FEIDAY EVENING, JANUAEY 2, 1880.
The Cameren Plan.
The chairman of the national Repulr
lican committee is troubled with neither
scruples nor tiniiuity.and i the Republi
can party need and is content witn ueiu
rascality as the distinguish feature in its
leadership, Den Cameren is just the man
i t wants. The qualities he has have lieen
the winning ones in the political admin
istration of this state for many eais,
andef late they have been promoted te the
guidance of the Republican party in the
nation. The Pennsylvania .system and
the men who managed it aie entrusted
with the larger task of making the na
tional administration as solidly and un
failingly Republican as they have suc
ceeded in making that of the state.
"Whether their plans and processes will
work as well and unfailingly inthelaiger
field remains te be seen ; if they de they
will have demonstrated their omnipo
tence in the present condition of popular
enlightment and virtue, for they will
ewe much of their success te their un
suspected nature, or te the fact that the
Democratic party, their proposed victim,
is net fully aware of their precise natine
and as fully aroused as foieknewledge
can make it against their success. Tiieie
is nothing of the value of an ambush in
the Republican plan of battle.
Every kind of unfair advantage w ill be
taken, but from the known character of
Mr. Cameion we have ample notice te
prepare for these. It is net, one would
think, te all the Republican voters a very
pleasant thought that their party is te be
led en the Pennsylvania idea and Aith
the Pennsylvania devices, but it lias been
chosen for them fei the campaign of this
year, and they will have the .satisfaction
of knowing that if thcie is a saving ii
tue in the plan it give them the
country, since Mr. Cameion will develop
all its power. He has no ether idea ei
the way of winning a political triumph ;
but of this idea he is the exponent by na
tural disposition, by association, and by
training. If he had Reb Macki-v with
him lie would be su:e te make no mi -take
in his f-i.csse. as it.is lie will piob pieb
ably make r . ny, but he can be ti listed te
redeem then se far as they can be le
decmed by ii tiepidity, dctei initiation,
unscrupuleusniss and rash.
The lcselve te take the .selection of
their delegates te the national com entien
from the Republicans of Pennsylvania,
leached in consequence of a prier
resolve te give the piesidcntial vote of
the party in the state te Cunt, is the
fairest sort of exemplification of the
Cameren processes that could be
imagined. With this mee lie opens
the campaign. Their is no delicacy
about the movement. Ne ceer is
sought for the object. The bald f.ict is
piesented te the Pennsylvania Republi
cans that Mr. Cameren has deteiniiurd
te ghe theii vote te Grant and proposes
te de se by simply calling the state con cen con
entienatso great a peiied ahead that
the delegates may be selected by the
pieseiitmachineiy without prier consul
tation with or autheiity liem the people.
Of course it is obvious te every undei-
standing that the supieme moment lien
cverv voter wants te be consulted by his
party leaders is when the choice of a
pi evidential candidate is made ; and
when a party quietly submits te the se
lectien of that candidate by their leadeis
without consultation w ith the people, its
amiable subset viencv is very notable and
Our experience does
us te entertain any
anv exhibition of this
may be made by the
Ave de net take
in Pennsylvania, and
any inteiest in the
new exhibition that
is ghen us of its
complete control by the men who have
se long manipulated it as they pleased ;
our comment new is upon the fact that
the Republican party in the country lias
passed under the dominion of men who
have reduced it te this state of vassalage
in Pennsylvania, and our wonder is
whether the same success is te attend
their attempt te master it in the larger
field, and te guide the country into its
the sole end that it may cai ry
Mr, Ilajdeu's Cew.
