WE are inform-i that Gc-orgo Wil
liam Curtis was "vociferously cheered"
every time he made his ap|>earance in
the New York Republican Htatc Con
vention, and that when his name was
called a- a delegate there was "enthu
siastic applnusc." This sounds very
well, but the result of the ballot for
j Governor shows that "vociferous
j <dicen" and "enthusiatic applause"
embraced alwut everything in the
! way of allegiance to the "man Mil
! liner" that the convention had to of
j fer. When it came to voting the del
egates promptly stopped their fooling
'And followed the plumed hero of Cau
IT is said the implacable enemies of
Gen. Fit* John l'orter are persistent
lin preparing the bark-bone of Mr.
j Hayes to veto any hill that may lie
j passed by Congress to do justice to
: this gallant nnd much wronged sol-
I dier.
What County Offleors aro to bo
A question lias been riiiacil in rclu
tion to the county officers to be elect
ed in Centre county thin fall. The
cull of the chnirnmu of the Democrat
ic County Committee afiecifiea hut one
office to be filled—that of Jury Com
missioner—hut it has been asserted
that a Csninty Surveyor and a Coroner
should also he elected to fill vacancies
that now exist in those offices. In re
gard to th! office of Surveyor there is
no vacancy. The law providing for
the election of county surveyors pro
vides that a county surveyor shall he
elected for a term of three years.
The same law provides further that
"In case of a vacauey occasioned by
death, resignation, removal or other
wise, it shall he the duty of the Court i
of (Quarter Sessions of the proper J
county to appoint a eom|stcnt person, i
ln ing a practical surveyor, to fill such .
vacauey until the time prescrilied by !
this act for the election of said offi
cers." The act of Assembly provid- j
ing for the election of county survey
ors was passed 9th of April, 1850. 1
County Surveyors were first elected in '
this State on the second Tuesday of
October, 1850, for the term of three j
years, and uuder the provisions of the
act of that year they were to lie elect
ed every third year thereafter. That
makes I*Bo the year for the election
of a county surveyor. The day of'
election under the new constitution is
now in November.
William P. Mitchell was elected in
1871, resigned iu 1875, when Joseph
Devling, Kiq., was. appointed by the
proper court to (ill the vacancy.
Iu 1*77 Mr. Ellis Lytic was voted
for, hut it was without proclama
tion by the sheriff, and the election
was held to Ik? void. The Court de
sired to ap|siiut Mr. Lytic, who had
received a large vote, hut when that
gentleman learned that lie would Ik
obliged under the law to keep his
i office in llellefonte he declined to re
ceive the appointment. Mr. Devling
was again appointed, ami by the law
, his term coutinucs until the first day
of Januarv, 1881.
As to the office of coroner we know
that I >r. Constance Cambridge was
j elected in 1878; whether Dr. Cam
bridge ever qualified and lifted his
commission the writer doe* not know.
If there is n vacancy it is the business
of the Governor to fill such vacancy
I _
bv appointment till the next general
election. If it is the duty of the
coming county convention to nominate
it coroner they can do so. There is
no rule or law that require* the chair
man to *|>ecify in the call why the
convention is called. It has Iwcn ens- i
tomary for the chairman's proclama
tion to contain a summary of what
the convention is to do. The rail of
the present chairman is made in strict
accord with this usage and custom.
Ok r of the licautics of civil service
( reform as prartieed by the present ad
mi uist rat ion is illustrated by a little
: thing that has just seen the light of
•lay. It appears that there is a color
ed elerk iu the office of the Third Au
ditor of the Treasury, Cbarlea Is-mos
i by name, who draws the handsome
salary of $ 1;000 per annum. It has
long Ik-cii a wonder to the other clerks
and attache* of the same office wlint
i his dutie* were, us he never performed
I "
any in their department. It has just
transpired that Lcmo* is a tonsorial
artist, and that his clerical duties con
sist in keeping the hair of the fraud
ulent President from standiug on end ;
curling the ambrosial locks of the
poetic Ilodgcrs, his private secretary,
and in anxiously awaiting the ap|cnr
anceof Webb Hayes' mustache. Thus
we glide.
THE Sherman boom thus far has
not been a success. His sjieeche* in
Mnine were considered damaging—his
tour in Ohio abandoned for the same
reason, and the efTeetual failure of
Fenton and other friends to capture
the New York Republicans from Couk
ling, places this bold manager of the
Hayes Presidential fraud largely at a
Tin: administration are no doubt
much gratified with the nomination of
the man they ejected from the office of
Burveyor of Customs for incompeten
cy, as the Republican candidate for
Governor of New York. Conkling's
I*mm now overshadows the Hhorman
boom, and the wily Secretary is cor
respondingly happy.

