AT Warren, Ohio, last week, it took
General Grant but seven minutes to tell
the reasons why "he is a Republican,'
and yet be covered near tbe whole

LARGEST APPLE. —Mr. Isaac Robb,
of Oakland township, this county,
brought to our office last Friday tbe
largest apple we have ever seen. It
weighs 22 ounces and measures 16
inches around it. It can be seen at our
office. __
Tbe meeting in tbe Court House on
Monday evening last, to hear Mr. Ma
son, of Mercer, and General Beaver, of
Bellefonte, Centre county, Pa., was
quite a success. Hon. A. L. Camp
bell, of Petrolia, presided and intro
duced tbe speakers with some very ap
propriate remarks. Mr. Mason made
an able speech on tbe currency ques
tions and gave his reasons for giving
up tbe Greenback party and joining
the Republican party. General Beaver
made an eloquent and powerful speech
on tbe question of a "solid South,"
warning his hearers of what might be
expected from Democratic success at
this election. A vote of thanks was
given tbe speakers and the meeting ad
journed with three cheers for Garfield
and Arthur. Tbe Citizens' Cornet
Band was present rendering its excel
lent music.
The Importance of tbls Election.
Judge Agnew addressed tbe Repub
licans of Pittsburgh on Tuesday even
ing a week. In his note accepting the
invitation to speak, be says:'
"For over thirty years (twenty-sev
en on the bench) I have not set foot
on a political platform, and while on
tbe bench I scrupulously avoided all
partisan demonstrations. My habits
are now so fixed that I know it would
be a difficult task to speak in public,
yet I am so impressed with the impor
tance of this election, on which hang'
the results of a successful war, of re
union and National prosperity, that I
feel thai no one in whose bosom burns
a spark of patriotism would refuse to
perform his share of duty. My habits
of thought and expression disable me
from an ordinary political harangue,
and you must, therefore, accept of
something different."
And those who beard Judge Agnew
got 'something different"—different
from the "glittering generalities" and
low falsifications which were dished up
in this place last Thursday.—Pitts
burgh Dispatch.
Had General Hancock's letter in re
gard to "rebel claims" come earlier in
the canvass it wonld have had more
weight than will now be accorded to
it. The place for a declaration on that
subject was in the platform of the Dem
ocratic party adopted at Cincinnati or
in the letter of acceptance of the Dem
ocratic candidate for the Presidency.
The obvious criticism upon General
Hancock's letter to his Cincinnati cor
respondent in that it is not spontane
ous, but has been forced out of him by
the exigencies of the canvass, ns a
famous letter of similar import was
dragged out of Mr. Tilden four years
ago. Besides, it may be pointed out
that General Hancock's letter does not
quite cover the case, when he says:
"The Government can never pay a
debt or grant a pension or reward of
any sort for waging war upon its own
existence; nor could Ibe induced to j
approve or encourage payment of such
debt, pension or reward." But "rebel
claims" are neither a debt, a pension
nor reward or waging war upon the
existence of the Government. They
are demands growing out of the de
struction of property, mostly of non
combatants during the prosecution of
the war. If the law requiring proof of
loyalty in the claimant were repealed,
these claims would and could be paid,
because they could be proved to be
just demands against the Government;
and if the Government were in Demo
cratic hands some of the evidence from
the rebel records which now prevents
certain claimants from getting their
hands into the Treasury might not be
forthcoming when needed. They are.
moreover, certain large claims, like the
refund of the cotton tax, of the tobaeco
tax, and who knows but of the whisky
tax, which General Hancock's letter
does not touch at all
Besides, General Hancock does not
sav that he would veto any such bill if
passed. He says only, that he would
not "approve" it. He might not ap
prove it and yet it might become a
law from not being vetoed. But the
great point in this matter is, can a
President rise higher than his party ?
We all knc'v the behests of the party.
If General Hancock is elected by the
solid vote of the South, can he refuse
to accede to their demands ? Should he
be elected and do so there would un
doubtedly soon be a rupture between
him and bis party. We will be spared
however, of any fear or trouble on this
question, or any other question grow
ing out of the war, by the election of
General Garfield, who will be sure to
veto any such bill if ever passed. And
it is known there are some already in
troduced, and on file waiting for a fa
vorable time to bring them forward.
