Presumption. A Froe Trado can

apparent for evon fools to overlook.
Straddling; Work. From the in
ternal fuss soma fellows havo boon
making for the past ten days, and the
long faces worn by othcru long
enough to cat oats out of an upright
churn it is pretty evident thut all
havo heard from Maine The baltlo
was a severo one. The loss on ttio
Radical sida is nenrly 10,000 since
1870 four thousand a yoar I This Is
enough ol a loss to bankrupt uny ordi
nary firm.

Scofiold's speech covored tho first

No father, would over want his son to
follow in Scofiold's tracks. In 1872,
wbilo making a speech at Girard,
Erie county, somo tellow in the crowd
inquired of him what his "swig'

then remarked that the words were
too French, he did not know what tho

Tho- lordly rulers of the Republican
party havo at lust come to grief. .Ho
viously disappointed at tho wisdom dis
played by tbo Democratio party in the
nomination of General II uncock lor
President, they at onco determined to
break him down by the most bitter
assaults. Thoy began with tho Sur-
ratt businoss and that fell flut npon
tho country and died of its own weight
Then thoy tried his soldior record, but
Goncral Sherman promptly said "write
down anything you pleuso about (ion
oral Hun cock an a soldier and a gen
tleinan, and I will chcorlully sign it.'
Next they succeeded in blinging to
light tho Sherman letter written about
tho timo of tho Hayes fraud, and that
was found to be a most patriotio papor
worthy tho best days and ablest cili
Eon of tho Republic. And last, foiled
in ovory attompt to destroy tho char
acter of tho Democratio candidate,
and turn back the tide of success that
is setting in, they raised the cry of
general bankruptcy, Southern claims,
Rebel pensions and such a condition of
universal ruin as would send tho coun
try to genorul smash.
In answer to a letter upon this sub
ject, found olsowhoro in this puper,
General Hancock puts un effectual
quiotuB upon tho wholo subject, and
we doubt ifuny one will bo so far gono
on tho way to lunacy as to beliove any
moro of tho silly stories of tho Repub
licans af tor reading this letter. It is
tho instructive and spontaneous utter
auco of a patriotic man giving ex
pression to the honest indignation of
his soul at tho baro thought that ho
or tho Domocratio party could provo
so falso to tho principles of patriotism
and loyalty to tho country.
It will givo additional security to
tho country In tho just conclusion that
at last a statesman will bo called to
tho front ono who will summon his
great abilities for the administration
of tho Government in tho interest of
all the pcoplo of every section of our
beloved country.
To our mind thcro will bo no moro
inquiries about tho opinions of Goncral
Hancock on puhlio questions, and his
last letter is the brightest gleam of
statesmanship that has yet appeared,
and will gladden the hearts of millions
of our pcoplo as it is read all over our
August Belmont, the great Now
York Hanker, was made President
of tho monstor Hancock meeting
held in that city, on tho 23d inst.,
when and whero 40,000 torches were
counted, and it took three hours to
pass a certain point. Such a procossion
was never witnessed in America.
Mr. Belmont, on tiiking tho chair,
among other things, said: "Why was
it that tho Foderal dobt could not be
fundod at a loss rato of intorest than
six and seven porcontum ? And
just as soon as tho Democrats got con
trol of Congress, the intorest on the
debt camo down to FOUR por cont.;
and siucoour friondsbavogotcontrolof
tho Sonato, millions of tho debt has
been negotiated for THREE AND
ONE-HALF. Why was that not
done before tho Democrats came into
in tho Legislative branch of tho Gov
ernment, and tho burthens of tbo tax
payers cased up to the amount of mil
lions of dollars annually?"
Tho conundrum pntby Mr. Belmont,
is ono to which we call the attontion
of Judge McEnally, Messrs. Murray,
Harris, and other Radical orators.
Tho question raised by Mr. Belmont
is very simple but highly important to
tho tax-payers who havo had millions
of their money stolen by the excessive
interest Imposed npon thorn by the
Radical leaders in the past eighteen
Blaini Explains. The overthrow
of tho Radicals in Maine, was not only
a great surpriso, but a crushing blow
to bonalor Blaine. On Tuesday (the
day after the election) Blaino sent tho
following dispatch from Augusta to
Genoral Garfield. How tho General
enjoyed it has not boon reported. Hero
is tho document :
"The Bet reeultof ysstordav's election aaaoarlr
aa ean be aletsd at thli bonr (2 P. M. Tuesday,)
it about aa followa t The Republicans have car
ried the First, Second and Third Congressional
distrlets, while the Fosionists bare earrled tbe
Fonrlb and Fifth. The Republican, bar oar-
rlcd both branches of the Legislature by a strong
majority, reaching perhaps Iwo-lblrds f each ua the popular rote lor Uovsrnor. Deris
and Plalated hare each over 73,000 votes, with the
probabilities or I'letsted eotniog out a few hun
dred, perhaps a tboosand ahead. Tbe result Is
undeniably a surprise to aa Bad eoaally to aee
the mass of tbe Democratic party la Maine. Oar
canvass waa never more accurately tatteB and It
showsd OB Wednesday a total vote for Davis of a
trifle over 70,000, with an assured majority of 6,.
000 as the minimum. In tbe four days preoodiag
me eieetioa we lost aver votes by mean s
well known to the managers of the aatlonal Dem
oeralle Bampeiin. and wbiek do not eall for
further speciAoalioa from me. The total rota
cast Is variously estimated at from 75,000 to 100r
e, ana toe money all came from beyond the
State. Such scenes were never before witnessed
IB Maine. J. U. Blaiub."
Tho sun struck Sonator has boon
telegraphing ever sinoe the loss of his
State, bnt it won't straighten out. The
loss of 10,000 since 1870 is a sovore
blow to Blaine, Frye, Hale k Co.
Nearlt Flopping. Col. Bob lngor-
soll is nearly converted. He aays :
"The game now stands four to four,
and Hancock has the deal." Bob
knows the dealer has two chanceso
the other fellow's One. Col., you will
never have as fine a chanco to flop on
tho right side of human affairs as now.
i -1 j
No You Don't I One of the amus
ing things about the result in Maine is
the charge of the Republicans that tho
FuBiomsla carried tbe election by fraud.
This does not come with good grace
from a party which stolo tbe President
and then rowardod the thieves. We
wait for bolter reason.
Chairman Cessna, in one of bis pri-
vato circulars to his Radical party
friends, stated that a large number of
persona "voted through their eyee"
lacking all other intelligence. We
wonder whethor those follows down
in Maine saw It that way ?

