J ""t lmatrlne it so, and stick to it. and you are all risrht until votea are counted. - - Cannot Comprehend Honesty. The Soranton 'Kepubllcan la unable to understand honesty and good faith In politic. This is one of the distinguish ing characterises of our morning con temporary. Politics without trickery, bad faith and dishonesty, Is a mystery to that paper. This fact accounts for Its attempt to ridicule the action of the Lackawanna delegates In pledging themselves to support Oovernor Hast ings and his administration In the Con vention. Such a declaration was not necessary to convince honest Republi cans that the delegates would be true to themselves and to the majority of the party they represent, but it was necessary to take such action to uut a quietus to the reports constantly set on foot by Quay's tricksters and schem ers that Beveral of the Lackawanna delegates would support Quay. These reports were industriously circulated for effect In other parts of the st.ite to make It appear that Quay, had a ma jority. The same dishonest trick Is re sorted to In Luzerne and other counties. The Republican's attack on Judge Wlllard yesterday la only a continua tion of the contemptible policy It has pursued throughout the campaign. Judge Wlllard Is a frank and an honest ' man who faithfully stands by the friends who have stood by him. He was not trained In the Joe Scra-nton school of politics, and therefore does not receive a favor with one hand and stab the man who confers it with the other. Colonel Ripple stated the situation frankly and plainly In his Interview with a representative of the Truth. The battle for state delegates In this county was fought on a square and dis tinct Issue. That Issue was the chair manship of the state committee. The Hastings administration stood on the one side and Senator Quay on the other. Quay and his supporters made the at tempt to defeat each of the seven Hast ings delegates and failed. They an tagonized Colonel Ripple and his six colleagues because they represented the anti-Quay sentiment. Having failed In this attempt they Immediately set up the claim that some of the suc cessful delegates were Quay men and would betray the administration In the State convention. Judge Wlllard and the seven delegates elected In his interest and In the Inter est of the Hastings administration are honest men. Incapable of treachery ot bad faith. The Republican would loud ly applaud anyone of the number who should betray the trust reposed In him. That is the Republican's Idea of politi cal methods. It is Incapable of absorb ing honesty, good faith and decent meth ods in the achievement of political ends. That paper and its chief have wallowed for so many years in the dirty puddle of political trickery, treachery and bad faith that it can neither appreciate nor comprehend straightforward manliness and honesty In political action. This fact accounts for Its surprise, as ex pressed in yesterday's issue, that the Lackawanna delegates should openly declare their purpose to carry out In 'the state convention the purpose for which thejr were elected. The people of Philadelphia and Pitts burg .will never select Matthew Stanley Quay, of Beaver county, to head a movement for reform in those cities. There is no reason why they should; each of them contains citizens capable of beading reform movements. More over, tha people of Philadelphia, are not unacquainted with the fact that the very evils that have cursed their city were conceived by Quay and Inaugurat ed under his dlreotlon. Quay in the role of reformer la ridiculous. The Syndicate. , The Belmont-Morgan syndicate, who were paid so liberally by the Cleveland administration In the last bond sale transaction, are manifesting an Inclina tion to carry out their portion of the contract, and to that extent deserve credit Previous to that Bond sale, by which the syndicate made about 16. 000,004, Secretary Carlisle was unable to maintain the gold reserve,- The treas vry'department 'literally' paid the "Belmont-Morgan syndicate millions of dol lars as an Inducement to prevent fu ture raiding of ttie treasury of Its gold. On Tuesday the syndicate for the sec ond or third time came to the rescue of the treasury by depositing $l,M6,00O in gold and talcing notes In exchange. A telegram from Washington states that Secretary Carlisle Js very -much gratified at the action of the syndicate s"nd accept It as conclusive that here after Che 'cold reserve wQt be main tained at 1100,000,000. The syndicate can ;' well afford to-do this In View of the enormous gains. Obey made' by tha spe- : tlsj Xftror . shown them b .Cleveland and Carlisle. - During Kepubllcan ad ministration there was no necessity for such shady transactions. The gold re serve was then maintained by the pur suance of a sensible and business-like policy. ' The