The names for several,distriets have not
yet been handed to the chairman by the dele
gates. They are requested to do so at- their
. earliest leonvenience. .*.
While the battle' has been fierce
between the advocates and defenders
of popular tights on the one hand
and the promoters of personal po lit-
ical rule on: the other, in the Repub-
'heart party of Penrisylvauia, the
signs of the time are auspicious of
good results. The advocates of cer-
tain reforms within the organization,
having relation especially to the pm-
tection of the masses of the party in
the assertion of their judgment, pri
marily, in respect tp the choice of
candidates for nomination ) , have
made their influence felt for good, as
is already manifest in the action of
several of the county 'committees o
the - party in various sectias of the
State. In respon§er:to the demand
of ~ t he reform element that the people
sh'ould be heard in the choice of del-
egates to the coming State Conven
tion, the committees, instead ofas
suming to name a side-pocket ;dele
gation who could be used there as a
machine in the interest of personal
rule, have uniforMly, thus far, called
delegate conventions in their re
spective counties for the election of
delegates to the State :Convention.
So much, then, has been accom
plished by the reform movement in
the interest of popular rights. But
the work shoal not stop here. The
delegates to the Slate Convention
should be chosen from the best and
most 'worthy men; who will exert
_their influence in carrying forward
the work of party reform. They
should be instructed to support the
adoption of a rule for the govern
ment of the State Committee in call
ing future State Conventions, pro-
thibitinn fixing of an earlier time
than the first of August, except in
' the year of Presidential nomination.
The convention of. the party should
also, by resolution! ? formally accept
the ruling of the last National Con
vention, in respect to the right of
representation` by Congression i al dis
tricts; as the rule of the party in
Pennsylvania. The right, of the
State Convention to elect and in
stinct the Senatorial delegates is Un
questioned, brit its right to name the
repreientative delegates and bind
themlto vote as a unit is sternly. re
slated —and denied. The National
Convention at Chicago 'practically
. settled the latter by the
adoption of a resolution asserting
the principle :. of district representa-
I tion as' the rule of the party. - The
friends of popular rights in our ap
proaching State Convention should,
in furtherance of their reform move
ment, see to it that our State Con—
vention formally accepts the rule
adopted at Chicago as the rule of
the party in Pennsylvania.
The newspapers of Washington
of both parties; all sing, the Es=
tune. The come and vindictive -at
tacks fulminated through their col
umns upon every departmental offi
cer who attempt to administer his
executive duties in • the interest of
publiothonesty and economy is a (*-
pace to American journalism. They
,defend the combinations of ring
thieves, and attempt to blacken the
personal character of every public
officer who interposes his official
power to put a stop to their ergot-
ized methods of plunder. No honest
official escapes their vile attacks ; and
their praise luzs come to be regarded
as a reflection upon the integrity of,
men in public position.

on Saturday morning last and eontiu
ed throughout the day until late in the
evening, closing up with a strong gale
of wind and drifting the snow in heaps
in exposed places. A , more seyere
storm is seldom known in northern

Pennsylvania than that which prevail
ed here on Saturday. The street cars
were for a time completely blockaded.
We saw on Saturday, the snow plows
used tiy the street
,railway company
for cleaning their tracks,' at work'drawn
by teams of eight horses each—four
pairs. Each plow threw off the snow
to the full width of the track. They
pas.sed twice over the two tracks in
opposite 'directions, leaving them. com
paratively clean, so that on Sunday the
cars ran as usual.
The sleighing yesterday was excel
lent. All Washington seemed to be
enjoying it. Grand old Pennsylvania
Avenue on Sunday afternoon present
ed a perfect sleighing carnival. - The
broad -avenues and streets of Washing
ton afford a fine opportunity for show
ing off style in grand turnouts. ;'Yes
terday's fine sleighing was an inviting
opportunity for pleasure. The young
fellows each with his best girl were
ou:, with the finest rigs to be had in
the city. The way they drove and flew
along the broad thoroughfare regard
less of safety, to themselves or others,
showed that they regarded the bliss
ful enjoyment of present moment as
all the 'world to them. ,
The Jefferson School building; _

one of the largest, if not the largest
school brilding in the city was burned
early on Saturday morning last. It
was a graded public school, and the
building, was capable of accommodating
nearly 2,ooo_Fholars. The average
attendance was about 1500. The
building cost $125,000, and itsdestruc
tion is a severe loss to . the and
especially to the educational interest.
rortunately the fire did not occur while
the schools were in session. Had
it done so great loss of life would prob.

