While In the nature of things the
Third legislative district may safely
be called Republican, no effort snould
be spared by the Republican voters in
that district to elect Hr. X. C. Maekey
by an unusually largo majority. The
reasons Cor this advice are numerous,
In the first place, Dr. Maekey has been
for yeiVs nn active and enthusiastic
Republican, who has served his party
without expectation of reward. .Now
ths.1 th? occasion has arisen fo. the
parly to reciprocate, fairness suggests
that It do so ungrudgingly and ev?n
Rut more important than any per
sonal consideration is the fact that his
i iK tlon would not only Insure capable
representation of ths district at Har
risbi'.UT but It would also help to swell
the fTt:;eral volume of Republican
triumph which Is necespary one week
fium next 't'ui sday. As the Pittsburg
Times ivttlnently remarks In a Flmllar
i oiiiv.-i ti "it. 'Republicans are now in a
l-ofit;."n lo rout the cohorts of repudia
tion n"d (K-based currency nil along
the line, horse, foot and dragoons, and
tr.ey s-hof.ld not endanger the complete
ness of their victory by any concessions
Uepul ller.i! interests, local and na
tional, lire all In one boat. They can
rot safely be divided. Thf party can
not be weakened at any one place with
1 ut being weakened all over. No chain
Is stronger than Its weakest link. Not
i.nly Is it the duty of the frl 'nds of Pro
tect ion find sound money to elect Mc
Kinley and a Republican congress, but
it is as just as clearly their duty, as the
parties are now aligned, to strengthen
the Republican organization in local
contests. Tn this way only can they
put an end to the inlluence typified by
i'.ryan, for when the free silverltes see
that they cartiot capture oflice by at
tacking the foundations of public pros
perity they will abandon that line of
campaigning nnd select one less mem
aclng to the common weal.
We nijital in Dr. Jlackey's behalf to
Democrats as wall as Republicans.
Nothing la to be gained by the former
In the election of a free Bilverite as
ptate representative. It would only en
courage the men who are backing the
Iiryan campaign. The way things now
stand, there is no middle ground be
tween these who want to strengthen the
sound money position and those who
want to weaken It. Why, then, should
not all Democrats who believe In the
irtliK nces repn ;ented in this campaign
by the Republican ticket give their
support to that ticket as a whole, both
on the national Issues and in the local
aspects of the campaign?
When you come to think that Ohio
stove factory's 10-per-cent.-wage-ln-crease-!f-l!ryan-ls-elected
over, it crows much clearer. Since
free silver would virtually cut wages
50 per cent., the Newark factory could
restore 10 per cent, and still be i per
cent, ahead on the deal.
The Baker Ballot.
The disposition to poke fun at the
expansive proportions of the Baker bal
lot breaks out every year about this
time; and this being presidential year,
with the ballot larger than ever, the
raillery Is naturally keener than usual.
But after all, It must be admitted by
those who are disposed to be fair In
the premises that the Baker ballot,
notwithstanding its defects, is a good
deal better than the ballot which it
superseded. We fully concur in the
judgment of the Pittsburg Times when,
in discussing this very subject, it says:
"The electors of Pennsylvania have
used the Baker ballot for several years,
and it does not appear that any con
siderable number of them were un
able to comprehend it. It la a ponder
ous affair, but It is in no sense compli
cated; there is every opportunity for
making a careful study of It before
hand by means of the sample ballot,
and any one who can read can easily
understand it and vote Intelligently
and accurately, whether he wants to
vote a straight ticket or desires to In
dulge in scratching. It Is nut at all
different this year from what it was
in former years, and though it is large
the voter van easily And what he is
looking for. In the past there have been
very few more ballots thrown out for
informality than was the case under
the old law, and there is no reason to
believe that the voters are any less In
telligent now than they were last year
or the year before. There is no need
for any one to fear that the big ballot
In going to give him trouble or interfere
with his voting Just ns he wants to.'"
