THE SUPREME ISSUE IN PENNSYLVANIA.
The New York Sun, the ablest, most
influential and widely circulated of the
Independent journals of the country, in
a resent issue said :
" The reckless profligacy and prodi
gality of this Congress exceed all experi
"The farmers, the mechanics, the
laborers, and the plain people, as Mr.
Lincoln called them, who pay the great
body of the taxes by the sweat of their
brows, have cried aloud for relief; and
they have cried in vain.

creditable record. It has voted away
the people's money in wild extravagance
without any honest attempt to reduce
the burdens that weigh down industry
"If the Democrats are at all wise in
their nominations, and in presenting
the issue of retrenchment and reform,
as they did in 1874, history will be apt
to repeat itself in the experience of the
The present campaign in Pennsylva
nia is a State campaign, waged for the
redemption of the commonwealth and
the purification of its politics. While
the candidates of the Democracy are
Democrats, nominated in a Democratic
State convention, their records and the
platform on which they stand "invite
the co-operation of all honest citizens
who desire the re-establishment of hon
est government." That is the sole issue
of the contest. The Democracy aim at
the overthrow of boss rule, of the spoils
system, of legislative corruption, of ad
ministrative abuses and of pardon board
infamies. They present the most effec
tive means to do it by offering for elec
tion a stainless ticket of men known
to the State, whose courage is unchal
lenged. No honest government need
fear to vote for Pattison, Black, Africa,
Clark and Elliott.
Because they are Reformers and hon
est and intelligent men. They have
the brains to know the right and the
courage to fight the wrong.
Mr. Pattison is a young man who has
achieved a national reputation because
of his courageous and successful efforts
for municipal reform. For years the
tongue and pen of Mr. Black have been
engaged in the exposure and correction
of governmental abuses. Messrs. Clark
and Elliott were tall figures in the con
stitutional convention which accomplish
ed such reforms for Pennsylvania; while
Mr. Africa as chief clerk in the oflice for
which he is now the nominee, proved
himself so efficient and popular that in
1878 he ran ahead of his
When Pattison entered upon the du
ties of his oflice sh controller he found
official extravagance and municipal
maladministration prevailing to a re
markable degree in Philadelphia. The
permanentdebt, the departmentexpen
ses and tax rate were all increasing
yearly. From the very outset Pattison
turned the tide. He not only checked
the constant increase. He has effected
a steady decrease. Instead of an average
yearly addition of $3,622,400 to the
city debt there is now a steady reduc
tion of $1,246,737 per annum ; the de
partment expenses have gone down
from $8,184,961.20 to $6,883,226.92, a re
duction per annum of $1,301,634.28 ; and
the tax levy is reduced from $2.25 to
$1.90, a reduction of the annual burden
on property of 35 cents on every slooof
The Philadelphia Record, whose pro
prietor was a delegate to the State con
vention and voted against Mr. Pattison,
said of bim:
" It must he conceded that in the of
fice of controller of Philadelphia be has
given proofs of flrmnes->, integrity and
executive ability of a high order—vuali
ties that are eminently requisite for the
proper charge of the duties of the chief
magistracy of Pennsylvania. In his
management of the financial affairs of
the city he has brought order and sim
plicity out of chaos, and has introduced
an accountability in municipal trußts
which has saved large sums of money to
the taxpayer. He has permitted neith
er party nor personal considerations to
swerve him from the courageous dis
charge of his official duties. Thero are
many abuses in.the State government,
many and deep-seated, which await a
strong band of this kind for their eradi
cation. Partly by design and partly by
negleot, important provisions of the
constitution have failed of enforcement;
and the election of Pattison would af
ford a guarantee that the constitution
had at last been brought uuder the
guardianship of its friends."
The New York Snii thus points out
what would result from Pattison's elec
" The election of Pittison to be gover
nor would mean only in the State
what his election to be comptroller
meant in Philadelphia, a pure admin
istration, the scattering of the rings, the
baffling of the thieves, and an honest
and decent State government for the
term of four years, This may be a pros
pect full of terrors to the bosses, but it
has no terrors whatever for the tax
payers of any party."
Geoege Alfred Townsend, a bitter He
publican partisan, in writing of Pattison,
" He obtained the very responsible
place of comptroller, or watch-dog, of
the city treasury, there it was as
tonishing how one man, educated in
honor and the fear of God, could be dis
tinguished in a peculating and thieving
age. He positively did not know how
to steal, though he had been always
poor. This made him eminent in
Philadelphia politics, and very unfash
ionable. But it pleased the taxpayers,
who hardly knew what was theirs unless
they sat on it. And finally, at the age

