GARFIELD, the corrupt Credit Mo bilierite and I)e Golyer jobber; Ar i thur, the disgraced collector of cus itoms, who was kicked out of office by Hayes and Sherman because he would 'not honestly perform his official du ties! Honest Republicans, how do you like the combination? I IT is scarcely to be conceived that Republicans would he willing to ad vertise the shame of their candidate for I esident of the United States, •ml yet badges bearing the disgrace, fill figures "1129" were to be seen in their procession on last Friday kight. 'i TIIE wsr for the Union was success fully closed more than fifteen years ago. All classes of our people must share llike in the blessings of the Union, ind re equally concerned in its perpe uily and in the proper administration I public affairs.— Hancock'* Letter qf AT a meeting of the Republican •tion&l Committee in .New York the Jter day, it was decided that Mar pi Jewell shall make an effort to pry Florida, North Carolina and ninia for the I>e Golyer candidate If President. Representatives of pee States were present soliciting ■Bpaign funds. It will require a kge supply of this argument to pop iu any considerable number of ■ "Rebel Brigadiers." The Mar pi's experience in this direction in ■ attempted purchase of Alabama p not very encouraging, but having a •plus of funds on hand he may as ftl disburse it in the Houth as [WHEN our Parisian friend, dame* illi ken, /></., introduced "Judge Jur al from North Carolina" at the late ■publican meeting iu the Court lose, he was so discourteous as to Eft the fact that it wasn't "Judge ■don" but "Judge I. Parker Jor b," as the entry of the distinguished ptleman's name upon the Rush ■use register shows. It is to be re lied that when so great a man as pdgel. Parker Jordon, N.C.," comes ■own and emblazons bis name and Ilk upon the reception book of one ■or large hotels that so punctilious ■gentleman as Mr. Milliken should | to do him full honor. "RQUAL ANI> EXACT JUSTICE TO ALL MEN, OF WHATEVER STATK OH PERSUASION, KKLIOIOUH OK POLITICAL.J.-fffttui, Now You see Them—and Now You don't see Them. Since the amalgamated opponents of Democracy first unfurled their sec tional banner in the city of Philadel phia in 18~>li, they have been distin guished for their facility to udopt any campaign cry that may seem to them, for the time being, adapted to the public ear, but never have they been so rapidly driven from one hobby to another as in the present year. Set ting out with their old crusade whoop against the " solid South," they soon found that the masses of the Northern |eople concurred with Geu. Hancock in the belief that the war was uctually over, and that their last political vic tory under the banner of the bloody shirt had been achieved. The inge nuity of their party leaders, being taxed for a new bug-a-boo, start the idea that the election of Hancock will insure the ruin of the Federal Union under a burden of " Rebel claims." This is speedily squelched bv the fact that payment of all such debts is abso lutely prohibited by the Constitution, and by Gen. Hancock's remark that it is not in good taste for (Joveruments to pay the expense of attempts to destroy them. The election in Maine banish ed from the fertile brains of radical demagogues all hope of success under the auspices of sectionalism, and with admirable disregard for self stultifica tion, they vault themselves into the saddle and parade themselves as the special guardians of the business in terests of the country, hoping that the people have already forgotten that exclusive Republican rule brought this country to the verge of business ruin in 1873, from which it only com menced to recover after a Democratic House of Representatives gave direc tion to new measures of financial poli cy. For abundant crops at home and a scarcity abroad making a foreign demand, as well as for the blessings of Democratic legislation, the Radical leaders would have the American people vote them thanks, and re ward them by a new lease of power. In the manufacturing districts they avow themselves protectionists, not withstanding the notoriously free trade record made by their nominee for Pres ident. In Pennsylvania they are for a protective tariff and in the West for free trade. The fact is they will re sort to anything to deceive the voters and steal a vote. As a last resort of desperate men, dreading the loss of power, comes INTIMIDATION! Workingineu shall be slaves and forc ed to vote as their masters dictate! Is this the boasted liberty that is sup posed to come to every American citi zen as a birth right ? or is it not rath er more akin to Russian serfdom ? Covered all over with fraud, corrup tion, and treason to the Constitution of the country, they most loudly sound the trumpet proclaiming their own honesty, purity and patriotism. They have been twenty years in power. them lie judged by the record they have made. Understanding their tergiversations, we trust the intelligent voters will not permit themselves to be again deceived and led blindfold to the slaughter of American liberty. Keep the facts fairly before you, aud remember that the party led by Gar field is the party that favors a revo lution in our form of government, the destruction of the States and the cen tralization of power at Washington in violation of all the warnings of the patriotic and revered fathers of our country from whom we have inherited our proud and glorious Republic. I>et the Constitution and the rights of the States be preserved and maintained in all their integrity, and the way to do this is by voting for the true and tried patriot and statesman, Winfield Scott Hancock. THE bayonet is not a fit instrument for collecting the votes of freemen. It is only by a full vote, free ballot, and fair count that the people can rule in fact as required by the theory of our government. Take this foundation away and the whole structure falls.