A Reason It Shonld be Ashamed to Give’
The Republican of last week gave as
a reason, why Mr. Ar. Dare should be
elected as a representative over Mr.
Jas. ScHOFIELD, that Mr. DaLE's fami-
ly, that is his ancestors for AL. DALE
never had enterprise enough about him
to get a family, have been residents of
this county for almost a century, while
Mr. ScrorieLp had the misfortune, in
its estimation, to be born in Ireland.
We doubt if there is an other fool in
the county, outside of the Republican
office, who will consider that Mr. DALE
is to be credited in any way with his
great-grandfather’'s coming to this
country almost a hundred years ago,
or will charge Mr. ScaorieLp with be-
ing responsible for first seeing the light
in a little cabin in Ireland. While it
is possible that Mr. DALE'S great-gran
daddy, after becoming a citizen and liv-
ing in this country for twenty-five years,
as Mr, ScuorIELD has done, would have
made fully as good a Representative
as his great-grandson,who, having done
nothing for himself or any one else,
now falls back on the record of his an-
cestors as a recommendation, it is also
true that if the original DALE had been
of no more account to the country ot
the community than Mr. Ar DaLE has
been there would be no DALE'S to ask
for votes or nothing that the DaLE fam-
ily had ever done to refer to.
The Republican should remember
that it is not great-grand-daddy Dare
or the DALE family that is running for
the legislature. It is Mr. AL DaLe.
Let that paper tell us whatue has done
that any Democrat or tax-payer should
vote for him. Let itenlighten the pub:
lic as to how he will vote, if elected on
the questions of United States Senator,
the repeal of the law that prevents cat-
tle being pastured on our mountains,
and other matters in which our people
have an interest.
Mr. ScuorieLp it is true was born
in Ireland. He came to this country
when a boy. He has been a resident
of Bellefonte and a citizer of the State
for over twenty-five years, is a member
of the Presbyterian church,and by hon.
est industry and perseverance he has
worked his way up autil he is now one
of the foremost and most respected bus-
iness men of Bellefonte. His sympa.
thies and support have always been
with the workingmen and farmers, and
when elected they will find him, as a
Representative, watchful of their inter-
ests and oppose to any legislation that
would beldetrimental to their good. He
is not afraid to say where he stands on
questions of importance to the people
of the county. He is for the defeat of
Quay for United States Senate; for
the repeal of the law doing away
with fences, and in fayor of any other
measures that are for the best interests
of the people of the county.
Will the Republican tell us what Mr.
Dare will do on either of these ques-
tions. Let us know more about AL
and less about his great-grand-daddy.
The former is a living the latter a dead
——-The reader, who has had the
pleasure of perusing Col. McCLURE's
great speech on the tariff, on Monday
night last, can readily understand why
Gov. McKINLEY refused to meet him
on the stump on this question. He
knew McCrure and he felt that there
would not be a ‘grease spot’ of his
protective dogmas left after the Phila-
delphia editor was through with them.
He preferred not to be at the funeral.
Sensible McKinxLey. What a political
drubbing your forethought and fear
saved you from !
——The “infant industry” that
seems to be crying loudest just now for
its share of protectiolr is the Statistic
Manufacturing and Record Destroying
Company, lately organized by the Re:
publicans to do business in New York.
Unless all signs fail, or some kind of
“protection” that can-save them from
the penalties of a violated law can be
furnished, the enterprising investors in
this new business, all stand a fair show
of serving the State for some time 1n

——1Its a good sign to see your ene
mies get mad. It isevidentthat things
are not going well with them. Just
now the; Republican press of the coun.
ty is exibiting about the same spirit

find anything to peck at and turns up-
on herself and demolishes her own tail
feathers. This condition is always
rough on the hen, but we never heard
that it hurt anybody else.
—— Among the recent desertions
from thellRepublican ranks is T. V.
PowbperLY who,only last year,occupied
a prominent place ou the state ticket
of that party. He is out for WEAVER,
the People’s candidate,and although he
don’t pretend to think that the move-
ment will amount to much here, he has
great faith in the showing up the new
party will make in the Republican states
of the north-west.

early in the week. On Thursday last
he suffered a stroke of paralysis that
alarmed his friends, who immediately

as was anticipated, and the recovery
was rapid. The Justice was affected
on the left side.
At 9 o'clock to-night he was resting
easily, and a recurrence of the attack
is not feared at this time. Itis de-
clared that Thursday's illness was the
result of fatigue.

