TUESDAY BVKNING, JULY 3, 1830.
Staad ana Dclirer.
The Republican county committee as
sessed Hen. A. Herr Smith $1,200 as the
candidate for Congress; Themas J.
'Davis $800 as the nominee for district
attorney; Ames II. Mylin, for senator,
$350 ; the five candidates for assembly
from the county, $175 each; the four
candidates for prison inspector and peer
director, $10 each ; county surveyor $5,
and Mr. Demuth, city candidate for
Legislature, $5, with the understanding
that his main assessment should be made
by and paid te the city executive com
mittee for the city campaign raising a
total fund of about $3,275 for the elec
tion of the Republican local nominees in
this county, which the Republican chair
man beasts is geed for 9,000 majority.
The assessments were se excessive, no
doubt, because the chairman and his
friends, who were in a majority en the
committee and the subcommittee, are
net m political sympathy with most
of the candidates who have te pay the
assessments. It is very comfortable te
spend ether people's money and especially
that of your political opponents.
Mr. Smith has hitherto refused te pay
a $1,000 assessment and last year com
pelled the committee te abate its requisi
tion upon him te $750 and te accept that
as his full contribution. The committee
new call upon him te stand and deliver
a much larger amount and threaten te
depose him from the ticket if he re
fuse. Mr. Davis will probably want te knew
about the movement te disbar him be
fore he planks down $800, in addition te
his large expenses in procuring the nom
ination, which Eberly's friends say he
did net get at all.
Before the candidates for the Legisla.
ture pay their sissessincnt they should
carefully read Art. VIII of the consti
tution of Pennsylvania, and the law of
April 18,1874, 1. L., pages 64 and G5. If
after that they are all convinced that it
will require $1,225 te pay the " printing
and travelling expenses," the "dissemin
ation of information te the public," and
the "political meeting, demonstrations
and conventions" necessary te their
election, they may pay their assessment.
Il they are net se convinced as they
cannot ba honestly their payment of
such assessment will render them liable
te imprisonment under the act, te the
IHMialties of jterjury in taking the oath of
office and te ouster from their seats if
they ever get into them.

The conception of General Hancock,
that there would have been a failure te
elect by the people in case Congress failed
te declare whether Tilden or Hayes had
been elected, seems te be founded in
geed sense, and if it had been entertained
and acted upon by the representatives of
our party in Congress, it weidd have af
forded a very simple solution of the
Gordian knot that they found them
selves .e unable te untie. As General
Hancock looked at it, there was no diffi
culty in the situation and a constitu
tional prevision existed for every
contingency. It was the duty of
Congress te declare who was elect
ed president ; if it failed te
perform that duty, no one was declared
elected by the authority specified in the
constitution ; therefore no one was elect
ed, and the prevision made for cases in
which there was no election by the pee peo pee
peeple came into operation. That is geed
logic and excellent sense. If the Demo
cratic representatives had insisted en
Tilden "s election, and the Republican
representatives had persisted in clinging
te Hayes, the result would have been the
election or Tilden by the Heuse te be
president and of Wheeler by the Senate
te be vice president ; a solution
of the dispute which would have been
the one provided by the law and which
must therefore have been acceptable. It
seems strange that this simple way of
treating the matter was net adopted, and
ic is a decided rellcctien upon the geed
sense of our Democratic leaders that it
was net. .Who would have supposed that
a general in the army could teach our
statesman hew te deal properly with such
a grave question efjstatesmanship ? And
yet they all might profitably have sat at
Hancock's feet and taken the lessen
which he was able te give them, they
new see, in their own craft. After this
exhibition of his capacity te understand
and deal with political issues, we are en
titled te feel unlimited confidence in

