David P. Thomas.
Tho IrioT announcement
death of Divid P. Thomas
The TRIBUNE of yesterday
ot the
m&do in
was received with universal regret by
his many friends about th city. As
an oxniiipta of true and earnest man
hood with fined principles and hi(;h
nmbitions, the deceased bad few eqaals
In our midst. His open-haniled charities
and unswerving fidelity to frieuds could
not help but win tha respect of
nil rejardless of differences of eenti
inont tbat might exist upon other mat.
tri, David P. Thomas was numbered
Rtimng the ideals of the slf-mademan.
Doru in Waits 44 years ago, ho was
thrown upon his own resource when a
mre lad, and went to sea. After an
experience of several years ou ship
board ho drilled to this country an 1
settled in the Riiti'raeite r:rio:i. Ata-
rrftiousaud energetic, he tool: an activp
pnrt in po'litics and soon became oae'of
tlin recognised leaders.
In tha days of tho Labor Reform
purl lui was one of the most promi
nent and euthnai'istic supporters of the
cans', and wai a stockholder In the
lalinr publication known as the Labor
Advocate. Since the collapse of the
labor movement Mr. Thomas has boun
an out and out Republican and has ac
complished koo 1 work for the organi
zation whenever Liu services were
Deeded. Mr. Tbomaa was probably
best known 01 tiio proprietor of the
Blade, a paper devoted to tho interests
of the Welsh citizens of Lackawanna
county and a journal that ba assisted
materially in furthering Republican
ism in this city.
The deceased was u raetnbir of the
Scrauton Board of control, represent
in the Second ward for six years and
also served tho board as secretary for
two ye.irs in an acceptable manner.
Mr. Thomas at the time of his death
was national secretary of the Ivorits
Society of America. He was intru
mental in establishing the American
branch of the society and has been one
of tbo most successful of Ivorito uec
retaiies. Upon his visit to" the old
country last suumu r Secretary Thomas
was accorded the highest honors thut
could ifc bestowed by the society. Mr.'
Thomas elao took groat interest in
mu-ical matters and wa3 vice-president
of the Curabro American society and
ono of the earnest supporters of all
musical enterprises in the vnlloy of
the Lackawanna,
In daily life tha deceased was pleas
ant and companionable. Generous al
most to a fault, bis purse was always
op-n to charity, bis heart went out to
tho i.fllictei in every walk of life, aud
supplication for relief never failed to
receive a hearty response. Honest and
npright in all dealings; generous,
brave and true, unswerving in fidelity
to friend, David P. Thomas furnished
an exnmplo of life worth of emulation.
An amusing illustrmion of the wide
shots at the target of fame is given In
t:ie rueo of one George Griffiths, of
London, who has accomplished the
feat' of traveling around the world in
less tiros than was consumed by the
famous corresrjondent, Nellie Bly.
Griffiths sneceoded in making the
trip around the world in sixty days.
While Nfdlie Btys exploit attracted
much attention an.1 was describsd in
column upon column of newspaper
gnsb, .Griffiths' trip has boon told in a
ten-line dispatch to tho country papers,
and the ambitious elobo trotter has
dropped as completely out of sight as
a Tammany politician in the hour of
defeat. Globe trotters are not the fad
this year.
Senator Hill's Future.
Althangh,aR a matter of course, there
hare bran prorap; donlals, it neverthe
less rt mains possible and oven plausible
that at the laajt moment Senator Hill
will introduce a proactive tariff bill
with the in.come tax eliminated, move
Its substitution for the economio wbnt-is-it
now before the senate, resign his
toga if outvoted, and, going back to
New York ntate, take the guber
natorial nomination on this as an
issue and mako his appeal. Conkllng
like, to the people for a vindication.
There aro several reasons why this
course le a possibility. In the first
pkice, New York will otherwiao cer
tainly elect a Republican governor.
