n.eM,vit.vif 1.1m cliiiinnaii of ihotivityef Jdge Poland, who made the
Republican county committee lest the
morals br the young men in this com cem
munily may he corrupted hy the location
of the Democratic headquarters is as un
expected as his appearance in the role
of a moralist and temperance lecturer is
novel. If Chairman Kslileiiuui-sintcn-st
in the morals of the young men, or Dis
trict Attorney Eshlemaus concern for
the pciice ami welfare of the community,
is sincere, he could have begun and con
tinued his missionary work in his own
party years age with credit te himself
and profit te all concerned. Conversions,
like charity, begin at home.
It would have been well, for instance,
if the pious exemplars of his party, who.
some eight yean; age. forged and fabri
cated iialnnilizat ion papers in this city.
had met their just dues. se that the
young men of Lancaster might hae had
set before them a vivid realization that j
the way of the political trangrcer is ,
hard, instead of being taught by c:imiv!
that the perpetration of such iniquities;
commends the offender te renewed facr i

It wvuld hae been well if a Rtpubli-.

of bogus tax receipt-, four years age,
liail been indicted, or at least deposed
from the favor of their parly, toshewthe
young men of this city what a careful
censer of the public morals that party is.
It would have been well if when tiir-e
Republican members of the Lancaster
bar, including Chairman and District'
Attorney I'shlcmaii.hadnided in the pros
titution of the local machinery of justice
te serve the exigencies of the Republican
parly, by saving one of its beat workers,
the Republican court had taken cogni
zance of the imposition practiced upon
il and the disgrace attaching te it.
h would have been well if i-oiee oneel
the pi-rjured Republican politicians in
this county wite, according te the .Vi"
AY', have made its primary elections a
" carnival of fraud," and who. according
te the Ks'uuim r, render it impossible for
any such election te be hemislly held,
bad been indicted, tried and convicted
under the statute law. which prescribes
abundant prohibitions, pains and penal
tics for these crimes.
It would b well if the district attor
ney, in view of the direct charges of
fraud and perjury against well-known
members of his parly, made by the :'.-(t.if.e.-,
in relation te the Second ward
primary election of KSTil, had set upon
them the aldermen, detectives and oli't eli't oli't
cci'e whom lie invokes te push and prose
cute cases of chicken .stealing and ether
offenses net nearly se grave as these
against the purity of the ballet, when
brought te his notice.
it would have been well if Mr. i'shle
man,s party had kept steadily in view
the influence of a geed example for the
young men of the city when they nomin
ated for district attorney this year the
most grossly unlit man at the bar for a
position of such high professional and
populareenlienoe, one who has betrayed
his clients and forfeited all claims upon
public toleration of his offenses, who
holds his tenure at the bar by the indul
gence or judges whose nomination, like
his,was secured by the favor of the worst
class of the corrupt politicians that in
fest this community.
It would have been well it the district
attorney had investigated the charges of
a corruption fund sent hither by one of
his friends in state politics and used in
his behalf te accomplish the direct
bribery of voters and alteration of returns
at the late primary elections.
In short, if the chairman of the Re
publican county committee will only for
one term of quarter sessions turn reform
er in earnest, he can find abundant ex
ercises for his newly discovered talents
in a, cause far mere urgently demanding
his attention than the impending danger
which he depicts te the young men of
this city, who occasionally assemble at
the Democratic headquarters. When
the young men of Lancaster want, te
pass ever the Red Sea, dry shed, they
will hardly call en Eshlciiiau te part the
waters. "When they are , hirst, neither
will they invoke Picaym'- .Jehnsen te

The colored camp-nicctiug in Dctweiler's
grove, under the auspices of the African
Methodist Episcopal church, of Spiingville,
ended last night rather abruptly en account
of the rain-storm. Fer ten days these
meetings have lieen in p:egiess, but en
Sunday only was there anything like a
large attendance. Yesterday was their
big day as far as numbeis are concerned;
and 300 vehicles and 2,M)0 persons were en
the grounds nutwitlislanding the mercury
danced above the nineties and the dust
flew in dense clouds. Several lights, none
of which interfered with the services, took
place, and one accident by which a iittle
girl was knocked down by a horse and run
ever by the carriage from which she re
ceived some injuries. Rider Robinson, of
Lancaster, preached in the morning ; Rev.
of Columbia, in the afternoon, and
Rev. Wells in the evening.