Great Damage by Lightning, Wind, Rain and

Southern Pensylvania, Delaware and

accompanied the tempest and the ther-

Cleveland's Letter of Acceptance. A Dignified
and Forcible Statement of Democratic Doc
trines. Unjust Taxation Upon the People in
the Tariff Effort to Benefit Certain Classes
The Force Bill Iniquity. No Favoritism in
On Monday Ex-President Cleveland
issued his letter of acceptance of the
Democratic’ nomination for President.
It is addressed to William L. Wilson,
chairman of the Notification committee,
and is as follows -
GENTLEMEN : In responding to your
formal notification of my nomination to
the Presidency by the national Demo-
cracy. I hope I may be permitted to
say at the outset that continued reflec-
tion and observation have confirmed
me in my adherence to the opinions,
which IT have heretofore plainly and
publicly declared, touching the questions
involved in the canvass. :
This is a time above all others, when
these questions should be considered in
the light afforded by a sober apprehen-
sion of the principals upon which our
government is based and a clear under- |
standing of the relation it bears to the
people for whose benefit it was created.
‘We shall thus be supplied with a test
by which the value of any proposition
relating to the maintenance and admin-
istration of our government can be as-
certained and by which the justice and
honesty of every political question can
be judged. If doctrines or theories are
presented which do not satisfy this test
loyal Americanism must pronounce
them false and mischievous.
The protection of the people in the
exclusive use and enjoyment of their
property and earnings, concededly con-
stitutes the especial purpose and mission
of our free government. This design is
so interwoven with the structure of our
plan of rule that failure to protect the
citizen in such use or enjoyment, or
their unjustifiable diminution by the
government itself, is a betrayal of the
people’s trust,
‘We have, however, undertaken to
build a great nation upon a plan es-
pecially our own. To maintain it and
to furnish through its agency the means
for the accomplishment of national ob-
jects, the American people are willing
through Federal taxation, to surrender
a part of their earnings and income.
Tariff legislation presents a familiar
form of Federal taxation. Such legisla-
tion results as surely in a tax] upon the
daily life of our people as the tribute
paid directly into the hand of the tax
gatherer. We feel the burden of these
tariff taxes too palpably to be persuaded
bytany sophistry that they do not exist,
or are paid by foreigners.
Such taxes, representing a diminution
of the property rights of the people, are
only justifiable when laid and collected
for the purpose of maintaining our goy-
ernment and furnishing the means for
the accomplishment of its legitimate
purposes and functions. This is taxa-
tion under the operation of a tariff for
revenue. It accords with the profes-
sions of American free institutions, and
its justice and honesty answer the test
supplied by a correct appreciation of the
principles upon which these institutions
This theory of tariff legislation mani-
festly enjoins strict economy in public
expenditures and their limitation to
legitimate publie uses, inasmuch as it
exhibits as absolute extortion any exac-
tion, by way of taxation, from the sub-
stance of the people, beyond the necessi-
ties of a careful and proper administra-
tration of government.
Opposed to this theory the dogma is
now boldly presented, that tariff taxa-
tion is justifiable for the express purpose
and 1ntent of thereby promoting espe-
cial interests and enterprises. Such a
proposition is so clearly contrary to the
spirit of our Constitution and so directly
encourages the disturbance by selfish-
ness and greed of patriotic sentiment
that its statement wouid rudely shock
our people if they had not already been
insidiously allured from the safe land-
marks of principle.
Never have honest desire for national
growth, patriotic devotion to country
and sincere regard for those who toil,
been so betrayed to the support of a
pernicious doctrine. In its behalf the
plea that our infant industries should be
fostered did service until discredited by
our stalwart growth ; then followed the
exigencies of a terrible war, which made
our people beedless of the opportunities
for ulterior schemes afforded by their
willing and patriotic payment of unpre-
cedented tribute ; and now, after a long
period of peace, when our over-burden-
ed countrymen ask for relief and a res-
toration to a fuller enjoyment of their
incomes and earnings, they are met by
the claim that tariff taxation for the
sake of protection is an American sys-
tem, the continuance of which is neces-
gary in order that high wages may be
paid to our workingmen and a home
market be provided for our farm pro-
These pretenses should no longer de-
ceive. The truth is that such a system
is directly antagonized by every senti-
ment of justice and fairness of which
Americans are pre-eminently proud.
It is also true that while our working-
men and farmers can, the least of all our
people, defend themselves against the
arder home life which such tariff taxa-
tion decrees, the workingman, suffering
from the importation and employment
of pauper labor instigated by his profess-
ed friends, and seeking security for his
interests in organized co-operation, still