Philadelphia Times wants "the factional organs to teH he truth with reference to the delegate elections. The Times should set the example of truth telling. Up to date ft has falsified more than any other newspaper in the state. A Reasoa at Last. Some days since The Tribune asked why do the Democratic leaders and press so vigorously and even violently support Quay In his fight for suprema cy In the party leadership? The Phil adelphia Record volunteers to answer this frequently asked but not heretofore answered question. The reason It gives Is remarkable for Its frankness. Here Is the gist of it: "There are, however, specific as well ns general reasons why Democrats should !uo with Senator Quay rather than with his enemies. Democrats will never forget that when a Republican president and con gress soiiKht to substitute the rule of the bayonet for that of the ballot box Sena tor Quay's vote was cast against and helped to defeat the infamous force bill. A weak man. or a cowardly man afraid of the party lash, would not have dared to take that manly and magnanimous course." The reason here given is at least a substantial one, and It may be ad mitted that Democrats have good cause for an expression of gratitude to Sena tor Quay. It a true, as the Record says, that a Republican president and a Republican congress made the at tempt to pass a federal elections bill (the Democrats call It the force bill), a measure which contemplated nothing more than to secure to the white and Mack Republicans in the southern states the right to vote and to have their votes counted as they were cast. The Democratic leaders, north and south, realized that the passage of that bill would assure free, fair and compar atively honest elections In the south, and result In tlhe loss of half a dozen southern states to the Democrats In the prtsldentlul election of 1S92. Senators Quay and Cameron joined the ranks of the southern brigadiers in the senate and the defeat of the federal elections bill may taltly b attr.buted to their efforts. The first result was the loss of the presidency for four years, for there Is no reasonable doubt that hud fair and honest elections been possible General Harrison would have carried half a dozen southern states and been re-elected three years ago. If tlui Democrats, as the Record to nil Interests and purposes claims, owe their restoration to power In the national government to the treachery of Senators Quay and Cameron In voting with the Democratic senators against the fed eral elections bill, then It must be ad mitted that the Pennsylvania Demo crats would be ungrateful Indeed If they dhl not rally around the Junior senator In his present flv-ht, but the giving of such a reason, as the Record does, at the same time supplies a very substantial argument why Republicans should not feel it to be a duty to spe cially honor him. No Democratic senator had the power to render his party such efficient ser vice as Senatur Quay did, according to the Record. The Tribune most heart ily congratulates Itself on having been the means of Bolvlng the problem: "Why do the Democratic leaders and press so earnestly and so unanimously rally around Quay?" The answer of the Record Hs emphatic and apparently conclusive. Senator Quay deserted his party associates In the senate, defeated the federal elections; bill, made the elec tion of Cleveland possible, and gave the Democratic party four years of power In the national government. How do stralght-from-the-shoulder Republi cans relish that kind of an admission by the paper owned and controlled by the lust Democratic candidate for gov ernor, Hon William M. Singerly, the man repudiated by the voters of Penn sylvania by a majority of 210,000? We thank Commodore Klngerly for his frankness in answering The Tribune's question. It U only recently thalt Senator Quay Is opposed to the use of money in poli tics. When he was at the Wyoming house In this city he told the Susque hanna delegation that they should name the sum It would coot to capture the Susquehanna delegates, and "make the figures) high enough." If any one doubts it put Third Term Sam and Tommy on the witness stand and swear them. Oovernor Hastings' Attitude. There has been so much misrepresen tation, so much (falsification iwith ref erence to the attitude of Governor Hastings In the present faction, fight that many people have doubtless come to regard him as the aggressor. On tlhls point the Philadelphia Press, In an admirable article, says: "Governor Hastings knows his position and his duty. Me accepts his obligations and 'his responsibility. He opened no con test with any leader and he makes no war upon any Kepubllcan. He wants all Re publicans to exercise their legitimate In fluence within their legitimate sphere, and through all the winter and spring he was liberal up to the