The Country's Verdict.
The official announcement of the vote
cast last November in many States has
been delayed an unusual time, and in two
States it is still lacking. There were 11,-
263,377 ballou cast and counted, as com
pared with the 12,034.858 cast and count
ed in the Presidential election of 1892
This is the largest vote ever cast in an ofl
year. The falling off from the vote of two
years ago being only 831,481. This is
sufficient to show how profoundly interest
ed the people were in the eloetion, and to
disprove any claim that the result was due
Another significant feature of the returns
is the great increase of the Republican
vote over 1892. In that year the total Re
publican vote was 5,175.202, while this
year the Republican vote is 5.588,326—an
increase o. 413,124. This large increase in
a party's vote in an ofl year over the vote
the same party cast ir the previous Presi
dential eleotion is probably unique in
American political history. In the Demo
cratic sweeps of 1874 and 1890 no snch in
crease was apparent. The Democratic
victories ere due in both cases to a fall
ing off in the Republican vote. But this
year the Republican victory is due to a
large increase in the Republican vcte—
the parly having cast not only the largest
vote it ever polled, but also having cast
the largest vote ever polled by any party
n this oountry at any election eveT held.
A noticeable feature of the returns is the
number of States that gave large Republi
can pluralities. One State —Pennsylvania
—gave a Republican plurality exceeding
200,000. Four States—New York, Ohio,
Illinois and Michigan—gave Republican
pluralities exceeding 100.000. In four
States— Massachusetts, Wisconsin, Minne
sota and lowa—the Republican plurality
was over 50,000. and New Jersey and Indi
ana fell only a very tew thousand below
this plurality, and in such small States as
New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Con
necticut. South Dakota and Colorado,
the Republican plurality ranged be
tween 11,000 and 17,000
The rota is on the highest State officer
voted for, or where there was no State tick
et on Congressmen. This is hardly fair
to the Republicans, as in several States
the opposition fight was concentrated on
the Republican candidate for Governor,and
resulted in a loss in Minnesota, Nebraska
and California of at least 50,000 votes to
the Republicans. A comparison of the
votes on Congressmen would show
much more advantageously for the Repnb
THB official vote of every oounty in the
State of Tennessee, each certified to by
the oounty officers, shows that Evans is
elected Governor by a plurality of 841.
The vote stands: Evans (Rep.), 105.167;
Torney (Dem.). 104.326. Turnev was
elected in 1892 by 26.356 plurality. The
delay in ascertaining this result has been
due to the refusal of the Canvassing Board
to give out the figures.
K BILL will be introduced in the Legis
lature this winter by Representative Fran*
L Riter, of Philadelphia, retiring Judges
with full pay after twenty years service on
the bench. Just why Judges wbo receive
from $4,000 to $6,000 per year for twenty
years should pensioned we can not un
derstand If they live as they should live
they will have accumulated enonnfj money
to keep them the balance of their lives,
and will need no pensions. The bill will
be killed or the Members who vote for it
will kill themselves politically.—lndiana

The Blair-White Contest.
Judges Barker. Doty and Reyburn con
vened their Court in Indiana Pa., last Fri
day, with Judge Doty, presiding.
There was only a fair sited crowd at the
opening session, but in the afternoon the
court room was packed, many farmers
who had come in with the expectation of
attending a farmers' institute, which was
postponed, going to the court-house.
Attorneys Banks, Cunningham and Scott
appeared for Judge White and D. B. Tay
lor, Esq., who presented the petition to
the attorney-general, eppeared for the pe
titioners. The first excitement ot the day
came when Judge White was seen enter
ing the court room from the rear door
Jadge Blair had preceded him several
moments. Judge White had a roll of
paper in his hand, which proved to be his
objections to Judge Reybnrn as a member
of the tribunal. He read them himself,
and afterwards made a short talk in support
His objections consisted of the charges of
relationship between Judge Reyburn and
D. B. Taylor, but he denied ever having
made public his objections before. He
said he entertained the highest respect lor
Judge Reyburn as a man, and had confi
denceinhis integrity, bnt he believed
it would be better if he was not in the
After some consultations Judge Di.ty
announced that it was Judge lleyburn's
desire to withdraw, but that in view of the
governor's commission, and the evident
meaning of the law it was thought best
mat Judge Reyburn remain in the board.
Judge White's motion was therefore over
Then came the real struggle of the day,
which resul ted in a victory for Judge
Wnite. The original petition cited a cer
tain number of illegal votes, but failed to
specify where they were cast, and who
cast them. This, in the opinion of Attor
ney Banks, rendered the petition vagne
and indefinite, claiming that Judge White
would have no opportunity of answering
unless he knew from what sources the
charges came. He asked that the petition
be squashed. Attorney Taylor objected
vigorously, and finally made a direct as
sertion that a number of ballot boxes had
been opened since the election and papers
It was a confirmation of the rumor
which had been in circulation for some
time, but regarding which no official infor
mation could be secured. Mr. Taylor ask
ed the court to protect them in the matter
of furnishing the names of those who vot
ed illegally, finally admitting that the
reasons for so doing were that it would
interfere with the petitioners securing
their witnesses. He made the startling
assertion that already parties had been
approached and offered bribes to leave the
county until after the contest.
Their honors finally decided that the pe -
tition was vague aud that it was necessary
lor the petitioners to give the names of the
illegal votes cast and in what precinct.
They have until the first day of January
to prepare their answer. In addition to
this Sheriff D. C. Mack was appointed a
commissioner to collect every ballot box
in the county and keep them under his
care until the court should call for them
The time set for hearing the evidence is
January 15. By that time it is believed
both sides will be ready to fight to the
finish. The Judges went home that even
The Indiana Democrat says that James
A. Grossman. Commissioners' clerk for
Indiana county, sent out notices to all the
judges of eleotion in-tructing them to open
the ballot boxes of their respective pre
cincts, take oat the voters check lists, and
mail them to him. This he did without
apparently consulting the Commissioners
or anybody else. It was of course in flat
violation of the law, which declares that
the ballot boxes shall be opened only in
oase of a contested election, and then only
in the presence ot the judge of the court.
A number of the judges unthinkingly com
plied with the request, viewing it as an
official order, When the thing was dis
covered Mr. Crosstnan was directed to
hand over the check lists to the Prothono
tary. If the Democrat's story is correal it
was certanly a peculiar caper for the young
man to cut, but likely a piece of folly
dictated solely by his seal in the cause of
Judge White and his ignorance of the law.

