JOHN lb L W. C. NEGLEY, PROP'RS, Entered at the Post office at Butler as second-classs matter. WE understand that the Pougal will case is to be carried to the Su preme Court. THERE were sixty-six witnesses ex amined in the David Dougal will case tried in our Court last week. WE regret that several matters for want of sp.ice are crowded out this ■Reek, among them "CentreviHe Items." SHOOTING at a dog is an expensive luxury in Washington Sergeant Ma son gets eight year 3 in the penitentiary at hard labor. HON. ANTIREW COOK, of Forest coun tv, is announced for the Republican nomination for Congress in the Twen ty-fifth district. lie is prominent in business, identified with the interests of the district, and belongs to an order of fine and efficient men. Judge Cook weighs 220 pounds net, wears a twen ty-two inch shoe, and possesses a mental understanding in proportion. If nominated he will run like a fire in a cane-break. CARDINAL M'CLOSKEY is taking an active part in the temperance move ments of the Catholic Church, regard ing it as essential in all its objects to the strength and influence of Catholic ism in the United States. His opposi tion to the liquor traffic is of a power ful character, and he is reported as res olute in his designs to carry on the war to the end of securing total absti nence in every Catholic in the country. Success in such a work will make the Cardinal the most distinguished man in the world. COMITTEE MEETING. We have kept the names of the Re publican County Committee standing for now three weeks, in order that they might be fully informed of the time of their meeting, and in order that the Republicans of each district might know the member that represented them on the Committee ; and this in order that they might confer with them and make known their views of pres ent public questions, of candidates, and of instructions to the delegates who may be appointed to the State Con vention. We regard the coming State Convention as the most important one to the party held for mauy years. Therefore Committees or Conventions should speak out clearly the voice of their people. Let there ba a full meet ing of the Committee on next Friday week, and let the views of the Repub licans of the county 4 be carried out, whatever they may be. THE Crawford Journal certainly puts the editor of the Meadville He publican "in a hole," as the saying is, in regard to the nomination of Con gressmen in this district. The Repub lican heretofore has strongly and bit terly opposed the renomination of members representing this district. Notably wa3 this the case with Col. Thompson of this county, who was nominated and elected in 1876, and denied are nomination in 1878. This set the precedent, and Col. Dick was nominated in 1878; p.ud Mr. Miller, present member, following in 1880. For the establishment of this precedent and practice the Meadville Republican is perhaps more responsible than any other. But it now strongly favors re nomination, on principle. Its editor has, it seems, been appointed post-mas ter at Meadville, a place he has been wanting for some years, and he now sees the matter in quite a different light. This is all very natural. But here is where the bad memory of the Republican comes in. It forgets its course in 1878. It is remarkable how an office "alters cases;" just like "cir cumstances" do. But, in a case of such disinterested change of opinion, it is of the greatest importance to edi tors that they should have what it is said "fib tellers" should have, a good memory. The Chinese Bill Passes the llonse. WASHINGTON, March 23.—The bonse met at 10 o'clock iu continuance of Wednesday's session and the debate on the Chinese bill was resumed. Mr. Richardson expressed his inten tion of voting for the bill as a measure of protection to American labor. Mr. Morse based his objection to*the bill upon the ground that it would de stroy the commerce between the United States and China. He would vote against the bill as un-democraric, uu-republican and un-American, dan gerous to us a nation, and injurious to our commerce. Mr. Joyce took the floor to state the grounds why lie should vote against the bill. Mi*. Dunnell based his opposition to the bill on the provision which sus pended the immigration for twenty years. Mr. Orth took up and replied to in detail the objections pres-ed by the ad vocates of the bill against the unre stricted immigration of the Chinese, and opposed the measure because it violated a solemn treaty of the govern ment, and because it made discrimina tions founded upon race and color. Mr. Curtin made an eloquent speech in favor of the Chinese bill and was frequently interrupted with applause. The previous question was ordered. Mr. Page closed the debate. The house then rejected, ayes 100, nays 131, the amendment offered reducing the term of suspension of immigration to ten years, and the bill passed in the exact from iu which it came from the sen ate by a vote of ayes 177, nays C 5. The Pennsylvania members who voted iu tbe negative on the passage of the i bill were Messrs. Barr, Walker, Ward | and Watson.• i T'be Law Governing Primary Meetings.

