J. Law rence, their support ou election day. Since the campaign opened we have received mauy new subscrib ers. Those of our tax payers Who are not already subscribers to the REPUBLICAN should by all means have their name plafied on our list. This is not an ofT year for Coru in the west* or a correspondent of the! tlarrisburg Telegraph is a large liar. He reports having seen an ear giown in Ida county, lowa* that was Four feet long and weighed thirty-six pounds. The three arrests made in Dushore recently for the violation of the liquor law Which we gave a fullaccountofin our i»<suo of the oth, were settled on Saturday last. The inditement against Cha».

The accident was purely accidental. An exchange says that every newspaper in the State should pub. lisli the fact that burnt corn is a sure cure for hog cholera. It was first discovered by the burning of a pile of eorn belonging to a distillery at Peoria. It was thrown to the hoga and readily eaten by theim before that time a number had been dying each day with the cholera, but the disease immediately disappeared. The remedy is ao simple that it can be easily tried. Court adjourned on Tuesday and will convene oil Monday Sept. 23d, 'B9. There Were but two Com monwealth cases tried, other indite ments that Were on the list were settled and Inany of those advertised in tli3 trial list were settledi Had there not been two special Juries summoned for a two week's term of Court, the entil'e business could have been disposed of this week. Cases put down on the trial list, however, to be heard during the second week could not be tried this week owing to the absence of those concerned. The call of a two Week's lerui has done much good, however, in the way of mutual settlement be tween parties. There are a number of Cases on the trial list dated back i as for as 1872 and we predict that at J the expiration of December term the entire list will be disposed of. Sullivan County is disgraced by an Attorney who will stoop to the most degraded ami contcmptable resorts to early a point of any hitman l»eing We think in existence. He is located in Dushore and has no hair on the top of his head and when a tritle excited his eyes bulge out like two peeled onions. It seems that this uian had some difficulty with a gentleman in the county Who is en gaged in the liquor business last week and threatened to take his license away from him unless he would comply with his wishes. We understand that this gentleman is j only one of the many landlords of the county who he has threatened in the same manner. Such actions are not only a disgrace to the man Who stoop to such degraded posi tions but is a slur upon our Courts of Justiee, as an assertion of this kind is equal to an expression of:"I run the courts in this county and unless you comply with my wishes you must go." This surely must be humiliating to the court. JBemfce, Sept. 16<A' 'B9. Mil EDITOR : In the hist issue of your paper an article appeared sign ed, "a Democrat" of this place, stat ing the influence Which was used at the polls at the election of democrat ic delegates Sept. 7 th. This state ment can be affirmed by a number of that political faith and wi'l l>e indue time, and furthermore that such pro ceedings should be tolerated in any county in this Commonwealth is an insult to the banner that Qoats upon our public buildings, State and Na tional—the stars and stripes. It is a direct blow to the Declaration of Independence which gives to each individual equal rights, i. e., life> liberty* and the persuit of happiness and that any party or individual should be permitted to use there sur plus of illgotten gains to further there corrupt ends is a question which will confront the voters of this county on November sth. Such an individual should have ample time to reflect over his unjust actions and the duties of official life should not be allowed to trouble him. The present contest for Sheriff is one between industrial and moral worth, not Wealth and should receive a Verdict that it justly deserves. The Republican nominee is not uii- I der inditement for the use ol' rUm.j . Rum influence must yo. DEMOCRAT No. ' Judge Gansel of Muncy Valley ' made us a pleasant call, while in at ! tendance at court, on Monday. Judging from the speech of peo ple on our streets this week there is no question but that Win. J. Law rence will be elected Sheriff of this county in November. We were told to-day (Tuesday) by ail old time and an tttz Democrat that he verily be-- lieVed that Lawrence would be elected by a good majority. The gentleman admitted that Mr. iJtz had not been true to the Democratic principles during the past years and snid that it would teach him a good lesson should he be defeated. The Dushofc Gazette in last week's issue demands that Demo crats "stick" to the ticket and vote j for tldlninees regardless of the posi tion taken by one of them during i the past years. Democrats what j etttt you expect by by "sticking" to the ticket. We dare say that there is no better democrat in the county than F. M. Crosslcy. He lias taken an at'tive part in Democratic | circles and was one of the principal i workers in this section last fall, for the success of the entire Democratic ticket. What is his reward ? Why he was thrown overboard in the Democratic convention Sept. 10th, and an untrue Democrat taken in his stead. What has John Utz the nominee for sheritl ever done to further the success of the Democrat ic Party of Sullivan county? lie caine outasan IndependentCiuididate for SheritF in 1877 and won over the Democratic nominee. I)o you call this good Democratic principles? Is he a "kicker" or a "sticker" to the party?" Should a nominee ofi this kind attd one who received his nomination by the use of boodle,' receive your support? No, gentle-j men he lias placed himself in a posi-j tion where he should not receive the ; support of any true principled Demo crat or Republican. In 1886 Mr.j Utz bolted the ehtire ticket made by the Democratic convention and