Advice to Pennsylvania Repub
licans From the Chief of
the Rough Riders.
STAND BY M'KINLEY.
National Issues Everywhere Involved
In the Election of United States Sen
ators and Representatives to tlie
Lower House of Congress.
Colonel Theodore Roosevelt, the
rough rider hero of the Cuban war and
Republican nominee for governor of the
Empire state, has received many in
vitations to speak in the present cam
paign in different states in the Union,
says a special dispatch from New
York city. He has had most compli
mentary letters from Republicans in
Pennsylvania, who desire to tender him
ovations such as would demonstrate to
the popular admiration of his valiant
services in the cause of his country's
honor and his loyalty to President Mc-
Kinley and the Republican party in the
present national political crisis. Colo
nel Roosevelt has stated that if his en
gagements made by the Republican
committee of his own state will per
mit him to do so he will make at least
one speech in Pennsylvania for Colo
nel Stone and the whole Republican
Colonel Roosevelt is impressed with
the fact that every Republican should
stand true 10 his party colors at the
coming election, especially in states '
like Now York. Pennsylvania. New j
Jersey and the others where legisla
tures are to IK- elected which should
send Republicans to the United States ]
senate and with as nearly as possible
a full delegation to the lower house of I
National issues are paramount this j
year," said Colonel Roosevelt in com- j
menting" on this subject. "It is not ;
more possible to,, conduct a state elec
tion now without regard to national
issues than it was possible so to con- |
duct one in 1861 or ISS3. As it then was.
so it now is. the interests of the na- j
Hon as a whole, which is of vital ab
sorbing interest to each citizen. Then,
as now. the Republican party was 112
forced to lind new issues, to confront
new problems. Then, as now, it was
forced not to follow, but to make pre- !
cedents. In 1861 we had to preserve the
republic for its great destiny; in 1898
we have to take a long stride toward
the accomplishment of that destiny.
The Republican party, therefore, in its
state platforms, does well to reiterate
the promises under which it was pos
sible to elect a Republican president;
pledges which made it possible to re
store prosperity to our country and to
put the nation where It is possible to i
work out the glorious future which Is
now before a reunited nation. The is- I
sues for honest money, for protection to
American industry, for the upbuilding
of a merchant marine adequate to car- j
iy the commerce of the world and to:
form a naval militia in times of war, I
are as vital this year as they were in
the great contest which was so suc
cessfully fought in 1896. We must fur
ther strengthen our navy and build up
our army, so that they may be equal
to any demand made upon hem as we
work out our destiny. Hawaii and
Porto Rico are ours, and in the East
and AVest Indies the Interests of the
nation shall be safeguarded.
"Republicans everywhere should up
hold the administration of President
McKinley by standing loyally by their

Congressmen Who Ar» IXeettod to

Pennsylvania at next month's elec

will name a United States senator to
succeed Colonel M. S. Quay. There are
also 28 district representatives to con
gress, and two from the state atlarge,
who will deal with questions as im
portant as any that ever received the
attention of the national congress.
The next congress must act upon the
question of the tariff and internal reve
nues. Our new possessions will disturb
our tariff revenues. A large portion of
the, increased receipts from the war
revenue bill will become unnecessary.
These matters must all be revised, and
this can only be safely done by the

obligations, and to pave t lie way
for unlimited coinage of these dollars.
This resolution passed the senate by
large majority, and was defeated in
the house by the Republicans.
STAND BY M'KINLEY.
It rests with Pennsylvania Repub
licans to say whether they shall follow
the Wanamaker malcontents, and, by
aiding in the fusion deals of bolting
Republicans, ambitious Democrats and
Prohibitionists, contribute to the suc
cess of the Democracy, or stand by the
regular Republican nominees that rep
resent the party of President McKinley,
patriotism and prosperity.
President McKinley expects every
Republican to stand by him in the
present crisis. The great problems that
have grown out of the war have yet
to be settled.
The president knew at the beginning,
as the country now knows, how unpre
pared we were foi war. We had a
navy which any nation might envy. We
had only the skeleton of an army. To I
properly equip and organize an army '
of 300,000 men and place them In the '

New questions have grown out of the
war. New territory has been acquired.
What shall be done with it? Shall we
adopt a colonial policy? What shall
it be? Whatever is done with these
islands we must lift up their semi
barbarous people toward the level of
Shall we trust their settlement to
those who two years ago were mak
ing a crusade against law and order,
against American credit and appealing
to the lowest motives of the citizen;
or shall we stand by the administration
and give to President McKinley at the
national capital a senate and a house
of representatives who will aid hint in
every patriotic endeavor to carry sound
systems of government into those isl
ands of the sea?
THE ISSUE IN KVERY DISTRICT.
| The question before the people is
simply this: "Is William McKinley to
stand alone at one end of the avenue
with a hostile house and hostile senate
at the other, or are we to stay up the
arms of that brave, gallant, wise, pa
triotic president, and give him at the
other >-nd of the avenue not onlv a
house of representatives, but a senate
I that will help to solve these problems?"
In every legislative district in the
Keystone state where the United States
senatorship is involved, and in every
congressional district. Republicans
l must stand by their party nominees at

