Probably never before In the history
of tho county did the IleptihllciiiiH ap

of victory tlml lllls the managers ot tho
campaign which closes today. County
Chairman Taylor said yesterday that
there Is no possibility of any Republi

voiced the sentiment of eveiy man on
the committee. The half-hearted, un
oi'Ranliicd campaign of the Democrats,
while largely responsible for the con
ditions of which tills assurance Is
borne, Is not wholly tosponslble. Tho
well-directed, hard, earnest work of tho
Republican managers and candidates

Meeting at Dunmoie.
A very successful Republican mass
meeting, attended by fully COO voters,
was held in Odd Fellows' hull, Dun
more, Saturday night. Addresues were
made by ex-Speaker of the House of
Representatives John R. Fair, John M.
Harris nnd Hon. Jerry Snyder, of Al
lcntown. Seated on the platform in ndditloa to
the speakers were Attorney II. ('. Hub
lcr, who presided; Judge A. A. Vos
burg, H. AV. Bishop, Dr. J. C. R.iteson,
James H. Young, Dan Powell and V. S.
Jones. In Introducing the speakers,
Chairman Hubler urged upon the vot
eis tho need of electing a Republican
congress, that the hands of President
Roosevelt may be supported in carry
ing out the great principles of the Re
Mr. Farr, the llrst speaker, raised the
enthusiasm to the highest pilch by his
earnest words in showing the utter
fallacy of the claims of the Democrats.
Mr. Paulson's regard for the wage
earner was clearly shown by his veto
of the mechanics' lien bill, introduced
by Mr. Farr, which was intended to
give the mechanic tho same piotection
in securing his pay for work done as
is now enjoyed by the contractor.
Narrow Guaged Statesman.
i-Mr, Farr gave It as his opinion, an
opinion formed after several yeais of
active contact, that Robert K. Pattison
Is tho most iijrrow-gunged statesman
before tho public today. As an in
stance of this he referred to his twice
vetoing the compulsory education bill
introduced by Mr. Fair in both ses
sions of the legislatuie held during Mr.
Paulson's term as governor. The re
sults following the enactment of that
law under the Republican administra
tion have certainly shown it to have
been a measure much to be desired and
aptly Illustrates the general policy of
the Democratic party of standing still
and finding fault, with those who be
lieve things and do things for the good
of the citizens of this commonwealth.
Mr. Fair said that in spite ot the
noise and wlld talk of the , stand-still
party, Pennsylvania Is the best gov
erned state In the Union today, and ho
gave facts and figures vto support his
claim. He closed with an earnest ap
peal to those present to vote the
straight Republican ticket on Tuesday
and show to the world that the Key
stone state Is still the glbraltar of Re
publicanism nnd was not unnppreclat
Ive of the great work recently done by
Mr. Harris' Address.
John M. Harris was next Introduced
and made one of his characteristic
speeches, lu which he severely arraigned
the policies and general do-nothlngnefs
of the Democratic party. He lefeired
to the tariff question now being review
ed by the false prophet, Orover Cleve
land, and urged his hearers not to for
got the panics and depression that have
always followed In the foot step ot
Democratic meddling with the tariff
question, or Indeed any matter with
which they meddle.
Ho leferrod to the settlement of the
coal stilko now so happily ended
through the strenuous labors of Presi
dent Roosevelt and the matchless abll
Ity of the miners' leader, John Mitchell
to whom he referred In most glowing
terms. Such an ending could only have
come about In Republican times, when
labor In employed, the dinner pall full
and help In abundance, en mo from nil
parts of this great country.
Ho paid glowing tt Unites to the can
didates representing Republican prin
ciples flnd urged his hearers to com
pare the tickets fiom top to bottom nnd

Hon. Jerry Snyder, of Allentown, was
tho last speaker. He, at once, gained
tho friendship i( his heaters by his
many witty sallies at the expense ot
the Democrats. Owing to the lateness
of the hour he did not speak at length,
having addressed another meeting
earlier In the evening.
Tho piesenca of the American band
and tho North Had Oleo club added
much to the enjoyment of the evening,
the several selections being repeatedly
encored. I'nless all signs fall this bor
ough will give a surprisingly large vote
for the party of peace, plenty and pros
perity, North Scranton Meeting.
Another big nnd enthusiastic meeting
was held In the Auditorium In North
Scranton, Saturday night. The speak
ers were Hon. Jerry Snyder, of Alleiir
town; Assistant District Attorney
W. Gaylord Thomas, and Hon. John R.
Farr. Mr. Snyder was substituted for
Hon, Robert S. Murphy, of Johnstown,
who telegraphed he was too III to keep

