For the first time in the history of tAk county Republicanism a regularly constituted eounty convention com posed of legally elected delegates fimu every district (Benzinger excepted) in the county, was held last Tuesday in the Court House. The custom, here tofore prevailing, of holding the con vention in a back office on court week, with self-constituted delegates having gradually grown into disfavor among the people. Nor is this all, from this time the party in the county will grow if regular organization, is kept up and persistent work done for .party weal. There were mistake made in Tuesday's convention of which it .is uot necessary for us to speak at this time. There was one wrong iiguinst which we protest in the name of justice and right, w ith the assurance 'that if on another occasion the same gags are trot in use some thing more than a warning will be the answer. The motion to nominate two candidates at a time for contmis sinner was entirely in the interest of Mr. Carman who had but eight dele gates in the convention; two from Mill-tone; two from fr'pring Creek; two from St. Marys; und two from Highland. But by the unprecedented giig of a double vote the record gives him or 7 more than he was fairly entitled to. There was nothing fair about this and the men who laid the conspiracy did it not in the interest of tlio party but to further selfish ends, fit was wrong and no excuse will serve to erase the error. TLe mat ter was sprung, as all gags of conven tions are, and voted for by the dele gates without a chance for considera tion. The error will pass now, but a repetition of tho offense will be laid at the door of those daring to inaugurate it, and no amount of washing will cleanse tho guilty parties. We arc nil Republicans, and as a party of justice and equality we should stand lirm as tho everlasting hills for fair pfay. This is plain talk and we do , not wish to be misunderstood.. Neither is there a single pang of unsatisfied personal ambition in tiie protest. Deeply sensible of tho gallant support of our friends wo owe tlieiu from thenceforth a debt of friendship and respect which must and will be lusting. And which we can never hope to re- jiay.- We shall support with willing ness the nominees of the convention first, last, and all thn time, and urge all personal friends to do tho same. For the ticket nominated is worthy of our support, every man on it, and no Republican should scratch a name on account of any error of nomination tbat may liavo been made. In our next issue a brief sketch of each can didate will be given. Then work for tho whole ticket from now to- Nov. 8, and then vote it entire: Baily, Oster bout, Morey, Penfield, Carman, Aldrich, and Chamberlain. Cured of Drinking. "A young friend of mine was cured of an insatiable thirst for liquor, ivbkh had so prostrated him that ho was un able to do any business. He was en tirely cured by the use of Hop Bitters. It allayed all that burning thirst: took away the appetite for liquor; made bis nerves steady, and he has re mained a sober and steady man for more than two years, and has no desiro to return to bis cups; I know of a number of others that have been cured of driuking by it.1' From a leading R. R Official, Chicago, III. Times. Subscribe now for The Advo- . miri wad vmir own naner duiinar evenings. The Creature, almro too Creator. Not In a spirit of fault finding or grumbling, but . as a plain duty Is the article following penned. Be lieving that Republican principles are to the best Interest of our county, State, and Nation, we shall light the battles of the faith in the warfare for their supremacy. The first and most glorious of all is tho respect for the will of the majority. The origin of all authority is with the people ut the polls. Any move that takes from the people their right to chooso Is an as sumption of power not to be tolerated, and against which wo propose at all times to enter our solemn protest. To come to the point. In the closing minutes of the county convention, aided by the hurry of the delegates to make the train, a motion was made and carried to allow tho newly elected chairman of the county committee to choose said committee. As tho action of the majority of the convention we ought not to criticise it but as a wrong precedent our duty is plain Now that the Elk county Republicans have emersred from the back-olllce" system, we need to correct the abuses of power that have so long existed in thecounty to the end that we may grow and In crease as a party. The present chair man may not abuse the unwarranted power he wields through this uncon sidered action of the convention, but human nature is weak, and personal preference stronir. Whether this be so or not no man should have such power placed in bis hands. The question of who serves as committeemen is not of nidi great importance if they are rep resentee Rcpublicnusand men whom tiie districts they represent want But under the custom that previ.il In this county of giving the county com mittee