For Governor, 1898.
CHARLES W. STONE, of Warren.
Subject to the decision of the Republican
State Convention.] j
Hon. C. \V. Stone is rapidly
forging to the front as the most
popular candidate for Governor.
The theory that gold is upprecia- j
ting has just a very black j
eye by the discovery that the value I
of the gold mined in the world in ■
IS!>7 exceeded the total value of !
both gold and silver mined in the ;
world in ISB7.
It is now estimated that the Feb- I
ruary receipts under the Dingley |
law will reach §12!),000,000, which j
Avill be in marked contrast with the :
February receipts during the opera- ;
tions of the Wilson law. A tabu- l
lated table shows tlie February
receipts in each year since the be- i
ginning <>i the operation ol the Mc-
Kinley law, and covering all of i he
years in which the Wilson law was j
upon the statute books.
Treasury figures are assuming a 1
brighter and mure satisfactory con- j
dition. Receipts this month lor
thus far have averaged over a mil- J
lion dollars a day and prospects are
that next month will he even bet- I
ter. As the total expenditures of j
the Government average but a mil- i
lion dollars a day, it will be seen
that th ■ new law has already prac
tically reached the point promised j
by its framers —an income equal to j
the expenditures.
Economy and prompt business j
methods are the rule of action in I
the National House of Represent®- ;
tives, which is controlled bj r the j
Republicans. Present indications J
arc that the appropriation bills of
the present Congress will be kept j
at the lowest possible figure, and j
that the record for prompt action j
upon them as well as other inipor- I
tint measures will be an unusually
good one. Ten of the appropria
tion bilh have already pas.-ed the.
House, Jiiicl it is expected the re
maindei will he disposed of very
How do Senator Teller and his i
free-silver associates who have been
demanding that the bonds of the j
United States shall be declared
payable in silver justify their course
in the light of the fact that the
Mexican government, whose finan
cial methods they profess to so
much to admire, is just arranging
for a new issue of bonds payable
in gold and gold only ? tint a trifl- i
i:ig inconsistency of this kind cuts i
no figure with men who are mere- !
ly advocating a cause for what they |
can get out of it in the matter of J
official preferment or otherwise.
In discussing the Gubernatorial j
situation the Philadelphia Times j
01 Wednesday says:"lt was j
stated that the Wanamaker men !
will work in harmony with the C. !
W. Stone anti-Quay compaign in
the northwest, and that the friends I
of both candidates will combine
to insure the election of delegates j
hostile to Quay, in as many north- i
west counties as possible." It j
might as well be understood now |
and to the end of the campaign, j
that Hon. C. W. Stone is a candi- |
date for Governor as a Republican |
and not with the intention of j
'•kicking over the traces" if he is |
unsuccessful in his aspirations, j
That there will be a combination
in this section of the State"to!
ensure the election of delegates j
hostile to Mr. Quay," is news to I
Mr. Stone's supporters and there"j
is not the slightest probablity of
any movement of that character
materializing.—Kane Republican.
WASHINGTON, Feb. 21, 1898.
Prudence, patience and patriot
ism have characterized every act
of President McKinley and every
member of the cabinet since the
awful news was received of the
blowing up and sinking of the bat-
I th .-hip Maine, in Havana habor,
and the death of 250 of its crew,
in the midst of the excitement con
sequent upon the sensational ru
mors of Spanish treachery, they
have not for a minute lost their
heads. A naval Court of Inquiry
was at once appointed to ascertain
whether the loss of the Maine was
caused by accident or design, and
hy the time this is read ii will be
at work. I ntil it succeeds at get
ting at the truth, the administra
tion joins with brave Captain Sigs
; bee, of the Maine, is asking for a
suspension of public judgement,
i Not a scrap of news concerning the
catastrophe received by theadmin-
I istration, or an order issued by it
has been concealed, and nothing
; will be concealed. That the Presi
j dent is fully alive to our every in
j terest is shown by his promptly re
: fusing the request of the Spanish
| authorities at Havana to partici
! pate in the investigation, and that
' he is calmly performing his usual
I duties was shown by his departure
| for Philadelphia, to deliver an ad
! dress before the faculty and stu
; dents of the University of I'enn
-1 sylvania, on the 22nd inst.. in ac
j eordance with an engagement made
months ago. His example should
; hi' followed by good citizens every
i where.
