When you see It In the Scrantnn Re-
put.lleati (ix-m.) don't lie too sine that
It Isn't stolen from The Tribune.
Tn tlio ronilltionrt irnvornlnfT The
Tribune's olTer. of a V' cash prize for
thi- est original short story, the sui-c-p.ssful
inanuscrlpt wus to become our
exclusive property. These conditions
were accepted by the management "f
the elstecUlfoJ and were duly respected
by It. Hut the Scranton Republican
(Ilem.). thliiklnp to be smart, held back
its edition yesterday morning until
The Tribune hud been printed, and then
stole the story bodily from this paper
without a syllable of credit, serving; It
to Its readers several hours after The
Tribune had been delivered.
Had the responsible managers of the
republican stolen $2"i worth of our type,
furniture or other tangible property,
they could have been arrested and put
behind iron bars. As it is, the story
not havlnn been copyrighted, they have
stolen $25 worth of our literary prop
erty and are Immune from prosecution.
The only redress open to us is to set
them before the public as self-convlct-
etl sneak thieves. "We do not believe
that many of the readers of that pa
per. when these facts are known, will
care to stand, in the light of receivers
of Htolcn goods.
The action of tho Republican has
Justly excited the indignation of the
Welsh people of Scranton, who aim to
keep their elsteddfodlo annals free from
the contaminating presence of plngiar
Ism nnd pilferers, and who have In this
instance been meanly imposed upon.
These are days when the average cltl
len wonders why the founders of Scran
ton did not provide for better drainage
and wider sidewalks.
Reed lor Vice President.
An Ingenious argument is made by
the Chicago Times-Herald In favor of
the nomination of Thomus ii. Reed for
vlee president. It contends that the
do-nothing senate "needs a master
hand to guide und control it"; a man
wlio "bus a geulus for parliamentary
law" and Is "a presiding olllcer who
can cut off interminable debate, be con
veniently deaf to pleus of senatorial
courtesy, bring questions to a vote and
dispatch the nation's business with rea
sonable promptness." In its opinion,
"such a mun Is Thomas R. Reed.'1
Our Chicago contemporary takes
pains to dispel the current delusion that
the vice presidency is an unworthy ob
ject of ambition. "Some of our greatest
rtatesmen," It observes, "have adorned
the station, men like John Adams,
Thomas Jefferson, Ueorge Clinton and
Klbridge (Jerry. In the early duys of
the republic only men of presidential
capacity were selected for the place.
and It Is only In late years that It has
been used as a sort of makeshift to
placate a defeated faction or flatter
some section of the country. But this
year particularly the second place on
the ticket demands presidential require
ments, a self-reliant, sturdy, honest
statesman who can be depended on to
bring the deteriorated senate to its
senses. Such a man Is Thomas B.
It Is possible that Mr. Reed will not
specially relish being thus summarily
relegated to a secondary position, while
his flag Is out for the chief office In the
list. Yet the arguments of the Tlmes-
llerald are directly to the point. If
afny man could make the vice-presidency
a live and a vital offlce, Tom Reed
la that man. And we much mistake his
make-up it he would not. In a contln
srency, enjoy four year's of Idol-smash-Ins?

In February of last year, according
to authentic advices from' Madrid,
there were 15,000 Spanish troops In
Cuba. Since then, nine expeditions. In
volving altogether 117,795 men, have
been sent as reinforcements. Vp to
January 1 of this year the direct ex
pense of .the Cuban war to Spain had
been $50,000,000; General Weyler esti
mates that $75,000,000 more -will be re
quired to bring the matter to a satis
factory conclusion, ln-addltlon-to this
direct loss, Spain Is losing $10,O0u,O0O a
year la the falling- off of Cuban custom
bousw revenues, not to speak of the
many millions of dollars' worth of prop
erty which has been destroyed In the
course of the conflict. And, after more
than a year of battle. Spain stands to
day as far from victory us she stood at
the beginning of the revolt. If this Is
not belligerency on the part of the Cu
bans, pray what Is?'
The Scranton Times yesterday after
noon printed without credit The Trib
une prise story, having procured the
type from the sneak thieves who stole
It for the Scranton Republican yes
terday morning. For shame, Brother
Leach for State Chairman.
The formal announcement, by Frank
Willing Leach, of his candidacy for the
state chairmanship to succeed Senator
Quay, was made on Tuesday directly
following a conference between him and
the senator. While there Is yet no pub
lic ussurunce that Air. beach's candi
dacy has Colonel Quay's support, the
probability l strong that It has. Mr.
Leach hus been for years one of the
closest of the senator's lieutenants.
From JSK5 to 1893 he was secretary of
the state committee and from 1888 to
1892 he was usslstant secretary of the
national committee. Last year bo Bur
rendered a 0,000 a year political posi
tion in Philadelphia to take charge of
the detail work of the senator's light
for state chairman, and rendered, it Is
said, invaluable service.
In announcing his candidacy Mr.
Leach, with habitual modesty, says:
"In the campaign of 18S5, when I first
became Identified with the state com
mittee as first asslstunt secretary, our
organization comprised 15,0i)0 voters;
that Is to say, we corresponded with
that number. The work was considered
quite stupendous. In the following
year, when I became chief secretary,
our list embraced 30,000 voters. From
time to time the scope of our work hus
been broadened, until last fall, when we
gathered the fiunies and uddrsses ot
over IO.U00 Republican; In fact, every
Republican voter in the state, except in
three ooimtles. Plli'lnR that cunipuiuli
we spent for postage alone $!.C:N. -of