authority to select the delegate to the state convention, it would b an casv matter under this motion to have a delegate sent who would most woefully misrepresent us. Another tiling in this connection, the bite con vention neglected to adopt rules for the government of the pnrty in the county. This matter will now be among the first duties of the new com mittee. Another thing "we are in formed that but oue member will now be appointed in each district, where it has been customary to have three. Until the committee meets and re duces the nu moer we believe three members should be appointed, as in the absence of rules custom is the com nion law. In practice the committee should be elected and then select its officers. The motion of the conven tion makes the chairman and lie creates the committee. Thus the creature, becomes the creator a very unusual tiling in the economy of nature, and a very unwise thing in the realm of politics. Bluino to Retire. The announcement just made pub lic that Mr. Blaine will retire as Sec retary of State, will be learned with feelings of regret by a large majority, we have no doubt, of tho voters of the country. Although but a few months In the office ol the President's chief adviser his acts have been marked by wonderful insight into state-craft ond showed the work of a master. At no time in his brilliant career bus Secre tary Blaine had a gaeater share of the public esteem. He will be Ciesar or nothing; the idea of playing second fiddle to Conkling, Grant, or any one else being entirely foreign to his na ture. The people of the country de sire him to remain, President Arthur requests him to remain, and yet with Conkling, or perhaps Grant holding an iuferior position, and yet sharing in a greater degree the confidence of the President, is entirely to the dis taste of Blaine. There was but one Garfield, there la but one Blaine. In 1884 wo will not forget him. In 1885 he will hove the forming of a cabinet, if the voice of the people is heard in the Republican National Convention. ftuSteau Iutlicted. Washington, October 4. Dr. D. S. Lamb, who performed tho autopsy upon the la.to President Garfield, ex plained to the grand jury yesterday, with tho aid of a diagram, the track of the wound through the- President's body; Mr. Edward L. DuBarry, a new witness, who was present at the depot and witnessed the shooting, also testified. With this witness the grand jury concluded their investigation. Their presentment will come down this afternoon and the indictment will be brought into court to-morrow. About 1 o'clock this afternoon the grand jury took a recess, and the fore man, Mr. Churchman, proceeded to theoffieeof the District Attorney and placed in Colonel Corkiiill's hands u presentment against Charles J. Guiteau for the murder of James A. Garfield, President of tho United States, by wounding him with a bul let fired from a pistol in the hands of Charles J. Guiteau, at the Baltimore aud Potomac depot, on or about the second day of July, A. D. 188L "Individuals may wear for a time the glory of our institutions, but they carry it not to the grave with them. Like raindrops from heaven, they may pass through the circle of the shining bow and add to its lustre, but when tbey have suuk iu the earth again the proud arch still spans the sky and shines gloriously on."

General Rllas M. Bully, Republican candidate for state treasurer, is in this city. The General looks a trifle older and stouter titan he did In the old war times when he was colonel of the 8th Pennsylvania Reserves, but is a young man yet and full of vigor. No better candidate could possibly have been selected for the state treas urcrsbip than General Baily. He is honest, bravo, thoroughly competent and a man that every good Republican In tho State can vote lor without fear of afterward regretting it. If ever a niau deserved well of his fellow. eitiiseiiH for brave and honorable pub lic service, quietly and modestly ren dered, General Baily Is that man. lucre was a time lias It gone by? when it was felt to be an honor to vote for a mau with a military record like General Baily's. Ho faced death on many hard fought battlefields aud Hover flinched. He never shirked a duty or a danger. A thorough soldier, he never sought preferment, either civil or military, but duriug tho. war rose hgilmately by his merit, aud at f its close quietly laid aside his sword and resumed his civil occupation in his quiet home among the hills of Fayette county, where ho was sought out and selected as a proper and com petent man to have the custody of the treasure of our State. The office sought the man, not the man the office. If the Republican convention bad selected some man of less ability and merit than General Baily there might possibly huvo been some excuse, for a third candidate in this campaign; but, in view of the Republican candidate and his record, the candidacy of Mr. Wolfe, supported by the ilissotistlcd, disaffected and disappoi nted, is uncalled for and improper. It