Silence is Golden.
To speak wisely may not always be
easy, but not to speak ill requires
only silence.
The platform adopted by the
Chicago Convention is one upon
which every American citizen who
professes and supports the principles
of the Republican party can consist
ently and contentedly stand. It is
conservation In those respects where
conservation Is essential to the
safety and welfare of the Nation and
to the preservation of the fundamen
tal bases upon which our govern
mental institutions were originally
established and upon which they
have ever since been unswervingly
maintained. At the same time It
responds at every point to the exi
gencies of the new conditions which
have been created 'by the social and
industrial development of the age in
which we live. It recognizes tho
just and reasonable demand that the
affairs of the country should be ad
ministered in such a manner as to
promote the greatest happiness of
the greatest number and to insure
to the humblest citizen that equality
of opportunity to which before the
law he Is entitled.
CHANT. From the tone of a recent editor
ial In tho Fulton (Ind.) Leader, tho
editor has had the experience of
many others of the craft in trying
to convince some of tho merchants
of his town of the value of newspa
per advertising, and his views will
no doubt be generally seconded. Ho
"If a man is 111 he consults a phy
sician sooner or later, takes the

mechanically a specialist Is at onco

have the delicate mechanism read

man that has made tho study of
what each individual wants is con
sulted, what ho says goes, tho price
paid and that is tho end of it with
one exception, and that Is the busi
ness man, when his business flags,

Into the newspaper offlco and with

The renominatlon of President
Taft was tho great achievement of
the Chicago convention. Tho rest -is
little more than routine. If a can
didate for Vice-President could have
been found whoso nomination would
have conciliated any disappointed
faction and added strength to the
ticket, it would havo been good poll
tics to have nominated him, but
none such appearing there was no (
sound reason why the ticket of four
years ago should not bo renominat
ed In Its entirety.
James S. Sherman Is as strong 'De-
fore the country now as ho was then.
In the expeditious disposition of
business In the Senate and in decid
ing promptly and authoritatively the
parliamentary questions that come
before it, tho Senate has never had
a better presiding olllcer than tno
present Vice-President. It Is unusu
al to renominate a Vice-President,
and therefore, it is much in air.
Sherman's favor that he has gained
esteem and appreciation In a posi
tion where public men In tho four
years uneventful service usually
lose both.
Tho platform adopted at Chicago
Is a thoroughly Republican declara
tion of principles, but It shows in
nearly every paragraph some in
fluenco of tho agitation, recrimina
tions and professions that charac
terized tho stormy prelude and the
early sessions of this year's Conven
tion. Abraham Lincoln, who has
been so frequently cited In tho last
two months, Is held up to admira
tion and Imitation In tho declaration
for his "broad statesmanship and
tolerant spirit towards men."

Complains About Acid in Water.
Mr. Editor:
I think It Is about tlmo something
wns done concerning the emptying of
or allowing tho acid from factories
upon tho Dyborry to get Into that
stream. My cows have refused to
drink tho water and when they did,
before It became so bad, It gave thorn
rheumatism and tainted the milk and
butter, making it Impossible for mo
to sell tho same.
'Aside from this the banks along
the Dyborry of late have been strewn
with dead fish, largo ones at that.
They He there and the stench arising
from them is anything but pleasant.
Is there no ono to whom tho peo
ple living along this river enn apply
for aid or protection?
Yours truly,

Politically Dcd, London View
Third Term Man.
Tho London newspapers send
Roosevelt to tho political graveyard
with scant words of eulogy.
Tho Dally News says: "The ma
chine did no more than It always
does, or than Roosevelt taught It to
do when he forced Taft s nomination
four years ago."
The Standard says: "Ills hat has
been kicked Ignomlnlously out of tho
ring. His passionate urglngs to -his
followers to seize tho convention by
force frightened his calmer lieuten
ants, for a dim vision of 'the man on
horseback' began to be seen In his
mad plan."
The .Dally Express says: "If at his
last nomination Mr. Bryan had stood
on the Roosevelt platform, even he
would havo been howled down as a
wild man. Roosevelt seems to havo
achieved the ruin of the Republican
The Morning Post says: "Failure
Is failure, and Roosevelt has failed.
Taft has done good work, and it is
absurd to protend he is tho tool of
moneyed Interests."
The Graphic says: "That Roose
velt can gain anything by his bolt
except the ruin of his party is ex
tremely doubtful. He cannot hope
to carry more than an Ineffective
minority with him."
The Daily Chronicle says: "Taft
Is an able statesman, but not a poli
tician. In a straight fight no Demo
crat is Roosevelt's match at captur
ing tho radical vote, but as the can
didate of a new party his chances
are impossible to forecast."
The Times says: 'Roosevelt's fail
ure In the convention has been
complete, not only with the stal
warts of the regular party, but with
tho moderate progressives, who,
accepting his principles, deprecate
his action in splitting the convention
and have refused to join him."
No Longer Doubts- Veracity of
I have been disposed to doubt
some of tho animal and reptile
stories that come from the Monroe
county correspondents. It has al
ways seemed to mo that the trappers
of the Stroudsburg newspapers were
laying It on rather thick at times
In tho efforts to outdistance Ed.
Mott and the other Sun bear story
writers. However, when Prof. So
gulne, one of the owners of tho Wil
low Dell Hotel at Water Gap, came
in and exhibited to his astonished
guests a live red squirrel which he
had caught with his bare hands and
was holding by tho ears to avoid en
countering Its teeth, I was obliged
to confess that tho Monroe county
young men must bo quicker than
greased lightning when after small
game. Any one who has ever seen
a red squirrel in motion can imagine
the agility that must have been dis
played In picking up tho little ani
mal. This is a true one, and I am
not going to question the hunting
stories that appear In the StroudS'
burg papers hereafter. Scranton