A dispatch from Now York, dated
September, 25th, says: Tbo declara
tion of Goncral Daniel E. Sickles, who
has hitherto been an activo Republi
can, and was Minister to Spain under
Grant, of bis intention to support Gen.
Hancock, was the subjoct of much
comment in political circles yoBtcrday.
At the National Democratio Uoadquar
tors Genoral Sickles's accession to tho
Democracy was considered of great
value. Tho gonoral boliof among the
Democrats was that the General's dec
laration would bring to Hancock's
support thousands ol soldiers who serv
ed in tho army of tho Potomac, and
who havo hithorto actod with tho Re
publican party. Some Republicans,
who are not activo politicians, regard
Gonoral Sickles's withdrawal from tho
Repulican party as a very damaging
blow. They oponly oxpross tho opin
ion that his admitted ability as a po
litical manager should not bo lost to
tho Republicans, and thoy fear his in
fluence with the veteran Union soldiers.
General Sickles said, that ho was a
candidato for no office Ho should
vote for General Hancock, because ho
bolievod that tho country would bo
entirely safe under an administration
of whioh he was the head, He had
not dotormincd whether ho would tako
an activo part in tho campaign or not.
Genoral Sickles was in command of
tho Third Corps at Gettysburg, and
lost his leg thero. On tho following
day Gonornl Hancock also fell dospor
ately wounded just as his corps had
rcpulsod Longstroet recently appoint
ed by President Hayes as Ministor to
Turkey and won tho great bottlo.
Impudent. Most of tboso Credit
Mobilier statesmen aro coming to tho
surface in the Interest of De Golyor
Garfield. Even Colfax has tho Impu-
doneo to bark occasionally in the inter
ost of his soiled confederate Tho
Philadelphia Itccord hits ono of those
soiled doves this kind of a clip :.
lion. O leant W. Hcslleld, who was one of the
Pennsylvania statesmen whoso liRbt waa dark
ened by tbe Credit Mobilier eclipss. It again
beaming on tbe bcrison. He waa last beard
from at Emporium, Cameron oounty, la the edge
oi ine wilderness.
Our ox Representative was tricked
by Oakos Amos's French words, Cred
it Mobilier. Ho had tho audacity to
tell a respectable audienco in Eric
oounty that he did not know what tboso
words meant, when at the timo tho
wholo audienco saw tho stock papers
sticking out of his pockets.
Goinu Up. Last year tho Demo
crats polled 2,853 votes at tho primary
oloction. This year it runs up to 8,05!)
on Assembly; Prothonotary, 3,510
Register k Rocordcr, 3,515; and on
Surveyor, 3,402. This shows that tho
Democrats aro awake to surrounding
evonts. Moro: Tho result of last Sat
urday a week shows another fact.
Over ono third of all tho votors in tho
oounty patronized tho primary. Tho
Registry list in the Commissioners'
offleo shows that thoro aro 10,018
votors in tho county, abont 8,600 of
whom wore at the primary.
Let us IIavi it. Now that G
Hancock has gratified the curiosity of
the Radical journals with another let
ter it in order for those journals,
especially those pretentious organs of
protection, tho Philadelphia Prus and
the Pittsburgh Diipatch, to demand of
Gonoral Garfiold that he furnish for
publication hit oorrespondonce with
the British Free Trado Cobdon Club
at the time of his election as an hon
orary member of that Association.
Tin West End. Tho "Copper
beads" of Brady and Bloom townships
gathered at Ponnville on last Saturday
evening, and there Joined bands with
Curwonsvillo, Pike, Lumber City and
the Greenwooditos, and tboy had ono
of the biggoat jamborees that the Gram
pian Hills ever hoard of. Mr. Krobs
and Col. Barrett did the orating, and
one brass and five martial bands furn
ished the mnsic.

