SCRANTON, NOVEMBER 26, 1895.
The Scranton Tribune Is a Republl
; can paper and It will support the
nominees of the next Republican city
convention. Dare the Scranton Re
publican suy as much?
Pennsylvania and the Presidency.
; All the greater states of the north, ex
cepting only Pennsylvania, are already
petting into shnpe to present their
claim for recognition in the Republican
National Convention next year. New
York will present Governor Morton as a
proper and available candidate for the
Presidency; Ohio will come to the front
as a unit for her own Governor McKln
ley; Illinois will, In all probability, offer
Senator Cullom; Indiana, General Har
rison; Iowa, Senator Allison; Mlnne
Bota, Senator Cushman K. Davis; while
all the eastern states will probably
unite on Sneaker Thomas B. Reed.
Where will Pennsylvania stand in
that convention? As a Republican state
she looms high above all the others,
She is second to New York in popula
tion only; she is first In devotion to Re
publican principles and policy as she la
first in Republican majorities. And yet,
Pennsylvania is mentioned only inci
dentally when the Republican candi
dacy for President Is discussed. This
condition is beginning to attract more
or less attention in our own state and a
number of prominent Republican pa
pers are awakening to the fact that the
Keystone Btate has claims which, if
properiy urged to the front, might be
Is there less state pride among the
Republicans of Pennsylvania than ex
ists in other states? Have we no Re
publicans in this state who size up to
those in other commonwealths regarded
as fit Presidential timber? While it
may be admlttted that among our pub
lic men there are none with the national
roputation as statesmen attained by
men like Sherman, McKinloy, Allison,
Reed and Harrison, it is equally truo
that Pennsylvania could present to the
next National Convention a man who
possesses all the qualifications to give
the country an administration which for
Ability, purity and patriotic devotion to
the best Interests of the people would
measure up to the highest and best
What is the obstacle In the wav of a
movement to secure for a Pennsylvp,
nlan the Republican nomination for
President of the United States? The
answer is obvious: The logic, of politi
cal events points to Governor Daniel
H. Hastings as the man on whom the
Republicans of ' Pennsylvania should
unite as their first choice for President,
and with a solid delegation from this
state, wisely led by sincere men, de
voted to the interests of the common
wealth, his nomination would at least
be among the possibilities.
The thread-bare argument heretofore
advanced against Pennsylvania that
"she is safely Republican anyway, no
matter from what state the candidate
comes," should be cast aside. Governor
Hastings would unquestionably be as
strong in the doubtful states as any of
the other candidates named more rrom
Inently for the nomination. The people
of the United States will next year be
Influenced by higher considerations, in
the election of their President, than that
of territorial location. They will vote
for the restoration of a wise and patri
otic policy In our national government,
and that they know can be achieved
only by the restoration to power of the
Republican party. Governor Hastings
Is as good a representative of Republi
can policy, principles and measures as.
any of those who have had larger ex
perience in national affairs. In short,
be Is a "big enough" man for the Presi
dency, and the Republicans of Pennsyl
vania will not be true to themselves or
to their state If they fall to unite in a
determined effort to accomplish his
nomination. The great Republican
commonwealth has earned this distinc
tion at the hands of the Republican
Senator Quay regards Senator Gor
man as the likeliest Democratic candi
date. For licking purposes Gorman
probably could not be surpassed.
Dalzell for Leader.
During the present week it Is hoped
that Representative) Reed, the. speaker-to-be
of the congress which will as
semble next Monday, will decide to
place In command of the Republican
majority on the floor of the house that
gifted Pennsylvanlan and unsurpassed
debater, Hon. John Dalzell. It can be
truly said that there is no man In the
house better fitted than Mr. Dalzell for
the chairmanship of the ' Ways and
Means committee, nor Is there another
member whose constituency so clearly
represents the benefits of the protective
policy' of the Republican party, as ex
hibited In treat, diversified and, tinder
a' protective tariff :' successful'' Indus
trie.' ?,'.r5 ,;;;u-r iH ...
If r. Dalzell would be the' real leader
of hie party In congressional debate,
even though another should be Invested
frith the nominal leadership. His tffts
and Qualtneatlopi for such : priority
cro too many and too important to
pc subordinated. It is to i be"" .hoped
that Mr. Reed will recognize the rule
of fitness regardless of the amiable
tradition which accords the chairman
ship to seniority alone. By so doing
he would put the party In its best
battle trim and gratify every Republi
can who places party supremacy above
purely personal elevation.
