Tile Citizens Reform candidates'
were, a majority of them, successful
in lust Tuesday's municipal election
in Philadelphia, against ' the ring
candidates of both parties. The
most . prominent Republicans as well
'as Democrat - joined hands with the
Committee of One Hundred in their
efforts to take -the city government
out of the hands of a corrupt ring,
in which is included both Republi
cans and Democrats, which has cor
ruptly ruled the city for mi.ny years,
and their efforts were successful.
The result is significant as a warning
to political manipulators and bosses,
that the rights of the people can no
- longer be trampled upon with im
punity. The temper of the people
has become aroused, and they will
not tolerate unjust usurpation' of
' their rights. While there are no
great political issues upon which,
parties are divided, to agitate the ,
public mind and rallithe masses to
the support of party nominations,
they are turning their attention more
especially to the . subject of reform,
both in party methods and in official
character. A convention that Wes
not fairly-reflect the sentiment of I . ; a
majority of the party, but is conduct
ed under the personal direction ,of
party bosses to make nominations
that do not meet the approval of the
masses of the party, will only invite
certain defeat at-the polls, while, if a
spirit of fairness - is manifest, and the
_- rank and file of the party can be
made satisfied that their rights are
respected in the action of the con-
Nention, thete will be no trouble in
rallying t h eir to the support of the
ticket. In this view it is important
that every effort be made to so con
duct the) primary councils of the
party as to promote harmony and
unity in - the party action.
Chairman W. J. Young has called
a meeting of the Republican Stand
ing 'Committee, to be held on Tues
day, March 14th, at the Court House
in Towanda, Pa, The object of the
meeting is to fix the time and place
for a County Convention. - The
Convention will be held for the pur
pose of electing delegates - to the
State Convention, to be held at Har
risburg on the 10th of May. The
calling of a County Convention is Ta
very proper move, considering the
party differences that have existed,