fied by tho Convention.

After the first ballot waa taken, and
the Chairman having announced that
mere was no nomination, Dr. l'olier,
of Karthaus, moved that the Rule
(XIII.) roquiringsix successive ballots
be taken before any candidato could
bo dropped, be suspended, and pro
ceed to the second ballot. Tho mo
tion waa unanimously agreed to and
the Convention proceeded to a second
ballot, dropping the name of Mr. Dick
enson, who had the lowest vote This
ballot showed that Kirk and Mays
wore a tie, and Rule XIII. was again
brought into requisition, because it re
quires in caso of a tie voto in Conven
tion that tbe candidate having the
lowest popular vote should bo dropped.
A glance at tho rctnrns showed that
Mr. Mays was off, and tho balloting
for Prothonotary proceeded as above

Tho next business in order was origi

ollered by Mr. Moore oamo up, and af
ter several ballots were had thoreon,
they woro finally adopted. They read
as follows :

Mr. Stewart then offered the follow
ing: r?eioleeil, That tleerge II. Hall, af Lawrence
township, is hereby appointed Representative
delegate to the next liemocratlo Bute Conven

tend himself.
Tho resolution was agreed to unnni

tlitoUed, That Dr. J.W. Potter, of Covington,
James L. Leery, of ClearOeld, and John K.
White, of Osceola, be selected aa OengreSMonal
Conferees to meet with tho other Conlerses ol this
District, and naino a Democratic candidate for
Congrees in ths XXth Congressional District.
Mr. Moore moved to amend1 the res
olulion, by adding tho name of John
F. Weaver fop one of tho gentlemen
named in tbo priginal. Alter somo
wrangling over it, together with ad
vice from tho rcur, tho nmendmant
wus withdrawn '.and the resolution
adopted without debate.
Mr. Flynn then offered tho billowing
resolution :
rVfsoI.eir, Thai A. W, Wallers, ct Clearfield,
Winleld 8. Luther, of Brady, and lllraia Wood
ward, of Huston, era hereby sppninted Sena
torial Conferees to mset like Conferees from Cen

