WEDNESDAY EVBN'G, MAECH3.1880.
A Significant Admission.
In regard te the subject of free passes
the Pennsylvania railroad company's
beard of directors, in their annual re
port te the stockholders, -which has just
been widely advertised, " weulAsay that
great care has been taken during the
past year te confine their issue te the
lowest possible point, and that a very
great reduction has been effected. They
will endeavor te still further limit this
privilege and te issue no free tickets ex
cept where the same may absolutely sub
serve the interests of the company."
That seems te be a geed resolution and
yet they may be issued where they will
best subserve the interests of the company
and greatly wrong the public interests
and public morals. Fer instance we see
that some of the judges of the supreme
court, and in this state and their fam
iliesare riding en free passes ever this
railroad, which, from their use since Jan.
10, we presume have been reissued for
the current year. If this is the case it is
a proper question te be raised by the pub
lic and the press, a very fitting one te be
:isked at the stockholders' meeting,
what interest of the company is subserv
ed by giving a free pass te a judge
of the supreme court and his family. It
may be easily demonstrable that a very
important interest is subserved by giving
this valuable consideration te these who
are made the arbiters in many important
cases in which the Pennsylvania railroad
company is a party. Put when the offi
cers of the railroad company explain that
this is hew they square the distribution
of passes with the declarations of their
report it will be in order for the people of
the state te call en their judges and bid
them answer hew they can explain their
The Telegraph War.
The monopoly which the Western
Union telegraph company has for many
years succeeded in maintaining seems
about te end, through the efforts of a
strong combination of capitalists te se
cure pasture in the rich field. The one
party is just as selfish as the ether and
neither has any solicitude for the inter
ests of the public ; but in this competi
tion the public are sure te reap the
benefit of cheap telegraphing, and will
therefore leek en with complacence
at the war. The "Western Union is
entitled te no sympathy since it
has taken out of its business all it
could get and has piled up the capital, en
which it demands a dividend, by syste
matically buying up every opposition
project that get its heajd far enough
above water te be formidable. There is
a class of men who have grown rich by
their many successful attempts te start
companies for the only purpose of com
pelling the monopoly te buy them out.
The telegraph companies that have
arisen only te be engulfed in
the "Western Union at a large profit
te their projectors may be numbered by
the score ; and the consequence is that
the purchasing company finds itself new
with an immense capital, many times
greater than the cost at which its lines
can be reproduced, and forced te meet
the competition of a new and vigorous or
ganization which, as it is supported by
men of means and influence, is strong
enough te attempt the overthrew of the
old company and will find greater profit
in making the effort than in selling out
out te it. The prospect seems fair that
this time the competition with the old
monopoly will be sustained, te the great
advantage of the public.
The Intelligencer was one of the
first journals of the state te call atten
tion te the fact that numerous corpora
tions within its borders were escaping
the payment of their taxes, either by
their own criminal neglect te make
proper returns te the auditing depart
ment, or by the failure of that depart
ment tp exercise its knowledge and its
authority te compel from them payment
of their everdues. One of the most fla
grant of these was the famous case of
the dissolving transportation companies,
te recover a part of whose taxes the state
had te pay a pair of attorneys a $19,000
fee, while its own attorney general took a
bribe of $5,000 from the company inter
ested, te which he allowed an abatement
' of $50,000 all of which would have been
saved by proper efficiency in the auditor
general's office. The present auditor
general, Hen. "Win. P. Schell, entered
upon his duties with a purpose te call
the delinquents te account, and hew well
he has succeeded may be inferred from
the fact that in his annual report just
issued, he says that en account of taxes
overdue en Dec. 1, 1878, he collected
$429,443.59. " In illustration of the abuses
which suffered this enormous delinquency
te accumulate, he says :
It was ascertained that many corpora
tions had escaped all taxation from the time
of their organization, by a persistent
neglect or refusal te register in this office
as required by law. It was also ascertain
ed that many corporations had managed te
escape a large portion of their taxes by
making partial or incorrect returns te this
office ; also, that a large amount was lest
through a very general misunderstanding
of the laws by many banks, bankers,
brokers, notaries public, cities and ether
municipal authorities, theatres, registers
and estates, in regard te celletcral inherit
ance tax, township assessors, and in fact
by nearly every branch of the revenue ser
vice. In a general review of the whole
field, the department became satisfied that
iu many instances the plainest previsions
of the law had been entirely disregarded,
though many of these violations of the
law had undoubtedly been unintentional.

