EDWARD SCULL, Editor and Proprietor. WEDNESDAY. .November 33. 188 The Independent lie, that Gen eral Beaver betrayed his constituents at Chicago, by voting for Gen. Grant is answered by the returns from his own county, where he ran two hun dred and eighty ahead of his ticket The Independents now explain their small vote by paying a larsie portion voted for Pattison. But Chairman Hensel indignantly de nies this. He says it is not true, and that the vote shows it, and that the bolters are only trying to lolgter up a weak cause by another trick. While the New York Tribune and Timet were concerning themselves with Pennsylvania politics and giv ing unsought advice as to the way we should vote, the Democracy ran off with New York to the tune of 190,000. Next time it would be well for both Time and Tribune to look after their own pasture. It is a clear Democratic victory since the election, and Democratic roosters are crowing over it lustily. The poor Indeentleiit are like the C lwardly friltiw who claimed that uum and Ik-tty killed the War." Stewart didn't carry a single county in the Slate, nor even an election precinct in his own county. During the late canvass the Dem ocrats and Independents ineiwted that the tariff was not an issue, and atrenuously asserted that it could not be affected by the result Al ready tke Democrats are declaring against protection, and the struggle for tWt speakership of the ext Con gress will turn on that question. Having deliberately betrayed and defeated the Republican party in the State, the "Independent" bosses and organs are now howling for harmo- n r TtiA inrtnili:iri u-lwl bus bum , ", , , , i - ed vour house, or the detected thief who has robbed your safe, could plead for harmonv with about the same propriety and hope of succcsr, The Democrats in this State are already wrangling over the sjoils. Nearly every county is putting forth its candidate for a share, and the life of Governor Pattieon is leconiing a burden to him. All the tricky civil service homilies preached be fore the election are quite forgotten, and the ancient part)- eWati "to the victor belong the spoils," is again heard on all sides. Stewart, McKee, Koontz and other leaders in the Independent revolt, must feel infinitely small when they look at the returns and find that despite all their bragging and blowing, their ticket received a much smaller vote than Wolfe polled last year, when he was unaided by their stupendous t-trength. No set of vaunting leaders ever received a more humiliating back-set. Ox roasts, torch-light processions and geueral jubilation, are the order of the day among the Democrats all over the State. The great "Democratic victory" is the theme of all our Democratic X' hatij.es. Not a bone is thrown to the Independent pack that hi-led pull down the game. It is a verifi cation of the old, old truth, "they love the treason, but despise the traitors." The Independents have been all summer trying to unload Senator Cameron, and have just found out that, they have merely emptied themselves out into the Democratic mud, and that there will be no room fpr them in the wagon hereafter, as Senator Cameron and the friends and supporters of General Beaver and the Republican ticket oc-upy all the desirable seats. Hurruliurg Telc(ia.h. Dr. H. Clay McKi.vi.ey is not on ly the subject of much congratula tion, but the object of much envy because of the superb run he made for Congress. Outside of this Coun ty, where he received Z'M votes, he Iolled 14 in Blair, 13 in Bedford, and 00 in Cambria, making a grand total of 423 votes in the district. The Doctor ought to have used a little dynamite to open the crevices of the mountains on election day. The honest Independents of this county are now beginning to fully realise how infamously they were deceived and misled by the Cbm mcrcinl and by Boss Koontz and his clackers, into aiding in the election of a Democratic Governor. The mass ol the Independents are honest, but their leaders are essentially dis honest &nd should, and will be treated as cheats and shams, as they proved themselves to be. Shortly before the election, Stew art said in a t-peech at Wcllsboro: "Stalwarts, come over to the Inde ' pendente, for you have nothing to sacrifice. Gederal Beaver is now really out of the fight and the man I am gun sing for is Pattison. If any Republican is elected Governor it must be myself." Is the great reformer a fool, or did he wilfully and knowingly mate this statement to decive the people ? Pattison only leads him three hun dred Bd ten thousand, six hundred and fifty two votes, while Beaver, who was "out of the fight," beats him over two hundred and seventy thousand, or more than six to one. . According to tL-lBdepenfntAi-we have cot rid of "boss" Cameron j and Quay and Cooper and the rest of the Republican "bosses," but in return we have got "boss" Wallace