Temperance People Who Consider the
Amendment Too Radical.
The Constitutional amendment is popular
in the Juniata Valley. Union, Mifflin,
Juniata and Huntingdon counties arc all
promised tor majorities by the Pro
hibitionists. The saloon interest in
all of them is very small. Snyder
county, however, with a strong array of
Butch farmers, will give a majority against
the amendment. Hon. Charles S. Wolfe,
late Prohibitionists' candidate for Governor,
will not engage actively in the campaign,
Although a supporter of the amendment.
ITCOX OCE SPECIAL COMMISSIONER.
Letvisbcrg, February 22. From this
town the Prohibitionists took their last can
didate for Governor, Charles S. Wolfe. Of
course Mr. Wolte will vote tor the amend
ment, bnt from his friends I learn that he
will take no prominent part in the cam
paign. It wonld not do. For the famous
revolt he led against the Republican party
some years ago he still incurs the hatred of
that party, and because he wasalterward the
standard-bearerof the third party non-partisan
temperance people would now be afraid
of public assurances of friendship from him.
Mr. Wolle knows all this full well, and be
sides that a winter of ill-health, and an
accumulation of legal business upon his
desk, would prevent him Ircm becoming
one of the managers of this fight, even if he
desired to. It was for the last two reasons
that he did notattend the bis; Constitutional
Amendment Convention in Harrisburg this
T.eek, although he had to accept an invita
tion six days before to address the Baptist
ministers os' Philadelphia on the impracti
cability of high license laws, and in that
speech he dininctiv outlined his position as
upon the side of the new movement. He
was not at home when I arrived here.
A DKT LITTLE COUKTT.
Although a small territory, and with bnt
e small vote. Union county will add a con
siderable mite to the temperance majorities
as they touch the line of battle the Sus
quehanna river in June. In 1873 she
adopted local option by 2.18 majority with
only a total vote of 2,500. Now she will
jjive probably 500 majority for the amend
ment. The educational and refining influ
ences common with all college towns are
noticeable in Lewisburg; the county seat,
where the Bnckwcll University has 350 stu
dents of both seies. Many Baptist preach
ers, Charles S. Wolle, J. Simpson Africa,
and other well-known politicians, are mem
bers of the university's alumni. Of the
prospects in the county John Cornelius,
editor of the Lewisburg Chronicle said to
Union countv will do handsomely for the
amendment. We will Rive it a larger'majority
than we aid for local option, because the popu
lation has increased since tnen, and there lias
been a constant agitation of temperance sub
jects since then. We will probably doable the
majority of 1S73. There are lint comparatively
lew licenses in the county now. We are mainly
an agricultural people, although a considera
ble business :s done in the production of prop
lumber, thatis Umbers forproppinc purposes in
Coal mines. The farmers and the college influ
ences will give Union county over to cold
water. Our Prohibitionists are every active,
having already held an enthusiastic public
SNTTOEB IS FOE BEER.
Howard Miller, formerly Supervisor of
the Census in Westmoreland county, is now
a resident of Union county. He is working
in the cause of the amendment with whole
heart and soul, and what makes his work
notable is the fact that he is a Dunkard.
Between Lewisburg and Huntingdon there
are a great many Dunkard families, and
among these Mr! Miller is said to be doing
Bctive missionary work lor the amendment.
Snyder county, which adjoins Union on
the south, will probably vote against the
amendment. Its agricultural regions are
populated by the old-tashioned Pennsyl
vania Dutch, allied with the newer arrivals
of Germans, and beer is regarded by them
as one of the necessities of lite. With that
beliel they regard this as a sumptuary law,
and already a strong teeling of opposition is
apparent among them. The county is
Democratic in politics. Selin's Grove "and
Middleburg are its largest towns. In 1873,
with'a total vote of only 2.C00, she gave a
majority of close upon 1,00 against local
option, and that overwhelming sentiment
in favor of license has not been absorbed
Tery much by the increased population since
US' JUNIATA COUNTY.
It was only 9:10 at night when I got off
the train at'Mifilintown, the county seat of
Juniata county, but it was at the very best
hour to get an illustration of how prohibi
tion works in some sections. Kobus met the
train, nor was there a single hotel porter on
hand to take charge of the grip of the be
lated traveler. After ten minutes walk from
the depot you can imagine you are in the
center of the town. It is easier to imagine
than be positive of the fact, became the
streets are dark as Egypt, no lights appear
anywhere, stores are all closed tight, and
every dwelling houe appears to be asleep.
