FRIDAY, AUGUST, !)th, 18S9.
The Republican victory of ISSB
has p'aced great and urgent respon
sibilities on the party. With the
Executive, the Senate and the
House Republican, the party must
take the entire responsibility for
what i9 done and what is not done
during the coining sessions of Con
gress. Whatever blunders or sins
it has committed in the past, says
the Chester livening News, they
have chieQv been those of omission
rather than of commission, or to put
it another way, a lack of that stal
wartism that characterized tne party
during the early drtys of its existence.
Parties like individuals, must have
character, and they must be brave in
maintaining what they believe. The
success of the Republican party has
been mainly due to the fact thrtt it
has been outspoken in its creed, and
aggressive in its character.
But it has had its periods of
doubts, and it lias sometimes falter
ed when it should have been resol
ute. Whenever it did so, it lost
prestage and power, and strength
ened the opposing forces. The
Democracy came into power not on
its own strength but because the
Republican party became too con
serative, too cowardly, too willing
to compremise, where compromise
was construed as a surrender. Had |
Republicanism been as stalwart since ■
1876 as it was before that time,
James G. Blaine would have been
•elected President in 1884. We lost
the victory bocause he wanted our
stalwartism, a id inst id of being ag
gressive plr.ced ourselves on the de
fensive. We may as well confess
that the two last administrations of
the Republicans were not of that
wart kind, but that they were tinct
ured with mngwuaipism. Had we
thrown those dangerous parties
overboard we Would not have gone
into the contest of 1884 with treason
in our ranks and sentimentality im
pairing the vigor of true party loy
The Democracy won through the
dissensions and divisions caused by
such a policy, but the Republicans
saw their mistake and renewing
their fealty to their creed and keep
ing in sight the old land marksi
they regained the powers they had
lost, and are now entrenched in both
the Executive and legislative branch
es of the government. Whether we
will remain there, or bo driven out
at the end of four years will depend
on whether we hate a strong, stal
wart administration. If we have
we will remain; if not, we may have
to walk the gang plank. The re
sponsibility rests wholly with us, and
we should be brave in accepting it.
There are live issues to be met,
and our party must meet them with
wisdom and courage. What we
need is an out and out Republican
administration —an administration
that will surprise no principle nor
policy, but will stand on its plat-
Form first, last, and all the time.
The duty of the President and Con
gress may be summed up in a sent
ence; to place Republicans in office,
and to carry out in legisiatlon a
thorough Republican Policy. We
believe the President will do his
part, and it only remains for the
Senate and House to perform theirs.
Every principle incorporated in the
national platform should be putin
practice. Faith without words is as
dead as a door nail. We want no
more of such still born theories.
Some of the important issues to
be met, are the tariff question, the
inrernational revenue taxes, the
protection of the colored people and
Republicans of the South in their
orivate and political rights, and
others of a minor nature. On the
tariff issue our party is pledged, and
it must act promptly and fearlessly
according to promise. It should
lighten or entirely remove the burd
en of revenue taxation, and if it
wishes to remain in power it must
Bee that all citizens have practically,
equal political rights. There must
be no equivocating, no hedging, no
deserting. The people expect
this, nay they demand it, and we
must obey.
The people decided that they did
not wish a continuance of a Demo
cratic administration, and hence
they placed the Republicans in pow
er. They ask for a return of the
old time stalwartism and noting
skort of that will satisfy them.
A Bible in the Flood.
The Pittsburg Dispatch relates,
the following remarkable incideut:
Three yoong men strolling along
the river bank in Mi 11 vale borough,
the other I eveninjg, saw lying in
the sand a Bible, all tattered and,
torn. One gave the book a kick,
the second man did the same thing,
but the third reproved his compan
ions for such a lack of respect to
ward the Bible, at the same timei
picking it lip, meaning to preserve
it as a relic. After lie had examined
it he found it was a family Bible
witli a complete history of a Mrs.
Catharine Davis of Johnstown, Pa.
