Typho-malarial fevor, bilious colic

sad havoc among the persons rendered
homeless by the recont forest fires in

occurred, and many of the sufferers
aro lying at the point of death.
Freemen I or Course. Mr. Lam
bert, of tho Philadelphia Times, who
was present at the Radical Stato Con
vention, says :
I oever law tbo time whea tbe general ran of
the delegate! senmed o willing to bo tbown whleb
way to go. " I 'n not Instructed," save an Interior
delegate! ibow me to Quay room , and tho
oarnot on tbe wit, to Quaj'a room waa pretty
Fair and Sqare. The policy of tbe
Democratic Senators is undoubtedly
outlined in this remark of Senator
Hampton's: "As a mombor of the Son
ate, I propose to treat President Ar
thur precisely as I treated Garfield, sus
taining his administration in all meas
ures that moot my approval, and op
posing those that do not. But in no
event shall I appose him in a partisan
or factions manner."
The Stalwarts. The Republicans
of Clearfield county lost week nomina
ted the following tickot: Associate
Judge, Jamos Glenn, of Knox town
ship; Troasuror, John B. Ellis, of Du
Boia borough j County Commissioner,
C. K. McDonald, of Gulich township
Auditor, James S. Norris, of Bradford
township; Coroner, A bram Bailey, of
Lawrence township. Dr. II. B. Van
Valzah was re-elected Chairman of the
Republican County Comqiitteo for
AnairT, Stt.MiNOLT. Tho Phila

In now Senators. The Democ rats must
organize the Senate, whether they
would or not, by electing a Presidont
pro tempore to begin with. If they
elect Senator Bayard the linn of the
Presidency will lie secure enough to
suit the American people Would to
Heaven the Presidency might novor

please remember that three County
Commissioners aro to be elected this
Fall, and they will also recollect that
tbe rotor can only voto for TWO, al
though throe are to be elected. Coun
ty Auditors are to be choson (n the
aamo manner. The new Constitution
authorises the election of three lor
each of the ofilcos indicated, but as
signs one of the throe to the minority
parly. Hence, Democrats ran only
oto for two.
Skippinq AaorND. A Washington
telegram, dated September 2!Uh, says :
"President Arthur has loft for New
Tork and will not be back before
Monday or Tuesday." He waa evi
dently holding a caucus in a corner of
the New York Custom House with
hii "old chums," out of which he was
hoisted by Hayes and Sherman a low
years ago. This trip, we presume, fa
not Custom House business, but it may
turn op in the shape of a Cabinet Job.

adjourned tine die.
The Philadelphia Times comos
timo in this way : "It is not true, as
has been frequently assorted lately
that tho widow of Abraham Lincoln
wasscurvily treated by Congress. That
body occupied itself with Mrs. Lin
coin s anairs on tlireo several occa
sions. Tho first time, immediately af
tor the aasasaination, a law was paused
bestowing a year of her husband's sal
ary upon tho widow. This was t2
000. Still later an act was passed per
mitting Mrs. Lincoln to have all letters
sent to her frco of pout ago and her own
correspondence was likowiso franked
Still later, in 1870, a law was passed
giving the widow 13,000 a year for
lifo. Mrs. Lincoln, however, never was
before the country in forma pauperis,
Her husband was not a money-getting
man, but he was frugal. Ho loft
modest property, qoito enough for
woman of Mrs. Lincoln's tastes and ac
quirements. The fact is, thore is some
thing repugnant in the clamor to Con
grcas to vote away publio moneys in
casoa where it would bo in far better
keeping to take no band in the mat
tor. Mr. Garfield, as it happens, leaves
his wifo with some resources, and the
subscription, if it continues growing,
will soon settle all questions of bis
widow's needs. This, after all, is
much preferable way to asking tbe
intervention of Congress, since the
people tbcmsolves give in proportion
to their means. Tbore may bo some
outlays of the late President that ought
to bo paid by the Nation, but the fewer
precedents of this sort the better It
will be for tbe country."

is here In a representative capacity.

