THE Pittsburgh Dispatch came to us
last week in a new dress and changed
to an eight-page paper, cat and trimmed
in good style. It has also made ar
rangements to have the earliest news

of the Dispatch editors is in advance of
its cotemporaries and is worthy of all
commendation and patronage.
A CORRESPONDENT of the Millerstown
Herald, of last week, pats the contest
going on for Congress in this county
"Robinson is making desperate ef
forts to carry this county at the com
ing Primaries, bat McJankin will beat
him 1,000 votes. Cameron—Kemble
salt Robinson's goose for him. Any
man who favored the pardon of these
roosters need never look an honest
buckwheat in the face."
Hon. J. D. MCJUNKIN, candidate
for Congress in this district, is a resi
dent of Batler, where be is actively en
gaged in the practice of his profession.
He is a first-class lawyer and a gentle
man of caltare, possessing an abund
ance of sound common sense, anited
with fine business qualifications and
unimpeachable personal integrity. He
is not a wire-working politician, but a
strong partizan, inflexible in principles,
and incorruptible, and would make
such a representative as the Republi
cans of this district would delight to
honor. He will recieve many votes in
this community.— Petrolia Record,
THERE is some absurd talk about
that Grant will gain more than he will
lose by the abrogation of the unit rule;
that there are a number of Grant dele
gates tied up by instructions from their
States for Blaine. This is all moon
shine. There isn't, so far as we have
been able to learn, a Blaine delegate
elected to the Chicago convention who
hasn't a Blaine district behind him, and
there are a good many delegates for
Grant, who have anti-Grant dis
tricts behind tbem. It is said
that perhaps if Blaine does not make
opposition to the unit rule he may get
the entire vote of Pennsylvania, for
Senator Cameron has been given notico
that the Philadelphia delegates are for
Blaine, but will observe the unit rule
if Cameron will abandon Grant and go
for Blaine. This hasn't even the con
sistency of moonshine. If the dele
gates from Pennsylvania are for Blaine
tot them vote for him, and let those
who are for Grant vote lor him, but we
hope tbey will all let the unit rule go
to the infernal regions, or the Cincin
nati convention, which is only a short
remove therefrom. The Republican
party wants no such tyranny about its
house.— Crawford Journal.
ONLY two States are yet to choose
delegates to the National Republican
Convention, Louisiana, 16 votes, and
Colorado fi, being but 22 delegates
vet to be chosen. The friends of Gen.
Grant claim be has already enough to
nominate him on the first ballot. But
this is claiming a solid vote for him
under the "unit rule," from New York,
Pennsylvania and Illinois. This we
still hope and believe will not be al
lowed. Should he be nominated by
this unheard of wrong it at once pre
sents a most serious question to the
Convention, and to what we believe, a
great majority of the Republican peo
ple of the Nation.
THE great contest at Chicago, says
the Crawford Journal, will be over
the Unit Rule. Any Pennsylvania del
egate representing a Blaine district
who votes for the enforcement of that
rule, which will make him a cipher
in the Convention, disfranchise bis
district, and permit one man to throw
the entire vote of the State, will vio
late a solemn trust. A delegate to be
a Blaine man must vote for a Blaine
candidate for chairman, and then
against a rule which will stifle bis
vote as a delegate. The unit rule has
never been adopted in a National Re
publican Convention. There is neither
precedent nor justification for it, and
any delegate from this State who votes
for it votes to disfranchise himself and
Be on Guard.
We caution the Republican voters
of the county to be on their guard as
to last hour reports at the coming pri
mary. Desperate candidates for nom
ination, knowing that they are mis
trusted, have and may start falsehoods
on their competitors when too late to
be contradicted. All that is good or
bad of a candidate is generally known
soon after he is announced, and it is
only the candidate that fears defeat,
and seeks improper means for his own
sake, who will put or cause to be
put in circulation any unfair or untrue
stories about his opponents.
A Safe Rule.
If a representative betrays his peo
ple once, that was his fault; but if
allowed to betray them twice, that
will be their fault. Apply this to the
contest for the Congressional nomina
tion in this county, to be decided on
next Saturday, and we do not see how
there can be any doubt as to the result.
