" I was troubled with catarrh for over

ADDRESS OF THE BTATE COMMITTEE
TO PENNSYLVANIA REPUBLICANS.
THE 1'F.Ol'LK StUST HULK.
Tlio following addroag wna Bont out
by tho Stato Committco of Republi
can IndepondontH, lit Thursday.
To the Jiepublicans of Pennsylvania:
Wo address you, fcllow-citizotiB, m
Republicans, representing all sections
of this Ooinmonwoalth, proud of tho
history and achievements of tho great
party to whioh wo belong and anxious
that in the future, as in tho past, it
shall promoto and obtain that highest
form of free government of tho poople,
by tho people and for tho people."
Aa Republicans wo indorse tho great
principles embodied in tho platforms
and vindicated by tho history of tho
party of Lincoln, Sumner, Stoyon,
Gatfield and other illustrious loaders,
both living and dead. Tho Republi
can party has still a mission to fullfill
in tho maintenance of tho protective
system and in the guaranty of a free
and secret ballot in tho hands of every
citizen. We remember that tho re
publican party hprnng from tho man
hood and tho conscionce of the people
and wo believe that its high and hon
orable purposes cannot, be sustained or
its mission fulfilled oxcept by the pre
servation of tho same high standard ot
duty and honor whioh signalized its
Never in the history of tho Stato
was it more necessary than how to
seek to enforce tho prerogative of a
freo people to have a controlling voice
in tho nomination of thoso who nny
administer tho government of tho Com
monwealth. And if, in tho ccaking of
nomination, a convention fails to
csister the choice of tho majority and
simply oirries out the dictates of an
autocratio boss, wo believo that such a
nomination justifies every Republican
in rebuking it at the polls.
Upon what ground does Mr. Dola-
mater seek your support for the great
and responsible oflico of Governor of
tho Commonwealth! Is it tho spon
taneous voice of the people that calls
him, or tho methods of tho ward poli
lician that obtains for him reconition
aa a candidate!
Mr. Delamater has long been a self-
seeking-machine politician, who gain
ed the favor of the boas of tho Repub
lican party by his skilful use of tho
methods of his political master.
As otate benator his record snows
him to have been an advocato of cor
norzto interests, to tho nreiudioo of
stato interests of tho people His aflila
tiou with the Standard Oil Company
is well known. Hu is charged with
defeating the tax bill for the reliet of
tho farmers, tho Billingsley bill for tho
relief ol the oil men, and witn hostility
to labor legislation instances out of
many others to indicate the tenor of
While in tho Henato he obtained
large sums of Stato money on deposit
in Ins bank, thereby using his political
power fo personal profit, and commit
ting an offento prohibited by tho Con
stitution, one of tho penalties of which
is disqualiucatiou lor tho otlico bo now
But tho circumstances attending
Mr. Delamater s nomination have forc
ed into prominence a far graver issue
than that ot lus personal htnees.
Not only wa tho freo choice of the
party thwarted by his nominati"ii, but
subservient convention inserted in
tho party platform (which Mr. Dela
mater has unqualifiedly indorsed) the
lfor tho chairman of our national
committee, M. ts. Quay, wo feel a
lasting senso of gratitudo for his
matchless servicis in tho last Presi
dential campaign. As a citizen, a
membor of tho General Assembly, as
Secretary ol tno t-ommonwealth under
two successive administrations, as
Stato Treasurer by tho overwhelming
sutterage ot ins teliow-citizens, aud as
benator ot tho United states, ho has
won and retains our resptct and con
No nntrammled convention would
have dared to make such au indorse
Tho record of Mr. Quay is, or should
be, known to every citizen. In 1879
tho leading newspapers of tho Repub
lican party cut him from their ranks
tor ins proetituiion ot tho l'ardon
Board in connection with tho riot bill
briberies. His conduct as tho moving
tpint and direct beneficiary of tho
odious Recorder's bill has not been
forgotton by tho oitizons of Phitadel
liliia. Rfgponsiblo accusers bavo 10
peatedly and specifically charged him
with malleasanco in othce, evon with
embezzlement of large sums of tho
public moneys. Theso charges ho has
seen ht neither to explain nor deny,
even alter they have gained currency
on tho lloor ot tno lowor houso ot (Jon
Under thoso circumstances is is
reasonable to insist that Mr.Delamator's
success will bo Mr. Quay's vindica
Mr. Quay, who already dispenses
tho federal patronage ot tho Mate,
purposes to control, as well, tho exo
cutivo and Logislativo branches of tho
government of tho Uornmonwoaltli,
To sccuro this end ho had iorcod tho
nomination of Mr. Delamater for tho
high oflico of Governor of Penusylva
nia, in tho face of tho indignant pro
tests ot thousands ot tho best Kepuu
hcans of tho State, and now asks tho
nartv to ratinv his choice. Ho also
proposes tho election, as the leader of
tliu btato senate, ot Uliairman Y. II
Androws, who used without scruple
tuo machinery 01 tuo uepuuiican Stato
committco to force the nomination of
Mr. Delamator. Ho is likowiso en
deavoring to secure tho election of his
Eon as his representative in tho Asscm
.bly, and, if successful, will hold within
bis grasp both tho oxecutivo and logis
lativo powers of tho Stato. In addi
tion, ho will striyo to control aud dom
mate tho Pardon Board and thus
havo it in his power to thwart and
nullify tho very processos of justice, a
dangerous power which ho has already
suown uimeoit only too willing to ex
But tho consequenocs of tho election
of Mr. Delamater aro not bounded by
tho absoluto control of all tho brandies
of too government of tho Stato of
Pennsylvania, which would thus bo
placed in tho hands of Mr. Quay. Tho
success of Mr, Quay in this oontcst
will cotiHituto him tho indorsed and
ohosnn loader of tho Republican party
both In tlio Stato and nation, and if tho
party must cuter Into tho Prosdo itlal
contest of 1892 handicapped by tho
leadership tho party would bo hope
lessly dotoatod boforo tho canvass be
gan. To Bavo tho party from defeat
in that contest it is absolutoly noooa
sary that ho bo dothroned now. It
is there foro tho highest duty of Ro
publicanj to thoir own party to rafuso
to voto for and sustain his oandtdato
at this timo.
To accomplish tho end proposed all
earnest Republicans should at this fit
ting timo striko their most effoctivo
blow by voting as" Republicans for Ex
Governor Robort K, Pattison. To tay
at homo or cast a bollot for a IiopoIosr
third oandidato would bo an ovasion of
duty and a waste of power.
VI Mr. I'attison s htness for tho of-
fico wo leave Republicans alono to
On his retirement from oflico in
1887 tho most partisan Republican
newspapers which aro now opposing
him wore unanimous in their indorse
ments of his administration.
Ye quoto from tho Philadelphia
'rcss of January 17, 1887:
"it has boon, all m all, an administra
tion against whioh nothing oan bo said.
The integrity of Governor Paulson's
purpose and the excellence of his in
tentions will not.bo quesi toned.''
ihe 1 liiladelphia Jsloenmq Tele
graph of January 18, 1887, called his
administration "ono of tho most nota
bly honorablo and useful administra-'
tions that this Stato over oujoyed.''
The North American said: "If his
administration has not been brilliant it
has been bettor it has been safe."
Tho Inquirer of tho samo dato said:
The retiring administration retires
with a most admirable record. It coes
out with clean hands, with good fame
ano common respect, and nothing bat
tho narrowest partisan projudico and
bigotry would deny it the credit of its
fntecrity and usefulness."
lo these Republican testimonials of
is fitness for the office wo add nothinc
for nothing is rtquired.
There is but ono issuo in this otm-
paign, Purity of tho ballot, fair elec
tions, honest and courageous mm
iu office, clean administration of public
altairs aro and always will bo supremo
questions in a republic. If tho Repub
licans ot i' cnnsylvania havo reached
that dogreo of subserviency that they
will solemnly oast the vote or approval
of a loader whoso hands aro stained
with corruption, then tho days of the
Republican party aro numbered.
1 ho election ol llouert li. I'attison
cannot bo construed as a partisan
victory. His election in 1882 by a
plurality of 40,090 was followed, in
1881, by a Kepublioau moionty of 80,-
000 for James G. Blaine. Tho main
tenance of tho system of protection
cannot honestly bo brought into this
contest. No true friend of protection
will dtsiro to attach it to tbo fortunes
of Mr. Quay, Tho defeat of Matthew
S. Quay and his candidate will depend
upon intelligent Republicans. It will
rid tho Republican party of its most
selfish and corrupt leadership, restoro
you your citizenship and vindicato

