" It is new the right and the duty of a
lawyer te bring te the notice of the peo
ple, who elect the judges, every instance
of what lie believes te be corruption or
partisanship. Ne class of the commu
nity ought te be allowed freer scope in
the expression or publication of opinions
as te the capacity, impartiality or integ
rity of judges than members of the bar."
Juilyr Sluir.vrnetV opinion.
The Disbarment Case.
The news of most interest te everyeue
te-day is that of the reversal of the order
of the court of Lancaster county disbar
ring the editors of this journal. Te them
it is hardly of mere consequence than te
any ether citizen and especially te any
ether editor. If it had been declared by
the supreme court te be the law that an
editor may net, while he is a member of
the liar, criticise the judicial conduct of
the judge upon the bench, that decision
would of its own force have driven from
the bar every editor who chose te keep
himself f ree te discharge in an honest and
independent way his duty te the public.
We, as the particular editors con
cerning whom this test had been
made and this law pronounced, would
net have been mere thoroughly deprived
of our offices as lawyers than our fellow
editors who are lawyers would have been,
for they could net witli self-respect have
held two offices whose duties had been
thus declared te In: irreconcilable.
Xer would the people have fared bet
ter by the gag thus placed upon the class
of the community te whom they espe
cially leek for political leadership and
instruction. The bar is the read taken
by the generality of well educated young
men who have political aspirations. With
such a sword suspended ever their heads
in the hands of the judges, net a lawyer
could havomeunted the stump or opened
Ids lips even in private without apprehen
sion. Fer the understandings of judges
are as many and various as that of men,
and sometimes inarvelensly poer: and
who can tell te what they would lead
them, guided by malice or stupidity i
Of course this decision or the supreme
court is what everyone expected. Com
mon sense alone was needed te feel sure
that it could net be otherwise. As Gon Gen
eral Hancock says, and we all knew, in
this age and in this country we move for
ward, net backward. And what a retro
grade step, indeed, would it have been te
put the press and the bar under the heel
of the bench, and te declare that, how
ever weak and wicked the man who puts
en the crmiuc.it should protect him from
the shafts of an honest public criticism !
Fer the judges of this court, in this
hour of their humiliation, we have no
word of further reproach. We feel. as
we have said, that their act was net
against us se much as against all their
fellow citizens. This disbarment order,
which has caused us inconvenience, ex
pense and less, hail for us no mor
tification, for we felt that we had
done nothing for which our con
sciences repryed but that en
the contrary we could net have done
less than we did with self-approval. The
comment te which Judge Patterson took
exception was fair and truthful. We
scarcely knew, in fact, what there was
in it that was resented by him. It did
net charge him with wrong-doing indi
vidually and apart from the court. Its
utmost sting was in its accusation that
the court was restrained by political bias
from inquiring into and resenting a gross
imposition which we declared had
been practiced upon it by certain
members of its bar whom we named. In
this indictment of the court Judge Liv
ingston was as fully included as Judge
Patterson, and there was the same rea
son for both te feel affronted. We de
net knew what malign influence drew
Judge. Patterson en te attempt se
arbitrary and lawless an exercise of
power as was his ridiculous bull against
us: nor wherefore Judge Livingston,
who recognized its felly, permitted him
self te concur in it. Hut such as it is it
steed, and is new overthrown.
It served a useful purpose, and it is
well that it was done. It has .secured
an authoritative exposition of the rela
tions of the bar, the liencli and the press.
It has served te erect a sign-beard upon
which these who held judicial power
may read its limits; and these who
wield the editorial pen may find its re
striction; and the lawyer may knew his
privileges and lespensibililies; while the
people are assured of the preservation of
their liberty in a free press, in free
speech and in a respected judiciarv.
All's well that ends well."
Villainy Afoot.
Closely treading en the heels of the
report that Garfield is te withdraw and
Grant is te take his place comes a revival
of the rumor that after the Indiana
election has presaged Republican defeat
the Republican governors of doubtful
Northern states are te assemble their
legislatures and cheese Republican
electors. It is claimed that they have
the power te de this under the constitu
tion, and as Garfield said in 1S70, they
argue "Having tnc cards in
our hands wouldn't we be feels
net te play them." Every Northern
state, except Xew Jersey and Indiana,
happens at present te have a Republican
governor, and it is claimed that with
this advantage they can make sure, by
appealing te the legislatures, of the elec
toral choice of Grant, and that he is " a
strong man" who being thus constitu
tionally chosen would seat himself.
We have no doubt that the men who
engineered and carried through the Iwld
theft of the presidency in 187C-77 are
quite capable of undertaking the scheme
new proposed. Rut we very much doubt
if they would run the tremendous risks
involved for the slender chances of its
success. It is te he remembered that the
electoral vote is te lie finally counted in
the presence of both branches of Con Cen
gres3. They arc both Democratic. They
will net consent te the subversion of the
will and intention of the people if it can
lie prevented by constitutional means.
Such means can be found. They will be
Almest a Disaster.
The Pan-Presbyteriance alliance which
had been getting along se amiably for
ten days, in Philadelphia, came well
nigh splitting en a rock in the twilight
of its sessions. The geed brethren who
had assembled te forget their denomina
tional differences in common zeal for the
holy cause of Christianity had a re
freshing season of counsel, of harmony,
and of brotherhood. They were se in
spired with it that upon nearingthe close
Rev. Dr. Philip Schaff, a leading spirit in
the alliance, enthusiastically moved the
singing of that grand old sacred song
" Praise Ged from whom all blessings
flew,"' and with common accord the
throng joined in it. That is all the throng
joined in it except the delegates and
members of the United Presbyterian
church U. P. for short. The U. P.'s
de net object te praising Ged, nor does
their orthodoxy allow them te doubt
that from Him all blessings flew. But
the popular version of that acknowledg
ment in rhyme is net among the inspired
songs which they sing. Accordingly they
were mute, but the echoes of the mul
titude's praise hadnet died away when
one of the offended U. P.'s found tongue
te resent the wrong done his denomina
tion in proposing and singing their dox dex dox
elogy. Up te this point ail the common
exercises of the alliance had been se
carefully arranged as te give offense te
none, but at the last minute it looked as
if there was te be a breach ever the un
happy interruption of the peaceful pro pre
gramme of happy harmony. Luckily
Dr. Schaff was able te explain that some
U. P. brother had assented te his proposi preposi
tion before, it was made, and luckily
some ether brother enabled the alliance
te escape the brewing storm by success
fully moving te pass en te some ether
subject. Otherwise the spectacle might
have been presented of that alliance
going te pieces in bitter confusion ever
the matter of singing" Praise Ged from
whom all blessings Hew." of such
weakness are mortal men. '
Tin: Republican clubs in this state
seem te be acting under instructions
from headquarters. The Invincibles, of
Philadelphia, went te Conshohocken
en .Saturday night, visited a Dem

