Dos Tinker With It.
The prayer of Republican politicians
and Republican newspapers now is,
that the Demccrats in congress may
make such mistakes as will create new
issues, and with these, bring to them a
new hope of continued lease of power.
If the situation at Waehington was
such that the Democrats could enact
such legislation as they pleased, it
might be possible that errors could be
committed in determining questions of
importance, that could be twisted and
presented to the public in a way that
would give to republicanism a hook to
hang its hopes upon. But as mat-
ters are, with a Republican occupying
the presidential chair and a republican
majority in the upper branch of con:
gress, it would be the most consummate
folly for the Democratic majority in
the House to attempt to change the
situation on the great questious that
now excite public attention, or to put
into legislation their ideas of what is
best for the people at large.
Unable because of a Republican Sen-
ate,or a Republican presidential veto,to
accomplish any great reform for the
people, it would be folly for the Demo-
cratic majority to make the attempt
and place itself and its party in
the position of being misrepresented
in the campaign of next fall. .
On the tariff question, every body
knows where the Democracy stands.
It can make no better record on that
subject than it now has, It could
stand on no better grounds before the
public than it now does, consequently
any effort that would change the silua-
tion and place the party in the attitude
of having to explain its new movement,
would simply be to weaken its position
and aid its enemies. :
"If the Democracy could secure the
adoption of its views on tariff reform,
it would be well to relieve the country
at once of the iniquities of the McKin-
ley bill. But in as much as that can-
alone, and a Republican Senate and a
republican President would both be in
the way of putting into the laws of the
tariff should be, it would simply be a
loss of time to attempt it. And the
same with any other material question
that may eater into the campaign of
Let the 235 Democrats who now rep-
resent the party of the people at
Washington, consider carefully before
attempting to change or better the sit-
uation. No good can come of any ef-
fort to accomplish that which itis im-
possible to accomplish. We are en-
joying the fruits of a Republican tariff.
Our fireless furnaces, silent manufac-
tories, and unemployed laborers, attest
its effects in every section of the coun-
try. The people voted to bave it just
as it is, and should be permitted to en-
joy the realization of their own work,
uatil they see proper to place the pow-
er of changing it entirely in the hands
of those who opposed the measure
that brought about these results. .

enough alone.

er for “protection” to raise his wheezy
| voice in denunciation of his own ad
ministration. It 1s over a week now
since President Harrison closed and
signed a new treaty with the Hawaiian
Islands which proposes absolute free
trade between that country and this.
The agreement stipulates in the plain-
est language that the Island named ad-
mit free of duty every article imported
there from the United States, whether
agricultural or manufactured, in return
for which this country will receive
without a tariff everything they may
send here. Ifthis treaty meets with
the approval of the Senate and is rati-
fied by the Hawaiian government, the
doctrine of unrestricted ‘free trade”
will have been recognized, and the ad-
ministration that wae elected on a high
protective platform, will be the instru-
ment through which it was accom:

Promises that Seem to Have Been For-
Prior to the election there was no
end to the stuff that was published in
Philadelphia papers about the prompt-
ness with which the republican courts
of that city would punish political
criminals, and the fearlessness with
which they would discharge their ju-
dicial daties,no matter whom it affect-
ed or whose political toes were pinched.
Their District Attorney was pointed
to as a perfect paragon of political in-
dependence and a holy terror to wrong
doers in every walk of life or political
position. The case of poor old JouN
BarpsLEY was held up as an evidence
that Philadelphia justice, knew no
distinction between those ecccupying
‘high social and political standing and
the veriest bum with whom the courts
had to deal. At the time, it was not
kept before the public that BarpsLey
confessed his crimes and that the courts
could not get out of imposing sentence
upon him, but it was heralded broad-
cast as a matter to be proud of, that in
imprisoning this old, broken down Re-
publican thief, the courts and the Dis-
trict Attorney had shown a fearlessness
and fairness that should make people
everywhere have confidence in their
independence and determination to do
their duty, let political consequences
result as they might.
This was before theelection. It was
during this time that the frauds on the
Treasury were coming to light and the
people were wondering if it would not
be well to change affairs by entrusting
power to other hands. It was at this
same time that the Mercantile Ap
praisement wrongs were brought to
the notice of the public through the
vigilence of a Democratic city Treasar-
er anil when the people were assured
that Philadelphia’s “reform” District
Attorney and Philadelphia’s indepen-
dent Judiciary would see to it that all
the rascals connected with the robbery
of the State and city as well as those
the Mercantile Ap-
praisement frauds, would be premptly
prosecuted and properly punished.
Ot these Mercantile Appraissors,
who were charged with defrauding the
State hy making false returns and com-
mitting all manner of crimes by which
the State and the city were robbed of
thousands of dollars, four were Repub-
lican and one a Democratic oficial.
All were politicians. The Republican
District Attorney who posed as a reform-
er, and made all kinds of promises, as.
sured the people that no leniency
would be shown to any of them, and
that the full measure of justice would
be meted out in each case.
This was before the election. It was
during the heat and excitement of the
campaign. It was when votes were
wanted for the Republican ticket and
confidence needed in Repnblican candi-
The election has been over now for
six weeks, and will some one kindly
point out what has been done to ful-
fill che promises made for Philadel-
phia justice ?
Poor, old BARDSLEY is in the Peni-
tentiary, it is true, but he was foolish
enough to confess and the courts could
do nothing else than take his word,
and punish him accordingly. Who
else of all the thieves connected
with him orin any way interested in
the frauds upon the State and city of
Philadelphia, has been punished ?
The Mercantile Appraisers have
been let off with simple dismissal from
office !
The State Treasurer and Auditor
General have been taken to the bosom
of the “dear people,” as persecuted and
wronged officials !
The ring that shared the booty
stolen from the people are unmolested
in their pursuit of other opportunities
to add to their plethoric purses!
The dealers in,*and distributors of,
forged tax receipts are at large and
without fear of prosecution !
Tell us will you, when and where
Philadelphia justice is to begin work ?
Some of our county papers
are booming his honor Judge Funsr,
tor the Supreme bench. With the ex.
ception of getting tangled in the “new
court house” and ‘drainage’ questions

