s y K - LANCASTER DAILY lKTELLIGENCEU. MONDaI OCTOBER 11. 1880 "prvvr- !, m-2 h- I' .1 Lancaster intelligencer., MONDAY BVBNINO. OCT. 11, 1880. Why They qalt It. It is net much wonder that old-time Republicans throughout the country the men who revere the memories of Sumner and Chase and Seward and Greeley, and wliu prefer te fellow Trum bull rather than Legan, Curtin before Cameren and Charles Francis Adams rather than Conkling touch elbows new with the supporters of Hancock. Fer it will be remembered that the pretexts upon which the Republican party first gained power have been most shame fully abandoned by it, and the very prin ciples which it espoused iu 1860 arc these which it new repudiates. A recogni tion of the just rights of local self-government and the purification of the civil service were cardinal points in the Republican national platform of 1860 ; and in order that there may be no mistake about this we quote the fourth plank of the platform adopted by the first convention which nominated Lin coln. It runs thus : 4. That the maiuteuaucc inviolate of the rights of the states, and especially of the right of each state te order and control its own domestic institutions according te its own judgment exclusively, is essential te that balance of powers en which the perfection and endurance of our political fabric depends ; and we denounce the lawless invasion by armed force of the soil of any state or ter ritory, no matter under what pretext, as among the gravest of crimes. Where can be found better Democratic doctrine than this ? Where is there an example of greater political aberration than in the present attitude of the Re publican party toward this principle V Again this same convention declared : 6. That the people justly view with alarm the reckless extravagance which pervades every department of the federal government; that a return te rigid econ omy and accountability is indispensable te arrest the systematic plunder of the pub lie treasury by favored partisans ; while the recent startling developments of frauds a.nd corruptions at the federal metropolis, show that an entire change of administra tion is imperatively demanded. It will be seen that the claim was made that frauds in the national administra tion justified an ' entire change." But what were the " startling develepements" of that day in comparison with these of the past few years? Is it any wonder that Republicans of 18S0, who believe in the principles they then proclaimed, who were patriots, for the preservation of the government in its integrity and all the just rights of the states, are new against the party which favors the centralization of power se that it may continue te be abused te keep the party in power V A I'KCULIAK lew of the "business men" of Lancaster have geed ground te fear that their business interests would be imperilled by Democratic success. Fer instance, that great business man, Dr. J. P. Wickersham, state superinten dent of public instruction, who devotes half his time te making partisan speeches and the ether half te eulogizing himself, would be irretrievably ruined by the election of a Democratic governor. The business in which he takes greatest de lightsalary and incidentals would cease; and think of the ether hearts that would ache ! the deputies, and clerks, and janitors ! Then there is our geed friend James II. Marshall, ' which is postmaster," what will become of his business if Hancock be elected? It won't be worth much ! Ancl Bill Decn and the ether patriots who manipulate the mail pouches! What of them? Alas. the places that knew them shall knew them no mere forever. And the internal revenue etlice with Collector Wiley and Deputy Eber man, and the gallant Colonel Markley, a soldier in peace and a statesman in war, and the gay Captain Stauffer, whose versatility of talent fits him for any " business" te which a geed salary and liberal fees are attached and the host of lesser lights in the revenu department what will become of there " business" when the here of Gettys burg comes ruthlessly en and upsets the magnificent system of civil service reform inaugurated by Hayes and upheld by Longstreet, Mesby and Key ! It will van ish like the airy fabric of a vision ; it will go where the woodbine twineth. Yes; there is cause for alarm among these " business men," and ethers of like character throughout