LANCASTER DAILY INTELLIGENCER. MONDAY OCTOBER 25, 1830.
MONDAY EVENING. OCT. 25, 1880.
At lust we have found in Edwards
Picrrepent. Grant's attorney general
mid minister te England, a man bold
Mieugh te peel: te show that Garfield
was innocent of perjury in the testimony
lie gave before the Poland cemmiteee in
the Credit Mebilier matter. Mr. Pierre Pierre
jjent examines the evidence in a letter te
the Xew Yerk Sun, starting in with the
following accurate statement of the eatli
und the charge, and admitting that if
Garfield swore te what was net true, no
man ought te vote for him :
On the 14th of January, 1873. Gen. Gar
field, be Pure a committee of Congress,
" I never owned, received, or agreed te
receive any stock of the Credit Mebilier or
of the Union Pacific railroad, nor any div
dends or profits arising from cither of
It is charged that " this was a perjured
statement" It was deliberately made and
in the course of the testimony it was reit
erated wita emphasis. If it was false, no
honest man ought te vote for General Gar
field. We can ask nothing mere from any
Republican than that he shall withheld
his vole from Mr. Garfield if he is satis
fied that that he committed perjury. Mr.
Pierrcpent tries te show from the evidence
that lie did net, and if that is his sincere
belief nothing in this matter stands in the
way of his giving him his vele: and if
his argument satisfies the Republican
voter he can go rejoicing en his way te
the polls. We have believed that no
.s':lf-re:-ecting Republican could go,
with head erect, te deposit his ballet for
Garfield, the evidence against him seem
ing se damning. Mr. Pierrcpent does net
make it seem less se. lie arrives at his
deduction by emitting te consider some
of tiie evidence and by discrediting that
of OakesAmcs. lie recites the testimony
given by Ames in the beginning of the
investigation, when he hoped te be able
te shield the guiltv congressmen, but
clear as he can from the meie
utterances of his subsequent
Vet he finds that Ames swears
that Garfield received the Credit Mebilier
stock which Garfield swore he did net re
ceive, and that te clear Garfield he must
discredit Ames. This he does, alleging
that Ames had an interest in swearing
falsely, since he was threatened with a
suit te make him account for the stock.
This is Mr. Pierrepont's case as he sums
it ui :
If Mr. Anic had net been sued by Mr.
McComb and been threatened by Mr.
Dur.uit with another .suit te make him ac
count for the stock, no such charges would
have been made against Gen. Garfield.
Gen. Gailicld'r. testimony is positive and
Every circumstance confirms its truth,
and there is nothing in the evidence which
shakes it. The report is net evidcnec.uer is
there evidence te sustain the report.
The report savs :
" lie (Garfield) agreed with Mr. Ames
te take ten shares of Credit Mebilier stock,
but did net pay for the same. Mr. Ames
received the eighty per cent, dividend in
bends, and sold them for ninety-seven per
cent., and also received the sixty per cent,
cash dividend, which, together with the
price of the steak and interest, lei t a bal
ance of $32!). This sum was paid ever te
Mr. Garfield by a check 'ii thesergeant-at-arnis."
This is in direct conflict with (Jen. (Jar
field's sworn statement, and it is fairly ar
gued that if the report is accurate, Gen.
Garfield's testimony is false. The report
is signed Iry Judge Poland, chairman, by
Judge McCrarv and by Gen. Ranks, all of
t Iieni Repabicans and men of character
and honor, ami each of them has since
publich announced his fullest confidence
iu the integrity, tiutb. purity, and honor
if Gen. Garfield, thereby admitting the in
accuracy of this part cf the report.
Mr. Pierrepenl gets ever the remarka
bly ugly fact that the committee, with
its three Republican members, Poland,
Banks and McCreary, unanimously re
ported that Garfield had done what he
swore lie had net done, by composedly
stating that Poland and McCreary have
expressed their confidence in Garfield
since his nomination . which is se mani
festly insufficient te efface the effect of
their opinion as judges at the lime of
this inquiry that we may assume that
any R"pub'ii':in voter who will be satis
fied with it is se easily satisfied that it is
net worth while te talk te him.
11 this case rested en Mr. Ames" tes
timony Mr. Pierrcpent would have
done his work by discrediting his evi
dence which he has net done. The mo
tive assigned for Mr. Ames" perjury is
manifestly insufficient. Admitting that,
the amount involved in this case was
enough te tempt te peijury a man of his
greatweallh.il is nevertheless manifest
that his testimony in no way secured it
te him. That showed that the ownership
of the stock was in Garfield ; but that
Garfield had net lifted it; therefore until
claimed by Garfield it enured ie the ben
efit of the company. If it had been is
sued te Ame.5,Ames' testimony deprived
him of it instead of securing it te him.
Mr. Pierrepont's motive vanishes.
But Mr. Ames" testimony is sus
tained, net only by the unanimous report
of the Poland committee and ether tesli tesli
menytaken by il, but it is shown te l:c
true by Garfield's admission te Judge
Black, made before lie testified in
the congressional inquiry, that lie
had received the Credit Mebilier
stocky but had taken it innocently and
without knowing the nature of the com
pany. Mr. Pierrcpent brings in Judge
Black as a witness te prove Garfield's
honesty in his private life, thus:
Last June, when Gen. Garfield was nom
inated, the judge again wrote, saying ; " I
have been Gen. Gai field's devoted friend
for many year. If he would carry the
principles which regulate his private life
into his public conduct he would make the
best chief magiuti.ile v.e ever had.'"
Judge Black U ait excellent witness
and wc are ready te rest the cast: against
Mr. Garfield en his testimony. Mr.
Pierrepont cannot decently refuse te take
the whole of his testimony when he ac
cepts a part : and yet this is just what he
does de. lie net only neglects te call atten
tion te the important " if" in the extract
lie makes from Judge Black's letter, but
lie abstains entirely from noticing the
statement made by the judge that Gar-
field " unquestionably agreed te take the
stock ' and " had net concealed or tried
te conceal the fact, from me." We re
publish elsewfiere judge Black's letter
Replying te the inquiries of tiie Xew
Yerk Sun en this matter ; and
every man who believes in Judge
Black's truthfulness must believe "in
Garfield's perjury ; there is absolutely no
escape from condemning Garfield but
in believing in Judge Black's false
hood, Oakes Ames' perjury and the Po
land committee's imbecility.
Mi:.Gai:field declares that his alleged
letter en the Chinese question, which
Trvth lias circulated, is a forgery. Truth
in return declares it will show it te be
genuine by evidence that would convict
Garfield before any jury. Mr. Garfield
is entitled te be believed until he is
shown te have lied ; but the evidence te
prove this need net te be se overwhelming
in his case as it would be in that of a
man net already shown te have perjured
himself. Who can value his assertion ?