limit of reason In de ferring to the wishes of Senator Quay. Ho wanted no issue h.nd sought in every way to avoid a conflict. He has not stepped aside from his straight pathway to make any contest. He was for. apportionment at the beginning, and stood by It to the end. He was for Mr. Gllkeson for chair man of the state committee through all the winter and he is for him now. It was his duty to adhere to his publlo promise, and It was his right and his obligation to stand by his own cabinet associate. The war comes from those who undertake to trample upon the party pledges and to overthrow the existing party organisa tion." This 1s a fair and entirely truthful statement .of the case. The war was forced upon Oovernor Hastings by men who failed In their attempt to make of htm a mere subservient tool to fur ther their own selfish ambitions and Interests. When he became governor, he recognized no faction and no partic ular Individual interests. He regarded himself as the chosen governor of the entire Republican party, and gave to all classes fair recognition In every way. Moreover, he had due regard for his oath of office and sought by every means to see that the constitution was respected. When Senator Quay found be could not bend the governor to his own arbitrary will he resolved to break down his administration. . Oovernor Hastings was not the aggressor, (but he knows how to defend the honor and Integrity of tils administration, and that is what he Is doing. The case of Editor Travers, of Wilkes-Barre, should furnish a warning to Journalists .who have An otrtbltion to please the reading publlo with editions of the red-hot newspaper. The enter prise ot Editor Travers in publishing "all the news" has resulted in making him the defendant In a serious slander suit. Travers. who is now in Jail, and can get no one to become his bonds man, weeps over his fate and states that several prominent citizens ot WUkes-Barre promised to stand by him. The experience of Travers tias many parallels everywhere in a mild way. There are lots of persons who are willing to stand by the editor If he .will publish an article-that pleases their fancy and will even ossUM in furnishing details, but when t'here Is any clubblng ,to be received the men. who stand by the editor are liable to become very bash- Independent" meanness. In the present campaign the so-called "Independent" papers, of which the Truth of this city Is an average speci men, have manifested a spirit of par tlsanism and, narrow meanness exceed ing even the most reckless of the ultra Quay machine organs that call them selves Republican. Yesterday's Issue of the Truth more than Justifies this criticism. Its columns editorial, news and local teemed with the character istic misrepresentations, falsehoods and rank partlsantsm ot Quaylsm, utterly giving the lie to Its pretentious inde pendence. It did not even hesitate to admit to Its telegraphic news columns a bogus Interview, manufactured at the Quay literary bureau, attacking Judge Wlllard'a honor and Integrity as a member of the Superior court. Com mon neighborly decency, to say nothing of the courtesy that obtains among gentlemen occupying reputable posi tions In the same community, It might have been supposed would restrain the Truth from admitting such rot to Its columns. The labored and voluminous editorial In yesterday's Truth 'lauding to the skies the pretentious reform programme of Senator Quay, Is another evidence of the arrant hypocrisy and slavish sub servience of tho editor of the Truth to the blandishments of Quay. No man In this community knows better than does Hon. John E. Barrett that Matthew Stanley Quay is himself the father of nearly all the legislation un der which the rottenness that curses Philadelphia's municipal government was made possible. He knows that of aid political corruptlonlsts this state has produced Colonel Quay stands foremost and pre-eminent. No one knows better than does Editor Barrett that Quay's present pretentions to purity In politics and honesty in government is a hypo critical pretense, sham and fraud. When a newspaper like the Truth, pretending to be Independent, honest and reliable, champions such fraud, and distances even the most mercen ary partisan organs In its laudation of such hypocrisy and shams, It is time to expose It to public contempt and dis dain. The Trutfh's attacks upon Judge Wll lard, and Its reflections upon the Integ rity and sincerity of the Lackawanna delegates to the state convention, are on a par with Its general conduct In the present campaign. The Truth can only be characterized as mendacious when It assumes that any one of the Lacka wanna delegates has at any time con templated supporting Quay, or in any way proving faithless to the adminis tration. As to holding Judge Wlllard responsible for the action of the dele gates, that also Is an unwarranted out rage. Throughout the campaign Judge Wlllard has conducted himself with the dignity and propriety becoming his judicial position. He would scorn to profit try treachery to the adminlstra tlon. It would seem to be almost as difficulty for the Truth as it Is for the Ropubllcan to recognize the fact that honor and good faith are not yet ex tinct among men wtoo take an active part In politics. The Quay boomers ore keeping up itlhe game of brag and bluster, and will keep it up to the end. It Is their prin cipal stock In trade, and they will find It mighty poor stock when the time comes to count delegates at Ha.rrls burg. COMMENT OF THE PRESS. Aeknowlodges His Fitness.

