LANCASTER DAILY ENTKLL1UENCER. TUESDAY OCTOBER 26. .1880.
TUESDAY EVENING, OCT. 26, 1880
Hew Geed Men Will Lie.
There is one senator in Congress who
' is noted for his geed sense and the per
sistent way in which he lets' it guide
him : that is Senater Eaten, who made
a speech en the tariff the ether night in
New Yerk, which we publish elsewhere,
lie lias given much attention te this sub
ject and is the author of the bill which
has found se much favor in both politi
cal parties and which has been especial
ly petitioned for by manufacturers. Its
object is te take the tariff question out
of politics by appointing a commission
which shall inquire into the needs of the
country and report te Congress the re
sults of its examination. There was,
until a few weeks age, a general belief
that the question of the tariff was net a
party one, and that still is the honest
conviction of every sensible man ; be
cause there can be no real question, as
Senater Eaten says, that a country with
se great a debt as ours must raise a rev
enue by a tariff en importations, and
there is no question among the large ma
jority of the people that in raising this
revenue the imposts should be se laid as
te protect in a reasonable degree the
manufacturing industries of the country.
Se that there is no political question
in the tariff, neither party being willing
te commit itself te the defense of the
doctrine of free trade, which is impossi
ble of execution at this time and under
the nation's present circumstances; how
ever abstractly right theorists may .prove
it te be.
But in the present political agitation
Republican demagogues have net been
able te keep their hands off the tariff is
sie, since it was se very inviting a ques
tion upon which te misrepresent the
Democratic party. Gov. Fester, of Ohie,
let the secret of this scheme out when he
declared en the day after the election,
Uush"d with victory and wine, that ' the
tariff and business issuer were get up by
Eastern parties for the purpose of a
scare." It worked well in Ohie and
Indiana that the governor was delighted
with it and could net refrain from ex
pressing hims"lf se under the warming
influences of the moment, as lie steed in
the Xeil house at Columbus, Ohie, after
dinner, having among his auditors one of
theedilorsef the Philadelphia I" "nic..whe
was in Ohie taking notes -of the elec
tion. Of course he did net fail t-.- tele
graph te his paper this authoritative
statement as Je hew Ohie was carried by
a deliberate misrepresentation of the
views of the Democratic party en the
tariff mid the declaration that the elec
tion of Hancock meant the closing of
the mills and furnaces. The significance
of Gov. Fester's statement is in the ad
mission that it was a -scare "'of East
ern manufacture and without any real
basK It was simply a lie ; and a lie is a
statement which these who make it knew
te be false. We have had a very remark
able experience ourselves in personal dis
cussion with very reputable gentlemen
who aic Republicans and church mem
bers te beet, who have calmly admitted
that their talk te the people about the
tariff and about business was all ' gam
mon." but they defended its use be
cause it was '"such a geed cam
paign argument." We say this
was ery remarkable, though it is
net wonderful in view of the very
general use of the argument made by the
Republican party. It simply shows that
the paity is rotten from top te bottom,
and that the respectable citizens who be
long te it are very worthily led by Mr.
Garfield, who has achieved a rep
utation for being a geed citizen
in the private walks of life but
who is willing te go te anj depth of
meanness or stretch of crime for his
party. And that is the way perhaps the
most of its members feel. That is the
reason we find geed citizens and geed
Christians net only voting for Garfield,
but complacently using arguments they
knew and admit te ba false te persuade
their neighbors te vote for him.
Thus it comes that Governer Ilawley
of Count eticut. a respectable man wl e
shone at the Centennial in some orna
mental capacity near the top of the heap,
returned from Europe and made a
speech in a Connecticut town in which
js a big sewing machine factory, telling
the workmen that if Hancock was elect,
ed their factory would shut down because
of foreign competition ; when the fact is
that tiiese sewing machines are new
sent te every large city in Europe,
and the factories therefore are net at all
affected by the tariff. Gov. Ilawley, en
the surface, would seem te be a feel as
well as a knave : but in truth we cannot
pronounce him te be anything hut an ex
cellent man and Christian, without con
signing te hell many of our best fellow
citizens of his political persuasion, who
have taken te lying in this campaign
with equal recklessness and zeal.
The Democratic party throughout the
country is feeling the effects of a decided
and general reaction in its favor.
The union of all contending
elements in Xew Yerk, which
Republicans hoped and claimed that
the adverse result in Indiana would
prevent, has inspired the Democratic
organization with singular zeal and con
fidence. It is notable that in many quar
ters where before the. Western elections
it was difficult te aruiieC the Democracy
te efficient organization and close cam
paign work, they are new thoroughly
:ir.-;used te the nt ccssity and te the ex
ercise of just the kind of political ener
gy that is essential te pod their full vote.
What has been seen in this community
is the common report from every section,
that Democratic meetings were never
se well attended, and Democratic organ
ization never se thorough. If, as t he Re
publicans claim, Maine was a godsend te
them in awakening them te their danger
of defeat, ten-fold was the lessen of the
West useful te our people.
As the matter stands new Xew Yerk
will be carried by the Democrats. There
is no reason apparent why the Demo
cratic majority should fall below that of
1 876. Xew Jersey is proportionately one
of the most decided Democratic states
in the country, and there is no reason te
believe that it can be wrenched from its
moerines by any Republican device. The
Republicans profess te be hopeful of
Connecticut. That is Mr. Barnuuvs
state. He does net propose te lese it,
and Xew Hampshire is in excellent
shape and there is every probability of
carrying it. In Maine there Avill net
likely be a slip-back from the September
result, while in California and Xevada
all the. chances favoring the Democrats
have been greatly accelerated during the
In Pennsylvania, hopeful as we have
always believed it te be for Hancock,
there Jias been a very manifest change of
tone in th6 past few weeks. Manufac
turers and corporations who were putting
up notices two weeks age threatening te
cut down the wages of their employees
if they voted for Hancock are new get
ting their Democratic employees te pub
lish cards that they arc net intimidated
and that they propose te vote for Han
cock. The change is geiug en in the right di
rection and is going with an impetus that
cannot be checked.
Chairman- Bakxei, in a letter te
the New Yerk Pest, fairly takes the hide
off of Chairman Jewell in the matter of
these dispatches, clearly showing him te
be guilty of a very foolish lie, in addi
tion te his original offense, in seeking te
explain that the telegrams were sent te
warn the Flerida collector of customs
against Democratic repeaters who were
bsing sent from Xew Yerk. What did
the Democratic parly want with re
peaters in Flerida, where there are no
Republicans te speak of ? Chairman
Jewell is in the ugly fix of charging that
the Seuth is solid for Hancock and that
the Republican party has no chance theie,
and at the same time charging that we
were sending Democratic repeaters there.
As it is admitted en all sides that these
telegrams of Mr. Jewell's referred te
repeaters going te Flerida, it is out of
the question for any one te suppose that
1 they were anything but Republican le-
! pealers. that party alone having any use
' for them.

