Samuel V. Pennypiicker.
Judge Pcnuypnckcr was received with
n truly enthusiastic ovation. Lawrence
band In the balcony played "Hall" to
the Chief." but the music could scarce
ly be heard above the din of cheering
and yells that rose spontaneously from
all parts of the house and continued
for some minutes, Attorney General
J.CIkln came on the stage when the
ovation was on nnd his appearance oc
casioned n very noticeable accentua
tion of the applause.
After a few prefatory remarks con
veying congratulations on the size of
the meeting and gratitlcatiou at the
presence of so many ladles, Judge
Pennypacker proceeded substantially as
Pennypacker Address.
To a voter making his decision ns to
how lie will cast hih ballot, It seems to
me useless to listen lo campaign orators,
or even candidates. They present their
cause as advocates, and, consequently, In
the very bet light possible. Nor is ll
very much benefit lo rend party plat
forms. They contain, for the most part,
campaign platitudes. To my mind, the
only proper way for a voter to choose
between parties is to compare tho work
they have done.
There is excellent opportunity for one
to compare tho work of the two great
parties of the country. Hotli have had
control, ut times, of tho affairs of the
nation and of the slate. Judge of them
ns you would of Individuals by their
It would be mi endless ta-k to enumer
ate the benefits the Republican party has
conferred on tho nation and stale. I pro
pose to call attention to only a few of
tho conspicuous benefits.
In tho first place, the Republican party
made this country a. nation. Consider
what Is involved In this thought. Think
of this nation with its T.l.OOO.COrt people
.stretching across the continent, from the
Atlantic to tho Pacific, and' ultimately
destined to number ."nO.OnO.OOO people
stretching, not only nerot-s the continent,
but across the sens. AVe are what Rome
was 'J.flOO years ago: what Holland was
in the Sixteenth century, anil what Kng
lund was yesterday the foremost nation
on earth.
When did this country become a na
tion? Nations are growths and develop
ments out of existing conditions. The
signing of tho Constitution did not make
this country a nation. After the signing
came the Interpretation, Debates Inter
pretating the Constitution, by such able
men as Webster. Calhoun and Clay, did
not make the nation, but only served to
point out tho diverging lines of the Con
stitution. The Democratic thought was that this
country was not a nation, nor to be a
nation, but a bundle of sovereign states,
each free to sever Itself from the others
nnd take its sovereignly with It, any lime
It saw fit. Nor vu it the decisions on tho
Constitution by Marshall and the other
famous men ot the Supreme court that
made the nation. Tills country only be
came a nation when Pickett led Ids fam
ous charge at flettysburg and struck the
Philadelphia brigade; when that peerless
Pennsylvania soldier, neneral George II.
Stende, wrote with his sword on the rocks
of Kulp's bill and Round Top the final in
terpretation of tho Coiiititutlon.
Other Achievements.
ns to wages nnd conditions of employ
ment. H affected every mine, mill, forge
nnd furnnco In thin broad land. It af
fected every man, woman nnd child In the
land, for ll nfTccted the household nnd the
fireside. There was a dread of great suf
fering from cold as the winter np
proaclied, livery head ot a liouso was
rearful of the possible consequences of a
continued coal famine.
.WIm t Democrat, what Democratic, or
ator, statesman or politician lifted bis
hand or raised his voice to ameliorate Ilia
existing conditions? Not one. Tho hope
of the Democratic party In this campaign
rested on the continuation of that disturb
ance. The Republican senators of Pennsyl
vania, the Republican governor of New
York and the strenuous and able Re
publican president of the fulled Slates
labored day and night to bring the con
flict to an end and they succeeded,
Tile strike Is over. The men are back
nt work and cure more earning wages;
the soldier can fold up his tent and go
back to his home, nnd the hopes of the
Democratic parly disappear In the ins
tance. Labor Legislation.
In the way or state, legislation the Re
publican parly has been ever mindful ot
the Interests of Inbor. Thorn are on the
statute books upwards ot fifty laws passed
In tho Interest specially of the working
man. Thete Is the law selling foith ids
right to organize; laws for the safety of
the men in the mines and the women In
the mills, laws Insuring his wages and
giving wage cases preference on the trial
lists, nnd many others of similar Im
port These laws might bo extended.
