A 'long petition lias been presented to the Borough Council praying that the cows may he permitted to run at large by the repeal of the ordinance which provides for a pound keeper and the taking in of stray cattle. It is cer tainly not for the good of tiie town to have this cow nuisance again let loose upon our streets. The time is still fresh in Iho memory of our citi zens when it was no unusual thing to see from a dozen to three or four dozen head of stock on our streets. In those halcyon days it was no uncom mon thing for a man without a foot of land to raise from fifteen to twenty head of cattle and pasture them on the streets or in his neighbors' gardens. There is generally two sides to a ease. And in this case no one mi tiers hard ship by having the cattle kept ofl' the streets, while a great deal of damage was done by the prowling cattle under the former system. The argument, is made by those in favor of cows run ning, that the poor men who own cows depend on their eows for keeping their families, and that to shut them up involves great hardship and ex pense. No account is taken of thedam age done to the gardens, trees, and other property of those cipially poor men wlio own no cows by the depredation of the running pest. During the whole of the la- t year pound master Wepscl only cinpoumlcd nine cows be longing to t be it h'eli.i of the Borough, or a total ci! -1 p those cow owning cit izens whose cattle were taken in, of SIS.O!). Now it would be much I eiter fur the citizens of Hidgway to keep or pay for keeping, ami pasturing of all cows and other cattle belonging to men who are so poor that it is a hardship for them to keep their own cattle. Tin citizens of the l.'oniugn could pay for tic; keeping of till the cattle iu tlu Horouyli, rather than pay the d im age of their nti:ni!ig at large, and save money iu the opera! ion. A 11 other thing many people in the Borough -.vbo own cows are in favor of the law as it. stands. This subject will he dis cussed more ut length us the ooniliit proccdes.

AN EMPHATIC DENUNCIATION OF BOSS nUI.R AND AUTHUR'8 POLICY IN PENNSYLVANIA APPOINTMENTS WHY UK RKEUSKS TO CONTRIBUTE TO CAMPAIGN FUNDS. (Plillndelphla Press.) Washington, June 1. The follow ing is a copy of Major George W. Merrick's letter to the Postmaster General resigning the Wellsboro postmasters-hip; WELLsnono, PA., May SO, 1982. lion. Timothy O. Jfowe, Pontmaster Orncrnl Washington, D. C: I herewith have the honor for tlie reasons following to tender my resig nation as postmaster at Wellsboro, Tioga County, Pennsylvania. On the twenty-fourth day of May, at Philadelphia, I received from the Independent Republican Convention, the nomination of Secretary of Inter- mil affairs for the State of Pennsylva nia. I then gave but a qualified assent to that action for tlie reason that I thought it my duty to first resign my ollle.o under tlie General Government. That duty performed, I shall uncoil -ditionnlly accept the nomination and thenceforth do what I honorably can toward the triumph of the objects of that Convention. While I hold my commission from President Hayes of civil service order No. 1, celebrity I feel that my part iu the Convention would probably meet your approval in being in conformity with the views contained in a recent letter hy Hon. Frank Hatton, First Assistant Postmaster-General to the Postmaster of Cincinnati, Ohio. The objects of that Convention meets my earne-t approval, and I can con ceive no good reason, so fur as they re late to the State cf Pennsylvania, why they should not meet the approval of the Department. In its broader aspect, however, I can readily see how it might incur the disapproval of the Department. Iu the platform adopted, "We ilc- noiitice the system which makes "pa troniige" and "spoils" out of public ollicc-; we denounce the boss rule which, when tninely endured, makes leaders into autocrats ami reduces! the mass of citizenship into political bon dage; wo demand, instead of Insolence, proscription and tyranny of bossism," the five and consjicntious exercise of private judgment In political affairs, we declare our purpose t if take up the work which fell when Garfield fell, and we deplore the over vhelming evidence presented to us iu Penn sylvania that the calamity of his as sas-sinntion lias leen followed by an oveithrow of tlic:-e reforms in the hand; of his successor. Iu other words we hold that, the per version of the Civil Service the busi ness of self-government from the l be priii'-iples on which business, pub lic or private, ought to be managed, into a sort of lofti-ry or vast gambling establishment in which the ollleers of tlie country are used as prizes to be bestowed by a tule not even npproxim a'.ing the fa i mesa of chance but by pure favoritism' for past or expected services, generally of an unworthy characlcr, is a thing no longer to be simply deplored lii'.t resisted. The tveeiit flagrant Instances orthost wronys in