J. DEMOCRATIC U IN E EIGHTH. Fears of Republican Success Cause an Attempt at Peace. ALL AGAINST NORTHAMPTON. Monro., Carbon and Pike Bald to Con template an Arrangement Against the Other County. There is a report thnt the Demo crats in the Eighth Congressional District are endeavoring to patch up thoir difference in viow of the pros pects of Judge Kirkpatrick being elected to Congress. A bait has boon hold out to the Monroe county people in the shape of an offer from Barber, the Democratic candidate ol Carbon county, to combine Monroe, Carbon and Pike in nn alliance against Northampton in future cam paigns. This information comes from Monroe and is authentic. The Monroe and Pike people are opposed to allowing Northampton more oon- ferrees in Congressional conven tions than any of the other counties, and it was that led to the bolt, the nomination of Hart and his subse quent withdrawal. The Monroe people, led by ex-Col- loctor Staplos, Dr. Shull and Editor Morey, of the Stroudsburg "Demo crat," were not ready to give up the fight whon Hart withdrew, and they lot it be understood that they wore still fighting. A day or two ago Barber had a conference with Staples and proposed that these throe counties enter into an agree ment whereby Carbon was to have two terms, Monroe two terms and Pike one term in Congress before the counties would agree to give Northampton another term, this proposition being based on Monroe stopping her disaffection and turn ing in for Barber. It is said Staples rather inclined to enter into the agreement but asked time. It is now said ho fears that Barber is only playing for points, and that Monroe will be loft out in the cold, as ex-Congross Mutchlor has a big pull in Carbon and might be able to influonce the conferrees there in fu ture to break the proposed agree mont, in which event Mutchler would have no mercy on Staples and Shull. Mutchlor is recognized as a figh ter. He is still hurling hot shot at Staples and Shull through his news paper, showing that he does not be lieve their strength is sufficient to effect the result this Fall. At the same time, those who have been in Monroe know that the Shull-Staples following is large and is up in arms. It is also just possible that North ampton has some friends here in Pike who might not be agreeable to this arrangement, and if made it is questionable whether the parties to the bargain can deliver the futures. There are some men left in Pike who have had enough of unfulfilled promises, and the taking advantage of accidental situations who might make it exceedingly interesting for this sort of a combine. If Barber is attempting to play Hottentot with Mr. Mutchlor he is only following the lead of his illus trious predecessor and may like him feel at some time in the future that he would like some convenient or soft spot on which to light.

A nig Day For Free Silver and Bryan Flag Hailing, Parade and a Funeral Servloe In the Evening. Mo Free Heer In It. It was a field day for our friends the Democrats Wt Saturday. In anticipation of the frost which will nip their blossoms a little later on they concluded to crowd in all the glory possible and have a good time before the election. In the aftornoon a very handsome Bryan and Sewall banner was raised across the street in front of the Court House, but why they did not put "Tom" Watson on one side of it 19 only known to themselves. In the evening a very creditable torch light parade took place, there were probably 100 torohes in the line, though boys manned some twenty of thorn. The display was good and the parade orderly, and we had the assurance both by thoir appearance, and the declaration of ft prominent participant that the usual concomit ant of free boer had been tabooed. The strictures of the Press on this potent Democratic auxiliary have evidently borne good fruit. We hope they will preserve the cage in which the two animals wore con fined, also the several transparencies shown and place them on exhibition after Nov. 3rd. They may be good things to chew on. The speech in the Court House after the parade was a gem in its way. The orator, Mr. D. J. Green- leaf of Port Jorvis oould not be called a very enthusiastic apostle of free silver. Ho read a long rambling history of the constitution, Solo mon's Temple and some other things in a perfunctory manner and with a kind of "clammy" voice which did not awaken much interest in his hearers, and failed to call forth even a cheer for the candid ates., He declared that he had been a Republican but that in his wander ings after truth he came to the forks of a road where there was a sign board 16 to 1 and he took the sixteen way because he had long whiskers like Peffer. At least that must have been the reason for he gave no other. He read the provision of the constitution empowering the United States to coin monoy and regula te the value thereof, and said with a tra- gio air that clau se proved that silver and gold may be coined. He denounced the crime of 1873 of course, and In the face of Sherman and others declared the act was passed by stealth, and was a fraud on the peoples rights. He went back to the Bible to prove that the ratio of 18 to 1 was the true one, and asked how our country will ever get out of debt unless by making more money? He said the question was asked how the farmer would be benefitted by the free and unlimited coinage and that was the easiest of them all, and this is how. It would start the silver mines booming, the miners would be paid say 1100 per month, and a mine owner employing 1000 men would pay out one hundred thousand new bright shining silver dollars as wages and the laborers would buy produce of the farmers and pay them in silver dollars, and so the farmer would get it, that is he must work for it the same as now but the unlimited demand ere. ated in this way for bis produota would be his benefit. Not a word was said about the poor silver mine owner who would pay his men in dollars worth 50 cents, and pocket the other 50 as profit. He is too sacred an object to be spoken of in such a manner. It was not even hinted that he would increase his donations to the churches or give away any of his hard earned dollars. We hope our friends will have more siieeches of tins same sort, and in duce every Democrat who wants to really know about free coinage to attend. At the conclusion the only noise made was a scamper to get out of it, they forgot to pheer any body or anything and seemed to be really glad that it was all over and wasn't any worse, and that tliuy had lived through It.

