Election day, Nov. 4.
In the midst of his other troubles,
Governor Stone lias a new charge to
face. The Schtult-Fahey convention
Bays he has "burglarized the state
treasury." The public awaits spectfl
catjons. Now to the People.
-W-HE ENDORSEMENT of Con
I gressman Connell by the real
JL Democratic convention yes
terdaythe convention com
prising a majority of the elected dele
prates which rebelled from the gag rule
of the Democratic machine reflects
clearly the sentiment of a large major
ity of the Democratic voters of our
county townsmen and neighbors of
Mr. Connell In the many years of his
life and activity In this community. It
was the personal compliment of those
who have known him in various rela
tions as citizen, employer and public
benefactor; who recognize that while
he is a Republican on national lines his
partisanship has never been bigoted
nnd he lias never let It stand In the
way of doing a personal service for a
constituent or a friend.
The politicians in the Democracy
tried hard to prevent this endorsement,
not, we believe, through any ill will to
Mr. Connell, but because they fanclPd
that It would interfere with personal
plans and ambitions. But the politician
element in any party is by no means
synonymous with the voting element.
The few who thought to stay the tide
of public endorsement of the present
congressman by parliamentary gag
have yet to reckon with the people of
the district. An element now enters the
canvass which divides the Democracy,
aligning the mass of the voters on one
side and a cluster of politicians on the
other. It promises to make the cam
paign both interesting and instructive.
The announcement that Lieutenant
Peary is homebound, alive and well,
will be received with pleasure by the
public. As Lieutenant Peary's oper
ations appear to consist in sailing
north and awaiting the arrival of the
rescue party, all will no doubt experi
ence relief to learn that the programme
has again been carried out without a

ton the ground that one of its purposes
Is a business purpose the sale of Mary
Baker Eddy's book, "Science and
Health," which, Judge Arnold alleges,
Is enjoined upon mmebers under pen
alty of suspension is probably sound
Jaw, since the courts are not empow
ered under the corporation laws of
Pennsylvania to grant charters for
business purposes. But it will have
no deterent effect upon the spread of
the Christian Science movement. On
the contrary, it will be advertised as
another act of "persecution" and af
ford a new leverage upon persons of
Mrs. Eddy announced to her follow

Reading Between the Lines.
THE CURIOUS announcement
Is made In the New York
Sun that the committee of
United States senators and
representatives appointed at the recent
Piatt conference to prepare a platform
for the coming Republican slate con
vention tit Saratoga Intends, among
other things, to recommend a more
stringent regulation of federal pen
sions. The article In the Sun goes on
to cite figures calculated to prove that
Uncle Sam Is paying 011b yearly much
more money for pensions than he ought
to pay, the Inference being that there
are many fradulent claims; and it
concludes with this sentence: "So
some statesmen are beginning to con
sider the Pension Trust ns well as other
The accuracy of the Sun's article
awaits confirmation. The chances are
that the Sun had no authority for Its
assertion. It is even possible thnt the
publication of tills article was In pur
suance of a policy, symptoms of which
are appearing In the Sun's columns, to
create discord among Republicans, In
retaliation against President Roose
velt's attitude toward the trusts. Since
the president declined to be called off
from his campaign for the correction
of trust evils It has been noticeable
that the Sun has changed over from
Its former praise and admiration of
Roosevelt and has undertaken, grad
ually but deftly, to subject him to pin
pricks. To cite Instances: The other
day it quoted the pledge made by
Roosevelt at Buffalo to carry out un
broken the policies of his predecessor,
and Invited the Inference, for which
there is absolutely no warrant, that in
demanding correction of trust evils
Roosevelt Is departing from McKln
ley's policy. Again, on another occa
sion, it invited the Democrats of New
York to nominate for governor Mr.
Cleveland's former law partner, Francis,
Lynde Stetson, coupling the suggestion
with very unusual praise of Grover
Cleveland, the Sun's one time bete
noir; and the impression to be derived
between the lines was that the Wall
street interests which the Sun Is popu
larly supposed to represent are getting
ready to take a fall out of Odell, pre
liminary to attacking Roosevelt In 1901.
