Recublican State Ticket.
r‘A man , who from his youth up,
has fought the battles of Republican
ism in a o'o.oll where no hope of
success coild add vigor and zeal to
the contest, and with no reward save
the consciousness of having served
the cause he loved. A man who has
attested his love of liberty and law,
by service on the field of glory and
of blood, who won his promotion in
the glorious •Pennsylvania Reserves,
from Captain to Brigadier, by meri
torious service on the field. A man
who stood in the' red hell of battle at
Drain.syjile., on the Peninsula, at
Gaines — Mill, South Mountain, Antie
tam, Fredericksburg and the Wilder
ness, and who bore witness with his
blood that he loved his country well.
He bears upon his person the rough
beads_ left by the cruel cannon balls,
and will carry to his grave the evi
dence of Lis patriotism and courage.
He is able and worthy, to lead Repub
licans to Victory as he led his regi
ment to war. (Spada of Attorney

to vote. State and county tax must have
been paid within two years. Every qual

for the neglect of which the reason should

is worthy of commendation.
Tqz Star mute cases came up 'by ar

for the defence being present. Mr. Roe:
ERT G. I?OEESOLL declined to go on at
once unless the argument could be closed
immediately, as he desired to be present
throughout the whcle dikussion. The
matter was then field over for two weeks,
the time for the opening of \ the argument
to be then fixed.
GEN. Batt.r has the respect, the confi
dence and the enthusiastic support of his
own party in Fayette county.' Re will
poll every Republican vote, and , secure a
very large support from the Democracy.
In contrast With this ORANGE NOBLE'S
position in Erie county shows the , differ
ence in the standing of the men at home.
The Democratic party of Erie is in revolt
against Mr. NOBLE," and in the city of
Erie bewill lose fully a third of its _vote,
and not get a single Republican vote.
This - difference in the standing of men, at
home, speaks volumes.
ONE of our exchanges contained these
words in a recent issn-, and there is a
world of truth in them : " Whoever votes
the Democratic ticket,' in part, or entire,
will, to the extent that his vote is Demo
cratic, Note to condemn the administration
of the' late General GARFIP.LD, but wrbo
evervotes the Republican ticket, from top
to bottom, will do all he can to approve
of that administration, and place himself
in the ranks of those who desire.sinc,erely
and consistently to honor the memory of
the meat and gOod President. No man
can be on all sides of such an issue."
THE so-called "Atalsiarts" were beaten
in the New York State ConventiOn, but,
it must be said to their credit that they
indulged in no unseemly complaints and
whining over their defeat; . —ade no mean
threats to take vengeance against the par
ty organization; but-like honest men and
true Republicans submitted to the will of
the majority, and promptly joined in giv
ing the nominees a good send-off and in
letting it be understood that tbeii ener
gies should be given for the success of the
party. This is in striking contrast-with
the conduct of- small, egotistical politi
cians who have no higher aim in politics
than the gratification of their . personal
A'good deal of bitterness has been
engendered in the prosecution of the
campaign fur State Treasurer within
the last ten days. The peculiarity
of the case is that the friends of Gen.
BAILY have refrained from attacking
Mr. WOLFE, or, indeed, from employ.;
ing inuendo against. him. The bit
terness, which all must have noticed,
has been engendered by the violence
of Mr. Womz and his friends. Never
before in this State has a canvass for
a comparatively unimporAnt posi
tion been the occasion for]_ so much
violence. Mr. Wor.z has fallen into
bad company, and is demonstrating
bow evil communications corrupt
good manners. The man who goes
forth as the champion of a good
cause, having no ulterior motives
merely selfish, can afford to discuss
whatever may be in controversy with
decency and decorum.
This, we regret to say, Mr. WOLFS
has failed to do. He has not dis
dained to copy the manners and the
methods of the party which is most
interested in his progress, and judged
by his utterances in fact, but more
by his manners and his methods, tie
might be filling out a programine
provided by Mr. TILDEN or Mr. BAR
NUM. Of late he has dealt in charges
affecting the official and personal in
tegrity of Gov. 'HOYT. To these
charges the Governor has put in a
square,' specific and circumstantial
denial. After this there was but one
thing for' an honest and honorable
man to do, and that thing was to
bring forward the proofs upon which
the charges were founded, supposing
the proofs to exist. In fair consid
eration for' the accuser, we must ati
sume that he was possessed of the
proofs before he formulated the
it is now more than a week since
Gov. Hurt denounced the charges as
fa'se in every particular so far as
they concerned himself. The only
reply Mr. WOLFE has made to the
Governor's denial is, that of course
the Governor would not admit his
guilt. If innocent, he ought not to
permit such charges to g 6 without
full denial. If guilty, his denial is a
challenge to his accuser to produce
his proofs. But a week or more has
elapsed and Mr. WOLFE has not at.
tempted to produce his. proofs. On
the contrary, he has publicly admit
ted that he had no proofs, beuanse it
is difficult ,- to get proofs against
‘ 4 offending &tosses." This reply is
not worthy Of an honorable man,
who, in charging a high officer with
stealing, himself becomes guilty of a
theft much more' to be denounced
than the theft of money. The thief
of reputation is by all ()Odd the most
dangerous and despicable of the rob
ber tribe. No man has a right to
publicly charge a crime upon another
unless he intends to substantiate it
by proofs.
Men who have reputation to lose
cannot afford to be- iuilenof the
reputations of cdiens. And men wtm
have reinitatiorm to lois will be slow
to frame an excise for Mt Wows.
His : only :justification - lies &Abe
truth of Ida dunes, Mid =theirt's's!'
an only be determined- by such
proofs as are recognized ccurts.
It such an - accuser thinks he has
raised a question of veracity simply,
he will probably live long enough ' to
find out:his mistake. There can be
no question of veracity when the
subject of controversy is a grave
crime. Mr. Vous must produce
his proofs if he has any, and if be
has none, and has been betrayed into
error by false information, as a man
of honor he-must retract; Failing to
produce his proofs or , to' retract, be
will be assigned to his place among
public slanderers:
To the , self-respecting public we
have 'to - say, that a cause which can
not be; advocated -without-mud-fling
ingis not fit to, be advocated at all.
But a cause that requires such advo•
cacy cannot, we think, long retain
such' men as we have reckoned Mr.
Woks% among.- His candidacy was
a serious blunder. His consorting
with political rakes has not improved
his manners. His appearance upon
the stage as a maker of loose charges
against public men is, hlwever, the
legitimate outcome of his associa
tions. No matter how pure a man
may be, he cannot touch pitch and
escape defilement. Mr. Worms has
not proved an exception to the old
rule. L

