Hoiirr A. rarsons, Jr., ' - Editor THURSDAY, NOV. 24, 1881. Entered at RmowAY, Pa. MAIL MATTEK. THE PoRT-OFFlCR AT , A8 SECOND CLASS Cheap rostasre. Philadelphia Trens. Fostage-Ueneral James has made the most Important report of the year. Any one of his four propositions a cheap money order, a reorganization of the railway mall service, a reduc tion of the salaries of postmasters, or two cent letter postage would have made his report remarkable. The four make it unexampled. In it Mr. James has added one more to the two great reports in the history of the department one of which reorgan ized the postal service under Kendall, and the other brought about uniform letter postage thlrtv years ago. The time is auspicious for the one change proposed by Mr. James, which gives edge to all the rest, cheap postage, which brings reform home to every man's pocketbook and every woman's portemonnaie, and which proposes to declare a dividend ou the results of practical economy, and give the people on every letter mailed a cent out of every three hitherto taken from their pockets. The proposition scores at once the measure of Mr. James' reforms and tne extravagance he uprooted. He has worked no miracle. For five years every candid observer has known that efficiency, honesty and BKiii were all that were needed to make the change from three-cent to two-cent letter postace possible, and Mr. James is well within bounds in declaring that the Department, with the aid of Congress, can present to the country in 1884 two-cent letter postage as the result of a Republican adminis tration of the Post Office Department. The change involves a deficiency little Targer than the normal loss of the Post Office Department five years ago, antl no more serious than was faced when three-cent postatre was intro duced In 1851. Existing reforms have reduced the estimated deficiency of the Department for the next fiscal year to $920,077, upon a revenue of $42,501,722. But a single item in these revenues, that from full-rate letter pos- tage, will be affected by this change, mis judging from the tables In the re pori lor isHO, the present report comes unaccompanied by tables is not over $24,000,000. The receipts for J68U were $34,315,479, and of these 94 per cent., or $31,494,120 were derived from postage stamps, stamped envel opes, newspaper wrappers and postal carus, including the smaller but still considerable receipts from foreigu malls.. The revenue received on local matter and the other sources men noneci, whose rate woutd not be changed by reducing letter postage to two ceuts, aggregated in 1880 over $12, wu.uuu, so that the revenues which have been actually affected in 1880 by me proposeu cuange was about $ 19, wu.vuu. m the fiscal year 1883 i ...... oi me postal revenue affected would, therefore, not be over 5,000,000, probably under this sum anu two-cent Jotter postage would bring a deficit of f 8,000,000. 'rge part, at least one-half, of this deficit could be left to the inevit able Increase in mail matter which woiua joiiow this reduction in a few years, so that the deficit which a pro- 10111 administration would be ealled vu u meet Dy its economy would be from $4,000,000 to $5,000,000. Mr, James points out where this saving could be made without entering Into details. The mails are carried wholly uy passenger trains, and in 1880, the payment of the Department to the railroads were six per cent, of the en tire revenue of all railroads from pas. ocugers iramc. The proportion is tne same now; but no sane man sun. poses that it costs the railroads nearly .'ue-aijEieentn as much to move the mans as to do all their passenger busi- ness. bince 1868, the amount paid to postmasters has increased out of pro. portion 10 tne work done and while the number of postmasters has but little more than doubled, their salaries Lave kept pace with the iucome of the Department. Reductions in salaries and a redistribution of railway mail pay would more than meet half the necessary deficit. If an addition to rates on second, third, und fourth-class uianer proves needed to meet tne rest, the public sentiment' of the country will be Inclined ' to support a step which would add to the efficiency and increase tbe benefits of the Federal o iue many. The Republicans will have a clear majority in the coming House, not withstanding the loss of one member from New York. One hundred and forty-eight straight Republicans were elected on November 2, and in tbe aara month one of that number, Evarts W; Farr, of New Hampshire, died;, and the vacancy thus created most of the altaanao-makers failed to take account of. Since then a Repub lican was elected in his place, so that even with Astor's defeat, the Repub licans stilt number 147, or just a ma jority. -In this county the Republicans are Happy because tbey whipped the Dem ocrats; tbe Democrats are consoled by tbe fact that they are second beet; the Greenbackers are happy because they are ahead, of the prohibitionists; and the prohibitionists may point with pride t their largely increased vote ver last year.

