Guiiigo A. Junka, tbo Dcihocmlic
condidato Air Supremo Judtro, is in bis
forty-firth year. Jle is tho youngcHt
of ten children, and wan born in 1'unx
sntawnoy, Jefferson county, Pa.,
March 20, 183G. His father, a pliysi
cian, was descended from B Welsh
Qualjr family who were among tho
early settlors of Philadelphia. II is
mother wiih a daughter of tbo Rov. D,
Barclay, u Scoteli Presbyterian minis
lor. When Mr. Jonks was a child, bis
eldent brother, D. B. Jonks, who was
a lawyer, was teaching him to count
a bundled, and casually at-ked him
what business be would follow when
be beeamo n man. The reply was,
"Wait till to morrow morning and I
will tell you." During tho night tho
determination was formed, and tho
next morning communicated by tho
subject of this sketch, tbat he would
be a lawyer. This purpose, so early
formed, was unaltorably fixed. Thence
forward bis every labor and study
was directed to lite purpose ol bis lilo
To there early studies is largely to bo
attributed bis capability to deal with
original legal questions, auch as bo
manifested on tbo impeachment of
Secretary Jielknap, tbo discussion of
tbo Louisiana and Oregon cases before

In this, ono of tbo lessons was the
story of the "Noble Baskot-makor."
Krora the story the moral was derived
that every man, no difference what
bis circumstances or purposes in lifo
might bo, should learn a trade. This
moral be determined to act upon,
When fourteen years old bis fntbor

apprenticeship of two years to tbo
carpenter and joiner trade. Whon bis

the latter vocation, in the (Spring of
1855, ho assisted to lay out Omaha, in
Nebraska. In the full of tbat year be

