Harry Wlttlif, chairman of the Kepub

the total registration for today would

was In the northern and northeastern
sections of th city. In South and West
Philadelphia the registration officials had
a comparatively easy time.

SQUARELY ON PLEDGE
MADE TO PEOPLE
Republican Candidate for
Governor Refuses to Be a
Party to Political Bargain
or Treachery. ,
PITTSBURGH, Sept. lf,.-Dr. Mnrtn j
Brumbaugh, Republican candidate f0
Governor, this morning Issued tho follow
Ins stntement In reply to tho offer of th
Philadelphia North Amorlcan to support
him lf ho would repudiate Penroseism.
"My attention has beon called to a let
tor addressed to mo nnd appearing n
newspaper. I havo had no copy of this
"In this lotler It appears that the writer
under the nssuranco of a proffered sup!
port to me, seeks an excuse to glvo sup
port to tho opposition. Kach one has
perfect right In this campaign to follow
whatever guldanco ho may select, but I
absolutely lofuso to be made a party la
any political bargain or treachery.
"It scenm that some people are unabl
to understand tho Inngunge in my pr.
mary platform. I Infer this from a
stittcmont of the editor that even he
trained In tho use of language, finds my
statements vague and Indellnlte. It L
hownver, comforting that the vutcrs gen
erally scorned to understand my lang
uage and comprehend my motives. To
make clear my position in the several
matters referred to In tho letter abovi
cited, 1 wish to say:
"First. I stand for every statement In
my primary platform. I shall use my
best endeavor to keep faith with th
people. The things I stand for 1 shall
continue to stnnd for nnd work for.
"Second. I have no understanding with
anybody to do or not to do anything In
any wny at any time In this campaign
while In olllce. I know no boss. I never
will. Kven a newspaper cnmiot boss me.
My hands are open, my henrt is free,
my mind holds no political promise. I
hnve one unswerving purpose to live ,
with my conscience whether I hold ofllct
"Thltd. T have declared for local option
nnd stand by that declaration. I havo
assured people In a score of utterance
that I shall do all I honorably can to
promote legislation favoring local option.
What more can an honest man say or
"Fourth. I havo always been a friend
of childhood. I havo given my life In'
a lnrge wny to conserve nnd promote the
strength, the education the moral wcl
fine of all our people. I have had many
years of practical experience In dcalln?
with the labor ot children In this State.
N'o man has had a larger or more sacred
relation to tho problem. I refer to my
record. 1 shall allow no one, even !n
academic discussion, to stnnd more surely
for the best possible legislation for all
our woikers, men, women nnd children.
"As n teacher I have found it necessary
at times to repeat what has already been
stated. Some pupils learn only after
such repetitions. Somo refuso to learn
even then, because they are resolved not
to do so. "
"In tho Mny primaries So.l.ooo people ot
Pennsylvania, nil legally qualified voters,
gave me their support as a candidate on
th" Hepubllcan ticket. I carry their
brief. 1 shall do so to the end. The ottwr
Itepubllcan candidates also carry a direct
brief from the people who supported them
nt the primary. I shall lend myself to no
leader or group or faction of an sort.
As I hnvo from the outset. I shall to tin
last go steadily on In my firm determina
tion to glvo the people of Pennsylvania
clein, capable and conscientious admin
istration of the ofllee to which I hope th
voters in November will elect me
