K'»R JI'RY COMMIs>IONER,
.J. "VVei*l«\v Monks,
THE Grand Jury la-t week acted
upon some tsercnty bills, finding some
sixty true ones, and did all this \u
about three and a half days.
IT will be seen by the proceedings
of the Republican County Convention ,
of Monday that less than seven hnn
dre<l votes were ea.-t at the primary 1
election last Saturday. I
POME of the maple tree leave, an- ]
already beginning 1 to color. A week
or two more and the "sear and yellow
leaf" will have come—a renewed re- '
minder of the flight of tirue.
THE request to announce lectures on
National Reform in certain places in
the county, on the evenings of Bth, 9th '
and 1 Oth insts., came too late for inser- i
tion last week and hence too late to be ]
of any service.
THE jubilee services, celebrating the
fiftieth anniversary of the erection of
St. John's Church, (in the western
part of the county), will appear upon
our first page next week, there not be
ing space for them this week.
MB. J. W. MONKS, the successful
candidate for Jury Commissioner, is
one of the best men in the county.
His good standing with his neighbors
induced them to warmly recommend
liim. He will make a discreet and
trustworthy Jury Commissioner.
THE communication of "Schwartz"
in regard to our county fair, came too
late for publication last week. The
sentiments of the writer, in urging
more iuUjx-nt to be taken in our county
fairs, are good, but as the fair has al
ready commenced it would l>e useless
to insert the communication this week.
MB. LUCAS, who was a member of
the Grand Jury last week, was the
tirrtt colored man who ever occupied
that position in this county. Some
two or three colored citizens have
served on traverse juries heretofore,
but Mr. Lucas was the firnt a< a grand
jurf>r, and, what is l>etter in the matter
is, that his f« llow-mcml>ers of the jury
unite in saying that he was a very
good and intelligent juror.
THE Grand Jury at Harrisburg sim
ply did its duty and what every honest
man in the State demanded it should
do, to-wit, find true bills against all
parties charged and proven before it
to have used money or been guilty of
bribery last winter during the sitting
of the Legislature. But when, through
some influence, it was induced to turn
aronnd and present for conspiracy some
of the committee appointed by the
Legislature to prosecute the cases, arid
also other mem tiers of the House of
good reputation, then the j»eople will
say that it is an attempt t > retaliate,
bulldoze or intimidate. The charge
against Mr. Wolfe and -others is that
they played the detective, set a trait,
so to speak, to catch those they sus
pected using or receiving money for
votes. Suppose they did consult and
act together towards that end. Is that
a coruipiracy to do an unlawful act ?
How can two or three innocent per
sons Is: guilty in bringing guilty ones
to justice ? How can an effort to up
bold the very Constitution itself
tortured into a conspiracy ? Cannot
the members of a Legislature who saw
and knew the corrupt nse of money
being made consult together how to
expose it without being liable to the
charge of con*pira.'-i/ 7 This is too
absurd, and the law will protect the
faithful public servants from such ap
parent malice. When the day comes
that the honest cannot ferret out and
bring to punishment the dishonest,
without endangering their own safety,
then we will have come to singular
The dedication services on Sunday
last of the new German Lutheran
Church, of this place, was an event of
more than ordinary interest, owing
principally to the great number of peo
ple present. At 10 o'clock the mem
bers First assembled at the old church
building, corner of Wayne and MeKean
streets, and aft'-r some preliminary ser- ]
vices there, and many expressions of '
farewell regards for the old building in
which they, a« a church, had wor
shipped for now about fjirty years, they
formed into procession and marched to
the new C'hureh building, corner of
Washington and Jefferson streets. |
The procession was the largest, or •
longest at least, ever known in this i
piuee and extended from the old
church to the new one, a distance of
eleven squares. Not less than a thoits- j
and |>crsons were in it, while there were i
many others present hut not joining in '
the procession. At the new church 1
the usual dedicatory services were had (
and preaching in both German and En
glish, Rev. K. Cronenwett, the pastor,
being assisted by his father and Rev. 1
Feltman, of Ohio.
