Why They qalt It.
It is net much wonder that old-time
Republicans throughout the country
the men who revere the memories of
Sumner and Chase and Seward and
Greeley, and wliu prefer te fellow Trum
bull rather than Legan, Curtin before
Cameren and Charles Francis Adams
rather than Conkling touch elbows new
with the supporters of Hancock. Fer it
will be remembered that the pretexts
upon which the Republican party first
gained power have been most shame
fully abandoned by it, and the very prin
ciples which it espoused iu 1860 arc these
which it new repudiates. A recogni
tion of the just rights of local
self-government and the purification of
the civil service were cardinal points in
the Republican national platform of
1860 ; and in order that there may be no
mistake about this we quote the fourth
plank of the platform adopted by the
first convention which nominated Lin
coln. It runs thus :
4. That the maiuteuaucc inviolate of the
rights of the states, and especially of the
right of each state te order and control its
own domestic institutions according te its
own judgment exclusively, is essential te
that balance of powers en which
the perfection and endurance of
our political fabric depends ; and
we denounce the lawless invasion by
armed force of the soil of any state or ter
ritory, no matter under what pretext, as
among the gravest of crimes.
Where can be found better Democratic
doctrine than this ? Where is there an
example of greater political aberration
than in the present attitude of the Re
publican party toward this principle V
Again this same convention declared :
6. That the people justly view with
alarm the reckless extravagance which
pervades every department of the federal
government; that a return te rigid econ
omy and accountability is indispensable te
arrest the systematic plunder of the pub
lie treasury by favored partisans ; while
the recent startling developments of frauds
a.nd corruptions at the federal metropolis,
show that an entire change of administra
tion is imperatively demanded.
It will be seen that the claim was made
that frauds in the national administra
tion justified an ' entire change." But
what were the " startling develepements"
of that day in comparison with these of
the past few years? Is it any wonder
that Republicans of 18S0, who believe in
the principles they then proclaimed, who
were patriots, for the preservation of the
government in its integrity and all the
just rights of the states, are new against
the party which favors the centralization
of power se that it may continue te be
abused te keep the party in power V
A I'KCULIAK lew of the "business
men" of Lancaster have geed ground
te fear that their business interests would
be imperilled by Democratic success.
Fer instance, that great business man,
Dr. J. P. Wickersham, state superinten
dent of public instruction, who devotes
half his time te making partisan speeches
and the ether half te eulogizing himself,
would be irretrievably ruined by the
election of a Democratic governor. The
business in which he takes greatest de
lightsalary and incidentals would
cease; and think of the ether hearts that
would ache ! the deputies, and clerks,
and janitors !
Then there is our geed friend James II.
Marshall, ' which is postmaster," what
will become of his business if Hancock
be elected? It won't be worth much !
Ancl Bill Decn and the ether patriots
who manipulate the mail pouches!
What of them? Alas. the places that
knew them shall knew them no mere
And the internal revenue etlice with
Collector Wiley and Deputy Eber
man, and the gallant Colonel Markley, a
soldier in peace and a statesman in war,
and the gay Captain Stauffer,
whose versatility of talent fits
him for any " business" te which a geed
salary and liberal fees are attached and
the host of lesser lights in the revenu
department what will become of there
" business" when the here of Gettys
burg comes ruthlessly en and upsets the
magnificent system of civil service reform
inaugurated by Hayes and upheld by
Longstreet, Mesby and Key ! It will van
ish like the airy fabric of a vision ; it
will go where the woodbine twineth.
Yes; there is cause for alarm among
these " business men," and ethers of
like character throughout the country,
and it is wise of them sounding forth
the Macedonian cry " come up and help
ns save business."
The Republican head of the-interior
department gives te the public, ihe re
sults of that department's investigation
into the alleged census fraudsm Seuth
Carolina. The result of the investigation
has been te discover only that the census
was taken just as fairly there as here,
and that the apparently enormous in
crease of population is due te the fraud
ulent and careless manner in which the
Republican carpet-bag marshals had
taken the census of 1870. Already then
it was calculated that there were only
" four mere years, of geed stealing" in
that state, and the carpet-bag deputies
cut down the census te rob the Demo
cratic party of their fair representation.
The lie that the census was unduly
swelled has been repeated in the Repub
lican press and by their stump orators of
that party, especially Conkling. They
get their answer and.their quietus from
an administration of their own part. It
will be interesting te see hew they will
all dodge any retraction of their false
One of the Philadelphia white lead
manufacturers pasted up a notice that if
Hancock were elected he would reduce
his laborers wages te GO cents a day.
That sort of bulldozing is making
votes every day for Hancock. When a
party which has been for years harping
en intimidation at the Seuth and obstruc
tion of the franchise shows its teeth te
Northern workmen se plainly as this
they need net expect that it will net be
resented. Such an announcement as the
mbeve is the device of a scoundrel for
whom people would have much mere re
spect if he would go into the political
shambles and buy voles for Garfield like
the -Heg' drovers and Bull-ringers, who
run Lancaster county Republicanism
buyjajtd sell its voters at' the primaries.
Sexateb Eatejt, representing nearly
all the mill owners of "Sew England and
en their petition, introduced a bill pro
viding for a commission of experts te
draft a comprehensive tariff bill, ar
range its details and te take this question
out of our national partisan politics and
settle it en business principles. It is a
most excellent practical measure. It re
ceived the vote of every senator Dem
ocrat and Republican and is the first
bill en the speaker's table te be taken up
iu December, and will undoubtedly pass
the Heuse by an almost unanimous vote.
In the face of this Senater Eaten is en
tirely justified in denouncing as " knav
ish" the conduct of these who assert that
the Democracy are advocating any policy
or likely te adept any prejudicial te
American industries. They have been in
power in Congress and the result is
that' industries languishing under
a Republican Congress have re
vived ; and if this occurred under
a Democratic Heuse and Senate what is
te effect a change when a Pennsylvania
Democrat becomes president? Surely
Pennsylvania interests are safer under
him than under the Cobden free trade
league's candidate and the inspiration of
men like Grew, who in Congress de
neunced the " odious '" protection given
te the " rolling mill and cotton factory."

