The subsequent years in Pennsylvania exhibit con- 1701 to 1710. stant collisions between the proprietary, as owner of the unappropriated public territory, and a people eager to enlarge their freeholds. The scoldings of David Lloyd may be consigned to oblivion; the integrity of the mildly aristocratic James Logan, to whose judicious care the proprietary estates were intrusted, has preserved its purity unsullied by the accusations or impeachments of the assembly. Strifes also existed on political questions. The end of government was de- Chap XIX.} dared to be the happiness of the people, and from this maxim the duties of the governor were derived. But the organization of the judiciary was the subject of longest controversy. That the tenure of the judicial office should be the will of the peop

Their principal band removed from their hunting-fields in Kentucky to the head waters of one of the great rivers Lawson, 171. of South Carolina; and, at a later day, an encampment of four hundred and fifty of them, who had been straggling in the woods for four years, was found not Adair, 410. far north of the head waters of the Mobile River, on their way to the country of the Muskhogees. It was about the year 1698, that three or four score of their Logan, Mss. families, with the consent of the government of Pennsylvania, removed from Carolina, and planted themselves on the Susquehannah. Sad were the fruits of that hospitality. Others followed; and when, in 1732, the number of Indian fighting men in Pennsylvania was estimated to be seven hundred, one half of them were Shawnee emigrants. So desolate was the wilderness, that a vagabond tribe could wander undisturbed from Cumberland River to the Alabama, from the head waters of the Santee to

He was the sole author of two lotteries, that raised Logan's Mss. above six thousand pounds, to pay for the charge of batteries on the river; and he found a way to put 1747. the country on raising above one hundred and twenty companies of militia, of which Philadelphia raised ten, of about a hundred men each. The women were so zealous, that they furnished ten pairs of silk colors, wrought with various mottoes. Of the Quakers, many admitted the propriety of self-defence. I principally esteem Benjamin Franklin, wrote Logan, for saving the country by his contriving the militia. He was the prime actor in all this; and when elected to Chap.
