Ms. SEHATOR John M Greer receiv
ed sn emphatic censure at bis home
here last Saturday, at the Republican
primary elections. In the election of
return judges, or delegates, from this
borough and Butler township to the
County Convention, tbe issue was made
on bis conduct in the Senate on the
Judiciary bill and its unjust treatment
of this county and Judge McJunkin,
and tbe result was that tho wbole
three delegates chosen at tbe Court
House here were chosen over bis can
didates, and that by decided majorities.
And tbls notwithstanding be came
borne, and it is said took the streets,
begging not to be censured.
THB Judiciary bill is still hanging
in the Legislature. Up to this writing,
Tuesday noon, it is in tbe hands of
Conference committees of tbe two
Houses, who have not agreed upon all
its provisions. It is believed and hoped
that it may yet fail entirely. If passed,
it is predicted by some that it will be
vetoed. It creates nine new judicial
districts and fifteen more Judges, at an
annual cost to the State of about sev
enty thousand dollars, Tbe feeling
•gainst it in some other parts of the
State is as strong as bere and it will
be better if no such bill passes. The
Legislature adjourns on Thursday, of
this week, and, from appearances, in
much confusion and disorder as to its

burg which Senator Oreer obtained for
him, and hence be feels obligated to
write to bis Journal, praising Mr.
Oreer and abusing Mr. Brabam, be

against the unjust Judiciary bill. His
abuse of Mr. Brabam is copied into tbe
Eagle here last week, per arrangement
probably. But if it benefits tbem to

Mr. Brabam will not be displeased or
make objection. If it does tbem good,
it does no other body any barm. Tbe

In another place will be seen a table
of the votes cast at the late primary
election as well as a summary of the
same, and by which it will be seen the
following ticket ha* been nominated :
For Associate Judge, Alfred D.
Wier, of Buffalo township, is the suc
cessful candidate. Mr. Wier is well
known to the people of this county and
is an intelligent and public spirited
citizen. He is well qualified for the
position, and, if the office is not abol
ished by the bill yet pending in the
Legislature, and he should be elected,
he will serve the people faithfully aud
For Sheriff, Mr. Fergus M. Shira, of
Parker township, carries oft the palm.
He comes of one of the oldest and
best stock of people in the county,
being a son of Mr. Peter Shira of
Washington township, where he was
born and raised. He is the first of the
name who have ever asked for and re
ceived a nomination for a county office
The whole Shira families of the county
have been long known as good citizens
and active, ardent Republicans. It is
a worthy nomination and a strong one.
For Prothonotary, Matthew N.
Greer, Esq., of Buffalo township, re
ceives the nomination. Mr. Greer is
well known to the citizens of the
county, having been Register & Record
er of the county for a term, and other
wise prominently before the public.
He is a clever and agreeable gentle
man, a working Republican and, so far
as we know, hae obtained bis nomina
tion tairly and honorably.
CLERK or COURT— This nomination
has fallen to a very worthy young man,
Mr. W. B. Dodds, of Muddycreek
township. No better or stronger nom
ination could have been made for Clerk
of our Courts. "Brouse/'as Mr. Dodds
is generally called, was a good soldier
in the late rebellion, serving through
the same with credit. He is popular,
well qualified, energetic in business,
and wijl make an efficient, agreeable
and obliging officer.
for and nominatian of Mr. Henderson
W. Christie, the nominee for Register
& Recorder, indicate that tbe voters at
the primary duly considered his claims
and physical condition. Mr. Christie
is a cripple, and is a worthy young man.
He was raised in Worth township, but
has been residing in this borough for
some years past with his aged, much
respected and widowed mother The
vote he received in the upper end of
the county, where he was best known,
attests bis strength as a strong candi
For Treasurer-James Harvey Miller,
the successful candidate for this of
fice, is a worthy man and bis nomina
tion is a strong one. He was born and
raised in this place and is well and
favorable known to our people. The
vote he received tbroughoutthe county,
having about a thousand of a plurality
over any other candidate, all show that
the people of the county recognized his
claims and merits. The office of County
Treasurer is onej of individual respon
sibility and Mr. Miller has the experi
ence and ability to be a safe custodian
of tbe funds of the county.
inations for County Commissioners
have fallen upon two well known
citizens of the county. Charles Coch
ran, Esq., of Concord township, is the
son of an old citizen of this place, h'or
many years past be has resided in Con
cord township, as a farmer, which oc
cupation be has followed with success
all bis life, except while serving bis
fellow citizens in the capacity of a Jus
tice of the Peace. When Greece city
was flourishing in its prosperity and
its suddenly made, large population, Mr.
Cochran was chosen as a justice of tbe
peace for that place, and was useful to
the people in the transaction of their
business. He has tbe ability to make
an intelligent and good County Com
Capt. Qeo. W. Hays, of Middlesex
township, tbe other successful candi
date for Commissioner, is perhaps as
favorably a known citizen as there is
in the county. He is a man of decided
good repute among his fellow citizens
and has the ability to fill almost any
office within their gift. That he will
make a most excellent County Com
missioner there cannot lie any doubt.
He has been a useful man all his life,
serving his immediate people with
great fidelity and usefulness. At the
commencement of tbe late war he as
sisted in raising a company of volun
teers tiecame its captain, was attached
to the 137 th Pennsylvania Regiment,
and served his country faithfully. llis
nomination was made without any
great effort on his own part and main
ly through bis good standing as a citi
zen. He will make the people of the
county just the kind of a County Com
missioner they should have.
For County Auditors, Mr. George
W. Crow, of Forward township, and
Mr. James 11. Shaunon, of Franklin
township, are the successful candidates.
They are both intelligent men and we
have no doubt will make careful and
faithful County Auditors.
CORONER.—The selection of Wm.
Kennedy, K*q., ol Penn township, for
County Coroner, is as good a one as
cou'd be made for that office. He is
a very worthy man, in all respects,
and will discharge tbe duties of the of
fice with care and strict fidelity.