bill every time hoiscu'ltd to the front.
The following lire his remarks on tak
ing the t'hiiir
Mr. Chairman and Gentlemen of firthe amount of wisdom evolved. A
tWcnfiOM : There oro no off years! lending Now York dully announces
in Democratic hopes or Democratic
exertions. I'rolouiitlly appreciating
tho cull which your purtiulity has ex
tended to mo, I am not innunaible to
thorespotmibililies which its acceptance
involve. 1 trimt 1 need not nay that 1
will endeavor to discharge Itiotn with
out fear, favor or allection. 1 am not
unmindful that the long shadow of the
peoples' grief fall athwart any public
gathering of these times; and that tho
whole iU'pulilio laments the calamity,
which lias befallen it in tho anaaHnina
tion of the Chief Magistrate A pplause.
Depreciating aa they do any assat
upon tho dignity of eatublmlied ollico
by fraud or lorce, the Democrats ap
plause of Pennsylvania siiivurely join
in Ibis universal sorrow and sympathy
which this Iragiu oveul has awakened
throughout tho civilized world. All
the ruoro deeply do they feel the no
cossity of re-altl ruling by their words
and by their "works, their fidelity to
the principles of those illustrious men
who settled our tree institutions and
lounded the Democratic pat ty to pre
sorvo them. Applause. Those who
look for the Democratic State Conven
tion to react tho ancient landmarks
will, 1 trust, look 'in vain. Tune la
only vindicating the essential princi
pals of Democracy to truly save tho
life ot tho Nation ; and to keep each
part ol our well devised constitutional
system in full vigor and tree cxerciao.
To re assert rather than to tako the
deparluro from f'ailb delivered to the
lathers, and to nominate candidates
who aro tho embodiment thereof is tho
olliot) of such convention!. In the
measure that this is done with tho
people of the Commonwealth approve
tho deliverance of tho party ? That
plodgo 1 may bo allowed to say in
volves a declaration for honest money,
home rule, fair elections and economy
in tho expenses of government. Ap
plause. And against all schemes of
centralization, against waste of fraud
in tho administration of the public
business. Aguiust repudiators and
repudiation, Applause and against
tbo growth and exactions of subsidies
lo corporations at the peoples' expense.
Applause A long career of faith
lulness to tho public trust bus informed
tho people ot this Commonwealth of
iho dishonesty of purpose ot the lie
publicun party. Applause. Recent
events have quickened publio appro
bennion of tho futal resulu of tho slate
of its longer continuance in power,
and tho formidable rebellion every
where assorting itself aguinat personal
corruption and political dynasties,
gives protniso that tho day of Penn
sylvania's deliverance is near at band.
Applause. Honest men aro becom
ing hopeful, with good reason, that in
tho near fuluro a better political creed
is horo to prevail than that of ' addi
tion, divisionand silence." Applause.
These signs ot the times point the way
to Democralio expediencies as well us
to Domncratio duty. If this Conven
tion shall meet and discharge that duty
as 1 know it will.it will justify the
bopos of a largo majority ol tho people
whose eyes are turned this way to day.
If it shall arraign the opposition lor
its sins of omission, and lor its deeper
vice of commission if it shall pledgol
itaell without equivocation lo bettor
things aud it it should provo lis sin
cerity by naming a candidate whose
character is without fear and whose
rocord ia above reproach, it will not
havo met in vain. Applause. Those
results may be of far wider reaching
importance than simply to determine
and elect the custodian ol the Stuto
funds. The forerunner of political
contests culminating in tho near future
in a national vordicl which fraud can
not rovorso and force cannot overturn.
Gentlemen of the convention, 1 am
prepared to receive any motion looking
to the propor dispatch of your business.

