Judoe Merrifield, we understand,
vows be "would stand up for protec
tion until the lant dog was bung."
This is queer talk for a Democrat these
days. But it isn't half so queer as his
indorsement of the Chicago platform,
which declared protection a robbery, a
fraud and a violation of the constitu
tion. Mr. Hines of Luzerne.
Mr. Hines informs a Philadelphia
reporter that be "has voted square"
upon every measu re in congress i n which
liis constituents have a direct interest.
Just what he meant by this expres
sion would not be known had be not
kindly offered this clue: "I supported
, ' the Wilson tariff bill and voted for the
repeal of the Sherman free silver law,
and I believe that I have given a satis
factory return in the way of a record of
which I am certainly not ashamed. I
bave been a strong and unalterable sup
porter of President Cleveland, and all
this agitation and talk of my district
being In doubt has had no effect upon
those who bave followed up what I
bave done during the past session."
Mr. Hines supported the Wilson bill,
it Ib true, after first having vigorously
denounced It. He also voted In favor
of silver repeal, and may be expected,
according to precedent, to go out on
the stump and favor free coinage. It
1s also not news that Mr. Hines is "not
ashamed" of the record of William H.
Hines, We do not understand that the
contrary has been seriously asserted;
or that Republicans are holding out
for it. Certainly, Mr. Hines, the citi
zen, is satisfied with Mr. Hines, the
congressman. To go all the way to
Philadelphia In order to spread such
intelligence as this before an expectant
people was almost superfluous.
The point at issue is that the district
is ashamed of Hines. He has made it,
for two years, a butt of ridicule and a
theme of jest The paragraphers bave
poked fun at it for sending such an in
dividual to congress, and the wits have
held high carnival at the little man's
expense. He has betrayed its indus
trial interests, sold out the welfare of
bis constituents for a measly mess of
administration patronage, and he will
face such a condition In November as
will upset all his sweet William theo
rle about the coming beatitude of
"The party that seeks to carry the
people back Into the protective wilder
ness," boldly says Mr. Sicgerly, "must
accept all the consequences of its
folly." If Brother gingerly will keep
an eye on , the November returns, he
will see a certain party accept these
consequences and not make a wry face
over them, either.
New York Needs a Quay.
There is doubtless a certain amount
of truth in the contention of various
New York contemporaries that the
spirited contest in progress for the
Republican gubernatorial nomination
in that state is merely an evidence of
the return of party confidence; and not
an Indication of the growth of faction
lalism. The honor of leading the ticket
which la to reclaim the ring-besotted
Empire state from the clutches of Tam
i many ism is not a slight one, and it
.may well tempt the ambitions of a
z goodly number of distinguished Repub
licans. But while this may be freely
conceded, it yet remains true that the
party's greatest danger in that state
lies in its liability to overestimate the
Importance of these Individual ambi
tions. The history of Republicanism in
N.ew York state Is a history, for the
most part, of disorganization. Every
county has its cliques and clans, readier
by far to expend their energies in the
'lifting of each other's scalps, than to
concentrate their warfare on the united
enemy. With all iU faults, Tammany
teaches one valuable lesson. It teaches
the strength of organized sffort. Call
its coheslveness by any name you will,
it is a union that wins victories at the
polls and puts to serious disadvantage
the broken lines of the faction-ridden
Republicans of the state. The wrang
ling chieftains of New York Republi
canism have too long kept the masses of
the party subservient to their personal
whims. Who is Piatt or Hiscock or
Miller or any of the rest of them that
he should make the advancement of
the entir.t party secondary to the pro
motion of his personal aims? In what
other state would such a chaotic politi
cal condition be so patiently tolerated?
New York Republicans need a new
leader and a new deal. They need a
state organization which shall have
existence in fact as well as in name.
They need an organizer who shall be
willing to sluk personal jealousies iu
the larger and nobler work of putting
the necessary party machinery into
effective working order. It is custo
mary umoug certain New York Re
publicans to refer in slighting terms to
the state organization In Pennsylvania;
but if New York had a politician
within its borders equal in sagacity to
Matthew Stanley Quay, the country
would not now witness the spectacle
of a dozen or more would-be leaders en
gaged iu a frantic effort to commit po
litical hari-kari at the whole party's
The present year is a good time for
new departures. The Republicanism
that is on the rapid increase just now
is not the Republicanism of place,
power and pelf, but the Republicanism
of principle. It cares little or nothing
for fuctions and for the leaders of fac
tions; but it will care much for those
men of prominence within its ranks
who shall evince a true appreciation of
manly discipline and give proper heed
to the pre-eminent importance of liar
monlous and aggressive party progress.
