Towanda, Pa., Feb. 2, 1882
The REPORTER establishment hav
ing within the past few days been
sold, with this issue of the paper the
connection with it- of the undersigned
'as its Managing editor, will cease.
It has grown to be a custom, that on
retiring from ,the position of editor
of a newspator, for the person so
retiring to indulge in remarks, more_
or less extended, in a review of the
history of such paper's past. This
custom I shalH-efrain from following,
save to avery limited extent.
Those who have been patrons and
readers-of the REPORTER !luring the
nearly forty-two years of its exis
tence,—and there are not a few such
—or those who have perused its col
umns for a less period, know best
whether its weekly visit& to them
have brought pleasure, or otherwise.
They are likewise the best judges as
to whether. it has been a fLarless
champion of the' principles it pro
frF4ed and the causes it-espoused—
a denouncer of Wrong, a defender of
So far as it is concerned,
that which has been written, has
• been . written. That which might be,
i written now could not—at least,
ought not—alter the 'verdict which
This community alone can render as
`.to whether its course has been. such
'as to deserve cominendation or oth
erwise. Whether it has been an cle
ment of 4 - strength in develOping,
building up, and maintaining the in
terests oT ,- the comunity in which it
ha&and lived gri n ; or, whether, on
the-other band,. has been a source
of weakness and a stumbling block
in the path of_Progress. If what the
- many have said, and say. now, is a
. fair index of public opinion of what
it has been in the past, and is at
present. then the verdict in favor of
the REPORTER'S past conduct, is Fuck!
an one as those Who have so long
owned and controlled its coluMns
may be justly proud.
Three - years ago, :this present
-month, the undersigned became asso
ciated:with the late - editor and pro
- one of the editors of the paper.. The
establishment Cad been leased for a
number of .years, and.,had just eon*
again under Mr. G6ODIitICII'S control.
As to the condition of its affair
then, it is unnecessary at this time
to speak. Suffice it to say, its rela
tions with the public were not such
as to bring „pleasure or "profit to its
owner. As• Mu GOODRICH was 'the
i;ccupant of - a go - vernment position
at Philadelphia, and necessarily
much of the tithe a resident of that .
city, he could 'not, of course, give the
paper his personal supervision, and
as a matter of necessity, the immedi
ate charge of conducting it fell upon
the associate editor. -Mr. Goonutcn,
as is well known to the readers of
the REPORTER, was not only a clear,
lOgical writer; but he was a versatile
one;as well: It is not . wondered
at, then, that. under his editorship
the paper rapidlYrepined
a the stand
ing that it had lost. But few days
beyond one•year ago, Mr. GOODRICH
suddenly sickened= and died. It is.
unnecessary to say that his loss to
the REPORTER was irreparable. His
heirs were so situated that for them
to COnVlLue_the. pub Nation of the
paper, for any length of time, was
deemed - unwise; and the office was
offered for sale; but not until . Satur-
day last was the property disposed

, past three years has been one of the
_ publishers of the paper, and Mr.
'lowan') F. MARSH, of Wellsboro.
who will n't.xt week assume editorial
charge and direction of the paper,
becoming the purchasers. Since Mr.
Goonnictes' death the undersigned
has been charged with the conduct
of. the paper, and to the best of his
ability has endeavored to keep it up
to the high standard it attained un
der Mr. Goonnicn's editorship. Ilow

