Election Kay, Nov. 3.
After oil. the safest friend that sil
ver has Is the Republican party; and
the people know from experience that
they can trust It.
Why Reed Hesitates.
According to Walter Wellman, the
main reason why Speaker Reed does
not enjoy the present mention of his
name In connection with the vice-presidency
Is not that he scorns the high
compliment Involved, but because he
has ascertained that In the senate thTe
Is a quiet but determined feeling of hos
tility to him which would in all proba
bility render futile the hope that he
might be able to effect a reform In
the senate's parliamentary methods.
This revelation Is said to be the result of
a quiet canvass undertaken a fortnight
ago by some of the speaker's Intimate
In the course of these Inquiries It was
discovered, says Mr. Wellman, that if
, Mr. Reed were elected vice-president
"the moment he occupied the chair
would be a signal for war. He would
from the start be under suspicion as a
man who had come to the senate for
'the express purpose of effecting revolu
, tlon. Unless a great party emergency
were to arise Reed would not have the
sympathy and support even of the Re
publican side of the chamber. If the
majority were to stand by him the rides
could be changed, and Mr. Reed would
like nothing better than to be the In
strument of effecting such a reform.
P.ut under the circumstances there Is a
fear, amounting to conviction, that
from the first moment of hlsi occupancy
of the chair the senate would be in a
conspiracy to make his service there a
failure, to defeat any plans he might
have for changing the rules, and to
whip him Into humble subservience to
the traditions and practices of the
chamber a conspiracy in which many
Republicans would openly or covertly
participate. If there were an even
chance of success in the senate Mr. Reed
would be glad to go In and make the
fight, but he naturally docs not wish to
do so with all the odds against him."
This theory sounds plausible and It
lets the speaker out In much better
form thnn would appear in case he
' should be credited with scorning the
call of his party to the companion
place on the McKinley ticket. But Is
Tom Reed the man to run away? Will
the "czar" of the lower house be scared
by a back-door coalition of the grand
mothers of the senate? Let It be con
ceded that the odds against him would
be greater In tjie senate than they have
boon during his two terms as speaker
of the house. Will not the possibility
of triumph be more Inviting and is not
the challenge thereby made the more
commanding? Here clearly is Reed's
opportunity. We don't believe that he
Is afraid to face it.
The Buffalo papers express surprise
at the loyal support accorded by the
newspapers of Scran ton to the Scranton
ball club. They needn't. All good
Pennsylvanlans believe in protecting
Mark Hanna's Chance.
If the facts are as Major Handy re
lates, we don't wonder that he calls
for a new deal at Republican national
headquarters and Intimates that the
Victorious McKinley organisation will
not rest content until it shall be per
. fected. "In the last campaign," says
he, "I have understood about $2,000,000
was collected, with nothing to show for
the expenditure except a defeated can
didate and a bankrupt treasury. Think
of throwing away $70,000 ut a clip for the
' purchase of the polling-list of a single
state, when anybody could have made
a copy of the list by putting a few type
writers at work. Think of St. Louis
being maced to the amount of $68,000 as
-: the price of being the seat of the next
, convention. No doubt the money was
, owed to somebody and should have been
1 , paid, but with good management there
' should have been no such outstanding
''. , ' The national committee ought to con
duct its business on business principles
" : and be prepared at any time to supply
, ft balance sheet showing Just what It has
done with the money Intrusted to It
The example set by Senator Quay this
year as chairman of the Pennsylvania
state committee in submitting vouchers
and throwing open all campaign ac
counts to the public inspection is a good
one to Introduce to the notice of the next
national chairman. If he shall be Mark
Hanna, as now seems probable, we shall
expect not only a brilliant but also
an honest and economical administra
tion of the finances of the campaign.
The spending of much money for legiti
mate expenses has come to be regarded
in recent years as necessary, but the
campaign of 1896 promises to be excep
tional in more ways than one. The
people can be trusted to elect McKinley
without the need of expensive political
organizations to inform public opinion
and get out the vote.