The Ohio has no doubt
increased Gen. BALLY'S chances while
it has; decreafed Mr. NonLE's. Bat
it will not do to depend upon that.
The success of the' Republicans in
this State is as important as ever.
`Ube immediate stake is party unity,
but the great thing to be considered
is the, absolute necessity of Republi
can ascendancy in every Republican
State. The Democrats have been
defeated in Ohio, bat they had noth
ing to lose. The Democrats have
nothing to
in this State 'but
everything to gain. As they were
not permitted to., gain anything in
Ohio so they should not be permitted
to gain anything in Pennsylvania.
While we -do not, underrate the
strength of the opposition—and we
include all opposition to the 'Repub
lican ticket—it is quite i certain that
it has lost ground within the last ten
days.. If we are not a unit so the
Democrats are not a unit. : They
have divisions to deplore as well as
the Republicans. They have sought
to repair the loss of - unity in their
own .party by fomenting strife in our
own. Their chief dependence is on
Republican quarrel. Hence we see
every Democratic newspaper urging
Mr. WOLFS , and his managers to
*make a strong fight. The only way
to counteract such disentegrating
fluences is for Republicans to make a
strong fight for Gen. BAILY. He is
a roan who makes a good impression
wherever he goes. He assails the
reputation of no man. "He does not
advertise his own honesty. It is not
necessary. At home, despite lying
- despatches,. he is a: popular man.
His competitor, Oftenor. NOBLE, is
encountering determined opposition
at hole. We do not know upon
what this opposition is based, nor
does it matter. Some of the most
influential Democratic leaders in the
northwest are actively opposing his
election.: He was nominated solely
because he was rich, and presumably
willing to put a barrel on top for pio
litical purposes.
It has come to this, then, that the
Democrats no longer put -any but
rich men in nomination, or men who
have rich men as their sponsors.
This sort of thing begsn in 1874
when Mr. Trr.DEN successfully bid
for the nomination at St. Louis. In
1880 rich men came fotward and de
clare& themselves ready to funk&
thousands if the Democrats would
nominate!Gen. HANCOCK. In Ohio,
the .present year, the Democrats's&
vertised for proposals for the nomi
piition for Governor. Mr. BOOK
vireurzettiaviig bid highest, was so.
cepted. He is a rich man and was
willing to spend his money freely.
In neither of these cases did money
supply the lack of popular confidence
in the Democratic party. It is now
the duty of the people of Pennsylva
nia to idminister another rebuke to
the party which hawks its ;nomina
tions as Jt huckster hawks his wares
along thp streets. They cannot afford
to have it said that Mr. Nons's'bar
rel is more patent in its influer.ce on
popular elections than their convie,
Lions. They must elect Gen. BAILY
in seltdefence. -
Gsratnst BAAT, the Republican can
didate for State Treasurer, says the Har
risburg Telegraph, is befoie the ople
on his own merits as a man, and before
his. party on his deservingi as a Republi
can and a patriot. He is ready to be
challenged on either of these anywhere,
in any. fair manner and by any gentleman.
As a man he stands before his fellow-citi
zens with as fair a reputation for ability
and integrity . as any candidate for the
same office ever went before the people
for theirsitfrages. He never betrayed
trust of air" kind. What he is, he is, as
open as the day akd as firm as the rocks.
In his political, iness, social and per
sonal relations, his character is without a
blemish. No man denies him the quali
ties demanded to fill the cam for which
he has been nominated. His - service to
his country is his least deserving, even
though that service was rendered . at the
peril of his life. While this ierVice corn
mended him to his party, the Wait which
now attlacts public confidence for him is
his solid character ass man; his sterling
qualities in business ; his unimpeachable
integrity, and his entirely correct busi
nese habits. It is on this character . which