Senatorial delegate to tha Boat Democratic State
Convention with power te substitnte.
Tho resolution was adopted. At
this point lomo member moved that
Jacob F. Steiner, of Decatur, George
Weaver, of Clearfield, and James W.
McGhoe, of Bell, bo appointed a Com
mitteo to wait upon the nominees and
inform them of wbnt happened, and
bring them before tho Convontion.
Tho motion was agreed to, and it was
but a short timo until all woro on
hand. Each nominee was introduced
to tho Convention by Chairman Stei
ner, and a common senso speech made
by all of them. At the conclusion ol
tho remarks mado by tho nominees,
Chairman Uurchfleld arose and return
ed thanks to the Convention for the
confidence Imposed In him by his re
election. On motion ol John Smith, the Con
vontion adjourned sine die, with throe
boarty choers for Hancock and the
whole ticket.
John's Mistake. John Sherman
said in a recent spooch : " Thoro wore
no Republicans in tho Rebel army ;
no, not one." Ho forgot his friends
Longstreet and Moshy, who are cred
ited with having fought on that side.
In tho present campaign, they both
voto as thoy shot.
General Grant announce that he is
coming East. Why didn't be come
before tho election in Maine T He
hould have helped to boom the thing
up down there weeks ago.
Election, held Saturday,
From the hour when the first report
of tho Maine election wus flashed over
tho wiro, there has been no timo when
the result could possibly bu viewed in
any other light than that of a most
dislicurtchingdclunlol tbo Reiiiiblicans.
Even when it was confidently as
serted that Davis had been re elected
by a plurality of a fow hundred votes,
thn Republicans were coinpeRod! to
confess a loss of about 15,000 votes as
compared with tho corresponding elec
tion 01 tne lust, rrcsiuciiuui year.
On this melancholy and demoraliz
ing exhibit tbo ltudicals stimulated hi.
litrity which was less creditublo to
their courage than their sense. Their
organs mado a stout effort to keep up
tho failing moralo of tho Republican
masses, and somo of their committees
hired batteries to (ire salutes thus
jubilating over such a loss in Maine as,
u mnlctica in other Kepuolican iStales,
will leave tho party so fur out in tho
cold ol chill November that it will
havo littlo bopo of ever getting back
to its old pnsseiuinns.
Wbilo tho result was in doubt, tho
Poft did not doom it best to harrow up
tbo Radical mind with frequent allu
sions to the disaster that had befallen
their parly. Wo were willing that
tho unhnppy brethren should guthcr
such scant crumbs ol consolation as
their gloomy outlook afforded. And
even their asinine performance of
firing 200 guns over their disaster clie
ited nothing tincharitablo or unkind.
Hut now that tho election of Gen
Plaislod is conceded, we feel that it is
quito timo to remind the Republicans
of their folly, and to say that tho full
import ol tho Fusion victory in Maino
bus never been exaggerated. No ono
doubts that Hancock is stronger than
Plaistcd with tho voters oftlio Pino
Treo Stale No man doubts that
Maine is lost to Garfield. It is equally
evident to sagacious politicians of all
parlies that tho Radical loss in this
preliminary strugglo foreshadows the
fate of that party in the gonoral en
gagement on tho 2d of November.
I I'dsTiiiirjf on rost.
Down in Maine. Tho Now York
Sun, in alluding to what happened
rccontly away down East, remarks :
"Because of the delinquencies of tho
Republican newspapers and orators,
tho rank and file of that party aro
likoly to miss tho roal point of tbo
Maine election.
"We havo looked into half-a-dozen
loading Republican journals in as many
Wostorn States, and wo find that on
the morning of tho election in Maine
they prodictod a majority for Davis
for Govornor of from 12,000 to 15,000.
It is evident from the tonoof the news
papers that thoy had received thoir
impressions from Blaine At tho East
tbo Republicans near tho close of the
contest becamo more moderate in thoir
anticipations. But oven here and in
Now England the leaders of opinion
in tho party claimed a majority ol
botwoon 6,000 nnd 0,000. J ust before
the election that gorgeous blower,
Mnjor-Goncral Jndson J. Kilpntrick,
lresh from the stump In Maino, assured
tho Now Jorsoy Republicans that Ia
vis would get a majority of 12,000.
"These glowing prophooies have
como to naught. Tho tido sols strong,
ly in the opposite direction. Tho terri
ble disaster in Maino at tho September
contest will be followed by the defeat
of the Garfield electoral lickot in No
vomber. Now Hampshire tools tho
shock ; and the granilo ribs of tho
party in that State are likoly to yield
to the pressure. Connecticut did pot
nocd tho inspiration of a victory in
Maino to mako It snro for Hancock. I
"So much for New England. But
it is at tho West that tho results in
Maino will prodtico tho greatest otfect.
Tboy will certainly givo Indiana to
tho Democrats in Oclobor, and they
will probably cause a Republican do
feat on tho same day In Ohio; while
Pennsylvania on the East and Illinois
on tho West will be apt to follow the
example of their neighbors in Novem
ber." Cabinet Marino. The Washing
ton 1'ott pnts it in this way: "The
first important duty devolving upon
President Hancock after his inaugura
tion will be the formation of a Cabinet.
Considerable interest will attach to his
selections, which, wo feel authorized to
annonnco, Gen. Hancock will mnke