The sudden seal of Joseph A. Scran
ton for political reform recalls the
When the devil was 111
The devil a aalnt would be;
But when the devil got well
The devil a saint was ho!
The trouble with Mr. Scranton's pas
sion for reform is that it has no in
clination to take effect at home.
Ex-President Harrison's Paper.
Almost at the beginning of the series
of papers on "This Country of Ours,"
which ex-President Harrison Is con
tributing to the Ladles' Home Journal,
appears this sentence, which Is the
epitome of whole Bermons: "Cod has
never endowed any statesman or phil
osopher, nor any body of them, with
wisdom enough to frame a system 'of
government that everybody could go
off and leave." "The real enemies of
our country the dangerous ones-" are
not," says he, further on, "the armed
men nor the armored ships of the great
powers. If there Is too much exuber
ance In the thought that we can whip
the world it Is a safe saying that we
can defend our land and coasts against
any part of tho world that will ever
be in arms asalnst us. We are alert
as to foreign foes the drum tap rouses
the heaviest sleepers. But we are a
dull people as to internal assaults upon
the Integrity and purity of public ad
ministration." For this reason the ex-
presldent appeals to the mothers of the
lund to redouble their training of the
children in patriotism, in obedience to
regularly constituted authority and in
respect for law and order. Very perti
nent, too, is this excerpt from his first
Many laws are mailo necessary because
we have neighbors because there are so
many people. If there were not so many
people usiiitf the park we mlKht reper.l
the law that forbids the pluclilna of the
llowera and substitute the mlbler rule,
"Don t pull wp the roots." Tho llowera
are planted In public moumls and ut the
public expcntHj, and In a sense they belong
to the people; but since there ure not
rnoUKh for all to pull, and us there cannot
be an ciiual und the largest enjoyment of
them that way, the pulling of them Is
forbidden. All can have frequent and
equal enjoyment of the (lowers If the ap
propriation of them Is by the eye, and the
hands are kept off. A very little child can
understand this object lesson, and when it
has bten received It will restrain thefeet
from crossing many a forbidden bonier.
If all laws, irreat and small, are not to be
observed by every citizen, but each Is to
muKe an elective cone lor nimseir, n is
the end of civil order. We are having a
rennlssance of patriotism and we
need a renalnanee of conscience
toward the law. The man or wo
man who hides property irom the
customs otllcer or tax gatherer, or slips
a foe into his hand to obtain a preterence
he ought not to give, cannot take the lead
In a "tiger hunt." No executive ofllcer
should be criticised for enforcing the law.
We cannot allow him any choice; ir we
do, he becomes a luw-muker. The legis
lators, under our system, mak the laws;
and If they are unwise In the opinion of a
mujority of the people they can be
changed. Hut till then obey them, as you
love your country and her peace.
Very forceful and timely, likewise.
are the ex-president's comments on
lynching, which he denominates "a
dethronement of our constitutional
king, the law." "A lynching," he adds,
"brutalizes those who take part In It,
and demoralizes those who consent to
or excuse the act. Crime Is not re
pressed, but stimulated. The evidence
has not boon taken and to his friends
the man is a victim whose blood calls
for revenge. The frequency of thlt
high crime against the law, and the
Immunity that attends its commission
In our country, have suggested an or
ganized movement for its repression.
There should be a medal of honor for
the sheriff or Jailor who, at the risk
of his life and in the face of an In
flamed community, defends his pris
oner against the mob. The man who
loathes the guilty and cowering wretch
in his custody, and yet dies to defend
him from a mob because the law makes
it his duty to keep and to present him
before the lawful tribunal, is worthy
of a monument. I can think of no
higher test of the loyalty of a soul to
The Whole paper Is a most able, cred
itable and dignified one, the publica

Age and Temperament.
The Philadelphia Bulletin has discov
ered a drawback to the presidential can
didacy of Senator Allison In the fact
that he is already 67 years of age and
would,' If elected, be older at the time
of his I. 'st inauguration than any other
presldei . excepting William Henry
Harrison,' who lived only thirty days.
