dard bearer of Tammany Hall. The
Tammany crowd are given full credit
for making Mr. Flower's nomination,
and the Republicans are shrewd
enough to try and make tho people
understand that Tammany is reach
ing out for tho control of the state.
Even Harper's Weekly, chief of mug
wump organs, sees this and has come
out for Mr. Fassett.
"Honest clean politics," is now
what soino Democratic organs advo
cate. Buch a thing as "honest clean
politics" what a charming thing It
would bo in York city and York
county. Cut tho dirtiest, foulest,
most corrupt jobbery and boodling in
our politics would be defended as
political virtue and political honesty
by these same Democratic organs. It
is ono thing to live up to a profession
of "honest clean politics" and another
to only make profession to decelvo the
honest people. Politics in York
county liavo not been honest and
clean. The boss politicians huvo run
tho machine, for all that is in it, to
help tho bosses, and have taxed the
people to foot the extravagant costs
The Wilmington (Del.) Bepubltcan
says: "Besides Secretary Blaine,
has been one of the most abused and
criticized members of President Har
rison's cabinet. But Mr. Wanamaker
minded it no more than tho moon did
the barking of a dog, and just kept
on the even tenor of his way in giving
the people safer and increased postal
facilities. His recent experiment of
extending the free delivery system to
small towns'hos proved an agreeable
success. They do Dot all pay the full
expenses but others pay considerably
more, so that tho government and tho
people both are the gainers by the
syBtem which Mr. Wanamaker will
recommend to Congress for adoption.
This Is an improvement of which any
man should be proud of having origi
nated, but It Is extremely doubtful if
tho Democratic House of Representa
tlves, with its accustomed polloy of
obstruction, will provide for it. If It
refuses to do so, it will be u strong
argument for the election of another
Republican House of Representatives,
and another Republican president

pal Church Yoatorday Throo
Now Mombors Taken in A
Vory Interesting Sermon.
Yostorday morning tho rifxht hand of
fellowship was extended to throo now mom
bors in tho Mothodist Episcopal church.
An appropriate sormon was preached by
tho pastor from Hob. II-l : "Thoreforo wo
ought to givo tho moro oarno3t hoed to tho
things wo havo heard lost at any timo wo
lot them sup," or as tho rovisod vorslon
reads: "lost happily wo drift away." In
cortalnconditions of wind and tido vossols
which aro being brought to tho wharf drift
away from it just whon thoy aro about to
bo socured and tho maslor finds itnocossary
to turn tho vossel around and stem tho
current in order to land his passengors.
Just so mon and women are brought up to
tho wharf of christian privilege and duty.
but just as we think tho connection is about
to bo made thoy "drift away." Somotlmos
it is a current of worldly caro and anxiety.
Business and housohold cares go far to ox
cludo tho "oarnost hoed" to tho things on
joined upon us in tho word of God. Or it
may bo a current of frivolity. This is tho
most formidable foe wo havo to oncountor,
light, trilling, shallow-mindod individuals
who havo "no root in thomsolvos" aro
never eminent for goodnoss nor for bad
ness either becauso thoy lack tho raw
material of which rigorous character of
any kind is mado. Spocial emphasis was
laid on tho fact that tho starting point in
oither mental or moral dovolopmont is
serious thought and deliberate aim that is
"earnest hetd." Of tho moro than ton
jhousand businoss failures last yoar in this
country only about four por cont wore do
liborately planned so as to choat creditors
and enrich the bankrupt And thoro aro
just as'.fow deliberate failures In tho ro-
ligipus world. Forty por cont. of tho bus
inobs failures wore duo to a lack of capital.
And this is tho cause of most of tho re
ligious failures. Tho businoss of otornity
requires a largo capital. But if wo ask wo
shall receive. Of tho easily prevontiblo
causes of business failures "outside specula
tion" heads the list with thirteen por cent.
So ontoring upon forbidden paths, tamper
ing with harmful Indulgoncios. squander
ing our spiritual resources upon what can
not profit aro easily prevontiblo causos of
religious bankruptcy. Tho euro for all
this is "moro earnest hood to the things wo
havo heard." In tho ovoning a now de
parture was taken. The soryico consisting
of tho Hallelujah chorus by tho choir, fol
lowed by fcripturo readings, and brief ex
positions upon tho subject of "Kepontanco
Us Nature and its Sourco." Those wore
interspersed with congregational singing
and prayor, thus affording a pleasant
variety without detracting from tho in
structivonoss of tho sorvico. Noxt Sunday
ovoning tho Junior Tomplo of Honor will
attend and listen to a special sermon at
