LOOK OUT FOR YOUR TICK

Trust none other with the custody of
the tickets on election day. Beware of
tricks by Democrats and bolters. See
that no Republican trades to sWelt any
candidate's vote. Leroy Tabor wants
every Republic - an to vote for Gerry and
'Williams. Get out every- vote. Give
net Tuesday to your country—give ev
ery working hour to your country.
. (eep one-third of your tickets in re
ser 'e, until wanted. Watch out. Set
your challengers at the polls.and keep
thew there until the polls el&-al. Let
none hilt legal voters vote. Let us all
be active and vigilant.
On Friday evening, 21(h inst., Mr.
John F. - Donalilson was at Illossburg
buying whisky for the crowd in the
lintel bar-room, until midnight. We
turn, :14 ever, protest, against this mode
of electioneering, anti invite the voters
who do not belivve in stub irregulari
ties to retnetnig iL on the becond `Plies
day in (7eohyr. We forbear further
revelation., and respectfully ask the re
putable r rtion of his adherents to
probe the matter to the hot tom.
Aa for tickets, good people, there are
to" he several sorts. First—there is the
ticket at the head of this column, the
regular, straight Republican ticket,
Which we commendto all Republicans.
Nvery man on it is worthy and_ well
qualified- Then (here is the straight
hemoeralie tiel:(4," Mom Packer down,
with Donaldson for Prot honotary. Then
you may expect to see another ticket
of Donaldson for Tabor, for Prothono- ,
tary, and Cox, for Cameron, for Treas
urer. Then look for another ticket os
tensibly regular Republican, with Don
itidson's tonne in place of. Talbot's.
Then loot: for another ostem•ibly regu
lar Itepublienn ticket, with Cox's name
in phwe of Cameron's. h4t, the man
who Idly out the regular Ileket at the
head of this and b
se is it to de
tect pious - frauds, will not be deceived.
"ri y I il.
Mr. Donaldson on Monday exhibited
to us receipts from the Auditor Cyn
eral l'n settlement of his State taxes for
18117- ,'.ti``and a; receipt for $:150 on ae
co/u/(, tor 1869. These receipts are for
moneys paid over by Mr. Donaldson
/-inee the charges ofdefault were made ;
and hear date of September 1510. Mr.
I)•, therefore, has s'inply made a virtue
of necessity in p: , ing over ; dud the
date of receipts so far from disproving
the ehargo of default, completely ins
iffy it, and do not vindicate him.
But, if Mr. D. had the State moneys
on hand, What was he about that he
did not pay the dues for 1.567-S until .
last month'.' If not on hand, who had
the use of those moneys for two years ?
13ut tie reply is made to our charge
that Mr. Donaldson holds, Aill, up
ward (of :i':'10,000 of surplus fees due file
Commonwealth, as appears by the ree
-ords. Nor does. Mr. D. explain why
the Bingham Estate, Joel Parkhurst,
t _and other wealthy parties, appear as
his debtors on the dockets for twenty
years past—and this in face of the fact
that those partichavo always paid up
promptly. Until Air. 1). clears up•this
gravest of charges he - stands a defaulter
to the State, and in the light of one
who has refused to perfect the record,
that he might enjoy the public moneys
Republicans, Asa-Packer, Dem4ratic
candidate for Governor, is reputed worth
:.. 4 :20,000,00u. The rich, according to all
rules of justice, and right, ought to pay
their proportion of the taxes. Vet it is
charged by the Mauch Chunk Gazdle
published at his home, that 11
of millions has refused to pay his taxes,
as assessed, rince MO. That paper
vouches for the-truth of the statement,
touching the model Democratic candi
Mute for Governor of Pennsylvania :

property. But ho refused to pay it and had him
self assessed in Philadelphia. Suit was brought
against him and it cost the county some $2,000 1
to collect it. Fines that date, 1567, Packer has
paid no 'personal tax in Carbon county. To es
,ape doing co, ho had himself regularly assessed
in Philadelphia, though his wife and falnily M—
aid() at Mauch Chunk,
But the history does not end here.
Mr. Packer had himself assessed in.
Philadelphia, it is true, but fur how
much, think you.reade'r ? Now his as
seasment by the Mauch chtcrik assessor
amounted to $1,153,435 valuation, of
which $2T),000 was real estate; leaving
a valuation of $1,128,385, personalty,
, upon which the above tax was levied.
His return to the Philadelphia assessor
was as follows for personal property :
Money on interest ........................... 8,500

worse than this remains to he leffl,'fy;
witness the following front the same
paper quoted above,:
"But worse than all, this eltazt ' lpio» of Penn ,

Of course, comment is unnecessary.
For here is a man Of millions, and a
Democratic candidate for Governor of
this Commonwealth, who refuses to
bear his proportion of the burdens of
'of local taxation. Wasit not last `.lllll
: that the orators of that party went, &Tut,
the country ,howling beea . %se the poor
men had to pay all the taxes \Vell, if
all rich men sneak out if it as does Mr.
Packer, the burden must of cottrge fall
upon somebody—upon the honest small
proprietors. Oils man Packer has a
reputation. for diqniting with the tax
collector, it is charged. No good eiti
',Zen does that sort, of business, either iu
pennsylvaii in or elsewhere. After this

