A HEPDBIilOAN OPINION Of QUAY'S
Another prominent Republican, de
sirous of avoiding corrupt politics, has
written a letter addressud to Republi
cans of Pennsylvania in which he bit
terly arraigns Senator M. 8. Quay,
and comes oat strongly In favor of ex
Governor Patlison as the Gubernator
ial candidate who "represents not only
tho people against the bosses, but the
people against the corporations."
Henry C. Lea, the well-known Rep
ublican, has come out for Pattison in
the following ringing letter:
To the Republicans or Pennsylva
nia: It is not often that any political
organization has such an opportunity
of redeeming itself from a corrupt do
mination as that which is offered to us
in the November election. Eight
years ago, in 1882, tho thoughtful
members of the Republican party roso
against the bossiam of the Cameron
clique and taught it a wholesome les
son which ihoaltl have served to pnii
fly our politics for a decade. Unfort
unately the fruits of that struggle were
thrown away by the supineness whioh
allowed Mr. Quay in 1831 to obtain a
"vindication" by successfully compet
ing for the office of State Treasurer in
spite of the rumors which connected his
name with misappropriation of the
publio funds. It wat then predicted
that his next step would be to secure
tho coming Senatorial vacancy and to
supplant Mr. Camoron as tho Repub
lican boss of Pennsylvania.
Theso predictions havo been, unfort
unately, verified, and the resulu are
seen jn tho degradation of our political
position, which renders our Stato an
object of pity and contempt through
out the Uuion. The boasistn of the
Camerons had in it some elements of
manliness; that of Air. Quay is sunk to
the lowest level of "practical politics,"
based as it is solely on tho adroit man
ipulation of patronage inspired by the
meanest selfishness. It represents not
one single idea of Republican states
manship and publio policy, but only
the determination to rule or ruin. The
selfish ambition of the boss and his
henchman is its sole guiding principle,
and its methods, as exhibited in Cam
bria county, aro those of the sneak
thief and foot-pad when tho distribu
tion of tho spoils fails to effect its ob
jects. As in 1884, Mr. Quay again comes
beforo you for a "vindication." Then
the accusations against him were sim
ply rumors, the truth of which lew had
an opportunity of investigating. Now
these rumors have assumed tho shape
of publio charges, strengthened by
every detail of time aud place and cir
cumstance, and to them have been
added accusations of subsequent mal
feasances committed by him, of even
criminality, similarly weighted with
more than abundant details. It is not
ncoJBsary to regert to you the humili
ating story of a publio life stained
with every variety of political immor
ality. That story has been scattered
broadcast over the land by journals of
the highest standing, whioh havo de
fiantly challenged him to assert and
defend his innocenoe by suing them
The Courts are open to him, and ex