At the last meeting of Vander- mark Lodge No. 828, 1. O. O. F. of Milford the following resolutions were unanimously adopted : Whereas, It has pleased an all- wise and over-ruling Providence in whose hand the stronger material ties on earth are but as brittle threads to again enter and by the ruthless hand of death deprive us of the companionship of one of our most esteemed members our worthy brother Frank Miller. Resolved. That while we deeply deplore the loss of our f riond and brother we would bow in humble submission to the mandate of him in whom we live, move and have our being knowing that as God cannot ere in his decrees though inscrutable and and beyond our feeble comprehen sion are wise and just. Resolved. That we aro aware of this severe affliction of the widow, and relatives of the deoeased broth er sympathize with them in this the hour of their bereavement.

Resolved, That a copy of these resolutions be furnished under the seal of the Lodge to. the family of the dooeased brother and that the said resolutions be published in the Pike County Press and Milforu Dis. patch, ( Fred Beck, Committee Chas, Qumir, ( Chas. Lattimore, Mill Burned. The Saw mill and Stick factory of Benjamin F. Klpp located at Green, town this county was entirely des troyed by fire Wednesday evening, Oct. 7. There was in addition to the water power a steam engine and it is supposed the fire originated from a hot journal. There was no insurance, and tho loss on mill and machinory will be fully 12500. Baxter B. Kipp who manufactur ed umbrella handles in the same mill lost a car load of these goods which were ready for shipment. His loss will be about $700, in addition to the above. We are informed that it is not likely the mill will1 be re built. It was erected some 40 years ago by John Kipp the elder now deceased. KIRKPATRICK WILL WIN. Demoeratln Paper of Monroe Connty Pre dicts His Hueoesa. The East Stroudsburg Nows.Dem- ocratic, gives up tho Congressional fight in this district, and predicts the election of ex-Judge Kirkpatrick, tho Republican candidate. The News says : "The PsiKiusnl of the doctrine of free silver and Populism this year would have completed the work of party demoralization, but the quar rel by which two candidates are were placed befor the people makes the election of a Republican Con gressman in this district for the first time in its history an assur ance which is doubly sure. The situation is a sau one for true and patriotic Democrats to contemplate. " Grand Rally In Montagne. The Popocrats of this township held a grand rally at tho Brick Houso Wednesday afternoon Oct. 7. The meeting organized by electing that old time Democratic Godifricd Wioland, chairman, who introduced ex-Congressman Towler. This gon- Heman proceeded to make a school boy speech, mixed with considerable blackguardism, and two or three stories. Then Augustus W. Cutler was introduced, by mistake as our present Congressman, Mr. Pitney holding that place at present and likely to so continue we think. "Gus" the honest talked for an hour and told the wonderful things he had done when in Congress in 1876, and what he expects to do whon he gets there this time and how he will start everything booming by aiding the free and unlimited coin age of silver. The house shook with applause at this sentimont. There were just forty-five voters present in the room one-third of whom were Republicans, and these with a dozen small boys made up the large and respectable crowd. Pike county Democracy was well represented by that great Chucktown orator "Dory" Bosler and his boarder, Wm. Holbert, Esq. , The meeting closed with three whoops for Bryan and Sfiwall. Montague. The Fourth Congreasional district should repudiate Augustus W. Cut ler, because he is a repudiator, a man who does not be lieve in paying honest debts in honest money. It should reject him bocause bo is not the equal of his opponent, Mahlon Pitney, in any of the qualifications for Representative in Congress. For selfish reasons and patriotic reasons, the district should elect Pitney. And we believe the ci fixer s of the Fourth know a good thing whon they see it. To prefer Cutler to Pitney wonld be a folly which would make State and coun try regard the voters of the Fourth as incompetent. Newark Sunday Call. REAL. ESTATE TRANSFERS. Shohola. J. B.

