week put on Mrs. Caudle's nightcap, and
very sagely - observed as to the edito - i of the
Aorr i i.Ton.: "In company with his compa
triots; we suppose he defends the ' grab.' "
There•is no doubt tluit we are in accord
:with the people on this ques'ion, for an
o'verwhehnina majority of our " compatri
ots" condemn the grab absolut dy. So far
- as we know, 'there are but t*o journals that
defend that gigantic swindle, find both of
them are Democratic sheets, the Harrisburg
Patriot being at the head and the Welisboro
Democrat at,the tail. Here is the latest tit
' tcrance of our local exponent of " correct
English" on that subject:
"The Slabtown Index, the Mtulhill -4//f-
gator, and a legion of other newspapers ari
mad because President Orgitt, his Cabinet,
: the Vawrong Court Judges, the heads of
Depattments, and Congressmen have had
' their salaries increased so that they may live
in t lece . nt style. All their blowing does not
amount. to anytfiing. A committee of the
and llomze reported the appropria
tion hill, it itts,..4l. Sonic people oh
jei to it. I,ce,ith:. , tUe, congressme» did not
r-hilw out 11w item :Is to Mir increase. •="
Tht• salaries are not too hi h; not half en
ough. " Very many of the Congress-
Dien do not receive enough to pay their ex
penses while in Washington. As it costs a
large SUM to live in that city, ten thousand
dollarz; a year is little enough for their serv
ices. We hope in four years from hence,
when a Democratic President will be inau
gurated, that the Executive will receive a
hundred thousand dollars a year, anti the
other officials in proportion. A rich and
populous people cannot afford to be stingy."
Both as to sentiment and style, this is
worthy of the present Professor of " cor
rect English" himself. Of course it must
- be accepted as defining the Democrat's posi
tion on! the "grab."
The State Ticket.
In another part of this sheet - will be found
the Proceedings of the State Convention.—
The body seems to have been composed of
practieal workers. There was no buncombe
or twaddle indulged in, and no time wasted.
The delegates knew what they 'wanteC. and
went the shortest way to work to seen *c it.
- Nct believe the result of their labors will
o.ittisfy, the voters of the whole State. The
platform is an excellent one. We would es
pecially commend the fourth resolution—
that in regard to the submission of the pro
posed new Constitution.
As fur the ticket, it seems to have been
i,artial surprise to many political prophets,
but it is conceded on all sides to be : a good
one. The re-nomination to Mr. - Mackey fylr
State Treasurer was made alinost without
an organized opposition. Ile has filled the
office for thi'ee yearn, runi outing an that
time has been a faithful and efficiOt public
officer. The fact that since he entered up-
on his duties 0,000,000 of the State debt
have been paid MK and that it is now being
reduced at the rate of about $200,000 per
month sufficienily demonstrates the integrity
and •the administrative capacity of
The candidate for Supreme Judge is Ito
Isaac U. Gordon, of Jefferson county.
As spoken Of 1.. s a man of superior talc
land of personal integrity which is above
v suspicion Ile has had experience on the
Bench, and has enjoyed a large practice as
a lawyer, especially in land titles and ques
tions arising out of oil operations. His
nomination gives great satisfaction in the
western part of the State.
The ticket and the platform arc both em
inently sati4ae,tory. That they will be
he;ar i ply indorsed by the party in October
rher4 is no doubt.
In anotter part of this week's AGITATOR
we give i ,ice to " a growl from the ranks,"
which n ill be found decidedly spicy read
ing for all sort:: of pcoPie. It was received
sonic time ~ o , but has)l )een crowded out of
our columns front week to week by matter
of mote seeming impoitanee. - Most people
will, we Leiieve, agree with the writer of
this " growl" in deprecating the evil which
he so pointedly condemns. Probably every
"office-seeker" who ever engaged'in a per
sonal canvass of the county m ill join " Eras
tus" in heartily condemning the practice,
for such a canvass must involve an expends
iture of money, of time, and of self-respect
which many can hardly afford to make.—
We know that some of the candidates who
have heretofore engaged in this practice
have felt impelled to do so by'what seemed
to be the established custom and popular
en)ectation. Our correspondent fecognizes
this fact, and he will probably agree with us
that the " office seekers" are not alone to
blame for this disagree Ode mode of elec
tioneering. The people thenvielvds have
had not a little to do in fozntering it, and
when the great body of Ihimm grow thor
oughly and sincerely sicl of it, a.: :,ttine of
them already aro, this style Of burm" . will
be quickly dropped, because it will he found
politically unprofitable. \\'; brlieve it is of
ess real value even now thtiii Many politi-
elaus suppose, and we tru4t. the time is nea
tt liana when it will be tlionglititaleeent,
i l
it is certainly indelicate, for in y man to asl:
another personally to vote for inn.
