noon, and these with the candidates and
other spectators filled every chair in the

Mr. S. Fraukle of Millerstown offered a
aeries of resolutions which were read bj
the Secretary; then Mr. Starr of Petrolia
moved that a Committee on Resolutions
be selected and that these resolutions br
referred to them. This was agreed to, and
the Chairman appointed Messrs Galbreatb,
Davidson and Frankle a committee on res
olutions and they retired, but returned
shortly recommending that the resolutions
be adopted as read and this was agreed to.
Mr. Galbreath then spoke for Dr. Leigb
ner by request, hoping that the Republi
cans of this county would make a good
showing at the next election, Feb. 20tb, as
it was an unusually •roportant one for a
Spring election; saying that the executive
committees of last Fall should continue on
duty for it, and endeavor to get out the
J. M. McCollough of Fairview inquired if
tew "watchers" were needed for this elec
ion, and was informed that they are, as
the certificates for the election of last Fall
expired with it.
Mr. J, N. Moore then moved that the
Committeemen present indicate anj
changes wanted or vacancies to be filled
as "watchers" so that the County Chair
man could hand a complete list to the
County Commissioners for the issuing ol
new certificates and this was agreed to,
and acted upon.
Mr. Kiskaddon then moved that Mr.
Galbreath be requested to explain the or
ganization of the Lincoln League to the
Committee. This was agreed to and Mr.
Galbreath said that the League was not_ a
local organization, that it takes in the
whole county, that any Republican in the
county can join it on his own terms, that
tbe organization is founded on Republican
principles; has already done good work in
Mr. Starr of Petrolia asked if candidates
could be appointed as watchers; and the
general sense of the convention was that
they could, that there was nothing in the
law to prevent it, and that any qualified
elector could be a watcher. It was also
stated that any member of the election
board could help fill out a ticket if request
ed to do so,
Charley Kerr, the irrepressible patriot of
Cherry twp., put in an appearance and
made several speeches on the Wilson bill,
and the Committee adjourned.
Tbe resolutions heartily endorse our
fellow citiaen Dr. Showalter for Secretary
of Internal Affairs, and read as follows.
Ist. That the present protracted and
continuous depression in the various de
partments of industry, demonstrates the
fact that tbe Republican position as inaiu
tained before tbe peoplo during tho late
national canvass, was sound and patriotic,
tbe honor and industrial interests of tbe
country can only be maintained by an
abandoment of tbe re-actionary methods of
tbe present Administration, and its return
to the safe methods of the pai-t.
2nd. That nothing short ot an emphatic
rebuke at the ballot box can induce the
party in power to desist from the further
prosecution of tho uup»triotic war—it is
now waging against tbo tariff system,
through whose fostering influence our
farmers, manufacturers, and our wage
workers have prospered these many years.
3rd. That in the candidacy of Hon.
Galusha A. Grow the people of this State
have a grand opportunity of expressing
their condemnation of the vicious princi
ples ot the Wilson Hill now before the
United States Senate lor consideration,
and we nrge upon the people oftbis county,

TUB campaign in Pennsylvania was
opened in Philadelphia,last Saturday night
by a mass meeting in the Winter Circus
building attended by at least five thousand
John Dalrell wa3 tho principal speaker.
He predicted a majority for Grow of 200.-
000, reviewed the lndu3trial situation; and
when asked about the income tax amend
ment to the Wilson bill said:
•There are two points to be made, first,
if you are going to raise revenue by direct
taxation you ought to impose the tax on
all the people alike and not on a few.
[Cheers ] Another thing, the poor man
who thinks because he doesn't make $4.-
000 a year he will not have to pay the in
come tax is fooling himself. Suppose I
were to make $4,500 a year out of my
property, I make my tenants pay the tax
on the SSOO. Dojou suppose the Astors
are going to pay the income tax? No.
The Astors" tenants will pay the income
"Now, onr Democratic friends say the
Wilson bill is to reduce taxation in the in
terest of tbe poor man. Well, let's see.
