LETTERS FROM THE PEOPLE
The "Appeal Again Indorsed."
Editors Appeal I have intended to offer
a few comments on the situation for some
time, especially after the Hayes indorsement,
but every number of the Appeal contained
all that I cared to say; and now, I merely
write to offer you my thanks and encourage
ment for the able and, I think, appropriate
course you have pursued in the whole mat
ter thanks, most neartily. I feel your labors
will not be in vain; the truth may be stifled,
and principles perverted for a time, but fruit
will ultimately mature. You are not only
doing a positive good, but repelling much
evil, which threatens the vitals ol our institu
tions. Don't weary in holding up and ex
posing the stupendous fraud wnich cheated
our DeoDle of their chosen ruler. And the
conspiracy is not dead, it is merely in another
aisguise; watcn it anu expose it, its yuu ure
able and willing to do (would that all papers
would be faithful now). But hold on to
principle, it is our only hope not ex
pediency or policy a mere rotten foundation
The prospect is gloomy, but I trust the great
mass, and especially the intelligent, will ere
long perceive the disguised fraud and promise,
designed again to deceive them till the fet
ters could be more firmly riveted, which
seemed to-be yielding to the pressure. 1 be
lieve a short time will open many eyes that
were purblind to slight promises of justice, to
which neither I nor you gave any attention.
Soon. 1 think, the mist will blow off, and
many will see it was the shadow of a ghost
which they mistook: lor a Living reality, and,
when this host wheels again into their late
ranks, woe to the mullen stocks in their way!
Many can testify. I was not deceived nor dis
appointed at prevarications. I feared a Greek
ort'ering gifts. (Remember Troy note, Troy
was.) The more 1 have read the Appeal
tor long months before the election and alter,
till the consummation of the unequaled fraud,
and since the so-called indorsement of the
usurper the more I approve of the firm and
true course it has pursued. And I have felt
as much surprise at men of position allowing
themselves to be deceived without a cause (for
I assume they were deceived, and now or
will soon be convinced ot it) ana 1 say with
out a reason could a reflecting man build
solid hopes of great results on intimations of
a known usurper, who naa expressed no re
pentance of his crime, or reformation? look-
' , i , i i : i
ing, too, at uie surruunuxiigs ajiu circuur
cea. in onnosition to any fflorious results.
And what has been done? And echo says.
what? Cannot the best that has been done
be fairly construed under influences of policy.
expediency and demagoguery that it would
pay ? Time will soon reveal more clearly,
for evil or for good; we shall see. I am un-
able to see how the country can expect any
good from a man justly branded, as the em
bodiment of fraud. Were he to equal Wash
ington's administration, still the great crime
ot reaching the f residency as lie did snonia
tvtr be held up, as stung with thousands of
vipers, a terror to every future attempt of the
kind, and let all the people say amen.
P. S. Since penning the above I have read
the Appeal of the twenty-eighth, which
fully sustains its orthodoxy and vigor; go on.
What will be the result of the Louisiana
commission, that all do not now know?
Will eight to Reven do anvthinf? but caoture
Louisiana and her Federal officers? Where
does Hayes get authority to rule Louisiana as
a separate State ? Is that usurpation to be
continued through his reign, and exercised
at the next Presidential election ? Where is
our government drifting; or are our liberties
actually gone t
H e 3Iust Have a Pablle Library.
Editors Appeal Your article of Sunday
List concerning the establishment of a public
library calls attention to an important public
want, and should meet with a hearty re
sponse. The project has, for some weeks
past, been discussed by some halt a dozen
gentlemen with a view to founding just such
an institution, but has not taken definite
shape. The suggestions of your correspond
ent of Tuesday do not seem to me to be the
most promising of success. A library is not
a thing to be established in a few weeks, nor
can a valuable collection ot books be made in
the manner proposed. One hundred persons
might bo found who would give fifteen or
twenty volumes each, but if past experience
of these donations is worth anything as an
indication of the character of these contribu
tions, there would not be one hundred vol
umes of the whole worth cataloguing. There
must be a valuable nucleus, additions to
which must be judiciously selected by a com
petent committee. The means of procuring
this nucleus, and the manner of providing for
additions to it, are the important matters to
be discussed. Newspaper articles, while val
uable aids, will not accomplish the desired
end, and too many managers will retard
rather than promote it. Let us give the mat
ter a definite, practical shape by calling to
gether in council those who have the welfare
of the project at heart, and who are willing
to pledge their best efiorts to make it a suc

