unanimous fa their choice for the Yice

Sheriff of this county is no small affair,
as is well evinced by the number of

more! Ye honest voter:, what f;l6 . yon

you would no doubt think as wo do,
and wo know we are right when wo
say that out of this stall number there
will be. only oncWho will receive the
nomination, no matter what may be
the spirit of the contest. What, may
wo ask, is to come of our• Legislators,
our PrOthonotaries, our Registors,
if all our Office sectors aro going to lay
claim to one offloo ? Will we turn all
the rest of the offices into Sheriffs, in
order to satisfy this host, or will we
abolish the office of Sheriff entirely,
in order•to save the aspirants from do
feat and disappointment 7 As either
proposition is out of tho question, of
course we Will have to wait until the
Convention assembles, and then, like
MicaWber, see what will turn up. If.
we had the powerwe would make all
of them Sheriffs, bit gentlemen, this is
impossible; but Nvle would kindly ad
vise none of you'. to build too high
hopes upon your success; but like good
citizens await your chances, and in the
meantime,- secure a situation in some

A, TERRIBLE 140T.---111t01 I igenc o
reached. the - city Wednesday evening
that a desperate riot w Ae ut,
the coal mines of .1 - olin & Son,
at Pine Run, on the Monongahela riv
er, three ‘miles above McKeesport.—
The first intimation of
,the riot was
received by the Mayor, who was Lein
graphed to send • up iihmediately : ton
or twelve policeman And the Coroner.
Chief, Green enrolled thirty mon who
were properly Armed and drilled for
the encounter they would probably be
engaged in, but previous to,tho limo
for. the departure of, the train,. a . tele,
gram ,was .received - ,istatieg that the
services of the police, would not be
needed last, night, as t .tho, rioters had
diSP9rse4 , .
Relative to the origin of the riot, it
seems that some time ago - the miners
in the employ of Mr. O'Neill & Son
Struck ford certain-rate of wages. Af
ter holding - out until yesterday they
returned to Work, which so exaspera
ted the millers in- the neighboring
works - that they determined to corn,
poi them to quit labor and hold out.--
Witb,this object in view some two
hundied mon from the neighborhood
of Six Milo Ferry arrived about noon
yesterday*, O'Noill's works, armed
with- clip. They..called upon the
minors to come out and cease work.—
Their demand was refused by
: Mr. O'-
Neill and his men, and a collision en
sued between the parties. Mr,, O'Neill
and his men were armed ,in anticipa
tion of the trouble, and - at the onset of
the rioters discharged their .weapono
at them; killing ono man, and wound
ing five, only ono of . the latter, how
ever, seriously. In he melee 141 r. O'-
Neill was severely, but not.dangerous
ly wounded by
.blows ,from clubs.
Having met with a N . var - mor reception
than they anticipated, aad not caring
to prolong the fight with clubs against
powder and lead, the mob•dispersed.
After rioters had
.left, Mr. O'Neill
was reinforced from the neighborhood,
and last night himself . and , property
was guarded by ono hundred armed
men. His son will be in the city to
day, and make an information before
Mayor Blaekmore against the rioters,'
when a,sufficient armed force, will: be
sent up. for their., arrest.—Pittsburg
Perhaps some persons may think it
not a little strange that two influential
Romin'Ootholic papers of the Demo
cratic 'Peisnaskin politically- ono in
New York, the other in Cincinnati- 7.
shenld - within - the last ! few days have
come out for Mr. : Chase 'for presickoit.
With Mein, not as
. cortain jour
nals which havil proposed Mr. Otiose
more in derision than earnest, they ap
pear to be catirely sincere, a fact which,
while there is- not the least likelihood
of the Democracy adopting Mr. Chase,
proves that really there is something
at the bottom of the, idea. The fact
denotes liberality in another respect—
Mr. Chase being a loading Methodist.
