ALBERT MECHLING,) ,
W. P. JAMESON. )"
THE grave of John Brown, the great
champion of the colored race, has no
monument over it and a movement has
been started to erect one, by general
contributions throughout the country.
THE creditors of the firm of Brown,
Bonnell & Co., of Youngstown, 0., and
who have large coal interest in this
county, have come together and made
a satisfactory arrangement for payment
the debts of the old firm.
THEY are obtaining immense gas
wells in Washington county, this
State. One, "a gusher," was struck
last week at the depth of 2,068 feet.
We get them in this county at 500
feet less than that. It looks as if gas
wonld soon be as important a produc
tion as oil and come into general use
for heating purposes.
A NOTABLE convention of representa
tives of the colored people of this Na
tion was held in Pittsburgh last week,
at which the interests, prospects and
fntnre political course of that race were
discussed. They complained of the
treatment of both political parties to
wards their people, but the general
sentiment among their speakers was to
remain with the Republican party for
the present. They seek the educa
tional advancement of their race, which
is a matter of much importance to this
A NEW way to get a case continued,
that yon do not want to try, is to find
some objection to the manner in which
the jury wheel has been filled. Court
was compelled to discharge all jurors,
witnesses and parties and adjourn the
Court this week, simply because the
attorney of a defendant, who did not
want the case against him] tried, made
an objection to the manner in which
the jury wheel had been filled. By
consent of the parties any trial could
go on,and any such defect be thus cured,
bnt if objected to, the only thing the
Court can do is to adjourn the court.
The attorney acting in this way should
be made pay the costs the county has
been put to. The Court in this instance
was in no manner to blame.
Blaine Leading Largely.
Nearly all of the Slates have now
held their conventions and chosen their
delegates to the Chicago National Con
vention, for the nomination of Repub
lican candidates for President and Vice
Maine, the adopted State of Blaine >
again unanimously endorses him for
the nomination. Kansas, lowa, Min
nesota, Oregon, California, Colorado,
Maryland, West Virginia and Nevada
have instructed their full delegations
for him. Wisconsin and other States
are divided. From old Virginia there
are two sets of delegates chosen, one
straight Republican, for Blaine,and the
other, led by Mahone, for Arthur.
Edmunds has Massachusetts, Vermont,
Rhode Island aad a scattering vote in
in other States. Arthur will have the
vote of most of the Southern States.
The friends of Blaine now count up
357 votes for him on first ballot. It
takes 411 to nominate, and it is sup*
posed the balauce necessary will soon
come to his aid. We do not see how
his nomination is to be prevented, and
it can only be done by a combination
of the friends of all the other candi
dates, which would seem impossible.
With either of the other prominent can
didates, Edmunds, Logan, or Sherman,
out of the way, Blaine's nomination
must follow. The names of Hawley
and others will be before the Conven
tion. but if Blaine, the people's choice,
H again set aside, we think the nomin
ation will go to Lincoln.
The Convention meets on June 3,
and its proceedings will be looked to
For the Citizen.
The Eagle has seen fit to abuse me
for the last two months: I don't know
that I have done anything to merit the
wrath of Thomas Robinson. Since I
am getting the blame I want to state
some facts in regard to the Judicial
In 1879 the First National Bank of
Butler with a capital stock of $50,000
failed for over SIOO,OOO.
The following persons are still in
debted to that bank in the amounts
Charles McCandless $ 70,000
John M. Greer 12.500
Thomas Robinson 3,870
Howard Colbert 4,644
Alex Mitchell 4,500
More than enough to jbuild a new
Court House. The National Banking
Act forbids any person or any firm to
become liable to any National Bank for
more than 10 per cent, of its capital
Btock. Ten per cent, of $50,000 would
be $5,000. The law limited McCand
-1 less and Greer's liability to $5,000 each,
yet the bank failed with one owing $70,-
000, the other $12,500; one 14 times,
and the other more than twice the
amount allowed by law.
The Eagle says Greer is an honest
man and a good lawyer. A good law
yer knows the law—an honest man will
not knowingly violate tbe law. How
does the Eagle reconcile Greer's
honesty with the fact that he owes the
National bank $7,500 more than the
law says he ought to owe ?
The men whose disregard of law and
reckless speculations squandered the
funds of the bank are all for Greer.
These howling Greer supporters don't
own a dollar's worth of property in
their own names.
The stockholders who have paid up
their liabilities in full are opposed to
This is a strange coincidence. The
speculators who squandered the money
of the depositors are wanting one of
their number for Judge. The honest
men who had not borrowed more
money than the law allowed are against
John M. Greer is incompetent to fill
the great office of Judge. A dozen
lawyers at the Bar are far above him in
point of ability. He is not even a
fourth-rate lawyer. He is a politician
and a mind slow to comprehend legal
When Charles McCandless was
Greer's law partner he said he could
never trust him to prepare the papers
in an important case.
In nearly every case where he has
been concerned the Court has been ob
liged to assist him by allowing him to
amend his papers. Now, why do I say
so ? Because I know it is true.
The Eagle says I have occupied an
official position for the last ten years
that somebody else should have filled.
Let that be as it may. Any man who
has brains enough to learn short hand
writing is competent to form an intelli
gent opinion as to the relative ability of
lawyers who try cases which he re
ports. I haye reported the civil and
many of the criminal cases tried in
Court for the last ten years.
John M. Greer can tell a funny story,
can talk to a jury, or at a political
meeting, but when it comes to arguing
legal principles before a Court he is a
Col. John M. Thompson is a great
lawyer. He can wind John M. Greer
up and stand him on his head in the
trial of any case. There are also other
able lawyers at the Bar. In the hands
of such men what would an incompe
tent maa like Greer do on the Bench ?
McCandless and Robinson boast that
they have made Greer what he is. Ten
years ago Greer admitted be was in
debted to McCandless for all that be
knew. He don't know much law. Who
would he naturally go to for law—to
McCandless. Every man in this coun
ty may be on trial for his life, liberty
or property in the next ten years. Sup
pose the person against him should
employ McCandless; would he not fix
up the law to suit his side of the case ?
Then the great fixer, the man who is
on hands always to set up things, the
scheming politician of Butler county—
Tom Robinson, where would he be?
Would the man who puts bis hand to
his mouth and whispers in people's
ears forget to set up ,matters with the
Court ? Then we would have these
men in power. They might put up
signs as follows:
Attorney, learned in the law, and Con
fidential Advisor of Judge Oreer.
Attorney, unlearned in the law and the
General "fixer 11 for Oreer 1 s Court
This is no fanciful picture. Will
men who have not hesitated to do what
the law forbids or who have betrayed
trusts heretofore refrain from making
money out of their power over an in
competent Judge ?
Now let Tom Robinson and his
Eagle boil over with rage. It is not
Dearly so dangerous as cannon balls,
minnie balls, sabres, &c.
Anything that I have done or not
done will not be an answer. Abusiug
me will not make Greer competent.
Think of this. Lay aside all prejudice.
Don't run the risk of letting an incom
petent man get on the bench.