The conferees of this Senatorial dis
trict, Armstrong and Butler counties,
re-assembled at the Seventh Avenue
Hotel in Pittsburgh on Friday last.
It seems they came together again at
the instance of the Chairman of the
State Central Committee, Mr. Cessna.
It further appears that Mr. Cessna had
named, or suggested, Mr. H. H. By
ram of Pittsburgh, to act as umpire in
case the conferees of the two counties
failed to agree. A meeting of tbe con
ferees was bad and a discussion took
place as to the rights of tbe counties
to tbe candidate, etc., but no ballot was
taken on Friday, as far as we can
learn. An adjournment was then made
tc Saturday, the next day. On Satur
day a ballot was taken, resulting in
three votes for each candidate, Mr.
Meredith, of Armstrong, and Mr.Greer,
of this county. Then, it is alleged by
the friends of Mr. Greer that another
adjournment without day took place.
This point is not stated by Mr. Mere
dith. However, it seems that the con
ferees were reassembled, during Sat
urday, at the instance of Mr. Byram,
who at this point claimed a right to
be present and vote as the arbiter or
umpire appointed by Mr. Cessna. Mr.
Meredith informs us personally that
his conferees did not recognize the
right of Mr. Byram to interfere and
did not invite him to the meeting but
refused to join in an invitation to him,
and that when he, Mr. Byram, ap
peared in the meeting they objected to
his presence there, denying his author
ity in the premises. On the part of
Mr. Greer it is claimed that Mr. Mere
dith's conferees did recognize the right
of Mr. Byram to be in the meeting.
This is a material point on the ques
tion as to whether a nomination was
fairly made, or made at all. But a bal
lot it appears was taken, resulting in
each county's conferees voting for their
own candidate, three and three, and
then Mr. Byram claimed a right to
vote and did vote in favor of Mr.
Greer. Mr. Meredith's conferees, he
informs us, refused to ratify this pro.
ceeding, and the conference adjourned
without the said proceeding being ratifi
ed by the conferees of Armstrong
The above is about the statement of
both parties as near as we can ascer
tain them. Mr. Greer claims he is nom
inated, and Mr. Meredith on the other
hand says that neither he or his con
ferees consented to that mode of mak
ing the nomination. The fact that they
refused to ratify it would seem to con
firm the statement of Mr. Meredith-
He telegraphed here on Saturday that
he gave no such consent and on Mon
day last was here saying the same.
As at present advised we are unable
to say that a nomination has been
made, but presume we will soon have
further light on the subject.
We have heretofore referred to tbe
danger of what looks to be a new prac
tice, the interference of the State Com
mittee in the local politics of the coun
ties or districts of the State. This
year is the first in this State in which
a disposition has been manifested by
tbe State Committee to do so, and its
evil effects will likely follow. Just so
soon as this mode of settling contests
for nominations is recognized, then
every candidate, in every district, will
so shape bis course as to secure the
favor of the Chairman of tbe State
Committee. Although his county may
not be entitled to the candidate, yet be
will hold on and bold out in the hope
of the State Committee or its Chair
man deciding hi his favor. There will
be no longer an effort made by candi
dates to settle matters among them
selves at home on the old and honest
basis of "fair play and time about."
On tbe contrary, if knowing he or his
county has not the right to a district
nomination, be will instruct bis con-
puttee i fintljeir, |p».t <©ci«fcr*K 8, 1880.
ferecs not to yield to the county having
the right, but to cause adjournments,
from time to time, and then, as the
election approaches, to ask the State
Committee to step iu, which commit
tee he may iu the meantime have
brought some undue outside influence
upon. The dishonest or unworthy
candidate by promising his vote in ad
vance, mav thus at any time secure a
nomination that does not ljelong to his
countv. Nominations will not be
made as of old upon the right and
equities of the counties, but through
favoritism and possibly worse. In
the case before us the right, by rotation
and turn, to the present Senate nomi
nation in this district was known to
all to be with Armstrong county. That
countv is our equal politically, and in
all respects. We are connected with
her now politically and may continue
to be so in the future, and hence if any
wrong is done her at present we may
expect to reap the fruits of it in the fu
We had intended giving our readers
this week at least some portions of the
address of Judge Agnew in Pittsburgh
last week, but find we can only give
the following synopsis. This speech
brought to remembrance information
of a kind most important for present
use. The principal object of the ad
dress was, not to revive, or keep alive,
any ill-feeling between the Northern
and Southern sections of the Nation,
but to show from the record, as it
were, which party, the Democratic or
the Republican, were to be justly
charged with "sectionalism." The
Democrats now are charging the Re
publicans with being "sectional," or
endeavoring to keep up sectional
strife between the North and the
South. But their whole history has
shown that they are, and have been,
the sectional party. This, Judge Ag
new proves most clearly from the Dem
ocratic record on the slavery question.