will, however. lie an uphill business to attempt to make the people believe that they are doing an improper or a dangerous tiling in voting for a man like Baily. Of course the ouly objection that they can bring forward against him is the old threadbare one of "Oh, he's Cam eron's choice-wasjselccted by the ring" and is a representative of "bossism." That there is no truth iu this is of course known to every man who has full knowledge of the facts, but many have not tills knowledge, and it is con sequently hoped that such may be drawn or frightened out of the party lines by the frantic appeals of the small but would-be select, company of po litical saints who of late seem to be assuming to represent all the virtue in the Republican party, or perhaps In both parties, in the city and State. If an objectionable man, by bard work and energy happens to secure a nomination, a bowl is at once raised by these people. "There! See. the kind of man 'the machine' is forcing upon the people!'1 When, on the contrary, a first-class man, unexcept ionable in every respect, thoroughly honest, honorable and competent is selected as a candidate for any office, then it would seem as if this truly good combination should be rejoiced and join in the general effort to elect such a man, to show their approval of that class of candidates. Not at all. They will abuse tbat man rather Worse than the other, before they are done with him and swear by all that is great and good that he is infinitely more dangerous than the other fellow. We don't profess to know the inside working of Senator Cameron's mind, but it must make a pretty tough job of it for him to work for the success of the Republican party in this State if he and his friends try, in doing it, to satisfy the whims of all these irrceon cilablcs. But Senator Cameron and every other man who lias the good of the grand old Republican party at heart, and who has ever worked for its success, lias long since ascertained tbat there is no use iu trying to satisfy men whose purpose is not to bo satis fied, but who are Republicans, Demo crats, Reformers, Independents, any thing, by turns, that will give them notoriety, iniluence, office or control. A few deep, 'calculating, scheming men start the howl and all the restless, dissatisfied, unsatisfied, cranky ele ments in the State or in the nation rush to their standard. It was so in the Garfield campaign and probably always'will be so to a greateror lessex tent. While there is probably no remedy for the organization of such political menageries, yet their work may be as dangerous as Guiteuu's bullet and the only way to success fully meetand defeat them is to show the people plainly tiie great danger of listening to their councils or follow ing their advice. Infinitely better that here and there a mistake should be made or even a dishonest man steal a few dollars, or a Republican "boss', endure for a time, rather than that Republican defeat should bo secured and control gained by these howling dervishes of politics. Nothing suits the Democrats better than these efforts to weaken or defeat Republican suc cess. It is a safe rule for every good Republican to always net exactly opjiosito to all the advico kindly be stowed upon him or his party by De mocratic alleged "Independent" frier.ds, The complacency with which the modern Democratic or "Inde pendent" either cau ladle out advice, wholesale for Republicans, can only be equaled In c illossul coolness by uu Arctic iceberg. Ail tbat is necessary to Republican success In this city and Stale this fall is common souse, hard work and a deaf ear to all misrepresen tations which may be mudu by the opponents of the Republican party. Adhere to the party, vote tho regular Republican ticket and vou will vote right und secure victory. Just received new stock of fall clothing at the New York Store, Ridgway, Pa. . .

A Republicans we are in favor of any proper and well-considered reform, cither in the government of the Nation, the State, municipality or county, and we court miKgci-tionn to any or all of these ends, and only ask that in their advocacy well-estalv-liehed safeguards shall not be harshly supplanted by experiments. The Ad ministration. of President Garfield has set the right example in this direction, and while firmly adhering to the prin ciples and better practices of the great party which twilled it into existence, it yet insists upon faithfulness ami honesty in every branch of the public service That the bullet of an assassin should not Inter-Wipt this work. It should be .pursued .while its author lives, and beyond his life, if through increasing misfortune it should be taken away, Hesolvcd, That the Republican party has ever been progressive and reformatory, and wlii'e realizing that nothintr in irovernmeut is wholly right we desire to he always uravu enough to seek every avenue of ap proach to the right Ut the end that all our ueople may enjoy the ever increas ing blessings of good government hekotved, That President James A.