two-cent stamps, was spent within a
period of forty-elKht hours. 1 am sat

1 shall licit consider the perfection of
organization to have been attained,
however, until the stale committee has
in Its archives the nume.nddress. polities
and vocation of every one of the l.ooO.tHW
voters in Pennsylvania. 1 f made chair
man of the state committee I would
start In within twenty-four hours after
the adjournment of the state conven
tion to gather the data, with the hope
of carrying the state by the largest
majority ever given in a presidential
AVe are not numbered among the en
thusiastic admirers of this young man;
the eye of candor cannot inspect his
past without finding a, good deal of food
for disillusionment. At the same time, it
Is only Just to him to say that he docs
possess an extraordinary capacity for
organizing the lines of political battle,
and Is, in respect to details, a master
of the executive art. Since In politics
one dare not be too finnlcky concerning
the instruments of warfare, It is prob
able that the Republican party could,
at a pinch, endure Leach for chairman;
and if the alternative be William H.
Andrews, wo are prepared to work up
even a little enthusiasm for Leach.'
A military post near Scranton is not
needed for any special public reason;
but no doubt there are other considera
tions, An Old Story.
Some surprise is expressed by a num
ber of state Journals at the character
of the revelations made in the Fllnn
Quay correspondence relative to Alle
gheny county politics. It is assumed In
certain quarters that the counter of
fers of the principals to this epistolary
Interchange to buy, sell and deliver the
political future or the Republican vot
ers of that county, for speellled con
siderations, Is a new thing in politics,
or a thing which has been confined to
any one county or any one state. In
fact, moral homilies of venerated ra
millarlty are uttered upon this special
text with us much unction as if the evil
In question were just discovered.
With due respect for righteousness,
It occurs to us lo remark that politics
will always be oh good as and no bet
ter than the average of those whom It
concerns; nnd that If the mass of voters
wish to continue the sway of men who
trade In their favor, it will avail little
for purists to hold up their hands in
horror at the fact. The stream cannot
rise higher than Its source. The same
may be said of government in general.
In this country the majority have the
reins of power In their own grasp; and
they get, therefore. In the long run, Just
the kind of government that they want,
and neither better nor worse.
When those who do not like the bar-gaiu-and-sale
kind of political manipu
lation will combine together on a prac
tical basis fur the Inauguration by
practical methods of a practicable
change for the better, things will Im
prove. So loug. however, as these bet
ter elements spilt up. bay the moon or
sulk 'despondently In their studios,
things will not. That Is the whole
Georgia paper is unkind enough to
nominate David R. Hill for president.
Come to think of It, drover could thus
get a horrible revenge.
Unfair to McKlnley.
For years the Republicans of Penn
sylvania, seeing Ohio on the r. ne side
and New York on the other furnishing
the majority of the presidential candi
dates to the country, have hoped for a
time when this splendid commonwealth,
the leer of any In natural resources
and the superior of all others In stead
fast, intensifying devotion to Republi
canism, might also have the honor to
present lo the nation a candidate for
president. The occasion and the man
have arrived the occasion, in that no
longer does I he Republican party hn ve
to cater to doubtful states in order to
insure the success of Its electoral tick
et; the man. In tho concededly fore
most director of political agencies nnd
one of the shrewdest and keenest und
most level-headed statesmen In the
Yet what do we see? Already, In
places throughout the state, efforts are
being put forth to sacrifice the claims
of Pennsylvania In behalf of the candi
date of a neighboring state who. If
what his friends nay be true, will not
need Pennsylvania votes In order to se
cure the nomination. State pride, the
Interests of party harmony, everything
which should bind Pennsylvanlans to a
candidate of their own choosing, are
being thrown aside by these people tn
a mad effort to get a place in -what they
assume to be the winning procession.
Politicians with grudges Join with men
of purely emotional enthusiasm In the
delirious attempt to force a repudiation
by rennsylvanians of Pennsylvania's
announced candidate, Matthew Stanley
Let us not be misunderstood. The
Tribune has none but the kindest feel
ing for Major McKlnley. It would sup
port him if nominated with enthusi
astic pleasure. If Pennsylvania, hud no
candidate of Its own. we should prob
ably be for McKlnley now. Rut we con
tern! that It la unfair to the Ohio states
man to put him l;i the light of cnueav
oiing to foment lu other Btutes which
have candidates the disaffection which
hus so of.?n played havoe with the
Ohio delegation. Major McKlnley. we
believe, is too honorable a man to wish
for support which comes over tho pros
trate forms of betrayed competitors cr
to have sympathy for the men wht show
by their actions that they have no
sense of state ;irlde and no fcillng cf
gratitude to the leadership which makes
A sample of tho riyle ct argument
employed by the William H. Andrews
organs Is quoted below. It Is taken
from the Potsvllle Miners' Journal:
"The same little yellow doga are burk
ing at Senator Andiews, now that he
is to be the Kepubllcun state chairman,
that whined at Senator Quay when he
made his great light last s;iininier, and
with the same effect. Aulmala that
cannot bite may be permitted to bark
and howl, since It u muses them and
hurts nobody." This chaste and ele
vated specimen of intellectual activity
id ubont on a par with the mental
capabilities of the subject of Its de
fense. Save the commonwealth!