Most exalted idea of the. Reformers of
Philadelphia, judging from the following:
"The Phil.. delphia Reformers don't think
Mr. James Dobson, the carpet manufac
turer of Manayouk, quite worthy the
high honor• of a seat in •the city cOuncils.
He• is good enough in himself, hut then
he is the Republican nominee. These
people are a little hard to, please. When
they are not objecting to the Republican
party on the ground that it_ makes bad
nominations, they are objecting to good
nominations on the ground that they were
made by. the Republican party."
Tuts is the way the Williamsport • Bul
letin looks at it : " Men who engineer in
dependent political movements almost in
variably belong to a Class „that have lived
strictly sit - bin party lines, until_ some
thing has occurred to dishearten or dis
gust them. All at once their diriappointi
ed spirits assume airs and would have the
public bolieve that they are disinterested,
only looking for the good of the dear peo
ple. The. Union County reformer is -A
type of this character. .:From boyhood an
ardent partisan, be secured support from
political friends, that. to-day Ate discards,
assuming that they are 'all wrong and he
right. Every subsequent step, however,
proves that he is grop;ng in the dark."
Individually and collectiVelY,Re
publicans have to remember that it
is never far from any man or any
party to quarrel. The man who
seeks a quarrel never seeks iu %Ain.
The ma:n who ,goes to his t!!:_inies
for counsel is never • far froura mis
understanding with his friends: At
this time there is reason to bear
-these homely facts in mind. For
these are quarrelsome times. No
party is at peace with itself. , There
is, in fact, much 'less rancor 0,11(1 bit
terness between parties than there is
between party factions. Neither of
the two great,pa - rtics is'at peace wi?i
itself Even. here 'in' Pennsylvania
the Democratic party is divided, and
the onl y reason why it seems to be
more united than our own arty is
that it is a party in a state of expec
tation. Having nothing to: divide it
has nothing to wrangle over except
nominations, and ° . Until it' has fair
hopes of success at the polls it cannot
get up a very warm quar l iel over
•nominations. Foi. - parties seldom
struggle very hard to see who shall
enjoy the luxury of defeat.
Bat if you will notice political
happenings you will find that the
state of the party . in
Pennsylvania is
, a sort of a barometer
.by which to gauge the prevalence of
faction in the. Democratic party. :
When, as now, there is-a faction fight
in the Republican party, the spirit of
faction discloses itself in the Demo
cratic party. It is plain that with_
the , Republican party' pnited * the
Democrats cannot expeCt• to elect
anybody in this State. With the
Republican' party divided Democrat
ic prospects improve and Democratic
hopes revive. The object of the
Democratic ; press is therefore to fo
'tient discords among Republicans.
_This is natural and not to be com .
plained of. -Where Republicans-are
in a - minority they encourage
factional quarrels among Democrats:
:It is a part of political management,
,:adopted by all parties, to Weaken the
:Apposition in every way possible. •
It is natural therefore that Demo
cratic editors and orators should
make the most of the quarrel among
Republicans. When certain Repub
licans arise to protest .igainst: the .
bosses " the Democrats i encourage
them to fight it out to the last gasp.
At the , same tithe the Democratic
'party is most abjectly subservient to-'
its " bosses." Bin this..makes no
difference— The object of i.s leaders
and 'managers , relates to fomenting
divisions in the ranlei of their oppo
nents-- They are not ; opposed -to
" bosses," but only to Republican
" bosses." We shall not at this time
discuss the " boss "'question,,because
we have urged the masses of the par-.
ty to speak for themselves in the only
way they can do it effectively. If
they= will do that all that is offensive'.
in "Bossism " will disappear. -- I
What we want to sty is this :
large number of State officers are to
be elected next November. Among •
tbew, a Governor. The name of';
den. BEAVER has been mentioned in -
that connection. But no sooner was
no named than thi, Democratic 10die
wrs raised a cry that BEAVER w2LB
the choice of the bosses. The object
being to excite the prejudices of a
portion of the Republican party
against Gen. BEALVEII. It is neces
aary W , create a split in advance of
the Convention. Whether Gen. BEA
VER is acceptable to to the leaders of
the Republican party or not we .do
not knOw. But supposing the con
trary to be the fact, and supposing
him to be selecled by the mas;4".tof
the party we should expect the Re
publican "bosses" to . support him.
Bat now we are informed by
Democratic and breiet. Democratic
press -that State Treasurer BU,TiEIt
is the proper man to be nonainated
by the Republicaas._ Row 16n,, will
he be regarded as the propCr map ?
Suppose that a boom for BUTLER
should spread over the State, how
long would . it be beforethe' obliging
Democrats, who take_ the trouble to
instruct Republicans who to 'nomi
nate, would discover that BUTLER
would be acceptable to the "bosses?"
And then what? Why, then Repub
licans would be warned not to nomi-
nate BUTLER. •
Our friends will see by this that
Democrats do not. - want any Republi
can nominated . who can unite the
party. They wanea man nominated
who will divide the party. The les
son is plain. In politics and in war,
do what- the enemy does riot want
you to do. and refrain from doing
what the enemy wants you to do
Select good men, men . not !nixed •
in faction fights. S6lect RepubliCans
who believe in the party because its
policy is wise and generous. Select
men who will not be the tools of r.
body, bosses or anti-bosses, but who
will dischaige the ddties and exer
cise the powers devolVed.upon them
in a conscientious manner. There is
no dearth of such men. Talk it over,
express your preferences, and then
elect - delegates to voice your collec- .
tive will. Meantithe let the Demo
crats blow their horns.

