Last year was a bad year for
political bosses, and the downfall of
men who undertake to control the
affairs of the nation, a state, or a city
by the power of money or patronage
which represents money, is always the
deligbt of the masses, who know that,
suc K rule is not to their best interests.
The downfall of John Kelly, the 'boss'
of New York city, was a conspicuous
instance, and this was brought about
mainly through the enterprise and de
termination of that wonderful newspa

people must of necessity keep up good

defective flue is the source of a great
deal of misery in this world, and the
cause of a great loss of property, a loss
which in this country is said to equal
each year the value of our wheat crop.
This subject, we think, merits the at

—Three hundred and one oil wells,
thirteen of which were dry, were com
pleted during December; 399 wells
are now being drilled and 413 rigs are
up or building. The average daily pro
duction of these wells i« low, less than
25 barrels. The majority of them are
in the northern, or Bradford oil field.
In what is called the southern field, in
cluding Clariou, Venango. Butler and
Armstrong counties, but 25 wells were
finished, of which 7 are dry. The
whole daily production of crude oil at
present is about 70.000 barrels, and al
though the wells finished during De
cember are yielding over fiOOO barrels
per day the yield from the old wells
has decreased more than that amount,
which of course decreases the average
yield. The price of crude oil during
the last three months has ranged from
90 cents to SI.OO. Yesterday it was
quoted at cents.

The lynching of a man named Jo
seph Snyder, near Easton, Pa , on
Monday of last week, is said to have
been the first case ol the kiud that has
ever happeued in this state. Snyder
was a miner and was boarding with a
family named Gogle. lie made im
proper advances to their fifteen-year
old daughter. This the Gogles resent
ed, but as they were poor and Snyder
owed them for two months board, they
thought they could not afford to order
him out of the house. On Sunday of
last week the parties had some hot
words regarding the matter and that
night while Mr. and Mrs. Gogle were
fast asleep in their bed, Snyder killed
them both with an axe. He then
alarmed some neighbors, claiming that
the murders had been committed by
burglars, and hid himself in a barn.
When arrested next morning he con
fessed his crime, and the people who
had collected strung him up to a tree.
Some time previous, in the same coun
ty, a murderer named Laros had been
acquitted in the plea of insanity and
the people seemed determined to make
sure ot this man.

The Ponr II»u«e Question.
In accordance with the call published
in the county papers the woek previ
ous, quite a number of the citizens of
the county met in the Arbitration
room of the Court House on Wednes
day afternoon of last week to consider
the Poor-house question.
The following towns and townships
were represented at the meeting: Bra
dy, Clay, Fairvimv town-hip, Frank
lin. Oakland, Clearfield, Centre. Perm.
Jefferson, Middl sex, Fairview bor
ough and Prospect, one eaeh ; Parker,
2; Concord, 4; Donegal, 3 ; Conno
quenessing, 2; Butler township, 3;
Summit, 4 ; Forward 2; Winfield, 2;
Cranberry, 2; Clinton, 3; Millerstown,
3 ; Petrolia, 2 ; Butler borough, 3.
Hon. A. L. Campbell of Petrolia
was elected President of the meeting,
and Jos. B. Bredin, Esq., Secretary.
The first thing in order was the read
ing of sections 1, 2 and 3 of the Act of
Assembly, approved .lune 4, 1879,
which creates each county in t he Com
monwealth a poor district, and empow
ers the Couutv Commissioners to buy
real estate, erect buildings, etc., pro
vided the people of the county decide
upon hsvinjf a poor-house. To reach
this decision the act provides that the
Court of Quarter Sessions of the coun
ty shall, upon the petition and recom
mendation of two-thirds of the Over
seers of the Poor of the county, then
in office, order an election, submitting
the question to the people either at the
usual February or November elections,
or at a special election ordered for the
purpose, sixty days notice to be given.
After the reading of the Act several
warm speeches were made, for arfd
against having a poor-house. Some
contending that the paupers of the
county were well enough taken care of
at present; that the present system
was by odds the most economical, and
that a poor-house would be a burden
and a curse to the county ; others that
the poor were not well enough taken
care of as it is ; that it was often hard
and sometimes impossible to find any
body in the town or township who
would take them in ; that having a
poor farm was the most economical
way of providing for the poor, and
that a poor farm properly established
and managed would be almost, if not
entirely sel.-sustaining. Those present
holding the latter views seemed to be
in the majority for the following mo
tion was put, seconded and carried :
Resolved, That this meeting recom
mend the Overseers of the Poor of the
several poor districts to petition the
Court at once to authorize an election
for the purpose of allowing the citizens
of the county an opportunity to vote
for or against the purchase of a poor
Some more discussion on the ad
vantages and disadvantages of poor- ,
houses followed the adoption of the ,
resolution. The only poor-house report
in the meeting was one of the Alleghe
ny county poor-house for 187f, which
states that the maintenance of each i
pauper provided for at the institution |
cost the county but $71.30 for the
year. The average number of inmates
for the year is stated at 285; the bills
for groceries, dry goods, salaries, med
icines, tobacco, etc., aggregate $21,-
74'.) 71 ; but the bills for other things,
new buildings, repairs, etc., and in
cluding a Hospital bi'l of $14,879 84,
aggregate $32,105 38, making $53,855,-
09 in all.
It seemed to be the desire of some of
those present who favored havimr a
poor-house or farm, that the election
should be held with the coming Feb
ruary election, but as the act provides
that at least sixty days notice of the
election shall be given, it cannot lte
held at any regular election prior to

