He has from the beginning, it says,
been a most faithful assistant of Mr.

which has been 'simply the policy of
honesty,' with rare'business. ability
and experience. The departure of Mr.
James will leave Mr. Elmer the only

arranging and cutting down star mutes.
The rumor that Elmer was about
to I:* superseded by Filley, of St. Louis,
thy: correspondent regarded as most
alarming. But that is not to be, ,at
least at present. It is not likely that
those who are applauding Mr. Howe's

to have Mr. Elmer remain, but he will
probably be allowed to await the de

The Repnblicani who seek reforui—
within the .paity are if:opened- .by a
profound conviction that the Princi
ples they advOcate are Vital to continu
ed 'Republican anendancy.,. Thry
firmly believe that in pursuing the
coursethey have marked out they are
are rendering the best possible service
to the common cause. Nemen can be
more impressed with the intportance of
achieving *publican_ Success in this
tate at the next election. Upon such
a 'rest& may hinge the .control of the
next - House of Representatives. Still
imore important, it may decide the next
Presidency and determine -whether the
iqovernment shall remain in Republi
can hands or pass under the dominion
of the Democracy. The election of
1882 will to shape the contest
of 1884; 1. '
With this understanding of its vital
bearings, it would be assuming a very
heavy responsibility to jeopardize Re
publican success.. Any course, whether
on the part of the Republican 'eiders
or the Republican protestant calculat-
ed to imperil the triurnph of the party
would'be little short of criminal. The
very object. the Reform Republicans
aim at is to remove the conditions
which involve a risk of disaster. They
bave seen the irresiibleatepublican
majorities of ten years ago dwindling
-and fading away. 'They have seen the
repeated outbreak of personal dictation.
They have seen-forty thousand Repub
licans, in spite of their own -appeal to
fight the battle within the party, sul
lenly refuse to follow:, the party flag,
and vote an independent ticket as 'a
protest against the , wrongs of manage
ment. And seeing the breakers upon
which these things ',are_ plunging the
party, they, are making a brave, honest,
earnest effort to save l it.
There is, nothing of the spirit of
faction in their course of their policy.
On the contrary, they faithfully labor

ions and elements can sand together
on. a faii and honorable platform. In
stead of waging a proscriptive warfare
against any indiyiduals or any class,
they proclaim the plain doctrine of
popular rule which places all Republi
cans on an equal footing.. They only
ask that an honest effort shall be, made
to ascertain the real will of the Repub
lican masses, and that, when it is as
certained, all sides shall frankly accept
and abide by it. It is tho . simple
principle of the rule of the majority.
They cannot disguise Man themselves
or from the people , that there have been
grave evils whichl'have excited public
dissatisfaction and Which endanger the
' hold of the party upon thousands of
good citizens who have no interest in
politics beyond securing good govern-
ment. But they tell the people that it
is entirely practicable to : correct these
wrongs within the party, and that it is
as unnecessary as it would be unfortu
nate to strike down the Republican flag
to secure redress. The remetiy. is in
their own hands. They have the power
to accomplish a reform. Let them
come out and exercise their right , in ,
the Republican primary assemblies,
and their movement will be irresistable.
The Reform Republicans earnestly
seek to unite and harmonize the party
on the basis of the equal rights of; all.
Their effort is to save and not to. ;des
trey, to build up and net to tear dOwn.
If the - controlling manager of the party
-will meet these purpoSes - in a . similar
spirit, the future will be 4ecure. The
Republicans who have recently issued
an address to the people Want nothing
but the establishment of `the people's
rights. They demand that the Con- .
vePtion shall fairly reflect public senti
i •
ment, and that its action shall repre
sent the will of the Majority, antrwith
such a result they will be content. Let
the managers be equally free from .a
narrow, factious, proscriptiVe spirit,
and the pathway of success will he
clear.—Phila. Press..

the oath of office, a full meeting of 'the

The Piesident said that - it would be

The President returns to this city ;
to=day, and sinl Monday will hold his .
usual New Year's reception. It is ex.
pected from. the different circumstances
sarrounding the present inmate of the
White House than those which attend
the occupant of last year, that the
New . Year's festivities will be of un-
I usual . brilliancy. :In fact, since the ac
cession of "a widower President, Waak
ington secieei has a new interest in de
vising -ways and mama - tit render it,
self attractive, and to bring tto. this city
from distant parts the most: beautiful
and attractive belles. Washington
abounds in' society men, sad olio in
society women, but there has always
been a dearth of recognized 'belles/here,
whose beauty more than wealth entities
them to the name.. So now, as qie
winter gaities are about_ to commence,
the influx of pretty girls into Wash
ington from all parts of the country, bn
ai visit to their dear forty-seeond cons
in, or distantly removed par or a u nt,
is at once a joy to our young meteand
an- evidence , that the leading society
matrons are laying the ijet to capture
any one, raging from a President doWn
to a first-class clerk. In the matter of
dress; it has been 'commented by ex
perienced observers, that the ladies
never before dressed" so richly or be
comingly as this winter. Meal skin
sacques, fur-lined circulars, and the
other expensive paraphernalia which
Signalizes the reign of old Boreas, are
i,ts plentiful i n , the streets as the snow
flakes which fell here yesterday, and as
a r . consequence our society men are
more than usually _ troubled by tailors',
and gents' furnishing bills. However,
all seem determined to have a good
time, and those ivhe stand ofkand
watch the sport, are prepared to enjoy
rare sport in the crowded parlors, and
to watch the parting together next
spring of many here who came her
apart. •

