That is not a bad idea of the editor
of the Cosmopolitan magazine la mov
ing the workshop of his employes to a
beautiful new home in the country,
where rents are cheap, air is pure and
room abundant. Neither is it a poor
dally notion of the Dutch storekeepers
of Capetown,described by Max O'Rell,
to take two hours off for dinner, while
the Yankee takes live minutes. As a
matter of fact, spreadeagleism aside,
our American civilization is not yet
The Voice of Maine.
, Iu interpreting yesterday's vote in
Maine it is well to remember that the
largest Republican majority cast in a
gubernatorial election in recent years
that when Blaine ran for president in
1884 was only 19,SG4 votes. This was
the high-water mark of Maine enthus
iasm or state Issues and i repre
sented all the subtle foirca of the
plumed knight's magnificent per
sonal magnetism, as well as the
state pride enlisted in his candid
acy. That in an off year this vote
should be equalled was hardly to have
been expected. Its replacement by a
plurality now thought to be in excess
of 25,000 is a striking proof of the over
whelming uprising of the plain people
against the mongrel iniquities of this
Democratic regime. . . ' .
The'figure that has invested the re
cent campaign in Maine with live per
sonal interest was naturally that of
Maine's second great son, brilliant
Tom Reed. He alone of all the candi
dates directly concerned In yesterday's
triumph had become a household fa
vorite wherever Republicanism is rel
ished and virility admired. Two years
ago Mr. Reed had a plurality of 1,077.
This is his tenth campaign, and by
virtue of his prominence it has been a
hard one. As usual, the Democracy
has sought to "layjhlm out." As
usual, they have failed. The differ
ence this time is that their present
failure assumes the proportions of a
national object lesson, and is surpassed
only by their more serious recent fail
ures in the realms of legislation. '
TJpon the whole, it is clearly evident
that Maine has fulfilled the expecta
tions of thd country. Pennsylvania
Boundeu'the keynote in February;
Vermont responds with her autumnal
echo and Maine brings on the equi
noctial storm of popular wrath which
expresses Itself with deafening cre
scendoes of Republican pluralities be
yond precedent in the history of our
politics. It is well.
Ocb interesting contemporary,
the Washington Post, grows very in
dignant because the Republicans of
New Hampshire accused the president
of "selling a foreign embassy" to Van
Alen "for $50,000." It thinks this
characterization is too blunt and too
undiplomatic. So long as it is substan
tially true, however, New Hampshire
Republicans we suspect can stand it.
An Obvious Moral.
At a cost of $5,000 a year the state of
Ohio has opened employment ex
changes in the cities of Cincinnati,
Cleveland, Columbus, Dayton and To
ledo. At these exchanges persons who
desire to employ men or women In any
kind of labor, skilled or unskilled, reg
ister their names with a statement of
what they want. Persons desiring em
ployment register their names and the
kind of work they wish to do. It is
stated in an official report upon the
subject that up to Jan. 1, 1893, when
the system had been two and a half
years In operation, a total of 81,464
persons had applied for work, and 02,
5G4 for "help." In 38,352 cases these
demands had been made to fit each
The Insufficiency of present methods
of communication between remuner
ative work and penniless work seekers,
is pathetically Instanced in the case of
the laborer in New York the other day
who despondently took his own life
because he failed to find employment,
while within a block It is said there was
acontractor looking for employes. It is
scarcely within the true province of
state government to expect the state to
perform the functions Involved In this
Ohio experiment; nevertheless, the
good accomplished goes far to justify
the sometimes distasteful means. It is
noteworthy that these employment
exchanges came into prominence at
about the same timo that a certain
coming free trade event cost its shadow
The moral is obvious.
The Tribune is pleased this morn
ing at its ability to present the first of
a series of letters from Miss Sadie E.