years sums well-nigh equal te these
lavished in the six preceding centuries, te
rear, in apparent honor of a creed alleged
te be outworn, towers loftier than auy
ether monument bnilded by the hand of
man. " A moment's reflection will de
monstrate that mere aesthetic considera
tion could never have determined a result
se costly and imposing ; that the wish of
the artist and connoisseur would have
availed but little against sectarian jeal
eusies and antipathies; and that if the
work begun under the house of Hohen Hehen
staufen is te-day finished under the house
of Hohenzellern, it is because the cathe
dral of Cologne typifies the dignity, the
continuity, the integrity of the German
empire. The truncated building was for
centuries the emblem of a mutilated
fatherland. The completed edifice is an
outward and visible sign of national whole
ness and cohesion, a concrete and splendid
proof that the dream of the Sabiau em
perors, long deferred but unforgotten, was
tebc at last fulfilled."

Independence is the jewel brightest of
all te the workingman. Te be deprived
of it is te be a slave. When the empleyer
coerces or intimidates his employee he
takes from him his independence, and low
ers him te the condition occupied by the
slave made free by civil strife. The Re
publican party has sought te array capi
tal against labor te draw a line between
rich and peer as prominent as that estab
lished in foreign empires between king
and peasant. Is this right ? Is net this
contrary te all pure American institutions ?
Are net your rights as citizens as dear te
you as as theirs ? When they ask yen te
vote for Garfield have you net as much
right te ask them te -vote for Hancock.
But it you weic te ask of them that how hew
long would you be in their employ ? If

