A STIRRING APPEAL.
Address of the Republican State
To the;Electors of—Pennsylvania:
Ours is "a government of the peo
ple, by the people,
_and for the peo
ple "-of the people, since all author
ity springssrom them; by the people,
since their will,-whert expressed thro'
established voluntary anillegal forms,
should he respected and obeyed; for
the people, in the fact that whatever
is thus done should be done for their
welfare: Accepted maxims are .the Se.
They were given shape by s the spirit
of - our customs and laws and 'direct
expression by a martyred President
at a - time when they, had just been
sanctified by the beSt blood of the
There was an election last year,
and the result was confessed on all
sides to have been fairly readied. It
showed both an electoral andl'i pop
ular majority for a Republican Pres
ident and Vice President. Thelbullet
of an assassin has robbed the people
of their personal choice, and in
wend they have secured, by constitu
tional and acceptable methods his
distinguished colleague. Since that
election . events have crowded thick
and fast, but
,the on-looking, world
saw a Republic, in every - material
view, unshaken' by. c3lamity ; 'our
own people Saw, through the instru
mentalities of our laws and Constitu
tion, a faithful reflection of their will
in the more immediate change incl.
dent' to the death of their ; President,
and they had almost. permitted their
political vigilance to relax and take
an indifferently easy air, when it was
aroused by a partisan act on the , part
of the political organization- which
did not represent the people in the
struggle for governmental policy.
For the second time in our history
" a prize bad been drawn in the lot
tery of assassination" by a common
foe;; and, in both cases, that foe was
quick in the search for every cumula
tive profit. The Democratic party
did seek' a partiSan profit from the
murder of Lincoln, and unwarned by
that experience, in-its greed for pow
er, repeated. the attempt but a week
ago. Andrew Johnson's betrayal of
the idea that the legal expression of
the will of the people must , be re
spected was compensated - after a
struggle of many months, the recent
. a public trust by the
Democratic Senators was, so far as
we can now judge, partially met with
in two days. A bad purpose has been
defeated, and while the will of the
people has not been fully, guarded or
their policy guaranteed, the Republi
cans of the Senate hiive at least re
moved a glaring temptation to further
assassination, and for a time checked
the greed of ever-watchful enemies.
The saddest of all deaths, the legal
succession, --the theft of the second
place in the gift of the people, and
its partial restoration have transpired
with confusing speed ; yet not so
fast but that the reflecting man could
give some little thought to the fact
that if this Government of ours is to
be preserved "as of the people, by
people, and for the people," there
must be neither direct nor indirect
overtures to a partisan foe which has

