Republican county convention. Pri
maries for the election of delegates will

Importance of this convention Is en
hanced bythe fact that It will ehoopo
not only candidates for county com
missioners nnd auditors, but also a can-
dldate to represent tills district In the
Fifty-fifth conpress. It would be well
to preserve for further reference the

Wllihm E. Russell.

sudden death is chronicled in our news
columns, has for several years stood in
much the same relation In which Wil
liam Jennings Rryan now stands to the

West Mr. Russell locked half n year
of belnrj 40 years old. At twenty he had
completed a collegiate course nt Har
vard; nt US he was chosen mayor of his
hntive city, Cambridge, um three years
letor he received the Democratic nomi
nation for governor of Massachusetts,
trite defeat which followed would have
extinguished an ordinary career; in his
ense It simply accelerated It onward to
new triumphs. The following state
campaign saw him elected governor;
nnd after one re-elcrtlon he retired to
take a prominent part In the battle fur
the gold standard at Chicago. Had the
gold forces won, he and not Hryan
might and probably would have been
The distinguished characteristics of
Mr. Russell's public activities in a po
litical direction have been 4il9 loftiness
of Ideals, his sincerity of purpose and
his courage. He was a Democrat whom
Republicans could respect. He believed
what he said; he fought fairly and in
the open, and he shirked no conse
quence. Reared within the shadow of
Harvard nnd educated within her
walls, he was in some things a theorist
rather than a utilitarian. The text
books lauded free trade as the logical
condition in an Ideal republic, and he
followed the text bookd. Hla eye could
not take In the visible facts which
point to Protection as the essential re
quisite of a nation like our own. But
In his economic error he was high-minded
and honest. He carried In his cam
paigns enthusiasm and eloquence
guarded always by chivalry. He was
it knight at argument and he scorned
low Intriguo -and tricks.
Nevertheless, his temperament wa9
Impetuous, and a signal Illustration of
this fact comes to mind with almost
tragic distinctness. The leading ar
ticle In this month's Forum was writ

son, made for the guidance . of Cerao-
cracjr at Chicago. In It occur these
words, now sounding: more like irony
than the creed of a young and ardent
apostle filled to the full with enthusiasm

The death of an honest man Is always
a national loss. William Eustls Rus
sell was more than an honest man; he
was an honest and an able man. He
lived true to his convictions and he dies
all too soon.
Mr. Bryan is undoubtedly a very
earnest young man; but the harder one
works who Is working the wrong way,
the greater the mischief done.

