THE FIGHT AGAINST PENROSE
A PROSPECTUS of the plans for
the Progressive campaign In
Pennsylvania, beginning with
the primaries next May, an-
Bounaes that Theodore Roosevelt and
Albert J. Beverldge will direct the
fight against the re-election of United
Btate Senator Boles Penrose.
"Whether Justly or unjustly, Roose
velt attributes his loss of the last Re
publican nomination largely to Pen
rose, and, as the Philadelphia Public
Ledger puts It, he Is determined to
Thus, we are forced to the con
clusion that the object of Fllnn and
his foreign allies In stirring up an
other war for 1914 Is not to promote
the welfare of Pennsylvania, but
merely to punish Penrose. Penrose is
to be made the center of attack. Pro
gressivlsm in Pennsylvania will stand
or fall on Penrose. The prosperity of
this Commonwealth will be subordi
nated to the prosecution of a private
grudge. The opinions of 2,000,000
voters on the great economic questions
of the hour are to be brushed aside
while one man "gets square" with an-,
other for a real or fancied offense.
Are we Interested In the tariff? Are
B' we anxious that Pennsylvania should
V retain her place among the protec-
W tionist States and that she should raise
lier voice against the free trade blun
der of 1912? Some other time. Roose
velt must punish Penrose, now.
Are we alarmed over the shrinkage
In trade and the steady and rapid In
crease in unemployment? These are
minor matters wo are not to be per
mitted to consider nfext year, because
Roosevelt wants to "get square" with
Are we inclined to believe that
Pennsylvania and her great and varied
Industrial interests will require the
•ervlceß of a man In the Senate who
haa Influence with the Senate; who has
wide experience In political affairs, In-
tlmate knowledge of the State's re
. pourcea an<l needs, unusual executive
ability and a capacity for work that is
/ aulte extraordinary? These things are
at eeoondary Importance. Our one and
only duty In Pennnsylvania at present
la to see that Roosevelt Rets back at
Panroae. Far better, a Dean I/ewls,
(with his theoretical learning and his
practical Ignorance, or a J. Denny
O'Nell, with not much of anything
that we know of, except a Fllijn en
tdoraement; far better, a free trad ft
Democrat or no senator at all for
Pennsylvania than a failure to assist
Roosevelt In settling an old score.
If these are the vaunted "principles
»f Progresslvlsm" we see nothing in
them to substantiate the party's ex
travagant claims to nobilities of pur
pose such as no other political party
has ever attained or can ever hope to
Nor are we particularly Impressed
try the lieutenant Colonel Roosevelt
has chosen to help him in this fight.
Mr. Beveridge Is a prophet without
honor in his own country. He has re
peatedly been discredited in his native
State of Indinna. He has been de
feated for United States senator and
defeated for Governor. Even the 1012
flood tide of progresslvlsm could not
carry him Into office with the consent
We feel that Mr. Beveridge is not
quite the man to tell us what we
ought to do for Pennsylvania and that
Mr. Roosevelt himself knows consid
erably less about our industrial needs
than is compatible with the role of an
Imported State leader.
Pennsylvania Is rapidly arriving at
the point where she resents being
made use of as a political athletic field
by persons who wish to make demon
strations of their strength.
IT Is creditable to the spirit of the
American business man that he Is
doing his best to overcome and rise
above conditions which have made
hie efforts unusually difficult during
the last few months. With all the
Democratic experimenting and baiting
of the corporations, there is still a dis
tinct tone of optimism in the business
It Is unreasonable, however, for the
Democratic ncwspapersaml the spokes
men of the Wilson administration to
assume that the manufacturers of this
country are deliberately doing what