The audience room of the new ,
church is a large one, yet it could not r
seat all present.. The church, how- <
ever, has secured mainly its object in
having more room and a better build- f
ing for its members. We noticed the (
large room was easy to In; heard in, I I
the a'-cou.-tic arrangement* therefore
being good, and while the new build
ing might not come up to the present
standard of the taste of ail, yet a- a
wLole it will stand as a worthy monu
ment of the enterprise and the efforts
of the members of the German Lu
theran Church of B'Jt'er.
103 rd Reg. Reunion.
To-morrow the surviving members
of the 103 rd Iteg. Pa., Volunteers in
the war. will have their first r< union in !
Butler. Proper arrangements have
been made to make the occasion as
pleasant as possible.
The California State election of la-t
week ha- resulted more favorably to
the Republicans than was evc-a ex
pected. A Republican Governor and
three, at least, out of the four mem
bers of Congress, ar • elected, with
perhaps others of the Stat;.- ticket.
The returns are not fully received as
vet, but enough to warrant the claim
of a Republican victory over all the
different parties in the field.
The news from the Maine State
election, held on Monday, is of the
most cheering character, showing Re
publican gains over last year. Ihe
Republican candidate for Governor
will have a large plurality over either
the Democratic or Gre< ;iba< k candi
dates, and possibly a majority over
both. But the Legislature will Is: Re
publican strongly, which will have the
deciding among the candidates fur
Governor in case no one has a majority
over all. This is therefore a gain from
last vear and a decided victory for the
Republicans All hail to Blaine, of
Reception of 11th Reserves.
A meeting of the citizens of the
town of Indiana, J'a., was held in that
place recently to take steps for the
proper reception of the survivors of
the 11th Reg. Pa., Reserves, who
have a reunion there on the 25th of
this month. Committees were ap
pointed to make the necessary arrange
ments, and the citizens of the town of
Indiana will doubtless cordially greet
the survivors of the old 11th and
make them w&lc'ifßc to that place on
the 25th. Two companion from this
county were in the l'th Kescrves, the
survivors of which, we understand, all
intend going the reunion on the 25th.
That Problem Again.
."A i'ti. Editnr.- —2O cent, of
}« r cent, is 2-15lhs. The question
then is: A spent two-fifteenths more
than half of his salary, and had
left; what was his salary? As the
question is punctuated, I answer he
sjs-nt and hi - salary was $12.30.
Proof —Salary $12.30. In 1877 A
spent 15, or half of his salary. In
H7B he spent $0.07, or two-'iftcenths
more than be spent in H77, or two
fifteenths more than $<5.15, or two
fifteenths more than half of hi.s salary.
And s'">-)7 is 20 pt>r oont, of per
cent, (or two-fifteenths) more than
$0.15, or more than half of sl2 .'JO.
The solution of "Xenus" in ikes him
spend s!f.2o 7-1 1, and makes .-alary
$14.53 7-11. But $:».20 7-11 is not
two-fifteenths more than $7.2<; tt-11,
but is two-fifteenths more than 12
and a fraction ; SO the proof fails.
In Brooks' Arithmetic 1 find exam
ple on page 197 : 712 acres is « per
cent, more than half of how many
acres? Answer given, 1,100 acres.
As 6 per cent, is 20 per cent, of thirty
per cent., we may liken it to the salary
question by giving it thus: A sjiends
20 per cent, of 30 per cent, more than
half of his salary, arid haa s*isS left;
wh«t is his salary? Answer, $1,400.
Another example, same page: 231
is 20 per cent, of 25 per cent, more
than what number? Answer given,
220. It. follows that 231 is 20 per
cent, of 25 j>er cent, more than half of
440, just as s';.!»7 is 20 per cent, of
p«f cent, more than half of $12.30.
Example, Golf's Arithmetic, page
304 : A raised 800 bushels of wheat,
which was 25 per cent, more than halt
of what B raised; what did Braise?