In the " gieat Hajdcn trial," as it lias
come te be called because of its extrava
gant gathering of all things in heaven,
en earth or its wateis into its onmiveious
maw ter the conviction of the piis piis
ener, and with the net lesult el barely
raising a suspicion against him, the latest
essay of the prosecution was te prove
that Haydeifs cow, measuring four feet
one and seven-eighths inches at theiump,
ana four feet and tlnee-eighths of an
inch at the shoulders, leadily and
repeatedly walked thieugh an aperture
in the barn but three feet six and a half
inches high. Perhaps the cow did it as
the witnesses swore that she did ; though
unlimited confidence is net te be placed
in the testimony of a Connecticut witness,
as this trial lias shown ; since en eveiy
material question of fact or science there
is at least one oath each way. But there
is no belting what a cow won't de when
she wants te de it, and it is just as true
that there is mighty little that she
will de when she don't want te de it,1
She gives us her milk only because it
pleases her, and she keeps it whenever
she feels like it. Te drive her in a way
in which she don't want te go is the most
valuable exercise in the attainment of a
patient spirit that can be named and
ought te be put in the regular curriculum
of our public schools for the education of
the scholars in the heavenly grace of pa
tience; the Sunday school schol
ars, at any rate, ought te be
set at driving a cow from her
calf, or her clever, or anything else that
she wants te linger by. Yes, it is credi
ble that the Ilayden four feet cow went
through a three feet hole, and we de net
knew at what sized hole our credulity in
this direction would step. It would be
sorely tried if the commonwealth's wit
ness could be induced te swear that the
hole was narrower than her body's
girth, but if there was a bucket of bran
outside she would try te make it while
her hide stayed en.
We are net well enough, posted as te
"Mary Clemmcr," but we suppose she is
one of these "perpetual nuisances" in pet
ticoats that haunt the lobbies of Congress
and the departments at Washington, and
who had te be "sat down en " during the
time of Grant's administration, and her
mission new is te make it "warm" for
him. Fei its evn cause we would
suggest that it had better in the futuic

The purpose of this oxtieidiuaiy haste
in calling the convention is very plain. It
simply means that Den Cameion is detei
mined te sccuie such a delegation te the
Chicago convention as cm be manipulated
te serve his pui pose. What that pin pose
may be will be known eniy when the time
comes. He cares no mere for Gen Giant,
except se far as Giant's popularity may
sci vc his purpose, than he does for the
inhabitants of the planet Jupiter. He
does have a care, hewcvei , that such dis
tricts as Lancaster county shall net have
an opportunity, by a fair expression of the
popular sentiment, under the lulcs el the
party, te say who shall represent them in
the state convention. He knows tee well
that in such an event they would net be
the men of his cheesing. The p.u ty has
learned something in this direction by
past experience, and would take geed rare
that no mere betrayals should be chaiged
te their account as at Cincinnati in 1870,
and at Haiiisburg last year. On anj thing
like a fair expression of Republican senti
ment in Lancaster county the vcidict
would be eveiwlielminglyadvci.se te a thiid
tei m. Of this the machine managers wei e
fully advised, and hence their eagerness te
have the machine staitcd se eaily that the
people could net overtake it.
It is new for the Republicans of Lancas
ter county te say whether they will allow
the "machine" te be ran ever them ae ae
ceiding te the piegramme of the leaders.
It is manifestly the duty of the chaiiman
of the county committee te call that body
together at the eailiest practical day and
fix the time for holding priin.uy meetings
te cheese delegates te the state com cntieu.
That election could be held en Satuid.vy,
the first of Febiuary. Ne ether ceuisc
will be satisfacteiy te a majority of Re
publicans in this county. Unsatisfacteiy
as is the short time allowed for developing
public sentiment, owing te the indecent
haste of the state committee in calling the
convention at an unpicccdentedly eailya
day, it is the best thing te de under the
ciicumstances, and a stieng element in
the party in the Republican stiongheld
will be satisfied with nothing less.

The many friends of Pi of. Win. M. Nevin
and his wife, of this city, were glad of the
opportunity which the twenty-fifth anni
veisaiy of their maiiingc afforded iheni te
testify the waim ailectien and high re
spect in which they are held by their l da
tives, friends and acquaintances, embrac
ing se many of the most cultured people in
this and Other states. Pi of. Nevin, it will
be remembered, is the second of the fa
mous quintet of Nevin brothers, who and
their families have attained such eminence
in chinch and state that the name is even
widely known and honored in Eiuepc,
The eldest of the five biethcis is Rev. J.
W. Nevin, I). 1)., the distinguished Re Re
feimcd divine of Caernarvon Place, near
this city, new living in schelaily retire
ment fiem active duties. Prof. Nevin is
the second. The thiid is Rev. Daniel
Nevin, of Sewickley, for many jeaishead
of the female institute there. The fourth
is Mi. Thce. II. Nevin, the distinguished
philanthiepist and prison reformer, and the
youngest is Rebcit P. Nevin, esq., editor
and publisher of the Pittsbuigh Leader.
