Scouten, editor of the Dushore
Gazette , did considerable blowing
last week. We consider the source
and pass it by.
The rain during the early part of
this week can truthfully be compar

Mosrs Lewis of Ilillsgrove, while
transacting business in town on

renewed his subscription to the

soys the REPUBLICAN is by odds the
best paper published in the county.
By an act of the Inst legislature
approved by the Governor, the 6th
day of May last, each county in the
state is entitled to a free scholar
ship in the Pennsylvania Museum
and School of Industrial Art, in
Philadelphia. The appointment is
to be made by the Governor.

The recent appearance of the
Gazette and Jtulletin to an eight
page paper and issuing both morn
ing and evening edition at a re
duced price of 25c, per month, will
give it a wide circulation through
out adjoining counties. The Gazette
as we have oftiin remarked is an
excellent reliable paper.
There are business men who de
cline to advertise in a paper because
they say, it won't do their business
any good, but when they have made
an improvement will hasten to ask
the newspaper man to give them "a
notice" so that the attention of the
public may be called to their way
of doing business.

That there is no real Ingham
ring we have already stated, but
what the Gazette is pleased to name
the Ingham ring is the convention
which nominated Lawrence and the
nine hundred worthy citizens who
supported him. We believe 1
these citizens feel better in the
consciousners that they did their
full duty in their efforts to redeem
the count}' from the power of boodle
than honest Democrats feel in the
success of the boodle candidate for
The Democrats finally give up
everything but the Governorship in
lowa, and everything but Governor
and legislature in Ohio. They are
also compelled to admit that In
Ohio the personal unpopularity of
Foraker, and in lowa the question
of Prohibition, brought about the
defeat of the candidates for .Gover
nor. They tried hard to make it
appear that the people of those two
Slates had finally Adopted Free
trade, but it would not go down.
Lenders of the Democratic
party of Sullivan county are
making great calculations on a
grand victory next'Fkll. They are
frank to confess that they are
anxious for the Prohibition party
to putin nomination a full county
ticket in which event they boldly say
will give them an overwhelming
majority. The Prohibition party
has experienced much and will not
be led astray by the man in lamb's
clothing next Fall.
Guss Smith of Fofksville, is al
ready making a desperate light for
the nomination of the Democratic
party, for the otlice of Treasurer.
Guss don't hesitate to write his
friends to assist him in his under
taking. It is rumored that this nom
ination lias been promised many by
the leaders. Of course all but one
will he doomed to disappointment.
Guss owing to his untireing work for
the success of the leaders of the
party thinks he deserves the honors
of the office at their hands. It is a

If the Gazette can be belief ed
there is no longer a Democratic; or
Republican party in Sullivan coun
ty. it does not claim the defeat of
Lawrence was a Republican defeat.
; It does not claim that the electing
of Utz was a Democratic triumph.
It says plainly that the defeat of
Lawrence was only the defeat of the
Ingham ring. The success of Utz
was the success of the I?oodle ring.
And if the Gazette is to be credited
personal merits had nothing to do
with it, for now that the election is
over, that paper lands Wm. Law
rence and Lawrence Brothers very
highly. If Democratic principles
had nothing to do with it, and per
sonal merits had nothing to
do with the result what is the infer
ence? Capital and capital alone has
triumphed over honest labor.
Peter Gavitt of LaPorte twp.,
while hauling wood with a three
year old span of steers on Saturday
last meet with quite a serious ac
cident. He was in the act of fasten
ing a log-chain to the end of a log
when the steers for some unknown
cause started on a run, the chain in
some manner swung around Mr.
Gavilt's leg below the knee and
fastened. The oxen ran to the barn
a distance of one-fourth mile drag
ging Mr. Gavitt on the ground*
I lis clothes were torn from his back
and his I'bdy fearfully bruised.
Small pebble stones were sunk in his
flesh and removed by assistance.
The new Episcopal church which

