population which have manifested a
onsclontloiis opposition to the dynas
tic type of political dictatorship built
up urnlcr t ho Hvay of the elder Camer
on nnil bf(uenthet to his successor?,
Donald Camel on and Colonel Quay:
and those politicians and beneficiaries
who merely hoped to unhorse their
louuer commander-in-chief from mo
th cs of vciiKeanoo or envy. In the
cu of the foimer the contest lias for
the Kreater pait boon waged without
poisonal bitterness and on bioad linos
of piluclple well calculated to recom
mend themselves to men of Indepen
dent temperament, not nlwajs fami
liar with the practical conditions and
necessities of political leadership nnd
sometimes Impatient for the realiza
tion of their Ideals, llul In the cate of
the latter there has been a prolonged
exhibition of hypocilsy, false pretence,
malice and despeiatlon equnlly well
i alculatcd to disgust the fair-minded.
The fight stalled In 1S95 over tho
nomination of a candidate for mayor
of Philadelphia. It has been allege 1
that corporate and pecuniary lnflu
cmes for sonlld leasons organized" a
i.imp.ilgn of calumny against Hole?
Pentose which, being caught up by
the unsophisticated, lesulted In his
defeat as ti candidate for tho mayor
ally nomination and led to the public
denunciation by Senator Quay of Ills
former chief lieutenant, David Mar
tin, which was the opening gun In a
factional battle that soon convulsed
the ftate, Tiuth and rumor o confus
ingly interblend that no man yet can
be Bine as to all Jhc causes; it Is
Mitllclent to note that after the oppo.
ncnts of Colonel Quay had taken to
the state convention In that year a
majmlty of delegates ample to defeat
him for the Mate chairmanship, his
Mipeilor generalship and the weaken
ing at the ciltical moment of one or
nioie of the piomlncnt nntl-Quay lead
ei.s gave to tho Ueaver strategist the
In the hour of a peisonal triumph
which attracted national attention
Quay's magnanimity disarmed many
opponents, whom subsequent dlscov
eiles convened Into allies and friends.
The central figure In the anti-Quay
camp had been Daniel II. Hastings.
He next appeuied at the St. Louis
national convention as the spokesman
nf Quay's compllmentaiy candidacy
fi.r the pu-sldentl.il nomination and
otli'led a eulogy which, In contrast
with picvloux and subsequent expres
sions, Illustrates how often In politics
sclf-lnteiost dictates the point of
view. At that lime General Hastings
had In mind the senatorshlp about to
Im wiluntailly iellno,ulshed by Donald
Cameron The other candidates, both
openly announced, wcio Uofes Penrose
and John Wunamnker of Philadelphia
the latter picsented by men of 1m
n. ease wealth cooperating tluough
the machinery of the Business Men's
Mr. Wnnamakei'rt candidacy was
OMiwcdly for the put pose of eliminat
ing Quay front politics and it was pro
moted with nil the vigor that unlimit
ed lesouices' could command. Pro
f'sMng opposition to coriupt and cor
rupting political influences, It was
com pi ted by tho professionals In Im
mediate chaigo Into one of the most
dating net u oiks of subsidy and foie
closuto known to metcenary politics.
Money was used so boldly that In Belf
defense a halt hud to bo called and
tho Vnn Vnlkcnberg disclosures fol
lowed, on the eo of the genet nl as
sembly. It is unnecessaiy to review
tho5o disclosures In detail. They form
a, familiar chapter In recent local hls
toiy and weio finally, through mis
taken leniency, compromised by Vnn
Valkenberg paying the costs to escape
the penitential y.
l'i to this time the light on Quay
had largely been ono of competitive
rmbltlon 'to gain his command over
ptrty organization and ta capture his
political power. Hut with tho un
masking of the false pretonccH of the
Wnnaniaker movement It entered upon
a new and a ntoro desperate stage
that of a violent desire for tevenge.
Hefoio the legislature of 1897 convened,
Governor Uas'tlngrt had hoped to be
the Quay rholccvfor senator but had
taken no notlvfj, stepans a candidate.
On the other handrl'tatc Senator Pen
rrao had made a trcmcndouH fight la
"Run oflsTillng on
-. r.r.s '
Philadelphia, defeating Wanamnker
ntitl his local supporters overwhelm
ingly In tho leglslntho prlmnrles, nnd
gaining a substantial following else
where In the state. This made Pen
roso the logical opponent of Wnnn
maker and with Quny'a help ho was
elected United States senator; but
Penrose's election made Governor
Hastings for the second time an In
But gent, nnd the opposition to Quay
now consisted of the following ele
ments: A governor, disappointed, sore and
ready to use the whole Influence of the
state administration In the war for
John Wannmaker, Thomas Dolan
nnd tho coterie of flnanclnl nnd mer
cantile glantR In sympathy with them
or subject to thrlr wide-reaching In.
The city administrations of Philadel
phia and Pittsburg with their enor
mous financial nnd political resources
The massed potency of a skilfully
subsidized chain of newspapers Ingen
iously used to manufacture nntl-Quay
The natural susceptibility of a con
siderable class of citizens to Imposition
In tho tallsmanlc name of leform,
And, last but not least, the combined
force of a generation's accumulated
political disappointments nnd antag
onisms now focussed upon Colonel
Quay In rejuvenated hope of ven
geance. It was against this foimldable coali
tion, perhaps without patallcl In
Amctlcan politics, that Colonel Quay
had to struggle In his unsuccessful
campaign for re-election befote the
leglslatwc two years ago. Hut the
foregoing enumeration of hostile ele
ments does not indicate the whole of
his dlllicultles. The then dlsttict at
torney of Philadelphia, Oeoige S. Giu
liani, after long tenure, with Incredible
power, was suddenly compelled to wlth
dliiw as a candidate for re-election.