i they can to weaken the business struc
ture. On the contrary, these are striv
ing in every possible and legitimate
way to forge ahead in every sphere of
usefulness and activity In spite of the
drawbacks and the uncertainty grow
ing out of the experimental policies
and panaceas of the administration
now in control at Washington.
Political malcontents of all parties
are likewise beginning to realize that
the masses of the voters are no longer
to be deceived by specious promises
which were never meant to be fulfilled.
In the approaching elections, the
voter Is likely to be governed by what
has transpired during the last year or
two rather than by high-sounding
pledges of a reduction in the cost of
living, larger pay envelopes and other
attractive campaign phrases.
In abort, the average man is doing
a lot of thinking and the Individual
who hopes to achieve his political am
bitions by destroying confidence and
by a pretense of interest In the wel
fare of the masses will discover in the
very near future that the thinker has
at last become wise to the situation.
A society has been formed In New
York to advise the matrimonially In
clined. About the only advice a young
man or woman In that state of mind
will accept is: "Hurry out and get a
Boston woman by name of Blank I*
seeking divorce. And yet they ask,
"what's In a name."
THE general satisfaction that has
followed Mr. Morgan's an
nouncement of voluntary retire
ment from many of the Inter
locking directorates In which his firm
was the dominent factor was to have
been expected In view of the terrific
popular opposition which has been
aroused to trusts and combinations of
Several very large financiers have
already followed the example of Mor
gan & Co. and there can be no doubt
that the "big interests" are making up
their minds to "get out from under."
If this is to be done, It is clearly muoh
better that It should be done volun
tarily than as a result of legal battles.
But Is it not strange that there has
been no speculation as to the probable
results of these withdrawals upon the
businesses and enterprises affected?
It Is to be presumed that the Mor
gan representation in boardß .of direc
tors was sought because the name and
fame and wealth of Morgan lent
strength. Anything in which J. Pler
pont Morgan was personally interested
was guaranteed against failure In the
opinion of financial men. The mere
fact that Morgan was on the board of
directors was enough to make a suc
cess out of a failure, to ward off ruin,
to restore credit and to put an enter
prise squarely on Its feet.
What is to be the result of the
sudden withdrawal of Morgan's sup
port and prestige from so many in
stitutions which have, for a long
period of time, depended upon those
influences? It cannot be denied that
Mr. Morgan is taking something out
of them. What Is being put into them
to take its place?
We are not at all sure that the mad
rush to "unscramble" business; to
separate powerful combinations Into
their original units and to restore |
primitive conditions of business, Is a
thing to rejoice over. We cannot for- i
get that the great things which have
been done for America, financially and
industrially, have been done by the
great leaders and combinations of
leaders. These achievements have
been so notable that the whole tend
ency In Europe Is to adopt our plan
and to perfect the very systems which
we are proceeding so blithely to tear
Have we any positive assurance that
the "unscrambling" process is wise
and practical, or are we merely glut
ting a prejudice?

GENEROSITY OF MB. FORD
MUCH and well deserved praise
has come to Henry Ford, head
of the Ford Motor Car Com
pany, of Detroit, as the result
of his determination to share
$10,000,000 a year profits with his
wage-earners and to establish a mini
mum wage of $5 a day In his plant for
even the "commonest laborer who
sweeps the floors."
Any man who deliberately relin
quishes so enormous a sum of money
for the benefit of his employes is do
serving of unstinted commendation.
Yet. it would be very unfortunate—
and probably no one would regret It
more than Mr. Ford—if the public
were to jump at the conclusion that
all employers are in a position to do
what Mr. Ford has done.
The Ford Motor Car Company is
not comparable with the average busi
ness establishment. It has been an
industrial gold mine—a rare "find"
such as the business annals of the
country do not record once In a gen
eration. Starting almost on a shoe
string, its trade grew until the profits
reached the sum of $25,000,000 a year,
or approximately 500 per cent, on the
Clearly, the Ford Company Is In a
position to make concessions to its
employes which would be Impossible
with the firm that has to content itself
with a 5 or 10 per cent, dividend.
The news dispatches state that on
the day following Mr. Ford's an
nouncement his factory was besieged
by men, women and children In such
numbers that It was necessary to call
out tho police. They rushed to the
Ford shops Just as they rushed to
California in '49 and to the Klondike
in later years.
This showed very conclusively that
a $5 wage for the "commonest laborer
who swoeps the floor" Is not the mar
ket price for labor and that the great
majority of employers cannot hope to
compete with Mr. Ford on thin basis.

More newspapermen of Pennsylva
nia will gather here on the t6nth of
next month when the three big asso
ciations of the journalists of the State
""111 meet than have assembled In
the State Capital in a long time. The
State Editorial Association, which has
taken on a new lease of life and has
• 'liances of becoming a greater factor
than ever In State affairs, the Asso
ciated Dallies and the Association of
Weekly Newspapers are organizations
with which almost eyery newspaper
published in the State and many of the
editors and reporters are members,
i hey will gather here for the first time
and it is expected that the influence
of the meetings will be fijlt throughout
the State. The State Edlturla! Asso
ciation became for a while more of an
association of men identified with the
ÜB ' nus ß departments of newspapers
rather than with the editorial and
news ends, and it did little more than
meet and take trips for a while. In re
cent years it lias made Its annual
meetings opportunities for newspaper
makers to hear the big men of the
profession and for the promotion of
good feeling. The other two associa
tions are youngsters in the field, but
mighty lusty ones and will be not only
clearinghouses for Ideas, but will serve
to unite the newspapermen of the State
for their common interests. Everyone
can remember how the lack of organ
ization among newspaper people was

that emergency that caused the news
papermen to awake to their condition.

