The Tribune acknowledges the receipt
of same more letters from the anony
mous writer at Montrose, to whom ref
erence waa made some time ago. We
may conclude to produce a fae shnlle
of one of these mysterious epistles, to
show the manly portion of the people
of Montrose what a cowardly Little
specimen of humanity they have In
their midst. Posshbly some one may
iUentify him by his chlrography, dls
Kulsed as it manifestly Is.
Governor Hoyt's Warning.
The Philadelphia Press yesterday re
produced the famous letter of Governor
Henry M. Hoyt to Wharton Barker,
dated Nov. 3, 1882, In which he threw
off the heavy yoke that had been placed
upon his neck by Quay and Cameron
when he became Governor, and which
he wore during nearly his entire term
of office. Governor Hoyt -was one of
the bralnest men that ever filled the
ollioe of governor of Pennsylvania, and
had he declared his Independence of
dictatorial Influence at the commence'
ment of his administration he would
not have prone out of office covered
with humiliation and sorrow, as he did,
His declaration of Independence when
near the close of his administration.
constitutes peculiarly Interesting read
ing at this time. What could be more
pathetic than this:
"When 1 reflect upon the humiliation at
tempted to 'lie put upon myself as chief
magistrate for resisting some of the pur
poses of an Irksome domination which
puts politics above administrative pro
priety, and when I recur to the force of
the Insulting methods applied to myself
by means of threats. Intrigue and bad
faith, I realize the regrets of Cardinal
Wolaey that he "hart not served his God
with halt the zeal he served his king."
"In the name of decency and in behalf
of my successor I wish to cmphaslzo the
curse of the whole business and sound a
note of warning to the whole people.
Self-respect compels me to this avowal.
Nor will peace and reform ever come un
til the moral forces In politics which you
have organized prevail."
Had Governor Hoyt assumed this po
sition at the beginning of his adminis
tration he would have been compelled
to pass through a great battle, but he
would have triumphed, and the people
would gladly have welcomed him as a
leader whom ' it would have been no
humiliation to follow. In closing this,
rthq most remarkable letter ever -written
by a chief magistrate of Pennsylvania,
Governor Hoyt ihumbly admitted his
own part In the system which he so
Vigorously denounced. 'He saldr
"Iri making this declaration I have no
disposition to disavow any share I In
dividually may have had In the partisan
method against which the Independent
movement Is not only a revolt, but a revo
lution; I am simply conscious that I utter
thoughts and feelings which stir to their
depths the minds and hearts of thou
sands In this great commonwealth."
When Gsneral 'Hastings became gov
ernor the attempt was made, to -place
upon his neck the same yoke which
Hoyt wore if or nearly lour years. Hast
ings revolted at tha beginning of his
term Instead of -waiting as Hoyt did un
til the time was almost at hand to retire
from Ws office. (Perhaps he remembered
Hoyt's experience and resolved to profit
by his warning. In any eventhe revolt
ed a'galnst tyrannical domination and
refused to become the obedient servant
and docile creature of a combination
of selfish and greedy politicians. Then,
it was that Quay declared war against.
(Hastings and entered upon a 'crusade
to break down his administration. The
.result is the present factional contest.
Mad Governor Hoyt refused to tooiw
the neck at the beginning pf his term
of office he would have been compelled
to pass through a similar ordeal. (For
tunately Hastings Is a man of courage
and ability. Jle accepted the challenge
to battle, and -whatever the result the
people will in the end hold up his hands
and make htm a victor. - He -will not go
out of office in humiliation and sorrow,
as poor Hoyt did.
Ex-Collector Thomas V. Cooper says
he supports Quay for Cameron's sake.
Congressman Stone says he supports
Quay because he Is opposed to Cameron.
Cooper and Stone should meet In cau
cus to discuss their differences.
Chauncey Black's Confidence.
Ex-Lieutenant Governor Chauncey T.
Black Is not red-headed, but he Is al
ways hopeful. He unbosoms himself
annually about this time of the year
and always predicts that the Democrats
wJH -surely carry Pennsylvania! at the
ensuing state election.. He Is as confi
dent as evejr at this time. In Wash
ington the other day he told a coterie
of admiring friends that the Democrats
of Pennsylvania would nominate afull
. . ticket for judges of the Superior court
bench, and that in consequence of the
. factional fight of the Republicans he
felt confident the Democracy V6uld
carry the state. " ; ' . ' v
-Once upon a tlmA when there Was a
faction fight among; the .Republican's
' Mr. Black was nominated for lleuten-
- ant governor and waa elected. Four
years later tie was nominated for gov
ernor and defeated. Another four years
elapsed and he was again nominated
for lieutenant governor and sustained
a second defeat, although Pattrson. the
head or the ticket, was elected. Since
that time iMr. Slack has not been on
good terms with Harrlty and the other
leaders of the Democracy in the state,
but he nevertheless goes right on pre
dicting success for his party from year
to year.
On one point Mr. Black Is correct; the
Democrats will nominate six candidates
for Superior court judges and there are
other Democrats besides the ex-lleu-tenant
governor who cherish the hope
that more than one of them will be
elected. They count largely on realiz
ing, party advantage from the. war of
the Quay and Hastings factions. What
they hope for is that Senator Quay will
capture the convention. and defeat three
or four of the judges appointed by Gov
ernor Hastings. ThM they think would
precipitate a -rupture which would re
sult In a slashing of their own ticket by
the Republicans and opening the way
for the election of at least half of the
judges by the Democrats. Another dis
appointment awaits the York county
The solitary Quay delegate, from Lu
xerne can Join the Susquehanna breth
ren If he wants company. Third term
Sam doubtless has another collar on
hand nnd would rather take three than
two delegates to Harrlsburg.
Death of Justice Jackson.
President Cleveland will have the ap
pointing of another justice of the
United States Supreme court, to fill
the vacancy caused by the death of
justice Jackson of Tennessee, who has
been In falling health for some time
