Entered at the Postoffice at Butler as
THE election of Hugh McNiell, in
the Allegheny City State Senate dis- j
trict, is being contested. II is majority .
is only 31 aud a number of irregulari- ,
ties are alleged against his vote. I
C'ENTREVILLE Station, on the S. &
A. R. R-, will hereafter be called Wick
Station, the name being changed by
order of Superintendent Blair. Pine
Grove Station, above Harrisville, has
also been changed to Grove City, by
the same order.
IF the weather keeps good, the
road-bed of the Butler extension of th«
8. & A. will be ready for track-laying
the whole length by the Ist of Jan
uary. As it is, the work is going
bravely on undor tho direction of Mr.
W. W. Reed, the contractor.
THE following are the official totals
in tbe State on Governor :
Stewart, R - 43,(43
Armstrong, G. L.
Prttit, Pro 5,190
Pattison over Beaver 40,212.
In New York, Cleveland, Dem., for Governor
has 193,991 over Folger, Rep.
TUB editor of the Eagle, having
been convicted of misstatements, made
recently of certain persona and things,
instead of correcting himself, as an
honest man would, replies with coward
ly insinuations. That policy won't
- work. "Misery likes company," but
we can't be put in the same company
with that editor.
GOVERNOR elect Pattison declined
to attend a Democratic jollification in
, Chester county last week, "unless it
, was gotten up by the people regardless
, of party bias." This was sensible.
His first appointment, that of his
private Secretary, who voted for Lin
coln and Grant, also indicates that the
new Governor is disposed to start
out right and not to be governed by
old party lines.
THERE were some Republicans at
the late election who were HO "strait"
that they leaned a little over and voted
crooked on the county ticket, thus de
feating Mr. Braham for the Assembly.
Some of these men are looking for an
office in the near future. From tie
way the people are speaking out we in
cline to think that if they had it to do
over again they would have voted the
. "whole ticket," as they professed they
would. Who are the "traitors," now ?
Who are the "sick" men ?
IN our experience in politics, 512
votes is a large number for any man
or auy cause to obtain in a county the
population of this, when the man or
the cause hus to contend against old
organized party machinery ar.d party
money. lufact it is ouly a good cause
that would enable auy man to get that
large number of votes, under such cir
cumstances. Tbo largte Independent
Republican vute, 512, on the State
ticket in this couuty, can only be ac
counted for on the above ground.
FIOUHEI?, iu polit cal tvn estf», some
ti jies show queer footing upa. Hut in
the late election some of the footing ups
were more singular than u=ual. For
instance, Gen. Harry White, in his
Congressional district, was beaten just
an even thousand votes; the figuies
standing, White 12,990; Patton, 13>
990; majority for Paltou, 1,000.
Col. John M. Sullivan, Citizens can
didate for the State Senate, in the Al
legheny city district, had an even 2,200
votes, a number much larger than his
opponents accorded him and that as
tonished the friends of both the other
WE notice the following among the
proceedings of Court held at New
Castle last week by Judge Bredin. It
should be a warning to all from attempt
ing to influence jurors :
. "The following order has been made
by the Court, and placed in the hands
of the Sheriff:
In re rule of Thomas Wilson to
show cause why an indictment should
not be preferred against him: And
now order, Nov. 9, 1882, the Court
grant a rule on Thomas Wilson, a wit
ness in the case of Lawrence county ys.
the Overseers of the Poor of Scott
township, tried at last term,, to show
Cause why an indictment should not be
preferred against him for attempting to
influence the jurors impauneled in said
canse. Returnable to the 3d Monday
of January next.
Wilson is a resident of Worth town
ship, Butler county."
THE organization of tbe next State
Senate, being Republican, may be the
print of difficulty to pass for the party
ia this State. But we arc in favor of
union and harmony. Tbe next ap
portionment of the State into Con
gressional, Senatorial, etc. districts, it
is true is an important matter, and the
committees to be appointed by the re
spective branches of the Legislature to
take charge of that work should be fair
ones. From the party construction of
the two Houses this will have to be
done. And nothing can provent a fair
aid honest apportionment unless it be
a combination of the Cameron and
Wallace interests, as is feared by some.
If this should be attempted, iben defeat
of their schemes would be justifiable.
