The Pittsburgh Post on Tuesday
last announced that State Treasurer
Mackey had a large Deposit with
the Union Banking Company which
failed a few days before, and that
the State would lose halt a million
or more. The same day Mr. Mack-
ey telegraphed lion. IL 13. Swoope
that the report was false, and the
fiState would not lose one dollar by'
the failure of that or any other Bank . :
`"The Post was compelled to retract,
land thus the first attempt/of the
Dem , lcratic Press to assail hp, or
his management of State , nanees
-has redoundea - to hised-tt. It is
viell known that / tinder the former
management of - . the Treasury the
bulk . of State Deposits -were ',vith
Jay Co — okft -- and Company, and in the

- three out-of five would ha ve named
those very banks. Mr. Mackey is
entitled to the credit of saving the
money of the commonwealth. His
wisdom and foresight alone prompt
ed the withdrawal of:, the public
monies from those institutions. Had
tke Money been lost he would have
been acquitted of blame because be
bad the money deposited in what
was at the time regarded, as the
safest banks in the State. He saved
the State half a - million of d0:.:,1,,
and for this be is entitled to the
gratitnde of every tax payer in the
commonwealth. When the Chicago
fire brought ruin to Philadelphia
and other eastern cities, causing the
'saspension of a number of banks of
,the best standing, among others that
of C. F. Yerkes and Company by
which the State lost one hundred
arid fifty thousand dollars, he
stepped forward and assumed the
loss, paying every dollar into the
`Treasury. There is probably not
another man in the State that would
or could have dole the same. In all
our financial difficultieS he has pro
tected the Treasury from loss, and
maintained the credit of thy- Corn
Inonwealtb. Because of is great
ability and his successful manage
ment of our finances, he was nomi
nated byslnlepublican party for
election by the people under our
amended, constitution and the peo
ple have already ratified that nomi
nation by an indorsement seldom
ever received by a candidate. His
election is beyond doubt - and by a
majority such as no man ever re
ceived at an election other than
Presidential, since the organization
of the coinnionsiealth: as an officer
be has had nor superior and • few
_equals, and as a man he has more
warm devoted frieAs than any
.4i:her public man in the common
wealth. TLS• people are his debt
ors and cannot afford to dispense
with his services. The more his
inana;:ement of the Treasury is un
derstood the more this fact will be
apparent and the larger his majori
ty will be. For this reason the
Democratic press, and politicians
let him alone and have conceded his
election ever since his almost unani-
TUE Governor has been asked \ to
sign a number of bills which i pA Leg
islature never passed. He thinks
the State might dispense with the
attendance of members' and save
in)ney thereby, by permitting the
c:erks to pass all necessary laws.

livention is called to this sugges-

The official treasury statement for.
August, showed that during that
month the public debt was decreas
ed six milltion seven h,undzed and
fifty two thousand eight hundred and

country like a cliP of thunder out of

irEisk and Hatch, HEnry Clews and
Co, and a large number of smaller
concerns were prostrated by the se
verity of the stroke. The panic
that resulted from these failures was
wide spread and deplorable, and
caused a general calling in of loans,
and increasing demands upon the
, banks- The stringency of the mon
ey market beonme almost unendura
ble, and many firms could not get
money on their securities, and were
thus forced to go under. The price
of stocks fell and fluctuated beyond
all qxample, and enormous rates
were paid to have stocks carried
over night. It is impossible to sum
up the injury that has overtaken
tine business community. The crash
has taught a lesson that will not

The following section fixing the

to give the mino44ty the --control of

OWING to the local popularity of
Judge Ludlow in Philadelphia,
Judge Gordon may iun behind his
ticket in that city. Tho cog , try,

will lose there. Judge Gordon is
more popular, the more he bec6mes
known, and his character and quali

that h... will be useful on the Bench, -
and - the peer of any one of his associ
ates. We hope that every Republi
can in the county go to the
polls and vote for Judge Gordon.
Dui the panic in Philadelphia
when every hour witnessed the sus
pension of some Banking institution,
a Reformer rushed down Third street
exclaiming: "Thank God Widener

is going up every day and will be

it ought to be.
