A Bad Showing for the Repub

The Lancaster county agricultural and
horticultural society met in their room in
city hall, this city, yesterday afternoon, at
The following members and visitors were
Messrs. Jeseph F. Witmer, president,
Paradise ; M. D. Kendig, secretary,
Maner ; II. M. Engle, Marietta ; Fmnk R.

James Cellins, Colerain : A. D. Hestettcr,

President Witmer, from the beard of
managers, reported that the beard had held
two sessions for the purpose of preparing
a list of premiums for the proposed county
fair, and had completed the list se far as
fruits, Hewcrs, domestic products and some
ether departments. The beard would held
another session this afternoon and endea
vor te complete the list.
The committee appointed te audit the
books of ex-Treasurer Greif, reported that
they had attended te their duties and
found there remains a balance in Mr.
GrefTs hands of 68.99.
Levi S. Reist, of Oregon, Manheim
township, reported that crops in general
are about ten days ahead of their usual ap
pearance at this date ; wheat leeks very
premising ; apples, cherries and peaches
are uninjured and in very full bloom ;
pears premise a fair crop ; it is tee early
yet te predict the condition of small
Mr. Engle never saw the wheat crop
mere premising than at preseut ; grass and
eats leek well ; it is tee early as yet te
form a correct estimate of the fruit crop.
The apple and cherry trees are very full of
blossoms, and if one-tenth of them come
te perfection there will be a very full crop.
The pears de net premise se well, and, as
the crop last year was very large, the prob
ability is that this year's crop would net
be se line. The rainfall for April was 2
inches, and for March 3 1-16.
Mr. Liuville said the early planted
wheat leeks very rank, and is beginning te
fall down, while the later planted and
mere backward wheat has been helpedby
the continued wet weather, that of earlier
and stronger growth has been damaged.
In his neighborhood the peach crop will be
a failure, the young fruit having been
killed by the frost. Many of the young
cherries, also, have been killed, but there
are enough left te make a geed crop ;
there will be only a partial crop of pears.
The two-year-old grass leeks well ; of last
year's grass there is none. It is a curious
fact that wherever the clever fields were
closely cropped last fall the clever new
leeks well, while in these fields or patches
where the dead grass was allowed te re
main, the roots have died out.
Mr. Engle had noticed the same fact.
Jehnsen Miller reported that with con
tinued favorable weather there is premise
of the largest crop of wheat in Warwick
ever harvested ; the young clever leeks
well ; grass is short and indicates a short
crop of hay. The old clever was badly
damaged by the dearth of last summer,
and much of it is dead ; some farmers
have already planted corn ; potatoes are
up ; fruit trees are in bloom and premise
an abundant crop.
Calvin Cooper and W. L. Hershey re
ported favorably from their respective
M. D. Kendig reported as a seirewhat
remarkable fact that during the cold
weather of last month when ice formed te
the thickness of three-quarters of au inch,
young tobacco plants, with no ether pro
tection than the bristles with which they
were covered, escaped injury.
Mr. Rush reported tobacco plants as
small and backward in growth ; they will
net be lit te set out for two or three
Dr. C. A. Greene read an essay en poul
try, as fellows :
Fer forty years, with occasional inter
ruptions, it has been my fortune (as boy
and man) te care for poultry, and some
experiences I have gathered during these
years I propose new te make public for all
who are interested in the matter ; and for
convenience sake I will arrange the facts
under different heads.
1. Hens, if properly kept, are a source of
profit and comfort te the owner.
2. The eggs can be increased in size
and richness by proper feeding of the
3. They require a variety of feed, and
get excessivly fend of one kind.
4. The egg contains almost all the con
stituents of the human body, and hence
the hen must have a variety of feed te
5. Ne ether product of animal or vege
table life contains substances exactly like
the albumen and yolk of an egg.
C. The hen ceases laying when improp
erly fed or when in a diseased condition.
7. They require a warm, clean, properly
ventilated house for winter months.
