Is thuke any reason to believe that
a judicial candidate whom the people
didn't want last year is now preferred
by them to one who li:s iriven them
ten years of honorable and illustrious
service, and whose name is a familiar
one throughout the enlire state?
For Clerk of the Courts.
John II. Thomas, clerk of the courts,
hns been properly designated a true
servant of tho people. Like many
other well-known residents of Lacka
wanna county'he has worked his way to
prominence from modest circumstances
that bordered on obscurity. Left an
orphan at an early age, he labored
manfully for the support of a widowed
mother, climbing up the ladder of suc
cess step by step until he is today one
of the best known and popular of
Lackawanna county's officials. Mr.
Tliomaswas boru in Carbondale and
has been identified with polities in
that thriving city for many years and
lias ever been found on the side of
true Republicanism, having performed
signal service for the party of protec
tion and prosperity.
During his career in office in Scran,
ton, Mr. Thomas has made many new
friends by his courteous treatment to
visitors and uniform politeness. The
affairs of the office of clerk of the
courts have never been more accur
ately conducted than under the ad
ministration of Clerk Thomas and Ills
able assistants. The candidacy of Mr.
Thomas received the hearty indorse
ment of the Republican county con
vention at the last meeting- of the
delegates, and there is no doubt that
Republican voters throughout Lacka
wanna county will ratify the action of
their representatives by increasing the
past majorities given John H. Thomas.
Because General Haftinos does
not propose to lie aliout the condition
of business today, tho Democratic or
gans are calling liim a calamity croak
er. But even if he were that,' lie would
be a great deal more acceptable to the
people of Pennsylvania than a Demo
cratic calamity breeder.
Facta That Talk.
In the Carbondale Leader of Oct. 17,
in the report of a Democratic cam
paign meeting held in that city the
night before, we fiud the following
language attributed to Representative
M. T. Burke: "The story circulated by
his opponents that he had voted
against a measure which was in the
Interest of the workingmen (the free
text book bill) was a lie; that he had
supported that act, but had voted
against all measures calculated to in
crease taxation and further burden the
people of the state." This denial cor
responds with that personally made
by Mr. Burke In The Tribune office
on Sept, 27, and also with one indicated
in the following editorial paragrapl
published in the Scranton Truth of the
Hon. M. T. Burke, the Democratic can
innate for representative In the Fourth
district of Lackawanna county, assures
us that the resolution of the Republican
convention arraigning him for opposition
to the free text book bill did him on In
justice, as he voted for that excellent
measure. It was the obnoxious compul-
ory school law that Mr. Burke opposed
In the house, and In doing so ho deserved
the thanks of his constituents. Fair play
is a Jewel that even politicians cannot Ig
nore with Impunity, no matter what party
inoy may De anxious to glorify.
In view of these assertions, we feel
constrained to call the attention of Mr.
Burke and of the esteemed Truth to
the following article from the Carbon-
T, 1 Tl 1
Herald of April i, 1893,
heading: "Hon. M. T.
Burke Interviewed He Bays Farr and
His Friends Kefuaed to Accept Proper
Amendments and That If the Bill Be.
oumea a Law It Will Prove Unaatls.
factory Because It Doea Not Provide
What the People Want." The body
of the interview is as follows:
Some Interest having been manifested
by our citizens as to why Hon. M. T.
Hurke voted against the Farr free tet
book bill, a Herald reporter last evening
Interviewed that gentleman as to his rea
sons for opposing the measure. In re
sponse to the question whether or not he
was opposed to free text books, Jlr. liurke
"Decidedly I am not. On the contrary
I am heartily In favor of the principle."
"Why, then, Sir. Burke," queried the re
porter, "did you vote against Mr. Farr' a
"Let me explain to you," was tho an
swer. "In the first place," he continue d,
'the law as It now stands provides that
the school boards may furnish free text
books, but the Farr bill changes It so they
shall furnish them. Now that may sound
all right, but It is not, for the reason that
the bill Is not what It purports to be, a
real, free text book measure. It did not
satisfy many of the members of the house
who opposed it, simply because of Its
shortcomings. 1 was one of those who
were dissatisfied with It simply on account
of its Imperfections.