Representative Boutelle's ma
jority is the largest ever cast in a Maine
congress district; and its size is a
wholesome tribute to the unpopularity
of the Cleveland Gresham Spreckels
policy of Infamy regarding Hawaii,
Unfit to Govern.
Published at the national capital
where It has every facility for securing
prompt and accurate information as to
men and parties, the Washington Post
has become, with the addition of wise
editing, one of the strongest organs of
popular opinion In the United States.
At times it has leaned toward the De
mocracy and atjtimes ithos appeared to
evince a kind of cynical delight In giv
ing the Republican party a shade the
worst of it. But in this crisis of national
depression it has awakened to the cold
truth of Democratic worthlessness and
its acknowledgment of this discovery is
significant at this time. We quote
from its issue of Wednesday last:
"When the Democratic party made
its first cowardly dicker with Populism
by Incorporating the income tax in its
scheme of government, the Post ex
pressed the opinion that it had forfei ted
thereBpect and confidence of intelli
gent men. When the house leaders
announced their purpose of destroying
and crippling American industries iu
pursuit of a crazy chimera of economic
reform, the Post branded them as un
fit for leadership. When, after the
victory achieved for common sense and
patriotism and national prosperity by
the courage of a few Democratic sena
tors, Mr. Wilson proclaimed amidst
uproarious applause that he intended
to perpetuate the agitation of his fan
tastic and hysterical philosophy, the
Post prophesied that the American
people would repudiate a party capable
of such insensate mischief and folly.
And when the news from Maine came
in on Monday night, the Post's com
ment on the figures was but the logical
corollary of these antecedent proposi
tions aud demonstrations.
"The country is tired of unrest and
agitation and suspense. Our industries
have been prostrate for more than two
years. Commerce has languished, trade
and manufactures have reached their
lowest ebb, hundreds of thousands of
our people have been reduced to want,
the land has fainted in the shadow of
a great calamity. The people need a
new dispensation, they need peace, se
curity and confidence, they need a re
sumption of industrial activity, and
emancipation from the fetters of de
spair. And if the Democratic leaders
of the house propose, as they have said,
to come back here next winter to re
new the strife and turmoil from which
we have just emerged and to suspend
material progress while they indulge
in agitating controversy, why then the
people will achieve their own salvation
by snatching power from hands so
shamefully Incapable of using it bene
ficently. "We have desired, and still desire,
the success of the incumbent adminis
tration. We should be glad to see the
Democratic party win undying glory
by making the country prosperous and
happy. That party is In power at last
after thirty years of exile, nnd it is, for
the time being, the only source of reme
dial and beneficent legislation. We
have hoped, and we still hope, that it
will rise to the measure of the splendid
opportunity. But no legislation is
preferable to bad and improvident leg
islation; the defeat of the Democratic
party is preferable to ruin pf the Amer
ican people. And if the leaders are
bent on perpetuating the suspense and
the tribulation of the post two yearsi
we shall contemplate its retirement
with a resignation too complete for
This is pretty nearly the exact opin
ion of every American gifted with the
power of thinking and reasoning. It
reaches the heart of the general belief
concerning the modern Democracy;
the belief that however lnocuous that
party may he when divested of power,
it no sooner gets its hand upon the leg
islative throttle than its inherent' in
capacity gathers to a focus of furious
delusion in which it whistles madly
for "down brakes" on American prog
ress. The score made by the Pennsyl
vania team at the New Jersey shoot
ing match at Sea Girt suggests to a
facetious paragrapher that they ."come
home and go to practicing shooting
craps." The witticism is clever, but
it is also unjust. The Pennsylvania
team, barring a slight attack of stage
fright duriug the inter-state match,
really did excellent work. The fact
that it won the Hilton trophy, and
lost the inter-state trophy by the nar
rowest kind of a fluke, which even yet
the two marksmen responsible for it
cannot explain, shows that it was in
conspicuous evidence, notwithstand
ing that the range was new, while to
mauy of the other teams it was a
familiar story. We do not say this in
an apologetic strain, but in simple
justice to the commonwealth's repre
sentatives at Sea Girt. The Pennsyl
vania rifle team is not in need of
apologies. It is fully able to hold up
its end under equal conditions with
any similar team in the country. It
has the men, the money and the eye
sight to do this; all it wants is the
The September number of tlio Co mo
pohtun in igazinn contains the Hist of a
srif9 nf very intcritinir pip-r entitled
"The Au.obiornpriy of a President," Their
nutluir is the famous Washington corre
spondent. T. C. Crawford, who has lately
il-'Vt'lo ed marked force and originality in
literature. No student of politics-should
fail to read this mythical autobiography.
