—Jesse James was buried at Kear
ney, Missouri, on Thursday. Mourn
ing relatives, hosts of friends, officers
of the law in the vicinity, and the rev
erend clergy, all seem to have united
in paying extraordinarp honors to his
remains. Never before had Kearney
seen so grand a funeral. Among the
pall bearers of the dead man were a
Sheriff and a deputy sheriff, and the
coffin was followed to the grave by an
immense throng on horseback, in wag
ons, and on foot The Rev. Mr. Mar
tin—by permission of the afflited fami
ly assisted by the Rev. Mr. Jones—
conducted the religious services in the
crowded church. The hymns 'What a
Friend I Have in Jesus' and 'Where
Shall Rest be Found?' were sung in
the most solemn style, and the Rev.
Mr. Martin assuaged the grief of the
mourners in a funeral sermon full of
comforting language. Jesse James
had the funeral of a saint thanks to the
Rev. Mr. Martin and the Rev. Mr. Jones.
He had led alife of comparative security,
thanks to the officers of the law, two of
whom bore his corpse in honor to the
grave after he had been assassinated
through treachery. And that was the
ending of a most cowardly and blood
thirsty ruffian in a State of the Ameri
can Union. In all the records of
brigandage and murder there is no in
stance more astounding than this of

—Sinful people have away of imply
ing that deacons' daughters and ser
uionizers' sons are, to pot it mildly,
no better than other young people; but
even the persistency with which this
opinion is expressed hardly prepares
the public for occurrences like one.that
was reported trom St. Louis a day or
two ago. A popular Methodist preach
er, being assigned by the Annual Con
fofence to a poorer aud less prominent
parish than that to which he had pre
viously ministered, accused one of his
clerical brethren of having improperly
influenced the Bishop. The aggrieved
man's son, aged fourteen years, also
freed his mind on the subject, using
language which, although of Scriptural
derivation, was misapplied in a manner
that could not fail to inflict pain upon
pious ears. When the object of oppro
brium, who was a D. D,, remonstrated
the young man drew a claspknife, and
had not his hand been stayed by some
of his own friends he might have ac
complished his purpose, which, to use
his own words, was to cut out the of
fending clergyman's liver. In such a
case the leading question is not wheth
er the removal of a saintly liver will
make a doctor of divinity less liable to
le* his clerical brethren down in the
estimation of their bishop; it is wheth
er a preacher should not be able to
teach his eon, before the youth reaches
the age of fourteen years, that Chris
tianity does not recognize impromptu
carving of the human liver as a means
of Bottling churchly quarrels. To the
sinful it naturally seems that men who
cannot lead their own households out
of warlike ways are hardly the propef
persons to guide others ioto paths of

—President Arthur vetoed the Chi
nese Immigration bill on the ground
that the suspension of the coming of
Chinese labors to this country for
twenty years would be a breach of
our national faith as pledged to China
in the treaty of 1880. Ho reviews the
negotiations at the forming of the
treaty, to show that neither of the con
tracting parties contemplated the pas
sage of an act containing a prohibition
of immigration for twenty years, or
thought that such a period wduld be a
reasonable suspension or limitation.
He adds that he is deeply convinced
of the necessity for some legislation on
this subject, and points out features of
this act which, be thinks could be mod
ified to advantage. He says the sys
tem of personal registration and pass
ports is undemocratic and hostile to
the spirit of our institutions. The
Chinese Minister has reminded him
that the bill makes no provision for
the transit across the United States of
Chinese subjects now residing in for
eign countries. Good faith, aud good
policy too, he thinks, require us to sus
pend the immigration of C'jinese labor
ers for a less period than twenty years.
No one can say that the country has
not profited by the work of the Chi
nese, aud the Pasific States, he declares,
are full of evidences of their indus
try. Now it is supposed they are need
ed there, but there may be other sec
tions of the country, he suggests, where
their labor may be advantageously em
ployed witout interfering with the la
borers of our own race. Finally, the
President points out that the trade of
China has been very valuable to us,
and especially to California, and that
the policy of this bill must repel it. Il
may be, be says, that the great and
f>aramount interest of protecting our
abor from Asiatic competition justifiuß
us in a permanent adoption of this
policy: but it is wiser in the first place
to make a shorter experiment, with a
view hereafter of maintaining perma
nently only such features as time and
experience may commend.