shown him by the, government he had at

face of the prosperiV df his late dominion

anew the seeds - of discord and discontent
among his former followers. There ;s
no fear of his advice Jieing followed to.
any,great extent by the people who have

but his treasonable mutterings are l an
outrage, and should be suVessed ; and
if his good sense is not sufficient to pre

L•ar f or the nomination to Pio Supreme
Very much has been said and written ,
during the past tirenty-fiee years in favor
of a reform in our system 'l. spelling, but
until the centennial year very little pro
gress was ramie in that direction: Several
asfs*ations in support of , the movement
had been organized in different Parts of
the English-speaking world, and in 1876
a convention was held in Philadelphia
which combined these (lift - rent associa
tions, ' and a phin of work was agreed up •
on. Since .that time many documents
have been issued in the reform type. and
Many converts have.seen made to the
phonic system.
By •he new system, each elementsry
sound must have ti character to represent
that sound, and no other.. The alphaoet .
will then contain 42 letters, and
. ach let
ter will have its — own. unvarying sound.
Reformers differ as to seine of the plans
for introducing the system, and it -is - not
our intention to discuss any one of the
,many systems proposed, tut to speak Of
spelling reform for itself alOne, and the
advantages which will attend its use.
While we' regret any departure from the
old forms, we believe in the good sense
and economy of the new.-
Those who hive taught in primary
grades and used the phonetic- system,
have been surprised at the progress made
by their pupils while using the phonic
type. They spell and represent words
quickly and accurately, and readily rec
ognize and pronounce new words at sight.
In , the schools of Germany, where the
spelling- is nearly phenolic, the children
leave to read and spell as• much! in one
year ass our own pupils learn by thi.tialpha
bet, word UT sentence meth, d in three
y:•ars. The. children in our sohools' are
becoming f miliar with words, and learn
ing to recognize them readily at sight,
until they are 14 years of age. The skill
'of the teacher and the methods of instruc
tion being equal, i.he children Of Geriilany
have the- smite knowledge at the age of
ten. Thus•fOnr years of school time are
stolep from the children and devoted to
the 'painful drudgery of spelling. These
. starements are, by no means idle specula
tion, but are given on tho-auth4ity of
those who can vouch for their accurazy..
Children are taught to use reason' and
judgment in their schtiol-wdik, but woe to
the child who attempts to use reason in
spelling. Of necessity, the characters must
be arbitrary, but the unsystematic system
which pnderlies the coati Wing of- these
strange hieroglyphics, only leads the child
farther fronaithe idea which he is: trying
to- express by means of letters. • If we
would have our alphabetic writing faith
fully and Antelligbly represent spoken
speech, we -must reform it. -
By our last census we learn that there
are 5,658,144 persons in the United States
over ten.years of
. age. who can neither
read or write. It is fair to presume that
01 the remainder, One-third cannot read ,
well enough to get much practical benefit
from their knowledge in this direction.
Thus we see that the printed matter of
the day reaches only about one-half Of
our population direct. The phonetic sys
tem wottld remedy a , 'rent part of this*
evil. Those - who spend only- three or
tour years in school, and who now obtain
only a smatterinj , of knowledge, - would'
become tolerably fair readers in that.
length of time. The printed page would
have more poiver in the 1;:nd ; the people
would be elevated intellectually and mor
ally; and a higher grade of civilization
would be4he result.
As an educational agency, \ the press
stands among . the most powerful ; Many
even claim that it is the greatest in the
world, and when printed in phonetic type
it would certainly dO much more towards
removing ign/rance and superstition.
These facts hale already been recognized
by Christian missionatiea. and the Ameri
can Tract - Society was at one time asked
to print copies of the Bible in the reform
type fordistiibution. l
-Actual e4eriment,' has shown that 25
pe. Cent. would be 4tved, in writing and
printing by dm•ping the silent letters
alone. Professor F. A. March, of Lafay
ette College; says "we throw away $lOO
- a -syear paying printers and pub
lishers for sprinkling (nit books and papers
-with silent letters.". We pay our primary
&Joel teachers $10,000,000 a year for the
extra work which our present system re
(Pines, and which might be given to other
and better educational work if our spell
ing was reformed and placed on as scion- .
t,itie a bases as other branches o! study.'