and Randall and Josephs and Mc- Mullen and the balance of the Dem ocratic bosses. Will some one please tell us where the "reform comet in? Koontz preached the goppel of "reform" throughout this State and county, asserting that the Republi can party was corrupt and must be purified. The result of his teachings is a Democratic Governor, Demo cratic State officer?, a Democratic Legislature, and four more Demo cratic Congressmen. Will the Gen eral please point out where the pu rification comes in ? lo spite of the defeat of General Beaver, we have never known the Republicans of this county to feel better over the result of an election. They have re-elected General Camp bell to Congress, have redeemed the Senatorial District by electing Cap tain Longenecker, have elected their Legislature and County ticket, and best of all, have unloaded a score or so of county "bosses," and sneaking, sore-head, self-important politicians who, because they xuldn't have ev erything their own way, undertook to betray the county iuto the hands of the Democrat. The party has been purified, it has taught a lesson to A few selfish gentlemen who j thought they owned it, and it has, got rid of the growlers who thought it lived on the breath of their nos tril. Such were the sentiments ex pressed by huudreds of our best Re publicans whom we met last week. After declarinar time and again during the canvass, that Beaver was out ol the race, that the fight was be tween Pattison and Stewart and that the hitter would be elected, the Meyersdale Commrreial of last week says of the Independent voters in this county : "Bear in mind that those seven "hundred true and earnest Republi cans knew that their votes could "not elect their honored and brave "leader, John Stewart, but that their "votes would aid in the election of '"Governor Pattison." This kind of base scoundrelism and unadulterated lying is, we pre sume, what the Commercial desig nates as "better and purer Republi canism."' Be it what it may, it clearly shows all honest men the utterly unreliable, untruthful meth ods of a paper claiming to represent the Indeenlent organization in Somerset county. We congratulate thtse pure politicians and model re formers. Koontz & Co., on the high character their mouthpiece gives itself. The Republicans of New York and Pennsylvania when they get to work examiningthe wreck, will have time for thinking. They intended to kick the dashboard, straddle the traces, and sma.h the breechen, but the idea that they have slightly over done it will perhaps soon come across their minds. The case reminds the Inter Ocean of Sat Lovengood's colt Sut was the owner of a blooded young horse which he was anxious to break to harness so that he would not scare at anything. He laid the case Itefore his father, and persuaded his venerable sire to mount the wagon and drive while he hid in the fence corner to do the frightening. The colt went well enough until it came to the fence corner where Sut, covered with a hujje buffalo skin. was concealed. Suddenly, when Sut jumped out shaking his hide and yelling, the colt lit out, snorting and kicking. Sut finally reached his paternal relative, and, exhuming his bruised remains, said : "That would have been splendid training for the colt if you had only held on tighter." When, between groans, the fond parent exclaimed : "O, my boy, you made too big a lxx for so little a colt" It strikes a multitude of eople that the Sut Lovengood Republicans of New York and Penn sylvania made rather "too big a boo" for the size of the colt. Chicago In ter Ocean. In spite of all the enthusiasm, and speech making, and organization and money ; in spite of all .he eloquence of Stewart and Mitchell, of Woife, Lear and "glorious old Tom Mar shall," the Independent vote is less this year than it was last year when Wolfe made his canvass alone. In almost every county in the State it has fallen off. In Philadelphia it fell off over G,000. In Lancaster it fell off )00; in Allegheny, 1,100; in Union, Wolfe's county, it fell off 1, 030; in Lawrence, 400; in Butler, 250; in Mercer, 150. A prominent Independent in Greenville told us before the election that if Wolfe would make another sjeech in that place Stewart would not get a vote, and it looks now as though, had the campaign lasted two weeks longer, Stewart would uot have had a corpo ral's guard in the'State. They over did the thing. They disgusted with their abuse even those who were dis satisfied with the way the Republi can party had been run. x. As a result of the recent Democrat ic success iron and steel mills 1n Scranton and Schuylkill valley are putting their men on half time. The hoje which Republican defeat has inspired of a reduction in the tariff has led to a withholding of orders, esoeciallv on the rmrt nf fb railroads, who begin to anticipate i ult waMaraded by the Democrats v.