And now this "pension trust" article
follows, making at least a suggestive
The Sun's treatment of Roosevelt Is
not of special importance, further than
as supplying a line on the probable
methods of Roosevelt's Wall street op
ponents. In that respect, it is really
Interesting. But we doubt that the
stiletto can put Theodora Roosevelt
out of the running. He has been up
against that kind of game before.
With a national debt of $3,S42,21G,930,

THE TEXT book prepared by
the Democratic congression
al committee denies that
there Is any evidence of pros
perity in the country. This denial
seems to . j -made In all seriousness
and with the purpose of having Dem
ocratic speakers take Issue with the
most stupendous facts that have been
developed in recent yer.rs. We have
only to glance at the statistics of the
last ten years to note the change In
conditions. From 1SU0 to 1S9j the
money In circulation Increased from
$1,400,000,000 to $1,000,000,000, and from
ISM to 11)00 the Increase was from
$1,000,000,000 to $2,200,000,000. From
1890, in the middle of the Harri
son administration, to ISO,", in the
middle of the Cleveland administration,
the bank clearings decreased from $58,
000,000000 to $,'0,000,000,000, nnd In the
half dozen years since these clearings
have increased to $114,000,000,000, or
more than doubled since the election
of McKlnley ns president.
The savings bank deposits were
$1,500,000,000 In 1S90, $1,800,000,000 lln 1S95,
and $2,500,000,000 in 1900. The Individu
al deposits in national banks Increased
rrom $1,400,000,000 in 1890 to $1,700,000,000
In 189."., and to $3,100,000,000 last year.
Tho value of farm animals decreased
from $2,400,000,000 In 1890 to $1,800,000,000
In 189."., and since that date nnd the
election of McKlnley these values of
farm animals have increased to $2,900,
000,000. Our per capita wealth In
creased from $1,117 in 1895 to $1,23.1 In
1900, The factories have been running
full time, the wuge earners, save whero
they have voluntarily chosen to be
Idle, have been at work, tho farmers
have been paying off mortgages nnd

Philadelphia, Sept. 18.
ONE OF tho most Imporlntit feat
ures of the present campaign will
bo ti showing of tho part thnt the
Republican party has played In
tho life of tho worklngmnn of 'Pciinsyl
vnnln. It Is a mnrvolous showing. Tho
present reign of prosperity, shared nllke
by every toller, whether It bo In mill,
forge, fnclory or on the farm, enn bo
traced to tho wise and beneficent working
of nntlonul Inws enncted nllko for tho
protection of labor nnd cnpltnl. The Ro
ptibllcnn party In tho nation has ever
been the slnunch friend of tho working
man. TI10 Rcpubllcnu pnrty In tho state
hns emphasized thin by ennctlng Inws
covering a period of Ihlrty-llvo years, for
tho comfort, convenience and protection
of tile working mini nnd womnn. There
lias been compiled within the past week
n complete list of labor Inws pnsspil In
Pennsylvania ') Republican legislatures
since tho closo of tho Civil wnr thnt Is'
one of tho most remarkable things of Its
kind In existence. Pennsylvania leads
every state In tho character of Us labor
legislation. Nearly 100 bills directly nf
feeling the men, women nnd children of
tho etnlo who mm their living by the
swont of their brows have been enncted
In tho past thlrty-llvo years.
At tho close of the Civil War, Indus
trial nlul commerclnl enterprises were In
a moro or less chaotic stnte. Tliousnnds
of widows, mothers uml daughters of sol
diers were compelled to eke out n living
ns renniKtrcsHes nnd dressmakers. One of
the first Inws passed by the legislature of
JSfin was nn net to exempt sowing ma
chines belonging to senmstrcsses from
levy and sale on execution or distress for
At this time the great anthracite coal
regions of the state were Just beginning
their period of development. There were
practically no laws looking to tho pro
tection of human life In the mines, and It
was n. Republican legislature that took
up this subject at this time, and during
all of tile succeeding years hns passed
laws whose object has been the protec
tion of life nnd limb of the tollers In tho
darkness of tho mine.
