Let Us Have Peace.
FOU ALMOST six years the
Jtopubllean party in Penn
sylvania has been rent in
twain by reason of a fac
tional" quarrel prosecuted with unex
ampled bitterness In every county. The
public's lack of confidence in the
IJomoeiucy lias operated to prevent
Kepubllcan defeat in state and na
tional elections In our commonwealth
la consequence of this Internecine
strife, but It was pointed out by Colo
nel Quay on his recent campaign tour
and has for some time been foreseen
by others that the continuation of this
dissension must eventually bring up in
Throughout this fight of factions, our
sympathies have been with Mr. Quay.
He has been persecuted and maligned
more than any other public man of
this generation. The means employed
In the conspiracy to discredit and ex
terminate lilm have in most instances
been shameful. Every resource of in
trigue and every expedient of false
icpresontatlon that great wealth could
enlist in tlie warfare aginst him has
bern ttioil to the uttermost and ho
Mill remains the chosen leader of the
majority. By overwhelming vote of
the Kepubllcan state convention he
was summoned to be a candidate for
the s-enatorship rendered vacant by
legislative deadlock; and regularity, no
less than fair play, calls for his prompt
election by tlie legislature to convene
next Tifceday. We hope for and ex
pect his election "on the first joint
ballot. This result would constitute
both a personal vindication called for
In the Interest of justice and an In
dorsement of party regularity neces
sary for the discouragement of future
insurrections founded upon malicious
motive, and for the safeguarding of
Rut should the Joint ballot Indicate
that this expectation Is vain, thoro
would develop a situation calling for
very corerul consideration. It is clear
that this legislature must elect a sena
tor. It Is plain that ho must be a
lippubllcan, and a believer In regular
politics. ,Mul It is believed by many
that he should also be it man lilted to
conciliate and harmonize respectable
elements within the party which today
are In sharp antagonism. If Colonel
Quay, after a fair test of strength,
falls of election and withdraws, nsktng
the caucus to substitute a successor,
shall the object bo continued destruc
tive war- or an honorable peace?
William Connell's contingent candi
dacy has for Its plutform the wise re
mark of Ulysses S. Grant at the end
of the greatest civil strife In history;
"Let us have peace."
It Is quite evident from the history
of foreign relations that the flolden

wells exist In tho Osage reservation,

In summarizing his arguments for
statehood Governor Dames says: "We
have a larger population today than
either of the states of Delaware, Idaho,
Montnnn, Nevada, Now Hampshire,
North Dakota, Utah, Vermont, or
Wyoming. We have, as now organized,
a lnrjrer area than any of tho following-named
stutes, viz: Connecticut,
Delaware, Indlanu, Maine, Maryland,
Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New
.Jersey, Hhode Island, Vermont or
West Virginia. The assessed valuation
of taxable property for 1900 Is more
than one-half greater than the as
sessed valuation of either the states of
Wisconsin, Arkansas, Florida, Iowa,
Oregon, Minnesota, California or Kan
sas at the time of their admission. The
average population of the twenty-two
states next admjjtted after tho original
thirteen was 77.3S0, the greatest popu
lation of any one of them being ISO.000,
while the present population of Okla
homa is 400,000. Tho enumeration of
school children in tho territory for 1899
was greater than the population of
twenty of the states at the time of
their admission into the Union."
When it is considered that all this
marvelous development has come to
pass within a period of twelve years
the record takes Us place high among
the wonders of the expiring century.

After attending tlie Fclentillc congress, which
hail brought 1dm to Paris, he was presented to
Jules Clarctie, administiator of the Coiucdle
1'i.im'aU-, and tho busiest of Parisian thronl-qui-tii',
Lonl Auhuiy, ns in duty bound, ex
patUUd on the gloiy and beauty and joy of
Paris and of Pails life. Ohretie, delighted, ah
oibcd the foreign savant's praise, and then, by
way of returning a compliment, he said:
"Your generous tnthusiasm and your cUdent
delight in life make me think of your own Sir
Lubbock. Do ,iou know biin? Quel giaud cpiit,
quel noble eoeur!"
For Clarctie has an immense admiration for
English in geticr.il and especially for Sir John's
"Plcaxuivd of Life," of width ho wiotc once
that it should be made a sort of modern Bible
to teach jouth to hope and work and be happy.
He had no idea that bis admired "Sir Lubbock"
had become Loid Auhuiy.
As for the ennobled author well, lie beamed
with delight. It tt.ii an unexpected pleasure
that life had brought hhu that day. ,

" THE WORLD jtJjt
ONE HUNDRED YEARS
ICopj right, i:iD0, by n. E. Hughes, Louis
ville.) THE IDEA of using electrlcitj- for telegraph
pttiposes w.n uppeimott in the minds of
many Mlenlists at the close of the cen
tury, though the hlstorj of practical
cledtlc telegraph- did not begin for many
year later. Lomond, of France, had jut
made an impoitant advance by using only one
line of wire and an alphabet of motions.
Prior to this tlie use of as many insulated con
ductors as there are letters In the alphabet bad
been suggested. Each wire was to be utilized
ior uto transmission or one letter only, and tiie
message ttaa to be tent by charging the proper
wires In succession and received bj- obsertlng the
movements of small piecei of paper maiked with
the letters of tlie alphabet and placed under the
ends of the wires. An interesting modification
of thli was to attach to the end of each wire it
small lightlull, which. when charged, would be at
tracted toward an adjacent bell and stiiko it. Lo
mond's proposition will be seen therefore to be
a gieat forward step. The same period brought
out tlie spark telegiaph of lteisar, of Don Miva
and of Cavallo, tho pith ball telegraph of Iton
alds and setcral others. The famous discovery of
Oahaul and Vol I a at tills time caused a ficsh
set of proposals in which toltalc electricity M
to be used. A t stent of experiments was th'is
inaugurated that has its Annie in the recording
telegraph by Moise, of America, who in 1S.J.", con
strutted the Hist imlo working model of an in
strument. Automatons weie not altogether notel 'at tlie
close of the teuturj'. Vaucan.sou, the telebiatcd
mechanician, luid on exhibition three admirable
figtues tlie flute playeis, tho tambourine nlater
and the duck which was capable of eating, diink-Tj
nig and imitating the natural voice of that fowl.
These gate a great impulse to the construction
of similar figtues, among the best known pf that
period being .in automaton which wiotc, exhibit
