Sinco our Ceneua KiiutnoraUiin uu
noun ceil our population na being 43,
we have hud it ' cheeked up to uu"
by some ot our old coach neighbor,
that our Jlnumerutora had made a lih-
erul calculation of our population, bo
caurio it happened to bo bo far beyond
their caleution. ' We now have square
proof that wo have at leant 2,000 raoro
population than tho Enumerators fix
ed it at in Juno. Above wo produvo
tho work ol thirty-olght AnncsnorH, dif
ferent men discharging other duties,
and yot, wheu wo use tho same figures
(4j) on tho list of voters (10,018) that
wo employed on tho number of taxa
ble inhabitant, tho result ia a popula
tion of 45,028. This rci-ult is ponitivo
proof that tho Census Enumerators'
work fulls short of that made by the
AsHemiors on tho firhl of September.
Tbo same result also shows that tho
population of this borough by tho rule
should bo over 2,000.
The Political Outlook. In these
times of excitement it is an interesting
thing just now to study tho political
problem from tho standpoint of past
events A earoful review of tho man
ner in which tho States have voted on
President roveals this information In
regard to those States whoso votes aro
considered most important in deciding
the Presidential qicstion. Maine lias
voted 0 times for t.io 'jemocratio par
ty and 0 times against; New York,
12 for and 8 against ; New Jersey, 10
for and 10 against; Connecticut, 4 for
and 1C against; Pennsylvania, 13 for
and 7 ngainst; Ohio, 9 for and 10
against; Indiana, 10 for and G against,
aud Illinois, 10 lor and 5 against In
the present contest it is reasonably
oerlain that these States may bo fairly
placed in the dchatahlo column, and
tho contest will bo waged in them by
both parties with all the deturmina
tion and energy inspired by the hope
of success. It will bo Been that Penn
sylvania lias voted oltener fur tho
Democratic ticket than against it, and
hor vote, we believe, has always been
roconlod in favor of tho succcsslnl can
didate. "As goes Pennsylvania, eo goes
tbo Union," ia likely to bo verified this
time, and unless the present tide should
receive a disastrous chock by the Oc
tober election, the old Keystone of tho
Federal arch will wheel into lino and
cast her electoral vote for the soldier
hrj h : "Tho centennial ot the buttle ol
King's Mountain, South Carolina, will
bo celebrated with much spirit on the
tUb, Tth and SUi of October. Students
of colonial history will remember that
this was one of tho most brilliant vic
tories of the Revolutionary struggle.
Tho Uritish, under Mojor Ferguson,
lost 210 men out of a total of 800.
Most of tbo aurvivora were captured.
Their commander was among the alain.
On tho first day of the celebration
there will be a sham fight under Gen
oral Joseph E. Johnston, to illustrate
the real action, the troops being taken
from theCarolinas, Virginia and Tenn
essee. On the 8th there will be a com
petitive drill, open to contestants from
the same States, to, be conducted by a
band of United States army officers,
who will award a centennial rn-ino to
tho victors." .
To Tiif. Point. An oxchangc says :
"Roscoo Conkling'a bloody shirt har
angue in New York is meeting with
decided opposition from papers of bis
party like the Now York Timet and
Evening Post. Tho party ought to bo
driven from this driveling nonsense
abouttho South, and beinduced to look
at things in their right light, but it is
not likely to be in this campaign. With
a candidate with a foul record, which
they cannot defend, they have nothing
loft but to flaunt the bloody shirt and
preach the gospel of hato, and they
aro doing it with ol will; but it has
got stale and unprofitable, and is driv
ing thousands from the party. The
people want fraternity and prosperity,
and they are turning to the Demo
crats as the only sourco from which to

If tho editor of the aloresaid organ
will condescend to inquire of those
persona who wore present at both
meetings, ho will learn this faot: On
Tuesday evening Pie's Opera House
was filled chock full, a largo meeting
was hold in tho Court room, while hun
dreds of pooplo were on the streets and
in tho hotels, stores, offices, ot. Hut
on Wednesday night everybody was
in tho Court room. How is that for
putting "in the shade?"
A Veteran. We notice that a
Democratic meeting at Monroo. Kav-
ctto county, Pa., on Saturday a-woek,
was presided over by Col. Benjamin.
Brownflcld, aged 101 years, who said
In tho course of his speech: "I novcr
missed a Presidential oloelion. I voted
twice for Jefferson, twice for Madison.
twice for Monroo, and three times for
also for Polk, Cass, Pioroe, Buchanan,
IJniiglaa, Meridian. Seymour, (irceler
and Tilden. And I hone to lira in
voto for General Hancock ; and as the
result of my long exporlonce I would
advlso yon to Tote for him too."
"Immcnsol" is what the Radtlaln
call their torchlight procession. Wo
object to"Chiistian statesmen" using
mil term : because it is not true The
election roturna will show that these
men have prevaricated, if they have not

