Kiiit**2 Senator Cameron nor Senator
Quay attended the caucus of Republican
Senators at Washington, Wednesday night,
and Cameron has declared against the
Federal Election Bill.
It is said that in the organisation of the
nest State Senate, Mr. E. W. Smiley of
Franklin ■will be promoted from Journal to
Chief Clerk, and the late Reading Clerk to
Journal Clerk. Thi« will make the position
of R«ad»ng Clerk vacant and Mr. James M
Carson of this town is an applicant for it.
Mr. Carson is in every way qualified for
for tfcc position, he is probably as mer
itorious and as deserving as any other ap
plicant. and we wish him success.
A Surprising Failure.
Early, Friday morning of last week, the
firm of Delamater Jk Co. bankers of Mead
ville, Pa., which was composed of G B.
Delamater and his two sons, Thomas A.
and Geo. Wallace, late candidate for Gov
ernor, entered judgments against them
selves and in favor of family creditors to
the amount of over one-bandred thousand
dollars, and then filed an assignment to
two citiserj - of the town.
The total liabilities of the bank, which
include $160,000 of the State's money, on
deposit there; $50,000 of the money of
Crawford county; *7,000 of the connty Sher
iff's money and the general deposits are
estimated all the way from half a million
to eight-hundred thousand, and the assets
at about half that amount, and subject to
tho "customary great shrinkage."
An attorney of the.town who has a num
ber of claims against the bank for collec
tion is quoted as follows:
"Taking into consideration the fact that
the bank owes #IOO,OOO to the State and
over <50,000 to the connty, knowing the
amonnt of certificates of deposit in my
h Mids for collection and claims in the
hands of other attorneys, also the fact that
$40,000 to $45,000 of discounted notes in
tho bank have been turned over to the
M ercbaata' Kational Bank to secure mon
ey borrowed, I think the liabilities can
not be less tbsn $500,000. Also, knowing
the tact thst money was borrowed by the
bank on Thursday, to pay checks present
ed that day, and knowing that 430,000 to
960,000 was borrowed in Philadelphia on
Thursday last, 1 feel justified in saying the
assets of the bank are little or nothing."
The immediate cause of the failure, is
snppoeed to bare l»een heavy campaign ex
penses, among which is a reported loan ol
120,000 to Qoay; and.to G. W's unfortunate
business connection with a man named
McParlane of Philadelphia, President of a
fraudulent insurance company, by whom
s reported to hare been compelled to
pay tOO,OOO. during the campaign to pre
vent a scandal.
Notwithstanding the reported causes of
the failure and tbe fact that the filing of
the preferred claims was an imposition upon
the general run of depositors, nothing but
sympathy was at first expressed for Mr.
Delamater's misfortune, but when it be
esme known that be spent a day or two
jreceedlng the failure in Philadelphia, and
while there borrowed large sums of money
aggregating from thirty to fifty thousand
dollars, from his personal friends, and
reached home Friday morning, Jnst in time
to sign.tbe assignment papers, and did not
return the borrowed money, sympathy
turned to contempt; and unless he does re
torn this borrowed money, he must be
condemned M* common and most un
grateful scoundrel.
What a "vindication" this whole busi
ness—Delamater's nomination, defeat and
feilore bas been to the man who forced bis
nomination upon the Republican party of
the State—M. S. Quay—from tbe aseanlte
made upon his private and public life; and
what a lesson it is to,as as to the evils of
personal or machine politics. Let as take
the lesson to heart*and profit by it.
Statu Treasurer, Boyer is entering
Delamater <fe Co's l-ond in every connty
in the state in which tbe firm was known
to hare any Interests, in the hope of saving
part of that 9100,000, but tbe general
opinion seems to be that he will lose
it all.

A Change Needed.
(Continuedfrom last tecek.)
Having then considered the defect in the
National Constitution, that made the evil
possible, and given a brief account et the
poetical career of the man who originated
and perfected this system of politics for
Pennsylvania, let us inquire into its
What are the elements of the power of
the "machine" over menf
Money, position and promise of position.
Simon Cameron accumulated wealth by
speculation, and was at least suspected,
particularly in the Senatorial election ol
1857, when the three Democrats voted for
him, of using some of it to advance his
political interests, and on the other hand,
when Congress passed a vote of censure
• upon him, it most have had reasons for be
lieving that he himself was making money
out of the Army contracts.
I And coming down to recent events; a
few weeks before tho late election it was
heralded all over this State that Senator
Don Cameron had become dissatisfied with
the Quay and Andrews management of the
campaign, so far as the Legislature wae
concerned, and that he had placed SIOO,OOO
in Ex-Chairman Cooper's hands for special
use in doubtful legislative districts; and
taking it for granted that this statement
was true; What did it mean?