In the nast fortv Vflnrs tho nlripar nreal.
dent elected was Harrison at fifty-live;
the youngest, Grant, at forty-six, and
Cleveland, at forty-seven. The slightest
suspicion of ill-health or the Infirmities of
age has operated seriously to the disad
vantage of every candidate for either the
office or the nominntlon. It helped to
rule out Mr. Tllden from two campaigns
after his first venture In 1876; It was used
as an argument against Horace Greeley
when he was only sixty-one, and Allen
G. Thurtnan, Horatio Seymour, Oliver P.
Morton, James G. Blaine all found It tell
ing against tbem before they finally gave
up their presidential ambitions.- To it
John Sherman bowed himself in submis
sion three years ago when he declared at
me age or sixty-nine that It was useless
to expect rcognition from the people for
the presidency. .
The argument of advanced age Is a
pertinent one. . The possibility of a
change in the next administration, to
be caused by the death of tho president
and the succession of tbe vice-president,
is not pleasant to contemplate.
The quality of the timber (n late years
chunked upon the tall and of the ticket
has not been such as tolnsptreconfidence
In the outcome of such a transposition.
The succession of Arthur was .the least
unpleasant of these events, yet.lt occa
sioned friction and led to more or less
disappointment The next president
ought to be a man of reasonably rugged
health and fair expectation of life. He
should have the physical as well as the
mental vigor necessary to cope success
fully with the many and Intricate prob
lems of the presidency; and a calm and
equable temperament would be most
desirable.,', ; - " .
Of the candidates most prominently
mentioned on the Republican side of the
house the one who would probably re
ceive the highest rating In a physical
and .phrenological competition Is Gov
ernor McKlnley, He Is a, strong, vigor
ous and even-tempered, man,, who car
ries responsibilities .with dignified tsse. i
Mr. Reed Is satirical and Ironical, with
a tendency toward ' combatlveness;
General Harrison is cold, distant and
suspicious, and Senator Allison is some
whut negative. No candidate , would
make a better showing in this respect
than Governor Hastings, who is a
splendid type of virile and well-balanced
manhood physically and every
other way. If the choice of the next
convention should fall uaoii him, it
would be most advantageously placed.
The semblance of political sanctity
would command greater confidence it

What a pity that Mr. Scranton's vir

THE NEW MAN FROM MAINE.
McFarland, In Philadelphia Record.
Washington, Nov. 23. Enter Thomas
Brackett Ueed, the new "man from
.Maine." Fifty-six years old lust month.
In the prime of his powers, mental and
physical, ten times elected to congress,
spouker of the house of representatives
when he was 5U years old, and about to be
elected speaker again, and by a curious
coincidence, as before, on the second day
of December; today the leading cnndldute
for his party's nomination for the presi
dency and Its mo.n prominent nun, he
tukts the front of the congressional Btage.
For the next six months he will be the
most interesting man in congress, if not
in public life, und all that he says and
does will be Important. His political op
ponents and his party rivals will be watch
ing him constantly, and will be quick to
take advantage if his foot or his tongue
slip. This time, as before, he will be not
only speaker, but leader or rather muster
of his party, and therefore of the house.
I'rain, of Texas, was showing some ladles
the house one day when Heed was presid
ing and somebody was making a speech
on the floor. "Which Is- the speaker?"
asked one of the ladles, who hail never
been in the house before. "Why, thut gen
tleman who is making a speech," said
L'ruln. "Hut who is that In the chair?"
asked another of the indies, who knew a
little more about things, anil she pointed
to Heed. "Oh," said Craln, "that is tho
house of representatives." And that was
as truo as it was witty.
At tho beginning of the session Mr.
Reed stands higher In politics than he ever
did before. He Is the head of the Re.
publican class, and the great question
here Is whether he will be ublo to hold
that which he has Rained. I must say, I
think he will. Now that John Sherman
has pluced his own nume on the retired
list, I think that Mr. Keed Is the strong
est man In the Republican party. He Is
certuinly the most brilliant among Its
leaders. He is the only one who can bo
properly termed a genius. No one would
think of applying that term to Senator
Allison, much less to Governor McKlnley.
Kx-i'resident Harrison, who Is much abler
than cither Allison or McKlnley, would
only be termed a genius by his most de
voted admirers, while everybody else
would say that he was a man of great
talent and great versatility and great
force of character. Reed is different. Just
as lilalno was different, with that differ
ence which we try to indicate by calling
a man a genius. Keed was never appre
ciated outside of Washington until with
in the last half-dozen years, becauso of a
combination of physical lethargy and In
tellectual Indifference which kept him
from putting forth his strength. If he hud
been of lllulne's nervous, excitable and
showy temperament he would have hud
throughout his twenty years of congress
the same prominence that Blaine had
throughout his congressional career. But
here In Washington I think Reed has al
ways been recognized by those who had
the chance of hearing his remurkablc
conversatlon, If not by those who heard
his speeches and rend what he wrote, at
an unusunl and original man from whom
almost anything might be expected In the
way of Intellectual achievement.
