Just the Best Evidence that They are
The Democratic papers all over the
State arc just now. praising lion. John
Scott and his associate diserganizers,
for the course they aro pursuing in
their efforts to defeat the Republican
county ticket. The Harrisburg Pa
triot, the State organ of the Democrat
ic party, is especially pleased with M.r.
Scott's conduct. Such friendship was
very damaging - to Andy Johnson when
he first attempted to disorganize •Lis
party-that had elected him, and it will
prove the same to Mr. Scott and his
political friends. Honest Republicans
know that, Democratic papers. never
spook well ofmn• earnest and reliable

be bonefitted by the conduct of the
disorganizors, and that is the reason
why' they are patting Mr. Scott and
others on the back 'and, givihg them
words of encouragement to keep up
the fight in our party. A Republican
can,only.pe sure he is right when,. De

fact that th'e Democrats are delighted

Letter from W. H. Woods, Esq.
MEisus. EDITORS :—I. was in hopes
that the proofs furnished last week,
showing that the candidates of the Re-,
pikblican , party.were fairly nominated,
. have- been sufficient, and that:
harmony would be restored to the par-.
ty, and that instead of quarreling
among ourselves we might unite to poll
a full vote for the State ticket.
When we produced a paper, signed
by -nearly all Abe - delegates' that nomi
nated the ticket, etuphatioldlydepylui
that they ever belonged td any secret
order, it ought to have satisfied every
fair, candid mind;' but these guerillas
are determinedthat they will not be
-convinced, no-difference what- proof is
As Mr.- Cremer j wi:ilk"ii issue
of his ga'ellilld r sheee, stili"iirigs upon
the same key, I' am
.fbrced to do,•in
justice to myself, to the. party, and its
nominees, what 1 would avoid if 1
could, viz: making expoSures of who
do- belohg to the' secret order, called
the "People's League." Dr. Henry
s and' George W. Johnston are
the ring leaders of the League, as well
as the prime movers in the present at
tempt to disorganize'Jhe Republiean
'party; and this is not the, first-time
these m,eir have played .gucrilla', as 1
will .show. That the people may tin:
"derstand the true position of affairs, I
will go back' a leW years and see Who
have been controlling the party and
who,have held its offices.. lii looking
over the political field we find that the
present disorganizers or Leaguers have
made till the•nominations and held all
the offices, with very few exceptions,
for the last twelve orffiteen years, and
we will also find that whenever an
honest man did break through their
ring and get the, nomination, these
same men did their utmost to defeat
his election. In 'the year 1858 It B.
Wigton wits nominated for the Lords
lature. After' he was miminateehe
met W. 13. Zeigler, of Huntingdon, who
at that time belonged to the League
but afterwards left it, who informed
Mr. Wigton that there was a secret po•
laical organization in this county, arid
he found that Mr. Wigton did not-be
' long to it; that he did not know whe
ther the order would fight him or not,
but would tell him in a couple of
weeks. He afterwards informed him
.that'the order had concluded not to
oppose him. Mr. IVigton was elected.
The next year, 1859, Mr. Wigton was
again nominated, after it fierce con
test with the "ring," or "People's
League," as they now call it. In can
vassing Jackson township that fall,
Mr. Wigton called upon a leading man
there who was his friend, who told him
that they had a secret order in the
county and he was very sorry to find
that ho did not belong to it, but that
he was determined that it should not
hurt him in Jackson township. This
man kept his word; in Jackson town
ship Mr. Wigton was not cut, but was
cut to pieces in the other townships
of the upper end, where the "ring"
could do it. I have R. B. Wigton's
permission to make this statement.—
We thus have the proof- that this se
cret order was at work previous to
1858, and was so powerful at that time
that quietly it could defeat the mem
ber for Legislature.
This "ring," or "People's League"
as they now call it, had its own way
after that until 1865, when Ephraim
Baker was nominated. He broke
their "ring," and, like they did with
Mr. Wigton, they tried to defeat him,
hut failed. The next year, 1866, they
nominated a full ticket of the Leaguers
and all went well. In 1867. Dr. Hen
ry Qrlady, Chief Sachem of the League,
was a candidate for the State Senate,
and was defeated in the nomination by
Samuel ,chitty. The wrath of the
Leaguers was now aroused, and Mc.
Vitty must be and Was defeated. The
next year, 1868, D. 11 P. Neely broke,
their "ring" for Sheriff. It is still
fresh in the recollections of' the party
*hat lies they circulated and what et.
forts they made to defeat him. They
had it secret committee in every,town
ship secretly to give out tickets against
Neely. The people were too Watchful
for them, and Neely was eleand.—
This fall the peoplein their might have
pretty effectually broken. their "ring,"
and they have become desperate and
are willing to resort to any desperate,
bold measures to defeat the whole tic
ket. And since' they find that 'the.,
people have been fighting their-secret
order and are determined it shall-be)
crushed, they have the bold hardihood
and brazen effrontery to turn round
and charge upon the present nothinces
of the Republican party and their
friends, that they belong to the' very'
order their unscrupulous disorganizers
have been running for years. For
years-these bold, unprincipled ' demo
goguos have run the Republican party
and held all the offices, and whenever
their secret "ring " hits been broken,
they. have played the guerilla, We
ask the honest voters of the party, who
has ever played guerilla except - those
who are playing it now ? What can
didate nominated by this secret "ring"
has ever been defeated ? Bat it is time
that this was stopped, and that these
oath-bound Leaguers were taught that
the Republican party was not gotten.
up for their especial benefit.
We will now take a hasty glance at
the political records of the ring leaders
of this secret oath-bound "ring," who
assert that they wish to purify the
publican party. If their visit is genii•
ine, let them leave the party; it will
then become pure. The following iffli

community for his moral integrity and
uprightness, will show what kintlof