Even the hotel proprietor yawns and rubs
his eyes to sec a stranger arrive at that hour.
The next morning when daylight enabled
me to make sure that I really was in Mif
flintown, and that it was not a deserted vil
lage, I heard this explanation from E, B.
McCrum, the Justice of the Peace:
We have just three licenses in theVhole
county, and none In Miffllntuwn. A year or
two ago, when wc had bars here, the moun
taineers from across the valley would come
into town, tie their teams to the public hitch
ing ports, and there they would stand hitched
until midnight. Now you seldom see a Iiut
or wagon hitched on our streets later than S
o'clock at night, and by 9 o'clock the town is
practically in bed.
. T.1U? co"nty gave 779 majority for local option
In 1S73. Then our total vote was 500, and
about COO people did not voteatalL Now wo
haVO a total vote of 3.700. Enthnciacm vll
run high between this and June, and I do not"
aoncjpaie mm more than mo voters will stay
at home on election day. and they will be oppo
nents of the amendment. Liquor men them
selves do not expect to find more than 50 votes
against tne amendment in ever voting district
which would aggregate WW. 'So. subtract 900
from a possible 2,500 vote and iou have my
estimate or the majority for prohibition luJu
MIFFLIN COUNTT. TOO.
Lying alongside or Juniata on the west
is Mifllin county. It gave a majority of
nearly 900 lor local option 15 vears ago, and
since then has never had more than 17 li
censed saloons, with only 13 now. The Con
stitutional Amendment Association has a
branch composed of prominent Republicans
and Democrats, who are all very hard at
work. They will hold a second meeting on
the 20th inst.
Lafayette "Webb, Esq., the prothonotarr
of the county, gave me some interesting in
formation during a brief stay in Lewistown,
the county seat. Said he:
I have heard a great many people predict
from 1.000 to 1,500 majority for the amendment
in Mifflin county, I think they arc about cor
rect. In the country districts the vote tot pro
hibition vtill be large Even in Lewistown,
where we have a steel works, I should not be
surprised to see the amendment carry. I know
a number of temperance people, however, who
will vote against it because they regard it as
too radical to win. On the other hand I have
heard of even more drinkerp'who will vote for
the issue to remove all temptations. Public
sentiment is undoultcdly predominant in this
county, as shown by the fact that remonstran
ces against liquor license every year are
signed by a majority of the people, and
by the last election of Senator here.
James N. Wnods is the Senator from Mlfltin,
Juniata and Perry counties. He was known to
be ready to vote for tho submission resolution
at Harrisburg. and yet he got the heaviest vote
polled in this county at that election. In this
county alone he had S3 votes, while the Con
gressman only seenred 30S and the third party
Prohibition candidate only 105.
HUNTINGDON'S BIG WORK.
Huntingdon county is just west of Mif
flin. It will give an overwhelming vote for
the amendment. A majority of 1,170 for
local option in 1873 will be increased, if
predictions of prohibitionists be woith any
thing, to nearly 2,500 for the amendment.
A rigid weeding-outol licenses has been the
rule in the county for the past few years and.
temperance sentiment there has had a re
markable growth. General F. H. Lane o f
the town of Huntingdon, is one of the Vice
Presidents of the State Constitutional
Amendment Association, and withhim in this
fight are Major D. P. Gwin, J. K. Simpson,
R. R. Whaling, W. M. Williamson, D. K.
Freeman, G. W. Garrettson, S. B. Chnney,
J. E. Smucker, W. H. Woods, John Brew
ster, James S. Woods, C. K. McCarthy,
Hugh Lindsay and A. B. Brumbaugh, all
prominent citizens. They are anxiou3to
avoid all partisan strile, especially with
the third party.
On the whole Huntingdon, Lewistown
and Mifflintown would vote for the amend
ment if for no other reason than to stop
Harrisburg from selling liquor. The reason
is that ever since these three towns have
tried to enforce law and order, the city of
Harrisburg sends a carload of kegs of beer
to their depots every Saturday night and
bottles during the week.

DETEOIT, February 22. At a banquet
of the Michigan club to-night 1,100 guests
were present. Hon. Warner Miller, of Hew
York, was introduced as the man who made
the breach through which the Bepublican
party was led to victory. He said:
The historian, in portfaving the progress of
America, w ill spend most of his time on tbat part
of the time which the Republican party was at
the head of the Government. It was the Re
publican party tbat proved that the United
State was a envernment and not a league that
could be dissolved at any time. In the 2o years
of our domination we had quadrupled the re
sources of the country, forced the frontier into
the Pacific Ocean, and made the name of
America respected the world over.
