For Eitriii'Mi Opposition toGen.
Beaver, Slitu-d l>> C«ur
tieUl's Friend, T. H .
To the Editor of the Dispatch.]
With your permission I will be
pleased to say a few things in your
columns in favor of the Independent
movement now agitating the State.
The effect of this movement, as I
understand it, is to return to the prin
ciples of the founders of the Republi
can party —principles exemplified iu
the lives and sealed by the death of its
last great leaders, Lincoln and Garfield.
When the foundation of the party was
laid in justice and equal rights, the
Bosses andspoils system were unknown
to it. But now in the State of Penn
sylvania leaders of the party have given
place to Bosses and principles to
Machine methods. The politician oc
cupies the seat of the statesman, and
the council chamber has become a star
chamber. Intrigue is rewarded and
ability punished. Tbe stream of gov
ernment is lie poisoned at the fountain,
and the sovereign voters are becoming
corrupt, many looking forward to
primary meetings and election day as a
harvest in which to reap the wages of
May it not as truly be said now as
it was of the Christian Church, that
there are many false Republicans who
have "arisen in these latter days who
have deceived many, and if it were
possible, some of the very elect." "The
mystery of iniquity is already at work,
and he who now hinders will hinder
until be be taken out of the way." Has
not the time arrived when judgment
should begin in the Republican bouse
and the Bosses who have polluted it,
even worse than the money-changers
did the Temple of God, should appear
at the bar of an outraged people. Who
made them rulers over you ? Have
they humbled themselves that they
should be exalted ? Do they ask or
do they demand your suffrages in sup
port of the ticket which they impose
upon you ?
THE HARRTSBURG TICKET.
This brings me to consider the nom
inations which were made iu Harris
burgh on the 10th of May. How
many people in this Commonwealth
had privilege to express their choice at
primaries or in public convention ?
Out of 67 counties but few had wrested
this privilege from the Bosses; tbe
rest were represented by County Com
mittees, who were not chosen for this
Before supporting this Stalwart
ticket let every voter ask : Was I con
sulted individually or by my legally
appointed representative in regard to
the choice of this ticket ? It is impos
ed upon me, or is it my own free will
and choice? The convention at Har
risburg was not Republican in its
make-up or spirit. It was dominated
by Boss rule and the small Stalwart
Faction of the great party with Machine
methods. It was acknowledged to be
Stalwart, and was so called by leading
papers advocating this faction, and
that, too, without a blush, when the
very word, as applied to politics, has
become a stench and a hissing since it
svas used in triumph by the assassin
aver the prostrate form of the Nation's
I come now to speak of persons
nominated by this Stalwart Conven
tion. Against General Beaver per
sonally we have nothing to say. We
Eire willing to grant all that political
friends have to say in regard to his
ability, character and sacrifice on the
battlefield In this contest it is not
the man we oppose, but the political
principles he represents. Such a man
as Beaver will perpetuate the domina
tion of the Bosses and Stalwart faction
much more surely than a man of less
character and ability. If Republicans
are called upon to support him because
he was a brave soldier, why should
they not have supported Hancock and
many other Democrats from time to
time for the same reason? There is
no one good quality which he may
possess, whether it be his bravery as a
soldier, his ability as a public speaker,
his character or attainments as a lawyer
that have not been possessed by Dem
ocrats for whom Republicans have re
fused to vote times without number.
Why then should or should we not
vote for Beaver ? This question must
be determined by his political standing
and affiliations. He asks the suffrages
of a political party, and is supposed to
embody certain political principles.
How are we to judge of these prin
ciples? By a platform which was
laughed to scorn when its planks were
put under his feet, and has been openly
and shamelessly violated since with his
knowledge ? No! But by his past
record and acts. I wish it to be borne
in mind just here that General Beayer
said in his speech of acceptance, "I
have made no pledge to a living man
«vs to what my future course shall be."
Let us for a moment aualyze this
sentence, which has been repeated to
bis praise. Any confederation of men
may select one of their number as a
leader when bis past record is a pledge
of his future loyalty. Why have a
right to ask, nay, even demand "a
pledge of what his future course shall
be ?" Certainly not the Stalwarts or
the 30G. His past record is a sufficient
pledge to them. Who, then, should
ask a pledge in regard to his "future
NO STEP RETRACED.
These only who do not want the
history of the lasttwo years repeated.
Has General Beaver retraced a step,
retraced a word or confessed a political
fault? If not, it is those who do not
believe in his political words and deeds
who want assurrance that be will sin
no more against their political faith.
Wo are opposed to Gen. Beaver because
we cannot endorse his past political
record, and he gives us no "pledge of
what bis future course shall be." He
comes to us from the Stalwart camp
and commands an unconditional sur
render. He comes to us first holding
in his hands credentials from a packed
i convention in Harrisburg to Chicago,
marked "Unit Rule, 1880." He comes
back to us from Chicago marked "30G"
iu memory of the defeat of the trinuii as.
