, At Alton, MeKean Co., Pa., Thurs
day. June 8, 1S82, the subject of this
Tiot ice breathed his last at the curly
ugo of 31 years, 11 months, and lOdnys.
Death ut any time isi a most unwel
come guest, anil hls work .is the Cause
of woe and heart aches. And even as
we follow the aged to their last place,
in voluntarily we regret that the. end
v of life is so soon. But- In the case of a
young man, bright with the promise
of the strength of years, in full physical
and mental vigor, as was tlie deceased,
the regret is many fold, for it seems
that some hideous night-mare has
pV'&scssed us, and that the stem reality
is nothing but ft dream. Becoming
heated after a (l.ihing trip as he hurried
to catch a train, which lie missed, he
snt down and wes seized with a chill.
On his return to his home at Alton he
was compelled togo to bed, and In three
weeks died having been out but once
from the date of his first illness, and
then to go to tlie drug store for some
medicine for a woman, who was very
low and who died in a day or so there
The remains were brought to Ridg
way on Friday, and ou Saturday
morning, after the beautiful And im
pressive services of the Episcopalian
church, at the residence of Dr. C. It.
Karlcy, father of the deceased, they
were followed by a large concourse of
people to the new cemetery, where
after appropriate services tlie last that
waa mortal of our friend of earlier yeara
was deposited in tho Eulley family

The performance as ft whole was ex
cellent. There are, however, a few
parties whom we will notice ns par
ticularly deserving oi special mention.
In the dialogue, "Testing Her
Scholars'" Miss Minnie Miles and
Miss Minnie Tcrwilliger did finely
tklug their purls in an admirable
Tim song "Cows arc in the Corn,"
by little Johnnie Gatcheil was well
rendered by the little fellow as the
audience by their generous applause
Tho charcoal concert recitation was
presented in an excellent manner und
the little misses did themselves great
Little Bertha Barrett in "What
Grandma Thiuk" was certainly one
of the hits of the evtiilug's entertain
ment. So composed and perfectly
natural was the little miss, never oiice
faltering or appearing the least con
fused, never once forgetting her lines,
and never once putting in the. wrong
gesture, her pcrformunco was unique
As Johnnie McManus appeared tie
fore tlie footlights thii little favorite
received encore on encore, Bnd at tho
conclusion of "Tom my, Maiiu Room
ibr Your Attntle," tlie audience cla
morously culled for ills reappearance,
rind would not be comforted until the
little fellow appeared and sang "The
Widow Dunn," to the delight of all
concerned. Johnnie is a decided suc
cess and no buck talk ubout it.
Miss Clarice LSardwell recited in a
highly satlffnctbry manner Neigh
bors." The young lady did herself
ftrcat credit an'! may be said to have
made undoubtedly one of the yery
best efforts of the evening, ts'lie was
perfectly at ease, had her piece well
committed, und received the applause
which her excellent Mescntution so
richly merited. Miss Clarice is en
titled to a very large tdiee of the cuke.
Otherwise the entertainment was
decidedly interesting and at times
Tho orchestra, led by Doctor Wil
lliiins was decidedly fine, and was u
pleasant feature of tlie occasion.