There are several' important -ques
tions relating to the financial interests
of the country which are to come before
the present Congress. The House is
partly made .up of . new and untried
members, whose op nions and views on
flna:.ce are " unke wn to the ceuutty
generally, and ti rally this creates a
feeling of solicitude among those class
es to be most affected by financial leg
islation. The question of renewing
national bank charters for , another
twenty years is one of more than ,usual
interest, and about which a. wide diff
erence of opinion is known to exist in
Congress. It involves other questions
of importance, or one mere, at least.
The circulation of national banks .'
based upon or secured by United States
bonds. ' If the , present rate of taxation
continues, other conditions remaining
as' favorable, the national debt would
probably be paid oft before the extended
bank charters expired. This would
bring the question to the vital point—
shall the present rate of taxation be
maintained or decreased,. and, if the
latter; where shall the 'eduction be
made; in the internal or custom re
ceipts?., i The free-traders and revenue
reformele favor a reduction of tariff i
duties, while the protectionists prefer
to see - the entire internal system of tax
ation abolished rather than reduce ihe
Attorney-General Brewster's letter
to Col. George Bliss declares that the
Star*oute cases 'are to be prosecuted
in earnest. He ' wants the cases thor
oughl7 and carefully prepared for pre
sentation in court, and announces his
purpose to take charge of them in per
son there. The utmost penny lawlessly
received and taken , from the public
Treasury must be , recovered, he says.
This sort ot-ialk by the 'Attorney-
General does not indicate that the
Government -has any disposition to
" let up" in the pursuit of the Star
Route robbers. • .2

which the disease had made its appear

Walla-Walla, Washington Territory,
the postal authorities have directed the
sureties to remove the office and effects.
Before, this

cases 'the mail from post offices of
towns suffering from the diease will be

disease is so bad that mail matter from

The money-orders business of the
east Office Department has increased
to such proportions that the employees
of that division, in order to keep , up
with their work, have. been 'compelled
to put in all their' holiday time at their
desks. The money-order' syitem has
been largely extended abroad by new
connections with foreign governmenis,
but aside from this, it is rapidly grow;:
ing in the United States. , It is a some
what surprising fact that money orders
are used to a considerable 'extent for
the transmission of money even between
cities where banking facilities, ' are
plenty. • Congress Will probably be
asked for lan increase of .the clerical
force of the - division to meet the grow

It having been urged by some, before
Judge Cox consented to place p.niteau
in Abe dock, that to have punished him
at any time for contempt of court
would have been to decide in advance

is made that by allowing the prisoner
to appear as his own counsel, as well as
by putting him on the stand and ad

For lack of space - Aie omitted last
week, the - proceedings in the-Guitei)u

,the most
important incidents of the trial from
Wednesday of last week, On_ that
day Judge Niter for the prosecution,
addressing the • Court said that the
time bad come when in the name Of the
American people, and on behalf of the
government, in a Federal Court, he
felt it his duty to demand that the pris-
one; be remanded to the dock.
Guiteau, (spitefully)- 4 0h! you do!
You big-Mouthed Porter!
The court officials-sitting behind the
prisoner attempted to quiet him. He
whirled around and snarled at ; one o
htm: "Well, you mind your , busi
ness, or I'll slap you in the mouth, you
fool, you!"
Judge Porter continued his remarks,
and Guiteau shouted: 'Well, you bad
better mind your business'
Judge Porter--i That is my, business
here, and your Honer, I must
now insist upon my motion - of Satur
day, that the prisoner be retrieved to
the dock.'
Mr. Paxidge believed that the time
had come when every one. preserit was
satisfied that the prisoner was perfectly
sane and amenable to theeame rules as
other prisoneri. In the case of General
Sickles, tried in this court for murder,
the Judge reus ed to deviate from the
rule, although 'he was a distinguished
laWyer arid a member of Congress; and
he sat in the prisoner's dock during
the trial.
Mr. Scoville. said that he would as
sent to any proposition deemed neces
sary. No person suffered more, than
he from the prisoner's behavior.
Guiteau—'Well, it is because you
are a jackass.r If I had decent counsel
I'd not have any occasion for remarks.
You are doing well enough on your
theory, but your theory is altogether
too narrow. You lavn't got brains
enough for this case:
COI-Reed denied that the prisonei's
sanity had been established. He
thought an admonition to the - prisoner
from the Court would suffice.