College, having iu tho mornings and
evenings, while teaching and working
steadily pursued his literary studies.
lie bad been entered as a student of
law before be entered oollego, and tho
lion. W. P, Jenks, who was bis Ktiar-
dian, bad Irom early boyhood, directed
bim in bis legal and literary reading.
Ho graduated at Jefferson Col logo in
tbo class of 185R, and in Pobruary,
1859, was admitted to tho bar, In
Jefferson county, having finished bis
legal studies undor bis elder brother,
I . W. Jenks.
At tbo Septombor torm, 1859, holed
in conducting bia first caso in Court,
which was an all-important ono to his
clients, a widow and her minor chil
dren, whose all was their home, and
that homo was dependent upon the re
sult of tho caso. He was onnoaed bv
the leading legal talent ut the bar,
including Hon. Isaao O. Gordon,
lion. William P. Jonks and Hon.
O. W. Zolglor. Ho won tbe caso and
tlionro lorward was employed in most
of the important causes in his own
county, and bis namo soon became
familiar in many of tho Courts of west
ern and central Pennsylvania, to which
bo was called for the trial of important
When not engagod in tho Courts,
his life has been one of constant atudy
and preparation. Ho novor sought
publio position, but was known as a
Democrat. In tbe fall of 1874 be was
tendered tho Democratic nomination
for Congress in the 25th district of
Pennsylvania, against Gen. Hurry
Whito. Tbo district was hoavily Re
publican, but his personal popularity
and tho tidal wave elected him to tho
41th Congress. Speaker Korr ap
pointed him Chairman of tbo Com
mittee on Invalid Pensions A mas
torly report on the condition and work
ing of tho pension bureau, derived
from investigation by order of tbo
House, bo soon made, and followed
this by a bill which was calculated to
prevent luluro abuses. Bounty land
warrants, which beloro this bad been
personal prororly, and become the
plunder ot a dishonest ring, which at
ono single timo bad (eir.ed upon ovor
ono hundred thousand acres ot land,
were changed to reality, through bis
efforts, and to guarded that only the
rightful owners, their legal heirs or
ussigns, could obtain thorn.
His forensic ability first became
known to tho Houso in a discussion
concerning the character of an Invalid
Pension. He had assorted that an In
valid Pension, for death or disability
of a soldier in the service, in tho lino
of bis duty, was a contract right. This
was denied by soino of tbo leading Re
publicans of the Houso, who alleged
it was a mero gift of gratuity, and a
warm debato ensued, at tho conclusion
of which Mr. Junks made a legal argu
ment, tracing tho legislation on the
subject from and since tbo Revolution
ary war, and establishing so couclus
ively the position ho assumed, that it
has not since been denied. This was
soon succeeded by a legal discussion
concerning tho refusal of Hullott Kil
bourno to testily bef'oro acommitleo of
' Tho legal prominence be hud already
(attained led tho House to elect him as
ono of tho seven managers on part of
tho House to conduct tbo impeach
mentof Secretary Belknap, tho others
being Messrs. Lord, Knott, Lynde,
MuMuhon, Hoar and Lapham. On
that trial befu'ro tho Senato the De
fendant was represented by three
leading lawyers of tho Nation Hon.
Joremiah S. Black, Hon. Mutt Car
penter and Hon. Montgomery Blair.
Mr. Jenks was selected by the managers
as one of tho Committee to draw the
pleadings. Ho was afterwards ap
pointed to mnko ono of tho arguments
on the quuslion of tbo jurisdiction of
tho Senate to impeach after tbe olHccr
had resigned, and subsequently, in
consequence of tho illness of Mr. Lap
ham, ho was selected to discuss tho
facts. His legal attainments were on
this trial mado conspicuous to tbo
Senate and the Nation, and conceded
to bo unsurpassed by any in the cause.
Tbo subject of tho distribution of
tho Gcnova Award came before tbe
Houso on majority and minority re
ports from tho Judiciary Committee
Mr. Jenks offered an amendment to
the majority report, and iu support of
llio amendment and report as amended
mado an argument involving some of
tho most difficult questions of interna
tional law. The report, as amended
by bim, was passed by tho House.
Soon after the meeting of the aocond
session be was appointed by Speaker
Rundall one of tbo committee of fifteon,
to Investigate the conduct of tho elec
tions in Louisiana, and on his return
was appointed by the Chairman of the
Democratic Caucus, with Mr. Field ol
Now York, and Mr. Tucker of Vir
ginia, to represent tbo Democracy of
tbo Houso in preparing, presenting and
discussing the facts and tho law before
the Electoral Commission. Itfcll to Mr.
Jenks to mnko tho opening arguments
in tho eases of Louisiana and Oregon.
While he wasongaged in llio discussion
of the first of these cases boforo the
Com mission, Sonalors Thurman and
Bayard sat sido by Bide. Senator
Bayard passed a note of admiration of
tbe argument to Senator Thurman,
and in response received the following
reply ; "Tho more I hoar this man, tho
more I admire him. Ho reasons like
a Nowton'or LaPlaco. He has spoken
half an hour and has not uttorod a
superfluous word." This compliment
ary opinion was genorally concurred
in by tboso who heard or read tho pro
ceedings before the Elocloral Com
mission. In most of tbo legal discussions that
aroso in the Houso Mr. Jenks partici
pated, in audition to tbo full perforin
ancoof his duties on tbe very laborious
Committee ol which ho was Chairman.
At tho expiration of his congressional
term, he immediately resumed his pro
fessional pursuits, in which be has
ever sinco boon engaged. His extens
ive praolico has included almost every
branch tbat arises in the State and
covers a voty broad range of Area.
His election to the Supremo bench of
the Slate will be but a just recognition
of bis superior legul attainments.
Crime Upon Crimi. Juduo Black

furity in the Credit Mohiiier matter,

WHY PENNSYLVANIA REPUB
LICANS SHOULD VOTE FOR
The author of tbo folloning clear
and convincing TIIIHTY-SEYEX
DEASOXS is well known to us. A
Democrat up to the timo ol tbo Kansas-Nebraska
troubles, bo then took
tho Douglas viaw ( things, and dur
ing the war became actively identified
with tbo Republican parly. Ho has
voted with tho Republican party ever
since, though often restivo under tbo
disprtt'wfl- r,al--t1ti7 try a aeifiab
and corrupt leadership. The nomina
tion of General Hancock brings him
fully to tbo light of day, and bo gives
tindcniablo reasons lor tho fitilh by
which ho is now guided :
The Republican nominee, General Gur
field, has been declnred a corrupt and
unworthy man by mmy of the high
est authorities of his own parly.
Many of tho Independent Kenubli-
eans of bis own district adopted and
widely circulated a resolution which
arraigned and denounced hint "lor bis
corrupt connection with tho Credit
Alobilicr; lor bis fulio denials thereof
before his constituents: tin his perjur
ed denial thereol beloro a Committee
of bis peers in Congress; for fiaud
among his coiiniiluenu, in circulating
among I hem a pamphlet purporting to
ml loi ill the finding ol said Committee
and tbo evidenco aguinst bim, when in
fact material portions thereof were
omitted and gurbled.
These same Independent Republican
constituents also arnigned and charg
ed him "with corrupt bribery in sell
ing bis official influence, as Chairman
of the Committee on Appropriations,
for five thousand dollars to tho Du
(iolycr pavement lini?, to aid them in
securing a contract from the Board ot
I'ublio Works of the District of Colum