Pi of. Wm. M. Nevin was ycais
age a piofesser in the Sewickley
institute, Allegheny county, but about
1841 was called te a piefcsssiship in Mar
shall college, then in ?Jciceisbuig, Frank
lin county. Fer mere than thirty years he
filled the chair of Latin and Greek in
Mai shall, and in Franklin and Mai shall;
but at the same time he has ever exhibited
Midi laic accomplishments in English
literature and has done se much te cultivate
all the humanities, that when some years
age the alumni piofcsseiship of English
literature was established, its pat ions
w ith a single voice chose him as its first
incumbent signifying by their selection no
less their affection and rcgaid for him
than their appreciation of his fitness for
the place. Since then his chair has been
that of English literature and he has
diicctcd special attention te studies in
the Saxen and te the formative periods
of the literature of the English language.
During all this time he has been prolific of
addi esses, poems, literary sketches, pio pie pio
legucsand ether works for public and pii
v ate occasions, all of which have been as
widely icad as they have been published,
and of which his friends have long been
dcsiieus of having some pennanent collec
tion, te which there has been no obstacle
except their author's own modesty. With
his scholarly accomplishments, however,
Pief. N. lias se blended all the graces of a
gentleman and the affection of a fi iend,
that in the hundreds who have had the
advantages of association with him in the
class and lecture room there were inspired
a love and interest that only ripened and
strengthened and widened with the lapse
It was just twenty-live yeai s age yester
day that Pi of. Nevin was married in Alle
gheny City, the bride of the occasion, new
Mrs. Adelaide Mellicr Nevin, being a
member of the Mellier family, fennerly of
Friei.dship Hill, Fayette county, and well
known siucc in religious, literaiy and
social cii clcs as a most accomplished and
gracious lady, whose qualities of heart and
mind have endeared her te all that have
enjoyed the advantages of her acquaintance.
It was no wonder therefore that any cele
bration of the silver anniv crsary of such a
union should awaken a univcisal feeling
of inteiest among their friends.
Fer days past they have been
in leccipt of many letters fiem old
friends, most happily conceived and felic
itously expressed, conveying these re
gards, while the mere immediate l datives
and intimate friends have sent thein, with
words of love, elegant testimonials of
their affection, alike marked with geed
taste in their selection and a delicate fitness
in their presentation.
Frem 8 o'clock until 11 last evening
Prof, and Mrs. Nevin received their friends
at St. Jehn's rectory en West Chestnut
street, and during this time their pallers
were crowded with a brilliant company,
largely representing the wealth, the fash
ion and culture of this community. At
an early hour the relatives gathered in the
parlors, and Rev. Daniel Nevin, of Sewick
ley, who pei formed the original marriage
ceremony, offered a suitable prayer, after
which Rev. J. W. Nevin, D. D., in a brief
address, closing with a divine invocation,
referred te the spiritual significance of the
occasion, and Rev. T. B. Barker pro
nounced the benediction.
There were present fiem a distance, be
sides Rev. Daniel Nevin, wife and daughter
of Sewickley, Mr. Rebert P. Nevin (of
the Pittsburgh Leader) and wife ; Mis.
T. J. Fisher and Miss Jennie Cieigh. of
Huntingdon, cousins of Prof. Nevin ; Mr.

family; Mr. Mellier. of St. Leuis,r. bi ether
of Mis. Nevin ; Mrs. Tettcn, of Allegheny,
a sister of Mrs. Nevin ; J. B. Kremer of
Carlisle, son-in-law of Prof. Nevin, and
etheis who by their presence delighted te
honor the host and hostess.
The guests weic formally received as
they at rived and handsomely entertained,
and the hours flew swiftly in delightful
sec'.al festivities. At the leave-taking for
tlic occasion there was a universal expres
sien of hearty enjoyment of the anniver
sary and of geed wishes for the long-continued

The business men of Lancaster city com
mence the new j ear under veiy favorable
ciicumstances, and with every prospect of
realizing greater profits than during any
year since the commencement of the finan
cial panic. A visit te the various iudus
tiial establishments ycstci day showed that
all weie in operation, some of them with
mere eidcrs than could be filled, and that
each branch of trade felt the effects of the
revival in business. The establishments
fiist visited were the cotton mills, and at
each it was found that every spindle was
moving and every hand that could be made
available had full employment.
