THUBSDAY EVENING. MAY 2?, 1880.
Outs and Ins.
There is no wonder that Themas Jef Jef
fereon was a stout democrat after his
observation of the royalty of Europe,
during his residence there, since he de
clares that the king of France was a feel,
and also the kings of Spain, Naples and
Sardinia. Thejqueen of Portugal was a
degree worse, being arridiet, and se was
the king of Denmark. The king of
Prussia he descriles as a hog. G ustavus
Adelphus of Sweden and the Emperor
Jeseph of Austria were crazy, and King
Geerge of England was kept in a straight
waistcoat. The Empress Catharine of
Russia was mentally sound, he admits,
however awfully wicked; but then her
royalty was new and se accounted for her
sanity. He maintained that the habits
of royalty necessarily tended te the
mental weakness of the descendants of
kings, and the facts as lie saw them seem,
ed te confirm his theory. And yet he
seems te have liked the English form of
government least of all, although in it
the king does net possess the real power.
He objected te it that it was worse than
a despotism, because its policy was al
ways changing as the outs succeeded the
ins. Tins real power lie declared was
wielded by the aristocracy, formed into
two parties that were in constant conten
tion ever it.aiid entirely unscrupulous in
their efforts te achieve success. He de-
dared it te be the most unprincipled
government existing, and condemned it
furthermore because money and net
mer.ility is the principle of commercial
cessity for its eradication. They natu
rally leek te their contemporaries te in
augurate relief and feel that it will be
futile for them te begin Jt, but they
stand ready te co-operate with men of all
parties te devise some way te make our
popular elections less farcical and demer
It is net the fact, as the Xew Era sug
gests and as has been taken for granted,
that the rejection of the Eighth ward re
turns " removes the shackles which
Brown. Cochran & Ce. had .placed en
Mr. Deniuth, and thus opens the deer te
the election of a Republican member
from the First district." The majority
for Quay instructions in this city was 94,
counting all the wards. His vote in the
Eighth ward was 138 te 100 for Grew,
and of course the rejection of the want
counts out Grew's vote there as well as
Quay's, and while it reduces Quay's ma
jority te 50, it still leaves him a clear ma
jority te " shackle" Mr. Demiith. Mr.
Demuth's friends may claim for him the
right te disregard these instructions, but
such a claim will Ihj promptly met en
the ether side by the claim of an equal
right by ether liieniliers from this county
te disregard their instructions for Glew.
The friends of Quay and the op
ponents of Grew have elected two incur?
hers in the upper district and claim te
be able te lay their hands en the third
whenever they want him; they have
elected Mylin in the lower district and
both of the members nominated in his
district have demonstrated that when
they are needed te vote for Cameren they
can be had. Se te "disregard instruc
tiens ' will
be e.ensive for Grew's
Jeffersen's strictures, however well
founded, certainly apply as strongly te
our democratic government as te that of
England. Meney is just as influential,
and partisan leaders are just as unscru
pulous. The light or the outs against the
ins takes place in every government. In
despotisms it results in violent rev
olutions, while in governments where
the power is conceded te the people, as
it is in England and with us, the revelu
tiens are mere numerous but mere quiet.
When somebody discovers a means of
separating people into these who are
willing te submit patiently te be govern
ed and these who arc willing te govern ;
and shall further learn te limit the num
ber of the. second class te the numlier of
the ellices te l)e filled, the grand secret
will be found by which revolutions may
be dispensed with.
It can hardly be that Jeffersen expect
ed that the government he assisted te
frame could live long without becoming
the prey of the office hunter ; and yet,
from the freedom with which he abuses
the Englishman for his lust of pelf and
power it would seem that he had deceived
himself into the belief that the demecr.it
here was made of different stuff. It
would be an awful thing for us if we did
net change our governors occasionally.
It would be better for us if we changed
them oftener. Whether the motive of
the outs in lighting the ins is selfish or
otherwise, it is certain that if the ins did
net have the fear of the outs lcfere their
eyes, there would be no living in the
country. Our peaceful revolutions arc
our only safeguard ; and neither we nor
the English are te be reproached for
them. We would net have se many of
them were it net for the selfish desire of
men te elevate themselves te power.
They have this incentive te work for the
protection of the people from the rapac
ity and despotism of their present rulers '
and if we profit by their weakness we
need net account it altogether despicable.
The nations of the world want te be
governed by men of such intelligence
and integrity that they will always con
sult and promote the public geed and
never le influenced by considerations of
individual advantage. Theoretically,
that is our need. Practically we knew it
is net te be had and we really de net
seem te desire te have it : for it is a most
notorious fact that men who have estab
lished reputations for just such unselfish
probity and wisdom as make everybody
pronounce them most fit te be our gov
ernors are net, nevertheless,often chosen
certainly they are net necessarily chosen
by reason of their reputation for fitness.
The selfish schemer is very apt te be
preferred te them. One reason for it is
that the people de net govern in our de
meeracy. The jKuiticians generally de
it for them. Conventions give them a
choice of candidates; and conventions
are net famous for selecting the best
man. Then again party spirit blinds the
people who will generally vote for a bad
man in preference te a geed one because
he is of their part-. Thus the lwst
men are steed back.
A xujiitEit of very respectable and
worthy gentlemen of Philadelphia, who
liave generally co-operated with the Re
publican party and new call themselves
the National Republican League, are
going te Chicago as curbstone " dele-gates-at-large
te urge (J rant's defeat for
renominatien by threats of his de
feat at the polls. Their pretest
is entitled te great resect and would
obtain it if a different sort of men were
urging Grant. But the Cameren, Conk Cenk
ling and Legan crowd are likely te treat
them as Schur., Sumner and Greeley,
Trumbull, Palmer and Curtin were
treated in 1872. The machine is te le
run new as relentlessly as it was run then,
and the last illustration of this is in the
proposed substitution of J. Hay Brown
for delegate-at-large from Pennsylvania
in place of Lin Bartholemew, who,
being disposed toward Blaine, has sud
denly discovered that he cannot go and
se he lets in a Grant substitute. Other
Blaine men from. Pennsylvania arc ex
pected te make the same discovery.
Ex-Gov. CniTiN responds te Simen
Cameren's talk about him by giving him
the lie direct; and Wayne Mac Veagh
show liis filial regard for the Lochiel
chief, by helping te organize a delegation
te Chicago, which gees there te defeat
Grant's nomination if pessible: if net,
te defeat his election.

