GEN. GARFIELD'S CHANCE TO
MAKE A SENATOR.
It la auppoaed by many, who pre.
tend to have sources of information do
nied to the multitude, that (i lentil W.
Scofiold, of Warren, will bo the com
promise candidate for United States
Senator, if tho deadlock is not soon
broken. Scofield's strength, say those
knowing ones, consists mainly in the
fact that General (larflcld is warmly
in favor of him, though Mr. Scoliehl, in
tellectually and practically, is mora
than the peer of any of the four candi
dates who have rcceiveJ the support
of tho two factions. Goneral Garfield's
love for Mr. Scofiold dates from the
days of Credit Mobilier. Mr. Scofiold
was slightly implicated, and, though
be promptly pleaded innocence of any
wrong intention, his constituents rele
gated him to private life, lie emerg
ed from his forced seclusion to take the
appointment of Kegister of the Treas
ury, which he now holds. In General
Garfield's troubles, when Oakos Amos
with his little book was encompassing
him roundabout, it is said that Mr,
Scofiold came up to the help of the
man from Mentor and was ot much
assistance to him. The friendship bo
twoen the two, then and there formed,
It is quite likely that if General Gar
field shall distinctly intimate to the
struggling factions at Harrisbnrg that
he desires the election of Mr, Scofiold,
a sufficient number of votes could be
secured to make his success sure. The
iminenso putrouago ol tho Presidential
office, skillfully handled, in these days
ol bribery and corruption, ought to ac
complish any set purposo within the
lines of the Itcpublican party. Give
tho elder Cameron the control of that
patronage and he would furnish a Sen
ator in twenty four hours. General
Garfield, with a tithe of the Cameron
skill in that sort of tactics, could settle
this whole quostion of the Sonatorship
in one day. If he wants bis old Credit
Mobilier friend, Mr. Scofiold, let him
say so plainly not publicly to a fow
of the bell-wctbors of the party, and
Mr. Scofiold will be the man.
A Good SESD-orr. Tbo Hunting
don Globt, in introducing the Radical
nominee No. 2 to its readers, says :
"General James A. Beaver, who wasJ
brought to tho front lust week as
candidalo for United States Senator, is
well known in this county, where be
has many friends. Tho General lives
in Bcllefonto ; is a lawyer, and is about
forty-four years of ago; served through
tho war, first as a Lieutenant in tbo
three months' scrvico, then as Lien
tenant Colonel of tho 45th Regiment,
and afterwards as Colonel of the 118th
Regiment. He was wounded through
tho body at Chanccllorsvillo, struck by
a ball at Spottsylrauia Court House,
slightly wounded at Cold Harbor, seri
ousiy injurcu ny me expoision ot a
shell in tho first assault on Petersburg,
and lost his right leg at the hip at
Roams' Station. He was made a
Brevot Brigadier General for gallant
and meritorious services while in com
mand of bis Brigade at Cold Harbor.
Ho is a patriot, a statesman, an able
lawyer, a good orator, and a stalwart
Republican. Is not such a man en
titled to tho support of every true Ito.

How Startuno; But True I On
Friday previous to tho late municipal
eloction in Philadelphia, a meeting of
Reformers was held in the Spring Gar-
don Institute for the purpose of pro
testing against the frauds practiced at
the ballot-box by tho criminal classes.
Among tho resolutions adopted at the
mooting was one invoking the death
penalty against all election officers,
ballot-box Btufl'ers, and roporters wbo
violated tho laws in this particular.

G. Ames proachod a sermon on "Poli

perpotrated at the ballot-box is a crime
against society not an individual
and should be punished as such in the
Worth IIavinu. Tbo editor of the
Cartorsville (Georgia) Express states
the case in thia way: "Thero isa little

A New Case. Tho Doylestown
Jrmooroif roluto the following: "Among
the cases tried last week a.1 Court wua
one seldom brought in this country
a prosecution against the Democratic
election oflluors of Bonsalom township,
who wore indicted for "refusing to re
ceive the vote of a qualified elector."
The person wbo olfered bis vote was a
oolorcd man, who was registered in (lie
township by tho name ol bVunk Mavis,
and his vote was rofused on the ground
tbnt that was not his true name, which
wash rank McKinnoy, The del'eneo

land, where be formerly lived, us .Mu
ivinney ana was Known by tins naino
and no other; und it was also sworn
to that ho had received letters in Hen
salem, addressed to Prank McKinnoy.
The prosecutor swore that his namo
was Davis. The jury, after boing out
about ten hours, brought in a verdict
of "Not guilty," and placed ono quutor
of the costs on tho defendants, and
three fourthson tho county. After tho
jury had separated, it was discovered
that the finding, as regards tho costs,
was illegal, l.u I it was too Into to remedy
the matter. 1 1 relioros the defendants
from all liability fur coats, and us the
Commissioners have been notified not
to pay any, it is possible the prosecutor
may have to foot tho whole bill, in
which case it will prove a dour vote to
Pension Frauds. Tbe editor of tbo
Danville Intclliijencer cites a enso in
point: "About every filth or bixlb
man you meet, nowadays, whoformerly
served in the army, has the pension
bee in his bonnet. Tbo facility with
which claims are passed, many of the
recipients having no apparent bodily
ailment, has led thousands of able
bodied persons to apply who would
novcr have thought of it had they not
witnessed tho successful passago of
claims of persona no more entitled to
government support than themselves.
Wo aro led to speak of this by having
been accostod the othor day by a stal
wart person, who desired to know if
we could affirm to his having served a
certain timo in the urmy. On our in
quiry why be desired the afllrmation,
ho replied ho intended to apply for a pen
sion. Wo ridiculed the idea of such a lus
ty person desiring to livoofTthcgovern
meDt, wheu he responded by naming
several persons in tbe neighborhood
who are drawing pensions, and who
are as li co from disability as be ; hence,
he felt like joining in with these spong
ers off of the Government."