At the two Conestoga cotton mills,
owned by Jehn Fainum te Ce., there are
20,000 spindles in operation, and 12 miles
or about 22,000 yaids, of ticking turned
eutcveiyday. These mills aie models in
their way ; always kept in the best possi
ble condition, and suppli2d with all the
modem impievemcnts. They have never
been stepped since 1802, and irem that
time te the present the daily product has
been about 22,000 yards. 7000 bales of cot
ton are used every year, and the hands
number 830, twe-thiids of them being
At the Conestoga steam mills, known as
Ne. 1, about 300,000 yaids of fine shiit
ings and ether muslins aie made. It is
the only mill, it is said, in the county that
makes nankeen goods fiem cotton grown
for this mill. The seed for this cotton,
which is the color of nankeen, was first
hi ought te this ceuntiy by General
Forsyth, of Geeigia, and the first yaid of
goods made fiem it was in the mill of the
late Jeseph Ripka, of Philadelphia. The
seed of this cotton has te be obtained fiem
China about eveiy four years, for, if
allowed te giew longer than this in our
soil, it becomes white like ether cotton.
There are 12,000 spindles in the mill, em
ploying 330 hands, and using up
200 bales of cotton each mouth. This
mill has also been ran without stepping,
except for holidays, since 1873.
At the Allendale mill there arc 3,000
spindles and 150,000 yards of colored duck
are made monthly, consuming in the man
ufacture 200 bales of cotton each
month. The Fulton mill, owned by the
same parties, turns out fancy ducks at the
rate of 1,000,000 yaids a year. In the two
mills 379 hands aie employed and all find
constant work. These mills have also been
run en full time during the dull times.
The Conestoga mill known as Ne. 4 has
just commenced operations again, in the
manufacture of fine yarns. There 3,150
spindles in the mill, and about 50 bales of
cotton aie used monthly.
Among the new cntci pi iscs in the city
is the Lancaster watch company. They
own 3, acics of land within the city limits,
and near where a number of new buildings
have been erected during the past year.
On ibis land a brick stiucture has been
built, which is 40 by 190 feet and three
stories high, and fitted up with all the
necessary machinery for making fine
watches, and which is ran by a thiity thiity
heisc power engine ; 140 pet sons aie em
ployed, and at present the company are
making twenty-live watches or movements
a day, which sell at from $18 te $100 each.
The movements, before being sold, are
put upon ice for eight hours, and then
baked in an even for eight hours mere, se
that, wheu in use, the variations of tern
pcraturc will net affect them.
The iron workers in the city and county
are all busy filling orders, and te de this
the mills and furnaces are kept going te
their fullest capacity.
The Pcnn iien cempanv own the larire
lolling mill in the city, and are new em
pleying 22e men m the manufacture of
belts, railroad spikes, nuts, merchant iron,
&c The quantity made is about 175 tens
per week. At tlic Conestoga furnace 130
tens of pig iien is made, with the one
stack in blast. The Lancaster belt factory
isalse running en full time, filling eidcrs
that are constantly being received.
There is eue large stack at the Mount
Hepe chaiceal furnace turning out 75 tens
per week. The estate that owns this fur
nace is entitled te all the ere needed for one
stack free fiem the Cornwall erebank.
Along the Susquehanna, and within the
county of Lancaster, there are a number of
furnaces in full blast. Among them can
be named the St. Charles furnace, with one
stack, ard the Henry Clay furnace, adjoin
ing, also one stacK. the two turnin? out
about 350 tens of pig-iron per week.
Chicques furnaces, Nes. 1 and 2, each '
with one stack, are making 300 tens per
week ; the "Watts furnaces, Nes. 1 and 2,
are running two stacks, with a capacity of
200 tens, and the Denegal furnace, with
one stack, turns out 100 ten per week
The Musselman furnace has one stack,
which was recently put in blast. It has
a capacity of 200 tens per week. At the
Susquehanna rolling mill, about 150 tens
of bar iron are made each week. WitbH
constant employment for iron-workers and
geed crops for tobacco-growers, Lancaster
cannot fail te be gieatlv bcnelitcd dining
the year 18S0.
GRAND rOULTKl .,HOV
Admirable Collection of the Feathered
Tribe List erEntrie, Arc.