Flow er knows this, and it is common
rumor that only by the strongest party
prusAure can he be induced to put up
the $125,000 necessary to give his can
didacy for rc-nomlnation so much as
the ghost of a show for success.
A second reason, of equal importance,
is that unless by iom such bokd, adroit
and dramatic surprise. Senator Hill
can rally again to tha Democratic sup
port that peculiar and desperate popn
lar enthusiasm which has always been
his greater-t political resource, it will
be necessary for the magnificent state
political machine which Hill, Mnrphy
and Croker built up to lay by for re
pairs, in doing which it takes many
chances of becoming rusty and out of
date. Already the Trojan senator has
notified his Elmira colleagne of
his intention, for presidential reasons,
to resign the state chairmanship and
get under political cover. The personal
odium, t' o icdivldnal ohnoxionsneaa
tbat pertains to Edward Murphy, jr.,
doeB not disqualify David B. Hill from
again taking active and peraonal part
in the management of the atate cam
paign, lb fact, with Crooker fheing,
tneehan in diagraee and Murphy
atardlng on the ragued edge of a
priniod and loaded political volcano,
Bill ia practically the only executive
genius left to inspire onfidenoe among
the demoralized purty workers.
Against these argumvnts are sot the
improbability of Hill's relinquishing a
safe berth in tho senati) in favor of so
dubious a prospect as tbat which now
confronts the Empire state Democ
racy. If the ssuator worn wedded to
the senatorial customs uud t'.ilt thor
oughly at eaeo in his present role this
might possibly persuade him to re
main. It ia to be remembered, how
ever, that all his lift he has been en
gaged in rapid and incessant political
warfare. He is tricky, bold and strat
egic With him it is the unexpected
that happens. Although intellectually
fitted for it, one cau with difficulty im
agine a less euitable aud congenial
placo for David B. Hill than in the
United States aeuate. When ho no
cepted the Beat ho now occupies it was
in a manher that surprised and even
startled the country. It will not be
long before this indefatigable man will
n;:ain be at his old tricks. Any calcu
lation bearing on the politics of the
coming few mouth's wilt be incomplete
unless it provides for bold aud daring
Rtrokcs br this master strategist lu the
Democratic party.
Wheat is Chicago last week dropped
to S3 j cents, it cout kwer than in July,
1861. It goes without saying that ttie
western farmers are delighted with
these renewed evidences of Democratic
good times.
Tho State Convention.
With the loaders and tho masses in
substantial accord all along the line,
today's Republican convention will be
more of tho nature of a ratification
than a battle. Through painful expe
rience the Republican leaders of Penn
sylvania have been guided to tbo point
where they can look over into the
promised land of restored harmony and
party zeal, admission to which is freely
(hairs upon the aiuglo conditi&n that,
tun will of the peopio shall not need
lessly be ignorod. They aro iti a mood
to comply with this reasonable requi
site, and today will witness the sealing
of tho compact.
It is fortunate for tho leaders and
also fortuuato for tho party tbat this
happy understanding should be reach
ed ut this particular tiiu -. The mo
ment is almost providentially oppor
tune. It arrives with the party recov
ering from au awful disaster, and with
the people kindly disposed to rectify
that regrsttahlo blunder From ocean
to ocean the hopes of the Republicans
are in the Mbeadaifit aud recognised
leadership is exercising caution and
conciliation. All that is needed to
cement these various factors into a
grand and sweoping victory is the
kuowledge among the peopio that Re
publicanism rostored would not mean
bossism grown nrrogant, but rather
prescient organization enlightened as
to its proper function and the confi
dence of tho nation invitod ba ok to its
old rulers.
Pennsylvania, as the first groat com
monwealth to hold a majority state
convention, should modulate its utter
Knees an l fashion its conduct so that
a wholosome example may bo set for
the guidance of the party in other
states. Unanimity and enthusiasm,
tuleraace and conservatism, frank re
gard for the welfaro of the whole party
and cordial recognition of the fair
right of the majority should be the
Ceynotes. The platform, particularly,
should be studied with care and
clothed in language befitting the key
stone -stats of protection to horn) in
dustries. Thero should be, no yielding
up of principle, no effort to placate ig
norance, no sacrifice of moral prestige.
