SVlMMtlOIl TO POLITICS.
The reiort.that the Treasury Is sending
out a large supply of small bills to move
the crops is additional evidence that bet
ter times are near at hand. An increased
demand for money indicates an Improved
condition of trade, because money Is only
a medium with which to facilitate ex
change, and tho more of it is put In cir
culation the greater will be the volume of
It is impossible for calamity howlers
to longer ply their railing without becoming
objects of public riilicule. Prosperity Is
as certain as the seasons, and unless nature
falls to bring forth crops and yield her usual
abundance, the United States is entering
upon an era of wealth-creating that has
never had a precedent. Already the tido
basset in and shops and factories are once
again assuming their old-timo activity,
and when our bountiful harvests are mar
keted every industrious person will have
an opportunity to participate In this
Improved state of affairs.
This change for the better is not due K
politics. Party effort has obstructed rather
than promoted prosperity. The tariff and
financial Issues have in no way influenced
its return, nnd the only logical reason to
be offered for tho welcome change is the
fact that the country's abundance, and the
thrift and Intelligence of its people, arc
.superior to adversities, brought ou by un
wise political agitation. For no one can
safely deny that the recent hard times was
the resultof bad, very bad political legisla
The personality of Congrefsmen is al
ways of political and facial Interest to
Washington, but probably no upheaval in
pcrrpcctlve will excite more comment
than that which is promlred from Phila
delphia when the next Congressional
elections come to pars.
The Quaker city has rtocd almost alone
in the w:ioIe country in its difposition lo
continue, term after term, its representa
tives in Congrefs. There is probably no
other r pot in the States which has followed
this policy ro persistently. For long j ears
there has been no change in the five repre
sentatives from Philadelphia, 'Including
the suburban city of Germantown, except
Congressmen from this series of dis
tricts havo been prominent In the political
and social life of the national Capital.
Kclley and Randall were for many
terms the leaders of their respective
parties in the House. O'Neill
was for several terms after the
death of Kelley the "father of the House.".
Gen. Binghatu was conspicuous for his
ability, and was the chief artificer in
building up the existing postal system of
tho country. Gen. Harruer was of a more
retiring" bent, but in his quiet way did a
.great work In various committees.
All this is changed, or will be changed
in the near future. Death carried to an--other
parliament Kelley, Randall and
O'Neill. They were succeeded by men who
bad no prospect for more than a brief
tenure, and their Congressional lives hare
been shortened undoubtedly by the bit
ter factional fight which resulted In a
remarkable victory for Senator Quay over a
combination of the shrewdest opposing
politicians of the State. In this vital Quar
rel not one of the Republican Congressmen
elect, bad the courage to take a hand, with
the exception of Gen. Binghamg, who flop
ped to the losing side at the moment when
everything seemed to be going against
Quay.. In'lbcncxt moment, as politics go,
the Senator had the majority and Dingham
was left in the unenviable position of the
late Mr. Maginty. Harmer, Adams, and
Key burn thought it was the shrewd thing to
cither do nothing or to pin their faith In
a weak way to the weak State administra
tion of Gov. Hastings.
Til's proppects arc, therefore, judging
from telegrams to The Times from Penn
sylvania, that all of these Republican Rcp
rereutatives will be changed. Fnllndel

