After today's returns shall have come
in, abutting the neighbor who runs for
office on another ticket will be less
popular In Lackawanna county than
ever before, and much less likely to bo
repeated In order to fit the mental cali
ber and habitual associations of roving
bushwhackers from the big cities. Get
out the entire Republican vote.
Look Out for Fraud!
The Democrats have grown desper
ate. It has been discovered that a
plan has been conceived by them to
erase the voters' marks from Republi
can ballots and substitute marks of
their own. Overseers and watchers of
elections are therefore cautioned to see
that this is not attempted or consum
mated. There Is reason to fear that many
such fraudulent devices will be attempt
ed today. In the vocabulary of the
men who are directing the Democratic
local fight there Is no such word us
conscience. They have resorted to lies
and libels during the forepart of the
campaign, and it Is no stretching of
credulity to suspect that they will, if
they see the chance, connive at open
- fraud at the polls.
But the Republican county commit
tee has not forgotten to take precau
tions. Every election officer should
understand the magnitude of the pen
alty against ballot frauds. Those who
are In complicity need "not expect that
they can evade the law.
No Jugglery with today's ballots. No
crookedness in tonight's counts.
A vote for Judge Archbald will be a
vote that will help to keep the Judiciary
of Lackawanna bounty upright, honor
able and learned in the law. A vote for
P. P. Smith will be a vote to put one
man's uncurbed ambition above every
consideration of gratitude for his com
petitor's faithful service on the bench.
The people are not In a mood to toler
Following the Smutty Path.
' We regret that not one of the Demo
cratic local candidates has had the
courage or the manliness to repudiate
the abusive course of the Scranton
Times In Its effort to blackguard him
Into office by circulating wilful and
bare-faced lies about his Republican
opponents. The failure of these men to
disconnect themselves from this vitu
perative policy Is equivalent to Its In
dorsement and to that extent sullies
every candidate's fame, from Edward
Merrlfleld down, with something of the
smut-mill's own Bmut.
For, when these candidates, sub
scribed money to circulate the Times,
they became directly responsible, not
only morally but also legally, for its
scurrilous utterances. If, after elec
tion, It should be decided that the titu
lar lessees of that unfortunate news
paper were accountable before the law
for Its erratic conduct, and of enough
consequence to be prosecuted, the men
who have had complicity in this nasty
conspiracy of character defamation
would also come within the scope of
the statute against libel; and could be
mulcted for exemplary as well as com
It is therefore far from creditable to
either Edward Merrlfleld, P. P. Smith,
James O. Bailey or Charles Schadt that
by their silence they should indicate a
willingness to see personal abuse super
for courteous discussion, Had the tables
been turned; that la to say, had the Re
publican newspapers chosen to enter
into a competition with the Oakford
alley sheet's nauseating filth and slime,
is there in Lackawanna county one per
son wh'o believes Jhat Judge Archbald,
Frank Clemon and Honest Tom Davits
would not have entered their Immediate
protest? The evasive explanation that
"all Is fair In politics" does not excuse
downright indecency nor clear the
skirts of those who are co-partners in
its utterance and dissemination.
Of their own free will, the Democratic
candidates have chosen the Bmutty
path. Let the voters today manfully
refuse to lend to this bad choice the
weight of their sovereign condonation.
"Honest Tom" Davles will get such a
testimonial in Hyde Park today as will
effectually disprove the charge of trad-
lug and counter-trading.
William R. Leeds dropped out of
politics very suddenly, for a man of his
former prominence. Only last spring,
at Harrisburg, when General Hastings
was nominated, Mr. Leeds had de
clined Into scarcely a suggestion of the
alert and much-consulted man that he
had been, only four years before, In
hotel corridors during convention time.
Fashions change, In politics as well as
in dress. The forward march of young
er blood seems gradually to have left
the "deucon" In the rear; and now
death has come and removed him for
ever. His career supplies much that
Is suggestive, but the world is probably
a good deal too busy to stop long enough
to think seriously about It.

The Real Issue Defined.