It strikes off *3,000,000 on Havana cigar.*;
doesn't that help man? [Laugh
ter.] Then it strikes off over $1,200,000 on
French wines. Don't you think the work
iegmen will be drinking champagne three
times a dayf [Laughter.] It also strikes
off over three millions on laces and em
broideries to help the poor men, so you see
there is no reason why any man should not
wear ruffles on his shirt. Then $3,000,-
000 is taken off on Silks and silk plushes
for the poor man. Don't you think the
workingmen will soon be going to work in
silk jackets and plush trowsers? [Laugh
ter ] Next $1,200,000 is taken off of kid
gloves and jewelry and *IOO,OOO stricken
off on perfumery. All for the benefit of
the poor man. Now, if there is a Demo
crat in the audience I wish he would tell
oie hftw this bill is going to help the
workingman. I have footed up these vari
ons items with Rome others, and I find
the aggregate $14,114,319 that has been
stricken off in the interest of tbe poor man
But that ia not all; they have thrown off
$22,000,000 on the import duties of wool
ens, one-half of which, or $11,000,000, was
on the finer woolens which are worn al
most exclusively by the rich. In other
words, they have contributed $11,000,000
to the rich for the benefit of tbe poor man.

The galleries of the Hou«e were crowded
last Thursday, five minutes after the doors
opened, to hear the closing debate oa the
Wilson bill. It was estimated that ten
thousand people crowded into the galleries
and the crush was so great that several
persons were hart.
Ex-Speaker Reed received an ovation
when he entered the House, and during
the afternoon he made the speech ol his
life—a truly great effort, worthy of the
time, tie occasion and hi? high reputation.
But ail attempts to soften the destruc
tive features of the bill failed, and at <> p.
m. amid the wildest cheering of tho free
traders and their followers and from
the workiisgmen who filled the g^ilierie?,
while Tom Johnson, Harter and thu other
followers ol the Cobden club hugged them
selves with joy, the Wilson free trade bill,
the measure that will reduce the wages of
the American workingmen to a level with
those on the other side of the ocean if it
should become a law, was passed by a vote
of 204 Democrats and Populists in the ai
firmaiive to 140 Republicans, Democrats
and one Populist in the negative.
The result was not unexpected. The
partv whip and presidential patronage
forced many Democrats into line against
thi ir honest judgment and the men on the
Democratic side who were loudest in their
denunciation of the measure were among
the first to sell their principles and be
come cuckoos to ti.e great patronage dis
pensers. Mr. Beltzhoover of Pennsylva
nia and the ex Tammany chief, Burke
Cockran of New York, are fit specimens of
At no time in the last two »eeks has the
bill been in danger, and the final vote con
firms tbe prediction that less than twenty
Democrats would have the courage of their
convictions. The nearest the protesting
Democrats came to scoring a victor} was
the vote on the income tax. Then they
were able to muster 46 votes. The Re
publicans did not, as a rule, vote on this
proposition, but even with their solid vote
it would have been adopted by a majority
of at least 20.
An inspection of the final vote shows
some interesting features. Of the 126 Re
publicans in the House. 122 were present
and voted nay. The absentees were Milli
kin of Maine, Houk of Tennessee, Hop
kins of Pennsylvania and Sweet ol Idaho.
Tho first two were detained at home by
illness and had been paired with sick Dem
ocrats. Mr Sipeof Pennsylvania and Mr.
Brattan of Maryland. Mr. Hopkins was
present for a while "with his physician in
attendance, but could not stand the strain
and was removed to his home in a car
riage before the final vote. Mr. Sweet
was also taken ill and removed to his res
idence. The remaining eighteen negaiive
votes were cast by seventeen Democrats
and one Populist, the latter being Mr.
Newlands of Nevada.
The Democrats who dared to vote their
convictions and in favor of protection were
as follows: Sibley of Poi nsylvania. Bart
lett Campbell, Covert, Cummings, Haines,
flendrix, Schermerhorn and Sickles of
Xew York, Cadmus of New Jersey, Sperry
of Connecticut, Davey, Meyer, Price and
Robertson of Louisiana, Geary of Calitor
nia and Page of Rhode Island.
As the vote was being taken absolute
stillness prevailed There had been so
mauv rumors afloat about tbe position of
certain Democrats on the fiu.il vote that
each side was anxious to hear the responses.
The ert-dit of being the first Democrat to
go on record aeainst the bill fell to Mr.