OCR TICKET COMPLKTK.
At our must head thin week will bo
found the full Dcinot ratie ticket, from
President ot the United Statu duwn to
County Surveyor. Tha nomination of
ox-Governor Cui tin fur Congress com
pletes the list.
We ailupt tho views of the editor of
the Clinton Democnit in relation to tho
nominee fttr Congress. Ilusuys: "It
will be seen by reference) to the proceed
ings of the Congressional Conference
found elsewhere in this issue, that Hull.
Andrew U. Curtin, of BellelViiite, has
been nomh.tted tor Congress in this
Twentieth district. In tho nominee
wo have a gentleman fitted for the
position in s high degree. Long ex
perience iu public life has given him
advantages that will make his presence
a atrength to tho councils of tho peo
ple., and his life long residence among
tho people ho is to represent makes
him tho best of representatives for tho
citizens of his district; while his ser
vices as Governor fully acquainted him
with tho people and resources and
wants ot tho whole State, uud the in
terests of Pennsylvania would be guard
ed by him with a fidelity and intelli
gence cqnul to tho best.
"As a Democrat, Mr. Cuitin bus beeni
working in every campaign oiuee 1872.
lie was long in the lead of the many
eminent men who are forsaking the
Radical party now and raging under
the banner of Dcmocrucy with Huu
oock as their leader. Ho left his party
when it was strong, and surrendered
high position to follow the lead of his
principles. It was long ere ho up
peured as a candidate, aud then ho was
pressed forward by leading men of tho
State, including the candidate for Gov
ernor, tho Chariman of tho State Cen
tral Committee, tho lute ex Governor
Bigler and others, and even the noblu
Democratic leader, Hon. Thomas A.
Hendricks), camo into his district to
announce his satisfaction at the nomi
nation. During the campaign of 1878,
when an extraordinary condition ex
isted iu tho thrco principal counties ot
bis district a condition that does not
exist now, and will not again soon
unmindful of himself, he submitted
promptly to tho orders of the Stuto
Committee aud went nut to do battle
lor tho Democratic candidHto for Gov
ernor. Then a great wrong was in
flicted upon him aud the parly dis
graced itself by defeating him and plac
ing e mere non entity in the plate
where they ought to bavo put him.
Now there is au opportunity to right
that wrong by electing him to Con
gress. That it will be dono, wo are
oon6tlciit. Tho experience of tho past
will conflno tho candidate's efforts to
his own district. He will bo Been and
hoard in all parts of it, and tho result
will be a handsomo majority for An.
drew G. Curtin in November."
Not all Bkiots. Occasionally thoro
comes to tho surface a Radical leader
who is the proprietor of something
more than bigotry. Hero is a case in
point: General Adam E. King, who
sorved with Hancock during tho war
and baa since been a prominent Ropub-
lican official in Baltimore, publishes a
letter in the Baltimore American, say
ing that no man in Maryland entor
tains a more sincere regard for Gen.
Hancock than ho does, but that ho is
a Republican and will vote for Garfield.
In answer to tho Insinuations of politi
cal brawlers that the Republican sol
dier who speaks well ot a Democratic
fellow soldier is to be suspected, Gen.
King Bays: There aro individuals so
narrow-minded that they are unable to
comprehend how a man can bo loyal
to his party without becoming a social
hermit or bating all who honestly dif
fer from him. Those who prefer such
a lop-sided existence aro welcome to
thciriarrow-gaugo road ; I cannot
travel with them. Politics do not
govern my personal friendships, It
seems to me quite possiblo to admire,
respect and liko a political opponent
and yot fight him on tho hustings and
at tha polls. It will bo a sorry day
for any community and, for special
reasons, our own fair city and Stuto
when party fealty and party standing
must bo determined by our capacity
to abuso and malign our fellow-citizens
whoso views antagonize our own."
"A RmiEL Yell." Tho Richmond,
(Va.) Dirpatch says : "Gen. Hancock's
lottcr doclaring what will bo his policy
in regard to Southern war claims, if.
ho should be elected President, is a
model of outapokon candor. Ho does
not minee matters at all. Ho will pen
sion no rebels, pay no rebel claims, and
will aorutinizo all the claims of the
Unionists of tho South, which last are
ho old that they might bo outlawed
Good for Hancock. Ho is a second
Bismarck. This latter statesman is
said to have deceived all tho diploma
tists of Europe by simply telling the
truth iu bia negotiations. Hancock
confounds his enemies by simply speak-
ing out with plainness and boldness.
Stub a man can't bo defeated. Hur
rah for Hancock I"
Hancock's One Fault. An old fel
low by tho name of Fraly, who lives
in Helena, Aikansas, and who has been
a life-long Republican, and belongs to
the Grand Army of tho Republic, Is an
ardent admiror of Hancock, undor
whom bo served through tho war. He
said tho other day that he could not
find it in his heart to vote against him,
but that ho had Ono lault ho don't al
ways speak the truth. "IIo rushed to
the head of our regiment at Chancel-
lorsville," said the old man, "and urg.
ed n forward, Baying, 'Como on, bov
don't bo alrniil. There's no danger.'
But I'll plodgo you my word, gentle
mon, wo lost thirty men out of my
own company in that alnglo charge."
A ProfoundOpinior. Anoxchango
remarks: "Don Cameron has sufficient
ly recovered from the terrlblo shock
he roccivod at Chicago to express th
opinion that Garfield can afford to lose
Ohio and Indiana, and be aloctod by a
majority of (tco rotes, provided New
York, Now Jorscy and Connecticut all
go against Hancock. This is the most
hopeful view of a doomed party that
has yot Been tho light."
Blaine on the Wino. Blaine spoke
at Pittsburgh and than moved on to
Ohio and Indiana to explain to tho
Buckeyes and Hoosicrs how that ter
rible alip tip in Maine took lilaco and
to prepare thorn for tha Democratic
deluge that Is sure to overwhelm thorn
in October. Blaine and Maine Is not
good music to Radical cars nut West.