Every year of use lessens the Uabll-;
Uy to mistake. On the principle of the
greatest good to the greatest num-
ler, even If a few voters are yet con
fused by It the freedom from espionage
and meddlesome Interference which It
vouchsafes to the great majority of
citizens stamps it as a decided Improve
ment. It isn't perfect, by a good deal;
and when the proper time comes we
shall renew our demand for further
legislative amendment in, the direction
of additional secrecy; but let It not be
inferred because the jokers occasion
ally poke fun at it that it is not a good

Will Keep Their Eyes Open.
The office of county auditor is gener
ally regarded as of minor Importance;
and while so long as the fiscal affairs
f the county are in honest Republican
hands there is usually small need of
extraordinary vigilance In, this olllcp,
it nevertheless requires business ability,
quickness of perception and n knowl
edge of accounts ail of a high order.
It resembles in many respects the func
tions of the watchman at the railway
crossing. It isn't expected that tilings
will go wrong and thnt trains will run
Into each other, but It Is better to have
a clear-headed and reliable man In the
signal tower than to take chances with
a careless one.
The candidates for auditor named on
the Republican ticket, A. K. Klefer and
Fred I,. Ward, are bright and wide
awake young men, both versed In book
keeping and both familiar with the kind
of work which the auditorship involves.
They would be something more than
mere figureheads in the ofliee. They
would continually keep an eye out for
mistakes or Irregularities in the ac
counts which would come under their
inspection, nnd if there should happen
to lie any errors, they would catch them.
The large majority of the taxpayers of
the county want that kind of security
In the auditors' office, and that is why
they will vote eleven days hence for
Messrs. Klefer and Ward.
On next Tuesday evening, one week
before election, there will be a parade
In this city of every Republican club in
Lackawanna county. It will be the
banner demonstration of the campaign
and all who can should arrange early to
get In lino.
"Government by Injunction."
A considerable portion of Governor
Altgeld'B New York speech was devoted
to a statement of his objections to
"government by injunction." Among
other things he said:
1 huve not time to point out the alarming
encroachments and usurpations of the
federal courts since the days of Jefferson.
1 vi;l only call attention to their most
recent uml astounding pretension und
ii.-uilintion of power. During the last
decade they huve established a form of
government that is government by in
junction, under which the federal judge
becomes at once legislator, Judge an I
executioner, gluing in his chambers nnd
without notice to anybody he issues u
ukase, which he calls an Injunction,
imainst all the people of a state, forbid
ding anything that he sees lit to forbid
nnd which the law does not forbid, for
when the law forbids a thing there is no
need of an injunction. When the law Is
violated provision has been made for
punishment, and if it is found at any time
to be innileiiuate It can always be remedied
by legislation, iiut by this Injunction he
jinlgo can forbid anything which whim,
prejudice or caprice may suggest, und his
order Is Inw and must stand until It Is re
versed by a superior authority, anil this
may take months ami even years; and
when any Individual disregards this in
junction he la arrested by the United
ntutcs marshal ami dragged to the point
where the court is held, sometimes a dis
tance of u hundred or a hundred and fifty
miles, away from his friends, on a charge,
not of committing a crime, not of violat
ing the law, but on a charge of being
guilty of contempt of court that is, of
having disregarded the judge's Injunction;
and he is tried, not by a Jury, as guaran
teed by the constitution und laws of the
land, not according to the forms of law
even, but ho is tried by the same judge
whose dignity he Is charged with having
offended, und then he Is gent to prison in
definitely, lla'd he committed a murder
or a heinous crime, had he violated the
law in a flagrant manner, he would have
been entitled to be tried by a Jury, t.o
cording to the forms of law, and In the
county where the offense was commltited,
and where he could produce bis witnesses,
but not so when he Is guilty of showing a
want of respect for the order of a Judge
which was made outside of the law and
In violation of the constitution.
