Stone's Hypocritical Address.
Quay's nominee for Governor had
a speech prepared for the convention
after his nomination, but he was not
given a chance to speak his piece.
The servants of the boss who com
posed the convention had obeyed or
ders in nominating his man, but what
the nominee's views might be on pub
lic questions was of no interest to
them whatever. Probably they be
lieved that he had no views except
such as his master allowed him to
Candidate Stone having missed the
opportunity of tiring off his speech at
a convention that didn't want to hear
it, sent it out nevertheless, as if it had
been regularly delivered. Its most
notable feature is its effort to connect
his machine candidacy with the war,
and to give an appearance of patriot
ism to Quay's rotten politics.
A single passage will be sufficient
to show the hypocritical character ot
the address :
"We are fighting the battles of Al
mighty God. Already grief sits about
the hearthstone ard tears are shed in
our State for the first of the fallen in
this war. ** • We of Allegheny
will not soon forget the Maine.
"Lord God of Hosts, be with us yet,
Lest we forget, lest we forget."
In accepting this nomination arrd
becoming the standard-bearer of a
great party in a great State, I natur
ally feel the responsibility that rests
upon me."
Speaking of this bare-faced attempt
to disguise machine rascality by , the
use of patriotic expressions and an
invocation to the Almighty, the anti-
Quay Republican Philadelphia Ledger
says : "It would be extremely diffi
cult to compress into as brief a form
so striking an example of the unseem
ingly mixing o! political and demo
gogic platitudes with unconsidered
There could not be a more severe
condemnation of Quay's candidate
than the above quotation extracted
from one of the most reputable Re
publican journals in the State.
"Lest we forget" the real issue of
the contest, in which the people of
the State are about to engage, it must
be born in mind that this man Stone,
whom a political, licentious, autocrat
has forced upon the Republican party
as its candidate for Governor and
who so hypocritically prates about
"fighting the battles of Almighty
God," is merely -the retainer of a
party boss by whose election to the
governorship a vicious political ma
chine would maintain its misrule of
this State.— Dem. Watehman.
