Hayes, the fraudulent, on Thurwda]
pent In hla veto of the legislative and ju
dicial bill, because of the clauses that re
peal the iafamons deputy marshal sec
tion and the Jnror'a test oath. Thoe<
tyranical acts along with the bayone
election law Hayee and his party wial
to keep alire so as to aid them in th<
next presidential election, knowing tha
they will not stand the shadow of i
chance if dependent upon an open anc
free election. The necessity for the re
pe*l of these acts is pro Ten by the testi
many taken by the Wallace committee
from the month of republican marshals
another little chapter of which is print
ed in this week s Keporter.
Hayes was put in the chair by fraui
and of course he will uphold the ways o
fraud to keep his party in power.
Let the Democrats of Congress ho'.i
out to the last for free elections.
The committee of investigation ou tlx
riot damages bill reported last week anc
makes a very had showing for anumbei
of members of the house, and some ci
the republican party leaders—ljuay
Kemble and others. It is thought thret
members will have to be expelled an J
some others censnrevi. Tnis is not a
surprise to us. A legislature that wi
sit ever time without doing anything ai
all. of course is corrupt to the core, ami
ready for anything that is venal. The
members from this county, it is gratify
ing to say. are not tainted with the r.oi
This legislature was the meanest and ol
less account than any that ever conven
ed in our state. This is the verdict ol
the people. _
ressman Foster, the Ohio repub
licans' nominee for governor, is llavet
choice. He wjs nominated on first bal
lot over Tmfr, of the Orant wing, hy It
majority. This would show that Have;
with his patronage is only a little strong
er than Grant in Ohio. The democrats
it ia thought will nominate Senatoi
Thuraian, who is popular as he is able
and it is not likely he can be defeated.

The railroad war between the Penn
sylvania and Yanderbilt lines is raging
with great fierceness in Chicago, and so
far all attempts to adjast it hare foiled.
The new line to Pittsburgh via Youngs
town and the Lake Erie road, is an im
portant factor in the convention of the
great lines. A Chicago dispatch says:
Since the opening of the new line to
Pittsburgh, the Lake Shore and Michi
gan Southern has been, and now is, sel
ling first-class tickets to Pittsburgh foi
$7.50, the regular rate being sl?and the
Fort Wayne has been compelled to re
duce in order to obtain a share of the
business, and besides, is retaliating by
cutting on fares to Toledo and Cleve
land. The bitterest fight, howeter is on
freight, and rates to Pittsburgh and
Cleveland are lower than they have been
for many years. It is said that freight
for Pittsburgh was taken at ttc per hun
dred pounds, and five cents to Cleve
land. Live stock rates to Pittsburgh are
down almost to nothing. Ho long as the
war continues on Pittsburgh rales there
is little prospect that any change for the
better will take place in the east bound
war on the tough business.
The Allegheny county republicans
held their nominating convention the
other day, and it turned into a first class
row. Fists were doubled, pistols point
ed. curses fell loud and thick, and the
devil generally broke loose, until the
police stepped in and stopped the dis
graceful muss. Next there will be new
riot-damages William before our legis
lature. Welljits "all the decency party'
Bloody noses, black eyes, and damag

"God and morality" party after the fust
was over. And what add* to the sweat

also bad a hand in the affair; we will
quote just one instance from the report!
in Monday's papers:
Perhaps never before in tke history
of Allegheny county were primary elec
tions attended by so much drunkenness
disorder and confusion, and never bj
such serious riots. • •
The most serious disturbance occurrec
on Erin street, near Wylie, in the Elev
enth ward, at the pells of the Fourth
district A squad of t;n or eleven ne
grots who had been tilled np to the bria
with fighting whisky, doubtless furnish
ed by the friends of the candidates, took
a notion that they would clean out the
place. Fred Lincoln was standing near
the polls quietly looking at the voting
when one impudent negro advanced ant'
slapped him on the cheek. Lincoln
stood his ground and knocked down
several of the cowardly assailants, when
the latter drew their razors and com
menced slashing at their opponent
Two or three of the negroes were alsc
provided with revolvers and they
brought them into use. Fortunately nc
person was shot, though namerous shot!
were fired. One bullet went through a
white man's bat. Lincoln sustained a
fearful gash in the right cheek, extend
ing from the cheek Done down several
inches. He also received two smaller
cats aboat the month, had one rib brok
en, was injured about the bead, and bad
numerous severe braises. * * '
Another row eccurred in the Seventh
ward, at the corner of Elm and Wylie
which was almost as disgraceful as thai
related above. Negroes were engaged
in this, too, though it is not so plain
that they were to blame in this case.
Razors, knives and revolvers were
drawn here, too, and for a time the
diaturbance bid foir to become a general
riot. * * *
One day last week, while the bouse at
Harrisburg was noisy—not an unusual
thing—Speaker Long, who handles the
house with ability, was several times
put about to maintain order. Capt.
Gillespie, during some of the noisy
times, took up to the Speaker's desk a
large bright horse pistol, nearly half a
yard long. The Speaker raised it ami
shook it around and asked the House M
they wanted him to use that. Jtcreate.)
Yes, we say, the Speaker should have
used it. All experience has proven that
members will not he detent, und dis
grace the state by their turbulent con
duct. Instead of the gavel let the speak
er be provided with a brace of seven
ahooters aud use it against the riotous
members—it will cost the state lesa to
have a funeral than to have time wasted
and business neglected by the roughs
who play law-makers in the state legis
lature. Further, let the Speaker have
authority to shoot every member who
has been proven guilty of corrupt prac
tices. All other remedies for improve
ment have been exhausted—we favor
the shooting process now.
The flO bond business has turned out

poor men petting the small bonda, they

' Hayes and company in continuing tliii
t outrageous law on the statute hooka
Neither Mr. Payn, nor Kennedy, his
) chief clerk, also examined before the
committee, could name a person who
was arrested for false registration. The
polls were amply protected by police
men, who were able to put down any
disturbance, maintain the peace and
vindicate the law.
The democrats in caucus, by nearly
unanimous action, bave decided upon
the action to be taken relative to new
appropriation bills, which in effect will
accomplish the same end as the bills
vetoed. If the fraudulent President
wants to veto again he can now have
another chance to prove that he would
use the bayonet at the polls. In an