If a majority decided to again trust a
candidate who once violated pledges
it must be that the people have
changed, or have forgotten, or are in
different as to their own interests and
Blaine and Growo —in Lancaster
The Republicans of old Lancaster
county, this State, held their Primary
election last Saturday. Iu accordance
with a resolution of their County
Committee they voted upon the ques
tions of the Presidency and the
United State Senator to lie elected
by the Legislature next winter. This
was in addition to voting for their
candidates for county officers. The
result is that Blaine has beaten Grant
in old Lancaster county from three to
four thousand votes, and Grov»-e, for
next United States Senator, beats
Quay just about as many.
A False Report.
We understand that it is being cir
culated that the County Committee at
its last meeting passing a resolution
allowing Democrats to vote at the
Primaries on Saturday. This is abso
lutely false. No such thing was
done. The matter was talked of by
some men here in the Committee, but
no action taken on it. Our old rule is
therefore in force, as we said last week.
That rule says, None but Republicans
shall he allowed to role. It is still iu
force, and it only. If the Committee
had changed it the change would havo
been published So let the Republi
cans be on their guard, and not believe
any reports or orders on this point, let
them come from what quarter they
may. Some candidates are said to be
arranging to get Democratic votes at
the coming Primary and asserting the
Committee allowed it, and hence we
again contradict it and caution all.
Let there be a fair Republican primary,
and let there also lie good and honest
Republicans sent in as Return Judges
with the votes. This latter is very
important, and we hope good men
will be selected as the Return Judges
from all the districts to the County
Next Saturday is the day for the
Republicans of this county to meet and
decide among themselves who of the
different candidates, for the different
offices to fill this fall, they think the
best to put in nomination. We decide
by the popular vote, and the candidate
having the greatest number of votes is
entitled, under our system, to a nomin
ation—if all is fairly done. How im
portant then the primary is, must be
seen by all. No Republican wants to
vote in the fall for a bad or unfit candi
date for any office. The way to pre
vent such from being nominated is for
all to turn out to the primary. The
great mass of the voters are presumed
to be intelligent and honest, and to
have only the public good at heart.
The Republicans of Butler county have
the honor and credit of their party and
their county at heart, and they want
faithful and competent persons to rep
resent them in the legislative halls and
in all places. If they have made mis
takes in the past they do not want to

IT is said that eertain Democrats of
Butler have promised the Cameron
ring a heavy vote at the primaries in
this place next Saturday. If this is
true the consideration will show itself
in time. In the meantime the Millers
town Republicans should be consulted
The above we find in the Millerstown
Herald, of last Saturday, and insert
here for the purpose of calling the at
tention of the Republicans of that place
to the same. We hope there may be
no foundation for it, yet we have other
wise heard the same report, and there
fore take occasion to Fay to all inter-
I ested, that a Democratic vote cast at
Millerstown, or any other place, at our
Primaries on Saturday, will only get
the candidates profiting by it into
trouble. The "Cameron ring, 'as used
in the above, means Mr. Thomas Rob
inson and some of the wire-workers in
his interest. Let there be a fair and
square Republican vote cast and all
will be well. The present Republican
vote of Millerstown and Donegal town
ship is pretty well known, and is not
the half of what it was some two years
ago. More than half of all parties have
left that section for the upper oil re
gions within the last two years, and
the true Republican vote of Millerstown
and Donegal township can now l»e as
well defined as in other sections of the
county. So let it be seen that the "cer
tain Democrats of Butler" caunot fulfill
The Republican Convention for the
State of Illinois assembled at Spring
field, that State, on last week, and af
ter methods even worse than those
adopted in Pennsylvania, instructed
the whole delegation of the State to
vote as a unit in the Chicago National
Convention for Qen. Grant. In place
of letting the counties of the different
districts of the State name the dele
gates they wished to represent them
in the National Convention, many of
whom were for Blaine, the Convention,
having a small Grant majority in it,
passed a resolution giving its Chair
man power to appoint a committee to
name all of the delegates to the Chica
go Convention, and the consequence
was, an entire Grant delegation. The
vote by which this greatest of any out
rage we have yet seen was done, was
close, being 389 for to 340 against. It
seems to us that after that vote Gen.
Grant should have immediately caused
his name to be withdrawn from the
contest. This was in his own State,
where he now is, and with all the in
fluence of State pride and of such aids
as Senator Logan, but little more than
a majority of the State could be forced
into his support. As we said last week,
if he is nominated at Chicago by the
enforcement of this odious "unit rule"
in Illinois, and upon the Pennsylvania
and New York delegations, then we
look for trouble. If, on the other hand,
he is nominated fairly, all could cheer
fully support him. This action in Illi
nois may cast the nomination in his fa

What an Independent Paper Says.