to hitll Russel Karns for Member and j .Trilin Yonkin 2d, for Associate, Judge owes their defeat. These arc facts which can not be disputed, j Would you not prefer to vote for ai man who has been true to the prin-j ciplcs which he advocates, even! though they are in opposition to your judgment, than for a man who has no principle ? If this is your conviction, we feel confident that you will fall in the tanks of the people's candidate, Wm. J. Law rence, and give hi in your welcome support in November next. The Republicans of Sullivan coun ty, through their delegates acted most wisely, and judiciously in nom inating Wm. J. Lawrence of Du shorc for Sheriff. Mr. Lawrence is a tlative of Sullivan county, and has passed all the years of his life among us. While he is a very modest and retiring gentleman, who has not made himself acquainted in portions of the county remote front his resi dence, yet by his honesty, integrity, and fair dealings with all, with whom he has had dealings, he has made himself hosts of friends. He has resided the greater portion of his life in Cherry and Dushore, but for oue or two years he resided at this place. And we only speak what we are entiiely sure of and know from personal association with the people, when we say that he will receive a most flattering vote where he is best known. Cherry, Colley, Dushore, LaPorte, Davidson and Shrewsburj 1 will give him a heavy vote, enough we feel assured to put his election beyond any doubt if the rest of the county, or the portion commonly known as the West will only give him the full party vote. Mr. Lawrence is a Republican Iroiu principle, espoused the cause ot Republicanism when a very young man from his oWn convictions, con trary to his family teacllihgs, and while he has not taken an active part in politics, and has been liberal in his local political views, he has | been an earnest consistent Republi can on State and National politics. We can conceive of no reason why every Republican in the county should not give him their honest and earnest support; alid if they will we nre willing to stake our word and reputation ns a political prophet, that he will be triumphantly elected 'in November. Dr. Herrmann, the Republican nominee for Coroner, has man}' friends in the county and is num bered among our best physicianß. Saturday Sept, 28th, will be a gala day for the Odd fellows of Sullivan county. Arrangements are being perfected for a grand picnic to be given by IjaPorte Lodge and invi tations have been issued to the sister lodges of the county to at tend. The picnic will be held in the grove on the Western shore of Lake Mokolua. It is hoped that all lodges of the county will be well represent ed as a general good time is expect ed. G. M., David Cralt of Wyalus" ing, will be present and deliver an address. Lecture on NeVada. A highly appreciated audience greeted the Rev. Samuel P. Kelley of Reading at the Court House, on Monday evening and listened with deep interest to his lecture on Ne« vada, which was highly instructive and exceedingly amUsing. RoUnds of appiailse greeted his new stories and the audience coiild have listened another hour, lie gave a description of the remarkable features of the State of Nevada, in mineral, find boiling springs, the resources of the section ttnd its peculiarities, with a vivid description of the processes of mining and mulling silver ore; intersperced with capital stories of stage drivers, gamblers, preachers, judges and noted characters. He also gave narratives founded on his acquaintance with Hank Monk the stage driver who took Horace (Jreely through on time, with the late tl udge Terry who was shot re cently by Deputy Marshall Xagle, with Judge Perley Who was one of the seconds in the BrodericK duel and others. His funeral story hi which the great Charley Brown figures, was perhaps the best, and better than Mark Twain Burk Fan shawe funeral. Ho touched on the Chinese and Indian questions at length and gave appropriate stories in illustration. The descriptions of Lake Tahoe, the rivers with no out lets, and sketches of pioneer life were new bright and Iresh. The lecture was exceedingly good and merited a much larger audience than was present. Those who were in attendance were delighted with the evenings entertainment and paid the IlcVerend gentleman many compli ments. A council was held in the new Baptist meeting house lately erected in Shrewsbury twp., on Thursday afternoon, Sept. 12th, to recognize the new church organized there. Rev. J. (}. Miles was moderator, and Bev. R. B. McDanel of Northumber land was clerk. Delegates from 19 churches in the Northumberland Baptist Association were present. After devotional exercises the state ments concerning the organization of the new church were made. A preaching station has been main tained at Allegheny school hoUse for a number of years. A*, a series of meetings held last winter - v num ber of additions were made to Mie LaPorte and Eagles Mere chute*, and the distance being so great, it was thought best to organize a new church there. The council declared itself satisfied with the statement, and voted to recognize the new in terest as a regular Baptist church. In the evening the recognition and dedication services Were held. Rev. S. 0. Reading of Williamsport., preached the sermon. Rev. 11. C. Munro of Muncy, offered the prayer of recognition. Itcv. J. T. Judd of LeWisburg, gave the hand of fellow ship. Bev. j. G. Miles of Allen wood, gave the charge to the church. Mr. James Culbcr of Muncy, ad dressed the trustees, and the dedi catory prayer was offered by Rev. R. B. McDanel of Northumberland. The services concluded with the benediction by Rev. A. B. Still of Danville. The new church is to be called the Rock Run Baptist church. Win. Hill and James llUzzey are deacons. Wm. Hill, Matthew Tay lor, and f\ M. Sullivan, are trustees. Mrs. Jane Taylor, clerk, and Wm. P. Taylof Treasurer. The meeting house is a neat little frame structure, 30x40, costing SI2OO, all paid for.