Would the proposed new Immigration
exclusion law prevent the Toronto ball
club from earning an occasional wal
loping in the United States?
The Matter of Coal.
Upon the hypothesis that "f,w people
stop to think, when they hear of a pros
pective increase In the price of coal. Just
how much it means, figured on the total
output of the country," the Springfield
Union proceeds to effect the necessary
pause by stating, upon the authority of
the geologic survey, that if all the coal
mined last year In the United States
were put Into on train, there would be
5,500,000 cars, which would go one and a
half times round the globe at the equa
tor. "The value of this mass of black
diamonds at the mines," adds our Mas
sachusetts contemporary, "was $197,
C72.477, while the Increase caused by a
rise of 25 cents per ton would mean the
enormous sum of $42.951,1S5.50 extra. In
other words, the coal barons have the
power to pull millions and millions of
dollars annually out of the pockets of
the people simply by a Btroke of the pen.
The statistics show that coal can be
mined at a generous profit, to be sold at
the ordinary prices paid by the con
sumer, and yet the people who own the
mines and the railroads which form the
coal carrying pool can Juggle with the
prices at will despite the fact that there
Is a law to protect the people,"
Perhaps it would Interest the Union
to learn that coal Is something which
cannot be sown and harvested every
year; that coal In general and anthra
cite coal in particular, Is a commodity
the limit of which Is already in sight;
that every ton mined ought by virtue
of a fundamental commercial law to
make more valuable the ton which is
unmlned, since It decreases the supply
and Increases the demand; and that
only Idiots would, from choice, sell so
valuable and so limited an article at
less than Its cost price. The extra twenty-five
cents a ton which necessity
forces the "baron" to add, from time to
time, as the visible supply decreases, to
the wholesale price represents little or
nothing to the individual consumer, who
uses probably not more than five or six
tons of anthracite certainly not on an
average more than ten tons a year. If
j It were to Alter through to him at all as
an extra retail cost, which nine times in
ten it does not, it would not represent at
the utmost more than the value of one
day's labor. To the "baron," however,
It means the significant difference be
tween batikruptcy and a fair return; to
his workmen, it means unsteady work
at poor wages, with the prospect of no
work at all or steady work at good
wages, and to the community near the
mines It means stagnation or prosperity,
The people who live in the coal fields are
willing to pay a living price for the cot
ton and woolen goods they buy from
New England; may they not with rea
son expect a return of the compliment?
If Mr. Reed Is sincere in wishing to
retire to private life for a time In order
to accumulate a fortune, we beg to as
sure htm that the latch-string of Scran
ton Is on the outside.
Although disclaiming any personal
anxiety for vice-presldentlal honors,
Senator Proctor, of Vermont, gives ex
pression to a timely and sensible
thought when he says: "It is unfortu
nate that the character of the office of
vice-president should be such that very
few men desire it and it is usually ap
portioned solely with the Idea of adding
strength to the ticket. This, In my opin
ion, should be remedied. At present the
vice-president has no voice in the ad
ministration and it certainly would not
be amiss to give him a seat in the cabi
net." Representation in the cabinet would
be the least of the additions which are
needed to the duties and honors of the
vice-presidency. As that position now
stands, it is the one notoriously weak
spot In our form of government the one
mistake in the otherwise accurate and
far-sighted calculations of the framers
of the constitution, Whether it can be
remedied or not Is a question. That
there Is need for an extension of its
cowers may, however, yet be the means
of securing such an extension, by cour
tesy If not by law.
About the only important result of the
Huntingdon county primaries is that a
large amount of factional Ill-feeling has
been engendered to little or no practt

that the Philadelphia syndicate which is
putting Wanamaker forward as the
leader In its new1 fight on Quay need ex

way In the Interior counties; but It can
hardly be regarded as having any direct
bearing on the. question of Senator Cam

FOR SECOND PLACE.
