By such rulings ns were made in the Lynch-Martin case, und by the opinions of several lawyers, it would be possible* for one dishonest Inspector to defeat the expressed will of the people of a whole county. Sup pose, for instance, the inspector for Milford hundred in this county, had seen lit-, not withstanding his oath, to dishonestly return a thousand Republican majority from that hundred, and men cun he iound who would willingly perform such dirty work, lie could have overcome the Democratic majority of 500 and 50 in this county, anil, according to the opinion of some of the New Castle lawyer: of both parties, the Governor would be com pelled to issue commissions to every Re publican candidate in the county although everybody would know that not one had been hoin*stly elected. Theinspector could make his false returns to the hoard of cuu _I, the board of canvass would he compelled to count the vote as re turned, not having power legally to open the boxes, no matter how great frauds were charged and could be proved ; aud the Governor upou the certificate of the Board would be compelled to issue com missions to the parties thereby api*»arlttg to have received a majority of the votes, although in doing so he might know that he was furthering an Infamous conspiracy. No matter who says so we cannot believe that this is law. In construing a law the reason and spirit as well as the w ords of a law must be con sidered, also the iutention of the mukers must be taken into account. In the law prescribing the duties of the Board of Can vass there Is not one word to prevent t liât Board opening the boxes and investigating frauds upon the ballot, indeed, in some cases the right is giver, to go behind the returns, and no one will dare to contend that it was the intention of our law-makers to make it possible for three dishonest inspectors in the State, one iu each county to overcome any majority the people might roll up against them, ami by fraud backed by force legally to assume entire control of our State Government. They never meaut it and the law does not mean it, but all such laws should l>e closely exam i in d aud amended this winter in such a manner that dishonest partisans will be unable to con strue them in such a way as to promote their base schemes. As it is, it will be almost impossible to oust Martin from the office to which he was never elected aud who can now suggest a way of regaining our State government, except by brute force, if ex tensive frauds of the same character should hereafter be committed ? ing 29. the by ut a. to to in of JANAISIH IK.

[Philadelphia Pres«, j Pittsburg, Nov. 24.— -To-dftv mutt go into hlstjry as the blackest of blaek Fridays in tbe history of oil. Those who tboaglR jjfJj nothing could he w orse than yesterday after noon, when oil tumbled to 98 cents, con fessed by noon to-day that there were un touched depths on Thursday tbat were fully sounded on Friday.

Loans have been called fn, and oil margined down to 85 cents ; in other words one must con sent to place that value ou cash barrel be fore he can squeeze a dollar over a bank counter on oil certificates. The lowest point reached during the forenoon was 88 cents, shortly before the noon closing. The opening price was 99 vents, and the fore noon range was as follow» : Bid, 95, $1, 95, 98, 97, 98, 87. 92% 94 bid at the close. In the afternoon there was a further reaction, and the market closed for the day at 9fJ>£. Oil City, Nov. 24.—This has been an other day oi great animation in oil, aud the result is disastrous to many men yesterday possessed of fortunes. The decline wo« un expected aLd came like a thunderbolt from a cloudless sky; yet a close inspection shows it should have been expected. The advaoco has been extensive and continuous. A large number of men who never speculated be fore had invested. They had heard stories of how everybody was making money rap idly, and they went in. The enormous stocks were lost sight of. They thought of nothing but the advauce to $1.50, which they felt sure must come. TJie brokers gen erally advised caution, but tbe spéculaient emboldened bv succès* bought more uutfl their capital was exhausted. When the end of the string was reached it had to give way. Many of the older and more experieneed speculators saw how the matter stood and sold their oil. When the break commenced the heavy dealers having learned by bitter experience the futility of trylug to swim against tbs current commence! polling short. Then the president put out oil under the rule for weak parties ami these sufferers. The decline can hardly prove of a permanent nature, and an early recovery la more than probable. While the lambs are being shorn the probabilities are that the wolves are taking in oil, and when the market gets on its teat ugaln it will proba bly go higher than it has been yet. It opened this morning at 101, declined to 80, advanced and closed ut 96. ■bed 9, 80«, 000. made during the day by the president under the niles. Warren, Nov. 24.— The excitement In oil exchange circles continued to-day. The market opened at $1.40, broke to 9s and in less than ten minutes oil was offered at 80. Withfew exceptions men doing a heavy ppeca laiiug business were ruined—fortunes being swept away in a few momeuta. Broken) were obliged to sell out their customers, aud a number of the former have already laid down. Brokers Knowles, of Warren, and Drake, of Oil City, stepped in and took all offered, which saved a further decline. The market closed at 96'4, with a better feeling. It will not advance much uutil settlements are made. The oil regions will never recover from the pauic. Millions of dollars have been lost, and there is distress in nearly every homestead. It I« expected that there will bn reports to-mor row of parties failing to meet demands tbe clearing bouse. The banks have refused to do further business unless 20 per cent, all oil bought and .-old is deposited. the principal The sale» Numerous «ales were 'rnn cause; The excitement iu Philadelphia was in tense, and on the exchange tho price readied 861.}. The agent of the Chester Oil Cotnpauy »ays : "The cause is a tightness in money and the Standard Oil Company's manipulation of the oil mark ». It 1» probably the policy »if the Standard Company to drive all tb» small speculators out of the market, thu* compelling them to sacrifice their invest ments. They iu this way reduce the price of crude petroleum, and find plenty of It on the market. It is pofriblc that they will buy in the crude at «. low price and then force refined up to such :i figure as to make for themselves a handsome profit. At present it is my opinion that the Htandanl Company is jumping upon the market with both feet. Tia re is, in in. miud, no good reason lor the present decline. The demand for petroleum by consumers io Htrong. ami the »apply is not so great ns to warrant any decline at all. As to tlie future we cun only conjecture. What the result will be remains to no seen. Of course It is natural to expect a reaction." CGCKEREI.L ACQUITTED.

Mr. Cockerell seems to regret as much as • the terrible occurrence which deprived Colonel Slay back of bis life, but. lie still points to the facts that no sane man could have acted other than he did.