In former years, and before the rebel
lion, the Democracy claimed that
"Slavery was National," ant', therefore
had a right to extend, anu be carrie. 1
to and over the free Territories of our
country. This doctrine would have
made Freedom local. But this ques
tion finally brought on the war of the
Rebellion, and now ther-jis no slavery,
but freedom everywhere. The point of
the address is, that if the Democrats
regain power they may, being judged
by their past history, undo much that
the late war accomplished. We were
struck on reading Judge Agnew's
address with the wonderfully reten
tive memory he has shown, as to
time and import, of all the great
questions that arose during the past
forty years on tbe great slavery strug
gle. It is a history in itself and called
back to the mind, some of those im
portant events, the struggle upon
which has wrought so great a change
in our country. The following is a
brief synopsis from the Pittsburgh
He began by an allusion to bis un
farniliarity with political speaking, and
said he would indulge in nothing be
yond tbe facts furnished by tho history
of the country. He then dwelt upon
the duty of every man to cast bis vote
honestly and for the right, and asked
every one present to think for himself
"what means tbe nomination of a can
didate by the solid South ? In plain
words, said he, it means a common in
terest, and a common intent. What
else could solidify 138 votes in sixteen
separate States ? What were they, and
what common bond has united them ?
They were all slave States, and, ex
cept"some of the border States, in com
mon interest and sympathy, furnished
many Confederate soldiers. Tbe so!id
vote meant sectional success, for if
General Hancock was elected it would
lie by the votes of the South with the
help ot forty-seven of the 231 votes of
tbe North. Tbe true character of a
party, continued tbe speaker, like that
of an individual, is to be learned from
its acts, motives and practices. The
Democratic party have been governed
by the South, which was responsible
for slavery, and for breaking down the
tariff and thus introducing long trains
of commercial disaster. The popular
sovereignty idea was also tbe fruit of
of Democratic feelings, as was the doc
trine that the United States was a
confederation and not a nation.
Tbe Judge then reviewed at length
the history of the parties in Congress,
proving by actual records, tho state
ments which he made and then began
the history of the Republican party
from its birth at Lafayette Hall in this
city. The exhaustive historical review
of both parties be concluded by say
ing: "I speak mainly to tbe young
men, and my purpose is to produce an
unbroken chain of evidence not to be
shaken by contradiction or ingenuity,
from which they and others may learn
these truths, viz: That the South
down to the rebellion has wielded the
power and influence of the govern
ment ; that to keep up the equipoise of
numbers and retain this power, she
brought in tho immonuu territory west
of the Mississippi to the Pacific Ocean;
that to carry slavery into this vast ex
panse, she broke down an old and
sacred compromise, forced on the
North by herself, whereby slavery was
bounded by an equitable line, that by
a violent wresting of tho Constitution
from its old and received meaning,
Congress was deprived of tbe power of
determining the condition of the ter
ritories, and all barrier to the national
ization of slavery were swept away ;
that in accomplishing these purposes
the South hau the a'd of at least half
of the Democratic party in the N'orth;
that the Democratic party North and
South thus became tbe instrument of
slavery, to carry it into free territory,
and thereby, through its own act, be
came a tecltonal party—that by this
act it finally became ftlo de ne, a sui.
cide, causing disruption, secession and
war. The same unbroken evidence
proves that the Republican party,
arising in freedom, became tbe party of
Union, the Constitution and the law,
and carried its mission forward to suc
cess. The issue* now xyprp the same as
tbev always bad been, und could it be
expected "thai tbe South would give
protection to the labor of the North
when tree trade suited them
The speaker then took up the topics
of protection to American industry,
the currency and tbe banking system,
and showed in each of them the effects
of Republican rule. He then discussed
the merits of th<' candidates, closing
with a fervant appeal to young men
and old to follow the standard bearer of
tbe Republican party."