This, tlie lust item on tlie pro
gramme was also one of the best, if
not tlm best feature of the entertain
ment. Several new evolutions were
introduce .1, c.-i forming triangle, fours
in circle, and the platoon moveuieuts.
A very neat scene was tho movement
by platoons to the sides and centre of
the stage where they charged bayonets,
and went through the movements of
load, ready, aim, Hre.
Miss Florence Osterhout, the accom
plished Captain of tho battalion, wore
in addition to the regular uniform,
an army officer's cap with heavy
plume- She curried in her hand a
heavy peacock feather duster, her
cross-belt, girdle and apron were
trimmed with gold, and on iter shoul
ders a massive pair of epaulets. In
stead of remaining stationary ut one
side of th'o Btugo, as at tho first presen
tation of tho broom drill, she marched
at the head and by the flank of lie
company as occasion required, ' which
was a great Improvement. Miss Oster
hout has perfect mastery of the com
mands and gives them in a clear, ring
leg tone of voice. The Broom Battal
ion may Indeed well be proud of their
accomplished and worthy Captain.
The dress of the battalion was as at
tlie previous performance, with tlie
addition of the dust pan, which was
painted red and lettered "R. B. B."
However, as many may not have seen
the former description we will repeat
The members wore white dresses
with jaunty dusting caps of red stlesiu
and red silesia cross-belts from right
shoulder to left side. The wide girdle
and apron also of ret silesia with the
addition of tiie dust-pan fastened at
tlie left rear side completed the uni
form. Tlie dust-pans were marked,
"R. B. B." which being translated
means Bidgway Broom Bitttallou.
The caps, cross-belts, and girdles were
pinked on (lie edges. The brooms
were trimmed with a wide band of
red silesia urouud the sweep and . with
two bows of the name materiul ou the
handle, one at four inches from the
brush or sweep and tlie other four
inches' from the end of the stick.' The
brooms were carried with thesweep up.
As the Broom Battalion moved
across tlie stugo Irl Column of fours,
and turned the corners square as old
Veterans, and Ihey moved by com
pany front at a nwecp anna down to
the front of the stage, sweeping all be
fore tliem, the iso'en'e was Indeed a
royal one and the audience lu the
heartiest applause attested to their ap
preciation of the brilliant spectacle.
And ut the ch&rge bayonets another
salvo of applause greeted the gallant
battalion. In fact from beginning to
end tho applause was hearty and pro
longed. The evolutions throughout
were executed in the most excellent
manner. Ah old soldier present who
served alt through tiie war and held
high commission, said that the exact
ness of step oil tiie march, and the
precision of the movement were
among the moat ieffeet he had ever
seen during his long service. We feel
certain that the evolutions were
finely executed, ahd we take a pardon
able pride ilk tho great success of the
Battalion. The first appearance at
the former entertainment was excel
lent. The second was twenty five per
cent, better if that were possible. Tlie
manual of arms was gone through
With in regular order and Wus well
executed, although any one who lias
ever handled a gun and then at
tempted the same manual with the
broom Will ttud tlie latter a far more
dlillcult arm to manage owing to its

In this connection we are com pel led
to write of n matter which seems much
as an act of egotism, Hud for which
we must claim the indulgence of our
readers. At tlie close of the broom
drill Mr. Johnson culled the editor of
The Advocate to tho front of the
audience. The Captain of the Brobm
Battalion jmii'ecded to puss tho sen
tence of the court and said, addressing
the prisoner ut tlie bar:
Mh. I'arsons: In tlie name of tlie

The whole matter was a complete
surprise party to us fo quietly had the
?ii tire affair been managed. And still
greater was the surprise when, as we
endeavored toot leaat thank the young
ladies, the curtain, dropped and com
pletely cut us out.
The work of drilling the Battalion
vn done without expectation or de
sire for tho least recompense. And
tlit i:oble manner iii which they ac
quitted themselves was sufficient re
ward for th! little time a-id slhjrht
trouble taken to instruct thisbrightand
beautiful Broom Battalion. Thus we
feci twice paid and must ever after
owe them a debt of the kindest regard.
TlieCuptuIn und the young ladies of
the Ridgv,-ay Broom Battalion will
please accept my sinceru thanks for
the beautiful "token" the valuable ami
handsome gift. This will I hold in