This is an age of intelligence and en
lightenment and citizens who enjoy the
electoral franchise are surely able aud
qualified to decide for themselves as to
the fitness and the competency of the
candidates for the important position
of Judge. The office of Judge is in
deed an important one, and should be
filled by one learned in the law, who
has acquired knowledge and wisdom
by close study for years at the practice
of the law. I think this important of
fice should not be made a matter of
politics alone; and it is to the interest
of eyery honest and intelligent citizen
who is desirous to have secured to him

the transmission ofgoodsand possessions

EDS. CITIZEN :—Can you explain
why the Eagle in its frantic efforts
to boost an incompetent man for Judge,
deems it necessary (as a recommenda
tion) to parade his record in the army
before the people, while the same pa
per pitches into Judge McJunkin and
takes him to task for appointing and
retaining as Court Stenographer a man
who enlisted when a mere boy, fought
Cas they are compelled to admit) gal
lantly through the war for the Union
and left an arm upon the battle-field ?
Not only this, but he was the first and
only applicant from the county for the
position, and so far as the writer knows
the only man in the county competent
to fill the position. Why then the in
consistency, the armv record of one
m?u to be used to help put him in
a position, even his friends admit him
incompetent f o fill, while the army re
cord of an other man must be overlook
ed, etc., in order to prejudice the com
munity against Judge McJunkin The
"jewel" consistency seems to be want
ing in the composition of the editors of
the "Buzzard." Perhaps the editors
are angry because the Stenographer
draws a larger pension thau their deli
cate looking little pensioner candidate,
who button-holes everybody to vote for
him for Judge. "Old Robinson Cru
soe," who wasn't on an island during
the war, but might as well have been
as to have been moving from Penn tp.,

changing his residence about the time
of the draft (as was then currently re
ported) is now very loud in behalf of
the soldier; provided, their widows do
not interfere with he or bis family get
ting post offices, etc., or their brothers
interfere with his being attorney for
the Commissioners, a positiou every
body knows he is incompetent to fill.

MESSRS. EDITORS: —Hoping that
some ' Spectator,', as is usually the
custom, would have given you a de
tailed account of the closing exercises
of the White Oak Point School. I have
kept silent, but, seeing their extreme
modesty has prevented their giving
publicity to their generosity, and hav
ing been the recipient of a great many
tokens of their regard in the past, 1
take pleasure in exhibiting their deeds
that others may see and practice their
virtues. The busy season havingover
takou us before the expiration of the
term, we thought best to close quietly
and devote the time to work rather

plans were badly executed, for about

of the occasion, the school was again

tion of the honors conferred by doing
the best they could under the circum

front bearing a mysterious package,
which, iu a neatly worded speech, he
presented to the writer, as a token of
the love and good wishes of the school.