A lot of low, mean, little, sniveling newspapers, who know nothing more than to Ape the editorial wind and bombast of a few corrupt metropolitan Bhcets, like curs that follow the larg est dog, are attempting to attack At torney General MacVeagh. As he is the only public man in Pennsylvania who has succeeded, with honesty, In the past quarter of a century, to large and substantial honors, we are proud as Pennsylvanlans to sustain and de fend the Attorney General, so long as his record Is as spotless as It is now. Politically opposed by his own rela tives, with no clique nor corrupt power to back him, Wayne Mac Veagh has risen to high office and responsibility in the administration of the affairs of the nation. Where, in all Pennsylvania, is the name of a better man than he? Pennsylvania should be proud of him. Slnoe the time of Buchanan she has not had one man whose voice was heard in the halls of national legislation as a leader. The South has her great men; the East send her statesmen; whose elo quence thrills and electrifies the land New York has her Conkllng and her Tilden men of talent and power; Ohio had her Garfield; Maine sends her Blaine; and Pennsylvania what? Alas! the scroll of publlo fame has been a stranger to her sons for many years. True, she has had power in helping to regulate the affairs of the nation; but it is the power of political machinery, and not the honest strength of statesmanship and learn ing. Why Is tins? It is because our national offices are represented by the tools of men who rule our state. It is because no man, of honest principles and liberal and independent ideas, dare offer himself to the people for of fice, with any hope of success. God knows, we would not even have the poor honor of MacVeagh had not the noble Garfield reached down and picked him out from amongst us Had MacVeagh dared to come out for office, however, ho would have been frowned down by that great political power whose shadow has so long kept Pennsylvania's talent and statesman' ship in tbe dark. But Garfield, far more discerning than unappreciative Pennsylvania, saw his ability and worth, and the whole country know the result. As for these curs who are barking at the Attorney General's heels, let them howl. The air is always full of noise, and a dog's howl more or less will not affect it. We place as much confidence in MacVeagh's law educ- atiou aud learning as iri"any other man's, and it is evident that all other Pennsylvanlans do. Let Pennsyl van la stand by her son, the first to do her honor for many -ears. Let us stand by him for his worth, for hon esty, and hi the hope of throttling any power that attempts to crush out good men. Frank E. Clark, a clergyman of Portland, Me., has begun a popular movement in that city foi the sup pression of objectional juvenile litera ture by an address in which lie estl mated that Portland has 12.000 readers of this stuff, of which 6,000 are chil dren. This statement, which makes more than every other child and every other adult in Portland a reader of this noxious trasb, is a pretty liberal one. The number of habitual readers, even in a new England community, is less than one would expect; but whatever the number, the evil is great. These books are issued by the hundred thousand, and are sold on every street corner in every city in the land; but their suppression, or the prohibition of their circulation, will do no good unless their place is supplied. Bad as these books are, they are better, as every antiquarian knows, than like literature of past centuries. Here, as in other social problems, the tendency is upward, and the object of good men shouldjbe to aid the uplift, not merely by suppressing bad literature but by providing good. Unfortu nately, the problem of providiug good and at the same time interesting lit erature for the uneducated is not yet solved. Philadelphia Press. A Cranky Miser Robbed of $30,000, Recently we published an item about one Jesse Baldwin, residing near Youngstown, Ohio, taking $17,- 000 in bonds to Washington and get ting gold therefor. He was mighty cranky at the time, and would have the gold, refusing anything else, He got the coveted metal, lugged it home and put it Jin an old safe in his house, where fully as much more of the same material was stored safely hid away from the haunts of industry. Monday night a gang of burglars, evidently professionals, paid the home of the eccentric Jesse a business visit, and when they left from 30,000 to $40,000 of the miser's gold went with them and they rode n his finest carriage behind his best team. When the safe was exploded the noise awakened the family, but the robbers bad securely locked all doors in the house, thus securing ample time to get the treasure before tbe aroused sleepers could intrude upon them. Baldwin offers $1,000 for the capture of the thieves and the money. His course at Washington wiw an open bid for robbers and every sensible person expected they would accept.

