Quay and Mckinley.
The right of each Republican to havft
a preference for the presidential nomi
nation to be made next June at St. J-ouls
cannot be questioned. It Is equally
within his right to give voice to that
preference ana to work to convert oth
ers to his way of thinking. The only
point to be considered by those Re
publicans In this section who are In fa
vor of some'other candidate than Sena
tor Quay ts whether It would not be
more courteous to the majority senti
ment In Pennsylvania and more con
siderate of the party's Interests In this
state to subordinate that preference
for the time and to turn in with a will
for the Pennsylvania candidate, than
to raise a new war of factions by Insist
ing upon the choice of anti-Quay dele
gates. Let us not permit a sentimental
feeling for Major McKinley, for In
stance, to cause us to forget the
promptings of state pride or to Impel
us to snub the leader to whom, when
the convention Is all over, we shall look
for guidance In the hard work of the
It Is not presumptuous In Pennsylva
nia to aspire to the presidency. We
have certainly as strong claims on the
party as Ohio has; and since the elec
tion of Lincoln, Ohio has. contributed
two presidents while Pennsylvania has
not yet contributed one. Comparing
the two men, Quay and McKinley, what
do we find? In the latter, a man of ex
perience In only one direction, and thut
a direction In which he Is regarded by
many as an extremist; In the former, a
well-rounded, practical, level-headed
statesman, a leader who knows human
nature, a brainy, resourceful, far-seeing
man of affairs. We do not dispute that
McKinley Is a showier man than Quay;
that ho Is better looking on dress pa
rade and more fascinating In debate;
hut Is he Quay's equal In practical ex
perience, foresight, sagacity or shrewd
ness; In short, In the essential qualities
of a great executive? Could he have
done what Quay did in 188S when the
latter organized the campaign that
elected Harrison; could he have done
what Quay did In 1893 when Quay, al
most single-handed. In the senate
fought a saving measure of protection
Into the original Wilson bill, thus pre
serving Pennsylvania's Industries from
utter ruin? In short. Is he a practical
man or a mere theorist, and if the lat
ter, which kind of a president do we
The Tribitne would support Major
McKinley for president with the ut
most pleasure. It recognizes in him a
clean, honest and straightforward Re
publican, to whom accident has given
a leading place in the favor of his
party, but who would, If nominated,
doubtless prove entirely worthy of the
leadership thus achieved. At the same
time, so long as .Senator Quay remains
In the field, we consider it not only a
duty but also a pleasure for Pennsyl
vania Republicans to accord their will
ing support to his candidacy. In the
knowledge that should Quay win, he
would make one of the safest and best
of presidents, and that, should he lose,
the loyal support accorded to him from
his own state would constitute a pleas
ant recollection, and form a desirable
precedent for the future.
In addition to having plenty of ex
perience and backbone, Senator Cullom

