For County Treasurer.
WITH THE public career
of t'lie Republican nomi
nee for county treasurer,
Hon. J. A. Scranton, we
may safely assume that our readers
arc already familiar. Extending over a
period of the third of a century, it has
been practically co-termlnous with the
existence of the Republican party, and
in respect of political activity in be
half of Republican candidates and par
ty principles, it stands out in clear re
lief. At the recent primaries, Mr. Scran
ton presented himself before the voters
as a candidate for one of the principal
county offices, an office which he is
thoroughly qualified to fill, and the
emoluments of which represent no more
than a reasonable partial recompense
for political service long performed.
The result of the primaries clearly in
dicates the existence of a widespread
desire that past differences within the
local party councils should be healed
up, that representatives of the various
factions should all be recognized in
the construction of the party ticket,
and that the Republicanism of Lacka
wanna, in this important presidential
year, should present a united front
against the united enemy.
The wisdom of this judgment is re
ceiving daily vindication In the grow
ing enthusiasm aroused In behalf of
the ticket thus harmonized, and in no
direction is this fact more manifest
than in popular approval of Mr. Scran
The "repenting and recanting" by
the Philadelphia Times of Its former
advocacy of sound money does not
seem to have created much of a panic
In. the business world. The Times in
the days when it was distinctively the
reflection of Colonel McClure's vigor
ous Intellect and striking personality
was one of the pillars of American
Journalism. But latterly It more near
ly resembles a garbage heap.

The Cuban revolution, he points out,
was not an affirmation but a negation.

n(lnot a small one, If one generation
should completo with advantage the
mqnumental -work which enters Into
the problem of Cuban Independence."
Finally, turning to its commercial
aspects, he shows that independence
would take from Cuba tho natural
naVket for the great bulk of" Cuba's
products, . unless the United States
sould bo persuaded to give to indepen

place can make a decided difference.
Be On Guard.
REPORTS FROM different lo
calities throughout the coun
try agree that the apathy so
long characteristic of public
opinion during the forepart of tho
campaign Is rapidly disappearing. Tho
country Is arousing itself to the real
importance of safe-guarding Its mag
nificent prosperity and protecting Its
unexampled prestige. As a result the
prospects of Republican bucccss grow
brighter day by day, yet it Is not to
be assumed that the light Is won, or
that the chances of victory arc so largo
that overconlldencc may not destroy
Tho history of politics Is full of In
stances In which the tide of battle,
seemingly flowing In a uniform direc
tion, has at tho eleventh hour been re
versed by some untoward circum
stance, Eomefluke, accident or blunder
beyond the ability of the shrewdest
campaign manager to foresee and pre
vent. Take, for Instance, tho cam
paign of JSS4. Who does not remem
ber the apparent certainty of Repub
lican victory which occupied every
mind six weeks prior to the counting
of tho ballots? And yet a Burchard,
with the best of Intentions, by an In
discretion of utterance, at the final
moment completely upset the intricate
achievements of months of Republican
toll and precipitated into the presi
dential chair a man whose election
chanced the whole tenor oC American
Recall the situation eight years aso.
An administration was in power which
for high purposes, clean methods, lofty
Americanism and successful achieve
ment ranks with the best that our
nation has ever known. Prosperity, too,
was prevalent everywhere. Wage earn
ers were In receipt of the highest wages
which had been paid during their gen
oration. Industries were experiencing
a flood tide of profitable activity. Com
merce was never more voluminous or
successful. Yet in the face of these ex
traordinary recommendations, a strike
at Homestead, no more chargeable
against Benjamin Harrison than
against the satellites of Saturn, up
heaved a tidal wave of restlessness
which swept tho Harrison administra
tion out of office by one of the largest
adverse pluralities polled since tho
birth of the Republican party; and
made possible the frightful destitution
of the low tariff free soup-house era.
These examples are not cited for Re
publican discouragement, but they are
recalled in order that no Republican
voter may fall into the error of assum
ing that active work in behalf of the
party ticket Is superfluous. The De
mocracy this year is strongly rein
forced. Its treasury is overflowing
with Tammany blackmail upon crime,
and Its machinery of attack is more
formidable now than in any campaign
since the first' nomination of Graver
Cleveland. It behooves Republicans to
recognize these facts. The time to per
ceive them is before, not after, elec
tion. A resident of Grand Rapids, Mich.,
by the name of Boyle Is credited with

be presented to tho board after tho
fashion of an ordinary dispute, the two
powers Interested, of course, not being
represented during the urgument on
tho board. After the case has been
presented tho board will take the mat
ter up, and after careful consideration
will pass judgment according to the
merits of the controversy. In case of a
finding In favor of either one of the
contestants, the extent of damage to
its national pride, or material prosper
ity, will bo estimated In dollars and
cents, tho amount to be paid to tho ag
grieved party. The funds from which
tho damages are to bo paid will bo