The New Oil Field.
Shortly after the Simcox and Myers
well was tubed, last Tuesday, it com
menced flowing oil through the tubing
at the rate of about one hundred bar
rels per day, and was reported yester
day to be still flowing at the rato of
about eighty barrels. This well is
located on the Haruel farm, in the
north-west corner of Penn township,
and is 148 rods east of a deg:ee
line parsing through Bald Ridge No. 1.
This degree line (north 22£
degrees east, or south22| degrees we?t)
was run some years ago from the Bul
lion or old Oil city belt, and Bald
Ridge wells, No. 1 and 2 were located
at or near the junction of this line with
a 45 degree line run from the Greece
city cross belt. Obtaining oil at this
point has naturally created some ex
citement in oil circles and among the
land owners of the vicinity. Property
for miles north and south of the new
well, on the degree line, and also
on the Greece city line, the Herman
station line and the Carbon Centre,
has been leased. Some oil rights have
also been sold at good figures. Mr.
John Weber, whose farm adjoins the
Hamel, to the south, has sold the oil
right of his farm for SSO per acre and
one eighth royalty.
Quite a number of new wells will be
put down in that vicinity immediately
and until some of these new well? are
down, it will be impossible to tell
whether the new well is on a belt or
pool, or in which direction it extends.
The old Oil city belt is said to have
been a belt of pools.
The Bald Ridge Oil Company has
located five new oil wells on their leas
es. They are also drilling their No.
3 well, on the Crow farm, (For
ward township) deeper. The Phil
lips Bros. have located several
wells on their leases in the vicinity.
This firm have leased thousands of
acres, on lines running from Herman
station and from a point near Carbon
Centre, to the Bald Ridge territory.
The United Oil Company (Taylor &
Co.) have leased a large number of
properties on the degree line and
have located a wejl on the William M.
Brown farm, in Forward township.
Kerr Mcßride has located a well on
the Gruver farm, in Butler township.
The McConnell well, on the Miller
farm, in Butler township, is down
about 800 feet; it is some distance
west of the 22£ line, near the old camp
These are all the new wells we have
heard of, and they will surely be
enough to thoroughly tost the territory.
The sand is so deep that some of the
oil operators believe there are 500 bar
rel wells to be had in the vicinity. We
hope so. It will be a big thing for
Butler. The town has brightened la
ready, and for this new luck it is large
ly indebted to the Bald Ridge Oil Co.,
who risked their money, in what, to
many, seemed a very foolish enterprise,
and particularly to the originator and
chief promoter of the Company, Ferd
Cent revllle Ileum.