Ys. HASH. The hatters are now doing a good business among people whobet on the election. The next Congress, says an ex change, will contain over 20 mem bers born in Ireland. The man who struck Billy Patter son appears to have got his work in upon Secretary Folger. Lynch, of Mississippi, and O''- , Hara. of North Carolina, are tlic only colored men elected to the new Con gress. It is estimated that there will be fifty contested election cases in the House of Representatives next Con gress. It is essi mated that it took ten million straight drinks to properly wash down and celebrate the recent Democratic success. When the Independents in Penn sylvania got to running they forgot to stop at headquarters, but kept on to the Democratic camp. One of the objects of life is to cre ate happiness, and the Republican party has just made millious of un washed Democrats supremely hap The New York'W says that the man whom the Democrats have elected County Clerk in New York City "cannot legally write his own name." Independent Republicans got alarmed about 'bosses" and the "spoils system" and put the Denioc racy in power. Now stand back and see "reform." The Philadelphia Prest shows by the vote in differentStates, compared with the results of other years, that at least 1,500,00(3 Republicans did not come out for the November election. The Democrats in New York made another fearful blunder. Just think how they will feel when the vote next time m counted and a Re- publican gain of 250,000 is reported, As usual, they overdid it. j i The bosses must go. - Indian" polU Herald. But another lot of bosses appear to be coming which it took four years and S2,000,(XK,000 to lick twenty - ears ago. Inter Ocean Commissioner Dudley asserts that there are 1,000,000 ex-soldiers yet living who have never auplied for pensions. He thinks the chances are that there will be an increase rather than a reduction of the en sion rolls. THE EKKKCr. The Republican party having gone through with a performance anala gous to a man kicking himself down stairs, the questions of the hour are: What will he the e fleet and what shall be done about it? In consider ing these questions there is a dispo sition among those who I'elieve themselves to le molders of public opinion to discuss the hearings of the late lame-nUtl election on those who have held office, or are now in office, or on those who exect to or would like to hold office. So far as the feuds and resentments of the campaign are concerned this is all well enough, because any man can see with half an eye that one faction of the Republican party exhibited a fair degree of skill in cutting the throat of the other. , But the main jioint now to receive attention is that relating to the effect the defeat will have on the Republi cans who have never held office and who never expect to hold office on that great army of active workers who have grown into the habit of voting as a matter of principle. How will the spectacle of the old party tumbling down stairs strike the av erage man who vote3 the Republi can ticket ? It is not easy to answer this ques tion m a way to extract a comfort ing sort of lesson from defeat The voters, of the party are somewhat dazed, it must le admitted have lost their party legs, as it were and it they were called into line to-mor row for another such contest as that of Tuesday, a not very heavy blow with a leather would knock them down. Fortunately no important contest will tike pluce for a year. This gives time for recuperation, but i n der what conditions will the rank and file fall into line in best shape lor the heavy work that will be ask ed at their hands? After all other features of the upheaval have been considered and discussed this ques tion will overshadow all others in its " importance and significance. Putting aside the right or the wrong of this or that faction, all who cen tre their hopes in the future of Re publicanism will admit that the very first Btep in reorganization is to reassure the great army of voters. Those most concerned in the recent factional fights may be exepcted to nurse their resentments and to un cover the secret intrigues of each oth er, but the mass of the party cannot be kept face to face with the mistakes or blunders of a canvass that result ed so disastrously. Had the Republican party never before indulged in eccentricities the wild Ireak of Tueeday last might well create dismay. But in the try ing days of 180, when the rebel armies were overrunning Maryland and threatening Washington, and Lincoln had issued his emancipa tion proclamation, the party that had elected the President was defeated at the polls. Maine, New York, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana, and Illinois, the States of Blaine, Sew ard, Cameron, Chase, Morton and Lincoln, all gave Democratic major ities. The surprisinz, startling re- ed - distre-8ed "d discouraged, and the staunchesl of the Union men at home were troubled with missgiv ings, and puzzled by questions no one could answer. Were the loyal people opposed to the ar ? - Did i they disapprove oi me emancipation nrnelamation ? Were they dissatis fied frith the removal of McClellan? Or did the people of the great war States distrust President Linsoln? However it might be, there was one man who made so complaint and indulged in no recrimination. That man was President Lincoln, and he went on doing the best be could, and