All the indications that crop to the
surface show that there is afierce hostil ;
ity to Mr. Hayes among
_the radicals of
'Pennsylvania, and there is no doubt Mutt
this feeling ib industriou4y stimulated
by the - party leaders: Some of : " them,
however, need no stimuli:is.. TheSe Rey
publicans say that when: l lE4es deserted
his ally„ the fraudulent Governor of
Louisiana, he should have had the de.
cency to resign. In the Republican con
vention at Philadilphia - Toesday, a
long reselution, was offered 'expressing
the `utmost confidence" in - Mr., Hayes
-and. the "sincere, belief "that he . has the
best intrests of his party at heart; and
is actuated sole:y by
.a 'desire to promote
the welfare of the people generally" and .
depreciating all attempts to "withdraw
from him the sympathy and support of
the party." These resolutions, we regret
4? say were laid on the table by a nearly
unanimous vote. In the republican con
vention of AlleghenY county last week
similar resolutions met with a like
amid a scene of confusiOn and tumult
There was an unusually large meeting of
the Republican State Central Committee
in this city on Tuesday. Nearly sixty
members were present, among them were
some supporters - of the. policy of Mr.
Hayes.: But on consultation after can
vassing the opinions of the *members of
committee the friends of Hayes, , finding
themselves in a minority, concluded not
to risk a resolution of confidence and ap-.
proval. The . radic s al leaders- of Pennsyl
vania are not opposed to the policy of
Mr. Hayes inltaelf r since they care very
little for the poor negrocs of the South,
and still less for the carpet-baggers. But
they regard his desertion ot Packard as a
gross violittion of fidelity to the conspira- ,
tore . who elevated him to the presidency.'
As Fratid3lent President they insist that
he should have supported Packard in the,
.office of Governor of Louisiana if it re
quired for four years the whole military
and naval force of the'conintry; But in
stead of doing so they - say he showed the
white feather*in presence of the defeated
and defrauded political. enemy. The re
puhlican leaders of Pennsylvania - have a
code of political . morality though it is.but
little . above that,which would be neces
sary to maintain discipline and'harmony
in a pirate ship.. Patriot. ,
The , harvest - prospects in th e North
west.are summarized from considerable
data printed in the Chicago 77711.68. It
embraces the grain 'regions tributary to
Chicago. In SOuthern, - Central— and
Eastern•lllipois it is expected
wheat crop will be vt;ry large this year—
fully 40 per cent . - beyond •what it was in
1860 and equal to th e e great yield'uf 1874
=but the cold weather and the rains
have retarded corn-planting, and a-por
tion of the southweet. of , the State:is
most literally under water.. As a natural
consequence, the -corn„ crop outside, of
Northern Illinois estimated at 35 per
cent: below the aVerage. In NOrtliepa
Indiana the prospects of a
i good . harvest
are pronounced very enoouraging., .In
Wisconsin thefarmers are in goodspirits,
and expect a crop that may restore their
to the prosperity that they enjoyed before
ihe . panic of 1873: Fromlifin hetiota comes
the same - pleaiant stoiy,, and the 'best
agricultural authority in that State eisti
mates' the wheat.crop at 40,000,000 bush-
In,lo‘a 'there is,a decrease. in' wheat
production, and the , State 4s abandoning
that cereal for corn: .Nebrailkaand:Kan
sas are in dread -of the 'esaishopp9r, but
vigorous efforts .are being made to head
them ofr,,a 4 d,in Kansas from- 10 to 20 iver

HOSTILITY TO iIIAYES.,
WHO IS TO BLAME ?
Some innocent persons _iiippose that
only democrats were concerned in the
"Luzerne steal," as the Scranton Repub.'
lican calls it. OcCasionally, a republican
is elected to office in' Luterne county,
and when they do get in they "halm an
eye to business."-
We know nothing -about the merits of
the report of the seven years, auditors,
but report that G. M. Miller, retwub
lican ex-county treasirrer, is ; . indebted
$361..24; that Geo. P.: Richards i `republi-
Oan.e,x-clerk of the courts, . got froni -the
conimiosioners $2,981.14 more - :'than he
was entitled to ; that , James Courtright,
republican ex-county treasurer, got 11,-
158.44, which he forgot to . pay over, that
John P.,. Fell, republican painter, got
$1 1 891.65, which he ought not to have
had ; that M. B. Houpt, republican con
tractor, got $1,161.35, which he ought not
to have had , ; thab.C. M. Williams, repub
lican assistant assesor, got $lOO which he
ought not to have had; that C. M. 'Corn ,
well, republican county map man, got
$4,695.89, which he ought not to have
had ; Then C. F. Hill, • republican- ex
commissioner, is charged, with the other
county commissioners, in the suni of
$5,363-A2, which is to be Paid to the
county. Then there is H. C. Jones,
republican clerk to.the county ,treasurer,
the good Lord only knows how much' he
got. But we will quit for ate present.
The above - alllOll4l foot up over $2 7 ,700,
while the whole amount, 'according to
the report of the auditors,, is $48,107;32.
,Who in the future•will hay.e the hardihood
to call this a democratic steal we leave' to
those republican neviapapers who say "it
is gratifying to learn that only democrats
did the stealing in Luzerne county."
And-it must be remembered, too* that
none of this stealing was done prior to
1870, when the republicans' elected the
the president judge and nearly the whole
county ticket so, instead of_ the dem
ocrats leading astray:_ any St the republi
can fold, -it is _very evident that :the boot
is on the other leg::
And another important fact
the court house has_ never been free'frOm
"republicans since ; but there is every
evidence to believe that the present hold
they have upbn the offices in Luzerne
will be their last for many years to come.
The sooner the change is made the better,
and we.think that the people are coming
into this belief and that they
will inaugurate a grand reform as soon as
the opportunity. i aff9r4ed.---Luzerpe
THE CHARLIE ROSS CASE.
Thee reward of $10,600 offered ,by "the
great moral sho%imitn,' -P. T. Barnum,
for the recovery of Charlie Ross, has
spurred into,ac.tivity.a ri umber of persefis,
who, from ; time to, time, have dabbled . in
the. mysteries of the great abduction.
One person, however, whbse intelligent
understanding of the casehasiOng.since

that already he is firmly ,impreased. with
the idea.that' he . holds: in hands the
solution of the great enigma.' ''_As yet he

Judge Ludlow of -Philadelphia, has no ,
sympathy for the noble • order of wife
beaters. A. weak, jury in his cibiirt-the
Other day acquitted a .-trute of this 'des.
cription. The Times described what fol
lowed : P• •
"Judge I.4tidlovr,fora,moutent, C tapt up.

menced crying we dare not go

you coine to me; and I, sitting as a 06m

said the'judge, who, - turning to the
prieed jury,: continued:.'"Gentleinen,
this is :your affair and not Mine, and. the
responsibility is on you. You have ac
quitted this man, as you had a right to
do, and' I have nothing to say." - , - The
foreman Weakly responded: .".If the
_man was such a bad character why didn't
the District Attorney tell us.?" "He had
no right to," quickly 'retorted the Judge.
"You should keep your' eyes continually
about you when you sit as jurors, for it
*as only yesterday: this" man was before

The gallows speeches of repentant
criminals,*as a rule, are bits of mockery
and self-glorification, but . the case of
Austin Hilniphreys, who was hung the
other day in Canada, • near Detroit,' for
shooting down and 'a dilatori
debtor, appears to .be an exception to the
rule. Facing 'Aeatli With' cottiage, but
