8CRANTON, NOVEMBER 14. 1S95.
It Is a pretty true saying that there's
no man so completely mean and con
temptible as the ingrate, and a living
proof of the adage can doubtless he
found next door to the postofflce.
Lancing an Ingrate.
Representative Scranton, when con
fronted with the evidences of hla base
but characteristic Ingratitude, through
his newspaper and In the Times' Inter
View tries to shift the subject. We
do not propose to let him do It. It Is
needless to say that we have no quarrel
with any of the gentlemen who met
Monday night In Captain Molr's of
fice. We do not "whack" at them.
Their right to their opinions and pref
erences Is sacred and supreme. Many,
probably most of those present that
night owe nothing to what the con
gressman from this district is pleased
to call the "Connell ring;" and hence in
their meeting together to further the
Interests of a number of candidates
supposed to be hostile to that "ring"
there was no impropriety.
But In the behalf of Congressman
Rcranton, whose recent begging for aid
from the so-called "Connell ring" has
been open and notorious, and who has,
If the truth were known, been under
such obligations to Mr. Connell and his
friends that decency at least, If not
gratitude, should urge him to silence,
no such plea can truthfully be entered.
His blatant harangue against his ben
efactor, uttered coward-fashion be
hind the latter's back, was a specimen
of cold and undiluted gall, Just like
him, to be sure, but none the less
nauseating to men with a sense of
honor. Mr. Scranton can deny until
doomsday that for this disgusting ex
hlbltlon of his malice, spleen and envy
he was "called down," but we have
better authority than his own worth'
less word for saying that he was, and
right vigorously at that!
The Tribune does not worry over this
rank lngrate's familiar bluster. It will
not descend to his plane of spumous
billingsgate. But it wants the people
of Scranton to know, if they don't al
ready know It, that the present raging
champion of "antl-Connelllsm" Is the
same fawning suppliant who has twice
owed his nomination for congress to
the mistaken generosity of the men he
now honors with his scurrility,
' What Immeasurable contempt the
people of Lackawanna county would
have for their mlsrepresentatlve in
congress If they knew all tho details
of his political perfidy!..
says the Timest "It surprises us
that Mr. Scranton should go out .of his
way to give a gratuitous slight to P. A.
Barrett, a newspaper man who has
nothing to do with the case and who,
at times has been kind to the esteemed
editor of the Republican." There Is
nothing surprising In that The surest
way to win this ingrate's enmity Is to
.be kind to him.
Matthew Stanley Quay had taken J.
A. Boranton's measure correctly before
he exolatmed: "I have no further use
for him." The Republicans of this dis
trict have no further use for him,
either. . '
The Situation in Maryland.
' Friends of Senator Gorman represent
him as being utterly overwhelmed by
the result of the election In Maryland.
They say that he was genuinely confi
dent of success and would have staked
his last dollar upon the chances of
Hurst's carrying the state. The dis
crepancy between his expectations and
the mathematical fact In the premises
Is atttrlbuted to the handiwork of the
"Merit voter, who, with never a flourish
of trumpet nor beat of drum, walked
up to the polls on election day and de
posited a verdict of deliberation and
There la no concealment of the fact
that Gorman was beaten by Demo
cratic votes. A majority of the voters
of Maryland are yet Democratic
when the party lines are fairly and
clearly drawn. But It may be possible
for the Republicans In that state, by
moderate and Judicious administration,
to retain tho support of a sufficient per
centage of the thoughtful and intelli
gent Democrats to Insure the continu
ance of their present control of the
state. The case stands like this: On
the one side are the Republicans, a
minority; oh the other are the- Gor
manltes, also a minority; the Independ
ent Democrats cannot elect a ticket of
their own, and they cannot consistently
go back to the Gorman column, hence
we have the possibility of their becom
ing permanently Identified, on state
Issues, with the Republicans.
Tho most satisfactory feature of the
recent campaign In Maryland was the
established Importance of the race cry.
Senator Gorman staked his all upon the
appeal to white prejudice against the
negro. His references to this subject'
were unblushlngly demagogical. 4 The
voters of Maryland were told that Be-
poblioan success would mean the plac
ing of the negro in supreme control of
the state governmental machinery and
might even force him into the white
man's parlor and at the white man's
dinner table. In fact, no change was
left urung In the octave of racial prej
udice, and in the forepart of the fight It
looked as if this unconscionable trickery
might win. But In the last days of the
canvass popular intelligence revolted,
with results already familiar. This
fact alone would Justify general Jubt
The wrangle in the Democracy over
Judge Smith's vote Is a sheer waste of
time. There Is no low on tho statute
book whereby It will be possible to
punish the people of Pennsylvania for
voting for Smith instead of Yerkes.
The right to vote as one pleases has
not yet been ' cancelled in this com
Georgia has been called, and very
aptly, the Pennsylvania of the south.
It therefore is fitting that In the dls
plays of human skill and handicraft
now collected In Georgia's beautiful
capttal city Pennsylvania's exhibit
should, among the northern represen
tations, take first place..
Nor Is it unreasonable to expect that
In the new era of rapid Industrial and
commercial development upon which
Georgia and the re-anlmated New
South are Just entering, Pennsylvania
capital and Pennsylvania products will
play an Important part. There is a nat
ural interrelation between these two
sovereign industrial commonwealths
which no superficial division of politi
cal sentiment can long obscure. The
South will come to the North for Us
money; and while there it will come to
Pennsylvania for Its machinery, its
fabrications of Iron and steel and brass,
and Its Industrial plans and models.
The growth of this awakening section
will be a vindication in no Btnall degree
of Pennsylvania skill and Pennsylva
nia enterprise; and at its prosperity
Pennsylvanlans will be among the first
The exercises of yesterday at Atlanta
were therefore more than nominal and
formal. They were prophetic. They
foretell the day of closer union and
franker and freer intercourse. They
form Pennsylvania's ratification of the
compact of accelerated kinship and
friendship, and constitute the felicitous
ceremonial of a new wedding of the sec
tions. A current dispatch from Washington
intimates, upon the vague authority of
"a prominent Democratic senator," that
President Cleveland will in his next