wore forced to this activity by thopres
uro of the honest portion of the cilinons
of Philadelphia, who demanded that
the odious delinquent tax law of that
city should be repealed, and the duties
thereof transferred to tho offleo of tbo
Receiver of Taxes. This was the office
through which the Republicans ol that
city got thoir corruption fund. It is
said to have realized to those who di

from tho poorer classes of that city

THE SX YVEIt L YNCUERS.
Judge Myuis, of Lehigh county, in
his recent charge to the Grand Jury,
dwelt at considerable length upon tho
roccul lynching of Snyder, lor tho
murder of Henry Google and wile, the
particulars of which aro fresh in the
minds of all our readers, and which so
sturtlid that community and the ico
pie of this Stutu ut the timu. ' lie very
clearly pointed out the duty ol the
Grand Jury in tho case. In his re
marks he said in sulMiinco:
It wits tho first Instance where tbo
citizens of this Slate took it into their
own hands to punish murder. The
people engaged in tbe lynching of Sny
der comnntled a clear, direct and pal
pable violation of the laws of tbis
Stale. Thero is no law of this Suite,
no word in tho Constitution of tbis
Stuto, no wonl in any decree cmtuia
ting from any Court of Justice, that
mako those people the avengers of tbo
blood of ' tho "Google. If tbe members
of tho Grand J my know Irom their
own knowledge uny person connected
with the lynching of Snyder, or il they
havo learned it from any porson tak
ing part in tho lynching, they have a
right to impart the information to tbo
other members ol the Grand jury and
have the matter brought to the atten
tion ol the Court. The Court said that
Snydor had olVcnilcd aguinst tho luw
of Pennsylvania, and it ho had been
tried, acquitted or convicted, it would
bo under the laws of Pennsylvania,
and if his execution had followed il
would havo been in answer to tbo man
date from tbo Governor of Pennsylva
nia. Tho lynchers robbed tho State
of its powers ; it was a grevious wrong.
No mutter how great was Snyder's
crime, if ho had been tried, convicted
and punished, with tho Commonwealth
as his accuser, all tho people of this
Mate would be tho avengers ol tho
blood ol the murdered people, hnv
der's death was murder, and whatovcr
may be tho excuses of tboso taking
part, although there may have been
evils that they thought justified their
actions, they should havo remembered
that tho method ol avenging the ovil
was one thousand fold worse thun the
evil itsull. The Court stated that tho
act of these men should not be allowed
to puss unchallenged, thus giving u
license to everyone, everywhere, un
der like cases to resort to thorn, and
ho felt it his duty to call the attention
of tho jury to tho matter and closed

A Stranue Case. Tho Postmaster
at Baton Kongo, Louisiana, who ran
for Congress last Fall and got one half
as many votes as his competitor, is
going lo contest for the seat on the
ground that tho negroes woro so dread
fully intimidated in 187C that they
wore afraid to vote in 18S0. There is
nothing comic about thai man.
SuiitiESTiVE. The Newark (Ohio)
Advocate remarks: "Garfield says bo
is n political bankrupt that ho is un
der obligations to a half million fto
publican friends and his assets aro only
a fow paltry offices. Is thero no Oakes
Amos nor Dick Parlons, or Ie Golycre
to make a small advancoln this crisis?"
Lovelv. Sherman says Garfield is
a "man with a great big head, and a
great big heart." That Is moro thun
Gurfleld can say truthfully of Sher
man, whose head Is big enough, but
his heart is small enough for a pinch-
penny curb stono broker to carry with
out annoying his conscience
An exchange says: "An association
for tbo advancement of the causo of
civil service reform, composed of gen
tlemen of both political parties, has
boon lormed In Cambridge, Mass." It
is a pretty good place to begin away
down thero. J I ayes is so far off ho
might not meddlo with It,
"Too Tiiik." Tho four years ol rea
sonable prosperity which tho country
has enjoyed is now being attributed by
partisan newspapers to the adminis.
tration of Mr. Hayes. Tbo adminis
tration ol this man had about as much
to do with it as tho moon.
It Seems Ho. "Is pauperism in
creasing?" asks tho Now York Times.
We don't know about that, but judg
ing by General Grant, tbo paupers aro
getting harder to pleaso than they
used to be.
CAUftTic. In tbo U. 8. Senate, on
Monday a week, Senator Butler, oT
South Carolina, pronounced Conklinir
"inftolent," and CotikHng called Butler
"pen-on 1" So alarm no blowa.

'To the HqmUican Manlier of the Gen
eral Assembly :
Tho contest for tho Senutorsllip has
been so protructod and without reas
onable hope of solution, as long us the
principal candidates remuin as contest
ants, that it is altogether fitting in me,
at tbis timo, to express to you my
views on tbe subject. It is an honors
bio ambition in any man, feeling that
ho has the proper elements within
himself to worthily fulfill its duties, to
aspire to a seat in tho national Senate.

tion is to represent a great tuiniuon

realizing that tho party nominee euli-

to my supporters to say that I am no