"A lazy giant" was .the way he was
summed up a dozen years ago, and the
only question was whether the giant
would ever think it worth while to urlse
and show what he could do. Six years
later he dlk arise, and he soon made his
name a household word all over this
country, and his doings familiar to al
who read newspapers and magazines li
other countries. Since then he has grown
steadily In the public estimation, and.
has just as steadily developed his intellec
tual resources, until now he Is recognize)
at pomething like his real value. His
ambition, that seemed to slumber so long,
woke with a fierce appetite when It dicj
wuke, and his masterful will has been
seeking to gratify It, and In the process ht
has constantly grown in the public eye
Kverybody realizes now that, whatevei
differences there might be as to the wis
dom of his policy or the justice of his
acts, he would be a great president. In the
sense that he would, like President Cleve
land, direct his own administration and
not be directed by the members of his
cabinet. Mr. Heed would govern whether
with or without them, for over everything
else In his make-up stands his independent
and imperious will.
The new "man from Maine" is a real
Maine man. and not, Ilk Ulalne, a Penn
sylvanlan, for he was born In the very
city of Portland, which has ten times seni
him to congress, and he has lived Ir,
Maine almost constantly, getting his edu
cation In her schools and being graduated
at her leading college and having prac
ticed for thirty years at her bar. He U,
a genuine Yankee in everything excepj
physical appearance. Everybody know
how round and stout his body is, how
rolling his walk and how cherubic hit,
face at a distance, for near to, it look
like Bismarck's, and you can see tha
power behind It. He has all tho Yanket
shrewdness and sagacity, and the Yankca
wit comes forth In his Yankee voice, anj
eren- with Yankee pronunciation and thd
Yankee drawl. He has all the strong
New Kngland traits and some of the lino
ones. lils feet are always on the grounij
and his eyes are always on a lovel with
those of other men. There is nothing of
the transcendentalist about him,, and ha
Is a philosopher rather than a poet, but
ha has Ideals as well as Ideas, and hi
admires and practices the sterner vlr-.
tues. He Is not known to be a member
of eny church, and I have not heard or
his being a regular attendant of any on
here, but no one doubts that he is an up-
right man. His private life is beautiful
His wife and his daughter and he ar
three most devoted and Intimate friends.
He has never been rich and probably
never will be, for he is not a moneys
maker and he has neglected his practice,
a good deal of he time that he has beet!
In Dublic life, and he was elected to tha
state house of representatives three years
after he was admitted to the bar. He has
never been able to keep' house here or to
entertain extensively, and this winter, aa
Inst, he and his family will have a small
flat In Vice-President Morton's hotel, the
Bhorehnm, and up on tha fifth floor, at
that. He ha had lrttle leisure of latr
rears for his law practice, and lias made,
suppose, almost as much money by writ
ing for the magazines as he has from most
of hla law cases. However, he has fclwayi
lived comfortably, and I imagine Ills Yan
kee thrift has kept him out of debt. Hf
keenly enjoys What are called "the goor
things of this life" by most people. Hi
likes society, at least, the conversations'
phases of U, and especially dining out, al
though, like most public men, he dislike
public dinners, and since he first became
speaker he has been prominent In Wash
ington society a he never was before. He
Is by far the greatest ot the few public
men who do appear In society, most of
whom are more prominent there than

JOE AS A MUGWUMP.
Scranton Free Press: Will the "Inde
pendent," (the" Republican's) 'or tho
"Straight," (The Tribune's) ticket win?
That is the question. Tho Tribune has a
great advantage over tho Republican, so
far as the titles of the ticket are con
corned. In the past, the average "Inde
pendent" movement In this, as well as oth
er localities, has been avoided on account
of Its being nursed and hatched by dis
gruntled politicians. The "Independents"
generally held a rump convention when
defeated, refusing to nblde by the conven
tion's decrees, and kicked up as much of
a row as they possibly could. Tho
"Straights" can be depended upon to sup