Lincoln as a Politician.
In the course of his Interesting lec
ture on "Lincoln and His Cubinet," de
livered at New Huven one week ago
tonight, Hon. Charles A. Dana narrated
one reminiscence of the great emanci
pator which he averred had never be
fore appeared In print. It bore on the
question of practical politics, and
showed that, great as he was, Mr. Lin
coln was none too great to accept con
ditions as they existed and to strive
to make the befit of them. The ques
tion before the country was the adop
tion or rejection ot the Thirteenth
amendment. This amendment, Mr.
Dana tells us, "was Intended not mere
ly as a means of prohibiting slavery
and decreeing its abolition, but as a
means of affecting the Judgment und
the feeling, and the anticipations of
those In rebellion. It was believed that
that amendment to the constitution
would be equivalent to new armies In
the Held, equivalent to sending a hun
dred thousand men to light, because
this would be an Intellectual army and
an Intellectual force that would tend
to paralyze the enemy und break the
continuity of his Ideas. In order to
amend the constitution It was necessary
llrst to have the proposed amendment
approved by two-thirds of the states,
und when that question came to be con
sidered, the issue was seen to be so
close that one state more was necessary.
Then the state of Nevada was organ
ized to answer that purpose, and was
admitted into the Union. I have heard
people sometimes complain of Nevada
as a superfluous and petty state, nut
big enotiKli to be a stute; but when I
hear that complaint 1 always think of
Abraham Lincoln's saying: 'it is easier
to ndinlt Nevada than to raise another
million of soldiers.' "
This, however, is not the ultimate
point. That point is thus outlined by
When tho Question finally came around
to be voted Uiuu in the house of reprv
aentutlves, It required three-quarters of
tha votes: and. this vote, this Una I J".-t-
moii, wus canvassed earnestly. Intensely,
most anxiously lor a lonx time before
hand. At lust, lute one afternoon, I hi)
president came Into my otllce. a room In
the third story of the war department.
He used to coir. there sometimes ratner
than send for me. because he was very
fond of walking, and liked to ko about
a good deal. He came In and snut tne
'Dana, he said. "I am -verv anxious
about this vote. It has not to be taken
next week. The time Is very short. It Is
going to he a great deal closer than 1
wisn it was.
Therearcplenty of Democrats who wish
to vote for it." 1 replied, "and who will
vote for it. There Is Oovernor Enullsh.
of Connecticut; I think he is sure, isn't
Oh, yes. he it sure, on the merits of the
"Then," said I, "there's Sunset Cox, of
Ohio. How is he?"
He Is sure and fearless. But there are
some others that 1 am not clear about.
There are three that you ran deal with
better than anybody else, perhaps, as yon
know them all. I wish you would send
He told me who they were: It Isn t neces
sary to repeat the names here. One m.in
was from iew Jersey and two fron New
"What will they be likely to want?" I
"I don't know." said the ores dent: "I
don't know. It makes no difference,
though, what they want. Here is the al
ternative, that we carry this vote or he
compelled to raise another million and I
don't know how many more men, and
fight no one knows how long. It is a ques
tion of three votes or new armies."
'Vell. sir," said I. "what shall I say
to these gentlemen?"
"I don't know," said he: "hut I say this
to you, that whatever promise you make
to those men, I will perform it.
Grievous as the fact will be to our
Mugwump friends, Mr. Dana adds that
he did as Lincoln wished. He saw eac h
of the three men, and won the support
of each by offers of patronage, promis
ing one a custom house appointment,
and the other two. Internal revenue col
lector-ships. The collectorshlps were
given over at once, as agreed; but be
fore the custom house matter could be
reached, Mr. Lincoln had been shot,
and Andrew Johnson had become pres
ident Mr. Dana says:
I had gone awuv. and was In the west.
When one day 1 not a telegram from lios--oe

'I want you to go and see President
Johnson and tell him that this custom
house affair Is a sacred promise of Mr.
Lincoln's, and that It must be kept."
Then I went to the white house and saw
This lMr. Lincoln's promise." T nmcl
"He regarded It as saving the necessity of
another call for troops, and raising per
haps a million men to continue the war.
I trust, Mr. President, that you will see
your way clear to execute this prom
ise." 'Well, Mr. Dans," -fee replied, "I don t
say that I won't, but I have observed In
the euiiiiH uf my experience that such

