l'or Governor
For Lleutonnnt Governor
Secretary of Internal Affairs
State Treasurer
For Congress,
For State Senator,
We note nearly every day by news
dispatches from New York that May
or WILLIAM J. GAYNOR, now on
tho high road to old-time pugnacity
and vigor after his recent business
contact with a sore-headed ex-doclc
employe's bullet, is willing, probably
anxious, to take the Democratic nom
ination for governor of tho state of
-which he today stands boldly forth
as the most picturesque and proinl
nent figure save, of course, the al
ways picturesque and always promi
nent personality of THEODORE
ROOSEVELT. We are not surprls
ed by the New York Mayor's tacit
admission that he Is ready to try
It. We have believed from the time
he commenced to cause his friends to
say that Mayor GAYNOR thought
he had nothing to gain by a term at
Albany that he would ultimately
come out as a receptive if not as an
actually solicitous and aggressive as
pirant for the Democratic nomination
for tho governorship that he would
make it appear in the long run that
the progressive element of the York
state Democracy, if there really be
such a thing, had forced him to make
the race in a year which Dnds the
Democrats with one admittedly pow
erful candidate and the Republicans
in possession of no man who quite
measures up to tho unusual standard
of Gov. HUGHES.
It cannot be denied without the
boldest and most bullheaded kind of
partisan lying that WILLIAM J
GAYNOR would make an exceptional
ly formidable gubernatorial candidate
for the New York Democrats to top
their ticket with at the Saratoga con
vention. He is far and away the
most respectable and even command
ing figure the Democrats on the other
side of the Delaware have been able
to produce since the halcyon days of
Mayor with an axo for useless and
cumbersome municipal commissions
that gave ignorant, incompetent Tam
many suckers fat berths at $2000 to
$7000 a year and no work at all to
render in return for this very com
fortable compensation; and ho has
been a Mayor with a crushing club
for police graft the hitherto un
squelchablo obstaclo in the path of
the city's progress. He won thous
ands of New York hearts by declar
Ing, the day he went to City Hall to
be sworn, that tho people of New
York wanted a reasonably wide open
Coney Island on Sundays and that
ho would give them the kind of a
police commissioner needed to open
Coney and keep her open. He has,
beyond all question, made himself
almost immeasureably stronger with
tho hero-worship crowd a sickening
but at the same time a not Incon
siderable olement In all parties by
his plucky fight with death after that
shooting moss on board ship at Ho
boken. If Mayor GAYNOR is ever
to be strong enough to make the At
bany race ho is strong enough to
make it today.
But thoro Is opposition of one very
forcible, even if contemptible kind
to the Albany hopes which must,
If successful, lead not only to Washt
lngton hopes but to Washington
expectations of the New York May
or. Ho will bo knifed to tho burning
day by HEARST and the HEARST
newspapers, a crew to be counted bo
low tho Harlem. Though tho Inde
pendence League Is deader than
doornail, there aro Independence
League men In whoso breasts thoro
Btlll rankles tho hatred of GAYNOR
that found birth when GAYNOR, on
tho threshold of his campaign, pub
licly gave tho Ho to HEARST and
received it In return, and which was
intensified by tho Mayor's terrific at
tacks upon tho personal probity of
HEARST at the time tho COLAHAN
public works payment scandal receiv
ed such thorough newspaper ventila
tion. Theso men can .probably cast
from 70,000 to 100,000 votes for
In whose nomination pie tho yellow
o'urnallst of New York and Chicago j
and St. Louis and San FranclBco
shall have had a finger. i
Wo think, on tho wholo, that the
opposition of the HEARST element
will hurt GAYNOR In his necessary
effort to get 100,000 majority below
the Harlem with which to offset tho
Republican figures from up-stato
more than tho presence of THEO
DORE ROOSEVELT in tho party
councils or on tho stump during a
campaign that Is to fairly snap and
bristle with the real ROOSEVELT
brand of strenuoslty. Thus fnr It is
not plain that tho Republican nomi
nee for governor Is to bo a man of
choosing. We admit that ho could
not If ho tried pick out a man cap
able of putting more personal color
Into a campaign than GAYNOR may
absolutely be depended upon to put
Into this one. ROOSEVELT on tho
stump will be a booster for the Re
publican cnndidate.-.biU tho popular
ity of tho candidate spellbinders is
not always the greatest vote-coiner
in New York status Our Impression
Is that candidate GAYNOR, though
running better up-state than . any
Democrat has run since GROVER
CLEVELAND'S dny, would get his
most disastrous cut in New York
county aud to somo extent in his
home county of Kings; and that his
defeat for Albany w.ohW. Imperatively