and unable to attend to the duties of
his office. Justice Jackson -was np
pointed to the Supreme court bench by
President Harrison, and caused prob
aibly more adverse criticism than any
other appointment made by him during
his term In the presidency. Justice
Jackson was an ex-Confederate and a
Democrat of the most pronounced
southern stamp, nnd -It was on that
account his appointment Wy a Repub
lican-president was criticized. It was
argued that there -were many as able
and even abler men Irr the south who
had been loyal during the war nnd that
one of-that class should have been
The dead Justice was, however, a
man of fair attainments and his record
while on the bench was unassailable,
He-was In Tobust health at the time
of his appointment, but within a few
years his health failed and it became
apparent that he would never again bfr
able to perform the duties of his high
office. ITe left his bed at Memphis and
repaired to Washington In order that
a" full bench might pass upon the In
come tax bill. Shortly after the de
cision In that case -was rendered Justice
Jackson returned to his home, and from
that time his strength has rapidly van
President Cleveland will doubtless
appoint a southern man to the vacancy
and there will be a lively competition
among the friends of many aspirants
from that section.
The Republicans of Lehigh county
are having a very lively light for the
delegates to the state convention.- The
Hastings supporters are Compelled U
battle against the Quay Republicans
and the Democratic combined, but they
hope to win In spite br this unholy alli
ance of the opposition.
Morrison Distrusts Hill.
Hon. William It. (Morrison, of Illi
nois, recently announced as a candidate
for the presidential nomination, thinks
he sees a shrewd trick In the endorse
ment Senator Hill has glvehTilm.'- Mor
rison can see through the methods of
the New Tork senator and is not In the
least degree deceived by the wily Da
vid's pretended -preference for "a west
ern candidate" for the presidency next
yeatr." (Morrison Is a bluntly outspoken
man at all tlmesand when asked what
he thought of the unexpected endorse
ment' of his candidacy by Senator Hill
he laughingly remarked that the New
Tork senator "hopes to keep the people
guessing until he can combine his own
fortes and march out' with a strong
front." JMr. Morrison evidently has a
prettjr correct knowledge of Senator
Hill's purposes. When the latter In
dorses any 'other man for the nomina-.
Hon for president it Is always safe to
assume that he Is insincere. Hill wants
the nomination himself and has all his
machinery at work to strengthen him-!
self. IHe is flirting with Morrison; and
others whom he hopes lo use when the
time comes to open the battle-In earn
est. Hill has the organization of the
Democracy 1n his own state 'well In
hand and will have no difficulty In se
curing the delegation to the national
convention,- but he must also secure
southern and western delegations In or
der to win.
Vlce-Ppesldent Stevenson Is regarded
wjtih great favor In some of the southern
and western states. He Is an Illinois
man, and mill's endorsement of Morri
son, who Is from the same state, Is a
transparent - stab at Stevenson. . The
latter ts really a hopoful aspirant for
the presidential nomination, while (Mor
rison l Aot. If the truth were known
It would probably appear that Hill him
self inspired the Morrison bo'orrl 'with a
view to precipitating a conflict In the
state of Illinois between Stevenson and
iMbrrison. As may be seen by the In
terview In yesterday's Tribune, Mr.
(Morrison 1s not deceived by Hill's tac
tics, and he bluntly blurts out what he
thinks of tihe wily New Yorker's meth
ods. ... ' " '.-
Presently the administration forces
will be heard. If IMr. Cleveland shall
really decline to be a candidate again
he -will have a favorite of his own, and
it Is safe to say It will not be either
David B.' Hill nor Adlal Stevenson. If
he decides on an eastern man his choice
will probably be ex-Secretary Whitney,
but he may select a southern or west
ern man and throw the whole Influence
of the administration for him Mr,
Cleveland has, not yet developed his
plans.' ' ' ' ..'.-'.
It Is not pleasant to see Republican
papers like the Pirtston- Gazette- giv
ing, the cold shoulder 'to 4h 'party's
ticket 'lt Lttsarn. ' The "contest for'
supremacy In state leadership 'should
not be permitted to affect local politi
cal Interests. The Gasette made a
hard fight for Quay, as Jit had a right
to do, but It will make a mistake If K
carries its warfare Into the local cam
palgn,- The, defeat of Mr. Ferris for
the Judgeship nomination was a great
disappointment to all PKtston Repub
licans, but they eannot Justify them
selves for opposing so good a candi
date as Lyman H. Bennett.
Tha Irrepressible and unquenchable
Congressman "Jack" Robinson, oi vet
aware county, one of Quay's most ar
dent adherents, vociferously demands
that every one of the six Superior court
Judges be defeated for renomlnation
Congressman "Jack" feels that confi
dent his friend Senator Quay will have
everything his own way In the state
convention. The Senator would hardly
go that far, however. He would not
defeat his friend, Judge Wtckham, but
there is not much doubt that If he had
the power he wouM knock out three or
four of the Judges. Happily ne -win
not have the power. Robinson would
pull the Republican temple down any
day from motives of revenge.
Editor James P. Taylor, of the Mon
trose Republican, has taken as a part
ner District Attorney Alney and It Is
rumored that third-term Wright will
have an interest In the new paper that
will be issued by the Globe Publishing
company. It is a little early to predict
what effect these deals will have in the
way of enlivening Susquehanna jour
nalism. If our contemporaries, how
ever, desire a few pointers on the man
ner In which their prospective contem
poraries may be made right spicy and
Interesting they should consult Brother
Barrett, of the Truth, and Brother Bell,
of the Times of this city.
Congressman Stone, of Allegheny, has
made himself a laughing stock by his
declaration that he supports Quay In
the present faction fight because he is
opposed to Cameron. Colonel Stone
stands "solitary and alone" In this re
markable- position. All the other anti-
Cameron men are against Quay because
he Is the direct representative of Cam
eron and Is fighting his battles for him.
Stone might better have followed Con
gresmnn Scranton to Europe and es
caped making such a pitiful Spectacle
of himself.