Bribery >nd nothing but bribery; the
very thing that met with our determined
opposition in this Congressional district
this Fall, and cost as a Congressman.
That action or alleged action on the part
of Senator Cameron was an insult to every
honest Republican in the State, and was or
ought to have been particularly offensive
to every Republican candidate for the
Legislature; for it meaut that he was buy
ing bis re-election by buying their elec
Senator Cameron has yet to deny this
statement publicly and until he does so no
honorable man can veto for his re-election.
The second and by far tbe greater ele
ment of power in "machine" politics is
patronage, and let us see what the Federal
patronage in this State amounts to.
First, there are one hundred and ninety
three Presidential postoffices in this State,
that is, offices whose incumbents are ap
pointed by tbe President and confirmed by
the Senate, and each of these offices has
employees, ranging from ten in a town of
the size of Butler to about two thousand
in Philadelphia, the largest town; and then
there are some four thousand smaller post
Second, the several districts of the In
ternal Revenue service in the State, and
the appointments under it; and tbe
Marshals and District Attorneys, and other
officers connected with the Federal
Judiciary in tbe State.
And besides the Federal patronage,there
are the numerous positions to be filled
about the State Capitol building and De
partment buildings, and if you add them
all up you will find that there is quite an
army of them, and they all, for years, bare
been controlled by the "machine" in this
We do not wish to be understood; as in
sinuating that a single Republican office
holder in this State would violate his con
science for the purpose of retaining his
office, but there is not an appointment in
tbe gift of tbose in power in tbe State but
bas its influence, and this influence
bas, in this State, since tbe days of Simon
Cameron, been used to dictate State
nominations and control, as far as ponsible,
tbose of tbe counties and districts, par
ticularly as to Representative offices, and
it has also been used to defeat parly nomi
nees in county and district who would not
submit to the dictation of tbe bosses, when
such dictation was contrary to their idea*
of right and wrong, and contrary to the
best interests of the public.
Your manhood or your head bas always
been tbe rule of tbe "machine" in this
Another great evil of "machine" rule in
the Republican party of this State has
been tbe keeping out of high office of tbe
best men who offered their services.
We have referred lo tbe defeat of Thad
deus Bterens, in caucus, by Simon Cam
eron, and there are other instances.
William D. Kelly, "the father of tbe
House" at Washington, and one of tbe best
advocates of Protection in tbe country,
wished a seat In the Senate but the Cam
erons said No.
Galusha A. Grow, ex-speaker of the
House at Washington, and one of tbe best
financiers in the country, triod to gain a
seat in the Senate time and again, and
always met the opposition of tbe Camerons
and ibelr "machine."
A man like Don Cameron would not
want a statesman from this State sitting
alongside him in tbe Senate, for in that
case be (Cameron) would be a still more
insignificant member of that body than he
is now.
The last time Mr. Grow triod for tbe
Senate, Don. had selected Harry Oliver, a
Pittsburg millionaire, tor the place, some
of the members of tbe Legislature, iuclud
ing one from tbis county, objected to both
the man and tbe dictation, and defeated
him, and a compromise was made on an
other man.
Our member came home, bis course was
approved of by the majority Ot his con
stituents aud he was renominated, but
when election day came around he was de
feated by tbe secret society within the
party, and a Democrat, an old tool of the
Camerons, was elected in his stood.
In regard to Presidential nomination*,
also, tho Republicans of this State have
beer imposed upon.
James G. Blaine, a native of tbis State,
and the foremost statesman of the country,
has been onr choice for years, and yet Don
Cameron, at the head of the Pennsylvania
delegation, and with the aid of the unit
ruin, straw candidates and premature
State conventions, not only prevented us
from aiding in bis nomination, but used the
delegation against him in two National
W hen our people were given a chance to
vote for Blaine they gave hi>n eighty thou
sand majority,but yet the State iu con Ten
linn was arrayed agaiust him, and
if be had remained in tbis State and
had lived in a conferee district his political
head would have been in tbe machine's
waste basket long ago. He never could
have become a National character. It was
well for him that he emigrated.
If Don Cameron and James G. Blaine
were running before tbo Republicans o'
Pennsylvania to-day for tbe office of U. S"
Senator, who wo-ild secure Itf Tbo ques
tion almost answers itself. But the people
do not elect Senators direct, and Don
with the aid of tls secret society, expects
to pull through.
Cameron's term expires next March, and
his successor Is to be elected by the legis
lature that meets next month. He has
held tbe office for fourteen years, and if ho
has any qualifications for the office what
ever, he has yet to make the fact apparent.