Harriett of New York, and as his nay rang
out he was applauded vigorously by the
Republicans and the occupants of the
Shortly afterward, Mr. Beltzhoover of
Pennsylvania, who had denounced the
measure in two vicious speeches and pro
claimed himself a Randal Democrat, voted
aye and the free traders went wild with
enthusiam, while the galleries hissed.
Bhtuchard and Boatner of Louisiana also
voted aye, and were applauded. Cadmus
of New Jersey came next, and as he voted
uay the hall rang with applause. Less
than a week ago the six Now Jersey Dem
ocrats caucused and decided to vote auainst
the bill if the income tux were added. To
day Mr. Cadmus was the only one to so
vote, and the applause was a tribute to
his courage. Campbell of New York fol-
lowed him in the same line, and then
'■Cockran" wan called. All eyes were turn
ed upon the ex-Tamraanyite,who has been
bellowing against the ineomo tax for a
month or more. He hesitated a moment
and then meekly voted aye, to the great
delight of the free-traders who applauded
hiiu; as they also did Coombs of New York
and Cornish of New Jersey, who followed
him into the patronage camp.
Covert of New York was applauded
when he voted nay, and then came «n
ovation. Cnmmings of New York is a
former printer and a friend of tho working
men, of course. When, in a load voice, he
voted nay, the workingmen in the galleries
applauded him to the echo and could hardly
Sibley of Pennsylvania, the only one of
the ten Democrats of that state to vote to
protect her industries and those of the
whole country, received an ovation similar
to that given Cummings, and immediately
afterward the veteran Gen. Sickles voted
n»y amid loud applause. Sperry of Con
necticut, who was the first Democrat to
announce his intention to fight the bill to
the last extremity and who kept his pledge
to the end, al«> was roudly applauded
when his "nay" rang out. Hines of Penn
sylvania, who was elected to congress by
the laboring men ol hirf district, came
in for freee-trade applause as he voted
to reduce their wages by passing the Wil

pandemonium ensued on the Democratic
side. A notable feature of the vote was

House all but nine were present and

HON. THOMAS W. PHILLIPS,
In the House of Representatives.
Friday. Jan nary 20, 1894.
(The llonse being in the Committee of the
Whole nn the State of the Union, and hav
ing under consideration the bill [H. R
-4&C4] to reduce taxation, to provide rev
enue for the Government, and for other
Mr. PHILLIPS said:
Mr CHAIBMAS: * I HAVE retrained from
speaking heretofore on this bill or its
amendments, but now it seems to me t..a.
tho discussion has progressed far enough to
convince this body and this nation that the
proposed tariff changes should not be en
acted into a law; and, although no further
argument is necessary to show that the
Wilson bill has already been weighed in
the balanc- and found wanting, I desire to
enter my protests against it on both moral
and economic grounds.
Cut before entering into the discussion
of the question, I wish to call attention to
the fact that the Democratic party claims
that protection is unconstitutional. It is
asserted in the Democratic platform, and
reaffirmed in the majority report of the
Ways and Means Committee, that a tariff
for protection is unconstitutional; and this,
too, in face of the fact th»t there has been
protection in different periods from the
foundation of the Government to the pres
ent time. The Supreme Court has been
open for more than a hundred years, and
no one has ever brought a suit on account
of the payment of the duty on the gronnd
that it was unconstitutional. Why does
not some Democrat appeal at once to the
Supreme Court and settle this question for
all time if he believes this assertion?
The gentleman from Xew 1 ork [Mr.
Cockran] has tried to place free trade upon
high moral grounds. Ho seems to have
great affection for humanity as a whole,
without distinction of nation. This is
shown by the number of times that the ex
pressions "human race," "all mankind,
"universal history,*' etc., were used in his
speeches on this question. lam glad that
this gentleman and others have inv ted
discussion on this question upon moral
grounds. If a protective tarifl can not fie
defended from this standpoint, I am wil
ling to yield the question and repudiate the
the principle [Applause.]
Protection is right because it is in strict
accord with the first law of nature —the
law of self defense. And if the principle
of self protection is right it will as surely
survive this attack as freedom survived and
slavery went down in the abyss of war.