JUDGE VOSBURG REPLIES
I TO SKULKING ASSAILANTS ;
Kdltor of The Tribune
Sir: A man who masks himself behind a signature ot a "Lawyer,"
or "I'ltlzen," nnd who docs not dare to sign his name Is like a snake In
the grass, which strikes unseen; and usually such an attack would be
entirely Ignored. I feel, however, that It Is due to myself, and to the
honorable position In which I have been placed by appointment, to reply
In a very few words to the malicious and unwarranted n Uncle which has
been made upon me. Taking these matters up In detail, I speak, first,
of the amount of the viewers' bills against the city. As these bills wcio
all approved by the court, and by the joint auditing committees of tho
councils, before the suits upon them were referred, no possible defence
could have been made against them As to the honesty unit Integrity of tho
viewers, which Is called Into question by these conuntilcatlons, such
men as D. J. Campbell, Robert J, Murray, esq,, James J. Mauley, and
others, are fully nble to defend themselves.
.Second As to the lefcree. I never suggested tho name or the rerereo
.J. In any of these cases; and I see no reason why, as tho representative of
the city, I should object to Mr. Dawson. He was not the only attorney
to whom cases were referred, and I did not object to others being named.
Third As to the necessity for a. reference. There was no npptoprl-
ation available to pay these bills; they were upon interest; they weie
valid claims, having been approved by the court. Yet 1 was informed
by counsel that the banks Would not purchase them unless judgment was
obtained, and was asked to icfer them for the purpose of making
them non-contestlble, and, therefore, negotiable. To this I assented as a
matter of courtesy, and also of duty to the claimants, knowing that the
city could not possibly be Injured thereby.
Fourth As to the authority given me by the council's to confess
judgment. This only applied to suits brought to recover the share of ..
the city ot the cost ot sewer construction, and not to viewers' bills. I
did confess judgment to A. II. Coons it Son, and to every other such
claimant who was willing to take a judgment by confession; but At tor-
ney M. F. Donohoe asked me to refer the eases of Donohoe & O' Boyle
against city, sitnting that the parties whom he lepresented were not
satisfied that a judgment by confession would be valid. To meet this
objection, and in compliance with this request, I agreed to refer these
Fifth As to the effect of the references upon the city. The city was
saved cost by there references in evry case, as the cost of an arbitration,
or of a trial In court, which would be taxed ngalnst the city, would far
exceed the cost taxed in the case of a reference.
Sixth As to tltb effect upon tho county. It ls cheaper for the county
to pay the referee, than to pay the jurors, and the other expenses inci
dent to a trial in court. No case can be referred without the consent of
the court, and such consent was secured in every one of these cases.
Many cases are referred at every term of court.
Seventh As to the amount of the bills of the referee. These bills were
approved by the attorneys on both sides, by the county solicitor In most
cases, and by one of the judges of
case. Tt can hardly be claimed that
t, make a raid upon the county treasury.
,, This is the whole matter in a
Farr followed the same lines they pur
sued In their addresses at the Dunmore
Mr. Thomas exptessed the belief free
silver to a certain degree and tailff
revision almost assuredly would be
issues In the lflOl campaign. If there
should be a falling off in the Repub
lican representation in congress now,
it would lend encouragement to the
Democrats to make a vigorous light on
these Issues, which, as experience has
shown, would mean unrest generally
and Industrial depression, paitlculmly.
With the Republicans victorious now,
tho Democrats will be likely to leave
these disturbing Issues alone, and the
country will rest easy knowing that
If the tariff is to be revised it will b
revised liy its friends.
Mr. Thomas spoke of the candidates
on the Republican ticket and paid a
particularly high tribute to tho worth
and ability of Judge Vosburg. whose
neighbois cheered him to the echo.

THE FUTURE OF
SUBJECT OP A TALK BY MRS.
I MARY HUNT OF BOSTON,
Strict Enforcement of Compulsory
Educational Laws Needed, nnd a
Discontinuance of tho Landing of
Immigrants Until Thoso Now in
This Country Ate Educated nnd
Americanized Predicts That tho
Saloon Must Perish or tho Republic
Will Saloon Tho Greatest Evil.
An exceptionally large audience greet
ed Mrs. Mary II. Hunt, of Roston, at
tho Klin Park M. 10. church, last even
ing to hear her speak on the subject,
"Tho Future of Our Republic." She
Is the world and national superinten
dent ot Scientific Instruction of tho
Women's Christian Temperance Union
nnd delivered several lectures before
tho county teachers' institute In this
city last week.
"One of the greatest enemies ot
self government Is the saloon and
all that It represents, and either
t lie saloon must perish or the
republic will perish," she said. "The
perpetuity of our government de
pends upon the character of our people
and there Is 110 influence which destroys
more rapidly than the alcohol influence.
It Is n narcotic poison, which, taken In
small parts, has power to create a
disease for more, and thus destroys
and deadens the brain power.
"There is a marked lneiease, how
ever, in flip number of temperate work
men, and this can be attributed to tho
Inlluonce of the public schools on them.
There Is also n marked Increase ot the
habits of other nations on us. and
while this Is truly a land of liberty
and a home of the oppressed, we are
the oppressed by reason of the habits
of others who come to our shores.
"The hour hns come when we should
say It is time to educate and Aineil
canlze those who are now among us
before others are allowed to come. We
a1o need a. more careful observance
of the temperance educational laws,
because the alcoholic habit is the most
dangerous element to our republic.
"God has given us abundant resources
and there is no other nation which has
such a future or so much wealth as
ours, but we ought to shut our gates
for awhile and educate the people In
this country now before permitting
others to land."
Mrs. Hunt believes the saloon will
perish through the enactment and en
forcement of temperance educational
laws, and petitioned her hearers to ex
ercise the power of the ballot In select
ing men who will represent this idea
and enact such legislation as will bring
about such results. She reiterated her
belief that the saloon must pcrlslr or
the republic will perish,
Vote for Joseph Oliver.