District Attorney Corkhill insisted
upon the removal of the prisoner to the
dock, and the removal from around
hiin•of the policemen, who are attaches
of the court, find that he be kept there
with no other special protection than
accorded to any other piisoner. ,\
Guitiou, trembling with finger or
apprehension, shouted: 'You want •to

tested against the proposition of the
District Attorney, which could not be

After an impressive argument by
Judge Porter, in which he repelled the
reflection of the defence upon the Dis
trict Attorney, Judge Cox stated that
110 certain measure to silence the pris
oner could have been taken without
abridging his constitutional rights;
wher - cas, it has been deemed, and . he
thought rightly, that "the prisoner's
behavior and ..utterances would prove

The Expenses of
County. ,
As the tiro i for a yearly settlement
of our county affairs is near;
. rind there
has been a reat deal Of discussion
recently in riference to the actual-con
dition of the county finances, 'I would
call attention to the law in reference to
the publication of. an annual statement
of the receipts and expenditures as
" It sh4ll:be the duty of the commis
sioners of each comity to publish
annually, a week for four sucees•
sive. Weeks in the inonth of February, a
full and accurate statement of all
receipts. and expenditures of the pre.
ceeding year in one or ',more of the
newspapers printed in the county.
* *. *
Such statement shall
enumerate the respective sums paid"by
each ward and township within the city
and county, and also designate all
sums- expended for the support of
prisoners, the pay of each commissioner
and of their clerk, the repair of old and
the erection of new bridges, • * *
together with T such
other items as may have a tendency! to
convey general information el the
transactions of the preceeding year."
During the term of the present ICom
tuissionera the county has entered upon
an era of extraordinary
involving, debt and heavy taxation,
and the taxpayers naturally evince
more than-ordinary concern in reference
to the management of county affairs.
The people have the right to a full and
clear annual statement in accordance
with the spirit of the above quoted
enactment, which will show clearly for
What objects or purposes their money
has been paid. For instance, what has
the I.lwsuit with the Bridge Company
cost ? How much was paid to attor
neys in, that , case ? How much to
witnetses, etc., etc ? .
In reference to the Poor House, how
much has been' paid during the year for
construction ? How much for furnish
ing? How much for farm labor? How
much for supplies, etc?
I simply put these 'few questions as
a sample of what I think' an "annual i
report should meet and reply to, in
some detail, rather than in lump or
aggregate statements that convey very
little " information of the tiangfctions
of the . preceding year." If former
annual reports have not been as full - 9f
particalars as would hayie- been desir
able, and have tended to excite distrust
rather than confidence in the minds of
some people, why shall there not be a
full and frank statement in the next
annual report that shall not only disarm
suspicions, but form a precedent forithe
stinual reports of our county affairh' in
the faiure.
Thc history of county affairs in this
4nd adjoining States indicate that
large expenditures, • like 'ours, leads to
the formation of speculative rings for
controlling such expenditure for private
benefit, rather than the public' good.
Such rings can only be successful where
there is darkness and concealment.'
They,cannot live in " the sunlight of
publicity." Let U 3 know :where the
money goes to,, and we Will try to pay i l
our taxes cheerfully. _ ' -

Thew Farm sad Lumber Wagons are, without
doubt, the very best wagons now in the market.
The manufacturers of the Auburn Wagons are
making every effort to make the very best wagon
possible; and with such sureness. that' they en
and do make $ better Farm and Lumber- Wien
than any wagon-maker can Make who ha& not ths•
unequalled facilities possessed by thee, D. Clan
Wagon CO. No wagon-maker in Northern Yen
sylvanla can make as good a wagon in all re,
'poets. I refer particularly to the wheels and
Nothing but first aisle timber, thoroughly
seasoned, is used, and the woods of the entire
running gears are soaked in boiled linseed ell
And thoroughly dried before being painted. No:
malleable irons are used. The Wagon Company
has its own - rolling mill arid makes its own re.
fined iron, and that of the very blest quality.
Mr. Clapp, the President of the Wagon c o r e .
pang, and an old wagon-maker of very high rep
utation, a feW days ago said to me: ••IJ,oe would•
exert ourselves to Lle utmost to stake a better swages,
we could sot do .
I invite all farmers and others needing in
wagons to 01&121Ile Atte Auburn Wagon Delon

be convinced that I do not claim too ranch for it.
Come and see the wagons or send for clrcal►s
