THK MKE1) OF A CHANGE.
Uow Dishonest lim|)Het»ra Can Reverse
the Will of Hie People.
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 ?

A Question of Frauds.
But tlie question before the House uow is
Republican frauds. The Transcript has
charged that iront 40 to 50 unassessed
negroes from St. Georgia and Appoquini
iniuk hundreds voted at tlie late election T"
fraudulent tax receipts lu hundreds where
Republican Inspectors presided. A number
of the ignorant tools o! the leaders
of the. conspiracy that managed this
fraud have made u clean breast of
the whole business. They have stated
under oath where they voted, how they
voted, of whom they procured their fraudu
lent tax receipts, atid have as well given the
..jitk'8 of the three negroes who directed the
fraud here and furnished the means of
transportation to the land of the free and
illegal ballot. The Morning Newa cannot
turn pubic attention Iront this glaring out
rage on the ballot box by raking up things
that St. Georges hundred collectors arc
alleged lo have done ten yeats ago. We are

allusions to Pettigrew, to which the latter
bitterly replied, and left the house. Work

this bitter feelings sprang up, and trouble
has been apprehended. This moaning they

Without a word they fell upon each other.
Workman was the smaller man, but more

From this he inferred that the Republican

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

His name is withheld, but Ids misfortune
helped the panic, tfic like of which bas not
been experienced here or elsewhere. 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

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,

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

made during the day by the president under
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

a number of the former have already laid

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

The excitement iu Philadelphia was in

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."