Whatever doubts may have been enter
tained as te the success of the poultry ex
hibition, which opens te-day in Lecher's
building, under the auspices of the Lan
caster ceuntiy poultry association are
rapidly dissipated under the logic of
events. Yesterday afternoon and this
morning there has been a continuous ar
rival of the fowls entered for competition,
and thesp have been put in place as rapidly
as could be done by the committee having
the matter in chaigc. The entries, as
will be seen by the list herewith pub
lished, embrace almost eveiy appieved va
riety of peultiy and pet stock. The liberal
premiums elfcred by the sedcty, supple
mented by the liberal special donation
premiums fi"eied by individuals, has had
the effect of gathei ing together the finest
exhibit of poultry, pigeons and pet buds
ever seen in this city. The suite of looms
selected for the exhibition are large, com
fortable and well-suited te the pmpese.
The coop., in which the birds aie shown
are all new and of uniform sie and shape,
and are ai ranged in such manner as te
show off the exhibits te the best advan
tage and at the same time make them of
easy access te visiteis. The fient loom,
second fleer (feinieily used as the libiaiy
loom of the Y. M. C. A.), is devoted ex
clusively te the exhibition of Asiatie fowls,
including light and dark Brahma1-, white,
black, bull" and partridge Cochins. The
exhibits in this department aie especially
fine, the fowls and chicks being pure
breed, very huge and of fine feather.
The middle loom (fermeily used as the
ladie's parlor of the Y. M. C. A.) is devot
ed exclusively te the exhibition of ban
tams and pigeons. Of bantams
there is a veiy fine display,
including black-bieasted leds, hi own reds,
yellow nud silvci duckw ings and red and
white piles. Of pigeons the exhibit is un
usually line, the entries embracing almost
eveiy fancy variety, including earners,
peutcis, b.nbs, fantails, tumblcis, turbits.
I tiunrpctcrs, Antwcips and a de;cn ether
varieties. During the show theie will be
'one or mere "pigeon Hies," and the con
testing biuls will be placed en exhibition.
The exhibition of mocking biids and ca-
narics was net at neon te-day very huge,
but the birds exhibited are line speci
mens. In the i.ugc loom (feinieily used as the
Y. M. C. A. lecture loom) aie exhibited
a gieat variety of fowls and ehicks, in
cluding games of all varieties, black and
geld and silver spangled Handlings, black
Spanish, black, w hite, brew n and Andalu
sian Leghorns, Plymouth Rocks, Polish of
all vai ieties, Houdens, CicveCceurs, doik deik
ings Suhans, etc., etc. Then there are
turkeys, ducks, and geese of almost all
varieties. All the departments are repre
sented by splendid specimens and we fear
the judges will in some cases have a little
tumble te decide who shall cany away
the lirst premium.
A very attractive part of the exhibit m
the Luge loom is the patent incubator,
which continues te hatch out chicks every
hour, without the aid of a hen. Seme two
dozen chicks have been already hatched
out, and are as active and "pe.ut" as
though they had been hatched by a cluck.
As seen as they are able te walk which is
within a few hours after they are
hatched they are transferred from the in
cubator te a large plate-glass show case in
which they show themselves te visitors.
Seme hundreds of chicks will be thus
hatched out during the live days that the
exhibition will last. The first chicks
hatched were principally of the white
Leghorn variety, but many ether varieties
will be hatched out during the show.
Among the towns most largely repre
sented by entries, outside of Lancaster,
may be mentioned Spring Garden (which
sends no less than 29 coops of fine few Is),
Marietta, Mount Jey, Sti ashing and
Litiz ; and in addition te our local enl ries
are etheis from Yeik, Dauphin aid Erie
counties, and New Jersey.
The exhibition is well worth a visit net
only by fanciers but by citizens generally.
Apart fiem the the very fine display the
ci owing of the cocks fei ms a very inter
esting feature. Here is the deep bass
voice of the heavy Biahmas and Asiat
ics ; there is the shrill treble of
the bantams, and these extremes
arc answered by the clear defiant tones of
the games, while the varying voices of the
Polish, Spanish, Hambuigs, Deikingsand
ether varieties make up a fitting cheius te
the grand concert, which almost, but net
quite, drawns the gabbling of the geese, the
quacking of the ducks, the cooing of the
pigeons and the waibling of the canaries.
In connection with our notice of the
poultry show it is only justice te make
special mention of the untiring labeis of
air. J. B. Lichty te make the show a suc
cess. Fer weeks pisthc has given a
great part of his time te
the work, and the success
which has crowned his efforts attests
the skill and judgment which lie brought
te the weik. Mr. Charles E. Leng, win.
Scheenberger and J. C. Burrevves are also
deserving of special mention for their
labor of love.