In a recent interview with a reporter of

charged that I was instructed for BLAINE

anybody can tell you at home. Judge
Ewiso and I had a square fight on the
BLAINR and GRANT question, just like
this fight I am now having with Gasses

General BALLY is a man of strong and
honest oonvictkurs, and did not shrirk
from expressing them either at home or
at Chicago. But when beaten fairly he
was for GmurrEr4 and thus -gave , an ex-

.j THE xeduction of the Nation's debt,
within the': past eleven years, is - thil most
wonderful record in political sagacity and
ilnanciering Contained on the pages of the
World's history. The total debt, less
cash in- the Tram , has has been decreased
from 4%381,103,i to 41 4 816,83%567;
the annual in j rest changed from
$116,784,960, to # ,500,000 ; the average
rate per cent.

8.8 ; the debt, ' r capita, $6O 48 to
$B4; the annual '
' interest per capiti from
$3 08 to $1 24. lt must be borne in
mind that this work has all been done
under the direction, of the Republican
party by` Republican administrations and
statesmen. It is tho party that is - now
being arraigned for the same policy of
government in Pennsylvania, where, in
proportion to the debt in existence and
the revenues on hand, the reduction ,of
debt and interest were nearly as great.
No administration in the history of the
United States, or of the world, ever suc
ceeded in like results of tiMumiering, in
the lame length of time. And the Re
publican party can well afford to stand on
this record. ,o

Friday, Cnanuts J. GurrEan was for-
Cially arraigned for the murder of Presi

not guilty.' , Mr. Eicovuzz, for the de
fense, submitted two afildavits, one made
by himself and one by the prisoner. The
latter prayathe Court to provide for the
expenses of the witnesses to be summoned
for the defense; the former cites the two
points relied upon, namely, that the pris
oner is insane, and, further that the
wound was not necessarily mortal, and
was not the cause of President GAR,

affidavits, Mr. Scovuzz stated that while
Mr. Mamma could not take an active
part in the defence, be would argue the
question of jurisdiction if it was raised.

Iv ORANGE NOBLE &tom% get out of

&tillable. ; The Democratio Conven

Os ever held by the party. The tempo
rary and permanent charmer' were cleat

nesday morning, the 12th . inst. Aged 62.
For several years past it has been evi
dent that was considerable dissatis
faction and discontent among the Repub
licans in this State, caused by the political
management and methods of their party
leaders, sometimes called "the Cameron
ring ", and sometimes " the machine."
The leaders were well aware of this, but
instead of endeavoring to conciliate the
disaffected and allay their discontent by
changing their methods, they have chosen
to imitate the Egyptian taskmaster when
the Israelites complained of their oppres
sions, and have ground us still harder and
made our burden's more grievous to bear.
Mr. Davies was undoubtedly the choice
of a large nukjority.of the masses in the
Republican party for Treasurer, and until
a short time before the meeting of to
State Convention it looked as if he would
be nominated without opposition and
elected by. a full party vote. There were
strong reasons why the bosses should have
accepted Mr. Davies, not as.their choice,
but as an available' candidate who could
have united the whole party. Mr. Davies,
though not one of Senator Cameron's ser
vile retainers, had always been on friendly
terms with him personally, and had en
deavored on all proper occasions to sue
tarn his leadership when his leadership
was right. But when Senator Cameron,
like all narrow-minded men who have by
accident obtained on exalted position, not
wishing to have his Senatorial dignity
eclipsed and overshadowed by a man of
greater talents and national reputation
like Grow, tried to cram down Mr. Da
vies' throat for United Statee Senator a
'man named Oliver, said to blows in his
iron-works—a man without a lay or ex
perience in legislation, and intterly
known to the people—Mr. Davies natur
ally objected and refused to avrallow. In
doing so he committed the unpardnnable
sin. A corporation his no soul, and a
machine has no tolezation. A mau might
steal a sheep and be forgiven, but to re--
list the machine is treason. Mr. Davies
was giant— aside and Gen. Bally was
nomi4ted, not because they loved him,
but to punish ;Mr. Davies for his insubor
dination. There is not a particle of evi-•
denee that any unlawful or forbidden
means were inisd to affect his oomication.