"Yes. centlomen. I carried a pint
bottle of whlskoy in my pocket for
fiftcon years and never drank a drop
of it,'' said Milo Boaworth, a welt
known citizen of tho south side, who is
85 years old, in Justice Peck's oflico
yesterday afternoon. "Whon I was a
young follow I drank pretty hard, in
fact, I was drunk about all tho time,
but whon I got married I thought it
was timo to call a hall. 1 went down
to Chagrin Falls on a littlo business,
and before I camo homo I stopped at
Beard's grocery, as was ray custom,
and had my flask filled. I had mado
up my mind that that would bo tho
last liquor I would drink for fiftoen
oars, but whon 1 got into my wagon
fell lo thinking about tho matter and
camo to tho conclusion that thero was
no timo liko tho present, and I last put
that bottlo in my hip pooket, and thero
I carried if for fifteen long years, and
uring that timo 1 never touched a
rop of liquor of any kind.
"Well, about twelve years after that.
Gough, tho great temperanco orator,
was advertised to speak in Cleveland.
Tho posters informed ua that tho moot
ing would be held in tho Presbyterian
church. You young follows probably
never heard of that church. It was a
large, wooden structure, and stood on
tho sito of tho Old Stono Churoh. Of
courso wo attended tho raoeting, whioh
ocourrod on the Sabbath, and f kinder
took a notion to Gough, and asked
hiin to go homo and dine with ue. He
accepted, and after dinner I took out
(ho bottlo I had carried for twelve
years and asked him if ho would tako
drink. I lust said it in fun, but
groat guns, you ought to havo seen
that man. Ho turned hrst red then
white, and finally gasped out tho
" 'Put it up. I can't stand it. Put
up, I sav. before I discraco myself.'
I was frightened and put tho flask in
my pocket in a hurry. Ho didn't say
anything lor several minutes, but sat
wi h bis head between his hands. Fi
nally ho looked up and said:
" 'My friend, I am truly sorry that I
should display my weakness in yoor
house, but sometimes I havo an uncon
trollable desire for liquor, and when I
saw your flask I would havo given my
lifo for a drink. But,' he continued, 'I
understood you to say that you had
carried that bottlo and not drank any
thing for twelve years'?'
" 'That is truo,' I said, and then pro
ceeded to tell him of tho circumstances
of my swearing off. When ho had
heard 1110 through he said, 'You aro
just the man I am looking for, and I
want yon to go to Kngland with me.
Of course I was taken by surprise, and
asked him to explain. Ho Baid that ho
ad long wanted a reformed drunkard
to travel with him and lecturo, and
that a man with my will was just tho
chap ho desired. Well, I talked tho
matter over with my wife, and sho
said that she guessed sho could Bparo
rao tor a year or so, and tho upshot ot
tho thing was that Gough and I
formed a partnership whereby I was to
receive a handsome porcentago of tho
receipts, and wo started out.
"Albany was tho first place whero
wo wero billed to lecture, aud 1 toll
you there was a crowd thero to hear
us. Goucli had advertised tho re
formed drunkard feature tor all it was
worth, and I was regarded with as
much curiosity as tho dimo museum

