Our Candidates
(Column 01)
Summary: Reports on the nominees picked at the County Convention. Has especially high praise for George Skinner, nominated for the Legislature, and Samuel Worley, nominated for Commissioner. Ends by declaring Democrats the white man's party, and predicts overwhelming defeat for Radicals.
Full Text of Article:

The proceedings of the Democratic County Convention will be found in another column. It is not too much to say that it has presented a ticket in every way worthy of the suffrages of the people of Franklin county. Its deliberations were characterised by the greatest harmony and good feeling. There was no wrangling and not the slightest bitterness exhibited by one member towards another. All seemed to be animated by a common purpose, to nominate a ticket that would be strong before the people, and, if elected, that would reflect credit upon the Democratic organization.--The candidates are such as every Democrat can vote and labor for with pleasure.

For Assembly, the Convention renominated Captain George W. Skinner, by acclamation. It is hardly necessary for us to say anything about this nomination. Capt. Skinner, although young in years is so well known to the people of the county that no words of ours are needed to acquaint our readers with his merits and his services. Entering the Union army when a mere boy as a private, he served his country faithfully until the close of the war, distinguishing himself by his coolness and gallantry, and winning (although a strong Democrat) from a Radical administration a Captain's commission.

In 1867, he was nominated as the Democratic candidate for County Treasurer, and although his competitor was one of the most popular men in the county, Capt. Skinner was elected by a majority of 251.--Last year, just as his term of office as Treasurer was expiring, he was nominated for the Legislature. His opponent was a gentleman of high respectability and acknowledged integrity and ability, but such was Capt. Skinner's popularity that his majority over the Radical candidate from Franklin was 415. In the Legislature he was faithful and efficient. Whilst the majority of the members were at all times willing to sell their votes for the highest price offered, no one dared to impugn the integrity of the member from Franklin. His hands were not soiled with bribes. He was honest in the discharge of his duties, voting on all questions according to his best judgment as to what the interests of his constituents demanded. He labored most assiduously for the Border Claims Bill. We had opportunities for judging, having been on the ground the greater portion of the Winter, and we feel it our duty to add our testimony to the unselfish devotion manifested by our representative. He labored with commendable zeal for the advancement . Had Governor Geary not arrayed himself in deadly hostility to the bill, there is no doubt whatever that the energies of Capt. Skinner and Senator Durham would have ensured its passage.

We believe that notwithstanding the hostility of Governor Geary to the Border Claims Bill, it will pass during the coming session, and pass over the Governor's veto. The Governor seems to be a constitutional tool, incapable of looking upon the people of the border counties in any other light than that of "thieves and robbers." But in our judgment, the prospect is good that, with proper management, the members of the Legislature will recognize the justice of our claims, and make haste to discharge the obligations of the State. To insure this result, it becomes our people to return to the legislature one who has rendered us such signal service and who now understands our trials and is possessed of the knowledge and experience at Harrisburg that will enable him to do far more for us than any new man could possibly do.

For Commissioner, the choice of the Convention is to be commended. In view of recent transactions, it was demanded by the people that a man of unimpeachable integrity should be nominated for this office. There was a general cry for an upright and honorable man, one who would not disgrace the party by suspicious complicity with paying jobs. This Borough presented Samuel M. Worley and the nomination was conceded and given to the town. Mr. Worley is an honest mechanic, one who has earned his bread by the sweat of his face, and who is held in high esteem by his friends and acquaintances. He is a man of excellent business capacity and sound judgment. His mechanical skill will be of great service to the people if he should be successful at the polls. In the giving out of bridge contracts for instance, it is very desirable that at least our member of the Board of Commissioners should have some scientific and practical knowledge of the work that is to be done. He is honest and he is capable.