The Soinnton limes denies that It fa
vors fret trude. Doesn't It Indorse the
Eryan and the Farmer.
Tho. Erie Dlsputeh, published In a dis
trict which sufi'ern keenly from Canad
ian computiti'jn in certain agricultural
products, lias been looking Into the
facts as to Mr. Bryan's repeatedly pro
claimed solicitude for the American
farmer. It does not 11ml In his short
record .13 a public man any evidence
that he really cares for the welfare
of the farmer; on the contrary, it cites
formidable proof that he seems to pre
fer the Interests of foreign to domestic
As a member of the ways and means
committee which drafted the Wilson
bill, Mr. Bryan made a special hobby
of freo wool. Well, foee wool was
adopted. What was the effect? Half
of our domestic flecks had to be sent to
the butchery. Two-thirds of our wool
supply was imported. The loss to the
American farmer from free wool alone
ran up Into tho tens of millions.
Under tho last year of the McKlnley
tariff there wvre exported from this
country 4749,5S6 bushels of barley.
Under Mr. Bryan's low tariff the ex
ports fell in one year to 1,5.'.6.715 bushels,
a loss of 3,00,000 bushels or $1,500,000.
On the other hand while the barley
exports were declining under a practi
cal exemplification of the Bryan Idea
of a tariff for revenue only, the Imports
of this cereal wf re steadily growing. In
1894 wo imported only 791,061 bushels of
barley. In 1S93. we imported 2,116,816
bushels. The American farmer lost
this difference. The Bryan Btyleof tar
iff mulcted him In the case of barley
Again, as the, Dispatch points out,
"the Imports of Vattle free of duty in
1895 Increased to the value of 94,000.
Those in which a reduced duty under
the Wilson bill was paid, increased In
value 633.000, nearly $7,0.000 of a di
rect loss to our farmers caused by open
ing wide the doors to foreign competi
tion by Mr. Bryan's able assistance.
The .lumber of American cattle from
1SH4 to 1896 decreased 4,000,000 head,
owing chiefly to these heavy Imports.
Flour exports fell off $25,000,000 from
1893 to 1895. Supposing we had that?
Would not that heip per capita cir
culation? For instance In 1892, under
McKlnley prices, January 1, the market
price of No. barley was B"Vi cents.
Under the McKinley law sugar was then
worth 4 cents a pound so that a bushel
of barley would buy MVt pounds of su
gar. January 1, 1S96 under the Wibon
law barley was worth 32 cents and
the same sugar 6 cents a pound. Then
a bushel of barley would buy 6 pounds
of sugar, less than half what It would
As a final illustration of the Insincer
ity of Mr. Bryan's, solicitude for the
farmer, let us take the case of hay,
hides and hop3. The McKlnley tariff
on hay was $4 a ton. The Bryan Idea
was $2 a ton. In 1893 the domestic hay
product at McKlnley prices was worth
$."0,8S2,872. 'In 1895, under Bryan's
prices, it was worth only a little over
$400,000,000. the falling off having been
due very largely to importations from
Canada. In 1895, under the Wilson
Bryan tariff more hides to the extent
of $20,000,000 worth were Imported than
were imported during the final year of
the McKlnley tariff. In the matter of
hops, Importations grew from 82S.022
pounds under the McKlnley Idea to
3,1.13,664 pounds under the Bryan idea,
and the price of the home product was
cut almost In half.
It Is a conservative judgment to es
timate the total loss inflicted on Amer
ican agriculture by the recent working
of the Bryat tariff Idea at $650,000,000,
or. In round numbers $50 per capita to
very farmer. Suppose the farmers
of this country bad. this loss restored
to them In crisp cash. Would they want
any such risky experiment as free sli
ver coinage? Not a bit of it.
The latest organised Democratic bolt
is way out In Missouri. It Is nice for
Bryan to talk about Invading the cap
italistic East, but If he wants to have
a corporal's guard in the next electoral
college he had better watch hla fences
in the Popullstlc West.
lit.- ti-xt cnato
One f.f the argumtr.ls employed In
?i;.port of t!-e silver movcrx-nt is that
v-.n thrilled McKlnley fl'.f.uld be b i't
. I. ihe ; i.atc would for f'jur y 'r re
nuiln in cciiiro! of the silver f.irres, tntis
effectually checkmating any attempt at
tariff revision except when coupled with
a free coinage rider. This argument is
used on Republicans who aro friendly
to silver but also devoted to Protection.
The Cleveland World explodes It by
pointlng cut that there are four states
where It seems that Republican sena
tors will next year Bucceed Democratic
members. This does not include Ohio and
Maryland, where Republican senators
have already been chosen to replace De
mocrats. The four states are New
York, Wisconsin, Indiana and Illinois,
and In each of them a Republican gain
is almost as good as assured. The
World adds: "Counting t hose as among
the certainties, we still have Kansas,
South Dakota and Missouri, where Re
publicans will not unlikely be elected to
succeed Pef:er, Kyle and Vest, all Dem
ocrats. Thus by counting the four
states first mentioned as certain to be
represented by Republican senators in
the FHly-llfth congress, and permitting
tho vacancies in Kentucky and Deln
ware to balance each other, the senate
which President McKlnk-y would have
to deal with would stand: Republicans,
47; combined opposition, 43."
But this Is not all the story. By the
time McKlnley shall be nicely settled In
the White house. Pennsylvania will
have choson a sound meney Rvpubll
i.an to succeed J. Donald Cameron, who
Is now numbered among the free sil
ver obstructionists of the upper cham
ber. Consequently there remains noth
ing whatever of the claim that tho sll
vttites will bo enabled. In spile of pub
lie opinion,' to hold up Protective legis
lation in the next congress. The al
ready patent fact Is that if the sound
money forces pull together and fight
with precision, the silver monometaH'sts
will be defeated with great slaughter
all along the line.
Few newspapers have risen to an
emergency so well as did the Washing
ton Post during the recent presence In
its city of the Christian Endeavor con
vention. The Chicago Democratic con
vention, which was in simultaneous
progress, made an extraordinary de
mand upon the newspapers of all cities;
but the Post not only reported every
feature of it fully and finely but also
dally gave from ten to twelve pages
over to the visiting Endeavorites. It
was a new demonstration of what can
be done in a live newspaper office when
the right men have direction of Its en
ergies. "It is desirable," says Senator John
Sherman, "to have more silver money,
but the Chicago platform docs not point
out the safe way to get it." Silver can
not be coined without limit at an ar
tificial price without the coiner of it
sooner or later getting hurt.
The trouble with Mr. Bryan is that
his facility of speech runs way ahead
of his capacity for digested thinking.
THE .MAX I'OK CONGRESS.
From the Olyphant Record.
From present Indications, William Con
nell will be the nominee of the Republi
cans of this district for congressman next
term. This Is the choice of the party
leaders In and outside of the city of Scran
ton, and the rank and tile of tho party
are confident that the beat Interests of
both local and notional af.'airs will be safa
In his hands. He is a gentleman widely
known and possesses great influence In
state affairs. He Is without question the
best mm that can be sent to Washington
from this district.
Mr. Connell started In life as a poor
boy, and has successfully passed through
all the various stages of life, from pov
erty to affluence. He knows what It la
to work for others, and well remembers
the rights and wants of the worklngman.
Gradually and steadily did he advance
from the position of employe to that of
employer, and Ihe rich experience Inci
dent to the ascension of an honest work
lngman, is possessed by him. This en
ables Mr. Connell to understand the an
thracite regions as no other person, dif
ferently situated, ever can; and it pre
eminently qualifies him to represent the
anthracite rettlon In congress.
William Connell Is an extensive em
ployer today, and Invariably, he is a friend
of the employes, who can at all times find
freo acte.'s to him whenever they have
demands to make or complaints to pre
sent. He has unfeigned sympathy with
the employed and never In time of dilfl
culty have they found him wanting In
those qualities that relieve human suffer
ing and make the burdens of life easier to
bear. Dcing thus In close touch with tho
laboring men of our anthracite regions,
he understands their wants, comprehends
their difficulties and knows their political
tendencies In national affairs, which qiial
illeatlons are essential In our representa
tive in Washington.
Mr. Connell has also been closely Identi
fied with the development of northeastern
Pennsylvania. His genial qualities and
manly character aro known throughout
this county and the prominence thrust
upon him by leading men In the state hat
brought him to th? vnn In state affairs.
He Is the best qualified gentlemun in th4
district to be sent to the house ofTepre
scntetlves, and the Interests of the pnrty
will be best served by nominating him for
congress in the August convention,
Prom the New York Sun.
Sev.-iral correspondents have asked us
to explain what the free coinage of silver
means; nnd, generally, what effect legis
lation establishing It would have uprii
the business of the country. We unswor,
that It means that every owner or pur
chaser of silver bullion shall be permitted
to bring it to the mint, In unlimited
quuntites, and huve it coined, free of
charge. Into dollars, ach containing S7HI
grains of pure silver and 41Vt grains of
copper, or 412 grains altogether, which
dollais shall be a legal tender equally with
gold coin. As the gold dollar contains
13.22 grains of pure gold, and. with 2.58
grains of copper alloy added, 25.S grains,
the silver dollar weighs 10 t!ms as much
as a gold dollar, and the raUo between
them Is, therefore, said to be 16 to 1.
' Ths effect upon business of the adoption
of this coinage scheme would be to maka
dollars containing a little over three
quarters o an ounce of pure silver, each,
equal In debt-paying power to gold dol
lars. An ounce of pure silver containing
480 grains can now be bought for about
cents. Since the sliver dollar would cost
only about three-quarters of that amount
or, say, S3 to 63 cents. While It would pay
debt's as well as the gold dollar we have
now. nobody would take It on the same
footing In payment for fresh purchases of
goods or for labor. Nor could we use it
shroud on eiual terms with yo ' In pur
chasing goods to import. Co: which
now costs 10 cents per pound I cost
2a cent": raw sugsr would cost i;ts lr

