The Demoaraev and IU leader have
two specialties for campaign purpose.
One ot these la toprotulae or demand the
Impracticable ; the other 1 to promise
or demand things already aeeouipltthed
by the Kepnblleau party. The Denver
platform present, obvloui Inttanoeiof
the former, and It further exhibits
atriklna- lnstaoee ot the latter. In re
lation to eampalga contributions by cor
po ration. It makes the following dec
"We pledge the Democratic party to
the enactment ot a law preventing an
corporation contributing to a campaign
ln order that this prsjtloe shall be
stopped tor ail lime we demand tue itass
ase of a statute pnnUhttjg with imprison
ment any ofllaer of a oorporatlou who
shall either, contribute on beuitlf of or
consent to the contribution by a co'pj-
ratloa ot any money or thing of ralue to
be used in turtnering toe election oi s
President or Vice-President of the Unit
ed States or au,y member of Congress
Bo far a this practice can be ended by
federal legislation, the Republican party
did all that Is posrible, uearly a year and
a half before the Denver platform de
dared that it ought to be done. An act
of fougre, passed by a Republican
House and Senate, and approved by a
Republican President January 20. 1C07,
ooutatns the following drastio provlciont;
"That It .hall be nnlawf ol for any ua-
any corporation organ
lied bv authority of any laws of Con
grew, to make a money contribution in
connection with any election to any po
litical ofaee. It shall also be unlawful
for any corporation whatever to make a
money contribution In connection with
any election at. which Presidential and
Vlee-Presldentlal electors or a Represen
tative In Congress, is to be voted for, or
any electl-m by any State Ii-gislature ol
a Culled States Senator. Every corpo
ration which shall make any contribu
tion In violation ot the foregoing provls-
lons snail be subject to a one not ex
ceeding fire thousand dollars, and ever
officer or director of any corporation
who shall consent to auy eontributiou
by the corporation in violation of the
foregoing provisions shall upou eouvio
ftiou be imulsliecl by a flue of not exceed-
log one tiiouaaud and bot less tban two
hundred and illty dollars, or by Impris
onment fur a term of not more than one
year, or both such fine and Imprison
meut, iu the discretion of the court."
Thus, while the practise complained
of received a knock-out blow at the
hands of Republicans, we have the Dsui
ooratie pledge that It shall again be
done to death wliru the Itryan snicker
anee is drawu aud thr right arm of the
Democratic chief Is bared for Its destruc
tlon. Wueu this is aaaomplished the
"Peerless Leader" will deserve the praise
given to the cowboy hero "He did his
d dest ; augels could do no more."

England. Tne method is simple but
vigorous. The owners of dogs are
compelled to keep tbem muxxled if they
are allowed to run abroad, ur, it they
are taken out unmuuled, the owner is
obliged to keep them in leash. A quar
tntine is strictly enforoed against the
importation ot dogs from other coun
tries until their exemption from disease
is thoroughly established. The thorough
enforcement of these precautionary
measures for a few years past has made
rabies impossible in England. Both

The apparent hardship of the experi

good. Similar laws should be made

Additional KsarLy Forgotten FacU-
The Ucthnd 1st parsonage, which la
now perched on blocks and awaiting the
finish of its foundation walls at the north
cost corner ot Church and Eleventh
streets, is something ot a traveler. It
was first built on tho opposite, or south
oast corner of the same streets, some
thing like bait a century ago, by Dr.
Consider King. The lot on which the
building then stood was sold by the ex
ecutors of Jason Torrey to George L.
Mores in May, 1650, and by him deeded
to Mrs. Lucma Kiog, wife ot Dr. King,
on the 2Zih ot March, 1S0S.
Dr. Consider King was born in Rena-
salaerville, Albany county, X. V., March
IS, 1797. After a liberal education, and
a course of study for the profession, be
commenced the practice of medicine and
surgery in Miltord, Otsego county, X.

ham, Greeno county, N. Y.. and subse
quently to Coopers town, N. Y. From
that place he came to fionesdale in the
summer ot K51. where, notwithstanding
a peculiarly brusque and, to some peo
pie. forbidding manner, bis evident
ability soon secured him a large and lu
crativc practice. Ilia bouse was direct
ly adjacent to the old lionesdale Acad
my, and some of the now ancient pu
pils ot that institution will recall, as a
sample of his gnm humor, biashakmg a
dismembered leg at them on one occa

suited in hia death on Wednesday morn

vived by bis wife and one daughter, a
very gifted lady, the wife of Edgar b
Brown, a New York lawyer. Mrs. King
slid the property to Clarissa, wife of
Edwin E. Gilbert, ot the original tic
mng firm ot Hard, uuoert s. t'aimir,
who in 1S17 bought a tract of a thousand
acres of hemlock timber land lying along
Carlcy Brook in Oregon township and
in IMS built a tannery there. K h Oil
bert and Jacob k. Palmer were brothers
ic-law, and for several years lived in
adjoining hoi in what is now East
iioneodale. tanning firm finally
became GilU-n, Palmer & Rt-eds, OLd
eventually included the mercantile es
tablishment in Honesdale, originally
started by the Reed Brothers, in what
was known aa The Arcade. Though for
a long time very prosperous, business
reverses, following tbe panic of 18S7,
brought the firm to grief, and Mr Gil
bert, later on, became one of the pro
prietors of a tannery at Little Equiounk,
in Manchester township, maintaining
the family residence in Honesdale in the
house bought ot Mrs. King. While at
Little Equinunk Mr. Gilbert was found
dead, kneeling at the bedside in hie
room, on Thursday, February 23, 1(71
He was C5 years of age. and so fares
wse known bad been in good health up
to the time of his sudden demise. The
rrmaius were first brought to the Hones
dale home, and men taken to Morris,
Otsego Cj., N. Y., for interment. Three
months before his death Mr. Gilber
contracted to sell the Church and E ev
eaib. streets property to tbe Methodist
Episcopal (Society of Honesdale for
ml, but it was not until teu yoire later
that the church people acquired full
title. The original agreement was mde
December 1, 1S70, and during tbe Cbrirl
mas holidays following tbe ladies of the
i-ougreghtion held a fair in the Court

By tho 4th of July, ls-, tho new

Col. Richard L. Sly, and various other
papers and articled. Tbe corner stone
itself came from Syracuse, where all of
the trimmings of the building were cut.
Tbe laii(H ot tbe church took advantage
ot tho occasion to hold a festival, which
netted tliu. Iu April, 171, the trustees
sold to Samuel B. Haley tbe old parson

was a string attached to the gift, which
required a payment ot I1SU to tbe Com

used for other than parsonage purposes.
This clause in the deed was, bowever,
generously rescinded through the kind
uffloes of tbe late Coe K. Young, when
tbe title waa transferred to Mr. Haley.