That evening while he was speak
ing about the finding of the Bible to
a triend. the question was asked
what name the Bible contained, and
to the inquirer's utter amazement he
found the Bible to belong to his
wife's mother, who was drowned in
the flood. This gentleman was Mr.
John Wood, of Lewrenceville. His
wife is the daughter of the late Mrs.
Davis, of .lohustown, and the Bible
had floated down from the wrecked
city. OR the same evening Mrs.
Wood identified the book and it was
received by her as a legacy from her
dead mother, coming to her in a
most providential way.
Eagles mere Church.
In a decent issue we noticed at
some length the general plan of the
proposed chapel of St. John's in the
wilderness at EagiesMere, and noted
the change of site to the more
elegible and larger lot at the eorn
ner of 3 ones Street and the Muncy
Valley road. Matters hsve now
taken a definite shape and the Work
will be pushed to completion. On
Saturday last the Rev. Samuel P.
Kelly the indefatigable Diocesan
Missionary visited the Lake, spent
the whole day in calling upon the
people, and in the evening gathered
the Building Committee together at
the residence of Air. Hairy C. Clay,
where it was ascertained that there
was on hand in bank subject to the
Cheque of the Treasurer $1886,41.
in addition to this there is $lO6 or
"in the hands of a gentleman in
■Bethlehem $750,00 were subscribed
■during the day, making a present
total of $2730,41. The general plan
presented by Architect Jones of
New York, (a water Color sketch of
which is hanging in the Hotel
EagiesMere,) was adopted, substitu
ting a wood lor a stone tower. A
comniitte was appointed to secure
plans and specifications and obtain
bids and "push matters, so that
work may be begun during the
present month.
Mr. Jones is the Architect who
'designed "Wyno" the elegant sum
mer residence ofC. Laßue Munson,
just completed. The building com
mittee consists of Messrs C. La Rue
Munson of Williamsport, Mrs. Harry
C. Clay of Philadelphia, George
Smith, of Eagles Mere, and Lewis S.
Smith, of Muncy.
Hanker Jumicon's Syndicate.
The Phila. Record of last Satur
day says that a $4,000,000 syndi
cate to develop coal, iron and lumber
land in Eastern Pennsylvania is one
of the results of Banker B. J. Jami
son's recent trip to Europe. The
company, which is largely backed
by English capital, is to develop
100 square miles of land in Sullivan
county. Morton McMichael, of the
First National Band, is interested
in the scherfle.
The corporation is known as the
Central Pennsylvania Land and
Railroad Company, and is capitalized
at over $2,000,000 and bonds will be
issued amounting to over $1,000,000.
A number of saw-mills are to be er
ected, and the coal and iron which
it is believed exists will be worked
immediately. The Bloomsburg and
Sullivan Railroad has already been
acquired, and will be extended
northward to the Hernicecoal fields.
The Reading Railroad has recently
built a link from Rupert to Blooms
burg, giving it a connection with
the new developments. A large
business will be thrown over the
Rending Railroad.
Now then, should this move prove
successful it would necessitate the
running of a great many cars, and
as stated above, would throw
a large business to the Reading R.
R. In consequence thereof car
shops would be needed at some
point in this Bection and as Blooms
burg is the most convenient and
centrally located town of any im
portance along the division, it is
quite probable that with a little
work on the part of our citizens and
board of trade such shops might be
located here.—is-'e.

A Decision of Interest.
At the last session of the legisla
ture a bill w s ;is passed appropriating
$50,000 to defray the expenses of
the soldiers to and from Gettysburg
on the occasion of the dedication of
the monument September 11 and
12. A doubt existed as to who
would come under the provisions of
this'act and attorney-general Kilpat
rick was called upon to decide the
matter, rie has decided that to be
entitled to transportation the sol
dier's name must have been on the
roll, not only- prior to but at the
time of battle. The requirements
are that he must have been honor
ably discharged; that he must have
been a resident of Pennsylvania at
the date of the passage of this act
aud -{hat his organization must have
been participated in the battle.