A prominent gentleman from Illinois
says that Senater Trumbull is making one
of the most surprising campaigns in that
state ever witnessed. Chicago will go

votes. The tariff scare docs net affect

our informant, made a speech in reply te
Sherman at Chicago, a few days age, which
almost paralyzed all of Leng Jehn's ar
guments. The Democracy, he says, have
fair hopes of carrying the state. The

ether business te engage in the campaign,
and is making it count every day.
Tin: registry of New Yerk city is new
complete. The total numbers of voters
who have registered their names is 210,974.
Assuming the same proportion between
the total registry and the total vole as
that which it obtained in 1870, and we
have reason te expect that mere than 202,
000 votes will be polled en the 2d of No
vember for the electoral tickets. Conced

mate that has been made by any responsi respensi

Imperialism, office-holding oligarchy, cor

The Democratic party is largely com
posed of the industrial classes and must
therefore represent their interests and
rights. Te-day many of the corporations,
the wealthy manufacturers, the great iron

their power. They threaten te take the
bread out of their mouths, te starve their
wives aud children, unless they vote as em

you permit this tyranny and still claim te

I will net break the rule I have adopt

both in language and sentiment. Until its
publication I never heard pf the existence
of the Employers' Union, of Lynn, Massa
chusetts, nor of such a person as II. L.
Merey. J. A. Gakfield.
Trntn" Will Prove GarHeld a Uar.
In response te the above Truth te-day
says : Truth is accused of forging a letter,
forging a postmark, imagining the exis
tence of a non-existing league, and invent
ing II. L. Merey. We have already done
ad that can be done iu the mature' of the
case te prove that the letter is in the hand
writing of James A. Garfield, except te
fully produce the opinions of competent
witnesses who arc familiar with his hand
writing. That Ave premise te de, and te
accempanyrthc evidence with a variety of
specimens of his handwriting, indisputa
bly attested, for comparison. Xe mere
can be dene iu this direction, because te
witness actually saw the letter written and
the man who originally received it is dead.
But our proof shall be such as would be
amply sufficient in a court of justice te
convict James A. Garfield of having penned
the letter with his own hand ; that the
Employers' Union was an existing organ
ization when the letter was mailed ; that
Henry L. Merey, of Lynn, Mass., was a
living, moving being at the same time.
aud that he was the chief promoter of that
union win uc pieveu se conclusively that
se far as this point is concerned, the wil
ful falsehood of Garfield's support
ers, such as the Xew Yerk Timet, will be
incontestably established. Finally, we
shall prove by indisputable specimens of
Washington postmarks of last winter,
specimens vouched for by the best au
thority, that the postmark upon the enve
lope of Garfield's Chinese cheap labor let
ter is a genuine Washington postmark of
last winter, and that the postmaster of
Washington, when he denied its genuine
ness yesterday, lied for the double-branded
liar who heads the Republican ticket and
whose cause he sought te serve bv the lie.