the country, and it is wise of them sounding forth the Macedonian cry " come up and help ns save business." The Republican head of the-interior department gives te the public, ihe re sults of that department's investigation into the alleged census fraudsm Seuth Carolina. The result of the investigation has been te discover only that the census was taken just as fairly there as here, and that the apparently enormous in crease of population is due te the fraud ulent and careless manner in which the Republican carpet-bag marshals had taken the census of 1870. Already then it was calculated that there were only " four mere years, of geed stealing" in that state, and the carpet-bag deputies cut down the census te rob the Demo cratic party of their fair representation. The lie that the census was unduly swelled has been repeated in the Repub lican press and by their stump orators of that party, especially Conkling. They get their answer and.their quietus from an administration of their own part. It will be interesting te see hew they will all dodge any retraction of their false charges. One of the Philadelphia white lead manufacturers pasted up a notice that if Hancock were elected he would reduce his laborers wages te GO cents a day. That sort of bulldozing is making votes every day for Hancock. When a party which has been for years harping en intimidation at the Seuth and obstruc tion of the franchise shows its teeth te Northern workmen se plainly as this they need net expect that it will net be resented. Such an announcement as the mbeve is the device of a scoundrel for whom people would have much mere re spect if he would go into the political shambles and buy voles for Garfield like the -Heg' drovers and Bull-ringers, who run Lancaster county Republicanism buyjajtd sell its voters at' the primaries. m - Sexateb Eatejt, representing nearly all the mill owners of "Sew England and en their petition, introduced a bill pro viding for a commission of experts te draft a comprehensive tariff bill, ar range its details and te take this question out of our national partisan politics and settle it en business principles. It is a most excellent practical measure. It re ceived the vote of every senator Dem ocrat and Republican and is the first bill en the speaker's table te be taken up iu December, and will undoubtedly pass the Heuse by an almost unanimous vote. In the face of this Senater Eaten is en tirely justified in denouncing as " knav ish" the conduct of these who assert that the Democracy are advocating any policy or likely te adept any prejudicial te American industries. They have been in power in Congress and the result is that' industries languishing under a Republican Congress have re vived ; and if this occurred under a Democratic Heuse and Senate what is te effect a change when a Pennsylvania Democrat becomes president? Surely Pennsylvania interests are safer under him than under the Cobden free trade league's candidate and the inspiration of men like Grew, who in Congress de neunced the " odious '" protection given te the " rolling mill and cotton factory." MINOR TOPICS. As enterprising New Yerk advertiser and ''businessman" takes advantage of the latest popular hit by inserting this striking card : (mono $329, $329, $323. $323, $329. $323, :S9. tftO-fttf ,$329, SJ29,. $10,000 Baliway City (N. J.) Henda for sale at $329. The notice caught the casual glance anions ten thousand ethers in the New Yerk Herald' quintuple sheet. In accordance with the latest rapid transit plan in Brooklyn, devised under the auspices of a commission appointed by the mayor jaubscriptieu books for the cap ital stock !P?000,000, divided into 10,000 shares, were .en Saturday thrown open Within one minute after the books were opened Charles R. Flint, of the firm of William Grace fc Ce., of Wall street, en tered, and, producing twenty-seven powers of attorney, subscribed for the en tire stock of the corporation. The Intelligencer's earnest depreca tien of the local attempts te introduce par tisau views into the purely business rcla tiens of our every day life " and " te influ ence public sentiment against business in terests' for political reasons, seems te meet with the very general approbation of the "business men " of the community, as is evidenced by the recent increase of 100 copies in the large daily sales of the In telligencer