Creveraxp's letter to Mrs Bececher
was & magnificent illustration of man
hood. ;
Tue moral issue is panning out
badly. Grover Cleveland has fsiled
to prove an alibi. ;
Bricur and early on Tuesday
morning the death knell of the De
mocracy will be sounded throughout
the North tollicg the cementing of a
solid North agaiost a solid Soutb.
Axoruer Presidential struggle will
soon be ended, and will pass into
history conspicuous for the vilest
slanders ever presented againet a
candidate for the bighest cffice in the
gift of the people.
Artee four consecutive defeats at
the haunds of the people, apparently
undaunted and undismayed, the South
in solid phalanx, encouraged by their
Northern sympathizers, are marching
on to Washington, and they can only
b 2 checked by the votes of a loyal
people, cast for Blaine and Logan on
Tuesday. Keep the rebe's out.
Tue candidacy of Charles A. Miller
appeals to every ltboring man in the
city who desires that himself and
family shall live in any kind of pros
perity. Mr. Miller's election will
help to determice the status of the
next Congress, and this is extremely
important, and in the event of Demo
cratic ascendancy fraught with danger
to the interests of not only the laborer,
but of all classes. Get out the vote!
Tre campaign has been one given
to ‘much mud-slinging and “slander.
Tne Democrats have called into re
quisition the vilest of their many low
methoeds to insure the success of an
utterly rapacious crowd, and though
herculean efforts have been made, we
are of the opinicn that Tuesday will
be an exceedingly cold day for both
Jobn Bull end Grover. ILet us hope
that this well-buried party may never
be resurrected after that day.
Mg.. Braixg, after amost successful
tour of the States ot Indiana,Michigan,
Ohio, West Virginia and Illinois, has
retarned to New York Stste, {rom
whence he started, haying left along
the entire line of his route the most
sanguine hope of success. His pre
sence among the people has done
great good for the party, going right
into those States where his maligners
have csst their bitterest invectives,
and told the most absurd lies; facing
as he has doune before his enemies in
their strougholds, end appealing di
rectly to the people for a vindication.
How unlike Mr. Cleveland, who has
been putting in twelve hours a day at
Albany, and done nothing but write
a letter to Mrs. Beecher.
Solid, as Usual
Avier a careful canvass of this
State we find, as is always the casc in
every section of it, that the colored
vote is almoset a unit for the State
and National ticket. In some of ihe
counties there is a difference of opin
ion existing regardiog the candidates
on the regular ticket, and it is rathcr
more (o their credit than their dis
credit that colored voters are using
gome iutelligent disctimination as to
the scle:tion of local cfticers. In tbe
Seventh Legislative Distric® ¢f Phila
delphia there are many colored men
who are supperting independent can
didates for the Legislature, but in few
sections of the State arc there to be
found any in support of the Demo
cratic National ticket. At this crisis
it not only shows their good judg
ment, but illustrates fully that the
Republican party has in the colored
voter its strongest adterents Dis
affection among them is almost un
known, and while every other class
of American citizens charge and are
estimated as uncestain, thege faithful
representatives and true sapporters of
Republicanism stand fast and immov
able. We invite now, as we have
often done before, the attention of
the leaders of the party to the faith
fulness of the colored voters. We
ask them to bear in mind that pot
withetarding the fact that in this
State, as in many other INorthern
States, we have been absolutely ig
nored and denied representation ¢f a
veice in the gelection of the candidates
upon the National end State tickets;
that we aro supporting, almost undi.
videdly, the Republican ticket, and
we trust that in the future a place of
honor will always be given the men
who fight so earnestly and faithfully
for the perpetuation of Republican
confrol. Go get out the vote.
The Bloody Shirt.
Tur American people have to de
cide once more after twenty-five
years of government control of the
pecple fer the peeple and by the peo
ple. They bave to decide whbether
one gection of the Government shall
stand oul independent of and directly
oppcsed to the best ioterests of
Americanism. The issues of 1861
are still before the country, potwith
standing other importact issues have
crept in, but who can say that to day
we are not fighting with the ballot the
same enemy that we fought with shot
and shell. All of the old animcesity
and bitter feeling which existed in
the South against tbe North is as
bitter to-day as in 1861, This kind
of Jsrgument we belizve is called
waving the bloody shirt, but that
picce of iinen is just 3s much subject
to cleansing as any cther, but it
flaunts before the eyes of the people,
because preceding every election it is
saturated by the shot-guns of the
South in the gore of black men. It
is to be hoped that on Tuesday next
the doom ¢f the Democracy will be
so firmly sealed that they will vever
agiin raise as 3 National perty.
Mr. Bercuer in his efforts to
prove that Grover Clevelznd is de
serving the support of the honest
voter takes a position which the ad
mirers of good government fail to
appreciate. This learned diviue's
actions confirm the belief that many
entertain of his approuching dotage.
