The next election in Pennsylvania
will be held on Tuesday, the 4th of No
Voters most be assessed two months
preceding the election, that ,on os be
fore Thursday, September 4th.
Voters must have paid a state or
county tax one month preceding the
election, that is, on or before Saturday.
October 4th.
Members of Democratic state, county,
and city committees should see to it that
every voter of our party has complied
with the law.
Failure to pay tax in season deprives
the voter of the privilege of suffrage. An
elector can swear in his vote, though In*
be not assessed, but the neglect may
cause him much trouble.

There has been more shot gun policy
north, oflate. than south—yet there is
no radical how! yet. Go in boy's, and
bellow, until you're hoarse.
The Cherokee Indians have elected
Bushy Head as chief.
W'e wonder whether sap-head, block
head or mush-head won't feel down iu
the mouth about itnow ?
The shot-gun policy is fast taking root
among the loyal shriekers north of Mas
son Dixon's line. One of the loyal
organs says a musket should be at eve
ry voting place to shoot democrats.
The L■ 'm Gaz<t': didn't go into a
howl over the Conkling affair or the
Kalloch shooting—the sho. gun policy
wasn't south this time. NYhenever a
negro or carpet-bagger down south gets
a black eye on account of some impu
dence, the (rozeiu and sheets of the satm
politics, make weeks of ado about it.
Mr. H. Frvsinger has sold the Lewis
town Trur Democrat and will take charge
of a democratic paper in Chester, Fa.
Sorry to hare Mr. F. leave this part of
the state, bun paper always was a favor

attend him. Mr. IX L. Sollenberger of
Sunbury is the successor of Mr. Frvsing
er, who will continue the paper demo
cratic as heretofore. Success to him
Sunday last was the last day of sum
mer, according to the almanac, but
Monday seemed to have no regard for
the almanac, and old Sol kept pouring
down his rays as fiercely as ever, bathing
us in a sweltering beat, as if to remind
us that summer was not all played out
yet and a lively remnant still on hand.
The latest from Grant is that he goes
it with an "if." He is not a candidate
for president, still, if it should happen
that the republican party should need
him, he will accept. We never knew
Grant to refuse any thing except a bull
pup upon which the express charges
were not paid.
Last week we furnished the evidence
taken before the Wallace committee of
the way in which honest men and sol
diers of the war are denied their rotes
in Rhode Islandbecause they are poor.
This week we give only a little of the
evidence that shows how voters are bull
dozed in righteous Massachusetts. I>et
all honest and candid men read and re
fleet over these damnable outrages.
Richmond, Va., August 28.—Nelson
Lewis, colored, died to-day from injuries
received yesterday at the hands of Will
iam Goodman, colored. Both were dray
men and a difficulty originated in a
Squabble for right of way.
If Goodman had been a white man
the whole northern radical pack of
howlers would have had columns of de
nunciation over a new southern outrage.
But in this instance it was nigger that
killed nigger and nothing need be said.
According to a London paper the
Great Eastern is to be turned into a
great meat-shop. The owners have at
last determined to convert the great ship
into a meat-carrying trade, between
London and Texas. The requisite alter
ations, which include new boilers, will
involve an expenditure of about £IOO,OOO
hut as the vessel can carry 2,000 head of
cattle or 30,000 sheep the speculation
should prove remunerative.
A Savannah negro had a narrow es
cape last Monday. He was in bis coffin,
having died, as his friends thought, two
days before, and the preacher was talk
ing away about life on the other side of
Jordan, when the corpse sat up, stared
around him and deliberately crawled
out. The irregular proceeding caused
the congregation, preacher, relatives and
all to make for the street, with the man
in grave clothes after theui. Getting
over their fright the colored people shook
hands with the restored man, who had
been only in a trance.
This reminds us of the dead corps of
the democratic party that the republi
cans so often attempted to bury, it al
ways gets up out of its coffin and scares
the whole radical tribe into fits and
makes them scatter in all directions.
That democratic party won't die.