'Ton say yon want a little about the old soldiers. Well, my friends, the orisis which is approaching now, the question before the country now, ap peals to the old soldier a much as it did in 1861. I am not afraid that any man who risked his life in his nation's behalf is going to be influenced by the arguments that are addressed to the sol diers dow by the financiers," etc. Mr. Bryan at Milwaukee, Sept 6. Not one word in answer to the ques tion whether the purchasing power of the monthly pension payments to 970,. 000 pensioners would be reduced by the free ooinage of 16 to 1 silver dollars. Not a word as to the effect upon pen sion payments hereafter of the "ex termination" of the "200 cent dollar" because it is worth too much and buys too much. We do not assume that veteran sol diers are thinking of nothing but pen sions, but they should compel Mr. Bryan to say frankly what wonld be the effect of free coinage npon the pen sioner's dollar. Make him answer the question one way or the other. Exchange. An Object lemni In Sllrer. There is an American silver dollar. There are two Mexican dollars. There is more silver in each of them than in the Amerioan dollar. I bought both of them for that What is the reason? The sole reason is that onr dollar is a limit ed coinage, banked by gold. There is another coin. That is a French 6 frano piece. I paid 95 cents for that It car ries a little loss silver than the Ameri can silver dollar. France and the Unit ed States are both gold standard coun tries. They keep in circulation a then sand millions of silver, and Mexico and China and Japan have not got one dol lar of gold in circulation. The gold standard country can keep silver in cir culation. The silver standard oountry can keep no gold. That is the example of every nation today. Gold all leaves the free ooinage oountry. Gold and sil ver both circulate in the gold standard countries. From a Speech by Senator Lodge. Bryan's Rotten Egg; Artnmens. As a contribution to financial and eoonomio thought the following utter anoe of Mr. Bryan, made in Kentucky, is the most remarkable yet offered even by him: "If any man in this community would offer to bny all the eggs produced at 85 cents a dozen and was able to make good the offer, nobody wonld sell eggs for less, no matter what the cost of production, whether 1 cent or 5 cents a dozen. So with silver. Free ooinage would establish the market price of sil ver at $1.29, and nobody wonld sell it for a oent less." Why limit the prioe of eggs to 85 oents and of silver to f 1.29? If the rea soning is sound, the price in each case might easily be doubled, and the conse quent benefit to the human race corre spondingly increased. And why atop with eggs and silver? Why not mark np the prioe of everything you wish to buy offer to pay donble or treble what is asked for it and keep on paying that price to all comers hold it there? That's all you have to do hold it there. "Nobody wonld sell it for oent less, " says Bryan, so long as yon held it "So with silver. " And the man who is putting forth such thought aa this is a candidate for the presidency of 70,000,000 of people in the closing years of the nineteenth century! The Bargain Counter Candidate. "Some of the reports say that the women went wild over Bryan at differ ent plaoes along his roate," remarked! the horse editor. "That's natural," replied the snake editor. "He is the bargain counter oan-i didate." j "How so?" 1 "He wants to mark the dollar dowm to E3 cents. "Pittsburg Chronicle-Telegraph. 1 "We must do something tor silver. ' say tie cheap dollurites. Why? The value of the annual production of eggs in the United States is twice as large as that of onr silver bullion. Vet no body claims that eggs should be made a legal tender for debts. Looks Like Wilful Waste. A German friend who recently drove over a good part of the coun try, and noticed the thousands of bushels of apples going to waste up on the ground, remarked to us that he believed the American people to be the most wasteful on the face of the globe. This fruit in the old country would have been carefully picked up and either mode into cider then vinegar, or fed to the cattle, calves or hogs. There is a great deal in what our friend says. We may not always have a good apple year like this and if you don't wont this fruit, let some poor man gather them for his hogs. "A wilful waste makes a woeful want." Decker town Independent.