Kaiser, soprano of the Cambro-Ameri
can quartette, chronicling the safe ar
rival of Professor Haydn Evans and
party at Southampton and narrating,
In a chatty, readable. fashion, several
incidents of the pleasant outward voy
age on board the trim Yankee liner,
the "Berlin." Miss Kaiser makes no
pretensions to literary skill, being
content to rest her claims simply on a
magnificent voice; yet we think her
letter will compare favorubly with any
that is likely to be written concerning
this tour. With health, ability and
good humor to start with, the party's
progress iu the land of song will doubt
less be followed with keen interest by
its many friends at home; and, in this
direction, as in others, The Tribune
will, of course, be foremost in its pre
sentation of the news.
The Supreme Test.
First among the plunks in their re
cently adopted state platform the Dem
ocrats of Wisconsin, under the lead of
Senator Vilas, President Cleveland's
most consummate apologist and de
fender, placed this declaration: "The
present financial distress under which
the country has suffered and is still
suffering, is the logical and necessary
conseque nee of Republican class legis
lation and mismanagement." At a
monster mass meeting of Democrats,
held last Friday night In Atlanta,
Speaker Crisp prefaced the oratory of
the evening with this bid for sym
pathy: "When the FiHy-third con
gress met in August of last year it was
confronted with difficulties which
seemed almost insurmountable. Trade
was paralyzed, manufacturing had al
most ceased, labor was idle and con
fidencethe life and soul of commerce
was utterly destroyed. Insofar as
this deplorable condition was attrib
utable to legislation, the Republican
party was responsible." 1
It is evident, therefore, as General
Hastings predicted at Harrisburg.that
the Democratic managers, having noth
ing but failure, panic and widespread
ruin to show as the visible accompani
ments of Democratic restoration, will
perforce acknowledge the fact, but dis
claim the responsibility. The device
is an old one. It has been the resort
of poltroons ever since Adam, in the
Garden of Eden, sought to shirk the
burden of his disobedience by saying:
"The woman, she dli tempt me."
There has not been a time in the his
tory of Democracy iu this country
when It was not ready and willing to
blame the evil of its own blundering
upon somebody else.
We are willing, however, for the
sake of the argument, to let the Dem
ocrats have the benefit of all their false
claims. We will concede, for example,
that there was misery, trade paralysis
and lack of confidence . when the
Democracy came into control; and that
this condition, instead of being due to
a popular fear of the new administra
tion, was a legacy of Republican "mis
management." We will admit, if it
will sweeten Speaker Crisp's potion,
that the remarkable prosperity which
for thirty years had no fault to find
with the kind of control vouchsafed it
by the Republican majority, had been
systematically deceived and that it
only awakened to this deception at
about the time Democracy took bold;
how does this affect the present case?
In what essentials have the people
been benefitted by the change? . To
what degree are they satisfied with
the comparison of results?
"The Republican party," as Warner
Miller aptly said at a Republican
convention in Herkimer county, N. Y.,
the other day, " does not build upon
disasters; it does, not build upon mis
representations; it appeals to the great
intelligence of the people, aud it will
ask of them whether they are not bet
ter satisfied with the results which
were attained in this country during
the rule of the Republican party than
they have been during the rule of the
Democratic party." That is the su
preme test, the central and overshad
owing issue. Or, as General Hastings
has well voiced the same thought:
" Let the thoughtful men of the State
and the country who have in view the
great problems and the perilous periods
which were so bravely met aud mas
tered by the Republican party during
the past thirty years, consider the va
cillating and disastrous efforts of the
party now in power to cope with the
public questions of the last eighteen
months, and answer whether the Dem
ocratic party has proved its capacity
for safe independent action in this or
any other serious period in our coun
try's recent history, and whether their
proper place in government Is not that
of an objecting minority. If the peo
pie are satisfied with the year's work
at Washington they will vote for a
continuation of that kind of govern
mental policy. If they are not, they
will abide the time until they can
make an effective appeal to the free
man's tribunal, the American ballot

sents an investment of hundreds of
millions of dollars. Its inter state
commerce alone is worth more than
$50,000,000. It represents four fifths of
the taxable property of Louisiana, and
is the one means of livelihood for two
thirds of Louisiana's population. Its
protection, says the Washington Post,
"is not a question of doetrine or meta
physics it is one of existence." All
the more reasonable is it, therefore,
that an industry to which protection
is so very vital should be willing, when
cared for, to give other industries a
show. The policy ot hogism in poli
tics very often reacts.