ABAXHO.X TIIK W'AH
IFmia the Nat. Yuik liii.ee (Hep.), Sept. 14, '!).
Gen. Hancock bus written a very
Trunk and explicit loiter on tho ques
tion ol rebel war claims. If he hail
kindly ut copies of it to the various
oiutois who ticukd tbo question lit
the Tuiitiiiuny meeting on Thursday,
he might have saved litem much em
barrassment. IIo says: "If I were
President I would veto all legislation
which might enme before mo prof id
ing for tho consideration or payment
of claims of any kind fur losses or dam
uges by persons who were in rebellion,
whether pardoned or nut." THIS IS
CONCLUSIVE SO FAR AS HK IS
CONCERNED. It does not sneuk
behind a forced construction of tho
fourlueulh amendment, but declare
his personal purpose in regard to legis
lation which tho amendment does not
cover. Tho assuranco which bo glvcB
does credit to bis honesty and bis in
dependence, and is one which every
intelligent citizen, whatever his poli
tics, will rejoice to receive. The coun
try can now devote its attention to
other and graver issues between tbo
two parties, ol which there is no luck,
and as to which the position of Gen.
Hancock is completely identified with
that of bis party.

ot llio Washington Puii is an Ohio

"Will Ohio do this?"
. The Maine Election Official Re
turns! Tho complete roturns of the
election in Muino have at last been re
ceived and tabulated. The total voto
polled was 117,!21, which was the
largest vote by nearly 10,000 overcast
in the Stato, tho next highest voto be
ing that of last year, 138,3.15. Tho
votes of tho rospectivo candidates aro
stated as follows :
Scattering.. H ......
General.; Plaisted'a plurality in 234.
He lacks 2 III of a majority, and Davis
lacks 714 of a majority. The amend
ment making plurality elect is adopted
by not far from 20,000 majority. Da
vis, the present Governor, will thero
foro retire on the first Monday of Jan
uary next, and a Democrat will fill bia
placo. Tbo Radical Iocs in Maine
(15,000) ha over teu per cent, since
1870. A similar loss in Pennsylvania
at the approaching election will give
the Democrats 70,000 majority.
Hen. Butler's Opinion. Genoral
Butler has just returned from Ohio and
Indiana, whero ho has delivered ovor
twonty speeches during the past two
weeks. Ho declares that ho has no
feats ot Landers' election in Indiana,
and tho State, ho says, is certain for
Huncock by an Increased voto in No
vember. His expectations of Ohio are
nearly at hopeful for tbo Democracy.
Ho assctts that Ohio 1b a doubtful
Stale for tho Republicans, and while
the Democrats may not carry it in Oc
tober, tho Republican voto will show a
fatal falling off. Tho forced effort of
tho Republicans to keep up their voto
in Garfield's homo district is to him a
confession of great weak lies. "Han
cock will win," said ho, "thoro's no
mistako about it. It's in tbo air, and
every man feels it. Any candid Re
publican must confess that tho Gar
field cause ia weakening."
Kihil Claim. Tho Philadelphia
Timet "rata in" on Garfield, a follow :
"General Garfield bat not yot defined
his position regarding Southern claims.
Under a Republican Congress moro of
theso claims have been paid than an
dor a Democratic Congress, and it is
important to know if that is going to
continue a part of the party policy
Some of tho organs havo figured tho
amount of theso claim np to noarly
thro thousand million. This ia an
appalling sum. General Hancock saya
none of it can be paid with hia con
sent, and tho country ia willing lo hoar
what Goneral Gaifteld may havo to

