DR. J. B. SHOWALTER.
FOR JURY COMMISSIONER.
A. O. EBERHART. .
DR. SHOWALTERS NOMINATION
At New Castle, Monday, the Law
nee and Mercer county people showed
a disposition to recognize the rights of
Butler county to the Congressional
nomination at this time—in fact they
could no longer with any degree of de
cency ignore our claims- and so after a
dozen ballots had been taken they ar
ranged to throw the nomination to this
The Beaver county delegation heard
of this arrangement and fell into line,
they voting first as the counties were
called in alphabetical order—and Dr.
Showalter received the unanimous vote
of the convention.
Dr. Showalter has been a lucky man
in politics; his star is yet in the ascend
ent and we congratulate him. He is
a competent and energetic man, and
will, no donbt, be a creditable and use
ful representative of the district in the
The Trouble With The Senate.
There is in the country at largfc a gen
eral and growing feeling of contempt
for the National Senate. There is an
increasing conviction that it has lost
much of its usefulness as a branch of
the lawmaking power of the govern
ment and become mainly a hindrance
and an invincible ol>stacle to use
ful legislation. It is encouraging to
find that leading members of the Senate
itself are becoming aware of the preva
lence and intensity of this feeling of
contempt and condemnation and that
they are growing restive under it. One
of the older members of the body— the
senior Senator from Massachusetts
has been moved to pub!is h in a popu
lar magazine a discnasion of the ques
tion whether the senate has really de
generated, in which he maintains that
in some important respects that body is
better than it was in the days before
Senator Hoar easily shows that man
ners have not grown worse since the
day when Charles Sumner was brutally
stricken down in the Senate chamber
for defending his right to free speech, or
"when a Vice President was inaugurat
ed in a state'of maudlin intoxication: or
when Sumner likened Douglass to the
noisome, squat and nameless animal
who switched his tongue and filled the
Senate with an offensive odor, "although
if common rumor and current reports
of senatorial debates are to be credited,
some of these offenses against decency
may be matched in these days of ' cold
tea" and Ben Tillmans. But the aged
Senator goes on to point out more im
portant points in which he insists the
Senate has improved. He maintains
that the evil influence of the lobby has
decreased; that Senators "no longer
bring whisky-soaked brains to meet the
high demands of the public service,"
that the use of Executive patronage
for personal advancement has gone by;
that Senators as a class devote more
work to the discharge of their public
duties than formerly.
It is fortunate for the country if these
coniiiiendations are all deserved. But
after all this is said and conceded the
fact remains that the Senate is not effi
ciently—sometimes not even inefficient
ly —doing its legitimate work as part of
the legislative machinery of the coun
' l»ryr- It Ttvrb y*j unrl <1 of no tc
legislation demanded by public welfare
but it has stripped itself of the power
to legislate. That it should fail some
times to respond to the popular demand
could be tolerated by thoughtful men,
for that was one incidental object of its
creation. But this is not the gravamen
of the charges against it. It fails to
respond to the will of its own majority.
By the observance of its own traditions
and absurd precedents it lies helplessly
and almost hopelessly at the mercy of
anv member who may wish to block
the wheels of legistation. On this point
Senator Hoar makes this admission.
"Senators who have great measures in
their charge are compelled to sit in vex
ed and angry impatience while other
Senators pour out an eternal stream of
inane and empty chatter, chatter, chat
ter about matters which have no pres
ent practical importance whatever."
And he is somewhat doubtful whether
he should use the plural—Senators -in
this connection. The fact is, that any
one Senator is competent to do this and
nntil the Senate by the amendment of
its rules resumes its authority to legis
late it will continue to act under the
absolute sway of anv hair-brained and
insignificant faction of its own member
Senator Hoar thinks this domination
of the Senate by the minority is a man
ifestation of a "pestilent and prevalent"
evil which he says is showing itself
elsewhere—the "attempt by minorities
to prevent the constitutional action of
majorities." But the fact is that mi
norities are forced to submit to ma
jorities all over the country, so far as
known, except in the National Senate.
It is so in the House of Representatives;
it is so generally in both branches of
State Legislatures; it is so in city and
borough councils, and it may be so in
the Senate whenever that body makes
np its mind to cease bowing down be
fore the fetish of its own absurd tradi
tions and "courtesies" and resolves to
resume its inherent constitutional right
to rule its own action. A few years
ago a Speaker of the House by his own
will and courage rescued the lower
branch of Congress from the pestilent'
rule of the majority. Possibly Vice-
President Hobart may perform the
same great service for the upper
branch. In that event he will win the
gratitude of the country and rescue the
Senate from growing popular contempt
and condemnation. —Wellsboro Agita
The State Senate lately passed a bill
changing the existing laws relating to
holidavs in the following particulars:
The third Tuesaav of February is.made
a legal holiday. 1 his is the February
election day. " Labor day is made the