William M. Reedy, In tho Mirror.
Till'. MOST inexplicable thing in American
public nffniia today Is the manner in
which Colonel Roosevelt Is attacked by the
jellow papers. To the ordinary person
Colonel I!ooeelt teems to bo the sort of man
wo liaec long been looklwr. for In our politics.
Ho is the iort of nun whose absence from our
politics we used to lament. lie Is a young
inun. He comes of what may be called in this
country an old family, He Is a man of edu
cation. He Is a combination of the college man
and the man of means, to which some years
ago we looked for political Eahatlon. lie is
not a dreamer or a rainbow chaser. He has
done what came to his hand to be done. He
has sought expcrlenco in tho world. lie has
mingled with men as well as pored over books.
He made Fifth avenue, Now York, touch elbows
with the Wild West. He studied the history
of his country and participated to some small
extent In the life of the newer pjit of the
country until he Knew it fairly well.
Mr. Roosevelt's career has been that of a
gentleman and scholar and hustler. There )h
more about him of the typical American, as
we generally conceive him, than about any
other man in public life. Nobody can justly
accuse him of anything in the way of failure
to stand by his principle.-'. He talks now just
as he did when he was u cUil service commis
fioner or when he was a police commissioner In
New York city. Ho stands at once for inde
pendence und for a B.me conception of party
fealty. He Is a mugwump within the party and
he has not hesitated openly to deal with the
party boss. He accepts tilings as he finds them
and he talks risht out in meeting. No more
independent party man has this country ecr
seen. He necr has shirked responsibility, not
even the one now forced on him of drawing the
file of the enemy. He was a mugwump wlthm
dlsclplin een in the army, as was shown by the
round robin at Santiago. There is no disput
ing bis courage or his consistency in a difficult
middle course in politics and no one has ever
been able to find the instance in which he
plnjed the demagogue. Wherever any one has
found llooscelt, ho has found him sajing what
he thought and felt lather than what he thought
people wanted to hear.
No man could be more enamored of work
along the linen of a citizen's duties and lie is
the one conspicuous example of the scholar gen
tleman in politics who is not afraid to go to the
primaries or to get candle-grease or coal-oil on
his clothes In attending political meetings. Tlie
man, In any. reasonable lew of him, Is a com
mendable figure of the time. Tie looms up in his
party as tho man who is mo distinguished by
straightforwardness and one of the few who are
not the creatures of tho crew that thinks
money does everything. Colonel Roosevelt is
an American of the Americans and if his at
titude appeals to have too much emphasis It is
because he Is the man who expresses .mcrleanlsm
without any of the hypocrisy or cant or bogus
humaiiitariaulsm which arc invoked by others
to gull the public.
Cplonel Roosevelt is not a trimmer nor a
twaddler nor a sniveler. He is straightforward i
and undiplomatic. He doesn't coddle the peo
ple. He is unpopular with the men who want
to do tilings In tlie daik, who want to E.iy one
thing and mean another, who want a public
man to be always making a door-mat of him
self tor the mob. The disingenuous dislike htm.
The cranks revile him for his lack of humbug
in his adherence to reform Ideas. Colonel Roose
velt is the young American of education, of
position, of moderate means, of healthy experi
ence, of broad but vigorous sympathy, of the
practical turn for adjusting himself to circum
stances without dunging his principles that,
multiplied, must save this country from the
peril of future Bryan.