No record shows plainer Iho ex
trurnguncu of Iho Republicans than
their course in this Slutu for the twen
ty years Ihey have been in power.
The oflleiul figures prove, thut ill this
time, tho ordinary expenses of Iho
State government havo been increased
from ?';70,074, tho lust year the Dem
ocrats were in power, to 11,332,383,
tho lust year of Ilartruitfl's adminis
tration. In this timo tho salaries of
tho State officers, of every description,
have boon increased from Governor
down to tido-wator. Wo naino a few
ol tho offices, below, to show tho in
crease; and for purposes of compari
son will take tho year 1850, tho last of
Govornor Faokor, and 1879, tho last of
Governor Hurtrunft. In this time not
only huvo sultiries of ull kinds been
ruised, sometimes us much us two or
thrco hundred per cent., but all ex
penses, incidenlal to tho conduct of
the State government, have been cor
respondingly increased. Let tho tax

Theso figures are a sample of tbo
increase in salaries and expenses of ull

become a very expensive affair instoad
of the inexpensive thing of 1859, in

when their salaries were much lower.

They further direct special attention
to tho fact that this chorgo lias been

furu is mado in all seriousness and
maintained with great earnestness and
repeated day after day in the press and

To Theodore Cook, Esq., Cincinnati,

that you aro disturbed about thnt bug
bear, Southern war claims. The peo
ple cannot bo mislead by iL To sup
poso thnt rebel claims or claims in the
interest of persons who were in tho
Rebellion can in any soy or in any
degree be countenanced, is an imputu
tion of disloyalty such as used to be
made against Democrats, even when
they were in arms delondingtho coun
try. So fur as it touches me, 1 do
nouncc it. Tho Government can nev
er pay a debt or grant pension, or re
ward of any sort for waging war upon
its own existence, nor could I bo in
duced to approve or encourage the
paymont ot such debt, pension or re
ward. Nobody oxpects or wants such
unnatural action. To propose it would
bo an insult to the intelligence and
honor of our peojdo. When the Re
bellion was crushed Iho heresy of se
cession in every form and in every in
cident went down forever. It is a
thing ot tho post. Wo move forward,
not backward. Jt 1 were t'rosident,
I would veto all legislation which
might come bedim nie providing for j
the consideration or payment ol claims i
of any kind for losses or damages by
persons who were in tho Rebellion,
whether pardoned or not. In relation
to Union war claims the Government';,
obligations to its defenders como lirsl.
Thev aro lusting and sucted. Tbo
public luws of civilized nations do not
in general, recognize claims for injuries
to properly resulting lrom tho opera
lions of war. Novcrlholcss our Gov
ernment has treated with groat indul

ges suffered by Union men from mili
tary operations of tbe wur of tho Union.
nut as hostilities were closed moro
than fifteen years ago, claims of that
nnlure, now mostly in tho hands of
persons other than tho original suffer
ors, are becoming stale and in my
judgment might tuirly bo considered
as barred by the lapse ol tune anil it
hereafter entertained at all should bo
