Gov. Hoyt's Message.
Tho concludlni portion of tho Gov

certain quarters becaso he alludes to
tho present political situation in terms

ublish it that our readers may judoo it
for themselves. Ho says !
In Pcnnsylvaula tho people havo do-
tcrmlnod upon n change What
docs this decision mean 1 To this
question Unco answers nro proposed :
ono cynical and desperate, nnother
pessimistic and hopeless, nnd a third
patnotio and reassuring.
Tho tirst expresses tno iceiing anu
wishes of tho professional politician.
To him tho chance is only a turn in
the fortunes ot a game, wnereuy no
has lost or won tho stakes for which
ho played tho spoils of plnco nnd
power. Accustomed to watch his luck
mid "hediro" as often ns ho can nnd
dare, ho is perplexed by ono of two
irobems onlv: now to reincvo ins
owes, or how to spend his winnings.
Tho prvnlenco of his view is not at all
surprising. This class of statesmen
despiso tho pooplo whom they would
cni'ole. and iclv for their success, oven
moro upon tno npainy oi mo pure ami
intelligent, than upon the activity of
tho selfish and unscrupulous.
.. e .1 .... .1
Tho second view regards tno recent,
overturn as a mere caprico ot mouiio
voters, n uublio snasm. a sentimental
convulsion. It is based, wittingly or
unwitttnclv. upon a latent distrust
of the people ; it imports n low view
of American manhood, and a secret,
but ill-disguised, disbelief m our capao
itv for sclf-covcriimcnt. If it be, in
deed, well grounded, then tliero is little
bono for the perpetuity of our institu
tions, nnd for that magnificent indus
trial and political development which
is tho staple ot our noble3t day
Rut tho third view is moro hopeful
and patriotic. According to it, this
change marks tho beginning of a now
cnocli in our political life. Thoso who
cherish it, nrguo that thousands ot our
best citizens, relieved of the pressuro
of national anxieties, nnd unwilling to
. . . . . .
livo forever in the past, nro beginning
to study tho nature nnd details o:
Stato nnd. municipal government as
never beforo ; aro awaking to tho busi
ness and scientific character of political
nroblems. and havo determined to
thrust aside every individual, and
every contrivance, that stands between
them and tho management of their
own affairs. Thev will no longer bo
content with automatic activity in
politics ; they demand n conscious
share in this noblest pursuit of intelli
gcut men. Tho people havo come to
claim their own without tho interven
tion of middlemen.
If this view bo correct, then tho oc
cupation of the professional politician
is gone. Ho belongs to a doomed
species ; he has outlived tho only envi
ronment nuapicu 10 ms iioiinaiiinem,
and must shortly pass away. That
this is true, is indicated by our lineage,
our traditions and tho character of our
recent progress. Wo aro tho descen
dants ot men who tictica kings and
parliaments ; wo are tho children of
men who destroyed tho congressional
caucus, ana creaiea too national con
vention. Our citizens are meeting in
their granges and trades unions, in
their industrial leagues and commer
cial guilds, and are becoming keenly
alive to evcry-day bearings of politics
upon meir own uuu meir cuuuruii o
welfare. Even tho primary meeting,
onco treated as utterly beyond the pale
of tho law, tho sport ot tho juggler
and tho rogue, Iras become the Bubject
of legislative enactment and protection.
Nay more, even the promises of party
platforms conform to tho quickened
senses of the people, and tho necessity
of other and better methods has re
ceived a certain gravo and reveren
tial recognition iu party deliveran
ances. But Romo was not built in a day,
nor can tho political habits of a half
century bo transformed by a singlo de
cree, even though registered at tho
ballot-box. If, therefore, condemned
political methods aro to become, per
manently disreputable, tho thought
ful citizens of this Commonwealth
must bo uver on thu alert, ready at
any moment to re-assert their strength,
and to claim tho fruits of their own
Politicians aro willing enough in the
day of tho people's power. But the
leaders of a new epoch must bo more
than mere reflectois of current thought
and feeling. They must bo sagacious
and intrepid, moro ready to servo the
people than themselves. Such leaders
can livo only in an atmosphere of intel
ligence and civio courogo. Tho peo
ple then must be prompt nnd generous
in the support of real merit ; but at the
same time they must make every pub
lic servant understand that ho is a ser
vant and not a master, and that each
and all, the highest and lowest, wheth
er paid tho by year or paid by tho day,
must render faithful and unremitting
The people must tolerate no spurious
economies, no counterfeit reforms, no
mere partisan strategies, no judicial
perversions, no legislative excesses, no
administration in the interest of per
sons or classes, or even iu tho exclusive
interest of parties. They must be
quick to discern, swift to censure what
is clearly wrong, and equally swift to
praise what is clearly right. They
must innko tho men in power feel that
tho eyes of thousands aro upon them,
and that tho day of judgment is al
ways going on. But abovo nil, they
mu-t never suffer tho conviction to
tako root that tho recent changes wero
only freaks of circumstances only
spasms of an unstable public mind
only the caprices of irritated and trail

Argument on the petition of citizens
of Pennsylvania asking that the attor
ney general file a bill inequity with tho
Bupremo court against tho Western Un
ion Telegraph Company, for an alleged
defianco and violation ot the constitu
tion and laws of tho state, was heard
before Attorney General Palmer last
week, Friday. Silas W. Pettit, of
Philadelphia, on behalf of the petition
ers, opened tho argument, llo said
that it was a well established law that
a corporation in ono state can only ex
ercise its franchises in nuother by suf
frage and invitation and not by any
constitutional provision. "I tako it
that tho attorney General of Pennsyl
