No one who has studied the career of the Pres

and eoiimge. He has never faltered and will not
falter now. In his jwtriotic and earnest speech at

U'llly lailey, who broke into the United States
Senate from Texas and distinguished himself the
day !efore adjournment by choking a smaller
colleague from Indiana, hasa chance now to meet
a man of his size. Ju lge l'eiilield, the Solicitor
of the State Department, whose alleged disregard
of JJailey's demands led to the Texan's exhibition
of himself in the Senate chamber, is out in a state
ment in which he gives liailey the lie direct ami

William H. Moody, secretary of the United
States navy, contributes to the July "Success"
an interesting article on "What a Young Man
Should Head, to-day." Mr. Moody lielieves
heartily in every man's accumulation a library of
the best b.ioks. He strongly advises the perusal
of a good newspaper everyday, in the foil wing
l'very man should mid one good newspaper
each day. I do not mean, of course, that he
should read everything iu it; but he should go
over the entire contents, carefully making his se
lections and reading attentively the articles which
give promiaeof being helpful or instructive. The
weekly, Hod, more particularly, the monthly re
views arc also of great value, for the fact that
they familiarize their readers with current history,
which, after all, is the most important history,
while at the same time jtossessing some advautage8
over the daily newppaiwrs, In-cause the editors are
not compelled to accept first reports, and also
have opportunity to correct any inaccuracies
which may creep into hurriedly prepared discuss
ions of subjects. Nevertheless, those reviews must
ever but supplement the daily newspapers, for we
are not content, iu this age, to wait until the end
of the month for our news.
Wlieu the United Suites goverinent shall buy
the coat fields of America, and operate them iu
the name of all the people, there will beno moie
strikes. Miners will be paid living wages for fair
hours of work. Coal consumers will escape
the regular annual gouge. lnys who are now
forced into mines before either body or mind is fit
for the task, to eke out with their pitiful wages
the megar earnings of their fathers, will then be
kept in school to learu the lesson of useful citizen
ship. Thanks to John Marshall, the father of
the American Constitution, and by the same tok
en the father of American Socialism, as Mr. Geo.
Wilson of Lexington, Missouri, reminds me, the
federal goverment has indisputable jiower to take
over the mines. It has several thousand times
the amount of wealth needed for the transaction.