Calhoun, the great exponent of the Demo
cratic party, taught that the great and only
duty ot Government was the protection of the
people from foreign inva-iun. He made the
Government a little more than a police force,
but the Republican party taught that it was
tne amy oi me government not oni v to aeiena
but to educate and. help. The Republican
party held it was not only its duty to educate
the people so that they should not be law
breakers, but should educate them in the in
terests of common humanity.
The Democratic party cries out against
sumptuary laws and it is the direct outgrowth of
the Calhoun doctrine that J ou have no right to
legislate for the morals of the people. The
Republican rarty stands for the advancement
of temperance, and always has. It may not be
going as last is some enthusiasts would have it,
but it is doing the best it can. The question
must be settled in each State. The prosperity
of the country depends on the continuation of
the success of the Republican party. The Re
publican party appeals to its past, and offers it
as an earnest of what it will do In the future.
The Republican party holds that the Govern
ment has to do with the education, the moral
standing, the improvement and the protection
of the country.

Tho Bill for That Purpose Passes the
House of Kepresentatives
AFTER AS ACRIMONIOUS DEBATE.
Mr. Randall Found Among the Champions
of the General's Cause, and
HENDERSON SPEAKS FOR A BRATE IAN,
But Borne Members Cannot Forget Eoiecrans'
ment of Grant.
The bill to retire General Bosecrans
passed the House yesterday, after an excep
tionally Acrimonious debate. Randall was
among those who espoused the, General's
cause. Another of his champions was Mr.
Henderson, of Iowa, who fought with
"Eosy," and who said he was the only Gen
eral he ever saw who marched into the
thickest of the battle at the bead of bis
Washington; February 22. In the
House, to-day, Mr. Eahdall, from the Com
mittee on Rules, reported a resolution for
the immediate consideration of the Senate
bill for the retirement of William Bose
crans, with the rank of Brigadier General.
The resolution was adopted and the bill
taken up. Mr. Spinola, of 2Jew York, de
sired to offer an amendment authorizing the
President to appoint and retire J. C.
Fremont as Major General, but under the
terms of the resolution the provision was
ordered in the bill and the amendment
could not be received. The bill was then
taken up and was vigorously opposed by
Mr. Struble, of Iowa, on the ground that
General Bosecrans had vilified General
Grant and had declared that Grant was a
scoundrel. This man who had vilified the
name of the country's hero came hereto-day
and asked for aid without a word of apology,
or vithout showing that he had changed his
Mr. Anderson, of Iowa, said that at one
time he had thought, in consequence of an
assault made by General Bosecrans upon
General Grant, that he could never forgive
General Bosecrans. But he had changed
with time, and he had come to the con
clusion that the manly thing to do, in view
of the great infirmities of human nature,
which attached to the greatest heroes, was
to vote ior this bill.
A USELESS PROTEST.
Mr. Boutelle, of Maine, protested against
the House giving even a quasi indorsement
of the atrocious assault made by General
Bosecrans upon General Grant.
Mr. Cannon, of Illinois, said he was not
voting to put General Bosecrans on the re
tired list because of what he had said, bnt
because ot what he had done; and be be
lieved that jt" Ulysses S. Grant could be
called from the grave and stand in his pres
ence, he would be broad enough and grand
enough to sweep aside the scenes which took
place alter the war, arising from passion
and prejudice, and say: "I will vote to put
the name of this man on the retired list in
obedience to the wishes of a great block of
soldiers in the late war, and on account of
his services in the war." Applause.
Mr. Cutchcon, of Michigau, woe Id vote
for the bill not because of what General
Bosecrans had said of General Grant (for
that he greatly regretted), but because of
what Bosecrans did and what Bosecrans
was in the war that maintained the Union.
Mr. Holmes, of Iowa, was astonished that
any true friend of Grant should arise and
attempt to cast Parthian shafts at General
Bosecrans. He stood out as one of the
heroes ot victory of the late war. The men
who had fought with him would never bear
his name tarnished and be silent. In the
course of his remarks, Mr. Holmes said:
"General Grant was an autocrat when the
war ended, and endeavored to blot the name
of Bosecrans, as it were, from the roll of the
army, and attempted to tarnish his fair
EAKDALli SPEAKS FOE EOST.
Mr. Bandall warmly espoused the cause
of General Bosecrans.