The governor charged that Judge Jen
kins Issued an Injunction forbidding the
employes of the Northern Pacific rail
road from quitting work when their
wages were reduced; that Judge Ross
In California issued an injunction com
pelling railroad employes to go to work;
that JudgM Wood and Grosscup Issued
a number of Injunctions under which
4,402 United States deputy marshals ar
rested about 450 men for contempt, and
that nearly all these men had to be.dis-
charged because nothing could be prov
en against them. Governor Altgeld in
sisted these judges "legislated, judged
and executed," and he added:
Formerly, when n man charged with
contempt liled an affidavit purging himself
of the contempt, thut Is, denying it, the
matter eiuietl. All that could be done
was to prosecute him for perjury tf he
had sworn- to what was not true. Hut
after thus purging himself he could not
be tried for contempt by the very judge
whose dignity ho was charged with hav
ing offended. In other words, when a man
denied his guilt he could not be sentenced
to prison without a trial by Jury. But
this projection of the citizen is now
brushed away with a meru wave of the
hand. The citizen is robbed of a trial bv
Jury, and he Is tried by th Judge for
whom ne is alleged to have shown a- w.mt
of respect, and Is sent to prison Indefinite
ly. A mere glanco at this Invasion shows
that government by Injunction Is Incom
patible with republican institutions, and
if It is to be sustained then there is an
end to trial by Jury tn our country, nnd
instead of being governed by law we will
be subject to government by judges; and
If government by Injunction is to be sus
tained as to federal Judges, then we will
soon have It on the part of state Judges,
and the very foundations of free institu
tions will have disappeared. These In
junctions are outside of the regular ma
chinery of government; so far ns they aro
outside of the law they are usurpations,
and where they aro not usurpations they
are wrong, because the constitution has
created other machinery to enforce tha
tn these remarks there is much truth.
The Republican party has not defended
the arbitrary use by federal judges of
the contempt prerogative. Although In
the cases cited above It was put forth
,ln til? Interest of the public welfare
and had for Its purpose the prevention
of an abrupt and arbitrary stoppage of
Interestate commerce, It was so far
questionable In .method that a Repub
lican senator (Mr. ThurBtori, of Ne
braska), Introduced at the last session
of the United States senate and the
senate by a practically unanimous vote
of both parties passed a bill providing
that where arrests are made for con
tempt of federal courts in disobedience
of injunctions relating to Interstate
commerce, the accused shall be entitled
to a trial by jury, with right to em
ploy counsel and summon witnesses.
This bill did not reach the house in
time to become a law at that session,
but if is sure to become one soon after
congress re-assembles, because there is
virtually no opposition to it.
The point on which we take Issue
with Governor Altgeld is not, then, as
to the Justice of "government by In
junction," the faults in which are In a
fair way to be remedied by congress
acting without partisan bias; but as to
the propriety of using this issue so ns
to give encouragement to every law
breaker In the land, and hope to every
inlluence which alms at the tearing
down of our social structure. No one
defends arbitrary and Inequitable ac
tion by judges passing on contempt;
nobody proposes lo sacrillce reasonable
liberty on the judicial aliar. Why,
then, pretend that a great peril Is In
view? Why rise a scare cry? Why
foam and froth at the mouth? All this
Is the mechanism of demagoguery. It
Is the "business' of the political com
edian, whose objective point Is not Jus
tice, but votes. We deny tha right of
John P. Altgeld, the pardoner of the
Chicago anarchists, to pose as the
particular champion of Justice nnd civil
rights; we challenge his credentials as
a safe guide to wholesome amendment
of the functions of the judiciary; In
other words, we brand as spurious his
pretensions and denounce him as an
Impostor. To such as be the American
people do not have to look for guidance?
In the preservation of their liberties.
They prefer the leadership of JlcKln
ley, Harrison, Reed, Sherman, Cullom
and Allison, men whose political char
acter backs up their political preten
sions, and whose public actions lend
weight to their counsel.
"On the result next month depends
whether we shall hang our heads with
shame because our country has become
the dupe and willing prey of dishon
est demagogues, because we have an
nounced that we do not wish to pay
our just debts, because we have an
nounced that we do not wish to enforce
our laws and are willing to count the
national honor as nothing in the bal
ance again successful trickery; or else
we shall stand prouder than ever of
our citizenship in that great republic
whose boast it has been that at last
this nation, alone of all nations through
tho ages, has solved the problem of
preserving orderly liberty, of standing
stoutly for the rights of the individual,
while yet being careful to allow no man
to be' wronged, and of guarding with
jealous care that national honor which
can be seriously hurt only, by our own
folly or our own weakness. No other
nation can harm us If only we are
true to ourselves, but we shall deserve
all the misfortune that will surely over
take us if we surrender ourselves Into
the control of pandcrers to dishonesty
and disorder." Theodore Roosevelt.