dall and O'Neil In view. Is ready for "a
new deal," and Quay, nlwaya bent upon
paying political debts and executing politi
cal revenges, is quite of the same mind as
;tU9 Quaker City. In consequence of this
combination of circumstances, there isa
etrong probability that several handsome
and familiar figures will lie lost to view
In th" Ilouxc of Representatives of, the Fifty-fifth
GHEED OF COMBINES.
Prices of structural iron and steel, as
well as of other forms of these metals,
were announced with some flourish, a
day or two ago, to have advanced at
the rate of from two toliree dollars a
ton. Almost simultaneous with this the
news was telegraped to The Times that
one of the largest stove 'manufacturers of
the Southern Stales had suspended pro
duction, and that probably all similar
factories would follow In Its wake.
The reason given for this somewhat
gloomy prospect was that the advance In
the price of iron precluded the manufacture
of stoves at any reasonable profit, and
the excuse given for this rise In price of
structural Iron and steel was that there
was a greatly Increased demand. Just
how the manufacturers of these products
Used lu the manufacture of stoves and
railway accessories and bridges can rea
sonably explain their advance of prices
Is not apparent. Production costs no more
than before. The price of labor has not
increased, "and raw material Is as cheap
as It has lieen iu any recent time.
It is evident , therefore, that the advance
in prices of metal products Is artificial,
and wholly due to on agreement between
manufacturers who Save been able to cor
ner the market, ni'd who have no broader
view of affairs than a dctcimination to
make -all they can temporarily out of the
'general improvement of butinefs. 'This
Is a iiolicy fo short sighted that it n rilr
the severest condemnation. This com
bination of manufacturers is subversive
of progress and prosperity and btrikes
down the very foundation upon which
It would rear iUe-lf." It is a mlcidal policy
which is ae founding when one contemplates
the usual ragaeity of American manufac
turers. It muft either result lu a speedy
return to prices which will yield but a
fair profit or it must call Into prompt com
petition the European rival.
As a general proportion, corporate
and combined greed overreaches itrelf,
and the iron and steel manufacturers are
apparently dispored lo give a new illus
tration of this truth.
CAHLISTjE and silver.
- Mr. Secretary Carll-Ie lias been so se
verely critlcf-ed by some of the Democrats
of the South and West In regard to his
policy upou the money question that he
has been led to write a letter In reply
to certain strictures of Judge Reagan, of
Texas, using the arguments of that gentle
man as a basis of reply to all of his

as has been asserted and that lie attempted
on more than one occasion to modify

All of this 1s outside of .the question of
the real relations of silver and gold, or
of the laws which now regulate metal
due regard to the coni-
merclal necessities of the country.
only question Involved In this brief
discussion Is the honesty of expression
of Secretary Carlisle, and there can be no
doubt, taking his official record as a
beginning and conclusion, that he has
changed his base so redlcally that he
stands a conspicuous exception among
all public nieuof bis rank.
AFTER THE FAIR.
The day after the fair, to use an expres
sion as old as the antique fetes of the
"harvest home," always furnishes the
most sage and lucid opinion of the mean
ing and results of such an occasion. From
the after expressions, therefore. In regard
to the great celebration of Labor Day, it
is evident that the first opinions were not
only not exaggerated, but that they fell
short of a realization of the facts.
Memory of such spectacles is often more
vivid than the presence of them, and the
memory of this one gives nn elaboration
of its strength and enthusiasm which gives
a premonition of greater things to come.
II Is not the momentary spectacle which
Is Important, but the effect it must have
upon the days and impulses to follow.
Even a pebble tossed into the water car
ries ripples to the farthest shore, and the
menial agitation physically exhibited in
such a demonstration as that of yesterday
must have Its effect not only in this, but
in ail future generations lo the limit of
the ocean of time.
Following the marching and feasting.
this Is the serious and substantial view to J
lake of this red-letter day In the annals
of labor. Because all the good that is de
manded' falls to come, with a single ef
fort should In nn wise discourage the
thoughtful person who knows from his
tory that great changes are only accom
plished by the slowest processes.

Not in many years have nuu and wild
fruits been so abundant. The chestnuts,
probably the commonest nut in this sec

yield. The bloom was heavy and the

early season. Hickory nuu, walnuts, beech
nuts, and chinquapins are doing nobly,
and If their abundance means cold weather
we will have it in the superlative degree.
Early small wild fruits -were poor, but
those which ripen late, such as persimmons,
plums, wild apples and haws are making
it up and doing nobly.
So far no wild geese have been killed,

