Bangor, Me., Dec. 25. Excitement
was caused here to-day . by reports of
intended removal of arms and ammu
nition from the state arsenal to the
depot for transportation to Augusta.
About 5 p. tu. two truck teams loaded
with arms and ammunition were stop
ped on Kendaskeag bridge by a crowd
which rapidly increased so that the
streets were filled with people, declar
ing the arms should never be carried
out of the city. Mavor Brown demand
ed of the teamster the orders uqder
which he was acting. No satisfactory
answer was given at first, the man say
ing Thayer, the landlord of the Penob
scot exchange, had sent word for teams
to take the arms. A young man named
French then pushed through the
throng and said he was a clerk iu the
adjutant general's office and was mov
ing the arms to Augusta under orders
from the governor. The excitement of
the populace was greatly increased by
this statement, and the crowd at tern pi
ed to unharness the horses. The may
or told French he had net force easugh
to guarantee safety of the munitions
if the attempt to remove them was
persisted in while the people were ex

to have these arms removed: but he
wants election returns to be vouched
for by all the aldermen, county olliceis
and notary publics in the region of the
voting, and then throws them out if
there is a name spelled wrong.
There is a constant effort un the
part of the democracy (and fusion ists)
to justify this action by that of 'Lou
isiana. The circumstances are notsim
ilar. In Louisiana it was claimed, and
justly, that Republican voters were
not allowed to vote at all, or, when
voted, false returns were sent to the
State department, and a demaud made
that they be counted instead of the
Here the vote is undisputed, the ma
jority at the polls not denied; but 37
itepuoucan memoers are coolly, un
justly and in defiance of law excluded
from the legislature, and 37 democrats
or fusionists granted certificates on
the flimsy pretext that a name here
and there is spelled wrong; that one
judge of election did not siga the re
turn with his own hand , mid one popu
lous district was disfranchised, because
theclerk wiote "16 votes scattering,"
instead of enumerating each name.
If the Republicans submit to this
tamely we are mistaken, and the whole
loyal Norih should back them un in
obtaining right and justice.
While we feel very strongly about
this outrage, we cannot agree that
Garcelon and his men should be taken
out and hung, as Henry Watterson, the
I. O. and Lincoln Journal suggest, not
yet, any way.
The proper course is for all Repub
licans elected to meet in a separate
body, and proceed to transact the bu
siness of State; if they are then mo
lested, fight, and fight her out. Call
for U. S. troops to help, and if R. B.
Hayes don't send them this time to
protect an honest Republican form of
government, we'll tar and feather him
and impeach him beside.