The following is a verbatim report of an interesting passage between Secretary Biaiue and Mr. Scoville, la the Gulteau trial: Q. Do you know Colonel Hooper, of the Republican Committee. A. Yes. Q. Did you ever say to him that Guiteau was to have a consulship? A. Never In the world. I never re member saying a word to him about it or he to me. Q. Did you make any remark at the time of, or immediately after the shooting, when It was, as to the men tal condition of Guiteau? A, I have no recollection of it. THE CONKLINQ-GARFIELD CONTRO VERSY REVIVED. What was the condition of the Re publican party as to unanimity and harmony for six weeks before the shooting of the President? A. (after a pause.) There were some dissen sions in it. tj Tuey were considerable, were they not? A. Yes, sir. Q. They created a good deal of ex citement in the country? A. I should not say in the country. Q. I mean among the people. A The dissension was largely local. There were differences between the President and some members of the party about some matters in New York. Q. They were agitated in the press all over the country? A. They were commented upon. Q. I wish you would state briefly to the jury the substance of these dissen sions here in Washington and in New York as a matter of evidence. I refer to the differences that culminated in the resignation of tbe Senators from New York. A. I do not correctly know the scope of the question. Q. Were there any such trouble? A. Oh, yes; there were very sharp difference of opinion. U. were t tie re not acts as well as opinions? A. Yes. Q. What did they consist of? A. The act that created the difference. Q . Tli ere was more than one act in that connection? A. If you will specify any particular one I will give my opinion upon it. Q,. Perhaps if I call your attention to the conduct of certain individuals vou can answer. How was it with Senator Conklin, of New York? Did he do anything or say anything that led to that trouble that fanned the difference and promoted it? A. What difference? Laughter. Q. In the Republican party? A. About what? Tbe witness I do not exactly see the point about which the counsel de sires me to testify. I have no reluc tance to testify, ond I hope he will not consider my answer in that way. The President had appointed Mr. Robert son as Collector of Customs at New York, aud on that and the propriety of it there grew up a feeling between hira and his Administration and the Senator from New York. Mr. Scoville Now if you will go a little further and state what happened after that disagreement grew up. What resulted from it? The witness I am sure that I can make a political speech of two hours and a half on the subject. Laughter. If you ask specific questions, I will answer them. Q. What was done, if anything, by the Senators from New York after tho disagreement with the Administra tion? Did they resign? A. They re signed yes, sir. Q. When was that? A. I think that the resignation wits on the 28th of May. Of that I will not be posi tive. (To the District Attorney) Am I correct? The District Attorney It was earlier than that about the loth. The prisoner (quietly) The ICth of May. What was the cause of their resigning? A. Discontent with the President's action in appointing Robertson. H. wnat loiiowed immediately alter in relatiou to the election of their successor? A. I am very certain that I did not see what the counsel desires me to tes tify about. Mr. Davidge. In your cross-exami nation, Mr. Scoville, you are not at liberty to ask leadinir questions. You ought to question more specifically. Tne witness. 11 you ask any ques tion specifically I will answer it. Mr. Hcovuie dm not consiaerame feeling arise for several days here, in the Senate and in Washington over that matter of disagreement? A. Yes. o. That resulted in tne resignation of those Senators, did it not? A. The wituess nodded assent. Q. The next step was to elect suc cessors in New York? Another nod. Q. And the matter came before the Legislature and Resulted in a struggle there? Another nod. Q. How long did that continue? A. That struggle continued until long after the President was shot. Q. And commenced immediately after the resignation? A. Yes. u. Did that strusrcie generate or keep up the feeling that existed, and that caused the resignations? Mr. Davidge objected on the ground that the examination was taking too wide a ranee, but after a brief state ment by Mr. Scoville, withdrew the objection in order to save time. Mr. Scoville. When did that contest terminate at Albany? The witness, I think that tne ter mination of it my recollection would be that it was about the 20th or 21st of July. It may haye been later. I did not change my mind witu it. ine reason 1 did not was that l was very deeply absorbed and engrossed in the condition of the President. I can say to counsel that after the President was shot the political canvass give me as little concern and elicited irom me as little observation as any individual in the country. Mr. Scoville. jno doubt or mat. The witness. I took no part whatever in the contest in the New York Senate. STALWARTS AND HALF-BREEDS. Mr. Scoville: I never understood that you did. I did not question you with that idea. I wish to know if those factions in the Republican party were classified under certain heads, and if so, what were they denomin ated? Answer. I believe that they were commonly designated as "Stal warts" and "Half-Breeds." Q. Did not this term stalwart date back to the political campaign last year, including Grant, Logan and Conkline? Were they not designated stulwarts, and was not that term used in lowz A. Yes; tne term is older than tbat. a. Did. it not become prominent before the people in connection with the Chicago convention? A. It was used there. Q, As applicable to tne delegates that stood by Grant was it not? There were 80o I think. A. Oh yes. I believe Guiteau rerers to 111s term "Stalwart'' in some of his letters? A. I