BUTLER CITIZEN JOHN H. 4 W. C. NEGLEY, PROP'RS, Entered at the Postoffice at Butler «s second-classs matter. WEDNESDAY, MAY 16, 1883. DON'T fail to hear Prof. Slack in the Court House to-morrow, Thursday evening. A CALL has been issued by the State Chairman of the Prohibition party (or a State Convention, to be held at Pitts burgh, May 29 coming. HON. S. H. MILLER has appointed Mr. Frank Russell, of Mercer county, to a cadetship in the Naval Academy at Annapolis, for this Congressional district. THE primary election being fixed for as early a date as June 2d, two weeks from Saturday next, will compel the candidates to stir about pretty lively, in order to have a reasonable turn out at the polls. THE County Committee, at its meet" ing last Saturday, approved of the res olution it passed last June, requiring the Chairman of the Committee to furnish blanks for the holding of the primaries. We are informed by the Chairman, Mr. Stephenson, that he will see this matter attended to, as well as possible, for the coming primaries. THE Eagle, of this place, through Mr. Robinson, continues to forget the old and sale adage that "he that lives in a glass house should never throw stones." The defeat of Mr. Braham last fall for the Legislature, it is well understood, was brou, ht about by his machinations. Mr. B. was a clear, fair and undisputed nominee ot the party in this county. There was no dispute about that; no two conven tions, no two set of candidates, like there were on the State ticket and upon which Republicans might and did differ. Then again (and we don't like to stir up old sore places) there is his never to be forgotten opposition to the election of Qen. Grant in 1872, al though fairly nominated for only his second term for the Presidency, and to which he was elected by an over whelming vote over Mr. Greeley, the Democratic nominee. In the language of the boys we would just say here to our neighbor, that he had better "dry up." In Full Bloom. Blossoms are thick upon the apple, peach, pear, cherry and plum trees, all of which are now in fnll bloom, and present a very hopeful appearance for plenty of fruit this year. The trees looking so fine, the general belief is there will be fine fruit crops. As to other crops, we hear no doubts except as to the wheat. It, from all reports, was frozen by the ice last winter in some places, and to some extent. The belief is, however, that there will be at least a half crop of wheat. COUNTY COMMITTEE MEET ING. Pursuant to notice the members of the Republican County Committee for this county assembled in the Court House on Saturday last. A majority of the Committee were present. The Committee came to order at the request of Mr. Walker, who, before doing any further business, stated to the Com mittee that in the interest oi harmony he desired to resign his position as Chairman of the Committee. Dr. Rumberger then stated that he regard ed himself but as a temporary Chair man and claimed no further rights than as such. Both gentlemen having thus resigned on motion of C. M. Brown, Esq., of Harrisville, James Stephenson, of Summit twp., was unanimously chosen Chairman of the Committcs for the balance of the term. S. W. McCollough, of Fairview twp., was on motion chosen Secretary. On motion, the time for holding the primary election for this year was fix fed for Saturday the 2d day of June, commencing at 2 o'clock p. M. On motion, the rules adopted by the Republican State Conventions of last year, in regard to the election of dele gates to State Conventions, be approv ed by this Committee. On motion, the Senatorial delegate for this year be conceded to Armstrong county. On motion, the Return Judges be directed to meet at the Court House on the Monday following the primaries being Monday June 4, at one o'clock p. M., to count up the votes and declare the result. The rule adopted last spring, requir ing the Chairman of the County Com mittee to have blanks for holding the primary prepared and sent to the dif ferent districts, was recognized and the Chairman to perform that duty. On motoin adjourned. S. W. MCCOLLOUGH, Sec'y. Call for Republican Primary Election and County Con vention. In obedience to above the Republi cans of Butler county are requested to meet at the regular place of holding the elections in each borough and town ship on the first Saturday, (2d) of June, to select oue candidate for Dis trict Attorney and one candidate for County Surveyor; also two delegates to the State Convention ; also one per son for return judge from each voting precinct, the same to meet at the Court House the following Monday (4th) to count the vote and transact any other business that may come be fore them. JAMES STEPHENSON, Chairman. S. W. MCCOLLOUGH, Secretary. PROHIBITORY BILL IN THE SENATE.