The new Income tax is leading to

one of the banks received a form from
a client who had signed it in order to
secure the exemption. The blank
reads: "I do solemnly declare that I,

resident of the United States." This
blank was filled out by a lady who
wrote: "I do solemnly declare that I,
• am a disfranchised
citizens, etc." There are suspicions
that she believes in suffragist princi
Some playful youngsters experi
mented with the outside dumb-waiter
of an uptown apartment house the
other day in a way that was productive
of almost a mild* little panic among
the upper-floor tenants, —and unques
tionably some heart-to-heart confer
ences between wayward youths and
outraged parents a little later. The
dumb-waiter ordinarily is used for
hoisting ashes, ice, etc., and it is so
constructed that anybody from the
ground outside may load it and send It
speedily to the top by merely signaling
for those higher up to hoist away.
Several small boys pondered long and
earnestly as to the probable uses the
waiter could be put when, unluckily,
a small dog strolled obligingly by.
What followed Is an easy guess. How
successful the experiment proved was
demonstrated to the deliriously happy
youths below when some feminine
shrieks to the effect that "Mercy!
This isn t ice!" and "That mean gar
bage man just puts any old thing in
our hoist," etc., etc., reached their
ears from above.
Here is a story of wandering that is
worth while. A man at the Capitol
put his coat and overshoes In an office
and went to another part of the build
ing. When he got back the place was
locked. He went out and bought an
umbrella, but In so doing got his feet
wet. He then brought dry stockings
and got on a car. He left the package
on a car. Fortunately he had the
number and he chased two blocks to
catch the car on the return trip. He
sot on, paid another fare, asked for
his bundle and was told by the con
ductor that he had sent it to the office.
He got off the car and walked home.
The manner In which' bankers of
Harrisburg and this section of the
State are standing up for Philadelphia
for a regional reserve bank deserves
to be remembered by Philadelphia peo
ple, because It is the kind of aid that
is worth while in emergency. Almost
everyone connected with banking here
abouts is doing what he can for Phila
delphia, and some strong arguments
are being made.

PALMER AN ARTFUL DODGER
Creasy Leads the Grangers Into

Secretary of Labor William B. Wil
son has put. tho bosses of the Demo

air again by his declaration at Wll
llamsport last night that he Is not a
candidate for governor of Pennsylva
nia and does not desire to become a
candidate and that, furtheo, he is
satisfied in the presidential cabinet.
Wilson was the man picked out by
Congressman Palmer and the other
desperate bosses of the Democratic
machine a3 one who might be accept
able to the Old Guard and the militants
have left the reorganization faction
because of disgust with the arbitrary
conduct of the bosses. Palmer does
not want to be the candidate for gov

have been pressing him
to say whether he will run for gov
ernor or stay in Congress to boss them.
Palmer has been sounding sentiment
which he has not found very favorable
to gubernatorial ambitions and trying
to put someone else to the front. Wil
son has failed him: others are riddled
as soon as suggested and Creasy and
Berry are not considered as just the
right kind to put up. Palmer is now
said to want to run for senator, al
though the Philadelphia Ledger,
which has been the Congressman's
mouthpiece, intimates to-day that the
Stroudsburg man's ambitions fly as
high as the White House itself. Pal
mer may be forced to pull Guthrie
back from Toklo or go' into the grab
bag for some rich Democrat, who has
not been as busy making enemies as
the reorganization bosses.

several ways on Wednesday night and
sent President Wilson his orders about
appointments on the reserve board.
But last, night it got into politics in
tho good old Creasy way. It assailed
the State Highway Department and de
manded information; it named a. com
mittee to probe expenditures of the
State government, the delays in State
reports, the failure to tax property full
value and other things, all of which
would furnish a "food" supply for
Creasy when he goes on the Btuinp.
The committee also demanded the re
pea' of the township road law and
more powers for townships in road
matters, notwithstanding the horrible
examples some districts have given
when they had power. It was a regu

kind and the members packed their
