    The Huntingdon Journal.
Wednesday Morning, March 1, 1871.
It is not our purpose to write a history
of this important measure for the protec
tion of the laborer and the material man,
but to call the attention of the profession
and the Legislature to an important fea
ture in the bill presented by the Commis
sioners to Revise the Statutes, and to ex
hibit to them, what we consider an unfor
tunate distinction, which will take away
the advantage which this measure is de
signed to insure. We allude to that fea
ture in the bill which makes a widow's
claim for $3OO superior to the Mechanic's
Mr. Hall is the author of the bill, and
in section five, he presents the purpose of
the lien, thus :
"Sec. 5. The lien ABU have priority to all other
liens accruing after the commencement of the work
or the furnishing of the materials ; and the right of
a widow to retain the real estate of her husband
shall be inferior thereto."
This, we believe to be sound doctrine,
but the Committee appointed by the Leg
islature, at its last session, to examine and
suggest such changes as they found advis
able, :aped against the latter clause of
this section, and suggest that it be stricken
otit. They do this to conform to a decis
ion of the Supreme Court in Hildebrand's
Appeal, 3 Wright, 132.
This decision we consider the severest
blow at the mechanic and material man,
and consequently at the poor man, that has
ever been rendered by the Supreme Court,
and in following this stupid decision, the
Legislative Committee is not entitled to
very much credit for breadth of thought
or range of vision.
If we understand the Mechanics' Lien
Law, it is to protect the poor laborer, es
pecially, who cannot afford to loose his
slight earnings, so necessary to support his
family, against loss for work done or mate
terials furnished to the house of his poor
neighbor. In other words it is the only
protection and security the poor mechanic
has to induce him to work for his poor
neighbor in and about the erection of comfor
table quarters to shelter the latter from the
storm. Without such inducement he
could not be prevailed upon to do the
work. Thousands, yea tens of thousands,
of poor men undertake to build houses ,
without any money, knowing that the me
chanics will enter liens and wait until they
can pay, and thus towns and cities are
built up and the community at large bene
fitted, but take away the security thus af
forded, and the poor man's hope and salva
tion is torn from him. No one will labor
or furnish materials when it is known that
if any accident should befall the husband
the widow can step in and take everything,
and, consequently, the Mechanic's Lien
Law must become a dead letter.
Let us illustrate the matter for a mo
ment. A nabob owns lands on the out
skirts of a thriving village, and he is anx
ious to have part of them improved to en
hance the value of the remainder. He
meets a poor man, whom he knows to have
no means, and he tells him he will sell him
a lot upon which he can erect a house.
He does not want any money, but a judg
ment note for purchase money, is all that
he cares about, and he will give him any
-tenter -of time far payment. The poor
man, only too glad of the chance, accepts
and arranges with the mason, the carpen
ter, the plasterer, &c., to furnish the mate
rials necessary in their respective depart
ments, on conditions that they can enter up
liens, to build him a house. The house is
completed; the liens are entered up! One
fine morning report says the owner of the
house is dead. The widow claims $3OO
worth of property and she takes the house
and lot, after paying the nabob the pur
chase money on the lot, and the poor me
chanics or laboring men get nothing. The
rich man has a prior lien for purchase
money and he gets his pay; the poor man
must run a risk, and he might as well run
the risk without a Mechanics' Lien Law as
with one.
We hope that the Legislature will prc
tect poor men as soon, if not sooner, than
rich men, and that this section of the Me
chanics' Lien Bill will be passed as Mr.
Hall drew it. This law is of more value
to the poor man than any other law
upon the Statute book. It is emphatically
the Poor Man's Law. It protects one poor
mechanic and gives credit to the other.
Mechanics' liens are not entered up against
rich men. It is true that the widow ought
to be protected to some extent, but why
should the man who sells the little land
have a prior lien, and not the man that
builds the house ? Why make fish of one
and flesh of the other ?
Sir The Tennessee has arrived safely,
with the United States Commissioners on
board, at the Island of San Domingo.
There never was any good reason to sup
pose that the steamer was lost. In this age
of sensation newspapers, every thing is
seized upon as so much capital for these
frothy journals, and the San Domingo
party came in for its turn and share. It i
a practice that we loathe.