Ing on endless confusion and conflict
would prevail; and, In the end, nobody
would be benefited, except the men who
happened to owe money when It began,
and what they gained would be so much
lost to their creditors.
THE SPIRIT OF UNREST.
From the Buffalo Enquirer.
The spirit of unrest and d!sconte-.!t that
did so much to nominate and elect Mr.
Cleveland in li02 Is behind Eryan. Then
the war cry that arrayed class against
class and section cgaiiiEt section was,
"JJown with the Robber Darotis of Pro
tection!" Now there is added to this hos
tility to the protected industries u fiercer
hostility to the moneyed Interests. Then
the crusaJo was against trusts, monop
olies, nnd "the Icy yoke and iron heel" r.f
the manufacturer. Now It Is against the
bunker and the bondholder as well. Then
tne how I for a cheap dinner pall for the !a.
borer rang through the land; now the
slogan In his behalf Is a cheap dollar. Our
sympathies are genuinely with the masses
and against the classes; but we do not be
lieve In preaching syelul war every four
years merely to get a certain lot of poli
ticians Into office.
AFTER THE LANDLORDS.
From the Wllkes-Ur.rre Hecorl.
The man who kmnvlncly rents property
tor imii'.oral purposes Is not a whit bdt
t?r than libs wretched tenants. Indeed he
la more reprehensible, especially If he
poses in the community us a reputable
man and professor of Christianity. No
leniency should he shown those who un
der thu cloajt of morality promote vies
ami provide a home for thesj who mrrke
a trade of immorality. Ths movement in
Scianton will be watched with a trood deal
of Interest not only lit that city but else
