man t-aartette went by default, bat in
a burnt of generosity and goiil feeling,

any thought of the mi?j ?tity it v?oald

they don't know anything about the

If anything like a fair show had been

I Pinckard r?'!?. showing as 11 urn
ed tnat Wialker got preotioallv all 'if

lty is that the negro Republican vote
went latgnly to Wellford because
of the animosity b >rne by then
toward Onaiiiniu Lee as the author of
their p ilitioel mi-fortunes lui 'Hing the
iroonty. Now these are Bpooalationa
based on general principles. It is w 1
known, hivatv-r, that O .iifti .--mu an
Jonas tonk sn active pnrt, and al? i
thai money was not wanting to further
the Wellford interest-?. The Pinckard
men did not have the money, and,
therefore oould not hive vied with
their opponents in getting the mer?
cenary vote. N >t having any candidate
much i-f the colored vote was in the
market, and the btggest bar'l naturally
g it it. There need not be any doubt as
to the fact that both sides got every
vote they could by coaxing or for cost.
The Cheinp?ake Watchman says in
? ff-'it: "Let us have penca." The
Oltlien sayr? r "Barkis is willin'."
And the News claims that it has no
enemies to punish. All this is very
uioe in print, but those who know
anything about human nature can safe?
ly stake their bottom dollar that there
is not and will not be any peace
until one side or the other is placed
hors du combtit entirely. Reading be?
tween the lines, it is easy to Bee that
Hoa. W. A. Jones has got to fight every
inch of his way to get the delegation
from Lancaster next year. With Lee
as chairman and a solid comiiittee to
back him, it requires no propaet to
foresee tome lively flrfhting in that
county next year.
It w?8 supposed thatUouldmtn w told
have no Opposition, but at the last mo
meal W. D Laws, a colored lohool
teacher, of Northumberland, stepped
into the fight, and p lied a strong c >1
??red vote. The Repjblicans, having
made no nomination, it is somewhat
p iz/.ling to disc iver a reason for tin
candidacy of Laws. Not being tbe
p irty nominee, he certainly could not
expi-ct to receive the white Republican
Vote, and without that, there was n<>
earthly chance/for his election on a
m mi al poll, because his candidacy
would oertainly have the effect of bring?
ing ont a solid white vote f>r Gould
It ie entirely within the bounds of
the possibilities that Laws was used a?
a stool pigeon by the politicians to
canse a consolidation of the badly
divided Demooratio party of North?
umberland, and to create the im?
pression that the county was solid
for a Tyler man, and to give them a
stronger grip npon county politics.
This is merely surmise, bnt stranger
things have occurred.

political condition that will obtain

The Ex-Spoaker's Advice
The Baltimore Son Bays :
At the annual banquet of the New
Vi.k Chamber of Commerce ?i
Spftaksr Keed disenssed the pond?
liona ui? i-img l?gislation at Wash
ington and urged the nfces-ity ot
making the gold standard sore durum
? i: session of Congress
Hitherto, h? ?S|laine?l, it has been
i in practicable to legislate because the
money question was ?till under dis
easflton and the Senate was an
obstacle, but n??w full reaponsibilitj
iipou the K--publiesn party
beeanse it controls both branches ol
. .is well as the Wtii'H House.
'* One party," ?aid the ox-Speaker,
" low has possession of both hou-e?
?knd is responsible to the country.
For long years wo have had no re
spoombiliry?the Senate was one
way, the House another ?nod nobodj
knew whom to blame. Now we know
where to put tun blame. If the
wishes of our people are ntlt c?rri?d
out, the responsibility is clear" To
the ot'j etion that it ill becomes him
to urge now ou others action on the
qu stum of the standard which w?g
not takeu by the House when he had
control of that body, Mr. Keed
makes tho reply that he was never in
a p isitioii during all the years of hi.?
Speakership to settle the m ?oey
??destion by deciding dt finit?ly upon
?tie standard. " I was rever so
placed," be says ; " m my time the
S.-nato was given over to badness
Now that the Booate \* It-publican,
let us," he continu? s, " make sure of
our standard. Whether anything
else should be our aim I am not here
now to discuss, but what we koow
we agree on let us have." la a large
country like the Uuited States it is
d IH'ult to secure agreement oo any
question, but now that, after years
?it laborious discussion, a vast ma
j >rity of the people have decided
upon ?ouud money. Congress should
put the decision of the people into
the form of a statu'e. It is often
objected by timid politicians afraid
of offending Bilverlte constituents
that it is useless to establish the ex
clu-ive gold standard by law, for the
reason that any subsequent Congress
may repeal such law. But this mode
of reasoning, if held to consistently,
would prevent all legislation, since
all statutes ate sublet to repeal.
Mr. Roed puts the matter in a nut
-ii--ll : '' If it be said that there is no
security that Congress may not re
peal, to that I answer : I should hope
not among a people still free Are
we never to settles anything bpcause
that settlement can be npset T Tnose
who have seen how long laws linger
kvhich have been outgrown need not
fear that a law once passed can be
oo easily repealed. If the people
wish to repeal it, it is their right, but
?t should iibver be left in the hands
? ?f any Administration to so adminis?
ter the law we have that its amply
an?l fully declared intent should be
trittered away."
Iacideutally the ex Speaker traced
the crude views on matters of money
and nuance rec-ntly in fashion in the
West and South to the immaturity
and inexperience of the Western
communities ia which Populism
. riginate'l. "Men in newly settled
parts of the country." h? explained,
'? have been in a verv d?ff ?rent posi?
tion from ourB. We have been
through all the experiences of a false
currency and have established our?
selves at li.st upon the basis taught
by that suffering which renders ex?
perience the best master. We hare
our records and do not wish to have
history repeat itself. The men in the
new country are facing what our
ancestors faced?an undeveloped
country, the riches of which they
long to possess. They made the same
mistake our anoestors made?that
money was what they wanted, and
not capital ; money which oould be
got for nothing, instead of capital,
which costB years, and trust and
fa th." But the errors due to imma?
turity generally yield to the lessons
taught by experience. 8ome States
formerly given over to monetary
error are now among the stauchest
supporters of sound money, and
heterodoxy oocapies a constantly
narrowing are?. I owa is instanced
?a ? State that was once " the home
of the howling dervishes of rag