Mr. Perkins, of Kansas, said a few years
ago General Bosecrans had stood on this
floor and opposed the Grant bill, saying
that he did so on principle, and that it was
wrong to enlarge the retired list for the ben
efit of those who had gone into private
walks of life. Applying that principle to
his own case, he (Mr. Perkins) could not
see how General Bosecrans could ask tor
the pending legislation. At Chickamau.yi,
had it not been for General Thomas, who
formed a wall against which the rebel
forces broke themselves, General Bosecrans'
name would have gone down to dishonor
rather than in honor. Remembering this,
and remembering the position which Gen
eral Bosecrans had taken on the Grant bill,
he could not vote for the needing measure.
Mr. Jackson, of Pennsylvania, replying,
said the gentleman from Kansas (Mr.
Perkins) had asserted that but for Thomas,
Bosecrans would have been disgraced at
Chickamauga. If it had not been lor the
men in the ranks not a soldier would have a
reputation as a General to-day. It was
Bosecrans who had enabled Thomas to stand
as a wall against the assaults of the enemy.
HE FOUGHT WITH HIM.
Mr. Henderson, of Iowa, said he intended
to vote for "Bosy." He had fought under
Bosecrans at Corinth, and Bosecrans was
the only general officer he had ever seen
closer to the enemv than were the men in
the ranks for in that battle Bosecrans had
marched at the front of the ranks when the
flower of Price's army was dealing death
and hell. Protected by the God of liattles,
he had passed along the lines and shouted:
"Countrymen 1 stand by your flag
and by your country 1" They had
obeyed his orders; had crushed Price's
army, and had given the countrv the
great triumph of the battle of Corinth.
Bosecrans had been the central and leading
spirit oi mat uauie. ae (sir. Henderson;
cared pot for the bickerings or growlings,
afterward. He cared not that Grant and
Bosecrans had exchanged courtesies which
were not courteous. It was enough for him
that a comrade was asking for recognition.
Mr. Weaver, of Iowa, Mr. Sowden, of
Pennsylvania, and Mr. McKenna, of Cali
fornia, also favored the bill as a matter of
justice to General Bosecrans.
Mr. Struble was pained that his colleague
(Mr. Holmes) should in his zeal fjr Gen
eral Bosecrans asert a thing of General
Grant which the country wonld not receive
with approval. He regretted that his col
league should attempt to put upon General
Grant the name of autocrat and dictator.
Mr. Holmes rose to deny the use of the
latter term, but Mr. Struble declined to
yield, saying: "Ton ought to be ashamed
of yourself, and sit down forever in the
face of these remarks. '
After further debate the bill was passed.

The Bcnvcr Country Prohibition Amendment
Convention Judge Aencw la Chosen
Chairman and Mnhcs n Radicnl Address.
rSFECIAL TELEGRAM TO THE OISPATCH.I
Beater, February 22. The County Con
stitutional Amendment Convention met
here to-day with about 200 delegates. Judge
Daniel Agnew was chosen as Permanent
Chairman of the organization. He spoke as
Gpntlemen of the Convention:
I thank yon for the honor conferred, though
hesitatimr'to accept, owing to my Infirmity of
voice, we are engaged, gentlemen, in one of
the grandest efforts which has ever inspired a
free people. No such attempt has ever been
made to de-trov the great enemy of our race.
To Amcricap freemen alone has this appeal
been made. Profane philosophy and tho
Christian sstems have long taught us temper
ance, but the curb of an appetite inherited in
nature has hitherto been limited to tho pun
ishment of open drunkenness, and the restraint
of tlic sale' of intoxicants.
Now advancine civilization and experience
have discovered that an appetlto formed in tho
human constitution cannot be limited to tem
perate bounds so long as freedom to indulge
and the means of gratification co-exist. Noth
ing less than governmental control can snbdue
appetite or overcome the depravity which rain
iste to it This subjection consists in the ab
solute control of the manufacture of the intoxi
cant and the entire direction of their salo and
An inordinate appetlto for liquor Is an ab
erration, like insanit., from a sound condition
of self control, and when it becomes habit
ual is recognized by the law as well as by com
mon consent, as taking from the drunkard the
freedom of ordinary aetion. This It' does for
the good of the individual and safety of society.