He has a strong claim upon all Democrats for their support. He has never been found untrue to Democratic principles. Whilst others have wavered he has been staunch and true. He is one of the hardest workers on election day to be found in the county. He labors from the opening to the closing of the polls for the success of the Democratic ticket. The Democracy can, therefore, rest satisfied that for this office they have a candidate who is indefatigable and who will do everything in his power to secure his own election. Let his efforts be seconded by every Democrat and victory is certain.

Peter McFerren, of Guilford township is the nominee for Director of the Poor. He is a man who is respected wherever he is known. By his excellent judgment and practical knowledge of business affairs, he is admirably fitted for the position of Director of the Poor. He is a man, too, who favors rigid economy in the management of public affairs as well as individual matters. The people can therefore expect of him that not a dollar will be uselessly spent, and that every dollar spent must be accounted for.

No better selection could have been made than that which has been made for Jury Commissioner. The present Democratic incumbent of that office is a gentleman in every way capable of performing its duties. And Mr. Elias Patton, the nominee, is no less capable. He is an exceedingly careful man. He will not consent to put any man into the jury box whom he does not regard as a safe person to decide upon the rights of life, liberty, and property. He is not one of those who will put a man's name into the wheel just because he is asked to do so as a personal favor to some fellow who is over anxious to serve his country in that capacity, on account of the little notoriety it gives him in his township, or perhaps simply to see his name in the newspapers. Mr. Patton will select men who are competent to sit in judgment upon the great issues which are constantly being presented in our courts wherein the rights of our citizens are to be determined.

For Auditor, we have Mr. John A. Selers who is known to everybody in St. Thomas township and to many in the county as a skillful accountant, a correct and honest business man, a gentleman of admirable social qualities, and a Democrat of unswerving fidelity.

Such, Democrats, is your ticket. It commends itself to your support. It is composed of good men and true. Besides it is a white man's ticket, and stands on a white man's platform. The principles announced by the Convention which nominated this ticket have the true Democratic ring. They are the principles which are taking hold of the Conservative minds of the country. Everywhere there are dissensions in the Radical ranks. The moderate men of that party refuse to go further with the extremists, and a general alarm has been signaled. The Radical party is disintegrating. It has lost its cohesive power. The people have become disgusted, amazed and horrified at the terrible extent to which they have been plundered. The cry for reform is going up and politicians must heed the cry or go down to defeat. We have faith in the glorious triumph of the Democracy.

Full Text of Article:

Convention reassembled at the hour named. Mr. Stenger moved that John A. McAllen be substituted as a delegate from Metal township in place of Fletcher Noble, who was compelled to leave by the 1 o'clock train.

On motion of J.M. Shillito, Capt. Geo. W. Skinner was renominated for Assembly by acclamation. Being called upon, Capt. Skinner returned his thanks to the Convention coupled with a few pertinent remarks upon the Border Claims Bill. He spoke as follows:

Mr. President and Gentlemen of the Convention: I thank you heartily for the mark of approbation which you have seen fit to bestow upon me. This is the third time I have been honored at your hands. I have ever tried to show myself worthy of your trust. Errors may have been made, but they were errors of the head and not of the heart. My last position was a trying one, and had I been less unselfish I might have acted differently, but I thought it was my duty to do anything and everything for my county. Our border bill failed on political grounds. Its friends were found on the Democratic side and its enemies among the Radicals.--The vote on the bill shows this. 15 out of the 16 votes in favor of it were Democratic. To such matters, however, so it stood. But I think the time has come for action. Better that the interests of the Democratic party should suffer to a certain extent than that our bill should fail to pass entirely.

I believe these claims ought to be paid and I think they will be paid. In no other county was the loss of life and property so great as in this, and none other responded more promptly and willingly to the call for men. We have a right to demand relief.

Had the men who went from here remained to protect their homes, we would not now be asking relief, but Chambersburg would be standing to-day with its ancient houses--time-honored and hallowed by old associations--monuments of our fathers childhood.

