Schuylkill county that Columbia Ili Ould have the Delegate As Lang As that county had this senator. Bui it ref Cha the appointment of or Irish did not suit the feeling of the Danville Junto he was not a Man of their Ltd cloy they therefore regardless of the Vic of the county expressed through their a title Gates started their old game of trickery to defeat the wishes of the majority and disfranchised the county. To carry out their plane they got up a seer meeting in Dane Tille of some three or far individuals and appointed a sput Lou Salt of conferees with John a hades at the head to meet conferees from Schuylkill which had been appointed vibe Knott to the Friend of or. Irish. By this Menns they effected to Weir object by a pooling Nathan Nathans of Fot Uville As a Delegate As will a seen by the following extract from the report of the Eom Minileo upon contested scat at the 4th of March convention from Columbia and Schuylkill Tateo senatorial Delegate appeared jaded cult Irish and Nathan Nathans and the District being entitled Only Tuune each contend the teat of the other. Is was perfectly Clear that or. Irish was elected by a meeting of democrats of Columbia but in his election there w As a provision that the democrats of Schuylkill a on arming his election not was there any conference Between the two counties con Corning him. It was alleged by him and is by no meant Iro probable that Columbia was entitled to Tho Delegate and that it was Well understood Anil conceded that Schuylkill would agree to any nomination made by v u. But there was no proof of ouch anti Iii Eitt. On the Oiler Ham or. , exhibited the proceedings of spa Renilo regular democratic meetings in the Rountrea the appointments of senatorial Runi cruel from Earh and the joint meeting end action of the to Idress electing him the senatorial Delegate. The committee therefore decided that Nathan Nathans be admin Lvi to his seat As senator isl Delegate from Clits District. They thus succeeded in not Only again defeating the expressed voice of the county but in Dis franchising her of her rightful representation in the convention. How much longer Wilt the democracy of Columbia Bounty permit themselves to be insulin us und abused by Theao Danville disorganized who have uniformly when they could not can Arol the county conventions raised an opposition against the regular nomination to distract Aud Divide the party regardless of to it Tho consequence provided their on it selfish ends could thereby lie advanced a Short time will determine.

Tha fart of ill Danville Junto having by hair usual Gam of trickery and deception Defeated the wishes of the germans and prevented them from being represented on Tho Bench of Tia county has created As we Esper Tad quite a sensation among that numerous and worthy class of our citizens. From the tact of their being a Many German in the county it has always been a conceded Point that one of the associate judges should be a Man capable of speaking both languages and it a been left for the present Danville faction in addition to their numerous encroachment of the rights of the people of the county to Bow rend asunder the 1 last link in the Chain of forbearance by depriving tha a Croton population of att associate judge whom they could approach without being compelled to employ in interpreter. But this treatment is in entire unison with All their former acts and opinions expressed by word As Well As by acts that As was publicly proclaimed by a prominent member of the Junto a a they Are All a sell of ignorant dutch hogs a and of course Aro not to to consulted.