The reasons for the public demand for
his withdrawal reflected upon his pri
vate life In a mnnnci not unlike tho
eat Her nttacks upon Senator Penrose.
Graham, without cause, so far as has
over been disclosed, chaigcd his humil
iation against Quay. Another promin
ent Influence In tho Philadelphia
com ts, Judge Gordon, subsequently
John 'Whnamakcrs attorney, and a
man of notoriously strong prejudices
and lesentments, had aspired for the
Democratic nomination for governor
ngalnst William A Stone and had been
defeated by Judge Jenks; this defeat
Gordon bitterly charged ngalnst Quay.
In the course of ofllclal duty these
two men came Into possession of tho
books and papei.s of the suspended
People's bank, In which large deposits
had been made of state funds and
with which Senator Quay had maln
alned an active account. This hap
pened In tho spring of 1S99 and It was
not until a few weeks befoie tho en
suing November election that Infor
mation was tiled tluough their agen
cies upon which Senator Quay, with
thiee otheis, was an ested on the
charge of conspiracy to misuse state
funds. For mouths tho documentary
evidence of Quay's alleged guilt was
exclusively In the custody of men of
known vlndlctlveness smarting under
tecent disappointments for which they
held him accountable: and the ques
tion has often been present in the
minds of Qua's friends whether tho
long delny In letting fall the bolt of
airest and Indictment was for the pur
pose of forging a coil of testimony
only partly germane to the original
The nature of the testimony In this
celebiated case nnd tho chaiactcr of
some of the rulings aie fresh In the
mcmoiy of attentive students of Tub
llc affatis. Quay wanted an Immed
iate trial ere Distilct Attorney Gra
ham had retired from ofllce, and was
willing that it should be called befoie
Judge Flnletter, whose son was one
of Graham's pi lnclp.il assistants; but
his attorneys, fearful of the political
odds against them, forced a continu
ance. Meantime the Ieglsl.ituie con
vened and fell Into deadlock. Then
It wns that tho prosecution, formeily
so furious for trial, Itself besought
postponement and succeeded In holding
bnck a verdict until utter tho lcgls
latuie had adjourned. The vet diet
was of acquittal but the political pur
pose of the prosecution had been
served Quay's le-electlon had been
defeated. The governors appoint
ment of Colonel Quay and the sen
ate's rejection by the nnttow mat gin
of one vote followed in due course
and uro Inteiesting chlelly for tho In
sight which they nfford Into the won
derful loynlty of Quay's fi lends, a
loyalty well shown by the action of
the state convention, taken the day
after the sennte's vote. In summoning
Colonel Quay to take his case, dliectly
before tho people.
The sequel to that appeal is now te
cortled In the legislature's action of
yesterday. It speaks for Itself. Jtegu
lnrlty and candor ttlumph over In
surrection, hypocilsy nnd spite. Hut
the vlctoiy Is attended by lesponsl
blllly. Quay has won tluough public
contempt for the methods and motives
of his chief assailants, Opposition on
pilnclplo to the abuses nppatcntly In
separable fiom dynastic politics con
tinues. The occasion la propitious for
a cleansing of the party household and
for manifestation of closer sympathy
with tho higher aspirations of the peo
ple. To the extent that public opinion
has been dishonestly estranged It must
be won back. For this purpose deeds
of reformation aro preferable to
Thero Is now n disposition to excuse

ANY OF the letall buyers
of silks In this country
who have been accus
tomed for so long to
thinking that they must purchase
goods bearing a French label In order
to secure a first-class article, will no
doubt be surprised to learn that the
United Stales weavers have for some
time past manufactured the largor
portion of the silk fabrics uscdln this
country. It Is also u fact according
to the recent report at Consul Covert,
nt Lyons, that the Importations of silk
from Franco nro decreasing each year.
It Is an Interesting fact that over
30,000 people in the United States
mnke their living from tho silk Indus
try, most of them being employed In
the silk mills at Pnterson, N. J. There
Is no reason why the trade should not
Increase and the number of workers
now employed here be very largely
augmented. The experiments of silk
making In Scranton nnd neighboring
towns have pioved profitable and the
silk mills should bo among the stand
ard Industries of this valley In tho
near future, as the demand for the
fabric Is steady the year around. The
Importation during the last year from
France of $9,000,000 worth of silk, and
from Japan, China, Germany, Switzer
land nnd other countries of $10,000,000
wotth, shows that thetc is additional
loom In this count! y for the Industry
The only teal drawback to tho busi
ness in America Is the dlfllculty ex
petlenced In raising cocoons. Though
they have been cultlvnted In some
parts of tho country, they have only
been legarded In the light of commer
cial curiosities. The chief sources of
supply at piesent nio China and
Japan, and the pioducts of the worm
may be as easily bt ought to America
ns to Fiance, the chief silk making
countiy. An Idea of the magnitude of
tho Industiy may be gained by the
statement that American merchants
Imported from China and Japan last
year cocojans nnd invv silk to tho
amount of $1S,000,000. American In
genuity nnd mechanical skill are sec
ond to none, nnd applied to slik-weav-Ins
cannot fail to mnke the Industry
a leading one In competition with the
nations of tho old wot Id. There Is no
icason why the United States should
not manufactuio Its own silk, but also
enter the woild's markets ns a com
petitor to France.
