THE ANNUAL ADDEESS.
This evening Tresident Curtis delivered
bis annual nddress at Association Hall.
There was a large audience, many of whom
were ladies. During the course of his ad
dress be said:
Since our last annual meeting a party change
in the adniicistration of the national Govern
ment has occurred. Seven months of tho new
administration have passed, and as friends of
Civil service reform onr questions to-day are
obvious and simple. What was the declaration
of the successful party upon the subject of re
forniT What were the pledges of Its candi
dates? How have those pledges been fulfilled,
and' what are the prospects of reformT
Four years ago in speaking of President
Cleveland, then recently elected and inaug
urated, I aid that he "was not committed to
the prosecution of reform as the candidate of a
party which seriously desired it or promised
it." Certainly I cannot say this of President
The promises of the successful party last year
were as ardent as they were detailed "and abso
lute. They left nothing unexpressed. The
Irrepressible platform pledged the party to
many things, but to nothing with such redupli
cated and reiterated zeal as to reform in the
civil service; and having done this in the most
precise and positive words, it pledged the party
with especial fervor to keep its pledges.
To the ardor of the platform the
protestations of the President, as a candidate,
Jitly and fully responded. He declared that it
wonld be his sincere purpose if elected to ad
vance reform. He said that fitness and not
party service should be the essential test in ap
pointment, that fidelity and efficiency should
ONLY SURE TENUEE
of office, and that only the interest of
the public service should snggest removals
from office. The significance of these words is
unmistakable. Naturally and fairly inter
preted they forecast an executive action abso
lutely Incompatible with the practice known as
the spoils system. The country had precisely
the same assurance from the successful party
ot a policy ot concst reiorm in tne civil service
that it had of an administration favorable to
the policy of protection, and that no donbt
might arise from political differences between
the Executive and the Legislative branches of
the Government, the result of the election
showed that the Executive and the Legislature
would be in entire political accord.
How, then, have the pledges of the success
ful party and candidate -been fulfilled? Have
fidelity and efficiency proved to be the sure
tenure of office? Has fitness and not party
service been the essential test in determining
appointments? Has the interest of the public
service alor.o dictated removals from office?
Has the great pledge of the platform that the
epirit and purpose of reform should be ob
served In all Executive appointments been
honorably fulfilled? Or have such appoint
ments generally been made precisely as they
would have been made had there been no plat
form promises, no pledges of the candidate
and no public interest in civil service reform?
It is not an answer to these questions, it is
only an evasion of them, to say that reform is
not favored bv a majority of the people. The
only way in which the views of a majority of
me people can oe Known is oy tne result or an
election. If the election of last vear showed

Clearfield Republicans Will Toto for Him

Defeated on the First Ballot
ISr-ECIAL TELEGRAM TO THE DtSFATCH.1
Clearfield, October 1. The Republi
can County Convention of Clearfield county
for the election of delegates to the Guberna
torial convention next year resulted in an
overwhelming victory for General D. H.
Hastings. The sentiment of the county was
strongly for Hastings, as he lives in an
adjoining county, and has frequently
practiced in our courts and is very popular
here. The opposition to him started about
three weeks ago when "Charley" Andrews, a
brother of State Chairman W. H. Andrews,
visited the county. Then thcro was com
menced a quiet; but systematic canvass of the
county for Senator Delamater and money was
freely used. The well-known Crawford county
tactics were adopted. , ,
J. A. Reed, of Dn Bois, and R. P. Wool
ridge, of Woodward, were run for delegates ty
the Delamater men. Colonel E. A. Irvin. of
the famous Bucktait Regiment, of Curwens
ville, and Cyrus Gordon, a leading lawyer, an
nounced themselves candidates for delegates
in the interest of General Hastings. The fight
waxed hot. and to-day tho largest itepuniitau
convention ever held in the county elected the
Hastings delegates on the first ballot oy goou.

that the country was in favor of protection, it
showed by precisely the same demonstration
that it is in favor of civil service reform. If
there be any relation between party platforms
and the pledges of candidates and the results of
an election, the country in electing Mr. Harri
son declared for civil service reform.
PARTY ORGANS REBUKED.
A few weeks ago a hilarious administration
party organ at the capital of New York, one of
the most influential and representative party
journals, exclaimed: "Fifteen thousand fourth
class postmasters have been removed to date,
and Mr. Clarkson remains in Washington with
his coat off and his shirt sleeves rolled up. Go
it, Clarkson! Ont with the Whole 55.000 by Jan
uary 1st." It adds with natural enthusiasm that
civil service reform cannot command the support
of a corporal's guard of Republicans in Sew
lork. In Missouri the chief party organ
thinks Jlr. Clarkson's labors, althoneh laud
able, yet rather deliberate in the direction of
true reform, and is confident that "when the
dog dajs are over and cool weather sets in
Colonel Clarkson will greatly accelerate his
speed." The leading rural organ in the State
asserts plainly "neither political party cares a
continental about this humbug civil service re
form." In New Hampshire the chief administration
organ arraigning reform as "a stuffed and
painted and unpopular humbug." and "a bald
and rickety affair that bullies and wheedles
good citizens," inexorably condemns it "to the
fccrap heap." In West Virginia a zealous orcan
believes devotedly that the spoils belon- to the
victor, and the editor having secured his part
of the booty, announces that at the earliest
practicable date every Democratic ap
pointee in the office entrusted to him, "f rona
the humble and poorly paid applejack cancers
to the well-paid storekeeper and clerks -.n ho
succeeded by Simon-pure-all-wool-and-yard-'
wide Republicans." In Pennsylvania an ad-
juiuisnaiiuu journal 01 importance declares
that "the people are tiredof the sham of reform
and would cladly snow it under with their
votes." In Ohio a similar representative ad
ministration organ warmly commeuds an officer
who disregards the humbng.
ONE GOOD FEATURE.
The President has selected an admirable
Civil Service Commission. Every member of
it is a sincere believer in the necessity and the
practicability of reform, and its vigilance arid
vicor are the best earnest of its effective ser
vice. He has refused also to extend the time
appointed for including the railway mail ser
vice within the rules, and he has authorized
the publication of the eligible lists Beside
these few executive acts, the significance of
wnicn is destroyed oy the general executive
course, thcro is little that shows anv
effective party regard for the resoundin" nrom
ises of the platform. The few administration
Senators and Representatives who have pro
fessed to favor reform, and who lashed with
stinging rhetoric the failures and inconsisten
cies of the late administration, now when their
conviction and courace find a fittinc oPDor
tunity, are passive and silent.
Tbey see the general violation of pledsres bv
which the party pledged them. They see the
principles which they declare ought to control
the power of appointment and removal openly
disregarded. They see the abuses runnine
riot and apparently with their connivance!
which they have themselves denounced. Yet
instead of frankly refusing to do what they
joined in declaring should not be done, instead
of indijmant protest In tho name of their party
and of honest politics which should alarm
those who make merchandise of the party
faith and of the public service, thev wail feebly
that it is doubtful if the country "really wants
reform, that the pressure of trading politicians
Is very strong, and that there are many other