"We will have that dog." said Attorney
Albright, who figured iu the famous Ernst
court has no right toorder theanlmal killed.
Under the act of Congress it Is specifically
stated that only upon the third convic
tion of keeping a fierce anil dangerous dog
may the killing order-be issued. Now the
Commissioners come and make a police
regulation which says that the police court
judge may order n fierce and biting dog
killed at ofce. Fierce and biting and
fierce and dangerous are undoubtedly
synononious In this case.. The whole
question is whether the iiice regulation
supersedes the act of Congress.
"If we can obtain our writ- of halieas
corpus, certiorari or prohibition the case
will go to the. Supreme Court, and then and
there, once for nil, will be decided this
question ns to the police regulation."
"They are not worth the paper they arc
written on," added Lawyer 8IUers, who
is associated with Mr. Albright in the case.
"Resides, the dog Is the personal prop
erty of Mr. Gerstenberg. He cannot lie
deprived oMl according to the Constitution
of the United States without due process
of law. This can only be done In a civil

Maj: Ealdwin, of tho Chippewa Indian

in organizing free stiver clubs all over the

evident that he desires to again be the Dem
ocratic nominee from the 81xth district
next year. He says Cleveland would be
strong enougli to secure a delegation were

Mr. Baldwin says It Is preposterous to
think ot the President being after the nom

Many officers are in distress in conse
quence of the refusal of thepay department
to cash their vouchers. The temporary
failure of the Government to pay enlisted
men does not materially interfere with
their comfort, but In the case ot officers
it takes away from them tbelr actual
means of subsistence.
The failures of tbe appropriations com
mittees of the last Congress to note the
fact of the change In. the law seems to
have been largely due to the failure on
the part ot the late paymaster general
to call tbe attention of both branches of
Congress to tbe result of tlje abolition of
retained pay. It can be salt that the de
ficiency for the next fiscal year will be
fully. $200,000, unless Congress, in tbe.
deficiency appropriation provides for
an increased appropriation, which It will
doubtless do. Meantime, tbe officers and
troops will be paid until such time as the
appropriation Is expended, which will
not probably be until early next spring.
This will afford Congress, when It meets,,
ample time to provide for the additional
appropriations needed to pay tbe troops
tbe amounts due them under tbe contract
of enlistment and to meet tbe monthly pay
of officers. W. E. Annln in Salt Lake