before his countrymen would reward
him if he could successfully faoe a jury
and undergo a cross-examination, but
for more than five month he has en
dured these accusations in stolid sil
ence, without taking a step to redeom
his character. The inevitable result is
that ho Is regarded as acquiescing in
the charges and as virtuallyconfessing
bis guilt, and tho country at large is
looking to see whether the once proud
State of Pennsylvania has sunk to bo
low a pitch of degredation as content
edly to endure the domination of suoh
Mr. Q lay, who so carefully avoids
Courts and juries, has seemed to ima
gino that if tho Republicans of Penn
sylvania could be cozened into endors
ing at the polls his candidate it would
serve him as a political vindication.
With edifying consistency master aud
man are equally in need of vindication
for Candidate Delaraater has been le
cently publicly accused by Senator
Emery of bribery to procure his elec
tion to the Stato Senate and of per
jury to secure the seat thus gained.
His acouser has challenged him to a
suit for slaoder, and he has shrunk
from the Courts and juries like his
boss. He also prefers the apparently
safer course of an indirect vindication
at your hands, and asks you to humili
ate yourselves by electing to the
highest office in the Stato a smirched
candidate whoso nomination has been
forced upon you by a Btnirched boss.
It ia a high price that they expect you
to pay for tho vindication of two suoh
individuals, and the impudence of such
a demand upon your selfrespect can
only he explained by a kind of politi
cal training which his a-i completely
eliminated righteomnoss from publio
affairs that its veiy existence has been
Fellow Republicans, a vindication
truly is noedod at the coming election,
but it js uot the vindication of taintod
politicians who dare not vindicate
themselves. Yon are called upon to
vindicalo your own manhood; 10 vindi
cate the honor of your own State. You
are called upon to show that you do
not wear tho collar of Mr. Quay; that
your votes aro not to be bought and
sold by the manipulation of patronage,
and that you aro not to be driven to
the polls like cattlo to make good the
bargains of your bosses. You are
oalled upon to teach a lesson to your
self constituted masters, and to show
the country at largo that the grand old
party may still be trusted to manage
the affairs of the nation. If Pennsy
lvania, tho stronghold of Republican,
ism, the typical Republican State, tam
ely acquiesces in the debauched domin
ation of Quayism and proclaims that
Messrs. Quay and Delamater are its
trustod and honored leaders, what
chance, think you, will the Republican
party have when it aske tho support of
the sober sooond thought of tho
country in 1892! Rebellion against
usurped domination of suoh leaders
is tho truest fidelity to party and tho
bighrit duty of patriotism.
Fortunately, the canvass Is one
whioh can be made to turn exclusively
on local issues. On all general ques
tiors you oau give praotical expression
to your convictions by voting for the
Congressional and Legislative candi
dates who represent them, and you oan
thus emphasize the robuko which you
administer to the methods and morals
of Quayism. In ex-Govornor Patlison
the Democrats have given you an un
exceptionable candidate, whoso reoord
shows that the interests of the State
will bo safe in his hand. If in making
that reoord ho earned tho hostility of
tho giant corporations if the influence
of the Ponnsyivania Railroad and of
tho Standard Oil Company is under