How Heaver Was Nominated.
Chairman Cooper has lately sent out
a circular intended to show how .Stew
art was nominated. The following from
the American a Republican paper of high
character in Philadelphia tells exactly
how Beaver was nominated, nobody
knows it better than Cooper:
" Senator Cameron 'slated' General
Beaver for the governorship. Colonel
Quay agreed to the arrangement. Word
was sent throughout the State that the
'slate' had been made, and the answer
ing voices of approval come like a stal
wart chorus from every creature and
agent of the 'machine.' The terms of
praise for Gen. Beaver were even 'for
mulated ;' every 'machine 1 man told in
the same words what a Christian gentle
man he was. It was at this time that
General Beaver went to Washington.
His candidacy, thus arranged with Mr.
Cameron, involved the withdrawal of
other men, notably Mr. Cooper. The
latter went to Washington, likewise, to
learn whether he might or might not
be a candidate, and he was, as he can
didly told the newspaper men when he
returned, ordered to 'stand aside for the
present,' the nomination having been
this year conferred upon General Bea
ver. Cooper, therefore, came home with
a blank, Beaver with a prize. Cooper,
unfortunately for his hopes, has a 'kick
ker'county. It sent a Blaine delegate
to Chicago, who stubbornly resisted the
conspiracy by which General Grant was
to be nominatee for a third term, in
spile of the wishes of the Republican
States. But Beaver went to Chicago,
himself, from his county, and, misrepre
senting the people of his district and of
the State, joined heartily in the conspir
acy of which Conkling and Cameron
were the chief organizers. lie earned
then his brazen medal, and he earned
the nomination for governor that had
been denied him in 1878. When, there
fore, he repaired to Washington, almost
a yet.r before the election of IXB2, and
hastened to the presence of Mr. Cam
eron, lie went simply to receive a new
assurance that the old one would be
What the Bosses Have Hone.
These Regulars are guilty of the
shameless irregularities. They defied
the popular will in national convention
at Cincinnati in 1876, and again at Chi
cago in 1880; they ignored and repudi
ated public sentiment in 'be election of
a United States Senator in the winter
of 1881 ; they rejected and spurned the
popular demand in.the nomination of
State Treasurer last year, and to cap the
climax of irregularity now boldly at
tempt to coerce and bulldoze the rank
and file of the Republican party into
the support of a biu>s medal candidate
for Governor, whose chief merit consists
that in the past lie lias preferred fo

bosses rather than repre-ent toe inter

A passenger on one of the Atlantic
steamers relates the following amusing
incident as illustrating England's fanati

" When we were in mid-ocean the
ennui of the voyage became oppressive.
We were tired of pool selling, and as

opponents wildly irritated them by
making some pointed allusions to the
hypocrisy of England's position—that

reasons, yet, in reality, her motives were
of a purely selfish business character.

The Cameron Dynasty.

