MORE DOUGHERTY RECEIPT;. given Negroes attempt to Illegally Beg later in the Seventh Ward. The following statement made by one of the election officers of the Fifth district of the Seventh ward shows the desperate attempt the Repub 1 leans are making to carry the city by fraud "Seven negroes came up to register at one time on Saturday. There was no one with them. I made the remark to the other officers: 'There comes a lot of them who are coming up to register.' They came up. One of them offered to register, aud we questioned him. He failed to answer the questions satisfactorily . We refused to allow him to register. Then he and the rest went away. They all had Dougherty's tax receipts, dated January 9, 189l" and the signatures were, as far as we could judge, good ones. I did not hear anything more of them. It was late in the evening aud they did not have time to go to any other place of registration." This is but one glaring example of many such attempts. In the Second district of the Fourth ward quite a number of negroes c*me up When asked where they "at No. Several of to register lived they replied 513 Poplar street." them registered At last the Democrats became suspicious. They went up to No. 515 Poplar street, and brought the colored woman who lived there down to the place of registration. She testified that with the exception of her husband and one male boarder, Do men lived at her house When the negroes had registered aud the negroes who were waiting to be registered heard this they sneaked away. Efforts will be made to secuie the conviction of the men who registered by this subterfuge, ERROR LISTS NOT STOLEN Clerk ot the Peace Biggs Denies the Every Evening'» Statement. Clerk of the Peace W. P. Biggs this morning called the attention of an Even ing Journal reporter to the following paragraph in the tax receipt sals expose in yesterday's Every Evening "To cover up the base rascality some cue has stolen the error lists of 1889 from the offioe of Clerk of the Peace Biggs, thus seeking to obliterate tbe records by which deteotiou and the *er tent of the treachery eould be ascer tained. Only a portion of the magnitude of this bit of debauchery can be shown by the assessment lists, but the evi dences that tbe party has been sold out are complete." After the reporter read the paragraph above quoted, Mr. Biggs went to his safe and took out three books. Two of the books contained t he error lists of Tax Collector John J. Dougherty for 1889 aud 1890 The other book, which was larger thau either of the other two, contained the error lists of George W. McKee for the same years "Is there any truth in the statement that they were stolen?'' inquired the reporter "Not a particle of truth in it," he replied. "Noue of the error lists that came Into mv possession were stolen. As S eu see 1 have two error lists for Mr ougherty, one for '89 and one for '90 I also have those of George W. McKee for the same years. I do not like such things as those to be pat in the papers." PRELIMINARY PRE PARATIONS.

At the anniversary and banquet given by tbe Catholic Benevolent Legion of Philadelphia last evening Father Ber mingham responded to the toast "Tbe Church." Aftera clear exposition of the subject, he concluded iu the following most eloquent manner: "Some have said without a blush that we Catholics are not loyal Americans The mothers who tanght us to lisp the name of Bod, taught us to love the name of freedom. As long as we are true to one we shall love the other. Here our fathers struggled , here they toiled and here they died. Shall we be disloyal to the land where tteir sacred ashes lay? O hids that thought in shame! Others in their ignor ance will say that if wa Catholics are directed by the Pope to attempt the overthrow of the national constitution, we are bound to obey. "Be charitable and tell them that the Constitution of the United States is not repugnant to the law of God. It is one which the people of tbe United States under the law bad a right to establish, and therefore the Pope never had, has not Dow, and never will have a right, to commend its overthrow. Tell them, that American Catholics bow in bumble—no, not bumble, but proud submission to our Holy Father, the Pope, as the Head of the Catholic Chnrob, But tell them, too, that if any powers were to cross the St a with the hostile intention of disturbing one star in our flag, or of substituting far that flag any Bign or standard of Catholicity, Catholic Americans, sword in hand, would meet them on the shore and conquer then or die, and so dying would die iu the bosom of the Catholic Church "It is a duty not only to convince them of our loyal Americanism, but that the warmest friend of the American republic is the Roman Catholic Church. Catholic men should strive to build up a strong Catholic American public opinion in strict accordance with Catholic tradition and Catholic inspiration It is already forming, and you can complete it. Every good deed done, every pure thought breathed, every true word spoken, ehall quicken some intelligence, touch some heart, inspire some noble soul. Nothing true er great wa's ever lost. No brilliant example ever shines in vain. It will kindle some fire, Illu mine some darkness and gladden some eye Be active, be true, be heroic, be united, and yon will be succeessful beyond what you can hope. " FELL EIGHTEEN FEET.

