"This administration," said A J.
Colborn at Harrisburg, "is satlsfactorj
only to those who hold ottlce under it,"
and the epigram pretty accurately
covers the discernible facta.
Take Nothing for Granted.
The tenor of Republican comment
throughout the state, as reflected in
the various vehicles of public opinion,
is hopeful and harmonious. It is the
general feeling that Republican success
is assured, not only in the state can
vass, but with reference, also, to the
congressional and local campaigns.
We are thankful that this la true. We
are rejoiced to see the party in the
main contented, self-reliant and full of
But it is well to remember that the
exemplary effects of merely a moder
ate victory in November would be next
to nothing; and that a moderate vic
tory, when an extraordinary one is
within easy reach, is often the price
which a party pays for feeling too con
fident and too secure. If the example
of Vermont, with its instructive elec
tion returns, is to be not lost upon the
Republicans of Pennsylvania after
their superb triumph last February,
there will need to be as vigorous, as
careful and as painstaking party effort
In the present canvass as If its results
were actually in doubt The leaving
undone of any honest duty which, if
done, would contribute to the success
of Republicanism at this juncture
would be not only a partisan error; it
would be Its possible consequences a
The extinction oi those heresies
which have, in less than two years of
legislative application, undone much
of the accumulated benefits of three
decades of unparalleled prosperity is a
duty that calls for honest and com
plete fulfilment. It is a dictate of
patriotism, and an Instinct, indeed, of
self-preservation. With reference to it
there is scarcely any room for divided
opinion or Indecisive effort. The duty
Is clear, palpable and Inevitable. It
awaits fulfilment and it gives no op
portunity for evasion. The call to in
dustrial Pennsylvania 1s . made .with
particular emphasis; and it Is the mis?
sion of those who hear it to neglect no
lit occasion to moke the state's re
sponse correspondingly distinct.
The morals of the Four Hundred
appear from the latest scandal to be
likewise a trifle exclusive.
The Free Wool Fallacy.
With but one dissenting vote, cast
by a Democrat, the Ohio Wool Grow
ers' association, in thirteenth annual
convention at Columbus, last Tuesday
adopted a protest against free wool
that is replete with significance. Bo
sharp and keen is it that we are per
suaded to republish It entire. "For
over seventy-eight years," it says,
"there have been
high tariff duties, mora or less protective,
noon wool. The Gorman law not only de
nies wool growers the benefit of a tariff
for revenue, but places wool on tba free
list, though not one citizen, by petition to
congress, asked it. Until President Cleve
land's free wool message of December,
1867, all political parties favored protec
tion for the wool industry. The price of
foreign wool imports is now so low that
without protective tariffs American wool
growers cannot successfully compete with
them. Free wool as a permanent policy
would substantially destroy the
American wool industry and in
' large measure annihilate the capi
tal invested therein. The threat of free
wool has reduced the value of onr 45,000,
000 sheep nearly 170,000,000, and reduced
the price of wool clip of 1894 more than
(30,000,000 below the normal under ade
quate protection. The Gorman law at
taok on agricultural interests is aggra
vated by the fact that the odious whisky
trust and the sugar trust and others are
amply provided fur and protection pro
fessedly it not aotually adequate Is given
to most of our manufacturing industries,
and free coal, Iron ore and other raw ma
terials. Free wool Is an infamous and
odious discrimination and conspiracy
against all onr agricultural industries.
As a permanent polioy it would drlvs
a million of wool growers from sheep hus
bandry into increased production of bay,
wheat, corn, oats, cotton and other pro
ducts, destroy our sheen, and reduce the
demand they would make for food and
thus add to our existing over-production
and low prices, the ruin of still furthsr
over-production. This wonld take from
all farmers a large measure of their just
income and render them unable to patron
ize merchants, grocers, mechanics schools,
and churches. All industrial and other
classes would be involved in common di
uster. Free wool is a blow to civilization
and progress. Immense importi of low
priced wools would supplant to a large ex
tent thu use of ootton aud thus bring dis
aster to the planters of the south. Iu 1893
the imports for consumption of the tbird
class wools were 133,11)7,641 pounds at a
valuation of 7.75 cents per pound.
Why is free wool thrust upon the coun
try? Not one of all tne keuators who votod
for the Gorman bill ventured to give any
reason in support of free wool. Their
silence is confession of its injustice, and
that it means rum. It is a conspiracy with
four purpose: (1) To add to existing over-
?iroduction of cereals, cotton aud other
arm products, and still further reduce
prices already ruinously low. (2) To
alienate wool growers from the pro
tective policy, and thus enlarge the
policy of free trade. (3) With
cheap foreign wool and protective du
ties on manufactures, to limit manufac
turing to the Eastern cities and New
Englaud states. (4) Its political purpose
Is to win to the Democratic-Gorman party
a few New England states, aud punish
the wool-growing states. The pretence of
cheaper clothing is false aud fraudulent
With the destruction of American Hocks
and with manufactures limited to a nar
row section, combinations aud trusts
would extort upon the people with a mo
nopoly of wool and woolen goods. The
government must have revenue. If not
erived from duties, the people will pay
in some other form. The wool tariff
yielded, in 1893,18,147,319. The Gorman
bill surrenders the wool tariff revenue,
but imposes five times greater burdens by
a tariff tax on sugar of $40,000,000 annu
ally. We indorse the dootrine announced by
the National grange that while protection
is accorded to any industry, it should also
be to wool. Full and adequate protection
for the wool industry would soon increase
our 45,000,000 sheep to a required 110,000,
000, furnishing 850,000,000 pounds of wool
annually all needed, and we wonld im
port none. This would save an annual ex
port of gold of 180,000,000. or more to buy
foreign wool from countries which take
substantially nothing from us iu return
but gold. It would keep our finances on
a solid basis. It would make such an in
creased demand for pasturage, hay, oats
and corn as to increase these products and
thus secure fair prices. It would enlarge
the resources of more than 30,000,000 of
the agricultural classes and thus by their
patronage to other classes, give prosperity
It has been proved that no foreign wool
is needed to mix with ours for success fu I
manufacture. What, then, shall small
wool growers dor The free-wool policy
cannot be reversed until after 1890. In
the meantime sheep cannot be made to
pay for capital Invested and labor iu pro
ducing wool. The true policy is: Fatton
the wethers and old ewes; sell them for
mutton; keep the breeding ewes aud be
ready to rapidly increase the flocks after
1890. Let all people who desire prosperity
for Americans rather than for foreigners
, vote for no candidate for congress who
does not favor protection equally to all
American industries, which by its aid, can
be made to furnish all needed supplies at
fair American prices. The free wool in
famy will soon be wiped out, never more
to return and the people, painfully ad
monished by,the rulu of the last two years,
will not soon demand again a change to
the policy which brought it on.
If protection is good for the interests
of a given industry, a given section or
a given party, it is good for the inter
ests of all the people. In singling out
the agricultural interests for special
attack, while their owucotton growers
and sugar planters came in for careful
consideration, the Democratic tariff
menders displayed the real animus of
their bogus tariff reform campaign,
aud offered to history another proof of
their utter unfitness to govern.
Candidate Singerly's newspaper
admits that "politics and ethics of a
very high order are not usually found
ou terms of Intimacy." Yet when
Senator Ingalls expressed the same sad
fact in better words, did not the Record

