STRANGE AFFAIR.—The following
case involved as it is in mystery, we
take t from the York True Democrat,—
We premisehy StatingAthat, as the re
sult of a-ch micas itnalygis, Dr. Schoep
pe has been arrested and committed to
prison. Th following are the facts:
' On the 28th of January last,.Miss
Maria M. Stinnecke, a main lady
aged i , eventy years,
whose placOrof resi
dence was the city of Baltimore, but
who was stopping temporarilrat Carl-
I-h., died suddenly, and as the sequel
will show, rather mysteriously in the
Miter place. She bad been in the habit
, of visiting Carlisle frequently before for
'> the benefit of her health, and on this
last occasion had formed the a‘cquain
lance of Dr. Paul Schoeppe, a young
Aiertnan physician residing in that Bor
ough, who it seems was pretty regular
in his attendance upon her np to the
time of her death. On the 27th of Jan
. nary,
_Miss Stinneeke was taken se-
. riously,ill and summoned the Doctor to I
. her bedside. The following morning ,
she wtA disco'vered by the chamber
lying in tin insensible condition,
in which she continued until the after
noon, when she died. After her re
mains had been taken to Baltimore and
the fuheral services were over, Dr. Paul
schoeppe and another person, after
calling in 'W. H. Miller, Esq., of Carl
isle, proceeded to examine the papers
of the deceased and discovered among
them a will bearing date November 17th,
1868. This will' bequeaths different
sums of money to variona' Educational
and Religious Societies, 'making the
Methodist and Presbyterian Board of
Publicatioff residuary legatee. It was
offered for probate in court, when fin
inediately D.:7; Paul Schooppe, by his at
torney, offered another of .later date,
which devis s . arrObequeathe all the
property of deceased to him and makes
him sole executor. This will is dated
in December last, is in the Writing of
Dr. Schoeppe himself, and attested by
, him and his father. I
The circuMstance Of Miss Stinnecke
-changingh her first will and making
another giving the whole of her prop
erty, amounting to about S50,000,•to au
entire stranger, has given rises to sus
picions that she was foully dealt, with,
and an accommodating dose' of mor
phine or some other poison was em
ployed by Dr. Paul Schoeppe to rid him
self of the only obstacle in the way of
- his immediate enjoymentof his newly
' found foitune. While, therefore, the
two wills will be the subject' of legal
examination and disposal in the of-legal
Court of Baltimore, the Judges have
ordered three hundred dollars out of
deceased's estate, to be appropriated to
the expense of a post mortem examina
tion, to ascertain whether or not mison
had been administered and death by
that means produced. The result of
the examination will be awaited with
painful interest. 'The genuineness of
Miss Stinnecke's signature to the will
present for probate by Mr. Paul Scho-{
eppe, is disputed, and-it is now alleged,
by persons acquainted with her hand
writing,, to be a forgery. It is said that
diets are already circumstances of a
sui4eiently suspicious character to tut
'Uitize the arrest of the Doctor. The
• whole affair is exceedingly strange and
mysterious, and further developments
will be required to throw the necessary
light upon the subject."

examination of the list we are led to
conclude that the people have made

able but indicative o a determination
to ' build well from tl c bottom upward.

cised. No place should ever be given
to any man, however deserving, simply
as a reward. It may be a fine thing to
be gen i erous when the cost of generosi
ty Is defrayed out of the purses of in
dividuals. It is quite another thing to
make a great parade of generous action
when the taxpayers have to foot the
bills. Unless a mania competent, strict
l honest,,striellg sober, and just in Ms
dealings between man and man, we can
'think of no service which entitles him
to reward at the ballot-box. Much as
we desire the preferment of the men
who fought the nation's battles during
the rebellion, exalted in the scale
of patriotism *as we hold them to be,
generally, yet we shall never urge the
preferment of an incompetent, sottish,
or dishonest soldier, for any place what
ever. Even such are entitled to praise
for the good they have done, but we
know no reason why the public service
should suffer that such men may bb
rewarded. i •
As to locality, patronage should be
distributed, where possible, so as to rep
resent the population to be served.—
Were all men intent on having the pub
lie well servedthis could be done al
ways. But unfortunately, there are
many men who forget the public in re
membering themselves. Ambition for
position has been, is, and for ought we
dare predict, will continue to be, the
greatest curse of mankind. We shall
give placernen the credit of believing that
they regard themselves qualified to fill
the places they want with credit. But
It does not follow that any hunter after
place can do the public better service
than any other man. We can find,'
without advertising, ten men equally
fitted for almost every place to be filled
in Tioga County. There are no great
men in very many counties where pub
lic business is admirably managed.- 7
Talent is rather diffuse nowadays ; that
is to say—qew men stand a head and
shoulderg above their fellows in intel
lect or competency. And we are very
glad to state that there is no lack of
competent, sober, }hoist, honorable
Imen to fill every position, from town
ship auditor to President of the United
States. - 1
Township lines are of little conse
'-qaprice in filling county offices. See
tiontiather than strict localities,
should be represented. It matters not
a copper to the general public whether
a candidate hails from Sullivan or Rut
land townships, or from Richmond or
Charleston. The , sections of which
these townships are the centers would
be well enough represented in eithr
case, and the county business would be
as much profited in one case as in the
other o State, county, and township lines
are for the convenience of transacting
strictly local business, and ought not to
separate the body -politic into warring
factions. Nothing so much disgusts
and tires us of the machinery of poli
tics as this eternal harping upon the
special claims of townships and bor
oughs. Tioga county interests are com
mon. What is gem' for the Cowanes
que is good for the Tioga river peoDle. it
is only gfumpiers aria aemagogues who
set localities by the ears.
One object hi this argument is to
arouse the people to a sense of common
interest in the selection of none but
competent and honest men to serve in
public places.
When the bill to abolish the 29 4 11 Ju
dicial District, came up in the Senate,
Senator Nagle stated that Senator (Beck
requested him to support the bill in his
absence. Next day Senator Beck, hav
ing returned from Philadelphia, de
nounced the act as au infamous out
rage, and pressed through the Senate
a repealing act. It will require a great
deal of excellent evidence . to convince
men who know Senator Beck that he
was not one of the main conspirators
against the peace and integrity of the
29th Judicial District.
When the Fifteenth Amendment was
pending in the State Senate, Senator
Davis ! of Philadelphia, moved that
the final vote upon it be postponed un
til the people of the State should have
an opportunity to accept or reject it.—
Mr. Davis is, we suppose, a democrat.
When his party was in power, and the
people of Kansas were asking the priv
ilege of voting upon a Constitution for
that State, Mr. Davis's party refused
them that privilege. The law required
the acceptance of the Kansas Constitu
tion by the people ; the law does not
require the submission of a proposed
amendment to the national Constitu
tion to a vote of the people of any
State. Still, it makes some difference
whose ()xis gored.
This is an age of progress. Yet we
had not looked for such a leap ahead as
that made by Mr. McMiller, (Dem.) of
Montgomery County, in the debate up
on the 15th amendment in the Legis
lature the other day. Mr. McMiller,
seeing the shadow of coming events,
turning to the lobby of the house where
sat half a dozen colored men, appealed
to them to vote with the democratic par
ty. The Republican party, he said, had
not been true to the negro, al , E , olt had not
elected him to office, " Conde with us,"
continued McMiller, Democrat, and we
will deal justly by you.". Probably the
colored men thought of the old song-L