Answer given, 1,280 bushels. Change
this to salary: A spent SBOO, which
was 25 p< r cent, more than half of his
salary ; what was his salary ? Answer,
$1,280. Or, A -pent ;'•> percent more
than half of his salary, and had
left; what was his salary? Answer,
$1,280. Or, SBOO is 25 per cent, more
than S«4O, which is half of $1,280
"Xenus" does not seem to recollect
that you can take th«- percentage of a !
fraction, although the que-tion he was j
trying to solve brought it clearly be- :
fore him. One of the meanings of
percentage is: "The name ftpplif) to j

The E-,s:iasii|atiori of Captain Henry
M. Dixon, at Yazoo City, Missibaipjii,
will cause no surprise. It. is in str;<-t
accordance with the Mississippi plan,
and was the logical consequences of
Mr. Dixon's je rsisting in tin; exercise
of his legal political rights in opposi
tion to the wishes of the Confedro- j
Democracy. The full details of the
"Yazoo affair" are fresh in the public '
mind. Captain Henry M Dixon, an
ex-C'onfeilerate soldier, a life-lon'.'
Democrat, and a native born South- j
enter, a short time ago allowed his
name to fie placed on the Independent j
ticket as a candidate for Sheriff 'if
Yazoo county. A mass meeting of
"prominent citizens" was consequently
held arid a committee sent to Mr. '
Dixon to tell him to either renounce!
his candidacy or be killed. He chose
the former course. Afterward, how-,
j ever, the storm of indignation con- j
I ecrning this outrage being so great, j
' he thonght he might venture to once j
I more assert his rights, and he did so, I
! announcing that his renunciation hav- j
i ing befsn extorted by force, he held it
j null and void, mid was till an Inde- j
pendent candidate for Sheriff of Yazoo !
county. He p.istook th<- temper of
the Confedro-Democracy, and the mis
take cost him his life. He was assas- j
sinated in the streets of Yazoo City ,
on the 20th. His assassin was James :
Barkesdale, a relative, in all proba- !
bility, of Hon, Kthel Barkesdale, the ,
chairman of the Mississippi State i
Confcdro-Democratie Committee, and, |
next to Jefferson Davis, the most prolv
liable candidate for United Stabs
Senator from that State.
This is all that was wanting to
make this barbarous outrage complete,
and it may servo as a warning to any
other person who mav rely upon the
hypocritical expressions of regret
which some of the Mississippi pap'-rs J
have indulged in to the extent of ven- .
turing to oppose the Confedro-Deinoe- |
ra'-y. This party captured Mississippi;
with shotguns and revolvers, and
with shotguns and revolvers it holds

Convention met on the 3rd inst., \ ice
President William A. Wheeler was
l«.rmanent President. Being conducted
; tl. chair. Mr. Wheeler made a short I
j speech, in which he said the policy of!
I seeking to starve the Government into i
submi.-sion to rebellion was initiated!
at Fort Sumter, and was again at
i tempted by the Democracy at the late j
; session of Congress. The speech was
a general arraignment of the Demo-1
eratie policy and record during an i ;
since the late war, eulogy of the Re- ,
publican party, and an appeal for con- !
tinning the latter in power in order to ,
to maintain and enforce the results j
achieved bv the sword and to secure j
protection to every citizen in every j
right. regardWs of his color, coadi- j
tion or locality.
Charles E. Smith, Chairman <*S the j
Committee on Resolutions, presented
the following platform which was j
unanimously adopted :
The Republicans of New York. ;
pledging themselves anew to national |
supremacy, equal rights, free elections j
and honest iH'ciey, declare these prin- -
First. The Republic of the United
States is a nation and not a league.
The nation is supreme within its
own constitutional sphere. It is girded
with power to guard its own life, to
protect its own citizens, to regulate its
own elections and to execute its own
laws. The opposite doctrine of State
. .vcreignty is thebancfu! motherof not
ification, sesession and anarchy. The
Republican party stands for national
supremacy in national affairs and State
rights in State concerns; the Democ
racy stand for State sovereignty with j
its own twin heresy, that the union is
a mere confederacy of States.