The Last and Greatest Success of
"the Silent Man's" Life-Victory
Sits Well on Him.
(From the New York Herald.)
Senator Matthew Stanley )say, whose
matchless leadership In Pennsylvania poli
tics lias been proved by his election In the
chairmanship of the Republican State com
mittee over the strongest opposition that be
ever encountered, has a political history
reaching back forty-two years. Perhaps
tbcre has b?cn no struggle in which he has
taken a keener Interest than this last one.
U has not reached tbe period of decline In
life, but is entering upon that mellow age
which gives him the strongest desire passi
ble to maintain his proud pallidal position
a few years longer. He was eager lur the
test. The test came and he Is once more
master stronger in hlsstrooghold than ever
Bitter was this last fisht that Quay waged
because It was a family affair, nnd at this
very hour ot his triumph he points not only
lo his iron hand that killed his foes, but
also la his velvet gloves that soothed the
feelings of his beaten brothers. This Is,
in epriorue. the secret at Col. Quay'ssuccess
iu political life. He knows when to use
the Iron hand, and when to use the velvet
glove. He steers when the fight is over
that beautiful middle course which capti
vates and charms human nature, because
from it there Is scarcely uny room for
You may n longer wonder where Quay
gets bis fighting blood, for it Is a sturdy
Scotch ancestry that gave it to him. His
father, aPresbyterlancIergyman, reared his
son to withstand the storms of life and to
make bis word a band. And even In his
tender years be showed the drift at his mind
toward political sagacity. When his father
brought home a Bible and a sword he asked
his son which he would have. He was ta
choose one and the other was to be a gift
for his sisler. The boy wanted both. He
chose the Bible because he knew that the
sword would beat no use to his dear sister.
It is needless to say tbat this shrewd move
While Quay was a student at Jefferson
Cojlege, Canonsburg, Pa., and during his
term ot study before admission to the bar
Iu 1S34, at the age of 21 years, he showed
sagacity at all times in eietylhtng that he
did. His vigorous passion for politics led
him to make his first impression in Reave:
county and the western section of the State
and In 1855 he was appointed prothonotary
of the county, was elected to a full term
laterand re-eleited-Theu came the warand
he became conspicuous under Curtln, the
great war Go veruor. Hccommanded the One
Hundred and Thirty-fourth I'pnnylvania
Volunteers for a lime and at tbe battle ot
Fredericksburg, Gen, Taylor compli
mented him for his gallantry. Quay re
signed from the army on DecembcrT, 18C2,
to accept the appointment ot State agent
at Washington. A year later be was made
Military Secretary ot the State, and It is
here that we date the real beginning of his
remarkable rise lu politics.
Quay first worked to bo elected to tin
State legislature, succeeding In 1805.
For two years he was the devoted servant
ot Curtln. He assisted the latter In a futile
effort to check the ascendancy of Simon
Cameron In the control ot the' parly. Cam
eron, though in bad odor, was a tower" of
strength, because be controlled a great
fortune and was not afraid to divert it
into the channel or politics in a business
like Way. Curtln was,soon hors dc toni
bat, and Quay was defeated for tbe
Speakcr'bip of the House. Col. Quay saw
no personal advantage In a continued war
fare against the Camerons, for J. Donald
Cameron was working with his father. He
was ambitious to rule with those who
ruled. He aspired to control men In suc
cessful, not losing campaigns.
The conversion of Quay to the Cameronia
dynasty was complete. At this period Rob
ert W. Macey was the ablest lieutenant
of tlio Camerons, but soon lu? was replaced
by this rising young star. Tbe latter was
more- aggrceslve and suited the time.
Quay's zal was alwa'ys burning; his mag
netism was Irresistible. Where diplomacy
or argument or brilliant strategy was
needed; where men were to be approachc s
by persuasion in all tbe varied forms that
'liereuaslon In political contests Is capable
of assuming; where an enemy was to be
won with overtures, or legislation to be
urged on lo rapid completion. Quay was
the genius of it all. Quay was not alto
gether careful of detail. He has always
ben the 'general for a great emergency,
where the very recklessness of dariug car
ries a mlnorltrto victory.
Senator Quay can ttand more abuse t
the square Inch than most men. He will
not let you eraitc the other cheek, but he will
pull you aside by the coat sleeve and begin
to argue with you. He will tell you that
you are wrong, and then proceed to show
in a itfaurlble and friendly manner that he
Is not such a bad man after all, but a vcry
genial hearted gentleman. His ability to
withstand abuse and slander lias won him
many friends. It is human nature to ad
mire a man wbo has tho pluck to endure
tbo smites as well as tbe smiles ot men.
Personally Senator Quay would neverim
press one. He bas no dandy manners, no
love for dress, no. desire ta shine in the
social world, no liking far tbe life ot a
literary man. He is In many respects a
composite character. He can content him
self alone or be can be happy in the midst
of bis friends. The colonel Is fond of his
lone fisherman habits, and he Is equally
fond of a chat with those who know him.
He Is not a eonversationalLst'ln the icnse
that he sivks to charm every person who
admires great ability, but when a Iriend
comes into his room In whom he las com
plete confidence be will open the doors ot
his speech and talk interestingly hour
after hour. Withal. In his pe-rsonal rela
tions he is gracious and unassuming. The
man wbo expects to find In him a perfect
type of a mere politician will be very
ne Is broad-'mlndrtl on all affairs, and
in tbe realm of literature lie Is no novice.
His reading Is of the most varied descrlp
lion, and he bas standing orders wittr
several publishing finns'of the country to
send bim all books of current Interest,
nis library Is not only well stocked and
choice, but Is Incrc-aslng every day, and
when he leaves thl3 life the man who
strays around the !xok shi'lves at his
home will rind that the ''silent man" of
Beaver County basbi-en a reader of many
books and bas profited by the wisdom
that they contained."
No adequate description can be given of
the personal attire of tbe junior Senator
from Pennsylvania. As he sat In the con
vention at Harrlsburg last Wednesday be
might have' been mistaken for a country
manDff on a lark at tbe seashore, with a
pair of soiled duck trousers, a neglige
shirt and a dark coat; He took oft the
coat as soon as tbe convention ball be-