But te-morrow or by Wednesday at
latest, we shall offer te the country the
proofs we have premised, aud we new pre
dict that from that time forth there will
be no doubt in the minds of honest and in
telligent men that James A. Garfield has
net hesitated te resort te black lies and
foul slanders te save his failing cause and
that iu this criminal aud despicable policy
he has been advised, encouraged and
aided by the party he represents, by its or
gans, and by at least one of its prominent
office-holders, whose falsehood is as wilful
and despicable as that of Garfield himself.

science iu Franklin and Marshall, and
filled it from about 1803 te 1871. He was
a most accomplished scientist, especially
in the department of chemistry, aud his

The largest, most brilliant and most en
thusiastic city parade given in Lancaster
during the present campaign took place en
Saturday evening, and furnished the most
inspiring assurance that the great Deme-T
cratic army is unbroken, and that it is
marching forward te a glorious victory.
Early in the evening the note of prepara
tion was heard in all sections of the city ;
men with uniforms and torches wera
hurrying te their several rendezvous ; drum
corps and bands were heard drumming
and blowing in various directions ; crowds
et men, women and children gathered, in
Centre square and the streets adjacent;
Chief Marshal Fordney and his staff in
full uniform and mounted en gaily ca
parisoned horses, galloped hither and
thither te give detailed instructions te the
captains of clubs; the Veteran head
quarters in Centre square were crowded
with Union soldiers both Democrats and
Republicans but all for Hancock. They
were te take the head of the column, and
under the lead of Cel. McGovern aud his
staff were first in motion and at half-past
7 o'clock took up their position en North
Duke street, the right resting en East
King. The ether organizatienswere seen
in the places assigned them and ready for
The moment the court house clock
struck 8, Sergeant Edw. Bookmyer,
mounted, sounded the advance with the
same bugle he carried en the field of
Gettysburg, and amid loud huzzas from a
thousand threats, the column moved ever
the route previously designated in the fol
lowing order :

The Veterans made a very handsome ap
pearance, and although the weight of
years is beginning te tell en some of them
they moved with the same soldierly tread
that marked their advance at Chaplin
Hills, Chickamauga, Gettysburg and ether
fields whereon they wen their honors. All
the companies carried new and beautiful
flags presented them by their lady friends.
Loud cheers greeted them all along the
line of march.
Following the Veterans, and headed by
the Quarry ville band, came the "Iren
AVbrker's club of Lancaster," under com
mand of A. J. Stcinman, esq., president of
Pcnn iron works. They numbered 150
men, many of them in uniform and all
armed with hammers, tongs, screws, belts,
bars and ether implements and emblems
of their trade. They bore in their ranks a
large number of flags, banners, and trans
parencies with appropriate inscriptions,
some of which were, " We arc opposed te
Chinese labor' "Garfield a frce trader,"
"Hancock a native of Pennsylvania, a
soldier and statesman," "The Iron
workers solid for the Eaten tariff bill "
"Vanderbilt buys his railroad iron in
England and supports Garfield."
Next came the Hancock Legien and
persons in citizens' dress under command
of Philip Bernard! They numbered 103
men and presented a solid appearance,
there being in their ranks a large number
of the most substantial and prominent
men in Lancaster.
The "Franklin and Marshall college
club " numbered 40 men very prettily uni
formed. Gee. C. Stell was their captain.
Four mounted marshals.