They owe this to themselves, they

A STEER'S STRANGE DEATH.
Ill> Horn* «rrn Tlirouith His Kyi-a
II n.l K Illei! Htm.
A squatter in the back blocks of
New South Wales had a young steer
with horns so perfectly turned that
t.hey formed two artistic loops at the
sides of his head. One day "Boss"
strayed with a mob of store cattle in
| to a piece of wild country infested only
Jay kangaroos and the out-station
[boundary riders' families.
These cattle are rounded up and
otherwise handled but once a year.
Before this annual yarding took place
j "Boss" had become a fractious terror
to every animal and man in that
range. He had terrified and scattered
the herd that was once his mates; fie
had charged madly every kind person
who was wont to pat him. Because
his horns curled like those of a sheep
he was called "Sheep Head." His
mild, tractable nature added to this
delusion of likening him to a lamb.
Six months after his entrance upon
the range he began to act strangely.
A wild look shot out of his eye under
the points of the ingrowing horns,
whose shadow fell heavier and heav
ier upon the retina. He constantly
shook his head, as if trying to rid
himself of some annoyance. Then
"Boss" would stand and stare at the
points which were pressing the pupils
nearly up against the sockets. He
became more irritable and unfriendly.
He roared, stamped, shook his crazed
head and stared at the creeping things
before his vision.
At. hist "Boss" went mad and bel
lowed through the night like an en
raged demon. He chased everything
I In sight, and viciously dashed himself
j against the forest trees. The mere
| tramp of a foot angered him. The
points of the horns were cruelly press
! ing his helpless eyes back in their
sockets, and every jar upon the
ground tortured his brain and enraged
j him. "Boss" had scattered the mob
! of his ruminating mates and had so
| terrorized the few people about that
fences did not give a sense of security.
Women and children lived in mortal
I dread of the unfortunate beast,
i At length his maddened roar WHS
i heard no more. About a month after
that the out-boundary rider went out
1 with dogs and ;t Winchester rifle to
end the suffering of "Sheep Head
Boss." After searching for two days
the bullock was found. "Boss" was
j dead. lie was lying under a clump
I of acacia, less sweet than their blos
soms. He had evidently been dead
for a week or more and had been
: blind for months. The horns had
grown into his eyes and almost touch
!ed the bone of the skull behind. Thu
'head of the poor beast was as strange
tin object as ever was seen.
The horns of "Boss" were neve:

Washington, Oct. 4. —The Democracy
have high hopes ol' capturing tho noxt

more apparent. Since William Jen

colonel in the volunteers, c ame to town
to consult v/itli his friends on the po
litical situation tnc-rc have been nu
merous evidences of activity and con
fidence al the headquarters of the
Democratic congressional campaign
committee. In what is generally re
garded as "off years" in politics the
Democrats invariably make gains.
They count on unprecedented acces
sions this fall. They seem to have not
the slightest doubt of getting the house
by a good majority. The Republicans
lacking three of a majority out of a
membership of 90 in the senate, against
a combination of Democrats and Popu
lists, it will be seen that the situation
from a Republican standpoint is quite
The recent election returns from
Maie and Vermont, showing a great
falling off in the Republican vote, clue
to apathy and over confidence, no
doubt, is what make the Republican
leaders fear that the same condition
of affairs may be encountered in other
heretofore reliably Republican states
and districts. The Democratis are ex
pecting substantial gains in Connecti
cut, Massachusetts, New York, New
Jersey, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Illinois and
many of the far western states.
THE PENNSYLVANIA SENATOR
Ex-Congressman James Kerr, of
Pennsylvania, who is secretary of the
Democratic congressional committee,
and who was one of those with whom
Bryan conferred, makes no secret of
his prediction that great gains may be
looked for in the Keystone state for the
Democracy. Kerr is in touch with the
Judge Gordon leadership of the Phila
delphia Democracy, and is in a posi
tion to know the inside workings of the
Wanamaker and Swallow organizations
in the state campaign. The Democratic
leaders seem to think that Wanamaker,
Swallow and Gordon thoroughly under
stand each other and that their in
terests lie in the same lines. This
tion, according to their information,
has undertaken to disrupt the Repub
lican organization. Wherever possible
they are to get votes for Swallow for
governor, and elect independent or
bolting Republicans, or Democrats, to
the state legislature. The I'nited
Oiuffey, the Democratic millionaire, and
national committeman, is also said to
have hopes of getting to the senate

The Republicans of New York are be
coming alarmed at the outlook in the
Empire state. The Democrats there, as
In Pennsylvania, are trying the game
of putting state issues to the front, and
while publicly ignoring national poli
tics, are quietly at work planning to
capture close or debatable congrea
•ional and legislative districts.
