Mercer County Republicans.
At Mercer, Tuesday, the Republican
County Committee was outhnsiastio for
Major McDowell, ami so long as they be
lievo that he is being mado tho victim of a
conspiracy their loyalty to him is admira
ble anil worthy of emulation hut when
they nay that they will stand by biin till
the polls clone ia November, even though
his nomination was brought about by
bribery, if it oannot bo proved that the
money used was bis money, they not only
forget their duty to their party but also
their duty an good citizens. Sustaining
acknowledged or confessed bribery means
gelling office or power to the highest bid
der; it is the end of popular government;
and though there have been rumors of buy
ing and selling in connection wit.hprevious
nominations for Congress, this is the first
case in which the niitnos and amounts have
been positively stated, and the people giv
en an opportunity to show their condem
nation of such work. The people of Mer
cer county cannot afferd to set such a pre
cedent, tbey are an intelligent people,their
vote in public questions iu tho past shows
that they arc an honest people, and we do i
not believe that they will adhere to the I
plan of action mapped out by thoir County
Committee at Mercer, Tuesday. If two of
tho other counties had gono t„>gotber at
tho New Castle couveutiou.and somebody,
no matter who, bad purchased three of the
Mercer county delegates, thereby making
an apparent nomination, and the matter
had come to light as this matter has, they
would have been the first to repudiate a
nomination brought about by such means.
IT is not a question AN to whether Maj.
McDowell, his best friend or worst enemy
did the bribing ol the Beaver delegate?.
The Maj. says he did not do it we give him
the benefit of his denial, but the question
ia. Wa3 the nomination honestly and fairly
. made? All admit that on the 195 th ballot
he conld not have been nominated with
out these bribod votes, and as they were
unlawful they cannot be oountod and his
nomination is void.

BCRSKD TO A CRISR.
On Saturday afternoon between 1 and 2
o'clock, while the wife of Wm. Jones liv
ing one mile from town w.i> starting the
fire with lamp oil, the oil cim exploded,
throwing the oil all over her l>.«ly and she
was soon in a blazo. Being alone in the
house she run for help, but 'Jdore auy ag
sistance could be rendered all ihe i lothing
was burned from her body. Medical aid
was soon rendered but of no avail and she
was soou called from hor suilering to that
heavenly home to meet her Ood. It was
one of the moat pitiful aud heart rendering
Bcen#s that we have ever witnessed. The
bereaved husband has the sympathy of the
entire neighborhood in his afUiction. the
young couple having been married but
three months before.
Tho Mercer Co. Convention.
Mercer is a quiet, little town, located on
the top of a hill, near tho centro of Merc r
county. It ia distinctively a Court House
town, and it* location precludes it from bi
,ing anything else. Tho Court He .
surrounded by « gn-re in the centre of the
town, alt the buniness houses of the town
aro around that square, and there are
neveral fcandsomo residences on tfcf street
running north and south and skirling the
Court House square on the ea.-tern side
Tho only animation or lifo to be seen in tl.c
town last Tuesday was in and abont t 1 o
Court House, and the reason for this w ~
the meeting of the Rupnblieau County
Committee, to take action on tho charges
of bribery that have been made and con
fessed, in connection with the, nomination
of Major Alex. McDowell, of Sharon, for
'•Our Alex," as they call him up there,
was in the crowd shaking hands and talk
ing with everybody; so was tho Honorable
Samuel Miller, and so were tho other
politicians of tho town
It was sometime after 1 o clock when the
crowd started up tho stairways to the little
court-room, which was soon comfortably
filled, and fully half past one when Chair
man Perry called the meeting to order with
a tremendous blow with his hammer on the
jndge's bench, and stated its object.
Mr. Perry referred to the charges of
bribery so quickly following the adjourn
ment of tho New Castle convention; ad
vised cool and deliberate action, the sur
render of no rights, the doing of nothina
that they would regret, and called upon
Major McDowell to make his statement.