He comes to us now rewarded for all
this and more from the Boss-Stalwart
convention of May 10th, as its nomi
nee for Governor, and yet he gives us
"no pledge of what bis futnre course
shall be.'' If, then, General Beaver
unjustly opposed the nomination of
Blaine at Chicago against the will of
his own constituents and a majority of
the Republicans in the State; if, in
order to accomplish this, he endorsed
the uuit rule, which would destroy dis
trict representations and perpetuate
Boss dominion ; if he championed this
rule and the cause which fell at Chicago,
and was only revived by the assassin ;
if he was first named, slated and finally
nominated by the Stalwart Bosses ; if
all this can truthfully be said of hitn
politically, why should Republicans be
censured for not supporting him, when
they believe such principles and prac
tices to be deadly political evils ?
I oppose him because I believe he
has championed the worst cause, and
his election would be an endorsement
of the worst political faction known to
American politics. If the people of
Pennsylvania who joined to defeat the
Chicago scheme were right then, they
would not be right now in joining to
elect Beaver. To me the death of Gar
field teaches one thing, while the elec
tion of Beaver would teach another. I
believe that we have a right to preach
the death of Garfield, and tell the story
of his life to reform this Nation and
call on the Stalwarts to repent instead
of becoming our rulers. In regard to
the nominee for Lieutenant Governor,
I have this to say : It is understood
that Senator Davies was defeated as the
Republican nominee for State Treasurer
last year, because of the mortal wound
of Garfield. He is now rewarded by
his betrayers because he humbly sub
mitted to this indignity and kissed the
hand that smote him.
The men who lead our columns were
not slated, did not seek the place, but
were asked to become standard bearers
in this great battle for political freedom.
They are men qualified by nature
and culture to fill the high positions to
which they are called. The Hon. John
Stewart, who leads the ticket, was
graduated at Princeton, served In the
army, is a lawyer of high standing—
distinguished as one of the framers of
our present Constitution. He is an
accomplished orator, a statesman of
acknowledged ability, a member of our
State Senate, and the champion of re
form in this body where corruption has
run riot for years. His past record is
the best "pledge of what his future
course will be." The whole ticket is
composed of men who love the people's
cause, who are able, true and patriotic,
all but one having hazarded their lives
that the nation might live, two having
left limbs on the battlefield ; but now
are fighting a brayer and nobler battle,
against greater odds, for political and
moral freedom. Such are the leaders
in the conflict of the people with the
Bosses, which is and will be the
greatest war waged on American soil.
This conflict, like that of slavery and
freedom, is irrepressible, but threatens
more directly the life of the Nation by
subverting the sovereign will of the
It requires but the casual reader of
history to discover the same corrupt
causes at work in this Government
which have preyed upon the vitals,
been visible in the death throes and ac
complished the final dissolution of the
greatest Nations of the earth. There
can be no worse government than that
of a corrupt populace. Political cor
ruptionists are poisoning the great
fountain of political life, and its streams
are becoming corrupt and full of death.
So corrupt has our politics become that
many trood men turn from it with
loathing and disgust, saying: "I
won't dabble in politics ; It is a muddy
pool." But they forget that down in
the caucus primaries and committee
rooms is generated the power which
runs the Slate and Nation. If these
great engines of power be given over
to the corruptionists, with whom you
3ay you cannot mingle without becom
ing contaminated, what is your hope
in the future of this Government, which
was established by our pilgrim fathers,
to guarantee political and religious
freedom ? Why oommit all your in
terest to such men? If the growing
disgust of the good citizens with poli
tics continues it requires no prophet
to tell that this State and Nation will
30on be hopelessly wrecked. Why ac
cumulate property and provide homes
for your children if the political stream
is already so corrupt that you cannot
drink from its fountain. Let me say
to every good citizen who refuses to
Lake part in politics because it is a
niuduy, dirty, filthy pool, that you do
a greyious wrong. The hope of our
country is bound up in this very pool
and your children will drink its deadly
waters if you do not help to purify
them now. You have no right to leave
your posterity such a heritage of woe.
Space will not allow me to go into a
history of the rise and progress of the
spoils system and corruption, but will
only briefly glance at some recent
events. One outgrowth of this was
the nomination at Chicago, for Vice
President, of a New York politician
who was dismissed from office by
President Hayes upon this very ground,
He was proclaimed President by an
assassin, a Stalwart of Stalwarts. Not
contented with his high position, and
the control of the Governmeat and all
its appointments, he has invaded the
rights of the States, and (presumed to
appoint a Governor of New York from
his Cabinet, and now expects the peo
ple of that great State to ratify bis ap
pointment, the same as he did the
Senate to confirm the appointment of
Itoscoe Conkling. It is not difficult to
see that the coming battle is not only
with the Pennsylvania Bosses, but
with his Imperial Majesty so lately
shot into power, as well as with all
those who represent these principles
in National politics. It is a war of
the soyereign people against usurers.