ARPROVED-r-The 29th day of June, A. D. 1881. HENRY M. HOYT. REMARKS ON ABOVE LAW. As we stated last week, the above is legislating upon a new subject, and in fact upon a matter which, among lawyers and judges, it has been held the Legislature could not legislate with any binding force. To state the matter more plainly ; it is alleged that the Constitution or laws of no State of this Pnion can properly recognize "po litical parties." They treat of general principles ; and provide for the election of all necessary oflicers for the people I and bow they shall be elected, and when and where, in spring or fall; but they say nothing as to how they shall be nominated. All Constitutions and laws simply provide for legal elections, presuming that the people would simply elect, at the resular, legal elec tion, such persons for such offices as suited them best. They knew nothing —and could know nothing—of the "political parties" that might arise. They did not contemplate the idea of "primary elections," or of "several political parties." All such machinery and things have arisen since, and are the works of party and for party man agement. It is true, however, that in the late revised Constitution of this State the word "nomination" is intro duced, as part of and in the oath of of fice that certain elected officers have to take. Whether this lays a foundation for the act of the last Legislature we cannot say at present. But by the act, as above seen, it is made "lawful," and made the "duties," of the persons who may consent to hold the "primary elections," 'meetings," "caucuses," or conventions, of any party in this coun ty, Democrat, Republican, Greenback, Temperance, or any other that can be called "political," to take an oath "to perlorm their duties in accordance with the laws and constitution of Pennsyl vania, and in accordance with the rules and regulations adopted by the Repub lican party (or Democrat, or as the case may be) of the county of Butler for the government of the said primary election, meeting, caucus, etc. As there are no State laws on the subject of nominations, or primaries, until this one, it is difficut to see just how tbe persons holding a primary, or voting in a political convention, cou'd violate anv such. And as the rules and regu lations, for the holding of primaries and conventions for nominations, are vague and uncertain, and ever chang ing, and different as the difierent counties of the State, it is difficult to see how or what the oath to be taken will apply to. If this law is a .consti tutional one, then it will require ail parties to have fixed, determined and certain rules for primaries and conven tions for nominating candidates. In our view we would rather have an honest man holding the primary of our party than any protection this law will give. If honest men, having self re ®|y* Puilexr <g££is*«s: Wnkl**, P*.» 23, 1882. spect, and a regard for the rights of all candidates, hold our nominations we will be much better protected than any doubtful law can protect. What is needed in our party nominations is for this kind of men to early attend them, and to see to it that prudent «fnd proper party friends hold them. There ] has been great complaint in many counties of the State of the unfairness and cheating at primaries and in con ventions, State and county. In this county of Butler there has been fraud and improper voting. And, what is more remarkable, in the county ol Crawford, where our system oi prima ries originated, and where they have had for years a special law something similar to the one we are discussing, vet there has been more complaints, and perhaps more frauds and corrup tion, by t-he actual use of money at the primary, than perhaps any other coun ty in the State. We state this only as one case, and not to prejudice the gen eral law now offered all parties. e hope this general statute will have a fair trial, and hope it may do some good. But our idea of a primary or nomination is that all depends upon the honor, honesty and fair play, that alwavs should exist and be practiced among party friends, or members of the same party. And what we have here written is with the object of di recting attention to this law, and the oath to be taken, etc. Xo one can be compelled to serve or take such oath, and no provision is made iu the law for the expenses of the primary, or convention. These are things that the different "political parties" will have to attend to. The act expressly pro hibits "any expense being put upon the counties or cities." Who then is to bear the expenses? The proviso forbidding any expense to a county or citv would seem to indicate that the Legislature did not consider the law of much value. But until repealed, or its constitutionality tested in the courts, it is binding upon all who as sume its duties. All coming com mittee meetings will have to make ar rangements for carrying out the law, so that the same be made applicable to all the primaries and conventions to be held this year for nominating candi dates, in all the parties, for the fall election. . * PATMEXT OF POLL TAX. The Voter Must Pay it In Per son or by an Authorized Agent. Some years ago ex. Judge Pearson was called upon, in a contested election case, to decide the question whether a person claiming the right to vote on a tax receipt, being otherwise qualified, could be challenged for non-payment of taxes on the ground that he had not paid the tax in person but had the re ceipt presented to him byanother. He decided that the tax receipt was suffi cient evidence of the payment ot taxes by the voter and conclusive on