"I'enn," In Philadelphia Bulletin.
Governor Huntings la not unlikely to be
a very prominent tlgure in tho St. Louis
convention. Indeed, there is more thnn
a possibility that he will be placed on the
ticket for vice-president. Ho has written
his speech placing Quay before the con
vention us a presidential candidate, nnd
yuuy Is willing that he shull deliver It.
Nobody can perform nn ornamental func
tion of tills kind mote impressively in he
Klght of a convention than Hustings. His
Hist conspicuous appearance in stute poll,
tics ten years uko wus us a speech-maker
in the convention which nominated his
friend Beaver for governor a second time.
That speech gave him a stute reputation
nnd druw attention to him as one of the
younger men in the party who seemed to
give promise of a future. At the Chicago
convention of 1888 he carried off the orator
ical honors of the occasion in the speech
nominating John Sherman for the presi
dency. The governor's speeches are bet
ter when listened to than read. His big
stature, his ringing voice, his open face
and his sincere manner go a long way to
Impress the multitude even In the utter,
unce of the veriest commonplaces. He will
be pretty sure to exploit Quay at St. Louis
In his most heroin strain and 'to step off
the platform as one of the convention's
There Is now reason for believing that
Hastings' name will be presented for the
vice-presidency, and his Quay speech will
thus give him the opportunity to project
his personality before the convention to
udvantage. Quay has caused to be put In
circulation the usual hints and rumors
which prececd the definite announcement
of his plans. Early In tho week some of
his friends threw out Intimations that
Hastings would be considered for second
place; later later on Quay himself said he
would like to see the governor on the
ticket, and some of the Quay men here
now expect to see him agreed upon by tho
Pennsylvania caucus at St. Louis us the
formal candidate of the delegation. It is
generally believed thnt Reed will put his
foot down flat on all overtures to save
the place for him; tho growing feuds In
New York, together with the fact that It
has three or four candidates in prospective
are likely to rule out the Empire state
altogether, and in this event Hastings
would bo the strongest of the eastern men
that would be available. Tho contlnguity
of Pennsylvania to Ohio would hardly be
a sufllclelit objection, as each Is geograph
ically and politically recognized as tho
state of u different section. In lStiS Grant
and Colfax came from adjoining states In
the same section, Illinois and Indiana. If
Quay shall make the nomination of Hast
ings one of his special purposes at St.
Louis, and with Reed out of tho field, the
chances will be decidedly In favor of his
To put Hastings In the vlce-presidenjy
would be to give Quay complete control at
Harrisburg of Capitol Hill. The resigna.
tlon of Hastings next winter would make
Walter Lyon governor, and Quay has had
no follower who has been more loyal than
Lyon. The governor would thus be out of
the way as a focus for any fresh mis
chief In the future at Harrisburg, and the
task of controlling 'the next legislature
would be much simplllleJ. Remembering
some of the events which were taking
place In Pennsylvania only ten months
ago. It will somewhat ludicrous to politi
cians with enough sense of humor to m
Joy the tips und downs of politics, to see
Hastings two weeks hence roaring to the
heavens the virtues of Quay and Quay
passing around the word for Hastings as
a candidate for the tail of the McKinley
THE COUNTRY !N POLITICS.
From the Rochester Post-Express.