The tirst steps in the riot damages or
legislative bribery cases were taken at
Harrtslmrg on Judge IVaraon charg
ed the grand jury in the matter m a
manner that proves he desires the truth
to come out. He instructed them to find
true hills in all the cases of corrupt s >-
llcitation of members of the Legislature
if the testimony submitted to them
should correspond with that heard by
the Committee of the Legislature. The
indictments presented for the considera
tion of the tiraml Jury refer to oulv
those persons outside the legislature
who are alleged to have offered money
for votes for the bill appropriating SL
-000,000 to indemnify owners of property
destroyed in the Tittsburg riots, but the
Judge also instructed them to proceed
against any members implicated in cor
rupt solicitation, so that all the guilty
may be placet! on an equal footing. A
committee at the last session of the Leg
islature found Representatives Bamber
ger, I'etroff and George T. Smith guilty
of attempted bribery, but the House re
fused to expel them, the necessary two
thirds vote not Seing obtained for ex
pulsion. These men, with probably
three other members, will likely be add
, ed to the list of defendants in the riot
bribery cases. About twenty members
of the Legislature have Wen subpoenaed
to appear before the Grand Jury, all of
i whom, accordingto their testimony in
May last, had been offered money to
vote for the Riot Claims bill. The Com
monwealth w ill demand the production
of te leg rain.i bearing on the bribery
business passing between the principal
lobbyists, : n order that they may be us
ed as evidence. A refusal on the part
of the Western Union company is appre
The cases will no doubt be postponed
for trial at a special term in October.
The trial of l'eter llerdic at !'• llefonte
last week, foi obtaining fsOOO from Win.
F. Reynolds & Co., under false pretense,
was taken up, Wednesday noon, and
lasted until Friday evening when the
jury, aft . Wing out some four hours,
> ame in with a verdict of not guilty, hut
Mr. .llerdic to pay the costs. This case
attracted considerable interest not only
in our county, bnt in the state, from the
well known let laracter of the defendant
who rendered himself very prominent
by his large speculations and business
The charge was that Mr. Herdic ob
tained s*>. ) from the banking house of
\Vm. F. Reynolds Co. upon securities
that he represented as first liens upon
real estate in Wiihamsport, which the
bank allege did not prove to be so. Some
twenty witnesses were present from
Williamsport, on Mr. Herdic's side.
The counsel on the part of the com
monwealth were district attorney Fort
ney, Gen. Reaver and A. O. Furst. Mr.
Herdic's counsel were W. R. Mann of
Philadelphia, J. L. Spongier, and Ed.
Rlanchard and Hon. C. T. Alexander.
The case throughout was ably conduc
ted on the part of the commonwealth,
but as ably defended on the part of the
counsel of the defendant. The court
house was crowded during the entire
trial. The verdict of the jury was as
above stated, in favor of Mr. Herdic
hut he was mulcted* in the costs. The
evidence, we are told, which was the
turning point in favor 01 the accused was
that Reynolds & Co. could have made
themselves safe with their securities if
they had made efforts in that direction
at the proper time, and that they neg
lected the opportunity.
r The evidence in the Herdic case was
closed at 10 a. m.on Friday, the last wit
ness being the defendant himself. Coun
sel for the prosecution objected to his
testimony, but the Court overruled the
objection, and he was called upon the
.-land. The substance of his testimony
was a denial of intention to cheat the
prosecutor. Colonel Mann made the
closing speech on the part of the defend
ant and General Beaver for the Com
monwealth. Judge Orvis then charged
the jury, and they retired at 5 o'clock.
On the part of the commonwealth the
the case Jwas o|>ened by Mr. Fort ney,
and on the part of the defence by Mr.
A society was formed several years ago
to produce a reform in speling—a thing
much neded. This society has among
its members profesors and eminent
-colars, boose the absurd maner in wirh
meny words in the English language aie
speled, ret lering it dificult foraforener
to become acquainted with it and requir
ing at leest to yers of time that is wasted
by our children in lerning to master the
roundabout way of speling so meny of
the words. If ever the REPORTER gets
within fifty miles of this .Society for Re
form in Speling, we wil go the fifty and
join it.
Some may oppose this reform, and
one argument tha use is that the words
would look so od. That mile be true;
but it is equely true that to men woncc
used to it, say 30 yers after the reform
was established, the words as now speled
wud lok both absurd as wel as lafable,
and scolars and lerned men wud wonder
wi we of this generation wer so bad in
our speling and putletersin words that
did not spel any thing at all and tok .