On page i."i2 of the pamphlet laws of
1S09 will be found one of the firt mining
laws enacted, entitled, "An Act for the
Better Regulation nnd Ventilation of
Mines, nnd for the Protection of the
Lives of Miners In Schuylkill County."
This wns only the beginning. It wns
followed by n general law for the safety
and health of persons employed In coal
mines, passed In 1870. In the same year,
laws were passed for the protection of
miners In various counties of the state.
In 1872, an net for the better protection
of the'wnges of mechanics, miners. la
borers nnd others was passed, as well as
a bill providing "For the Establishment
of a Bureau of Statistics on the Subject
of Labor and for Other Purposes." (P.
L. 1872. page 59.)
In all the years up to the present, there
have been numerous similar enactments.
In 1S72, one of the most Important meas
ures ever enacted Into a law, the record
of which can bo found In the pamphlet
laws for 1872, on page 1,175, was the act
to relieve laborers, worUIngmen nnd jour
neymen from certain prosecutions and In
dictments for conspiracy under the crimi
nal laws of the commonwealth. This act
has conserved the liberty of thousands of
wage earners in Pennsylvania In the past
It was the Republican party In tho
legislative session of 1S7I that passed a
law In relation to suits for wages, pre
venting stay of execution on judgment
obtained for $100 or les.
It was a Republican legislature that
appropriated the first money to aid In the
erection and maintenance of nn anthra
cite hospital in Pennsylvania. This was
Englnnd, with all its boasted civiliza
tion of centuries, Is away behind Penn
sylvania in the protection of women nnd
children in their employment. South
Carolina today Is a blot on tho map of
the south because of Its absence of laws
prohibiting tho employment of children,
and Us lax legislation regnrding the em
ployment of women In various industries.
In 1S7S, one of the most stringent laws
enacted by any legislature related to tho
employment of females in hotels, taverns,
saloons and eating houses or other places
for tho sale of Intoxicating and other
drinks! It was a Pennsylvania Republi
can legi-laturo that passed a law pro
hibiting female labor In and about the
coal mines nnd manufnctoiies thereof,
nnd for the preservation of the health of
female employes In manufacturing, me
chanical and mercantile establishments.
All through the years in which the
Republican party has been In power in
Pennsylvania It has endeavored to see
thnt full and nmple justice has been done
by employers, whether Arms, corporations
or Individuals, to the citizens of the state
In their employ. It was at the session of
1S7S that a law was passed fixing the
standard weight of a bushel of bitumin
ous coal. It was during the session of
1SS1 that the law was passed securing to
operatives and laborers engaged In and
about coal mines, manufactories of Iron
and steel and nil other manufactories, the
payment of their wages at regular Inter
vnls nnd In lawful money of the United
This Is one of the most Important laws
ever enncted, Middle-nged men today re
member the conditions thnt existed prior
to the pas-age of this act. Employes,
often of large concerns, were frequently
deprived of their earnings for from thirty
to sixty days; often only paid In part and
frequently with script, storo orders or
other alleged equivalents of value. The
passage of this Inw made compulsory the
payment of every employe, every work
ing man and woman, the wages duo him
or her In lawful money of the country
and at slated Intervals.
Every field of labor has been covered
by Republican laws enacted by Republi
can legislature'1. The law limiting tho
hours of labor of conductors, drivers and
employes of horse, cable und electric
railways, was passed by the legislature
of 18S7. The legislature of thnt year
struck the Dual blow at child labor In this
stnte by prohibiting the employment of
nny child under tho ago of 12 years by
any Individual, firm or compuny, to do
any work In nny mill, manufactory or
mine, or nny ork pertaining thereto,
doing a step beyond tho mero enact
menl of laws protecting coal miners, the
n-sembly of 1SS9 enacted tho law compell
ing the examlnutlon of miners II) the an
thraclto region, for the purpose of pre.
venting the employment of Incompetent
persons In thoso mines,
Tho factory law of tho state, which
regulates the employment and provided
for the safety of women and children In
mercantile Industries and manufacturing
establishments, und to provide for the up
polntmeut of Inspectors to enforce this
law, became operative through the uc
tlou of tho legislature of 1SS9.
So tho long line of beneficial laws might
he continued. The toller n tho tenement