the election officers. This decision has been accepted here as the law, and hitherto political committees In this city and county have been in the habit of paying taxes for voters who were delinquent in qualifying themselves in that regard and handing the receipts to the voters on or before election day. Mauy thousands of dollars have been expended in this way b}* our local po litical committees since that decision was rendered. That this practice is not in conformity with the provision of the constitution making the payment of a state or county tax a qualification of the right of suffrage has always been maintained by some of the best lawyers of the Dauphin county bar. and their view of the matter is now sustained by one of the most eminent common pleas judges of the state. On Thursday last a criminal suit charging one William H. Shrouds, an election officer of the Eleventh division of the Twelfth ward of Philadelphia, with unlawfully rejecting the vote of one William Durst, was tried before Judge Allison, of that city. The his tory of the case is substantially as fol lows: Durst, the prosecutor, was chal lenged for non-payment of taxes. He presented a tax receipt, but was again challenged on the ground that he had not paid the taxes for which he held the receipt. He was sworn by the election officers, but refused to say on his oath that he had paid the taxes. His vote was then rejected. In his ex amination in court he said that he be lieved that the Republican city com mittee had paid the taxes for which he held the receipt, but he did not know of his own knowledge that such was the fact. Counsel for the defense took the ground that Durst in failing to pay his poll tax or in deputizing any one to do it, had not complied with the requirements of the new constitution as to the qualification of voters, and that Shrouds was therefore justified in refusing to take the ballot. Judge Allison, in a long and compre hensive charge on this point, said: 'The new constitution holds as one of the qualifications of a voter that he' —emphasizing the pronoun—'shall have paid a state or county tax within two years. The refusal of the prose cuter in tbis case to make oath that he had made such a payment, in con nection with the admission that he had not made it and had no personal knowledge of its having been paid, justified the judge in rejecting the vote. The judge called the attention ot the jury to the phraseology of the consti tution ; that, properly interpreted, would require that the tax should be paid by the voter himself or by some person whom he had authorized to pay it for him. In the latter instance, he said, the principal would apply that what a man does by another he does by himself. 'But this' he said, 'by no means allows a stranger to in trude himself into the business of a voter, who alone can determine wheth er he would pay tax as a qualification for voting or not The custom has prevailed in this city, and been exten sively practiced, of obtaining names of voters from the assessment list and without the consent of the voter, and even without his knowledge, having taxes paid for hint.' This, the judge thought does not constitute a legal pay ment of tax, because it is not dtno by the voter directly or indirectly and f is an unauthorized act of a stranger | on whom the law confers no such . rights. If the defendant in the case ! before hini, he said, had accepted the , prosecutor's vote, he would have been j more properly chargeable with viola ting the law than by the act for which he was indicted. The jury returned a verdict of not guilty aud put the cost upon the pros ecutor.—Harrisburg Patriot. \OTICE. MeetiiiK ol Ropnhlioan County Committee.

PITTSBUUU, March 23.—The boiler test yesterday afternoon at Munhall Farm, near this city, was aconspicious success. It was conducted by D. T. Lawson and witnessed by a number of United States officials, scientists and representatives of insurance companies. Mr. Lawson has a theory that boiler explosions are caused by a sudden ex pansion of water into steam. On Mon day he supervised at Munhall Farm a test of a thirty inch boiler which con tained a horizontal perforated dia phragm running its entire length and located about at the water line. The object of this diaphragm is to prevent explosions when a vacuum i 3 created in the boiler by the release of steam. When, at the test on Monday, the guages on this boiler showed a pres sure of 300 pounds the valve was open ed, but no explosion followed. On Tuesday the diaphragm was cut out and the same boiler was subject to another test. When a pressure of 235 ponds was indicated the valve was opened and the boiler exploded into a hundred fragments. The test was com menced with twenty three inches of water, and when the explosion occurr ed the boiler contained twenty-two inches of water. Very little of the boiler could be discovered. The larg est piece found is two feet long by ten inches wide. Some of the fragments are torn into ribbons and strings. The boiler was new, and in strength above the average. It was made in this city especialy for this occasion. Another feature of the explosion worthy of special mention is that the fragments found which contain seams show that the rivets were not sprung. Seams have heretofore been accounted the weakest parts of a boiler, but in this case it was the iron plates that were torn like calico, and not the seams. Scientists have been watching Mr. Lawson's experiments with great in terest, and those present at the tests on Monday and yesterday confess that he has demonstrated the correctness of his theory.