The Petrolia Uncord, published at
Petrolia, this county, is independent
in politics and can therefore have only
the public good in view. In its issue of
last week in referring to the Republi
can primaries, now soon to come oft", it
makes the following suggestions which
are worthy just now of a reading by
the Republicans of this county :
"Our first suggestion is iu regard to
the necessity of giving a proper con
sideration of the fitness of candidates.
Let it be understood, to begin with,
that no person can have any "claim"
worth a moment's consideration to any
office in the gift of his party that is
not founded first of all on personal fit
ness and qualification. By fitness we
mean that he must be possessed of such
downright and upright integrity as
will render it sure that he will be proof
against all corrupting influences. By
qualifications we mean a degree of in
telligence and ability sufficient for the
creditable discharge of the duties of
the office sought. No claim founded
only on previous service to the party
should bo entertained by a voter for a
momeut, if these prerequisites are
wanting in tho person who solicits
support. It may help voters to decide .
whom they ought to support, if they j
will remember that the question for
them to decide is not between the
"claims" of the different claimants,
but between the different claimants
! and the DEMANDS OE THE OFFICE If
the voters of both parties would follow
this suggestion, they would soon put
an end to the disgraceful system of
ring rule aud "machine government."
; A disregard of it will make a reform
of the shamefully corrupt practices in
connection with our public service im
possible. Let voters disregard all
"claims," then, except that of the per
sonal fitness of the person who solicits
Our second suggestion is in regard
to the importance of every voter, of
both parties, with whom earnest gov
ernment outweighs all other considera
tions, attending the primary elections
of their respective parties. Be sure
that the "ring" will have out all the
force it can muster. If honest men do
not turn out and defeat them at the
primaries, then none but riug candi
dates will be nominated. Let no hon
est voter, then, absent himself from
the primary election of his party, for
it is there alone that ring rule can be
After Illinois What?
The Illinois Republican Convention
concluded its delicate task yesterday
by electing 42 Grant delegates to the
National Convention. This was done
in the grand style which so well befits
the political boss. Senator Logan had
played u[on the discords of the Con
vention so lightly that they were al
most transformed into harmonies, yet
at the same time he consumated an
outrage which must literally astound
those who have imagined hitherto that
the popular voice is omnipotent.
Many of the National delegates in Il
linois bad been chosen by their dis
trict constituency. These, unless they
were elected to support Gen. Grant,
were coolly tossed aside by the com
mittee of 10 Grant men to which was
allotted the sacred duty of making up
the roll of 42 delegates, and none were
appointed except those who could be
trusted. Delegates elected by the peo
i pie were virtually told to go back to
their constituents and tell them that
Mr. Logan's committee did not choose
to recognize their authority.
But where will the Third-Termers
get 400 votes upon the first ballot ?
Giving Mr. Grant every State south of
Mason and Dixon's Line, with the del
egates of New York, Pennsylvania and
Illinois intact, and he will have but
418 votes, which is only 39 more than
the number required for a nomination.
Now, glancing over the estimates made
by the Grant calculators we find they
concede 41 anti-Grant votes in the
South, which is two more than enough
to offset the 39 majority gained by giv
ing Pennsylvania, New York, Illinois
and the Solid South to Gen. Grant.
But the Grant calculators also claim
20 votes in Indiana, Wisconsin and
Massachusetts, and the auti-Third-
Termers will have to counterbalance
these by securing a similar number in
Pennsylvania, New York or Illinois,
or from the South in excess of the 41
which are already conceded by the
(irant men to Blaine and Sherman. So
far we have taken their own figures.
Now, let us dispute with tbem the
complete delegations of Pennsylvania
and New York, and we find that a
change of 10 votes from their column
to the anti-Third-Term column will dis
sipate the majority of 20 figured out.
Can these 10 votes be secured '( We
are assured they can, for more than
that number of delegates in this State
alone have solemnly declared that they
will not support the Third Term can
didate, to say nothing of nearly as
many similar declarations of New
York delegates of the most emphatic
character And the unit rule will not
help them, for its adoption would only
benefit them in New York and Penn
sylvania, while it would lose them in
other States more than they would
gain in these two. We do not yet see
that the anti-Third-Tenn men have
reason for despondency, but on the
other hand, the above figures which
are mainly based on Grant estimates,
show that there is every reason for
cheerfulness, proving conclusively, as
they do, that Gen. Grant cannot be
nominated on the first ballot, upon
which his friends place all their de
Census of 1883.
