Last year the retail grocer sold from
20 to -2 pounds of granulated sugar for
one dollar, but at the present time under

pounds is all that the same amount will

learning what the tariff means to them.

t W. dnesday G vi rnor Hastings de
manded the resignation of Secretary of
the Commonwealth Iieeder, and Gener
al Ueciler sent it to him. The governor's
anion is especially remarkable because
of two features. It is the first time in
the history of the state that the chief ex
ecutive has "fired" one of his cabinet,
and it is an imjcsing declaration of war
upon tjiwy and his followers. It is tak
at I larrisburg as notice to the anti-administration
people that there is to be

Mk. Cokiiis, the assistant comptroller
of the currency says that, capital is accu
i iulated iu this country at such a rate
that America will soon Ie financially in
dependent of (Jreat Uritain: and that,
with the lower rates of interest at which
our manufacturers will be able to bor--ow
money, "America will have a bet
ter chance at the market of Central and
South America for their cotton goods
markets that belong to them naturally,
but which are mainly absorbed by the
tu rmans and British now." Of course,
l'an-Americans is naturally our market:
but tiermany and England have absorb
ed it because of our narrow tariff and
navigation laws, and no amount of
sham reciprocity will undo that mis
chief. Coal, under the Wilson law, was
"protected" forty cents a ton. Under
the new law it is protected sixty-seven
cents a ton. The miners are striking
for an increase of their wages. Why do
the mine owners hesitate? The twenty
seveu cents increased protection should
warrant them in dividing their "protec
tion" with the miner, for, you have
often heard Kepublicau speakers and or
gans say, "the protection in given to
pay higher wages to the laboring men. "
Now why not nut the theorv ntn r,ra.

the laborer? Is it another illustration
of the false pretense, deception and hum

looks that way

goes, but it doesn't go far enough.
The Republican party cannot pass a
law that will cause the wheat crops of
the world beyond seas to blast next year,
nor can it legislate auother famine in
India, Bat the Republican party could
by legislation, make dolUr wheat a per
manent thing in this country. By re
storing 6ilver to its legitimate place in

to-day can be made permanent,
Every shout of joy raised by Repub

P'lts it, that it has no longer a "respect
able opposition party" to contend with.
We cannot recall the time when the R
publican papers fouud the Democratic
opposition in Pennsylvania a "respecta
ble" quantity. F. r twenty or thirty
years they have characterized it, at in
tervals, as copperhead or rebel, British
free trade or repudiating, and anarchi
cal. In Republican estimation there
was always something that robbed it of
"respectability." When a political par
ty in this country wins the encomiums
of its adversaries it is a certain indica
tion it doesn't amount to shucks as an
opposition party. It is praised and its
respectability" conceded pracisely to
the extent that it abandons its own prin
ciples and lines up with the party in
power. The Republicans found a cer
tain degree of "respectability" in the
boltocrats last year, but it was because
they were laboring to elect McKinley
and defeat Democratic congressmen and
legislators in close districts. "Respecta
bility," in this case was gauged by
treachery. "Respectability" in politics is rather
an indefinite quanty. The "respectable
element." so-called, prevailed in the
Legislature, having it almost unani
mously. Now the "respectable ele
ment is quarreling among themselves to
find terms af denunciation sufficiently
crushing to do justice to the misde:-ds
and varie i rascalities of that choice se
lection of "respectables." The boss
leaders of the "respectable" side of the
political fence are vying with each oth
er iu mutual denunciation of the knav
eries they each practice, while the rank
and tile are dividing into hostile politi
cal camps of "respectables." with loud
bawling that the other side is a com
pound of all that is bad.
The "respectability," of the Republi
can party of Penrsylvania is so sand
wiched between licensed plunder and
b ss rule that the word is commencing
to spell hypocrisy and cant.
Steadily the exports of grain contin

enormous exports of manufactured pro

ihe Democratic nominee for state
treasurer, Michael E. Brown, is a native
of Indiana county. He is about 43
years old. He was born near Blairs
ville, his present home, and in that town
he is interested in large abbatoirs and
storage houses, from which almost the
entire meat supply of Indiana county is
drawn. His father was John Brown,
one of the Indiana pioneers. The nom
inee's career in state politics dates back
to 1S7U, when he was a delegate to the
state convention. Before that time he
had been burgess of Blairsville. He
was afterward a delegate to the conven
tion that nominated Pattison for his
second term, and was later a member of
the state committee.
Walter E. Ritter, of Williamsport,
nominee for auditor general, is a native
of Lycoming couniy, and is in his 38th
year. He was educated in the com
mon schools and graduated at the Lock
Haven ttate normal in ISS1. At the
age of 17 he began teaching and for one
year was the principal of the Hughes
vine public schools, and for three years
principal of the schools of South Will,
iamsport. He was registered as a law
student in 1SS4. and was flrimitt
practice two years later. At present he
is engaged in the practice of his Drofea-
sion and has a leading place at the Ly
coming bar. He has been a delegate to
several state conventions, and ha
minor political cfhces. In ISS9 he was
elected to the general assembly, and al
so in 1891 and 1S93. In 1S91 h .o