quite well of late and can’t see why
these organs should wish to have him

Nothing In It.
The people who imagine that the
long and warmly contested struggle for
speaker of the present ccagress points
to the success or defeat of any parti-
cular aspirant for presidential nomina-
tion, are badly deceived. The fact is
that while individuals may have
claimed that the selection of the candi-
date of their choice would strengthen
the presidential prospects of this or
that man, the contest, neither in its, in-
ception nor its works of active political
canvassing, at no time hinged on the
personality or prospects of any pro-
rosed candidate for the presidency, nor
does the result strengthen or weaken
the chances ot anyone.
Politically both men represented
the same idea of tariff reform which
must of necessity be the shiboleth of
the Democracy in the coming presiden-
tial contest. On this question there
was no division of sentiment, as there
was absolutely none on any other issue
that may be included in the platform
of '92,
As to between the two principle can-
didates—Messrs. MiLrs and Crisp—the
contest was one of personal preference
alone. Those who were for Mr. MILLS
were for him, not because he represent-
ed ideas or candidates that were oppos-
ed by those who had other preferences,
but, for the reason that they believed
him to be entitled to the position and
entirely qualified to fill it. Those
who were for Mr. Crisp were for him
for the same reason, and the Republi-
can politician or Repuhlican paper
that aitempts to draw as a conclusion
that the result as finally announced,
has any general political significance or
was intended to have any bearing] on
the question of who should be the
next Democratic nominee for Presi-
dent, does it at the expense of truth
and in opposition to every fact devel-
oped while the contest was going on,
As 10 any way aiding or expressing
a preference for any presidential aspir--
ant, or indicating a backing down from
the position occupied by the party on
any important political question, the
contest for speaker had ‘‘absolutely
nothing in it.” The Democratic peo-
ple all over the country,with what ever
preference they may have, can rest as-
sured of this fact.
Has the Right Ring.
Republicans or others who bad
worked themselves up to the belief
that the election of Mr. Crisp as
speaker meant a division of Democrat-
ic sentiment on prominent issues, and
the backiug down of the party from
its position on the tariff question, will
not find much gratification in the ex.
pression of purpose as gizen by that
gentlemen in thanking the caucus for
the honor 1t had just conferred on
him. If there was any who had hoped
or feared that Mr. Cris» was not a tar-
iff reformer just as was Mr. MiLLs, or
that his success~meant anything else
{ than the success of Democratic prinei-
ples, justas we all understand them,
a reading of the following little speech,
will open his eyes to the fact of how
wrong such hopes or fears were :
“Representatives: Iam profoundly grateful
for this mark of your confidence and esteem.
I pledge myself here and now to deyote what-
ever of industry and ability I possess to.the ad-
vancement of the real interests of ther Demo-
cratic party. (Great applause). I begto say
now, as I speak to you my first words. since I
am your selection for speaker, that my elec-
tion means no steps backward in tariff reform.
(Prolonged applause and cheers). I beg to
say to you that there is in our party today no.
raan who more earnestly believes in the Dem-
ocratic doctrine of tariff reform than I do.
(Renewed cheers and cries of ‘bravo, bravo.’)
“After the long struggle through which we
have passed, when representatives are fa-
tigued, when other officers ave to be nominat-
ed, it does not become me to consume your
time. I beg to say, however, that during the
progress of this canvass I have said no word
respecting any individual which would at al!
justify him in having any harsh feelings of any
kind against me. I have felt that it was a
friendly struggle.
«1 have felt that we were all Democrats, and
I have feit that whoever might be chosen
speaker, whenever this house meets and or-
ganizes, we start as one body, working and la-
boring for a common cause—the principles of
the Democratic party. (Cheers). I thank you
again for your confidence and kindness, and
assure you that this whole contest has left in
my bosom no unkind feeling toward any mem-
ber of the house.” (Prolonged ‘applause and
cheers. )

