And I do authorize and empower him

held April IsX, but since Lit i amea of
the two gentlemen first uentioued ap
pear npon a certificate filed with the Sec
retary of the Commonwealth, attested
by ti. officers oi a3 illegally conducted
convention, we ereume that they mean
to wake an effort to prevent the names
of their saceeasful oMnpetitors W. H.
Sanner and Fred. Rowe from appearing
in the Republican column on the official
bailiHs to be voted at the general election.
Mr. Koontz's legal knowledge and
sense of fair play must tell him as a
sense of honesty and fairness tells every
man conversant with the f mis that he
and his colleague received a aunority of
the votes cast at the primary election,
aud they are therefore not, and have no
right to claim to be, the nominees of the
party. It is presumed, also, that they,
before announcing their names as candi
date and paying the usual announce
ment fees, attached their signatures to a
pledge presented them by the Chairman
of the County Committee, whereby they
agreed to abide by the result of the pri
mary election and sopport the nominees.
Sanoerand Rowe, their opponents, sub
scribed to such a pledge, and they mean
to abide by it
Mr. Koontz's knowledge of the law and
his sense of fairness must tell him aa
the honest dictates of conscience hss told
every fafr-minded man in the county
that the Chairman of the County Com
mittee was powerless to remove the Com
mitteemen of Jefferson and Larimer
townships, the former on the night pre
ceding the election and the latter on the
night of the election after the polls had
been closed and the vote couo'ed, without
giving them an opportunity o be beard,
and that the votes cast at the polls con
ducted by Messrs. Schlag and Smith
must be counted, while the votes cast at
the voting places illegally established by
Chairman Berkey must be thrown out.
Schlag and Smith were elected Commit
teemen by the voters of their respective
precincts, were recognized as such, and
both perfoimed their duties under the
law and the rules of the party, and Chair
man Berkey or no other authority had
the right to depose either of them without
fair notice and an opportunity to be
heard, merely that he might retain con
trol of a committee, a majority of which
waa unalterably opposed to him.
Mr. Koontz's legal knowledge and
sense of fairness must tell him as the
dictate of honest conscience baa told
every fair-minded man in the county
that the Chairman of the County Com
mittee and his unscrupulous agents had
no legal or moral right to procure by
fraud aud direct purchase the resigna
tions of Committemen who were hostile
to the re-election of the Chairman or bis
brother in-law, and that the honest
voters, who saw that their confidence was
about to be beirayed and their rights sac
rificed, acted clearly within their rights
and within the rules of the pty wbeu
on the morning of the election they pro
ceeded to elect judges to conduct their
lections. The mockery of decency and
justice in the case of New Baltimore bor
ough, where non-resident is alleged in
a sworn affidavit to have, by deception
and unlawful means, procured the resig
nation of the duly elected Cammitteman,
must appeal to General Koontz's knowl
edge of the law as well aa to hia seuse of
fairosea, as It has already appealed to the
sense of fairness of every msn conver
sant with the faCs. This agent of Ber
key 'a, after securing the resignation of
the Committeman by the methods and
means alleged himself a non-resident of
the district on the morning of the elec
tion set up au illegal poIL of which be
waa the only officer and at which hia was
the ouly vote casL This same bogus and
illegally-appointed Committeeman, a
non resident of New Baltimore, had the
brazen effrontery to present himself as a
member of the body of return jud ges and
to nominate brother-in-law Barron for
Chairman of the County Committee.
Mr. Koontz's knowledge of the law and
hia sense of fairness must tell him as the
conscience of every honest man has al
ready disclosed that the vote of Ogle
township, which Chairman Berkey and
his illegally-assembled committee chose
to ignore. In order that Berkey might
figure out a majority for part of the in
surgent ticket, should hsve been counted.
as it will be counted when the matter
comes before the courts, where it will be
finally decided solely on its merits.
Mr. Berkey or no other power on earth
has the power to disfranchise the voters
of "gle township, simply because the
judge of election, illegally appointed by
the Chairman, tailed to obey the Chair
man's illegal orders. Under such cir
cumstances the rules provide that the
electors shall proceed to elect a judge
of election. This waa done and the
election was held in strict conformity
with law and the rotes were lawfully
counted. The fact that an illegally ap
pointed Committeeman attended the illegally-conducted
convention and cast a
vote for Brother-in-law Barron will not
vitiate the returns from Ogle, which give
a majority of 5S votes in favor of tae Stal
Mr. Koontz's legal knowledge and
senoe of fairness must tell him, what has
already been made matiifnt to every lay
man and fairtuinded maa in the county
that the vote of Garrett borough, where
the electors denied the right of the Chair
man of the County Committee to trans
cend his powers and name a judge to
hold their election, but elected a judge of
their own choice, must be counted.
Sixty -eight honest and intelligent voters
who cast their ballots In strict conformity
with law and party rules cannot be dis
franchised at the whim of a County Chair
man because they refused to recognize
his unlawful assumption of power in order
that he or hia brother-in-law might be
elected Chairman of the County Cjid
mitue. Mr. Koontz's knowledge of the law and
bis sense of fairness mu?t have tr-ld him
1 r g ere this, as !hs fscts have impressed
every honest and fair-minded man in the
county, that if it is in the power of the
Chairman of the Committee to remove
members of the Commitlee at his pl&us
nre, that nolhlug stands in the wy of a
dsglng and unscrupulous officer keep
ing himself in power indefinitely, innk
