JUDGE KUNKEL AS OTHERS SEE HIM
The enthusiastic support that Judge George Kun
kel is receiving in Dauphiu county iu his non
partisan contest as a candidate for judge of the
Supreme Court of Pennsylvania, is based on far
more than the mere fact that he is a "favorite son"
of this his home section of the state. Dauphiu
countians are for Judge Kunkel for other reasons
than merely that he is personally popular and has
made good on the local bench.
These "other reasons" that qualify Judge Kunkel
for the Supreme Court post are recognized not only
in ihe candidate's home county where most of the
voters have gained, by direct personal contact with
him, an intimate knowledge of his high personal
qualifications and traits character. That his
exceptional worth as a judge is recognized else
where in the state was shown recently when the
Philadelphia "Public Ledger," without reservation,
• ailed on the voters to support Judge Kunkel, and
. again this morning when the "North American," of
the same city, gave him an unqualified endorsement
in language which we quote in part as follows:
Judge Kunkel cannot boast, nor need lie apologize for,
the backing of any political machine or non-political organ
i/.ation. Ho has been prominent among a younger and
virile generation of lawyers, who gave the Republican party
its character in the days of its deserved ascendency.
The records show that as a member of the legislature
he spasmodically showed traits of political independence;
yet the fact remains that no organization follower was more
consistently regular and amendable to orders.
His nomination for the Dauphin county court was dic
tated by considerations no more lofty than those governing
the selection of most of our common pleas judges. » « »
An important phase of the court's work lay in its .juris
diction over questions arising from tiie complicated ballot
lavl-s. * * * To him the public owes the establishment
of a consistent line of .just interpretations and rulings in
these matters. All who have concerned themselves to
strengthen the right of independent voting recognize the
value of his souud and impartial upon these
But in another matter, of perhaps wider and more popu
lar interest, Judge Kunkel gave the state distinguished
He presided over the trials of the oapitol graft de
fendants. It was due to his inflexible administration of
,-justice, in the face of pressure from the most influential
sources, that the law was vindicated and the guilty
Only those familiar with the methods employed to con
trol judges who have received their places by organization
favor can even remotely realize how strong must be the
sense of duty that can resist the demands and importunities
in such a case as this, involving not only millions of dol
lars and the fate of noted men, but the downfall of a
, Republican administration. * * *
Judge Kunkel's judicial repute docs not wholly rest,
however, upon the records we have cited. His conduct with
respect to all issues coming before him has been impartial
No finer tribute, perhaps, could be paid to a jurist than
he received in the unanimous indorsement for the Supreme
Court by the Dauphin county bar —the leaders being the
attorneys who had fought most zealously to free the cap
itol grafters. This provided a wholesome illustration of
the fact that the best way for a public man to win respect
is by doing his duty with fearlessness and integrity.
It is no spirit of partisanship, in no special appeal to
Progresses, that wo advocate support of the candidacy
of Judge Kunkel for the Supreme Court.
We urge this upon all citizens who value judicial integ
rity and independence; who realize that an honest judiciary
is the strongest protection of our liberties; who believe no

if his candidacy is backed by the sinister forces which war I
against the public welfare.
A LIBRARIAN'S HIGHEST DUTY
At a recent convention of librarians a delegate
stated that the highest duty of a keeper of a public
library is to guard the books from harm and see
to it that all of them are always in their proper
places. A librarian who heeds such advice could
hardly expect to accomplish much good in the com
munity in which the books are so carefully pre
served. If a librarian has any one duty which
should be performed above all others it is to see
to it that as many books as possible are not always
in their places.
Books are in a public library to be used and used
hard. Precautions, of course, must be taken to
prevent volumes from being damaged without ex
cuse, but the greater the wear and tear on them,
through ordinary usage, the more serviceable are
books shown to be. The existence of plentiful
thumb marks on the pages of a book should be
approved not deprecated; the necessity for rebind
ing a volume should be welcomed not deplored.
The usefulness of a present-day municipal
library, conducted as intelligently as the one in
this city, is perhaps not appreciated as fully as it
shonld be by community officials and citizens. Few
other agencies it any city influence as many dif
ferent kinds of persons, or meet as great a variety
of needs as the public library.
Delegates at the national convention of librar
ians declared that their most difficult work was
the guiding of boys and girls in the choice of books.
If it is the most difficult it is also the most impor
tant. Adults generally have clearly defined opin
ions of what they want to read, and are able to
select volumes from the shelves without assistance,
seldom giving employes any more trouble than
that of stamping their cards. Children, however,
do not take out books with so much independence,
or if they do. they are not likely to get volumes
which are exactly suited to their needs. Their
ideas about books are formative and need to be
carefully moulded by discriminating elders. This
duty most often devolves upon the librarian.
The place of a custodian of books is not so much
to dictate what works are to be sought, and what
to be shunned, when the borrowers of the books
are men and women. A library needs only to be
kept attractive, and good order maintained on the
shelves to fulfill its purpose so far as patrons with
mature judgments are concerned. A librarian's
highest certainly should not be to keep all
the books in their places. Large circulation, with
plenty of wear and tear, is far more to be desired.
If we believe all of them they are all going to be