One day these claims, I repeat, will be paid. I have too much faith in the State of Pennsylvania, and I have too much faith in the inconsistency of Governor Geary to believe otherwise. For although in the presence of a reliable witness I heard Governor Geary declare that the people of the border counties ought to be ashamed to ask the payment of their claims, yet I think like most politicians he can be made to feel the force of a change of front.

In conclusion, I thank you for the privilege I have had of speaking to you, and again for the honor which you have conferred upon men.

On motion, Convention proceeded to nominate a candidate for Commissioner which the following named gentlemen were placed in nomination: Samuel M. Worley, Dr. John Montgomery, B. Frank Nead, Jacob S. Brand and Martin L. Hammond. By request of Mr. Hammond his name was withdrawn as a candidate. The Convention then proceeded to a ballot with the following result:

1st ballot. 2d ballot. Worley 33 50 Montgomery 19 1 Nead 20 24 Brand 7 4

Samuel M. Worley, of Chambersburg, having received a majority of all the votes cast, was declared the nominee for Commissioner. On motion his nomination was made unanimous.

The Convention next proceeded to nominate a candidate for Director of the Poor, when the following named gentlemen were put in nomination: Jacob J. Miller, Wm. Brand, Jacob Hefflefinger, Solomon Brake, Peter McFerren and Peter Brindle.

1st Ballot. 2d Ballot. Miller 21 20 Brand 11 4 Hefflefinger 4 0 Brake 8 3 McFerren 35 49 Brindle 2 a a withdrawn

Peter McFerren of Guilford Twp. having received the majority of all the votes cast was declared the nominee for Director of the Poor. The nomination was then made unanimous.

The Convention next proceeded to nominate a candidate for Jury Commissioner, when Elias Patton, Wm. Boyd, Thomas Hollar, John Gilbert and Joseph Gilmore were put in nomination and balloted for with the following result:

1st ballot. 2nd ballot. Patton 23 40 Boyd 4 a Hollar 7 a Gilbert 17 21 Gilmore 22 17 a withdrawn

Elias Patton, of Peters, having received a majority of the votes cast on this ballot was declared the nominee, and his nomination made unanimous.

Jacob Hambright, John A. Sellers and Charles Ditslear were then put in nomination for Auditor, and balloted for with the annexed result.

1st ballot. Hambright 30 Sellers 45 Ditslear 4

John A. Sellers, of St. Thomas having received a majority of all the votes cast, was declared the nominee. The nomination was made unanimous.

On motion of Milton A. Embick, the Convention proceeded to ballot for Congressional Conferees. The ballot resulted in the choice of Col. B.F. Winger, W.S. Stenger and John R. Orr, Esq.

On motion of Henry Black, J. Logan Kennedy and Martin Ludwig were appointed Legislative Conferees.

On motion of Geo. M. Stenger, Esq., the following resolution was adopted:

Resolved, That each Delegation from the Rural Districts shall name one person, and the Delegations from the North and South wards of Chambersburg shall each name two persons who shall constitute the County Executive Committee, with Augustus Duncan as Chairman.

Mr. M'Lellan, as Chairman of the Committee on Resolutions, reported the following:

Resolved, That the Democracy of Franklin County in Convention assembled, appeal to their Conservative fellow-citizens, whatever may have been their party affiliation heretofore, to unite with them at the approaching election and rally under the banner on which is inscribed--OPPOSITION TO RADICALISM.

Resolved, That the use of the power of the General Government, and the high-handed outrages of the Radical leaders to force negro suffrage upon the States, against the will of the people, as shown in the means employed to procure the fraudulent ratification of the Fifteenth Amendment, have made manifest the deliberate purpose of the Radical leaders "to put all the States of the Union (all of them more or less, and some of them entirely) under the domination of negroes, to Africanize a large portion of the country, and degrade the white race, morally and socially, as well as politically, to the low level of the black." To this scheme, so discreditable to white men and so dangerous to the republic, we are unalterably opposed and, therefore, present today for the suffrages of the people, a white man's ticket on a white man's platform.