in deciding to make a personal tour

deuce of his superb earnestness and
willingness to endure. The discom
forts of such a tour and its exactions
are many, and in a state which has

ment. Magnificently endowed by na
ture to withstand fatigue, he is hap
pily possessed of a spirit which courts
hard work and thrives upon indefat
igable party service. He will make as
thorough a canvass as If the result
were surouded in grave uncertainty;
aud the plans now in mind content
plate the introduction of many speak
ers of national prominence to assist in
the battle. Governor McKinley, for
example, will speak at Philadelphia,
Pittsburg, and possibly Wilks-Barre
and Scranton. Senator Sherman, of
Ohio, has promised to deliver two ad
dresses, one at the state capital. Ex-
Speaker Tom Reed will be heard In
this campaign upon three occasions,
and several of the remaining national
Republican celebrities, Including such
superior spell-binders as Congressmen
Dolliver and Burrows and Senator
Henry Cabot Lodge, will introduce In
terest and novelty into the canvass.
It will be seen, therefore, that there
is no invitation to lukewarmness in
the example set by the head of the
ticket, and the model thus put in
evidence deserves to be borne in mind
by each of the various local committees.
With county and state committees and
the Republican State league all work
ing together under the inspiration of a
laudable rivalry each to surpass the
other in point of efficiency and en
thusiasm, there should be registered
at the polls of Pennsylvania on Nov.
0 a result which will be memorable.
The Issues at stake are worthy of this
high endeavor aud the men who rep
resent those Issues in the main are
worthy of them.

