$75,000 of that is still in the Republican
treasury. Chairirau Jones, of the Demo

This enormous sum of money was rpent
principally for the printing and distribu

and ior the expenses of campaign speakers.
As much as $<30,000 a week was ypent for

Is a Fight to a Finish.
(Pittsburg Times of Saturday.)
Ward It. 15'H-K of Delaware county a
candidate for Speaker of the next Penti*yl
vania House of Kepresentatives, was ia
Pitts'.-urg yesterday. In an interview with
a Times reporter he said: "I am a candi

but I Will not be in the road ot any of tl.e

'•According to the best information ob
tainable, I think Mr. Boyer and the combi
nation a?ain*t him have about an
number of pledged .apporters, wi thtUhe
balance of power is in the bands of from .5,
to 40 country member*, who are not pl.-dir
ed and will not be pledged until the} reach
Uarrisburc. They will be mora interested
in organizing the House in the best int r
ests of their constituents and the Republi
can party rather than in the interest ol an}
man or factioQ. ,
44 1 have heard that Mr. Boyer and his
friends are endeavoring t > create the im
pression, for the purpose of dividing th-
I country members, that I am in some par
ticular sense a candidate ia the interest of
Mr. VTanamaker's candidacy for the Lnit
ed States Senate, and that Irank \\ dung
Lep.ch is pushing me. This 13 not true.
There is eminent fitness in the move
ment of the Business Men's League of
this city to promote the election of a
thoroughly representative business man
of Philadelphia to the United States Sen
ate. It has been one of the long admit
ted faults of our political system that
business men have not actively partici
pated in political affairs, and especially
in the primary movements which lead to
the most important political results.
It is no disrespect to the other distin
guished men of Pennsylvania who aspire
to a position in the Senate to say that
Mr. Wanamaker embodies the best attri
butes to make an efficient, useful and
honorable career in the Senate, and to
reflect credit alike upon himself and the
great State he would represent in the
hightest legislative tribunal ol the na
tion. He is thoroughly familiar with al!
the great financial, commercial, manu
facturing and industrial interests of the
Commonwealth. He is not only familar
with them in theory, but he has acquired
the practical information that is most
valuable in statesmanship, and he pos
sesses also the ability to defend his con
victions before the people or in the for
um of the Senate. It was only logical,
therefore, that the Business Men's
League of this city should present his
name to the Pennsylvania Legislature
for the highest representative position in
the gift of the State.
There is d special force in the claim of
Philadelphia to the next United States
Senatorship This city has not had a
representative in the Senate for two gen
erations, although possessing one-fifth of
the population of the State and greater
and more varied business interests than
any community in any other section of
the Commonwealth. The claims of the
city alone to the next senatorship can be
rejected only by refusing what all fair
minded men must a-lniit is simple justice
to the people of Philadelphia. Looking
to the claims to the position which arise
from political power, there is no county,
and 110 section, of the State that ap
proaches Philadelphia in service to the
Republican party. The vote of this city
has repeatedly saved the Republican
ticket from defeat in the State, and since
the successful organization of the Repub
lican party in iB6O, Philadelphia has uni
formly given Republican majorities for
State candidates, and in the last contest
scored that majority up to over 113,000.
Common justice to Philadelphia, there
fore, demands that the next Senatorship
be awarded to this city, and the voice of
a majority of those who represent the city
in the Legislature should determine the
successful candidate. If it shall be for
Mr. Wanamaker, as is confidently ex
pected, there should be cordial co-opera
tion and united effort on the part of the
entire isenators and Representatives to
declare for any other distinguished citi
zen of Philadelphia who is fitted by posi
tion, character and attainments to fill
the office with credit to himself and the
State, he should in like manner receive
the unanimous support of orr Legisla
ture. We regard the election of a Sena
tor from this city as paramount to the in
terests of any individual candidate; but
when the organized business men of the
city present their choice, as they have
done in the case of Mr Wanamaker, it is
certainly entitled to the highest respect
in every section of the State.—Philadel
phia Times.
The candidacy of Mr. Wanamaker is
thus formally launched, and with these
forces behind him he enters upon an
active and earnest canvass. The move
ment shapes itself under strong and
worthy auspices. The Committee itself
embraces an influential array of leading
men, and it is fairly and fully represen
tative of the business element of Phila
delphia. In conjunction with the Man
ufacturers' Club it may justly claim to
speak the voice of the business communi
ty. These bodies address themselves to
the people of the State and to the Legis