amater it is only another claim on
your suffrages for Mr. Pattison. He

the bosses, but tho people against tho
corporations, and his defeat would bo

Reed Beady to Adjourn
Tho Hon. Thomas Bracket Reed
must be about ready to adjourn him
self. The work that he cut out for the
House has been mostly done, and un
less the silver men break away, it has
all been done to his satisfaction and
in accordance with his specifications.
Mr. Reed has had a very lively session
and he must begin to long for the
breezes of Portland Bay. Ills record
as a Houso of Representatives entitles
him to a vacation. He has changed
tho nouse rules so that the minority
have no rights. He has unseated
Democrats in quantities to suit. He
haa admltted two Republican Territor
ies into the Union. He has passed f
tariff bill which nobody in particular
seems to want, and which many of tho
men who were mado to vote for it
didn't want. He has scotched free
silver coinage, although the West, the
Sonth, and at least part of the East,
want free silver coinage. He has
driven through the Houso a bayonet
bill, which Southern Republicans do
not want and many Northern Republi
cans are afraid of.
This is a big record. What makes
it more remarkable is that Mr. Reed
has been ablo to hold together alt the
Republicans in the Rouse to policies
of whoso wisdom many of them are
known to be boubtful. He has mado
them do tho things they would not and
ho has kept them from doing the things
they would. In some instances, as in
tho case of the votes of some of the
Western members on tho Senate amend
ments to the sliver bill, he has actually
forced Representatives into voting
against their own interests and the
known wishes of their constituent.
There could be no stronger proof of bis
power. It is easy enough for the Con
gressmen to vote for a big job like the
dependent pension bill. He may not
approve the policy of it, but he thinks
that it will get him votes. When,
however, Congressmen can be forced
into voting for a measure which their
constituents do no approve, the com
manding quality of the master of the
House is shown in its highest form.
We have instanced as a proof the vote
of some of the Western Republicans
on the silver bill. The vote of the
Minnesota members on tho tariff bill
is another proof. The comparative
meekness with which members havo
consented to the shelving of bills for
public buildings in their districts is
another evidence. It is wonderful that
there has not been a mutiny. Mr.
Reed has been the absolute sovereign
of the Republicans. If the other Rep
ublican mcmhers had been mutes, mer
ely opproving in dumb show his edicts
their part in the work of tho House
would have been no less insignificant
than it has been New York Sun.
Protected Hew York.
Bend your ear, gentle reader, and
hear what the New York Tribune has
"Isolated cases of starvation and
misery can always be found in such
great cities as London and Paris, and
sometimes in New York, bit it seldom
happens that even under the worst con
ditions, hundreds of men, women and
children can be found actually dying
for want of nourishing food, while
thousands more are living on a mere
pittance, insufficient to satisfy the
cravings of hunger, but, in this, the
richest city in the western hemisphere
any reader of tho lribune can in a
few minutes' walk from Broadway find
and see just such people for himself.
It is on the East side, in the tenement
houses of Essex, Orohaid, Norfolk,
Suffolk, Ludlow and Sheriff streets, in
the homes of the striking cloakmakers
that misery, sickness, hunger and
want reign. In this quarter there
can be met on every block women not
yet 25 years old who are haggard and
gray, and out of whose eyes has long
departed all hope of a mitigation of
Zsunde! Does the leading protec
tion organ mean to toll us that such
misery exists beforo the very doors of
the custom house t Does it moan to
say that with the republican party in
absolute control of governmental af
fairs and with a tariff machine of its
own construction running at full speeii
"hundreds of men, women and chil
dren can be found actually dying for
want of nourishing food !" This is,
indeed, a dark picture to paint from
life, not in free trade England, but in
protected New York. Patriot
Business Against Turbulence.
The J'resa is one of the very few
party organs that promptly responded
to Chairman Baden's command, is
sued by order of Speaker Reed, direct
ing party dependents and expectants
to unite in the effoit to whip a hesi
tating Senate into obedience to party
orders by tho passage of tho Force
Kleuiion bill. It was only logical that
the desperato coercive policy to forco
the passage of revolutionary election
measure and its inevitable turbulence
in the South, aroused Northern busi
ness men, who are identified with
Southern business interests, to earnest
protest; and among the many thou
sands of these protestants in Philadel
phia is Hamilton Disstou. He de
clares that he considers it "dangerous
for the business interests of the coun
try to pass the Federal election bill
now under consideration in the Sen
ate." To this protest of Mr. Disslon
the J'ress answers as follows:
We are sorry to see that Mr. Hamil
ton Dicston, a Republican who has
dono good Bervioe for the party in the
past, is quoted as saying that he "con
siders it dangerous for the business
interests of the co intry to pass the
Federal election bill which is now un
der consideration in the Senate."
When these usiness interests" ociuo
to bo exauiined they prove to bo tho
investments which Mr. Disston and
others have mado in the "Now South."
Of course, the business interests to
whioh Mr. Disston refers are "tho in
vestments which Mr. Disston and
others have in the "New South," aud
he is criticised for declaring for busi
ness in to rests and agaitut turbulunco
In the South. Pray, what better rea
son could be given against tho pas
sage of a national law than that it
would bo "dangerous for the business
interests of the country7" Any meas
ure that disturbs leg! Imato business
suoh as is Mr. Disston's investments in
the South, must be prejudioal to the
interests of tho whole country; and
Mr. Disstou knows, from intimate per
sonal acquaintance with the South,
that its only practicial results
would be the enormous waste of pub
lio monoy to pay 200,000 unneeded
Federal ofllolalf. and the inauguration
of ttirbnlenco in overy section of tho
South. In this judgment Mr. Disston
simply agrees with thecariicn admoni
tions of such ablo aud respected Re
publican Congressman from the South
as Ewart of North Carolina aud Colo
man of Louisiana.
Mr. Disston is only ono of many
thousands of Phlladelpbians and Penn
sylvanians who havo largo investments
in the South. Fully 8100,000,000 of
Northern capital has been invested in
tho South duri.'g tho last five years,
and Philadelphia has more investors
than any other section of U13 country.
They want peaco in tho South; they
know that there would be peace thero
now and as free elections a we havo
in the North if Congress wonll simply
let the race issuo alone: nnd they aro
only discharging their duty at pstriota
by protesting against paralyzing busi
ness interests of tho South by revolu
tionary measures which oin breed only
turbulence. Business wants peace,
and business will have poace, no mat

on me to change. I told him I knew what
Hood's Barsaparllla was. I had taken It, was
attinad with It, and did not want any other.
When I began taking Hood's Barsaparllla
I was feeling real miserable, suffering
a great deal with dyspepsia, and so weak
that at times I could hardly stand. I looked,
and had for some time, like a person In con
sumption. Hood's Barsaparllla did me so
much good that I wonder at myself sometimes,
and my friends frequently speak of It." Man.