though it possesses both, but for the
spirit that prompted its giving and the

Cows, Cow Cows.
The crass In the streetsof our beauti
ful little Borough is ' present at the
height of the season, and it needs the
attention of the man with the scythe.
Another thing we notice Is that the
sidewalks are in a passable condition,
In fuct are clean and neat and whole.
To have the";n clean Is a delightful
tiling but to have them In a whole
condition Is of far more Importance,
i3 a break in the sidewalk may en
danger the limb or life of gome unlucky
pedestlu'ii. If the cows were allowed
to run the grass would not bo, bo high,
neither would the sidewalks be in sucli
good condition. The fact is that a
weak board In the sidewalk that will
safely curry a person for months will
succumb to the first tread of tlie
wandering bovine. And that the
damages to tlie sidewalks by cattle
runiiiu tt largo is much greater than
from all other causes Is a fuct that
will bear no 'contradiction. For a
cow is a knowing creature and will
never walk in the road if a convenient
piece of sidewnlk can be found. Be
sides tlie wear and tear on the side
wnlks there ure other apparent reasons
that argue against the running at
large of the four-footed f: lends of us
all. Another thing, cattle like other
property should be titketl care of by
their owners and a person has as mucli
right to Dtiild his house in the street
as to hav liis eattle, horoCs, bogs,
etc., running ut large. As we said in
our last week's articlo there are too
sides to the question, md tho people
who have no cattle, or ire in favor of
tho Borough ordinance as it now
stands, Which provides for the taking
up of cuttle, etc., rucniug at large,
not only have as good right to their
opinion as have the people on the
other side of the house to theirs und
besides the law as explained by the
cou its for y care is all aral list tho idea'
of cuttle running, iiesides that lit
this Issue it Is not the cwners of cows
against those who do not own any,
for many cattle ownem have signed
tlie petition in favor of the ordinance
us it now stands, while many who do
not own cows have signed for its repeal.
In the countes of Erie and Crawford,
and bthei- counties 1n this State there
are special laws prohibiting the run
ning of cattle. Ami in Jhose counties
the wheat, corn, potatoes, and other
crops are entirely unprotected. Each
man fences against his wn stock and
that is tiie end of the tilde. In this
Borough were one-foirth of tlie
people to own cows and turn them in
tlie streets it would becone such a nuis
ance that tlie very strets would cry
out against tho veil, sid of course
one man would have as good ft right
to have his cow in thestieet asauother,
und whiie the presence if a ftw cows
on our streets would bo 10 ornament
the presence of droves (f the beasts
would bo a nuisance of tie first water.
All of the citizens or the place should
join hands In beautfying, Improving,
and advancing the best nterest of the
place. Then the greatest good to tlie
greatest number shouldpc taken into
consideration. There isno real hard
ship existing througii tl? enforcing of
tho law, while a repeal .vould almost
work a public calamity.

People r. Cunningham 1 Den.,
In Kent's commentaries, Vol. III.
we fi.id as follows:
Every thoroughfare which Is used
by the pub.ic, and is in the language
of the English books, .''common to all
tlie King's subjects," is a highway,
whither it be a carriuge-wiiy, a horse
way, a foot-way or navigable river.
It is, Buys Lord Holt, the feuiu of all
public wa;s. Tlie law with respect to
publi6 highway, and to fresh-water
rivers in tie same, and tlie analogy
perfect, us concerns the right of soil.
The presumption is, that tlie owners
on eachsidtgo to the middle of the
road, and they have the exclusive
right to the soil, subject to a right of
pussuge in tlie public. Being owners
of thesoil,tliey bavea right to all ordin
ary remedies for the freehold. They
may inuintaiii ua action of ejectment
for encroachments upon the road, or

against any peiton who digs up the

on the side of th) road, and left there

In Bouvler'a Law Dictoiiary, page
607 we find :
A highway Is simply o.n casementor

dents, the right to use tho soil for tlie
purpose of repair and Improvement,
and, In cities, for the more, general
purposes of sewerage, Ihe distribution
of light and water, and tho further
anceof public morality, health, trade,
and convenience. The owner of the
laud retains the fee and all rights of
property not incomputable with tlie
public enjoyment, such as the right to
the herbage, the trees and fruit grow

