The people may as well face the
facts and prepare for the inevitable
struggle. The enemxin front is the
same that has eonfrated the , party
of patriotism and progress for twen-
ty-five years. .I.t has not changed
even in name. .The party that of
•fered the infamous comprOmise
. ?t
1550 . , that Tepealed•the compromi se
of 1820 in 1854, that sought to fas
ten, slavery and its fatal reaction
upon Kansas and Nebraska, and final-
I,y, battled in its w,icked . pnrpose, sat
rendered at the first demand of trea
son in IN—that party is the foe in
front. After ill that it has done to
destroy the nation the people seem
to haVe forgOttea. that to pat faith
in Democratic promises is to invite
betrayal, and the outcome of this
lapse of memory is a Democratic
Congress. This, humanly speaking,
is a great national calamity. If, at
any time during the rebellion and
for half a ,dozen years thereafter, any
one had Predicted a Democratic Con-
gress as probable within. twenty
years, the prophet would have been
set down a lunatic or a fool. The
people; are slow tq take in the possi
bilities of inaction. They had their
littlelgrurable„and their little -devia
- tionalrom the straight path of duty in
search of false. gods. They .I:Lave
amuaed themselves, but not at the
expense of the foes of liberty.. They
have danced to the piping. of dema
gogued„ and now they must pay the:
piper. The loothlehs and wrinkled
. hags of Wities, long ago,cast out of
party councils, have come forward
thinly .disguiiedlin borrowed livery,
and made themielves so acceptable
to the discontented and .disappointed,
that such have gone astray;
But as all roads leads to' Rome, so
all by-If - albs inpolitics lead into the
enemPs camp. •The masses seem Ito
*have discovered this in time to pre=
vent a disaster last November. The
duty/1 of .the Republican press i i sto
keeXis fact fresh in memory. The
'Detnoeratic party in Congress is do
ingbtich to assist in the work: The
cipher dispatch investigation is daily
. making revelations of Democratic
perfidy: The witnesses, with the
plain assent of the Democratic lead
ers, haVe studied how best they could
give half-truths the outward sem
blance of facts, and facts the sen -
blarice 'of lies. It must not be for
gotten that these clever persons were
in, the closest confidences, of the
great fraud-shrieker and polities]
jockey Who led the Democratic for
- ces in 1876. SAMUEL J. Tilden is
the core of ,the Democratic party,
and that partyis therefore hopelessly
rottenlat the core. To the optimis
tic persons who affect to think that
something may be gained by coquet
ting with the, Democracy, the ques
tion may be put—what time during
the decade that preceded the, war
- were the frienils of freedom or- opin
ion that this country had shy good
to bope for from Democratic rule ?
. At what timed uring the war did any
Republican suggest Democratic rule
as a measure of safety' or relief to
the -republic . ? To these questions
there can be but one reply ; and that
is that at no time for ten years/dor
to, or during the war for national
unity did any pronounced Republi
can regard the possibility of Demo
cratic rule with other than the grav
est apprehensions.
- The next iqueathin is—When, if
ever,. has the Democratic manage
ment, within the last , twenty-five
years, abandoned a single purpose it
cherished 'and avowed 'from the be
ginning of that period down to and
throughoutthe war? In what has it
• changed its intentions or modified
its policy ? Who of its old. leaders
who crowned it with the infamy of
• treason has been discarded? Which
of its old time methods has it put
away? What use did it make of
power partially regained? What
!lid it dO When it gained the Rouse
that, tetoliens a better mind and a
more patriotic purpose ? What are
its acknowledged leaders doing, in
Congress and out, to-day, to shot
that they have reformed their nieth
,Os or their plans? If the Demo
crats have Changed their plans, or
abandoned a single ptirpose, or modi
fied their policy, or discarded a sin
ogle leader, or made any other use of
power regained except to abase it—
if they have done ahr of these things,
•somebody can show it. And if they
have not done. any of these thini,
as we affirm they have not, then will
somebody tell the people why they
' should expect'any good from Demo
cratic rule, or how any patriot can
ally himself with such a party and
retain his self-respect.
Tus Cause of the threatened out
break among the the Western Penn
sylvania miners itMue• not so much'
to the refusal to inereise wages from
21 to 3 cents per bushel for mining
las to the fact that they find it im
possible to avoid dealing at -what-
are termed "company stores," where
to "truck syßtein" prevails; and
where the prices charged are forty
per cent. higher than elsewhere. If
the miners used as mach energy in
meeting this difficulty as they waste
'in fruitless violence, the cause for
-j-such ill-timed and ill-advised move
, meats would soon cease to exist.

