The nomination of tbo Kepnblican

was. attended with considerable mois
ture, but that was notuiuR to the del

An Excellent Work.
Thtro exists In this state, although
li'ttlo known, .'an agency which in its
p irticular field isdoinf excellent anxil
inry work in the cultivation of sound
political jrindulen among the people.
We refer to tho Farmers' l'rotectire
Tariff L?ague of PnMyl?anla, the or
ganization of which has been effected
largely through the Instrumentality of
N. B. Critclitield, of Soinorset. the
league's present president: John Q.
Landia, or Lancaster, and J. NY. Nos
illt. of Allegheny, its seoretaries; and
William Hertzlor. of i'ort Royal, Juni
ata, now its treasurer. The'leagu has
been in existence only three years, yet
daring that time it has distributed
millions of pages of protection litera
tnro among the farmers, miners and
wage-eat aen of Pennsylvania, Ohio,
West Virginia, Delaware and other
plates; snd lias contributed in no small
degree to the popular erection now
vifible toward the Republican faith.
This us.u'ulness could bs much in
creased by an increase In its avilnble
funds, lu a current iddran the league
Very aptly says:
There 1$ an Imperative duty dovolviuK
apon the friends of protection in this
country that has tog long been neglocted.
They must ay special attention to tho
education ot our young men in tho prii.
ciples and policy of tho protective system.
The overwhelming importance of thi i can
not he too str 'Ugly enforced. Thousands
of young men in the several educational
institution! of the country are having
tlair minds poisoned with free trade
theories expounded by teachers and pro
fessors who nre. mero theorists, who have
never performed manual labor
and have had no practical
experience in any business whlc!',
as a rule, is a sure onre for all free trade
nonsense. Here in Pennsylvania alone wo
have IdjbOO yotmg men in the colleges,
HOademies and normal schools of the state,
lnar.y of whom will become teachers of tho
you' h ot tl.o land, in wUo.su hands should
be jilaccd from time to time sound protec
tion Hteraturo which wall help to neutral-tie-
free trado theories and low tariff
ideas found la most of tho'ibooks ou politi
CaFeoollomy ia libraries of our state at tho
present time. To put protection literature
mto tho bands of these young men is a
work to which the Pennsylvania Tariff
league proposes to address iuelf. Ic Is a
won; in which every friend of tho protec
tive policy should willingly co-opurate.
This is indeed, a work that cannot bo
prosecuted too vigorously. There is no
greater need today than for a general
rcognitioQ among our colleges of the
(act that this American country of
rurs is, from its very location, origin.
Settlement and training an exception
to European standards; that it, needs a
philosophy of ite own, and a political
economy of its own; and. abovo all, that
it needs a feeling among its people that
Tvliat lawful nets they propose to do
shrmld not necessarily tirst be referred
to England lor gracious approval. The
protective system is one item in this
iie.edcd Araericaniz ition or America,
and whatever tends to strengthen its
hold upon the intelligent young of our
country is to he regarded as a patriotio
deed, worthy of cordial approval ami
A Judge Brown np at Newburg has
furnished an example of judicial expe
diency that might be followed with
excellent results elsewhere. The mag
istrate heard tho story of a woman who
wanted a divorce from her unfaithful
liiistjand and the evidence of witneises
and granted tho divorce 'with alimony
in tho brief space of ten minutes. If
divorces must be had it is well that
tltoy should bo granted with neatness
In tho management of conventions
although much experienced, Harris
burg has one thinustill to learn. It has
yot to learn to discriminate between
the local, .ward heeler who may chance
to possess passing claim upon the favor
of the powers that grant admission to
the convention ball, and the hard
working nowspapor representative who
goes to conventions not so much out of
personal curiosity or "pull" as because
he is one of the few trained eyes
through whioh the people of the entire
nation scrutinize the convention's
work. The ward tioftet peddler is no
donbt an cxcollent and necessnry func
tionary in bis place; bnt his place is
'not in the beggarly space customarily
allotted to tlio active newspaper cor
respondents, and a system which inter

Bet ve can never satisfy tbo wishes of

When it came to arranging the de
tails of last Wednesday's Republican
state convention at Harrisbnrg Chair
Gilk6ion delegated the task to Assist
ant Secretary Fetterolf.and he, in turn,
handed the responsibility for stage ar
rangements oveV to a subordinate, who,
rfter assigning to the active newspaper
workers a space insufficient for a three
instrument orchestra, then prooeeded
further to encroach npon this minia
ture reservation by distributing press
tickets among men who oould not, to
save their lives, describe the difference
bitweou a semi-colon and a printer's
stick. The conaeqnsnce was that
huudreds of thousands of Uj
puidlcan voters wWjB rtdied upon
their favorite newspapers to pio
t.:ro the convention's work were
elhjwod cat into the darkness because
pttaonai favorites of the j.mitors and
cuspidor thianera at the H.irrUburg

