MAHON SPEAKS 01T.
Thinks the "Kipper" and Kindred l.riila-
tion Endangers Party Success.
VfOin tin- Hhilml t-lpliia I n-An.
Washington, Feb. 1M. Anio g the
members of the Pennsylvania delega
tion in Congress no topic Is discussed
with deeper interest than the charter
legislation ponding before the lA'gisIa
ture at Harrisburg. Iteprcseutntive
Mahon is outspoken in ids criticism of
the "ripper" clause of the charter hill.
He believes that a mistake is hi-ing
made by Senator Quay and the lattera
friends In attempting to force this legis
lation. "The Press" correspondent to
day asked Mr. Mahou's opinion uftnjj)
"I en n not give nn opinion on its pro
visions," he answered, "liecau-e I have
not read the hill."
It was suggested that the general lie
llef is that th" purpose of this "ripper"
I ill is to legislate out of otllee lilell elect
ed by the people, in order to punish
Republicans for opposition to the re
election of Senator Quay.
t'NWISE LEGISLATION AMI
UAH I'oLI Ill's.
"Well, If that is the purpose of the
bill," rt plieil Mr. Million, emphatically,
"it is unwise legislation and very had
polities. Senator Quay, after an ag
gressive and hitter contest, was re-elected
and his many friends rejoice with
llilll over the re-. lit. The closeness of
the vote, howevr, should make every
thoughtful Republican who loves his
party to stop ami consider whether the
warfare within tin- party should not
cease. Thousands of good and loyal
Republicans, who want no political ln
ors, for reasons satisfactory to them
selves, were opposed to Senator Quay's
re-election. The great majoritv of
them, 1 believe, have acquiesced in the
result and will now heartily support
the Senator, hoping that be may close
his political career with great honor ti
himself and to his State.
' No wise ami astute party will In
dorse a relentless warfare upon such Re
publicans, tiood, clean and wise noil-
ties demand a reconciliation of the fac
tional elements and a re-united party.
The bludgeon and the ax are not the
weapons Used by men who succeed ill
political life. A klud and conciliatory
course- toward the men who opp sed
him. and some w ho betrayed him. had
much to do with Senator Quay's suc
cess. Il i-an open scen t that many a
time he kept at hay some of his over
zealous I r lends who were anxious to
draw the knife.
si i i 'loss nf THE I'AKl V KXIi Nil EKED.
"I have come in contact w 1 1 : i many
prominent, regular Republicans from
ditfereut parts of the State who do not
hesitate to say that legislation Intended
to roll the voter of the lighis at the
jmiIIs ami to remove mi n from office
who have been iiuiv and honestly elect-
ed will meet with a si
that may endanger the
rill of protest
iticcess of the
party in tl e State.
"In the last gubernatorial election
had the elements opposed to th? re
gular ticket been consolidated on one
candidate, as in the Pattison campaign,
we would have met with defeat. The
vote of the State shows that Governor
Stone did not receive a majority of the

BBACOM'S excise hill
A VICIOUS MEASIHE.
The attention of Congressman Mahon
was then called to that other pieOS
of legislation known as the ltcacom
bill, which proposes to establish excise
"Iain not in favor of the Beacom
hill," declared Mr. Million, "because it
is a vicious measure. It is not asked
for by the people of Pennsylvania. The
liquor license business is safe in the
hands of the courts, and the people will
to the bitter end oppose putting the
power of issuing these licenses into the
hands of the political boards.
PARTY FAIRNESS SHOULD PREVAIL.
"I am and always have been and ex
pect to be always a regular Republican.
t As such I trust and bone that the bit
er ness and animosities growing out of
our late differences in the party will U
hurled and that a spirit of fairness will
prevail. I hope the men in control of
party affairs will adopt a policy which
all Republicans can and will indorse.
This reunion of the party is ttbsoluetly
necessary if we hope to elect our next
candidate for Governor, whoever he
may he, and our next I'nited State
Any other course will widen the breach
already Us) wide and endanger the
success nf th,- party."
Congressman Mahon Is reckoned as
otio of the strong Quay men of the
Htate, and has always been in harmony
with that faction. His criticism of the
schemes of Gove nor Stone and At
torney General Klkin, as contained in
the "ripper" lull and the excise hill, is,
therefore, especially important and
significant. When ask -d If he had any
objection to the publication of bis
views, heanswercd : "Nn man can he
