VOL. YI.--NO. 132. SHENANDOAH, PA., TUESDAY. JULY 7. 1S91. ONE CENT.
THE STIEEST EOAD TO WEALTH IS THROUGH LIBERAL ADVEETISIISTG
' I i i i i
WHAT IT DOBS.
In oue breath tUo Iowa Democrats
profess groat devotion to tuo Interests
of the laboring masses and demand free
public employment agencies, and in
almost the next breath they denounce
the greatest employment agency ever
created by law, the protective tarlfl
system. Remember, what the
McKiuley bill does; It raises duties on
goods of which we have been Import
ing $200,000,000 a year so that wo can
make them in this country instead of
importing them. It Is building now
mills and enlarging old mills in almost
very corner of the laud. Themeasure
of the opportunity it gives to such
mills by providing them with tho home
market is tho success with which
it keeps out Imported goods.
The increased duty on tin plute wont
into ellcct July 1.
We import $21,000,000 of tiu plate
yearly, and the new duty will enable
us to make a very large part of that
here. If you want to see what sort
fhbf an "employment agonoy" that Is,
over to Brooklyn and see tho tin
, plate mill, over 300 feet long, that
Somors Brothers are building.
Now honestly, worklugmen, what do
;ou think of a party that professc3 to
want to get work for you and that
howls against the greatest agency ever
iet foot to make work for you? "What
svould you think of a village council
man who promised to work foryou-and
then voted against giving n site to the
owners of a factory who had promised
Ep come and locate In that village if
they got a site to build their mill on?

THEIR VIEWS ON THE POLITI
CAL COUNTY SITUATION.
JUDGE GREEN FOR THE JUDGESHIP
Ex-Dl8trlot Attorney Pomoroy Is
Spoken of as a Candidate for
tho Constitutional Conven
tion Ell Perkins.
If that littlo band of "dissatlsBed Re
publicans" would fl ip ovor to the Demo
cratic party in a body thoy would no
doubt find tho company congenial. Tli6y
vote the Democratic ticket nine limes out
of ten. They aro undeserving of being
rocognizod as Republicans.
Ex-District Attorney J. II. Pomoroy, of
Shonaudoah, is a candidato for tho Con
stitutional Convention irom this district.
Mr. Pomeroy'a nomination would moan
his election. Ho possesses ovory qualifica
tion in the highest degree to discharge tho
duties of tho ollloo. Ashland Local.
Tho friends of Joe Woll, of Potlsville,
want him to aocuro tbo nomination for
Sheriff on the Democratic ticket. Thoy do
not ask this, but demand it, and declare
thoy will not tako a back seat, now does
this suit tho north-of-tho-mounlain Demo'
cratlc candidatos who have bocomo weary
of waiting for their turn? Thon, again,
south-of-tho-mountala pooplo want tho
Judgoshlp on tho Democratic ticket. They
are not backward. Tho earth would suit
them exactly if thoy could got their arms
around it. It sooras thoy havo a mortgago
on tho Domocratio party. Thoy furnish
the candidates and tho Democratic party
north-of-the-mountaiu furnish tho votes,
It is understood Ashland and Tamaqua aro
to have tho Democratic roprosontativo3 to
tho Constitutional Convention, Mahanoy
City will be given tho Poor Directorship
to suck and Shenandoah will cot-nothing.
North-of-the-mountain Republicans bo-
llovo that Judgo Oreen should succeed
himself and thoro are a number of Demo
crats of the samo opinion. Judge Greon
has demonstrated his ability for tho office
in a manner that bars challengo and ho
will poll an unprecedented large voto noxt
fall should the Republicans nominate him,
and thoro seems to bo no doubt about them
doing so. The Ashland Local, edited by
our friend J. Harry James, says :
Tho Hon. D. B. Greon should, and will
bo his own successor ns ho deserves to bo,
and no pushing forward of ambhious
aspirants will avail to deprive him of this
meritod and woll earned honor. Ho is ro
cognizod among lawyers and judges as one
of the ablest and most scholarly Common
Pleas Judges in the country, and among
our Schuylkill county people he has wou
their approval by Ms stem and uncompro
mising judicial integrity. Schuylkill
county has an enviable record, in tho good
sonse, she has displayed In her efforts to
keop the judiciary freo from the political
mire?, that tend to destroy tho usofulnoss of

point to Judges Porshlng, IJechtel and
Green as their Common Pleas Judges,
second to nono in judicial integrity and
ability, and absolutely freo from political
prejudices and personal friendships, while
in the discharge of their duties. Tho peo
ple of Schuylkill county are satisfied with
their judges, they detiro no change, and
havo so oxpressod thcmsolvos heretofore.
Would it not bo woll for our young and
able friends, who havo "their oyes fixed"
for tho bench, to abide thoir time, until a
vacancy may occur from other onuses than
an expiration of term of office ; when it
will be our pleasure to aid them in reach
ing tho honored position thoir ability and
esteem entitles them to? There should be
no opposition to Judge Green's nomination
Our go-ahead and undaunted townsman,
James J. Franey, has shied his castor into
tho political ring and will inako a contest
for a dologateship to thu Constitutional Con
vention. There is only ono thing that can
be said against "Jim" he is a Democrat.
Intellectually and socially ho is ono of the
best follows in tho town, but ho has always
been an ardent supporter of and worker in
tho Democratic party nnd tho enemy and
his frionds aro always ablo to tell just
whoro ho stands. That is moro than can
bo said of a number who have succeeded in
securing fat olllces in tho county at the
hands of that political faction. His loyalty
to his party makes "Jim" a formidable
candidato and, If tills section must be rep
resented by a Domocrat in the convention,
tho IIkkalu has no hesitancy in saying
that ho is tho best man tho Democratic
party can decido upon. Tk-it he will at
tend the convention regularly and ondoavor
to make himself heard whenevor the op
portunity presonts itself cannot be ques
Tho Williamsport Oaiette Bulletin
speaks In tho following terms of tbo latest
muss in which tho handful of ragged-edged
Philadelphia Republicans havo dabbled :
"Thoro is nothing new or startling in tho
latost onslaught of a few scattering Ropub
licaus against Quay's leadership iu thi
state. It is well-known that most of tho
signers of tho so-called address represent a
class ever ready, willing and too anxious
to stab, at overy favorable opportunity,
what thoy torra their own party. Theso
men aro not tho loaders of Republicanism
in tho state they aro mischief-makers aud
strifc-breedere, and aro urged on by tho
D. mocratic party. Their latest effort in
behalf of tho opposition will havo littlo In
fluenca on the rank and file of tho party.
It is even intimated, and thorn is a very
strongsuspicionof correctness of the assert
ion, that somo of tho shrewd Democratic
leaders were not unaware of tho movo that
was being made by those so-callod Repub
licans. If Quay is objectlonablo to tho
Republican organization tho remedy can
be applied without tho assistance of tho
enemy, and it is to bo hoped that tbo lie
publican party in Pennsylvania wUl not
permit itsolf to be led into a trap, so shal
low that oven tho blind can seo."
An Indianapolis dispatch says : Ell
Perkins passed through this city last night
en route lo Texas. "When asked how tho
protective tariff was working in the East ho
sa'd: "Tho wickod protectionists aro do
ing great darnago. Why, thoy aro break

35,000,000 a year to England for plush and

Another plush factory ha3 gone up at
Clark's Mills, south of Utica, another at
Catasauqua, Pa., until wo now have nine
big plush factories in tho United States,
and tho poor English plush factories are
working on half time.
"The Christian freo traders used to send
510.000,000 to Saxony for knit goods, stock