ring in imposing Uon the people of
said .District a pavement, which is al
most worthless, tit threo times ils cost;
selling his influence m aid such ring
in procuring a contract, to procure
which it corruptly uid ninety seven
ihoasund dollars lor influence ; selling
bis influence in manors that involved
no question of law, npon tho shallow
pretext that bo was acting as a law
yer; selling his influence in a manner
so palpable and clear as to be lound
and doclurcd by an impartial and com
petent Court, upon an isstio solemnly
Tbat samo body of the Independent
Republicans of General Garfield's own
irrespective ol lormer or purty attach
district called npon t licit fellow citizens,
mcntfl, who desired honest government
to unito with them in an effort to do
teat Genera) Garfield, and elect in his
stead an honest and reliablo man ; and
becauso such efforts have elicited so
much sympathy at various times in
tbo district where General Garfield is
best known, that if it had not contain
ed one of tho very largest Republican
district majorities in tho entire United
States, bo would long sinco have been
remanded to deserved obscurity and
disgrace, for the reason and on tbe
ground that bo is a dishonest and cor
General Garfield's connection with tbo
De Golycrv pavement transaction, was
not only an unworthy and dishonest
act, which no man deserving tho sup
port of tbo honost members of any
party could commit, but a direct vio
lation ot one of tho best and most uso
ful laws over passed by tbo Republican
party, which duclures that for precise
ly such acts as General Garfield com
mitted in connection with this trans,
action, ho and all other criminals guilty
of tho same offense should be punished
by lino, by imprisonment, nnd by be
ing declared forever iucnpnblo of hold
ing any offlco of honor, trust or profit
under tho government of tbo United
It is tbe duty of ovory honost citizen,
without distinction of party, who
wishes to secure tor himself and bis
posterity tho blessings of bonest gov
eminent, and aid in the enforcement
of such law, and to put an ineffaccublo

On account of General Garfield's guilty
complitily with some of tho most cor
rupt schemes by winch tho National
Treasury has ever been despoiled, bo
would not bavo tho power to resist tho
clamors and demands of other spoils
men if bo should bo elected President
ot tho United States. Tho most cor
rupt elements of tho Republican party
would find in bim a congonial confed
erate, as bis own record establishes his
his complicity with their crimes, and
proves his readiness to violate his pri
vato and his official oath, to sacrifice
bis honor, to degrado bia manhood,
and to betray his trust as holder of the
purse-strings of tbo Nation.
Tbe agencies now actively employed
to secure the election of General Gar
field, in spito of the horror his crimos
have inspired in tho hreasls of many
honest Republicans, are of a corrupt
and corrupting nature, inasmuch aa
tbo main reliance of tho present party
managers is upon the lavish uso ol'im
moneo turns of money, wrung Irom
employes of tho government, in defl
ance of tho Civil Sorvico Rules laid
down at tho commencement ol tho ad
ministration of President Hayes, and
from local party leaders who have been
enriched by municipal abuse.'.
Men whoso sole interest in elections
hinges upon regaid for tho welfare of
their country, nnd who are not tho
partners, nor tho dupes, nor the de
pendants of tho leaders who wield gov
ernmental powers for the puipnsoof
enriching themselves, cannot maintain
tboir soll respoct by acting as tbe ac
complices of notorious enrrnptionists.
Every intelligent cilir.cn knows that
under the dominion of tho Republican
party the noble State of Pennsylvania
has held a subordinate and disgraceful
position at tho National Capitol, not
withstanding the great services she
has ronderotl to tbe Republican party,
and the virtues and brilliant talents of
many of her Ilopublicao cilitona, and
meanwhile the management of tho
leading Republican cities of the State
and of matters oonnectfd with State
government has often fallen into the
bands of unworthy men.
Numerous attempts mudu to restore
ronnsylvania to hor truo position and
to purify bor counsels, wbicb bin god

form within tho lines of tho Republi
can party, havo disastrously lulled on
account of tho thoroughness with
which ils tnachinorv has been pervert

The best and only hope of a trium

Of the battlo of Gettysburg, in which

Dr. Draper, tho great histotian, de
clares that utter Gettysburg "freedom
was master of the Continent."
Professor Jacobs, of tho Pennsylvania
Collego at Gettysburg, who was an
eye-witness of the battle, writing soon
after it was fought, declared that "by
tho determination ot that dreadful
struggle tho corner stone of the fabric

