It is well to remember, in the
words of W. D. Owen, ltepublican can
didate for secretary of state in Indiana,
that "no party by whose system of gov
ernment sugar goes up U centra pound
and wheat declines to 40 cents per
bushel can hope to be returned to
Warren as League President.
The cordial and unanimous selection
at Harrisburg, yesterday, of Vice Pres
ident Everett Warren, of this city, for
president of the Statu League of lie
publican clubs, in succession to Repre.
sentative John B. Itobinson, was a
compliment worthily bestowed. It
flatters Scranton; it rewards its recipi
ent for good and steady service in the
league ranks; and, most of all, It Is the
token of what we believe will be a new
and happy era in the history of the
Asked his opinion of the State league
and its work, Major Warren recently
Bald: "It can be made an admirable
auxiliary in the education of the
younger voters in ltepublican prin
ciples; but the league should remain
within its proper province and not
permit itself to be used as the nursery
for any man's personal ambitions. I do
not mean by this that the ltepublican
who is earnest and etlicient in league
work should necessarily be debarred
from hope of party preferment. But I
regard it as a false notion that the league
should be restricted In its scope to the
campaign necessities of any man or
number of men who would like to use
the league merely as a means to the
attainment of their own ends. My
idea of loyalty is so strong that, rather
than be the means of crippling the use
fulness of this splendid organization' of
the aggressive young ltepublican ism of
our commonwealth, I would willingly
forego any political aspirations of my
own which might clash with the
league's best interests; and I think this
should be the spirit throughout."
This, pithily expressed, is President
Warren's platform; and backed by his
earnest and aggressive personality, it
ought to mean much la league circles.
The danger of the league lies in the
fear that it may not become practical.
The young blood of the Republican
party In this commonwealth is in no
danger of failing with respect to en
thusiasm; but enthusiasm without ex
perience, without organization, with
out system, purpose aud discretion, is
of minor value. If hard work, clear
aim and the faculty which inspires
others to better achievement can im
prove the every-day usefulness of the
State league and make It a more val
uable auxiliary than before, In the bat
tles of principle which are to be fought
under the banner of the Republican
party, President Warren will bring
these qualifications to his new position
of trust; and Republicanism every
where will be, by that much, the
The Washington Post, during the
Pythian encampment at the capital,
printed the best souvenir issues we
have ever seen but, then, the Post has
iaiieu bo deeply Into the habit of ex
celling that we dare say it cannot stop.
The Wane of Summer.
The Individual who has not con
sulted the almanac with regularity can
scarcely realize that the summer of
1894 has passed and that autumnal
days are upon us. It is seldom in the
recollection of the oldest inhabitant
that the waning of summer has been
marked by the serenity of the present
Through June, July and August the
sun has shone In undlmmed splendor;
the temperature has been high and
higher, never, as It Is wont in ordinary
summers, dropping suddenly down to
a point suggestive of rheumatism and
winter garments. Throughout the
past month there has been no sugges
tion of the chilling blasts of Novem
ber save in the mournful song of the
cricket at nightfall. Early twilights
have come and vegetation has long
since lost its springtime freshness, yet
the smoky haze that softens the rays
of noontide sunlight alone betokens
the nearness of autumn.
The past has indeed been a golden
summer and it merges into the au
tumnal season with the calmness and
grace of the Ideal hurvest moon that
rises majestioally in the eastern skies,
bathing the hilltops with mellow light
Anxious members of the local De
mocracy who had hoped for an exhibi
tion of wrath at Tuesday's convention
and expected to find the streets alive
with bolters yesterday have been
grievously disappointed. Republicans
of Lackawanna county have one ob
ject in view this fall aud that is the
planting of Democracy so deep in hard
pan that it will never again take root.
Any little differences that may exist
within the lines of Republicanism will
not be adjusted in a manner that M ill
benefit the enemy this year. Patriotic
voters have other business on hand.
Another Object Lesson.