"We thought, however, to remedy the
defects and thus Ret tlu bill In such
shape that we could conscientiously re
cord our voles In Its favor. To this end
Mr. Hartley, of Fayette, on the second
reading of the bill, moved an amendment
providing that the state should pay for
Ihe books, thm. really placing free lxt
books within the reach of the people. The
amendment was iidopted, but Farr and
his friends for some reason were not satis
tied Willi tho change, and during the ad
journment for dinner they put I heir hea Is
together mid decided to reconsider the
amen. linen! for the purpose of knocking
It out, which they did in the Afternoon,
and then talked on another amendment
which provides that when the means of
the district are exhnUFtcd twelve i-itiz tin
can uppoil to court and the court may, If
It be n.ijiulged proper, order an additional
millago for the purpose of paying for the
ivoessary books, so you see that the bill
iocs not provide for free text books be
cause the district must be assessed to pay
for them, and may be assessed on the
double at that.
"The changes myself and others who op
posed the Fnrr bill desired to have mails
in it, would provide that the school
boards should purchase the books and In
the nnnual report which they are required
by law to make to the court and state su
perlntendents report the number of books
purchased, which should then be paid for
by the state on warrant of the auditor
general to the state treasurer. Put till
simple plan did not meet the approval of
the lobbyists of the book publishing firms
who were working In tho Interests of the
Farr bill. The fact that the book trusts
wanted the Farr bill to pass, Is anoth.
reason why I did not like the measure"
Hut," asked the reporter, "does the
bill not provide that tho state shall make
an appropriation of J2,000,0)0 to purchase
school books for the use of the Fchools?
No sir," was the response, "there Is no
such provision, and the only assurance
that we have that such an appropriation
will ever be made Is that Mr. Farr und his
friends say that It will be. But by what
authority they make such an assertion Is
more than I can tell, since the bill itself
makes no provision of tho kind. The ob
tabling of an appropriation will be an
other matter altogether. During the de
bate I put the question to Mr. Farr as to
what osnranees there were that the ap
propriatlon would be forthcoming and he
could give none."
"Then you do not think the Farr bill Is
what Its title would Imply?"
"Well," added Mr. Uurko, "It Is Intend
ed to be a small step In the direction of
free text books, but It Is by no means
whnt the people want, and will, should It
ever become a law, be found anything but
satisfactory. Had Mr. Farr anil his
friends been willing to do what was right
In the matter we would have made proper
provision for tho supplying of free text
books at the expense of the state and
would In a great measuro have shut out
the text book monopolies. I voted ngalns
tho bill because, as I snld, It does not pro.
vide what tho people want In other
words It Is a misnomer. Lytic, the father
of the free text book bill of two years ago,
denounced the measure In the severest
The objections which Mr, Burke
raised in the foregoing Interview have
been proved utterly groundless by the
law's practical test, isut why tioes
Burke now pretend that he voted for
the Farr bill? Why does lie call those
people liars who simply tell the truth
about this forgetful statesman, and
who, as the foregoing extruct Hhows
have air. jjurku'd own woru, or more
than a year ago, that Mr. Burke of to
day is utterly mistaken in his state-
We trust that the Scranton Truth
with its accustomed fulrness, will set
these facts rigtit before Its readers,
The Democratic campaign manag
ers should call oil their dollar-a-day
campaign liar or else stand convicted
of really wanting to see Bailey de
feated. Some lies react.
A word of commendation for t lie
action of Manager Luine, of the Froth
ingham, is in order. While many niny
have been disappointed at the dismis
sal of the concert troupe on Wednes
day evening, all must admit that the
course of the manager of the house was
perfectly proper under tho circum
stances. A theatrical troupe or con
cert company that attempts to intro
duce substitutes in place of advertised
attractions thould ba made to under
stand that the system will not bo coun
tenanced in Si-ranton. The action of
the management of ilie Frothinghain
in refusing to own the house to the
New York Celebrities when it was dis
covered that tho main celebrity w
absent, was a move in the right direc
tion, and one calculated to inspire th
coniidence or amusement bickers
throughout the city.

Probably no candidate In the field
this fall has a stronger claim upon the
voters of Lackawanna county than
William S. Hopkins, candidate for
register of M ills. He Is a bravo soldier
a true Republican, and ever a com
petent and faithful servant of the
people when in an oflko of public
trust. Although he 1b extremely
modest upon the subject in conversa
tion, Mr. Hopkins represents an ele
mout that la too often forgotten of late
by political parties when rewarding
this or that one for meritorious service.
William S. Hopkins represents a
class of patriots who were willing to
lay down their lives if necea'ary in
order that the principles of the best
government upon the earth might be
sustained. It Is a class that ii fast dis
appearing, and tho honors to be ac
corded to the war veteran cannot be
given too soou. In a few years more
the flippant Demo ratio pret's will have
no more occasion to sueer at the ""old
soldier." Let us honor the veteran
while we may. A vote for William S.
