Elyhtiny Crippled Soldiers. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 14 August 1868

Elyhtiny Crippled Soldiers. When Captain Godshalk was shot down on the battle-field and bravely submitted to the loss of a limb—almost life itself—in the, defense of our homes and the liberties we enjoy, the cry was heard everywhere : " honor to our brave defenders—they shall never be forgotten." Yet now we witness a most disgraceful attempt on the part of a ring of bold, corrupt and desperate men, banded together in secrecy—men who, during the war kept themselves far in the rear, playing the part of bounty brokers and speculators—to defeat this same Captain Godshalk and his equally brave comrade in arms, Major Rcinoehl! And why? Simply because they have been honest and faithful Representatives of the people ;—because they were not engaged pilfering and treasury robbing, committing mileage frauds, and selling their votes in the "Legislative lobby to the highest bidders. To this patriotic party or clique, or ring, or call it what you will, belongs the honor of trying to crush a...

Carbon County. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 14 August 1868

Carbon County. Our friends in Carbon are " up and doing." They have nominated the following excellent ticket: Congress—Daniel Kalbftts; Assembly —Capt. J. I). Laciar; District Attorney—Col. J. D. Bertolette ; Commissioner—Capt. James Thomas ; Coroner—Lieut. John Brelsford; Auditor—Lieut. Thomas Musselman. With such an eftbrt as the fire-tried Republicans of little Carbon are able to make, this ticket will be triumphantly elected, except Congress and Legislature, as the district of the former consists of Carbon, Wayne, Pike, Monroe and Northampton, and the latter of Carbon and Monroe, which also contains too much dead weight of bad copper even for such a popular nominee as Capt. Laciar, editor of the Mauch Chunk Gazette.

A Specimen. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 14 August 1868

A Specimen. Toombs, of Georgia, who doubtless yet expects to call the roll of his slaves in Boston, at any rate have a place in Seymour's Cabinet, in a late speech declared that he—Seymour—" had been true to the South—true in peace and true in war." As for Frank Blair, he spoke in terms of beautiful moderation, thus : "The Reconstruction acts are null ami void, anil xltatt not stand * * * The grinning skeletons which have been set up in our midst as legislators shall be ousted by Frank lllair, whom our party has expressly appointed for that purpose. All these things shall he swept away from the bosom of the country." The Lancaster Intelligencer indorses these sentiments as sound Democratic doctrine, and thinks them, like their author, eminently suited to the times.

GEN. JOHN F. HARTRANFT [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 14 August 1868

GEN. JOHN F. HARTRANFT REPUBLICAN C ANDIDATE FOR AUDITOR G ENJ-;I;AL OK PENNSYLVANIA. GEN. HARTRANFT was a citizen of Norristown, Montgomery county, and his first engagements in life were in connection with the construction of some of the improvements in that part of the State, he then acting in the capacity of a civil engineer. Later in life, young Hartranft devoted himself to the study of the law, to the practice of which profession he was admitted with great honor. After pursuing the law for some years, the war of the rebellion was precipitated, when the lawyer immediately became a soldier, and was called to the command of one of the first " Three Months' Regiments." In this connection it will be remembered that the Fourth regiment refused to go into a tight, because its time had expired while the battle was in progress. COLONEL HARTRANFT REMAINED ON THE FIELD WHEN HIS REGIMENT MARCHED OFF, AND WAS PLACED ON GEN. FRANKLIN'S STAFF, WHO COMPLIMENTED HIM FOR HIS BRAVERY. The c...