L t the presiding officer of the Senate,
to be chosen by that body, and the
committees on the apportionment he
may have to appoint, be fair ones as
regards the two wings of the party,
and we do not see at present that any
difficulty can arise.
| "UXCLB JACOB," of the Ilerald, gets
off, in hid issue last week, about the
most amusing thing of the late cam
paign. He briogs out bis rooster and
crows over his own election to the As
sembly. This was excusable on his
part, when we consider all the circum
Bv the way he appears to be making
good headway toward being chosen
Speaker of the next House by his Demo
cratic friends. Other members elected in
different parts of the State are being
urged, but the names of none of them
take like that of "Uncle Jake." The
Titusville Herald is wasting its energies
for the position upon a man named Mc-
Crum, of that city, who appears to
have been elected to the House. But
it is all of no use As our Titusville
cotemporary and friend was clever
enough, however, to refer favorably to
our remarks in favor of our townsman,
we give it the benefit of its argument
in favor of its candidate, McCrum, re
marking, however, that we have no
recollection of representing our candi
date to be of the great age that the be
low would seem to imply; but if we
did, we stick to it, and say, "The older
the better." But this is what our
Titusville friend has to say:
"The reason we prefer McCrum to
Uncle Jake is to convince the House
how much better McCrum understands
and can apply the Ziegler Manual than
the author himself.
The Butler CITIZEN lays great stress
upon the fact that "Uncle Jake" was a
contemporary of Andrew Jackson and
Thomas JefFerson, and the early Fath
ers of the Republic. But the party
has just seen fit to apply the "statute
of limitation" to Tilden, Seymour, and
the rest of Uncle Jake's playmates and
cronies, from 1800-1847, and why
should be complain ?"
Official Tote on Congress.
As the vote we gave last week for
Congress in this district, although
nearly correct, was not official, we give
below the official as counted up by the
Return Judges of the three counties at
Mercer last week; this county being
represented by Mr. I. S. P. DeWolf,
Crawford county by Mr. B. F. Porter
and Mercer county by H. B. Bowser,
Esq. The following is their finding.
Miller, Caldwell, Hoaglaad, Ogden.
Butler 3847 3604 29 222
Crawford.s2C2 (>3l 262
Mercer 4982 4439 427 337
Total ...14098 13305 1087 8«1
Miller's majority over Caldwell 733.
Mr. Miller received the Independent
Republican vote of the district nearly
entire, which secured his election.
We find the following in the Green
ville Shenango Valley News, of the
17th inst, relative to the coal operations
in and about Hilliards, this county ;
"The Acbarr mines are loading three
cars more of coal per day than they
did last week; Burnett mines one car
per day more*
Wick & Co. have their switch com
pleted except ballasting, and were ready
to commence mining last Monday.
They pay 85 cents for each 2240 pounds
There is work here now for more
than 100 miners, and as soon as the
works cau be fully opened out there
will be an increased demand for miners.
Turner & Card have had some trouble
with the entries dipping, but the pit
boss thinks the trouble is about over.
They have increased the shipment of
coal one car per day."
The coming Legislature in making
the new apportionment of Representa
tive, Senatorial and Congressional dis
tricts in this State will have a number
of questions to study and consider.
For instance, the population of some
counties will be found not as great
now as they were ten years ago, and
consequently their representation will
have to be decreased, while others will
have to be increased. In looking over
the vote polled for Governor at the late
election we notice, for instance, that
the whole vote of Venango county
foots up but 6547, while that of Butler
county foots up 7896, or 1349 more in
Butler than in Venango county; yet
Venango has three members in the
Legislature while Butler has but two.
Ten years ago Venango, by reason of
oil business, had a greater population
than now, and the decrease of that
business has decreased her population.
This is but one feature that will have
to be considered in making the new
Volume No. SO.
Last week commenced a new Volume
the CITIZEN, being No. 1 of volume
20. The paper is, therefore, entering
upon its twentieth year; and it will be
fourteen years by next spring since we
have been editing it. We had intend
ed to refer to this fact last week, in the
hope that it might attract the notice of
some who are nearly half that time be
hind in their subscription accounts.
Others a r e buck three, four and five
years. As it is now commencing a
new volume, and as this is the time of
year in which papers are generally
taken for winter use, or back accounts
squared up with those already taken,
we would ask all who know themselves
indebted to forward their amounts due.
To those out ot this and in other
States, to whom the CITIZEN continues
to go, we would particularly direct this
notice. We are sending it into almost
every Western State; into one State,
Kansas, we send quite a number Of
copies, and our distant friends, general,
ly old Butler county people, are as a
rule prompt in letting us hear from
them once a year. But some are for
getting this matter. Will they let us
hear from them before the first of
January coming ?