Campaign managers all agree that
this year there is an unusually large
element among the voting population
which declines to label Itself for the
guidance of the guessers, and the Popo
crats exultantly aver that this element
is going like an avalanche for Bryan.
But why? When a voter keeps still it
is a sign that he is thinking. Thinking
results usually In the sifting of truth
from fallacy. Bryan, Inasmuch as'he
stands for notorious fallacies, has far
greater reason to dread this ominous
silence among the thoughtful wage
earners of the country than McKinley
has. It bodes him no good.
If the Times wants to quote Secretary
Carlisle on the redemption of the silver
dollar in gold, why doesn't It reproduce
his letter of six weeks ago, In which he
said If It ever became necessary to pre
serve all our dollars at a parity, as re
quired by law and dictated by national
prudence, fairness and honor, the gov
ernment would not hesitate to exchange
gold coin directly for silver?
Herman If. Kohlsaat, the editor of
the Chicago Tlmcs-Herald and the man
who foretold just what McKinley would
do at the Illinois primaries last spring,
now says McKlnley's plurality In that
state will be 200,000. His guess is entl
eled to respectful consideration.
"If you try to help one class by allow
ing It to repudiate its debts and cut
down the wages of labor, and then, as
an offset.offer to the turbulent free riot,
all you do la to Insure the degrada
tion of every class in the community."
There Is no particular glamor or mag
netism about Benjamin Harrison, but
we notice be has no trouble in drawing
larger audiences than Bryan.

Astrolabe cast: 2.22 for Friday, Oct. 23.
A child born oh this day will notice that
a good deal of silver enthusiasm ubout lis
Is simply a very thin quality of plute.
It has been suggested that Mr. Vldaver
write a book entitled "Inner Political Life
In Scranlon As I Found It."
A suspicion Is gaining ground that Edi
tor John liluekwood Is clearing bis throat
preparatory to emitting a 10 to 1 scream.
Four-ln-hand ties are appropriate for

Misstatements of ' ..
i'Thls conspiracy which we have to meet
is a conspiracy which has for Its ultimate
object the striking down of silver as ono
of the standard moneys of tho world."
Mr. Bryan assumes that this "conspir
acy" has been in active operation since
1S73. Yet, according to the director of thu
L'l.-Ued States mint, there is much moro
than double the amount of silver money
in use in the world today than there was
In lt73, and practically all of It Is a full
legal tender. Director Preston estimates
the amount of silver monev In the world
In 1S73 at S1,817,i;i,ujo, while toduy It Is
M.07P.5)0,(iC!). Here It irln tabular form:
Silver money In the world in
Silver nwney in the world tu
If this is the result of a "conspiracy" or
twenty-three years, wouldn't it be well
enough to let the "conspiracy" go on?
"We complain of the gold standard he
cause an Increased demand for gold Ir:
raised the price of gold und lowered t!';
price of all those things which exchange
for money." liutfalo Speech.
How can there be nn Increased demand
for gold, when gold, sliver and paper
money, us well us hank exchanges, have
Increased much moie rapidly than the
population In tho past few years? 'lhu In
creased easa of producing both aoid und
silver has enormously increased the quan
tity of them offered to the publle. Mill
hull, Preston und other authorities show
that the gold of the world, coined und un
coined, has Increased from less than
M,WXi,(KK) to over J7,ouO,Uiw,000 in the past
half century, and that the silver money
of the wot Id, which Mulhall estimates at
ll.SW.O'MUOu fifty years ago. Is now over
$4,000,uOO,o;h). The proportion of gold In
the world which Is made Into coin has
doubled In the last fifty years, being now
over two. thirds of tho total stock lnste.il
of one-third ns It was half a century uso.
So there Is apparently six times as much
gold money and twice as much sliver
money in the world today as there was
fifty years ago. Does this look as though
there wus "an increased demand for gold,
which hus raised tho price of gold?"
