As All Expected.
As »11 expected the Democrats
have re nominated Cleveland for Pres
ideal U was easy to again nominate
him but they will find it very hard to
elect him. He will probably be the
worst beaten man who has ran for
President for some time. All the
Republicans need is a good, clean
man, as their candidate. This they
will now get in a short time, and
with the issue of protection to our
labor and industries we must Burelv
Not Much Practiced, So Far.
Experience, so far, with the new
■yetem adopted for making nomina
tions in this Congressional district
has proven the new system is either
not understood or not desired to be
understood. When it was agreed
last winter that Republicans had got
enongh of the old conferree system,
and that a new mode should be adopt
ed, it was thought we bad obtained a
remedy, by the dividing of this pres
ent dietrict into sixty snb parts, each
coantv having fifteen of the same and
each independent of the other. This,
if carried out as intended, might work
well and prove a great reform. But
the old County idea it seems cannot
be got ont of the beads of some, and
in practice ao far the county idea has
been kept up. If in district conven-!
tions a roll of the sub delegates is
not called, and the sub delegate from
each and every district given a fair
and free opportunity to express his
choice, the new system will prove of
no] value. And if so, there will be
no permanent reform obtained only
by and through the popular wAe of
the people directly at the primary
polls. This is what we started out
to obtain last winter and which we
are BOW more than ever satisfied will
be the only remedy. It will be the
only one to end trading and bargain
ing by and between the counties of a
district and will prove in all respects
the better way of nominating.
Tfce will of the people is the law of
the laud in almost all other nomina
tions, and why not in Congresssional
AT the Convention of delegates
from the sub districts of the four
counties of this Congressional dis
trict, that assembled in New C&etle
last Tuesday to elect delegates to
represent the same at Chicago
in th* coming National Convention
Mr. Willi&in Kile of M c, reer County
and Mr. W. C. Thompson of this
county were cbo=en the principal del
egate!), end Mr. David Tidball, of
Lawrence county, and Mr. Turner
Strawbridge, of Beaver county, as
alternates. The "sub district" plan
or idea seemed to have been forgotten
in the convention and instead there
of the old "county" or "county dele
gation" idea prevailed. The talk was
of counties, not the sab districts of
the counties, and in this way were
the delegates chosen. This was di
rectly coutrary to the principle of the
new system, and if followed in mak
log the Congressional nomination
next Tuesday, as we predict it will
be, this so-called new system might
M well be considered a failure and
abandoned at once. Had the election
of the delegates been submitted to a
vote of the whole sixty sub delegates
of the district, as was intended by
the new plan, the result might have
been very different from what it was.
The idea of tho new system was to
get away from the old Conferree and
Connty one, but so far it looks as if
it will prove merely an enlargement
of the old system, and be 15, 15, 15,
15, in place of the old 3, 3, 3, 3, until

