For governor of Pennsylvania, on the
Issue of mi open field and fnli- play,
JOHN P. ELKIN, of Indiana,
Mibjoet to the will of the Republican
Thf next governor of Pennsylvania
will not owe his nomination to the girt
of any boHs. It will come to him from
the Republican people and lie will be

Appealing to the People.

I3y the time that these pilmaiies aie
held it Is hoped that the men who lined
Quay into his piesent unnatmal attitude
will hae decided upon the man thai
the deblre to foist upon the .Republicans
of Pennsylvania and will older him to
try his Inch against Klkin openlj. I'.y
the outcome of such a campaign Mr.
Klkln and all his lriends are perfectly
v illiug to abide. They simply want a
fair and open test of party prefeience.
They believe fiom the lesults in those
counties where such tests have been
made the lcsult throughout the
plate would be in their favor; but
whether that belief Is collect or not,
they stand leady to accept and nc in the popular veidlct. A cam
paign conducted on such u basis could
not possibly Injure the party, but on
the central y is necessary to piotect
obvious party interests.
rOn the contrary, should the thteaten
ed attempt be carried out to sandbag
Republican sentiment by forcing on the
ticket some candidate selected in secret
conclave by :i coterie of men who dare
not themselves go befoie the people and
who fear to let their leptesentallve go

political loyalty of John P. Klkln the

It Impossible ut any lime to fall In, In
the meanwhile It will notbe overlooked
by the country that the Republican
leaders In the house, the "organization",
so to speak, made most of their own
troubles themselves. They began by
opposing the piesldent and only enmc
to his support when self-interest com
pelled. Naturally their second attitude
was badly handicapped by their first.
The next time tlicy will undoubtedly
know better. For the present, there is
nothing lo do .but to hope that the
breach of Friday may be healed before
the fall elections nnd the party reunited
for the next tesl of strength.

Tariff Revision Coming:.
THE BREAKING away of sixty-four
Republicans rom
the control of the house "or
ganization" In the voting
upon the Payne reciprocity bill meas
ures tlie growing feeling of unrest in
orthodox Republican circles, and more
especially In the great agricultural dis
tricts of the Northwest and Middle
West, over the continuance of tariff
duties on articles no longer needing
protection, but actually, according lo
reputable testimony, in some cases us
ing protection to advantage the foreign
at the expense of the home consumer.
It no longer seems possible to doubt
tliat there- aie Instances In which
highly protected industiles have sold In
the foreign maiket for less than they
demand and exact hi the home mar
ket, notwithstanding the difference In
fi eights. A'e called attention, some
lime ago, lo a letter read before a con
feience of house Republicans by Con
giessmun Dick, of Ohio; a letter from
a manufacturer in Akron, O., a con
stituent of 2Ur. Dick, who vouched for
his icliabllity. In tills letter the charge
was made in detail, with names and
dates, that certain products manufac
tutod from steel could be bought of
American manufacturers in Germany
at prhes so much below the home
prices that if then weie no duty lo
pay, the American purchaser could bet
ter aftord to buy in Germany and le
sliip than to buy at home.""
At another conference, Mr. Ijlttlelleld,
of Maine, whose l'cpubllcanlsin, if un
lettered, is certainly substantial and
staunch, read a letter similar In kind.
It was from Charles It. Ilnnseom,
piesldent of the Eastern Shipbuilding
company, of New London, Conn., one
of the largest merchant ship-building
plants In the country, and among other
things it said: "it seems to me thut
the piotecthe duty on steel material is
not needed at the present time, as our
munufactureis are able to sell sl,eel in
England at HI", cents per 100 pounds,
thus underselling the British manufac
turers, but, owing to our protective
duty, at the same time this steel was
being sold In England at 93 cents,
Aineiican ship-builders weie paying
$1.." and upwaid per 100 pounds. At
the present time, 'steel material enter
ing into the construction of vessels l'or
foreign tiade la admitted free of duty.
I think it -would be quite beneficial to
siilp-balldiug Intei ests if this steel
could also be admitted fiee for vessels
which aie to engage in domestic trade."
The conditions heie noted aie viewed
witli suspicion by thousands of Re
publicans who are thoroughly loyal to
the doctrine of piotectlon as they un
derstand it; namely, a taiilf for pro
tection but not for extortion. Tlio de
cision of tho Itepubllcau leaders 'In
congress not to undertake a levlslon of
the prevalent tmiff duties at this ses
sion was undoubtedly wise, for the rea
son that many inoie pressing matters
demand attention and business condi
tions, being prosperous, should not be
unnecessatlly distuibed, Yet It is as
plait! as anything In the future can be
that the time is not remote when there
will bo either u revision made by hands
liiendly lo the tiiio doctrine of protec
tion or a revision by hands openly or
secretly hostile to all forms of protec
tion. According to the National Provlslon

Their is no room for further doubt tint Senator
(Juay was controlled In his remarkable course
towards Attorney (ieneral Klkln's candidacy by
Influential rorpoiatlon Influences, whose inter.
rsls lay In tl.o selection of c -Senator Hon C mi
cron as the Republican candiehto for governor.
There Is also every ic.ison to believe tliat this ar
rangement was made wilh the full knowledge ol
certain distinguished metropolitan editor.-, who
for some ".cars hue been Henntor Quaj's strong,
est critics, but who weie willing to lecognlzr the
laltcr's leadership, asserted In Its most offensive
form, if thereby they could re-establish them
selves in a position of influence with the patty.
This remarkable manifestation of public feeling
against tin former senator, an uprising that lias
gaiiied in foice dally instead ot abating, ns had
been eonfldcntlv nntloipalcel, has completely up
set and disconcerted the plans of the high polit
ical conspirator, and tlire is now- little doubt
that Mr. Cameron has been Inuriedly elroppcel
from their calculations. Commissioner Duihani,
upon whom Senator Quay must lcly for the bulk
of bis support in ids cIToit to contiol the Itepub.
llcan convention, lias positively refused to bo n
party to the move in the interest of Cameion,
and it is therefore piobable that we will hear Jess
and le.-s of that feature of the canvass. As no
second choice was considered hy Senator Quay
whc.n be launched his remarkable manifesto, tlie
senator finds himself unexpectedly vciy much at
eea, In the fare of a most determined opposition,
backed by a sentiment throughout tlie state that
is almost uiipircedenlul anel pioinisrs to be ir
resistible. With greater ligor and detciinlnv
lion than ever, Attorney (lateral Klkln has re
solved that tlie people of every county in tho
slate wheip Hip delegates remain to bp elected
shall have the oppoitunlly to ,oico their sent!
units on tlie question of their choice, and instead
of :in absolutely dictated, one-man convention,
the gathering at llarrisbuig in June promises to
be one of tl e most popular and liveliest in the
history of tlie party. Whatever were the mo
tives that prompted Senator Quay, lie has been
the indhect cause of infusing an intctcst in the
canvass tint was bcietofoie lacking and that will
go far tl instiling the success of the ticket
by an ovcivv helming ntajoiity, if tlie party nun