The campaign of character assassina
tion waged by the Democrats of Lacka
wanna county through the 'medium of
an imported campaign sewer will today
come before the voters of this county
for approval or censure. The broad
principles of the Republican and Demo
cratic parties were clearly defined
weeks ago. It Is not necessary, at this
late time, to repeat the familiar fact
that Republicanism stands, In a na
tional sense, for protection and honest
government,- whereas Democracy
stands, in the wor.ds of its highest ex
ponent, for "perfidy and dishonor" for
mongrel tariff tinkering which is
neither the free trade that the masses
of the Democratic party have in na
tional convention declared for, nor the
protection which Samuel J. Randall as
serted to be Inseparable from true
Americanism. The last two years have
afforded vivid contrasts between Re
publicanism, as typified In thirty years
of unexampled prosperity and Democ
racy, made costly to every . citizen
through a blight upon trade and labor
unexampled in the history of our coun
try. Upon these points we may fairly
assume that every reflecting voter has
already arrived at a decision which
will be expressed In the ballot that he
will cast today for governor and con
gressmen. The Immediate Issue which yet calls
for a thoughtful decision, an issue less
general but not less significant than
any other question Involved In today's
election, is the problem whether a ma
jority of the voters of this county will
knowingly give their sanction to the
villainous lies and bold, blushing slan
ders upon which the Democratic county
campaign management has based its
hopes of party success. It will become
the duty of Individual voters today to
decide whether a reputable and faithful
Judge, after a decade's brilliant service
upon the bench, Is to be shoved ignom
inously aside in deference to the unre
strained abuse of a lying campaign
Journal, and in furtherance of the in
satiable personal ambition of a once-rejected
Judicial office seeker. It will be
come the duty of Individual voters also
to decide whether a clean and capable
young Republican business-man, who
has served this city most efficiently In
both branches of its municipal legisla
ture, shall be lied out of the sheriff's
office through the venomous abuse of
unprincipled adventurers who scent In
the election of Mr. demons' opponent a
chance to get their filth-covered fingers
upon a new source of pecuniary
This, in plain words. Is the local Issue.
It is a battle to decide whether repu
table men who become candidates for
office are to be lied about, slandered
and vllllfled as If they were pickpockets
or criminals In the dock. It Is a battle
to decide whether politics Is any excuse
for brazen falsification and the defiant
libeling of a man's good name. It Is a
battle to decide whether the self-respect
of the Democratic masses in this
county is to be offended with the filth
and slime of two roving newspaper buz
zards from the big cities who have
picked out Scranton as a suitable place
and the Lackawanna Democracy as a
suitable audience for the spewing forth
of partisan foulness and the vomiting
up of putrid epithets. The Democratic
leaders have Indorsed this malodorous
method of attack by giving to these
libelous charges widespread publicity;
but we much mistake the temper of
the fair-minded Democratic rank-and-file
If they propose today by their votes
to ratify any such anarchistic nastj
ness. The Republican who shall today vote
for a Democrat as a personal compli
ment will not need to bo surprised if
that single vote should be the means of
defeating his party and putting new
weapons into the enemy's hands, for
use in 1M)G.
It Is not what today's election means
In way of Republican success; it. is the
moral effect of today's verdict upon the
next presidential campaign which
voters Bhould heed. Get out all the Re
Support Republican Congressmen.
"The one thing needful for the res
toration of at least a moderate perman
ent business prosperity," says the
Pittsburg Times, "is the absolute as
surance that there shall be no further
tinkering with the tariff in a direction
prejudicial to great American Interests.
Whatever revival of business there has
been during the past two months has
been due largely to the belief that, not
withstanding the foolish threats of
President Cleveland and Chairman
Wilson to the contrary, the end of that
sort of tariff tinkering was reached
when congress adjourned. Until this
belief, however, becomes a certainty,
millions of dollars will be withheld
from expenditure in all branches of
business and Industry, and hundreds of
thousands of work people will as a con
sequence remain out of regular em
ployment. There is but one sure and
certain way in which to put these mil
lions of money pulsing through all the
arteries of business life and to give
these multitudes of Idle men steady
work, and that is to put it beyond the
power of the Clevelands, Wilsons and
Singerlys to do any further mischief.
The only effectual method of achieving
this will be to place the control of the
next house of representatives safely In
the hands of the Republicans. If this
Is done by the voters of the nation next
Tuesday, foolish and damaging tariff
tinkering will be ended, for, backed by
the unmistakable sentiment of the peo
ple of the country, the Republicans and
conservative Democrats In the present
congress will be able to prevent the
passage of any legislation inimical to
American Industry during the coming
"For these reasons It in most highly
Important that the Republican candi
dates for congress, both at large and In
the respective districts, shull receive
the active support of every citizen who
desires to see a return of better times
as speedily as possible. There is not
the slightest excuse for any Republi
can refusing to cast his vote for any
congressional candidate of the party at
this grave crisis. The best Interests,
not of the party alone, but also of the
whole nation, demand a Republican
house of representatives In the next
congress. It Is possible for the con
trol of that body to depend upon the
vote of a single member and for that
member to be chosen by a majority of
but one vote at the polls. The whole
question of whether the Industries of
this country shall be allowed peace and
a chance to recover some measure of
permanent prosperity, or be doomed
to months and years of further turmoil
and uncertainty, may be decided by the
action or Indifference of some indi
vidual Republican voter. In districts
where a largo Republican majority is
assured the obligation of every advo
cate of a change for the better to sup
port the Republican congressional can
didate is equally strong, so that they
can help to swell the grand total ot the
protection vote . of the country and
thereby increase the moral force of the
verdict to be registered next Tuesday."
This means you.
THE ISSUE 01 TODAY.
From the Philadelphia Press.