Death of Hon John J. Pearson.;
lion John J. Pearson, formerly of ;
Mercer County, died at his residence
in Harrieburg ou May 30, 1838, in j
ih» BStb year of his age
There are but few of the members of .
the Butler Bar who live to remember
Judge Pearson. He came here to
practice bis profession fifty or more |
years ago, and by general consent
was regarded as the most acute and
able lawyer in the matter of our early
lind laws and trials of any lawyer
who then visited our Courts While in
the Senate of Pennsylvania he was
appointed Judge for Dauphin County
and continued as such for thirty
three years, living at Harrisburg.
He was a model Judge, known all of
the State as such.
The following account of him we
take from the Harrisburg Independent
of May 31:
EX JUDGE I'EAKSON.
EVENTS ANI) INCIDENTS OF HIS LIFE
John J. Pearsoa, died at 1 p. m„
today, at the family residence cn
South Front street, after a long and
painful illness, in the 88th year of his
age. Bevan Pearson, the father of
the deceased, emigrated from Dela
ware to Mercer county. Pa., with bia
family in the year 1805, and settled
on a tract of wild land which he had
previously purchased, cleared a com
paratively large farm, atd constructed
good buildings. At that time the
subject of this sketch was in the fifth
year of his age. He received a reas
onably good education in the best
schools of that county, in a grammar
boarding school for the Latin and
Greek languages, and by private tui
tion became very conversant in the
Latin language and various branches
of science, but never had the advan
tage of a regular collegiate education.
He wrote for a considerable time in
bis father's office, and in the month of
January, 1820, entered on the study
of the law. under the instructien of
the Hon. John Banks, then a lawyer
of high standing and extensive prac
tice in Mercer county.
Mr. Pearson, after studying law
diligently for two and a half years,
was admitted to the bar at the Au
gust term of court inMercer coantv in
the year 1822. A few months after
wards be removed to Franklin, A en
ango countv. and entered on the prac
tice of his profession in the counties
of Crawford, Mercer, Venango, and
Warren, in all of which he practised
regularly, and occasionally in those of
Erie, Beaver, and Butler, it being the
practice of the lawyers of that day to
travel around large circnits. A con
siderable portion of the legal business
of Western Pennsylvania then was
the trial of land titles, with which
Mr, Pearson became very familiar.
In the Epring of 1830 he removed
with his family to .Mercer, and con
tinued to reside there and practised
his profession in the same counties
enumerated until the year 1849, when
on the 7th day April of that year, be
was, by and with the advice and con
sent of the Senate, appointed by Wil
liam F, Johnston, Governor of the
State, to the office of President Judge
of the Tweiftb Judicial district, com
posed of the counties of Dauphin and
Lebanon, and moved with his family
to Harrisburg in the summer of that
same year, where he has resided ever
Thy judicial business of Dauphin
county was found at that time to be
greatly in arrears, being back as much
as five or six years. This was partly
owing to the large population, but
mainly to the g-"it amount of State
business; all the |»'cuni irv claims by
or against the Comm nwealth had
ihen and now to be tried in the coun
ty of Dauphin. With great labor and
perseverance the business was la a
few years so brought up that all case?
desired to l>e heard could be tried i:i a
short and reasonable time The
causes in Lebanon county were gen
erally tried at the second term.
A change having beeu wade in the
Constitution of Pennßyluania, by
which the Judges were made elective,
the President Judges for a period of
ten years, he was, in the autumn of
1851, elected and commissioned Pres
ident Jndge of the same district, and
again elected in the years 1861 and
1871, each time by a unanimous vote
of the people and without opposition
The judicial business of this dis
trict was of more than ordinary mag
nitude and importance, involving a
sit did very many claims of the Com
monwealth of immense amount aod
great constitutional difficulty, involv
ing momentous questions both under
the Constitution of the United States
and of this State, besides a more than
ordinary amount of new and import
ant criminal cases, and those arising
on the equity side of the court.
His terra of office expiiel ou the
first Monday of January, 1882, hay
ing declined a re-election, being then
in bis 82d year.
During his residence in Mercer he
was twice elected to office—first to
the Congress of the United States for
the years 1835 and SB3O, and after
wards, in the autumn of 1837, to the
Senate of Pennsylvania, for the same
counties for four yeard, for three of
which he noted as Chairman of the
Judiciary Committee, then the nioet
important and laborious one of the
body; the duties were performed to
the general satisfaction,
In the term of his judicial career
he received from three different colle
ges of the State the honorable degree

In Judge Pearßon's long and lab
orious life he was twice married—
first, on the 13th of October. 1827, to
Ellen, only daughter of Gen. Samuel
Hays, a very prominent politician of
Venango county. She died in Feb
ruary, 1840 Afterwards, on July