We hope that the Commissioners will
come back prepared to satisfy those squeam
ish people, who resist the acquisition of
a portion of this valuable island, that it
should be long to the United States with
the other islands composing the Great An
tilies. The continent of North America
should all be under one Government. This
is what it will come to in the end and the
sooner the goal is reached the sooner the
agony will be over. This inch by inch busi
ness is a slow process.
j„ The bill granting $20.000 to the
sufferers by the late fire at Mifilintown, Ju
niata county, having passed the Legisla
ture, has been approved by Governor
Geary, and is now a law.
This is right ! The object of Gov
ernment is to assist the unfortunate and
protect the weak as well for any other pur
pose. The soul of the man must be very
small who would object to the millions
contributing a mite to the few hundreds
■►ho have lost their all.
„ The horrible Prussian and French 1
war has at last ended. Peace negotiation
have been going on for some time. The
La France newspaper states that the pre
liminaries have been signed by the negoti
ators at Versailles, and are as follows :
First—the cession to Germany of the pro
vince of Alsace and a portion of Petite
Lorraine. Second—the dismantlement of
the fortress of Metz. Third—the pay
ment to Germany of the sum of two and
one-half millions of francs. The same pa
per also states that the armistice has been
prolonged till to-day.
M. Theirs is at the head of the Provis
ional Government established by the French
National Assembly and the government
gives pretty general satisfaction.

Our Washington correspondence.
WASHINGTON, D. C. Feb. 25, 1871
The great event of the week has been the
Grand Carnival, which, from its novelty,
its hugeness, its grandeur, and the wide
spread advertisement of its peculiarities,
had engrossed the attention of the resident
population of Washington, as well as that
of thousands at a distance, for months in
The Capital was thronged by crowds of
strangers, bent upon seeing all that was to
be seen, and throwing off dull care for the
time being. The arrangements and ap
pointments were controlled by the "King
of Misrule," yet, there was method in his
jollity, The disciples of "Divers Devil
tries" were abroad in full regalia, intent
upon burlesquing every popular or un
-popular questton of Congress,
courts, juries, corporation authorities, the
sixteenth amendment, and the hundred
and one topics now agitating the body pol
itic, were caricatured in the most ludic
rous manner. In all this, those moving in
every sphere of life took part, President,
Senators, Representatives, Judges, Minis
ters, the Literati, the Beau Monde, all
abandoned daily occupations to be either
actors or lookers-on in this wild revelry of
fun. Truly
little nonsense, now and then,
Is relished by the best of men."
On Monday and Tuesday nights, the
pyrotechnic displays were most brilliant.
Pennsylvania Avenue was ablaze, from
early dark 'till midnight. The sidewalks
were literally jammed, from the Capitol to
the Treasury Department, by gratified
spectators. The night programme furn
ished even more gratification than the day
light entertainment. But I cannot partic
ularize. It was our first National Carni
val. It will not be our last. The Capitol
shall not be removed. "huff sed."
On Monday, the anxiously awaited tele
gram was received, announcing the safe ar
rival of the United States Commissioners,
at San Domingo city, in the Republic of
Dominica. The fears, that the Tennessee
had been lost, were happily dispelled, and
a sudden relief from the agony of suspense
was at once experienced. A number of
distinguished correrpondents of the press
having accompanied the expedition, the
respective newspapers represented by them
contain lengthy communications, descript
ive of the incidents of the voyage ;
and of their first impressions
of country and inhabitants, as
they presented themselves on their arrival.
These letters, one and all, are interesting
and instructive. They should be read.
The House of Representatives has passed
the Senates bill, incorporating a company
to construct a railroad from a point on the
eastern boundary of the State of Texas to
the Bay of San Diego, California, on the
32d parallel of north latitude. This road
will be known as the South Pacific Rail
road, and will be the third line uniting the
valley of the Mississippi with the Pacific
coast. The House amended the bill so as
to only provide for a single trunk line, with
out any provision for lateral branches. No
subsidy was asked for by the friends of the
bill. A grant of land is made, but not a
dollar in bonds or money. This measure is
a concession to the rightful demands of
the South. The North and Central por
tion of the Union have secured a connection
with the Pacific, and why not give the
same advantage to the South, more partic
ularly as no demand is made upon the
Treasury in the shape of a present or pros
pective appropriation of money. The bill,
with House amendments, has been return
ed to the Senate. It will be acted upon
finally before adjournment.
