A- business men and as Republicans
earnestly desiring the success of enr
party, assembled from all parts of the ;
State, we ilwm it proper to make pnb
lie expression of our views on certain
matters of present political interest,
and. as we believe, of the highest im- [
jiortance to the people of the Common
wealth. In so tar as these views com
mend themselves as wise and natriotic. i
we earnestly call npon our fellow-citi |
zens holding onr political faith to take
such prompt, energetic and intelligent !
action as will make them effective.
First- We call attention to the dis
graceful condition of politics in our!
State, brought about by the prodigal I
expenditure of money to corrupt and j
debauch the voter Its baleful influence \
has been made painfully prominent in
recent years in the election and control j
of delegates to onr party conventions, j '
in the nomination and election of mem j
bers of the General Assembly and their t '
recent election of United States Sena | '
The result has been that, instead of j
the party conventions representing th»- :
frte will of the party, the} - have sue j '
cessfnlly defeated it. and public ofii i
cials, nominated and elected to faith j
fully serve the Commonwealth, have, j !
immediately upon taking their oath of ;
oftice. apparently interpreted that oath
to mean fealty tc an individual leader
and the dispenser of political patron
age, and have become meekly submis
sive to his orders
The dispassionate observer of the i>o
litical situation is forced to admit with j '
humiliation that the Republican party j '
of onr State is now dominated, control
led and used for the political and tinan '
cial aggrandizement of one man and
those whom he has chosen to partici
pate in the spoils
Second A large majority of the
members of the General Assembly of <
1897 were nominated and elected by
questionable methods, the chief end in
view being the election of a United
States Senator in accordance with the
dominating influence in State politics,
but the corrupt bargain carried with it
the absolute control of legislation for ]
all purposes. It was not an nnusnal ,
thing during the session of last year for
the citizens of the Commonwealth to
witness the humilating spectacle of ]
their representatives wasting days and <
weeks, and neglecting public business. |
because of the delays of their chief, in
giving them instructions as to what he
wished them to do. i
It is not difficult, therefore, to fix the
the responsibility for the last Legisla
ture. both as to what it did and what '
it failed to do It may be profitable to «
make reference to the record made by (
the last General Assembly.
In the organization of both branches
of the Legislature they permitted no
member or Senator to have a place upon ,
anv important committee who had the '
courage to differ from the majority in
nis views as to the person who should
t»e elected United States Senator
So numerous were the places that had
been promised for the support of their
candidate that they padded the payroll
with so-called officials without the an
thoritv of any law. and appropriations
for payment of sm-h officials only failed
of becoming laws by the interposition
of the Executive veto.
In order to protect the State Treasurer
for snTh payment, which they recogniz
ed as illegal, a bond was given toindem
nify that officer against personal loss
from such illegal payment. The history
of this transaction is recent and fresh
in th* minds of the people.
They sought to take from the public
treasury thousands of dollars for pre
tended expenses, for services upon pre
tended investigating committees, of
which the Lexow Committee is a noto
rions example, and for junketing trins of
the membei's, and failed only by reason
of the interposition of the Executive.
At a time of the most serious business
depression and the resultant falling off
of the public revenues they appropriat
e I during the last two sessions more
than $1,000,000 for purposes either un
lawful or useless, which appropriations
fortunately met executive disapproval.
For the purpose of creating new of
fices and to extend the power of patron
age they passed what is known as "the
mercantile tax bill," imposing burdens
upon and crippling almost every busi
ness interest in the Commonwealth, al
ready overtaxed, and but for the Execu
tive veto this bill would have become a
For the ptirjiose of punishing the
Mayor of Philadelphia, whom they
could not control, they passed what is
known as the Becker bill, which, had it
been suffered to become a law. would
have destroyed many of the most im
portant features of the charter govern
ing that city, and as is well known, was
universally disapproved by the people
to be affected.
To afford great opportunity to make
appropriations for useless and unlawful
purposes a serious attempt was made to
cut down the appropriations for our
public schools to the extent 0f51,000,000
which failed of passing only because of
public sentiment raised against it from
every part of the State.