believe he does. Q. What would anyone understand properly from the use of that word? A. Well, if Counsel is wishing a chapter in political history to form part of the testimony, It ought to be a correct one. The term "Stalwart" originated before that. I Invented the term myself. (Laughter). Q. Then you are just the man we want to have explain it. When Guiteau, in his letters or speeches in the latter part of 1880. and first of 1881, refers to himself as a "Stalwart," what did he mean? A. I suppose he meant to class himself with the personal supporters of General Grant. Q. Did not these supiiorters, after Garfield was nominated, become his supporters? A. Naturally. Q. Was it not a fact? A. Of course. They were Republicans, and all Re publicans supported Garfield. Q. The Stalwarts worked for the election of Garfield? A. Very heart ily and very cordially. Q. Yes. sir. I was one of them. What was understood by the Half Breeds in New York? A. They in cluded all the Republicans in New York that were not included among the Stalwarts. Laughter. (1. Of course, if vou did not know you need not answer. A. If Senator Conk I ing spoke, he must have spoken about some particular thing. Q. I do not want any long disquisi tion. 1 simply ask you to state to tne jury the substance of the trouble in tbe Republican party. Q. Then there were only two divis ions there? A. Yes. Q. To what branch did the person annointed as Collector belonir? A. He was classed, in the nomenclature or JNew York, wtth tne hair breeds. Q. To what branch did Senator Conkliug belong? A. He was under stood to be a "stalwart." Mr. Scoville. That is all. The Pennsylvania Campaign. ITS LESSONS AS READ BY A NEW YORK NEWSPAPER. From the N. Y. Herald of 14th. As the details of the recent cam paigu in Pennsylvania are received they show more and more the signif icance of the recent independent move ment in that State. A bold and rather eccentric politician proclaims himself an opponent of the ring, an uounced his candidacy for a State office, makes several speeches aud re ceives from forty-five to fifty thousand votes. The candidate himself appears to have had very few elements o personal popularity; to have been re garded as rather a busy, noisy person, anxious for notoriety, who injured his canvass by a series of reckless statements in reference to public men which he could not confirm. There is little doubt that if this independent movement had been under a strong leadership it would have given the State to tbe Democrats. Thatsolargea vote should have been cast for Wolfe shows the existance of a sentiment in Pennsylvania which Republican managers must recognize or give up their control over the State. The Re publican party In Pennsylvania has always been in a large majority. It has been the banner State of the East. The existance of this majority has given the leaders audacity. They have done things in public ways and as political methods which bring shame upon our institutions. The Pardon of Kemble, the Philadelphia ring, the street car monopolies and hundreds of other matters mark the record of a rule which must come to an end. Unless tho whole Republican system is changed in Pennsylvania the good people of that great and patient State will inllict upon the Republican party an irretrievable defeat. "Don't know half their Value." "They cured me of Ague, Bilious ness and Kidney Complaint, as recom mended.

They did them so much good I continued their use until they were cured. That is why I say you do not know half the value of Hop Bitters, and do not recommend them high enough." B,. Rochester, N. Y.

Thh Sun's light is for mankind and womankind of every sort; but Its genial warmth is for the good, while It pour hot discomfort on the blistering baoka of the persistently wicked. The Sun of 1808 was a newspaper of a new kind. It discarded many of the forms, and a multitude of the super fluous words and phrases of anoient journalism. It undertook to report la a fresh, succinct, unconventional way all the news of the world, omitting HO event of human Interest, and commenr ting upon affiiirs wtth the fearlessness of absolute independence. The uc cess of this experiment was the success of The Sun. It effected a permanent change in the style of American news papers. Every important journal est ablished in this country in the dozen years past has been modelled after The Sun. Every Important journal already existing has been modified and bettered by the force of JThe Run's example. The Hun of 1882 will be the same outspoken, truthtelling, and Interest- tiijr newspaper. By a liberal use of the means which an auunuaut prosperity atlords, wo shall make it better than ever before We shall print all the news, putUng it Into readable shape, and measuring its importance, not by the traditional yardstick, but by its real interest to the people. Distance from Printing House Square is not the first consideration with The Sun. Whenever anything happens worth reporting we get the particulars, whether it happens it Brooklyn or in Bokhara. In politics we have decided opinions; and are accustomed to express them iu language that can be understood. We say wnat we tnluK ubout men ana events. That habit Is the only secret of The Sun's political course. The Weekly Sun gathers Into eight pages the best mutter of Miff seven dully Issues. An Agricultural Department of of unequalled merli, full market reports, aud a liberal propor tion of litarury, scientific, and domestic intelligence complete The Weekly Sun, and make it tho best newspaper for the farmer's household that wad ever printed. Who does not read and like Tub Sunday Sun, each number of which is a Goleondu of Interesting literature,, with the best poetry of the day, prose every line worth reading, news, humor matter enough to fill a good sized book, and infinitely more varied and ciilertaning than any book, big or lit tle? if our idea of what a newspaper should be pleases you, send for Tim Sun.