never yet bowel' to the doctrine—
which war the friend of slavery, in a
great section the author of rebellion,,
in yet other sections its eider and
abettor—and in all times subsequent
to our greatest civil crisis the persis
tent foe of every advance toward a
more perfect fro,eom. With its in
herent belief in slavery, it opposed
emancipation, ciiil rights, equal suf
frage, the' planting of the school
house in the . places
,where it was
most needed; and instead of favoring
and fostering those who suffered for
their country, it has, by every insidi
ous agency, sought to reward those
who betrayed it. i This is not true of
all Democrats, hut kis true of the
leaders, into whose hands power= ill
be thrust by failure to hold Republi
can strongholds. , They have a ma
chinery which is:tohesivie in its-pow
er, which permits no freedom of
()Pinion, which never divides, and
which grinds on :4intil its own . force
breaks it. The power of selection
stilt rests with the Republicans of
Pennsylvania. Ohio has risen from
her grief to confirm her - selection by
majorities relatively greater than in
Presidential years.. lowa makes a
most intelligent Ichoice with unanim
ity. The Virgiinians, struggling to
rid themselves of a form of Bourbon
rule which the same wherever it
obtains, were, until recently, divided
as to policies; but in the rush of
events have thrown away every idea
of faction, and! are now ready to
place themselves in i the column of
progress. The Repoblicans of New
York, in natural solicitude for a dis
tinguished citizen called to the point
of danger, have buried from sight
everyidtviding issue, and now present .
an example of 1 harmony which has
been wisely imitated in ;nearly all
other States. There -is a nee:led
unity of watchfulness, Ito the ,end
that the present, and -at least the
near future of ourcourry may be
guarded from : possibl calamity.
Shall 'we, as -Pennsylva9ians, be less
dutiful ? When, in the past, sacri
fices were called for have we ever; in
either hatred, sullenness or despair,
stood off? A claim to patfiotism
but mocks the tennwh n it will not
sacrifice convenience ; c nifort, even
happiness and life; forte country's
meal. A profession of ealty to- ad
mittedly just political principles is
but a sham and a pretense wilco it
will not sacrifice somethihg to unity
and when it will not blend a personal
purpose into the one which moves
for the common good. When,public
dangers quick succeed each other,
when but a single life stands between
approved government and a revolu
tion in politics, there ought to be no
room for mere personalties, none for
the detraction of friends, none for
the creation of faction, and there
ough,t to be universal reprebation of
counsels which arc openly confessed
to be -"in the interest of
Good soldiers do not stop to dress
mere bruises when the battle is on,
nor do they march out of the line by
either flank at the beck of the Toe.
STAND BY THE PRESIDENT.
To admit that any considerable
number of Pennsylvanians will be
less solibitous .of the national gook]
than those of our neighboring States
is to belie our. past history. The
Administration of President Arthur
from its very beginning needs at the
least the support of all Republican
Stdtes, and of none more , than:that
which has proved' the Keystone to
RCpublicanism,' as she has to the
Union. That support can only be
extended through ballots cast for
General Bally, the standard-bearer
of the pity = a gallant soldier,
wounded while heading his troops,
ascending through high personal
merit from the bars of la Captain to
the stars of a General—now a mod
est. quiet citizen—not a politician,
not an officeholder—one who earns
his bread by the sweat of his brow,
yet far too good to oppose, and of all
men the last to be selected as the
victim of spites against others. There
was at least fairness in the hissing
and explosion of the shell which
struck him at Gaines' Mill ; there is
_generosity nor Manliness in
the attempt to crush him with mis
sies professedly aimed at others.
Our :National Administration -is
Republican in its make-up and char
acter;: we know it as such; the World
knows it as such. It can, therefore,
only find support in Republican ma
joritiei. We have no other method
of support ; the world - abroad .recog
niies nu other, and no persuasion_ of
secret enemies, of demagogues, or
any apoarent apathy of the open foe
should be permitted to lure us from
the ont direct object—support - of the
Natiotal Government and the ad
ministration thereof. Thi withheld
and clagrin and digaster will quickly
suceekd each other. The man who
can Ice persuaded to lose one
in the hope that he can more easily
win the neat does not live to see how
'false is his philosophy.
WI AT THE PARTY REPRESENTS.

lieve in the principles which have
mad'e our government what it is—
"of the .people, by the people, and
for the people." It represents ideas

" All the noble aspirations of my'
lamented predecessor which found
expression in his life, the measures
devised and suggested during his
brief administration to correct abuses
an promote the general welfare, to

of the Republician cause and ticket

tion, its Mends and enemies, and all
iptelligent on-lookers - will say Bo l and
ipne will more quickly gloat over
such a oidaukityithau the journals and
politicians who are now counseling
" The RepubliCan 'party is literal
enough for all. Its national deeds
and declarations are not forgotten ;
its latest , enunciation in this State
points . unequivocally to a reform in
a plank which received the warm
4pport of 251 representatives in
&Me Convention assembled ; while
tiat of the Democratic party plays
with dangerous recklessness on the
edges 'of communism. Must these
declarationi in 'representative con
vention be held less potent than thoSe
of `the . self-seeking, the irresponsible,
and the noisy on the rostrum ? Only
barbarous tribes wildly follow their
THINGS. TO BE REMEMBERED.
The statesmen of the century have
been members of the Republican par
ty. It has counted in its ranks
names which have become immortal,
and are so confessed of all the earth
—Lincoln, Seward, Chase, Sumner,
Garfield I—names which are nurtured
in our party's traditions even more
tenderly than in historic pages. It
is the party of
_reform, for it is pro
gressive and never looks backward ;
it is the party of liberty, and con
stantly seeks a more perfect freedom
True, some have wearied of its good
work.; somliTeve straggled in the
march of progress ; others have re
garded their bruises more than the
goal beyond.; some have even fallen
by the wayside, but the ea nest and
the native still march ona d gather
as they move.
You can on the Bth of November
next so shape your ballots, citizens
of Penniylvania, that they will prove
the voice of order, promoter of stable
governinentin the State and the Na,
.tion. If they are cast as the mere
waifs of passion, the double-edged
instruments. of faction, the world
may be justified in forming a different
opinion of our people—for their
chara6ter will at least seem to have
changed from the sturdy and stead
fast to that which is weak and vaci
lating. Let us remember, Pennsyl
vanians, that there is no form of
mental slavery more_ humiliating to
its victim - than that which yields
itself captive to every sensation.
:if is considered' important that
you should be fully informed con
cerning the manner in which the Re
publican party has managed the
finances of the Commonwealth since
1860—the &tit year,. that trust was
committed to it., For a period of
twenty years the Democrats have
only had charge Of the State Treas
ury three years, in - 1863 under W.
V. McGrath, and in 1878 and 1879
under A. C. Noyes. In 1861 the debt
of Pennsylvania was the largest owed
by any State in the Union,•and $3,-
000,000 was then necessarily added
to the enormous load to enable our
troops to march to the defense of the
nation's life. But the crushing load
has been manfully borne and honora
bly paid, until the debt, less available
securities in the Sinking Fund,pledg
ed to its redemption, is now one of
the smallest owed- by any State, in
debt. The total reduction since 1861
has been $19,033,420 84, and the pres
ent debt is $21,561,989.65, The Sink
ing Fund amounts 'to $8,000,000,
making • the net debt $13,561,989.05.'
The following table will show the
reduction which has been made from
,year to year during the period of
Republican control of the Treasury,