lature with a powerful plea. They con
tend that this great city, with its vast
and varied interests, has a preeminent
claim to representation in the Senate.
They insist that its business elements
which have been the backbone of every
campaign are entitled to full considera
tion. They urge that the Senator should
be a man who is thoroughly familiar
with the business interests of the city
and the State; that he should be actively
associated with them, and capable of pre
senting and upholding them in the
strongest way: and they name Mr. Wana
maker as peculiarly embodying these re
A candidacy of such strength in itself
and so strongly hacked becomes formida
ble from the outset. Mr. Wanatuaker's
great ability, his public experience, his
practical knowledge of affairs, his broad
grasp of public issues and wants, his
power of impressing himself anil his
ideas, all mark him as conspicuously fit
ted for representative position In the
recent campaign he went widely over
the State anil came into personal contact
with large masses of the people. Every
where known before as the foremost
merchant, he made a deep, direct impres
sion by his earnest and forceful speeches,
aud is now a personal and familiar fig
ure in large sections of the Common
wealth. The formal inauguration of his
campaign by the League of Business Men
will meet with a wide response and as
sure a vigorous and powerful contest.—
Philadelphia I'rets.
Merchant John Wanamaker is showing
the politicians that he is "some pump
kins," too, when it comes to a contest
for honors. He has usually been consid
ered available only when fat contribu
tions were needed to help along Repub
lican campaign funds but lately he has
developed and exhibited those traits
which go to make him a most formidable
opponent iti the arena of politics. Mr.
Wanamaker has a strong following all
over the State. His enthusiasm in char
itable and religious work, to which he lia.,
been a most generous contributor, has
given him more prominence and endear
ed him in the hearts of the people more
than has his brief political activity. It
is not likely that a man with a life long
record for charity and benevolence will
be forgotten by the people of this com
monwealth in the present struggle.—
Indiana Co. Gazette.
For many years Thanksgiving Day
was peculiarly a New England institu
tion, and even at the present time it's
observation means more there than in
other parts of the country. It may al
most be called the day of the year in
New England. It is what Christmas is
in Old England, a day of family reunions
and family feasts. The church bells ring
in the morning.as on Sunday ami at Christ
mas, and the people wend their way to
the services, to return home afterward
and get ready their dinners or prepare
themselves for dinners elsewhere. Grand
pa and grandma welcome all their chil
dren and grandchildren to their board,
some coming from just across the way,
and others perhaps from far distant
homes. For, no matter how far he may
wander,the New Englander feels it a
duty, beside beirga pleasure, to be at the
old' home on this day, more than any
other day of the year, and to eat his
Thanksgiving dinner with the old folks.
And so, from far and near, on this day,
families are gathered together and in
thousands of homes turkey and cranber
ry sauce and other Thanksgiving delica
cies a r e eaten by kith and kin. It is a
day of family communion and rejoicing,
and real thanksgiving; a day when un
kind thoughts are put aside and each one
turns to his neighbor his brightest side.
But with all the rejoicing and feasting
and thanksgiving, there are very few who
stop to question why this da>' is observed
in this way or, in fact why it is observed
at all; and* even of these who wonder,
there'are not jiany who inquire. But
there must have bten a beginning and a
reason for the beginning, and ind<-ed
there was, but to find it we must go
back more than two centuries and a half.
Thus of all holidays, it is older than any
bnt Christmas and New Year's Day,
though the spirit which promoted its ob
servance in the beginning was the spirit
which descended to the men of '76, and
wave us another holiday, Independence
Thanksgiving Day is the annual fes
tival of thanksgiving for the mercies of
the closing year, and is pntictical'y a na
tional harvest festival, fixed by procla
mation of the President and the govern
ors of the state, and ranks as a legal
holiday. The earliest harvest thanks
giving in America was kept by the I'il
grim Fathers at Plymoth in 1621. In
the autumn of that year Governor Brad
ford sent out four men to gather game,
so that the whole colony might "rejoice
together," after they had gathered the
fruits of their labor. The following
year at the same season, alter the abun
dant harvest was collected, the colonists
assembled, and, as an old chronicle says
"solemnized a day of thanksgiving unto
;he Lord." Another account says that
Massasoit and his chiefs were invited to
participate in the rejoicings, and that
they remained ihree days, feasting on
venison. . .
The first recorded public thanksgiving
appointed by authority, however was
proclaimed by the governor of Massa
chusetts Bay Colony in 1631, and turned
to a happy ending a drama which might
have been a tragedy. The new colony