The Union Veteran tsslou'i Memorial Servier» Lut Evening. Elen Hall wns crowded laat evening by tbo members and friends of Encamp ment No. 36, Union Veteran Legion, who attended the memorial service« held in honor of dead comrades. Portraits of Grant and Lincoln adorned the stage, which was decorated with flags and hung with crepe through respect for those who died. In front of the stage were three vacant chairs draped in mourning to represent the p'aces In t he camp left vacant through the deaths of Glatte, Grimahaw and McNair Among those on the stage were Senator Anthony Higgins and General W. P. Snyder of Philadelphia Colonel H. A Shea's presided. The program which the Evknino Journal has printed was ren dered. Those taking part in it were M. C Ruthrauff. Samuel Sevier, Mrs. Annie Grnmr, Mies Lissie Holloway. W V, Tnxbury. J. Trabbold, J. Gillespie, Mrs, 8. A. Mceallister. General W. P. Snyder, MisaV. Conner, Miss Elizabeth A Sterey, Senator Anthony Higgins, Dr. T. Gardi ner Lit,tell, Rev. J. H. Simms, Mrs Flor ence Fisher. General W P Snyder, the orator of tbe evening, was Introduced and spoke as follows: Commanders, Members of the Uuion Veteran Legion, Ladies and Gentlemen: Beauty, music, flowers and flags, awaken emotions we love to experience. The eloquence of a Conkling, or the stars of a Sherman could scarcely draw an audience more satisfactory to a speaker's heart than this To be with you to-night inspires we with a vanity that even my unimportance cannot silence Here where every glance of the eye and every throb of the heart assures a welcome, it is certainly pleasing to dwell. "me Twelfth Commandment." I often look out upon the bewildering, cleshing, jealous aud revious army of men, ana often have I sent up a heart felt wish that in some way they might be taught to love each other; that all this bad feeling, bitterness, selfishness, envy and impious strife might at last die away nuder some grand aong peace swelling np from the souls of se many It's.been hard for me to see that these very men have actually been erec.t*d or condemned, I know not which, to hate each other Aud yet in all my years, and they are not many, l I have seen few men who have been bold and brave enongh to advocate a doctrine that taught men to respect Instead of bats each other. I have seen few edi - tors of newspapers, and I distinctly differ in my opinion in regard to newspaper men with Professor Elliott of Harvard, who have had the courage to advocate a doctrine that taught their readers to think for tbemsalves, or to make them believe that they had minds of their own wtthont hoops of iron about them I have never yet seen the man who actually lovei his ueighb-r like he loved himself. I have seen a few men who had the courage to teach aud talk the noble doctrine "to do right, simply because it is right to do so. " The - »Idler la Politics. Thsnk Heaven again, that the vile machinations of modern politics infests not the ranks of the Union Veteran Legion. Heie the Republican and Democrat can lie down together. While I am a stalwart of stalwarts among Republicans, I am also a stalwart believer in a good stalwart Democrat They were with us during the dark dayB of th* war,helping us to save the nation, and they are with us to day. I pity the weakness and despise the folly ef a man who only sees good in his own party. To maintain a Republican form of government and a nation there must be at least two parties and the better both are the better we are, and the better the country is. Samuel J. Randall, who sleeps in his grave not yat a year, is mourned universally—not because he wi3 a Democrat—not in a partisan sense, bnt because he was a true and great American statesman. The G-reat Chiefs Who Sleep, Hancock, the "superb," is enshrouded in the affections of the whole people. Not because ho was a Democrat, not in a partisian sense, bnt because he was a good soldier. Little Mac is sleepiug his last sleep in the heart of the nation, and his fame and glory will never die. Our own Hartranft sleeps on the hillside of his native town forever buried in the affections of ths people at large Sher dan on the public pillow of peace and net and his rant like In life, like in battle went to his grave with an unfaltering trust and like one "who wraps the drapery of his couch abont him aud lies down to pleasant dree ms ." And yet, thousands npon thousands without erred and with out party will forever wend their way to pay tribute to the illustrious dead at his sepulchral home The lovable Meade and the gallant Baker, both rest, forever in the affections of the people, and will always be enshrined in memory of the nation. Lincoln, grandest and greatest of them all, "with malice towards none, and charity for all," went to God with the universal love and blessings of the world. And only a little while ago— grand old Tecumseh—the last of the great generals of the ¥nion notwith standing the stern stuff he was made of answered to this last roll call, like a fighter and went to his grave with the sorrow and grief of the entire nation— aud to night his grave is piled full of affection and love cloud high. These thoughts naturally "stretch the the mystic chord of memory to the battle fields of the Uuion; and to-night we gather in rememberance of the heroic dead, who to the "grand wild music of the war, marched to the front, without pay. without draft, and only with a heart full of love for the Union, to face the ruddy gnus' of death and there to do and die for the eternal right The memorial committee was James McDowell, chairman ; Lewis P.