States go into partnership with Great
Britain in building the Nicaragua
canal. This is probably an Idle rumor.
A partnership of the character pro
posed could not be effected while the
American congress retained possession
of its senses.
An Impossible Plan,
The Pittsburg Times, In noting the
determination of the labor unions to
move for a repeal of the present absurd
law prohibiting the manufacture and
sale in this state of oleomargarine, con'
cedes the improbability of accomplish'
ing such a result in the face of the Ig
norance, prejudice and class selfish'
ness massed together In favor of that
law. But It proposes a compromise
measure, which It thinks ought to to be
passed without much trouble. It Bug'
gests that a system of inspection of ole'
omargarine be established which will
stop the sale of the adulterated product
concerning which the dairymen are so
greatly exercised, and In order to make
the inspection effective it would have it
performed by Federal authority In con
nection with the Internal revenue de
The trouble with the Times' plan Is
that It rests upon the Incorrect suppo
sition that the farming Interests would
be willing to permit pure oleomargarine
to enter into competition with their own
often adulterated butter. To be sure,
there is no conceivable reason why the
farmer should be marked out for special
favoritism under the law and no ex
ruse for the establishment of a legal
Inhibition against the manufacture and
sale of the chemically pure butter of
the laboratory. But might makes right;
and the rural members are mighty in
the biennial deliberations of the Penn
sylvanla legislature. Therefore the
Times' .eminently fair and sensible
proposition a proposition the adoption
of which would cheapen the grocery
bills of thousands of day laborers and
other persons in straitened clrcum
stances to whom dairy butter, by rea
son of its artificially exalted price, Is
almost a forbidden luxury will fall flat
and the present comedy of class pref
erence go on, to the exceeding great de
light of the Pennsylvania granger.
The Harrisburg Patriot Is unable to
account for the large vote received by
Judge Smith In the county of Lacka
wanna, except on the theory of fraud.
To people In this and Luzerne counties,
where Smith's majority over Yerkes
was secured, the explanation is easy
enough. Thousands of Democrats vot
ed for Smith alone.
The Liquor Problem.
In si recently Issued address to the
clergy Bishop Doane, of Albany, takes
a position with reference to the liquor
problem which will arouse widespread
dissent, but which Is at least worthy of
consideration. "I am more and more
convinced," says be, "that we are ab
solutely insecure so long as the state
.undertakes to exercise any special con
trol over the sate of liquor other than
that which It exercises over the sale
of other things. The temptation Is ir
resistible for the liquor dealers' to elect
the legislature, or at least a majority
of It, In their Interest;, and, as irre
sistible for the average politician to
prostitute their offices by pandering to
the liquor dealers to secure their votes.
No excise law can be framed that will
not, either by its strict enforcement,
create a popular excitement by Its al
leged Interference with Individual lib
erty, and its unfair discrimination of
privilege between classes, or It will be
used for many years as a means of ob
taining money to purchase immunity
for crime." 1
"Meanwhile," he adds, and here Is
where the critics will take him to task,
if the state let the whole matter alone,

by the law of supply and demand.
There would bo no more liquor saloons
than tho thirst of the neighborhood re
quires, and there would be no tempta
tlon on the riart of politicians to sup.
port them as places In which they could
secure Influence, or to liquor dealers to
establish them as centers of political
power." But the law of supply and de
mand applies differently to the liquor
traffic than to most other branches of
trade. The supply. Instead of satisfy
Ing the demand, as would be the case
with clothing, food or most other neC'
essarles, stimulates It; until we hav
lllustrated a kind oT perpetual motion
which would tend steadily to Increase
the proportion of the saloons to the
number cf inhabitants. Where such is
the case, society has a right to inter
pose artificial restrictions with a view
to minimizing the harmful results.
We do not wonder that Bishop Doane
is disAtlsfled with the present favorite
method of dealing with this problem. A
moro unsatisfactory adjustment than