There might be a law for the supervision
of engineers, looking for safely, and one
regulating plumbing, looking to lieallli,
Rut above nil, all laws shouldc be equally
applied to employer and employe Impar
tially and fairly. '
Oar Democratic friends In this cam
paign are so doleful, dreary, dismal and
wretched that their arguments suggest
only such notes as night birds sing from
a graveyard. It' seems to me that Mr,
Cut luie, it lie wanted lo be truthful,
might own up that his party Is dead. A
corpse was once fished out ot n river in
a badly decomposed slate. It wns Identi
fied by n wealthy citizen as bis missing
brother, and an undertaker was given
orders to spare no expense In the fu
neral arrangements. While the body was
being prepared for Inula I, the lower Jaw
of thu corpse dropped disclosing a set ot
false teeth. This moved that It was a
case of mistaken Identity. The wealthy
citizen declared It was not his brother
nnd countermanded the directions regard
ing the funeral. The undertaker, in dis
gust, addressed Hie corpse nnd said, "Von
blame fool if you had only kept your
mouth shut, you at least would have had
a decent burial, it seems to me thnt If
the Democrats had only the sense and
good tnste to keep still we might at least
see to it that they are given a decent
Laughter nnd applause, loud and
long-continued followed the Judge as
he retired to bis seat.
The United German Singing societies,
led by Prof. Kchmitt, of the .lunger
Jlaennerchor, rendered a selection in
German, which was warmly applauded
by the audience. Judge Pennypacker,
in whose honor the societies gnve their
service, was especially enthusiastic In
npproval of the singing.

Not only hi bioad national affairs lias
tho Republican party conferred benefits
on thu people of this country. To make
us a nation, that one great pivotal feat,
deserves our everlasting gratitude, but
that is not all. Suppose you look around
you and see some of tho other achieve
ments of tho Republican parly.
I was at South Sharon a. few days ago.
A great steel mill is located llieTe. It is
halt a mile long. Three years ago a far
mer reaped oats from the tract on which
tho mill is located. About thnt mill, liv
ing on land that three years ago was a
farm aro U'.OuO persons supported by this
one Industry. This mill was built up by
tho application of Republican principles,
I wns In another plucc, not many days
ago, where 1 saw farther evidence of tho
licneflecucp of tho application of these
Republican principles, This was In New
castle, In the far western Dart of the.
state. Tlierojiiro fifty tin mills there. You
will remomber In President MoKlnley's
first campaign how the Republican ora
tors talked of "Tin, Tin, American Tin,"
Tho Democrats said il'could not ba nniti

tho Republicans was all buncombe. In

Mr. Elkin's Address.
The Democratic party bus been wrong
on every great question. They have been
defealed time after time, but they come
up smiling and akcd the people 'to for
get the past and elect theai again. When
they gave the country their iden of indus
trial legislation, In tho form of the Wil
son tariff hill, utter the election of Cleve
lund, we know the prostration of busi
ness that followed; how capital disap
peared from sight and idle men trumped
up nnd down tills land, looking for work.
When 1 think of this, I wonder how any
Democrat can seriously desire the suc
cess of ids party. Why should they want
tt to be successful, In view of what tho
iiepuiiilcan party has done for the coun
try? This greut country was never at a
lower ebb than when the Republican con
vention met in St. Louis In ISfiO. Twenty
.thousand men enme together to do some
thing to relieve the country from the ter
rible pro-tratlon It found Itself In. To
that convention came delegates from the
silver slates of the West, who said that
unless a silver plank was Inserted In tho
Republican platform, they would sweep
the Western states Into the Democratic
column and defeat the Republican party.
Hut the leaders of the party Mild 'it
was not honest to nsk the workmen ot
the eoi'ntry to accept Ids pay in a dol
lar tluu wns not a dollar, and they de
cided that even If they went down in de
feat they would declare in the platform
for an honest dollar and they aid,
though the stoutest heart doubted wlint
the result would be.
Then came that new lender of Demo
cracy, who. with ono speech, made his
name ring In every homo In the country,
lie wns nominated, and ho said that he
would leave his home In Nebraska and
Invade the enemle country, meaning tho
Nasi. He did Invade It. and tho Demo
cratlo party was saved from its folly and
the country from Its peril. Tinder the
leadership nt William McKlnley there wus
no enemies' country, the country took on
a new life nnd marched forward to a
prosperity such as this country bad never
before known, to the music of singing
forges nnd humming spindles.
Would you be responsible for going
back to the old days if your vote was to
iieeine tun election ot a president? T
ihliik not! How can you prevent a repe
tition of the. dark days that preceded
isn7? Uy voting the Republican ticket In
this great Keystone stale, the very nrcli
of Republicanism, Hut, you say, wo nie
with you In national affairs, but we don't
llko the way the affairs of the state arc
conducted. Now, let in Inquire into thnt
a little. Let's see what the present ad
ministration has done for you.