First Steam War Vessel
One hundred years ago to-day the
world's first steam war vessel, the De
mologos, afterward. rechristened the
Fulton in honor of its constructor, was
launched from a privately-owned ship
yard on the New York bank of the
East river. Its construction had beed
inspired from the war of 1812. Not
much longer than the modern excursion
boat, measuring in length 167 feet, and
built of wood, the vessel slipped her
moorings on June 1, 1815, and proceed
ed into New York Bay under her own
steam upon her maiden voyage. On the
Fourth of July she again ventured to
sea for a speed trial, sailing 53 miles
in eight and half hours. This pioneer
vessel of modern navies never re
ceived her baptism of fire, peace hav
ing been declared before the Demologos
was ready for battle, but she proved
j an instrument of destruction when her
boilers exploded while she lay in the
Brooklyn Navy Yard on June 4, 1829,
destroying the vessel and killing 26

2,800 Steam Warships To-day
To-day while steam propels almost
all of the 2,800 or more warships of
the world's navies, already new forms
of propulsive power are being adopt
ed, such as internal-combustion gas
engines and various forms of motors;
while electric motors already are be
ing experimented with and have been
installed on one American naval col
lier. Probably the horsepower of the
Demologos was not as great as that
which propels a naval launch that is
swung abroad a modern warship.
Against her speed of a little more than
six miles an hour, there are warships
to-day that attain a speed of thirty
knots an hour and more. War vessels
that could store the Demologos on
their decks have made sustained voy
ages of between seven and eight thou
sand miles without re-coaling, thus dis
proving the mathematical demonstra
tion of Dionysius Lardner, who sought
to prove by figures in the young days
of steam that no ship could ever carry
enough coal to feed her engines while
crossing the Atlantic.

Mary Slaughter's Noble Work
"When a woman will she will" is
an old saw, but when, a woman who
was born a slave, came North and ob
tained an education an'd then estab
lished a home for the old and feeble
women of her race—when such a wom
an undertakes a mission she not only
| succeeds but deserves suecess. This
| week there appeared before the State
j Hoard of Charities to ask for the rec
i ommendation of an appropriation for
the Home for Aged Colored Women in
Williamsport a venerable colored wom
an, Mary Slaughter by name, who has
j by her own efforts done more for her
i race than many a man whose achieve
i meats are exploited to make him promi
j nent in the public eye. Mary Slaughter
was born a slave, and after the Civil
i war had set her free she established her
home in Williamsport. She was a wom
an of most estimable character, always
on the lookout to help her people, and
in her good work she was assisted by
prominent people in Williamsport. The
I late Senator J. Henry Cochran was
; numbered among her helpful friends, as
I was the late Attorney General Henry
C. McC'ormiek. Aged and infirm col
ored women find a home in this insti
tution, and the name of Mary Slaughter
is known to all good people in Wil
liamsport. Owning a little property
Mary Slaughter mortgaged it to estab
[ lish this home for colored women. The
last legislature gave her SI,OOO for
maintenance for two years, and SI,OOO
for the payment of the mortgage, but,
unfortunately, the home was not car
ried on by an incorporated institution
and the money for the payment of the
mortgage could not be paid under the
law. This year Secretary Bromley
Wharton, of the State Board of Chari
ties, and Chauncey P. Rogers, of the
Auditor General's Department, prepared
an appropriation bill for the good wom
an that will not only provide for the
upkeep of the institution but also pave
the way for the paying of the mort
gage. Such women as Mary Slaughter
are an honor to her race. In her home
in Williamsport are ten aged and in
firm colored women and they are all
well cared for in their declining years.

ten thousand people crowded to get into

at one tyne and many hundreds were
unable to gain admittance.
"It is the most wonderful outpour

shook hands with thousands. From 2
o'clock until seven there was a contin

reception hall and they were still in
line when Dr. Brumbaugh was com
pelled to leave for the Court House.
Preceding the four mass meetings there
was a demonstration of the League for

who was one of the leaders in the Bull

candidacy of Dr. Brumbaugh. The great
demonstration last night was in strik
ing contrast to the' visit of Colonel
Roosevelt yesterday morning. The Col

Dr. Brumbaugh said in part:
"There are some people who have
been greatly disturbed by my candi
dacy. I am not surprised at that; I
did not become a candidate to please
the opposition. I was not interested in
that and no doubt they were disturbed
and their disturbance takes the form
of one or two interesting inquiries, one
of which I hear being: ' Who is back
of Dr. Brumbaugh in his candidacy for
Governor!' Let me tell you: Nobody
is back of Dr. Brumbaugh except the
voters of this State, who nominated me.
If you vote for me for Governor you
will get exactly me and nothing else
in the world. Don't forget that.
"In conclusion, I ask you to remem
ber this: I will not say a thing to get
a vote that 1 won't do when the vote is
given. Further than that, 1 want the
men of Pennsylvania, on the 3d of No

be happy with the result."

turned his attention to' Mr. Pinchot, liis
Washington party rival for United

as much about tariff as a bulldog knows

shouted in glee.
Turning his shafts on Mr. iMcCor

has an idea that he can purchase the

"He may spend every dollar he is

and then addod "they are getting ready