In the swift fate of tho recently tri
umphant Democracy, plunged withiu a
twelvemonth from unparal leled ex il
lation to unprecedented dejection aud
hopeless chaos, we may perceive the
fruite of demagogiim made pructlcal.
Republicans want none of that in
Fortunately, at the dawning of con
vention day everything was auspicious.
The will of the peopfe had secured ex
pression in a gubernatorial candidacy
that was nowhere even opposed ; and
in two candidacies for congressmen-at-large
in which rare personal fitnesss
were suitably yoked with expedient
geographical location. Tha two chief
centers of Republican strength had
won for themselves recognition, one in
a candidacy for the lieutenant gover
norship and the other in iho acceptance
of lt choice for the secretary of inter
nal affairs. With the auditor general
ship seemingly certain lo go to one of
the banner centers of Republican rural
strength, there is completed what in
common parlance is sailed a "slate"
of exceptional merit, ability and wise
distribution. Although not a creation
of the leaders, it is as accsptable to
tbem as t the masses, und will have at
the polls the heartioit support of both.
A Lesson for Anarchists.
Monday was a day fraught with ad
monition for tho bomb throwing au
arcbists. The exrention of seven of
their bretharn ought to have convoyed
an impressive lesson to the life-dostroy-ing
plotters. Brail Henry, the devil
ish author of tho explosion in the cafe
ofvthe Hotel Termllius, in Paris, was
guillotined, aud at Barcelona six of
the wretched conspirators against the
life of General Martinez da Campjs
were shot to death as a penalty for
their crime.
There is no place In the civile d
world for the murderous wretches who
seek to overthrow Jaw and order by the
commission of the foulest of crimes.
Murder never righted any wrong.
Whatever evils' arise from misgoveru
tnent or existing social conditions, the
remedy is,not to be found In the reck
lesB methods of the assassin whose very
existence ia a menace to the conditions
under whioh the peaoe and prosperity
of mankind can alono reach their high
est state of perfection.
It is a singular trait, though, of the
reckless characters who have banded
themselves together as bomb throwers,
that they look upon those of their unto
ber who expiate theft crimes by death, as
klmving beeu martyrs to a jnst cause. It
is therefore useless to hope that the
reformation of any of the ilk oan be
effected by tho example which vindi
cated law now and thou furnishes.
Hut frrquont executions cannot fail to
IrUvu a salutary effect, as the results
will bf9 to deter from the commission
of crime. Tho anarchist cannot be rt
formeJ, but he may be gradually annihilated,
Ravages of tho Storm.
Tho extent or the damage caused In
various sections of the country by the
lato storm ia aorious, but foftuuatoly
thero has been comparatively stnull
loss of life. The destruction of prop
erty, however, will aggregate a vast
sum, and must inovitably add to the
prestige of the financial depression al
ready weighing down upon the
country. But small in proportion is
such a calamity compared to the Johns
town disaster, in which s many human
lives were sacrificed.
Still it is not pleasant to contemplate
tho ruin wrought thui early in the
season by ono of the most dangerous of
the eb'tnents when it breaka beyond
its natural barriers. At presont it la
hard to determine just whore the loss
is greatest. Wllliamiport, much of
whose prosperty is dependent upon her
saw injlls, will feel the effects keenly,
31 a fortune in logs was swept away.
Great damugo to shipping has also re
quited. The ravages of the flood along
the Schuylkill rivar re severe, and
many nullifies have been left h.mielesa.
From other sections ahio come reports
of destitution cained by the Hood, but
it is useless to attempt a computation
of either the suffering or damage that
have resalted from the storm. The

with silver or tjold, are effegtivo
upon a delicately tinted ribbon

enough to warrant tho price at which
they aro sold. One r. presents a gold