murmuring not at the dissatisfaction of the people. And the people themselves after that ex hibition of irritableness became ao heartily ashamed of themselves that in 1863everv one of the states nam- ! ed above gave overwhelming Repub lican majorities, and m teri every one voting equarely on the" issue of 1862 ( the policy of Lincoln as against that of McClellan) gave tremendous majorities for the man for whom it was said the rebuke of 1802 had been intended. The plain truth was that the people were dissatisfied in 18G2 because they could not under stand the President nor comprehend the difficulties in his way nor the magnitude of his undertaking. In 1SGG and 1SI7 Johnson 8 change of policy threw the Republican par ty for a time into such confusion as promised certain distress, but the people separated the man from the party and rebuked Johnson by tri umphantly electing Grant in 18G8. In 1874 there was a reaction from the intense party feeling of 1872, and through indifference or dissatis faction on the part of Republicans, Massachusetts, Indiana, New York, Onio and Pennsylvania gave Demo cratic majorities. This was then re garded as a rebuke to Grant, but cu riously enough in 1875 Massachus etts, Pennsylvania and Ohio gave Republican majorities. In 187 1 the tactions of the party made a treaty of peace over the nom ination of Hayes, and in 1877 New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Mas sachusetts went squarely against the party that had elected him. The dissatisfaction then was with the President's Southern policy and when the cause had been removed the party got in good shape for the fight in 1880, and, after a bitter tight among the factious, buried the hatchet in the nomination ol Gar field. The revolt of 1SS2, however, is like none that preceded it. While some of the reliable Republican States have slipped their cables, no two have had the same reason for indulging in the eccentricity. St. John was not defeated in Kansas for the same reason that Folger was in New York and certainly the Repub lican candidate for Governor in Michigan was not slaughtered lor iwl - .,,. o.wn Ki,.-..n lnlt I !ajSx UJ1U in pjnnsvlvania. The quarrel in Ohio was not between administration men and anti-administration men, nor was it in Indiana or Kansasor Mich- team There was several States on the sick list, and each will require a dif ferent medicine in the shape ot a restorative. 1 he New l oik experts who know all about their own sore sM)ts should not insist in ouring their medicine down the throats ot Republicans in Indiana or Michigan or Kansas. Everv possible experi ment in the wav of high jinks has been tried, and if Republicans are not heartily ashamed of the record made, they ou;ht to lie. The hope for 1881 lies in the probability that the party, having gone to extremes in the way of oiid cajters, will now settle down to busim-ss. A Terrible Time. Coixxini's. November 19, At the present time a sad stde of affairs exists at the institution for feeble minded in this citv. About a week ago scarlet fever broke out among the children, and hftv are now un der treatment, three'di aths h iving occurred during the last week, and many others are now lying in a crit ical condition. As soon as the epi demic appeared a quarantine was t-stabhshed so as to prevent as far as jKiseible the spread of the scourge.' While every effort has been niade to arrest the spread of the disease, new cases have been of daily occur rence. The school has in some re spect been interfered with, and all the teachers whose services could in any way be of use have assumed the position of nurse. Owing to the crowded condition of the institution on account of the fire one year ago, much difficulty is experienced in properly caring for the sick, but Dr. Doren, the superintendent, is doing all that is possible to le done for those now down, and using every measure to prevent the spread of the disease. Murdered a Church Festival. Charlotte, N. C, November 19. -A terrible affray occurred at a church festival, in Gaston county, last night, l nomas Oaribaldi and Rufus Magill were rival claimants for the hand of pretty Blanche Brant, the belle of the county. At the festival blanche smiled on Gari baldi and snuobed Magill. Mapes, a friend, taunted Magill, when he became enraged, jumped over and knocked down an ict cream table. Mapes drew a revolver and shot at Magill, missing him. Magill shot Majes in the face breaking both jaws. 1 he gin shrieked aud swoon ed. A fearful panic ensued. Men and women tramped upon each other. Garibaldi, being unarmed, attempted to flee. Magill rushed at him, but lost his pistol in the crowd. He then seized a heavy iron shovel and beat out the brains of Garibaldi in the presence of the girl and fifty others. Mapes will die. MWiii fled. Driven Mad. Erie November 13, There was a terrible scene in the county jail this morning with vVilliam McAvoy, the Greenback-labor politician, who was driven mad by the result of the elec tions. Being possessed of almost superhuman strength, he began tear ing down the bars of his cell, twist ing them like twigs. Foaming at the mouth, he cursed Beaver and Patti son for defeating Armstrong, the Labor candidate for Governor and when the warden with a body of Ensoners went to secure him, he eld them at bay with a bar of iron for a long time. There is but little hopes of his recovery. Killed. Little Rock, November 16.

