WITH RESPECT to the ju
dicial vacancy in this
county now temporarily
filled by gubernatorial
appointment, but requiring an expres
sion from the electors five weeks hence,
tho Republicans of Lackawanna aro
confronted by a condition, not a. theory.
The condition is that an immense plu
rality of the party membership at tho
regular primaries have by their ballots
indicated a de.slre for the nomination
of a Republican candidate for judge
and hav)i, also pointed to the man
whom they prefer for that position.
To loyal partisans the will of tho ma
jority has tho force of law.
Nor Is the demand for n straight out
party nomination lucking In substan
tial arguments. Whatever may bo de
sirable in theory, as a matter of fnet
the office of judge, wholly asiile from
its interpretations of law, which must
necessarily be non-partisan, carries
with It poweis and opportunities bound
to be exeieiseil by the successful aspir
ant in harmony with tho political In
terests of tho party organisation to
which he belongs and to which he Is
under obligations for his nomination
and for the executive work pteltmlnnry
to his election. Jf on a bench of three,
two are Republicans anil one a Dem
ocrat this does not insure the elimina
tion of polities. Its only meaning is
that where party Interests are con
cerned the Democrat neutralizes the
Influence of one of the Republicans,
whereas if all weie of one party faith
their very unanimity would tend to
effect a disappearance of partisan is
sues and considerations.
At all events, the tribunal to decide
this matter is the ballot box of the
sovereign people. They alone can say
the final word upon this theme of con
troversy. The Republican ticket this
year presents for their consideration
the name of a prominent and success
ful attorney whose career at the bar
and in tho forum of public affairs has
been self-wrought from poverty and
meagre opportunities; vVho In his Re
publicanism has been Industrious, stal
wart and staunch; who Is thoroughly
familiar with the conditions and needs
of tho great body of our population,
nnd who promises, If elected, to bo a
Just and fearless judge, "with malice
toward none and charity for all,"
A Factoryvlllo subscriber asks if ho
can demand a gold dollar for a silver
dollnr at the treasuiy of tho United
States. Ho can nnd ho will got It. The
proceduro required would bo to ex
change tho silver dollar for a tieasury
note nnd to offer the latter for redemp
tion, requiring payment In gold.

been much dust. raising over al

Attorney Uonornl Elkln's offer at
Chester opens wide tho door to a sub

publican organization In tho state, nt

OCTOBER FIRST Is known In
New York as dividend day,
because on that date quar
terly dividends on corpora
tion stocks nrc paid. On Monday $30,
277.SC5 was paid ns dividends upon
stocks of a par value of $1,062,884,332,
which is nearly an average of 2 per
cent, quarterly. Tho dividends pnld
upon these same stocks in previous
years wore ns follows:

Since McKlnley's election, stock
dividends have more than doubled.
This money does not all go Into the
nlrcndy distended pockets of the rich,
but on the contrary, the greater pro
portion of It is distributed among small
shareholders, largely widows and or
phans, whose resources In life arc In
tho form of Investment securities held

Philosophy of Business Success.
IN HIS SPEECH at Kansas City,
Mo., Monday evening Senator
Reverldge of Indiana happily ex
pounded the philosophy of busi
ness success when he said:
"If the opposition tell you that com
merce 'depends upon cheapness and
quality, I nnswer that every town in
Missouri lefutes that statement.
Cheapness and quality have something
to do with securing markets, but con
venience and advertising have more.
The finest sock of goods in Missouri
nt the lowest price may be brought to
any county; but if the owner of those
goods does not put them In a store
at a convenient place In a convenient
town, and then does not tell you about
them, you never will buy them."
To have good goods conveniently
offeied lor sale at fair prices and then
to tell people about them Is the whole
story. Rut In these busy days one
telling is not enough. Amidst tho vol
uminous competition of modern dis
tinctions tho man with something to
tell has to repeat It until the people
hear It. It Is keeping everlastingly at
It that make advertising profitable.
The New York "World, which ought
to bo good Democratic authority, has
figured out that Mr. Croker's commit
tee Is collecting $4,100,000 a year

and tho average rate of tribute, which
is from $75 per month to $100 per week
each, as follows:

occupying more than one-half the page,
was marked Spain; all tho rest of thu
countries wero scattered about the
edge. Thus tho young Filipino camo

magnitude of the country of his op

prised to learn that America covers a
greater area than Spain. There will

Colonel M. 9. Quay at Chester.
My otc was cast for the first Republican tlckcc
offered to (lie people of Pemisj lvanla for their
suffiage, and from that date to tho present there
Ins presented itself no reason for tho change
of my party preference. Year after year satisfies
me mor of the wisdom of the people of l'enn
s,ihanh in accepting the Republican faith. Their
political organization has grown from ft handful
of people to be the gi cat est power ot tho union.
The Mate has advanced miiaculously in wealth
and population under its government. Our great
debt lias been paid; our entire territory is belted
with tailrojib and lighted with the fires of our
furnaces and fnctorles; our annual school and
charitable appropilutions have grown from hun
dreds of thoimnds Into- millions; our corpora
tions Ime taken out the burden of taxation
from the rral citato of our farmers, and we aio
rich and happy beyond tho hope or dream of a
bill century ago.
All this has come fiom the Intelligence, thrift
and Industry of our people under tho guiding hand
of Republican admlnistutlon. Our prospeiity
siiins rock-bound and rock-ribbed, but l'ennsyl.
viiiians must not forget that it is largely based
upon tho tariff and that while there is n lull in
tho warfare upon our protoetbe system, the elec