The work of taking the census will
begin in June, and beads of families
will do well to prepare themselves for
a vigorous "pumping," as it will be
the duty of the enumerators to find
out the name of each person in the
family ; the color, sex and age of each
person ; the relationship of each person
to bead of family ; what persons are
single, if any, were married during the
census year; get a statement of the
sickness or temporary disability of any
person at the time of the enumerator's
visit; if there be any blind, deaf and
dumb, idiot, insane, maimed, crippled
or bed-ridden persons in the family :
how many attend school within the
census year; if there are any who can
not read or write ; the place of birth of
each person and that of his or her
father or mother.
All persons will be included in this
enumeration who are living on June
I, 1880, as well as members of fami
lies who may die after that time, but
children who are born after that date
will lie omitted, 'ihe questions as to
occupation and the ability to read and
write are not to be asked with regard
to childred under tea years of age.
Tha Liability of National Banks for
A quite recent decision by tho Uni
ted States Supreme Court in an action
against the First National Hank, of
Carlisle, Pennsylvania, settles one
thing, viz: that a National Hank may
as a part of its legitimate business, re
ceive special deposits of securities, etc ,
either with or without compensation,
ami that whether it is or is not paid
for the service rendered, the bank will
be liable for the loss of such securities
resulting from negligence. In the case
referred to, the complainant had depos
ited with the bank for safe keeping $4,-
000 in United States bonds. The cash
ier gave a receipt for them, ami was iu
the habit of cutting oil" the coupons as
they became due, collecting them and
placing the proceeds to its credit on the
books of the bank. The officers of the
bank were accustomed to receive like
deposits from other persons. No charge
was made for this service. The bank
was a bailee without reward. These
facts were known to the Directors. The
plaintiff's bonds were stolen, and suit
was brought for their value. The jury
found that the offi ers of the bank were
cognizant of all the material facts rcla
ling to the receiving and keeping of
the deposits, and that the loss was due
to gross negligence on the part of the
officers. On these facts, the Supreme
Court holds the bank liable. If a bank,
says the opinion, be accustomed to take
such deposits as the one here in ques
tion, and this is known aud acquiesced
in by the Directors, and the property
deposited is lost by the gross negli
gence of the bailee, a liability ensues
in like manner as if the deposit had
been authorized by the terms of the
charter. But, apart from general prin
ciples, the National Banking act frees
the question f rom doubt. This declares
that after the lailure of a National
Bank to pay its circulation notes, etc.,
"it shall not be lawful for the associa
tion suffering the same to pay out any
of its notes or bills, or otherwise pros
ecute the busines of banking, except to
receive and safely keep moneys belong
ing to it, and to deliver special depos
its." This implies clearly in the opin
ion of the Supreme Court, that a Na
tional Bank, as a part of its legitimate
business, may receive such "special de
posits," and th's implication is as ef
fectual as an express declaration of the
same thing would have been. "We do
not mean," says the Court, that a Na
tional Bank can convert itself into a
pawn-broker's shop." But it is un
doubtedly authorized to receive such
securities as United States bonds, and,
whether paid or not, is bound to exer
cise due diligence for safe keeping.
FUNERAL OP REV. BREADEN.
The funeral of Rev. W. P. Breaden
took place on Saturday, May 10th,
1880, at 10 o'clock. A long procession
of people followed his remains from the
house to the church where he so long
preached. The church was filled to its
utmost capacity by the people of his
charge and the community. Of the
members of the Presbytery there were
present: Revs. Kerr, Jamison, Shaw,
Ewing, Clark, McElree, Young, Gilfil
lan, Ferguson and Black. There were
also present Revs. Coulter and Mar
shall, of the Presbyterian Church, and
Revs. Clyde and Graham of the M. E.
After singing and reading the Scrip
tures by Rev. Clark, some opening re
marks were made upon "The True Min
isterial Character and its Reward,"
from 1 Peter 5, 2-4. It was affirmed
that Father Breaden filled out in a very
large measure the description there
given. After this, opportunity was
given for voluntary remarks by the
brethern present, which was at once
Rev. Jamison spoke of the large con
gregation gathered to pay respect to
him. It proved the truth of that word :
"Them that honor me I will honor."