Says a New York letter : In the
event of the removal of the Pre'sident
Mr. Seward writes to' his friends here,
so I am informed, that ho will at MI6
leave the Cabinet. In Wall street, Mr.
McCullough's friends are in doubt as to
his course, in the_ Same contingency,
but those of them who sustain the clo
sest business relations with him, ap
pear to be pretty confident that he like
wise will resign hiS place. Horace
Greely is confidently spoken of as Mr.
Randall's sucriessior in the Postoffice
Report in the Untested Election Case,
Mr. Landon, from the committee se
looted to try the contested election
case of Robison vs. Shugart, made the
following report, viz :
In the matter of the contested elec
tion in-the Twenty-first Senatorial dis
trict, the select committee present .the
,following report :
The last election returns gave Sam'l
T. Shugart, the Democratic candidate
14,124 votes, and John K. Robison, the
Republican candidate, 14,102 votes,
1 the first mentioned, therefore, having
twenty-two (22) majority, claimed and I
was accorded a seat in the Senate.
The election is contested by the said
Robison, upon the ground of fraudulent
and, illegal voting upon the day of
election, claiming that if all illegal and
unauthorized votes be excluded from
the count, that ho and not the sitting
member would be clearly and positive.
ly entitled to tho seat.
Your committee was drawn on the
9th day of January, 1868. They met
on the same day and organized; H. B.
Swoops and John Cessna appearing as
counsel for the contestant, and Hon.
John Maynard, Wm. H. Miller and
John H. Orvis, Esq., for the sitting
member. The committee has met
daily, as required by law, and during
most of the time have held two meet
ings per day. Ono hundred and sev
enty-six (178), witnesses were called
and heard on the part of the petitioner
and contestants, , during a period of
three weeks, two hundred and fear
witnesses on the part of the ,respon
dent, during a period of six weeks,
making the total number of witnesses
examined three hundred and eighty.
The business sessions of the com
mittee wore hold at the capitol except
one, when a meeting was held in
Wilkesbarre, Luzerne county, for the
examination of the naturalization re
cords of that county, for the purpose
of ferreting out certain alleged natur
alization frauds claimed to have
nated in that locality.
A minute analysis of the vast =1
of evidence taken would be tedious
and unnecessary in this, report. The
nommittee_presents herein the promi
nent and determining facts of the case
without elaborating details, only add
ing in,their own behalf that they have
performed the duty assigned them
with all possible industry and 'care,
and present this conclusion• of their
protracted labors -free from partisan
bias upon - their candor and sworn
The counsel for the respondent have
earnestly. contended that the whole
Of Taylor township, in the county of
Centre, should be thrown out, for the
reason, as they. allsge, that it
_was not
held at the place fixed by law. In this
township, the contestant had eighteen
majority.. It seems that by an act of
Assembly in 1848, it was provided
that the election in, Taylor township,
in the county of Centro, should be hold
at the school house near Hannah Fur
mice. In August, 1856, a petition of
the citizens of the township was pre
sented to the court of quarter sessions
of the county, setting forth that the
school house near Hannah Furnace,
where the election was appointed by
law to be held, had been removed, and
praying the court to order the election
-to be beld-Rty-nuothur-onnei-ur anther.
izo an election to be held in the town
ship, for the purpose of fixing a place
at which to hold the general election,
On the back of this petition the court
endorsed an order, fixing Friday, the
26th of September, as the day for hold
ing au election in the township, for
the purpose of determining where the
general election should be held. This
order was made on the 25th day of
August, 1850. A paper was produced
by the prothonotary which he states
he found in his office, but which is not
marked filed, purporting to bo the re
turn of the election so authorized by
the court. This paper shows for the
house of William' Adanis, fourteen
votes; for the Henderson school house,
five votes; and for the Hannah school
house, three votes. No action seems
ever to have been taken upoici it by
the court. No order or 'decree was
ever made fixing the house of Wiliam
Adams as the place of holding', the
election. The parol proof in this ease
showed that the election was held for
a while at the house of Wm. Adams';
that it was transferred in some man
ner from there to a wagon-maker shop
on land of Thomas Merryman, about
the year 1860; that in the fall of 1860
the wagon-maker shop was torn down,
and Thomas Merryman forbid the offi
cers from holding any more elections
on his premises; that they went to the
nearest school houie (the Henderson
school house, one and a half mile dis
tant from Morryman's,) ' whore they
held the spring election in_ 1867,
and also the full election, which
we aro asked to decide invalid. With
out a further statement' of facts, the
committee excludes this poll from the
election returns,
which , deducts eigh
teen votes from the returned vote for
Tim K. Robison...