The Major stepped into the box-like
"bench"' amid tremendous applause, and
after it subsided made a speech somewhat
similar to tho one he made to our Co. Com
mittee, though moro lengthy. Townsend
promised to nominate him, and he finally
was nominated on the 195 th ballot, had
never had any conversation with the three
Beaver Co. delegates who voted for him.
did not and will not pay them a dollar nor
authorise anybody to pay for him, an! as
far as he knows not a dollar was paid. He
courts a rigid and searching investigation,
referred to the action of the Beaver and
Butler County Committees; in the interest
of harmony he advised the Co. Committee
to appoint a committee to meet with those
of the other counties and search aud ex
amine, and if their report found himsell
or his delegates connected with the bribery
ho will step down and ont; ho advised do
ing nothing rash, but that tho Co. Com
mittee bo firm and show tho Republicans
of tho district that they would have justice
aud fair treatment; he does not want to
force himself on the party and in its in
terest will step aside if found guilty ol
fraud or illegal practices. He believes the
Republicans of tho 25th district arc willing
•to concede justice as between county anu
couuty and man and man, they must, be
friends and not enemies, thero is no room
for two candidates but plenty of room for
one; Mercer Co. was well represented at
New Castle and there are no charges
against cither its candidate or delegates.
Tho Major was heartily applauded
several times during his speech, aud seem
ed to have the absolute confidence of all or
nearly all his audience.
A motion for a committee of five on reso
lutions then carried, it was appointed, and
the Chair announced a recess of twenty
minutes, and somebody said ho had receiv
ed a telegram from Quay to quit aud send
him au original package.
The feeling against Quay in the county
seems to lie intense. Threats of bolting
Delauiater, though they gave him their
delegates last Spring, wero heard on al!
6ides. They seem to think that McDowell
is being made the victim of a conspiracy
that originated with Quay.
The committee on resolutions reported
and the resolutions were read. They speak
| of the charges of bribery, of McDowell'*
disclaimer, of their explicit faith and con
fidence in him, but at his request will
name a committee of threo to meet witji
tho committees of the other counties, their
committee to act with others and make
report to their Co. Committee at a future
meeting; and if Mi.jor McDowell had
nothing to do with tho bribery they will
claim tho district nomination for him.
The Chairman asked for remarks from
Mercer, Beaver, Butlor or Lawrence Co.
Sam Miller arose and said that he noticed
that the Rev. Dr. Mehard, of
was present, aud calls were made for the
Dr., who said be was not there to make a
speech. Ho thought the resolutions should
be passed, though it was a settled principle
that fraud smirched a nomination, and
though the nomination was regular, it was
the duty of a candidate to declino such u
nomination and again go before the people;
individual cases must be considered with
their surroundings and antecedents; Mercer
Co. ebouUl adhcro to tho Major on his
statement of the case, ho know tho Major
by reputation; it was well-known that two
years ago McDowell could have had a dole
gate from Lawrence Co. for slso,but didn't
Then Sam Miller was called for; Sam
hesitated; somebody said Sam was bashful
aud that brought down the house. Sam
spoke highly of McDowell's character, is
sure that an investigation will clear him,
end then they should all stand bv him, as
such action was duo to Mercer Co., its 15
delegates, McDowell and manhood.
Henry Hall was the next speaker. Ho
said we aro all for McDowell because we
know him; we won't take the word of three
self confesned boodlers against his reputa
tation, and we waut investigation. Wo
don't want McDowell to be tho victim of
of somebody else's sin.
Mr. J. C. Brown, of Greenville, formerly
editor of the Arg i«, believes McDowell
had nothing to do with the bribery; he
made uo improper proposals for his four
delegate*, but if a committee investigated
and reported, then wbatf This is not a
question of McDowell's guilt or innocence, j
the important question is "Was there
bribery?" "Wero these threo votes pur
chased*" If there was bribery, if these
three votes wero purchased, then the nom
ination is invalid and there was uo nomi
nation made. The question of McDowell's
guilt or innocence was a false position.
Mr. Brown was the only Mercer C<>.
speaker who had the courage t«> touch the
rital point of the matter, and his remarks
were received in silence, except the mut
tyred threats of revenue and disapproba
ilr. Evacs, of Sharon, said the laboring
tnen of Sharon were for McDowell.