He was one who lived under an abid
ing sense of the presence. He remem
bered, "Thou, God seest me." He was
a noble man, a good citizen, a good
preacher—to know him was to honor
llev. Clark was associated with him
22 years. Father Breaden Moderated
the call for him, examined him, assist
ed with communions. He would hold
him in fond remembrance. His modes
ty, humility, tenderness, were to be
admired. His preaching was solid,
substantial food; his prayers were
characterized by great solemnity. He
was an example in conscientious fideli
ty to all his appointments.
llev. Kerr knew him for 20 years.—
There are three things that comfort UM
to-day: 1. The life he lived. 2. The
death he died. 3. His destiny. He
was the last ministerial brother who
talked with him and to him he gave a
message for the Presbytery. Scarcely
able to speak and urging himself to
the effort, he took Mr. Kerr's hand and
said : "Tell the brethren of the Pres
bytery, 1 die having no confidence in
flesh, placing my hope only in the
atonement of Christ anil in that faith
I expect to pass safely into eternity.
Tell them I expect to meet them all in
llev. McKlree spoke of him as an
Israelite indeed, in whom was no guile
—of the purity of his life and his tri
umphant death. In whom was illus l
trated, ' Thou shalt come to thy grave
in full age, like as a shock of c"*n
cometh in his season."
llev. Clyde of the M. church, had
but brief acquaintance, but felt con
strained to give testimony to the de
ceased father's worth.
llev. Brown was touched with his
valedictory words to the presbytery,
and saw in his experience the power of
llev. Ewlng said he would be
missed not only in his family and in
the congregation, but in our families.
He was one who took an interest in
the children anil they loved to receive
his kindly greeting.
Father Coulter of the Presbyterian
church, said with much apparent
feeling, "I have lost a friend.
I am almost afraid to say a word
The words of appreciation spoken
are such as ought to be said. I
learned to love him. People have heard
me say during the last ten days,
'There was no man in the world that I
loved like Brother Broaden.' I loved
to talk with him, pray with and hear
Rev. Black said he was the first
minister he ever knew. To him he was
the ideal of a christian gentleman ami
a minister of (iod.
Father Coulter then led in prayer,
a psalm wus sung and after the con
gregation took a last look at their la
mented pastor, his btxly was laid in
the corner of the church-yard hard by
the church, to await the Redeemer's
appearing. The services were long—
two hours or more in length, yet the
congregation showed no signs of wear
iness, Many eyes were wet with tears
as some touching reminiscences were
spoken of. It was a solemn, sad day,
yet a day of spiritual refreshment. We
do not often look upon our departed
father's like. He has now gone up
higher and well will it be for the
church if his mantel falls upon others,
who will imitate him in his diligence,
willingness to labor, his modesty, gen*
tleness, guilelessneas and faith In

WORTII TOWNSHIP, May 18, 1880.
EDITORS CITIZEN— Not having seen
anything in your paper from Worth
township, I thought I would write a
few lines to satisfy any auxietf that
may exist in the minds of some per
sons with regard to our welfare. We
have been having quite a warfare, as
is gcnerall}- known, and what seems
most strange, out of all the assaults
and batteries, trespass, and false im
prisonments, there has not been one
person deprived of life or limb, or in
fact anyone hurt, unless it was one of
the lowlanders who wanted the Pro
fessor who lectured on Phrenology
over among the rocks, to feel his dog's
head. But the Professor's hands as
well as his mind seems to have been
worried considerably, and he adopted
a large hickory cane he had on the oc
casion. Whether he intended to feel
the dog's or the lowlanders head is not
known, but be that as it may the hick
ory lit on the lowlanders snoot, who
dropped the dog and immediately took
to feeling his own head, no doubt
thinking it was a good plan to be inde
pendent. The lowlanders held council
and declared war and the Professor
had to stay in the School house all
night. War has been going on in other
parts also. We do not know whether
the authorities intended to adopt the
martial law or not, but they adopted
some kind of law by which they dep
utized a certain young man for the pur
pose of taking another, which he tried
to do without success. Then to have
revenge be got three or four others, and
proceeded to take his brother, which
they done without losing a man. The
people are very outspoken on political
matters. They do not endorse the
proceedings of the Pennsylvania Par
don lJoard. They do not like, and have
a very bad feeling toward the Came
ron ring and they are going to give
vent to their feelings at the coming pri
mary election by defeating oue of
Cameron's imps. W. L.