The course pursued by Judge Gun
ster In calling Cornelius fimltli, esq., to
account for written statements rellei t
lug upon the bench Is manifestly prop
er. The veil of charity has too long
shielded this attorney's course In rela
tlon to the Jennings case und appurten
ant Issues. Something should now be
done in the direction of Justice.
Piatt o.i the Raines Bill.
I2x-Senator Piatt, the real parent of
the Raines bill, has been moved by ad
verse criticism to enter the arena In
that Interesting measure's defense,
What he says Is also Interesting. "New
York," he remarks, "has long preserved
an unenviable notoriety among her sis
ter states for the number of her sa
loons. We have staggered along with
one drinking place to 150 people, while
our more sensible neighbors In other
states have only one saloon to 317 peo
ple. It Is not denied that the places
where liquor Is sold will be reduced at
least 40 per cent., or that between 9,000
and 10,000 will go out of existence at
once. Is It necessary to point out the
Immediate great reduction of poverty
and crime which Is certain to follow
such wb: legislation?' To which )h)
rrommtionist win no uouui auu mat
the reduction ought to be made coin
plete by wiping out all the saloons.
Again: "The bill will furnish Instant
relief to the taxpayers of the state.
The state's share of the Income from
the bill will not be less than $2,750,000,
and the share of the different towns
and counties will not be less than $.1,500,
000. The hard truth Is. the measure
raises the money to pay one-third- of
the state's entire expenses every year,
and it Is believed by those who ought to
know thut Its reduction of local taxes
will be nearly the same, thus taking off
two-thirds of the burden of the tax
payers in the different localities."
Concerning its political effect, the ex
senutor says: "The bill does as much
to take the liquor business out of poli
tics as It Is possible for legislation to do.
It substitutes one responsible authority
which covers the whole state for the
hundreds of petty excise boards which
have thus far existed. It wipes out
forever in New York Tammany Hall's
power over the liquor seller?!, and re
leases them from Its control over their
purses. It makes it Impossible for any
political organization to harass the
liquor interest, and this does more to
purify the politics of the great cities
und large towns than any meusure ever
enacted In the state. And It does all
this for about $150,000 a year, or about
the same amount the board of excise
costs New York city ulone."
Finally, Mr. Piatt sayd:
The Rallies bill makes the linuor dual
er u self respeclin;5. citizen. So lon us
he observes the law his vetted rights
citnnoi dm inn-uigcii. no need not worry
over Tammuny Hall's exactions In New
York or the demunds of the head of the
ring in Troy. From the day the bill be
comes a law he walks forth u free man,
and after he has discharged his obllu.-i-
tlons to the stute no one enn muke nlm
ufruld. li Is in the very widest und best
sense a bill to secure the liberty of the
suhjeet. i.lke nil wise ami beiietlclul leg
islation, this law cannot be made to serve
as u respector of persons. It cannot be
used ror or annlnst any political party or
for or against any Individual, whether
thut Individual 1m poor or rl -h. It is the
most distinct advance tn a higher plane of
government In slate uffnlr. and In l.iml
a nans as well, thut New York has ever
known. It serves the very highest inter
est of true temperance reform, while It Is
In no sense a sumptuary law. It Inter
feres with no man's eating;, uml it iloea
not strive to regulate any man s drink
ing. It is a bill to reduce the amount uf
poverty and crime throiiKhout the itut

frankly confess that we should like to
have Air. liatt's statements put to the
test. Almost anything would lie nn Im

three years are literally muklng .McKin

It Is Interesting to notice that Aldermm
Jones' Carbonriale organ, which one year
ago was strong for Quay, Is now equally
strong asainst him. It wants the Fourth
district to choose anti-Quay delegates.
The recent talk in "Luserne of possible
opposition to Congressman Lelsenrlng'a

the Luzerne senatorial fight Colonel W. J.
Seott is reported to be making unexpected
The mention of Colonel Watres' name
for state chairman to succeed Senator
Quay Is received with marked favor by
the state press. The mention of Senator
William H. Andrews' name for that plaa
is received with equally marked disfavor.

talk of a Philadelphia n successor to Coa-,nressman-at-Large

It Is estimated that of the uninstructed
delegates .McKinley will get IS. Quay 8,
and Allison and Reed, ii uplece.
The Harrisburg Patriot vouches for the
Information that Quay nnd .Martin have
made their peace and thru Munin will
again resume business as Quay's Philadel
phia lieutenant. The story is plausible
and also credible, since neither would pro
tit by prolonging the fight.
It seems thai last year, when Chris Ma
gee was complaining at the failure of tho
legislature to pass the congressional ap
portionment, Senator Quay suggested that
Allegheny ask the state convention to give
an equivalent. -Ma gee and iilnn now
want the nainintr of two congressmen-lit-large
and also two of the delegates-iit-large:
but whether they will get them
or not is another question.

fathers of the McKinley boom. Is dlssalin

which he pronounces "neither flesh. Ilsh

In Brother Kohlsaat's opinion, "must not
only pronounce flat-footed and unequivo

subsidiary only, but it also must recom
mend to congress retirement of the United
