The Lessen of tke Battle.
The chief alarm which thoughtful cit
izens will feel at the sweeping Republi
can victory comes from the proven fact
, that in times of general business pros
perity the dominant party may elect any
candidate te the presidency, no matter
what may be truthfully said against his
character. This campaign has been
made against the Republican candidate
rather than against the Republican party.
The candidate was se justly assailed that
it was impossible te think that he would
net weaken the party that presented
him ; it seemed incredible that a man
whom his own party but a few years age
had convicted of selling his official in
fluence for money, and even of perjury,
would command the solid support
of that party te-day for the hijh
est office in the republic That
it dared te offer te de be was a mat
ter of universal astonishment, and was
only accounted for by the admission that
it had forgotten his record when it nom
inated him and put him upon its back.
Xoene will forget the dismay that fell
upon the party when the facts were real
ized, and when shortly afterwards the
Democracy nominated a man of the un
stained record of General Hancock as a
patriot and a citizen Republicans seemed
te be paralyzed with apprehension.
During the campaign that has ensued
no change has taken place in the aspect
in which the two candidates first pre
sented themselves te the people. Gen.
Hancock has come through it absolutely
unscathed ; under the extreme provoca
tion of the unsparing assaults made by
their opponents upon the character of
their own candidate, Republicans have
been unable te retort against that of
Hancock; except, indeed, in the feeble
accusation of General Grant that he was
" weak and crazy te be president." The
weakness and criminality of Garfield,(irst
found by his political friends, has
been iterated and proven by his
iwuilical opponents in this battle, as
it was their right and their duty te de.
It cannot be denied that their accu
sations Mere believed by many Republi
cans, although it is equally probable that
the mass of them were inclined by their
partisan feeling te believe that they were
but partisan slanders ; yet among these
there must have been many who had
such misgivings as would have caused
them, if they could have taken a dispas
sionate view of the matter, te fear their
truth, and te withheld their votes from a
presidential candidate thus open te sus
picion. Certainly if they had been dealing
in their business relations with a person
thus sorely accused, they would prompt
ly have shown him the deer; and would
have thought themselves candidates for
the lunatic asylum if they could even
have contemplated for a moment putting
their affairs and their treasury in his
But all these Republicans have voted
for Mr. Garfield; as well these who be
lieved him guilty as these who con
ceived him innocent ; these who
doubted and these who did net doubt.
He has polled as many votes as any ether
candidate would; possibly even mere;
for the energy displayed in uncovering
his character, with a candidate of better
record would necessarily have been be
stowed upon the conduct of the Republi
can party, assailable in se many points.
The Democracy in fact have been em
barrassed by the many weapons of at
tack in their hands, and in their natural
effort te use them all, have probably
diminished the effect of each. Nothing
is better known te the experienced law
yer than that it is the part of wisdom te
expend his strength upon the strongest
points of his case, that the jury's atten
tion may be fastened there, and lest
otherwise they may be bewildered in the
multitude of matters brought te their
It was in this view that se much of
Democratic effort was bestowed upon
Garfield's personal record ; in the belief
that the people would endure least pa
tiently the idea of electing te the chief
magistracy a bad man. The startling
lessen of this election is that it was a
mistaken view. Fer that Garfield has
been proven te have done very evil and
vile tilings while a representative of the
people in Congress is a fact that has un
questionably reached home te the con
viction of many Republicans. Yet it
deprived him of very few votes. It has
net prevented the party from increasing
its majority. It has net only kept intact
the Republican vote, but has net prevent
ed it from receiving accessions from
these who voted four years age for Til
den. At Cincinnati the Democracy re
fused te reneminate Mr. Tilden
because of the accusation that his
personal conduct had net been irre
proachable in that election. They chose
instead a man they believed te be, and who
has since been proven te be, personally
irreproachable. Hew arc they new re
warded for their virtue ? and what rea
son have they te congratulate themselves
upon their sagacity ?
This lessen is a fearful thing. It
throws open the highest offices of the
country te men of any sort of character,
and guarantees power te any party,
no matter what its conduct,that controls
the country while its business is prosper
ous. The story it tells is that free license
is given te our rulers te deas they please,
se long as the people arc at the moment
prosperous. They will net leek ahead
te see that the causes of their prosperity
are deeply heated and that its continuance
isguarantetd. They will net demand,that
which their intelligence would tell them
is a necessity te the life of the republic,
that its rulers shall hi honest, capable
and true te democracy.
"We leek upon this Republican victory
as secured by the present condition of
business in the country, which is un
doubtedly geed. The people are content
with it,and accept the party that holds the
government regardless of its theft of it
four years age and regardless loe of
its candidate. There is no encour enceur
- agement in this view te the geed
citizen and the friend of Democracy.
There is plenty of it te the parti
san. It is the Republican partisan new
who laughs ; before many years it will be
his opponent. The wheel gees round?
and the time of discontent will seen
come, which will shake the rul
ing party off ; seen, we say, unless it
may uproot our democracy before its
held is shaken off ; and then it will
come later ; but the outs will have their
innings and the country will be the prey
of the spoiler. It is net a cheerful pros pres
pect ; the honest lever of the republic has,
in this election result,reason for the pro pre pro
One cause of regret our Republican
friends cannot possibly escape if they
are consistent; which, however, we
cannot say is markedly characteristic of
them ; and that is that there is a solid
North. As the solid Seuth was te them
a cause of such extreme annimadversien
during the campaign, de they net have
reason te feel a little ashamed of them
selves that they are open te the same
reproach which they visited se severely
upon the Democrats ?