Something Worth Saying-,
When Governor Stono entered upon the
duties of Ids ofllce, tho state had a do.
licit of W.00,000 in lis trensury. He culled
the heads of the various departments
about him and told them that something
must bo done or the credit of the state
would be impaired. Ho put all of them
to doing Komclhlng. Tho department I
have tho honor to preside over collected
K'.fiOO.O'iO ju taxes from delinquent com
panics, supposed to be Insolvent; the up.
illtor general's department collected a
million, nnd so It went, As a result or
what has been done when the llscal year
ends on Nov, .10, we will have a surplus
In tho treasury of (9,000,000, and our state
will be in better financial condition than
any other In the whole sisterhood, That
Is something to have to say.
When tliis administration began work,
the state had 18,000 acres of forest land,
and It wus deemed advisable lo Increase
this holding, for the preservation of our
streams. We now have 550.000 acres of
laud, and I venture the assertion that
years from now tho resources of Pennsyl
vania will como largely from the forest
reservations the state has acquired.
When the new capital was started there
was a great fear In some quarters that
there would be a tcunUal. Hut there

wasn't. Wo are going to have a capital
worthy the state, and there Is now in tho
treasury enough of money to pay for It,
if we never collected another cent.
Tho freshet of last spring swept away
the bridges over a number of navigable
streams, i-ome thirty or forty, I believe,
In this part of the state. These the state
Is rebuilding at a. cost of about $500,000,
and there Is money In tho treasury to
pay for them. That relieves the county
and relieves local taxation, and Is doing
something: for you.
While the last legislature was In session
it passed ulJ laws and of that great uuir.
bery only thirty-three were criticized. It
It was admitted that these were bad,
threo out of 512 would be a mighty good
record, I think.
Frequently people say lo me, "Klkln,
are you going to vota tho Kepiiblloan
ticket this year?" There bus never been
any doubt In my mind nbout it. I al
ways have been a Itepubllcan and I nl
ways will be. AVo had a lively fight down
ut llaiisburg last June for a nomina
tion for governor. It wns not a game ot
ping pong, but a good square-toed gamo
of political foot ball. Ilefoui the conven
tion and the day of the convention 1 said
to the people ot Pennsylvania that no
matter who was nominated I would be
shoulder to shoulder with him in the cam
paign and 1 am hero tonight to do my
best for every Republican candidate, from
the distinguished Jurist who heads tho
ticket, to the lowest county candidate.
Why 1 never voted a Democratic ticket
In my life; I would not know how to vote
a Democratic ticket,
Suboinating- Self.
That could not be. To me It would bo
u humiliation If I thnuslit the test of
my loyalty lo the Republican party
would bo measured by my ability to sot
an ofllce. We can get along without of
fices, hut wo cannot go back to tho dark
days before tho Republican party res
cued tho country; tho party that has
given us commerce In every clime. Thu
American people do great things under
tho stimulus given by the wise laws the
Itepubllcan party has passed.
Already wo hear tho whispering of the
tariff revisionism nnd thero Is dancer In
their whisper, 1 would like to see Penn
sylvania send back a solid delegation this
year ngalnst whom the waves of tariff
unrest would beat In valu. I would like
to see you return lo congress your dis
tinguished citizen, Hon. William Council,
who has done so much for his district,
his state and the country while In con
gress. You ought to elect your county ticket
and you ought to sqnd men to the legis
lature who will be ti'liu to the policies ot
tho Hepubllcun party,
My friends, don't let us undervalue our
citizenship, You ought to go to the polls
on election day and vote for some ticket
anil If you vota tho Republican ticket 1
bellevo you will feel better. Tho Demo
rents don't see any good In the country
or the government. They aro wrong.
Wo are living hi the greatest days of the
world. W have difficulties confronting
us and will have dlfliciiltles, but I hey will
ba overcome, 1 know they will, As
Archdeacon Parrer said before leaving
America, "To despair of America would
be to despair of humanity."
Let us not grow despondent. There Is
no cause for It. I want to say to my ite
publlcan friends in ueknwumiu that all
this talk is as nothing It you do not go to
the polls and vote. You have had your
little difficulties and your repulses, but 1
want you to rally 'round the flag ot Re
publicans which has done something for
you and for me.
The North Kml Olce flub sang an
Inspiring number and Attorney Gen
eral Klkln was followed by V. M.
Brown, the Itepubllcan candidate for
lieutenant governor, who spoke in part
as follows;
Candidate Brown.
If sweet singing could win votes, I feel
confident that Lackawanna county would
give the biggest Republican ninjorily in
Its history this year. I have seen sumo
splendid mass meetings, so far this year,
but I luivc no hesitancy in saying thnt
this l the gritudot meeting we hnve so
far addressed. The people on the other
side nro going around the state malign
ing and abusing the people of Pennsylva
nia, but 1 feel sure that If they could s.o
this splendid gathering, they would bo
forced to admit that thero Is somo hope
for the future.
