LESS "POLITICS"—MORE NEWS.
From this time on for a season the
Jou mal will give its readers less poli
tical matter but more news, especially
general news. Not that we feel one
whit less interest in public affairs, nor
would we have the people less watch
ful of what our represent atives in state
and national legislatures, as well as
other public officials, are doing, or what
they leave undone. Every citizen and
voter should be well informed on the
passing political events of his country,
acd every one expects to read them in
his own paper. These we will endeav
or to publish, faithfully and regularly,
but the common regulation campaign
literature of the day will cease for a
white in the Journal, even at the risk of
having its party orthodoxy called into
We assume that by this time the gen
r rl public is pretty thorough* informed
that Pattison is elected Governor of
Pennsylvania, and that he will be a
••just splendid" Governor, notwith
standing his relative youth ; that Gov.
Cleveland, (if New York, has a majori
ty just a trifle too clumsy for any prac
tical nw; that the big Democratic
broo made all out a clear sweep over
the whole 4 land of the free that the
n xt congress will have a Democratic
ui j vity and elect a Democratic Speak
er : that our dressy and showy Stalwart
President is by no means a second
Washington, and that Don Cameron
and the other big auvl little Stalwart
b -Aes are about the woist and wicked
est set of men in politics this side of
Now the Journal don't care to repeat
t •s? and other well-established facts in
-lightly varied form, wee k after week,
throughout the entire year.
"There is a time for everything," and
even party papeis would do well to re
vvrt to the time-honored adage of the
J philosopher,once in a while. Th pa
lter tli.it cannot for a season at least lift
itV.f out and above lite well-worn cam-
It lign rut has but a low conception of
♦ duties and responsibilities of jour
T. ere are other and to the Journal
ni re congenial lines of duty. We will
-Tive in the future as we haye done in
the pist, to make ours a live, readable,
i jstructive and chaste local and family
I *pT. We are very free to confess that
v.e never yet nearly reached our ideal
, f what such a paper should be, and
never may, but are doing the very best
we can with our modest abilities and
the material at command.
la our local department we give all
the mentionable incidents, happenings, !
ai d particuhuly all the - material im
j vc nenrs obtainable in the commun-1
I T. True, we cannot publish every-'
thing that occurs, and it is sometimes
TC y difficult to get full and accurate,
tails of the more important events in
tto neighborhood. And just here we
vhi refer to one matter which perhaps
w. should have mentioned before now : •
We do uot publish marriage or obituary
i; -Rices unless furnished with the prop- 1
*r l t by responsible persons. We will
i.ot • trsj it the names of those who get
man itJ. or at the ages of those who de-
JM. t thL life, as the uiuuaer of SJUIO is
It grates harshly upon the bereaved
hearts, as well as upon the happy spirits
of those immediately concerned. This
is the reason the Journal is sometimes
a week behind other papers in giving
these anxiously looked-for notices.
It would be an easy matter to till our
columns with general news to the ex
clusion of everything else—ana this
would be tne easiest way to edit a pa
per. We glean from thedailies— largely
fiom sucli first cJa*s papers as the Phil
adelphia Tours —whatever in our
opinion is most useful and instruc
tive. We have a strong aversion to
publishing the revolting details ot
every murder, hanging, suicide, prize
fight and other crimes and scandals
that are becoming so common in this
great country, although they are'sought
and read with insatiable greed by a
large class of people. They are not
proper reading matter for the family
circle, for they neither instruct nor im
prove, but have a strong tendency to
debase and corrupt both mind and mor
als, especially of the young.
A public journal should take advanc
ed grounds in educational and school
matters, in the temperance cause, in
every progressing and projected im
provement. It should freely commend
everything good and noble, and as fear
lessly condemn every wrong, lint who
is equal to all these multitudinous and
high duties ?
Having set out at some length the in
tended course of the Journal in the near
future, and having arrived as we hope,
at a fair understanding with our pa
trons and friends, we will labor on
cheerfully and hopefully.
SEN A HE.
WASHINGTON', December 4.—The
senate was called to order at noon by
I President pro tem. Davis. After pray
j er by the chaplain the customary reso
' hit ions were adopted for the nppoint
j raenfc of a committee to notify the
I President and tlx? house that the sen-
: ate was ready for business.
Mr Brown then, in a solemn and
feeling manner, announced the death of
Senator 11 ill of Georgia, and the senate
at 2 50, as a token of respect for the
memory of the deceased, adjourned.
WASHINGTON, December 4.—The
second session of the Forty-seventh
congress opened ac 11 o'clock. The
desk occupied last session by the 1 ate
Representative Updegraff was taste
fully dressed in black and ornamenteJ
by a basket of flowers. In his opening
prayer, the chaplain alluded feelingly to
to.the deaths of Representatives Lowe
and Updegraff. The speaker then for
mally declared the session opened and
the eletk proceeded to call the roll of
members. The call disclosed the pres
ence of 202 members. A resolution
was adopted providing for the appoint
ment of a committee to inform the.
President and the senate that the house
was ready to proceed to business.
The President's message was read and
ordered to be printed. The deaths of
Representatives Low, of Alabama and
Updegraff, of Ohio, were announced
and as marks of respect to their mem
ories the house at 3 10 adjourned.
Three Speculations About It—Sten
ger Looming Up—Cassidy, Buck
alew, Hay and Jenka.
The Pattison Cabinet is freely
discussed amoDg the politicians now,
and speculation is rife among the
Democratic leaders as to how the
new an ministration is to be organi
-1 zed. It is credibly stated that Ex-
Assist int District Attorney John R.
Reed was first the leading man for
Secretary of the Commonwealth,
but Cassidy then looomed up for At
torney General, and that halted
Reed in the race, * The Secretary
ship then wandered westward, ac
cording to current rumor, and struck
Malconi Hav, of Allegheny, but lieis
not in harmnny with Cassidy, and
he is now regarded as having placed
himself out of the range of Cabinet
honors. It is hinted that he would
have accepted the Attorney Gener
alship, but not the Secretaryship.
There is a matter of four thousand
dollars difference in the salary of
the two positions—-the Secretaryship
being worth, including fees, about
$7,000 per annum, and the Attor
ney Generalship SII,OOO.
The latest rumor that is rapidly
crvstalizing into Democratic belief,
is that Ex-Congressman William S.
Stenger, of Cliambersburg, is likely
tc be tendered the Secretaryship of
the commonwealth, and that the At
torney Generalship oscillates be
tween Lewis C. Cassidy.of this city,
Charles R Ruck;.lew, of Columbia,
and George A. Jenks, of Jefferson,
All are strong and experienced law
yers. There is formidable opposi
tion to Cassidy in his own party in
this city, and all the Senatorial can
didates for 1885 would look with
suspicion upon his appointment to
the Pattisor, cabinet. Mr. cassidy
has not avowed his desire to be ap
pointed, and it is possible that lie
may solve the problem by declining
altogether, in which case it is be
lieved tint Buckalew would have
more than an even chance for win