—A STARTLING TEMPERANCE TREAT. Arthur Accused of Lugging Cus tom House Etiquette Into His Mansion and Breaking the Idols set up by Hayes. Special Telegram to the Dispatch.] HARRISBURG, May 10.—-Notwith standing the death and burial of the Prohibition bill with the compensation rider in the House, the similar measure introduced by Senator McKnight, to which no rider is attached, passed second reading in the Senate to-day. All the time spent upon it after its de feat iu the House cannot accomplish anything this session except putting the Senators on record. Three hours were devoted to the bill to-day, nearly all that time being consumed by a speech from Senator Nelson, the mild mannered, old styled gentleman from Wayne, who is a local Methodist preacher and sometimes takes the chaplain's place in opening the Senate with prayer. His attack upon Presi dent Arthur and the present social customs in the White House seemed entertaining to a majority of the Sena tors, even to such Stalwarts as Cooper, Handy Smith and Reyburn. Every body *rse awake during that part of the three-hour exhortation ; but when the sensation was over even the vigi lant constitutional oracle, Laird, went to sleep at his desk for the first time on record. SHOOTING AT BIG GAME. As Nelson is not one of those who have been running a race to see which could get the most eloquence into the Legislative Record, nobody seemed disposed to object to his prolonged effort to-day. Some of his fellow Dem ocrats and Field Marshal Cooper at times drew close to the speaker, as if to encourage him. When he said that he desired to call attention to what was going on among men in the highest positions in the gift of the people, all ( ears were pricked up. "As long," he said, "as the accidental, not Providen tial, President of the United States spreads his costly liquors before his guests at State dinners, with six wine glasses to every cover, I have no apology to make for advocating Con stitutional reform. Under the admin istrations of Messrs. Hayes and Garfield reform began at headquarters. The bottles and jugs were dumped into, the Potomac; the National mansion was scrubbed from cellar to garret and dedi cated to sobriety, virtue, purity and prayer. How changed the situation to-day. It is enough to make every patriotic citizen blush and hide his face for shame. PRETTY HARD ON ARTHUR. "Arthur in the New York Custom House is Arthur in the White House. The Ethiopean cannot change his skin, nor the leopard his spots. Driven out of the New York Custom House by Hayes, as the Master drove the Scribes and Pharisees out of the temple with a scourge, made Vice President by the votes of the people, and, in less than six months after the inauguration, President by a crank, taking the oath of office in his own parlor in New York city in such indecent haste at 1 o'clock iu the morning, so soon after the death of President Garfield at Long Branch, and then carrying into the temple of virtue and purity his nasty, filthy New York Custom House and pot-house practices of card-playing, treating, drinking, Sabbath breaking and Sun day fishing excursions 1 He gave all the public evils national sanction and notoriety." Stalwart Davies could bear this no longer, lie interrupted Nslson by asking if tho latter voted for Garfield. Nelson replied that he bad not. He voted for Hancock. "And do you think there would have been any difference between Hancock and Arthur ?" asked Davies triumph antly. "Aha," chuckled Cooper, looking at Nelson, "you'd better get away from that ground or you will be defeated." Nelson got around Davies' point by remarking that Hancock was not Pres ident. "Two years more of national humiliation and disgrace to come," he lamented. After quoting from a new s paper the account of the White House frolic carried on by the President's son while Arthur, as Nelson said, "was in Florida fighting fleas, shooting alli gators and catching catfish, with Chandler to bait his hook," he thanked heaven "that no woman shares with the President the responsibility of this retrograde movement," and for the credit of the nation and the sex he hoped that none ever would. As Nelson described "The shameful exhibition of drunkenness" by the statesmen who went to Garfield's funeral, tears moistened his cheeks and bis voice was broken by efforts to re press emotion. When he began to speak of the Yorktown spree, Cooper mischievously suggested that Nelson withhold his remarks on the subject on account of the temporary absence