ever the counter and au average daily increase of a dozen subscrib- crs during the week. Theke is far from happiness iu the Re publican camp. The capture of Garfield and the conduct of the campaign by the Grant men is admitted by the anti-Grant Republicans. Scliurz is one of the deeply disgusted. Sherman doesn't care whether Garfield is elected or net. He won't shed any tears if he is net. Blaine and his friends are working without heart. They recognize the fact of Garfield's surrender te the Grant gaug ; and while tliey will keep up appearances and de the best cam paigu work they can, none of their secret influences will be used in Garfield's be half. The worst sold man, however, of the whole let is Bill Chandler. The Eng lish language is net capable of expressing Chandler's feelings. PERSONAL. Mr. GEOUGE Bancroft, the encrable historian, will probably head the list of Hancock electors in Rhede Island. Justice Clifferd's condition continues te improve. He sat up and shaved him self yesterday. His physician said last evening that he may be expected te re sume his seat en the supreme bench in the course of a week. Dax Gardner, the circus clown, and father-in-law of the late famous actor, Edwin Adams, died of paralysis at At lantic city en Friday. He was Ci years old, the senior of the clowns and began stage life as a comic songster. General Hancock says that he has had only one application for office as yet, and that was from a man who wished te go as minister te Cerca. He had understood that every white man, en landing there, had his head taken, and he desired the op eration performed en himself. Colonel Rebert P. Deciiekt, Demo cratic candidate for auditor gcucral, spoke in Hollidaysburg en Saturday night, and at the conclusion of his address Col onel Jehn A. Lemen, his Republican op ponent, took him by the arm and intro duced him te his, friends, and afterward entertained him at his residence. Ajione the prominent Rhede Island Re publicans who have declared for Hancock arc ex-United States Senater Sprague, ex-Lieutenant-Govenier Syssen and Colonel Samuel R. Heney, of Newport. Colonel Heney writes that Hancock will be the first Democrat he ever voted for, but that it is time te fight against the sectionalism of the Republican party. The Chicago Tribune printed a para- graph stating that Alexander Mitchell the prominent banker of Milwaukee, and Marshal Field, of Chicago, are reported as converts te the Republican cause. Mr. Mitchell telegraphed the Tribune as fol fel lows : "Your paragraph this morning stating I am going te vote for Garfield, is entirely without foundation. 1 shall take great pleasure in casting my vote for Han cock and English, believing as I de that their election will best promote the welfare of the whole country." Mr. Mitchell says that Mr. Field will also support the Dem ocratic ticket. Ex-Governer Gasten deserves credit for his manly and patriotic action in with drawing from the race in his congressional district, which would, bad there been two Democrats in the field, have returned a Republican. Similar praise should be ac corded te Mr. Hazeltinc for his loyal be havior towards Congressman Miles Ress, who cietcated him m the nominating con vention of the Third New Jersey district. Such excellent examples should be imita ted in the few districts where the Demo crats arc running two candidates. Let them unite te bury the tomahawk in ther right place in the opposing Republican's scalp. World. m An Outrage. Fer the Istelligexcer. Mr. Editor : I see iu the Columbia cor respondence of the Xeie Era au account of the cuttiug clown of a Garfield pole at Prospect hill school house, Maner town ship. New I want te knew what right a schoolmaster or directors have te allow only this one kind of a pole te be put up at school houses where there are all kinds of children going net only this one but there are dozens mere in this county. A Father of Scheel-Going Ciuldui:n. BUSINESS MEN, Who De 'et Believe In Arraying Political Passions Against Business Interests. The national Democratic committee re ceived the following despatch late Saturday night from Lewis C. Cassidy : " PniLADELrniA, October 0. "Te lien. W.L. Scett: "Twenty thousand merchants, manu facturers and business men of Philadel phia arc new iu session, presided ever by Henry B. Tatham, the head of the largest house ju the country. They