We intend enlarging the CITIZEN
soon and otherwise improving it.

The following communication writ
ten by a gentleman of our borough
for the Commercial Oazette, and pub
lished in that paper of the ICth inst.,
we commend and republish. It con
t*insrecollections of past events in this
State, but their application to the pres- |
ent, and the spirit in which it is
written, should be accepted by all Re
"In the late election we have ex
perienced the truth of the motto:
"United we staud, divided we fall."
The vote shows that Governor-elect
Pattison has not a majority of the
whole vote, and if the combined vote
of General Beaver and Senator Stew
art would unite, the Republican ma
jority in tho State would be over 12,-
000. What is to be done to harmon
ize conflicting elements that have, we
may hope, caused only a temporary
estrangement? Past events may throw
some light on our pathway towards a
j permanent and satisfactory reunion.
V ben the Democratic party was rent
in twain in 1835 by one of the most
serious discordant elements, two State
conventions were held. One presided
over by the late Chief Justice Thomp
son nominated George Wolf for Gov
ernor for a third term. The anti-Wolf
delegates, being a minority of the
convention, protested against the nom
ination and at oncemet and, under the
presidency of the same gentleman,nom
inated Henry A. Muhlenberg. The
Democratic party with their two can
didates in the field battled bravely,
not so much with hope of success as
to test the relative strength of the hos
tile factions. Governor Wolf's vote
was 65,804 —Mr. Muhlenberg's 40,536.
The result proved disastrous to the
Democratic party and resulted in the
election of Joseph Ritner by a plurali
ty vote of 8,186. At once commenc
ed plans of reconstruction and concilia
tion, though the elements of discord
were deep-seated and the contest was
of the most embittered character.
Both wings of the party had to bd
recognized as Democratic and uo os
tracism by the national administration
against either wing of the party was to
be tolerated. Van Buren, as Presi
dent, was appealed to by leading men
of both parties He at once determin
ed to use the best means in his power
to suppress antagonism, and if possi
ble unite the party. He appointed
Muhlenberg as Minister to Vienna
ant 1 Wolf Collector of the Port of
Philadelphia. This recognition went
far to restore confidence, allay bad
feeling and unite the party. The
union was so f:»r perfected that at the
time of the Gubernatorial election in
1838 the Democratic party was united
and elected by a large majority David
R. Porter over Joseph Ritner, and
ever after has continued a united par
ty. The appointments of Wolf and
Muhlenbere gave the then Senators,
Buchanan and Sturgeon, an opportuni
ty to show their magnanimity by a con
firmatory vote, and all differences ex
isting between them as to the dispen
sation of patronage was harmonized.
At that time the Democratic party
recognized the action of the President
and of the Senators as a step in the
right direction, and one that tended
largely to unite the party. It remov
ed humiliation from both wings of the
The time has passed for keeping up
the strife in the Republican party if
we hope to regain the lost ground as
manifested at the late election, and the
work should at once be commenced to
conciliate the conflicting elements. The
mission of the Republican party is not
ended. Its principles are too dear to
the American people to allow personal
dislikes to interpose in a crisis that so
eminently demands the adoption of
wise and conciliatory measures. Let
the work of reconciliation begin at
once, and progress on a basis alike
honorable to all; it is certain that no
other union would promise or assure
future success. P.

Gov. Hoyt has issued the following
"In common with all the inhabitants
of the land, the people of this State
have just cause of thankfulness to
Almighty God for the manifold, mate
rial, intellectual and spiritual fruits
and increase of the year.
Now, therefore, I, Henry M. Hoyt,
Governor of Pennsylvania, do ordain
and appoint Thursday, the 30th day
of November, 188*2, as recommended
by the President of the United States,
a day of thanksgiving and prayer, to
the end that the citizens of the Com
monwealth, of ever race, creed and
condition, together with the wayfarer
and sojourner therein, may gather at
the altar and the hearth to give thanks
to God, to implore a continuance of His
favor, to renew and strengthen, in
kindness of heart and act, social and
domestic ties, and to set apart, out of
the abundance of the year, one day as
a sign and covenant of their faith,

SCNBURY, BUTLER Co., Pa., Nov. 7.