The Crawford County System.
Lancaster Examiner, Kep.
What we are new acting under we agree
is a "disgraceful failure." But that any
public geed is te come of " washing the
dirty linen " of the present or past prima
ries we have our doubts. That the whole
thing "stinks" we are leth te admit,
and we tee could a "tale unfold," but we
arc "tee full for utterance." We prefer
te let " bygones be begenes." There are
many gentlemen whose names have never
been before the uublic. but who have been
in one way or another involved in things
connected with office-getting whose ac
tions it will new de no geed te the public
te expose. And yet all would help te make
the thing mere odious in the estimation of
honest citizens. " Let us have a change,"
comes up from all classes of citizens, with
out any mere filth.
A Hint te Juar.
New that Mr. Quay's Lancaster machine
has " counted " Mr. Quay out of his Lan
caster city instructions, by rejecting the
returns from the Eighth ward(the home of
"the best workers"), it is in order for
Hay Brown te return Mr. Quay his con
tract money. While his abitrary rejection
of the returns from the Eighth ward
removes the shackles which Brown, Coch
ran & Ce., had placed en Mr. Deniuth,
and thus opens the deer te the election of
a ucpueiican memeer irem me nisi
district, the proceeding don't pan out
well as a compliment te Mr. Quay. Tak
ing a man's money te the tune of $3,000
or $4,00 te carry a district for him, and
taking his vote lrem linn by an arbitrary
act, which confesses that his majority was
obtained by fraud as well as pur
chase, is pretty rough treatment even for
a member of a pardon beard which has
covered itself all ever with-infamy.
He nearly carried this city, it is true,
but hew did he de it. The $4,000 he left
with Hay Brown did it. If he could pur
chase only 1,300 votes with that sum, hew
much does the News suppose his seat in
the Senate is likely te cost him, for be it
understood that nobody except a score or
se of personal friends cast their votes for
him voluntarily all the rest were bought
in the open market, varying in price from
fifty cents te four dollars. This method
of carrying en a campaign is in entire ac
cord with Parden Mill Quay's well-known
style of doing business. Luckily for the
people of this commonwealth they have
Ipng known his methods. If they had net
the prompt style iu which he, a sworn
officer of the commonwealth, hastened te
release Kemblc, Rumbergerfc Ce., would
have opened their eyes effectually.
An Independent Suggestion.
If the Republicans of Lancaster would
take the matter in their own hands and
reform their leaders instead of pretending
te reform laws which are odious solely
because they have been abused or defied,
the root of the evil would be reached and
the popular system would speedily vindi
catc itself. And there is an easy way te
de it new. Mr. Smith, who heads the
ticket, is acceptable te all honest Republi
cans : but every machine man and every
anti-machine man who has been nomi
nated by trickery and combinations with
fraud should be marked for defeat. Sena Sena
eor Mylin ewes his place en the ticket te
the disreputable coalition that shamed the
county and the state by its appalling
frauds, and Mr. Davis was nominated for
district attorney by the sacrifice of every
attribute of manhood and political integ
rity. They should both be defeated by
the people, and thus reform the leaders
who would speedily reform the primary
system. It is felly te dally and tempo
rize with political leaders who have
se completely debauched the primary
elections of a county like Lancaster.
They inust be overthrown by sternly
rejecting their bastard nominations, if the
political atmosphere is te be cleared of the
malaria that new pervades it. Wiiere
candidates have gained their nominations
by compacts with fraud, let them be con
fronted with clean-handed and competent
Republican competitors, and if that shall
be done in geed faith the Democrats
should leave the field open for a fair fight
between the traders and the people. One
such battle would reform everything, by
reforming the leaders through the sweet
uses of adversity, and the popular prima
ries would honestly voice the will of the
VukTHBT mwsm mail.

