THB address of the Pennsylvania Repub
lican Association comes in good time.
Pennsylvania is at present unrepresented
in the United States' Senate.
The state is entitled to two seats in the
Senate Chamber, and commissions are
now held for them by two citixena of the
State, named J. Donald Cameron and
- Matthew S. Quay, but they are seldom oc
cupied, and when they are occupied they
might as well be empty.
The two individuals named are either
void of oapacity for the duties of their
offices or else are entirely indifferent to
them, and therefore the state is unrepre
sented whether they be occupying their
seats or not.
Numbers of Republicans all over the
state have noticed this and have
, made several unsuccessful efforts to
remedy it. Now they are try
ing it again, and all they ask is the elec
tion of a man oapable of representing the
state on the floor of the Senate, and whose
past record gives some assurance of his
doing so.
AHONQ the names of the leading Repub
licans of Pittsburg who have signed the
address of the Pennsylvania Republican
Association, protesting against the re
election If. S. Quay to the United States
Senate, are the following: Col. William

Republicanism vs. Quayism.
Although there have been no surface in
dications of the fact, there ha» in reality
daring the past three months grown up in
this state a formidable organization, the
object of which is to prevent the re-election
ot Mathew S. Quay to the Tnited States
Senator and to secure the choice of a suc
cessor whose personal character, intellect
ual tnd foreDMC ability, statesmanlike
qualities, and loyality to the principles of
the Republican party, as well as his will
ingness to be the exponent of its voters sent
iments, shall stamp bim as a fitting repre
sentative of the State in the Upper Honse
of Congress.
The first open ovidence of the existence
of the organization is found in the strong
and significant address of its Executive
Committee. This, however, has n<Jt been
launched until, by personal conferences
and extensive correspondence, the senti
ment of many thousands of Republicans in
all parts of the State has been ascertained,
and the nucleus of an active and effective
organization formed in every Republican
county. So carefully and thorougly has
this work been done that there is no doubt
that the organization will achieve its object
and that Mr. Quay, at the expiration of
his present term in the United States
Senate, will be succeeded by an abler and
more loyal Republican. .
The present movement is entirely dis
tinct from that fathered by the Lincoln
Independents, or Republican Reform
League, which defeated Mr. Delamatcr.
It has been organized by Republicans, who
have uniformly supported only Republi
cans for office, and who voted the ful'
State ticket in 1890, although many of
them did so under a mental protest.
It embraces men who have followed Mr.
Quay's leadership as State and National
Chairman, and who have hitherto either
actively or passively given him their sup
port. They are men who have as a rule,
taken no active part in politics, but have
given liberally when applied to, to the
campaign funds of the party. They are
moved by no personal grievances against
Mr. Quay. Nor do they desiro any office
for themselves or other friends. They are
neither chronic kickers, sore heads, disap
pointed office seekers, mugwumps, nor pe
riodical independents. They are of those
who constitute the real strength of the
party, its business, professional and work
ingmen, who love its principles and the
welfare of their State, and who have at
length most reluctantly taken action be
cause it has been slowly forced upon them
that the vital interests of both would be
irretrievably injured unless a halt was
called upon Mr. Quay.
Mr. Quay's attempt to vindicate himself
indirectly by his forcible nomination of Mr.
Delamater, and the insertion of a plank in
the State platform of 1890 eulogizing him
self created in them a feeling of distrust,
and although they supported the ticket,
the overwhelming repudiation of its head,
dne principally to the Quay plank in the
platform, and the subsequent revalations in
regard to Mr. Delamater brought them
to tho point of deciding that Mr. Quay's
leadership was an evil one, Still, they
were unwilling to take actiou against it
His conduct in supporting Mr. Cameron
for re-election, followed by the treachery
of both the Senators on the free election
and silver bills still further stirred the
feeling of dissatisfaction which was aim ost
fanned into a flame by the Donegal con
spiracy. The object of that conspiracy was
to have last year's State Convention ig
nore Mr. Harrison by exceeding its powers
and nominating Mr. Blaine, whoso bitter
and uncompromising enemies the two Sen
ators had always been. It was further
their plan to omit the usual plauk from
the platform demanding a free election
and a fair count, in order to vindicate their
treachery on the election bill.