The respondent claims to have prov
ed sixty-eight illegal' scattering votes
cast - for the contestant, comprising
minors, non-residents and non-tax pay
mil- This being the whole number
claimed; the committee allows the full
number and deducts the same from the
vote of John K. Robison..
- .Both
: parties have proved a' large
number of deierter votes. The de
fense claims that this whole questiOn
should be ignored. Without stating
tho argument, in the case and realiz
ing the .difficulties gathering about, the
subject, the _committee accede 'to - the
claim, and leaVe this class of voters
where the general election returns have
placed them, without expressing any
opinion upon the legal questions in
volved in the Matter.
The returns from Carbon township,
Huntingdon county, give the sitting
member sixty-five majority.' This the
committee exclude from the count, for
the following reasons :
:1. Because the election was improp
-orly held. It, was in a . hotel; there
was a crowd around the table upon
which the ballots were being deposit
ed, and a great deal of disorder while
the tickets wore, being counted. At
one time during' the day the whole
board, except one inspector, was ab
sent, and ho continued taking votes,
recoving, among others, the vote of
one William Plumb, an unnaturalized
2. Because there was no certificate
of the oaths of the - officers filed in the
prothonotary's office, as required by
3. Because when the ballot box was
opened. in the presence of the commit
tee, it was found to contain newspa
pers, old election returns, pamplet
laws, &c., but no tickets and no list of
4. Because a certified copy of the
list of taxables from - the commission
er's office showed that forty-one names
on the list of voters were not on the
assessment, and in the absence of the
list of taxableg frona-the ballot box, it
was impossible to ascertain how or
why these persons - were permitted to
Tho committee are of opinion that
the irregularities surrounding this
election aro of so gross and flagrant a
kind as to render . it impossible to as
certain what Was the true expression
of the pdpular will.
One of the material allegations of
the petitioners was that a gross fraud
had been perpetrated" in the borough
of Phillipsburg and in Rush township,
in the county of - Centre. 'ln - support
of this charge, the following facts and
circumstances were relied on :
That about twelve days previous to
the election Irish • railroad hands, to
the number of eighty' and . upwards,
were sent from the unfinished work
hi Clearfield county, to Phillipsburg
and Rush township, in Centre county,
ostensibly for the purpose 'of comple
ting about forty rods of road on the
Centre county side of the line; that
these men, instead of being boarded at
the shanties, erected for that purpose,
in proximity to the work on the Clear- -
field side of the line, whore quartered
at the hotels in' Phillipsburg and Rush
township ; that they wore illegally as
sessed before they came into the dis
trict, from lists furnished the assessors
by one Mark Leddy, as boss on the
railroad; that it was expressly said by
James Collins, one.of the contractors,
and Richard O'Gormon, his foreman,
when the mon were ordered to Phil
lipsburg, that theY.were - sent there to
vote and carry the district for the De
mocratic ticket; and they did vote,
litiving been brought up to the polls
by Leddy and Sheriff Perks,
who furnished the special tickets that
had been printed and prepared for the
purpose; that thirty-seven of these
tickets wore found in the Phillipsburg
.box, and twenty.,sevea in the box of
Rush township.; tba . t they voted on
forged mitUralization papers, purport
ing to be issued by the court of com
mon pleas of Luzerne county; that
these paper's word shoWn. to be forged
by an examination of the records of
the court, madp'hy the committee, and
clear proof that similar papere,boaring
the seal of the
,court, and purporting
to be signed by.M.l. Philbin, the pro
thonotary, were strewn all over _Lu
zern° county, to be, obtained for the
asking'; and that immediately after
having thus voted, these men return
ed to Clearfield county, all of thorn
having left the hotels in Phillipsburg
and Rush township, within four days
after, the election. All those facts,
with many corrobbrating circumstan
ces, were clearly' established, to the
satisfaction of the,committee, by evi
dence too voluminous to he recited
in this respect.