I'ERI'ETUATED IN BE NN SYLVAN IA.
The battle in Pennsylvania is a battle
against boss rule, and the spoils system
as personified and illustrated by Came
ronisin. The Democratic State plat
form declares squarely against both.
"First—We do protest against what
is called the boss system and the plun
dering of office holders by assessments
of money for political purposes. I'ub
lie offices are the property of no party
but are open to every citizen honest,
capable and faithful to the constitution,
qualifications which Jefferson declared
were the requisites for office.
"Second—We protest against the
spoiD system; it is a prostitution of
the offices of tho people, so that they
become the mere perquisites of the poli
The peopleof Pennsylvania are famil
iar with the history of Cameronism.
The denunciation of it has not been
confined to tho Democracy.
Nearly 20 years ago, William I). Kelly
then as now a Republican, and who is
the oldest Congressman in the Penn
sylvania delegation wrote : "No stone
may mark tho spot where my poor re
mains may finally rest, but 1 mean that
my children shall be able to vindicate
my name by pointing to the fact that
Simon Cameron and his confidential
friends were ever hostile to me."
In 1867 when Simon Cameron was
nominated for the United States Senate
by the Republican members of the
Pennsylvania legislature, the Philadel
phia K veiling liullctin, owned and pub
lished on tho same direction under
which it is now tho chief Stalwart organ
in the city said :
"It is disgraceful that a man whose
power and influence are avowedly due
to his wealth, should be made Senator
when such men as Stevens, C'urtin,
Grow, Kelley and a score of others, dis
tinguished for talent, integrity and
faithful service, were in the field. But
the mischief is done and cannot now
be repaired. There is no hope for any
thing beyond 'whitewashing' will be
done by the committee appointed to
investigate the rumors of bribery."
When the elder Cameron advanced in
years he sought to perpetuate the rule
of his family by transferring the politi
cal power of Pennsylvania to his son,
who was without either experience in
or capacity tor public affairs. How this
transfer was viewed by the people of
the state may be inferred froui the fol
lowing editorial camments of that con
servative journal, the Ledger, on the
"Word was sent out from Harrisburg
yesterday of a nature calculated to
puzzle those old-fashioned folk who sup
posed that 'Proprietary Government'
had como loan end in 1776. It is to
the effect that the representation of the
state in the Senate of the United States
is to be transferred from Cameron,
senior, to Cameron, junior—by virtue of
some amicable family arrangement, it
may be supposed. Whether the title
to succession is to be transferred by
deed or gifc, or by last will und testa
ment, or by any other ot the well
known modes of conveyance and inheri
tance is not made known in the de
spatches. The members of the legisla
ture are, of course, expected to vote, in
order to comply with the forms. Theo
retically, the representation of Penn
sylvania in the Senate of the United
States is supposed to involve the civil
and political rights of all the people of
Ihe commonwealth. In a party point
of a view at this tiuie it nearly concerns
the honor and manhood of the whole
Republican constituency of the state;
practically, however, if the above men
tioned report be true, it would look as
if those very agreeable gentleman, the
Canurons, regard the matter as it the
principal interest in it attaches to them
selves, and the docile members of the
legislature are doubtlpss expected to
take the same view. If there shall be
occasion lor any ballotingon thesubject
we shall have a chance to find out
whether the 'Proprietary Government'
really ended a hundred years ago, or is
continuing in lull vigor in our own
ine Ledger and the rest of the state
soon discovered that the "Proprietary
Government" continued in its full vigor.
The younger (Jumeron was elected Uni
ted States Senator simply because the
elder Cameron decreed it.
Months after that, when the burst of
indignation which followed this event
had subsided and men measured their
words, Benjamin Harris Brewster, now
the representative of Pennsylvania Re
publicanism in Arthur's Cabinet said :
"Last wiuter our people were shocked
with the election of J. Donald Cameron,
the irresponsible sou of a Senator of
whom I will not speak, because lie and
his acts have become a part of public
history and must be measured with
more deliberation thun can be given in
a casual conversation like this—a sou
that has neither mind, attainment,
dignity of character, knowledge of pub
lic affairs, party services or personal
worth to warrant his advancement, and
who has no record but a bad one as an
intriguer and manager of bad men. He
was first forced into the War Depart
ment as the price of bis offer to betray
his state and renominate General Grant,
and after being there he was so base
born in his notions of decency and gen
tlehood as to solicit and urge, by all the
mean arts of political contrivance, that
he should be retained as the companion
of Cabinet officers and gentlemen who
did not want him. Failing in that, by
tho coarse brute force of organized
power he jostled hta old father out of
his place and thrust himself into a
Senate where he will be an object of
derision and disgust. The public are
aick of these odious men, and the pub
lio will do away with them. We have
destroyed human bondage iu the South ;
we will next break down political
bondage in the North and South."
The people in Pennaylvania are mak
ing an effort to free themselves from
political bondage. Don Cameron pro
poses to perpetuate it by the election of
his man for Governor. When Beaver
was not his man he was beaten for the
nomination. In the convention of 1878
Beaver had no show. In 1880 he went
to the Chicago convention as a delegate.
He was instructed for Blaine. Ilis con
stituents were for Blaine. But he
pleased Cameron by "his offer to betray
hia state and renominate General
Grant." After he had thus proved him
self a "Stalwart of Stalwarts" Cameron
said "Hoys we'll go home and make Jim
Governor of Pennsylvania. The elec
tion of Heaver means the continuation
of "Proprietary Government" in Penn