The Transfer of Saloon Licenses
The excessive value of the fran
chise offomeof the liquor salooue
which survive iu certain sections, be
intr one out of a dozen perhaps i'i 3
location much affected by drii.k
has raised at once the question of their (
negotiability. Some modest or u::
ambitious men who find that by the >
favor of the Liceuse Court they have :
obtained a privilege which others j
stand ready to purchase from them (>t
a figure representing several years'
profits under the old regime are will
ing to sell out to a more enterprising
boniface if the law permits it.
Whether or not transfers of liquor li-!
cense are permissible under the new
law is a question which it is under
stood the Board of Judges are about
to take under consideration
The License Act of 155S provides
that "if the party licent-ed shall die, !
remove or cease to keep such house ,
his, her or their liceuse may be trans
ferred by the authority granting the
same, or a license be granted the suc
cessor of such party for the remainder
of the yeur by the proper authority
on compliance with the requisition of
the laws." The new law is siieut on
the subject of transfers, but the infer
ence running all through it is that
the benefits of each license are intend
ed exclusively for the person and
place named in the grant No harm
could come from a transfer of a license
or of a change iu the place of sale if it
is made with the permission of the
court, subject to the same scrutiny
and discretion exercised in making
the original grant. If the Quarter
Sessions is willing to supplement its
license work by listening to applica
tions for transfers from time to time,
it would no doubt be a convenience
to the liquor venders, and no particu
lar detriment to the public.
If liquor licenses could be sold
without the purchaser incurring the
risk of being denied by the court the
privilege of using the license he had
purchased it would be seen that the
present tax is a very small affair com
pared with the sum which the exclu
sive privilege of selling liquor in cer
tain squares will bring under free
competition. It is a good thing to
have the saloons reduced, but the en
richment of a few licensed liquor fell
ers was not in contemplation in the
enactment of the law. If a saloon
license can command a high premium
in the market over and above its
j present cost it can afford to and
should be made to pay a much higher
I tax.—Phii'a Press, June 4.
THE Republicans do not need 100,-
000 of a majority in Pennsylvania
this fall; but on the issue of protec
tion to American labor and indus
tries they will certainly have about
that majority over the Democrats and
their free trade doctrines.

Who Pays the Tax?
Xu fall.icv exists about which more
nonsense is talked tbau the statement
that in a tariff the cost of the duty is
added to the price paid by the con
sumer. This statement iu its turn
grows out of the "high priori" asser
tion of English economists that ali
taxation was finally paid by the con
This is not tcue. If the supply is
erreater than the demand the produc
er or ovrner pays th? tax; if the de
mand is greater than the supply the
c naumer pavs the tax. At all the
varving difference between these
points the tax is proportionately dis
tributed between the two, the con
sumer and the producer. . In every
trade the man at the worst eud of the
bargain pays costs of carrying on the
When the tax was taken off both
tea and coffee B-azil was able for
awhile to go on collecting the tax, be
cause in coffee the demand was
greater tuau the supply; but China
could not, because iu tea the reverse
was the case. Therefore, while coffee
did not fall in price, tea did as sooa
as commerce was adjusted to the
change. Later coffee fell when the
supply increased. In England, where
iand is in greater demand than the

effect pavs the rax—save and only in
some cities, and these only at the
centres where k demand is greater than
This law is universal and is self- I
operating. When a protective tariff 1
'is first imposed, the price is advanc- j
!ed because the supply has not been
increased by home production and at
the start the consumer pays the tax.
It is the best investment he can make
of hia money, f. ras fast as the sup
| ply at home increases, the producers,
under this inexorable law, has to pay

Lancaster's Heavy Loss.
LANCASTER, May 29.—The severest
hailstorm in the knowledge of the
citizuns of the Northern part of the
county passed over that section last
evening doing almost an incredible
amount of damage to property. The
storm came from the Northwest, and
apparently centered at Lititz and
Warwick Township, covering a belt
four miles wide. The greatest dam
as*? was done in the Borough of Lititz
| which, after the storm, presented the
I appearance of having been cannon

off and trees stripped clean of leaves,
while the gardens were beaten flat.
Linden Hall Seminary and the ad