The Intelligencer's earnest depreca
tien of the local attempts te introduce par
tisau views into the purely business rcla
tiens of our every day life " and " te influ
ence public sentiment against business in
terests' for political reasons, seems te
meet with the very general approbation of
the "business men " of the community, as
is evidenced by the recent increase of 100
copies in the large daily sales of the In
telligencer ever the counter and au
average daily increase of a dozen subscrib-
crs during the week.
Theke is far from happiness iu the Re
publican camp. The capture of Garfield
and the conduct of the campaign by the
Grant men is admitted by the anti-Grant
Republicans. Scliurz is one of the deeply
disgusted. Sherman doesn't care whether
Garfield is elected or net. He won't shed
any tears if he is net. Blaine and his
friends are working without heart. They
recognize the fact of Garfield's surrender
te the Grant gaug ; and while tliey will
keep up appearances and de the best cam
paigu work they can, none of their secret
influences will be used in Garfield's be
half. The worst sold man, however, of
the whole let is Bill Chandler. The Eng
lish language is net capable of expressing

historian, will probably head the list of

Dax Gardner, the circus clown, and
father-in-law of the late famous actor,
Edwin Adams, died of paralysis at At
lantic city en Friday. He was Ci years
old, the senior of the clowns and began
stage life as a comic songster.
General Hancock says that he has had
only one application for office as yet, and
that was from a man who wished te go as
minister te Cerca. He had understood
that every white man, en landing there,
had his head taken, and he desired the op
eration performed en himself.
Colonel Rebert P. Deciiekt, Demo
cratic candidate for auditor gcucral,
spoke in Hollidaysburg en Saturday night,

duced him te his, friends, and afterward
entertained him at his residence.

The Chicago Tribune printed a para-
graph stating that Alexander Mitchell
the prominent banker of Milwaukee, and
Marshal Field, of Chicago, are reported as

Mitchell telegraphed the Tribune as fol fel

stating I am going te vote for Garfield, is
entirely without foundation. 1 shall take
great pleasure in casting my vote for Han

"At the business meeting here last night
Judge Galbraith, of the Erie car works
and the Burdctt organ company ; Orange
Neble, of the Neble & Hall beilei works ;
Jehn H. Bliss,pf the Erie City iron works,
and a large number el business men,
mechanics and laborers of the city were
present at the Republican headquarters
and ready te discuss the business
issues. After considerable 'confusion
a pretended chairman of the meeting
declared the same adjourned, the
business men, mechanics aud laboring
men then proceeded te Scott's hall and
elected J. H. Bliss, of the Erie City iron