that this faction of Independents, who
profess to be controlled by priociple and
claim to be parer than other folks, bave
no compmetions about striking down an
honest soldier who has shed his blood for
his countxy! pen. Bally is not a man
after their own 'hearts, and they would
probably as lief have him defeated as
elected, so that the blame could be laid
at the door of the Independents. Ills"de
feat would furnish them the excuse they
will want for bolting the party nomina
tions just as soon as they cannot control
the nominating conventions. Next year,
if the Independents are active, and by
their conduct deserve to, they will control
the Republican party in this State.
!could it be wise for any of them to 'set
an example of bolting this fall ?
If it is s christian duty to vote against
batl men, is it not a sin to vote against
10:x4,ones, especially when they are fairly
nominated by our own party l It would
be foolish to burn the barn id order to
drive off the rats that infest it, and there
is no need of destroying the Republichn
party in order to get rid of corrupt party
leaders. A year ago M i meo° Conkling was
the Head Center and Grand Dictator of
the .party in the State of New York; and
the Great Mogul himself was never more
despotic and unforgiving. Tolley, tho'
alive, he is deader, so far as political in
fluence is concerned, than the late Presi
dent Garfield, and the Independents have
full control. Reptiblican, friends. don't
let hatted of the machine influence your
judgments. Gen. Baily is a true man,
and naturally belongs with us and not
,with the machine. •

Train eight on tile Lehigh Valley
Railroad, due in this city at - 5:15
Sunday morning, was nearly twelve

no lives were lost. It hapPened at

Galteaa's Arraignment.
WomustaxoN, Oct. 14.—There was,
a very large crowd in the criminal
court Tema this morning, in antici
pation of Gaiteatt's arraignment, and
intense interest was displayed. No
unusual police force was about the
court room, although a large number . ,
of detectives were present.
At 11:15 Counsellor Scoville en
tered, and immediately afterward the
door of the witness ro c = opened , and
thence emerged three officers having
between them the bowed and cower
ing figure of Gilliam.- The: latter
was seated next bis counsel and the
handcuffs unlocked.. He looked bro
ken in health and uncared for in per
son, with bait .closeixcropped, dark
clothes rusty and shabby, and his
whole person presented a miserably
neglected appearance.. He stood up
in a languid manner during the read
ing of the indictment, with eyes half
closed and a look of sickly . indiffer
ence. He did not manifest the slight
est interest in the scene, and but for
an occasional slight movement might
have.been suppo,sed to be asleep.
After the reading of the indictment
the clerk said, "What say you to this
indictment ; guilty or not guilty ?"
The prisoner, instead of responding,
fumbled in his vest pocket and pro
duced a soiled and crumpled scrap
of paper. The__District Attorney said,
imperatively : " Enter your plea of
guilty or not guilty." The prisoner
chid': "I enter a plea of not guilty,
and desire to make a statement."
The Court said he must make it at .
some more appropriate time. The
prisoner sat down. Mr. Scoville then
read an affidavit of the prisoner, say
ing he had no money or property,
and praying the Government to bear
his share of expenses of the trial.
He then read a second one, saying
the defense will consist of two points
—first, insanity ; and second, that
the wound inflicted was not necessa
rily mortal. It also contains a list
of witnesses, and avers that the
brother of the defendant's father was
insane and died in a lunatic a.'syluniT
that his cousin, the daughter of an
other sister of the prisoner's fathec,
is insane and now confined in d luna
tic asylum; that the prisoner's father
was a monomaniac on religious sub
jects, and that he ca'n prove the pri
soner's actual insanity upon several
occasions.. It also gives the names
of the doctors, amongst them Wm.
A. Hammond, by whom he expects
to prove that President Garfield died
by malpractice on the part of the
physicians in charge.

Nzw Yohz, Oct. 13.—The Tele

morning Inspector Mallon called at
the hotel and sent word up to Par,
nell, who was still in bed, that . he
would like to see him. Parnell sent
word that he would be happy to see
the inspector as soon as he was dress
ed. Soon after he sent for Mallon
who, with detective Sheridan went
up stairs. Parnell met him pleasant,.
ly and asked, " Do you intend to ar
rest me ?" "Yes," replied Mallon,
band him the warrant, still wet with
Forster's signature. Parnell glanced
over the wariant and said, "All
right." He walked down stairs with
the police. A cab *as waiting and
the three men entered it. "Kilmain
ham prison," cried Mallon to the
driver, and they drove off. - Besides
the cab there were four other police
in-citizens' clothing in another car
riage. At Kilmainham° Parnell was
at once assigned to a cell. There
was no demonstration, as none knew
about the arrest beyond the parties