— Hancock'* Letter qf Acceptance, BELLEFONTE, PA., THURSDAY, OCTOBER 21, 1880. Beecher and Garflold-Both Free Traders. Beecher—Henry Ward of unsavory fame—made a free trade speech at a Garfield meeting, in Brooklyn, the other evening, that will scarcely be reported in the newspapers or quoted by the spouters of the Republican party in Pennsylvania. Beecher pro claimed himself an out uud out free trader and is reported in the New York Herald as saying, " I believe " that the philosophy of the future is " free trade, and that all nations to " be just to themselves must udopt it "as soon as they can. The time is " coming when nations will not know " a custom house ; when there will be " free trade among the human race " all over the earth." Fearing, how ever, that this was somewhat too bold to suit the present purposes of his party, the oily tongucd preacher of party politics and diluted religion un dertook to hedge upon his doctrine by saying that "time must give it ripe " ness and it would be unwise to make " a sudden change." This reads as though Garfield him self might have uttered it. Hear what Garfield said in reply to Judge Kellcy on the same subject: "As an ab " struct theory of [silitical economy " free trade has many advocates and " much can be said in its favor; nor " will it be denied that the scholur-hip "of modern times is largely on that " side; that a large mnjority of the "great thinkers of the present day " are leading in the direction of what "is called free trade." And, again : " I am trying to state as fairly as I " can the present condition of the " question ; aud in doing so I affirm " that the tendency of modern thought " is toward free trade." Here is a candidate whose record is undcuiahly that of a free trader— made so by his votes in Congress je wel 1 a- by his public utterances; he has orators on the stump supjK)rling his election who boldly avow them selves free traders; he has leading Republican newspapers like the New York Time*, the New York Evening l'o*l, the Cincinnati Commercial and the Chicago Tribune that ask the peo ple to give him their votes and at the same time are open and undisguised in their advocacy of free trade. Now, who is deceived ? and does uot the tariff clamor of the Republicans in Pennsylvania bear the impress of a cunningly devised scheme of decep tion and hypocrisy ? Reader, exam ine these facts for yourself, think over them, and then draw your own con clusions. A SEDULOUS and scrupulous care of the public credit, together with a wise and economical management of our governmental expenditures, should be maintained in order that labor may be lightly burdened, and that all persons may be protected in their rights to the fruita of their own industries.—Han cock'* letter qf Acceptance. Not Loet t The Democracy of Indiana had to encounter the resources of the Repub lican party of the United States, back ed by innumerable marshals and by hordes of supervisors of the National Government to protect the thousands of imported negro voters nnd repeaters in getting in their villainous work. Against this tremendous force of fraud they made a gallant fight, but were unable to stem the torrent. In the November election it will be different. The Democracy have a decided ma jority, and in the encounter with the Republican party of the Ktate in No vember, stripped of the outside pres sure which must necessarily be employ ed elsewhere, we entertain no doubt that the electoral vote of Indiana will be cast for Gen. Hancock. The re verse in the preliminary struggle is only temporary. The great battle is yet to come off. Hancock is yet to be voted for. The Democracy are not discouraged, and will work with a will and determination that cannot be dis counted. In November the Republi cans have many Htales that will re quire all their money and appliances of fraud. They cannot concentrate them upon Indiuna, as in the late election, and wc nmy expect a fair election ami nil honest result. Indiana may be safely trusted to the noble men who led the Democratic van in the late election to overcome the Republican minority of the State, and detect uml punish any remains of fraud still lin gering in the rear. No form of government, however carefully devised, no principles bow ever sound, will protect ihe rights of tlie people, unless the administration is faithful anil efficient.