It was shownby the inspector and
clerk of the election that at least thir
ty-three of these fraudulent votes were
received and included in the return in
too - b - oTeiight rhitlipsh - urg. The com
mittee are fully satisfied that these
thirty-three votes should be deducted
from the number returned for the sit
tin.. member.
In Rush township, the number of
those fraudulent votes actually. receiv
ed and counted could not be ascertain
ed from the evidence. For this and
other reasons, .the. contestant claims
that the whole vote of Rush, township
should be thrown, out, and
from the return, Ile bases this claim
on the following facts :
1. Becanse'the' beard, which was en
tirely of one party, was not legally
constituted, the only officer elected by
the people being the judge; both the
.deserters, and having
been appointed improperlyby thojudgo,
out of the same political party, and
not in accordance with the provisions
of the law regulating elections.
2. That the election was improperly
conducted, the house being open all
day, the collector sitting
, at the table
with the ballot box upon • receiving
taxes with a largo crowd'arounct
and a largo number of persons in the
room when the votes were being coun
ted off.
3. That no list of taxables wasfound
in the ballot. box, and no record was
kept or produced to show how many
persons voted.
4. That a large number Of votes
was received from persons with forged
naturalization papers, only one of
whom was sworn, and when they were
challenged, the challenges were' die.
regarded; that it Was impossible, un
der the circumstances, to ascertain
what was the truo• expression• of the
popular will. The committee are un
able to determine how many illegal
votes were received and counted in
this township, the respondent having
failed to call before thorn either the in
spectors or clerks of the election, and
no record having been found in the
ballot box, as required by law. When
it had been show on the part of the con
testant, that fraudulent votes had been
received, that the officers absolutely
refused to discharge their sworn duty,
and admitted every vote offered in
spite' of remonstrances and challenges,
the integrity of the return was at once

WASHINGTON, April 1, 1888.—The
Republicans are well satisfied with the
progress and .character of the day's
proceedings in the trial. The legisla
tion in both branches is practically sus
pended. The House met at noon, and
dispensing with the reading, after a
few sentences of the journal, went ita
mediatly over to the Senate. The at
tendance of members is daily decreas
ing. At the opening of the trial lir.
Sumner obtained the sense of the Sen
ate on the question Of the right of
Chief Justice to vote when the Senate
was equally divided, which was decid
ed in favor of Mr: Chase by 26 to 21.
The counsel for the President labored
strenuously to have the various con=
vorsations of Thomas ruled out, but in
alt eases they Were overruled either by
the Chief Justice or the Senatd.
Mr. *rleigh of Daltotah, finished
his testimony begun= - yesterday by re
lating that Thomas had declared that
ho should use force to get into the War
Department if necessary, and after
wards that his arrest by. civil authori
ties alone had prevented him. Stan
bery's Cross-examination of 'this wit
ness was of a higher order than that
of yesterday.
Samuel Wilkinson; thc:well-known
journalist, gives a very clear account
of an interview with Thomas and the
statements Of the latter on two occa
sions that, be-should call on Grant for
troops, and that ho did not see how
Grant could refuse. Evidence was at
tentively listened to by all present, and
the examination. of the next witness
gave rise to continued and' violent