Resolved, That the reconstruction policy adopted by the Radical majority in Congress has been the fruitful source of woe to the country. It has presented the amazing spectacle of States unrepresented in Congress five years after the termination of the war. It has afforded an opportunity for obscure Northern adventures to settle in the South and, by pandering to, and associating with negroes, to procure their votes to elevate them to offices of trust and honor. It has enabled negroes to be elected to seats in State Legislatures and has elevated one to the high position of United States Senator. Under its baneful influence, anarchy reigns in North Carolina and peaceable citizens have been arrested without warrant. Military officers defy the processes of the Courts, and the Radical Governor of that Commonwealth approves of their conduct. President Grant gives his sanction to these outrageous proceedings. All this has been done to overawe the Conservative people and keep them from the polls, so as to insure a victory for the Radical ticket at the election being held this day. Such infamous conduct deserves the severest condemnation of all who love liberty.

Resolved, That the true greatness and glory of this nation is promoted largely by the prosperity and progress of its laboring classes, and therefore we must deprecate the introduction of the Chinaman as a competitor in our varied industrial pursuits, for the reason that he is never likely to become an American citizen, and for the additional and more important consideration that his cheap labor will tend to the degradation of our own laboring man and his posterity.

Resolved, That we demand as a matter of right and justice, redress from the State for losses and damages sustained by the citizens of the border during the progress of the late rebellion. And we would urge our candidate this day selected for the Legislature, (if elected) to bend all his energies, as he has done heretofore, to secure this result.

Resolved, That we condemn the course of the Hon. John Cessna, our present Representative in Congress, for this reason--among many others--that he has done or attempted nothing during his Congressional career looking to the reimbursement of the State or payment of our citizens for losses and damages sustained during the late rebellion.

On motion the following resolution was adopted:

Resolved, That the thanks of this Convention are due to Col. B.F. Winger for the able and impartial manner with which he has discharged the duties of the Chair.

On the motion to adopt the resolutions Mr. M'Lellan made a forcible address. He was followed by W.S. Stenger, Esq., in a brief speech. The resolutions were then unanimously adopted and the Convention adjourned.

Snubs his Colored Constituents
(Column 04)
Summary: Relates a story of Cessna snubbing his black supporters by not appearing in front of a crowd of them to speak and accept their thanks. Sees it as another example of Cessna's duplicity and speculates he may not even get the black vote in the election.
Full Text of Article:

The Bedford Gazette of the 4th inst. gives the following account of a compliment tendered to Hon. John Cessna which he failed to appreciate. He seems to have been afraid to "face the music." He likes begs that they will not ask him to "speak in public on the stage" to a colored assembly. The Gazette says: "Last Friday evening the colored 'battalion' of waiters at the Springs, reinforced by Bedford darkies, came to town, in brilliant procession, with torch and transparencies, and marched and counter-marched through our principal streets. Passing along Jullanna street the procession left-flanked and right-flanked, then halted in front of the residence of the Hon. John Cessna. The Colonel commanding the "colored troops" then, in stentorian voice, called out, "Attention! Battalion! Three cheers for de 'onorable John Cessnah!" The three cheers were given with a breadth and depth of yell such as the throats of Fifteenths only can produce. Now comes a dead silence--a painful waiting for "de 'onarable" to make his appearance. But the manipulator of the contested Congressional elections, and the writer--by proxy--of the famous letters to Franklin County Africans in perfect keeping with his character as an artful dodger, failed to present himself to his noble brethren, and thank them for the honor conferred upon him by their "cheering" presence. Full five minutes waited they, but no John came, when the commandant of the forces gave the order: "Attention! Battalion! About face, forward march!" and the whole party turned away in disgust at the manner in which they had been treated by "our member." The majority swear they will not vote for John this fall, and we should not be surprised if they kept their word. They were shamefully snubbed, and "de 'onerable" had better fix it up the best way he can."