as though it seemed a prearranged
scheme, several of them reached up and
tore down the picture of General Han
cock that was pasted up en the wall.
Several notices of forthcoming Demo
cratic meetings were also hung up about
the room, and they, tee, were tern down

Hew unfortunate that General Garfield
went te Louisiana. His mere presence
.was a participation in the contest, and by
his mere presence, without referring te
what he did, he encouraged aud helped te
arrange a case for his party, and, having
done this, he returned te Washington and
sat as one of the judges te decide it. The
majority en every vote of the electoral
commission was just one. His was that
vote, and all the responsibility of deciding
a case which he helped te prepare rests
upon him. Mr. Oreesbeck at Cincinnati

actual citizens of the republic, the candi
date who will be true te the genius of our
institutions, te the best interests of the
nation and our common humanity and

Gen. Jack Casement, of Paincsvillc, O.,
who has been classed as a supporter of
Garfield, is for Hancock. The general,
although a Republican, has net changed
his opinion that Garfield's career in Con
gress was marked by much crookedness.
Adelphus Berst,who was p--uncntly
identified with the erganiziAtaH)ne of
the first Republican clubsjHpPrYerk,
and who has voted the Republican ticket
ever since, has withdrawn from the Re
publican executive cemmittee and an
nounced his intention te vote for Hancock.
One of the objections he urges against
GarGeld is that he is a hypocrite.
A Republican politician met ex-Judge
S. D. Merris in Brooklyn, and said that he
had a friend who was willing te bet $1,000
that Garfield would be the next president.
"I have $1,000," said Mr. Merris, "te bet
that Hancock will be the next president,
and if you will bring me a taker I will give
yen $100 for your trouble." 3Ir. Merris
has net yet heard from the Republican.
Solen B. Smith, secretary of the Repub
lican central committee of New Yerk, of.
fcred te bet $2,500 te $3,000 that Garfield
would carry New Yerk state in November.
3Ir. Charles W. McCune, the Buffalomcm Buffalemcm
ber of the Democratic state committee, at
once accepted the wager and proposed that
the money should be then put up in the
shape of checks. Mr. Smith thought that
the checks should be certified, and prom prem
ised te meet Mr. McCune in the Heffman
house en Friday evening. Mr. McCuue
was en baud with his money at the ap
pointed hour, but Mr. Smith did net keep
his engagement.

A well-known and wealthy man an
nounced at a club in Philadelphia that he
had offered te bet $10,000 even that Han
cock would be elected. This man is net
much of a Democrat or Republican ; he
bets te win. He could net find a Republi
can who would bet with him except at
enormous odds. Next morning he met
Geerge G. Pierie, who is secretary of the
Commercial Exchange of Philadelphia,
and also financial editor of the Philadel
phia Kerth American. " Pierie," said he,
"I'll put up $10,010 as a neel, and I'll give
you $30 if you'll find takers, that Han
cock will be elected."