pretest asraiust the assertion that the business or financial interests have anything te fear from the election of General Hancock, but, en the contrary, that his election is the only way te bring peace te the whole country aud permanent prosperity te all business interests." The following was received Sunday morning : "Erie, Pa., October 10. "Te Hen. W.L. Scett: "At the business meeting here last night Judge Galbraith, of the Erie car works and the Burdctt organ company ; Orange Neble, of the Neble & Hall beilei works ; Jehn H. Bliss,pf the Erie City iron works, and a large number el business men, mechanics and laborers of the city were present at the Republican headquarters and ready te discuss the business issues. After considerable 'confusion a pretended chairman of the meeting declared the same adjourned, the business men, mechanics aud laboring men then proceeded te Scott's hall and elected J. H. Bliss, of the Erie City iron works, chairman: J. P. Harrington, of the Erie forge works ; William Henry, of the Seuth Eric iron works ; Orange No Ne ble, of the Neble & Hall boiler works, and James McCastel, vice presidents, and R. B. Brown, of the Obscner and Themas O'Brien, of the Ecening ZTcraW,sccretaries. The following resolution was unanimously adopted : " ' Resolved, That we, the busiuess men of Eric, assembled without distinction of parly, are decidedly opposed te the parti san efforts new being made by politicians te involve the business and manufacturing interests of this city and of the' country at large iu this presidential canvass ; and, further, that we most earnestly deprecate a continuance of sectional prejudices and hatred between the North anil Seuth, the mere partial cessation of which has recent ly se largely iucrcascd our Northern trade, commerce and manufactures, and in no place mere than in our own city, as shown by its daily increasing trade with the Southern people ' "Urcat indignation is lelt licie among the mechanics aud laboring men at the at tempt made by Republican politicians, under the guise of business meetings, te bulldoze aud frighten them. The whole talk here among the mechanics and work men is about the fact that in the calls for business meetings by the Republicans the mechanics and laboring men have been te tally ignored." I1LOOOSHED IN INDIANA. Political Discussion Leading te ?.lttrder Charges hiiiI Ceuutcrciiurgcs. Political excitement has become intense in Indiana aud culminated en Saturday iu two serious affrays at Shclbyville and one at Evansville. It is diflicut te get the ical facts, as se much political bias exists that the stories of the occurrences differ widely. At Shelbyvillc the Rcpublicans'and Grccn backcrs were both holding meetings. The former was addressed by Gen. Ben Har rison and the latter by Dr. De. La Matyr. In the afternoon a number of lights took place in saloons between Republiaus and Democrats. At one of them Sheriff Me Me Cerkle -interfered, and was leading away Ed. Kennedy, a young man who was prin cipal in one of the fights, when a second disturbance arose, in which several shots were fired, no of which struck Sheriff Mc Cerklc in the breast and he died. Kenne dy was accused of firing the fatal shot. McCorkle being ;i Democrat and Kennedy a Republican the most bitter feeling is aroused, and parties arc cut seeking Ken nedy, who will doubtless be lynched if found. Deputy Sheriff Addison Lee was badly bruised in the course of the affray. In Evansville Edward Reuse, a river pilot, and Oscar Shorter, a colored man, had a sheeting affray last night, in which both were wounded, Reuse in the breast and Shorter in the head. It is said Reuse began the quarrel and fired twice at Shor ter before the latter drew his pistol. Shor ter then fired twice at Reuse, hitting him in the breast and also badly wounding Themas Rewdcn, one of Reuse's friends. Shorter went te jail and gave himself up. He was followed by a mob ami yesterday was secretly removed te avoid lynching. Reuse's weuud is net necessarily fatal. A dispatch from Evansville, Indiana, te the Gazette says : Last night Ed. Mills, a rough, kuecked down an old man of sixty six years in Nicholas Kissel's saloon. Hissel erdcrsd Mills out of the saloon, whereupon the latter drew a knife and plunged it into Hissel's breast, inflicting a wound from which he died last-night. Mills escaped. STAT; ITEMS C'has.