waits for a division of the advantages se-
cured to his employer under cover of a
generous solicitude for his wages, while
the farmer is learning that the prices of
his products are fixed in foreign markets,
where he suffers from a competition in-
vited and built up by the system he is
asked to support.
The struggle for unearned advantage
at the doors of the government tramples
on the rights of those who patiently rely
upon assurrances of American equality.
Every governmental concession to clam-
orous favorites invites corruption in po-
litical affairs by encouraging the expen-
diture of money to debauch suffrage in
support of a policy directly favorable to
private and selfish gain. This in the
end must strangle patriotism and weak-
an popular confidence in the rectitude
of Repablican institutions,
Though the subject of tariff legislation
involves a question of markets, it also
involves a question of morals. We can-
not with impunity petmit injustice to
taint the spirit of right and equity which
is the life of our republic; and we shall
fail to reach our national destiny if
greed and selfishness lead the way. -
Recognizing these truths, the nation-
al Democracy will seek, by the applica-
tion of just and sound principles, to
equalize to our people the blessings due
them from the government they support
to promote among our countrymen a
closer commanity of interests cemented
by patriotism and national pride,and to
point out a fair field, where prosperous
anil diversilied American enterprise may
grow and thrive in the wholesome at-
mosphere of American industry, inge-
nuity and intelligence.
Tariff reform is still our purpose.
Though we oppose the theory that tariff
laws may be passed having for their ob-
ject the granting of discriminating and
unfair governmental aid to private ven-
‘ tures, we wage no exterminating war
. against any American interests. We
{ believe a readjustment can be accom-
i plished in accordance with the princi-
| ples we profess, without disaster or de-
| molition. ‘We believe that the advan-
tages of freer raw materials should be
accorded to our manufacturers, and we
contemplate a fair and careful distribu-
tion of necessary tariff burdens, rather
than the precipitation of free trade.
‘We anticipate with calmness the mis-
representation of our motives and pur-
poses, instigated by a selfishness which
seeks to hold in unrelenting grasp its
unfair advantage under present tariff
laws. We will rely upon the intelli-
gence of our fellow country-men to re-
ject the charge that a party, comprising
a!majority of our people, in planning
destruction or injury of American inter-
ests, and we know they cannot be fright-
ened bv the specific of impossible free
The administration and management
of our government depend upon popu-
lar will. Federal power is the instrument
of that will, not its master. Therefore,
the attempt of the opponents of Demo-
cracy to interfere with and control the
suffrage of the States through general
agencies develop a design, which no
explanation can mitigate, to reverse the
fundamental and safe relations between
the people and their government. Such
an attempt cannot fail to be regarded by
thoughtful men as proof of a bold deter-
mination to secure the ascendancy of a
discredited party in reckless disregard of
a free expression of the popular will. To
resist such a scheme is an impulse of De-
mocracy. At all times and in all places
we trust the people. As against a dis-
position to force the way to Federal
power we present to them as our claim
to their confidence and support a steady
championship of their rights.
The people are entitled to sound and
honest money, abundantly sufficient in
volume to supply their business needs.
But whatever may be the form of the
peopie’s currency, national or State,
whether gold,silver or paper,it should be
so regulated and guarded by govern-
mental! action, or by wise and careful
laws, that no one can be deluded as to
the certainty and stability of its value.
Every dollar put into the hands of the
people should be of the same intrinsic
value or purchasing power. With this
condition absolutely guaranteed both
gold and silver can be safely utilized
upon equal terms in the adjustment of
our currency.
In dealing with this subject no selfish
scheme should be allowed to intervene
and no doubtful experiment should be
attempted. The wants of our people,
arising from the deficiency or imperfect
distributions of money circulation,
ought to be fully and honestly recogniz-
ed and efficiently remedied. It should,
however, be constantly remembered that
the inconvenience or loss that might
arise from such a situation can be much
easier borne’ than the universal dis-
tress which must follow a discredited
Public officials are the agents of the
people. It is, therefore, their dugy to
secure for those whom they represent
the best and most efficient performance
of public work. This plainly can be best
accomplished by regarding ascertained
fitness in the selection of government
employes. These considerations alone
are sufficient justification for an honest
adherence to the letter and spirit of civil
service reform, There are, however,
other features of this plan which abun-
dantly commend it. Through its opera-
tion worth merit in every station and
condition of American life is recognized
in the distribution of public employment,