fatigue of the eye when reading by the

want of light than the excess; for the
pupils are mere dilated in a room bril

muscles controlling the mechanical part of
the organ of vision. He suggests that,
as the electric light contains a large pro
portion of chemical rays, the remedy may
be found in the use of yellow-tinted
glebes for the lamps.

Then Hancock Would Hare Been Elected.
Whoever else failed yesterday the Lan
caster Democracy did net. Wherever
else blunders in the management
or failure of the rank and file
te de their duty ensued in defeat, it
was net se here. A better fight was never
made ; a mere brilliant victory never was
wen than that which the staunch Demo
cracy of this city snatched from the jaws
of defeat yesterday. The opposition
made every effort and resorted te
every means te win. They had secretly
had United States deputy marshals ap
pointed for the Seventh and Eighth wards
supposed te be the only Democratic
wards in the city although there was no
occasion whatever for their presence te
secure an orderly aud fair Congressional
election. But, as revealed during the day
and admitted by prominent leaders, the
idea waste scud a gang of Republican
roughs te these wards, kick up a disturb
ance and then afford the deputies a pre
text for closing the polls. They
were promptly notified that if they
made such occasion special police
men would he appointed te preserve
the pcace of the town, and that" if they at
tempted, as they threatened, te
"gut" the Eighth ward they would be
gutted before they get there. They
didn't start with their gang. And the
deputies turned out te be great farces and
were the butts of much ridicule.
In every ward in the city there was no
tably geed order all day long and with the
exception of a little altercation at the
Third ward poll, universal quiet pre
vailed. The most active exertions were
made by the poll committeemen of every
ward and the liveliest competition was
had in hurrying voters te the polls and di
recting them when there, resulting in an
immense poll and the cast of it very early,
but withal there was little bitterness in
In seme wards, most especially in the
Third and Fourth, the Republican election
officers were stubborn, grossly partisan aud
notoriously unfair. Under the direction of
that unscrupulous partisan J. W. Jehnsen
the Republican judge of the Fourth ward
and the inspector refused te allow men te
vete who mads the necessary oath te rcsi
dencc, tax, &c, and produced their a vou
cher. It was even refused te allow men te
swear te the payment of their taxes.
In the Third ward there are com
plaints of unfairness aud in the
Eighth the Republicans claim that the
vote of Hiram Snyder was unlawfully re
jected, though the Democrats allege that
his wife resides in the Fifth ward and that
he has lived there with her within sixty
days. On the whole, however, there was
less objecting than usual, fewer doubtful
votes offered, and the ward committees
had their work se effectually organized
that objections were disposed of in short
At the close of the polls immense
crowds began te assemble in Centre square
te hear the news from the newspaper offi
ces and there was little friction or alterca
tion between them. The Democrats get
the news from abroad tee early and te
severely te be much comforted by their
victory at home. The Republicans had
the edge worn off their rejoicings ever the
national victory by their local discomfiture ;
and between these considerations the en
thusiasm en the hand and the depression
en the ether were net se intense as te
lead te collisions or te produce nearly se
great excitement as has often been seen in
Lancaster en election night.
Elim G. Snyder, the assemblyman-elect,
awaited the result at the Intelligencer
office and received the news with compos
ure and the congratulations of his friends
with modesty. Every ward that came in
mere than satisfied the expectations of the
Democracy except the Seventh, in which
all day long a majority for Snyder of 100
was predicted, and ever the 71 which it
registered for him there was no little dis
satisfaction. The First ward surprised
everybody by giving Snyder a majority,
when 40 for Dcmuth was the lowest figure
set by cither side ; the Second exceeded
Democratic expectations ; the Third and
Fourth greatly disappointed Republican
hopes and were far below Democratic
fears. In the Fifth and Ninth it was gen
erally expected that Mr. Snyder's personal
popularity and energetic canvass would
cut into the opposition, but in neither
ward was anything like such results antic
ipated as ensued. When they were heard
from " that settled it."
The '01d Eighth" was the centre of
interest and curious wonder from both
parties all day long. Geed results were
expected from it by the Democrats be
cause of the large number of voters " en
age," of new men naturalized, and bv rea
son of the splendid organization and har
monious co-operation of the Democracy.
The Republican politicians of the ward
quarreled ever the division of the money,
and it was parted among them se that
neither faction was satisfied and the Re
publicans were feebly prepared te cepe
with the odds against them. The Demo
crats expected about 400 from the ward
and the Republicans feared for worse.
ft was one of the last wards te report, and
when it came down with 476 for Snyder the
Democratic majority ran right away up
into the hundreds. In the Sixth ward a
phenomenally large vete was polled with,
few objections and few votes offered that
were rejected, se thoroughly had the can-1
vassers done. their work. The increased
vote and tbe pertenal labors at tbe polls of
Postmaster Marshall, Chairman Eshle
man, Clerk of tbe Senate Cochran and
District Attorney. Expectant Davis, led te
fears that the Republicans would run. far
ahead. Their calculations were from SO 1
te CO majority. They carried it for Gar
Geld by a few majority and lest it for Dc
muth by a few mere.
Altogether the city Democrats made a
geed fight The city Republicans were
altogether unequal te the occasion and
need nethave been surprised te have re
ceived such messages as these :
Philadelphia, Nev. 2, 1880.
B. F. EthUman, Republican Chairman :
I trust the Lancaster city Republicans
will have enough regard for the fitness of
things net te show their faces te-night.
Philadelphia, Nev. 2, 18S0.
. Hay Brown, esq. :
What shall it profit a man if he helps te
carry a Republican Legislature and then
Grew is elected a United States senator?
Send back the $3,000 sent te Lancaster te
instruct Harry Demuth for me.
M. S. Qcat.
Notwithstanding their ingloreus failure,
the city Republicans had a walk
around and paraded the streets with
music ; the " business men," who
had hardly shown their faces at the
polls and the "young men" of
the club, who were net worth
a button in their wards, were very
loud-mouthed in celebration of a victory
abroad te which they had contributed
la the County.
Frem every part of this county we hear
of geed weather and a full vote, the result
of active exertions by both parties. The
Democratic calculations prier te the In
diana elections were upon a total Demo
cratic vete of 10,300, Republican, 18,500 ;
doubtful, 800. It was presumed that the
western elections resolved a larger portion
of the doubtful vote against us, but up te
within the past week it was expected that
the Republicans would net get their vote
out mere fully than the above. It leeks new
as though the total vote would reach 30,000,
and that of this the Democracy have poll
ed about 10,600, the Republicans about
19,300, and scattering 220. The Republi
can majority will be about 8,750. The
increase in the Democratic vote is heavy,
and as usual will be found, we believe, te
be above the general average increase of
It would have been greater but for the
malignant partisanship of seme of the Re
publican election officers. Where they had
power they exercised it shamefully te the
exclusien of Democratic voters who were
qualified and te the admission of illegal
Republican votes. In Manheim township
one Jehn N.Eby.a Republican tax-collector,
took tax and gave receipts in February 1879,
after he settled with the commissioners.
Democrats who had paid him state or
county tax within two years were refused
their votes, though they produced their re
ceipts ; Eby swore that the taxes were paid
and Judge Livingston decided that they
had a right te vote. The matter will net
be allowed te step with this outrageous
treatment of qualified voters, some of
whom have voted for ever thirty years in