The law of seif defence is universal; it pre
vades all animated nature fr im the smallest
insect up through all animal life to man. All
defend their rights, their property, their
homes, against all invaders of their own
kind or any other kind. The sluggard or
the Democrat need only go to the ant or
tho bee to learn this rudimentary lesson,
which is confirmed by reason and revela
tion, and shown most clearly in God's
dealings with the human race We are
not compelled to treat others better than
ourselves; and if we do, it is an act of mer
cy or benevolence, "jtune of the meanest
men that I have ever known were those
that wore mean to themselves It is true
"we should do unto others as we would
have others do unto us," but it must be
borne in mind that no one wiil voluntarily
trade with another to his own disadvantage.
There is no principle in law or morals that
will cumpell bim to do this.
Who made Europe a ruler or a judge
over us, and gave it a right to dictate to us
terms of tradeT Our nation is the party ol
the first part, and has both the legal and
moral right to say on what terms it will
trade with other nations. It is evident
that we can not compete with Europe
while admitting their products of cheaper
labor free of duty. The American laborer
is better paid, better fed, better clothed,
better housed, and has more advantages
lor his family than the laborers of any
other na'ion on earth. [Applause.] We
hav« established and are trying to main
tain a better industrial system and greater
equality of rights and opportunities than
have yet existed. This cau not be done it
our labor be brought to the level of foreign
countries, which would be the result of
free trade. Nor are we working against
the interests of laboring men in foreign
Hiuutries, for their condition will improve
in the future as it has in tfce past through
the influences of otir institutions and ex
ample Alter our great achievements are
wo to be compelled by the Democratic
party to surrender our justly won advan
tages, to abandon our infant industries,
aud to renounce our aspirations for the ad
vancement of civilization and to promote
the good of the race* 11 this nation were
to throw its ports open to the products of
underpaid labor of other countries and to
unrestricted immigration from Europe and
Asii, our whole industrial system would be
overthrown, as was the ancient civilization
by the northern hordts who plunged the
world into a thousand years of darkness
aud from which the Democratic party does
not seem to have recovered.
A man's house is his castle, anu this
country is our cast I While recognizing
the brotherhood of man and the kinship of
the race, yet the State or the nation is as
jast a distinction as the family, and he
"who does not provide for his own house
hold has denied the faith."
That the principle of protection is right
may be shown by the Jewish theocracy, a
people governed by God himself. While
it is true that the promise to the founder
of thi nation was that through hiin all
nations ol the earth should be blesred (the
blessing, however, was subsequently
shown to be spiritual,) it is also true that
the Jew ish nation was moro exclusive in
legislative enactments to prevent destruc
tion of its interests and the contamination
ot its subjects by contact with other people
than any other nation, ancient or modern.
If God himself so cared for a nation which
had better laws, civilization, aud religion
than others, should not this nation, which
is so advanced along all these lines, pro
tect its citizens and not reduce its indus
tries and labor to the low level of others?
That this bill is not due to moral con
siderations is illustrated by the reduction
of the duty on tin plate. Before tbe Mc-
Kinley bill, foreigners had a monopoly of
this vast industry, aud importers were sel
ling a poor quantity tor a high price and
would not guarantee the quality. The
McKmley bill invited capital and labor to
build up a new industry in our country, by
placing a duty of 2 2 cents per pound ou
tin plate lor the term of six years Cpou
the plighted laitb or tbe Government,many
citizens entered this new pursuit, expend
ing large suns of money and giving em
ployment to a multitude of men; and now
the quality of domestic tin being made is
not only guaranteed, but is superior to
what we have been getting from abroad
for many years. There is now a tin plate
mill in the city of New Castle, in my dis
trict, which cost some $300,000 and em
ploys several hundred men. lam inform
ed that, wtth the reduction of the duty
Iroin 22t0 1 2 cents per pound, not ouh
this piai t but nil others in the country wiil
be compelled to shut down. Now, if the
prefont duty were permitted to remain,
there would be no reasonable doubt that
long before the contract of the Govern
ment with these people would expire they
would be giving employment to thousands
ot men aud supplying the country with
better and cheaper tin thau we have been
getting from Wales.
