STATE RIGHTS AND FEDERAL UNION.
BELLEFONTE, PA. NOV. 2, 1894.
Why Every Democrat Should Vote.
For a party that boasts that it is go-
ing to carry the State by a majority of
hundreds of thousands its arrange:
ment for the perpetration of stupend ous
frauds in Philadelphia has the appear-
ance of superfluous rascality. It might
bear the construction of being unnec-
essary corruption if it was not becom-
ing evident that the party managers
are not as sure of a colossal majority
as they pretend to be. The revival of
business is an embarrassment to their
campaign spell-biaders. It is a source
of uneasiness to the leaders. They
would be happier if there was more
business distress. They would be more
confident of their majority if the peo-
ple were less confident of better times.
Things have taken a turn that may
make the size of the majority depend
on the amount of fraud that may be
While there has been general pad-
ding ot the registry lists in Philadel
phia, it is found that the largest num-
ber of fraudulent names are on the as-
gessors lists in the Third Congressional
district, where the Republican purpose
is to defeat the candidate in the only
Democratic district in the city by an
avalanche of illegal votes. Every avail-
able tramp, bummer, repeater and
rounder is to be called into service for
the vindication of McKINLEYISM by
carrying that district it it can be doue
by such foul means. They will also
count in swelling the majority for the
Republican State ticket, which the
leaders are beginning to see is not go-
ing to come up to their claim.
Ot course much of the intended
fraud in Philadelphia will be discount-
ed by Democratic vigilance and deter-
mination in that city, but the most
effectual way to counteractit in the
general result is for every Democrat,
in every part of the State, to go to the
polls and cast his ballot.
There was naver a stronger reason
why Democrats should vote than there
The policy and principles of their
party are on trial and it is their duty
to sustain them by their suffrage.
Their own personal interest is an in-
centive for them to confirm by their
ballots the return of business prosperity
inaugurated by a Democratic tariff.
They owe it to their pride and digni-
ty to humble an insolent and overbear-
They are obligated to the support of
a courageous and unselfish candidate
for Governor who has made personal
sacrifices in leading them in this con-
test, and it is due from them also to
stand up like men for the other excel-
lent candidates on their State ticket.
Particularly are they called upon as
faithful Democrats to make every exer-
tion for their congressional candidates,
nor can they, if they are true to their
party, neglect their county tickets.
Let such a fierce determination to do
their full duty pervade the Democrats
of this State that every member of the
party, who is able to walk or ride, will
be at the polls and cast his vote next
With such a determination on the
part of Peunsylvania’s Democracy Re-
pablican fraud will be discounted.
A AERA ASTARSCTTS.
Hastings’ Silence Gives Consent.
When candidate Hastings arrived
in Philadelp hia last week, after his
protracted effort to spell bind the State
by his calamity tour, he found himself
confronted by the discovery of the
mest astounding frauds proposed to
be practiced in the coming election in
that city in the interest of his party.
Did he, like an honest man, a good
citizen and a true patriot, raiee his
voice in denunciation of this atrocious
conspiracy against an honest ballot?
Did he offer bis assistance in purging
the registry of the thousands of fraudu-
lent names that had been put on the
assessment lists, and in bringing to
justice the scoundrels who had perpe-
trated this crime ?
Not a bit of it! DaNIgL is silent in
regard to this colossal iniquity, His
silence evidently gives consent to his
reaping the advantage of such political
rascality. [tis not uatair to believe
that he is in conference with the ring-
gtars who are frying to prevent the
courts from ioterfering with the con-
summaticn of this fraud.

ernor in one of his ronnding-up speeches
near Philadelphia, the other day, said
that “he was glad that the contest is a
The contest for the election of the
Governor of a State can have no other
legitimate issues connected with it than
those of State administration. The peo-
ple want to know whether the State
laws will be properly and honestly
executed ; whether the State constitu-
tion will be enforced ; whether corpo-
rate influence and party rings will or
will not control executive action ;
whether the State administration will
use its influence for the equalization
of the tax burden and the prevention
of State funds from being used for pri-
vate benefit ; whether executive effort
will be made to secure fair and honest
methods of paying the wages of labor,
and such general matters as are con-
nected with the relation that exists be-
tween the Governor and the people of
These are the only issues that have
a right to be brought into a contest i for
Goveraor, but Hastings totally ignores
them, and placing himself upon the
tariff question, upon which, as Gov-
ernor, be would have neither the op-
portunity nor ability to exert the least
influence, and befogging the issue with
a frightful array of calamity bugaboos;
he declares that “he is glad that the
contest is a clear one.”
Dax’s idea of clearness in public
questions is not surprising in a states
man of his mental ealibre,