Tim T.ittnr -nm struck en the head and seriously if net fa-) tally mjured. Considerable indignation is felt against the accused. CBAZED BT KEK DEATH. A Yeung Preacher' Faaeral Strmea and Sadden Insanity. Incoherence at the Faaeral et the Toens Weman ha Loved Making Havoc iu his Hoaeeheld, and Then Attacking Strangers. The following dispatch from Reading te the New Yerk Sun relates te a Re formed clergyman of middle age well well kuewn in this city. Rev. Shultz some tcu years age resided here for quite a period, during which he frequently attended the exercises of F. & M. college, his alma mater, though at that time he showed evidences of "queerness" threatening te break out into some such manifestations us are described herein : There was great excitement iu this city (Reading) this (Saturday) evening when it was learned that the Rev. James A. Shultz, a well-known young minister of the Ketermeu church, had been picked up iu the streets by the police after he had received a severe beating in a fight en the leading thoroughfare of the city. His identity was at first unknown. His en counter was with several roughs and fish ermen. At the police station it was found that the man had been fearfully cut en the head. He was placed in a cell as a com men offender, but shortly afterward it was icarncu mat tuc pnsener was a minister, who te-day aud yesterday has shown man ifestatiens of insanity. It appears that Mr. Shultz yesterday preached the sermon at the funeral of a young lady. The funeral took place in St. Paul's Reformed church, Reading. Repert says that Mr. Shultz held the young lady in very high estimation, and that he was warmly attached te her. Her 'dying re quest was that he should preach at her funeral. The Rev. Dr. Bausman, the regular pastor of the church, occupied the pulpit also duriug the funeral. Mr. Shultz made some very strange remarks during his discourse. He speke of his associations among ladies, and his various acquain tances, bringing in allusions very foreign te a funeral discourse. Dr. Bausman in terrupted the young minister, and the ser men was speedily closed. The Rev. Mr. Shultz then went te his beaiding house aud behaved like a person out of his mind. He made all sorts of re el ienleus requests, piled the fleer of his study high with books, aud requested his friends te make nrcneratiens for the com ing of seven ministers. This evening he ran out of the house, and coming down town, get into an altercation with a number of roughs who did net knew him. He was very belligerent, and was seen kuecked in to the gutter by a fisherman. The minis ter was severely beaten, aud among ether injuries, received a blew en the head from a billy. After his identity was established at the police station Mr. Shultz was carried home. His rooms were found te be in terrible disorder. He had smashed all the furniture, pictures, ornaments and ether decorations. His watch, eyeglasses and slippers were found among he debris. Moreover, he had played havoc throughout the entire house during the absence of the family. At a late hour te-night he was still un conscious from the effects of the blew he received en the head from the billy in the hands of etic of the men he attacked en the street. It is learned that during his discourse at the funeral he alluded te sev eral carriage drives he had had with sev eral lady friends. The assembled mourn ers were shocked, and a number arose and went out. Finally his rambling discourse was stepped. Mrs. Gchman, with whom Mr. Shultz bearded, says that when she came home and found the minister iu his frenzy he chased her aud a neighbor, a woman, quite a distance, and struck at her with a stick, lie then ran back, and meet ing a man en the sidewalk, the minister knocked him clean iute the gutter. Mr. Shultz attacked a number of inoffensive people, battering them considerably. Fi nally he encountered the gang of roughs, who treated him as said. At a late hour te-night he was net expected te recover. This recalls a similar occurrence in which a clergyman was concerned. In Laurin burg, X. C, en the 6th inst., Miss Alice Skirr, one of the beauties of the place became a raving .maniac en account of the action of her' lever, a young clergyman, the Rev. JehifRattcrling. He recently determined te go te China as a missionary. She refused te go with him, and when he announced his intention te go without her she became insane. .

Minnie Slattery, a servant, fainted en the third fleer, and was thrown out of the window by Mary Hass ler, another servant, receiving probably fatal injuries. The latter escaped by jump ing. Total less, $12,000; partially insured. The verdict of the coroner's jury in the case of the men killed by the collision en the New Yerk & New England railroad near Willimantic is that the railroad com pany is exonerated from blame and that the responsibility for the accident rests upon the dead conductor of the freight train, who took his train out of Williman tic against orders, wheu it should have- been held. Christopher Baldwin, a teamster, who lives at Spartansburg, was engaged in haul ing lumber te the village. He was about two miles and a half from home, plodding along in the slew way that a team neces sarily moves when fully leaded. In com pany with him was another teamster with lumber. The first intimation of anything out of the usual course things, was the dis covery by the last mentioned that the wheels of the wagon were crushing the life out of Mr. Baldwin. They passed directly ever his chest. The supposition is that he cither stumbled and fell, or was sud denly taken with a fit, which caused him te fall. ItAILKOAD ACCIDENT.