8. If by neglect vermin infest the bird
roosts and house they should at once be
removed, as they are deleterious te the
health of these friends of man.
9. The droppings of the hens should be
occasionally removed. They should net
be allowed te accumulate. The floors should
be covered with loam or sand.
10. As hens require a deal of water,
drinking only a small quantity at a time,
it should be supplied abundantly and kept
clean and fresh.
11. As they require and must have, car
bonate and phosphate of lime for their
shells, it must be given them pure, in un
stinted quantities, and in the most conve
nient manner for them te pick up and
swallow into their crops.
12. These requirements will be' found in
old plastering, broken oyster shells and
best of all in fresh bones, with some of the
I gristle and meat attached. It should be
cut up en a leg with a hatchet every day,
the strike made by the fowls te get at it
when offered them will plainly prove te
you that they like and need it. The in
stincts of the hen in summer, with a prop
er range, will teach it what and where te
collect the variety of feed required. In
winter when housed men must supply it te
13. As hens have no teeth, and drop
their feed into their craws unmasticated,
in order te digest it they must have access
te stones and gravel, which being swal
lowed takes the place of teeth in their
stomach, hence they must have a liberal
supply of gravel.
14. The application of sulphur
sprinkled upon the fowls while roosting or
otherwise with a pepper box, will destroy
vermin. Ceal oil applied te their roosts
in small quantities will also kill parasitis.
Twe or three drops of whale oil, dropped
occasionally en the back of a hen or any
ether bird will kill the lice.
15. The nests must be occasionally re
newed and kept clean. Tobacco stems
covered with straw is an excellent preven
tion of insects breeding, especially when
they are setting.
16. When clucking and net needed for
mothers, the quickest way te step their
chicken-raising desire is te put them in
boxes or cages without anything te lay
upon except the beard.
17. A few fowls in separate pens are
much mere profitable and easier kept
healthy than in larger numbers.
18. They require and must have in winter
green feed, such as grass, turnips, beet or
19. The temperature of a coop should
net be allowed te be lower than 43 de
grees in winter and should be most of the
time up te 00 degrees.
20. Cern and wheat middlings, corn
un;round, eats, bread and ether slops from
the house should all be fed, changing as
often as twice a week.
21. Like cows, horses and ether stock
harsh treatment injuries them. They like
a kind master, and knew his voice as quick
22. Hens should be killed when three
years old, as they lay less eggs every year
after the third, and besides they naturally
become diseased and aic net se geed eating
23. The sooner in the spring you com
mence setting the hens for the purpose of
raising the chickens the better ; late chick
ens generally fair badly.
24. Pullets rarely make geed mothers;
three and four-year old hens arc best.
23. The best layers are the white, black
and red Leghorns, and light Brahmas.
Dr. Greene also stated tbat black pepper
sprinkled freely from a pepper-box en
cabbage plants will rid them of all vari
eties of insects. It should be sprinkled en
early in the morning while the dew is en
tiie plants, and if one dose don't drive eif
the bugs give them another.
Mr. Engle's method was te kill the cab
bage moth which begins te fly about this
time of the year. He sometimes hires
boys te kill them, p.iying 50 cents per hun
dred for them. They can be easily knocked
down by switches, especially in the cool of
the morning. Te kill the yellow striped
bug that infests cucumber wines he ues
paris green, put en the vines when wet.
Te destroy the circulie, various devices
are recommended, as the burning of coal
tar under the trees, sprinkling the leaves
with ashes, &c. His mode of destroying
the codling moth is te scrape off the rough
bark of the apple tree and wrap the trunk
a short distance above the ground with
bauds of hay, straw or canvas. In this
way great numbers of them may be caught

Jehn H. Laudis donated te the society
the annual reports of the state agricul
tural society of Illinois for the years 1877,
1878 and 1878, and was voted the thanks
of the society for the same.