The Republicans of Middlesex and
Clinton townships, on Saturday last,
raised a pole about 90 feet in hight, at
the store of Mr. Jacob B. Flick. _ A
meeting was afterwards organized with
Capt. Geo. W. Hays as President, Mr
John Donaldson (of Allegheny coun
ty) Vice President, and Robt Trimble,
Esq., as Secretary, and was addressed
by Thos. Robinson and A. G. Wil
liams, Esq'rs. Mr. Williams also sang
a song. The meeting adjourned with
cheers for Garfield and Arthur and the
Republican party.
The Republican meeting at Over
brook Station, on the Harmony nar
row guage road, Adams township, on
Saturday evening last, is reported as
being well attended and quite enthusi
astic! Samuel A. Kennedy presided.
A pole was raised and tbe meeting

Telegraph Blunders.
A gentleman who had gone to tha
country to find « summer location for
his family telegraphed to his wife,
"Home to-night." The wires render
ed this into "Come to-night," and so
the wife posted into the countrv at
ouce, while the husband was making
his way in a contrary direction.
Not long since a message came to
the principal of a business house In
this city from his traveling agent who
had reached Philadelphia, "Am at
Continental Hotel. Send some hash
by mail." The agent did not intend
to reflect on the food at tho hotel, but
wanted "cash" sent by mail.
An affectionate uncle was informed
by telegraph: "Mary is to be buried
on Wednesday. Coine sure." Mary,
who lived in Chicago, was his favorite
niece, and, as he had uot heard of her
illness, tbe sad-intelligence gave him a
severe shock. He dressed himself in
deep mourning, and made a hurried
journey to the West to find a jovial
party assembled at Mary's wedding.
The wire had arranged for her to be
"buried" instead of "married."
Probably the worst blunder ever
made was one that occurred in the case
of a St. Louis merchant, who, while in
New York, received a telegram inform
ing him that his wife was ill. He stmt
a message to bis family doctor, asking
the nature of the sickness and if there
was any danger, and received prompt
ly the answer: "No danger. Your
wife has had a child. If we can keep
her from having another to-night she
will do well." The mystification of
the agitated husband was not removed
until a second inquiry revealed the fact
that his indisposed lady had bad a
"chill."— The Hour.
RecollootionH of An Old Voter.
Mr. George Rosebaugh, of Adams
township this county, s:iys that he at
tended the (Jlay convention Utat W a »
held in Butler during the campaign of
184 4 The Democrats had held a con
vention in Butler on the preceding day
and they had on their banners, some
qf \yhich were still to be seen, "Polk,
Dallas and 'he Tariff of |Bf2." They
tiiu* succeeded in deceiving qjany, qnd
in making many believe that the Dem
ocratic party was tho friend of the la
boring man. They got the majority in
Congress and immediately they repeal
ed tbe protective tariff. In the Senate
tlje yote was a tie, and Dallas, the
Democratic yi'ie f'resjdent gaye the
casting vote, and away wont tl»e pro
tective tariff.
The consequence was that English
railroad iron was run into the Iron
City of Pittsburgh vyljilo tlje laboring
men there were eating soup ijt the
soup-houses. To indicate the prices of
products <tc. at that time the following
will serve as an example :
Mr. Rosebaugh sold a good three
year-old stt er for $9. Wheat was
worth sGcts. per bushel ; butter sold as
low as scts. a pound in the Allegheny
market, and old James McCandless
then living in Adams township, sold
beef in Allegheny at ninety cents per
hundred and took clothing for his pay.
Others had to bring bom* their beef
because they could not get a penny a
pound for it. John McCandless, a
neighbor of Mr. Rosebaugh says that
during those times the lowest that he
sold pork at was $1.85 a hundred,
dressed. As a contrast between the
prices of those times and the present,
last week D. B. Poutbett sold pork at
cts. per pound, live weight.
A WorltiDgman's Fight.
