It may bo reassuring to remember
that no man who keeps the peace nnd
obeys the law has uny reason to fear
policemen, deputy sheriffs or the Na
Judge Pennypacker Talks.
JUDGE PENNYPACKER, Just
'prior to his retirement from
the bench nnd doubtless ns a
preliminary to the stirring can
vass whlrh he expects to lend In ner
son, granted to the Philadelphia Ledger
reporter an Interesting Interview on
The principal subject of the Judge's
talk was the article which he had
offered to the Atlantic Monthly de
fending Pennsylvania and Senator
Quay against vicious attacks: nnt ar
ticle which that periodical had declined
to print nnd which the Judge then had
printed in the Philadelphia Press nnd
in namohlct form. This article had said
that "Pennsylvania has no Ills that are
worthy of mention"; nnd had eulogized
Senator Quay as a "plain, simple and
kindly man" with "no propensity for
the acquisition of riches and a genius
for the organization and control of men
in masses," who possessed "this essen
tial of the highest Integrity that he
meets every obligation and keeps his
every word," and who has "perma
nently Influenced the destinies of the
Judge Pennypacker re-affirms every
word contained In that article. Con
cerning Senator Quay he goes even
further and asserts that in many ways
Quay Is a man of'jnoro power and
greater than Daniel Webster or Henry
Clay. He Instances Quay's part In the
election of Hunlson, in defeating the
enactment of the Force bill and In
laigely aiding the enactment of the
JleKInley tariff: and ho cites numer
ous other uircctions In which Quvij c
skill In the handling of men and com
binatioivs has been potent In far-reaching
results, though he never sought
publicity or applause. The Judge does
not claim that Quay Is perfect, but
that, dealing with existing conditions,
he Is forceful and effective, yet gener
ous nnd In: ul to friends.
Tasslng from Quay to the subject of
political Ills, Judge Pennypacker was
asked n leading nuestion about trolley
franchise legislation: and after medi
tating some time, he said4 ns reported:
"I have my own opinion regarding that
subject. I think the legislature was
probably somewhat too liberal with
those franrhlhcs. But they cannot lie
as liberal liete us la other states. Our
constitution puts limitations on the
powers of the legislature. We cannot
pass statutes Indiscriminately. Thut Is
the law of this stutc. The consequence
Is thut If people cannot get wliut they
want In this state they go to other
fitates to form their corporations, then
come here to ttiintuct their business.
That's all there la about it."
Evidently the Republican candldute
for governor Is inude of the kind of
material thut does not wuvor or bpncl,

tainly Is to bo admired for his loyalty

We congrutuluto the people upon the
prosperity that pervades every part oX
the country, tlmulatlngv every industry
to th) highest degree of activity, creating
in unprecedented demand 'for 'labor, and
rapidly advancing the United States to a
more' commanding position n the. com.
merce. of the world. The condition of the
country today and I'M "ue during the
last five years are a complete nnnwor to
the theories and predictions of those who
opposed Republican policies at thnt time,
nnd afford a conclusive argument In
favor of a continuance of tho policies
nnd the administration under which such
manifest benefits hnvo been enjoyed.
Wo dcploro the untimely dcnllt of our
great and liclovrd lender, William, Mc
Klnloy, and express our horror nt Iho
crime of his msusslnatlon. Wo mourn
tho loss to tho country, coming In the
Yulliics of hU powers and usefulness,
nnd pledge our fenlty nnew to tho pub

Wo dcclnra our conndonco In tho leader

our gratllicntlon that two honored repre

Wo Indorse his recommendation na to
reciprocity with Cuba, nnd bcllevo that
this policy Is necessary to prcsorvo and
complete tho bcnellccnt work wo hnvo
done In that Island, nnd that It will ho
mutually beneilcont to tho pcoplo of