By Matthew Stanley Deunls Q- Once, upon a midnight dreary, as I pon dered, weak and weary. O'er the luck that followed Hastings In the full of ninety-four; O'er the luck that caught me napping, suddenly there came a tapping, Like some senator flip-flapping, 1 had heard such sounds before; "Andrews must have come," I muttered; "evil tiding erst he bore; I presume he brings some more," Ah I distinctly. I remember, seemed as though 't were In December; Never twenty-eighth of August promised frost like this before. Eagerly I wished the morrow, so that haply 1 might borrow - Some one's second-hand "Inquirer" clam oring for Murtln's gore; Whilst an angel of Frank Willing, with his martyr's wings galore, It would make forevermore. And the cruet, sad, but certain, news from counties I got hurt In Filled me with a fear for me and Don I never felt before; Fear that Cameron might be trollled, and I nevermore be solid With the rank and file of voting men a In the days of yore; Never boss the ranch again as In the happy days of yore - Nevermore, ah I nevermore, : Presently, my , soul grew stronger), hesi tating then no longer, - "Bill," said I, "what message bring you from the Susquehanna's shore? WC11 Lusernt'e unjust seetsers, following Lackawanna's leaders, ' Thus Ignore the magnetism that my pret ence to them boreT ' Louder, Bill! I scarce can hear, you" here I opened wide the door; Sulphur fumes there nothing more. Deep Into the darkness peering, long I stood there, trembling, fearing Lest the Cameronlun barrel should give out as oft before; Lest a sub yet colder-blooded and more fiendish and mora studied Than the one which Newell's letter dia bolically bore (Ohl that stab, ungrateful Davtes, you will rue forevermore), I might get outside the door. Back Into my chamber turning, deep re venge within me burning. Soon again I -heard a tupping, somewhat louder than, before. "Is that you, Magee?" I muttered. "Did you find your bread was buttered On the aide 1 oft have told you In our counseling of yore? Will you be my henchman, Chris, again, as In the days of yore?" But the wind sobbed, "Nevermore!" Open then I flung the shutter, and, before I scarce could mutter Maledictions on. the presence that kept tapping at my door. In there came, with plt-a-pstter, the pale ghost of Delamater, , Ferried o'er the Htyx by Andrews In the fateful rays of yore. Had It. then, returned to plague me, from the night's Plutonian shore? Be my ban forevermore? Then the spirit, meek and lowly, crossed the room and climbed up slowly On a silver bust of I'umeron standing on my chamber floor. Not a syllable It uttered, till I scarcely more than muttered: "Other friends I loved have left me, gone to join the HusIIiik corps; On the morrow wilt thou leave me for the Kraceless IIostitiKS corps?" And the ghost nlgiied; "Nevermore!" "Thniiks!" I said, "from thy old mastor, threatened now with dire dlsustrr: Thanks! and keep me Cameron hidden till this cruel war Is o'er; You are In It, but not ot it. Bay! you must be quite a prophet, HaviniT dwell so long In silence on the night's Plutonian, shore; Tell me, Khali 1 win the luittle? turn up trumps as heretofore?" And the ghont moaned: "Nevermore!" "Prophet!" snld I, "thing of evil! Prophet, still; now what the d 1 Do you mean by Intimating that my foes shall wipe the floor With my senutorlul garment? Dare you tell me that thut varment Oilkeson, the bold liucks braggart, shall "be thQ chairman- o'er and o'er? Is my goose forever cooked since Hastings won In ninety-four?" "Yes, Mutt, yes, forevermore." "Ohost or fiend!" I cried, mwtarttng; "do you mean to sny that Martin Or that i.'harley Worwlck never my for- glvcnuss Khali implore? Why, the pull I gave them made theml rrom obscurity Ulil all them To positions no such pettifoggers ever reached before! Will they still join hands against me? hands already stepped In gore?" "Yea! they will, Matt, evermore." "Be that word our slun of parting, grisly gliost! 1 shrieked, uinlat'tlug; "Get thee down from Cameron's statue, get tnee back to t'luto s shore! ' But the spirit, slyly winking, answered: ".Matthew.