On tbe contrary he seems to value the
position more lor tbe social prestigo it
gives himself and family in tbe society of
tbo National capital than for any other
consideration. We bear more of bis aristo
cratic life, and of bis hobnobbing with an
ex Rebel general, than of any other of his
He even seems to be too lazy or incom
petent to run tbe machine bo inherited
himself; Quay and Mackey ran It tot him
for a while; then Mackey died and Quay
ran it himself, and ran himself into tbe
Senate aud into the Chairmanship of the
National Committee, and finally Into tbe
ground. At least It bioks that way Just
Cameron is one of the many millionaires
now in the Senate of the United States
and though some of these millionaires may
be good business men so far as their own
affairs are concerned, in the Senate Cham
ber they are nonentities. "and on all great
measure* they forced to follow
the leaders like- a flock of sheep.
These men have brought the Senate into
disrepute with the Nation, and they have
injured the party. Take the McKinley bill,
for instance, of the merits of which there
was a difference of opinion among the
leaders. In that case these millionaires
sat dumb and witless in their seats, and
the bill was haggled over for months, and
finally passed on the eve of the election
which gave its enemies an opportunity to
misrepresent it, and it was misrepresented,
and the party lest several States at the
late election by this misrepresentation.
With the right kind of men in the Senate
that bill would have been disposed of
within a reasonable time, and the party
would have been saved part ot its late hu
| If there is any good reason why the peo
ple ol Pennsylvania, through their Repre
sentatives at Uarrisburg, shoull continue
J. Donald Cameron in the United States
Senate, it should be made known; if it is
to continue to be a mere matter of money
and patronage, the office should go to the
Philadelphia millionaire, who is reported
to be willing to give a round million for it,
but if the Republican party is to deserve
and hold the continued support of the
people o! the State we think it high time
that we were sending a man to the U. S.
Senate who has shown some indication of
having the capacity and knowledge neces
sary for the position, a man in touch with
the people, and one who will really and
truly represent or endeavor to represent us
I It is impossible fur a man of little or no
acquaintance over the State to suggest a
| nauie, xnd in fact men of ability and in
tegrity have betn so kept down in this
State by the "machine" that there are no
men of pre eminent ability and stamina
now known to the public, but a change can
be made and ehoold be made, and when
it becomes known that the two prettiefj,
roses in the gift of the people of the State
can be fairly and honorably be won by
merit, there are those who will qualify
themselves lor wearing them.
With the present membership of the
Legislature, twenty-six Republicans will
have to stand together in Ibeir determina
tion to bring about this imperatively neces
sary change. We hope that a majority of
the Republican members will see the best
interests of the party, the State and the
Nation and do no, and that they will refuse
to vote for the re-election of J. Donald
Cameron, or any other millionaire, under
any consideration; and will vote only for
a man of merit and integrity, a man of the
people, and one who will pledge himself
to use his best endeavors to secure an
Amendment to the National Constitution,
placing the election of United States Sena
tors and ail other important Federal officers
where they belong—in the hands of the
people and subject to their direct vote.
The Caucu ..
ME. EMTOH: —WE notice much is being
said at present as to the election by the
coming Legislature of the United States
Senator to represent Pennsylvania in place
of Don Cameron. Wo notice also that
caucus is sometimes spoken of as the
meant by which to determine the Repub
lican choice. This caucus idea is so much
at variance with the spirit and letter of the
law on the subject of choosing United
States Senators that we beg leave to call
attention to the-law.
By the Act ol Assembly of January 11,
lho7, it in directed that, "On the 3d Tues
day of January, if the Legislature shall
have been organized, each House shall
openly, by a rira rod vote of each mem
her present, name one person for Senator
in Congress from this State"—
Then, "at 12 o'clock of the day following
the members of the two Houses shall con
vene In joint assembly, and if the same
person shall have received a majority in
•-acb House, sueb person shall be declared
duly elected Sanutor; but if tho same per
son shall not have received a majority in
each ll'ium, the joint assembly shall then
prweed to choose, by a rira r ocr vote of
each member present, and the person hav
ing a majority of all the votos shall be de
clared dulj elected; and in case no person
shall receive such majority on the first day
tho said joint assembly shall meet each
succeeding day until a Senator shall be
liy the above it w ill be seen that it is a
legislative duty and should be done openly
in the legislature. No member can go into
a caucus and thus forego, or smother or
barter away the choice of his constituents
for a Senator, or bis own choice. Caucus
may do in some minor tilings, but not in
this high and important duty of electing u
United State* Senator. Ex.