and 10 unequipped in wagon. A number

Three mounted marshals.
Eighth ward Hancock and English
battalion, Majer Fred. Shread ; 223 men,
200 of whom were fully equipped. At the
head of the club marched Valen
tine Shcid in full continental uni
form and carrying a banner. Behind him
was borne aloft a handsomely framed pic
ture of Hancock. The club carried a
number of campaign banners and a beau
tiful new flag presented te them by the
Democratic ladies of the ward just before
they started for the parade. Iu such large
numbers did the "Old Eighth" turn out
that the club was divided into three sec
tions and an additional drum corps placed
at the head of the second section.
In rear of the Eighth ward the em
ployees of Jehn W. Lewell's horse cellar
manufactory te the number of 15 turned
out in a body. They bore banners en
which were inscribed, "We don't stuff
ballet-boxes ; we stuff herse cellars."
"Workmen net slaves," " Free mechanics
and a free vote our motto." "Ne China
men, Garfield & Ce. for us" This delega
tion carried their polished stuffing reds
that glistened like muskets. They were

U. S. veteran, and made a soldierly ap
pearance. Four mounted marshals.

Careful counts at" different points along
the line and by different persons made the

near the end of the parade. Had it net
been for the muddy streets and the dis

would no doubt have been several hun
dred mere men in line Even under the
unfavorable conditiei.s named, the parade
was much larger than the Republican
parade of Thursday evening, although
they had delegations present from Yerk
and Dauphin counties and fiem many
townships iu Lancaster county, while the
Democratic parade was composed entirely
of Lancaster men with the exception of a
small delegation from Strasbnrg.
Along the entire route the precession
was greeted by enthusiastic crowds and
many of the residences wcre brilliantly il
luminated, the ornamentation consisting
i cnicuy ei nags, banners, Chinese lanterns
I and portraits or the candidates. Whilst
i there was no general display of fireworks,
I a number of patriotically disposed citizens
I greeted the arrival of the pageant with
I rockets, Reman candles anil colored
lights, and the precession looked magnifi
cent as it wound around the monument
in Centre :;quarc bathed in a flood of
lime light of ever-changing hue that was
kept burning upon the reef of the Intel Intel
lieencek building, making plainly visible
for a great distance the flag that floated
proudly in the high wind. It will net be
attempted te specify the decorations ; most
of them were in admirable taste,attractive
and patriotic, and constantly spurred the
paradcrs te the most enthusiastic applause,
which was invariably responded te by the
waving of handkerchiefs and chcers from
ladies and ethers standing iu the door
ways of the residences thus complimented.
At several points along the line drunken,
and indiscreet Republicans and silly
women and boys taunted the men in line
and heaped upon them insulting epithets,
" damned rebels, "' " traitors "and " cop-
pcrheads" being the favorite phrases. At
Water and West King streets tiie women
denounced the Union Veterans as rebels
and traitors, and at West King and Mul
berry rotten eggs were thrown into the
ranks, but did net strike any of the men.
The only serious interference occurred in
East Kingstrect just before the parade was
dismissed. A volley of brick-bats and
stones were thrown from Christian street
near the Exchange hotel, and one of the
men of the Americas club was struck in
the side with a brick. About the same
time two drunken negrees iu front of the
Yeung Men's Republican club room wem
yelling for Garfield and using the most in
sulting language te the men in line, and it
is said that ene of the negrees assaulted a
member of the Junier club of the Seventh
ward. There was a rush from the line
after these disturbers of the peace and for
a moment it was fcard there would be trou
ble Colonel Fordey and his staff, who
were in Centre Square, hurried te the scene
and, aided by the company commanders,
soeu succeeded in resteriug order. This
outrage in front of the Yeung Men's club
room is the mere unjustifiable as the Dem
ocratic clubs in line wcic ordered te salute
the Republicans by bringing their torches
te a carry as they passed the Republican
Three patriotic ladies were waving flags
and cheering the members of the Fiftli
ward club as they passed the corner of
3Iary and West King streets en Saturday
night, when an unpatriotic Republican
lady (?) ran up, snatched the flag from the
bauds of one of the trio, tore it from the
staff and trampled it under her feet. The
lady thus grossly insulted was very old ;
had she been physically robust, or had the
in-.ult been offered cither of the ether
ladies, there might have been a regular
picnic, and considerable hair pulling
around that corner.
At the close of the parade, Satin day
evening the Iren-works club marched te
Mamnercher hall where they entertained
the president and officers of the club.
Speeches were made by A. J. Stcinman,
esq., and J. L. Stcinmctz, esq., and a very
pleasant time was had.
The 5th ward club were haudseuily en
tertained by their president, Mr. Peter
