Every political party has its wheel
horses, local, state and national, and
“when positions of honor arc to be fil led
"they should not be neglected to the
advancement of those who shirked the
. earnest arduous work. We sdy posi-
tions of honor because we do
‘not believe in paying a man for
public service more. than he is
worth in any other service. In other
* words, a man who is only compeiont
10 earn $60 a month at private employ-
ment has no good grounds for claiming
a position as 150-dollar man. The
slighting of these wheel-horses by the
present administration has led many
Democratic newspapers to comment
on that subject, the following from the
Newburg Daily Register being a fair
sample of the more conservative
. articles:
“Grover Cleveland was triumphant-
ly elected as the president of the
United States in 1502. He worked in
his way for victory, and so did many
thousand other Democrats, often mak-
ing sacrifices. Mr. Cleveland did his
work, and now has the honors, but
the same cannot be said of other Dem-
oersts, who might, with good sense, be |
recognized for the work that they have
dome also in the restoration. Mr.
Cleveland looked for 3 reward and ob- |
tained it, and why should not others?
Why should many of those who bore
the heat and brunt of the day remain
unrecognized for what they, too, have
done? If one victor has won the spoils,
why should not others? Can one man

'Galusha A. Grow last week for con-
national party wants the continued and
unchanging aifleiganece of Pennsylvania
Democrats it must abandon its free
trade tendencies. The vast army of
workman employed in the state that
. produces more coal, more iron and.
more oil than any other will not walk
.up to the polls and strike a blow at
their own living. [It is, in this State,
merely a question of revenue. If the’
vaiue of the great natural wealth of the
Keystone state should be reducédd by
legislation and the oufput diminished
minch or little the workingman would
feel it. It could not be otherwise. The
Hastings Tribune, in its partisan zeal,
criticised the CoURIER for the expres-
sion of independent thought on that
‘subject before election, but it now is
seen that this paper's position is heart-
ily sustained by 100,000 independent
votes, representing that many indepen-
dent thinkers. Democrats and Repub-
licans are nearly equal in Cambria
‘eounty, but protectionsts are largely in
the majority. Why should it be other-
wise? Are not the coal and iron: indus-
tries the very foundation of the d
county's prosperity? :
Almost ever since the beginning of
Patton some evil disposed persons
have been committing a series of depre-
dations which is quite enough to give
. a decided startling effect to the com-
munity at large, and there seems to
‘be practically no limit to their obste-
perous conduct. Petty thefts appeared
to be the fore-runner of these vagaries,
‘but no seeming notice having been
taken of them, the marauders became
bolder, until robberies have been com-
mitted almost before our very eyes
‘and the CoumiEr would respectfully
call the attention of the proper anthor-
ites to the restriction of the same.
These thefts have been committed with
such alarming frequency that the
| present indications are that unless
some steps are taken to make the pur-
! wait of these malicious intruders less
attractive we may look forward to pay
additional installments which may not
neem at all in view with our ideas of
| right and wrong. :
Itis said Gen. E. W. Hincks, who
died at Cambridge, Mass, & few days
ago, that “he enjoyed the enviable
be above such things when he enjoys gistinction of being the first man te
thers himself? Whatever may be the! fer his services for the defense of the -
reason for this, the effect is discourage-
ing to the rank and file of the party.
They see men out side the ramparts,
who, were they within, could do as
much good in the way of ‘Democratic
administration or legislation as Sexe
‘Mr. Cleveland. But they are not
side the ramparts, because Mr. Cleve.
land has not called them. It is not the
way of Andrew Jackson, who ate and
drank, and shared his victories with
the men who helped him win them.”
The Chronicle Telegraph gives the
following review of the industrial and
* financis] conditions as developed with-
in a short time past:
_ “In balancing books. on the week’s
" business there should be set down on
the credit side these items: 1, increased
government revenues and farther ad-
ditions to the treasuary reserve; 2.
“activity in the irom market, which
bas long been accepted as a barometer |
of trade; 3, resumption of work in
more mills and factories, although at
reduced wages; 4, less unfavorable
railroad earnings; 5, a smaller number
of failures; 6, larger export movement
“of grain in; 7, seasonable weather, which
has increased the demand for Season-
able goods.
On the debit side should be piacnd:
Wie wioivoy ot owns sud abou; 3, ack
of progress on the tariff bill in the
senate; 4, reopening of the silver
question in the house; 5, extreme de-
pression in Wall street, to which center
the country usually looks for signs of
eiodion that sunditions rei stetn quo.
The necessities of consumers and the
smaliness of the stocks are responsible
for the increased activity in production,
.but operations are still governed by
the hand-to-mouth policy, and are far
"from satisfactory. This state of affairs
~ will continue long as uncertainty re-
garding fiscal legislation. It is the
opinicn of some ‘of the best authorities
that the country is now prepared to
try: apy experiment which may be
forced upon it, but it is waiting for
congress Lo announce finally the exact
nature and extent of the experiment.
It is not willing to go ahead pending

The COURIER commends the citizens
of Patton for the decisive vote in favor
of issuing school bomds. This paper
advocated the issue of bonds with most
sincere motives and views with great
ment in favor of the same as expressed
at the polls. It indicates that Patton
is progressive and will have public
schools in keeping with the spirit of
advancement which gave the town its
water system, its sewers, ita brick
buildings, business houses, palatial
hotels and enterprises for the employ-
ment of labor. Good schools, such as’
it is now possible to provide, will give Port
‘ the town an intelligent and moral tone
‘which it could not possess without
them, and the present tax-payers are
not to be burdened with the full cost.