Conkling to placate him, and the Inde

It was 22 years last Saturday, June
sth, since the memorable freeze occur
ed in this part of the country, by which
all kinds of vegetation and fruit were al
most destroyed. The wheat and rye
fields, then just about as far on as now,
were ruined to such an extent that the
alarm as to flour became very great,
that article of food going up suddenly
t,o sixteen dollars a barrel, but dropping
soon again to about eight dollars.
Corn and potatoes were frozen and
wilted to the ground and had to be re
planted. The apple, peach, pear, cherry,
the field fruits and all garden vege
tables, fared the same fate The de
struction was so general that all the
necessaries of life ran up to double
their former value. To make the mat
ter still more gloomy that frost or
freeze was soon followed by another
one, on Juue 11th, though not 80 severe
as tbe first. The area of country swept
by the destruction extended from the
lakes on the north west to south-east,
through portions of the Stfttes of Illi
nois, Indiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania,
Maryland and Virginia, being bound
ed on the e»st by the Allegheny Mount
ains aud extending tts far as
Wheeling, home people were in dread
of some such frost this year, but the
general feeling now is that we have
escaped such a calamity. A fire pass
ing over could not well have done more
damage. It was indeed in appearance
more like the effects of a fire, the sun of
that morning having come out bright
clear, and thus completing the ef
fects of tbe frost.