Second. To refuse necessary sup
plies for the Government with the de
sign of compelling the unwilling con
sent of a co-ordinate and independent
branch to odious measures is revolu
tion. To refuse'appropriations for the
execution of existing and binding
laws is nulification. We arraign the
Democratic Representatives In Con
j gress m guilty both of revolutionary
attempts and of nulifying schemes and
we reprobate their action as calculated
to subvert the Constitution and to
strike at. the existence of the Govern
Third. The safety of the Republic
deinan Is free and pure elections. The
Democratic Congress has attempted
dictation by caucus, by threats of starv
ing the Government and by months of
disturbing agitation to break down the
national election laws. We denounce
this effort as a conspiracy to overthrow
the safeguards of free suffrage, and to
open the ballot box to the unchecked
einination of rifle clubs of the South
and rpneaters of New York. We de
clare our uncompromising opposition to
any repeal of these just protective
laws, and Republican Senators and
Representatives in Congress for their
resistance to this attempt and Presi
dent Hayes for his veto messages de
serve and receive our hearty approval.
Fonrtb- The Republican party
neither justifies net tijlen'tcs; military
interference with election#. It. seeks
onlv to protect the ballot box from the
interference of force or fraud. It re
pels the false charges and de
nounces the false pretenses of the con
spirators who while professing to favor
free elections everywhere, sustain mob
law in the South, while inveighing
against troops at the polls to protect
eiti'/ens, refu.-e to nrobibit armed dobs
from surrounding Ihe ballot box to In
! timidate them, and while affecting that
j soldiers' bayonets will overawe free
! elections, remain silent when the as
sassin's bullet seals the fate of politi
Fifth. We call upon the people to
remember that the Democratic party
forced the extra session of Congress
without warrant or excuse ; that it
prosecuted its partisan purposes by
revolutionary methods; that it persist
ently obstructed resumption, and still
constantly presses disturbing measures;
that it reopened sectional questions
closed by the national triumph, and
threatens the repeal of war legislation j
that its Southern element answers con
ciliation only with violence; that its
hope of success rests alone on the solid
South, and that its triumph would
make the solid South the ruling force
jof the nation. We recognize that the
great body of the people who defended
! the Union, of whatever party name,
are equally patriotic and equally inter
' ested iii fcood government, and wo
! earnestly invoke them to unite in re
' sisting the dangerous designs of the
! party organization under the sway of
' those who were lately in rebellion and
j seek to regain in the halls of legisla
! tion what they lost, on the field of bat
Sixth. The successful resumption
j of tipuulo payments, despite Demo.
' eratie prediction and hostility, is the
crowning element of the Republican
j financial policy. Followed by return
i ing national prosperity, improved cred
! it, refunded debt and reduced intere- l,
lit adds another to to the triumphs
1 which prove that the Republican party
Ii- equal to the highe-t demands. Our
j whole currency should by kept at par
with the monetary standard of the
; commercial world, and any attempt to
i debase the standard, to depreciate
, paper, or deteriorate coin, should be
; iirmfy resisted.
Seventh. The claims of living and
| memories of the dead defenders of the
! nation conjure us to protest against the
! partisan and unpatriotic greed which
; expels old Union soldiers from their
well deserved rewards and advances
Confederate soldiers to tle-ir places.
Eighth. A« the pledge and proof of
its economy in State administration,
the Republican party, in spite of pro
longed Democratic resistance, proposed
and passed constitutional amendments
i which restrict tho expenses of canals
! to their receipts and reform the wholo
system of canal and prison miiuugo-
I ment and by extinguishing public in
debtedness anil relieving the people
from any further tax thereon, it ef
fected a great saving in State taxation.
These fruits of B publican measures,
Democrats have brazenly attempted to
appropriate as their own. Appealing
to the records in support of our decla
ration we pronounce their claims un
founded, and hold up their authors as
The rest of the resolutions relate
exclusively to State affairs.