The Chicago News makes an interstlng
assertion In the statement that "It Is on
of the most singular facts In our political
history that all of our presidents have
.been from the country rather than from
the cities." Washington came from a
Virginia plantation; Adams from what
wus then the village of Qulncy, Mass.;
Jefferson resided at his country seat at
Montieello, Ya.; Madison was a country
gentleman residing at Montpeller In the
same state; Monroe was a rural resident;
the younger Adams lived In Qulney, us
his father had; Jackson was a Tennessee
farmer, residing at the Hermitage, his
country seat; Van Buren was from Kinder
hook on the Hudson; Polk resided In Nash
ville, then a small town; Taylor's home
was at Baton Rouge, a little place, prin
cipally military post, on the Mississippi;
Pierce came from the village of Con
cord, N. H.; Buchanan lived at Wheat
land; Lincoln lived at Hprlngfleld, a place
or about 9.UU0 inhabitants in 18C0; Grant
came from Galena; Hayes lived at Fre
mont, a small town In Ohio, and Garfield
was from the vlliaga of Mentor. Cleve
land, to be sure, came from Buffalo, and
Harrison from Indianapolis, but neither
of these are cities of the first rank.
It Is said that history shows the same
phenomenon In the choice of governors
of the states, and for many years few of
the leaders in congress have come from
the large cities. Among aspirants to the
presidency, McKinley, who promises to be
the Republican leader, lives In a small
Ohio town; and In the past, Douglas, Sey
mour, Greeley, Tllden and Cooper, of
whom all failed to. win the prize, camo
from cities. It seems to be an lnvtolable
a rule as there can be In politics that the
highest spoils of office do nnt fall to the
residents of great cities. And In this re
spect politics .reverses, the general, for-
mula governing the rewards of Ufa To
S&la national distinction in business, tn
law. theology, or medicine ona must live
in a great city; one must have the broad
field, the wide clientage, the vast oppor
tunities that the city affords. One may
lay the foundation of his successful career.
In profession or business, in a little town;
but be must emigrate, must needs bo
'discovered,' led out, and given a chance
In a city to show what is In him. That Is
why, or one reason why, here is a steady
drift of population from country to city;
ambitious youth is seeking Its broader
field. But the rule utterly fails in politics;
its reverse there holds good.
It may be that popular opinion stilt looks
upon the cities at hotbeds of vice, centers
of wickedness and corruption, while it
romantically considers the country a
stronghold of virtue and honesty, and,
because probity in high office is demand
ed, looks with often unjust, but always
blasting, suspicion on the residents of
cities who claim recognition. Very like
ly the feeling Is unconscious, and where,
as in a profession, we can recognize- a
man's talents without thought of his
morals, there is no line drawn against
the cities. It may be, U. that there is
potency In the underlying satisfaction
which each Instance of national honors
heaped on a deserving rustic gives, as a
living example of the equality theory of
our constitution and of the triumph of real
democracy. We cater to the feeling in
the "log cabin" and "rail-splitting" phras
es, in the "hard cider" and "coon skin"
campaigns, even tn the cartoons of the
villager, "Uncle Sam." Perhaps now tho
feeling is passing with the growth of our
cities, and our last presidents have como
from fair-sized places, but thus far tho
circumstance that as a nation we are a
country people, country born or of country
parentage, has had a great influence on
the people's political history. Bryce, In
his "American Commonwealth." says that
the farmers "arc, if not numerically the
largest class, at least the class whose Im
portance is most widely felt."
HAISK THE SALARY.
Handy, In the Times-Herald. .
The time is ripe for restoration of the
vice-presidency to Its pristine dignity and
Importance. That dignity can never be re
stored without the selection of some euch
man as Thomas B. Reed, and no such man
can be nominated except tinder phenome
nal conditions as to the first place now
prevailing. The next step should be the
Increase of the salary of the vice-president
to $25,000 a year, and that should be done
by the Republican congress at Its session
next winter with the approval of President
Cleveland, who knows by experience and
close observation what sort of vice-presidents
the country has under the present
haphazard way of choosing Incumbents of
GKOVKR FEELS SOKE.
Wellman, In the Tir. es-llerald.
President Cleveland Is disgusted with
polities, public life, politicians, the people
and everything, and he sometimes express
es his opinions In language more forcible
than eloquent. "I shull be glad to get
away from Washington," he said recent
ly to a caller; "the whole country seems
determined to use me for a spittoon."