It was just here that the tide turned and
the conscience and good sense of the party
revolted. The night before the convention
met Mr. Quay apparently held it in the
hollow of his hand, and his chief henchmen
boasted that the full Donegal scheme
would go through the next day "like a
breeze." But there were some
who perceived the danger, and who work
ed nearly all night to avert it, and the re
sult was that when the convention met it
ignored Mr. Quay and his schemes and
made its own platform and ticket, and as
a consequence the latter received an im
mense majority at the polls.
Meanwhile, however Mr. Quay had in
creased the ill-will of many who had here
tofore been his frieuds by his interference
in the Club League presidency contest, and
the blunder of his lieutenants in permit
ting nearly a hundred bona fide clubs,
many of them composed of his friends, to
leave Scranton without having been admit
ted to the convention, although the com
mittee controlled by his friends had been
compelled to recommend their admission.
All these occurrences taught tho men who
had for sometime been distrusting Mr.
Quay's leadership that they must however
reluctant they might be to do so, act them
selves to get rid of it.
At this juncture further evidence ap
peared of Mr. Quay's determination to de
feat Mr. Harrison, and his intention to
control the State's national delegation so
that he could use it simply for trading for
his personal advantage, as ho had so often
done in the past. His pretention of being
in favor of Mr. Blainu was tjo bald to bo
believed, and it was also tho general opin
ion that the latter would not allow his
name to be used, and in that event tho
sentiment of the Republicans of the State
was known to bo overwhelmingly in favor
Mr. Harrison.
Mr. Quay's evident attempt to preveDt
the expression of that sentiment and tbe
means which he was taking to secure that
result, brought mutters to a Crisis. Al
most simultaneous with the promulgation
of his plan to elect the Philadelphia na
tional delegates three months abend of
the time they should have been chosen the
feeling against him crystxlized into act
On the 15th ofDecember there assembled
in an upper room of No. 1510 Chestnut
Street some forty Republicans from Phila
delphia aud various parts of the State who
resolved that an organization should at
OIJCO be formed covering tbe whole State,
tbe object of which shonld be to elect a
majority of the Republican members of
the next Legislature who would under no
circumstances vote for Mr. Quay, and
who would secure the election of some
popular and able Republican as his suc
cessor. A provisional Executive Commit
tee was appointed with instructions lo se
lect a State Committee, composed of a
representative in every county and Sena
torial district and to call a meeting thereof
as soon as possible.
The members of this State committee
assembled orl January 29 at tho perma
nent headquarters of the movement, Rooms
4, 5, and 6, No. 603 Walnut Street, this
city, aud permanent offices and an Execu
tive Committee were chosen, whose names
are appenod to the address. The organiza
tion was named tbe Pennsylvania Repub
lican Association, and as its motto it se
lected the phrase, "Republicanism vs.
Quayism." At the desire of tho country
members of tho Stato Committee the Exe
cutive Committeo was divided into Eastern
and Western sectious, the members of
which were taken from the immediate vi
cinity of Philadelphia and Pittsburg.
Since the meeting the work of organiz
ing tbe State thoroughly has been pukhed
and it met with such great success that
tbe Executivo Committee felt that the
time was ripe to mako the movement pub
lic, as they do this morning in their ad
Pennsylvania Republican Association,
Republicanism vs Quayism.
To thf Republican rulers of Penmylrania
•Believing that the best interests of the
Republican paity demand the retirement of
M. S Quay from the U. S. Senate at the
expiration of his present term, and that he
should be <-ucceded by a loyal Republican,
possessed of the qualities necessary to the
proper fulfilment of the duties of that high
and responsible position, we hereby ap
peal to you for your support in our efforts
to accomplish this result.
"We, and those in whose behalf, and by
whose direction this declaration is made,
have no other purpose in view than the ad
vancement of the true principles of the Re
publican "party and the highest interests
of our commonwealth and country.