Political Discussion Leading te ?.lttrder
Charges hiiiI Ceuutcrciiurgcs.
Political excitement has become intense
in Indiana aud culminated en Saturday iu
two serious affrays at Shclbyville and one
at Evansville. It is diflicut te get the ical
facts, as se much political bias exists that
the stories of the occurrences differ widely.
At Shelbyvillc the Rcpublicans'and Grccn
backcrs were both holding meetings. The
former was addressed by Gen. Ben Har
rison and the latter by Dr. De. La Matyr.
In the afternoon a number of lights took
place in saloons between Republiaus and
Democrats. At one of them Sheriff Me Me
Cerkle -interfered, and was leading away
Ed. Kennedy, a young man who was prin
cipal in one of the fights, when a second
disturbance arose, in which several shots
were fired, no of which struck Sheriff Mc
Cerklc in the breast and he died. Kenne
dy was accused of firing the fatal shot.
McCorkle being ;i Democrat and Kennedy
a Republican the most bitter feeling is
aroused, and parties arc cut seeking Ken
nedy, who will doubtless be lynched if
found. Deputy Sheriff Addison Lee was
badly bruised in the course of the affray.
In Evansville Edward Reuse, a river
pilot, and Oscar Shorter, a colored man,
had a sheeting affray last night, in which
both were wounded, Reuse in the breast
and Shorter in the head. It is said Reuse
began the quarrel and fired twice at Shor
ter before the latter drew his pistol. Shor
ter then fired twice at Reuse, hitting him
in the breast and also badly wounding
Themas Rewdcn, one of Reuse's friends.
Shorter went te jail and gave himself up.
He was followed by a mob ami yesterday
was secretly removed te avoid lynching.

The following dispatch from Reading
te the New Yerk Sun relates te a Re
formed clergyman of middle age well well
kuewn in this city. Rev. Shultz some
tcu years age resided here for quite a
period, during which he frequently attended
the exercises of F. & M. college, his alma
mater, though at that time he showed
evidences of "queerness" threatening te
break out into some such manifestations
us are described herein :
There was great excitement iu this city
(Reading) this (Saturday) evening when
it was learned that the Rev. James A.
Shultz, a well-known young minister of
the Ketermeu church, had been picked up
iu the streets by the police after he had
received a severe beating in a fight en the
leading thoroughfare of the city. His
identity was at first unknown. His en
counter was with several roughs and fish
ermen. At the police station it was found
that the man had been fearfully cut en the
head. He was placed in a cell as a com
men offender, but shortly afterward it was
icarncu mat tuc pnsener was a minister,
who te-day aud yesterday has shown man
ifestatiens of insanity.
It appears that Mr. Shultz yesterday
preached the sermon at the funeral of a
young lady. The funeral took place in St.
Paul's Reformed church, Reading. Repert
says that Mr. Shultz held the young lady
in very high estimation, and that he was
warmly attached te her. Her 'dying re
quest was that he should preach at her
funeral. The Rev. Dr. Bausman, the
regular pastor of the church, occupied the
pulpit also duriug the funeral. Mr. Shultz
made some very strange remarks during his
discourse. He speke of his associations
among ladies, and his various acquain
tances, bringing in allusions very foreign
te a funeral discourse. Dr. Bausman in
terrupted the young minister, and the ser
men was speedily closed.
The Rev. Mr. Shultz then went te his
beaiding house aud behaved like a person
out of his mind. He made all sorts of re
el ienleus requests, piled the fleer of his
study high with books, aud requested his
friends te make nrcneratiens for the com
ing of seven ministers. This evening he ran
out of the house, and coming down town,
get into an altercation with a number of
roughs who did net knew him. He was
very belligerent, and was seen kuecked in
to the gutter by a fisherman. The minis
ter was severely beaten, aud among ether
injuries, received a blew en the head from
After his identity was established at the
police station Mr. Shultz was carried
home. His rooms were found te be in
terrible disorder. He had smashed all the
furniture, pictures, ornaments and ether
decorations. His watch, eyeglasses and
slippers were found among he debris.
Moreover, he had played havoc throughout
the entire house during the absence of the
At a late hour te-night he was still un
conscious from the effects of the blew he
received en the head from the billy in the
hands of etic of the men he attacked en
the street. It is learned that during his
discourse at the funeral he alluded te sev
eral carriage drives he had had with sev
eral lady friends. The assembled mourn
ers were shocked, and a number arose and
went out. Finally his rambling discourse
was stepped. Mrs. Gchman, with whom
Mr. Shultz bearded, says that when she
came home and found the minister iu his
frenzy he chased her aud a neighbor, a
woman, quite a distance, and struck at her
with a stick, lie then ran back, and meet
ing a man en the sidewalk, the minister
knocked him clean iute the gutter. Mr.
Shultz attacked a number of inoffensive
people, battering them considerably. Fi
nally he encountered the gang of roughs,
who treated him as said. At a late hour
te-night he was net expected te recover.
This recalls a similar occurrence in which
a clergyman was concerned. In Laurin
burg, X. C, en the 6th inst., Miss Alice
Skirr, one of the beauties of the place
became a raving .maniac en account of the
action of her' lever, a young clergyman,
the Rev. JehifRattcrling. He recently
determined te go te China as a missionary.
She refused te go with him, and when he
announced his intention te go without her
she became insane.