THE CLUB MEN
Concluded from Page U
for a cessation from Mr. Bryan him
self. The speech was liberally ap
plauded throughout and when It was
concluded there was a rush to tho
stage on tho part of those In tho audi
ence who wished to shake hands with
him, He, however, avoided the demon
stration and soon found his way back
to his hotel.
Mr. Bryan's Address.
Mr. Bryan spoke as follows:
Mr. Chairman, Ladles and Gentlemen: 1 am
here not becauje I am needed, but bcrausc 1
want to be. Not because )ou need mc, but
because I am glad tu meet jou. It is not nee
cssary that 1 should speak to you, for ou
have already listened to enough to convince any
who was not convinced, and one follows me to
night who will convince any who may still bo
without the fold. You have heard the specen
from my distinguished colleague on the ticket,
who disputes the saying of Nestor when he com
plained that the Gods did not give all things
to a nun at the same time; that the gods
withheld the gor of youth when they gave the
wisdom of age. I think you will agree with
me that my colleague is able to comulne both
vigor of youth with the wisdom of age.
Itut I appreciate the work done and to be
done by this association of Democratic clubs,
nnd I appreciate the energy, the enthusiasm and
the ability displayed by Mr. Hearst, the presi
dent of this association. I believe in these
clubs. We need them. W'c need clubs tar more
than the Republicans need clubs. In fact, tny
friends, the work of Democracy, being a work
for tho people, must be done by the people.
Machinery i not sufficient when we have but
machinery alone to win a Democratic fight. Wc
need theso clubs to aid In the work and to
supplement the efforts of our national, slate one!
local organizations. We need the clubs to help
ui collect money to carry on our campaign. The
Republican party can get Its money from the
corporations, which plunder the people between
cimpalgna In return for the money contributed
Wo cannot go to a trust and ask it to help
us because we do not expect to be helped.
We know- that every speech made by n Demo
crat against these trusts makes it easier for
their party to raise a campaign fund, you un
derstand that. We need these clubs to help us
collect money to carry on the campaign.
The Republican party does not collect money
for its national campaign from one Republican
out of a hundred, and when the election is over
09 out of 100 Republicans have nothing to say
about the limning of fhc government.
Wo expect that the administration will bo
conducted in behalf of the great mass of the
American people and wc have the right to call
on them to help with their money as well as
their votes to vein this tight, which Is their
fight nnd not our fight. We need the clubs to
help circulate literature. If every member of
the clubs will pick out some acquaintance and
find out what he is thinking about, prepare to
meet his argument, supply him with literature
and work for his conversion, the members of
these club will be astonished to find how much
can be done.
Wc need the clubs to help get the votes out
on election day. Out In our state wc sometimes
arrange to have volunteers who will go out, and
when they find a man who thinks ho Is too busy
husking corn to spare the time to vote, the
volunteer husks in his place until he goes and
votes. Wo need these clubs to help get the
vote out, and then we need these club to help
get the vote counted and to prevent fraud after
it is cast. I glory in the work done thus far.
The meeting of these delegates here Is an indica
tion of the Interest taken in this work, and I
beg you to spend every possible moment between
now and election In securing victory for thoe
principles which you believe In, nnd for tills
cause which you have so earnestly espoused.

Mr. Cockran uevoted his speech to
the questipn of imperialism, discussing
it In a similar manner to that of his

the exception of two companies, left for homo
this afternoon. The remaining companies will
depart with tlie tents a3 soon as the canvas is
dry enough to fold. General Gobin says the
troops will be moved from day to day, weather
permitting, until all have gone. Battery C, ho
btalcd, will be the next to go and will probably
break camp tomorrow.
Tlie general says he hopes to have all the sol
diers away by tlie end of the week. Ho is of

strike is unlikely, and sajs there is no reason
why he should hold the troops Indefinitely.

scinded the order sending Battery C home. He
said that, on account of the unsettled condition
in the Shamokln region, he thought it wise to
keep the battery here for a time.

REPLY TO THE
(Concluded from Page 1,)
The government of the Untied States Is ills
pose'd to regard this mcaiuro as proof of the
desire of the imperial Chlneso government to
ratlsfy the reasonable demands of tho foreign
powers tor the Injury and outrsge which their
legations and their cltltcns hive suffered at the
hands of evil disposed persons In China; although
it has been thought well, In view of the vague
nes of the edict in regard to the punishment
which some of the Inculpated person arc to re
ceive, to signify to the Chinese minister the
president' view that It would ho most regret,
able If Prince Tuan, who appears from the con
curring testimony of the legation in l'cleln to
havo been one of the foremost In the proceedings
complained of, should escape such full measuro
of exemplary punishment u the fact warrant,
or If Rang Yl and Chao Sit Clilao should receive
other than their Just deserts.
With n view to forming n Judgment on these
points the United States minister in Pekln has
been instructed to report whether the edict com
pletely names the person deserving chastise,
ment; whether the punishments proposed accord
with tho gravity of the crime. committed; and
in what manner the United States and other
powers are to be assured that satisfactory punish
ment Is inflicted.
It I hoped that Mr. Conger's replies to these
Interrogatories will confirm the government of
the United States in the opinion which It now
shares with the imperial German government
that tho edict in question is on important Initial
step In the direction of peace and order in China.

The boss of the repair department in a Massachusetts
watch factory says : "I used to be a good deal of an ath
lete and was in the habit of taking lots of out of door
exercise, but since I've been shut up in this shop I began
to haye terrible bilious headaches. I still did enjoy an
occasional bout at boxing, but after a few lively rounds a
tendency to get as sick as can be seemed to take posses
sion of me, The exercise appeared to stir up the bile and
the next day I would have a cracking good headache, My
druggist recommended me to try Ripans Tabules as a
possible cure. He said they seemed to be the latest cure
all for stomach troubles. Well, he just hit it. I have not
used more than 25 cents' worth, but I exercise now as
much as I please and don't know what a bijjous headache
means any more."