One Thing at a Time.
"We must first," truly says the
Pittsburg Times, "knit up what has
been raveled out, before" we can take
new stitches. We must first bring
back prosperity to the country and the
other things will be added unto it.
The money question is included with
in the tariff, for one year of southern
experimenting with the tariff has
made the money question so simple
thut children can understand it, and
so bitter that few would not escape it
if they could. The only money ques
tion today, with millions who were
prosperous when Grover Cleveland
was elected, Is: Where can I Dud the
money for tomorrow's breakfast? This
question must be answered before any
other money question is taken up. It
is a waste of words to discuss the cir
culation per capita, so long as those
who need it most cannot get their
share of it. An enlargement of the
currency gives uo help to the man
without a chance to earn some of it."
The currency question is really not
an issue in Pennsylvania, and need
not receive a large share of attention.
There is no uncertainty as to the posi
tion of Republicans with reference to
free and unlimited silver coinage.
They are unalterably opposed to it, not
out of any hostility toward silver as a
money metal but because they believe
it would jeopard the soundness of the
national currency and depreciate in
stead of increase values. With industry
crippled by ignorant tariff agitation
and commerce not yet recovering from
the shock of Democratic misrule, it is
a poor time to agitate for further ex
periments along Populistic lines. First,
let us, as the Times saysi, "knit up
what has been raveled out" before we
go on to the taking of new stitches of
doubtful value to the country at large,
This deservedly complimentary notice
was mada by the Diocesan Record of Sat
urduy concerning the candiditcy of a pop
ular young Republican ot Olyphaot: "C.
P. O'il alley, ot the office ot Willard,
Warren and Knapp, this city, received a
well-merited honor Wednesday at the
State Republican convention, held in Ear
risburg. Althongh there are a number of
more pretentious members of the conven
tion who sought the dignity, Mr. O'AIalley
received an almost unanimous vote as
delegate to the meeting ot National League
of Republican clubs to be held in Cleveland,
Ohio, nest year. He is in the field for
political honors and is having much suc
cess. At the convention of the Republicans"
oi the fourth LtfgiBinyve aistrict or Penn
sylvania next week he is almost certain of
being nominated, and is going Into the
fight to win. Air. O'Malley has lately be
gan the practice ot law and stands in the
front rank of the bright and progressive
young Irish-Americans in the valley. His
future is bright, whether he labors in the
field or politics or that of law. "
This is how Candidate Slogerly deludes
himself through the political column of
his superior newspaper: "The thorough
stamping of the state proposed by the Re
publicans, the systematic six-weeks tour
of dally speechmaking mapped oat tor
General Hastings and his oratorical trav
eling companions, and the determination
of the Republican campaign managers to
proceed as cautiously as if Pennsylvania
were regarded bi a doubtful state, are
considered strong evidences that the high
tariff party expects to confront a united
Democracy, and that the effect upon Nov
ember's election of the recent congres
sional progress toward tariff reform is
generally treated as an unknown quantity.
No time for General Hastings' appear
ance before a Philadelphia audience bus
yet been appointed, but it will probably
be in the last week of October. In ar
ranging the general's itinerary State
Chairman Uilkeson had to be strictly
guided by railroad timetables, becaute in
every instance the gubernatorial nominee
will travel on a regular train, and will not
at any time enjoy the luxury of a private
or speoiai car."
The able Washington correspondents,
pending the reasembling ot congress, are
sometimes severely cramped for topics.
This appears to have been true last Satur
day, when a number of tbem revived the
Cameron presidential boom, alleging that
it had the powerful financial backing of
Senator John P. Jones, of Nevada, who
has juBt bolted the Republican party out
of his surprising fondness for free silver.
In this connection it may not be ancient
history to allude to the bitter undertone
of criticism heard on all sides at Harris
bcrg last week in consequence of the at
tempt to foist Senator Cameron's person
ality en the State league by means of a
portrait bridge. Many persons refused to
weir this badge and some compromised by
turning Cameron's "picture toward the
wall." The attempted use of the league as
an auxiliary to this particular candidate's
ambitions was commended . by no one aud
roundly condemned by many.