Cent pany, hot by
Jlr. L. II. Coe Cause of
About a quarter past nine o'clock laat night
the surroundings of Court square were
awakened from the usual peaceful quiet
which pervades that locality by the startling
report of a pistol, and the screams ot its vic
tim, which proceeded from the vicinity of the
corner of North Court and Second streets. In
a few seconds an immense crowd gathered
about the locality, and it was impossible to
gain any particulars of the shooting, or the
cause which led to it, beyond what
the statement of the sales-ladies of
the Willcox & Gibbs machine agency gave,
that Mr. M. M. Beach, connected with that
establishment, and also agent for the White
machine company, had been assaulted by two
men as he was closing the front doors. One
of the parties struck at him with a stick,
which the latter grasped and wrenched from
his hand, when the other party, whom Beach
recognized as a Mr. Coe, shot at him with a
pistol, the ball entering the left breast at the
nipple, and ranging around the body was ex
tracted from under the left arm bjr Dr.
Mitchell. The ladies state that the misun
derstanding grew out of the price (f 1 50)
charged for repairing a machine for Mrs.
Coe; that the latter's sister called at the
office and abused Mr. Beach about it,
upon which Mr. tJoe, accompanied by
two or three mends, called a day or two ago,
and after a word or two. struck at Mr
Beach with his fist over the show-case, then
tried to throw a large book at him, but was
prevented by parties in the office at the time,
Mr. Coe then struck at Beach with a chair
which inflicted a slight wound on Bta
Up. One of the sales-ladies, in order to pre
vent further difficulty, approached Mr. Coe
and remonstrated with him about his conduct
toward Mr. Beach, to which Mr. Coe replied
that Beach was a scoundrel, and had insulted
his wife. 1 he sales-lady explained the mis
understanding between Mr. Beach and Mrs
Coe that one dollar and a half was too small
an amount to send a collector for, and that
being one ot the rules ot the establishment,
no insult was intended. Mr. Coe then paid
the lady the amount about which the diffi
culty.had arisen, and left. Mr. Beach stated
to one of the sales-ladies that about eight
o clock; last night a man entered tne sales
room, van ting to purchase a couple of ma
chine-needles; that his manner was wild an
suspicious, so much so as to arouse Mr,
Beach's apprehensions that all was not right,
Actmg upon this suspicion, Mr. Beach extin
guished the lights and proceeded to close the
front doors when he was assaulted as above
stated. We give the outline of the difficulty as
related to us by parties who are cognizant of
the probable causes, but did not witness the
shooting, but as the matter will probably be
investigated we await the result.
Since writing the above a friend of Mr. Coe
states that the difficulty grew out ot the in
suiting manner in which Mrs. Coe was treat
ed last Tuesday when consulting with the
agents about her sewing-machine, which had
recently been not satisfactorily repaired. Mr,
Coe, we learn, is in the city, and does not
seek to avoid arrest; on the contrary, is ready
and willing to have the matter thoroughly in

J. J. Murnhv's version of the difficulty be
tween him and myself, as appeared in yester
day's Appeal, did not contain one word of
truth trom beginning to end. Ihe truth is
this: Lie came to my store drunk, and used
language so vulgar and profane, as to annoy
myself and customers, that I ordered him
out. When he demanded more liquor, he
said he intended to shoot Mr. Nelson Bill
and wanted to prime himself for the act. On
my refusing to give him the liquor he redou
bled his abuse of me,, and I put him out of
my store. He then drew a pistol, which 1
took from him and then escorted him nearly
to his home. I returned and closed my store,
to avoid lurther trouble. Alter aiming him
self anew, he came back to my door and re
newed his abuse of me in the most shameful
manner using language to vile for any ears
but his own. This he kept up, kicking and
pounding my door, and threatening my life
until 1 could endure it no longer, when 1 lei r.
by the rear door of my store, flanked him.
wrenched his pistol from his hand, and again
took him home. After entering his gate he
drew another revolver and discharged hve
shots at me, one taking effect. During the
whole time 1 never struck a blow, my object
being to get rid ot his abuse. I he truth ot
the above will be vouched tor by D. F. Jack
son, J. F. Dawson, Antony Griffin, Hardin
Wilson, John Aldrich and Mr. Boyd. I was
neither drunk nor deranged, and I am too
well known to need any vindication of my
character, but Mr. Murphy's statement is too
talse and one-sided tor me to pass unnoticed,

Dr. Schenck's Standard Heme
The standard remedies for all diseases of
the lungs are Schenck's pulmonic syrup,
Schenck s seaweed tonic, and Sahenck's man
drake pills, and if taken before the lungs are
destroyed, a speedy cure is effected.
To these three medicines Dr. Schenck, of
Philadelphia, owes his unnvaled success in
the treatment of pulmonary diseases.
The pulmonic syrup ripens the morbid
matter in the lungs; nature throws it off by
an easy expectoration, for when the phlegm
or matter is ripe a slight cough will throw it
olT, the patient has rest, and the lungs begin
To enable the pulmonic syrup to do this,
Schenck's mandrake pills and Schenck's sea
weed tonic must be freely used to cleanse the
stomach and liver. Schenck's mandrake
pills act on the liver, removing all obstruc
tions, relax the gall bladder, the bile starts
freely, and the liver is soon relieved.
Schenck's seaweed tonic is a gentle stimu
lant and alterative; the alkalie of which it is
composed mixes with the food and prevents
sounng. It assists the digestion by toning
up the stomach to a healthy condition, so
that the food and the pulmonic syrup will
make good blood; then the lungs heal, and
the patient will surely get well if care is taken
to prevent fresh cold.
All who wish to consult Dr. Schenck, either
personally or by letter, can do so at his prin
cipal office, corner of SLxth and Arch streets,
Philadelphia, every Monday.
Schenck's medicines are sold by all drug
gists throughout the country.