The ancient gibe against the young lady
who was only" Piscepal pious" is new
matched by the story of the interesting
stranger at camp-meeting, who replied te
the usual question asked by a young apos
tle of the emotional schoel: "My dear
young friend, have you get religion?"
"Oh ! no, indeed, thank you. I'm a Pres
byterian." It occurs te the Natien that "side by
side with the demand for ' a strong man '
in the presidency there has grown and is
growing another demand, and one which
has a larger future, for a man of stainless
character, who keeps tjoed company, and
believes in a government of law ; and it
may get imperious enough te make such
a candidate welcome, no matter from what
party he comes. New is the time te think
of these things."

The pure, and fair-eyed tender toy
Then slumbered deep.
Toe frail, within the Master's hand
My tender llewer shall still expand.
And I will keep
Within my heart of hearts for aye
The name, and but a name te-day.
Which here I press.
A youth light, burdened still I rove.

the child of the old weekly Register, and
under the able mauagment of the publisher,
Mr. Edwin K. Kneule, assisted by Mr. Ed.

cannot de else but succeed. It will labor
te preserve harmony, unity and honesty in

Certainly. We would net misrepresent
you for a small world. We had no idea
that the Chicago convention in any way
endangered your candidacy. Don't dis
tress your sensitive soul en that subject.
By all means don't let Tem Davis frighten
you off the track. Don't change your
course as te hew the county shall be repre
sented at Chicago. It docs net net depend
en your being a candidate for district at
torney. It may net be very important te
the people whether you arc district attor
ney or net. but think of yourself.
It was such a nice "plum," for
three years, and the less of it for three
years only adds te its prospective delicious delicieus
Iiess. Rather than have you with
draw, we would be willing te help you
" en the question of representation." Be
sides there cannot be tee many geed men
running for geed ellices and in cheesing we
always like te go for the "best man."
Think of us before you withdraw. Rather
call en us and we may help you start a
"boom" for Jehnsen for district attor
ney. We will sacrifice anything almost
rather than have you " change '" or with
draw. Don't you de it, either, Jehn.
Just you tell Tem Davis and Adam Eber
ly that if they expect te reach the office of
district attorney they must reach it ever
your " bloodless body. " We implore you
te stick ! Patriots arc scarce who are
willing te sacrifice what you offer te de.
Don't you de it. Saying you are "will

the Microscepical society has for the pres
ent limited itself twenty-five was filled

zens who have the means and the wish te
assist in the establishment of a live scien
tific organization. Contributing member
ship entitles the holder te admission te the
monthly conference meetings of the so
ciety and te all entertainments given by it ;
the cost is five dollars per annum. The
microscopes ordered for the society will be

ready for them se that work will seen
commence ; the formal opening of the
room is te take place April 1. Meanwhile
a conference meeting is announced for the
16th inst., at which the microscope, the
philosophy of its constitution, and the
manner of its operation, will be explained
by the president, Dr. Crumbaugh. The
energy displayed by this new organization
premises well for its future.
Last evening some of the tramps who
are in the habit of bumming around the
bark mill opened one of the hatchways
and left it open. Between 7 and 8 o'clock,
when it was quite dark, Richard Smith,
one of the employees, while leaving the
mill walked into the open hatchway and
fell through, injuring himself quite severe
ly, but breaking no bones.
Miss. Margcrct Rhcy and her counsel,
Thes. W. Fcnlen, whose arrest by the
sheriff en a capias in trever, was noticed in
yesterday's Intelligencer, were released

