The figure or the 'budget submitted
by Sir Michael Hicks-Bench will 110
doubt convince the British taxnnyers
tltnt flonernl Stioruinu'h definition of
war wns correct.
Of Course He VViil Fight On.
V"fHBRE Is nothing surprlsl
, I In the fact that Attorn
, in me iiiri mat .iviiurimy
JL Cieneial Klkln has decided to
continue his gallunt battle
for the gubernatorial nomination. It
ii tine tluit Mntthcw Stanley Quay,
senator by virtue of Klkln's loyalty,
has with brutality unparalleled deciecd
that ISlkln shall be slaughtered. And
it Is no doubt true that the Quay-owned
camp-followers who have been protend
ing to be for Klkln will now slink away
from him and hunt the tent where the
dark horse Is being groomed. Any oth
er result would be Incomprehensible.
But the fact remains that a host of
the young Republican stalwarts of
Pennsylvania have set out to effeot Mr.
Klkln's nomination If possible; and the
trickery of Quay or the inconstancy of
the camp-followers supplies them with
no reason to desist from their enter
prise. If the outlook Is not so bright
today as it was before Quay delivered
his Judas stroke, that is simply a con
vincing reason why they should honee
lorth work all the harder. Their can
didate is clean, able and stalwart like
themselves.- Ills populaiity has been
bhown wherever tested and liai grown
wherever ho is known. In a fair and
manly appeal to the voters, against a
chorus of detraction and hired calam
ity wailinp, all emanating, it is now
believed from the Pittsburg influences
which later captured Quay. John P.
Klkln went gallantly before the Repub
licans of Pennsylvania, and won their
verdict wherever his challenge was ac
cepted. The odds against him are
stronger now than they wcie a week
ago, but we see no leasou to doubt that
he can yet face and vanquish any op
ponent dating to submit his candidacy
fairly before the people.
Of coulee Klliln is still in the Held
and if the counsel of his friends shall
prevail he v.111 stay there, to win or to
lose only when the last vote shall have
been counted, in the meantime, how
Is it among those who huvo platted
Klkln's destruction'.' They dare not
announce their man. They are playing
the old lilek of keeping him hidden
liom public notice until the delegates
have been counted and the deals all
dealt. Under the lofty banner of har
mony and reform no nre now seeing
easily the shabbiest: exhibition of boj-s
brutality In the modern history of
politics, and the amusing part of It is
that among the loudest applauders ate
those who have won what little renown
they possess as howling critics of boss
There is no question that a cloven
hoof Is behind the beef trust.

RKUAUPLKSS of how aeelli.ile

negotiations are, it I.t plain

death throes, For ono reason, not a

prisoners of war. Then, again, though
seemingly ineshuui.tihle, the Boer sup
ply of ammunition appears at last to
s-how signs ot giving out. Huperlor

islstlng power of lhc great tcnmlning

T 11111513 YEARS ago, on the
1'jth of this month, a num
ber ot Pennsylvanlans resid
ing In the metropolis organ
ized the Pennsylvania society of New
York, Their object was to cultivate
social intercourse, collect historical ma
terial relating to the state of Pennsyl
vania and to keep allvo its memory In
the chief city of lis neighboring com
monwealth. The chairman Is .Bishop
Potter; Andrew Carnegie, Charlton T.
Lewis, Sevoio Mallet-Provost and Rob
ert (J. Ogden are vice presidents; tho
chaplain is Rev. Dr. John V. Carson;
the treasurer, John A. HUtner, and the
secretary, Barr Fence. Among the S70
members are names of wide renown In
every walk of lite. The list of member
ship is almost a roster of the foremost
citizens of New York. Among non
resident members we note tho name of
Frank K Phillips. He Is Scranton's
only representative a worthy one, lint
there should bo more. Scranton's raiil
In Pennsylvania affairs calls for a
larger fellowship in this valuable so
ciety. The Pennsylvania, Society of New
York Issues a year book, the compila
tion of its secretary, Mr. Ferrer. The
second number of this has just been
received. In addition to the recoids of
the society it contains a large quantity
of carefully digested information relat
ing to Pennsylvania affairs, making the
volume virtually a "year book of con
temporary history and patriotism."
Thus space has been devoted to a se
lection of notable magazine articles on
Pennsylvania; a summary is given or
historical annlversatles, celebrations,
memorials and memorial portraits;
there is a digest of more significant
state legislation; notes on historical
buildings preserve the sequence of in
terest In tills fruitful field of Pennsyl
vania research; and, perhaps most im
portant of all, there is a department In
which the more notable books of the
year relating to Pennsylvania history or
achievement are bilefly but fairly re
viewed. To Pennsylvanlans everywhere
these records are serviceable. Their
promised future compilation on yet a
broader scale calls for appreciative an
ticipation. At the last dinner of this society, the
third annual "festival," It is euphemis
tically called, the address in response
to the toast, "The State of Pennsyl
vania," was dellveicd' by that eloquent
representative of Pennsylvanla-aer-tuany,
former Attorney Ooncial Ilcnsel,
We do not remember to have seen it
reported at the time, last December.

Ilec,nic in tho tiealy with us which wilt im