'I'"" I'rtwidnwy pro f m.oiv of tho
tj,,!,,.,, HMn J lw
unwti,,,, jai now. The henalu hits
won aiimiiione.l ill extraordinary sea
tii fhitlly fur the piirposo of electing
a auilalilu perron to I'l l that t.llice, in
order lo prevent ho existetico cf an
anarchical interregnum in tho event
ol President Arthur's disability or
dent h. This nntioual exigency has
tailed into exercise tho ability of cer
tain prominent journals in expounding
tho Conatitution and the laws enacted
thereunder. And btarllim. indeed, in
that there is nothing iu tho Consiitu
lion lo prevent tho election as Presi
dent ;iro tem. of a person not a Sena
tor; and suggests Thurman, Grunt
and other prominent gentlemen lor
that position. That tho Constitution
docs not forbid such a course, is true ;
but it is equally true that neither tho
Constitution nor the law provides for
any such extraordinary and revolu
tionary proceeding. H has beon al
ways the custom of iho Senate to elect
a member ol that body in such case,
and, in the absence of legal enactment,
custom has made i lie law in this emer
gency. Except by a revolutionary
act, no ono not a Senator con be elect
ed President ro tem. ot tho Sonato.
Nor is there any necessity tiir such
proceeding, even from Iho partisan
standpoint of tho Now York journal
alorementioned. That proposition is
based on the absurdity that if a Sena
tor be elected President ho will lose
bis voto on all questions except where
there is a tie. This is obviously un
true. As priding officer ho would
lose neither his vote nor his voice on
any question. Tho Vice President in
in thai category, but no Senator can
bo placed iu it. Tho only wav in
which a Senator can lose his voto or
his voice is by dying or by following
tno lotnarkahle example ol Conklitia!
and Piatt. There is no other possible
way for a Senator to lay asitlo the
duties and privileges of his position.
following tho New York journal's
lino 01 argument, our venerable con
temporary, tho American, says : "The
question is raised because it would
seem vi give tno jjomocrata the con
trol. Suppose, for example, tho Dem
ocrats should choose Borne ex Senator
Tbey could then retain all their
strength, and ct'11 havo n Democratic
oflicer to break tho tie. In other
words, ihey would put a Democrat
in Mr. Arthur's place without tho loss
ol a Menalor. II, however, they should
elect Mr. Bayard or Mr. Beck, Dela
ware or Kentucky would lose a Sena
tor. It our contemporary has
any further doubts on iho subject
it will find, by referenoo to the (.'en
grcssional Record, that Iho vole of Hen
ttor Kerry, whon holding the position
of President pro tem., was in every
case whon he was present whon a vote
was recorded counted and printed
among tho official record of yeas and
nays. The mistake in regard lo the
mailer probably arises from the pro
sumption that in such a case as tho
present ono tho presiding officer of tho
Senate assumes the functions of the
Vice President of tho United States,
and as such has only a casting voto in
tbe event of a tio. Such, however, is
not tho fact, as we havo already
clearly shown. Baltimore Gazette.
THE FO.XY COOPER.
The Patriot, in alluding to a cam
paign dodgejuat adopted by Iho Radi
cal Chairman of tho Stato Committee
says: 1 ho stylo is tho man. When
Governor Hnyt was Chairman ol tbe
Republican Siato Committee his cam
paign bulletins greatly resembled those
ol iho first Napoloon. They wero
resonant of military phrases and were
constantly urging the charge upon the
enemy. Chairman Cessna bad a more
subdued, but somewhat pictorial stylo.
Tho style ot Chairman Cooper is still
different. His may ho called the
mousing style. In a circular to the
Republican organs, which was by mis
lake sent to tho Pittsburgh Dispatch,
Chairman Cooper recommends to them
as "wise policy" in regard to Mr.
Wollo "to advertiso him as littlo as
possible for Iho remainder of the cam
paign." He adds that "ibis policy
hus pursued with advantage as to
Prohibitory, Greenback and other side
arrangements," and ho thinks that its
wisdom will bo "more apparont than
over in the present instance."
Thus admonished, tho organs aro to
say never a word about Wollo for tho
rest of the campaign. By treating
him in Ibis way Chairman Coopor
supposes that tho masses of the Repub
lican party who havo cxtromoly short
memories will forget that be is a can
didate and march up on election day
and voto tbo regular machlno ticket
By ignoring so dangerous an enemy
as Wolfo the Chairman thinks lie will
bo persuaded to disappear. That is
not tho way Governor Uoyt conducted
a campaign when chairman or candi
date. Imegino with what impetuosity
Governor Hnyt would havo rushed
down on Wolfo's irregulars at the
head of his well disciplined regular
troops. But Chairman Coopor pro
poses that his buglers instead ol
sounding to tho charge shall retreat
from tho field in tho hopo that Wolfe
and his supporters will Imitato their
oxamplo. J ho chairman a mothod
may be a vory good ono with Green
backers and Prohibitionists except
wncn ii is auvisnnie lo make a coali