when to exercise, when to rest ; and,
abovo all, ho must havo caution until

this not because thero is more danger
thoro than elsewhere, but precisely bo
cause there is less danger there than
elsewhere. It is here, ot all places
that Nature gives her maximum of bo
curity, her minimum of risk to her
worthy ioycrs, and in this senso ot
safety with her at all hours lies tho
wholo truth about tlio danger. Ono
forgets that danger can exist, and,
persuaded, goes too far and too fast iu

HE SAW ONLY "MOTHEE."
DY1NO, HE WENT HACK TO HER WHOSE
TENDERNESS HAD NEVER FAILED.
Tho doctor said it was no unusual
thing in deloiinm, but it seemed
strango and pathctia to tho loving
watchers that tho middle-aged, care
worn man, tossing wearily on a sick
bod, should fanoy himself acain a
child at his mother's kneo. Tho green
gravo far away in a country village,
where sho slept had no oxistenco so far
as ho was concerned. Sho had nover
died, but was with her boy again. Tho
many trials of lifo had passed from
his momory now. and boyish woes and
confidences alono wore on his lips.
When his weepino: wito laid her
and on his fevered brow ho looked up
and smiled and called her "mother.''
Tho hand that held tho medicino to
his lips, that smoothed the pillow, was
motnor, ' and in all tho taccs that

Ho had forgotten her so many voars.
Ho had been busy all theso years, and

littlo now, clear and sweet to his
parched soul camo tho memory of an
innocent childhood and a mothor's

weary, troubled creature, sick and
faiat over earth's fevered draught, and
110 went back liko a child, to her
whoso tendcrnoss had never failed him.
"Your littlo boy is tired, mother.
Tho sun is hot."
His children broke into sobs as ho
spoko, but his fatherhood was a thing
unknown to mm now.

Ex -Governor Ourtin's War Story.
Governor Curtin tells tho followintr:
Riding over tho field just after tho
baltlo of Spottsylvania, I camo across
a wounded Pennsylvania soldier. Ho
was leaning agaiust a stump, holding
a bloody leg. I dismounted and ask
ed him how ho was.
"Is tho bono broken!" I inquired.
as ho oxplained his injury.
iNo, said he, ebeerlully, "only a
bullet through tho flesh." Still, ho
was faint ait J thirsty.
"What would you rather havo juBt
now, my mniil" said I, "if yon had but
0110 wish!" I was thinking of his
homo iu the Pennsylvania hills,
"I would like to havo a good drink
of Pennsylvania whUky," ho replied,
with a smile,
"Thon hero it is," I replied, extend
ing myftla&k, "you t-hall have it."
He took tho flask, hold it in his
hands a Hoond, then pointed nt a dy
ing Confederate soldier near by.
"Better givo it to him," he said, "ho
imcds it moro than I do, poor fellow.
Yes, givo it to him."
Wo turned to tho latter. For all
we knew, it might havo been tho very
man who (-hot him, but wo propped
him up and attempted to pour somo of
tho liquor down his parched throat.
Ho heard ovcry word and seemed to
undeihtand the situation thoroughly.
It was too late. With a grateful look
iu bis eyes as ho ttirnpil them a mom