Many. who are opposed to the reform
chilin that it cannot be brobght about suc
cessfully. To do not deny that there is
s ime basis for the argument, but believe
that the objections which are raised
against it can be satisfactorily answered:
Many were opposed to the revision of the
-New Testatneut. The edition now uni
versally recognized was translated from
the original and issued in 1611, and it
bears upon its pages many errors and in
accuracies which the research of the pres . -
eta ago has brought to light. The pro
gress of the times demanded its revision ;
no one will deny that the work bas been
satisfactorily done, nor are there any good
grounds for believing that the year 1900
will ; not find it almost universally recog
It. is urged that our literature will be
lost, but this argument loses its force
when careful!y.cpnsidered. The awls of
Chaucer are read with but little difficulty
,hy studetitr. ard we would have little dif
ficulty in reading our present literatuip
were.our language phonetic. Only SCIIOI
- and students read our standard biera
„Ore as it is, and they could asily find
the way if they had the will. But there
would be' tittle necessity for - even- this
wotls.With printing presses in almost.
every City, village and town in the land,
a score of years would be, sufficient for
the le-printing of every standard English
work from the new type: 1 .-
.That our roots would not' be lost Kob T
Onus to all,: Roots are based upon sound,
and not upon the characters which repre
sent -them; and as ,no - !sounds will be
changed, roots will bi ar the same relation
to our language that they do 'DOW. Phil
ologists are not, m manyauppose, opposed
to phonetic spelling, because. the matter
for philological 'study depends 'upon the
changes which take place in living lan
guage from year to 'year, and these
changeil are of ne^.easity recorded in writ
ten language. Professor Max Muller sue
that ”"if our language followed the pro
nunciation of words it would in reality be
'ti givater help to the - critical student of
language than thelpresent uncertain and
unsystematic 'male of writing." •
It is well known thatour written lan-.
guage -is morei:difficult to learn than any
other languagei:on the face of the 'earth.
As our governn)ent welcomes to its shores
emigrants'of every race and n3tionality,
we should' have a language which ,•01.ild -
be easily' learned . and used, as it %timid
tt.nd - to•muite them and•give them a great
er-interest in their adopted country, As
it is, years are spent in becoming familiar
With our written language after learning
the:Spoken. It appeals entirely to the
memory in it,s peculiar combination of
characters, and requires oasmorkto
ing before we can correctly spell the meet
common words.
The truivem ent for'phonetie trpelling is
supported by our best educated men and
women. Manyof the leading educational
associations have' endoried it; several
State legislatures have appointed commit•
tees to examine into its feasibility. and
bill has been intoxluced in Congress to
constitute a commission which shall re
port upon the amendment of the orthog
raphy of the public documents. Several
papers are now published, in the interests
of phonetic spelling, and as thc. people
become more familiar with its practical
utility - they will bomore interested in its
adoption. -
The new . edition of Worcester's Dic
tionary, issued in 1881, gives a large.num
ber of emended spellings. 1.1-a-n-A is
given in its proper place as the earlier
and curivel spellinc , of island; is
given as the correct spelling of rhyme--
the presenE spelling of the word being a
modern blunder, started by the notion
-that it is a Greek Word like rhythm
a-k-e spellii coat, and Milton's s-o-v -r-a-n
is down as the true spelling of sorereign.
Many like etymological blunders are dis
cussed and corrected, and we believe that
this is but a beginning of more thorough
reforms in the same direction.
AR civilization advances, old methods
and forms must be improved. As a na
tion, the United States has made remark
able progress in manufactures, inventions,
arts, sciences, and literature. With the
advancement in these directions, there is
a growing, demand for more written and
printed matter ;• and although we write
and print more pow than ever ;before in
the history of thg - world,
.and although
improvements have been wade in almost
every direction, yet; our system of sniffl
ing, which dates back to antiquity, has
not been overhauled and improved for
centuries. Its antiquity is the thing ,
which we prize most highly, and for that
reason we suffer the inconveniences which
attend it. The people 'demand a shorter
system, easily learned and easily used ;
and we trust the day will soon come when
they will shako off the shackles which
bind !them to their old idols, and _gladly
adopt the new, scientifiaPed sensible sys