Sam Miller answered Drown's speech,
lie i-aid that fraud does not vitiate every
thing it touches; that if onr legislature
would attempt to pass a bill that bore
bird on the corporations and the corpora
tions wonld use money to prevent if, and
the other side would use money to pass it.
and did paws it, it would yet be a good
la'.v. There were Supremo Conrt de
cisions on the point, and the law would
stand. Ho didn't know of any fraud, but
assuming it as true, the three men were
brought to beat somebody else; McDowell
was innocent: his nomination had been
made unanimous and the other 57 dele
gates had not been bribed; since this affair
came out he had revised his opinion of
. Judas Iscariot; Judas gave back the money
and went out and hanged himself, while
these three men kept the money and
squealed. There is no sickly sentimental
ism in his character and if the committee
reports Major McDowell innocent he will
stick to him till he himself pulls down his
I Then the other counties were again
called upon for remarks, but there were no
responses. Speakers from other counties j
were not present. because they had not .
been invited. Sam ililler Reetned especial
ly ansious to get a whack at a Butler Co.
111:111. but was not given a chance. Ban. j
seem* to bo McDowell'* attorney in this'
matter, and he carefully avoids the Tital,
question at issue. as acted upon by Bearer
and Butler Counties, and »• stated by Mr.
Hrowu. If the boot was on the otbor foot,
if threo of McDowell's men bad played
Judas and sold tliom-.dve» to either of the
other three candidates for Congre*. thus |
making a nomination and defrauding Mc-
Dowell. Sam would probably be the
loadest-mouthod man in tho district in his
denunciation of tlio frand. Wo imagine
that he wonld seek a position on the top of
tho water tf.nk and try to make a:l Morcer
Co. hear him at the w.nio timo.
The quostion was then called for and
put and the resolutions passed unanimous
ly. Miller wanted tlin roll called, but
Chairman Perry decided that to be un
necessary. Then Snm called for every
bodv ia the room who were for McDowell
to rise to their feet, and almost everybody
arose. Then Sam wanted anybody who
opposed him to rise, and one young man
arose and said that he was for McDowell if
he was innocent, but not otherwise, and
Chairman Perry answered "Oh, yes, if our
Alex, ain't innocent, wo won't be for our
A motion to make Chairman I'errj tho
chairman of tho investigating committee
carried, and Perry appointed S. H. Miller
aud llenry Uobinson as his associates.
Then all arose and gavo McDowell three
cheers and the meeting adjourned.
The resolutions are as follow.-:
The resolutions adopted follow:
Whereas, It is alleged that the nomina
tion of Maj. Alex. McDowell as the Re
publican candidate for Congress for this,
the Twenty-fiflh district, was brought
about bykthe bribery of one or more of the
delegates representing Beaver county in
the lato Congressional convention, and
Whereas, Maj. McDowell disclaims all
knowledge of tho alleged bribery ha\ing
been committed, aud states to this com
mittee that he neither paid nor promised
to pay directly or indirectly, bv himself
or by any other person, any consideration
whatever to secure tho vote or votes of any
delegate in said convention, and
Whereas, This committee has implicit
faith and conlidence in the veracity,
honesty and integrity of Maj. McDowell,
and, therefore, believe that neither ho nor
any of the Mercer county delegates 01
friends had any pirt in corruptly soliciting
or obtaining the votes of an}" delegates of
said conyention; therefore,
Resolved, first f That we hereby announce
and declare that we recognize Maj. Mc-
Dowell as the Republican nominee for
Congress iu this, the Twenty-fifth district;
that as such we earnestly and heartily ill
dorse his candidacy. :inil pledge him the
active and unanimous support of every
member of this committee and of the Re
publican voters of this county.
Resolved, second. That Maj. McDowell
having requested the same, the Chairman
of this committee be authorized and direct
ed to appoint a committee of throe Repub
licans to act in conjunction with coin
mitees appointed or to be appointed by
the Republican County Committees ot tho
other counties comprising the district to
investigate the charges of illegal bribery
in «nid Congressional convention, with
direction to report their action at a future
meeting to lie held by this committee.
Resolved, third, That when tho com
mittee to be appointed this day shall,
after investigation, report to this com
mittee that Maj. McDowell had no
complicity or particiption in the alleged
bribery, and that, he is innocent of all con
nection therewith, then it is the duty of
this committee and the right ol the Repub
licans of Mercer county, to claim, demand
and expect for Maj. McDowell tho .support
of every Republican in the district.