men anyone ever looked upon, is the
little Republican minorty in Congress,
As Viewed by Others.
Under the head, “The Tariff couldn't
save it,’ the Philadelphia Herald re-
fers as follows to the failure of the
Nail Company at this place. We com-
mend its careful perusal to those most
interested—the workiagmen—who are
now out of employment, under the op-
erations ofa tariff bill, tor which they
labored so earnestly and voted so
unanimously, and hope that after a lit-
tle reflection, they will have the honesty
to admit just what the facts have prov-
en, that in supporting the doctrine of
“protection” they made a fearful mis-
take, not ouly for themselves but for
their employers as well. The Herald
says :
“The failure of the Bellefonte Iron
and Nail Company, announced within
the last two days, bas added another to
the long list of industrial mishaps that
have oceurred since the inauguration of
an administration that promised so much
for the promotion of business and the
benefit of labor interests. Failures of
firms and ccmpanies engaged in manu-
factures and employing working people
have happened by the scores since the
management of governmental and eco-
nomic affairs has been restored the
party devoted to the ‘protection’ of
American industry, nor has the number
been diminished by the additional twist
of the tariff screw 1n the shape of a Mc-
Kinley bill, but rather, under the in-
creased “protection” of that measure,
have these failures been multiplied.
Operations that haven’t collapsed have
testified to the “benefit” of a high tariff
by reducing the wages of their working
The collapsed Bellefonte works was
peculiarly an establishment that identi-
fied itself with the principle of protec-
tion. Governor Beaver the head, and in the Governor's eyes a high
tariff has always been regarded as the
mainstay of labor, the shield of produc-
tive prosperity and the cure all of in-
dustrial evils. How often and how edi-
fyingly the people of the State have
heard him epeak on this subject and en-
force with his-eloquence and logic the
claim that tariff must ba kept high in
order that manufacturing concerns may
be kept in operation and the employes
not be thrown out of employment.
“The workmen of this establishment
have been as fanatical and wrong-hsad-
ed on the tariff question as the proprié-
tors. At every election, when public
demonstrations were in order, they con-
tributed the largest part of the Republi-
can processions that howled for protec.
tion and flaunted banners, emblazoned
with the most orthodox tariff mottoes,
and denunciatory of the ‘‘free trade”
Democracy. They are the same work-
men who filled the street in front of a
Democratic newspaper office with a
howling mob that broke its windows and
made its inmates dodge a volley of
stones because the editor had questioned
the “protective” benefit of paving labor
with coupons redeemable in store goods,
and made other doubtful strictures on
the general blessings of the great Ameri-
can system of protection. They are the
same workingmen who on a November.
night three years ago were the principal
participants in a demonstration that
made the streets of Bellefonte lurid with.
a conflagration of barrels, store boxes
and. other combustible debris, and “vex-
ed the ear of night” and the defeated
Democrats with tin horns, horse-fiddles
and such like instraments of discordant
jubilation, in celebration of the trinmph.
of the party whose sole object was to
“protect” industry and secure to. the
workingman steady work and high
These poor fellows have been having
a pretty rough time of it since than. Iv
wasn’t many months after the great tar-
iff victory before they found themselves
compelled to kick against a reduction
of their pay. Temporary suspensions of
work then began to interrupt the con-
tinuance of their operations—‘the nail
market overstocked,” ‘poor demand for
muek-bar,” ete., being the reasons given
for the frequently occurring shut downs.
Things continued in this unsatisfactory
condition until just when Bill MeKin-
ley had begun to get a good hold on the
industries of the country the Sheriff
stepped in and closed the establishment.
It is nonsense to assign the failure of
these works to some special cause affect-
ing them. They weat under, as hun-
dreds of others have gone under, with
the highest of tariffs in full swing. All
the other industries in. Bellefonte, for ex-
ample, are in about the same strait. The
glass works, which for years were suc-
cessfully run, furnishing the employes
with good wages, hasn’t turned out a
pane of glass in the last twelve months.
——just about the length of time the Mc-
Kinley tariff has been stimulating the
industries. Those of its employes that
have not scattered to other places are
loafing about the streets of the town or
catching an oceasional trout or sucker in
the limpid waters of Spring Creek. Of
the two huge furnaces that were built
under the Cleveland administration and
made money for awhile, one of them has
been out of blast for uver a year, and the
other is being run experimentally by
parties who had the advantage of getting
it cheap from a company that collapsed
some time after the Harrison administra-
tion got into power.
So it appears that the blight which has
overtaken Governor Beaver’s works is
not exceptional or attributable to a
special cause. Other industries in the
same neighborhood, as elsewhere, are
affected in the same way, if not to quite
so disastrous an extent.”