that the court might decide who was enti
tled te her. She is the daughter of Aman
da Stout, but since 187(5 has been living

very respectable colored people and reside

Tobacco 3Iore Interesting Than l'ellli.-
While almost every election district in
the county is forming political clubs, Bart
is ever head and ears in the tobacco busi
ness. We visit the hotels of an even ing in
order te get some new ideas about the
campaign, but are greeted with no con
versation except that relating te tobacco.
Yve stroll across te the postellice, thinking
we may hear sonic of the newspaper arti
cles commented upon, but we are there
deemed te listen te the same strain
tobacco, tobacco. The fact of the matter
is, the people of our village aud vicinity are
net going te bother themselves te any ex
tent about politics or politicians until the
tobacco crop is safely housed, afterward
leek out for some little " Hancock boom "
from "old Bart."
Our tobacco crop is net one of the small
things. Bart will send out about as fair
a crop of geed wrappers for Ib'O as any
ether section of the county. Although
some of the raisers this year are amateurs
in the business we may safely predict geed
results te all.
Among the raisers who are housing a
geed quality iu size and gtewth, may at
present be named I). G. Stcacy, Solemon

Officer Lent;: guarded the rear deer, and
Adams went te the front deer and knocked
for admittance. Soen he heard the step of
a man coming down the stairs and the
deer was cautiously opened. Officer
Adams feu-ed bis way in and
at once recognized Quigley. When Quig
ley saw Adams he ran for the stairs, but
was caught by the officer before he had
proceeded far, and then ensued a terrible
tussle between captive and captor. The
women in this house cried "murder," and
the "ether man" jumped out a second
story window and took te the corn-field.

the bracelets were put en Quigley and he
was brought te town and taken te jail
early yesterday morning. On his way te

have made a mere effective resistance had
he net taken the officer te be ene of
his thieving companions returning from
a midnight raid. Officers Adams
and Lentz deserve much credit for
the persistence, tact anil success with
which they hae hunted Quigley down.
The law has several unsettled accounts
with him. First, he jumped his bail in
the case against him wherein be is charged
with the theft of a quantity of block lead
from the city reservoir grounds. Then he
was seiiw months age charged with the

the stolen shoes te parties in the eastern
section of the city, and it is confidently be
lieved that he wiil be proven te have bad

All old passenger engineer relates this
story of a het box en a certain car years
age as showing the inconvenience and
trouble te which net only the train men
but even the passengers may be put. One
night while running the Cincinnati express
west, when between Ceatcsville and
Parkcsburg, en looking towards the rear
of his train, he noticed :i glare issuing
from the train which lighted up the fields
en both sides of the read bed for a distance,
of a hundred yards. With his experience
he had no trouble iu making out the cause
of the light, aud ou reaching Parkcsburg,
where the train stepped for water, he
went back te sec whether the box could
be cooled. The first leek convinced him
that all such attempts would be fu
tile as the "journal" el the car and
the "brasses" encircling it were at a
white heat. The eugitieuiau told
the conductor he had better awaken the
passengers in the "sleeper" and have
them take another ear. The conductor
thought it unnecessary ; but it was fin
ally agreed te leave the mutter with thu
passengers. A few minutes were spent in
awakening the dreamers aud then in an
other minute or two the occupants of the
car had assembled ou the platform at the
station. The engineer told them he was
satisfied te haul the car if they desired te
remain in it, but explained te them the
danger attending such an undertaking,
stating that the car might go down at any
time and that it was net sale for a minute.
The passengers unanimously decided te
take te another car, and the disabled one
was placed en the Parkcsburg siding.
Frem Parkcsburg it was taken te Lancas

Mount Jey te Harrisburg and from Har
risburg te Thompseiitown where it was