ipecla'lv to chrouicl) the convention
pxeoeedugl This kiud of thing is
common to all parties mid to all inan
igtmnntl ; but it would not be common
loeg if the newi'.p :pors of the state
were to make more vigorous and con
certed insistence upon their rights. In
(behalf of the great reading public,
whose interests they represent, the
news journals of Pennsylvania ought to
demand buuiuoss-like treatment in the
future. They would got it if they did.
If this humidity continues much
longer Sxrnnton can have a ilood, too.
PBOTOS80R GrARNER, the student of
monkey lingo, has published several
urtich-8 upon his work in Africa where
in a steel cage ho claim's to have studied
tho biuiiian dialoct and conversed with
numerous specimens of the missing
link of high and low degree. Profes
sor Garner's articles read well and en
title hiiu to membership in the Ana
nias club without further recommenda
tion. Coal is becoming scarce in certain
localities of our commonwealth, but
there is no immediate danger of any of
our neighbors expiring from thirst.
It is indicative of healthy political
sentiment when thousands of men,
foremost in their respective communi
ties, are willing to brav tho perils of
flood and storm and endure the incon
veniences of interrupted travel morely
to be present at a Republican state
convention, the work of which,
achieved without exciting incident,
had generally been foreseen. It is in
dicative of healthy political sentiment
when these men, whose collective su
periority over the average convention
throng was so distinct and conspicu
ous ns to occasion rejmttfd remark,
become so imbued with genuine party
feeling that tho oratory in which this
emotion found voice is admitted to
have been the most eloquent, earnest
and effective since the stirring days of
emancipation and civil war. Such in
cidents nro not mere accidents. They
have a profound and a hopfni ligotfl
cance, that bodes ill for the future of
Democratic partisanship in this conn
try. It is likewiso indicative of a whole
some state of public opinion wbon the
proposition at Ilarrisburg to offer a sop
to the Popnlistio zialote of the day In
the form of a quasi-iudorssment of un
limited silver coinage, instead of en
countering favor, met with such dis
tinct and overwhelming repudiation
that the suggestion was not oven re
peated. Among the membership of
ail groat organizations havinr in
charge th dissemination of certain
political principles there are naturally
two distinct classes thnt sometimes
elash. One class bclievo in principlo
because it is principle; the other, be
cause it is a convenient means to cov
eted personal ends. The former will
not bend their real convictions to the
false god of expediency, whoreas the
latter stand ready to change principles
as they would coats, with each varia
tion in the lickle temparature of popu
lar f vor. It is indicative of a whole
some stage in the progreas of revived
Republicanism iu this aommonwealtb
that tho tricksters and demagogues,
who sometimes disport themselves on
its surfnee, have beon properly subor
dinated; and that the battle of the im
mediate future is to be a fearless ono,
for principle, like those of earlier days
that form at onoe the party's glory
and the nations pride.
Among those who two yoavs ago
were misled into the Grover Cleveland
wilderness were thousands who, born
of Republican parents and roared
among the etevatrng influences of Re
publicanism in its formative period,
had of lnte years, ns they believed,
missed the true ring of sincoro convic
tion In many Republican platforms and
fancied they heard, instead, the piping
treble of expediency. Tney may be
wrong in this fancy. They certainly
were wrong in losing even momontary
faith in tho only American party of
modern times which has represented a
real and creative aim in our politics
further than the making of new offices
added to the seizure of the old ones.
They certainly were wrong in arguing
that because Republicanism showed, as
they supposed, momentary and super
ficial signs of moral deterioration it
lay within their power, or within tho
power of any man or men, to galvanize
the old, states-rights, slave-labor, se-oesaion-loving
Democracy into even
the semblance of monfl regeneration.
But right or wrong, they maile their
choice and bogan the 'experimont with
'results of familiar disastrousneis. We
invito the attention of those sincere
citizens to the in dilutions ws have jnat
described. Now, it seems to us, is an
excellent time to begin their atonement
for past errors; an excellent time to
get once more into the old homestead,
among old friends and in the old and
wholesome Republican ntmosphera.
The prossnt revival in the Republi
can party meana-an end to Mugwnmp
ery as u formidable political posii
bility. In an enconnter with white cnpi in
Arkansas recently the officers killed
several of tbo best citizens of St. Fran
cis coutity who were among the caps.
If this opposition to white cap fnn is
kept up for any length of time thero is
danger that the "best citizens" of the
southwest will be exterminated.

The approach of Memorial day never
fails to arouse feelings of reverence tor
our honored dead in the hearts of the
truly patriotic, and to thoee of riper
years the occasion is ono of significance.
To them the ceremonies, whioh aro re
garded with deligtit or uncoaotrn by
tho rising generation, have a double
meaning in awakening memories of the
past. As tho processions move to tho
sound ot the drum burdened with the
blossoms that beautify the last resting
places of the slumbering heroes, the
pages of memory are vivid with scenes
of other years when the marching hosts
moved southward in response tb a call
from tho beads of a tottering nation,
when hrnvo lU'n in tho prime of man
hood loft home, lovod one.i and all, and
marched away to death that toe Union
might be preserved and that wo of to
day might enjoy tho blessings of free
dom and prosperity.
Tho comrades who accompanied tho
fullen patriots and returned to tell the
stories of tho wars are now gray haired
men. Year by year the number ia
diminished ns the patriots drop from
the ranks hero and there and a few sea
sons heuco the Inst veteran will have
joined his comrades at the great review
and the work of decoration on Memorial
Day will be left to other hands. The
universal ocsftrvanco of Memorial Day
each year is a pleasing indication that
our heroes did not fight in vain. A
na'tion's reverence for its defendors is
one of the highest evidences of its
patriotism. May tho spirit that
prompted the heroeo of '70 and 'CI to
offer their Uvea tor their country never
grow cold. With each returning Bea
ton of buds and blossoms when all na
ture smiles anew in the garb of loveli
ness as we pay tribute to the memory
of the departed, let us tako anew 'the
pledge that the trust reposed in follow
ing generations oy tho sli;miering
patriots shall bo guarded by eternal