The District Attorney Contest.
In this city, as appears from the table of
returns, Davis was cut all te pieces, being
Deaten ever 100 m Ins own ward where he
attended the polls in person all day. In
such Republican strongheldsas the Fourth
and Fifth wards he was also frightfully
cut and he gees out of the city in a minor
ity of nearly 1000. Frem the rural dis
tricts the returns are as yet incomplete
and seem te be difficult te obtain en
this office. In Conestesra we learn
that Davis runs 100 behind his
ticket ; about 100 in Earl ; 100 in Provi
dence and mere in Drumore. In ether Re
publican districts he was mere or less cut,
but the event of the presidential
election and the active bulldozing
of nearly all the office hunters
kept the Republicans from striking
him as fully as was anticipated. The
local politicians Haunted badges inscribed
"Ask me for the iiegl-lau Republican
ticket," and men were se severely spotted
that they feared te take them from an j j
bedyelse. In the aggregate Davis will
run about 4,000 behind his ticket and is
net likely te beat McMulIcn ever 3,000 at
Croefcedues.4 at the Prison.
A case of crookedness in the discharge
of a prisoner from the county prison has
come te light. On the 22d of January 1874
Abraham Buzzard was convicted of larceny
and of receiving stolen goods, and sen
tenced the same day te an imprisonment of
two years and nine months. He escaped
from prison en the 5th of August follow
ing, after having served only six months
and thirteen days of his sentence. He
was recaptured in 1878, and was indicted
for jail breaking. On the 23d of Angust
1878, he pleaded guilty te the in
dictment, and the court sentenced
him te two years imprisonment
for jail breaking "te commence at
the expiration of the sentence he is new
serving out for larceny and receiving stolen
goods." According te this his original
term would have expired a sheit tirae age
and he would be beginning his second term
net te exeire until cKmr. t;m. .,; iaae
But, by somebody's mistake or connivance
Buzzard was discharged from prison at
the expiration of his sentence for jail
breaking, and no account was taken
of his unexpired sentence for lar
ceny. The prison authorities had special
notice from Judges Patterson and Living
ston that the sentence for jail breaking
was te commence at the expiration of the
sentence for larceny, and this notice was
set forth en the prison books by Charles
D. Tripple, who was prison clerk up te the
1st of April last, and who had personally
consulted the judges regarding the matter
and had called his successor's attention te
