'"Amonif intelliui'iit iiuii." said .Mr.
Heed, "the sins of omission arc worst
than the sins of commission. For two
years the Democratic leaders, who ur-i
Intelligent men, have hail opportuni
ties to fulfill the promises they have
been making for thirty years, and the
net result Is widespread distress, silent
machinery, workmen In Idleness and
business sliignution, while the same
1'emocralic leaders have been i-hnsing
the butterflies of Impossible free trade.
"For thirty years Republican speak
ers have been warning the people what
would happen If they nlloweil even a
shadow of free trade to lilt across the
land, but they thought they would test
tlte change. They had seen the sun rise
and set for thirty years, and they had
good wages, which they thought must
keep on us did the sun. T don't think a
Democrat ho much worse than a Re
publican, but a very small per cent,
makes the difference between a busi
ness success and a business failure."
Republicans will nppettl to congress, if

their candidates seated. These dis

I me iiiinioer oi I'einocrnis in noi more
; than four, and possibly to two. There
i are only three districts in the state
j that have not been carried by the Ue
! publicans at one of flu two elections
; held since tlie Democrals took control
j of national affairs. ,
I The figures of the congressional elec
1 tions two years ago cannot serve as
n guide in the present campaign,
i ti vents which have since happened
j make them useless as a basis of caleu
' lation. it call lie assumed without
I least fear of dispute that every district
j now represented by a Republican will
I have a Republican representative in
' Hie next house. With the two members
at large tills makes a start of twenty
Republican members, which all wiil
concede. In every heretofore Detn
oiTHtie district save one that com
posed of Berks and Lehigh counties
the Republicans are making a hopeful
contest, and in the one noted as an ex
; ception they ate making the light cx
j actly as If they expected to v.in.
llultcnnau W ill Win.
ihe Third district, composed of var
ious wards In this city, which has al
ways had a Democratic representative,
wll undoubtedly elect a Republican this
year. Tlie party lias a winning can
didate in Frederick llaltermun, one of
the sturdiest of our business men and
in ail respects iltted to represent the
district. There is no district now rep
resented b a Democrat more certain
to go Republican. Of the other dis
diicts it can be safely assumed thai the
Twelfth, the Twenty-fourth und the
Twenty-sixth, all of which now have
Democratic members, will elect Re
publicans. The lust two nre strongly
Republican on a national vote, anil
went Democratic two years ago by ac
cident. The Democrats are pretending
to some expectation of carrying the
Twenty-sixth district, where Sibley Is
their 'MiiJliVito, but there is no condi
tion of things 1 ihe district to justify
imv s'toh hone The Twelfth district Is
cempisr-d of I. I'.ern" county, which
lust February gave n Republican ma
jority exceeding 3.000, and Is us likely
HH not to Incre.is- it in November. The
Twenty-fourth district guve about 8.000
Republican majority at the last elec
tion, and lias had enough experience
with Democratic congressmen to want
no more of them.
Next to these conies the Schuylkill
district, from which Mr. Rellly, u
Democrat, has been elected several
times In succession. If the Republi
cans are ns united there an they are
now represented to be they will easily
elect the Republican candidate. He enn
only be defeated by the loss of Repub
lican votes. At the election last Febru
ary the Republican majority In Schuyl
kill was 1.400, nnd there nre additional
reasons now for repeating that figure.
There have been some factional
troubles it', tie county, but there is en
couraging reason to believe that they
will be laid aside if that has not al
ready been done in the face of the
grave dangers which mennce the coun
try In a continued Democratic majority
In the house. We do not believe tho
Thirteenth district is doubtful.
The Luzerne district, that composed
of Schuylkill, and the Twenty-fourth
and Twenty-sixth are the four which
the Democratic congressional commit
tee concede, with fears for some
others. The Republicans do not propose
to stop with them, nor with tho Third
district, which Is not conceded, added
to them. The Kighth. Seventeenth,
Nineteenth nnd Twenty-eighth dis
tricts ure being contended for in a way
to Inspire conlldence in a successful re
sult. Klther of them would have been
regarded ns utterly hopeless In any pre
vious campaign, but there is not now
one widt h there Is not a reasonable
chance of winning. It la much mora
than probable that two ot the four
will elect Republicans, with n most ex
cellent prospect that it will be three
out of the four.
Another Hopeful l ight.
J ii the Kighth district there is no
comparison between Judge K,lrkpat
lick, the Republican candidate, and his
Democratic competitor, Jpseph J. Hart.
The latter Is merely the proxy for Con
gressman Mutchler, who, owing to the
opposition of the Harrity faction in the
district, was unable to secure n nomina
tion for himself. It is perfectly well
understood that if Hart is elected
Mutchler will continue to control the
affairs of the district to the end of tho
Cleveland administration, the same as
If he remained the representative. It
Is, besides that, n district that has suf
fered in a very considerable degree
from Democratic hard times, and while ;
it was not one that gave a Republican
majority last February, It gives every
promise of a revolution at the comlrg
The Seventeenth district, although
Democratic by 5,000 two years ago,
went Republican in February, and so
did tlie Twenty-eighth, while the Nine
teenth came within a very small num
ber of votes of it. There is very little
doubt that the latter will now elect
Colonel Stahle to congress over Peter
H. Strublnger, This has already been
conceded by Democratic authority, for,
in addition to the natural feeling of
the people, on the general issue, Strti
blnger is a personally unpopular candi
date, and not the kind of a man the
Democrats of the district want for a
representative. On the other hand,
Colonel Stable has great popularity
where he is known, was a courageous
soldier in the war and Is a successful
farmer. He would muke by all odds
the best representative the district has
hud in many years.
If the Republicans In the Seventeenth
nnd Twenty-eighth districts do their
duty as well ns they did it In February,
both these districts will be won. Both
have large mining, manufacturing und
agricultural interests, which ure best
subserved by Republican success, and
which cannot afford any further agita
tion of the tariff question under a Dem
ocratic administration. Tlie Republican
candidate in each district Is thoroughly
representative of the principles and
purposes of the party. In full sympathy
with the people and thoroughly practi
cal. There would he no encouragement
to free trade in their election.
l et Common Sense Prevail.
The fact that the people are showing
a disposition to cast their votes this
year on a common sense business basis,
and with u patriotic desire to end the
Democratic hard times, makes it en
tirely reasonable to calculate that
Pennsylvania will not send more than
two or three Democrats to the next
congress, and it Is quite possible the
representation of the free trude pnrty
may be reduced to one and that one of
no earthly account beyond a vote.
At the same time that Pennsylvania's
vole fof protectionist Contri-cRMmen
there is every reason to bel'h e they
will vote the entire Republican local