One of the cleanest records made in the
laht legislature was that made by J. Craw
ford Harvey, of the Second Luzerne dis
trict. Mr. Hnrvey, for a first termer, won
an enviable reputation for promptness
and efficiency in committee work, and was
also hitrhly popular with the better mem
bers, old and young. The rank he occupied
in the business of legislation is best shown
in the important committee memberships
which were intrusted to him. He was
prominent in the deliberations of the com
mittee on agriculture, took a foremost part
in the work of the committees on corpora
tions and municipal corporations, and as
member on the library committee had
much to do with the marked Improvement
lately made in that valuable department.
The people of the Second district will maki
no mistake in returning Representative
Harvey by an increased majority to the
field where his experience will become a
valuable factor in future state legislation.
Todoy or tomorrow Fred W, Fleitz, the
new corresponding secretary of the Re
publican State league, will go to Philadel
phia to take an inventory of the league
property in the old headquarters, prepara
tory to its removal, to Scran ton. It is
probable that this property will be placed
in the rooms of the Central Republican
club on Washington avenue, which will
be the new state headquarters.
The failure of the Wilkes-Barre contin-
?ent to attend the state league conven
ion at Harrisburg, last week, has elicited
some curiosity. They may . possibly have
mistaken the date.
Senator Boies Penrose, of Philadelpbi,is
noted at Harrisburg as being one of the few
really able men who can combine serious
and earnest legislative work with the
often engrossing task of maintaining a
bang-up social establishment. H Is cham
bers were models of elegant hospitality,
and his senate bills, in the main, models of
sound legislation. Such a rare blend ex

NO DEFENSE AT ALL. .
Potttville ilinert' Journal
The regulation free trade defense ot the
proposition to remove the duty on bitumi
nous coal is that anthracite is practically
a monopoly that can protect itself, and
that the removal of the doty on bitumi
nous could not affect it. It is hardly ne
cessary to say to the workingmea of the
country that this is not a defense. The
conclusion that free bituminous coal
would not affect the anthracite trade is
based upon the assumption that the latter
is a domettio fuel altogether and that bitu
minous coal cannot be used as a substitute
for it Everybody who knows anything
about the trade knows that where anthra
cite is used for manufacturing purpoies bi
tuminous can also be used, and they know
alio that free bituminous would drive
anthracite from the Atlantic seaboard
markets and largely reduce the consump
tion of the latter. The manifest purpose
of the free coal clause in the schedule was
to open the markets ot the United States
to Nova Scotia coal, in the interest of the
New York syndicate of capitalists and to
the) detriment of the miners of both
bituminous and anthracite. The move
ment, if successful, would have
seriously injured the anthracite cool
trade, which la now in anything but a
healthy state. No argument is required to
Srove this proposition and no amount of
eclaration or special pleading will con
vince the public to the contrary. Bitum
inous coal, though unfit for nee in a do
mestic way, can be substituted for an
thracite, in the mills and manufacturing
establishments ot the east, and to that ex
tent at least it would injure the now dull
CORNELL'S PRESIDENT TALKS.
From a Recent Intetview,
President Sohurman, of Cornell, recently
returned from a vacation visit to England,
where he carefully observed political con
ditions and tendencies. He says that the
growing power ot democracy has made
parliament an assembly of very ordinary
men; the average ability in the best of our
state legislatures is today as high as that
of the house ot commons. "1 do not
think," he says, "that there is a man in
the English parliament that can compare
with Senator Shnrman,or Wilson or Reed."
President Scburman thinks that American
political institutions are the best in the
world, and that foreigners are becoming
more and more disposed to think the same
way. "England is actually looking to us
as an example, while fifteen years ago she
would have thought such an attitude
riduculous. With the growth of democ
racy tbey fear the omnipotent power of
parliament and look with envy upon our
uational and state constitutions, which re
strict the powers of our state legislative
bodies." But while the American political
institutions are the best in the world,
American administration is almost the

remain with uncovered heads during the

the negro band played the old southern