THE AMUSEMENT SEASON.
What Manager JBUhler Says Abent It.
A reporter of the Reading Timet and
Dispatch has had a talk with Manager
Mishler about the amusement season en
the "Mishler circuit," and he has learned
considerable in regard te it. Mr. Mishler
plays shows in fifteen towns, all of which
are in this state with the exception of Wil
mington. Last season the town doing the
best for entertainments was Lancaster,
where the largest houses were drawn.
Scranton was second en the list, with Wil
mington third, Reading fourth, Norris
town fifth, Harrisburg sixth, and Col
umbia thirteenth. Se far this season
Scrauten stands at the head of the list,
with Reading second, Harrisburg third,
Pottsville fourth. Wilmington fifth,
Lancaster sixth, and Columbia fifteenth.
It will be seen by tiiis that Lancaster has
fallen back censide .-ably, while Reading is
rapidly pushing te the front.
There is no reason why Lancaster should
net again head the list, and should the
business' continue as large as it has been
of late we will make an excellent showing
at the end of the season. Within the past
three weeks the following shows have been
here, net all of which were under the
management of Mr. Mishler, however, te
very large audiences. Teny Denier,
Buffalo Bill, Barney Macauley, Fanny
Davenport, " Pirates of Penzance, " Mary
Andersen and Annie Pixley. These of
course are all popular shows, yet their
business has been wonderful considering
the fact that this is the Lenten season.
The largest houses for Manager Mishler
this season, as given by him te the reporter,
are as fellows, Barney Macauley at Scran
ton, 915 ; Macauley at Pottsville, $605 ;
Mary Andersen, Lancaster, $814 ; Rice's
Horrors, Wilmington, $900 ; Fanny Daven
port, Easten, $003. Fanny Davenport,
Reading, $Gle. The receipts for Robseu
and Crane at Scrauten Christmas afternoon
and evening were $1,303, and te Fanny
Davenport belongs the honor of doing the
largest two week's business ever the cir
cuit this season.
Mr. Mishler says that the only town en
his circuit in which he notices a diminished
attendance en account of Lent, is Potts
ville. He has arranged for the appear
ance of a number of companies en
the circuit during the remainder of the
season, among which are the following :
F. C. Bangs, in "Jeseph Balsamo ;" Law
rence Barrett ; Cellier's "Banker's Daugh
ter" company; Nick Roberts's pantemine
troupe ; Helman opera company ; and the
company of the Chestnut Street theatre.
Next year he will manage only the best
companies, as he finds that is only a waste
of money te play inferior ones. He says
he is under many obligations te the news
paper men of eastern Pennsylvania for
their kind treatment of him.
Monthly Tobacco Repert.
The monthly report of the tobacco trade,
issued March 1, by J. S. Gans's Sen & Ce.,
New Yerk, is at hand. The amount of
Spanish tobacco en hand is put down at
30,870 bales, nearly all Havana. Transac
tions in Kentucky tobacco feet up 3,000
hhds., of which 3,000 are for expert, chiefly
te Spain and Italy receipts of new crop
small. Prices for light Kentucky range
from 4 te 12 cents, and for heavy from 4J
te 14 cents. Frem Virginia, reports are
encouraging, the market being active for
old and new tobaccos, prices ranging from
3 cents for the commonest lugs te la cents
for black wrappers. Maryland and Ohie
are reported quiet, but holders are firm in
their demands. Seed leaf transactions
have been extremely dull in New Yerk.
" Lack of assortments, together with the
absence of nearly all our principal
operators ( who are at the var
ious places of production ), have
combined te give our market a holi
day appearance." Running lets of Ohie
are being taken for Germany. " Fer con
sumption Pennsylvania crop of 1878 is
being slowly absorbed, and in the interior
all low-priced lets have been taken out of
packers hands. Activity prevails in 1879
crop all through the producing states."
Sales for the month are reported at 3,873
cases, of which 1,330 cases were Pennsyl
vania. Prices for the crop of 1878 are
quoted at from 14 te 40 for New Eng
land wrappers, and from 0 te 14 for sec
onds and fillers. Pennsylvania is quoted
at from 1G te 33 for wrappers ; 11 te 29 for
asserted lets and from 9J te 10 for fillers.
The expert of seed leaf since January 1st
is 4,982 cases as against 1,813 cases te the
same time last year. Advices from Ha
vana are mere cheerful regarding the new
crop. Trade has been light in manufac
AIKY DALE AGAIN.
The Ghost et the Organ Will net Down.
Many of our readers no doubt, remem
ber the trouble at Airy Dale school house,
Penn twp., caused by a parlor organ being
put into the school house by the patrons
of the school and put out by the school
directors, and finally thrown into an aban
doned quarry or mine filled with water.
As the directors were determined net te
tolerate the organ, and the patrons equally
determined te have it, the latter some time
age made application te have erected an in
dependent school district out of that part
of Peny township in which Airy Dale school
is located. A commission was appointed te
report en the advisability of the new district
and reported in favor of erecting a new
district embracing about one-tenth of the
area of Pcnn township. The old directors
and some ether citizens entered a remons
trance, and yesterday Alderman Barr was
engaged in taking the depositions of
the remenstrants. The burden of
their objections appears te be
that a large proportion of the wealthy men
and heavy taxpayers of the township re
side within the limits of the proposed new
district, and that if the division is made,
the support'ef the schools in the remain
ing part of the township would require a
heavier rate of taxation than is new paid,
and that this would be burdensome te the
poorer class of taxpapers.
A Stelen Watch Recovered.
Week before last while Rebert Fulford,

at the time the watch was taken. Metz

mother, but said he found the watch lying
en the fleer.
