out so creditably not only the issue
of August ;'lst, hut all other issues
during our trip in Nebraska and
Colorado, The mechanical work is
at all times to be credited to them.
Though we were in error concerning
the date referred to, it does not in
validate the position we assumed in
saying that the narrow-minded .Jar
gon of the Shitlpltater intended it as
a slur on the Editor' of the Post,

indignities, proves that Jargon is un

An Appeal to the State Pres.
Immediately upon the organisa
tion oftne House ol Representatives
Congressman Mahon introduced a
hill authorizing the Court of claim-j
to pt -s upon the losses of citizens in
the border counties in the Confed
erate raid into and invasion of Penn
sylvania during the civil war. These
so-called "Border Claims" arc tor
property taken or destroyed in the
counties af Franklin, Pulton, Bed
ford, Somerset, Cumberland, Perry,
Adam- and York. In the case of
Chambersburg the losses were es
pecially heavy, the town being al
most entirely destroyed July
1864. When the raids occurred
the Pennsylvania border was always
defenceless. While fathers, hus-
bandsi sons and brothers were fight
ing the I iat ties ol the I'nioll their
home- were h ft without i rotoction.
Surely after thirty five years, in this
epoch of universal prosperity, a rich
and powerful government i-an reim
burse the losses of a people who en
dured and Suffered more than the
nt of their countrymen, north of
Ifasooaod Dillon's Line, from the
ravages of civil strife.
In pressing thin measure Mr. Ma
hon will need the co-o K-ration, not
only of all the people of this and
adjoiningt congressional districts, but
of the entire S!ate. We trust he will
not receive a jicrtunctory or luke
warm snport. He will of coarse
have the active assistance of Con
gressman Ziegler, of York, and Con
gressman Thropp, of Bedford, but