Wo npprove tho determination of Presi

Approving his purposes nnd assured thnt

Wo express our npprovnl of tho work
done by tho lA'Uth congress In Its first
sesilon, anil our prldo In tho Important
part of that work borne by the Iowa
delegation. Tho legislation for the reduc
tion of taxation', for tho establishment of
civil government In the Philippines, for
the construction of an Isthmlun cnnnl,
for tho protection of our dnlry products,
with other mciisurcs of practical useful
ness, distinguish tho session.
Wo rejoice that tho llrm but enlight
ened policy punned In the Philippines
has secured pence In tho Islands, and
that tho work of educntlon, civilization,
upbuilding and development Is begun. Wo
urge that contention over our policy In
tho Philippines should now cease, nnd
tha bcnellccnt pinna of tho civil govern

Wo nro proud of tho high stnndard of

American families doing duty In tho

Wo stand by tho historic pollcy'of tho
Republican party In giving protection to

vindication to the extraordinary rapidity
with which our national resmrces havo
been developed und our industrial and
financial Independence secured. Wo favor
such changes in tho tariff Trom time to

the progress of our Industries nnd their
changing relations to the commcico of

ciprocity as tho natural complement of
protection, and urge Its development as
necest-ary to the realization of our high
est commercial possibilities.
Wo assert the sovereignty of tho peo

tions of capital and tho right residing in
tho people to enforce such regulations,
restrictions or prohibition upon cor

individual nnd society from abuse of tho
power which great combinations of capi
Wo cordially indorse tho position of
President Roosevelt In appealing to the
courts to secure regulations that will con
trol gieat combinations of capital which
prevent competition and control the In
dustries of tho people without legal
sanction or public approval. Wo favor
such amendment to the Interstate com
merce act ns will more fully carry out
Its prohibition of discriminations in ratc

We are earnestly opposed to nil legisla
tion designed to accomplish tho dis
franchisement of citizens upon lines of
race, color or station in life, nnd con
demn tho measures adopted by tho Demo
cratic party In certain states In tho union
to accomplish that end.
This platform was not the work of
ono or two men hastily accepted with
out discussion; It represents weeks of
careful study and public debate partici
pated in generally by the party mem
bership. It was the one thing hofore
the convention Involving controversy.
Attempts were made by certain in
terests to evade an expression as to
tariff revision but the sentiment of the
party overwhelmingly demanded not
only what Is said in the platform on
thnt subject but also unqualified In
dorsement of reciprocity, Cuban and
generul. In these particulars the voice
of Iowa Is the voice of every Republi
can state west of tho Allegheny moun

