THE CITIZEN', Kill DAY, SEPT. 10, 1010.
BURSTS KIS BOOM
Candidate's Crazy Talk Startled
REFORMERS REPUDIATE HIM
Indorsement of Democrats For Con
gress Too Much For Independent
Republicans to Stand.
Philadelphia, Sept. 13.
Everything everywhere In tho po
litical situation In Pennsylvania pro
Eagcs a phenomenal Republican vic
tory In November.
Not only are tho Republicans unit
ed, harmonious and aggressive, but
their old timo oppononts, the Demo
crats, are hopelessly divided nnd do
moralized. The nomination of John ICInloy
Tenor by tho Republican convention
for tho governorship, by a unanimous
voto and with every unsuccessful can
didate promptly and sincerely pledg
ing fealty to the nominee, has boen
followed by evidence of a practical
and Indubitable character of earnest
and onthuiastlc support of tho ticket
from tho great body of tho Republi
can voters of the commonwealth.
Fresh from an atmosphere of neigh
borly good will, Mr. Tener camo oast
and quickly found that while ho is not
personally as woll known hero, the
story of his career, of his manly quail
tics and his sturdy character, had al
ready impressed the voters and guar
anteed him a cordial welcome. Fol
lowing a flattering reception at a big
meeting of. farmers of Ducks and
Montgomory counties, Mr. Toner was
the central figure at an immense pop
ular picnic given on the outsVlrts of
this city under the auspices tho
active Republicans of northeastern
Philadelphia. Nearly fifty thousand
persons, men, women and children,
participated in this wonderful outing.
Republican success In Pennsylvania
has always been certain whon the
party organizations In tho counties of
Allegheny and Philadelphia have been
united and harmonious. Tho majori
ties that will he given to Mr. Tenor
and his colleagues in Philadelphia and
Pittsburg this year, it is predicted,
will be undoubtedly largo.
And tho same reports come from
practically all of tho Interior counties.
A Divided Democracy.,
What a spectacle Is presented by the
Democracy of Pennsylvania!
Grim Democrats and Berry Demo
crats aro at oach others' throats ovory
While present Indications give Grim
an advantage in that ho has tho rogu
lar Democratic organization in vir
tually every county In his favor, and
that with two or threo exceptions the
Democratic nowspapers of tho state
are supporting him, the Bryanlto fac
tion is keeping up a sharp fire of de
nunciation, not only of Grim, but tho
leaders responsible for his nomina
tion. Berry, himself, seems to have lost
his head. Ho has boon badly rattled
over tho many setbacks his candidacy
has received. He Is irritable and fret
ful and has made an exhibition of him
self upon several occasions during
tho last week.
Tho most sensational break ho has
made was his violent and unwarranted
attack upon the newspapers of Penn
sylvania In a speech at a farmers' pic
nic at Chestnut Hill.
Manifestly without preparation, and
with a display of anger that startled
and astonished his audience, Berry
launched a tirade of abuse upon tho
reporters, whom ho dubbed "newspa
per snipes," and declared that they
should "be burned at the stake." In
the same outburst of temper Berry ar
raigned tho Democratic loaders who
refused to favor his nomination.
"That bunch at Allentown," ho
shouted, "thought I would Ho down.
But I am just beglnnig and I want
stop until I have them behind tho
Berry's attack upon tho newspapers
bo admitted was becauso of tho pub
lication of tho fact that ho borrowod
$16,000 from Guffey, tho Democratic
boss, upon a note, for tho payment of
which Berry is now bolng suod.
Not only has ho not paid tho debt,
Tint hi admits that thnro war not a
penny of Interest paid, and t&j collat
eral which was put up to inmirn pay
ment of tho principal when dd at
public salo brought only J700,
Tho simple recital of the facts of
tho case is what Berry took offense at
and called forth his silly, venomous
and vindictive statements.
The disastrous effect upon tho Berry
campaign of this crazy talk of tho
candldato was at onco apparent to
evorybody Identified with tie bolter's
Tho endorsement by tho Keyetono
Party of many Democrats for congress
has lost Berry thousands of votes.
Nono of the substantial men who
bavo figured as leaders In reform
movements In Philadelphia have al
lowed their names to bo connected
with tho Borry candidacy, and while
there are many reasons why lutein
gent Republicans should not vote the
Berry ticket, admltedly the most po
tent cause for hostility to this com
blnatton Is found In the alliance with
Democratic aspirants for seats In con'

LAWRENCE 0. MURRAY.
Comptroller of Currency Has a S
Blacklist of Dad Flnanslors.
Washington, Sept. 13. The National
Association of Supervisors of State
Ranks has begun a threo days' con
vention here. The examiners gathered
at the treasury department and were
addressed by Lawrence O. Murray,
comptroller of the currency.
Mr. Murray proposed to the state su
pervisors a working co-operation with
the national bauk examiners. Ho de
clared he had in his olllce a list of men
who as olllcers of national banks had
proved incompetent nnd had been re
moved from olllce and said that If any
of them should make application to
orgnnize state banks their names
would bo furnished to tho state bank
ing authorities. In turn he proposed
that the state supervisors should fur
nish to tho national system the names
of men who had been driven out of
the state banks.
During the Inst eighteen months, the
comptroller said, lie had refused 108
applications to form national banks
because the men behind them had
been found incompetent or dishonest.
that there wns not enough business to
make the proposed institutions profit
able or that the applicants were men
without standing within their com
munities. Weak banks and failures, said Mr.
Murray, almost always come from
banks which should never have been
chartered. The practice of concealing
liabilities wns growing fnst he said.
and he described a system which he
believed wns quite general nnd which
he Intended to Investigate.

Tortured by. Piles!
Probably no one disease causes so much
pain and suffering as piles or hemorrhoids.
Tho victims are often in agony. Each
attack seems worse and more stubborn.
Wotk or business Is impossible. The nerves
ate racked, the system debilitated by loss
of blood and the end is an operation.
Tiles are tho penalty of neglect The
one chief cause of this trouble Is constipa
tion. When tho bowels are clogged the
trouble begins. Theso sensitive, painful
tumors are the result. If you aro afflicted
with piles begin with Smith's Tineapple and
Butternut Pills at once, and get a full free
passage of the bowels without pain or
griping. Take two of these wonderful lit
tle pills at night and two more the next
morning. Then tako one or two pills every
night at bedtime for a few days. You will
find that Smith's Pineapple and Butternut
Pills will cleanse the entire system, purify
the blood, invigorate the liver and so reg
ulate your bowels that piles will disappear.
Physicians use and recommend. They
form no habit. You should always keep
these little Vegetable Pills on hand. They
ward off many ills.