Whatever may be the trutli or exag
geration of the reports to the effect that
the citizen soldiery of Pennsylvania
was insufficiently supplied with
rations, both in quality and quantity,
during the recent Gettysburg encamp
ment, the statement suggests addition
al proof of the superiority und discip
line of our National guard, considered
in connection with divers other circum
stances which tended to make the
soldiers' outing anything but a bed of
During the entire week the com
missary department made a miserable
failure, the transportation delays were
tedious aud exasperating, dust and
heat greeted the men upon their ar
rlvul, mud aud grime afterward ap
peared, aud during it all, these soldiers
who had had little of campaigning
wereexpected to thrive upon rations fa1'
below the standard furnished to Uncle
Sam's regulars. That the hospitals
were not overcrowded, that the men
were not lax and sullen, and that they
did not fail to maintain theirhigh per
centage as a militia is certainly not
the fault of attending circum
stances. Their entire experience in
camp was simply a practical con
firmation of the superiority claimed
for Peunslyvania's guardsmen over
any citizen soldiery organization in
tills country and possibly anywhere.
While, primarily, the periodical en
campments of the National guard are
to give the soldiers practical lessons in
the formations aud evolutions which
can only be undertaken on a small
scale in home quarters, the executive
stall" expects that the men will pre
pare for and realize a reasonable pro
portion of fun. During the massing
of the troops at Gettysburg men un
accustomed to hardships went through
a mill of bad food, bad weather and
practical drilling with credit to them
selves aud with honor to theirstatejiand
clinched more securely the reputation
they enjoy for everything good im
plied in the word "soldier."
Althoughjthe claim of the superiority
of Pennsylvania's National guard was
presented with faith and seriousness a
number of years ago, the authorities
of other states shrouded their accept
ance of it by restriction to the hard
service endured by our boys at Home
stead. People at large believed Penn
sylvania possessed a militia of high
grade, but they rather liked to believe
that the reputation was acquired
through "unexpected but fairly effi
cient service at Homestead." After
the recent encampment, surrounded
by a halo of infelicitous features, the
medicine must be swallowed and the
corn acknowledged. Official, local
and general reports of that week's ex
perience of mud, parching dust and
nightmare provender puts another
nail in the assertion that Pennsylva
nia's soldiers are soldiers; that they
are unequaled in their class and that
these two facts are important in their
scope aud significance.
In perusing dispatches from the
scene of the Korean war it is not diffi
cult to determine which side frames
the reports. In fact the accounts are
so directly at variance that many
readeis are beginning to suspect that
the battles between the Chinese aud
Japs are fought entirely on paper.
Hero of the Fires.
Since the Johnstown flood no calam
ity in tills country has carried with it
the horrors that could equal the scenes
during the terrible forest llres of Min
nesota. The condition of the unfortu
nate victims of the conflagration sur
rounded by clouds of flame from which
there was no escape, is something
that can scarcely be realized.
More merciless aud sudden than
black death the sea of fire
burst upon the helpless people, giving
no time for preparation for the inevit
able doom that awaited them. It will
probably be days yet ere the full horror
the disaster will be known. Relief
parties aud burial trains And new vie
tims almost hourly, and the death list
is swelling at each additional report.
Like other calamities of a terrible
nature, the Minnesota horror has de
veloped the hero. In marked contrast
with the fiendish ghouls who have al
ready been discovered roaming over
the devastated region, robbing the
dead of the few trinkets that remained
about their charred bodies, is the hero
Ism of Engineer Best, who ran his
train into a burning village, aud after
taking on a number of fleeing people
backed the cars to a place of safety
while the flames of the burning cab on
his engine blistered his bands and face.
No hero of ancient or modern times is
more worthy of a memorial statue than
this brave man who fell fainting at
the end of the race after rescuing a
number of helpless people from a hor
rible death. Such acts as these afford
a measure of consolation in demon
strating that true heroism still exists
in the land.
