Tage Pittsburgh Daily Times is a hust-
ler from Hustlersville. It scooped all the
other Pittsburgh papers in giving the
news concerning the noted Fitzsimmons
affair. The Times is a sort of all-round
dandy newspaper, Anyway. .
Now that Blaine is out of the Presi-
dential race, this paper is for the man
that “‘gets there” at the Republican Na-
tional convention. Either Harrison,
Gresham or Bob Lincoln will fill the bill
and be able to knock out anything the
Deniocrats can stick up.
Some people in these days of divorces
are much opposed to divorces. - With all
such this paper hegs leave to differ. Di-
vorces are in most cases a good thing and
usually sesult from married folks not be-
ing adapted to each other. When a mar-
ried couple find that they are not adapted
to each other, they should lose no time
in becoming divorced, for when people
live together in continual turmoil they
are ‘unfit torear families and the public
good and future welfare of the world de-
mand their separation,
As will be seen on th page of this is-
sus, James G. Blaine is out with a letier
stating that he is not a candidate for the
presidency under any circumstances.
That ought to settle it, but it grinds Tee
STAR to learn that such is really the case,
for Mr. Blaine is undpubtedly the almost
unanimous choice of his party for the of-
fice. However, ‘it is greater to be Jim
Blaine than to be president, and the pehple
of the whole world recognize that fact.
Evin should he retire fo private life. he |
would still stand head and shoulders above
all the world for greatness. He is great
er than all the crowned heads of the
world combined, mightier than the com-
bined armies of the globe, grander than
grandeur itself.
JupciNg from the lengthy article in
this issue signed “Miner,” and headed
Grassy Hollow;” some people may be
lead to believe that this is a regular K. of
L. paper. But such is not the case, how:
ever, as THE STAR is not an organ pub- |
lished in the interests of any one class ot}
newspaper, and as our chief object is
print the news, we feel just as independ
‘ent'as a hog on ice. ‘But as this paper is
kind in general, and for the greatest good
to the greatest number of the inhabitants
in the locality in which it is published.
we do not feel disposed to deny space to
‘anyone who has anything to say in which
this community is interested.
This town may properly be classed
with mining towns, as its prosperity is
largely due to the men who wield the
This being the case we
deem it but justice to the miners to give
space to their opinions in our columns,
for the whole community is more or less
interested in their welfare. If they are
prosperous, the whole country around
us is prosperous, while if business is dull
with them it is also more or less dull with
the rest of us. It don’t pay to try to keep
the laboring men down, for they are the
bone and sinew of our country, and when
yoni sneer at what the laboring man has
to say for his cause, or try to keep him
from giving his views on things of pub-
lic interest, then you are indeed opposing
your own best interests. *
All men have a right to lie heard upon
ghestions in which the public is inter-
ested, and the columns of this paper are
open to capital- and labor alike. All we
ask is for contributors to avoid getting
into personalities and, to limit themselves
toa reasonable amount of space. The
Grassy Hollow article is a good one and |
contains some excellent points—points
which any honest man can: endorse.
But the writer .monopulizes too much of
our space. and hereafter must he more
brief, if he has anything further to say.

I am very much interested in the welfare

us news of friends’ and acquaintances
‘and seems as the face of an old friend
looking in on us among the mountains
up here in Cambria county.
I judge itis not the mission of the
newspaper or the ministry to follow in
the wake of public opinion, and be
fearful of making any advance until af-
ter the public pulse had been felt and the
assurance received that no offense would