On Saturday evening, the Dili inst., the
Republicans held a meeting at Green Tree.
The various clubs met iu this village te
form a precession, aud were marshaled
areuud by the Paradise band and county
Committeeman Jehn Keen, of Bart. The
crown was rather a motley one, composed
of Democrats, boys, and an occasional
32'J-er. After the De Gelycr pavement
and Credit Mebilicr admirers had passed,
the Hancock and English club of
Bart formed for parade te their place
of meeting, Nine Points, and seen
strung out a line line composed of
something ever 120 torches. Part
of Sadsbury clubs formed the pro pre
cession aud the whole moved in geed order
out of the village, aud past the Grecu Tree
within 25 feet of the stand erected for the
Republican speakers. Our march was
through a gauntlet of Republicans at this
point and our cars were greeted with many
curses and jeers, but our bevs were tee
geed humored te notice insults and moved
quietly ou while the Paradise band played
the tune they have been for sometime
practicing for the Republicans after Nev.
2. The Dead March when the last Han
cock torch had passed the stand, the De
Golyer contractors, gave three cheers for
Garfield, which was responded te by the
Hancock club with an energy that bodes
no geed te the $329 borrowers, in old Bart.
The roll was opened at the Points and
increased from 75 te 125. all voters. The
next club meeting will be in Georgetown
en Saturday, the lGth. After the club
business was transacted the meeting was
addressed by J. D. Harrar, of Sadsbury ;
J. M. Walker, esq., of Lancaster, and a
short and meaning speech by Jehn W.
Ruttcr, of Sadsbury. The success of the
effort en the part of the Hancock men te
erganize a club in Republican Bart, has
been se unprecedented that we may with
some certainty predict almost a total anni
hilation of the Republicans' former ma
jority. Democrats here mean business en
election day, and when Bart Democrats
put forth their effort something has te go
That is, the Republican majority has te
go by the beard or break all tesniash ; aud
the sound of a Hancock cheer from the
threats of 125 voters in line gives back an
echo that sounds very much like " smash"
te the opposition. Just tell a Republican
in this township that the Bart Hancock
club is going te meet for parade and his
countcnance falls from 329 te 0 in short