A Calamity Which Hastings Dodges.
The Philadelphia Ledger, in com-
menting upon the circular issued by
the Business Men's League of Denver,
showing how both public and individ
ual credit has been impaired in Color-
ado, and business paralysed in that
State by the monetary vagaries of the
Populists, says that such a result
“should convey a lesson to those who
have been toying and coquetting with
Populistic doctrines in their platforms,
in shuffling and evasive deliverances
upon the silver coinage issue, and in
arbitrarily fixing the per capita limit
of the circulating medium, and in oth-
er ways sapping and undermining the
foundations of public confidence.”
There is no difficulty in seeing to
what party’s platform the Ledger's re-
mark applies, but it should have been
more specific in saying that the ex.
travagant $40 per capita currency
plank in the Pennsylvania Republican
platform, if put into practical effect, is
calculated to produce all the evils of
an inflated currency which that con-
gervative paper deprecates.
This plank was inserted in the plat-
form either to catch the Populistic
vote by a deceptive promise, or with
the earnest intention of pledging the
Republicans to a reckless and perilous
monetary inflation. In either case it
is to be condemned.
What have the businessmen of
Pennsylvania, who are interested in a
solid and safe monetary system, to say
about it? The Razpublican candidate
for Governor, who has gone through
the State howling calamity, had noth-
ing to say against the calamity of a
depreciated carrency. He offers no
objections to putting the currzocy up-
on a wild cat basis.
~——The Democrats should remem-
ber that though stalwart Jor Hoy, of
Marion township, is the tail ender on
the ticket this fall he is in no wise the
tail-ender in point of merit. Ionest
and true he asks for votes along with
the rest of them and there is no doubt
about his gatting a handsome majority.
Have the Democrats Increased the
Price of Sugar?
If the Republicans accuse your party
of havin~ increased the price of sugar
show them these figures taken from U.
S. government statistics. The figures
are taken from the official records and
quote the price of sugar on the Ist of
September for the past four years as fol-
lows : :
1891—4 3-10 cents a pound.
1894 —5 cents.
On the 15th of the same month, each
year, the quotations were :
1892—5 3-16 cents.
1893 —5% cents.
The circular calls particular attention
to the fact that the new law went into
operation August 28, and that on Sep-
tember 15 sugar was 5 cents a pound,
whereas on October 1 the price had fal-
len to 4 11-16 cents a pound.
He Must Be a Lulu.
From the New Yor k Sun:
SPRINGFIELD, Ill, was remarkably
happy last week. Bounding Bill
Springer, the War Horse of the Sauga-
mon, pranced his prettiest and neighed
his loudest there, and he was followed
by the First Assistant Postmaster-Gen-
eral, the Hon. Frank Halcyon Jones.
Mr. Jones is still regretfully remember-
ed at New Haven as the possessor of one
of the sweetest tenor voices that ever
entranced the Glee Club. Birds. would
drop dead from the elms to his feet, and
all the pianos in the dormitories would
tune themselves. He has the voice now
only he applies it to nobler uses. His
speeches are as melodious as his songs,
and to hear him after Mr. Springer
must have been as refreshing as small
beer in the desert. There are few ora-
tors with mellower movements in their
throats that the Hon. Dandy Jones has.
From the Bituminous Record.
«Little Phil” attended the Republi-
can primary election in the First Ward

What his motive was can only be con-
jectured, but it looks as if he tried to
put himself in a position which would
enable him to say that he did not vote
against the man that would bz nomi-
nated for Judge. It was an attempt at
artful dodging which many of his party

was the Judgeship in this county.

The Boomerang Turned Back.
From the Harrisburg Patriot.
The dullness in the iron trade, in ac-
cordance with the ideas of Republican
calamity shouters, must be attribu-
table to the fear of Republican success
in this and other states and the conse-
quent attempts to reopen the high tar-
iff question in Congress. If the Re

deceived in its hopes of success the
iron business will reach the sold basis
already reached by other industries

Every Man's Duty.
From the Milton Record.
This is one of the years that Demo-
crats want to be Democrats. An honest
citizen who fails to turn out on election
day and register his convictions at the
ballot box, not only neglects an impor-
tant public duty, but he deliberately
aids the opposition. Turn out and give
at least one-half day to the interests of
the Democratic party, through which
the best permanent good may be se-
cured to the whole people.