the state confessing, by its Interference
with the liquor traffic, that that traf
flc Is more dangerous than the traffic
in bread, meat and potatoes; and on
the other you have it volunteering to
compound the peril for a specified cash
consideration. But the discovery that
high license is intrinsically illogical and
vicious does not further the problem's
solution. Upon the whole, we can see
no better way out of the dilemma than
to favor the Gothenburg plan of state
or municipal ownership and control
under regulations sufficient to bring the
evils of tho traffic down to a low min

public sentiment shall decree Its utter

P011TIC3 AND FRIENDSHIP.
Walter Wellman. In Tlmes-TTnrnl.1.
Jf 1 were a Drencher 1 ooulfl irpf im a
pretty good sermon on the friendships of
politics. I know It is the fashion to look
upon politics as a game of delllshness, and

But ufter a somewhat Intimate annualnt.
atu'e with politicians of both parties for
Hume years i am willing lo go on record
witn tne statement that more genuine
lrientianips are lormcci in pontics than
in any of the other relations of life. More
over, politicians wbo amount to anything
must be munly and true. No sneaking,
double-faced, treacherous man ever made
more than a temporary success in poli
tics. He Is sure to be found out. and
lilsuovevy means ostracism. Politicians
are not ansels, but their vices are at least
manly. The first thing they learn is to
stanu oy their menus, to keep their word,
to be ready to help unselfishly In any
emergency. There Is no other field nf ir.
tlvlty in which the old saying so well a p.
pnex, inui in oruer 10 nave iriends you
must be a friend. One may succeed in
business or professional life after a
lasnion wunout menus; but In politics,
A few months before he dlerl Horatio
Seymour said to one of his friends, Dwlght
Lawrence, or ssevi lorn: 'Uwlttht, I feel
that I am near the end of my career, and I
want to tell you something. I have had a
great deal to do with politics and with
politicians In my time, and as I look back
over the past I can clearly see that the
best friendships of my life have been
lormea in politics, it is in politics that I
have met the manliest men, the most
generosity, xnese friendships have been
enuunng, too; many 01 mem nave con
tinued throughout life. I believe polities
uniiMs on i me nest mere is in man. It
teaches the narrow man to be broad, tho
Heinxn one 10 no generous, inis la true,
because friendships are essential in mi-.
cess. In that field of acUvlty ono must
have friends or he can't get on, and if he
wants friendships he must deserve them.
I would not advise anv vounir man to tav
out of politics because of the danger of
ueing uvmormi.Ku. ir ne is tne right kind
vi man 11 win uo mm gooa.
It Is a fact that the personal friendships
of politics have combined to produce the
most poweriui jorce in tne Kemrblican
party of today. I mean the alliance of
Quay, Piatt, Clarkson, Fesaenden, Man
ley and others. It is not my business to
defend that combination, which has for
its object domination of the party and
control of nominations. But it is never-
tneiess true mat this alliance had Its
foundation in personal friendship. Thnaa
men, with many whose names have not
oeen mentioned, nave Deen thrown tO'
gather In the strife of conventions and
campaigns. They have sometimes been
opponents, but they have learned to like
one anotner, to respect one another's word.
to entertain mutual confidences. They
nave in me nam ngniing or many cam
palgns learned to know where the true
metm is, wno are tne men who never
nunK, wno uo not want everything In sight
when they win, and who do not whine or
rcproacn wnen tney lose.
Personal friendship in this way served
as the natural basis on which was built
an alliance clearly the strongest seen in
Republican politics since the days of
urn nt ana uonKiing. an alliance which
plans to nominate Reed, probably with
Allison as an alternative choice. Perhaps
the alliance will fall, for it is sure to
rouse antagonistic sentiment and compet
ing combinations, but there is. no good
reason why we should not accurately
characterize the conditions out of which
It' was formed. It Is noteworthy, too, that
these men who have welded themselves
Into collusiveness with a practical aim
have done so largely In protest against the
sort of thing in politics which every de
cent man abhors. Their allowance Is a
natural reaction against Ingratitude,
broken pledges and the Insolence of power.
These are the men who, through respect
for manliness In politics, would not per.
mlt one of their- number to takn from
Wanamaker the cabinet post which he
had been promised, who would not per
mit Quay to be driven from the national
committee chairmanship by the man
whose election ho had battled for, who
firotested against disregard of the prom
se that Piatt should be secretary of the
treasury, who protested against the man

pose or method of these men, but we must
respect that part of their general motive
which had its origin in disgust with in
The thought has often occurred to m
that Dersonal frlendshiD la the haul nf a
great deal of the remarkable activity In
politics which we see In this country an
activity which no other country in the
world can duplicate. In what other field
of human energy will men exert them
selves so much and sacrifice so much
without hope of direct reward? At the
call of a leader like Mr. Piatt, or Mr.
Harrlty, or Mr. Quay,, or Mr. Tanner,
thousands of men leave their homes and
(heir business and go to county conven
tions. A thousand or two more pay their
expenses to a state convention. Many
tnousanns leave nome ror a week or two
to attend a national convention. Not one