During the era of extravagance
and debt accumulation consequent
upon the enhanced values and ildh-
Led currency of the war times, there
was a notable increase of the debts
of. corporations and counties. The,
latter, in manyWies, endeavoring to
avert the consequences of the draft
compromised by the payment of large
bounties to substitutes, relieving the
citizens from the necessity of,perso
nal militiry duty, but saddling town
ships, boroughs and counties with al
heavy indebtedness, Which years of
burdensome taxes, in many cases,
has not yet been sufficient to wipe'
out. In the case of cities and villa
ges, the rage for -expenditure and
speculation took the &rill of the
wildest and most - unreasonable pro
jects for =improvements. . Streets
were laid out, graded and paved, ex.
pensive sewers constructed, and
what was fallaciously supposed to be
public spirited improvements, but
were - in reality needless expenditures,
were indulged in without sense or
necessity. There is hardly a munici
pal corporation in the country that
is not= now groaning 'under the bur
den of debts contracted for improve
mentswhich were at least a quarter
of a century in advance of the natu
ral growth of the placc o , or the re
quirements of the inhabitant:a. This
tendency to squander public moneys
was made easy and greatly increaaed,
,by the facility with which bonds were
disposed of or loans effected. To
meet the interest on these debts, new
loans were made, until the aggregate
became frightful, and when a cote
mercial revulsion came with "hard
times" and its natural want of confi
dence, and difficulty -of- placing new
loans, bankruptcy and repudiation
became imminent.
A notable example of the facility
with , which municipal indebtedness
can be incurred, and a. remarkable
instance of extravagance, not to say ,
profligacy, may be witnessed in the
case of our neighbor t wn , William
sport.• That unfortunate village,
when ruled over by PETER HERDIC,
launched out into the wildest schemes
of "improvements." Miles of ex
pensive streets were laid out,,and
covered with. wooden pavements—
costly sewers were built—the city
limits extended far into the country
—and the moat reckless and costly
measures taken to stimulate an arti
ficial growth of its extent and busi
ness. Now the - municipal anthori
ties defy the judgments of the Court,
and trample upon honesty and jus
tice by denying the plain rights of '
their creditors. The reaction has ta
ken place, and the attempt to unduly
and unnaturally force the growth of
the city, results in burdens which
will be felt for twenty years, retard
ing its prosperity and crippling the
energies and
,business of its citizens.
For the vast amounts spent, and for
the great debt Which now weighs like
an incubus upon its business, no sub
stantial good has been realized, and
the city would have been much more
prosperous l had, it not been the vic
tims of such intensely public spirited
citizens as PETER HERDIC.

the wisest of the. Washington cor

not easy of sollition. The Democ
racy is divided as to the policy of
creating the necessityfor calling to
gether the new Congress before the
regular day of ' assanbling. The
more decent of - that partyare averse
to it, as unnecessary and dangerous.
Others are determined to force legis
lation favorable to the rebels who are
still out in the cold, and to repeal
laws which stand in the way of their
entire control of the ballot-boxes in 1
the South. Some of the statutes
now in force stand in the way of that
perfect bull-dozing. which is the•de
light of the Southern Democrat, and
they demand the repeal of the obnox
ious sections, or in case of failure
threaten to create the necessity for
an extra session. The Republicans
can afford to stand by their princi

a guarantee for fair elections, and if

PETER Manic, who has gonessouth
for the benefit of his health, has,left
behind him as remembnincer, a debt
r 1
incurred by the city of Williamsport
of nearly $500,000, in bonds and !
overdue interest, issued is 1868,
when he "run" the city, for the lay
ing of Nicholson pavement, building
sewers, and' other, improvements.
These borni4 were negotiated and
put up its;z9llaterals by Mr. HERDIC,
at from sisty j to seventy cents on the
dollar. The . ; city authorities, bur
dened with.this immense debt, and.
threatened, with bankruptcy, attemp
ted:to dispute the legality of the,
bonds, although the Supreme Court
has decided • that those who took
them in good faith must be paid, and
Judge ELWELL, of the Columbia Coun
ty Court—Where judgment had oi igi
nally been obtained—isstied a man
damus requiring that the overdue in
terest be raised and paid. This has
never been - done, and another ; batch
of coupons falling due on the first of
March, Judge ELWELL has, on mo
tion, .issued a trule returnable the
20th, on Councils and Treasurer to
show cause why an attachment
should not issue for disobedience of
the mandate of the Court.
- As the city cannot repudiate its
debts, nor evade their payment, after
the example of Memphis, by surren
dering its charter, thii-orerivhelming
and burdensome debt must be paid
by taxation which will press heavily
upon the property" holders of Will
iamsport. We commend the lesson,
to the people of .Western Bradford,
who were so anxious for the new
county . of Miunequa. Had Hxn-,
DIC'S scheme prevailed, the -farms of
the new county would not have been
worth the debt and taxes with which
they would have been saddled.