Tiik Timkk will enter the New Year with n
larger circle of regular reader* than it had at
any previous, period of its history, an<l the lin
poitant events of the next rear must steadily
enlarge the field of independent journalism.
A new administration will he inaugurated;
new political occasions will create new political
duties; the great commercial and industrial
prosperity of the country must stimulate pro
gress and thrift in all sections, and the tendency
of political power will he toward corruption
and despotism, as it ever is when the people are
diverted from the stern criticism of authority
by peace and plenty.
THK Times will be in the future, as it has
been in the past, absolutely independent of po
litital parties, but earnestly and fearlessly de
voted to integrity and patriotism in our states
manship and to the freedom and sahetity of the
ballot. Dependent party organs will continue
to babble about party men and party measure ;
to cvcuse the public jobber and the dcmugngve;
to suppress, pervert or deny the truth when
parlv interest demand it, and to lavish the
regulation praise of the servant to the inasteJ;
bin the glowing intelligence of the age daily
multiplies the readers ot the independent news
paper, and the journals which rellect the
rapidly increasing Jindejiendent of the people
will Ire the great American journenls <>i the
Tin: Times aims to reach ihe highest stand
aril of the independent newspaper. It fearlessly
opposes corruytionist and rings in all parties,
whether in city State or Nation. It opposes
ovary forui of imperial political domination,
whether represented by the individual, by a
faotion or by a party. It opposes sectionalism
North and South as" the demon of the Republic,
and it demands public tranquillity and the
supremacy ol liberty and law tor every citizen
of the Union.
Tiik Timf.h will begin the New Year
Strengthened in all of its already exceptionally
strong departments. Its Annals of the Wat
wilt be continued in the W'KKKI.Y I'. It I TON,
with specially interesting extracts therefrom in
the other editions and the contributors lor IK, si
to this imyortant feature of the paper will lie
from the most distinguished soldier* and civil
ians of both North and Soth. Its large list of
contributors in this and in foreign countries
will be more than maintained; it.-; ruliahlc
news correspondence i* unsurpassed by that ol
any other journal of the country; its various
departments essential to a complete newspaper
tor the home and family circle are constantly
enlivened bv fresh writers, and it will main
tain the position it has won,solely on its mer
its, as one of the most reliable and complete
newspapers of the world.