"Our opponents cannot Ignore the fact
that gold is now going abroad in spite of
ull legislation intended to prevent It, nnd
no silver is coined to take its place."
Madison Square Garden Speech.
Yes, the gold which went abroad in the
fiscal year lljW amounted to $t;0,378,(i4it In
excess of the importations of gold; but If
Mr. Bryan will examine the Imports of
merchandise for the same year, he will
find that they were $124,Tlf,4U2 In excess of
thoso in the last year of the McKinley
law. Imports of merchandise have to be
paid for in gold or Its equivalent. Had
they been no more In 189'i than they wero
in the lust yeartif the McKinley law, we
could not only have kept at home all of
the S0,578,Vt!t which went abroad, but all
of the difference between that and the
(121,715,402 of excessive Importations duo
to the Wilson-Gorman act, which Mr.
Bryan helped to frame and pass, and
which not only stimulated the importation
of goods demanding gold for payment,
but closed thu factories of this country at
the same time.
"We believe thut the free coinage of
silver will bring gold to this country, and
that, too, without the aid of syndicates."
Speech at Syracuse, N. Y.
If thut Is the effect of the free coinage
of silver, why does it not do so in the
countries which now have free coinage?
The South American states have had free
coinage of silver for many yaars, yet the
gold does not appear to be drifting to
them. They have actually mined $25,000,
0i)0 In gold since the beginning of 1S!2, yet
they have lost most of that, and Instead
of tho gold going to them under the free
coinage of silver, as Mr. Bryan says will
happen, they have lost their gold until
they have today but Sl.ll for each Indi
vidual. Mexico has had free coinage tf
silver for many years; but Instead of at
tracting gold according to the Bryun
theory, her gold has rapidly left her, so
that, although she mines between four
and five millions of gold a year, her gold
money amounts to Just 41 cents for each
Individual In her population, or one-twe'i-tleth
of what the United States has per
capita. Does this look as though the free
coinage of silver would "bring gold to
this country, and that without the aid of
"Tho Increased demand for gold has
raised the price of gold and lowered the
prices of all those things which exchange
for money." Buffulo Speech.
The one thing which primarily exchanges
for money nnd measures It Is lubor. The
report of Mr. Bryan's co-laborer In the
silver vineyard, Senator Jones, of Nevada,
as a member of the Aldrlch committee c.f
the United States senate, shows that one
hour of labor would In 1MII buy more gold
than it did in 1S73, or In any other period
of the previous history of the country.
There had never been a year in tho his
tory of the country, according to the re
port of the Aldrlch committee, which Is
accepted by ull parties ns accurate and
reliable, In which an hour of labor would
buy as much gold as In 18D1, the date at
which this committee reported. If there
has been any loss in the earning power of
labor since that day. It is due to the till
ing up of tho country wdth foreign made
goods, and throwing out of employment
millions of laborers, and not because of a
gold standard which has been In operation,
according to Mr. Bryan's admission, for
The Inlluence of Scorpio.
Scorpio begins toduy, Oct. 23, and will
continue until Nov. 22. Children born un
der thin sign have a great deal of magnet
ic heat in tneir system, and if proper con
liilions of health exist will not suffer
much from cold. They havu strong appe
tites, strong passions, und when angry
a very hiuh temper, and are usually of a
very Jealous nature. They have great
tenacity of life, but ure Inclined to be tdle.
In everything they are Inclined to think
of self first. They are good friends ro
long as it pays to be r.o, but can Just as
c-uslly be an enemy If it Is more convenient
and prolltable. Children of Scorpio are
very dangerous In their Jealousy, and on
this account ought never to give way to
impulse, or yield to the frenzy of sus
picion. Parents of children of Scorpio
should commence in early life to instill
into their minds the Importance of self-
control in all. things, and should also re
strain their luxurious inclinations. Pos
sessed of great magnetic power, the chil
dren of Scorpio when in perfect health
have ability to cure disease by mussugu
or the simple laying on of hands.
Of the Influence of Scorpio the ancient
astrologers speak as follows: "The sun