Yet, notwithstanding this, the Demo
cratic party now proposes to have this
Government go back on its offer, which is
in the nature of a contract, and violate it*
honor. Such a transaction between nations
would be a cause for war, and between in
dividuals ii w< nd be fraud. This Govern
ment is now about to withdraw its offer
alter it has been accepted anil large sums
ot money invested in good faith. May we
not say to the Democratic party, which is
now the Government, that you had better
stop ut'd consider before you break clown
or eripplo our growing industries.
llerod has been considered infamous bo
cause be slew the Infants of Bethlehem
Tl;e Democratic party is about to follow
tbe example ot llerod anu commit inlanti
ci'lo by killing our intant industries. [Ap
In the second place, the bill should bo
opposed for economic reasons. We have a
much larger acreage ot discovered coal and
iron than the British Isles and the conti
nent of Europe combined, and upon the
Whole our ?Ual and mm deposits are
more acceptable. Why should Europe J.g
tbou-ands ot feet under ground and ship
their product to us 3,000 miles away while
we have mountains of iron ore and millions
ot acres ui coal near the earth * surface*
And why should they melt their rocks to
to make glass to ship to this rock-ribbed
continent crossed with mountain chains?
Xo economic law will permit the people of
one continent to manufacture and ship
their products to another continent which
has a greater supply of tho same materials.
This process involves an absurdity like that
of the old English saving about the fool
ishness of "carrying coals to Sewca-tle. '
Xo philanthropy or economy, no law of
God or nature, wili justify such a waste of
intellectual, mechanical, and physical
This bill is not consistent with the prin
ciples of economy in that it does not cre
ate. but destroys . While it may not
raise sufficient revenue, it will destroy
some of our industries and cripple many
others. Foi example, to put wool on the
free list will destroy a great industry It
has been shown that we can not compete
with the woolgrowers of Australia and
South America without protection. This
is shown by the ruinous prices at which
la.-t year's clip was sold and the great
slaughter ot sheep and the low price of
mu'ton caused bj tin* anticipation of pnt-
ting wool on the free list. There is one
fact, and it seems to me the principal fact,
which has been entirely overlooked by the
a itbors of the bill in this disastrous propo
s.non While the specious argument
about cheap clothing is sounded abroad,
what about clothing in a few years, when
the flocks have disappeared and the shep
herd with his crook ha> gone, and the bark
of the shepherd dog is no longer heard in
the landf When this occurs foreign wool
growers will have a monopoly, and wili
sell us wool and woolen goods on their own
terms, as foieign manufacturers have here
tofore sold us tin. The millions of sheep
destroyed can not again be produced for

This whole question of tariff should be
lifted above party polities and remanded
to a commission composed of impartial
and iompetent men, who are not extrem
ists. and who would have in view the good
of the whole people. [Applause.] It should
be the duty of this commission to investi
gate the tariff schedule and report to each
Congress any changes that they might
deem best for the general welfare; and it
should be understood that violent changes
affecting vested rights would not be made.
Those who make a business of politics
might be opposed to this commission, but
the people are tired of this continuous tar
iff agitation and want rest and security.
For a handled yiars, at periods, the agi
nation of the tariff has caused terrible bus
•ness depressions A century's experience
shoul leach tis a lesson. In the panics
directly due to the tariff changes capital
ists have failed and 1< st their entire for
tunes, and millions of workii'gmen have
been thrown out of employment, and the
widespread ruin, sorrow, and desolation
has been appalling.
It is time to call a halt and cease to car
ry on such deadly and ruinous conflicts
every four years With such a pernicious
policy, what a spectacle we must present
to the nations of Europe, which are not af
flicted with these periodical tarill revo u
nous! But we can not hope for the Demo
cratic party to adopt a wise and conserva
tive policy of this kind and at once relieve
apprehensions. The Democratic party has
power to do this, but I believe it has not
ihe wisdom or disposition. The Demo
cratic party always does the wrong thing
but at the right time to benefit the Repub
lican party. When the Republican party
comes into power, and this the Democratic
party makes as sure as day succeeds night,
it should at once lift this whole question
above party politics and forever end this
tariff war, which has caused such wide
spread disaster, wreck, and ruin.