The question at Muko Is an simple and
direct as was ever presented to intelli
gent men. They were well; they Imag
ined they could be better; they took phy
sic, and here they lie. They know that
the unscttlement and uncertainty which
followed Democratic success with the
threat of tariff revolution brought general
paralysis and prostration. They know
that tho threat has been realized In the
enactment of the destructive Wilson-Gorman
law. They know that the only hope
of recovery Is a' return to tho protec
tive system which has been partially
overthrown, or at least peace from fur
ther agitation and security against fur
ther assaults. And they know that the
supreme Issue of this contest is peace and
recovery on tho one hand, or renewed
warfare and calamity on the other.
President ICoveland declared that the
Wilson-Gorman law was only a vantago
ground for further attack on protection.
Mr. Wilson proclaimed that his bill was
only the beblnnlng of the revolution. No
Democrat of authority pretends to dis
pute that, in the event of Democratic
success, tho crusade will go on. If the
American people by tholr- votes approve
and Btistuin Mr. Cleveland and Mr. Wil
son, these enemies of protection will
claim, and will be justified In claiming,
that it Is a popular mandate to reopen
their warfare with fresh vigor. The Is
suo then is so plain that no rational nvin
can misunderstand it. Every Democratic
vote Is a vote to raise the black flag and
renew the assault upon American indus
tries. It Is a vote to continue tho agita
tion, to strike fresh blows at the econo
mic system which has built up our pros
perity, and to give the business of tho
country no peace and no revival.
Do business men want rest from de
structive Uigitatlon? Do manufacturers
want stability and security? Do work
ingmen want the wheels. to start and the
fires to be kindled which will give them
employment and save them from further
reduction of wages? Then elect a Repub
lican house of representatives.
DECENCY ALWAYS PAYS.
From the Carbondao Herald.
There Is a noticeable , Improvement cf
lata In the manner of conducting political
campaigns. Partisan newspapers and
partisan orators no vlonger Indulge in
throwing mud at the personnel of tho op
posing tlckot. Our campaigns are more
and more becoming ones of education ami
less of ribald abuse. Jfn illustration of
this was given in Thursday's Scranton
Tribune which, although, an able and
earnest protectionist paper pays the fol
lowing compliment to Candidate gingerly:
"There is one thing to be said of Will
iam M. Blngcrly, politics or no politics,
and It Is a considerable tribute to a man
with his partisan affiliations. He Is sin
cere in hl3 beliefs and uncommonly
frank In thoir expression. Bhould he, by
any chance, be elocted governor, this
commonwealth would have nothing to
apologize for In the direction of his per
sonal characteristics. His cloctlon, in a
political sense, would be a great misfor
tune; in an economic sense it would be
a signal to the tariff wreckers at Wash
ington to proceed with the ruinous agi
tation and panic-breeding demolition of
American industries; but in a personal
sense It would escape even the most viru
lent criticism of opposing partisan ex
tremists." This is the proper spirit and the more
of it that is shown the less will our pull
tics be open to the charges that have had
such a tendency to deter able men from
mingling In tho affairs of government.
Like many other things to be seen at the
present day, it is a hopeful sign and au
gurs well for the future of tho country.
Correcting a .Mistake.
From the Philadelphia Press.
The expression of 1890 was a fitful and
unreflecting outburst of passion; that of
1892 a wayward and Insensate freak of de
lusion; that of 1894 will be the deliberate
and conclusive dictate of illuminating ex
perience and irresistible reason. With the
vivid object lessons of the past months
blighting their homes and opening their
eyes, the American people will do all in
their power to check tho flood of disaster
which they blindly and madly lot loose
two years ago. Then they took a wild
leap in the dark. They raBhly and Impul
sively plunged upon an untried and un
known experiment. Now they know the
direful consequences they called down
upon themselves by their colossal folly,
and their overmastering purpose will be
to do what they can to rectify the awful
THE SONG I NEVER SING.
As when In dreams wo sometimes hear
A melody so faint and fine
And musically sweet and clear,
It llavors all the atmosphere
With harmony divine
So, often in my waking dreams,
Like fairy voices whispering
I hear the song I never sing.
Sometimes when brooding o'er the years
My lavish youth has thrown away
When all the glowing past appears
But as a mirage that my tears
Have crumbled to decay
1 thrill to find the ache and pain
Of my remorse Is stilled again,
As, forward bent and listening,
I hear the song I never slug.
A murmuring of rythmic words,
Adrift on tunes whoso currents flow .
Melodious with the trill of birds,
And far-off lowing of tho herds
In lands of long-ago;
And every sound the truant loves
Comes to me like the coo of doves
When llrst in blooming fields of
I heard the song I never Blng.
Tho echoes of old voices, wound
In limpid-streams of laughter where
The river Time runs bubble-crowned,
And giddy eddies ripple round
The lilies growing there;
When roses, bending o'er the brink,
Drain their own kisses as they drink,
And ivies climb and twine and cling
About the song I never sing.
An ocean surge of sound that falls
As though a tide of Heavenly art
Had tempested the gleaming halls
And crested o'er the golden walls
In showers of my heart....
Thus thus, with open arms and eye3
Uplifted toward the alien skies,
Forgetting every earthly thing,
I hear the Bong I never sing.