"This declaration comes from the Penn
sylvania Republican Association, whose
members have always believed the remedy
for evils of leadership is to be found by
timely and well-directed action within
party lines, such as we propose to pursue
in this instance. But as American citizens
wo can remain no longer silent, and see a
man continue in place and power whose
influence is constantly working to the
detriment of onr party, our State and our
Nation, and we. therefore, are impelled to
make the positive declaration contained in
oar first sentence, and are prepared to
make it effective by devoting our aflorts,
our time, and our means to that end.
"A point has been reached where, unless
prompt action is taken within the Repub
licau party to deprive Mr. Quay of further
capacity for disastrous leadership, the par
ty in this State will utterly fail to achieve
its true mission, and will, sooner or later,
meet with final overthrow. We have no
personal feeling or grievance against Mr.
Quay. Wo regret that his conduct as a
party leader and U. S. Senator has render
ed it impossible for us longer to support
him. Wo do not forget the services which
he has rendered the party, and while giv
ing full credit therefor cannot but feel that
he has not only been amply rewarded by
the bestowal of its abundant official and
pecuniary favors, but that the scale has
been turned against him by the evils and
defeats he has brought upon the party.
"In a spirit of regretfuluess at the neces
sity which compells action, without mal
ice, and with a desire to be fair to ilr.
Quay, but determined to be loyal to the
Republican party, we will briefly outline
our reasons for opposing his re-election to
the U. S. Senate.
•'We oppose him because he has forced
unpopular nominations and platforms,
which have brought defeat to tho party.
"Because he has instigated, or counte
nanced, the defeat of the party's candid
ates to achieve some personal end.
"Because he has repeatedly induced
delegates and legislators to misroprnsent
the wishes of the majority of their con
Because he has aidod in defeating legis
lation to secure a free ballot and a fair
count in the South; to tho enactment of
which the party has been pledged and
which, as its national chairman, he was in
honor bound to have supported.
"Because by reason of his frequent ab
sence froin the Senate, and the diversion
of his time to office getting, he has failed
to do tho work he should have dono in be
half of legislation of vital importance to
tho State of Pennsylvania, or to iuitiate
and secure tho enactment of a single iin
portaut national measure during bis five
years of service at Washington.
"Because he has, both by words and ac
tions, discredited the pledged policj of his
party in behalf of a genuine, efficient and
business like reform of the civil service,
and has compelled office holders to devote
their time and money to political work in
his behalf.
"Because of his attempts to embarrass
the present Round and patriotic national
administration due to the fact that the
federal offices in this State were not placed
entirely at his disposal.
"Because he has repeatedly opposed the
nomination of the Hon. James G. Blaine
*or tho Presidency when tho overwhelming
sentiment of the Republican voters of the
State was favorable to his selection, and
recently has pretended to bo ardently in
favor of him in order that he might secure
national delegates whom he oould dispose
of to his own ac /antage.
"Because, so long as he dared to do so
ho opposed every change of party rules
calculated to increase tho power of the
voters in county, district, State, or Nation.
"Because he has had primaries and con
ventions called long before there was any
necessity for so doing, in order to forestall
a growing public sentiment against him or
his candidates.
"Because ho has insisted that no recog
nition should be accorded to any element
of the party or to any of its leaders who
were not willing to act with or be subs er
vient to bim.
"Because the system which he has up
held has driven many able and honest
men out of the Republican party, or has
discouraged them fron taking active part
in public life.
"Because he has placed men in office or
position so hampered by pledges to him that
they cannot faithfully perform their duties
to tho State or to their party.
"Because we believe the Republican
voters have a right to choose their U. S.
Senators, instead of their being selected
by office holders, without regard to char
acter, ability, or fitness.
"We issue thin address by the authority
of the Pennsylvania Republican AssocisJ
tion, whose Executive Committee we are,
which organization has its representatives
in every Republican county of tho State,
and which was born of tho necessity for
concerted action to oppose the banded
oflicialism which has boon at tho beck and
call of Mr. Quay.