— Hancock'* latter of Acceptance. Harmony in Now York. The gratifying intelligence of the complete and cordial union of the Tammany and Irving Hall Democracy of the city of New York, cannot fail to inspire Democrats everywhere, for it means the casting of the electoral vote of the Empire Stale for Hancock by an unprecedented majority. Win. It. Grace lias been agreed upon for Mayor and the whole city ticket is endorsed by all the factions that have hitherto made war upon <-acli other- The only question that ever existed as to the certainty of New York voting for the Democratic National ticket was based upon the assumption that John Kelly would wage a hitter and unre lenting warfare UJHIU the candidates of the Tilden wing of the party, and thus create a diversion that would re act upon the National ticket. Mr. Kelly has effectually dissipated all such doubts by promptly and earnest ly joiuing hands with his rivals and pledging his best support to the sue jcew of the entire ticket, both city, State and National. This action of Tntnmany and Irving Hall is a severe, blow to the Republicans who had counted upon Democratic blunders to give them the State. Democrats, New York i* now assured, New Jersey is certain ami < onnecticut is safe! Re-form the line* ami give a lasting quietus to Republican debauchery. With earnest, jn-rsistent and enthusi astic effort Pennsylvania can IK; torn from her Republican moorings and added to the grand column of .States that will make Winfield Scott Han cock President of the American Union. There is no cause for depression over the result in Indiana. The money of Republican office-holders temporarily bought the State. There is nothing surer than that Indiana will vote as the majority of her eitizens desire— for Hancock nnd English. Jewell ami the third term syndicate have now twenty-two States to look to. nnd no such effort as was made in Indiann can be rejwatcd again. Harmony in New York means victory in New Jersey, Connecticut and Indiana with Penn sylvania, California, Oregon nnd Nev ada trembling in the balance. I*et there he no wavering, but constant aggression. Democrats, to your tents! LAST week Gov. Curtio made a fine campaign in Clearfield county, speaking to immense audiences of the citizens of that county at Glen Hope, New Washington and Houtzdale. At each of those points he was received with great enthusiasm and left strong and favorable impressions on the people with whom he came in contact |>craonally as well as by his able, argumentative and patriotic appeals to them from the rostrum. This week he has already spoken at mass meet ings held at Howard and Port Matil da, and yesterday he attended the great mass meeting at Clearfield. He is doing splendid work for the party. Now, let every Democrat rally to his support, and send him to Congress by an immense majority. To the Republicans the loss of In diana, last week) would have been ab. solutely fatal. To the Democrats it is not ao. Hancock and English can and will be elected even should they fail to receive the electoral vote of Indiana in November, JEWELL, the campaign idiot at the head of the Republican National Com | mittce, congratulates Garfield that the result of the Ohio eleetiou was a refu | tation of Democratic calumnies upon 1 1lie De Golyer candidate for Presi dent. 'I he meagre majority in com parison with former results in that State, does not indicate a very heal thy refutation. But what "democra tic calumnies" does Jewell refer to? Certainly not a single one of thechar j gi-s urged against Gen. Garfield's rep : u tat ion eau be traced to Democratic ! origin. While the democrats cannot ! close their eyes to the fact that Marat Halstead uttered the truth in his pa |s-r when he said that the Republican I candidate had "no record to run on," | that he is unfit to be trusted with the ! Presidential office, still tliey are not i responsible for any of the grave char ges which prove his unfitness. It was the Poland committee, composed of I his own party friends, who found him guilty of having taken the 8329 in credit mobilier dividends after his oath to the contrary. It was this sume committee who then convicted him of perjury and so reported him to the House, where the record now stands . ineffaceable to his shame. It was his own Republican constituents, in con nection with the Republican newspa pers, who charged the De Golyer bribe upon liiiu ami demanded his expulsion ! from Congress. It was his own parti ' san blindness that induced him to join the thieves in Louisiana to steal the I Presidency by fraud and perjury, and it was his partisan obliviousness to de cent propriety that allowed him to serve on the electoral commission to cover up the fraud. All these reflec tions upon the moral integrity of Mr. Garfield are drawn from the positive record he and his political friends have made, and arc not "Itcmocratic calumnies." IT is A vital principle in our system that neither fraud nor force must be allowed to subvert the rights of the people. When fraud, violence and incoui|>etence controls, the noblest con stitution and the wi-ent laws are use j less.