A Budget of News Frem Hart. Our Regular Correspondence. This neighborhood is considerably afflict ed with a tendency te erysipelas, cores that under ordinary circumstances would be of ue account assume serious aspects, and have in many cases caused consider able uneasiness and less of time. Wednesday evening Oct., 6, was an even ing of incidents iu the village of George town. At the residence of S. A. Hughes, esq., a wedding of mere than ordinary moment was iu progress. The bride being a daughter of V. Hughes (Miss Sal lie) and the bridegroom W. Newton Phenegar, of Brooklyn, N. Y., formerly a resident of Bart township In front of the saddler shop, a " word fight" eccured between the youths of the neighborhood in which some eight or ten weie concerned.- At first it was thought te be a political row, but as all the partici pants were "Credit Mebilicr" admirers, this could net be the case. After trying te fathom the difficulty for abet one hour, some one of the party let the "cat out of the bag" and le ! a girl was at the bottom. The Geed Tcmplais held their meeting in the hall ever the saddler shop ; and the M. E. meeting was in progress oppo site Mr. Hughes's ; while between these two points a band of calathumpians were tuning their instruments for a serenade. Taking the performance altogether it was the best variety show we have ever wit nessed, and delineated in full the human characteristics. On Saturday evening, the Dili inst., the Republicans held a meeting at Green Tree. The various clubs met iu this village te form a precession, aud were marshaled areuud by the Paradise band and county Committeeman Jehn Keen, of Bart. The crown was rather a motley one, composed of Democrats, boys, and an occasional 32'J-er. After the De Gelycr pavement and Credit Mebilicr admirers had passed, the Hancock and English club of Bart formed for parade te their place of meeting, Nine Points, and seen strung out a line line composed of something ever 120 torches. Part of Sadsbury clubs formed the pro pre cession aud the whole moved in geed order out of the village, aud past the Grecu Tree within 25 feet of the stand erected for the Republican speakers. Our march was through a gauntlet of Republicans at this point and our cars were greeted with many curses and jeers, but our bevs were tee geed humored te notice insults and moved quietly ou while the Paradise band played the tune they have been for sometime practicing for the Republicans after Nev. 2. The Dead March when the last Han cock torch had passed the stand, the De Golyer contractors, gave three cheers for Garfield, which was responded te by the Hancock club with an energy that bodes no geed te the $329 borrowers, in old Bart. The roll was opened at the Points and increased from 75 te 125. all voters. The next club meeting will be in Georgetown en Saturday, the lGth. After the club business was transacted the meeting was addressed by J. D. Harrar, of Sadsbury ; J. M. Walker, esq., of Lancaster, and a short and meaning speech by Jehn W. Ruttcr, of Sadsbury. The success of the effort en the part of the Hancock men te erganize a club in Republican Bart, has been se unprecedented that we may with some certainty predict almost a total anni hilation of the Republicans' former ma jority. Democrats here mean business en election day, and when Bart Democrats put forth their effort something has te go or break. That is, the Republican majority has te go by the beard or break all tesniash ; aud the sound of a Hancock cheer from the threats of 125 voters in line gives back an echo that sounds very much like " smash" te the opposition. Just tell a Republican in this township that the Bart Hancock club is going te meet for parade and his countcnance falls from 329 te 0 in short order. Serious Sheeting Accident. Yesterday afternoon a serious accident befclJehn Fisher a young man of this city, son of Raphael Fisher, hotel keeper, poe JNertu irrince street, tie was in com pany of his cousin Frederick Funk, near McCall's Ferry, hunting ground-hogs. On coming up the hill en the state read from the ferry, the young men had some dis- pute about the gun and Fisher threw the gun which was leaded, ever the fence en the roadside. In some way the piece was discharged and the contents entered Fish er's side and abdomen, inflicting a painful and dangerous wound. Fisher