WASHINGTON. Jan. - 24.—The. court:

capacity at am-early hour this morn

gumentondsaid that he shonli vary
somewhat his originatintentions, and
in order to bring the Casc!to a conchi
sion as quickly. as possible, 'would
simply touch upon!-_a few salient
points of the evidence. M said be li
belieyed John W. Gulteau ' t be an
hOneSt man, who came to contribute
his means and evidences to • save
brother's life, yet the-truth froni his
lips .must fOree upon the jury the
Conviction that on the 2d of July
the prisoner was sane. He then con
trasted the prisoners various swindl
ingl'movoments with the actions of
tlie7Apostle Paul, in the light of the
prisoner's.assumption that he, like
Paul, was honestly - engaged in doirig
the Lord's work. - He then incident,
lv spoke of the horror .arid -detesta
tion-with which•men •of all- .parties
and shades of, opinion looked upiii
thy:prisoner *ad the unanimity with
which they execrated
.his act. Gui
teau, who had repeatedly, interrupt
ed before, now broke nut with a tor
ent of abuse. As 'Judge Porter pro :
•ieeded, the- prisoners interruptions,
increased, and Mr. Scoville finally
joined in with a protest and a de
mand that counsel be stopped. The
Court decided.against. Mr. Scoville's
application, and ,Judge Porter,
protieeded to demolish Cu!.! Reed's
pictui•eof Charlotte l'ordik as an
insane Woman. Until the • hour of
recess the prisoner condi - nisi 1 to in
terjedt. vindictive abuse, and was
roused to complete fury hy : the de
tinneiations piled upon - by coun
sel. After recess Judge Porter made
t lia,ity resume again of.Guiteau's
and claimed that, its whole tenor
was in accord with' the •assumption
that revenge and the mot hid: desire
for notoriety actuated the prisoner
lie then passed tui the question of
the .direct issue' as to , whet•her 'the
prisOner was insane on 'the 2rl 01
July. lie pointed out the absurdity
of the pi isoner's claim th:.t, like the
stroke Of lightning all his insanity .
should .vanish in'an instant, after en-,
veloping him comp etely day after
-day. for the purpose of murder ; that.
Welting to him after the fi:st shot
was fired, and only worked itself
an I left him sane when he saw his
victim sinking the ground
to conclusion, he calk:d upon the
jury to so discharge th. it duty . that,
.ny their action at least political as
'sassination shall find no sanction to
make it a prteedent. 'hereafter Be
said, "I . tru,4 the verdict be
prompt ; that :it will :represent the
majesty of the law, your integrity,

-that this trial, whie-h . has so deeply
interested all: the ' nations on th

. Judge Cos, then ia . t.:3'115 r. 31.
bean to deliver his :charge to the
jury. Irthe course of a careful re
view of the evidence and the defence
on the ground of insanity, he sail
the gOvernment was not-bound to
show affirmatively as a
.part of its
proofs that the defendant was sane.
Further, on in his charge he said :
"When men_reasoned the law riluir
ed them to reason correctly so far as
lhei4ractical duties werecoarierned ;
when l- they had the capacity to dis
tin!ruish. betweeu right and. wrong

properly, so called' that is, beliefs
reSuking from reasoning, relleelion
and the ekatnination of
afforded no .protection against the
penal einiseriumices of crime. In
conclusion; he told the.jury, in effect,
- that-if they did not consider the pris
oner insane at the time of the shOot
ing ; if they believed the crime sprang
from a Morbid desire, for notoriety,
or if they failed to find no motive a',
all, the act• would he simply.murder,
,it would by their duty to find.
a verdict of guilty as indicted, or if
they-.should find that `the prisoner
-was not guilty 'by 'reason of insanity,
they should say so. The charge was
completed ,by 4 : 40 P. 'it., and the
jury withdrew to consider . the ver