Hank Wkese Charters Hear Date or
the Last Century.
One of the Sunday papers of New Yerk
has the following obituary notice of the
late deceased brother of A. J. and H. W.
Harberger, of this city:
Jehn S. Harberger, president of the
Manhattan company bank, 40 Wall street,
died at his country residence, at Plainfield
N.-J., Saturday morning. His illness was
of short duration. He left the bank for
the List time a week age, Thursday, suffer
ing from a cold, which he thought he had
contracted while crossing the ferry. Ma
larial fever developed and proved fatal.
Mr. Harberger was a native of Philadel
phia, and was sixty-one years of age. He
came te this city when a young man, and
began his career in Wall street as a clerk
in the United States bank: Among his
fellow clerks in that bank were James M.
Morrison, who resigned the presidency of
the Manhattan company a year age ; Henry
F. Vail, president of the Bank of Com
merce, and C. W. Duer, formerly presi
dent of the Bank of the State of
New Yerk. Mr. Harberger remained
in the United States bank until
its affairs were wound up, and in
1842 accepted a position in the Manhattan
company, which was offered him by his
former fellow clerk, Mr. Morrison, who
was then cashier of the bank. His first
position was that of assistant transfer
clerk. In 1857 he was made assistant
cashier, and in 1860 was promoted te be
cashier, the position having been made va
cant by the death of Caleb O. Halsted.
After discharging the duties of that office
for nineteen years he was elected president
a year age the first of the present mouth.
Mr. Morrison, whose health bad become
seriously impaired, resigned from that
A gentleman who has been in the .em
ploy of the bank for thirty years said that
he never knew Mr. Harberger te lese his
temper or speak harshly te any of his
assistants, even under the most trying cir
cumstances: Mr. Harberger leaves a wife,
two daughter and a son. The bank of
which he was president is the second eldest
in the city, and one of two the charters of
which bear date of the last century.
A PERILOUS SITUATION.
A Herse Kuns
a Saleen Glass
Graybill Bickhart drove into the city
from Lititz, this morning, with a fine gray
horse hitched te a buggy. As he went te
.turn from East Chestnut street into North
Queen an engine scared the herse and he
dashed forward, his driver almost losing
control of him. Bickhart held en and the
herse plunged down street until he was al
most beyond his driver's power te stay his
flight. The scraping of the buggy wheel?
en the railroad track further affrighted
him, and when opposite Fred. Waltz's
McGraun house, partly te step him and in
part te avoid collision with a vehicle
standing there, Bickhart pulled him in
toward the curb. The herse breke for the
saloon deer, crashed out the windows en
either side of the double deer and struck
the fleer with his front feet, breaking
quite a hole in the fleer, through which
went one of bis legs, badly skinning it.
Beyond this and the kicking off of the
dasher and a slight "barking" of Mr.
Brickhart's finger, no serious damage was
done. A large crowd gathered and much
excitement ensued ever the novel specta
cle of a herse and buggy plunging into a
bar-room. As Mr. Waltz does net famish
" entertainment for man and beast," the
horse was promptly taken out.

A two-story double frame dsfaUssw
house en the southeast corner e&jmsi
street and Marien alley, owned by Gerge
Geoble, took fire from the burning factory
and was se badly injured that it will have
te be tern down. The heuse was occupied
by Frank Dennelly and Geerge W. Sny
der and their families. .Most of the furni
ture was saved, in a damaged condition,
and carried te places of safety. We learn
that they had no insurance en their furni
ture. "These tenants have had a rather
rough experience. Last spring, en the
very day -Mr. Snyder moved into the
house, a frame building adjoining was set
en fire aud burned down, and the back
building of his residence was considerably
damaged. Mr. Gecble has an insurance
of $500 in the Delaware Mutual, of which
Jehn Zimmerman is agent, and which will
move than cover the less.
The cellar of a heuse a few doers south
of the fire was flooded by the bursting of
a section of hose, that poured a stream of
water directly through the grate in the
front wall. The damage was net heavy.
The fire was of course caused by incen
diarism, there having been no ene connect
ed with the works iu the building during
the day. Within a short time past half a
dozen frame buildings in this neighbor
hood have been set ou lire and destroyed.
The firemen were promptly en the
ground and did geed work in preventing
the spread of the flames te adjacent prep-,
Several former attempts have been made
te burn the rash factory. About two years
age a pane of glass was broken from ene
of the windows, and a ball of cotton waste
saturated with coal oil was thrown into
the building, but the waste burned out
without setting fire te the building.
Seme months age a keg, filled with
shavings saturated with coal oil, was found
secreted in the building. The keg was re
moved before the incendiary had an op
portunity of applying the match.
During the fire some ene took $10 in
money from a bureau belonging te Geerge

The Democratic Ilcjra Parade.
On Saturday evening the juvenile Dem
ocrats of the city, numbering iu all about
six hundred, assembled together in Centre
Square, which bore quite an animated ap
pearance ; the torches lighting up the scene
with lurid flame, drums beating with mar
tial tone and handsomely equipped young
sters hurrying hither and thither te take
their places in the column, which moved
with orderly precision about half past
seven. Many of the clubs were regularly-
organized and carried transparen
cies bristling with patriotic in
scriptions that declared the firm adhesion'
of the little chaps te the Democratic doc
trines of their sires. The paraders all car
ried teichcs, and the greater portion of
them were fully equipped, the Seventh
ward lads looking especially handsome in
their neat uniform. The parade visited
every ward in the city, and all along the
route the boys, whose ages ranged from
six years te sixteen, were enthusiastically
welcomed. There was a modest display of
fireworks from the ranks, aud at many
points the arrival of the parade was greet
ed witii haudsome illumination, the boys
acknowledging the compliment by vocifer
ous cheers. The boys are growing up in
the way thev should ire. and there is no
danger of their departing from it when
they shall have arrived at man's estate.