The Democratio urn tors tell us that
there are no issue save state Issues,
which they themselves have set up, and
they go about vllllf'ying ami traducing,
Instead of arguing. If you ask them how
they stand on the Philippine question,
they tell about some member ot the legis
lature who got i little rukc-iiff; if you
ask them what their views on the money
question nre, they tell nbout some back
woods legislator who got lilm-elf elected
to bo bought, nnd who sold himself; If
you ask them for their views on iho
tariff question, they rehearse u scandal.
They seem to lie living In a swamp, and
all efforts to get them up into the broad
sunlight of honest discussion Imvu been
We hnvo u right to ask them what
they would have done with the lu.liiu.ww
brown people whom fate lias thrown Into
our care. Wo hnvo a right to discuss this
question nnd the other great nntlonal
questions, mid we are going to. Winn
tho election Is over, I feel sure that the
people of this stale wilt be happy that
this bit of slander will hnve passed.
Tlllt thero I-. method ill the madness of
tho opposition. They know and lvulizu
that tho great Issues which are being
discussed in oilier states ure proper sub
jects for discussion here, but they seek
to confuse and blind the voters Into
thinking otherwise. They know that tho
people of Pennsylvania are loyal to their
soldier hoys who nre In tho fur-off Islands
of the sen. They know that the people of
1'ciiuaylvnuln nro Just us capable of ser
iously considering the trust problem us
are the people of other states, and they
remember thnt llaer Is a Democrat.
Is n rirst-Clnss Stnte.
Mr. lliitbrle is going around Mi.Wng
that this Is a third-rate state. 1 want to
suy to you that Pennsylvania Is not a
third-class state; ll Is essentially a first
class state, and tho bet of the llrst-class
states, Pennsylvania, hi tho last year,
produced sixty-two percent, of tho coal;
ilfty-four per cent, of the r'.col, thirty
nine per cent of tho glnss, twenty-one per
cent, of tho leather, nnd twenty-live- per
cent, of the silk produced In this coun
try. We should bo proud of th position
Pennsylvania holds among her lister
commonwealths. She Is lirst and fore
most In the commercial world, bec-auso of
her Integrity and high credit.

After the Cumbrian Glee club had
rendered stirring selections, W. J.
Hclmeft'er, of Chester county, superior
court reporter and one of the younger
orators made n splendid speech.
Ho began by describing with wonder
ful eloquence tho greatness of Pennsyl
vania which he declared to be the
"real Kinplre state ut the union."
Kvery election, he declared, Is a great
trial nt which great and momentous
questions are decided. There are Issues
In every election but In this campaign,
be said, iho Democrats hnve not raised
one for submission to the Jury of nearly
1,000,000 voters. They have raised no
question that one might pin his faith
to; nothing on which a voter can bank
his determination, he declared.
Important Campaign.
"It Is my sincere and honest belief,"
said' he, "that the most Important and
supreme issue in this campaign Is the
result which will follow the election
on November -l in the country at large.
Out beyond whore the Mississippi tlows
there bus been waging for three months
a splendid political contest, a grand
battle which bus for its object tho
placing of the silver slates In tho Me
publlcun column so that tho Itepubll
can party can win Us national battles
without the aid of New York,
"If you want to discourage the men
who ure waging this war out beyond
the Mississippi and If you want to
render tho greatest possible service to
wards the election of a Democratic
president In 1901, vote the Democratic
ticket this your. If you want to inuko
the next presidential election sure for
llepubllcunlsni beyond periidventure; If
you witnt Theodore Roosevelt to lead
the party on to victory: vote the Re
publican ticket and prove to our
brothors In the West that Pennsylvania
Is absolutely Inyul to her old time Re
publican faith."
Mr. Hchaefor referred to the fact that
after serving for ten years on the
bench Judge Pennypacker was iigulu
uouilnuteil by the Itcpubllcans nnd a
week later endorsed by tho lJeiuocratlo
convention. This he declared to bo the
highest possible tribute that could bo
paid to his honesty and devotcduess
to principle,
"I want every voter within the sound
oT my voice," snld he, "to remomber
that we are lighting the skirmish be
fore the Ida battle of 1001 and that its
up to lilni to say whether he will send
us congressman to Washington u iie
publlcuu who will stand for Republican
principles or a Democrat who will aid
in hutching schemes for thu revision of
the protective tariff, which has meant
so iiimh to this state,
"You have here us your Republican
candidate for congress one of the most
useful, men that Pennsylvania over
sent to represent her ut Washington; a
inuu who went nnd who has voted right
on every question since; (applause); a
man who Is In every way worthy of
your heartiest and most loyal support,"