The municipal election took place on
Tuesday, and was rather a tame affair,
though a full vote was generally polled.
Tbo election was for members of Council,
School Directors, and election officers. Li
the Fourth Ward, an aft npt was made
by a portion of the. Democracy connected
with the Sheriff's office, to defeat William
McMullen, who was a candidate for selec
Councils. The Fourth Ward has an un
enviable reputation, • as being the ward
whore Democratic majorities are manu
factured to order, of any size, and Mc-
Mullen is King therein. He was triumph
antly elected, as was expected,.. There
'were no rows, however, and though the
free and indeperaient voters were "still
ing for a fight," they stood in wholesome
awe of Mayor Stokelcy's police, wbo Were
on hand to keep the peace. In fact, the
Mayor sent for all the parties concerned,
the evening before the election, and noti- -
fied them that he intended there should
be a fair and peaceable eldction in that
ward, if it took all the police of the city
to accomplish it—and as the Mayor means
what he says—the hint was sufficient.
Principally the interest centered in the
election of election officers. Your readers
will hardly understand how much impor. :
tance, in a city is attached to having your
friends on the election board. It is eve
rything, and sometimes produces aston
ishing results, when the votes are count
ed, or when the result is announced. If
"e ernal,vigilatice is the price of liberty,"
so the Republican majority in this city is
enintained and constantly increased by
UM ceaseless activity 'and untiring exer
tions of those who "run the machine."
The political organization is 'Perfect, and
its operations conducted with, matchless
shrewdness and industry. No sooner are
the polls chiksed, than the

to lay their plans and get in their work
for the next, and the political cauldron is
constantly boiling and bubbling. There
are no better organiz,ers, nor skilful man
agers, in the country, than the leaders in
this city. They may wrangle over the di
vision of the spoils, but when the common
enemy is to be met, you would think they
were a band of brothers.

In accordance with the adjournment on
Friday. the 14th inst., the Legislature
did not get to work this week until Wed
nesday evening, the.l9th in s t. ' The sea.
sions-in both the Senate and House on
that evening were devoted tobills on first
reading. One of the reforms of the new
Constitution is that all bills passed by the
Legislature "shall be read three different
times, on three different. days." The
first reading of bills is, therefore, a mere
formality, to which no one pays any at
tention, and which is gone through with
for the purpose of coming up to the re
quhements of the Constitution, the read
ing clerks getting in their work us rapid
ly as possible, and frequently skipping
whole- pages, where a bill is long, to fa
cilitate the work. On Wednesday even
ing 46 bills were thus disposed of in the
Senate, and 121: in the Houk,. so it will
be seen that the calendar of bills on sec
ond and third readings, the stages at
which they are considered and discussed,
is in a fair way to assume formidable pro
portions. -Among these bills in the Sen
ate was one called up by Senator Davies,
"an act.providiug for the more speedy re
lief of Poor and indigent persons."
The nomination of 11. F. Goodman,
Esq., of Sayre, Bradford county, sent in
by the Governor, to be notary public, was
on motion of Senator Davies, unanimous
ly confirmed on Wednesday evening. It
is predicted by those who know him best
that Mr. Uoodman will bear the honors
of the official position thus conferred upon
him, with niodest dignity, and that he
will neither fail to recogniie old acquain
tances nor forget his poor relations.
Among the most important of the bills
which passed first reading in the House
at this evening session, were the follow
ing :

of women prisqn inspectors.
An act to provide for equality in rates
of transportation, storage and handling
of property carried wholly or partly by

