—The action of Bcllefontc's burgess in
closing the hotel and saloon bars during
and after the parade on Wodnesday even
ing was either a pitiable exhibition of
partisanship or else the burgees has little
comprehension of bis municipal duties.
As the head of tho commonalty of Belle
fonte he repre-ent* all her citizens and not
tho members of the political party with
which he acts. The lives and property of
Democrats arc as dear to thorn as they can
be to their Republican fellow citizens, and
are certainly entitled to equal protection
from the authorities. On Tuesday even
ing, while thousands of enthusiastic Demo
crats were upon tho streets, tho burgess
did not deem it necessary to institute pre
cautionary measures to prevent disturb
ances of the peace, and thanks to the order
loving disposition of those who topk part
in the great Hancock demonstration, such
measures wera not needed, but on Wednes
day evening when his own party friends
were expected In force tho bead of our
municipal government threw himself into
the breach and issued his ukase closing the
bars with all t\je pomp and circumstance
which accompanies the edicts of the Lord
Mayor of London. As a result the bars
were closed and bis Republican friends
were kept comparatively sober. We in
dulge in these few remarks merely for tho
purpose of (tailing the burgese' attention to
the fact that he is not the officer of a party
but of the whole people.

THE POET BURRS. —A lecture entitled
"The Poet Burns; the lesson of Ills Life
and the Influence of Uls Song," will be |
delivered in Ilumea' Hall this evening at 8 j
o'clock. The lecturer is the Rev. Dr. John
Moffat, the gentleman who spoke so elo
quently on the subject ol temperance in the j
Court House on Sunday evening. Dr. j
Moffat is a native of the country in which
the poet was born and in which be sang '
hi* sweet songs, and is therefore well fitted
to understand the poet and the divine sen
timents that fnspirod bis poems. The lec
turo is highly spoken of by many who have j
heard it, among whom may be mentioned |
the Rev. Joel Swartz, of the Lutheran !
church, llarrisburg; Rev. K. R. Reeber, |
of tho Presbyterian church, Danville, and
Rev. J. 11. Brooks, of the Presbyterian j
church, Susquehanna. An admission foe j
of twenty-five cents will be charged.
—lt was our intention not to say any
thing about the personal rencounters, grow
ing out of an excited state of political feel
ing, which occurred In our town last week.
We should have continued In that deter
mination but for the unffiir and unjust
version of the collision in front of
the Brockerhoff House, which the Belle
fonlo Republican laid before its readers,
evidently for the purpose of forestall
ing public opinion and making a little
political capital for the Republican party
in this community. We know nothing
about the story In regard to Mr. Smith,
and unleas there was good foundation for
it are very sorry that a charge so deroga
tory to him should have been circulated by
any one. It may be true that "b* imme
diately set out to hunt the originator of the
charge and vindicate himself," but it I*
certainly not true that either his manner
or bis language when be met the "Demo
crats" indicated that he was in their pres
ence for "a peaceable settlement," as the
Republican alleges. He was laboring under
great excitement, used foul language and
was the first to make an assault, and ii he
got nioro than be bargained for be has
only bimaelf to blame for the outcome
While upon this matter, it may be proper
to say that the Republican waa not so
anxious to write up the particulars of the
affair opposite the Bush Houae, on Satur
day, perhaps because the treacherous assault
behind made by a large man upon a
small one afforded no material that would
cut to political advantage. Of this ren
counter neither the Re/mblican or Its daily
echo, the Morning Mew*, has had a word
to say. We deprecate scenes of personal
violence as much as any one. They only
engender bad blood between persons who
should be at peace with each other, and we
sincerely trust that throughout the remain
der of the present political contest there
may be entire immunity from them In our
town and neigh borboed.

DEATH or Ma. JOHN ECEEXROTH.—
The subject of the above title expired at
his home In Pleasant Gap on Saturday
morning, August 21. His death was a sad
event both to hi* immediate family and to
his Urge circle of friends. Hi* widow is
an aged and very estimable lady and the
removal of her best earthly friend in her
declining years is a severe affliction. Sev
eral children also live to mourn his loss,
among whom are Charles, Jeremiah and
Henry, all good cltlxens and the latter a
justice of the peace. As acitisen and a* a
member of the Lutheran church—of wbieh
he was a devoted adherent—his death
creates a vacancy which cannot be filled.
His age was 66 years. The funeral took
place on the following Monday afternoon
at 2 o'clock.
—Company B, Bellefonte Fencibles, met