How Mr. Beecher can stand up with
out recoil and advecate the candidacy
of a man who represants the very
principles which he (Beecher) in pol
ished argument has time and again
bitterly denounced through the press
and from the rostrum, advances the
general impression that he has outt
lived his usefalness ; his once brilliant
star is in its declination. Deccher
A few more days and the day will
have arrived upon which the moral (?)
Mr. Cleveland and the notorious
Hendrick's (notorious for his life
labor in opposition to the Negro and
his interests) wiil be relegated to
their obscare homes, where they
belong until lite's jouraey is ran.—
Cleveland Gazette.
Will colored men of the North play
our brethren of the South {false by
voting for Cleveland and Hendricks
and thus help to protract: the cruel
condition of colored citizens in that
section? We do not believe it —
Boston Hub.
Tae Viar 15 Auvost Foin.—The
manifest unfairness of the {reatment
of Negroes in the South as compared
with whites, cannot but create the
worst of feelings between races. It
would be well to refrain in time from
this heaping up of wrath against a
day of wrath.—New York Witness.
We maintain that it is an outrage
that the Seuth should be permitted
to cast 153 Democrstic votes, when
it is notorious that these votes are
thus cast by trampling under foot
freedom of speech and aclion of a
vast body of co-equal citizens. Mr.
Blaine protests against this most
inignitons outrags, and he should not
protest in vain=New York Globe.
- We tell you colored voters that
you would fare badly at the bands of
the red-mouthed Demccracy. There
is a bright hope fcr us in another
Republican administration. The
black hand that puts in a Democratic
vote belongs to an ignorant fool, cra
knavish wretch who is without love
of race.— Indianapolis Leader.
The political mercenary adventarer,
Carl Schuz, has carried his disgusting
form and nasty tongue, and dirty
shirts into Massachusetts, There was,
a time in Msssachusette when a Iles
sian wonld not have been safe in that
State.— Lowisville Dullctin.
Resclutions Adopted by the Old
Reliable Club of Pennsylvania
at a Meeting held at Mid
dletown, Oct. 22d.
The following resolutions were
adopted by the Old Reliable Club of
Penusylvanla at a meeting held at
Middletown, October 224 d:
Whereas, In the body politic of
this State and Nation, our race has
proved no important factor, and
we dosm it but fitting and expedient
to give expressioa to our position in
the present political struggle.
Rescolved, That the Republican
party in its wise administration of the
public aflairs, in its protection to
heme industries, in its subservienecy
to the bebests and will of the people,
heartily commends itself to the sup
port of every inteliigent man in this
broad domain.
Llesolved, That the existence of a
“so'id South,” made so by intrigue,
perfidy, cutrage, and the world phase
of oppression, and being in direct
controst with this State where politi
cal liberty is enjoyed Through the
dominaticn of the Republican party,
presents to us a complete argument
for the perpetuation of that party and
its principlee.
Llesolved, That we, in convention
assembled, do carnestly appeal to the
colored voters of this grand old Com
monwealth fo ally themselves with
and mske strenuous effurts in behalf
of the party of Lincoln, Sumner and
Stevens. .
Resolved, That we entertain a hizh
sens: of apprecistion for the able
mavagement of the campaign in this
State under the worthy chairman of
cur State Committee, Hon. T. V.
Cooper, and impress upon all identi
fiecd with our race the necessity of
giving him ell possible aid.

An Old Trotter Tries His Speed,
An old trotter named Bradshaw is now
owned by an ash hauler ofAllegheny City,
Pa., who bought him in Kentucky for $2O
after he had been iturned out to die. A
few days ago he was taken to the racing
track at the Four Mile House. 'While
being hitched to the sulky he scemed
once again to feel the excitement of a
crowded and closely contested race. His
head was thrown up and his nostrils dis
tended, the dull glaze disappeared from
his eyes and he pawed the earth with the
same fire that swayed him when he was
backed to win. After being warmed up
he was started and went under the wire
for a mile dash, IHe settled down to the
work and made but one short break. He
worked hard and came in in 2:30. When
hitched into the old ash wagon again it
seemed to break his heart,and he has not
since been able, apparently, to do the
rough work that is his lot.