CINCINNATI, June I.— A correspon
dent of the Commercial had a talk
with ex-President Ilayes at Bellefon
taine, Ohio, on Decoration Day, whilst
they were riding in a barouche togeth
er. The correspondent says :
I had au opportunity yesterday, after
the memorial day exercises in this
l>eautiful aud thriving town, to tnke a
long drive with ex-President Hayes.
I think, than when he left tbe While
House. His face is tanned with ex
posure in the sun, aud his hands show
marks of freckles, which have come
since he discarded affairs of State tor
private enterprises.
There are streaks of grey in his hair
and whiskers, and, though Hayes nev
er allowed bis busiuess to worry him
as Garfield does, he shows the marks
of time.
Conversation soon turned from tbe
scenes around us to the affairs of the
State and Nation, and Conkling's re.
cent feat of haru-kari was, of course,
mentioned. ] ahked Mr. Hayes how
he accounted for Conkling's actions,
aud he said, with great seriousness and,
I thought, a little sadness Mr. Conk
ling is not himself any more.
on the su'iject of his own importance.
It is a serious thing to say, but I am
perfeetly confident that Mr. Conklinj? is
not at'times a rational creature. He is
so impressed with his o\\n greatness
that it has become more than eccentric
ity—it is monomania '
This announcement seemed to star
tle Mr. Martiu, who was |>ri>gent, as
somewhat surprising, and Mr Hayes
noticing this, said: 'This is by no
means an uncommon phase of insanity.
The malady often takes that form. In
sane persons very frequently imagine
that they are some distinguished char
acter, or superior being. There are
over fifty persons in the inHann usy
lunis who imagine themselves Presi
dents of the United States. Some Iw;-
lieve themselves to bo Napoleon, oth
ers the King, the Czar. Many imag
ine themselves to l>e Jesus Christ, or
even the Almighty himself-—Conkliug
is drifting that way Men who do his
bidding be believes to l»e afraid of him.
Those who refuse to oljey his dictates
he considers his bitter enemies. He
think* they are trying to humiliate him.
'Humiliate' is a favorite term of Mr.
Conkling's. 'l o show you how egotis
tical he is, just let me relate an inci
dent: In 1M79 General J. S. Kobin
son, of the Republican Executive Com
mittee of this State, invited Mr. Conk
ling to come to Ohio andmake a few
political speeches.
'Come to Ohio,' said Conkling, puf
fing up indignantly. 'They have in
sulted me in Ohio; I cannot think of
goiu}; there.' 'lnsulted J/ou i Ilow,
pray ?' asked Rohiin4on. 'Have they
not indorsed this wretched hypocrite in
the White house ? That wan intended
as u direct drive at me, sir.'
'General Robinson protested that
such WUH not the ease, hut Mr Conk
ling would not listen and refused to
The conversation was then inter
rupted by some one calling attention to
the surrounding scenery, hut Mr. Hayes
t'jok up the thread again and said :
Mr. Conkling's downward course
dates from the Slate campaign in New
York in 1 M 7(», when he did all in his
power to destroy the Republican party.
Governor Morgan, the candidate in
that year, was perfectly satisfied that
Conkling had done all that he possibly
could to defeat his candidacy. Conk
ling has made three attempts to destroy
the party. That wan the lirst one.
The second was during the session of
the Electoral Commission. Mr. Conk
ling WHS nettled and stung at his fail
ure to secure the nomination, and
sought an opportunity to throw the
scale in favor or Mr. Tildeij. He gave
the Democrats t ) understand that he
prefered Mr. Tilden's election to my
own, and had n speech fully prepared
to overthrow the aetion ol the Com
mission relative to the returns from
Alabama. Senator Morton discovered
his trick junt in time to prevent his
treachery. The third attempt that
Conkling made wan in forming the
j Potter Investigating Committor. There
never would have been such a com
mittee but for Mr. Conkling. The
Southern Democrats were afraid of it.
aud loth to have anything to do with
it. Ido not know that Mr. Conkling
falsified in this instance People were
coming to him with stories of all kinds,
being assured that they would find him
readv to support tlieru in overturning
the result of the election, and he grew
to believe them. I think be was con
vinced. probably, in his own mind that
Mr. Garfield, Mr. Matthews aud other
statesmen had made au open bargain
and sale for the votes of certain States,
aud he declared openly that Hayes
would be "compelled from very shame
to quit the White House within thirty
days after the investigation began. He
did all he dared do in each case to
overthrow his party, and the party will
be all the stronger without him. He
had no possible excuse for his action,
though I think Mr. Piatt probably had.
I can see how Piatt may have fHt that

Speaking of the probable action of
the Republican State Convention in in
dorsing President Garfield's course,
Mr. Hayes said he thought that the
people of Ohio were unanimous in that,
and this fight will strengthen Garfield
everywhere. It Is the boat tiling ifl