EDITOR or CITIZEN Thinking that
some items of news from our quiet town
might be of interest to your readers, I
send a brief account of the closing ex
ercises of our Academy, held on last
Friday night. Tho exercise was not
as in former years a general exhibition
in which all the pupils appeared on the
stage and participated in the perform
ance, but a select entertainment. The
increased number of students in at
tendance this year made the former
exercise quite unpracticable, there being
over 60 pupils. The public exercises
on Friday night showed wisdom in the
selection, care in the preparation, and
skill in the music, and fn the delivery
of essays, declamations and orations.
The performance lasted nearly two
hours. The audience was well enter
tained nnd when, at 9 o'clock, the end
of the programme was reached, many
left saying they wished there were
more performances to be enjoyed.
Another new feature of this enter
tainment waa two pieces of instruraen
cal music, which, though the selections
were difficult, were so well rendered as
to give good hope that this department
will soon take its place side by side
with the vocal training which in our
school has always stood " par excel
Many of those pursuing their
studies here during the term were
teachers, and will go to their winter
work without delay. Others, with
those who are not ready, enter
school till the Winter term, will re
turn on Nov. 27ih. Till then our
little berg will be unusually quiet.
THE ELECTRIC STORM.
The Phenomenon HH Experi
enced Throughout IheConn
iry and In Europe.
XEW YORK, November 17.—Tele
graphic communication has been gen
erally interrupted to-day by an excep
tionally severe electric storm. Ex
perienced telegraphers say that it was
the worst of the kind for many
years. The storm extended through
out the United States and the eastern
provinces of Canada. The cables
were hours behind. It is snowing at
Buffalo, Albany and Boston, and is
several inches deep at the two latter
CHICAGO, November 17.—The offi
cials of the Western Union Telegraph
Company here say the electrical dis
turbances in this" country to-day are
the most pronounced and wide-spread
experienced for years, if indeed they
have been paralleled, in some respects,
at any time. An electrical storm of
the greatest violence raged in all the
territory from a point beyond Omaha
and from Kansas City north to the
terminus of the telegraph communica
tion, practically putting a stop to tele
graph seryice over the entire area. It
first began to be felt about 4 o'clock
this morning, and increased in intensi
ty till about 9:45, when communica
tion from every direction was cut off.
This electric storm seemed to go in
successive negative and positive
waves, alternately neutralizing the
currents on the wires or increasing
their intensity, and to such a degree
aB to burn everything up. A switch
board here was on fire a dozen times
during the forenoon, and a half dozen
keys of the instruments were melted
by tbe current, which continued to
pass through with screw turned up
and tbe points parted to their farthest
limit. Duplex and quadruplex wires
were rendered entirely useless, and at
noon but a single wire out of fifteen
between this city and New York was
iu operation and it was frequently in
terrupted. Word was received from
Milwaukee that the atmospheric elec
tricity coming in one of its wires from
the country had such dynamic power
as to suffice for keeping the electric
lamp burning. All business at the
office here is subject to delay. Even
the Associated press reports were in
yariably delayed, and up to one o'clock
this afternoon less than 500 words had
In an interview, the night manager
of the Western Union Telegraph Com
pany, at one o'clock, stated that the
electric storm throughout the country
still continued and the regular business
of the telegaaph company was carried
on under great difficulties. The dis
turbance is unlike any heretofore ex
perienced, as it appears to act upon
the wires in strong waves, causing
constant charging of the polarity of
currents. Reports from Omaha state
that the aurora is very brilliant at that
point, the illumination being almost as
light as day. At St. Paul it is report
ed the heavens have a blood-red color.
Cheyenne reports the illumination at
that point as "bright as day." The
telegraph company devised a new
trick to beat the aurora. When, on
account of the great induction, it was
impossible to work with one wire, they
discovered that by taking two wires
from the ground between any two giv
en points and joining their ends togeth*
er (instead of being grounded) a cir
cuit was form that could be successful
ly worked. In this way eight wires
between Chicago and Buffalo were
made to do the service as four. All
long wires were broken up into short
curcuits by which means New York
aod tbe far Western points are reached.
CINCINNATI, November 17.—The
electrical storm began to be observed
bere on tbe eastern wires at 8 A. M.
Its effects gradually increased until at
10:30 this place was completely sur
rounded. The storm reached south
east as far as Augusta, Ky. Wires
were worked here to Columbus and
St. LOUH with the battery at this end.
The wires were very heavily charged,
a flame appearing when contact was
CLEVELAND, November 17.—A mag
netic storm of remarkable force and un
paralleled duration prevailed here,
commencing about 4 o'clock A. M.,
prostrating telegraph communication
until noon, when it began to abate.
