curtin's name the
wildest cheers went up. Mr. Hendricks
then spoke upon the issues of the day
in a manner so forcible, yet so plain,
that none could fail to understand.
It was one of those speeches that do
good. Upon the greenback question—
and he is a grecnbacker—he explained
the folly of a democrat leaving the par
ty, and going into a new one, that can
have no prospect of getting into power.
We do not believe there was an honest
greenbacker present who failed to see
the truth of his remarks.
EX-GOT. Gilbert C. Walker next ap
peared and was greeted witla trcmcnil
oufl cheering. He alao strongly urged
democrats to give Curtin a aolid vote,
believing he would be an honor to the
party and of great service to the country
in congress. The governor then touched
briefly upon other topics, and on ac
count of a cold did not speak very long.
He is a fine, noble looking man. The
next speaker was our Andy. The cheers
that greeted him, wouldn't go into a big,
barn. It was a glorious meeting but we|

soothing reply. "Everybody olse is."
said the poor child. "They won't come

and we were with him, I and mamma."
Meek oppoaes Curtin, to do Cameron

"would make a creditable Congressman."

Now, let u* have a little bit of "invettiga- 1

wa the -Hth cougrea* and wa have had

tay that these bodies passed no law* "for

In relation to one of tbe act* of a "re- ,

that all arrearage* of pensions which have

I death or Uncharge of the soldiers entitled
; to the same."
| Why, let me ask, it the act to pay ar
rvarage* of pensions not now on the slat
j ute book ? A slight "investigation" will
; prove that it is owing to no fault ot a deui-
I ocralic house of representative* at Wash" i

arrearage* of pensions are concerned, need

In glancing over the Cbnyrrssi -naf Ret
' i>rJ I was particularly struck with the case
I of Abram V Miller, whom I knew as a
acldier of the lata war from Centre coun
-1 ty, Pa., and for who** benefit a special*
I act was passed at the lata session of eon
, grins. The caae of Mr. Miller was one
that had for many years enlistud the earn
' est and heartfelt sympathy of every one
1 familiar with the circuniitar.ro* under
.1 which ho had incurred his disability, and
the cause by which ho was debarred from
' the benefits of existing pension laws. Dur-
ing the summer of 18'74 he went into the
service with tho rank of First lieutenant,
in a hatullion of the 184 th Pennsylvania
• volunteers, which wat sent to the front be
i fore the eomplalion of tho regimental or
ganization. Ho held a commission from
' tho governor of the statu, but uufortunale
' |y was compelled to go to tho front with
out a formal muster into the service of tho
' I*niled States. Tho detachment was hur
' rioil forward was joined tho army of the
< Potomac a day or two bofore the battle of
Cold Harbor. In the fight at Cold Har
bor, Llout- Miller received a frightful
' wound. Pur a long period of time be was
> a helpless being, and whan, after leaving
the service by roaton of tho disability rc
' suiting from this wound, he made applics
- lion for a pension hit anomalous position
as regards tho service was discovered and
' he found himself barred under any of the
' provisions of the law on the books, until
the 461h congress came to his relief in the
closing hours of tho session last summer.
In the proceedings of the house of repre
sentatives. on the lVlh of June. Panares
: rioiuU JUtord, 1878, No. 140, page 4, [ find
ilio following record of the case, honors
' Lie alike to the spacer (Mr Kendall, 1
i presume,) and the body rcr which he
speaker The chair finds upon
the table a pension bill that will be lost
• unless it is taken up at once. The chair
knows the disposition of the bouse in this
' respect, and the chair does not like to
i ij.vo any pension bill left over,
i "The bill (U. R. No. 1,625,) "granting*
pension to Abram V. Miller, late * |isu
'■ umanl in company E . of tho 184 th regi
' mcnl of Pennsylvania volunteers," re
i turnod from the senate with an amend
ment, was Ukan from the speaker's ta
bl"Thebill was read. It autborigof and
directs the secretary of the interior lo
nlaco upon the pension-rell tho name of
Abram V. Miller, late first lieutenant of
company E., Jblth regiment Pennsylva
nia volunteers, to dato frein the ,17th day
of January, 1878,
"Tho amendmont of the senate was as
follows : Stike out 'the 17th day of Janui '
ary, 1875.' and insert 'and after its pas- '
sage.' Tho amendment was agreed lo."
I introduce this esse, not for'lbo pur* 1
i,oee of finding fault with tho senate, but
merely to show that the bouse in fixing
the lime from which this pension should
date was only legislating in harmony with
its previous action In regard to arrearages.
Enough, however, is shown by it to prove
that if a question ofliberality in tbe grant
ing of pensions, and tho passage of pension *
bills, is raised betwocn a democratic bouse 1
and a republican senato during the exist- '
once ot the Forty-fourth congress, and '
thus far In the life of the Forty-fifth, the
balance will not he against the democratic <
"Xt n question like Ibis should not be 1
thought of by any one; for tlio truth i*
that, in the main, the representative men
of all partivs ami all shades of opinion
have shown a moat praiseworthy disposi
lion le deal justly and generously towards 1