U AUtMUM. A Washington dispatch to the New York Tribune says : Second Auditor Reynolds has returned from Alabama, where he went to make Republican speeches and to vote. Everything was so fair and orderly to all appearance up to the day of election that be was hardly able to credit the assertion of Republicans that tke Democrats would practice frauds to secure the victery. He determined, therefore, to watch the process of voting in Sehna, where he was, aud satisfy himself, if possible, what grounds there ought to be for a suspicion of irregularity. Every thing apparently was fair and regu lar in the reception of the votes Two lines were formed, one being composed of white and the other of colored voters. None were challen ged, and no efforts to delay voting were noticed. The crowd was kept thirty feet from the polling place, as required by law. The Republicans were nevertheless so thoroughly con v nced that false counting had been d-termined upon by the Democrats that they decided to keep a tally list of Republicans who voted, and for this purpose they placed a table with ink and paper upon it in the yard. By noon the line of white voters had dwindled away to nothing, while that of colored voters was full, and continued so during a greater portion of the da'. Early in the afternoon a party of five or six young white men approached the table where the Republican tally-list was kept and one of them accosting the tally man asked, "What are you doing this for? "We are keeping a tally of the Re publicans votes," was the reply. "Will you tike my name?" whs the next question. "Certainly, if you will vote the Republican ticket " "Let us see it done," said the Democrat, leaning over the table as if to scrutinize the work. Immedi ately he seized the papers, which then contained the names of more than six hundred voters, and return ing among his fellows tore them to pieces and threw them on the ground. Mr. Reynolds, who had witnessed the affair, asked the tally man why he didn't protest or do something to defend his tally list. "Of what use? was the reply. "Didn't you see those fellews put their hands in their hip pockets ? I saw it meant fight, and I should have lost my life for nothing." After the polls closed and while the votes were being counted Mr. Rey nolds asked Democrats who were standing about waiting the result how many Democratic votes they supposed had been cast. The high est estimate w.as 300. Mr. Reynolds, who had been present during the whole day, thought this estimate was aliout fifty in excess of the true num ber. When the result was declared it wxs found that 1,200 votes had been cast, the Democratic candidate re ceiving 500 majority according to the returns made by the Democratic officials who conducted the alleged count AceiInit. St. Pail. November 15, A seri ous railroad accident occurred early this morning at Robert Station, a small place about 20 miles east from Hudson, on the Chicago, St. Paul, Minneapolis and Omaha Company s eastern division. A stock train, in charge of Conductor' O'Connor, was stopping for water. O'Connor, a brakeman named Govern, a travel ing engineer named Finn, and a man to whom the stock belonged were sitting in the caboose, when a freight train dashed into the end ot the ca boose, setting fire to the car. The engineer and fireman of the freight jumped in time to save their lives. Govern managed to crawl out from under the wreck, but his right arm was torn from its socket, and he died from loss of blood within an hour. O'Connor was burned to death, and nothing but his bones were recovered. Finn wa3 badly in jured in the back, but he may recov er. Political Excitement. Pittsburgh, Nov. 13. A special from Erie, I'a.,says: Wra. M. Cavoy, the well known greenbacker, has become a raving maniac since the last election. He was intensely in terested in the contest, working day and night for Armstrong, his favorite candidate for governor. When the news of Pattison's election was re ceived he was sadly disappointed. To-day his actions became so strange that it was deemed advisable to place him in the custody of the police. He was no sooner behind his cell than he began foaming at the mouth and tearing at the bars, which he twisted like twins. Durine hia ravings he cursed Beaver and Pat tison for defeating Armstroiig. When the warden with his deputies went to secure him he held them at bay with an iron bar for a long time. There is little hope of h)9 rtcoverv. KriHhiful Fall.

Ueotiosa A Territto Kiplnwloas. Little Rock, Ark Nov 13. A i special from Hot Springs, Ark., says that an Sunday morning at 2 o'clock a tern tic explosion was heard in M. B. O'Brien & Co., sage store. A policeman who entered the buildiug discovered tha, the iron safe bad been blown open and that the desk, doors and the windows of the rear end of the building were also blown to fragments and heaped together in a confused mass. Tue glass in the front of the store, eighty feet distant, was shivered and the plastering in an adjoining store was broken, but nothing was ignited. On examining the pieces of the safe it was found that a small hole had been dulled through the iron and concrete lining of the top in which evidently the powder or fuse was inserted. Inside of the safe was stored a quantity of dynamite caps for blasting purposes, which were ignited and caused the explosion. The safe contained about eight hun dred dollars in paper enrrency beside coins, city and county scrips, papers and bonds, fragments of the cur rency were found, but the force of the explosion drove several coins, into the adjoining wall. Undoubt edly an attempt was made to rob the safe, yet the burglars had got away saleiy. No serious damage was done to the buildings. James Bums, the Chicago pedestrajn, and another man whose name is unknown were arrested to-night suspected of at tempting to rob the safe. Burns is bruised on the shoulder and circum stantial evidence against hotb is con sidered strong. Four .Men Killed. Cleyelama Nov. 13.