There is considerable liumbug in the talk
about the offices,secking the man, and all
that sort of thing. We have known a few
cases where men have been elected to office
in that way; but such instances are very
rare indeed. Ordinarily the people have
very little time, opportunity, or inclination
to seek ,out candidates upon whom to be
stow their favors. As we read history, iu
every age of the world since the patriarchal
men have been advanced in social and m-
litieal position because, primarily, they de
sired and„labacd for their own advance
ment. " Seek and ye shall find" is a rule
that applies to the concerns of another and
a better life, but even during this one it \,is
generally the. case that those who seek are
the only ones who do find.
But there tire various ways of seeking of
fice, and that we arc considering is certainly
not the best, and it is high time that it gave
place to some custom that would be more
agreeabld topic hotly of electors and more
conduCive to 8 e meet ;iti the elected.—

in the American department, and he also re-,
eeived, as. it appears, $l,OOO from another
source for the stone consideration . . Mayer
admitted that he had received - inoncy for
concessions ter bars, and charged that, his
chief had shared in the spoils. This confi
dential assistant claims to have acted with
the knowledge and, tinder the orders of his .
chief—a claim which is flatly contradicted
by Van Buren. The Commissioners do not
undertake to decide this question of veracity
between Mayer and Van Buren; thongh their
opioions are not entirely hidden.' They are
sufficiently explicit, however, in 'condemn
ing Oen. Van-Buren for " having permitted,
through a period of months, from a want of
clear-sighted intelligence and clue vigilance,
the loose. management, market! fly irregu
larities, which have arrested the suceesi Of
the commission and brought dishonor on
the 'Republic." It must be admitted that
thisis•drawmg it quite mild in regard to a
man who wrote to the Secret ar. state
after the suspension of the cor,r,qo Slayer.
that " a great wrong had been done In a
worthy man."
There is one phase of this c.tindatous
piece of businesq io which Mt e attention
has been directed, but which ( eser‘es the
severest condenination. The "loans" and
advances receic l ed by the Chief Commis
sioner and his assistant appear to have been
made by men who,were anxious to open
bars-- for the sale of liquor
,under the aus
pices of the Commission. Messrs.' Jay and
McElrath report that fi Rsuch bars hcive
been opened on the grow dg of
,the Exposi•
tion, and three of thei were obtained by
the payment of moneys nd the promise of
an interest in the exp 'Stied profits. The
means employed seem to have been worthy
/of the end in view. Decent Americans who
have visited Vienna recently must have
been highly edified by this set of grogge
ries established 'by - Van Iluren's corrupt
Commission for the dispensation of " Amer
ican drinks" in the name of the nation and
' under the national colors! 'We are glad to
read that the State Department advised the
I seller of liquor licenses that the establish
' moist of a single bar would be of question
able propriety; but it is matter for regret
that the establishment of this particular
American in?litutiou was not absolutely pro
hibited. Seth a prohibition might not have
saved the Commission from falling by its
own eorruption,, but it would have saved
, the American , name from an additional semi-.
dal. It is certainly to be hoped that the
recommendation of the Special Commission
that thOW 11.11, 01011i/1 lxr. .1t 11111.“ di s owned
by the present American Commissioner wiii
' be promptly acted upon. While such a
course would not wipe out the disgrace
brought upon our name in the eyes, of the
world, it would i at least show that we have
the grace to feel ashamed of our humilia
tion. -

A Growl from the RaiA.s.
To the Editor ol the Agitator
The people of Tioga county are a patient
and long-suffering people, or they would eire
this have stamped with everlasting infamy
and disgrace that class of men who periodi
cally tramp over" . the county in search of of
lice. .I,very year about this time they 'start
ont, " Some in rags," some on foot, and
some in " velvet gowns," and all of them
with that lmngry look which characterizes
the half-fed hound of a poor backwoods
hunter. You can tell one of them as soon
as he lands in your town, by the way he
looks out of his sheepish eyes and by the
anxious shamelessness with which he in
troduces his business to you. If you will
stop to listen to him, he will modestly (?)