LESSENING THE PEOPLE / 8 BURDEN
When the. last Democratic State
Treasurer handed over the office to
the Republican, incumbent a very
large sum of warrants were unpaid
and constituted a floating debt. This
has all been paid, and at this moment
ample funds are held to meet 'every
legal demand on the State.
While thus reducing the debt the
Republilan party .has steadily
sene'cl the burdens of the people. In
1866 the flour-mill tax on real estate,
producing an annual revenue of $l,-
000,000, was taken off. In 1871 the
lax on offices, trades and professions,
amounting annually to $75,000, was ,
repealed. In 1873 the taxes on horses
and cattle, producing a revenue of
$50,000 a year, was taken off, and in
1879 the tax on coal, yielding annu
ally. $700,000, was repealed. Thus
$15,000,000 of tax on the homes of
our people has been remitted in 'as
many. years. Relief to working-men,
amounting to $750,000, has been ex
tended by abolishing the tax on oc
cupation;, $350,000 has been remitted,
chiefly to our tarmers, by repealing
the law taxing live stock, and
000. has been taken off our great coal
industry for the vast year. But this
creditable record does not atop here.
While, the debt was • disappearing,
notwithstanding reduced taxation,
amounting to $16,800,000, the State '
supported her noble charities with a
generous hand and gave a lavish aid
to the Centennial Exhibition, as will
be seen from the annexed table:

A CRITICISM OF TAE REFORMERS.
Seventeen years,ago a few profess

State had shown their capacity for
leadership by reducing the party to
a - minority. , The Legislature was
lost'and McGrath, Dentoorat, became
,BEG 18888 OP DZWONOIATIONISON ANT QU&BTZIL
State Treasurer. Abkileaders came
forward in that crisis and the Repuh-
Henna immediately gained their su
premacy. These rejected leaders,
unable longer to plunder. the Stlitte
and rain the Republican party, at
once became " Reformers." They
commenced an attack upon the finan.
dal management of our party, it be
ing the subject least understood by
the averagwvotei: For half a gen
eration these "Reformers" have kept
the State rinaing with denurciations
of a work which outside our borders
is looked on and commended with
universal praise. The 'Republican'
voter has been told'each year that
our State was systematically and
constantly robbed, and that this un
ending robbery was , performed by the
State Treasurers the results of whose
,work is a part of , this address. Epch
year official fitets have been present-,
ed disproving theise charges, but tho
".Reformers" keep up the assault, as
though the Republicans of this State
were without the advantages ofrcomi
mon schools and common sense. The
original projectors of this movement
have long sines " reformed" them
selves into the - Democratic party;
but the "Reformer" of today exhib
its the same lofty contempt of facti
officially promulgated each year by
the fiscal °Munro( the State Gov

The Champion Thief.
The Vienna correspondent of the
London. Globe says : "Last week a
certain Hungarian countess well
known for her riches and beauty (the
same spirited lady who last year sec
onded her brother in a duel) graced
with her presence the performance
at the Aresa, or summer theatre. 'On
one of her fair fingers my lady wore
two splendid diamond rings exactly
like each other. During an entr'acte
there prsented himself in her box a
big fellow in gorgeous nvery-40x
feet of the finest flunkey imaginable.
Quoth he, in 'finest Hungarian, "My
mistress, Princess P----, has sent
me to beg of yoil:r ladyship the loan
of one of your rings for five minutes.
Her highness has observed them
from her box opposite, and is very
Anxious to examine one more. close
ly, as she wishes to have made after
the pattern." 'Without an instant's
hesitation the countess handed a ring
to "Jeames," 'who bowed with re
spectful dignity and retired. The
performance' over, the two great la
dieri met 'on the 'staircase, and -the
countess begged her friend to keep
the ring at her convenience. " What
ring, my dear?" Denouement! Tab
leaus !The; "powdered menial"
was no flunkey at all, but a Ithief,
and the ring was gone. The police
were informed of the impudent trick.
Justice ' seemed to have overtaken
the culprit in a few strides, for next
morning the countess, whilst still en
robeLde-chambre, received a letter in.
forming her that the thief had ,been
caught and the ring found on his
person. "Only," . added the note,
"the man stoutly denies .the charge
an declares the ring to be his own.
To clear up all doubts, pray come at
once to the police station or send
the. dupliCate ring by bearer." To
draw the second ring from the finger
and intrust it. to the messenger—a
fine fellow in full police uniform—to