The Tide of Immigration.
The Bureau of Statistics has just
issued its annual report, showing the
total immigration to the United States
for the year ending June 30, 1882. Its
first and most notable feature has refer
ence to the enormous proportions which
this foreign influx has assumed. The
total immigration for the current year
amounts to 789,003, or 119,572 more
than last year, when the highest total
was reached ever known in the history
of this country. Some idea of the rela
tive amount of this foreign addition to
our population may be gathered by the
statement that four years of such in
crease would aggregate a number equal
to the total population of the United
States at the time of the Revolution—
a population which it had required one
hundred and fifty years to reach.
Of this enormous sum Germany fur
nished the largest installment, her
quota aggregating 249,505. England
and Wales furnished 85,175; Ireland,
7f>,432, and Sweden, 04,607, while the
Dominion of Canada is credited with
98,308. a considerable portion of thern
undoubtedly being Europeans who
came through Canadian ;o ts. Nearly
two-thirds of the whole number, or 502,-
171, landed at New York. Huron stands
next in the list, with 71,424; Boston
follows with 58,887 ; Baltimore with 41 ,-
739, while Philadelphia stands fifth in
the list with 36,284. The most marked
proportional increase over the immigra
tion of last yearwas among the Chinese,
39,579 of whom arrived in 1882, as
against 11,890 in 1881.
If this extraordinary rate of immi
gration should be maintained for any
great length of time Uncle Ham's re
maining free domain will be circum
scribed very fast. A farm each for 100,-
000 families, besides what is required
for the natural increase of our own
population, will rapidly exhaust our
surplus lands. '
Notwithstanding Btrikes and other
evidences of discontent among our own
workingmen, this enormous migration
to our shores indicates that the laboring
people of the Old World believe that
they can better their condition very
materially by coming here and sharing
the lot of these discontented wage
earners. "The land of the free and the
home of the brave" seems to be still
the most atf.active couutry on the
green earth, judged by the rate at
which the peoples of nearly all oilier
civilized countries are flocking hither.
Phila. 1 imes.
An Unconstitutional Act.
The New York Herald, in an editorial
article concerning the veto of the Kiver
and Harbor bill, says that, a hundred
and twenty-three Representatives and
forty one Senutors of the United States
knowingly and wilfully voted to over
ride the constitution which they are
sworn to obey, when they voted in favor
of that measure. The writer takes the
ground that under the constitution
Congress has no power to vote money
for rivers and harbors except for pur
poses of common defence or the gen
eral welfare, or for promoting commerce
among the States or with foreign na
tions. To vote money for other pur
poses than these is a violation of the
constitution. Congress has no constitu
tional authority to make appropriations
to be spent on any river unless it be a
navigable stream of the United States
and forming a part of an interstate or
an international water highway. "If a
river," says the Supreme Court of the
United States, "is not of itself a high
way for commerce with other States or
foreign nations, or does not form such
highway by its connection with other
waters, and is only navigable between
different places within the same State,
then it is not a navigable water of the
United States, but simply a navigable
water of the State." And even in case
of a navigable stream of the United
Stales money can be constitutionally
appropriated and used only for pro
moting interstate or foreign commerce.
It cannot be constitutionally appro
priated or used for merely local objects
or purposes apart from the promotion
of interstate or foreign commerce.

Is It Dead ?
In the course of a remarkably pithy
and eloquent speech to a mass meeting
at Matamoras, JCol., Alfred E. Lewis,
candidate for the congressional nomina
tion in the l'ike district, said :
Our radical friends cannot conceal
their disgust at the respect shown by
democrats for the memory of Thomas
Jefferson. They have the most pro
found contempt for a dead statesman,
who has neither patronage nor plunder
to divide among them, and whose only
legacy to his grateful countrymen is an
obsolete manuscript called the "Consti
tution of the United States," This in
strument they have always despised,
and when opportunity has oll'ered
they have showed their contempt
fur it by trampling on its restric
tions. "Truly, the eastern proverb
that a living dog is better than a dead
lion," is the doctrine that finds most
favor with them. They pretend to
consider the teachings of Thomas Jeffer
son antiquated, unßUited to the govern
ment of the vast empire which has
grown from thirteen feeble colonies.
Is it true, my friends? Do some prin
ciples, whether of morals, government
or religion die? Is the " Sermon on the
Mount " less valuable as an embodiment
and epitome of the most cherished doc
trines of Christianity, than when it was
uttered to a dozen poor fishermen, car
penters and artisans?

WASHINGTON, August 7. —Riddleber-
ger opened the campaign for the ltead
juster at Woodstock, Va., to-day. His
speech, as reported, was swollen with
stump oratory of the fervid type and
WHS significant only because of his open
avowal of Mahone's alliance with the
Administration, by virtue of which for
present favors Mahone is to undertake
to hand over the State to the stalwarts
in 1884. Riddleberger declared "at the
the close of an eloquent passage," that
"we are for Arthur because Arthur is
for us." And then, as though fearing
that he might be getting his foot in it,
be concluded by picturing " the duty
and the advantages of a return to the
Virginiaism of Madison and Jefferson,"
on whioh sentiment he left his audience
to ruminate. The disclosure in publio
of the Administration alliance will
lead, acoording to Virginia politicians,
to lively proceedings on the stump dur