In the Sinate on Thursday, Mr. Jones,
Chaitntan of • the Committee on Federal
Relations, to which bad been referred the
anti-discrimination instruction reiolution;
made repOrt to the effect that the concur
rent resolution relatiye to the inter-s.tite
commerce bill be passed as amended by
the Senate, instructing Pennsylvania Uni
ted States. Senators to vote for such mod
eration of the Reagan bill as will make it
apply to all common carriers.
Mr. Gazzam presented a minority re
port, signs& by himself and Mr. Ever
hart, in favor of the original resolution
to instruct for the Reagan bill "straight."
Action on the reports was postponid
antil Wednesday afternoon nest, at which
time a spacial session for that purpose
will be held.
Ainong the bills introduced in the Sen
ate on Thursday, was one by Mr. Cooper,
of Delaware; to define the liability and
pleadings in civil actions for libel. This
act is said to have been drawn up by Col.
.Mcelnre, of the Philadelphia Times.
Alec has been them often enongh to know
something about what a libel law ought
to be, and if. it is true that the present
bill was prepar ( edby him, that fact should
have great weight with the legislative
statesman when they come to consider it.
The Senate, on _Thursday, passed final
ly an act to establish the iron industrial
schools . of eastern and western Pennsyl
vania ; also an act fixing the date of the
corifmencement of the terms of borough
and township o ffi cers, of the organization (
of borough councils aad of auditors' set-.
The most of the time of the session in
the House on Thtirstlay, was consumed
in considering and passing bills on see;
yud reading. Among those thus passed
was the bill of Sherwood, of Northdmber
land, for the reduction of the salaries of
state officials, which passed. second read
ing Without much discussion or opposi-
tion, as amended in committee. As the
all now stands the salaries of, the-prinek
pal officers are fixed about 25 per cent.
below the present salaries.
The indicapirts are that the bill will be
killed on final passage, Although Col. Da
vis, of Philadelphia, Chairman- of the
Committee of Ways and Means,' says ho
is in favor of passing it through the
-House and. remanding the question of .a
reduction to the Senate for final settle
Among the bills' reported, favorab)y•
from committees, in . the Senate, on Fri
day, were the following :
An act appropriating $6,000 to continue
the provisions of an act in regard to the
boundary monuments ()Li the line . between
Pennsylvania and New York. '
An act to prevent the appointment of
persons to assess the shales of bank
stock and to provido for. the assersment
thereof- and payment of taxes thereon,
intended to abolish the Oleo of bank as
. seSSOr.-
An act to create banking department.
A concurrent resoltition 'yes also re
ported and adopted, providing for the ap
pointment of a joint committee of t3enah - -
tors and members of ttie Botitio, to revise
and codify the tax laws cd` the sate, and
report by bill or bills such legislation as
will carry out the provisions of the new
Constitution on the subject of taxation:,
There was quite a lengthy discussion in
the Senate on Friday, on a motion made
by Mr. Schnatterly,'of Fayette, that the
act to secure to the operatives and labor
ers engaged in and about chat mines and
manufactories of iron and steel.the pay
nient.of their wages at regular and -sta
ted intervals, and in lawful money of the
United States, (reported negatively) be
placed on the calendar.
- During the debate Senator Davies spoke
against the bill and placing it on the cal
endar, saying, among other things, that
to enforce its provisions would be to take
from the people the inalienable right to
make cent mcz.
This is one of the bills upon which a
number of the buncombe speeches, be.
fore referred to, wilfbe made, and which,
should it become a law, never can be en
forced. The Senate, however, notwith
standing the fact that - this was the sec
ond time it had been reported from the
General Judiciary Committee with a neg
ative recommendation, ordered it to be
placed upon the calendar by a vote of ail
to 8, the Senator from Bradford being
among the eight.
A new bill, was introduced in the Sen
ate on by Mr. Grady, of Phil
adelphia, the getters up of which evident
ly desire to mike a raid ,on the State
Treasury. It is an act to extend the ben
efits of an act for therrelief .of J. Mowry
Moorhead to other bona fide holders for
value of bonds of the Milford and. Matta
moras railroad, upon the faith of the ap
propriation to that company, empower
ing the Auditor :General and other state
officers, to examine•and pay these claims.
The door was opened last winter by pass
ing a bill for the relief of-Moorhead, by
which ho got some 460,000, And now more
relief is asked for. If this kind of bills
continues to be''Passed by the Legislature
there will be no end to the Milford and
Mattomoras railrodd bonds, , and it would
be just as well to call a halt now, as at
any future time. The strong box of the
State is in no condition to meet such de
mends. '
A: resolution in reference to the par
charm of, copies ofTnrdon's Digest,- which
has been going back and forth between
the two Houses for several days past, was
finally disposed of in. the Senate on Fri
day. It' came over.from the House lit
that time, with a notice that that body
had refused to recede from an amend
ment which bad been made them, tow
Senate reslAiitiOn on the subject, to the
effect that two copies ghoul(' be purchased
for the use of the Senate and House, the
same to bichained to the Speaker? desks
in the two Houses. The House also nod:
tied-the Senate that • it bad appointed a
committee of conference on the subject.
When President pro ten Herr brought
the' matter before the Senate,' Sutter
Davies promptly moved that the further
considemtion of the subject be indefinite
ly postponed, which sensible motion was
unanimously agreed to, which should bo
the last of such foolishness. •
The most importaid item of business
transacted in the noise on Friday, was
the taking up and passing finally, on ma:

act entitled an act to equalize the taxa
tion of corporations and compudes, ap
proved March 20, 1877. •