The Address of Cass County's First Ci

Mechanic, Farmer, Merchant and
I. look back with pleasure upon the
year 1889, in which I rolled the first
cigar ever made iu Cass county for the
trade, especially when I reflect back
upon the manner iu which cigars are
manufactured for our western trade
in small, sickly dens in tenement
houses in the east, I am well aware
that if cigar smokers, or even dealers,
knew the manner in which the tobac
co is handled and treated in those sick
ly dens, they would spurn the touch of
an eastern made cigar as they would
poison. I here copy au article from
an eastern journal of science upon the
SECKKTS OF CICAK MAKINC2.
It is probably well Known that tlio greater
number of cigars manufactured of late years
h iv e been made in no-called tenement house
factories. Now, a word concerning the unsus
pecting smoker. It may be stated that tobacco
is a Bubi" tauce of such tender nature that it
will readily absorb foul as it does moist air ;aud
tobacco, exposed for a short time only to im
pure air, in case of sickness in the family. Will,
if made into cigars, disseminate the disease to
other places. The workman, whose family in
many case consist. of from four to eiulit chil
dren, beside himself and his wife, occupies in
most instances a ro on and bedroom. All of
them haw to sleep in this limited space, so
small, in fact, that it can be spanned by the
outstretched arms. About 1X) pounds of moist
or drying, in all cases strongly vaporing, tobac
co is constantly kept in these roomn. During
the working thereof this tobacco is shaken up,
and the lungs of its occupants inhale its dust
and vapor. Tobacco and its waste ara scattered
all over the floor of the apartments, and the
child which Is not able to walk i compelled to
roll about, on and amoni; t hese wastes, which
are not thrown away, hut agaiu worked into ci
gars, liirths and deaths occur iu the. midst of
this laboratory. All housework, such a cook
ing, washing ironing and cleaning of children
ha to be done the room where cigars are made.
It cannot poseibly be avoided that filth finds
irs wav into cigais made here, which are subse
quently pulled with the greatest relish by the
smoking population. Cigars made in these
factories are mainly sold in groceries, apothe
cary stores, and aleo in large and weluurnshed
cigar stores, whose owners do not manufacture
Now it would bo well to stop here
and avoid picturing out more plainly
the evil done by the suppoiters of
those heavy tobacco dealers in the east,
who employ help at the lowest figures,
in the manner above mentioned. But
the western dealers who deal in such
goods lend their aid in murderiag wes
tern trade, thereby closing up tlie ave
nue by which those poor, half-paid
workmen in the east miuht find their
wav through to the west, where Letter
prices could be paid them, and vura
fresh air can be found in which to
manufacture cigars of pure, unadnlr
terated and undyed tobacco, did our
home consumers and dealers patronize
the manufacturers of pure goods yea,
even at their own doors. Auw it may
be given as a reason for not dealing in
western or home manufactured cigars.
that better goods can be had for less
money in the east than Here, l-et us
look at this point of view in a truth
ful and impartial manner. It is well
known to most cigar dealers that for
the past seven years the tobacco crop
has fallen short, especially in line
giades of Ilavanna, which were gen
erallv used for fillers, the habitual
smokers thereby getting a ? trong ci
gar. Now upon this grade, or kind of
tobacco falling slmrt. the demand for
dark cigars immediately increased, as
the smoker thought the dark cigar was
the strongest. Therefore eastern man
ufacturers resorted to the use of poi
sonous chemicals lo produce thedesir
ed color. It is well known to most of
the trade that the dark co'or of the
eastern cigar is produced by rollieg it
over a few thicknesses of flannel cloth
which is saturated with some poison
ous liquid, and immediately turns the
cisrar dark when touched by it. The
question mav here arise: Do not the
eastern consumers know this? Why do
they use such cigars? We say that
they do know it, and hence more the
evil to our home industry, as be who
is able to afford a good cigar does not
smoke those cheap tenement-made
goods, but uses the imported Key West
or Havana cigars. What is the result ?
Home industry is crippled in this
branch of business, and many are
thrown out of employment,, still fur
ther tending to degrade the extensive
business in this country of cigar man
ufacturing, as when the demand lor
our home product is decreased, prices
lower, and, as a consequence, inferior
stock, poisonous drugs, and low-priced
labor most be brought into demand.
This is a fact very plainly shown by
the action of extensive eastern cigar
manufacturers, who have been labor
ing for four years to have a law pass
ed abolishing the necessity of every
cigar manufacturers name be
ing plainly printed upon every box
containing their goods. -What was the
reason for this? Simply the fact that
those men did not want their names
attached to such poor goods as now
come from their factories. This law
was passed one year ago, after four
years' effort, and now all that ia de
manded is the number of the factory
and the district on each box, and it is
now considered a guarantee f good
goods when the manafacturer's name
is found on his boxes, and it plainly
shows that that he proposes t support
the reputation of his brands by their
superior qualities, and is not afraid to
have the public know from whom such
It evidently is the duty r every cit
izen of our town to support our home
industries, and he who sends his or the
people's money east to support and en
courage the manufacturing of fraudu
lent goods when genuine pure goods
are manufactured almost at his own
doer, cannot have much interest in the
general welfare of our town or coun
try. A casual observer might not
think that this line of business did
much for this town. But I will here
here give a synopsis of what it has
During the year 1879 I have manu
factured 281,700 cigars and paid for
labor in this city the sum of $2,535.30
to cigar makers; also 281.70 to boys
for stripping tobacco, and the packing
and other expenses for labor, amounts
to not less than $472.00, making a to
tal of S3.289.00. I, therefore, do not
see that any other branch of industry
carried on in this town is more worthy
of the patranage of the worhing men
and the community at large than this.
and why we should send our money to
the east for an inferior class of goiU(ftn
and thereby cripple tho industries f
our ttrn country, I cannot see. It
cannot be doubted that many cigar
smokers Are suffering from diseases of
the, throat and lungs caused by the use
of dyed and tenement-made c'gars.
Yet the sufferers do not imagine the
canse. I use no poisonous chemicals
or dyt3 to give my brands of cigars a
false perfume or appearance. I use
use only the best brands of tobacco,
and am not ashamed to let it be
known from whom they come. -Therefore
to avoid fraudulent and poisonous
geods, and to promote the industrial
interests of our ewn county, it be
comes our duty to patronize home in
dustries. I trust that the farmer,
tho laboring man, the mechanie and
the merchant will note the truth and
justice of the above remarks.
I will therefore thank my many eas
terners for their past kind patronage.
and trust that my earnest endeav
ors to please them and their desire tft
promote the growth of our home tradS
will warrant me a continuance of tire
same, I remain. Very Truly,

A Civil Damage Case.
The story of a lady of Jones County,
Iowa well illustratv-s tluit it in not im
possible to remedy by law some part of
a wife's loss tlireuh her husband's in
temperance. The early yean of her
marriage were happy and prosperous.
Her husband was psssessed of con
siderable property, and was successful
in a business from which he realized
an income 01 uueen numireu uuiiars a
year. But habits of intemperance fas
tened themselves upon him. lie does
not appear to have been a gross drinker
of spirits; wine and beer were his
principal enemies, but these, excessive
ly as he used them, impaired his pow
ers, unfitted him fr labor, and render
ed him a'couiiruied drunkard. There
were in the tewn no less thii eight
saloons, which he frequented in turn.
and upon which, after his earnings
dwindled to nothing, ho was squander
ing his capital. The wife visited the
saloon-keepers, and unred them to
cease supplysng her husband with
liquor. Some of them assented; but
the husband on learning whv it was
refused to him, declared t
that if the prohibition were
removed, he would ab.iad n her
carry away their cliiid. Under
compulsion she went with 2iim to the
saloons, aud reluctantly gave her
consent that liquor might be sold to
him. When site had done this, her
prospect must have seemed dark. But
just in time for her relief the law was
passed declaring that the seller of
liquor shall pay i for the harm it does
She brought lawsuits against the eight
saloonkeepers vfor the harm done her
in making her husband a drunkard
and reducing her from affluence to
poverty. Most of them paid her some
thing to stop the suits. One of them
stood out and resisted her claim to the
end. The end was that the jury con
demned him to pay ten thousand dol
lars, to reimburse the money her
husband had squandered, and two
thousand more by way punishment
The dealer complained of this as un
just, because he only sold beer and
wine, and the wife gave him leave to
do so; and because twelve thousand
dollars was too much in anr case
The judges said that it was no matter
what he sold so that the husband was
made a drunkard by it; that he might
have known that a wife coming with
her hnaband to say he might buy
liquor only came because he compelled
her to do so. and did not really mean
it; and that twelve thousand was not
at all too much, considering the prop
erty and income the husband had
This sort of law, declaring that tho
seller f liqnor shall pay for the harm
it does, is what is called a civil damage
law. Good Company.