The Campaign Bitterly Contested.
New Yerk Dispatch te the- Times.
The last week of the campaigu opens
with the utmost activity at the national
Demeeracic headquarters. Everyene there
is cheerful beyond expression and all are
bending te their work with mere resolu
tion and vim than has been sccu before in
the" campaign. The fight has been red-het
in New Yerk state, upon which the result
se largely hiuges. Naturally enough when
all are working se busily they have little
time for gossip, hence it is that there is
nothing alarmingly new in the general
situation. The one thing apparent
above all is that new life and
vigor and earnestness have beeu
imparted te the campaign by the Demo
crats. The sober-thinking members of
the national committee who are net given
te speech uuless they have honest cenvic
tiens te express say today that Hancock's
chances have improved very much within
the past four or five days and he is likely
te be elected. They point te the fact that
the roll of Northern states which Han
cock has an even chancs of carrying has
Lbcen swelled very much, new embracing
Maine, New Hampshire, Connecticut,
New Yerk, New Jersey, Indiana, Cal
ifornia, Xcvada and Oregon. Xew Yerk,
Xew Jersey and ene mere arc all that is
necessary te win the battle. One of the
most confident men at hcadquaiters to
night was Samuel J .Randall. In a private
conversation net intended for the public
car he expressed himself as really expect
ing te see General Hancock elected. It is
in such private talks that the Democratic
managers convince visitors of their sincer
ity. The reasons they give are that daily
advices from trusted agents attest that the
tariff question argument has spent its force
and is mero than discounted by Garfield's
Chinese immigration views ; that the peo
ple have become convinced that the
se-called Republican victory in
Indiana was gained by unblush
ing frauds; that Republican bulldozing
by employers is leading upon the party
and making votes for Hancock ; that the
evidences of Republican attempts te colon
ize voter.? in New Yerk citvand in Flerida
and carry elections by fraud aie disgust
ing honest men. These are the newest J
causes of the reaction in favor of Hancock, i
and the Democrats arc verv confident that
thev will elect him. There i.s no brair and
bluster at Democratic headquarters, as
there is with the Republican leaders. The'
Democrats are quietly but earnestly watch-'
ing every sign of the times and are miss-
in nn chances. The verv best snc:ll:ers
in the party are new at work in the state,
and mere than a hundred meetings a night
will be held this week. .The Democrats

There was quite a little excitement en
Third street yesterday ever the "boem''
in the price of Reading shares, which open

sharp fluctuations meanwhile. Various
reasons are given for the sharp advance,
among them being a rumored large demand
from England for anthracite coal a rea
son that was pronounced absured at the
effice of the Reading raihead company
and an agreement between representatives
of American aud English interests for an
j adjustment of the company's troubles.
The general opinion was that the fluctua

Admiral Reynold's Tomb.
Maj. Chas M. Hewell has just erected
ever the remains of Rear Admiral Wra.
Reynolds a beautiful and costly memorial
tomb. R; is a solid block of Quincy granite
perhaps eight feet long, three feet wide
and three feet in height. It is of chaste
design, and se elaborately polished that it
shines like a mirror. On the top of the
tomb is secured a heavy bronzed anchor,
and in the stone is cut the name of the
admiral and the date of his death. The
tomb is a very beautiful ene and of the
finest workmanship, creditable alike te
the distinguished officer in whose honor
it was erected, te the loving relations en
whose order it was procured, and te the
skill aud taste of Majer Hewell by whom
i the work was done.

Tiie local Tobacco 31ari&et.

1 here is very little te be said about our
i local market. Xet mere than 250 cases of
1870 have been sold within the past week,
,- . - .. fra..5 i,nnr- i ,ff .,
Most of the foreign buyers have left the
city, presumably te go home and vote,
but perhaps because holders of the crop
are a little stiff in their views as te the
value of the 1879 leaf. .This stiffness is
caused first by a general rumor that the
flea-bitten Pennsylvania crop of 1880 i.s
curing badly, aud second by a report that
the Connecticut crop of 1880 is no better.
Hew much truth there may be in these
rumors will be ascertained te some extent
when the new crop is taken from the poles
and stripped, and this cannot be done until
a season of wet weather sets in.

for $444.45. This judgment he transferred
te the plaint id, after receiving a piomissery
note for $390. The note was discounted at
the Wayuesburg bank, in Chester county,
and the plaiutilf received something like
$385 after he had paid the discount. He
new brings this suit te recover the balance '
due en the judgment.
The defense was that Sensenig agieed te

arrange the balance with Russcl. Gee.
Russcl was called and he corroborated
Scnsenig in regard te the agreement ; he
also testified that he paid the balance of
the judgement by giving Brubakcr a bull.

stated that the bull given him by Russcl
was in payment for another debt, which
he (Ritssel) owed him, and that the bal

be due him has never been paid.