was placed upon a wagon belonging te Frank Greff and taken te Funk's home, some two miles from the place of accident. Drs, Yest, Dcaver and Gatchell were hurriedly sent for te attend the wounded man and he is reported this morning te be in a very critical condition. His father who is engineer in ene of the cotton mills left Lancaster this morning te attend him. JOUXS. HAICKKBUEB'S DATH. President eC One of Twe New YerK City Hank Wkese Charters Hear Date or the Last Century. One of the Sunday papers of New Yerk has the following obituary notice of the late deceased brother of A. J. and H. W. Harberger, of this city: Jehn S. Harberger, president of the Manhattan company bank, 40 Wall street, died at his country residence, at Plainfield N.-J., Saturday morning. His illness was of short duration. He left the bank for the List time a week age, Thursday, suffer ing from a cold, which he thought he had contracted while crossing the ferry. Ma larial fever developed and proved fatal. Mr. Harberger was a native of Philadel phia, and was sixty-one years of age. He came te this city when a young man, and began his career in Wall street as a clerk in the United States bank: Among his fellow clerks in that bank were James M. Morrison, who resigned the presidency of the Manhattan company a year age ; Henry F. Vail, president of the Bank of Com merce, and C. W. Duer, formerly presi dent of the Bank of the State of New Yerk. Mr. Harberger remained in the United States bank until its affairs were wound up, and in 1842 accepted a position in the Manhattan company, which was offered him by his former fellow clerk, Mr. Morrison, who was then cashier of the bank. His first position was that of assistant transfer clerk. In 1857 he was made assistant cashier, and in 1860 was promoted te be cashier, the position having been made va cant by the death of Caleb O. Halsted. After discharging the duties of that office for nineteen years he was elected president a year age the first of the present mouth. Mr. Morrison, whose health bad become seriously impaired, resigned from that position. A gentleman who has been in the .em ploy of the bank for thirty years said that he never knew Mr. Harberger te lese his temper or speak harshly te any of his assistants, even under the most trying cir cumstances: Mr. Harberger leaves a wife, two daughter and a son. The bank of which he was president is the second eldest in the city, and one of two the charters of which bear date of the last century. A PERILOUS SITUATION. A Herse Kuns Through Doer. a Saleen Glass Graybill Bickhart drove into the city from Lititz, this morning, with a fine gray horse hitched te a buggy. As he went te .turn from East Chestnut street into North Queen an engine scared the herse and he dashed forward, his driver almost losing control of him. Bickhart held en and the herse plunged down street until he was al most beyond his driver's power te stay his flight. The scraping of the buggy wheel? en the railroad track further affrighted him, and when opposite Fred. Waltz's McGraun house, partly te step him and in part te avoid collision with a vehicle standing there, Bickhart pulled him in toward the curb. The herse breke for the saloon deer, crashed out the windows en either side of the double deer and struck the fleer with his front feet, breaking quite a hole in the fleer, through which went one of bis legs, badly skinning it. Beyond this and the kicking off of the dasher and a slight "barking" of Mr. Brickhart's finger, no serious damage was done. A large crowd gathered and much excitement ensued ever the novel specta cle of a herse and buggy plunging into a bar-room. As Mr. Waltz does net famish " entertainment for man and beast," the horse was promptly taken out. The Park Baccs.

We had a Republican pole-raising at our place en Saturday morning. Se far as the pole was concerned it was a success and the pole is an elegant one, but unfortu nately in putting the flag en they put it en Union down, and the pole leans toward Canada. Se far as the meeting was concerned it was a perfect failure in numbers, only 60 being en parade, se says ene who counted. The whole crowd. Republicans and Democrats, did net number ever 300. The whole thing was something like the man who sheared the hog and get mere noise than wool. m Ephrata News. Our Kcgular Correspondence.