It is to regain the right wrested from
them ■, the right to chooße their rulers,
instead of having them appointed by
imperial Bosses and elected by assess
j ments, bribery, corruption and fraud.
What hope have the Stalwarts in
electing their ticket? None, verily,
except by using the corruption fund
wrung from office-holders by enforced
assessments, not only in violation of
their platform, but in violation of the
principles of honor, justice and right.
I>aniel Webster aud President Hayes
thought it sufficient ground for remov
al from office when a federal officehold
er paid an assessment levied on him
for political purposes. But Cooper
and Hubbell reverse this order and
cause the discharge of officeholders for
non-payment of assessments. Can so
large a fund as is being collected by
assessments and subscriptions be used
by the "Regulars"—or rather Regula
tors—in a legitimate way ? It is a
well-known fact that a vast trade has
been carried on for years by the Penn
sylvania Bosses in the purchase of
ballots ; in buying citizenship ; yet
these corruptionists well knew that
this crime, if punished as should be,
would consign them and their victims
to a felon's cell, and forever debar
them of the right to vote or hold of
fice in this State, and furthermore,
that there is no law by which they
could ever regain the'sacred right of
citizenship, "although they might
seek it carefully and with tears." Do
they hope to win this election as they
did others, by traffic in votes, by
trading in soverignty, by enslaving
liberty itself? As the campaign now
stands there is not an informed man
who can have the slightest hope of
Beayer's election, without the whole
sale purchase of citizenship in his be
half. Sovereign voters, are you pre
pared for thief? Prepared to lay down
your at the feet of the Boss aud
not only become bis slave, but a crim
nal and outcast in the laud of equal
rights and liberty ? No ; but rather
smite the hand that offers the bribe in
purchase of your honor, your maohood,
everything you hold dear under the
Government, which is yours and which
you should preserve and transmit to
posterity undiminished in glory.
THE BOSSES' ARGUMENTS.
I pass now to notice the arguments
offered by these Stalwart nominees in
favor of their own election. These
may be summed in four points : The
achievements of the Republican party,
the tariff, the ascendancy of the Dem
ocratic party in the State and endan
gering Republican victory in 1884.
While they laud the achievements of
the Republican party they forget that
what is accomplished for the Nation is
one thing and what its Boss legislation
has done in our State is quite a dif
ferent thing. While, on the one hand
its deeds have been glorious, on the
other, it has made Pennsylvania poli
tics and Pennsylvania legislation
a stench in the nostrils of the Nation.
This last dark chapter they do not
read. In regard to the tariff it might
be well to state here that no Senator,
nominee or prominent man in the In
dependent party has threatened it in
case of defeat. Can they say as much ?
A tariff is fully endorsed by the
platform. This question is only rais
ed as a blind. It is well known to be
practically settled in Pennsylvania.
In regard to defeating the Stalwart
party and permitting the Democratic
party to succeed, my answer is two
fold First, our principles are right,
and being right they must and will
prevail. Second, while the coming
into power of the Democratic party
may not be desirable, yet this same
cry against all reform movements,
both in Church and State, has been
raised from time immemorial It
has been met and fully answered
times without number. It requires
but a glance at the grand sweep of
reform in all ages to see that if such
a silly cry had been heeded that dark
ness would "cover the earth and
gross darkness the people." In re
gard to their last point, we feel as
sured that if Beaver is elected in
Pennsylvania and Folger in New
York by corrupt methods, which must
be their only hope, it will be a vin
dication of the spoils system, and all
the corrupt machinery and patronage
in State and Nation will immediate
ly brought to bear to secure the nom
ination of a spoils man for President
in 1884, which will ultimate in de
feat, or a success which will be still
more ignominious than defeat. The
Independents are fighting this battle,
not only for the present, but for 1884
and for all time. There can be no
hope of success in 1884 except by
the overthrow of the methods which
dominate in Pennsylvania now.
This is the only organized move
ment in State or Nation inspired by
the death of Garfield, and which has
inscribed upon its banners these
prophetic words : "The cause for which
Garfield died must not be lost." In
the light of history we plainly read
that if its principles do not finally
triumph our Government will be
hopelessly wrecked and Garfiajd shall
have died in vain. His death stirred
the Nation and world as no human
death has done in all the annals of
recorded time. He died at the head
of the most advanced Nation smitten
by the hand of a fit representative of
the most dire system of political wrong
which has yet assailed free govern,
ment. Do not those who are in this
movement understand the lesson of
Garfield's death ? Can they not see in
it the final subversion of all their lib
erties, unless the great evil is crushed
beneath the indignant tread of brave
people as they march on to poseas and
hold the ground on which their ad
vanced and chosen leader fell ? While
this movement first began in Penn
sylvania, it will not end here, but will
will go on and on, over all the
land, until State, Territory and Nation
shall be purified, redeemed and lifted
up to the high position which God and
its founders designed, and for which
its heroes fought and martyrs died.