A TALE OF
From tho Now York Tribune.
MIDSUMMER of 1001, tho time; tho
tho mountain fastnesses of Sntnar
tho place. A Btrnggllng lino of
. emaciated men comes tumbling
down the stony bed of it dried up moun
tain stream. Tholr uniforms are In tat
ters, their shoes gorio. With bleeding
feet ilnd bloodshot eyes, they emorgo
from tho depths of tho forest. Tho air
is that of u furnace. Not a leaf Is stir
ring, llcfoto them a morass bnklng In
tho iloreo rays of tho noonday sun. Be
yond tho blue sea lazily lapping n stretch
of sandy beach. Tho atmosphere seems
to vlliintp. mid Mm mnlsmntle stenches
of decaying matter sap tho ebbing
strength of that handful or men.
For weeks they have crossed mountain
ranges, following trails lined with poi
soned npcius and dotted by bnmboo pit
falls. Foot by foot they havo cut their
way through trackless jungle. For days
thoy havo subsisted on nothing but what
tho forest furnished leaves and bark.
They havo carried their sick and wound
ed along ns best they could. Their
tongues nro parched, their skin's burning
with nn nll-coniumlng fever. Their hnnds
run with blobd from contact with count
less thorns; their bodies arc covered with
fostering sores, upon which slimy leeches
feed. Tho bruin Is In a whirl nnd every
nerve seems xhnttcicd. Tho least noise
tho flutter of a pnrrot In tho branches,
tho mocking cry of a monkey squatted
In the shade of n palm, tho rustle of a
hnrmlcs lizard amid tho tnll grass of .tho
opening causes nn excruciating tension
of tho nerves and the agonizing collapse
after It is all over.
And bo they march no, drag them
selves along brooding; brooding over
comrndes whoso bones He blenching In
tho forest, waylaid, murdered and mutil
ated; brooding over others disembowelled,
stubbed In tho back, while helpless, by
women and children; ' brooding over
others still with throats cut amid tho
fumes of poisonous drugs or In tho sleep
produced by narcotics; brooding over
luckless otfes, fallen wounded Into the
hnnds of tho enemy, buried allvo or
strangled; brooding over tortures which
only tho refined cruelty of a savage could
devise: brooding over tho life they lend
nt forty odd cents a day, and what tho
future has In store for them. It Is tho
story of a score of expeditions In the
Philippines; tho story of tho guide's
treachery, of tho ambush, of tho superb
stand mndo by flio soldiers, of the rout
of tho enemy, of tho drum-head court
martial and the vengeance, swift nnd
summary, taken upon those found guilty.
In tho frenzy of that moment, the tradi
tions of a lifetime arc cast to the- winds,
and tho boasted civilization of centuries
Is shown to have sunk but skin deep.
"War" indeed ' is hell."
A change of scene. Tho porch of a
cottage overlooking the placid waters of
a beautiful lake. Behind tho mountains
which inclose It on every side tho moon
Is Just rising. Its rays strike tho ripples
and causo them to break Into myriads of
soft lights. A cool breeze, ladin with tho
scent of fir and pine, sweeps down from
the mountain tops. Now and then tho
splash of an oar, the soft laughter of a
woman's voice, the strain of muslo In tho
distance, interrupts tho peaceful quiet.
"Far from tho maddening crowd," the
storm and stiess of the outsldo world
are here forgot; the rnoanncss and rivalry
of the struggle for existence find here
no lodgement. In tho midst of one of
nature's loveliest spots, Indeed, could
aught reign but peace and goodwill to
ward men? In the prcsenco of such re
pose nnd loveliness could bitterness and
mnlico oveicomo tho better instincts of
the soul? " ,
A group of men In earnest conversation
on tho porch. 'They have evidently just
left the table. Reclining In easy chairs.
In faultless evening attire, they enjoy tho
fingrancc of their llavanas. The aroma
of Mdclia Is In the air. Through tho
half-opened door you look Into a bril
liantly lighted room where ladles In even
ing toilets sit conversing. Tho sound of
a piano breaks In occasionally upon tho
hum of conversation nnd stills tho gay
laughter of a group of children. On the
porch the discussion continues; In fact,
waxes warm. "Demoralization of tho of
ficers and soldlcis of our army In the
Philippines" "Tho testimony of repre
sentative Filipinos jealously and sys
tematically suppressed" "Judicial and
impartial examination on the spot de
nied" "Adding cant and hypocrisy to
iruolty" "A general recently promoted
for the capture and killing of those.
whose bread and cult he, starving, nau
just begged nnd eaten" "Processes of
mediaeval Inquisition" "Impudcnco of
tho mockery" "Older to kill those
wounded in conflict" "Depth of tho gen
eral demoralization" "Audacious menda
city" these and others are among the
phrases which are being rolled, liko
sweet moisels, under tho tongue of ono
of tho men In tho group. Ho rends from
a paper, and ns ho concludes thoro nio
sign, of enthuslastlo approval. "A
crusher," says one. "It will set them
thinking," icmarks another, lighting a
fresh cigar. (Price: tho day's pay of a
private In tho Philippines.) 'tThat ve
ourselves aro responsible persons needs
scarcely to bo alleged, much less proven,"
chimes in a third, unctuously, us ho
pours out another brandy. "Tho biggest
political card yet" Is tho universal judg
ment. "Down with Imperialism I" And
then, there Is a quiet chuckle.

it dozen collar buttons mado of a metal

capsules oio put up to carry them In.
Ho took both boxes, homo, handed thorn
to his wlfo and tho same day sho began
to take tho medicine, After sho had
taken twelves doses sho was entire

this tlmo her husband lost his collar

It empty. A bilef Investigation showed
that the capsules in tho pill box wero

been entirely curcdof dyspepsia.