It is no secret that the "pre-ldenf in
quostlou is Grover Cleveland. Apropos,
"Holland" says: "When the manuscript
was submitted to Brinbea Walker he wtm
nuiaz.-d at Suuie portions of it, astonished
thuta writer should bare dared to let bis
imiiKination go so far iu dt-pictiug the ut
ter nnfaiuiliurity of the presidential can
didate with national affairs us this writer
did, and ho sent for Mr. Crawfoi d, saying
to him that it would be necessary to strike
those portions out, since they seemed to
be so unreal, so impossible as to destroy
the effect of tin story. 'Nobody will ever
believe that it It possible for a man to do
or say such things as these wbo is es
temed worthy of a presidential nomina
tion,' Mr. Walker raid. Tho author burst
out laughing and then said: 'Whether it
heemB impossible or not to the public, what
I bave described in '.hose paragraphs is an
exact reproduction of a conversation and
of auexperi nee which I had with Mr.
Cleveland while be was a candidate for
the presidency. It is realism, absolute
and complete, and it is true.' Yet, if Mr.
Cleveland's name was given instead of
that of the mythical president who Is de
scribed, the description would be regarded
by the worshippers of Mr. Cleveland as an
ill-natured and scandalous misrepresenta
tion." The returns of the Republican primaries
held throughout Kings county Tuesday
night show that the Piatt men have car
ried everything. There is no louger any
doubt that Mr. Morton will receive the
support of the Kings county delegates.
At least fourteen of the eighteen Assem
bly districts of Kings county will go to
the convention to support Mr. Piatt's
nominee. The other four districts are
not anti-Platt, bnt are looked upon by the
leaders as doubtful. Mr. Piatt is talking
for publication. He says: "I don't pre
tend to be a prophet, but I know a little
about politics and something about pub
lic men, and I will venture just this one
prediction right here, and you can put it
down now, namely, that when Mr. Depew
reaches New York be will promptly de
clare himself in favor of Mr. Morton's
nomination and will tender him his heart
felt support. Mr. Depew is not in the
habit of saying one thing and meaning an
other. This is no new question with him.
It has been thoroughly discussed, care
fully considered and positively decided
long ago. Mr. Morton will be nominated
on the first ballot, and our ticket will
Bweep New York as the Republicans bave
just swept Vermont aud Maine. This is a
General Harrison says, upon bis return
to Indianapolis from bis visit to New Jer
sey: "From what X conld see and hear our
party will carry New Jersey this year and
will elect a Republican to tbe United
States senate. There is much dissatisfac
tion with tbe Dsmocratic record, and Mr.
Wilson, I believe has alienated bis district
from Democratic beliefs, I look forward
to the electiou thereof Mr. Dayton, who
la a Btroug and brilliant man and will rep
resent the district with credit. I fonnd
the Republicans of West Virginia highly
enthusiastic aud there was a pronounced
oppoaitiofi to the tariff hill adopted by the
present congress. The, miners do not take
at all kindly to it." .Mr. Harrison was
asked if Mr. Elkins had been a candidate
for the congressional nomination against
Mr Wilson, and said that he thought Mr.
Elkins' ambition was to go to the United
Slates senate In case the Republicans
should control the legislature. "Upon ray
return here I find it stated that the great
est danger to the Democratie party at
present is over-confidence. If the party
is suffering nothing but over-confidence it
it in a very healthy state, I am sure. Dur
iug my eastern trip I did not Uud the over
confidence at all manifest."
According to the Pres,'the board of di
rectors of tho Harnty Democratic party
have decided to give a reception to Mr.
Smgerly and his colleagues on the Demo
cratic ticket at the Academy of Musio in
Philadelphia ou Sopt. 2'J. It is probable,
also, that toe nominees will on the same
occasion be formally notified of the mel
ancholy fute that will await them on elec
tion day in November. Governor Pattiton
andhis staff are expected to be present at
the reception and a number of Kentlemsn
from Washington will' be invited to come.
TbH Union Republican clou, of Philadel
phia bas decided to offset this move by
tendering reception to General Hastingx
and bis colleagues on tho state ticket and
to the candidates on the county tlckmt.
Prominent Republicans from the city and
slate will probably be invited to me-t the
candidate on this occasion. The officers