master the absurdities insted of going at
it in its simplicity and taking the comon

I Althosome may laf at the EXPORTER

with the jawbreaking sistem in speling,
we wil undertake to thro many words
before them that fu can spel. Won #e

and still another a "fisic" until we had
them all on ther baks with reconisans

THAT 11! YOTI 1' AGAIN* T Till
Says Tildcn Got t)ver 8,000 Majority
in Ixiui-iatra.
Kock Island, August Among the
national celebrities who are here i- Li.-
, tice Samuel F. Miller of the lulled S' a -
tes Supreme t'ourt and a member ol tin
1 ght to Seven Flectoral oninii.—ion
which installed R. I">. Hayes in the
■ l'mudency. On every test questiou be
• fore the Commission Justice Miller \ot
t ed with the Republicans, refusing to go
lichtml the returns, in the cases of Lou
isiana and Florida, and supporting eve
' ry other measure of the Republican ma
. jorilv for reversing the verdict of the
, people and depriving Mr. Tilden of the
seat to which he had been chosen. In
' person, Judge Miller is a stout, powor
' fully built man, with swarthy couute
. nance, strongly marked features, and
. the careles- dress and free, otl-haud
manners of a prosperous Western farm
er or merchant. He B|>e.iks las mind
1 clearly and with emphasis.
On Friday morning, August 10, the
. Judge made one of a party of fi ur on
the balcony of the Ocean \ w Hotel
1 Mr. Walter V Haldetuan of Louisville,
■ Mr. William G. McHenry, formerly pro
prietor of the St. Louis/' , and a
correspondent of the N w lio ' ad been
previously introduced to Judge Miller as
* such 1, making up the group, which was
- afterward joined by Judge lllodgt tt of
, the United States District Court of Chi
cago. The conversation turned upon
Mr. Tilden's canvass for the Presidency.
" and Judge Miller expressed his tiehet
t that Mr. Tilden krn-w more about the
j cipher dispatches than he had yet ad
. milted, lie also said that Mr. Tilden,
while now making political capital by
antagonising Tammany llatl, had form
i erly worked with that organisation, and
j had been intimately associated with it a-
ChairmJti of the Democratic State Com
mittee when the great fraud.- of I s -
1 were perpetrated, lie then said:
"i have met Mr. ITUlenonly 011,0 m
the last sixteen years. That was at Sara
toga last summer, when he occupied a
cottage near tny place of residence, ami
passed me frequently. 1 thought of
speaking to him once or twice, hut did
uot know how he might take it in view
of my position toward his ciaim- :n th<
matter of the Electoral Tribunal. 1
think that he unquestionably tried to
buy that elector in Oregon—that tin
s.■-,000 which was transferred by tele
graph for that purpose came out of lu.-
pocket. 1 think also that money was
raised, with his know ledge, for the pur
pose of buying one of the Returning
Hoards, and that only his characteristic
hesitation prevented his using that
method of securing the Hoard. on the
other may be said of him that
he honestly thought himself elected and
entitled to the votes of the two Southern
States whichlke tribunal decided against
him. He was elected in I.ouisiaua —
that is, he got eight or ten thousand
more actual votes there than Hares. In
the event of his success next year 1
think he will make a good 1 resident.
He is a man of great ability, unwearied
pertinacity and extraordinary courage.
He cannot be bullied by the p hticiai -
or office seekers. He has made an ex
cellent Governor of New York, and has
shown administrative and executive
powers of a high order. He is old and
rich, and has no temptation to abuse the
powers of his office, while he has every
inducement to give the country a good
administration, once which will enure to
his fame and obliterate in a measure the
scandals which have attached to his
"What do you think of the result- f
the extra session?' was asked.
"I think that both parties made mis
takes, and that the Republicans would
have done better had they given up the
army at the polls, and in fact conceded
everything except the supervisors' law.
On that they could have made an excel
lent fight without giving their oppo
nents the chance of raising the cry
against military interference with elec
tions. The disgrace of the grand back