Mr Chairman, in regard to the placing
of petroleum on the lree list, which occur
red yesterday, I have this to say; that,
when the Ways and Means Committee de
cided to put petroleum on the lree list,
members of Congress who represent dis
tricts in which petroleum is produced and
other members who have a knowledge of
the business were flooded with letters, tel
egrams, and peiitions protesting against
On account of this demonstration the
committee restored the tarifl as against
any nation which had a tariff on American
oil. But now, Mr. Chairman, it seems that
a greater pressure than the popular will
has been brought to bear on the Democrat
ic majority ol this committee, lor they
have reversed their decision and again
placed petroleum on the free list. There
has recently been lormed in New \ ork a
company to import oil from Peru and it is
presumed that some of the committee have
oeeh lititeuing to the persuasive arguments
of this company.
When the amendment placing oil on the
free list came before the House, the chair
man had agreed to hear uie next alier 013
colleague, Mr. Stone. But after Mr. Stone s
live minutes had expired, a member wus
recognized, who made 11 personal speech
on Democracy. Mr. Wilson then moved
that the debate on the petroleum amend
ment close in fire minutes. The motion
prevailed and the five minutes were given
to a Democrat, who never alluded to the
amendment 1 state these facts in order
that the people engaged in the petroleum
industry may know how much time was
given to the discussion of the subject by
Mr. Wilson, who comes from one of the
large oil producing states. Bis fatherly
care has been shown for both the coal and
petroleum industries of his state by giving
them a stone when they asked for brean.
Mr. Chairman, I argue that petroleum
should be protected because it is a now in
dustry, and was made an nrticln of com
mercial value by this nation. While it is
mentioned in Job, one of the oldest books
in the world, and by Herodotus about five
hundred years before the Christian era,and
by Pliny and other early writers, yet it s
commercial value is due to its discovery
and development in this coautry. It we
had not, we should have a patent right 011
it, at least as far as we are concerned. We
have not only discovered it by drilling but
have invented and made all the machinery
used in its development. I submit, there
lore, that while other natio s may use our
discovery and invention for their own ben
efit, they should not bo permitted to use
them for our injury. This they may do if
permitted to shin petroleum to us free of
Auother reason for protecting petrolemu
is the number of industries embraced in its
production, manufacture, and marketing.
Among these may be mentioned iron in
constructing engines, boilers, drilling tools
tai ks, tank cars, casing, tubiug, pipe line,
tin, timber, and coal. And equally nunier
ous and varied are tbe workinginen em
ployed whose wages, ii tbere is not protec
tion, may be greatly reduced.
Mr. Chairman, another reason why the
Government should bo considerate of tins
industry ia because during the war for the
preservation of the Union it levied a tax ol
$1 per barrel and collected large sums ol
money upon oil, although the tax was lo
cal, aud therefore, according to subsequent
decisions of the Supreme Court, unconsti
We ask for protection because other na
tions while profiting by our discovery aud
inventions have develop, d large fields ol
oil and have put a prohibitory tariff ou our
product. After the discovery of the
enormous oil tields in Bussia, due to our
inventions aud skilled workmen, Uussia
has not only put a prohibitory taritl on our
oil but has recentl) shipped some cargoes
to this country. This snows conclusively
that the present low duty on oil should be
increased instead of removed. I had pre
pared an amendment placing a duty ol 25
cents per barrel on crude, and 1 tent a gal
lon on lubricating and rclined oil. But as
before explained had not the opportunity
to offer it.
The Russian oil, wo are informed, can he
produced at the wells lor 8 or 10 cents per
barrel, and notwithstanding its interior
quality may oe shipped in the near luturu
to this country.
Tho Peruvian oil is similar t» ours It
is produced in qoantitieson tbeocean sh< re
and can be cheaply transported to the Pa
cifio coa»t. which is now beginning to
produce oil it-elf. The importation has
already begun, and yet Peru has a prohibi
tory duty "u our oil.
Canada has a duty of 7 cents per gallon
on relined oil, and this is double the cost el
re tilled oil at our works. Canada also pro
duces oil. therefore its duty is a discrimin
ation against us. The petroleum business
has grown to bo a vast industry. Since its
discovery iu J8o!> we have produced abont
000.000,000 barrels of oil. Xotw itbstand
iug the high duty placed upon It by t«r
eigu nations, it has stood lor years third on
our export list, and its exported products
have amounted to more than $ 1,100,000,000.
When we consider the vastness ol the bus
iness, extending over many states, and em
bracing so many pursuits, it is most (sur
prising that it should be placed upon the
Iree list witnont permitting its discussion
before the H >u»e. [Applaaso ou tho Re