putlorth his claims—as if a being so degra
ded as to tramp over the country begging for
office had claims upon decent, hard-,working
people—and ten to one if he don't finally
worm something out of you whirl} he will
construe into a pledge, and so report you
all over the county. But his, first business
when he comes is to look for some noted
politician of the place with whom he can,
intrust the substantial arguments, and from
whom he will receive the assurance that the
town will "go for him." To the farmers
and lesser lights of the party these tramps
have various arguments. One wants the
office because he has been " unfortunate in
business," which in nine cased out of ten
simply means that at one time, when he was
following a legitimate business and one
which he was fit to follow, he had been
prosperous; but that since he hp,forsaken
an honest calling for politics, he has squan
dered and fooled away his property, and is
now one of the party's paulpers, literally
begging bread front door to door. If the
honest working, men of the county would
( 17
arresta fet' of them as vagrants " having
no visible nt ans of support," it would abate
this nuisance. -
But another one says " it belongs to our
part of the county"—as if " our part of the
county" meant anything more than his own
interest. What do you suppose the taxpay
ers of Jackson card whether " our member"
lives in Brookfield or Clymer, if he only
represents their interests in the _Legislature
well - and faithfully? What do you Suppose
the business men of Lawrenceville care
where the Sheriff bails from, if their inte
rests are only safe in his hands and the law
is faithfully executed by hiM?
Another one says, " Let it go around."—
Well, I say let it go around. But if it goes
around to those who - are deserving or only
decently fit for it, the office wouldn't reach
him in a thousand years. And so it goes.
'Every man has his claims—and oh, how - the
people despise them all! But the people
have nothing to say; their interests are not
ckinsulted. All they can do-is to fight the
potato bug, pay the taxes, eke out a scanty
livelihood—and pray.
Offices ate bought andsold in this county
both directly and indirectly. What does a
candidate leave money with ono and anoth
er throughout the county for, if he does not
intend to buy somebody? He may not buy
the voters, but in a majority of'eases be
buys the man he leaves the money with, and
his influence procures the votes. What is
the difference? It will figure up at about so
much a head in the end. Does it require
money to induce the people to vote for a
good man for office? Shall honest people,
who aro heartily disgusted with political in
trigues and snap-games, be, dragged to the
polls, like sheep to the slaughter, by the
hitMlngs of lioMe mad who kdolig A Act
which never did and never will seek him?
"But the people would not know we are
candidates if we did not go and see them." -
So lunch VI? bett,Kfor the people; tholes
they knot y4ilthe better. The lieffto,
If.now Aite nia in this county wholi . cefr'

of office—good, b.onest,' true', men; men of,
ability and integrity, lit fitr oily office the
*people have to Ml:re;
, 12011 they 'would be
sought out by these same peoPle.
I know of some good, - honest., noble
aearted men who have periodically traveled,
over the - county in Sedridi of votes, who
have said to me that they deplored ithisetts- ,
tom and despised it,' and wished it was oth
erwise, but that no.manTcould.get..an office
without so.humiliating himself. To wi t ti„elt,:
I have but, one 4 answer:'then stay in your
office, }bur store; or, On yottr .faint until lion
are sought after. Don'tbelittle yonrself Or
money or honors. ,And although the great
word ‘.`llonorable" may never be ,written
before your rfa - fne, yet - honor will he indeli
bly stamped , bn your heart and conscience
forever. . .
I have only written the above as a test
upon, which I trust the people of the enmity
will enlarge until our political atmosphere
shall become if little purer—so inneli 'so', nt

`The State
„ „
Conyention met at Harrisburg
on We'duesday, August 13th, at noon, and'
was called to order hy the Chairman of the
State Committee.
On motion of Mr:Houston, of Philadel
phia,- Samuel H. Miller, of Mercer, was
made temporary Chairman; .C. L. Magee of
Allegheny, J; W. Sayres of Philadelphia,
A. A. Shissler of Northumberland, N. B.

thanks in a neat speech, wken committees of

There being one contested spat from Hun
thi-gdon, Mr. Burr, of Philadelphia, moved
a committee of seven, which reported in fa
vor pf H.-G. Fisher. The Convention then
took a recess till three p. m.
— Oll - re-assembling the Committee on Per
manent Organization reported lion. A. G.
Olmstead, of Potter, for Chairman, with the
usual list of Vice Presidents and Secreta
ries. Mr. Olmstead made a pleasant and
impressive speech. ,
On motion of Mr. Mann, of Philadelphia
the Convention proceeded to ballot for a
candidate for State Treasurer, with the fol
lowing result: Mackey, 115; Henry, 18.—
The nomination, on motion of Gen. Camp
bell, of Cambria, was made' unanimous.
The Convention then proceeded to ballot
for Judge—Gordon, Paxson, and Butler be
ing the only candidates after the first ballot.