may work a mine, sink a drain or cel

pass and repassalong the public streets,
no person lias tho right to remain on
tlie foot pavement iu front of h dwelling-house,
after being requested to
leave by tho owner.
In t Barr, 337, the Supreme Court
No principle is moro familiar or bet
ter settled, than that tho right to the
soil of a highway resides in the pro
prietor of the land over which it has
been laid ; and that the citizen lias un
more than a license to pass along It
with carriages and cattle; an abuse of
which, like tlie obuse of any Other
license given, not by the party, but by
the law, makes him a trespasser,
against tho proprietor, from tlie be
ginning. It is unnecessary to go to
English decisions, or those in our
neighboring states for an application
of the principle to the misuse of a
highway, for we have ourselves ap
plied it t'.i tho landing of passengers
on the shores of a rivcr.'Jtself a high
way, ut the junction of a public road,
und making tlie spot a temporary
harbour for the craft of n ferry. If a
wagoner were at liberty to deposit or
dure on it, or, any thing else as of
fensive to a family dwelling at the
wayside; or he might make the spot a
resting-place bcfoM their door for days
or for months. The state has dedic
ated her highways to no such uses,
and the citizen has a right to enjoy
them only according to tlie intent.
But multiplying decisions of tlie
court will not change the principle in
all the cases that tlie public have but
tlie riff it of pannage in" the highway.
And no 'town Council or even tho
Legislature itself can give the public
more than that right without un In
fringement of tho rights of individuals.
It dots not follow that because one
man is possessed of a cow and another
man owns grass that the man with tlie
grass Is any more compelled to sur
render it io the man witli tlie cow,
than has the other to give up his cow
to the man witli the grass. The advo
cates of the cows running at large
seems to argue that as you have grass
and no cow you must necessarily give
It to hie for my cow as 1 have no grans.

(Phlladolphla truss June 3.)
Emporium, . June 12. Cameron
County is a . rather small one in
population, anil neither party can
boast of big majorities in uny recent
campaign. There is a very stnwig
independent sentiment, however, this
year, which may upset nil calcula
tions and reverse former figures. J.
XV. Cochran, a wealthy lumberman,
who employes a large number of
htinds, ha,v bceii die-posed to kick
against bossism for several years, and
it is quite likely he will efl'cotn little
revolution before the election. Mr.
Cochran was the choice of the county
and the people of the district for
delegate to Chicago, in 1880 but the
February Convention interfered
with his going. lie has never got
over this, and as he ha3 the power to
resent the notions of the bosses, he
will do it this fall, unless all signs
fail. Mr'. . Cochran's influence is
conceded by ev ery one, tntd tlie
probably result is not belittled by
any one. lie will cany many Re
publicans with him in this borough
and throughout the whole county.
Some people think that the Repub
lican vote will bo divided about
equally,' but this is probably a large
overestimate. The Independents be
long to two classes of workmen
those engaged in the lumber trade
and those in the railroad shops.
The Greenback ticket will get a
larger vote in this county in porpor
tion to the total than in many others.
In Elk County there is consider
able independent feeling. This is a
stetkly-going Democratic county of as
comparatively small population.
Nearly two-thirds of the votes be
long to the Democratic party. The
Stalwarts are led by. James It.
Hagerty, of ltidgway, who is decid
edly strong for the ticket, and is
making a o-ood (i'jrht for it. What
the strength of the Iudepndents will
be is uncertain, but the Advocate,
tho regular Republican organ, is I
strongly anti-Cameron, and .will take
down the Reaver ticket and openly
support Mr. Stewart,, if the Conven
tion of JitiK! 21 is hold. Mr. Hag
erty docs not think the Independent
vote will be important. lie says
the only people in it are those who
have been dissatisfied in the past.
It is probable, however, that an ac
tive campaign will bring some new
men to tlie movement who will con
trol many votes. , .
Iii all this seetiou of (he State from
AVilliamsport to Erie there is a quiet
feeling in favor of John G. Hall, of
Elk County, for Governor. lie is
regarded as a very strong man and
is a leading lawyer of the North
western section. He has occupied
several places of .distinction. As a
member of the Constitutional Con
vention, lie first exhibited strong
qualities of mind. lie has rep
resented this district in the Senate
for some years and is the recognized
Democratic leader of that body, and
twice received the votes of his party
for President. Mr. Hall is wealthy,
as are his own and his wife's relations.
He is a man of sound sense, strong
convictions, and entirely independ
ent of any entangling associations
with any clique or faction of the
Democratic party: K. M. u.