When there were vory large Ropubli

was passed which declared that "tho

General Ilancock has properly laid
stress, in his letter of acceptance, upon
too importnnco ol Honest liovornnient
by declaring that "public office is a
trust, not a bounty bestowed upon tho

The great sorvico General Hancock
rendered to the people of Pennsylva
nia, at Gettysburg, gives bim a strong
er claim than any other living man to
tho gratitude of the citizens of Phila
delphia, and all olhor portions of Penn
sylvania. When tho fact that our ar
mies wore triumphant at Gettysburg
was lully realized by tho brave troops
wbo del'endod the Union lino, and tbey
ascertained that tho enemy bad re
treated, a living witness and partici

that from tboso brave soldiers there

Goneral Hancock, after receiving a
very painful and dangerous wound,
while in command at the post or great

of tho bottle of Gettysburg, continued
to direct the tight in spite ot his tear

Of the thron groat Pennsylvania Gen

a degree of painful anxiety, of trem

i'horo was weeping and wailing in
hundreds of thousands ol Pennsylva
nia tamilies, which had not only sent

largo numbers of porsons assembled,
and in tho privato closets of all good
citizens, a lervcnt prayer went up
Irom tho very depth of the hearts of
all our pooplo that God would send to

Genoral Hancock was, to a much
greater extent than any other living
man, tbe personification and directing
mind of tho army of heroes by which
our City and State wore saved from
the indescribable koriorsof a succesHful
invasion. He was the man God sent

of our heart stricken people.

Now York City recently, bo mado
the following truthful business remarks:
The speeches last night were natur

are worthy ot general attention. Mr.

Republicans to create a public alarm
now, ho thought, was willtout basis.
Undoubtedly ho is right. No parly
coming into power is going to destroy
itself by measures injurious to the
credit or honor ot the Nation. That
is rather to be expected of a party
demoralizod by too long possession of
power and already to bid too high or
stoop too low for continued support.
Tho Democrats, if they should elect
(ienerul Hancock, would make it thoir
first aim by careful good behavior to
conciliate tho confidonco of tho public,
in order that thoir predominance
should not bo short lived. They would

Colonel F. A. Conk ling, brother ol'
Senator Roscoo Conkling, addressed a
largo and enthusiastic meeting of Dem
ocrats and independent Republicans on
Mondny evening last in Now York,
and among other things said :
"Who bavo taken tbe places ol Sum
ner, Chase, 'Trumbull, Seward, and
other loaders', Tbo Logans, the Cain,
ornns, tho Garfields and tho Colfaxo.
From tbe time tboso men bavo assu ro
od tho control of tho party it has beon
held together by tho oohosive powor
ol'plundor. And now I would liko to
ask what tbat Ikpt-Wkar, jarty
bos done. Tbo party has put forward
a man whoso character will not hour
scrutiny. They havo mado an odious,
malignant aeetiuiialismtbuchiel feature
ol the canvass. This man Garfield
has been put forward as representing
tho principles of that parly. Now I
tell you ho stands before the American
people as a liar, a perjurer, a bribe
laker, a back-salary grubber, and, last
but not least, as tbo most conspicuous
figure in tho electoral fraud of 1870.
Now, of courso you and I understand
that the men who havo put Garliold
forward must necessarily support him,
iiml if their consciences will permit
them lo do so I find no fault with
them. But 1 do obiect to one lliinir.
1 do object to Iho Ron. Hamilton Fish
declaring that 'no purer or abler man
ever assisted in tho councils ol tho
Nation. No bettor man can be found.'
Now, wo do not expect that men liko
Hamilton Fish ana George William
Curtis shall throw dust in the eyes of
tho American pooplo like that."
Tho speaker said he thought it
proper to read Thomas Jefferson's ad
dress, and he quoted at length from it,
and added, "I may say that there ts
no man that has lived in this country
who lives to up that creed hotter than
Gen. Hancock." Whon bo was asked to
support the nomination of Genoral
Ilancock lie said he held back, having
thoughts of West Point nnd of milita
ry men wbo bad no experience in civil
offuirs, but after ho bad read Goneral
Ilancock s letters it seemed no exagger
ation to'suy thnt no man who has figur
ed in the affairs of this coujilry better
appreciates tbe spirit of our institu

One of tho important circumstances
of this campaign, be thought, is that
so many Republicans have come out in
tho support of General H uncock.
"There is no need of giving names." bo
said "You know many ol them.
There are about threo hundred ol
