A BRAVE (?) GENERAL.
Gen. 8. W. Crawford, In writing to
the Philadelphia Times, says he Is
ready to tramp out the pension system

to the muzzles of British cannons
and the cattle-plague. "Indicate
what's to be done, and I am ready."
A gentleman, writing from Madi

"Gen. Crawford received as much
pay in one year as the soldier he would

"This great General had more stylo

King William at the head of the
Prussian army; while to enter his tent
was more trouble than to enter the
harem of the Sultan of Turkey.
"The great query Is, why the 'Doc

Encampment of the G. A. It., and
blown from the cannon's mouth the
many thousands who resolved for the
pension system? Or why ho did not
appear before the Invalid Pension
Committee of fiOth and Gist Congresses,
take a seat, and 'tramp It out' like the
English did the cattle plague? Or
why did he not take a seat in the Na
tional Democratic and Republican
conventions and tell those delegates
who resolved, 'We are In favor of lib
eral pensions,' that he would 'tramp
it out as the English did the
mutiny and cattle plague.?' Why dfd
he not attend the Ohio, Iowa, and
Nebraska conventions this summer,
and tell the delegates he was going to

WHAT THE SGRIBES SEE AND HEAR
An Old L col Real Estate Case
Docidod by the Court at Potta
vlllo Franey Awarded tho
Tho property on tho east sido of North
Jnrdln street, south of Coal, and adjoining
tho rcsidenco of James J, Franoy, was the
subject of a decision by Jud ;0 Uruon at
Pottsvillo yesterday. Tho property ha
been in dispute botweon Air. Franey and
Michael Valerias and wifo for a long time.
It was sold at a Sherifl's salo and tho party
who bid it in turned It ovor to Franoy,
Valerias and his wifo thon disputod tho
salo, clai ulng that thero was collusion bo-J
tween tho bidder and Franoy, and they
havo continued to hold possession. The
decision rendered yesterday declares that
Franey is ontitlod to tho proporty. It is as
follows: "Thii is a ) roceoding under Act
13, Mny, 1871, to obtain poss' ssion of u cer
tain proporty, purchasod at Sheriffs salo by
tho pi ai nil If and sold as the proporty of
Vulorias and wife, who nro in possession.
Ho resists tho dolivory of possession and
has tiled an action attacking tho validity of
the Sheriffs salo on tho ground of fraudu
lent collusion on tho part of tho purchaser.
Can ho avail himself of such a dolonso in
this proccoding? Vhtovor morit thero
may bo in tho allegations of fraud, it is
clear to my mind thoy can not bo inquired
into in tho present proceeding.
"Tho act of Assembly, Sec. 5, says that
the court has inquired whether tho peti
tioner has bocomo the purchaser of tho real
estate, and says that a sheriff's or coroner's
deed for tho samo, duly acknowledged and
certified, shall bo full and conclusive evi
dence of that, first, beforo such court or
judgo. There is no provision made in this
proccoding for tho trial of such an issue as
is raised by tho defendants in tho affidavit
of the wife.
"Tho court is requestod to forbear giving
judgment only in tho ovent that tho parties
in possession do not claim under the do
fondants in tho judgment, or that they
claim by tillo from tho defendant prior to
tho roudition of the judgment, and are
thoroforo not included in tho excepted
cases. Duo proof of notico to tho suit
having been made, all the requisites of tho

Tho dlscovory that tfaoro aro outstanding
coupons which tiro markod paid on thi
SclooI Hoard and borough records is not
encouraging. It looks like bad manage
ment, or criminal intent, and il is hoped
that tho finance committee will bo able to
glean facts by tho next meeting of council
that will put mutters right. Early in tin
70' 8, when tho borough was in tho hands 01
un unsciupuliyUj gai g, coupons wero paid
several times ovor and no account was kept
of tho rcceipU aud expenditures of the
borough. It is hoped that this condition ol
aUairs is not about to devolop again. It
was not until tho Citizens' party took
charge ol tbo borough's, atl'.lrs that thi
many leaks wore stopped, but since that
timo that party has been so effectual!)
bound hand and foot that efforts to stop leak
through its agency would bo most difficult
Intho 70 s it was impossible to find out how
tho borough stood financially and tho audi
tors were obliged to draw a line and make
a now start. A worse condition cf affairs
was hard to find ana tho roiorm auditor,
had to work hard for their money.
Tho borough auditors are very important
officials and a gigantic mistaka was made
by tho citizens last spring when they failed
to ro olect Mr. Champion, who was ex
perienced in tiro business and whoso services
were invuluablo in making researches. A
good official should always be retained.
Council should show no partiality rf
gaming tho layiug ot pavomonts, oven
though it may step upon the toes of some of
its members occasionly. while it is true
that it is poor policy to pavo on the out
skirts and leave properties in tho center
of tho town ncgloctcd, it is oqually truo
that tho councilmon aro in a better position
to onlorco tho paving ordinances after they
first givo attention to their own properties,
Wo dosiro to say to our citizens, that for