50,000 DEMOCRATIC MAJORITY.
The state election in Alabama was held
yesterday. The returns as far as received
indicate' a Democratic majority ever the
Republicans and Greenbackers which is
estimated in Montgomery at 50,000 or up
wards. In opposition te the regular Dem
ocratic ticket was one made by a fusion of
Republicans, Greenbackers and Independ
ents. As great interest was felt in local
matters a full vote was brought out. The
Republicans had no state ticket in the field
and were instructed te vote the Greenback
ticket, but they failed te de se iu many lo
calities. Fifty thousand Democratic ma
jerity is a low estimate.
The elections passed off very quietly
throughout the state. Nominations were
made by Republicans in very few counties
and the vote polled was light. Circuit
judges and commonwealth's attorneys
were elected in each of the eighteen judi
cial districts, and Democrats arc elected in
at least fifteen. Circuit clerks, sheriffs,
magistrates and constables were elected in
all the counties and municipal officers in
many cities and towns. Democrats were
elected generally. In Lexington a negre
who voted the Democratic ticket was stab
bed by a Republican negre. The marshal,
in attempting te make an arrest, was as
saulted and struck en the head with a rock.
A general melee ensued, in which two ne ne
geoes were shot and several cut before ar
rests were made.
A TERRIBLE outrage.
Visit by Masked Men en a Beatman's
Mrs. Anna Blanvclt, of Rockaway, N.
J., reached Seuth Easten yesterday and
told a tcrrible story. The facts as given
by the woman herself are these : Blauvclt,
her husband, is a canal boatman and was
en his way te Mauch Chunk for a lead of
coal. His wife, who accompanied him, is
a woman of twenty-six years, of French
descent, medium height, a blonde and
rather attractive. Last night taeir beat
lay at the Lucy Furnace wharf, a stepping
place along the canal bank suitable for ty
ing up ever Sunday. The captain, his
wife and a little boy retired and
about 12 o'clock were awakened by being
rudely dragged out of their bed iu their
cabiu by three men, who had gained en
trance te the beat unknown te the sleepers.
Mr. Blauvclt was ordered te go up en
deck, and, en hesitatiug, a revolver was
placed at his bead and he was forced te
mount the stairs The two remaining
men drew revolvers and threatened te
sheet the woman if she made any noise.
One of them held a revolver te her head
while his companion brutally assaulted
her, and the assault was repeated by all
three of the men. The husband, who was
kept en deck, made several attempts te
possess himself of the revolver and avenge
his insults, but his captors were tee
wary and he was forced te remain
there three hours, during which time
his wife was subjected fe repeated
assaults by the three villains. Fin
ally they left the beat with many threats
and disappeared. When Blauvclt and his
wife reached Seuth Easten the utmost ex
citement prevailed. Mrs. Blauvclt was
able te give sufficient details te make
plain the terribly story. She said she
would be able te identify her assailants
anywhere and knew that they are all boat
men. One of them, she said, was uamed
Michael Little, but the ether two were net
known by name. This afternoon two of the
assailants were arrested at Glenden by

Death of Charles William Fichthorn.

young man of great premise, and pos
sessed musical talent of pessitive excel
lence. While organist of St. Matthew's
Lutheran church, at Reading, he composed
nearly all of his organ voluntaries, which
were marked with a degree of originality
and musical discrimination as te indicate
his worth as a musician. After a short
term of service in that city he repaired te

of the Lutheran church, and retained the
position for a period of ever three years.
He was subsequently organist of St.
Paul's Memerial Reformed curch, at Read
ing, and is the author of a number of
recent popular instrumental compositions.
The disease which brought en his death
was an affection of the lungs, superin
duced by indigestion and debility. On

Au eight year-old daughter, of ''Jehn W?J
Beeth, residing at Ne. 512 Poplar street,
was bitten in the wrist by a deg en the 12th
of June last, and died last evening about
9 o'clock in terrible agony, showing the
most unmistakable symptoms of hydro
phobia. The circumstances of the case arc about
as fellows : On Saturday, June 12th, Mr.
Beeth's little daughter was sent for milk
te Jehn Weaver's, who is a tenant en the
faun of Christian Fcrrick, his house being
nearly opposite Ilershey's weeds, a short
distance southwest of the city. WhiTe
there the little girl approached tee closely
te a deg that was tied in the yard, nndit
sprang at her and bit her rather badly in
the wrist. She was taken te her home and
her wounds were dressed by Docter War
ren. Mr. Weaver called at Beeth's the
same evening, and told the family that
they should be careful with the little girl
as the deg had been behaving strangely for
a day or two previously. On the follow
ing day (Sunday) Mr. Beeth went ever te
Mr. Weaver's te learn the particulars of
the affair, and Mr. Weaver told him that
there seemed te be nothing the matter
with the deg ; that it had eaten its feed
and drank water during the day as usual ;
but that it had during the night broken
loose and run ever te Hershey's where it
had died and was buried. Dr. Warren
having been told that the deg had eaten
and drank as usual, did net cauterize the
wound, which, though somewhat painful,
commenced te heal up satisfactorily, and
the child made no complaint except of ec
casienal slight pain in the wrist
On Saturday the child was taken sick
and en Sunday morning it lay down in the
entry, and when discovered seemed te be
asleep and suffering from a high fever.
Dr. Cox was called and applied the usual
remedies. On Monday the child again
came into the entry, was asked if she
wanted a drink of water and said she did.
On being shown the water she uttered a
terrific shriek, and fell unconscious te the
fleer. She seen recovered consciousness,
talked naturally, but had a wild and rest
less expression cf countenance, and seen
had another fearful paroxysm. It was
found necessary te tie her hands te pre
vent her from hurting herself or ethers.
When free from the paroxysms,
which only occurred at intervals of
less than an hour she was en
tirely rational and evinced a willingness
te take her medicine, but when it was
given her, she would bite at it, shudder
fearfully, and bark like a deg. At one
time she sprang up and ran out te a shed
where there was standing a bucket of
water, when she barked and was attacked
with a violent paroxysm, ending in uncon
sciousness. As the day, were en the par
oxysms because mere frequent and violent,
and from six o'clock last evening until
near nine, when she died, she suffered from
a terrible and contineus paroxysm of the
most agonizing character.
That hers was a clearly defined case of
hydrophobia there is no doubt. As seen
as Dr. Cox ascertained the cause of the
little girl's sufferings, he called in consul
tation Dr. M. L. Herr. Dr. Foremen
also called te see the little sufferer, and we
arc informed that the profession gener
ally take a deep interest in the case as it
is the first that has occurred in Lancaster
within twenty or thirty years past. The
only ether case we have heard of is that of
a daughter of a man named Passmore, who
lived 30 years age en the " common " net
far from where East Chestnut and Ann
streets have since been opened. About
twenty years age there was a similar
case at Mountville, and a few
ethers are known te have taken
place in the county. The casus are se
rare, however, that very few physicians are
called upon in the course of a lifetime.
Dr. Cox describes the suffering of his little
patient as agonizing beyond description.
Jehn W. Beeth, the father of deceased,
is a hard laboring man, the father of
fourteen children eight of whom in
cluding the little girl new dead
he has lest, and six still sur
vive, and have te be cared for from his
scanty wages as a day laborer. We are
net authorized te say that he requires as
sistance in his present trouble, but we
knew the mere mention of his circum
stances will be sufficient notice te the geed
people of Lancaster, te see that he secures
whatever help he may require.
TENT AND TABERNACLE.