But so long as the cause of this abuse exists
how can those be arrested who are only on the
highway to habit. If the absolute control of
the Government of the source of abuse be
necessary to free men from the intemperate in
dulgence of appetite, and to protect
society from the crimes and burdens of
drunkenness. What man in his sound mind
will deny its rightfulness, or oppose its ex
ercise. In the absence of a true experience, if
it should be objected that society and govern
ment cannot pertorm tin." unquestionable
duty the answer still is plain, that the great
good to be obtained demands the experiment
to be made, until human experience demon
strates that society unciuuing numan nature)
cannot reach or realize the end proposed, and
if this result be so, what woe abides the
human race. If mankind must rest in sub
jection to indulgence, folly and crime, it is a
deplorable confession that the race cannot rise
in civilization to that station which duty to
our country and the high destiny intended by
Providence so dearly demands.
But, gentlemen, I cannot and I feel you can
not consent to this low opinion of American
trccman. No. the same godlike qualities
which secured liberty and union to the Revo
lutionary fathers, and since then liberation to
the slave, will sound the tocsin of freedom
from the basest of appetites and bring happi
ness to thousands of houses. Then let us be
united in this great cause. Let no folly, no
want of unity, no cowardice drive ni f 10m the
end we seek7, the extermination of drunken
ness and all its woes. No partystrile, no sense
less clamors, no useless jars should stay the
We recognize in it no division except that
bonndary which separates vice from virtue and
public safety from public ruin. We make no
war on men, but rather do we hope to win them
irom tneirwajs, aiiu to see tnem enjoy tne
same happiness and prosperity we so much de
sire for all. It is not onr purpose to attack or
to persecute the saloon keeper or liquor seller,
bnt to arrest and to take into custody the
liquor to make it a prisoner of State, permit
ing it to go at large only on prison leave. We
believe constitntional prohibition is tho only
true remedy, and It will succeed, giving it such
time and opportunity to prevail as every great
social change must have to enable it to work its
way. I trust Beaver county will give a good
account of herself in the great reform.

New Yoek, February 22. The case of
the Conserva, formerly known as the
Madrid, the steamship libeled by United
States District Attorney "Walker, of Brook
lyn, for violation of the neutrality laws,
was heard in Brooklyn to-day before Judtje
Benedict. John Campbell, an assistant en
gineer on the Conserva, testified that he
signed articles on the Conserva on Feb
ruary 15. Captain M. S. Cooper was pres
ent at the time, and Mr. C. F. Kuhnhardt.
It was agreed between the witness, Mr.
Kuhnhardt and Captain Cooper that when
the Carondelet, Mr. Julia's steamer, that
sailed from New York some time ago with
an infant arsenal aboard, arrived atSunnina
and transferred her cargo to the Conserva,
he (Campbell) was to act as assistant en
gineer on ber under Captain Cooper lor 125
a month. He understood that the vessel
was to be engaged in the service of Hip
polyte, of the north of Hayti.
Charles Hopkins, the second witness, tes
tified that he had a similar talk in Captain
Coopes presence, andmadealike agree
ment to act as chief engineer on the Con
serva at 175 a month, his engagement to
begin at Samana. The case was adjourned
until Monday morning.

ISPECIAl, TELEGRAM TO THE DlSPATCn.l
Columbus, O., February 22. Senator
Ford, a cousin of Passenger Agent E. A.
Ford, this evening introduced a bill which
was prepared by the general passenger
agent and left here by him last week, while
in the city, to speak on the 2-cent fare bill.
It provides that all railroad and steamboat
companies shall furnish their agents who
may deal in tickets or transportation in
any manner, with a certificate of authority
to do so, and that no other personsball be
allowed to handle the tickets of any rail
road company or steamboat company, under
a penalty of 500 and imprisonment. The
object is to do away with the scalpers in
The bill also provides that all railroad or
steamboat companies shall redeem any part
of tickets which have not been used, and
makes provision for this in the same con
nection. PITT TT!lITrrmT intlieSundayissue

who attempted to cure it; hut it spread with al
most Incredible rapidity, until the lower por

was wrought, leaving the little fellow's person
as white and healthy as though he bad never

CLEAR SKIN. PURE BLOOD.
No mother who loves her children, who takes
pride in their beauty, purity and health, and in
bestowing upon them a child's greatest inheri
tance, a skin without a blemish, and a body
nourished by pure blood, should fail to make
trial of the Cuticura Remedies.
I have seen the Cuticura Remedies used for
milk-crust by a visitor in my house, and can
testify that the cure was speedy and 'perma
nent; I hare also used them mj self, for erup
tions of the skin on my little child, with satis
factory results in every respect. The skin was
broken out a.nd began to assume ugly propor
tions. I have alio heard my neighbors speak
of the Cuticura Remedies in the highest terms.
