same time, stamping with their condemna

There Is nothing that could so hearten He
pubtlrnns the nation oer and invigorate the
party as the emphatic Indorsement of Brum

Penrose. By this means only can the nation

We stand for 5fr. Palmer not because of.
but in spite of. his economic principles. Wo
sfnnd for him because ho toweis above his

the one Instrument through which Penn
sylvania may sot itself right before the na
tion, because the one hope of national Re
publicanism lies in thr election of this Demo
irat. Wo are for him becauo hi success
would deprive the Republican party of only
one vote in the Senate, and the defeat of Mr.
Penrose would probably give it ten.
It is a memorable campaign whali the
State enters, a campaign vital to its Indus
trial inteiests. It behooves an Independent
Republican newspaper solemnly to warn the
great body of citizens of the crisis which
they face. Tt is the duty of an honest news
paper to expose tho pietension thnt an or

themselves upon what the Hub has dono for
Journalism as well aa for all other branches of
polite literature, probably will take exception
to this statement, and hasten to remind me
that there was a Boston Evening Post as far
back as 173?.
In reply, assuming my Boston friends would
make this assault, I must remind them that
tits Boston livening Post can scarcely b
classed as an evening newspaper.
The Boston Dvcnlng Post orlfflnslly was
known an The Rehearsal, and under that tiami
was published about 1711. It was a weekly, and
more or less a literary paper, aftei tho style
of so many of tho little sheets In tho eighteenth
century. Xo reader of the Evening Ledger
would think of It as a newspaper in tho
modern sense. However, about two years after
It was In existence, It becamo the property of
Thomas Plect, who for a long time was
behoved to be connected with the authorship
of "Mother fJoose." That question has not been
definitely settled vet. but we may let that pass.
Plect maintained his paper as The Rehearsal
for some time, and then, without notice,
changed Its name to the Boston Livening Post.
Tlie. only other chango was tho time of publi
cation. It now came out on Monday evening,
whereas tho paper formeily bad come out 011
But wc must be entirely fair. Tlieie was still
another evming papei published In this
country before the Pernio lvanla Evening Poat.
Let us take a look at It.
Tills also was a weekly, and was printed In
New Yoik by Henry dc Forrest. This wns
begun in 17 W, but did not livo moro than ?