of Handy Smith, who was one of the com mittee to arrange for Pennsylvania representatives at Yorktown. Just then the jovial Smith entered, and after listening to Nelson's itemization of the Yorktown rum bill, he said, with a sigh, that he never bad the good fortune to be commissary on an occa sion so great as that. "Suppose I come a little near home," said Nelson "Yes, tell us about the legislators' Virginia experience last week," sug gested Evans, of Northampton, one of the many members who had come over from the House to hear the speech. A WEEKLY JAMBOREE. Nelson had not been on the Virginia trip and would not speak of it, but he said he was informed that there used to be a "jamboree" every week on the trains carrying the legislators home from Harrisburg—sprees just like the one that recently brought fatal disaster upon the New York legislators' train. "I guess it was the Wayne and Pika men whom your informant saw," said Cooper. Nelson drew an analogy between mere moral suasion and "a tariff for revenue only." "We don't tako any stock in a tariff for revenue only," he said. "Aw! aw! aw!" mockingly ex claimed half a dozen Republicans. When Nelson handed in petitions signed by an army of women for the ; passing of the bill, he assured the j Senate that the signatures were genuine. Laird asked him how he knew that ? "O, I know the gentleman from Westmoreland don't take any stock in the ladies," was Nelson's retort to th® bachelor statesman. Nobody but Nelson spoke for or against the bill. The vote by which it passed second reading stood 21 to 19, as follows: YEAS —Agnew, Aull, Boggs, Davie?, Emery, Greer, Harlan, Heri, Hughes, Lee, McCracken, MacFarlane, Mc- Knight, Smiley, Stewart and Watres, Republicans—lo. Coxe, Laird, Nel son, Wagner and Wallace, Democrats —5. Total 21. NAYS —Adams, Arnholt, Grady, Keefer, Mjlin, Smith, Stehman and Upperman, Republicans— 8. Biddis, Hart, Ilenniuger, Hess, Kennedy, King, Patton, Ross, Shearer, Sutton and Vandegrift, Democrats—ll. Total, 19. Cooper left before the vote to catch a train. Reyburn and Sill also went out before the vote. Gordon, Hall and Longenecker, McNeill, Lantz and Wolverton were not at the session Humes, who said that he would have voted for the bill, was paired with Lantz. Nelson moved to fix a special order for the third reading of the bill next Wednesday. Davies, although in favor of the bill, said that there was no use wasting time over it. Stewart replied that the Senate was in duty bound to act upon it, regardless of the action of the House. The arrival of the adjournment hour prevented action on Nelson's motion. SOME of the neighboring counties are taking steps to better the mode of nom inating district candidates, Congress and Senate candidates, where more than one county is in a district. This is an important matter and should receive the attention of County Committees. The present conferee system leads to deadlocks and sometimes to bargain and sale. A better mode should take its place. The Committee Meeting. The proceedings of the County Committee will be seen in another place. It gives us pleasure to state that entire harmony prevailed. It will be seen the new rules for the Republi can party in this State were approved and adopted by the committee for this county. The principal one of these rules is that relative to the selection of delegates to State Conventions. These have now to be voted for by the people at the primaries. We presume names will be announced the same as for other nominations. But if none should be so announced it will be because little is at stake this year. The members of the party, however, who assemble on June 2d should not fail to have upon their tickets when voting the names of two trustworthy Republicans to repre sent the county in the State Conven* tion of this year. The new machinery will thus be put in motion. Next year a candidate for President has to be chosen, and nearly all the county offices are to be filled. It was, there fore. important to start out right this year, and it was in this view the County Committee considered the matter. Bills Sent. —Notice. We have recently been compelled to send bills to some who are back in their subscription accounts for several years. We request payment, at least in part, during this month and before the first of June. This we do because we will need the amounts by that time, and what we desire to say now is, that we will expect these bills sent to receive some attention. Some are in arrears for six, seven and eight years. Liquidating a part now cer tainly is a duty. Calling or sending within this month will be duly appre ciated. MA 1111 IK I).