Mere collapsed on Tuesday last, i
The structure-was nearly inclosed.
The tower which was 35 feet high
and built of stone fell to the ground.
Where once stood the frame of a
beautiful church is now the scene of
a huge pile of stone. Fortunately
working men were not engaged on
the building at the time owing to
rain which came down in torrents
We have heard of but one cause as
signed for the misfortune—poorly
constructed. Considerable ill-luck
has overtaken the building contract
or of said building. Only a short
time ago we recorded a sad accident
by au arch falling, resulting in break
ing Aaron Bennett's leg and injur
'ing several other employees on the
building. La Rue Munson Esq., of
Williamsport was telephoned, re
lative to the mishap and will visit the
same at once.
The letter written by Hugo of
Elkland, published in the Gazette
last week, commenting upon the
letter written by us to said gcnle
nien during the eve of election*
plainly sets forth that he wishes the
voters of Elkland to kiuw that he
runs that township on election day.
He says:l did my duty as I hope
the returns ot Elkland will show."
Voters of Elkland this is a compli
ment to you and you will no doubt
appreciate it. In this section of the
county shou'd a man make an as
sertion of this kind he would receive
a cold shoulder from the independ
ent voter at future elections. Mr
Hugo may meet with like indepen
dence in the future. 80 far as our
letter to Hugo is concerned we do
not deny one word ot it. The facts
of the circumstance was—Hugo was
absent from home and we took this
plan of informing him of what we
had learned and the result should he
violate the election law.
For the information of those who
have not seen the letter we publish
it below:
Elkland, J'a., Nov. 1, 1880.
ME. HUGO, SIR: —I have learned
since my arrival in Elkland, that
you have received money from a
certain individual to further the
election of John Ute. Should 1
hear of you using money in this
event unlawfully, I will prosecute
you to the extent of the law.
W. 11. CHENEY;
Chairman Rep. Stand. Com.
Should you be arrested for this
crime the otllce ot Commissioner
would be much disgraced.
The county is full of candidates
asking for the nomination of the
Democratic Convention for the of
fice of Treasurer. We have already
heard of seven asking for the honors
of this office. A mong the number

is slightly connected with tlie
Gazette published at that place.

is aWI established fact, however,
that Geor<rie lias risen as high as he
ever will get to the eyes of the
people of Sullivan county—the tool
of John 0. Scouten.

The report that vice-President
Morton had taken out it liquor
license is authoritatively denied by
his private secretary.
Following is the denial taken from
the above mention paper :
Ellerslie, Ithinecliffe-On Hudson,
Non. 2.
I)KAR SIR: In reply to your letter
of the 26th ultimo addressed to Mr.
Morton 1 beg to say that there is
no truth in the statement made in
the telegram to the JMily JVcws
which you inclose that there is a bar
connected with the new building
erected and owned by Mr. Morton
in Washington. The building is
conducted as a family apartmeut
house, apartments being leased by
the year, and Mi 1 . Morton has never
entertained the idea of permitting
any part of it to be used as a bar.
Very Respectfully,
Private Secretary.
For some time pant the Lake Mo
koma Land Company has be<Mt
anxious to lower the water in Lake
Mokoma in order that they might
make some much needed improve
ments at the head waters Ol the
Lake—by cutting down trees brush
iVc., which at present is to some ex
text overflowed with water. To ac
complish their undertaking, it was
necessary to take the valve oil tlio
main waste gate, which is made of
large sewer pipe. Atty. Clinton
Lloyed telegraphed Wm. .Mover
general superintendent of the Lake
property, some days past to remove
the valve. Mr. Moyer endavored
to comply with his request but
found it impossible for some unac
countable cause. '1 he valve is
buried in water to the depth of 12
or 18 feet with a lever attached ex
tending several feet out of water.
Mr. Moyer notified Mr. Lloyd of
his fruitless undertaking. Mr
Lloyd at once sent word that he
would send a "diver" up and that he
would go down to the bottom of the
lake and make light the difficulty.
The day set apart for the arrival of
this (unlike event to take place in the!
wilds of Sullivan) was Monday last.
Everybody was anxious to see the
feat performed and many watched
on the street crossing to see if the
noon stage bore the man to our
midst who would dive into the cold
waters of Lake Mokoma at this
season of the year for love or money.
To their surprise the supposed man
came and alighted from the vehicle
at the Mountain House where he
Registered for the day. After he
had partaken of a hearty dinner he
proceeded to the Lake. No sooner
had the heavy weight (for he was a
two hundred and twenty-five pound
er) disappeared over the hill when
several of our people, viz: Atty. E.
M. Dunham, A. Walsh, Dr. Hill and
Chas. Tiuklepaugh left in great haste
for the> lake to see the feat
performed. Dr. Hill was extremely
anxidus and was the first man to
answer present, on the ground,
whether he thought there would be
a coroner's inqilest held or not, can
only be revealed by himself. After
remaining on the shore for a time
in the cold drizzling rain thej r by
chance learned that the gentleman
preseut was not the person whom
they had took him to be but that lie
was the proprietor of a GasFix'rs and
Plumb establishment in William Sport
Geo. Croll Esq., who had come up
to make investigations. The boys
on learning this remarked that they
had business home that required
the'r immediate attention. On their
arrival to the city they were remind
ed—Did you ever get left ?
LATER. —President Lloyd has
ordered that there be a coffer-dam
built around the waste gate and the
repairs made. Mr. ('roll wdl re
main and oversee the construed >n |
of the same.