In the Senate, the House bill to enforce
the rights of citizens of the United States,
under the fifteenth amendment, to vote in
the several States,is now under consideration
Its passage is resisted by the Democratic
Sentors, and as strenously advocated by the
Republican Senators. It contains nineteen
sections, and is amendatory of the act of
May 31, 1870. It provides for the ap
pointment, by the Circuit Judge of the U.
S. Court, of two supervisors of elections of
different politics in cities and towns having
over 20,000 inhabitants. It also authorizes
the U. S. Marshal to appoint deputy mar
shals to assist the supervisors of election.
No authority is given to call on the:milita
ry authorities. The main object of the
I bill is to guard the ballot-box from the
manipulations of repeaters and fraudulent
voters. It will operate to the disadvantage
of the Democracy in our large cities in
eneral, but in the city of New York in
The President, on Friday of last week,
sent to the Senate the nomination of John
A. McKee, of Lewistown, as Assessor for
the 17th District, in place of J. Sewell
Stewart, Esq., deceased ; and, on the same
day, the nomination was confirmed. The
selection for this vacancy was conceded to
your Representative, Hon. D. J. Morrell,
agreeably to a rule established by the Re
publican Senators anti Representatives
from Pennsylvania, at the outset of this
Administration. It was then mutually ar
ranged that, in the Districts represented by
Republicans, the members should control
the local appointments within their Dis
tricts. In this case, there were a number
of applicants, (some from your county,)
any one of whom would have discharged
the duties, with satisfaction to the public
and with credit to himself. It was emi
nently proper, under all the circumstances,
that Mr. Morrell should have the choice of
the man. His term of office is drawing to
a close. His• public duties have all been
discharged with distinguished ability, and
with great advantage to his constituents.
He will retire from Congress, possessing
the friendship and admiration of his col
leagues, even without distinction of party ;
but hid absence, in the XLIId Congress,
will be especially regretted by the Repub
lican representatives. It is meet, that such
a Representative should enjoy the full
measure of his rightful influence up
to the last hour of his official term.
A very general interest is felt through
out the country on the subject of the pas
sage of the bill to enable honorably dis.
charged soldiers and sailors, their widows
and orphans, to acquire homesteads on the
public lands. Your readers are familiar
with the character of the bill, as it passed
the House. The Senate Committee on •
Public Lands has reported the bill with
amendments, striking out the provision al
lowing the assignment of the homestead
certificate, and omitting the fourth section,
allowing entry of the land by an agent or
attorney. It is very probable that the bill
and proposed amendments may be referred
to a Committee of Conference. No one
can now predict in what shape it may fin
ally pass. It will be well, however, if the
grant be now made. No doubt, the next
Congress will remedy any defects in the
law. In this, as well as in all other acts
of legislation in which the welfare of the
soldier is involved, there should be shown
a liberality commensurate to his deserts.
Congress has passed a bill, establishing
a territoral government for the District of
Columbia. You are aware, that at present
the District comprises the cities of Wash
ington and Georgetown, and the county of
Washington, each having its own local gov
ernment. Under the territorial bill, just
passed, the District will be governed by a
Governor, appointed by the President, and
a Legislature, a part of the members of
which will be elected by the people and a
part appointed by the President. This
proposed change in the local government is
favorably received by a great majority of
the citizens of the District.
The President having approved the bill
prescribing the oath to be taken by H. V.
M. Miller, the Senator elect from Georgia,
his admission completes a full Senate of 74
members, representing 37 States.
The members of the House for the
XLIId Congress, who are not members of
the present House, are arriving. There
are one hundred new members, and one
hundred and forty-two who have been re
elected. It is supposed that the first ses
sion of the XLIId Congress will continue
for about six weeks.
A Kentucky Judge thinks the best
Kuklux bill that can be passed is the bill
allowing negroes to testify in the Courts.
He says: "Society needs to be rid of this
class of men (the Kukluxes) who are so
fast rendering the name of Kentucky a
synonym of lawlessness."
Over eleven thousand factories in the
United States are engaged in the manu
facture of pure Havana cigars, and the
supply always equals the large demand.