while its application tends to raise the
standard of political activity from spoils
hunting and unthinking party affiliation
to the advocacy of party principles by
reason and argument.
The American people are generous
and grateful, and they have impressed
these characteristics upon their govern-
ment. Therefore, all patriotic and just
citizens must commend liberal consid-
eration for our worthy veteran soldiers
and for the families of those who have
died. No complaint should be made of
the amount of public money paid to
those actually disabled or made depen-
dert by reason of army service.
But our pension roll should be arol
of honor, uncontaminated by ill-desert
anc anvitiated by demagogic use. This
is due to those whose worthy names
adorn the roll, and to all our people
who delight to honor the brave and the
true. Itis also due to tbose who in
years to come should be allowed to bear,
reverently and lovingly, the story of
American platform and fortitude, illus-
trated by pension roll. The preferen-
ces accorded to veteran soldiers in p be
lic employment should be secureduto
them honestly and without evasion, and
when capable and worthy their claim to
the helpful regard and gratitude of
their countrymen culd be ungrudg-
ingly acknowledged.
The assurances to the people of the
utmost individual liberty, consistent with
peace and good order, is a cardinal
principle of our government. This
gives nosanction to vexatious sump-
tuary laws which unnecessarilly inter-
fere with such habits and customs of our
people as are not offensive to a just mor-
al sense and are not inconsistent with
good citizenship and the public wel-
| ed her record of 2:07 to 2:04. She
fare. The sume principle requires that |
the line between the subjects which are |
properly within governmental control
and those which are more fittingly left
to parential regulation should be care-
fully kept in view. An enforced educa-
tion, wisely deemed a proper prepara-
tion for citizenship, should not involve
the impairment of wholesome parental
authority nor do violence to the house-
hold conscience. Paternalism in gov-
ernment finds no approval in the creed
of Demoracy. Itisasympton of mis-
rule, whether it is manifested in unau-
thorized gifts or by an unwarranted con-
trol of personal and family affairs-
Our people. still cherishing the feel-
ings of 1ellowship which belonged to cur
beginning as # nation, require their
government to express for them their
sympathy with all those who are op-
pressed under any rule less beneficent
than ours,
A generous hospitality, which is one
of the most prominent of our national
characteristics prompts us to welcome
the worthy and industrious of all lands
to homes and citizenship among us.
This hospitable sentiment is not violated
however, by careful and reasonable regu-
lations for the protection of the public
health, nor does it justify the reception
of immigrants who have no apprecia-
tion of our institutions and whose pre-
sence among us isa menace to peace
and good order.
The importance of the construction of
the Nicaragua Ship Canal as a means of
promoting commerce between our
States and with foreign countries, and
also as a contribution by Americans to
the enterprises which advance the enter-
ests of the world of civilization, should
commend the project to government
approval and indorsement.
Our countrymen not only expect from
those who represent them in public
places a sedulous care for the things
which are directly and palpably related
to their material interests, but they also
fully appreciate the value of cultivating
our national pride and maintaining our
national honor. * Both their material
interests and their natonal pride and
honor are involved in the success of the
Columbia Exposition, and they will
not be inclined to condone any neglect
of effort on the part of their government
to insure in the grandeur of this event a
fitting exhibit of American growth and
greatness and a splendid demonstration
of American patriotism.
In an incomplete manner 1 have thus
endeavored to state some of the things
which accord with the creed and inten-
tions of the party to which I have given
my life-long allegiance. My attempt
has not been to instruct my countrymen
nor my party, but to remind both that
Democratic doctrine lies near the prin-
ciples of our government and tends to
promote the people’s good. I am will-
ing to be accused of addressing my
countrymen upon trite topics and in
homely fashion, for I believe that impor-
tant truths are found on the surface of
thought, and that they should be stated
in direct and simple terms. Though,
much is left unwritten, my record as a
public servant leaves no excuse for mis-
understanding my belief and position
on the questions which are now presen-
ted to the voters of the land for their de-
Called for the third time to represent
the party of my choice in a contest for
the supremacy of Democratic principles,
my grateful appreciation of its confi-
dence less than ever effaces the solemn
sense of my responsibility.
If the action of the convention you
represent shall be indorsed by the suf-
frage of my countrymen, I will assume
the duties of the great office to which I
have been nominated, knowing full its
labors and perplexities, and with hum-
ble reliance upon the Divine Being, in-
finite in power to aid and constant in a
watchful care over our favored nation:
Yours very truly.