the glorious news, WB4 the work of a
moment. Only when my lady an
hour later betook herself radiant to
the police station to recover her jew

Struggle With a Porter-House
" This is the porter-house, is it?"
asked the sr.d passenger, sitting at
the corner table in the restaurant.
" Yes sir," said the waiter, with
the weary air of a man who was tired
of having to tell the same lie a thous
and times a day, porter-house steak,
sir; same as you ordered, sir."
"Do you cut porter-house steak
from between the horns this year?"
asked the sad passenger, with the in
tonation of a man who wanted to
". Sir ?" said the waiter.
"It-seemed to be a trifle tenderer
last year," the sad passenger went, on,
with the air of l a tired mpt indulging
in pleasanfrethinisceneo of the past;
" but, I remember now, it was cut a

The waiter looked puzzled. " Why,

"Possible?" said the sad passen

"-What I" he 'said ; "the customers

Boiroviing a Quarter.-
Three pity boys were on their way
home from school, and, as there were
at least two hours before dark (and
before supper:time), they were quite
ready to stop' and look at anything
from a circus to a dog-fight.
" Oh, boys, just look !" cried . Char
" What? Where ?" exclaimed his
companions. They were now in, front
of a secondha n d bookstore; and point.,
ing`to a thick green covered volume
in one window, Charlie exclainW :
"Why, the 's the 'Arabian Nights'
—real good, of torn a bk marked
' only twentykive cents!' Full of
pictures, too 11'
" Oh!" said, or rather sighed, Ed
gar Denny and Will Farnham.,
Three -faces were pressed close to
the bookseller's window, three pairs
of eager eyes gloated over the, treas
ure ; for to what ten or twel4Srear
old boy isnot the " Arabian Nights"
a treasure ?
Neither Edgar, Charlie or Will
had ever read the wonderful boillik ;
but one of the latter's cousinsJiad
done so, and had retailed one or Ewo
of the stories to Will, and he in turn
had repeated them to.his two friends.
And to think that all this—roc's
eggs, oue-eyed caliphs, sparkling jew
els genii, palaces—might be obtain
ed for twenty-five cents.
" I say, remarked Edgar, doubtful
ly, "has any fellow got a quarter."
No fellow had ; what was worse,
the united wealth of the three " fel
lows" amounted to just seven cents.
"Perhaps, if I tell papa about it,
he'll buy it for us," suggested Charlie..
" Pshaw Somebody'll snap it up
before you can get to your father's
store. A barg ain like that , isn't to
be . had everyd ay."
"If Torn Baker sees it he'll buy it,
sure pop: He's always got money,"
sighed Edgar. C.lf he hadfili been
kept in, like as not' hekt have - bimght
it before this." , •
Suddenly Will's face brightened.
Putting. his hand in his pocket he
dremi out a dollar bill and announced
his intention 'of buying the book.
"A dollar,! Where did ydu get
it?" asked Cbarlie, in amazement.
"'Tim% thine; it's Aunt Mary's.
She gave me a dollar this boon, and
a l sked :me to pay fifty cents to Mr.
Jennison, the apothecary, you know.
She will,not be home until late this
eye ling, and in the meantime I can
run, up to grandma's and get a quar
ter she owes me for some eggs I sold
her—my little bantam's eggs. Aunt
Mary will not mind if I do borrow a
quarter from her for a little while."
So the treailry of marvels passed
into Will.Earnham's_ possession, and
the - three happy toys made immedi
ate arrangements for reading it aloud,
turn and turn about.' At every street
corner they paused to look at "just
one.more picture," and. it was with a
violent effort that Will tore himself
away to "run up to grandma's."
"But you boys may look at it
while I ank-gone, - if you'll ,bfing it to,
me before supper," he remarked gra
ciously as he left them. ;
Unfortunately he got tOhts grand
mother's just a little while after she
had left home for a two days' visit to
one of her sons; so the little ban
tam's eggs could not be paid for
" Oh, well, it can't be helped now,"
Will said to himself. " Grandma is
certain to give me the quarter in a day
.or two, and I'll ter Aunt Mary about
it as soon as She comes ja"
When he got home his Mother told
hinkto put his aunt's ehttnge on her
bureau, and then run to-the grocer's
and get some sugar i for tea. After
supper he betook himself to his new
book, and sOm was e. thousand years
and a thousrd miles away. He dim.
ly heard some one ask him about
Aunt Mary's money, and he gave a
dreamy answer;-and his father , . bad
to speak to him three times llelore he
realized it was-bed time. -
Of course he for a moment forgot
all about the borrowed quarter. Con
scious of " good intentions," he felt
tio anxiety about the matter.
4 .lsn't it too bad, Will, that our
fiCw cook, who makes such nice cake
and pie, is not ! . hpnest, and mamma
has got to discharge her?" said his
sister Jennie, the next morning.
" Ye,3, it is a pity. 'What has she

