"POOR PEOPLE," [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 18 December 1868

"POOR PEOPLE," The Reading Eagle is constantly harping about "poor people'*—for political effect, of course—and claims to be their special champion and friend. In a late issue, intending merely to refer to this oenstant palaver about the "poor," we remarked derisively, in a single one-liner, that "the Reading Etujle loves poor people." This gave the editor another pretext for spreading himself on the everlasting "poor" man, saying: "The Eiujlt does love poor people, and it endeavors to represent their interests—the interests of the workingnien, the plow-holders; in short, the tax-payers," etc. Now, we contend, that to classify the workingnien, the plow-holders and the taxpayers among the poor , is simply a slander. The workingnien arc not the poor; on the contrary, they are the real lords of the land, who, by honest industry and the practice of economy—and, backed by intelligence and sound morals—know how to secure their own happiness and place themselves and families far abov...

OUR CONGRESSMAN [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 18 December 1868

OUR CONGRESSMAN The Washington correspondent of the New York Tribune has the following notice of our representative in Congress—Hon. O. J. Dickey: "Mr.Stevens'successor has been generally inquired after, and has thus far been perhaps the man most noticed in the House. Distinguished men have a way of being succeeded by very small ones, but the new representative of Lancaster has ¦ made a favorable Impression, where a favorable impression was hard to make. He is a thin, nervous-looking man, with hair and beard that show him to be no longer young, and a very intelligent face."

OLD JOHN BROWN [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 18 December 1868

OLD JOHN BROWN The Hartford Post, on the anniversary of the death of John Brown, spoke kindly of the good old man, whereupon The Times , the Democratic organ, flew into a towering passion. The Post of December 4 says: "Two things enrage our neighbor of the Times. Say to it that John Brown was not an assassin, or that N, B. Forrest was, or is, and you have our neighbor in as towering a-rage as one cares to look on. "We did not mean to harass the Times the other day when we laid our poor tribute to his memory on the old man's grave. We did not, indeed we did not, know or suspect that this old Tyranny, that nine years ago ruled all the land—but that now, thank God. is four years dead and buried—had provided in its will for a guard upon the sepulchre of Old John Brown, that no lover of Liberty and Bight might lay a rose or lily on his grave. * * „Well, well, neither we nor the Times shall have the placing of John Brown in history, either as "martyr" or "cattle thief." But he will ...

OUR BIO CONTRACT Our proposition to contract for the work of Pasting and Folding for the House of ; Representatives, at Harrisburg, during i the coming session, is so very reasonable as to lead to the general opinion tliat we will not fail to sec ure it. Considering this a foregone conclusion, we have al-; ready received a number of applications i for work in the Paster's and Folder's department. One of these applicants, a very worthy man, called on us-personallv and offered himself as a candidate for work.

CONU8ESS. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 18 December 1868

CONU8ESS. SENATE : In the Senate ou Thursday, the special committee to investigate the alleged impeachment corruptions, was continued, and a new standing one on Revision of Laws was created. The members of the various committees were then chosen. Mr. Sumner's Georgia hill and the Copper Tariff hill were referred. A discussion took place' as to whether the bill transferring the Indian J$Ureau to the War Department should hi deferred to the Military or to the Indian Affairs Committee, and it was decided to refer it to the latter. Mr. Wilson, ,of Mass., introduced a Constitutional omejldmont to prevent distinction of civil or political rights on account of color; also a franchise bill.

iaWJIUTlYE IXTKAVAtUNCE [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 18 December 1868

iaWJIUTlYE IXTKAVAtUNCE Our last week's proposition to contract for the "Pasting and Folding" for the Pennsylvania House of Representatives, during the coming session, has provoked ! considerable comment. Our neighbor of 1 the Daily Express goes in for stopping the eak in the manner propesi'd, and uncon-; ditionally endorses us as in every respect I able to do and perform whatever we may undertake. The Intelligence r, after trying to make a little political capital out of the matter, also favors our proposition. And we have good authority for saying tliat one «tf our Senators, General Fisher, has PltUUy declared his determination to favHWiie projjosed contract, at tiie proper tiiucftnd place, if submitted in writing by onrsewes. We also feel very sure that his collanftie.

THi: SUFFRAGE QUESTION [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 18 December 1868

THi: SUFFRAGE QUESTION The suffrage question is evidently destined to play nn important part in the deliberations of this session of Congress, for no less than four joint resolutions have been offered for amendments to the Constitution, ail being in substantially similar language, and declaring tliat "no State shall deny to or exclude from the exercise of any of the rights and privileges of an elector ' any citizen of the United States by reason of race or color." These proposed amendments were all referred to the committee on the judiciary. The subject of the naturalization laws will also come in for a big share of attention, several measures having reference thereto having been introduced. One of these provides that no naturalization papers shall lie issued within three months preceding any election.

[Communicated.] [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 18 December 1868

[Communicated.] MR. FATHER A BRAHAM:—rne Lancaster Express asserts that you or somebody else intend proposing to the Legislature, to do all the pasting and folding of the I louse for $5,000 a session. I hope this may be truC j and that you may get the job. It is evident there is corruption in this matter, for it is not reasonable that such a business should occasion the expenditure of so much as $40,000, as the Express says it does. Our members are somewhat too liberal with the public money, and aie too fond of making places for friends, whether -there is any vacant places or not. Can there not be a stop put to this ? LANCASTER.

92,414,816 641 Gov. Geary has issued his proclamation announcing to the people of Pennsylvania the gratifying fact that the State debt has been reduced the above amount during the year 1868. Wc question whether there is a State in the Union that can boast of so successful a management of its finances. Notwithstanding the immense expenses of the war, and the large appropriations made to soldiers' orphan schools, and the Common Schools, the debt of the State has been yearly gradually reduced by the judicious management of the two Republican Administrations of Govs. Curtin and Geary. The people will say, "Well done, good and faithful servants."

ALARMING 1 [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 18 December 1868

ALARMING 1 On Sunday last there were confirmed, at the Catholic Church in this city, upwards of two hundred persons, and the terrible part of the thing is that among the number were sen ml colored persons, who received the sacrament! What is the world coming too? Where are your thunders, Mr. Intelligencer? Pitch into them! This kind of thing will never do. What —colored individuals confirmed at the same time with whites, and in the Democratic city of Lancaster, too! Is it possible that white and black—Irishman and "nigger"—approach the Lord's Table together, and go to heaven together, too ! P-r-e-p-o-s-t-e-r-o-u-s! To be sure , the same Almighty Father created both races —the same Heaven will receive both, of their lives are approved by Him, but then it is not Democratic' . Wc expect to see the Intelligencer and its worthy partisans of sour-kraut-hill, pitching into this thing, and then, oh, Moses, how the fur will fly from Rome. The Catholic Church, to its immortal honor, b...
