A Point in Election Law.
The Supreme Court lias recently de
cided a question that had long remain
ed unsettled, and respecting which elec
tion boards and the lower courts have
not always agreed.
In February, 1907, A. K. Johnson was
duly elected Judge of Kleetion in Minim
township, Columbia county. At the
June primary election he failed to at
tend, and one of the inspectors appoint
ed Whitiii" Hess Judge, and Hess was
duly -w n and served at that election.
At t. gr- oral election, Johnson appear
ed at the polling place and demanded
to be sworn as the regularly elected
Judge. The other election ollicers hold
ing that Hess had become legally the
Judge, refused this demand, and Hess
was sworn andserved. In an election con
test that followed, the contestant, con
tended that Johnson was legally the
Judge, and that Hess having no right
to act as such the election was void
The court below adopted this view and
threw out the vole of Milllin.
Tho Supreme Court held that in law
tho appointment of Hess was good
merely for the election at which ho was
appointed and served, and that John
bou was by law entitled to serve when
lie appeared and claimed this right.
Hut the decision had a string to it. The
court further held that while Johnson
by his election was the Judge tic jure,
Hess, by his appointment, was Judge
Ac facto, with color of title, and there
fore had authority to act as such ; that
although Johnson had in law a right to
perform the duties of the otlice at the
general election, and the other election
officers were mistaken in holding that
Hess was legally entitled to act as Judge,
they nevertheless had authority to swear
Hess as Judge, and his action as such
was valid. On this ground the decision
of the lower court was reversed and the
election held good. Krickbaum's Con
tested Election, 221 Pa. 521.
The net result of the decision would
appear to be this : 1. An election officer,
regularly elected in February, has bv
law a right to serve as such throughout
the term. 2. If he fails to appear at anv
election held during the term, the per
son appointed to serve in his place, has
by law a right to serve only at that elec
tion. 3. Hut if both appear at the next
election following, the other members
of the election board may lawfully
swear either, and thereupon he may
serve. In such a case, it practically
rests with the other members of the
board to say which shall be sworn and
act, and tho action of either after hav
ing been sworn is legal.
In this case, no fraud was alleged,
and it involved only the legality of the
action of Hess after the other members
of the board had sworn him as Judge

Worthy of Prothonotaryshlp.
WallaccJ. Harnes, of Heachlake, can
didate for Prothonotary on the Itepubli-
can ticket, is a native of Wayne county,
and is now about forty-seven years of
age. His paternal ancestors lived here
when Indians and wild beasts were plen
tiful. His great-grandfather and wife
were captured by the Indians a few days
before the battle of Miuisink, but made
their escape, being aided by a Tory who
had previously assisted the Indians, and
whose wife the Indians had scalped not
supposing the family to be Tories. Mr.
Parncs's mother, whose maiden name
was Grace Marshall, is a relative of the
llellainy family which came from Eng
land in 1S32, and settled in this county.
In his boyhood he worked on a farm
and attended the public schools. At an
early age he hired out to work, and a
few years later, having saved what mon
ey he could, he entered Chesbro Semi
nary at North Chili, N. Y., where, study
ing diligently and working at odd jobs,
he completed his school life.
In September, 1SS4, he married Miss
Elizabeth Olver, daughter of James A
Olver, and has always lived at Beach
He has always been interested in linn
bering, and of late years has made that
liis chief occupation.
Mr. Harnes lias been prominent in
Sunday school and church work for
manv vears, and every Sunday finds
him in his place at service.
He has always been ready to help
those in need or in trouble, and often
in a practical way. He is a total ab
stainer, stands for what is noblest and
best in life, and has ever labored, by
precept, by example and by liberal giv
ing, to lift humanity up to a higher

CANDIDATES, LOOK PLEASANT!
You will all be successful, but with dif
ferent degrees of success. Some will be
SUCCESSFULLY ELECTED, others will
be SUCCESSFULLY NOT ELECTED.
Which is the greater success will depend
upon tho man, and time, and it will take
years to determine. Thoso who are elected
will take up the duties of their respective
offices, and their ability to develop the
latent manly attributes that lie dormant
within them will be restricted by tho
environments of the ofiico itself, as well
as those that surround a man who is un
der obligations to the general public.
The successfully defeated man will bo in
a position to answer tho KNOCK of
OPPORTUNITY, which will surely come
to his door, for there was a purposo in
his defeat, which in tho years to come
will bo made very plain, and for which
he will bo thankful. It is not best that
wo should have what we WANT, but
better that we should have what we
NEED. Some people think they NEED
what they only WANT, and often do not
WANT what they actually NEED. It is
a good thing for us that the limitations
of our power are human.

Both parties are pledged to a Revision of the Tariff. The Demo
crats because they believe in Free Trade or a Tariff for Revenue
only. The Republicans because
manufacturing interests are small, claim that they are not receiv
ing proper attention. The fight by the Democrats will be on
thoso articles which they claim are used by the rich, silks, cut
glass, etc. The Democrats claim that if the Tariff on Cut Glass
is taken off, it will bo within the reach of every one's purse. This
is true, but the Cut Glass that will be within the reach of every
one will be made in Germany and elseivhere, and not in Wayne

Republican ticket means a Return of Prosperity, a bigger demand
