composed of women as well as Men, who
have devoted themselves for years to

parture from the old style Prohibitionists
-and seek for an amendment to the Con
stitution, whereby-the manufitcture and
sale of intoxicating liquor will be priki

awake bitter opposition from the liquor
men of the State, and combine iu its

A FEW FACTS FOR REFEIRESCE.
The people will do well to take
into account a few evident faett4,
among which are—that'it i, hard, to
`please a man detprrnined nut :tobe
pleased, and; that a • man' seeking a
"R9uarrel need never . go tar to find it.
eference to these facts may he use
ful to'all who may - now or hereafter
be interests in the rditieal . situation
in Pennsylvania.: There is • a ,very
"decided disposition to force the fight
and if possible to forestall the action
of the people. But singular as it r may
seem' this disposition . is not displayed
by the managers who are denounced
by the leaders of ale Molt of •l 81.
The parties appear to.have changed
places, and the tactics so loudly con
demned last I'l4ll are _already being
employed by the men who condemn
ed them. •
It is probably a fair statement to
say that the Republicans of Pennsyl
fania'are not yet prepared to enter
upon the campaign of 1882. • They
are' not•yet ready to select candidates.
Of thenupber of men named in (!on
neetiOn with_to'highest office to be
filled the people have not decided
upon any, and were they to be left
to their own deviceslt is quite possi
tte-that they might select some per
son nit yet tamed. It will be noted
however, that the fastidious gentle
men who propose to:- nominate a full
ticket in a few days do not propose
to leave to the people anything what
ever to do except to take the nomi
nations as their own. This is simply
doing in the name of reform exactly
What is complained of in the "bosses."
The charge is that the "bosses" meet
, and set up a ticket withotit reference
to the wishes _'of the masses of the
party. :Well, that:is the Very ,thing
these." heralds of. reform " propose
to do in a few days, • •
- The man who is conscious of the
rectitude of his own motives rrever
condescends to resort td the tsel,ics
which he condemns as vicious in
others. The essence of " boisism,"
as.we understand it is, that it fixes
upon Certain things to — btddne with
out consulting the people, and then
attempts to force the pedple tb do
those certain things. Action of this
kind, if wrong and to be condemned
in one is - equally wrong and repre
hensible in others. Only the insin
cere and unscrupulous see- any
difference. There is no diffeifnce.
There may, of course, be a Choice
among men as respects whom they
will allow= to set up tickets to be-vot
ed for; but if that - is the argument
what becomes of all this loud talk
about "vindicating" a principle?
It would be altogether better for men
who favor such reform to say at once
that they desire to vindicate their
choke : of "bosses."
There is time enough for the masses
of the Repuclican party to study
these phates of political warfare.•
They will flud It profitable. -May
will than be required tollay
the men to - rbe voted. for shall be tak•
en np without consultation with .
or whether they propose to
organize a convention bi the right
way and nominate men of their own
selection. It is for the people- to
determine for themselves. If they
permit a few men in Philadelphia, or
a few men in any other corner of the
State, to set .up a ticket they 13/1131,
forever after hold their peace. ,
Seldom, if ever, has a set-of gen
tlemen, elected to fill places of res.
poniibility and trust, retired there-
from at the end of their terms, pos-
sec-sing to a, greater degree Iher‘con

during- his term of office, his fitness
for the position whibh he has
and the wisdom , of- the - people in
placing - him therein. As servants
of the public they haie,at all times
been careful in the - transaction of the
business appertaining to' the several
offices—courteous and obliging to
all who have had. business in the of
fices to transact.l While Bradford
County has ever been fortunate in
the selection ofipersons to fill her
public offices, we hazard nothing
in saying that'never, in her ' whole
history asra county, have .those pa
sitlons been , more ably and more sat
isfactorify filled than during the past
three years. And we - still hazard
nothing in further saying, that, had
there not been a Constitutional bar
to a second term in twq ' of the offices
and :a positive declination on the
part of some of the officers to wept
a se-election, every one of them
would have been re-nominated al -%
most, withoutopposition,and re-elect
ed by larger majorities than had been
giVen - in years. Speaking of the gen
tlemen individually, our spicy little
cotemporary, the Daily Review, said
Flo truthfully—and so nearly what we
should write—of them, were we to
speak of them separately, in its issue
of Saturday last, that we transfer
the article to our columns entire :
"SHERIFF DEAN, , though quite
piominent and very popular in the
west was but little known outside of

years ago, but he now returns to his

in the county; but the most popular
man who has' ever filled the sheriff's

onorous and responsible duties of
the office as riot to unnecessarily op

he excels in those traits which make
a man justly popular with his fellows.
His heart is large and beats in sym
pathy with his less fortunate brethern

same cordiality as those epon whom
Toitune smiles. The duties of the

and pleasantly performed, leaving
no ground for fauittfinding on the

not be made. He goes out of office
with the confidence and best wishes
of all who have made his !acquain

since the organiz-ttion of the county,
and we may truthfully say the inter
ests of the taxpayers - have never
been more carefully guarded nor the
finances: more prudently managed.
It became necessary to make a loan
to raise money to erect the poor
house and it was largely due to Mr.
GRANT'S efforts that the bonds were
negotiated at a Very low rate of in
terest, in the face of str'ng tempta
tion to allow friends to take
them fits higher rate In this trans
action the county saved more than
his, salary. He superintended the
payments for the work on the potv,
house in person and aided the Com
missioners very greatly in the prose
cution of the work. He deserves
great credit for the practice inter-
est displayed in the securing to the
County a house for the poor which
will grow in favor as its
becomes better known to the public:
Among those whom coming genera
