The penuy-a-liners at Washington hav- j
ing .started a ruinor that the stalwart
leaders of Pennsylvania had held a caucus
iu Washington and determined to make
Gen Beaver a candidate for Governor next j
full, the Philadelphia Press remarks:
Gen. James A. Beaver is a gallant sol
dier, a sturdy Republican, and a stainless
citizen. For some time past his name
lias been prominently associated in the |
public mind with the next nomination for
Governor, and he possesses many strong
atributes as a popular standard bearer,
if he were to enter the canvas on his own
merits, he would certainly be a formida
ble candidate; and it might easily be that
with a fair and just spirit, he could readi
ly unite all elements of the party both in
the nomination and in the campaign.
The one thing that would be disastrous
to the movement iu his behalf would be
the popular belief that the bosses had un
dertaken to make him the candidate with
out regard to public sentiment, and had
"set up" his nomination by machine
methods. Such an impression would be
well-nigh fatal. And with this wide
spread hostility to autocratic rule, the
story published the other day t.iat the
machine managers had held a little cau
cus of their own and assumed to determ
ine that he should be Governor has stir
red a deep public feeling. The people are
in no mood for such usuapations of their
own prerogative. They accept leaders,
but not dictators; they want organiza
tion, but not servility. Especially when
it comes to the head of the Common
wealth, they want a Governor of the peo
ple and for tho peopld, and not a Gover
nor by the bosses and for the bosses.
Such a story was calculated to prejudice,
and injure General Beaver.
We are at a loss to see why Gen. Bea
ver's " strong atributes " should be dis
regarded simply because certain men fa
vor Ills nomination, and without whose I
aid his election would be uncertain to say
the least, li will be observed the I'ress
says Gen. Beaver's name' " has been
prominently associated in the public
mind" in connection with the Gubernato
rial nomination, for some time prior to
the reported stalwart caucus. It would
seem to us that if Mr Cameron and his co
leaders have declared for Beaver under
such circumstances, that the fact is a
gratifying evidence that they submit to
the public will in the matter and have no
policy of their own in opposition to pop
ular sentiment. We have no particular
love for Mr. Cameron, but it is simple
justice to him that he be allowed to ex
press his preferences for candidates, es
pecially when it is known that lie will be
called upon to take an active part in the
election of the ticket whoever may be the

The Vc ew 1 'or/f Tribune I
"The Leading American Newspaper."
During the year 1882 THE TRIBUNE hopes to em
ploy with increasing success the work nnd the
methods which have won for it so large a measure
of popular approval. Jt has attained, and means
never to lose the high standard of success which
was aimed at by its founder the largest circulation
among the best people. So large a circulation and
one . o widely distributed over the entire territory
of the Nation has never been attained by any other
newspaper in the United States. We accept this
fact as the verdict of the American people upon the
conduct and character of the TRIBUNE. The po
sition it occupies could never have been gained nor
retained but by pre-eminent merits as a newspaper
as an organ of sound opinion and an advocate of
just public measures.
In short the TRIBUNE will as heretofore continue
to be the medium of the best thought and the voice
of the best conscience of the time ; will keep abreast
of the highest progress,favor the freest discussion,
hear all sides, appeal always to the most enlighten
ed intelligence and the purest morality, and refuse
peremptorily to cater to the tastes of the vile or the
prcjud.ccs of the ignorant.
The well-known special features of the TRIBUNE
will be carefully maintained, its Agricultural De
partment will remain as it is, tho fullest and best.
The Household and Young Folks' Departments,the
literary, scientific and religious features, the stand
ard market reports will all be kept up and extend
ed as opportunity may seuve.
VALUABLE PREMIUMS.—The TTIBUNE has
never been equaled by any other paper in the per
