The Hitchcock Candidacy.
IX THK aclvertlseinent (if his
caiidldaey which f'oloncl llltidi
cock Is rimninir in Hie
newspaporsi onu of them ap
peared in Satirday's Tribune and
another appears tills morning us
well as in his persona! canvass stress
is laid upon the fact that he was as
sessed one thousand dollars by the
Kepuhliean county organization; that
he didn't think it was a fair assess
ment and that therefore he chose to
run on a third party ticket.
This was fully explained In Sir. Con
null's recent interview but in order that
no misconceptions should exist, we
wish to refer to the matter apraln. As
all Republicans should know, the party
rules require the county chairman to
assess nil candidates before a liepiibll
can county primary for the expenses
of holding: the primary election. He Is
directed to proportion the assessment
to the protltableness of the olllco
soimht. This was understood by Col
onel Hitchcock when he registered as
Was the one-thousand-dollar assess
ment too IiIrIi? There lire HIT election
districts and In each district to hold
it primary requires the i-orvlees of three
men besides a return juriKe. In a ma
jority of eases these men have to stop
their ordinary work and lose a day's
time. It has, therefore, been the cus
tom lo allow them $L' apiece as com
pensation for their time and work. The
return jude, who has to travel to
and from the county seat with the re
turns, losing a day from his rcKtilar
work and also having to pay car fare
and for at least one meal, gels $3. Ts
this exorbitant'.' Would Colonel Hitch
cock have this work done for nothing','
Could ho get it done for nothing?
Could he get It done for less?
Here, then, is $!) expense for every
election district for labor alone, iiut
there are other expentes. There Is the
hire of the booths. There aro the
printing and thu distribution of the
ballots. There Is the advertising, llrst
of the date of the piimary, then of the
candidates registered and of other
matters called for by tho rules. These
necessary Incidental expenses amount
in a county like Lackawanna to not
less than $1000 lor each primary elec
tion; we iliiuk wo are safe In asserting
Hint there isn't a county In the com
monwealth employing the direct piim
ary that harf Its primaries conducted
more iieiiinonilcally.so far as the county
organization's connection with them
goes. "What tins candidates themaelveH
spend Is another story.
.Vow count this up, One hnndred and
Blxty-seven districts at J apiece for
labor represent ?ir,o:). Add a thousand
for advertising, printing, booth-hlro
and Incidentals and, in round nuiii
burs, you have 2,-,oo as tho totul cost
of a. primary, When there are a done--or
two dozen candidates this repre
pouts only a mall amount each, itut
Colonelj Hitchcock's friends should re
member" that tills year there were only
six registered candidates, though tho
expens,! nf holding the primary was
as grt-yt as if there hail been a hun
dred, He could not imvo got off for
less than' $100 f nil the candidates had
been assessed equally, Hut Hie rules
require-, that tho assessment Hliull be
In v proportion to the revenue, of the
office. .There is little in thu olllco of
controller, coroner or surveyor, witit
only a "three year term, to compare with
a tcn.year Judgeship at $1000 a year,
Very properly thu candidates for judge
were assessed J1.U00 apiece. At that,
their ut-scs-siuent bore a smaller propor
tion to the receipts of tho olllco limit
111 the etna of the other ciindlitiUes.
Offhand, Jflooo nniy look bin bill
consider wliul It meant In Colonel
Hitchcock's caiif-, it meant covering
for hlni tho whole expense of tlto
primary. It meant paying hl print
ing MIK distributing his ballots, us
miring him the beiielll of nn absolute
ly secret ballot, relieving hlinof the
necessity of hiring men at each polling
place to peddle his tickets, and guar
anteeing nn lionet nnd linpattlal
count. If lie had been nominated bin
subsequent expense would have been
slight, He naturally would have hud
to take bis chnnies on being noiiilualed,
as all men do who mopU elective public
olllee. Hut the assessment at which
he shied was literally a rulr and tie
curate application of Hie parly rules.
In Luzerne county, under similar rules,
but with a big Held running to divide
the expense, the candidates for Judge
were assessed ?IOOt) for primary elec
tion expenses and paid piomptly, with
out a whimper.
We have the utmost personal respect
for Colonel Hitchcock hut feelwltli many
of Ills Intimate friends that he has been
wrongly advised In this mutter. Hun
nlng as he Is. on a third party ticket,
there Is not the remotest possibility of
his election. If he gets a thousand
votes he will get more than some of
his friends are estimating. Hut wheth
er he. gets n few more or a few less
than a thousand votes, ho Is ns fnr
from election as the mini In the niooii
and tho only effect of his candidacy is
to encourage the Democracy anil make
harder the election of the liepiibllcan
candidate. Judge Carpenter. AVu don't
believe that in the event of Sir. New
comb's election through the Hitchcock
deilectlon of voted from Carpenter
Colonel Hitchcock, six months or a
year hence, would feel satisfied with
his work or that his life-long Uppub
llcnn associates would look upon t as
consistent with bis political career up
to tho time that he permitted himself
to be led astray.
The proceedings In Hie Dauphin
county court to test the legality of
Sir. Coray's nomination on tho Demo
cratic ticket by pari of a slate com
mittee, which had by resolution been
Instructed to name for vacancies none
but Democrats, have revealed Hint
politics among the "reformers" Js
fearfully and wonderfully made. No
wonder thousands of Democrats are
disgusted and apathetic
BOOKICK T. WASIIINCTOX,
who before the war was a
slave and immediately after
It a penniless vagrant, now
dines with presidents and queens and
receives honors often more genuine
than those given to royalty. A'by.
Jtecause In the meantime he has done
something; he lias built up the largest
educational establishment for tho in
dustrial training of negroes that ex
ists; and by pen, voice and example,
through sheer force of merit alone,
and against all conceivable obstacles,
has won the attention and respect of
In the name of all that Americanism
stands for, why shliuld such a man
be barred from the dining room of the
president of the Culled States, who Is
the president of S,00flnon negroes as
well as of ilS.ofiO.OOll whites, If the presi
dent feels inclined, by honoring him,
to show ills sympathy witli the ra
tional uplifting of a ilown-trodilen
race? Those who are criticising the
president for inexpediency in this
matter overlook that prejudice and
Injustice do not cure themselves. As
well suggest that a cancer on the hu
man body is best treated by neglect.
The statu of feeling which exists in
the South today with respect to Hie
negro is abnormal and dangerous,
alike to those who hold it and to those
who suffer from it. H has got to lie
lanced, and some brave man must
make the llrst thrust. There Is a
brave man In the While House today,
and afer showing by his generous re
cognition of the best while elements m
the. South that he lias no prejudices
and no person il or sectional ill-will;
quite tho contrary; he now proceeds
to put the lancet into Hie heart of the
South' worst ailment. The ia
tlent, not having been chloroformed,
squirms and shrieks and swears, but
in u short lliuu It will feel better.
Some day, maybe not In our day, It
will be building monuments to the
man whose picture it now vulgarly
in order to bold court In the I'iUo
county end of his district. Judge Craig
of Carbon has to travel L'JS miles by
rail and wagon at a mileage expense
of nearly $isu, and the Journey con
sumes a whole day. lie would save
time and money by using a balloon.