Sustained by tha Elements.

on until the middle of September, as
printed In the Record, and wishes to
sandwich that hot wave with a few cool

Philadelphia Press: "This Is pretty hot
weather; and to think that If David Mar
tin had not rejected Senator Quay's oro-
poials the Penrose-Andrews-Lexow com
mittee would now be in Europe having a
nice time on the fund it was proposed to
raise to pay the expenses! How exasper
ating It must be to the members that Mar
tin could not be made to faH Into Senator
Quay's scheme. When that failed the real
object for which the committee was cre
ated failed."
Why Should There Be a Change?
Norrlitown Herald: "Why should there
be a change In the management of the Re
publican party In Pennsylvania at this
time? A few months ago all was har
mony and the majority was 210,000. No
one objected to the present administra
tion until Quay 'put In his oar' for per
sonal motives only. To speak by the card,
doe the senator believe that he can
'raise' the 240,000 Republican majority and
go It a few thousand better? Do any of
bis friends believe It?' .

From Barron's London Letter. '
The Radicals are consoling themselves
in the prospect of their being a minority,
with the cheerful reflection that "should a
Unionist majority be returned to the next
parliament Mr. Chamberlain will not long
remain a member of the cabinet." And
Labouchere, regarding Chamberlain us
the betrayer of Gladstone, institutes a
caustic comparison In these words: "What
would have been thought In the councils of
the Pharisees had Judas been made a col
league of the high priest, Calaphas?"
Could American politics" say more?

Kisses better far than honey you can