jandmaster Gilmore Dead.
The Great Musician Died at St. Louis on Sat-
St. Louis, Sept. 24.—Colonel Patrick
Sarsfield Gilmore, the world-renowned
proprietor, manager and leader of the
band bearing his name, died at the
Lindell house at 6:45 this evening of
heart disease, superinduced by indiges-
tion. Colonel Gilmore had been for
several days feeling unwell, and con-
sulted a local doctor by whom he was
treated for indigestion.
Mr, Gilmore was born near Dublin,
on Christmas Day, 1829. When 18
years old Gilmore came to this conn-
try. In 1858 he organized in Boston
what has since been kuown as Gil-
more’s band, the one with which he
has given concerts all over this coun-
try and over half of Kurope. The
Charleston Democratic convention, of
1860, hired Gilmore to furnish its mus-
1. Gilmore and his band were with
Burnside in the Carolinas in the first
two years of the war and in 1864 he
went with it to New Orleans, where on
the inauguration of Halin as governor,
10,000 school children who had been
nursed on “Dixie” sang the “Star
Spangled Banner” to the band’s ac
Atter the war Gilmore returned to
Boston and there in 1871 he held the
great Peace Jubilee which make his
name famous among the bandmasters
of the world. With his jubilee honors
thick upon him, Mr. Gilmore went to
New York and formed his famous mili-
tary baud, now known as Gilmore’s
Twenty-second Regiment band. He
furnished music for the Centennial ex-
position at Philadelpbia. With this
band he visited in 1878 the various
capitals of Europe, taking prizes at
band concerts in several of them. Of
late years Mr. Gilmore was identified
with summer concerts at Manhattan