West Sunbury Academy and the Banquet.
Just when the Academy at West Son
bury had its origin nobody seems to know.
"Doir Rebstock taught a term of private
school there in the Spring of 185.1, and
Rev. Sam'l Williams a term in Fall ot the
same year; and towards the close of that
year, or perhaps in the beginning of the
next, a stranger who called himself Wil
liam Thomas, located in the town.
It did not take the people of the village
long to find oat that this new man was an
extraordinary scholar, besides bting a man
of high character, and at their request be
opened a private school and tanght three
terms. His object in doing so seems to
have been to oblige his neighbors and oc
cupy his own mind; for he is said to have
been a minister of the gospel from the
Sonth whose full name was William
Thomas Hamilton, and who songht in a
qniet northern village, a retreat irom do
mestic trouble. He is said to have stopped
at Harrisville for a time after leaving San
bury, and to have then returned to the
Iu 1855, Rev. William T. Dickson and
his wife, while on their way from Maine to
Tennessee, stepped at W. Sunbury to visit
gome friends and were induced to remain
there and open a high school. The Dun
lap building was secured, aud the name
W.Sunbury Academy given it. The school
was opened, and it prospered remarkably
until the outbreak of tb« civil war, when
many of the students enlisted in the"Dick
son guards" which went to the front under
command of Oapt Louden; aud Rev. Dick
sun hiuistlf enlisted as cbapiaiu of a regi
Alter the war Rev. Dickson returned
and again took charge of the Academy,
but it seems to have lagged. lie then
went to Pine Grove whore he remained
eleven years, and then came back to
Sunbury, where he died in 1877. Mrs.
Dickson, with assistance, continued the
Academy for a while, acd then the Priuci
palship was given to Rev. Geo. W. Bean.
Since that time, A. M. Cunningham,
Henry Shanor, R. H. Gilfillan, W. W.
Logan, R. W. McGranahan, Thomas Mof

now C. B. Robertson have been Princi
The new Academy, a handsome and
commodious, building, well adapted to its
purpose, was erected in 1887. The whole
oommunity subscribed to it. and they can
well be proud of the result of their etforts.
During the principalship of Prof. Logan,
in 1884, a cour3e of study was determined
upon, and since that time, the Academy
has been granting diplomas to the students
who completed the course. ' And this

saed, and find the work a material im
provement on the old A great
merit of the C; clopaedi®P""tn the begin
ning has been that its articles were pre

more in a given space regarding his topic

class —more useful than some more vi>-
luminous cyclopaedias. The new editiou
is a decided advance in cyclopaedia
uiakiug. A set of this work ougnt to be
found in every schoolnou.se, aud me pupils
ougnt to be taught how to nse it.

FROM RICHARD G. BOONE. PH. D.,
Principal Michigan State Normal School.
Tpsilanti. Mich., Dec , 18. 1894.
I have known and us-d the Johnson's
Universal Cyclopaedia since il wa> tirsi
published. Much of the time it has had a
place along with a halt d«zeu sets of other
similar works. It bas had and still has
the preference for the use of any bu<y per
son. Ifalam'ly, a school, or a student
can have hut one such work, it should, by
all meaus, be Johnson's.
In many respects the revision now go
ing through the press is superior t.> the
tirst issue: in more abuudaut cross refer
ences, in paragraph headings, in belter
maps, in Dew subjects, and up-to-date
treatments, its superiority is apparent.

Batler, Pa., Dec 17, 1894.
For several years I have used the form
er edition of Johnson's Cyclopaedia, and
have touud it very helptul.
For accuracy, comprehensiveness and
ready reference I believe it is unsurpassed.
Anyone needing a Cyclopaedia ol practi
cal value will make no mistake in pur
chasing the new edition with its larger
type and articles re-written or revised to