The "Bull" and "Hog" rings of the

ill ring was represented by the Kxatw

Leisenring, Cochran, clerk o> the senate
and the Cameron clan, general!v. The
Hog ring was led by the New I'.ra, ex-
District Attorney Johnson, IT dbonou
ry M'Mellen, County Treasurer Urofi
and others. The fight was for the con
trol of the prison and poor house. Kach
party charged the other with thievery
and bribery, in placards posted abou:
the city. Uetnrns show that Columbia
gives about 150 majority for the Bull
ring when 400 was expected, while
Marietta goes heavily for the Hog ring
In this city the Hog ring candidate foi

I was argued in I-ock Haven bef we hi-
Honor Judge Orris last week which u
of particular interest as involving a poin
on which it is believed there is n<
American decision, and which decided
the case in favor of the plaintiff. The
suit was James D. Mason vs. The Firs
National Bank of Lock Haven. S. K
Peale for plaintiff, C. G. Furst and C. 8
McCormick for defendant. The actior
was to recover a balance due plaintif
by the bunk. His ac-ount had beer
running nearly two years, when, Octo
ber 35, 1975, the bank refused to bonoi
bis checks, there being at the tiuic
money credited to his account in exce
of the check presented. About the
| samt date the firm of Thomas A Manor
failed. The bank, believing that th<
money deposited to the credit of Jatnei
D.Mason was the property of ThomaH <S
Mason (John 8. Mason), notified bin
that tber would not pay bis check, bu
would charge overdue notes of 'l'homai
A Mason to his account. On the trial
Mr. Peale, the plaintiff's able attorney
took the position that a depositee (the
party receiving the deposit) could noi
question the title of the depositor ; tha
he was estopped in law from doing so ir
the absence of any claim of ownershit
I by a third party, ibat a depositee couk
not in an action by the depositor to re
cover the amount of the deposit, set oil
notes of a third party to defeat the ac
tion. These objections wt-re sustainet
by Judge Or vis, and a verdict readerec
for plaintiff for $1,524 07.
It was forcibly argued in substance bi
council for plaintiff that if this rule did
not prevail, it would unsettle the busi
ness of banks and seriously disturb lb<
relation heretofore existing betweer
the depositee and the depositor
and that if the banks be accorded tbii
new and unwarranted power over de
posits, tbey would necessarily incui
with it new responsibilities, and becomi
answerable in a manner to de|>OMtori
that would make the sew found author
ity an injury instead of a benefit. If i
hank could pass upon a deposit in Ihii
way, it would also assume the responsi
bihty of disposing of the deposit con
trary to the will of the depositor, an<
be answerable in law to him for th<
transfer, and then become liable in i
manner that would annoy business
create suits at law, and ultimately kil
itself by its own bad operations. Tha
sucb could not have been intended at
the effect of the law is plain and th
propriety and justice of the position as
sinned is apparent.

full interchange of vit-wsand especially
* minute examination of Mr. Hayes' veto
t message in connection with sundry ex
-0 isting statute* prohibiting interference
1 by the army with election*, it was decid
-9 ed to recommend the immediate gisasage
t of a bill making the usual appropriation
. for the support of the army throughout
i. the next fiscal year, but containing a
a proviso I hat no portion of tsoncv there-
T iu appropriated shall lie used for the
3 pa>, transportation,equipment, or sub
- sistence of any troojsi used for police
r purposes to keep the peace at the polls,
e It was further decided to recommend
s the passage of the legislative, executive
9 and judicial appropriation lull in snb
a stautially the some terms tut last year's
e bill, and for the same amounts, except
s that they shall be mors minntelv speci
v tied, and except, also, that it *hail not
a make any provision for the pay of #u
t fiervisors or deputy marshals of elec
s tions. The new bill will, however, con-
I, tain a clause providing that no officer
, shall be appointed or obligation incur
-9 rml for any object for which a specific
t appropriation shall not Lave been made
t by congress. This clause is already on
3 the statute book, with the exception of
the words "or obligation incurred." and
] there is also an existing law w hirti pro
* hibits the diversion of any appropria-
T tion to a purpose diderent from that for
- which it has been specifically made.
1 The committees next agreed to m-ora
i mend the passage of a separate measure
embodying those sections of the vetoed
f appropriation bill which provide for the
1 amendments of the law concerning the
- method of drawing juries, and for the
t total abolition of the juror's lest oath
) In view of the factthat Mr. Hayes in his
; veto message makes no comment on
s these provisions, it is believed that he
will promptly approve them when pre
r seated to bitr by an independent bill,
e It was also argued to-day in behalf of
the adoption of the programme above
- outlined that Mr. Hayes cannot justifla
a bly withhold his signature from an ap-
B propriation bill merely because it omits
- to make provision for "a parttcnlar oh
- jeet, and that, in the anticipated event
1 of bis approving the present bills, the
e democrats will have accomplished for
9 the next year exactly what they would
i, have accomplished for an indefinite pe-
I riod of time by the former hills and
t what they may continue to accomplish