pointed directly at his beat). Ho was
frightened. Ho didn't stop to ask any

cord snapped liko u ibread ami hung
in two ends in tho cur. Tho desired
effect was had, however, and niter a
whistle from Ibo ongino Ibo speed was
gradually slackened mid Iho truin
came to a aland still.
Tho main point of attack was, of!
course, tho mossentfcr a sale in tho ox
press car. There wua something like
thirty thousand dollars in this sale.
Tho three robbers curried the express
car ny storm. I hey seemed perfectly
fearless in their movements and did
not t ake any pains lo conceal thoir fea
tures. None of them wore masks.
none of them wore whiskers and tbey
aro described as beardless youths Tho
messenger was in the car. lie could
not reluso to open the sale wilh three
revolvers threatening instant death,
and in a moment thu contemn wero al

ly trnnslerred sixteen or eighteen thou

puckugo, containing f l.i.oijll, they did
not lunch, it wttt u packu 'o ot bills,
but in their basto it was passed over
as Homellniiir ol no particular value.
It required but a very short space til
timo to rob tbo sale and then tbe young
men turned their attention to tho
passengers. Before thu occupants of
tno cur next tho express cur had en
tirely discovered what the mutter was
tho door was thrown open and tho
three robbers rushed in.
"Hold up your hands !" shouted ono
ot Iheiu to tho passengurs, and Iho
barrels of threo revolvers tdeamod in
the rays from tho lamps its they were
pointed down tho aisle ol iho car. No
ono dared to disobey the summons.
Every hand went up in a twinkling
and the scurt u lor valuables began.
Among tho pussengers was a mull
named J. S. Atkinson, a rich cotton
deuler. Uo bad 02,500 in his poekols,
which the robbers were not long in
finding. Small sums wero obtained
from almost every one, making quitoa
respecluolo total. 1 hero was tbo
greatest excitement in tbo car, but no
ono uurctl to move and the vouthltil
robbers had it all their own way. It
was all done so quickly that heloro the
sturtled passengers bad fully realized
their situation tbey had been robbed
and tho robbers had escaped. It was
a most daring pieco of business and a
heavy reward will bo offered lor Iho
apprehension ot tho outlaws.

arrested and aro now in prison.
THE DEMOCHA TIC STATE
Tbe choice of Hon. Orango Noble
of Erie lor State Treasurer by tbe
Domocralio convention at Williams
port from among so many worthy
competitors cannot fail to give satis

vania product. In tbo struggles ot
the oil producers against the Standard
Refining Company be has always
steadfastly resisted Ibat vast and un
scrupulous monopoly when somo other
oil producers succumbed to its power
and became sharers of its spoils. His
fidelity to the cause of tho producers
was amply demonstrated in tho last
session ot tho legislature by his earnest
support ol the ireo nipo bill as a mem
ber of tho House. Tho bill passed tbe
llouso by a largo majority, but was
defeated by tho advocates and attor
neys ot the Slundurd monopoly among
tho most active of whom was Senator

"A FOR TUX A TE XOM1XA

editor of tho Philadelphia 7"imr, in
aiiuuing to mo williamsport nomina
tion. Ho conlinuos: Orango Noblo
has twice been choson Mayor of Re
publican Erio, and is a member of tho
present Homo, representing iho same
constituency. It is fortunate that tho

who possesses Mr. Noblo's tinblt

and rocord bear tho closest scrutiny,
and- the only result likely from the
failure ol Mr. Davis at Williannpnrt
will bo to Increaso tbo volo of Wolfo
in this cily. In all of Mr. Wolle's

around the Legislature Mr. Noblo
stood abreast with Wolfe on every