masked men entered the house of
Michael Slater, a farmer, three miles
west of here, about 9 o'clock last nieht
The ruffians bound and gagged Slater,
aod after beating him, carried their cap
live out into the yard. There they
placed him under a tree, and removing
the gag, ordered him to tell where he
kept bis money and other valuables
The oil man said he did not keep his
money iu the house, and begged them
to release him, as he said they were kill
The robbers laughed, and while one
man stood guard over him. the other
four went to the house. The family
were all away, and the robbers secured a
gold watch, silverware and various arti
cles of value.
Slater is a man of means, and was
supposed to have boarded in his honse a
portion of his wealth The marauders
made a vigorous effort to find its hiding
place, but were disappointed. Bureau
drawers were emptied, carpets torn up,
bedticks ripped open, ashes taken from
the stove, and every conceivable place
that would afford a hiding place for val
uables or money was searched.
After a hunt of more than four hours
the men departed. About 3 o'clock this
morning Slater succeeded in litterating
himself, when he gave the alarm, and,
together with neighbors, gave pursuit,
but was unable to find any tiace of the
fugitives. He says he recognized three
of the men.

Corkins, a Sedalia capitalist, aud Leo
Cloud, an expert mining engineer of
Cincinnati, representatives of a St- Louis
and Cincinnati syndicate, will leave here
to-morrow for the west coast of Mexico,
to practically verify the value of gold
placer and quartz mines which have re
cently been secured by the syndicate
through concessions and mineral land
grants from the tepublic of Meico.
Messrs Corkins and Cloud will go di
rect to llermosillo, and from there to
the gold fields in the new "Eldora, loca
ted ia the Yaqui Indian country, which
has just been opened to entry to white
men This part of Mexico has been ex
plored but littie by the whites, but if the
reporto of the syndicate's prospectors
are true, the inland mountain ranges
along the west coast of Mexico are rich
er even than those of the Kbondyke.
The placer mines are said to be mar
velously rich ia scale and nugget, while
the quartz rock in the upper ledges con
tain veins of milling ore which assays
$300 to f 2,500 per ton. The syndicate
succeeded in keeping the discovery a se
cret before securing its mining patents
and concessions, and if the reports re

syndicate will be able to turn the tide
of fortune-hunters from the gold fields
of Alaska to the Eldorado of Mexico.

Washington, September 3. 1S97 It
has always been considered the pro er .
thing to make support of the national
platform of a political pa ty the test of
a man's 1 tyaliy to bis party. The plat
form adopted by a party in national con
vention is the only authentic declaration
of the principles of thai party and must
be considered until another national con
ventio i meets and adopts an tber plat
form. Tuese facts are so self-evident
that mention of them seems almost un
ncessary. yet objection is being raised
!ecause Democrats are insisting that the
platform adopted by the Chicago con
vection must tie accepted as the princi
ples of the Democratic party. To do
anything else would be a radical depart
ure from all political precedents.
There is a clash of authority in the
interior department between Secretary
Bliss and Indian Commissioner Jones
that may end in a big row among
prominent Republicans Mr. Jones'
present assistant is Mr. Thomas P.
Smith, who is a Democratic h- ldover.
Mt Smith has made a tip top record and
Mr Joues would like him to remain in
his office. Boss Hanna directed some
time ago that one of bis Ohio proteges
Tawner, by name, who has been serv
ing as the private secretary of Secretary
Bliss, should be appointed asst. commis
sioner, and the appointment was about
to te made when Commissioner Jones
heard about it aud notified Secretary
Bliss that he would not have Tawner for
bis assistant. Then there was a high
old time in the office of Secretary Bliss,
and the relations between him and Com
missioner Jones are very much 6trained,
but Tawner hs not yet beeu appointed.
Of course, if B s Hanna insists he will
l. and if Jones doesn't like it be can
resign It is a custom t consult the
wishes of bureau chiefs in selecting their
assistants, and upon that custom Com
mi.ioner Jones belies.
Republicans would rather not talk about
the deficit of about twenty -six million dol
lars shown by the official figures of the
government's receipts and expenditures
for July and August, the first two
months of the uew fiscal year. They
have already done too much talking
about the surplus that the new tariff was

Representative De Graff anreid, of Tex
as, is in Washington. Speaking of
wheat and silver he said: "Our farm
ers are this y ear blessed with abund
ant crops and the wheat-producing coun
tries on the other side of the ocean have
short crops In other words, the de
mand for American wheat is almost
greater than the supply; hence the big
prices which the speculators are just now
getting. I am sorry to say this will not
alwavs continue, for next year the de
mand for wheat by reason of good crops
on the other side may I e only normal,
and in that event our farmers will noi
receive auy more for their wheat than
formerly Let the mints of the United

would see the price of the white metal
rise steadily until it reached the level of