Ex-Gov. Curtin en Simen Cameren.
New Yerk Herald Interview,
Simen Cameren opposed my nomination
for governor strenuously in 1860. I never
applied te him for aid. He was a candi
dates for president at that time, and de
sired the recommendation for that high
office of the convention that nominated me
for the office of governor. My friends be
ing in the majority iu that convention gave
me the nomination, and General Cameren
failed in the object of his ambition at that
time and place. I never borrowed from
him a dollar of money, nor did
he ever give me one dollar te promote
I had the opposition of General Cameren
and his friends during all the period of
time I was governor of this state. He has
never been my personal or political friend,
and I have had very little personal inter
course with him at any time. General
Cameren has at all times and under all
opportunities been persistent in his
defamation of me, and whenever op
portunity offers has always seemed de
sirous te use the newspapers. I have
at all times been careful net te make any
reply or te take any notice of expressions
of his ill will, and would at this time, in
answer te your questions, if they did net
seem an unprovoked and deliberate pur
pose te misrepresent me. My father was
mere than his peer in all respects, and
where he was known and there remain
many memories of his useful and blame

defame his memory or belittle him will be
treated with contempt, referred te the va-

Our " Jap."
Franklin and Marshall college, at Lan
caster, Pa., has a Japanese student,
of the name of MasatakaYomenaka. After
living a while in San Francisce, he became
acquainted with Rev. F. Fex, then pastor
of the Reformed church of that city. He
kindly took a pastoral interest iu him and
through his influence he came te Lancaster
as a student. Being without means, he
made up his mind te travel afoot from San
Francisce te Lancaster, only se that he
could get an education. Through the
kindness of some friends the needed money
te pay his traveling expenses were securetl .
se that he was saved a walk of 3,000 miles.
At that time he had net formally accepted
Christ as his Saviour. But new he has.
On March 21 he was baptized and confirm
ed as a member of the Reformed church,
by Dr. V. E. Gerhart, in St. Stephen's
church, Lancaster. He seems te be greatly
in earnest, and his reception into the Chris
tian church has made a deep impression en
the ether students. It is probable that he
will prepare himself te become a mission
ary te his countrymen, and a co-worker of

The Mining Register.
The initial number or the Mining
Register, published at Lake City, Colerado,
by our one-time fellow citizen James F.
Downey, has come te hand, and presents
a very creditable appearance. The editor
says its publication is net an experiment.
" Its permanency was established before
it was created. It begins life free from
the entanglements of debt, polities, religi
ous bias, social influences, mining 'rings'
or 'corners. ' It is as free as the delight
ful mountain air it breathes. The Mining
Register is pledged te but this purpose :
the development of the mining interests of
San Juan and the business interests of
this eity and county. " Lake City being
in the very centre of the San Juan mining
region, one of the richest in the world in
the production of the precious metals,
premises at no distant day te become a
great centre of population and wealth.
Under such favorable auspices as these
"the new paper " starts, and there is little
doubt, therefore that.it will be a perma
nent and profitable investment te its
owners, and of incalculable value as an
agent in furthering the interests of the
geed people of Lake City. We wish it
the greatest possible success.
The Ftuit Chicago .zpreH.
The new fast train even the Pennsylva
nia railroad, which began its run yester
day, will net only make remarkable time
between Philadelphia aud Washington and
Chicago, but it will be in some features a
far mere comfortable train than was the
limited mail. Since the latter train was
taken oft" the read a year or se since, there
have been several improvements in the
construction of cars, and new platforms
and couplings have beeu adopted, which
tend very much te steady the coaches, se
that although faster time will be made
than en the old train, the journey will be
as comfortable as if it were jogging along
en the old schedule. This Chicago ex
press will leave Philadelphia at 9 o'clock
in the morning, reaching Ilarrisburg te
connect with the train from Washington,
anJ arriving in Pittsburg at 7:30 p. ir. and
at Chicago at 8:20 the next morning. The
run from Philadelphia te Chicago will
therefore be made in twenty-three and a
