The weakness of the prosecution
of Senator Quay is the failure of
the real prosecutor or prosecutors
to come to the front. As the case
now stands, supposing that it is a
prosecution for political purpose,
Quay will lose none of his suppor
ters, and his opponents will gain

The national strength of the
party should not only be maintain
ed but increased. This is to be
done only by supporting the
straight Republican ticket. It is
no time to experiment, locally or
otherwise, with the opposition's
pleas and promises. Remember
what Lincoln said concerning the
folly of "swapping horses while
crossing a stream."—l'ittsburg

Many people believed last year
that Wananiaker, Swallow it Co.,
were sincere, and voted with them
under that impression. The pre
sent campaign has demonstrated
beyond controversy that they are
seekers after otlice, and disappoint
ed ones at that. Much of the
strength they gained last year has
deserted them this year on account
of the statements they are making
being so ridiculous that it is im
possible for them to substantiate
them. The public has lost con
iidenc in their sincerity and conse
quently lost confidence in the men
themselves. —Chambersburg Repo
Colonel Stone's Campaign.
Colonel William A. Stone enters
upon the second week of his vigor
ouscampaign, says the Philadelphia
Inquirer. His lirst week's tour
was very flattering, lie met large
and enthusiastic crowds every
where. It may be astonishing
news to Mr. .Jenks and Dr. Swal
low, but the fact seems to be that
the Republican party of Pennsy
lvania is very much alive, and it
apparently resents the slanderous
and despicable nature of the cam
paign of its combined foes.
There has never been so atrocious
a campaign as the one which is
being waged against the Republi
can party. It has been utterly
devoid of truth and has been car
ried on with a. reckless disregard of
decent criticism. Slanderous ton
gues have hissed their palignant
hatred and abusive harauguers
have borne false witness from many
a stump. Yet above all this de
famatory oratory Colonel Stone
towers unscathed, untouched by
venom and without a charge to
meet except that be is a Republican.
Jt may be a crime to lie. a. Repub
lican, but we don't believe the
great majority of the voters of
Pennsylvania think so. As no other
crime, is charged against Colonel
Stone, why t hould lie not l>e elect
ed? Dr. Swallow, who has been
convicted in the criminal courts of
bearing fal>e witness, declares that
the Republican party is corrupt,
but lie cannot expect to win upon
the platform that he is the onlv
honest man left and that all Repub
licans are thieves. Mr. Jenks may
prove to his own satisfaction that
the salvation of the country de
pends upon his election to the
< Jovernorship, hut there are a few
Republicans remaining who are
not deceived by the Swallow exag
gerations—exaggerations which a
jury considered slanderous—and
who are not led astray by the ef
forts of Mr. .Jenks to show that all
political purity is centred in the
Democratic party. The bludgeons
of the assassins of character have
not brain-clouted all of the Repub
licans yet, and we rather think that
there arc enough of them left to
reason sensibly and to understand
the danger, not only to Pennsylva
nia. but to the country, in turning
the State over to the l'oes of the
Stone and Gobin and the Repub
lican candidates can be trusted,
and if they can be, then why ahould
Pennsylvania take any chances at
a time when Pennsylvania's hearty
support is needed to aid the admin
istration in the great national
policies upon which we are about
[From our Regular Correspondent.)
WASHINGTON, Oct. 10, 1898.
Secretary Long poohpoohs the
story that the battleships Oregon
and lowa are being held at New
York until it is known whether the
Spanish Peace Commissioners will
refuse to accept our terms of Peace,
in order that they may, in that
event, be available to accompany a
fleet to the Coast of Spain, to do
some more lighting, and says that
the battleships will start during
the present week for Honolulu,
just as they were ordered to do as
soon as they could get ready. As a
matter of fact, no member of the
administration has the slightest
doubt as to the acceptance of our
terms and the negotiating of a
treaty of Peace by the Peace Com
mission, now sitting at Paris, al
though they expect the Spanish
Commissions to splutter and delay
doing so as long as they consider
it safe to do so. The Spanish Com
missioners are not fools; they win
see the inevitable as well as all the
rest of the world can. The whipped
nation always has to bow before
the conquering nation.
A number of Washington labor
organizations are openly repudiat
ing the attempt of certain labor
organizations controlled by Demo
crats, to make it appear, through
misleading publications, that the
organized labor of Washington is
opposed to the reelection to Con
gress of Representative Babcock,
of Wisconsin. Among the latest
to act was the Eccentric Engineers.
The resolution adopted by this as
sociation arraigned the attack upon
Mr. Babcock as mean and contemp
tible and said that it should be de
nounced by all labor organizations
which believed in justice. It dos
ed as follows: "We have always
found in 1 lie Hon. Joseph \V.
Babcock, of Wisconsin, a friend
ever ready and willing to advance
every matter presented by tin; re
presentatives of this organization
for the best interest of all classes."
It is Mr. Babcock's great success
as Chairman of the Republican
Congressional Committee that has
aroused the Democrats into mak
ing extraordinary efforts to prevent
his election. He says he is absolu
tely certain of re-election, and he
never makes predictions on guess
It is semi-officially announced
that the Executive order exempting
several thousand Federal positions,
which were placed under the civil
service rules by Mr. Cleveland, for
no better reason than to keep Dem
ocrats in otlice, will not be issued,
until after the Congressional elec
tion. The war prevented the issu
ing of this order several months
ago, and President McKinley is
averse to issuing it now, because
he knows that the Democrats would
charge him with doing so for effect
on the Congressional Campaign, if
The arrangements for President
and Mrs. McKiuley's trip to the
Omaha Exposition was sadly inter
fered with by the killing of Mrs.
McKiuley's brother, at Canton,
Ohio. The President and Mrs. Mc-
Kinley left Washington Saturday
night to attend the funeral, after
which the President will join the
party and proceed to Omaha, in ac
cordance with the original pro
gramme. It is probable that Mrs.
McKinley will remain at Canton,
although she may decide to accom
pany the President.
Before leaving Washington,
President McKinley signed an
order authorizing the free admission
to all Cuban ports, in possession of
the 1. S. of oxen for work purpo
ses, animals for breeding and for
food supplies, plows and all agri
cultural implements, except mach
inery. This order, as yet, applies
to only a few ports, but it will ap
ply to all Cuban ports very shortly,
as the Spaniards are to be hurried

Instead of being humiliated by
the testimony given before the War
Investigation Commission, as his
enemies hoped he would be, Secre
tary Alger has every reason to feel
proud of what the witnesses, in
cluding such men as Gens. Joseph
Wheeler Kit/hugh Lee, 11. V.
I Boynton, and F. V. Greene have
said of the management of the War
Department. The war veterans on
1 !»«• commission have been greatly
surprised to learn that in many
cases published in the yellow journ
als, as inflicting greatsuft'ering and
hardships on the troops, the sol
diers had more of almost every
thing than their own men had at
numerous times during the civil
war. Not a single witness has
even implied either neglect or guilt
on the part of official of the War
Department. Gen. Francis V.
Greene, who participated in the
Manila campaign, thinks the prin-
I cipal trouble in looking after the
1 troops during the war was that
army regulations fitted for a time
of peace were inadequate to meet
the sudden exigencies of war, and
he said in his testimony: "The
only suggestion that I would make
is that the army regulations, which
are now based on departments and
posts be adapted more for troops in
active campaign. These regula
tions are framed for a state of
peace; they do not fit the needs of