WHAT McKINLEY PROSPERITY HAS
DONE FOR OUR AMERICAN FARMERS
In his speech accepting the nomination by the Populists nnd Free 811
verltes at Topeka, Kansas, August 22, W. J. Bryan said! "Tho pros
perity argument which tho Republicans bring forward will not deceive
the farmer." Now let us see how the "prosperity argument' comes
home to the farmer. If the crops increase in value becauso tho Republi
can pnrty rostored tho protective tariff policy that started up the mills,
reopened the factories and put millions of idle men to work, thereby in
creasing the sale of the farmer's crops, then it has brought prsoperlty to
the farmer, nnd no idle and false assertions to the contrary can ob
scure this great fact. The following figures aro from tho Toports of the
United States Department of Agriculture, division of statistics, and are
official. They show the value of the leading farm crops in tho principal
states of tho Union 1

The figures en farm animils include the aluc of horses, mules, cows, other cattle and sheep,
but not swine.
This total of $836,419,195 shows the increased value of farm pro
ducts in one year, 1899, over 1896. How, then, can Mr. Bryan stand
up and intimate to farmers that they have not received any share of
prosperityP Add to the above figures the greater value procured' by the
farmers for their tobacco, broom-corn and other, crops, and the year's
increase will reach fully a billion dollars.
Farmers know that their condition today is better than when they
were selling 10c corn and 12c oats during the last Democratic adminis
tration. They know that open factories are better than "imperial" soup
They know that active consumption is better than under consump
tion. They know that active consumption can exist only when the mills
are open and the people are earning wages and have money to spend.
Bryan's calamity howl won't deceive the American farmers.
LET EEASON PREVAIL.
From the Wilkcs-Ilarre Record.
Keeping 110,000 or r0,000 men unemployed is
a matter so serious and far reaching in its ef
fects that the lolutlon of the differences leading
up to this deplorable condition must be ap
proached in n spirit free from petty prejudices
and animosities. This (treat army of idle minors
will In a very short time throw out of employ
ment an army thrice as lame of other working
men, whose idleness will in turn affect still
more. IVIicn such grae consequences are threat
ened, bringing poierty and mlseiy, directly or
indirectly, upon millions, it Is time for sober
judgment and due regard fpr persoml responsi
bility to be asserted by tlin-.e who bold in their
hands the power to end the strife,
Such n strtke as that which has closed the
mines throughout tho anthracite coal fields must
of necessity finally end In conference, concession
and compromise, 'i lie lttcord is a Him bclleicr
in the principle of aibitratlon where other
methods fall. We believe that this strike could
be settled on a basis of justness and fairness to
both sides if all tho differences weio submitted
to a board of arbiti.itlon composed of men such
a.s hao been suggested again and again in lint
connection dining the past few weeVs, Tho com
munity at largo has inteiests and rights which
tho representatives of the great coal companies
as well as tho oillcials of the United Mine Win I;

Interests, thu thousands of uoiMngiiien in the
manufacturing iuihistiles, In the trides of all
Kinds, in tho factories, t.nopi and stores, who
aro Indirectly sufferers In consequence of this
strike, have the right to demand that this sus
pension of operations at the mines lie not un
necessarily prolong! d for even a blnule day.
Neither the representatles of tho companies nor

Its bright side, lcaUng something to be giateful
for. Tho bright side of tho present slriko in
these anthracite ialh) is the admirable behalor
of tho tens of thousands of men engaged in the
struggle. There has not been a single act of
lawlessness since tho strike was declared that
could bo attributed to the strikers. Peace, liw
and order hao prevailed to ccn a ki cater ex

that wle counsels haio prevailed unions; them
up to this time, restraining the less controllable
elements fiom acts which su frequently in the
past have deprhed nun cm strike of all public
sympathy. If the hJme conditions shall continue
to the end (which it is hoped and bclleud is
near at hand) then this contest between capital
und labor will always stand out prominently in
the future as clduuc that .1 ci.ulute and de
termined stiiko of mine workers can be carried
on in these allejs, without lolnicc, without
lawlessness, without necessitating the presence
of any authority greater than that ordinarily
maintained for the preservation of law und the
protection ot life and property,

"The virtue that cornea out from the holy