Pierie is an active, ardent Republican.
He has a large acquaintance with the
brokers en 'Change. He immediately
went te them and said that here was a bona
fide chance te form a peel te win $10,000.
He labored zealously for two hours, and in
all that time he could net find a Republi
can broker who had faith enough in Gar
field's election te be one of a party te make
up the peel. The feeling among them
seemed te be that Garfield's chance of elec
tion was altogether tee small te warrant
risking any money in it, Mr. Pierie re
turned te the gentleman and sorrowfully
confessed, "the Republicans were net bet

West. They first located in Osberno City,
Osberne county, Kan., where Sirs. Horn Hern
ing made many true and sincere friends
who will hear of her decease with sadness.
Her disposition was naturallv a verv
pleasant one, while her sympathy for
ethers in trouble was easily awakened,

DlMppelntment, Disgust and Disorder.
In accordance with arrangements made
and duly announced, the several Republi
can clubs of this city assembled en East
King street Saturday evening for the pur
pose of marching te the Republican meet
ing at Rohrerstown. The Examiner Rxve
notice that the clubs would march te Roh
rerstown, instead of going in the cars, as
Cel. Wm. L. Peiper desired te entertain
the young men at his residence situated
between the two points. The prospect of a
free lunch at the hospitable mansion of Mr.
Peiper was sufficient inducement te se
eure a large turnout of men and boys, net
less than 450 of whom were willing te
make a six mile walk for a square meal
and free beer. There was a geed deal of
trouble in arranging the order of march,
the Yeung Men's club and the Veterans,
each wanting te lead the column. The
war-worn ets had te give way and the
handsome young men led the advance te
the lunch-table, the "colored troops"
bringing up the rear. On rciching Cel.
Pciper's, it was found that the Examiner's
premise of a free lunch was a pious fraud
set afloat for the purpose of getting to
gether a big crowd, and that Cel. Peiper
had made no arraugemente te entertain
400 or 500 hungry and thirsty ward politi
cians. We are told he did the best he
could, under the circumstances, and
"treated" the colonels, majors and cap
tains of the clubs. This, however, only
aggravated the thirsty rank and file, who
were told that the set out would cemprise
ten barrels or beer, te say nothing of the
mera substantial things that they saw be
fore them "in their mind." When the
sad reality burst upon them they hurried
en pell-mell te Rohrcrstewn, each appar
ently intent en being the first te reach the
nearest tavern. Kauffman's tavern was
first taken possession of and a scene of the
wildest confusion followed. Everybody
drank at the temporary bars erected for
the occasion, and only a few paid for their
tipple. Quarrels arose between the city
and country DcGeIycrites, who pummelled
each ether right bravelv.
A large crowd visited Dietrich's taveui,
steki whisky by the bottle, refused te pay
for their drams, tore down and trampled
under feet the large portrait of General
Hancock that hung in the bar-room, and
tore into shreds the large pesters announc
ing Democratic meetings at different
The clubs returned te the city at a late
hour in a terribly demoralized condition,
utterly disgusted with the fraud that had
been practiced upon them, and fatigued
with their long and unprofitable tramp.
There arc rumors that appear te be well
founded, that the trouble has net yet ended;
that the Yets declare that they will no
longer play second fiddle te the Yeung
Men's club, composed as it is of callow
youth, a large percentage of whom are net
twenty-one years old and are net entitled
te vote. As an illustration of the juvenil
ity of the crowd, we may mention that in
the Seventh ward club alone there were
ticenty-tJirec non-voters, whose names are
known. ind were written down by persons
well acquainted witti them, while thev
were standing in line.
The misbehavior of the men who visited
Dietrich's is the mere indefensible for the
fact that Mr. Dietrich had made every
preparation te treat the visitors courteously
putting himself te the trouble of illumina
ting his house en the occasion.
The Lecal Tobacco .Market.
There has been very considerable activ
ity in our local maiket durinrthe nast few
days. Net less than 800 cases of 1870 leaf
has been disposed of at geed figures.
iheugii the prices are kept private, it is
said the advance in first-class goods has
been from 3 te 4 ccr.ts per pound, and that
outside of Lancaster but few lets of really
geed leaf arc te be found in the county.
First-class goods are eagerly sought by
manufacturers, many of whom buy directly
from the packer instead of from the job
ber, as heretofore. Medium and inferior
goods de net go off se readily, and ic is be
lieved that holders of such goods are a lit
tle tee "steep" in their views, and that
they will net dispose of their packings
until they come down a peg or two.
Of the new crop little can be added te
what was said last week : the crop is
housed ; mucji of it very fine, much of it
very small ; much of it badly damaged by
the flea and ether insects, and a little of it
cut by hail. It is all en the poles and ap
pears te oe curing well, tuc weather being
very favorable for that purpose. Wc hear
no complaint of pole-sweat or ether in
juries te the crop except these above
noticed. Of course it is tee early as yet
te state what the outcome may be, but the
present show is geed. A few lets that
were cut early are reported te be ready for
stripping, but these are of course excep
tional lets.