Good Luck! The Huntingdon

I.UTIIEIISIH Rll, Oct. -It b, 1H.S0.
Mil. Kiutor ; The largest meeting
of any kind ovor held in tbia place
waa that on last Saturday atVernoon
uud evening. A hickory pole, UI8
loci in length, had been secured and
placed on tbo ground on Friday, and
when Saturday Fame, all preparations
were completed for raising the highest
t ii ile ever ruised bef'uro at this place.
By two o'clock a large crowd bad
gathered from Brady township awaiting-
'i'O arrival of delegation from
other places. We soon heard the
Rockton Band which led a largo dele
gation from I nion. Next came Bloom.
A procession of over two hundred was
then formed, when the music from
Troutvillu was heard, which led Capt.
Kopp's Club, m beuutllul uniform.
These joined the procession and they
marched to meet the DuBois delega
tion. The Democrats of Brady were
highly pleased when they saw the
Hugs wavo on Carson's Hill, oat nod
by u delegation of about -00 voters
from Sandy township, led by the Kx
celsior Cornot Band of DuBois. The
procession now numbered over 500,
which paraded the streets of Lutliers
burg until half past three, when Mr.
Guorgo Thompson, of Itnynoldsville,
gave orders for the pole raising. The
polo was a heavy one, hut it win put
up without difficulty. Tho crowd dis
ponied then - until hull pnst seven,
when a lino was formed for the torch
light parade. There wore only three
hundred torches, consequently there
wero hundrods of men who did not go
in tho parade. lutt aa the procession
was repairing to tbo speaker's stand,
the delegation from Reynoldsville, 120
strong, all dressed in beautiful uniform,
led by tho Reynoldsville Cornet Bond,
made its appearance. Tho procession
now numbered ovor four hundred vo
tors which marched to the speaker's
stand, where tho grand mass meeting
was organized by electing the follow
ing officers :
President. J. P. Taylor, of DuBois.
Vico President. J. M. Troxell, of

Tho President then introduced Israel
Teal, Esq., of Clearfield, who spoke
for ono hour on the topics of tho cam

Krebs, K.sq. These spuechos wero
well delivered. Tho Reynoldsville
delegation paraded the streets again,
when tho largest mass meeting ot the
season in Luihursbtirg adjourned with
three rousing cheers for Huncock and
The crowd was estimated to have
been over 2,000 by Republicans, but I
am certain it was over 1,500. Look

BLOOM TO WXSIIIP BOOMING.
Fo ebt, Pa., Oct. 1st, 1880.
Mil. F.mroa: Tbo Democrats of

at the "Old Dloom Hotel" (Forest P.O.)
on October 1st. Largo delegations from

wbicb wero enthusiastically greetod
hy the audienco, after which he called
J. Frank Snyder, Ksq., one of the
speakers ot tbo evening, who dwelt
for ono half hour upon tho issues of