Such Men Are Scarce.
The Philadelphia Press in a well-
considered editorial upon the Repub
lican situation in' this county says:
"Since the nomination was made the
Democrats have been seeking to mag
nify the feeling engendered by the
preliminary canvass, but without the
least indication of success. Only by a
division of the Republicans could the
enemy have any hope of winniDg, and
it is not conceivable that any number
of the Republicans of Lackawanna are
going to assist the Democrats to a vic
tory in so important a matter as con
gressman in a year like this. If Mr.
Scrauton's competitor for the nomina
tion had been successful he would
have expected Mr. Scranton and his
friends to accept the result and give
the candidate a cordial support. Hav
ing been unsuccessful ho will no doubt
turn in for Mr. Scrauton with hearty
good will. There is no reason to
suppose that any other course will
be pursued. Under such circum
stances Republican success is beyond
doubt. It is not a question of electing
Mr. Scranton, but it is one of electing
a Republican member, one who can be
depended upon to act with the Repub
licans in the next house. That, Mr.
Scranton, whose party fidelity has
never been questioned, will do. For
that reason, if for no other, every Re
publican in the district.and eveiy man
of whatever party faith who is opposed
to Democratic hard times, will give
Mr. Scranton his support in preference
to aiding the election of a Democrat
aud the encouragement of further tar
iff agitation and business disturbance.
Upon that ground the Republicans of
Lackawanna will unite as Republicans
are united all over the country." The
man who sets private prejudices
against general prosperity is a public
enemy. Such men are scarce in Re
A. J. Colborn, jr., whose eloquent
sneech at Harrisburg is yet winning
praiseworthy mention, has already begun
to reap the consequences of sudden fame.
Each mail that comes nowadays deluges
him with requests for campaign dates.
One of the first to demand his assistance
was a friend of Mr. Colborn' father,
Chris Magoe, of Pittsburg. "We want
you to talk for us iu Allegheny," said Mr.
Magee, "and you can name your own
price." David Martin, of Philadelphia,
also wants to book Bcrsnton's favorite
campaign orator as one of his stellar polit
ical attractions, aud tho requests from
other Republican managers in various'parts
of the state are almost sufficient, if acceded
to, to occupy Mr. lolborn's time without
intermission from now until election.
Among the speakers at the Harrisburg
mass meeting Wednesday night was Rep
resentative Charles W. Stone, of Warren,
who has the reputation at Harrisburg aud
also at Washington of being one of the
ablest men in public life today. Mr. fctone
came fresh from the balls of the perfidy
and dishonor congress, where he has made
a brilliant record among the minority
members for his masterly exposition of
the currency question, bis elaboration of
legislation relating to immigration and bis
strong grasp upon other vital topics of the
times. His speech was souud, cogent and
convincing, and would make excellent
campaign literature. Mr. Stone, it is
quietly intimated, bas an eye on the
United States sonatorsbip; and if he were
to win it, this commonwealth would not
be the loser.

TO REVIVIFY THE LEAGUE.
The Republican State league vindicated
the wisdom of its members by selecting
for its president, Major Everett Warren, of
Lackawanna county. Major Warren had
loDg been a vice president of the organisa
tion and his promotion was a natural and
graceful recognition of what was due him
for his services to the league and to the
Republican party. His selection was also
in strict accord witn the position first
enunciated by the Times a year ago and
reiterated a few weeks ago that ths presi
dent of the league Bbould be a young Re
publican resident in a Democratic or
doubtful county who would give a great
part of bis time to the work ot the organ
ization and not make his position merely
an ornamental one and a convenience for
promoting Sonne personal political project.

THE WHEEL IN WAR.
The value which the blcyole will nave
s an adjunct to the American army
has been of late forcibly demonstrated.
General McCook had occasion recently
to telegraph from his station in Denver
to General Greely at Washington' "Your
wheeled greeting has rolled more than
two thousand miles over mountain, val
ley and plain through ten states, and
has ascended to a mile's altitude, cover
ing over on hundred days' march for
troops, and thus accomplishing in six
days one of the most notable feats on
record In transmitting information by
human pnwor alone over the greatest
space in the shortest time." Upon the
heels of this feat of the wheel,' Lieu
tenant J. L. Donovan has couvinced
the war department of the superior
swiftness and utility ot the bicycle for
the courier or scout service by covering
the 109 miles between Cheyenne and
Omaha in 9 hours aud 85 minutes. He
was heavily equipped, too, for this trip.
Now comes news of ths invention by E.
M. Highley, of Sonierswortn, N. H., of a
uuicycle, which gives promise of doubling
the speed ot the fastest bicycle. Uncle
Sam will undoubtedly emulate the exam
ple of the European nations in the estab