"Should potatoes be cut into small
pieces for scediug ?" was the question that
led te a long discussion, participated in by
II. M. Engle, J. G. Rus.ii, W. II. BreMus,
J. C. Liuville, Jehn II. Landis, Dr. C. A.
Greene, Jehnsen Miller and ethers, a ma
jerity of whom favored raising for seed
large potatoes, cut se thj.t tliere should be
net mere than one or two eyes te each
cut. On the ether hand it was shown that
excellent crops had been grown from
small potatoes planted whole, as also from
potato parings and sprouts.
Hilling and Drilling Cern.
" Which is the better way te plant corn
in hills or drills?" This question was
answered by J. G. Rush of Pequea, who
favored drilling in the seed in rows, the
grains te be placed about 18 inches apart
in the rows, and the rows three feet apart.
51. D. Kendig favored planting in hills
two or tree grains te the hill, and the hills
three feet apart. By this plan the field
can be cultivated it both directions cross
wise as well as length-wise, which he
thought te be a great advantage te the
corn and an effective mode of destroying
Jehnsen Miller had always favored hill
planting until, about six years age, by way,
of experiment, he was induced te plant
three acres drilled in rows, and alongside
of it three acres planted in hill. The
soil and cultivation was the same in both
cases, but when he came te measure the
corn lie found that he had grown forty-five
bushels mere en the drilled than en the
hilled field. He has since that time drilled
in his corn and has had from ten te twelve
bushels per aero mere than by the old
Mr. II. M. Engle favored hilling. Mr.
Jacob Bellinger drilling ; Levi S. Hoever,
hilling; Wm. II. Brosius, drilling, espec
ially en hill-sides, as the drill could be run
across the hill-side and prevent washing;
Ames Eshleman favored drilling and Pres
ident Witmer hilling, and each speaker
was sure his own plan was best ; Mr. J. C.
Linville thought tbat where corn was te
be followed by wheat the com stubble
could be mere easily plowed under when
in drills than in hills.
"What proportion of tobacco should be
cultivated by our farmers?" was the next
Israel L. Landis thought that from 5 te
6 per cent of the clear farm land might be
profitably devoted te tobacco, which is
the best paying crop a Lancaster county
farmer can cultivate. Seme farmers who
feed a great deal of stock can grew a still
larger percentage, without interfering with
ether crops or running down their land.
The danger is, if tee much be attempted,
the laud may deteriorate as has been the
case in the Connecticut valley, and else
where. Eph. S. Hoever took much the same
Wm. H. Brosius thought there was net
much danger of either running down the
land or producing tee much tobacco, the
production of which has added vastly te
the wealth of the county, and given geed
homes te hundreds of families who other
wise would net have a home.
Mr. Engle thought that while gentle
men were' sliewing tHe great advantage
obtained by the growers of tobacco, they
ought te be able te point out some advan
tage, if there is any, te the user of it.
Many a family is in want of bread because
the husband and father spends his earnings,
te gratify his taste for tvoacce.
Jehnsen Miller thought net mere than
three per cent, of a farm should be devoted
te tobacco ; Ames Eshleman thought that
two per cent, was enough.
After some further discussion Peter S.
Reist moved, as the sense of this society,
that net mere than five per cent, of the
farm should be devoted te tobacco, and
the motion was agreed te.
Questions for Next Sleeting.
" Dees fermentation increase the nutri
tive properties of feed?" Referred te H

should the stirring of the soil cease ?" Re
ferred te Jacob Bellinger.
" What are the relative values of timo
thy and clever hay as feed ?" Referred te

te cut grass for hay?" Referred te Calvin
Several packages of rye, eats, barley,

ew Yerk's Insurance Bureau.
Irregular Practices for Republican Prelit.
New Yerk Cor. Philadelphia Times.