The effort for a hospital for
Honesdale is based on the 3trong
undeniable appeal of humanity.
Such an institution has long been
Imperatively demanded by the medi
cal and surgical needs of Honesdale
and tho more accessible parts of
Wayne county. ScrantOn Is too long
and trying a ride for a sick man or
woman, particularly ono who faces
the ordeal of an operation. The
Honesdale hospital agitation is not
new, but tho cause is one that urges
itself with little verbal exploitation
The meeting of Honesdale women at
the Lyric Wednesday afternoon
should be attended by every, woman
who wishes to bo helpful to suffer
ing neighbors. With the organized
aid of the large-hearted, charitable
women of Honesdale the project can
be put through.
A wealthy New Jersey woman who
died recently left $1,000,000 to Tus
kegee institute. Money could not be
better expended. The Institute has
done an enormous amount of good
In raising the standard of the South
ern negro and helping solve the race
problem. Its work, by the way,
should be particularly appreciated In
New Jersey, which has more black
people in proportion to population
than any other Northern state. The
negro Is getting to be a distinct
nuisance In a great many South
Jersey towns, and If the coming 1m
portations of colored population from
below Mason and Dixon's line can
be made to consist of men and wom
en tolerably well educated before they
leave tho "Solid South" for a North
ern home, New Jersey will emphatl
cally he the gainer.
Pen Argyl is to hold an Old Folks
day yearly. The recent celebration
was a success, and all who assisted
are to be complimented on the suc

spirit which has prompted such an
honor to old folks, runs a news Item.
This is a first-rate Idea, and we
trust the Old Folks day in Penu

and comfortable little spots on the
whole map of Pennsylvania, may be
an annual feature rewarded from the
outset with the kind of results that
are pleaded for by Its promoters.
An annual Old Homo week In so

well as a benevolent movement. In
theso hurly burly days of selllsh, cut

cleanest and most decently-lnten-tloncd

to dog-oat-dog methods of doing
business In order to nchlovo a live

paid to tho older folks who not only
havo borno tho heat and burden
of their day but who perchance may
be able to drop a valuable word of
suggestion and advice to tho younger
blood, so prono to know it all. Thero

Not seldom havo dogs moro affec
tion and nttentlon showered upon
them than babies have. Somo time
ago a woman in ono of our Inland
towns lost a pot dog by death. Her
grief was Indescribable. Tho dog
had a most elaborate funeral, lying
in state and burled in a favorlto
spot In tho garden. Tho services
of a band wore sought to play fu
neral dirges, but the members balk
ed at playing 'over a dead dog.
More recently a wealthy mnu paid a
great price for a special car In
which ho might travel with hla dog
from ouc side of the continent to
the other. It Is to bo hoped tho
dog appreciated tho favor. Perhaps
In both cases tho dogs were moro
worthy ns dogs than their owners
were as human beings. Bristol

Loyalty to his friends does not1 ap
pear to have been one of the virtues
of William H. Berry, any moro than
was loyalty to his political organiza
tion. Back in the years when he
was state treasurer of Pennsylvania
Mr. Berry had a political loan from
Col. James M. Guffey. That is, It
may be called a political loan, be
cause the two politicians were then
friends and the security given for the
money was so slight as hardly to be
worth consideration. At a rorceu
sale In Pittsburg the other day the
twenty-seven hundred shares of
Berry Construction company stocK,
given to secure tho $15,000 loan
from Mr. Guffey, brought only $700.
Mr. Guffey had carried this note of
Mr. Berry's and placed It In the
bank only when It became necessary
In tho conduct of his business.
When Mr. Guffey made an assign
ment the bank proceeded to sell the
Berry securities and they brought
a little less than five per cent, or the
face valuo of the note. Granted that
It was a business proposition and
that some time Mr. Borry would have
made good his obligation, thero re
mains his treatment of a menu,
which will be of Interest to all vo
ters In tho stato of Pennsylvania.
Mr. Berry esteemed the favor and the
friendship of Mr. Guffey when it
was useful to him. But afterward
ho was willing to deuounce and re
nounce tho Pittsburg Democratic
boss, forgetful of favors and assist
ance In his time of need. Frleud
shln that endures and is bounded by
honesty, consideration, character and
forgiveness Is a very heautmu tiling,
But friendship of tho kind which Mr
Berry displayed in his relations with
Mr. Guffey must exclto tho disgust
and tho antipathy of all honorable
men. It will bo ono of tho consid
erations In tho voting next Novem
ber. If Mr. Berry has any explana
tion of this transaction with Mr. Guf
fey It will bo pleasing to tho voters