At a momentigiait . ,teu.o'elockthe
prisoner ace; broughtin ' . and took: be
seat at tbe cennsel table,and the court
was then formally opened.' ` , • Mr. - Seri
vitt!) stated that het,had,received reliable
tufotinatiothet Cartis was not. one of
the. Willits in' ahargs'ol the 'jury at the
time the Evening Critic was taken from
the room by Snyder, but a man named
Sheir was in charge; that hekpew about
the paper, and that he communicated
'With a Peng:44 whom he. (Scoville) could .
aaq asn witness, that the fact us to
that paper came out ho would hive to
lump the town." .
Mr. Scoville raid that he [nerdy men
tioned this to show the - importance', of
the court entering into some 'examiner
lion. '
The; District Attorney protested
against the case being 'postponed on ea'
count of any anonymous letter which•
Mr. Scoville might receive. It would
be highly improper for the Court to go
into any examination of the matter,
Curtis had sworn that he was the bailiff
and the jurora had sworn to the same
fact. It would not be proper' to 'put
them on , trial.
JudgriCox then, proceeded to render
his decisiOn, which was listened to at-
tentively from beginning to end. He ,
said that the motion to set aside the
verdict and- grant a new trial had been
based on various grounds, may two of
which were made the subjects Hof discus
sion and need to be cousidered. by the
Court._ !the first groundi in substance
was that certain newspaPer Matter calcu,- 1
lated; to prejudice the min I of the jury
against the prisoner was founfpi one of
the - rooms assigned to the jury and
passed' under their - examination and in
spection. The first testimoui relied
upon in support ot this alleged ground
was the affidavit of Snyder to.the 'effect
that a certain paper was found by him
in one of the rooms occupied by the
jury. To the mere fact that
_in the lib-.
seuce - of the jury a paper, of whatever
character, was found in the vacant
room, the Court could , attach no signifi
cance or weight, for the reason that it
was -within the power of anybody to
place the paper there. It was within
the power of any friend of the prisoner
to do 80. It was in the power of the
affiant himself - to ; do so: He might have
placed it there and. afterward folind it,
and that fact would not be inconsistent
with the truth of the affidavit. As for
the handwriting there were circumstan
ces that made it, improbable that the
jurors w -etc their names on the paper.
The jurors swore that -they did not do
so and that -no such paper was in the
room at all. They -swore that they bad
not read any paper. Be had not the
slightest ground for suppecting the in
tegrity or veracity of these gentlemen;
who made this statement. SO far as the
db-covery of new evidence is concerned,
the evidence to be introduced is as to
the prisoner's manner and appearance i
prior to the assassination. , If there had
been no evidence introduced upon this
Subject, there might :be some force in
the request; bat a dozen or more , wit
nesses testified on the trial es to his
manner ;and appearance covering the
period of time from March until the
commission of the act. The evidence
now sought. Or be introduced would be
merely cumulative and would not affect
the verdict.' It was further alleged that
the &duke might be able to piove that
one of the expert witnesses had admitted
since the trial that his opinion vao dif
lerent from-that which he had Oven at
the trial. It was a general rule that
'newly-discovered evidence going to im
peach a witness was not a ground for a
new trial under any circumstances, but
least of all when it went to adinissimis
of a witness tlfter the couelusien of ,the
trial. That would place it in the po..ver
of any witness to ' set aide a ver iict
founded upon his own testimony after
the trial was over ; ; No evidence of 'Hut
kiiKkeonld be considered by the Court
in regard to a new trial. He had' con
sidered all tee matters which had been
prefiented and was compelled to overrule
the motion for a new trial.
Mi.L. Scoville noted an 'exception to
the ruling of the. Court.
Mr. Scoville then stated that he un
derstoed, under section 845 of the
ed statutes, that he-had until the next
term to - file - his bill of exceptions.
The Court.' No, not exactly that.
There, is no particular time fixed 'for
prepariug the exceptions. The term
will be kept open. - _ "
Mr. Scoville. - How tong will I have?
The Court. The term will he kept
open is long ua you desire.

advantage shall be taken of me. I' ex-

bailiffs, who were endeavoring to 124)-

nor for anybody else.
Mr. Scoville. I move to postpone
the find execution of lodgment in this
case to a reasonable time beyond the
next term of court, not exceeding thirty
days after the end of atria term.

