moved to Kan nas In 1860 be was one of
tbe editors of the Kansas Farmer, and in
1869 became editor of the Daily Monitor,
published at Fort Scott. He was one of tbe
originators of the Kansas Historical Society
in 1875, and, until his removal from the
State, one of its directors. He was presi-

nominated and elected Governor of Kansas,
bat the canvassers of a number of the conn-
ties refusing to recognize the returns, the
Supreme Court declared the election illegal.
He was subsequently nominated for various
titate positions, but invariably declined. He
will be recollected by many of our people as
one of the Kansas State Commissi >ners
during the Centennial Exhibition in Phila-
delphia in 1876, whete he rendered so much
service in making the Kansas exhibit the
success that wan accorded it. About 1882
he removed to Colorado, where he founded
Junction City. He waB a very estimable

PAXTANU HKSQUI-CKNl KNNIAI,.

"The history of Paxtang Sesqni-Centen-
m*V % — edited by Matthias Wilson McAlar-
ney, is before u«, and we have examined its
coutents with no little interest. The edi-
tor deserves much praise for the manntr
in which he has performed his work,
and the only objection we raise is, that the
title is altogether too modest; for the work
comprises not only a verbatim report of the
proceedings on the day of the celebration, but
a great variety of information relating to the
historic old church, which is invaluable and
which every descendant of the pioneers of
Paxtang will rejoice to see collected and pre-



served in such a permanent and attractive
form, such as the marriage records of Rever-
ends John Elder and John Roan together
with the more complete record* of Rev. James
R. Sharon;— the notes on "Master Allen/'
that old time "autocrat of the school room,"
whose fame in Paxtang is second only to
that of Parson Elder;— tbe fnll and complete
tombstone record, to which is appended four-
teen closely printed pages of biographical
sketches of persons now sleeping in that con-
secrated spot — together with several other
items of like interest, rendering the book
exceedingly valuable to every one whose an-
cestors had any connection with the locality.
And the gensral reader will find himself
amply repaid by a perusal of tbe addresses
made at tbe celebration.

The topics are various, and all taken to*
gether form a most complete, interesting and
reada Me history not only of Paxtang Church
but of Presbyterianism in tbe region round
about; and in which the logic of events is
brought out in a masterly manner.

A PENNSYLVANIA OBR1HIN SOCIETY.



[Our friend, Frank R. Diffenderffer.of the
Lancaster New Bra, struck the right note
when he penned the I olio wing. Notts and
Queries will second any effort made to pre-
serve the records of the early settlement of
Pennsylvania, and we say with him, "Let us
have a Pennsylvania German Society."]

A movement has been started in several
parts of Eastern Pennsylvania looking to the
formation of a Pennsylvania German Society.
The plan suggested contemplates an organ!
zation Bomethiogjike that of the New Eng-
land Society in New York and the Holland-
Society. Tbe New Era is in hearty accord
with such a society, and believes that with
proper effort such a society cannot only be
organized, but may be made the instrument
of much permanent good. Until one studies
out tbe mission of such a society, he can
form no adequate idea ot the wide scope and
influence it may be made to include.

In recent years many writers have taken
the field in an attempt to place the German
immigration of the last century into this
State in its true light; they have endeavored
to show the character of the men who came
from the Fatherland, bringing with them
the best industry, thrift, morality and vir-
tues of the Old World. We are told that

they cared Utile for education, while the f ict
ie the school home and the church always
went up side by side. They hare been charged
with lnkewarmaess towards the cause of in-
dependence daring the Revolution. The
facts are that no people were sturdier or
more prompt in rallying in defense of their
imperiled liberties. They have been accused
of being an ignorant and uneducated race.
The now historical press at Bphrata and the
still earlier one at Germantown give the lie
to this charge. They led in the abolition
movement long before New England ever
dreamed of such a thing The protest of
Pa* tori as and his colony will be an ever-liv-
ing evidence of the devotion of the Pennsyl-
vania Germans to the principles of human
liberty and the inalienable rights of men.

Let as have a Pennsylvania German So*
ciety. Let us assert ourselves. Let us show
to the world how indelibly our ancestors
have left their impress on this nation from
ocean to ocean. Pride of ancestry within
certain limits is not only pardonable, bnt
highly laudable. Such a society would en-
courage this spirit and tend to set before the
world in their true light a people whose en-
ergies, virtues and powers have not yet been
adequately told.

and Elisabeth Kranse (see Erie's P«oomU

Boas waa a remarkable man, aod to him the
readers of Note* and Queries are in-
debted for much valuable informa-
tion relet iog to Wei history and
to personal reminiscences of the prom-
inent personages in the politics of our State
forty aod fifty years ago. His memory was
a retentive one, and no one loved roorv than
he to dwell upon the incidents in the lives of
many who long since passed from tha stage
of action. The daily newspapers furnish
full sketches of bis life, wbicb was an active