Senator Wolcott. of Col., has
! more than once shown himself to
possess the faculty of calm judg
! nient in times of public excitement,
I and to be a real, not a bunconib
patriot, but never more strikingly
| than i.i the short speech he made
i against the misguided attempt to
t publish to the world a distrust of
our Navy Department, by provid
i ing for a Congressional investiga
j lion of the wreck of the Maine.
1 Mr. Wolcott said :"I desire to
I resent as utterly unfounded the
| suggestion that there is a patriotic
j citizen in the broad confines of this
I land who has not the fullest and
: most splendid and glorious confi
i donee in every department of this
j government, and in the depart
; nient of the Navy in particular,
! and it lias been true in every ad
j ministration since the time of
; Washington. The people of the
I'nited States have never yet been
called upon to distrust one of the
co-ordinate branches of this gov
, ernment, and they never will while
I the flag floats. The oilkvr.- Ap
i pointed to investigate this tragic
disaster will do their duty. : do
| not under-rate the importance of
i the legislative branch of the gov
ernment ; 1 believe in its dignity
] and its wisdom, and in the open
ness of its discussion of public
questions : but what we need now,
in my opinion, is a decent and dig
nified silence in the face of the ap
palling calamity which has fallen
i upon our people. There are times
! for speaking and there are times
| for silence, and at this time, when
! we face the awful event that has
; overtaken us, we should restrain
! any expression of opinion or ex
j pression of our belief as to thecau
i ses of this terrible disaster until in
! a proper, regular, and formal way,
! an investigation may be had by the
I Navy Department, which we know
i will be conducted with the utmost
! uprightness and the utmost integ
j rity." Senator Lodge of Mass.,
I said on the same subject ; ''Does
' anyone suppose that the Captain
| of that ship, who, wounded and
j stunned by the explosion remained
; the last upon the sinking vessel,
! and who, in the midst of that aw
' ful excitement, sent a dispatch
j showing a coolness which is an
! honor to the American name, is
| j big to lie about his ship? The
' Sc. retary of the Navy is a man of
distinguished ability, of honor and
patriotism. ' If anyone imagines
i that Secretary Long will not tell
the truth and insist upon the whole
of it, he little knows the character
of the man. I think those who
: know Theodore Roosevelt would lie
| slow to believe he would seek to
conceal the truth in regard to this
disaster. We want to know the !
truth. If if was an accident which
destroyed the Maine, then let us
provide, so far as human foresight
can, against » recurrence. If it
was treachery, then the righteous
wrath of the American people will
take a signal vengeance for the
treachery which sent that ship to
the bottom. And let no one think j
to stay it." Congress showed its I
good sense by confining its action |
on this subject to making an api
propriation of $200,000 to be used ;
in trying to save as much of the j
costly equipments of the Maine as
The House, by a vote of 1">!) to
124, passed the bankruptcy Rill j
which was reported from the com
mittee as a substitute for the Nel
son bill, which was passed by the
Senate at the extra session.
The Southern cotton mill owners
have been protesting against the
constitutional amendment giving
Congress authority to regulate the
hours of labor in all the States. A
resolution providing therefor is
now being considered by the House
Judiciary Committee.
In this section of the state the
naturally strong feeling for C. W.
Stone, of Warren county, for Gov
ernor, is growing and gaining
strength. He would make a good
candidate; we believe him to be
honest and capable, and a fit man
in every respect. Erie county has
delegates announced who ask the 1
votes of their party on the ground j
that they are pledged to ('. W. j
Stone. In this county Col. Dick, j
.1..1. Carter, .Jesse More and L. <). j
McLane are announced for dele- i
gates, unpledged to rny one, but '
but pledged to opsose to the end :
the manipulations of W. 11. An
drews and others who arrogate to ;
themselves the rigtht to do the pol- j
itical thinking for the Republicans j
of Pennsylvania. All Republicans
may trust Dick, Carter, Moore
and McLane. — Meadville Gazette.