You have been convicted of a crime
so terrible in its circrimstancea and so
far reaching its results that it has drawn
upon you the horror of the whole civil
ized world and.tho eexcratioas of your
countrymen. The excitement produc
ed by such an offense made it no easy
task to secure for you a fair and Jasper
tied trial, but you had the power of the
United - States Treasury and 'of the gov
ernment in your =vice to pt;otect your
-person from violence and to procure
evident:Ns from all parts of the couniry.
You have bad. es fair and impartial a
jury us every assembled in a court of
justice. You have been defended by
contuse' with zeal and devotion that
merit the highest encomium, and I cer
tainly have done my best to secure a
lair_ presentation of the defense. Not
withstanding ,all this you have beeu
found guilty. It would htriPt been a
comfort to many people if . the verdict
of the jury had established the fact
that your act was that of an irrespon•.
sible marl. It would have left the peo
piarthe satisfying belief that , the crime
of political assassination was eomethiog
entirely foreign to. the iinaitutious
and civilization of any country; but
the result has denied them that com
fort. The country ;Will accept it as
a fact that that crime can be commit
ted, and the Court will ;have to deal
with it the highest penalty known to
the crimi nalcode to serve as an exam
ple to others. Your career has been so
extraordinary that people might well
at times have doubted your sanity.
But one cannot but believe` that when
the -crime was' committed you
thoroughly understood , the nature of
the crime and its ponsequences--fGai
teau. I was acting as ,Ped's
and that you bad moral sense and con
science enough to recognize the mord
iniquity of such an act.
Prisoner. That's a matter of opinion.
Your own testimony shows that you
recoiled 'with horror from the idea..
You stay that you prayed ;against it. :
You say that you thought it might be
prevented. This shows that your con
science_ warne3 you Realist it, but by
the wretched sophistry
. of yen _own
mind you worked yourself up against
the protest of your own conscience.
What motive could have induced you
to this act must be a matter of - con
jecture. Probably men will think that
some fanaticism or a morbid desire for
self-exaltaion wash the real inspiration
for the act. " Your own testimony :
seems to controvert the theories of year_
counsel. They have maintained, and
throught honestly, I believe, that you
were driven against your will by an
insane impulse to commit the act, but
your testimony' showed that you de
liberately resolved to do it, and ` that
a deliberate and Misguided will .was the
sole impulse. This may seem ins'anity
to some _persons, but the law , looks
upon it as a wilful crime. . You will
have due opportunity of having any
error I may have committed , during
the course of the trial passed .n ?on
the Court in bane, but meanwhile it is
necessary for me to pronounce the sen
tence of the law that i you be taken to
the common jail of thie District, from
whence you came, raid there be kept
in confinement, anti on. Friday, the 30th
of June, 1882, you bp taken to the place
place prepared for the execution, .with
in ,the walls of said jail, and there, he
'tween the. hours of 12 M. and 2P. M.,

are dead. And may the Lord have

As chairman, for some . years, of the
Senate financer committee, and sub
sequently as Secretary of the Treasury,
he has had an, experience in thp field of
rational finance which no other man
now living has enjoyed. , His opinions
and suggestions with regard to finan
cial legislation are therefcire entitled to
much weight. In his speech in the
Senate. last Thursday he declared. in
view of,his experience as Secretary of
the Treasury, that. numerous changes
ought to be made in the tariff,—reduct
tions as well as simplications. He
thought the annual surplus revenue of
the goveinment ought to be cut down
by $60,000,000, thrOugh redaction of
taxation. He would abolish all internal
taxation except that on spirits, beer
and tobacco, thus cutting off from $15,-
000,000 to $18.000,000, and would take
from $40,00,000 to $50,000,000 off from
the customs. - He believed in lightening
the burden 'of taxation wherever and
whenever it could be safely 'done:—