There never was a better illustration of
the possibilities of politics than that
afi'erded by the Smyth developments of
the current week. I presume that the
country at large regards the fight between
the Mutual life insurance company and
Smyth as the simple outgrowth of a per
sonal desire en the part of the insurance
superintendent te feather his own nest and
the very natural disinclination of the cor
poration te have it feathered at their ex
pense. Nothing can be further from the
fact ; and when I tell you that the denoue
ment is one of the most serious blows that
the Republican party in this state has re
ceived in some time you will sec that its
proportions are much greater and its bear
ing much mere significant than they
would be were the quarrel simply a
personal one. As a matter of fact I be
lieve it is one of the most pronounced
and vigorous blows that the Grant party
in this state, and therefore in the country,
has received. As near as I can get at it,
Mr. Smyth, who is an extremely wide
awake, quick-witted and audacious (Re
publican, has been of mere practical iser
viee te his party during the past five years
than any twenty men in the state. His
faculty for organization, for manipulation
of men, for the conduct and successful
issue of legislation, and, above all, his
faculty for raising money for campaign
purposes, are net only above the average,
but are really remarkable. That mere or
less legislation all'ecting great corpora
tions is attempted at every session I need
hardly tell you. Impecunious members of
the city and the country leek with great
anxiety for the list of committees, each
hoping for a geed place en the committee
of cities, the judiciary committee and the
ways and means committee.
In these three committees centre the
hopes and about them circle the fears of
the managers of our railroads and our vari
ous moneyed institutions. Se careful de
they have te be that all of them find it
necessary te employ and keep en hand ex
perts, ex-legislators and lobbyists, who
are constantly en the alert for jobs which
may be neatly tucked in the belly of a bill
without any exposure of the danger which
their presence really implies. Experience
with the Tweed ring but why we should
always step ami go no further back than
the Tweed ring is one of the marvels of
the age ; this sort of thing has been going
en ever since human society had its organi
zation, but it is the fashion te date all cor
ruption and all demagegism back te the
era of peer old Tweed, and unconsciously
I have fallen into that habit has taught
the managers of our larger corpora
tions that it is cheaper in the long
run te pay for honest legislation, for
legislation which is based in equity
and which conscientious lawmakers will be
supposed te secure without compensation,
than it is te be put in peril by legislation
which may be put through by designing
men for their own corrupt ends. A gen
tleman said te me this very morning, in
speaking of the discrimination bill, that
' Vanderbilt might very much better have
contributed $30,000 te the Republican
campaign fund, out and out, than te be
put te the expense of an army of lobby
ists and the annoyance, net te say illegal
ity of influencing legislation in the ways
that are common in our state capital."
That bribery and corruption have been
rife in Albany for years is no secret te
anybody. That men have gene from their
humble homes glad te get the per diem
allowed by the state as a means of sup
port is equally well known, and that they
have returned after one or two sessions
rubicund of face, comfortable in paunch
and well lined as te pocket with bends and
real estate galore is painfully evident te
the man who keeps au courant with affairs.
New what may be the very inside fact in
relation te Smyth's personal honesty I
eave nothing te say. He stands very well
se far as I knew, in that regard. Of
course there arc reports about him, as
there are about all public men, but it is
generally conceded that he is an honest
man. Nevertheless that Smyth is looked
upon as the raiser of great campaign
funds is a certainty.
In order that you may exactly under
stand the preteut situation I will briefly
recapitulate the points. The Mutual life
insurance company has leaned upon, in
round numbers, some 8,000 pieces of city
property. Its assets, as you knew, are
$88,000,000. Of this a large, a very large,
proportion, of course, is constantly leaned
upon bends and mortgages and such secu
rities as the law permits. New it is fair
te assume that this or any ether company
in making leans upon real estate is careful
first of all, te see that it can read the titles
clear, and searches, involving large expen
ditures, are necessarily made by experts
and lawyers, whose signatures are appended
te the documents. Notwithstanding this,
it is customary, once in many years,
te have these searches indorsed. This
was done a year or two age, and a few
weeks age Mr. Smyth went through the
literal, tangible evidence of the existence
of the securities. In ether words, they
were all counted literally in the presence of
the officers of the department. Judge,
then of the amazement of the officers of
the officers of the three insurance compa
nies in this city who received the notifica
tion when they read Mr. Smyth's demand
first, that they should have these titles
searched, second, that inasmuch as he was
te go out of office in less than a fortnight
after the date of his demand it would be
necessary te have a report made in season
te enable him te make his report te the
Legislature, and third, that this examina
tion should be placed in the hands of a
law firm in this city, the chief which is
General Arthur, the head and front of the
Republican party in this state and the
recognized leader of" the Grant move
ment, net only- in this state, but
in the country, se far as finan
cial manipulation is concerned, the sec
ond member being District Attorney Phelps
a leading Republican lawyer .and favorite
Republican candidate in this city and
county. Ihat this search, if properly
made, would occupy the unremitting at
tention of half a dozen experts during the
working hours of six or seven -months, in
volving an expenditure variously estimated
at from $15,000 te $20,000, net counting
the charges te be made by the firm itself,
is of itself a significant fact, rendered still
mere significant by Smyth's saying that
any report tbat these gentlemen would
make in reference te this real estate and
these titles would be accepted by him.