Ten ballots were taken, the last resulting in
77 for Gordon, 48 for Paxson, and 5 for
Judge ‘Gordon's nomination was then
made unanimous.
Mr. Mann, of Philadelphia, presented the
The Republicans of Pennsylvania, in con
vention assembled . , renew their expressions
of confidence in and devotion to the princi
ples of Republicanism, and declare,
First, That we heartily indorse and re
adopt the Republican National and State
latforms of 1872.
Second, That the National Aministration
comma ds our continued confidence, and is
entitles by its promotion of the best inte
rests i d prosperity of the Nation, to the
earnest •upport of the people.
Third . , That the Administration of Gov.
Hartranft calls for our wannest approba
lion. During the short time he has been in
the Executive Department he has establish•
ed a State policy which has justly endeared
him to the people of this Commonwealth,
and has amply justified the confidence we
diced in him.
Fourth, That while earnestly in favor of
vonstrionpj ratnrin, and ..f
Rion o our ?Mate Constitution as will make
it an effective instrument in preventing
punishing the corrupt abuses that have
crept in under our present system, we de
mand, emphatically and especially, that
whatever is done or left undone, the main
purpose for which the Constitutional Con
vention was called, the absolute prevention
of special legislation, shall be so place 4 be
fore the people as to secure their seirarate
and decisive expression thereon.
Fifth, That the' reduction of the State
,debt from $41,000,000 to $20,00,000, the
repeal of all State taxes on real estate, the
establishment of schools for the support of
soldiers' orphans, the maintenance of our
excellent and prosperous system of common
schools, the establishment of the policy of
paying of our debt at the rate of two mill
ions a year, and the generally flourishing
condition of our prosperous old Common
wealth, arc evidences that the Republicans,
during their twelve years' control in Penn
sylvania, have faithfully administered her
affairs, and that the reins of government
may be safely left in their hands.
sixth, That there should be rigid econo
my in the State and National Administra
tions, and the taxes should be reduced in
both as rapidly as is consistent with good
government, the maintenance of the public
credit, and the certain extinguishment of
the State and National debts.
Seventh, That the public lands belimg to
the people, and should be sacredly reserved
for homes for actual settlers; and. we pro
nounce against all further grants of these
lands to corporations.
Eighth, That adequate provision should
be made by law for the protection of per
sons engaged in mining and other hazard;
ouilorms of labor.
Ninth, That as retrenchment is required
to" lighten the burden of taxation and to
Continue the reduction of the public debt,
an increase of salaries is unwise, and we
condemn, without reserve the voting for or
receiving increased pay for services already
rendered, whether in State or Nation, and
demand that the provisions of the late act
of Congress by which the salaries were in
creased should be promptly and uncondil
tionally repealed.
Tenth, That we heartily denounce cork
ruption wherever found, and qre sincerely
desirous for honesty, economy, and political
purity in all official administration. To se
cu 'e this is the duty of every ; citizen; and
to this end every goOd man should feel
io,md not only to participate in politics but
ftet'labor actively to see that none but good
men secure party appointments or nomina
tions. •
Eleventh, That the practice of loading
the appropriation bill, essential to the sup
port of the Government, with objectionable
legislation In the shape of amendments to
ward the close of the session is a prolific
source of abuse and a fraud upon the peo
ple, and its reform is urgently demanded.
TAblfth, That lis the country and homek
industry have uniformly prospered under a
tariff so arranged as to afford both revenue
and protection, the present tariff should be
left undisturbed; and as all tariffs are levied
primarily for revenue, it would be a poor
government indeed which could not afford
to arrange its details so as to encourage the
growth of home manufactures, and the cre
ation of a remunerative home market for all
the products Of our soil.
Thirteenth, That order and security in
the States lately in rebellion must come
through the stern enforcement of the laws
enacted to protect life, liberty, and freedom
of thought, and cannot bb secured by ren
dering these just and necessary laws inope
rative through Executive clemency to unre
pentant assassins now undergoing punish
ment in pursuance of law. 1
Fourteenth, That as, during the time the
Republican patty has been in power, it has
had to confront graver difficulties and more
new and perplexing questions of govern
ment than ever were presented to any other
party to solve, and has solved them so judi
ciously and wisely that the country indorses
its decisions and accepts its work, it is the
only 'organization competent to meet the
grave issues that are now constantly arising
so as to secure the just rights of the whole
Fifteenth, That we sympathize with eve
ry movement to secure for agriculture and
labor their due influence, interests, and
rights, and the Republican party will be
their ally in every just effort to attain that
