overhauling of the Treasury an im
mediate duty, and the consequences of
such an overhauling tho preservation
of tho interests of tho state ? Why
ignore this fact? It Is as much u part
of the record as that Bardaley stole tho
mouey. Republicans can answer the
elaborate arraignment of the platform,
with the simple averment : "If In our
misfortune, a misfortune that might
befal any bank or institution, we have
been betrayed by an unworthy ser
vant, wo likewise have servants swift
with the majesty and terror of the
law." It is because that Republican
clllcials did their duty that this mis
creant, this Republican shadow of a
Democratic Tweed, is In jail. It is be
cause that Democratic ofllcials failed
to do their duty that he was not sent
tojail mouths before.
It is unfortunate that the Demo
cratic leaders Hhould narrow their can
vass into this limited, untenable
ground. The Star haj held from the
outset thut honesty and expressed
political convictions are not relative
terms; that it is a reflection upon the
integrity of a proud aud honest peo
ple to infer that opinions upon high
national questions mean an acceptance
or condonement of crime; that men
are honest or dishonest so far as they
are really Democrats or Republicuns.
The convention did not think so, and
therefore why say it? Thero is no

to criticise this narrow Little Pedllng

was written. There was a time when
the great Democratic party of Penn
sylvania met in convention to unite
with its brethern in other states in
governing Democratic policy. There
never was a time when the need of
that voice was more important than
at present. We regret that our Dem

THE TROUBLES TO BE SETTLED
The Battle That Continued in tho

Greek Catholic church of town and in a

Tho tactions havo united and they aro
now turning In a body against Rev. An
drukowicz, tlio priest who has ho d tho
church In defiance of all efforts legal and
otherwise to depose him and who, or
months, conducted services under tho pro
tection of a body of special poico.
It will bo remembered that two years
ago Kov. Wolanskl, wlio roundel tho
church, returned from Lornborg, Galicinj
and claimed that ho was empowered by tho
Archbishop of that place to resume charge
of tho church.
Rov. Wolanski'a visit horo caused somo
excitement among Rev. Andrukowicz's
adherents and tho latter rofuod to meot
tho former, or treat wilh him in the mat
ter. Kov. Wolanski remonstrated and
Rov. Andrukowicz was defiant. Rav.
Wolanskl visited the church to hold mass,
but was stopped at tho door by tho special
police armed with Winchesters and put on
guard by Rov. Andrukowicz and tho
Documents from tho Archbishop of
Loinborg, purporting to" authorize Rav.
Wolanski to tako charge of tho churoh
wora noxt producod, but Rev. Andru
kowicz declared they wero not authentic
and of no valuo.
Then Rev. Aubuekaviez arrivod from
Lornborg, armed with documonta author
izing him to tako charge of tho church,
but ho was treated by Rov. Andrukowicz,
as Rav, Wolanskl had been troalod.
Finally the latter gentleman became dis
gusted and returnod to Oalicia, where he
now has charge of a lffrge congregation.
Rov. Aubuskavicz tried to roason with tho
church tru;toes, but thoy wore pledged to
support the priest in charge and would not
Rov. Aubuskavicz noxt gavo up and took
charge of a church in Shamokin and has

Sinco that timo Rev. Andrukowicz has
enjoyed possession of tho church hero, un
disturbed. But his reign will not bo peace
ful much longer. Tho friands who stood
by him in his fight against Revs. Wolanskl
And Aubuskavicz have at last bee mo con
vinced that tho documents Drought horo by
those two priests were genuine. They
recognize at last that Rov. Andrukowicz
was legally suspended and thoy now doqluro
that they can no longer attend tho church
while he claims to havo charge.
Accordingly, all factions of tho church
are now united and a determined effort will
be made in a few days to oust the priest.
Yesterday a new board of trustees was
elected. They arot Andrew Kossar,
Afton Michalskl, Joseph Kowal, D. Saloy,
Mike Donnyanczyl, George Kornc, Tomkp

Mike Urvan, George Wrelick, Panko
Sembrat and Goorge Koval,
The board has notified Roy. Andrukowicz
that tho suspension made by the Archbishop
of Lornborg, has boon found authentic and
that the church must be surrendered,
i Rov. Andrukowicz says ho will not sur
render until tho congregation refunds to
him ?1,900 he claims to have invested in
the church. Tho trustees eay they want
tho priest to make an accounting and if ho
call show thorn that ho Invested $1,000 in
the church they will pay him the uiouay.
Tho trustees are determined that Rev.
Andrukowicz sball surrender tho church
and, if neeossary, thoy will go into court
to compel tho priest to make an accounting

If Shenandoah had a ?."0,000 industrial
fund on tap business would be nuito differ
ent in the town ; in fact tho cry of hard
times would not be heard, and for tho roa
son every person would bo fully employed.
Gradually tho ompty housos would fill
with prompt paying tenants and in time
now homes would havo to bo orocted to
supply tho over increasing demand for
housos for tho new comers. Such a picture
presents quite a contrast with tho situation
of to-day, and yet it is a faithful illustra
tion of tho d ffaronco between trying to
make a town and lotting a town go to
pieces rather than to raise a finger to save
it. This wholo question of building up tho
town by encouraging manufacturing re
solves itself Into this: It is simply boost
ing tho town in order to help tho Individual
by making his possessions moro valuable.
A parallel can bo found in tho policy

make tt $300 or $1,000 improvomont with
th 9 certainty of incrcaaing-i'no market val
uation of his property 1,600 to $3,000
Surely a person would not hesltato long
ovor such a prospect, and yet tho samo
person fails, perhaps, to seo that investing
in manufacturing enterprises will havo a
similar effect on tho read estate of Shonan
doah, and instead of benefiting but one
person will beni fit every person directly or
indirectly in the town or noar vicinity.
That planting and fostering industrial en
terprises will affect tho town, as shown, is
oasily proven by the record of ovory pro
gressiva city or town in tho country.
Manufacturing ontorprisos attract popu
lation; population consumes food proJucts,
gouds, wares and merchandise; rents
housos, buys land, erects buildings, patron
ize! schools, colleges, railways and, high
abovo all, creatos wealth, and scatters
monoy in ovory direction. Shonandoah, ia
hesitating to plint industries, is practically
strangling herself, and that is just why the

shameful sacrifice. Shenandoah Bhould bo