Dispatches from Blueflelds would
seem to indicate that the festive Ameri
can and British residents of tropical
Nicaragua need a little correction from
home governments. In this, as Well
as other countries of its class, the white
settlers are altogether too free to mix
into politics. They are prone to take
sides with this or that petty aspirant
for political honors, and when their
heads are In danger, hurriedly rush to
the ships that guard their country's in
terests in the foreign ports and demand
protection. There is too much of this
nonsense going on in countries ruled
by little monarchs or cbiefs,aud it seems
about time that these ambitious poli
ticians who are constantly drawing
United States authorities into trouble
by meddling with the affairs of the
countries in which they are temporarily
residing, should be made to understand
that If they must mix in all'airs of state
it will be safer for them to return to
this country where ward politics offer
ample opportunity for a display of
statesmanship of that order, without
involving half so much trouble.
In his speech at Peru last week, for
mally Initiating the Indiana campaign,
Hon. W. D. Owen elucidated one point
In this "tariff reform" campaign that
is frequently overlooked. "Loadaship
with freight at Liverpool," said he,
"bring the vessel to New York, and
when you have paid for the freightage
unload that vessel, transfer that cargo
of products to a train of a cars and have
the railroad carry it into the Interior of
the country as far as the amount you
paid for the ocean freight will carry it.
How far do you suppose it will take It?
About sixty miles. England is sixty
miles from the United States. Wages
in Englaud, on the average, are 07 per
cent, cheaper than in this country. If
the purposes of Wilson and Cleveland
shall be carried out and the Protective
tariff barriers torn down, how lougwill
we be able to produce goods against the
country that pays G7 per cent, less
wages than we do?" It is well to bear
this pertinent question in mind.
Managers op county fair enter
prises are not making much noise this
season. The county fair is evidently
losing its grip upon the average tiller
of the soil, who is beginning to realize
that there is not much in modern fairs
for any one save the fakir.
There is moist suggestlveness in
the statement that the price of milk
has been increased on account of the
scarcity of water about the country.
Latest advices announce that the

DEMOCRACY'S FIRST ACT.
Hon. H". D. Uun,at Peru, Ind.
Vbeu th Wilson letter was written,
men said we have anotbor GeneralJack
Bon ia the presidential chair. Mr. Cleve
land will never sign that bill after baying
assailed it ai he has. Had "Old Hickory"
been in the white house he would have
met the messenger from tne senate bear
ing the bill on the front portico, written
across its back "veto," Isaiil good-bye to
the messenger with the tip of his boot and
ordered him to report to his recreant mas
ters. In letting the bill become a law
without his signature Mr. Cleveland felt
the pressure of public condemnation, and
wrote a letter of confession aud avoidance
to General Catch in t'. He again stigma
tized the bill as the "communism of pelf."
But when be had written that letter on
Monday night he went to bed, when only
one word from him could have saved the
country. He was tired and went to bed.
and when the clock struck twelve and he
was slumbering in the arms of official in
difference, the "communism of pelf,' took
its seat in the presidential chair, and the
first recorded act in the drama of Demo
cratic reform was "perfidy and dishonor."
NOT DUE TO ACCIOENT.
F.x-Speaker ThomatB Seed.
Men begin to see now that the prosper
ity of thl country was not a matter of
course, a thing which happened of itself,
but has been the result of sensible mea
sures, of a sound system and a wise fore
cast. However short the Republican party
may have come of perfection, it governed,
on the whole, wisely and well, and we
shall soon see its like again.
ITS CHARACTER GONE.
Ex-Speaker Thomat B. Reed.
Such misunderstandings as these be
tween tbo president and senate, if Repub
lican, would have caused a sensation as of
burned woolen among the people; but the
Democracy has limitations as to morality
very much enlarged. That party seems
to realize what (ieueral Butler said in jest,
that "Nobody is truly unassailable until
his character is gone."
