No one who has studied the career of the Pres ident could help being impressed with his honesty and eoiimge. He has never faltered and will not falter now. In his jwtriotic and earnest speech at Pittsburg h-.'dechired that Cuba would yet lie given reciprocity and that thctrusts would be controll ed, lleleaves nodmUsns to liis position on these questions. 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 twits him with l)cing "one of those men who go hunting for trouble" and wlioindulge, at regular periods, in "spasmodic displays of asiuinity." Judge IVulield may not le a pugilist but he has sand and the bully cm find him if he is still hunt ing trouble. LITEKARY NOTES. 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 words: 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. When will it acquire the common sense From "Note and Comment" by Frank l'utman, iu July National. In the Review of Reviews for July the issues of the great coal strikeare presented from various points of view ; the editor, in "The Progress ol the World," reviews the position of the railroads and the operators ; an illustrated account of the methods of anthracite mining is contributed by Mrs. Rosamond D. Rhone, of Wilkes JJane; Dr. Talcott Williams gives "A General View of the Coal Strike ;" and II. T. Neweonib, e liter of the Railway World, furnishes important sta tistical data relative to the anthracite-carrying railraiKi. win s 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 hered to. 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 sutetmanship. 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 Indorse. 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 from abroad. 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 and addresses. 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. Altoona, Pa., July I. Simon and Andy Suvchock, brothers, who mur dered Andy Magueschlah, of Bakers- town, Cambria county, after a quarrel over a woman, have been arrested and confessed the crime. They said tbey stabbed the victim to death with dag gers and then placed the body on the railroad track, where it was run over by m passing train, the head being car ried JO fet away from the trunk. Cuts on the bead led the authorities to sus pect murder. Forty-two Buildings Burned. Chariotte. N. C, July 7. A special from Wilmington, N. C, says that a fire at Clinton, N. C, yesterday de stroyed 2 stores and residences, causing a loss of $100,000, on which there wss small Insurance.