A desperate war for the Independence of
Cuba PeKaii In IMiS. At tho end of ten years
n treaty ol peace was iiesoliHled between
the leaders of the fuhail people and tSen
erul Campos, Spain's greatest Kcucrul. He
promised all the reforms In government
thut the Cubans desired. Cut every prom
ise was broken; every pledge was violated.
Spain re-established her military govern
ment over all parts of the island: the old
reign of tyranny was resumed. The con
dition of the people grew rapidly worse.
In ISK.'i the consul-general of the I'nlled
Slates at Havanu sent to our secretary ot
slate u report in which he said: "The en
tire population, with the exception of the
otliclal class, are living under a tyranny
unparalleled nt this day on the globe.
There Is a system of oppression nnd tor
ture which enters into every phuse of life,
eats Into the soul of every Cuban, morn
lies, injures, anil Insults him every hour.
Impoverishes him and his faintly from day
to duy, threatens the rich man with bank
ruptcy and the poor man with beggary.
The exactions of the Spanish government
and the Illegal outrages of Its otllcers are.
In fact, intolerable. They have reduced
the Island to despondency and ruin."
The situation of affairs continued to
grow worse. Taxes were higher, the mil
itary government was more oppressive
the Incompetence and dishonesty of the
ollli'lHls nuide them detested. The liberty
loving people of Cuba saw that there was
no hope except in another revolution, to
end, not in a treaty to be broken, but in
complete Independence. Accordingly the
present revolution broke out in February,
1895, a year and a mouth ago. The Insur
gent armies have been remarkably suc
cessful. They huve been able to secure
control of two-thirds of the Island, theugh
there were lOU.OOO Spanish soldiers opposed
to them, under the command of Spain's
ablest general. After the Insurgents had
driven the soldiers of Campos to take ref
uge In the strongly fortified cities, after
his efforts to subdue the rebellion ou the
Hues of civilized warfare had failed, Spain
recalled him, and sent General WeyU-r In
his pluce a man who had no foelinsjs of
humanity, who Is not only a butcher but
u heartless tyrant. Ho began at once lo
Issue prnclnmalloiis that showed that his
character had not been misjudged. One of
the first was a practical duplicate of that
which President (irant and Secretary Fish
regarded hs "Infamous" when It was H
sni'il bv the Count of Vulmncedu lu lsiH.
Utneral Weyler ordered that every mab'
per soil over 15 yeuis of UHe found uwuy
fruni his habitation should be uhot. lie
ordered that all unprotected women should

be insulted by the soldiers of Spain, lie

iliould be burned. He declared Unit those
lu the Insurgent army who did not sur
render wltnln fifteen duys should be lieut

all uhVtrs of tiie Si!inl-h army should b

dersthat they should goi on with the
bulel.u-v and report promptly lo hlni th
chief butcher. It Is c!'-nr that tleneral
Weyler's purpose is to conduct the war In
the same inhuman way lliut made the
war or twenty years ago one of the most
horrible blois on the history of Saln.
On the 19th of September. 1805, the peo
ple of Cuba who are Hiitgitllng lor fi
dem formed a provisional government
under a constitution previously tidoplv-l.
The following ofllctrs were clecled: presl

a tiled patriot who has rendered illsiln

secretary of war was born In Poland, but
went to Cuba, at an early age. In ItsU, at
the head of a number of young men, he
joined the revolutionary army and won

military talent. The assltant secretary of
war Is Mario Menocal, well known In this