IVnusyl vaiiin! are easily 1 raccal !c to their murcea at Washing ton, where "Cairn ronism" tinges the whole field of appointive power. In Pennsylvania the term stands for tlie bead and front of the whole infamous I spoils system, and Camerouism in Washington is more odious than iu Pennsylvania, because more danger ous. These politic:! cilmes, for such Ihcy ere, bavearouscil the hostility, mid will arouse the determined opposition of riht-minde, men everywhere. hen one of tlie two seats of Pennsyl vania iu the United States Semi I e rep resents nothing hut a dull autocratic pi rsoi-alism instead of the people of the State, and the great State itself is nothing but an imperial satraphy handed down from lather to son, is it not time for the people to as'.t why they t ball not be represented by two United States Senators? 11 is the Chicago conspiracy "drawn a prize iu the lottery of assassination" by which its accidental power is to be solidiilcd? The rule understood to he adopted by the Hon. Frank Hatton in the Post Oiiice Department is to "weed out .half-breeds." If this is the Dead Sea fruit to Avhich we are invited as the result of tiie lamented Garfield's death, should it surprise lis if the slain cry aloud from the earth? The revolution against these evils is but initial in 1'eunsylviiuia. Like condition produce like results tlirough many States. The people will not "take up arms," there is a better way, but if the evils of misgoverunient thus go on there will be such a sowing of dragon's te th that even the politi cal sagacity of a Stalwart Administra tion may be surprise'd at the crop that will spring up. Politics must have foundations, but "polil leal society is fluid not solid, and any particle may become the cental of a new movement. What the true man dreams to-day may to-morrow become the resolutions of con veiitions." Men profoundly move for just cause, with juire motives and the courage of their con vt ui ions may defy the calculations of autocratic demagogues, though en trenched in iower. These are no ideal abstractions, nor is this a mere sentimental movement of visionary idealists, nor a movement intended to put one set of bosse-s out and another set in. It Is planted on the deep ground of the essential pre;, nerval ion of the Commonwealth, and will forever destroy "bossism" and all their works by a radical reform of the civil service by legislation. Holding tlie views indicated above, and intending to advocate them from the platform, it would at least be inde licate, if not inconsistent and improper, to retain my present relations to the Administration; and beside the labor imposed by my nomination will besucli as to preclude my giving proper per sonal supervision to the duties of the office: therefore, I hereby respectfully resign my commission as postmaster at this place, and will esteem it al'uvor if my fcuecessor can be at o need named. I remain, very respectfully, Geo. W. Mi.kkcik, Postmaster. REPUBLICAN PRESS OPINIONS. A TICKET OK YOU N1 MEN. From The Phtlailelphln Leitnor (I ml.) The Republican Independents gave many signs of sure faith In their mis sion. There was not only full force or numbers, but lntene force of feeling, and superabounilliig enthusiasm. The first thing to be said about this ticket collectively is, that it is composed en tirely of men of clean public and pri vate reputation; and, next, that the nominees are nearly all in the vigor of young manhood. A PPHEADINO CLOTTP. From The Philadelphia Telceraiili (In'l. Itep.) Here Is the work of tho Independent Republican Convention the first real Republican Convention which has met In the Htate for, lo! these many years. And what will the people do about ii? Mr. Cameron and his poor dupes will find that out now right soon, sooner Indeed, than they expect There is no mistaking the spirit of the hour to thoso who want to see clearly The cloud of a little while ago, then no bigger than a man's hand, lias rapidly spread from East to West and from North to South until its threatening blackness covers the whole Pentisyl vanhi horizon, and the rumbling and muttering of the comlngstorm Is heard on every side. DKI'ICAT 11KTTF.lt THAN RUHHKXPF.il, From Tho Wllkcslmrro Record of tho Times (Hep.) To stacd hy the Independent ticket means a Republican .defeat for the year, and it may mean a Democratic Legislature two years hence, but this Is a hundred times better than an un conditional surrender to tho personal politics that has made Republicanism iu Pennsylvania a mockery', and sub jugated good men Into political slavery A party that is reduced lo this condi tion is not worth saving. It has lost all power for public usefulness, and become a mere machine to execute the pleasure and contribute to tiie profits of individuals, mohi: roi'i'L.VT. than Tin-: hkgular 'J'K'KKT, From The T.nne.i.str r New Era (Rep.) He is blind to tiie signs of the limes who docs not see that if the bosses persist Iu kceplngtheir