down, however, rented with the Demo
crats. Thurman in the Senate and i w
ing in the House could have prevented
the extra session easily, had they mind
ed to, and the responsibility for it in a
good measure rested with them. It had
injured Thurman greatly and considera
bly diminished whatever chances he
might have had for the Presidency."
Concerning Secretary Sherman b can
vass and the efforts he is said to be mak
ing to obtain the Republican nomination
H the Judge said :
"It does not follow because a man is
Secretary of the Treasury and makes
use of the great power and patronege of
s his office, that he is necessarily going to
B succeed in the race for the nomination.
. Two former Secretaries, James Guthrie
and Salmon P. Chase, in turn did what
Mr. Sherman is notv charged with do
' ing, and yet they signally failed when
j the time came."
And Calls for the Indictment of the
Bribed Legislators.
At Harrisburg, on Monday, at theopen
ing of tha August term of Court, thoC'uurt
room was crowded, whenJudgo Pearson
charged the Grand Jury. After defining
all grads of crinio the Judge finally
reached that of corrupt solicitation, and
the nioß intense ulenco prevailed as he
charged the jury on this crime. The ref
erenoe to legislators attempting to bribe
fellow members is regarded a rofcrring
to Kumhcrger, l'etroff ar.d Sinitb. The
following are Judge Pearson's re-marks
relative to f-orrupt solicitations :
I will now call your attention, gentle
men, loan offense probably of rather dif
ferent character from of most of those, and
one which has not often come before the
public here, and it is one of those offenses
that is, if committed, highly injurious to
society, dargorous to public morals and
dangerous to the general administration of
the government of the country, and that
is solicitation to receivo bribes, solicitation,
as alleged, to members of the Legislature
to receive bribes, offers to them of a kind
which is forbidden by the law, and 1 will
call your attention to the law on the sub
ject. I speak of it, gentlemen, as n crime
which strikes almost at the foundation* of
society, because if, instead of having fair,
honest, proper legislation, according t
the best discretion arid judgment of the
legislators, we are to have them bought
over to vote for measures or soto against
measures which the public requires, or
which are injurious to the public either
the one or the other, then I sn,y it is dun
gerous to society at large, and wo should
most carefully guard against anything of
that kind. 1 will, in the first place, call
your attention to the Constitution of the
Commonwealth on that subject. It is net
merely a person soliciting, but the person
agreeing to receive, or actually receiving,
that ought to be held up to public scorn
and contempt by being indicted- in the j
criminal court, 1

They have not the same power tbit the''
Courts have in compelling thu attendance
and testimony ol witnesses a* we have the
power to do ; sometimes they are not very
noxious to lind out what has been done,
-vmetirnea they arc not very willing to ex
pos# whether they have bean guilty ot re
cciving bribe., they don't want to tell
anything that takes placo, but we want to
lind out evcryth.tig about it; we want to
get to tin; truth ot the matter, and Ret to
the bottom of it, and see who is guilty nr;<l
who is not guilty, or whether any person
is guilty, or whether it is a more general
slander. As 1 said belore, you act upon
the evidence and upon that alone, and not
upon anything that you have ever read in
the newspnpers about what took place in
the Legislature last winter. Do not he in
fluenced in the least by that I)o not be
influenced in the least by any public
[opinion. Do not be influenced in the
least by politics or by anything else than
the evidence which is produced before you.
Ifthe Commonwealth cannot now produce
witnesses* before you to establish tho facts,
you ignore tho hills If tho Common
wealth does produce witnesses to establish
the facts, find them without tho least re
gard to whom it will strike, without the
legist regard to the character of the per
sons who have been guilty of planning
anything of that kind or of soliciting olh