In ether words, if these gentle
men, taking the certificates already
signed by Chief Justice Henry E. Davies
Judge Palmer and a host of miner law
yers and attorneys, and upon these certifi
cates should give their indersement that
the searches were satisfactory, he (Smyth)
would accept it as final. In ether words,
again, the simple indersement of this firm
would be sufficient te compel the company
te pay eutthis enormous amountef money.
New no one believes, and if they did they
would net have the right te say se
new, that General Arthur has ex
plicitly put en record his ignorance
of this Smyth movement, that the firm
per se knew.nething about it. Neverthe
less, the fact remains that General Arthur
is looked upon as the expender of the Re
publican funds and Smyth is looked upon
as the raiser of Republican funds ; and it
is at least an unfortunate coincidence that
this demand should be made en the eve of
a most exciting and expensive campaign.
The sequel you knew full well : that
President Winsten simply sat upon the
superintendent in behalf of his own com cem
pauy and all the ether companies eT the
city, exposing the charlatanry of the
movement, calling the attention of the
country te the illegal requests made by
the officer of the law, and boldly heisting
the flag of unquenchable defiance. -
I chanced te be in Albany at the time
and was witness te the consternation with
which the Republican leaders were seized
upon the presentation of the correspond
ence ill the Legislature. They were
routed, horse, feet and dragoons, and
Smyth was cursed both loud and deep.
But Smyth is a man of resource and a
plucky fellow, tee. Pondering in the in
ner recesses of his mind the situation,
he recalled the fact that within a few
weeks the Mutual life has sold a large
amount of foreclosed property, and assum
ing very naturally, for he had the western
experience of the Connecticut Mutual in
his mind, doubtless, that there had been
heavy losses made by these' sales he tele
graphed te the president for the informa
tion, first, as te what figure ..represented
this property in the last official report,
and second, what amount was realized by
the sale. It was generally believed that it
would show a less of some $200,000, in
stead of which the reply came back within
half an hour, giving the details and show
ing a profit of $197,000 en the sale of fore
closed prejMjrty since the first of January.
Thus ends the chapter, te which a para
graph may be added in reference te
General Arthur, whose condition has
been positively pitiable since the
publication of the correspondence.
Arthur is a man beyond the ordi
nary, whose ambition places him in a chair
in the United States Senate, who holds in
the hollow of his hand the destinies,
very largely, of the Republican party in
this state, who thereby wields an influence
through the entire country, who is re
garded by his friends as the soul of honor,
who never, apparently, did an unjust or a
contemptible deed, but who, nevertheless,
is a political leader of infinite resource,
and who, ncccssairly, does many things as
a pelitican which as a gentleman he might
shrink from the responsibility of. That
the corporations of this city and country
held the legislators of this state and ether
places absolutely in their grasp se long as
they are honest in their intent is made
clear by this attitude of the Mutual life ;
and nothing is mere certain than that for
five ycais te come the slightest advance
toward blackmail or toward uniust and
oppressive taxation, if given at once te the
press and te the public, will be squelched
and buried beneath a storm of positive in
dignation and disgust.