had been only a few months in the new
world. Hut little had been done in the
way of planting crops and tli ;se had uot
turned out over well. The people were
mainly dependent for their provisions
upon England, but a long expected ship
ladened with supplies had not come, and
the winter was hard and a famine was
threatened. The food had became less
and less, as the people strained their
eyes for the sail that did not appear. The
quantity of food allowed each person be
came sma'ler and smaller as day by day
went by, and the prospects became most
dismal, Starvation stared the people in
the face and their hopes were at the low
est ebb when the vessel from England
ladened with provisions, was sighted en
tering the harbor, according to one tradi
tion, just as the governor was giving
away his last handful of corn. What re
joicings there were then, although the
Puritans were too stolid to indulge in
the gatnholings with which the more
mercurial French would have ex
hibited their delight under such circum
The 22d of February bad been appoint
ed to be observed as a fast day but after
the arrival of the ship the governor is
sued a new proclamation, and the day
instead was made a feast day and a day
jof thanksgiving. The good people of
the colony went to church as we do now
L only thev listened to a much longer ser
serving them from starvation, and then
went home and feasted: for the Puritans
were sturdy men and loved the good
things of the table, even if their stern
religion caused them to frown 011 til -
other good things of t!:e world.
Though the Thanksgiving of today is
perhaps more than anything else a har
vest festival, yet, as in this instance,
ilianks have been offered for their mer
cies, an i days of thanksgiving have been
appointed from various causes. It seems
to have been natural in all the colonies,
even in those settled by other people
than the English, to set apart days lor
rendering thanks to the Highest Power
for blessings received, and iti New Hug
land the practice has beeti almost con
tinuous since that far away day, and that
vessel's timely arrival. In the New
Netherlands , Governor Kieft proclaimed
a public thanksgiving in 1644, 011 ac
count of a victory over the Indians, and
again in 1645, because of the conclusion
ol peace. Thanksgivings, sometimes gen
eral and sometimes partial, were ap
pointed in the several colonies, and ear y
111 the war for independence the Conti
nental Congress adopted the practice,
and thereafter appointed such days an
The first national Thanksgiving day
was appointed by Washington after the
adoption of the Constitution, the date set
being Thursday Nov., 26, 1789- I" Sei>-
tember of that year, a few days before
the adjournment of Congress Eli as Bou
dn ot moved in the House of Representa
tive* tnai the President be requested to
recommend a day of public thanksgiving
and prayer to be observed by the people
of the United States, in acknowlegment
of the many signal favors of the Almighty
God, and especially his affording them
tile opportunity peacefully to establish a
constitution of government for their safe
ty and happiness. Roger Sherman of
Couneticut supported the motion though
there were a number of cavillers ready to
oppose it. Aedanus Burk of South Caro
lina did not like this "mimicking" Eu
ropean customs, and Tucker of Virginia
intimated that it might be as well to wait
for some experience of the effect of the
Constitution before returning thinks for
it :besides he thought the question ought
to be le f t to the authorities of the several
state?. 1 11 spite of these objections how
ever, the motion was carried, and Wash
ington issued a proclamation in accord
ance with the vote, issuing another for
the general benefit an' 1 , welfare of {lu
nation in 1795
Successive Presidents were moved from
time to tiuie to do likewise and as early
as 1798 the days of thanksgiving pro
claimed l>y them began to receive the
sanction of the various church bodies.
The Book of Common Prayer, revised in
that year for the use of the Protestant
Episcopal Church in America, directs
the first Thursday in November —unless
another day be appointed by the civil
authorlti is —"to be observed as a day of
thanksgiving to Almighty God for the
fruits of the earth," etc. The last of the
religious bodice to formally recognize
the day as appointed by the President's
proclamation was the Roman Catholic,
which did not do so until 1888.
I-or over a century now a day of
thanksgiving and harvest festival has
been annually celebrated in New I'.ng
land and since 1817 in New York, l'rom
these the custom gradually extended to
other states,and tl en it became national.
Beginning in 1863, a proclamation lias
been issued annually by the President of
the United States, appointing the last
Thursday in November for a day of pub
lie thanksgiving throughout the Union,
t::d the state e ecu lives have also issued
their proclamations for the same day.
And so wlu-n you sit around the festal
board, graced by the turkey a .d "fixin,"
the occasion is rendered all the more
joyful by the thought of the similar
gatherings in thousands of homes from
the Atlantic to the Pacific throughout
this great republic.

contain matter of great interest and value
to the American reader, yet which, tor ob