the first Saturday as observed. This is
to conform to laws of other States.

Chairman Dingley made short work
of the juggling of percentage figures by
which the Democrats in the House

did. Said Mr. Dingley: "Notwith

in every schedule except earthenware,
glass, tobacco, and, I think silk to some
extent —notwithstanding that in every
schedule except these the present bill
carries actually less duty than was car
ried in the act of 1890, and notwith
standing the fact that in many of the
schedules it carries duties substantially
the same as those in the present (Demo
cratic) law. yet if you convert these
specific duties into ad valorem percent
ages, not taking into consideration the
changes of value between 1890 and 1H96
yon appear to have an increase of
duties imposed, when as a matter of
fact, the actual duties imposed are less.

The Libel Law
In the last Wednesday the
lirst section of the bill to liberalize the
libel laws of Pennsylvania so as to per
mit the truth to be pleaded in mitiga
tion or justification of the alleged libel
was voted down, and the whole bill fell
with it. The first section simply pro
vided that when a man was convicted
or acquitted of 1i 1 »el in one county of
the State he could not l>e prosecuted in
any other county.
It is simply amazing that the Legisla
tnre of Pennsylvania should exhibit
such an illiberal spirit towards the
newspapers of the State. Of the forty
nine States and territories in the 1 nion
Pennsylvania is the only one that does
not permit the truth to be pnt in evi
dence bv the defendant in an action for
libel brought by a private individual.
In many of the States the truth is a suf
fiicient justification without regard to
the motive, and in all the States except
ing Pennsylvania, the truth published
with good" motives and justifiable ends,
amounts to a complete defense.
Our libel laws cauie down to us trom
the time of James I as a part of the
common law of England. There ha\ e
been no improvements since that ex
cepting the Constitutional provision
which permits the truth to be told con
cerning public officials. After the com
mon law governing libel and slander
passed into our system from the mother
country, .the laws of England were
greatly modified and liberalized, but
they did not apply in this country after
the revolution. Consequently the State
of Pennsylvania is still clinging to the
mouldy and cast off garments of des
potism. The laws in use by us were
specially designed to suppress and si
lence public discussion in an absolute
monarchy. Their purpose was to pre
iu*rva anui protect the kiiipreroga
tive in an age when liberty was a
dream. . .
The whole system of modern journal
ism has grown up since these laws were
enacted, and it is no wonder that they
do not fit.
The fiction of law which assumes
that criticism of a man s conduct is a
breech of the peace.is still clinging like a
barnacle to the practice and precedent
governing libel in Pennsylvania, ihis
doctrine ignores man s personal rights
reputation, credit and a good name,
and assumes that every man is alike
entitled to honor and respect regardless
of his conduct. It would prevent
newspapers from ixposing imposters
and protect the public from the schemes
of bunco men to rob them, because the
truth is more likely to provoke a man s
wrath than a lie, consequently the
greater the truth the greater the libel.
It also ignores the freedom of speech
and of the press, without which there
can beno real liberty.
The libel law of Pennsylvania, based
almost exclusively upon the common
law of England, which has been super
ceded by statute laws in that country
more in harmong with the spirit of lib
erty and civilization, is so indefinite
that it is scarcely construed alike by
any two judges. Its absurdity and in
justice is so apparent that few convic
tions are obtained under it. But the
fact remains that it is a constant men
ace to the liberty of the press, and
consequently to the best interests of the
people.— Punxsutawney Spirit.