Chapel suffered most severely. Near

the tile 3 of the roof of the chapel were

Methodist and Lutheran Churches,
Stautier's tobacco factory were badly
damaged and many roofs of private
houses had holes knocked in them
The hailstones were of unusual size.
! Oae'stone weighed at Lititz was a
fraction less than half a pound iu
weight, while another picked up at
New Haven, two miles distant, was
nine inches in length. In East Earl
township the hailstones ranged in
size from hulled walnuts to bens' eggs,
and some were picked that would
hardly go ia a tea cup. Numbers of
thern measured eight and a half and
ten inches iu circumference
The fruit trees in the section visited
were completely stripped una the
wheat fields were beateu flat. Bare

The Blind and the Halt.
Rev. Tilmage, ia one cf his recent
remarkable sermons thu* speaks of
the achievements of men who in their
lives we-e either bind or iu
some way disabled or deformed:
"Do you know that the three jrreat
poets ot t'ne world weretotaily blind ?
llomer, (J?sian, .John Milton. DJ
you know that Mr Prescott, who
wrote that enchanting book, 'The
Conquest of Mexico," never saw Mex
ico, could uot even see the paper ou
which he was writing? A frame
work across the sheet, i>et weeu which,
up and down, went the pen immortal
I)o vou know that Gambassio, the
sculptor, could not see the marble be
fore him, or the chisel with which he
cut it into shapes bewitching? Do
you know that Alexander Pope,
whose poem 3 will last as long as the
English language, was so much of an
j invalid that ho had to be sewed up
j every morniug iu rough canvas in
I order to stand on his feet at ail ?
Do you know that Stuart, the cele
brated painter, did much of his won
derful work under the shadow of the
dungeon, where he had been unjustly
imprisoned for debt? Do you know
that Demosthenes by almost super
human exertion first had to conquer
the lisp of his own speech before he
conquered assemblages with his elo
quence ? Do you kuow that Bacon
struggled all through innumerable
sicknesses, and that Lord Byron
and Sir Walter Scott went limping
on clubfoot through all the life, and
that many of the great poets and
painters and orators and historians
and heroes of the world had some
thing to keep them back, and pull
them down, and impede their way,
and cripple their physical or their in
tellectual movement, and yet that
they pushed on and pushed up until
they reached the spoils of worldly
success, and amid the huzza of na
tions and centuries, "the lame took
the prey ?"
You kuow that a vast multitude of
these men started under the disadvan
tage of obscure parentage. Columbus,
the son of the weaver; Ferguson, the
son of the shepherd. America the
prey of the one; worlds on worlds the
prey of the other. Bui what is true
in secular directions is more true in
spiritual and religious directions, and
I proceed to prove it."
The Tariff Rock Ahead.
Pittsburg Dispatch of Thursday.]
No political fact for twenty years
hack has had the broad interest of
yesterday's nomination at St. Louis.
The work of the Democratic con
vention is not yet finished, but Presi
dent Cleveland's nomination for prac
tical purposes means everything the
party cau expresss. Only upon the
bare wording of the tariff resolutions
does any issue arise The struggle
»oiug on is simply whether, while
making a fight against a protective
tariff, the convention shall boldly de
clare itself in favor of duties for reve
nue only as Watterson and his frauk
er associates want, or attempt a half
' way declaration to be couveuieutly
i construed one way or another during
! the campaign as circumstances, local
j ity and the future manifestations
! of public sentiment may suggest
But whatever the words of the con
vention on the tariff, President Cleve
! laud's position is known. His mes
! sage and the introduction and support
| of the Mills bill in Congress make the
1 fact quite clear that such a reduction
of duties is contemplated a3 has al
' ready aroused the earnest opposition
I both of capital and labor engaged in
many of the most extensive and im
portant of American industries.
Whether the convention proposes to
go farther on the Watterson line, or
merely affirm the suggestions of the
message and of the Mills bill as an
experimental elfort iu tariff reduction,
i 3 not essential at present. A suffi
cient issue b: s already be"! framed
for the campaign.