already muti lated ticket in the Held tne Republi can ticket nominated on Wednesday will carry with it tlie popular senti ment and a plurality vote of the party. KIVK C.VXlHIlATKs'mrT oxi.y kioiit I.l-.fJH. From Tlie West .Chester Village lleeunt (Hep.) The lnd( pend nts wi l probably "point with pride" to tiie fact that they have only eight legs among their five men, and have made a complete "soldier ticket" except the c.iudidate for Judge of the supreme Court. A SfitOXU TH'icirr. From 'I he I2asloa Free Press; Hep.) It is a strong ticket from beginning to end. It is a thoroughly Republican ticket, composed of men of the highest character in public and private Mai ion. Tlie conven'ion rose to the renulre ments of reform and proved that it eou'd select an exceptionally good ticket that must command the respect of every Re publican. co.mmkndi nvsrxr. From Tho Plttsbiii-a Dispatch (In I.) The ticket is a strong one. It is strong in its personnel and displnys much political tact in the judiciou s se lections with respect to locality. The candidates arc Republicans of reputa tion, worth ami ability, and the tickt'l wiil commend itself to the goo l citi zens generally, even without the in spiring expression of principles con tained in the ringing platform which the convent! m adopted. ' TEMPORARY PF.FKAT 1!!T HMUCAI. l-fRIFIi-'ATIOX. From Tlie .Vl'may Journal (Rep.) This Independent movement may bring temporary defeat, bid if it sb:ill re-sult in a radical puriiication of the party in its methods and actions, the temporary saerilice will insure abun dant compensation in enduring har mony and success in th i future. von rkfoum wirntx Tin-: party.. From The Hyviicusu Journal (Ki p. J It is a good rule to settle political differences within the party lines, rather than to go abroad for redress. CIVIL siF.UVK e UK FORM TOTHF. FRONT From The Syracuse Ktiimlm'd (Uep.) Henceforth with those Republicans of Pennsylvania Civil Service purifi cation, as well as party regeneration, is a foremost issue, yielding iu im portance to nothing else. Kl'EAKINM FORTIUS l'HOPLT-:. From Tlie Flnitra Advertiser (Rep.) The convention represented tho ad vanced and progressive element of the party. Ho far as its utterances and platform are concerned it spoke for the people who are tired and sick of boss ism iu politics and wlio believe in a genuine Civil Service reform. AX KARXKST Ml IVKMUN'T. From The Rochester pemueiat und Chronicle (Rtp.) The movement is certainly an earnest one, and begins with an en thusiasm and a vim which must in spire serious views of the situation, not only iu Pennsylvania, but in other States as well. Should the revolt prove successful iu the Keystone State, its widening effects may bo of the utmost importance to the party and to the country. A CHEDITAHLE TIC'IvF.T. From Tho HulTiilo Express (Rep.) Tlie ticket yesterday nominated at Philadelphia by the Republicans of our sister Slate is one of those clean, strong, creditable tickets which it cheers every patriotic heart to eee put in tlie field by a political party. A GOOD TI M K TO G R AS P TH E SITU ATION. From The Xewurk Advertiser (Rep.) Tlie immediate result of the move ment may prove disasterous, especially to Cameron, and apparently to the Republican party for tho tiwie. Rut probably there could be no better time for'tue Republicans to grasp the situa tion in its entirety. A SIO.VIKICANT MilVK.MBHT. From Tho Boston dVfirtlsor (Rep.) Hueh a convention Iu Pennsylvania has an Important signllloance. The men who liavo committed themselves to this course may not succeed at the polls this year; but they are on the side of right and the winning forces of public: opinion. If not this year or next year, they will sometime win the battle which they have courageously begun, provided they falter not in the way. a ii.vTTLF. von ttrcruoLinAN nioirra. From Tho Boston Journal (Rep.) The Cameron despotism has seized the party machinery so that reform in the old organisation Is slow and un certain. It is possible that some, ar rangement may yet lie fruide, but It Is scarcely probably. The conflict will be viewed with Interest throughout the country ; and the mass of progressive Republicans who appreciate all that Camoronisni means in Pennsylvania will sympathize with the; Independ ents in their battle for the rights of Republican voters. FRKF. FROM COM PROM IF p. From Tlie Huston Triinscrlpt (Uep.l Very little taint of compromise can be detected in tiie tone and spirit of this remarkable meeting. The candi dates nominated by it are all vouched for as men of high character and large intelligence. Whatever influences of a personal nature may have led to the Inception of the movement, circum stances have forced it into nn un reserved Civil Service reform position. fiulMruifi mtrn funnel In or for rniv ens it viU not cui-a cr vAk UJZ223XtA I'uurx via i'itivly a vool c in pound. 5 u iv 19 jivb t'u;' iivu i'j miy or mi (i hit i ;it is la uu'j.