Tho editor ot lite Tyrone lltmld,
has been interne wing the, southeastern
section ol the Clearfield coal field, and
has tuken a pretty full inventory of
the Moshaniion region. In his iasno
of lust week lie says:
The depressing effort of'tbo Clear
field coal strike, in tho early part of
lite season, may be taken as au evi
dence of Ihe fuel that the business in
terests of Tyrone are largely depend
ent on the mining industry of that re
gion. Itecognir.ing the vital import
ancuofa flourishing and continuous
trudu from the mountain coal fields, a
Herald reKrlor skipped over the
ridge last week, intending to spy out
tbo land and report the situation.
The new Moshonnon railroad, bo
much tulked of, waa tho first object of
interest, Should thut bo completed to
Koating, Tyrono would no longer bo
tho oullut ol tho vast wealth of bitu
inin stored in tbo grand old hills of our
sister county. To our surpriso this
road is to be, and soon will bo, ono of
tho fixed institutions ot the coul region,
and will result in working a great
chuuge in tho business of Tyrone so
lur at least as the shipping interests
ooncorn us but in what way ?
From Osceola the road is leading up
tho Moshnnnon to a new and almost
unlimited coal basin hitherto untouch
ed. Helnw Phtlipsburg, on the route
lo Keating, is a lorbiddtng wildernoss
of mountains, for a distance ol forty
or filly miles, through which a rail
road may not find its way for tho next
hundred years, its a consequence, all
Ihia newly tapped mineral wealth
must of necessity flow through the iron
gateways of Tyrone, end every addi
tional ton of coal passing through our
city will leave its mark behind in tho
shape of increased pay-rolls in the
ofllco of the transportation oompany.
Hundreds of emigrants are now at
work on tho new lines of railroad, al
most literally digging up the wbolo
country. At one point a short dis
lunce above Osceola, four railroads
will soon brunch out into arteries pen
etrating the carbonaceous stores of tho
now ttmberlessbills. J liomuin uraticn
leads to Houtzdalo and Rainey, and
the new Moshannon rood is being
graded up the stream to the left, and
alter reaching Whiteside run will en
ter that basin the largest coal field
in tho county. It will then reach the.
summit between Janosville and Ha
A short distance above the junction
of ibis road with the lloutzdale branch,
the new road to the left leads to the
Kllis coal lands, around Kllis' mill.
Tho company now operating or open
ing Ibis coal, estimates a shipment of
fifty cars a day lor a period of forty
yoars all from one properly.
switching oil lo the rignt side ot
lloutzdale branch, 1b the Decatur
road, leading up Coal run. At this
place, W, J. Juckson has one mine
open, and is about commencing lo
ship from snowdrift. A short dis
tance up Coal run, the Decatur prop
erty, consisting of 1,000 acres, is be
ing dovcloped. The road-bed is al
ready graded, and before a gieat
while,' tho iron draught-borso will
steam his way up Coal run to draw
tbo long hidden wealth, away trom
Tho Gobs run branch loading off
from tho Houtzdalo road between
Moshannon and Sterling collieries, is
fed by innumerable mines, chief among
tho old ono being tboso of Whitehead
and Fishor's. Whitehead is running
the celebrated Ocean Colliery. This
road has boon extended more than a
mile to tho new mine of Berwind,
White A Co., known as Eureka No. 2.
Above most ol the old mines, and
located between lloutzdale and Ra-
moy, is one of Whitehead's now mines,
which will soon bo ready for operation.
The mine oars will be hauled up to the
"dump" at tho head nf tho Bbutes, by
a stationary engine, iiiu coat is al
most lovel with the railroad, hence
the necessity of a plane or slope. Mr.
Whitehead has so many mines in tins
region that be is obliged to keep a
book of special record to aa not to lose
the namo and location ol any ol bis
collieries. In addition to bis ooal in
terests, ho is also proprietor of Eliza
beth furnace in this county, and is
perhaps the only wealthy operator in
the Clearfield region wbo has steadily
but rapidly worked his way up from
The Moshannon Coal Company has
opened a new and very large mine on
the same road not far above lloutz
dale. The old mines on this branch
are old and new Moshannon, Beaver
ton, Sterling, Eureka, the celebrated
Franklin, Old Penn, Beavor Run, and
perhaps ono or two more, i
The new mines boing opened will
certainly double tho capacity of this
great coal basin; and even tnen, as
the star ol the coal empire rolls west
ward, southward and northward, the
long trains of black diamonds will
wind down tbo mountain side at an
ovor increasing rate.
Tboso who tear that the coal ship
uionta may fall off and that Tyrone
will cease to bo tho outlet of a busy
traffic, should visit the Moshannon val
ley now dotted with largo camps
where hundreds ot emigrants employ
ed on the new road "talio their grub,"
and rest from their labors at night,
among gnat, mosquitoes,1 wildcats,
panthers and boars. In the evenings,
theso imported sons of toil, gather in
urouii around their camp-fire, and
tor miles along the stream, tha forest
valley is made to ring with the cheer
ful songs of "Father Land."
All this speaks of pushing, tluiving
industry, prosperity, wealth, comfort,
happiness and peace, a reasonable aharo
ol which must, in tbo nature ol tutngs,
fall to the lot of Tyrone and Its people,