WAIIIIINGTOII, D. C. Fob. rib. 1E82•
This being the day set apart in pur
suance of a rconcurrent resolution of
Congress for the memorial services on
the death of the lamented late Presi
dent;James A. Garfie d, , a brilliant
audience composed of Senators and
Representatives in Coivress, the Presi
dent, Vice-President and members of
the Cabinet, ex-Senators, eX-Represen
tative.s, the Chaplains of the Senate and
House, the Diplomatic corps, Judges
Of the Supreme Court and of the
Court of Claims, the General'and other
prOminent officers of the Army, the
Admiral and other :t.prominent officers
of the Navy, their ladies . and other
invited guests asseipbled in the Hall of
Representatives at 12 o'clock, to-day.
The seating capacity of the floor and
galleries of the House is about fifteen
hundred. Therefore the Committee of
amngements were compelled to limit
the number of admission tickets to that
number. No person was admitted
inside of the Capitol to-day -except
those holding tickets of admission. _
The officers and employes of both the
,Senite and House were given tickets
of admission' inside the -building, but
these were taken up at the . door when
they entered, and they were compelled'
to run their chances of getting within
ear-shot of the 'orator of the occasion.
By, the courtesy of the gentlemanly
Sergeant-at-Arms of the House,
Gea. W. Hooker, who had 'charge of
- carrying out the arrangements, the
officers and employes were given stand - -
ing room_on the floor of the Hour in
the rear of the seats. Your corres
pondent took advantage of this Privi
lege to listen to the address. No ladies .
were admitted to the floor of the House,
but the galleries presented a grand
galaxy of- female beauty and refine
It was eminently befitting the `occa
sion that the Committee of arrange
ments made choice of the greai Pre
mier of the Garfield Cabinet to deliver
the,memorial address. The House was
called `to order by the Speaker at 12
o'clock, noon. Aftar the.lapse of five
minutes the President of the Senate,
Senators and Chaplin came in and
' were conducted to the seats assigned
The President of the Senate occu
pied the Speaker's Chair and;presided
during the exercises, while the Speaker
of the House sat at his lett. The
entire endience had now become seated.
The orator of the occasion, ex-Secre
tary of State James G. Blaine, occur-
pied an elevated seat on the platform
in front of the Speaker's desk. Presi
dent Arthur occupied a front seat' in
the centre of the circle immediately in
front of Mr. Blaine. - While the au
dience was assembling the Marine
Band, the members of which were
seated in the House reception room in
the rear of the Hall, the_ doors commu
nicating being thrown open, discoirsed
funeral dirges. All being in readiness,
and the audience seated, the doors of
the galleries and of • the House were
closed, and perfect silence prevailed._
The Chaplain of the House, Rev.
F. D. Power stepped into the desk. of
the'Speaker. and offered a most solemn
and impressive prayer. The presiding
officer then presented the orator of the
day. Mr. Blaine rose, while all eyes
were turnetrupon him, and in a grace
ful and impressive manner began his
address. At first he seemed slightly
embarrassed by . the trying ordeal which
he was passing before the Aniericiin
people. This soon wore off and he
spoke with his usual fluency and ease.
Though his hair has become somewhat
frosted, those who heard him on this
great occasion will testify that he has
lost none of his intellectual or physical
vigor. The address, an outline of
which it is impoSsible to give here, was
a grand and truthful tribute to the
memory of the lamented martyr Presi
dent. He gave in detail the incidents
of his busy and useful life, in which
fully rounded, was presented the high- ,
est type of American manhood. The
rapidly changing events of the past
two years within which the American
`people had called to the. highest office
Vhthin their gift one of the most
trusted of her eminent citizens, a man
who in a life of fifty years had risen
from the humblest condition and by
his own inherent manhood and grand
personal qualities had become the trust
ed one of the Nation, were eloqiiently
presented. Such a life had been
ruthlessly taken by the hand of an as
sassin in whose forty years of life was
presented a record of infamy unequalled
in history. About one hour and a
half was occupied in the delivery of the
address, to which the profoundest
attention was 'given. Those who
anticipated any sentiment by the great
orator that could be distorted into an
expression of personal, party or
,politi- .
cal malice were . disappointed.. Mr.
Blaine is too astute to do violence to
the proprieties of the occasion by in
dulging in any utterances of such a
nature. At the close of the , addreis
the Marine Band played a dirge, when
the : audience was dismissed with a bene
diction pronounced by the Rev. J. J.
Bullock, Chaplain of the 'Senate. We
heard nothing but praise of the orator
and the address. From many a lip
came the expression: "James G. Blaine
is.thl grandest public :inan of the pres
ent age 1" "It will leabe its impression
on the minds of the Axiieriean people I"
1 -The memorial irddrelii will be pub
lished by Congreas for distribution by
members, and will go into the archivis
of Congress there to be preiented as
one of the memorable historical events
of the present century._
President Arthur took the country
by surprise on Friday last by sending
to the Senate the 'nomination of Elora;
RoScoe Conkling to be a Justee of the
SuPreme Court of the United States.
Not one of the Senators, it is said, had
an intimation of the. President's in
tentions. In this cis e • President
Arthur-has departed from his usual
caution exercised in regard to appoint
ments. His method of consultingspub
lie opinion prior to conferring appoint
ments, by waiting for a response from
the people in reference to the applicant
before ; ticting upon his. 'case, was: de
parted from in the case of Mr. Conk
ling. The speculations of politicians
here as to, the motives oi the President
in conferring this appointment upon
the New York ex-Senator, are various
and quite amusing. -An objection
under the rile, by Senator Hoar ' sent
the nomination to the Judicary Com
mittfe, and it will not be acted:upon
before to-morrow. While there are
several Senators Opposed to the ap
pointment, there is no doubt expressed
of his confirmation when the qiiistion
come: up in Executive session. The
appointment is looked upon with favor ,
by anti-Conkling Republicans, lor the
reason, as they express it, that it-"re
tires him frank politics," and will tend to
harmoniie the party in New York. Yet
they aver that his appointment; so soon
after his pronouned rejection by the
- Legislature and people of New York
for re-election to - the Senate, is is an
insult to the prevailing sentiniemt of
opposition in his own State. But the
question: , Will he accept ? still' remains
unsettled. , The preponderence of pub
tic opinion here appeals to be l'; that he
will not. I There is no doubt expressed
of his integrity or his Capacity to ' fill
the position with credit. There can be
no sufficient reasons urged against his
confirmation. We , hope he j will be
confirmed and accept.
The demand upon the piesent Con
gress facWislate upon the subject _of'
railroati-transportation is more press
ing than at any preyious session. Me
morials from State legislatuies and
petitions numerously signed lby the
people come to members from sec
tions of the country demanding, restric
tive legislation for the protection of
individual rights against the ,exorbitant
exactions of railroad corporations in
the matter of traffic and travel. The
Committes on Commerce haVe heard
arguments during the past week, pro
and con upon this subject. The im
portant railrcad companies have been
represented by theia paid attorneys
who have made able arguments against_
-the right of Congress to legislate upon
the subject. Hon. Wayne MacVeag
of.Pennsylvanin, as the attorney of the
Nnusylvania Central, and Emery 4.
Storrs of Chicago, as attorney for the
Illinois Central made lengthy and
labored arguments against the constitu
tional right of Congress to pass. restric
tive legislation: The people have not.
as yet been-represented by attorneys in
defence of their rights. It is said
however that during the present week,
Judge Black will be heard on their
side of the case before the Committee.
The Reagan bill is the measure upon
which the efforts of the anti-inonopolists
is concentrated in favor - of its passage.
A majority. of the' committee are
thought to be in favor of reporting the
bill favorably to the House. Should
the bill be so reported a warm contest
may be looked f6r in the debates upon
it. The monopolists will not surrender
without a desperate struggle.
The ipiestion has assnmed so much
importance, and the demands of the
people so pressing that the.stibject may
become an important political issue.
The party that arrays ieself on ' the
side of corporations and
,agarrist the
people in the fight will commit. 'a grave
mistake. J. H:

The House Committee 'on Elections

The House Committee on Invalid
Pensions on Friday received a petition
asking that the widow of President
Polk be put on the pensi(M rolls. The
petition states that the;applicant is in

The ,advocateS in Congi.eis of liberal
appropriations for the. Mississippi
improvement, intend to make capital of
the fact that Congress voted $lOO,OOO
for the relief of those whOm the im
provements would protect. - They
claim that it is impossible—for-4e
inhabitants ,in the exposed ,sectioris i
unaided, to build the necessary works.
The Amount Allowed.
WASHINGTON, Feb. 24.—The state
ment published of the amounts allowed
by the committee to audit the expenses
of the sickness and burial, of President
Garfield to the attending surgeons, is
pronounced incorrect by , a member. of
the committee. The amounts allowed
are: Dr.. Bliss, $25,000;' Drs. Agnew
and Hamilton, $15,000 each; Drs.
Reyburn and Boynton, $10,000; Mrs.
Edson, $5,000; Crump, the steward,
$3,000; the , other employes of the • Ex
ecutive Mansion two months extra pay:
The committee agreed to grant Mrs.
Garfield the remainder of her husband - 7s
salary teethe current Year., Messrs.
Blackburn and Springer will submit a
minority report, opposing - most of the
items allowed.

Naw Irons, Feb.

says:- If it were consistent with Mr.
Conkling's character to . be - warped by
merely personal concliderations, from
that disinclination to aceMit judicial
duti.-s, which he signiffed ' , Right years
ago ; the "proceenings of , Senator Hoar
yesterday might have some influence-in
determining his choice when- Grant
nominated Senator 'Hoar's brother to
the place of Associate Justice, Mr.
Conkling opposed his confirmation, and
it was rejected. This allusion to the
motives for the course of Senator Hoar,
is . a sufficient explaniticn of it; but we
regard Mi.. Conkling's sense of profes
sional honor to the, bench, far superior
to such considerations.
The "turky gobbler strut" Nvill be
lost beneath the silk of the Supreme
Court.— Springfield Republican.
The Boston Herald (bid. )says: I
Mr. Conking was ever a, fit man for the
bench, of the Supreme Court he is
none the less so by reason' of hiP recent
mistakes and follies as a politician. It
is not a cardinal crime to differ, or even
to quarrels with a - Prisident. The
nomination is to be i judged- upon its
merits; outside so - far as may he of
political considerations, he is, it is need
less to say, a man of a great intellect
ual ability and force. His - character,
in all that relates to the dignity. -,and'
purity of the bench, is above reproach.
The Balthhore S'un (Ind.) says:' 'lt
must be said in his behalf that although'
not possessed of a judicial -temper or
the wide legal lore of some of his pre
decessors, his reputation for honesty
and, a certain frankness of purposes in
public matters has never been impugn
ed. WlXonkling's career in Congress
extended' through that shameful period
when the hands of almost every promi
nent man of the, dominent party were'
stained with public plunder, yet no
participation in it has ever been
charged upon him.'
The Buffalo, Cotnier says: • "The
nomination was - a surprise, but Mr.
Arthur would not haire made. it with.
out fir 4 ascertaining: that it would be
accepted. Times have changed and,
Mr. Conkling with them. Excluded,
irO - m the Senate pCilitical prizes, • but
unwilling to content , himself with a
minor position, he may have concluded.
that a .place on the Supreme Bench will
suit him best. Mr. Conkling's great
ability is Conceded by all. He is capa
ble-- of rising above partizanship, and
will make an upright -and dignified
The Washing en Republican (Rep.):'
says: "The no. ination 'of . Mr. Conk
ling to the Supreme Reach will call
forth friends and from all respectable
toes only words •of approval. His
spotless ksitegrity, his uneurPtissed
natural gifts, his gieat learning, his
capacity for work, his dignity of char
, acter;_and his national fame make his
appointment one which the country
will unanimously pronounce eminently
fit. It is probnble that he will be con:.
firmed by the Senate unanimously." .f
- The Cleveland Herald begins' its
editorial under the he,ading of "A Dis
astrous Step," With-a sentence charac
terising Preiiidgnt Arthur `s nomination
of Conkling as a "surprise and morti
fication to those Republicans who had
placed confidence in his good sense,"
and concluded a severe series of stmt.
ure(with the words: "We know we
speak fcir the Republicans . of Ohio, and
we believe we do for the whole Repub.

The Boston Post says: The nomi

afar off, the standard President Arthur
seemed to set in the appointmt

Arthur might' have done worse. In
fact, it was rumored for a day or two,
with a show of authority, that he was