The Government Finance*.
The correspondent of the New York
Journal of (hmmerce has been favored by
the Treasury officials with a statement
of Iho receipts and expenditures of the
Soverninent lor the fiscal year ending
une 30, 1879. As this is the statement
which will be embodied in the next an
nual report of Secretary Khcttnan it is
replete with interest. Summarized and
compared with the three preceding fis
cal years the statement is as follows :

1*77 urifti.:.*!.zxK.ftan.iMs ut
is:- gni.wHitts.au
is;i ri.s/T.lsl.+B iyi.u4T,sr;i^.i
It is thus seen that the receipts for
1879 show an increase over those lor the
preceding year of $16,063,305.76. At
the same time the receipts for 1879
were not so large by some $13,000,000 as
those for 1876. The lsst fiscal year
shows an increase over I*7B in the cus
toms revenue of $7,079,367.50. The
profits on account of coinage amount
for the year to over $1,500,000. Turn
ing to the other side of the account it
appears that, while the receipts show
an increase of some $16,000,000, there
was an advanco in expenditures ol
over $30,000,000. The course of the
Treasury since 1*76 is thus indicated :
"At the end of the fiscal year 1*76 the
receipts exceeded the expenditures by
$29,022,211.83; in 1877 bv $30,340,577.
69; in I*7B bv $20,799,551.90; in 1879.
by only $6,879,300.93." The detailed
statement of receipts and expenditures
lor 1879 is as follows :

After deducting from the increase in
expenses for 1*79 the $5,500,000 paid out
on account of the fisheries award, SB,- i
000,01*1 on account of arrears of (ten
sions and $3,000,000 for interest on oc
count of resumption and the refunding
operations, there remains an increase
of over $13.000,0U0 to be accounted for.
To make matters worse, when the
record of the current fiscal year shall
have heen made up it will show still
greater extravagance. The Journal tJ :
(iwnwirrtt corres;on<lent recalls the late
official statement from the Treasury
Department announcing a decrease in
the cost of collecting the customs reve
nue at several of the larger ports for
1879 as compared with the cost tor I*7*.
The showing was, of course, favorable
to John Sherman's administration.
Hut it apr-ear* that the total cost ot col
looting the customs revenue for 1*79
was $19,025,452.84, a* against $17,412.-
717.33 for I*7B. It is thus seen that
outside of the two or three large ;>orta,
the cost of collection was increased in
1*79 about $2,000,000. Tins mean* that
extra jiatronsge having the money
value named was distributes! by Candi
date Sherman's agents at the various
minor Custom Houses of the country
during the last fiscal year, although for
that |eriod the cost of collection, hal
ing reference to the universal decline 1
in price* and the wage* of labor,
should have heen loosened. The per
sistent tendency of the government
toward increased expenditure*, while
the cost of living and individual ex
pense# have been decreasing, affords
food for a ileal of reflection on the part
of the people. Thn lesson to Ik- en
forced is that a greater degree of vigi
lance in lookiog after the acta of public
officials of every class must come about
if government ol the people and for
the |>eople is to endure.
The CDII Right* of Indian*.
Kx Governor Horotio Seymour and
ex llepresentative W. J. Bacon, of Ctica.
N. Y.. have signed the annexed appeal
for the civil right* of Indian*:
"Thequestion of the right of Indian*
to claim the protection of the law,
which ha* attracted the attention of
the public since the hata-as corpus for
the re!oa*e of Standing Hear, the I'on
ca chief, is one which we deem of vast
imjHirtance. All those who sympathize
with the Indian* and desire that they
should have thn same right* before
the court* that we accord to all other
human l>eing* now have an opjKirtuni
ty to give practical aid to secure that
otject. The |>ople of the North re
proach the iK-ople ot the South for the
wrong* of slavery, yet there never was
a time when they were not allowed to
have their cases tried before the courts.
Surety we should take care that the
American people do not lay themselve*
open to the charge that in this respect
they uphold a denial of that justice
which wa* never withheld from the
slaves in the South, when they were
subject to the utmost rigor of the law*
which made them the property of oth
er*. We therefore appeal to the be
nevolent everywhere to send in contri
butions for that nurjKKie. F.minent
counsel have offered their service# free
of charge, and the money asked for is
to pay witne** fees and court ex
penses." •