On Saturday a sneak thief entered the Fountain Inn, Seuth Queen street, and ascending te the second story entered the sleeping apartments and stele from one of the boarders his best coat, vest and necktie. Frem' ethers were stolen a pair of shoes, suspenders, cuffs and ether wear. The robbery was committed in the day time. priTacnvE fire; Large JHaanUctatfeic HaUdinc Burned and Machinery Deatrejed-UJweUing Jpn Sunday evening, between 7 and 8 o'clock, the large frame buildinr sitnateri en Plum street, north of Marien alley, was discovered te be en fire and in a short time was totally destroyed. The buildin" wasever 50 feet square, two stories high" and was formerly owned by Swartzwelder & Merrow as a sash factory and planing mill. After the failure of the firm the property was purchased by Frank Shreder, who recently bad the powerful engine and ether valuable machinery in the building put in thorough repair aud fitted up for manufacturing purposes. It had been rented and would have been put in opera tion within a few days. The machinery is almost entirely destroyed. The less is fully $5,000 and only partly covered by in surance, there being a $2,200 policy in the Phoenix company, of Hartferd, Conn., of which Messrs. Bausman &' Burns are agents, of which $1,000 is en the build-, ing and $1,200 en the machinery ; and a policy of $1,000 in the Fire Association of Philadelphia, of which B F. Shenk ii agent, $450 being en the building"aBei $550 en the machinery. --v- A two-story double frame dsfaUssw house en the southeast corner e&jmsi street and Marien alley, owned by Gerge Geoble, took fire from the burning factory and was se badly injured that it will have te be tern down. The heuse was occupied by Frank Dennelly and Geerge W. Sny der and their families. .Most of the furni ture was saved, in a damaged condition, and carried te places of safety. We learn that they had no insurance en their furni ture. "These tenants have had a rather rough experience. Last spring, en the very day -Mr. Snyder moved into the house, a frame building adjoining was set en fire aud burned down, and the back building of his residence was considerably damaged. Mr. Gecble has an insurance of $500 in the Delaware Mutual, of which Jehn Zimmerman is agent, and which will move than cover the less. The cellar of a heuse a few doers south of the fire was flooded by the bursting of a section of hose, that poured a stream of water directly through the grate in the front wall. The damage was net heavy. The fire was of course caused by incen diarism, there having been no ene connect ed with the works iu the building during the day. Within a short time past half a dozen frame buildings in this neighbor hood have been set ou lire and destroyed. The firemen were promptly en the ground and did geed work in preventing the spread of the flames te adjacent prep-, crties. Several former attempts have been made te burn the rash factory. About two years age a pane of glass was broken from ene of the windows, and a ball of cotton waste saturated with coal oil was thrown into the building, but the waste burned out without setting fire te the building. Seme months age a keg, filled with shavings saturated with coal oil, was found secreted in the building. The keg was re moved before the incendiary had an op portunity of applying the match. During the fire some ene took $10 in money from a bureau belonging te Geerge W. Snyder, while it was being removed te a place of safely ; and Mrs. Frank Donnel Dennel ly had a shawl stolen while her goods were being removed. The Democratic Ilcjra Parade. On Saturday evening the juvenile Dem ocrats of the city, numbering iu all about six hundred, assembled together in Centre Square, which bore quite an animated ap pearance ; the torches lighting up the scene with lurid flame, drums beating with mar tial tone and handsomely equipped young sters hurrying hither and thither te take their places in the column, which moved with orderly precision about half past seven. Many of the clubs were regularly- organized and carried transparen cies bristling with patriotic in scriptions that declared the firm adhesion' of the little chaps te the Democratic doc trines of their sires. The paraders all car ried teichcs, and the greater portion of them were fully equipped, the Seventh ward lads looking especially handsome in their neat uniform. The parade visited every ward in the city, and all along the route the boys, whose ages ranged from six years te sixteen, were enthusiastically welcomed. There was a modest display of fireworks from the ranks, aud at many points the arrival of the parade was greet ed witii haudsome illumination, the boys acknowledging the compliment by vocifer ous cheers. The boys are growing up in the way thev should ire. and there is no danger of their departing from it when they shall have arrived at man's estate. With their fathers they arc solid for Han cock.
