the old man with a firm, yet merry look;
said—look bere Colonel that is nothing
new, you printed such things sixteen
years ago,—tbe country fought, and won a
great war with them—and you made your
fortune by them. The Col. changed here
at once, as he felt that if he remained

A MODEL VILLAGE.
From Columbia, Pa Currant.
Smcketowu, this county, is a remarkable
village in many respects. It has no hotel
or salcon, and its people are temperate, re
ligions, and honest. Amos LoDgnecker is
the Chief Burgees, and be is fully alive to
tbe responsibilities of the position. There
are plenty of old maids the place seeming
to oo a regular asylum for them. There
are also a wagon maker shop, post office,
sti re, shoemaker shop, dtc>, all under one
roof. Wo are glad to hear the model vil •
lage is growing in population rapidly. A
short distance from tha town, at the ele
gant country mansion of Amos Bushong,
Esq., may lie seen one of the finest green
houses in the country, well stocked, and
conducted in a commendable manner.
No place like Sutterley's to take your
babies for a good picture.

THE ELECTION CONTESTS.
THB HEARING OP MESSRS. BOBINSON, ASH,
AND newton's grievances before
THE COUNTY EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE,
The Democratic Executive Committee
met yesterday in the office of E, B. Frazer,
at Third and Market streets, for the pur
pose of looking into the election contests ol
William II. Robinson vs. William Dean,
Charles G. Ash vs. Charles McWhorter and
Wm. M. Newton va. Charles McWhorter.
All the members were present except J.
H. Puhl, Esq. The proceedings were msde
private, and all parties were excluded from
the room except members of the committee
and those particularly Interested.
The notice of contest given below was
S esented by James A.Ray, on part
Newark, Sept. 11th, 1878.
tb William Dean, Esq.—Sir From
the figures showing the result of the nomi
nation election on Saturday last, the 7th
lust., for Representative, you appear
have a- plurality of six votes over me, the
full returns placing me the next highest.
Feeling that I have been unfairly dealt
with, having, as 1 sm able to sbn v, re
cefved a greater numbef'Of Democratic
votes than any candidate ruantiig at that
time in the Hundred of While Clay Creek
for the Legislature, I hereby notify you
that it is my intention to contest your nomi
nation before the County Committee at their
L~Tbe contest shall be-based upon the fol
lowing specification :
>]}lret, That sundry Republican votes were
received by the Judges of election contrary
to the protest and advice of mao; leading
Democrats, and contrary to Rule 2 of rhe
.party rules; and. that, said Republican votes
"were cast for only you as Representative,
and had such illegal Republican votes not
been cast received or counted, my nomina
ilon would have been assured.
Wm H Robinson
Mr. Ignstlns C. Grubb, as counsel for
William Dean In quite a long speech,
questioned the authority of the Committee
to hear the case, and said that looking at
it in all aspects it were wiser and better not
to do so.
Without hearing Mr. Ray lnreply.the com
mittee, acting on a motion of Mr. O'Byrne,
decided to hear the case and determine it.
Mr. Ray stated that he was a witness,
and asked the permission of the committee
to act as attorney for Mr. Robihson, which
James H. Ray was sworn and testified—
On tbe morning of the 7th Inst., Atmore
Woodrow, a Republican, offered to pledge
himself for the successful nominee if his
vote-was taken. Wm. H. Smith, one of the
judges, refused to take his vote unless he
would uncoDdltlonaliv pledge himself to
vote for Mr. Dean. He went away saying
he would not vote- Abont a quarter of
seven o'clock Mr. Dean came to the voting
room and said to Smith.'5 Da. woo want a
man to pledge himself to rot/after he* is
dead/ Woodrow here came up and repeat d
what behad said ln the Kng. 8mIth
thea took the vote without an uncondl
tional pledge. Those who voted without
an unconditional pledge, as Woodrow had
done, are Wm. Thornly, Wm. D; Oornsg,
Benjamin Butterworth, Alfred Curtis
Edward GUmore, John M. Williamson
Dale Roberts end Wm. T. Lee, Those who
voted with no pledge at all are Lewis Me
Cormick, Theodore Wolf, Joseph Wilson,
-Jeffefs. Thomas Reiley came np to
vote, be is a known Democrat. HU Vote
was refused on the ground that be had no
n»terallzat!oD paperi; he had made known his
intention of voting lor Wm. H. Robinson.I
protested earnestly against the taking of
the above 14 votes.
Thomas M. Robinson—After the man
Woodrow bad voted I heard him say that
he did not consider himself pledged and If
tbe candidate nominated, or words to that
eff-ct, was objectionable, be would not vote
stall. I am acquainted with Lewis Me
Oormick, and know him to be a Republl
Cross-examined—I have not heard Me
Cormick speak of politics for a year. I do
not know that Mr, Dean knew Woodrow
Intended to violate his pledge.
The hesrlng of testimony for the contest
ant here closed
Wm. H. Smltt-I was oEeof the judges
of the election on, the 7th Inst, I know
Woodrow. HU pledge was administered to
him and be took it. It was fully and uu»
Conditlonally taken. Wm. Thornly said he
would come to the electlob and vote; I do
not remember bis exact language, but under
stood him to say he would vote for the sue
. All the judges concurred in
the matter. Cornog pledged himself and
voted without protest as also did Butter
worth and Curtis. I do not know John M.
Willismson; Dale Robert did not vote; W.
T. Lee said h* wasDemocrat; ! do not
know Joseph Wilson. NSlther Lewis Mc
Cormick or Theodore Wolf were pledged,
they voted but no one objected.
Cross-examined—I know McCormick but
do not know that I solicited him to vote;
was one of tbe judges and was also a can
didate (or ROad Commissioner. The persons
objected to, all voted about tbe same time.
Tbe case bere closed and John O'Byrne
moved that it Is the sense of thU meeting
that the contestant has not proved the
specification of his petition, and that Wm.
Dean wss properly nominated for the posi
tion of candtdatofor Representative.
Tbe yeas and nays were.then taken up,
and the motion was adopted by a vote of 10
m " tlng on the 19th In8t -
Tbe contest of Charles G. Ash vs. Chas.
McWhorter, for Senatorial candidate irom
Red Lion Hundred, wa* brought np with
Dr. F. 8. Dunlap appearing for Mr. Ash.
Mr. McWhorter objected on tbe groand
that sufficient notice had not been given,
and; the committee decided that before it
could countenance, or recognize the contest
notice must be given.
Wm. A. Newton's contest for candidate
for Senator from Red Lion hundred vs.;
Charlea McWhorter, was then givex atten
tion to. The specification of Hit. Newton's
tttltlon were : 1st, Misrepresentation; 21,
fraud, and it held out thatjthere more than
were 24 votes cast for him, although only
that number loniv was counted.
Mr. Newton frankly said that ha did not
expect to prove enough false votes to over-1
come Mr. McWhorter's majority, and this
led the Executive Committee to withdrew
further consideration from his petition of
Dr. Duulsp stated that he was In a simi
lar position as counsel for Mr. Asb, but
was desirous of the committee hearing the
affidavits of both those gentlemen, and cen
suring the fraud.
As both Masers. Asb and Newton had ad
mitted that Mr. McWhorter's majority
could not be overcome the committee by a
vote of 11 to 1 refused to enter Into the