taken, which resulted in the uomina- :

A Sad Suiciuo.
[Pitt-bnr«h Commercial-Oaiette, Gth '
Yesterday afternoon the city was j
startled by a rumor that Dr. ijainey I
A. Scott, the well-known dentist, had j
• committed a suicide. As the report ;
i rapidly circulated in a short time a
large crowd of people collected in i
front of his residence at No. 278 Penn j
, avenue to learn the facts. A reporter j
immediately- visited the house, and \
j learned that in the morning Dr. Seott |
' had told his wife that he did not feel I
| very weii, and would not get up till i
: noon. He asked Mrs. Scott to go to J
I his oflkes on Fifth avenue and see that j
I everything was attended to. This she j
j eid, and a few moments later Scott
requested the servant to keep the chil- J
I dren quiet, as he wanted to sleep, and
: then locked the door of the room, j
j Some time later in the morning, one )
of the ladies w ho boarded at the house, |
(passed the door and heard Dr. Scott
I breathing very heavily, but did not
think that there was anything wrong.
Shortly after noon Mrs. Scott returned
home to dinner, when she went up
sLairs to the room where the doctor'
was sleeping and knocked repeatedly,
bui received no answer. She then
burst open the door, and, to her infinite
horror, found her husband lying on
the bed with distorted features and
blackened nails, moaning heavily. Dr.
T. W. Shaw was instantly sent for,
and he did everything possible to neu
tralize the effects of the poison which
he had taken. A few moments later
lbs. Dickson, McCann and Foster ar
rived, and an electric battery was se
cured. For two hours the current was
applied without avail. Hypodermic
injections of atropia and ammonia were
administered and cold douches applied,
but to no purpose. Every known rein
ed}' was brought into requisition. A
stomach pump was resorted to, but In
asinuch as Dr. Scott had not partaken
of any food it soon became evident
that the poison had been absorbed.
Pinned to a pincushion on the table a
note was found, evidently written on
the paper which contained the poison,
in the doctor's handwriting' It read
(i «nl hve, my darling Jennie; I will not be
a Imrden t > vmi any 1 mtfor; 1 am gain; where
my wretched tir»ui will be at rest. QI'IKCY.
Despite the unremitting efforts of
, the attending physicians, the doctor
continued to sink slowly, his system
having become thoroughly narcotized,
and last evening at o'clock lie passed
away. Mrs. Scott was almost dis
tracted yesterday afternoon by the sad
affair. She savs that for two months
past the doctor has been in ill health
from a derangement of tl;e stomach,
and has lieen rather dyspeptic and
melancholic. He has been tinder the
treatment of Dr. Pepper, of Philadel
phia, she states. On Thursday even
ing he visited his mother-in-law and
laughed and chatted in the best of
sjiirits, and intended to go to the Ex
position with his wife lost nieijt.
Dr, Shaw was visited, and stated that
his death had undoubtedly resulted
from narcotic poisoning, and that tho
physicians had it that it was morphia
that he had taken. He added that it
was hardly possible that an inquest
would be held, as the physicians had
deemed it unnecessary. Dr Scott was
in his thirty-eighth year, and has been
unusually successful in l)'S prtiCtW.
It i> said, however, t' at latterly he
has not done so well. 1 here is also a
report that he was much depressed in
consequence of two deaths resulting
from the inhalation, it i.- alleged, of
his laughing gas. An inquiry among
his friends shows that there is not one
who can assign a satisfactory reason
for the commission of ihc rash act.
His mother-in-law, Mrs. John Watt,
also could not give any reason other
than that it may have resulted from
depression of spirits on account of ill
health. He recently fitted up an el
egant suite of offices on Fifth avenue,
and until quite recently hail appeared
very sanguine as regards his business
prospect*. He was universally known
and liked in this community, and
leaves a wife, three children and many
friends to mourn his untimely end.
Dr. Scott, it is understood, was dis
charged from bankruptcy on Thursday