"It is the ptirposo of onr organization to
carry on tho contest strictlv within party
lines, and to secure the election of a major
ity of tho Republican members of the next
Legislature who will unalterably oppose
the re-election of M. fi. Quay t« tho U. S-
Senate, and who will favor tho choice of
any honeßt Republican, as his successor,
whose personal character, intellectual and
forensic ability, statesmanlike qualities
and loyalty to tho Republican party shall
stamp him as a lilting representative oftho
great Keystone State in tbe upper honseof
"To every patriotic Republican of Penn
splvauia, who believes that tho advance
ment of tbe principles of the Republican
party is above and beyond all personal in
terests, aud who is opposed to political
bossism in every form, to all who wish to
see our great Commonwealth of Pennsyl
vania properly represented at Harrisburg,
at Washington, and in our National and
State conventions by the ablest and best of
her Republican voters; to all such, and
especially to tho young men of our party,
in whose hands the future of the Republic
rests, we oxtend a cordial invitation to
join us in this movement, and to notify ns

AT Texarkana, Arkansas, last Saturday,
a mob burned a colored man named Coy
at the slake for assaulting a white woman,
named Jewell. Coy was strapped to a tree
with iron fasteuings, and coal oil was
poured over his entire person in liberal
qualities. There was then a moment's
silence and then a shout went up. It was
"let Mrs. Jewell apply the match; let Mrs.
Jewell set him off." Walking slowly, very
pale, but collected, the woman emerged
from the crowd. Her appearance among
there set the mob fairly wild, and such a
cheer went up as almost shook the ground
on which they were standing. The crowd
fell back at her approach, making a path
way for her. Leaning upon the arm of a
male relative on either side, she walked
unhesitatingly forward to where the negro
stood pinioned, struck a parlor match with
her own band, and with perfect delibera
tion fired the negro's clothes in two places.
In a second the wretch was one mass of
consuming flames, but even in death his
wonderful nerve exhibited ever since his
arrest never forsook him, and while
suffering the tortures of fire he actually
called to the men of the assembly, and in
a clear voice requested of tbem; "Move
back, so the ladies can see." He referred
to the negro women, a largo number of
whom witnessed the execution. Coy made
but little noise pending his horrible death,
except to groan and grunt, and died in
abont twenty minutes after the application
of the torch.
The Coal Combination.
The great combine of the coal carrying
railroads so skilfully engineered by Presi
dent McLeod of the" Reading is to be in

Despite the assurances of those in the deal
that there will be no raise in prices thero
is a feeling that the deal is contrary to
public interest and should not be allowed
to hold.
Our Constitution condemns this deal.
Its language is too plain to be obscured
The Reading and Lehigh Vally were and
are competing lines, and the prohibition is
plain. Tho case of Coxe Bros., ftesh in
the memory of all, only needs to Ije refer
red to in order to demonstrate the condit
ions violated. They fell out with the Le
high Valley and went to law with it. Did
their works standf Were their collieries
idlef No; but an arrangement was made
at once with the Reading, and it did the
work that the Lehigh Valley had before
been doing. Coxe Bros, had two carriers
ready to carry their coal. They broke
witli one and favored the other. It is too
plain for argument that the two lines were
bidding for the same work. If bidders,
then competitors. If competitors, then
their merger or lease is forbidden.
Do your duty, Mr. Attorney-General.
Don't forget the vigorous tight for the peo
ple when the South Penn deal was broken
up. Governor Pattison, you are in the
balance; the people don't want monopolies

In 1858 he was admitted to the Bar of
this county and for some years had a good
legal practice, standing fair in his profes
sion, but some fifteen years ago be became
ill and from that time since had generally
been confined to his room. Being fond of
books and a great student he was not idle
in his room He was familiar with many of
the best writers and was well informed on
many of the sciences. With history he
was quite conversant, particularly with
that ot our early local history, which he
delighted in reading and upon which he
could converse with much interest.
A short time ago paralysis was added to
his other ailments and he was almost help
less until the end caino. 11 is kind heart
and generous nature made and retained
for him many friends, who will join with
Ufcin paying tribute to his memorr.