Born Without Ears, But Made to Hear,
From the New Castle News,
Living in North Beaver township, this
county, is a man named Wilson, who has
a little” daughter aged two years and
which was borm without ears. On one
gide of the face there was no sign of an
outward ear, the side being perfectly
smooth, while 6n the other side there was
a little eartilege, but it had grown over
the canal. The other organs of the child
were perfect, with the exception of the
jaw, which was badly shaped. On Sun
day the physicians performed the difficult
operation of making an opening, and
found a yperfect inner ear by cutting
through the integument to the bony open
ing into the inner ear. They then formed
as perfect an outer ear as possible from
the flesh and the little one is able to hear

“I tell you what,” airily exclaimed
Perkins, as he sat down to the supper
table, *'l was in a tight place this after
“Yes, I know you were,” interrupted
the wife, in clear, celd utterances that
cut like a knife; “I saw vou coming out
of it.”” And then it flashed acrossgl’er
kins that he had incidentally stepped into
a saloon with a friend for the purpose of
examining a doubtful political statement
with the aid of a magnifying glass, and
his contemplated anecdote slipped from
his grasp like money at a summer resort,
while the supper was finished amid a si
lence so profound that he could plainly
hear a papkin ring.
A Boon for the Housewife,
A machine for cleaning carpets without
beating them is a recent juvention. It is
a polygonal drum formed of wooden bars,
and fixed on 2 shaft revolving horizor
tally. Itis twelve feet in diameter, six
feet in length, and is enclosed i & cham
ber and driven by a gas engineof twelve
horse power, which also drives 4 fan for
drawing the dust from the cham?)er. The
carpets are placed in the drum, which is
fitted with internal rollers, andthese turn
the carpet over as the drum revolves. At
twenty-two revolutions a minute from
200 to 300 square yards of carpet are
cleaned in an hour. :
A Time to Pray, But Net to Pipe.
Rehoboth Herald.,
The late Dr. Macadam used to tell of a
tipsy Scotchman making his way home
upon a bright Sunday morning when the
good folk were wending their way to the
kirk. A little dog pulled a ribbor from
the hand of a lady who was lcading it,
and as it ran from her she appealed to the
first passer-by, who happened to be the
inebriate, asking him to whistle for her
“Woman ! he retorted, with that so
lemnity of visage which only a Scotchman
can assume, ‘‘woman, this is no day for
Domestic Economy.
Bride—‘“How eagsy it is to be economi
cal. I saved sixty-five cents last week
by making bread myself instead of buy
in%L it of the haker.”
(oung Husband—“lndeed !”
“Yes. I counted all the items care
“Queer how figures differ. I thought
we came out &3 behind.”’
“Dear me, I must have lef, something
out. What was it?” ¢
“The dyspepsia medicine.”’
It is the purpose ot both parties to
have a grand walk-around on Satur
day, Nov. 1. 'We do not approve of
this kind of congruity in politics, and
one party or the other ought to
change the date. :
Too Many Blessings.
“What shall it profit,”” croakers ask,
“if we raise large crops and sell at low
prices?”’ Even the very men who ought
to knew better than anybody else Low
large crops promote the general preperity,
the farmers themselves, are often heard
complaining because their labors have
been too productive.
Here are two crops for instance: 500,-
000,000 bushels of wheat this year, and
1,800,000,000 bushels of corn. Are they
a curse to the farmer or a blessing?
Prices are very low, buteven at these al
most unprecedented prices the two crops
would be worth about $1,062,000,000
for corn and $420,000,000 for wheat. To
gether they would more than pay the
National debt—§1,437,000,000; and these
are only two of the many crops raised
this year. Is this a melancholy state of
facts? Last year, September 15, prices
at New York were €1 143 for No. 2
Red Winter wheat, and 63 tor No. 2 corn,
and yet the aggregate value of that year,
if sold at those prices, was about £25,—
000,000 less than the value of this year’s
crop, even at present prices. Butevery
body ought to know that this is not a fair
The farmer himself ea's a great deal of
bis wheat, even when prices are high.
Why ? Because it is worth more to him,
as ncurishment and comtort for himself
and family, thap it is worth to sell. Is it
a misfortune, then, for him to have more
wheat to eat? Remember that he ploughs
and secds as many acres for a good as for
a bad crop; hires as much labor, spends
as much of his own-.energy, and bears as
hcavy an outlay. Is it & carco to the
farmer to have more return for the same
expenditure and labor?
The farmer knows that it pays better
to put corn into hogs or cattlethan to sell
it below a certain price. Why? Be
cause meat still commands a high price;
the effects of the partial failure of crops
in 1881 are still felt by consumers. De
cause the cattle or the hogs can be kept
until there is a market for them, and it
there is too much corn to be sold at 60
cents, there will not be too much beef or
pork, Of the crop of 1882 we consumed
for human food 150 million bushels, used
520 million to feed working ani
mals, exported or used for seced
or for spirits 167 million, and turned
780 million bushels into cattle and
hogs. Isit a curse to the country or the
farmer that we have nearly 200 million
bushels more this year to turn into meat,
or to feed our people at lower cost ?
The people of this country are able to
live better and to coamsume more food
than those of any other country because
we have enormously productive farms.
That the farmers do not greatly suf
fer, either, is sufficiently proved Dy
the rapid increase in the number of
farms. It is not altogether the worst
country in the werld to live in, as the
emigrants know.