1. Now in those days there was a great com
motion in the land of squabbles, and it went
throughout the whole country, even from
I''gypt that part which is over against
2. For behold there dwelt in that land n
certain one who was wont to publish unto peo
ple of other lands, those things which come to
to pass in his own country.
3. And when this one had perceived after
what strange manner some of the chief men of
the land were acting in the Synagogue,—even
saying unseemly things and giving strange tes
timony, he wrote concerning this thing, neither
did he conceal the truth.
4. And when those of whom it had been
written had learned of, they were wroth, for
they said one untq another ; Verily, the peo
ple will laugh at us.
5. And when they had called the people to
gether unto the Synagogue, they harangued
them and said unto them "Now let us call
this one who has written concerning ui, Juda<,
for, behold, he was once as a friend unto us,
but now he hath given us away."
6. And the people lifted up their voice
with one accord and shouted, "Oh, Judas!"
7. And they reasoned together and question
ed one another what they should do unto this
8. And a certain one kept crying out "cruci
fy him," "crucify him," but none heeded him
for is he not called even unto this day, "The
9. Ami when they were all of one mind
they rushed forth from the Synagogue and
sought the scribe in tbe streets.
10. And when they had found him for he
was n»t hidden, they called him into the house
of a magistrate, neither would they enter the
house of the scribe, for they said "we would
speak with thee privately,""
11. And a great multitude followed tliein
unto the house of the magistrate, even the
wives of the chief men, as if desiring that the
head of the scribe might be brought out unto
them on a charger.
12. And when they were come into the in
ner room of the Magistrate's house and the
crowd stationed around about on the out
side, they said unto the scribe :
13. 'write thou now unto all nations and
declare unto them that those things which thou
didst write formerly concerning us are false.'
14. 'Else we will publish to the people in
the Synagogue concerning thee that thou art
an enemy unto them, anil they will no more
look kindly upon thee or trade with thee iu
15. But he refused and said ; 'Nay, rather
will the people of all nations learn fnun these
things and those which are to follow that those
things whereof I have written are true,'
10. And they all rose up and departed, every
man to his own house.
17. And it indeed came to pass as the Scribe
lid prophecy, for even uuto this day are not
the sayings and doings of the chief men in the
Synagogue, a by-word unto all the nations of
I the earth.
WHITESTOWN, March 28th, 1882.
31essrs. Editors :—lt is a long time
since we saw anything in your valu
able paper from our towu and thinking
your correspondent was either dead or
away on a visit, we will try our hand,
by giving you a short sketch about our
school in No. 2, or as it is more
familiarly kuown as lower Whitestown,
Connoquenessing twp., which closed
its winter term, March 27th, and gave
an entertaintmeat in the evening.
The opening exercise was a "Greeting
Glee," by the Glee Club; and next a
Salutatory, by a class, subject, "Wel
come." After which came select read
ing, dialogues, declamations, recitations
and music, both vocal and instrumen
tal. All of which was well rendered,
not a single failure oecuriug; all which
show that Miss Ella Martin is a first
class teacher and is worthy of the place
she occupies in the school room. Au
otber feature of the entertainment was
the order weich was had, the house
being crowded to overflowing, yet
good order prevailed, every ones' atten
tion being occupied by the good per
formances as they came off, and our
opinion is all went home thinking it
was good to be there OBSERVER
To the Farming Community.
We wish to call your attention to
the fact that we are now manufactur
ing three grades of flour at our Orien
tal Roller Mills, Mifflin street, and we
will furnish all who apply with our
EXCHANGE CARD, a printed list,
showing bow much flour and offal of
each kind can be had for a bushel of
wheat. We can assert, with pride,
that we have the trade of the best and
largest farmers in our own county, and
more yet, have gained the patronage
of those of adjoining counties, twenty
and thirty miles distant. Our flours
have no superior any where and no
equal in this part of the State. Our
enemies have circulated falsehoods as
to our mode of exchanging wheat, in
tending this to injure our prosperous
business. Our "Exchange Card" ex
plains all, and we say to our country
friends, get a copy, and then deal with
those who speak the truth, make the
l>eßt flour and, in short, render the
most honest and satisfactory returns.

—The experience which emigrants
to Manitoba are now having will not
encourage people to settle in that re
gion. While in the most of our West
ern country the farmers are having
fair weather and are ahead in their
spring work, the railroads to Manitoba
are blockaded by immense snow drifts,
and a train with 800 emigrants is fro
zen in three miles from any point of
supply. The people have suffered
from hunger, and, thongh they are not
now in danger of starvation, they may
be left without fuel or lights before
they can be got out. Even if all lie
true that is said of the fertility of the
valley of tbe Red River of the North,
the length and severity of its winters
will tend to retard the development
of its resources, especially so long as
there is so much land open to settlers
in our own Northwest.

The Greenback Labor State Com

propositions inimical to the nomination
of a full straight ticket, and adopted a
resolution recommending to tb« State
Convention of the party the selection
of a candidate for Governor and all of
the other State offices to be filled. It
was decided to hold a State Conven

—On Wednesday Rob't M'Caffcrty,
son of James M'Cafferty, of Buffalo tp.,
Butler county, was hauling baled hay
to Sarvers Station, 011 the Butler
Branch. In going down tbe hill to the
station he fell oil' the wagon in front,
the front wheel passing diagonally
across his breast, from left to right,
and twisting his body around so that
the hind wheel parsed over his right
shoulder and across his breast in the
opposite direction. It is thought that
he cannot possibly recover, hut at last
accounts was still living. There was
2,T00 pounds of hay, which, with the
weight of the wagon, made al>out 4,000
pounds that passed over his body.—