ANO WM. I'. KUBKY.
If there existed tho slightest doubt a* to
tho earnestness and -enthusiasm of Centre
county Democrat* in than campaign, it wan
effectually dissipated by the two grand
meeting* of la*t week. The demonstration
on Tuesday evening, Augut 24, wit ac
knowledged by all to have been one of the
gran dent political display* eve* witne**ed
in thi* icction of the Htate. It wai not
neeewary for DemocraU to oar into the
realm* of fancy in ipeaking of their meet
ing. Tho cold, hard, uncomproniiiing
fact* were enough to fully juntify their
most extravagant ebullition* of praine in
alluding to It. To render that demopstra
tion the magnificent success it wai, took
much time and labor. Therein lie* the
difference between it and the meeting in
the Court lloutc on the Saturday evening
following. Without any effort and with
no intention of making it more than a
town meeting, the simple announcement
that ex-Gov. C'urtin would reply on that
evening to District Attorney Woodford'*
Bcllefonte speeches had the effect of bring
ing to the Court liou*e an immcnic crowd,
from all part* of the county that filled it*
vaat (pace* to suffocation In fifteen minute*
after the door* opened. Kven standing
room wa* out of tho question ar.d hue
dred* were turned away unable to even
get near the door*. The aisles, window*
and auditorum were one vast *ea of teething
humanity. The Hancock Legion in their
hand*ome uniform and with brilliant
torche* made a *hort street parade and
then repaired to the Court room, when the
meeting wa* called to order by Chairman
Spangler, who named Adam Hoy, E.q., a*
chairman. Mr. Hoy upon assuming hi*
dutie* made a short, ringing speech
which wa* loudly applauded. He made
*omc telling point* on the local Ilepub
liran leader* and ridiculed their ottcnU
tiou* and phari*aical claim of |>olitical
morality. During hi* remark* Gov. Cur
tin entered the room when tho scene* of
the previou* Tuesday evening were repeat,
ed with even greater vehemence than before.
Cheer upon cheer rent the air, the va*t
crowd ri*ing to their feet and giving way
to the wilde*t enthu*ia*rn. There would
be a lull and then the cheers would break
forth again and again until from sheer
exhaustion they were compelled Jto silence.
Mr. Hoy concluded his spech and intro
duced T. C. Hippie, Esq., of the Clinton
county bar, who made a witty and elo
quent speech whicb held ttie close attention
of the audience for three-quarters of an
hour. He was frequently interrupted by
applause and hi* remark* were received
with the liveliest evidence* of satisfaction.
A* he took bis seat the imposing form and
noble head of Gov. Curlin were visible
just in front of the clerk * de#k. Thi*
wa* the signal for a repetition of the wild
enthusiasm which had greeted him on bi*
entrance. The Governor wa* in splendid
fighting trim and he proceeded to make
what is universally pronounced one of the
greatest speeches he ha* ever delivered.
Old men who recollect him in the aenilh of
hi* power* say he ha* made no *ucb effort
for twenty year*. He took up Governor
Woodford'* bloody ahirt harrangue and
dissected it piecemeal. When he had most
effectually disposed of the question of a
•olid South, speaking of the marvelous
growth and exceptional prosperity which
had come to that section a* evidenced by
lately taken census, he addressed him
self to that particular portion of Wood
ford's speech relating to the attitude of the
Democratic party to the soldiers of the
Union. This was the culminating point of
his speech. \\ hen he spoke of the two
hundred and seventy-five thousand men
into whoae bands he himself had placed
the national color*, as they went forth to
win imperishable renown upon historic
battle-fields, there occurred such a scene
as was never before witnessed in that
Court room. It simply beggared descrip
tion. He next proceeded to an elaborate
discussion of the tariff question, clearly
demonstrating the position of Gen. Oar
field, and fully and explicitly explaining
the ftill scopo and meaning of the whole
question. He proved from Garfield's
speeches and votes in Congress that he
wa* not in sympathy with the friends of
American protection, and said when he
wanted to find a champion of Pennsyl
vania's Industrie* he would not look for
him under the mantle of Joshua R. Did
ding*. This portion of his remark* excited
unusual interest from the fact that Gov.
Curtin is himself largely interested In
Centre county's Important iron industrial
The Governor spoke for about an hour
and a half with all the fire and vigor
of his earlier deys, and hi* speech will
never be forgotten by those who were for
tunate enough to hear it W. P. Purey,
Esq., of the Attoona Am, thon made a
few remarks and this splendid meeting wa*
ended. It was one of the finest and most
enthusiastic ever held in this county.