Rev. Gable conducted the Monday morn

Wesleyan female college, Wilmington,
Del., preached at 10 a. m. upon the
5th verse, 15th chapter of St. Jehn : "I

Gable conducted the children's services at

of I Timethy: "This is a faithful saying
and worthy of all acceptation, Christ
Jesus came te save sinners, of whom I am
the chief." He was followed with a dis
course by Rev. Gable en the familiar and
powerful text, xiv Psalm, 1st v.: "The
feel hath said in his heart there is no Ged,"
and he powerfully presented the argu
ments of nature, nations, revelation and
conscience against atheism.

What lias Become of Ilini ?
A. T. Seule, proprietor of the Rochester
baseball club, is unable te trace the where
abeuts of Herace B. Phillips, manager of
his nine. The latter left Rochester Satur
day, July 24, with $400 of Seule's money,
with which te pay the players, then at
Springfield, Mass. Mr. Phillips telegraphed
from Buffalo Saturday night thathe had
had treuble with his wife, but would
reach Springfield Tuesday morning. He
did net go, and has net been heard from.
Seule believes Phillips has cither been
robbed or has decamped with the money.
Phillips is a young man formerly of tlr s
city, and is quite well-known here, where
his acquaintances will doubtless be unwil
ling te accept the theory of his disheuesty
until the proof is forthcoming.

The Micnnercoer Picnic.
The picnic of the Lancaster Masnncicher
at Tell's Hain yesterday was a largely
attended and orderly assemblage, compos
ed entirely of members of the association,
their families and some few specially invite 1
guests. Coaches and omnibuses ran te the
grounds continuously all day, and despite
the great crowd present net an unpleasant
incident occurred te mar the enjoyment of
the occasion. Beating, sheeting and ether
harmless amusements constituted the
order of the day, while dancing in the
large room was indulged in by the devotees
of merry Terpsichore ; the enlivening music
being furnished by Tayler's admirable oi ei
chestra. A feature of the occasion also
was a brief address by Alderman J. K.
Barr, in which he referred te the fact that
the association was organized twenty-two
years age, but he saw before him en this
occasion many members who are just as
earnest in their regard for its weal as
tbey were at the date of its incep
tion. The squire concluded by calling en
four of the "old originals," whose famil
iar faces he saw before him for a song, and
the invitation was responded te by Messi s.
Henry Gerhart, Philip Dinkclberg, Charles
Sattler and Peter Letz, who rendered in
fine voice a charming German melody, the
first ever sung by the Ma:nmrjlier, at the
conclusion of which they were roundly ap
plauded. Refreshments, solid and liquid,
were furnished in abundance at very reas
onable prices, and about seven o'clock iu
the evening warning of the approaching
storm suggested the advisability of ad
journing, which being promptly heeded,
no information of any casualty has reached
this office. It is reported, however, in the
cast end that one of our gallant young city
councilmen, in company with an equally
gallant press representative, who had kind
ly leaned their team te a gentleman aud a
couple of lady friends, might have been
seen scudding along the Philadelphia pike
in the midst of a driving rain, and by the
time they reached the welcome shelter of
a friend's reef their Sunday clothes were
pretty well drenched.
Anether Tobacco Heed Raising.
We recently noticed that of 187 persons
at the raising of B. F. Eshleman's tobacco
shed, in East Lampeter tewutship, there
were only 2 Hancock men. A correspond
ent from the Republican county of Ches
ter tells us there was a tobacco shed raised
in Highland township, near Parkesburg,
last Friday, en the farm of Christian Hess,
and of 150 votes present there were only
4 supporters of Garfield. Our correspond
ent adds : " Mere than this, Mr. Hess has
two farms, second te none either in
Lancaster or Chester counties ; he is a
solid Hancock man, as are also his four
sons. ATI are geed farmers and have the
'boss' tobacco in the county. Hess, of
Highland township, Chester county, can
beat East Lampeter raising tobacco, and
taking all things into consideration, can
raise mere Hancock men te the square mile
than East Lampeter can Garfield men."

engineer, who has for some years pat been