— Hancock'* Letter of Acceptance. IT is announced that Col. Henry McCormick, of Harrishurg, who ranks j among the largest and most successful | of the iron manufacturers of Pennsyl vania, will not permit his employes to '■ be bulldozed into voting against their political belief. He employs in his furnaces and mills over one thousand ! men, and has posted up notices in all his establishments giving timely warn ing to all IMISSCS ami others in authori ty, " not fo use their influence upon employes either way in the matter of politics, on penalty of dircbarge." Col. McCormick is said to lie a Democrat who docs not mix business and poli tics, aud does not interfere with the right of those who are in bis employ to vote as they please. His noble example of respect for the rights aud dignity of the working man is worthy of all honor. How many other em ployers in Pennsylvania will follow the action of Col. McCormick ? Are there any in Centre county? If there are any, let us bear from them. I.BT us encourage the harmony and generous rivalry among our own indus tries, which will revive our languishing merchant marine, extend our commerce with foreign nations, assist our mer chants, manufacturers and producers to develop our vast resources and increase the prosperity and happiness of our people.— Hancock'* letter qf Acceptance. DEMOCRATIC laboring men of Cen tre county, do not permit yourselves to be coerced by your employers into voting against your honest political convictions. You are free men, and should dare to assert your right to cast your ballots for the party to which you belong regardless of threats or bulldozing. DEMOCRATS, don't trade or scratch any portion of your ticket. Every man upon it ia worthy of and entiUed to your earnest aud hearty support. Especially beware of the insidious offers that Republicans are making to trade. TERMS: #1.50 |M*r Annum, In Advance. We are in a state of profound peace; henceforth let it he our purpose to cultivate sentiments of friendship and not of animosity among our fellow citizen t.'—Hancock's LtUrr of Aectptanee. ALREADY have the gallant Democ racy of Indiana reformed their lines, and are prepared with new life and energy to grapple with their radical adversaries for supremacy at the bal lot lox on the 2d day of November. Impelled by a strong belief that it is in their power to reverse the verdict of < Jctober, they are fully aroused and will make u vigorous effort to carry the Slate for Hancock and English. In this contest they will be free to a great extent from the baleful influ ences of the vast corruption fund poured into their State by the des perate and unscrupulous managers of the Republican party for the purpose of debauching their voters. They will not be troubled with the presence of the hundreds of roughs, rounders and repeaters taken there from Eastern cities to perpetrate their rascalities on election day under the guidance and direction of Federal deputy marshals. They know that the Democratic party comprises a fair majority of the legal voters of the State. They also know that Hancock is stronger than the party by thousands of votes and feel that the result in November will dem onstrate that fact. With this hopeful prospect, therefore, they will redouble their efforts and show to the country that the late triumph obtained over them through means of corruption, and debauchery of the ballot that should bring a blush of shame to every Republican face, cannot be re pealed a second time. Indiana is hon estly for Hancock and #j|| vote for him. ADDITIONAL LOCALS. —Cheap and beautiful overcoat# can be i purchased at the Philadelphia Branch. Fine clothing made to order at the old prices.

But before many years shall pass away the yawning cavity will be filled, and only a level stretch of land will remain. —The regular meeting of the Hancock and Kngllsh Club, of Bellefonte, on last Saturday evening, was largely attended and was addressed by Mr. C. C. Xrigler, ol Rebersburg, Gon. Win, If Blair and Gov. Curtin. It was an earnest and spirited meeting, the timely remarks of the speak ers arousing much enthusiasm. —The Republican parade of last Friday ' night was a successful demonstration, hut was made so by the delegation from Clin ton county. Without the strangers it would have been a failure in point of numbers. Altogether there were between 'OO and 1000 torches in the procession and they made a very handsome display. \ The speaking at the Court House did not amount to much. The hour was late, and as a prominent Republican of Beilefonte remarked, the speaker was only about a 23d rate North Carolina lawyer, though be does sport the title of Judge. HANCOCK MBBTINU AT NITTAXT.—A goodly number of Democrats and a few Republicans assembled in the Franklin school house in Walker township, on Wed nesday evening, the 13th inst., to hear the issues of the campaign as viewed from a Democratic standpoint On* motion of CapL J. H. Tolbert, Mr. Sol omen Peck was called to the chair and Messrs. Joseph McCaleb, 11. 8. Wins leman, George Koas man and Robert Hurd elected vice presi dents, and L. A. Sehaeffer secretary. The first speaker, Mr. 0. M. Bower, being in troduced proceeded at onoe to discuss tome of the principle* involved in the prevent, contest and to draw quite a naat compari son between the records of the hero of Gettysburg and the hero (T) of Credit Mo biller and De Golyer fame. The tariff question waa well and ably discussed by Mr. Adam Hoy. To any one inquiring after truth the remarks of Mr. Hoy could not have had an effect other than to strike conviction to hit heart, and we have reason to believe that a few were convert ed. The meeting waa not a large one. nor were there any special effort* put forth to make it to. Though Walker township Democrats are not very demonstrative, yet they are not idle, and will, as usual, do their duty on the second of November. , SBTRETABT, NO. 13.