Tbe London Lancet relates a dis
tressing case of suicide of a boy ten
years old, who bad been shut up in bis
bodroom as a puuisbruent. Tbe editor
comments adversely on lea ring children
or young persons and tbe weakly or
troubled in mind alone :
'"The solitary state is abhorrent to
the nature and miud of man. Whe:ber
the brain be immature iu its develop
ment or morbid in its state, it is wrong
in a scientific sense—that is, opposed
to tbe laws aud teachings of physiologi
cal science—to leave it alone. Tbe
possibility—we will even concede tbe
probability—of a subsidence of excite
ment is not a sufficient set-off against
the dangers of a self-destructive intel
lectual activity. Tbe mind always
works to its own injury wben it works
aiuue. inflection, introspection, and
self-examination are essentially ab
normal processes. The proper action
of mind is on the outer world, or on
such conceptions of fact aud object as
may be readily corrected by preseot
observation or experience. Abstract
processes of thought are never safe lor
the young or the weakly and troubled
in mind. Healthy activity, so far as
these two conditions of mind are con
cerned, is directly relative. It is not
good for man to be alone in auy sense.
We would therefore again protest
against the recourse to solitary con
finement as a punishment for children,
and against 'seclusion' in any form for
the unsound of mind. The two
methods of treatment&tand 03 the same
footing, and they are both equally bad."
"Tbe 6un shall not smite thee by
day, nor the moon by night." This
beautiful verse expresses tbe belief, com
mon in ancient days, that the moon-ex
ercises a baleful influence upon those
exposed to her direct rays In modern
times, tbe pernicious influence of the
moon has been doubled and even
denied. But jvhatever the influenoe of
the moon in the temperate zones,
withia the tropics it is very injurious
to sleep exposed to its rays, especially
when at the full. On a voyage to the
Antipodes, when near the line, a
Maltese sailor, who was a most com
ical fellow, slept for some hours on
the boom with his face toward the
full moon. On awaking in the morn
ing, the muscles on the right side of
the face were contracted, so that every
attempt to speak was attended with
tbe most ludicrous contortions. Feel
ing sure that something was seriously
wrong, he spoke to another sailor,
who, supposing that as usual he was at
bis old tricks, burst out into laughter.
Off he went to another, with exactly
the same result. The poor fellow now
?ot into a rage, thereby adding not a
little to the ludicrousness of tbe scene.
After awhile the truth dawned upon the
captain and officers of the vessel The
ioctor gave him some medicine, the
muscles gradually relaxed, and in the
course of a week our Maltese friend
was well again. Some five or six years
igo, when sailing from Tahiti to Man
yaia, a little boy of mine, in perfect
bealth, was thoughtlessly placed by
bis nurse in his berth, the slanting
beams of tbe moon falling on his face.
Next morning he was feverish and ill,
and it was two or three days before he
was himself again. On the island of
Aituka, a native woman was watching
night after night for the return of her
husband from the island of Atiu.
Whilst doing so one night she fell
asleep, the moon's rays pouring upon
her face. On awaking she felt ill, and
her eyes were drawn on one side.
Considerable interest was felt by the
islanders in her case. Eventually,
however, her eyes were restored.
These facts illustrate the iujnry done
to human beings in the topics. Yet I
never beard of insanity or death re
sulting from this cause. It is well
known, however, in tropical countries
that the moon's rays occasion the rap
id decomposition of flesh and fish.
A number of bonatis baring been
caught one evening near the line by a
friend of mine, the spoil was bung up
in tbe rigging of the ship, and was ex
posed to the moon through the night.
Next morning it was cooked for break
feast. Symptoms of poisoning were
soon exhibited by all who partook of
it—their heads swelling to a great
size, etc. Emetics were promptly
administered, and happily no one died.
The natives of tbe South Pacific are
careful never to expose fish (a constant
article of diet in many islands) to the
moon's rays by any chance. They
often sleep by the sea-shore after fishing;
but never with the face uncovered.
The aboriginals of Australia do the
same as well as they can with their fish
iug-uets, etc. A fire answers the same
purpose. May not the injurious in
fluence of the moon (in addition to ber
beauty and utility) account fer the
almost universal worship of that orb
throughout the heathen world ?

their religious scruples, two marriage