ways drinks the finest whisky that is sold
In tbe land.
Senator Quay Is a man slightly above
the medium height. He has drooping eyes,
but when you talk to him he Is not
asleep. Xo matter how apparently triv
ial the conversation, he will listen to every
word you say, aud will reach an estimate "
very soon as to whether you are of any
worth to him. It Is this faculty of being
able to listen that shows to the observant
one the great force of his character de
liberation. Senator Quay does not for
get names, when those names are of any
ue. His memory is very retentive, and In
this lies much of his iersoual magnetisms
He is at all times courageous. When he
was challenged to go to the people for his
re-election as United States Senator In
1803 he cud so and the victory came to'liim.
He feels the pulse of the people and know
human nature to Its last chord.
At this hour his followers are looking
beyond the smoke of the luttle Just ended.
To them his election as Slate chairman
means not only a great Kepul lican major
ity lu Pennsylvania this fall. Lut the elec
tion ot a Republican Tre-ident In 160G.
They expect him to be the chairman ot tbe
Republicau National Committee lu 1696.
Meanwhile the Junior Senator Is saying
nothing aud sawing wood.
FLAYS OF THE KEEK.
A full and friendly house greeted Mr.
Robert Downing and b is accom phhed wife.
Eugenie Blair, at Allen's Grand Ojiera
House, where Ihey played the hero and
heroine In Sardou's somber tragedy.
As usual, when the capabilities of thea
actors are so familiar to people here, the
question mi not whether their Interpreta
tion of their roles would be artbllc. but
what of the new and lnltcresting Sardou
had given lo an always expectant public.
As In "Gismonda." tbe author treads on
very dellrale ground, but in "Helena" as
presented last night the delicacy of the
situation and condition is not bait so
obtrusive In tbe former play.
In "H'lcna" the grand motive is the
atonement for wrong done the heroine, by
a practical tst on the part of the hero. The
sublimity of the Injured heroine's character
lies in her forgiveness of tbe wrongdoer
for bis mercy shown to her conquered party
and fellow citizens.
Love as the basis of It all Is rather im
plied than expressed. Everythin? else in
the drama has been common property for
centuries, the historical incident!, being
drawn from the countless wars ot the
Guelphs and Ghibelllnes.
After the first. "second and third actr
Air. Downing as Duke Orso and Mls Blalr
as Helena were called before the curtain.
At the last call Mr. Downing made quite
a clever speech, iu which he thanked those
who had assisted him lu the production
ot the play, and who have been noted here
tofore In The Times.
Not the least attractive feature of tbe
evening's performauce was tbe dramatic
nraslc composed especially for this play by
Mr. A." Tregina, of the Manne Hand, wbo
directed tbe orchestra In person for tbe
entire week. Tbe overture and all ot tbe
extra-act music is alio -from tbe rcn of
Mr. Tregina, and tbe public bas at Ieart
a chance to Judge for tbemselvee of his
superior merits ns a composer ard director.
Mr. Tregina made a cloee f tudy of four
teenth century music in connection wlta
the "Helena" orchestration and revived
lo a remarkable degree the spirit of tbe
epoch. He bas adopted the Wagm-rtai
"mollv ' method and bandies It in a way
to Immensely heighten the cffcctlvcnefs
ot Sardou's latest tragedy.
The play will be given every night this
"The Derby Mascot." a clever nielo-
drania with excellent raclng.feature. was
Sroenteel last night at the Academy ot

always attractive, and the public was
not disappointed with King Faro and Grey

formance was Miss Katie Roouey ns Clem

appearance in the nick of time of Johnny

which buck dauciug and Irish imitations

A very amusing concoction ot mirth,
music, and seasonable noveltien was pre
sented last night by G. E. Miaco's City Club
al the Lyceum Theater. The show visits
Ibis city annually, but this season they
have a l)o j 1 the best combination that they
