for appointment to refrain from return

and increasing the labors or tbe Super

It is a harsh and perhaps unwarranted
rtllortion on the inteUiK-nvoe and legal
kuowielge of Messrs. K.iitz, Kenda I
and KiHwer to say tba. any of tbm.i
have lor a single moment believed that
lhy r thu comin8 of tbe Bepnbli.mo
' parly of Somerset county for the office
of A- nililymen aud Corgres. rennet
I lively, by virtue of tbe primary eleetK.u
held April ".1st, but aiuoe tbe i aines of
the two gentlemen first mentioned ap
pear upon a certificate filed with tbe Sec
retary of the Commonwealth, attested
by the officers of an illegally conducted
convention, we presume that they mean
to make an effort to prevent the names
of their successful competitors W. H.
Sanner and Fred. Rawe from appearing
in tbe Republican column on the official
ballots to be voted at tbe general election.
Mr. Koontx's legal knowledge and
ease of fair play must tell him aa a
sans of hunesty and fairness tells every
man conversant with the facts that he
aud his colleague received minority of
the votes cast at the primary election,
aud they are therefor not, and have do
right to claim to be, the nominees of the
party. It Is presumed, also, tbat they,
before announcing their names as candi
dates and paying the usual announce
ment fees, attached their aignatures to a
pledge presented them by the Chairman
of the County Comm'ttee, whereby they
agreed to abide by the result of the pri
mary election and support the nominees.
Sanner and Rowe, their opponents, sub
scribed to such a pledge, and they mean
to abide by it.
Mr. Koontx's knowledge or the law and
his sense or fairneea must tell him as
tbe honest dictates or conscience baa told
every fair-minded man in the county
that the Chairman of tbe County Com
mittee was powerless to remove tbe Com
mitteemen of Jefferson and Larimer
townships, tbe former on tbe night pre
ceding the election and the latter on the
nigbt or the election after tbe polls had
been closed and the vote counted, without
giving them an opportunity to be heard,
and that the vote 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 or their respective
precincts, were reoguired as such, and
both perfoimed their duties under tbe
law and the rules of tbe 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 or a committee, a majority or which
was unalterably opposed to him.
Mr. Koontx's legal knowledge and
sense or fairness must tell him as the
dictates of honest conscience has told
every fair-minded man in the county
tbat the Chairman or the County Com
mittee and his unscrupulous agents bad
no legal or moral right to procure oy
fraud aud direct purchase the resigna
tions or Committemen who were hostile
to the re-election or the Chairman or bis
brother-in-law, and that the honest
voters, who saw that their confidence waa
about to be betrayed and their rights sac
rificed, acted clearly withiu their rights
and within the rules or tbe party wheu
on the morning or the election they pro
ceeded to elect judges to conduct their
elections. The mockery of decency and
justice In the case of New Baltimore bor
ough, where a non-resident is alleged in
a sworn affidavit to have, by deception
and unlawful means, procured the resig
nation of the duly elected Couimittetnan,
must appeal to General Koontx's knowl
edge of tbe law as well as to bis sense of
fairness, as it has already appealed to the
sense or fairness of every man conver
sant with the facts. This agent of Ber-
key's, after securing the resignation of
the Committeman by the methods and
means alleged himself a non-resident of
tbe district on the morning of tbe elec
tion set up au illegal poll, of which be
w aa the only officer and at which his was
the only vote cast. This same bogus and
illegally-appointed Committeeman, a
non-resident of New Baltimore, had the
brazen effrontery to preseut himself as a
member or the body or return judges and
to nominate brother-in-law Barron for
Chairman or the County Committee.
Mr. Koontx's knowledge or the law and
his sense or fairness must tell him as the
conscience of every honest man has al
ready disclosed that the vote of Ogta
township, which Chairman Berkey and
his illegally-assembled committee chose
to ignore, in order that Berkey might
figure out a majority for a 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 tbe power to disfranchise the voters
of Ogle township, simply because the
judge of election, illegally appointed by
tbe Chairman, failed 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 votes were lawfully
counted. The fact that an Illegally ap
pointed Committeeman attended tbe illegally-conducted
convection and cast a
vote for Brother-in-law Barron will not
vitiate tbe returns from Ogle, which give
a majority or 58 votes in favor of the Stal
Mr. Koontz'a legal knowledge and
sense of fairness must tell him, what has
already been made manifest to every lay
man and fairminded man in tbe county
that tbe vote of Garrett borough, where
tbe electors denied the right of the Chair
man of the County Committee to trans
cend bis powers and Dame a judge to
hold their election, but elected a judge or
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 tbe whim of County Ctxiir
man because they refused to recognize
bis unlawful assumption of power in order
that he or his brother in law might be
elected Chairman of the County Com
mitue. Mr. Koontx's knowledge of the law and
his sense of fairness niust have told him
1 rg erft this, an thn fids have impressed
every honest and fair-minded man in the
county, that if it is in tho power of the
Chairman of tbe Committee to remove
lueiubers of the Commitleo at bis pleas
ure, that nothing stands in tho way of a
designing and unscrupulous ofScer keep
ing himself in power indefinitely, mak
ing up a committee or persons absolutely
subject to bis commands, throwing cut
tbe votes or such districts as he may
deem uecessary in oider to declare cau

So two men in the county know better
than Messrs. Kooulx and Kooser that
they were hirly and honestly defeaud
for nomination to the offices to which
they aspired at tte Republican primary
election, hsld Aprd 21st, by a pronounced
majority of the votes, including tbe votes

A Sick Baa's Project.
A rich man's statement that he intends
to devote almost his entire fortune to
charitable works has aroused much dis
cussion. Tbis is because it will accom

endeavor, but there are many other
agencies which accomplish as much good.
Take Hos tetter's Stomach Bitters for
instance the great American remedy.
For fifty years it has cured constipation,
dyspepsia and all the ills which arise
from weak digestion. This medicine will
keep the stomach in good shape and the
bowels regular. It is a wonderful restor