They failed to obey the mandate of
the Constitution requiring them to
make legislative and Congsessional ap
Under a pretense of reform a law was
passed, with the intent of satisfying Dis
people, requiring the depositories of
public funds to pay interest, bnt they
were careful to omit from the provisions
of the bill the million or more of dollars
at all times in the sinking fund.
Numerous bills were introduced for
the nieie purpose of extorting large
sums of money from the corporate and
other interests of the State as jthe price
of preventing their passage. To satisfy
public demand an investigation of the
Treasury was ordered, but the commit
tee appointed was so constituted that
instead of investigation their plain ef
fort was to conceal, and no questioning
was permitted to be propounded by any
member except such as had been pre
pared in advance and where it wa«
known th;it the answers would do no
The foregoing reference to the work
of the last Legislature is abundantly
sufficient to indicate the character of
the members and influence by which
they were controlled.
The redeeming feature of that Legis
lature was the firm and uncompromis
ing stand taken by that lxjdy of legisla
tors known a» "the seventy-six. who
did all that possibly could be done to
protect the taxpayers of the State from
the flood of proposed corrupt legislation
and who therefore deserve the recogni
tion and gratitude of all the people of
the Commonwealth
So insolent and shameless have those
in power become that they have dared
in some instanes to recommend for ap
1 tointment to Federal office liieinl ers of
the last Legislature as a vindication of
their wrong-doing, in disregard and de
fiance of the moral sentiment of the
people of th<.i State.
Third In view of the foregoing state
uieut of facts, we consider it of the tit
most importance that the next Govern,
or of the Stat.! »h:i 11 be a man of the
highest character and integrity, rep
resentative of the best type of Repnbfi
carism, and one whom the people of
the Commonwealth can depend ui>on to
protect them, should occasion arise,
against vicious legislation, and especi
ally against the evident purpose of the
machine to pass at the next session of
the Legislature the expense bills of the
investigating and junketing committees
already referred to. which are justly
disapproved by the present Executive.
Fourth All the members of the
Lower House of the General Assembly
and one-half of the members of the Sen
ate are to be elected this year. One of
the most important duties imposed up
on that lxidy will be the election of a
United States Senator, and for the good
name of tha Commonwealth, our last
experience of this character, with the
General Assembly of IHO7, should not
be repeated.
Especially is this true, since it is com
monly understood that the present
senior Senator from Pennsylvania de
sires to lie his own successor; for we
believe that he, moro than any other ,
man, is responsible for the present cor- j
rucption of politics in our State.
Furthermore, whenever it has suited
his purpose, or it become necessary to
defeat a member uf his own party with
whem he was not in accord, he has had
no hesitation in bargaining with the
Democratic party and agreeing that the
patronage of the office shall be divided
with that party in consider* on of such
support, A notable instance of this
! character was the coalition made in
I*W> which resulted in the defeat of
| the regular Republican candidate for
Sheriff in Philadelphia county and very
' recently he sought t'> make tiie sam»-
sort of bargain foi the oftice of Receiver
of Taxes in which he failed without
any fault of his
Fifth Against the continuance of the
system, we have undertaken to describe
we enter our solemn protest, and call
upon all citizens who believe thr.t the
ballot should IK- free and nntrammeled:
that the political affairs of the Com
monwealth, should be managed in the
interest of all her citizens: and that the
surest guarantee of good government
is the election of honest and independ
ent men to public office, to attend the
primary elections and see to it that such
representatives are sent to our conven
tions, and such members to our General
Assembly as cannot be corrupted either
by the use of money or by the promise
( i" appointment to political oftice.
In making this appeal to the Republi
can voters of Pennsylvania we have
felt it to be our duty as citizens of a
grea f Commonwealth, King neither
office-holders nor office seekt-rs. to di
rect the attention of the Republican
party to the existence of a .-ystein most
vicious in character and inimical not
only to the interests of all our people
t«. dav, but which if continued will ulti
mately be dustructive of the Republi
can party and of the Government itself.
The remedy is with the people, tin op
portunity is here, and if all lie publicans
will exercise the power given to them
by the use of the ballot success is cer