At intervals the wires were worked
without the battery and with ground
connection. One line was worked
with a metalic circuit by making a
loop with Cincinnati wires. The dis
trict call wires and short lines were
not much affected and telephonic com
munication seemed to be improved. An
extraordinary feature is that the
weather is rainy and muddy, whereas
electric storms occur .when the weath
er is clear and dry.
WASHINGTON, November 17.—The
electric storm at noon to-day almost
suspended operations in the Western
Union office. At intervals the wires
were worked solely by the auroral cur
rent. Tbe needle in tbe galvanometer
oscillated iu the most eccentric man
ner,—varying as much as eighty de
grees. Experienced operators say it
was tbe most remarkable electric storm
for many years.
YANKTON, Novomber 17.—Fully
two-thirds of the sky was ablaze to
night with light of many colors, a rare
phenomenon in this region Tbe tele
graph wires refused to work during
tbe entire forenoon.
MILWAUKEE, November 17. —Strong
currents of uncontrollable electricity
pervaded the atmosphere and actually
suspended all telegraph communication
at this place from 9 A. M. until after
noon An electric lamp attached to a
St. Paul wire made a brilliant illum
ination without the use of a battery.
Business on 'Change was virtually
suspended on account of lacking tele
graphic faculties. At 2P. M. all the
telegraph offices resumed work again.
TORONTO, November 17.—The mag
netic disturbance to-day was the most
violent for many years, with the excep
tion of the 16th of April last. The
measurements at the observatory
showed that in less than two minutes
time the horizontal force of the earth's
magnetism changed nearly one-tenth
of the whole.
LONDON, November 17.—A great
magnetic storm is prevailing on the
continent and throughout the United
Kingdom, causing serious interrup
tions of telegrams.

Swindling »he Soldi , r.
There seems to be no end «>f devices
which the fertile brains of claim age its
originate for the purpose ol swindling
tbe soldiers. A copy of a circular has j
found its way to the War Department,
which has caused many a veteran to
throw away ass bill. It is directed
to old soldiers, promising to procure
an honorable discharge for theui under
Tbe circular reuds as follow.-:
NEW AND HONORABLE DISCHARGE FoR j
SOLLtIERS OF TOE LATE WAR
There are many thousand soldiers j
who ha\e by some means lost their
discharges since the war. To all such
let us say, it is of great importance to
get them renewed, as certificttes of
honorable service for your country.
There are also mnny thousands who
were absent for various causes when
their company was mustered out, and
never received a discharge. To all
such let us say, you should lose uo
time in making application for a final
discharge from the service. We cau
obtain one, no matter what was the
cause of your absence. To those who
have once received a discharge aud
lost it we will procure new certificates
of the discharge for the small su.n of
$5 cash. For those who were never
discharged we will get a discharge for
Iss cash. In every case the money
must be in advance to pay expenses.
Now, if you have no discharge, please
answer three questions in full aud re
turn this blank to us, with the cash
above named, and we will at once
procure a discharge for you. So don't
delay in filling this out. State the
company and regiment you were in
and for which you want a discharge
The blank to be filled is as follows:
Soldier's name in lull, postoffice ad
dress in full, letter of company, num
ber of regiment, what State did he go
from, date of enlistment, how long did
yon enlist for, date of discharge, place
where discharged; now state how you
lost your discharge, when, and give
dates. If you never were discharged
please state on the following lines why,
giying full and complete particulars.
Make a plain and truthful statement.
If you do not use this blank please
hand it some soldier who wants a dis
N. W. FITZGERALD <fe Co.,
U. S. Claim Agents, Washington, D.
The offer to procure tbe discharge,
no matter what was the cause of ab
sence, is understood in the circular.
Such a proposition, which substantial
ly promises an honorable discharge for
a deserter, stamps the thing as a swin
ble, as the agent knows very well that
he can do nothing of the kind Still
he directs that $5 be sent to him for
this impossible service. There are
many soldiers who Could now obtain a
pension but for the fact that the records
show them to have been deserters.
No doubt hundreds of such persons
think that by somo hook or crook the
agent can straighten their record and
enable them to practice a fraud on the
government. Should the agent then
simply pocket their five dollar bills
they are not in a position to grumble.
On the other hand, there are many
honorably discharged soldiers who
have lost their papers, and these sim
ply lose their money by sending it to
a claim agent, because General Drum
says that tbe application of a soldier
made direct, receives exactly as prompt
attention as when sent through a claim
agent.— lndiana, Pa., Messenger.