says, it shows that her principles are

"That is whero I saw iti," said
Mrs. Farnhain. ,
"Then it was lucky for your purse,
Aunt Mary," said Will with a laugh,
" that I borrowed. a quarter of .you,
or you would be fifty cents poorer
instead of twenty-five.
"What do you mean ? I lent you
no quarter!" was the surprised reply.
• but I borrowed it,"
"Did you lay but one quarter on
the bureau ?" asked. his mother.
Yea, ma'am. I borrowed the
other." , .
• "Oh ! exclaimed Mrs. - Farnham,

his father, a little sternly.
And Will told the whole story,
adding, "You see, Aunt Mary, I
didn't know that grandma was going

money at once:"
." Oh! it is all right. Yon are wel

There is but one step, one very little

When Women are Most Attrac-
An interesting paper entitled
" When Women Grow Mrs.
Blake has brought facts to show that
the - fascinating power of the sex is
oftentimes rekained much longer than
is generally as4ned. She tells us
of Aspasia, who between the ages of
30-and 50 -was the strongest intel
lectual force in Athens ; of Cleopatra,
whose golden decade for power and
beauty was between 30 and 40; of
Livia, who was not far from 00 when
she gained the heart of Octivius ; of
Anne of Russia, - who at 38 was
thought to be the most beautiful
queen in Europe ; of Catheiine IL of
Russia, who even at the silver decade
was both beautiful and imposing ; of
Mademoiselle. Mars the actress,
whose beauty increased with years, .
and culminated between 30 and 45;
of Madame Becamier, who, between
25 and -40, and' even, later the
reigning beauty of Europe; Of Nion
de' Enclos, whose own son—brought
up without knowledge of his parent
age—fell passionately tri love with -
her when she was at the_age of 37,
and who on her 60th birthday re
ceived an adorer young epough to be
her grandson. These facts, the rep-
Tesentatives :Of many others, establish
that the golden decade offaacination
is the same as the golden decade Of
thought ; that woman is most attrae
tive to, and most influential , over
man at that period when both man
and woman are nearest the maximum
of their cerebral force. The voice of
our great prima donnas is at its very
bost between .27,and 36 ; but some
retain, in a degree, its strength and
sweetness even in its ' silver_ decade:
The voice is an index of the body in
all its functions, but the decay of
other functions is not so readily
The. Printer's Cfriutar makes the
following- sensible suggestion, con
cerning that impamt, institution,
the local newspaper : A large por
tion of the people-do nothing to sup
port their local papers, •yet reap the
benefit every day of- the editor's
work. A man will say, "Advertising
does eat pny in business; I have to
keep men on the road, and get my
customers by going after them." And
yet the fact is that the town iliWhich
he does business Would be unknown, ,
the railroad over which. he ships his
goods would be unheard-of if it were
not for the newspaper, which he says
does him no good.
The local paper is otadvantage to
every man- in the community, and
when a man 'mimics to - contribute to
the • support of the paper on - the
ground that it- ." does him no good,"
he might just as well refuse -to-pay
his taxes for the support of thecourts
and the police force, on the ground
that-he never breaks the law and
does not, need any ofiltiers. There
are men who believe themselves to
be honest and pious; who are doing
business in every community, and
every day appropriating to their own
use the fruits of other men's labor by
reaping benefit of the newspaper
Without contributing a cent to its
support,-and yet they would be terri
bly shocked if they should be charg
ed with stealing wood from their
neighbors. But the principle is just'
the same, the only difference being;
that in one case the law can reach
'them, and in ,the other it cannot but,.
morally, it is , just as dishonest to,
steal- the fruits of your neighbor's
enterprise as to steal his fuel or
chickens.. Too much credit cannot
be given the local paper for the work
it has done and is still. doing for the
benefit of this country.