The Fifteenth Amendment, about
which so much is being said at present,
and which is being discussed by the
House of Representatives in Harris
burg, reads thus:
AuricLE XV. The right of the citizens of
the United States to vote shall not bo denied or
abridged by the United States, or by any State,
on account of race, color, or previous condition
of servitude.
Section 2. That Congress shall bare power
to enforce this article by appropriate legislation.
So soon as a sufficient number of
States shall- have ratified this Amend
ment, and it becomes a part of the Con
stitution, we shall move for an' amend
ment to the Pennsylvania Constitution
establishing a certain degree of intern
gene-43 as the basis of suffrage'. Let the
people decree that from and - after a day
fixed,. no person shall be admitted to the
exercise of the ballot who shall not be.
able to read with ease. One of the
wisest of our statesmen has said t "The
success of free government depends
upon the intelligence of the citizen." ,
" The Sorosis," Chicago, has taken a
step forward in the Cause of equality
and now advocates impartial suffrage.
Its name has been changed to The Ag
itator, to the good taste of which we
are obliged to testify, having a decided
liking for the name. Some people were
disposed to laugh at this paper when,
about fifteen years ago, it appeared with
its aggressive names- The laugh disap
peared some years ago. To our name
sake we send greeting and good wishes.
If Mrs. Livermore and Miss Walker
cannot make the Chicago .Agitator a
power in the world of reform none else
need try.
The abolition of the 29th Judicial
District seems to have been at the in
stance of the leading men in Lycom
ing county. When the bill to repeal
the act for abolition went to the Rouse,
Mr. Niles, of this counWasked leave

to have been passed.
To the Republican County Committees,
GENTLEMEN :-I have before me, a copy of the
AGITATOR, of Nov. 11th, 1808, containing the
official returns of each township, at the Presi
dential election, from which I wish to point out
to you the strange anomaly that exists in choos
ing the delegates to our county Convention. Wo
profess to be ruled by the majority. We scout
the idea of the rotten Borough system, whereby
as much representation is given to ten, as is giv
en in a less favored locality, to ten thousand.—
Our Congressionl Districts arc laid out in propor
tion to our population, we are represented in our
State Legislature, by the same mode of prooeed
ure, and yet in the primary meeting to make
choice of our standard bearers, we allow" one to
put a thousand to flight." To illustrate the
point, I find there were 7500 votes recorded in
this county, from 36 Townships, which send two
delegates each to the Convention L--that is, 72
Delegates, which I have classified as follows:
2 Distriete, 1018 votes, '4 delegates
I " 474 " 2 "
6 " 2086 " 12 41
9 " •
2091 18 " '
7 .1 974 " 14 it
11 " 857 " 22 "
Here, at a glance, you see that it requires over
six men in the first two towns to be equal to one
in the eleven last towns; or, to put it more plain
ly, ono man's will, in the small towns, is worth
*it in the large ones. And still more forcible
will the inconsisteney.of such a. mode be shown
by the following
Towns, votes, delegates,

thus making 42 equal to 516. Then take
Towns, voted, delegates,
2 1018 4
2 . 94 4
bore making 94 equal to 1018.
The wily politician does not care a 11g for the
wishes of the 1018. If he can obtain the support
of the 94, his end is accomplished; surely this
evil only wants, pointing out and setting before
you, and that-sense of justice, which should tie
testa oviry lover of fair play, will induce you to
take steps for the removal of this unjust meth
od of choosing delegates. Itextir HOLEAO.