Genera/ deny he sent a letter to us, re
questing us to so announce his name?
After this shameful falsehood and du
plicity we feel free to say, that no man
so rockless of his word ought to be en
trusted with the eontrol and custody of
the public nioneys. We have refrained
front an attack upon (leneral Cox, an
old personal friend, up to this Otime;
but neither lie nor any other man,
friend or foe, shall publish such fraudA
without rebuke. And Gen. Cox's
statement that he had a clear majoi ity
of nine, first and second choices; in the
Convention, is as ridiculously void of
truth as the statement We refute__ by
publishing his letter -to Mr. Loveland
Neither Cameron nor ('ox had delegates
enough instruered Vor them to nomi
nate either. The result turned upon
I the preferences of uninstructed dele
gates ;\ and after the foregoing exhibit
we ti ieve that most reasonable men
will agree with us that the Convention
did well in selecting Cameron.
Republicans, on the :KIM day of No
vember, tOe debt of this State Was
537,937,788,2.4. A'rom that time until
1861,the Democratic party bad the con
trol of the State Government in its own
handl Though twice lospig the Gov
ernor, they had the legislative branch
of the Government always, either by
the House or the Senate, or both: But
when Curtin took his scat as Governor
the debt was been
increased a trifle during the if years
named under Democratic rule. On the
:loth of last November, after eight - years
of Republican rule; the State debt was
And that is the ditllarence between
Republican and Democratic rule. Sub
tract the debt last November from that
of 18(10, and you have the total reduc

The misguided men who are in this
county seeking to array the I,vort,t; ele
ments of society against the friends of
law and order, may take "warning of
the calamity they invite upon their
own heads. It they read history—and
some of them do--they may discover
the unchangeable law :which controls
social action and reaction. When re
putabje men seek out, and use for sel
fish c intrposes, the demoralized and
abandoned on teftStS of society, there
comes a day when they will find them
selves enslaved l,y their hose tools, and
defiled as by Pitch. Hut '" whom the

Judge Williams-is again in-the field
on the Republican ticket. Shall any
Republican se acti that the reproach of
1887 shall be fastened upon us in 1869 * ?
Judge Williams is a man whose abil

merely a. politician, without:_reference
to Justice and right.

Friday week—midi:ea the high-priests
of Democracy to the wall. They were
combined to depress government howls
by raising the price of gold ; and by
noon, by a series of bold operations,
the gamblers had carried gold up to l(7.
Just then a despatch came over the
wires from 'Washington with orders to
sell $4 L 000,000 of gold, and to place $lO,-
000,000 on foreign account. - Down went

with it a dozen of the heaviest brokers

millions to the Government when it
was being warred s upon by the Demo

Marl( it : I\[r. ponithlson did not play
over the State tax for 1867 until June
23,1869, and only then when rho
.eount had been placed in the hands of
the Attorney General. Observe, also,
that tip to Aiigust 25, 1869, he had not
paid any part of t lie State tax for 1868.
In fact he only paid on the account of
180 S when it became certain that the
Attorney General was about to issue a
summons and bring him into court.
As a matter of information to the
voters of Pioga County we may state,
that while the Union Armies were at
work putting down the rebellion, Cyrus

to carry on the war. That may reco►n

On 111 r. Donaldson's manner.of doing
business do not relate to the " trifling
services" performed for poor men, such
as searches, transcripts, etc. Our charge
is, that the apparently uncollected fees
on the docket are chiefly against rich
men, and that the Commonwealth is
kept out of its dues thereby. All things
considered, we would as soon trust. two

- During Geary's three years the State
(ax on real estate has been abolished,
and taxes reduced $7,147,103,92. By
this reduction 'Tioga County has been
saved the sum of $29,268, or'nearly $lO,-
000 a year. If you don't like that, you
can vote . for Packer and return to the
old system of taxing every acre of im
proved land to carry on the State Gov
ernment. How do you like it? .
You who are in faVor of doing public
business according to law, and of col
lecting- and paying Aver to the treasury
all moneys belonging to it, can" show
that you are in earnest by voting for
Leroy Tabor. No public officer, in this
county, ever so faithfully guarded the
public treasury as did he while sheriff.
He is a man whp obeys the law and
requires others to obey it. it is fidelity
to the common interest against selfish
ness and criminal neglect. Which do
Why should not the Bradford Argus
(Copperhead) take up the cudgels for
the bolters' ticket in Tioga County? Is
not the Argus a renegade Republican
paper ? And is not Judge Parsons a
bolting Republican ? He bolted with
McKean S, Co., years ago ; and what
was natural as milk to a babe,
wont over to the Copperheads when lie
was, with his leader, whipped out.
Every other Democratic paper in this
region is out for the bolters in this coun
t,. That is all right.
For a few years, we elieve, Mr. Don
aldson has been entitled to $2OOO of fees
and clerk hire before handing over 50
per centum of any surplus to the State.
The surplus fees since 1804 average over
$7OO per annum. How may payments
on account of surplus fees has Mr. Don
aldson made for the last five year.?—
Will he show his receipts?
