Election Time, Nov. 0. 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 perfect. 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 other. 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 before. 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 box." The BtmAR irrnwingr industrv rentv. 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, POLITICAL NOTES. 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." t 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. s 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 plains why Penrose is coming man la Philadelphia politics. All roods now lead to Atlantic City. Quay is there. No donbt you have heard from Reed, of Maine. 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 trade. 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 worst. A NUN I Joteph P. Burnt in the Witket-Barrt Record. It is remarkable to observe with what reverence Englishmen doff their hats, and remain with uncovered heads during the playing or singing of their national an them "God Save the Queen," even though played by an American band, which to Americans has other words. And when the negro band played the old southern melody "Dixie," the Briton sings "On the Strand." Isn't It rather confusing and annoying that we Ameriaans can lay claim to very few national airs as orig inal! Something should be done to change this order of things. Give ns an Ameri can tune to the words of "My Country 'Tis of Thee." The words are brim full of patriotism. Let the Englishmen have their queen and their tone, bit give us a melody more inspiring, suitable to the grand theme. Just reosived a clot new lint of SILB SHADES in ohoict oolors and styles.