Tbe Press has been shown a letter
dated September 2, 1880, received by
an intelligent workingman of this city
from a fellow-workingman in Oldham,
England, which contains a single sen
tence that has a word of interest for
every worker in every forge and fur
nace and factory and mill in this coun
trv That sentence is as follows:
If anybody uoubts the genuineness
of this letter the Press holds itself in
readiness to produce it at an hour's no
tice. There can be no doubt, howev
er, of its authenticity, nor of the fact
which it states. Evidence exists on
every side that the Free-trade Demo
cratic party of this country has tbe ac
tive sympathy of every British manu
facturer. English manufactures are
decaying. English trade is stagnant.
English labor is nnable to obtain em
ployment even at the wages that keep
body and soul together, and is flocking
across the Atlantic. England's home
market has been successfully invaded
by the products of the great copartner
ship between [American capital and
American labor which sustains the
tariff. England is so reduced by her
industrial prostration that she dare not
enforce her natural national policy and
maintain her dignity as a Power, and
changes her Ministry to escape a war
in which her pride and her traditions:
would have her embark. England is
on the eve of a crisis which can only
be averted by the breaking down of the
tariff which protects American indus
try and which has closed the best mar
ket she ever had or the world ever fur
nished.—Philadelphia Press, Oct. Is/.
The Great Meeting at Warren, Ohio.
The Republican mass meeting at
Warren, Ohio, on Tuesday week last
was a grand demonstration, and a suc
cess beyond all expectation, there be
ing no disappointment in any particu
lar. The great wigwam, holding 12,000
people, was crowded and two large
over-flow meetings were held outside.
Gen. Grant presided, and in opening
tbe meeting spoke as follows:
"Ladies and Gentlemen: —ln view
of the known character and ability of
the speaker who is to address you to
day, and his long public career and as
sociation with the leading statesmen
of the country for tbe past twenty
years, it would not be becoming iu ine
to detain you with many remarks of
my own, but it may be proper for me
to account to you, on the first occasion
of my presiding at a political meeting,
for the 'faith that is in me.' lam a
Republican, as the great political
parties are divided, because the Re
publican party is a national party,
seeking the greatest irood of the great
est number of its citizens. There is
not a precinct in this vast Nation
where a Democrat cannot cast bis bal
lot and have it counted us cast. No
matter what the predominance of the
opposite party, he can proclaim his po
litical opinions, even if lie is only one
among a thousand, without fear and
without proscription on account of his
opinion. There are 14 States and lo
calities iu some others where Republl
cans have not this privilege. This is
one reason why I am a Republican.
But I am a Republican for many other
reasons. The Republican party as
sures protection of life, property, pub
lic credit, and the payment of Govern
ment debts—State, county or muuic
ipal—so far as it can control. The
Democratic party does not promise,
this If it does it has broken its
promises to tbe extent of hundreds of
millions, as many Northern Demo
crats can testify to their sorrow. I am
a Ilepublicnn as between existing par
ties because it fosters production of the
field and farm and of manufactures,
and it encourages the general educa*
tion of the poor as well as the rich.
The Democratic party discourages all
these. The Republican party is a par
ty of progress and of liberality towards
its opponents* It encourages the poor
to strive to better their condition ; the
ignorant to educate their children, to
enable them to compete successfully
with there more fortunate associates ;
and, in line, it secures an entire equali
ty before tbe law of every citizen, no
matter what his race, nationality, or
previous condition. It tolerates no
priviledged class. Every one has the
opportunity to make himself all he is
capable of, Do you believe this can 'hi
truthfully said in the greater part o|
the States of this Union to-day which
the Democratic party controls abso
lutely ? The Republican party is a
party of principles —tbe same princi
ples prevailing wherever it has a foot,
bold. The Democratic party is united
iu but one thing and that is in getting
control of the Government iu all its
branches, It is for internal iinprov
nient at the expense of tbe (luvern
ment in one section and against this
iu another. It favors repudiation of
solemn obligations in one section and
honest payment of its debts in another,
where public opinion will not tolerate
any other view. It favors liat money
in onp placp and j»oo<| money in ap'
other. Finally, it favors the (pooling of
all issues' not favored by tbe Republi
cans to the end that it may secure one
principle upon which the parly is al
most a harmonious unit—namely, gain
ing control qf the Government iu all
iu branches.