What Republicanism Has Done Foi
the Whole People.) tfcwaftg
GROUND OF THIS YEAR'S FIGHT
The Platform Is One of the Strongest
and Ablest Documents Ever Emanat
ing From a State Convention It
Meets With Approval of All Classes.
The v'atform (if principles adopted
t.y tho last Republican state conven
tion Is one of the ablest declarations
of Its kind ever put forth by any Re
publican convention state or national.
It deserves careful perusal, and is
given In full, as follows:
Affirming the principles enunciated
by the Kfpu'ulican national conven
tion, whii-h nn-t in I'hiheb'Iphia In
190e, the Republicans of Pennsylva
nia, in representative convention as
gambled at Harris-burg, declare the fol
lowing' platform :
Under Republican rule the country
has prospered, and Pennsylvania,
with her (treat commercial, agricul
tural and industrial Interests, has de
rived a Just measure of the benefits.
For this we make acknowledgment to
the wisdom and energy our our United
States senators and representatives in
congress who have assisted in main
taining the national prestige and in
promoting the welfare of the state.
We demand that this policy in so far
as It protects and tends to develop
the Industries and Interests of the
American people shall be firmly ad
Since our last slate convention the
untimely and tragic death of Presi
dent McKInley bat plunged the coun
try in sorrow and brought to a lor
log people the deepest tense of per
sonal loss. We lament this national
calamity and cherish bit exalted char
acter and patriotic service as the most
precious legacy be could leave to a
devoted land. The great policlea and
achievements of bis administration
raised the republic to the highest
plane of general happiness, prosperity
and glory, and gave it a new position
(f greatness and influence among the
powers of the world.
His memory will best be honored
by faithfully adhering to the principles
of which be was so illustrious a repre
snUt:ve and by steadfastly carrying
forward the measures which will for
ter be associated with his wisdom and
ROOSEVELT'S RULE APPROVED.
To President Roosevelt and bis ad
lulniirtration we triv our heartleat ap
proval and support. We recognise the
tdelity with which be has carried out
the po!ii- of bis lamented predeces
sor. He i strong In oonvktion. wle lb
action, thoroughly American, of high
and patriotic ideals, and bia leadership
ettblwb confidence both in the sue
s of R!"ib;icn principle and in the
nticul prosperity of the country,
We pledge wrselves to bia renomioa
tion to tte great office which be tau
Ui4 with such ability aod patriotism.
JEULNDS POLICY INDORSED.
' la tt PhUlpplne islands wader
American rule, despite protracted guer
rilla warfare now brought to an end,
schools have been established; justice
administered by courts has for the first
time become prompt and certain; the
habeas corpus has been made a writ
of rlijht; provincial and municipal gov
ernment chosen by vote have been es
tablished and the Filipino people have
been started upon the road of self-gov-ernr.irnt.
No nation has ever achieved
so nurh in so short a time In dealing
with an Asiatic people broken Into
many trlVs. and we heartily approve
and commend tue policy of our govern
ment which lias prodaced such results.
We exter.d to our army In the Phil
ippines profound gratitude for the cour
age and success with which they have
brought the Insurrection against the
United States to an end. While we de
plore any cases of cruelty to the na
tives that may have occurred and ap
prove proper punishment and condem
nation wherever guilt is proved, we de
mand Justice for our men and due con
sideration for the sufferings and provo
cations they have undergone. AVe re
sent and we appeal to the American
people to resent the wholesale attacks 1
of the Democratic party upon our sol
diers and sailors, which are made for
political purposes now as they were af
ter Appomattox, and which seek to
tarnish the fame of the army, which is
now the common heritage and posses
sion of the American people.
1 NVe rejoice to know that the purpose
for which the United States entered
upon a war with Spain as defined by
PresiJent M'Kinley has been reallied;
that a full and final termination of hos
tilities, between the government of
Spain and the people of Cuba has been
secured; that the establishment of a
republican government in the island
capable of maintaining order and ob
serving iu international obligations
insuring peace and tranquility aad tfc
security of iu citizens a veil m tmt
own has tthen place; we rejoice
know that the result baa been effected
by the valor of American soldiers and
the wise administration of American
officers, and that, all our pledges kept,
Cuba has Uken her place, a new repub
lic amongst the nations of the earth.
AS TO CUBAN RECIPROCITY.
To the end that our past contribu
tions to the cause of Cuba may not be
Imperiled, but that prosperity and In
dependence may go hand In hand, we
Indorse the recommendation of Presi
dent RooMTelt that the United bUtea
should enter into reciprocal trade rela
tions with the Republic of Cuba tbat
we are in still Iii receipt of ample reve
nue; having conducted an expensive
war inaugurated four yeara ago, we
have paid all of iu cost and still find
the national treasury today richer by
$33,000,000 than It was before the war
began. We believe it to be the dictate
of wisdom to let well enough alone
and not to Imperil business interests
by any suggestion of present interfer
ence with revenue legislation.
While we owe a deep sense of grati
tude to the soldiers and sailors who
fought to preserve the Union and re
commend now, as ever, Just and lib
eral pensions to those who were wound
ed, as well as to the families of those
who gave up their lives In the service,
we also commend the gallantry and
self-sacrifice of the younger generation
of soldiers and sailors who served in
the war with Spain and who are now
engaged in maintaining the authority
of their country In the Philippines.
The same fair treatment that the Re
publican party has always insisted
upon for men of the Grand Army of
the Republic Is commended with equal
force and sincerity to the partici
pants In our more recent wars.
FIGHT ON COMBINES UPHELD.
We heartily approve the action of
the president of the United States
through his attorney general in insti
tuting proceedings to check the growth
of unlawful combinations intended to
ralBe the price of commodities at the
expense of the consumer, and we re
commend that similar action be Uken
in all cases where the people are op
pressed by trusu or combinations
through the Illegal manipulation of fuel
or food supplies.
We further affirm the friendship
of the Republican party for the bread
winner and home-builder whenever
and wherever his rights under the law
are assailed. We point with pride to
the passage by the Republican party in
1890 of the law devised by John Sher
man to prohibit and punish combina
tions in restraint of trade, the controi
of wages or the advancing of prices,
and challenge the Democratic party,
with all Its pretense, to cite a single en
actment Justifying iu claim of friend
ship for the worklngman.
FOR HONEST BALLOT.
Unequivocally and ' with emphasis
this convention declares for a pure
and honest ballot in the sUte of Penn
sylvania and for the enactmentof such
laws or the amendment of existing
laws as will most effectively and speed
ily accomplish this most desirable pur-
I pose. The Republican party or penn-
shall be mutually advanUgeous to it
and to the United SUtes and all effort svlvania sUnds nreoared to aid enr or
to that end of our represenUtlves in
both bouses of congress we cordially
We reaffirm our unswerving loyalty
to the Republican principles of a pro
tective tariff and deprecate any sug
gestion under existing circumstances of
a general revision of the existing tariff
laws. Under this beneficent operation
we are in the enjoyment of unparallel
ed prosperity. Capital and labor are
both remuneratively employed, our
home market has largely Increased, we
have secured our fair share of the mar
keU of the world with the promise of
still further oonquesU therein. Hav
ing reduced Uxstion within three
years to the amount of f 11 (,000,004,
all parties In remedying; any defects
that may exist in the present system
of popular suffrage or to advance any
new plan that will vouchsafe to the
people an honest ballot and fair count
We place ourselves on record as
favoring the passage of wise immigra
tion laws to the end that anarchy may
be forever driven from this country,
and that the American worklngman
shall be protected against unfair labor
In common with our countrymen
from other states we feel the Import
ance of the construction of an isth
mian canal for advancement of com
merce and to faclllute International
trade relations. ; vj
ABOUT JUDGE PENNYPACKER
A Noted Historian, With a Reputation
at Home and Abroad.
Philadelphia, July 8. The nomina
tion of Judge Penny packer has united
the Republican party and wiped ont
partisan lines. As - -the Philadelphia
Press, long an Independent organ, but
now enthusiastically supporting tho
Republican state ticket, truthfully re
marked a few days ago, "there Is not a
Republican newspaper In the state to
day that does not favor the election of
Judge Pennypacker." The reason for
this Is apparent. No candidate for the
governorship ever came before the peo
ple with a finer record, a more genial
personality, or with a wider range of
public confidence at his back. He is a
Pennsylvanlan of Pennsylvanians, for
his ancestry on the soil of this com
monwealth reaches back beyond the
foundation of the state.
Judge Pennypacker Is one of the
most affable, polished and hospitable
of public men. He Is approachable and
companionable and nothing gives him
greafpr pleasure than to gather hin
friends around his board. And yet
during the yeara of his official life, with
all of the responsibilities which he has
borne with such dignity and honor, he
has found time to prepare, publish or
deliver more than fifty papers, books
As a historian Judge Pennypacker
has a fame that extends over both sides
of the Atlantic. He should be properly
termed "The Historian of the Pennsyl
vania Germans." No single writer has
devoted so much time and Investigation
to the study and preparation of his
torical material dealing with this ad
mirable class of our population, and of
which Judge Pennypacker himself Is
one of IU highest represenUtlves.
Confessed to Murder.

over a woman, have been arrested and
